On motion of Mr. Harbour, Hetolv il, That the committee of Ways and Means be instructed to enquire into the proprie ty of providing by law, for compensating the ser vice* of such of the Assessors as shall have he | Su“ t0 I**form the duties ol their office, and shall have been p*-cvented from completing the same, eitherreason of an assumption of the hrect tax, or by order from the proper oflicerfof the United States, not to proceed further therein.

Alter some conversation as to the mode of ar rivmg at the general object of the resolution, to wliion there was i.o objection ; as to the proprie ty ol mak ng it a joint enquiry ; and of appu.ni ng the c mmittees for the whole Congress, Ctc tl.e resolution was agreed to in tbc following w ords: Jlrto/verf, That i cmiiiitlt* »t oititeil to en quire, in conjunction with such committee us may be appointed by die Senate, into the expe diency ol making the following alterations in the mode ol transacting the pubhc business ofi6fm gress t to wit That the standing commit ttees appointed at the commencement of any Congress, shall net be dissolved at the end of'lie session at w Inch they were appointed ; that on the adjou. n ment of Congress the unfinished business,to wit: bills resolutions and reports of committees, shad remain over to the next session of the same Con gress, in the same situation as they wcie at die tnne of adjournment. commiuee ol three was appointed accord ngiy on the part of the part of dus Mouse. Mr. J.'rumdei, after a f vv prefatory remarks, olfeied me following resolution, which was a greed to without objection. ■fletolvcd, That the committee on Naval Affairs be instructed to enquire into the expediency of so amend.ug ihe laws relating o tlie -Marine Corps, as to reduce the number of that corps to lie retained on tlf% peace e» abhslnneiu to a num ber winch -hail bear a ju»t proportion to the naval l ifce wh.ch it is proposed 10 keep in service. 1 lie bill irom the Senate to reward tlie officers and crew of tlie li-.gate Constitution, was read and referred l(> the c nnm.tteeon Naval Affairs. 1 lie amend.i.cuts of the Sena e to the bdl in add.lion to the ac. regulu ing the post office es t jblibliment, Wire taken up. One of iliese amend meats >eiiig to increase the compensation of a particular deputy postmaster, gave n e to a de sullory debate of some length, on he merits ot other depu y post-masters, and tbeir claims to additional compens ion, ike. Ihe Mouse then proceeded to that amendment of the Senate which stru k out the 3d section ot the bdt, wh.ch section granted to the i.ie.nbei* ot both Houses ami their Secretary and Clerk, the privilege of franking during die recess as well as dur ng the session -»1/X Kunduph hoped the House would not con cur with the benale in tins amendment—and pro cceded to argue at some le .g b m oppos.tton therein. He iu.il siibstaiit'otly. that there were many ol the |>eliy officers of tile government win. post eased tlie privilege \of franking ; vliat the members of Congress were great officers of the state, at all times liable to lie called here at a moment's warning upon national concerns ; thai ihe Clerk ot tins llousc and tne Secretary of the .■senate were also high ar.d respons.ble olHcers, constantly in tlie public service, and men better entitled to the privilege than many who possess ed ii ; and a concurrence in the amendment, would be consenting to take rank below the sub ordinate ofHcers of the government. He knew that great clamor had lieen attempted to be .’a s u on the subject of another, (the compensation} bill wh.ch la eiy passed die House : hut tv hat poli tical materials are there, said Mr. It. which fac tious printers will not work up to serve their pusposcs ? Was there a shadow of reason why tlie Vice-President of the limted States should be invested with dns privilege, that was not c qually strong in fsvor of tne presiding olHcer of dus House?; a privilege possessed by the highest and the lowest oilicers in the public emplov — from tlie President of the Un ted Sta es, u> a de puty post-master, who does not receive Hve dol lars a year in postage. Compare this pnv.legc, said he, with tlie exemption front inihlia service, j " Inch is conferred on post maste.s, and then de cide the question. He could not agree to the practice of stripping the members ot Congress of a necessary privilege, like so m my hve: y servants, twenty days after the end ot the session Air. t uthbert was in favor of concurrence. If the privilege of frank mg were claimed as a mat ter of compensation, then as a matter of compen sation he was opjiosed to it—if as a matter of pri vilege, then as a mat.er of privilege lie was oppo sed to it. Me thntignt alsi „ that instead ol mam taming ;he dignity of the members by con.ending for tins power, they were putt.ng themselves on a footing with the subordinate officers of the go vernment by it Tlie President of the Umie.i States, he sa.d, was dieclucf executive magistrate constantly engaged in correspoiul.ng on national concerns, and required an exemption from .he payment of postage. Wnaicver privileges are ne. cessary to a.d in conducting publ.c business, a.:d not to suit private Convenience, lor the purpose of cm responding with friends, &c. was proper, bui none o ners. ’ ( Mr. Webttcr spoke agamat concurring Willi t!»e Senate in their unricndmcm. fie tnoughl (f Uuie was any necessity or propriety ,n thc,uivi itge during the session, it was equally p.oper during the rece.s, it member* were to be itgaru cd as public men. I’tie power of abusing me privilege was no argument—imw m«y thousand deputy post-masters were there wi.o could abu c tbe privilege, )tt it was not urged agamst gi ant mg it to tnem. lie thought it was proper to coniine the privilege sir.ctiy to the session, or to extend it to the recess also. Mr. Jleyvolth was also m favor of retaining llie privilege. An important reason for it was, the resolution tins very day adopted, to make the ^landing committee* permanent during the wh de Congress, which would involve Utem m corres pondence on public business. Mr Jacket spoke a sho t time against (he a me.idm4.Ti: lie thought n important that com munication should be kept up during the recess lie tween die members and their eonnitiiems.
