Although he kncw that therc wcre few Scnaiors who wonld concur with him. vot l.n -. td it to his constitucnts, and to his ositiou lieforc thc country. not to lct his vote go to the world without giving his rcasons for it. IIc would have kcn glad to have left this duty to ol.tcr and ablcr Iiands. IIc would have bccn glad, in order to get all thc possiblc light on this sublcct, whieh appcar ed so hard and unfathomable; but hc suppo.-cd the bill would pass through the fonus of a law. aal that it was only left for him to givc his rea sons and his votes against it. But no niattcr whcthcr thc lights of public documcnts wcrc to bc had or not, his coursc was dccidcd upon. IIc should go againn the bill hc was oppo;cd lioth to regulars and voluntecrs; and if thcre was anv other descriplion of troops, hc should vote against them. IIc would opposc thc appropriatiou of a single dollar to tlic forcc in thc field, Wvond thc amount that was ncccssary to bring them homc, by thc vcry shortcst and chcapcst routc. It was hcld to lic patriotic to go for a war, when wc get into it, right or wrong; and thc l'rcsident, at thc last scssion, had oflicially dcclarcd all those op poscdtohis warasguiltyof trcason. Quccn E lizahcth doubtcd the undcrsranding and wisdom of the mcmbcrs of parliamcnt, nnd adviscd them not to meddlc with state afT.iirs. So had our l'rcs ident doubtcd thc patriotism of Congress. 3Ir.

As thc blood of ourfcllow men docs not belong to that school of" morals, or such bcing pcrverscd, in not coming right, anothcr question is, what coursc docs it lic comc those who bclicvc thc -our.try involvcd in n ur winni is so nnjns:, nrc 10 purrne ! comc Scnaiors, by a sort of areumcnt I cannot comnrc- hcnd. think that, whilc tlic war is unjust, ihcy arc bound to vote men and nioncy, throwing tlie rc siionsibility upon the l'rcsident. I cannot scc how this is donc. Such opposition is just what is wantcd. Ifyoufollow this coursc, you will not find any artielcs in thc govcmmcnt organ about factious oppoition.
