T. S. CHASE-Sir: After an absence
From old Potter, and-a residence of two
years in Kansas, fourteen mouths of which
time has been ore of the most severe and
continued. drouths I ever saw, LaddresS
you a few lines .for publication in the
JOURNAL, that its numerous readers may
see the condition of southern Kansas.
We have had only 8 inches of water fall
since August 1859, While the year before
We bad 65 inches of water fall (a common
average);_ the year before, that 85 inches.
5 his fact of itself is sufficient to show that
our condition is of the worst kind, while
the largest poi tion of Missouri is near the
same. I-last week, took a2count.of What
thirty-one of our inhabitants raised each
of the two Past years, while ai.other•man
took the balance of the town. In '59
there was sowedto . wheat 34 acres—rais
ed 293 bushels; in '6O there was sown
142 acres—raised-- 22 bushels. Corn
planted in '59; 330'acres—raised 17,850.
bushels. Corn planted in '6O was 474
acres—raised 729 bushels. Potatoes rais,
ed in '59 was 1050 bushels—in 'GO, five
bushels: -Value of garden -products in
'59 was s4l3—in 'GO it was $l5. Amount
of old corn on baud, 700 bisliels. The
31 families number 150 souls. The whole
of Southern and Western Kansas is in
same condition. I sold two 'hogs in Au
gust for 80,60 which I paid $2O for last
November.. Stock cannot be sold, as
there is no money, nor fodder for winter
ing. The question tray be asked, What
has become-of the surplus of the old crop?
I answer, sold to pay mortgages and in
terest for Land Warrants to preempt with.;
We yesterday Lad a county meeting on
this matter; its doings will be published;
in the Lawrence Republican. In cense- I
quence of a ("mat destitution and want of i
clothing suitable for the rigor of the (tom-
ing winter, and means to procure it, they
requested those having friends East, to I
write to them to take contributions in
cloth or clothing, box them up and send
them to their friends . and acquaintances
here for distribution to the suffering.
Direct the boxes to any one they know,
care of N. McCracken, at Leavenworth,
K. T., and take a receipt and mail it to
the person the box is directed to, giving;
a statement of the articles. I mention
this as it was thought to be better than
to depend on and pay agents—believing;
that what you wanted, was to know our I
condition, and many would be ready to;
help. Our soil is as productive as any in
the States, and Stands a drouth . better
than any I-ever saw. It is a black allu
vial soil from one to three feet deep, then
-a black or red clay from four to ten feet,
underlain with lime rock, the rock crop-
ping out on the sides of ravines and bluffs.
I ant satisfied that if we had rolled the'
ground after planting we should have
half a crop, as what corn has been rais
ed was rolled. I sowed 10 acres to Win-,
ter Wheat and two acres to Spring Wheat I
—harvested none; planted 60 acres to
Corn—have not a busliel,—yet, I am well
satisfied with the country in general. It ;
has lot en healthy the past year, and nearly
so the year before. My respects to all.l
J. L. RooKs.
can safely certify that the - facts set
forth iu the above letter, in relation to
the drouth and the wants of the people,
[The statements contained in the above
are doubtless plain facts, and exhibit a
condition of affairs there that should at
once enlist the sympathies of the friends
of Freedom in the East. Both of the
above gentlemen are well known to the
people of this county— , Mr. Rooks having
emigrated from Bingham township, and
.11lr. Olney from llarrisou. We hope
that not only their relatives and friends
in that section, but the people of this
county generally, wili at once make as lib
eral contributions as possible. We have
all an excellent opportunity now to make
sabstantial-,tAnifestation of our appreci
ation of .the noble sacrifices which the
people of Kansas have made in confirm
ing Kansas to the cause of Freedom.
Will not the Freemen of Potter nobly
and liberally respond to the appeal, now
that the opportunity is offered? Let a
Receiver be appointed in, each township,
at once, so that aid may reach the suffer
ing before winter sets in.—Elm.Jouw.]

Give us that banner.
, Z-Cir Our old friend, D. W.C. James,
retired from the Warren Ledger last,
Week, Mr. Thos. Clemens -taking his
place. James' valedictory is pungent
and characteristic. He thus talks of the
Buchanan party :
'AU the politics of the country is reduced
by the force of circumstances to mere
sectionalism, we would - be worse than in•
fidels did we not side - with our own kin
dred. In the, present canvass Lincoln
represents northern sectionalism and
Breckinridge the sectionalism of the
South, and if the contest is confined to
these two, we do not hesitate to .declare
that our sympathies arc with the former.
We cab, in no event, do' arr. act which
might inure to the benefit of secession
disunion ticket of Breckinridge and Lane.
We consider them traitors to the govern
ment, ar.d as such deserve the execra
tions of all true patriots. Personally en
tertaining these views..l cannot support
the electors named at •Reading.: Fifteen
of the twenty-seven have declared that
they were in favor of the disunion tieket,
and my arm shall wither before it shall
cast a vote for such nominees."
