The intense effort and anxiety of a protraatcd otrafgle bad thrown a lassitude over the Conven? tion and its members. The subject at issue once deteiuiioed, it w as difficult to keep the delegates together, or to keep them at work. <?ily a few, whose acute perceptions of their own suitableness for the task kept them at work, toiled at tha fag cud of what Father JkOoe, the Cbap'ain would have atyled their "useful and graceful labors." The night, outside of the ball, was dark I a wending my way up for the closing night session, ?o iaapetetrable was the gloom that nothing short of the luminous body I was approaching could have enabled me to reach tbe place in safety. The twinkling lights of the grog-shops were only beacons to mark the rocks and shoals whore mariy a mortal craft had foundered. As I passed s >me thirty yards from one of these, 1 heard the noise of a rcgu'ar battle?oaths, threats, blows and fin/ally a crush, which I stibffquently ascertained was the demolition td* a chair over the head of one of the belligerents. Not deeming it my particular province ti Inquire wb? ther the damage bad been inflicted ou the occipi tJs bregmatis, or t?e lnmbdoidal suture, 1 went by, tike the Pharisee, on the other side, bearinc some? body jell befoie 1 f*A out of ear-shot: 111 in a Southern lights man, by (J?d ' " " I'll stand up for the right* of tbe South ' " \S henever I met a group, it was a croup of drunken, or partially intoxicated men, and the sound of profanity was the only indication that humanity was in the darkness. The hall was not verj brilliantly lit up. It is a filain room td some twenty-five by forty feet, ptr ially tilled with tables covered with black cotton velvet?in niouruiug, 1 aippooe, for the demise of Snpular representative government. The hall ozen candles in the room gave a dim Rgbtj like the acetic of a badly managed magic lantern. Some of tbe honorable members sat, and some o! them stood, and some marched about. Most of the Hitter- tl td their feet projected up, some of tboffl at an angle of forty-five degrees, while, from lit incoim ler tbk number, wreaths Of towfifOO inaohe were grace? fully up. Astheui^'ht wore on, several members itlwfafced themselves on the top* of the tables, like Mb thai bad not found lav or. It became clearly evident tbat the majority cf those pie-cut bad f teile M MM to " something to drink," and not a few, by their rather eccentric " walk and conversation,'' indi? cated that they must bate been the recent participants in a spiritual circle. At onetime, a resolution was olieml to increase the pay of their eflieial reporter, and, on a motion to lay it on the table, the President announced the question thus: " Tbe question is to la) the reporter on the table." poor reporter was accordingly thus dealt with, but, as they had already voted h u? $1,-M> with tKit aftiaiofi ? e?nMti\nm ,,f t\iliitln,|( the task tor which he bad U eu aaTjadoiiai, koeould lie there romplaceiitly. The Committee to ?trinr? the ('.>n ?tirotion together made a few very radical amend? ment*, such as making the S hoo! Township I'm,! n MMeVhtWO1 one for the State. On the final passage td the whole of tins iMOaki instrument, only 8H aftriiiative \oU's could be tttoitsoil And thus it was the Constitution of tbe mioorityof a Conveution. while the speakers of that Convention, bj their own debates, admitted that the delegate* were ele< ted bt one tiftli or one seventh of the people. Among the rioting scenes, were the usual coinpli inentary rese'luti- n- and apoicnns. Among th-so tbe remarks t f the Presnleut wt re aa signilicaat of tbe cbaravb-r < I lhi? t ouveiitiou as Hat] ?rero amisaiog. He said: " Th\* Conventi' r met nodi r tbe ni"?t<tntWr? circ njtj stances.

No wonder the President fomplimented them for their rxouM ss in persevering under circumstances so "embarrassing." Ihe > ice-President, or Presi deot pro tern., did cot rise to cotnpl'ineut theiu or bimself, but to give assurances in the mutt eoteann tones, before hi- God," lor the pun't of his in ? tives, and that he had not been bought nor cor? rupted.

