Washington, Deo. 12, 1819. ;
A scene was presented to-d iy in the
House of Representatives, whichniust be ;
humiliating and mortifying lo?f|pfcry pa- j
triot. The Southern Democrats, after
! A* A ? ' ?' - *
inuireciuai nanotings lor seven clays, and
despairing of electing n Southern man to
the Speakership, thought they had discovered
a Northern man whom they could
trust, in W. J. Brown of Indiana.
Every inquiry was made as to his for- j
n1cr courso, nnd as to his present opinions
on the question of paramount importance
t6 the South; and the result only tended
c.? < >
t<> uvmiiii in muir udiiiuiuiico id iuh honesty |
and sound nels on the slavery question.
This w&s the condition of things this j
morning when the Mouse assembled, and !
on the tjrst ballot Mv 15 row a received 112,
which would have been votes, sufficient to j
elect him, being a majority of the vote^i
given?but Mr. Wallace of South Carolina,
having received some intimation during
the progress of the bal oting that all ;
woa not right and fair, voted against him, '
and informed two other gentlen^en of his i
iciirs, yv.no ijkcwisg voted against him, and
fortuijalcly for the $oul!i defeated his i
immediately after I lie announcement1
of the ballot Jjy the Ulerli, it came to light
that a corre-;nondeace had taken place t?etween
lifr Ifilmot and Drown, in which
Brown h;vd pledged himself to constitute
the committees 011 the District of Colnm
bin, the Judiciary, and Territories, of such
members us would he entirely satisfactory
to Wilmotand lnsfriehds.
This pledge was mauc when Brown
knew that his Iriendn wero reoomniondinpf
him totho South as opposed .to the Wilmot
Proviso, and in every way houiuI up
on tho slavery quest ion?-and ho positively
nsserted to Southern Democrat*, af- ;
tor this totter was written, that he had I

extricnte himself from tho difficulty in
which lie wn9 involved, but oppressed
with the consciousness nf detected trench
cry, lie only more inextricably entangled
himself?ho concluded his speech by
.withdrawing hi* name from before the
tlousc as a candidate for the Speakership.
All this displays a want of fairness and
a (^ogi'tio of dishonesty nnd treachery in
