Walker's Letter of Rcsignatiom*
THE STOLEH JÍOTE.
If X RETIRED ATTORNEY.
Except that he indulged too freely in the
use of the intoxicating cap, John Wallace
was an honest,high-minded and exemplary
in^n. His one great fault hung like a dark
shadow over his many virtues. He meant
well and when he was sober he did well.
He was a hatter by trade, and by his
industry and thrift had acquired money
enough to buy the bouse in which he lived.
He bad purchased it several years before
for three thousand dallara, paying one
thousand down, and securing the ba.ance
*y. a morgage to the seller.
The mortgage was almost due at the
time when the circumstances made me ac-
Íuainted with the affairs of the family,
lut Wallace was ready for the day; he had
saved the money—there seemed no possi
bifity of an accident.
I was well acquainted with W allace,
having done some little collecting and
drawn np some legal documents for him.
One day bis daughter Annie came to
my office in great distress, declaring that
her father was ruined, and that they should
be tsrned out of the house in which they

by tLe entrance of Wallace. He looked

to accumulate in his little business. The

"You told Biyce so?"
441 did ; h« laughed, and showed me the
note with his signature crossed over with

44 It is plain, Mr. Wallace, that he paid
you the money as he alleges, or he has ob
tained fraudulent possession of the note,
and intends to cheat you out of the amoutit.'
"He never paid me," replied Wallace,
"Then he has fraudulently obtained the
note. What sort of a person is Chandler

am ture he wouldn't!" repeated
" How else could Bryce obtain the note,
but through him! What time does he
come in at night!"
41 Always at tea time. He neve goes
out of an evening," answered Wallace.
44 But father he did not come home until
ten O'clock the night before you went to
Bryce's. He had tostay at hom -*<r post
tj,¿ of that sort.
"iSow did he get in !"
" He had a night key."
u I must see Chandler," said I.
44 No harm in seeing bim," added he.
441 will go for him."
In a few minutes he returned with the
young man. Chandler, in the conversation
I had with him, manifested a very lively
interest in the solution of the mystery and
proffered himself ready to do anything to
forward my views.
" What time did you return to the house
•on Tuesday night ?" I asked, with the in-
tention of sounding him a little.
44 About twelve."
44 Twelve! It was not more than ten,"
oato Auuie. ' I
44 The clock struck twelve as I turned the
corner of the street!" replied Chandler,
441 certainly heard some one in the front
room at ten," added Annie, looking as
tonishment at the group around her.
44 We are getting at something," I said.
44 How did you get in, Mr. Chandler?"
The young man smiled as he glanced at
"On arriving at the door, I found I had
lost my night key. At that moment a
watchman happening-along, I told him my
situation. He knew me, and taking a lad
der from an unfinished bouse opposite,
placed it against one of the second story
windows, and I entered in that way."
44 Good! now who was it that was heard
in the parlor at ten, unless it was Bryce or
one of hfc accomplices? He.must have
taken the key out of your pocket, Mr.
Chandler, and stole the note from the sec-
retary. At any rate I will charge him
with the crime—let what may, happen
Perhaps be may confess when he fines him-
self hard pushed."
Acting upon this thought, I wroté a
lawyer's letter—4demand against yoir,' dtc.
—which was immediately sent to Brycé. I
then cautioned the parties not to 6peak of
the affair, and dismissed theiú.
" Well, sir, what have you against me!"
he asked, rather gruffly.
" A claim on the part of John Wallace
for two thousand dollars," said I poking
over my papers, and appearing indifferent.
"Paid it," said he as short as pie-crust.
" Have you?" and I looked him in tbe

44 Nevertheless, if, within one hour, you
do not pay the two thousand dollars, and

It was a bold charge, and if he had
looked like an honest man I should not
have dared to make it.
" I have paid tbe note, I tell you; and I
have the not6 in my possession !" said he.
44 Where did you get it? "
" Why, of course when I paid it—" •
44 When you feloniously entered the
house of John Wallace, ou the night of
Tuesday, February 20th, at ten o'clock,
and took the said note from the secretary.'
"You have no proof," stammered he,
grasping a chair for support.
44 That is my lookout. I have no time
to waste, will you pay or go to jail ?"
He saw that the evidence I had was too
strong for his denial, and be immediately
drew his check on the sppt for twentyrone
hundred dollars—after begging me not to
mention the affair, he sneaked off.
I cashed the check, and hastened to Mr.
Wallace's house. The reader may judg<*
with what satisfaction he received it, and
how rejoiced was Annie and her lover.
Wallace insisten that I should tiik^ the
hundred dollars for my service; hut I was
magnanimous enough to take only twenty.
Wallace kept his promise, and ever after
was a temperate ¿ man. He died a few
years ago, leaving a handsome property to

