Necessary to a choice

. 95 JOHN W. JONES, one of the Representatives from the State of Virginia, having received a majority of the whole number of votes given in. was declared to be duly elected Speaker of the House.

Mr. Jones was then conducted to the chair by Walter Coles, of Virginia, and John Quincy Adams, of Massachusetts, where the oath to support the Constitution of the United States, as prescribed by the Constitution, and by the act of June 1, 1789, entitled “An act to regulate the time and manner of administering certain oaths," was administered to the Speaker by Dixon H. Lewis, one of the Representatives from Alabama.

The same oath (or affirmation) was then administered by the Speaker to all the other members of the House, who answered to their names, as per list herein before recited.

Delegates from Territories then appeared, were sworn to support the Constitution of the United States, and took their seats, viz:

From the Territory of Florida-David Levy.
From the Territory of Wisconsin-Henry Dodge.
From the Territory of Iowa—Augustus U. Dodge.
A message from the Senate, by Mr. Dickins, their Secretary:

Mr. Speaker: I am directed to inform the House of Representatives that a quorum of the Senate is assembled, and that the Senate is ready to proceed to business. And the Secretary withdrew.

On motion of Mr. Dromgoole, it was Ordered, That a message be sent to the Senate to inform that body that a quorum of the House of Representatives has assembled, and that John W. Jones, one of the Representatives from the State of Virginia, has been chosen Speaker; and that the House is now ready to proceed to business; and that the Clerk do go with said message.

On motion of Mr. Charles J. Ingersoll, Resolved, That a committee be appointed, on the part of this House, to join such committee as may be appointed on the part of the Senate, to wait on the President of the United States, and inform him that a quorum of the two Houses is assembled, and that Congress is ready to receive any communication he may be pleased to make.

Mr. Charles J. Ingersoll, Mr. Wise, and Mr. William P. Thomasson, were appointed of the committee on the part of this House.

Mr. Dromgoole moved the following resolution:

Resolved, That the Standing Rules and Orders of the last House of Representatives be adopted as the rules and orders of proceeding of this House.

A motion was made by Mr. Duncan to amend the resolution, by add. ing, "except the rule limiting a speech to one hour.”

This was accepted by Mr. Dromgoole, who made the same a part of his resolution.

A motion was made by Mr. John Quincy Adams to amend the said resolution, by adding thereto the following: "and except the rule generally known as the 21st rule of the House, in the words following: "No petition, memorial, resolution, or other paper, praying the abolition of slavery in the District of Columbia, or any State or Territory, or the slave trade between the States or Territories of the United States, in which it now exists, shall be received by this House, or entertained in any way whatever.""

A motion was made by Mr. Cave Johnson to amend the resolution, by striking out these words: “except the rule limiting a speech to one hour," being the addition moved by Mr. Duncan, and accepted by Mr. Dromgoole.
