The rail road system is the only sure and uninter rupted means of connection therewith, and that for the six months in the year, when, from opposite causes, eiiher icc or draught the otdtnary channels of inland navigation are closed. Besides great rail road com munications, wc must also connect the val l.cs of the Mississippi and St. Lawrence rivers;—lo effect which, the limais river l>rc8«ois great natural advantages.

Such a course will hac* great effect on the improve mt nt of the Missist-ppi valley and its con nection with the Atlantic States. I now come to another point. I do not »ant to allude tr> the Protective system, nor I discuss the merits or demerits of a high or the present tariff. Nor do 1 desire at all t<» force mv opinions on any gentleman present. But one subject may incidentally demand our considération on one article ol duty which may perhaps be diveussed, without entering in the province of Legis lative balls, and which ha« an immediate bearing on the present topic. Individuals may accomplish much by their subscrip tions to public enterprise; Wit regard the expense of a rail road at present prices.— The usual T rail road iron, ns imported into ih's country under the present tariff, cost not less than $2,000 per mil* for the duty. Now were this duty repealed, it would virtually operate as so much money actually aubir-tibed to tho completion of a road. Our own tr.ondfacturcrs can make such iron at from fi 'ty tivs to aix'v dollars per ton. This I have from the b"»! «u thorit v, and from a gentleman who at this tim« has n-.t less than 8300.000 invrsted in iron works. There are at present but two manufactories of rail road in ibis country, but I apprehend many will be induced lo engags therein on terms which will produce an ample supply, at a fair profit, on prices not lo exceed seventy-five dollars per ton. I sincerely trust the Tariff'on railroad iron will be reduced. Tb* importance of this subject will be duly considered by this As sembly, nnd I shall be glad to bear any facts which gentlemen tiers »hall be able to present, in the course of our future deliber ations. ym. I have now passed, I believe, through all that we can *»k of the General Govern ment, except one topic. We must look to a roEEiUN ns well ns a homo market.— The present tariff'is a barrier to the com maod of the foreign market. But i re. Commend, even if this be ail, that we shall not battle this here.
