-FRIDAY DECEMBER 1, 1854. Messrs. Tatt & Baker, -of. Weston, intend patting light draught boat in the Kansas River, early next spring.; It will pay. 'Jftfi3TMr. Wh. CauME,-is the traveling Agent for the Kansas Herald in Upper or North Western . Missouri. We hope our friends in hat section will lend him a help- j tag hand in extending our circulation. JlgCnZ8.-Agents wanted to procure subscribers. for the Kansas Herald. A lib eral discount on the -terms of subscription will be made. Postmasters everywhere cure requested to act as ageLt3, obtain sub scribers, collect the money and receipt. Daily Mail.- We have now a daily mail from. Weston to Tort Leavenworth. As this arrangement has lately gone into operation, we hope for an improvement up on our old mail facilities. Though there was a contract for a daily mail from Kansas, Mo. to the Fort, yet for a time it was a great annoyance, for it served to heighten our expectations to cause a disappointment. No mail to day was the common news from our worthy post master. Frequently the on ly way any mail matter was obtained, Maj. Ogden, the Qr. Master, would send to Weston and bring it over. But now we hope for the better. The Stage now comes and goes to and from Weston to this place, and is a great acccommodation to passen gers. Cant we have a post office here, the Stage comes, and let s try and have the mail also. Law Cabtj. See card of A. & R. Reese, in another column. R. R. Reese, has lo cated in our place. We take great pleasure in recommending him as a gentleman very worthy and well qualified in his profession. Business of any kind, entrusted to him will meet with prompt attention. The Herald of Freedom, is the title of a paper, devoted to the cause of the Aboli tionists, said to be published at Wakarusa, in this Territory, but in fact there is no such paper published in the Territory. Such a paper is printed in New York and purports to be published at Wakarusa. We noticed in some of our exchanges,' that the Kansas Herald is referred to as the pa per. This paper has no affinity with the Herald of Freedom, has no connection with it whatever, and would not have any The Kansas Herald is devoted to the best inter ests of the Territory, while the other paper is a humbug, being printed in New York, .and devoted to northern interests exclusive- y- J5SFThe Kansas Pioneer, wants to know what the people of Leavenworth think of the Governor's move to the Shawnee Methodist Mission? Nothing more than this, we presume that he could get better quarters there than at the Fort and at the same tune be farther removed from Kickapoo.- But his move, we apprehend, does not de termine the fate of empires or decide the destiny of Leavenworth. Are our friends of the Pioneer answered? "The Bold and Fearless." The Kan sas Pionner, claims to be "the Jirsi and only paper in the Territory that has come out openly and fearlessly in favor oi slavery and the institutions of the south." We shall not aim to pluck a feather from its cap, but let the editors revel in their glory of mak ing such a grand discovery, While we do not profess to be the peucliar champion of the south, yet we hope we shall ever con tend for her rights, and the rights of "our whole country." We shall let our paper speak for itself, as to it position onallques- UUI1S uliaiiuy uiu I'uu.i'J niiixu, emu. ouau not claim exclusive privileges, nor arrogate to ourselves any peculiar credit, which mod esty ararejuelin some would forbid, but which prudence would indicate had bet ter come from some one else. We have generally found those most tender on some points, become the most bold and fearless, in an opposite direction. Squatter Organ. This is the sobri quet applied to the Kansas Herald, by our old neighbors of the St. Joseph Cycle The Herald is emphatically tiie pioneer press, and was established by one of the original sauaiters . of Leavenworth. We -a 4 have ever been the advocate and defender of the squatter's rights, and while we have the power of speech, or can wield a pen, it honorable class of our countrymen who fearing no evil, can brave the vicissitudes and encounter the perils of a pioneer life, who tramp down the nettles, and open the country to civilization and the fine arts; who convert the wilderness - from savage barbarity and make it to , blossom as the rose. The Herald, as it has ever been, will continue to be true to the interests of the squatters, and every infraction of their rights, shall not go unrebuked. We ? are proud of the appellation given us, as the SmisHpr nrmn anil are desirious of. no higher eulogy than to be considered wor thy to wear the' name. NEBBASKAKansas has taken the lead in the election. -After all said and done - it seems there will be no election in Nebras ka until alut Christmas, not even for a Pel- -.jBgate to Congress.

