A reentry of lite vote- was accordingly tikeu. in pur suance of the act of the IVrritoria! Legislature, eo far s.s it wait possible, under the peculiar stale of thing* then existing, to do 80. It appears that a portion of the mhabi tacts refused to be registered; some gave Sttitious names, and others prevented the officers from complying with the law Mi Stanton, then Acting Governor of Kansai. says, on that subject ?

The purpose I* universally regarded to be to eatabliah reign of terror. * A few weeks since. one of theaeconaervallve democrats. who had committed no other offence than permitting the uae of hla name aa a candidate for the ronatitutisnel convention, waa abused and Injured In the moat shocking manner, and the moat revolting attroctUea wrie committed upon hii wife by soma of the Insurrectionary narty. It will be per i eived that thi? military organization embraces the whole Territory, being arranged into four divisions and eight brigade*. * * * 1 am well antlsided that a larce portion of the insurrectionary party tn thla Territory do not deal re a peaceful settlement of thin qunllot, but wish It lo remain open, In order to agitate the country for years to come. August IK The Insurgent military orc-uu'atioti under (leueral I<ane Is still progressing. Arm* are l>eiug supplied and his troop* drilled tor action. We are thrcateucd with the seizure of the polls at various points, by the** insurgent forces When it la remembered that the Topeka parly claim to outnumber their opponents at leaat tea to one, tnc pr> text for astembllng these forces to protect the. polls is evidently moat fallacious. It thug appear* to the committee, from official evidence, that the opposition tn Kansas to tUe Leoompwn Convention consisted of perilous engaged In insurrection, rebellion and revolution. Some few are known to be rltimuu of the Unite! State*. Whether the others are citizens or aliens, wnether In allegiance or not, they are all kuown to be enemies of the government, and ojienly engaged in altemptrt against law an<f order in the Territory. and against the peace ?nd quietude of society. Many have been shown by Governor Walker to be hired mercenaries, seat oat by the abolition societies or the Kast, and all working in concert to accomplish in Kansas what the Supremo Court and public sentiment have decided Congress has no power lo do. that It, to prohibit slavery to the Territory of Kusw; and more than that, prevent the people of the Territory from exercising the privilege of deciding that question for themselves in their own way. To da which they hare gotten up military organizations of a rebellious character; have committed the most ro voltaig outrages against persons and property, threaten ing to deluge the land in blood; alienating one sectioo of the Union from tbe other, and endangering the existence of free government. Such are the characters?sucli are the objects and dangerous results of the opponents of the Lccompton const tutioo. But, without regard to this Insurrectionary movement, the regularly le^sl Convention of (Kansas, in pursuance of law, assembled and adopted the constitution now be;are the committee, which l- thorough!? republican in form, i >ut of deference to those who might be opposed to African slavery, and to avoid all pretext of complaint on the part of opponents, this Convention submitted the question of slavery or no slavery to a d.rect vote of the bma_Ms inhabitants of the Territory. That electim was ordered for the 21st Decembor. 1867, when it was accordingly held, and rcsul'ed as follows:? Constitution with slavery 6,226 rotes. Constltuticn without slavery 609 voles. Making an aggregate of 6,796 votes An opportunity has consequently been afforded to tbe people of Kausa.- to decide thu question of slavery for themselves, and that dectsion is now before us with all the sections of law. No real or valid exception can be takes to any other part of the constitution, on this subject lYcsidoct Buchanan has well said in his message In fact, the general provisions of our recent State const! tutRiUH after an experience of eighty years, are s>< similar and so excellent, that it would l>e difficult to go tar wroug at the present day in framing a new constitution. The constitution conforms precisely to what Governor Walker said wot:Id meet his most cordial approval, and that he should devote his whole time in addresses every day the people of every county in the Territory t? ensure iU adoption He says :? Adopt a constitution very similar lo that of aome of the Southern Statea, securing the right to the alavet now In the Territory, uumhering probably fnan two u. three hundred. but prohibiting the introduction of any more; excluding all tree negroes, enforcing by mott *u-ingcnt provisions the eie rotiou of the fugitive Slave Uw, securing the right of appeal in all constitutional caees to the Supreme Court of the I'ntted State*, mid requiring all officers or the government, executive and judicial the Judge* and inspectors of all election*, and the attorney* of all courta. to take an oath to support the cotiMltuiiou of ine State and of the I'ntted States. Such a ronatttutlon. If aubratUed to a