SANSOM, editor of ttie F niton I)"inter' ', |i,su>a>!er at McConnels- F'lig, ■ n li :jte .r the Assembly, late ly applicant fir the Sup i intendenlship of Pub lic Printing nt Hirrisbnrg, etc., etc., Iras de<-m --cd it hi:, duty t > impeach our veracity and to deny that we gave a truthful account ot the Democratic Meeting heid in this place ori the evening o{ the Sib inst. This new +sgonistes in the lists of misrepresentation certainly de serves the palm. 11-ar hiui: • 'Our friend df, yrs ofihe pediore (t ,-z rttr. is, we think, slightly tiuTlnkeri when tie >eys that the res olution offered bv .Vf AJ. TI. R. TATE, at "he close of tise late Democratic meeting in Bedford adopt ed by acclamation, a.ui'l the most enthusiastic ap plause." We flunk Mr. SAN- •: is "slightly mistai: -n," if he supposes that he cm make any one wit•> was present, at the UI 'T N :_R, believe tlia' .MAI. TATE'S resolution WAS not adopted as we staled. True, the President of the meeting did not put it to vote, for it v. ~s unnecessary to do so, when " with such a thundering shout of applause that no sine man in the rom could rloubt that it was unanimously approved. We sa'd that if was adopted by "acclamation"; we say so again, and we mean what we say. .Nor will Mr. SANSOM deny the truth of this allega tion, when he refers to his dictionary and finds that the word "acclamation" signifies " shout of applause, utiertd by a multitude.'" Il he will deny thai when MAJ. TATE offered his res olution to the meeting, it was received by shouts of applause uttered by tne multitude present, then, his conscience is more elastic than we thought il was. Mr. Sarisom also says that we "labor under a great misapprehension" when we say that the resolution endorsing HON. WILSON KEILLV was not unanimously adopted hv the meeting. In raving this, however, he admits that the Com mittee on resolutions, composed of the best Dem ocrats of the county—two from each election district—when in session, struck from the resoiu on in question every word contained therein en dorsing Mr. REILLY. He further admits that Ihere were "a few persons who opposed" that resolution when it was before the meeting. If, then, the Committee on resolutions, among whom were to be found most of the active Democrats of the county, opposed the aforesaid resolution: if it met with opposition when before the meeting, as Mr. Sansom says; were we not justified in saying that it v\as not unanimously adopted? But Mr. SANSOM knows that when the naked question of Mr. Rally's endorsement wzs put to the meeting, there was a strong vote in the negative, so strong, indeed, that it was hard to tell whether the ayes or the nc s had it. If he does n't know this, he can obtain satisfactory evidence of It, by inquiring of the honest yeomanry ..ot Info ford ccuakv who posed that meeting. We would advise our Iriend, SAN&OM, to keep cool and not to burst the boiler of his indignation without cause. He need not fear that the •♦friends of Mr. REILLY in this Congressional District," will not have "fair play" in Bedford county, as lie intimates, though we shall tr!i the truth, when we publish accounts ot public meetings, be it to the damage of those gentle- men's purposes, or not. In tact, so far as tee Bedford G izeite is concerned, Mr. Rmi.i.r has had more than "lair play," fur we have never vet published a line that was intended to injure hrm, and in writing the statement of the? late Democratic meeting which appeared in our paper, vve were particular so to word that part < f it relating to Mr. RSILLV, AS to save that gentle man the mortification which it is natural to sup pose he would have felt, bad we said broadly and plainly, as we truthfully might I ave d >ne, ihat there was a tremendous NO! shouted forth a raid his endorsement, by that meeting. Nor d. we say Ik™ for the purpose of'injuring Mr. R .!!y. We would never have r<-feried to Ibis i had not those who assume to U his excius;-. • friends and champions forced us to do - . To conclude, we would say to our frinidiy censor, that if lie will only attend to hrs own affairs in Fulton, and see that the D.ur Ciif 4 ci <>t Fulton and Franklin will no', be aga ;i r r resente.l in the L gislature, ' v an Ah -1-T we can assu-e him that the D*m -crats of M f.rd, t I-mselves, without any a; ' from A re Jl, wilt have spirit enough to correct us, should we ever, m any degree, -iu.rer>r-* *nt them. \'e Mitur ntra rpLiain." .•Th- cobbler >!i >"ili r.ot go hey ' : hit !a f, is asty i g which our Ug-.sGt rs .at H trrisburg might, v ith gr at credit to tneivuelv: an i greater benefit to the Commonwealth, erect into a rule for the government of their official c -nducf.

