Cruelties In Kansas.
We lake the following from Col, Lane's
speech at Indianapolis, as reported by the
journals of that city. . All these atrocities
vere winked at by President Pierce ana the
officers of the .General . Governmenw and
there was no ordering out of the Uv S. army
to arrest- the ffiofaefers, and, no enort made
to brinir them to Dunishment. But new
oiieriu iiuui's is wumiueu nu iwoto is nou
eriainty by whofr it was done, but there
being fl surmise that ft was dofle by some
rreesoiler. the whole power or tna general
Government there is directed to arrest, the
supposed perpetrators. This is a specimen

He then mentioned some of , the oiuelties
practiced oppn (he free Sta(e rrieh by the
Border ,. Ruffians. Tarring sod feathering
men, especially preachers, ho said, seemed
to be a common snrtusement. He raw the
preacher who bad been tarred, feathered
and aenl down the Missouri river. Of ail
disgusting exhibitions a man with a coat of
tar and feathers was the worst.' He 'bad
seer) it once and he never wanted to see It
again. A man was deformed out of all
human shape. , To see a human being
rolling in a mass devoid. even of the ap-.
pearance of humanity, was terrible, cut to
that odioua disgusting torture a preacher of
the gospel was subjected,' becao.se he bad
said he was for making Kansas a free State.
After this "coat" bad been spread Of or him,

Fresh Fralu la llertnetlcally Settled
Public attention was vefv tenerallv called
to this- subject last year by Atinvs, Bout
bam At Co,, of Philadelphia, manufacturers
of "Arthur's Patent Self-Sealing Cans and
Jars," arid large numbers of fa'miliea all
over the country were Induced to try exper
iments, not only with Arthur's ' Cans, bat
with a variety of other cans offered to their
notice. Arthur's Can, which is the simplest
in construction ' and the easiest to uso, Is
moreover the only one that ire have ever
seen, with a aioele exception, that Is con
structed on rlgbi scientific principles. In
the exception referred to, the can itself Is In
ill respects 1ms desirable, and : few would
have any hesitation In choosing between
them. Arthur's cart Is entirely open at the
top, with achaanel around the mouth j filled
with cement. It Is sealed by heating' the
lid and pressing ii into this cement, which
Is done In a moment. The cement Is In
the channel wheo the can Is sold. The
cans sustain no injury in opening, and may
be used yeat after year. They are made of
unr and also ot fire-proof eariern ware.
v.We have Hhus particularly referred to ibis
can that our readers may know how (o dis
tingtiish it from all others..- It is, without
doubt, the best yet offered to ym public, and
In an article of this kind only the-best should
be taken. - We have used them ourselves,
and know their quality,. So have scores of
our friends. Mr. Godey, of the Lady's
Book, good authority, as eveiy one knows,
thus speaks on tho subject! ' ''
There was a Variety of Self-Sealing
Cans offered ,io the public. last year, and
there will, in alb probability, bo a greater
number (during the coming season. Not
one that we have seen beats any comparison,
in our estimation, with 'Arthur's;' andur
advice to all is, to try oo other can or jar
next .year7. This ono will certainly keep
fruit precisely in the condition In which it
is sealed up , is simple In construction, and
easy of use. and cannot we believe, be equal;
i t, it i t . A.
'ou'i" 7
for thtf porpoBe of keeping fruit In a fresh
condition by hermetically sealing." '
Fruits put up In hermetically sealed ves
sels are, as all who have osed them know,
In every res"peci .superior to those put in the
old fashioned wav. ' The process Is,' more
over, easier and cheaper.- No housekeoper
who has onCe tried the new method, will
ever go bick io the dd ,
Vy e hate presented this matter n tittle
prominently because It is one 1n which al
most every body has an Interest. ; In call
ing attention to so admirable an invention,

Th Purchase of Washlnfeidri's
Farm The Other Side.
The moat cruel humbug ever attempted,-)
to wheedle a gonerous people out of their
money is the appeal for the purchase of
Washington's farm. If we were to buy It,
what on . earth ahould we do lit " Aa aad as
he dilapidation is now, under the gross peg
ect of Its sordid owner, ii would be even
worsowhen owned by the nation;
' We starii secorid to none in reverence for
the sainted Washington, and (or his mortal
remains wa would pay tho price bis unwor

For the farm we bate tta reverence and
no desire. In this we follow the example
of the ftf r. Washington, who (Hereupon lives

structure where no man seeth. in the wilds
of Mount Vernon. , The piece moat easy of

