fices of Senators from Virginia were vacant. Mr. Garnett had a distinct recollection that, when Mr. Underwood presented his credentials to the United States Senate, Mr. Sumner said he would as soon think of admitting a Senator from the town council of Alexandria. Mr. Joynes withdrew his motion to lay on the table, at the request of Mr. Garnett, who submitted the following: Resolved, That the resolution proposing to go into the election of United States Senators be referred to a joint committee of five on the part of the House and three on the part of the Senate, with directions to inquire whether the election of Messrs. Underwood and Sugar was in accordance with the Constitution and laws of Virginia, and whether they hold said offices in accordance therewith, and whether said offices are not now vacant. On motion of Mr. Pendleton, the resolution was laid upon the table. On motion of Mr. Baylor of Augusta, the House, at three o'clock, P. M., adjourned.
