Gentlemen ol Hie IIourp ot Represen tatives: It would be ti-elcss lo disguise the fact tint I feel deeply embarrassed in taking this Chair under the circumstances attending my elerlton. I mn conscious of tho difficulties by which this position is surrounded at this time. The peculiar ori'anizitinn of this hotly is exhib tied in our prryecdinps since we first met. The nature and character of the various important and exciting questions of public policy which will cngiec our attention during the present ses sion of Congress, conspire lo render the duties of ilus office peculiarly cinbarras-ing, onerous and res'iousible. I may be permitted, therefore, lo a-fc, in advance, your generous aid and sup pint in the effort I shall make, firmly, faithfully and impartially to discharge its duties. The country has been looking'with anxiety to our ef fort to effect an organization, and thepeoplp will continue 10 rpgard with interest every step we take in our legislative course. Our duties will he laborious our re-pon-ihilities great. Let us, then, :n vieWof these considerations, invoke, in the discharge of these duties, a patri otism as broad as the Union, anil as comprehen sive as the nature and character of her various interests and institutions. Guttled by this spir it, und.'r the Olessing ut Heaven, out action will result in the continued prosperity of our com mon couniry.

He had been accustomed to hear the North lec turedthe North told to stand up and tace the music," the North spoken to by certain gentle men, who undertook to be the peculiar champi ons of freedom ou this tl iur. He should pass all that by, if these gentle. urn confined Ibeui-clves lo mere general lectures ; but they i nt lurther, as his colleague had dtme Ibis morning, and came before this lluusc utnle. taking to misrepresent the position ot other gentle. 11011, including him sell', (Air.

His colleague, belore any Interroga tory had been put lo him, hid volunteered the declaration that to the northern Whigs of this House it was peculiarly owing ihitthe present speaker a southern gentleiiHii no occupied the chair. He had said that if Ike Whig party had put up a candidate known to be in tavor of tlie v iluiot proviso, ne could have been elected 111 an hour; and thereupon h-r (Air. S) thinking his colleague's possittuii untenable, hid asked htm why, il he was in favor of any northern man who was a Wilmot proviso man, he had hui taken ihe northern man presented, who hid al ways sustained the Wilinot proviso, but had con tributed by his course to Ihe elt-ctiou of u south ern speaker ? The gentleman had replied, that he did not recognize the candidate ot the Whnr party as Lemg in tavor of jhe Wilmot proviso! And how did he pruve it? Did ho refer to Ihe tact Ihat Mr. Wmthrup formerly moved in this House to incorpora'e that provision ot tho ordi nance of '67 into the Oregon bill ? Had his colleague referred lo the fact that Air. Wmthrup had voled for that very proposition, when il was hrst christened the W ilmul proviso? Had he .elerred to tho votes of ihat gentleman, and to his past cuurse 111 this Hall? Nut so. His col league had left years ol Jejjistaiiou, or continu ous consistent conduct, on the part of the gen tleman from Majjjucliiiselts, out of view, and ru- ferred o the organization of the committees this House at the last Congress, in such a man ner, his colleague had contended, as to uptioiu the traffic in si ives in this District. Mr. Gid 'in?s (Mr. Shenckyieldingicxphined ihat his objection io the gentle nan from .Massa chusetts for Speaker, was, that afier the present Hxecutive of the United States was nouumted, that gentleman Mr. Winthn.p had declared his opinion at a Whig meeting in Massachusclte.nid had moved to lay on Ihe table ihe proposition of a gentleman from Cambridge, w Inch pledged the Wh'g party against the support ol any man who was opposed to the Wilmot proviso. His objec tion to the gentleman arose also from the tact ihat he hid gniu; for Texas, in a public toast at Funeuil Hi.ll, Boston, 111 July, Iit-13, before Tex :w was annexed. His objection to that gentle inm were also lounded upon the acts of his whole public life, and pirlicularly upon whit had been said ill Whig caucus upon llio Saturday evening previous to the commencement of the present session, when the gentleman'.-, colleague had said, that it was no part of tho Whig policy to adopt Ihe Wilmot provi-o.
