HOWEVER obscure the character; and humble the name of an individual he is still entitled to justice;— J and bis complaints or appeal for justice, w hen addressed to | the enlightened and impartial tribunal of public opinion, is entitled to the same consideration and should he treated J w-iih the same respect as if his pretentions were backed, by | all the factitious aid, which wealth and honors and widely ! extended reputation could give him. Justice, strict, harsh justice if it pleases, is all that is de ; manded from the community lam now addressing. If this ; is granted me, I do not fear the result of the issue, pending : before the public, notwithstanding the fearful odds arranged against me in tne character, the power and official influence of my accusers. My accusers are a committee, ora portion of a committee, appointed by the Legislature to investigate the affairs of the Lank of Macon and the cause of its failure and the grounds ofaccusation will be found in a report, made to that body by j said committee. The charge against me, though not distinctly made—May be stated in its full force thus;-a violation of a contract with the Bank of Macon to furnish said Bank (.’old bullion I at the price or sum of 98 cts. per dw-t. which it is alleged in ! the report, is one of the causes though one of ” minor impor- i | lance,” that tended to produce the present disastrous state of j * affairs, growing out of the recent failure of the “Bank of I j Macon.” Had the committee confined itself to the establish-! | .cent of this charge, by a fair, decent comment on the testi | mony, which was adduced, the reply it would have elicited, j would have been much leS3 painful both to the members of I that committee and myself. If the ascertainment of plain, j simple honest truth had been their object and hail they been j disp.-cd to make no other impression on the public mind, thaiaavhat was natural from such a source, they would | scarcely have buen so lost to self-respect, and have departed ! so far from common decency in argument, as to descend to a ! mere quibble, one of the answers in iny testimony and from | ; w hich loosing sight of the main accusation, they pretend to j deduce the charge of “ gross ignorance or gross corruption.” { The alternative pressed upon me by the committee, ibev doubtless believe very charitable and may be astonished to' learn that it cannot be accepted. If Ido not shew clearly that the author of that report, at least, is justly obnoxious to the first branch of bis alternative, I shall be perfectly w il ling to acquiesce in the applicate u of the lattlr to myself. They have a recital of the whole of my answer to the seventh interrogatory upon which the charge is founded, will be en tirely sufficient to shew that no equivo-ation or evasion was intended. it is as follows “ I have taken up a large amount of Macon Tills; I am not able to slat, how much ; neither do I know how- much I had on hand at the time of the failure. I paid, part of the Bills on my receipts, the balance I have on hand, mid inthe hands of agents that l have Hot settled with." In the re-' capitulation of my testimony in the body of the report, the committee have attempted to do me great injustice. They say “ in the answer of R. S. Patton to the 7th int.” he swears “ that I am not ab'e to state how much, neither do I know i how much 1 had on hand at the time of the failure,” and thir. answer they alledge affords abundant grounds to answer me | “fur gross ignorance or gross corruption.” Omitting calire | ly the last branch of my answer, which I have inserted in! | italics, that it may receive particular notice, which fully re- ■ j conciles every apparent difference in any of the parts and ; \ clearly establishes the truth of the whole, the committee have | seized upon a garbled extract from ray answer and altempt -1 ed by arts, that would disgrace the lowest pettifogger in a ! court of justice, to make an impression on the public mind! against me. which the testimony when taken together ;md : considered justly, will n l warrant. Why did 1 not know j “ how much Macon money I had on hand at the time of the : | Banks failure!” The reason is given inthe same answer i from which tiie garbled extract lias besu made, and that part which has been suppressed by the committee; simply because , I had money in the hands of agents with whom l hud not settled. Aud yet the committee would require that I should know to j a cent, on a particular day named by themselves; how much money in bills on a specified Bank, I bad on hand, notwith standing too 1 had put large amounts in the hands of agents,! w ho were at distance from me and with whom 1 bad made no settlements. They would require that 1 should be able to tel! promptly, what sum i I'money I had in iny pockets, on every occasion—really ibis is demanding a great deal from uny man, certainly mure than could be expected from one, according to their own statements, who was in the habit of daily irafiie and who