Mr. LANE proceeded to address the Senate,
lie Justified all thearta nf the President, and
contcuded that there was no uececslty for any
bill to give ine I'resiarns power io suspena lie
writ of Adfreai r of-pus. If he had not the power
by the Constitution, this bill would not give It
to him. He claimed that tho President had the
same right to use the military power to arrest
traitors in the North, as he had to use It to put
dow n rebellion In the South. The President had
ample proof of suspicion of treason In many of
the persons who have been arrested. He then

islature of Delsware - read from the mressj-e of

hear Mr. Dickinson, the accession envoy, and

subject of grest complstnt by the Senator from

Oen. Elgel, upon his own request, underwent
a critical examination Into the nature of the
chargea he had preferred agalnit Oen. McDow
ell last Saturday.
He did nol mean to Impeach the lalter'a loy
ally, but to point out, tbongh unwillingly, the
occasions when Oen. McDowell had, In his
Judgment, displayed Incapacity.
He proceeded then to give In detail the rea.
sons which Induced inch opinion. Referring to
McDowell's conduct at Thoroughfare dtp, he
stated that the hulk of MoD.'i army wai en
ramped but a short distance therefrom, thatth
roads were good, and the only force required to
hold It would have beeu about 10,000 men,
These might bsve easily relsrded the enemy for
a day, and so have utterly deranged hla move

want of attcntloh to the positions of his

Gen. II. W. II4U.KTK,

C.nxtnkhi I have the honor to oflTer the fol
lowing reasona for. moving the(Ariny,of the
Potomac acrota the Rappahannock aooner than
was anticipated liy the President. Secretary, or
yourself, and for crossing at a point different
irom ine one inuicaiea uy yon at onr ia( meet'
tnr at the President's!
During mj preparations for crossing at the
place I had at first selected, t discovered that
the enemy had thrown a large portion of his
force down the river and elsewhere, thns weak
enlng: his defence In front, and also thonchL I
discovered that he did not anticipate the cross

over at that place, to separate, by a lgorous
attack, the forcei of the enemy on the rh er be
low irora tne rorces nenina ana on tne crest in
rear of the town, In which case we could fight
him with a great advantage In our favor.
To do this we had to gain a height on the ex
treme rleht of the crest, which hels-ht com
manded a new road lately made by the enemy

How near we rame t accomDl shine onr ob

able delaj n building the bridge, which gave,
the enemy twenty-four hours more to concen
trate his force tn his strong positions, we would
almost certainly haro succeeded, In which caae
the battle would have becn,ln my opinion, far
more decisive man 11 we naa crosscti at ine
place first selected. ,
Aa It was, we came very near ancceea. Fatt
ing In accomplishing the main object, we re
mained In order of battle two days, long enough
to decide that the enemy would not come out
of hla strongholds or fight us with his Infantry.
After which we croatod to Ihla aide of the
river unmolested and without the loss of men
As ihe day broke, and long line of iroopa
were seen marching to their different poAltlona
aa If getting on parade, nol tho least demorali
zation or dUorcanlzatlon existed.
To tho brave officer and soldiers who ac
complished the feat of thus rccrosslng In the
face of the enemr. I owe ever thine i for the
failure In the attack I am responsible, as the
extreme gallantry, cdnrage, and endurance
shown by them were neer exceeded, and
woiua nave carriea me point naa 11 Dcen pobsi
To the families and frtenda of the dead I can
only offer my heartfelt sympathies j but for tha
wonnaea i can oner my nearueit prayers ior
meir comiori ana nnai recovery.
The fact that I decided to move from War
rcnton on to this line, rather against the opinion
of the Prealdent, Secretary and yourself, and
that you have left the whole movement In my
hands without giving me orders, makes me the
more responsible. a
I will wrlto yon very soon j aid give you more
definite Information t and finally, will send
you uy detailed report, In which a special ac
knowledgment will be made of the service of
the different grand dl visions corps, and my
general and personal staff departments.
To the army of tho Potomac, to w horn I am
so mnch Indebted for their support and hearty
co-operation, 1 will add here that the movement
was made here earlier th you expected, and
after the president, Secretary, and yourself re
quested me not to be In hakte, for. the reason
that we were supplied much aooner by the dif
ferent ataff departments than was( anticipated
when I last aaw yon.
Our killed amount to eleven hundred and
nfty-twoi onr wounded about nine thousand,
and onr prisoners about seven hundred, which
have been paroled and exchanged for about the
same number taken by us. itie wounded were
all removed to this side of the river before the
eacnatIon, and are being well cared for, and
the dead were all hurled under the flag of truce.
i ne suriteous report a mncn larger proportion
than nmai of slight wounds, sixteen hundred

ent time In good condition.
Thanking tho Govern men t for that entire
support and confidence which I hare alwaj re
ceived from them, I remain, General, your obe