A GalitD FabcS Joltit ' Boll Maxiwo
am Asa or' HintsiLF.-We clio the follow
ing ludrlcrous description of proclaiming
peace fn London, Irom the- correspondence
or the Philadelphia Buiietint ' L. -
The proclamation of the peace ia London
has ' afforded a ludrlcous ; example of the
"feudal," Government collected all the bea
dles of the great -metropolis, and sent them
in procession, along with the heralds, in
their absurd frippery, to ' demand entrance
Into the city ol London' A detachment of
life guards escottod the procession, which
was realiyjn no danger, excepting that of
being extinguished In the derisive laughter
of the spectators. ' Slowly, the procession
wound along the moll crowded thorough
fare, tho Strand,- until It arrived at Temple
bar, at which archway London, proper is
supposed to begin. Here the heralds found
the 1 gate shut, and being under tna impres
sion that London ia a walled city, they blew
a blast on the bugle and requested to speak
with tho Warder. That functionary having
been dead some five hundred years, the cor
poration clerk took his place and deman
ded, "who goea there!" Receiving I sat
isfactory reply to this momentous' question,
the bolt was withdrawn, and one of the her
aide- was permitted to enter the supposed
fortress, and was escorted before Lord May
or Salomons. That respectable Israelite
satisfied himself that the man's mission-was
peaceable, and gave permission for the Royal
Proclamation to be readwhich wa accordingly-done,
and all th "Bumbles returned
to their homes, followed by the "hoorabl''
of small boys. This mummery may1 be
worthy of the solemnisation of a great na
tion's peace, but your correspondent regrets
not having beers able rO see anything in It
but the height of absurdity. r ; '

jyestr action of Lawrence .
St. Lquis, May 26. The steamer Mor
nlncr Star from Missouri river vesterdav,
brought an extra from the Lexington (Mo.j
hxpress office, which says that Lawrence
wee destioyed on -Wednesday last. - The
United States Marshal with from five hun
dred 10 seven hundred men entered the town
and made arrest of all he had writs for.
He then turned his horse over to Sheriff
Jones who had some arrests made whett the
people resisted and fired on his party. Jones
then opened his artillery on the Free State
Hotel, after which his men charged, and set
the hotel on fire, destroyed the minting
presses and set fire lo the printing office.
There were only about two hundred persons
in Lawrence when the messenger left.
Some artillery was 'firing nd the fire waa
still spreading. But few lives were lost.
This is the - testimony of Hutohison and
Radcliff, Free State men. .;

soring him that thev would make no resist

o'clock, a Deputy Marshal, with a posse of

four men to assist the Marshal in making ar
rests, and took N. W.Dieizler and G. W.
Smith, prisoners. The posse took dinner at

Sheriff Jones soon after made hit appeal ance

One field-piece was given up, but tho peo

Reeolied, That In ihii ofltrtfga we foe
rew encroachment! upon freedom, ne vi6
lations of state rfghti, and a strange disre

conduct' of such men as Senator Critto'n-
den, we gladly recognize proofs of the laCt,
that In all sections of the country thdre are
men of high honor,- of pure principles, and
of true patriotism. ,
Reeolied, That this attack Is to be re
buked, not only as a cowardly assault upon

For Humanity sweeps onward where to-day the
martyr stands,
On the morrow crouches JuJas, with" the silver

While the hooting mob of yesterday, in silent
awereturn, ,
To glean up the scattered ashes into History's
golden urn.
Charles Sumner to-day stands upon a pe
destal of honor which even his owo mighiy
intellect could not have raised him to, in
years. Every drop of blood spill from his'
veins shall bring a legion ol trusty rhen
nerved lof (hs battle of freedom. Out of
the gloomy Cell of Galileo went forth a light
to permeate the distant realms of space and
illustrate the mysteries of the Universe of
God. The blood bf maftjfed Sidney His
not shed In vain; it fell upon soil rich fit Its
later harvests of freedom, and as "Human
ity swept onward" In ita course it came at
last ts reach the Spot Where the martyred
Sidney hod stood befoia and recognized Ha
as its precursor. Where In History have
not the great and good been persecuted!
For fite long years has Mr. Sumner kept
bis scat tft that chamber amid contumefv
and Insult; with little sympathy with his ex
treme views Irom any; with, very little frwn
us, certainly.; He has not been absent from
his seat during a a ingle diy, until the at
tempt upon his life by a ruffian last week.
His burning eloquence, his dialectic skill,
the play Of. his logic and the brllllsocyof
his rhetoric, combined, have all served to
elevate him high up among the ranks of
statesmen and of orators, but the seal of
blood by which he has testified his devotion
to his principles has at nnce placed him In
the very from: broucht him before the
of the nation. Set the hear la of a whoU
free peoplo on fire with indignation, enseal
ed the lips of the "conservaiive," get the "
