came up to the Convention with a manl
iest determination to overthrow the To
peka Constitution, and break up the Free
State organization. At lirst they were
loud and bitter in their opposition to the
Constitution, and seemed very eouliileui
ot the success of their infamous schemes ;
but Jong before the organization of tin*
Convention, it became very manifest that
thij faction was largely in the minority.
Col J. 11. Lane, who seems to possess
almost unlimited influence over the Free
Estate people of Kansas, made a speech in
the evening, before the meeting of the
Convention, i;i which he set forth in an
Unmistakable light, the importance and
the necessity of maintaining the Free
State organization under the Topeka Con
stitution ; and set forth in the most glar
ing colors, the corruption and wickedness
ot the sor<?alled Democracy, and the utter
folly of abandoning our organization in
obedience to its wishes, it was clearly
shown that such an abandonment would
be playing into the hands of the Slavery
propaganda, and un open confession that
all our labors for the last two years pa.t
iVere wrong, and those who had fallen in
the struggle must be branded as felons.
It was clear as the light of day, that our
only hope of political salvation, lies in
stauding firmly by our present State or
ganization, which is the greatest obstacle
tn the way of the llogus Constitution,
about to be framed. Some thought that
we had better drop fhe Topeka Constitu
tion. and seize the Territorial Legislature
jiu October; but a very Ijttie reflection
| would suffice to convince any honest mind
that such a course would be the height
ot folly,
The Territorial Legislature will not
i meet until January, and could the Free
j State organization be gotten out of the
•way, the ijogus Constitution could then
be put through on the fast line, admitted
by Congress, and a State Government
put into operation, before the Territorial
Legislature would meet, and tliu* we
would be left to hold an ympty sack like
a set of fools. Rut it is our purpose to
perfect our Staff* organization, and then
take possession of the Territorial Legisla.
tuie in October: Jet it meet, and pass an
act, repealing every act ever passed by it,
adjourn sine die and let the State gov*
eminent go into operation t once, it is
now a matter of little internet to us wheth
er the Rugus Constitution is received by
Congress or not. A State government
can never be organized under it. Kan

Fnder the scathing eloquence of I.anc
and other, the opposition, soon b.-gait to i
give way, and bciore the close of the Con
vention. they came forward and avowed
their devotion to the Topeka Constitution
and government, and their willingness to
•Uund by it to the death. The greatest
enthusiasm prevailed throughout, ami the
Convention closed in much harmony.—
The resolutions adopted are as lofty in
tone and sentiment as anything wuich j
has appeared since the days of *7i>. A
resolution was unanimously adopted, in
structing Col, Lano to organize a milita
ry force throughout the Territory to pro
tect the ballot-box in October, It is tin*
purpose of the Free State men to vote at
that election without any foreign inter
ference. or die in the attempt. I'poti a
very close vote of KO to SI, Marcus I.
Parrot, of Leavenworth City, was nomi
nated for Congress, over Mayor Adams,
of the same place.
Nothing but the intense interest which i
every one teels in our cause, could have
induced any one to remain at Topeka
'through the Convention. A very unu-j
sua! drought has prevailed for some time
pasi, and during the past week, the,
\yeathcr has been almost intolerably hot.

we left there a day or two singe, he was

SLAVERY IN KANSAS.
Lett'r from Senator Mason, of 177-
• j t/tnia.
Winchester. Vs., July 22d, ISO7.
To the Eilitor of the " South ':
; Dear sir: In your paper of Monday
. last in an article headed " Walker's
: Usurpation," I observe the following par
agraph :
i| Rut we are told that Hunter and !
. Mason, and other distinguished South
, ern Senators, in the d* bate on the Nebras
ka-Kansas bill, expressed the same opin
i iom-that Kansas must be a free state,' Ac.
I cannot undertake to say what opin
ions may have been expressed by my |
. honored colleague, or by other Senators
. from the South, in reference to the prob
able condition of Kansas; though, from a
general knowledge of their views in re
gard to that territory, I should not doubt
that any opinions so expressed would
havtj reference to circumstances and eou
tingsmcea necessarily qualifying theui.
To avoid misconstruction, however, I
think it propr to *ny that I never ex
pre*tf*rd the opinion thus ascribed to me ;
because I never entertained it. At the
time the law passed organizing the ter
ritorial government, there were few with
whom I conversed who did uot believe
that the future state would take its place
with those recognising and cherishing the
condition of African slavery. There was
at that time, certainly, every reason to,
believe win this should b.- so, and none
why it should not. The state of .Mis
souri, bordering its eastern frontier, was
a xltiveliolding state, holding at that time,
noarlv an hundred thousand slaves, and
these were chiefly held in the border
counties.
The saate of Arkansas, adjacent to the
territory on the souih, was likewise a
slaveholdiug state. The soil and climate
el Kansas were adapted to those valuable
products, chiefly hemp and tobacco, which
gave value to slave labor iu Missouri, i
The proximity of its population, with the
attractions of new, fertile nnd cheap laud,
1 beloved would lead the slave holders in
Missouri to difluse themselves speedilv
over Kansas, and the prohibitory line of
bti dU being obliterated, them was no
, reason why they should not. I had no (
fear of fair competition in such appropri- ,
• ation of the new territory from any quar- 1
ter. Unfair competition I did not look \
to.
What may be the result as to the con- *
uitioii of Kansas, notwithstanding ;he
extraordinary and unscrupulous efforts o!
Northern Abolitionists to force a popula
tion there, 1 cannot undertake to say. t
Nor will 1 allude in this plaeatothe new
and unexpected an pout now exhibited of "
affairs in that territory, with so much *
propriety reprehended iu the columns of
the •• South.'' "Whatever may be the 5
information of others, I certainly am not
sufficiently informed of the existing state *
of things in Kansas to form a clear opin- j
iou one way or the other ; yet I will ven
| ture to say this much, that if African 1
slavery be ultimatoly excluded from Kan-j ,
<as, it will be efleeted by the numerical J
force of organized majorities,, operating ;
against the usual laws which govern em- |
igration: and will present a new and i
most instructive lesson to the Southern i (
States,

Senator Alas on on Slavery In
Kansas.
We ask attention to the letter of one
of the ablest of Southern Senators, to be
found iu an another column.
| This letter convicts all the northern
; supporters of the repeal of the Missouri
Compromise with duplicity or stupid
blindness. It says the general expecta
tion of those supporting the Dill was, that
it would enable Slavery to spread over
Kansas; and he gives unanswerable rea
sons for this belief.
This letter makes another very iinpor
tant admission which we commend to the
_
Lycoming Gazette and its associates ; and
that is, if slavery is kept out of Kansas it
will be by the organized emigration of
freemen passing into tha Territory in such
force as to counteract the legitimate work
ing of the repeal bill. This fact will soon
be apparent to every person who is willing
to look tiie truth iu the face.
When our people reflect that Senators
Mason, Toombs, and others of the same
stamp control the national administration,
they will And in this letter the key to
Walker's Proclamation against Lawrence,
and his sudden change of tactics.
The slaveholders require the whole
power of the Government to be wielded
for the purpose of carrying out the object
of the bill repealing the Missouri Com
promise—and they require this to be
done openly and undoubtedly. lienor
the proclamation against Lawrence, and
the marching of troops to prevent the
people of that city from regulating their :
local affairs in their own way. The hypo
critical talk about popular Sovereignty!
has answered its purpose. It has secured
a tool of the Slave Power for President,
and now they require all such talk to be
repudiated. Men who were honest in
their declarations for freedom in Kansas,
will no longer support such an adminis
tration.
