W» wish it lo be distinctly understood,
hvwovvr, that, as we hare uuifsrmly con
demned the whole affair, we do not intend
to undertake, at any time, the justification
of any portion of it. Tbosv who returned
their share of it are entitled to uo piaise.
fir they have dont but what it wan their
duty to do, while those who kept it must
be judged by their own con.titueuts, and
answer at the bar of publie opioion.
A second error the Commrrriul make»,
and one that is commonly made by Re
publican«. is that "the rots in tha House,
for the increase, was composed of a mojor- ,
ity of Democrats, and the vote in opposi
tion contained a Urge majority of lit pub
