The pre-emption act of the Bth of Sept., 1841, contains the following provision: "Sec. 13. And be it further enacted, That before any person claiming the bene fit of this act shall be allowed to enter such laadshe or she shall make oath before the ireeeirer or register of the land district in which the land is situated, (who are hereby Authorized to administer the same,) that he or she has merer had the iCnefit of any right of pre-emption ander this aet ; that he or -she is not the owner of 320 acres of land in aay .State or Territory. of the United, -States, nor hath he or she settled upon and; improved said land to sell the same on spec ulation, but in good faith to appropriate it' to his lor her oirn exclusive use or benefit; .-and that be er cbe has cot, directly or tn direetiy, made any agreement or contract, iin any way or manner, with any person or jpersons whatsoever, by which the title whieh he or jshe might aeqnire from the Government f the United States should iinure in whole or in part to the benefit of M 1 " , . If :any person except mmseii ornerseu; ana d'f .any person taking snch oath shall swear false j in the premises, he -or she shall be .subject to all the pains and penalties of per jurv, and shall forfeit the money which he or she may have paid for said land, and all right and title to the same, and any grant or conveyance which he or she may have made, except in the hands of bona fide pur chasers, for a valuable consideration, shall be null and void, "And it shall be the duty of the offieer administering such oath to file a certificate thereof ia the publie lanL office of such district, and to transmit a duplicate opy to the General Land Office; either of which shall be good and sufficient evidence that such oath was administered according to law." The General Land Office has recently de cided that M a claimant by pre-emption eotnplies ia a!1 respects with the provisions of the aet of the 4th of Sept., 1841, p to the date of his actual entry, a sale will not Jbe eonsidered sufficient cause for cancella tion of Ahentry, unless fraud is imputed, and a sufficient showing made on that ijround for opening the case, in which case a sale after tha entry will be an element in the iuAt5gafioau Grapes.

Special Oorreondene of Ths News. " -LECOMPToy, Oct. 28. : M Editor : ,-- Having visited this city of "magnificent distances" to see the Conven tion and other matters, I address you from iu ' ' . ' ' If you'Te never, been in Lecompton, don't come ; that is always supposing that you have not a land case to attend, or are to be tried for high treason. It's the meanest town that ever was manufactured for a spec ulation. It's one of the towns we read of. In the summer time it is overrun with rat tlesnakes, most of the fall and spring- by mud, and by loafers and land sharks all seasons of the year. The building of the Capital does not progress. They are wait in;? for the collection of taxes, the sale of Territorial stock, or some way of getting funds. It's about knee high to a Kentuck- ian, or a one-horse monument now, and the general impression is that it will never be much bigger. My opinion is that it ought to be kept just as it is, as a significant mon ument that tne rsoraer ttumans ineu to ao something big1, bnt couldn't. The troops are here principally. Differ ence of - opinion exists as to what they are here to do. That they are here to guard the Convention is the most supposable case. Occasionally they drink bad whisky. Last nirrht four of them bad a rousing list cgtu, but it was a'quiet little family affair amongst themselves. I regret to add tnat nobody was hurt. . Gov. Walker is not here. They say he has gone out to live at Stanton's claim, if you know where that is. Ihey say he is frightened for his life, from the Border Ruffians, and tkteted; but between you ana me, it's a "dodge." He wants to persuade the r ree otata people what sacrifices be is making for them, and whal risks he runs. He's a regular old crocodile, and as cunning as Satan. He has just thrown out the Su gar Mound precinct, in Linn county, which leaves the pro-slavery men of that county, or Missouri, in the majority. He has, ac cordingly, given certificates to them ; that is, he or Stanton, for they are all the same "bilin' " of potatoes. I don't know who pretends that the precinct thrown out is ir reorular, but who ever pretended that it wasn't a fair vote. Why don't the Gover nor issue another proclamation about that ? Why, he is so modest about it that he hard ly lets his right hand know what his left doeth. But I won't say any more about the Gov-, ernor ; he's an "old politicioner," and is as cunning as a steel-trap fresh set. He s going to have a Walker ratification meeting on Saturday, which will come off as punc tual as proximo, unless the Border Ruffians make a