Mr. Sbepberd moved to amend by adding? ,l And in caae tbe reduction Is not made on or before May 1, 1802, we do hereby ask the chartering of a new company." Mr. Mohun said he was not sure that Congress had the riuht to reduce the Dries of was He thought tbe surest way would be to ask tbe chartrr for a new company, and let them enter into competition. Mr. Morgan argued In defence of the G;is Company, and stated that under all the dlsadvantage* of tbe year, he thought tbe company entitled to an advance, rather than reduction. We might with propriety ask hereafter for a reduction, but this was not tbe proper time Mr. Edmondston declared bis opposition to all monopolies With regard to the reduction that nau ihtii hjbuf .o i?.i i.j, u wan no reauction in fact. He had kept an account of bia gas expenses, and found them greater under the #3.15 rate than under the 94 per 1,000 feet. Tbe reason be thought waa that tbe Company used the meanest kind of coal, and In order to get alight consumers were forced to let on all the t;as. Mr. Morgan attributed the Inferiority of coal to the fart that the sources from whence they obtained the best^ere In secesh,and they were rut riff frnm lh?t ?nnnl? Mr. Shepherd thought the gas company a great monopoly, and although be bad some very warm friends la that company, hts Ju.y to the public urged the conrte be abould purine.

Mr. Sbcpbera opposed tbe ubslitate ?