To the Editor of the Union: Sir,: 1 have already communicated to the Committee on Territories in the Senate a full statement of tacts connected with the applica tion of Kansas tor admission into the Union as a Slate. I need not repeat those /acts in this pa per, as they wiii doubtless reach the public in a few days. It is with reluctance that i re/er to matters pertaining solely to the local politics of the Territory in which I live, and with which, to some extent, f have been connected ; but the various and contradictory statements that have been made by unscrupulous and irresponsible letter writers to the public press, touching the discharge of my official duties as president of the constitutional convention, make the duly impeiative. Excitement, conflict, and great confusion must necessarily attend the■ ;K fijc a CulfiTnOnTfy Brought together f r aa, all parts of th- world, and actuated by diffident objects, motives, and prejudices, if© Terri iury ever organized in the United States tias sul fated more from causes of this character than Kansas. The conflict about the shaping of our institutions, so constantly directed by persons and parties outside of the Territory, has forced within its limi l -- cias* of population from every pot lion of the Union, most dissimilar in charac ter and with the strongest predisposition to col lision. 1 not dis rder u-i c infusion, the viola tion oi individual and public rights and duties, should lesult from such causes, may be deplored, but could not be prevented. Good m w n have s )Ught the peaceful remedy to these controver sies in the ball't-box. Bad men have been governed by no srrup! s as to public or private action. In trie periodical addresses out forth bv the taw-and-oriT r deniocr itT i arty id Tan- every foieign influence has been iej.u hated, and every effort made to procure 1 >r Kar.i stfie | quiet, peaceful sett|ement t-< a : ! tju.-.itions of public policy hv the fair and ho'i--st expression of the popular will. To the fulj-st extent these r? commendations have nut pr- ha'dy prevail >J with th ir o'wn party f.i-u!s who, in opposi tion !■; a party knowing an i respecting no law, i h.ay have 1 • driven to the • xti iinity of wrong and the violation of r ■' ■ right and duty. But :l is not my o!j>-..t i-.: : > i lu .. full examination ; if th *su ,■ ot. -• o ject now is to place mv | self right be; - t e ; - >n the subject of the I election returns i >: : f the legi.Jgture |ui Leavenwoith c- .. e statements in refer , .nce to which have i <Ol so conflicting and cory ; tra-lictory. O.i the IT!) of J muary, the day h. fore I . opened the i - :.- of the iv.m-as elections for and under th. r • ■-.!<• ,n, I was calle 1 upon , :-y several gentleio iruin Lawrence, leaded , by Doctor cr Gov rr r II djinson, and asked if 1 would be govern i, in determining '.he result * >i the election in Levenworlh county, by the | -worn statement ci one o! the judges of election at the precinct known as the ' Delaware Cross ing." I replied, no ! That I couid not, and would not, go behind the election returns. It was then stated that the question was as to the legality of returnsand fraud was charged, on what information I did not learn, upon the ground that the returns sent to me were not the true returns as approved ar.d signed by the judges of election. To give them full oppoit unity of submitting testimony as to the legality of the returns, I told the gentlemen tiiat, as the legis lature would have no duties to pei f>nn until af ter the decision of the question of admission, there could be no necessity for the immediate issuance of certificates of election in that or any other case, and that the difficulty which thev suggested could, in the in-an tun -, be fully iu ! vestigat-d. | This statement I :. ; :!e t he next day in the I presence of the gentlemen who were present at : liie opening ui the returns. I aLu authorized j Gov. D nv.-r to state that if the judges of eiec j sion will furnish., under oath, a slatem-m! ; that the return m nie was t-j's-* cud fiaudule: ?, 1 Would tteat such state,in nt as a corrected re turn, and be governed by it in giving certifi cates of leti ion. 1 know nothing of the Del aware Crossing returns, only that public rumor had given to the democratic party a majority f*J that preciuef of some three or four hundred. Su *oosed the returns from that precinct wi re I in my office, and was undeceived only when all : the returns were opened and they were not ! | found. These returns were of great importance • :as they determined not only the political com- ; ! plexion of Leavenworth county, but of both i branches of the legislature. x\s they stood at the opening of the returns, without the Dela ware Crossing vote, the republicans had a ma- j jority in L-a venworth county, and consequent- j iy, a majority of both branches of the legisla- j lure. Iu order to ascertain the truth, I sent a mess enger to that precinct to see the judges of elec tion and learn the facts as to the charge of fraud in the return. In the mean lime, the sealed returns from 'hat precinct were put into my hamis by Mr. Diefendorf, one of the commis , iners tor Leavenworth county, and on the same day that the messenger returned fron Del aware Crosisng precinct. I received the re turns ami the messenger's report at Weston, Missouri, on the 21st day of January. The ' niessr.oger brought to me the following sworn statements of the judges and clerks of the pre -1 cinct in question : I TERRITORY OF KANSAS, I ) County of Leavenworth. ( The undersigned, judges and clerks of the election held lor State officers and members of ! the-State legislature, held at the precinct known ! as Delaware Agency, on the fourth day of Janua ry, A. D. 1858, do hereby certify that the re : turns made by us of said election were correct I and genuine, and that any statement made by j any person as to the vote of said precinct can ' oniv be determined, as to its truth or falsity, by a reference to said returns made by us as /nana-" gers and clerks of said election at said precinct.

