The Republicans of Kansas, together with all those who endorse with President's Emancipa tion Proclamation, and who are in favor of an earnest, vigorous and uncompromising prose cution of the war for the suppression of the slaveholders' rebellion, the principles enuncia ted in the platform adopted by the National Republican Union Convention at Baltimore, on the 8th of June, 1864, and who are in favor of the election of Abraham Lincoln and An drew Johnson for President and Vice Presi dent, are requested to meet at Topeka, in dele gate convention, on Thcbsday, the 8Tn"bAT oe September, 1804, at 12 o'clock, M., for the purpose of placing in nomination candidates for the following offices: A Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, Auditor, Treasurer, Superintendent of Public Instruction, Attorney General, Judge of the Supreme Court, Representative in Con gress and three Presidential Electors for the State.

A draft is or dered for the fifth of September. The repeal of the commutation clause will render the draft effective in procuring men, which will keep our armies strengthened. The situation of affairs afford ground for hope that this is the last call. God grant it. . SANTA FE MAILA CHANGE DEMANDED. The people of Leavenworth City claim, and properly enough, that the mail from Santa Fe should come direct to their place. Some of their editors think the mail now being brought East from Santa Fe on the old road to Kansas City should b brought, by way of Lawrence or To peka, dirlct to their city. Wo grant that the financial and commercial energy of Leavenworth City have fairly won the trade of New Mexico, and that the interests of all parties demand that the two points should be connected by the most direct and shortest route, but we differ with them as to the means consu mate to the end. The change by way of Law rence or Topeka may aid them a little, but is this what is needed ? Look at facts. St. Joseph, Missouri, is the only distributing post office on or near our Eastern border. From this point, one portion of the Santa Fe mail is taken South and East to Kansas City, and from that point is carried Wet in a weekly line of mail conveyances to Santa Fe by way of Fort Larned; while the other portion of the same mail is taken West to Junction City by the daily line of coaches belonging to the Kansas Stage Company. From this latter place the same Com pany carries it in their weekly line to Fort Lar oed, where'it unites with the mail from Kansas Cky, and is carried from that point to Santa.Fe by the Kansas City company. The difference, aside from the folly of the Government in em ploying two companies to carry the same mail. consists mainly in the directness and distance of the routes. The route from Leavenworth by way of Kansas City and on the old Santa Fe road is quite sixty miles further than the route up the Kansas Valley by way of Junction City. That portion of the Eastern mail which reaches Leavenworth on Frida' morning, starts directly West in the daily coach, and reaches Fort Larned Sabbath evening; wHoreas, that portion of the mail which starts at the same hour, and goes by way of Kansas City, reaches Fort iarned just one week later. Passengers going through fare in the same way. The reason is obvious : the dis tance is greater, and there are more delays, be aides, one is a weekly line through, and the other is a daily half way. Let the Government yield to the logic of events and not attempt to chain the Eastern terminus of this Santa Fe mail to the same point it was twenty years ago, and long after events have indicated the necessity of a different course. It will bo seen that the Government is paying two lines to carry one mail, from the Missouri river to Fort Larned, and that while they par and'runa daily line to J unetiooCity, that should carry all the Santa Fe mail to that plaee and on to Larned, they also pay the Kansas City Com pany to carry the aame mail from Kansas City to Fort Larned, thus doubling the expense. Why aot demand that the mail going to and returning firaea Santa Fe, should go by way of Juaction ty, the terminus of the daily line West from XaarcBWortb f If Leave worth wants a direct mail to SaBta Fe let her see to it that the Department at Wash ington stops this foolish aad wastefol expendi ture of mosey. Let the Kansas City Use to Fort Lamed be dropped, aad the present expense now being incurred in carrying on, this unnecessary line put on the direct line up the Kansas Valley, extending to Denver, thus giving to Leavenworth a daily mail West on the most direct roete to Santa Fe. as far as the Smoky Hill Crossing, or to Fort Larned, if thought best. It is time the energy of Leavenworth was exerted to open up her own her own natural thoroughfares West, and not any longer join hands with others to so run the emigrant roads, and emigrants, and mail lines, that she must beg for' the crumbs of other routes. Let her people see to it that a line of coaches and mail is run