THE LEAVENWORTH WEEKLY TIMES.
VOL,. XV. ILEAVENTTOKTH, KANSAS, THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 3, 1870. NO. 44. WnUu Wmtz THURSDAY, NOVE5IBER3, 1870. THE HEPIBUCAS COUJfTr TIl'MET. Our victory in the State this year will be very unsatisfactory unless Leavenwortk County is placed wholly and foreTer in the roll of true Republican Counties, in sympa thy with the rest of the State and with the National Administration. The Democrats, in their resolutions adopted on Monday, pledge themselves to vote for a Leavenworth man for United States Senator. Do they suppose that our people can be deceived by any such shallow artifice? Should the De mocracy carry this county, Leavenworth will himply be fehut out of all voice and con trol over the election of a Senator. The successful candidate will, of course, be a Re publican, probablv nominated by a Re publican caucus a caucus in which Democrats can hare no voice for the reason that they will be excluded from its meetings and deliberations. It is not in the jwwer of the Democrats of this county, MipMting their intentions to be the best, to aid Leavenworth in any way whatever in the hoicc of a United States Senator. And the Kimc rule prevail- in regard to general legis lation and to all business coming before the I.'gi'-lature. The officers of both brandies of the Legislature will be. Republican;, and the chairmen of com mittees and a majority of every committee nil! lc Republican. Ixsivcnworth is, there fore, (-imply throwing away her votes and her influence when the gives her suffrages to Democrats for members of the State Senate an-1 House. This fact is so plain that we do not !elicve it jHrsiblc for any intelligent oter to be deceived. In saying this we urikc no charges whatever against the Dem ucralic candidates. Ifthoy were men equal in ability and personal character to the Re publican candidates, it would fctill he true l liH a vole for them would be a vote thrown a nay a vote which cannot aid the candi dates themselves and which i a jtositivc in juiy to Leavenworth County. Let these fects I.1 remembered until election day is over, and let no secious statements made by our opponents remove them from the mind of any Republican voter. The triumph inaugurated by the Republi can (convention in September will be com pleted by a pure and honest Legislature which will ehvt an able and honorable Re publican to the United States Senate. In StMitemlicr we nominitcd D. P. Lowei for Congros, and we shall elect him nett week by an unprecedented niajor iiy. We must have, to work with Judge luwc in Washington, a Senatojyupf li'r." elnracter and attainments a man un-. stained, free from corruption and dishonor. The two can then co-oeratc and fitly repre- out Kans-as in Washington. The day of our redemption drawcth nigh, and this is not the time for 1e.iveuwortli County to stand aloof, to Ite idle, to vote for Democrats, ii even for doubtful men. iir other i-mdidatts on the County Ticket an- nut lem imort:iiit. The nominations aie as good as any ever presented to our peo ple. Every clement of the Kirty is repre sented, ami reprcscnte-d by a true and faith fill m in. Some signs of disaffection showed themselves during the session of the Conven tion, but they all disappeared as soon as the whole ticket was examined and the questions before the people were thoughtfully consid ip1. Tin re are a thousand reasons why in w hob-ticket should lie elected, lnit not a single cue why a Republican should throw away his vote or su-rificc his principles by voting for Democrat-. We aie pleased to see that e'lir Republican cotenijioraries cor dially endore the whole ticket. The Evening Hullclin says,: "It is generally conceded on ail hands that the Republican County Convention last Sat urday, placid in the field one of the strong est tickets ever nominated in Leavenworth ( utility. I ii addition to a ticket composed of lie progressive gentlemen, men of sterling worth in the e-ounty, the nominating con vention was a harmonious one throughout. f course every (political Convention is cer tain to leave disapiointed candidates, and in some instances the pangs of defeat can only lie ooihed by bolts. The Convention, Satur day, furnished a rarecxample of fairness and moderation in all its workings, and the can didates who were rejected are going to work with a cheerful vigor to increase the Repub lies'ii majorities. We hear nothing of bolts and iudccndcnt candidates and few deser tions to the Democracy. If there are any of the latter, they have iittle or no influence, and am carry with them nothing but their on n votes and t readier)-. The Republican ticket for the present campaign is a remark ably strong one. While none but good men are placed upon it, the oilions are distri buted to localities, in a fair manner, and the feelings of nationality and color arc at the sime time pnperly regarded.. It is a com pliment to the sense and unity of the Repub licans of lxavcnonh County to place such a ticket in the field and the compliment will I- resolved into a triumph for the principles of the party on the Srli of November." The Kre'ning Otll is not less emphatic: "The Convention acted on Saturday, and now comes the duty of the jieople. It that Is--tell done, and all will be well for the county