time to it, they must fail to pass the appropriated
hills ; for, if the Senate should begin to-day au?l devote
all the time left of the session to the consideration of the

the reapr nubility of the whole matter with refeieuce to an
extra session of Congress and the |*tnsage of the necessary
I (Ills for the support of the government was not with the
republican senator*, but with the majority.
Mr. liElII said his vote would depend upon the proapoet
of reaching a Vote to night. If they were not likely

, to go on with the appropriation bills.
Mr. MIA DELL said the qtMstlott Whether they could
get a vote to-night or not depended upon hie ntlfrtbcr
who were to s|ieak upon the other side. He Relieved
there were only one or two on Ids side who would desire

to clone the debate, lie would waive that privilege if it
