Tii knor ol Iowa. The President was conducted to the Chair, and made a speech of conside rable length lrom h lan.pniei men hp had oreliarod lur the ixviision. Mr. Howell, from the Committee on tiie Order of liusines-, i.n - nte.la niajurity report, and explained the realms which iuducexi a ilivis- Iin of sentiment in the Com mittee. He reorted the following subiects to lie a;ieu upon, rirsi, The MissLssiooi river and its tribu taries; Second, Foreign Commerce; Third, Immigration, and Fourth, Postal TVliirninli. The Committee further recommended that standing committees te appointed on each of the foreg"111? suhjivts, find tnat xne first committee shall consist of one from ch State, and eachol the other committees of five members. The report ol the minority was then read. It proposes that the Con vention shall consider all matters connected with the commerce and travel of the Mississippi and its tribu taries, or which may in any way hinder the development of the coun try drained by its waters, and that the Convention ought not to le con fined to the four subjects mentioned in the majority report, and that one sub ject includisl in that report (the Postal Telegraph ), has no special application to the Mississippi river or valley, while other subjects of great imjwrt tmee to that s-ction are excluded. The Committee sJso think it would be un just and unuise to refer all rexolu tions to those committees without debate. They also believe that no standing comniittee should le apjoiut ed, but that all juestions should le cwnsidered i: open convention unless special committees are appointed. The tuiuority therefore recommend the following order of business: First, the Mississippi river and its tributarias; atfond. Foreign Com merce; third, Immigration, and then that the Convention shall then be open to cousider Other matters perti nent to those subjects. 2&r. Flnklenberg, who mude thi report, said that since the committee had prepared this report, by a change inthevwa- of the members, it had tiecome the majority report. After an hour's discussion, which took a wide range, the minority re port was adopted. Mr. James, of Tennessee, offered a resolution that the rate of eaca State ahouid lie represented in accordance ' with its Repre-cnUitives in Con- fress, and said if it was not adopted owa and Missouri would swallow up ull the other States. (ten.
