AdaalalatmUre TaltnU of Lords Derby, Abtr*
drcn and Jotui BmmII.
[From the London Times, Feb. 2 ]
We presume it is intended, in tee way ot consolation
to toe t,ubUc, or rather of congratulation for whit
?re called ' the improved accounts from toe Cri
men, that we were favored with a rather lively
seene in tbe Lorda last night. Hitherto there has
been a great deal of shyness as to all vulgar festivi
ties, hcipHaiitics, atd that sort of tnlog. Toe
Christmas hciydaja have been obeerved as a psr
petuai boidij? ua county balls, no grand dioaurs,
and latter'y. .is it happened, not evea fox bunting.
But matters, doubtless, are mending; for example,
the electiic telegraph reports " only 14 degiees of
cold" in the Crimea ; even if the weataer doe* not
change tbeie, the Commander-in Chief undoubtedly
wUi ; eo now is the time to extract some of tt?e
sweeter doe* of adversity; and torn was done by Lord
Derby last night. We can < n'y suppose that bis lord
ship u r?-a.ly in somewhat better spirits aa to the
war than most men are. - He rdaily does not think
tbe campaign (tartuily aod irretrievably mi*u?i
?aged, >r tn?i accounts "horrible and heart read
lug." Ob tais supposition alone is it exp icabie
tbat he can afford to amua* their lcrds'iipi wttU
"the (ictuteot an interior," raise a smile at t'ie
very propei aai natural remarks of the late Pie
mier ou ite labors of lii? cfilleaguen, atd t link mite
ot the "jut-*ial ' ot tbe Ministry than ot that otoer
disastrous co&jummation now impending. We are
aware of a Kino ot perversity in human nature? ?
cpeciee ot ?f-sctioD against the more imperious ap
peals to oar s) mpathy. It is not preciiely kaowa
with what parti- alar" sentiment Neio fiddled when
Rome burnt; but that it is poj.ib'e to bsgay under
the catastrophe of a great ?rmy freezing to death
we may see by tbe example of last night. We i
admit that tie htblt is incurable in the
conaernt;?^ chief. He can always laugh, aud
does always laugh. Doubtless, his owu fu
neral oration, when he comes tt> pron>un?
it, will be uiveislfied by as may good things
as thooB he intersperses in Lord Aberdeen's. I
Like Sir Thomas More, he would jtst on his scaffold.
Indeed, tbe pieeent occasion is not altogether ss I
different. If Lord Aberdeen had been pronounoiog
his own fune-al oration, to also d.d Lord Darby. !
He had to relate how her Majesty had given him j
her commission to form a ministry, and how that
he had dome his very best to form one, and had not
succeeded- bow tba< one more opportunity had oc
culted in vain, and Lord Derby was obliged to let
it pass, for want of friends, for want of popularity,
for want of hxad principles, for want of everything
except a gilt of eloquence, which knows no tim?s
nor neaeoos, and, in the fatal faoiiity of speaking ou
all sides, has lost the clue to the right one.
If anything is proved by tais unhappy exhibi
ticn of an uncontrolled humor, it'is that Lord Deruy 1
is wholly incapable of comprehending the present
situation, a: J feeling it as he ought to do. the
Aberdeen administration has fallen simply aad
solely becaaae it did not show sufficient energy,
promptitude, n solution, and firmneai in the con
duct of the war. It has been responsible for the
management of the war, and tbat management hai
utterly broken down. Needless la it to inquire whs
was most to blame, the Earl, or the Dake, or ths
whole Cabinet, or Lord Raglan, or his staff; the
British peop'e look to the government atjhome, and
expect that government to do the work, or to give
way to these who will do it. This la the sole ground
of complaint against the government, which has
not indeed tone much, but need have done nothing,
could it only have pointed to the flags of the allies
on the walls oi Bebaatopol. Lord Aberdeen, toere
fore, is quite in the right to remind the impatient
publicot what his government haa done apart from
the operations of the siege. Nothing wss mora
proper than that be should pronounce a friendly
bat not the teis merited eulogy on the diligence,
the skill, ana tbe eloquence of the Chancellor
of the Exchequer, on toe unwearied patience and
tact by whica the Foteign Secretary nas br outfit
Austria into the position of sn ally, given us already
an actual co ntingent of great value from tbe Kiag
of Sardinia, and cemented our relations with the
Kmpeior of tie French. It was not less proper,
nor was it with Ipss truth, that Lord Aberieeu
spoke in terms of high pra<se of the Duks of N'ew- 1
castle s aaaiauity and talent, unfortunately defeated
by the want of those higher qualities demanded by
a (.rials ot <ic paralleled urgency. All this was quite
compatible wit a cheerful resignation to that Par
liamentary sentence which has pronounced the late 1
Cabinet wai. ting, anl so -nmoned someone els ? to
take its place. Vet Lord Derby bat thought fit to
put wholly out af sight the dismal-sal seene in t ie
Crimea, to torget it, to dismiss it alike from tbe
thought* ot his head and tbe feelings of his heart,
for the soie purpose of treating this as a mere Min
interu. catastrophe, tbe downtall of a coalition caoi
net, dsmegiug to the oxedit os the statesmen com
Eromisei In it, thongh, as i; happens, not bringing
ord Derby a uch nearer power tha:i he was before.
Ot ths i?o we hardly know whl^h is least to ba
admired? tbe vacillations wbi h left Lord John Ru
sell in doubt ?o many months what to do, what to
propose, what fault to find, if any, with whom, if
an) body ; aad that only ce tsed when the dnty of
decision iao given place to tbat of loyalty and honor;
or the frivo ity which can profess to bs wholly in
diffusa. wholly incapable of de< iding which minis
ter coil>m oat tae b<st in the Cabinent disruption.
It is true that Lord Derby does jast Incline, as lar a
tbe jest will pet mlt, or as far as he can be consider
ed eenooi at all, ia favor of the duke, but then he
evidently thitks tbe Joke considerably enhanced by
the circum-ttaace thai the chief auffarer is the one
who leant deserves it, and that Lord .loha Rum
tell, who hai played his colleagues this ahrewd
trick, hju done so with so very bad a case. Per
haps, we shall be told that we exaggerate the
feeling of the country. Had we said a week ago
that tbe Hoase of Commons would pronounce a
censure on the administration, and turn it out by a
majority of two to one, we ihould have been told
tbat we exaggerated its feeling. But time ia now
turnirg oat tne greatest innovator, and we do not
hesitate to aay that the country at large is in a very
grave moot, and will soon siow itself in a mush
graver mood, if it seee public affairs treated with
toe levity exhibited by Lord Derby last night. It '
cares not for one parliamentary combination more
thaa another, and will not think the Internal feuds
of a Cabinet or its laat confessions worth even the
humor bestowed upon them by the conservative
chief, it is bent on prosecuting ite cause and ite
war with 'be utmost vigor, and wants the man to
do ite wotk. For the sake of the right man it is
prepared to swallow a good many scruples, but
there is one sort ot man it certainly will not invito
to the solemn doty of resoning cur srrny, vindicat
a our botor . ana keeping Russia within bounds,
that ia aa incurable Jester.

