Tba Union contains a letter from the Chiaf Justice of Kansas Territory, explanatory of the acts of outrage and brutality of the Tope kaites against peaceable settlers, and calls on Congress to put a stop to such doings in the Territory by admitting it as a State into the Union with as little delay as possible. The editor, in his comments, forcibly illustrates the impropriety of the position occupied by the few nominal Democrats who are virtually aid ing and abetting the perpetration of such acts by opposing the Kausa^ policy ot President Buchanan. The Tfitflliiffiicrr Is devoted to news to-day. fi-7- The paper* announce a fire at Marion, Al abama. which destroyed a whole block, Includ ing the Perrr House. printing and law office*, driiv. book and merchant*' store*. The loss Is about kan?a? News. Through the St Louis paper* we have news from Lecompton, Lansa*, up to the 16th instant. The telegraph ha* announced the adjournment of the Legislature, but the day of adjournment 1* not mentioned: it probably adjourned on the 17th Its action may be Hummed up as follows : The repeal of the law by which the Constitu tional Convention at l.ecompton was created ; the enactment of a militia law which was vetoed by Acting Governor Stanton and passed over his veto; provision for the submission of the Le ronipton Constitution to a vote of the people on the 4th of January, USB, approved by Stanton ; a law to punish election frauds, also approved. The Constitution will be submitted to the peo ple In three forms: First. Constitution with slavery; second. Constitution without slavery: third, ayainst the Constitution. The day fixed for taking the vote?the 4th of January?la the ume as that designated by the I?ecompton Con stitution for holding a State election, when a governor, {secretary of State, auditor of State, State treasurer, members of the Legislature, and a member of Congress will be chosen The lat ter will be held by the officers designated by the president of the late Convention ; the other, under the Territorial authority. The militia law repeals all the laws on the same subject heretofore enacted. A board of offi cers is created, consisting of one major general, eight brigadier generals, one adjutant, one in spector, one quartermaster, one commissary and one surgeon general, all elected by the Legisla ture "Phe Governor of the Territory is a mem ber of the board, and nominally commander-in chief This t>oard has the whole su(>eriuteiid enoe of the m: lit la. and a majority of Us member* can call it out in any emergency, and act inde pendent of the commander-in-chief The veto of Governor Stanton otter* several objo tious, the principal one t#ing that the law was in direct conflict with the organic act of^the Territorial government. Lane was cht?sen major general. The St. Louis Republican of Friday says: "A gentleman arrived in this city ye-trday evening, who left Leavenworth city on Monday last at II o'clock t'p to that time the contest was proceeding quietly, but. as the election was by ballot, nothing was known of the character of the vote. There was a good deal of excitement, but no disorder of any kind- We hope it may have been *0 throughout the Teiritory." The Missouri Republican gives the following account of the murder of Mr. Lathitn. at Doni phan : Sir The following is the statement of a gen tleman from Kickapoo, who affirms it to be a true and unbiassed account: McVay, who shot Lathim at Doniphan, had selected a claim within six or eight miles of At chison. This claim he had improved to the amount of two or three thousaud dollars He had worked hard, and greatly increased it in value About the IGth. Lathim, who is said to be an insolent and unruly man, one of Jim Lane's old body-guard, appeared upon McVay's claim, arid in the language, there used, '? jumped it." He deeply exasperated McVay. who is a man of very excitable temperament, and high and fierce pas?ioii* McVay felt himself insulted and in jured, and well knowing there was little author ity thereabout to interpose in his behalf, he took his gun, went to Doniphan, and shot Lathim iu the ?tr?rt It was altogether a claim light? party feeling bsd nothing to do with it?but be cause McVay was pro-s!aveiy and Lathim fier State, ttje fie?-dom sbriekers wish, no doubt, to make poll11, al capital out of it Of the < ause of the trouble at Fort Scott, the St. Louis Republican of the '2-id of December says : By the cars last uight we received information f:em I ort Leavenwoith to the lf?th instant On the previous day Gen Harney ordered two com panies of tioops. under command of Capt Stur gis. to proceed, by forced marches, lo Fort tkoll, toqueli disturbances which had Hfofcenout Iheif. It seems that H?> Black Republicans had collect ed with a view to obtain possession of ceitain records in tl.e charge of the C!erk of the County, being nothing el?e than indictments against some ?f fhe number, and it was reported that tiuee per sons had been killed The telegraph furnishes the following addi tional intelligence : St Lot is. Ue?-.