et'ibracitij the various chusical authors, and tin most useful j
branch' - of Mathematics. From several years ot practical e.xpe-1
rienr.* in teaching, (having applied himsclt closely to studies) and
from tile le-t of public examinations, the undersigned feels an as- j
Kurance and conli'lence, that students in this institution can be as '
thoroughly and properly inslrnctcd in their i lassical acijiiireinents, j
and prepared for necessary business transactions, as in any similar |
institution in the State. And in presenting the institution to pub-1
In* patronage, the undersigned deems it not improper to express |
his views and opinions upon the subject ot teaching, lie deems j
it essential on the part of the teacher, first to make himself ac
quainted with the disposition and capacity of the pupil, if the 1
capacity or perception of the pupil be unready and slow to com
prehend, the teacher must be patient and slow in Imparting infor
mation, (however keeping the inind closely exercised, and care
fully ax oiding to fall in the other extreme,) that the mind may pro
perly comprehend the master. When th? faculties of the mind
are properly trained by a syteui of reasoning and thinking, there- j
by developing itself, it xvill enlarge and expand according to the !
apnlieation and persrverance of the student. 11 industry and tip-1
plication be wanting on the part of the student, the teacher must
use means adapted lo the disposition to effect the object. If the i
mind be clear and comprehensive, added to industry and applica- j
Hon, the task to instruct is not un|ileasing.
The undersigned observes, that his school will he governed by
sound and w holesome discipline, that he designs to le-Ad rather j
than force the mind, but coercive means will be resorted to, if lie-;
cessitv require it. The undersigucd further observes to hi* pat- !
ronsa'nd friends, that his school the present year, has been liberal
ly supported and patronised, and rests with confidence upon their
further support and encourageme nt, and trusts that however for
tune may frown or favor, that merit will not be unrewarded by a
liberal public.

to a member of the House from North Carolina, with a !
view that it might be shown to some one of the State
Rights party of South Carolina. It was shown bv '
him, as it ought to have been, first to the Speaker, and,
with his advice, to another gentleman of distinction!!
All considered it a gross overture ofhriliiry. The mem- ?

letter the term in making it, and gave assurance i
that It "adroitly managed," the whole Federal vote,
could be concentrated on Gen. Green for the purpose:

making d^ly professions of their great anxiety to* reme- j

Refore the meeting of Congress, a friend >f Gales

of an Ultimate friend o| theirs in \\ ashinrjton, to know |
whether I would enter into an arrangement with them,
u hereby the printing ol the House could be obtained j
lor our miitua! benefit: and at his instance, J went to
Washington for the purpose of arranging the matter i
with (mles & Seaton. I called on their friend, whoi
told me that lie hail seen Mr. Beaton, and was authorized |
to offer me the same consideration that they had given
the Kditor of the Madisonian, which he alleged to l-e
.<>.{,011(1 for each session. I told him in reply, that 1 '
could not agree to submit any proposition to the consi- j
deration of my friends, but an arrangement recogniz
ing me as one of the printers of the ?Iou:-e: thntlhcv i
had disapproved of the arrangement with .Mr. Allen,
and that I would not u?k them to give the printing on-1
der like circumstances. We, however, agreed on the i
basis of an agreement to be submitted by him to Gales 1
& Seaton, and by me to my friends, by which 1 was
?.j be interested with them in the printing, as a partv
in the election. 'I he only objection suggested was ni'v
estimate of tie* profits. I saw sevenii friends, mem- j
hers ?.f Congress, and they satisfied me that, under the
peculiar situation ??} parties, no arrangement, by which |
1 should in any wise participate in the printing, could
be made without subjecting them to the imputation of,
using the power accidentally placed in their hands to
bestow office on their personal friend?that this imputa
tion would impair their moral power, and weaken their i
influence, which should be brought in aid of the!
great questions now before the country. Re fore Ij
had an opportunity of seeing Gales & Seaton s friend .
nnd of communicating these views to him, I received '<
a note declining on their part the arrangement. This'
was before the decision of the House on?the N. Jersey I'
question. After that was decided against them, an at- !
tempt was made to renew the negotiation with me '
through the same and other channels, when 1 refused ; i
to entertain the proposition, and frankly gave the rea-11
sons for doing so. I have said this much, because my | I
silence might be construed into an admission that, for ' t
the purpose of driving a bargain with Gales ?V e?<.ton !
