But? The appearance of a communication from tbe Secreta'y of State to the President, under the date of January 19, 1866, and submitted by the Pre sident te Congress on the same day, drawing upon me tbe Imputation of having improperly abstracted from the hies of the State Department an important docom?nt, in the suppression of which I am sup posed to be Interested, calls upon me to make a full statement of all I kno? concerning the exlstenoe, the history and the nature of that letter. Tte Secretary of State argues to establish a con clusion whicb he strangely omits to state. His ar gument is t^at I hare had aocess to the papers in the State Department, and that no others likely to abstract tbe letter hare had such accsss. Tne Se cretary's logic points to the inevitable conclusion, but lacks the boldness to embody it in a spocltio cba' ge. Deeply as I must regret the necessity for meeting an sccusaMon which mnst inevitably iuvolve t>a painful extent tbe conduct and motives either of the accusea or the accusers, i am not at liberty to waive the issue. Contain plat ng the official hetg it froth whioi ttiih severe accusation has b -en can at me, I msy oot indulge in psssiouate invect ve, bat assured tiat before the judgment of reason, all men are equal, I am constrained to submit at that bar my evidences and my conclusions with the deeenoy and gravity that becomes the assertion of what is due to self respect. Although I do not Intend that my defence shall ' rest upon assertion but upon proofs, yet it is naturally expected and proper tbat 1 siould state tae facts ot tie esse. The first copy tbat 1 saw of the letter of the '26th February was at the American Ligation at tbe Hague, where I obtained a copy during last summer. 1 never saw a .opy of this letter at the i btate Department but on one occasion and then in the hands ot a person attached to the department. 1 did not take that copy from the department -I know not by whom, it by any one, tbe letter was tsken from the department, nor can I give any ac count of its absence. I purpose to establish the following conclusions:? lit. 'ibat Secretary Marcy at the time of writing tbe letter teferred to, did not seriously believe tnat I had abstracted tbe missing paper. 2d. The manner in whloh it was laid before Con gress was irregular, unnecessary, and calculated to do ire the greatest amount of Injury whicti could be accomplished under the circumstances of the case. 3d. That until the absence of the letter was dis covered It waa considered of no importance by tbe government, while tbe mode in wbich it la com municated Is calculated to enhance its importance te the highest attainable point. To establish the assertion (bat the imputation al luded to, is fairly conveyed by the Secretary's let ter, I make no argument? I produoe the letter itself : ? To tub Pawn err or Tint C.trriro Statu :? Alter tbe publication of the correspondence between tbe Becrrtsiy o( btate and the Minister of tbe I'nltsd State* to tne Netberlaods, In the case of Walter M. Gib eon, called for by a resolution of tbe llouss of Represen tatives ot tbe 27 tb July last. It waa discovered that an Important paper, embracod lo that resolution, bad not been transmitted. Tbe paper referred to wan tbe al leged copy of a letter from Walter M. Gibson to tbe Governor of Netherlands India, datuj 2oth February, 1862. I deem it proper to lend to yon one wbich I believe ti be a duplicate ot tbat which wax received at tbe depart ment I r?>m our Milliliter at the Hague, with an explana tion of the reaaona why it (li i not accompany my report to you of tbe loth ultimo. It la tbe common practice in lUe department to slli w tbo?e having claim* sga-ast foreign gov ernment!, for loanex of property or personal in juries, under ita management, to hare ncces* to the paper* on file, in relation to their rrspectivs cases. The , ordinary course wa* pursued in regard to Mr. Gibson, i Imring tbe jiendency of tbe negotiations ufhMcaae. down | to the time etpie* were made lor Congre-n, be frequently { a pp. ied tor permission to examine the document* ee Lit i ng to i\ and It wa* alway* granted to him. Mr. Hel mont'a despatch of tbe bib March, and the papers which accompanied it were in hi- possession, out of the depart : ment tor some time. lie returned, a* wa* supposed, all ? that bad been entrusted