FELLOw CITIZENs:-I have disposed
of my interest in the Sunier Banner to
Mr. JOHN S. RICHARDSON Jr., who is, by
iUr arrangement, entitled to all the pro.
ceeds of the Paper from the 1st of Janua
ry 18.55. In parting with my portion
I desire to say that I have dune so solely
from a sense of right. Having been dis
abled by an accident which befell me,
early in the past year, from taking any
part in the management of the concern,
and from assisting to advance the interests
uothe paper, anda one which w:ill probably
disable me from doing so for some time
to come, I have thought it fair and right
that I should take no part from the pro.
ceeds of the office, but that they should
belong to him whose labor and time has
been expended in acquiring them. I
have therefore sold to him my whole in
terest in tiho Pper., and .in taking my
leave of it, I desire to recommend the
BANNER to all whoin I can at all influ
ence to subscribe for and patronize it.
I still feel a deep initerest in its, success

HAVING purchased Mr. LEwis' interest
in the Banner, it is perhaps right and
proper for us in noticing the fact, to give
at least some assurance to the Public for
its future condtuct and mnanagemient.
During the year past, for which time
we have been connected with the Banuner,
it has been to us a labor of love, not
unattended with cares and disappointments
as wvell as with pleasures, to do what we
could to make our paper a pleasant and
instructive visitor to every family into
whose circle'it might find its way. Many
circu'mstances, however, conspired to pr&
vent us from bestow ing upon it that care
and attention wvhich is so necessary in or
der to accomplish this object. The calls
upon one's time, care and ~ttention b~y a
sick family and the unavo tble absence
from Ihom during the paeat summer, with
many other like circumstances, in a groat
mneasture disabled us from doing what we
miigha have done, and desired to do for the
amusement and instruction of our rend
era. But we flatter ourselves that with
the assistance of our able co-editor anud
with renewed zeal and increased efihrts
upon our part, we shall hereatter present

better claims to a portion of their patron

The 1n. P. S. Unooxis has for
warded 'to us a pamphlet cobtaining a
letter from General STRINoFELLOW, a
citizen of Missouri, directed to Mr.
1lao%:s and other members of Con.
gress. It is an. answer to enquiries
made by them in relation to the pros.
pcts for slavery in that territory.
-lie gives some plausible reasons for
the ophrioir that Kiinsas will cludc the
g*asp of the abolitionists. One is the
nature of the country. It is composed
of piairies. Wood is to be feund
only along the stremns, and therelbre
small farms, from the incrensed
amount of fencing they require, are
impracticable. The labor of breaking
up the soil is a great difficulty in the
way of a poor man. Ile says that it
requires two hands, and at least six
yoke of oxen. These must be owned
by the settler, because every man will
need his own force. Ile asseris that.
the people of Missouri are awake to
the danger of' having an abolition
State in their rear, and that, to secure
the establishment of slavery in Kan
sas, they will, if need be, make their
homes there. Ile gives the late vote
for a delegate to Congrese, which
stood thus-for WnT1I!FIELn 2258; for
WAKEFIELn 248i; and for FL.ENNEKEN
305. The question was slavery or no
slavery ; and the pro slavery candi.
date received more than four fifths of
the whole vote.
We have given but a meagre sketch
of this letter. Thus fhr. in spite of
tho deluded fanaties of tle North,
Kansas seems to be safe. With slave
ry as a territorial institution, and
slaveholders the first citizens, and the
moulders of public sentiment; seeluded
by position from direct anti-slavery
innuences and ofiering no indnieements
to poor settlers, it may, if its soil be
as rich and productive as it is repre
sented, invite pro slavery immigrntion
to atn extent suflicient to secure it to
Southern interest. But if this he the
result, it will be long in accomplish.

Kansas cannot grow up to nmitrUity
as a slaveholding State with the rapid.
ity which has characterized the free
States. Those opposed to slavery, in
view of the difliculties presented there
to free labor, may stay away ; but,
:m thle othier hand, slaveholders, in
view of more desirable localities, will
pass by it. We are not mch im.
