"Squatter Sovereignty" says the oracle I of Democracy, tho grea' Michlgander Il allowing tho aquattera in a territory to re gulate their own domestic, institutions in their own way. Thut loewi fair it snumh fair it tmeib fair it faciei fair but it i.j nevertheless, tin arrant humbug, as the sequel shows. The territory ol Kansas wat 'erected with "his doctrine prominent in iti net of incorporation, so 10 speak. " Squat ter sovereignty" was made tho watchword in two campaigns in Ohio, and it come off ; conquered. Popular sovereignty knocked tho hreuth out of it, and, having lost the prestige of its grsatness, it now shows its real colors in Kanaaa, There the people becoming weary of the officious kindness ' of Mi$$ouriant, concluded it was time u j try how "squatter sovereignty" worked, and , forthwith took mutters into their own hands. , This wai '-squatter sovereignty " in Cluneal ! but tiio ruling powers in Kansas knew that , this principle was onlv intended to he talkail about, not ac'ed on, nnJ they forthwltl I send abroad lor armed MM to come in aur ,'ocruvh out" this evidence of "squatter I0V ' irelgnty" in action. Tho squatters nre tc ; bo taught a lesson they must learn thul th incorporation of tkijt doctrine into the territorial net was merely intended as n fUM, and not to bo tnkeu in earnest.
