' A State Government.
We had. purposed a reply to Mr.
Steaexs article, "which we publish on
our fourth pagethls week, but having
delayed to write it until our return from
Tpeka, and Laving so much matter now
on our hands, we must defer it till another
occasion. The people have decided in fa
vor of forming a Slate Government, and
no free State man will now hesitate as to
his duty. We must be united, and pull
together. , To attempt to frustrate the
movement will be throwing obstacles in
the way, which it will require labor, de
manded in another fphere, to remove.
We were decidedly in favor of the en
terprise, and believe it the best tliat
could be advised to get out of aa unpleas
ant dilemma. The eastern press, as far
as we have seen any expression upon the
subject, have approved of the measure.
It will succeed. The people of Kansas
iu view of their present enslavement, and
as the most practical method of throw
ing off a foreign yoke, will joyfully and
with enthusiasm, extend to it their earn
est support. Congiess will hail it with
delight, as the easiest way to get rid of a
vexed question. The President will be
glad to shift the responsibility which now
rests upon him. Aud a few months only
will elapse when we shall be surrounded
by a State Government capable of self
protection. Let the minions of the slave
power then dare to over-ride our liberties
wrest from us the dearest rights of
freemen, the elective franchise; let them
send mobs, or anytbingelse upon us, and
we can raise; armies for our defense.
The country, undena State government
will prosper in an unparalleled degree.
Peace aud quiet once restored to our bor-
J ders, and emigration, such as was never
known in the history of any county, will
make towards it. Taxes, which is now
the great objection, will bo divided
among a dense population and will hard
ly be felt because of the many V) bear
tlie burden and expenses of an economi
cally administered government. Five
years will not pass away from the time
we are admitted into the Union as a Sov
ereign State when our population will be
as dense, and nearly as great as any State
in Uie American confederacy. A glori
ous destiny is ours, and it is our duty
as a people to provide for it.
The Topelia Convention.
We regret our inability to do justice
to the Convention this week. Our col
umns are overrun with important items
which we cannot defer. Everything is
pressing upon our time, and demanding
an immediate consideration, many of
which we cannot put off. Suffice it theu
to say that the greatest harmony charac
terized the proceedings. Differences of
opiuion were entertained by delegates.
Some were their instructed to oppose the
formation of a State government, but a
majority of the Convention decided in
lavor ot the movement; the small mi
nority waved lhir objections, aud joined
heartily and with enthusiasm with the
majority. As must be the case in
all deliberative bodies, as soon as the
minority saw that they were not in the
asceudant, they gracefully lent their en
energies in perfecting the arrangements
of the majority. Tiie result, will be vis
ible by referrence to the published pro
ceedings in another column.
We had purposed to speak of Topeka,
of her inhabitants and improvements
and of the character of the men in at