to him It is not kno en or be ! lieved that any ot the paper* in Mr. Gib*ou'a case have been in the hand*, or uuder the inspection of any person but Mr. Gibson, and those employed in tbe department, i Or e of the documents which accompanied that despatch was Mr. Van Hall's note ol Februarys lh&l, lu wlnc'i be atatra that a copy of Mr. t>it>*on'a letter to the Co rel nor of Netherlands India, (tbe mis*ing letter,) wa* attached, sad there is no doubt it accompanied the copy I of that nete sent to this department l>y Mr. Uelmont. Alter the papers were returned, Mr Belmont's despatch ws* not found among them, hut as Mr. Gibson was in En | ruj.o, and could not becal'e I on to a ? mini fur it, applica tion we- made to Mr. Belmont for a duplicate, which wa* obtnined Irombim. Kind ng the copy of the letter of Mr. Gibson to the Dutch t.overnor had been omitted in the document* pub lished by tbe Uou?e of Representatives, all the papers in Mr. Glb.-on's cane bsve been carefully examined, but tills letter ia not found on tho file of the uepartment. It is ( quite ee> tain thst it had become detached from the other papers belore the copies wi re made lor the purpose of nn-wering that call. Mr. Gibson has been questioned in | relation to thl* paper, suit *?at*a that It wa* not among tbe correspondence placed iu bis bands for examinstion, and cannot account for ita disappearance, but expresses a confident opin.on tbat be returned to tbe department all tbe papers he took from it. i That tl wa* among tbe papers received from Mr. Bel i mont is certain, for it is dUtinetly recollected by several ' persons belonging to tbe department. It wa* regarded as sn important paper, and much relied on by tbe gov ernmeut of Holland in resisting Mr. i.ibton's claim for i indemnity. The substance of it, as will be seen upon ex amination, ia contained in tbe note of Mr. Van Hall to ' Mr. Belmont of Feb. 26, 1854, in tbe printed correspond [ race. It ia also remarked on In Mr. Van Hsll's note to I Mr. Belmont of 2Mb June, and ia our Minister's reply to that note of 4tb July. I have received a communication from Mr. Gereri, tbe Minister cf the King ol Holland to thh government, ac companied by a copy of tbe letter, which the Ilutcb go veru.sut allege* was written by Mr. Gibson to the Gov ernor of tbe Netherlands India. I read carefully, more tban once, a eopy of that letter, which wa* transmitted by Mr. Brlmout, and do not donbt tbat the one which accompanies Mr. Gever's note to ma la a duplicate of ' tbat which waa on file st the department, but cannot now be found. Tbe eopy furnished by the Minister of the King ol the Netherlands and hl? note to me in rels I tion to it scrompany this conmunicstion. All which ia I respectfully submitted. W. I.. M ARC If. 1 submit the following circumntanes and concle sirns to establisi the assertion I now make, that tbe imputation s fleeting my coniuet la false and groundless. 1st. It does not follow that because the letter la missing tbat it has beea improperly abstracted. Tbe most favorable view presented by the Secrete | ry's letter of tbe a ate or affairs in the department renders It not improbable tbat the latter may have been mislaid or loa?. 2d. Though it Is true I had aocess to tbe papers ' in question, I had no motive for desiring tne de struction ot tbe letter la question. Without discov ering tbe existence of each a motive itis Impossible to draw an onfavo -able inference from tbe fact of ! bavtr g aodrewc d the Governor-General of Nether laada India in behalf of my liberation. I stated such fact to tbe Secretary cf State in my Drat ctm | inculcation on reaching this country after my escape from tbe prison of Weltevreden. That communica ? tion contains tbe following language:? "1 ksd made | tut a leegtby statement addressed to tbe G?vern ! or General, in which I detailed the circumataaoea aid occurrences of my late cruise up to the time of my arrest. In th ? ccmmamca'ion I expreaaed j mary legreta for much improdence of language on my part, wbi:e in Sumat. a, but denying the diing or aoreing of any hostile act against tbe gorern merit of Netherlands India. This personal appeal to the Govei noc-Get-eral's justice and mtgoanimity I waa simply herded over to tbe Attorney- General as evidence against me, bat waa rejected as such by i the coort ol justice at Bstavia.- [ H .

