Kansas suffers on; but the day of her deliverance is near at hand, when she will be clothed with sovereignty, and become the equal of every other state in the Union.—For years her people have been the subjects of slander; commencing with the majority report to the Senate by Stephen A. Douglas, during the winter ’55 and ’56. That report was lengthy, and was carefully prepared by the author, with a view to secure for himself the support of the South at the Cincinnati Convention. It was a base fabrication in nearly all its parts, and clearly proved that Douglas was bankrupt in manhood, and was the willing and suppliant tool of slavery. It was a wanton calumny upon many of his early friends and supporters. When read by him in the Senate Chamber, it excited disgust even in the minds of the Southern members. False as was this report, Kansas has yet had no opportunity, through her agents, to denounce it.

Still more recently has Kansas been assailed by a slaveholding Senator, because she asks to be accepted into the Union as a free state. This lord of the lash, and knight of the bowie knife, assumed the right to malign Kansas, and no voice of her’s can espouse her cause, and defend her from the foul aspersion.

But it will soon be otherwise. Kansas will feel it her right to rebuke these assaults, when she can do so through her chosen agents, representing that sovereignty which she has thus far been denied.

It must be a satisfaction to the early settlers of Kansas, to anticipate the day when our State shall stand upon full equality with the other States of the confederacy. And to those who well know the perversion of Kansas affairs made by Douglas and others, it must be highly gratifying to see the party which endorsed the falsehoods, scattered into fragments, and their principal author engaged in a hopeless struggle for Presidential honors. Justice is, at length, about to overtake him.—False to the truth of our history; false to the policy of the patriot fathers; false to the repeated practices of the government; false to the rights of free labor; false to friends; Stephen A. Douglas goes down to his political grave. He might have been President; but he was too anxious to do the dirty work of the slave power. He forced upon the country the Kansas agitation, by which he expected to thrive; but it has been the cause of his overthrow.
