' A committee appointed to draft resolutions expressing the sense of the meeting, reported tlie following, which were after discussion enthusiastically adopted. Ha-.'. -J That, we as a people, are in fa vor of the tcjment in fall of all our just debts, and would no more repudiate as af County tlian as individuals, any debts whiof I -e uave cuiiiroueu or agieeu ui ny, or mm which we have value received, but we will not jiermit interested parties, the holders of out pretended bonds, to frighten us by the scare-crow cry of repudiation into paying bond, that, -as a people, we have never promised to joy, and which were obtained bv fraud and contrary to law, and for which we have not received any consideration. lUfiinL, That a debt so contracted is no obligation in lav or comdenee, and, that there can be no innocent holders of such Iwnds. Jiaotrtd, That, we will not, unless com jelled by the judgment of tlie courts of last resort, ray any of the taxes levied by our County Commissioners, to meet the interest or principal of bond issued to any of the railroads ol tins Uountv. Jlaolnd, That, we hail with pleasure the stand taken by our taster Townships of Fairmountand Sherman, and heartily join with them in this contest, and we hereby unite with them in recommending to all our sister Township to join us in one common defence of our rights. The following additional resolutions were unanimously adopted : JUvJed, That, we include in our contest the bonds known as the Bridge bonds. Jiaotnd, That for the greater efficiency in this matter we do do now organize our selves into the Tax Payers Union Xo. 3. and that Messrs. James Orr, Wm.

A small gang of robbers ap pears to hate infested that portion of the county, known as Kickapoo township, for several years. Country jieople, whenever caught in town till after nightfall, have re garded the road between the city and aalt Creek hridce. in the valley, with a great deal of solicitude with reference to their personal safety. Since befora the end of the war, at least seven persons nave tieen suincueu to the tender mercies of the highwaymen in half aa raanv years. Among them we may .i - elf- ti xr 1...l.l mention me case ui jii. wuu , . aimuuu.i, two or three years ago, while he was a mem ber of the County Board of Commissioners. Two other jiersons have been treated like wise within the three or four weeks past, and the peculiarity of the thing is, tlie vic tims have, in nearly all cases, been citizens ol mat ctisincx, wuicn sevms to ucvciop cue fact that the robbers were their neighbors. Wc are informed tliat some very satisfactory "clues" havj been obtained lately which may at no late day unearth these guilty scounureis. We had about seven-eighths of an inch of snow on the ground yesterday morning, but it was nearly all gone before night. Snow never did do well h re. There Is something in the soil or climate that is unfavorable. We will give $100 for a prize essjy, setting forth in an intelligent manner, the reason why snow ilon t grow well in Kansas, and also conta - a Est of the six best arieties. with the i r Jt which they can be deliv ered at ti new depot, runnier of cu'Uvation whcthc : i-s better to put it in with a drill or sow linwucast. r " f, Grain Depot Where is it? i jv is fast learning the. location, cor- nek c n.d Delaware etrtsits.

Whenever a team takes a notion to "air" itself a little in our neighboring city of Lawrence, it gene rally manages the affair with entire success, so far as clearing out the city is concerned. La-4 spring we saw one team, upon a certain occasion, conduct matters in such a manner as to induce three others to join it in a grand stampede. Xo further description of the result is necessary tlian to remark that when tlie dust cleared up the city presented the appearance of a ''GeUyshurg'' battle field. Wagons and flour "and coBee and store goods lay scattered everywhere. Items are not very scarce here but we will turn aside long enough to note another runaway which took place there yesterday, and which was sufficiently exciting to make quite a local forojr reighboring reporters. A team of grevs, calicd the "matches to the city team," got started, and, after making the tour of tlie entire city two or three limes, brotu-ht un finally in a heap at the bottom of a ditch, pear the gasworks.

To OnhA irvflht Tima : If anything could illustrate the need of re oortsideration in our use of such words as su rjerrotural, supersensuous and others of simi lw import, and thereby, furnish occasion for my remarks to that end in yourissue of the 8th, it is surely found in your loper of to-day in a communication over the signa ture "Anniecad," a condensed article from the "London Spiritual" Magazine, from the pert of Mr. K. H. Brown. These self styled Spiritualistic papers are springing op very thickly in thetwo Ameri cas, Europe and Asia, and contain many ve ry clever articles: This one of Sir Brown's being a good specimen of the class they are however, all committed alike by these inter esting facts; all assuming to have discovered tlie "Immortal Soul," again and again bold ly a?rting such discovery to be scientific Who will not by a moment's reflection catch in soch statements the tone of emphatic ab snrdity?

