Siuof the date of my las£, a change, a
gloomy ch ii-re, has e.une over the spirit
of i.iv drea as here i:i Kansas. Satan,
i'\ri on rha abut, his been stirring up
ins iiibre'; to their iylerual work /X t.
the (T"pekit ('oir eni'on, tlie prospect
s.-eiued bright and cheering for ant-ace.-
lii 1 and glorious triumph of the cause of
baniaiiity ; n<;thing seemed ii£ei'i>arv hut
to take possession of the Territorial Gov
ernment, which under the fair promises
,ct Gov. Walker, seemed to he an easy
( lask. But no sooner did the Border
Uetuou.N loam the purposes of the people
of Kansas, than ihcy went to work to <lo
fWst them, and have made out one of the
* . • 1
most till linou-', not to say infernal ap
jiortiouliurrits for the election in October,'
,tbaj. ever made by man. 1 need not
uriu nrs. the particulars , they are before 1
the world. Three fourths of the people
arc liisiYanrhised, and the ballot-boxes
are io be placed conveniently to the Mis
putp 'i y''ljaius, and strange as it may ap
pear, t,o\. Walker sanctions this foul
{.lot, and intends to back it up by the
]. 8. Tn-ops. JJow Jong will justice
slumber? How long \pill the American
people the general government to
he used as an instrument of cruelty?—
bliall it be used for the purpose of ensla
ving Freemen ? May not the time be
drawing near, when the people must take;
the government into their own hands, and
purge it of the filthy tibqniinatious that ;
now revel in high place-.?
The prospect of taking quiet possess-1
ion pf fhp ballot-box iu October, which a
sheet timp ago looked so cheering, is now
• -livelong*! in .fnyk clouds. What the
Uotiycnfion at Grasshopper Falls, uow in
session, may decide upon remains to be
seen. There is at present very little hope
that we can vote, or that anything can be
gained by doing so. Dark as the present
prospect appears, we do not despair; the
people qf Kansas have decreed that it
shall be Free, but the precise manner in
which the goal shall be reached docs not
yet appear.
The present policy of the Administra
tion seems to be to harrass the Free i
State men by cruel treat.ucut till they
can endure it no longer; till they commit
some act of violence that will justify or
serve as au excuse for using the troops.
However determined Buchanan and
Walker may be to enforce the bogus laws,'
the people will ever be more determined
not to obey them. I speak advisedly
when I. say that the whole power of the .
U. S. Government can never enforce
these villainous enactments. No man 1
who is not prepared to be a dogged slave, >
can hesitate for one moment' about repu
diating thcui utterly.
The old game of arresting men for ,
treason is again to be tried; a number of
our citizens here are indicted, myself in- 1
eluded, for participating iu a meeting six- i
i on months ago, which resolved not to .
pay the "Bogus taxes. What the result
may he X care not, 1 shall nofc move uiio
jot or tittle from my position. My mind
is fully maie tjp to meet, the issue, be it, 1
yrhat if way. 1 would scorn to obey the I
j>ogijs laws in any particular, for I should i
feci that I had done a mean cowardly act.
And L am well assured that L stand not
alone. \V r e, the people, will resist the
internal usurpation unto death, if need
be, thoqgu it should split the Union into
fragments too small to bo discerned with
out the aid of glasses. What is the U uiuii? j
It should be a glorious compact for the 1
good of the people, but Las it not become
tne instrument of cruel oppression ?
It may not be uninteresting to the!
readers of the JOURNAL to know some
thing of L. D. Williams, better known
here as "Bogus Williams."' He is de
spised by every honest man in the com
munity. He is fully in the confidence of
the Border villains, and is frequently ab
sent, as is supposed, iu council with them,
and doubtless reports whatever transpires
in this community. When there is a
crowd of men collected in discussion of
political affairs, he may be seen hoveriug
around, intently listening to what may be
said. Some months ago the people here
jpnoiated certain officers to settle diffi
culties ; a trial was hue] before one of them
not long since. Bo<rus Williams attend-!
O # v_ • i
ed, ostensibly, as council ior one of the
parties; he took notes of the proceedings,
and obtained a copy of the oath, and
went immediately to Lecomptna, and re-i
port says he laid the matter before the;
court. If this were not a community of j
much forbearance he would be lynched.
THE President, a short time ago, receiv"
ed a letter from Professor Siliiman and :
ethers, including several Doctors of Di
vinity of New Haven, objecting to the
emplopment by biiu of the United States
military forces to execute the so-called j
laiys of Kansas, assuring him that!
they cease uot to pray that he may have
his proper course of duty pointed out to
him, or something to that effect. To this
letter the President has just replied,
briefly but pointedly denying their pre
mises, and questioning thejr knowledge of'
those laws. And after acknowledge their i
validity, he calmly assures thein "that by!
♦ help of God he will enforce them, in j
*' .flunee with his oath of office.

