Por the Spirit of Democracy. - ?. ; Divisions among Men. The social walks of life are interrupted in a;thousand ways. Every lane of life, which "might lead to human happiness is obstructed' in somej'orm or other. In large Cities where wealth is abundant, aristocracies grow up, aud personal worth is disregarded money supplies the place of good character. '. ; Distinctions arc made accordingly iu society; one claiming supe riority over another, in proportion to the greater number of his dollars; thereby creating heart-burnings, jealousy, strife and envy, which give rise to most of the evils which .afflict, society.;; This aristoc racy .is hped by : villages, and thus it runs through all the circles,, of society. . This principle checks the growth of morals, because it gives wealth a ficticious superi ority over real personal worth, and makes money the incentive of ambition. Religion itself, divides our foolish race iuto countless madened factions. Aud religionists in place of imitating the lamb like example of their great Master and patron, pn account of a difference of opin ion on some abstraction in theology, rush wildly on each other with torch and sword, and murder millions of their brothers. , .The political divisions among men, are most likely now to shock the world, and open a new the flood gat.s of human blood. The progressive spirit of repub licanism, has long since alarmed the crown ed heads of earth. And of course, it Li their interest, to check its rapid progress. Argument cannot do it'; because reason condemns them. Consequently force must be resorted to. Diplomacy and trickery will be the prelude to the arguments whieh tyrants use through the iron-tongued can nous mouth. Look back through historv, when Napoleon proposed simply to change the currents of favored blood, from royal to plebeian veins, and make a new chan nel for the bark of State; every monarch in tl-e world, not intimidated by the gran- ueur 01 nis prowess, drove tncir armies into the field, to cheek the encroachments of the daring corporal of Corsica. To check this encroachment, Lodi, Areola and Marengo echoed back the stern reply to the thunder of battle; King rale jure dii'ino. And the last argameut, whieh was made on the bloody rostrum at Water loo, sustained the preposterous pretensions of royalty . At Fleurus Friedlaud, Eylau, Austerlila, aud the gloomy forest of Jena, the foolish sohlierv from theGommon walks of life shed their blood to prove that a peculiar virtue dwelt iu the veins of here ditary inonarchs, and gave them a divine right to rule and oppress mankind. When Cromwell laughed at the idea of royal blood and "made jestof the dignity whieh doth hedge a King," handed Charles down from the throne to the enraged people, and usurped his place, the crowns of Eu rope seemed to rust, and the heads that filled them, were put together to crush the usurper' aud restore royalty. . . When Poland begau to dream of lib erty, aud assert that "man was man and uothiug more uor less;" she was divided by writ of partition and made extinct. Her heroes fell and "liberty shrieked." Hungary met a worse fate. Our country is young, powerful aud prosperous. . . Let us not imitate the follies of the old. world iu its dotage.. Let us not become iutoxicated with success, aud in a fit of political delirium tremens, im agine our best friends our worst enemies, and our worst enemies our best friends. And iu . our madness, commit au act of suicide. which 'will forever blast the hope of the world, of free government. I shall not enumerate the thousands of instances of royal diplomacies, intrigues and cruellies, to crush the growiug spirit of free government, A hiut to the intel ligent reader, is enough to make him think. , You may believe it or not, the jealousy of every civilized monarch on earth is now directed against our own free, happy, prosperous country. And to defeat our united strength, would be im possible. Hence, years ago, a fire-brand was-;.thrown into the great magazine of liberty in this country, for the purpose of blowing : asunder the nnity of feeling among .the people, which mast exist in any country to make it formidable. - Abolitionism was introduced by British influence: ' And it is well known that a1 Mr. Thomson, an iuflamatory orator, was1 sent to this country, to get' up ' abolition societies, to create divisions between the North and the South. However, the wickedness of Garrison, and his associ ates, (some in this country) rendered this project odious to the people, and the real object apparent.. That England was in sincere in her pretended efforts to relieve the'eolored man, is too apparent to re quire argument. If she was sincere, why did 6he not prevent the introduction of slavery in this country, wheu she had the power? And why did she not abolish it, when she had the power? AVhy has she resisted the" burning appeals of Ireland, 6tep by step iu her efforts to throw off her yoke and approach the standard of freemen? 1 Can we not see that her pre tensions are false, and her pretended sym pathy with the slave of this country only iutended to divide our people by sectional lines! In out "bodypolitic," the North" is iour strong right arm. Strike it off, by alienating the affections of the North from the South, the East or West, and we pre sent" to the 'world ft cripple, such as beg at the gates of power. The whole body suffers alike the loss of a single member. Why is 'it ' that so many of our people woald iAlc-the hi, that a bnbble, caused by-th$ agitation' might swtm ?- '-0 : 1 Aitatiqus among mewseeni to beperi bdicaF, arid always disastrous in propor tion their folly." The present is the most strange that ever shocked the moral sen sibilities of thinking ' men, pr1 dyed the earth red, with human blood. The strong est powers of Europeare at war, murder inghundredsof thousands of men. Burn ing and sacking cities and devastating whota districts of country, to settle the q4estkm'as to who shall visit and gaze ujion a pebble in Palestine:' : - ' ; . The ' wars, of .Europe, - bloody as they may be, are not fraught with consequences half so direful,' and distructive to the real rights of man, as the sectional dissensions among our own people at home'. WThy are we not content to be prosperous, and satisfied to be happy ? " . D. II. WIRE. Proceedings ot'tlio ".HonrocConn ty Teachers' Association." -Monday-, Nov. 5th, 1S55, ) - - U o'clock, P.