One small book in this set is at hand, by Dr. Fahnestock, of Philadelphia, entitled Artificial somnam bulism," which while it does not debate the question of deceased reappearance, offers very explicit in-truction regarding these oc cult forces of the brain mind, jts perusal bet ter fitting all who are examining sensitive mediums.

On tlie Cth day ol December, 1SC9, 1 mas one of the excursion party tliat went to Fort Scott to celebrate the completion of the first railroad to this city. It so happened that in iust one year I found myself travelling over the same road again, and that the sixth of December is al the day on wiucli tne rail road is completed from Sedalia to Fort Scott. One year lias made vat changes in this thriving and wide-awake town. Fort Scott must have doubled in size during the twelve month, and now have a population exceed ins six thousand. It thus ranks in size with Lawrence, Topeka and Atchison, all being nearly equal in population, and second only Leavenworth. Xo city in the State is growing taster, and no otlier is better tiuilL The business houses are solid and substantial, while the residences are nearly all ueat, and tlie number of elegant and expensive houses surprises even those most familiar with the rapiu growui oi our state. The finest building now in process of erec tion here is tlie Public Schoolhoure. The cost of the house and grounds will be about $60,000. The building is large, and strong ly made, and is much finer in apiearance thsn our Morris Schoolhouse. Everything good may be hoped for a town which is so munificient in matters of education. Four churches are now going up here. Tlie largest and finest is built by the Catho lics; it is of brick, like the schoolhouse, and stands near tha stone church now in use. The Congregarlonalists are building a church near the school building; the BabUsts an done other denomination are also erecting church edifices which I did not sec Dwelling houses art: going up in all directions, and new streets are opened for residences and business blocks. Tlie most activity is at present to be seen on the new streets leading to the two railway stations, although both streets, as it appears to me, will be endan gered when the Marmaton sees fit to swell its . flood. The ground on which Fort Scott stands could not be more favorable for easily building a city. There is no heavy grading to be done anywhere, and yet the wind ine river and tlie centle sloping of the surrounding hills make the scene rather picturesque tnan tame, vmtiin aicwycars the fine residences will adorn the undula ting fields on the South and West, one or two miles from the present Heart oi the city. When Fort Scott published her railroad map. it was received &ith incredulous sneers by the outside world. Now, nearly half of her predictions have been realized. mce Kobe S. Stevens made the Sedalia road a part of the M. K. A T., he has completed it to Fort Scott and has graded and bridged it to Parsons, on the Xeosho. Parsons is southwest of this city, not far from Osage Mission, through which the road passes. Mr. Scullin.'pf Leavenworth, is laying the track, and the cars will be running to 1'ar sons within four weeks. Mr. Scullin has averaced more than a mile of track a day during the last three hundred and sixty-five days; lie has built ten miles in uve days, ana two miles in half a day. He is a driver and a worker worthy of Stevens. Mr. Waite, formerly our City Engineer, is al-o at work on this road and is dually energetic tire- leas and successful, f he M. K. & T. road is graded nearly to Fort Gibson, in the Indian . Territory, and will be com pleted to the Arkansas early the spring. Soldiers who remember their weary inarches from Fort Leavenworth ar.d Fort Scott will hardly be able to credit this statement, but they will oon he able to go from your city to Fort Gibson in less than a day and night. Think of Quantrell, Baxter Springs, Mcintosh, Ilindinan, Cabell, Stand Waitie, and the names which used to be so familiar to us. and you will then have some conception of the progress made since the close of the war. Our friends in Parker, Montgomery Coun ty, aay the road from Fort Scott and 'Parsons win He uccnaecA to inai noansmng town, but of this I have no facts on which to base a statement. The next western road of Fort Scott will be built to Humboldt, and thence on to Eureka, Eldorado and Wichita, on the Arkansas, and this seems to me to be the road more important than all others to Fort Scott. It will open trade with a new line of rich counties and give them their only direct cocnection with St. Louis. This road will be as valuable to Fort Scott as the Denver road is to St. Joseph, the Central tos Atchi son, or the Kansas Pacific to Leavenworth. and the traffic from this line alone will be sufficient to sustain a city much larger than Fort Scott. From the East, tlie next road to this place will be the one known as the Laclede road, from St. Louis, through Stockton and Lebanon, and now completed within forty miles, I believe, of Fort Scott. The St. Louis Air Line takes a course between the Laclede and Sedalia roads, due northeast. to the Missouri Metropolis. The counties through which it wiU pass,are, most of them, deprived of railway facilities and must have this road or none. They are rich and have subjcrihed liberally for this great work. The Atr Lane is batted try tne rennsyivania OpttaL Bf be vnmpleiien vt the Sedalia road, Fort Scott is already, as Sam. Manlove truthfully and tartly states it, nearer St. Louis than any other Kansas town except W'yandotte, and it is as near as Wyandotte You can take a sleeping car at Fort Scott and go through in it to St. Louis in a night. This Sedalia road as also creepimj on to Chicago. CapC E. A. Smith, the engineer, in forms me that it will soon cross the Missouri at Boonville, and go on to the Mississippi, striking