Excerpt from Speech of Schuyler Colfax, of Indiana, in the House of Representatives: June 21, 1856 Before I leave this J udge - Lthe central figure as he is of the group of men in Kansas who are using the power of the Judiciary as it was used during the bloody assizes in England and the Reign of Terror in France, to enforce the decrees of tyranny - 11 must call attention to his charge to the last grand jury which he addressed in Kansas; and in which, instead of alluding to the destruction of property of Free State men by unauthorized mobs; to the tar ring and feathering, and other personal out rages, to which many of them had been sub jected; to the repeated invasions of the Terri tory by armed marauders, of which he had been a witness; and to the murders of unofl'ending Free State men, of which he could not have failed to hear; his virtuous desire to uphold the laws foundlvent in another direction the direction of persecution instead of proteo tion. I quote from this extraordinary charge, as published in' the National Intelligencer of this city, of June 5, 1856, the following extra ordinary paragraphs.
