M. Washington, June 18, 1S15. From the Mi3Mippiau. Executive Chamber, Jackson, June 23, 1S1 13. $ Messrs. Pkicf. Fali Such frequent allusion having been made to the matter of "Mr. Thompson's Commission," in the pub lic newspapers and otherwise, that I have felt it my duty to make a statement of the facts in regard to it, so far as they are with in my knowledge, On the 20th of Februa ry last, I received the resignation of the Hon. II. J. Walker, bearing date 11th of the same month. On the day following I exe cuted a commission for the Hon. J. Thomp son to fill the unexpired term of Mr. Walk er, in the United States Senate, or to serve until he should be superseded by a legisla tive election. This commission, together with a letter to-Mr. Walker, and one to Mr. Thompson, I enclosed in a sealed pack age, addressed "Hon. Ii. J. Walker, Wash ington City," and placed it in the hands of Dr. I ate, ol Columbus Aliss., who was go ing directly to Washington, with insiruo tions to deliver it to Mr. Walker on his ar rival. Dr. Tate lias already informed the country, that lie delivered the package to Mr. Walker on the 5th of March. In my letter to Air. Walker, I said what I then thought and still think, was true, that a ma jority of the citizens of this State, would prefer to have him remain in the Senate; that his long services, his experience, tal ents, and high standing, gave him advanta ges which a new Senator could not have. If, Upon further consideration, . he should change his purpose of retiring from the Senate, (which I hoped he would do,) he would destrby.the enclosed commission or return it to me. With a view of giving to Mr. Walker, all the tiino for reflection and consideration, which circumstances would permit, I informed him that his tendered resignation had not been absolutely ac cepted, and that he would have the privil ege of withdrawing it any time up to the 10th of March when it was to take 'effect, anil when Air. Thompson's commission would authorise him to enter the Senate. The country will find in these facts, one of my reasons tor .withholding lor a lew davs a public announcement of Air. Walker's re signation and of Air. Thompson's appoint ment. I believed at the time that I had the power to do all which I did do, and I still think so. Others I am aware have ex pressed doubts about it. If I wets wrong" I can only say it was my head and not my heart that erred.- The motive and the only motive which I had, was to secure what I conceived to be the invaluable services of Mr. Walker; if this could not be done, to have his place in the Senate promptly filled. It is due to Air. Walker to say, that I pur- ued this course of my own will, and that it was in no way suggested by him. In mv letter to Air. Thompson,-1 inform ed him, that having tendered him the ap pointment, without solicitation on his part, and without knowing whether he would ac cept it, I felt it due to him, that he should be permitted to take his own position before the country, before any public announce ment was made, that the appointment had been offered to him. This is the next and only remaining reason which induced me not to speak.of these matters as soon as they transpired. These letters icere private, and not a part of the official correspondence, and no copies tcere retained. The question has been propounded, why was the appointment made in such haste? It was made under an impression, induced partly by my own knowledge of affairs at Washington, and partly by the representa tions "of Air, Walker, that an emergency would exist, at the Executive Session of the Senate, requiring the presence", of Mr. Walker's successor.". .This anticipated era- ergencv, 1 am nrwawore did not arise, but "l'ROTECTIOX" TO ALL HOLLY SPRDfGS, it was not possible for me to forsee that it would not, at the time the appointment was made. It has been asked, why I overlooked all the then Senatorial aspirants, and selected a man, not then a candidate? ' I did so, be cause I felt it a duty not to interfere in a controversy between friends, to whom I was under equal political obligations. I ap pointed Air. Thompson, because he was al ready in Washington; because the country had three times expressed its confidence in him, by three times electing him to Con gress; because he was not then a candidate for the Senate; and because having served with him in Congress, and been with him in times of trial and difficultv, I krlew he pos sessed talents; that he was a sound demo- crat and an honest man. Such is a plain statement o! what! have done in the prem ises, and such the motives which influenced me; all cf which is submitted to the country, with a consciousness on mv part, that I have acted from the best motives, and with the fullest confidence, that just men will not censure me. Why the commission was not delivered to Air. Thompson, is a question which Air. alker can answer lor himself. 1 am au thorised to say, he will do so in a very fete days. . I have never doubted he would ren der a satistactory reason lor what lie has done, and I trust the public judgment will not be hurried on to a conclusion acrainst him, until his statement is received. It is due to a distinguished man, who has ren dered great and important services to the country, that he should be heard in his own vindication, betore lie is condemned cn mere conjecture. A. (r. JjJtU Vi. Statement of the Hon. R. J. Walker. Washington City, June 16, IS 15. To the Democracy of Mississippi: On the 5th ol Alarch last, I received, to gether with a confidential communication from Gov. Brown, a commission for Air. Thompson as a senator, to take effect after the 10th of Alarch last, the period fixed m the tender of my resignation. The Gov ernor had been induced to make this ap pointment in consequence of assurances from me, that my own vote, or that of my successor, might, and in all probability, would be necessary, to give the democratic party a majority m the Senate upon the election of a printer for two years at the executive session. I urged upon trie uov ernor the importance of this election to the democratic party, fully appreciating the in jurious consequences" of a defeat on tins question, at the very outset ot the new ad ministration, and the censure that would attach to me, if this defeat were produced by a single vote, owing to my withdrawal from the senate. Influenced by these con siderations, and with a view -to meet this contingency, the Governor transmitted, not to Air. Thompson, but tome, a commission for him as a senator, to take effect after the 10th Alarch last, leaving to me, as I con ceived, a full discretion to deliver the com mission or not, as the circumstences of the case before referred to might require When the commission was handed to me with Gov. Brown's letter, the contingency