Serious Affray la Richardson Co.
We lea'rn that a very serious shooting
affray took place at Fnll City, in Rich
ardson county, on Monday last. It grew
out cf their County Seat dilliculties; in
regard to which a very bitter feeling has
existed between diCerect r arties and sec
tions in the county for a year or two past.
They have recently hatl another vote on
the question, Falls City receiving the
highest number of votes, and Rulo the
next. - The difficulty referred to was be-
fpwprn ibpvp two tmvns and in rrard to

The result was killing instantly of one
tee cf five to investigate whether the
.President cf the United States or any
'ether officer of the Government has by
'.money, patronage, or any other improper
means sought to influence the passage of
any law, appertaining to the rights of any
"State or Territory, &c. This action is un-
derstood to have particular reference to
the Knnsas-Leccmpton Constitution, and
the President' course thereon. The Pres
ident assumes a position a la "Soft delu

that by virtue of his being a co-ordinate
branch of the Government. Congress has
no right to call in question his acts !

by a public officer in this country, it is

Editorial Excursion to Washington
We acknowledge the receipt of a 'com
plimentary ticket;' from the Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad Company, in which
some forty or fifty other Railroad Com
panies and Steamboat lines throughout
the country unite, to join in a general edi
torial excursion on a "visit to the Capi
tol of the Union and the Home and Tomb
of . Washington, (as well as the City
of Baltimore,) during the present session
of Congress." It is proposed to assern
at Wheeling on the 4th of Slay next, at
which place a special train will be fur
nished, leaving that city for Washington
and Baltimore. The company desire
the excursionists to pass over the "west
ern portion of the Baltimore and Ohio
road by daylight in crder that they may
more fully realize the grandure of the
country, through which it runs, as well as
the success with which extraordinary nat
ural obstacles have been overcome in
building this solid highway through the
passes of the Alleghanies." The excur
sion cannot fail to be an agreeable and
Iong-to-be-remembered affair. We will
"join that expedition."

Here are the first and second resolu

or the other should have been left out.
As the resolutions stand the Slissouri
Democracy take both sides of the Popular
Sovereignty question. -
Resolved, That the principles enuncia
ted in the Cincinnati platform which ce
mented the patriotism of the nation in a
great national party in 1S56, emenating
as. they do from the Constitution of the
United States, cannot be safely ignored
by any party desiring or deserring coun
tenance or support m the various States
of our confederacy.
2. That the Democratic party of Slis
souri hold these cardinal principles on the
subject of slavery in the Territories: 1st,
That Congress has no power to abolish
slavery in the Territories ; 2d, That the
Territorial Legislature has no power to
abolish slavery in any Territory, nor io
prohibit the introduction of slaves there
in, nor any power to exclude slavery
therefrom by unfriendly legislation, nor
any power to impair or destroy the right
of property in slaves, by any legislation

