Such men as tho Senator from Massachusetts only porfurm tho bane omeo of muddying the fountain. He is not nt ror any other work. On this subject Mr. Webster hold that it trm the undoubted right ot legislators to bumh mo acts or public mon." That this right waa as undoubt as the right 01 oreathlng or walking the earth. It is tho last right he would abandoned. He would exercise it at all hazzarda At au nnrable distance, and in his feeble way, ho inteudsd to follow tho fcroat expounder ol the Constitution. The Senator from Massachusetts seems to havo installed himself as a sort of overseer of this body, and h was not surprisod at this dictatorial manner in which ho bustled about, ad mini6tenng rebukes in this and in, the other House. He hud oerauadud him self that he is tha Government, aud i particularly assnrod that he is the Senate, at least the largest and most important part ot it. Laughter.
