Van Bow with firing the easting role White president for a Law authorizing ire to open the mails to search too Diery is still float ing to the newspapers notwithstanding its mation. We saw it yesterday in a speech of b. F. Hallett a Friend of or. Published in the Boston Post. This probably repeated it from or. Web speech and would doubtless if he celled to account for the slander himself behind or. Webster s no a Hority. Whennen like or.

Van Burn n Vole was to bring the Hill to a direct Vole fee Ami passage which it was Desira me should be Hud As soon As possible and which resulted in the decided rejection and of feet of the Bill. But u said by a morning Piper that Rte on the engrossment and third Rea j of a Bill is almost a Leal Rote. There truth in this than there is in or. Webster s assertion that or. Van Bow voted for the Law in question. In my Utah half the instances there Are senators voting for the engrossing and Reading of a Bill who do not finally Rote for its Pees go. A very bad measure Dis approved by n majority of the Senate of the Grace to be allowed to pass. Through Ell the stages of legislation to the Laet and is then rejected by a decisive this is often done by Way of giving fair play and due consideration to a measure anon which any considerable or Reepe Teble number of Tho Senate have set their hearts. The very intention of this Bill for authorising the postmasters to make inquisition into the contents of the mails shows How groundless and even silly is the pre thai the vote for a third Reading is a lest vote. Whan the Bill went to n third residing it seemed As if half the the Senate was in its question of its passage we taken it was rejected by Twonley Nve Volee to majority of six against he Bill. What nonsense is then to talk of role for a third rending is n Toet write by Way of Pallia Ting Tho Hood of calling Sueh a Vine a direct vote la fever of the provisions of the Bill. The menacing Lone in which or. Web ten Speaks of this Bill Are not a Little re he has no More severer con wife to pass upon it than to Call it a Law of doubtful expediency to say the in was detestable and inquisitorial Mee Enre end so the Senate seem to have thought who rejected it. Or. Webster admits Ile constitutionality. We Sli Uund like to hear in what. Part of Iho co Lulitu lion he discovered this Power in Tho government to interfere by Way of regulating the free interchange of opinion Between and Man. The manner in which or. Webster Speaks of this Bill convinces whet it would have required no very to tire of political interest to in info vote fur the Bill that or. Ultra.
