ORDESOFTHE DAY.
The house then went into a commit
tee of the whole, Mr. Darhngton in
the Chair, on hills from the Senate
tor the relief of the legal representa
tives of Joseph Hodgson, deceased, a
hill for the relief of the sureties of Jo
seph Petty pool; and a bill for the relief
the legal representatives of Greenbury
H. Murphy; which were respectively
reported to the House, concurred in,
and ordered for a third reading.
The House again went into a commit
tee of the whole, Mr. Coodict in the
chair, on a bill for the relief of John
CoiTee, a bill for the relief of the legal
representatives of John Donnelson,
Thomas Carle, snd others, and a bill
explanatory of the act for the relief of
James Leander Cathcart; which were
fnne through with and reported to the
louse
The hill for the relief of John Donnel
son gave rise to some debate. It wa9 ad
vocated by Messrs Reid of Geo. and Ran
kin, and opposed by Messrs. Tracy and
Cocke; and, on motion of Mr. Taylor, it
was laid on the table.
The bill for the relief of John Coffee
(making allowance for extra services ren
dered as Surveyor General) was read the
ihud time,an l was opposed hy Mr. Cocke;
on whose motion, alter some opposition
irom Mr. Moore of Alab. the bill was laid
on the table.
The bill for the rebel ofthe legal repre
sentatives of Joseph Hodgson, was read
the third time, and, after some remarks
adverse to its passage by Mr. Cocke, and
an unsuccessful motion by him to lay it on
the table, the bill was passed without a
division.
The following bills from the Senate,
heretofore considered in committee ofthe
whole, and ordered to a third reading,
Were severally re^d a third time, passed,
and returned to the Senate.
The bill for the relief of Joseph Petty-!
pool; the bill for the relief of the legal
representatives of Greenbury H Murphy;
the bill explanatory to the act for (he relief
of James L. Cathcart.
The house then, on motion of Mr. Floyd
took up, and read the third time, the bill
from the Senate to repeal the Uth sec- j
tion of the actofla^t session reducing the '
army; and; after an explanatory remark I
from Vlr. F. as 10 the practical Operation
Ot the rules ami regulations adopted hy
the said 14th section, the hill was passed.
The bill granting a trajt of land to Wil
Jiam Conner and his wile and their chil
dren, Mr. Nelson o! Va. io the chair, be
ing under consideration in committee of
the whole.
Mr Hendricks briefly explained the
nature of the claim, which originated in
an indirect assurance, on the part of
our agents in the treaty held at St. Ma
ry's, of granting him the said land in
consideration of his having used his in
fluence to induce the ludians to agree to
the treaty.
Mr, Cocke opposed the claim on the
ground that it was unjust to hold out a
lure to those who have been adopted by
the Indians to betray their nation. The
sanction of the government ought not to
be given to such conduct. It tarnished
the honor, and derogated from the dig
nity of this peonle to bribe individuals
to betray the nation that had given them
protection.
The said bill, as also a bill for the re- j
lief of Richard Matson, and a bill for
the relief of Thomas Shields, were gone
through with, and reported to the hOuse;
where the two latter bills were concur
red in, and, on the former, a debate a
rose similar in its character and princi- j
pie to that which took place in commit
tee, in which Messrs. Rankin, Cocke,
Ross, Cook, Hendricks and Vance, par
ticipated; and after an ineffectual mo
tion by Mr. Cocke to lay it on the table,
the bill was ordered to be engrossed for
a third reading.
Tilt folio wing message was received
from th* President of the United State*
which, with the accompanying docu
ments, was ordered to be laid ou the ta

JAMES MONROE.
Washington, 6th May, 1822.
The House then went into a Com
mittee of the Whole, (Mr. 'V alrvorth in
the chair.) on the bill from the Senate
to provide for the collection of duties on
import and tonnage in Florida, and for
other purposes, and a bill further to es
tablish the compensation of the collec
tors of the customs, and to alter certain
collection districts, and for other pur
poses.
Mr. Bassett moved an amendment to
the second section of the bill, the pur
por* of which was to leave Hampton, in
Virginia, a pert of entry. The motion
was advocated by the mover and IN r.
H. Nelson, and opposed by Mr. Newton
and Mr. Hill, and negatived—ayes 28,
noes 66. _
Mr. Kent moved to strike out the
words “by Nottingham, to the district
of Annapolisand after a few remarks
thereon bv Mr. Kent, Mr. Smith of Md.
and M. Newton, of Va. the question was
taken thereon and lost.
