Walworth moved to insert the words 4*or agent’’ after the word ‘‘of ficer,” which was assented to by the mover. Mr. Smith moved further to amend the resolution by inserting after the word shall,” the words. “ with inten tion to embezzle the same." The mo tion was opposed by Mr. Cook and Mr. Hardin, and supported by the mover and lost. Mr Condict moved to strike out th« words 4t by which the U.

Mr Kirkland was not ioclined to carry his prohibition so far. It the of ficers and agents of the government can and do respond, according'to law, that he thought, was all that need be requi red of them. Mr Condict replied. Mr. F John son also made a few remarks iu favor of the proposed amendment Mr. Mitchell, of S C. also expressed himself in favor of the amendment — Looking over the document which had been referred to, (the list of unsettled balances) he thought its contents were a disgrace to the government—a libel on the country. Until he saw that document, he did not think that the country was capable of producing si.eh a one. Finally,Mr. Kirkland, assented to the modification proposed by Mr. Con* Q1C*. Mr. Cook proposed to add to the res olution the following senteace. “And, also into the expediency ef requiring all such officers to be dismissed from of fice upou failure faithfully to account for the money or property, so confided to them.” This proposition was agreed to by the house, and the resolution a* modified, was thereupon adopted.
