atid the resolution was then passed.
Mr. Walker submitted the following res
olutions whichrwere agreed to.
-Resolved, That the Select Committee,
to whom was referred the questien of e
porting to the Sedate on the subject of a
fiscal a ent for the Government of the
nited States be directed to inquire into the
expediency of vesting the control of said
agency in a board of six directors, located
* at the city of Washington, to be chosen by
a joint vote of both Houses of Congress,
two of said directors to be elected at each
successive vote, each member being per
mitted to vote only on each occasion for
one director, so as to prevent said board be
* ing placed under the control of the Execu
tive or of any part.
Resolved, That said committee be also
instructed to inquire into the expediency
* of tendering to the States branches of said
fiscal agency, on the condition precedent
that said Statesh have first entered into an
agreement with each other for the gradual
and prospective limitation or abandonment
Resolted, That said committee be also
-instructed to inquire into the expediency of
confining said agency to the use of gold and
silver, and of bis receivable of the Gov

nominationS, excluding all the paper of the
Statebanks, and so as to retain an ade
quate supply and circulation of gold as well
as silver at all times in the United States.

of applying, prospectively the bankrupt
power of this Government to the State

On motion of Mr. Clay, of Kentucky,

Kr. Sevierrieplied by asking why the Sec
retary had been in such haste to hold up to
public odium a large body of men, when he
was not prepared to .specify his charges or
to name the individuals. There had been
but two emigrating agents concerned in.the
isbursements alluded to-Captains Ste

things did or did not exist, but he main
tained his right to call for information on
the subject. If there is an investigation

Mr. Morehead still persisted in his op
position, and the resolution was laid on the

Mr. Benton followed, and commenced
his speech by warning gentlemen of the
danger of taking sides against our country
in a controversy with a foreign power. He
denied that the act for which McLeod was
in custody was an act of war. A number
of Englishmen in Cpnada, of their own
voluntary uet, without the knowledge of
the colonial authorities, had banded to
ethr, crossed the Niagara, attacked an
narmed vessel and sleeping men whoc
were within ihe jurisdiction of one of the
Sovereigu States of this Union. That it
was a mere simple act of robbery, arson
and murder, nnd did not come within the
pale of the laws ofrnations, but wvas subject
to the municipal laws ofthe State in which
the act was perpetrated. He denounced
the instructions to Mr. Crittendon ns illegal
and disgracef ul to the country ; illegal as
be had no right io comimand him to go intc
a State sovereignty, and oppose the course

they were given in the face of a threat

ability of the letter of Mr. Webster, which
was foriy days in preparation,'but denied
that it was an answer to the letter of Mr.
Fox: the instructions to Mr. Crittenden
were the answer; the letter was an argu
ment "for Buncombe,"' to justify and glaze
over by brave words the instructions, and
in proof of this, he said that Mr. Fox had
never taken the least notice of it. Hie con