West up the Smoky Hill and through to Denver on n route more than one hundred miles nearer than eitlior of the other rontes North or South. Let the daily line be extended from Junction City along the Smoky Hill river to its source, then through to Denver, and they will see that they have not only a direct route to Denver secured, but to Santa Fe, and that they have saved the Governmentthe expense of carry ing the Santa Fe mail three hundred and eighty miles. That is, let the direct road to Denver be opened up, and let the Santa Fe mail connect with it at the crossing of the Smoky Hill, seventy miles this side of Fort Larned, and the Govern ment can save the expense of carrying this mail on both routes to that point Nature has clearly indicated this as the proper point to have the two roads connect. Such a plan will also devel op a valuable portion of the State, and bring the Government Posts into easy and safe communica tion. It needs no prophet's ken to foresee that very soon the mill and travel to both Denver and Santa Fe will pass up the Kansas Valley, on the Pacific Railroad. Why not anticipate it, and be ready to meet the necessity ? Then, we say to Leavenworth, aid us to open up this natural highway West. Ask and demand that the line of travel and mail route the shortest and best be opened up at once, and supplied with the mail service which naturally belongs to the route, and you will have secured to your enviable metro politan City the direct intercourse not only of Santa Fe and New Mexico but the vast mineral wealth of Colorado and Arizonia. STATE NEWS. Dr. Buddington has been commissioned Sur geon of the one hundred days regiment. Shawnee county raised her full quota of 34 men for the one hundred day regiment, paying $50 bounty. The flag captured by Col. Ford from the bushwhackers at Camden Point, was the regu lar Confederate banner, and on it was inscribed Protect Missouri," Emigrants from the States are passing through our city every day with their teams, stock and household goods. Such settlers are always welcome, and are the ones that develop the resources of any country. Leav. Bulletin. Gen. Wcssel, formerly Colonel of the Kansas 8th, now a prisoner in the hands of the rebels, is one of the officers proposed to be confined in that portion of Charleston being destroyed by our shells. A private letter, dated Fort -Kearny, July 7th, to the St. Joe Heralfl, says a most terrible Btorm, accompanied by the most terrific thun der and lightning, had just occurred there. The writer further says he saw seven men and twenty head of cattle knocked down by one clap of thunder. A farmer named John Brown, living in Lan caster township, in this county, on the milita ry road, about fourteen miles from this city, had one of his leg shockingly mangled in a mowing machine one day last week. The muscles, arteries and ligaments were nearly all cut off in two different places. Still the man is likely to recover without serious perm anent injury. Atchison Free Press. The Tros Investigator says that last week Dr. E. H. Grant and Maj. Joseph Penny opened the Indian Mounds at Bellemont, in Doniphan county. In one they found an altar arched over, having the appearance of having been used as an altar for the sacrifice of human be ings. They also found human bodies of all sizes ; some infant skulls, and other skulls of male and female adults. They also found ar row heads and other curiosities. . Resolutions Adopted at Tat lot' Hall Saturday night, July 16 : Whereas, The Constitution and laws of the State make" the Governor the Com mander-in-Chief of the militia force, giving him fall power in case of insurrection or invasion to call into aotive service any por tion of the militia ; and whereas, this power is thus most clearly restricted, therefore, Resolved That while with loyal hearts and open hands, at this time in view of the defenceless condition of the State, tender the Executive the full quota of troops as signed to this locality, still we feel it our duty to denounce me exercise or sucn an authorized military power to raise United States troops as a most bhamelesB and base assumption of power, one illegal and void, and one creating a most dangerous prece dent in our history. Resolved, That we regard the act of the Commander in chief, in ordering a draft for troops which he had tendered, after we had far exceeded our quota, as degrading to a State loyal and patriotic beyond question, and ever ready to respond to all proper calls for volunteers. Resolved, That while wc are ever ready to answer all calls of the Government, still we shall feel it our duty to treat all such unauthorized exercise of military power as a nullity and utterly void. Don't Get Discouraged. When Grant lay at Young's Point, and bad failed with his canals, and his Yazoo expedition, and bis assault on Haine's Blaff, a rebeUprison er was exulting, and said Grant had failed in everything and must give it up j Vicks burg eould not be taken.

