cohfideration, and come to a refojution
thereupon, whicb he delivered in at the
Clerk's table, where the fame was tw'ice

Resolved, That as it appears from the
communications of the Executive, that
the right of the United States to the free
navigation of tht Mifiifippi, is now the
fubjedt of negotiation with the Court of
Spain, and as it the interest of the Uni

come to an amicable*, adjuilment of the
right in that mode, rather than resort to
any means constitutionally belonging to
• the Legislature, no farther proceeding
(llould be had on the said
during the present fefilon of Congrtfs.
