'vJ-ipif-S!! " WtS"1- i !) tt'wi;. Junction City, Kansas, SATURDAY, IMARCH C, 18G4. ADJOURNED! t We have Uie inexpressible pleasure of an nouncing the adjournment of the most corrupt Legislature ever assembled on the soil of Kansas The people have got rid of an incubus, the weight of which would in a short time utterly crush out their liberties. And, thank God, by constitutional limitation they hae got rid of their betrayers, and still possess their own voice unstnotliered, which will ring out in tones next fall that will consign to thi depths of oblivion those who have made such a bold step towards enslaving them. This body has established a precedent, which, if by fraud it stands, will Eubvert all popular government, and will make the people the servants of their rulers. Despot ism is the inevitable result of such high-handed nsBumptions of power. Money controlled it and if the power to damn was human, how few there would be who would hesitate to use the words of the poem, addressed to "The Bribed Legislator," as appropriate to those who have outraged the people of Kansas : "Damned yea, doubly damned And in Ilell's hottest, fiercest furnace crammed." CAN IT BE PREVENTED 1 The Leavenworth organ of the man who deals in ' whisky by the barrel, half barrel, keg and bottle," asks how the bogus Senator, Carney, can be prevented from taking his seat if a majority of the next State Senate shall r- fuse to go into a Joint Convention for a legal election of a succes sor of General Lane ? Sure enough, how caB the people of Kansas prevent the consummation of this fraud upon their rights? The organ (eenis to think the question a poser. It knows the whisky dealer has "the money," and as money has, thus far, been omnipotent in the purchase of legislative votes, it thinks it will prove eqmlty potent in the future. "We differ with it. We heard o question very like this propounded and answered on a similar subject. It was in the winter of 1857-58, when old John Calhoun and his man McLean were snugly ensconced in the St. George Hotel at "Weston, in the State of Missouri, manufacturing returns of the election which had been held in Kansas for otHcrs under the Lecompton Constitution. It was known unofficially that the Free State can didates had been elected by several thousand majority, and that if Congress should ratify the Lecompton Constitution, the Representative in Congress, the Governor, both branches of the Legislature, and all the judicial officers of the new State, would be anti-slavery. This was a contingency not foreseen by the then swindlers and conspiratois. To avert this calamity to the pro slavery cause, Calhoun removed his quarters from Lccooipton to Weston, and with the aid of McLean, Jo. Carr, Frank Marshall, Jack Hen derson aud other, commenced the manufacture of " returns " from Kicapoo, Delaware Crossings, Oxford, Ac, as a pretext for announcing the success of the pro slavery candidates. It was whilst thej were so engaged that the question to which we have referred was asked. If Calhoun, who is authorized by the Lecompton Constitu tion to receive and canvass the vote, and declare the result, shall declare the pro slavery candi dates elected, how are jou going to prevent their taking chaige of the Government, and running it uutil 1SG5, in the interests of slavery? The sagacious men who propounded the question flattered themselves that they were asking one difficult of answer. They were mistaken. The nuswer was simple so simple that it is surpris ing that the then swindlers did not themselves see it. It was this : The people of Kansas have by their votes elected Judge Smith Governor, aud a majority of both branches of the Legisla ture aie Ticc State; if, by virtue of fraudulent returns, Frank Marshall, and a majority of pro elavcry men are declared elected to the Legisla ture, and if they shall dare to present themselves at Lecompton for the purpose of assuming the duties of the offices, they will be hanged, every scoundrel of them, hanged by the neck until they are dead. dead. A mass meeting will as semble at Lecompton on the day fixed in the "bogus Constitution, whose single motto will be, No quarters to conspirators against the liber ties of the people or usurpers of their rights, but death and damnation to them, one and all!" Calhoun and his candidates quailed. They dared not proccd. Immersed as Mr. Carney was at that time in the immense whisky com merce of Leavenworth, he may have been un conscious of the patriotic electricity blazing all about him, and unable to appreciate the lesson of that hour. If so, it might profit him to use some of his " money " in employing some one to read to him the history of the State which fie aspire to represent in the United States Sen ate. It is not only full of moving and dramatic interest, but it ought to impress even upon the most stolid the fact that the people of Kansas, from 1S54 to 1SG0 were neither slaves, menials, or cowards. They are pretty much the same people yet. They love their State, democratic principles, freedom, truth, honor, honesty, and fair dealing. They despise sham patriots, fus tian foole, and sycophants. Aud they hate Oh, bowbey hate! all men, great or small, who seek by force, or by fraud, cunning, bribery and corruption, to wrest from then a single one of those rights of personal liberty and self-government, winch they inherit as the birthright of every American citizen. The old fires are not extinguished. The men who would not be slaves in '57 will not be in '64. Th answer given then will be given now. If the people at the next election decide against this conspiracy and fraud, an J a corrupted State Senate inter poses to thwart the decision, the lamp-posts of Topeka will groan with the carcasses of recreant bnt defunct Senators. There will be a mass meeting held in Topeka about the second Toes dav of January, iooa, ua woi wo! to the traitor who sets himself up againstihe rights of - - ITATEITlMf.

