The Antagonism between the Administration and Governor Walker – Effect in Congress

Special Dispatch to the New-York Times

Washington, Sunday, Nov. 29.

The interview between the President and Gov. Walker yesterday, resulted in no change in their positions on the Kansas question. Walker is immovable in his bold stand for the rights of self-government.

The President is seriously concerned because of its thickening difficulties, but indicates no disposition to yield to Walker’s views.

The near approach of the meeting of Congress complicates affairs. Orr is the Administration candidate for Speaker of the House. If the President continues firm in the support of the Kansas Convention, the effect it is calculated will be damaging to Orr among the Northern men, and if the Executive flinches in the least, the Southern distrust of Orr as a candidate will be greatly enhanced; for, as a matter of course, the Administration Speaker is bound by engagement to support its policy. Orr is now here, electioneering industriously.
