tion to the removal of said prosecutions to the district court of the

And on the question that the House do agree to said resolution,

The House proceeded to the consideration of the resolution moved by Mr. Sevier on the 14th of January, relative to suspended patents for lands in Arkansas; and the said resolution being again read, was agreed to by the House.

The House proceeded to the consideration of the resolution moved by Mr. Foot on the 14th of January, in relation to the organization of the Treasury Department; and the said resolution being again read, was agreed to by the House.

The House proceeded to the consideration of the proposition reported from the Committee on Roads and Canals, to amend the rules of the House; when it was

Ordered, That the further consideration of the said proposition be postponed until the 25th day of the present month.

The House proceeded to the consideration of the resolution moved by Mr. Mardis on the 14th of January; and, after debate, the hour elapsed, and the debate thereon was suspended.

The House then resumed the consideration of the motion made by Mr. Polk on the 17th of December, that the report of the Secretary of the Treasury, in relation to the removal of the deposite of the public funds from the Bank of the United States and its branches to certain State banks, be referred to the Committee of Ways and Means.

The question recurred on the instructions moved by Mr. McDuffie on the same day, and on the amendment to said instruetions, moved by Mr. Jones, of Georgia, on the 14th of January And, after further debate, The previous question was moved by Mr. Muhlenberg. And before it was ascertained that the previous question was, or was not, demanded by a majority of the members present,

A call of the House was moved by Mr. Chilton.

The Speaker decided that, after the previous question was moved, and before it was ascertained whether there was a second to the motion, (which, by the rules of the House, required a majority of the members present,) it was not in order to entertain a motion for a call of the House.

From this decision Mr. Chilton took an appeal to the House; and, after debate, Mr. Chilton withdrew his appeal.

Mr. Adams renewed the appeal, and, after further debate, withdrew it. The appeal was then renewed by Mr. Foster. And the question was put, Shall the decision of the Speaker stand as the judgment of the House ?
