The Congress of the United States consists of a Senate and House of Representatives, and must assemble at least once every year, on the 1st Monday of December, unless it is otherwise provided by law.
The Senate is composed of two members from each State; and of course, the regular number is now 56. They are chosen by the legislatures of the several States, for the term of six years, one third of them being elected biennially.
The Vice President of the United States is the President of the Senate, in which body he has only a casting vote, which is given in case of an equal division of the votes of the Senators. In his absence a President pro ternpore is chosen by the Senate.
The House of Representatives is composed of members from the several States, elected by the people, for the term of two years. The Representatives are apportioned among the different States, according to population. The 29th Congress is chosen according to the act of Congress of 1842, the ratio being " one Representative for every 70,680 persons in each State, and one additional Representative for each State having a fraction greater than one moiety of the said ratio, computed according to the rule prescribed by the Constitution of the United States." The law of 1842 also requires, that the Representatives of each State " shall be elected by districts composed of a contiguous territory equal in number to the number of Representatives to which said State may be entitled, no one district electing more than one Representative." The present number is 226 Representatives, and 2 Delegates.
Since the 4th of March, 1817, the compensation of each member of the Senate and House of Representatives has been $8 a day, during the period of his attendance in Congress, without deduction in case of sickness; and $8 for every twenty miles' travel, in the usual road, in going to and returning from the seat of government. The compensation of the President of the Senate pro tempore, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, is $16 a day.