it at Louisiana. And then there will be a through car to Chicago. I will mention only one other railroad en terprise it is tie rort bcoU and Memphis road. The company has been formed here this week and the preliminary steps taken. Fort Scott knows no soch word as fail, and in this last mentioned great enterprise she has the cooperation of the railway king, James r. Joy. ext to railroads n not uehire inem in im mrtanre is the coal of Fort Scott. It is used in vour city, in Atchison, in Lawrence, and is known and bought in cities 150 miles from bere It can here be bought for ten cents a bushel; it is the poor mans best friend, and is the principal reliance of the capitalists who are beginning to make of Fort Scott a mimiffuinriruT centre. You can hardly dig a cellar without finding h, and the farmers heVtcome to town with an empty wagon. Tne veia is tour feet thick, and it costs little more labor to mine it than it does to dig potatoes. With such an ally at hand you could not keep manufacturers out of Fort Scott if you armed men with clubs and paid them to stand on every railroad and avenue to knock down 'all new-cottiers. The burning of the large Woollen Mill owned by George A Crawford, was felt at first to be an irreparable loss, but it has served to call the attention of citiaens and visitors to the fact that Fort Scott is destined to be another Pittsburgh. Companies have been formed to engage in various branches of manufacturing, and a whole brood of lively birds will rise irom tne asnes ol that PbcEnix. The Merchant Mills, owned by D. F. Shetard. are doing a heavy business and are so thronged with teams that you think you are approaching a market house when you drive op to them. Mr. anepard has been here only two years, has one of the most convenient mills we ever saw, supplied with the most modern machinery, and he must be making a fortune. His flour it already famous, and whatever mills can do anywhere Shepardu doing; here. AndShep ard talks as well as he grinds. Among the good thinSt we hare heard him aay was this. In alluding to the fact that the old settlers put on some aim, and that a man is no Miter because he has lived in Kansas fourteen years, Shepard says he thinks a man is just as puouc-spinuHi wuu gives ten thousand dollars an acre for land as the one who bought it for ten shillings. Well, I suppose we old settlers of the State do some times disgust the euiiaU-deserving new-comers. I tried to live in Wisconsin once. When I met a man be would say: "How long have you Iswn here?" "Three months.'' "Only three months! Why, 1 have been here fifteen years.' ' The answer was so uni versal thit 1 left Wisconsin, determined to come to a State where nobody should fling that sneer into my teeth. I have now near ly served out my term of fifteen years, but hope to offend nobody else by blowing about it. Eastern men would say that frontier life rather made men rougher and meaner than higher and more refined. In point of fact, neither place of birth nor place of resi dence lias anything whatever to do with manhood. This is one of the self-evident truths so often treated as if they were false hoods. And, in joint of policy, nothing can he more unwise than to invite immigrants to come to Kansas and then to snub them after they get here. This little episode is not jsut in as a lecture on tlie old residents of tort Scott men in whom that city has been very fortunate, and of whom she lias substantial reasons for feeling proud but because I have noticed in many of our newspapers of late a tendency to slight and ignore new set tlers to speak of their opinions as of no ac count and to allude to their claims, when proposed as candidates for office, as alto gether contemptible When old Pomeroy would not invite to his Lawrence supper any body but fourteen-year-old pioneers, the new comers concluded that they could have a lit tle fun of their own, and so they burned Pomeroy in effigy on the street. The new settlers are in a vast majority and are recruit ing their ranks at the rate of a thousand a day. There is no virtue in leaving home at any time, but it is as virtuous in 1870 as it was in 1856. Fort Scott lias three newspapers the Daily Monitor, and Daily TcUgram, and the Weekly Dcmoeral. ut the Monitor, ueo. A, Crawford and P. 11. Tiernan are the propri etors; Samuel A Manlove is the political and E. F. Ware the city editor. The Tekyrunt is an evening paper, and is published and edited by Maj. Wm. Caffrey. Both papers are bright and lively, but their personalities are tiresome to outsiders, however, they may he received here. The Democrat is a large Weekly and is published by the Goode Brothers. You may soon learn that I think Fort Scott as good a point for newspapers as for other classes of business. Of Hotels the leading ones are the Wilder House, kept by Palmer and Darr, and the Gulf Hou-e, pre tHcd over by Josept Cuenin, so well and favorably known to you. At the Wilder House 1 found Mr. Clarke in the office, Mr. Murphy, formerly of the Planters', as Steward, and my old friend Maj. Charles Dinion. The bouse was built by Maj. Dimon and his brother George e a true man and generous friend who is now no more. Tlie history of this house has been the history of Fort Soott during the last ten years, and the rush of business seems greater now tlian ever before. Mr. Cuenin's Gulf Hou-e is just one year old, and stands near theGulf depot It is large, neat, well kept, and in every resiiect as good a house as there is in the State There are several smaller hotels, and all seem to be well pat ronized. I had intended to speak of many other matters and men, but must stop, hard ly thanking the numerous old friends met here for their constant kindness and gener nsitr. Fort Smtt is the home of warm and genial hospitality, and it is not surprising tliat everybody lixca tne town. D. W. W. WASHINGTON.

