FROM THE HON. WILLIAM A
GRAHAM SENATOR ELECT
The debate in the Senate, on yester
day, upon the order to print ten thou
sand copies of the report of the Joint
Committee on "Reconstruction," detail
ing the evidence taken before that com
mittee as to the condition of political
sentiment in the several States of the
South and their fitness for representa
tion iii Congress, in which allusion was
made to the course pursued by the com
mittee in reference to the State of North
Carolina, and on application submitted
by me that her members elect should
be permitted to hear what might be al
leged to her prejudice, and, if they
deemed it proper, to cross-examine the
witnesses against her, if any, and to ad
duce other testimony, renders it neces
sary that I ask of you the favor to pub
lish the following correspondence. It
was instituted solely for the attainment
of truth, and thereby, as I trusted, to
protect the character and rights of the
State and people I was deputed in part
to represent. The President of the
Senate, at my request, had done me the
honor to present my commission as a
Senator elect. Though it was laid on
the table in conformity to precedents in
other cases, and I was not admitted to
the exercise of the functions it contem
plated, it still, in my conception, de
volved on inc the duty, in conjunction
with my respected colleagues elected
to both Houses, to observe the proceed
ings of the public authorities, and
when occasion might seem to invite or
justify it, to intervene for explanation,
so far as it might be allowed, in defence
of the interests and honor of our State
' and the fair fame of her people. Seeing
that an order to authorize the commit
tee to send for persons and papers had
passed the Senate, on motion of its
chairman in that body Mr. Fessenden,
of Maine a proceeding understood to
imply that evidence is to be taken, and
asearching and thorough investigation
to be had I applied for leave to be
present at the examinations pertaining
to the State of Nrth-Carolina, as will
be seen in the letters following:
IIilt.sboro,' N. C, Jan. 17, 1866.
Hon. Win. I Fessenden, Senate Uni
Sir: Observing that you are first
named in the Senate's branch of the
committee upon the admission into Con
gress of members from the Southern
States, and having forwarded to the
President of the Senate, to be laid be
fore tliat oociy, my commission as a
Senator from North-Carolina ; perceiv
ing, also, that the committee has been
authorized to take evidence in the mat
ters submitted to it by sending for per
sons and papers, I take the liberty of
respectfully suggesting through you to
the committee that it will be but justice,
in the conduct of its proceedings in the
premises, to permit the delegation elec
ted from each State to be present at the
reception of all evidence touching such
State or any of its members, with the
privilege of cross-examining witnesses
and of introducing counter evidence, if
they shall deem it proper.
And, for myself and my colleagues,
I, with deference, request the exercise of
tills privilege in relation to all evidence
having reference to the State of North
Carolina or any of her members elect.
I am, with the highest respect, your
W. A. GRAHAM.
My residence here is within twenty
four hours' journey of the Capital, and
I will attend there at any time on no
tice from the committee.
"Washington-, January 24, 1866.
Dear Sir: It is not customary to
allow a cross examination of witnesses
before a committee appointed to report
on a subject not involving individuals.
The committee is supposed to be desi
rous to ascertain the truth, and capable
of making all .the examination necessary.
The committee is quite willing, how
ever, 1 o examine any witnesses who
may be produced, having a knowledge
Lof the subject-matter, to any reasonable
The credentials of gentlemen claim
ing to be Senators have not been refer
red to this committee, and there is no
probability that they will be.
Yours, very respectfully,
W. P. FESSENDEN.
Hon. "W. A. Graham.
Hillsboeo', N. C, Jan'y 29, 1866.
Dear Sir : I am much obliged by
yours of the 24th inst. I had supposed
the province of your committee to em
brace that of a Committee of Elections
and prh-ileges, before which I take the
rule to be without exception that per
sons claiming to be members are per
mitted to hear what may be adduced
against their claims, and to bring for
ward countervailing evidence. If this
supposition be not correct, by reason of
the fact stated by you, that the creden
tials of gentlemen claiming to be Sena
tors have not been referred, the ques
tion will recur, whether the right of a
State to representation is not entitled
to an equal privilege of defence by those
whom she has chosen for th;-. office.
I know not what, if anything, may
be alleged against the right in question
on the part of the State of North-Carolina.
I am satisfied that nothing can
be alleged that ought to prevail ; but
until the objections and proofs are
known, it is not possible to canvass
them, or to offer contradictory evidence.
My sole purpose is to aid the commit
tee, so far as this State is concerned, in
the ascertainment of truth, and to guard
against ex parte testimony from unkown
or irresponsible sources. If, therefore,
the committee will at any time furnish
notice of the points on which evidence
is desired, or of prejudical testimony
which it is necessary to meet, my col
leagues and myself will gladly avail
ourselves of its permission to offer such
relevant proof as may be in our power.
I am, very respectfully, yours,
Ar. A. GRAHAM.
