It 'J Ullf TOJf, s 3 Correspoadiag Editor. EMPORIA, KANZAS: -81TUIll)ATs:n::J?OTEHBER T, 1851. The Danger. - "Are the people ef Kanza3 fully awake to the perilous positiom in which they stand ? Do they comprehend that la - & few . weds more a Constitution, bloody with the life fluid of our martvrs and black with the Hackest infamy of slavery, will be in the Halls of Congress asking to be received as the compact under which" Yor, Fbxs vzn or Kakzas, are to be admitted into the Union. . Do you comprehend that in all probability this villainous document will be received by the Democrats aad .Dough faces who now have a majority in the Na tional Councils? ' We have been laSed to sleep by the syren song of peace while there was no peace, and the traitors sow In session at Lecomp ton have never closed their eyes. Not one step have our foes retreated not one ; but surelv, steadily, persistently have they gone on in their work of enslaving Kanzas, and to-day the instruments of this fearful plot of treason and crime nre engaged in con summating one of the last and most impor tant acts in their bloody and dismal drama. They flinch cot or retreat, but onward march to the object which they have set them selves to achieve. " Eternal vigilance is the price of Liberty," and there can be no peace while one stone of this despotism remains unturned and yet we have been idly lying on our oars, or rimming after false gods, rhfle thev have been cemented together more strongly than ever. " Lay not the flattering nnction to your souls" that the Olisarchists and Ruffians who have played for so high a prize as the fair soil of Kanzas will yield that prize when but one more crime is needed to secure it. The men now assembled at Lecompton "in the Treason Convention are the deepest, shrewdest and most talented of their party. They know well what they are staking every foot of the ground is familiar to (hem, and not one step is takes bit the conse quences are well weighed. While we are trafficing in town lots building up our homes they are scheming, planning and working out our ruin. There is no swerv ing no faltering they feel assured of the success of their plans, and go forward to the goal to which they aim. These men knew well when they allowed the people of Kanzas to gain a bare triumph in the . Ter ritorial Eketien, that the Latter machine would be completely superceded by the one that in the Treason Convention they are making. They knew well that by the bay onets of the U. S. Troops they were to be protected in their task of infamy. They determined that the Constitution should be as ultra as it was possible to make it, and what does the fact show ? In all the Slave States there is no Constitution so in famous as the one now to be forced upon the people of Kanzas. Would they do this if they felt they were not secure from the vengeance of an outraged people, and as sured of ultimate success ? They know too that Gov. Walker will leave for Washington as soon as this document is tramed, never we believe to return. They know too that no matter in what shape or manner it may come before it, a majority in Congress will vote for its adoption, and the Representa tives and Senators elect will take their seats. Men of Kanzas ! Will you submit to this foul treason Shall all the fruits of your bitter past be turned into ashes in your grasp ? Have you become so disheartened that a miserable minority of two thousand, thoujrh abetted bv Federal influence and Federal bayonets, can rule and reign over twenty thousand? What i3 life without Liberty ; and shall we allow this to proceed to its close ? There is something worth living for be sides that which material wealth can give. In your hands, men of Kanzas, rests the tri umph or failure of those great principles of self-government for which the swelling heights of Bunker and Breed were strewn with dead, and the snow of Valley Forge marked with the bloody footprints of the Revolutionary Spartans. There is a srran- deur and power in - numbers which can be felt but not described. "Thrice armed is he whose quarrel's just ;" and if the' Peo ple of Kaxzas but will to stay this treach ery, they can do it. . ... There is but little space left for labor. In a few weeks the crisis of our strife will be on us. Let us iwork while it is still day." The people must repudiate the work of these traitors' in tones of thunder not only in word but deed. Let the Convention, Pres ident Buchanan and the Federal Congress understand that this Constitution must not and shall not be forced upon us. Call your meetings in every district throughout the Territory ; speak your condemnation in terms not to be mistaken, and which shall strike terror into the hearts of those tools of the slave power at Washington, who would do as this wrong ; but above all, remember to orgaaize and prepare to resist this damn able outrage. If tha worst comes, and it is Attempted to force it upon us by Federal bayonets, let s at least prove ourselves worthy of the Freedom which for three years past we have been battling. It is said that the tract of kind known as the "Shawnee purchase," a portion of which is comprised