Enq. of Nov. 16.
The Senate met and was duly organized
the appointed lime, Monday, Dec. 2.
The J-'ouse met an obstacle at the outset.
National Intelligencer says :
Although the roll was not called through, it was
ascertained that every member of the House, save
one, was present; a thing without example, and
which is possible will everreniain without a paral
lel. General anticipation was realized in finding the
course pursued in calling the representation from
New Jersey to be a stumbling-block in the way
.... of the organization of the House. The Clerk de
clining to call any more than one of the six Rep
resentatives having the Governor's certificate of
election, on the ground that the seats of the other
membersi, were disputed, a debate arose upon the
matter, which continued until the approach of
night put a stop to it for the day," tho' it seemed to
all appearance tin be quite as far from an end when
night came as it was when it began.
4flrfaource of gratification to be able to state
tfayHiitere was no evidence, either in or out of the
House, of any remarkable excitement on this ques
tion. The following extracts show the course of the
debate :
The Clerk,- Mr. Garland, at 12 o'clock, called
the House to order. He said that " if it were the
pleasure of the House he would read the names
of the Members of the Twenty-Sixth Congress
from a list he had prepared for the occasion."
There was a moment's pause, and no objection be
ing made the Clerk proceeded to read the names
from the'written list before him, beginning with
the Maine delegation.
When the State of New Jersey was named,
the Clerk read the name of Mr. Randoph. He
then said that there were five contested seats in
the New Jersey delegation, which, if it was the
pleasure of the House, he would pass over, leav
ing the subject to the future action of the House.
The first named of the Pennsylvania delegation
was then read, when the Clerk was interrupted by
Mr. Maxwell, one of the New Jeisey delegation.
Mr. Maxwell called for the reading of the cer
tificate of election of the five Members. Gov.
Pennington's certificate, announcing the election
of the six Members, Messrs. Aycrigg, Maxwell,
Ilalstead, Stratton, Yorke, and Randolph, was
then read. A debate made up of suggestions
merely sprang up.
Mr. Mercer of Va. called for the reading of the
law of New Jersey.
Mr. Rives, of Va. called for the reading of the
names of the remaining members for the purpose
of forming a quorum.
Mr. Hoffman objected to the proposition. He
addressed the Clerk and asked him what right he
had to call any member but as he had evidence of
his election through a eertilicata laid upon the ta
ble. That was the only evidence he could have
oi an election ; and you sir, said Mr. Hoffman,
addressing the Clerk, have no more right to pass
over the names of the New Jersey members than
you have to pass over my name. Mr. Hoffman
considered it an assumption ot power on the part
of the Clerk to go behind the return ol the Gov
emorin the form of the certificate of election
The evidence of the election of the several mem
bers was equally good.
Mr. Ilalstead, one of the New Jersey delega
tion, followed Mr. Hoffman. He said, " I demand
as a sovreign member of the State of New Jersey,
that my ryime be called. I demand it in virtue
of my election, proved by the broad seal of the
state ol New Jersey. 1 deny that the mere claim
of the opposing members, a claim set up against
precedent-against parliamentary usage against
justice shall be so considered as to pass by the
names of the members elect."
"" Mr. Tiliinghast said that upon the evidence of
the certificate ol the Governor of New Jersey the
Clerk had caused the name of Mr. Randolph to
be read, and yet upon the same evidence he had
refused the evidence of the election of the remain
ing five members. .The Clerk, Mr. T. contended,
had no right to elo this. The ceritficatcs proved
alike and equally the election of nil the members.
MiuJohnson, of Maryland, apealed to the
iers. He denied the power of the Clerk to

The debate continued on Tuesday.

he names of the regular certified members
Jersey", and the Clerk had taken upon him-
to interrupt the proceedings of the House. He
d not listen to an argument in lavour oi sucn
a course. '
Mr. Wise thought it was due to -the House
and to the country, and to the Clerk himself,
that he fshould make a statement of his reasons
for abandoning a duty which law and usage im
pose upon him. lie hoped all would consent
tint the Clerk should make the statement.
"r mm J
Mr. White, of Ky.. entered his solemn protest
against the proposiiion. The Clerk was not res
ponsiblo to the House nor to the country, and
to what purpose was lie to make an. argument to
this body?
