TO the Editor fltlie tinier/I . . •
Having spoken to-day in the House under much
excitement, and, in the confusion which preiyirgid i
r eaming uo cor.ect ierfoi/ of lay remade' vvip . b e
f u rnished, I salt s in Justice to myself thaiyott piabia
this c ommunication.
After I had received '53 votes for Speaker, en
Monday last, and after the House had adjourned I
wa s sent for to go to the room of a member. When
arrived there, I learned that it was for the purpose
o f having a conference with Mr. Wilmot, of Penn
sylvania, who soon after came into the room. He
informed me that' they were satisfied with the po-i.
Linn of Mr. Potter, of Ohio, and had been . ready to
vote for him, if the time had arrived when their
votes would have made a choice ; that they were
willing to vote for me it I would agree to give them
fitir committees on the District of Columbia, the
j u diciary, and on Territories; that neither himself
c rii the gentleman from New York (Mr. Preston
bi ns ) desired to be upon these committees; that
all he and his friends ailed was,
that the ablest
men of the diflerent parties, and both sections of
the Union. might be selected; and they asked that
they should impartial and Imprdudiced upon the
question of slavery; that their fears *ere, that I
might so constitute these committees, as to stifle
what he regarded as the radic sen.iment of a-ma
unite of the country: I slated to him in reply, that
I, regarded his request as reasonable, and that, if
elected, I should constitute these committees affair
impartial men; that whatever might be my views
upon any and all questions, I would not use my
power as Speaker in such manner as to prevent any
important question from being rully presented and
discussed in the House. Mr. Wilmot appeared
satisfied and left me. in a short time I received
!Ecru him the following, note:
Dear Sir: In the conversation which I had with
you ibis evening. you were free to say, that if elect
ed Speaker of the House of Representatives, you
would constitute the committees on Territories, the
Judiciary, and the District of Columbia in a manner
that should be satisfactory to myself and the friends
with whom I have the honor to act: I have commu
nicated this to my friends ; and if, in reply to this
note. yoti can give them the same. assurance, they
will give you a cheerful and cordial support. '
Respectfully youri, b. wiLmor.
Hon, Wm J. Brown.
I knew the reason why I wn.4 interrogated. I
had always been regarded as entertaining feelings
more friendly to the South than a majority of the
represen'aliveli from the North. As a member of
the 2Sth Congress, I item aivocated the Texas bill,
and had voted agaitint,the application et the hints
oun Compromise to ihe Texas bill, and had voted'
against application of the ordinance to the Oregon
beeau-e it was north of that line. For hair
rearsl had been Assistant Postmaster General ; and
had nether voted at an election, nor been a mem:
her of co;ress.and had no opportunity of recording

On the 30th of November last, the . alike of the
fiscal year, there was in the treasury a large
amount of unpaid appropriations for the expenses
of canals and railroads for the part year, while the
creditors of the stair, and persons employed in re

more than than two hundred thousand dollars.--
There remained in the treasury ou the 30th No

treasury on that, day, of the appropriations made
for the Columbia railroad and Portage road, the
sum of $178,599, which is due to the creditors of
the commonwealth, and which should have been
drawn and disbursed long since—to wit : 8103,1195

The treasury, ever, since the payment of the in
