HOUSE OF KEPHESENTATirns. February 22. rrocecdiiigs tlih day. Mr. Montgomery offered the following resolution, which was agreed to: Resolved, That a committee be appointed to inquire what compensation, if any, ought to be niade to captain Pike and his companions, for their services in exploring the Mississippi river, and for their late expedition to the source of the Osage, Askanans, and La-I'lale rivers, together with their tour through New-Spain and that the committee have leave to report by bill or otherwise.

The house then proceeded to consider the motion made on Saturday last by Mr. D. R. Williams, to re-commit the bill in addition to the act supplementary to the act lading an embargo. FOREIGN INn.TJENCli.

Mr. Johnson rose to reply to the observations of Mr. Qsrtltnier on Saturday respecting the embargo. lie declared himself a friend to freedom of debate, but said that the charges made against the house ought not to be excused. It had been said (he observed) that this house guicHd by an invisible hand that, like the council of five hundred, they whited for the word of command and obeyed it that they were under foreign influence that they were riv-clling the chains which were to bind us under the dominion of the French emperor and that they were mere automata.

Mr. J. considered such assertion as a base si.akdeh. He said this upon the most mature consideration, and should not retract it and if the feelings of any gentleman were wounded try this declaration, he should not consider himself guarded by privileges or by the canopy which covered him. Mr.

Rhea spoke also at length in reply to Mr. Gardeniert but his observations couM not be distinctly heard. Mr. Newton spoke in justificatio.i of the embargo measure, declaring it the wisest measure which could have been adopted. The speaker observed, that the subject before the house was, a motion to recom'- roil the bill.

Mr. G. W. Campbell said that if the charge made against the government, of being under foreign influence, was true, it ought to be proved and made public, in order that a change might take place in the public councils and if false, the author of it ought to be that disgrace and infamy which he deserved. The accuser or accused must be guilty there was no medium in the case and the nation ought to know the truth.

He asserted that the charge was an infamous falsehood. Mr. C. dwelt at considerable length on the embargo measure, which he highly approved. Mr.

Bibb said that although he had voted against the embargo, he had disclaimed the d.arge of French influence. Mr. Montgomery said that (he house had adjourned on Saturday in order to give the gentleman from New-York time to substantiate his charge. His to do it, was a proof ol'ils falsehood. Another method of proceeding had at first suggested itself to him but when he considered the futility of the charge, and the source from which it proceeded, he thought the best course for the house to pursue, woul'l be to trent it with scornful contempt.

The tjuestion was then taken on recommitting the bill 10 the' committee of and lnaiiufactui rs, and it was agreed to. The house went into committee of the whole on the bill for the classification of the militia. This bill has al.euuy undergone great deal of discussion in the hmise. After some discussion, the committee rose, reported progress, and obtained leave to sit again. Gen.

Wilkinson. Mr. Uowan observed, that he was not in the house this morning when a resolution hud been olfered to inquire into the propriety of rewarding captain Pike, for his services in exploring the western aters, Uc. but that having since seen it, he considered it hia duty to state to the house that had iotue time back, received a letter from Mr Billinger, of New Orleans, informing him that captain Pike, after his return from his expedition, had expressed great dissatisf tioti. at gen.

Wilkinson, for having blown up Burr's project, lie (Pike) having beets concerned in it, nnd that he had been dispatched by Wilkinson to conciliate, 'ci'i'lain Indian tribes, and make-arrangements fn- its execution. Rowan said he had not altogether in this infci'malinn, but that he had. since seen Col. JJaliinger (a bivther of the former, a very respectable man, residing in Kentucky) who had declared to him that his brother had stated the same thing to hint. And could not, he observed, reconcile itto himself to withhold the information from the house.

Mr. J. Montgomery observed that he could give the gentleman the most satisfactory assurance that captain Pike, had acted under the orders of the war department. Mr. Rowan replied, that he was acquainted with captain Pike, and respected him, but he had thought it his duty to state this information to the house.

Quinceyt presented a petition of John and Samuel Derby, of Salem and John Prince, of Boston, praying that they may be allowed to dispatch a vessel' in ballast, under such restrictions as congress may think proper to prescribe, for the purpose of conveying to the United u.e sch'r Hope, of Salem, which they state had arrived at Sierra Leone in October last, with a valuable cargo of gold dust, ivory, gums, and bills of exchange. Referred To a committee of commerce and manufactures. And then the house adjourned. This was, firobalily, a resolution to expel Mr. Gardenier.

February 22. Mr. Van Rensselaer, offered the following resolution, which was agreed to Resolved, That a committee be appointed for the purpose of enquiring into the expediency of continuing ir. force the act entitled," an act to extend jurisdiction in certain cast3 to judges of the state courts," and that the commute have leave to report by bill or otherwise. The speaker laid before the house a communication from the gov.

of North-Carolina, notifying that John Culpepper had been again elected a iieinber of lbs House of Representatives for that Referred to the committee of elections. On motion, of Mr. Dawson, the house proceeded to consider the resolution some days ago submitted by him, respecting an adjournment of Congress. Mr. Rowan the gentleman from Virginia to give some information on this subject.

The business for which congress had assembled had never yet been before them but was expected that a diiiclocure of the state of our foreign relations would soon be made. He did not wish our enemies to suppose that congress were about to adjourn in the present stale of our affairs. Mr. Smilie said, that to talk of adjourning now, would be to allow that they had done nothing during the present session. Mr.

Dawson said, that gentlemen did not appear to understand the resolution. Its object was to gain information on the subjects on which they had been assembled. Congress had been in session be-twean four, and fivr months, and had done little more than build castles iu the air He entreated the house to look at the lute occurrence at Coppenhageu, and to the still more recent occurrence at Lisbon to similar occurrences in the West-Indies and if lie was rightly informed, hostile preparations were ac-Uialy going on even on this continent There were several very important before the house, bills for raising armies and organizing the militia he wished the house to do something of material importance, instead ef wasting days, weeks and months 011 subjects of little consequence. Mr. Rhea moved to postpone the resolution.

Mr. Lyon contended that tbcv? vjj very little private business the house and that if the time had been trifled away, it was for wauvof infora-thiS from the president know v. hat to do. lie was anxious to go home ag any man in the house but he did not wish to adjourn in the present state of our affairs. He wir.Iud to ii.ll his cor stituents what he had been cuing.

If he went -home now, they would ale him, Have you made peace with the British NV." ut have you done with the Embargo: it on yet:" I know nothing about it." Air. Hibb said that if the house went on they had done for tome lime pnsl, it would be impossible ever to rdjourn. He understood the object of th move!