in what is known as Douglas and Shawnee counties, is now open for prnirtfi. - A Walker Ueeting." ! A public meeting was held at Lecompton on Saturday last for the purpose of glori fying Gov. Walker and Sec'y Stanton. Flaming handbills announced the meeting. and an appeal was made to the' " citizens of Kanzas, without, respect to party," to turn out and testify their admiration of the " Great Pacificator." The day dawned au spiciously, but the " sovereigns" did not come " as . was anticipated, ' and when the meeting organized at two o'clock p. m., less than one hundred persons were present, a large majority of whom were lawyers, loaf ers and land agents of Lecompton and Law rence. ..Col. Moore was chosen Preside ut of the meeting, and he in turn chase five Vice Presidents, a Committee on Resolu tions and two Secretaries, all of whom were either ultra Pro-Slavery or intensely " Na tional Democratic." Walker's Free State satellites were -" snubbed" beautifully. WhGe the committee on Resolutions were out, Judge Smith was called on to speak ; but happening to allude to the slavery ques tion, he was called to order by the Chair, who stated that Walker, not Freedom, .was the subject for eulogy, on the present ocea sion. As soon as the Judge was choked off, the Committee-on Resolutions reported. The Resolutionsjdorsedthe Proclama tion of Gov. Walker-before the election, and those of Walker and Stanton rejecting the Oxford and McGee returns and eulosisinjr those gentlemea very highly ; and ended by-thankinr James Buchanan for vouch safing such paragons of justice and good ness to thtj people of Kanzas as Robert J Walker end Frederick P. .Stanton. A friend suggests that a "vote of thanks" to the Almighty for creating James Buchanan, would feave been exceedingly appropriate in this "connection.! The Resolutions were adopted with but two dissenting voices, about twenty voting in the affirmative. Sec'y Stanton was then called out and made a very tame ana uninteresting speecn ot about a half hour's length. At its close, three cheers were given by Col. Samuel Walker, who was lately commissioned as Sheriff of Douglas county, by the Governor Col. Moore made a short appeal for the Plusr-Ucly Congo Democracy, and the meeting adjourned sine die. We are far from envying Gov. Walker the " aid and comfoit" he will be able to ex tract from this endorsement. It shows con clusively that the people view these things in their true light ; and while approving his action in rejecting the illegal vote of Oxford and McGee, they remember his sym pathy with their enemies ; and they remem ber, too, his action at Kickapoo, and the rejection of the returns from Linn, Frank lin, Coffey, Anderson, and Breckenridge Counties ; and their sense of justice would not allow them to applaud one, without condemning" the other. Financial Matters. Since the suspension of the New York and Boston banks, a general feeling of re lief has been experienced in those cities. The currency, from the Specie Standard has been changed to one of Current Bank Notes or current funds, and business trans actions, in every department of trade has conformed to me cnange. ine specie standard has ceased to be the rule of busi ness for the present. This is also true of most of the other principal cities. Cur rency is freely token by St. Louis mer chants in exchange for goods. Nearly all of the suspended Banks will doubtless be able in a short time to redeem their circu lalion, so that bill-holders will lose com paratively little. There is no reason why the bills of secured Banks should not pass as current as previous to the general crash ; and such will be the case. The Chicago Tribune takes the following sensible view of the results of the suspension. "The result of the suspension, therefore, is not starvation, in any manner of view. The banks held the means for opening the warehouses, starting the looms and awaken ing the industry of the country. This has passed into tbe hands of the people at least a good portion of it. It will be in cir culation immediately and performing its proper office. The bank sticklers out of the way, the needs of the community will force the acceptance of the safe and secured currency of those States which are blessed with such circulation. Doubtless most of the banks of New England are yet solvent in the proper se of that term, and, if re quired to go into liquidation under the ope ration of the laws and with the oversight of the State officers, will redeem every dollar of their obligations. This will afford a me dium for conducting the country's exchang es until we regain our financial equipoise. In the worst possible view of the ultimate solvency of the banks, the change from tbe stupor and death of the past two months is incalculably for the better. We have noth ing to pay abroad, or to speak accurately, we are paying nothing abroad ; therefore the want of gold is no insuperable obstacle. We see no reason why renewed prosperity should ot proceed from the grand crash which opened the present week." Fire ux Chicago. Chicago papers, of the 23d and 24th ult-, bring us the particulars of a fearful confla gration