Nothing orig iually had been further frum his mind thin lo attempt any such thing ; hut he felt prnvnked to it by the remarks of others. Of what had boon slid of the treaty during its discussion, ho had

nothing to complain. The President and Inni. self had been engaged in a negotiation , which was a proper subject of comment while under consideration, but ho thought that the opposition to that treaty now was so extraordinary as to make it a subject of defence.
