No Title.

New York, Tribune [Whig]

(24 January 1854)

Mr. Douglas made his appearance yesterday in the Senate, riding two horses abreast. He goes now for a split of Nebraska, and for the making of two territories where there are not half people enough to form one. Just what he proposes to do we do not learn. But we judge he is after keeping up the equilibrium of things by making a slave and a free State out of his two proposed territories of Nebraska and Kansas. The Little Giant is rolling himself in the drift too early. He will be so bemired before 1856, that he will lose all chance of being touched by anybody. However, let him wallow. We are content if he is.