fjrification of it. Driggs, his Na tional Democrat man, has got out a handbill for him, to announce the occasion, as big as Barnum's, It hxi a great spread eagle on U. Where s .Ferim? Ual But I had almost forgotten the Convention, If they don't make fun, Mr. Editor, I'm no judge. It ought to be good for the Consti tution to sit and hear them, for I declare to patience. Job couldn't keep from laughing. If there was a penalty of live cents for eve ry snicker, I would have had to leave on the first day on account; of being flat broke i and if all were to be so fined, and the fines were to fro into the treasury of the Conven tion, the members wouldn't be short of money as they are now. They have been here just ten days since the adjournment, and have done so near nothing that I can't tell the difference. The first four days were spent without a quorum, in swearing against the absentees, making big mouths at all Governors and Secretaries, and drinking all the whisky they could get on credit or in treats from those who wanted to take care of the constitutions of the delegates rather than the constitution of the future State. The next two days the committees were at work, and, although there was a quorum, the -absence of nearly one-half the members eicked the ire of the other half present, ter rible oaths and excretions still prevailed, mixed up with a little business, and prayers by the Chaplain. On Monday morning there wasn't a quo rum, and they went at it again ; but in the afternoon they began to come, and by'Tues day night there were forty-five of them, and I'll bet cigars for the company that you never saw forty -five such "fellers" in any other crowd. On Monday they run through a report OA the Executive? and took something to drink. It I mean the Executive report was intensely Know Nothing, with aris tocratic and Southern leanings, which prove that it was genuinely "Democratic," or at least "National" On Tuesday they had a "sky-high" time. Sueh eloquence was never heard since the days of Demosthenes. First, they got into a muss about referring the reports back to committees, because half of the committee men had been absent. One man, from Fort Scott, said that those laborers that had come into the vineyard at the eleventh hour should not have "every man . a penny." They couldn't come ia after the others had fought and bled and drank for their country, and try to undo everything just because they hadn't been there. If they went to refer ring and re-referring this way, they might just as welt refer every d'-- -d thing, and U-.-A i ' p But you ought to have heard "Baron" Kandolph, of Atchison. Randolph looks more nice a hog butoher, retired from busi ness, than his great namesake of Roanoke. He wears his beard in three tufts two above his mouth and one below it and they look like small beetle brushes. He is about three feet across the shoulders, and looks as amia ble as the picture of old Blue Beard. You remember he beat Stringfellow in the Atch ison district, because Stringfellow wasn't "sound on the goose," Randolph is as sound as a tailor 'a' goose. They had up the muitia report, and be spoe agm the ma lisha." He was down on the "malisha," because they were all cowards.' He wanted volunteers. . He asked if the Jmalisha" had ever done -any good. Guess-njo one ever expected, that the militia of Knzaaever did any good.. If they had never don an hannA we would hare thought more of them. - IanW dolpn said that he eould act like a man when the UOnvention anted like men ; but when the Convention acted like a baby, he could act like a baby too. Old Vanderslice told Randolph that . he had taken "too much water in his whisky.' Randolph merely remarked that if .that were so, it. was evi dence that he must be sober. Our old friend Jenkins spoke on the mili tia bill, lit objected to the- part thatjl- lowed Quakers and others to avoid' serving on account of religious scruples." He was afraid.they would all ketch religion to dodge militia duty.; He (Jenkins) was opposed to mixing up this thing o religion in any way with the Convention, except the morn ing prayer. He had always been in favor of that, but he wanted no more of it. : A long report from the judiciary was dis posed of. The report on slavery has not come up yet, nor whether the Constitution is to be submitted to the people, or if it is, how it is. - They have run through an election law, which, besides a year's residence, and sev eral other qualifications, requires the voter to have paid Territorial or State tax the year before he votes. Our red faced friend, Hughes, .has re signed hi3 place as clerk, but they have got another. One of the Judges of the Oxford precinct at the late election is Clerk of this body. What a report be trill make. . Carey; the "Republican reporter," turns np miss ing. It is well for. him, as