This article from the Democratic, pro-South, New York Herald describes debate in Congress over Kansas’ admission as a state, particularly through criticism of the position of Senator Joshua R. Giddings. The Herald holds that Giddings’ criticism of the Buchanan administration and of ‘slave power’ is nonsense. The Herald explains that slavery will die out as slaveholding states become outnumbered by free states. (By Brendan Boston)