In the falleatiellance on the native enargiea of

and notoiag but the truth, we lay that the Brltiah
army, a* cootltitated'aud managed, la an utter
failure. At this moment the individual soldier I* all
that we have to depend upon, and of him we do not
feel the aaeliest uirtmat. In the absolute wreik ot
the syelem the man comes out greater than ever.
Bat never did opinion, a'ter braving it oat am
blustering so long, give way so midden ly. Aa it haa
baen oar mr.ancuoly task to pabliah the intelligence
from the seat of war, 10 it hat 1 alien to us t j draw

neither t > government nor to ptrty, we did thia more
fromptlyand keenly than our lea* fettered contem
(.o-ines. The rcaultwaa, that dav after day. tUi abxit
a wiek since, n were repeatedly charged with tra
du' itg the management of the expedition for aome
petty reason or other. Here and tirre we were
?ven threatened with the production o letter* from
the atmy that ooald ptove a state of thing* totally
different from that which was pictured in the**- co
Inmna. Would, indeed, that It were In the piwerof
anybody to set the public right, and to convict us of
e*ce?dtig the troth in this miserable aflair. Would
that aay one conld really recall to life the noble army
that landed last antnma in the Crimea, from the

Would that aome one could fill up the emaciate 1
loi ms of thoee that survive, and cl >th* them sgai oat
host, rain and ?oir. In vain have we been prom

lie in this agreeable manner. On the contrary, the
babble has now finally bant. The last ohaace is
gone. Not only has the army la the Cilmea per