vote of the whole people, would, to my opinion, be adopted by a very considerable ma jonty. It will be s<eti that the Convention at l?oompton ban adopted mat such a constitution, with the single exception of the clause j rohibiting the introduction of any more slHveti. ant. that clause has boon submitted to a fur and direct vote of the people themselves, registered and un registered, thua leaving no poastblc pretence (or complaint It ia well known that the only real matter of controversy in Kansas was the question ot slavery. Kvtdenoe to that effect could be accumulated almost witheut limit, establishing the fact But the committee deem this unne cesaary, a* the fact itaelf will hardly be disputed by any one Such being the caae, do roasouable ground tor complaint can be found; for that question was submitted to all the Una .hd* inhabitants for decision un the 21st December. There la no pretence that any districts, counties or persons were disfranchised at that electioa Kvery aualitled voter, whether registered or not registered, had ic unrestrained privilege of vutuig for or agaiust slavery. Here then, was tne opportunity to settle the ouly existing dtffl:ully, if It wae desired. Would it not be very extraordinary to permit a factious portion of the people, in total disregard of the laws, to stay wilfully front the [tolls, when, according to law . and according to the published notice of (ioveroor Walker they were squally bound as if the) bad voted, and then claim the privilege of having a waWaM If it was true that they bail, as they assert, a majority tp|?*ed to slavery, they aould bav? voted out the clause i "an .'t'omng that institution.

Thm settlement greatly ptaaaed one party, and greatly displeased the other. The defeated anti slavery party professed to believe thai Coop-ens had power and oogtii I to eierriae it, to exclude Blare property from territory 1 which bad been acquired by tbe joint efforts and at the common eipr nse 01 slave holder* and non slave holders . The victor ton/* democratic party believed that CongreM had uo such power under the qpostitution, and that it would be mequitanie io exercise it, tr 11 dm; Mid, also, j that to thin particular case, such an exercise of power i would be a flagrant violation of the third article of the treaty with France, by which the country was acquired. Immediately after the passage of the act, people living in Missouri, upon the borders of Kansas, being well acquainted with the country, poured into that territory in large numbers, and appropriated many of the moat fertile, beat watered and heat Umbered tracts Many of these carried their alavea with them. Ob tbe other band, prior to the final pasiage of the Kansas Nebraska bill, but after itapassage became erldeni certain members of Congress formed a sac ret association, wbic'i ultimately became public, to Incite and aid the emigration into Kansas of person* oppoeed to Ihe existence or slavery, for the exprees purpose of so carrying out its pro vision* as to cause an exclusion of Ihe slave property ofthe Southern States from the Territory. This secret oombi nation of politicians to perpetrate sectional injustice wu promptly followed by public ones, and moneys were collected in numerous places for tbe express purpose of siding an effoi t to exclude Southern property from Kansas. This sectional and fanatical purpose was, in practice, gene rally coupled with some one or more schemes of money makirg of a highly speculative character. This eflbrt very naturally provoked ceunter efforts, and violent controversies betwoeu the assailants and the assailed followed. Tbe creators of strife, as often is the case, were worsted. Of tbe voters on that ooctsion this may be said: Many were bad men The scenes were, if possible, as disgraceful ai those which have been such a scandalous reproach to the large cities of the Atlantic and l'scidc States in violently contested elections. Immediately after tbe very Drst election, many of tbe voters belonging to each of the contending parties, and among them the defeated candidate for delegate to Congress, left tbe Territory, never to return. Few of the emigrants from the various States other than those from the adjacent State of Missouri, who alon? bad easy and early facilities for making themselves comfortable, pasted the first winter in Kansas, and many of the settlers in Kansas from Missouri passed tbe winter out of the Territory. But with tbe spring emigrauu and disturbance* returned to Kansas. During the whole of the second year (1866) it is believed the majority of the actual settlers in Kansas were emigrants from the adjoining State. But as the mui of tbe emigrants sent out to Kansas under the inspiiation of the abolitionists were poorly fitted for labor in unbroken fieldi, and had to draw largely upon tbe aid of absent and tacatical friends for support, and as both the supported and the supporters were accustomed to wrangling and disputation, the Territory was quickly filled with strife. And as local contention and violence increased, so did the beat and tbe contributions of the remote supporters, until the turmoil in K'inua on nnp ciHp mntnroH into nnAti lioflanra