—The Albany Atlas and Argus publishes an article on the danger to the country and the remedy, proposing that Lincoln's administration shall acquiesce in the Constitution as settled by the Supreme Court, which puts Southern property upon in equal footing in the Territories, and also that the following amendments be made to the Constitution.

That Congress may establish governments for the Territories, and any Territory having a population equal to the constituency of one member of Congress, and having adopted, by the vote of the citizens resident therein, a constitution in the republican form, may be admitted by Congress into the Union as a State.

That neither Congress nor the people of a Territory, during its Territorial condition, shall by legislation or otherwise, annul or impair the rights of property recognized by the laws of any of the States.
