The Constitution will, us it should, constitute ?ie sheet*

of many who were not. as well as tho-?o who were, -ndir '
accusation,??was a harefur?*d jolitictd operulion, wholly in- I
excusable on ><-a'. grounds. But thr testimony had been |
take* to be published?to stimulate Party excitement, and
create Party capital. The Attorney General do.x not m'-a
lion that this testimony wa- paroled before publication?
that ?ome oi it which did uot answer the purpose of the
Conspirators ws? rupprcttrd Ly them. We have tLe oath
of at least one w:uie-s. that h;s testimony* was <c\ garhled ]
