accounts of the sury department to continue its gation and to sit during the recess of the senate which led to an extended discussion In the senate after the morning hour regular order was laid aside and Lamar proceeded to address the senate on the Texas and Pacific road He spoke of the great importance of the work and said the company had ready completed 443 miles of road which was doing valuable service in developing the country through which it passed The length of road to be constructed was 1400 miles while the amoun of bonds to be issued could not exceed and the amount of interest to be guaranteed by the could not exceed in round numbers per annum The riends of tho advocated its age to complete a part of tbe great railway system connecting the Atlantic and oceans The iou of this road will new and valuable markets for produce The advantage to the and people to be derived rom the road would amply compensate or the aid now asked He argues that he government would be secured for aid in its extension by mortgage on th entire road by all tho earnings of the and hy all dues from tho ment for transportation of mails tary supplies and troops Ho then spoke of the objections to tho and said tho single question before the senate was whether the government would spend two million dollars ally for the purpose of constructing his road the falue of which could not measured in dollars The amount asked was not half that appropriated annually for rivers and harbors It was lot as much as the government expended tho war for mail transportation alone to the Pacific coast and that was at a time when we had but and the postal demands of the were not what they are now t was not a fair statement of this case o say that the passage of this com- mitted the government to a great debt Pake the

and oratories he said the sudden ion of our Pacific empire was a ible epoch in the political history of this Country Some of our statesmen re- the event with enthusiastic aud others were dejected He hen quoted from tbe speech of Mr Webster on this subject to the effect hat it was impossible for this vast em- lire to be integrated into our political Mr Lamar next referred to he views entertained

which no private could accomplish but must be done by the federal government He hen spoke of a introduced in the louse of representatives in by -Ir of Texas and said t was defeated by those who at thai ime doubted the construction of it and he power of the government to con- tract the road Had it not been for those constitutional objections a railroad would now be running over this very route He argued that there were no constitutional grounds against ment in the construction of the road and read a letter of R M T Hunter Virginia who formerly opposed the Jill on constitutional grounds who tates he still retained these general but in many respects they had modified by experience and the re- ults of war He next referred to giants to other Pacific railroads and aid to the Northern Pacific the ment had given a grant of cres to the Union Pacific and Central Pacific it had given acres of and and its bonds to a prodigious amount and the aid to Texas and was but eighteen million acres of and People south had already in- vested a million dollars in tho road milt 445 miles but they were unable o build more The legislature of every state in the south had passed favoring government aid in he construction of the road He spoke jf the advantages of soil and climate of the south and that he cost of living there was cheap and every year was growing less Throughout the territory were great rivers which neither froze up in winter up iu summer and which could run her all he year round The southern states nad but a small portion of their ands under cultivation They could aise cotton enough
