Mr Wright of S. opposed the bill, reminding the House last year the speakei's lablr was loaded with memorials ngaint the very acts which this Ivll wmild r store'. While thcie had,' as vet, been no lime pro perly to test Iho law of Inf year, which had imposed burdens on lliu uniform militia, this htl would imposo new burdens.

Mr Peck said ho voted for tho act nf Iat year, rely ing upon the judgement of rcFpectablr and worthy men, hut ho was satisfied there was rvils in it which ought to bo remedied, and to remedy which he had brought in a bill. If the question comes to the noint to take the act of last year without amendment, or repeal it, ho must vote to repeal. Mr Pope moved to make the: h ll the order for Mon day niortiing nppod hy Mr. Crowley, stipoorted bv Mr I'one.nnd lost, 125 to 53. Mr Patrick suggested that thrro was an implied contract by the act of last year to exempt members of uniform companies afler S years srvico, and he wish ed lo know how this difficulty was to he arranged.

Mr Vilas sustained the motion, on tho ground that all should he equally bound to do duty, and be liable lo tho same penalty for not doing it. Jlr Peck upposiil it. The laws require judges, etc. In pel form cerlnm duties which they tiny not bo able to perform if requited to do military duly. In his opinion, such persons should be exempted on pay ing nn cq 'ivnlcnt. Jlr Stacy concurred with Mr Peck, nnd tool; oc casion lo say that he wished 10 require llicsnextmpts to pay a fair proportion lo sustain the mililii, both because it wa- just, nnd because ho wished to lorce them to pay some regard to, and lake some interest in the nnl.l.a. Then, ho trusted, the too long wretch ed treatment of this hrancn of tho public service would be corrected, and a satisfactory and just mil itia system hondiipted. Jlr Davis eif N. mid the commit'ee entertained views similar to thofeof JlrPecki nnd MrVilis re plie'd, insisting that if these persons were lo bo ex empted, then jurors and parties and witnesses in suits must on the tamo ground be exempted. He was for 1,1111100011 unon a common level, nnd he was io in lavor of allowing the rich to pay for an exemption that in every cose where time had been given, the le gislature hod commuted, savo one anil lhat was a caso where Ihc prisoner proved to bo Innocent. There was no danger in leaving this to the legislature, for they could bo Instructed by the people if justieio re quired. He was also surprised by an objection that this amendment would tender punishment less cer tain. It wns not so, as tho power to pardon wns not given ) it was to commute, nnd either death or solita ry confinement would he the certain punishment, un less the accused proved lo be innocent ) niiel hero ho suggested Iho efluct of commutalion under Iho old Hw, which had been lo jml tho murderer, not in soli tary confinement, hut stdo by side wiih persons con victed of minor offences. He denied the right to in flict the riunUbmcnt ofdeath, allcdgitig that the direc tion to Noah proved ton much, if construed as a com mandthat it would bring to the gallows the maniac or the soldier who should slay a man. or even one who should accidentally kill another. Ho believed that all history showed that crimes decreased as III? rigor of puuishnieiit hail been sofieneel, and instanced ancicn,! Rome, Russia, Tuscany, Helgium, and within the Union, .Maine, whero capital punishment had been either abolished or restricted. Mr S irgeant said ho was alarmed at the progress of crime, ami thejprevali'nco of what had well bceo term ed a sicklysentimentnf sympathy for convicted crim inals, and ho demanded tho nutliniity for the state ment thai crime had diminished with the diminution ;f the rigor of punishment. At the beginning the pun iihinctit of dentil was universal nnd murders rnrc) hut now, when the spirit of amelioration has come upon us, every newspaper is freighted with hotrid out rages and murders. At the very point whero these outrnges were most frequent and life leat secure nt tho South and West theto tho punishment was not rigorously inflicted. This incrcaso of crime wns alarming, and he would warn Iho-e who believed in the authority of the statu to inflict tho punishment of death, that it was no time lo relax. Flooded ns the country was, and is to be, with a forcian population, embracing many who fear nothing hut Ihn law, and are to be checked only hy legal restraints, this seemed to be tho time ralhcr for nn rcased rigor. Jlr Rend also opposed thcaineuduicnt, tegardingit as substantially embracing the al diiion of capital pun ishment. In this view, he thought it proper to bring lo mind what the laws niw are the requisites for conviction, such ns the verdict of one jury to indict, nud another to try, to which the accused had so un limited a right to challenge that ho muhl bo said lo choose ln own jurors thorough examination of evi dence on both si les with strict rules of evidence to fa vor the prisoner j and all in Iho presence of an im partial judge, who will nt last instruct the jury that on a reasonable doubt about tho question of guilt, the prisoner must be discharge I. Mvery advantage w.a given to the murdeicr. It wns now proposed to give nnolher trial bv tho legislature, which coulel eln away with the punishment. Woulel that body patiently in vcs ignlonll the evidenco and calmly and deliberately weigh ii? He thought not. The legislature came for other purposes, was pressed with other business, nnd would bo liable to elccidr the: great question according to the feelings of tho moment or, n had been well expressed the other day hy tho scnalnrfrnm Windsor (Mr Dutlon,) by Iho tears and entreaties of friends. This liability to let the murderer escape was gteat, nnd he could not b it f-e-l, thai in the decision of ibis question the lives of his fellow citiz"ns weie planed in their hands. That feeling prompted him 'o insist that the murderer should ho p iniahed, and ho wouid n! inust hazard tho opinion, lint the abolishment of the punishment of death would be unconstitutional. That instrument recognizes tho punishment and at least impliedly commands it, by jirohibiling the Oovcrnor from pardoning in capital cases. He feared that n re laxation of punishment would encourage tho crime, with their money for in that case, wo might come to , nnd ho elcnied that other countries had ever succeeded tin point when dollars only would be louiiJ to eieicnu m their experiments orat'Olishing tho punishment, theeonntry.

