In accordance with the request of culating notes of any bank, shall be Coast Attacks.

The folloVing is a military corres-' pondeiit's programme for attacking the rebols in their weak points along the coast, The plan looks feasible enough to civilian but perhaps a "military necessity" would pre- elude its being carried out to the full extent. We believe the Navy Department is fully aware of the vulnerability of the Southern coast, and j)lo must remember this Lawrence has already mail and stage communication with this country, thanks be to the inhabitants of the Neosho country and that they have elfocted this arrangement through their own exertions and that if we expect any more favors of a mail and stage nature, that w'e have got to perform the work ourselves, if wo co-operate with the Lawrence interest. Topeka has, already set on foot a project to same way if ho deserves to be so treated, when we have the power. We have sufficient confidence in tho patr riotism of Jim to believe ho wil' do his duty to his country and the people of Kansas, if his insanely jealous rivals will let him alone.and it is evident that be now shares the confidence of the mas of the poople of the State, of all parties and that he also possesses the esteem of President Lincoln.

Approved June 4th, 1861. SECRETARY OF Ol'TICE,) Topeka, Sept. 10th, 1801.

I hereby certify that tha above is a true copy of the original Enrolled Bill, as tiled in my office. JOHN W. ROBINSON, Secretary of State. The State Constitution provides that Tho Executive Department shall consist of a Governor, Lieut. Governor, Secretary of State, Auditsr, Treasurer Attorney General, and Superintendent of Public Instruction who shall bo chosen by tho electors of the State at the time and place of voting for members of tho LeeiKla-ture, AND SHALL HOLD THEIR OFFICES FOR THE TERM OF moio words on tho subject, and then loave the question with our readers.

It must be remembered that our the State are laboring to jdace the Capital as near tho center of the State as practicable, and to permanently settle the issue. If Topeka gets the Capital the question is set il Stato Constitution has made liberal provisions for appropriating a certain aMr- vptnc err alls deposits made with said bank, and of all. dividends and interests declared and payable upon any of the stocks, bqnds other evidences of indebtedness of suid bank, which, at the data of such statement, shall have remained unclaimed by any person persons authorized to receive the aama.for tivo years then next preceding.

4th, 1801, has preferred charges against the Kansas Brigade, now in the lipid under the command of James IT. Lane, designing to affect its reputation as an army, as well as the individual character of every man composing it: now therefore we, the undersigned officers comprising said Brigade, and without reference to the spucific charge contained in said letter of Robinson's do pronounce the whole a base and cowardly slander upon the only efficient force now in he field for the protection of Kansas and tho western frontier, and a base ingratitude to tho memory of the gallant dead of our State who have already fallen in defence of our conn-try's (lag, and that the conduct of the said Robinson since the commencement of organizing volunteer forces' in Kansas, has exhibited a record of vindictive selfishness that is without a parallel and that it is clearly evident that he would have liailod the defeat of this Brigade and the destruction of Southern Kansas by the enemy with joy, rather than a victory should have been attained by those whom he believed in the way of bis own personal ambition, and we do therefore brand the said Charles Robinson as a base slandorer, a traitor and a coward. A. CH Wholesale Drug- Store Lane and Robinson. The bitter feud betweon Lane and Robinson is now being waged more fiercely than ever.

The former made a speech in Leavenworth recently, in which he denounced Robinon and Capt. Prince, Commander at Foil Leavenworth, in the most, pointed terms, branding them as traitors, and alleging that they were endeavoring to stab him in his back and to destroy the Kansas Brigade. Lane's speech was bad enough in all conscience, but Robinson, in his reply to it through the Leavenworth Times, out-Heroded Ilcied in exhibition of meanness, littleness of sonl and want of dignity. Ha slandered the Kansas Brigade, most outragem1-ly, and even pitched into and abused the President for sustaining-Lane.

The Auditor of State shall, before entering upon tha du ually proved to be the loser. It is well known that Lawrence is far from being a central position in the State. Look at Illinois.

Vandalia was at one time considerelto be tho center of the settled portion of that State, and it was supposed that it would always retain such a position, and in accordance with such a view tho jicople of Illinois once voted to locate the Capital of that State at Vandalia, and tho State Legislature thereupon voted to erect costly State buildings at that place.

We jdace at the head of our editorial columns a State ticket, constructed by the Republican Central Committee of the State, to be considered by the people at the ballot box at our next November election. The circumstances that gave origin to this ticket will bo the best explained by reading the following petition which is said to have been signed by upwards of three thousand WOODWARD FINLEY, Have e1 1 and fine st.
