XA'NSAS TRIBUNE. JOHN HPEEU, Editor. LAWRENCE, APRIL 21; 1864. FOR PRESIDENT, ABRAHAM LINCOLN. LEAP TEAR. The present year, it -is well known, is bissextile or leap year. Prom time immemorial, it has been understood tho fair sex have tecuilar rriviWs dnrinir everv fourth vear. Bv common conseni ine iaci nas oeen ac-i A 1 1 A 1 I knowlcdged; but wo are very sorry to Wn M;w5!flMa l,, Lan know theso privileges have tot been know theso privileges have ot been carried as fully into effoctas they should o I be. It is universally admitted that unwritten or common law is es obligatory as that of the statute book. This will bo admitted by every one having common sense A great amount is written and spoken in these times about "women's rights. Wc arc among those who believe in acknowledging and enforcing all the rights of thc better half of thc world 'woman " n , i J thc original rights of woman under tie law giving them, one year in four, pc- .,i:. i,w.t.i abused and often ignored. It may be thc spirit of the rebellion which has affected tkis age, may have influenced the other 6cx to neglect the acknowledgment of the law. It may be our friends of tho fair sex, out of sheer modesty, havo neglected to enforce their just and righteous claims. .However it has been brought about, depend upon it, there has been a woful ignoring of this law. We ardently desire to see the origi nal law restored in all its Justness and grandeur. primitive This' law of leap year originated in Scotland, and we will go back to the old statute which is the origin of the -acknowledged rights of woman, once in lour years, t or the reason, simply, that we desiro to be specific in this matter, we quote from the law. verbatim tt lit- eratim, as follows. It is. dated A. D. 1228, reign of Queen Margaret : "It is ordonit that during ye reign of "her bless it Majestie, ilke maiden Ladee. .of both high and low estait, shall hae liberty to speak ye man she likes. Gil he refuFcs to take her to be his Wif, he shall bo mulct in ye sum of an hun- drity poundis or less, as his estait may te ; except and always gif he can make it appear that he is bcthrothittoanither woman, then he shall be tree. Hero our readers have the very law which has originated the common rule of giving tho ladies the privilege to make their own selections for husbands. This is a just law, and reasonable. We ask any man if he can raise any sensible objection to it? Three years are given, wherein young gentlemen as well as middle-aged men, can give all proper attention to tho important subject of i . - T1, selecting partners for life. If they neglect it, and willfully and obstinately persist in neglecting this . important duty, we see 'no better remedy than the law mentioned. Let us have such a law in Kansas in Lawrence, and there will soon bo a different state of domestic things. . Name Claimed. Major General Joseph Hooker claims tho name of "Lookout'' for his seven-year old battle-horse, which bore him through the perils oi tho tight above the clouds. "Look out" is a rich chcanuL stands near - sew cntoca hands high, and hasl all thedalni ty and elastic actiou 'of the most deli-oitel? fashioned colt He is three quar-t3rs bred, being by Mambrine out of a hilf-brod -tnaroj and, notwithstanding his ponderous sue, he haa trotted, under saddle, in 2Ab. He was bred in Kentucky,- and selected, when ' a five' jcar-old, for Mr. Ten Broeck, as the finest horso that could be sent to Eng land to exhibit style in a coupee. For 8OU10 reasou he was' not 'sent further eastward than ,New Tork but, .when 1 here, was seen by the Jiorse aent,ol tho tmperor of the trenchwho repeatedly offered. Jt thousand' dollarr to obtain possession of him.