EVENING STAR. THI VANDERBILT HEWS. This is the title of ? sheet of which two copies have come to us, purporting to have been Issued on board the Vanderbilt during her last voyage to Europe, but wdirh were evidently printed upon her arrival. Tb? contents probably con tributed to the amusement of the passengers upon the way. We find among them the following by an American lady, more distinguished hitherto in a different art: To the lien that laid the egg the poet had for breakfast, on board the V.iuderbilt, Monday morning, Nov. 2, 1WS7.

The Convention came off yesterday, as an nounced in my letter of yesterday The num bers upon the groun?4was variously estimated from one thousand to fifteen hundred, and sotne here even estimate it at two thousand, though I think it did not exceed twelve hun dred They were mostly from Lawrence, Rig Springs. Tecuinseh. Topeka and Leavenworth, though I noticed quite a nuuil>er Iroin localities as remote as Burlingame. Emporia. Centropo lis, Ac. It was designed as a mass convention, and it was passed off very well as such. Con sidering the inclement weather and bad roads. 1 was disappointed to see so many there. As usual. Gen Lane was the principal man ager, though I>r. Robinson presided. The reso lutions re-endorsed those of the Delegate Con vention, and agreed to abide by and carry out, U? the letter, the laws which should be enacted by the Legislature about convening. I was not a hie to procure a copy of them As the procession entered Lecompton, from Lawrence, preceded by a brass band and a na tional flag, they were met by the Topeka and Tecumseh Delegation, led by martial music and a national nag. on which was inscribed, in large letters, "The old Banner, the Free Con stitution " As the two delegations met, they exchanged cheers and entered town, where, on arriving, three cheers were given for the Tope ka Constitution, three groans for the "Le eompton Swindle,'' (as they branded the Le compton Constitution) and three chcers for Got. Stanton. Gen Lane read from letters written to Gov. Stanton. showing that the Free-state party was pledged to submit no question to the peo ple rut the Lecompton Constitution ; that Got Stanton would not have convened an ex tra session session of the Legislature, but in consequence of the positive agreement to limit the legislation to that act; and that any move mentbeyond that was an act of bad faith to the Acting GoTernor. Let me say here, that this is the first pledge ever given by Lane which he ever showed any intention to fill, and in this instance I am sorry to say that his quibbling shows that he is anything else than an honest man. ? Robinson did not show a willingness to stand up to his pledge, as in fact but few of the speakers did. I think. howcTer. that they will be compelled to do so, as a majority of the Council and a large number in the House seem inclined to go slow. C. Hoaglaud.

Brown was upon the ground, and Jones wt? heard repeat edly to threaten that be would cow-hide him. but his friends led Jones repeatedly from the ground. It was well, for hundreds went there turning with a desire to wipe out old scores against Jones, and the first improper move ment on his part would have been the signal for an attack?not on him only, but on those friends who have co operated with him ia the pasf ARRIVAL* AT PRINCIPAL HOTELS BROWNS' HOTEL J (3 Reynolds.