The appointment of Sir. English, grand

The "bill to suppress Poligatny in Utah,"
which recently passed the House of Rep
resentatives, . is applicable everywhere,
except in the District of Columbia.
Was the District of Columbia reserved
for the express benefit of members cf
Congress ? Here is an extract from the
"That if any person or persons, being
married, shall, during the life of the for
mer husband or wife, marry another per
son cr persons, in any territory of the
United States, or other place, except in
ihe District of Columbia, over which the
United States possess exclusive jurisdic
tion, or if the marriage with such other
person take place elsewhere, shall there
after'live or cohabit with such other per
son, in such Territory, or other place
over which the United States possesses
exclusive jurisdiction, the former hus
band or wife being alive, he she, or they
so offending, shall, on conviction there
of, pay a fine not exceeding five hundred
dollars, and be imprisoned not less than
two years nor more than five years."
Will Alabama Tote In Convention?
The Slontgomery ,ldveriiser, the fire
eater's organ, thinks the delegates will
vote for Jo Lane instead of Jeff Davis.
The Advertiser forgets that the delegates
are to withdraw if the platform does not
declare slavery to exist by the Constitu
tion, as much in the Territories as in
South Carolina and Georgia, and that the
platform will be the first made contain
ing no slave code, consequently the vote
for a candidate will be taken after the
slave code delegates have retired if they
obey their instructions.-pi7xcA ange.
Douglas In NewJersej.
The New York Leader, in speaking of
the New Jersey delegation to Charleston,
"Of the fourteen delegates to the Con
vention, there is but one to-wit. John
Huyler who is opposed to Judge Doug
las. Of the remainder, eight are avow
edly in favor of the Little Giant; and
the other five are friendly to the same
candidate, though not so publicly commit
ted in his favor."
We see a company of Telegraph construc
tors are about putting up a line westward
from the Slissouri river, via Ft. Kearny.
The point at which they now propose
leaving the Slissouri river, is Leaven
worth, or opposit St. Joseph. The com
pany, if they consult their cwn interests,
will certainly come higher up the river
before starting West. From either of
the points mentioned, to Ft. Fearny there
are no intermediate 'points of note to
serve, or from which they can secure aid.
If they follow up the Slissouri river, say
ns high as Omaha, they are much near
er Ft. Kearnjs than when at Leaven
worth or St. Joseph-, and besides pass
through some ten or twelve poin's abng
the river, at all of which it would pay to
establish offices, and from which materi
al aid could be derived. Look before
you leap, gentlemen.