JAMES FINDLAY, j TERRITORY OF KANSAS, j County of Johnson. j Before me, Sam'l Salters, an acting justice of the peace in and for the county and Territory aforesaid, personally appeared Late Monday, Theodore F.

ISAAC MUNDAY, THEODORE F. GARRETT, JAMES C. GRINTER, W. C. WILSON, JAMES FINDLAY, Sworn to and subscribed before me this eigh teenth day of January, A. D. 1858. ' SAMUEL M. SALTERS, J. P. TERRITORY OF KANSAS, [ County of Johnson. \ Before me, Samuel Salters, personal iy appea red Theodore F. Garrett, who, being sworn, says that on the 11 lh day of January'he was arrested in Leavenworth county, under, as it was said, a warrant, and taken to Lawrence, by an armed party of ten or eleven, and, while he was under arrest, a proposition was made to him to make a new poll-book, (by some one of the free-State party in Lawrence, and bethinks by a man named Ewing,! which poll book should be made out, so that General Calhoun would receive it, which deponent, being in du rance, him or them he supposed would be * ll— eighteenth day of January, 1858. SAMUEL M. SALTERS, J. P. These depositions impressed my rrind fully that the returns placed that day in my hands were true. 1 entertained no particle of doubt about the result, when, in the presence of Colo nel Starks and oth-rs, I opened the returns and found a majority of 379 voles for the democrat- ic ; irty. i concluded, as a matter of course, that the d' of the judges and clerks were made with.aiyll knowledge of the contents of the returns, Oien for the first time in rnv possess ion. The returns, together with the depositions of the judges and clerks, I sent to my office, at Lecompt on, by Mr. Brooks, one of the clerks in the surveyor general's office. lam informed, in a letter from Mr. Brooks, that he placed them in the hands of General Maclean,the chipf clerk in the surveyor general's office, on the 27th day of January. lat once said to mv friends, ami others who approached me on the subject, that the democratic party had a majority in the leg islature, and authorized the publication of such a statement. I came to Washington with no paiticie of doubt on my mind as to the result. On the Saturday night after iny arrival in Washington, I called to pay my respects to an old friend Judge Douglas, and before leaving he placed in my hands a paper he had just rect-iv jed from Kansas. This paper contained what , purported to be the depositions of the judges of eltjuit! >n for I tie precinct of Delaware Crossing ; and in which the judges deposed that there were but forty.three votes polled at that precinct. I could not act, or form any opinion upon a news paper publication : but I immediately informed my friends that if the statement so made should prove true, they must inevitably control my ac tion. I have received and opened a return from the Delaware Crossing precinct which gives to the demociatic party a major it y of 379 votes, and would thus secure a majority to the | democratic legislative ticket of Leavenworth county, and a majority on joint baliot in the leg islature, under lite constitution. If the judges of election at that precinct furnish to me, as 1 informed Gov. Denver before leaving Kansas, a j reliable and sworn statement that but forty-three ; votes were polled ther-, 1 should make myself ia party to the fraud if I declined to be govern ed by the oaths of the judges. It is a question (going to the legality of the returns. Of that I I may judge and determine. 1 shall do so ; and, jin my determination, 1 shall be governed by justice, truth and the right. 1i it shall, as it probably will, place the government of the State of Kmas in the hands of my enemies, no I one will ngrel it more; but yet no one, not j even a black republican, could perform the du ity uiih more of the ctm*i:i<Hism ss of right than j I shall feel in the honest discharge of my official i duties. J Siave written to Gov. Denver to pro cure tlie sworn statements of the judges of this | controverted precinct, and to have them taken under such circumstances as will secure a free : and unbiassed exhibition of facts. By the sworn (statements, so procured, I shall be governed in • giving the certificates of election to the mem i br? of the legislature from Leavenworth coun !*'?• J. CALHOUN.

We are astounded at the fact that any Democrat could be so recrea nt to principle and so untrue to the interests of of his country, as to lend his aid in the perpe tration of so enormous a swindle.

UNITED STATES SEN A Tons FROM KAN- to the latest pronunciamienfo immortal John Calhoun, the organic State Legislature of Kansas will he in the hands free State party. In this event, the first from the admission of Kansas under the Lecompton constitution will most probably be the presentation to the United States Senate of the credentials of General Jim Lane and Gover nor Robinson as the duly eleolpd members of that body fiom the State of Kansas. What a commentary will this he upon the present hue and cry against the administration for "selling the cane of freedom in Kansas to the siavp pow er!" On the other hand, what better proof could he demanded of the self-sacrificing and pa triotic labors of John Calhoun in behalf of "popular sovereignty" than the election of Lane and Robinson to the Senate under his Lecomp ton programme? Yet this is the man denounced as a traitor and a vagabond bv ali the anfi-sla verv ae-itators in and out of Kansas, when, in truth, bp has done more to make Kansas a free State than all the ship's crew of them put togeth er.
