On Friday of last week and Monday nigld of this week.eome thirteen of the settlers on the Reserve were kidnapped by the soldiers. We beliero that is the term to use, for they were seized with out any show of authority, we are told by tjiose who were known to the facts. The soldiers claim to be acting under ' ordersYrom Gen. Mitchell; but Mitchell . has issued a general order forbidding lh j soldiers arrest any ono,excepl when "called upon by the ciyil authorities; and that if any change is made in this or der, due notice of such -change will be given. No euch notice has been pub lished, and the order is still in full force. Is Gen. Mitchell a man or a thingl We ask for infoi nation. If he is a man he will see that his orders are obeyed, if he is a thing be will stultify himself.nnd "belie his own words. . We have said before, and we repeat it now, that nothing equal to this out- age was -ever perpetrated'in civilized a societybf which history makes any re--& cord. We againstate the case, for we ' -are constantly having new readers of our paper, who may not be thorough-.- ly posted as to the 'infamy and inhu manity -of this wicked&war upon an in ? no cent and outraged people. It is this: The settlers are on the Reserve lands. ' '. They-hare claims which they wish to . jjarcbase, andjire only waiting to get a 0 , , " "title ta tbe land or security for a title, " 'ilk f "Vjsjt when theyrw.ill at pnee purchase. Many v - of them bare tbemoney to pay down for the land.and are and have been anxi- out to purchase for three years past. All-they want is the assurance tliat if they pay the Railroad Company their . mkey, they will not lose M- They have the right to this assurance. They would be fools to inrests their fund without - -some guarantee that it was not thrown away. . ji t But the' Company will not consent to - . -i mi :n r 'give -any sucn assurance. Aiiqy mu not giveany documentary proof that V they hare eret paid one cent interest on "IhUrfcond, or tnkeu nny steps neces sary to secure a title to the lands in question. Tbey -prodnce'no receipts from the .Interior Department to show , th.it" they have.paid the interest they are required to pay before they can even have a shadow of title to the lands. On the coatrery, it is reported as from the Interior Department that tbey have not paid the interest due, and hence, under . me provision oi me treaty, nave jotjii ed all right to a claiii upon the lands. Thus any shadow of a title on their part is a matter of doubt, and they re- . fuse to clear up tbe doubt, when they could do it in Jive-minutes "by producing their receipts; or by an official state ment from the Interior Department. 1'ul they are endeavoring to -compel the settlers to buy the land without a tittle or "any security for one; and when they re fuse to be thus sold out, have them arrest ed by the military, 'This we believe to be a true and un varnished statement of the farts in the .(- v?e.ar In -error, wc are desirous IT bo corrected, as we have told the Conmanv from the beginning. -" s " , Ye Male further: Numbers of the r rtililers htne gone to the Agents of the Co'mpany and offered to pay for their hind on tho terms- proposed, if the Aleuts would simply give them a re- ccipl that the money was paid on the land foirards its purchase. The Agents re fused vn the ground that it would lay them liable to a prosecution for obtaining money under false fketenses 1 These .facts can be sustauiiated in any court of justice. Does anybody blinio the set lleis for icfusin ' to tiusl such men ? JJut .what follows? Because these MSttleis. will not pay their, money to these men, who even refuse to receipt for it; they are hynled down like wild beasts? seized by. a hired soldiery, arid lurried off" to prisons. Their houses are, Id some instances, torn down or uurooffad, their families exposed to the uUtilcss storms, their goods thrown out" .vt "doors, end they and their families threatened with still further violence. Wa evtr'such inhumanity perpetrated .1 ore ?" This is the Border-Ruffianism "of ; 1856 renewed, and Ssjb. Denman and . Bob Mitchell, said to be of the Ruffian pariyMn '56. are the men who conduct ihi's iriily5 fi6nj!"nh busijiMs; but what is woref Government, either knowjngly ., o- unwittingly, ijlvcs it sanction to the rk! - mi Mon la 7 night kidntnwed btthe sol fiTjni ihuv place to ailioi ity watTpnHuc- 'tfieiil. One or these men had served his country in the war against rebellion. A Bother, taken away at the same time.had sorved three years, part or all the time as a lieutenant, to secure a government to protect him, and 1 this is the protection he gets. He could risk his life to save the Government, and that Government turns round and puts its foot upon him ! O shame ! 0 Libert', where art thou fled ? Some of the men captured have been before released by the courts. The constitution and lams expressly forbid putting a man in jeopaidy a second lime for the same offense. But what are constitutions and laws to a lawless body of men ? To show the ruffianism of the pro ceedings of tbe Company and its agents, we slate one case, the facts of which can be verified. Just before the torna do on the 24th of May, the soldiers. under the orders or diiection of Sam. Denman, went to the house of Mr. Wm. McKey, (he has served his coun try in the recent war) and as the threat ening storm came down, threw off the roof, set the furniture or a part of it out of doors, and left the mother and children exposed to the fury of the storm, and without a shelter. Every thing about the house was flooded with water and not a dry thread to put over them, or a dry spot to lay upon that nigtii i This