and criminal matters, formed by Austin' for the government of his colony, and approved by the Governor of Texas, must be regarded as having the force and effect óf laws, and rights adjudicated under them are entitled to the protection of the courts at this day. The presumption always is, that the acts of an officer are in conformity with the laws un- der which he acted. An Alcalde's deed stands upon the same footing as all other deeds executed at that pe- riod, whether deeds of the commissioners of colonies or of private persons executed before Notaries, they are evidence now of the same rights of which they were evidence at the time of their execution; the right and the evidence of the right are so blended and woven togeth- er, that one cannot be impaired without im- pairing the other.

to report a bill for the relief of the Pe- titioner. Mr. FRANKLIN said—As to the wisdom of that proposition we may well entertain some doubts. It will be within the recollection of every mem- ber of this House, who has devoted any attention to the subject, that there were more fraudulent certificates issu- ed than there were valid ones, and that they sold in the market for a very small price compared with the genuine certificates. Previously to the report of the Board of Commissioners, cer- tificates covering something like nine- teen millions of acres had been issued, which were held to be valid, whilst others amounting to something over twenty-fbar millions were returned as invalid. A large number of these cer- tes were located, and by persons T_ew them to be fraudulent, „ jo paid taxes on them for years. And doubtless some of them passed in- to innocent hands. Bat if this prece- dent should be estiblished, it would drive us into the inquiry in all similar cases, who were innocent...

1852, it was not necessaiy that all surveys should be returned to the General Land Office within twelve mooths. A charge of the Judge, applying the direc- tions laid down in the "Act concerning sur- veys," February, 1852, to locations made pre- vious to the passage of that act, is erroneous in each and all of its parts. In a suit for land on a location there was no necessity for an allegation of a survey; the law imposes no such absurdity as to "require the plaintiff to have the averment of the sur- vey in his petition, when the petition was liled before the survey was made.

Taking the statistics of the General "Government, the Indians of Texas were estimated at 24,000. He thought, him- self, that twelve leagues would consti- tute an exceedingly small territory for the settlement of so large a number. But he was perfectly willing to see the agents try the experiment; and was -satisfied that if the territory were found insufficient, a subsequent Legislature woqld not hesitate to make an addi- tional grant of jurisdiction.

If such an amendment were adopted, these lands might be subdivided into small and convenient tracts, and each al- ternate tract might be sold upon a long tíredit, at no less than a minimum price; the purchaser to pay an interest of six per cent, on the amount of his pur- chase, to be annually expended in the same manner as the school money distrib- uted by the State. By adopting this policy, most of the counties would de- rive some immediate benefit from their school lands, and the alternate tracts re- served from sale would much more rap- idly increase in value. The want of a good University in the State, where a liberal education can be obtained, is a serious inconvenience.