A Caller Yeltmteeis to Serve Ox Tear. ' A PROCLAMATION. By the President of the United States of America: Whereas, By the act approved July 4lh, 1864, entitled " An Act further to regulate and provide for the enrolling and calling out the national forces and for other purposes," it is provided that the President of the United States may in bis discretion at any time hereafter call for any number of men, as volunteers for the respective terros'of one, two and three Years for the military service, and that in case the quota, or any part thereof, of any town, township, watd of a city, or election district, or county not so divided, shall not be filled within the space of fifty days after such call, the President shall immediately order a draft for one year to fill such quota, or any part thereof, which may be unfilled ; and Whereas, The new enrollment hereto fore ordered is so far completed as that the reserve national act of Congress be put in operation for recruiting and keeping np the strength of the armies in the field, for gar rison and such military operations as may be required for the purpose of suppressing the rebellion and restoring the authority of the United States Government in the insur gent States. Now, therefore, I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, do issue this my call for men for military ser vice, provided that all credits which may be established under section 8 of the afore said act, on account of persons who have entered the naval service during the present rebellion, and the credits for men furnished to the military service in excess of calls heretofore for volunteers, will be accepted under this call for one, two or three years, as they may elect, and will be entitled to the bounty provided by law for the period of service for which they enlist, and 1 here by proclaim, order and direct that immedi ately after the fifth day of September, 1864, being fifty days from the date of this call, a draft for troops, to serve one year, shall be hold in every town, township, ward, or a county not so subdivided, to fill the quota which shall be assigned to it, under this scale or any part thereof which may be unfilled by volunteers on the said fifth day of September, 1864. In testimony where of I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed, at the city of Washington, this 18th day of July, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-four, and of the Independence of the United States the 89th. Abraham Lincoln. By the President : W. H. Seward, Secretary of State. Resisting the Tax Law. ' Two farmers in Hunterdon. New Jersey, undertook to resist the' collection of the in ternal revenue tax by rofusing to pay it. The consequence was they were indicted, plead guilty, and each had To pay a fine of $500. The amount of tax which they re fused to pay was one dollar. A man that undertakes to resist tho Federal laws, when properly executed will always como out of the contest second best. And yet wc need not be surprised to bear of repeated in stances of these attempts to resist the law. Simply because the conductor of every cop perhead newspaper iu the Country is now laboring to incite the ignorant portion of the community to oppose the legal authorities. Indeed, the copperhead leaders seem to have no purpose in view now but to pro voke a collision between a portion of the masses of the loyal States and the Govern ment. A Word to Farmers. We do not beliesMbat it is necessary .to say anything to' farmers relative to a most strenuous effort in the production 'of every eatable whieh can be grown in this latit jde. They certainly must see that there is no thing but is remunerative which can at all be made digestible. It is no excuse to say that labor is high, $2 or $3 per day is nothing, compared to the prices to be ex pectcd for produce within tbe ensuing year. Whether tbe war ends or continues, tbe result is the same. If the last gun of tbe rebellion was fired to-day, not a bushel of grain would remain in the North when tbe hour of another harvest arrived. Of all grains and vegetables, therefore, which may be sown as a second crop, put them in .and do not spare expense in doing so. It will pay well in the end. St. Joseph Herald. Foreign Items. The Paris Star says the Kearsage would leave Cherbourg on the 5th of July, to cruise in the channel and watch the move ments of the rebel cruizers or rather cruzer, the Florida being at present only to fear. A report states that the Yeddo, lately built at Bordeaux, will be completed at Amsterdam and commanded by Semmes. Private telegrams from Copenhagen say it has been determined, at a council of Min isters, to treat for peace directly with Prus sia, upon the basis of Denmark being ad mitted into German Confederacy as tbe only means to save the Monarchy. This is regarded as highly improbable. Prussia was making active naval operations at Cron stadt. Left out in the Cold. Mr. George P. March, in his new volume, " Man aad Na ture," says if a canal should be nude across the Isthmus of. Darien, that it night pos sibly so change the coarse of the Gulf Stream that an immediate depression of the mean temperature of Western Europe woald follow, and tbe climate would be so changed that a total revolution of the domestic and rural economy of human life woald follsw. Where they now have almost perptual ram mer, they woald icicles alssost the year round. The result would be