Congressional Proceedings
From the National Intelligencer•
Friday, April 5,
'IN SENATE.
Several bills heretofore received from
the other House, and referred to com
mittees, were reported without amend
ment.
The Senate again took up the resolu
tions submitted by Mr. Holmes, of Ma.
on the 2d. inst. and having modified the
same, they were adopted, m the follow
ing form;
llesol’ved, That the President of the ;
United States bo requested to comma* j
nicate to the Senate the expenses of >
building each vessel of war built at each
navy yard or other place in the United
State*, authorized by the act of the 2d
January, 1813, and the acts supplemen- !
tary thereto; distinguishing in each ves
sel «o built, the expenses of timber, iron,
copper, cordage, hemp, cloth, ana other
materials; the amount paid to agents or ;
•superintendents, specifying their names;
the amount paid for labor, particulars ,
zing the sums paid to carpenters, mast*
makrs, boat builders, blockmakers, ar* •
mourers. caulkers, gun carriage makers
sailmakers,and riggers, and other labor* j
ers.
Resolved, That the President of the 1
United States bo requested to commu
nicate to the Senate the names, number
and grade of the officers, and the num
ber of men belonging to the navy, em»
ployed in, and attached to each navy
yard and each naval station in the Uni
ted States, with the services each has
performed; and the compensation each
• has received, in pay. rations, and other
emoluments, during the two last years,
ending on the 1st of Jan last; including
the value of the benefit to any officer,
for the use or improvement of any pub
lic property.
The Senate according to the order of
the day took up the bill supplementary to
the act of last session, ‘*for the relief of
the purchasers of public lands,(to ex
tend the time to September, 1822, in
which purchasers may avail themselves
of the provisions of that act,)
Mr. Thomas explained the reasons
which induced the land committee to re
port this bill, and the considerations
which rendered its passage reasonable
and proper.
Mr. Chandler offered a few remarks
adverse to the policy of legislating any
further on this subject.
Messrs. Brown of Ohio, Johnson of
Kent. Barton and Walker, severally ad
vocated the justice and expediency of
this bill, urging the shortness of the
time allowed, after the passage of the
late act, for the purchasers to make the
necessary application to tlie land-offices,
the injustice of excluding a great por
tion of them, who were actually unable
t
to make application in time, uftev the
necessary instructions and forms reach
ed the different land offices, in prepa
ring and forwarding which much of the
time allowed by the act was consumed,
and leaving very little for a compliance
with the law. by those for whose relief
it was intended &c.
the engrossed bills for the relief of
the sureties of Joseph Petti pool, and for
the relief of Joseph C. Boyd; were seve
rally read rhe third time, passed, and
sent to the House of Representatives.
The Senato then resumed the consid
eration of the bill to enable the holdors
of incomplete French &. Spanish titles
in the state of Missouri, to institute pro
ceedings to try the validity thereof, and
to obtain complete titles lor the baine
when found valid,
Several amendments had been made
to tliis bill when in committee of the
whole, which now presented themselves
for the concurrence of the Senate.
Some of those amendments, and modifi
cations proposed to them, gave rise to
a good deal of debate, in the course of
which liit* merits of the bill were inci
dentally discussed. Those gentlemen
who engaged in the debate and were
most active in settling its provisions,
were Messrs. Barton, Eaton, Benton,
Talbot, Brown, of Lou* Barbour, L#w
rie, Lanman Williams of Miss. Van Bu
ren, Van Dyke, Edwards, King ofN. Y.
and Thomas The amendments were
ultimately got through with, and the
bill was ordered to be engrossed and
• read a third time without opposition.
The Senate then spent some time in
the consideration of Executive business,
and then adjourned to Monday.

partment, transmitting copies of the
statements of the several banks in the
District of Columbia, exhibiting their
condition at the commencement of the
present year; which was ordered to be
laid on tho table.

APPROPRIATIONS.
The house then resolved itself into
committee of tho whole on the unfin
ished business of^jesterday. (the gen
eral appropriation billj Mr. Tomlinson
in the chair,
Mr. Cocke moved to strike out tho
provision ‘‘for the additional compen
sation to the clerks in the office of the
Superintendent of Inuian Trade, as al
lowed by the act of the 20tii of April,
lblS.” The motion was supported by
the mover, and Mr. Williams, ofN. C.
and carried by a large majority.
Mr. Cocke moved to strike out the
clause “for the payment of balances due
to officers of the old internal revemje
and clirect tax;” but, after some expla
nation by Mr, Smith of Md. the mo
tion was withdrawn.
The clause pioviding for the salaries
of foreign ministers being under con
Biderution—
JVir. Maliary suggested that lie wae
not satisfied that it wan necessary to
send a minister to Lisbon, and that a
Charge d’ Affaires wouid perhaps be
sufficient, lie there'.ore called for in
formation on the subject from the
chairn an of the committee of Ways
and Means
Mr. Smith, ofMd in reply to the in
quiries of Mr. Mallary, reviewed at con*
siderable length the political and com
mercial relations, which, for & tong pe
riod, have subsisted between thieTcoun
try and Portugal. We had long ex
ported, he said, vast quantities of flour
to that country; but at length the go
vernment laid a duty of $ l per barrel
on all the flour imported into that king
dom, from this country, and gav©
privileges, and held out induce*
merits to the nobility to erect mills,
which was done, and they were in a
grea* measure supplied with wheat
from Poland Our people exported no
tvbeat. They manufactured it them*
selves; but the duty which was intended
as a prohibition, was severely felt, and
our government sent a minister to that:
court to obtain a repeal of the duty,—
Ministers, however, are not always the
best negotiators in mercantile concerns;
and the object was not effected. But
it was afterwards accomplished by ©
Consul General who was thoroughly
acquainted with commercial subjects,
and the duty was taken off. Subse*
qnently, the court waa removed to
Brazils, from which it has recently re*
turned to Europe. But the duty of
per barrel, has_ been renewed, for~
the purpose of encouraging agri»
sultare, and of giving il anew dire#1
