we have heretofore advanced in relation to TVS should lite the names ofthe would advance then meanton a foroddoon Here is the Jnlv letter of vour da ted New July which you handed me this has been read and consider and I will give a few my opinion of the Belleville andflimoistownRail ty the 17th section of that power is given to construct a Bail Boad from Term Haute to a railroad shall be made from Terre Haute to nny point in the State so as to form such and that such a road is provided Springfield and Terre Haute railroad charter 1 do not think that or any other in that grants any such and these are some of the which I have now time to The act conferring tho is rAn act to Incorporate the Belleville jmwas iImoistown Railroad An Main it onldhovc been vetoed and the whole act will show most clear a question on which thewhigs all went one and the why are not whb goes for Kationol political and who does not The fact then appear that no rote Had iipon any such a that shows complctejiarty volt The New and some Northern and Souths em States opposed this while ihe Western andNorthwestern States may lave favored they havingsuch im mense rivers and whichr are obstructed and difficult to farther v Judge the hero of the Central Railroad of appears to Jiave been im mensely delighted he instantly sent a telegraphic despatch to promis ing that Uhndis should give a larger majori ty for Pierce than any other There JudgeDouglas whom the Telegraph acknowledges to be the hero of the Ccn trol mid who has done more for the an3 than any other man in the as eyery one the Telegraph goes heart in hand for the who dif fers from the of both politi cal and from which state of vase we are to that either the Telegraph has lost his Hear him again t i Itcannotbe had Franklin Pierce been instead of Millard when the Central Railroad Billwas ed The same is true of all the bills grant in land to aid in constructing railroad theJIonibal And and all other bills of similar Pierce would vetoedthem ownhobeliorcisinysuch trash Does the Teleffraphktiow ishe votedfor or against these Railroad Appropriation Bills 9 Does ie not that tho Eastern States aside irom party those bills that were giving thepublic lands solely to western for western improvements did not and otherwestern Congress vote for those lulls iAnd can he who of the Eastern Whigs or democrats did or not vote against themj Pierce would NOT have vetoed them all J It is singular there la no difference discovered by the these railroad ind the subject of Hirer and Harbor Improvements Tbe general Gov ernment does not lose one by donat ing the alternate sections to jbuilding the Central Itwas for that reason that theold States allowed the bills to The remaininggovernment lands along the roads are to be eold at donble which makes theJ government he donation But how is it with the im provcment of Rivers and Harbors Here there is no such a thing ss an indemnifying iroccss The whole country is

to in addition to a road aoross the then so much of the act would he void and of no for t would contravene the 23d clause of the 3d Article of our which declares that no private or local law which

was Speaker of the House when this act lassed that body without having had a single It was considered a local and excited no The House rat a few days by a very decided refused to grant a charter for the Ter re Haute and Lotus Is it not then lost absurd to suppose that in granting charter for aroad purely local they intended at the same to makei this unimportant coextensive vaththe and by unite
