Full Text Transcription

We furnish our readers to-day with the first half of Senator Douglas' speech on the territorial bill. The remainder will be given to-morrow. -- As a terrific excoriation of the authors of the late abolition address, and as a conclusive argument on the main question, it cannot be surpassed. It is, indeed, overwhelming - scattering to the winds the positions assumed by the opponents of the measure, and placing the measure itself on the elevated ground of constitutional and popular right.

We ask every citizen, be he democrat, whig, or abolitionist, to read this speech.
