Mr. Prmidcut, I voted to bring tin original bill before the Senate for the purpose of otfuriiij. i an amendment at the projsr time; but hitherto 1 lima ] not been able to get it before the beuute As I shall op I | p use the amendment now umier consideration, I have ' thought proper, b'.for the vote is taken, to bring to the minds of the senators the one which 1 will offer in itorder, should I have- the opportunity of doing so; but ? to the merits of the one now be-fore- the Senate I shall e-u) a few words. ( Mr. President, I have thought it pro|>er to take thh course because 1 feel dee-ply intereste d in the construction ' of this rou I; not in a Bectional pednt of view only, but te. | attorn tlutt location for the mail tint wouhl la; for the be-at interests of the whole country. It appears to no tliat If any ofthe lines for the location of this relied a heretofore spoken of are te) be coueidciod, we shoule! adopt tin- language used in the bill in its lite-nil sen. ee, when it provides that the roiul glialt be constructed on tlie nicest eligible route, reference being luul to feasi billfcy, shortness, ami economy. Now, eleies the; pending amenduient, wliie h proposes to limit tlie road to a rieiite " between the thirty fourth and forty-thirei degree s, prescnl un opjsjrtunity to select the; nearest, the cheapest, am the most practicable route tee the Piicitio const ' II not, 1 contend that'the whole; lield stioulel be thrown open *e> in to afford a chance for a route below the thirty-fourth doit grte. i. According to thoexplorations of the various routes, ,oe repeirted, it will be seen that some have been considered impracticable, uuel others, from tlie nature of the conn > try over which tlee-y pass, as well as tlieir great length, would cost on unnecessary expenditure of money and dvlay. It will appear from tlie table of cost and distances thai amongst tliem all (and I believe there are eight or ten ol them) tlie southern route from Fulton to San Diego, via Kl l'aso, is the shoitest and most practicable one by ovet fifty i>er cent., after allowing for that link in tic roud ' which Is now lining constructed by private enterprise, .. aided by the Statu of Texas. If however, upon turtle a it examination, a more available one can be found, it should ! j by nil means be adopted. 1 have ever been of the opinion, Mr. President, thai Some place on the Mississippi river should bo selected a? tho starting-point for this great national highway, and ~ its terminus to in- the nearest practicable point on tin l_ 1'acitic coast, it appears clear to my mind that the in teres* of the whole people would tie most effectually guarded imil protected liy entrusting the location of thh road to the cure and direction of tlie capitalists who mac '' undertake tlie work, with tlie proper guards and restric !, tions. In tin first pluce, they would be required to locate the line of road, according to tlie provisions of tin bill, "on tlie most eligible route, reference being had te feasibility, shortness, and economy but, before com " milting this important trust to tho charge of underta* kors, we sliould tirst consider what their interest would prompt them to do. It is, however, reasonable to suppose that they would select a starting-point within tire * space allowed, with leferenco to the whole country, bo in to concentrate at some central and convenient point tlie largest portion of (ho travel audcommerce for the patron ; age of their road. I have not a t.ablo of tlie railroad statistics before me, ! but 1 believe the estimate in that there are about twenty thousand miles of railway east of the Mississippi liver, in I and as many miles of navigable streams, forming a com [>, plcte net-work from Maine to Georgia, and from tin '> : (>ulf coast to the lakes of the North. And it will be ob "> served that the general tendency of those roads is westr'| | ward, many of litem reaching from the Atlantic coast, * by one continuous Hint, to the Mississippi river ; other , terminating on the Ohio river from tire north, tapping it at various places from its bend to Its month ; whilst tie i toads from the Gulf coast reach far up into the interior of the country ; all seeming to be in search of a. passage h west to the Pacific. Aud now, Mr. President, rve must east our mind west, and examine critically the physical condition of the coutl II try over which wo have to make a road, as well as tin ''' roads west already built, and those in prospect, and set the best and most practicable route for a connexion with i the Pacific coast. I am not familiar with their railroad prospects in the extreme northwestern portion ; but i will say, from St. Txmis there is a rood running west from that place one hundred and seventy-five or two r hundred miles. 