So the second resolution was agreed to.
And it was

Resolved, That Hon. Francis P. Blair, jr., is entitled to a seat in the thirty-sixth Congress as a representative from the first congressional district of Missouri.

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

The said Francis P. Blair, jr., then appeared, was sworn to support the Constitution of the United States, and took his seat in the House.

Mr. Boyce moved, at 5 o'clock p. m., that the House adjourn; which motion was disagreed to.

Mr. Hickman having called up the report of the Committee on the Judiciary upon the message of the President of the United States of the 28th of March last, protesting against certain proceedings of the House of Representatives

Mr. Crawford made the point of order, that inasmuch as the said report had been made the special order for yesterday and to-day, "after the expiration of the morning hour,'' it was not in order at this time (the “morning hour”' not having yet commenced) to consider the same.

The Speaker overruled the said point of order on the ground that the committee had authority to report any time, which, under the precedents, carries with it the right to consider at any time the report when made.

From this decision of the Chair Mr. Crawford appealed.

And the question being put, Shall the decision of the Chair stand as the judgment of the House ?

It was decided in the affirmative.
So the decision of the Chair was sustained,

The House having proceeded to the consideration of the said report,

The Speaker stated the question to be on agreeing to the following resolution, viz:

Resolved, That the House dissents from the doctrines of the special message of the President of the United States of March 28, 1860;

That the extent of power contemplated in the adoption of the resolutions of inquiry of March 5, 1860, is necessary to the proper discharge of the constitutional duties devolved upon Congress;

That judicial determinations, the opinions of former Presidents, and uniform usage sanction its exercise; and

That to abandon it would leave the executive department of the government without supervision or responsibility, and would be likely to lead to a concentration of power in the hands of the President, dangerous to the rights of a free people.

Pending which,
Mr. Hickman moved the previous question; which was seconded.
Pending the question on ordering the main question,
Mr. James Craig moved that the whole subject be laid upon

the table; which motion was disagreed to. The question was then put, Shall the main question be now put ?
