The Court Martial of Gen, Porter,
WesereeroN, Deo. 9
The court martial of Gen. Porter met at 11
o'clock to-day. Brig. Gen. B S. Roberta, late
Inspector General of the Army of the Potomac,
under General Pope, was sworn. His position
brought him often in contact with General
Pope, and made him familiar with his, General
Pope's, plane, operations and orders. Witness
was onilthe field during the entire engagement
of the 29th of August. In view of what the
army of Gen. Pope had accomplished, Pope
said when the battle of this:day closed he had
doubtOill thatie'Gen. Potter ;bed -made
an attack as directed by the order 0f'4:30
of the 29th, it would have resulted in the deJ.
feat or theloapture_ of the_ min ,army of the'
Confederates, who were on the field at:
that time. The, witness expected an attack'
to be made by Gen.'Porter; as dill Gen.'Pope ;
prior to the receipt of thwacked 4:30 P. H.,
as he supposed any general within hearing of
an important battle, as Glen. Porter was sup
posed to be", being on the Ihni of hooch from
Manasses, which would have brought him to
the right of the,erremjds liziethefore 4 o'elock,
in Whose pow er it was to engake in it, would
have done so. Gen. Porter was, in the opinion of
the witness,betwleo the bout iof 4 and 6 o'clock,
in a position where he could have attacked the
right of the enemy, and as be also believed
that I could have -turned the enemy's right
flank and attacked their rear, What he knew of
their position, and from what he knew of the
country, prior to what he considered General
Porter's disobediende of the order of the 27th,
he had been convinced that General Porter
would not only do his duty, but he •was led to
believe that he Would-do it as well as any offi
cer lathe army could. Question.—Then the
grounds of the witnesses' unfavorable impression
was fonnded merely upon the events with
which Gen. Porter was connected on the 27th
and 28th of August f _
Answer,- 7 They were not ; the only grounds
in a conversation which. I. had with Maj. Gen.
Kearney in which I mentioned Gen. Porter. and
the high estimation in which I held him ; that
officer told me that I did not know him, (Gen.
Porter) and addedthat he (Gen. Porter) would
fail Pope; the disobededience of ibis order,
and this conversation, led me to believe that
General Pope was not doing his duty ; sev
eral officers of General Pope'e staff were about
during this conversatiort_among them, I think
were Colonels Ruggles, Morgan, Welsh, and
Capt.. Pone; i,dp,not.think . this .conventation
was heard by any of those present, nor- de
:think, Gen. Icearney.intovied it should be.: He
iwas an.Qldlfrienti, 1 4. .4/140 Neat whom'. had

Mr. Wilson, (Mass.), said that, doubtless
everybody regretted the necesBity of making
these arrests in this country. The President
regretted it as much as anybody. He did not
think any loyal man would charge the President
with wantonly violating the rights of any citi
zen. Fora long time the leading traitors had
sat here, but no arrests were made, but when
the war commenced it was necessary, and the
first arrest was for selling gun caps to the enemy.
He, for one, thanked the President for making
these arrests, as it was a part of the
means of . preserving the government, and
he hoped the President and his advisors
would not shrink from arresting any man who
shows probable cause of being in league with
the rebels. There was never a rebellion where
so much consideration an I. tenderness had been
shown, and so much humanity for wicked
Mr. Sainsarritt, (Del.,) did not doubt but
that there were arrests made which were
justifiable, but. these . men ;were citizens of
Delaware, whose loyalty has, never been
questioned, and they were arrested by
persons from Maryland. All they asked
Was by - what authority these men from
Maryland dragged peaceful citizens from the
bevel State of Delaware. The motion to lay on
the table was disagreed to—yeas 8 ; nays 40.
Mr. nun; (N. J.,) said he would vote against
the resolution. He was of the opinion th at the
Prosideut had the right to suspend the.wilt of
habeas corpus. The framers of the Constitution
evidently provided that the habeas corpus
might be suspended in times of insurrection and
invasion, and he thought it was clearly an ex
ecutive act. He was of the opinion that if any
complaint was to be made the government had
been too lenient to traitors. He knew nothing
about these citizens of Delaware, and was glad
if there was none but loyal men in that State.
Mr. BAYARD, (Del.,) contended at some
length that the power to suspend the writ of
habeas corpus is not an executive act, if this
was admitted, and the legislatiVe power had
no right to enquire, then the President might
imprison men, or torture them, or do as he
pleased with them.
Mr. Sunman, (Ohio,) was in favor of adopt
ing all these resolutions of inquiry which were
offered in good faitn. He believed that this
right to suspend the writ of habeas corpus was
purely a Legislative power, and eould only be
done by Congress, but since the Legislation of
hen Congress, the 'President has the power
given him. He thought that many of these
arrests were greet mistakes, and every arrest
ought to De reportea to Congre s, and
the reasons for it giiren, and if this power
is to be unlimited the Government will
become oppressive.. Cougrerass could throw
around this suspension of the writ all
the grounds and checks necessary to
preserve the rights dreitirens, and the &arse

