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. Bussy, of louisiana, offered a
resolution that a committee of one t.e
ttppointedon the Mississippi and its
tributaries, and five on each of the
other subjects, and the Kaotatfoa w as
adopted, and the folio lug gentlemen