is but one specimen of this villainy. And this is the same Sam Denman some of our exchanges have published as the friend cf the settlers ! It is for exposing these acts for there are many of them similar to the one given we aie denounced by a hireling press 1 Thank God we are not on the side of this Border-Ruffianism, and re gard it as worthy of all praise that we have had evil spoken of us falsely for advocating the right. May Heaven prosper the right and blot out the f . is. ouicc the loreiroinjr was in type, Mr. Biermau and Lieut. Rode baugh made their appearance in our office. They had been kept out on the prairie by the soldiers for three days, and furnished with, almost nothing to eat. But for the kindness of the peo ple in the vicinity they would have suffered severely from hunger ! This is proof that they were kidnapped They were released. What new chap ter in this vilainy next ! Still later we learn that those taken on Friday were released at Leaven worth, after being kept some six day6 from home ! Leavenworth Sold ! The citizens of Leavenworth are jubillant over their railroad prospects. We hope they will not be disappointed; but we think they are sold.' ' Mayor Carney, with an honest purpose and J the duty of a faithful public servant in view, lias made a contract with Mr. Perry, President of" the U. P. R. Co. I On the part of the Mayor this was in good faith, on the part of the other, we believe honestly.it is a swindle. All who have read this paper, know that we have been a constant and firm friend of the railroad interests of Leaven worth from the beginning, and we can speak the more freely, knowing that our remarks cannot possibly be miscon strued into unfriendliness, either to Leavenworth or Mayor Carney. The stipulations of "e contract are briefly, that Leavenworth shall furnish the Railroad Company bonds to the amount of 8250,001) to construct the road from that city to Lawrence, and ill at the Company shall build the road and make over its right hereafter to be acquired by a certain treaty, to the Leavenwoith Company. (Our paper containing the contract did not come to hand.and we did not see it.bul gath J er (wm other sources the nature of Ihe contract, which we think is as stated.) Now, friends of Leavenworth, uote two or three things. You are to gel the land, if a certain pending treaty is consummated. But look in lite columns of your own papers, Hnd you will see thai this same Railroad Company has advertised to sell this same land toother patties, and on this first of July an office is to be opened in Lyrene for (his very purpose ! A portion of this land has beca already sold by die Com pany aud the bonds given read that the Company sell all the right they now have or may hereafter acquire in and to the said land. That cuts off your treaty, don'tit? Again. The Company is evinciog its intention to defraud you, if. compelling tho settlers to purchase this land'under pals of arrest or dispossession by the soldiers. Are they swindling you ? or the settlers ? or both T Fartherm'orewe have bees told (and though itjs only a rumor tt u worthy of youtteutiou) that one reason why the.Cosspany are so determined to cone pel settlers to bay the land under the present claim of the Company to a right thereto,, that they may carry this very fact up to Washington as an argnj nien't to defeat the pending treaty aud cafj - - Ltavemeorth out the plea being thrt the settlers already have vested rights in the land, and therefore it would be un just to hand them over to another Com pany ! Hence.a new treaty will be asked for, cutting off your Company, and placing the whole thing in the hands of the St. Louis Company in a shape to suit them. Still further: This Company bave mortgaged all their right and title in the lands in question, their road, rolling stock, depots etc to other parlies for twelve millions nine hundred and sixty thousand dollars. Do they propose to lift that mortgage before they make over the Ian 1 to Leavenworth ? Look into these matters. See what sort of a show you have. If the Com pany aie designing to swindle you con cerning the land, they will swindle you on any oilier point. Go to the Interior Department, and see what they have done under the present treaty; whether they have taken any steps to perfect their title to the land or not, for if they have, the mortgage will cut you off under the proposed treaty. If they have not taking any ateps, or all ihe necessary steps, to perfect their title under the existing treaty, then they are swindling the settlers on those lands by pretending to sell the same to them; and if they will swindle the settlers they will swindle you. We honestly believe that tbe con tract, so far as the land is concerned, is worth less than the white paper upon which ii is written; and as a true friend of your interests, we earnestly advise you to "look well before you leap." You say that work has already been commenced on the road. Is it the first time a railroad company has commenc ed work at Leavenworth. Three years ago, did you not expect before this time to hare heard the whistle of the steam engine at your doors as was promised-? You then said so. Have not all the movements of the company been to dicker you out of money ? As we said before so we repeat. Make your contracts, but pay not a cent until the wort is done. Ho is a bad paymas ter who pays in advance especially to a railroad company. Honest, Very! and Courteous. The Lawrence Journal and Topeka Record have published false statements in reference to the position we occupy .towards the settlers on the Rescrve.and when we have stated the facts, they have refused to correct their