Pierpoint, Porter and Foster, the mot urn to lay was lost, nnd the pioposilion to amend was resumed, when Mr Kiiwmau expros.-od Ins views upon Ihe subject, and gave hi" opinion that 1 lie duty of electing Slate Treasurer, still devolved upon the general assembly. Mr Porter regarded the question us strictly a consti tutional one ; and, the provisions of the coiisl itiition, in his insinuation, had been complied with on the part of the general as-cmbly. and the olfico now being vacant that vncincv should be filled by Evoculivu appointment, lor Ihe present political year, and was therefore in favour of the amend merjl. M r E iton said, there was nothing but a plain common sense view of tho iib ect ri quired, and he thought the senaior from Washington Mr Kinsman) had tu ken thai view.
