TttE Contest for a Conoressional Dele gate in Kansas ?From information that has accumulated upon us direct from Kaneaa with in the last two or three weeks, we have every reason to fear that the Law and Order party of the Territory may be defeated in the election of a delegate in the House of Representative! of the United States soon to come off. The truth is, the nomineo of the Democratic Territorial Convention proves to be unaccepta ble to a large portion of the Democracy of the Territory for various reasons, principally, we presume, on account of flaws that have been picked in his record as the former Governor of Michigan. The conservative Northern Demo crats?those from the North opposed to the plots and schemes of Lane and his brother abolition ists?according to latest accounts were about to place on the track a Mr. Stephens, formerly of New York, against him, while few of the South ern Democrat* seemed willing to support him. Under such circumstances, unless their inter party difficulties can be adjusted, we can see little hope that the Democracy of the Territory will do their whole duty in the coming contest there. Surely, these are not times wherein they can afford to squabble among themselves, when so much depends on the stern and har monious front they oppose to their common enemy?the Topcka Constitution party of the Territory. TnE Railroad Stock Imbroglio at tiik NoRTn.?The New York Conner and Enquir er, commenting upon an article in the London Times describing the difficulty in which honest shareholders in some of the non-paying Eng lish railroads arc, in the mutter of comprehcnd I ing for what good purposes they were ever built, takes occasion to describe tho condition of American railroad affairs in Wall street, and in so doing bears out what we have more than once said, of late, in tho ?>tar, with reference to the coudition of northern railroad afl'airs. Its remarks, which convey sound lessons, indeed, are as follows: "Let the old English shareholder be trans formed into an American one, standing on this I side of the water, in almost any part of Wall street, with his hands playing around at leisure I in the sudilen roominess of his pockets, and we I think the American will say that it is not neces I *ary for him to wait for 'some day' to arrive in or der fully to understand the present philosophy of railways, for what they seem to be madt*. on what theory and design, and that not the slight I est puzzle in reference to liiein clouds the fiery, I and not the -soft' sunset of his mind, lie will say that the apparent philosophy of railways is to form a stock list of 'fancies' for the Wall street Hoard of Brokers to exhibit each day, in a state of tluctnation, pleasant to some and not so pleas 1 ant to others ; that they seem made for the play I ing cards with which the Bulls and Bears of Wall stieet can gamble to an extent more ruinous than by regular gambling at a faro table; that as I such playing cards they seem made to tempt Bank and Trust Companies to leave their legiti I mate business and stake their funds on the turn I of the Wall street Railroad stock die; and that Ijeing thus the gambling tools of Wall street Bulls and Bears, and the tempters of Banks and Trust Companies, they seem made to bring al>out I every now and then a financial 'smash" just the financial 'smash' that has occurred in Wall street the last few days?a financial 'smash' which has nothing to do with the resources, the real wealth I and prosperity of a great country, but solely with J the stock gambling of Wall street. '?This isthe present apparent philosophvof rail I roads, their present apparent theory aud design, I and the present apparent solution of the question, I what railroads were made for. Such is the ap parent philosophy of railways, in view of the dis arranged state of financial affairs of the last week, but such is not their real philosophy in view of the wants, the resources, and the energies of this country, at any time. Railways are chief among our great financial interests, and there is no reason why they should not always be strong, steady I and paying interests. Why should railroad I stocks be made thefootballs of the stock-gamblers I in Wall street, and not the stocks of the solid banks of that locality. Yet the stock of the solid banks of Wall street, we are happy to say, form a very small capital with a narrow margin for Bulls and Bears to play with, while the air has been fairly darkened with the railroad paper which the Bulls and Bears have kept playing, I until their contrary grabs at it have torn it into pieces, which have fallen on the street in heaps. I over which the grabliers are limping now in a very 'lame' state. Why should this lie so? Why should Banks lie better managed for solid I investmentsthan railroads ? W hy should the one pay and the other not ? Commerce needs Banks, and Banks pay for investments in