Hon. "Wm.P. Fessenden, Senate United
To prevent misconception, I esteem
it proper to remark that in giving these
letters to the public, no reflection is in
tended on the motives of the committee,
much less on those of its honorable
chairman in the Senate, a gentleman
with whom through a personal acquain
tance of many years, I have ever main
tained the kindest and most respectful
personal relations. But it is obvious'
that, from inadvertance, or a different
view of the subject on the part of the
committee, or from misapprehension on
my part, I havebeen'disappointedinthe
expectation of being allowed to hear
what was imputed to my State as de
merit, and of counteracting it, if I could
a mistake from which some injustice
has resulted. My inference, from the
correspondence, certainly was that the
committee, when they should reach the
matters touching North-Carolina, would
notify us of the points on which evi
dence was desired, and would afford an
opportunity to apply to adverse testi
mony the ordinary tests of truth, as
well as of combatting it, if in our judg
ment proper to be done, by witnesses
called by ourselves.
I was, therefore, surprised, a few days
since, to learn that the committee had
made report of the evidence taken by
them, and obtained an order for its pub
lication a proceeding which, in a leg
islative bodv, as in a court of chancerv,
I presume, implies that all the evidence
has been taken thai it is designed to re
ceive. This inference is confirmed by
the application for and adoption of the
additional order to print 10,000 extra
copies. It imports that the case, as to
the facts, is fully made up, and that
upon these it is to be submitted to the
judgment of the two Houses of Con
gress, and the still higher arbitrament
of public ojnnion. Now, I most re
spectfully protest, that if, upon anything
contained in all tlis evidence, the peo
ple of the State of North-Carolina shall
be condemned, or kept in a state of con
demnation, it will be a condemnation
without a hearing, when she was enti
tled to be' heard.
Of alt the testimony received by the
committee, there is not a single affida
vit having any specific reference to her;
and there is room for hope that, from
the absence of other evidence, she Avas
not considered involved in any great
degree of demerit or criminality, and it
was not deemed necessary to prosecute
the investigation any further on that
account. JJutit cannot escape observa
tion, that in a State of a million of in
habitants, the only witness called to
speak of her condition, the sentiments
and ruling motives of her people, should
be Lieut. Col. Dexter H. Clapp, from
one of the Eastern States, an officer of
the Freedmen's Bureau at Raleigh, who
states that he is conversant with the
people in some twenty counties out of
eighty-seven a sojourner filling an of
fice for which there will be no necessity
in a short time to come, unless upon the
theory that the government of the State
will not do justice to its negro popula
tion in their condition of freedom. I
do not design to impeach the integrity
of this gentleman. He is spoken of iu
terms of high respect by persons of our
common acquaintance. . It has so hap
pened that I have not met hiin.
But surely his opinions, loosely ex
pressed, as they are in his affidavit,
(and nothing more fully illustrates the
impoitance of cross-examination than
the want of precision in the language
of his statement,) foi med by intercourse,
as he admits, among less than one
fourth of the people of the State ; his
vague statement of a design to repudi
ate the rebel debt, (what is meant by
this I do not comprehend ;) his sweep
ing assertion that "Union men and
freedmen stand a poor chance for jus
tice in the State courts," (an aspersion
upon the judicial officers of the State
recently chosen by a Legislature elec
ted under the restricted system of suf
frage ordained by the proclamations
of the President and Provisional Gov
ernor, as well an injustice to the gener
al sentiment of the people,) are aH too
indefinite and unsupported to serve as
the foundation for any action or course
of policy on the part of the Govern
ment towards the people of the entire
State. Had I been so fortunate as to
have hal the attention of the commit
tee, even after this affidavit was taken,
I think I could at once have more than
realized all the disparaging testimony
of Col. Clapp, by requesting that there
might be summoned another officer of
the Freedmen's Bureau, some time on
duty at Fayetteville, North-Carolina,
who had equal opportunities of obser
vation, and I judge as much capacity
for improving them. Tl is Major
Lawrence, of Illinois, (I am told a
brotlier of the chief justice of that
State,) whose letter recently published
on these topics I hope to append to
these remarks, as well as the statement
of Col. Clapp.
I had no design or wish to be exam
ined as a witness myself. I should have
considered myself rather as occupying
the place of counsel or advocate of the
State. And if the committee had inti
mated a Avish for such information,
would have taken pleasure in furnish
ing them the address of gentlemen in
every section of the State whose ac
quaintance, whoso integrity, whose in
telligence, whose loyalty and interests,
and identification Avitli the country
qualified them to speak of the condi
tion of affairs and the state of feeling
and opinion towards the Government
of the United States with full know
ledge; men whose ambition has been
chastened by the fires of adversity,
whose afflictions and sacrifices would
satiate a generous foe, whose desire
is to re-establish the constitutional re
lations of all the States Avith the Fed
eral Union, and, as preparatory to this,
to disarm the spirit of revenge and the
remorseless passions engendered iu a
great revolution, which, by reason of
its want of success, many are unable
to distinguish from a petty rebellion.
