Mr. Emi-ry, n member of the House from Douglas county, has introduced a bill into the legislature to extend the boundaries of his county across the Kaw ovtr into this and Leavenworth counties, taking the rich bottom lands all to herself: Under any jcircum stances this rapacious greed would be inexcusable and ill-mannered. But when it is remembered that so far ns our county is concerned (and we be lieve the same of Leavenworth) we have been at the expense of keeping the whole district of country proposed to be taken from us during past yisars, and receiving no return from taxes on the land, and now that the railroad .is to run through this land nnd it soon become .taxable, Douglas steps in and says : "I will take possession of this valuable bottom and reap all the profit fioui its ownsi ship, and no 'thanks to you for Jiaving kept it at vour own expense so long!" Was ever a more shameless attempt at injustice perpetrated? But we do not believe there are men euough in the legislature to gire countenance to such a fraud. From Topekn down the Kaw should not be crossed by county lines. Northern and Southern. Kansas" are already namd, known and districted, nnd there is no need of making confu sion in the matter, even asi lo from the unblushing impudence of the attempt. Our neighbors of Ltwrence have the University, and itfis all right; but if to give them this has excited their greed, and if the securing the railroad has in flated them, we propose that they be taught som? decemy, and be mad lo respect the rights of others. If a little good fortune causes her peoplo to desire all, we think they should be taught that modesty is a virtue not to be ignored. But Douglas is ambitious. She wish es to extend her empire, become so strong as to control mal'ers of legisk tion, and then say to the smaller coun ties of the State: "Now do as wj want you to, or you shall have nothing !" c ui.c.ij upjiose mis measure on ev ery ground, of right, justice and oxpo-diehc-. Our County is none loo large now, and jat ata large poriit'OiJUt, railroad running through it, is coming .uW iuriei. 10 make our burdens of taxation lighter, we protest in the stern name of justice against any such wrong. We have had the burden to bear; now e bnouia reap the reward. He who would rob us of this just right, is "fit lor treason.-stratagems and ipoilb." and no oelter than a highwav robber. .- 1 1 . . vur neiguoor ot the Lawrence Trib une raises a mighty outcry over the "fraud" of electing a U. S. S.nator it is an awful thing in his eyes to defeat wis pet and patron-a mere personal matter but he has not a word to say about th fraud of attempting to wrong ' whole County to enrich himself and his people 1 Indeed, if we have the right understanding of the matter, he favors the unjust kcheme of plunder. aut we are confident the" outrage will not be permitted to win. Douglas County must not grasp all the Sie. She has beon accused of considering K-inas her own property, and of think" ing that what did not tend to her ag grandizement was not worth carina for And this act has an awful squint lhal way- She has secured the railroid to her door, and now she wishes to tnkc in the road entire and all the adjoining land for miles rob her neighbors of it to enrich herself. Avarice often overreaohes itself. Na poleon gia?ped for universal i moire but missed the grab and ended his days n a barren island in the midst of ocean. Indignation. Itisroally amusing to sec the fury ol Uie, oinrc-holders ! They have rais ed a fearful "tempest in a tea-pot," and seem absolutely lo believo that the whole State is boiling over with indig nation and wrath. It's all a mistake, gentlemen. Just keep cool. Don't "tar yoHr hair" aor "barn your ahirts." It only makes you look ridiculous MW The Seventh Regiment had a grand reception in Leavenworth on Sat urday. And they deserve it all. They have fought nobly. Many of their old comrades lie in the last sleen on thpi bloodied battle-fields of the South.- Their deeds are historic. Their hero ism has shed luster upon the arms im the State ; nnd they will be ion rem embered with pride by a grateful peo ple. Almost the cntite regiment have n-eiiiisicd.ns veterans. - ic flection of Senator. As our readers well know, we have i nol favored tlie electioi of n U. S. Senator this winter, because, under ail the circumstances, we did not reyird it rts the best policy. But we have never doubled the KririHtv of an election should it take place; for the precedents in other Slates, we believe, settle this question. We believe the time for an - ..lotion l.nn1.l ! .fefinilelr fixed br law, just a. the day of election for the people is fixed by st.Vule. This would I save all trouble and auanolirur over the matter. But the Legislature has seen fit to go into an election, and as a good citi zen, until the time for an election is de fined by law, we are bound to respect and submit to the action of that body, whose assembled wisdom ought lo out weigh our individual opinion, so as to cause us to yield the point, although our opini m itself might remain un changed. We have one objection lo the elec tion of Gov. Carney; we do not know where to find a person to fill his place in the gubernational office. As a Gov ernor he and all Kansas may bo proud of his record. It is one against which even the hatred and malice 'of bifer and iclc: ilets enemies can find no fault. This of itself is enough to stamp his f oflk-i'il acts whit praise. If he should make as good a Sen-.lor ns he" hns a Govi'inor, Knnsas ought to have him at Washington by all means. We hear a wonderful outcry about 'fraud' in thi matter. Well, who is dcfrnuJed ? The people ? To say that is hogging the question. A por tion of the proplc may prefer another man; but all cannot have tk!r first chok e; but thai does not make otit n case of fraud. Who is defrauded ? If it is the people they can easily make it known and there ts na need of the o! nutting nnU strengthening the ftictuls great howl being set up which wo hear!0'' 1'1C Uninn cause, when such action from certain quarieis not a bit of it. Ns necessary for the safety of the There are three newspapers of fotno !

