5559. MORRIS (Gouverneur), Opposition to.—[continued].

The nomination of Mr.
Morris was so extremely unpopular, and so little
relished by several of the Senate, that every
effort was used to negative it. Those whose
personal objections to Mr. Morris overruled
their deference to the President, finding themselves
in a minority, joined with another small
party who were against all foreign appointments,
and endeavored with them to put down
the whole system rather than let this article
pass. This plan was defeated, and Mr. Morris
passed by a vote of 16 against 11.—
