An important statement of Acta relating to the manner in which the friends of the National administration in the sooth with at Chiao at their Bead Baa been made through the St. Louis Democrat by George s. Park esq., who was the owner of the luminary recently destroyed by the Atchi mob. His statements Are important for the revelation u.7 my of of Laid schemes of the Squall sovereignty demons to fasten slavery upon the unwilling people of k Santa. End embroil the of entry in trouble. And Ishi tit we make copious extract front or. L Ark statements which he make Over Hie own name that our Reader May be made acquainted with the real fruit of our " National democratic " believing d. R. Atchison a dangerous Man the luminary steadily opposed his re election to the United state Senate and supported col. Benton the consequences were he let Loose Bis hireling presses upon that paper but they got Battle to their hearts Content and retired disco fitted from the Field. About this time the self defensive association was formed at Weston but the masses put it Down. R. Atchison d f. Stringfellow j. T. V. Thompson and others then organised a Curtt association. I am informed that its members Are sworn to my Rosy to turn out and fight when called on from head quarters to contribute Money to carry out the objects of this association to share equally the damages that May to Crue from the overt acts of any of its Mem Bers and to carry these Points even at the Price of disunion. They Are bound not to divulge the names of members. Thus their clans can act in concert everywhere at once and Lead the uninitiated to suppose that it is the spontaneous uprising of the whole people when Thoy number Only a Corporal s guard. When a Man is proscribed they act in concert to destroy his business and Char Acter and the poor Man is ruined without knowing the cause. All Northern my Are prescribed and ruined in their busier a and character or driven out of the country who do not subscribe to their most Ultra doctrines. In this manner whole communities Are Over awed. One Man said to me in i Arkville " times Are worse Here Bow than Uliey were in France in the Days of Robespierre others said that this was the first time the were afraid to avow their real sentiments. To one knew when his business would be destroyed or he be ordered out of he coun try. In this Way citizens Aro paralysed and subdued. Emissaries have been through the South to organize these associations. One i Amy was sent into Texas last Winter endorsed and recommended by Twenty Thorto members of the Missouri legislature. From what 1 could learn his Mission proved a failure. 1 heard of but nine members in the Stato. 11. W w Cut of when last Beard from. Mcgeo of Jackson county was travelling in Arkansas on the same Mission. Lycurgus Shepherd of Platte county said to me a few Days Sinco " that he whole South was organised that they had decreed the destruction of every Benton press in the state and a portion of the whig presses that they could command any amount of men at a moment s warning Ana millions of Money that the destruction of the hotel at Kansas and presses at Law rence had been decreed that they had taken Cannon along to demolish them from the distance so As not to be blown up by the kegs of powder said to be und a the building they would not Stop until every free Oiler and abolitionist is driven out of Missouri and Kansas they were prepared for disunion or he was then just out of a secret mooting. These meet Ings Are generally held once a week or at the Call of the leaders. There is no doubt but some Good men Are induced to join this association and get involved in its meshes before they understand its objects. So by some overt act or by bloodshed or murder they Hope gradually to get the North and South to take sides and bring on civil War and disunion. The nomination of d. R Atchison fur the president is ominous. Public meetings Are called at All the prominent Points where b. F. Stringfellow and j. T. V. Thompson or other speakers Aro generally present to make i Eiting speeches and to lash to fury the passions of the \ multitude. Len Kev. Or. A re l tia pin to the Arm at fort leaven Worth left his poet and came Over Ioto Puite county and in a pub lie speech urged the citizens to extreme measure. Bike to hand " he scouted the idea of using honorable Means in this War. 11. Rich Sutler at fort Leavenworth waa read to mob the Man who did not Sanction extreme measures. " he that is not Tor us is against us a their motto there can be no Midile ground and they Are now Busy Dragoo Ning the whole Community into duty. Envy prejudice and Inie Resi seem mixed up and Foremost in everything. The spirit of Honor so highly lauded in the Days of Chiv Alyia discarded by Tii eee leaders selfish Nasi a desire to enjoy and a Propri the the labors of others without an equivalent false Hood and detraction Blind near of intellect and an infuriated passion that thirsts for bloodshed and All the horrors of civil War now govern that devoted Region. May the almighty god make Bare Bis Arm to save our country from ruin. The Day i left l a Lurille capt. Wallace was Busy notifying citizens to leave. I understand one lady who was teaching school was ordered to close Doliwa and be of. Some were going some talked