Edwin XrX Stanton.
l.v our last Issue wo spoke Willi regret
of lliu mipolutmont of Mr. Stanton as
Asdoduto Justlco of llio Supremo Court
of the United Slates, llttlo thinking
that i Tower, higher than Unit of man,
hail already ordained that the Judicial
ehalrshould never ho nilcd or the judic
ial robes worn by him who has been
ealted by admiring friends the "Great
War Minister." Yet so It Is, ami to
day nil that is mortal or Eelwln M.
Stanton lies cold and dead In thu elty
where ho oneo ruled with n power as
uudloputcd and as arbitrary as any pet-
tv despotism of Europe could boast. It
Is not neOcssary to ttuoto the thread
hare adage "Nothing but good of the
dead ;" tho deeds of this dead man havo
been such as will not fado from tho
minds of men as his remains disappear
from view in tho grave open to receive
them. It is perhaps not tho time for
earnest criticism, in tho presence of tho
Qreat Destroyer, but tho character and
actions of bo remarkable a man are and
must bo open to tho discussion of all
men. Mr. Stanton in many respects
was one well fltted for tho important
position ho held durlog tho wnr, oner
cctlc, prompt, systematic, and fearless
of responsibility, yet theso great quail
ties wero i.wayed und biased by person
al rancor and party animosity, until
his energy degenerated into malice and
his firmness into brutality. It is unnec
essary at this tlmo to enter into any
lengthened account of Mr. Stanton's
indefensiblo public actions, his enmity
to MeClellan and Sherman, his utter
brutality in tho ease of Mrs. Surratt,
his want of lienor and self respect In
Ids removal from the War Office, but
who siiall number the outrages, com
mitted, under his sanction, at least,
unknown to the public; tho miseries of
arbitrary imprisonments, tho dismissals
from oflleo for paltry and unsustnlned
charges, tho Insults offered to those
whom necessity compelled to face him,
and tho horrors of Andorsonvlllo prison
pens? There are many thousands who
will well remember Mr. Stanton and
whoso eyes will not bo blinded as to his
character by his grandiose tltlo of the
"Great War Minister" and who will re
joice that tho vacant chair of tho Su
premo Court was not occupied by ono
who would havo brought to it no honor,
either as a Jurist or an impartial Judge.
To the great Judge of all men, how
over, Mr. Stanton has now to appear,
and, grcatman as he was, wo turn from
him without regret nud with no feeling
that tho nation has suffered a vital hm
Of ono thing thero is no doubt, Mr.
Stanton needs no epitaph.
The Columbia County Invasion.
Tin: most careless und unobservant
of newspaper readers can hardly fall to
havo noticed of lato tho frightful num
ber of murders which aro almost dally
chronicled. Scarcely a paper comes to
us but contains two or threo of these
ghastly results of human passion.
Many of them can of course bo traced
to the immodcrato uso of tho manufac
tured poison, miscalled whisky, others,
of equal brutality, to Jealousy and fami
ly difficulties. It would seem that the
fcacredncss of human life, Is rapidly be
ing lost sight of, aud that tho vengeance
of tho law is no longer terrible to theso
sheddrrs of blood.
Certainly u is a subject which, calls
for thcconftldcratlon of not only our law
makers but of all good citizens. It Is
difficult to say in what direction steps
should be taken to prevent this greatest
of crimes, but that the peace and pros
perity oflhe land rcqulro bouio prompt
and efficacious action in tho matter thero
Is no doubt.
Disastrous FmEs. Tho city of
riiiladelphia seems to ho especially
doomed to suffer from enormous fires.
Our readers may renumber tho tremen
dous loss of property which ensued from
this rmiEo last Winter, and now we
havo to ehronIclcthree,occurring within
a few liomB of each other and causing n
loss of fcome half a million of dollars.
The ilrbt broke out on Christmas night
at No. 14 North Fourth St., near Mar
ket,occupled byltccder&Thaeher.hard'
ware dealers. This building was com
pletely destroyed and the three build
ings adjolningoccuplcd by varlousflrms
badly damaged. Loss, $20,000.
Tho game night a largo warchouso
Nos. 110, 182 & 111 North IJroadSt.,was
destroyed. Loss, $80,000.
Tho following day the large sugar re-
finery of RodgersA Mitchell Urd iVlne
Sis., was dlstroyt d. hose, 220,000.
Tho cawo of either of theso fires is
notes yet known. Doubtless an in
vcstigatlori will bo made, and somo in
formation dieted.
Tin: Hadical Press, claim great credit
for tho Into Edwin M. Stanton, becauso
ho retired from public life, n poor man.
AVofnil toncknowledgo Die justlco of
this claim. Ia it poesiblo that credit is
duo to a public mon who lelircs from
oflleo without filling his packets with
public money? Have tho luotnls of
our high officials eunk to to low tin ebb,
that they aro to be congratulated and
praised for practicing common honesty
whilst filling their positions? wo can
seo no moro reason for praising a Qov'
ern m en t ofll ccr for refrai n 1 n g from pick
ing and stealing from tho public Treas
ury than wo can for not illehlug tho
pocket books of his friends In private
life. If honesty has becomo su raro a
thing as this In tho Ilepuhllcau party,
for tho eake of decency let tho fact be
kept hidden as much as may be.
DKAitSnt: I proceed ntoncoto nn-
swer the questions contained In your
letter of Oct. l!8thj and to your first in
quiry, whether under general pallia
mentary )aw,lndcpendcut of any special
rule, a member has not a right to cliango
his voto nt any tlmo beforo tho decision
is flnnlly announced by tho Chair, my
answer Is : That within tho limitation
contained In yotirquojtlon, lie lias. Tho
right to voto carries with It under par
liamentary law, uvery other right Inci
dent or necessary to its intelligent anil
Just exercise; and wliero not special ly re
stricted or limited iu the particular
mentioned in your question, by somo
ruloof tho body In which tho tight to
votois (ohcoxercised, there can belli my
opinion no question of tho absolute right
ofu member Th his discretion, for any
reason satisfactory to litinsolf,to cliangu
ills vote ul any time beforo tho decision
Is Dually announced ; until which, Ills
judgment utf to how ills voto shall bo
cast is his own, and is not concluded
against him until such announcement,
which then becomes tho judgment of
the body by which ho with tho rest is
to bo bound.