to w hich I have referred, had not happened, and it was clearly ascertained would not happen, it having been determined after the date of my letter to Gov. Brown, not to go into the election of a printer at the executive session. The contingency not having hap pened, to meet which the commission was signed, seemed to me, that to have deliver- etT it under such circumstances, would havi violated the will and purpose of the execu tive, and the confidential trust and discre tion developed by him to me. I was still further influenced in arriving at this conclu sion by the fact, that it was in consequence of my assurance to the Governor of the probable occurrence of this contingency, that he had been induced to .transmit the commission, not to Air. Thompson, but to me, and that if under such circumstances I had delivered the commission, I might be justly rlccuscd of procuring an appointment to meet a contingency, and then delivering it in violation of the trust reposed in me, when the contingency had net happened and would riot happen, upon which alone he had been induced to sign the com'mls- sion. jt was my auiy -as me connaential agent of the Govemor"(the commission un til delivered being lawfully with his control) to have acted precisely as it was obvious" he would nave aone n present, ana it was clear that if present he would not have delivered the cammission unless the contingency had happened, to meet wliich he had been in duced to act, The commission (like any other grant or deed) was the property of the Governor, and not of the person named in the commission until the delivery to him, and the Governor by himself or agent could withhold the deliver to ascertain tht oc currence of a particular event, upon the happening of which alone it was desired to give effect to the intended appointment; and this principle is so well settled, and so universally adopted in practice, in regard to commissions and other grants, as to re quire no elucidation from me. I was not authorised to confer with Air. Thompson, unless the commission- was delivered to him, and had I thus conferred with him and disclosed to him all the circumstances of the case, he certainly could not and would not have accepted an office designed to be ten dered to hinxto meet a contingency which had not happened. EXCLUSIVE PRIVILEGES TO .NONE. MISS., JULY 17, 1815. And now the withholdim. tho cohimis sion is attributed by some to selfish purposes or Hostility to Air. Thompson. As to the first point, the commission was not handed to me until after my unanimous confirma tion by the senate, as secretary of the trea sury, and when consequently the delivery of ine commission could make no change m my position. As regards hostility between myself and Air. Thompson it never existed. We were intimate friends , personally and politically, and not an unkind word or thought to my knowledge had ever passed between us. From firstto last throughout his whole career, I had been one of his most zealous supporters, and in like manner, he had always supported me. Our friendship had been unbroken, and we had coincided m political principles. As to the tariff, the re-annexation of, Texas, the pre-emption sytem, the reduction and graduation of the price of the public lands in favor of settlers and 'cultivators, wo had cordially united in opinion and action. -The grant of the five per cent fund and Chickasaw school lands, and of the two per cent fund to aid in con structing the great rail road from the Atlan tic to the Alississippi at Vicksburg, the ces sion of alternate sections of land to improve the navigation of Pearl river, of the inunda ted lands to complete the levee from our northern boundary to the mouth cf the Y'a zoo, the appropriations to survey our gulf coast, and locate the Hospital at Aatchez, all which measures had been introduced by me and nearly all which had become laws, had receired the cordial and efficient sup port of Air. Thompson. In the trying crisis which' preceded the Baltimore convention, and the votes' throughout in that body, Air. Thompson and myself had acted in perfect unison, and no man exerted himself more warmly ty efficiently to place me in my present-position as secretary of the treasury. How then could hostility to him, one of my warmest friend?, have induced me to w ith hold the commission; and what other mo tive could have influenced me than an earn est desire not to violate a confidential trust reposed in me by ths executive of the State; nor is there any man friend or foe to v. horn under similar circumstances I would have delivered the commission. When the commission was handed to me on the 5th of Alarch and my decision made ami placed beyond recall against the delive ry, it was my firm conviction that the sen ate would certainly adjourn on or before the 10th, until after which Air. Thompson could not take his scat tinder the commis sion. There was nothing on which it was supposed the senate would have to act ex cept the executive nominations. ThcZol verein treaty was not to be acted on until December, and no vote was to be taken upon it at the executive session. After months of toil and vigilance on my part, the Texas question had passed both houses of; congress and could require no action on the part of the senate, and it was determined to postpone until December, the election of a printer to the senate, so that nothing re mained but the executive nominations, which no one belived could detain the sen ate beyond the 10th. It is true the senate did set a few days longer, produced by a most unexpected opposition to one of the executive nominations resulting in an ad journment of the senate from the Cth to the 10th, which together with the subsequent death of a senator, occasioning another ad journment, did prolong the session of the senate a few days beyond the 10th ; but when my decision was made on the 5th, I did consider it certain that the senate would adjourn on or before the 10th, and conse quently as Air. Thompson's commission did not take effect until after that date, that he could not take his seat at the executive ses sion. Such was my firm conviction when I acted on the 5th, and such would have been the result but for occurrences xvhich no human foresight could anticipate. I trust in conclusion,' that the democracy of Alississippi will see in my whole course on this subject, nothing but an ardent de sire to have provision. made to meet a con tingency which might have resulted with out my intervention, in a defeat of the dem ocratic party, upon a question of great im portance in its political results; and what ever errors of judgment other, judging after the fact, may think the'v observe in my con duct, I cannot but believe that all impartial men mus perceive, that my motives were pure and honorable.
