To considered with closed doors. On it rat taking Ray seat in the Senate 1 called tiie attention of mom Bors to Tho subject As an anomaly in a Republican government hut was disposed to yield and did yield Ray own views to the generally expressed opinion of senators that it was a Wise policy under the circumstances and had worked Wilh the subject however has engaged much of my attention and reflection during the recess and i am More fully convinced that we have too much 0b-Cresy in our legislation and that As a matter of Republican. Principles it is clearly wrong to make secrecy Tho general Rule of the Senate. I do hot know . President that the opinions of the senators have undergone any change of this subject but i conceive it to to my duty to. Make a Colfort to bring Buck Tho government to it a clearly defined Republican track and to place myself fairly on record before the Public. I do not doubt that in times like these there Are matters which a Wise prudence rest tires us to consider in secret. My proposed amendment leaves it in the discretion of the Senate to to exercised however in open session under its responsibility to the people to consider such matters in secret. But in my opinion there Are Lar Fower Calls Lor Tho exorcism of such discretion than is generally supposed by the Senate. The. Reasons urged in support of resolve Tho solves into two propositions 1st. I is unwise to let the enemy know of on discussions. 2d.-it is unwise to lot our constituency know of our discussions. I do not think giving the fullest Force to both propositions that the doubtful Benefit accruing from the Fri at All equals the injury done to Public sentiment by depriving Tho people Ofa know logo of your proceedings. It must to borne in mind that no military plans Are devised Here no contemplated army movements Are known to senators. Financial questions with us would so Era to need no secrecy. Tho whole world a tows that to operate a alone upon our credit. With our own people. What is there then that requires hoc Rosy As a general Rule in the wide Range of the legislation i is infect Tea Type keep secret you publish Oil your Laws military and . Tho chief results of your deliberations Are mud known. But you conceal Froin your constituents your individual views. You. Conceal from them propositions which Are. Rejected Aud the names of those who reject them. You conceal from them the projectors offers which Are adopted and those who sustained drop posed them. You conceal irom them Tho Luct that plans were not proposed which in their opinion might have Boon wisely proposed Aud adopted. You conceal from them it so that class of legislative action of the two houses which May have been vetoed by the executive and you leave them entirely ignorant As to the Rola Liyo Wisdom Independence of their executive and their in such cases. These in my opinion constitute the great m ass of matter kept from the Public by secrecy and these i would unveil to the scrutiny of . In doings loan see but Little pm Olio Ovil which would result on the contrary Ngueh Public Good. It is said however that sen Timeus sometimes expressed by a senators would Huye a bad influence do the Pulie mind. I have a far different Ivow of the firmness Ami Wisdom of the Public mind. It has not been depressed by misfortune to our arms nor loss of territory hut on the contrary has been influenced by such misfortunes to a renewed exhibition of courage Energy and patriotism. There was a time doubtless in which the Public might Liao been Bis Daianu Iii he a do a Keil so the do the government that the great Public sentiment of our Puoplo to Day is of a higher cast of revolutionary Energy Wisdom and Devotion than that of their government agents. And the Only fear senators need entertain of Tho effect of giving publicity to their Proee rings would be a Stern demand that they eschew All a Clinco for to Success other than upon their constituency. To Call upon them More freely for men and Means to cart this War into the enemy a country. Sir on a memorable occasion in the history of this War it Iii transpire that there Hotd Bee somewhere in some depart Menva of the government legislative a executive an Ostun Ditzig want of comprehension of the Magut a of the crisis and to consequent failure a provide for a proper do Leuco of the country. I allude to Tolje fall of forts Tenry and Uono son and Roanoke Island to the rapid loss of Southern Kentucky of Middle Tennessee Andol Korth Alabama. The Public Lead been at ease since Tho balt a of Muna shas lured to repose and Confidence by the quiet engendered 6y secrecy in their own government and by Tho apparent inertness of Tho foe it was deemed that All was Well and that the government agents were As watchful Wise and energetic As the when in february last near half a million of the enemy rushed upon our Borders and took Possession of Large sections of Somo of on most vol Pablo territory and of the key to extent of Atlantic coast the people were aroused from their Case and shaken in their Confidence by finding that Tho country Hud neither men for arms in the Field at All adequate to its defence.

He wanted to up Over the River Holiad but had no pass and did not know that any would he needed. He stated that to was an Cornwall and a Miner by Trade. He had been working for some time in Pennsylvania but had lately received a letter from a brother a Farmer near London Cunado it est stating that to was Short of Heip and urging his Miner relatives to his assistance at least till the Harvest tilde was Over. The Miner held his tools in Ono hand and in the Otho carried an old carpet bag of Tho Black glazed style in common use.