of defending their Bomee but were threatened with thousands of armed men which this secret association could collect at the shortest no Tice. Or. Park says that Atchison control the press in that Section and he has every Tea j son to believe that the Money for the establishment of the Southern Democrat upon the ruins of the luminary was made up by contribution in the secret order. In re Gard to the position of the press or. Park says r. S. Kelley of the Stutler save Ngn received $700 at one time and expected $1300 More. Besides Atchison Geu for them the publication of the Laws of the United states. Government Pat must up pears to be at his disposal his Servile tools the examiner. Platte Argus squatter sorer-1 Nam and Jhn Atni it Raj Ere the recipients. But they Are ready the moment they Hare obtained All the patronage at the dial Oral of the president to turn against him. Even now muttering Are heard. Be will i watch Thunder the moment be disobeys Lem. The statement that or. Park had jump 1 a " a claim made by another Mas is re 1 muted by him. Be says " the fart is an 1 organised company have jumped the claim i bad made first. My Cabin has Besa boat by cordwood a been thrown into the a 1 Rioe to Fil of the streets and my life threat med if i oame or. Park also denies in Toto the charge f abolition it and tvs that a has Ever seen in boor of the institutions of Missouri my that slave property a Safe in Hia hands. He Baa Alao often charged with being an Igent of the a migrant Aid society which be denied. These Ata Temela which Are not Contra dieted Bat rather confirmed fully by the Swater sovereigns who bout of their deeds of violence show a state of sit sirs unprecedented in the history of our of entry. The men from the North who have moved to Ksn aaa with All their efforts to Settle there and engage in honest indo atry Are ruthlessly driven away from the ballot boxes by the Drunken Lawless supporters of the squatter sovereignty doctrine residing in the state of Missouri and driven torn the territory even at the sacrifice of All they possess their printing presses Are destroyed they Are not allowed to act speak or think for Thema Elvea nor Oan they have their children educated evea by female teachers 1 yet these brutes Are suffered to organize in secret societies and to carry on their relish despotic away Over the present settlers of Kanaka. No voice not a whip Ria by the administration in Washington so Anat these Acta of lawlessness Ana violence. The Strong Arm of the govern ment is not interposed to protect the citizens of that territory in their civil political or even Domestic lights. Let there be a Whis per of a fugitive slave in some Northern City and president Pierce will Rouse up from his sleepless Couch hurry off to the War department and order out the u. S. Troops o Aid in catching the poor negro who is accused of no crime and sending him into bondage but the news of the Lawless in Enra Iona of the Frienda of the Edminia Talion in Missouri against the rights liberties and property of peaceable and Well disposed citizens of Kansas reaches the president a ears and moves him not. W a should it Are not those Lawless vagabonds in Missouri carrying out the avowed purposes of the originators and supporters of the Nebraska scheme which a " the most prominent Mim a or the administration 1" letter from Kansas. Or. Grey whose family has kindly furnished us with the following letter loft Here last March. The letter will be read with interest by his numerous friends in this place who wish Well for the Prosperity of the emigrants of Freedom. Tofeka k. T. April 22d, 1853. I am by the Blessing of heaven still in Good health but cannot Tell How much i want to see you or even hear from you. I have written before but have received no letter from you As yet neither have any of us heard one word from Biddeford since we left. We arrived Safe at Kansas City after a Long and tedious week on the boat. Our passage was slow in the cars and still slow or up the Missouri River the water being extremely Low. The boats dragged on the Bottom and were frequently obliged to atop Back off the Sand bars and try for deeper water. This River winds its Way through an immense Forest with Small town scatter a is us Ilia in la i Iii Dilks. 1 tl0 Prairie lands Are Seldom seen from the boats As the Trees Are tall and Large with Many blurts coming Down to the water s Edge. We Lound it very cold until to reached Kansas City after leaving that place the i grass began to look Green but it is yet too dry for vegetation to flourish. We found every thing new in Kansas As we expected i but the country natural resources &c., Are j far Superior to Illinois or those of any of the mates i Ever visited and it is being peo pled fait by intelligent settlers a great part of them from new England. There ii a Lack of Timber on this aide of the River not so much of it As might by desirable Bui Stone and Coal abound and the land a Well watered. The Prairies now look quite i Given dry As it is although the grass grows rather slowly. The wild Plum is in Bloom there a a Small toe Here that very much resembles the Lilac in Bloom also. Black berries and crab apples Are not plenty Here. There Are gooseberries in abundance but they Are too far advanced to transplant this