An application for a change of vanue, on the ground of the excited state of feeling in Powshiek Co., was granted, and the Cfmrt moved the case to Mahaska county. WO sooner was this known, than an organized mob of several hundred, forcibly took Thomas from the Sheriff and hung him upon A tree, A •fcort distance outside of Montezuma. The FRIES of the victim, and the demoniac yells of UKF mob, are said to "fully endorse" the course of their delegate,who voted for the objectionable articles separately and for the "deleterious Constitution" as a whole! Is there no upright Democrat left in Wapello county to require an explanation of this singu larly dishonest, and inconsistent course of the Convention? O. P. Q. Mr. O. P. Q. is not fully posted in relation to the late and very memorable convention to which he imputes inconsistency* The resolu­ tions to which he refes were not reported to the convention until after its adjournment,and conseq lently were not adopted et all. It is doubtless all very true that resolutions of the "tiaracter above 'indicated were elaborately drawn up at bead-quarters,and it is a violent presumption that the public abroad were duly advised that they would be adopted by the convention in subserviency to tJ.e interests of Nebraska shin-plaiters, and in obedience to tie encyclical letter of the Hon. B. Henn. But either circumstances were unpropitious, Bhrunk from committing they come to the sticking point, or for some other reasou, the convention adjourned with out formally adopting the resolutions. They may have been reported as adopted, perhaps. We have pot seen any printed report. It is a tact, hjwever. that notwithstanding the overwhelming majority in favor of a re vision of the Constitution, and the pretence on the part of the Shain-democracy generally, up to a recent themselves against the new Constitution, when which the victims were placed, and the ropes period, tbat this revision would not he made a party question,the entire absence of party ism in the convention, and the hearty support which the ablest and beet democrats in the State are giving to the new Constitution, the leaders in this County are bitterly hostile to it, and are leaving no stone unturned to compass its defeat, resorting for this purpose to every species of misrepresentation,and ap pealing to every imagined popular prejudice. Dr. Hint,the candidate for County Judge, we understand, has taken ultra grounds against it, on the stump,' and otherwise the impression is suught to be created that the party as such are agaiost it.
