Resolved, That the House now proceed to consider an article published in the State paper of this day, headed “The Bank investigation and the Bank attorney,” with a view to determine whether any action of this House is proper in relation thereto.

Thereupon, Mr. Wager made a motion that the House should agree to amend the said resolution, by striking out all after the word “Resolved," and insert “That no action of this House is called for in relation to the pablication in the Albany Argus of yesterday, under the head of “The Bank investigation and the Bank attorney," to which the attention of the House was directed by the Hon. 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 design of impugning the motives and conduct of a member of this House, 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.
