Mr. Hurt demanded pruvinus question,

A PERSONAL EXPLANATION.
UROWNLOW GETS IIIS DUE,
Vmhlngton, Fsb. IS.
After so mo debate upon allowing Mr
Ilcck tolmvo tho floor for n personal ex
planation, ho was accorded that privi
ledge. Mr. Ilcck then uroccoded with his ro-
marks. Ho did not intend, he said, to uso
any blllingsgato or slang, or to degrade
tlio House by any allusions which mem
hers would sav were not eminently pro
per. It was more important to him that
iio should bo right, nnd Hint tho House
should sav that ho was richt in tho re
marks for which he had ben arraigned in
tlioSennt.o In that speech ho had said
that Gov. Urownlow or Tonncssc, had
made a pandemonium of that State. Ho
f Heck) had been on tho committee to
investigate tho condition of tlio South, nnd
when ho hnil como to look over tho condi
tion of thlnjrs in Tcnnccseo from tho closo
of tho war. for four years, ho saw such a
state of things as existed nowhere olso on
tlio American continent, nnu it was be
cause ho found that stato of things so exist
ing that ho had mndo tlio remarks to
which oxceptior. hud been tr.kcn. If those
facts did not exist, then ho was guilty of
slander; but if they did exist, and it lie
should provo to tho Homo that that Stnto
had been under misrule and made a pande'
monium for four years nfterthe war closed,
then ho was not guilty of any slander, and
he should either stand beforo tho Houso us
a wilful and malicious Hbelcr, or ho should
stand confirmed by tlio fact?, ns ho would
Beforo ho would say a word as to tho
personal attack on himself, ho wanted to

Mr. Stevenson asked tho chair, nsaaues-
tion of order, whether in a personal expla
nation a member had a ricrht to proceed in
a general discusssion on tho stnto of Ten
ncsseo7 Tlio speaker replied that it had bcon re
peatedly ruled that when a member was
permitted to make a porsonal explanation
lip was not limited ns to what he should
say, except that ho must bo within tho rules
of tho houso.
Mr. Reck said ho desired to show tho
condition of things in Tennessee, ns Hint
was tno great point in t no matter, lie dc
licd tho right of any member to make use
of tho privileges of the floor to tnalicrn or
slnndcr any ono outside, nnd whatever ho
nau tiini no had said on nis own responsi
bility ns a miin, und ho was prepared to
provo its truth.
He then proceeded to show tho condition
nt thing In Tennessee, from 1805 to 1808;
how tho Legislature, by ii series of acts
unpnrullcd in American history, constitu
ted itself n body not representing ono-
I tenth parloftho imiiulution ; how neditious
?if irerti pauou; imw persons were iir-
roieil lor s peaking disrespectfully of tho
governor; how there whs un outlawry of
persons, un outlawry of the press, un out
luwry of the, franchise, un outlawry of
ovoryllilng which did not bow to the man
dates of tlio men In power. Ho showed
how seventy thousand citlzoni of tho state
hud been disfranchised by law; how tho
governor hnd disfriinchwcd twenty-eight
counties in Tennessee becauso they hnd
elected to tho legislature men who were
hostile to him; how ho had reduced tho
voto of the wtuto from 100,000 to 30,000;
how ho hnd only allowed nineteen men to
be registered in tho whole countvof Ilenrv.
and how no nuin wus allowed to voto who
was not known to bo in fuvor of tlio legis

Mr. Stevenson, excitedly. And made so

Mr. Reck. I say now that no man can
reud over the records of Tennessee and soo
how, step by step, that condition of things
was produced; how mon were disfran
chised, how n militia was organized and
put over the peoplo, how military orders
were issued, bow martiul Inw was declared
und executed without feeing that what 1
saw of tho fctato of Tennessee in thnt con
nection was strictly truo, nnd that it wus
tho worst governed hUto on tho conti
nent. Ho proceeded to read from tho tcsti
mony of witnesses, who. he said, wero
strictly loyul men, and said that he would
print tho rest of it In tho (,'loie.
Mr. Stevenson objected to the prlntlni:
of iiiiything that was not reud.
Mr. Beck. Then 1 will read tho wholo
of it, and I givo notice teat nothing shall
go in tho Ohbe in the futuro that is not
read. Ho then wont on to quote from the
testimony of witnesses, und said i On that
was I aiiullcd. I was charged with being