and State. No ticket was ever nude"; or nominated, when and where parties were or are strong, which pleased every bwly. Ours is no exception. Still, as a w hole, it is a good one, and should be vigor ously pushed and earnestly supported. ""( me peculiarity of the Convention was that it nominated a colored man. This is simply carrying out the principle affirmed bv the Republican p'artv. Some object. Re- verso the ca.se. and suppose some lHirtion of the white race, who had been down-trodden, were siiddenlv set free. Would not all of us i beer the ambition and applaud the courage w hich should stimulate them to graspat po litical distinction and seek social position? " Let Republicans go to work, and work in earnest. With strong men like Echcl lvrrv, with able and honest men like Gris wold to lead, let none of as falter. On to the work then, Republicans,, and let ours be the triumph!" THE DEMOCRATIC TICKET. The Democrats met in Convention yester day and nominated a County ticket which we suppose will be considered a strong one. A few names on it are undoubtedly popular, although not more so than many of the Re publican candidates. But we have no hesi tation in saying that our opponents have acted more wisely than usual. When they last met in Convention they did not dare to make any nominations whatever. "The great and glorious" Democracy consented to self-dissolution, and dismemberment. .Such acts arc fatal admissions of weakness. The election which then followed was carried against the Republican nominees because Democratic registers and judges dkfran diised the colored voters in two Wards. Rut the Democracy came ont in its own name yesterday and made up a ticket with only one mame on it from our party. We congratulate them on their courage. Col ored men are now voters in every Ward and in every Township; they will vote; and there arc a great many of them. The white popu lation oCthc County and City has greatly in creased since November 1668, and even then we had three hundred majority for Grant. No fact is better known than this, that most of the new settlers in Kansas are Republicans. The vote will be larger than ever before, for there seems to be no apathy, and the Republican majority cannot be lew than seven hundred we should not be surprised to see it exceed a thousand. There need be bo fear of the Democrats, and the Democrats themselves appreciate this fact as thoroughly as we do. Our candidates for the Legislature and the Senate must be supported at all hazards. The Democrats in some instances are refus ing to make any nominations whatever. But there is only one course for Republicans to pursue. Stand by the ticket, and by every candidate on the ticket. To trade or to dicker is only to help the enemy. The only J way to carry out Republican principles is by voting for Republican candidates. MWE AS MABVET. The Weekly Tikes issued to-day is the last number of that edition of our paper which will be seen by our readers before the election, and we wish to say a last word to them in regard to Harvey, Lowe, and the whole Stale ticket. The best informed persons believe that the whole vote of the State next Tuesday will not be less than seventy thousand. The Republican vote, on that supposition, will reach at least 45,000, while it is possible that the Democratic vote will number 25,000. That would give us a Republican majority of 20,000. The labor of every Republican must be to increase this majority. In some Counties there will be a good deal of split ting on local tickets, but the State and Con gressional tickets must not be permitted to suffer. Our nominations on these tickets are of the best kind, and every vote must be secured. We appeal to every Republican to make this his special duty on election day. Let the triumph be a grand and glorious one, and the majority as large as that of Massachusetts or Iowa. HESTAIttBIAL. We fierceive that Sidney Clarke has done as we predicted in the Franklin and An derson Senatorial District, by bringing out a bolting candidate for the purpose of de feating Judge Scars. We sincerely hope that it will not succeed. Aside from being a grievous wrong toward the party, the State would be a great loser in not having the services in the Legislature of so able and experienced a Seneator as he. It is not a matter affecting merely that District, but the State at large, as well as thesparty to which he belongs. The earnest Repub licans of this County are much interested in his success. . It appears that the Fourteenth Amend ment is to be rigorously enforced in Tennes see. A few days since, Chief Justice Nich olson, Justices Sneed and Nelson, and At torney General Heiskell, were summoned by United States District Attorney Camp to ap pear before the Judges of the United States District Court, at Knoxville, on the second Monday in January next, to show by what warrant they can daim to exercise theduties, power and privileges of Judges of the Su preme Court of the State. The informations recite that the said parties, prior to 1861, held offices of honor and trust under the Constitution of the United States, and in assuming them, took oaths to support the same, and that afterward they eadi engaged in insurrection and rebellion, and gave aid and comfort to the enemv. Hkke Is a Chicago paragraph, from