Mr. PKdIDXBT AlfO FLL0ff CITIZENS : The Union party of Kansas has made more sacrifices of blood and treasure during the late war than any other loyal State, in pro portion to its numbers. The Union party of Kansas contributed more toward mould in? publio opinion and directing the poli cy which controlled that war. than the Union party of any other loyal State. By its eagaeity and sacrifices it baa, in my opinion, placed itself in so exalted a posi tion that no one man of the party is so pre eminent that be is authorized to epeak for or commit that party. Bettering this, I have come to you for the purpose of consulting with you upon tbe great questions upon which I will, in a few days, be called upon to vote.

No local bill on any, in which any member or number of members feel a particular interest are permitted -to pas, there being force enough to bold them with the expectation of "swapping."
