2. Rsoiired, That the vonstituiion or
the United States embodies the political
wisdom of the ablest Statesmen and Pa.
trots ofthe Revontion., and furnishes rules
for practical government which command
the confidence of the whole country. that
a National Convention ought therefore to
onuform as nearly as possible to the epirit
ad priniples at that Constian, and
cannot butfait in itsoljects. when it de
parts from a guide so well established in

3. eoT=Zr't. That this Constitution pre
scribes for the Government the mode of
executing the very duty which a Nationat
Convention is now required to discharge
far the party, that is to say, the selection
of the proper person to represent them as

6. Trr'efr Resofred, Thsat bi.. meet
ing can see no suficient reason for c-hang
~ing the time already appointed for the
mieeting of the National Convention by
the Democratic Republicans in the States
* of Ketucky. Maryland arid Michigau;
that this time has already becun fundt thbe
tut advisable by foritner Conventions,
and is the most suitable in every respect ;
that a change of the period of meetinK
without some urgent necessity (~wbic-h duet
pot in this case exist) would not only seem
wanting in courtesy to those who were the
first to name it, but naight justly tenad to
infuse suspicions as to ulterior objects
which every member of the party should
strive to avert ; that the Democratie lIe
p.ublicans of the Sixth Congressunal Dis

imously recommend to the whole pary

a.matter of surprise and regret, that before

not beeu taken of the losses and disadven
tages our planters meet with in consequence
if frauds in packing Kentucky Bagging
and.Rope. It is a great and crying evil,
well known to every planter. and if there
e a remedy within our reach most assur
ly it ought to be applied. I call to wit
every farmer or overseer, who has
a in the habit o(witnessing the unpack
of bagging and rope at ilt Gist, if it is
a rare thing to find a coil of rope from
yfairly packed? I have not open

lad a coil of Kentucky rope not falsely
packed. The rope I have used this year,
although I bave selected the best I cousld
fiud, has taken 1i punds to the bale, whicb
is a loss of about 25percent. In bagging
the loss, by false packing, is almost as
uniform though generully not so great as
in rope. A ccordiug to my eagerience, the
loss in bagging, by false measuring, hollow
end pieces and thin slasy cloth in the in
side,. is usually about 15 or 20 per cent.
Now, Mr. Editor, I wish you wouldi
ask other persons who have some expe
rience in this nmaster, and if their testisuo
ny correspondonds with mine, I wish you
w ould enquire and inform us whether there
is within our reach, any legal and proper
remedy fur so heavy a burden upon our
labor.-Surely if thais is a country of laws
we ought to be protected from a regular
system of awinadling, though it bo perpe

Resol*d, That The thanks er thit House
e ofered to the Hee. John Whie. for the
ble. ianpartial, and digui&id maaner in
which he bas discharged she duties of
Speaker during the 27th Congress.
Mr. Pickens rose to make an appeal to
those gentlemen with whorni it had beets
his pride and pleasure to set on all great
public questions. He hopedthey would
Imade no opposition to the present resolu
lion. Mr. P. well remembered when, or
a similar occasion, a similar resition1
had been rendered to a Speaker who had
Iresided with distinguished ability over
he House, that it was assailed with bitter
ness-I allude to Mr. Speaker Pork. (
ought then it was unkind and nodigni.
fied, and think so still. It was unworthy
of the occasion. And let us not now imi
tate an example set as by our opponents,.
which it does not become us to follow.
Where they aeted wrong, let us do right.
Let us, on this occasion, in our closing
scees, act with liberality adil g4nerosity.
Mr. Speaker, I came here a member is
1634. soon after I was of an age to be eli
gible; and I can say, without arrogance,
lint there has been no great public ques
ion that has arimen, frmn that time to the
present, in which I have ot taken an ac
tive and decided part; and on any measure
involving vital principle, I think I can say
that I would be amongst the last to yield.
It has beco my habit, on all such mea
sures, to be firm and decided, and even
sometimes ultra. But, while it has been
my pride to take the highest and most un
compromising grounds upon questions of
principle, yet. is everythtng involving the
mere courteses nf life, and personal liber
ality, it is she glory ol .v nature to yield,
where generosity demands it.
I look upon the present resolution as
involving no princi;le. but as an 3et of
usual cotpliment, habitually paid In every
civilized assembly to its presiding officer;
and I trust my friends will not do anything
to mar the appropriate harmony of the
occasion. Let us remember that it is the
lot of humanity to err, and that it is the
glory of a magnanimous nature to forgive
and to forget. I have be eapged In
the fiercest and most bitter coudfcts that
have occurred upon mostof the dises
ions of the day, and yet I can lay my
hand upon m beart. andra., I am about
to retire, dee in the utona sincer't,

it has been my pleasure to be thrown to
getherln all the -ocislons of this House.
Mr. Speaker, this Congess has done
enough to ender.hitr ad hostile feel
ings amongst members upon this floort;
and it has also dome enough to sow the
seeds of discord, wIde and deep, throughb
out the Confederacy. And now that we
are abont to close otar labors, let us not, in
our expiring moments, show that (like
the savage) we cam harbor vengeance and
malignity even in the dying hour. Let us
seize upon this occasion (which has al
ways been considered 6t and proper) to
mingle together in harmony, and exhibit
all he nobler attributes of magnanimnity
Sir, we are ahout to part. and mainy of
usforver. In God's anelet us part in
peace; and may every unkind recollction
of thme past be absorbed in one common
feeling-and that, a burning, devoted at
tachment to our common country, her hono,
und her glory. I am readyr to vote with
cheerfulness for the resolutmon.

-The House of Repreeentatives passed
in order, long since, proposing to go itoo
an election for a U. 8. Senator. The Whig
mnajority in tbe Senate refused to consider
tat order. To-day, Mr. Maulsby, from
Crroll county, a very promissiag young
man and Democrat, proposed a message
in the Seate to be sent to the House of
elegateo, informing that body of the re
ception of its order to go into an election.
for a United States Senator, and suggest
ig thaat the t wo Houses should this day;
at 8 o'clock. p. in., proceed to the election.
This message, without discussion, and al
most without being read by the Clerk,
was on the motion to of Mr. Ricaud, a
Whig Senator, laid upon the table. A
