The message of Governor Reeder to the Kan ?as Legislature contends for the right of the people to settle their "wn affaire uninflu enced by the other State', and s. ys that the territorial legislature may acton the question of slavery to a limited extent, and temporari ly regulate it He directs attention to the de finition .if the boundariesof the counties and district*, an! the qualifications of voters. He Teeomroerds that a stringent liquor law be adopted on account of the Indians. He thinks ?that a light tax only is required, and contends that pre-emptions may be taxed He recom mends the immediate ?-<tablishment of the j?eat of government and announces that the population of the territory amounts to 3.3W3 females, and 5.133 male The legi.-! tture f:vd upon the Shawnee ^fission as the temporary seat of government. The Governor vetoed the measure, but the legislature adjourned t<? meet again at Shaw nee Mi^-ion An Avala>? h of Breau.?Yesterday there Here one hundred ears loaded with (new) ivhtat at Chattanooga, ready to move, and the depot crammed to its utmost capacity.

To-day five full trains will god wn. and we sunj?>se each ear will contain one hundred and limty Melts.

WA8HIFGI'jirirEWS_AND GOSSIP. H*aiothinfr New TTnd^r thaitm.?W? w*?ch the progress of oar eountry in the arts with peculiar delight. in?omuoh as it is very clear that th^ development of its resources dependa in a grea* measure upon the increasing adapta tion of all things mechanimal, ao as to apply them most oconomioally to the condition of circumstances. under which, for the nonce, our fellow citizens have recourse to such aids. Steam, though it has worked wonders for us, is. practically, yet in its infancy. So general is thin belief, that no scientific man would be surprised on learning that improvements in its application to business purpose* have been made, which double its practical effect, while they subtract one-half from the present cost of using it. Indeed, at this moment, steam-en gines of various patterns are to bo had. which costing half as much aa similar machines did ten years ago, pcrfurm twice the effective work at one-half the expense of running them. Yet, except those engaged in the business of manufacturing them, few. indeed, can name any particular leading improvement in the steam engine, which has contributed to bring about these so important results in a remark able degree. So, also, in nearly every other branch of the arts have similar improvements been made in the same decade, and in none more than in that of manufacturing printing presses, which, within that epoch, havo been so improved as that with about the same power to drive them, they will with ease accomplish four times ??? much as the presses which then were regarded as the models in all the world for rapidity ami neatness, in the way in which they did the work allotted to them. Thepe thoughts, referring as they do to things of great public importance, suggested themselves to our mind on examining a riding saddle which has recently been introduced into the military service of the United States, after having been duly submitted to such tests of it? entire fitness and applicability, as are undergone nowhere else in the United States than before Uovemmeut commissions. It is the invention or arrangement, patented of course, of our enterprising fellow-citizen, Mr. Daniel Campbell, saddler and harness maker. Its peculiarities consist in setting the parts of the tree which bear on the horse on springs, tho tendency of which is to open upwards, rather than to elose in. and the animal's back. The under portion of the parts in ques tion are shaped with great care, so as precisely to fit the animal's anatomy, while the top of the saddle i? also shaped so as to accommodate the form of the rider much more comfortably than any other saddle we ever saw. The hols ters are secured with spring catches, which hold them securely without resorting to buckles; while the holster covers are patent leather slides. movable by the slightest pressure ?>f tho finger, and yet completely covering and protecting the weapon from the weather. The valise, too, i-? so fixed on the back of it, as to hang in two parts diagonally down, al most parallel to the rider's thighs as he sits, en cheva!relieving the hor^efrom its weight across his loins, and remedying the jolting or ^winging heretofore incident to the u?c of the valise, unless always fastened on with much greater care than nine-tenths uf those who use them bestow on such an apparent trifle, though all accustomed to carry them frequently on long journeys, are ?w.ire that nothing serves to jade a horse more than a poorly fastened weight, great or small, upon his loins. Mr. Campbell, in these improvements, has cer tainly done much, indeed, to prevent galling the backs of horses, and breaking them down needle?ly. as there can be no chafing when his saddle is used. It requires, by the by, but the buckling of two straps to saddle a hor.-e reaily f<>r mounting where it is used. Where as. in the saddle used in the service up to this time, sixteen buckles are to be fastened before that work is completed. We understand that four bunded of these improved saddles have been ordered by the War Department, to be manufactured for the immediate use of the mounted troops in the far West. Tho Colonization Cause?Some friend of the African colonization sends us the following interesting panegyric upon it: '? We meun African colonization. Never did it stand on higher ground. Nerer has it awakened so widw and lively an inter eat among the colored people. The Liberian Re public i.s a fact. The charter of African free dom on African soil is a truth?an experi mental reality. They have there laid founda tions for all future time?not in riot and blood shed, but in peace and quietude. Hundreds of miles of sea-coast are possessed by Libcrians. and tliou^iKi'ls ?n thousands of native Africans seek the protection of the new republic. They a3kfor liberty and law. Africa is no longer a blank on the map of the world. We have gone too tar now to recede. We are pledged before the world to accomplish the regenera tion of Africa. This is no visionary project; and, therefore, listen to the 3olid arguments by which the enterprise is supported. 