Mr. Holmes moved to amend the reso lation by striking out the words *-commit tee on commerce," and inserting in lieu thereof the words "committee on military affeirs." Ar. Holmes explaine.! that the appro priation was not proposed nor asked for improving the harbor of Charleston. All that was asked that the Government should take recourse for the protection of ibeir own Fort in the harbour. The subject, therefore, belonged not to the committee on commerce, but to the committee on military allairs. Mr. Fillmore said that the esti mates sent t. the committee was for im proving the harbor. Mr. Granger said, if the object was to raise anuy conscientious scruples about the constitutionality of improving harbours. lby making this appear to be ain appropria tion for a military object, he hotld vote against tle amendment of Mr. liolmes. Mr. Holmes replied, that without any con stience or pretence of conscience in the matter, he cunsidcred the object as military. But the amendment wus rejected and the resolution adopted.

Mr. Cal houn considered that, by making the issue of the treaty. we would in efTeet, make a tender of the treaty to Great Britain. But, Mr. Benton says let as violate the treaty and take possession without notice; e let us go to war; and what then ? We o can help frerand to gain her Independence. Ielf thise the o-ject or provoking hostilities with Great Britain. why not declare it openly, and comnmeuro a war of fraterni zation.
