In meek from to-dsy, tbe State Con
veotion meets at Topeka. Wbat tbe re
alt will be, vre shall not pretend to gness,
tbongh ire aio by no means ssnguine.
To read tbe Glarke papers, we find tbat
Sidney ia carrying everything; while in
tbe snti-Clatke papers, ire find tbat ev
erything ii going against bitn. Both
sides are abcot equally reliable fn Ibis
If Glarke cbonld succeed, be wonld
owe Lie success more to bis opponents
than (o the efforts of bis friends. The
feeling in Kansas was largely against
Clarke. Bat a mnltitade of aspirants for
bis place bave arisen, and with many ol
them', the principle set mslo be, that unless
"I" am tbe accepted man, there is no possi
bility of a change. Probably tbry will
labor to this end and doubtless some of
tbem have come out for the very purpose
of division and confusion.
Tben, there are others who bave set
themselves np as dictators, and eveiy man
who does not chime in with their notions
of minor details, has sold out to Clerle.
They contended that every man who op
poecd increased teprescDtation in the Con
vention, bad been bought np by Claike.
Every man who favors the re-nomination
of Gov. Harvey, is in ftvor of Clarke;
end every delegate who does not favor a
viva voce vote in tbe Convention, will be
corrupted by Claike. According to their
showing, tbe anti Clarke force, after be
ingenbjected totbe trimmingoflfp roctss on
all tbeir nice points, will be rather bmall
and select. In the meantime, Clarke and
his agents are vigntously at work every
where, leaving nothing undone to gain
support, and rejecting none on nice points
Under all tbe circumstances, it cannot
be expected of one to be very sanguine
of shelving Claike. If be is beaten not
withstanding, it.may be regarded as nn
evidence tbat tbe people are in earnest in
Delegates. The Leavenworth Times
publishes a list of Districts, with the
number of delegates to which tbey will
be entitled, according to to the ciphering
of Marshal Houston-. Tie First District
is given bat one, tbe Seocond, one and tbe
Fourth one. Tbe pcoplo of this County
will not consult Marshal Houston as to
the nnmber of delegates tbey are-entitlod
to. The First District has over 3500 in-
habitants, and Will send two. Tbo Sec
ond District has over 2500, and the
Fonrth almost 3000, and will each send
two. Tbe Tbird District is given two
It barely has a fraction over 2500.
Doniphan County will be entitled to nine
delegates, tbe Fifth District beiog tbe
only one having a single representative.
Tub War. European advices report
more heavy fighting between tbe Pros
elans and French, but there,, is nothing
definite as to results. Tbe Prussians
still seem to be pnsbing toward Paris,
and tbe people are beginning seriously to
calculate the consequences when that
City shall fall into Prussian bands. So
far, tbe French have been badly worsted,
and tbeir prospect does not seem to im

who consider themselves of tbe first stand

Baker and Sanford have been
offering resolutions and endeavoring to
make capital in the Labor Congress, at
Cincinnati; against Gov. Harvey. This
worthy pair of shysters bad better visit
the.bostils armies in Europe, on tbe same
"mission. .They might be able to secure a

Wo bopo these celcuUlions are not too
sanguine. All now depends opon tbe
Company finishing the gradipg, and they
should cot dippoint tbe people n bo
bave so cheerfully consented to all they
required, bard though it was. According
to Joy'a proportion, lor every day tbe
Compeny delay tbe grading after track
laying' commences, he baa an extension
of iwo days on his contract; so tbat it
will be seen that a few dayt delay on tbe
part of tbe Company, will amount to
considerable on Joy's part, if he is dis
posed to avail himelf of it. Tbe cars

"I Shell a Rat!" We learn tbat
Judge N. Price, of this County, i a can
didate for tbe Congressional nomination.
This is all a trirk. He knows he dees
not stand the remotest show. It is only
dodge to tun in a few delegates appar
ently devoted to his interests, but really
in favor of Claike. It is but carrying
out a plan bo was overheard disclosing
to a friend, early in July tbat tbey in
tended to elect Claike by dividing op tbe
opposition among a multitude of candi
dates, and getting tbcm at loggerhead
with eacb other. It is tolerably nasty
business for a Jndge to nndcrtake eacb a
game to defeat tbe will of tbe people
especially one who holds bis office through
the kind forbearance of bis own party
friends. If the perple aie in favor ol
Sidney Claike, we say elect Glarke dele

S3T An effort has been made in Kan

speech ia Leavenworth,, in which he as
serted that either himself or Sidney Clarke
would be nominated for Congress. Does
be mean that if he cannot be nominated.
he will throw what strength he controls
to Clarke? , That's the way it sounds, at
this distance. If that is the interpella
tion, it is a pretty good reason wby the
people should avoid sending Adams del
egates to the Convention. Tbe doctrine
of ''nominate mo, or yon aball take
Clarke again," is wbat has played the
mischief heretofore, and should be guard

In the event of the overthrow of Ntpo

an eqnl probability of either of tbe five
following results ensuing:
1. Tbe removal ol Napoleon may take
the form of his volnntary ahlicition in
favor of bis son, the Prince Imperial, sob
jeci to a regrnry dnring his minority.
2. The terms of the abdication being
refused, a regency of Generals may be
substituted nntil peace shall be made
with Prnssia, in order that the change ol
government may not resnlt, either ap
parently or really, from Prussian dicta
tion. " -
3. A council of European sovereigns
may be called to cnnider the basis ol
peace, including the Fieneh and Spanish
oeceaatooa, tbe Pope'a temporal power.

Albert. Count of Paris, grandson of Kinz
Louis Phillippe, and representative nl

5. In the event of such action being
forestalled by a revolution io Paris, the
