(Eins*r session.
Wednesday, Ja . vary 9.
i .‘Ir. Snii.h of S:>u:Ii Carolina, presented a me
i.ional ol the inhabitants id Georgetown, South
i aroliua, remonstrating against the additional du
ti.M upon foreign imports contemplated in the
woollens Bill, presented last year; which was
[read, and referred.
Marks presented a memorial from the City
ami County of Philadelphia, stating that they are
< eoply sensible of the great importance to the true
!!. irf?t. , lc .Unitj,l Sia,C! of an extended sup
. to the Agriculture and Manufactures cf the
loim.ry. I hoy, therefor:*, respectfully pray that
* ongrcr.3 will he pleased to give their earnest at
tention to the; great national object, by imposing
u .11 *alutary additional duties on the leading im
portant articles ruado fiotn our great domestic sta
ples, a* their wi* —»ui shall direct, which will pro
' tel from imminent danger a large rapit.il already
WTiharfeti, au.l, as your memorialists fully believe, I
produce the moat prosperous results to the commu
nity at large.
The memorial was read and referred.
Mr. I laync presented the memorial of the Agri
cultural Society ot South Carolina, against further
duties on imported articles, as unjust, unequal,
and oppressive; which Mr. II. moved to have print
ed for the use of the members.
Mr. Foot opposed the printing of the memorial,
...i s.*v oral on the same subject had already been
; ..:ded this session, and the sentiments expressed
in them being chiefly similar, it was useless to
multiply printing which could produce no practical'
beneht. I
.Tir. n.r.ne saw, mat, wnon a memorialist came!
into the Sen it.:, he had thought he hail a right to
be heard, and to have his views thoroughly undor
sio.'mI, by the Senators; several memorials had been
i d, Lul he had moved that the reading of this bo
ih.'penscd with, and he thought it but right that it
.“■loulii be ptinlcd. Indeed, lie Ilio*t. ail memo
rials ou subjects of general interest, ought to be
printed, tli.it tho members might be informed of
the opmions of people in ditierent parts of the
country, lie hoped, therefore, that no further
objection w vild be made to the motion to print.
-Mr. 1‘oot replied that, it all the memorials that
were presented to Congress were printed, it would
be out of the power of the Senators to read the
whole, nor would it be profitable lor them to do so,
as »1, .• reasoning and views of one were general
ly repeated in them all, on certain subjects.
iWr. Dickerson was sorry to see any opposition
to the motion. 1 he subject ot the memorial was
otic of ere it importance, and if the gentleman
from South CnioHna desired it, there could be no
doubt that the memorial ought to be printed, to al
low the members to investigate the subject tho
.Mr. Smith of S. Carolina observed, that the me
morial Under consideration ought to be printed, fe any
member, presenting it, was entitled to ask it. He had
received sever il similar papers, anil if the print
ing of this was refused, he should consider it his
duty to his constituents to take upon himself the
responsibility of refraining from presenting them.
The Senate appointed a Committee on Manufac
tures, whoso duty was to investigate all such appli
cations. But that committee, it was well known,
was composed of members favorable to manufac
tures, anu it was, therefore, necessary that memo- i
rials should he laid before the members, otherwise
than through that committee. The Senators were
not likely to know any thing of their contents, un
less they examined the documents in the hands of
the Committee, which would be a tedious business.
As to reading tho memorials, he would only re
mark, tiiatone had been read this morning, and he
be'i'wcd not ten of'thc Senators hast bc”n able to
hear it. Ife could not hut consider any opposition
m printing the memorial, as injustice to the mem
bt-rs from the South. They had, hitherto, troubled
Congres s with very few memorials on this sub
ject, while they had been pouring in continually
trom the North, and had uniformly beeu printed
for the information of the Senate. And was the
houth, now that this manufacturing interest had
arrived to an alSimi ig height, and threatened de
struction to their proipciit;,, to ho trampled upon,
and refused a similar opportunity of laying their
views before Congress? It was a most important
subject, and the sentiments and wishes of all ought
to be heard. But if the motion, now in question,
were rejected, he should hereafter be silent, and
consider it his duty to withhold the memorials now
in his hands.
Mr. I lay no said that if tho Senate were neither
to hear the memorials, nor read them, lie prcsuiu
(••I no act would bo passed upon the subject; and.
under such circumstances, it would he better for
him to he silent, lie should conclude, that if the
Senate would not he ir the arguments on the sub
ject, that no gentleman could vote for the law to
increase the duties on imports. If they should
thus acitly declare that they would not touch the
law, he should not say a w ord upon the multi r. It
was, however, a subject which ought fo be exam
ined and acted upon fully—and he hoped that *he
gentleman from Connecticut would allow the inc
moiial to he printed, in order that gentlemen, of
whatever opinion, might read, consider, am! digest
p'l tho branches of tho suhjoef.
«*»• euoircmarKeu, i;iwt t,e snotl'!, vi iho per
formance of hi* duty, pass on no subject without