tween him and Annie having taken place

To Planters.—The Gonzales Inquirer
makes the following remarks, to which we
invite the attention of our farmers :
We learn that some of our farmers in-
tend planting their next crop of corn with
up-country or sack corn seed. This, we
have been assured upon good authority—
men who have tried it themselves and seen
it tried—will not do. They say that corn
planted from seed raised in a northern
climate will not fully mature in our climate
tbe first Jtf JT—-that it will taRSftl wh<m
«talk is not more than three feet high, and
that the ear will not fully develop itself.
This being the case, would it not be well
for our farmers to procure and plant none
other than seed raised at home ? Northern
raised corn, like everything else, we sup-
pose, must undergo acclimation; and as
there will be a demand for all that can be
raised in the county this year, we think
ourfarmers should he on the safe side.
Gopher vs. Rat.—It is an old saying " that
there's no great loss without some small gain,'"
which is generally verified. A farmer in Alame-
da county, California, had a liberal supply of
rats upon his premises, which «-ere guilty of their
usual fecundity, and were anything but welcome
sojourners. But the gophers having lately inva
ded his grounds, the rats had to give wav, and
now no trace of a rat is to be found. His boys
have an amusing way of catching gophers by a
«tring, on the end of which is a noise, which they
place care utly around the hole, and when a
gepher's head appears above the ground, th
string is pulled, and he finds himself captured-
Having secured one in this way, the bqys place
him before a large rat hole in the bam, and al-
'oweahim to go in prospecting, still retaining
hold oJ the string, when he soon caused a com-
motion inside, and out ran no less than five large
rats, one after the other, nnd were quickly des-
patched by the boys.—Pr/tirie Farmer.
Place a b ne in the earth, near the 1 root of a
grape, and tíié vine will send out a leading roat
directly to the bone. In its passage, it will put

root will entirelycover it with the most delicate
fibres, like lt.ee, eich one seeking a pore of the
bone. On this bote, the vine will continue to
feed as long as any nutriment remains to be ex-
hausted.— Farmer ' Cabinet.
Labor.—All the true honor or happiness
there is in this world follows labor. Were
it not for working men, there could be no
progress in either science or art. Work-
ing men are earth's true nihility. Those
who live without work are &U paupers.