Mr. Briggs, of Mass., said a few words in sup
port of rhe request of the Clerk, to make his state
ment of the grounds on which he had acted. He
thought it was due to him, as he was placed in a
delicate and responsible situation.
Mr. White reiterated his objections to any state
ment from the clerk. He protested against the
course of the clerk in depriving gentlemen who
were duly commissioned, of the advantage of those
commissions : and lie did not wish to hear from
him an argument on the sublect. lie could, if
he pleased, address the public or the House, in
the newspapers.
Mr. Lushing thought the circumstances demand
ed an explanation from the clerk ; and he wished
to hear it. We had a right to know on what
grounds, we, the representatives of the stules, are
obstructed in our proceedings, by that gentleman.
ivir. L. desired that the country should know why
it was that, with the law nndevidence before him,
he had not put on his list Mr. Ayerigg and his
associates.-, as well as Mr. Randolph.
Mr. Rhett argued that according to the practice
of the House, whether reasonable or unreasonable,
the clerk had a right to put questions, anu this
body had a right to decide them. He therefore
hoped the clerk would put the question whether
he should make the statement which he wished to
make or not.
Mr. Wise bosoughtthe clerk to review his de
cision, and now to call onefscl or the other of the
New Jersey delegates. If any question were put,
he, for one, should claim that Mr. Halstead and
lis associates be allowed to vote. He would thank
any gentleman to show us how any vote could
be taken here, without a decision of the question,
which of the delegations here are entitled to vote.
Mr. Rhett, in the course of some remarks in re
ply to Mr. Wise, said that, in case of the election
of a Speaker by members who, ns it might after
wards appear, obtained their seats by fraud, or
mistake, he would pledge himself to proceed to a
new election.
The debate was continued, and Mr. Weller, a
new member from Ohio, made an eloquent speech
in support ot the course taken by the clerk.
lhe House adjourned at 4 o clock, without
coming to any conclusion.
As a deep interest is every where felt in refer
ence to the action of Congress on the nuestion of
the rights of the five .members of New Jersey to
their seats, we have taken the following abstract
from the National Intelligencer.
The members elect of the House were called to
order at noon this day by the Hon. John Quincy
Adams.chosen yesterday to be their Chairman, who
directed that the journal of the proceedings of the
tour days gone by, should be read, and it was read
accordingly at the Clerk's table.
Mr. Imelt of South Carolina, rose and observ
ed that it was his intention to move that the mo
tion of the gentleman from Virginia, (Mr. Wise's,
originally Mr. Grave's,) which the Chairman
had announced as the motion pending from yes
terday, be laid upon the table: with a view to en
able him to offer the following, which he then
read, viz :
Resolved, That the House will proceed to call
the names of gentlemen whose richts to seats are
not disputed or contested, and after the names of
such members are called, and before a Speaker is
elected, they shall, provided there be a quorum of
such present, then hear and adjudge upon the
elections, returns, and qualification of all claim
ants to the seats contested on this floor.
Mr. Rhett proceeded to support this resolution,
Mr. Biddle, of Pennsylvania, rose to order.
The gentleman's motion was to lay a resolution
on the table, and, by the rules of order which had
yesterday been adopted, was not debatenb!e. The
gentleman ought not to discuss his proposition
thus in advance.
Mr. Rhett replied that he had not yet actually
made his motion to lay on the table, he had only
indicated an intimation to do so. He should make
such a motion before he resumed his seat. But
had he debated or discussed the resolution he
had read to the House ? Had he entered at all
into its merits ? He had not, nor did he intend
to. He entirely agreed with the gentleman from
Pennsylvania that it was wrong for a gentleman
who was going to make a motion which preclu
ded debate, to avail himself of his position to dis
cuss a proposition, when his remarks could not
be replied to. A full opportunity would be affor
ded for the discussion after the motion to lay on
the table-was disposed of.
The Chair staled that . tho position taken by
the gentleman from Pennsylvania, was correct in
principle, and that such ought to be the rule of
order ; but that the practice of the House had
been different, and gentlemen had very frequent
ly been permitted, -to preface a motion to lay on
the table by an argument
Mr. Rhett said he should not add a word more,
but would now move that the resolution offered
yesterday by the gentleman from Virginia, (Mr.
