Kans..—The escape of thirty-one prison
era from Lecompton jail, is confirmed by a
Westport correspondent of the St. Louis Re
public., who says that the other sixteen
prisoners would also have got off, but that one
of them accidentally stumbled against a sen.
tiuel. The same authority gives a statement
:purporting to show the vote cast for Whitfield
for delegate to Congress at the farcical elec.
'lion held by the Missourians. It foots up a
total of 4276, no less than 1458 of these pm ,
porting to be cast in Leavenworth, which nev
er contained more than 1200 inhabitants, men
women and children, of whom two-thirds are
opposed to Whitfield and all his crew. At
the same time, 2592 votes were cast for a Con
vention to frame a State Constitution, and 454
against. Since the restoration of peace, Lea,.
enworth seems to be going ahead prosperously

Prompt Settlement. —Oa dit, that a man
was recently knocked down in a railroad car,
in New York, for insisting upon "taking the
sense of the company" upon the election of
1860. In the sense in which people are said
to be Indoctrined, be was in -sensed, as to the
sense of one of the incensed passers. We
cannot help thinking it was a well deserved
infliction ; for a man who could venture, at
this early day, to anticipate the excitement of
four years hence, ought, in regard to the peace
of the community, to be expostulated with.
Wino is Sectional.—Fremont has carried all
the Free States except five. One is the sec•
tionalism of Slavery—the other of Freedom.—
Fremont's majority in the free States is over
'2so,ooo—Buchanan's majority in the slave
States 175,000. Look at the figures. The
Rupublicans vote for Freedom, and in a Re.
public Freedom is National ; the Buchaneers
vote for Slavery, and in a Republic must be
Sectional ; else the Republic has no claim to
the name. Who is sectional, then, we ask ?

soil prisoners are said to have escaped from
the Lecomptm jail. A report had been car
ried into Missouri that they had been Ebert'.
ted by a mob of •'Abolitioniate," but the St.
Louis Intelligencer contradicts this, and says
that the prisoners effected their own liberation

Stiir A noteable article appears in a Into
number of the Detroit I'ree Press, the home
organ of Gen. Cass. It charges upon the
Southern democracy the present hopeless con
dition of the Northern democracy, and denoun
ces the Kansas outrages as well as the course
of the National Administration, in good set
terms. A good many Northern democrats,
like Gen. Case, feel that it is time to "settle
accounts" with the South.

"Can these things be ;

Without our special wonder."
Our attention has been directed to an ar
ticle in the last Hol. Whig, which it true,
proves that John W. Forney, Chairman
of the Democratic State Committee, sum
moned the Fillmore editors to Philadelphia
before the election, to consult with them
on the political affairs of the campaign.
Then indeed may we safely infer that the
honest part of the Filmore party of this
county has been betrayed into the support
of the Locofoco party, by the editors of
the “American" newspaper. published in
this place; or, why should the Filmore ed
itors be summoned to Philadelphia, to
make terms with the Locofoco Chairman?
Have the honest men of the American
party been sold, like the slave upon the

with powerful suspicion against the integ.

We should like to know what business he
had with Forney's checks Let the *Amer

The Southern Convention.
The Convention reassembled today, and a
dopted resolutions in favor of ihe completion
of a railroad from the Chattahoochee river, by
way of Montgomery, Jackson, Vicksburg and
Shaversport, to corinnect with the Texas and
Pacific Railroad. The resolutions in favor of
restoring the African slaie trade were again
brought forward for discussion, and an anima•
ted debate thereon ensued. They were final
ly postponed indefinitely. A committee was
appointed to obtain statistical information for
the use of the next Convention. Nothing else
of importance was done. The best feeling
prevails. The Conventian will adjourn sine
die tomorrow. Many members have already
The most important business of the Con
vention thus far hen been the refusal to take
up from the table where they had been laid ,
the resolutions in fitrar of re-opening the Afri•
van slave trade.
The States which voted against this props.
sal, were Georgia, Virginia, Louisiana North
Carolina Florida, Alabama and Maryland, and
those which favored and advocated the resoln•
lions were South Carolina, Tennessee and
Texas. It was evident from the first introduce
lion of the resolves, that a large majority of
the members were strenuous], opposed to them
and hence every attempt to agitate them was
quickly disposed of.

