Fight Between Lane's Men and the
Government Troops!-Three Dragoons
[From the St. Louis Democrat.]
l'y passengers from Kansas, who ar
rived last evening, we have obtained
the following intelligence:
On Friday, the 25th ult., news reach
ed lcavcnw orth that an engagement
had taken place between the troops un
der (Jon. Lane, at ugar Mound, and a
company of U. H. dragoons. The offi
cers ordered (Jen. I,ane to surrender
himself and men to tho Tnited States
authorities, which ho refused to do,
when the dragoons charged upon the
troops and were repulsed, with a loss of
three of their number.
I'inding themselves too weak to dis
lodge Lan, the dragoons retired, and
an express was dispatched to (Jov. Den
ver for reinforcements. The Governor
immediately ordered three companies of
drag-ions to the seat of war, and they
pa-sed through Shawnee on Saturday,
the 2Gth. It was expected there would
be bloody work.
As soon as news of the engagement
was received by the people, they com
menced organizing in military compa
nies, and were hurrying forward to as
sist Lane. It was expected before the
dragoons would arrive that Lane would
be reinforced by some 2,500 men. The
most intense excitement prevailed.
One of the gentlemen who passed
through Law rence, on Friday, saw Gen.
Lane and (Jov. llobinson in that town.
They were mounted and completely
armed, and appeared much excited.
They wero addressing the people, who
stirrouiiuod them in great numbers,
and urged them to maintain their rights
and succor their friends. The people
of Lawrence were preparing to take
the field. John Calhoun had lied from
the Territory, and reported himself as
going to Springfield, Illinois.
On the clay of the election, no polls
were open in llourbou county, as the
Free State men refused to vote.
The Washington correspondent of
the New York Times telegraphs the
following :
From several private letters from re
liable sources, to late dates, just receiv
ed hero from Kansas, I gather a number
of facts of much interest.
One letter, from near the Missouri
oonier, limy minimis ine ueaill 01 llie
notorious Geo. V'. Clark, the murderer
of Hurler.
On the inst. the difficulty at Fort
Scott was still progressing. Clark was
ut the head of the Pro-Slavery force
when he was killed. Seven Pro-Slavery
men had fallen nt last accounts, and the
greatest excitement prevailed
Another prominent man writes that
Calhoun ran neve r set up his Lecomp
ton Governir.cr.t in that Territory with
less than twenty thousand federal troop:

Calhoun had become so greatly alarm
ed for his personal safety, that he had

I have co!ieised with several nic'-en-,-.
h who Irive jii"t urrived from the
fell of action. They report that the
l'ro-Slavcry party had taken Homo five
or six I've State men, and had them
confine 1 in Fort Scott. A partyof sev
enteen Free State men went on a trip of
observation, to ascertain the condition
of our fiiends, Ae., and just as they
wero starting towards tho Free State
camp, (six miles distant,) somo hundred
or more of the 1 ro-SIavery party came
in pursuit, and after a long run, they
captured three of tho Free State men,
avid now hold them as prisoners. l!otli
parties wero mounted. In the after
noon, about one hundred and forty of
the l'ro-Slavcry party, paid a visit to the
Freo State camp, Sue;.ir Mound. They
came with a whito flag; a consultation
took place and both parties took a
fighting position. In a short time the
ruffians divided their forces with the in
tention of surrounding tho Freo State
camp; orders were given for the Sharp's
rifles to play upon them; those who
had only common rines, yc., wero in
a log house, nnd the Sharp's rifles in
the timber. The fire commenced, nnd
after a few rounds from the Sharp's
rifles, the ruffians fled with the great
est dispatch into a moro safe retreat
The deputy V. S. Marshal, who led the
ruffians, was shot m tho breast
thought to be dangerous; another man
had his hand torn off, and a third, his
arm shot several horse were also
shot in the conflict. The Free State
men had about 70 men, nnd only nine
of thein, with Sharp's rifles, drove the
cnfiny nway. Up to this time, this is
the only fighting wo have heard of.
A young man, who lives in this
neighborhood, shot himself in taking
bis gun out of the wagon he lias since
died. His name is Calvin Eaton, or
Cass Eaton, as ho is familiarly called.
Mr. I'liillips, of tho N. Y. Tribune,
passed through here yesterday, en route
for the war. He reported that tho Uni
ted States troops had crossed tho Kan
sas river, and wero en route to Fort
Scott. A company of thirty mounted
men lrom 1 rairie City passed throudi
yesterday, for Fort Scott. This com
pany will be a strong accession, as they
have a good many Sharp's a valuable
article iu our Prairie warfare. The
Missourians are as frightened of them
as they aro of the name of "Old
Tuesday Morning, Dec. 22.
I have just conversed with a friend
who camo iu last night. He reports
that on Tuesday evening, about It) o'
clock, the Free State men discovered
that the United States troops had en
camped about three miles from their
camp. It was thought prudent to pull
up stakes and change cjuarters. At
one o'clock the same night they moved
their encampment some fifteen miles.
What will bo done now, is unknown.
The intention was to attack Fort Scott
on the day following and recover those
whom tho ruffians have in confinement.
It was not the Deputy-Marshal who was
shot, but a man of the same name, a
relative of his, named Little.