Wise,) be laid upon lhe table, toaflord him an op
portunity to move the resolution which he had
just read.
1 tilers were demanded.
The Chair apponinted Mr. Davies of Penn
sylvania, and Mr. Dromgoole, of Virginia, toad
as tellers.
Mr. Dromgoole observed to the Chair that he
had been appointed to act as one of the tellers,
and was ready to discharge the dutv assigned
him, but desired first to be instructed by the
Chair.how he was to perform it. He understood
there were ten gentlemen claiminsr a rierht to
seats as Representatives from New Jersey, which
of them was he to admit to pass between the tel
lers? He was wholly unwilling lo take the re
sponsibilty upon himself of deciding between the
Mr. Adams replied (if correctly heard by the
reporter, for he spoke in a low tone of voice,) that
tlie Chair conceived the rule to be that such per
sons as possessed commissions in conformity with
the constitution and the laws of New Jersey,
were entitled to vote as members of the House,
and that no others were entitled. This was his
own opinion and he had expressed it with the
more confidence because he had openly asserted
the same opinion yesterday, immediately before
the House had placed him in the station he now
Mr. Dromgoole said he was ignorant who the
gentlemen werewho possessed such commissions;
he had' seen none of the papers of the claimants,
and did not know what they were. Was he to
admit-all who said they had commissions according
to the laws of their state? Mr D. knew no bet
ter how to discharge his duty as teller, than be
fore he inquired of the Chair.
Mr. Adams replied, but, owing to the loud con
versation which now arose throughout the Hall,
the first part of what lie said was inaudible; but
when heard, he was understood to say that it had
been stated by the Clerk that the commissions of
live other gentlemen, whom lie named, were in
the same words of that of Mr. Randolph, whom
he had recognized as a member.
Mr. Vanderpoel took an appeal from the decis
ion of the Chair, which he pronounced an act of
usurpation. Cries ot "Order others oi "uo
on ! go on !"J It was virtually declaring that
the gentlemen from New Jersey should vote in
their own cose, when a rule of order was staring
the Chairman in the face, which declared directly
to the contrary. He appealed from such a decis
Mr. Rhett read to the Chair the rule of order
referred to, which is in tho words following:
" No member shall vote on any question in the
event of which he is immediately and particular
ly interested."
Th'e Chair replied, that the rule did not apply
to the present case, because it was not the Rep
resentatives from New Jersey who were concern
ed; but their constituents and their state. It was
not these individuals' case, it was the case of ilieir
District, i.nd the state of New Jersey.
Mr. W. Thompson of South Carolina, conten
ded that a member had as much right to vole on
this question as on any oilier. W hen a man
brought a regular commission from his State, he
was clothed with all the rights belonging to any
other member of the House, and though Mr. T.
should in such a case, decline voting, yet if these
gentlemen wished to vote, they had a clear and in
disputable right to do so.
Mr. Mercer said that gentleman were confoun
ding two distinct propositions, and treating them
as if they were (hut one. The first proposition
was the appeal taken by the gentlemen Irom INew
York, (Mr. Vanderpoel,) the other was built up
on it, viz whether those who hold regular com
missions from the Governor or New Jersey
should be allowed to vote on that appeal. He
supposed, of course, that all the testimony woul 1
be read, and why it had not been he knew not.
Nobody wanted to shut it out; on the contrary,
he was utterly at a loss to conceive how lhe
question could be acted on without reading H.
