Governor of the Territory of Kansas, was born in Easton, Northampton county, Pennsylvania, on the 12th day of July, 1807..

The pa rents of Governor Reeder both attained an advanced age, having lived till, within a few years past.; T . The education of Mr. Reeder. was com- tti nil foil of ootItt atra in tlio "lacQirnl ( ' if scn00 ev' Bishop, at Easton, . where he continued for scvera years.

At the time that Mr. Reeder com menced his career as a lawyer, the North ampton County Bar was the ablest in the State. The learning and legal ability of its members, however, were to him no dis couragement, and: he entered the, field with vjse champions of jimspruddnce, not doubt- ing, that success was to be achieved by per ' severing industry, severe sttidy; and unre mitting application to the duties of his pro fession. The .reputation and well-earned popularity of the older pralctitipnefs, by , y whom the business of the county was in a measure monopo'zea,wr some time retara ed his ad-.Tincement ; butre lonsr the ;oung lawyer attracted attention and was mpioyeu in several, cases olr ircpoxtance , ch soon made known tlie Vesourees. of miruL Thn X the legal profession was then "opened to him, t nnd the annhcation of his varied attainments, i he has steadily advanced tothe r eccspj?, dh9l of. the. first; .. ,4';m iZL-:ri' -Jf -r - f1. he naa a large arid lucrative business which increased rrth each year's continuance, in the piofes?

The high, place which he holds in the esteem of hil fellow-citizens of the State from whence he comes, is based upon a character for rare moral and 'politi cal integrity; and we safely c venture the. prediction that fie will soon wintjje respect and confidence of those who may-Tje. called around, him . iriV tlxe administration of the Territorial government, by; his. urbanity and courtefius deportment. Possessed . of in- omi table couragej and "independence 'of character, he will be found at all times ful ly equal to any emergencies that may arise umexuie clearness, comprenensiyei' ess, astutenessi and freedom from preju- ice, whicli so peculiarly characterize his mind, furnish a sure and safe guarantee; to the inHaljitants of . Kansas that, in all meas ures of Territorial jpolity, the best . interests of the whole" people will be sought for and diligently subserved. , His untiring, activity, his powers of physical endurance, and his ceaslessand devoted attention to all the du- ties oflife, give abundant indication thatf not even in the most minute details of those duties which his new position will devolve upon him, will he be found wanting or. neg lectful. It rarely happens that all the qual ities which so peculiarly distinguish Gov ernor Reeder are found; combined in any one individual, and with all these prestiges of success we may confidently expect in the new Territory a healthy and vigorous or ganization and administration of its affairs, and the laying of a broad and permanent foundation, upon wHcfcis so soon and sure ly to.be erertc4laesuperitructure of the "State of JKansas.1 v l - '. A Short Cliapter on Politics, suit yv :atlo "to tlie Season. ft . ;P,eople whovlet politics alone live tlie hap piest and are most . respected. Thousands )f -young men are ruined every year by en tering into the political scrambles : of the timcs There is hardly one' instance in ten thousand, in which the efforts to attain political distinction and honorable fame,are crowned with success. And even if at first ambition is gratified, a failure is almost sure to follow attempts to gain higher eminence, and the man sinks finally to the character of a driveling party hack. Nor is this all. The excitement and corruption growing out of the demoralizing electioneering of the day, blunt the conscience, induce vicious indulgences, and ruin character. .. And if the effect is not to brutalize by intemper ance; it is manifested in another form per haps less poisonous to the physical, though full as destructive to the moral man,' in kna vish practices, in deceptive arts, -in hypo critical pretences, and in unscrupulous acts. We have had an opportunity of seeing much of politics in our day. We therefore feel qualified to give advice on the subject. And we say to all id the sincerity of hones conviction f if you wish to preserve a "clear conscience, an r Unspotted character, an irre proachable reputation among your , fellowr men - if you. wod preserve self-respect and enjoy the respect of ott ci, let alone t . : ' c i:: i ' r x make it a business. .
