The vote was as follows:--yeas, Messrs. Anthony, Baker, Bingham, Cameron, Chandler, Clark, Collamer, Dixon, Doolittle, Durkee, Fessenden, Foote, Foster, Grimes, Hale, Harlan, King, Seward, Simmons, Sumner, Ten Eyck, Trumbull, Wade, Wilkinson, and Wilson.

The leading conspirators in the Senate, who might have defeated the amendment and carried the Crittenden Compromise, did not vote. This reticence was preconcerted.

This was proposed by Mr. Lovejoy, of Illinois, and was passed by a vote of ninety-two against fifty-five. The Senate took measures at an early day to purge itself of treasonable members. On the 10th, July. on motion of Mr. Clark, of New Hampshire, it expelled ten Senators who were named, James M. Mason and Robert T. M. Hunter, of Virginia; Thomas L.

Mitchell, of Arkansas; and John Hemphill and Louis T. Wigfall, of Texas. because of their being engaged in a conspiracy for the destruction of the Union and the Government. The resolution for expulsion received the required vote of two-thirds of the Senate (thirty-two against ten); and, on the 13th, the places of Hunter and Mason were filled by John S. Carlile