lull ddibcration, and thorough investigation. To
ti»i> very topic ho had given hi» attention for a num
ber of years, having been in Congress when the
i ariff of 1824 was passed. If the memorial wa*
print d, he should probably read it, although lie
doubted whether it would extend his information
or enlarge his view*. iiu bad already, this Ses
sioij, read at least live hundred pages upm this
subject, anil in each separate memorial, ho had
found pretty much the same arguments.
Tin-, question being then taken, the memorial
was ordered te be printed.
Mr. Marks then moved that the memorial on the
same subject, of the citizens of the city and county
nt I Iiiladeh hia, presented by him this inorniii",
should be piloted. Carried.
; Mr. Smith of South Carolina, moved that the
memorial on the same subject, of the inhabitants of
Georgetown, 8 C. be printed. Carried.
Mr. Eaton submitted the following re.soiution;
which was considered and agreed to:
Resolved, That the Committee on the District of
f olunibia inquire into the expediency of placing
Pennsylvania Avenue in such situation, that this
great highway of the City may be passediri comfort
and safety.
On motion of Mr. Macon, the Senate then went
into the consideration of Executive business, and
remained therein nearly two hours; when
I he Senate adjourned.
When the hour allotted to the consideration of
reports of resolutions expired yesterday, the. fol
lowing resolution, moved by Mr. Hamilton, (as
modified on the suggestion of Mr. Ingcrsoll) was,
under consideration:
i ftctofrcil. That the Committee on the Library
! be instructed to inquire into the exjx dicncy of hav
, ing an liistoricel picture of the Rattle of N. Orleans
painted, and placed in one of the panncl* of the
Mot unde. And that they further inquire into the
t expediency of engaging some suitable artist to de
I rtgif and tinish the work, and, if expedient in bodi
< oidingrnric*, to ascertain whether and on what
terms, ho can be ro engaged.” *
I ^ n lW» resolution the following amendment had
I been proposed by Mr. Dwight, viz: to embrace
i “the battle* of Runk'r Hill, Monmouth, Prince
r,7:, IT. ! the i"!'’; r n Q't^bs*. ’
I ^ ® Uiis amendment, the following amendment
, bad been offered by Mr. Storrs, to be added to the
■iinriu mcnt of Mr. Dwight-, “or such of the victo
ries achieved by the Navy of the United States, as
, their opinion should be selected for such nation
al co•-•nnemomU.,'.l.,,
'1 he resolution, together with those several a
mendment*. having now been again read, and the
> question being on tin; amendment of Mr. Stotrs:
Mr. Hamilton of S. U. said, that, after the in
dulgent attention with which he had been honored
by the House yesterday, he felt great reluctance
in trespassing again upon that indulgence; but he
ti lt satisfied that the resolution which he had sub
mitted, which was one merely of inquiry, was,
nevertheless, in danger. He certainly had not
expected that gentlemen would have embarrassed
its passage tty amendments which were calculated
to defeat it. There were two modes of legislative
hostility, which might be put prominently. The
first an open and undisguised opposition, by which
the issue was met and combated singly, and the
second an opposition by suffocation, by which
strangulation was produced by amendments, and
by which a measure was not defeated on its own
merits, but broken down by the weight which was
ungenerously put upon its back. Now, sir, why
will not the gentlemen offer their amendments as
separate resolutions of inquiry? 1, certainly, in
such a shape, will cheerfully vote for them, as I
am desirous that the Committee should not oidy
select the most competent artists, but the most
appropriate subjects, also; and that from the widest
sphere of selection. Wiil they pardon inc for say
*n7’. t*‘a* * conceive tho compliments to the several
subjects they propose, would be much more de
cisive by introducing then; separately, than by
merely nppending them to a previous and original
proposition? Ther- is surely too much merit in
ihe buttles of Bunker’s 11,11, Monmouth, and
Princeton, and in our naval engagements, to re
quire that they shoe’ l be assisted by the vote which
this House might be disposed to give separately,
on the propriety of a delineation ol* the battle of]
New-Or leans.
x L-lerc the Chair informed Mr. Hamilton that I
tlie question was upon the amendment offered by ■
the gentleman from New York (Mr. Storrs) as to ,
the naval victories, ami to that his remarks were '
to be made.]
Sir, (continued Mr. II.) nothing could be more
delightful to my feelings, than to vote separately
and distinctly lor a representation of most of the
iaiter events. The naval engagements of the late ■
war, many of them, would be particularly rich in j
that dramatic effect, which is one of the finest
provinces of painting. And I hope the day is not j
distant, and the day shall not be distant, if my hum- !
ble efforts can in any’measure contribute to it,
when these walls shall be decorated by a delinea
tion, by a first rate artist, of the battle of Lake
Krie, which is as proud a subject for the canvass
as it was lor national exultation when it occurred;
<«'od knows, Sir, that there is not a man in this'
House, who would Ice) more delighted than my
scli, however mournful the associations, in seeing .
reflected back into life, as it were, amidst the de- i