Dec. 30. Tho War
Department has received advices to the
18th October, from Lieut, liealo, in
charge of the mail roads from Fort De

ho announces his arrival in California.
The expedition hss met with tho most
complete success, and a fine wagon road
from New Mexico to California has been
established. An important part of the
operations has been effected by the cam
els, which were (subjected to trials that
no other animal could possibly endure;
yet Lieut. Beale terminated his labors
without tho loss of a single camel, but
they are reported, by those who eaw
them in Texas, to bo in as good condi

[Correspondence of N. Y. Evening Post.
BOSTON, Dec. 30.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of
learning from Senator Sumner'a own
lips that he has nointention of resigning
his seat in the Senate. There is not a
man in Massachusetts, with heart and
head enough to fill Mr. Sumner's place,
who docs not earnestly wish that he
may retain it, though he could not
epeak another word in it. They would
as soon level Uunker Hill, because that
is silent. His history talks. He re
ceived letters from South Carolina,
warning him that tho "honor" of that
ehivalrie State would require more of
his blood if he took his neat at this session.

A letter was received on Monday by
Ilev. Dr. Murray, of Elizabeth, N. J.,

tee Third Puy,
ami Mar I its
According to promise wo present our
readers this week, with tho opening
chapter of tho new Story, written for
our paper by Mrs. Mauy Heavers.
Tho first chapter is very well written,
and tho Story will be found to increase
in interest as it proceeds, and tho var
ious characters are brought upon the
scene. Wo predict that it, will add
much to tho literary reputation of the
young and gifted author.
In conseipucmo of tho extremo scar
city ot money jmong laruicrs, arising
in part from tin u mutual lateness of tho
Fork season, as well as the goncral em
barrassment in noncy matters, we havo
decided to male a slight modification
of our rule inregard to Advance Pay
ments, by e.xlmdinij the time to the tl of
Mareh next, r all whoso subscriptions
cxpiro on the 1st of January. Wc have
no doubt io majority of thoso who
have not reicwed, would willingly have
done so, but havo been prevented by the
causes referred to, and wo hope this ex
tension wil enablo them to renew by
tho time named. We shall therefore
continue lo Bend the paper until the
1st of Mrch, to all who do not return
the next number, and we will conside
payments mado by that time ns in ad
vance. Those who do not wish to con
tinue the paper, on these terms, will
please signify their wishes by sending
back the next No.
Thoso who do not return tho paper,
will bo considered as accepting our pro
position. All papers sent by mail, and
not renewed by the 1st of March, will
positively be stopped at that time.
Civil War Actually Begun.
It will be seen by our latest advices
from Kansas, that an engagement has
actually taken place between the Terri
torial force, under command of Gen.
Lane, and the United States troops.
Tho fight was at Sugar Mound, where
Lane hud entrenched himself, and re
sulted in the repulse of the Government
dragoons, with tho loss of three men
Reinforcements had been asked from
Acting-Governor Denver; und it is al
so reported that Gov. Robinson, as w ell
as Gen. Lane, were urging their friends
at Lawrence to arm and repair to the
scene of action. Tho most intense ex
citement prevailed, and a more serious
engagement was anticipated. Fuller
details of this unfortunato affair will be
awaited with rnxicty.
Calhoun, the chief of tho Lceomp
ton conspirators', has sought safety by
flight from tho Territory. Wo suspect
Kansas will never hereafter bo a desira
ble country for him to livo in.
The Legislature.
This body doubtless assembled on
Monday, but owing to tho failure of the
mail on Tuesday evening, wo have no
account of its organization. Tho Dem
ocrats having a majority in both Houses,
of course elected tho officers. From
the Cincinnati papers of Monday we
learn that Ciiaui.es W. Plair of Clin
ton, was nominated by the Democrat
ic caucus for Speaker of tho Senate;
Wm. Woods of Ljeking; for Speaker of
the House, and Jou.f i V. Kkvs, for
Clerk of tho House.
Was to re-asseiiiblo on Monday, after
the holiday recess. Wo havo no ac
count of the proceedings, but as the
