N..B. From the inesperience of youth, it often hap

Itt theso they too successfully indulge, notwithstanding
the care and vigilance of the teacher and trustees. The
teacher, especially, suffers the blame, although errors of
this kind are committed without his knowledge and per
"minion. Aware of this, and at the same time desirous
to afford every reasonable security to parents and guar
dians, the following rules will be strictly Standi d to :
Every student shall be confined to on4W: tpilar store
for the purchase of those articles of whiouiie may stand

No student shall, La permitted . to, j)Uy at unlawful

r A. !:
idc.s, bu: in ether even!, A. B. is elected President
cf the tnitcd stales: and in lac same manner for Vice
Mi-.L'lity olTered some remarks explanatory of
the ensidcrations which governed the commit
tee in recommending the resolutions which had
been itjKjrtccl. As convenience rendered it ne
rcMs.ii J for the Senate to meet this House here,
in its tivn hull, it was due to that body, by cour
tesy aid propiicty, that the President should
be invicd to preside, he being the officer desig
nated y the Constitution to perform' a certain
duty appertaining to the occasion which called
the ty) Houses together. As to the second res
olution, the state of the votes for President and
Vice President was well known, though unoffi
cially, and, as the votes of Missouri could not
i affect the 'esult, it was considered by the com
mittee, to obviate the unpleasant difficulty which
would otherwise arise in the joint meeting, better
to provide for the case in the manner proponed.
This course was deemed by the committee the
most expedient, under ail the circumstances, and
he hoped the House would adopt it, the more
especially as the Senate had already concurred
The question was then taken on the resolu
tions, and agreed to.
On motion of Mr. Clav, k was then ordered,
that a message be sent to the Senate, informing
ilidt body that this House, on its part, concurs in
the report of the joint committee, and is now pic
pared to proceed, with the Seriate, in the per
formance of its constitutional duly.
Messrs. Clay, Sergeant, and V;n Henseldcr,
were the committee on the pan -of the House of
Representatives, to act with the committee of the
Senate, in considering the proper mode of pio
cecdine in regard to counting out the Electoral
On motion of Mr. Clay, and by general con
sent, it was determined that the members f thb
House should receive the Semite, on ihtir en
trance into the House, standing and uncovered.
In the same manner, it was determined that a
sufficient number of the seats on the right hand
of the chair should be set apart lor the Senators.
Mr. Clay moved that a committee of two mem
bers be appointed to Teceive. the Senate, and con
duct the President of the Senate to thechair,
and the. members to the seats asdM)cd to them.
Mr-Nelson., of Virginia, declared bis oppo
sition to this course. It had never heretofore
been done. It had been usual for th Speaker
of the House to recti vc the President of the Srn
ateijndjnviie UiiiiTo a &cat bcs'ule hin. ; and he
sTrneadont4niffier foFthe-projposcd ftr
novationi Mr. Clay said it was true it never had been
done before ; but having, whilst he bad the honor
to preside over this'House, witnessed the embar
rassment occasioned by the want of such a regu
lation, he now thought it would be proper to
adopt it. - '
The motion of Mr. Clay was then agreed to
without a division, though not 'withcunicjanvei
M tcMkpirrtm arked-- in an. undr-one,4hat
he wished he' had required the Yeas and Nays
Soon after, the Senate came into the Hall,
preceded by 'its President, and attended by itstt
Secretary and Sergeant at, Arms: and the Presi
dent was conducted to the Speaker's Chair, the
Speaker occupying achair at hi left haEd. -the
Prehidem of the Senate then delivered tht
vote of the states, in the following xrder, to the
committee for counting the votes, (Mr. BarLour
of tlie Senate, and Messrs. Smith ofMd.and Ser
geant, of this House) and the official authenti
cations, Sec', were each q them twice lead in an
a.udible tonerahd the vbt6s recorded by- the Sec-
.ji k .it ; in Mar sacnuvtts, lor iticnarn atoc.

Harper one vote.
The process of this ceremonr was very tedi
ous, from the length of the verifications, procla
mations, 8cc. and the house did'not arrive at this
stage of it till after 4 o'clock.
When the votes of the Electors for Miuwri
were announced by the President of the Senate,
and handed to the tellers,
Mr. Livkrmouk, of New Hampshire, rose,
and said Mr. President and Mr. Speaker, I ob
ject to receiving any votes for President and Vice
President from Missouri, because Missouri is
not a state of this Union. This objection, he pre
sumed, would bo recorded on the Journal of the
On motion of a Senator, the Sickate withdrew
to its apartment.
Mr. Floyd, of Virginia, then rose and submit
ted the following resolution
Retohtd, That Missouri is one of the states of this
Union, and her votes for President and Vice President of
these United States ought to be received and counted.
Mr. F. said, be believed, that gentlemen must
now begin to see the precipice to which the de
cisions of this house in respect to Missouri had
brought them. He was, as every member must
be, tired of the debate on this subject ; but he
thought that no one could discharge his duty as,
he ought without investigating the merits of the
question which he had no v proposed. He thought
it proper, also, that the Yeas and Nays should
be recorded on every question connected with
this subject. That the votes of states, whose ad
mission into the Union hud not been declared
pre ious to the votes being given in, had heretofore
been received for President and Vice President,
he believed the gentleman from N. Hampshire
would not deny. If such a course had been right
heittofore,hc did not see why an objection should
now be made. If innovations on established usage
were to be justified by their novelty, then indeed
all disquisitions on the subject were vain. But
the time was, when members from new states
wci c admitted to their scats in this house, without
the previous passage of a declaratory resolution.
That there wits a law on the statute boqk that
any territory having a population of sixty thou
fftmd souls might form a constitution and state
govct nmept, and be adhiitted into life Union, no
enc would deny. Wherever wc turn our eyes,
said Mr. V. and observe the progress of the go
vernment, until the present time, the states have
been admitted upon this principle, until in the
present case ; and in this case, at the last session,
compromise, as it was thought and called, was
entered into. Air. r. hesitated to express in
terms nil that he thought on thii subjeVt4ut:he---would
say, if he had voted for that law at the last
session, and opposed now those principles which
would naturally giow oot of it, he should have
said to himself, when he had done so, that he had
done in his life one act which he thought dishon
orable. Let us now, said he, have the question
fairly at issue. Let us know whether Missouri .
be a, stale in the Union or not. If not, let us send
hw-ao-AmUassador, and treat for, her admission-
into the Union. Sir, we cannot take another step,

destruction. For oae, I say, 1 have gone as far . ,
as I can go In the way of cpmpromise-and if r' 1
there is to be a compromise beyond that point, it
must be at the edae of the sword,
Mr. Archf.r,oV Md. said, that entertaining the
same sentiments a the gentleman from Virgin
ia wiihucKpcctto the refusal to 'admit Missouri . .
into the L'riion,he yet felt himself bound to move,
as he now did, to postpone the further censidera
uon of this resolution indefinitely. He was oppo
sed to this house undertaking to proceed in any
manner as to the legality or illegality ol the Klcc- . '
toral votes. He could recognize no tvowern the .
