JUNCTION, SATURDAY, NOV. 1, 1862. Union County Nominations. Tor BepitatiYe, G. F. GORDON. ' - Tor Probate Jndg, WILLIAM M. SNOW. Tor District Olerk, PANIEL MITCHELL. For Sheriff EDWARD COBB. Tor School Superintendent, OBADIAH DAVISON. People of Davis County ! We present for your suffrages the most unexceptionable set of men the county affords. MITCHELL, SNOW, COBB and DAVlSON, are men of pure upright charac ters, with the necpssary qualifications, and pos sess a deep interest in "all that pertains to your "Welfare. THE GREAT SPEECH OF MARC PARROTT. We have carefully perused the Topeka epeech cf Mr. Farrott, and have been very much dis appointed. If it is a groat ppeecb, it is fallen greatness, for it is deficient in all the elements of true greatness. It is deficient in truth, in Btatemanship, in lofty conception, in deep phi losophy, thought, or even in useful suggestions. It is the ovei flowing of a bitter spirit, the rehash of political Elander, the dregs of per sonal animosity, the undoubted product of a whirling brain, made dizzy by disappointment, licentiousness, and deep personal hatred. The propositions he announces are as false ai the tone of the speech is sour. He boldly tells the people of Kansas that their delegates did not come fresh from the people, and de - ciarea that they -were base men. " that they Jjrere influenced by fraud, corruption, and bribery.3' and unblushingly tells the people ' that their liberties nre in danger,'' because they sent seventy-five of their best men to the Topeka Convention, and they did not nomi nate such men as he thinks should bo nomina ted. Because, for the first time in his life, he was not at the "impostnte Convention," and General Lane -was, thereforo all who partici' patcd in its doing vrere thieves nnd robbers. Because tho people happened to elect as delegates some five or eii government officers, he denounces the Beventy delegates, who were not Federal officers, as ninnies and knavea, and the dupes of otheis. lie is careful to not tell the people of Kansas that there was not one of those Federal officer- but what was a resident of the State, and possessing a far greater interest in it3 material welfure than the hon crable ex-Member himself. We cannot see that holding a Federal office, w:th a ?mall Balary, is a crime, or that it disqualifies its possessor of tho righta of a citizens, if the people ecc fit to choose them to net as delegates Parrott seizes with ongerness tho most trivial -circumstances, nnd weaves them into a political caich-tiap to secure votes at the coming elec tion. Because General Lane happened at the Convention, his diseased brain whirls with ghosts nnd political specties. Did he keep m tho Convention, for once in hia life, eo tuat ho could swell this delusive howl ? cr was it because tfie masses of Kansas had pronounced against him? Because General Lan?, in calcu lating the chances of electing tho Topeka Ticket, happened to allude to quite a number of rebels, who would probably be arrested by the day of election, Tarrott declares that he means to carry the election by force ! To Eum up the speech, and its object, we jnnst declare it to be the product of a bitter spirit, the open declaration of war on one of the United States Senators of Kansas, which must result in defecting the material interests of the State. Whatever may be the faults of Gen. Lane, he has the confidence of tho Government, has great influence in the Senate, which he has and will use t aid us in developing our vast resources, is it wise to send a man to Congress to curtail that influence ? Lane, Pomeroy, and Conway were the principal means by which Knnsas sceured one branch of the Pacific Bail Boad; has the time come to throw a fire brand into Congress to defeat further benefits ? Can Western Kansas afford 10 nid in carrying on a war between her Senators and Represen tative? If the speech of Mr. Pat rott means any thing, it is war, war to tho end war tl at must ciippJe the influence of ono of the best friends of Western Kansas. Before reading his great speech wo had a little confidence in Mr Parrott, but this has effectually cured us. She most biilliant talents, if directed to such ends as is proposed inthe speech, are far more dangerous than less shining ones. The past action of tho ex'Member of Congress does not promise that he will do vary much for Kansas, -trere he in harmony with our Senators, and now, as his great thought, his grand idea, is 'War on a Seuator, we must throw our vote for areliable friend of this portion of the State, and one who will second every effort of our members of Congress to develop her untold resources. Therefore, vote for -A. CARTER WILDCR. PATRIOTS! Every Secessionist in Davis County will vote for L. B. Perry : not one of them will vote for S. II. Strickler A HE NAILED. We understand that the pro slavery-anti-proclamation candidate for the State Senate, ie circulating a story to the effect that Mr. Striokler is opposed to the building of a rail road up the Kansas Valley. 1 his is a very great He. We know that Mr. Strickler has always bean a warm advocate of that measure, and that he has expended more money to secure that -very thing than any other man in Western Kansas, with perhaps a single execp- "tion. Let no honest voter be deceived by cunning lies, gotten upon the eve of the elec tion to draw off votes on our Legislative ticket. the men on that ticket Strickler and Goraon r are permanently identified, in njmpathy, in property, in interest, and in hopes. There is ntf danger that either of them will take refuge ..with Jeff. Davis before the Legislature adjourns. Can as much bt said of-all otker etpdidatfe? MR. L. B. PERRY. When a man cosies before the people in just the manner that Mr. Perry has, it is natural for those of an inquiring tarn of mind to ask for the platform upon which he stands, the principles which actuate him in entering upon the contest for political honors, and his reasons fcr thus bunging himself before the people. These inquiries we propose to answer as briefly as possible. Mr. Strickler, his opponent, appears up on a platform which has for its main points a firm and cordial support of the Adminis tration, a vigorovs prosecution of tho war to an honorable and successful end, and the promise of an energetic effort for tho ad vancement of our local interests. As