Mr. Barrin'ger introduced a bill to incorporate the
Swift Island Gold Mining Company. Goes on the
calendar and made special order for Saturday next
Mr. Avcra moved a reconsideration of the vote,
by which the bill for the relief of indigent families
of the deceased and sick and wounded soldiers, was
passed on yesterday.
Mr. Worth said that be hoped that the motion to
reconsider would prevail. He heartily approved of
the object the bill bad in view, but he thought that
it was impracticable to carry it out as it was passed.
He could see no manner for the Treasurer to be in
formed how many indigent families, the number pf
each fatuity, 4c., hit, there were in each county.
He-would have no means of knowing these facts,
aod, under the bill, could not pay out the amount
appropriated. Tf the amount had to be distributed
in accordance with the provisions of the bill'as it
stood before the araerduient of the gentleman from
Sdgecombe, Mr. Cobb, there would be no difficulty
attending the matter. If the House thought proper
to adhere to that amendment, same legislation would
be necessary to enable the Treasurer to ascertain the
. number tf indigent families and the number of the
members of each in the counties of the State.
.Mr. Spruill called for the ayes and nays. The
call being sustained bj the. House, the question was
" put and the vote reconsidered. -
Mr. A Vera moved to strike out the amendment
offered to the bill by Mr. Cobb on' yesterday, and
that the bill should retain its original form.
Mr. Cobb said that he thought this matter was
settled by the action of the House on yesterday.
He could not see'the great difficulties apprehended
by the gentleman from Randolph (Mr. Worth.)
The county courts had adopted quite a convenient
mode of ascertaining the indigent families within
their limits. He thought that his proposition was
a just and equal one. If Guilford and Randolph
counties had more indigent families to be supplied
than his county, under this provision they would
get a larger portion of the fund, and so it would
hold throaghoutthe Sute. It was for this reason,
as well as others, he desired his amendment It
certainly was not the purpose to include the entire
needy of the State ; they were provided for by each
countyrbot was intended for the indigent families
of the soldiers in the service and the families of
those that had died and been killed in battle. He
desired that the needy, wherever , in the greatest
number, should bo the recipients of the largest
Mr. Worth said that his object was merely to
have the bill in such form as to render its opera
tions practicable He was in favor of i$, and hoped
it would pass, but could not see bow it could be
carrid out without the amendment
Mr. Shepherd said that there seemed to be great
unanimity oft the part of the House that some bill of.
the kind should be passed, and as there were several
propositions before the body all having pretty much
the same object in view, he moved to send a message
to the Senate proponing to raise a joint select com
mittee to whom all the bills and resolutions on this
su'jjeet should be referred, which' motion was then
agreed to. v."- . . ' .

Mr. Fowle introduced a resolution authorizing the
' Governor to protect tho citizens of this State from
arrest by Confederate officers, on suspicion of being
conscripts, Ac, - - - . - -
,.s Mr. Fowle moved to.suspeod tbe rulesto pot the
resolution upon its several readings.
' Mr. Person said he hoped that the motion would
not prevail'-. He thought the matter. of great im
' portance, and he would like to bare time to examine
it that he might give an intelligent vote upon it,
when called upon to do so.-
Mr. Fowle said he was surprised to bear the gen
i tleman from New Hanover (Mr. Person) ask for
, further time ; several days had elapsed since the res
olution of inquiry, for information from tbe Gov
ernor, on this subject had passed and there had
been published in the papers of this city an order,
'(Which he "read) for several days, past under
.which these arrests were made. Confederate 'of
ficers were having citizens arrested daily, upon mere
suspicion that they were conscripts, and had even
gone so far as to arrest a member of the House;
an officer in the State" department bad also been
arrested He thought the Legislature should act
promptly, SBd give the Governor the authority to
have a stop put to it
Mr. Person said that the gentleman from Wake,
Mr. Fowle, might think it singular that be had not
seen the order, but it was nevertheless true ; it bad
escaped his attention; he had never read it, or" knew
that such ' an order was in' existence, until read by
the gentlemen; he had been engaged for several
days past, morning, afternoon, and night, in tbe
discharge of bis duties on committees, anil had there-
fore not given the subject sufficient thought to vote
at this time intelligently upon it . time lor this was
all ho asked
Mr. Waddell said that he hoped the House would
suspend tbe rules snd pass the resolution. The of
ficers alluded to were transcending the rules of pro
priety. They bad gone bo far as to arrest one of
his colleagues. It was a gross wrong and was an
indictable offence, but for the military authority
under which it was done.
. The hour having arrived for the consideration of
the special order, on Mr. Mann's motion the same
was postponed 15 minutes.
Mr. Alford said that he was present when the gen
tleman from Chatham (Mr Ueaden) was arrested and
that be knew that others parties from his' neighbor
hood bad been arrested also, that were not liable as
concripts; one of them a young man that had been
in the service apd discharged on account of - bad
health. He thought our people ought to be pro
tected against such unwarranted arrests. These men
say that under the orders given them they will ar
rest every member of the Legislature i in. their
opinion they are not beyond the age for conscripts
and when asked to go with the parties arrested to
some point where they can bo convinced that the
person in custody is not a proper subject reply, that
it is no part of their business to bv going about in
that way. He hoped the resolutions would pass. '
Mr. llcadcn madeastatemcntconcerning the man
ner of his arrest
Mr. Shober made a statement relative to tbe ar
rest of a citizen of his county.
The proposition was further discussed by Messrs.
Fowle and Person, when the question was put and
the rules were suspended
Mr. Amis offered a resolution as a substitute for
Mr. Fowle's. . ' (
Upon this quite an animated and protracted dis
cussion ensued participated in by Messrs. Amis,
Fowle, Shepherd and Worth, which resulted in
having the whole matter referred to a select com
mittee of five, composed of Messrs. Shepherd Worth,
McAden, Person and Waddell to consider and re
port as soon as practicable.
Mr. Worth tendered hjs resignation as a member
of the House, to take effect on the 22d Doc. next,
and a writ of election was ordered to take place on
24th to fill the vacancy.
On motion of Mr. Shepherd, a bill to authorize

Amis's substitute for same Ac, had been referred,
reported a resolution as a substitute for the wholo.
Again an animated discussion sprung up, and the
substitute was finally voted down.
Mr. Sheperd then moved to amend by substitut

was finally voted down.

which wire accepted by Mr. Fowlo, and the resolu

posed Upon him." He further remarked that while

they loved tbe 'tattered and abused and wars
worn banner of North-Carolina better. He" was
'a ware that the question'of these arrests was one 'of
a most delicate nature, and regretted exceedingly
thai anything of tbe kind brf .-occurred but was
sore that the path of duty was plainly marked out
and that if. ire do no more than tfieOecessity of the
ease requires, there can be do danger of a collision
between the Stale and Confederate' antHOrities.'
