At length the two elections for a member
of Congress from Kanzas teritoryliiO over and
the result is known. By every right minded
person it must he regarded as a complete and
triumphant vindication Of the course of the
Free State Settlers in refusing to recognize
a gross and unparaleled usurpation. Up to
this period, the strength of the Free State
party 'was boldly denied, and the votes polled
were alleged to be bona tide those of actual
settlers. This can. be done no longer, , for a
genuine election has now been held, nt witch
the Free State settlers.hnve been unmolested
by external interference, & the strength of the
party is Shown in an unmistakable manner.—
This election was conducted with all possible
formality and care, no person being allowed
to vote unless lye were known to be nn actual
resident of the territory for thirty days. At
an election thus jealously guarded,Mr. Reeder
candidate of the Free State party, has in twen
ty-two precincts no less than 1036 votes, while
the twenty-nine other precincts remaining to
he heard from will swell the aggregate to over
3000 votes. There is no, sham about this.—
Every one of these votes was oast by a legal
voter of Kanzas. All the election officers were
regularly sworn in. and the names and resi
dence of the voters have doubtless been regis.
toyed, and the returns duly attested. Practi
cally, it was the first valid and proper election
yet held in the territory. It took place on the
9th inst. A spurious election was held on the
first inst. pursuant to the order of the spurious
Legislature, at which 2640 votes it ere polled,
Whitfield receiving 251,4. and Reeder 80. Of
these not more than 000 were cast by resi
dents of the territory, all the rest ; being given
by persons who went front the neighboring
State of Missouri for the purpose and raorned
on the same day. Man) of these persons vo
ted at a number of different places. There
was no law against this, for, under the election
regulations-passed hy the Legislature, actual
residence is not required. Even with all these
illegal votes, the total number polled at the e•
lection on the Ist inst., falls about one tliZO..
sand short of the number cast nt the election
on the 9th. No doubt the render will inquire
why, then, did not. all these Free Suite men
vote at the election on the Ist, and thus Gent
their.opponents on their own day. Leaving
out of view. the fact that by so doing, they
would have recognized the legality of. tile,
ous, abominable acts of the Legislature, it may
be urged in reply that the election law disqual
ifies every tnan of these three thousand Free
State voters. If they had presented them
selves at the, polls their votes could not have
been received. Even such of them as actual
ly held, slaves—for it seems there are such—
could not have voted in consequence of the se
verity of the pro 'Slavery party. In such
strait it is mere moonshine to preach acquies
cence. There was no other course left to the
Free State mpn than the one they pursued. It
is styled by some revolutionary. It was such
a revolution'as that upon which the liberties
of the whole republic are based. These men
would have been recreant to the names of A
mericans'had they not revolted. Such was
the expectaticin of leaders of the pro-slavery .
party in and out of the Legislature. It was
openly declared in their speeches and newspa
pers that no free State man could with any
self-respect, submit to these laws. They were
not made with the expectation of obedience.
They were avowed to be formed with the in
tention of driving away the anti-Slavesy set
tlers, since it was believed that no American
would live where he could not vote or hold of
fice, nor be a juror, nor have the liberty of
free discuision. Information has been care
fully gathered, showing the real number, of
resident voters in nll the different precincts,
together with the number of spurious votes
cast at each precinct in the territory,
and this will be submitted tp Congress by Gov.
Reeder A correspondent of the New York
Daily Times giies in the following table sonic
of these statistics. In the column headed “11-
legal votes,",are of course only. the number
cast at the election on the Ist inst.. and the
third column gives the votes of some of the

