Current Page Transcription [history]

On motion of Mr. Turner, of Alabama, a committee of three was appointed to draft resolutions expressive of the deep regret of the colored people of this country at the death of the late Lieutenant Governor Dunn. The chairman appointed Messrs. Turner, Frost and Ruby said committee.

At twelve o'clock the special order of the day—Mr. Rapier's resolution—was again called up and read.

Mr. Pinchback offered the following as an amendment to the same:

Resolved, That Hon. Charles Sumner, by his disinterested advocacy of our rights, and his consummate statesmanship in securing a recognition of these rights in the constitution of the United States, has endeared himself to the colored people of the nation, and until Hon. Charles Sumner shall himself announce his secession from the Republican party, we shall hold him to be as he has ever been, one of the purest and ablest members of our great party.

The chair ruled the amendment out of order, but stated that it could be considered separately.

Mr. Pinchback appealed from the decision of the chair.
