The mortgage to the Government, firj"l the bonla, are all cancelled. John 1. Pekft, President. The above dispatch was received last night by the parties addressed, and handed to us for publication. The clear and unquestionable title thus acquired by the railroad company to lbea lands, cannot fail to be most agreeable news to all parties interested. The company wilt now be prepared to lift tlieir bonds and make warrantee deeds to the lands that they have sold, whilst the perfection of the title of the company will remove all obstructions in the way of the epeedy sale of the balance of these valuable lands, and the settlement and cultivation of the old Delaware Reserve, that has been so long a blank waste in our midst. Proceeding of the netting to Organize a Grant Club, The meeting was organized by the lection of JJon.O. W. Cabcock chairman, and W. II. Hells secretary. On taking the chair, Mr. 'Babcock addressed the meeting, and presented, in an able argument, the political faith of the Republican, party, and then contrasted it with the ruinous policy advocated by the Democracy. On motion, the chair appointed the following gentlemen to report resolu tions for the consideration of the meet- , iDg: T. Dwight Thacher, M. W. Rey nolds, John Speer, L. J. Worden, O. E. Learnard," Josiah Miller, Hon. S A Riggs and Col. W. V. Roberts. During the absence of the committee, the meeting 'was entertained bv music from the Lawrence brass band. T. Dwight Thacher reported from the committee a series of resolutions, and, in obedience to a call from the assembly, addressed the meeting in a very convincing argument in support of the same. Hon. S. A. Riggs being called upon, responded in a ppeech replete with sound logic, and presented the issues before the people most, clearly and forcibly. Ool. Roberts made a few remarks on the importance of organization, when, on motion, the resolutions reported by the committee were unanimously adopted, as follows : Resolved, That we do here and now organize ourselves into a club, to be known as the Qrant Club, of Lawrence, upon the following platform : 1. We indorse the great principle of political equality and civil liberty, enunciated by Jefferson and the fathers, as the foundation of Bepublican institutions. 2. We are in favor of a loyal reconstruction of the rebel State3, and wish to see it accomplished at the earliest possible moment. 3. We indorse a loyal aud patriotic Congress in its conflict with a perfidious and lawless Executive. 4. We indorse Gens. Sheridan, Sickles, Pope and Meade for their wise and just administration in their several military districts, and for their efforts to carry out in good faith the laws of the land. 5. We indorse Gen. U. S. Grant as the representative of these principles, aa Ibe great hero of the war of the rebellion, as the chosen leader of the loyal hosts at the ballot box, no less than on the battle field, and under his lead we propose to "to fight it out on this line," until the fruits of our victories over treason, rebellion and slavery are fully secured., 6.

' . - EDITORIAL CORRESPONDENCE. Hitfonri, Teva and Country Improve ments Everywhere Euoru to Promote Immigration Saggestiona for Kansas The L., L. & 6. Railroad. x i; Columbus, Ouro, Feb; 10, 1868. Dear Tribune: We arrived here this evening, after a pleasant trip, considering the extreme cold weather. We took the accommodation train on the -Missouri Pacific, and found it a very fair route good cam and accommodating officers. ., ; Missouri towns and the country show evidence of imrrovement, and the State is recovering from the disastrous effects of the war. - ;Even Missouri, whoe previous policy has been anything bat inviting to eastern emigrants, iJ eDerging, from her "old fogy" notions, and advertisiog her great resources and natural advantages to induce emigration from all parts of the world.' Everywhere we see her advertisements of lands. They ornament the hotels in elegant type and giltframes, to attract the traveler andfindace the land speculator's visits? One of the most enterprising advertieers is the Hannibal & St. Jo.' Railroad Company. A man stands at its eastern stations, with a placard on hu hat inscribed " Land Agent Hannibal & St. Jo. Kailroad," and his hands full of bills, which he thrusts upon every traveler who has the air ota farmer or a business man. . We don't know what the State is doing on the emigration question, but certainly private enterprise is doing much, and every device is being resorted to to induce immigration to stop within Missouri's borders, and the consequence is, reviving enterprise and handsome improvements in every town, and new farms in all portions of the Slate1. These evidences should , admonish Kansas to renewed energy on the immigration question.. . A small expenditure of money to let the wrld know what out resources are, would not be extravagance, but the very essence of economy ; and our