season. I Law strawberries in my Garden which i shall cultivate. We have to draw lots for our House lots in the City. I have one on Kansas Avenue about half Way Between the River and the Park it is larger than both lots i left at bid Deford. This lot is on the Beautiful level land Between the Bill and River. The other lot is of the Hill. You May think that a Hill on a Prairie a something out of the or Der of nature but it is not so in this coun try there Are Hills Roe a and valleys and some Timber. Two lots seventy five feet me one num tred Ana Kiriy Back Ara offered to those who with to Settle in the City on condition that they will build a Home on one of them the present season and on condition that there shall be no Pir Itou Lupion on to Premus a restriction which Soifua at i at the eat i might do Well to adopt. This place won the South Side of the Kan Sas River. There is a Small skirt of Timber on this Bank and on a Creek a Little to the East is a strip of old Oaks. On the opposite Bank of the Tiver is a heavy growth of Large old Trees such As White Oak Sycamore Black Walnut Elm Hickory Locust Sie. This is a Beautiful spot of Earth the Prairie High and rolling much More so than the Prairies of Illinois and far Superior to them. Topeka is a new place like All others in the territory. There Are but few buildings in the City but several new ones building. The City of Lawrence a also quite new. The buildings Are of rough material and rudely put together. The people came late in the fall and wore obliged to prepare or Winter As Well As they could in so Short a time. Their Church is built of Sod and there Ara other houses of the same. They Ara now putting up two Large two Story building of Wood and others of Stone. In shia place there a a Large Stone a in dog in Progress. There has been some arrange meats made to have a building erected the a Efell season one Story for the purpose of a Cholla and the other for Church services. A ton Jed Church the first Sabbath we peat Here a a Grove. The Rev. Or. Vent Worth from r. 1. Preached. The Rev. Tar. Burgess from Mas preached last Sab the.

Thara were two Good Leaden and sixteen member present Moat of team from Tea East with a sprinkling from Tea West. Nearly half of oar party became homesick and Bare gone Back Bat some were really sick and obliged to return. Some seemed to think they should find farms All fenced and bodies built ready for their reception every advantage Here that they had left be Hind and a Rich soil healthy climate and to Short All the luxuries of the West in Addi Tion to them and because it was not so but the West bad a few also As Well As other places they turned around and went Back Well Content i suppose to pick rocks and dig out stumps and raise their scanty crops from the Barren soil of Maine. A Man that comas to this country wit Bont Money Mast expect to meet with Many privations As Welt As elsewhere. Board is s3,00 per week and mechanics readily command $2,00 per Day. Messes. Whiting Irish and myself Are at work on a Mill Here. We intend to Buiu us each a House in the City this summer. The Ranu will be mostly of Black Walnut. Shall not attend to farming much this summer As tha land is not surveyed. Those who coma us Uno i Sivu my Wilt and it our of tired and Bare to pay a bigger Poe ror hit is said by people Are capable of judging. The season a far ahead of Maine. I picked off the sprout of a tree on the 20ib, that had grown More than five inches this Spring. We have had some quit warm Days. The country around this place for 8 or 10 Miles is All claimed by people who Hare come hero since last fall and who in tend to make farms Ami it appears that this will be a place of some importance per haps the capital of the slate when organized at least it is talked of As such now. But whether people come to this or any other place in the West they most not expect to find every thing just As they wish. But if they wih to find a soil Rich As a Garden the Garden of Eden for aught i know a healthy climate without the Long new England Winters in a part of Tho world where new England people Are fast settling in and bringing along her literary and religious privileges. To my Many friends who have asked for my opinion concerning the country i would say this is Superior to any place i Havo seen. Yours a. Samiel get. Who Rule of facts for the people of the free 8tatei. Many and Grievious Aro Tho complaints Mado by the South concerning what it is loaned to term the " aggressions of the loud and vehement has been its clamor for states rights and bitter has been its denunciations of the North for its unjust attempts to deprive the South of its rightful participation in the government of the nation. These complaint Hare of late years become so frequent and formidable that Many Are disposed to listed to and give them credence. It is therefore highly important thai the facts in relation to the alleged grievance a should be presented in order to show to what extent the North has a Gressed and what ground the South has for complaint. We therefore ask the earn est undivided attention of our readers to the following fact which have been Woolle tedi from authentic so curves with much labor care and which May be relied upon As pot Tive and Correct. The slave holding states of the