Dyer, the democratic nominee for May or, was elected bv about 500 majority ' pretty well for a city that gave tho fusion Mayor, last year, some 400 majority; for j one that employed a gang of rowdies and j by the officers of the Agricultural Society, negroes to hiss Judge Douglass down, whei-, should receive the attention of all our cit he attempted to make a speech, on his re-j izens. The first annual fair was productive turn home, afier the passage of the Kansas j of much good, and was better attended j bill. That bill, by common consent, was! than was at first anticipated. Tho pros-5 mad the issue in the present contest; the ! pober second thought is generally right. The Wabash Gazette, (which, by the way, is a welcome exchange,) devotes a column or two in a fruitless effort to move that the Democratic rartv are iu favor ofiallhou-h the5r introduction into this coun the extension of slavery and in an especial! minnw art in f ivor of slavery bein- estah-I i t T- r- i t.i" .1 , lisnea in ivan.as. i nena j- letciier aamits that we, individually, arc opposed to slav-; ery extension, and that the Democrat!-, par- j ty were, up to 1C50; for those admissions, wuwwv,. xi.iu, are very lew Fusion papers but will admit!. that there is not a remote probability that 1 13 1 Kansas will be a slave Stat and there ts ! etill a less number that advocates the res toration of the Compromise lino. If it was wrong to repeal that 1 in;?, why, in the name of common sense, don't Congress restore it, and settle the question at once? The Democrats are i;i the minority, and cannot prevent it so far as the lower House is con cerned. We conclude that the Fusionists do not want it restored, and that they will not make an effort to bring peace and qui etude to the country in that way. They wish it to remain, for the present, an open question, so they can have the pleasure of saving freedom forever, Nebraska fniquity, Douglass swin lie, etc., etc. We have been no little amused, s'andin in hc-aiin" of some of our Fusion friends on election days, when they were trying to draw the wool over the eves of some voun' Demo erat. They would ask the question are you in favor of maUng Kansas a slave State?" The answer would be "no," of course. "Well, then, you must vote for Mr. Colfax, or some other man, who is known to be iu f.ivor of freedom, and in fa vor of Americans riding America.' We re gard such a course as ridiculous, in the ex-! treme; and those who make the most noise about -'freedom forever," care but very lit tle about the colored people, if they can only succeed in making the people believe that thc Democrats are in favor of slavery, and that they are the only advocates of free dom and equal rights. The Kansas bill is precisely the same as all other Territorial bills which have been enacted, except ihat clause which allows Kansas to be admitted with or without slavery, as the inhabitants may choose. The "bogus Legislature," as it is called by the Fusions, was commissioned bv Gov. Reeder, and their acts recognized by him as legal, which appears by his signing and vetoing bills which they enacted. If Con gress has the authority to "o behind Gov. Reeder's certificates which he issued to the members of the Kansas legislature, wc say amen; let them go to work and declare tho Legislature and the laws which they have enacted, oid; and let them commence anew. Until that is done, it appears to us thai the laws arc binding; that it is thc duty of the President to see that the laws are enforced, and that there bo no outside interference tolerated. We predict that this question will not be settled for some time yet. It is the only hope the Fusions have of keeping up the excitement until the fall elections are over. The fact of the Iv. Ns having nominated Mr. Fillmore for President, is quite a damper on the north ern wing. Fix these matters up, gentle men, to suit your notions; you may raise th cry of "freedom forever," "Nebraska iniquity' "Whisky party," "Rumsuck ers," tc, but it will all be to no purpose; these clap-traps have had their day, and hare ceased to excite alarm; they have done their work, and will, in future, do nothing more than to increase the Democratic majority. Sudden Death. It becomes our melancholy duty to chronicle the untimely death of Jacob K. Hcpp, one of our oldest citizens. The cir cumstances of his death as near as we have j been able to learn, are as follows: On Fri- dav evening, the 7th inst., he was in his, ,, j: , , . : ciin -uiiii, ucro no jkiu ti bih in vjj crfliou; his Avife anJ tww irls cre in tlie j mill, also. 1 hey heard him groan, ana I looked around; saw him set down with his j hands on his breast; he then fainted; when he recovered he said he was very sick told his wife to shut down the head-gate, ! that he was dvinir. The irirls ran to a neighbor's house, aud got help; they car ried him into his house, where he breathed his last in a few moments. Some think that the saw threw the end of a piece of wood against his breast; others think that a blood-vessel broke. There were no marks discoverable on his body, except a dark spot on his breast, about the size of a quar ter of dollar, which was discovered wheu they were putting on his shroud. The deceased was a good, substantial otizen; had served four years as Sheriff in this County, and has left a large circle of friends to mourn his untimely death. We truly sympathize with the family and rela- j tives of the deceased, in this their day of 1 trouble. I i A funeral discourse was delivered by (Key. Austin Fuller, at the Methodist ; Church, in this place, on Sunday, the 9th inst., to a large and attentive audience. He was then taken to 'that bourne from whence no traveler returns.'

