TITE PERRYSBURG JOURNAL. 23 The Tribune says, a dispatch from the office of the Milwaukee Sentinel informs us that the full returns.of the state have been received, and that Col. Bashford, thp Repub lican candidate for Governor of Wisconsin is elected. It is generally conceded that the 1). -mot-rats or Harstow party have elected the nthcr candidates on the state ticket. The Republicans have one branch of the legisla ture, and the Barstows the other. Weston, the most rampant pro-slavery town in Missouri, has a population of three thousand, of whom one thousand are Ger mans, of free, slate sentiments, and two hun dred and fifty are slaves. It is on the banks of the Missouri, and has be on a place of lare trade, but the violent course of its lea ding inhabitants is rapidly op-rating against it.

242 THE PERRYSBURG JOURNAL. AN ADDRESS, DELIVERED BEFORE THE YOUNG MEN'S LITERARY ASSOCIATION OF PERRYSBURG, NOV. 23, 1855, BY JESSE S. NORTON, ESQ. Having been elected your president for the ensuing term, Ii appear bclore you on this occasion, gentlemen, for the perform ance of a duty which is so new, and foreign from my habits of thought, that I can scarcely hope for a creditable execution of the task. But I have not permitted reflections of this kind to deter me from manifesting my immediate attention to what I believe to be my duty; and to signify my 'approval of the objects, and my convictions of the utility of this association. I need not say that I feel highly gratified by this mark of your favor and confidence, although I cannot be ignorant of the duties and responsibilities which it imposes upon me. I trust, however, you will always find me ready to respond to every call of duty, whether in my present capacity or any other, and to manifest my prompt attention to whatever ma...

THE PERRYSBURG JOURNAL. good of the human race, to perpetuate his name and hand it down to posterity as one of the great benefactors of man, to originate new inventions and improvements of sufficient importance to accomplish these objects. It is us much as most men should hope for, or expect, to enjoy the innumerable inventions which, from tlic earliest ages, have been going on for the improve ment and civilisation of man. VV hen, however, we lookback and reflect on the wonderful effect the improvement in ma chinery has had in regard to economy of time and labor, we are struck with astonishment. Take, for instance, the inven tions of Arkwright for spinning cotton, Cartwright for weav ing various colors, and Whitney for separating the fibrous parts of the cotton from that to which it adheres, and see what e fleet they have had on all classes of society. It is said, that in consequence of these three inventions, the expense of necessary clothing is diminished two-thirds for every man ...

THE PERRYSBURG JOURNAL. precept compared with example is doubt and uncertainty compared with reality. These principles, in a more extensive sense, are applicable to nations as well as individuals ; and each country within itself should establish free commerce, so that the merits of every part may be known to the rest, and each profit by the excellence of the whole. To follow out this analogy through a liberal commercial intercourse, each nation can derive from all portions some useful customs, arts or laws. This country is, perhaps, more indebted to commerce, than any other, for its present position among the nations of the earth ; for, oth erwise, it would have been "born to waste its fragrance on the desert air.'' Commerce, liberally guarded and protected, is the channel through which we receive our supplies, and have our wants for comforts and luxuries gratified ; and in this way, by rendering the surplus productions of all countries more valuable in exchanging, it helps to excit...

250 THE PERRYSBURG JOURNAL. Kansas Difficulties. LAWRENCE, K. T., Nov, 26. The scene of the late tragic occurrence was Hickory Point, a settlement some twelve miles south from Lawrence, near the Wau karusa river. In that settlement there are several families of Missourians pro-slavery men. One of these, a Mr. Coleman, "jump ed the claim" he now holds, and built the house he has been occupying from malerialsi for the house of another man. Lately there! has been soma difficulty between this Cole.-j man and a young man named Charles W. Dow, who had a claim near the sain;1, place.. It seems that Coleman .and one or two of his neighbors and friends have burned a lime kiln on Dow's land, cutting the timber there-1 from. This, of course, gave offence, audi Dow prohibited them repeating the trespass.! It appears, however, that they had made upi their minds to do so. On last Thursday Dow had gone to the blacksmith shop, which is near Coleman's residence, and while there met Coleman. It appea...

Journal, contains the following news : There has been gre.at excitement through out the territory fur th; past two weeks, on nceount of the India ns. There seems to be un uprising a concert of action, between nil (he triors, both north, east and south of the Willamette and Umpqua Valleys. The tribes in Washington territory, in the neigh borhood (jf Fort Colville, have been dissatis fied for some time past. Ever since gold was discovered there, they have shown hos tility to the whites, and refuse to ncknowl-T-dge the treaties mad; by Gov. Stevens, and we are now in the midst of an Indian war. They killed Mr. IJolon, the Indian agent, and doubtless many others. Major I tul let, with 100 regulars, and one howitzer, proceeded immediately to the In di.m country, but was driven back with some loss. The only wonder is that he was not cut entirely to pieces.

252 THE PERRYSBURG JOURNAL. St. Louis, Djc. 19. A dispatch from In depencence of the 18th, says that the trouble at Lawrence, Kansas, was settled by the peo ple promising to deliver up the offenders; obey the luws of the territory : recognize the governor, as such, and conduct themselves lor the future as law abiding citizens should do. They refused, however, to deliver up meir arms. ine volunteers irom ivussouri have disbanded and returned to their homes. And this is the glorious fizzle after all the bluster and bravado of the border ruffians Of course the above alleged concessions of the free state men are absurd and as false as the other telegraphic dispatches from St. Louis have turned out to be. Thus ends the war. The reputation of Sharpe's rifles set- tied the matter. Pierce hesitated to order I out the regulars, and without the regulars nothing could be done. Most glorious fixzle !
