Dar general Denver, the new Gover
nor of Kansas, it is affirmed, has declared
openly his approval of the course of Wal
ker and Stanton, and that the Admini.dra
tion is mistaken if it supposes he will not
follow their example. At the urgent re•
quest of a large party of free State men
from Lawrence, Governor Denver has
given up to them 'he arms taken by Gov
ernor Geary during his administration,
from the large body of immigrants who
reached Koons by the northern route.
General li'dridge gave a bond that They
should not be used for ten days, which of
course includes the election on the 4th.
The militia act passed by the Kansas
legislature, and also the other acts passed
over the Governor's vetoes, tailed to be

strongly of Commodore Paulding's letter,

the Southern majority in the Cabinet dis
approve of the Commodore's act.
The St. Louis Evening News, the State
organ of the American party in Missouri,
openly approves of the armed movements
of the free State men in Kansas. It pub

following paragraph is worthy of note:
