Biddeford Union and Eastern Journal (Newspaper) - February 5, 1858, Biddeford, MaineThe Union and Eastern journal. Biddeford february 5, 1858. Litter from est Crft Ary Sutton. It would a win to be a of gation to adduce still further testimony to Tho Inforno till any that a been practice in Kane a and which a now receiving the endorsement of a resident Buchanan. The last Tif Timony in a letter published by sex scat Cunt Stanton addressed to the people of the l United the territory by an almost unanimous demand soiled upon me of the acting govern or to of Nevae an extra session of the Lee lature in order to enable them peaceably to protect the wrongs evidently contemplated by the adoption of Thia Constitution. There Wae no Law to Manieh Fraude in election re Turna. The people were Mth Nealy excited and it Wae the opinion of the coolest men in the territory that without a Call of the legislature the election under the Constitution could not Bare taken place without collision and bloodshed the meeting of the legislature directed the at state in which he More than continue tent Ion of the people from the Achamee of the statement of gov. Walker. It will be Tomms a Pon which they were brooding that or. Stanton went to the substituted the excitement of debate and in territory a pro slavery Man but Tho out rage of the Border Ruffian proved too much for Hun Ami for endeavouring to with sonic in partiality and Justice he was removed from the office of acting governor by the president. We have room ouly fora it ortion of his letter. He commences by Taring that the of hoc waa conferred on him without Hia to lilt , Ami that to went to the territory a did gov. Walker desiring to use Hia Best Endeavor to conciliate the people of Kansas and to convince them that they should to justly dealt by. Lie confesses to in Imph Iriece knowledge of affaire in Kansas until he went there supposing that the great Mata of the people Weie did Ati tied with the la a Cal government and denied Tho Validity of Laws if Kwid on Ali Iii by the fraud Ami violence of a pm Ople. In order to prevent the renewal of civil War he joined in the assurances Given by gov. Walker that the Hople of Kansas should be protected from the Ira la and violence to which Thuv bad Boeti , he says it was too late to induce the people to go into the june he action for Delegans to the convention. The registration required by Law had been in Perteet in All the counties Ami Hud been wholly omitted in one halt of Teui nor could the people of these die France Viaud counties tote in any adjacent county an a Lieen falsely Auch if them a subsequently ump n census or registry of own the delegates Clio Aen were not admitted to mat in the convention. Nevertheless it is not to he denied that the Grunt eur trial fact which controlled the whole Case was the utter a unto Confidence by the jux Joule in tie whole machinery of tie territorial government. They alleged that the local officers in All instances Vetti gation for that of fierce and warlike a tied and enabled representatives to Deviso mean for counteracting Tho wrongs which they justly apprehended. Recent events have shown that apprehensions were Well founded. Enormous frauds have been perpetrated at the precincts of Oxford Shawnee and Kickapoo and it May Well be believed that this result was actually designed by the artful leaders who devised the plan and Frame work of the is Compton Constitution. 1 have lately been at Shawnee and i have seen and conversed with persons who were at Oxford on the Day of election. The frauds committed Are notorious. And though dishonest Persona May deny them and May fill the channels of pub lie information with shameless representation to the contrary they can be easily established beyond All controversy. It was to enable the people to shield them a elves from these Frauda and to give Legal sep Redon to hatred and rejection of the instrument which permitted them and was to he curried by them that 1 called the legislature together. In my judgement Tho people had a Lair claim to be Peard on this subject through legislature. The organic confided to me the discretion of convening that body in extra suasion. The president of the u. O. Had no rightful authority to exercise that discretion for me. He had the Power of in iut a Vul and Nuch control a that Power gives him. But i would have cheerfully submitted to removal and consequent Lues of favor with the Ive aident rather than occupy the Pue Tiou of governor and Refue to the people an Opportunity to assert most essential rights and to protect themselves against the basest frauds and wrongs Ever attempted upon an outraged Community. Not having been informed of the ground of my rvs gaol 1 know them Only through the new a ii r reports to the effect that in calling the legislature 1 disobeyed the instruction of the Lac Sidet. 