Dunlcvey, Ilaire, fc Co., from Cincinnati, have established themselves in Indianapo lis, for the purpose of running our Stock Banks in particular, and the State Bank in general. Should they continue their un gentlemanly course towards our Banks, they will intlict a serioii3 injury on our State. Tho Banks, in order to protect themselves, will have to draw in their cir- culatiouas fast as possible, and curtail their loans ; . j Indiana has contributed largely towards supporting the business men of Cincinnati; but from present ftppearances she will do her business, in th future, with those who will not send a firm of moneyed sharks among us to derange our currency. If our business men will do their trading at some other city, which they can as well as not, the Cincinnati merchants and brokers would soon call Messrs. Dunlevey, Hai re i Co. home nirain.

HorsK The House renewed the consid eration of the report of tho Committee on Elections in reference to the Kansas con tested case. Mr. Oliver, of Missouri, aJdressed the House at some length, in opposition to cm powering tho committo to send for persons and papers in tho ease. Ho maintained that on the head of Mr. Reeder and others, who had joined in the extraordinary niove- ment forgetting up Emigrant Aid Societies and procuring Sharpe's rifles, rested the responsibility of all the strife and blood- ! shed in Kansas their sole object being to ! defeat what they termed the infamous Kan- r , , i I hese things were calculated justly to extUe the indi uion of the peoplJ0 of 'Mis. suun, aim 01 ivansas territory. He indignantly repelled the term 'Bor - .1.. I,, m...., , K.,,1 n.,!....!;. UC;ous of their ri-dits, and with mind enough to maintain them. Mr. Oliver said he did not know any Missourians who voted in Kansas, but he had witnessed hundreds of Eastern men re turning from the Territory, who said they had 'seen the elephant,' and filled their contract to vole, and were returning home. He said to authorize iie Committee to send for persons and papers, would be to give countenance to revolution and defiance of law, and trusted the House would refuse this request, made at the instance of the man Heeder, who lias smeared his hands with the blood of his fellow citizens, and is quietly laving the foundation of treason, which only needs the overt act to justify his being handed ashih as Haman. Mr. Cumbaek, of Indiana, admitted as charged by Mr. Oliver, that the design of the Emigrant Aid Societies was to make Kansas a free State, and the doctrine pro nounced by Northern Democrats, as the ob ject of the Kansas-Xebraska act, was not only to make these Territories free, but to establish a cordon of free States to the : Pacific. j lie never had any des!re to go to Kan j sas till he saw an effort made to force slav ; cry there. He submitted to Messrs Oliver ;and Phelps, who Iffive addressed the House j on this subject, that we must ask them how i many men and whom shall go to Kansas j in order to become citizens? If freedom !gco9 there, that is war on Missouri. He said that Virginia and North Carolina once j stood on the ground the Republican partv j new occupies; if slavery is sectional, who j made it so? Mr. Cullen said this question should be j settled with calmness, and according to the j principles which regulates Courts. He j maintained that the House could not impugn j the acts of the Kansas Legislature,, under j which Whitfield was elected. Gov. Reed ! er decided that the members were duly j chosen, having commissioned them and sent a message recognizing their act as le gal. Tho House had no right to open that investigation, beeause it cannot go beyond the record. Mr. Walker concurred i: the views ;x pressed by Mr. Cullen. The House then adjourned until Mon day.

The Republican and Know Nothing parties doubtless will be annihilated next November; but other parties, opponents of Democracy, will rise, Phenix like, from their ashes, and 'strut their brief hour upon the stage.' Äthan fj Argus. A New Cave an its Secret. During the latter part of January, some laborers on the Virginia Central railroad, near Cov ington, Allegheny county, Virginia, dis covered a new cave, of considerable ex tent, with an opening at each end. On ex ploring it, they found the dead body of a man, in full huntingcostume, which crum bled to pieces like dry dirt, vh.cn t;uchcd. One of the persons took hold of the foot, which immediately broke from the leg. On examining the body, next day, a pock et book was found, containing papers, among which were seven bonds for large amounts of money, one being for ?C,5UO, dated in tlu )ear"lC23, and others dated in 1U2G. All of them were signed or giv en by old settlors of Allegheny and Bath counties. It is thought that lb ) citcum stances under which these bonds have been kept from the light, will bar the ap plication of the statute limitations, in which some very respectible persons in that region will be placed iu rather embar rassing circumstances, as they will be held responsible for the bonds to the full extent of the property inherited by them, as heirs of the signers of the papers. The Green brier Era, which is the authority for this account, does not say whether the name of j the deceased is known, nor whether any marks ot violence were found.

