Six months later he died at Huntsville. Badger was nominated at

I appeal to the senators from Alabama not to break the agreement sanctioned by the earliest votes in the Senate of their late most honored fellow-citizen, William Rufus King. Sir, I have heard of honor that felt a stain like a wound. If there be any such in this Chamber,—and sureliously considered. The debate went over to the 28th, when the assaults on Sumner were renewed. The pro-slavery party now showed increased venom; and Pettit, Mallory, Afterwards Secretary of the Navy in the Confederate cabinet. and Clay of Alabama were prepared with the most opprobrious epithets. Pettit began the day with a personal explanation concerning the official report of the preceding debate; and on Sumner's stating that he himself had used the language there given, Pettit cried o

On Cass's motion he was appointed one of the two members of the commitson, the chieftain of the border ruffian Democracy. Similar scenes occurred from time to time in the debate.
