Remarks on the franking privileges, and today something of an obscure controversy. Vallandigham, an Ohio Democrat who would be exiled during the war for treasonable remarks, makes a brief mention of such worthy publications as the Railroad Surveys: "These, sir, are your monuments, more durable than brass, and nobler far than the marble with which you have built this Capitol, and those other splendid edifices which adorn this city."
