I have to correct my list af Senators wbo have
voted againat tba Treaty. There were but 14
and not 15 votea esat against it, aa ststed in the
Union and Ilenld, and in my published letter
of yesterday. "t . . . , '
The vote stood against the ratification Allen
Aichmon, B -nton, Breese, Douglaa, Lewi, and
Weatcott 7 Dt'mocrata ; and ,
Badger, Baldwin, B rrien, Green, Spruance,
Upham and VVi-bter 7 Wbigi ' ;
Phelps, Pearce, Clayton and Houston absent.
So every other Senator voted for the confirm
ation, r Mr. Corwia, of Otiio, voted'or the con
fi '(nation, and not against t it, a atated jn the

His whole course on tbe Trea'y was such as o
ltd evtry one to snpptee that he voted lor its
ratification, Ynu my rely on it .that tbe above
