Mr. SCOTT. Of Warren, had opposed .the

, Mr. DEVORE favored the reference? He
thought Cincinnati ought te be treated just like
aov other place, There was no fair oamontl-
tloo allowed la the bill, by which th aetna) val.
ne of ihe property eculd be determined. .The
only way, ia bis opinion, to settle the matter
properly, wonld be to Invlteench competition as
would fix the valus of , the property it, wja, pro
posed to oeae , ,( ; i'...ui it
Mr. CLAPP favored the ssstsga of the bill
fie thought it beneath tbe dignity of tbe great
8tateof Ohio te pUy the sharper about tbe price
of thia property, which was of no use to any
body but Cincinnati. iNo court la this elviliatd
world would censure tbe citiitns pf that city, if
tney would at. once rue up an?, abate as a
nuisance.- j .u, - . .ivi - ii?r 1
Mr. PLANTS bad visited the property., , He
could not very well ; estimate its value, bnt be
was certain that, in oroer to. give the iqoreased
valde that was talked about, to the oity proper
ty, would cost the. city fully at much ae she
wonld gain. W were merely prOpoelng to ex
tort money from the. people of that' oity, to en
able them to abate a nuisance. He doubted that
tbe Stat of Ohio really had the title to tbe land
lo fee simple, II had been condemned for the
purpose of a public highway, as a canal. -,Wbtn
the objeot for which it was condemned ceased,
be did not snpposs tbe State any longer had he
right to bold on to tbe condemned property
Either the 8tate ought herseli to build tbe oul
vert, or she ought ixeely to permit the city to. do
It. ' "' H i i'i ,fiti :
Mr. W00D1 stated that hts yery strong Im
pression had always bsen.thattb State had
bought the fee simple to these laodr.There
seemed, however, to be a difference of, opinion,
or ot information, on tbe subject..' and therefore
be hoped the reference would, be made.- Bui
besides, he tbongbt there ought to be a delay
with this bill, till the fate of ibe Lease Bill
should be ascertained ia tbe Senate. ..Whether
tbe proposed, lesaeet, w6uld desire to' use , this
portion of tbe eaoal or not, he could aot say. bnt
it had beeo so stated, and ths matter, bad, ijttier
therefore beeo postponed for the present,, , '',
, Mr, ANDREWS regarded tbe tiUe as a mere
eatement, which hd already virtually reverted
to the original owners.. . Heooald see, therefore.
no trouble with reference to tbe propoeed leate,
oecause ne denied tnu tuisj waa any .longer a
part ol tbe Miami .Canal.. He wae ready to
cede the property at once, without consideration.
aa but a just tribute to and area dm to the city
of Cincinnati, : . j .: . - t '.'".t
: Mr. FELLOWS Bald everybody regarded ibis
property ae a nuisance. ..What wae the use of
delay t Gentlemen talked of selling this prop
erty and having competition.. Did .they mean
to sell that dirty ravine, full, of all manner of
nastlnessT But ths bill wst worthiest it did
not eome at the point at all, Jt oeithsr meant
one thing nor another. If the Cincinnati dele
gation were satisfied, however, let it go, i
Mr. COX thought the discussion had taken a
new 'phase this afternoon. Everybody cow
seemed to sympathise with the city, and talked
about the nuisance. , But there were some
polots that seemed to have been overlooked.-
Could not those locks be repaired, so that com.
munieation could be bad between the Ohio river
and the canal? Was there anv oart of the
eanals whsre repairs could bs better placed? It
bad been stated that it was never used. He bad
himself seen boats within two of the seven)
locks from the river. J 4 " V ' , 1
Mr. SCOTT, of Warren. 'einUlheJ ttat 'the
boats went down on back water from the river.
Mr. ROGERS said the lock wers a 1 tse-
less tnd dilapidated had not been' died1 lor
Mr. LUl was still of tb opinion that repairs
might render this part of the canal uteful. " i -
Sir. BtUTT. of Jefferson, bad had occasion
to examine this subject. : The State owns tbe
title la fee simple to a fjirt of the gror.nd.-r
Communication between the canal and river bad
been found utterly Impossible, because of the
sudden rite (orer 0 feet sometimes) In the
Ohio, sweeping over' ths locks, carrying la
driftwood, and flooding the banks of the canal.
For thl very f eaaoa, this portion of. tbs-cantl
had bees abandoned. Under tufibctroarostaneee,
no company wae ever likely to attempt any jise
of this portion of th canal.

Mr. HOLMES vouched, for th ability of Mr.

Mr. nULMi.3 motion to strike oat wu
agreed to.
Mr. JONE3 offered a substitute for tbe s
Uon struck out, provldipg fuj.a pqblio letting of
tne canais. t ,
Mr. SCHLEICH thought this as, food a time
as any to dlscussuhe two modes of leuing. He
bed al ways been opposed to separating the canals
irom tne control ot the otate. Bat, owing to
bad management ofthe Pnblfo Works, the Leg
islature, bs was satttfled has determined to
lease them. He badVbeejTcompelled to yield
bis opinions, and baduow concluded to accept
the least objeotionableVplan of disposing of lb
canals.3 lie regarded luo best mode of manag
ing them to be thatembodied In the eontraot
bill reported by Mrf Jone . But tbe Legisla
ture would not acoept IbatX . Jn the next place,
be believed -il tie beet -policy for the General
Assembly to lease the Publlo Works directly,
at he thought sublio letting bv the Board would
be unsafe. yOur object should be to get the
largest amount possible'' for these Works, pro

- Mr. MoCALLooald'riotiiefCeive the policy
of the Legislature leaslog these Worka.to any

publlo vendue." LeasUiS to any particular oar-

the Legislature -cannot know bidders; but must
take the word ol others foMt, and that mode la
unsatisfactory.
Mr. PARISH, would vote to Insert Mr. Coop
er's -name, but It1 would not 'vindicate bis
views upon tbe measure.
Mr. SCHLEICH did not apprehend anything
from sharpen of oorruntlon aue-o-Mtad hi M.
McCalli He" thought It time that Senators
should act without counting tbe effect It might
have on their constituents. If tbe canals
should be. offered at publio vendue, and should
ooi b disposed of, the beat Legislature -would
have tbe same trouble we bavebad; betides, tbe
inoreased expenie to the State would be formi
dable, ir we let these. canal and we are as
eured the contract will be nrbfltable to the lea

or death, rbe canals should be leased tola

Mr. FERGUSON explained that lessees will
be required to give five sureties, who would be
careful not to lose tbe amount of their bonds J
Mr. MOORE waa opposed to leasing.. The
State ought to control these- Works.' But the
I bid or Mr. Cooper, bslog double that of the bid
embodied in the House bill, shows that there is
lometniog 10 ine canals which we do not per
ceive. Us thought tbey could be made self.,
sustaining. He would make a trial of the con
tract system recently adopted by the Senate. If
It did not answer, after another year 'a. trial, he
wohld tell them out entirely." But, If we are lo
lease them, he waa in favor of publlo rendu.
Thirty dayi' notice would be sufficient to draw
out. all lbs 'bids whloh would be mads ia the
