A message from the Senate, by Mr. Hamlin, one of their clerks :
Mr. Speaker : The Senate have adopted the following resolution, viz:

Whereas the question whether the State of Georgia has become and is entitled to representation in the two houses of Congress is now pending and undetermined ; and whereas, by the joint resolution of Congress passed July 20, 1868, entitled "A resolution excluding from the electoral college votes of States lately in rebellion, which shall not have been reorganized,” it was provided that no electoral votes from any of the States lately in rebellion should be received or counted for President or Vice-President of the United States until, among other things, such State should have become 'entitled to representation in Congress, pursuant to the acts of Congress in that behalf: Therefore,

Resolved by the Senate, (the House of Representatives concurring) That on the assembling of the two houses on the second Wednesday of February, 1869, for the counting of the electoral votes for President and Vice-President, as provided by law and the joint rules, if the counting or omitting to count the electoral votes, if any, which may be presented, as of the State of Georgia, shall not essentially change the result, in that case they shall be reported by the President of the Senate in the following manner: Were the votes presented, as of the State of Georgia, to be counted, the result would be, for

for President of the United States, votes; if not counted, for

for President of the United States, votes; but in either case

is elected President of the United States; and in the same manner for Vice-President; in which I am directed to ask the concurrence of the House.

R. 1803. A bill making appropriations for the support of the army for the year ending June 30, 1870, had come to no resolution thereon.
