IIcuhu having resolved Itself Into u com

Union, the Hon, John A. Lognu address
ed the committee on tlio propriety, feas
ibility and constitutionality ofu removal
of the national capital. Ho sent to the
Clerk's desk and had rend tho 'Chronic
le's' account of tho recent
meeting In "Washington in re
gard to the proposed International Kx
hibltlon. He said ho had not expected
to Jndulgo In any argument on tlio sub
ject of the removal of the capital but
when ho saw the array of namea associ
ated Willi that public meeting and read
tho indictment preferred ngalnst Con
gress, chargi ng it with tho commission'
of oll'tiiioc-'liualiiHt the people of Washing
ton nml ot the Dlstrlctof Columbia great
er than tlio.io of J'Jnglaud ugalnst the
peoplo of the colonies before the tea was
tossed Into Boston harbor, hu had set
himsulf down to see whether hu could not
collate tho reasons why the people of the
District Hhould not be relelved of tho
great evils Imposed upon them by Con
gress. He was not acuuated by any
spirit of rovengo or 111 feeling, but be
lieving It his duty, as a representative of
a portion of tlio people, to do Justice lo
ull portions of the eo'tiilry, ho would
tultu this occasion to aw , tii U hu would,
at the propn t.ino, ufler resolution for
the appointment of a committee to exam
Ino and report whether it was practicable,
consistent mid feasible to remove the
capital front tho ulty of "Washington.
Mr. liOgan then proceded to give a
sketch of the historical loca
tion of the capital on the
Potomac liver, and 'showed that one f
the prnulpal arguments in favor of the
selection was that a central position was
a suitable one for a republican govern
ment claiming that the argument which
was good then win still good. Jfi re
plied to the constitutional ohj"ctlon
made by Monitor Howard in tbas, and
argued that If there was. any force in it
the act of 1731. changing the boundary
of the District, wan unconstitutional,
and consequently tho capital hnd never
boon properly located, if it hail been
the object of'tlte frames of the constitu
tion to fetter Cougres for all time In re
gard to the location of the capital they
would not have left it to be Inferred only
by the process of Miblle reasoning It
would have been stated explicitly. lint
such an Idea win contrary to the very
principal of republican government.
These laws were n it to bu unchangeable
like the laws of the .Moles and 1'ersians.

were deemed dciratdc, ho could Hud a
dozen firms who would undertake tl.e

Decenary to think of that. N.me of
those buildings were of a mixed char

C'lUVi'tiieni Kyen If tho ent
of government remained at
Washington it would bu necessary to
remedy thcce defectH. Jiut there were
quarries west of the mountains as well
as OHt of them, and these structure
could be left to Maryland for a capital
and thus componcnte her lor Uic loss of
tliu presence of Congress and of lis ad
mirable society. The West, In inking
fur the removul of the neat of govern
ment, hatt no wlfh to Injure tho citizens
of the District; but It demurred emphat
ically to the idea that the capital was to
be kept her lest the b larding house
keepers of Washington should lo.-o their
boarders, or tlio real estate, owners lose
their tenantry. Hu contended that in
evry point of view there was a neces
idly for n more central fent of govern
ment. It would bu In accordance with
tho general principle of Justice, would
tend to the promotion of domestic trau
qullity and the general welfare of tliu
people, nud the wealth and inlluencu of
tho ill He re nt sections would be made to
couutcrhshinuc each other. The West
aked to have the sent of government
because tho centre of population fell
within the limits of tho West; because
tlio great nucleus of artificial nml natural
highways were found there, nnd because
the great vital forces of the nation would
ultimately bo found there. He quoted
statistics in support of his assertion.