A man named Bell, keeping a grocery at Aubrey, Kansas, was knocked down t his door on the night of the 24th ult., and robbed of $250. His recovery is doubtful? A law has passed the Legislature detaching the counties of Butler, Irving and Otoe from the county of Lyon, and attaching the same to the county of Chase for judicial purposes. The guard house at Fort Leavenworth was consumed by fire Sunday morning: It is sup posed that it was set on fire by the notorious Pickles, who was chained and confined there by Col. Jennison. The Kansas City Journal says : We are in receipt of private advices which lead us to the confident expectation that work will be im mediately resumed upon the Union Pacific Railway, and prosecuted with more vigor than ever. The following officers have been appointed by the Governor, under the new militia law : Major General, George W. Deitzler. Brigadier Generals, Byron Sherry, of Brown county ; S. M.

The thief Bailey, who broke open the county safe at Ohio City, a few weeks since, was cap tured on the cars between Jefferson City and St. Louis, and $400 of the money stolen recov ered. The thief was placed in the hands of the military at Jefferson City and afterwards escaped. A new ferry boat, the S. C. Pomeroy, has been built for Atchison. She made the trip from St. Louis to Leavenworth in one hundred and eight hours. She is probably the largest and finest ferry boat on the river, and was built at Brownsville, Pennsylvania. Gen. Curtis has divided the Department of Kansas into five districts, and assigned com manders to each. Gen. Blunt has command of the District of the Frontier, embracing all that portion of the Department south of Kansas. Gen. Thomas J. McA'ean commands the District of South A'ansas, comprising all of the State of A'ansas lying south of the Smoky Hill and Kansas rivers. Gen. Thos. A.

About two hundred freedmen a week are enlisted at Chattanooga. They come from Georgia and Alabama, in squads of from five to twenty, many having shackles upon them when they arrive. It is related in the narrative of our officers who have escaped from Richmond, that some of their number were tracked on the Peninsula by the rebels with the aid of bloodhounds, and recaptured. It is one of the most singular coincidences of the war, that Col. Streight, for whom John Morgan was held a hostage, should escape from the prison at Richmond in precisely the same manner as Morgan got away from Columbus.

A bill has been introduced in the United States Senate for the support of the orphan children of soldiers or sailors who die in the service, giving to each State for that purpose eightly thousand acres of public land, and thirty thousand additional for each Congres sional district. It is estimated that the effective strength of the European armies in a time of profound peace amounts to 3,875,847 men nearly equal to the whole population of the State of New York maintained in absolute idleness, at an annual cost to the people of over seven hun dred millions of dollars. Says a Philadelphia paper: If Queen Vic toria would walk down Chestnut street in a pair of thick shoes, with a Balmoral petticoat appearing over her instep, and a waterproof tweed sack on her shoulders, she would reduce our importations from France twenty-five per cent., and probably defer another financial crisis for at least ten years. Michigan is getting into a furore of excite ment over the oil wells. In addition to those at Albion, oil has been found in Calhoun county.