*j|?The Missonrians are said to 1* assembled in -trong force along the border, and more fighting is apprel.euded. The territorial executive committee has issued a call for reassembling of the Delegate Conven tion. held at l^twrence on the '2d instant, to take place on the ild, for the purpose of considering the be-?t ?ourse to pursue iu consequence of the legislature having failed to submit the Topeka (Oiistitut,on along with the l*ecomptou consti tution, to a vote of the people. <"i*< l>-c 'ij ?The G.izette has advices fro in Kansas to the 17th. The Legislature had passed '? an act repealing an act entitled an ar t to provide for taking a census and election for dele gate* to a convention," over the veto of Governor Stanton. In the House, tl.e vote stood 29 to 1; in the den ate, the vate for it was unanimous. ( A rumor that both Messrs Walker and Stanton have been removed by the President,was received from Lexington 011 the 17th, and had lieen gener ally accredited at Lecompton through the day. It Las caused little excitement, almost every one *a\ ing, " Just as I expected " The Gazette'* correspondent adds: The Presi den> s message was not received at l<e?-omptoii until to-nl^ht. Gov Stanton immediately had that portion of it relating to Kansas afi'airs printed and circulated in the Legislature. During a re cess of the Hause a meeting was organized and it was read aloud. It elicited hisses. groans, and Uiauy expressions of ridicule. PERSONAL. .... Hon Henry W Hilliard of Alat>ama, is at Brown's Hotel. ....Philip 8.

The Chairmanship or the Senate's Tkr ritorial Committee?Jiary of o?r seuthern and other democratio ootemporaries are ?pecu lating over the fact that Se??ior I>o?glaj has been re-elected to the Chrfrmanshlp of the Senate Committee on TerriUfial Alairs, ?ot withstanding hit avewed Mrtagonis* lo the po sition of the Democratic majority of the Senate upon the great Territorial question that now divides parties in this country. A word of explanation in this connection may not be amiss Thus we have to say that the Demo cratic Senatorial caucus nominating Sena tor Douglas for the chairmanship of their o^mmittee. took place before the delivery of bia speech of the Vth inst., wherein he tx>k occasion first to take ground definitely against the Kansas policy of President Buchan an and the Democracy. Up to th* delivery of that speech, his friends were protesting that he would be found acting, as ever before, in entire affiliation with the Democratic party Though great doubts were entertained by bis fellow Democratic Senators as to his probable course, all realized that to refuse, upon a mere suspi cion, to accord to him his old place on the com. mittee, would appear to the country as though the Democracy of the Senate had taken especial piins to go out of their way to strike an unde served blow at him. To have ?' shelved" him under such circumstances, would have been such a blow. Yet the Democracy of the Senate were not caught napping in this matter. Though they were careful not to invite the hostility of Mr. Douglas to the Democratic party?to justify hisjsubsequent tergiversation, in advance, ass it were?yet anticipating that the then notorious uncertainty with reference to his future course on the Kansas question, might result in his be coming an ally of the Republican part^r. they took due care to give him for fellow committee men a working majority of sound and able Democratic Senators. An inspection of the list of the Senate's Territorial Committee which we published some time since, will satisfy the most skeptical of the truth of this statement. While the l>bmocratic majority of the Senate saved its reputation for courtesy and evinced its indisposition to do aught manifesting its want of respect for and confidence in Senator Douglas in advance of an overt act of hostility to the policy of the Democratic party ou his part, it took due care, as we explain above, that its due consideration of what Senator Douglas had a right to expect from the Democ racy under the circumstances, should not work any harm to the future of the party The New House Hall?Our friends of the distant press, having expended their ire upon the determination of the House to consign them to the portions of the gallery of their new Hall, now known as the reporters' quarters, each, in a letter levelled at the Hall as an entirety, it may not be amiss for us to say that, with very few exceptions indeed, even they hare come to the conclusion shared in by all others here, that for all the legitimate purposes of legisla tion. the new Hall is as much superior to the old one as light to darkness. Its accoustic properties are inconceivably fine. In or over any part of it, every member speaking in oratorical tones can be heard distinctly The iuduccments of the old Hall for members to be temporarily out of their proper places are all of them absent in the new one; and, indeed, all on the floor are so under the eyes of all constantly, as that a hundred causes conspiring in the old ball to delay the prompt transaction of the legitimate business of their sessions, are now obviated We have watched the sittings of the House daily since the winter of 1R42-3, know its rules of order thoroughly, its methods and model, and what have be?n the drawbacks to its proper and prompt transaction of business Many a time and oft have we essayed to draw the attention of honorable Members, through the Star, to them. The maleonstruction of the old Hal!, however, has always proved more potent than our pen editorial?and we