—Senator Douglas' resolutions were up.
Senator Bayard, of Delaware, continued his remarks. He discussed the cause which had led to the withdrawal of seven States, among which was the formation and triumph of a sectional party, recognizing the equality of all, without regard to race, and hostile to the existence of slavery. Their ultimate purpose was to extinguish it by indirect action on the part of the Federal Government.
After an Executive session, adjourned.