Tbere are rumors Haiti? is a^cutto leave the Territory, and tha1. he will rever rtturo; that he has acomphsh-d all he cuna Ibr in securing a Slave State t 'onstitut.on in reality while it is so arranged that he and his compeers can prefect! that the People have adopted it. Oa the olher hand, several Free St itc bjmbj conCd-atly expect that he *) ill convene a special session of tbe Territorial Legislature, in order that this high? handed scheme, wlich threatens the public pe, -. may be arrested in a constitutional way. We shall toon fee. The Pro-Slavery men Lave already hfjun the.r mtrigues for this dodge ele-tVi. Some of tb* st r(.r ge st n?en they have will tale the ttump, not oo nmrh to make eeevertass to he an apparent expla? nation of tbe k'ud of ejection tbey *iil have. A Free-State Convention wul no* be celled to determine what action it io belt to take in view of these elections. There bee been some ex< it>?nient ihe par. week abeut pegro-burite. Several <Jaya ago, s?.rr.* r m paijiee of drafcfK.rii went up wit. a civil e.flicer te Topeka. seeking runaway negroes fron M aaouri. A ?.:.r party bad been op there a week before on tbe same errand, and bad considerably outraged n? pu'ar sentiment by their violent mode of searching be um *. On this latter occasion, the civil officer re? ferred to was our o'd friend Butcher, ex-SheritF of Douglas County, who received the e.ffi'C ?f Deputy Marshal fr< m the g.*??l Democratic function iry sent here by Buchanan. Mr. Butcher, true to his in? stincts, led a company of drat >ons up to Topeka in his necrr -Lnrttir j (perations. Having conceived it to be necessary to the eueeees of bis mission, ke left pert of his military force, sod. taking six dra gf^'Ds. proceeded to the house of Mr. Ritchie Offtt it place, arx] there demanded admittance Mr. Ritchie, having an idea of squatter sovereignty of his own, threatened to shoot any one who n. gbt venture to come in Upon tbis. the irfleYetigsbie Butcher went after the remainder of bis dragoons, and prtx-eeded to force open the door and make gbod a search of the premises. No re^ro was found, however, there or elsewhere, and bootless and negroless the " Demo-retic " party went the way it came. Upon the whole, I think it will be better for the elegant Butcher and his cotemporanes to con? duct these " Democratic'' proceedings in a milder form, unless tbey want to get into trouble. A consie'rrhbie amount ef feeliDg b exhibited by the Free-State men at the result of tbe IV-Si r.ery Lecunpton Convention. A feeling of rage is toe most common. At Topeka, when the citizen* got intelJiirerce of what was done, some of them openly talked tigbt. The Free-State men bad b>en t*rn porarily lulled into security by supposing that they had in tbe late struggle settled tbe matter. You ii.ay imagine their feelings, then, when tbey see the fruits of tie October election thin jeopanlei, and their impudent enemy stepping in to rob tiiem even yet of their richte. Cold, bleak weather has set in. Yesterday, a slight mow fell. Kansas River is very lowj it is alreadj frozen up toward its sources. Building is still carried en brisk'y in Lawrence, and a eonsid erable amount of business is done. The commer oial difficulties do not seem lo ?feel business ma? terially. Prices of everathing are high?MOi hiebe r than at this season last year. Provisions are likely to be dear this Winte r. Tbe Missouri R.ver navigation will probably dose in a few weeks. There is not much doing in real estate or town speculations, although prices are nearly tbe aame. I io not be uneasy about the runor* w hich tell you that Oct. Walker and Secretary StanNn are likelv to he murdered by Border Ruffians. They are per? fectly safe, in that quarter at least. I also think that the Low line about Gov. Walker on the* part of fire-eaters elsewhere, is merely a part of the same sehe me to cover up the iniquity of this ConstHu ti' nal rn< vement. I orseive tiiat some of the Eastern Democratic journals take up and cireoJate a report tint armed men came from Nebraska at the October election and voted the Free-State ticket. This was like a g-oed many of tbe ftories that the defenders of Kan? sas Derrocraoy get up. The story was a very slujiid one. By refefriugto the results, its absurdity will be-seen. The thren counties bonleriog on Ne? braska tare Brown, N'einaha and Mai*b?ll. In Bre.wn. only some'." I votes were cast in all?not one third of w hat the oanty could have polled. In Ne maha, only !/?">, oue-third of which are Pro-Slavery. In neither county was the lull vote out In fact, there weie only some two or three precincts opened in both of tbcm, consequently many votes were loot In Marshall County, the result shows 961 Pr - Slave ry vote- to ore Free-Stab*. Now, in wbi )h of the-se couDtieg did the "three or four hundred armed men from Nebraska" vote I About tbe Mar? shall County veito I bave learned, what I at first suspected, that the I'ree-8tate men at the Black Vcrniiliein and nnotber precinct threw between two and three hundred votes. AtMirshall, where there arc not twenty voters, a vote of 2? if) was m ide up and returned, ard, as the r<>uoty officials got bold of th'j returns from the other precincts, they suppressed them. _ THE MORMON REBE!
