VH &v-f-rfmr -a tjf THE BIG BLUE UNION. E. C. WM. MANNING, HENRY, EDITORS. MARYSVILLE, KANSAS. Saturday, May 7, 1864. "Flao of thK free heart's hope and home, By angel hands to valor given; Thy stars have lit the welkin dome, And all thy hues were born of heaven. Forever float that Standard Sheet 1 Where breathes the foe but falls before us "With Freedom's soil beneath our feet, And Freedom's banner streaming o'erus The Swindler h Itdwl. Tbe result of the late State Convention through" which the people have effectually and emphatically denounced and repudi ated last winter's "usurpation" wrings from the l63' a-moufnful and piteous howl as they sink fo oblivion beneath the huge wage of popular indignation. Though daad. ther still claim the nrivileee of , , w stinking. They think that Kansas soil, though six feet deep", cannot cover them out of smell. This may b'e so, for in this particular they are strong. The journals that hare so strenuously defended and up held the Senatorial Swindle are at present filled with excuses and apologies for the same, or square denials of having ever endorsed it, or fair and open acknowl edgments that it was wrong and an out rage upon the people. In the same pa pers we see a howl set up against the State Convention and a general tirade against the people for having sent dele gates to Topeka who were avowedly oppos ed to the Swindlers. They call the Conven tion a "fraud" because McDowell, Legate, Vaughn, Jennison, and their followers who were there could not control things, and were hugely in the minority, having only ten votes against over sixty. Yet so eenerous were the majority- that they gave the insignificant minority a rep resentation on every committee. It is not necessary to expose all the meanness and make-shifts resorted to by the noto rious' (6S to induce the people to continue to repudiate them. Kansas knows them , and knows them only to despise. A per son would scarcely know that any of the original fraudites were in the country ex cept by the involuntary clasping of noses whenever one appeals in the community i mum i Watching and Waiting. The people of these United States are impatiently watching and waiting for the bloody flash and terrible thunder that shall soon burst from the war-cloud that is now gathering on the Rapidan in the hills of. old Virginia. We all feel the ominous silence that always precedes the awful storm, with now and then a distant peal of thunder. The goddess of Liberty to-day breathlessly awaits the mortal struggle that shall decide her future on the Ameri can continent; The strength of the Union army is now being concentrated for a death grapple with the hosts of rebeldom. If our leader, Grant, succeeds in crushing his antagonist, then all is well ; but, if by some misfor tune the rebels inflict a mortal blow or overwhelming defeat upon our arms, France through Mexico will acknowledge the Southern Confederacy, and England follow suit, the "peace" men" will elect their President this fall and,ourt nation is ruined. The disasters of Oulustee in Fin., Ft. Pillow, Tenn., Plymouth', N. C, and even the terrible blow that Banks received at Mansfield, La., in which he lost over two thousand men, several pieces- ot cannon, a large amount of small arms, supplies and transportation, though' all coming in quick succession in the spring's campaign, they are, taken severally or collectively but a trifle to the coining fray. The Post Office Department is advertis ing for bids,' to be recieved until the 14th of June, for carrying the Overland Mail, either from St. Joseph or Atchison, the contractor to supply all the offices along the route. It seems that Ben Hollidayhas not got the contract and it is probable he will not get it.' St. Joseph may be the starting point. A Falsehood. The editor of the Troy Investigator has taken (he job of abusing the citizens of Marshall county and of misrepresenting them to the exclusion of all other reading matter in his paper of the 30th ult. We are ssrry the gentleman has seen fit to take this courEe, as we formed a very fa vorable opinion of him while he was at tending Court at this place. He makes no direct attack upon our paper, but at tacks our friends and the citizens and af fairs of our county and we are in duty bound to reply. The Investigator says that "Col. Bowen packed the Convention at Marysville and procured the election of D. C. Auld as .Delegate to Topeka." The assertion is not true and the author knew it when it was penned. .The result of the Convention would have been the same had Col. Bowen not been here. Every oporrtunity was given for all to vote who wished to do so at the primary meet ing, and there was no unfair dealing. The Secretary of the meeting was Mr. Magill, the strongest 'frauditc' in the county, and one of the tellers was another strong 'fraudite.' The names of six men were placed upon a ticket, as delegates from Marysville township to the County 'Con vention that was to meet the next day. These men were known to be .opposed to the Senatorial Swindle. The ticket was shown to everybody and all were asked to vote it. In the mean time the editor of the Investigator (who, by the way, had come out here four days before court in order in order to help carry our County Convention in the Carney interest) in a sly way set the 'fraudites' to work and they 'fixed up" their ticket and cast ten square votes for it, while thirty-six were cast for the first mentioned ticket. Now considering that the Central Com mittee published through our paper a call for the township and county meetings, and considering that the people were careful to select men opposed to the "fraud" to represent them in the County Convention, and considering that the delegates so elec ted unanimously cast their votes for D. C. Auld, Esq., a staunch "anti-fraud" man, as delegate t3 the State Convention, and considering the fact that the editor of the Investigator attended both meetings and knows that himself and his'political friends were well treated, and received marked consideration at the hands of an intelli gent majority, and last, though not least, considering that it is none of your indi vidual business whether Marshall county repudiates or endorses the perpetrators of the Senatorial swindle, it is strango that you should return home and fling a sheet lull of abuse of ( the citizens of Marshall county to the public, because they ' can t see it" as you see it. Your abuse will harm no one but yourself. The UTew York Fair. The great Sanitary Fair held in New York City surpassed anything of the kind upon the continent and closed on the 23rd ult. The proceeds of the Fair amounted to over one million dollars. One of the principle interesting features, or doings, of the Fair was ballotting by visitors at one dollar a vote for the donation of a magnificent and costly sword to some offi cer of the army. Some visitors cast sev eral hundred votes for their favorite Gen eral. Gens. Grant and McClellan ran ahead of all others, and the result was 30,291 for the former and 14,509 for the latter. Thia is a novel and good way to make the copperheads contribute to the comfort of our soldiers. There was also a sword disposed of in the same way for some officer in the Navy, and Commodore Rowan was the lucky recipient. - i i Gen. Curtis has isued an order requir ing all army officers arriving at Leaven worth to report to the Fort and register their names, and state their business away from their command. This will likely cause a thinning out of the sHouldefMraps at Leavenworth, and be a benefit to the service. There is a eortain itinerant lawyer who' travels round with the Court ia''the' 2d Ju dicial District, and when vHe can't edge nimself into a case on a five dollar fee, he writes doggerel for the Troy Investigator. The last number of that paper contains a slanderous article written by this itinerant gentleman, on some of the citizens of Ma rysville. This same itinerant lawyer is a sweet tpecimen of humanity to talk about bogus Legislatures, pro-slavery men, and disloyalty, when but a few years ago he was made to run round the corners and alleys of Topeka by young Williams Jbr having uttered disloyal sentiments in the Capital of our State, and subsequently started for Missouri, because Kansas was too hot for him, but finally "fetched up" at Troy, a little iown go near Missouri that he might fly there for refuge in case it beeame necessary. .' ... 8P The withdrawal of Carney, is the bestjoke out, on Sam. Wood and Tom Ellis. They both voted for him, and jus tified their action in their respective pa pers. We feel sorry for you, boys ; but the next time keep out of such "frauds." White Cloud Chief. When we consider that the editor of the Chief is one of the original, odious "68" and has heaped untold abuse upon us and all others who denounced their ac tion, and since he has endorsed the "fraud in every issue of his paper since its perpe tration, it will bother the readers of his paper to see where the joke comes in so far as the author is concerned in the above paragraph. mm n It is said that the rebels in Texas have been receiving supplies of clothing of fof eign manufacture through Mexico into Texas, and that the trains conveying the goods were escorted to the Texas line by French soldiers. . The ladies of Ft. Leavenworth have raised over one thousand dollars and for warded it to the Treasurer of the Missis sippi Valley Sanitary Fair at St. Louis. A band of guerrillas numbering about seventy-five, "have appeared in southern Missouii, just up from below the Arkansas. The White Cloud Chief comes out in favor of Gen. Albert L. Lee as candidate for our next Representative in Congress. One thousand recruits for the Federal army are reported on their way from Germany. The massacre at Fort Pillow is only equalled in atrooity to that of Quantrell. and his murderers, at the ill-fated city of t) Leavenworth, and will doubtless bere-i, vended in the fullest manner. Terre Haute Express. Leavenworth is not ill-fated to anyi "alarming extent." The Express has con1 founded Leavenworth with Lawrence -I hence the error, perhaps. Leavenworth Bulletin. Perhaps the Express means your recent charter election riot. ) i i in From Frt Smith. More Rebel Barbarities. Will there be no end. to the rebel bar barities abd' how long must our brave soldiers, who may'fronv time to time fall into the hands of the rebels, suffer death by torture iu its most excrutiating forms before our Government will retaliate even to the extermination of the last blood thirsty villian that fights for ther traitors' despotism? A correspondent writing from Ft. Smith, to the Conservative, under date of April 17th, says : On the 5th Colonel Judson sent Lieut. McKibbern and twenty-six men of the Sixth, as an escort with Dr. Fairchild. At Roseviile & number of wounded, rebel and Federal, needed attention. Ten wounded Texans were in our hands, and (en of our own. When at Charleston, twenty-five miles southeast, they learned that 100 reb els had camped there the previous niyht. Six miles further they found a camp just abandoned. Three miles further on they were fired upon by fifty men from a ravine at the same time a large force appeared in front and both sides of the road. The Lieutenant commanding ordered a charge for the purpose of breaking through, which he succeeded in doing, and reached Kose ville with fifteen men. It was found that the Doctor and eleven men were missing. On a return to the scene of the attack, next morning, the bodies of nine men were found in the road, were they fell or were shot down. The evidence was plenty, of severe struggling. The bodies were strip ped of every particle of clothing, and hor ribly mutilated. Three of them were cas trated, and others had their ears cut off. One man lay without a wound on the body but his head and face so beaten with the butts of gun's as to be reduced to a pulp The features eould not be distinguished. The other two men, and the Doctor's body were found near the road in the timber. The Doctor was the only one who was not outraged. He was shot through the head and shoulders, after being taken prisoner. A .woman living near the scene of conflict , T-l 1 ! 1 111- 1 states mac raircnua torn nis captors tne errand he was on, and asked for his life. The others begged to be treated as pris oners of war. The reply was brutal oaths, fiendish execrations, and horrible assas sinations. It hardly seems possible that such fiends are human. The following are the names of the kil led in this shocking affair: S. A. Fairchild, Assistant Surgeon Sixth Kansas. Co. E. Corporal H. L Barber, Corpo ral J. Corvin, privates James Dunn, Bur ton H.
