Yesterday was their gala day. They held their first .Stole Convention to celebrate the ratification fo the fifteenth Amendment, and did it ih n way which raut have been satisfactory to themselves as it was to all who joined with them and to all who witnessed the grand demonstration. All of the organization and societies participating in the celebration would have formed a line a mile and a half in extent, and numbering many thousand person-, The principal towns repre sented crc Lawrence, Atchison, Wy andotte, Fort Scott, 1'aola, tojieka and Junction City, and there wa hardly a prominent colored man in the State who was not present. And wives and chil dren came alo, so that the occasion was en joyed by all and was a general jubilee. The appearance of the pnicession was very fine, the Masons, the Benevolent Society, and the arrlus religious mcirtics making as credit-sd)k- an exhibition of themehcs as we have 'ever seen on a day of general rejoicing. The music was also of the best kind; among the bands there was Bloss's German band of this city, the Seventh Cavalry band; and nn es culent Kinii of cnloed musicians from Toitkr.. Our citizens entered into the movement heartily, and were glad to rejoice with those who rejoiced. One place of rendezvous was the Turner Hall, and the other the Arsenal grounds of the Fort, and both were Inrgclv atlc'tidcd. At Turfcr Jtall the meeting was called to hifcr at 1 o'clock, by Capt. Wm. I). Matthews. A few remarks of a business na ture were made by Kcv. Mr. Henderson, of Lawrence, when Kcv. J. C. Embry came forward and introduced Senator Revels. His remarks were vciy happy and appropriate, but exceedingly brief. Senator Revels was reccncJ With pro longed applause-, fll'i! made a short Iwt able 4nd lioiilUnl address. The Senator is a very fcasy speaker and a natural orator. He lias the utmost sclf-piisession, but no air of dic tation or siijieriority. He wins his audience by conciliation, and carries them with him not b-ss by the force of his arguments than by his candor and urbanity of manner, He In- done Imtiur to himself and his race in the Senate, a:d it is Jtlaltl lH Pee lit Vlould tf rt il atV wheh.-, lWl's d 11U11I of superior itvwf Wiaraitcr. !te said Ve had met to celebrate an event UiviinM,rt.iuce of which to us was indescriba ble.

The wisdom with which the col ored in. in ha- exercised the right of franchise in the South proves how fully he deserves it. Without the frevdincn the work of reconstruc tion could not have been completed. I ad-vi-tie:ice with IX-mocratSjImtlwonldsayno colored man can ever regard a Democrat as his friend.

Thrwizli the kindness, of the Marshal, Mr. Berts, we, have received the following reruras of the census taken in four of the townships of this county : In Prairie township, the whole number of inhabitants is 91 1, tlie num ber oWoters 240, a little less than four in habitants to one voter. Shawnee township 1,24 inhabitants and -S8 voters, a trifle more than four to one. Delaware township f counts 926 inhabitants with but 245 voters, a little more than three and a -hair to one. In Wyandotte township, not including the eitr,' there are 1,854 inliabitants, to 346 voters, a little more than five and one fourth to one. The four townships foot up 4,942 inhabi tants to 1,119- voters, making an average of something less than four and a half in habitants to a voter. It has been usual to estimate the number of inhabitants in a district at about six to everV voter. The above returns would in dicate that estimates of population in-that ratio from the number of voters might prove quite delusive.. ' CklM barae4 IIp-ExfclMtiM.

May ence is in a state of surge and occupied bj 25.000 soldiers. Trenches are opened in front of tlie city, and persons unable to pro vide themsesves with six week s provisions, have been notified to depart. The large force encamped on the heights of bt.

Large rafts are descending the Rhine at all hours with pro visions and mnniuoru of war. between Mavence and Coblenz. and a formidable amount of war material has been collected. New instructions from the war office say there will be an entire change of tactics. Hereafter there will be no open campaign tactics but will be similar to those employed in a seigc in advance under cover of entrenchments on the Rhine. Provisions are being landed with improvised walk. The country between Cobblcntxaad Mavence Is entirely cut up in this foshkm. This new system of defence requires a new mode of attack, hence the delay of the French advance. A Prussian corps has bees sta tioned as a curtain to block the fomt. The principal forces are concentrated in a triangular section of tlie country formed by the rivers Rhine, MomIIc and Saar. The last two rivers form a line of defence. The left of the army rests en the Rhine near Landau and the right stretches out to Moselle, near Treves. Jt is believed that Prussia will raise her army to a million and a quarter of soldiers, and ad vance on France the day after a declaration of war.

