To the south-east the land slope gently fo'the Junction To the "West it gradually rises for a distance of sev eral mile. ". On the North and South are large belts of the finest timber, along the Neosho and Cotton wood, while the various smaller streams emptying into them near this point, all well timbered, serve to make it one of thebest timbered regions in Kan sas, l ne valleys oi me x-teosao aim wiwa wu, and their tributaries, are acknowledged by all to be equal if not superior, as a farming district,, to any in Kanzas. Coal and building stone are found here in abundance. i.- .,'."'.-' Emporia was locaedin March last n About the first of April, the erection , of a large Hotel was commenced by the town company; which has j ust been completed. A commodious Store House has just been erected and filled with goods, and anothT er is in process of erection. A large saw and grist mill, with lath and shingle machines attached, is about being put up on the town site. . Another large 43 w mill ia in process of construction one! half a mile distant. There is at present one saw mill in operation near the junction, six miles dis tant, which has furnished the lumber used in the erection of the buildings now on the town site- There is also another saw mill, eight miles above on the Cottonwood, which is in operation. ' "No intoxicating drinks axe allowed to be sold on the town site. The two following features we eopy from the contract of the proprietors: -, . 'The parties bind themselves to each other, that in every sale or donation of anv portion of the land which may be selected or located for a town site, they will sign no deed of sale, release, gilt, grant or lease to the same, without a , provision in such deed of sale, release, gift, grant, or lease, that the lessee shall not make, store, sell, or give away, to be used as m beverage, any malt or spirituous li quors on such premises so sold or conveyed awar, and that any violation of such provisions shall be a forfeituru of all the right which such pccLa ser, donee, grantee, or tenant shall have acquired to said premises. - .- -r. . "Ana the said parties further' agree that they will also prohibit in all deeds and conveyances, as above, ana bind purchasers to extend the same pro visions to their assignees, that no houses shall be allowed to be occupied for gambling purposes on any of the lots of said town; and any gambling for money, or otherwise, by which anything shall be lost or won, on said premises, with the knowledge and counsel of the purchaser, shall be a forfeiture of all the right which - said purchaser, donee, gran tot or tenant shall have acquired to said prem ises." . ; . .' , - . ; , -.

' '- Shall we Celebrate the Glorious Fourth? It has been suggested to us 'by several persons in this neighborhood, that it would be quite prop er, and productive of much good, to have . some kind of a celebration at Emporia; on- the Fourth of July next. '. We think the suggestion af good one, for many reasons.' Nearly all the new-comers, and many old ones, too, in" the.- neighborhood, are unacquainted with each other, and a. meeting of the kind proposed would bring all the people to gether, and give . them a chance: -to become ac quainted, i The planting season will then be over, and we ara sure that there is not, a farmer in the length or breadth of the Neosho -valley but would willingly spare one day to celebrate the anniver eary of hi country's .independence, and BaTe a chat wit)his neighbors. ; Of course, all who haTe them, would be. expected to wing their wives and daughters along with them to enliven tike -occasion with - their presence.

