Being the consideration of the following resolution:

And whereas, Governor Blair's administration has been marked by eminent ability, rare integrity and unsurpassed suocess, as shown by the enlistments and organization into compa. nies, regiments and batteries, in the most perfect military order, of over eighty thousand men, as brave, true, and patriotic as ever bared their breasts to any foe; therefore,

Resolved, (the Senate concurring,) That the thanks of the people of Michigan, through this Legislature, are hereby cordially tendered to ex-Governor Blair, for the able and satis. factory manner in which he has, during his administration of the last four years, been able to conduct the affairs of the govern. meut of the State;