One of them has an office received through Gen. Lane worth two thousand dollars a year, and next to nothing to do. Another is under obligation to Lane for an office worth over thirteen hundred dollars a year, aud nothing to do that we can hear of. The third has a good office, which pays well, but re quites souio libor. These three men, all receiving fat salaries from Gen. Line, or by his influence, are the very men who cry out 'fraud !' 'bought up!' 'swindle! mone !' and the like. There is a good old Bjok which. contains this first pull the beam out of thine own eye, and ihou shalt then see clearly lo take the woteoutof thy brother's ero!' Certainly the virtuous indignation of these men will not have much effect with the people. There is an adage that the man who has the stolen goods is the ouo who cries "Thief!" the loudest. And tho prcsont inslance looks very much as if he who -handled the largest 'pile' of the 'spoils' was the loudest to cry 'fraud !' We are pleased to see our friends of the press in luck; wo wish them all well; bat they -should not denounce every one who will not consent that they shall have all that remains and ami aaautun that may come Iicreaftcr. Our own opinions nre'unbought. Wre have no money from Gov. Carney, and no 82,000 officcsfrora Gen. Lane, and we would nol giro a fig for any man's opinion who was bought up.eithcr with cash in hand or a fat effier not a fig. They might howl until doomsday, and the howling would have no weight with us; because they are paid lo do it. Like the hired mourners at an oriental fun eral, who care nothing at all for the dead, but lament for pay, theso men, having no reel causo of complaint, cry u.e toudcr lo get up an appearanco 0f inuignalion. But their wailing is just as heartless -is are tht- cries of the hired mourner at a pagan funeral. It is all "sound and fury." Will the Election Stand ? Ct rlaiuly it will. A franchise is not annulable. There is not a precedent 'ln l,,e st"7 of tho Republic where nu cieciion nns ocen set nsido. Until a time is fixed by law, any tim is legal for an election. Besides, tho election ought to be fixed the year ptevious, so as to give the Senalor elect timo to pre pro for his duties.

Like a barrel of molasses fermenting, it oozed out of itself. There is not a man in Kansas or oul of it, who h s ever heard Gen. Line in a private caucus, that does not knoie ho is always for trickery. He delights in gaining a point by stratagem lie seems to think no victory is complete unless it has been gained by some kind of in trigue. Brought up in the lap of the most profligate portion of the old Dem ocratic party, he imbibed all its bad features, its low cunning, its corrupting practices, and, unfortunately, took in none of its virtues unless it be that of dogged persevernnce. Now these are facts facts that his friends know know best of any, for j they have been familiar with them. For men in the interests of such an individ ual to cry out 'fiaud' against any one, is like a harlot preaching virtue. Its insincerity is only equalled by its im pudence. It is Sitan turned teacher of righicousness. But beneath the counterfeit angel's garb, the cloven foot projects its direful length, uncovered by a scrap to hide its base deformity. Union leagues Theso were organized for the purpose Utiluted. The moving motive for their organization was a noblo one the ob ject the best that could engage tho time, talent and labors of a patriot, except he were in tht army. But when Union Leagues, forgetful of the great object for which they wero called into being, become mere political machines, aud by dabbling ia party politics and personal squabbles, thus becoming disunion instead of Union Leagues, they will loso their influence and be left lo die the death of an unfaith ful servant by the people. We see by the ,Cnnr,-.,i:,T ' ' -ti-L uflA-avenworth has mix ed into the SenatorHl contest, and after denouncing the legislature, has expelled oil ils members who voted for the joint convention Iy simple resolution, without a written charge or any kind of a hearing ! e venture to say that the reign of "liorder Kuffiamsm" in its palmiest days presents no case which will more than parallel this ! Who ever heard tell of such a thing? Common decmcy, leaving justice, precedent, courtesv and right out of liew, would have indicated a less hasty course and a fair trial 1 But such was nol the caso. The thing over-rcache itself. The bitterness of spirit shows malice and hatred, and a lack of eveiy element of Union. What is a Union League worth when it sows the seeds of discord, nnd becomes a mere political club for put ting this m-.n up and pulling that one down? Its noblo object is lost, and it i useful no longer. P. S.

A question of no small moment has been recently deciJed by the Supreme Court of Massachusetts, defining the meaning of the teim specie. The case was this : A gave B a note payable in specie. At maturity B. demands gold nnd sil ver. A refuses to pay in coin. B sues to recover in gold or silver. The case conies before the Supreme Court.which says ; "A judgment in a suit upon a no'e must be rendered for a certain slim of money, expressed in dollars ami cenls Execution must issue for this sum, with costs; nnd the amount is to be collected. If we were to add to the amount of the note nnd interest a further sum for ex ample, 100 as a piemium on specie the execu'ion would still be collectable in money. If the officer could seize a sufficient amount of gold and silver to pay the execution and costs, he would pay to the plaintiff the amount of his j debt. It the uctenuant s goods stiouiu be sold at auction on execution, and the putchasers should pay in specie, the same result would follow. If land sho'd be set off on execution, ils value may be so changed by the condition of the currency as (o affect the in'erests of the parties materially. It may be that the judgment will remain unsatisfied till gold shall, in merchendise, sink be low par. This would again affect the interests of the parties and the value of the judgment. The weekly fluctua tions of the gold maikel are constantly operating in the same wav. But theso are matters which are beyond the teach of courts of law. They involve values, and sometimes equities which no iudi- v. ' J ' cial tribunal can adjust or regulate. AH A. . . i - . that courts can do is to treat as money ,, . i- i I ... r .i it -. i that which tho statutes of the United c. . i ii ,iii .t States, legally enacted, declare lobe It will b observed that the Court decides that a governed n23 n,e pow. er lo sav wl.at slinll he rnnnor nml flinf what it cmcts to be money is money. This is worthy of noie. If the wording of the note hud been in gold or silver, insteal of specie, it would hardly havo .r.ade a difference in the decision The Vote. Gov.
