Emancipation Convention.

This body was still debating yesterday when the Louisville coach left Frankfort. The result of its proceedings will not be known in detail in this city until tomorrow evening. They will, however, probably recommend their friends to raise the question of prohibiting the further ther importation of slaves, and that of submitting the question of emancipation to a vote of the people after the new constitution shall be adopted. We give below the names of the members of the convention. They include some of the ablest men in the State, and as a whole it is a body of intelligence and respectability:

Convention of the Friends of Emancipation in Kentucky.

...Mercer County: Frank. Ballinger, Moreau B. Pulliam, O.S. Poston, Geo. Slavens...