Mr. McCreerey asked leave to introduce a resolution proposing an investigation with a view to the restoration ol the Arlington es tate to the widow of Gen. Robert b.

Mr. Edmunds hoped leave would not be granteu me proiosiiion toaig tipinc oonen of onr dead soldiers in order that certain property might be given back to rebel own ers. It mas, in his mind, pcifeciry mon strous. McCreery then occupied twenty minutes upon the subject. Mr. Edmunds, in reply to Mr. McCreery, said that instead of being wedded to the in stitutions and destinies of Virginia. Gen. Lee was the ward of tlie nation: that nation had fed, clothed and educated him; that be lived at the capitol, and when tliat Capitol called upon him to defend the flag under which he had been born, protected and hon ored, he deliberately turned his back and planted his cannon in sight of the capitol he Lad sworn to defend. But he (Edmunds) would not dignifv the proposition by dis cussing iL Gen. Lee was now dead, and the only regret he thought that right minded men would have, was that Gen. Lee had not died either in his outh or in pathiotic man hood, or even that he had not died earlier tlian be did by the hand of law. which pen alty wound have atoned in some measure for his crimes. Mr. Trumbull, while disclaiming any sympathy with the apparent object of the resolution, which was to surrender and mutu- latethe last resting place of thousands of linicm dead, argued that it would be, if not unprecedented, at least unparliamentary to deny a member a simple request for leave to introduce any legislation not in itself in suiting to the Senate. Mr. Carpenter enquired whether Mr. Trumbull could state a proposition more nagrantly insulting to the senate tnan to re move the slaughtered dead of the Union army for the purpose of returning the farm to rebel possession. Mr. Trumbull replied tint while the reso lution was without doubt repungent to the sense of the nation it was not in a personal sense insulting to the senate. Mr. Morton protested against the conside ration of the resolution. He had heard what he never expected to hear an eulogy upon the character of General Lee in the Senate of the United States. And that, too, insight of the eravos of the victims of the rebellion. This man Lee was, of all others in the rebellion, a sinner. He had sinned against light and knowledge, his Revolution ary ancestry, his oath of fidelity as an officer of the United States, his finished education and high abilities, all forbade him thus to sin, and the enormity ot the crime could not be couceded by decorating his grave with flowers oj rhetoric in words. It was now proposed that the senate should gravely consider a proposition to degrade the memo ries of the patriotic dead at Arlington by removing their bones to less hallowed ground, in tender consideration of the rights of the widow of the arch rebel of the nvwt wicked rebellion in history. Mr. Scott said, the patience with which the Senate had to-day listened to the eulogy upon the chief conspirator who attempted to tear down the Government, was but another illustration of that unparalleled magnanim ity and mercy which had characterized the treatment by the irovemment or those en gaged in rebellion. Mr. Sumner desired that Parliamentary law be administered niion the present occa sion with the utmost rigor, with a view to me maw summary disposition oi me resolu tion. He regarded the resolution as indica tive of the sentiments of tlie political associ ates of the Senator from Kentucky, and as per figuring policy, they would establish, should they obtain power, a policy which was to take hold of the rebellion by the hand and to install it in high place of power. He said he was present when Secretary Stanton gave an order for the interment of the dead bodies of union soldiers at Arling ton, ana that tne secretary started at the time His purpose in selectiiur this place was to forever prohibit th reinstatement of toe Le family there, and that of the dead enraradea the right to etwourrter the ghosts of wear victims cpiiapn aoove tne grave or Shakespeare, which has for two centore and a half griarded the remains of Eng land' Ritaraust pott. JJewottU write above the grave every of every one of our patriot dead, '-Good friend, for Jesus sake forbear to dig up the dust enclosed here; blessed be the man that shows these stones and cursed be he that moves my bones. After a slight applause in the galleries, Mr. McCreery replied that he had intro duced the resolution 'without consultation with bis colleaugues and for every word and for his awn expressed sentiment lie was res ponsible to hi constituents and bit God. At the instance of his colleagues, he asked leave to withdraw the resolution.