have consequently cried out against them in vain. We have now. however, every reason to hope that the advantages gained in the plan of the new Hall will at once cure most of the evils ; showing that they are not, as we once irnag ined. the result of chronic propensities of hon orable Members of Congress, ax much as of the circumstances of locality by which they weie surrounded. So far the amount ot actual bus iness transacted in the new Hall and the gene ral desire of members?as all see and all hear everything going on distinctly?to push legiti mately ahead in business style, has really as tonished the veteran members of the press sit ting over the House. All things argue well in this connection for a more thorough business session than baa occurred in ten years past. The advantages referred to above can hardly tail to result in the saving of millions on mil lions to the United States Treasury The Instructions to Acting Governor Denver.?Among the documents bearing on Kansas affairs, recently sent to the Senate by the President, in answer to a call for informa tion by resolution, wc find th? following cap ital instructions, under which Acting Governor Denver is now conducting the nffuirs of his new office They are the theme of unstinted praise among all public men in Washington not allied in their feelings with the To|*eka Consti tution politician.- of the Territory : Dkpartmkm o? Xtatk. ) XVasminotoH, Drtrinlirr II, lfv>7 ( Jaw* W I)r ##r?r, S*rr< tnry and Acting Uovcr aoro/ K"n*n? T'tritory Si a : You have already brr# inform* d that Mr. SUnton has been removed from ttie office of Sec retary of the Territory of Kaio-as, and that you have l?een appointed in his place I desire now to state to yon distinctly the reason of tblschange. The ('(invention which met at l.ecompton on the 1st of Septemljer. had f amed a Constitution, and had authorized its President to submit the question to the people on the 21st of Decemlier, who are to deride whether this Constitution should l>e adopted without slavery. The Impor tance of the issue could not well be questioned It Involved the complete and authoritative settle m*i t of the only subject of difference which bad seriously agitated Kansas or interfered with its prixjifMlv The qualified electors, therefore, to whom this settlement wax referred, were unques tionably ri-.'ht to attend the polls and give their votes on the day appointed ; they wete lequired to do so by the highest considerations of public duty In the exercise of this right, moreover, they were entitled to an adequate protection by the Territoiial Government, and the Acting Gov ernor w is Ixuind to employ all the le^al means at his < niiuiiaisi to give semritv and fairness to the election With the conflicting opinions which prevailed in the Territory on the question sub mitted ki? had nc right to interfere. They had their appropriate issue at the ballot box, aud to that peaceful arbitrament they might safely lie referred The grea! ohjeets to be accomplished, in the opinion of the President, were to preserve the peace of the Territory, and secure the free dom of election. r.iitertaiuing these views, he was surprised to learn that the Secretary and Acting Governor had. on the l*t of Ibrember, issued a proclamation for a special session of the Territorial Legislature on the ?th inst , only a few weeks in advance of the regular time of meeting, and only fourteen day* liefore a decision was to be made on Ibequestion submitted, by the Convention. This coursc of Mr Stanton, the President seriously believes has thrown a new element of discord among the excited people tn Kims is. and it is directly at war therefore with the peaceful policy of the Administration. For this reason he has felt It his duty to remove him Krom these views you wiU readily understand what the Pie?ident regards as the chief doty which devolves upon you as Mr. Htanton'a suc cessor. This duty Is to preserve the peace of Kansas. Kvery tierson entitled to a vote on the <'on?titutlon ought to have safe access to the |h>IIs and l>e fiee from any restraints whatever, tn the exerclt* of the elective franchise. If the civil power is found InsuScieut for this purpose, the troops of the I'nited Mates should be employed in aid of it, and it may be wise precaution tn have them stationed, in advance, within reach of those places where, ia your judgment, their ser vires are likely to be required. It to earnestly hoped that the use of military power may be j wholly avoided Violence fa always less likely lo occur when the means are known to lie at hand far its prompt anppression Should the military farce become aWlutely necessary, to keep the peace, von will find full Instructions with refer ee to theprofM* node of employing it, in mr eeiiimuaicatloae fa Governor Walker, of March fWh, JelyHStb. and September '2d, IH57, and in tbow buTjiii ilnaMf written to Mr. Stanton. Of fje*? last, that Of November JlOth was take# to ?an?