WAsINoToN, July 15
In the Senate, this morning. Mr. Clay.
of Kentucky, expressed a wish that the
l7 Senate would take up the bill for a loan of
twelve millions of dollars, as the exigencia
of the Treasury rendered its prompt pas
sage highly necessary.
Mr. Calhoun hoped they would dispose
of the subject before them (the Bank )
before another was taken up.
Mr. Clay said he was as much disposed
9 to finish the Bank Bill as the Senator from
4 South Carolina, but the condition of the
n 'reasury was such that it was necessary
to act on the Loan Bill immediately. At
present there was its theTreasury but $960,
000. not enough for a single fortnight.
Mr. Calhoun asked if the necessity was
so urgent. why the Lan Bill had not been
acted u1i earijer, instead of repealing the
t Independent Treasury Bill, the Distribu
tion Bill. the Bank Bill, &c. But if the
Senatur wished a prompt relief to the
Treasury, let him introduce a bill for the
temporary issue of Treasury notes, and
ti'!re would be no difficulty in passing it.
Mr. Clay scouted the idea of Treasnr
notes. The Senator might as weU a
thetn to establish the Sub.Treasury. As to
the delav in this and other measures, it was
attributable to the fact that the minority
had the control of the business of the Sen
ate. The lhouse had passed several Io
portant bills, which were now lying on the
table, and yet gentlemen evinced a deter
imiination to protract debs- by useless
Mr. Calhoun replied to the remark asto
the greater expedition in transacting basi
nets in the House. How had it been ac
complished. By the act of a despuoic ma
ioritv trampling on the rights of the mi
ly destroying the freedom of de

ought -it w"'6'61d' Ti3e~neessa ~7
toilar means in the Senate togive
ity a control of the business.
Ihoun woild inform the Senator
attetnp:ed it. he would find it no
easy mnater to accomplish.
Mr. King repelled the intimation that
the Democratic Senators were the case
of the delay in that body. The Seuators
on the opposite side had occupied consid
erably more than half the time of the Sel
sion, and the Senator from Kentucky had
consumed more time than any two Sena
tors on the floor. But he would say to the
Senator if he wished to take a vote on his
Bank Hill. the Democratic Senators are
willing that it be taken on Saturday, hot
they would not be restricted in presenting
their views on the momentous neasurev
presented f.or their consideration-. 1Y it
should lie attempted, he, for one, would
resist it to death.
Mr. Benton thought the admonition
about lon speeches came with an ill grate
fi.rm tle opposite side of the chamber. He
4 would regard the introduction of a gag law
it, that chamber. as an utter subversion of
lhie Constitution; that their businese there
would ie. not to legislate for the country.
but to register the edicts of a Dictator.
Mr. Clay again defcended the gag law of
the Ilouse, arid std it was approved of by
i the country, wiho were tired of loagspeecb
e. Mr. Calhoun could tint help noticing the
similarity of the Senator's argument tW

Mr. Linn said that threatened men live
bong. and hte truastedl the liberties of tbe
Senm~te would sturvive the threats of the
Senator from Kentucky; but he wished the
Sona:or would at otnce bring on his gag.
and he would find the miniority would de
fend their rights like metn.
A moution was then made to go int Ex
ecur ive sessiOn, which was opposed by Mr.
Calhoun, as a violation of the rule intro
dluce,l by Mr. Clay. which made it impr
ativo that the unfinished business of the
day before should be taken up at 11i o'clock.
The Ch:gr (Mr. Southard,) decided against
M r. Calhon', point of order, andthe latter
app;ealed from the dlecision. At the re
qit of some Senators, the appeal was
thme' pasned informally, and ibe Senate

bate by the WVhigs. in confirming the nom
inatioti of a notorious Abolitionist, which
Iwas not decided on at the ajdnurnment.
SIn the House. the day was consumed to
debating the Fortification bill, Mr. Rhett
closed the sitting by some verv elequent
remarks in reply to several W~higs whft
