TREASURY NOTES.
Mr. J.ctvj of Cont. submitted fur consider
ation the following resolution :
'Resolved, Tiiat the Committee of Ways
and Means he instructed to enquire into the
expediency of extending the several laws au
thorising the issue of Freastirv Notes in such
manner us to mak,j them receivable in all ( a
sr.fi of finc9, forfeitures or penalties which
rnav be due or owing to the United States,
and also to extend the said lav/s ns to make.
rreasery Notesreceieuhle for t-xes due to
the United States from any number of per
s.'tis who may unite for tiiat parjHisc.
• . Mr. h./tfirs of la. desired to know the ol>
jectofthis motion. It appeared to him, on
nit nisi, v t-'.v, mac ir would introduce a spe
culation in the government paper immoral in
itsell and injurious to the public credit. Ev
ery individual w.isby existing laws authorised
pay Ini particular tax os iu Treasury Weten.
Mr. Ijarj said bis object was not to encou
rage speculation, but to enable the people to
pay their taxes upon an equal footing. At
present, if several persons having taxes to
|>a can make up the precise amount they
owe in Treasury Notes, the Collectors will
not receive them, alledging that they are s>
instructed by the Treasury Department.
I reasnry Notes w ere not now issued of any
denomination less than 20 dollars ; and yet,
if two persons owing ten dollars each, ten
dered such a note in payment, the collector
would not receive it. The consequence of
which is, that such persons have to procure
specie to pay their taxes, nothing else b' ine
receivable. He had therefore thought it
wou'd he advisable tlr.it the committee of
Ways and Means should enquire into the
su ij/Ct.
Mr Wgrfow of Mass. confirmed the state
ment of Mr. I,aw, having received, as be
said, s vera! letters from his district of the
same import. He had tmderstnivl that the
Secretary of the Treasury complained that
ad the taxes were paid in Treasury Notes,
lie knew not how that could lie, as he knew
that most of the taxec, in his district at
l« fist, Were paid in other n.onev ; unless that
the collectors receive the taxes in good
money, and instead of pnymg it into the
I reasnry, make use of it to buy in Treasury
Notes at a discount to pay into the Treasu
ry* and make • uro'it y * <.>,«. 4:fr..r.

illotaon so as to strike out that partof it, autho

‘act, that.^hc Treasury Dep itmcnt had it
in contemplation to issue notes of a smaller
denomi mioa than those now iu circulation
which would Obviate altogether the cidl.cuity

1 he engrossed arnei Aments to the bill from
the Senate “ to inc'irp.irntv the Bank, of the
b*hited States of Vmenca,” \* *-re then read,
and the question stated—“ Shull this ! ill pass
as amended ?” an tue vras and navs tSiC'e*
on having been required by Air. Stan
ford—
Mp- Fisk of N.Y rose to assign the reasons
which tv w infiut need him to vote against this
bill. His objections were, to the reduction of
the capital, and to the omission oi" wh.it had
been miscalled the,.forced loan feature of the
bill, which Ik* considered one of the best.—
The bill, before it was amended, would, he
said, have afforded to the government a hen*
cut to the amount ot twenty' millions, but now
would not afford to it a greater bonus than
three millions. He obtected to the amend
ments which had taken from the bill the-con
trol which the government ought to have o
ver it, and would throw the government and
the monied resources of the nation into the
power of its political adversaries. There
were also other features of the bill to which
lie objected ; so strongly up ,n the whole that
he would not vote for the bill.
Mr. Harnon of Md. expressed his regret
to see any inqiedimer.t thrown in the w.iy
of t '.e bill. He expressed all the satisfuctuvi
lie ft It, at being able on this occasion to re
deem his pledge to co-operate with the ma
jority in any mease re which he could he ue
or believe would be. bentfi ml to the oati >*i.
This bill, in its present shape, be re mark id
was the result of a camapromize produced by
mutual and magnanimous concessions, anil at
a period like tins, of bitter political animosity,
concessions reflecting equal honor, on both sides
ofthe house.
Mr. Gron>snor of "N. Y. assigned at some
length, the reason why he slum I vote against
the bill. He. expressed, in a feeling manner,
iiis regret at being cortj|>elled to vote, on this
occasion, against so many of those with wh in
he had heretofore- iwted. in opposition to tin;
measures of this admin;3trati'.i». His o j-*c
tions were tnotc to the time when and pur*
poses for which.a Rank is to be cstablishe 1/
than to the features of this bill ; to some of
which he objected. He denied., that it oral.I
be u specie Raiik,*or that the Rank would
ever be able to get a million of its notes u>r >
circulation. The government reiving upon ji
would be disappointed, and ruin soon scare
them in the face. He denied ilic oper-tea
upon himself of the anniment that th . w-', ' ‘
lesser evil than what »iig t be substitut-d
for it it'it did not p'.ss. II would not. he
said, embrace this evil in order to avoid a.
greater which might not happen ; 1-e wool'
never, he said, adppt a principle looking to
wards that which imports, that the eui may
jnstily the men-s. '
Me. Telfair of Oeo. stated the icnsono
why. although he decide "v approved of the
mil which had been first before the house, he
| ‘’hould yet vote for th s bill. He was s. rious
i >y. conviuced, he a .id, that under the presect
embarrass neiit of our circulating medium St f
tiie fiscal concerns of the nation, that a H ’.k
was indispensable ; and, th- ugh the system
now before the house was one the det ails ot
which he could not approve, ho would vote
f .r it as a lasr resort. He frankly intimated
l^s hope that the other House would pr ipo ie
some modific >tion r.f the amendments of this
house, .hat would render the compromise, of
opinion more equ: table than as it now stood.
Mr, i. went int in general examination or
th« principles and history of bunking, pr n
cirmlly to shew that banks founded" nn the
credit of governments and on public stocks
had not been as gene ml ly unsuccessful as bad
•Hen contendtxl;. and he then comp ire I the
present system with that which came frini
the Senate, to me latter of wliich he g ive 9
decided preference.
Mr. Ingham oj i’a, believed, he said, u
