SATURDAY, FEBRUARY-1 4. 1 863. BLIND TO 31. "Only a germ in a withered flower ' I That the rain will bring out sometime." ! i i Sometime in1 tie year 1850 a tobacco planter in Southern Georgia Perry H. Oli ver by name bought a likely negro wo man, with some other field hands. She was stout, tough-muscled, willing, promis ed to be a remunerative servant; her baby, however, a boy a few months old, was only thrown in as a make-weight to the bargain, or, rather, because Mr. Oliver would not content to separate mother and cfcild. Char .ity only could have induced him to take the picamnny,' in fact,' for he was but alcmp of black flesh, born blind, and with the vacant grin of idiocy, they thought, already stamp ed on hi face. ' 1 -' Mr. Oliver did his duty well to the boy, being an observant and thoroughly-kind master.. The plantation was large, heart some,' faced the sun, swarmed with little black urchins, with plenty to eat and noth ing to do. All that Tom required, as he fattened out o...

EMPORIA, KANSAS. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21. 1863. The Democratic paper at Atchison the Standard has been remored to Missouri. There ia a disease called Loyalty, in Kansas, which ia very fatal to traitorous aheeta. Carle Home was hung at Leavenworth, on the 13th inst., for the murder of Philip Freund. This is the first case of hanging, by law, in the State. He protested, on the gallows, his innocence. The Legislature has passed a set of reso lutions, condemning Mr. Conway for his late speech in Congress, and requesting him to resign. If the speech is such as it has been reported to be, the resolutions are per haps well enough. We have not seen it. On the night of the 13th a rousing Union meeting was held at Leavenworth, being gotten up to counteract the influence of the late rebel demonstration in that city, which was led off by the Inquirer, and which re sulted in the destruction of that office. Strong resolutions were adopted, andepeech ea were made by Gen. Blunt, Col. Jennieon and oth...

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1863. At 11 o'clock last night, when we went to press, the Lawrence mail had not arrived. Consequent, we are without our usual late news items. See advertisement of "Little Giant Sew ing Machine." - -- i Butter is a very scarce article, in this community; and a good article sells. Daniel Holsinger, of Pike township, aed bout thirty-five years, died a few days ago, of lung fever.' We were joking about Mickel, last week. He is one of the "most honestest fellers" we know of. The mud is very deep and very sticky. We hope that, before another winter, sets in, some steps will be taken to improve our street-crossings. What an unfortunate circumstance, that Emporia was not named after some rich man! Lawrence gets the 815,000 which she offered for the University, from Amos Lawrence, of Boston. Cotton Seed.

At the last meeting of the State Agricul tural Society, Feb. 6th, the subjects of flax, hemp, and sorghum culture were consid ered: S. J. Snyder, of Atchison county, said he would sow flax about the middle of April, using one to one and a half bushels of seed to the acre. His has done well. Dr. N. C. Clark, of Doniphan, raised flax on a small scale. Used Royal seed, from France. He thinks flax will do well, gen erally, iu the State. Mr. Loy, of Lyon, says his father ha3 raised flax for a number of years success fully. Thinks it cannot fail to do well. He bows as late as the 1st of May, using about the same quantity of seed as for wheat. S. J. Snyder says he sows, of hemp, two and one-fourth bushels of seed to the acre. He raises it yearly, as do many of hi3 neigh bors, with success producing an average of 1,000 lbs. to the acre. A. Ellis said he had raised sorghum for several years in...

Wfa Wmwxm ? n EMPOBIA, KANSAS. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1863. We may expect interesting news from Vicksburgh, next week. The latest news from the Eleven th is that they are encamped 30 miles south of Spring field, and are likely to be there some time. Gold is still going up, up, up. When it 'will stop there is no telling. Th3 last quo tation in New York is 64; demand notes 64. In Leavenworth gold was selling on the 25th for 55; demand notes 53; silver 40. Wyandott got heaten, for the Lunatic Asylum, by Osawatomie. While we think that Wyandott needed the institution very much, Osawatomie needed it more. It is a good place for it. It will get plenty of local patronage. We suggest to the present Legislature, before they adjourn, that something thould be done to place Lawrence on a "war foot ing." If the State should ever be invaded, by rebel gunboats coming up the Kaw, a3 they may do at some lime in the future, if the water gets high enough, that city is in a very exposed condition. Any ...

CO SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 23. 18G3. FARMERS' DEPARTMENT. Culture and Manufacture of Tobacco. Last week we published an article upon tobacco raising, taken from a Western paper. The following is from the pen of John C. Roberts, of Tarriffvjlle, Connecticut, giving the mode of cultivating and manufacturing in that State: Preparation f the Ssed Bed. We have generally prepared the seed bed in the fall, by heavy manuring, plowing in deep, and leaving the bed in a rough state uutil the following spring. As eoon as the frost is out of the ground, epade the bed over, for the purpose of bringing the manure up to the surface and thoroughly mixing the soil, at the same time clearing out all roots of weeds and grass. After leveling the bed we make the soil as compact as possible, either by rolling with a heavy roller or stamping with the feet. We then rake the surface lightly with a fine-tooth garden rake, and sow the seed, raking lightly to cover it, and then roll or tramp it bgain. The 6eed is 60...

The time has arrived when the people of Kansas must decide whether they will live as a law-abiding people, with their rights and duties exactly ascertained and plainly defined, or whether they prefer that their persons and property shall be at the mercy of mobs, thieves, and cut-throats. We see by the Southern Kansas Herald that Henry Seaman, claiming to be a Cap tain in the Fifth Kansas, broke open the jail at Paola recently and released one priso ner charged with murder, and two others charged with different crimes.
