We again giro a half sheet, the absence of our other half compelling us. We will ho on"our feet again next week, aa he re turned Friday afternoon. m m THE BTATE CONVEHTIOsT THE O0VXBH0B. The State Convention which will assemble on the 8th of September will virtually decide who eh all be the Governor for the next two years. The coming two years will be a period of event ful interest to the abaterial welfare of the State, and very much will depend on the sleepless yigllance and untiring energy as well as the practical good sense of the Governor, whether this period shall add to or detract from our future greatness. Disguise the fact as we may, the State, though possessing a most fertile soil, mild and very healthy climate, still has had in tho past, and will have in the future, some Rerious drawbacks. One among the chief obsta cles which will weigh down Kansas is the existence of a constitutional and legal machinery which must very soon become burdensome to a new and sparsely settled State. This evil. though one of no ordinary character to a new State, has been greatly increased by the pending struggle, which opened on the plains of Kansas, and which has to this hour produced that condi tion of things which jb the bane of all true and m pul material development. And troth demands that we should say that while the fermented condition of the country has repelled capital and that class of solid yeomanry who dig gold from the soil, it has at the same time drawn to our borders a swarm of hungry political adven turers, eager to catch their prey amid the trou bled elements. In tho early settlement of the State, town speculators swarmed along our bor der, each one with a paper city in his pocket, and a golden dream of lies in his mouth, with v. Inch to draw the unwary into his interest by getting him to either invest in the phantom, city, or settle near its rich gates. Thus have thousands of our emigrants been gulled and located in those portions of the State most disturbed by border difficulties, and the result baa been that very many of tho early ones have left the State. This policy has greatly retarded the settlement and development of the central and western portion of the State, and at the same time has not been of lasting benefit to the other portion. One of tho striking manifestations of this fact is seen in the divergence of the wagon roads North and South qb you go West from the Mis souri river. With one exception, all these roads pass out of the State either to the North or South long before you reach the centre of the State East and West ; and the road that constitutes tho exception passes out at the extreme South WcBtcrn corner of the State. Thus leaving the Western and central portion, of the State uncut with a single general thoroughfare West. With the gold fields of Colorado, lying directly West of KansA, with the Kansas valley, the great artery of the State, it would seem qb if the East ern portion was most deeply invested in the early and rapid development o the oentral and Western portion. But the fact appears otherwise. While the centre and much of Western Kansas is the Goshen of the State, still to the politicians and most of the public men it is. an. tjxxsowx Region. Indeed, Leavenworth city, the great commercial metropolis of the Missouri river, does not eeem to perceive the fact that through the Kansas valley she must gather the wealth of Colorado, New Mexico and Arizonia, hence we eea her begging for crumbs from those very lines of general thoroughfare that have been crippling her interests. We say these things not to complain, but to call the attention, of. the people of, the State to the fact that Kansas interests demand a different policy from the one pursued in the past The State must be developed, notona pocthm, but all. Each locality should receive such attention as and purposes which will tend to rapidly develop the i entire State. The West, and indeed -the whole State, is most deeply inteiested in hurrying up the main railroad interests of the State, via : the Kaasasand Neosho Valley roads, and the road through the Northern tier of coun ties West ; while a man selected from this sec tion could not but feel a lively interest in, the rapid progress of a railroad- North and South through the densely settled portion of Eastern Kansas. Not only our principal railroad inter ests can be quite as well looked after by a Gov ernor from Western Kansas, but all cur material interests. The State is in a great measure robbed of the advantages of a direct route to Colorado and New Mexico. The hour of trifling is past. The logic of events demand a different State policy on all those measures of public utility which press themselves on our attention at this hour, and we much mistake the temper and spirit of the people of the West, and along the Neosho valley, if they have not reached a point where party preference will yield to material advancement. The hour and public interests demand prompt action, untiring energy, and a practical and economical State policy, -which will defer the hour of aa approaching financial pressure till w e can so far complete some of our main lines 67 railroad that the flow of emigration and capital will enable us to outride the storm. Eastern Kansas has had more than a dozen Governors, and yet the State is only settled half its length. Let the peoptr now try one from the West, and see if he will not aid them not only to develop the other half, but to quicken all those