Mr. Breckenridge called for the yeas and nays, and they were ordered; and being taken, resulted — yeas, thirty-seven; nays, five; as follows:
Yeas--Messrs. Anthony, Bingham, Browning, Carlisle, Chandler, Clark, Collamer, Cowan, Dixon, Doolittle, Fessenden, Foot, Foster, Grimes, Hale, Harlan, Harris, Howe, Johnson of Tennessee, King, Lane of Indiana, Lane of Kansas, Latham, McDougall, Morrill, Pomeroy, Rice, Sherman, Simmons, Sumner, Ten Eyck, Trumbull, Wade, Wilkinson, Wiley, Wilmot, and Wilson--thirty-seven.
Nays--Messrs. Breckenridge, Bright, Kennedy, Pearce, and Powell--five.
So the amendment was agreed to, and the bill passed.
In the House, Mr. Stevens moved to take up the bill for consideration; but Mr. Crisfield, of Maryland, objected.
Mr. Stevens appealed to him to withdraw his objection.
He thought if Congress should adjourn without passing the bill, it would cause very great inconveniences and perhaps create the necessity for an extra session.