Mr. H. Nelson observed that this was
an important bill in relation to the re
venue of the country -that it was diffi
cult to retain a quorum in the Honseon
the several questions proposed—and he
therefore moved that the committee rise
and report progress, which was agreed
to—ayes 52, noes 50. The two former
bills were concurrsd in, and ordered to
be engrossed for a third reading, and
the committee were refused leave to sit
again on the latter bill.
Mr. Bassett moved that the said bill
be laid on the table, on which Mr. Hill
called for the yeas and nays, which were
thereupon ordered and the question was
i decided in the negative—yeas 39, nays
I 92, so the motion to lay the bill on the
table did not prevail.
Mr. A. Smyth called for the pre
vious question, but the call wasnotsus
tained by the House—yeas 52. nays 5 k
The House then took into considera
tion the various amendments proposed
by the Committee on Commerce,
Mr. Walworth moved to erase from
those amendments the word Vermont,
and Mr. Taylor proposed to stirikk out
Champhin, from the operation of the
said amendments, as recommended to
the 8th section.
The motion to strike out was opposed
by Mr. Tomlinson and negatived.
Mr. Cambreleog moved to strike out
of the 9th section the words ‘‘New
York.” Mr. C. remarked, that he con
sidered any attempt to amend the bill
hopeless; but he thought there were
some very strong circumstances in faver
of excepting the revenue officers of the
Port of New York, from the geiiera! re
duction now about to be made. No gen
tleman would accuse him, (Mr. C.) of a
disposition to oppose any bill tending
judiciously and justly to retrench the
expenses of government. He regretted
that this bill had been kept back so long
as to preclude debate. He would only
detain the House a few moments. The
salaries of these officers were regulated
in 1790. and they have never been aug
mented or diminished since; in 1802 they
were limited as they now are; it would
be recollected that this was during Mr.
Jefferson’s administration. Mr. C.was
not the eulogist of that or any other ad
ministration, but he believed it had been
properly deemed an economical admin
stration. By loo x»ng to the history ofthe
revenue of the Port of New York, it ap
peared that in 1790, the amount of the
revenue collected was d47O.000; at that
time in the whole United St*tes> the re
venue collected was little more than
three millions. The revenue collected
at the Port of New York last year, was

.isuu.uuu, ana ne presumeu uiai uu* |
ring the present year the revenue would j
be'between 9 and 10 millions, oi* equal
to the half of the whole revenue of the
| United States He asked whether, un
i der these circumstances, it was proper
or just to reduce the salaries df these
officers* There were no officer^ under
the government who more faithfully
earned their salaries—there wj»s no de
partment of the government, Treasury.
War, Navy, or State, with all their au
ditors and clerks, which performed as
j much labor as was executed at the cus
tom-house at New York. As we had a
few days since virtually rejected the bill
reducing our own compensation, he ho
ped the house would, for this seesion, at
least, forbear to touch the salaries of of
ticers whose labors and responsibility
had so much increased in 30 yekrs. It
was a mistaken policy to change the sa
laries of revenue officers.
Mr. Chambers again moved the pre
vious question, which wa9 sustained by
the House—veas 67, nays 46.
Jt/r. Sergeant called for the yeas and
nays, which were thereupon ordered.
Mr. H. Nelson called for the reading
of the bill but the Speaker decided that
the reading, under the circumstances of
the case. (.it having been read a first and
second time ) could not be required.
Mr Nelson appealed from the deci
sion of the chair; which was affirmed_
ayes 103. noe« 9.
The question. “Shall the main question
be now put t” was theg taken by yeas and
nays, and decided in the affirmative# ycas
85, nays 51. „ „ , ....
The majn questiori, Shall the bill# with
the amendments, be ordered for a third
reading ? was then put# and it was carried
m the affirmative. ,
On motion of Mi. Walworth, a recess
was ordered until 6 o’clock* «
evening sitting.
Mr. Fuller moved a resolution calling
for a copy of the letter ot Mr* Ru?9eII re
ferred to in the message ot the President
ot the United States of yesterday, together
with such communications as may have
been received on the subject from any o
tber of the persons composing the mission
to Ghent, which resolution, according to
the rules of the House, lies on the table one
day of course
Mr. Sanders, from the committee ap
pointed to inquire into certain alterations
said to have been made in the rules and re
gulations fur the government o! the array
of the U. S. delivered in a report of some
length, which concludes with a resolution
directing the committee to be discharged
from the further consideration ot the sub
ject; which report was ordered to lie on
the table.
