not a very material application to the
main subject of the inquiry. It seemer"

After a patient attention to all the evi

Committee see no cause lo change or
modify, in any material respect, the re
sults to which they came on the former

I he CM.Ir reniainlng charge wbich ma
be regarded as not before examined, is
an allegation, or intimattoo, tbat, owing
to the Lult of the Secretary, tbe pension

Il does not appear that any knowledge
ol these payments having been made in de
preciated paper, was communicated lo the
Secretary. The measurea adopted by him
tor the reasonable provision ol a proper
fund st the place ol disbursement, were,
s far the Committee cab juae, suitable
nd juiiicious. He had a rignt to expect Ibt
pa) itienltobe luauein specie, or itsequiv
Itiil ; or at leat lo be informed if any
thing abould happen to prevent such pay
mriu. No iiilorioaiion was given to him
ol any disuppoiuiuicnt of his expectation
in lias respect, by those whose duty it
s to pay i and uo complaint appears to
have been preferred by Most wftoat rrgni
it was to icceive.
In ri'ard to the contested letter of
Iliujjmiu Mepurnion, of tbe 12th of
October, 18 li), tne t.omtnittee see no
caUat to change the opinion which was
cii riuiiieu, and which they intended to
ixv'-ss in tin ir former report, that al
iiiai"jt, tre letiei was wrillen, al Hited by
Mr Liiw.'ro in his testimony, there was
noeviiln.ee t .at Mr. Stepneaaon com
luunuattd or irnsiniucd it to tbe Secre
tary ot thr I -eaaury.
1 be t onimiwce uo not deem it neces
aary io extend their report by protracted
observations on the various parts of the
evidence, as the whole is submitted to the
svitiK.that, in their opinion, nothing has
been proved to impeach the integrity of
tha Secretary, or to hrirttf into doubt Ihe
general correctness and abilits of bis ad
ministration of the public finances.
To this point, as tbe main object of in
quiry, tbe chief attention of the commit
tee has been directed; and they have
rome to the reult which haa now been
stated, with the unanimous concurrence
ol the members present.
Other points there are, of less impor
tance, but which may, nevertneiess, do
supposed itol to have. escaped considera
tion by the Committee-
i hese, however, under all the circum
starxea, they have thought it proper to
leave without observation, in the light in
which they are placed by the evidence.