on Parliamentory law, at page 701 sec.

when that decision is announced is an
Integral part, that doubt has been el
fectuaily removed by the decision of the
House of Representatives in tho cuse
referred to In Harclay (p. 107 Ed. mo.)
Let mo givo a synopsis of that caso talen
from the Journal of tho House 2d buss.
20th Coug. p. 807, 308. It is as follows :
Thoprevloiis question having been
demanded, tho main question was put
and taken by yeas and nays. Alter tho
roll was called tho speaker announced
tho stat oj the vote ; hut beforo ho had
pronounced tho' 'decision of tho House,"
a member roso aud declared his wish to
ehango his vote. Tho speaker decided
that tho member had that right.aud ho
changed his vote. After tho speaker had
pronounced tho decision of tho House, a
question of order was raised, "whether
the speaker possessed tho power to per
mit a member of thellouso to ehango his
voto after the numbers of votes on each
sido of a question had been announced
from tho chair?"
Tho speaker decided "that it was the
right of a member to change his vote at
any stage of proceeding before the de
cision of tho House thereon should have
been finally and conclusively pronounced
from the chair."
An appeal was taken from this decision
and the Houso sustained tho speaker
by a vote of 122 to 49. This was on the
28th Feb.l829,nnd has not to my knowl
edge, been In any lmtunco since then
Your next inquiry: Is it not tho fixed
practlco of tho U.S. Senate to allow
members to ciinngo their votes at any
time btfore tho result is announced from
tho chair, I can witli very great confi
dence answer. It is tho fixed practice
of tho Scnato ; nor havo I over known,
during now a pretty long experience,
that right questioned, and It is ono of
almost daily assertion. IT any prlncl
pie of parliamentary law could bo es
tabllshed by tho unbroken usngo of the
Senate alone 11 would bo this very right
of n member to cliango his vole before
tho announcement of the decision from
tho chair. But your own experience as
a member of tho Scnato must have
made you familiar with very many Ire
stances In which this right has been ex
My connection wlththeSenatocovers
a period of very nearly thlrty-tiireo
years. Until within about four years,
when I was mado Its Chief Clerk, the
greater portion of that time it was my
dnty to assist In making up Its Journals;
and in twelve of that tlmo I had the
entire charge of tho Journals; during
which I was constantly In tho Senate
Chamber, and am thcrcforo familiar
witli its practice. Recurring to the prac
tico in tho Scnato In respect to tho right
ofu member to ehango his vote; no no
tico of these changes, unless a question
bo raised, Is taken on thojourmil, wliero
only tho result Is recorded. It is there
foro not a matter of record but of that
"personal experience" spokou of by
May In Ids Treatise on l'urllam. Law
where ho says: ".Modern practice Is
often undefined iu any written form ;
It is not recorded lu (ho Journals ; it is
not to be traced In tho published do
bates, nor Is It known Iu any certain
manner but by personal experience, and
by tho daily practlco of Parliament in
tho conduct of Its various descriptions

opposition to tho confirmation of

As Karns and others, testify, that
there was nothing done in the forenoon,
and as Itantz nppears to havo been ab

held responsible for nny proceedings
which took place. Independent of tho
fact that this meeting was held on his

against Mr. Bautz on his trial, except
that ho had made excited or cxtravtt'
gnntremnrkson several occasions,whicli
wero pretty well accounted for by Rich
nrd Stiles, (u witness examined against
him,) who said : "I consider Bantz a
man who talks considerable." His
looso talk however (supposing it to bo
correctly reported) was accompanied by
very distinct nc(s which gavoit an In