ciciting news from Kansas must have
reached Washington on that day, they
were probably interesting. Wo fchall
keep our readers well posted in regard
to everything of importance that trans
pires at tho seat of Government.
Plain Talk. The Richmond South
thus expresses its opinion of the sincer
ity and honesty of thoso Northern men
who pride themselves upon being the
special friends of the South :
So Mr. Poug'nB has shown his cloven
foot to the South at last. I never be
lieved he was whole fooied. All that
lie has ever dune has been to cajole the
South to choosu butween eviU, to take
tho best bhe can get, to Bugar over
nauseous pills and bribe the South
to swlloMf them. I never had confi
dence in him. I haue no t iiiifideme in
any mar North of M.imon and Vieon'i.
Thoy cannot be our friends and be
honest. The interests of tho two sec
tions ars antagonize. The Northern
man w ho goes lor our interest, neeesna
rily goes against tho interoot of tho
North, his country, and I can have no
confidence in a traitor, uo matter how
high is his price.
"Kansas Shrieking"--Then and Now.
It is but a few brief wei Is, pays the
Cincinnati (Wetle, finro the Democrat
ic pay-'-is, pll over the country, ex
pressed the alrongcst aversion and eon-te-.npt
f.r what they wen pl-'.-i.-ivl to
term "Kansas Shrieking." Every ac
count from that quarter which did not
represent affairs ns going on smoothly,
swimmingly, and surely, towards a final
settlement, on Administration principles,
was regarded ns wholly fabrication and
fraud, got up by Pluck Republicans, for
party effecf. The narrative of the grand
Missouri foray, which controlled tho
firnt Territorial election, though defi.
nitcly proved before a Commission of
the popular branch of Congress, was
never conceded, or at lea thought of
sufficient conserjurnco to justify any
complaint on tho part of tho real peo
ple of Kansan, and least of all, to enti
tle them to resist tho outrageous enact
ments of tho bogus legislature. From
that day to this, almost, the wrongs of
tho people, wWo oppressors havo had
on their side all the power of tho fed
eral government, havo boen constantly
sneered at by obsequious Administra
tion organs. Murder, rapine, arson,
and violence of every description,' have
awakened no sympathy in tho minds of
these men, whoso motto has been, "The
party, right or wrong."
Put thero has eomo a change, A
party rebellion has commenced. A
regular stampede is going on from the
Administration ranis. The policy of
Mr. BtTHANAN has not varied mate
rially from what his opponents charged
that it would be, throughout the Presi
dential campaign. Thero was every
reason to expect him to bo a serviceable
instrument in the hands that now com
mand, his services. Tho Democratic
leaders of the North, in fact, seem to
have determined to sustain him in this
ultra-Southern course, and to disregard
or sneer at tho rights of tlio peoplo of
Kansas, to the bitter end. What mo
tive lias iuduccd the sudden change wc
havo witnessed, the almost universal de
sertion of tho Administration in tho
North, at this juncture, is not, perhaps,
so great a "mystery" as might at first
appear. Put of that wo do not propose
to speak. Tho change of tone, the
complete revolution, which has taken
place on this Bubjeet, would certainly
seem to bo otic of the most strikin
events of the day.
All through tho campaign last Fall,
tho Columbus Statesman, for instance,
was exceedingly vigilant in its attempts
to make out that all the troubles in
Kansns, so far as thero were any, wero
tho fault of tho "factious majority."
It ignored border ruffianism, and recog
nized as perfectly legitimate the Gov
ernment inaugurated by that -power.
Kansas correspondents, who reported
frauds or violence, were snccringly dis
Now, tho whole matter is reversed.
The recent election in Kansas affords
the Statesman occasion for shrieks as
thrill and tcrrifio as it wa3 wont to de
nounce in thoso days; when the outrages
were tenfold greater, and the frauds and
wrongs a hundred times more impor
tant. Now it not only publishes Free
State letters, but endorses what it used
to vilify, as perfectly veracious and re
liable. Here is a specimen, from the
pen of a "sound National Democrat,"
whoso "services to tho Democracy of
this Stato in the Presidential canvass
which carried Mr. Puciianan, were con
spicuous and efficient" :