The Unitarian Church at Lawrence was filled to overflowing on last evening by the inhabitants of the city and vicinity, to welcome to Kanzas the Hon. Henry . Wilson, Senator fronv Mass.; Rev. John Pierpont, the Poet; Dr. Howe, of Boston, and other distinguished friends of- Freedom. Mr. Wil son and the other gentlemen arrived in Lawrence on Monday morning, and on Tuesday afternoon Gov. Robt. J.JWalker and suite arrived from Leav enworth. The new Governor was waited upon and requested to be present at the levee in the evening and address the people. He declined to speak, but promised, to attend and make the acquaintance of the citizens." The church was filled at 8 o'clock by an audience, which, for intelligence arid general appearance could hardly be equalled out of New England., J-A fine brass band, under the direction of Mr. Kimball, was in attendance, and enlivened the proceedings by some excellent pieces of music. The meeting was called to order by the Rev. E. Nute, and Judge M. F. Conway nominated and elected Chairman. ' - '" After some" introductory remarks, the Hon. Robt! J. Walker was then introduced to the audience, and was well received. . He stated that it was not his intention to make a speech at this time, nor to an ticipate a statement of his policy, which in s a few days his Inaugural would fully declare to the peo ple, lie was nappy to nave uie pleasure 01 meeting so large- a body of his fellow-citizens of Kanzas, and trusted that he should ever deserve the wel come they had given him. He would ask . for his Inaugural address a fair, calm, and deliberative at tention.4 It was not his intention to make remarks upon the deplorable state with which Kanzas had been cursed, but his best endeavors should be used to restore peace and harmony. There was , one great fundamental principle underlying the Amer ican system of government, and that was the right of the majority to rule. - It should be- his mission in Kanzas to give the people not a party, but the whole people a full, free, fair and unqualified ex pression, at the ballot box, of their opinion as to wiiai mstiMiuons snouia exist in taeir minus. 11 was for the people to decide not only upon the great sectional issues of the hour, but upon the whole form of their State government. Hon. Henry Wilson was then introduced and re ceived with nine cheers. He said it gave him great pleasure to be able to stand among the people of Lawrence, and on the soil of. Kansas, v In common with the whole country, he had felt the most proj luuxiu iu.-n-8b ia uie struggle taxing piace on tnese beautiful plains, and he should return from seeing them with a deeper sense of the importance of that contest and a conviction that the clouds which have hovered over them are now "about to pass away, and that Peace, Liberty and Humanity, will crown uieir Deaury, ana mase tnem Et nomea for rree- laen lie came not to advise but to learn, and vhen leaving Kanzas, no one "can say that Henry Wilson . recommended any line of policy. Your new Governor is here at an important crisis. . He eaa add a new lustre to his already great feme, by doing justice to you. He has made you a pledge to-night; see to it that you hold him to it. You want peace to develop the resources of this mag nificent eountry; but let it not be-peace at the ex pense of Justice and liberty. - See to it that bo fraud or violence can wrest your right from you. I give you no advice; you know your rights, and I trust you know your duties. As an American cit izen, I conjure you to maintain -. Justice, Liberty and Truth '' We hope in the North to welcome you to the sisterhood of States, not only as a Free Site, but as a Freedom-loving State; not only for freedom in Kanzas, but throughout the country and the whole world. He belonged to that'class cf public men who had opposed the repeal of the Missouri Compromise. He, with others, had worked to remedy that act, but by the actiod of the people s the latelection, that remedy is taken out of our hands. It rests now; people of Kanx, with you; and from the knowledge we have of fourpastL5s tory.the people of the North feel it is ia worthy hands.

The Chairman,- Judge Conway, their made in able and forcible address, setting forth what the Free State people of Kanzas understood by that much, abused term, "Popular- Sovereignty, and giving Gov.

Among the many facts that have lately come to my knowledge res pecting the future prospects of Kanzas, none are more indicative of a prosperous future tnan tne numerous papers that are' starting in different ; parts of the Territory. They are social barometers, indicating the political, moral, and intellectual status and bias of the people. The fact that the demand for" read ing matter is so large is evidence enough that the mass of our population have cornel di rectly from the Eastern States." - The- West ern man becomes so accustomed to irregular mails, that his appetite is less frequent and regular in its demand for news, and he 1 fre quently looks upon newspapers more as a luxury than a necessity. . - - - . Ihe lact that we have- a reading popula tion-being established, the next important in quiry is;- what '.class 'of papers do they- principally support for this in a reading com munity, is a sure indication of the general 1.. tv , f.' 1 principles wnicn govern meir political ac tions; for editors, like their readers, ' are ei their .- radical or conservative; generous, or rabid and bitter; liberal-minded, - or narrow and contracted in their views; and just in the proportion that these fliflerent editors are encouraged and supported, may we expect to find the people divided into corresponding classes. : . - : - ; - - 1 ' I confess, sir, that I have a stronsr leaning towards radicalism, and that it gives me great pleasure to find that the Y. Tribune, and papers of a like -character, are so popular, and so extensively circulated in this , Terri tory. . It convinces me that the people now have a leaning towards radicalism; and if the papers now being established are only true to the j fundamental principles jof our govern ment, a bright future is before us. - We must have an enlightened home press one that fears not to advocate the right, though preju dice may be against it. It is too ofteri the case that men advocate a general principle! and demonstrate its correctness, but after wards try to limit its application. ,They will cry out to-day that "all men are" crea ted free and equal, and endowed with certain inalienable rights, among which are life, lib-, erty and the pursuit of happiness," and to morrow that 44 same men have no rights that others are bound to respect. Their last po sition gives the lie to the first; both cannot be correct, and yet both are enunciated. They say that Democracy requires that ' the law shall not give one man a better chance than it gives another,'!- and glory in their Democracy- but with the same breath; - cry out aloud for a clause in the Constitution putting the heel of government npon a por tion of the race. ..;; ( It is a matter of the , greatest importance that we weigh . well our principles . of action ; but having wisely adopted, let us? adhere to theni strictly. 1 Hoping, sir, that your paper may prove to be a liberal sheet, , with anrex-r tensive influence and circulation, .
