Mirh further order on u ui should to it appear ex
pediert. A good deal of debate arose on the question
of thus discharging the committee from the sub
ject. It was opposed by Messrs. Roberta and Smith,
chiefly on the ground tht, as a specific inquiry
had been referred, a specific report, cither for or
oj$aint the object, ought to be made ; that this
mode of disposing of such an inquiry was an in
nova' ion of legislative custom ; that, as the chair
man had, with great Industry, collected a mass of
information on the subject, it was proper to sub
mit it to the Senate, with an opinion, no matter
how concise, of the committee ; that, as the com
mittee had come to a decision on thc subject mat

ported, fccc.'&c Mr. Macon thought the docu
ments, at any rate, ought to be laid before the
Senate, that it might have the same light on the

The motion to discharge the committee was
nipnorted bv Messrs. Vana, Stoke; Oti, and
JAnkon, of Ky. for the reasons, generally, that,
as the committee could agree upon no plan of
reduction, they could come to no practical con
clusion, and therefore could make no pccihc re
port or recommendation ; that the committee
had tried the question on one salary and amount
of compensation after another, but a majority
C6ujd not unite on any one point ol rrduction ;
that the information possessed by the committee
would be and was after thc discussion commen

proposed, of discharging a committee which

circumstances, the most parliamentary and logi
cal ; that there was an incongruity in ajommit

The question being taken on discharging the
committee from the further consideration of the
subject, it was decided in the negative, by yeas
and nays; Yeas 14, Nays 31.
Alter a short time, Mr! Dana delivered in the
following report :
