Shannon and the Kansas Disturbance. it o' to A correspodtnt of the N...Y4 Times has had an interview with Govarsor Shannon, of which he gives tho following arcoint: On learning the fact of Baansoii's res- rue, as detailed to him by the rro-SlaVpry uietrnu enls concerned in his arrest, he. had directed the Sheriff (Jones) to call out a font for the purpose of capturing all concerned in the rescue, and retukinir the fugitive: In the meuntiine, the - most ex aggerated statements had pone through the Country, and all Missouri was lcing arous- ed Uf the mail and teletraph and pri vale hand, stories the niot intiiniaiuMo in tneir clmncter had flown from tnwn to town, and hundreds had prepared to pass ever the border lor, tho purpose of protoc ting Fro-Sslavery people in tho (Territory, tupposeu to be in danger, and tuking vsn peance for iiiioginary ir.juries already in- miaou, iiiese volunteers natt olierea their services to the Sheriff, and been accepted; he being empowered to call out any maa found within his county. At the some tune, the Governor fearing that this force would be uncontrolable ' in their excitement, by any means within Jhis power, naa telegraphed the president for authority to call out the military stationed at Fort Lsaveuworth, and has to-duy re ceived full power to do so. He 1ms accor dingly issued orders to Col. Sumner, the Commandant, to meet him to-morrow at the Dcluware Ferry, on the Kanzas River, some fourteen miles above here, with the whole force under his command, (some seven hundred men as I was to dav in formed by Capt. Lyon,) for the purpose of proceeding at o'nee to Lawrence, with the double object of bringing that refractory town (as he supposed) to terms, and f protecting it against the fury ol tho force gathering near it under the command of ths Sheriff. In all this, Gov. Shannon speaks most fairly, and but in one point do I appre hend serious danger of a collision. The men he seeks are not in Lawrence, and no objection will bo made to any search hemay cause to be instituted lor lliem there. But so profoundly has he misunderstood the character of the Squatters of Kanzits, the wrongs and insults they have, sus tained and the nuturo of tha Free State movement;. unJ so unfortunately has he been situated in the midst of Pro-Slavery iiiflueaces, for getting an impartial account of fuels, that ; he entertains tlia idea thnt the Territory is aatuully in a state uf jctivc in?irrtrlian. . lie btia been niado te' believe that the men of Luwi em e ar3 voluntary traitors to the Constitution mid country: and, laboring under this nhmuing mistake, ho has de termined to demand of them, and sustain the demand by physicul force, thr surrender of the Sharp's rt'es sent than from ths East.

More parsons die, proportionate ly, among those engaged ill agriculture than among those engaged in trade and mechan ical arts; whith may arise from the farmers telling the truth about thtir dead, while the city people conceal theirs.