E. Z. OLNEY
James - is a genidl fellow,—life ourself,
too easy and tender toward delinquents
to succeed well in newspaperdom. W e
wish him great success as a borer—as w'•
learn he is going into the Oil business .
We hope he will strike a 1400 barrel well
that Will pump itself for a straight year
without. diminution, (of the oil), and have
lots of barrels to put it in.
One of the issues depending on the
; late State election was that of a successor
I to Win. Bigler iu the U. S. Senate. We
I did not at any tithe doubt tl.at the Leg-
I islature would be largely Republican ;:on
the contrary, we rather feared , the major
ity would be too large for the welfare of
the party. Too great success is apt to
relax the 'energy of a party; though this
l is less true of popular majorities than of
representative. We trust, however, that
the action of the Legislature elect will
be such as to put it out of the reach of
reproach from this or any other point: of
view. Many sterling men have been re
turned by the people; while Many of the
new members, in either House, are men of
prominence and good " repute at home,
and will doubtless serve this constituents
with fide:itY and'honor, while preserving
their party fealty intact. The election
of a Senator will test their party sincerity
and at the same time prove their repro.
sentative sagacity. To select a man fore,
that poit who will be an honor to the
body in which he . is to. set, and at the.]
same time a candid, firm and unflinching
representative of State interests and party
principles, is no light • undertaking; and
xegnires political sagacity, morel '5l-illness

standard of representative capacity in
tliese days Of degenerated politics and
corrupted partisanism. Pennsylvania has
no lack ofmen Trom among-whom tttinof
able Selection eawbe made, and WO' are
strong in the faith that" the opportunity
will be unproved. ' .
In looking over the . names already
presented—names familiar alike to the
. nation and the people of the State—we
have no trouble to make oar selection,
and we feel no hesitation to express our
choice. -DAVID WILMOT, the pioneer of
the-principles 'of the Republican party in
the Halls of Congress, stands out in bold
relief as deserving the- honor of leading
in the redemption of our State's honor
and interests from the
‘ disgrace and des
olation. brought upon them by Bu
chanan and "Bigler. In demanding this
timely recognitiOn of his .right to a: seat
in the -Senate, Northern Pennsylvania,
desires none but honorable competition, I
and, proposes no sacrifice of the claims of
others; she only asks that he Who was
first to detect and expose the ~.Southern .
bias of the . Deinocratic patty, and -whose
'principles then laid down have become
the foundation of the Republican party,
and in 'the Acid space of ten years have i
wen the support of a majority of the:
States Of the Union—shall be dUly award-1
ed the honor ho has FO richly won. That .
the North is justly entitled. to the seat,
and deserving of it, too, is beyond a rea
sonaLle questioning; and . who shall the
North cr West present more fit for or
deserving of the honor:than David Nil
toot? There will be objections to liim,
to be sure, as there will also be • to any
candidate that may be presented; but
those objections are not sufficiently im- .
portant to prevent the recognition of the
many and' prodomitiating qualities.in 'his
favor. He will not permit his own pe
culiar views of the questions' of the_ day
to stand in the-way of the State's , well
known interests ;,neither will he lend his
influence to the benefit of the few at the
sacrifice of the welfare of the majority.
Every true Republican, in any section of
the State or Union, will rejoice when so
true a champion of their principles as.
David Wilmot shall take his seat in the
Senate of the United States. '
Crime and what Causes It.
The greatest obstacle to the supremacy
of Law in the free States, is the traffic
in intoxicating drinks. There is scarce
a session of any criwinal Court in- any
County in our State, that does not wit
ness the trial of some one caused directly
or indirectly by this traffic, and the pub
lic sentiment in favor of enforcing any
law is constantly washed and undermined
by the advocates and apologists of whis
key selling and drinking.
These men habitually violate all the
laws of thc'State on this subject and they
induce their victims to swear falsely; in
order to seteen thew, they employ able
Lawyers to exhaust their talents and in
genuity in making their conduct respect
able, and thug respect for any law is
For if it is in accordance, with the obli
gations every person owes to society to
violate these laws, then it is creditable to
voilate every law: For the-laws restrain
the business of drunkard-making, are
the n most salutary, and most necessary to
the good order of society of any that we
have. To undermine and set at defiance
these, is to.dcbmich public senthnent,and
make the enforcement of any law a very
difficult t sk.
That the laws against the sale, of in:
toxicating dtittks ought to be .enforced
every day experience proves. That the
use of these drinks is the one great source•
of crime, few sensible people doubt.
Nearly every exchange that we take
up contains an item in proof of this-state:
went. We furnish in'anotlief eolhinti; - a
letter from Pike—evidence that ought to
arrest the attention of every inan,'womao
and child in our aountv.
We cut froin the Chicago Congrega
tional Herald, the -following item ;and
comments, which are equally . convincing.
The Herald introduces'its item in this
. The subject has been suggested by tin item
of news that comes from Denver City. in the
Pike's Peak region. James A. Gordon, a
young man, has there been recently convicted
of a most revolting murder. In the following
brief paragraph the whole story is told:
-"Gordon was a native of Boston, but came
to this region (Denver City) from Council
Bluffs, lowa, in tile fall of 185 d, end was one
of the first Settlers in Denver. Be is only
twenty-three years -old, but is the owner of
considerable property here, and for several
years has contributed largely to the support
of his aged parents: •He had many friends
here, and seems, when Sober, to be a' yOung
'man of pleasing address and gentlemanly in
stincts ;. but liquor made Mm a fiend."
