The same questions of agreeing, disagreeing, nd insisting, are taken upon the amendments o the amendments.

The message from Council informing the Assembly of the appointment of a committee of conference on their part, being received, another motion is usually made to recede, and if that motion fails, a committee of conference, upon the part of the Assembly, is appointed to confer with the committee appointed by Council upon the amendments pending between the two Houses, and Council are informed thereof, or, a conference is denied.

e Support Bill, from the House of Assembly, as amended in Council, by striking out the lary of the Chancery Reporter. The Chanery Reporter had been appointed by the Fiftyixth Legislature, and the amendment was offerd and sustained, avowedly upon the ground, hat he had made no report of cases and deciions, agreeably to the requisitions of the act creating the office. Assembly disagreed to the mendments, and appointed a Committee of Conference. Council appointed a similar Committee; and, at a free conference, the conferees of the House of Assembly stated that a letter had been received from the Reporter, stating that a volume of decisions was almost completed, and would be ready for delivery at the next sitting of the Legislature. This explanation was reported to Council, and being deemed by them satisfactory they receded from their amendments.

The conferees should report, in writing, in every case, except where explanations simply are given.

The conferees may report accompanied with a resolution that the House recede from their amendments; in that case, the following will be the form:

"Whereas, &c., (stating the reasons)—they, therefore, recommend that the House of Assembly recede from their amendments to the bill, entitled An act to incorporate the Lodi Mining Company,' non-concurred in by Council, and