1 am not certain us to its length. The Cairo and Fulton road has a grant of six sections '' of land per mile to aid in its construction, and has, 1 am ,,r told, a |>ortion of it under contract. The (Memphis and i- kittle Hock railroad, which intersects the Cairo and Ktllton rood, lias a similar grant from the government, ami " lifty miles in running order. The Mississippi, Woehita, ' and Bed river road, sometimes known as the Gainer k (muling road, the whole length of which will be one Jinn ( dred and eighty miles, has one hundred miles graded, and a portion of it ready for the iron. These roads form 1 a junction at Fulton, a little south of the thirty-fourth ,1 parallel, lire Memphis, KI Paso, and I'aciflc road leaves at that point for Fi I'uso, a distance of about eight hundred miles. The Vicksburg and Shreveport road is now being constructed, and is to bo completed in 1801, acI , cording to the contract, it connects with the southern u Pacific road at the eastern lioundary line of Texas, a litt tie nortli of the thirty-second parallel. From this ]>oint the southern Pacific road runs west to El Paso, it has tw ent y live miles now in running order, and recently lifty more under contract; and perhaps it would not lie amiss hole for me to say that but for some unfortunate diflicnl..He li have existed ill that company a much greater amount of road would now lie in running order. I am happy to ?iy, however, that these difficulties have been recently removed, and that at a late meeting held at Louisi'lllo, where more than three-fourths of the stock were represented, they agreed harmoniously to prosecute the work. The v. a] runs west, to a point where it will form a junction with the Memphis, El Paso, nnd I'aciflc road, somewhere on the Trinity river ; and from that point the energies, the interests, and the capital of both ' companies will bo united in the construction of one trunk road to El I'.is >. The Opolousas road, too, is completed y to Berwick's Bay, from whence there is a communication to Galveston by water, and a continuation of the same 3 line by land to the Sabine Puss, where it connects with i other Texas roads running north and west, by way of Houston, aiisiiii, ami r^an Antonio, 111 uie <nrecuon 01 t K1 Paso. The Galveston and Henderson road also has - | forty-seven mil- s completed and twenty-live miles under - contract. The T> xss, Central, and Houston rood have had fifty miles running siieceRHfully for several years ; r and 1 inn told that by July they will have at least seven a ty-live miles in running order. This road will connect ii with the Memphis, El Paso, and l'aeitie road somewhere 1 on the Trinity river. I consider these (lull' roads of vast importance in this great enterprise ; for it is a wellknown fact that commerce will, as far as ]x>ssiMe, seek water transportation. 1 lmve thus attempted to bring the minds of senators to the fact that the Texas roads, in connexion with the - roads west 01 the .Mississippi river, carry i him great, worK to Kl I'iiko. Accoiding to tlie l>est inforiiintion wo have, j it, is only nix hundred and fifty miles from Kl Paso to Man t Piego. TIiuh, if tho Kl Paso route bo taken, there will lie only Bix hundred and fifty miles to be constructed by '' government aid ; and, according to the beat Information that can be had, there are but few obstacles in the way of its construction, there being streams and natural watertanks at convenient distances. In the absence of these, well-water can lie leul at the distance of forty or fifty feet. Such is the opinion of Mr. Gray, derived from actual observation while engaged in the boundary-line survey under the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, in 1H52. Next, I would call the attention of senators to the dis, erepancy between the costs and distances of a road 011 the I various routes proposed. 'J'he shortest route actually surveyed within the range of country prescribed in the amendment of the Senator from Massachusetts (Mr. WinI son) is two thousand miles ; while, on the route of which I have spoken, the aid of this government will bo required for only six hundred und fifty miles Some may, perhaps, think that this aiguinent, falls to the gtotiud for the reason that they suppose the Texas r sals will not be built. In answer to that 1 will say tluu I have every - confidence in the completion of those roads. Some, jier hajis, may not be built : but the leading muds across the country, the main arteries of which I have spoken of, will ? undoubtedly bo constructed. Having said this, perhaps it may lie neoessary that 1 should give some of the reasons which lead mo to this conclusion In the first place, these