broken down but the apologists of that matagement

constitution of the staff, and declares that there
will be no effectual reform la the army which doea
not commence with the Horse Giar is. Sir George
Grey adopts the apology of " inexperience,"
notwitbetandirg the fact of the selection of generals
to mansge the expedition baring rested c netly on
their '? experience," to the exclusion of activity,
genius, aal even success. Sims time since the
particular contempcraiy that bad been too mort
forward to impute s<me ridiculous m tive to our
accounts of the war, itself even surpassed us in its
" horrible and heartrending" revelatisns, and to
this day kseps the lead in the dismil rac - of hor
tors. We look round in vain for any man who will
now venture to persuade us that this ia only the
tiljrhtouue of a disordered imaxina ion. Li theie
tcbooy who csn w?ke as from this nideous dream,
and fhow ns the British army in the Crimea not so
wholly uncbaoged from that which began to land
th?re on the 14th of September, only fjur monthi
since? Well, tor the credit of credulity in thl< oa
boiieving age, there is ous man? one on'v? who
Mill believes in the War Department, the Medical
Department, the Hort*e Guards, the c>maiia.->ariat,
Lcttl Raglan and his staff, and every official, from
Dr. Andrew Smith down to the half-uozeu succes
sive narboimasteraof Balaklava.
Tte Chancellor of the Exchequer is the oce man
faithful fcurd in an unbelieving age. With the eye
of faith, and on the strength of some unknown
am jmetical persuasion, he still se^s thirty ttnos&nd
veil found, well clothed, well ted British soldiers on
the heights of Stbastopol, contending for the plea
fuieof a tarn in tbe trenches, or a promenaie to and
fiom BalakUva, laden, for variety's sake, with bis
cuits, th uteri -inch shells, casks of rum, and sections
of wooden house*. Yet even Mr. Gladstone, all
boplog, all-believing as he is? even he admits that
there is mnch in tbe general arrangements tn?t calls
tor amendment, and tuat in some important particu
lars there is ao much that is defective that the ac
counts are, as Lord John represented taem, " horri
blejand heartier, ding." But of all those ?h> have
advocated inquiry, none have given such good rea
son for it as tbe Chanoellor of the Exchequer.
When he says that there la still an eflective Bntisb
force of 30,000 men in the Crimea, and that the mi
nsgement baa been as gool as could be, be offers so
flat a contradiction to the whole world that, for the
mere sake of truth, it becomes necessary to inquire,
?ith Mr. Roebuck, what ia the conditiou of the
British army in the East 7
But it ia not on all these admissions, not on any
Parliamentary statements, that we would rest the
esse for inquuy. It is the fact that the manage
ment of the war haa broken down, not in this or
that deparment only, not temporarily, acoidentilly,
or partially, but throughout, uniformly, from first to
last even to the very last date. Never was there so
unvaried ft story of failure, excepting only when it
came to the rough uninformed untie of man witb
man. The picture of the camp, the trenches, tbe
road, the harbor, the transports, the hospitals, and
even the arrangements at home, as given not only
by oar own conetpondenta, but by everybody who
pretends to describe what he saw, is still the same.
Yes, at the very last date, within this fortnight, all
thn evils, and more atill, than hare been dephred
as the fruitful aource of disaster since the beginning
of the campaign, have only increased. How should
it be otherwise when Balsklavt, the real basis of
operations, and the key to the whole position of the
army, had, till the other day, not been visited for
ftore ittan thue months by Lord Raglan, while Ad
miral Dnndas had never once entered it?
At the last date this btrbor wa? still actually ex
poted to the danger of a cafsttropbe that in one
mstsnt would a> t'.le forever, not oaly the fate of the
ships, sailors, soldiers and material in the port or
the town, but the whole expedition. Tae ships were
the rccce of nocturnal orgies, aad a fire broke out
on board the Star of the South, which wan laden
with gunpowder. At the list date lint and other
medics 1 stores sent out to Scutari, and anxiously
expected there, were overshooting their mark and
auaing to the confusion of Ualsksva. At the last
date, soldiers were still doing dcty in tbe tranche*,
m mt times with the temperature at IB d;g , some
times a yard deep in half frozen sludge, with no
other covering for their limbs than the trousers they
first landed in, and in some cases witb not even
tbeee, but onlf bis ;uit bag* roughly tied ruaud tbeir
leg?. With the best market* fv>r wood and cha-coal
