I his is shown by post mortem examination, made in al most avery instance. - ' Kansas and Prosperity. ; ' As Kansas becomes more explored, says the Cincinnati Columbian, as the delicious prairies, her rich wooded bottoms and her thousand streams, are viewed.and interro gated by the practical- agriculturist, and the thoughtful map of science, the estima tion of her value, her beauty, and her pros pects, grows higher and higher. There is a large class of our fellow citizens who are devouring with avidity every line of information about the new country, im parted by the press, and who have their eye fixed upon it, as those of the children of Israel were upon the promised land. It is the class of small means and great pru dence, the men who work hard and live economically, and who, yet, can do no more than provide their families with a decent maintenance. These men feel that they want room for their strength, and space to indulge their just ambition; which ambition is to rise, to own a farm, to get out of the shackles of dependence, and to tread their own ground "every, inch a man." A single fact in our own city, will show how little chance such men stand here. Every one is aware that on the suburbs of the city, in all directions, hun dreds of cottages were formerly built every summer by working men; now, as shown in Smith's recent annual report of the commerce of the city, the building is al most wholly confined to expensive edifices inside of the city. The reason is, land at the outskirts has become so dear, that a workingman cannot afford to buy, and he must submit to have his means hampered with the payment of a high rent, or he must be off to some other spot, where a man of small means has a chance to live and prosper. And where is that? The answer from New England.from the North. and from the West, is Kansas, there is a fine climate, a rich virgin soil, and 'no monopoly.' All have an equal chance, and the sober, industrious, and prudent, will draw the prizes. The following excellent article upon the topography and soil of Kansas, is from the St. Louis Democrat: Kansas has but two . strongly marked features in a topographical view, both ol which are well deserving, however, of at tention. It is partly an agricultural or ar able, and partly a pastoral, region the latter predominating very largely over the former. The agricultural portion consists of: rirst, A strip of territory bordering on the Missouri river, being some sixty miles in width, and extending from the great Nemahaw river to the bend in the Missou ri at the town of Kansas. This embraces in great part what is known as the "allu vial bottoms,' composed of the deep, rich moulds, caused by the yearly deposits of the luxuriant grasses and the leaves, thick ly timbered on the skirts with heavy forest growth, and well watered by numerous small rivulets and springs. Already the emigration from Missouri and Iowa has occupied the choice sites ot this part of the country, and but little is left for the selection of the newly arrived emigrant. Secondly, The valley ot the Kansas riv er, and its numerous branches, presents a s'ope of country varying from three to ten miles in width, of great fertility.' This valley extends from the Missouri far up into the interior, above the .Republican fork, and almost until you reach the point where the stream itself heads in the great table land on this side of the Rocky moun tains. Of its 'many tributaries, perhaps, the mos! inviting are the Vermillion, the two Blues, the Wakarussi, Turkey creek. the Republican fork, and Strangers creek Each of them affords a fine strip of luxu riant bottom land, free from overflow, and clothed uion the margin of the streams with abundance of timber. This part of Kansas, we regret to say is now in a laree measure covered by the ndian reservations, and some ol the very best locations are at present, and . have been for several years, cultivated by the Shawnees, Delawares, Pottawatomies, and few of the Sacs and Foxes. Thirdly, comes the Neosho Country," as it has long been called, being that part included in the valley of the Upper Neosho in the vicinity of Council Grove and in the plateaus of the affluents of the Up per and Lesser Arkansas, this, we in cline to think, surpasses at many , points, in the richness of its soil, even the bottom ands of the Kansas, although, generally, the margins between the sand hills and the river are narrower, and the timber more scanty, than in the former. But few settlers have as yet ventured so far out into Kansas, and consequently the favor able opportunities for locating claims are much greater there than in the immediate vicinity ot Kansas, bt. Joseph, Weston, or the several missions. In