esolution day in the House, was signalized by the broaching of several new devices for saving the Union.
Mr. John Sherman, of Ohio, suggested a faithful observance, on all hands, of the requirements and compromises of the Constitution, with an immediate division of the territories into embryo States, with a view to their prompt admission into the Union.
Mr. John Cochrane, of New York, revived the old scheme of dividing the territories between Free and Slave Labor on the line of 36° 30′. Mr. English, of Indiana, proposed substantially the same thing.
Mr. Noell, of Missouri, proposed an abolition of the office of President of the United States, and a division of the Union into three districts, each to elect one member of an Executive Council, to which the functions of President should be intrusted.
He suggested, moreover, a restoration of the equilibrium between the Free and Slave States, by a division of several of the latter into two or more States each.
