Congress will make an appropriation for

Learning the ellect of his llflu jpeech
to Ilogers, McDonald the day following
got Avery to send tlio following fur
him :

Just before his tlepartuii lor St. Louis,
McDonald strolled tliroughUogers' olllce.
There was 110 one there, anl he took from
under the blotting pad aorivate letter
from Urooks to iiogers.'u which the
lormcr, recomineiidlng a oange iu the
plan ot the raid, said : "It will be more
prohtablc thus." .Securing the letter,
McDonald passed 011 his way, and came
to St. Louis, leaving llabcock to manage
the rest, in his testimony Dongla.s tald :
"A copy ot the Urooks letter which was
stolen from my olllce was slown to me
by llabcock at the While Hou-e. Hu
Slated tliat It was a copy if a letter
which had passed between two of my
olllccrs and he felt it his duty :o tell 1110 1

how tlie letts-r to Mr. Ihner. 1 iti.ti.
eock agreed that I stiuultl do so. imt
should not tell him who g.uo It to me."
This ended thu plans for a raid for that
time, and llabcock sent the ilt-patch Iden
tified and in Ids hand handwriting:
