Why. do I' say so I Why, air, I, with

with tho law of tho land, in compliance

to witness tho most magniGuiont farce that
I ever saw exhibited at tho other end of

and,with all respect for the honorable Sen

land which pot many years ago thought it
pious to burn old women for witches, and
which now thinks it equally pious to
whitewash a negro and mako him equal to

to the gallant Stato .represented by my
friend from New Jersoy, and then there
was musio in tho sound. That voto gave
out tho truo utterances of the voters of that
Slate. Then caino the vote of the small
est Stato now in tho Union in reputation ;
and let mo.corrcot history for ono moment.
It lias been said that Virginia is the
mother of States ; but, sir, I say then
came tho voice of tho mother of Stats, the
littlo Stato which I and my colcague rep
resent on fbis floor,the Stato which was the
first lo adopt the Constitution, and which
by the action of her sons, has showed her
?elf moro faithful than any other bo fur
heard f(om to tho compact of tho fathers,
by being the first promptly to reject the
unconstitutional proposed constitutional
.ameoment. Then, I say, came the voice

as long as you : but I hardly think these
murders arc committed with your knowl
edge ; and would suggest th3t you give
notice to tho people at largo that every
life taken by them limply remits in the
doath of ono of your Confederates.
Of oouree you cannot question my right
to forago on tho country. It is a war
right as old as history. The mann;r ol
exeroising it varies with circumstances, and
if tho civil authorities will supply my rcq
ui.i ions, I will forbid all foraging. Put I
find no civil authorities who can respond
to calls for forage or proyMons and there
fore must colleo: dirccly oftho people. I
have no doubt this is tho oecas'on of much
misbehavior on tho part or our men ; but
I oannot permit any enoray to judge or
punish with wbolcsalo murder.
Personally I rcgrot tho bitter feelings
engendered by this war : but thoy wero
to be expected, and I eimploy allege that
thoso who struck tho first blow and made
war Inovitablo ought not in a fairness to
rcproaoh us for the natural consequences.
I merely assort our war right to forago,
and my resolvo to pntect my foragors to
the extent of life for life, I am, with ro
spect, your obedient servant,
