From the recent advices from Gover- nor Stevens, as to the practicability of the Northern route, connecting Lakes Michigan, Superior, and St. Pauls on the Mississippi, with Straits of Fuca, it would seem that in due time such a road may be constructed, and within a few years will be demanded by the public. There is no conflicting interests between these two routes, particularly as the sur- veys will demonstrate that nature has pre- sented insurmountable obstacles, in the Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Nevada, to any intermediate route. I will only add, that in arriving at a favorable con- clusion as to the superior advantages of the Southern route, it will not be neces- sary to substitute the Buffalo for the ba- rometer, or the trappef for the engineer, but proceed upon the same scientific sur- veys and estimates as have governed all other railroad companies. The company long since despatched an experienced engineer with a competent corps, who are now in the field, and will soon com...

Mr. ARMSTRONG—Mr. President: I regret that I was not present when that part of the bill was passed over relating to. the Nationro£ lands.. I do not offer that amendment to obstruct the passage of the bill at all, for if I had thought it would obstruct the passage of'the bill, or prevent a company from undertaking the contract for the construction of the road under the bill after it is passed, I would not have offered it. My sole object in offering it is to show that I am one of those who believe that a donation of 20 sections of ...

As tó the other mattter, whether the committee will recommend donations to all the chartered roads or not, I cannot my, I expect, however, they will re- commend donations to particular roads. Mr. FRANKLIN: I think the reso- lution on its face expresses the views of 9 the gentleman from Brazoria, (Mr. Cone.) The committee have reported one bill to tap—and they want another bill in rela- tion to certain roads in this country that shall tap the country—and let them be in progress in the mean while. In the mean time, I hope the commit- tee will take into consideration the pro- priety of extending aid to the local roads of the State. I should like to have the whole matter before the committee, and hear their views upoñ it.

YOL. 1. TRI-WEEKLY sTATE TIMES. CITY OF AUSTIN, TEXAS, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 31, 1853. NO. 21. FIFTH LEGISLATURE. DEBATES IN THE SENATE. J. T. FLIST, Reporter. from Hopkins (Mr. Wren,) but will ad- duce a few facts which I think worthy of consideration. We do not sit here to take into consideration the value of the land alone which we are donating as an inducement for companies to undertake the construction of the road; but also to take into consideration the advantages that would accrue to Texas from the com- pletion of a work of this kind. We should not only ask: How much are we giving as an inducement for the construc- tion of the road? but also; how much will the State be benefitted by it ? If the benefits accruing to the State, sur- pass the value of the grants thus made the State is the gainer by it. If the lands are worth so little now, and by the construction of the road the land dona- ted to the company gets to be worth $51,- 000,000, (the gentleman's calculation,) the value o...

Suppose that the lands should become worth five dollars per acre upon the con- struction of the road, the company will have made $50,000,000, so will the State have made the same. How has she made it? By the investment, of the capitalist, of Ins means and his energies. Now will nót the company have been of as much advantage to the State as the State to the company. The company are compelled to aliénate their lands at or before the ex- piration of a certain period whether they have become valuable or not; the State is not compelled to alienate, but may dis- pose of them whenever good policy may it.

=±sfc Tennessee, and which I have applied to IfewTork, of «7 50 per acre for ten i&ileson each side of the track, as the in- crease in value of the land in the imme- diate vicinity of the railways, and say- ing nothing of the great increase in the value of all other lands, which must ne- cessarily take place in consequence of their construction, we have as the in- crease in the value of that small portion of the lands of the State, the sum of 192,000,000 of dollars, to which we may add the vast commercial and other ad- vantages which must necessarily follow thé construction of these important works. My own impression is that the value of land in Texas at this 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.
