DOUGLAS AND POPULAR SOVEREIGNTY. SPEECH...IN HAMPDEN HALL, SPRINGFIELD, MASS, JANUARY 4, 1860.

[Washington: 1860]. 8pp. Light wear, Very Good.

The Wisconsin German-American, whose advocacy was important in securing German immigrants to the Republican Party, denounces Douglas for destroying the repose that the Missouri Compromise and Compromise of 1850 had brought to the slavery question. As the result of his Popular Sovereignty doctrine, and its application to the Kansas Territory, "the struggle grows fiercer than ever, and the difficulties ripen into a crisis." But "this does not disturb him. He sends forth manifesto upon manifesto."
