A GROSS EBBOR.
!Vas it ignorance or. a purpose to
deceive that caused Senator Morton
to state in his speech , in the Senate
thjit Mr. Mason, of Virginia, in 1857,
when tem aorarily actingpas President
of the Senate, had decided that he
alone had the power to open aud
connt the electoral Totes?; Senator
Morton if a very able man, fully
eqnal to a ay Senator, and he is well
' informed in political matters. How
conld he he mistaken in his confident
assertion r Was he really ignorant,
.or was he simply mean? VYVe give
him the benefit of ;the former 'sop-'
position. We know thai others were
' resting under a, like misconception of
the facts, among them a prominent
Democratic Senator." "We are not
disposed to do injustice to even as
' hitter and unscrupulous a partisan as
we regaic Senator ; Morton' to be.
We presume then that he had simply
blundered through, ignorance, or a
proper knowledge i of the exact senti
ments of Senator Mason. ' , ,
So far from claiming the (one-man
power" as belonging lo 4ba :Piesi

alone has the power given him under
. the Constitution to open Srhd count