Now it is, asking too much that such outrages
as' these by which the whole purpoee o of repub
licanism is defeated,shall be caltnl, submitted
t 0.,, It, is',idle , ,to toil the, free state men that
they should not permit the outrages. At the
election"in 'March the invasion of unqualified
voters Was donblo tho number of actual set-,
Thilet fur (girth.
tiers of all parties. At the.election of the Ist
inst. the tactics were changed. Then think
ingit unsafe to go tO the large towns of Lawr
ence and Leavenworth, they went to small nod
out of the way places like Fort Scott and Le
compton, and the bulk of the spurious vote
was cast in precincts where there were very
few residents. This was to avoi./ the fight
which they had so eagerly spoken of in the
Legislature. If hll the towns in the territory
contained a majotity of three fourths opposed
to Slavery, some mushroom town like Leeomp•
ton could be started up temporarily to base a
largeillegal vote upon. The only way to put
a stop to the outrages is to ignore all the per
sons elected by them, and to disregard all the
acts of Ituch persons ; and this the Free State
men have done. One thing is pretty evident
from all the news we have published. It is
that a very largo majority of the inhabitants
of the territory are determined to ,have a Free
State constitution. In that they must eventu
ally succeed, and thus the Missottrinns have
already lost the battle, not withsqnding
their outrages. If the people of litinzas in
their Sovereign capacity adopt such a a con
stitution, and applly for admission into the U.
Mon there will scarcely be a doubt that they
will at once be admitted.—North AlllCl ican
No PAY FOR "BORING "--A suit was tried
in the Court of Common Pleas of Lancaster
county, last week, wherein Major Joan Cum
mings, formerly of Columbia, claimed to re
cover from Christina Myers, of Washington
borough, the aunt of $2OO, as compensation for
services in procuring the passage of a law a
warding Myers (the defendant,) $4OO for dam
ages done to a lot of ground in Columbia by
the construction of the railroad. A contract
to pay that sum was pioduced. The defence
set up was, first, that no services had been
rendered; second, that the contract was
ft being contrary 16 public policy to coun
tenance.agreements to pay for the procuring
of legislation. The Court sustained- the posi
tion of the defendants counsel, and charged
that the plaintiff could not recover. 'Borers'
will observe that the law does not favor them.
Cash in advance, will be their motto hereafter.
VIRGINIA LA:lbs.— At a public sale a few
days since in Philadelphia, one hundred and
forty-three thousand eight hundred and sev
et,ty-six,ncres of land in Western Virginia
were sold, most of it one cent per acre, and the
roat at one nod a half cents.. , fillese tracts aie
located in the counties of Doddridge. Ran
dolph, Gilmer, Washington, Braxton, Monon.
galia, Montgomery and Fayette. From the
prices it Seems pretty evident the land cannot
be fit for cultivation, and it is probably some
of the mountainous tracts with which those
regions abound. In one respect these moun
tain lands are useful. They- are covered by
almost inexhaustible forests of wood. If there
be any of them susceptible of cultivation we
do not doubt that some of our northern farm
ers will direct their attention to them, as Wes
.tern Virginia has in this way received many
industrious settlers of late years from the mid
dle States.
ANOTHER ISM DEAD.-A year or two ago
the people of Wisconsin embraced among
other isms, anti•hanging ism, and forthwith
abolished the penalty of death. Since then
murders and assassinations have increased to
a fearful oextent in the State ; and, what is
strange, some of the populace, who held up
their hands in holy horor at the idea of exe
cuting a criminal according to law, did not i
hesitate, in two cases, recently, to bang them
in violation of the express statute of the State
by a resort to Judge Lynch. The deliberate
murder, however, of Mr. Adams, the banker, ,
at Milwaukee, a few days ago, is likely to he
the final end of the anti•hanging ism. The
papers of the State are demanding that the
ensuing legislature shall restore •the death
penalty, in defiance of the denunciations of
modern reformers.
The Washington Union states that, Dr, Kane
will spend some time in preparing the official
account of his expedition, and which he ex
pects to complete in the course of two or three
months. The narrative part of the expedition,
which is likely to prove exceedingly volumin•
ous, cannot be prepared for the press for many
months to come. In the brief account of tho
expedition published in this and other papers,
e serious error inadvertently appears. The
area of the great Polar sea, discovered by Dr.
Kane, is put down at three hundred miles.—
It should have been, three thousand miles; and
when the charts now in the course of prepara
tion, are completed, it is - believed that the
area will prove to be oven much greater.
ilfo'The Temperance men of Lancaster,
are raising a fund to carry on the war against
the liquor sellers who are disregaiding the
requirements of the restraining liquor law.--
They have employed Thos E. Franklin, Geo.
M. Kline and Jas. Black; Esqs., to conduct
the proiecutions. The tavern-keepers, on the
other hand, have raised a fund for defence;
and have employed ,Thaddeus Stevens, Reah

behalf. Prosecutions tinder the law cannot
be brought to trial before the January term

