THE KANSAS QUESTION.
What is the most distinctive feature
of the Kansas and Nebrafika act?
Simply a vindication of the principles
of the corpyomise measures, advoca-

was fierce and incessant. They kept
no faith even in that one-sided measure
and replica it in all ther associations
and conventions in their party con
claves, their speeches, and their pub
lic acts cf every character. As long
aa it lasted they denounced il as the
cure of the land, against which they1
said they were jeompclled, by their'
grieved conscience,lo bear testimony.
In 1850 the pablic men from the slave-
holding State proposed, as a measure
of final adjustment and pacitieawou,
to run the line of 33 30 to the Pacifiu.
The question was tried in Congress,
and rejected by a compact and nearly
united vote ot the non-slaveholuing
States. The South was not inclined
to complain cipttously of this. Laying

we entertain io doubt, it had no single
element of political philosophy or prac
tical statestiianship to recommend it.

fully create pressure ol excitement,
suddenly started by .sectional prejudice
and animosity, to establish an arbi
trary geographical line as applicable
to a social question. It was, how
ever, repudiated by real sentiment of
the North end the. South. The love
ol the Union, deep and strong amongst
the good men on both sides, alone sus-
tide would roil on, and' no power
could stay it, A large and increasing
population would pass into that vast
fertile region, and the only question
was, Shall they be their with or without-
law?; Had Congress any moral
discretion in the matter? Was it nut
their clear duty to provide for what
they should have had no inclinetioirto

supposed that, under such circumstan

to whom we have before advened
thought not. They were compelled
to resort to some other diuniiive mea-

We reply il has not been reopened,

No just and patriotic man can deny it.
Our countrymen were invited to no
new solution of a difficult pioblem
no new path in our career of advance
ment and greatness was suggested to
them. But we took a princiole readv
furnished to our hands, and which
was fundamental in our institutions.
Il is in vain to say tiat the Kansas
and Nebraska issue was a reopening
of the slavery agitation. It is false to
say that it was the cause of it. We do
not deny that it was the leading poli
tical incident seized upon bv the artfu
and ambitious for evil nuruoses. but
history afhrms that an occasion has
never been wanting for the last thirty
years for all the disturbances upon this
subject which lanalicism could pro
uuce. ihe pretence tor it has been
found, at ditierent times, in every
change and color of political events,
and in all sets ol circumstances. But
there has been no change in the pur
poses of. those who really desire to
overthrow the constitution, and to
make us. instead of being a people