that "they could hunt up all the drafted

arrested and severely punished. Ho
was convicted (as wo havo heretofore
shown) after nn imperfect and unfair
trial beforo tho Military Commission at
Harrisburg, and underwent moro limn
eight mouths of dungeon life. But his

the evldenco that ho resides In tho Im

went to the meeting in tho afternoon,
but was thero only about 15 minutes
und then returned homo. Ho does not
seem to havo taken any part in the
mooting, or (o havo given any other
pretext for his arrest.
Joseph Coltmun, another victim,
aged 08, a surviving soldier of tho war
of 1812, was at Mr. Applcmau's homo
on tho 1 1 tli of August when Daniel
M'Henry arrived thero, accompanied
by his wife, child, and n niece, on Ids
way (o visit a relative. Mr. Coleman
spoko to M'Henry and referring (o tho
Ilnntz meeting asked him to go up to
It and lnduco tho peoplo "to go homo
to their buslnosi." In this request ho
was Joined by Mr. Absalom M'Henry
who was thero nt tho (line. Upon 1).
M'Henry's remarking that (hey them
selves should go up, they replied that
ho had better go; that ho was moro com
petent than they wero and could ac
complish more. Thereupon D. M'Hen
ry went up to tho meeting accompan
ied by Absalom M'Henry, IIo left his
peoplo at Applcman's and abandoned
tho visit ho had Intended to make.
Theso fuels aro fully set forth in tho tes

Military Commission on tho Kith day
It will, then, bo seen that Mr. Cole
man was Instrumental In scudlngu gen

nn nrrested man. Ho was seized and
thrust into Fort Mlfillu without auy

Daniel M' Henry's arrest is tho only
additional ono wo will mention, in
this particular connection, although
many others, outrageous in character,
might bo named. Tho testimony of
Absalom M'Henry, to which reference
has already been made, explains clear

Wo talked as wo went nlong that we
should advlso them to disperse and not
do anything contrary to law, and he
advised me to speak to them as I was
older. Wo walked up to tho Bantz
barn. Ho mado a speech; his speech was
short. Ho talked very much as wo had
spoken. Ho told them (hey had bettor
gohomcnud if the soldiers did como
und burn their houses they had the law
to fall back on and the neighbors would
not leave them suffer. I think I heard
the whole of his speech distinctly and
that was tho leading point. I was pretty
close to him. He did not advise the
men to stand together. If he had said
it I would have remembered it. There
was somo conversation between us and
ho wanted drafted men to payor report.
Edward M'Henry said the drafted mon
should stand together and he would be
with them.
Cross-hxamintd: Daniel M'Henry
did not say lie believed the peoplo were
unanimous Iu what they had underlain
en. Tho object of tho meeting at Bantz's
they met to consult what they should
do If the soldiers cliould come up; wheth
ertliey should stand out and defend
themselves if they should injuro them
Thero wns a good many drafted men
there. Ed. M'Henry wns at tiio further
end of tho barn nnel I could not-hoar all
ho tnid and I would havo rather ho
would not havo spoken. IIo advised
tho drafted men to stick together if the
soldiers came to curry out their plnn

to rebel against tho laws unless it was
in self-defence. Tho drafted men In

To the same purpose with tho forego
ing wns tho testimony of James Evans,
who was also present nt the Bantz meet
ing nnd was examined as a witness for
tho defence.
Tho government vitncs3 Silas Karns
stated M'Henry's remarks somewhat
differently, though substantially to tho
samo effect. Ho admitted that "Daniel
M'Henry did not adviso them to resist
tho soldiers, "aud that "ho advised them
not to go on but to hold on and teo what
was done in tho matter."
Such then aro tho facts In relation to
Daniel M'Henry's connection with the
Bantz mooting. Ho went to tho meet
ing upon request lo oppose all violent
nnd'lmprudent counsels, nnd to induce
thoso who wero thero to disperse quiet-ly-nnd
go home, and ho carried out his
intention faithfully and fully.
TitnSriiECHEs: Bemarks wero mado
in tho barn, as tho wKnesses inform us,
hySainuel Kline, Daniel M'Henry and
Edward M'Henry. They wero brief
but wore not all to tho samo purpose or
mado with tho same object. Aftersomo
observations by Kline, D. M'Henry
spoko In tho manner already described
nnd very properly and wisely. Then
Ed. M'Hciiryj mado somo excited re
marks. Ho tald (among other things)
as reported by (ho witness Karns, that
"ie teas not as the man thai had spoke
before him j that some men had prom.
Isod to protect them und when tho trial
came refused some men hud done so,"
Ho did not uamo who they wero. I
could not tell what lie did say; I heard
what I havo slated ; somo things said I
could not recollect to tell here. Home
men had backed out."
Tho meaning of all this is very evi
dent. 1). M'Henry's remarks in favor
of doing nothing In (ho way of resisting
tho soldiers, thot'they should wait and
eeo what was dononnd that even if pro
perty was burnod they "had the law to
fall back upon, wero very tinwelcomo
to Ed. M'Henry and lingered him.