At a mass meeting in Lawrence city, previ
ous to the late election, Ex-Governor Reeder
made a speech, from which we extract the
following passages:—
We say to our brethren of the Union who
differ from us, that although we might deny
their right to hold slaves in the Territory, yet
in the spirit of liberality, we will find no fault
that they bring their slaves along, when they
come to enter into fraternal contest at the
ballot box, for determining the chnrncter of
our institutions, and will recommend that
their slaves he in the mean time unmolested.;
and we declare that when free institutions are
established, the right of property which they
claim in the slave, within our houtids, shall be
treated with that moderation and charity
which should exist between brethren t.f a
great republic who difler in opinion. [Ap
.iphiuie.] Thus far our prospects have at every
step improved We know that our numbers
have increased—our organization has grown
iu strength and efficiency—and our friends in
all parts of the territory have emerged from
a state of distrust and silent apprehension` to
the hold outspoken cheerfulness and willing
united effort of sanguine and determined men.
Etiemi.•V hnve become friends; and friends
iteve become more united, cordial and efficient.
It needed the outside pressure we have re
ceived, to complete our organization and
develope our strength. That we are inn most
decided preponderance of numbers over our
opponents, no opponent who resides in the
Territory and values his reputation will pre
tend to deny. All about us in every portion
of the Territory, as you well know from the
report of the canvassing committees, - our
friend-i are fervent in the cause, and those
who n few short months ago were pro•slavery
men, and some of whom are slaveliolders yet.
convinced by the contrast presented in the
creed and conduct of the two parties. and
awakened to a sense of their own disfranchise
meat, are rallying in numbers to our flag,
and identify themselves permanently with our
The pro•slavery men around you who still
adhere to their opinions, to a large extent, ns
you know, concur with us in repudiating the
acts of the LegislatUre, and avow their deter•
ruination to fight on the side of Kansas aril
stake their lives beside the ballot box when
ever another invasion shall make it necessary.
Three are cheering signs indeed,-and give us
IVA assurance that Providence in its wisdom
has decided the fate of Kansas—that our in
stitutions are fixed far beyond the power of
small demagogues and their misguided fol
lowers to change or affect; and that in due
time, instead of congratulating each other on
our prospects and our hopes, we shall be re
joicing over the consumntion ; and instead of
my assurance to the few hundred persons
within these walls, the shout of thousands
shall boom along our lovely plains, and the
blazing bonfire from every hill shall anounce
that our work is done, and that Kansas hi
free I (Loud, prolonged and deafening cheers.)
The fasikis confirmed by reports from vari
ous sources that many of the slavebolders of
the territory have joined and are now acting
with the Free State party, being disgusted
with the outrage? of .the Missourians. Emi
grants from Ohio, Indiana and Illinois are
reported to be rapidly crowding into Kansas.
Movements have been started in Georgia and.
Alabama to raise a general fund for sending
pro-slavery emigrants to Kansas. We think,
however, it is too late.
MAKING VOTERS.—New' York holds its
State election on next Tuesday, and Lo
oofocoiem is busy manufacturing voters for
the occasion. We see it stated that since the
18th January last, 8,660 aliens have received
their 'papers' of naturalization in New York
city alone. During the past week, an average
of aliOut 100 per day have received their cir
tificates front the Court of Common liens, and
40 or 60 from the Superior Court. Lust Tues
day, the whole number in both Courts was
146. At this rate, the number yet to become
voters before election, will be 1450, or a total
of 10,000 from-the-l-stuary to the Ist
of November, of the present year, or exactly
one thousand per mouth, or twelve thousand
per year.

