fniltee respocting the tands of the' United
tates, a debate of tome length ensued, in
vhich the amendment was supported by
Nessrs. Gregg, Nicholson and Smi.ie;md
oppoted by Mr. ftcdinger.
.. Mr. , Btiinpr auggestcd his fears, least a
standing committee, vetted with the entire
buiness connected wit huta public lands .
should gain such an ascendancy over the
sentiments, and decisions of the House, by
the confidence reposed in them, as to impair
Jhe sslutary vigilance witU which it became
every member to attend to so Interesting
subject. , , .
rvf ty other hand It was contended that
he buii.ess,of the, llouie would oo this
jioi'nt, be irrtatlv facilitated hv tha
of attnd'.a j cemmlttec, whose dtcisipna i
woumoe uimorm, who would from along
experience become more enlightened than a
select committee, and who would be enabled
to dispatch the business confided to them
with greater etltritv.

Ly tAiny off the txistlar restriclion on te
Importaiion afi'irid which precluded their,

The friends of the bill declared the case

the peculiar circumstance attending li.
Tbey represented that delay in thia case
