XXVILIth Congress—First Session
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
WABITINGTOIS, May 6.
Mr. Voorhees (Indiana) obtained the unani
mous consent of the House to make a state
ment, saying that two gentlemen of his State
had been cruelly wronged, and expressing
a hope that the facts would afford a lesson of
decency and justice for the future.
, The gentleman from Ohio, (Mr. Garfield,) on
a former occasion, made a startling statement,
and had chosen his , Mr. Voorhees') district
for an assault on two of his personal and po
litical friends, who are thus made the victims
of party malice. At the time the gentleman
from Ohio brought forward what he claimed
to be traced copies of letters from Judge
Eckles and John G. Davis, addressed to Gen
eral Breckinridge, recommending a young
man named Rankin for a position in the rebel
army, he (Mr. Voorhees) denounced them
to be forgeries. The gentleman had said lie
Would produce the letters, but he did not, and
he (Mr. Voorhees) called upon him to do so
• now. The, copies even did not meet the bold
and defiant promise of the gentleman, who
should either make good the charge or re
tract it. The character of Judge Eckles and
Mr. Davis would not suffer at the gentleman's
hands, or the Democratic party be imperiled
by his blows. He claimed as a high honor
that Eckles and Davis are his friends.
Mr. Davis formerly represented the Terre
Saute„ district, and was no stranger here.
All who served with him would testimony
to his integrity and patriotic befaing.
Mr. Voorhees then proceeded to prove by
letters from Messrs. Eckles S and Davis, and by
the assertions others whose characters
were unimpeachable, that these letters were
base impudent, and deliberate forgeries; also,
milinowledge-d to larch the spy;
who: forgot - them: and- from.' whom the
gentleman ebtained the, copies. This was -a
conspiracy' to ruin the •charadter and perhaps
the lives of two private citizens. If ifwere
not for the serious character of the transac
tion, he would pronounce it,as a stupendous
jest of this jesting Administration !- In con
elttsion, he Said he had proven b4end the
possibility of a doubt that Rankin forged the
lettersi,and has left.witnesses of the Rirgery,
which was without a parallel in atrocity.
Judge Eckles had no hope for the restora
tion of liberty or peace while the Republican
party remains in power, and in this oplition
lie was the gentleman's true representative.
Mr.,Garfield said he had not heard that
Judge. Eckles had denied the guarantees of
the letter attributediSs him until thiS morn
irtg. In presenting the copies,. he did not
pretend .to use such evidence as was adrnis
[ sible in .a court of justice. -
The letter tit 5 put into tlit hands of, the
chief of police in Nashville, and the person so
certified, under oath as to their genuineness.
They were.presented to the 'General-in-Chief
Mr. Garfield said Indiana officers were con
sulted upon the suliAct and they came to the
conclasientriost unanimously, that the. letters
were genuine. He had submitted accurately
traced copies which were read to the House.
The answer made by the gentlemen (Mr.
Voorhess, was a printed paper, published in
Indiana, and this was called the evidence
on which the House were to believe the let
ters were forged in that State. Why did not
the gentleman produce the original letter'
from Mr. Hays? -
Mr. Voorhees replied that the paper was ac
companied by a letter from that gentleman ;
who said he had the statement of Hyde, show
ing that Within his personal knowledge that
the letters oflrdy, 1863, ,were, written in In
Mr. Cox made a lengthy speech and said:
"My heart's desire and prayer to Godis 'for
peace tint union, to this distracted land
While urging undiminished and increased ex
ertions by our army and navy to secure union,
I have been ever ready to heal the' - wounds
and check theravages of war by all ratiosal
methods used among civilized nations.
To those who can entertain but one idea at
a time this position has seemed inconsistent,
but to those who have read history it will ap
pear that to cheek strife and restore harmony
in civil or international conflict, negotiation
and friendliness are indispensable. .. , •
He had mournfully though constantly, by
vote and voice uphelel.the sword lest even a
worse alternative—eternal separation :Mad
prolonged strife should be our fate. The
miseries which this war has entailed htt4e not

There is one chief defect in the President's
plan: It is the structtire built upon the - I 3 ooc-
Imitation of emancipation; -The same defect
is , observable in - the bill of the gentleman

'based on the one-tenth system and the policy
