Biddeford Union and Eastern Journal (Newspaper) - March 12, 1858, Biddeford, MaineThe Union and journal Friday morning u 12, 1838. Editorial corp Oddeice. Ai Ovesta much 8, 1888. I do not learn on my return her to Day that Many matter of much general interest have been settled by either Branch a Ince the Day i waa to summarily summoned Home a week ago. The Bill casting the coat in Cnm-1 Inal cases on tie counties passed by the a Louie and amended in the Senate at the suggestion of or. Goddard who seems to Hae a vivid remembrance of the expense in the Knight Case so As to except the Costa in j capital cases hangs by teen the Senate and the House on a disagreeing vote of the two branches on this amendment. I am told that a Large amount of local and private business As disposed of last week and that the track is getting cleared for som of the More important and icon cd questions the Senate by a vote of 16 to 4, to a settled the election ease in that Branch in. Favor of Mcclusky the sitting member. Senator Jones of our county made what is earn to have been an extremely creditable Speed against the right of or. Mcclusky. Tin speech is published in this morning a age and i am told by one who Haa read it but who did not take the same View of th4 question that or. Jones did that the Points Art presented with much Clear need Aud or. Mcclusky a right to the seat was contested on the ground that he was not eligible under the Constitution in consequence of his our City election. The republicans of Biddeford were detested of monday in the election for municipal officers their opponents electing Cyrus Jordon mayor by 43 Majori in a poll of 1213 votes and carrying five of the seven aldermen and a majority of the common councilman. Their defeat was not Alto Gath or unanticipated by Many Good Republican who have been quiet observers of the in or Public Triumph. A a Hampt Hirt new Hampshire election has resulted in a sweeping Republican Victory. A Republican governor by More than five thousand majority an unanimous Republican Council a Senate three fourths Republican and a House Republican by More than two to one. This a certainly enough to Garufy the Moat ardent hater of the Lecompton swindle. Pc Maraur hailed a majority last year waa 2,340. Lube i Tiuan pcs which have been operating against this year is a presume Conlu them for several years. Ever since the Republican party Haa been organised it Haa had to contend with and struggle against the foreign vote the rum drinking and rum sailing interest and the influence of the corporate wealth of two of the corporations Here. Under these combined influences added to some paralysing destructive of their own in several wards which somewhat reduced their vote the republicans have gone temporarily to the w All and we Are called on to chronicle a Victory won by foreigners Over natives run Sellers and their rum sympathisers Over Temperance men Aud Lecompton democrats Over the real friends of popular Over eighty. Vau Thorine our contemporaries of the Eastern Argus Boston Fost Aud other i Compton papers in the state and elsewhere to claim our Deleat As a Victory for Lecompton for they May rest assured that although there May he now and then a Douglaas Democrat who voted Aga aet the Republican the irishmen and the rum Sellert and their sympathising friends who gave the bulk of the Vultee Are dead Eure for Lecompton or any other Devi try the leaders of the Southern democracy May Hatch up for them to Swallow. Foyer go birth. And not having be a naturalised we thu la a a of the More cheerfully became we notice by the papers that the the time required by the Constitution to make him eligible. The committee gave him the heat on the ground that he w As a resident with disputed territory and by the treaty of Washington the question of territory was settled so As to bring him into the United states he therefore became entitled to All the rights and privileges of native born Cit Ixena. A a Down East Quot a Here in great strength waiting anxiously for the legislature to Takt some sign of a willingness to do something to open up the Aroostook county for settlement by submitting a proposition for changing that Constitution so a to enable the state to loan its credit for the purpose of building a Railroad from Bangor to the Interior of Aroostook county. Bangor elected a Republican mayor Yeater Day by Over 300 majority. Belfast by some 300 majority and Augusta and Bath by several hundreds and Republican City governments were elected in All thee cities. L. O. C. 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. Now having made this admission and authorised our democratic co temporaries to make the most of the Lecompton Victory Here no matter if it waa achieved by virtue of the Dodge of calling All those to act together who were a a opposed to the present City administration Quot to give the votes is or some weeks will probably elapse before a get fairly settled again under such an arrangement for the continuance of the us Ion and journal As will enable us to give it so much attention As it Haa heretofore received. When the office waa destroyed we Wen at Augusta filling an engagement for Legisla Tive reporting with the proprietors of the journal and to Complete that engagement it will be necessary for us to go to Auguste again and remain there until the adjournment of the legislature. We shall strive to Biak it the paper As valuable As we can but undo the circumstances our subscribers will hard expect of us so much for a few weeks a the would were the paper published under Les embarrassing circumstance. We find the matter of supplying the loss of our mail lists extremely perplexing and indeed obstacle of a discouraging nature growing out of Thi Losa of our books and accounts meets us at every turn. On our return from Augusta we expect to take Steps to obtain Nia Teal for a new office and shall need every assistance which those who owe us Cau give to enable to carry out plans .01 the future Publica-1 lion of the paper advantageously. May we. Not repeat the request made by us in our Sheet giving the details of our loss and a the matter still More earnestly on the attention of those who axe indebted to us for payment of our due. Quite a number of our patrons have responded to our Call and not Only settled for to past but have also paid something in Advance. Should All do so it would serve materially to lighten the Burden which we Are obliged to carry. We have also received some new names to our list and understand that measures have been to Ken in torn places in the county among our subscribers for its Extension. We Are much obliged to our friends everywhere for the sympathy they have expressed for our misfortune and for any kindly a torts they Hare made and a making in the behalf of the i pro _ a Lucu practical joke. The method by which the free state legislature of Kansas rid that territory of the infamous a compte and Catoia one of the richest bits of legislative action in the history of the the work was accomplished by a Bill redistricting the territory for judicial Purpo Ece. By this Bill the territory a divided into three districts the first of which lies West of the sixth principal Meridian Aud North of the fourth Standard parallel the so could lies West of the same Meridian and South of the same parallel and lha third District lies cast of the sixth Meridian. Lecompte a assigned the first District a Cato tha second and William the third. The third District embraces All and More than my the settled and civilised portions of the territory while the District assigned to Lecompte and Cato Aro inhabited by indians and wild beasts the people to whom Lecompte will in future administer Justice will be the cheyennes l a Knees.
