CASE OF HON. THOSH. BAYLY.

March 3, 1855.–Laid upon the table and ordered to be printed.

Mr. Witte, from the Select Committee, made the following

REPORT.

The Select Committee appointed by the resolution of the House of Represen

tatives, of July 21, 1854, to investigate the charges preferred by B. E. Green against the Hon. Thos. H. Bayly, ask leare to submit the following final report:

In a report submitted to the House of Representatives on the 3d day of August, 1854, by Mr. Walley, the committee stated that B. E. Green, the complainant, had “ failed entirely to establish the first charge.” In relation to the second charge and specifications, the committee have examined the testimony, and unanimously come to the opinion that the allegations charged are not proved. One of the committee, Mr. Hill, desires to make a qualification in his admission, to wit : “ That though, in his opinion, Mr. Bayly made statements which to some may seem erroneous, and used arguments tending to erroneous conclusions affecting Mr. Green, yet there was not evidence to fix on Mr. Bayly an improper or fraudulent intent in so doing, and with this qualification he assents to and signs the report."

The committee ask to be discharged from the further consideration of the subject.