The following bills from the Senate; viz.
A bill for the relief ot Richard Matson;
A bill granting a tract of land to William
Conner, his wife, and their children;
A bill authorizing the payment of a sum
of money to Thomas Shields;
Were read a third time, passed, and re
turned to the Senate.
The hill further to establish the compen
sation of iffiorsof the customs, and to al
ter and establish certain collection districts
was read a third time as amended in this
Hou ♦
On »he passage of this bill, there arose a
debate, in which Messrs. Nelson of Va.
Cambreleng, Sergeant, and Wood, oppo
sed the bill, and Messrs. Newton, Tomlin
son# Sawyer, and Walworth supported the
bill.
The question was determined finally by
yeas and nays bv a vote of 100 to 35. So
the bill vras passed, and returned to the
Senate for concunence in the amendments.
Mr Trimble then moved to postpone
the Orders of the Day, in order to take up
the Message of the President returning the
i bill tor erecting toll-gates on the Cumber
j land Road, which motion was agreed to—
| 75 to 46.
So the House proceeded to the Consider
ation of that subject*
Mr, Bassett, with a view to such a con
sideration of the subject as its importance
appeared to him to require, moved to re
fer the bill and objections to a committee
of the whole; but the house refused to com
mit the bill.
Mr. Wright expressed in strong terms
bis approbation ot the Message ol the Pre
sident, particularly on the ground that, to
impose a toll on this particular road, while
other roads were tree, would be an un
equal and oppressive tax. &c. He was
however, in favor of keeping this road in
repair at the expense of the United Ststes.
The question was then taken, “Shall
this bill pass, notwithstanding the objec
tions of the President of the United States?’
and the vote was as follows:
YEAS 68

Two thirds of all the members being re
quired ro carry this question, and a major

not carried; and the bill was rejected.
A bill from the Senate to authorize the
building of light bouses therein nanted, and
for other puposes, was read a third time
and sent to the Senate for concurrence in
the amendments made thereto in this house
The engrossed bill making further ap
propriations for the military service ot the
United States for the year 1822, having
been returned to this house with sundry a
mendments, whereof the fir9t was that the
appropriation of d50,000 tor Fort Galhoun
should not be understood as confirming the
contract with Elijah Mix—and the said a
mendment being under considaration—
Mr. JFalworth moved that this House do
disagree to the amendment of the Senate,
This motion gave rise to a good deal of
debate. Finally, the amendment was dis
agreed to by a large majority; and the a
mendment to the same bill, appropriating
d90U0 for repairs of the Cumberland road,
was also disagreed to*

cargo of rice and cotton, was shipwrecked and
lost in the Texel on the 10th of March The
captain and all hands were saved. The ship
Ledaof Baltimore went ashore, and was after
wards condemned and sold. The ships Wil
liam Penn and Florida also suffered, but would
be saved. A number of Dutch and English
vessels were shipwrecked. The brig Martha
of New Yoik went ashore, and would probably
be lost The brig Swan of Newburyport was
totally lost.
MARINE COURT, APRIL 21.
Late vs. Cartwright.
Interesting decisions as to the captain’s right
on board a merchantman to chastise his sea
men ; also, of the mate on board the same,
and when and how he may exercise that
right.
This was an action of an assatilt and
battiry, alledged to have been committed
by captain Cartwright the defendant,
master of the ship South Carolina Packet,
recently from St Croix, upon Laye the
plaintiff, who was steward of the ship. It
appeared in testimony, that on the out
ward voyage the cook was sick, and Laye,
being the stewar , wa9 next in order as
signed by the captain to act in his place.
One morning he spoiled the breakfast
by his slovenly cookery ; burn*, the rice,
so that it was not eatable; and boiled the
mackerel and potatoes together in dirty
water and in a dirty kettle which had not
been cleaned after the preceding .day's
cookery The captain for his punishment
lashed him up by his thumbs to the main
shround, and there kept him about two
hours. Finny, the first witness, made out
the punishment to be severe and cruel ;
he said (he plaintiff could not stand fairly
upon bis feet, and was so far suspended
by his thumbs, that when taKen down they
were swollen to that degree he could not
use them, inconsequence ol the severe in
fliction. The exact truth of the case,
however, seemed to be that the plain
tiff was not so tightly bound by the thumbs
as to occasion any great degree of pain ;
and could stamf perfectly upright and free
upon his feet ; and that none of the crew
beard any complaint trom him whatever,
after he was let down, the single witness
aforesaid only excepted. It was also
alledged, that the captain committed
another assault and battery on the plain
tiff on the return voyage.