material interests so valuable to the Eastern and Southern portions of the State. The experience of the past causes ns to ask the people if such a change as the one we propose would not be for the best interests of the whole State. DISTRICT OF THE UPPER ARKANSAS AND ITS COMMAHDEB. will best subserve the interests of the whole. To consummate sch a result, we need. & sys tem and an energy of execution which has not been seen in the past We need a man for Gov ernor who can see the wants of the State, and who has pride enough to do ali'ia. his. power to develop every portion of, this good land. If such a man can be found it matter little to us from what portion of the State he comes.; but if the policy of the past fourteen Governors is, to be found in the future, then we hold up our hands and ask the people to nominate and elect some Western map for Governor. We do not say we have better men, West foe Governor than other portions of the State, but we do eay we have as good, as competent, and as energetic, and they possess this yery iaspottaat advantage over the most of our Governors, they are far better acquainted with the whole State, Tith ile material reiourcec, and those plans .Major General James G-. Blunt arrived at Fort Riley on the 2d inst. Ho was accompanied by his Aids-do Camp, Captains Loring and Hinton, and Lieut. Tappan. Tho organization of the District of the Upper Arkansas, under tho command of so gallant and efficient a soldier, is another, as it is the best, proof we have yet had of the fact that the necessities of Western Kansas and the Frontier aro being understood by those in command of the West. To Major General Curtis, commanding this Department, our thanks are due for the energetic manner in which he haB met and is now endeavoring to suppress the present Indian outrages ; feared, as they are, to be premonitory symptoms of a savage war upon the Plains and frontier settlements. Our citixens know well, without recapitulation on our part, the prompt action of General Curtis in raising and sending forward a force to meet the emergency in the neigh borhood of Fort Lamed. That the appointment of Major General Blunt to the command of the new frontier District is a guarantee of aotivo and syste matic protection, so far as the means at his disposal will allow, our citizens feel assured when they remember the brilliant record of this energetic and successful officer. James G. Blunt first raised a volunteer company for tho Second 'Regiment Kansas Volunteers, Col. R. B. Mitchell. He was then practicing medicine at Mt. Gilead, Anderson county. Owing to a disagree ment he was not mustered into the Second, and immediately made himself active in the organization of the Third Regiment, Col. James Montgomery, by tho men of which he was elected Lieutenant-Colonel. Sort iDg with General Lane in the campaign of '61, which was so successful in deterring Price from, invading Kansas, Colonel Blunt ac quired a reputation, in command of the cavalry, as a daring and successful officer. His pursuit of the bushwhacker Mathews, who with a, party of rebel Indians,, sacked Humboldt, in September61 is fresh in our Mind. Starting from Fort Scott with a small 'body of cavalry, Mathews having twentmWr hours the start, Colonel Blunt overtook the raiders some distance below the Osage line in the Cherokee Nation, killed the leader and Many men, utterly routing the band, capturing their horseB, arms, &c. This is aa example of his char acter as a soldier as in small so in great affairs. In, May, 1862, Colonel Blunt was ap pointed 'Brigadier General of Volunteers, and shortly afterwards assigned, to the De partment of Kansas. The drnnkea Sturgis had terribly disorganised affairs, ajdding to the tonfoston wbieh- the Unwarranted inter ference of Governor Robinson, with, the Kansas regiments, in the-field had created. Yet, during the time General Blunt com manded ibis Department & period of five months, he assist Senator ane in nrieng, equipping, and sandiog to tuiTfelL'thi Eleventh, Twelfth, and Takteeitk Kgi me'nts, and also in 'organizing the trat,KgV ment of negro troops raised in the United States, tinder, the sanction of. the War De partment, .During his administration he also .(Organized 'the Indian Brigade, three regiments of .loyal. Cherokee, Creeks, and Seminoles which ' under command of- the gallant Colonel Phillips, has and is now doing most valuablo service on the Arkan sas river: General Blunt also organized and sent forward the Indian Expedition under Colonel Weer. This movement was entirely successful in the conquest of the Cherokee Territory. Colonel Clarkson and his command wcro captured, and Colonel Drew (Cherokee) bronght bis regiment into our lines. The men enlisted in the Union army. But owing to a quarrel be tween Weer and Salomon, and the arrest of the former by the latter,. the troops were brought back to Fort Scott. General Blunt took command in November, '62, of the 1st Division of the Army of the Frontier, which under Brigadier General Schofield was moving through South-Western Mis souri against Hindman, Marmaduko and Cooper. General Blont's Division was composed of 6ix Kansas regiments, three batteries, two Wisconsin regiments, and the Indian brigade. The second battle of Ncwtonia and that of Fort Wayne followed the forward move ment. Both were fought by the 1st Divis ion, and both were victories. At Fort Wayne a battery of four guns were cap-' turcd by Colonel Crawford (2d Kan. Col.) then Captain company