Mr. Chandler offered a resolution request
ing the President to communicate any pa
pers relative to the reopening of the ease of
FIta John Porter.
Mr. Chandler said It was time that the

matter. President Lincoln and Mr Stan

than any other men, had passed from the

about it than any men now living. He bad
promised Gen. Pope seTen years ago that he

his seat In the Senate. When Den. Mc
Clellan's army on the James was forced Into
a retreat, gold went up to an enormous
figure, our bonds went to low that It seemed
they would nerer touch bottom, and the
whole country was demoralised. Utn. Pope,
as he says, wae Instructed to coTcr Wash
ington at all haiards.
Daring those dark days be (Mr. C.) one
Sunday afternoon went Into the War Office,
and the whole subject turned on how (Jen.
McClellan's army was to be saved. Gen.
Wardsworth spoke of four different plans,
the last of which was to create as great a
diversion as possible here i and tbl was the
plan that wae substantially adopted. Gen.
Pope says In hie report he wst to make a
diversion on the enemy's rear Unei ao as to
enable McClellan's array lo take boataat
Harrison's Landing and go to Aqula Creek
or Alexandria. Gen. Pope at the same time
begged to be relieved .but his request was
nm aremled to. Oen. Pope's sole object was
to save McClellan's army. In his testlmeny
before the committee on the conduct of the
war, at that time, be stated that bis force was
only 44,000, ana wis awrioaieu aiong iw
tnllaa of iterance.
In answer to a question of his, (Mr.
Chandler's,) General Tope said there was
nothing more lixeiy .naa mat do wouiu oa
fallen upon and whipped, bat he said that
he could save hla men with the loss of his
artillery. General Pope then perpetrated a
rut tf gutrrt. He sent his scouts all
through toe mountains of Virginia to tell
the people that he had 130,000 men. lie
potted the newspaper correspondents In
Washington and through them the people
of the (forth, and he fooled the rebels.
Tbey came down on him, and McClellaa
was able to get off without so much as a
popgun being 11 red at him. General Pope
fought for eleven dais, he saved two armies
and made the most brilliant campaign that
had been mads op to that time.
Mr. O. then read from the telegraphic
correspondence tn August, 1353, between
Gen. McClellan and Gen. llalleckorderlng
the former to move kla troops from Aqula
creek to the defence of Washington. Geo.
UcClellanlntlstedthatthearmy could not be
moved In lens than a month, whereas It was
moved In 17 days. On the 20th Angutt
(Jen. llalleck telegraphed to Gen. Pope ap
proving of all he bad done. Gen. llalleck
again on the 2 lit telegraphed to Pope to
aLanri firm not to vleld an Inch, and to flltbt
like the devil. Gen. Pope carried out this
order lo the letter, he did fight for eight days,
and like whatever yon please to can it.
Then Lee had his whole army In front of
him. On the 21th August, six days before
Pope was overwhelmed, 80,000 Union troops
were within 20 miles of Pope, and not one
of them ever reached him.
On the 27tb of August Gen. Pope sent
word to Gen. Fits John Porter, who com
manded the best and freshest corps of the
army, to move forward to Barton's station
at daylight. Gen. Porter made no attempt
to obey this order. He said bts troop were
too tired. The enemy did not make the at
tack the next morning, but It was no thank
to Fit John Porter that Hooker, who wa
nnt nf ammunition, wa not fallen upon and
annihilated. Uy this disobedience of order
Fits John Porter rendered himself liable to
court-martial and death. It Is the duty or a
general to obey orders no matter what the
difficulties may be. A single day's forced
march would have nrouguiinese miny mou-
ami tronn tn tha acane of battle. After re-
tttti nrdera fieri. McClellan finally started
Franklin's corps, which made eighteen mites
In three days. Gen. King said that If the
single brigade of Franklin's corps had ap
peared In the field at 4 o'clock or that Satur
day we would have cent the rebel kltlog to
iiicnmooa. , ,

General Porter says he has nw testimony

Smart's cavalry tied bushes to the'r horses

Mr. Beck was aware of that fact, and was

Mr. Voorbess, of Ind., should vote for this

he preferred this bill to nothing. Now that
