Mr. Morrill gave notice that he would to morrow press the tariff bill to a final vote. _ Mr. Raymond asked leave to offer a resolu tion declaring that the establishment in imme diate proximity to the United States of a pow erful monarchy, under the support of a foreign nation, cannot he regarded otherwise than as being hostile to the peace and menacing the safety of the republic, and requesting the President to inform the House whether any remonstrance has been made by this Govern ment against the proposed consolidation of all the British American Provinces into a single confederacy under the imperial rule of an Eng lish prince: whether the consent of the Gov ernment has been given in any way to the con summation ot that project.