It is au unavoidable feature of all con
ventions assembled for the purpose of
ma'dug nominations, tiiat for each posi
tion, every applicant but one must meet
with a disappointment of his hopes.—
Knowing this to be the case, as every j
one does, no man who has acted with a
political party, because he believed by
doing so he was upholding right and com
batting error, will complain if he should
be distanced in the race for preferment;
nor need any hotter evidence be required
that he was unworthy of distinutiou at its
hands, than to see him, undersome petty
pretext, go over to the ranks of its ene
mies, when the chances upon which he
avowed a willingness to rely and abide by
have failed to gratify his wishes. It is
an unmistakable indication that his party
fealty was based upon aell'ish motives,
rather than upon an honest adherence to
the principle. — Lycominj Gazette.
We have once or twice before found a

We are so well pleased with the above,
that we commend it to the friends of the

"Has Crossed I lie Rubicon."
The following extract from a Washing
ion jotter of the Charleston Mercury,
contains an assertion which we hope every
free Kansas Republican man will read
and ponder:
• Corrf.tpotuh.acr of The Charleston Mercury.
" WAJHIJNCTOJL fciept. 3, 1857.
" 111 his r, ply to Professor Silliuian
and confreres, President Buchannau has
crossed the Rubicon, and proclained his
position upon the. rmlical point of differ -
| ena Itria t ctt the Xorlh and the South.
4 Slavery existed at that period (when he
! c *>'ho ill 1 ' Eie Presidency) and still exists
; in Kansas, underline Constitution oj the
I'nitcd StofeSy
<4 TliatSiaej'y may exist in any State
tiiat chooses to continue or institute it, is
undoubted. That it dqe§ in half
uf the States of the Union, is manifest.
That this half of the States of the Repub
lic have as much interest in the common,
>- territory as -that h.df which possesses m
v slaves, is admitted. Then, whether tin
is negation of a portion by the non-slave
holding States shall be stronger than tin
affirmation of all th-e slaveholdjng
R and the aqniescence of a portion os th<
11 non-slaveholding, in relation to the affair;
e of a Territory, is one question; aip;
s whether the people of that Teiritorj
e alone shall or shall not decide the mat
' ter for themselves, is another; and with
e in these is comprises the whole problem.'
There are two facts stated in the above
„ that should make the honest supporter:
of Buchanan blush to the ey livws. —
Fiist that" Buchanan lias crossed the llu
= bicon," and taken the extreme Southern
. position, that Slavery exists in Kansas
= . under the constitution of the United
States. This verities the strongest as
sertions of the R publican press during
the campaign as to what Buchanan
would do if elected.
But the second assertion is more hu
iiiiiiufjng than this. This letter states
in ai her ambiguous terms, that the North
supporters of Buchanan aquiesee in the
Slavery-extention scheme of the South.
This is doubtless true as to the leaders
<>f sham Democracy in the free States,
but we believe there are many thousand
voters in this State who supported Hu
ehaiian under the belief that lie was in
favor of freedom and justice. These
will repudiate him and his party just as
quick as they discover that lie has thrown
off the disguise heretofore worn, and is
the open alley of SI very-ex tension.
Sciitliein Slavery.
Every paper published in the South,
contains the evidence of the barbarity of
? America. The advertising columrjs of
the most obscure weekly sheet, will con
vince any person with a spark of human
ity in him, that "Slavery is the sum of
all villainies."
Take the following, which is cut from
the SptingScld (Mo.) Advertiser of Sep
t tcmber Ist:
Runaway Xegro.
N r oriCK is heroby given that I, the under
signed Sheriff of Newton county, Mo.,
hive in my possession in the jai in the town
of Neosho, in said county of N •wtoa. a Nugrq
man calling himself FOAAC UUADLKV, ami
says lie is free. Naid negro man is about 31
years, copper color, broad round face, about
5 feet S or 10 inches high. heavy built, weighs
about 180 or 185 pounds, had on when arrest
ed a short blue blanket coat, white shirt with
pleated bosom, soldier pants, black satin vest
worn out. black soft fur hat well worn, and
common shots. ,
Trie owner of said Negro man ia hereby re
quired to make application to me for said Ne
gro man within three months and pay all
charges incurred on aceouut of said Negro
man : and further to comply with the requisi
tions of the law in such cases, or otherwise
said Negro man will be sold at public auction
for cash in hand, at the court house door in
the town of Neosho, in said county of Newton
and State of Missouri, on MONDAY" the 2d dav
of NOVEMBER. 1857.
11. JENNINGS, Sheriff of
July 21, 1857. Newton county Mo.
Bo the worst barbarians go farther than
that ? Ilere is one, Isaac Bradley, who
asserts that he is a Freeman, arrested in
the pursuit of happiness, by the Sheriff!
of Newton County Mo., who docs not pre-!
| tend that the prisoner has committed any
I crinie, or that he has any evidence that
he is other than a Freeman. This Sher
iff, under the despotism which Slavery ■
everywhere creates, seizes an innocent
man and throws him iqtojail. Then he:
calls on his master to come forward and |
pay all charges \f ithin three months, or
the man will he sold, so that if he is not
now a Slave, he sqoa will be. Having j
no master, as lie asserts, it is impossible
that one should pay the jail fees, and
hence there is no escape for him.- •:
And this is the institution which Presi
dent Buchanan and his party have under
taken to force into Kansas. Will the
people submit to such an outrage ?
