THE KANS AS HERALD,

FLENNEKEN, of the sixteenth election , district, (embracing Leavanworth and Silt-Creek) as a candidate for Delegate to Con gress for Kansas Territory, at the approaching - election on the 29th Inst. . Her. Mr. St he, Presbyterian clergy- -man, of Weston, Mo. delivered quite an interesting discourse on Sunday, at the Lea venworth House, in this place tojx very at tentive audience. Weather awd Riveb. The weather has again become very mild and pleasant, and the river is still navigated by Boats of the largest class. . Emigrants. The Australia, on her re cent trip up, brought one hundred and twenty-five emigrants from Massachusetts and the New England States.' Many of them had families, who got off at Kansas city, and Parkville, and other points below. They are destined for the Wakarusa valley on the Kansas river. , Chief Justice of Ilansas, Samuel D. Lecomfte, of Baltimore, Md., has been appointed chief Justice of Kansas Ter., in place of Madison Brown, of Md. resigned. Judge Lecompte, is spo ken of at home asenminently fitted for the position assigned him, and as a distinguish ed member of the Bar, of ability, talents and experience in liis profession. Ilassacrcc on Platte River. Mr. Udolphus Wolfe, who recently re turned from a trip on the Plains, gives us the following reliable information: His party consisted of eight men, who were on their way to Fort Laramie, and while encamped on the bank of the South riatte river, on the 25th of October last, the Indians fired upon them, killing one of their men, they immediately retreated to their vaggons,and as the Indians approach ed, about fifteen in number, the whites fired upon them, killing three or four, the re mainder of them rallied with a yell, and as they rushed on, three or four more killed, and the party of whites then rushed out up on the Indians, and a desperate conflict for a fewmoments ensued, in a hand to hand fight, during which tune Mr. Wolfe got wounded in the ankle; ihe Indians fled, across the river. Four of the whites and eight of the In dians were killed. At a meeting of the citizens of Kansas Territory and others at Leavenworth on the 15th of Nov. 1854. On motion of Maj. Jesse Morin, Capt: L. J. Eastin was call ed to the Chair, and It. R. Rees, selected as Secretary. Maj, J. Morin explained the object of the meeting to be in obedience to a call to elect a candidate for a Delegate to Con gress from this Territory, and on his mo tion it was Resolved, That this meeting will not make a nomination. On motion of R. R. Rees it was Re solved that the Kansas Herald and Kansas Pioneer be requested to publish the pro ceedings of this meeting. On motion of Dr. Wilson the meeting adjourned. L. J. EASTIN, Pres't. R. R. Rees, Sec'y Reported Aruest. The Independence Dispatch has given eurrency to a report, that Maj. Ogden, and others of the military of ficers at Fort Learenworthj are now under arrest, and then gives a conflicting repor after which the editor states he is unable to decide which is correct. We can tell the editor no such arrest has been made or even attempted to be made. It is not the first time that false reports started by Madame Rumo", with her ten thousand lieing tongues have found their way into some of the public prints in relation to the gentlemen alluded to. Fames J Burns. James N. Burns announced by hi? friends dur ing his absence at St. Louis, as a Democratic Candidate for Delegate from Kansas Territory; in the Congress of the (Jnited States, finding-that he cannot make a canvass on the Platform con templated by those friends, respectively and gratefullv withdraws his name as a candidate. deferentially yielding his own views to those of tne squatters or Kansas. Leavenworth, K. T; Nov. 14, 1854.' ?.. TO THE QUALIFIED VOTERS OF KANSAS TERRITORY. In view of tbd election to he held in the Territory on the 20th instant, for Delegate to the House of Representatives of the Uni ted States, the undersigned, a Committee of the numerous friends of the Hon. ROB 'ERT P. FLENNEKEN offer him as a Candidate for the said office and announce fiome'of the reasons why, w their opinion, lie should be supported, ,-" ,' ',--'" citizen of Fayette County, in the State icf Pennsylvania, where he has been for ma ny jfears a consistent, sound, and National Demdraat-. citizen of the highest moral and social standing, and & lawyer of distin guished reputation and successful practice He was formerly a member of the .Legisla ture cf .Pfiiuisylvawa, 1 and,-trnder the ap pointnxeatf'ftof the late President Polk, a Representative of the United States at the Court of Denmark, where he attained much reputation by the ability and fidelity with which he discharged his duties. He has settled in the Territory with the intention of maVrng it his future permanent ,resi dence, and his family are preparing to fol low him. His general intelligence his sound and reliable prudence and good sense -his clear and comprehensive intellect -his legal knowledge his general and favorable ac quaintance with the members of Congress and the public men attached to the Nation al Administration, give us the surest guar ranty that he will make a most useful, ef ficient, and valuable Delegate,' in whose hands the important interests of the Terri tory will be well taken care of, and to whom we can confidently look for procuring the appropriations for Military Roads and Bridges, Public Buildings, Geological Sur vey, the modification of Indian Treaties, and for adjusting the many Post Routes and Post Offices throughout' the'Territory. Some persons in the Territory, we re gret to say, are making an enort to intro duce into this election the question of free and slave labor, and to array the advocates of each against each other, and in favor of different candidates. We cannot see the necessity or propriety of agitating this ques tion at this time. . A Delegate in Congress will have no duties to perform connected with it in any way, and should bo elected only with an eye to his value, efficiency, and influence in procuring the legislation which we so much need to advance the prosperity and improvement of the Territo ry. The man who can best do this, should be elected without reference to his views on other question's. Mr. F. does not run as a candidate upon this issue, and we do not place him before the people on that ground. The ' weakness of the Territory requires that all citizens upon both sides of that ques tion should stand side by side, and work in harmony, concert and good feeling, to. ad vance the progress of our Territory, with the greatest possible rapidity. It will be time enough to make issue upon the ques tion of slavery, when it shall come up for decision; and it would inflict a deep inju ry upon our interests to elect a Delegate to Congress upon this issue, no matter which party should succeed, as it would immedi ately array against him the members ox CoDgress who should differ in opinion from the successful party whereas if our Dele gate is elected without raising the question, we shall not excite in Congress the oppo sition of the other party, and it will be com paratively easy to obtain what the wants of the Territory require. We may add that tho best evidence of our sincerity is, that we ourselves are divi ded in opinion upon the question some of us being anti-slavery men and some pro- slavery men, whilst we are, nevertheless, united in the support of Mr. F. We be ieve him to be the man whom the Territo ry needs for the officethe man who can best advance its interests at W'ashington- and, from all the information we can re ceive, the man who will be strongest before the people at the polls, and whom the ma jority of them desire, and we therefore re commend him for your support.

