was resumed. Mr. Greer said he was sorry
that the debate on - the day previous had
been so personal• and he moved that the

champion and keeper of the new Governor,-
objected, and raised the point of• order that
the nominations, under the rules, must be
considered until finally disposed of; This
point being *submitted to the Sepate,, was
for the tithe, sustained, by a vote •of 24 to .

' v ictory was for a very brief period. The
vote being thus forced on the confirmation,
was not what the youthful Senator wanted,
but he was coinpelled to accept the. situa
