"lbe Convention then adjourned till the afternoon, to re ceive tbe report of the committee. SITKSNOON SKHSION. On the re assembling oi tbe Convention this afternoon, tbc Committee on Resolutions reported tbe following:? Resolved, That the federal administration, instead of pro tecting Kansas, In h great upholder of the oppressions and outrages which she antlers. Resolved, That the attempt to force slavery upon Kansas must, at whatever cost, be defeated; and that, too, whether the federal government shall or ahall not couUimu to favor the nefarious attempt. Resolved, Tlmt the Kansas bill just passed the Senate is de ceptive and fraudulent; inasmuch aa it sustains the validity of the government imposed upon the people by an armed lava alon, and leaves the great wrongs of Kansas unre dressed? with liberty crushed out, ner prominent me i imprisoned or hunted na fugitives on false an 1 ridiculous charges, lite mass of the bona fi'U settlers, subdued, plundered, disheartened, and many of them driven out? the national thoroughfares blockaded by an armed force aguinst all the free Mate emigrants ? and that the passage therefore ofthe bill into an act of Dougresa would be adding mockery to wrong, and make of Kansas a slave State. Tbe fourth resolution exhorts the free Htate men of Kansas not lo despair of seeing Kansas a free State. The liftn resolution pledges to increased exertion until Kan khh is made a place lor free men, free speech, and a fro press. The sixth resolution resolves that the State constitution of Kansas is the work of a clear majority of the people ot' th Territory, und that as the States of Maine, Vermont, Ken lucky, lows, Florid*. Tennessee, Arkansas. Michigan, and California were admitted into the Union with constitutions formed simply by the spontaneous action of the peopl* in primary assemblies, ana that as the States of Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana were all ad mitted wltli legs than a Congressional ratio of popu lation, snd tliat ss tbe Kansas bill hits abandoned sll objections on the score of population, no good reason can be urged why wrongs shall not be ao far redressed, her criminal invaders rebuked, and the existing dangerous agita lion be quieted, by her instant admission Into the Union. Resolved, That however long or stern may be the struggle agsinst tbe slave power, yet, knowing that our cause is intrin sically jusi, still assured of the sympathy aud aid of Almighty God, our hope in ultimate success cau never falter. The resolutions wero adopted after a long debate, on various motions to effect Statu organizations. A motion by Gkrhitt Smith, recommending the General Committee to appoint Eli Thayer its general agent to su perintend tbe formation of a Stato Committee, was offered as a substitute for all others. Mr, Wiutmsn, of Lawrence, K. T., objected to the use of any name as general agent. There was, he said, a particular objection to the use of Mr. Thayer's name. It wan well known that a prejudice existed throughout the States ot the Uulon against the Emigrant Aid Company with which Mr. Thayer Is particularly identified. Mr. Tiuykr warmly defended the New England Emi grant Aid Society. He said that Mr. Sumner had no bad opinion ofthe society, which was bound to live, whatever I opinioi the gentleman might have of it. To its exertions were due tbe establishment of the frco State party in Kiinas. He bad himself received applications from Ken tucky and Virginia to plant tho colonies of tbe society in those States. Democrats bad been glad to be members of that society, until President Pierce issued bis edict against it. A motion to lay the resolution on the table was lost? 15 to 17; alter which the resolution was adopted. A collection was then taken up, aud Gerritt Smith con tributed $1,500 a month during the war ? filling up a check on tbe State Bank of Albany for the Qrst month's instalment. Mr Whitman, K T., moved that a fcind of tM,COO be raised, to lie loaned in sums not excg^HV'feU.U, to settlers in Kansas, to enable them lo sedtrc their pre emption claims at once. Governor Rkkiikh entirely approved of the suggestion for loaning money to settlers, to enable them to pay for land, but thought tbat it would answer the purpost to recommend the subject to the notice of capitalists in va rious allies, who would find such investments pruiluble ones. He moved an amendment to that effect, which was carried. Governor Reeder read to tbe Convention tlie report from Kansas of the dlipersion of the Territo rial Legislature by Colonel Sumner, and remarked at tbe close that he was sorry that legislature bad not waited till driven out at the poiut of the bayouet. (Cheers.) Mr. U K. Nobue asked how many troops there were belonging to tbe United St'tte* in Kansas. Governor R**Wo? said about six hundred. Mr. N'onijv? And how many in tbo entire army of tho United states T Governor Hf.kpsh ? 1 believe about fifteen thousand. Mr. Kohle? I learn from a friend near me that they can't send mors taan ten thousand men Into Kansas, au<l SO I ray li t us go on. ClBKlTT SMITH availed to see the conM'-"'ti"U~ tinued. A ItoUKUTT said he would give one hundred men who did not fear the devil, and, like Croiuwell, would praise God and keep their powder dry. Gkkkitt Smith thought funds were wanted first, and hoped to sec the collections go on. Ne othcr subscriptions, however, were received. A IWUKUTX asked for subscriptions to the Kan. as T.i bvf" the <<!itor of which, lie said, was present. Mr. 8MRR, the editor, said he was obliged for the notice of Mi paper, but there were other papers needing more merit, which had lost their presses. Mr St Club, cf Kansas, admired the generous spirit evinced by Mr. flpOSr. He (Ht. Clair) was ogcut for the ffna/il t-f /"r.iJi rs . Its pre** bad been destroyed, aud Mr Gee. W. Brown, Its editor, was in prison ou a charge , of treason, without means to defend himself. A sister o Mr Brown's v. ts present and would rectivc any contri butions. Mr. Buw said be bad some maps to sell at a shilling a piece. He would divide half of what be received between tbe sicter of Mr Brown and the Tribvn ?. Mr. **r. Ci-AiR .aid he had a w itch which was worth some hundreds of dollars, but no money. He wouldgive his watch, to be sold for tbe benetU of tbe cause.

The Boston Advertiser, old line whig, as well as old fogy, councils feft whigs as a party to steer clear of the present political organizations. It says neither of the three Presidential candidates before the people to a whig. Neither of them preteudB to be a whig, although all of them, and the adherents of all of them, hope to get whig votes. Mr. Fillmore was formerly a whig, but be baa seen fit to abandon the whig party; be has accepted the platform of another party; the party which, In Massa chusetts. rose triumphantly to power by the defeat of the whig )>arty . fie is the standard bearer of the party which, at this time, in Massachusetts, is the strongest opposing party with which the whigs have to contend.

Alderman Ki r thought the idea of baviug an onUnanea giving any political party such a prrritsgo was prepaa terous ; barbers and others depsading om their trades Mr living could not ask such a thing.

Alderman Vakriaw moved to amend by paving a per tion of these streets, leaving the remainder for anotfMr year. Alderman Voori ns contended for the same, as tike appropriation was not sufllcicnt to carry out the improvement. If the oontiaot was given to Mr. Osr nell, at t'i IV), the work would this year far exceed the appropriation (976,000) which the legislature allowed ta be raised ; also that the city should not, as was provide* in the report, pave between the railroad tracks. Alderman Stkkrs spoke in ravor'of tho improvement, as one due to the eastern section of the city. Alderman Tcckkr was in favor of the Improvement, but he was not satisfied with tho careless contrast sought to be confirmed. The old materials were not men tioned: they were worth a large sum, and the contractor would take them from the city, and sell the same te tbe city.