And before Congress and the people,
to which this evidence is submitted for
their verdict and judgement, I respect
fully claim that the State of which I am
a citizen and a ser ant is not to be af
fected injuriously bv :i:iy evi U; ce re
ceived by this committee. She has in
good faith submitted her self -to all the
requirements in that scheme of policy
prescribed by the President from the
Potomac to the Rio Grande; is obedi
ent to cA'erv law of the Union ; is with
heavy sacrifices paying the arrearages
of taxes of former years to the United
States ns well as present K vies, and not
arrogantly, but confidently, appeals to
that sense of justice and those rem1 m
brances of ancient friendshin Avh.ch
shall restore to her the full fruition of
her rights as a State of the Amerii an
Union. W. A. GRAHAM.
"Washington, March 1G, 1S66.
From the New York Express of Tuesday.
HORRIBLE CASE OF INFAN
TICIDE. We hear from private sources, of a
crime committed in this city some
twenty days since, almost too horrible
to record, and presenting one of the
numerous phases of infanticide, so com
mon in New York and vicinity. About
midnight a well dressed man droA-o in a
carriage, to the rooms of a professed
midwife (we give no names at present,
as Ave understand the facts liaA e been
communicated to a Catholic priest and
brought before the police,) and persuad
ed the AA'oman to go with him to a house
near by to attend the aecouchmcnt of a
young woman. The carriage apparent
ly Avas driven through various streets,
AA'ith the A iew of deceiving the nurse,
until it stopped in front of a large house,
in which there were no lights, either in
the hall or in any of the rooms.
Reaching the third or fourth story,
the midwife Avas first led into an un
lighted room, Avliere there was a bed
and a woman upon it. This room led
into another, where there Ave re no lights,
but where there was a large fire. Half
an hour after the arriA'al of the midwife
a child was born, and was immediately
taken into the room with the fire, when
the nurse asked for its clothing, and Avas
told by the monster Avho had decoyed
her to the house and chamber, that there
was no clothing for the child, and that
it must be put upon the fire ! The nurse
refused, when the man dreAA' a pistol
upon her, and threatened to kill her if
she did not obey him. bhe still re
fused, Avhen he deliberately took the in
fant from her arms, which Avas a
healthy child, into his own hands, and
put it pon the fire ! literally roasting
The nurse was returned to her home,
in the same carriage, and by the same
circuitous route, where she has been ill
eArer since, and only well enough to
communicate these astounding facts to
her priest, who, as Ave before said, has
laid them all before the police.
The Georgia House of Representatives
passed the stay Isnv bill over the Governor's
veto by a vote of 120 to 7.
An order lias been issued at Charleston
stating that grants of land to the freed people,
in compliance with Gen. Sherman's order,

ALL MEN OF EDUCATION and reflection
should ponder well upon the advantages of
Lite Insurance, and should promulgate their ac
quired knowledge throughout the whole circle ot
their acquaintance. They should remember that
it recommends ilseif in many instances, not mere-1'
ly as a measure of expediency, but as a bounden
duty, a duty easily discharged by the payment ot
a moderate sum. The question is : shall the mar
ried man trust the comfort of his family to a
chance ? albeit a promising one; or is he m t
rather bound to make sure of a provision, as far
as i e can, for bis wife, his children, ids helpless
relations, for all those dependant upon him for
support, : lid through tiie medium of Life Insu
rance, assure an adequate provision again t im
pending poverty and irretrievable disi ri ss ? How
many men have" I heard say : . " Yes, but I want to
insure for a large sum when I do insure, and it is
not convenient now." Ami so, because tiie man
cannot gratify his vanity and pay tbepremium on
61:0,000, lie dies, nnd leaves bis vi'.v and child
hou cless. sorrow-stricken and broken hearted,
thrust on the cold kindness of t?i'ii charitable
relations, without a cent to bury him or provide
food for themselves. And this because he, the
loving and devoted husband, would not make
even a temporary provision, couyonant with his
circumstances, for the wife who had been his
nurse in sickness, his friend in distress, and whom
he iuul sworn to cherish and protect, and by the
payment of 675 or SI 00, si-cure manv thousands.
Strange that man, who iwcs to hi.- wife the chief
chain of his existence, tbe every day comfort of
his life, should be able to look heartlessly to that
period when their last parting shall take'phiee,
when removed to that world, where to !:!;n, all is
hope and consolation, he shall have wilfully left
in darkness and desolation, steeped t:i poverty
and wre-tchedness, to struggle with the hard jus
tice of a hard Waned world. Ke.-;:ring to Life
InsuKince is risking nothing, but truly securing a
certain profit upon that which if, at all times, an
uncertain event. ,
The general Agent of the Aetna has the gratifl
catton to state that quite a large number of 'sober
minded nu n in this community have availed them
bclvcs of this- opportunity. Ail are invited to