of the country, and the shout would ev

and cities, until his elebtion, already a
matter of no dispute, were recorded as
an event of history. v
This is no idle talk. Nothing could be
more manifest to an observer of what is
going on throughout the Union, than the
tact that the selection -of Douglas, as a
candidate for the Presidency by the Na
tional Democratic Convention, would cast
utter dismay vupon the ranks of the com
bined opposition. Their leaders, if they
do hot acknowledge this in a public way,
confess it. unmistakably .in their secret
movements and machinations. In the
defeat of Douglas at Charleston lies their
proi-pect of taking the government from
the Democratic party a prospect without
that dim enough. St. L. Republican.
Georgia Delegates to Charleston.
The Rome; (Ga.) Courant, an oppo
position paper, says:
"It will not at all surprise us to see
the Georgia delegates vote for Squatter
Sovereignty at the Charleston Conven
tion. Cobb's chances have vanished into
thin air. Douglas looms up into fearful
reality. The December Convention took
a bold and fearless stand. The Slarch
convention have backed down."
Douglas and Charleston.
Only a short time will elapse before
tne nomination ot the .Democratic party
for President will be made at Charles
ton. To that quarter, therefore, are all
eyes turning, and the interest felt in the
event is as lively and eager as it is uni
versal. -Viewing the whole country from
Maine to California, there is no mistak
ing the preferences of the people of the
great mass of the citizens of the nation
as to who should be the nominee.
That preference is unequivocally for Sen
ator Douglas. Around his name cluster
the surest and most positive hopes of suc
cess for the Democratic party a success
which shajl not only carry a popular
statesman to the position where his great
abilities can best be exerted for the good
management and prosperity of the Re
public, but which shall be a permanent
crushing overthrow of the political here
sies sought to be introduced into the gov
ernment. The evils to result from a
Black Republicaiadwinisrtation nave not
probably been exaggerated. These evils,
embracing in their long category a sense
of humiliation and wounded pride on the
part of the South, may be effectually
averted by the nomination of Douglas.
If the National Convention is influenc
ed by a desire to respect the wishes of a
majority of the people if they are actu
ated by a patriotic purpose to ignore mere
abstractions and allow the battle of next
November to be fought on practical is
sues' they will hesitate long before cen
tering their choice upon any other than
the distinguished favorite mentioned.
They will reflect that in. the Central and
Northwestern States there is an enthusi
asm attaching to the name of Senator
Douglas by which the Democratic party
of those sections hope to slay and annihi
late. the .many-headed -monster ..which
teaches treason sedition and disuniun. In
the North and. West there i$ a gallant ar
my of sterling Democrats, who have re
sisted and advanced upon the common en
emy again and again with no less cour
age than firmness because of the certain
ty of defeat. And now, that the pros
pect is so animating of being able to
drive back the hosts cf .Abolitionism and
their allies, and reap the reward of stead
fast faith ' and valor, it woidd be almost
cruel to blart these cheering hopes.
Slissouri's choice is Douglas. From
all parts of the State we hear that the
people are for him. A majority of the
people are for him. A majority of the
delegates lately appointed at .'Jefferson
City, as stated yesterday, prefer him to
any other man, and will notbe. slow in
showing that preference. And in the
event of his nomination, he will sweep
the State like a tornado. r ' ;
The Democratic party may triumph in
the coming . contest with any. candidate
who way be their standard-bearer; but
with Douglas victory is inevitable. His
nomination at Charleston would bo h?il-
Wqrds Fitly Spoken.
We fully endorse every word and sen
timent of the following, from the Toledo
Times and Herald: ' '
The little knots of Democrats from the
North, almost exclusively office holders,
who are opposed to the nomination of
Douglass, base their hopes that he will
not be selected a3 the candidate, upon a
pretended belief that the South will not
accede to the nomination. If it .were
true, as these men allege, that a portion
of the Southern States are combiuud to
defeat the nomination of Douglas upon
the ground that he is not a sound Demo
crat, would such an impudent, insulting,
dictatorial position, cn the part of a mi
nority, compel the friends of Douglas,
who are in the majority, to force his nom
ination by a majority vote, if two-thirds
could not be obtained ? Do the opponents
of Douglas suppose they can brow-beat
and bully his friends into submission to the
will and dictation of a minority? Self
respect would force a separation from
those with whom we could not act upon
terms of perfect equality. Whenever
we are required to concede to Southern
Democrats a superiority to agree that
they have any more right to dictate the
policy or control the action of the party,
than the Northern Democrats have; when
we are obliged to admit their right to set
up their opinions as a standardly which
to test the soundness of Northern Demo
crats; when all these humiliating conces
sions are demanded, and the Democratic
organization cannot be preserved without
making them, dissolution will be inevi
table. There may b-- a few men at tha South
sil y, weak, or inconsiderate enough to
ocpupy such a' position ; but the great
body of Democrats of the Southern
States know that they cannot meet their
brethern from the North on any other
than terms of perfect equality, and we
Ldo believe they have no desire to meet
them on any other terms.
Delegates from the North or the South,
who go to Charleston with a determina
tion to have their own way, whether in
