the trade in the District was passed.
The motion to re-consider was earaiecl—Yeas

Mr. Smith, of In dinna, then moved to amend

out the preamble and all after the word Resol

to inquire and report what legislation is neces

Mr. Botts moved to lay the whole subject on
the table; and on this the yeas and nays were

Mr. Meade moved an amendment to the
