On the 6tt page of this paper i the speech of Mr. Hammond, of South Car olina, on the admission of Kansas, with tha Lecompton Constitution, delivered 4a the Senate, a few day since. We give it entire, as published in the Wash ington Globe, corrected and revised by himself. We wish our readers to look at the Southern side of tbe great question which now agitates the county, and to note in what light northern laboring men are viewed by a southern slaveholder, and he the exponent, par-excellence, of southern views, in the Senate of the Uni ted States. Mr. Hammond is an orator, and his speech is more remarkable for rhetorical flourishes, than reliable in facts and fig ures, especially wfctn contrasting the northern and sonthern states. In our next paper we shall give Sena tor Wade's speech in answer to Mr. Hammond, which is a complete and thorough refutation of the arguments of...
