R. H. WARDEN, EDITOR. O i n W A Wfr Register of the D. M. River Improvement, J. C. LOCK WOOD—Of Louisa Co. For Register in the State Land. Offiee, ANSON IIAUT—Of Johnson Co. The Whig and Democratic Candidates —Their Antecedents. Wm. McKay, ihe Whig candidate for Commissioner of (he Deraoine River Improvement, resides at Fort Demoine, if one of the oldest and most estimable citizens of the Demoine Valley, and if elected, which we doubt not he will be, he will fill that important station with honor to himself and profit to the people. The best endorsement he could have lies In the fact that he was elected Judge of t|ie 5th Judicial District, at that time strongly Democratic, by a handsome majority. The more unscrupulous prints Of the Locofoco party have attempted to find some Haw in his character, but the jp&licious darts thrust at him have only ••coiled upon their own heads. J'' O. D. Tisdale, the Democratic ©audi 'dgte for Commissioner, resides in Davis eounty. With his political history we little acquainted, and not being a man of any note, or having ever distinguished himself as a friend of the great improve ments contemplated in this valley, we can say but litle about him, except that he bears a fair character at home. Me owes his nomination, doubtless, to the fact ol his being one of the famous "ab equatulatora" who attempted to defeat ihe election of U.S. Senator. J. C. Lockwood, the Whig candidate IR: Register, resides in Louisa county.— as a membnr of the last Legislature, and distinguished himself for the ability and untiring industry with which he at tended to the interests of his constitu ents and the State generally. Mr. L. Ifpuld make an excellent Register, and llfll undoubtedly be elected. .*iDr. Wm. Dewey, his opponent, ia Drill known in this section of country— perhaps a little too well for his good He was one of the early settlers of Wa pello county, and has been first "one thing and then another," both in occupa tion and profession. And, indeed, we •re like Judge Williams, who, on one occasion asked Dewey, when pleading •f'the bar, which side he wa«on, wheth er for plaintiff or defendant? We hardly know where to pu-t him. When he came to Iowa he was a Whig, but turned Lo cofoco, as he himself said, because the Whigs were in the minority and could not bestow an office on him! He was for a while a kind of hanger-on to the Demoine Improvement, and we believe for seme two or more years received a fat salary from the funds for doing comparatively nothing. After the Improvement had got below par and the Locofoco man agers of it had eat up all (he available lands, and run the State in debt without doing any work, he "had leave to quit,*' and took himself off to the West part of the State, where he has been figuring fust for one thing and then another, from District Judge downward. Last August he was an Independent candidate in Fre mont county agaiust a Democrat, for the Legislature, and was elected by profess ing to be more Whig than Democrat!— But when he got to Iowa City he found that "thrift follows fawning" and he was democratic to the core, voted against the liquoi law, as also did Tisdale, absquat ulated from the Senatorial Convention and got a nomination for Register there by. His location, in the extreme south Wfst corner of the State, if nothing else, VOuld be a great objection to his election. "Anson Hart, the Whig candidate for Register of the State Land Office, is a valued and well known citizen of John eon county, and will reccive a large vote where he is best known. Indeed, the most unscrupulous of the Locofoco party passes can find no fault with him, either ae regards ability or purity of character. iStark H. Samuels, we believe resides Clinton County, and is a brother of SamueU 6f Dubuque, the Locofoco leader in the lower branch of the last Legislature, The office was too small potatoes for Ben. to accept, so he turned it lo accountby getting a nomination to it fof his brother. With the character and qualifications of Mr. Samuels tee-*re unacquainted. In voting for these officers the pebple apaa I O W A THURSDAY, MARCH 8. WHIG NOMINATION#. for Commissioner of the Demoine River Improvement, WILLIAM McKAY—Of Polk Co. JPfP of this Valley should take into consider ation the locality and qualifications of candidates, and if they will btit do this, we shall have no fears of the election of the entire Whig ticket. KANSAS CEJte. In the Kansas Free State of the J»4th, we find the returns of the census of this Territory for four districts, the first, fourth, ninth and tenth.

Dr. Orr was again elected Town Clerk. The ticket we regard as a good one^nd doubt not but that the new board will be as liberal as the old one, who, though they were allowed 50 cents each for every time they met in Council, have never taken anything for their services. The three first named were members of the old board. T. G. Given and Stephen Osborn were the oth er two.

