See What the Democratio Party in. the Statea think. .11 , We copy the following from the Cincinnati Daily Inquirer of the 21st tvit. The Inquirer is one of the ablest and most ardent supporters of the presont Administration and the Democratic party, and reflects their sontiments: A Goon Suoarcsno-s. The St. Louis Republican, in noticing tho treasonous resistance to the laws in Kanzas, which has called forth tho late proclamation of Governor Wal ker, very appropriately says : " If Governor Walker would pro ceed at once to hang some half-dozen plotters of treason in Kanzas, such as Lane, Robinson, Parrott and two or three otherB, he would remove at once the chief cause of difficulty thoro. The ' poople, as a body, are satisfied with Governor Walker and his administration, and do not care a rush for tho Topoka Legislature and Convention with its tomfooleries and absurdities. We reiterate what we have bo...