1 had no instruction bearing on this subject and there was no Triue to obtain them even if i had Felt bound to substitute the presidents will for that discretion which Tho Ortunio confided in uie. Tho convening of the legislature undoubtedly prevented difficulty and secured peace. Were it important 1 am were unscrupulous Puni nos who had pro a Trident 1 could establish this position by piously Defru used them in the elections and mos. Indubitable facts hut it is sufficient who were ready to Raj Cut the Ruiu outrages again that even if the intruders from abroad should nut he permitted to Ove. Power them they would he cheated by false re now to suy that the Petcu of the territory Wue not in fact disturbed and whatever up preaches were made towards such a result l i., to a. V i were wholly attributable to it the policy of the tun., which it would not be possible for the administration in censuring my Acta and re previous Day. Tbs girl protested that it would not be for he died in Ganada. Press Ting in denying her identity or. Ring proceeded to Loren Street where Peter Myers the father of the girl was living and Aro Uatha him from bed told him he would like to go Down to the jail and see Hie daughter. On entering the cell or. Ring Balda lamp in Myers Fiamos and asked Julia. Who is this in t this Yoor father a the girl immediately began to talk vehemently to Fra Oeh to her hither urging him to disown her in order to give plausibility to her stories and save her from punishment. The old Man Wae greatly Ore Roome and finally the girl melted into tears and acknowledged that he was her father but excused her running away from him on the grounds of ill treatment and manifested very Little penitence. She insisted with Crea Pertinacity to the last that her Story i the murder in Biddeford wre strictly True hut the Public can judge Bow much credit should he Given to her assertions. The next morning both her father and her Mother visited her in jail and convening a Long time in preach the girl seem 3d simply penitent and much affected and Tho interview was had and touching. On wed malay the girl was taken to a gusto and placed in the Hospital from which place she will probably soon be released a her insanity evidently requires different treatment from that administered by or. Liar Low. Kjor Union and sour nol. Friday morning feb. 6, 1858. Editorial correspondence. Augusta Jan. 30, 1858. In looking Over the record of legislative work for Tho week a presented in the trip weeklies journal and age i find Little or nothing that will pay for to publishing in a weekly paper. The destructive spirit or the reformatory spirit among Tho members has cropped us pretty extensively in the shape of Diacre and sundry articles directing the judiciary committee to enquiry whether this or that provision of the Kov ised statutes would not be improved by certain amendments or whether the Public weal would not be promoted by Sozio new Law. If i were a Novice in these matters and did not know that by far the largest part of these misses hurled to the judiciary committee originated in the very laudable Aud patriotic desire of the members who propel them to let constituents a now through the tapers that they were alive i might think the statutes were to be torn to shreds and to cry out in behalf of the icon la our of whom 1 am for governor and Secretary to Devrol.

The com Mitten have settled upon Tho general principles to be embodied in the provisions of Tho Bill and they Are such As to have no doubt will be acceptable to the friends of Temperance generally in the state. A 0. C. The Temperance journal. We Havo noticed not without regret soveral articles published recently in the Temperance journal which in on judgment neither in temper nor argue Vincnt Havo been calculated to promote unanimity of feeling among the Fri ads of prohibition or strengthen Tho Best in to rests of the Temporo Neo cause. These articles seem to two origin to a suspicion in the minds of the writers that the friends of prohibition in the Legisla Tare Aro influenced More than Thoy should be by partisan considerations or Aro timid and hesitating in discharging duties. We say to our friends of the journal not doubting sincerity m the frankness of a Friend that we do not like ourselves and we know Many As Good friends of prohibition As can tie found in Tho state do not like Tho dogmatic Al and dictation no 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 its own convictions the recent votes in Kaniat and if Tho Bill docs not suit it to give reasons for its opposition but Tho journal a a .tv1 Quot i a i. A.

And of the 4 the 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 to peo tie of Kansas is increasing. Followed As this of wickedness without doubt would be by civil War everything which Deni nostrates in such a manner that it can not to Gai Sayed any of the outrages to which the Puoplo of Kansas have been subjected by Border Ruffian Vio Lonco official corruption and the Devi try of the on Mies of the people of Kansas should receive special consideration. It is fortunate for the Causo of the people of Kansas that the Story of 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 Niter official document some of them emanating from sources in noway favourable to the cause of free state to non in the territory have the Story of almost unheard of outrage und violence to.

There is another subject of still Graver pm it Orzanco of which we have a word to say. When the legislature cuing together there w As a settled conviction in the Public mind that the Public necessities did not demand a lengthened session. This conviction was the result of the Well understood fact that with Tho exception of the liquor question there was no business of great Imp kit a Taco and which would require prolonged consideration to be brought Forward.

