auy other State iu the Union; and in
Kme respects may be taken as a model
by .u ure Stiites. - We a prel. ended ihat
it would bear tlie marks of haste, but a
careful examination of it has removed
our first impressions in this respect;
There was a great diversity oi opinions
in tiiat Convention, as is to be expected
in all similar bodies; but the jarring ui -ferences
were harmonized, and a iesuu
was arrived at which tent a ti rill ot
pi 'asure to eveiy heart iu Kansas.
The great bone of contention was the
Black Law. ' One party was desirous of
enrrattincra feature inio tlie Constiiutiou
excluding every class of tlie colored pop
ula ioa from the Territory, bond or free.
Oilier saw in this a species of oppres
sion, and as for adopting it as a feature
of the fundamental law, they were con
scious they could never make their way
through Congress with such a dead
weight attached to tl at instrument.
They had the precedent of Missouri as a
land -mark to guide them. That Con
stituiiou contained a clause "To jrevent
jrte eyrut and muluttoet jrum amipg
tu, and nettling iu Ar Stute, under
auy pretext ufiulever." This provision
was found to bet&ntraty to tlie Consti
tution of the United States, wi.ich.-ecuivs
to uie citizens ot each &ute ail J.e
rights aud immunities of citizens iu the
several States." New York and several
other S ates have secured to colored per
sons, on certain conditions, the right of
cinrenship, and invested them with the
elec ive franchise. To have sanctioned
the Constitution of Missouri, with her
restrictive clause, would hav? been doing
just what the black law people of Kansas
would desire as regards u ; and yet
Congress apjended to the bill of admis
sion of Missouri an express cuhdhlon
that said clause qu ted above, should
not be so construed as t exclude tlie cit
izens of any other State from coming
into or settling in the same.
Instead of engiafting the black law
into the Ct'nstiiution, provision has been
made to obtain the sense of tlie people
upon that qnes;i i with a vVw to ftture

A good Drug Sore has -long been
among tiie list ot "wants" iu Lawrence.
Ever biuce the settlemeu. o; the Teiri
.o.y physicians aud families have he- n
compeiled to ob ain their drugs in Mi -souri,
for the want ot a neare. place to
obtain those generally-understood neces
saries tor the sick. Our r irate opinion
is : no one has sulfeied save in imaina
lion in consequence of not being able to
gratify this want more fully ; neverthe
less, ihe people demand drugs withou

have them at any cost ot money or la

Th question i frequency asked in
; coming to Kansas "S.iaU we bung a nSe
!ora revolver with us. Our answer is
"Yes aud a pair of the latter to each
man. and a bowie knife may, wiih propri
ety, ba included." .
To many. sucli advise may seem fuj.t-"
TuT; but our ;expe.ience is we are in
les-s danger of personal injury by being
well armed than we should be otherwise.
A person is bo; bound to use a revolver
because he has one on. his person. He
needs one by him in case of an assault,
aud then the chances are a hundred to
;onv he will have no occasion to use. it.
The trut i is, a man is a thousand times
braver who is confident of his own pow
ers to triumph over opposition than he
would be without such self-assurance ;
and a b ave man, backed by judgment,
and physical ability to carry his purposes
into execution seldom Las occasion to
show his powers. . .
We trust the people of Kansas will
never be called upon to defend themselves
from an organised mob, but it is best to
have the instruments in case of necessity,
aud never use them unless demanded by
stern necesi y in actual self-defence, or
in defeuee of our homes and hearthstones,-
and then we tdiould strike to tri
umph, and we have litde doubt but -uch
will be the case.
Prophecy not Fulfilled.
-In the first number of our paper, is-
sued about jear jo, we gave it u j fe' led fcjr juu ud jur biS Sj
opinion that Kansas would 'contain a fendingyour ri-'hts. " '
populat?on of 100,000 within one year I have just finished reaJin Ex G
j from that date. It is probable tliat we
do not exceed but little if any more than
half the number at this time; but tlie
cause for tlie failu.e of our piophecy is
very evident. Had it no. been tor tiie
shameful outrages practiced upon free
dom in tli is iei;n, our mosi sanguine
expectations would have been more than
realized. As it is, we 1 ave more nearly
approximated to tha-. number thau would
have b -en supposed, when all the dis
courage metiis are taken into account.
If Congress giants our petition, and
admits us a sovereign Stnte into tlie
Union, our future is a glorious one; if
the reverse, 11 is dark, gloomy and for
