He was carried home to his splendid man sion. He was laid upon a bed with a satin coverlet. The lawyer, the relations, and the preacher wero sent for. All day long he lay without speech, moving only his right band, at though in the aet of counting money. . At midnight he spoke. He asked for a dollar, and they brought one to him, and lean and gaunt he sat up in his death-bed, and clutched it with the grip of dea'li. A shaded lamp stood on the table near the silken bed. Its light fell faintly around the splendid room, win re chairs and carpets and mirrors, silken bed and lofty ceiling all said gold as plainly as lips can say it. Hi hair and eyebrows were white. Hi cheeks sunken. nd his lips thin and surround ed by wrinkles that indicated the pattern of avarice. As he sat up in his bed with his neck bared and the silken coverlet wrapped about his lean frame, his white hair and eye brows contrasted with his wasted and wrink led face, he looked like a ghost; and though there was life in h:'s leaden eye all that life was centered on the dollar which lie gripped in his clenched fist. I His wife, a pleasant-faced matronly woman, was seated at the foot of the bed. His son. a young man of twenty one, dressed in the last touch of fahion, sat bv the lawyer. The lawyer sat before the table, pen in hand, and 0j f;pecta;les on his nose. There was a large r,arcUI1(.nt ..A before him. "Do you think he will make a will" asked I his son.

Al! the while the testator clutched the dollar in his right hand. When the will was being read the preacher came, even he wito held the pastoral charge fairly shrieked the dying man, shaking the hand which clenched the dollar, at the preach-. head.

In the same village resided an antiqua ted maiden lady, who having no cares ot her own to occupy her time and attention, mag nanimously devoted herself to those of her neighbors. One morning she called at the Doctor's and requested to see him.

"Do not judge rashly," said the DoDtor, giving his son a wink, "wail until you hear it." Taking the hint, Enoch played Old Hun-; dred.

I lie was not here for the purpose of deba jting abstractions; but to discuss the real con dition and circumstances of nn oppn-ssed people. The Admi 'istration had told the people of Kansas, that they should have the right to make their own laws; frame their own institn'ions of govern nent; establish heir own Constitution. That it ws oppression for the General Government even to control them in I the free exercise of this right, and ought not j to be tolerated.

The election for Delegate to Congress came on.

Four i Pellt,on3 wer offre and with what ay on it i When the election for members to the Gen lt rile'ersl Assembly came, with it came again the eueci : hordes of Missourians, and again swept the election. The Legislature was not on! v chosen !by Missourians. but some of them, citizens of Missouri. But it might be asked: Why did i Herder give certificates to those who were : thus elected? Tho answer is a plain one. 1 Gov. Reeder did not give the contents sufficient time to begin proceedings. The time allowed was only five days; and if that time had been extended but a single day longer, the whole character of the Legislature would have het n changed. Wherever there was a content it was successful, and would have been so in nearly every ensa. had sufficient time been aloTfed for that purpose. But who is Governor Reeder? What have 1 the people of Kansas to do with him? Is he tnot the appointee of Frank Pierce? And are tne people or Kansas to loe their riifht of . . .. . ,- . & sen -government oy ins act because he ave certilicates of eief.ion to men chosen by the people of Missouri to make laws for them? And does it lay in the moirh of Frank Pierce to say the people of Kansas are to be stopped by the oversight, or illegal act of his own agent? Yet this is the ground occupied by the Administration. Frank Pierce appointed G-ivernor Reeder. and he gave certificates .f election to men chosen by the people of Mis souri, to make laws f.,r the people of Kansas; mi when these complain, ihey are told that they are estopped to deny the rijht of tiiis Legislature, because Reeder gave certificates to its members. The "people of Kanas again resorted to humble petitions. But their petitions were again unheard, or. at least, unheeded; and this Legislature, elected by the ueor.le ,,f M-:.c.,.iri i or purposes whohy foreign to the interests ; nd w1,!'hMJof P'Iof Kans.,s permitted I to rna!'e ,an.d PuPilsk a code of laws, co np.ared 1 1 whlch thert" ls ;i P!:''!-l in the legislation 1' wo" fron?

This was observed toward the close of the session, and this grave body of Solons passed a law declaring that wherever the word "The State," or "Tne State of Missouri" occurred, the words should be taken to mean the Ter , riiory of Kansas.