Republicans, to lour Duly.
We find the following timely and good i
advice in the A. J. Tribune, of Satur
day last. Y\ e hope Republicans through
out the State will give it heed.
"We have already alluded to the can
1 vass in PENNSYLVANIA as presenting the
siugular anomaly of a great party devolv
ing the entire labor and responsibility of
' upholding its flag and defending its faith
upon a single man. Hardly a mppth of
! that canvass remains; yet up tq this hoqr
1 the Republican standard would seem from
this distance to have been upbournc by
David Wilmot alone. Now Mr. Wilinot
is an excellent debater, and, if he were
omnipresent, so that lie could speak in a
j dozen different places at onqe, he might
ido all that is required. As it is, he can
not speak within reach of half the people
i who would gladly hear him before the
, day of election. Meantime, his antago
nist, (who pleads the vote of Lis State
j Committee as his excuse for not meeting
Mr. Wilmot on the stump) is backes by
other orators, and the efforts of active
powerful Committees, and a most unscru
pulous press, Col. Forney's new Phila
delphia "organ taking tup lead in his sup
port. With Wilmot aud Packer travers
ing the State together aud speaking to
the same audiences, we should fear noth
ing; but with Wilinot speaking alone for
.the Right, aud Packer aided by all the
in appliances of a great and disciplined par
io tv which has the Federal appointment:
>- and the Federal Treasury in its grasp, the
e odds are too great, and we call on the Re
s, publicans of every county in Pcansylv a
e uia to organize tor a quiet biR determined
■•sj canvass henceforth to the election. Only
J let the light shine and the darkness will
y cease to be felt. If Dr. (fihon's book
t- alone were in the bauds of every voter in
i- the State, it seems impossible tbat a ma
jority would vote to sustain the authored
0 the heartless and cruel letter to Prof. Sil
linuiu on the state of affairs in Kansas, —
It is only among those who are iguurant
~ ' of the material facts, and who do not know
i-1 that, Mr. Buchanan has himself appointed
ni' 1 as well ::s retained in office the master
s I spirits of the Border Ruffian robbers and
murderers —including some whose indi
vidual hands are red with the blood ot
innocent Free State men —that his letter
r, tp Sijljman can be deemed triumphant.—
u Ipul o:je hqjf tljQ Republicans of Peuu
jsylyau taken TjjK TUIBUNE during the
1 rt two or three years and lent it freely
Ito their neighbors, that letter Would suf
s See to iusjure the ijef 4 gf ifs iqjthoraud
l> his partisans in the pending content,
ej "There io yet time to do the needed
work. If there be a lack of faith or of
1 heart ou the Republican sicje, it is con
fined to the politicians —the People do
' not share it. Cjeij. Packer is cxeeeding
-1 jy vulnerable with regard to the Canal
- jobs aut| s<|qaudcrit}gs of the last ten
3 yours in Pennsylvania, aqj a simple, brief
expose of his connection ft-qli atqj profile
from these jobs would set thuqsaijd.B ac
\tively against him who are now indiffer
] cut. The attempt of the allies of South
■ Carolina and Mississippi to raise votes 011
the assumption that \Yilnot is a Free-
Trader is an insult to the popular intelli
gence, which only needs to he met to re
coil on its authors. Whatever may be
P Mr. Wilmot's individual notions of Po
litical Economy, his election would he
quite other {hftn Free-Trade triumph,
and tliis the authors of the cry that he is
. a Free-Trader do perfectly know. Mr.
? Wilmot was nominated aud is supported
as the champion of Slavery Restrictions,
and as such lie stands or falls; hut his
election would liberate Pennsylvania from
the toils of the political gamblers who, in
opposition pj their owu convictions as well
i as hers, have dragged her behind the tri
umphal car of Calhouuism for most of {lie
last thirteen years, merely that they might
1 riot in the spoils of office. It is high time
that they were rebuked for this betrayal,
and the opportunity uow presents itself.
"We close by cutreatiug every Penn
sylvania Republican tn do his utmost/or
the election of Wilmot and his able and
worthy associates on the Republican
State Ticket. 111 a year of relative apa
thy, little effort oiteu secures great re
j suit."
To BE SoT.N.—The Secretary of the
Interior, owing to many applications of
late made for portions of what are known
as the Choctaw Orphan Bands, in Missis
sippi, now held in trust by the Govern
ment, has directed that proposals be re
ceived for them until November next,
, when they are to he sold to those bidding
highest. That is to say, such of them as
bring more than the appraisement made
in 1 *b&. The rest will then be held sub
ject to sale at the appraised value.— Xeie
York Tribune.
• CRATIC PARTY.— Judge Wilmot, in his
speech at Philadelphia, said :
"Do you think that I cannot readily
get back to the Democratic party if I am
opposed to it ? Why, gentlemen, older
| sinners than I have gone back, aud got
. their reward : I should only have to ootn.
I mit some gross aot of outrage —" catch a
: nigger," or when he seeks a crust of j
bread, seize him aud put him In prison ;
then would I have atoned for all my pol
itical errors in the sight of the Demo
cratic party."
Y\ HERE is PACKER?— This question
is often propounded by members of both
parties, without any satisfactory response.
The last we heard of him he was being
led off the course by his keepers looking
care-worn and jaded; since which time lie
j has been kept elosely secluded in the com
mittee room. Whether they will allow
him to go about prior to the election is
Wilmot is on the stump whilst Packer
is evidently up a stum]*, —lie is stumped
'most offuotually.— McadcUle Journal.

