    The present indications are, that
the Free State men of Kansas will not
participate in the vote to be taken on the
2let of December, upon the Slavery clause
of Lecompton Constitution.
That election is to be managed by crea
tures to be appointed by Surveyor General
Calhoun, and the returns are to bo receiv
ed, counted, and declared by him. In
view of the known character of Calhoun,
it is probably of litrie consequence to the
result whether the Free State men vote or
not. The Jyhnson county ami McGee

Having excused and defended the bru

an ally of Border Ruffianism to get down
as low as that.
Wif~The Buchanan press has taken the
anti-Bank fever again. Gentlemen, your
party have now, and have generally had,
the control of the legislation of Pennsyl
vania. If you mean anything, by your
talk against Bank bills, you will speedi
ly drive all Bank paper out of existence.
Heretofore you have induced the Whig
party to hold you when you got into one
of these fits. We hope no one will now
do so foolish a thing. Let us see the
era of gold and ailver currency inaugu
rated at once.
IsaT We ask the attention of the Farm

is strange that while the counties east and
west of us have their annual Exhibitions

people of this county should treat this
important subject with such apathy. Let
there be a good turn-out on Tuesday even
ing of Court week to hear Mr. Johnson,
and let the people take hold as if they
nieaut to work; then, nobody need doubt,
the result.
We are told that beside the speech of
Mr. Johnson of Warren, the proceedings
will be otherwise interesting, so let there
be a grand rally.

KjfThe Philadelphia /Vess, (Forney's
paper) is still pouring the hot shot into
the Bofder Ruffian Constitution for Kan
sas. It is sustained in its course by the
Harrisbi+rg Union , Pittsburg Post, War

presume by others that we have not seen.
Should the Press sUfid firm, we shall
hope to see "popular sovereignty" yet
honestly applied to Kansas affairs. But

j the Bankers of that seat of the money
"The feeling here in favor of a thor

' Popular Sovereignty,
It is somewhat significant, that the par.
ty which repealed the Missouri Compro
mise uuder the head of vindicating the
doctrine of popular sovereignty, should at
the same time have engaged iu a systew
-1 atic and National plan for acquiring pow
er by fraudulent, returns, and illegal voting
, Every body now knows that the first elec-,
1 tion in Kansas was carried by Missourians)
j and yet the party which was shouting for
popular sovereignty, insisted 011 sustaining
! this fraud. But to come nearer home,)
The same party, because the vote in Shar- j
on Township was not polled at au aban
doned School House, but iu the new one ■
for the same district, deprived a member
uf assembly of his seat, and put in his
' stead a man, who had been discarded by I
"popular sovereignty" and the legal vote.
• ! Wc are led to imike these remarks at
this time, by the perusal qf a petition to
the Court of Coramonpleas of Lancaster,
county, which alledgcs that William Cr T
pentcr secured his election to the office of
(Prothonotary by illegal votes, and they!
1 specify as follows :
; " Your petitioners complain of this re
turn, and reprint to your honor*, that
on the said election Peter Martin received
a majority of all the legal vote* thrown in
this count v for the office of l'rothonoury
—that in the several wards of Eanyaster•
citv illegal votes, to the number of one
hundred and mere, were thrown for Wil-j
Ua m Carpenter, thereby altering the re
♦ sult, and causing him to bo reUfu*d as
elected, when in fact Peter Martin was
elected. Your petitioners proceed to spec
ify some of those illegal votes, and thev
represent to your Honors that in the
South east ward of said city Jacob P
Kline, Ilcnry Simon, George Free. John
Bverly, Ilcnry Rohrer, Emanuel Moiupt,
• David Petermau, John Bruunon, Cyans