! fcDWAVD nuRR, i^sq. conaucieu me ue
fenee, and summed up to the jury in a
handsome style for captain Cartwright.—
Mr. Rose addressed the jury on the part
of the plaintiff. Mr Justice Swanton,
who presided at the trial, then proceeded
to recapitulate the testimony, and to
charge the jury upon the law of the case.
The questions to be settled by the jury,
his honor remarked, were, first, whether
the chastisement which the captain inflict
ed was unnecessarily severe and dispro
portionate to the offence. That the cap
tain of a vessel had a right to inflict chas
tisement on one oj his crew when the con
duct and due management of the vessel
rendered it necessary, Was not to be ques
tioned, and it would appear that in the
present case the conduct of the steward
was reprehensible and justified some chas
tisement. It was in evidence that the
steward of a vessel was bound, when call
ed upon by the captain in case of necess
ity, such a9 sickness and the like, to per
form the duties of the cook* and so, next
to him, in case of necessity, one of the
crew, or the crew in rotation The
steward here had certainly not done his
duty, and the captain, as he bad a right
to do. tied him up by the thumbs to pun
ish him. If, however* the punishment was
exce*-ive the jury mu«t find a verdict
against the captain. It bad also been
proved that the captain on a certain oc
casion had kicked the plaintiff after be
had ordered him, and while be was going
down the companion way; but it appear
ed, moreover, that as he was going down
the plaintiff loitered Stalked back to the
captain On this latter point, it might be
doubtful whether the plaintiff should not
recover, as the kicking, if they believed
the witness, did not appear to be necessa
ry; but the jury must decide according to
their own view of the case. The jury
retired about twenty minutes, and return
ed with a verdict of not guilty.
Another cause then came on of the same
plaintiff against ^Thomas Roland, the
mate, also for assault and battery and in
volved still nieer points of law. Lave,
in this case, alledged that the de*
fer.dant had in several instances during
the voyage violently (beaten him. There
was no testimony that Roland the mate
had struck him, in three several instances;
aHd had there keen an contradictory testi
mo«y, «r had th* jury placed (b« ci.n
rehance on the plaintir* wiwlwl
verdict for a considerable amount 1
have been founder the plaintiff
be bad been struck by the mate tber, ^
no question; and the point oftaw
was, whether the mate under thecit*
stances bad a right to chastise him
Mr. Rose, tor the plaintiff, cont^ ,
strenuously, that the mate had ner
right, in any circumstances whate?*?*
strike a band at alt; but must in all c
of his misconduct report him to the^
tain, who might chastise him, if the •
cumstances of the case demanded duiw
ment. ^ n,’“
Mr. Burr on the other band, com l
ded, and the court charged the jurv?
cordingly, that there certainly were?
cumstances in which the mate was ju?
fied »n striking a band, to enforce o(J%
eiice. For instance, when the captain*1*
sick or on shore, and it was necessary^
the mate io compel home duty to be doS
immediately. In such cases it wouldt
justifiable. So, even it the captain J
on board and the mate superintending!
deck, and some necessary duly on
the salvation of the ship depended
be done instantly. There the mate 11 j
( have a right to compel instant obedient
by blows. Generally however, his h.J,
remarked, that when the mate might bail
time, without danger to the vessel, to r*
port the delinquent or disobedient man
the captain, that be might deal with f.j,!
he would not be justified in inflicting p^'
isbment himself. The jury alter about
half an hour's absence came in with t£
verdict of six cents damages for the olajvl
tiff, and costs.
The details of the testimony in the fore.•
going cases are not particularly given. j
due understanding of the points ot In/
involved, i? all that is considered of es.*** '
tul importance- Many have been of opj.|
nion, that a master ot a merchant ves,|'
has no right in any case to flog a hand eg
board; and that the mate certainly p.v,,
could exercise such an authority Tti
law on these points, however, wil |*
found correctly given as above; and wfcr
It is added, that the able counsel tor the i
plaintiff himself conceded that such mu
the law, and did not for a moment atti-irr:
to contest it, so far at least as »egard>th
captain of a vessel, the public may luof^
