There has been a general expression of opinion- among the Democratic journals throughout the State on the subject of adopting an independent treasury system Kit fur aa . nA Irnrtw it Vina mot with no opposition; butjt will hardly get through the campaign -without waking up some enemies among the banks and their friendsV The old Whig party fought with desperation against its adoption by the general government, and it is wot probable that,; their ,new name has changed their views; . .' -This system proposes to keep 4he money of the State in tho State Treasury,-and not permit thereunder any circumstances to be deposited with or loaned to-banks. The amount lost to the people of the State bjWguch deposits is an argument per fectly conclusive in favor of this system. Iri this coanty it is not probable thot even the nsed-to Je-Whij Republicans will yen tore to oppose it; in- some of the wenlthier oun ties f where banks are numerous they may. ; It works admirably in the TJ.

If they were in Heaven itself it is doubtful whether they would be satisfied with the government. , It appears that the inhabitants of Law rence, which is the hot-bed. of rebelliou in - the Territory, took it into; their heads to have another fight.

Important Proclamation of the Govern or of Kansas Eesiatancs to the Laws to be Put Down by Force. We invite attention to the following proclamation - of Governor Walker, of ivansas. it will be approved by every law and order citizen who is opposed to marchy and violence: PROCLAMATION, TO THE PEOPLE OP LAWRENCE. Leavenworth, Wednesday, July, 15, '51. I have learned that a considerable num popular vote, a charter for their local gov- lernment. A copy of that charter lias ing which with that granted by thcTerri- K . J ' Legislature, last winter, I find that they differ intentionally in many essential particulars. - The new charter, then, is set "P. nt only without any authority of law, but in direct and open defiance of an act m of the Territorial Legislature on the same subject. On this point your committee, whose views have been adopted by you, make the following statement: "Under ordinary circumstances the more regular method of proceeding would be to obtain a charter from the' Territorial au thorities. As the Territorial government, however, in no sense represents s.the peo- . of Kansag wa9 not elected "by t,iera, an(j can naTe nn r;gilt t0 legislate for them, we cannot accept a charter at its hands. And, as the State government has not as 7et aeemea it aavisaoie to me orgaaiza tion of local and municipal governments, we cannot obtain a charter from it There is, therefore, left us only the alter native of a charter springing, from the people, or a continuance in our nnorgan I: a Under the circumstances you have seen fit tQ instractns to preseut a charter, hav ng discussed its provisions in a prelimi nary assemblage, and now propose to sub mit it to a full vote of the people for ap proval or rejection." it will be perceived that the authority of the Territorial trovernment is here dis tinctly denied, and while that of the so- called btate government is acknowledged, 11 18 conceoeii mat no cnarter nas oeen craated by them.