A disposition of this kind heretofore has not been productive of beneficial results and we Are Quito certain that its exercise now will to equally in wac As Ever. We Havo no sympathy with those who arc Lennder with suspicions that the Osgi Santure will not do All that reasonably can to expected from it and will in duo time so As to satisfy Tho friends of prohibition in the state. We look with entire Confidence to it for Tho submission of a Law recognizing the principle of pro libation and containing such provisions As will prevent in n Good degree the Sale of intoxicating drinks As a most certainly we shall not coat Plain Ireina Turnly and by our complaints strengthen Tho common in ctn. It will be time enough to utter the word of remonstrance when we detect any disposition in the legislature to shirk conceded re in it is abilities. We stand on the ground Flint the party in Power in the state pledged itself to place before the it Copic of the state for acceptance or rejection a Bill which should recognize the Principio of prohibition and the provisions of which should be so framed As to give efficiency to measures taken for the suppression of intemperance. We is sure oar friends of the journal that we hold the legislature to its responsibilities in this matter and if it is shirked or evaded we shall to with those who will hold it accountable. Thus far nothing has been done by the legislature to null Nirize n suspicion that it has Tho least desire to shirk the question on Tho contrary we Havo reason to know that the committee having the matter in charge Are maturing and will report in a few Days if it Lias not already been a Lone 11 Bill which in its general features will to generally acceptable to the friends of prohibition in the state. We Are not so inconsiderate As to suppose every provision of the Bill will be perfect or meet Tho concurrence of every Friend of prohibition. In this matter there must be some diversity of opinion As to details but if in the main it is right both in Principio Aud detail it should be accepted by Tho friends of prohibition and they should unite in the Effort to obtain for it the largest bios Siulc popular Sanction. To submit to our friends of Tho journal that a carping captions spirit exorcised towards men who agree with them in principle Ami who arc Labouring to attain the same ends and unjust filings against them calling in que Tsiou motives or groundless accusations of boing actuated by political considerations will be More mischievous than beneficial. In 1855, we were called on to support a Law right in principle but containing As we then thought provisions of doubtful expediency. To did so without hesitation As we never separate from friends so Long As they remain steadfast to principle though we May differ with them As to details a and we shall not now by undue suspicion or Causeless complaint give Aid and Comfort to the common enemy. To desire to Sec the friends of prohibition strongly and wisely. When Tho expected 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 Are capable of making shall be wanting to commend it to Tho popular will and to secure for it such a triumphant endorsement As will forever Settle favourably the principle of prohibition in the legislation of the state. The remark we have made arc dictated in no unkind spirit to Tho we award to it sincerity let it be tolerated to its Friend a and Reserve its fire for the in Civ. Fits of Acosta. On tuesday evening last the saw Mill and machine shop at the East end of the Kennebec dam was destroyed by fire bom on the saw Mill $4,. 000�? no in Siranos on the shop $3,000 of partially insured. Should be remembered was held under in of Tho territorial legislature approved by the then acting gov. Stanton was rejected by a majority of Moro than ten thousand notch. Tie Voto i a Ioctl by counties and summed up As follows for the Lecompton Constitution with slavery 138 for the Lecompton Constitution with out slavery 24 Aga into the Lecompton Constitution 10,226 majority against the Constitution 10,062 looking at Tho document it w ill be Vicic Eivid that the vote at Tho election held on the 21�t of december under the authority of the Lecompton convention when no vote against Tho Constitution was allowed was Only 0,<12 and of those votes the signers of these official documents tells us that they Havo no hesitation in saying that the Prestil bulk of the a Voten Irene fraudulent. Moro than to Ihrk thousand of these Voles octo 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 Lecompton fraud on the people of Kansas one course and one Only reinning for them and in taking it they will be sustained by fellow citizens in the free states with an almost unanimous Public sentiment and Flint is to reject the Constitution drive those who Are endeavouring to Force it upon them from the territory and put in operation a government made by themselves and rely tag on the god of Battles fight for its preservation. There was also an election for state officers. At this election a Large part of Tho free state men refused to vote declaring that they would not by so doing recognize the Validity of the Lecompton Constitution mid saying if they did and they should fairly elect the free state ticket Tho scandalous Calhoun would by fraudulent counting deprive them of the Triumph they might gain. Notwithstanding this a division of the free state men those who did vote it appears by the report of the presiding officers Calhoun dissenting succeeded.
