Quite a number of oui patrons have responded to our Call and not Only settled for Tho past but have also paid something in Advance.

We Are much obliged to our friends everywhere for the sympathy they have expressed for our mis Fortune and for any kindly a torts they have made and Are making in the behalf of la paper. A Licu practical Oak. The method by which the free state legislature of Kan a rid that territory of the infamous Lecompte and Cato it one of the richest bits of legislative action in the history of the country. The work was accomplished by a Bill redistricting the territory for judicial p Urpo eee. By this Bill the territory is divided into three districts the tint of which lies weat of the sixth principal Meridian and North of the fourth Standard parallel the second lies West of the Sama Meridian and South of the same parallel and the third District live East of the sixth Meridian. Lecompte is Assai Gnad the first District Cato the see on d and Williams the third. The third District embraces All and More than fell the settled and Civ fixed portions of the territory while the districts a aligned to Lecompte and Cato Aro inhabited by indians and add beasts the people to whom Lecompte will in future administer Justice will be the cheyennes Pawnee i. and Divra tribes of the famous Dacota or act Throat family whilst the jurisdiction of Cato will Rui Brace i tags snakes loot diggers Apache comanches the. do to the severity of this joke the Jad Gea Are required to u re to ird Theu und 9 Moid four terms of court cock your mourn m must of to stir rup Tiitu Yooy Ruptic a Sorn atone us they Are Leibu to a of of Hwd Doii Art and import torment or out year pm upon in court of tie third Dot re or Uny to my Prokof Komi.

Or the Texas legislature have appropriated the sum of ,000 to pay the expense of seven delegates to a Southern convention u called upon the Kansas question. Our City election. The Republican of were Defeated on monday in the election for Munici pal officer their opponent electing Cyrus Gordon mayor by 43 Majori in poll of 1215 vote and carrying fire of tha Eren aldermen and a majority of the common councilmen.

Ever Ince the re publican party he been organised it he bad to contend with and struggle against the foreign tote the rum drinking end rum Tell ing interest and the influence of the corporate wealth of two of the corporation Here. Under these combined influence added to Home paralysing destructive of their own in see eral wards which somewhat reduced their vote the republicans have gone temporarily to the Wall and we Are called on to chronicle a Victory won by foreigners Over natives rum Sellers and their rum sympathiser Over Temperance men and Lecompton democrats Over the real friends of popular sovereignty. Authorise our contemporaries of the East Ern argue Lio ton l Ost Aud other i Compton papers in the state and elsewhere to claim our Deleat a a Victory for Lecompton for they May rest assured that although there May be now and then a Douglass Democrat who voted against the republicans the Irish men and the rum Sellers and their sympathising friends who gave the bulk of the vote Are dead sure for Lecompton or any other Devi try the leaders of the Southern democracy May Hatch up for them to Swallow. We make this admission the More cheerfully because we notice by the papera that the municipal elections generally have gone for the Republican by increased majorities and it would be hard indeed to take away from the Lecompt onite Here the Little Comfort they May take a thinking Over the Victory they have achieved.