Legislature should at on!e devise wise measures to induce laborers, farmers, artizans and mechanics to visit our State. Business is dull all over the country, and men of means, and especially men of energy and industry, whose labors are better than silver or gold, are looking to the new Jar. ; far West as a land of promise. I hear more talk on railroads of emigrating to Kansas, and more inquiry about its resources and its improvements, than I ever remember to have heard before. Our new route to the seaboard, by way of the Galveston Rail- oad, is fully understood Ty intelligent railroad men ; but we heard great sur prise expressed when we told them that fine cars were running to Ottawa, and the business of grading southward to be resumed in the spring. The Ohio & Mississippi is a good route; but even upon that the weather has been so severe that connections are not always sure; and this is the reason why we are here at Columbus, to write even this poor letter. We start in a few moments by the Baltimore & Ohio, and shall drop an oc casional line to The Tribttne. j s. KANSAS LEGISLATURE. Reported by M. W. Reynolds, Otfirial Reporter ot tne senate, i Topeka, Feb. 14,1 SOS. SENATE Afternoon Session. The Senate resumed consideration of H. B. 92, an act to establish a code of criminal procedure. On the motion to amend so as to strike out the death penalty. Senator Scott paid : This debate has already extended to considerable length, and 1 am extreme ly reluctant to occupy further the time of the Senate. The session is already far spent, and the amount of work before us is more than we can possibly accomplish, 1 feel this so sensibly that, n the attempt to condense my remarks nto the smallest possible compass, I am conscious I often fail to do justice either to the subject or to myself, and in this case I should notbffer a single word, but that I feel the amendment proposed nvolves a most dangerous innovation, which should adopted without careful consideration I know many persons entertain theo retical doubts as to the propriety of cap- tal cunishment. but I did not suppose any one believes it could be practically abandoned at this time. Our State is too new. our society too unsettled to jus tify us in venturing upon an experiment which can by no means be considered a success even in the most staid and soner communities. I honor the conscientiousness and hu manity of the friends of this measure, but their sympathy for the criminal is a morbid and mistaken sympathy. It has become fashionable to consider a crimi nal in some sort a hero, the more a crini inal the greater the hero, and a vast amount ol sickly sentimentalism is expended in his behalf. But these people forget that the murdered victim of this felon is entitled to any sympathy. They forget that the wife and children, widowed and orphaned in a moment by the hand of the assassin, are entitled to any sympathy. This is all wrong justice and the unerring instincts of human nature demand that, the niur derer shall expiate his crime with his own blood; it has been so since the foundation of the world, and it always will be till the advent of the millenium. When all men everywhere act upon the precept, Do unto others as ypu would have them do to you," then we may dis pensc with capital punishment, not be fore. The scriptural argument against the death penalty is little less than rid iculous. "An eye lor an eye aud tooth fera tooth ;" but Ptell you it shall not be so now ; if a man smite vou on one cheek, turn ta him the other al so. If this is good against capital pun isnment, it is equally good against all punishment. It must be earried't its logical conclusion, ir society may not exact an eye for an eve. nor a tooth for a tooth, neither cab it'resent a blow ; if "" yuc". o oincKca, it must turn tne other. All thisis for individual christians, and not for States or commnnitiAQ Many instances of capital punishment occur in the scriptures, and not the least notaoie ot these is the' case of Ananias and fcapptnrawho were struck dead 111 a. 1 f . . ; wuuous me lorm ol a trial or a moment for preparation. Men may theorize about the5 moral effect ot different modes of punishment, auu persuaae tnemselyes that the death penalty has less terrors for offenders than imprisonment for life, but the common sense of all mankind rejects the cod elusion as preposterous and unreason able. While there is life there is hope No felon in his cell ever utterly loses the hope of ultimate deliverance ; but beyond the scaffold there , is neither pardon nor escape. . The public sentiment is noi reauyior radical a change aa this.' Tite people so expect nothing of the kind. It we ndnnt. this amendment. I know a uni versal sentence of disapprobation will come up from every district represented on this floor. If you abolish the death penalty, the people will take the laws in their own hands. If we cannot have legal executions, society will protect itself. This measure would go far to encourage the spirit of mob law, and this every good citizen must deprecate. I do not wish to detain the Senate, but I could not permit the question to pass without entering my protest against a change so dangerous, so radical and so utterly uncalled for by those who sent us here to transact the business and enact the laws of the State. The section wad not amended, the vote to abolish the death penalty being as follows: . 