PROCEEDINGS OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION.
ST. LOUIS, Thursday, Nov. 12.
The Lecompton correspondent of the Republican says that a majority of the Convention, headed by CALHOUN, MOORE AND HENDERSON, propose to submit the Constitution to the people in the following form, viz.: A Constitution with Slavery and a Constitution without Slavery, the vote to be taken about the 20th of December, and every actual resident at that time to be allowed to vote.
The Lawrence correspondent of the Democrat says that the Constitutional Convention would probably adjourn on the 7th, and that the Constitution will endorse the Dred Scott decision, the Fugitive Slave Law, etc. A proposition for the establishment of a Provisional Government was before the Convention. The Pro-Slavery clause received only four dissenting votes. This clause is the only one which will be submitted to the people, so that no chance is given to vote down the Constitution.
A rumor was current at Leavenworth that Governor WALKER, in conjunction with GEO. A. SANDERS, had purchased several hundred acres of land for the Leavenworth Military reservation at a nominal figure.
