brought in the bill to increase the Governor’s salary,
both declaring themselves satisfied with Mr Sliield't
explanation, the matter here dropped.
The bill concerning tho tenure of Clerics, returnee
from the Senate with amendments, was reported by
Mr Williams of Shenandoah, from the Committee
of General Laws, and the Senate's amendments
agreed to.
Mr. Knox called up tlie bill concernin'' Clerks,
fees, on its second rcad'iig.
Various amendments were ofKjrcd and discussed
by Messrs. Gilnj‘*r, Poindexter, Brodnax, Leigh

offered a substitute to the whole bill.

his substitute for tho nrosent, in order to make way
for an amendment offered by .Mr. Miller of Botetourt,
to the effect of making Clerks liable to the party of
whom lie exacts illegal fees, in th*ec times the
amount cx orted, to be recovered in action on the
filr. Eppes proposed a motion before the court, on
ten days notice, as the mode of recovery, instead of
an action on the case — winch pmp)3ition was ac
cepted by the mover.
Other ain.-ndmems were offered and discussed by
Messrs. Glt-dson, Watts, and Miller of Bet.—when,

Mr Moore replied, when
Mr. Halyburton moved to lay the bill and amend
ments on tbe table, (equivalent to postponement.)
The motion was carried. aye< 63. *io<>s 41X y
Mr. Brodnax called up ihe Pet Tsburg Rail Way
returned from the Senate with an amendment, inter
dicting under Ihe penalty of a forfeiture of the char
ter, the reception of any subscription to the stock, on
the part of ’h>* Government of the U States.
Mr. Brodnax, moved to disagree to the amendment
of the Senate. Professing his entire devotion to the
doctrine of the amendment, when planted in a proper
soil, he viewed it where it was as a fungus. He consid
ered the interpolation of the amendment, time and
place considered, as every way unfortunate—unfortu
nate as regarded the time, at the heel of the s-ssion -
unfortunate in the mode, as derogating from the prin
ciple assorted, by tacking it to every little road bill
If it wasthought necessary to reassert the doctrines of
Virginia, be it so—he had nothing to say. Ue not only
was opposed to the power, but on the original ques- !
tion, he would not vote to confer it He disapproved I
of this manner of ass£diug doctrines right in them
selves, and the tendency of which was inevitable, to
weaken their force. What should be thought of a
Christian, who in full gallow on the street, would stop
to repeat the Apostolic or Nicene creed, howsoever
firmly he believed in it? In regard to this particular
bill, the stock of the Petersburg Rail Way was already
taken: where then was its necessity? Mr. B. depre
cated discussion on this subject, and earnestly intreat
ed the House to abstain from it. He would glance at
another reason, a similar amendment had been attach
ed to the Staunton Rail Way. He disliked the idea, of
attaching this prohibition to that bill, because some
gentlemen might think, the District interested in that
road was infected.
Mr. Eppes supported the amendment of the Senate.
Mr. Campbell of Brooke, moved to amend the Se
nate’s amendment, by striking out the words “Govern
ment of the U. States” —which motion he warmly
supported—denouncing the amendment of the Senate
as an infringement of the right of political opinion, by
attaching political creeds to private acts.
Mr. Williams of Shenandoah, called upon every
part of the House to vote against the amendment of
tho gentleman, from Brooke, and then to vote to
disagree to the Senate’s amendment. A friend of
the doctrine asserted, he deprecated this amendment
cf the Senate, as out of place and unnecessary. He
had indulged the hope that this Legislature would
have attended to the business of the country, and re
frained from discussions on abstract questions.
Mr. McFarland advanced similar views.
1 He question was then taken on Mr Campbell’s
amendment, and carried, ayes 60, noes 56.
The question recurring on the motion to disagree to
the amendment as amended,
Mr. Miller of Pow. and Mr Gilmer professing their
attachment to State Rights, reprobated the 'amend
inent ofthe Senate as uncalled for and unnecessary.
Mr. Gilmer denounced the amendment in the warmest
terms, as proscribing the right of freedom of opinion.
.Mr. Claiborne rose and proceeded to support the
amendment and the doctrines of State Rights with
much warmth, when
Mr. Williams of Harrison, enquired, as all the a
mendment in regard to the General Government had
been stricken out, if the gentleman could now discuss
State Rights?
The Chair decided that the gentleman was nut of
Some conversation arose among Messrs. Clai
borne, McFarland, Lewis, and Rives of Prince George,
when Mr. Claiborne, proceeded with bis observations.
Mr. Williams of Ifarrrison, succeeded in a few brief
and pungent remarks in reply to Mr. Claiborne, and in
reprobation of the amendment of tho Senate.
Mr. Eppes made a few observations to the effect,
that the friend- of the Petersburg Rail Way should
vote for the amendment, in order to avoid the suspi
cion of voting against it, from interested motives
Mr. Pres on explained his motives in voting to disa->
grec to the Senate's amendment, although opposed to
tne power of improvement by the Federal Government.
Other explanations were made by Messrs. Brodnax,
Booker, Eppes, and Campbell of Brooke.
Mr. Campbell now moved to reconsider the vote
striking out the words “Government of the U. States,”
jo order to take the ayes and noes.
After some words from Mr. Witcher, the House re
fused to reconsider.
1 he Senate'3 amendment was then disagreed to by
a large majority.
Mr. Lewis moved to takcaip the Staunton Rail Way,
returned from the Senate with the same amendment
made to the Petersburg Rail Way, and with Another
striking out the 29lh section, continuing the road west
of Staunton.
Mr. Moore moved to disagree t j the first amend
ment. lie did not wish to discuss the principle. He
deprecated any discussion as here out of place.
Mr. Claiborne called for the ayes and noes, which
was sustained.
Mr. Jackson said the ayes and noes would furnish
no test of the opinions of gentlemen. But if the ab
stract question of State Higlit3 came up, tie for one
was ready to discuss it, and to record bis vote against
the doctrine as he had done five years ago.
After some remarks from Messrs. Claiborne, Camp,

