In reply to this statement, Mr.jroldsborough
aaid, it was not bis intention to engage t in the de
bute on the; subject immediately underxthe con
sidcrjtion of the committee. ' He rose Only for
the purpose of noticing whut had been said by ht
gintlejmah from Teunessee (Mr. Grundy) on the
subiect of the Russian mediation. It-was obvi-
dusAlr.G- said, that a history of the time when
and -manner in which the Kussian minister had
tendered to our government the good offices of
his impel ial master, as a mediator between the
trifed Stale and Great Britain. ' had nothing to
do with the question now before the committee
whtch was, what sum should be appropriated, to
defray the expences of the mission to which that
mediation had given rise-Yet the gentleman
from Tennessee had thought proper to produce
to the committee a paper which, as he said, wa9
furnished by and in the hand writing of the Sccre
tar of State himself, and from it to make a
statement, the direct and evident object of which
wss to djsprove the truth of a statement made a
Yew day ago respecting the Russian . mediation
ty his friend and colleague (Mr. Hanson) and
thy to impeach the veracity of that gentleman,
who 'happened at this time to be absent fiom the
House. Mr. TG: said, that he had the most en
tire confidence in the veracity ar.d general integii
ty ol his coUeague, nnd as he was not here to
viiKiicaie himself, he (Mr. G ) deemed it his duty
to repel the attack thus made upon the correct ,
cess of his friend. This, Mr. G- said, it was
V cry easy to do, as recollection of what had beeh
$ta:ed some days ago on this subject by his col
league, and an attention to the statement now
given to the committee, urder :t.e authority of

very few persons during his walk" to Hampton ;
among the number not more than two .cr three
women, but from their, appearance he judged
them not to be of the genteel class. After his
arrival at Hampton, he met with Doctor Coul.

hours ; and accompanied him to the hospital, re