the Time of that dty: " It is a somewhat curi ous fact that, while champagne wine has ad vanced largely in price, there is no diminu tion in the supply. This fact may puzzle political economists, but it will please the champagne drinkers. For their further edifi cation, it may be added that if the European war continues for the next ten years, there will still be no diminution in the supply of champagne. Chicago has facilities for sup plying a French wine that are inexhaustible Not unless the drog-sho give out, need there be any apprehension that there will not be any decrease in this creamy tipple." A mono the many grotesque means of saving the country now resorted to or proposed in France, the formation of a certain new corps of defence in the department of Gers is one of the most remarkable. Its members are all dressed in black, and are all under the vow of strictest silence. All commands are given by signs. At present the crops con sists of fifty men, all picked shots, armed with the Minie rifle. Their banner is a skull. No one knows the name of their leader, who has paid all the expenses of their equip ment. The story comes from Lexington that on the day before Gen. Lee died a large portrait of him, which was hanging in the parlor of his house, fell to the floor, breaking the heavy frame surrounding it. A large pho tograph of him hanging in the photograph gallery, in the town fell about the same time, and broke into pieces.- There was ap parently no disturbing cause or force to pro duce these accidents. Calvin Chamberlain, a venerable citi zen of Maineias original views on the labor question. He recently dug seventy bushels of potatoes, with his own hands, in eight hours, one dav last week. He thinks a man 1 at sixty ought not to work more than eight hours, or dig more than seventy bushels of potatoes in a day. The Batavia (N. Y.) TTmim says between Monday morning and Thursday night of last week, 15,000 barrels of apples were brought into and shipped from that place. The prindpal part of them were shipped to Philadelphia, the balance to Boston and New York, and the price ranges from SI ,30 to $1,50 per barrel. The New York World says the election law of Congress ought to be called "a law to diminish Democratic majorities." If suc cessfully enforced in New York City it will doubtless diminish Democratic majorities very perceptibly. Honest men of all parties want to see this law rigidly executed. Only the rogues will suffer. Hon. W. C. Webb has been nominated for the Legislature from the Fifty-third District, Bourbon County. He represented Fort Scott in the last House, and was a very efficient member. Capt. S. A. Williams, a well-known old dtizen, is the Democratic candidate. Hox. J. W. Shaffer, Governor.of Utah, whose death is reported by telegraph, was at Fort Leavenworth in '61 on the staff of Gen. Hunter. He afterwards served in New Orleans oa the staff of Gen. Butler. He was an able politician and an original sup porter of Mr. Lincoln, in Illinois. Of the members of Gen. Grant's staff, at the time the latter was stationed at Cairo, HI., in 1862, two only are now living Gen. Hillyer and Major W. W. Leland, of Sara toga, Those who have since died were Gen's McPherson, Rawlins, Bowers, Lago and GrahanL The Mobile (Ala.) Seguter says that in August, September and October to the 22d cf the following years, the deaths by yellow fever were: 1839, 620; 1843, 274; 1847, 72! 1853, 868; 1854, 84; 1855, 35; 1858, 241; 1867, 65; 1870, (to October 22), 140. The Methodise Episcopal Church will have but two great national camp meetings next year. The irat is to commence at Round Lake, aboat ten miles from Saratoga, New York, on the fourth day of July, and the other on the second day of August, at Urbana, Ohio.

POMEEOYASA NOVELIST, lib Career as a Pioneer. Hen. Janus Blood Vindicates the Trata of History and the Falsehood of Pomeroy. Lawrence, Kas., Oct. 25, 1870. Tolke Ulihr i' Ike LemvHirmlh Timet: As a communication, dated Lawrence, Kansas, Oct. 18, 1870, and published in your paper of the 21st insL, criticizing atf article of Senator S. C. Pomeroy 's, published in the New York Iddgtt of Oct. 22, 1870, contains a number of erroneous statements, I condude that the author of the communica tion referred to above was not one of the first settlers of Kansas, and that he hxs been mis informed in regard to some of the incidents of the early settlement of Lawrence. I therefore desire to make a few state ments through your paier of facts that came within my personal knowledge. In July 1855, 1 came to Kansas. At St. Louis, on my wav here, I learned that C. Robinson and C. II. Branscomb had passed through there a day or two before on their war to Kansas City. On my arrival at Kan sas City I learned that Gov. Robinson had returned to the cast without going into the Territorv, and that 5Ir. Branscomb had gone to Ft. Riley, on horse back. I went up the Missouri Kiver as ur as rt. Leaven- wort, and returned to -Kansas City where I met Mr. Branscomb, on his return from rt. Riley. Mr. Branscomb and myself then went to- Kher, np the Missouri River as faras Ft. ivenworth, with the view of selecting a point on the Missouri Kiver for the Iandimr of the expected immigration from the free States. A few days after our return to Kansas