1. Liberia has shut the gates of the slave trade, so long the bane and the pain of Africa, and ha* substituted the legitimate traffic in articles of commerce Sh<* has opened a market for the world. 2. The efforts and success of the Coloniza tion Society have produced a marked change in the minds of the colored people here, who are more and more looking to that land as their permanent home. 3. The Society does not use its funds to buy the freedom of slaves, but to fit out and send to Liberia those who are offered for that pur pose; and the number is great?more than can be accommodated. 4. See how in this enterprise the home and the foreign principles are united. If any ob ject to foreign missions, here '? the Greeks are at your doors askiug you to help them, while they are trying to help themselves. If any would do gt->d abroad, send these influences to the Continent of Africa. The deeper the darkness of the past, the more brilliantly will the light shine j. Our cause unites the suffrages of the best minds of all denominations in Church or Stata, as being the only practical way yet discovered of treating with the colored population. rt. Colonization spreads the sail of the emi grant ship for the African shorws. and leads the way for such a final exodus of this population as would astonish those incredulous minds, which could look forward to the developments of futurity. 7. The colonization system eminently jno* motes the union of the States, as might be shown by various arguments, one of which is, that the enemies of the Union are the ene mies of colonization, while it# friends are the true friends of their eountry. 8. Christianity, with its immortal hopes and never-failing blessings has been planted there, and will spread its influences orcr the cjntinent Shall we open oor hearts and hand* to for ward this great work ? The tn-Mury of the society needs to be replenished Multitudes are applying for a passage to the land of their father*. Shall they be denied7 Every emi grant. who desires it, is presented on hi? ar rival, with a farm, and is sustained fur six months?, until h* can bring into requisition his t wn resource*. j. ^ d Funny.?The Organ gravely azures its r iders that the failure of the contestants for the seat* fraudulently filled in the Council Board of Washington at the last election, to prosecute their claims ou Jthe day before yesterday before the election committee of the Board, is proof positive of the falsity of the allegation of frauds committed on the 4th of June last! It will be recollected that a majority of this committee have taken pre cis*y such oath? in their midnight-working lodges, ns were taken by a majority of the election committee of the other Board, which resulted in the consummation of the frauds of the election (lay and the setting at defiance of the admitted decision of our highest court of law in the cases of Messrs. Gideon and Fiti patrick. The Orgtt7i forgets to mention that the action of tho Board of Aldermen and their committee on Monday night, made it appa rent to nil blessed with an ounce of brains, that no amouut of law, justice, and right that tiic contestants might have on their side, would possibly procure for them that justice a* the hands of tho lower board and its com mittee, which the secret oaths taken in the Know Nothing lodges forbade. Under such cir cumstances, Mud as what was done in t^ie upper board in the same connection ha* de monstrated past denial, that no legal or moral t -ligation is permitted to ?tand in the way of the c -minands of the lodges, ?H sensible persons rnu-t see at a glance that the further piosecution of the contests would be about the most useless application of time and talent* imaginable as useless- as administering the pledge of honesty to every inmate of the Dis trict Penitentiary with the expectation that t-i-y will observe it The State cf Affairs in the Crimea.?The a-ixiety with reference to tho condition of af fairs io the Crimea manifested by public men h. re, is as intense at this moment, if not more h.tense than ever before. This is evident in a thousand ways, but in none more than in tue flocks in which they come to the Star office in person, or send to us when each suc ceeding steamer's news is expected, for ear liest copies of this journal. Among military men in Washington, it is very generally be lieved that the Allies now have but three desperate alternatives left thom. First, to repeat the assault of June 18th, with even more murderously disastrous consequences to themselvea, as tho impregnable Redan and Malakoff batteries must be taken before there can be the slightest hope that they can carry .Sevastopol by assault. Next, to retreat to their shipping, which cannot be done without immense low, unless the Russians ehoo*e to permit them t?> depart in peace. Third, to essay t?> penetrate into the interior, where they will find on all really important points, lines of fortifications as complete, quite as complete for defence, as those in and around Sebasto pol. That is, if they make that attempt they iiiust reduce a new Scbast<q>oI every fifty mile* on their march into flic interior of the country. 