used from one tfl one hundred and for ty-five thousand dollars. But 1 do not believe, that the disposition of the committee ■ to do uie injustice, by this inisrsprcsentatioii of my testimo ny, can escape the observation of any person of common sa gacity, who will give the subject a moments consideration, ’ l will not therefore, consume more time in exposing that, which must be obvirns to all. I cannot consent how ever t lose this opportunity 0 f presenting; principally for their com mittees own benefit, St specimen of their undoubted impartiality it tnay serve to console them, for the errors which they them selves may hereafter detect in their report. It has pleased the committee to speak in terms of approbation of the con doetot I . Atkinson, Esq. late Cashier, of the Macon Hank, and to endorse his administration of the affairs of that institu tion as "luir and correct.” In their comment on his testimo ny too, every thing was fair and correct ; the most eenetrating subtlety could not detect an inconsistency. Nothin" was found in his testimony, not even agnrbbd extract, which would authorize the committee to press upon them the unpleasant alternative of “gross ignorance or gross corruption” Vet the following extract, from his testimony, w ill shew that the committee had the same grounds lot censuring Mr. Atkiuson, for whiclta they condemned me. The 3d interrogatory ad dressed to Mr. Atkinson, is ns follows, “have any notes or bills of llie Dank of Macon bean cancelled an.! burned, or oth er') ise withdrawn from circulation, during your being in office —’fony, what amount ? I'he answer is “ I'atrc have eome," Now it must be obvious that the answer does not afford the information to any extent, called for by the interrogatory ihe object of the committee must havo been to ascertain w hut niuouat of hi 1! s had been destroyed; this was necessary to arrive at the very important knowledge, what amount were still in eirct latioit. It cannot ba pretended that Mr. Atkin son who was the Cashier, could be ignorant on this subject. It was his duty to possess a fair record of every bill that bad been burned or otherwise withdrawn from circulation and no one can doubt if this duty had been performed and the wit ness allow ed time tor examination “be could iiave answered the question to the satisfaction of any one, without any kind of difficulty whatever. ’ \et the committee required, that I should ho able, at tne moment to say w hat amount of money 1 had in my hands on a particular day, i r submit to a charge of “gross ignorance or gross corruption ;” whilst they permit another individual who held “ the truly delicate and respon sible situation” of cashier to the Hank, and who could not tell what amount ol the bills of that bank had been destroyed or withdrawn from circulation, not only topdks w ithout cen sure, hut as it to make thcil partiality men. have endorsed his whelo conduct as perfectly “fair and correct.” I certain ly have no disposition to find fault with the approbation, bes towed by the committee upon the conduct of Mr Atkinson ; I hcliave he deserves it, if the committee had extended to me the same justice and judged my conduct by the same stan dard they did Iris', I should have no cause to find fault myself— as it is. there is an obvious distinction made between us; ei ther. Atkinson has great reason to Licit their merry, or 1 have abundant cause to caret their injustice. - Leaving the Committee to reconcile in the best manner they can, to their own consciences and to the just sense of the community—a tribunal to which they, as well as myself are responsible—this flagrant act of partiality and injustice, I shall proceed, with all practicable brevity, to reply to the only remaining part ol (be Jleport w hich duty to myself the quires that I should notice. The Report if the Committee discloses the fact, that on the IGth day of February, 183'A 1 made a c ntraet with the Hank of Macon, to furnish said Hank, gold bullion at the price of ninety-eight cents perdw t.; and the belter to enable me to make the purchase, the Hank agreed to advance, from time to time, such sums of money as were necessary for that purpose. This contract 1 continued strictly to fulfil up to the period of the failure of the Bank, and even a few days before its failure, I paid in a sum exceed ing the enormous amount of $30,000 in gold, SSOOO of which was paid the day before the failure was announced; but be cause I did not still go on to purchase and deliver to the Bank, large sums of gold, after it had stopped payment and was notoriously insolvent, the Committee have charged me with lad faith in the execution of my contract. To this it would appear necessary only to reply, that rny contract with the Hank was not limited to an v particular period ;—the Bank had a right at any time to notify me that the contract was at an end, and stop lnv ; —1 surely had the same right w henever I thought proper, to cease all further operations un der the contract, and