Xaazis-its ITogresi and rospeots
Bat four years have lapsed since
'thb living stream of emigration cross
ed the turbid Missouri, and begun, to
spread over tha green prairies ot Kan
sas. While a great ch ingo has taken
place in the condition ol the country,
by the transition from an unhabited
region to tint of a civilized an I nour
ishing country, great revolutions
hive also taken place in the opinions
concerning the portion ofthe "great
" h it ween Missouri and the
Ri!)kv MnauiiH. IV pionwsof
Kins. luve long since explode I the
theory, that the country which we

was a wild waste, unlit for the habi
'tation ofthe white mm and incapable
of contributing to Ins wants as a civ
iliml beinir. Indeed, but a fbw years
ago tins opinion gen 'rally prevailed.
A.lvAii'ed and sustained by
learned travelers and explorers, an
backed by such authority, it gradual
'ly gained credence, until the exist
aniMof the" Great American Desert"
was about as autlienticully establilioJ
as that of " Arabia." B it the lilu-
vanished n I here we
tand fin a Territory, possessing the
" elements of a wealthy and prosper
ous State. No long and arid wastes
'tretch themselves in illimitable ex
tent, ftid present impassable barriers
to our m ir,cu ; but instead, we hare
'found green and t'ertils prairies, and
well watered aiid fruitful plains. A
country teeming in its resources to
supply our wants, nnd gonorously of
fering the blessings and pleasures ol
. life to the weary em grant, who has
turned his face toward the netting
sua, in the hope to lind a home for
the days of his old ago, and an abid
ing place for his postoiity. Instead
of encountering a rugged and frown
ing wilderness, wo discover before us
a broad and beautiful expanse of
"blooming nature," inviting us on
ward and onyvard to whor.e the snow
covered peaks cast their shadows up
on the plains below.
The progress of Kansas has been
astonishingly great. In no other pe
riod of our western progress lias the
stream of emigration, bearing upon
it living bosom the blessings and
'tha glories of American civilia ition,
swept over the like expanse of wilder
'ness in the same short timo. When
the barriers which stoppod the prog,
ress of the. living stream were remov
ed, the longcomiued mass of human
ity precipitated itself unchecked up
on the promised lan I. The stream
has poured iu undiminished and un
turned, and alter the lape of foui
i rears we can look around us ami be

It is really amusing to see how

most scathing rebuke, which the poo-
pie of ivanzas have given to this most

The Tree Soilers in Missouri.
There is no symptom of recoil or

to-day forty thousand strong, they
hold the balaucoof power between tho

can choose the State officers at tho el

theirs ; that Free Soilers from free
States, including thousands of. Ger
mans are constantly uotirinir into

ing steadily out, they know they
have to persevere to win a noble and
enduring tiiumph. And they will
persevere I Defeat has chastened but
