by any other name, would not operate as
a concealment, innocent or fraudulent

dous speculations, constitute one of the
primary causes of bis defalcat ions to the
CAUSE 2. Culpable disregard of law,
and neglect of otficial duty, by the late na

Conclusions of the Committee.
1st. That the late naval offier at the
port of New York throughout the term of
his service, fromt 1829 to 1838, wholly dis
regarded the requirements qflaw prescri
hing-the duties of his offee.

check on the accounts of the collector.

the late collector of New York.

neglect of official duty, by the Pirst Audi
tor of the Treasury.
Conclusions of the Committee.
1st. That the first \nditor of the Treas.

ly with the vouchers accompanyine thv
saei; and also in transomitting -,aid ac
counts to the first Comptroller. cerified
for revision, while the most importani
vouchers therefor were retained in his owc
2d. That no fraud practised by the said
collector in his weekly returns of cash tt
the Secretary oftle Trreasttry, could afrec1
the true and just settlement of the account
of said collector at the Auditor's office, at

frauds and defalcations, if any exist, the
said Auditor could have thoroughly exam

during any quarter said Ali-litor has beet
in offmce. inasmuch as the original quarter
ly accouote were retained, against law. i
his office, and furnished the same means o
comparison as a register would have fur.
4tb. That, in the culpable disregard o
law and negect of duty. as aforesaid, by
said Auditor, is frond a primary cause
why the defalcations of said Swartwout it
1837, and subsequently, escaped every de
rection, and have resulted in the probablh
loss of the public treasure.

2d. The negligence and failure of the
Secretary of the Treasury to discharge his

dIenco of t he collection of the reventue, andi
his want of a correct appreciation of thme
before named records in the superinten
d ence'of the co'lect ion or the public reve
nues, and the conseqient neglect to con
tinue and complete them, are justly regar
dled as a primary cause of the escnpie from
detection, for so long a period, of the im.
inense defalcations of the late collector it
the port or New York.
31. That the Secretary of the Treasury
has been wanting in a proper discharze of

ever, take this occasion to say that he hasd ex
amined it; anad, as to the question of the loca

there was not a jury of twelve meni, etn in
England. who, under oath, could refuse us a

quaestiont too clear for coniroversy. Atad. as to
the pose-iasion ofthie partieniiar sectiotn ofe-conn
try where the conflict had taken place, it had
for thirty years beeon settled by our citizens, ann
der grants frota- Matstsachausetts. The tareten
sianna of excltnsive itnindiction set up by Great
liritain, arose from the ground that shte cotnsid
aired our sovereignty as comencing aonly
from the declaration of inleniendtence, or the
tre-aty of peace; and that, therefore, in all dis
pitted territory, she wouald exercise jurisdictiona
from Ite claimsi oaf prior saovereign~ty. This

The gentleman from Massachusetts, (Mr.
Cushing) had alludedl to other points of difli
enilty betweet us,~ and Great Britain. and to one
in which thte South is vitally interested. Yes;
Mr. P. said he held in hit hand the corren pon
dence recently published betweent the British
Cabiniet, through Lord Patmerston, with ouar
Minister and Govonnment-, it related t en

coast of* Bermuda, with slves bi-te thlis section

ted meat it was not in order. but Ai. P. said be
did i.ot intend io disiiss it.] N'he Briiish Cah

ground distinctly, and so cotmnettiiieated to or

Mr. P. had pernsed this correspi ndence
with the deepest iIIee:Dation. Tha' Gov--rn
tenit had by it so: up the right. to decide for
us. in what our prope' iy sioturd co ri .t. It
struck a high-iandt d blow at our indepen
dence. dut he would Iorhear to pursue the
subject, and oily say that, rather tia submit
to iU arroganet asslnumptions, lie would prefer to
see the couintry from the P'atapsco to the Sa
bine, laid low ine one sioking rum. This was
oinee aeiongst the many poil:is at istue between
its. and Great Britain. to which the getlenan
(Mr. Cishinig) had a.lided. The controversy
on the Northeassern beounday. wad presented a
tangible issue before us, and he thienght, tei
more decided the mnoveinei:s were, the better

that that was a military movetieent ]
Mr P. was glhd to mider.tand this from tle
Lemntuane, and what le intended to advance
wag., that the mo-t decided mtovenents at this
mieire wiuld be in theeel the ittost peacea

fie hoped there would be ot) occas-on to make
that last sad appeal. Int if it was threed upon

In this mitter, to a trai-sient observer. at first

and Kentucky, which every gao-I citizent
ought to desire, and will prove to eohr
neighbors, that thee people of this State arte
always disposed to extened to Kentuicky
