Mr. Randolph said that al houj;h he had a
"reair r desire io nct on tliis bill th m to i-peak on
?L yet l:e c'uhl not f.rc;o the duiv he fe!t in
cumhent ujHin him to show that his State had
decided in favor of tlii3 measnre. It wai true
that other and important me.isures had been
bmusht before the people of New Jersyy a: tlie
late elfction this, s well a the viojaiiun of lier
'broad seal." A grneral bill of indiclment had
lieen found against the late Administration, and
ihe pcop'e had brouiihl in a verdici of gnilty on
all thecountie?, end had rendered it without any
recommendation of mrrey.
Mr. Winthrjp said tlmt he dia not miena to
tho District of Columbia, ho regarded it aa a
fiscal agent establishcd for the general purposc
of tho GovcrntHent to act throughout thc Un
ion ; and the qucstion of its location w'as of
minor importance. But frith all his convic
tions regarding the cxistence ,of this powcr, hc
contendcd that there might eastly aiise cir
cumstances under which the cxertion of that
powcr would be inexpcdient. In rcfercnce to
the amendmcnt of Mr Bayard, he construed it
as a proposition to force on the Statcs, the very
agcncics contcmplated by thc original bill, and
liable to .hc samc and Ihc only objection, that
it urged thc power of the Govcrnment beyond
thc limits of expediency. He should vote for
the amendmcnt of thc gentleman from Vir
ginia, although he protested, in doing so, a
gainst being considered as surrendcring any
portion of thc power which is indispcnsibly re
sidcnt in congrcss.
Mr Huntington thcn rosc and designated
the amendmcnt of thc gentleman from Virgin
ia as onc cxciting great interest, and as layiug
the axc to thc root of onc of the main features
of the bill. Thc argument had assumcd the
old fashioncd form and charactcr. Thc de
sign of thc clausc in thc original chartcr was
to givc the bank powcrs co-extensivc with the
dutics requircd of it. Thc amendmcnt of the
Senator lays thc powers of the general govern
ment at tho feet of the Statcs. Hc would
vote against the amendmcnt. Thc amcnd
ment had been sustained on ths ground that

sidcr the final vote which motion was put
down without a division.
The Fiscal Bank bill rcccivcd tho coup' de
gra:e from its friends, and is now rcady for
the battenng rams of the opposition. Slrange
to say the amendmcnt of Mr. Rivcs, on which
such a world of cloquence has been lavishcd
about State rights and strict construction, rc
ceivcd only ten votes. The Opposition, with
the exception of Mr Walker, voted against it
toa man, and hcncc thc majority was so tri
umphant that Mr Clay inust have been highly
gratificd at the result. Thc amendment was
cvidently intcndcd to catch thc minority, but
it failcd most signally. Mr Bayard's amend
mcnt found evcn lcss favor, having receivcd
but 9 votes. Thc vote on the amendment to
the amendmcnt stood, Ycas Mcssrs. Archcr,
Bayard, Evans, Graham, Hcndcrson, More

On 3Ir Rives' proposition tho vote was,
ycas Messrs. Barrow,Batcs, Choate, Merrick,
Phclps, Prentiss, Preston, Kivcs, Walker, Wil
liams 10, Nays 38. So that thc bill if it
pass, will go as it camc from thc hands of thc
Committce, or at least not csscntially varied.
Mr White of Ind., made a spiritcd speech
against thc amendmcnt of Mr Rivcs. He rc-
pudiated the idea of going ovcr to any cliquc
thc uill would not re-
ceivc tho sanction of thc Presidcnt. "What
(said Mr. W.) is it to be apprchendcd that an
officcr clccted by a great and triumphant ma

sertion ot thc pow
lutc exercise. He resisted the idea
forbearance of the right to exercise a powcr
could bc construed into an abandonmcnt of
that power. The first object in establishing a
bank was tonid the financial operations, and
then to rcgulate the currency. In Vermont
thcrc was sufiicient banking currency, a good
currency, and h would not undcrtake to say
whcthcr.his state should have a branch or not.
He regarded it as a qucstion of doubtful expe-
diency. It would be for the legislaturc to
of any bill which might be referred fo that
committee, after acting, without dcbate, upon
all atncndments that might be oflfered. '
This proportion Icd to many intricatc qucs
tions of order, and to variouse motions, all
tending to evadc direct action on the Report
of thc comtnittee, and with which it is useless
for me to troublc you. Tho conelusion of the
whole matter was, that the Report was adopt-