' - - ' ; -i- ' ; We and -do severally swear that we will perform our duties as' Judges of the election, to be held this day in tne District, of the Territory of Kansas, to the best of our judgment and ability; that we will keep a true, correct and faithful record or list of per sons who shall vote at said election, that we will poll no ticket from any person who is not an ac tual bona fide resident and inhabitant of said Territory on the day of . election and whom we shall not honestUy believe to be a qualified voter according to the provisions of the Act. of Con gress organizing said Territory thafc; we ; wiil reject the,-votes of all and every ncHj-resident who we shall believe has come into the .Territory for the mere purpose of voting--that in all cases wnerje we are will require " oath or bthe true and faithful return to the Governor of said Territory bf 'the votes which shall be polled. -i The poll will be opened for the reception" of yotes between eight and ten o'clock;" A.

The remaining copies of oath list of voters tally list and return . will be.taken by one of the Judges, who will deliver the same in pesonto the Governor, on or before Monday, the 4th day cf December next, at his office at the house of Thos. Johnson in - the first District. - . - . - . , , : " The Judges . of election . will be sworn by a Judge or Justice of the Peace, or in the absence of such ofiicer, they may be sworn by one of their number, who shall in his turn be sworn by one of those thus qualified, noting at the foot of the oath by whom it is administered.'. And - the several Judges of election, are by these presents invested with full power and -authority to ad minister the oath to each - other, and to voters and others, touching the right of any person to vote, under all the pains and penalties of perju ry attaching to oaths administered by Judicial officers, . If one or more of the Judges appointed should fail to attend or refuse to serve their places may be supplied by the voters on the ground at nine o'clock A. M- and vacancies occuring in the board thereafter, may be filled by the remaining Judges. ... Qualification of Voters. " By the Territorial Bill it isprovided as ' fol lows: ; .... . That every free white male inhabitant above the age of Twenty-one years, who shall be an actual resident of saiA Territory, and shall pos sess the qualifications hereinafter prescribed, shall be entitled to vote at the first election; Prjovidedy That the ; right of suffrage and of holding office, shall be exercised only by citi zens of the United States and those who shall have declared on oath -their intention to become such, and shall have .taken an oath to support the, Constitution of the United States and the provisions of this act; And Provided further-, That no Officer. Soldier, Seaman or Marine, or other person in the Army or Navy of the Uni ted States, or. attached to troops m the service of the United States, shall be allowed to vote or hold office in said Territory, by reason of being on service therein." .The requisites of age and color are easily un derstood. That of residence is well defined in the law, and means the actual dwelling or inhabiting in the Territory, to the exclusion of any other present domicil or home coupled with the pres ent bona fide intention of permanently remaining for the same purpose. . ; - When a voter is not a native of the- U. S. the proof of his right to vote must be the production of his certificate of naturalization ; or of his de claration of intention under the seal of the court, and the want of it cannot be supplied by his oath. In case he has onlv declared his intention to become a citizen he must thence sworn, by the Judges or a Justice bf the Peace, to support the constitution of the U. States and the provisions of the "act of Congress approved Mav 30, 1854, to organize the Territories of Nebraska and Kan sas." When this latter oath is administered to a voter, the word "oath" should be marked oppo site his name on the list. The meaning of the last proviso, relative to the army and navy is, that the persons disignated in it. shall not vote if their presence in the Ter ritory is referrible only to - the 'performance of their duties, and the obedience or orders. me Officer or Soldier who would vote, must have a residence here (the meaning of which is already explained) irrespective and independent ox his presence here under orders. It is perhaps unnecessary to say that every vo ter can voie omy in uis uwu district. Contested Election. In case any person or persons shall dispute the fairness or correctness of the Return of any elec tion district, they shall make . a .written state ment directed to the Governor and setting forth the specific causes of complaint, or errors in the conducting or returning of the election in said District, signed by not less than .. ten qualified voters of the Territory and with an affidavit of one or more qualified voters to the truth of the facts therein stated ; and the said complaint and affidavit shall be presented to the Governor on or .before the Fourth day of December next, when the proper proceedings will be taken to hear and decide such complaint.