I had asserted a power of bestowing the printing of j
is, that the proposition em:ie from their friends, was1
sanctioned by Mr. Seaton, who authorized one of his
friends to propose terms, which were refused; and the
arrangement proposed by me was declined, only be
cause at the time it was declined, they believed that
they would be elected without the aid of my friends,
or else that they would make more favorable terms.?
When they found Hint they could not be elected with
out the aid of my friends, an attempt was made to renew
the negociation, when they were told that my friends
would not become a partv fo any arrangement what
soever. * " DUFF G RE F.N*.
(From the National IntcUitrcnrrr.}
A publication in the Globe of Tuesday night, em
bracing a note from Mr. Duff Green, in reference to
certain alleged negotiations between him and othera
concerning the election of Printer, requires brief notice
at our hands.
The allegation is, substantially, that some friend of;
ours made an overture to Mr. Green, with a view to i
secure, through him, the co-operation of his interest in
Congress in favor of the publishers cf this paper as j
Printers to the House.
Surprising though it may appear to some, there are j
many individuals, (of both parties, we are happy to
say.) among the older inhabitants of this city, who feel j
a strong interest in the fortunes of the .National Iutelli-!
gencer, and of its proprietors. One of tiiese long-'
attached friends, influenced by his good will for us, j
and, possibly by other motives unknown to us, on his j
own motion, just before the meeting of Congress,;
opened a communication with Mr. Green, with a vietv j
to his aid in obtaining the printing of the House for the
National Intelligencer, and received from him certain,
definite propositions; and then, and not till then, in
formed us of the transaction. We forthwith addressed
to that friend the following note, which had the in
tended effect, as we understood, of putting an imme
diate stop to the business:
" Pe?r Sir: Wc cannot have, In any manner or form, any in
" t<"rview. confcrence, correspondence, or understandlue with
" P. G., directly or indirectly. But any engagement or respomi
" hility, pecuniary or otherwise, which your friend?hip rtay hare
" placed you tinder for our interest, wc shall connider ourtelrei
" bound in honor to make good.
" November 24."'
This note, as we have said, put an immediate stop to
the affair, and it was not renewed, with our privity or
knowledge. We hare iince learned, indeed, that Mr.
Green came to the City and renewed the matter to the
sa:uf gentleman, a week or ten days afterwards; I Ait
, his proposition, whatever it was, was not entertained so
I ar as to be commnnicaled to us. .
i Washinoto.v, Jan. IS.?-It will seen from our
i Congressional column, that Mr. Graves took us round
I ly t? task this morning before the Hon3e of Represen
1 tativcs. We have only to offer a few words of expla
j nation in reply.
j When the proposition of Mr.^olcs, of Virginia, to
i amend the rules to prevent the continued agitation of
j the Abolition question, hv laying the petitions on the
j table without debate, failed bv a very few votes, we tin
! derstood from several members, and pome who voted
j against it, that it wax only because it was not strictly
i couforirraMe to tlie proposition of the last year, in which
; the Northern and Southern Democrats had concurred.