Ha ld erm an, of this place his private Sec retary, Ir H. hails from texington, Ken tucky, and is a" young man of fine abilities, and thorough education.' . He is endorsed by all the leading; democratic journals of his native State, and is recommended by legal gentlemen of all parties, -as a prompt, thorough business man. Where he is best known, no man stands higher, or with a fairer reputation than Mr. Halderman. We predict for him a bright, prosperous and useful career, in the Territory, of his adopt ed home. - ' " . . His appointment is a good one and unso licited on his part, it evinces the good judge ment and sound discretion of the Govern or, in making so judicious a choice. Jacksonville. This town is just being surveyed and is eligibly, situated. : It is on the main travelled road from Fort Leaven worth and Parkville toUniontown on the Kansas river, about 15 miles from this place and 30 from Parkville. It is situated on a beautiful undulating belt of prairie of about half mile in width, with timber on two sides, has a stream, Nobles Fork of Stranger, running by it on which" is a good mill site. A laTge settlement surrounds it, and from its central location must become the county seat of a large and populous county. There is every thing there to make a town, Al ready good roads from several principal points the best in the Territory pass through the place. The country adjacent is capable of admitting a dense population, the soil is rich, timber plenty, water and springs of the finest kind, building materials to be had, such as limestone rock, and tim ber, without difficulty, and stone coal in a bundance. Who then can doubt for a mo ment, that Jacsksonville will be a flourish ing and business place. A public sale of lots will not take place before next spring, in the mean time however, lots will be sold, at private sale, to persons wishing to build immediately. Great inducements are off this place to actual settlers. See advertisement in another column. GnvrnN-oR or Nebraska. This office seems to go begging, non. vvinaru r.

It is at the junction of the Republican Fork and is at the head of navigation on the Kansas river.

Although their paper has a strong semi-official odour, fully en dorsing measures which we abominate, and enunciating principles which are hostile to our. ideas of right, yet for the. sake of the many good things which a public journal may accomplish outside Of its political influ ence, as a vehicle of news, as an exposer generally of popular, fallacies, and, if con ducted at all properly, "as a conservator of public morals-: we trust it may be sustain ed.

September 9, 1854. ly or THE LEAVENWORTH MESSENGER. The undersigned will issue, n or about the 1st of December, 1854f at Leavenworth, K. T; THE LEAVENWORTH MESSENGER, a weekly Journal devoted to a liberal public poli cy, Agriculture, Manufactures, Mechanics Arts, Commerce, Education, and the Pro-slavery in terest in Kansas Territory. In the commencment of our undertaking as pub lic Journalists, we are not unmindful of the man y responsibilities we are assuming, and every exertion will be made on our part to acquit our selves to the satisfaction of our patrons, and to make our Paper one of the leading Journals of tlis South-west. " In us, the Farmer and Mechanic will find ar dent supporters of their best interests, and the working-man of every avocation and pursuit, may rely on our willing and cheerful aevocacy and aid; the Pioneer and Squatter upon unocupied Public Lands, may look to us as to long-tried frends, for we are of them, and shall watch with a jealous eye over all their dearly bought rights and hard earned privileges. With Politics we do not expect to meddle; but the public have a right to know of our antecedent?, as well as to learn our present position. We have been old-line National Whigs of the Clay and Webster school, and we have yet to learn that these great Oracles of thi Whig party were mistaken in their policy, or. advocated any but wise and liberal principles ; but as questions are to be acted upon of more imnediate and vital im portance to us and to the country than adher ence to abstract Whig or Democratic doctrines, we cheerfullv f oreiro our former' predilectioiia for party, and define our position as follows: The present Administration has won upon our confidence by many of its leading measures, and we shall yield it our cheerful and humble support in such a policy as shall conduce to the general good. We fully endorse and will vindicate the principle of the Nebraska-Kansas Bill ; the full and final abrogation of the Missouri Compromise, and the wise provisions of the Fugitive. Slave Law. Upon the all-absording question if Sla very, we may state without reserve, that we- be lieve that the true interest of our Territory wiil be subserved bydncorporating it with our Insti tutions. For this end we shall fearlessly .and thoroughly discuss the subject and while we have no affinities with the Freesoiler, and heartily do test the Abolitionist, we still hope to conduct ths controersy in the spirit of kindness and liberal ity. We thus nail our colors at thelmast head, and we shall dodge no issues which may be per tinent to the main question. We are of those who .cannot be lulled into a false security by the 'masterly in&tiYity, and fair representations of our wily opponents. We are confident that ths ques'doa is to be sprung upon us by oar Freesoil friends , whenever the neutral flag can be dis pensed with, and we are ready for trie issue. - As National men, we shall labor for the good of the whole country, for the Union, and tire Union in its integrity ; be we are free to admits that upon this question, our sympathies and convictions are with the South and West, and that while we are engaged in the advancement of their interests, we are engaged- in "a labor of love", . . We , ex pect to make our Paper a medium of much val uable general intelligence to the public.- - We have an established . Correspondence In Oregon, California, Utah and New Mexico, and will give the earliest .reliable news from, all intermediate points. .We will also have regular Correspon dants in all the principal Cities of the; Uiuon, and a special Correspondent at: the seat cf the General Goverment. "With this abstract of our principles and . purposes, . we , submit our undertaking to the patronage of ' generous public, trusting that we may merit their liberal support.-'' x- - : - -- . TERMS.