the Delegates say they would have expelled him, because the reports he published were not "National Democratic" enough. Randolph says he is thundenn sorry he voted for him. But I must close. The weather is cool, and mildly muddy. Business rather dull. The financial crisis is at the bottom of every pocket, and real estate looking down. A special land commissioner i3 trying Brindle, the Land Office Receiver here, for endeavor ing to improve the . times by taking extra fees not provided by the inconsiderate De partment. Could they expect vl Brindle to be "without spot V t Land warrants are dull at a dollar. Green apples are six for a dime, and drinks ten cents which are the only commercial trans actions here worthy of note. I heard a gentleman offer a share, of Le compton for a share in iuckapoo. JNobody bid ; perhaps the audience thought that it would be a slim chance for either place, at least that was the opinion of Yours, as ever, Felix. Lecomptoic, Kanzas, Nov. 4, 165"?. The Convention is busilv at work. It was supposed that it would have finished and adjourned by this time, but it has got business to keep it for a day or two. . No steps have yet been taken to have the Con stitution to be submitted or not submitted. It is probable that the Constitution will be submitted to some kind of a vote; although there is yet a majority against submission. The vote for or against is nearly equal at this time. The proposition to submit has been gaining ground, having the outside po litical influence, and the prominent politi cians in the body are in favor of it. If sub mitted, the submission will be under the di rection of the men who made it, and in a way if possible to insure their success. The Convention adopted a slavery report of the strongest kind. I subjoin it. It will be seen that the pro-slavery report is incor porated in . the preamble. . The debate on the report was one of the most interesting character to the people of Kanzas. There was no opposition to the report itself, the vote on it finally standing 43 in its favor, to one against it. The discussion arose chiefly out of an amendment of Mr. Boling to strikeout a provision in the report which prevented slaves from being brought to the State as merchandise, ibis provision was the same as one in existence in Georgia, and other Slave States, and is merely intended to prevent negro Jockeying, leaving the trade in the hands of the planters. But as even this southern restriction was regarded as limiting the right of property in negroes under the Dred Scott decision,, it wa3 thus opposed, and the amendment of Mr. Boling prevailed. Mr. Boling and Mr. Jenkins urg ed that the Dred Scott decision made slaves simply property and that nothing must con flict with this view of the subject. John Randolph opposed the amendment because the restriction was to prevent Jockeys from bringing lame, blind and old negroes to the State. Mr. Henderson opposed it on the "round that nigger trading was degrading. By one clause of this constitution as thus framed, the State Capital is located at Le compton. It cannot be removed from that place but by a vote of two thirds of both branches of the State legislature. Thus if those interested in Lecompton can elect, buy up, or persuade one third of one branch of the legislature, the State Capital must re main where Missouri lawmakers put it. Another provision throws great obstacles in the way of locating county seats else where than where the bogus legislature has already put them. Thus, before a county seat can be removed, a law must be passed by the State legislature fixing the place for which the people may vote. This is putting the cart before the horse. . It was done to prevent the county seats from being remov ed. An amendment was onerea that the people be allowed to locate them by vote of the majority. This was voted down on the ground that where county seats had been es tablished equity rights had been acquired, which must not be disturbed. By provisions of this constitution, as framed, all persons holding office in the State must take an oath, not only to support the Constitution of the United States and this State, but of the laws of Congress, includ ing the Fugitive Slave law, The boundaries of the State fixed by this Constitution are the same as. those of the State under the Topeka Constitution. Part of the Constitution provides for the creation of a State bank with 4 branches, 2 north and 2 south of Kanzas river, and that its capital shall be 83,000,000. This is a direct piece of legislation, and anticipates the action of the State Legislature. It is an ob jectionable banking system. Not sufficient ly guaitfed, which would flood the State with poor money. The most surprising thing of this Is that at the present warning time of financial embarrassment it was adopted by a body - which claims to be unanimously Democratic." They have incorporated an ordinance which is designed to "sweeten" this Consti tution so that the people may have some in ducement to take it. This is a provision that Congress shall donate us a large amount With their characteristic' disregard of the duties and rights of the legislature, they have taken the unwarrantable liberty of sta ting the points from which the railroads must start, and at which they must terminate. By the arrangement they made Sbuthero Kanzas is cut off from participation in. trie benefit of such grants should they be made. This is a great and unwarrantable outrage. - Such are a lew of the features of this constitution. It is a pro-slavery constitu tion of the strongest kind. It is a partisan constitution, made to endorse and : cover up all the bogus usurpations, and serve the in terests of a handful of men in the Territory who have spent most of their efforts in rob bing the people and abusing them. It is so far, a constitution filled with legislation, so as to anticipate the action of the people's legislature. It is framed in contemplation of frauds to obtaii and retain political power. It has been made for special partizan pur poses, instead of being a simple and plain organic law for the people of an intelligent State. Felix. THE GREAT SWINDLE. Lecoiiptox, Nov. 4 P. M. ' Mb.'Editoe ; The schedule to the new Constitution has just been reported. There are two reports majority and minority. The majority report legalizes all the Terri torial Legislature has done. It declares the Territorial Legislature to be dead. It allows the Governor, Secretary and other Federal officers to remain until they are superceded ly the- action of this Convention. It pro rides for an election on the 21st of Decem ber next, at which only one article of the Constitution, called the slavery article, is to be submitted. Whether this be voted down or not, the Constitution is to be sent to Washington on the pretence that it is ratified by the vote. The Constitution is really a pro-slavery Constitution, whether this arti cle be voted down or not. It is merely that slavery shall not be abolished but by the consent of owners of. slaves, and other pro visions. By other parts of the Constitution there can be no change in Ihe Constitution but after many years and by two-thirds vote. The other report wants the Constitution sent up, without any election whatever, or even the pretence of a vote. . By both reports a Regency is created in Kanzas. That Regent is to be John Cal houn, President of this Convention. . He is to be virtual ruler of Kanzas ; is to convene the State Legislature by proclamation ; is to appoint judges of election at the State or all other elections ; is to receive all election returns, and decide who are entitled to seats, and give certificates. He virtually deposes Gov. Walker, when this Convention ad journs. These are the alarming features of this great swindle. Felix. Hints for the Present Month. Finish speedily the harvesting of root crops, and see that they are secured from frost. See to it that all stacks, sheds, stables and outhouses, are secured from prairie fires. Collect all tools, as plows, harrows, hoes, etc., and see to it that they are kept under shelter. ' Transplant hardy fruit and deciduous ornamental trees ; let them be secured from the action of the wind. Throw up a conical bank a foot high for winter round all young trees, which will secure them perfectly from mice. Grape layers made the past season may be removed from the parent vine and kept by burying. Fix up your stables for horses and cat tle, and your -dwellings, for we shall cer tainly have cold weather before spring, and it is hard telling when it will commence. Lawrence Republican. The capability of the human system to resist extremes of heat and cold has been tested by various investigators, who have endured for several minutes at a time, heat ranging from 196 to 400 degrees or 180 degrees above the boiling point. Individ uals have frequently endured cold 50 degrees below zero without freezing any part of the body. The Baltimore election, of Wednesday, 13th ult., is stigmatiized as a farce by the Sun of that city. The "Americans" car ried 19 of the 20 wards, many bf them without serious opposition. The total "American" vote is 11,878, to 2,789 op posed. Last November, Fillmore had 16, 900 votes, Buchanan 9,871. It is said that a Democratic member of Congress, who was himself ready to offer 8200,000 for the Fort Snelling Reservation, and would have considered it a great prize at that, will move for an investigation of the late fraudulent sale. It is believed that the disclosures will be altogether richer than those of the Congressional corruption at the last session. " ! Prices Current. , Lawrence Market COEKKCTED WEEKIT.
