The committee on the part of the house appointed to confer with the senate on their amendment to the treasury bill, being called on to report, Mr. Madison reported verbally, that the committee had met and conferred upon the subject, that the members on the part of the senate stated the reasons on which their amendment was founded, which not being satisfactory to the committee on the part of the house, they submitted certain propositions to the committee of the senate, who on their part offered none. Mr. Madison further reported, that it is the opinion of the committee on the part of the house, that it would not be right for the house to recede from their disagreement.
