tBO Construction Of tllOSQ imnnrfnnf works. My own impression is that the value of land in Texas at tliis moment as es- timated by those who hold it is far above what it was a year ago. I do not believe if any parties were to come here now and offer to purchase your whole public do- maid that they could get it within fifty millions of dollars of what they could have obtained it for some twelve months since. I think the impression has gone abroad and I believe it is well understood that parties would not now bo willing to take less than double the price for thoir lands which they have heretofore and not long since demanded for them. Not only are such the results which must necessarily flow from the construc- tion of these works but such is the im- petus given to public opinion and the in- vestment of money even by talking about railroads. And these great results will bo produced by the appropriation of 22- 570000 acres of land. You give the central road about ten millions cieht hun d...

No sir; but it belongs equally to citizcnB who have come into thq 'country yesterday as much as to those who'havo toiled here from the beginning; and is Texas now too hard run to give the settlor his home? Let mo ask you another question Mr. Speaker. Is it consistent with the poli- cy of tho Stato of Texas owning her hundred millions o&ncrcs and upwards of 'land is it reasonable is it right that bIio should deny to these immigrants tho liftlo quantity they ask only a dot enough at least for their homes? Is it intrinsically right? I confess I cannot 'think so.

fcujJ- . go upon the public domain and select a bald hill or a poor tract ; but sir as thoy arc invariably strong minded olcar-sight-cd men they will secure to themselves the very finest land of the State ; they would be doing injustice to their families to act differently nay sir they would not do so. Thoy would certainly not select lands worth less as the gentleman says than twenty-five cents per acre and then pay taxes on it at one dollar or more. This is an unnatural argument ; those settleis would select the fine spring.? the fine ce- dar and timbered land that in live years will be worth from ten to twenty-five dol- lars per acre. It is urg.nl that it has al- ways been the policy of the Republic anil State to invite occupants that is true it has been the policy and was cer- tainly correct when the strong arm of tyranical Mexico was hurling vengeance on Texas. That day is numbered among the things that were ; our domain has been the price of blood ; it has caused much to spill ...

Messrs. TARVER and SAYLES ad- dressed the House at some length in fa- vor of the highest amounts mentioned. Mr. TARLTON said : In offering the substitute before the House, Mr. Spea- ker, I was not actuated by a desire of! dealing out the salaries of our Judges j with a stinted hand. I have taken some j pains to examine into this matter, and have averaged the amounts paid as sala- ries to the District Judges in the differ- ent States of the Union.

apply such a rule to the Judges of the District Courts. He says that the Judges will receive at the rate of eleven dollars and seventy-five cents per day, counting the time as actually spent upon the bench and in traveling the District. Well sir, I repeat that if this sort of ad- measurement is applied to members of the legislature, both the gentleman and myself, as well as the other members of the two houses, are receiving fifty cents per hour more than any Judge in the State. Now, the House has already adopted an amendment, allowing the Judges of the Supreme Court three thousand dol- lars per annum. The proposition now is, to give the Judges of the District Courts a salary of twenty-five hundred dollars. Here is a difference of five hund- red dollars. And why should any greater difference exist ? Are not the labors of the District Courts, if not altogether, nearly equivolent to those of the Su- preme Judges ? I say they are altogeth- er so. And is not the time of the one class as ...

I have expended a hundred thou- sand dollars on it, and I think it has cost me too much to give it up quietly aud without any authorized means having been used to determine my title. Walker—Are you sensible that such language is treasonable? Kinney—There are tribunals in the coun- try to determine my title to the land 1 hold by actual purchase, and it can't be esteemed treason if I should claim my own property. Walker—Your title has already been de- clared void, and the republic would allow no one .nan to hold so large a portion of its territory. Some other conversation ensued, in which Kinney showed some excitement, but W alker kept reiterating that the government had al- ready declared his title to be void, and the land to belong to its territory; that "the gov- ernment decided such things itself;" and in effect, that Kinney's claim was treasonable. Just before the conclusion of the interview, however, Walker asked Kinney in r...

The proceeds of the sale of our lands. I think should constitute a fund to be hereafter appropriated for purposes of education and internal improvements. In connection with the adoption of any pystem for the sale of these lands a law should be passed limiting the time within which all claims upon them should be lo- cated and surreyed or be thereafter for- ever barred.

Yet the child makes issue with him after his death and brings the estate into court and the estate will be wasted before over it gets out of the court ; for by the statute that this bill proposes to repeal the child that is disinherited has four years after the probate of the will in which he may make up an issue in court and disprove tho facts recited in the will as the grounds of his disinherison; or he has the right rather to call upon the person claiming under the will to prove that just cause did exist ; and if he fails to prove this existence he loses the es- tate.