Honorable Lewis Cass,
Secretary of State:
I resign tbe office of Governor of Kansas.
I have been most reluctantly forced to this
conclusion after anxious find careful con-
siderations of my duty to tbe country, to
the people of Kansas, to tbe President of
the United States, and tp myself. The
grounds assumed by the President in his
late message to Congress, and in his recent
instructions in connection with the events
transpiring here and in Kansas, admonish
me that, as Governor of that Territory, it
will no longer be in my power to preserve
peace or promote the public welfare. At
the earnest solicitation of the President,
after repeated refusals, the last being in
writing, I finally accepted this office upon
bis letter showing the dangers and difficul-
ties of the Kansas question and the neces-
sity of my undertaking tbe task of its
Under these circumstances, notwiüw
standing the great sacrifice to me personally,
politically and pecuniarily, I felt lhat'l
could no more refuse such call from my
country, through her Chief Magistrate,
than a soldier in battle, who is ordered to
command a forlorn hope. I accepted,:
however, qn the express condition that Í
should advocate the submission of the Con-
stitution to a vote of the people fqr ratifi-
cation or rejection. These views were
clearly understood by the President and all
his Cabinet. They were distinctly set
forth in my letter of acceptance of this
office on tbe 26th of March last, and reit-
erated in my inaugural address on the 27lh
of May last, as follows: " Indeed I can't
doubt that the Convention, after having
passed a State Constitution, will submit it
for ratification or rejection by a majority of
the bona fide resident settlers of Kansas."
With these views well known by the
President and ^Cabinet, and approved by
them, I accepted the appointment of Gov-
ernor of Kansas. My instructions from the
President, through the Secretary of State,
under date of the 13th March last, sustain
the regular Legislature of the Territory in
assembling a Convention to form a Con-
stitution, and they express the opinion of
the President that when such a Constitu-
tion ftharll be submitted to the people of
the Territory, they must be protected in
their right of voting for or against thtt
instrument. The fair expression of popular
will must not be interrupted by fraud or
violence. I repeat, then, as my. clear
conviction, that, unless the , Convention
should submit the Constitution to the votes
of the actual resident settlers of Kansas,
and the election shall be fairly and justly
conducted, the .Constitution will be, and
ought to be rejected by Congress. ,
The inaugural most distinctly asserted
that it was not tbe question of slavery
merely, which I believed to be of little
practical importance then, in its application
to Kansas, but the entire Constitution,
which should be submitted for ratification
After quoting from tbe President's inau-
gura1, Governor Walker refers as follows to
his course as Governor of Kansas, and its
'• The power and responsibility being
devolved exclusively upon me by tbe Pres-
ident, of using the Federal army in Kansas
to suppress insurrection, the alternative was
distinctly presented to me, by questions
propounded at Topeka, of arresting revo-
lution by the slaughter of the people, or of
preventing it, together with that of civil
war, which must have extended throughout
the Union. My solemn assurance was then
given that the right of the people to frame
their owp government, so far as my power
extended, should be maintained ; and but
for this assurance, it is a conceded fact
that the Topeka State Government, then
assembled in legislative session, would have
been put into immediate and actual opera-
tion, and that a sanguinary collision with
the Federal army may have ensued, ex-
tending, it is feared, throughout Lhe Union.
Indeed, the whole idea of an inaugural
address originated in the alarming intelli-
gence which had reached. Washington City
of perilous and incipient rebellion in Kan-
sas. This insurrection was rendered more
formidable on my reaching the Territory
by the near approach of the assembling of
the revolutionary State Legislature, and the
very numerous mass conventions by which
it was sustained.
" Iu truth, I had to choose between ar-
resting that insurrection by whatever cost
of American blood by the Federal army,
or to prevent the terrible catastrophe (as I
did) by my pledges to the people of the
exertion of all my power to obtain a fair
election by the vote of the people for rati-
fication or rejection. My inaugural and
other addresses were, therefore, really in
the nature of proclamations, so often issued
by Presidents and Governors with a view
to prevent, as they did in this case, civil
war and insurrection. Now. by my oath
of office, I was sworn to support the Con-
stitution of the United States, which I
have shown, in my judgment, required the
subtui&úon of tbe Constitution to tb%f yote
of the people. I was sworn, also, io take
care that the E^ansasrNebraska bill should
be faithfully executed, which bill, ia mj
judgment, as heretofore stated, required
that the Constitution b« submitted to a'
vote of the people, and Í was. therefore
only performing my solemn duty u Go ver*
nor of the Territory, to whose people my
first obligations were due.,. I. endeavored
to secure them these resulta. The idea,
entertained by some, that I should see the
Federal Constitution and the I£ansas-Ne*
braslca TH',1 overthrown and disregarded#
and that by playing the part of a mute in
a pantomime of ruin, 1 should acquiesce,
by my silence, in such a result, especially
where such acquiesce involved, as an imme-
diate consequence,« disastrous and most
sanguinary civil war, seems to be mosf
preposterous. Not a drop of blood haa
been shed by tbe Federal troops in Kansas
during my administration, but insurrections
throughout tbe country were alone pre-
vented by the course pursued by me on
those occasions, and' the whole people,!
abandoning revolutionary violence, were^
induced by me to g'o, foj the first time, into,
a general and peaceful election., Those
important. results constitute a .sufficient
consolation for all the unjust assaults made
upon me on this subject." I do not ,under-:
stand that these assaults have ever received
the slightest countenance from the Presi-
dent. On the contrary, his message clearly
indicates an approval of my course up to
the present most unfortunate difference
about the so-called Lecompton Constitu-
tion. Inasmuch, however, as the difference:
is upon a vital question, involving practical
results and new instructions, it is certainly
more respectful to the 'President on noy,
part to resign the office of Governor and
give him an opportunity of filling it as< ia
right under the Constitution with one who
concurs, rather than go to Kansas and
force him to remove me by disobedience to
his instructions. In my judgment it would,
be incompatible with proper respect for the
C.hief Magistrate of the Union, inconsistent
with the rules of moral .rectitude or pro-,
priety, and could' be , adopted with no
advantage to the rights of the people.