* by you, and vou bad a copy of It. All of them will dontitWaa be found in the archives of the Governor, ?t Lenompton; they refer promt* nently to the preservation of the peace at certain important elections But I need hardly inform ?011 that your duty ie not Intended to be confined > these special urcaaiona; It extends, of course, to the protection of all the citizens In the exercise of their just rights, and applies to one legal elec tion. as well aa another. The Territorial l.egla lature doubtless convened on the 7th instant. and while it remains in session its memtiers are enti tled to besemreand free In their deliberations Its rightful action must also be respected. Should It authorixe an election by the people, for anv purpose, tbis election should be held without interruption, no less than those authorized by the Convention. While the peace of the Territory is preserved, and the freedom of election secured, there need be no fear of disastrous consequence* The public journals contain reports ot an in* tended movement, by a portion of the residents or Kansas, to organize a Revolutionary Govern ment, under the Topeka Constitution It is hard ly possible that this report can be well founded but should the attempt be made and lead to a practical collision with the Territorial antbori ties, the authority of the Government must ne cessarily be maintained, and f.om whatever quarter it lis attempted to interfere by violence with the election authorized by the Constitution al Convention, or which may be authorized by the Legislature, the attempt must lie resisted and the security of the election maintained. The peaceable progress of these elections can obvi ously occasion no injury to any citizen of any party, because their results can only have their due weight under the Constitution and the laws. It is to be expected, therefore, that no good citi zen will endeavor to interfere with them, but that all the |>eople will lie contented to see the woik of the Convention peacefully carried out to its legitimate results, and fairly presented to the consideration of Congress The President relies upon your firmness and discretion to yive effect to these instructions. It is vitally impor tant that the |M<ople of Kansas should have the full deteriiiinatioit of the question now before them for decision It is iui|>ortaiit also that in securing to them the protection to which they are entitled. <;reat care should be taken not to or ganize any illegal authority On this point I atrain refer you to my instructions to Governor Walker and Secretary Stanton, which you will regard as directed to yourself It is proper to add that no action of the Territorial Legislature, about to meet, can interfere with the elections of the Vlst of Deceruiier and the "ifiih of January in the mode and manner prescribed by the Consti tutional Convention. 1 am. sir, respectfully, your obedient scivant. Lewis Cits.' | The Retirx or the Fimbistek Walker, has spread consternation in the camp of the filibusters here. The filibuster council in this city is composed of gentlemen of character and deserved position in society, against whom naught can be alleged except that their ideas of right and wrong in dealing with weak neigh boring nations, are baaed upon the fillibuster s code of morals and propriety. They are per sons of talonts. and cultivate an extensive ac quaintance with the hundreds hero who are connected with the distant press, through whom they get before the public nearly all the just ifications of Walker's career that have been published. They are the real authors of the published inueadoes against the integrity of the President's course upon filibustering no signally refuted in the aunual Message, and quite as emphatically set at rest by the prompt and efficient action of Commodore Paulding in rescuing the property?steamships?of Ameri can citizens which Walker had seized in Nica ragua. and sending him to the United States to answer for hia last violation of the law of this land. An effort ia, doubtless, to be made at once from this point to create the impression that the South, in and out of Congress, is boiling over with indignation because Commodore Paulding has so signally vindicated the integ rity of the purpose of this Government in its dealings with weak and unoffending neighbor ing nations ; which has no foundation in fact. As, here and at the North, a certain alass of per sons in large citics are sympathisers with the filibusters, and wherever there are such persons, the fast press of coarse express their sen timents The New Orleans Dtlta and Mobile Tribune, for instance, are examples of the latter, which, upon the smallest possible amount of capital in the way of the sympathy of citi zens engaged in legitimate industrial callings, make noise enough to seem to represent the opinion of empires of men Such howling as we shull have from them over Walker's forced return was never yet heard. In the mean time the course of the Government of the Uni ted States on this subject will continue to meet the emphatic approval of the country at large, as in all thing" else since James Buchannn be came the President of the United States. I>R Chas.

Ira revealed enough to show that others were concerned in the murder, and partly promised to give the names of the persons this morning. At this point the independent police stepped in and blocked the game, or in other words took possession of the prisoners and excluded the reg ular city police, who had managed the matter so far. from further participation But for this interference the whole facts reiatin" to this murder would have been made public ere this.
