Tho bill was briefly supported by Mr Robinson, as removing an onerous burden now imposed upon many towns by the obli gation to suppoit this class of paupers thrown upon them in great numbers, by peculiar circumstances, and opposed by Messrs Foster, Vilas, Howe, Cush maii, Burton, Harrington, nnd Kimball, as unduly favoring towns who had violently struggled for the location of lailroads through their borders, and yet w ere unwilling to bear tlio evils incident to their construction, and ns introducing a system which could not bo stilliciontly well guarded to prevent fiand and iinproprr drafts'upou the treasury.

Mr Vilas called up the House resolution assign ing Friday next us tho day of adjournment, and mrned to amend by inserting Thursdsy in tho plnco of Friday. lie remarked that ho wns satisfied tho Senate could completu ITS businojs by Thursday, and he desired that the Houso should tako the re sponsibility of not adjourning atan earlier day than it nronoscd. Jir amiui moved 10 my 1110 resolu tion on tho table; opposed by Messrs. Vilas, Hodg es and Miner, on tho ground that Iho tendency ol tlio udoption ol tho amendment, al tho present time, would bo to expedite the completion of die business of Iho House, nnd thus to hasten tho day of adjournment, thereby relieving some members irom 1110 necessity 01 passing mu Sunbalh on tho road; and supported hy Mesars.Smilh & Bradley ,for the reason that thero was no prosocct of thollouso being ablo Jo adjourn boforo Friday, nnd that U would bo safer to accept and hold on lo tho prop sition already made than to submit tho matter to its reconsideration. Mr Nash also expressed himself in favor ot tho motion, as one ot tho Joint committee that rcc omtneiided tho resolution ho had come to iho con clusion that tho Assembly could not complete its business so as to rise boforo Friday. Yet 10 had somo hopo that they might make such progress ns In illctii'ir Itn n il imi.n..in.,f 'PI. n ...In .. TT...:1 .w J..-....J uit miijuui lllliwil, utl 1 liuiauu. Ulllll that point was settled, ho preferred to have die res olutiun lie. As to tho objection made by some tcnators that a number of (ho members nro too far from, homo to return by Sunday, if tho Assembly ndjourned on Friday, ho remarked that those members drown heavy debenture for their travel, nnd could better allord to spend a sabbath upon tho road, than tho Legislature could to remain till Tuesday merely tor uiuir nccomouauon. Tho motion to lio was lost by a voto of 10 to 17 the amendment was adopted, and tho resolution, lis amended, concurred in. Iteporl. Ry Mr Rurton, fiom the Judiciary com mittcc, against tho bill relating to costs in civil nc lions, providing that tho defendant who pleads bankruptcy in bar of an action shall recover no costs against the plaintiff. Mr Harrington briefly supported tho bill. Ho remarked lhat ho was sat ished that in ninety-nino cases out of a hundred those who took the benefit of tho bankrupt law did so in fraud upon tlio act of Congress, 'liiero was oithcr a wilful concealment of property, or some dishonest want of compliance with tho provisions u, mu obi, umi rcnucren iiiein unuescrvnig recipi ents of its benefits. Tho law had been just long enough in operation to permit knaves to avail diem, solves of it; whilo honest but unfortunate man, who wero reluctant to doprivo their creditors ol llieir dues by such means, and had striven to defer tho evil day as long' as possible, were, by tho naHy repeal of tlio act, shut out from its advantages. He believed (hat ono v ho could rraka nc 11 pica in bar of on holiest debt ougjit not to bo mndo the object of peculiar legislative favor. Inasmuch ns there wns, to say tho least, a strong presumption that his ccrtlficnto was obtained by somo species of fraud or irregularity, tho dofendant, being the solo party benefitted, should pay the costs of its legal Investigation. Mr Smith remarked that it was now discretionary with tho court whether to allow costs or not. And ho had never known an instanco whero tho plain tiff was hot allowed coals, if thero was tlio slight est reason on his part to doubt, tho validity of (ho certificate, lio feared dial the indiscriminate gran ting of costs to to the plaintiff would Incllo ill-disposed creditors to harrnss and oppress their bank rupt debtors. Mr Miner briefly opposed tho bill on tho samo ground; nnd on motion of Mr Vilas, who thought the bill might perhaps havo some merit', it was laid nn Iho tnblo for consideration. Mils intioduced.