A, 2d Kan. cavalry. Schofield, with the 2d and 3d Divisions, retired to Springfield, ho' himself returning to rest on stolen laurels at St. Louis.. Gen, Blunt, with his own Division of less than 6000 effective' men, knowing that .Hind man's whole army had crossed the Arkansas, pushed forward to meet them. At Cane Hill ho encountered and defeated Marma duke, who with an advance of 12,000 men was moving North, The General then sent back to General Hcrron, then at Springfield, commanding the balance of the Army of the Frontier to join him by forced marches. The gallant Herron did so, marching over 120 miles in three days. He was attacked at Prairie Groye by Hindnian's army, 24,000 strong. Through the cowardly condjet of a Missouri Colonel, Hindman had succeeded in passing Blunt at Cane Hill. The latter moved in haste to Her- ron's assistance, and at 2 P. M. attacked the rebels. Our united army numbered about 9000 men. The battle was severe and oostly, but the rebels were defeated, retreat ing in the night under an armistice, granted for the purposo of burying their dead, which were left on tho field. Then followed the famous raid on Van Burcn, whioh sent Hindman's army in disorderly route to Little Rock. The conquest of Northern Arkansas was complete. Had Gen. Blunt been sustained, the whole State might have been reduced with little loss. Schofield, however, arrived and assumed command. Our readers are familiar with the promo tion of General Blunt ; with the persecu tions to which he was subjected by bis. jealous rival, Schofield, when on the remo val of General Curtis from the Department of Missouri, the former was placed in com mand. During the portion of the summer of '63 that General Blunt commanded the District of Kansas, he recruited the 14th Kansas cavalry and the 2d Colored regiment. Be ing placed in command of "the District of the Frontier, consisting of a. portion of Southern Kansas, Western Arkansas and the Indian Territory, General Blunt, with less than 3000 troops, carried fbswazd a successful campaign against Cooper and Steele, with an army of from 6000. to 10,000 men, whioh resulted in the victory of Honey Springs, the pursuit at Perry ville the occupation of Fort Smith, and the driv ing of the rebels-to the Red river of Texas. Since thai campaign intrigues, both in and out 'of the army, have succeeded in partially depriving General Blunt of a suit able command and field for its exercise. General Curtis could not have placed a man in command here whose reputation would inspire greater confidence, andrjebose vigor ous qualities-be more likely to insure suc cess.. We have given this, brief history of his careery that our citixens may be inspired with confidence,, as well as be aroused to all eke exert;u in tendering suchaid.lolus administration will make it moeVcondu eine:to the publio service. andc topic own security. - Of bissintended movement it would be premature to "speak. ' SnSce it io say now tiat neMUes will be spediuaugtuaJted. whereby, confidence will be restored, and it is believed protection guaranteed both to the settlements juid the immensely import ant commerce, and mails that pass, through this District. Wo .shall' -soon knew . the extent of tho Indiau outbreak, and should it prove, as many- well informed,'pors6hs anticipate, a concerted movement fomented by rebel emissaries, our people may rest assured that in their new Commander they have an officer full equal to the emergency. That he will be sustained to the full extent of the mean3 at the "disposal of, this Dcpart- mcuij-iuu jaic action oi uonerai, uurus fully testifies. That our citizens wilLlie prompt in answering all necessary calls, and rendering all possible aid to the mili tary authority, is proven by the readiness by which the militia have responded, and the celerity with which they have taken the field, .

We have since learned, from a reliable and disinterested source, some of tho particulars. On Wednesday, a little after noon, Mr. Ualiett waa passing a group, ot persons seated on and around the steps of ft build ing in the streets of Wyandotte. O. J. Taloott was among the group- Aa Mr. iHallett, approached, hopolitelyly bowed wnn a sauuatory -wave o,;jmq nanu, ana passed by, when Mr. TalcottJ.,who held a Spencer repeating rifle in 'his hand, raised up, stepping, up the steps, and raising 'tbe weapon above the beads of tho other per sons, fired -the-ball entering Mr, Hallett's back and breaking the spine. He fell, raised upon bis knees, exclaiming, "Ob, God ! 1 am shot," and gradually sunk down, dying without uttering another word. Talcott approached him, as if to discover the effect of his shot, and appeared to be preparing for a second shot, but seeing him aying, stepped oacs, mourned uis norse, which he had hitched near, and rode away. The perpetrator of' this deed of blood was formerly. an-engineer, on kthe road, but had not been employed for-scveral months.

The Geology of Kansas Her Mineral Wealth.; The State Geologist, Professor Madge, gave a-very iBteresting lecture before the State Teachers' Association lastr Wednesday evening. We give below, a. few of the lead ing points presented in the address. In speaking of coal in -tho State, he said that we were on the outside of th.e coal region. Coal underlies the whole eastern portion of the State. He gave the theory of-finding eoaj, regions, and said thatbow far, West coal may bq found, is not yet ascertained Kilt lft IB (wrfain that it nvtorxAa tn Fnntimt- tan.

