The Kansas Troubles – Missouri calling on her Volunteers.
ST. LOUIS, Friday, Jan. 7.
Governor STUART, of this State, transmitted yesterday to the Senate a Special Message, reciting the recent depredations committed by the Kansas banditti, under MONTGOMERY and BROWN, upon our citizens residing in the border counties, and asking for Legislative action in the matter. A bill was accordingly immediately reported, which authorizes the Governor to call out a volunteer force sufficient to protect persons and property in peril, and to repel all further attempts at invasion.
The bill appropriates $30,000 to defray expenses. It will probably pass to-day.