3 eas Abbott, Cooper, Foster, Green, Learnard; Maxson, McFarland, Rogers and Underhill 9. Xays Blakely, Clark, Dodge, Elder, Graham, Haas, Harvey, Hippie, Low, Matheny, 'Moore, Price, Scott, Sharp, Simpson and Teale 16. Pending the motion made by Messrs. Price and Veale to amend sections 332 and 336, so as to hold the county liable ror no costs in criminal cases, the Senate adjourned. Reported by H. C. Holmster, Official Reporter of the House. Topeka, Feb. 14, 1868. HOUSE Afternoon Session. Mr. Welsh presented three petitions, praying for a law declaring hedges, as soon as set, a legal fence. Mr. Smallwood presented a petition from the Agricultural, Horticultural and Mechanical Association, of Wash-inton township, Doniphan county, Kansas, praying for a law making owners of stock responsible for damage which said stock may do to crops ; also praying for the repeal of all laws now in force relating to the protection of crops by fences. The fee bill was taken up and amended, so that in counties having 15,000 inhabitants or "more,' the county treasurer shall no$ receive to exceed 2,500. The bill finally passed. Yeas 55, nays 20. An act concerning apprentices was next taken up. On motion of Mr. Click it was amended, so that in case of incapacity, desertion or habitual drunkenness of the father, the mother shall have custody of her children. The bill was passed. Yeas 70, nays 2. An act concerning mutilated, lost and destroyed bondsand warrants, was taken up and passed. Yeas 58, nays 2. An act relative to contracts and promises was passed. An act regulating conveyances of real estate was passed. The Speaker pro (em. took the chair. On motion of Mr. Lecouipte the bill was referred to the Judiciary Committee. An act to incorporate cities of the first class was taken up, pending the discussion of which the House adjourned- NIGHT SESSION. The consideration of the act to incor porate cities ot the nrst class was re sumed, and the bill passed. Yeas 65, nays 0. An act regulating the jurisdiction and procedure before justices of the peace in civil cases. Mr. Snoddy moved to strike out, in section three, $300, aud insert ?100, and argued that while here and there throughout the State might be found a justice of the peace who was capable to, and did, administer the law under this extended jurisdiction with clear heads and honest hearts, it was a fact patent to all that a large majority of the justices of the State were no more fit to exercise the functions of that office than mules and asses. Mr. Goodin opposed the amendment, believing the gentleman from Linn had justice of the peace on the brain. There should be a stepping-stone between the people and the district courts, and consider this the proper one. By giving this extended jurisdiction to justices, it has had the effect to bring into the office men of higher capacity and more brilliant intellect, and the improvement will continue to be more marked in the fu ture, if this provision be allowed to re mam. But if it is desirable to retain ignorance iu this office, let us return to the old limitation of $100. Mr. Snoddy Tt is better to have 'justice of the peace on the brain," than to have one under your thumb. I have a desire to keep that court as I would everv otner-eourt pure, ine courts of this State are not perfect, by a lon ways, and there should be a court be tween the justices and the district courts and this extended jurisdiction takes from us the justices' court, and does not give U3 in its stead an intervening court between them and the district courts The question is one of policy in admin istering the law. 11 the laws can be properly executed with this extended jurisdiction, it is policy to extend it. If not, it is against good policy to extend it. It is argued that this extended ju risdiction will give these courts respect ability. I don't see how that can be Respectability does not grow out of the law. We can't legislate respectability in a court : it comes of itself. I object to it because it increases legislation, rath er than diminishes it. Mr. Johnson, of Jefferson, opposed the amendment. Increasing the juris diction does increase the character and resnectabilitv of the court. The more extended the jurisdiction of any court. the higher its standard ot respectability the world over. The motion of Mr. Snoddy was lost and rendinir the further consideration of the bill the House adjourned. Topeka, Feb. 15, 1868 . SENATE Morninc) Session.