City, the first party of free State settlers, number ing about thirty men (no women), landed there. In this party I think were S. F. Tappan, D. R- Anthony, Mr. Mallory, Dr. S. C. Harrington, Hugh Cameron and Dr. John Doy. we held a consultation with regard to the point to be selected for the aVst settlement, and I remember that Mr. Branscomb and myself with Mr. Anthony and one or two others, rode over to consult with Mr. A. Guthrie about some land that he controlled in the Wyandotte Reservation, on the MhaoBri River, where the town of Quindaro was afterwards laid out. But as we were not willing to invent moner, or ad vise others to in vest money in building up a town on land to. which we had no assurance of being able to obtain legal title, and as I had received letters from the Commissioner of Indian Anwirs and the Commissioner of the General Land Osace at Washington, stat ing that the Gofaaaauit would not allow settlements to be made upon the Delaware land. We therefore abandoned the idea of selecting a point for a landing on the the Missouri River in the Territory, (as the Wyandotte and Delaware lands 'extended along the Missouri River from the mouth of the Kansas River to Fsrt Leavenworth,) and condoded to go op the Kansas River across the Shawnee reservation, and lay out a town where the city of Lawrence now is. We came with the parry and pitched the tents on the hill, and in the exact spot where the State University building m now being erected. We founds at that time four or five settlers near the bank of the river, upon the ground selected for the town. A Mr. Stearns had built a log cabin where it yet stands on the east aide of Massachusetts street near the bridge. Mr. Bramcomb went at to Mr. Steams and made an agreement !. i: . l: acvi r tr. .Ill j wa bib u vmj him .jww mx iiw ciwa sau . J uuu ...m tf. l D .! and agree to give $1,000, the price that be aked for his claim and improvement. The I !, am. Mgm - w .. .. . ,, MK settlers that we found here were holding what they called farm claims.

C Pmneroy. Gov. Robinson, Mr. l'onieroy, Gains Jen kins myself and perhaps one or two others came up here in advance of the party. Wc arrived here at night and staid with the set tlers in their canvas tents on the hill. One day was spent here in looking at the town site and in consultation. On the second morning Senator Pomeroy, Mr. Jenkins and myself returned to Kansas City, Gov. Rob inson remained here. At this time there were probably not less than one hundred white settlers within the limits of Douglas Coontr. A Settler's Association had been organ ized and a code of laws adopted by the set tlers for their government. I will not attempt to correct all of the errors in the Ledger article of the ''distinguished Sen ator," and had not the article been repub lished in the Senator's home organ (the Atchison Champion and JVm) I do not think I should have noticed it at all. Indeed. I should have concluded that the object of the "distinguished Senator," in writing the arti cle lor the lMgr, was to distinguish him self as a writer of fiction. But I should like to correct one or two more statements in the Ledger article. The "distinguished Senator" represents that he was at one time a prisoner in the hands of the Border Ruffians upon the banks of the Wakarusa, and, after nine days captivity, was sentenced to be hanged; that afterwards he was set free, Gen. Atchison telling him that they the Border Ruffian leaders could not take the responsibility before the country, and in view of the Presidential election then approaching, of hanging (ten. l'omeroy, "as 1 was called, 1 being .President oi ine committee oi vigilance ana com mander of the Free State forces." Now, the ft .a -. - w" distinguished Senator never was commander of the Free State forces, and never was a res ident of Lawrence. On bis return from here, in September, 1851, be opened an office in Kansas City, where he resided until 1857, occasionally visiting Ijwrence and other places in the Territory. In the fall of 1855. Sumuel Jones, a resident of Wcstport, who claimed to be Sheriff of Douglas County, called out a large posse to aid him in making arrests, ami campeo wnn nis pne, ior a lew days, upon the banks of the Wakarusa, a short distance below Lawrence. About this time, Mr. S. C. Pomeroy came up here from Kansas City, and the next day, on his way back to Kansas City, he was arrested and taken into camp, where he was kept over night, I think. On his release the next day he made haste to go East. As this was in 1855 and the Presi dential election did not take place until the fall of 1856, Gen. Atchison (if he had been there,) would hardly have been terrified at the effect the hanging of "Gen. Pomeroy" would have upon the Presidential elections. There was no military organization of the Free State forces until after Jones called out his potte. At that time the Free State men met here and organized, making Governor Robinson Commander-in-Chief, Gen. J. IL Lane, second, and I think Gen. George W. Dcitzler, third in command. A committee of safety was also elected with Col. Robin son, Chairman, and I think Dcitzler, Secre tary. As Senator Pomeroy was not here and not a resident of the Territory of course he was not thought of for either position. But I have taken