iwmcvcr, request me gentlemen wno j
have projtosed these amendments, and who prol'esa |
to be entirely friendly to the original proposition. |
and which profession I do not desire to impeach, i
not to embarrass it, by which even the. meritorious
objects they have in view are essentially endan
gered. It is a wise rule which dictates that we
should not a«k lor too much at a time : for gener
osity, as a distinguished British satirist has pointed -1
ly said, like patience, is a verj'good virtue, but is I
npt to be tir -1 by too much exercise.
If, however, gentlemen persist in their amend
ments, then I hope the friends of the original rc- j
solution will slick by it, as the man whom we do- .
!-iro to honor by its passage, did to his country in
the hour of her utmost need ; and after we have
carried it, let us, with a comity with which I hope i
wc shall always treat our opponents, and wilh ibat
justice which is due to the subject they propose, 1
vote lor them as separate and distinct propositions.
Mr. Barney of Maryland said, he wasnpprehcn
i-ivc that the train of argument adopted by the gen
tleman from South Carolina was calculated to em
barrass hit friends, who, approving of, were dis
posed to sustain hit proposition. The amendment
ollerod by the Hon. member from N. York (Mr.
Storrs.) proposed to commemorate, one of the splen
did achievements of our gallant Navy, in which he
earnestly desired to co-opcratc. Surely tile time, has
arrived, when it becomes us to express the do«
toned gratitude which the nation had long since \
warded to the glorious exploits of this arm of our
national defence. He felt no preference whether

