Mr. Ellihu B. Washburne moved the previous question.
Pending which,
Mr. Colfax moved that the said resolution be laid upon the table.
Pending which,

Mr. Maynard made the point of order that the resolution must lie over under the rule, a member having, as he alleged, signified his ob. jection thereto before the demand for the previous question was made.

The Speaker overruled the said point of order.
From which decision of the Chair Mr. Maynard appealed.

On motion of Mr. Ellihu B. Washburne,
Ordered, That the appeal be laid on the table.
