r.F- V.ilIiam Svrinton, the historian
of the "Army of the Potomac," whose

U appearance, gives the iollowing ac
count of the new light that ha ap
peared in the John Pope and Fitz John
Porter controverty, which resulted in
the trial by courtmartiai and dismissal
of the latter from the army :
"At the view above taken of the ac
tion of that part of the 'Second Bull
Run,' fought on the 2'Jth of Auguat, dif
fers in BOLue important particulars from
previous accounts, and especially from
the olScial report of General Pope, I
shall here substantiate, by confederate
official records, the truth of tuch poinU
of difference as are of moment The
question foremost in interest has rela
tion to the time at which Lonjrstreet's
corps joinea jacKson. uen. rope re
peatedly states that this did not take
place tili 'about sunset,' (see Pope's of
ncial Keport, p. 21) and lit is on this
ground that he and the court-martial
that tried General Torter based their
condemnation of that officer for not
turning Jackson's right Says Pope
i oeneve in lact, I am positive
teat at live o clock in the afternoon
of the 21th, General Torter had in his
front no considerable body of the ene
my. I believed then, aa I am very sure
now, that it wag easily practicable for
him to have turned the right flank of
Jackson, and to nave fallen upon his
rear ; mat it ne nad done so we should
have gained a decisive victory over the
army under Jackson before he could have
teen joined by any of the forces under Lonq-
street' (Pope's Keport. p. 21) Now
this assertion is traversed by the posi
tive evidence of the official reports of
several ot tne lenerals under Long
street s command, who show conclu
sively that Longstreet joined Jackson
as early as noon. Says Longstreet him
self: 'Early en the 29th the columns
were united, and the advance, to ioin
General Jackson, was resumed The
noise of battle were heard before we
reached Gainesville. The march was
quickened to the extent of our capaci
ty, ine excuement, oi battle seemed
to give new life and strength to our
jaded men, and the head of my column
soon reached a position in the rear of
the enemy's left flank.' (Repoiti of
the Army of Northern Virginia, vol ii.
p. 3) See also Hood. (Ibid, p. 209. j
But General D. Ii. Jones, who com
manded the rear division of Long
street's corps, is still more explicit
Early on the morning of the 2'.Hh. 1
took up the march in the direction of
the old battle-ground of Manassas,
whence heavy firing was heard. Ar
riving on the ground about noon, my
command was stationed on the ex
treme right of our line,' eta (Ibid, r.
217.) This would appear to settle the
time of arrival of Longstreet; and I
shall now show that before Porter came
up from Manassas, Longstreet had
taken up such a position as to bar his
advance to Gainesville. On this head
LoDgstreet's own testimony will fuflice,
and it is as complete as could be desired.
After giving his dispositions for his con
nection with Jackson's right, he states
that flood s division was deployed on
the right and left of the Warrenton
turnpike, at rightatglea with it Geu.
D. R Jones' division was placed upon
the Manassas Gap Railroad, to the
right, and in echelon with regard to
three last brigades' (I bid pp. 81, 82)
kow it is quite obvious that this dis
position covered Porter's whole front,
and that it barred his approach to
Gainsville. Any attack by Porter
would, therefore, necessarily be made
front V hen he received Pope s
orders to attack the enemy's right and
tnrn his rear, Morrells division was
already deployed in front of Long-
srteet, and it was near dark when the
order came to hand. Probably there
is no military man who will now say
that the operation indicated by Pope
was at that time possible, ueneral
Porter, many months subsequent to
these events, and after having in the
meanwhile had command of the forces
for the defense of the Capitol, and been
at the head of his corps at the battle of
Anllemm, wss arraiiiat3i uci,io wuiir
martial at Washington, and dismissed
from the service ot the United States,
for alleged disobedience to the above
orders of Tope. I do not constitute
myself the champion of General Porter,
nor of any other officer; but having be
come poBtsessed of 'the Confederate offi
cial reports, and having been struck
with the new light thrown on these
events by the unconscious testimony
given above by the Confederate Gen
erals, I should have violated my in
stinct of historic veracity to have sup
pressed these facts."