that earigrs tioa would at oaoe low te this eoaatry to keep oat of the cold, aad New JEnglsan woald be rather a comfortable place to live in, though ws should lose the monopoly of the ice trade, oraisAL hews ram. The Fourth of July was celebrated in the Massachusetts State Prison in fne style. All the prisoners were in favor of liberty. The President has issued a proclama tion approving the plan of the reconstruc tion of the seceded States adopted by Congress at the close of its second session. A Lackawana, Pa., train, with about tight hundred and fifty rebel prisoners on their wav to Camn Elmira, collided with tbe Pennsylvania Coal Company's train near Shapola, killing and wounding a large num ber, reported at over one hundred. A Washington special says it is esti mated that the rebels secured 10,000 head of horses an cattle, beside droves of sheep and bogs, which they got across the Potomac while threatening Washington. Brief as was the conflict before Washington it was bloody. Their killed and wounded must have been fivo hundred. The small and wasted brigades of tbe 6th corps made sad havoc among them. The Indianapolis corsespondent of the Cincinnati Gazette complains that the rebel officers who are prisoners at that city arc prisoners only in name. They board at tbe principal hotel ; and eat their meals with the guests. It seems hardly possible that with full knowledge of the enormities of tbe Libby prison, so fully proved, such dis graceful leniency should be exercised. All interested would do well stand advised that, in accordance with the new law, receipts for the payment of any sum of money, or for the payment of any debt due. not being for the satisfaction of any mortgage, or judgment or decreo of any court, and a receipt for the delivery of any property, require the affixture of a two cent revenue stamp. An exchnnge thinks that Abraham Lincoln is the " fittest man to conduct the great struggle to a fitting close." Tbe Convention at Baltimore believed that Old Abe should have some help in the " fitting close " business, and so it nominated a gen tleman whose profession used to be fitting clothes. Tbe Governor of Georgia has issued a proclamation warning tbe Confederate for ces not to dostroy Atlanta nor the railroads contiguous thereto, as they are the property of the State, and that if necessary he will call out the Georgia State militia and with draw the Georgia troops from the Confeder acy to carry out tbe purpose of his procla mation. The three hundred dollar commutation clause is repealed. The Copperheads all voted against its repeal. A few months ago tbey were making a great opposition to tbe " Lincoln Government " for having a law which would permit " shoddy patriots" to buy themselves out of the army, com pelling poor democrats to take their places. Such is the consistency of Northern sym pathisers. A Brisk Skirmish. The Herald's correspondent gives an ac count ofa marine raid as follows, near Point of Rocks. Virginia : At 4 o'clock a, m. Monday, July 11th, Lieut. Chambers, of the Third Pennsyl vania Artillery, with 130 men, crossed James river, below Dutch Gap, and above Gen. Foste.. s pontoon bridges, for tbe pur pose of attacking some rebels stationed in (some mills, barns and houses, situated on a placo known as Cox's Farm. Tbe force having looked at the designated spot below Dutch Gap, from the steamer Stepping Stone, remained there until nearly daylight yesterday morning, at which time the com manding lieutenant determined tbe attack. Thcenejny wasfound in strong force in barhs,miHs aid houses of the farm. Tbey consisted of three hundred troops, com manded' "by Lieut. Gov. Harrington, of South Carolina, who was captured. When out forces advanced to within fifteen yards of the buildings, the enemy opened a brisk fire with musketry, resulting in no injury. When the discovery was made that the place could not be taken by any regular attack, Lieut. Chambers ordered a charge, most gallantly leading it, which resulted in the capture of one lieutenant and a sergeant and badly wounding one corporal and elev en privates. The command was accompa nied by a firing party, which upon arriving at tbe buildings smoked the rebels out, compelling tbem to give battle in open ground. In tbe engagement which imme diately followed, the rebels suffered severe ly in killed and. wounded ; our loss only one man. A torpedo, together with a gal vanic battery, a large quantity of powder, small arms, ammunition and camp equipage captured. Also a large amount of grain destioyed. ' m m Washington Hews. Tbe New York Post's Washington special says Secretary Fcssenden will soon issue proposal for a more extensive loan than fifty millions. He reports the confidence felt in Grant by bankers and financiers in New York as one of the most gratifying features of his visit. Tbe heads of Departments have called for lists of clerks who refused to join tbe force in defence of Washington. ' Ihe Baltimore railroad is fally repaired, aad trains, ran reeularly. Gunpowder bridge is fully repaired. All trains are ranning regularly as heretofore, to and from New York aodWashington. The' rebel loss in killed, wounded aad prisoners ia their demonstrations agaiast Washington will be over two thousand. Prisoners represent sixty-three different regiments,, and belong, to ive different di visions. Hat There are two men in the eoaatry whoa) the rebels hate above all others.

