So the rules were not suspended.

On motion of Mr. Singleton, by unanimous consent, the bill of the House (H. R. 1526) to provide for deficiencies in the appropriations for the service of the government for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1878, and for prior years, and for other purposes, with the amendments of the Senate thereto, were taken from the Speaker's table, referred to the Committee on Appropriations, and ordered to be printed.

Mr. Throckmorton moved to suspend the rules so as to enable him to submit and the House to agree to the following resolution, viz:

Resolved, That the Committee on Military Affairs be instructed to in. quire into the expediency of mustering into the service of the United States two regiments of Texas Mounted Rangers, to be used for the protection of the Mexican and Indian borders of the State of Texas, to be continued in the service of the United States so long as the President may deem the service of such regiments necessary to the adequate protection of the frontiers of that State; said regiments to equal in strength the strongest cavalry regiments of the United States Army, and to be under the direction and control of the officers of the Army in command of the military district and department of Texas; the committee to report by bill or otherwise.

And the question being put, the motion was not agreed to, (two-thirds not voting in favor thereof.)

So the rules were not suspended. Mr. Knapp 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 President of the United Staces, by refusing the use of the Army in support of pretended governments in the States of South Carolina aud Louisiana, and thereby according to their people the right of local self-government in accordance with the Constitution, has faithfully performed his duty in that behalf, and is thereby justly entitled to the respect and confidence of the American people.

The yeas and nays were ordered on the said resolution. Pending which, Mr. Conger, at 11 o'clock and 25 minutes a. m., Monday, December 3, 1877, moved that the House adjourn.
