He expresses confidence in his ability to fully vindicate himself, and sho states that after iMcC'omb Grst testified, last wiutcr, about some letter ho had from Ames, as to some of hio rulings as speaker, he (Colfax) addressed a letter to the chairman of the committee asking ask-ing that McUomb be required to either produce the letter or point to the ruling, eo that it could be oxamined by any parliamentary expert as to its correctness. cor-rectness. Colfax desires to go before tho committee the very day that Ames returns to the city, their conflicting statements having been given thus far in the presence of both.