Washisotoj, Mav 6. IIolsk Mr. La
Bland, of Ohio, called for the yeas and nays
on Mr. (jar held a motion, saying he wanted
to see who were in favor of eiviue the negro
preference over the important interests of
the country, which was taken, and resulted
ai follows : Yeas, 51 ; nays, 82. o the mo
tion waa loat.
Mr. Vi ashburne, of Illinois, ottered a reso
lution, which was adopted, tlirecting the
Committee on Baukicg to examine into all
the facta and circumstances connected with
the recent failure of the Merchant's Nation
al Bank of Washington, and oiher backs;
report to the House the amount of Govern
ment money deposited in such banks, and
by whom the cause of their failure, and
what litigation is decenary in relation to
tne National .Banks to protect the public
and the Government ; with power to send
for persons and papers, and to examine wit
nesses under oaiu.
The House then proceeded tu the consid
eration of the special order, being a joint
resolution reported Dy trie -teconttruction
Committee proposing an amendment to the
Constitution ot the united Mates.
The debate waa opened by Mr. Stevens, in
support ot the resolution. Mr. Stevens
said that the proposition before tho House
fell far short of his wishes, but he believed
it was ail that could be obtained in t-'ae pre
sent state of public oi.ii.ion. Net only
Congress, but the several States weie to be
conauited. On a careful survey of the
whole ground the Committee did not believe
that nineteen of the loyal States could be
nduced to ratify any proposition more
atringent than this. He repeated the nine
teen States, for he utterly repudiated the
idea that any State not actually in the
union was to be counted on tne question.
It was absurd to suppose any more than
three-fourths of ths btates which proposed
the amendment were required to make it
va'id. Believing that this was the best
proposition that could be effectual. He
(Stevens) accepted it, referring to constitu
tional amendments passed in the House
tnis session, and which failed in the Senate.
He said it was slaughtered by a puerile
and pedantic criticism. Its death was pro
duced by sell-righteous Republicans, and
unrighteous Copperheads had postponed,
perhaps for years, the liberation of tne col
ored racu. Heaven forbid that the South
ern States, or any of them, shall be. repre
sented in Congress at a time when the mon
ument of freedom is being constructed.
They had been absent four bloody yeara,
and must wail till Congress is ready to re
ceive them. He believed that this Concreas
would Lot approach the free measure of
justice till every full grown freedmanin the
iaie rebel Stales was provided with a home
stead on the land whero he had toiled as a
slave. Forty acres ol land and a hut wou d
be of more value to them than the right to
In conlusion, Mr. Stevens, in order to
have control of the bill, entered a motion to
Mr. Blaine called the attention of Mr.
Stevens to an o jection tt the 3Uth section
of the amendment, which he deemed serious
if not iatal.
That section provided that until the 4th
day of July, 1S70, all persons who volun
tarily adhered to the State insurrection,
giving aid and comtort, shall be excluded
from the right to vote fur representatives in
Congress aud for the President and Vice
1'reaident ot the United States.
It appeared to Mr. Blain that that was a
violation of the good faith of a large class of
the people in the South, who came to the
terms of the amnesty proclamation of
President Johnson, and even thereby re
stored to all their civil rights. He asked
Mr. Stevens for an explanation on that
Mr. Stevens admitted that the pardon
extinguiahed crime; after pardon there was
no such crime in the lueiiviuual; those
who were fully pardoned did not come
wiihia the operations of the 30ih section.
ilr. Blaino understood the eeutlemen
from Pennsylvania to say that those who
came within the terms of the proclamation
of amnesty, would not be considered as
having voluntarily adhered to tho late in
surrection. Mr. Stevens assimilated their conditiou to
that ot peraoH tu,n:ta v( iejon. ail(1
thrrcby rendered incompetent to tesuly, put
who, it pardoned, ana it nis tostimouy were
challenged, could produce his pardon, he
would thereby show hia competency.
Mr. Idaine suggested that it that was the
proper construction to bo given the resolu
tion it should be amended so that there
could be no ipie'Stion about its construction ;
and he should, at the proper time, movo an
amendment to that effect.
The point made by Mr. Elaine, and vir
tually admitted by Mr. Stevens, seemed to
create conaiderable atir in the republican
ranks ; members drew near arid listened to
the colloiiuy with interest, as if recognizing
the posmtly fatal character of the objec
tions. N'aw York, May 8. The health officers'

It has dtroyed health, blasted the conau
