Or. Hillyer. I propose to Amend that Reso Lution so As to provide that the members be required before the drawing commences to retire from their seats. The speaker. The chair supposes that under the Resolution As it stands he has authority to require members to vacate their seats. Such has been the practice heretofore. Or. Stanton of Tennessee. I have received a message from colleague or. Chorcie Well who passed through this City a few Days ago and went to the City of new York. I am informed by that message that he is quite sick and has been unable to get Here this morning As he intended. He therefore requests that one of his colleagues May be permitted to select n seat for him. Or. Bocock. Is he in the City or. Stanton. He was in the City but went to new York with the expectation of re turning by this morning which of course he could have done and would have done had he not been taken sick. 1 conceive that it is the same As if he had been taken sick in this City but i simply desire to submit his request to the House and i shall be satisfied with the decision of the House whatever it May be. The speaker. The chair supposes that the gentleman from Tennessee submits his motion As an amendment to the Resolution of the gentle Man from Pennsylvania or. Florence or. Stanton. Yes sir. Or. Dickinson. I Hope the amendment of the gentleman from Tennessee will prevail and i wish to make a similar motion in behalf of one of colleagues or. Edam do who came on with to the Astor House new York. On Friday morning he sent for to come to his room where 1 found him confined to his bed by sick Ness. He requested Meta ask the House to allow a seat to be drawn for him a he has been detained on the Way to Washington by sickness. I Hope that request will be granted and also the the gentleman from Tennessee on be oath of big colleague. Or. Wheeler. 1 Hope that a colleague of mine or. Mcches who is detained in Phila Delphia by illness will also be allowed to have a seat selected for him. Or. Stephens of Georgia. I wish to say that i have never yet known permission Given to draw by proxy for any person out of the City Al though indisposed. It has been usual to allow friends to draw for those detained in the City by sickness but never for those absent from the cloy 1 Hope that the usual Rule will be adhered to. If there be any member unwell in the City he will be allowed under the usual Rule to have a seat drawn for him by a Friend. The speaker. The motion of the gentle Man from new York or. Wheeler will not be in order until the amendment to the amendment first proposed by the gentleman from Tennessee or. Is disposed of. After that it will then be acted upon in its order. Or. Cullom. I insist upon a strict adherence to what has been the usual practice of the if it be departed from i give notice that 1 shall ask permission to draw for colleague or.

Stanton of Tennessee. I withdraw the motion i made. The question was then taken upon the Resolution is originally introduced and it was agreed to. The speaker. The chair in execution of the order made by the adoption of the Resolution directs that each member shall retire outside of the bar of the House. The officers of the House will see that All remain outside of the bar until their names shall have been called then they shall be admitted inside to choose their seats. A message was Here received from the Senate by the hands of Asbury Dickins esq., their Secre tary informing the House that they had Assem bled that the Hon. Lewis Cass of Michigan had been chosen president of the Senate pro Tern pore for this Day and that they were ready to proceed to business. A message was also received from the Senate by the hands of or. Maci Ien their chief clerk a forming the House Tyml they Hod appointed a committee to join such committee As May be appointed by the House to Wail upon the president to inform him that a quorum of the Senate had assembled and were ready to receive any communication he might be pleased to make and that messes. Dodge of Iowa Dawsom of Georgia and Touchy of Connecticut constituted such committee on the part of the Senate. The House then proceeded in the execution of the order for Cho Sig seats. The members re tired without the bar and when their names were severally drawn selected their seats. The process was thus completed. The speaker. Near the close of ses Sion a veto message from the president of the United states was received by the House. There being no quorum present the message was not read. under the Constitution the first business in order is the consideration of the president s veto message. If it is the pleasure of the House the message will be read or. Clingman. U a competent i take it o postpone the subject until to Morrow or some other future any and i Hope there will be no objection to such postponement. I make the motion int its further consideration be postponed until to Morrow. The speaker. If there be no objection the consideration will be postponed until that time by unanimous consent. Or. Campbell. Will it be in order to move hat us consideration be postponed until the first bionday in december next the speaker. The More regular Mode of proceeding would be to read the message first. It will then be for the House to dispose of the mat Ter As they May think proper. Or. Went North of Illinois. I wish to Unke an inquiry. Will not the rending of the message require action on the Bill to follow it the Bill has been returned to the House and the 3onmilution requires that the message being read he House shall proceed to act upon the veto Bill think the better Way would be to pass the whole matter by informally until to Morrow or some other Day and then take the subject up and Dis pose of it. The speaker. It will be competent for the House by n vote to postpone the consideration of the Bill upon which the vote is founded. But the More regular Way would be to have the veto Ness Aga read is it has never yet been read to the a House. Or. Wentworti1, of Illinois. It is the same message that was read a the close of last session. The speaker. It was not read then. Or. Wentworth. It certainly was read from the speaker s desk although there was no quorum present at the time. The speaker. The gentleman is mistaken As the message hns never been read from the desk. Or. Went North. Then i certainly will make no objection to its being read. The message of the last session which has heretofore been published in All the papers upon the Bill making appropriations for the improve ment of harbours and Rivers was then read by the Lerk. Or. Wentworth. I move that the Mes Sage be referred to the committee on Commerce and be printed. Or. Clingman. I would inquire whether the motion to postpone the further consideration of this subject does not take precedence of the motion made by the gentleman from Illinois the speaker. The pending question is shall the Bill puss the president s objection to the same notwithstanding " a motion is made that the consideration of the Bill be postponed until wednesday next and the chair thinks it will take precedence of the motion made by the gentleman from Illinois or. Wentworth.1 or. Went Ortii. If it is a question of precedence merely i have nothing to say. The question was then taken on or. Cling Man s motion and it was decided in the affirm 120, noes not counted. Or. Wentworth. I now move that the message be referred to the committee on com Merce and that it be printed. The speaker. The consideration of the matter hns already been postponed until wednes Day and a motion to refer it is not in order. Or. Went North. I want the message printed so that we May have it before us when we come to act upon it. The speaker. It Niscora relent for the House to order the message to be printed but the consideration of it having been postponed you not Only cannot consider the passage of the Bill but cannot move to refer it. Or. Wentworth. Then i simply move that the message be printed. Or. Wheeler. I object. Or. Houston. Is it not competent for the gentleman from Illinois to move that the message be printed the speaker. The chair thinks it is in order. Or. Wentworth. I make that motion and i demand the previous question upon it. The previous question received a second and the main question was ordered to be now put. The question was then taken upon the motion of or. Wentworth and it was agreed to. Or. Houston. I now move that ten thou Sand extra copies be printed. Cries of or. H. I make the motion in order that it May go to the committee on printing under the Rule. The speaker. The motion will go As a matter of course to the committee on printing and it is so ordered.
