After Hecretary Bnyord hud prepared this state- nient ho walked over to tho AVhito Housa and submitted it to tho I'rcsidcnt for bis approval. Tlio I'revldont perused It carefully and suggested a few verbal changes In tho introduction, and when these hid been mado- tlio members of the press were furnished copies of it. The following is tho full text of Hecrctary Bayard's stnteinont: "To tho President: The imde'rsigiiod has tho honor to submit for your consideration the following statement, with a view to ro- ceivo your direction thereon. "On tho 4th of b'eptombor last n letter purporting to have been written by one Churles F. Murchison, dated at Pomoiiia, Cal., was sent from that place t:i thoUritish minister at this capital, In which the writer solicited an expression of his views In regard to certain unsuttlort diplomatic questions between tho United States .and Grout Britain, stating at tho sanm time that such an expression was sought for by him for the purpose of determining his voto at th« approaching Presidential election. Ho stated that he was a naturalized citizen of tho United States of Kngllsh birth, but that .hu still considered" Knglnud the mother country, and this fact led him to seek udvieo from tho British representative in this country. Ho further state 1 that tho information ho Bought was not for himself alone, but to en•bio him to give certain assurance to many other persons In the KUIIIO situation as himself, for the purpose of influencing nnd determining their political action as citizens of fho United States of English birth, but who still regarded their original obligations as paramount. Tlio lotter also contains gross lultoctions u|xm tho conduct of this government in respect to questions now in controversy uiid unsettled between the United States and Groat Britain, und both directly und indirectly imputed insincerity In such conduct. Mr. AVfdl'Vdfr.-iKi.. "To this letter tlio British minister at once replied from Beverly, Mass., under, duto of tho IHth of f-eptcinber last. In this reply ho stated tluit any politlcul"pnrty which openly .favors the mother country ut the present moment 'would lose popularity und that tho party in power is fully awaro of that fact,'nnd that iu respect to tlio 'questions with Canada which'.have been unfortunately reopened tiuco tho rejection of tliu [flshcrii-H] treaty by tho Republican majority in tho Senate, und by tho President's message to which you ulludo. All allowances must therefore bo mado for the political situation us rogards tho 1'resi- duntial election.' "The miiiister thus gave his assent und Banctlon to tho aspersions and imputations abovo referred to. . "Thus under his correspondent's assurance of secrecy, iu which the minister concurred by marking his answer 'private,' ho undertook to advise a citizen of the United States how to exerciso t'.io franchise of sutrrugu iu an election close ut hand for tho Presidency nnd - Yico-PiTsidcncy of tho United .Status; and through him, as the letter suggested, to influence the votes of many others. "Upon this (orrespondenee being mado public tlio minister received the representatives of tho public preis, and in frequent Interviews with (hum intended for publication lidded to tlui impugnments which ho hud already made of the good fuitli of this government in its public action und.inter- national dealings, Alth'iugh ampin timo and opportunity have been alfordeiMiini for the withdrawal, modification, or correction of his statements, to smuu of which his attention was culled personally by tho undersigned, yet no such disavowal or modification bus been mudu by him through tho channels in which hU statement-! first found publicity. Cnniiot lla Permitted.

And thu Queen sent her luut dcnpiilrinp; mopsiigo: "Tho Holy Synod not being qualified to concern Itself with divorce, I protest energetically against this Iniquity und Illegality." . • Thusu letters will go into history.