We learned, also, that the mover was willing to accept
: an amendment to adapt it-tftlie views of those who con
i rurred in the ofajvet, but objected to the terms of the pro
! position, and that to effect this a reconsideration would
; (,<? ti?????-rt. Jn passing through the House yesterday, af
i ter .Mr. Graves hnd withdrawn his motion for reconsider
i ation, we were told that i\lr. Thompson and others were
| in favor of reconsideration, and that it would have been
! moved by Mr. Thompson, or some friend of the propo
sition, if 3lr. Graves had not done it; but that, in con
I sequenceJw his motion for reconsideration on the first
] dav, andAvitlitVfftrnl nf if yesterday ,-lhe time had pass
ed within which it was allowable to make it ; and,
, therefore, tlie measure intended to arrest the discussion
of a subject which does not belong to Congress, and
which excited bitter sectional animosities, had fallen,
and could not \>e resuscitated. These facts, so stated
to its by a member, we did not doubt; and as Mr. Graves
i is devoted to tin party which sustains Harrison for Pre
; sident, and as tie latter was notoriously put in nomina
' tion bv the aic of the Abolitionists in the Harri-iburg
j Convention, aid those desirous of conciliating that inte
I rest in the Nerth, to put down the Administration, we
' cou!d not snvless than tliai :t "looked like finesse" in one
; opposed to IVr. Coles on party grounds, and to his propo
! sition, f:r..t t? move its reconsideration a;. a privileged
! question, anl subsi quently to withdraw it when it was
i too late fur another to move it. It was, however, a motion
which Mr. Graves had a right to make, and a right t>.
, withdraw. t:iJ, therefor.', we did not charge him with
i fraud, as lx- gr ituitouslv affirms; and we were wholly
! unacquainted with the circumstances to which he re
; fers, that made it a point of courtesy with him to wi'h
i dm wit. It'we had been apprized of them probably
the supposit on of'?p-;.?.*.* r would not have occurred to
ns. We arc willing to ./hv credit to Mr. Graves for
; tlie motives he himself assigns for his course, but we
! were not i iformed of them until lie explained tlicm
; this morniit. The transaction, however, t.-aches one
lesson, wh'cii should not tie forgotten. If tlie friends
of a propor tion, who vote againstit, because they can
not adopt i's terms, wish it reconsidered with a view
to its amendment, some one of them should always en
ter a motion f?r reconsideration, although anticipated
bv one of that party whom they know to be, in the
main, opposed to it. A person in such circumstances
in.iv give v.av to his party's importunities, or some
other impulse, and withdraw it.
We m?\v turn to another complaint made to tlie House
against us thu- morning by Mr. Graves. Mr. Boyd, in
replv t-. .Mr. Graves, partly explains our defence, but
net fully.
When Mr. Boyd asked us to correct what Mr. (.raves
called a misrepresentation of the Globe, of the remarks
in which he u.?c<! the word "Loafers," in illustration of
his views of the intrusion of Messrs. D.ckerson, \ room,
?\c., into the House, we understood that it was under
our editorial head that the misstatement was made ?
We d.il not recollect that we had adverted to the sub
ject in an editorial notice, and so stated to Mr. Boyd;?
but supposing that something migut have been said cdi
toriall v, and forgotten, or remnrks from another print,
having allusion to it. might have been introduced with
an ed'lorial article, and have escaped our observation,
we sent word to Mr. Graves by Mr. Hoyd, that it he
would point to the publication in which wc had done
injustice to his remarks note oi what he said on
the floor. ?? ^ ""lo give n9 pleasure to maKe the correc
tion ; and we also suggested that if the mistake was in
the proceedings as given by our Reperter, it should be
there corrected. We heard nothing more of this mat
ter, until assailed this morning on the floor of the House,
alter a lapse of almost a month.
It appears from the remarks of Mr. Graves to-day,
that it was an omission on the pnrt of the Reporter for
the Globe, ami not a misrepresentation of the Editor,
that lie desired to have corrected. Nobody knows bet
ter than Mr. Graves that such corrections are almost i:i
variablv made, by a note or verbal explanation, to the
Reporters, who are, during every day's session, acces
sible to the members or their messengers. Wc I.link
Mr. Graves himself litis mule corrections in writing of
reports m the National Intelligencer. What right had
lie then to expect theT.ditor of the Globe to correct re
marks that he did not hear, and w hich the author of
them would give no written statement showing where
in thev were"inistak. il, or how they were to be cor
In the particular case referred t", we have ascertain
ed, since Mr. Graves's explanation of this morning,
that the report complained of was taken by Mr. Mc
Kinlev, now at Harrisburir-. known, there and here, as
a most estimable man and "faithful reporter. From his
character, we are certain that tlio omission ;os acci
dental ; and on inquiry of a member particularly con
cerned, the accidental omissii n is easily explained.?