eminently superior claims upon our trade
than Xew York, being the metropolis of
our State; but if it lias failed to enjoy the
profits of that trade, the fault is with her,
not with us. Our merchants trade where
there is most inducement held out to
them, by keeping that particular market

as that wath Xew York, and her claims
upon our trade are certainly more prom

merchants will give her claims some at

pltiKN'H Chase: —On Saturday eye
ping, the 29th uit., my oxen, a pair of
| nice fours, were taken from my pasture
!by two ruffians and driven off. Not find
ing the right track until Wednesday
morning, they had three days the start of
uie. 1 followed down pine Creek, t'trough
the town of Bel mar to Bahfi's Creek,)
thence to Trout Run, via the Block House,'
\ to the Lycoming Creek and thence to a
slaughter house in Williamsport. r i he
whole distance is about 120 miles, which
thev performed in two days apd. 21 hours,
.and I, iu two days and a half, my travel
ling fieing much retarded from the ne
jcessity of constant enquiry, and some
times deviating from the track. The
' rascals ofil the oxen on Wednesday morn
ing for *8G,35 staid around until noon'
and left, saying that more oxen would
soon be iu. The butcher (an honest
Dutchman called Jo.) had bought them
I in good faith, had disposed of one to his

knife. He thought it a hard, ease to pay

erty was partialy identified, and his pur