BY TELEUfiAPU. THE PRESIDENT VS. (JEN. GRANT. A. J.'s Last Move to Snub Grant. Sherman will not Accept the new coinnmnu. Action to be taken by Congress. Interesting News Concerning tlte Finances. The Revolution in Hayti beeoni Ing General. From Washington. Washington, Feb. 14. Orders have been issued appointing Gen. Sheridan temporary commander of military divi sion of Missouri, vice Gen. Sherman, transferred to the new division of the Atlantic. St. Louis, Feb 15. The Republi cans Washington correspondent says the resolution ot inquiry as to the Pres idents power to create a new military division, of which Mr. Wilson gave no tice in the Senate to-day, is based on the assertion in Republican circles, that under the existing laws the President cannot create any such division, and that no power but Congress can do so lhe Presidents object in creating a new division is to issue his orders for the execution of the reconstruction laws, through Gen. Sherman. It said that Attorney General Stanberry wilt give an opinion asserting that the provisions of the existing law requiring aii orders to be issued through Genera Grant relate only to orders concerning the government and movement of troops, and do not affect reconstruction The Democrat's Washington dispatch speaking of the President's nomination of Sherman to be General by brevet says the developments of to-day make it perfectly plain that this appointment Dy tne rresiaent is intended to create trouble. Mr. Johnson's first purpose is evidently to snub Grant, by giving another officer the title given him by a special act of Congress. His second purpose, is believed, by many carefu observers, to be to reduce Grant to a subordinate position in some way if he can use ftnerman. . borne persons seem to think that, if Sherman was assigned to duty according to brevet rank, the President might transmit orders fhrou him ; and he would certainly try to make him his military adviser, and thus annoy Grant. It was stated last night that Gen. Sherman's friends promptly ueuieu mat ue was a party to this I'res idential tricK. it can now be adde that he was telegraphed here, sayin" in woras mat no great credit to his head and heart, that the nomination was not of his seeking, and that he is content with the honors he has already received irom the iiepuDiic New York, Feb. 15 The Tribune's YV aslungton dispatch states that Lieut Gen. Sherman has telegraphed to some of his friends in Washington and other places lhat he does not wish: to come here, and that he does not believe the President can legally create a new mill tary division. . He is so determined on this point, that he refers to the alterna. tive ot resignation, ana will so act if ordered to accept the post: Lieut. Gen Sherman has telegraphed to his brother to have the Military Committee refuse to sanction the. appointment, and th Senator will present a bill denying the authority oi tne rresiaent to make the proposed change. This action on the part of Lieut. Gen. Sherman creates a great deal of talk. The Worlds Washington disnateh says the friends of the President expect !! . a" l a 1 ne win remove ftianiou ana appoint an other member of the Cabinet ad interim to perform the duties. If ! is thought :hat this course will involve only a ...saceful judicial question.' The in sub ..rdinate Dosition of Gen. Grant inward the President ia also mentioned aa a i . . cause for his immediate arrest and trial before a court martial. . The chances of McCIcllan's nomination as minister to England are improving- The Herald's dispatch says General Clay is said to have tendered his resignation as Minister to Russia. It may be further added, that Senator Sherman will strongly oppose the confirmation of brevet, and it is not in the least doubted that he acts iu accordance with his brother's wishes in the matter. There are abundant reasons for sayin that Gen. Sherman does not want to be put on duty-here.; He has more than once protested against such an arrangement, and those who are in a position to know his views are very confident that he wilUrenew his protest. The complication produced by the President in making this appointment and assignment, is looked upon by the leading public men as of a gross character, and from the well known fact that Generals Sherman and Grant are on terms of the most intimate friendship, and that the former will never consent to being pitted against the latter, it is regarded as within the bounds of possibility that Gen. Sherman may be forced iuto the throwing up of his commission in the army.' Gen. J. B. Steedman has resigned the collectorship of internal revenue in New Orleans, to take effect May 15th. RepiMiean Rally ta Jackson County, Ho. Kansas City, Feb. 15. A mass convention of the Radicals of Jackson county, of which Major D. C. Turchell, of Kansas City, was chairman, and Col. J. P. St. John, of Independence, was secretary, was held at Independence today, for the purpose of organizing for the coming campaign, and electing delegates to the State Convention to be held at Jefferson City, on the 22d inst. A full delegation was elected. The convention was spirited and enthusiastic, and contained many of the best men of the county. Though not specifically in structed, a large maioritv, it not all the delegates, were strongly in favor of the nomination of Gen. TJ. S. Grant. From Louisiana. New Orleans, Feb. 14. The con vention yesterday adopted a resolution asking for the appointment of General Mower to command the 5th Military District, in case of Gen. Hancock's re moval, which was to-day amended so as to read Gen. Sheridan, instead of Gen. Mower. The Financial Question in Congress. Washington, Feb. 15. It is gen erally understood that the Ways and Means Committee will bring in a meas ure increasing the volume ol currency at least fifty millions. Several bills and resolutions were ol- fered in the House, chiefly by Western members, looking to an mcrease ol paper currency, and were referred to the Ways and Means Committee, but have not received speedy attention on account of the committee's anxiety to perfect the tax bill. The pressure being brought to bear upon the committee, especially from the West by Western members, in favor ol an increase in the volume of paper money circulation, is so great that the matter cannot be much onger delayed. It is known that a ma jority of the committee favor such ac tion, both as a financial and political measure, and it is claimed that when reported it will pass the House by a decided vote. Representatives from the West say their constituents demand it, and that it is absolutely necessary -to their business prosperity. In such a measure the Democrats and Republicans will vote together, and many Eastern men are also counted upon ; so that the contractionists will not have enough strength to resist it. Revolution In Hayti. Havana, Feb. 1:. Advices are re ceived from nayti, stating that the rev olution in the south part of the island had become general. Salomon, present minister to the European courts, was proclaimed President in place of Sal- nave. All the principal towns were inJ arms against me uovernment aim ine authority of Salnave. Fourteen camels, raised in Texas, have arrived at Indianola, to be shipped to JNew lork and placed in the Central 1 ark in that city. Some years ago, it will be remembered, a lot of camels were imported by the War Deoartment for use in the transportation of supplies across the desert regions of New Mexi co ; and the lot above referred to came from that stock, having been raised at Camp Verde, Texas. A young gentleman in Buffalo, New York, ha3 fallen heir to a fortune, be queathed to him by his former landlady because he did not find fault with her victuals. The case is the only one o the kind on record in Buffalo, and it is believed that the people in Buffalo do not expect that anything of the kind will ever occur in that city again. A correspondent of a Pittsburg pa per says that it is becoming the "thing' at weddings in New York for all the gentlemen present to kiss the bride, and ail the iadies to kiss the groom. He does not stale whether the new practice has had any influence in increasing the number of weddings. Negrophobia has reached such pitch among the Democratic members of the Ohio Legislature, that one of them it is said, will shortly introduce a bill to strike out the colored sailor from the boat in Powell's painting of Perry's Vic 1 he lady proprietors of the li evolution in New York, have employed Mad arne Demorest to fit out a squad of little Irish gins iu tne reman colors, and send them into the street selling the "woman's paper."
