    LECOMPTON TO BE REJECTED, CERTAIN AND SURE. – The Washington Union of Saturday, in a general article on “What the administration has done,” says that “not only have the sections lost all their morbid solicitude to force Kansas into the Union as a slave or free State, but Kansas herself has been completely cured of her impatience to enter the confederacy, and will probably vote next (this) Monday week to remain a Territory for several years to come.” This means that she will reject the Lecompton constitution; and we presume this opinion was derived from Governor Denver during his late visit at Washington. With regard, however, to her voting to “remain a Territory for several years to come,” we apprehend that that is a gray horse of another color. While there is a rag of this Kansas agitation to swear by, we may rest assured that our Kansas shriekers will keep it flaunting in the wind; and so all hands would do well to prepare for another ventilation of the subject with the re-assembling of Congress.
