substitute. Is the Committee ready for the question? Voices.--"Question — question." Mr. Wise asked if the motion in this form would preclude another motion to strike out and insert. The Chair.--Certainly not. Mr. Wilson, of Harrison, had something which he desired to offer. He moved that the Committee rise. The Chair,--The motion is not in order.--The Committee has resolved to sit till 2 o'clock. Mr. Scott, of Fauquier, desired to present some views to the Commiten upon the motion to strike out. Mr. Price, of Greenbrier, and Mr. Conrad, of Frederick, appealed to the member from Preston to withdraw his call for a division, which he consented to do. Mr. Clemens, of Ohio, said, as the gentle-from Harrison, who offered the competing proposition, was absent, he hoped the Committee would withdraw the substitute, by general consent. This course was objected to. Some interrogatories were here propounded by Mr. Wise as to which report of the

He would now say that those who voted against his substitute would live to regret it. He might, as in the former case, be subjected to years of obloquy, but would again trust to time to vindicate his position. He hoped gentlemen would make specifications. They had heaped abuse upon the propositions, but he had been
nging together such as contain nearly equal numbers of white inhabitants. It will be found that in every one of the cases adduced below, (and we will extend the remark without fear of contradiction that in every case which can be adduced at all.) the amount of taxes paid by the slaveholding county is more than double, often treble, that paid by the county having few or no slaves. In each couple given, the first is a Western, the second an Eastern county: CountiesWhites.Taxation Harrison13,182$15,192 Halifax11,06651,617 Difference paid by slave labor in Halifax$36,425 Randolph4,7938,592 Rappahannock5,01818,632 Difference paid by slave labor10,040 Highland3,8008,499 King & Queen3,80117,997 Difference,&c., &c9,498 Giles6,0519,485 Buckingham6,04125,889 Difference, &c.,&c15,884 Ritchie6,8098,837 Mecklenburg6,77758,751 Difference,&c.,&c27,914 Raleigh3,2913,987 Sussex3,11814,075 Difference, &c., &c 10,088 Tyler6,4887.213 Nelson6,65621,197 Difference, &c 14,954
