Why should not the chances of Mr. Pierce at
the South grow better and better? Why should
not slaveridden—slave•ruined 4 irgiuia, stand
fast by the Executive ?
If there is any gratitude is the South—nay
if she be not blinded to her own interests, she

A Letter from Kamm.
We give an abstract of a letter received from
Kanzas, as containing matters of interest to
our readers :
ICANEAB TERRITORY, OCT. 19, 1855.
"We have had our election, and elected our
representative to Congress—Gov. Reeder—al
most unanimously. The pro-slavery party hod
their electien on the Ist Monday of October, in
which we took no part. To give you an idea
of how matters were conducted, I will give you
the 'tote of Douiphan City. In their election,
1560 votes wereßolled l when, in reality, as has
been proven by' our election, they bad but

circulars containing the announcement
death of Reeder were extensively circulated,
having for their object his defeat. We howev
er had made up our minds to elect him, and
wo did. Our present Governor, Shannon, is a
miserable apology of what a northern freeman
should be. He is a perfect administration tool;
and if Pierce is zealous in his endeavors to
please the South, and introduce cursed slavery
into oar midst, Shannon is no less so in his ex
ecuting his commands. The free-born northern
men, who constitute seven-eighths of the pop
ulation of the Territory•, have determined that
it shall be free, and we will carry our determin
ation into effect despite Missouri bowie knives,
and other 'Administration arguments.'
The country around here is very healthy, and
I have never saw a better for agricultural pur

Ten GROWTH or ICANsse.—Lawrence City,
Kansas, which, little more than a year ago,
had not a single hut nor inhabitant has now one
hundred and twenty log cabins and frame'
houses, three or four large and substantial

in constant operation, from twenty to thirty
stone and wooden edifices in process of con
struction, three large weekly , newspapers, pub

denominations, and lies an industrious, ener
getic, and moral population of between eight
and nine hundred persons. it would grow fas
ter if sufficient lumber and workmen could be
procured, but the mills cauuot supply the de
mand for the former, and a scarcity of hands
prevents the stone edifices from going up as
fast as they are needed. Abundance of stone
is found in the immediate vicinity of the city.
No church is yet erected, the eongeregations
holding their meetings in secular buildings.—
The various sects support a 'lesion" Sunday
school, which is attended by fifty children.—
Marriageable ladies are in great demand, not
more than one-fourth of the population being
females. Of the adult males one 7 sixth are
graduates of colleges and universities, and a
majority are church members. The Kansas
Athreneum has a large membership and a re
spectable library. The city is one mile square
and the streets running east and west are na
med after the revolution,...) , leaders and sages,
:while those roasting north and south are nam
ed after various States on both sides of Mason
and Dixon's line. Here is a picture of the fa
mous Free Soil city of Lawrence. The account
from which we take it says that female domes
tics are very much seeded there. Now, as all
our northern cities are swarming with a surplus
of that kind of population, it would bo a work
of benevolence if some of the Aid Societies
would send to Kansas a number of them. The,
excess of males there is the same as exists in
most of the new settlements of the West, and
arise. irons the the large expense attending
the emigration of families. Hence single mon
are more numerous than married uses among
the emigrants. A remedy will, bower, soon be
found, as Kansas is nearer to the source of
supply than is California where the same diffi
catty has existed for soveral years past.
Many of our patrons are indebted to us for
many years subscription to our paper, we want
them to remember we must live. We hope
they will give us a call ea Court Week, and
give us a little of the needful.

Sr. Louis, Nov. 2.
A most horrible railroad accident occurred
this morning. I send you ha slily all the par

sons have been killed and wounded. '
A train of eleven cars started, this morning,
on the Pacific Railroad, bearing the excursion•
iota to the celebration of the opening of the
road at 'Jefferson city.
The excursionists reached the Gasconade
river bridge, when the bridge gave way, and
ten corn with their living freight were precipi•
fitted into the river.
Vhcre we're, without doubt, about seven hen.

two hundred escaped uninjured.

The greatest excitement prevails here. A
largo number of the wounded has arrived in
this city and are receiving medical attendance.
A corr,spondent nt the Notion I maul,
writes thus to the New York Doily Tirees:
"The State Department has thus far cocci
ved no statements from the ownemof the barque
Amelia, of a date subsetpient to her acizare et
Port an Prince. No effort probably will lay
made to detain the vessel and cargo, because
of her supposed filibuster character. Of course
Mr. Oeltsinith had a perfect tight to sell the
arms and ammunition on board ()flier, if they
belonged to him, and ho was so disposed.—
Neither our Commercial Agent nor any other
officer of the United Staten could interfere with
that right, nor has the officer referred tonitemp•
ted it. But if, for any other reason, the Anse.
lia is amenable to the penalty of violated law,
Mr. Oaksmith's rights are subject thereto. Jn
other words, it is true, as charged, that she
cleared from New York twlerfalse papers, and
the Commercial Agent Was clothed with autho
rity to arrest her on behalf of the United States,
bemuse of that irregularity, then, whatever
right Mr. Oaksmith had to sell, is alibied, to
the action of tae United States, and if tin; lat
ter condemn the vessel and cargo, of course the
latter owners come off Min..
The government has satislhelory proof that
the Amelia's papers were fillse, in sonic re
spects at least. But the question is under die.
cession whether the Cuited States Commercial
Agent at Port no Prince had the legal power to
intercept her for violation of the revenue laws.
From the symptoms visible I inelibo to the
opinion that this question will be decided affir
matively; although that is not yet clear.

Toe Sirs ANT/ 11'outinfm.—A lute letter
from Purls says :
"the number of sick and wounded return.
iug from the Crimea is dreadful. Iu Coastal,
tinople they have increased in a fearful ratio.
Some of the largest convents, us the Chri:tians
call them—lately occupied by Dervishers, the
most filthy creatures and worst of all earthly
fanatics—and other immense buildings, have
been converted into hospitals ; the sarhe at
or places in Turkey. Still they have to send
largo numbers hock to France, and scarcely a
transport or steamer returns without bringing
from one hundred to.five hundred wounded, or
as they are called, convuleacent soldiers, and it
is estimated that seventy per cent. of them
die I New hospitals have been opened in see°.
rat quarters, at liarsielles, containing four thot,
sand beds. 'These 'poor unfortunates introduce
cholera, typhus fever, and other camp disco.
FLo.—Tho tbreign news has caused some
little excitement iu the mat bet to day. A sale
of 500 bat rots standard superfine was made at
PP per barrel ; same holder's are indifferent
about selling -at this figure, but the demand
is limited, and there in little doing either for
export or home consumption—for the latter
purposes prices range at from $9,50 to $10,50,
according to brand. RYE FLOUR and CQllOt
Moot, are quiet at previous quotations. Wttuvr
is nearer and wanted, and sales have been
made ut about 5 cants per bushel advance since
the steamer's arrival; sales reaching da9ooo
bushels nt 2036214 cents for fair to prime
Reds, the latter for Tennessee, mid 212a220
. emits for ordinary.to fair White. RYE is alto
better, and 1500 bushels Western sold 129
cents. Coax is more active, and old Yellow is
wanted at 93 cents.