which broke out in that city on Mon day morning, the 19th ult., resulting in the destruction of 5700,000 worth of property, and the loss of eighteen lives. From the facts developed at the inquest, held after the fire, it appears not improbable that the fire was the work of an incendiary. Some facts, not particularly creditable to Chicago young men, have been developed. , Pro-Slavery .Butcher, whom the people of Douglas Co. ousted from the Sheriffality at the late election, has been appointed as Deputy by hi3 successor, Capt.' Samuel Waller, late of the Free State Army I Hur- S rah for the firm of Balker and Wulcher. The Crowning Act. . -;i The Traitors who have been in session at Lecompton for a few weeks past, conspiring against the liberties of the People of Kan zas, have completed their infamous work and adjourned. . Many have dared to hope that a feeling at fear if not of justice, would induce them to submit the result of their la bors to the people for approval or rejection. But such is not the case. Protected by the strong arm of Federal power, they have laughed to scorn the impotent rage of the people whose liberties they were pl6tting to destroy. ' They determined that the people should not have the privilege of voting upon the Constitution. They were afraid even to trust their Missouri allies, and refused to submit it to the people of Kanzas and Hit souri. . In the Xatwnal Administration they have a stronger and more faithful ally than Missouri has ever been. It they can trust! In every emergency the Administration has proved its . loyal devotion to the principles and policy of these despots. The Consti tution is not to be submitted at all ! They have invented a "dodge" worthy of "Iso thermal". Walker himself. -The slavery clause of the Constitution alone is to be sub mitted to a vote of the people, hvery vote cast, either for or against, will be fori the Constitution! The. ballots will contain JJiq words: "Constitution with Slavery,", r " Constitution without Slavery." No chance will be offered to vote' on the balance of the Constitution, which is essentially pro-slave ry in all its parts ! It is an infamous and outrageous document, and bears the stamp of despotism on every line. If the slavery clause shall be voted down, and the Consti tution be accepted by Congress without that clause, Kanzas would be as much a slave State as though there were a thousand clauses in that Constitution establishing it. The Su preme Court of the United Sta'es has deci ded that Slavery exists in all States and Territories of the General Government until excluded therefrom by positive prohibition! James Buchanan, in his Silliman letter, takes the same ground. Slavery exists in Kanzas to-day, and a Constitution which is silent on the subject is equally pro-slavery with one that endorses it. Before the first of January next this off spring of tyranny will be presented to Con- gross, uan any one douot the result! ine "Democracy" are sold, "soul and body" to the Slave Oligarchy they will haste to do its bidding. Firemen of Kanzas! The fruits of three years of struggle for the rights and liberties bequeathed to you by the Fathers are about to vanishl Will you sit idly by and see the "Crime against Kanzas" and Liberty every where completed, when a breath of yours would annihilate your oppressors and re move tbe thrall which so long has bound you? Will you abandon the holy trust of the Fathers in this hour of need? " A voice is swelling from their graves! Its appeal is wafted to your ears on every breeze: "Mr SONS, SCORN TO BE SLAVES?" To the Point. The Lawrence Republican in an article bearing the expressive title " Wipe them Out," thus forcibly speaks of the necessity of removing every trace of the Usurpation from among us. It expresses our senti ments fully, and we give it to our readers without further comment : " The struggle in Kanzas has been, and now is, to gel rid of this usurpation. That end will not be accomplished so long as a single trace of ruffian authority exists in the Territory. Everything which has been touched by these political lepers must be cleansed. Everything must start anew. Every scratch of a pen the dotting of an i or the crossing of a t by any one of these rufhan usurpers, must be rubbed out. The usurpation, with all its fruits, must be cut up root ami branch. . There mustn't be so much as a root the size of your little tinker lelt to tell where the accursed tree stood. We must tear down the usurpation. burn it with fire and then plpw up the ground whereon it stood. We must scatter chloride of lime and other disinfectants wherever a usurper has trod, lest lie have left contagion and death in his footsteps. The very air they have breathed should, if possible, be expelled to the outer regions of the atmosphere for a thousand years that it may. become purified. In short, there mustn't be a sign, trace, image, shadow, suspicion or scent of this infamous, de formed, ill-begotten, infernal usurpation left. We must bind it, as the English do the Sepoys, to our heavy guns, and blow it 10 atoms, coming snort oi 11113 will -satisfy the people. No knuckling at this late hour, no compromising, no half-bogus half genuine, will answer at all. must be clean work. The world must see and know that a usurpation cannot be established over any portion of the American people 1 Wants Notoriety. The editor of the Kanzas Leader wants ns to kick him into notoriety. A few weeks since he devoted a column of his delectable sheet in attempting to prove that we were a Gerrit Smith Abolitionist, and after conjur ing up the shape, cursed it ; and in his last issue he accuses us of being a political follower of the N. Y. Tribune! 