m the House with an amendment allowing $2, instead of $2.50, per copy for the Code, was taken up, the amendment agreed to, and the bill passed. The joint resolution from the House relative to the sale of old muskets by the Executive to Joseph R. Anderson & Co., gave rise to a discussion, in which Messrs Brannon, Stuart, August, Carter, and others, participated. Mr. Brannon proposed a substitute.

On motion of Mr. Martin, the resolution was laid on the table. The engrossed bi
