THE QUESTION OF EMANCIPATION IN MISSOURI — AFFRAY IN KANSAS.

ST. LOUIS, Friday, Feb. 12.

The Senate on Tuesday passed, by 25 to 4, a resolution declaring the emancipation of slaves in that State not only impracticable, but any movement towards it impolitic, unwise, and unjust, and that it should be discountenanced by the people.

The House yesterday passed the Senate’s resolution against the emancipation of slaves by a vote of 107 to 69.

The Kansas correspondent of the Democrat reports that a rencontre had taken place at Tecumseh between Judge ELMORE and the correspondent of the National Era, named KAZIA. Both parties were wounded, but not dangerously.