Democrats refused to vote. At Kieka

point iii notoriouti for f rain In, and cannot
legally poll at any time 400 votes. It
is almost unanimously Pro-Slavery

town, and it is clearly ascertained that
many voted at least a half dozen of

Now, this petty affair, disgraceful
enough iu itself, but which cannot have
any practical effect, holds no compari
son to the grand invasions of other days,
which Democratic Administrations have
winked at, whose, doings they have rati
fied, whose "authority" thoy have en
forced, and whoso dominion Mr. Pl'cii
AN an is now striving to make perma
nent, by forcing tho Lceompton Consti
tution through Congress. And yet this
"shrieking" Democrat very coolly adds
"That Congrci-s will refuse to admit,
when the facts aro presented, I do not
doubt." If such bo the cane, the char
acter of "National Democrats" niut.t
have undergone some important change,
within the last few weeks. Xom ver
rons. Tho Charleston Mercury is rabidly
ferocious on DortiLAa. It makes against
hiui tho horrible assertion, that he nev
er expected Kansas to be brought into
the Union as a Slave State! Is it pos
sible? It also "regrets to see that he
has becu treated with respect and con
sideration, aye conciliated," and it in
"sorry that ha has not been treated
with the scorn and contempt bo de
serves, at the ban Is of all true and tarn
est Southeru men."

The eleik of tho Lc:'i 1 n f i v 0 Council,

writes: "Gen. Df.nvhi has arrived.

If this is true, thero will be another
Kansas Governor to bo removed soon.
Gen. Walker in Washington.
New Yoiik, Dec. 30. Gen. Walker
reached Washington last cyening, in
company with Marshal Rynders.
Ho immediately proceeded to the
Stato Department, where he had an in
terview w ith the Secretary of State, and
whs formally surrendered.
Gen. Cass, however, slated that he
had no directions to give concerning
Gen. Walker. It was only through
the Judiciary that ho could be held to
answer any charges brought against
Gen. Walker and bis escort retired,
the former nt liberty to go where bis
inclination might lead.
It is reported, however, that a pro
cess will be issued to bring him to trial
for violating the Neutrality laws.
The Cabinet held a consultation yes
terday, with regard to tho conduct of
Com. Paulding in securing Walker and
bis men, at which tho Commodore's
dispatches were read.
Capt. Encrles expects to return to the
Homo Squadron sometime in the month
of January.
It is positively asserted that Coinnio
lorc Paulding will be recalled.
Many distinguished gentlemen have
called upon Gen. Walker. Nothing
is known of his further movements. It
is his intention at tho proper time, to
ask tho Government to reinstate him in
the position from which ho was re
cently removed by Com. Paulding.
Poor Puchanan's party is falling to
pieces faster than did that of poor
Pierce. Pierce's trouble commenced in
New York, but he had the first Congress
of his Administration with him. Puch
anan is already involved in tho im
broglio of New York politics irretrieva
bly; and the sachems of Tammany Hall
have refused to permit that sole classic
institution, of the Democracy, to give
the prestige of its name to a mcctin"
endorsing him. And as for Congress, it
is extremely doubtful whether tho Presi
dent, with all his reserved patronage, to
hark him in tho way of direct and indi
rect bribery, can use a majority f cith
er House, while.it appears certain that
in tho next Congress, hi.? supporters will
find themselves in a miserable-minority.
- Cin. Commercial.
I)K.VTH-Pf:n Follies. The Charles
ton Mercury belabors tho practice of
manumitting slaves by will as "a death
bed folly," committed only by men in
their "second childhood," (such men
for instance, as George Washington,)
and thinks that the Southern States
ought to interfere by legislation to pre
vent such thiuss. Slaves so manumitted
arc so many men removed ' from the
industry of the State" it says, and it
regards their manumission as "a wanton
destruction of property." It seems, then,
that according to tho extreme South
ern codo of morals, a man has no right
to do with his property as Lo pleases.
The J'utrie states that tho American
engineers who undertook, by means of
a special apparatus, to raise the Rus
sian ships-of-war sunk in the harbor of
Sebastopol, have given it up and return
ed to Constantinople, declaring that
their contract cannot be performed, ex
cept at an enormously disproportionate
cost. It appears that tho river Teher
naya has brought down immense quan
tities of silt and gravel, which being
accumulated in the harbor, the ships
are now imbedded in this deposit, and
cannot, without much labor, bo extricated.