'Twon't work, neighbor. Nature evidently designed you for a sort of political "sweep," and yon must be content. Forward Your Petitions. Those having in their possession petitions or memorials to Congress for the establish ment of mail and railroad routes for South ern Kanzas, are requested to forward them to W. F. M. Arny, care of Louis C. Amy, Georgetown, D. C. The Northern Disunion Convention, call ed by nearly 7,000 citizens of the Free States, and appointed to be held at Cleve land on the 28th and 29th ult, has on ac count of the great financial' revulsion, been postponed until furtlier nolic. ' Our Model Administration. It is quite in keeping with the character of a man who for the sake of office will re morselessly eat his own opinions, that he should, after having given his official sanc tion to the infamous creed of Calhoun and his followers, also hand in his adhesion to the murderous doctrine of filibustering ; a doctrine which saps all the foundations of national honor and morality and will ulti mately; brand us, and deservedly so, as a nation of pirates and cut-throats. Read the following from the Washington correspondent of the N. Y. Times dated Oct. 12th : " It is also confidently, and I am quite sat isfied truly asserted, that the Administra tion heartily sympathizes with these eon- tpmulated efforts of the filibusters. The recent manifesto issued by General Cass declaring the right of an American citizen to expatriate himself, and go whithersoever he may choose with arms in hand, free of molestation from this troverment, was not nut forth without consultation. It pre sented the policy of Mr. Buchanan, and not merely the personal views of the Secretary of State; and however ready the President mav show himself to restrain organized 'armed expeditons,' such as are forbidden bv the neutrality law, he will never, unaer color of that law, throw the least obstacle in the way of those who chcose singly to leave the country, even with the avowed purpose of joining a revolutionary party in Nicaragua or elsewhere. . Some months ago, when waiter was sun struggling against the combination of Cos ta Rica, pestilence and starvation, Mr. Soule came hither for the purpose 01 securing if possible, an immediate recognition of the Walker-Rivas Government. He was not, however, sanguine of success at first ; but interviews which he had with Mr. Buchan an and his Cabinet soon satisfied him of their cordial sympathy with Walker, and he received nattering 'assurances that his Government would speedily be recognized if later advices should show him still main taining himself. Unfortunately for the fi libuster cause, Walker capitulated a little too soon. When he came to Washington subsequently he had an interview with Mr. Buchanan, in which he maintained, with uniform steadiness, his claim to be recog nized. not as an American citizen, but a Nicaraguan, and declared his determia tion to return to the country of his adoption, and struggle for the re-establishment of his government. He left vell assured that no new difficulties would be raised for him by the American Administration, so long as he Ta?. careful not to violate the letter of the neutrality law as already stated. Thus the matter stands at present, and unless British and French cruisers interfere successfully to prevent Walker and his men from getting into the country again, you need not be sur prised to hear soon that the conflict is re newed on the San Juan River and in the heart of the Republic, and pursued with greater vigor and larger resources than ever." The Times it is pretty generally under stood is the chosen journal of the "EquDib- riumites" in New York, and its Washington news is generally reliable. At this moment large armaments are be ing fitted out at New Orleans and Savannah and men are being raised in the South for the purpose of aiding Walker in his Slave Propagandism. The Vicksburg papers speak of the departure of a small body of Mississippians to New Orleans, en route for Nicaragua. The San Antonio (Texas) Herald, an nounces the formation of a regiment of Ranoers. under the command of Colonel Waters, Col. Crawford and Capt. Henry. The latter gentleman is Sheriff of the coun ty in which San Antonio is situated, and the Herald says : " His absence will be temporary, his du ties as Sheriff of our County not allowing of a prolonged engagement in the service of Nicaragua." This, we presume, is what the Adminis tration means when it says every citizen has the right to expatriate himself, and when the distinguished Sheriff above men tioned shall return from his expedition the