And the dream, too, had been his."

Discovery of Win. York's IJjdy. I
- From the Lawrence Tribune.
Our readers will remember veadincr
a l.rief account in the TrlLmte of
March 2th, of tin; mysterious dis
appearance of William York, of In.le
j.enuenee, Kansas, brother of Stale
Senator A. M. York, while en route
from Fort Scott to his home, on
horseback, on tho th o that month.
The incident was very extensively
published throughout the whole
country, from the' respectability and
prominence of the party through the
transient fame of his said brother.
Search, the most thorough of the
kind known in the State, was imme
diately instituted to trace out anil
tiif. ai:k :.iysti:i:y
of his disappearance, and with untir
ing energy was kept up to this pres
ent, culmination and discovery, ltiv
ers were dragged, and the route over
which he was supposed to have trav
eled, was searched with painful
detail and perseverance.
Yesterday the veil of mystery Avas
drawn aside, and the sad fate of the
long lost citizen fully settled.
The course of Mr. York has been
followed to the vicinity of Cherry vale,
Kansas, where all further trace was
lost. The farmers living in that
neighborhood were made acquainted
with the success of the search thus
far, ami entered into the work of in
vestigation with a laudable determin
ation to fathom the dark pall, and
soon i'.xed their suspicion upon a
family by the name of jender, resid
ing about six miles north of Cherry
valle, consisting of four persons

younger man's wife

About three wot ks ago this family

their cattle to starve on the farm,

constable of that place alter standing
two or three days unclaimed.
Yesterday two men v, ere looking at
the claim so suddenly vacated by the

We hope the pursuit of this JJonder

search for Mr. York, until the last
one of them feels the vengeance of an
outraged law and an exasperated
community. J-et the most experi

The people would have submitted

and extravagant Avaste of the peo
ple's money, done for the purpose
of cloaking the designs of the thiev
ing crow that composed a majority
of that Congress. Had they stop
ped at that, there; would have been
some show eif lvason and honest de
sign, but voting themselves an in
crease of salary (already too high,)
with the notorious back-pay scheme,
was too glaring a piece ef rascality
to pass unnoticed by an honest con
stituency. J hit for the heads e.f departments,
members of Congress and Territorial
officers, their allowances was amply
suilicient to remunerate their time-,
and sustain the dignity of their jo
sition. Just then we think Presi
dent Grant missed the most splen
eliel opportunity even' oflereel a chief
magistrate, immortalize himself, had
ht seen through the thieving scheme
of Ceingress, to enrich themselves at
the expense; of his responsibility.
He should have; promptly ve toed the
measure, defeated thereby the ne

operators and other reibbers t)f the
Government. The jietmle, who are
now crushed to earth by the load of
taxation imposed, r.p n them, would
have sustained him, though he might
never have aspired to oliicial posi
tion again, his name .Avould have;
gone down to posterity as a protec
tor and benefactor.
Honest, upright and patriotic as
we believe the President to to be,
we cannot he-lp but think that the
whole scheme '.vas gotten up by men
of the most corrupt and designing
principles. And that the addition
to the President's salary was only
made to catch that functionary, and
secure his approval to the notorious
scheme. A few men too honest, Ave
are happy to say, refuse to share; ill
the general plunder, and have re
turnee! the; amount due them to the
U. S. Treasury. The names of those;
men will live in the hearts of a grate
ful people, while that ed' thieves and
robbers who have plundered a con
fiding people, will be forgotten, and
burrieel beneath the contempt and
a ! -ion of an outraged community.

Enr.E Trade. The Xoav York
War!, I urges all the free trade ele
ments of the Union to feirm a coali

form a political party, for the pur
pose of wresting the.cmtrol of the
Government from the republican par
ty. The present high t.niii' is very
(ppressive an.l the people must have
a change, if they desii-e re lief. The
Wur!,l invites all the iriemls of free
trade and light taxation to lay aside
all prejudice and act as a unit. In this
Avay. it argues, victory is certain. It
prefers this form shouhl be workeel

advises all free trailers to consolidate

llcprtsentation in the Senate.
The six Xoav England States have
twelve Unite-el Stattts Senators, while
the great States of Ohio and In
diana, although they have a million
more people, have but four. The
Senate)rs represent tho States, and
this unequal representation is the
acknowlo.lgemcnt by the fundamen
tal law of the doctrine of State Sov
ereignty. Every Senator from Xew
England professes to abhor this doe
trine, and has uniformly voted dur
ing tho past 'twelviCoavis for the
measures that have been brought
forv.aiil for the jmrpose of infring
ing upon and curtailing the rights of
States, yet they have been careful
to preipose' nothing that looks to the
remedying of this, the only eibje-c-tiemable;
featuro e.f the doe-trine.
This is one; of the bundle; ef incon
sistencies of which Ihidicalism is
made up. and displays, in glaring
colors, its animus. It is plain that
if the e!e)ctrine of State Sovereignty
Avas exploded by the war, the pres
ent plan (f roprer-cntation in the
Senate should be; abolished, and
Senators, like lu-presontativos in the
Eower House; ef Congress, appor
tioned to the; States aceortling to
their population. The Iladioal par
ty has not done this f.jr the reason
that it would curtail their power In
cutting down the representation from
Xew England. This proves that
even in hostility to " Slate Sover
eignty " it has provisions- and ex
ceptions where it is beneficial to
lladiealism, tho doctrine; is sound
and patrietic; but where it militates