Thu bill incorporating tho Hank ot Rrandon was taken up. Mr Hodges proposed a series of ques tions to tho chairman ot thu committco on Hanks, from tho nn3wcrs to which it appeared that while tho amount of the banking capital of the Stalo was $1,270,000, $110,000, in liio banks, was located within miles of Hramluii, nnd that tho lUnk of Whitehall, with a capital of $200,000, wns situated within tho samo distance. It also appeared that llioro wero nbout SHOO.000 moro bank canitnl west than cast of tho mountain, nnd nlso that tho busi ness of Rrandon had ulwavs been well nccommo- dated hy tho banking facilities nt Rutland and nt urwcn, winch places wero but a low miles distant. Many other facts of minor importance wero also elicited from tho chairman of the committee. Mr Hodges then went nn to say that ho would make somo comparative statements, on his own responsi bility, collected from iho report ot the UanK Com missioner. Tho population of Windsor county was about -10,000, nnd it had n bunking capital of $100,000; or Franklin, about 21,000, with 0 capi tal ol $50,000; of Washington, about 2:J,C00, with n capital uf $t'0,000; of Caledonia nbout 21, 000 with n capital of $50,000; of Orange n bout 27,000, with a capital, in two banks, ol' $50, 000 each; whilo tho population of Rutland was only nbout 30,000, nnd yet il already had a banking capital of $250,000 c nly $-10,000 less than that now possessed by seven of die northern counties of the Stale, with threo times tho population In Rutland nnd wilhin thirty miles of it was a banking capital of $520,000, besides tho $200,000 of Iho bank at Whitehall. Mr Hodges remarked that thero was already a rcdntidont circulation in Rutland county, ns lliwo facts would indicate; nnd llut tho consequence of inorea.-ing it, would bo to stimu late the Rinks to seek loreign custom, which would jeopard their safely. Mr Smith supported the bill on tho ground lhat the peculiar location of R nn Ion, nnd its great bus iness exceeded by lhat of only t 10 or ihreo towns in tho Stato justly demanded iho facilities asked for, and such was tho security ol our present pys tcm of bunking, that the bill could pass without subjecting tho public to tho least detriment or dan ger. Mr Harrington opposed tho bill at length on Iho grounds that there ere enough and loo many banks already, that Ihey were unnecessary to tho growth and prosperity of n community, that their irillucnco by stimulating speculation and diverting men from their proper channel of business, wns positively in jurious, that they wero frequently mado tho engines of favoritism nnd oppression, that tho community frequently sustained heavy losses by their explosion, lhat there as no call lor a bank 111 liramtoii, it thu ntatomcnl8 mado by Us friends wero correct nnd there was so much cnpitnl seeking investment as had been represented, smco that it, if loaned out, would furnish all tho money accommodations re quired by die liusiiics of the town, und finally be cause tho caso of tho Rank of Essex, Iho absolute necessity for which vas domorisiratrd to the ollnr House, of which ho was Ihcn 11 member, by a most overwhelming array of fac's slrowing die vast a mount of business iho institution would accommo date, had taught him to receive tho statements of interested parlies in such applications with many grains of allowance. Mr Cushman favored tho bill ns being required by the business wnms of that part of tho State, and thought that the argument drawn from the fact ot its present superior accommodations to other sec tions was inconclusive,sincnclson here, and particu larly in Windsor oiinly, tho banking capital greatly needed enlargement. Air Kimball opposed the bill on its merits, and yet would like lo sco what its friends could urgo in Us pl-IiuII, and should voto tor its engrossment. Tho bill was ordered to bo engrossed by a vole of 17 lo 10. Tho Houso Resolution providing for tho distri bution of tho Report of the State Geologist nas concurred in.

