Each for Tho people and preservation Lor the Laws. Contenting myself however with the lessons of sex Eric acc and Peep ing into Trio future and seeing Liose or Ders successively disappearing in Tho unlimited sea of legislation inexpedient my Only fear is that the physical strength of Tho reporters will give out under Tho wearisome labor imposed upon them of copying orders destined to a ignoble and Early grave. Seriously however there Are several grave objections to the Multi plication of these orders. Their consideration cannot but tend to lengthen Tho session and in this View Tho members who introduce them would do the state Good service by adopting some other Mode of conveying information to their constituents of continuing life. I have a very Strong conviction that the people want a Short session More than alteration of the Laws and Hope to be allowed con tenement for a few years under the Laws embodied in Tho new the Visioni. Of course there May be a necessity for some changes in Tho Laws or legislation in a few ens of required to a Orient Manifest error but it re Quiret no Grout Brav Orv to Hazard the assertion that no great inconvenience would he suffered by the people if the legislature should Rise without making a single change in the Lawn except to Cor rect Manifest error. There is another subject of still Graver in Orzanco of which we have a word to Par. When the legislature came together there was a settled conviction in the Public mind that the Public necessities did not demand a lengthened session. This conviction was the result of the w Ell understood fact that with the exception of the liquor question there was no business of great in or sauce and which would require prolonged consideration to be brought Forward. The state of the finance of the state was admonishing a Short session and there were other reasons too obvious to require mention for a speedy a Journo Cut of the j legislature. Nothing a occurred to change the condition of Public affairs under which the legislature Caino to Gether yet i fear that the just exp Octa j Lions of the people will l c disappointed if their servant Aro not reminded now Aud then of the importance of making their session a Short one. I notice that our neighbor of the advertiser has touched up Tho legislature on this Point and As it is in conformity with the wishes of the people Aud i know Jar factly attainable i agree with him in the self evident propriety of a Short Aud working session of the legislature. A very considerable portion of the time thin week has been work than wasted in discussing a petition made by citizen of Franklin county making some tenons charge of official corruption against the county attorney. The petition desired that the House should originate measures for the in Eael uncut of the county at Torney but it was very properly contended that the courts were open to the to Toner and he should go to them for re dress if wrong had been committed. The House after two Days discussion referred the petition to the judiciary and there upon Tho age to whom the smallest mat Ter is a godsend if it will o by diverts at Tention from attempted Devil tries in Washington Seta up a lengthened trowl about the republicans denying Tho right of petition All of which of course just both. I understand that the committee on the liquor Law Hare their work in a Good state of forwardness and will report some time the coming week. The com Mittee Hare settled upon the general principles to be embodied in the Provis ions of to Bill and they Are such As to Hare no doubt will be acceptable to the friends of Temperance generally in the state. . The Temperance journal. We have noticed not without regret several articles published recently in the Temperance journal which in on judg ment neither in temper nor argument Havo been calculated to promote unanimity of feeling among the Fri ads of prohibition or strengthen the Best interests of the tempera no cause. These articles seem to two their origin to a suspicion in the minds of the writers that the friends of prohibition in Tho Legisla Ture Are influenced Mora than they should be by partisan considerations or Aro timid and hesitating in discharging their duties. We say to our friends of the journal not doubting their sincerity in the frankness of a Friend that we do not like ourselves and we know Many As Good friends of prohibition As can be found in Tho state do not like Tho dog magical and dictation al manner of the journal when speaking of a prohibitory Law and what it shall contain. It has no warrant to speak for All the friends of prohibition in the state and declare what shall not be or what shall be inserted in the Bill which is now being prepared by a committee of Tho legislature. It Lias a perfect right to speak it own convictions and if Tho Bill does not suit it to give Rea sons for its opposition but Tho journal should recollect that the friends of prohibition have never conceded it Tho right of making a procrustes a Standard by which every one of them should be Nina ured. A disposition of this kind hereto fore a not been productive of beneficial results and we Are quite certain that its exercise now will to equally unwise As Ever. To Havo no sympathy with those who arc pervaded with suspicion that the legislature will not do All that reasonably can be expected from it and will in due time so act As to satisfy the friends of prohibition in the state. We look with entire Confidence to it for Tho submission of a Law recognizing the principle of prohibition and containing such provisions As will prevent in a Good Degroe the Sale of intoxicating drinks As a beverage. Most certain we shall not cd Plain prematurely and by our complaints strengthen Tho common enemy. It will be time enough to utter the word of remonstrance when we detect any disposition in the legislature to shirk conc did responsibilities. We stand on the ground that the party in Power in the state pledged itself to place before the eople of the state for their