Resignation of Hon. H. L. Jones. Hon. H. L. Jones, Representative from Saline count j, resigned his seat in the House on the 19th ult. The following is his letter to the Speaker of the House on the occasion : Topeka, February 19, 1864. To the Speaker of the House of Represen tatives : Sir On the 9th inst., the Legislature of the State of Kansas in joint session pro ceeded to elect a United States Senator fur six years, whose term of office commences on the 4th of March, A. I). 1865, some thing more than a year hence. Another Legislature, the members of which, both senators and representatives, are required by our Constitution to be elect ed in the interval, will bold a session, the constitutional limit of which will have ex pired before any vacancy of United States Senator from this State wiil occur. Myself and twenty-three others of the House op posed this election as unwarranted and con trary to our sense of justice and a due re gard to the right of the people, to be heard in so important a matter by a choice of a Legislature instructed by them upon such an election. A majority of the members of the House having decided deliberately upon the consu mation of their plan to elect a United State Senator at this session, proceeded to carry out their objeot by overriding parliamentary law, and denying the minority the right to a fair discussion, by appeals from the deci sions of the chair whenever it became necessary to avoid debate. J bad hoped and expected that when the measure was consumatcd the Legislature would confine itself to the legitimate func tions of such a body, and harmony of ac tion be secured upon matters of common interest. J There however seems to me to be a con certed and well-matured determination to pass no measures which the minority on the senatorial question ueem oi interest or im portance to tbeir constituents, and a studied and well conceived plan appears to be adopt ed by the majority,, to not only crush out the minority in the House, but also, as far as possible, to injure their influence before the people by resorting to every de vice to place them ia an unfair and false position before the public. Deeming any further connection with the House on my part useless for the furtherance of any good measure, I have this day sent in to the Governor a resignation of my seat as a member of the House of Representatives from the 74th District. Your, &&, H. L. Jones. Col. Phillips District ef the Frontier. Col. Phillips, with his brigade, met, on the 14tb, at Middle Boggy river, (one hundred miles soutbeast-or fori amitaj a band of rebel Texans and Iadiaas, and had a lively skirmish. Tbe foe were 3,000 strong. Only a small portion of too forces on either 6ide were engaged. Rebels kill ed, forty. Federals, one. The enemy were penned nearly to Fort Arbucklej after that Col. Phillips fell back to the Canadian. Gen. Steele has issued orders, by direc tion of the War Department, including Ft. Smith in the District of Arkansas, and the command 'of Gen.

Timet, ThaAprt?ristfcsi. 1QL A correspondent of the Emporia JTewSf writia fromTonpk. vul H ally been reported to the House by the House by the Committee of Ways and Means. No fenon not belonging' to the. fraud party, was allowed to see it during Us course of preparation, and now it will be rushed through without much farther T con sideration as the majority members1 under stand it to, a fraction, audi havedotbtleaa agreed, in private caucus, to every item it contains. The most palpable and bare faced partiality U exhibited by this bill. Neither the Secretary of State nor the Treasurer in allowed any appropriation for clerk hire, while the Auditor is allowed $1,000, ostensibly for that, but really for electioneering purposes. If there is any department in the State that does not need any clerk it is the Auditor's office. The labor of the Secretary's office must be fifty fold that of the Auditor, and these econom ical 4S and 16 are going to give the Audit or 81,000, and the Secretary nothing. But this is only a 5pecimen of the flagrant inconsistencies of this bill. Pretty fine thing it is to belong to the fraud party 1 It is a pnrt of their plan to crush every one who has the manly independence to de nounce them, and to do anything and every thing which will help one of their own number. " If the sovereign People of Kansas do not emphatically denounce the course of these men, and consign them to political obscurity,) bey do not possess the liberty lov ing characteristics hitherto reputed to them. But they iclll do it. From every part of the State there comes a storm of indigna tion, aye, of xcrath against those guity of this iucursion upon the dearest rights inci dent to Republican government. " Let the intriguers stand from un der !" -- m Endurance. "Give me the black soldier for endu rance," writes an officer in the Kansas 1st "only our boys can keep np with them in the swamps, or under the sun." so thinks Gen. Butler, and so writes one of bis officers who was in tho expedition against Richmond : " As a result of this bard marching, on the first day out, over two hundred bad fallen out of the United States regiments from exhaustion. When our forces reach ed Bottom's Bridge, and discovered that their attempted surprise had been exposed, it is estimated that fully one half of the white sddiers who commenced the march had given out, and the roads back to Wil liamsburg were lined with stragglers. But I have the authority of a captain in one nf white regiments for the statcmeut that not a single colored soldier fell out from illness, exhaustion, or any other cause, and when the rolls were called before the ordered re treat, every single sable son who bad start ed on the march was present and answered to his name !'' Yet Kpntucy proclaims that negro sol diers shall not be enlisted on ber soil ! Aye, and the prejudiced and proud sneer at them, and