Mr Harrington ot Al. said this would entirely overturn the present system; he thought it would be entire ly impracticable, unless the principles ol tho pro bata laws wero to be applied to debtors making them civilly dead and having their cstato adminis tered upon. Air Aimer said diere w ere evils in the present system which ought to uu remedied, uui ho ihnught the present proposition would involve great difficulties, pirticularly in ascertaining Iho amount of debts owed. Mr Wulkcr objected that Ibis prop osition would placo debtors entirely nt tho mercy of any man who could buy up a liw.' dollar debt such a mnu could attach, and require tho whole cs tato of ihe debtor to bo admimstcred upon. Air Kuaball said the pr'-sent system was ruinous to ev ery man who was so iiiitorluuate ns to become in volved in debt, and was severely felt by young men who havo been unsuccessful in business. Air Fair banks said it is obviuusly unjust that ono creditor should nttnch the entire estate of n debtor to tho exclusion of all others, and ho did not anticipate so many difficulties in tho proposition of rniorm now presented; Massachusetts had adopted n sim ilar system, which operated well though he con fessiid it had greally lessened tho business of law- yu:s, Irom whom ho unticipited objections to tins measure. Air Harrington ot Al. said that II a bank rupt system was what was wanted, he would pledge tho Judiciary committee to act upon tho subject without nny partiality lo tho legal profession, it die gentleman irom at.

'and Mr Vitas moved that Iho bill bn recommitted. Mr Rich pub- gested a doubt whether the bill nas constitutional. Air Vilas thought Hint tho provisions ot the pres ent bill wero repugnant to tho construction which Iho otucrHotischail repeatedly and uniformly put upon iho Constitution, incases where seats of mem bers had born congested on tho ground that their clrclion hnd occ urred after midnight. Yet he iho' that gre it evils woro incident to tho nocturnal c lections which wero now becoming so prevalent evils from which other Now England S.ntcs wero c.Xf.iipt, nnd which every love" of sobriety nnd 1 i, .... , .1 fj.Hin urner suouiu w-sn to sou removed lie had -iLioroiugiy moved lo recommit iho bill, hooinrr thai Iho c mmitioe would devote their pttcnlion to Iho subject, nnd consider whether borne constitu tional und unobjectionable mode could not bo do- ivised to elloct tins object. Air Smith argued that tho .rcsont bill was palpa bly unconstitutional, depriving, as it would, tho peo ple ol a right to bo represented in tho Legislature, which iho constitution forever guarantied to them. This right could not bo limited or restricted. If tho Legislature hid the power to prescribe 12 o'clock ns tho time when the ballotings shall ter minate, they might specify any earlier hour; and thus might virtually tako away the right of election ullogeiiior. Air Kimball believed that tho constitution limits Iho limo of election. It expressly provides that tho House nf Representatives shall consist of per sons to bo chosen by ballot by iho freemen of every town, on the first Tuesday oi' September, and un less tho word Tuesday could bo mndo to rompriso Wednesday or nil tho subsequent days of tho week, elections made thereafter must bo unconstiiutional und void. Air Vilas observed that tho phraseology of tho constitution here must bo construed as is tho lan guage of our laws which p-escribo tho dav of holding courts: nl least that was tho construction put upon it by former legislatures. Air Cushmin remarked that tho bill was n mem construction of the constitution, and consequently could icaull in no practical benefit. It vvmihl hn perfectly riirlit am nronor fur nm fittnrn fl, i, .... in judging of the validity of tho election or nny ot its members', to put their own construction upon the constitution, and reverse theirs if tlmy saw lit. Mr Hodges was inclined to think thu present bill unconstitutional, but thought the subject wuj worthy of investigation, anu honed that thu Hin doo tn recommit would prevail. Air Harrington believed they had no authority cr control over the matter. Tho constitution .rnniPil tho right, nnd the people must ballot n1 Intirr no thoy saw fit, or ns long as a single freeman insists upon depositing his voto.