probabilities are that an admiring President will reward him for his devotion. We wonder whether President Moro of Cos.a Rica would be allowed to raise men and arms like this Xicaraguaian Walker, but our own opinion is that should any body of men, however small, attempt to leave these shores with the avowed object of opposing Walker, that the Cabinet would then find out that the neutrality laws were infringed and the expedition would be stopped. Slavery propagandism excuses a multi tude of sins, and the thief, pirate and mur derer, the man who deliberately plans the cold-blooded assassination of one who had welcomed him to his native land, who plun ders his benefactors and cruelly and vilely abuses his own followers, is welcomed as a hero to the White House, and admitted as an honored guest to the President's society. The yard-arm were tbe fitting punishment of Gen. Walker, yet he goes back on his piratical mission, with the open good wish es and secret support of 7 the National Ex ecutive. " Great is our Goddess Slavery and blessed be her worshippers" is the cry of these modern Epbesians, and Buchanan and his Cabinet are foremost in their devo tion to the American Juggernaut. . . .

At least one thou sand illegal votes were polled for Hansom at Delaware, Kickapoo, Marysville and other places, and in Southern and South-western Kanzas, where the population is unanimous ly Free State, the polling precincts w.ere so located as to make it impossible to secure a full turnout of the "legal" voters, while the six months' residence qualification ex cluded the bulk of last spring's emigration. Had the polling precincts been fairly appor tioned, and no residence qualification inter posed, the vote would have been at least twenty thousand, which would indicate a population of about one hundred thousand. TLe Elections. Psxkstlvakia. Official returns from 30 counties show the following vote for Gov ernor at the late election : Packer, 126,096; Wilmot, 89,385; Hazlehurst, 24,784. In the same counties the vote at the Presiden tial election last November stood thus ; Bu chanan, 157,629 ; Fremont, 87,874 ; Fill more, 62,525. There is a loss of 31,533 by the Administration party, 37,741 by the Americans, and again of 1,511 by the lie publicans. Packer's excess over Wilmot in these thirty counties is 36,711, and his re ported majorities in twenty other counties foot up 6,093, making together 42,804 in fifty-one counties. The remaining thirteen counties will give a small majority for Wil mot. Ohio. The official returns from forty eight counties show a majority of 1,917 for Gov. Chase, Republican. All the Republi can State ticket is chosen, except Blickens- derfer, for the Board of Public Works. The Legislature is two-thirds Democratic Indiana. Ex-Senator John Pettit, one of the lights of Indiana "Old-Lineism," has been defeated as a candidate for the Judge ship in the Lafayette Circuit, by Charles H Lest, Republican, who is ekcted by about 400 maioritv. The following is the total vote in the .Tenth (Fort Wayne) Congres sional district, to fill the vacancy earned by the death of Brenton, the Republican mem ber : Case, 1,725 ; Wordeu, 1,005. Major ity for Case, Republican, 720: Iowa. Returns from sixty-seven coun ties have been received, which give Lowe, Republican, a majority of 3244. The Re publican majority in the Legislature, on joint ballot, will be eighteen. Minnesota. Returns from all but four teen small counties, leaves Ramsay, Repub lican, 345 ahead. The Democrats seem to have improvised a county called Davis, and another dubbed Pierce, neither of whose re turns are yet apparent. Nobody ever heard of these counties before. The returns will doubtless come in just after the rest of the Territory is counted, to restore equilibrium, etc. Mississippi. The election in Mississippi," on the 5th inst., was for Governor, a Legis lature, and members of Congress. The only accounts received 6how large Administration majorities. We annex the names of the successful Congressional candidates, all of whom are Administration men : First dis trict, L. Q. C. Lamar ; second district, Reu ben Davis ; third district, Wm. Barksdale ; fourth district, O. R. Singleton ; fifth dis trict, J. A. Quitman. The Mandamus. Gov. Walker and Sec'y Stanton refuse to obey the Mandamus issued by Judge Cato to compel them to grant certificates of elec tion to the pro-slavery candidates elected by the fraudulent vote of Oxford, for the fol lowing among other reasons : "Sixth, Because it is well settled by the Supreme Court of the United States, and by other judicial tribunals, that a writ of man dam U3 can be issued only where there is no other remedy, or where there is no authority j vested elsewhere to control the officer sought to be directed by mandamus, or to correct his error. Whereas, in this case, if it be true, as stated, (which is de nied), that the parties named in this rule or order, have been elected to the offices in said writ assigned to them respectively, viz: to the Council and to the House of Representa tives of the Legislative Assembly of this Territory, these two bodies being the judges in the list resort of the qualifications and election of their own members, have each respectively the power to correct alleged eirors made by the undersigned, and to ad mit said persons to the "offices aforesaid, which remedy is complete, final and effect-. ual." . They express themselves as beln wilting, however, to pay the penalty of such refusal, even though it be imprisonment. The last member of Washington's family is dead.

