When the House and tho country cume to know As tho committee knows what prompted Liis attack they will a Precy ate it quite As Well As the committee Dees. Tho committee encountered opposition from Trio gentleman from Quot Pennsylvania or. Stevons the chairman of the Cummi Ttoe of Means in the Early stages of their investigation. It was omy when the committee in Trio Way of its duty came to throw itself Between Trio Treasury us Trio United state and a private speculation in which one Pinion Stevens was interested and through which �90,000 was Tobe taken -. 1,203,300 this document in the face of the solemn declarations of the then Secretary of War that to had never made one of these contracts Rev Ala contracts made by Hini acid by his order to Inq amount of one million eight Hundred and thirty six thousand nine Bun dred muskets and that upon the vory Day he i it 6j the a Treasury of tie o used states with undo this a of Day iof j Anun.

Whiff his nomination was pending in the Senate a put his hand to a contract for swords and sabres to an unlimited amount. Ail that Trio parties resident in Philadelphia could furnish in six months and this to. Against the protest of the chief of ordnance now before to in print. It was a contract that had expired or was about to expire by its limitation Aud the chief of Ordaneo refused to extend and gave this reason for doing so addressed to the Secretary of War. A a As regards the Extension,.i have to state that an arrangement has already Boon made fur obtaining on prospective deliveries one Hundred and Twenty one thousand seven Hundred and five swords and sabres and the unlimited order to the messes. I Wortsman a wins Given because of Short time to the deliveries of Sabre of their own manufacture. I do not think an Extension of the Ordor is Noces sary or advisable. A a a respectfully &c., Jas.

Now sir it was this Public statement of his upon his responsibility As an officer of the Guyvor unsent to which. I i Avo referred a distinguished senator and colleague of Mino Noble and Goneno a hearted who would do no Man any wrong and who believes that All men Tell the truth to urge after having moved tho unanimous confirmation of this Man Whoso name was then Befu pro tho Senate and to state in words As kind towards me his of Lacago in. Tho ii mss Asho was capable of using that to Hau tho authority of this Man Simon Cameron Tor stating that i mistaken when i said that these contracts had Boon Mado. Sir the distinguished Gobi Tucman Ironi Penns Lynma. To chairman of the committee of was and Means says a fans in Uno falsity in omnibus. I wish to quote those Quot two tilings together and let my from Pennsylvania answer them in tho Light of tho principle which to has Laid Down House contracts a Healing Salve the effect of an expensive feast upon congressional drains. A i submit Thop of a spending the Public Money is a reason Why this committee should to discharged comes with ill Grace from the Quarter from Phonco a to emos. Why sir who dues it know what All the papers stated that political feuds wore healed by oreo contracts and that the Henling of them was celebrated by a great feast ? i have Oneo alluded to it myself i am Able now to state More particularly the details of tho ii fair. It took four horse contracts Onieh for Ono thousand horses to Settle those old political feuds and Overy one of those contracts Cost the government $100,000�?$400,-000 in four horse contracts and lot me toll you miss Potkor that some of them Wero in menus a Sofiea who did not know of it until tho contracts wore made. It does not need to to told to gon Lomen who know s i much about tho Way things Aro done As to do hero in this Ili Iuse Why it is and for whose Benefit it is that Largo contrib cts Are piano in menus names without their about it. My distinguished Friend from i Onn Syl itt or. Stevons who in tho discharge of. V lib a or nested v1111111 u it. It a a a appeared to to a High duty protest against such a Man As Simon Oam Orun into tho Cabinet tho papers �?~1 Quot Toast with his Prosoco and that those to sons Wero Over this entertainment �?�1 the of Harmony among old political antagonists and Somo of them o to inv knew tho consideration. It seems to Mitu the $41 0,000 should to saved to tho dirt a Nuu two Consul Cratit a it. The simple Sale and repurchase of five thousand arms by the United states that tho committee on Couch tired tho opposition of the chairman of the committee of ways and moans. It first Manifest of itself in delaying the appropriation to the expenses of the committee and it then brought out As ponch in the House ridiculing to com Nitto Aud tho committees efforts to Rescue tho Treasury from the harpies that Hung around acid Hov i cd Over it. And last of All it culminated in an attack last monday on the integrity and character of tho committee Aud that torn after tho gentleman from Pennsylvania had been duly notified that every Mem her of to Coin Mittoo was absent and cuu lil nut reply Simon Cameron As Generalissimo be threatens to make a sortie upon the committee. A a sir i am not permitted to Overlook also the connection of others in this matter. Although i had not tire pro Vilge of being present during Trio forepart of this week i am informed that a distinguished cd functionary of tho government was hero in this House As tho Generalissimo on that occasion .1 Ani informed that subsequently to appeared at the scat of the distinguished Zombor from Pennsylvania or. Stevens and congratulated him signal Success of his achievement Oyer Trio committee in their absence and that to conferred with the Lieut Nunt in that attack or. Biolley and with my other distinguished Friend from Pennsylvania or. Moorhead who Foels courage enough Hud is sufficiency prompted by a a onto of dirty to vote for the Diso Hargo of the committee. Sir had hoped not to to compelled to allude to and Ono also in connection with tia matter. But Justice to the committee requires me to Call a Tomion these singular to incidences that is not All. Tho committee has had fair notice served upon it by this distinguish cd sex soc Elary that its members arc to hear from him also where. Why sir Trio accusation which the gentleman from Pennsylvania or. Kolley made on the committee a Low works ago was published As an advertisement in Trio newspaper in my District in Tiu vain attempt to Mako tho a Kopjo of my District Boli Evo that i was not an Hannot Man. Of course the gentleman from Pennsylvania did not that advertisement. Laughter of a Miro it could not be tho distinguished Secretary who had served notice on every member of the committee that to would he Laid ont in his own District at tho next election. I know not who paid for tho advert is Inonu nor do i Cave. Illegal contracts the cause of the heavy taxation opposition of tiie plunderers to tiie committee on contracts. Or. Spca kor i have a word or two to say opon Trio suggestion of the gentleman from Pennsylvania or. Stevens that to would move to discharge the committee if it Woro Only in order. Quot the gentle Many a duties in this Ijo Uso and the duties of tho committee Havo been of a Diffor ont description. I Havo no disposition to criticise this performance of his. I know the ability with which he discharges Thorn. I know vory Well what i encounter in attempting to Peply to is attack upon tho committee. I have Only to say that his labors and tho labors of too no Yot to to appreciated. Whon tho thumb screws of tho tax Bill which to on Mitten of which to is Bond originated and passed through the Iio Uso from the Neces it of Trio times so nicely adjusted so Saulic to Roach tho Bones of tho poor in dust Quot note my est in of tho country and while the gentleman from Pennsylvania in Pellet by Trio necessities of the government Lias inc l racking his ingenuity to contrive How to reach the last Farthing that can he reached to replenish the Treasury Quot this committee which has been placing their feeble efforts Between the plunderers and Trio trea surya Are willing to abide that time.