It has been represented to us that the Liquoi^Law is not yet perfectly under stood by the public, and we have been requested to again publish the smend fnents made to it by the Legislature, after we published it. We do so with pleas ure, and would, if we were not pressed for room lo publish the current news of the day, give the law entire again in our columns. The amendments to the law as we first published it, are as follows: Section first, in the original 6111, read as fellows: No person shall manufacture or sell by himself his clerk, steward or agent' directly or indirectly, ar.) intoxicating liquor, except as hereinafter provided And the keeping of intoxicating liquor with the intent, on the part of the owner thereof, or any person acting under his authority, or by his permission, to sell the same within the State, contrary to the provisions of this act, is hereby pro hibited, and intoxicating liquor so kept, together with the vessels in which it is contained, is declared a nuisance, and shall be forfeited and dealt with as here inafter provided- Ale, porter, lager beer, cider and *11 wines, are included among intoxicating liquors, within the meaning of this act. To this section the following amend ment was attached: Provided, however, That nothing in this section or in this act, shall be eon strued to forbid the making of Cider from apples, or fine from grapes, cur' rants or other fruits grown or gathered by the manufacturer, or the selling of such Cider or I fine (if made, in the S'ate) by the maker thereof, provided only, that t'te quantity sold at any one lime be not less than five gullons, mnd be sold and be all taken away at one time. Section 13th, which related to the qualification of Jurors, was stricken out, and the following section was inserted, which provides for a vote by the people and the time at which the law shall go into effect: SEC. 18. At the April election to be holden on the first Monday in Apiil, A. 13. 1855, tie question of prohibiting the sale and manufacture of intoxicating li quor, shall be submitted to the legal vo ters of this State, and at said April elec tion a poll shall be opened for that pur pose at the place of election in each township of each county. The vote on said question shall be by ballot, and the voters in favor of such prohibition shall cast a ballot whereon shall be written or printed the words "For the Prohibitory Liquor Law," and the voters opposed lo such prohibition shall cast a ballot where on shall be written or printed the words, "Against the Prohibitory Liquor Law." The said ballots shall be received and canvassed by tli* Judges of election in the same manner as ballots for the elec tion of officers, and a return of the same shall be made to the County Judge in the same manner, and at the same time as provided for in the election of officers at the April election. Said return shall be treated by the county canvassers in the same manner as returns for the election of officers, and an abstract of said vote made upon a separate sheet, slnll be for warded to the Secretary of Stnte in the same manner and al the same time as provided for in the case of abstract of votes for Superintendent and District Court Judges, elected at any April elec tion. The returns of said vote so re turned lo the office of the Secretary of State, shall be opened and examined by the Board of State Canvassers in the same manner and at the same time as in the case of returns of election of offi cers had at said April election. Imme diately after such examination and can vass, the said Boaad of State Canvassers shall make and publish an official state ment of said vole and if it shall appear from such official statement of said vote that a majority of tht: votes cast as afore sad upon 6aid question of prohibition shall be for the prohibitory Liquor Law, theu this act shall take effect on the first day of July, A. I). 1855: Provided, however, That those portions of this act having relation to the election provided for in this section shall be in force irom and .after its publication in the Iowa Cap ital Reporter and.the Iowa Republican. We also learn that some persist in say ing that the law does not permit the ma king, using and selling of Cider and Wine. This is not so. The farmer cao have his orchards ane vineyards and make and sell as much cider and wine as he pleases, so that he does not sell a less quantity than five gallons. And who, we ask, would wish to buy less than this quantity? Should our farmers ever have apples enough to make cider we want a barrel at least. Besides this* if our farmers could only have fruit enough to make cider we should not have to use vinegar made from pond water, acidulated with poisonous acids and sharpened to suit the taste with vitriol, one of the most poisonous drugs extant. Every bushel of apples raised in Iowa for the next 20 years to come will bring a good price, if for nothing else but to make cider vinegar. There are many frivolous objections lo Ihe law which we would like to notice, if we had time, but we hope that some of our