Mr. .Mitchell, of South Carolina, s:iid
he honed the gentleman from Massachu

ihc precious time of the House would not
be suffered to be occupied with a matter
of this description. We are not so cnsi -
tive ourselves, said Mr. M. in regard to the
reputation of the members of this House ;
when our conduct is assailed in the news
papers, wc do not call for the authors, or
appoint committees to inquire into the
truth of the imputations against us. lie
was verv certain, he said, that Gales and
Seaton had conducted themsilves proper
ly in the discharge of their duties, and
were deserving of the confidence of this
House. But, if any attack was made up
on their characters bv others, why nt let
them resort to the Courts of Justice r .
Are we, he said, going to investigate news
paper slanders ? To convert ourselves in
to an inquest on characters? It is unbe
coming in us to appoint a committee
merely on the foundation of a newspaper
paragraph. It would be otherwise if any
charge were presented by a member
against these gentlemen. As it was, he
hoped the resolution, kc. would be suffer
ed to lie on the table.

Mr. Wuiciit intimated bis opinion
that it was very improper to go into an in
ustigation of the subject itself on a nitre
question, whether the House would in
quire into it or not. He. hoped, uficr what
had passed, that a large committee would
be raised to inquire into the mat'ir.
Mr. Mcl.svr", of Deltwaie, thought
that where anv impu ation wns seriously
made on any officer of this House, it ought
to be investigated. He was, therefore, in
favor of the resolution not because he
iK-lieved there had been anv f ttlt on the
part of the prirters to this Houie, or be

Mr. Aacnm, of irgima, expressed
hi surmize Hut the rrentleman from S
Carolina should have expressed his entire
confidence in the punters, and yet have
unnoted the nronoscd inquiry. Here is
the grave assertion of one of the most
respectable members of the House, that
the House has been imposed upon by
them or by somebody else : Messrs. Gales
: k Seaton are at present Printers to this
House, and it is probable will conic before
us at the close of this session, and ask a
: re-election to that trust. Mr. v asked
, the gentleman from South Carolina, and
j any other gentleman, if this nutter was
not satisfactoiily cleared up, whether he
would give his vote foi them : I he gen
tleman from South-Carolina professed to
be the fiiendof the Printers, and yet his
course would be such as to prevent any
man from conscientiously giving them a
vote for re election. Mr. A. said he should
he extremely reluctant to suppose Messrs.
(des 8c Seaton really culpable, us was
imputed to them; but, when a charge to
lliid effect was formally made against
therrt, standing on the high credit of one
of the members of this House, what could
he do ? It was due to the parties to the
gravity of the charge to the respectable
source frem whence i. nsw emanates, be
ing one of the members of this House,
that ii n inquiry should take place.
Mr. Mitch ti.L, of S. C. said he had
considered this charge merely as brought
by an editor of a newspaper against Gales
h Seaton, when he opposed the appoint
ment of a committee on the subject. He
did not suppose it was supported by any
member of this Heuse. So long as it
rested merely on the assertion, perhaps
unfounded assertion, of a newspaper, he
was opposed to the examination of it
Hut he had too much respect for the mem
bers of this House, to resist an inquiry
into a charge supported by the authority
of anv one of them ; and therefore with
diew his opposition to the proposed ref
erence. Mr. Ingham called for the reading of
the document referred lo in debate, to
shew the effort of the .omission of. the
part of it wh'uh had not been printed-
Mr. Wright repeated that the charge
now presented was one of an aggravated
character against the servants of this
House, and it was due to them and to the
House thai it should be inquired ii to.
Mr. Dwigiit exprcsed the same senti
merit in justification and support of his
Some conversation look place as to the