So the House disagreed to the amendment.
The amendment striking out the 29th section of the
bill, authorising the extension of the Kail ltoad vves
terly from Staunton to the Kcnawhu or Ohio, now com
ing up,
Mr. Summers olfered an amendment replacing the
~9th section with a proviso requiring the commence
ment of the road (westwardly of Staunton; within
live years from the passage of the act, and finish it
within seven thereafter, and a farth. r proviso, saving
to the State the privilege of making the whole or any
part of the road. J
Mr Summers supported it with much farce, reprobatiiw the
principle upon which the Senate had stricken out the 29th Sec
lion—namely that the road from Staunton might interfere with
the interests ami vested rights of the James River company.
I he justice and the expediency of this principle were combatted
iry Air bummers, and the attempt to contrnul the people of the
"if** lbeir choicc of markets, indignantly denounced.
Mr Garland of Nelson, moved to lay the hill for the present
on the table, which gave rise to some discussion amon^ Messrs
Gariand, Lewis and Gilmer—when the moiion was carried.
Jn motion of Mr Lucas, the hill concerning Pilots and their
foes, was recommitted to the Committee that brought it in.
Mr Caldwell, from the Select Committee, for that purpose
presented a bill incorporating a company to construct a rail
road from the Potomac River, near the Ketoctin creek in Lou
doun county to the waters of Goose creek, to intersect the
Snickers Gap l unipike Road.

making his way homewards broke down on the night of the

peated evidences of tl.eir warm approbation—coming
as it does from so many most highly respectable men,
some of whom were companions of my youth and as
sociates of my manhood—I am enabled to look across
the false fire of the moment &. the bitterness of public
rancour to a more propitious period, when devotion
to an individual will no longer be the standard of tiic
claims of an old servant on the confidence and const
deration of his fellow citizens.

