Resolved, That the Committee of Ways and Means be authorized to employ a doorkeeper or assistant messenger, to be paid out of the contingent fund of the House of Representatives, who shall receive the same compensation as is now paid to the messengers appointed by the Door. keeper.

Mr. Wood moved to reconsider the vote last taken, and also moved that the motion to reconsider be laid on the table; which latter motion was agreed to.

Mr. Wilson submitted the following preamble and resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Post-Office and Post-Roads and ordered to be printed, viz:

Whereas it is understood that a few successful bidders for contracts for carrying the mails have been awarded large numbers of contracts, and that they have in many instances given substantially the same securities for the performance of their contracts, which securities are inadequate to the aggregate liability of each of the said bidders; and whereas it is further understood that they have sublet many of those contracts to other parties, and that the subcontractor is at the mercy of the first contractor for his compensation: Therefore,

Be it resolved, That the Committee on the Post-Office and Post-Roads be, and it is hereby, directed to report a bill in which provision shall be made securing to the said subcontractor compensation direct from the Government for his services in the Postal Department.

Mr. Wilson also, by unanimous consent, submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee of Accounts, viz :

Resolved, That the Clerk of this House be, and he is hereby, directed to pay, out of the contingent fund under his control, to William M. Pat. ten, $100, as pay for his services as messenger at the north door for the month of October, 1877.

Mr. Vance, by unanimous consent, submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the same committee, viz:

Resolved, That the Clerk of the House of Representatives be, and he is hereby, instructed to pay J. M. Hines the sum of $90.67, for services as messenger of the House of Representatives from January 10, 1877, to March 4, 1877, and from October 15 to November 1, 1877.

Mr. Dunnell, (the rules having been suspended for that purpose,) from the Committee on Commerce, to which was referred the bill of the House (H. R. 287) to change the name of the port of entry of the district of the Teche, in Louisiana, froin Brashear to Morgan City, reported the same without amendment.

And the question being put, viz:
Shall the rules be suspended and the bill passed ?

And it was decided in the affirmative, (two-thirds roting in favor thereof.)

So the bill was passed.

Ordered, That the Clerk request the concurrence of the Senate in the said bill.

Mr. Mills moved that the rules be suspended, so as to enable him to submit and the House to agree to the following resolution, viz:

Resolved, That the Committee of Ways and Means be instructed to so revise the tariff as to make it purely and solely a tariff for revenue, and not for protecting one class of citizens by plundering another. Mr. Mills demanded the yeas and nays; which were ordered : Yeas, 27; nays, 56. Mr. John H. Baker made the point of order that a quorum had not voted on the said demand.

The Speaker overruled the point of order, on the ground that a quo. rum was not necessary to order the yeas and nays.

Mr. Olymer, at 2 o'clock and 25 minutes p. m., moved that the House adjourn; which motion was not agreed to.

Mr. Clymer moved to reconsider the vote by which the yeas and nays were ordered.

Mr. Burchard made the point of order that it was not in order to have the yeas and pays on a motion to reconsider the vote by which the yeas and nays were ordered.

The Speaker overruled the point of order, on the ground that the mo. tion to reconsider could be made on any motion, whether carried in the affirmative or negative, except the motion to adjourn ; and that, if carried in the affirmative, the question would immediately recur on order. ing the yeas and nays, and, if then ordered by one-fifth of the members voting, a further motion to reconsider that vote would not be in order,

And the question being put, viz:

Will the House reconsider the vote by which the yeas and nays were ordered ?

( Yeas .................... 31 And it was decided in the negative, Nays.....

...... 110 Not voting...............