them because commerce does need them. Commerce and a hundred other investments need, must have, rail roads. and why should not ia:lroad stock, pay for investment, as regular. large, and healthy dividends as banks ? There is no reason why. We are fast people, we must'go ahead,' must bind, for our convenience and profit, the extrem I ities of the country to each other as near as speed I can accomplish it, and the iron track, and the lo I comotive, are the great means to do it. Docs any one suppose that the people of this country are I not willing to i<ayfor this accommodation, to pay I for the track the locomotive, and tL? car that en'. ables them to 'go ahead'according to their heart's I desire, and according to tlie ve?y instinctive nature of a Yankee ? They are willing to pay for I it. and it is only for railruad man u'eiuent to say I that it shall 1 >e done, and tbey wnl do it. " If, Lowever, railroad management takes them over a certain space of track for hity cents, it is not likely that they w;ll spontaneously and in the sublimity of generosity offer to remedy railroad mismanagement by paying a dollar. This would be violating the true American prin ciple of getting everything as cheap as you can ; I and if railroad management gives the thing too I cheap, it is the fault of the railroad, and not that I of the rule of cheapness, which is never to be vio I lated. Let, then, American railroad management I redeem its past shortcomings, and ask a paying tariff, and it will l>e given. Then, if the surface of the country were twice as black with railroad I tracks as it is at present, the cars upon them would lie as full as they are now, and the stocks I of the companies would pay a living, solid, and I healthy profit. There is not the slightest doubt I about it We must4 go ahead,: and we are daily I growing more numerous and asking for greater I means for our onwaid inarch. Let, then, railroad I management give up a senseless competition, 1 which results but In destroying cheapness, and I let th <t management make those who use rail I roads pay fairly for the convenience and the ad I vantages they afford In other words, let railroad I stocks i?e made, as they can lie by right manage I inent, to pay?be made, as they can be, solid in I vestment*?and then they shall l.e redeemed fiom I the slough of despond, into which stock gam I bling has now cast them. If the expetience of I the last two weeks shall bring about such a result, I the present railroad crash' will not have been in I vaiu. and even the iniquity of Wall-street stock I gambling will unwittingly have played a losing I card, for the benefit of the community and the I great interests of the country." I Fko* the Si'RiNcs.?A jaunting Washing I Ionian writes us the following letter : Kot KRH.rx. k, Ai.cm Spkinus, f Rockhiidge couuty, Va , Aug. -J1?, 1*57 \ Editor uj th' Slur : Leaving Washington at 0 I o'clock a in., we proceeded to Alexandria, and I thence by the Orange and Alexandria aud Central I Kailroau to Mil thorough, distant about one hun dred and ninety miles from Alexandria, and six I from this place. By means of the iri n horse, speeding on his way, we arrive at Gordousville I aitout twelve o'clock, distai.t about eighty miles I from Alexandria; this portion of the road passii g I through a remarkable level country. At Goi I dousville we changed cars, and having taken our I seats, the iron horse anorted the signal for stait | ing and we were off again, and very soon we per I ceive a remarkable difference In the character of I the country, it being now a succession of hills and valleys. Speeding on We arrived at the liase I of the Blue Rtdge Mountains, here we stopped. 1 dividing the train and attaching only two cars to I each powerful locomotive, We moved on attain I and commenced our journey up the mountain. aud as we slowly pro. ee? ed along in our fearful I ascent, we cast o i. eyes out to tbe left and dls I covered that we were moving along on the very I brink of a precipice, extending down hundreds of feet ill to the valley below Cast your eyes fo J the right, and there, for huud.eds of feet, uprises the reiuaiiiing portion of the mountain. And now we have arrived at its summit, we here behold a panoramic view that beggars description?the tieautiesof nature displayed in all their splendor. Thl* view Is truly grand. Down in the valley I lieneath you lies an immense country in view, J dotted over with cabins ami huts surrounded by I cultivated fields, patchesof woodland.and streams I of water, with liues of fencing minting in every I direction, the whole encircled by the gradual I rising mountains. This view creates au impres sion tifM>n the memory that is uueffaccable by time And now. though reluctantly, we ranidly 1 descend the mountain and speed on to Alill I borough, where we take the sta^e for this place. Having crossed the Mill Mountain, we arrive here about 