charges should be, properly explained and set
forth that they may be known, and Congress

Mr. TRIMBULL, (Ill.,) said that as he could
pot see any practical benefit to be attained by
passing these resoibtions, he was inclined to
vote against themz He had thought that these
meets bad been. unfortunate and impolitic..
Judges of courts and commentators have held
that the poiser of suspending the writ of habeas
corpus was a legislative power. It is not from
any feeling on this subject in sympathy with
the traitors, but because it is feared that this is
an exercise of an unnecessary and arbitrary
poWer, and he would say to his friend from
Massachusetts, (Mr. Wilson,) who glories in
these arrests, that there is very great danger- in
them. There is a bill now here from the
House relative to this very subject, and he was
in favor of acting upon that as a practical mea
Mr.,Powerm, (Ky.), contended that the Pres
ident and his ministers had no right to make
these arrest or to suspend the writ of habeas
porpus, and that in doing so they were guilty
of an usurpation.
Mr. FIMPSDII)I, (Maine.) I would like to ask
the Senator if he was at the head of the gov
brnment, and was satisfied in his own mind that
sn individual, in a time like this, was about to
e.enmit a crime, the consequence of which
would be exceedingly imperious to the govern-
Ment and would strengthen the arms of the
rebellion, and there was no other way to pre
vent it, would he not arrest that individual
without law and hold him by the strong hand.
Mr. l'own.t.., If the individual werp acting
es a spy or was infracting the laws of war, I
yfronid have him arrested and punished by those
laws but if he, was a private citizen, and had.
infri;cted the laws, I would arrest him and
hand him over to the civil authorities. And if
there was no law for the offence, I, as an
honest min, would have to let him go, for I
should have sworn faithfully to execute the
Mr. Forum= repeated the question.
Mr. Portal. If I was President, which is
niit a supposable case, I would do nothing to
violate the Constitution and lews of my coun
try. If I thought the party was about to do
anything wrong, I would have him placed wi
der bonds for gOod behaviour, and if there
was no law, I wonld have a watch placed upon
him to prevent his doing harm ; and at the
end of the next session of Congress, I would
try to have such a law passed.
Mr. FESS:UDEN, the Senator forgets one clause

Mr. PowiLL, that is not a supposable case.

provides that the writ of habeas corpus way .
be suspended does ,it, not necessarily imply that
a Mina may be arrested unlawfully.

provides that the Judge shall inquire into the
causes of the arrest. But does the suspension
of this writ ever authorize the President to

