that these men spake as they were moved

invalidate this testimony, by showing, cith

witnesses themselves were either im; impe

Seott from the charge of " entering "' in

Convention by which he was nominated
was in any degree "suspicious.'' lie who
can believe such an insinuation, must sure
ly be a voliinttir in faith.

may be considered, it may nevertheless be
asserted, that Gen. Seott s view may have

alluded to ; (specially, during the session of