Abstract of the Report of the Postmas
ter General.
The Postmaster General's report shows the
number of Poet Offices June 30, 1856, to have
been 25,565, being an increase of 4,664 in four
years. On the 30th of June there were in op.
oration nearly 8000 mail routes, the total length
being nearly 235,641 miles, costing $6,035,474,
divided as follows :-20,323 miles by railroad ,•
14,851, by steamboat ; 50,453 by coach ; and
nearly 154,000 by inferior grades. The in
crease during the last fiscal year was nearly
7,000 by railroad, 332 by steamboat, 1,250 by
coach, and 82,000 miles by inferior glade.. In
Nebraska and Kansas 2,238 miles were added
to the length of the routes.
Between the first of Jnly t 1852, and July,
1856, the railroad service was increased 10,177
miles, exhibiting the fart that this description
of service was more than doubled. Cu the Let
of December 1856, the length of the railroad
routes had increased to 21,310 miles. The total
coat for this service at the t date amounted to
$2,403,737. The whole cost of inland service
of the first of July was $6,526,028.
The Post Master General alludes to the Pa
nama Railroad Company, seizing on the occa
sion of the withdrawal of the steamers via Nic
aragua to force the Department to pay what
he considers an exorbitnut price across the
Isthmus, and recommends a regular contract
at not exceeding $50,000 per annum and a
contract at not exceeding $200,000 per annum.

a weekly mail to California.
The 'expenditures fur the year 1856 Were
$10,405,286, and the gross revenue, including
the annual appropriations for free matter, $7,-
620,821, leaving a deficiency of 2,787,000.

franking privilege and the compulsory prepay.
went on all transient mailed matter. Also the
repeal of the act of 1845, which gives the Yost
master General the discretionary authority to
make new contracts for Ocean Steamship ser
vice, and alludes to the fact embracing the
branch from New Orleans to Havana, that
there are now four ocean steamship lines run
ning ant of New York, at an expense to the
government of $1,490,000 per annum. No
reason is perceived why one part of the country
should be preferred to the exclusion of others.
Among other points it is stated that negotia
tions are iu progress with a view to the reduc
tion of the British transept charges on the Uni
ted States closed mails, and the rate of postage
between the United States and Great Britain,
to 127} cents for single letters.
Abstract of the Report of the Secretary
of the Treasury.
During the last fiscal year, the receipts icto
the Treasury wore $73,918,141 16, being an
excess of the estimate, which was $67,918,734
26, With the balance in the Treasury from
the previous year, the aggregate of available
funds amounted to 392,850.117 47. The ex•
pendituree of the year reached $72,948,720 U 2,
being in excess ut the estimate, which was
$71,226,846 91. The balance in the Trott.
sury at the close of the year was $19,901,325 45
a g ainst a previous estimate of $15,623,863 36.
The actual and estimated receipts et the cur
rent year reach pretty much the Caine figure
as above, and calculate ou a balance of $22 ;
745,222 81 being in the Treasury on the 30th
of June, 1857.
The national debt, which, on the advent of
the administration, was 369,127,936 27, and
was subsequently increased by the sum of $71,-
879,000, has since beets reduced to the sum of
$30,963,909 64. In addition, however, we

Much of the report is speculative on the de.
wand and supply of various kinds of goods,
and the progressive domestic product of the
various kinds referred to; all, of course, haviur
reference to the Secretary's views in favor of a.
reduction of the tariff mt imports,
which he a•
gain presses upon the attention uf Congress, us
lie did in all his former reports. ile especially
favors the removal of the duties on wool and
other raw materials.
'1 he annual tonnage statement shows an a g .
gregate of 340,349 maritime tonnage, which to
less than the previous yearly statement. But
this is accounted for from the fact of there ha.
sing burn a thorough revision of the records of
formes years, the correction of errors, etc. The
revised statements of former years show a reg.
ular progressive increase with our commerce
and population.
The total gold and silver coinage of the U.
S. Mint, since its establishment in 1703, is
$549,341,914 14; and the entire import of guld
and silver since 1820 has been $293,505,743,
and the export $53,507,354 ; thers being no ac•
count of the imports and exports prior to 1820.
There ara 1398 State banks, with a chartered
capital of $344,000,000, and a circulation of
nearly $200,000,000. 'rho Secretary does not
deem it desirable to dispense with these, but
says that the smaller denominations of notes
should be withdrawn. The Superintendent of
the Mint estimates the gold and silver remain.
ing in the country at $200,000,000, while the
Secretary estimates it at $250,000,000. The
report devotes snitch apace to the consideration
of currency, bunking and kindred matters.