iu tbe world close at hand, and with ooal easily
worked and inexhaustible, within two days' stii,
tte srmy was with jot fuel; soldiers were xobsUting
for many days together on their taw rations and
steam transports were lying idle for want of coal
at tte cost of one honored pcuods each per
d em. So far from fortune baing to blame, the win
ter bad been a mild one for tbe Crimea. But every
oieningwaa left tor the inter vent'on of disaster,
that Providence might, if possible, be charged witb
the inevitable failure. At the l>nt date th? chief
evils of the hospital at Scutiri were unamended, and
no preparation was made for tbe immen.te at ?u.on
of new cases immediately to be ex jected. All this
time our gallant alliee were oaly suffering the ave
rage amount of misery, sickness aad deatn unavoid
able in every campaign. Sncb a uniformity of dis
aitf r on tbe one batid, and such comparative free
dom on the other? such darkness all around, and
Mich light round the tents of the French? could not
be accident. It is " inexplicable ," and we do not
see bow nny rational legislature could refuse to in
quire into the reesona of a contract which we have
no tight to atcribe to a miracle. The House of
Commona has decided oa that inquiry by a cruah
irg majority, that will at least bring the whole
weight of public opinion and feeling to bear on tbe
management of the war: and to what further onss
quences we forbear now to anticipate.
Mortality of ttar English Army at Kebastopnl.
Erocn the limlon Timet, Feb 1.)
dreadful mortality of oar army in the
Criix.ee waa brought under oifrtiMioa on Friday
last Mr. Sidney Herbert took the opportunity of |
referring to the losses experienced in the I'eninalar
war. apparently with the Impression that aucn din
antei* were rendered more ex unable by precedent.
We (ear, however, that it would be vain to searci
even tbe annala of those exhausting campaign* for
any auch list ot Invaliding* or caaoaltiea as are now
periodically report! t from tbe East. In a docu
ment now before ni. and to wbtcb we shall make
further reletenoe be ow, it is stated that, w ereas
i he mean strength of the British force in tbe Pe
tatuia amounted, in officers and man, to 86,372, i
the death* In th*t force dating tbe forty-one m tnius
ending the 25th of May, 1814, were 65 of
which number i? ''4rt occurred in the batUe or from
wound*. It further appear* that of theGl/ill
pen, ex'IoMve of om era, compoatng the
aim*, about 225 in every 1,000 were, on an average,
upon the eirk list, at d that their mortality waa at
the sanual rate of 161 in 1 ,000. Taking fiese figure*
as tiustwortby. we shall And that le?i t nan a >i dar
ter of ttie whole force would usually be in hospital,
or patting tbe caae In otber word*, that a regiment
1 ODO strong, would be able, geterally speaking, to
tuing upwards of TOO b?yot>et* ino tbe field. We
have doubt* whether the actual result* did really
cotiespond with tbese deductions, but uoquestiona
lily such invaliding aa la now reported ttom the
Crimea waa never heard of in Wellington a army.
It is related aiaiw roof able circumstance calculate']
to give an idea of tbe destruction which war. In ita
m< st dKBdful intenalty, might posaibly cause, that
when, after tbe moat bloody flght on record, the mus
ter ot a particn'ar regiment waa called, only three
K ate- and one drummer answered to their names,
thiawaa tbe result of such a battle aa bad scarcely
ev?r been kooan for obstinacy and carnage; tbe
regiment In que?tion had suffered by a surprise,
at d It is added, that many men who had been taken
tr loet In tbe confusion, aecaped after the victory
acd n joined their staodarda once more. Look,
however, at tbe report* from Hebastopol, and it
will be seen that, without any such ravages of tbe
sword, these ter ribie flguee find a parallel in tbe
c< tuequencee, substantially speaking, of hardahip
a <hm. Onr own correspondent circumstantially re
Ct4 that oa tbe 7th of January the 63d Regiment
I ooly seven men fit for duty, and the 46Ui < nly
thirty; tbat a strong company of tbe '?0th (probably
eighty or ninety men) had been reduced in a few
days to fourteen file; and that tbe Puaileer Uaard*
c< u!d only produce on parade 210 men, corporals
and "ergrant* it eluded, out of 1 seat oat from
fitst tc last. This statement ia corroborate i by
many otber aorouata, and, thourti It may be
diflx olt to ascertain exactly tbe efficient strength
ot tbe army at any particular period, there can :
la no doobt about tie general fact*. Tha mat
K'artliBg of tbe statement* above given was con
Qrned. tsdaed, by a letter from aa officer which we
teateiday pubtiebed. sad la which the writer said?

