CoThnnaional Cams .ori/On. George ;
In the memorable, debates', towards the
close .of the session oil, 18131,11 W, Pendlen
tomsecooded withal' his might the effort
of Mr. Crittenden. to secure the.adoption
of his amendrhento to the Constitution
which would have averted, the. war and
contintu3drourpeace and prosperity.,
At. the extra sessiop 186.1 7 wbee

increasing the regular army, and authorr.
izing the President. to !call -out unlimited
numbers of . volunteere,, /gr. !Pendleton

'fr./desire, sir, to vote for, all measures
asked. for to enable the government to
maintain: its . dignity-And • honor, which
may, be sanctioned •by the Constitution,
and by any reasonable view oft:the neces
sity of the case. I will heartily, sealously,
gladly 'support any honest effort 'to main-,
tam the Union, and reinvigorate , the ties
which bind these States ,together.. But,
sir, I am mot willing to vote for more men
or money than tba,administratiou asks;
more than it. can fairly ,use; mere than
General Seett, who advises and controls
the administration, tells us, he thinks ,ne
cessary. Neither. will I vote for an in
crease of the regular army ; for this up
rising of the people of the North shows
that, our breve and noble volunteers are
ready and able to do the work now to be
done better than regulars can. And
only necessity of incretisinTthe regular
army now, is to give patronage and power
to the 'administration, in the appointment
of of era.
Neither, sir, will I vote for bills of in
demnity to the President ; for bills which
are not intended to relieve the country
from its difficulties, but to cover the acts
and doings of the administration from fair
investigation and honest judgment. Nor
will I vote for the suspension .of those
laws for the protection of personal liber
ty, which the Presideattells us were pass
ed in too great tenderness of the rights
of citizens. Nor will I close my lips, lest
I may speak of usurpations, or corrup
tions and abuses, whichlare said to be rife
'hi this city now4and thegovernmeut may
be thereby weakened. Sir, let the gov
ernment. depend Nulls strength upon the
:integrity of its motives and its adherence
to the Constitution. 1 will vote fer•none
of these measures ; but I _will do what is
fairly necessary, to give, the administra
tion power to maintain the government,
and prevent disaster to its flag."
Mr.Peadleton always manifested a deep
interest in the welfare of the volunteers
of his own State particularly, and of the
whole army generally. At the extrases
sloe. be .offered this' resolution, which was
adopted, placing officers of volunteers es,
the same footing as to pay with officere• of
Resolved, That the Committee on mai
' tary affairs be instructed to inquire into
the expediency of providing by late that
officers of volunteers shall be entitled to
receive their pay according to the same
rides and times of payment as officers in
the regular service.
On the 18th of July he introduced a
bill for the relief of volunteers of Ohio,
which gave rise to much discussion, and
which he ably carried through.
On the 31st of July, 1881, he offered
Resolved; That Congress does hereby
solemnly declare, that, hostilities Against
the so-called Confederate States shall be
so prosecuted as to enforce obedience to
the obligations of the Constitution, and
the laws passed in accordance therewith.

The representativeir of the Democratic

the usual time; and afterwards, in con
junction with conservative men of other
parties, had again postponed. the cord

delegates frotn the distant states, like Or

the election. Under such circumstances

all the obstacles to success that have been
or may be interposed at Washington.—
But the dischaage of those sacred duties
will not interiors with the careful and in

war but able to make peace.
There are two men who obviously can