misrepre sentations. It is a universal rule among all civilized editors to treat each other in this-respect with the common court esies of genteel society; but the conduc tors of the papers named have placed themselves beyond the pale of good breeding by their action in this mailer. Of the Journal we expected better things. Under its former proprietors i. was ably and courteously conducted. Possibly something is due the present publishers on the ground of inexperi ence; at least we are willing to give them the benefit of such a supposition, and hope that they will see their oilier wiso inexcasable error, and make the amende duo themselves as gentlemen, J as well as us. We did not expect muchfrom the Record. A man that will take over twelve hundred dollars a year from the government in its lime of need, for nothing, is made of exactly the stuff to slander his neighbor. If be will rob his countiy, lie will rob another of char acter if he can. We have corrected the misrepresen tations of the papers named. The set tlers will all verify our statements. If the editors of those journals have any honor, a disposition to deal fairly, or the first principles of good breeding, they will give their readers the privil ege of hearing both sides. We have published all' we could get in defense of the railroad company, audi have opened our co!umusrw to them to disprove our statements if they wore not correct, or to give any light on the subject of the Reserve lands. They have failed to do either tho one or the other proof positive that they cannot answer our arguments, disprove our statements, or defend their actica in the premises but 'instead have used tbe columns of such .papers as would hire themselves to so dishonorable a proceeding, to denounce us personally because we have defended the rights of the settlers, as if denouncing us would clear themselvet.! And vou.centlemen of the Journal and Record, bave given yourselves and your papers to (bis very honorable, dignified and geutlcmanly proceeding! Personally we do not care what course these editors pursue, and these remarks are only made to show what they ere. That is quite enough for honest men ev erywhere. The new constitution has been 1 adopted in Missouri by from two to three thousand majority. C7 Destructive fires have occurred in Saratoga, H . Y., and Rolla, Mo. tin- ingtbepast few days. Shall IheyHto It! The settlers on thaVReserve have been asking for an investigation into their ease, by the proper authorities.- Shall they hare it? If ouMJelegation in Congress, do their duty they will. By a united effort they could obtain the order in half an hour. Many of these aet'.lers votod for Gov. Crawford and Mr. Clarke last fall and supported Mr. Lane. Will these men now see that their wronirs are rishted? Or, if they have no rights, will tbey see that the matter is properly investigated.and decided, that tbe settlers may know whether they are at the mercy of a soul less corporation or not? In behalf of the settlers, we again demand that this matter be investigated, and we call up on our Senator, Merilber of Congress, and the Governor to ee to it.thal whole matter has a (borough investigation and airing, that the truth in the premises may be established, and the rights of all concerned airly established and conf firmed. ' '- 4 If the functunaries named refuse or neglect to do' this, they are recreant to duty.- It should be the boast of our county, that the humblest citizen can be .heard and have bis wrongs redress ed. The Elerenth Regiment. By advices from Fort Laramie of the lGlh of Juno, we learn that there was intense feeling among the boys of the Eleventh in consequence of the efforts of Gen. Connor to prevent the muster ing out of the regiment, because he wishes to use the men in an Indian expedition he is fitting out. The boy j are indignant that they must be kept from their homes merely to aid an aspiring officer to gain a name on their bravery and sufferings. They think they should be treated a all oth er soldiers are under the orders of the Sec. of War for mustering out. At one time their indignation almost reach ed the point of insubordinaiion; bul they look the best course, and resolved to wail as patiently as possible for tbe hour of deliverance. They do not know now when they will get home. Grass is very scaree owing to the rav ages of the immmeuse number of gaass- hoppers infesting the plains. In ten miles square there was not enough to keep the stock two weeks. The weather bad been hot but on the evening of tho 14ib there was a sudden change, making a tight tent aad fire nocaitary to comfort. Health of the regiment good. Horses in bad order. - Ml I IM High Waters. All over the west the streams have been unusually high during the month of June. Such immense frehets have not been known, over so great an ex tent of country, since 1858. Iu this county the Grasshopper creek has been up and booming on a tegular 'high,' a full-breasted 'bust,' and has done no little damage by overflowing the bottom lands along its course. Whole fields of grain etc. have been submerged, snd in some-instances al most or quite destroyed. The Kaw river has also been up to high water mark, and given a taste of its prowess when on a 'bondor.' It can rain out here when it gels started 'for suie.' There appears to bo no proipect of a drouth in Kansas this year. It strikes us that the editor of the Council Grove Press should remove to Missouri, as his chief aim appears to bo to build up the interests of that State rather than those of Kansas He stems to hate sold out to Kansas Ciiy, and lauds that burg quite extensively, at the same time disparaging Leaven worth.