Union Are fifteen in number they contain a Froe copulation of about six millions. The free states Are sixteen in number and contain a free population of a Little More than four teen millions. This gives the free states a majority in numbers Over me Nave state 01 about eight million. From this one unacquainted with the aggressive character of Thi institution of american slavery might infer that the North would fill at least tin equal number of Federal office and exercise equal Power in the administration of the government. Bui Auch is not the fact for notwithstanding the great inequality in Point of population the Alave Holder have Ever to adroitly managed a to secure themselves a Large majority of the Moat honorable and influential offices in the nation a the following will How from the organization of the government Down to the present Lime 1855, there have been selected Nineteen presidents of the United states. These presidents May be classified As follow from Tho slave states 13 number of years in of face 50 from the free slates to years in office 16 01 the thirteen from the slave state five have held the office for eight years each. Virginia alone a been represented in the presidential chair for forty years. By hold ing the presidency slavery controls lie cab inet the diplomacy the army and the Navy of the nation. The Power that control the presidency rules the country. Let it be remembered that of the six presidents from the North one Only served one month and two Van Buren and Pierce were " Northern men with Southern principles the True and steadfast Friend of slavery. None of the Aix Northern Peai dents have been allowed to Terve More than one term. Tie tics Umesi dict. The president exercise much of Bis Power by Tori with the Content of the sen ate. The vice president of the United state u president of the Senate and a Auch he has the casting vote on All questions coming before that body. The atari of is therefore one of considerable importance and eagerly sought by Tho would be rulers of the land and this prize has also been won by the South. For the last Twenty fire years with one exception the vice presi Dent la been a . From Tho adoption of the Constitution up to june 1842, there were 76 elections in the Senate for president pro tem. Of these there were from Tho slave states co from the Freo states 16 the greater part of the 16 were in the earlier Yoars of the government. Or. South Ard was elected in 1842. Previous to that Thorn had been no Northern men elected for Truatt tears so careful were the slave Holder to watch their interests by securing the casting vote in the Senate the stats department. The office of Secretary of state is perhaps second to none other in importance in the Cabinet of the president. As it is the duty of this officer to direct our correspondence with foreign courts instinct our foreign ministers negotiate treaties and perform Many j other important duties his station is Sewood in importance Only to that of the presidency itself. Since the organisation of the government in 1789 Down to the present there Hare been appointed Nineteen secretaries of state. Of there there were from the slave states 13 years in office 40 from the free state 6 Yean in office 23 Here again we see that the slaveholder Lave secured the lion s share. They have and More than twice the number of men in i office that the North Hae had and they Lave held the office neatly twice a Long. Surely Thia does not look Mach like Aggree too. Wai department this department is Alio under the control i f f slavery. In 1s46, it was shown that of to ninety eight officer a this department i Vert from a South. Although the free states hate generally Irish my the exam to an j soldiers. The Raea ado the fighting and end ure the hard knocks Litrero Baa taken care to Amish the officer. Hio of 1054 naval officer new England Fiu Only 172. Of the 68 commander new England Baa Only 11 of the 328 lieutenant the Baa Only 59 and of the 562 midship Raen he Baa but 8. And yet new eng land Owna nearly one half the entire hip p no of the country. Of All the officer in Ike Navy in 1844, whether in service or mailing order Pennsylvania with a free population More than double that of Virginia bad but 177, while Virginia had 224. Of the 191 naval appointment made under or. Upshur in 1842 the free state had Only 73, while the slave state bad 117. Here Alao slavery has a powerful ally court. The supreme court of the United states a the court of Bighead Appeal in the nation. Ila decisions in All cases coming before it Are final. It Power extends to All Case in Law and equity arising under Ibe Constitution and Law of the United states. It there fore Wield a mighty influence Over the everment of the country. Thia court by come o e of the bulwarks of slavery. It a to arranged that the " Peculiar institution Baa nothing to fear but everything to Hope from its administration. The following table exhibit the number of circuits the state comprising the mine i the free population of each circuit and the names or the judges both in the free and slave state. Free states. 1st circuit. Curtis Mcdoe. Line to new Hampshire Massachusetts Rhode Island 2d circuit. States. Vermont connect icat new York. 3d circuit. States. New Jersey Pennsylvania. 7th circuit.