When Mr. Graves made use of the phrase "i.oai n;>,
(which he now< harr.cterizcs as"rilnldor I'lrli'iiard,' )
there was a general motion in the Hall,and Mr. Graves,
turning towards where Messrs. Dickerson, \ room, and |
the reiTt sat, averted his face from our Reporter s box.
from which lie wa? distant si the width of the
Hall r.nd added in a somewhat softened tone, that If
in lit iii no tlis res/it ct, Ac. This, our Reporter, we pre
Mime, did not hear, ami therefore iiiJ not report.
In the case of such an omission as this, Mr. Graves,
it seems, will not resort to the ordinary course of cor
rection. ' If he is niisreported hereafter, he says, he
will move the House for the expulsion of the Reporter
of the (?lobe; and his task must either be undertaken
with this condition, or Mr. Graves proposes that he be
not reported at all in the Globe. In placing us in this
dilemma, Mr. Stanlv seemed to concur entirely with
Mr Graves; nav, worse, although we have never hesi
tated to insert "his own explanations and additions,
(which be termed corrections,) yet he is not satisfied
with his appearance in the Globe. We can construe
the alternative these gentlemen have left into nothing
t?ut a request that their remarks and speeches shall not
hereafter appear in our paper, and in this they shall be
tr ratified. _

Tile very dcl.cate Editors of tfc Intell.gcnccr are

Now, let me stop here, and Fiiwhat this friend had
done that induced these nice amfastidious gentlemen
forthwith to put an i in media tcJVr.p to the business.
Why he lnd opened a comniuiiition with Mr. Green,
with a view to his aid in obtain!,' for them the print
iner of the House of Represent!ves. It this was all,
?hv should he be stopped forthth in such business?
Was there any harm in it? MGrcen might surely
aid fif he thought it right,) W.tain the printing for
them, and might fairly be ask4to do so. They say
themselves that "they rcould ha been glad to rcecire
aid from any quarter, openly ton, in obtaining work
in the line of their profession. ]Why, then, scop this
friend of theirs, if he was onlytk.ng for them this
aid which thty would hate beenid to receive from am,
quarter ? They say they woul*glad torece.ve such
aid from any quarter, openly pj; and 9toP l^e'r
frisnd who is seeking to obtain Is aid from Mr. Green.
Is this not a plain confession that ihe aid this friend
was seeking to obtain from Mr. Green was not to lir?
"openly gitafh," or such as would bear the light? ^ I hey
sat out by endeavoring to show tliat seine triend ol
theirs, without their knowledge, made communications
with a view to obtain Mr. Green's aid for them, and
gets propositions from him; nnd then they are inform
ed of it. And then, although they would be glad to
get such from any quarter, if openly girea, they write
their note to this frieifd to put a stop to the business!
This friend's communication, then, was not with a
view to have Mr. Green's aid openly gicen, for, it so,
he would not have been slopped. So; it was to be ^i
ven secretlv, under cover. There was to he a private
understanding; in other wcrds, a concealed bargain.
There mas to he "an engagement or respotisihifit>J,pecu
niaryur otheriysc," which they bound themselves, in n
note, to "make good." Al ter Sir. MitehefT s letter, and
the former bargain with Allen, together with the note
to which we allude, every body will understand this.
Well, this communication goes to Mr. Green, and
then came his definite propositions in answer to it; and
"then, and not till then," these most innocent and ig
norant gentlemen are informed of the business. Let
us see how they take it. This brings us to the diplo
matic note. They would have been glad of aid, if
openly given; but this they cannot take. The commu
nication and the definite propositions in answer to it,
are quite a shock to their delicacy, and tbey n:!2St,
furtlnrith, write a note to this communicating friend
to put an immediute stop to the business, and t ike
care, at the same time, to keep a copy of it f<>r publi
[Here follows the note in the preceding column.]
