Mr. H. said his object wastogue to the rublic the reasons why the Senate ar rived at its conclusion*. He knew of no rule tow which prohibited Senators from statu g what took piace in the private con sultatiors. bTit it was very poss'ble that Sen ators might misconstrue theremarks of each other. It w.ts therefore thought best that the eonsu!?ations should be open. He loofc??d upon the^privateeonsultatious as too much like star chambeF deliberations, line Sena tor had remarked by him that It was the tirst time he had ever heard of a proposition to make deliberations of a jury public, but he (Mr II.) did not regard the Senate in the light of a jury. He saw nothing at a' 1 to be gained by continuirg these private consul tat ions. Mr. Edmurds said he shou'.d re?m very much to see this motion adopted. He hud never heard in a civilized country ol Judges deilbe rating pibl'c. He thought it would lead to very b*d results. Another objection was that human nature was such that It was much harder for a man to change an opinion which lie had spoken in public ihan If had uttered it In private. It would be a grievous error in a great mauy respects to adopt this mottou of the Senator from Maine. He won Id be very loth to enter the debate'and harangues with his brother i(idg??s iur the amusement ol the galleries and the countfl. Opinions that Senators*expressed would be taken hold of and distorted, and conclusions would be drawn as to the results which would Dot be justified. Mr Conkllng pointed on? what he regaitKi as inconsistencies in the rules as they now stand. He alluded to the fact that on Fri day the managers and the counsel were pnr mitted to discuss an order adopted bv the Serate in the private consultation. If the order had been adopted in public no such thing as this would, of course, have bean peimitted. As now advised, he felt Inclined to vote for the motion of the Senator from Maice, for he did not see any reason what ever for the senate returning to liscussiu terlocutory questions. l ending discussion.

Mr Edmunds moved that the Senate re lire for consultation, but withdrew his mo tie>n temporarily at the request of Mr. Blair. Mr. Blair said since the region, on Friday last, he ha-! male examination into this iuestlon. He heptd the Senate would not reconsider its order.

Mr. Manager Lord said the managers re quested that four of the managers desired to be heard on the question or jurisd'etion in stead of three.