correspondents who have leisure will answer them. CorrespotiiieiKC Ihr N. Y. Ilendd. FROM MEXH O—LITE AND IM PORTANT. The Regular Jinny Pronouncing A gainst Santa Anna—Immediate Jld vemce of the Revolutionary Troops under Alvarez upon the City of Mex ico— Gen. Alvarez' be declared President Pr Tern. ACAPULCO, Metftn, Feb. 5:h. Since the sailing of the last steamer, we have had nothing but military re organizations—soldiers fitted out with new uniforms—formations of regiments and brigades Ir. fact, 1 doubt. if ever such a collection of men will ever be sten for years to come in Acapulco. Having witnessed many demonstra tions of rejoicing, and seen many pro cessions, both religious and political, in not only this, but other portions of Mex ico, 1 have yet to see such appontanoous manifestation as was displayed on yes terday, at the reception given to the gal lant old chieflain of the South, Alvirrz and what is very singular, this is the first time he has visited Acapulco since the days of the Spanish Revolution, when he captured the Castle of Sun Diego.— The road from the Gariia to ihe Plaza a distance of one leagu*, was lined on both sides with soldiery, under the command of Gen. R-mon Jose Ginsasola. Al the Garita, he was received by the civil functionaries, and in pussing, the different regiments drooped their colors, the men presented brine and the band play ed national airs. On the right rode Gen. Thos. Moreno and on hi* left Gen. Ignacio Comfort, and your correspondent, whose feelings of patiioiit*m, prompte him to add Ins nute in receiving one whom he so highly appreciates for his many noble qualities. Of the numerous triumphal arches under which he passed, the ono which np peared lo please him most, had inscribed on it "Liberty and Justice." In appearance Alvarez, looks about, 50 years of age, though he if Gl and1 since 1 saw him last, tie careworn ex pression has disappeared, and a smile of contented satisfaction illumes the features of his face from which can be read. "1 have lived lo see my country rescued from despotism." In the evening a grand ball was given lo hia honor in or der to enable him lo receive the'lndies.— The fitting up of the rooms would have compared favorably with those of ours at home. At the head of the ball room, over the chair occupied by Alvarez, hung the "stars and stripes" and the fl: of (he Republic of Mexico, their graceful folds indicative of sister harmony and it is gratifying to see the private as well as public sentiment of good understanding existing towards the U. S. and hrr citi zens. It was also pleasing to observe that ber Britanic Majesty's Consul, Charles Wilthen, Esq., was present, not onunitting our own esteemed Consul, Chas. L. Denman, Esq., who with his accomplished lady, made the festiral complete. In a few days the Chieftain, at the head of 5,000 troops, leaves for the cap ital. The First Brigade will be under the command of Gen. Moreno, and will take np its march on the 8th, and 1 cannot permit this opportunity to escape with a mere mention of Moreno's name. He is one of the best military educated men in this country, and was born in Pensa cola, Florida. His pedigree is of the old Moreno's and l)e Sotos—both names well known in our Southern States as families of the highest stani^ig and re spectibility. The General was educated at St. Joseph's College,Bardstown,Ky., and although in the year 1828 he expa triated himself and became a citizen of the republic, still does he retain the high toned chivalric honor and bearing of that State in which he was educated. Dur ing our war with Mexico, in all the en gagements on both lines of operations, he not only look an active and conspicu ous part, but has since then took an ac live service on the frontier. Finding in his last engagements at Nuesco, Sama Anna, seeing-his pronunciamenio, which acompanies this letter, abandoned him and his entire command, and that no dishonor could be attributed, he, with his brigade, composed of nine regiments Lave pronounced in favor of thai party which from his position in the army, he was forced to oppose by military duty and law until the opportunity arrived when he could give expression lo his feelings of patriotism. 11 is acquisition to the liberal party has already been strongly felt and from town to town, as the news arrived have the government troops pronounced in favor of Alvarez, which is the funeral knell of the would be Emperor. The 2d brigade will be under the command of that uncompromising offi cer, Gen. Ignacio Commonfort, any word in whose favor would be to "guild re fined gold." The 3d is to be commanded by Gen. Moreno, whose laurel* are already fam iliar to all your readeis. These brigades are to be reinforced in Chilpancingo by 7,000 troops from the State of Michioacan, and. on their arrival within a lew leagues of the city of Mex ico, Gen. Alvarez is lo be proclaimed President of the Republic, pro tem. As some little diversity of opinion exials as to who shall be honored with the next Presidential elevation, I will merely state that of the following dis tinguished