State Geo logically. Fort Scott is the lowest, portion" of the State, therefore he commenced work there, and as much 'below, as guerrillas would permit, him to go. It perhaps takes, hundreds of thousands of years to form ten feet of limestone. In that ten feet various forms of fossils are found, say fifty, but not over-three or four of themaro now to, scien tific men. Twenty-five miles below Fort Scott, a vein pi coal six leotjuicit, crops out, ana a-company is now cons.tructiDg mining works there. At Fort. Spott thcxyein i twenty-, five to thirty inches &jand. at' Mound City three feet., deep,. At Manhattan" the coal dip goeswonder the bed of the river.. To ascertain how deop4wo will have to, go. to find coal, and v how thick we willlind it, ,is an easy -matter. There ;is abundance of fuel all over the State for, generations to come. ' without going, very deep..,; In Leav enworth it is estimated .that a threo.fcct vein will be found at a depth of !&, feet, and .a six feet.veia,10f feet deeper. Capi talists are at work testing the, theory of, the geologist: they have bored and found coal just,about as science predicted. They aro now sinking a shaft eight feet Bquare, and three hundred feet deep.The cost of the shaft will be 93000, which will be finished in two months. A vein, one foot thick and one mile square will give 1,000,000 tone of coal. Under the city of Leavenworth thero are 36,000,000 of tons, which will last that city with its present x population for 2000 years. Kansas has coal enough to supply 15,000,000 of people for 10,000 years., salt. He said that in almost every .township in Southern Kansas there' were indications of salt. He had hot examined north, of the Kansas river. Plenty of it can be had within ten miles of Topeka to supply the State. It can bo found in tho largest quan tity northwest of Fort Riley. In tho. ex treme southwest rook salt is abundant blocks a foot square had been found. Where coal is found there is no gold or silver, and those metals do , not exist in Kansas. Lead is. sometimes, fiound in the vicinity of coal, but net in large quantities. We most not expect to find tin in the State cither. There" may be iron found j have not yet examined sufficient to Bay. .Be lieves there is plenty of coal oil -it has already been found to some extent. Investigation proves that elephants. once roamed here as buffaloes do now.. He asked all, persons to preserve bones that may bo 'found, evidently belonging to animals now tcx(iact. uProf. Mudge asked the teachers to say to the: people that the otate licologisfr was actively at work, and although ho had not visited every county in the State, and could not this yean, and making thorough exami nations as far as he went, which coarse he considered for the best interests of all. " After the close of the address, the Pro fessor answered' questions put to him by the audience. " He-'said that coal at Topeka was probably one hundred feet deeper; than at Leavenworth, and that the veins that-are being worked near the top of the ground are not of much account, and will soon run oit TojytJca Record. THAT SUPPRESSED LETTER ! CABBSY TASK DOW A.-PEO. Wo extract the' following from General Blunt's review of-Carnoy which is tho most 'terrible scathing civen nv man. and which is thus far unanswered by any cf tho hired editors: On the 12th, of May last, Gov. Carney, in exuberance of his patriotism, tenderod the President two regiments of one hundred days' men. The Goicrnor. was then ii Washington,' and as the President did no' accept the Governor's offer, immediately, he wrote the President again "on 'the'iollowrng. day as. follows : - il have to ask thsfcyox wilL either accept or reject the.pronpvition irmade in my com munication on tLe(i2ih inst. I hope how ever that you. will not; allow the lives, and homes of the citizens of Kansas to be jeop. ardized, by tho objection yoa suggested in our conversation, that "Senator Lane would probably oppose tho raising of the troops, or if raised would "oppose an appropriation for their pay, in conscquenco of the patroa ago thus conferred npon the Governor of the State." You will do me the favor to. reply at your earliest convenience. Yefy respectfully, your' ob't servant, 'ijBOMAS Carney, Governor of Kansas. As the Governor has seen fit to parade his letter to the President before the public, fairness on his- pari would' seem to have demanded that he sEouhT'havc published the President's reply. He having failed to do so, it is perhaps not yet too Iatb togivo to, the public. Tho President, thidkiog. that Carney was putting on a little too. much, stylo for a lan?ns Govornor, took him down, a peg in the following reply to the letter of May 13tb, m tho shape ot an endorsement upon the - 6amc. which tho (President caused to be returned to the Gov ernor, evidently considering it as. too im pertinent for any in orb respectful notice: " The-within letter is to.my mind bo ob viously intended as a page for a political record as to be .difficult to answer in a straighifortz&rd business-like y way. Tho merits of the Kansas people-neednot to bo argued to me.

What X did say was that he probably would on- poso it becauao yon, and bo were in a mood of each opposing whatever the, other, should propose. X did argue generally too, that in i my opinion, there is not a more tooiisu or demoralizing way oi conducting a punutai rivalry, than these fierce and, bitter strug gles for patronage. As to your demand that X will accept or reject your proposition to, furnish troops, made to me yesterday, X have to say I took tho proposition under advisement in good faith, as I believe you know ; that you can. iwuuaraw it it yoa wiso, out mat, wuiio it romains before me, I shall neither accept or reject it until, with referenco to the public interest, 1 shall, feci that I am ready.