B iwman, Charges Dern, Michael f 4 int, Ja
cob Borter, George Bycrly and forty others,
being illegal voters, did then and there
vote for William Carpenter tor the said
office of Prothonotary."
As this matter is to undergo a judicial
investigation, wo shall await the decision
of tlie Court before expressing an opinion -
but we fay now, that the stupendous
frauds committed, and attempted to be
committed by that party in Kansas at
every election ever held there—with those
committed in Philadelphia last year as
appears from the investigation into the
vote for District Attorney —-show that the
party leaders have no regard for the purity
of t'nc ballot box; and that they are will
ing to secure office and power by any
means, no matter how corrupt,
flnclianat;'* Work in kanvas.
The following pithv sentence from the
Tribune's Washington Correspondence,
gives a faithful picture of what " popular
sovereignty" means in Kansas, and of
Buchanan's agency thereiu :
11 A strong conviction is felt hero that
the crafty hand of Gov. Walker is visible
in the work of tho Coqftitutionnl Conven
tion of Kansas. Some of his most inti
mate New-York friends inado that declara
tion to-day, and there are other ear-marks
which strengthen the proof. If the in
' strutnent received in Washington be
really that adopted by the Convention—
and it is authoritatively accepted as such
—then it is very clear thai the whole
Kansas battle has to be fought ovoragaiu.
To preclude the people from voting upon
every part of the proposed Constitution,
hut a Slavery clause, is a direct violation
of the professed principle of the Nebraska
bill, beside being an outrage upon popu
lar rights which aggravates all the wrongs
heretofore suffered in that Territory. No
mode of escape is offered. No alternative
is possible. Vote or not vote, the
Constitution must be crammed down
the throats of the majority, by a
piece of chicanery the most insulting and
audacious yet divised bv a desperate min
. ority. Does anybody believe that even
the moderate men who have counseled
forbearance, who have stood between tho
two extremes, seeking a fair adjustment
of the difficulty, will submit to an impos
ture so monstrous as this?"
A Hopeful Change.
It gives us great pleasure to note a
disposition among the Northern Buchan
an press, to sustain Governor Walker in
rejecting the Oxford fraud. We clip the
following from the last Lycominy (J<i
zctie, and lay it before our readers with
great pleasure:
"At the late elnction in Kansas the evi
dences of fraud in the returns from Ox
ford precinct, Johnson county, where so
palpable that Gov. Walker rejected them
entirely. This makes a difference in the
Territorial Legislature of three Couucil
' meu and eight Representatives in favor
of the Free .>iate party. By this act Gov.
Walker has again showu, in the most em
phatic manner, that whatever is done in
Kansas must be done fairly. Had he
been in the place of Reeder, when the
first election was held there, it is probable
there never would have been any ground
for the Black Republicans to raise the cry
of "bleeding Kansas," lie would have
annulled the whole fraudulent vote at
once, instead of first sanctioning it, and
afterwards denouncing what he at first
gave countenance. The Governor's ae
i tion in the Oxford affair will ba apt to
give a quietus to all attempts at fraud in
Kansas elections hereafter, and to Kan
sas political capital, All good citizens
will rejoice that he has had the wisdom
and courage to stop it where he did."
There is no mistake in* that !a*t sen
tence. All <jw)(i oitizons io ill rojoiue that
! the Oxford fraud is not to be allowed to
overthrow the will of tho people of Kan.
ras, and we rejoice that the Gazette, Press,
and other papers of that party, have at
last sustained a Governor in Kansas, when
j he sot himself against the deviltry of the
j Herder Ruffians. If they had taken that
step three years ago, much trouble uud
crime would have been avoided, It is
true enough that Reeder committed a
great blunder iu giving oirtificateg based
on fraudulent returns, just as Walker
committed a great blunder in allowing the
Border Ruffians to gerrymander the Ter
ritory, so as to make it possible to control
the entire Territory by fraud at one or ttco
But when Iteedcr discovered his error,
, and undertook to remedy the ewil so far
;as he could, if the Gazette and its party
at the North had stood by him and sus
tained him, aa they sustain Governor
Walker, they would have prevented all
the crime and misery that since marked j
1 the track of the administration in Kansas j
We protest, therefore against the above
Utimaqly attack on Ex-G >v. Reeder. His
ignominious dismissal from office the
| ° \
moment he showed a purpose to put a j
stop to the frauds of the Boader Ruffians,
with the approb.itioa of the Gazette and
it* friends, was injury sufficient. Com
mon) decency should preveut any member
of that party from ever mentioning the
name of Reeder, unless to ask his pardon
and forgiveness for the gross injustice of
. abandoning him at a time when he most
, deserved their support.
Tlie Kaunas IS.Jgu* Constitu
tional Convention.
Our readers are aware that a body call
ins itself the Constitutional Convention
of Kanius, has been for sometime con
' cocting a plan by which Slavery may
forced into that Territory, So conscious
was this budy and the President, that
it was a usurpation, that a force of near.
:ly 1000 United States troops guarded it
from the people. Did such a thing ever
occur before in the history of'the United
States, A Convention framing a Con
stitution for the people, so oditma and
1 hateful that it required the army to pro
tect it Jrorti insult and destruction, and
this uudcr the cry of securing popular
• Sovereignty.
Emboldened by the protection of tha
' army, these Kansas usurpers have adopt
ed a Constitution for Kansas, which can
uot be changed until 18(51, and tli°n onft
by a tico-thirds vote of the Legislature.
1 But even then "no alteration shall be
made to affect the right of property in
the ownership of slaves." So it will be
. .seen, if a majority in Congress can be
' chilled into sanctioning this usurpation,
' Slavery will be fastened on the new State
in defiance of the wishes of nine-tenths
, of the people.
; But in addition to this, the Conven
■ tion have superceded Governor Walker,
1 and established a Government of its own,
j as the following sections will show :
T ' BEC, 8, This Constitution shall be
.'submitted to the Congress of the United
j I States at its next ensuing session, aud as
, soon as official information has been re-
ceivcd that it is approved by the same,
, by the admission of the Mtate of Kansas
, of the Soverign States of the United
4 States, the President of this Convention
[ shall isuc his proclamation, to convene
the State Legislature at the seat of Gov
j eminent, within thirty days after its pub-
I lication. Sholud any vacancy occur by
j ; death, resignation or otherwise, in the;
t Legislature or other office, he shall order
an election to tili such vacancy; Provid
ied, however, in case of refusal, absence
or disability of the President of this Con