There in two kinds of " raids ' in this sec tion. One is the sneaking, thieving burn ing and murdering foray of those incarnate devils called bushwhackers, and the. other is the orderly, deliberate, open-day perform ance, finder the sanction of U. S. military authority, and oommonly called an " expe dition." If any body doubts that the Union " raids " are less effective than those of the Missouri secesh, we refer them to somo account of Col. Ford's recent "expe dition," together with facts we have recent lv nnblished. It is pretty evident that the citizens of Platte and some oi me aajomiog counues are beine made partakers of tbe bitter fruits resulting from their persistent harboring of full-blown traitors. .Ever since tno oegin- ning of the war that country has been a certain refuge to rebels of tbe worst de scription, and bushwhackers have roamed over it at their leisure, murdered its best citizens with impunity, and devoured the substance ef every, truly loyal man who has been exposed to their depredations. Tbe time has come for retaliation, and that is to be equally relentless, thorough and energetic nobody can doubt who has learned anything of the operations of the men who are now "chasing out Thornton. It is a desperate remedy, but no worse than the disease warrants, and if the patient survives the action of tbe prescription we think be will turn out a new creature, en tirely purged of the fatal heresies he has so long patronized, and with a lively appre hension of the benefits resulting from Kan gas practice. Leav. Conservative. m m m Latest Hews. Washington, July 18. A special to the Tribune says at 7 o'clock last evening our foroes were seven miles beyond Leesbnrg in pursuit of the rebels, who were making rapid time up the Shen andoah valley towards Stanton. A number of stragglers were captured by our cavalry and sent to the rear. It is believed Gen. Evans was severely wounded in the fight 'before Washington, and was lying very low in the vicinity of Leesbnrg, concealed by sympathizers. Heavy firing was heard yesterday at Great ialls, in tbe direction of Edward s Ferry, supposed to bo a collision between our advance and the rebel rear. On Saturday the enemy pickets were posted along Goose creek, about twenty-two miles above tbe Chain bridge, twenty-five miles from Washington, and about half way from Drainesville and Leesburg. The reb els were in strong force. Rebel .cavalry scouts in considerable force came into Lees burg last night, three miles beyond tbe I bridge, found our piskyta there, and cleared out with their knowledge quickeucd by a few musket balls. A provisional brigade, organized for tbe defenco of Washington, and composed of the slightly wounded from tbe various hos pitals, has been disbanded. Most of the most of the men will be sent to their regi ments in tbe field to-day. The following dispatch is from the Rich mood Enquirer of July 16th: Okalona, July 14. To Gen.

One of tbe mail agents from Hagcrstown reports on his arrival here to day that a well authenticated rumor prevailed yester day of a collision between our forces and tbe retreating rebel raiders at Leesburg, Va., resulting in tbe capture of eight hun dred wagons loaded with corn and oats. Many of tbe teamsters cut their horses loose and managed to escape, but iu tbe effort to repulse tbe tremendous onslaught of our troops, hundreds of the rebel escort were captured. m m am The Proposition of Erring Brethren. A dispatch from Niagara Falls says C C. Clay, of Alabama, Jacob Thompson, Messrs. Beverly Tucker and George N. Saunders are at that place to devise a basis for action at the Chicago Convention which shall end the war, and secure the triumph of the Democratic party. Though not claiming' to speak for the seceded States as yet, they hold out strong hopes of getting their as sent. Tbe propositions are believed to be as follows : First, return seceded"States to the Union. Second, Assumption of Confederate debts.' Third, Recognition of the freedom of slaves actually emancipated in tbe progress of the war, and the status quo ante helium as to all othors. From the Lexington Union we learn that the guerrillas are getting more bold every day. We judge that matters are really worse in Fay, Carroll and Chari ton counties thin in Platte.

The rebel then asked Franklin, who disclosed himself, feeling convinced that ha bad been pointed out by one of tha passen gers. In a few moments Gilmore camo ia and told Franklin that he must consider himself as his prisoner. The General was then put in a carriage and taken to Reister town, where they stopped for the night.
