Is srHatb, Oct. 25.
-Mr lirbird tid he had ben favored with an op
portunity to etaminr tha provulons of thn bill.and
found theui lo be similar lo other acts of incorpo
ration, gtititnf banks, crcepl the last section, re

giving them an equal amount of slock in the con

leges in obliining Mock j he Was willing to go in
I'svor or the Incorporation of banks, so fir as the
business snd Wants of I ho community, might re
quire. Ho concluded by moving to amend the bill
by erasing tho last section.
Mr Picrpont replied that tho stock holders In the
Bank of Rutland would have no possible objection
to the motion just mado to amend. The section
was not added at their suggestion, nor for their
benefit, but, on the contrary, bv tho friends of the
lull It-lintn nhiiti-t .p.. nnl - J...f. 1.... r 'I 11 1 i
It was tho friends of internal imprntcmenl. not the
atickler of moneyed institutions, who moved in this
measure. The great object aimed to nccomplish,
was the construction of an important rail rnau ; and
stock, to effect this desirable object, it had been
thought by oompclcnt judges and judicious friends
might tnoro readily be tubscribed for, as contem
plated in the section of the bill proposed to bo era
sed, than in any other manner.
Mr Howe spoke in favor of retaining the last
section, on tho ground, and under tho full belief,
that if tho present bill passed, tho Rutland Bank,
through its stock holdcrr; would not apply for a
renewal of its charter, if they neglected to sub
scribe for stock in the contemplated Rail Uoad
Bank, and applied for a renewal of their charter,
that application would come with an ill grace be
fore the I.egislaturc.and with no reasonable hopo of
Mr Porter said Ins saw no evil tliet could arise
to the public from retaining the last bection, and
expressed a hopo that the motion to nmend would
Mr Ilebard, in reply to Mr Pierpont, said tl.o
project appeared to him to bo ono in favor of the
stock holders in tho Bank of Rutland ; he could
sco no object, if it was not tho ono thny were now
stockholders, enjeyinrj the privilege and pocketing
the profits of that bank pass this bill, without a.
mendment, nml they become also stockholders in
tho Rail Road Bunk, to an equal amount, if they
chose to become so if not the next application
would probably bo to a new legislatun fur a renew
a) of their charter. Ho was opposed to a rcnowaL
was nn indemnity to the new bank, to the public or
tu the Legislature. Besides, the giving every
individual in community, dosirous of doing so, an
opportunity to subscribe stock in this contemplated
Rail Road Bank, in case the project proved unsuc
cessful, the greotcr the number of stockholders, tho
Itf-V burden, and inoro equally borne ; and if kuc
cetsfua grorter number would shire it d benefit.
Iftho amendment prevailed, as a friend of internal
improvements, he might vote for the bill.
Mr Picrpont, answered, that the section, propo
sed to be stricken nut, lud been inserted without
reference to giving explosive or undue plivilegcs to
xtnckholdcrs in tho Rullmd Bank they or their
interexts hid nnl been cfiniMillcd ; it had been done
to induce tubg nptons Ic the Hall Road ; and with
that prevision, he thought the stork might be'stib

Mr Purler of the committee on banks, ssid tho
fscts so far as they were preentod to the commit
tee, in substance, were, that a charier for a Rail
Road from Whitehall to ltutlnnl had been procur
ed; distance U5 miies ; the route practicable; es
tirnaaed cost $250,000 ; the prer-ent bill contem

Mr Bell waa In favor of sinking out the section

These principles tic did not regard as tsvortble lo