Would this friend understand this as requiring that
an immediate stop should be put to the business? \V itn
out being much of an adept in these mysteries, would he
not see that the note told him that these gentlemen could
not have, in any manner or form, direct or indirect, in
terview, conference, correspondence or understanding
with Duff' Green, but that he might; and that these
most high-minded and generous men had such regard
for and'confidence in lino, (notwithstanding Ins com
munication to get this secret and inadmissible m>rt oi
aid for them,) that they "icouid j'eel bound in honor to
make i'tu>d any engagement or responsibility, pecuniary
arotlnririse, irhiclt lusfriendship may lime pineal him
it mil r for their interest:
Sure!\ here was a carle blanche for him. Broader nu
thority i<> make any bargain for any aid, open or secret,
he could not ha\e desired.
In printing this note they have italicised the words
"mail hare pii/crd you under, and here a consciousness
of "nilt peeps out from under the cover thus put over
these words. Thev saw that their note would lead any
man to infer that they meant to bind themselves to :i
bargain thus made for tiiem by another, and they mark
those words to show that they only meant to hold
tliemselves thus bound in honor; in case t.ieir lnend
had then, at that time, placed himself under any en
?r.T'ement for them, and not for any luture engagement
fie?mig!it make. Hut this friend must have been a
child, indeed, not to understand that, it they would lul
iil jin'en^agement then made bv him for them, they
would siTso fulfil one he might afterwards make for
them, if equally adv intageous. Why should they not.'
Hositles, to "ive it this past sense was absurd; for, lrom
their own showing, tins friend, they knew, had placed
himself then under rio engagement for them, lie had
<iulv communicated to Mr. Green, ami had received
his propositions, which were submitted to them. He
knew, and they knew, that the matter stood upon these
propositions, that there was no engagement made for
them. Tin; words, therefore, had no sense but a pros
pective one.
A?ain, let it be considered to whose agoncy and cn
<m"ements, whether past or future, they were thus
committing their honor. A man who, by their ac
count of what lie had done, had sought aid for them in
a wav too disreputable for thent to take it; and they are
to stop the business in his hands immediately, by let
tin-r him sec that they feel in honor b'-und to fulfil any
engagements, pecuniary or otherwise^ he may hau
placed himself under lor them.
A nd was it stopped by this note? They say: "We have
since learned, indeed, that Mr. Green camc to the city,
anil renewed the matter lo the same gentleman a week
or ten davs afterwards." Yes, this was just what might
have been expected, just what they expected. Atter
this note Mr. Green comes to the city, and the matter,
so immediately and decidedly to be stopped, is renew
ed between hini and tli.s triend, who had receiver the
note which was "intended to put a stop to the affair.'
\ nd now, it'the affair is stopped, it certainly has not
been stopped for the want of full powers in the l.iend
and representative of the Editors of the Intelligencer,
nor in their want of diplomatic skill or willingness to
obtain aid from any quarter, even if not openly given.

Saturday, January 17, lc'40.
The SPEAKER announced to the House thnt the
subject before it was the special order, being the propo
sition of Mr Thompson of South Carolina, to amend
the rules bv the addition of the following;
lie sol ted', That, upon the presentation of any memo
rial or petition, proving lor the abolition ot slavery or
Ihe slave trade in any District, Territory, cr State of
the I'nion, and upon the presentation ol any resolu
tion, or other paper touching that subject, the reception
i?f such memorial, petition, resolution, or paper, t?nail
k- considered as objected to, and the question oj its re
ception shall be laid on the table, without debate, or iur
liier action thereon.
