fulfillment of a promise made some time since I to tho tions pending before Congress for the construction of a from the valley of tho to the Pacific Ocean Notwithstanding the delay which has attended the consideration of tins gub jec let us still hope that this important measure will be ere tho adjournment of Con- gress and if this hopo is not fallacious it is sonable to expect thit tho plan of the work finally agreed upon will he selected from among tho eral propositions now in iho National Legislature Whal arc those First WB tne introduced by Mr of California which a mam track from Memphis to Snn Francisco with several branches lo St Louis and the ot Mexico The means for carrying on work arc to be provided from the salo of public lands im- mense tracta nf which on either side the road are set apart for the purpose That so great an enter prise could never rely successfully on such a basis would self evident A rery brief calculation Us absurdity FiHy thousand dollars per mile bo calculated us tho cost of the posed Railroad Tho road will be al the least two thousand miles in length II completed in ten years an average length ot two hundred miles per year must be constructed requiring an outlay of per to raise which about acres of public land must bo sold at tho minimum price of 81 per acre Does any one believe that this amount could be sold even during the first year of the work Surely not Tha amount is greater than is now sold per annum of the public lands within tho limits of all our States at the same price What talismanic charm does i tbe Railroad project possess that it may be to induce such immense purchases of land outside the bounds of civilization But thu view presents tho case in the most favorable light If the Road is to bo built at all it should be completed within five years and to do that tho whole line or nearly the whole would need to bo put under contract at once The tal required to do this two thousand miles of road at per 000 to procure which eighty millions acres land must be sold at SI per acre It ia true that nearly twice that amount of land is donated and fore that it could bo sold for 75 cents per aero We shall not find it necessary however to make any argument to show that this great mass of land would be utterly if forced upon tbe market and that therefore neither reduction in its price nor the increase of its quantity would avail at all in securing the object for which donated But evon if it could effect it there are few I who would not consider such an ap of the public domain a prodigal and waste if the important work ia can be attained in any way at a lest to the Government and with equal certainty These lands at some day must bo valuable to tho tional Treasury But they are especially valuable for purposes of Experience has taught that tho actual settlers on a great route of travel are tho best and cheapest bulwarks against the encroachments and depredations of savages It is all important then that our settlements push out and keep pace with tho of tho Road itself This would bo defeated by tho I am considering admitting that it could be effectual in securing the prosecution of the work If money could bo raised upon tho donated lands it would have to be by mortgage Tho mortgage would at once render the land inalienable and thus the settler would be excluded unless willing to with tho certainty staring him in the face that his improvements would or later Inure to tho benefit of the mortgagee against whom he would have no pre-emption claim in the case of the squatter on tho unsold public domain within the States No permanent or prosperous and favorable settlement of tho country could be expected under such circumstances It will bo noticed that I have based all calculations of land on tho lie lino of road two thousand miles in length whereat the proposes some seven thousand miles or more This however in no manner changes tho aspect of the case in so far as it strengthens the objection against the alienation of such Immense tracts of land and placing them In the hands of speculators who will hold them for gain instead of keeping them within the power of the Government who holds them chiefly for wise and beneficent purposes of enlarge ment and growth of the Republic to which end alone are directed Its ordinary measures for the disposition of the public domain The objections to Mr GWIN'S scheme then are 1st It proposes the construction of seven or eight thousand miles of railroad where two sand only are necessary to secare tha grand ob ready means of communication between our on Ibo Atlantic and Pacific ant therefore its tendency is to delay In greater or ess degree the speedy completion of the work 2d The land scheme can never be made ual in securing tho construction of the road be- cause not competent to furnish the necessary means 3rd Even if tho necessary money could bo raised upon tho lands the lands themselves would be withheld from salo in small lots and thus necessary to the preservation and maintenance of the he effectually estopped 4th It would be a squandering of the National wealth to donate one hundred and fifty-four lions acres of public lands for the construction of tho matter how Imminent tho necessity for its well satisfied that it could bo secured by no cheaper means That tho latter condition cannot be pleaded in justification I think I shall be able to show conclusively ore I leave the subject These objections have combined to defeat Mr scheme and already its friends have abandoned it altogether as was admitted in the nate to-day It would have been unnecessary to make reference to it except that some of its tures are revived in other propositions and all of them may bo so revived ere the sion ceases I have spoken of this plan as Mr It is due to him that I should repeat what I have intimated in former occasions the was not his in a sense which implies personal defeat to its author He it not in tho expectation that it must carry or that it would be decided to be the most feasible He presented it aa a means of ing the general subject It has done its work and in whatever form the shall finally pass to tho Senator from California will belong tho credit having taken the initiative at the present session and of having urged tho subject on tho attention of tho Senate and thus made it the measure par of the titling Congress But my letter has grown so long that I must tion ot other projects until to morrow s LATEST INTELLIGENCE to The Affair at the Rational Hotel In Special to the York

allow them to remain for either The effect of mo be to establish a In the United States where for- manufactures might remain stored for three years without the pay man t of any duties giving tbe opportunity of consulting tbe market and bringing his Roods out of warehouse whenever a Inferable presented itself He would not object so much to allowing Intended fur reexportation to remain br three yean bnt he did object to allowing thon Intended for consumption to remain time It removed the slight check now forded by tho requirement of all to be paid in cash By this that little eral protection
