ful in its language, it could not escape the discipline meted out in that region to all who favored Abolition. On the 14th of April, 1855, its office and materials were destroyed by a mob, and its editor constrained to flee for his life. William Phillips, a Free-State lawyer of Leavenworth, saw fit to sign the protest against the wholesale frauds whereby the election at that place was carried. A few days thereafter, he was seized by a crowd of Missouri ruffians, taken by force to Weston, Movicinity; and at length, on the recurrence of the municipal election (September 1, 1856), a large force, mainly of Missourians, took possession of the town; and, under the pretense of searching for arms, plundered and ravaged as they chose. William Phillips, a lawyer, refused to submit to their search, and stood on his defense. He killed two of his assailants, but was finally killed himself; while his brother, who aided him in his defense, had his arm shattered by a bullet. Phillips's house w

eir abettors to be rebels and parricides of the Constitution, and offered a free pardon to all who should forthwith return to their allegiance, General Gage excepted Adams and Hancock, who were outlawed, and for whom he offered a reward as arch-traitors. Immediately after the Boston massacre a monster meeting of citizens of Boston Old South meeting-house. was held in the Old South Meeting-house, and appointed a committee, consisting of Samuel Adams, John Hancock, William Molineaux, William Phillips, Joseph Warren, Joshua Henshaw. and Samuel Pemberton, to call on Lieutenant-Governor Hutchinson and demand the removal of the British troops from Boston, by presenting resolutions to that effect adopted by the meeting. Adams submitted the resolutions. The lieutenant-governor and Colonel Dalrymple were disposed to temporize. Hutchinson said he had no power to remove all the troops. Adams proved that he had, by the terms of the charter. Still the crown officers hesitated. Adams res

eds of invaders of their soil within sight, who were sacking their cabins and robbing and imprisoning their citizens, they calmly urged them not to allow the daily outrages to drive them to commence hostilities! See Conquest of Kansas, by William Phillips, p. 214. The leading military man made frequent fierce speeches; but, as the Kansas phrase is, they all fizzled out --in urging inaction. He loved to have the citizens under arms, for in tumults he was king; while the leading politicianve and the Committee.

I now quote the book of Mr. William Phillips, the most trustworthy historian of Kansas as to facts: There was an evident suspicion among the people that the negotiations had been closed too easily, and that their leaders had concealed something. Captain Brown got up to addre

The Kickapoo Rangers, a ruffianly gang of Southern desperadoes, marched out there also; a skirmish ensued; they were successfully resisted and driven back; but Captain Brown, on the following day, in returning home, was surrounded by an overwhelming force; and, at the earnest entreaty of his companions, although against his own judgment, surrendered under a promise that their persons should be safe. But the moment this was complied with, writes Mr. Phillips, whose every statement I know to be correct: The terms were violated. One young man was knocked down, and a ruffian was going to cut him with his hatchet, (the Kickapoo Rangers carried hatchets,) but was prevented by the Captain of the Company. The prisoners were taken back to Easton; but Brown was separated from them, and put in an adjoining building. A rope was purchased at the store, and was shown to the prisoners, with the intimation that they should be hanged with it. ... .
