M. H. Sibley, a member from the county of Ontario.” Mr. Patterson made a motion that the House should agree to amend the amendment to the said resolution, by inserting in lieu thereof the following: “That the conduct of the printer to this House, in publishing in the Albany Argus, with the apparent de#. of impugning the motives and conduct of a member of this ouse, a part of the answer of the cashier of the Bank of Ontario, to one of the interrogatories propounded to him by order of this House, when the whole of such answer was material to the proper understanding of the part so published, was improper and reprehensible.” Debates were had upon the said amendment of Mr. Patterson; and the question being put whether the House would agree thereto, it was determined in the negative.