Mr. Barney approved of in its organization, as hav
ing contributed to give to it its present efficient
character, and to promote economy in its disburse
ments. But, in bis judgement, correspondent rank
ought to be extended to the other branch of our
natjonal protection and defence, now employing six
thousand rnen, and requiring more than twenty
thousand whenever the whole naval force should
be called into service. He must confess his sensi
bilities were excited by the flagrant inju lice un
der which a gallant Corps had so long suffered,
and he lismlly hoped lb.it his friend from Fouth
Carolina would be willing that tho compli

«o. iuing with it some one of our Naval triumphs,
and that this’tribute of admiration and applause

Air. Storrs said, that he should not r 'fi-e, at a
prop r time, and on what ho deemed t<> Ire a tit
occasion, to express, by resolution, or Otherwise,
the high sense he entertained of the honor acquir
ed by tho country, by the eve nt of tho battle of
New Orleans, ns a military exploit. Ho would
always, he trusted, be so far just to himself as an
American, and one of tho Representatives of the
country here, as '.a admit that it v; v ont/lyd ,

proposed (o commemorate in the embellishment.
j ot the Rotundo. lie had no wish to embarrass anv
proposition that lie thought contributed solely to
t:i;»t purpose. Hut, while he admitted this, he*felt,
hound, injustice toothers, to say that he had never
thought, that, among all the chivalrous exploits
which had advanced the glory of the American
I character, and with reference to its consequences
j especially, the battle of New Orleans wjis entitled
to tti e exclusive honors that we proposed to con
U r upon it. He thought that the resolution, as i»r
I was introduced by the Honorable gentleman from
[boutb t orohna, might lead to great misconstrue
jlion. rhe Naval yictoiiesof Lake Eric and JLalto
t-namplam he believed to he deservin*, in every
respect in which they could he considered, of m
distinguished honor Irom Congre <, as the .iatorv
achieved at New Orleans by Major Gen. Jackson,
aud our brave and patriotic countrymen under hi i
command. W hile the one saved New Orlraus. K.*
protected the Southwestern portion of the Union
the others gave socurity to the Northwestern
States, the western and Northern frontiers of Now*
korkand Vermont. Mr. S. said, that he had no
wish to draw any invidious comparisons between
the battle <M' New Orleans and those triumphs of
the Navy, or many ot our Revolutionary battles
that equally deserved the national commemora
tion; and it was for this reason too, that he wished,
to divest the resolution of a feature il»at rendered
it objectionable in that respects, and which would
easily lead to great misconstruction. He should
most cheerfully unite with the gentleman in giv
ing to the battle of Orleans a prominent place in'tho
Hotuniln, but he thought it would lead to injurious
cri*1?*',n " c rcfus®d at the same time, to confer
t.ie honors of the country on the splendid achiev
ments of the Navy. We were the more liable fo
be misunderstood, horn the existence of other cir
cumstances, which it was unnecessary to bring
into the question, but which were sufficiently o£
y ious without any very particular reference to them.
I hose were adventitious, merely, and the subject
should be treated ns purely national. The moral
value, too. of any vole that we might pass, would
«.etive all its r.-al worth from the spirit of natron.il
ity with which we tianted the question. It is not
a thing, said• Mr. S., of the present hour, only,
ih.it w« are labouring to pass upon, and bethought
that, since the subject had now been introduced
before the House, a very tit opportunity was pre
sented of expressing our sense of the gratitude that
the Nation owes to the Navy. We have, licreto
been anxious to perpetuate the remcinbran '>
ot the triumphs of our Armies only, and our sea
men seem to have been, in some measure, over
looked. Ui.il justice to all, requires of us, that
wo now remember our moral obligations to the
Navy also. 1 *ha!l vote for the resolution if the a
mondment is agreed to, but 1 owe it to myself, at
the same ttino, candidly to say, that, if it is reject
•mI, 1 consider tiic real worth of th^ original propo*
«ilion so much impaired, and so extremely Habits
to invidious misconstruction, or real misunderstand
mg, that I cannot give itmv vote.

upon with, so mu-h eloquence by bis colleague,
(Mr. I lamilton, that he would not impair, by'any
thing he could say, the effect which that gefltle
inun s speech waj so well calculated to produce,
nod wliie.i it did produce, in this House. His only
o.iject, in rising to opj o*c the men hnent of thn
honorable gentleman Irom New Vorfc (Mr. Hforrs)
was, that tin* object of the original resolution ir.igh:

the rep itafiou of the Navy might be rescued from
an indignity. The gentleman from New Yo'k
professed himself tho Navy's friftwl, end he had no

that the geuib iii.in’s friend-hip had no*, on this oc