By the arrival, at Halifax, of the stetimshin

afar. Perekop has been threatened by Ito
allied forces, but their advance is checked for
the present. French force is gathering on the
Danube. .A fleet of the allied vessels is before
Odessa, Preparing to commence an immedi
ate bombardment. Ten thousand men are em
ployed in making a road from I3alaklava to the
allied camp at Sebastopol. A British fleet has
been sent to Naples. During the three
weeks preceeding the fall of Sebastopol, the
Russian losses were over 32,000 men, exclus!ve
of deaths by disease. A battle has been fought
in Asia by the Russians, under under Mourn•
vieff, and the Turks, under Ali Pasha, in which,
the latter was himself taken prisoner, and had
300 men killed. It seems to have been a
cavalry fight:., Kitts still held out, but the

Omar Paella was advancing from Batoum to

We learn from Texas papers that on the
14th inst. n bloody and desperate battle was
fought in Mexico, near thkt Rio Grande, oppo
site Eagle pass, between a force of one hunk
iirrd and ten •Texan Rangers under command
of Capt. Callahan and about seven hundred
Ind fifty Indians and Mexicans, headed by the
ieminole Chief Wild Cat. These Indians were
he remnants of various fugitive tribes from
he United States, who taking refuge in Mex.-
,' co, have been continually sallying forth from
hence into Texas, committing outrages and
robberies, until at length the Texans found it
tecessary to disregard treaty obligations, and
:rose the Rio Grande in order to chastise the
savages. The latter suffered a disastrous de
feat, but in consequence of their large force'
the Texans were obliged to retreat to a town
on the batik of a river, where they fortified
their position and sent home for reinforce
unents. Capt. Callahan, of course, had no au
thority to enter the territory of Mexico for
the purpose of waging war. His object in
crossing the boundary, as avowed in his
address, was to chastise Indians charged with
having committed depredations in Texas; but
subsequently he seems to have directed his
wrath also against the Mexican people, be
cause, probably distrusting his purpose, they
did not aid him in his war upon the Indians.
The matter will no doubt receive due Mimi.
tion upon the part of our Government.
A PARAGON Or A WOMAN.—The Indianapo
lis Journal gives the following account +of - a
lady residing in Paris, Tennessee. Her ex
ample is worthy of imttation, not so much as
regards the extraordinary fecundity she has
herself exhibited, as the generous. conduct
she has manifested towards those not of her
own bbod. We are sorry that we cannot give
her name in 4111. The matron in question is
a Mrs. D—Znow eighty-seven years old.—
She had twenty three living children, and
prayed to the good Lord to give her one more
to make the round and goodly number of two
dozer. Besides these, she has raised four
teen orphan children. She has educated
thirty children—her own and a portion of the
orphans—and for many years sent nineteen
children to school in Paris, and their dinners
with them She says that none of those she
has reared and educated have ever disgraced
her or themselves. The girls have all mar
ried well, and are rich. The boys have all
done well—one of her orphan proteges' has
been in Congress, sevetal others in the State
Legislature ; there are sundry Colonels, &c.,
among them and all aro highly respectable.
Tics GRAIN 111AuxEr,—Notwithstandingethe
admitted abundant crops throughout the Uni
ted States, the prices continue 'up'—wheat
varying not much from two dollars a bushel—
a very remunerative price for the farmer.—
These prices are no doubt the result of an an
ticipated foreign demand, The immense arm
ies now in the field r ilionghout Europe, not
only diminish the number of producers, but
vastly increase the market demand and thus
operate upon the prices. The important ques
tion to Farmers is, will these prices continue'
hardly think they will, but there is no tel
ling. The harvest in France is a failure, and
more or less so throughout Europe. The plain
reliance in Europe will be on the United Stotts.
and if the war continues prices may be kept
