If so, 1 will ask what pledge is giv- i

guilty of rilling that fund, for the
faith of State is the onl y pledge in
the power of the Legislature to give
for its payment. So that taking
either horn of the dilemma, the Le-
gislature is travelling beyond its

We are asked by the gentleman

very triumphant air, as (hough he
thought, his question unanswerable,
why this Legislature, if it does not
intend repudiating the Planter's

the infernal improvement lands?
