had been stationed late on the preceding

It was nearly three o'clock in the after-.

pearal upon the stage. The "dead"
and "dying"—the .itu mortal Sheriff Jones
—rode rapidly into Lawrence, at the
head of twenty.:five mounted men; and
[as he passed along the !lints of the troops,
he was received with. deafening shouts of
lapplause. II is, presence was the signal
for action, and a tille.ooll fur the. outra

!Atchison then addressed Lis forces, in
languagel not sufficiently well selected
ifor ears - polite; and then Marched the
whole colaa.ti to within a short distance
of the hotel, where they halted. Jones
now informed Col. Eldridge, the propri
etor, that the hotel. must be .destroyed ;
he was acting under orders; he had writs,
issued ; by the'First District Court of the
United States, to destroy the Free State
Hotel, and the offices of the ILruld of
PreedOrii and Fier State. The Grand
Jury at ; Lem:Lipton had indicted thew as

Urine tin, hour and a half to .remove his
family,,and furniture, after which time
the demolition commented, and was
prosecuted with , an. earnestness that
would harkdeum . .o - redit to abetter cause.
In the msantime, the newspaper offices
had been assailed, the- presses broken . to
pieces; and these,* with the type and oth
er material thrown into the Kansas ricer.
The following extract from
,the report of
these !transactions, ,given in the columns
of, the Lecompton Caton, the most rabid
pro-shivery paper in Kansas, the Sput—:
tar Sovereign exeepted, is too significant
not to be read with interest:
"Whilst the work of destruction, was
going on at the printing offices, the bow-
hartrinent of the hotel, a strongly coll.!

LA:tees; and whilst* flames were 'doing!
their destructive work within, heavy can-

conflagration,. the noise of falling walla;
and timbers, and the roar of the artillery
were mingled the most frantic yells 'of!
sitisfiletion that constantly burst from I
the "law and' tirder"Aevers of Kansas I
Territtiry. Jones• was iti extacies; -He
!sat upon his !lorse, eonteinplating. 'the
