With this View a Essl Mestad on the Wabash for the Ternin sub of the Saali , As aavifme4a at any other Point below and Mach Man so than at the rapids. All pakies were then satisfied with the termination of the canal. But when the glorious system ofl835&Quot was framed and the Centiu a and Cioff out canal made a part of it and the wild to. Jet entertained of connect ii the Lake with the Ohio instead of the Wabash River by canal navigation it occurred for the first time no doubt to lome of the knowing ones that the cheapest Way to do it was to throw away the Middle and Worthem did visions of the Central canal to petition Congo for another donation of land to continue the Wabash and Erie canal Down to Terre Hante and then Taka the Crom Cut and Soat Berh division of the Central canal to Evansville. This i apprehend is the origin of the new Choih set up by Indiana. But upon the same pretence Why not ask Congress for a rant of land sufficient to continue the a amp Nal below Vin Cennes around the rapids 1 the navigation is much worse there than at the present termination of Fth canal. Congress is under just As much obligation to Grant land to continue the canal to the Ohio River As to t Erre haute. Arid it has always seemed to me that the late Daini set up by the stifle to a tar ther donation is perfectly ridiculous. The original Grant of land for the Wabash and Erie canal was not strictly a donation because Tea canal was located Thi Ough government lands Whdeh greatly to banned their value and the alternate sections reserved were pro Lubly Worth More than the whole would have been without the canal. The extra Grant of land As now claimed and prayed for by the state would be entirely a donation As there Are no Congress lands to select from in the Vicinity of the proposed Extension. Tho proposed canal from Tippecanoe to Terre haute would be t effect in useless if it were done until the whole line of canal to the River shall in a completed and in View of the prostrate dilapidated condition of our system and of Lue ruined credit of the state i think it will nut soon be completed. I he extra lands claimed by the state if granted by Congress would be a donation to All intents and part>os�8 by the general govern Tenient to tha state for internal improvement of a partial and local character i Congress will really give for internal a prove ment at All Why not change the character of tie application and ask for a donation of land to Aid in the improvement of the rapids of the Wabash River. This would be an object of general Utility Worther the munificence of the general government and Iii ight very properly be Denio mated a National work All the people of the Wabash Valley on both sides of the River Are deeply interested in the improvement of the River and no doubt they Ifould All heartily co operate in any measure calculated to effect so desirable an object. La benefits would be immediately available and if it could be speedily accomplished would profit the Trade of the Wabash River More than the whole value and credit of the proposed canal before said Canni could possibly be connected with the system of which it is but a Small part. Indeed if ail the canals were completed which we have projected the Wabash would hardly be the Lesa needed they never can do any thing Uwarda up plying Ite place. I repeat the Wabash canal As t a a called has no claims upon government. And f government would donate land to construct it a donation could be obtained for the improvement of the Wabash instead of that if the application were changed. Illinois will then help us. The object is great and Gloria us it would carry great influence with it if it were once set on foot. Who will set the Ball in motion 1 once a tart it and its velocity and magnitude will increase at every revolution. I despair of the state doing any thing efficient tar years if Ever perhaps not until the toss of property at the rapids will exceed the Cost of the of Vassary improvement. Will the people of the Wabash Valley strike while the Iron is Boti will they a Peak out while they can speak to purpose and be heard a a or Wil they wait the action of the present Congress and let its munificence be bestowed upon an object of in intr importance for want of the necessary informal ibo As to what the people really Iseed.
