At ten o'clock A. M: tho members elect of the House wore called to order by .1. Ale. AI. Shat ter, Uscj., Secrelary of State, and Ihe roll hav ing been called the members were swoin. Air. Converse moved that Air. Adams of An dover be admitted to a seat without producing his credentials : agreed to. Tho Secretary informed the House that .Messrs Ross of Clarendon (whig) and Plimpton of Ward-boro' (democrat) had presented creden tials signed by the tun-n clerks of those towns, in the absence of the constable and selectmen, which papers the Secretary could not receive, ,as they were not signed by'au ollicor authorized I by law. Air. Foot moved to admit both gentlemen lo seals, thero being no doubt of their election, though not strictly in form, owing to allempt to prevent an election. Tills should not be be a pirty rjtio ticin ; but for one ho would Iruwu down such attempts at disorganization, come whence or where they might. Tne ch lir decided lint the motion was not in order, at this time making this decision in order to rui-o the question for deci-ion bv the House ; which decision was reversed by tiie House on an appeal. The question then recurred on the motion of Air. Foot. Air. Converse had doubts as to Ihe propriety of this proceeding, it might preclude subsequent action by the House. I Iu muler-toni that one of those ca-es at lea-t was contested. lie pro-po-ed to lay tho motion upon the table. Air. Kico believed that an iidmi-'inn of these gentlemen would not prevent future action, if good cause should be shown. He confirmed the statement ol .Mr. l oot, that so lar as w ard-noro is concerned, the attempt to prevent an election was an unlawful one. Air. Walker deprecated lia'lo a wrong pre cedent may be established. Town clerks have no authority to give credential-, and the Ilou-e should be slow in countenancing such p ipers as evidence. Mr. Kiltredge of Fairhaven expressed similar views. Air. Goodhtio said there was testimony from tho legal pre-iding officer of Wardsboro' -bowing that th? election of Mr. Plimpton was made after a motion In dissolve tho meeting had bejn carried by a vole ol two to one, Mr. Rico of Somerset remarked that iinaiii- mous enn-ent is required to dissolve, Air. Spragne suggested that if nothing was to bo gained politically in deciding this question now, so there would nothing bo lo.,t by delay This quc-tion should bo decided right accor ding to law, and thero must be lima taken for this. Air. Sabin said lie could not act upon ex parte or incomplete statements ot tacts ; tho truth inu be elicited by a lull and investigation was for laying the motion upon the table. Air. Lyman thought the picrent time propi tious for establishing a precedent and in his opinion a good precedent in the admission ol members upon such credent!' Is. It is true the credentials are imperfect; still they are strong prina f icie evidence of the fair election strong- or than tho common report, upon the strength of which tho gentleman from Andovcr had already been admitted. To refuse admi-sion, would he to e-t.ibli-h a bad precedent, and to encourage ittempls to prevent elections. Air. Kittredge of Fairhaven said the certifi cates were not simply imperfect they are no cortmcate- at all. Aow to receive members up on such papers, would bo to hoi I out induce- mends for (rands in the return of members. Air. Sibin ouquiricd whether thi- timo would be con-idcred propitious by all, if the applicants happened to be both Whigs. llo objected to es tablishing a precedent In encourage fraud.