Mr SLADE, who was entitled to the floor upon t.ns
iubjeet, was proceeding, but was interrupted by
Mr LEFT, who asked him to give way lor the pur
pose of enabling him to make a motion that the House
iiroceed to the election of public printer. Jle said that
it was indispensably necessary that provision should be
made to have the printing executed?that the public
msiness was suffering. The Chairman ol the Com
mittee of Ways and Means made a motion on jester
lav to provide temporarily for printing, it being, he
jaid', on the ground that it was absolutely necessary to
facilitate the public business. Mr. L. was progress
ing in some further remarks, when lie was interrupt'
'.Mr. SLADE, who claimed to proceed with his re
marks; but was again interrupted bv
Mr B1DDLE, who wished, he said, to present to the
House a petition with which he had been charged for
several days, on the subject of safety guards to prevent
jxplosions of steamboats. ? .
Mr. SLADE said, that if any way could be devised
"or him to permit the motions, and vet

Mr. HIDDLE made a motion that the petition would

Mr. FISHER rose and said: The House will recol
ect thnt, on yesterday, I made known to it that I was
ihsent from the hall when the gentleman from N. York
mbinittedacopy of his letter to Gen. Green, and his re
narks upon it; and that I could not then take notice of
hem, for the reason that I did not hear them. I stated,
lowever, that when these remarks should appear in the
tapers, if I esteemed them of such a character as to
cquire a notice from me, I should notice them this morn
nir, I have read the report of the gentleman's remarks
ti"the National Intelligencer of this morning, and I take
t for granted that the report is correct, though I have
een informed by some gentlemen of U113 House, that
nme things are reported to have been said by ta gen
leman, which were not delivered by him to the House,
Such as they were, they require some slight noticc
rom me. ,
I need scarcely allude to the circumstance that tue
cntleman chose to deliver tiiose remarks in my ab
ence. Whether this was done inadvertently, or v. ith
view of "managing the thing adroitly, I leave it to
(lis House to conclude; but I will say for myself, tha
never will rise on this fl"or and direct my remarks to
irentleman behind his back, or in his absence. 1 look
;7-;n this procedure as not in accordance with what a
entleman should do. But the letter of the gentleman
; before t!ie public; my statement is before the public;
lie statement of the gentleman is before the public, and
will leave it to them to 6ay ^ether the letter docs
ot bear out every thing I said. What did I say.' I
riH read an extract from the gentleman s letter, to show
ow fully it agrees with my statement. Mr. F. here
ead the following extract:
"It has occurred to me and other of my political
riends, that such an arrangement could be made with
ou as'would justify the entire Whig party in support
ig vou for that office."
Vow, what was the arrangement that would justify
ic entire Whig parly in supporting Gen. Green for that
ffice ? The letter tells. It is this:
"Now, what had passed through my mind, was sim
ly this ; that vou should, in the event of your election,
ffer Gales &, Seaton to share equally with them,re
sectively, tbs profits of the office, after allowing town
a fair compensation out, for their peraotfersurviceti, they
to do all tin- work at their office, and Vm t0 be elected
to the station.
"The profits cannot be less for the whole Congress
than $:}0,00O; this would give you ?10,001), you lia'vin '
no trouble <>r responsibility whatever."
Tliat is the consideration, Mr. F. said. It is very
true the gentleman says he "suggests tliis on his owii
re?ponj*ibiIity|)Ut. he goes on to say, "but neverthe
less, 1 hazard nothing in the conjecture, that it vou are
here and put in, the tiling can be managed adroitly
enough to insure success." ' I know not, said Mr. F.,
w hat the gentleman's ideas-of ethics mav be; he ina\
think there is nothing like bribery in his proposition;
but I leave it to the House and to the world, to sav
whether iu object was not to move in a certain direc
tion, and offering $1(1,1101) to produce a certain resiflt.
II it were proper to refer to General Green s letter ;t
would show that he looked upon the thing as uuintin?
'lirecjjy to certain gentlemen in this House. The gen*
tlejnan says lie spoke of no rotr.i, and alluded to no
particular individual; but was it to be supposed that he
would come out in a matter of this kind, and name in
dividuals occupying a pirticular position on this floor?
