Full Text Transcription

On Monday last Senator DOUGLAS made a powerful speech in vindication of the Nebraska bill, which has excited so much wrath on the part of the Abolitionists, and threatens to renew the slavery agitation. He completely shattered the propositions put forward in the late address of Messrs. CHASE, SUMNER and Co., and handled those gentlemen rather severely for their strictures upon the bill. Our limits forbid any further notice of this effort to-day. We will recur to it again.
