that the House upon other grounds had
undoubtedly the right to reject petitions

both.in the Common Law of Great Britain
and in Parliamentary examples which had
sprung up on the oecasi n-of presentation,
it was well known tha 6titions had been
burnt. by the common hanIman upon
presentation, and this not in consequence
of Royal infuence, but by the deliberate
action of the House of Commons itself.
Mr. Legare was interrupted by the
Speaker, ancl called to orler for referring.
The members of the House cried, -go
on," "go on," ' go on."
Mr. L. proceeded, and in the course of
his remarks, aaif that if the object of these

With the exceptiont of the Bill pioviding

between John Q. Adams in behalf of the
Ma'sachusetts Femiale Benevolent Socie

far occupied the wis,lom of the House.
The first of these subjects was well settled,
- the second was little more that a resolu

why the Delegation from Pennsylvania

its way into our own pockets, to compensate us,
for our untiring exertions to please. 'Tis true.

The late Legislature.-'I he Legislature of S.
