g, an excess of banking capital and distnbute'
• it among those requiring it, to place them
I;on an equal footing - with the former.
;• After discussion Mr. DAVIS, at the sug
t* • gestion, of _Mr. CONKLING, „Modified the
amendment by,specifying the. amount of
withdrawal from excess Of twenty toil
The debate was continued, during which
Mr. HENDERSON„ urged the impolicy of
contraction; arguing that the business of the
country rather called for expansion. He
questioned the propriety of a speedy return
to specie payments. • The cry t , for it was a
myth and a humbug. II would not last
five months if it were resumed. Until me
chanical and agricultural prosperity had
built up foreign balances in our Savor, it
was idle to talk about specie payments.

they should adjonrtr :without giving an'

give rise be a rude spirit of dissatisfaction.:
If his amendinent was adopted, those States'

reported by the-Com
mittee on Crimmerce making appropria
tions for.the repair, preservation and core ;
pletion of certain public works:
Mr. ELIOT made a five minutes speech in
defence of the generalprinciples of the bill.
- Mr. WASHEURNE, of Illinois; ihoverito
strike out the paragraph, - appropriating*
540,000 for the improvement 'of the Wis
consin river, and argued ~ that the 'river
could,not be made navigable. to steamboats
under it cost' of three millions. Ih fact the
project of making it navigable had been
practically abandoned several years ago. .
He had been in faVor of-liberal appropria
tions for river and harbor improvements
when there was money in the Tiefrisury;
but times had changed and he confessed
his views on. the subject of making appro
priations for mere local improvements had
been much modified. - •
Mr. ALLISON replied to the remark of
Mr. Washburne, and denied his statement
that the WiEeollSila River could not be made
prictitilly, • navigable by 'steinibtiats. j He
regarded it as the most important item in
the bill, beca s ime it affecte,dthe ,great grain

cated the appropriation, and stated the

- Mr. WOODWA.RD43aidthe trouble iilinut

advaatited , thettapprapriation,
and replied to the remarks of Mr. Wash
burne of Illinois, contending - the river
coulebe made navigable all the year round
with inederate'expendittire. -
Mr. SCHOFIELD argued that a smal4
river like the Wisconsin, - in a single - State,
should be improved by local enterprise,
just all -the Monongahela m Pennsylrtiria
had been. " - ^A I •
Mr. HOPKINS argued in favor of the ap
tropriation, and to show the importance of
he proposed improvement in cheapenin
the transportation of agricultural products, g
he claimed the river was' capable of being

_:..Mr. FARNSWORTEI suggested thpt.Roolt
River, which tibwelietiveen Wisconsin - and,
Jalinms. was a more feasible route between'
the. Mississippi River triidthe-Lakes..„
Mr. DELANO remarked that the bill ap
propriated over $6,000,000, and that, amount
was:*ottly tinAntaljmst-pf thnAmmense
sumswhich the'great sclieinei of Internal
improvement would render neceasnry. He
therefore „thought _ this „expensive. policy
skald be :left to a futnre oiXiasion; when
thelcotintrv'mibuld be in ibettiWankdition.
Mr. ELIOT defended the special item
under debate,' and the general principles of
the bill. ; The abandonment of internal im
provemets he regarded aethe most disas
trous policy that could- be,pprsued. The
object of this particular Wen was to open :a
water communication between Green Bay
and thS Mississippi 'by way. of Fox and
Mr. PILE advocated the genera policy•
of Internal improvements. What the Ms- .
sisslppi mod needed was cheap tnuterior
talon, and for that the water routes would
have to be , relied upon. , He thought the
House should not hesitate at appropriating
$40,000t0, enabli the improvement to be
made by General Warren. ' • -
Mr. trOODWARD declared himself op
posed to all these appropriations for. inter
nal improvements, and argued that the im
proveraeota ;should he made...by local
etiterpriset 'of -bY State , titithorlty. The.
Wisconsin river should be improved% that
way as the Susquehanna had be‘n.
Mr. ELDRIDGE asked. him whether
there were not appropriations in this very
UM 'for' the' improvement' of thelinsque
Mr. WOODWARD said he did not dnow
that fact, but, if there were,„he would vote
against'? them on - prinditler. While the
genius of the House was tested in endeav
oring to devise means to secure money out
of thil- Pe 9 A 9 , t 9 , I4ty 11/e bondholders, "via9ynrypotgleere for9lgners; he pretest

bill; which; ill only embraiter- whisky hrtd•
tobacco, can be drawn up and presented to
the House in a nay, or two. It is the :inten
tion of the Committee to embrace in the
new bill all the leading features of , thos o
sections in the general.bill which relate to` "
whisky. and tobacco.. These' alone coyer
about one hundred and five closely printed
pages, and go into an entire revision of , the
method of collecting the tax on these two
articles. The new bill ordered by _ the
House will probably cover one :hundred
closely printed pages. In.view` of this face
-it is not improbable that the bill will not
be reported to the House before thnhegin
ning of next week, and then, in the opinion
of many Members, will be diseussed nearly
two weeks before it can be passed. - 2 •