The gentleman knows how to "manage such thin?x too
adroitly" to become so very specific as to name"indi
vidual:!, or even to name their party name or designa
tion. My object, however, said Mr. F., in rising, Is to
say, that my statement is before the world, with tho
letter of the gentleman and his statement, and let the
world judge how they agree together. The main lead
ingobject of the gentleman's letter, was the offer of
CiltVKKI to produce a certain r..s ,!t. I slaK.d t|jat iri
many words, and the letter will be.? oul jn jt
Mr. MITCHELL said the House would bear him out
in the assertion that he had acted throughout in this
matter in self-defence. In reference to this bm;',n08s lie
was not accountable. He rose ysterda y to reo\-. r? |l s
promise to the House which he made when first ho a,:"
dressed them on the subject, and was not aware t! it
the gentleman from North Carolina was not in the Hall"
till he looked around and found his seat vacant. He
had given notice that as soon as he received a c my of
his letter to Gen. Green, he would lay it before the
Mouse, and at the earliest moment after receiving "it",
j he redeemed his promise. H- would now e.iii rli "at
tention of the gentleman from .North Carolina to some
tiling in his statement which he, (Mr. M.) wished him
to explain?for it seemed strange that the gentleman
should recollect so distinctly the particular words which
appear in the letter when they are not in it at all. The
gentleman in this statement savs.
"Tin- gentleman from New Vork commences t.'ie
letter by saying that it had been distinetly asceitained
that Messrs. Gales ?.V S:-aton could not be elected
I'ublic Printers, and tint his aversion to Mr. Blair was
so g.a-at that he was disposed to go all h ngiiis to defeat
his election, and that lie believed that by the acqui
sition ol a few votes, Gen. Green could be elected
.Vow, said .Mr. M , there is not a single word of this
character in my letti r. 1 did not allude to ?he aciiu:si
tion nt a few votes, nor did I say that niv aversion to
Mr. Biair was so great that I would go ail length* to de
teat Ins election. And I said that I did not wish Gen.
Green to doany act that was not justifiable to his con
science and to the world. It was to that particular part
ol the gentleman's statement that I wish to call his
Mr. IISH Ml replied: In giving mv statements, I d:d
j not pretend to give the exact words i"n the gentlem m's
j letter, nor did I pretend to give all that was in it. 1
forgot the most material parts of it?1 forgot all about
!"adroit management." As to what 1 said ahou* Mr.
Blair, I as!; if the letter does n-.t justify me in what i
said; I will quote the gentleman's o*.\ n words: "I
have a strong desire to defeat B! air, and would be glad
to do so in a way to oblige you personally." But,"* .-,
I have done with the subject.
Mr. GRA\ E5 here rose and called the attention or"
the House to an article which appeared in the Globe of
yesterday evening, in which, he sa d, it was intimated,
that he had been gu.ltv of a finesse, by which a fraud
was practised on the House. Mr. G. then read the fol
'?In the House, the Abolition discussion is continued.
Mr. Coles's resolution, which would, if passed, have
closed the debate, wa3 laid on the table. Mr. Graves,
some days ago, moved a reconsideration; and this pre
vented Mr. Thompson of Mississippi from nioying it,
Mr. Graves, to-day, having earned the reconsideration.'
withdrew the motion, and so Mr. Coles's proposition,
was lost, it being held that it was too late for any oth?r
to move the reconsideration. This looks like finesse.
If, said Mr. G., I made this motion, and had after
wards withdrawn it with the view of preventiii" the
gentleman from Mississippi, or any other gentle'man
from making it, I should have committed a fraud on
him, and on thr? House; but my object is now to show
that I d.d no such thing. I mentioned my intention of
moving the reconsideration to some gentlemen of the
House, and to avoid interfering with the discussion go.
ing on, I postponed it until the latest hour at which
the motion could be made.
