§ Order for Committee read.
said, the Government had just set such a bad example by wasting the time of the House, that he thought it would hardly be fair to ask the House to go into Committee at that time to vote money. He was very much surprised at the course that had been taken by the Government; it was nothing but a waste of time. Although the agreeing to the proposed Vote in Committee of Ways and Means would be quite a matter of course, yet, by way of protest against the manner in which the Government had conducted Public Business that evening, he would feel it his duty to move the adjournment of the House, if the Motion were not withdrawn.
§ Committee deferred till To-morrow.