to refund to the Bank any amount of mo ney I had on hand. But the Committee, in order to sustain the charge again*; me of lad faith in the execution of my con tract, have been driven to assume the ground, that I acted as the mere agent of the Hank, and was bound in all my opera tions by its instructions. This fact, it will appear from the testimony appended to the Report, they dil'ger.tly sought to establish bv every witness at all acquainted w ith the tran sacticn. The question was addressed directly to Mr. Atkin i son, the Cashier, in the Isth interrogatory—“llad the Bank j of Macon any agent or agents during the spring and sum mer of 1532. engaged in the pcrchas* or conn 1” The an swer was, “There was a contract entered into with Robert is. Patton.” So did every man who at any time borrowed money from the Bank of Macon, for the purpose of purebas log g°M, or fur any other purpose, make a contract with the Bank, which lie v. as hound to redeem at the time of the con tract, by the payment f gold or silvet; (not bullion) butcoin ; —yet there cannot be found a single individual, wno became indebted to the Bank of Macon previous to its failure, who has not, subsequent to that event, availed himself of the riglu to discharge his debts in bills upon that Bank. The annexed certificate of Mr. Atkinson, marked [A] will shew conclusive ly that I was not considered, by the officers of the Bank at least, its agent, lie says there was no correspondence between ■ the Bank and myself—-that no instructions were at any lime given me by the Hunk—that no control was pretended to be excr ised by the link over my conduct and that / was left entirely to my own government, and that no compensation ivas allowed j me, but what / could make by purchasing gold for less than its I real value. With this statement Os the Cashier before him, it ■ is difficult to conceive how any man can arrive at the couclti- j sion that 1 acted in the character of agent to the Bank. There | was not only no intercourse between us, no institruuctions I given me, no control exercised over my conduct, but there was no pretence of any authority to control me — all right of di rection over my conduct, in relation to that transaction, is ex ; prestly disclaimed. To establish, then, the fact that I was the agent of the Bank, it must be shewn that the agent is entire ly distinct and independent of his principal. W henever the “gentleman from (Irecue,” may choose to employ his pro ; fessional acuteness in the attempt to establish such a doc trine, he may add to a reputation already acquired as the au thor of his celebrated “Macon Bank Report.” To elucidate stßl farther, the character of my ronnexioii with the Macon Bank, 1 beg leave to call the attention of the auh'oined certificate (BA (1.) the former a cashier of the Ma rine, the latter of the Darien Bank, by which it will heshown that 1 was furnished money, by each of those Inslitutitions, for precisely the same object I received it from the Mar.oy j Bank and that I never was considered an .Igent by either of | them. Upon the reading of these certificates, I do not be lieve any man will be able to distinguish between Hie nature ! of my connexion with the Marine and Darien Banks, and the relation I bore the Bank of Macon. From the two former l borrowed a sum of money to ho applied, to the purchase of gold—from the Inst 1 done the same to all, I gave my receipts, und each made the loan free of interest. The only difference which exists, is, ns to the mode of The Marine and Darien Banks requires payment in Savannah funds, the “premium on j which was Considered equivalent to the interest.” The Ma- j con Bank preferring gold bullion at its own door, which w as also worth a premium equivalent to the interest. Suppose it! had been out of my power, or from some other cause I had j failed to pay the Marine and Darien Banks in checks on S tv- i annali, what would have been the consequence T Would 1 they not have been compelled to receive their own hills with j the interest! Could they have objected to this! Surely not.! The premium on the Savannah funds would be only equiva I i lent to the interest; and the payment of the interest would make up for the loss of l\ivpremium !

Hut 1 defy the committee by the severest scrutiny into the settlement of my account with the Bank of Macon, to shew any fraud or the slightest injury to the bill holders. Suppose for a moment, I had at the time of .he fail ure of the Bank, all the gold suspected by the committee or twice as much, and had paid it into the Bank, would it not have been paid otit.tothc bill holders* could have redeemed a greater amount of hills, than it was worth! Or suppose 1 had retained the gold and employed it myself in the purchase of the hills from the hands of the holders, would not the same amount be redeemed! and can it bo considered of eons*- quence, who redeems the bills! It is * p ] u i tl matter, and eve ry man must understand it who will give it a moment’s reflec tion.
