THE BRITISH TREATY.
86pp, bound in attractive modern plain wrappers. Tanned, scattered fox, Good+. Dedicated "To Those Members of Congress Who Have the Sense to Perceive and the Spirit to Pursue the True Interests of their Country," the pamphlet attacks English invasions of American sovereignty.

The author predicts, correctly, that the British would offer reparations and thus avoid war over the incident; and offers unflattering opinions on Jefferson-- "a schemer, perpetually occupied with some strange out-of-the-way project"-- and Madison, "a man of feeble mind."

The charges against the Society were leveled in a Senate Report issued by the Chairman [Stephen A. Douglas] of the Committee on Territories. The Society, says the Executive Committee, does not promote "interference with the internal affairs and domestic concerns of the Territory;" it "has done what it could, in a peaceable, legal, and constitutional way, to aid in the settlement of Kansas by a population of freemen."
