No. 10. Supplementary National Loan Act August 5, 1861

A BILL for the amendment of the loan act of July 17 [No. 4], 1861, was reported by William P. Fessenden of Maine, from the Senate Committee on Finance, July 22, and passed the Senate the same day. The Committee of Ways and Means of the House reported the bill on the 25th with amendments, the most important of which authorized the payment of interest at nine per cent on treasury notes, and pledged the receipts from certain duties for the payment of the loan. The Senate, on the 29th, struck out both of these provisions, and added the section authorizing the issue of five dollar treasury notes. The bill received its final form from a conference committee, which inserted the section suspending in part the subtreasury act of 1846. The report of the conference committee was agreed to by the Senate without a division, and by the House by a vote of 83 to 34.