nl mil the law* or the Territory. The mere handful ol emigrants were ostentatiously furnished, even by religious men, imid prayers and hymns, with destructive weapons, and encouraged to set up an independent government. Thia was only net put into actual operation, probably, but for lli? kMM of the government oth<ern, backed by tbe troop* off he Cnited States. For nearly three years these turbulent spiriU, thus encouraged by the restless and fanatical else where, have kept the Territory in a stale of anarchy and disorder. They have uniformly disregarded the laws, so lar as it has t>e*n possible for them to do so. When elections were held, instead of peacefully participating in them, th-y disturbed and annoyed the voters in every conceivablc way, and ended in holding elections upon days and in a manner unauthorized by law, and expre^ly to contravene the law. When, at ast.toend, if possible, these disorders and *trife?, Ihe legislature made provision for a veto of the people upon the questiou whether a State government should be formed by the making and adopting of a roust, lutiou, thene organized diuturbert. combined to prevent a rull and fair vote So, likewise, when tbe Convention had ix?en ordered l>> a regular vote of tbe |>eople to be called, ;!iet?- armed miecbiel makers threw every obstacle In the way of a full registration of the *eltlern legally entitled o vote for members of the Convention; and then, when hese violent, illegal ana bloody efforts liad been partially successful, tbey tilled tbe country with their complaint* bal the registration, which tbev had resisted with arms, ad not been full and tair: and as the registration was not hsolutely full and complete, they wished tbe people of , he I'nited States to infer that tbe ek*ction of the members the Convention was oeitber legal nor fair. Tbe >eoplo having, by direct vote, ordered the calling of a | ouvontion to torm a ccrastttauon. tbe abolition agitators iud disturbern refuse to vote at tlie ele;tioa of memlwr* >r -awl Oonveiiiion. and tlr?u after an iitmlinaln refusal -awed an outcry that th?

In thii> opinion the committee do not concur. Tne people may assemble, as In ancient days, m mass mooting, and make a constitution, they may elect representatives to make one tor them; or they may elect representatives to draft one to be submitted to them tor approval or rejection. The I Ml method is most approved of during the past few years, though formerly the socoud met nod wad very generally resorted to The calling or the constitutional convention of Kansas is generally conceded to have been strictly legal. The election of its members ts also admitted to have been legal. Is it uot logical to infer that a convention legally called, legally elected, and clothed with authority to make a constitution, can no more be interfered with by (loveruor, Judge or legislator, either to increase or dlmiuish its (towers, or to alter, modify, or nullify its acta, than the people could be Interfered with hau they assembled en vtatx instead of by representatives? The l>egt?lUur? of a Slate may not alter or annul the constitution thereof unless thereto specially authorized by tuc people. No election or officers uDder a constitution, no vote ou the adoption of a constitution, held on a day prior, or on a day sub?e<juenl, to the day died by the lawfully const 1 tuted autlx ritic.s, is considered valid in any 8Ute, or in any Termory, or in any city, county, or town, in the United Slate*, no matter how few or how many persons may engage in the lawless proceeding. No man can be chosen ("resident, or Governor, or Ma> or, or Justice of the l'eace.bul ou the day appointed by law; and, except by law l< bp ard shameless desperadoes in kauas, no where m the Coiled State* has this doctr ine been practically cntrnvcrtcd. li tho monstrous practice* of the bold bad men of Kansas, now an exception, are to be erected into a rue I, bow long will it be ere some audacious sectional fac"I11 * nr??uiw?o fru? linlHino a I'rAawinnttftl alAT.tinn oo a day other than that appointed by the law* Ami when elections are held without law by tactionists, and ou a d.y subsequent lo the day appointed by law, their candidal. 4 will always have most votes; the legal candidates will by j them be pronounced the "minority candidates," and the j irrrgtilar and illegal ones will be cilled the "majority candidates." Then will follow strife, bloodshed, aad civil war. Nights, it must ever be borne in mind, can be bent and most surely upheld by strict adherence to laws; outrages and crimes are easiest committed and best protected in tbe midst of civil commotiou. There is no real and true safely to our liberties and insti tutions but in a strict adherence to the spirit and the let ter of our constitutions and laws; and there id no danger to our peace and our Union that we cannot easily escape 11 we will conscientiously adhere to them. Whu ever heard of a legislature other than that of Kansas which bad the presumption to appoint a day, open the polls and request the people to vote for or against a constitution which had been hnailf adopted by the people two weeks before, and which nobody could change but