The superiority of American in ventive genius, not only over that of our English progenitors, but iudeed of all other nations has become too tangible to be disputed. - It was notorious at the World's Fair in London, that the Amer icans far outstriped all others in the use ful inventions which they supplied.

Leavenworth, K. T., October, 18, 1855. J , "Elections have been all the go in this Territory for the last three weeks. We have had three within that time two for Delegates to Congress, and one to fix the county seat in this county. These elections have deeply interested the citizens of the Territory to say nothing about those of Missouri, and the "rest of mankind." "Gen Whitfield received at the election held on the 1st Monday of the month(un der the law of the famous Kansas-Missouri Legislature) 2,760 votes. No one here doubts that at least one thousand of these votes were cast by nonresidents,Indians,&c. Indeed many contend, with great plausibil ity, that he did not receive over 1000 le gal votes. The citizens keep a sharp eye on these things. They begin to feel they have rights in our elections that must and shall be respected. They arc carefully canvassing the poll books, everywhere, with a view to satisfy the next Congress of the exact number of legal voles he did receive. They are in earnest in the mat ter now, and determined to satisfy those who have a right to know, that a large majority of the actual citizen of the Ter ritory are in favor of its being a free State. No man, here, whose opinion is worth anything, would hazard his reputation by asserting that the friends of slavery are in the ascendant. Candid pro-Slavery men coucede this. "But the question is left no longer in doubt since the election held on the sec ond Tuesday of this month, under what we call here, the peopWs convention. The whole returns of this election have not yet been received, but those from 22 out of 51precincts or townships, show that Gov. Reeder received 2135 votes, and the re turns from the balance of the Territory will undoubtedly increase his votes to up wards of three thousand thus beating Whitfield several hundred votes, including Missourians, Indians and all! It will be remembered that the at Reeder election no I one was Permitted to vote who had not been a resident of the Territory thirty days bejore the election thus excluding any possibility of unfairness in this respect. "Some curious developments were bro't out by these elections as compared with that held for members of the Legislature this spring. For instance, at the spring election the pro Slavery candidates re ceived at this place over eight hundred votes, and at Lawrence ciyht hundred andseven-ty-eiyht at the recent Congressional elec tion Whitfield received here 239 and at Lawrence forty-two votes. Now, either there has beeu a very raoid emigration of the pro Slavery men, from Lawrence and Leavenworth, since the spring election, or there was an enormously large bogus vote polled at both places on that occa sion 1 Reeder received at Lajvrence 525 votes and at Leavensworth 503 votes. "But we have had a third election in this county, for the purpose of fixing the county seat, which has produced some rich developments, in connection with this matter of non residing, or Missouri voting, and has caused no little annoyance to the pro Slavery men in this vicinity. "There were three or four contestants for the county seat Leavensworth, Dela ware, and Kickapoo. The Leaven worth- ers had no fears of the result at this elec- tioa' ""much as they had more bonafde Tf rTiv thin tit 1 vs gk li a ziAiinrv nn r to together. They voted 725 voles all of which, by the way, were undoubtedly legal in favor of Leavenworth as the county seat. You may imagine a perfect surprise of our good denizens, to learn that Delaware, having a few cabins in the so-called city, and not exceeding sixty le gal voters in the the towuship, rolled . up EIGHT HUNDRED AND NINETY-SEVEN VOTES iu favor of erecting the couuty scat therel while Kiekapoo, voted eiout hundred and tuirty-eight votes for that place as the county seat! Kickapoo, at the Whit- nemeieenoa,na'i ponea 101 votes many 01 whom were JVJissounans and Delaware 239; two-thirds of this uuinber were of the same interesting clas3 of pcoplc. Eveu the pro Slavery men regarded this as too much of a good tidug! The "Herald" (the