roads have received a mngnifi cent grant of land from the State of Texas sixteen see I tious of land to the mile, with i reservation for the bs a 859. TWO CENTS. Ition <ij the road. In addition to tluit we have a scii <<l foml ot $.'1,000,000, which his bci u uod will I ionic : to tlrcsc roads to aid and assist in their construi tiou to | the extent of $0,000 u mile. besides, we htfvo u pecnh.ii i imputation in Texas ; our people are hugely interested in . I the real estate of the country, the value of which, 0. . , some extent, depends on the completion of these roads We have a larger number of landholders in pr. >|?u'tlou to , our population than any State in the I'nlon. Front tin poorest to the most wealthy our people are taking stock l in the roods. Why ? lkcause, aside from the 1 onus to , he received from our magnificent laud grants and the in cicased value of real estate, we hftYr la Texas the finest country in the world over which to construct a railr ad, ( uud a country so situated, geographically, that we 1 ive , no navigation, eoinparativcly speaking, and are driven lo , make roads from necessity. These are some of the reasons which induce sue to lielivc that such roads in II,c hands of such people ore hound to succeed. As an c*i , I dunce of the cheapness of llieir construction I will read a [ short paragraph from a report of the president of lie Vickshurg, Kl J'aso, and l'ncilic road, iuiiuediutely on I this line. He says : " Tire grading of the first fifty miles will cost $.">6,000 |See the able report of our engineer. | These estimates . i we'liave tested by letting out twenty miles of tic' load, uud the contractors m ike handsome profit-, uii their e< nI tracts." x. a '?Tbe ability to proceed with the constructhm increases with the progress of the works. Jf , the land giuul should he sold at $1 fir) per acre it would amount to over $16,1100 |<cr mile, a sum fully se.lmieiit to pay for the entire cost of the road ; and if the grunt sliould be worth as much as the grant to the Central illi uoisioad, ten dollars per acre, it would amount to $101), 000 per mile ; ami after paying for the road would leave a bonus of $gfi,00<> a mile to ho divided among the stockI holders." lu that country, where there is in many places but little more to do tluui lay down the iron, raihouds can f bo constructed for $16,000 j>er mile. When 1 say this, , 1 am not imagining what can be done, but 1 am speaking j of wliut lias been done. 1 do not pn tend to suy Uml [ ! the whole line will he constructed for thiis amount ; but i do say that the cost of the whole line will not average \ more than $2U,00U .1 mile, and at moat $25,000 ; and it [ can only cost the latter sum for small sections. These estimates may startle some gentlemen who live in other regions of the country, where railroads have to lie built over lofty mountains by inclined planes, and through deep cuts, and carried over broad rivets. NVc have no such difficulties in our way. 1 would further suggest the advantages of the climate in the latitude over which the I'll l'.iso route must pass a latitude si favorable for the business of its construction and of its operation ; being lie; from snow and ice at : all seasons, which is often found troublesome in a more northern latitude. And, further still, this road would reach from the extreme northeastern portion of the UniI ted States to the extreme Southwest, passing in a diagonal direction across the Union, thereby making It equally convenient for both the North and the South to reach it by branch roads. And still another idea : It would embrace in its course the niunufuctuiing, grain, cotton, and sugar interests ; we should necessarily, therefore, bit thrown together in the course of business and travel from ditferent localities, and this would alford an opportunity to get better acquainted, and better understand each other and our institutions ; and, although it may appear to some of small importance, if of any importance at all, yet 1 honestly believe that such an iliterchange would do more'towards harmonizing and binding together the different sections of the Union than all the ! excited discussions and newspaper warfare could a< com i plish in all time to come. I do not bring forward this as an argument to induce the location of the road on any I given line, hut only incidentally, and in connexion with other results. And now, Mr. President, 1 will briefly consider the necessity and advantage of this road in a national point of view. I will not enter into details on this point, for the question lias been ably discussed, and at length, by honorable senators heretofore. 