the exoess of deaths and aiekneas in our towns, re

considerable txtent in ordinary climates, even in
I the field and in the presence of an enemy; for the

much impaired its < fficiency once in the Peninsula,

nor to be imagined; but that, at any rate, la the ob
ject at which we should aim. and to which we may
undoubtedly approximate.
We may go one step further, and ?ar that the
lessen in tie Crimea have been of a character more
thaa usually entitled tj be considered avjidable.
We hare asserted more than once, a&d we affirm
again, that not only has nothing happened which
was utt to be foreseen, but much which was to be
suprehf nded bas not occurred. Mr. Sliney Herbert
observed in tbe debate, that " whtu we tMked of ;
oomms tiling the seu, we were apt to be rebuked
by h.m at wbo#e breath fie stormy tempest rages,
and foano that *eroas losses mltfht be sustained ou
' tbat element. " But such an appeal wasnotdeoo
icusi) made to eover the shortcomtugsof men Un
coubteoly tbe command ot tie elements pertains to
no mortal power, but this we may truly ssy, thit
we have been providentially protected froth thiir
violence. Every vessel and uan*poit, we believe, of
ever; description, which has sailed trom these shores
tor Buiakiavs, has reached its destii ation in safety,
aid, if iti car en has been lost to the sruiy, it has not
been thtougn tht tempest or the waves. Kven the
I Prince, as is well known, might have lanoed erery
bsle cf her stores. As to the rigor* of the
| climate, they have hitherto been below what mizh'.
nave been anticipated, and the very lsst telegraphic
deapstch re wived Irorn the Crimea deacrioes the
' weather, cn the 22d of Jannary, as " veiy tine and
, temperate.'' It is not from the atmosphere tnat we
have t uttered, but trom the want o( tbe cm man
< neceaearlea of food, ciothing, fuel, and shelter; in
I fsct, a like mortality might have been *xoeiienced
by any regiments quartered on the Welsh hills or
; the Devon ah ire moors, and exposed to similar priva
l tioss. We have had no weather necessarily dea
tiuc'ive to contend with, or tue Preach would be
in as bad a plight as ourselves. Car communica
tions have not been interrupted by sea, for nothing
could be more seenre, however irregular, than the
patsage between shore and shots. We have not
betn overpowered by thelnexoauatlble legions of the
' et> my, Ipr we have repulsed all hla atta -ks, and we
i stUI remain masters ot our position. We have suf
fered simply because there was nowhere tne compe
ten- e to turn our resources to proper account.
Oar statements on thii subject, long denied sod
occasionally censured, have now been confessed by
n inistera themselves, and confirmed by tbe sen
tence of the House of Commons. Mi. Stafford, too,
gave an example of maaly candor in asserting with
out reserve that " but for the elMi of tin journal
i the horrors of oar army's situation would never have
been reveaM, and, never being revealed, would
never have been remedied even to the extent that
they had been." Tbe same atesker, himself an eyt
, witness of tbe scenes he depicted, and au energetic
laborer in the cause of humanity, disposed sonclu
tively ot tbe puerile 'apprehension that in telling
the ti uth to England we might be telling too much
to the Czsr. Tbe Czar, it Is manifest, mast already
ktow at least as much as anv correspond' nee from
the Crimea could possibly tell him, and the trne re
medy, as Mr. Stafford observed, wss not to conceal
or deiy tie disease, bat to lay it bare courageously
to open day? to examine It, to discuss it,tograt>
pls with it and to conquer it. Take th?
question in its broadest and mosl practical
' trrm Had the press held back from "that
aacted and imperative duty," which, by Mr.
Stafford's own testimony, it "has, upjntbe whole,
'aithfully discharged," what woald nsve been tbe
consequence? Tbe nstion would have been left in
igpoiance of what tbe Emperor Nicholas, we rnty
be very sure, aould have substantially learnt, and
slltre advantage of Information would have been
rn tbe enemy a side. Our aoldlere would have been
Ifctt without the succors whi h theae reports nave
ireured them, aod their condition would have bee*
even worse, while their countrymen at home were iu
tbedaik. The oiedoaure ol the real truti to the
public has compelled extraordinary efforts to rerasdy
tbe evil* complained of, tbe Bufferings of the troops
fcave been mateiially alleviated by private benevo
kcce, tbe treasures of government have beeu quick
ened, tbe government iteelf ia at last to he remodel
led for the avoidant s of fntnre mismanagement, and
tbe Emperor ot Russia is taught tnat we bave learnt
mr misfortunes oalv to saimount them by revo'u
tknsLd wisdom. Which of these courses was tbe
better or tbe mere becoming is a question which we
corfldently leave to the jadgmett of the conutrj.