pro Slavery organ here) speaks of the matter as if it had never heard of Missouri intervention in the Ter ritory before. It deprecates their uiter ference as much unjustifiable in "a merely loeal question," hopes for the sake of "the cause" it may not be repeated, and most sturdily speaks but its determination to have this election contested. It has a long and lacryinose article on the subject, in which it quotes handbills and the bor der newspapers of Missouri to prove that the whole programme was arranged in advance; that the inducement of free fer ries to both places was held out that a Public Parbeeue was offered at one of the places, a Cotillion Party at the other, and that Gov. Shannon was booked for a speech at both! " In fact, every thing that could be made to draw, was resorted to iby our ingenious and public-spirited neighbors over the river! "Do you wondcr.in view of such things that a stroug.not to say bitter, anti-slavery feeliug prevails among all respectable and fair-minded men iu this Territory? Much of this feeliug is the result of the rash and ill devised measures of the pro-slavery meu. If they had been satisfied with an equality of rights in the Territory, little or none of this feeling would have been engendered. The mass bf " the people would have been satisfied with the deci sion of a majority, whether it had been for or against slavery. Of course from this remark I exclude the abolitiouists proper, but they constitute but a small proportion of the auti-slavery party as it is now con stituted, t ' ' "These acts and similar ones, constant ly occurring: and above all, the abomina ble and unconstitutional legislation of the Missouri-Kansas Legislature has ir reparably damaged the pro-slavery cause, and wade enemies of friends. ud . well wishers. The . Territorial, Register" of this place, very correctly, I think, predicts that there will be no further efforts made to rally a pro-slavery party in this coun ty, after the ridiculous interference, 1 by outsiders, in the matter of the county seat. , , ? "The project of the covention to form a State Convention, is highly popular with the people. Many regard this as the on ly mode of relieving the Territory from its present anomalous and degraded condition. The admission of Gov. Reeder iuto Gon gress, as Delegate, will afford but partial relief. The odious laws and officials ap pointed by the Legislature would still re main. It needed the healthful power of the people to sweep these laws from the Statute Book, and these unpopular offi cials from the present position. Real "Squatter Sovereignty" uot the spurious Missouri article is the only penanceafor these monstrous evils. My word for it, the remedy will be applied at the. very first opportunity! "The Territorial Convention meets ou the 4th Tuesday of this month. Dele gates were elected in every county, at the late Congressional election. It is inten ded to form the State Constitution, be tween this and December, in time to be submitted to Congress early in the ses sion. Gov. Reeder will be the bearer of the Constitution aud the petition of the people, for its acecptaucc to Congress. "God grant success to this application aud to Law and to Right and tLi3 Territory!

It is of in terest at the present time for reference, and also as showing the progress of the State population. Tiffin, the first Gov ernor received every vote that was cast.

Giddings Thinks about Burying the Dead. This High Priest of Abolitionism, lectured at Hon rellsville, a few days since, and to convince his auditory of the intense hatred which the people of Ohio bore towards Slave holders, related in proof the following fact; ' "A year or two since,' said M. Giddings, "a gentleman of Kentucky followed his ruuaway slave into Ohio, and 'into the town where I live, and there, the master while endeavoring to arrest his human chattel, was killed1 by the' slave, and the slave by himJ We took np the sooty African, and gave him the rites of Chris tian burial but the master we left to rot where he fell, aud there he remained until the body stunk, and at last the friends of the deceased came from Kentucky, and conveyed it home." So said Joshna R. Giddiugs man who pretends to bare more humanity, in his composition than any other man. Comment is unnecessary. Rock. American. . ; , ELECTION NEWS. NEW YORK ELECTION. N. Y. Nov. 7.
