According to a call made by the Commit tee of the 14th District, to express the views of the people in regard to the unwarranted action of their Representative, C. Columbia, in voting for the members of the Territorial Legislature from Leavenworth county, who were elected by the frauds perpetrated at Kickapoo, met at the Emporia House on Fri day, Dec. 25th, 1857, when L. T. Heritage was elected Chairman, and J. V. Randolph Secretary. . On motion of N.-S. Storrs, Messrs. Wm. Perrvv Albert Thompson and James Jack son were appointed as a committee to draft TPsnlutionq exrjressincr the views of the meeting. Said committee reported as fol lows : - Your committee, to whom was referred the subiect of the late act of C. Columbia in the Territorial. Legislature, in regard to the contested' seats from the Leavenworth Dis trict, would beg leave to report as follows : Whereas, the evidence before the said Territorial Legislature was of the most pos itive kind, insomuch that the report of the committee of said Territorial Legislature left not the slightest room to doubt that the members who came with certificates of elec tion were not entitled to seats ; and Whereas, our Representative was elect ed upon the distinctive issue of Freedom, and opposition to all fraud, from whatever direction it may come ; therefore Resolved, That in voting for the retention of said fraudulently elected members in their seats, the said Representative betrayed the interests and wishes of his constituents, and gave too glaring proof of his insinceri ty to the pledge made previous to his elec tion, and of his criminal complicity with his Border Ruffian colleagues.' Resolved, That we condemn, in the most positive terms, the said acts, and hereby publish to the people outside of our District that we henceforth disown said Representa tive, and will not hold ourselves responsible for his acts. , , - Resolved, That we hereby declare that we have no confidence in the good faith of said Representative, and hereby, in behalf of his constituency, ask of him to resign at once his disgraced seat in our Territorial Councils.

Attest: C. V. ESKRIDGE, Clerk. Geological Survey. We thiuk it time that something should be done in having a geological survey of Kanzas. Long ago we should have had one if Government had been as ready and anx ious to advance our material interests as it has been to plant slavery among us, or to make our Territory a play-ground for reek- less politicians in or out of it. We hope this important matter i will not be longer overlooked. Everybody knows how much coal facili ties adds to the. solid prosperity of any community. We believe we have these ; that there is, near Leavenworth, good beds of this "black article," so much better cal culated to advance the common prosperity than that other "black article," for which Congress, or those that control Congress, have so enduring and strong an affection. Yet we have not had any attention paid to our interests in this rejrard, and will not have until we let our rulers know that they are not to be neglected. The truth is, that this portion of the west must become, if we have ordinary facilities, a manufacturing region. No climate is su perior. WTe escape the hot weather of the South, and the extreme cold of the' rortb, avoiding the enervation of the one and the ill enects ot the other, we have, m our soil, a producing power sure to bless us, when it is tilled, with, abundance, and to yield us that abundance at cheap rates. Labor here, free labor, will ever be remune rating, and hence it will fill up every channel and, therefore, turn its attention early to manufacturing. Id becomes us, then, to know well our resources ; and, to do that, a thorough geo logical survey should be made of the Terri tory. Leavenworth Times. The statement that senator Douglas takes ground with Gov. Walker and against the A Iministration, in favor of submitting the whole Constitution to the people, has excited some surprise. The known pro slavery proclivities of Douglas, and his servility to Southern interests, would nat urally lead him in a different direction. His position may be accounted for by the fact that his senatorial term expires next vear, and that he rightly considers a failure to be re-elected as excluding him from consideration in the selection of a Presi dential candidate in 1860. Hence this un wonted deference to Northern opinion. 1 Hon. Theodore Frlinghuysen, bf New Jersey, was lately married to Miss Harriet A. Humpelly, of Oswego, New York. WHOLESALE AND RETAIL.