the people, and they ouly by a formal action to thai direct endr The action on the constitution 00 the 21st December, 1867, was final action, and that instrument was on that day a com pleted one, it can be changed, as all State constitutions can be; but, until formally and lawfully changed, it is valid; and its turbulent opponents will tind that the va lidity of that fuudamedtal law caunot be alleeled by a town meeting harangue, or by an irregular vole ordered l>y a rash body of heated partizaus. Many generous persons who are quite indisposed to countenance the violence and contumacy of the abolitionists sent into Kansas for the purpose of excluding therefrom all property uot pleasing 10 them and their aaottors, urge that something might be done to lossen the hard ships that will fall upon them in the event of the aitanis sion of Kansas into the Union with the constitution made a 1/ecompton. that, although it is true that the abolition Lstfl violently opposed registration; would not vote at elections; held sham elections on days subsequent to those apjiomted by law, and even refused to vote against tbe establishment ot slavery at a time when they pro leased to belie-ve their doing so would have excluded it, and tbuw nave |>eaceTully settled the question to their own sstiafartion, yet, they consider it would be too severe to compel ouch contumacious citijeiM, even though it is their own fault, to live under a constitution which, however ,-r.evous it* provisions may prove to be, they cannot cbauge, without resorting to revolution, until the year W>4 To such, without resorting to the roady answer that Congress has no power to mo<lify or alter a State constitution, and has mnab stipulated that Hie |>eople of Kansat- shall be permitted to form their oWii institutions, subject only to the constitution oftba United States, two replies may be given The tirst one is this:?The clause romplained of in the I .ectropion c met it at ion, id thu conaction. is in these wot as?

Politics, u science, is doubtless uulerstoocl much bolter out of Kansas Territory than in It; area politics, as a game, may be played smarter in other regions, but no wbera is it puraued witb more energy, derotioo, zest and uMcrupulouaneaa than in tbia crescent Territory. Te minutia. The majority of the free State party believe, whether the I<ecomptoa constitution paasea Coogreas or not, the only (free State) aenatora sent to Con great from K*"t*T will be under the constitution to be framed by the Convention which U to be elected on the second Tuna j day In March next. Now, every leading man in that parly ! aspirea to be a United States aonator: to achieve that ! position, almost every one of them is willing to sacrittse , anything or pursue any course. The result is an incessant > cross tiring, plotting and onderplotling between these aspirants, to carry their points. The Territorial Legislature is about to adjourn, and its j members go home to their constituents; there the Minneola capital bill stands black aud acowling against them. Some ; thing must be dooe. The old ruse, the old g?me of ex- j citement, war feeling, and the Topeka constitution, which 1 has been played, run into the grouud, buried, resurrected, re-played aud re-burried almost ever siace the history of Kansas began, is again resorted to. It will cover up Minneola tracks, by withdrawing the attention of the jko pie to another point; it will excite the people, au 1 thus make political capital to the movers in It. The majority of the citizens long, to the depths of their heart, for peace, and yet a superficial observer would say they are but an old fiddle, on which the demagogue aspirants play whatsoever tune they please. Well, in this old new game there is a chance, at least, of hiding one thing and succeed ng in another; so all ttie politicians plunge in together, and to one who enjoys an inside view of this amphitheatre of gladiators, the light in exoeeiingly amusing; each strives to outdo the other, to get the inside track, to bid highest for the popular favor in whatsoever be think3 is popular, each combatting against alt the others and all the others against him, providing he is high enough to merit that favor. But as no one cau hold all the otners back, the greatest effort of each is to run ahead himself, to make the most political capital Hence the act in the upper House protesting to Congress against the paaeage ol' the I?rompton constitution, and authorising the people to bear arms Against it , hence the act in the lower House m?king it a penal offence, punishable by death, to in any w?) rtcoguise or attempt to enforce the Locomptoa con* stitutional government But there are MinncoU tracks outside of the I<egisla ture ai well as In, to be covered up, and there are parties outside of the Legislature as well ad in, who need soma thing for buucombe or ou which ts make political capital Hence the following amendment to the Lecompton penal otlence law, made by Charles Robinson. Ksq , Governor of the State of Kansas under the Topeka constitution, and presented in the Council by one of its members. This ! amendment, or rather additioo, is a curiosity, anl worth reading ?