imposed on him, the President pro tern,

1 disability of the President pro tem., a

this Convention or a majority of them
shall discharge tlie duties required of tho
i President of this Convention.
Before the Constitution is submitted,

- which shall preside three judges, to be

J.ike all sensible editors, he has given
an account of what he saw and heard;
and the following sketch from his pen
while in Chicago, deserves to travel all
over the Union. Better likenesses are
seldom drawn.
"Who has not heard of "Long JOHN
' WENTWORTII ?" Wc picked him out
fir-st time trying among the attendants at
Mr. PATTERSON'S church. He occupied
the seat right across the aisle from us —
and we couM not help thinking "there
sits a curiosity in a double sense
"Long JOHN WENTWORTII" about whom
we had heard so much, and—-a mayor
uttending church '. There is yet hope
for all the world. "Long JOHN" is at
present Mayor of Chicago. He used to
belong to the "unwashed, unsanctified
Democracy," .as Parson Brownlow calls
them, but of late years he has acted with
the Republicans. Since he quit the
Democratic party and left his old associ
ates, he has greatly improved in appear
ance, as well as in his habits, fr.>m what
we are able to gather of his history. lie
is what a not too precise person would
call an "overgrown lubber." He is de
scribed as formerly having been slouchv,
j not over cleanly, not addicted to church
going, and possessed of about as much
piety as is usually found among sham
Democratic politicians. But if this was
' his former condition, lie has changed
wonderfully, and we were not a little grat
ified to see him joining in the devotions
j and sitting in the sanctuary "clothed and
in his right uiind." Republicanism bo
gettcth cleanliness —"cleanliness is akin
to"—something better. It exercises a
purifying and sanctifying influence over
those who are won over from the ranks
{of the enemy, and most generally effects
a complete moral as well as political re
generation. About as good away as any
to reach and convert the followers ufttM
tho strange gods of modern Democracy,
is to instil Republicanism into them, and
tle other graces foilow as naturally as
contentment follows an honest, industri
ous life. WENTYVOUTH is quite a giant
in physical proportions—a man of indom
itable energy and wonderful firmness and
in dependence. Decision is written on
every lineament of his face. lie is not
very popular us a mayor, simply because
any man who (ills that office in a large
city, and undertakes to do his duty, can
not be popular. The fact that he is un
popular i.s about the best evidence one
need require of his official integrity. He
is undoubtedly more desirous of adminis
tering the government so as to vindicate
the law and promote good order, than for
the purpose of winning the golden opin
ions of those who flatter rulers that wink
at crime and suffer the laws to be violated
with impunity. There is not a criminal
