Mr. Hall, of Wetzel, was opposed to adjourning over at all. It was rumored that the Peace Conference was about to conclude its labors, and he thought no time should be lost, in view of that fact.
If the gentleman from Harrison (Mr. Carlile) wanted to hear Washington's Farewell Address, he would agree to go to his room and read it to him.
Mr. Dorman explained why he should vote against adjourning over to Monday.
A resolution was laid on the table yesterday in consideration of the absence of the gentleman from Jefferson, who would probably be in his seat on Saturday, when the resolution could be called up.
The amendment was adopted, and the resolution, as amended, passed.
A letter was read from Messrs. Ettenger & Edmond, inviting the members of the Convention to witness a trial of a steam fire-engine, of their manufacture, at 4 o'clock P. M.
On motion of Mr. Hallm, of Wetzel, the Convention adjourned, to meet again on Saturday at 12 o'clock.
