Gol. Frobell, in a speech of s few mo?
menta' duration, called the attention of
the Preoideut to thia matter,.not only
important to the people of Georgia, he
said, but every portion of our common
oountry. The delegation was here to
offer the President, and through him to
the oountry, just such a highway that
will be safe in wat, commodious in peace,
unobstructed by iee, the cheapest Known
to the commercial world, and ample for
the country that needs it. Col. Frobell
explained the route; whioh will open na
vigation to the Atlantic ocean, tbe cost
of whioh would not exceed $20,000,000,
while its benefits would reach the whole
country. The delegation was here to
ask, in view ot this being a great na?
tional work, that the President would
give it a favorable consideration.
The President, in reply, said he had
seen a map of the route, and it looked
to him eminently praotical. Ho was con?
vinced of its importance, and bat for the
lateness of tho present session, ho would
make it the subject of a special commu?
nication to Congress. He suggested it
would be advisable that the friends of
the measure in Congress obtain the in?
troduction and reference of a bill, as
preliminary to the subsequent action of
the Executive. He did not kuow if
Congress would be disposed to giur >utee
the bonds of the company, or would pre?
fer to give a direct subsidy in public
lands. Ha regarded the measure ns de?
serving of national aid. The delegation
will, to-morrow, represent the impor?

SiVcautlc and Humorom Speech of S. S.
Cox In Congress.
WASHINGTON, May ll, 1872.-Discus?
sions on tbo tariff and tax bilis in Con?
gress are usually of tho most uninterest?
ing character, but tbe speeuh of S. S.
Cox in the House, on Wednesday last,
was exceedingly lively. Members of
Congress and politicians here are still
talking of it; and, as it undoubtedly
claims attention as a clever act of Con?
gressional opera bouffe, I forward it for
Mr. Cox-I do not propose BO much
to antagonize the gentleman from Mas?
sachusetts (Mr. Butler) tn regard to
making salt partly free. I should like
to see it entirely free. I speak on this
side of the House (standing near Mr.
Dawes) because my side of the House is
somewhat demoralized on the tariff
judging from some of the votes given on
coal there yesterday. Some curious ar?
guments were made yesterday. They
go far to disturb some of my principles,
if not to control my vote. A gentleman
from Pennsylvania (Mr. Griffith) ap?
pealed to my friend from Indiana (Mr.
Kerr) not to oppose the coal tax, because
he was boru above a coal formation in
Pennsylvania, and his playmates were
honorable men. I feel the force of that
ad hominem. I was born near the salt
wells of the beautiful Muskingam, in
Ohio. Before that stream had slack
water, before it was considered hardly
worth a dam, its banks spouted Bait
water like a Massachusetts member of
Congress. It was evaporated by bitu?
minous ooal-I mean nothing personal
to the gallant member from Massachu?
setts (Mr. Banks)-I mean the salt water,
not the bunks. Around the wells and
kettles of my native river cluster those
sweet saline associations which have pre?
served mo ever young 1 They are hard
to resist. Auotuer argument has still
more force. Tho gentleman from Mary?
land (Mr. Ritchie) begged us not tc
throttle the infantile coul interests of hit
beloved Cumberland. Although thal
unhealthy baby has been fostered by e
"paternal government" on "pup," or, nt
I ought to say, by a maternal govern
ment on milk, for so man}* years, itt
power of suction is at least 1(3,000 horse
power. These are statistics. Yet, witl
rare economic genius, followed by thi
eloquent fiscal member from tho" Ka
nawha sall works, be appealed to as tc
Lot him steal, so long as other section;
stole from him. Waa there ever sud
an illustration as that just mado on th?
Reutlemau from Massachusetts (Mr
Butler) ? Tho gentleman from Missour
(Mr. Finklenbarg) wanted to be so ho
nest as to help the people to keep pori
by cheap salt. The gentleman fron
Massachusetts (Mr. Butler) wants t<
shoat the Treasury by free salt for cod
ash. This is all larceny. What coull
be more reasonable or ethical? Let u
be to eaoh other instruments of recipro
sal rapine. Michigan steals on coppei
Maine on lumber; Pennsylvania on iron
North Carolina on poa-nu ts; Massaobu
netts on cotton goods; Connecticut o
?air pins; New Jersey on spool-thread
Louisiana on sugar, and so on. Wb
not lot tbe gentleman from Marylan
steal on coal from thom? True, but
comparative few get the benefit, and i
comes out of the body of the people
:rue, it tends to high prices, but doc
not stealing encourage industry? Li
is as moralists, if not as politicians, ri
nrrite the eighth commandment: "Tho
malt steal; because stealing is rigl
trhen common." As I am a represeuti
:ivo of New York, and Onondaga, wit
:bo aid of the foreign solar artisan, evi
porates salt, ought I not also to steal t
aelp Onondaga? Stealing by turill
Mr. Chairman, is, as Do Quincy prove
jf murder, a tine art. If everybot:
itolo from everybody, is tbero any r
)roach to anybody? Tf everybody is
jurglar, is there any need for anybot
to lock up bouses? The mining comp
aies out West send their ores to Wal
:o be so refined as to get more weall
Lt ought to be stopped. Let them ste