1 aving their rear uncovered, too. and making the attempt with the knowledge that thoir re turn to the coast cannot be effected except through seas of blood, as it were. One has but to look closely at a go?nl military map of the seat of war to comprehend tho truth of these remark;?that is, if be has carefully -ludied the history of tho campaign up to this tune. The Ijllowing from the Crimean cor respondcncc <?f trie London Timr.i tells the story: Lord Raglan s amiable disposition is acute ly touched bv the loss of tv many gallant men. ' m>sell, 1 admit that, knowing nothing of war. and merely chronicling, a.- fur as oos-ibK ti.e results of its op, rations, I do not see any possibility of our being able to abandon our present position on the south side of Sebasto pol. or to make a general attack on the Ru? s. in s rinies which are encamped before us. ?Lvery ravine has been made another Sebasto p?-l by their engineers. Our land transport corps is so hardly pressed by the service of the sh ge artillery, mat, a* I aw informed, the r i t oili of tuel lias been, on several occasions re cently, not forthcoming for the trooiw to the luii amount. ' It is to be presumed the Allied gen erals are acquainted with some facts respect the strength and position of the Russian army which induce them to think it would be U:ia<lvi?able to break uj> our camp and try to force the passes of the Belbek. They may d.?trust their own strength or the efficiency of toeir means of transport, or they may be de terred by the force and the attitude of tho enuMty, they may be influenced by considers* tons, and may act on information of which we are ignorant; but the belief of many officers o! interior rank and of great intelligence i^ that the proper way to attack Sebastopol is to put finger and thumb on its windpipe, no mai lt i how tar the place may be removed from th-j great organ itself, and let it starve. We ? ;e not strong enough, it is said, to invest the outeid?. tbr we are only >10.000 men. and it would require an armv of ^0,000 or 200,000 men to occupy the linos w hich would enable them to resist at all poiuts lbe attempts of the enemy, whether from w ithin or trom without the cordon of invest ment. Ike Allied generals perhaps feel that their only ehauce of cohesion exists in their l.-ing together, and that it would be unsafe to divide and split up this army of English, French. Sardinians, and Turks, not only on S'JKS.,,ut on ",her" *? -It must be remembered thisgreat army is no living corps. It is encumbered with huge an puratus of war. with an immense amount of materia/ with seige-trains and heavy ordnance and warlike stores which could not be left in tue hands of the enemy, and which, having taxed the energies of two great nations in their transport and accumulation, cannot now be carried away ,u a few weeks. We have con verted the plateau into a great fortress, com manding kaimosch and Balaklava. If we abandoned it to-morrow the Russians would bo hi it the same evening ; if we left a small force t > occupy it. the enemy would soon discover our weariness, and either cariy the plateau bv J movement, or weary out the troops and u< leaf them in detail by constant sorties In the extraordinary country in which we are waging war. there is this condition?that the southern coast where water abounds is so moun tainous that It is impossible for artillery or cavalry to traverse it by any but the military road, which passes through tremendous defiles Jin 1 ravines iato which a general might *-??' hesitate to lead an army. On the north of this range, on the contrary, where the whole coun try is open and the gun-ca/rlage can find a road wherever it turns in this season, water is so scanty and ?? ? apart, that it would be h iiardous to march a large army through it, w hen a ruthless and active enemy, driven to desperation, might soon render it uutenable by tampering with a few wells. In our march to Kair.mita bay each day's work was clearly in dieated bv the nvers. With a determined en emy we should have had to fight for our water every day-first at Boulijanah, then at the Alan, next at the Katscha, and aftewards at tJie iielbek ; but northwards of Perekop is in accessible and poisonous, and the shores of the Siwash arc certain death?more certain and n aiok than the marshes ef the Dobrudsoha, at tne recollection of whloh th? br*ve?* French man tremble* '?We know nothing of the roads aero** the Siwash. When at Genitchi the flying squad ron found that ther oould barely approacnthe place, and it would have been extremely im prudent to go past the straits in light boats, which might hare been destroyed by a few field piece* by an unseen enemy along its banks.

From the Crimea, we learn that Lord Ka-'lan O was buried on the third of July, with great p^mp and circumstance. Itumors prevailed that Pcli^ier, tho C0111 mander-in-Chiet of the French armies would bo superseded. The allies were strengthening their advances against Malakofl. A telegraphic dispatch dated July 4th says: Tho works of the allies aio progressing satisfactorily. A French bat teiy of i?0 guns has been nearly completed in front of Careening bay to keep offthe Russian ships. The Vienna papers say that Prince Uortsch ak-,ff h ts sent for 24.000 additional troops. Gen. Linrandi's army has been reinforced with another division. The Sardinians and Turks under Omar Pa cha have made excursions to the interior from Tchernaya without resistance. Numerous works of art have been captured, and the Kertsch museum is now on its way to Paris. A careful estimate shows that the war has i already cost half a million of lives. Russian accounts from tho Baltic to June 1W 1 say that the allied flotilla, with 180 puns, fired eight hours against the batteries at the mouth of the Naval river, on the Southern shore of j the Gulf of Finland, without effort nnd then j withdrew. The allies afterward made a de scent 011 Kotka Island and destroyed the gov i ernment stores there. Subsequently an attack ? was made on the port of Revel without effect ing auything.