It U not tiue that beeides myaelf and person* attached to the department no ot'iera bad access to the pape? in qnesti?n. I myself kaoir of sm ml otbeia that htve had such access. Before I became air are u>at the letter eras missed from the flies, and on tbe 9th instant, the day before Mr. Gevera' letter to Secretary Marcy waa dated, I saw a copy of the letter in question in tbe h*nds of a gentleman in th? city, for the purpose of being transmitted for pnbUcattou in ooe of tbe Ne w Yorn papers; aid on tbe 16th lostant, four days b afore the message wai sett to Con?re*i, it was act tally published in the New York 7W?. Tois fact was known to Hecretary Marcy before he penned the accusation or my having purloined the letter. It tu the knowledge of tbis t?jt that flnt led the tiecre taiy to inquire for tbe loet latter. I will not oer tainly be charged with any participation in the act of obtaining and giving publicity t> tbis letter; at all events by those who believe th*t 1 was moat interested in suppressing it. It the a follow t that, a? a copy of the letter wax obtained by tbone nowise contcerned iu my interests, tbe fair inference is I that it wait obtained from the fllee of the depart ? merit. This in'erence is rendered the more probe | ble from tbe fact that it i? not an uansual o cur- ! . rence for copies of papers on the files of t'.e deoert- J ; ment tj be obtained by persons connected with tbe prees for publication I am unable to gire any explanation of the cir cum* lancet, and acting upon a priuolple widely dif- | ! ferent from tbat whljb prompted tbe Secretary's letter or ti e l'Jth inst., I shall forbear to intimate i what I have not the mtans to prove or the reason to believe. It is proper to stats, however, that It is possible that the lost letter may have been taken from toe files for the purjfoi-e of bting copied for publication, and tbat the excitement occasioned by the discovery of Ita less mav bave prevented the person in wnose | pot-eeesion it was from returoiog it to the tiles, and by tbat means subjecting himself to oensure, if not j i 1 1 lnllimi I Whatever conclusion may be for me i as to the real i cause ot the disappearance of the letter, it is certain ' tbat tbe circumntancts furnish no reaeou for the He cretarj's bel eving tbat I was in anywise connected | | with its absence. But if be entertained suod a belief, it must bave resulted from a predisposition to judge i me with severity, and on the slightest evidence. Thus it is seen, with tothing alleged against me | to my discredit, with no other ract than tha', I bad i tne means of purloining the letter had I the dispo sition so to do, tbe Secretary of ritate of a great na ; tlon professing to hold the honor of Its citizens , in the Highest respect, baa venturted to spread before tbe world a charge aflec'Jng my integri ty. He baa said in effect that be suspects I me of a highly dishonorable aot, aud ban given tbe i widest publi ity to this statement. The expression I of even a suspicion in so high a quarter u calcu lated to do tbe highest Injury. For it is not goae rally believed possible tbat a perton occupying the position of Secretary Marcy, of bia ability aai usual sobiiety of character, would yield himself up to the guioaiice of bis paseions, ana inflict a blow on tbe character of a citizen whose greatest mis fortune is tbat be is compiled to seek justice at the bands ot bis government. Secretary Marcy states that "Mr. Gibson has been questioned in relation to this paper.'' The meaning these words are obviously intended to convey is, that I have been in an official manner called upon by the department to answer for tbe absence of the letter. In this tense I declare that statement to be false. No official intercourse has ever taken place between the State Department and myaelf on this , subject. In fact, the only conversation I ever ha i with any member of tbe department on the Hubj.-ct of the absence of tbe letter took place on tbe o canon of a social visit at tbe house of Mr. Mann. It was the daty of tbe Secretary to addrew an of i fl ial note to ne, if be had reason totbiak flat I ! could give an explanation of the absenoe of the later. 1 cou d, in that case, have placed on record the extent of my knowledge reUting to the lost letter. I would gladly bave availed myself of such en opportunity, and nave taken great peasnre In fuinisnlcg tbe department with another copy of the letter. Had Secretary Marcy in 'hat Mas thought it neoestary that tbe matter siouid be laid before Congress, the President would, doubtless, bave seen ten prcpne'.y of tranamittlag my state ment with hia own viewa fl What adds to tne injustice of the act of tbe Secre tary Is tbe fact tbat to such demonstration was cal cd for. Had a c< py of ihs lost letter bjea trans mitted will a simple ex- lauation that tbe origioal bad been missed from the fie# ot tbe department, every demand of etiquette would have been satti j fit (I. Had Secretary Marcy b?en my friend, he would have htsitaUd to lay btfoie Congress aid the eorld Mich a statement, even if he had the oest reaoa to know it* tint . He cculd have jiutlned su b a i c< urre by saying that no man of Mnstbinty Will, when not imierativtly demanded by what is due to a laithful ait-char** or duty, Involve another io sn accusant n (.fleeting bis character, however firmly he may be convinced of its truth and justice. Corgress demanded to such explanation. The Dutch minister alote ventured, forgetting all th<> tflat aie re sgoired among the neads of polite nations, to tall t.?e 4tate Department to aeccunt for an impei f<*ct discharge of Its duty in tratamitMhg the documents called for by Cons ees. Secretary Marcy, unconn ious that a grots Warh of dip "tna ic courtesy bad oc cutred in tbe official notice takeu by tbe Dutch Min bm ot the internal affairs ot the department, and apparently desiious ot accounting for tbe sudden ness snd severity oi his attack up?