There were other struggles, too, with the '-thoughtless follies,'" the oil spring of strong and uncontrolled im pulses. JJut with this we have naught to do; or, if we think of them at all, we must couple the thoughts "with the poets own words : Wh-it's, done we partly mav compute, l.ut know not what's re.-i.-t'ed. The "thoughtless follies" have pass ed forever away; but there remain, and always will remain, the bright impress of his genius, exerting an ameliorating influence over the minds of thousands. There is, perhaps, no poet whose works bear the impress of his own character so thoroughly as do the poems of Burns. The unselfish, regard for the "welfare of others, the lofty scorn of everything mean, supersti tious or hypocritical, the sense of rational religion and appreciation of virtue, coupled with kindly humor, and an exquisite sense ofthe ridicul ous. It has been charged against him that he was a scorner of sacred things: hut no charge can be more unjust; the shafts of his satire were leveled against Pharisaical hypocriey alone. JJe never wrote a hue against Christianity or true religion: on the contrary, he reverenced it, as can be seen in many ol his poems as well as his epistolary writings, In his poeti cal epistle to his young friend Kobert Aikin, he tells him that When muting roum! in pleasure's ring, lleliirion may be blinded, And ilshegiea random sting, It may K- Utile minded, Hut when on lilV we're tempest-drivca. A conscience but a lankcr, A corispamlenec li.t with heaven, Is sine a noble anchor. The rank of Burns n? a poet lias been lixed years ago: and not only by the common consent of mankind, but by the appreciative judgments of fel low bards, of Byron, Scott, Campbell, Bryant, llallack, Whitlior, and a host of others. Mr. Whit tier says, "The ! world litis never known a truer sing er. v e may criticise his rustic verse, and compare his brief and simple ly rics with Avorks of men of longer scrolls and loftier lyres; but alter rendering to "Wordsworth, Tennyson and Browning the homage which the t , , 7 ? 1 , . i i i r , Burns, if not with awe and reverence, i with a fueling of personal intoresest i and affection.

Jacobs the particulars of one ofthe most sanguin ary and bloody a flairs that has so far crimsoned the annals of our county. It appears that an altercation occurred be tween two men Matt Clemens and John Fuller, Saturday, at the town of Freder icksburg, whkh ended in tho tlouth oT one. and the mortally wounding of tho other, both being disemboweled. Clem ens shot Fuller, tearing his abdomen, permitting his bowels to fall out. He holding his bowels with his left hand, attacked Clemens with a knife, inflicting two severe wounds in the back, where upon Clemens turned around, and Full er at one stroke across his bowels empt ied his abdomen, both falling side by side. Fuller dietl Sunday morning, and Clemens was hourly expected to die, as his wounds were considered mortal. Fuller was a peaceful citizen, raised in this county, and leaves a wife and four children comparatively destitute. Clem ens was a blacksmith, bears a bad re cord, having it is said killed his third man, and soparated from his second wife. He leaves two children destitute in this county. Since the above was in type we learn, that Clemens died Tuesday evening. llichmond (Kay Co..) Conservator. A Kansas Law-Point. At White Cloud, last week, they had a case, the decision of which beats tiie cel ebrated judgment of Solomon. A per son owing another money, gave him a bill of sale of a safe. The t ime expired, the debt was not paid, and the person holding the bill of sale tool: possession of the safe, and removed it to quarters provided for the purpose. The former owner's books were in tiie safe, and he asked ami received permission to unlock the s!e and take them out. in locking the safe he changed the combination, so thrtt no person but himself could open it, and Upon demand,refused to divulge the secret. On complaint of the owner ot the safe, this person was arrested on a criminal charge; both the parties en gaged lawyers, and the trial commerce ed. The attorneys for the defendant set up the plea that the combination of tho lock was in tho mind of the defendaut, and no where else, and that tlj sole question was. whethera man's mind was subject to a mortgage or bill of sale. Strange- to say, the attorney for tho prosecution admitted that this was tho decisive jMijiit, and tho Justiee.of course, dismissed the suit. intellect owes to aenius we turn to ' I'M, I'teec v. ii :i f .1 w.l !.!