The ac quisition of S.'arhurg and Landau, while a broader settlement of the boundary question on the Irisis of language, was not to be ex pcttctl. Ihe instances in May 1806, took the form of a proposition of an alliance, o'flemivc ami defensive in a niaurcript, tlie original of which Is in the foreign office here;, the proponhion are as follows: First, should a convention of the jKjwcrs assemble, Italv is to have Venetia and Prussia the Duchies; sevciu', should Congress disagree an alliance of of fensive and defensive will be made between France and Prussia; third, Prussia Ls to open hostilities against Austria within 10 daysafter the dissolution of Congress; fourth, should no Congrs? meat, Prussia is to attack Austria Within thirty dajs after the signature to tiiis present treaty ; fifth, Napoleon Is to begin hos tilities against Austria as soon as Pra-sia. be gins, by despatching 300,000 men during the month across the Rhine; sixth, no separate treaty shall be made by either power with Austria when a first treaty is made. The fol lowing are to be the condition: First, Venetia to go to Italy; second, Prus sia to select German territory at will for an nexation, the number of inhabitants not to exceed eight millions of souls, and the terri toiy thus acquired to become part of the kingdom of Prussia without federal rights; third, France to have a liberal share oi the Rhine provinces; 4th, a military and mari time alliance to be made hrtWetn France and Prussia, to which Italy may be a party should she desire. The prop-aniiue the circular state as re peated m June, 1806. Ih spite of the threat ening urgency of France, tlie proposals which were ineessahtly renewed, with modi fied conditions for the purpose of pacifying Belgium and South Germany, were never seriously entertained by Prussia. For the sake of peace, boweTer, it was thought lwst to leave Napoleon to his delu sion. No word implying approval was re turned. Time was counted on to revolution ize France and extinguish the scheme, hence the long delay and silence.. J" The attempt against Inxemburg failing, France repeated her former propositions, making the specifi cations clear in regard to the acquisition of Belgium by France and South Germany by Pruwia. The last propositions were frustrated by Count Benedetti himaelf, and k ia im probable tint he wrote them without the au thority of the Emperor, as they are the same which were made four years ago under the call of war as the alternative of their rejec tion. Berlin, August 1 The bti-kation about opeaing facilities, and the delay ;in the Im perial deckration of war are aacribed to con ciontnea on the part of Napoleon that the war would be long and painful, owing to the superiority of the needle gun over the Chasae pot, aa already demonstrated in the encoun ter betweai skirmishers.

Head wounds number nine, and the skull in all arts completely shattered. No arrests made, nor is there the slightest clue to the perpetrator. It is generally believed that only robbery was intended, but being discov ered by Mr." Nathans, it is thought the mur derers concealed themselves in the boose yes terday, as all the doors and windows were secured except the front door, by which tliey escaped.

Mr. Singleton, tlie sec ond clerk, states that jurt as the watch was called the explosion took place and in a moment the bout was wrapped in names and nothing was left for the survivors but to plunge into the river and swim someSOO vards to the nearest sliore. Owing to the darkness of tho night it was impossible to render assistance to Uie woumleet. .As the j I looks of the principal officers were, lost it was impossible to obtain a full Iit of the lost.

Some two hours after the explosion the steamer Citv of Cairo hove in sight and went to the relief of the sufferers', all of whom were taken on board and brought here, where they are being kindly treated. The Spray floated down about two miles and lodged on a bar where she and the barge burned to the waters edge. Everything on hoanl, includ ing personal effects, was Io-!.

Tket'ropWcMtbrr. Lead. Rn'ilroaHs. aad alker Stutters. The harvest is ended and fanners are quite generally moving their wheat and oats to market as fa,t as thrcshetl. Wagon loads of grain have here daily for Leavenworth, though many farmers are selling to Smith & the grain shipping firm lias es tablished a reputation for fair ami honorable dealing, and will doubtless handle a good share of the grain in this neighborhood. Their shipments of corn since the last liar vest aggregate several thousands of bushels. Their consignment have been principnlly by the Kansas Pacific Branch, and the Mis souri Pacific road direct to St. Louis. There is but one objection to shipping in this man ner, which is the unreasonable freight tariffs on those roads, though the rates upon the latter road are not to le compared in exorbi tancy with thoe upon the former. The Kansas Pacipe Iiraneh clartjes rerenhen and eighteen dollar for moving each car load of grain in bulk from thi station to Leaven worth Junction, iu cars belonging to the Missouri Pacific road, though the distance is but nine miles. The charge for passenger tickets to iA-avenworth is ninety-five cents. Rather than pay the-c exorbitant rates for railway transportation many grain farmers prefer to team their crops over the heavv wagon roads to Leavenworth. There Is some hope that the projected Leavenworth and Topeka road will, as soon as complet ed, have the effect, in the cnmH-titioii it will create, to reduce these rates. But would it not !e well for the people in view of the near approach of the fall elec tions to seek a remedy in another direction? That the men we have heretofore been send ing to the IiCgisIature have manifested a sin gular disregard of the tieophV interests rrr.in those of railway monopolists, is no reason why such men should continue to l. m j(, the Legislature. It is undoubtedly the duty of the I.egislat!ire to protect the jieople from tlieextortionate practices of the railroad-, and they are clothed with sufficient Niwer to dis charge tliat duty; if not, ht us amend our organic Liw :in they have licen coiiqcI!cd to do in Illinois, so that the jeopIc, not the in corporated monopolies, may (e the real a well as ostensible rulers of the land.
