Committer's bill waa read. It is an
"enabling" act, providing lor tbe aa
of the Territory of Dakota us
a whole as a State of the Union, w ben
an election shall have been held
under this act, and a constitution,
renuh'icin in form, shall have been
adepted by the people of anch Territo
ry. The substitute also prescribes in

Senator liatler then took tue n or

Hia'e when it bad the necessary con
ditions, bnt he denied that a territory
had any riht to organ ir a a State Gov
ernment. Congress alone, could au
thor! r. 8 the transition from a Territory
to a State, and the exercise ol that
power by any other body would be
bold usurpation. Senator Butler ar
gued at length in support of this
pro, oeition, and further contended
that Territories had no right to divide
themselves up at tbeir own plsasnre,
sod do as Dakota had done in this in
stance. As to the admission of Ken
tucky, Tennessee and Maine, he said
theee had been carried out of Territory
belonging to North Carolina, Virginia
and Massachusetts,tbree of the original
thirteen States, and under the consti
tution the consent of the Legislatures
of these States was all that was neces
sary, and was taken as tantamount to
an enabling act. In tbe case of Ar
kansas and Michigan, two politicul
titane, slavery and anti-slavery, were
approaching each other by converging
linea; Michigan represented one, Ar
kansas represented the o'her, and
both were taken into the Union in,
as Henator Itutler insisted, an un
constilutioifd manner. These cases
were cases CI compio.iiise attempts to
temporizs with the impending irre
pressible conflict, it would have been
better for the country if the issue had
been at that time met and tet' led, than
have postponed it to a time thirty
years ht'er, when the power and ca
pacity of tbe sections to straggle witu
each other had so largely increased.
Iowa, Miasouri, Wisconsin and JSe
vadu, be a'd, had tome into -the
Union under enabling acts. Slavery
was now dead. The people of the
Union were becoming more and more
homogoneoue. Thfl lime was smoothing
the asperities that came of conllir-t ; we
were happily at peace, our territories
were being occupied by intelligei.t rid
burdy pioneers. Why, then, depart
from sMj, time-honored constitutional
mlea fir the admission rf new mem
bers into the fimilycf Sta'.ee? ,.Waa
tbera a pressing iutica! exigency
lurking behind this movement which
Imnelled it f jrward with n'moat. un

hasten proceedings leet a change
might come which niiyht change the
political complexion m tne represent'
ativea sent I J the National Legls'n
lure? Ssna'or Butler could not die
bose his mind rf such a suspicion, and
thatasnan iudsment would be ren
dered if we n filled to ratify the pres
ent movement. Senator Butler in
aisted that the action of South Dakota
hnl been nil fa t'ir and void. Be-
sideere had received intimations f
fraudHu the proceWinga 'ukaA th
if crimination, recrimination and
rlnalsrn. Much divlsioi if opinion
prevailed in the Territory as to a divi
sion on tne line ct tne i my-sixtn par

Finally the Indians retreated to the