gentlemen, one will be select ed. First comes Gen. Ariste, whose friends desire that he should be permit ted to complete his term of office. Next comes Cen. Ceballps, who is alsoan ex jiMacio Com quail* =&= tied, but whose elevation would meet with universal approbation. As lime is rapidly approximating when a change of Presidency will lake place, you may rely upon my coir muni eating the earliest iutelligenoe. The Law to Amend the Conslltlftftfli of tho State. By an act pasted by the Legislature, and now in force, the question of an a mendment ot the JConstitution, is to b* submitted to the people at ihe next gen eral election, being the first Monday of August, A. D. 1850. if the people vote in favor of ampnilingthe constitution then the Governor shall, on the fmt day ol October issue a proclamation declaring the result of ihe election, and that an election of delegates to attend a conven tion lo amend the constitution will be held on Tuesday after the first Monday in November in said year. The number of delegates shall be the same as the Senatorial representation, which is now thirty six these delegates so elected at said election shall meet at the Capital of the Slate on the 3rd Mon day in January, 1857, and proceed to revise the constitution. Each delegate shall teceive $3 per day while attending said convention and $3 for every twenty miles travel. The convention shall provide for the submission of the constitution so amend ed to the people, the time lo take effect, &c.. Thus it will be seen that it will take nearly four years before our present con atilution can be changed. 1 he question of submitting the call of a convention to the people, could noT be voted on, according to the present consti tution, before the next general ele.ction, which is next August »year.-3/f. Pleat ant Observer. From the N. Y. Tribune. SfaTfry Nationalized. WASHINGTON, Feb. 17. '56. IVti lig'hieou* men in ihe Senate! A bill passed the Sennte yesterday to pay (out of the National Treasury) to certain Indians full compensation for the loss of a number of slaves—thus recognizing "tne wild and guilty fantasy" of proper ty in human flesh. Who saya now that Slavery is not national? T,he Senators who voted against this bill were, Messrs. Braiuerd, Fooe, Tlanjlin. Fessenden, Seward, Sumner, Wilson, Gillette, Chase and Wado, Maine, Vermont, Masachusetts, New York and Ohio gave no votes for it.— Pennsylvania gave no votes against it, both of her Senators, Brodhead and Cooper, being present and voting Aye! Degenerate Pcntisy Ivania. No State in the Union, except it be perhaps Iowa, tends such unmitigated doughfaces to the Senate as the State founded by Wil liam Penn. Coopei is a Whig and Brod head is a Democrat, yet it is difficult to say which is the most abject and con temp'ible. Cooper has the most talent Brodhead the most vanity. Brodhead is industrious, and works faiihfuliy for those he undertakes to serve Cooper takes no part or interest in the proceed ings of the Senate and is seldom there, although his eight dollars a day never fails. He earned it yesterday. Well, ten voles to day in the Senate of the United States against nationalizing Sla very. Make a note of it, and see how many there will be next year. CP** Senator HARLAN has been in the city some two or three days. He preach ed two sermons in the Methodist Church on Sunday, and another one last evening. The building was crowded to suffoca tion, and those who heard him speak highly of his efforts, both as lo argu ment and diction. We had not the pleas ure of being present, and therefore give our information second hand—but if ihe current opinion be correct, the Professor has certainly created quite a diversion in his favor. There is so much preju dice and misrepresentation in the politi cal world, that, in order to be ou the safe side, it is alway s best for the people to suspend judgment until they can have an opportunity of hearing for themselves. Those who have heard Professor II. are best prepared to say whether they have been agreeably disappointed. Rumor longaince prepared us to expect nothing from him—rumor is now equally active in magnify ing his merits to the highest piteb of power and excellence! The fact is a fair illustration of political prej udice.—Bfr. Telegraph 20th. THE M. E. CHURCH PROPERTY.—We learn from the Western Christian Advo cate that the controversy between the M. E. Church, South, respecting the Book Concern property at Cincinnati, was amicably settled by the Commis sioners on the 16th inat., oa the follow ing basis: The Book Concern is to pay the Methodist E. Church South, $80,000, and the Southern debts, $20,000 in stock, and the balance in cash—15,000 down, the remainder in installments of one. two, three four and five years. It ia understood that the Book* Concern pays the taxable costs yet due, and thai they indorse ihe debt and notes of the aouthern preachers without recourse. As to all other costs, each party pays its own. SHARP.—Prentiss, of the Louisville Journal, in his paper of the 28th ult., gives the following without extra charge.