truth, we deem it one of the very best portions of Kansas, and are only surprised that of the thou sands who are now wending their way thither, more do not bend their steps to the valley of the Neosho, and the vicinity of Council Grove. The latter especially has some fine lands around it that would well repay, settlement and cultivation, and the location being upon the direct line of the Santa Fe trade, will always insure a mar ket for the productions of the farm and the comforts of a contact with more civilized life. la addition to the foregoing, there are also many spots of well watered and well timbered lands, with mud climate and ge nial soil upon the streams which empty into the Osaee river and which find their rise in the dividing ridge between the wa ters of the Kansas and those of the Arkan sas. Such, for instance, is the Neeharar and its tributaries of the Lower Blue, One hundred-and ten Creek, and Fish Creek, all of which present a most inviting ap pearance. ' . The other prominent feature of Kansas consists in the adaptation of a large sec tion of the country to the requirements of a pastoral life, and in this it is certainly distinct from any of our . Western States It embraces almost all theterritory which rises from the Kansas river and slopes off on the north to the Platte, and on the south to the waters of the Osage and the Arkan sas. Here the sou is chiefly of alight sandy character.whieh produces, however a most luxuriant growth of the coarser grasses, and presents in spring a brilliant appearance, owing to the numerous and varied flower, which grow there sponta neously. Farther west.the grasses change somewhat in character, becoming shorter and -more hardy; yet at the same time much more nutritious in character. This is the range of. the buffalo, and the cour. try which supports thousands of herds both summer and winter. Here are their great pasture grounds over which they roam, obtaining water from the ponds on the highlands, or else descending to the valleys to bathe in the streams. That this country will in time oecome the pastoral region of America, we have every reason to. believe. Its nutritious gramma grass, its favorable climate, its wide expanse of territory, allowing of free range, and its proximity to the oentral States of the Union will contribute to render it more desirable in this respect than any other spot on the continent. - Such as we have delineated them are the distinctive characteristics of that much talked of territory, Kansas. That it will be a great btate. and that too within a few years, all admit, but we incline to the opinion that the elements of its wealth in the future will be far different from what many persons now incline to think. The largest class of its populatio'n will be of a roving, pastoral, unsettled character, and what may be the effect of such a popula tion upon the social institutions ol the new State, no man can now tell. The Expedition to the Crimea. The expedition to the Crimea, if it sail ed on the 30th of August, as proposed, is probably now engaged in active oflensive operations. Since the siege of Antwerp, more than twenty years ago, no military or naval enterprise of equal magnitude has been undertaken. The late success at Bomarsund greatly increases the chenves of victory at Sebastapol, since it has dem onstrated that stone walls are not so im pregnable against wooden ones, as had been supposed. The expedition, more over, appears to have been organized with the greatest care. The land force, which accompanies the fleet, is more numerous than that which defeated Napoleon at Waterloo, and is composed, in great part, of soldiers superior in every respect, ex cept that of being veterans. It must be admitted, in justice to the allies, that though they move slowly, they act decis ively and cautiously. This fact affords a strong presumption that, in the present enterprise, they will also carry off the palm of victory. And if they subdue the Crimea and reduce Sebastopol, they will have won glory enough for one campaign. Sebastopol itself is probably one of the strongest fortresses in Europe. The town of that name lies on a narrow winding arm of the Black Sea, the hilly shores of which bristles with batteries, large and small. Hostile vessels, entering this estu ary, are subjected to a concentric fire from not less than nine points, besides the fire of the citadel, which, perched on a com manding elevation, covers the entire neigh borhood with its guns. The port of Se bastopol is a smaller branch of this arm of the sea, running at right angles to the larger one; and it is in this latter, and doubly sheltered harbor, that the Russian ships are moored. The town is built in the angle