Whereas, the Legislature oT the Territory or Kinsaa is required by the statutes to meet at the oapital of aatt Territory to bold their aeveral sessions; and, whereaa, the halls provided for the holding of the annual seseiona ef said legislature are incoaveaient in point of distance fr?* each other, aa well as uacomfortable and unsuitable, Uuf being open and cold and destitute of committee and other necessary rooms for the transaction or the legitimate business ot the legislature, and, whereaa, there i?a general lack of suitable accommodations for members and oOoers of said legislature; and, whereas, suitable accommodations can readily be obtained in other points in U>? Territory?lb rref ore, be it Resolved, by the Governor aud Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Kansas, That we do adjourn at eieraa o'clock P II. this evening, to- meet in Lawrence, Kaaaaa Territory, oa Friday, January 8,1868, at twelve o'oiook M , to hold Cue remainder of the present session, and that the Secretary of the Territory be requested to prooara suitable rooms for the accommodation of said legislative Assembly in said city of lAwrence. Having approred that resolution, and thereby tully recognised the rahdity of the laws under which we nave been acting. I am not now prepared to take it back ao4 solemnly declare that what I then aa solemnly sssertoi ta be true, is untrue. The location of the seat of government at the town af lecompton haa been acknowledged by the general government by the expenditure of money for the ereclioa af public buildings; it was acknowledged by me wbea I kept the Executive office there; it was acknowledged bjr you when you convened there; it was acknowledged bfr us conjointly when we adopted the foregoing reaotations, (in all of which, In my opinion, we had no ottear alternative,) and neither before nor since that tinae has Congress given ua any authority to change ft. The adjournment from lecompton to this place ?, as alleged, for the want of suitable or sufficient accommodations. The temporary removal oT the legislature in July, 1866, from Pawnee to Shawnee Manual Labor Schoei, it is alleged "was forced oathe legislature for the reaaae that at Pawnee there waa no place for accommodation, aud members had to camp out, sleep in their wagons or huts, and ccok their own provisions." The bill before me requires the Territorial officers (whoee offices are required to be kept at the seat of government) to ''remove from a place where they hare sufficient and comfortable accommodations to a point where they would have ta camp out, sleep In their wagons or tents, and cook thatr own provisions," and that, too, at a season or the year when the freather is usually very inclement in this latitude No buildings bare been prepared for the uae of the ?Acere, nor can there be within the month or six weekB iatei veiling, uor have I been able to ascertain that tfea towu or Minneola baa anything more than a descriptnre existence ou paper. If, therefore, the reasons heretofore aseigued for rack removals may be regarded sufficient, the same reaauw are likely to exist next year (if tfcls proposition caa to earned out), and the "iicrmauent soat of government" may again be removed tor the beuetlt ot some oiker paper town, which uia> then be found more needy thaa liiuntola. With theee objection* the bill is herewith returned to the Uou.v: in which it or if mated J. W. DK.WER, Acting Governor. kesbpahv 8, 18&8. Notwithstanding the reason* ably aet forth ia tola veto both branches of the legislature passod the act over the Governor's head by precisely a two thirda vom. As 1 bave previously explained, the matter was all cat and dried, two thirds of both houses were pledged to voto for the bill against what reasons soever the Governor might Such is Kansas legislation by the immacalate free State party. In Doniphan the free Stale men have been burning anil destroying the property of snme pro slavery m?n,aad driving them off, alleging as their reasons for doiag so Dial the said pro slavery men were accessory before the fact to the murder o! a free State man several month* ago. lane is down there, and of c<>urse playing hit> usual Kme of excitement, war !.>o!.ns and local mMMHi e commission appointed to mvesiiga e eloction frauds have nearly finished the r labors Two copies of their report, including the teet'iaony of all the witnesses examined, are being made out?one tor the Legislature, the other to be immediately sent by the legislature to Cmgre*.?.