he makes no other issue, Mr. Perry must, as a natural consequence, bo in antag onism to one or more of these points, and we take it to be in that of giv ing the Administration an earnest and cheerful support. lie is well known to be a pro-slavery man, deep and earnest in the hatred of Abolitionists and Republicans one and tho same thing in his mind. At the outbreak of the rebellion, a majority of men of this stripe took up arms with the South against the Government, nnd are now doing battle in that unholy cause but in Davis county there has enough remained to make an imposing front, and so far as they have dared they have showed that to the best advantage in opposition to the truly loyal men of the county. Last fall this party put a ticket into the field which, as one of them declared, was "just as near secession as they dared to make it." Now this very same party put forward Mr. Per ry, a man who, after the bombardment of Fort Sumpter, when, if ever, a loyal man would be stirred to acts and words of pat riotism, declared the North was the cause and the only cause of this rebellion, and who has, within the last Gve weeks, repeated almost the same sentiments, at the name time denouncing tho President in bitter terms. Is this the man for the loyal Dem ocrats and .Republicans of the 20th District to send forth as the representative of their interests and their loyalty 1 Shall the party friend of a Cuddy nnd n Herbert, and who has never repudiated their acts, be made the exponent of the views of this District? An office-seeker and a political trickster is despised by all. Whenever a man becomes such he at once merits and receives the odium attach-' ed to the name by his fellow-citizens. We think we have such an one in our midst in the person of A. W. Callen, independent candidate for Sher iff. After coming before and proposing to be a candidate of the Union County Convention, and after having been defeated by that Convention, instead of supporting its nominees, as a man should, who had identified himself with that part', as Mr. Callen has, he denounces their whole proceedings, ind announces himself as an independent candidate. By this one act alone he proves conclusively that lie is willing to ride into office upon the votes of persons disaffected with the Union of different parties. But this is not all. Not satisfied with submitting his chums to the decision of linl citizens, and relying upon his principles as a Republican, as he pretends to be, he takes occasion to bring forth and advocate the claims of a man from the pro slavery wing of the Democratic party for the office of State Senator. O" Wc are pleased to note that Hon. D. T. Mitchell has been nominated by the Union men of the Lecompton representative district for the Legislature. We know Mr. Mitchell to be a bold, unequivocal patriot never faltering when the blow was struck. He was the foremost and boldest of the few leynl men living in Lecomp ton, when the war broke out. Mr. M. has always been a Democrat, and for his devotion to liis country in that hour of peril, was stigmatized an "abolitionisf'nnd "Black Republican," by men we now see active in the Lawrence "Union" movement. On the Fourth of Jul-. '61 , he made a stirring and noble speech, full of devotion to his Government, which wc heard ridiculed for a mouth afterwards by those same men. We have been in that settlement, and "know whereof we affirm" got our political schooling in Le compton. We hope the patriots of that District will reward Mr. Mitchell by a re-election. He has great business qualifications, and raro tal ents. CO Our young friend, Robert S. Miller, has been nominated by the Union party of Dickin son county as their candidate for Representative. "Bob" has long been identified with the inter ests of Dickinson, is fully competent to take charge of those interests," during the wrangling of local issues at the capital next winter. He ha3 good business qualifications, and an ener getic, hard worker, with great integrity of char acter. Hope to 6ee him Ihe "Gentleman from Dickinson." WABAUNSEE COUNTY TICKET. For State Senator, S.

It gave an appearance of dreariness to all things. The few days preceeding it was a rather vigorous fortaste of winter, while the weather since then has been delightful. 0Puilos again appears. Fighting is not his " forte" writing is. No paper in the West has a contributor whose productions are more reada ble than those of Puilos. There having been no paper issued lastweek.it is somewhat out of date, but that will not detract from its interest. m . Hon. W. W. Guthrie, the Topeka oandidate for Attorney General, addressed our citizens on Thursday evening, the 23d ult. He is a clear and elegant speaker, and by his logic and argu mentative style satisfied every one of I113 fitness for the position to which he aspires. D We arc pleased to note the success attend ing the Leavenworth Evening Bulletin. It is rising rapidly in public favor, and is destined ere long to be a powerful lever in controlling the public sentiment of the State. It is a neat and lively paper, nnd gives evideuoe of solidity and back-bone. Grand Umon- Militarv Ball. The people of Western Kansas are again to be the recipients of one of these evidences of a soldier's hospitality and entertainment. All know the depth of a soldier's feelings, and former occasions have demonstrated the pride they take in rendering satisfaction. Captain Stewart's Company will give a Complimentary liall at rort Kuey next Monday evening, theSd inst. The most perfect order will be preserved. A grand time will be enjoyed. flj'One day last week, a party of Indians, said to be Delawares, arrived in town and perambu lated our streets, exhibiting with the livelist truslo imaginable all that was left of nine of their Pawnee brethren. The articles in question were scalps, breast-bones, hands and fe t, and gave mauoitauie evidence ot great surgical skui on the part of our '"red brethren." Anatomical science is a branch not neglected by them, and if they would but confine their practice to their own kin and blood, we would ever pray that they may all and each be adepts, even to the "papooses." It appears they had a fight, about sixty miles west of here, in which nine Pawnees and two Datawares were killed. That's eleven minus ! " The world 's a moviu' !" ELECTION NOTICE.