formed by the port and the arm of the sea, the navy yard, dry dock and batteries being on the opposite side of the canal-like-harbor. It will thus be seen that the place is almost impregnable on its sea front. But the allies, however, do not intend to run the risk involved in an attack of this kind only. Their plan is to assail Sebas topol, by land as well as by sea, and this scheme they will probably carry success fully out, unless on landing and reconnoi tering they find the place even more than impregnable than they have been led to suppose. In that case, they will content themselves with .holding the Ciimea. Should the rumor prove correct, that an advanced corps' has. already seized the isthmus connecting this peninsula with the main land, they will only have to over "come the army already iii the Crimea. If such an advanced guard has not preceded the main army, one of the first movements of the allies will be to seize that peninsula. In either event, the Russians will have to be s disciplined and skilful as they are brave, in order to maintain their stand against troops like the French, who ap pear, at Bomarsund, to have fulfilled the highest expectations farmed of them, and to have delighted the English in their dex terity, rapidity and cool courage. If, therefore, Sebastopol does not tan. there is little faith to be had in cause and effect , in military affairs, but everything must be set down to chance. Philadel phia Ledger. The Sandwich Islands. - Washington, Sept. 1 1. 1854. There was a protracted meeting of the Cabinet to-day, supposed to be in refer ence to the treaty just received tor the an nexation of the Sandwich Islands, and also the treaty with Dominica for a naval depot. - From a highly responsible source, l am favored with the following extract of a let ter, which possesses considerable interest at the present moment: "There are twelve islands in the Ha waiian group eight of them inhabited containing 6,100 square miles. They lie between 18 dee. 50 mm. and 22 deg. 20 min. north latitude, and 154 deg. 5J inin and 160 deg. 15 min. longitude west from Greenwich. The productions of the dif ferent islands depend upon position and elevation above the sea. All the tropical fruits and plants, either indigenous or in troduced Irom abroad, are abundant. On Hawaii, Kanai, and in some parts of Mani wheat. Irish potatoes, peaches, strawber ries, &c, of a fine quality, are easily rais ed. Grapes abound, but the manufacture of wine is prohibited. Sugar and coffee are likely to be the great staples ot the islands. The plantations are generally worked by Chinese coolies, who are em ployed tat the rate of three dollars per month iri China, and bound to service for a specified term of years. The Indigo plant grows wild in the greatest profusion, almost everywhere, and is as much of a nuisance as the Jamestown (gympson) weed in Virginia.. "The climate of the islands is mild and comparatively uniform. The ordinary yearly range at Honolula is twenty de grees. the extremes being 65 and 85 Far henheit. The mean temperature during the last year wan 75.5. While I am wri ting, (11 o'clock, A. M.,) the thermometer stands at 69 degrees.",. " A New, Way to Pay Postage A young gentleman having occasion to write a letter to a friend in the country,' sent it to the office by a German lap in his em ploy. Having no postage stamp, he gave him three cents to pay the postage, les terday the gentleman received a reply to his letter, and in it his friend requested that when he wrote again, if he had no stamps to send the letter without prepaying, as he baa no iues 01 paying ntteen cents post age on three coppers. The truth was that the lad, on the way to the office, had slip ped the cents into the envelope, and drop pea it into me oox. . The Scourges of two Summers. I Along our Southern Coast, the summer of last year will long be remembered. Few instances are there in history of a plague so. awful as that which desolated the cities of the Gulf and spread into the interior of the bordering regions. Thousands fell be neath the stroke of the destroyer, and for more than two months the woik of death went steadily but violently on. Amid it all, nothing was more significant than the calm and quiet way in which destruction did its office. There , were 110 unusual signs of nature. There were no attend ing paraphernalia of woe. Superstition could find no omens. The heavens hung out no signals, and the earth was placid in every landscape. And yet, what a harvest did the grave then gather! And for how many generations will its terrible effects be fell! We had hoped for a summer this year of unallayed jov. But other evils have been abroad. Not only has the cholera kept us in