lfy letter of this morning informed yon that toe
acheme of our new Picaaoe Miniater, Benor Mado/. ,
had been bailed bt the Coitez yeaterday with accla
mati ;n. The cnaia la ao Important for Spain, thai I
have thought it worth while to aend yon (he follow
ing more important paaaagea of hia speech ?
Gentlemen I need not teJl you how ranch it b*?
i roat me to quit tbe president's chair, to whi -h I waa
called by the ronhcence and sympathise of myoi
Ifaguie. It was thi ie I hoped to paaa my political
life ; tor it was there, rather than on the ministerial
benon.that I feit confident of being serviceable to
my country. Hut, gentlemen, tor me it wan no
qcettion of pera? nal < onvecience. but one of patriot'
bm, or rather, of courage. On Sunday, atsix m the
evening, l was called to tbe lloke of Victoria, who
elfeied me the poitfolio or Finance. My first em>
! ticn was to refuse it, but when tbe Civil Governor
ot Mad: d and tbe Captain General of New Castile
UidaeUut tbey had ja?t oiacove ed aC?rliat cou
apiifccy, idj hesitation waf conquered. I consented
with ragem***, detei mined to d? wha*. I have done
all my life- mutt absolutism. anc apend my blood
In the cause of ltbrity. (Continued ebeera.) Gen
tifnr n, I h*ve tae be'iel that this country may ba
gcvemed with lesolution and honesty. We have
tbe proof of it in the fact that Senor C >llado
found tbe necetwaiy sources up to tie meeting of
; tbe Coites. I aay notblrg of Hfnor Bevillano, for
be bas bat pas?*d acroaa the stage (l.tuahter.i
Bat, gentlemen, there la alao another condition,
which ifi, that every one here shows patrl'tiam; and
T make, therefore, an energetic appeal to ail iny
COUcaguM. fiom the Marquis d'AJbai'ta (Orenae) to
i tbe partisans of (alien dynaatiea. [The Miniater
tten went Into an examine. ion of tbe financial
, attuatior.] Ibe day before ye?t?rd*y, ou entering
on my functions, I found In the Tmaaury little mora
than fenr bandied thouaand real* (aoout ?1,000).
Ali the public revennea have dacreaeed ainoe toe
revolution. The indirect taxea have produced
almcat nothing. The duty on aait and the
otter State propertiea have brought only in
significant sums. [The speaker read a liat of se
1 versl provinces, in which during the month cf last
November the salt duty baa yielded only four hun
died and odd reals, instead of fifty thiuaand.] I
wish you to know our eitire position. It is neces
sary you should know that the floating debt, wmca
now excteJa five hundred millions of reals, will in a
month mount up to nearly seven hundred millora.
(Prolonged sensation.) Tie moment la not yet cme
for me to lay before you my plana for financial oper
ations. I ahall soon tell you all raj ideas, even what
relatce to our customs' tatiff. (I,oog interruption,
for everybody present recollected tnat the minister
was a deputy for Catalonia, a province eminently
protactiobiat.) Ait depntv, I am a CV-aian ; bat
?a ministn, 1 am a Spaniard. We will examioethla
tariff question, and you may reat aa'asfled that, lo >k
log at the state of tbe country, I will go at far as
any nan in tbe path of commercial freedom. But,
gentUaeo, there ia a qiea'ion mor? important ttiau
that ef tariffs? the question of toe property neld in
eacleaiaatical moitmaln. (Yee, yea.) On that mv
opinion ia completely fixed. I am for its immedi
ate, its abeolate eale. ( Immense applause from the
chamber and the public galleries.) I have nothing
moie io add at pierent. I bave apokta with tbe
we:l known frankne?a of my character, and you
may be auie that tbe good faith of my acts will al
ways be in accordat.ce wltb the ainoerity of my