pilfer somethiog out of somebody else

md Nevada like those in Wales? Ile
loppy we should all bo when tho ?
preach of Goat Island is removed fro

from California (Mr. Sargent), hy

How happy we should bo when we c
ook each other in the fuco here, cia

commends itself to the gentleman fr
Massachusetts (Mr. Banks), who 1
made tho speech on this subject that
ights my heart. It bas so much mo
ration and wisdom. It has no nonseu
no dootrine in it. It is based on a pt
ciple pure and undefiled. It is p<

How JUDGE DAVIS BECAME RICH.
Judge Davis, of Illinois, is a rich man.
The publio may not know how he be?
came wealthy. About thirty-five years1
ago, when Judge Davis was a practicing I
lawyer in the West, he was employed by
a Connecticut mau to oolleot $800. Davis I
went to tbe place where the debtor lived,
and found bim to be rich in landed pos?
sessions, but without a spare, dollar in '
money. He finally settled the bill by |
giving a deed for the traot of land-a
at, moist and undesirable pieos of land
in appearance, lying dose by a sheet of
water, and consisting, perhaps, of sixty
acres. Davis subsequently met his Con
neotiout client in Ht. Louis, when the
latter, (who seems not to have possessed
the usual Connecticut shrewdness,) fell
to and gave him a "regular blowing up"
for taking the land rather than insisting I
upon the $800 in cash; he didn't want)
any of your Western land, and he told
Davis that, having accepted it in pay?
ment for the debt, he had better keep it I
himself, and pay over the money out of j
his own pocket. To this Davie agreed.
Stepping into a friend's place of busi?
ness, he borrowed $800, took the Con?
necticut man's receipt for the land, and
held the land for a rise. That piece of
land now forms part of one of the su?
burbs of Chicago. Judge Davis has
sold $200,000 or $300,000 worth of it,
and has nearly $1,000,000 worth of it
left. It is a striking example of what
the possession of Western property has
jone for its holders; and as the story
bas never before been printed, we1
thonght it would ba interesting enough
It is curious te note the prices paid
for wild animals. Sales of the kind are
rare, and there are so few persons who
uavo any use for a lion or a tiger, that
the amounts paid are seldom remu?
nerativo to the party disposing of this
kind of stock. Woombell's menagerie,
which has been in existence Bines 1805,
waB sold by auction ic Edinburgh on the 1
)th ultimo. The performing elephant)
was purchased for the Manchester Zoo?
logical Gardens for about $3,000. Peli?
cans were knocked down at $35 each, a
price which wonld hardly make their ex?
portation from Louisiana remunerative.
Wolves brought $5.50 eaoh, a price at
tvhich our English cousins can have all
mr coyotes on the prairies. A lion was
?old for $450, and a royal Bengal tigress
for $775. A male dromedary brought
? 150. The sale realized about $15,000.
How MANY ELECTORS?-The question
ins been asked whethei *he electoral
jollege will be made up on the existing
representation in Congress, or under the
lew apportionment. The Louisville Com
nercial publishes a note from a Senator
c Congress, whoso name is not given,
tvhich says: "The question you pro?
found was fully discussed in Congress
nore thuu once, and it has been agreed
ind decided that the State is entitled to
.he number of Presidential electors cor?
responding to the number of representa?
res to which she is entitled under the
lew apportionment, instead of the num?
ber allowed by the old apportionment."
Hon. George W. J alian, of Indiana, in
i letter favoring the Liberal movemout,
mys: "We must destroy the military