1 licg leave, however, to call tlie attention of senators to the fact thai millions of people are anxiously waiting for the accomplishment of this , desirable object, by which the federal government, wilh, out any actual outlay of government means, would not , only accommodate mid protect her citizens, but would deI velop the resources of an immense country, and in reuse > her commerce and revenue beyond the calculation of the most fruitful imagination. , i Hut, in time of war with foreign nations, the inestimable advantage of speedy communication between our At. lantic and Pacitic posst radons will bo most, lelt and appreciated. Men and munitions of war, by thousands, could [ he made available almost ns soon as called fur, ami at conqiarati vclv small expense, ami (litis, by a timely prept r.rutiou, wo should not only prevent a war, but save the lives of thousands of our citizens and millions of dollars ; to the country. 'JHE WABASH AT CONS'l'ASTltfUJ'Li:. [Tnuulalisl from "/at /VrCr d'Oticnt."} i i lu a recent uunilier wo gave some particulars concerning the United States screw-l'rigato "Wabash," commanded by Captain Uarron, and bearing the broad pendant of Commodore Ijtvulcttc, whose rank corresponds with tiiat of rein adni'vr.l. \Ve now take pleasure In publishing further illicit ting details upon this magnificent vessel, and the. object of her visit to this capital. Commodore llroeso visited Constantinople last year in tlie American sail ng frigate Congress, 48 ; and two years before Commodore Striugbum preceded him in the Cumberland, 48, also a sailing vessel, 'illesc frigates are of the usual size and construction of vessels of their class, and the calibre of their guns is much Inferior to those of the Wabash. The aim of the American government in building vessels of the class of the Wabash is to give better accommodation to their crews, uud to enable them to carry, not ni ticreased number of guns, hut ordnance of much heaviei calibre. Thus the "Niagara," though forty l'cct longer than the "Wabash," carries only twelve guns ; the hit- j ter, though pierced for lifty guns, curri s forty only ; it j has been erroneously stated that she carries an armament : of sixty guns. She carries two pivot gnus on her fore- j castle and quarter deck on an entirely new principle, the invention of Commander Jiahlgren, of the American i navy ; they throw solid shot of l.'iti and shells of 105 I pounds. The remainder of her spar dock guns are shot 1 or shell (il-pounders ; these on the main deck are I'ahl- ! grcn thipounders for solid shot or shell. 11. i. M. the Sultan having given direction last win- I ter to have a screw line-of-battle ship of loO guns con- | structed in tire U'uited States for the Ottoman navy, the | Minister of Murine, Mehomnied .\li I'.isha, select* d Hear Admiral Mehcmined l'ashu In proceed lo the United States to obtain information on the subject. The Tresulent of the United States, witli the view of j promoting II. I. M.'b visitors, directed a comrniHsion, ' composed of the most eminent officers, constructors, and j engineers of the American navy, to prepare the necessary plans for tire construction ami armament of the Ottoman j lino-ot-buttle ship. II was intended that she should lie like the " Niagara," .'lid feet in length ami one may , L-n><ily imagine the magnificent proportions of n vessel of I this Bine by those of tlio " Wubanli." It wns also In' tended thnt she should he built au<l m ined under the suI jierintendeuee of otlieers of the American navy. The intention of II. I. M. to have u ship of this class constructed in the United States gave general satisfnetion. Prcaident Buchanan tendered Mehetnmcd Pasha the most Hal tcring reception, and when he was about to return to Constantinople the " Wabash" was placed at his dis! posal. This explains the reeent visit of the "Wabash" to this j capital and tlic hiiudsoino reception she received from the j Ottoman government. 11. 1. M. was pleased to visit het and to express his udmiration to Comtnodoro Lavallstte. His Majesty afterwards gave nudience to the Commodore and his otlieers, and desired the minister of the United ( States to express to President Buchanan his warm uc I knowledgnicnts for his courtesy to Admiral Meheiumed | l'ssli a.

