Jackson was now satisfied that the whole of northern Missouri was lost to the cause of secession, and he endeavored to concentrate all the armed disloyal citizens, with McCulloch's men, in the southwestern part of the commonwealth. Assured by the aspect of affairs, and conciliatory and assuring proclamations from both General Lyon and Colonel Boernstein, the people became quieted, and the loyal State convention was called to assemble at Jefferson City on July 22, 1861.

a convention of the States to propose amendments to the Constitution would be useful in restoring peace and quiet to the country; that an attempt to coerce the submission of the seceding States, or the employment of military force by the seceding States to assail the government of the United States, would inevitably lead to civil war; and earnestly entreated the national government and the Confederates to stay the arms of military power. The convention substantially adopted this report, March 19; and an amendment was agreed to recommending the withdrawal of the National troops from the forts within the borders of the seceding States where there is danger of collision between the State and National troops.
