SECRETARY STANTON’S ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE OF THE TERRITORY.
QUINDARO, K. T., Saturday, April 25.
Secretary STANTON has published an address to the people of Kansas, in the Lecompton Union. He says the Administration has recognized the authority of the Territorial Legislature and the validity of the Territorial laws, and has especially recognized the act providing for a Constitutional Convention. He presumes that the Convention will submit the vital question of the domestic institutions of the State for the subsequent vote of the people, and thinks that Congress will then admit the Territory immediately into the Union as a State. He recommends a general amnesty for past prosecutions, and expects the presence of Gov. WALKER about the middle of May.