Nothing surely could bo lost hy elelay. Ho believed that tho spirit of Iho ago tended to the imligitionol penal statutes, and that ill this case legislation was behind pub'io opinion. .Mr Cults said ihe Senator from Cnlcdoaii e rre-d in supposing thai the old blatuto deprived the convict of the njhl of asking for a reprieve or a commutation of punishment, liolh were grat.trii, nnu tune tor tne exe rcise nf this uower be behove-d had always been civeii. this tun. without tne nmenuintni, icfctoreu Ihculd law, and tbero wes ihereforo no reason for the nuendnient. as there certain v had been no call for It, Thciiuesiion. then, rrsul veil ilselt into i ns shall Ihe rcslminsts against murder be lessened ! shall the murucrer no evecii'eu, or leu 10 somo oiner puuisii' ment. which an excited and perhaps capricious legis Inline might designatel He would not so leave that cri'tie. Mr Plumb believed thrro w-rre two sides to ibis question: ono was, whether punishment should be diitcled by n rapncioits Icgislaiuie; an I the other by the court, unuern veruict iniiiietiecu pernnps oy a ca pricious and excited inuliilude. Il had been said that if punishment was delayed, public excitement and in dicnatmn would cease; and this was ono strong ten son why ho went for the amendment. When the public bt'-eanjo calm, it was the very time to reviso the trial and secivhether it was fair. This privilege was conceded in civil suits, and when it was denied in cap ital cases, it really seemed as if thero yasan ilTort lo burn-on tho lakinir of life, lie believed it safe to trust tho legislature in such cases, wlnrdi would be cotnnoseel of men from niiartersunnfFectceT bv the ex citement thai would prevail in tho neighborhood "fthe nlledired murder. He also denied tho scriptural au thority to tnkobfot in bis opinion, the language used lo Noah was not u command, and he believed the spi rit of the' New Testament was nil acainst it. He ho ned the timo would soon com when the llxeeuiive 1 would not I r obliged to say to the legislature that it ' .Z a ii ... .,. . i i.

This amendment was an amelioration of the punishment, and n-t thai ground ho was tor it. Jlr Duller urjjcl thai there hsd been na demand by the people for the repral of that law, which had now been in the statute book a year. There were no peti tions for it i no instructions to senators: and ho in ferred therefore that the pecplo were sntisfieel and ihe Senate bounil to let tho law stand, unh-ss good rea sons could ho shown for a e hinge, Tho Governor had pren'ntcd tho question nf repeal or revision ; and by this amendment a revision would be made. It had been said that it was unneceasiry, because tlieGiv-e-rnor had the pardoninr power under the old law. So tlio liovernnrnid not tinnK.nnei no roneiirrol with Jiim. The Governor hsd tho power la rentievo; but ho wns not bound In reprieve. Another objection was thai iho Legislature wa In net ; hat this amendment psic no new power to the I.oiivlaliirc.

The differ cnci) is, thnl under Ih'nld law, if the Governor would not reprieve-, tho criminal might bo executed before the legislature should silt while bv this mivnelmsut, ihrrxfcurion must Ifl poslpnneal bevon I one session a' Icait.

Mr Harrington called up this bill, the nucstlon I c ing on the amendment, which provides that tho act shall not toko effect until ono venrfrom 1st Nov, next. Jlr Harrington said ho still thought the bi'l could best be judged hy trying it, but he would yield lo the strong elcsiro for tho amendment. The amendment was ngrretl lo. Mr Whitlcmore supported the bill briefly, urging two advantages lobe gained by it i the first was that ample lime would be given to tho Supremo e ourt to examine cases thoroughly nnd adjudge them after full and deliberate examination of authorities. The want of this time, nnd tho necessity ol making hasty deci sions under the present system, was a serious evil, which this bill would remedy. The second advan tage was, that by allowing adotirncd terms, the busi ness of the court would be nil done, nnd well done. Ho believed thceffect of this bill would ho to give more consistency and solidity to Ihe decisions ofour courts. Jlr Kellogg said that ns bis nmendment had been ndopted, ho should support tho I ill. Mr Hibbard again urged his objections, which were noticed tho other dav, more particularly detailing the difficulty in applications to the chancellor for injunc tions, owing to the rrdurlion of chancellors from five to three. He objected, also, thai the change of the system would occasion some inconveniences in prac tice, especially at the beginning, and if this system was not a little better than the old, ho believed it wiso to let well enough alone.
