was laid on the table, at the suggestion
of tbe mover. Several other resolutions
were taken up and adopted. Tbe Hotue
went into Committee of the whole, on
the bill for the relief of D'Auterive, in
which was involved the question, whether
compensation should be made for a slave
Mr. P. V. Bjrbour addressed the House
at lenght. He examined the bearing
which the constitution had on the ques
tion, and deduced from it that the Gov
eromeutpossested two powers over prop
erty, whichhe denominated the ordinary
and extraordinary powersT """The0rsf
operated by luxation, end the other only
in cases of great emergency and public
gcr, , rut In Ins JotteayctCjrripejL.
sation was to be made. He illustrated
the propriety of paying for the slave, by
stating e variety of cases, both on legal
and equitable 'grounds. He replied to
several argumentalwbicb had been ad
vanced by Mr. Siorrs, and other gentle
men.' He waa followed r. Mr Arrhi-r.
of-Va he 'same lideherihowed
that, throughout the debaievtha question
whether slavea were property -or not !"
had not been raised at all. This, he
showed, in weder to allajr excitements that
might grow out ot the late discussions.
He then went into n argumerit ori the
power possessed by the government over
property, and showed that tlavet could
bo imfirtned in cases of great necessity,
but could not be cnfUted. He wat in fa

On the motion of Mr. Sloan, the House
went into the comideratioo of the resolu
Ion, calling for Information relative to
the ' six nulitia men." Mr. Sloan modi
(led his reaolutioo by taking a portion of
wru.J-cino ameodounts and. jreiain.:
in a por.ion of his own. This modifica
tion, as we undersisnd It, called for all
the orders from the War Department, and
other documents relative to the Court
Martial, but excluding the opinions of the
Secretary ot War. Mr. Buchanan moved
an amendment, that a call he made (or a
copy of the correspondence between Gen.
Jackson and Governor Rlounu during
the late war. Mr. WickliSe proposed
another amendment, (which waa a renew
al of his former motion,) but was opposed
to tbe amendment of Mr Buchanan? be
cause it bad no connection with the ob
ject: of inquiry, He wanted tbe doca
mcntt, and nothing bat the documents.
Mr. Moore, of Kentucky, then iddretted
the House- lie was in favor of Mr
Wickliffc't amendment. . Mr, Culpepper,
of X. C, moved to lay tho whole on the

would not shrink from any itivestl;atbn.
Mr. Spragae, of Maine, then addressed
the House, and was followed by Mr. Ran
dolph, who wat against the whole subject
of inquiry. He msde a speech of some
length against the whole course of con
duct of those gentlemen who pressed for
ward inquiries tending to exasperate tht
feelings of the two great political parties
which divided the country. He conce
ded by moving that the resolution and
amendments be laid on the table, which
waa decided in the negative. Mr. Weamt
then rose, and addretsed the House in a
few words. Mr. Wright, of Ohio, rose
and addressed the House against Mr.
Wickliffe't amendment- He "waa "tot'
towed by Mr. Floyd, c4-Va wh p
sed an amendment relative to two sol
diers shot at Norfolk. This amendment,
the Speaker said, was out of order Af
ter this, it was debatedbyMessrirWlclH

made a motion to embrace the two let
ten of tbe Secretary of War, to Governor
Blount, which was accepted by Mr.
Sloan, and the resolution waa. then ad
opted. The House then adjourned.
A short debate sprung up on the prin
ting of report Xromjthe
Public Lands. The question waa on the
number - of - eopiea to be printed. JMr..
Moore of Alabama, proposed 1000 copies,
because the subject -wai very .important,
being- no lest than a potflic land system
for the United: States. "Mr-- Bassett op
posed extravagance in printing.' Mr.

prevailed. nnen rejonmons werepf-
