Lockhart residing West of the Colorado. Down Blistrop but a week or two since and stole several Horst s within the immediate Vicinity of the town. These aggressions will soon terminates. As a Bill is now before con Prees establishing a Chain of military Post along he Frontier which will effectually Cut off the indians from the important from Texas. By last advices from Texas it appears thit the Inui Vitants of Coahuila a state adjoining it Are disposed coalesce with their american neighbors. It was Zava lan s plan carve out of the or Send Piid Lic of Mexico a new confederacy con-si.-of Texas and several northeastern states of that Republic. These states Are by a people of a More Liberal character Tolian the rest and we should not 1 0 surprised hear in no longer Lime that inv asian s scheme vas adopted and that the texan Empire extended our the Rich Inizie i and Delight till table lands of one third of is. Louis Gazette. The Milledgeville a. Journal of the i7 i ult. a Quot we learn by a letter from Oumbus, a in this place Ilu Itan alarming state of things existed in al it City. It seems that a Man was arrested on a charge of horse Metaline who has imn Tovery of the incendiaries who burned Down the court House and jail some time since. In consequence of these Confes irions several other individuals were a Resi Eil. One of the individuals who Peiu ally lived the court Ilouise is now in prison and the citizens have been called on form a Gottard at the jail prevent a .�-fue. The confess Oti of the horse thief arrested would seem indicate tiie exist Tice of a plot Burr and plunder the cell Quot speech of or. Bright on the modification Bill. Or. is no cause for the fear professed be entertained ii gentlemen on this floor that the state i a be ruined by our system of internal improve Zient. Even if our work of will Cost the Large sum of $�1.000,000, As alleged by the gentleman from Posey or. Oven still we have the ability Complete them we have pledged our Faith the completion extensive interests have grown up under that pledge and tho credit of the state and the Prosperity of the people alike demand that we should comply with stir Promise. In undertaking this system the state had no mercenary object in View. The weal it of a government consists not in Money but in the Prosperity and Happi Ziess of the people and no government Worth having that does not legislate with a direct reference these objects. In adopting this system the state designed then furnish the people a cheap Illey and Means of travel and transportation and thereby encourage agriculture incite Industry facilitate the operations of Trade promote the growth and increase the general business and wealth of the country. We Are in the strictest , an agricultural people be have few or no ?3. Tiie Cou Witry is dotted Over in every direction wet ii farms our soil is Rich and Prodoti chive and yields Industry an abundant Harvest. But what of his of what Avail is it the Fanner raise a superabundant crop if the ipod Uttof his la or must rot upon his Liana i it for Thant of a Market or what is equally As bad if the expense of transportation eats up i Riih value of his commodity. Yet Surh is a flu stub Tithof the farriers in Ninny of he i Interior counties in this state. The y pro a Dice More than they consume. They hive att dually of their hands a Large sur i plus which could they gift it Market with dirt too great an exp pfc a would iter ind a in value Imi tor want of the Inch if Ujj i Good Fundus and canals would afford it is suffered go Vraim Antl is a total loss the country of it taken Market the Cost of trans Jurta tion swallows up the profit. Why is it that the prod tiits of the Interior Are in general Worth from one half fun o thirds Lesii than in the River counties a for no other reason than tha the Cost and difficulties of transport at k n impose a tax upon the value of the article tar Thore ohis Rous thai the amount that Ould be Asse sed construct our Public works. There is not an Interior county in our Sute that does not annually Loose in the reduced value of its products occasioned by the want of those facilities Vrzich go by roads and can nals afford five thries the Amo int of Revenue that would be necessary Ciar by on our a is Teri. On the single Artiel a imn Noah Lun iii Nike a Ecea iary defray the expense of tote government. This May at fit seem strange bit if it be True As it is supposed that 200,000 head Are annually driven a distance of 40 Lod Niles a Inkret and that each hog losses in weight the value of in consequence of driving it is evident that there m a total loss loss the com Munith on Liis article alone of from but two hunk by thousand dollars. It is but poor encouragement the producer be obliged year after year Enis Ointer those losses for the want of those facility cry which is the duty of the state consulting the interests o the people furnish nor is it be understood that Interior counties alone will lie benefits eds or that by furnishing facilities a tie More Remote the products of those nearer Market will be reduced in value. A concentration of the surplus at any Given Point of diminishing the value will increase the buyers produce Competition and enhance the Price the Utility of works of internal improve ment. Is not at this Day a matter of conjecture. We have the example of new York Pennsylvania and Ohio before us guide and direct us. New York that wast first try the Experiment after finish ii he Hudson and Erie canal and witnessing for fifteen years its beneficial results if now undertaking new works the will Cost her people Ronor millions of Dollare for a time her system the same violence of opposition that is manifested Here. Her undertaking was rep resented As visionary and Chinitz Riyat in the extreme and at Leas a adv milf. Otth e Quot Wal Ltd i081 la ions Money and when completed would not. Produce Theon half Ozone percent., that it would Bea Buirden on the people without the Hope of a corresponding Benefit. Yet amidst doubts and Forel Iddings and the ridicule and obloquy which the work on countered the state pursued steadily Heff Onward course and the result proved that her better councils had prevailed a inthe first year after the com detion of the canal the tolls amounted $d6c,000,�? More than paying the entire inv rest on the Cost of the work and in five years after 542.695. The friends a a that Ork a in merely anxious for its completion. With the View of reconciling the people the expense of it entered into Laboured calculations show that it Woitiw ultimately be a Public Bend fit and in a he ardor of the or Hopes predicted Whitt within Quot so years the Carial oui annually bring Down 25o,o06 How Little did they foresee tho True result the actual amount Whick reached the tide in 1836, 697,346 tons or nearly three fold the Quantity estimated and the tal tonnage of that year ascending and descending exceeded thirteen Hundred thousand tons. It is True we a not new Yorki but we Are not so very far by Hind what new York was at the time of commencing he canal. See had a population of Abovitz i�00,000. We have a population of about 70,000. The total were valued at $304,00c�z,�60, ours is Worth about �z6s,-000,000, including a i pwn fas of 5,< ,oo0 acres of land not .able, but which constitutes a part of the real wealth it Ihu state new York now stands unrivalled in population and in wealth by an state in the uni in her population is a sting ted at 3,000,000, and her wealth at j Aioo 000,000 and for this rapid , she is mainly indebted her system of internal improvement a which spoke into being along the a Neotha canal numb Rou towns and , and gave a general Imperi Stothe business of the state.
