[Pointing Finger] We publish in a Supplement to this morning's TIMES the speech recently made by Mr. Sumner in the Senate of the United States upon the affairs of Kansas, -- together with the debate which followed between him and Senators Cass, Douglas and Mason. Mr. Sumner's speech is one of the ablest ever made in the body of which he is a useful and honorable member. It presents the whole case of Kansas, especially so far as it is connected with the action of the Federal Government, more clearly and strongly than has been done in any other document. Its tone is sharp and controversial; -- and Mr. S. certainly does not shrink from speaking of those, in the Senate and elsewhere, who have urged opposite sentiments and advised or defended the acts of the Pro-Slavery propaganda in regard to Kansas, in very decisive and emphatic terms. But he does not in any instance, -- except in his rejoinder to Mr. Douglas, -- transcend the limits of Parliamentary propriety or afford any ground whatever for the imputations of personality which have been so freely lavished upon him by the Pro-Slavery press. The most fastidious reader will search in vain for anything which could give the slightest color of just provocation for the brutal outrage of Brooks. We are confident the debate will be read with general interest.
