A Washington correspondent writing in reference to the change of front by a number of Northern members, says, it will be well for the people to investigate closely the motives of the members from the North, who have changed their position on this question. The charges and the proofs of bribery are thick as autumn leaves. One man admits that he expects to obtain for his vote the post of Governor of Minnesota. Another notoriously sold his for the appointment of postmaster to a small town in his district. Upon the whole, the history of the affair from the beginning has been that of a corrupt intervention by the Executive with the independence of Congress. What compensation did the eleven Pennsylvania "doughfaces" receive for their treachery to the North?
