He wished the committor simply to understand that tbe object of the appropriation hnd becu authorized, but that Ihe expenditure bad exoueded the amount authorized ; and tbe only question was whe ther Congre h would now foot tho bills, er would leave unpaid ihe parties who furnished tbe property and p*r fortned iho work. Mr. Nikiacs, idem ) of lnJ., as a member of the Com mil ee on Appropriation*, ha l beou deputed to examine tbe condition of tbe White Home, mtd be related bow dilapidated aud unfurnished it bad been found when the present occupants came into poesi si-ion, they having been torced to go into tbe city aud buy table liuon, bed linen, Ac. Finally debate was closed, and the committee wat brought to a vote on the proposition. MfrftnwtKiK, (rep.) of Ohio, moved ?o add a proviso that no further payment* should tie mode on any ac count for repairing or furnishing tbe Executive Mansion until such accounts were subm.timl to a joint commit teo of Congress and approved, which wax agrend to. Tbe question recurred on Mr. Price's motion to strike out I be clause as oineuded, which was rejected?yea* 44 nays 6& Jr. Costuya roae to movo a pro forma amendment, and addressed an inquiry to Mr. Stevens. Mr. Hill asked whether debate had not been closed by order of ths House. Mr. CoNSLiNG suggested that as Mr. Hill bad occupied one or two minutes of bis (Mr. Conkllng's) timo, tho gentleman from Indiana would please sit down and allow him (Mr. ConLllng) to tiu sb tbe remark he was about to make wbsa Interrupted. Mr. Hill, riring a few minutes afterwards, remarked to Mr. Conkiing that if be deaired to celebrate bis with drawal from this house by an exhibition of Insolence be was entitled to all ths credit he oould gel out or it. IIo bad not inteuded anything derogatory of the gen tleman's right to be heard, and he thought his remark very unbecoming. Mr. Conklinu declared that ha did not know what re mark the gentleman from Indiana bad referred to, but If be were talking merely for the pleasure of hearing the sound of bis own voioe he could understand his object. Tbe only remark be could think of was a suggestion of tbe gentleman from Indiana, after be bad oocupied two or three minutes of his time, thr.t he would go along if the question was settled. If tbe gentleman from Indiana was so thin skinned as to take otlfcnce at that he must regret it?that was all. Mr. IUdtokd remarked, laughingly, on the democratic side of tbe house, tbat the apology was ample, and should be acoepted. In tbe further consideration of tbe bill Mr. Schrkck called attention to tbe repetition of similar Items in all these appropriation bills to be expended by tbe Commie* sloner of Public Buildings, and declared tbat he did not believe either In the etticiency or honesty of that oflicer, and as to his poetical accomplishments be was as good an officer ss be was a poeL (Laughter.) )|r. Titaysr, (rep.) of Pa, moved to striks out tbe paragraph appropriating $60,000 to aid ths American Colonization Society in rurnislilsg conveyance and aup port to such parties as desired to emigrate to Liberia. Tbe time was, be said, when this scheme oommended itself to ths judgment and support of many prominent men; but time, which tested all thing*, bad shown the utter Impracticability of the scheme. He could not belter illustrate it than by relating an anecdote. At a Bute dinner given not long since in Liberia tbe Liberian flag was displayed, bearing tbe inscription, "Love of liberty brought us hsre." "Yes." remarked a high ollioer of that government, repealing the motto, -'and want of money keepe us here.*' (I-augliter.) Hs char acterized the scheme as having been a total failure. Mr Maynard opposed the motion lo strike out the ap propriation, and argued that tbe colonization of Liberia was a success, and not a failure. The preeent Attorney General of Liberia was a native of Tennessee. He had recently revUited this country, and tbe result was that from the town in which he (Mr. Maynard) lived some one hundred and fifty colored people had since emigrated thero. Mr. Dint moved to amend the clause by adding the proviso tbat no part of the appropriation should be ex? ponded until tbe existing laws of tbe republic of Liberia are repealed which exclude white men from suffrage on account of color.
