Resolved, Thai the President of the United
Stnte-> be requested to communicate to the Senate
nil it.formation in the posession of the Executive
in respect to the disturbances in the Territory of

thai he be further requested to inform the Senate
by what authority armed men from the State of
Missouri were marched into the Territory of
Kriikss. npaimt the peace and go-d order of the
Mtiti Territory, and also what steps have been
tak? n by the Executive to prevent these outrages
upon the legal rights of the people of that Terri
tory; and what persona hoi ling office under Ex
ecutive appointment have participated in these
acts, and to what extent.
Mr. CLAY moved that it be indefinitely post
Mr. WILSON expressed the hope thst such a
course would not be pursued. It was very desir
able that the Senate should have the information
called for by the resolution
Mr. WELLER thought ihe resolution bad
better be postponed. The Executive had no
special information not already in the possession
of the Senate
Mr. FESSENDEN contended that the Senate
bad no information other than that derived from
public rumor and the public press The President
bad called their attention to the doingsin K?n?as;
nnd it was fair to infer that the President had not
acted upon rumor, but had information of an au
thentic data, which it was desirable that the
Senate should also have
Mr. YULEE thought there was no necesiiy for
the passage of the resolution, as the subject was
under investiiraiion by the Committee on Territo
ries. who could call on the President for any
necessary information touching the snbject
Mr. OKYEK had no other objection to the
resolution than that it was not sufficiently enlarged,
lmt assumed aa a fact that men from the State of
Miasouri had been marched into the Territory of
Kansas for the purpose of taking possession of
ssid Territory He thought the difficulties had
grown out of the doings of the Emigrsnt Aid
Society, who had sought to take possession of the
Territory and exclude from it others who bad a j
like right with themselves That men had gone
there from V*tssouri for the purjiose of settling he
was sware. but that they went there armed for the
purpose of controlling the elections he did pot
believe. Why had there not been societies for
the settlement of Nebraska. Utah, New Mexico,
Mr. FESSENDEN contended that the sole
object of the resolution was to have any informa
tion in the possession of the Executive, snd spoke
of the excitement in the public anind in relstion to
the subject, snd thst it was due to the occasion
that they should have communicated to them all
the facts in the hands of the President.
Mr. TOUCEY hoped that the resolution wonld
be adopted, bat in proper form, calling on the
President for any information in his possession re
lating <o the afTurs in Ksnsas. He thought Coa
gress shou'd direct its attention to the matter snd
come to the aid of the Executive in sustsimng
ihe laws. He approve! of the whole course of
the President; and, so long as we bad a Constitu
tion snd lavs, it waa the duty of all to sustain
them. He thought the subject had better be post
poned, a? the Senator from South Carolina,(Mr.

Mr CLAY 1?ithdrew his motion to postpone in

Mr. WILSON avowed bfa willingness to allow
the snbject to go over, and that it should be so

pleased, as his object was merely to obtain the
The farther consideration was postponed until
