constituted as follows: Messrs. Clarke, of Ohio, Ingraham, of Louisiana, and Martin, of Massachusetts.
The motion of T. Morris Chester, that the evening sessions be devoted to discussion and public speaking hereafter, provoked a lively interchange of views upon the question, not unmixed with touches of humor, which set the house in a roar.
Jerry Harralson, of Alabama, in reply to the motion, stated the members of the convention had come all the way to New Orleans to transact whatever business that had brought them together, and then go home. "Many of us," said he "can't stay in Louisiana more than a few days," and hence there was no time for spouting.
J. H. Burch was of the same opinion of T. Morris Chester.
H. Lott, of Louisiana, reminded the convention that they were at a daily expense of $25 for gas, but he was in favor of assembling at nine o'clock in the morning, and without devoting so much time to speech making, go to work at their business until nine at night, with an intervening recess at midday.
