An unsuccessful effort had la-en made three weeks before to fasten that' amendment upon another appropriation bill of which I had charge, lu the struggle hi fasten it upon, this bill, there waa a lengthy d"late In which its merit aud demerits wi re fully diaDusod. la that debate I bore my full share In opposing the amendment.

The bill tli'-n went to a conference committee with sixty live unadjusted amendment pend ing between Ihe two Houses.

I-concliided It was my duty to stand t)y the bill ; and 1 did to. - I remained in the conference, and did what I could to 'ert' ct the bill knd reduce ti e amount 'appropriated by it.- O41 my mo ion. ihe following proviso was made a part of ihu bill! "Provided, that in settling the pay and ailownnce of members of the 421 Congress, all mileago' RlaJ be deducted, and 110 allow- slices alial! be made for expenses ol travel. The sum deducted from the additlenal buck pay under this proviso, amounted in the ag gregate to nearly $400,000 ; nnd Ihe pay to the members ol the Into Congress, Is inatlo lest than to those of I hi next Congress by the total amount ot actual traveling expenses. 1 he oilier sixty-lour amenduicuts to the lull were snisfactorily ndjusird, after many hours of deliberation,' Having' done w hat I Ouild to perfect tlie bill, 1 signed the coiit'erendc re port anil pteaeUlc.il U to the Iloitav ; but in do ing so 1 slated that 1 alone had opposed the salary clause iu the conference committee and hud done' what I could td. ftrike it out ; and that I bad signed the report rattier than run the rittkof losing thu bill,, I then voted for the bill; not for thu increase of salaiies, nor fir the retroactive clause, for I was opposed to both, but for the bill ss a whole.. It is clear that il w ould have passed If 1 had voted against It. But believing that il was belter lo pass tbe bill, even wild Ihu sal ary amendment included, than risk the couse. qiieucct of its failure, I voted for it., It would have been an Inconsistent nnd cowardly act on my part lo vole against It merely to escape criiiclstm 1 If the bill, as reported Iron) the coofcrence consmittee, ouht lo have beeu defatted, there was one' well known unlivery easy way to do it. One-tilth of the members 'present, by dilatory and filibustering motions, nnd calling the nyen und noes, could luivu prevented u vote on tbu report till Ihu end ol the sisslo.i. Should the ninety-six members who voted against the conlcrcuce report be censured for uot preventiug its adoption? Less than h.ilt'ol their number could easily have done 80. But no one of theiu, bo far us I know, thought il bis duty lo defeat the bill. Ceclaiuly, 1 did not think it the duty ol the Chairman 01 thu Committee on. Appropriations lu lead such a movement. It lias been said that Iho conference report might luivu beeu recommitted, for a further attempt to strike oil' thu salary clause. The answer lo this is that '.lie House, on au it ye und no vote; by nineteen majority, ordered the question lo be put on Ihe adoption of the report. The plain fuel Is, Hint the final vote on the hill was not a test of the aculimvuls of mem bers ul the House ou the salary (question. The responsibility for the Increase of salaries rests upon those who forced thu utneitdilicut upon the bill. i , There is, cue feature of the case to which refer with -great teluctauce. itntl with a deep sense of the Injustice that is done inc. It is charged that I voted lor tin bill for ihu pur1 pose ol pulling $",000 of back pay bilo my owu pocket. 1 tcuih ssly appeal lo ll u mis and enemies alike lo say w hether any net of my public lile bus wttrraiiled them iu Imput ing 10 me unworthy .nil mercenary motives The point hero raised is ouu Is w uicli I did not intend to relet in thia. letter. 1 prelurred to leave my personal motives lo thu tulure for vindication, uut already, witiiout my Knowl edge or iiMctircmeut, u paragraph has louud its way to Ihu press which luakcs it prop for me lo say what 1. do I iut wih to patade in public, tun I nui only iU.1 not receive the back miv nor uuv uart of it. but .1 ordered il so covered Into Ihe gem ml Treasury us lo be placed beyond the reach ot' myself or luy heirs. 1 I have thus stated the facts iu the case, that you may know precisely what 1 did, and I lie reasons lor It. 1 llesne 1u.11 tins 11110 eveiy other ncl of tnv public lile shall bu fully known lo you. Ten years ago, you called lim from another field of duty and honor, 10 rep. resent vou in the national legislation.

I have spared neither limnixir labor, lulthfully to discuurC the ilu lii-a nf the olaeu assigned me. Doubtless 1 have made my full share of mistakes und blunders tmd my vote on this bill mav havu added uuothi r lo the list., 1 ru sued 110 mull 'he less lot thinking, so. hut iu mis as lu all mv official conduct, 1 acted lor whut 1 considered lue public good. Whether wise or nowise, deliinsitlli) or ludctf iisihlu, llial votu had the approval of my Judgmem ; and 1 do not shrink, lioiautiy (csponslluliiy growing out of It. , But I do not- affect to conceal my suf irise and tllsappoiutmeut at tliu CDustruclion wlncU baa beeu giveu to llial Vote, I'robubly uo uiau, who, conscious of hU own iuti-gitliy, bus served a constituency us long us 1 have served you, coujd see ihu basest of motives attributed to hbu, und listen to a public demand lor his instant resignation, with imlitl rence.

But the chncge 011 which the djnunnd of thu War ren convention is bused, is au injustice, to which I cannot. consent. Thu principle ou which it is made rises above any merely per sonal consideration. It 1 ought to resign tor casting this vote every elective olllecr should teslgu whenever uny ol his olllcial acts, done in good I'ailh, lire etrongly djaapproved by Ihost) w ho elecleilhim.
