AVc find in the National Intelligencer *
i card by Daniel Webster, in reference to a
, report by their Congressional reporter of a
(debate in the Senate last week, in which Mr. ;
Manguru. in opposing the bill for a public
printer, deprecated " taking away tho prit)
; ting of the Department and giving it to the po
1 litical press, "and then made the following dis
paraging allusion to Mr. Webster;
' " Mr°Mangum said, perhaps thcrc were
occasional petty, paltry tricks committed in
A® departments. Recently one was com
mitted and that to by the great man of tlic
Whig party; he meant the Secretary of State* j
a trick unworthy of him unworthy of bis
position, and disgraceful to his party, so far j
as ho could effi'ct it, which was not to a slight 1
extent, aud which shortly would not be to any
extent." !
Mr. Webster thus replies to Mr. Mangum's
charges : !
Upoo inquiring, through a friend, l learn .
from Mr. Mangum that his observations were ;
iutended to apply to the Wilmington Com ■,
mercial," conducted by Mr. Loring, as a paper
to pubish the laws in North Carolina ; and to

of this morning, asking for a statement of the
conversation between <Jen Bierce and myaelf
in relation to tbc abolition report of hi^ New
Boston speech has just been handed me, and
as the conversation alluded to, was not private
or wnfidential, but took place in the presence
of several gentlemen, amongst whom, 1 re
member J. T. Sim«, Esrj., and Col. J. F.
Coalman, of Mississippi, Mr. Josselyn of
j "the Bay State," Mr. Russell of Boston, and
Mr. Quarles of Louisiana, 1 have no hesisU •
j lion in complying with your request.
1 As a Mississippi planter and a democrat, l
felt a deep interest in ascertaining the truth

true, not to vote iu the coming clcetjpu, m I
! should then couceivo (Jen. Bierce to be a*
. obnoxious to the smih.'.as I knew Gen. Scott
; to he. In the presence of the gentlemen rc
forred to. I laid before Gen. Bierce tbe Lou
