Mr Nilcs renewed the inquiry as to thu examin ation of credentials, particularly with refercneb to the returned delegate Irom Guildhall. ' Mr Aiken remarked that il had been several times suggested that tho return from Guildhall was .int according to the prescribed form.

Agreed lo, and Messrs Aiken, Mcach and Jenncss were appointed the committee. On motion of Mr Tracy iho convention went into committee of the whole,' on tho resolution ol Mr Collamcr, Mr White in the chair. Tho qunntiun recurred, will the comniit'tcco re commend tho adoption or the resolution ? When the discussion wus conlinucd by .Messrs. Dilling ham and Foote, in favor of the motion, when, Mr Hunt moved that tl.o (.uminittcc rise, report progress and aik leave to sit again. Mr Blodgetl expressed a hope that the commit tee would now come to the quentiuii, without sit ting ogrn. Mr Hunt suggested that the question whether the committee should sit again, whs a question for thu convention, not for the ciuumittee. The motion wax agreed lo, the committee re ported and hail leave to sit again. Mr Hunt introduced a ro-oluliun ref-rring tho credentials of nil the delegates to the cuinmlttce oi Flections, H:ieed IC. AJj. FniDAY, Jan. 8, Mr Whitnoy suggested Iho propriety of amend ing the resolution of .Mr Collamcr, so as to extend it In the additional url'cles, bearing relationship In tho proposition fur u Sonato. The lO'h Sedion was par'iculirly impolUiit, and il occurred in luiu thai all the articles ujijier'.ainiug to thn same sub jcci, might bo acted upon at once. Perhaps, the mover of tho rcolution would asciit to an amend ment including these additional articles. Mr Collamcr observed that the Council of Cen sors had presented tbn amendments in different as pects, Il had been supposed that one iuoividuul wonld prefer one couric, and ono'.her n difi'ciont courrc, to produce the samo result; in regard to the election of a Senate, snmo might prefer a pro vision requiring a new districting uf the state, or something of that kind, and hence the 17th article was presented. All these amendments wero so shaped that one might be adopted without the other, or all might be adupted. Ilo was, then, but follow ing out iho uf.'fotion of tho Council of Censors whon ho introduced the resolution, and presented the single, abstract question. Will you liavo a Senate? The 10lh and 17th artlclos pro viding fur districts, presented a question entirely different from this, and ihould not bo mingled with it j it should not lie considered, Until the first shall have been finally eottled. In any event, ho con tidcrod that ati amcndincut of the resolution could not now be made the resolution was already in committee, and out of tho control of the conven tion for time. Mr Whitney said that he had made the sugges tion that tho relationship of tho artiulos might be uodflrsteod. He was not tenacious in proving the amoniiiiieiit. Mr Niles said he wsi opposed to the common custom in our logislaturas of permitting membcra lo hold toats until the heel of the session, wheth er they wore intitled to beats or not ; he would therefore be glad to know whether tho committee of Flections were prepared to report on the mat ter rwfsrred to thsio. Mr Aiken, chairman of tin committee, replied that the committee had proceeded in part with an examination of the credential of members, in the order of the roll of the convention. So far as they had gone, l was ascertained there wcrejJly j nisecate wbveh the eomuutt would bo obliged j to report, in most caic the informality was. easi - y understood and accounted for there wero oth - J , however, which required no locorwiderable isato. atrclch of tho imagination to reconcile with the prccrilcd form.