the majority or the minority, will find,
when they attempt coercion, that they
have greatly over-rated their own impor
tance, and will be compelled to submit to
the will of the majority, or walk out.
Concessions, requiring nd " surrender of
principle, will be 'made for ihe sake cf
harmony ; but, when any set of men im
periously demand a surrender of opinion
on the part of a majority of the Conven
tion, as a condition precedent to their co
opeiation in sustaining the candidate, they
will find themselves among their peers
whom they cannot intimidate by demands
The reliance cf those who depend on
the impudence and tenacity of a minori
ty, is, in our opinion, too feeble to give
them reasonable hope of success, and
they have nothing else upon which to
base their opinion that Douglas will not
be nominated. Their reliance is upon
frightening the great majority of the dem
ocratic party with their threat: to bolt if
Douglas is nominated. They cannot suc
ceed. The North is for Douglas the
sentiment of the whole country is for
him and the safe and true men of the
party, North and South, see the necessi
ty of yielding to the popular wishv
The Washington correspondent of the
Buffalo Commercial Advertiser, (Ameri
can,) presents the following views in a
letter of the 2d inst.:
"The chances of the the nomination of
Judge Douglas seem, from this stand
point to be decidedly increasing. Slany
delegates to the Charleston Convention
have already been here, and they pretty
clearly indicate which way the wiud pol
icy is blowing. Stephen A. Douglas is
the only Democrat who can be elected
president in 1S60.. and the Democrats of
the country ought to know it.
"The nomination of Sir. Seward at the !
Chicago Convention is pretty certain..
"The National Union men, in their
National Convention at Baltimore, on the
6th of Slay, next, may nominate John
SIcLean of Ohio, for President, and John
Bell, of Tennessee, f jr Vice President.
Such a ticket would make the Seward Re
publicans quake amazingly. Some, how
ever, suggest John SI. Botts for Presi
dent, and Thomas Corwin for Vive-Pres
Carson Valley 3Iines.
The first Pony Express from Califor
nia, reached St. Joseph, SIo., on the 16ih.
From the Gazette, of that, date, we clip
the following in regard to the Carson Val
ley Gold and Silver Slines. It is under
date "Car-on City. U. T. April 4, 1560:
"The excitement in regard to the sil
ver and gold mines of this country is un
abated. Hundreds are pouring in from
all parts of California. : Scarcely a com
pany who are prospecting have failed in
striking rich oar where thy anticipated
to find iL ; The mineral regie n extends
for a hundred miles in every direction,
and rich discoveries have been made one
hundred miles up the Humboldt. The
Spanish claims, situated where the mines
were first opened, are yielding 620,000
per day. Ground is changing hands at
from S20, to SI ,000 per foot. The- Sle-na-ake
and Walker river country is rich
in miueral, and hundreds are prospecting
that region, generally with good success.
Ore is now- being shipped to San Fran
cisco, for smelting, from five different
companies, and other companies are ma
king arrangement? to ship thir oar a
soon as animals can be procured. The
ore sent yields from $2,000 to S5,0u0
per ton. Discoveries of rich gold-bearing
quartz, are made every day.' Sla
chinery of every description is on its way
here for the purpose of crushing and
smelting, etc. Town property in differ
ent localities ranges gigh. Slany fire
proof buildings are under construction.
The population is increasing very fast;
it is thought that in two months the pop
ulation will be 5,000. Society is very
bad. No law for the collection of debts
cr the punishment of criminals. Slur
ders and fights are of daily occurrence.
Freight from California .is very high,
26 to 30 cents per pound. Flour is now
selling at $40 per 100 pounds. Lumber
is 300 per 1000 feet at some places in
the mines. Other things are selling in
proportion. Weather stormy to-day, hea
vy fall of snow in the mountains.
Look to jour Liquors-
Dr. Cox, the celebrated liquor inspec
tor for Ohio, has lectured at the Cooper
Institution in New York. He said he
had been liquor inspector "for Hamilton
county, Ohio, for five years, and that du
ring that time, he had analyzed 2,679
samples uf every possible variety cf
liquors, including wines and malt liquors.
Out of this number he only found three
hundred and fifty samples that were real
ly pure ; 250 were merely mixed liquors,
with alcohol, &c, and in the balance
were found sulphuric acid, red pepper,
stramonium, strychnine, and almost ev
ery variety of poison. In Philadelphia,
he analyzed samples from some thirty
different stores of wines, ales and bran
dies. In one case of lager bier, he found
sulphuric acid, albumen, sulphate of iron,
salt and water, "but not a solitary per
tentage of malt, or the flavor of hops.
In the city he did not find a drop of pure
brandy. Imitations were made there,
which would deceive the best connoiseurs,
and yet so pernicious, that a pint of it
would eat through the coats of the sto
mach and destroy a map, and this appear
ed on post mortem examinations. A gen
tleman offered him 82,500 if he found a
drop that was not pure braudy in a bottle
he presented to him, S30.000 worth of
which he had in bond. He agreed to
analyze it, and the merchant offer d five
hundred dollars. He analyzed it, and
did not find a drop of brandy, but all
whisky, rot-gut, nitric ether, pepper, &c,
and yet it was marked "Pure Cognac
Braudy." He put a piece of iron into
some of it, and the result was, it was beau
tiful, ink. and the iron was corroded.
From three to four ounces of sulphuric
acid to a quart of whisky, will give it a
rich, luscious and mellow fjavor, and, in
deed, ten ounces of the same acid put to
a little quick lime, and that put into a
barrel of whisky would make it quite
mellow and luscious.

conflicting rumors in regard to the action