constant dread, but the whole country has suffered from at unexampled drouth. There is indeed a frequent cry of short crops, that selfishness starts for its own purposes, and the community have become hardened to the false alarm. Bui in this instance, the distress is genuine. There can be no doubt that our crops of corn, potatoes, &o., will fall far short of the ordinary yield. With our rapidly in creasing population and the demands for breadstuff abroad, the etill will be se riously felt. Thousands will be straitened in their means of living, and thousands more may want for daily bread. The die- ate of wisdom is now plain enough. We can lessen the misfortune by taking it in good time. Economy, temperance and care are always cardinal virtues, but this season, they come recommended by the force of sternest necessity. People of mod 1 11 1 . eraie means snouia nusband their re sources wisely, and as the poor, at such times, never fail to get poorer, they should now practise a little foresight, and guard themselves against impending misery. Common sense and the skill of thrift can do a great deal towards turning the edge ot misioitunes, and we hope that in th nstance they will use all their wisdom to the best advantage. IV. Y. Times. A Marvellous Rescue. On Wednesday alternoon, a little girl named Semira Prentice, six years old. who lives with Robert Getty on Ebgar's farm east of the Asylum, fell into a well sixty leet deep, bhe was probably playing in side of the curb and slipped off. Th bucket was up at the time; leaving the pas sage unobstructed from the mouth of the well to the top of the water in it. The wa ter was six feet deep, and the distance to it, as measured yesterday, was fifty-four feet 1 ins distance ine utile girl lell, passing through the water to the bottom; the latter fact being proved by the great quantity of sand in her hair when she was drawn up ana by her own expression in regard to her descent. When she rose to the sur face of the water she sustained herself by clinging to the walls, immediately crying. Pull me up. so loud as to be heard by M rs. Getty, the only person at home. The ady upon running to the well, and discov ering the child a position, lowered the bucket and told the little creature to get in; but no persuasion could induce her to do as directed. Beaching as high up on the rope as she could, she took hold of it, and the lady began to draw her up. When about hall the distance, buf not half th danger had been passed, the child said she could nt hold she must fall; but the as surance from above that it would be cer tain death to let go,, nerved her for a last effortr'and lightning her childish grasp with the strength of despair, up she came to the top, her head sinking down as if life had left her. In an hour afterwards she was "as lively as a cricket" unhurt even to the extent of a scratch on her person! I he presence of mind exhibited bv Mrs. Getty was no less extraordinary than, the courage of the little girl. The escape of the latter from death is a perfect marvel. She learned a lesson, however, that she will never forget, and we will state in her own language, for the benefit of other little people: "You always told me," said she to Mrs Getty, "that I'd fall into the well. but I couldn't believe it. You know best." Dayton Gazette. Delicate Case. Yesterday a lady of genteel appearance and address went into a shoe store in Broadway and wished to purchase a pair of shoes. The shop keeper displayed several pairs, and the lady seated herself to try them on; after which he turned to attend to another customer. Presently the lady said that none of the shoes fit her, and was about to leave the store, but the man discovered that some of the shoes were missing. He did not know how many, but the supply he had placed before her was sufficiently diminished for him to be assur ed of the fact. He accordingly accused her of taking some of the shoes. She de nied the charge, but her trepidation was sufficiently evident to justify the shop keep er instituting a search. He accordingly commenced the delicate business, and was soon successful. He found several pair of shoes suspended by hooks, which were attached to the lady s garter, evidently for such purposes. He identified his own shoes, and left hanging there two or three pairs which did not belong to him. The lady was softened to tears, ond plead with him not to expose or prosecute her, which he promised not to do. We learned the circumstance, and forbear names, as the lady is of undoubted respectability. This discovery should teach a wholesome les son. St. Louis Republican, 12th: Fatal Affray at Santa Fe. -A letter received at St. Louis from Santa Fe. an nounces that Mr. X.

