Why sir if we pass this matter off for ten years longer will there not be the same immigration to the conntry and will there not be the same difficulties to undergo? It is acknowledged on all hands in refer- ence to the commissioners who have pre- pared these codes that a better selection could not have been made in the State And it is admitted that they have discharged their duty well. I can see no reason at all why we should not take them up and act upon them. On motion of Mr. Ardrey thesubstitute offered by Mr. Stedman was laid on the table. Mr. Dickson of G. moved to lay the substitute reported by the majority of the committee for the original resolution and the original resolution on the table. A division was called for.

Mr. Scott of Harrison said The bill now pending before the Senate is oue I had the honor to introduce in the early part of this Session last winter to ninend the Texas Western Railroad Charter. The amend- ments proposed in this bill arc simple in their provisions easily understood and do not propose to increase in any material manner the franchise granted in the original charter. The reasons prompting the com- pany to ask these amendments to be made were pretty fully explained to this Senate at the time it was before this body last winter; but as the Executive has seen proper to return it to the Legislature for reconsidera- tion together with his objections thereto it will be necessary for me to recapitulate much that was said on that occasion in order to refute these objections of the Executive and to place the subject in it- proper light before ! this body. .

'fimw U r V LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. JULY 12 justand beloved a friend on whose ear the sacred call of friendship never fell unheeded and a citizen whose constant aim was by personal eCort and pecuniary contribu- tion to advance the best interests of his country. Simple and unostentatious in all his habits firm and undeviating in tho cause of right he presented to the youth of his acquaintance a pure model of an American gentleman ; in fact he was the realization of tho idea of the poet : " an honest man is the noblest work of God." Be it therefore Resolved 1st That this House deeply regret the death of Julian S.Deverea vx late a member from the county of Rusk. Resolved 2d That the usual badge of mourning be worn by the members of this house in token of our sincere regret for the death of the deceased for the space of 30 days.

Mr. Palmer When this resolution was introduced in the Senate on yesterday by the Honorable Senator from Cass I did not suppose any member of this House had any inclination to discuss the merits of the policy proposed in that resolution. I there- fore made the motion which prevailed to lay it upon the table.

Now ir I say to the Honora- ble gentleman let us oppose the loan bill andadoptthe State policy let the qnestion come before the people and I have no hes- itancy in saying they will unanimously ap- prove it. I take the position sir that it is better for the people to build and hold the roads than for the people to build and cor- porators to own them. But I fear I shall not bo in company with my zealous friend in the support of the State plan for he seems to be very much afraid of direct tax- ation.

1856. LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. X won't find another suih law south of 3Iason and Dixon's line. "Why then make an cx- cepection of Texas? Mr. Poag This measure I think is one whiah the country demands. So far as my information goes as to the section in which I live it is desired by the people. And this is not a measure which may be designated as class legislation as has been intimated here. Men cannot be classified as creditors and debtors especially in Texas. And this legislation is as much in favor of one man as of another; it is in favor of the I people generally. Now if this law is not amended I can say as far as the practical operation of the law is concerned we have no statute authoriz- ing attachments at all. Persons removing from one section of this State to another can place themselves as completely beyond the control of their creditors as though they were to remove to the State of Missouri and more so. I will specify an instance. A man living in Ilarrison county and in- deb...

Mr. Ochiltree said he thought that provision entirely too hard and stringent. ft was not contained in the law of any other State that he knew of. Ho hoped this House would not pass a law that would render a man liable merely crossing a county line or removing from one county line to another to have his property seized by his creditors and thus be compelled cither to stop or to give security. So far as he was concerned individually he had no doubt its adoption would bring an abundant harvest to gentlemen of the -legal profession. Wherever the country ...

The State will be enabled to make advantigeous loans by mortgaging her public lands ; and by sec- tiouizing this domain and bringing it into the market she will ba able to anticipate her liabilities and to offer a premium for her indebtedness making her credit abroad as good as that of the general Government. She has already paid off her revolutionary debt in a manner more honorable than the United States government paid off her rev- olutionary debt and thereby securing the reputation of being an honorable State-debt-paying people. With thi'3 fond pros- pect before us is it not apparent what great advantages may bo realised by the State at large if our constitution is amen- ded so as to make the funds of the State available. It will be recollected by every member of the Senate that during the session of 1S51-2 there was a gentleman fr...

Tj mo it argues not that they are all in error or insincere: by no means fir. I take the broad principle sir that each and every one of them come up here honestly and faithfully representing the wishes of their constituency upon this vital question. They represent a broad territory such a one as cannot be boasted of by any other Stale. Their interests are many and vari- ous and many and various as they are they must all agree upon one grand object some plan by which facilities for transpor- tation can be attained. Now sir if all ad- here to their original plans it is perfectly clear nothing satisfactory can be done.

'1856. LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. 23 would bo divided and the probabilities aro that little benefit would be derived from it. But above all things I most desire that we should definitely and positively determine upon some internal improvement policy and adhere to it with a persevering con- sistency. The loaning policy at this time seems to be acceptable to the people and I think will do to experiment upon if it doe3 not realize the fond anticipation of its ardent friends and supporters. Now Mr. President the quastion before us is shall the resolution be adopted ? Shall we distribute this fund to tho several counties of the State according to free white population ? Now Mr. President it is well known that since the passage of the loan bill before this body last winter pub- lic opinion has been pretty freely expressed in favor of that measure and a considera- ble portion of the representatives in the other house have returned with instructions to vote for that bill. In view of all these...

The opponents of this bill have made tolerably lengthy speeches but none of them to the point. They talk about the common law about taking from the wife her marital rights her cammuuity rights ; they talk about the rights of children &e. Now this bill proposes to take no individual's rights from him. It proposes to interfere with none of them at all ; neither with the wife's community rights nor with her sepa- rate property does the bill interfere.