and taken up tho slave-driver's

jcorn nnd contempt of nil decent men. I
would not notice it, but for tho Act tlmt
what has been said against mo will no to
all tho world. 1 nm willinir to stand forth
on my record beforo my peoplo nt home.
They know mo. They linvo trusted me,
but they cannot speak to tho wholo Amer
ican people ns 1 enn spunk to-day from
tins n ace. nnd when com emeu riso in,
their places anywhere, Idonot'wiroiwhoro
nnd chargo that 1 nm not n man to uo
tt luted because I nm so vlln and came
from so vllo quarter, and nm guilty of
such vile practices, I denounco it here, and
denounce It everywhere I know why all
these charges nro made. "What 1 said
about a pandemonium In Tennessee wns
said about nH tho other touthern states,
and n good deal more nboutsomc of them.
Ono man, Davis of Texas, was looking mo
In the face when 1 tnid it. I said moro
against Governor Rullock, of Georgia, who
sat by my side, nnd they tiro not nil crip
ples, not nil imbeciles. 1 havo
never told n He, and I am
prepared to provo ovory fact that I havo
stated hero or elsewhere. They thought
thoy would put n man to speak against mo
of whom they could sny that ho is a crip
ple, that he cannot write, that ho cannot
read, that ho cannot walk, and they shield
homselves bcliind him. They are not nil
cripples. All the rest of them can walk.
I will provo what I said against every ono
of them, and it is becauso they know I
will do It. it is becauso Held of Florida,
Scott of South Carolina, and Davis of Tex
as, and nil of them know that I will prove
it, because thoy know that I havo been
prominent in getting up n report which
will bo beforo tho country in less than a
week, that thoy nro trying to blacken mo,
so that when the peoplo tnko up that re
port and read it thoy may say, "O, ho is
tnat fellow Beck, who was n niggor-driver,
that says this." That Is their game.
That is tho reason why they soloctcd a poor
old Imbecile to attack me.
Air. Stevenson nirnin made point of or
der against Mr. Beck, nnd was again over
ruled by tho speaker, who said ho baa
been listening attentively, nnd tlio gentle
man from Kentucky bad violated no par
Mr. Reck resumod: The peoplo of Lex
ington had sent him to congress three
times; tho last tlmo against his protest
ntid alter Ins written declination. Thoy
hnd mot him with ovations when ho went
home. He was willing to stand on their
knowlcdgo of him ar.d his character. Ho
novcr was in any man's livory stable, and
had never whlppod any man s slaves nor
his own slaves, tliouirh it micht havo been
been hotter for himself and them had he
done so sometimes. Tho charge that ho
was a slave-driver was a lie. and ho
hurled it back on nil thoso mon with tho
scorn it doservod. lie felt humiliated at
having to toll nil this, nnd ho would not
have dono so had tho attempt merely been
to injuro him personally, but the object
was to ucstroy tno power nnu etiect ot
what ho had said and of what he would
continuo to say 'against tho carpet-bag
governments of tho south, and all their
trauds, all their corruptions, all their ras
calities. Ho know what it was all for. Ho
knew that this fcoblo old man had beon
soloctcd to attack him, by others who wcro
moro deeply implicated than ho.
In ordor to oxhibit Mr. Hrowlow'g con
sistency in attacking any man us a slave
driver, ho read some, extract from the de
br.to between Urownlow nnd Pruyn, twolvo
or fifteen years ngo, in Philadelphia, in
which Brownlow took the position that
American slavory ought to bo perpetuated
tint slavory was tho inovltnblo condition
of human society, nnd that God nlways in.
tended tho rolntion of muster and slave to
exist. Ho (Reck) commended thuso ex
tracts to tho other side of tho houso.

As to Mr. Rrownlow's laying the lash
on Ids (Reek's) back, if ho wero stronger
than ho was, ho said no nuin over laid u
lush on ills back or struck him n blow,
and no man over should and live. Mr.
Urownlow could not sny so much for him
sulf, ns F.iyetto MoMtillon know. Ho
(Ilcck) wus no braggart und no black
guard. Any fish woman could beat him
at abuse, but ho ddniod with honest indi
gnation tlio chargo tnudo ngainst him that
lie hud over boon guilty of unytliing un
worthy cither of himsoir, his family, or his
peoplo. If ho hud been, ho would not bo
here. Ho represented tho proudest dis
trict in America; it district that had moro
capacity to produce all that win roqulsito
for human lifo than many of thii Slates.
Mr. Reck suld ho mount no disrespect to
tlio sonato in any allusion ho had mado to
it, but when ho huw a vulturo sitting In
tho nest of tho eagle, and baboons taking
tlio pliico of lions.'ho protested against tlio
outrage. Ho wanted to keep tlio senntu
pure nnd high minded. Ho wanted to see
the status represented by honiiniblovrhcn,
not by mon who forced themselves on them
at tho point of tho bayonet, or by fraud,
corruption, chicanery or ostracism. That
win iiio way inoy iookou at it. Tiiat was
the way lie fult liko speaking ubtut it.
In conclusion, ho thanked the houso for
tho courtesy it had extended him.
-Mr. Reck wns listenol to with tlio great
est interostund attention by the members
of tlio houso and crowded galleries, lie
spoko witli great rapidity and force, and
wits warmly congrutuluted by his political
friends when he concluded.