Owning Military Lauds in Kentucky.
Il.ive in Hickman county, Kentucky, at Columbus or Iron
Banks, on the Mississippi Kiver; i am the surveyor of the
Virginia Military Lands on State Lstablisiiuymt, and have sur
veyed a grind many of them south west of the Tennessee river,
since the death ofmy predecessor, Maj Win Croatian;—lam
agent lor a number of persons owning those lands, and would
willingly act for others who may think proper to entrust their
business with inc. I am probably belter acquainted with the
situation ol those lands, than any other person; be that as it
may, they want attention; and v nether they employ me or not,
I would advise the owners to pay immediate attention to them: j
some ol which have been pillaged of their timber, some have '
been cnteied as Warrant Lands and persons living on them, I
and the occupant laws of our state may, after a while, put the!
owners to considerable expense and trouble I have guarded]
many of those lands as well as 1 could, without having more
authority There, arc large bodies of those Military Lands lying1
together, and but few persons living on them, some with leases,
hut more squatters, not calculated to enhance their value. Tlirre
ore ten or twelve indcs square of those lands, near me, of which
I would advise the owners (knowing it to lie for their interest,)
] to sell a small part, say two nr three hundred acres out of each
! 1,(V10 acre trai», rvrn at a low price, and I am confident, that
i in two or three years it would enhance the value of the balance
i to duublc or treble what the whole tiact would he woith, to re
j main as it now is. Person? buying and settling on part, would
j lake care of the balance and induce others to come into the
j netglxitirhood; and it is a settlement that gives value to laod.
] l would act as agent for owners of lands on the Cumberland
and Tennessee rivers, as well as south west of Tennessee,
j where 1 live, on as good terms as any one who will attend as he
! ought, to the business. 1 shall give no references for recont
) mendationg; I am well known in Kentucky, and have some ac
quaintances m my native slate, Virginia; if persons have not
confidence in n»e, ! do not desire their business; if I get no
! agencies, I am willing to spend a trifle in giving the owners of
! those lands, this notice. There are many of the Military
; Lands south west of the Tennessee river, that are interfered
with by Ttea-ury Warrant claims, and are in possession of the
: Claimants or their Tenants, some of which are not worth a law
suit in the Federal Court, and if Congress are disposed to tic
] justice towards the Officers and Soldiers of the Virginia Stale
] Line, they should suffer the owners to withdraw them and pro
I cure ?<*rip for the amount of the it Warrants, or they will eer
] tainly be in a worse situation than those who neglected to locatt
j their warrants at all. RICHARD TAYLOR, Jit.

WILL Maud the ensuing season at :ny farm, nine m'ries front

place to f lerlericksburg, and known as Half Sink
It is not saying too much, (for i submit it to the candor of
every gentleman acquainted with the facts, to sustain roe in tlio
assertion,) w* .-n I say, that his colts are universally acknow
ledged, to possess much size, strength, and iieauty, as any
coltb that have ever been produced hy any one horse in Yir^N
uia i know several, that cannot be purchased for let* than so
vrn or eioht hundred dollars: and I have, myself, been oft'ered
$1,000 for one at a year old—the estimate at whacb they arts
held hy their owners, I take to he the strongest recommendation
that can be offered in behalf of untried colts.
The season will commence on the 15th of February, and ten
mutate on the 1st of July. Terms as heretofore; Fifty Dollars,
to lie discharged by the payment of Thirty-five, at any timo
during trie season; Sixty Dollars insurance; One Dollar 10 tl#
Groom, which is expected, cithct when tfij mare is brought, ct
taken away.
Extensive pastures are provided, and mares fad regtdatly'
ussless otherwise directed, at twenty-five cents a day.
Gentlemen who sent mares last year hy the season to Gohan*
na, that did not prove in foal, (if any there he) are informed that
they can he sent again; and no charge made for the services of
die Horse, unless they should prove in foal; or in other words,
the marcs will be insured at the price of the season.
The Editors of the Political Arena and Petersburg Intelligent