When I thought the IIause was about to adjourn, I
rose and remarked to the Speaker that I offered my
motion now, because it could not be made after tint
day. I did not observe who had the floor, nn'1 the
gentleman from Georgia observed thai he yield -d it
to me. I then subrnittted the motion with-.ut hav ng
heard from the gentleman from Mississippi, ()r with!
out having the least idea that he contemplated m i.
king such a motion; nor did I believe that he or nnv
other gentleman intended to make it. I should I' el
myself unworthy of the seat I occupy here, if I
were capable ot deceiving any gentleman, ;'r by
any sort of finesse preventing him from offering a
motion to this House. Neither the genii.-man front
Mississippi, nor any other ge ntleman, could say that lie
desired to make such a motion. Win n I perceived that
it was the determination of the House that if this re
consideration prevailed, the question on the resolution
of the gentleman from South Carolina should betaken
at once, and thus cut off the debate?the remarks of
the gentleman from Georgia, (Mr. Colquitt,) who yield
ed him the floor, among others, I proposed to postpone
the consideration until three o'clock, and that proposi
tion not appearing satisfactory, I proposed to postpone
it until twelve o'clock to-day. Both these propositions
appearing to be unacceptable, and finding that, by per
sisting in my motion the debate would be cut off, I
stated to the House that I could accomplish my object
in an independent way, and would therefore withdraw
my motion. So, Sir, the charge that I was guilty ot'
finesse, by which the gentleman from Mississippi "was
prevented from making his motion, is without any
Before I take my seat, Mr. G. said, I wish to make
a remark or two in relation to another charge against
me, which originated in the Government organ. In a
report of liic proceedings of this House, made by the
oi-L. r-Ui.on hi itie >ew Jorscy contested election
ease, he vtps represented as saying that "the members
from New Jersey, who held the Governor's certificate,
were entitled to their seats; and it was not in the pv<ver
af this body to prevent them from taking them. He
had no idea that they should Lo excluded, because fi\o
loafers might see proper to come there and claim their
Now, at the time he made these remarks, lie express
y disclaimed applying the term loafers to either of the
lets of claimants from New Jersey, and the Iiit>d!igen
?er of the day reported him correctly as makingthe
lisclaimer. But by the report in the Globe, it appear
?d that he had denounced the gentlemen who came on
n opposition to the returned members as five loafers.
Phis report was made the foundation, in several of the
lewspnpers of the North,and particularly in one of them
Mr. G. alluded to the New F.ra of N. York,] for tie- most
iolent attacks on him, representing him as a blackguard
n using language on that floor unbecoming a member
.f the body. L nder these circumstances, he appealed to
me of the N. Jersey gentlemen, (Mr. Dickerson,) with
rhom lie was acquainted, to know whether he under*
tood him as using that offensive language, and that gert
loman assured him that he had not. He then appli d to
ne of his colleagues, who belonged to the Adminis*
ration party, to go to Mr. Blair and point out the m
jstice his report had done him, and to ask him fo cor
ed it. His colleague did go to Mr. Blair, and a*k
im to make the necessary correct.on of his report;
ut he was answered that he must receive a note, point
ing out the error, which he would insert in his paper.
Jow, as he did notchoose to enter into a corre?*> nd-ncc
?ith the editor cf the Globe, the matter rested. It
eems tome, said Mr. G., that when we admit persons
ere as reporters of debates, if they report remarks of
ersons to whom they are politically opposed, they
hould do it fairly, and not by reporting one sentence,
nd suppressing the qualification, convey a different
lea of the speaker's meaning. For my own part, I
,'ould not care whether they reported rue at all?but if
bey do report my remarks, I wish them to report all
bat I say. If I had known the Reporter of the Gh be,
?ho made the report to which I have adverted, I would
ave moved to expel him from the Hall. I will vote,
ir. G. said, to expel any Reporter from this Hall who
ares to misrepresent a political adversary by reporting
part ot his speech that may do him injustice, and not
sporting the other part necessary to make him under*
tood. After tome further remarks from Mr. Graves,