>n rne, transmittal wi h bis Utter tbat or tbe Dutch Minister. Had an American Minister at London ef I'aria have dic tated t<? tbe beads of tbe Ki?gilsn ? Fren:h nations wbat commui icstions should o should not be mide by tbe extcutive beads to tbe legislative assemblies, be won d soon have discovered, by a p ,lite auggett tloz , tbat be was accredited to the bead of t tie na tion, and not sent to spy out Ita internal proceed ings, snd remind ita officers of their neglect of duty. I shall avail myself of the earliest opportunity to lsy before jou tbe t istory ol the letter ol February , 26, pnt forth by the Dutch Minister as having bean sent by me to the Governor General ol Netherlands Itdis. The necessity ol tranalatlng Important do.-u , ments In the Dutch language has delayed t..ia c< mmut ication until the prt sent time. I shall not anti lpate tbe statements which I have to lay be lot a yon on tbat eobj'ct, but can only say, thu when it Is fully unoer*to'>d the duplilty of the Netherlands India government toe a>aa me will be ! too apparent for either denial or evasloo.

The Mboac Bath* Company erected not many yean eiaoe> four mile* from the ooal vela, moat extensive aad exceedingly well planned works for smelting Iron ore. The losatiou wee deemed the beet la the coun try, equidistant from tide water and the greet rivers of the West Tbeir worka, acd the large tawn 1 bollt for the men, were under the di action of really ao'entUlc aad superior men, who locatsd the worka and mills, as they supposed, up Jn or near the great vela of coal acd stra'a of iron ore. The latter could not be fouid, and the former waa four mlea off. Tfcla Taut expenditure of Englisj capital wsssuak aimply becauae the ooal field did not possess the usual accompaniment of Iron ore. Abotr. fourteen miles south of M rant Savage la another evidence of their appreciation of ooal and iron. This establish ment has not been worked with success ou account of lack of otfH. In varioua parts of Maryland exist similar tstabllhhmtnts, which so far have been unproductive. The discovery of iron ore on thu proper y or the Cumberland Coal Company changes the whole (ace of things in that region. The immense woiks in the c< al fl -Ids will spring into Itfa and give vitality to the milli?na if capital invested in them. It is, therefore, highly im,>ortast fiat measure* should be at once adopted to test the extent and quality of tbe ore. The expeiiments already made have, we learn, been saMstactory, so far as q mli'.y la oonewtsed. Cumberland stock is the favorite or the mrrket jnst now. Vi-ginia O'l aold to

tbe extent of nearly thirty thousand dollura to-day, and cloecd at a dncl'ne. A large lot of Indiana 5's waa put forwatd and sold at lower price*. Illinois Central and New York Central bonds were weak. Tbe Harlem Railroad stockholders are qnite ont of patienoe at '.be suppression of tbe report of the af fairs of the company. We understand tliat it is the moat complete report ever man, and no troubls has been spared by the President to Investigating its af fairs, or care in iti preparation. It ha< been com piled and prepare! by the President of the com pany exclusively, acd great credit is due to him for it. But many conjectures arise among the stockholders and tbe public in con sequence of tbe delay to Inform them generally of its contents. Borne surmise that it tells too much of the truth, and that the director! don't want tie whole truth known. Others think there is some more Bchuyleru>m in the direction, and that Sohay ler wan not alone in hla frauds. Wuat foundation there ia for the imaginings of the stockholders and the public about tbeee matters, we know not; but It la remarkable, after what.haa taken place in rela tion to tbe affairs of this company, that there should be the least disposition to withhold from the ato;k holders or the public any Information npon this subject. In tbe affaire of railroad companies there is too much aecretivenem, and we aro glad to see tbe legislator* are taking the matter in hand t> compel railroad companies to publish every montn first, tbe amount of capital stock Issued; second, tbeir liabilities; tLlr?i, gross income for the prevL ous month; and fourth, total amount of d is burne i ments for previous month. This is rlgh*. The Lanka do it weekly, and wby sbonld not railroads mcntbly. This ne< ret management we don't ap prove of. Publicity will have the effestol checking many I rands.