more notice than I intended of the "Distinguished Senator" on account of his personal exploits, 1 will, therefore, dis miss for the present, the "Distinguished Senator's" Ledger article with the remark that said article Is v-Udfidion, from beginning to the end. I would like, however, to refer to one or two more of the representations in your correspondent's letter of the 18th inst. His representation of the delivery of the cannon by Senator Pomeroy to 'Jones, I believe to be substantially correct, although I was not present. The time of this occur rence was the 21st of May, 1S56. A short time before this Mr. Donaldson, United States Marshal, for Kansas, Issued a procla mation calling for a poae to aid him in making arrests and executing the orders of the United States Court, for the Territory of Kansas. His proclamation was responded to by a large number of men from Missouri and otherslave States. They were organized at Lecomrtton, then the Capital of the Territory, and marched uihii Lawrence under the command of Marshal Donaldson and Sheriff Jones, accompanied by David R. Atchison, then Vice President of the United States. Their force was called the Territorial Militia, but I think your cor respondent is mistaken about its being com posed in jiart of United States troops. At this time Mr. Pomeroy came up from Kan sas City, and as (Jo v. Robinson, Geo. Lane, and other member of the committee were away, a few of the citizens of Lawrence formed a new committee, and Gen. I'mneny, who happened to be present, was made chairman of the committee. I believe the only act that he ever performed in that ca- Jiadty was the delivery of the howitzer to Tones, as your correspondent represents, as he left here immediately, and I do not think that he was seen in Lawrence, or in Kansas, again that year. Your corrcsjxjudent is also mistaken about Jones' believing Mr. Pom eroy 's representations that he as a minister, . . i for Jones lived at Wcstport, near .Kansas Citv, where Mr. Pomerov had been livingtff-v reart ctm-ternation among llwi-en-, - ' .. - j i . . i ... r.

Pomeroy's story, but released him. as he did other prisoners who were taken into his camp, as he and the border ruffian leaders, although ac quainted with Mr. Pomeroy, had not dis covered his Kvmlerid talent, and were not aware of his mail iiiipoitaiue. I desire to correct one more error that i vour corrcsiKimlent has fallen into, and that Is, "that the haters of Gen. Lane" helped to elect Mr. Pouieroy to the Senate. It will i i i uJ.u i- ..e !.-. who took- anv intent in that 'election, that it I was a combination ot the tunporters (not " haters") of Gen.

Mr. Editor, I have made the above hastily written statements, " for the truth of his tory," and hope you will (if you sec fit to publish this) allow me to invite a response from anv old settler of Kansas, that Ulo truth of history may be vindicated.

The child had been ailing for some days and the parents were advised to give it some Quinine, but a mistake was made in admin istering the medicine and a large do: of Morphine was given instead, which resulted in death. The mistake originated from there being both medicines close together, and it was not discovered until too late the child I was dead. The feelings of the parents niton discovering the consequences of their hate in giving the medicine before finding out to a certainty its nature, cannot be described; they were almost frantic, and arc yet bowed down with grief and remorse.

The Washington and New York express, which leaves West Philadelphia for New York at 15:35 a. m., always stops at Mantiu Junction to change engines. The locomo tive in readiness at this point brings the train on to New Brunswick, where it is replaced by a third engine, which takes the train to Jersey City. At 2 o'clock yesterday morn ing engine No. 81 was ready at 5Iantui Junc tion for the express. This locomotive is said to be the oldest usscngcr engine on the road, and, though somewhat worn with age, excels many of its juniors iii'both power and speech While waiting for the express, the engineer and the firemen, having half an hour to spare, left their engine standing on the main track and went to breakfast. At this dark and early hour the only persons at the Junction were employees of the company. The veteran Iocomotie was standing alone. Its bright head-light threw a gleam up the track revealing distinctly far into the darkness beyond the continuous line of steel over which its ponderous wheels had so often rolled. From its a.li-i.in dronted the heated cinders, and from the oily elbows of its steel mints came the fizzing solum ui iuijrrsiMU.-i mi-uiu. &! w.is ijiiii-i, and the men, whose duty it was to handle the reins of this iron monster, supped on un suspidous of such a contingency occurring as its breaking loose. The homely fea.st di .ed of, tlicy lit their piie?, but they had not enjoyed more than half a doren whiffs when they were startled from their reverie. To their astonishment, their engine !cgan moving, and, before either of them could recover their self-possession, it Jiad shot out of sight, and was making the imt remark able time on record. In a few more moments the express came up. Without a second's dday, its engine was sent in pur.-uit of the ninawa v locomotive.
