Mr. Pendleton's Speech.
-We have read In tbe Olobi tbe very able
speech Of Mr. Pinputon) of .Ohio, on tbe sus
pension by tbe President of ihe writ of Assess
tor put. In our judgment II Is nntnswerable.
Messrs, Howasd, GAmitLt and Datis, thre
of tb Baltimore Polica . Commiesiooers, now
confined in Fort Warreo, sept, a memorial to
Congress asking relief. It was referred to the
Judiciary Committee. Mr.,BiaHM, of Ohio
reported it back with ft recommendation that
the committee be discharged from its further
consideration.'1 Mr. Psndlctoh' moved i to 'ie
commit the report, with instructions to report
the following resoluioB: 'J
Renlved, That tbe Congress alone baa tbe
power, under the Constitution of tbe United
States, to suspend the privilege of the writ ,of
habets corpus; that the exeroise of that power
by any other department of the Government is
a usurpation, and therefore dangerous to tbe
liberties of the people; that it is tbs duty of
tbe President to deliver Charles Howard,,. Wil
liam H. Gatchcll and John W. Davis to the
custody Of tbe Marshal of the proper district,
if they are charged with any offense against
tbe laws of the United States, to tbe end that

-1 will not pause to comment at large on these
resolutions. Tbe opinion of General Banks at
the lime, or of this House now, as to their nro-
priety is entirely immaterial to this issue.-- Lest
I may be misunderstood, however, I will say
that, in my judgment they ar eminently wise
and dignified and proper; they afforded tbe only
meane ov wmoa in mem vers or tn board could
justify themselves in tbe present and the future.

on mem by tneir state, ana yet avoid a conflict
with th federal authority. J ? - ' -
Jt is worthy of remark that in the proclama
tion of the 27th of June, announcing the sus
pension ot the lunations of th board, no rea
son whatsoever is given for tbe act; Do negleot
of duty o their part is alleged; no disorder in
tbe city; no apprehended tumult': no act of dis
loyalty; no act of hostility to the Federal Gov
ernment, or to the maintenance of its authority.
It is also worthy of remark that the daily ses
sions of tbe board, assigned in the proclama
tion of tbe 1st of July as one of the reasons for
th arrest, if held as alleged, could only have
been three: for only so many days elapsed be
tween tbe 27ih of June and th 1st of July; and
that th "concealed arsenal " contained onlv
part of snob arms as had for year belonged
to tb pouoe ot tn city or Baltimore. -
The Commissioners were detained- at Fort
McHenry. They requested to be informed of
tbe charges sgainst them. Their request was
refused.-. Tb privilege --of A6ew torput was
declared to be suspended, and ft legal examina
tion beiore omt magistrate was denied them,
Tbey were helpless; they were held by the
strong ami ot military power, and were depriv
ed of etery safeguard of personal : liberty,
whlob bad been assured to every citizen. -"They
appealed to Congress, and, in th memorial
submitted, "prat that their caee be investigat
ed by Congress or remitted to tbe tribunals of
justio to be lawfully board and determined."?
On toe Kim of July, tn lions or Kepreee
ta lives passed resolution requesting th Presi
dent to communicate "th grounds, Teasbu and
evidence" for th arrest, and on tb 27th, the
President declined to comply with the reatrest.

) li is disgraceful that when hundred's fami
lies of tolunteers In tbe city of Chicago ar
suffering for the means of livelihood, the Sena
tors from tbls Slate oannot devise some plan by
which thev mav receive aid from tbe Govern
ment. ;Tn whole negro population of the
South seem cheap object of benevolence' to
these Congressmen at the rate of eight and ten
dollars a month with rations. - In other words,
they are willing to feed every hindred thous
and blacks who will come into tbe Union lines,
and pay them from eight hundred thousand to
a million dollars in cash every thirty days, bnt
tbey are not willing to expend ft cent for a sin
gle one of the destitute wives and children pf
in Illinois soldiers. . , W believe in the . old
maxim,' "Charity begins at home."i If Gov
ernment oncht to provide work to : support' tit-
gross, It ought to do th same thing for white
men. It is estimated .thut, the wwar will cost
from five hundred millions to nine hundred
millions of dollars, . Under ihe abolition plan
jf taking care ot tbe slaves,' at least a hundred
millions of tbia amount will go to the blacks for
their exclusive use and benefit. Now a. tithe
of this amount expended In Illinois wilUdo a
great deal toward relieving the distresses of the
poor during tbe present winter, and will also
pay for works of necessary importance to the
whole country.'-' Tb unemployed poor of this
State ought to send a . deputation to Senators
Trumbull and Browning, begging, tbem to nse
tbclr Congressional influence in their behalf.
Something of the kind must be done to remind
these magnates that they were elected to repre
sent wuite people. "
The above sensible remark from tbe Chics
go Timet will apply .to every State in the North
and West.. To Times mOTtthoever, rcmem
bet that the object oi abolitionism Is tojtake
