Chairman nf theCommittee dissented from

was to present the factt for the action cf
the House. Tbe members implicated do-
c'ared themselves innocent ; that much of '
the testimony (as printed) was partial and
garbled ; that some of the witnesses wero
personal enemies, of hmg date, seeking
their injury ; that certain facts elicited
were misconceived, aud capable of satis-
factory explanation ; that the testimony ;
against them was cxparte, and gave them 1
no proper chance tor retutation : and, in :
conclusion they only asked for a FAIR TRIAL ,
that time and counsel be allowed them, I

and that the witnesses be confronted face ;
to face before them and their fellow Mem- j

quest, but in (what seems to us) a parox-

their request for a fair trial was refuted by ;

tbey have been unjust and precipitate in j
their conclusions. The three who resigned j
bad an undoubted right to a deliberate and j
impartial trial before the whole body ; a
private examination is not sufficient for a I
decision upon such a grave charge, affect-1
;ng ot ouy tU0S9 implicated, but also all

trial ; the real trial sh'd have been before
tbe whole Houte.
Most of the testimony was wholly intan
gible of proof, relying npon the credibility
of witnesses. A notorious hanger-on and
genteel loafer in Washington, Sweeney by
name, who was a bitter personal enemy of
Gilbert; and who Gilbert declared he o Id
prove unworthy of belief under oath such