-It -ws at thu time that General Hooker came in eon- . . ... f , . petition with' his ' Majesty ,ranT finally succeeded in purchasing- the hor3e through the agency of this office", "Lookout" is undoubtedly the finest -charger in the army; id, in grandeur of form and action, dwarfs all other horses which approach him. Backed by his owner, who is himself a matchless rider, the people, could they but behold him moving ud Broadway, would say it was the finest equestrian statue they had ever seen. Wilkes's. Spirit of the Times. ,. A Philanthropic Dog. The Paris Patrie is the authority for the following: At one of the cates on thc Boulevards they had a dog,, which was a universal favorite, tie was ac- ' . i tn 4. fu nni nnrrxr nfi nnP n his duties was to go with a basket to the tLn ovprv morning for the bakers shop every morning ior ine baker's shop every morning for the r0s - Une morning tne mistress oi ine . . 1 . C it - same thing occurred thc next morning and the attention of the baker was call ed to the error. As the deficiency con tinued, the baker unhesitatingly assert ed that it must be the dog that stole it. A waiter was sent to follow the dog from the shop home : but thc latter, instead of returning direct took his way down a by-street, and entered a to a stable. Here he placed his basket on the ground, drew the cloth aside, and takinjr out a roll, he approached a closed kennel, from which the nose of another dog was protruding. Ilis imprisoned friend took the roll in a quiet, monstrative wav. as tnousn it were a tiling to which she was accustomed, and the dog picked up his basket and trotted home. The waiter made some inquiries of thc porter, and learned that the animal tor whose sake the aog had committed petty larceny, had had n tcrnal duties to perform towards three pups from the day when the first roll was missing. The landlady was sotiiuch interested in the matter that she would not allow the dog to be interfered with, and he continued to abstract thc roll daily till his friend was in a condition to do without it, when he resumed his ior mer probity. Hott Tecuinsch Was Killed. The Western Christian Advocate, of a late date, contains an obituary notice of Isaac Hamblin, Sr., who died at hia resmence ai, iioomneiu, nuiana, a lew monins since, ageu auuuo eiguiy-sii years. Jir. liamDim was a man 01 aeep piety and unquestionable veracity, lie was in tne Daitie 01 ine x names, ana the writer gives the following as his which Tecmnseh wa3 killed . Hq gays he was standing but a few feet from Colonel Johnson when he fell, and in full view, and saw the whole of that part of the battle. He was well acquainted with Tecumseh, having seen him before the war, and having been a prisoner seventeen days, and received many a cursing from him. He thinks that Tecumseh thought Johnson was Harrison, as he often heard the chief swear he would have Harrison's SCalD. and seemed to have a special ha tred to word him. Johnson's horse fell under him, himself 'being also deeply wounded; in the fall he lost his sword, his large pistols were empty, and he was entangled with his horse on the ground. Tecumseh had fired his rifle at him, and when he saw him fall he threw down his gun and bounded forward like a tiger sure of his prey. - Johnson had only a side pistol ready for use. He aimed at the chief over the head of the horse, and shot him near the center of his forehead. When the ball struck, it seemed to him that the Indian jumped Willi 111s iieau luii uitccu iccu mw iuc air As B00n as he struck the ground, a little Frenchman ran his bayonet into him and pinned him fast to the 1 ground. 1 - - , 1 Albert Pike, poet, orator, lawyer, rebel, Brigadier and Indian Agent, is said to be living within the Federal lines at Huntsville, south of Little llock, in a most wretched and poverty-stricken condition. The retribution of Benedict Arnold and Aaron Burr has overtaken him. During the latter portion of his career as a rebel General he was the victim of a most relentless persecution on the part of Hindman and Holmes.

