He (Mr. M.) voted in the Legislature, at thcion. He was in favor of peace. He then proceeded very briefly to allude to some further remarks of the gentleman from Halifax, closing by saying that he had never, like him, owned sugar plantations at the South; if he had, it might have some inflr than either. Until to-day, he had stood comparatively alone; but since he had heard the remarks of the gentleman from Halifax, he did not despair. He therefore demanded to be heard upon this question. He cared not how long it took, in these tim

The report of the Committee was far preferable, and although it did not meet his views, he would show, if the courtesy were extended to him, wherein the difference consisted. Mr. Harvie, of Amelia, as a member of the committee, expressed his entire dissent from the report of the majority.
