Senate. Mr. Trumbull introduced his
hill to restore pence mid order in Kansas, by
proposing to bring it under the Territorial
Government of Nebraska, Trumbull ex
plained the only object of his bill was to
extend the tcnitorial government of Ne
braska over Kansas, and abolish tho pres
eul Government of the latter territory, and
the laws made by that legUlaturo. He
thought this propnsiiion worthy of some
consideration, at there was a staio of things
now existing in Kansas which nit good men
must deplore. He did not care about hav
ing tho bill referred, us thai would with
draw ii from tho consideration of the Sen
ate. Duuirlas honed the bill would bare
lerred to the Commiitce on Territories,
who would report on ft at an early day,
It Involved some gravo questions, but he
was find to seo the opponents of tho No
braska bill wore beginning to acknowledge
tho principles of that measure. The law
of Nebraska were mado bv the people of
Nebraska, and the laws of Kansas by tho
people of Kansas but the proosiiion now
is to abolish the laws made by the people of
Kansas for their own Government, and
place them under tho laws of Nebraska,
which they had no volcein making. Trum
bull said so far from acknowledging the
principles of the Nebraska bill, he did not
believe there was any principle in it. It
was understood ono way at the North and
another way at tho South, but ho would
admit this bill was such a proposition at he
should prefer. He regarded the repeal of
i lie Missouri Compromise as the cause of
all the mischief, and would be glad to re.
store thin" to their former posi'ion, but
this was a temporary expedient, not intend
ed to carry out his own wishes fully.
Douglas said he was as anxious as his
colleague to have peace and quietness re
stored to Kansas, and was also willing to
yie'd something, but he would yield what
some people of Kansas refused to implicit
ob.-dietice to the laws of the land. If every
body would do this there would be no dif
ficulty iu Kansas or anywhere else, but if
uxiead of compelling the rioters and rebel
to submit to the laws, they nete to be
placed under the laws of another tcrritoiy,
the effect would bo to extend the strife nod
turmoil to Nebraska. Likewise ho was un
willing to inflict upon Nebraska the curses
of strife and mob violence that exist iu
Kansas. The people of Nebraska have
obeyed the law and they have peace. In
Kansas the law has been trampled under
foot nnd there was strife. A holitionists and
Emigrant Aid Societies had not interfered
Nebraska to prevent tho terms and
meaning of the law or Congress, and the
very fact that both Territories were created
under ono act, and that in one the ro was
peace and quieiness, and in the other strife
and controveisy, shows the fault is not in
the law. It is in foreign interference
Strife nnd violence were the fruit of that in
terference, but there had been no interfer
ence in Nebraska, and pence and harmony
were the natural consequences. If his col-
eague thought the Nebraska bill was un
derstood differently in the North and the
Souih he had better read Ihe proceedings
of the Democratic National Convention.
He would find the principles of the Demo
cratic party proclaimed North, East South
and West. Everywhero alike proclaimed
by unanimous vote. Every State in the
Union was all true.
The Democrats had no trouble in con
structing it. Nobody had any trouble, ex
cept tho-e who were opposed to it who
were determined not to bo satisfied. Tho
principles of that bill were embodied iu the
compromii-e nf 1850, nnd they were confirm
ed by the election of Pierce in '52.
Trumbull replied that the thing wascov.
ered up by the Cincirnati Convention vry
much as it was in the Nebraska bill, The
language was ambiguous, and. each sec
tion understood it to su'.'t ;u own views.

Senate. Mr. Crittenden submitted a
resolution requesting the President, in view
of the dfricultie existing in Kamaa, and
the employment cf tho military forco for
'the restoration of law, peace and harmony

Senate, June 23. Mr. Toombs, of Ga.,
gave notice of his intention to introduce a
bill to take the census of Kansas, to pro
tect the exorcise of the elective franchise
in that Territory, and to provide for calling
Convention to form a constitution, pre
paratory to the admission of Kansas into
the Union. Mr. Toombs desired to have
some complete and filial measures adopted
for pacification in that Territory. In or
der to effect this the census should first bo
taken. This would lake away all motivo
for either section of the Union to attempt
to force people into Kansas and thereby
endanger the peace of tho country, in or
der to promote a sectional advantage by
having institutions made for the people of
the Territory by a population who have no
interest in the question. The bill also
proposes to protect the freedom of the bal
lot box, nnd to that end submits such ques
tions to five cmrnimsioneru to bo selected
by the President, who shall cause an enu-
meration to bo made, for the purpose, firs'..
of having a proper distribution of repro-
lentatioii, so as to give fair and equal rep
resentation to the population verv un-
qnally distributed over the Territory :
and secondly, for the purpose of having a
registry of all oona fide unabitantt of the
Territory. The bill provides that all male
inhabi'anis over twenty-one 'years of age
shall be tccistered as letial voters, and
Kf.nsas bo admitted into tho Union as a
State with ns little delay as practicable.
As soon a a census is taken, and it shall
be ascertained who are real inhabitants of
Kansas, they shall proceed forthwith to
election of delegates to a Convention to
form a State constitution. This election
he would have take place on the first Tues
day in November. That would give suf
ficient time, and allow four months' resi
dence to iuhabitnntx, and would come on a
day w hen the people of the different Stales
would be prevented, in consequence of be
ing occupied with the Presidential election,
from even attempting to defeat the real
wi.-hes of ihe people of Kansas by inter
fering with their election. This measure
was liable, he said, to but one objection,
and thai not of principle nor expediency.
It was solely as to the small number of in
habitants there. But that objection was
waived by a considerable 'portion of the
Senate and by a very large part of the
people. Believing this proposition would
meet with a favorable recptioo and be
promotive of good, he .should at an early
day ask leave to introduce the bill.

it "cowardly to make a scapegoat of Mr.

Ihe Morning Post uses the American

that to involve some fifty orsixiy millions

clear that, like the removal nfonenf thoso
