Fam slut United states to the Agency of an unseen irresponsible influence to be attributed the rupture be tween the president and vice president and to it is to be attributed the late extraordinary dissolution of the Cabinet. General Jackson so far from removing them on account of the manner in which they have discharged their official duties in his let to or. Ingham and gov. Branch nays accepting of your resignation it is with great pleasure that i Bear testimony to the integrity and Teal with which you have managed the fiscal concerns of the nation. In your discharge of All the duties of your office Over which i have any control i have been fully satisfied. Wherefore then were they dismissed was it because the Public interest required their removal or. Ingham is explicit on this Point he says in his letter lately pub _ k the official Intercourse of the Heads of departments with each other and with the president has never to my knowledge been interrupted for a moment nor jus any differ ence of opinion As to the measures of the Ifo Reimert divided the Cabinet in a single instance so far As i recollect according to the line of separation now so generally ascribed in the Public it is apparent that pub e considerations did not control this movement. What did gov Branch has that he went far As a Maii of Honor could go and in a late letter he con to be a candidate for expressly upon the ground that he dares believe that ims country will of Prore the course which he Felt it i. Auty to pursue we the Eit Tzena of Tut Ungto during a late rat Jence among them. Or. Ingham gov Branch were dismissed for political and Fri Tate causes. Neither have been avowed be neither would be approved by the peo pie. One of the causes was that they would not permit the executive will to regulate their private Intercourse with the citizens of Washingtont an attempt to do which although of ten threatened by an Combina Toon of major William b. Lewis i. An acting a Fth wms for Many months resisted by Gen.

For this we were pledged and in the honesty hearts we believed that the objections urged by his opponents would be As Beacon lights to guide his adminis trevion. Above All we confided in his own firmness and Independence m the strength of his own mind and in his reputed knowledge of men a belief con firmed by his Brilliant career for the fulfil ment of the pledges made in his behalf. It is known that the just of the country were disappointed in the organization of his Cabinet. Hut those who were nearest to his person and witnesses of its deleterious were More disappointed in the organization of the irresponsible malign influence which artfully obtained his Confidence and used his name and patronage to corrupt the pub lie and private morals and defeat the great object for which he was elected. That that influence does exist is corroborated by the positive assertion of gov. Branch and the unerring testimony of admitted facts the tendency and origin of which cannot be concealed or denied. That influence vet sur rounds the president. It is it controls the Cabinet. It has dismissed Able Ami faithful Public ministers it has corrupted a portion of the Public press and is resolved to rum that which it cannot corrupt it is on Pride Ami boast that it makes War upon the i de graph.