8 o'clock p. in. The springs, five In number, are situated in a valley betweeu the North and Mill mountains. The waters have great reputation for the cure of scrofula, tLrjat diseases, chronic diarrhea, 4c. The improvements consist of several brick hou ses, oue of which contains the ottlcc, parlor, a I dining room capable of dining four hundred per number of chambers above the J dining room Thers are also tome twenty cot J lajiw or raliiinas they term them here; also a large building In which there is a fine ball room, the whole built to form a circle, with an open lawn in the centre, of about thiee acre*. The company, for the past few weeks, has numbered about live hundred person*, the greater portion being so very sedate as that it is difficult at times to form a cotillion in the ball room. We have prayer meetings during the week, and preaching twice on Sundays, on which occasions the bell room is used for church purposes. Then we have the usual amount of ten-pin alleys, billiards, etc. A few days since a couple of live rattlesnakes were brought in here, they were captured in the mountains, and attracted a great deal of atten tion. The weather here for a few days past has iteeo quite cool; so we have l>een sitting by the fires morning and evening, which if it continues will soon create a stampede for home, among the sojourners here. Yours truly, Washinotosian. Toe Spanish-Mexican Question.?The latest reliable information concerning the con dition of the relations of Spain and Mexico wo believe to be embraced in the two following ex tract*?the first from tho Washington corres pondence of the Courier and Enquirer, and tho second from the New York Sun?one telling of the state of the question in Spain, and the other of its condition in England, wherein it is really to be finally solved; insomuch as Spain in these times cannot make war without England's tacit or avowed consent. * "The last news from Madrid is not favorable to a settlement of the difii'-ulties between Spain and Mexico. But it is hardly possible t^iat the dispute can proceed to the length of a war. Spain is in no condition to attack Mexico, and if she were, could not hope to re-conquer the country. She could wage hostilities in no other way than by an invasion, and it is a fact which no Spanish statesman can overlook, that the occupation of any part of the soil of Mexico by a Spanish army, would be the signal of active interference by the United Slates The latest intelligence from Mex ico clearly shows that government and people both look with conlidence to this country for aid even in anticipation of hostilities, and they are willing toassign to this Republic important privi lege*, and even a further slice of national territo ry, for a present supply of cash. " 1 continue of the"opinion which I have before expressed, that this disagreement will be settled at Home, and will result in restoring to the clergy some portion of the*privilege* of which they have been deprived by the firmness and energy of Comonfort." Thk Spanish-Mexican Question.?One of the leading London journals seems to regard the dittii'ulty lietween Spain and Mexico as threat ening disastrous consequences, and it calls on Parliament, before the session closes, to ask from Ministers a distinct statement of the steps which they have taken to prevent hostilities, froin which British commerce must sutler, and which won Id almost certainly end in a war t>etween Spain and the Unitvd States. Indeed, our English cotem porary exhibits a strong apprehension that the inordinate pride and folly of the Spanish gov ernment inay lead it Into war, which would fur nish the United States with an opportunity to seize Cuba, and extend its protection over Mexico.

They assembled in crowds, armed with'knives, revol vers and rifles, and formed into companies, pa raded the *tieets all day, threatening to shoot or hang Lane if he should make his appearance in the town. One of them had a rope about his waist, with which he threatened to banii Lane if he could catch him. Others who had rifles said they would " draw on Jim Lane at first sight." But the Free-State general did not make his ap pearance ; he drove to within a mile and a half of town, when he met some of his friends, and they prevented him from going in, audthe regulators were disappointed." One or two small rows, however, occurred, but a speech from Dr. Striugfellow had the ettect to icstore order. From Texas.?The Dallas Herald, of the 15th ult., says : "The citizens of Smith county are taking active stops to secure the Southern Pacific Railroad thiough that county. They have appointed a committee to procure donations of land and aid to the road. They are to have a grand railroad barbecue at Tyler, on the IGth of September.*' rfTp-THlS IS TO GIVK NOTICE, that from ' tins date I do not hold myself responsible for any debts, save those contracted hv mv?elf in per son.