The Democratic Creed. The Minnesota Republican thus pungent- ly and pointedly lays down the creed of modern Democracy : I believe in the righteousness of Humarf Bondage. v I believe it to be the duty of the Conreft of the United States to extend Slavery wher ever the American flag floats; and J believe mis extension 10 im me gumuus mission of the blessed Democracy. I believe that the error of Washmfrton when he pronounced the present philan thropic salvation of niggers, by holding them in slavery, "a wrong," was only an error of judgment and not of heart, and at tributable to the meager advantages he (Washington) enjoyed for intellectual cul ture. I believe that Thomas Jefferson the im mortal author of the Declaration of Inde pendence was the father and founder of Democracy, and deserves our highest rev erence. I believe the Declaration of Independence to be "a self-evident lie" and a "tissue of glittering generalities." 1 believe that a negro nas no rights that a white man is bound to respect. I believe that a father may sell his son in to bondage, and his daughter for purposes of prostitution, or that he may himself hold his own son as a slave, and keep his daugh ter to gratify his lust; and that whoever re bels against this "dispensation of Provi dence," is a fanatic and nigger-worshipper- x oeneve in ine pmain iorce 01 ine ai vine command ' to "multiply 'and'" replenish: the earth that young niggers are a profita ble crop, and that no 'questions should be asked as to their paternity. I believe that God is the father of all cre ation, niggers excepted, and that they de scended from Ham, and are cursed to the end of time; that there ought to be, if there is not, somewhere in the limits of spaee, xieaven ior tneir use, 11 tney are not per mitted, being "things," to co to Hell at all. or if the Pit should be too fall of Ablition ists to hold 'em. I believe in St. Walker, thelero of Nic&r-' agua, and I pray for his restoration to kis CU Ml ft neiu ut inrisuan useiuiDess. I believe in James Buchanan and endorse his whole glorious career; when he made anti-slavery, speeches from the stump; when he voted for the Wilmot Proviso and "clung to the Missouri Compromise, and hoped it. would be adopted by Congress;" when he repudiated the Missouri Compromise for the great idea of Squatter Sovereignty, and when he sacrificed this darling principle af ter he discovered that its application would be disastrous to our glorious Union, I believe with the Supreme Court and the illustrious statesman Taney, that niggers are mixed-colored cattle, and that they have no rights except to be chained and whipped and raise cotton. I believe that the Consti tution makes the glorious provision for es tablishing Slavery everywhere in the Amer ican Republic, and that white folks havn't any rights unless they own niggers. I believe in Stephen A. Douglas; that he was right,when he commended the Missouri Compromise as a sacred compact "cannon ized in the hearts of the American people as a sacred thing, which no ruthless hand would ever be reckless enough to disturb." I believe that he was right when he declared it to be unjust to the South, and "inofe'ra-'" five and void.' ' I believe he was " right when he broke it down, and put squatter sov ereignty in its place. I believe that he was. right when he abandoned squatter sovereign ty and set up our blessed dogma of the old en time the strong shall govern the weak instead thereof. I believe iu the rascality of the Black Republicans, and the purity and sanctity of our brethren, the Irish Catholics, all of our political faith in the dangers to be encoun tered in patronizing the hell-defying, beer drinking Dutch who will not subscribe to our creed. I believe in Democracy, with Douglas' explanations and reservations; in the New Testament as expounded by enlightened Southern divines, especially in the chapter treating of Onesimus and Paul; in the Con stitution as explained by Taney; in the Higher Law, when subordinate to an act of Congress; in the Brotherhood of Man, when there is no nigger iq the case; in the final, triumph of Slavery, - and its life everlasting; Amen. In behalf of the Kanzas Democracy whom we feel convinced will cheerfully sub scribe to the above "articles of faith," we beg leave to add tbe following : I believe that the qualifications for membership in the Democratic church are to be found in the above articles, and that those only who have killed an Abolitionist, burned a Hotel, de stroyed a printing press, scalped a man, stolen Free State horses or committed rape, are fit to be trusted with the responsible du ties and offices of that church, and for the time when these qualifications shall be genr- e rally required, do most devoutly pray..