Mr. President and .cantors, that u . proceed ut onec to the consideration of 'hi. report, and tlmt it be a I >pted 'J'hat is the purpose for which 1 rise, iief.de, however, sulmiittlug that motion to the vole of the Senate, I hope that I may be indulged in ft few wonts of parting from this chamber. This is to ho the last day of our session here ; and this place, which has known us so long, is to know us no tnoro forever us a Senate. The parting seems to me. sir, to bo . somewhat of a solemn one, and full of eventful recoilec- ! lions, i wish, however, only to say a few words. Many associations, pleasant and proud, bind us and i our hearts to this [.luce. We cannot hut feel their influence, especially !, Mr. President, whose lot it baa been to serve in this body more years than any other member now present. That we should all he attached to it, that ! my longer me oei ili.m should attach me to It, is most natural. Mr. 1'ieiident, we cannot quit this chamber without sonic feeling of sacred sadness. This chamber has been the scene of great events. Here questions of American constitutions and laws have been debated ; qiloctions of pence ami war have been debated and decided ; questions of empire have occupied the attention of this assemblage iu times post: this was tho grand theatre upon which these thing , have been enacted. They give a sort of consecrated character to this llall. .Sir, great men have been the actors here. The illustrious doa.l that have distinguished this body in times past naturally rise to our view on such an occasion. I i speak only of what I have seen, and but partially of that, when 1 say that here, within these walls, I have seen men whose feme is not surpassed, and whose power and ability and patriotism are not surpa-Hed, by any tiling of Grecian or of Unman name. 1 have seen ( lav ami Webster and ( alb.,mi anil Denton, and Leigh anil Wright and Clayton, (last though notleast,) mingling together in this body at etie time, and uniting their counsels lor the benefit of thoir country, They seem to our imagination and sensibilities', 011 such an occasion as thin, to lmvc h it. their impress ou these very walls ; and this 111 ales tic dome sec not almost yet to echo with the voice of their eloquence. Thin lull seems to be a local habitation for their names. This hall is full of the pure odor of their justly-earned fame. There are others besides those I have named, of whom I will not speak, because they have not yet closed their career- not yet ended their services to the country ; uud they will receive their reward hereafter. There are a 1 host of others that f might mention that deserve to bo mentioned but it would take too long. Their names are in no danger of being forgotten, nor tlicir services unthought of or unlionored. Sir, we leave behind us, in going from this hall, these associations, these pioud imaginations so well calculated I to prompt to a generous emulation of their services to j their country ; but we will carry along with us, to the new chamber to which we are to go, the spirit and the ! memory of all these things ; we will carry with us all the inspiration which our illustrious predecessors are calculated to give ; and wherever we sit we shall he the S Senate of the United States of America a great, a pow- , | ci fill, a conservative body in the government of this ^ ! country, and a body that will maintain, as 1 trust and 1 believe, under all circumstances and in all times to come, j tbe honor, the light, and the glory of this country. j because we leave this chain her, we shall not leave he- | hind us any sentiment of patriotism, any devotion to the | country which the Illustrious exemplars that have gone I before us have set to us. These, like our household gods, jj will be carried with lis ; and we, the representatives of | the Mates of this mighty Union, will be found always ,i equal, I tiust, to the exigencies of any time that may r one upon our country. To matter under what sky wo 111 iv sit, no matter what dome rtiuv coyer us, the great patriotic spirit of the Senate of tbe United (States will be. there i and J have an abiding confidence that it will never tail in the ja'rfoiinunce of its duty, sit yhore it . may, even though it were in a ilosort. lint it is yet, sir, not possible to leave this hall with , Ulll, CtlMIII^ DC1IIIMI us lll.UIJr lOllgllJg Willi UUgCIlUg JOUkX. It lias been the Ma:lie of the past; the new chamber is to j | be the scene of the future ; anil that future, I hope, will ; not be dishonored by any comparison to be made with the past. It, too, will have its illusti'ittionsof great |>nl?I if services rendered by great men ami great patriots; and this body, the great preservative element of the government, will discharge till its duties, taking care to prej serve the Union of the States which they represent-?the source of all their honors, the source of the trust which I they sit here to execute, the source as it has been and as j it will be of their country's greatness, happiness, and | prosp rity, in times to cotne as it has been in the time j that is past. Mr. ['resident, T cannot detain you longer. 1 move that the vote of the Senate be now taken on the report which has been presented, and that it lie adopted. I hu VICE PRESIDENT.