J establish insurrectionary governments, thereby placing the people of this Territo ry, so far as in your power, in open con flict with the Government of the United States The more considerable portion of your party having induced your Topeka Legis lature to enact the laws urged by you, creating municipal government, yon have even in defiance of their authority, which yon profess to acknowledge, ptoceeded to create such a government for Lawrence, and are now urging other localities to pursue a similar course. Your evident purpose is thus to involve the whole Ter- ritory in insurrection, and to renew the scenes of bloodshed and civil war. Upon you, then, must rest all the guilt and re sponsibility of this contemplated revolu tion. You will be justly chargable in law and in conscience with all the blood that may be shed in this contest, and upon you must fall the punishment You have elected your officers under this charter, and instructed them to enter upon the immediate discharge of their du ties, including the adoption of ordinances and the execution thereof, under an au thority having in itself no legal existence land established in direct defiance of the Government of the. United States From all these facts, it is obvious if you are permitted to proceed, and especially if yonr example should be followed as urg- e! b7 yu ia oer ; places, " that for ai practical purposes, in many important particulars, the Territorial government wil be overthrown. The charters granted by tne Territorial government for 'similar purposes -will be disregarded," and the Justices of the Peace . and other officers acting under their authority will be brought necessarily into conflict and col lifiion with the so-called officers claiming t0 act under different authority. Tue Territory will thus be Involved in inextricable confusion and litigation; th va'ue of your property be greatly depre ciated; yourtitles, transfers, transactions contracts will subjected to endless and costiy disputes, and all will suffer from this insurrection, except the lawyers who have stimulated thi3 movement. A govern founded on insurrection and usur 9ivil war will be renewed throrighout our hunts. . If your authority to act in this wanner ior me cuy oi ijawrence is per J mitted, a similar authority .must be aa knowletlged in every other city,' town or counts, whichnul result m inevitable and m'ost disaatrods conflict; and if successful the Territorial government be overthrown in detail, as is your present purpose". You were distinctly informed in my m- angural address of luylast, that the val idity of the Territorial laws was acknowl edged by the Government of the United States, and that they must and would be carried into execution under my oath of office and the instructions of the President of the United States. The same informa tion was repeated in various addresses made by me throughout the Territory.' At the same time, every assurance was given you that the rights of the people of this Territory, uuder the lawjo establish their own State : government and frame their own forms prescribed by the Govern ment of your country, would be acknowl edged and protected. If laws have been enacted by the Terri torial legislature which are disapproved of by a majority of the people of the Tern tory, the mode in which they could elect a new Territorial Legislature and repeal those laws was also designated. If there are any grievances of which you have any just right to complain, the lawful, peace ful manner iu which you could remove them, in subordination to tho government of your country, was also, pointed out. ' You have," however, chosen to disregard the laws of Congress and of the Territorial government created by it, and while pro fessing to acknowledge a State govern ment rejected by Congress, and which can therefore not exist, only by a successful rebellion, and exacting from all your offi cers the perilous and sacrilegious oath to support the so-called State Constitu tion; yet you have even in dcGance of the so-called State Legislature, which refuses to grant you a charter, proceeded to ere ate a local government of your own, based only upon insurrection and revolution. he very oath which you require from all your officers to support your so-called To pesa constitution, is vioiaieu in me very ... .... 1 . i J : act of puttinc in orcration a charter re jected even by me.m. rebellion Bo iniquitous, and necessa rily involving 6uch awful consequences, has never before . disgraced any age or country. ' Permit me to call your attention, as still claiming to be citizens of the United States,to the results of your revolutionary proceedings. You are inaugurating rebel- ion and revolution: you are disregarding the laws of Congress and of the Territori al government, and defying their authori ty; you are. conspiring to overthrow the Government of the United btates m this Territory.. ' Your purpose if earned into effect in the mode, designated by you, by putting your laws forcibly into execution, would involve you iu the guilt and crime of trea son. You stand now, fellow-citizens, up on, the brink of. an awful precipice, and it becomes my duty to warn you ere you take the futal leap into the gulf below. If your proceedings are not arrested, you will necessarily destroy the peace thisTer ritory and involve it in all the horrors of civil war. I warn you, then, belore it is too late, to recede to the perilous position in which you now stand. I appeal once more to your reason and patriotism. I -ask you in the name of our common country, m the name of the Oon stitution and of the Union, to desist from this rebellion. I appeal once more to your love of country, to your regard for its peace, prosperity and reputation, to your affection for your.wives and children and to all these patriotic motives which ought to influence American citizens, to abandon this contemplated resolution. If you hare wrongs, redress them through the peaceful instrumentality of tne ballot-box, in the mode prescribed by the laws of your country. As all arguments heretofore so otten addressed by me to you have failed as yet to produce any effect upon you, I have deemed it necessary for your safety, and that of the Territory, and to save you from the perilous consequences of your own acts, under the authority vested in me by the President of- the United States, to or der an adequate force of the troops ofthe United States into, your immediate vicin age, to perform the painful duty of arrest ing your revolutionary proceedings. .Let me implore you not to compell me to ap peal to that military power which is re quired in the last resort, to protect the Government of your country. ; You can not carry your rebellious purposes into effect without coming into unavoidable and open conflict with the troops and government of the United States. - - Let me adjure yon, men, once wore, iu abandon these proceedings before you in volve yourselves in the" crime of treason, and subiect the people of the city of Law rence to all the horrors and calamities of insurrection and civil war. If yon - will now desist fromthe projected revolution, the past will be forgotten as far as prac ticable; but if you persist in passing these laws and carrying ; them into execution, thus defying and superceding the govern ment of your couutry, the deplorable con sequences must be upon your heads and those of your associates. It will be my purpose, if you still persist, to spare all bloodshed as far as practicable, and sub ject the leaders and projectors of this rev olutionary movement to -the punishment prescribed by the law.: I will accompany the troops to Lawrence with a view to pre vent, if possible, any " conflict, and in the sincere hope that the revolutionary move ineut contemplated by you, and now so nearly accomplished, will, ere it is too late, be abandoned by you. ; ; . If you can be influenced by no other motives, the evident fact that the power of the Government ?s adequate to prevent the accomplishment., of your purpose, should induce you to 1 desist from these proceedings' x ' ' ' iThat the same . overruling Providence who hold3 in his hands the destiny of our beloved country, may now incline your hearts to peace, and influence you to aban doh this fatal " enterprise," is the sincere wish of your fellow-citizen.

We take the following from the New York Tribune: ' The political atmosphere," writes a Hungarian refugee, in a private letter, dated Loudon, July 7, "becomes again more electric." Frnnce seems to awaken to political life, and people become once more hopeful in old Europe." This is said with reference to a private matter, but it is not the less significant. The re sult of the second election in Paris is the muffled but unequivocal sounding of the tocsin. "To talk of what the French Provinces think," once observed the witty Heine, "is like speaking of what a man's legs think." -Intellectually, politically, Paris is France; and Paris has now dear ly pronounced against ' the Napoleonic usurpation and despotism. Of the eight Deputies chosen to represent Paris prop er, five are unequivocal Republicans, head ed by General Cavaignac. The three dis tricts which have just voted a second time have given an aggregate opposition ma jority of more than 3,000. They gave little or none at the former trial. This gain, in defiance of the immense patro nage and power of Imperialism in Paris, is astounding. Of the thirty thousand Napoleonic voters," probably a full half are dependent on the favor of the Gov ernment, while the opposition have no hope, of office or patronage. Could a verdict be more decisive? ; Italy isconvulsed by Ilepublican throes, though to what purpose cannot yet be de termined. Despotism in that unhappy lacd rests on foreign bayonets but for how long? ' - -:- v- The Trouble in. the Minnesota Consti tutional Conventon Confliolng Or ganization. ; : ' '.; The telegraph . has apprised us that there has been a split in the Minnesota Constitutional Convention. The Demo crats and the Black Republican members each organizing separately. The great point of difference, according to the Min nesota Pioneer, was this : . Whose duty or privilege was it to call the convention to order and preside until a temporary organization should be, ef fected. The Democrats claimed that Sec retary Chase was the proper individual, and are fully sustained in that position by precedents, the only rule governing such matters in the absence of positive legal enactment. The Wisconsin and Iowa Constitutional Conventions Iwere both presided over until a temporary organiza tion had been effected, by the Secretaries of those Territories, notwithstanding there was no provision of this character in the acts authorizing the "conventions to be held. In States where conventions are held for the purpose of forming new con stitutions, the Secretary of State is uni versally acknowledged as the proper offi cer to call the body to order. We could cite precedents of this character in almost every State in the Union. ; , - , : . Price of New Wheat. We . have heard of ao sales .of new wheat in this vicinity.