accept acc or rejection a Bill which should recognize Tho principle of prohibition and Tho Provis ions of which should be so framed As to o with those who will hold it accountable. Thus far nothing has been done by Tho legislature to Mutlu Rizo a suspicion that it has Tho least desire to shirk the question on Tho contrary we Havo reason to know that Tho committee having the matter in charge Are Matur ing and will report in a few Days if it hit not already Boon done a Bill which in its general features will to generally acceptable to the friends of prohibition in Tho state. We no not to inconsiderate an to sup pose every provision of the Bill will to perfect or meet Trio concurrence of every Friend of prohibition. In this mutter there must be some diversity of opinion he to details but if in the main it is right both in principle and detail it should be accepted by the friends of prohibition and they should unite in the Effort to of Tain for it the largest possible popular Sanction. To submit to our friends of the journal that a carping cautious spirit exercised towards men who agree with them in principle and who Are Labouring to attain the same ends and unjust flings against them calling in question their motives or groundless accusations of boing actuated by political considerations will be More mischievous than Beck tibial. In 1855, we were called on to support a Law right in principle but containing As we then thought provisions of doubt Ful expediency. To did so without hesitation As we never separate from friends so Long As they remain steadfast to Prin Ciple though we May differ with them As to details and we shall not now by undue suspicion or Causeless complaint give Aid and Comfort to the common enemy. To Desiro to Sec the friends of prohibition act strongly and wisely. When the expect cd Law comes before Tho people if it contains Tho principle of prohibition vigorously set Forth in its provisions it will have our Hearty support and no Endeavor we arc capable of making shall be wanting to commend it to Tho popular will and to Securo for it such a triumphant endorsement As will forever Settle favourably the principle of prohibition in the legislation of the state. Tho remarks we have made arc dicta Ted in no unkind spirit to Tho journal. To award to it sincerity let it to Toler ated to its friends and a Servo its fire for Tho enemy. 0 Fin w Acosta.

The recent votes in Kansas. Tho subjoined proclamation by gov. Popover and Tho presiding officer of the Terri Toriati Council and Alouso of Stepro Senta Tives of Kansas of the results of the elections of the 21st of dec. And of the 4th of january we publish a part of the history of events in Kansas and with the View of keeping our readers fully informed in relation to matters that Havo transpired in that territory. It is said by letter writers from Washington that the probability of the adoption of the Lecompton Constitution notwithstanding its emphatic condemnation by the people of Kansas is increasing. Followed As this act of wickedness without doubt would be by civil War everything which demonstrates in such a manner that it can not to Gai Sayed any of the outrages to which tie Puoplo of Kansas have been subjected by Border Ruffian Vio Lonco official corruption and the Devi try of the enemies of the people of Kansas should receive special consideration. It is fortunate for the cause of the people of Kansas that the Story of their wrongs and outrages is told by official documents As Well As by Tho unofficial statements of writers who Havo been cognizant of the events that have transpired in the Terri tory. Official document after official document some of them emanating from to urea in noway favourable to the cause of free state men in the territory have Carroli Oratch the Story of almost unheard of outrage and violence to which the people of Kansas have been subjected. The proclamation of gov. Denver shows that the Lecompton Constitution at the election held january 4, which election it should be remembered was held under an act of Tho territorial legislature approved by the then acting gov. Stanton was rejected by a majority of Moro than its thousand notch. The Voto is Given by counties and summed up As follows for the Lecompton Constitution nth slavery 138 for the Lecompton Constitution with out slavery 24 against the Lecompton Constitution 10,226 majority against the Constitution 10,002 looking at the document it will Imp pct Civco Flint the vote at the election held on the 21�t of december under the authority of the Lecompton convention when no Voto against Tho Constitution was allowed was Only 0,712 and of these votes the signers of these official Docu ments tells us that they have no hesitation in saying that the Mif bulk of these Mien Irene fraudulent. More than Tirek Liioi 4and of these Voles Wero thrown at Kickapoo Lawrence and Oxford places not yet open to settlement. Under this state of facts should the administration crushing Down the principle of popular sovereignty succeed in forcing the la Compton fraud on the people of Kansas one course and one Only remains for them and in taking it they will be sustained by their fellow citizens in the free Stales with an almost unanimous pubic sentiment and that is to reject Tho Constitution drive those who Are endeavouring to Force it upon them from the territory and put in operation a government made by them selves and re lying on the god of Battles fight for its preservation. To Micro was also an election for state officers. At this election a Inge part of the free state men refused to Voto Declar ing that they would not by so doing recognize the Validity of the Lecompton Constitution and saying if Uliey did and they should fairly a acct Tho Freo state ticket the scandalous Calhoun would by fraudulent counting deprive them of t pc Triumph they might gain. Xot withstand ing this division of Tho free state men those who did vote it appears by the re port of the presiding officers Calhoun dissenting succeeded.