Mississippi Arkansas j total free population 6,219,935. Number of judges 5. From the above it will be seen the free Stales although containing a population of nearly 14.000,000 have Only four judges while the slave state with a population of but Little More than 6,000,000 have were the circuits formed with the View of Doine to in two Section and placing them on an Equality the North would have six judges Rod the South but three. Such is the glaring injustice of that system which dictates Tho government of the nation. Free population 1,531,041. Camprell judge. Free population 701,732. Wank judge. Free population 1,388,517. Catron judge. Free population 2,139,200. Daniel judge. Free population 459,445 extended comments on the foregoing fact Are hardly necessary. They speak but too plainly for themselves and exhibit but too cd arty to Utler degradation and base subservience of the North. Suffice it to say that the 250,000 slaveholders of the South Rule the 20,000,000 of intelligent freemen who boast n Home in this Laud of Liberty and equal they hold the majority of offices of Trust and Honor. Con Gress and the judiciary Are under their control and Over the Federal executive they hold unlimited Sway. Who can wonder then that the institution of american slavery with Congress Ever legislating for its Protection and Extension nourished and cherished by the Federal executive and looked upon with Peculiar favor by the highest courts who can wonder we ask that slav Ery has with these advantages grown to its present enormous strength and attained that powerful and influential position which it now occupies in the counsels of the nation. We think we May safely affirm that there a not a single Branch of the govern ment which is not under the control of the slave Power. For the last fifty years the history of slav Ery has been one of continued aggression and Conquest and never were Ita Agres Sions More bold extensive and alarming than at the present Day. During the past year for the purpose of extending its Domin Ion it has been guilty of one of the most perfidious arid disgraceful transactions that Ever blackened a Page a the history of our nation. And it is even now plotting for grander and Richer conquests. Cuba St. Domingo Mexico and Central America Are now the objects of their desires. With these additions to its present strength slav Ery would be omnipotent or. To use the Lan Guage of a late number of the soul turn Standard in speaking of this subject it could not Only preserve Domestic servitude but would defy the Power of the what then we ask in View of these things it the Dull of american citizens 1 should Thev Ait Down in apathy and indifference without making at least one Noble Effort to Rescue the country from the control of Tbone slave holding pirates who now Dishonour our Halls of legislation pollute our courts of Justice and bring disgrace upon the Amer ican name we think not. Let the free voters of the North unite at one in this holy cause and with onion and Energy Thoy May succeed and do a great work Lor themselves and their country by purifying the govern ment from the contamination of the slave Power and bringing it Back to the original policy of its founders. A should be will ing to join in to laudable a work. Let All old parly feuds and jealousies be Laid aside and All unite in one common cause and with one common object the demolition of the Alave Power and the punishment of Doug faces and demagogues. This is the Only Way in which we can Hope to Check the alarming aggressions of slavery and such is the coarse we believe he american people should and will Pur sue and with Unity and Energy Success will Brown their Effort. Citi seas do your duty 0 the provision of our new Law which relates to the imprisonment of drunkards ill they will disclose who cold them the liquor works Well.
