Mr. WOOD, of New Yorki presumed that
the objection taken by the gentleman from
Pennsylvania hadreference to making the;
replication what it really ought to be. Ile.
(Mr. 'Wood) thought this was a question
which the Court might.determine., - It was
very desirable, -however,'that- whatever'.l
course the House should take, it should ex-. 1
ercise the utmost care,'and should reserve
to itself the right to instruct,qnd direct the
Managers. He would take 43iCeptlerri, to
the phraseology of the replication, which •
declares to be "in the name of all the peo
ple ~of the, United , States.'.' We know,.