say, they can do nothing ! Bet ter ring out the voice of cheer. Manlier far to make the hill-sides and plains echo with praise and encouragement. Times. The Draft. It seems to be a settled fact that we are to have a draft in Kansas. Tbe quotas for the Northern and Southern Districts have been assigned, and the Board of Enroll ment will at once prepare for the draft which will commence on March 10th : This is but tbe legitimate result of Gov. Carney's factious opposition to recruiting for tho old regiments while heavy pre miums and bounties wereoffe red for recruits. The increased bounties ceased to be paid on tbe 1st inst., and the premiums have been reduced. Tbe premium and bounty was unprecedented, and a splendid opportunity was given to fill np. the old regiments and avoid the draft. But Carney, in his guber natorial capacity, interfered, and two months were lost, in which enough men might have been raised to fill our quota. Since Car ney's embargo has been raised, over two hundred men have been enlisted and mus tered by Captain McCabon, Provost Mar shal of the Northern District, and about one hundred ' in tbe Southern District by Captain Shannon. Conservative, One of the Escaped Prisoner. A letter from tbe Army of tbe Potomac informs us that Lieut. Scadamore, one of tbe officers who escaped from prison with Straight and party, came into our lines last night, having been on the way 19 dajs. He bad intended to proceed by the way of Gordonsville toward the Ohio river, think ing bis chances of escape and getting away in that direction better than by tbe Penin sula, as her felt certain of being captured bad he gone the other way. ' After traveling sixty miles bis knees failed bim and be was forced to lie in a mud bole, as be termed it, for nine days. A negro took care of him and became bis companion, and he resumed bis journey. At another time be was com pelled to lie concealed for three days. He saw no troops near Richmond. On bis route through tbe country he saw only women, children and negroes. He repre sents Lee's army as pretty strong, but no signs of acting visible. He was captured near Rome, Ga., and had been ten months in prison. 19 Telegraphic dispateh from East Ten nessee says, In several coanties of Middle Tennessee, rebels who have not taken tbe oatk are running for county ofices. Secat sieniata are organising to -sapped -them. Mncb apprehension lis felt by the araigbt oat Union aten who are disponed to eon aider the election prematnre, and as giving the rebels a chance to form political or- gaaisations. The aati-alaverj feeling is increasing among Unionists. Jvferal Pafcat N iOar forces have beea badly State! in Florida. Nws of it reached New York o tbJt26th; nii details art given; only the general result. The battle took place on the 20tb. Our troops, under Seymour, met the enemy, fifteen thousand strong, fifteen miles beyond Jacksonville and eight miles beyond San derson, on the line of the Jacksonville and Tallahaste irailroad. Both fought desper ately during three hours, and at sunset our forces, overpowered by greater numbers, retired to Sanderson, taking with them the greater part of our wounded. Col. Terry was left dead on the field. Col. Reed, Hungarian officer, was mortally wounded. All tbe officers of Hamilton's battery were wounded. The Cosmopolitan arrived at Beaufort on Monday evening, with two hundred and fifty wounded, Col. Reed among them. The enemy's loss is not known. They captured five guns. It is supposed that their troops were from Bragg's army. Hardee himself was on the field, having come to Florida on a visit to his family. Our loss is from thirteen to fifteen hundred. Leav. Times. Bebel View of Shaman's Move. The Atlanta Appeal says Sherman's pur pose is still a mystery as to whether be will move against Mobile or turn eastward. Sherman, with an unexpected rapidity has moved against our weakest point. Mississippi is the Eygpt of tbe Confed eracy, where, if not ejected, he can subsist nntil spring, and do more damage than winning a pitched battle. He is making' war on our subsistence and resour ces, which to destroy is to defeat ns. Sherman marches in a solid body with bis artillery, in front, rear and flanks, and his cavalry close under his guns. Not a man is allowed to leave far enough to steal a chicken or a pig. Rebel cavalry are hover ing around bim, but are unable to harrass bim. The citizens arc invited to arms to repel the invaders. A, A correspondence passed between Gens. Perk and Pickett, in relation to the death of the rebel Col. Shaw, and the sub sequent execution by rebels of a negro soldier for alleged murder. Gen. Peck encloses the President's order for retaliation in case soldiers of tbe United States are killed in violation of the laws of war, and says he shall refrain from execut ing rebel soldiers until he learns Pickett's action in tbe premises. Picket replies that had he caught any negro who bad killed either Confederate officer, soldier or citizen, be would have immediately executed bim. He bas 450 U. S. officers and soldiers in his possession, and for every man Peck executes he will bang ten. m m m Enlistments in the Unios Army in Arkansas. Since tbe capture of Little Rock, Arkansas, enlistments in Arkansas have rapidly increased. Three full regi ments, of one thousand men each, are now in the service, armed and equipped. Two other regiments are filling up. Home guards for the protection of towns and neighbor hoods have been and are being organized into companies and battalions in several districts. They number thus far from 8o0 to 1,000. Three artillery companies are also being raised, The whole number of volunteers, since Oct. 10th may be stated at six thousand. In addition to this, it is estimated that 'there are two thousand vol unteers from Arkansas in the Union arm ies serving out of tbe State. Rem QUtoerUsrmerUs, rJBOCEBIES AIU SEEDS!