Mr. Cortensa. The only question the c

tution/ it implies that's Man may be impris
oned wilfully. •
Mr. POWELL replied, and contended that the
people had decided that these arrests should
cease, the recent elections showed this.
• Mr. WireoN, (Mass..) claimed that no such
question was Settled by the elections; the only
thing settled was that the Republican party
could not raise men enough to send to the field
to whip the southern traitors, and still have
men enough at home to vote down the northern
Democrats, that was all that was settled. In
lowa,the regiments voted at the recent election,
and fourteen thousand voted for the Adminis
tration, and four thousand against it There
was about the same proportion in the Wisconsin
regiments. He thought four-titthsbf the men
who are fighting the battles of the country
would vote to support the President.
Mr. NESMITH, (Oregon,) said he should vote
for the resolution, but still thought there were
cases where these arrests ought to have been
made He would do anything and every thing
to put down traitors everywhere.
Pending the question, the Senate adjourned.
Mr. Baows, (Va.,) resumed his remarks in
advocacy of the bill for the admission of the
State of Western Virginia info the Union. •He
stated the various considerations why the State
should be admitted, as a matter of expediency.
The people of that section had been struggling
forty years for a separate existence. He rt.-
counted the wrongs they have suffered from
the eastern part of the state, and said they had
now sixteen regiments in the field, and these
Were obtained by volunteering and not by
drafting. Were they to be turned over to the
old commonwealth and oppressed and perse
cuted. He had received a telegraphic dispatch
from Wheeling coutaining the substance of the
legislature asking for the passage of a pending
bill, precisely as it came nom the Senate. He
most earnestly appealed to the House to give
them the relief they ask.
Mr. COLFAX, (Ind.,) remarked that last ses
sion he had great doubts as to the propriety of
the passage of this bill. But on axamination
his mind was now made up that it ought to
pass he State Legistdure, it being lawful. He
alluded to the patriotism of Virginia in refu-ing
to be thrown into this wicked rebellion. The
President and the Heads of Departments,
together with both branches of Congress, hid
repeatedly recognized the State Legislature,
without protest from any coarter. He ex
pressed his gratification that the State coned
tution provides for emancipation, and conies
knocking at the doors with the Siara of free
dom on her brows
YEARI AN, (Ky.,) alter briefly alluding to
arguments which bad been advance, asked
that as Virginia was now represeuted in Con
gress and therefore in the Union, what need
was there for another act to let. Ver. in main.
Mr. COLFAX replied that the bill proposed to
admit, not an old btate, but West Virginia,
embracing the compact portion oT the State,
leaving the loyal citizens iu Accomac and other
counties without the limits of the proposed
Mr. OLIN, (N. Y.,) add be would vote for the
bill with reluctance, but as a re cessity the new,
State being the result of revo.ution, and gov
erned by the higher law of eetf-preaervation
and protection and fidelity to the , Union.
Mr. Bureaus ' (Ohio;) said he would vote for,
tbe bill, for byOonstitutb,nal provision Wes
tern Virginia would become a free State. '
Mi. CHITIVNDEN, (Ky.,) appreciated the pa:A
triotisw and valor of the peaple.of western
Virginia, and the desire which they express to,
become a free people ; out in this matter he,
was not governed by feeling but the principlee'
of constitution law. Congress could not'
admit a new statP out of the ancient territory,
without the assent of the oid Couranonwealtht
and this had not been given. If states could
be made in the method -proposed, new &ire.'
could be made at pleasure, irresp,c;ive of 'the
Constitution of the United States.
Mr. EDWARD explained his views for sup
porting the hill. He believed it would have a
tendency to break the power of the rebellion in
Virginia, and besides there was no legal legisl
lotion of government in Virginia at the time •
the people of Western Virginia took measures,
to term a separate organization, he would Sus
tain the loyal people, and if there was nn other
way, he would seize the rebellious portions
and hold them as territory and repopulate
Mr. VirTCSTMER. I asked you to speak
about repopulating Virginia, what would you
do with the people ? would you exterminate,
kill or make slaves of them ?
Mr. EDWARDS said, if necessary, I would
exterminate that whole people in order to pre
serve the integrity of the Union. I should go
for that.
Mr. WYckhirts asked, women and children?
Mr. EDWARDS, no, they are not found in
arms. (Laughter,) (this unintentional pun
gave rise to general merriment.) They are
entitled to the defence of every civilized people
of the world.
Mr. lliimmasn, (Tenn ,) spoke of his finding
patriotic loyal people in Western Virgnia—
bagging to be disenthralled and be relieved
from the dead carcass of Eastern Virginia. It
would be unjust to keep them waiting until
onr arms should compel other portions of the
State to obedience. , ;
Mr. SWIMS, (Pa.,) said it was mockery to
hold that the Legislature of Virginia had ever
assented to a new State. According to his prin
ciples he could vote for the bill on the ground
the revolutionary States being a belligerent,
they were not entitled to privileges of the
Constitution. With his consent the Union can
never be restored as it Was under the Constitu
tion, as it was with slavery. Without con
cluding the question, the House adjourned.