In those last six words there is implied a
life blighted in its very morning hoar, a death
of ignominy, and perhaps a soul lost forever.
Crazed with drink, young Gordon, about the
middle. of, last July, Attacked' without the
slightest' ptiovocation, a haradesi grelgner, a
I German naiued Gantz, from; Lockport, Ni.Y.i
and after beating him brutally, drew,a pistol
and shot hits ,through the head. ..The. mut
florer lied, hut after some months was .arrested
and has now just' had his trial' at. IDenver,
with' the' result-indicated above.. The Sc..
count we are. following : says: ""When the
aignments were chised on Sunday evening;
the prisoner_was allowed to address the jury
lie spoke for fifteen minutes, asserting that, he
was utterly . unconscious of committing the
deed at the time, and had now no recollection
of it,•he was so completely underthe influence
What a sad history is this! And yet, how
common! Eiet, too, in one respect the same
history. Always one feature, and the chief
est of all, appears. The. devil in the: human
I,,eart will never fully rouse himself until .one
particular stinations is felt: But that sum
mons he always obeys. There may been
a foregoing„lnprderous intention,• or not.
hate and passion may have lifted the burning
glass tb the lips, in order that the fiend with
inmight be stirred Sip to action and embold
ened to seize the dagger, the pistol: or the
torch. - Or there may have been nothing of
this kind, and murder may have come only of
the madness engendered by the bowl. In
either case, the etimulunt is the Forking
cause of the crime.' There might be piety if
there were not intoxication ;''there might be
restraining fear of consequences, or a subdu
ing sense of the sacredness of life, were not
the Main ern: d with the accursed drink.
But, withAntoxication come madness, vio
lence, blood, death and perdition ! : .
The Popular Vote for Congress-
Below we hat.' e carefully prepared from
the official 'returns a table exhibitieg the
popular vote for Members of Congress in
!this State, front which it will be seen that
while some. 10 751 less votes were cast
for Governor, (total vote for Governor,.
492,642), the popular -majority for Re
publican Congressmen, over all opposi
tion, exceeds that for Governor by' 7,293-
votes. rills fact is significant of the
popular . feeling in the Keystone State
with respect to the great issue of Free
versus Slave labor. We are indebted to

above figures, ourself 'correcting - the fig

Bow Can a Free Pulpit be Se-
The following statement which we take.
from the N: Y. Eve.' Post, deserves the
'serious attention of all persons who desire
present sins to be fearlessly rebuked :
"At the recent Unitarian Convention in
Massachusetts, Rev. Mr. Pierpont expressed
his sentiments .on the freelom of the pulpit
with great boldness. No man who is a man
(he,said) can stand in a Unitarian pulpit and
speak out Ids 'whole mind. If he attempts it,
there will be found three men in his congre
gation who wit use their cants with success
to unhorse him. One shall be a manufactur
er or se.ler of intoxicatiiw.drink, and another
a political trader, and the ' third interested in
some way in cotton: Ile alluded to his own
labors as a pioneer in-the West ; but maintain
ed that there is everywhere a want of free
dom on the part of the preacher:4. They can
not'aitack sin that now exists, but arc only
allowed to denounce the Scribes and Phari
seei. He would thank anybody who could
see how there : can be a tree pulpit to tell him
of the way."
Mr. Pierpont being a Unitarian, very
naturally spoke of Uliterian pulpits; but
the'sanie difficulty isi apparent in every
large denominatiob. Now and Then a
_minister is Leo -bold, and determined not
to-be flittercd in speech, will say whae,he
thinks the times require to ba said. But .
such a minister wilt meet with constant
persecution and trouble from the members
of his own church ;• so that all those min
isters who love ease, and quiet, and, pros
peiity in . the church, simply preach
aniinst. the Scribes, and let rum-drinkers,
and. baby-stealers take the front seats.
So long as this state of things continues,
so long as laymen, aiad l
even those making
no profession of religion, are fervent in
working for Temperaiwe and other need
ed reforms; it will be difficult to induce
thinking people to increase their attach
ment for the bhurch. We should be glad
to see an immediate change in this respect,
all over the country, and especially in this
county, we should like to see the various
chniebes conzmanding the respect and
confidence of all the people, by. their ac
tivity in every practical measure for the
gob(' of community. To secure this de
sirab'm clianne, and to secure,* rat tai of
AeliOon of any permanenCe hr note, we
think there must first be, established/tee
pulpfts, where all eios fcarleStily
rebuked. It seems to our,pitor . compre?=
itensien, that a.bold, persistent - and of
festive opposition to Inteuiperance, the
tis'C'of Tobacco. and kindredices,_would
be stronger evidence of thc(Pivinity of
the Religion of the: speaker:than any ar
