Mr Wise inquired if the chairman ofthe
Committee on Finance what jurisdiction he
proposed to the Select Committee on -. 1' i
nance. He saw by his. resolution that he
roposed to refer the general subject of finance
to the Committee of Wavs aud Means; the
subject of ihe tariff to the Committee on
Manufactures; and the plan ol finance to the
Select Committe. Now the explanation he
wished was, whether the Select Committee
was to be confined to the plan of finance re
ferred to in the President's message or were
they to consider themselves at liberty to con
sider the subject of the currency" generally,
and the propriety of altering, amending, or
proposing a substitute for that plan.
Mr Fillmore did not suppose there would
be any conflict between the committees as
to their relative powers. He supposed that
the attention of the Select Committee would
be confined to that poition ofthe President's
message to be found in )3ge 11, relating to
ihe Fiscal Agent ofthe Treasury. The Com
mittee on Manufactures would consider that
Dortiou relating to the tariff, while the Com
mittee of Ways and Means would be confin
ed to that portion ofthe message at page S,
relating to the receipts and expenditures of
the Treasury Department.
Mr Wise then observed that his commit
tee, he supposed, would have thti genetal sub
ject of the currency before them, and that they
were at liberty to adopt, alter, or propose a
substitute for ihe President's plan of finance,
if they thought proper. ? , . -fi
M r Atherton asked for. the reading of the
resolutions again, which having been done, .
Mr A: remarked thai he had supposed that
if a tariff was'to be laid for, the purpose of re
venue alone, and not, for. the protection "of
manufactures, : the proper ; reference, of that
subject would be to the Committee of VVays
aud Means. Heretotore, whenever the ques
tion came up , with regard to the disposition
of this portion of' the President's message,
those who were willing to vote for a tariff for
protectim, and to lay duties for the express
purposej of encouragiug domestic manufac
tures, and not for revenue alone, had general
ly been in favor of' referring" it to the Com
mittee on Manufactures ; while,1:' on the other
hand, those who supposed that a tariff should

conduct of Ens-land towards us. She has insulted
our flag on the seas, the great high road of nations,
by seizing, searching, and detaining our merchant

and insists upon the right to do so, (notwithstand
ing ihey may be engaged in a lawful rrade with the

pretf nee that her treaties with other powers, and lo
which we are not parties, are to give laws to the

the President hopes that England wrl do better in

again hopes that England will be satisfied with the
mannerin which he was tried and let off, and sug-