Mr. M. was extremely unwilling to have it sup
posed for a moment thai he had meant to exclude
the reading of any documents belonging to the
Mr. Stanly wished to say a few words in re
ply to the gentleman from New York, (Mr. Van
derpoel,) who had already, before he had Veen
three days in the House, been referred to as one
of the leaders of his party. The gentleman had
volunteered here as an advocate of order and de
cency, and had now undertaken to read the gen
tlemen Irom New Jersey a lecture on the shocking
enormity of voting in their own case. The Chair,
however, had very justly decided that to vote as
to their right to the seats they claimed was not to
vole in their own case, but in the case ol their con.
stiluents, whose rights were at stake in this contrO'
versy. The gentleman from New-York was es
pecially indignant at the thought of the violation
of precedent which the decision of the Chair would
sanction. Indeed ! And pray when had this new
born zeal ot his lor precedent arisen in the gentle
man's bosom ? Had not the gentleman been all
along raising his roaring voice against the doctrine
of precedent? Had he not scouted the verv idea
of resorting to such a thing? But now he was
shocked convulsed with horror at lhe thoug
that precedent is to be violated ! The gentleman
had just rcturuaL from an European tour he was
fresh from theourt of Victoria herself, and was
of course well prepared to lecture rude Americans
on the laws of decency, and to instruct the Chair
in the principles ol order, ror one, Mr. S was
quite prepared to trust the course of the gentle
men from New Jersey, to themselves. If they
voted, it would not be in their own cause, but the
cause of their State, their constituents, and the
Constitution of their country. Should they prove
recreant at such a moment, they would be unwor
they-of the Stale which gave them birth a State
whoso soil, as one of themselves had truly said,
had been " drenched to a mire with the best blood
of her children."
Mr. Briggs called for the reading of the Clerk's
minute, stating the decision from which an appeal
was taken, and it was read accordingly.
tie men expressed his hope that gentleme'.i
would not confound the questions before them, but
that they would proceed according to the rules ol
order and right reaspn, and discuss only the ques
tion before th- House. The true question was,
whether men duly commissioned from their Stales
were or were not entitled to vote as her Represen
tatives; that was the question, the only question ;
and Mr. B. again invited the gentleman to walk
up and meet it.
Mr. Granger, of New York, rose in reply to Mr.
Vanderpoel. He said he had hoped, yesterday,
that he might at length congratulute the nation on
the fact that her Representatives were now pre
pared to come up to their work & to soy, distinct
ly and openly, who were, and who were not, to be
permitted to vote here as members of Congress.
He had flattered himself that now, at least, they
had reached a point where no man could hide
himself behind the doubts or the arguments of a
dead Clerk, but that the record of their offiicial
action would be sent forth to an anxious and ex
pectant People.
What were they told ? That gentlemen hold
ing commissions in every respect as their own
were not entitled to a vote in that House to lay a
resolution on the table and why? Because,
behind the present question lay another by
which it must be decided whether a commis
sion under the broad seal of a State of this Con
federacy, and in all respects conformable to the
requirements of her Constitution and laws, was
or was not to be received as entitling the holder of
it to take a seat in the preliminary stage of pro
ceedings which immediately preceded the organi
zation of this body.
Whig National Convention.
This body was organized at Harrisburgh, on
Wednesday of last week, Gov. Barbour, of Vir
ginia, President. Two hundred and fifty-four
members nppenred and took their seats, all the
ates being represented except South Carolina
Georgia, Tennessee nr.d Arkansas. The dele
gates from Vermont, were William Henry ol
Rockingham, A. B. W. Tenney or Newbury,
Charles Paine of North field, Gen. Holiey of Bris
tol, and Judge Briggs of Richmond. The Con
vention, it seems, did not come to a result until
late in the evening of the third day. and then on
ly so far as regarded a candidate for President.

clock, fidgeted a few minutes and adjourned
each tune nwailing a report of their Committee o!
Conference, which that Committee was unable to
make. Meantime, the several Delegations con
tinued balloting at intervals in their several rooms,
and transmitting the result through their several
Committees to the General Committee of Confer
ence. The result was repeatedly no choice.
The bell would ring, the Convention assemble, t ie
gallery fill up with anxious spectators (they are
all Harrison men here) and the ladies would

sad cases. They came to hear eloquence dec

Committee were not ready to report ' Interesting,
truly ! The mere privilege of looking at such a
congregation of (in the main) fusty old gentlemen,
was a poor compensation for the trouble of being
thus called together to be sent away agnin.
At last it became evident that somebody must
give way. The Scott men said to the Clay men.
Make a candidate, or we will. The Clay men
said, Wehavo no second choice. The Scott men
then made theirs not the choice of their feelings,
but their judgment.

several Slates, as given in committee :