At- ter advancing aDOut nve miles irom where the thirl division of his command and the niath corps were encamped, the rebels .;. made a stand, anu our line, consisting of only 2,400 in fantry, formed in a belt of woods with an open fidd in front,' and the enemy in the wods on the other side. Genera Stone of Ball's Bluff, formerly chief oi General Banks staff, was on the fiek and took direction of the movements.' Central Ransom was in favor of ad- vandng only in force, but his wish wat disregarded. After keeping up a skirmish ing icross this open field for about an hour, the enemy advanced on us in overwhelming numbers, estimated, at 10,000. General Ransom got all the available troops to the front, and opened on them. The enemy lost heavily, but advanced steadily and some of our cavalry gave vay and our ihiiiitry fell back, and in a few moments the enemj pressed us so closely, and the panic among our savairy so demoralizing, that the retreit became a rout. General Ransom cid all in his power to rally the men, but finding it impossible he made every effort to save the artillery. While endeavoring to get the Chicago Mercantile battery off safely, he was severely wounded in the leg, and Capt. C. Dickey, his a-ljutant, was instantly killed. Our loss is probably 2,000. The Mercantile Dauery losi ail us guns, uapiain vv lite is a prisoner ana iiieuten- antd Thorp and Mctfride killed. While the 4th division was fallinsr back in disorder, the third division, numbering only, 1800 men, came up and was im mediately routed. Finally the 19th army corps with 7,000 men came up and forming in line, checked the enemy and held them until we got all the trains off, except that of the cavalry. The whole army is now falling back here. where it must wait reorganization before proceeding further towards Shreve- port. - Cincinnati, April 20. A dispatch to the Commercial from Catlettsburg, Ky., 19th, says Captain Patrick. hjui arrived with over 100 prisoners, captured at the battles of Paint-ville and Half Mountain on Licking river. Hodges, rebel brigade attacked Colonel Gillespie's force at Paintville on Tuesday, but was repulsed. : Gillespie pursued the retreatingj rebels with 800 men, of the 14th and 39th Kentucky. and surprised them on the 14th inst , in camp at Half Mountain, capturing 70 prisoners, 200 horses, 400 saddles, 300 stand small arms, their camp equipage, 85 rebels killed and wounded, a large amount of stolen property recovered and returned to the citizens.

The following dispatch was received at the Navy Department this noon : - Uairo, April 19. To Hon. Gideon Wells : I have received private letters from Red river, one dated Grand Ecore, April t10th, and one dated Alexandria, 12th, stating that, the army under Gen. i Banks met with reverses . on the 8th, near Mansfield, in Western Louisiana. mUr army fell back, and on the next day the rebels attacked them and were handsomely whipped.. Loss .heavy on hnth sidp Admiral Porter, when last heard from, was about 40 miles above Grand Ecore: r. . River low. (Signed) A. M. Pennock, Fleet Captain. i New York, April 20. The Commereial's Washington dispatch says it is pretty decidedly settled :hat the National Bank bill will not some up in the Senate this week. It will be amended so aa to prevent taxation, and may establish seven per cent, is the rate of interest in the States where no legal rate exists. Eight to Sixteen. ; Lord Shaftesbury recently stated in a public meeting in London, that from personal observation he had ascertained chat of adult male criminals of that city, aearlv all had fallen into a course of crime between the oges of eight and sixteen yearsj and that of a man lived) an honest life up to twenty years of age, there were forty-nine chances in favor and only one against him, as to an honorable life thereafter. This is a fact of startling importance to fathers and mothers, and shows a fearful responsibility. Certainly a parent should secure an absolute control over the child until 16; it cannot be a difficult matter to do this, except in very rare cases, ana -it tnat control is not wisely and efficiently exercised, it must be the parents tault ; it is owing to parental neglect or remissness. Hence the real source of 98 per cent, of the crime in a country sucn as jngiana or tte United States lies at the door of the narents It is a fearful rellsction : we throw it before the minds of the fathers and mothers of our land, and there leave it to be thought of in wisdom,, remark ing only as to the early seeds of bodily disease, that they are in nearly every case sown between sundown and bed time, in absence from the family circle, in the supply of spending : money never earned bv the spender, opening the doors of confectioneries and soda foun tains, of beer, tobacco and wine-shops, of the circus, negro minstrel, the restau rant, and dance : then follow the Sun- ' ...... day excursions, the Sunday drive, with the easy transition of the company of those whose ways lead down to the gates of social, physical and moral rum.- From eicrht to sixteen !

Printers Locked Up. The printer of the London Gazette is the confidential man of the British Government, and to his care is intrusted the printing of papers that it would not be safe to risk out of doors. When the composing-room was in the cellar of the old Foreign Office in Fludyer street, at the back of the house in Downing , street,' compositors and readers were kept under lock and key when 'dixy very private and confidential documents were going through the press.