The New York T'ribune of Thursday con tains statements respecting aflairs in the Territory of Kansas, to which we wish briefly to call attention. The first and the last legislature of Kan sas appointed sheriffs, judges, fcc, to serve 1 mrs- Ams allegation is unoul a parucie oi ioumiation in truth, as will be seen by examining the copy of the "Statutes of the Territory of Kansas," published, "by authority," at the Shawnee M. L. School, and printed by John T. Bra dy, public printer. The last general as sembly of Kansas provided that all public officers within control of the Territory, ex cept treasurer and compti oiler, should be elected by the people at the general elec tion for members cf the general assembly for the year 1057. The treasurer and comp- t roller alone are elective by the general as sembly, and they are to be chosen once ev ery four years. We give a copy of so much of the act providing for election of sheriff as relates to the falsehood of the Tribune. Chapter 150, pp. 712, 713, sec tions 1 and 2. Sheriff. An act pioviding for the office of Sheriff, and prescribing his duties.

It was necessary for the general assembly to elect those and oth- er officers to serve for abrief period, in or- der that the machinery of territorial gov ernment might be put promptly in motion. In the sanv artich the Tribune says that the riydit sulfra'j-e in Kansas is "iMven to every man that pays, or ia whose behalf is paid, a poll-tax of one dollar, although he may not have slept one night in thc Terri tory," and publishes to sustain the allega tion, a copy of law never enacted by the general assembly of Kansas, and, of course of no authority there. We give t!ie law as printed in the Tribune: "An act instituting a poll-tax. "Jle it enacted, ii'C. Section 1. That ev ery white male above the age of 21 years, who shall pay to the proper officer in Kan sas Territory the sum of 81 as a poll-tax, and shall produce to the judges of any election within and for the Territory of Kauras a receipt showing the payment of said poll-tax, shall be deemed a legal voter and shall be entitled to vote at any election in said Tcriitory during the year for which thc same shall have been paid. Provided, That the riht of suffrage shall be exer cised only by citizens of the United States, and those who have declared on oath their intention to become such, and shall have taken an oath to support the constitution of the United Statesand the provisions of the act organizing the Tenitory of Kansas." That the above is a forgery will be made appaenrt by rctding the following, which arc the only laws of Kansas prescribing the qualifications of voters: Chapter GC, p. 332, sections 1 1 . Elec tions. A:i act to regulate elections. Be it enacted ly the Governor and Legisla tive Assembly of the Territory of ICansas, as follotcs: Sec. 11.

The only enactment by the general as sembly of that Territory which relates to the "instituting of a poll-tax" is the f.dlow-' mir: Chap. 138, p. 689, sec. 1. Re enue.

'Among other miracles, that most dwelt i upon was the exhibition of the spirit hand, i which these Davenport boys had the faeul- i tv to show rising above the table, and which i so many of the faithful had seen and would j swear to. j Accordingly, a time was appointed for the taithtul and a lew skeptics to witness the manifestations. They assembled, the boys occupying one side of the table ex clusively to themselves, while the specta tors were placed at the opposi-e side, at a i suitable distance from the mediums. The hands of boys being tied to thc chairs, and all being satisfied that there was no con federate under thc table, the gas was now turned down, so as to leave only sufficient j light to discern the spirit hand when it should appear, and all present were re quired to keep their places, and on no ac count to approach the 'mediums. ' Afier waiting a few moments a 'hand!' was seen to ascend slowly from beneath that side of the table where boys were, widely opened, with the palm towards the spectators, and was then tdowly withdrawn under the table. All could see it bv the dim liht, and the sect were iu ecstacies. A skeptic who was present, concealing his unbelief, begged that thc spirits would repeat the manifestation, which being done, he quick ly leaped to the end of tho table, clutching the 'spirit hand' before it had time to de scend, and the gas being turned up, dis closed a stujTcd ylovc! fastened on the foot of one of thc Doys so that s leif bein slyly lifted, made the manifestation! The confusion made by this open exposure of flagrant fraud and bold imposture on the part of the 'spitits' and this Davenport family, has put a slop to these dollar exhi- j bitions here.
