He is implacable only when asked t compromise a principle. Although t" quarrel with the Executive promised to be the defeat of his life's ambition, he did not hesitate to make the sacrifice when the pre rogatives and dignity of the Senatorial office were impugned. He read the constitutional provision that appointments to office should he made "with the advice and consent of the Senate,' " and it is owing to his heroic attitude in the premises that this plain provision of our fundamental law has not boon ignored. It is Htter-y impossible for tha President of the T nited StLtes to personally know of the merits of all oSioe Beckers, and hence the provision f the law and the custom of the country have agreed that the representatives from the sev eral States should advise in the selection. Had the President fallowed the time-honored precedent, and taken advice before making appointments, the late disagreeable fiasco in the cases of the New York offices would have been avoided. Surely the office of United States Senator is sf dignity sufficient to enti tle him to suggest proper men for appoint- j uitnt in his own State, when its people and their wauls are just v.hat he was especially ejected to represent.