The Guernsey Times is laboring hard to make the people believe that the Ne braska question is the only question to be decided at the coming election, and copies the following resolution passed at the Barnesville. Democratic Convention to sus tain its position: Resolved, That we will vote for no man who will not boldly and openly declare his adhesion to the Compromise Measures of 1850. the Baltimore Platform of 1852. and the Nebraska-Kansas Bill of 1854, and pledge himself to sustain the principles ol said enactments, and oppose all efforts for the repeal or abrogation of any one of them, come from what quarter they may. Now even supposing that resolution to refer to the action of the Democratic party in voting for State and County offices, a. well as a Congressman, (which it does not,) are there no other tests in it, but the Nebraska question? Is not the Compro mise Measures of 1850 and the Baltimore Platform of 1852, made tests as well as the Nebraska question? '- An,d yet the Times has the unblushing effrontery to publish such paragraphs as the following in glaring capitals, garbling the resolu tion quoted above to suit its own purposes Be it remembered, that the Barnesville Nebraska Convention made the Nebraska Bill the test of Democracy by resolving to "VOTE FOR NO MAN who will not boldly and openly give his adhesion" to that measurel THAT IS THE TEST! No man, except one who seeks to per- vent the meaning and language of that resolution can give it any other construc tion than that the delegates assembled at Barnesville would vote for no man as a candidate for Congress unless he would pledge himself to sustain the principles of those enactments." Put any other con struclion upon it, and nonesense is made of the resolution; for how could every candidate for State and County offices be called upon by that Convention to "pledge himself to sustain the principles of those enactments?" . r ; ; Mr. Albright. This gentleman has always manifested a disposition to make light of the people of this county. In his paper of July, 1852, he says: '. ;- V "A hungry set. The leaders of the Democracy of Monroe county always have their teeth sharp set for office. Those inveterate office seekers, Wm. C. Walton, and Wm. Okey have already announced themselves as candidates for Congress in this District." - : ;i Again, in his paper of the same month, in reply to a question contained in an arti cle that appeared in the "Spirit," Mr, Albright said: - ;i j -. . 'That question could only be asked where the unterrified are still voting for Gen. Jackson. - V' This insulting .taunt at the intelligence of the people of Monroe, unless we . are much mistaken, will be returned upon his own head. And we now ask the people of this county to remember that Mr. Al bright had such a poor opinion of their intelligence as to charge that they, were still voting for Gen. Jackson. ; And that those' whom he pleased to designate as leaders of the Democracy in this county, were "a hungry set," and '"always have their teeth sharp set for office." Whose teeth are now sharp set for office? And, as he has just paid our county a visit, does he now entertain the opinion that we are still voting for Gen.' Jackson? f;. J- 05Ex-Goy.

VT,,V"'' :tl . : QrThere was a slight rise in the river, last ' week. The Wheeling - papers aay there waa 20 inches in the channel, - Foreigner!, ; A number of papers, in the Fusion and Know-Nothing interest, are circulating the unmitigated falsehood that there ere in -the employ of the Federal Government only 767 native born Americans, to 2,484 foreigners, v The Washington Union, in order to set this matter, right before the people, publishes, from official statements, the number holding office' of American and foreign birth in the several .Depart ments of the General Government, as fol lows: .

It will be observed that the proportion of foreigners holding office in the State Department is larger than in the other Departments. , This is owing to the '.fact that a number of the consulates do inot pay a living compensation. They are consequently given to foreigners simply because nobody else will take them. The Baltimore Republican asks: f'Of the thirty-three Governors of the different States and Territories, how many are foreigners? ',We believe not one.' Of the five thousand members of the Legislatures of the different States, how many : were born abroad? ' Not fifty , "we venture to as sert. . How many members of the Senate of the United States? But one, and that one not less distinguished by his abilities as a scholar and a statesman than by his heroism as a soldier. "i How many of the two hundred end thirty-four members of the House of Representatives are foreign born? Not d single member. Of the Su- ; preme Bench? Not one. Of the Judicia ry of the. different States? Few, if any." Why, then, all this talk and flurry about foreigners?' It is simply tht a ne w hobby may be started on which designing men may ride into office. -.. ' , ; Judge Ifforris. ; In speaking of the Democratic. candU r date for Supreme Judge, Shepard F. Nor ris, the McConnellsville Enquirer, pays lim the following just tribute: . . v "we suppose mere nas not been a can did ate ol the Democratic party, for years, neither under the present nor former mode bf selecting our Judicial officers, to whom so tittle objection has been urged as to his qualifications for Supreme Judge,! aa the individual who is now the candidate of Ins party for that responsible position. From the slight acquaintance we have with Judge , Norris, and , from the assurance given us by those on whose judgment and word we can rely, we believe the interests of the public, no matter what character they may assume, if entrusted to his man agement, will be carefully guarded.- : Hie qualifications for the highest judicial posi tion in the btate we believe have not been called in question , even by those who ar found the most unscrupulous in opposing his election. His industry and fidelity as a public officer, and the efficiency - with which he has heretofore-filled important trusts, ; have secured him not . only - the" friendly but the zealous, the enthusiastic support of those who have been his sup porters. Gentlemanly deportment as a man, his scrupulous integrity as a citizen and his straight forward consistent devo tion to the public welfare, are recognized. and acknowledged by all who enjoy, his immediate acquaintance.
