We rcsontntitive of the county if (.inlvoMon.
were elected l.y the votos if the ileinooraiio
pnrty of thnt county. Diu'ng tin- cntivtiss,
my colleague win charged wi h eiiioiiiimi;
cluion sentiments or opinions, which Irail to
thnt principle. The party ly which wo wetu
elected, keenly nmsittve on that gent question,
was vet too just and mnguniiiiimus i; i ondi'inu
without giving Mr. Sherwood a fair hearing.
They d'ul so, ami he satisfied them, not only
if his soundness then, Imt as n citizen tinu
legislator in the State of New York, he had
met nntl manfully resisted the abolitionists of
that State, in defence of the constitutional
rights of the S nitii and hence they conclu
ded that Mr. Sherwood was n slandered miin,
and rallied to his support. Personally I had
known my colleague tint a few mouths, but I
arrived nt the same conclusions, ,!i;d pursued
the same course
Judire then, sir, of tiie surprise and mnrtili-
eniinn with whi.'h i lirrT.l his oninion.. as ar
lmunce.l in his speech on this Hoor yesterday,
From them I could draw no other concisions
than that Im r-'cards slavery as a moral -v ll ;

strnctivc ol the soil, and a Wiyht upon the on-

Hy tnkinif (Jie map of Texas and striking n
line troin Mireveport to sun Antonio, thrniigh
Austin, nnd then from Austin lo Houston, we
will Una the (lisiitnco nbout four hundred and
fifty miles. Then let 119 suppose a railroad
were built on thi line, nnd thnt the Trinity
river were.clcaned out nnd made navigable a
high up n Magnolia j (hen, by n mrict mathc
muticnl calciilntiot, we will find that four-fifth
of the settled portion of the tute will be with
in fifty miles of tho Gulf coast, the irinity riv
er, or the rnilroad. Aid if we will then strike
u line from San Antonio to liulianoln, we will'
lind that live-sixths of thr state will be within
tlmt distnnce. I view it ns n fixed nnd incon
trovertiblefact that n railroad from Shrevcportto
Sun Antonio would ip of mew general uiiH;
lo the people of Texas than double this distance
by any other mute or. routes, rid 1 believe
that every honest man will admit that n road'
on this route would pay better than nny oihei
that can be named j always siipnas'ii"- that the
Eastern terminus ivcre extended to the Mis
sissippi river, which would put usin imme linto .
connection wiih nil ihe yrcat. ifi (to 11 pi hires of
the United Slates. There are already (woor
three charters extending from the Mississippi
to our Eastern boundary, and the one fioin
Vicksburg to Shreveport is now actually under
contract for n portion of the distnnce and the
work in progress. If Texas will do nnyttiit.fr
in her own state in that direction, it will g ice
new enefgy to tlmt enterprise nnd liuMen it?
completion. What can the most sanguine
railroad ninn in Texas hope for more than this '.
I am a thoruucli-srcinar railroad man, and be-
I licve that Texas can do u trrent deal if her re
sources are properly applied and directed
But I am nut of rhtil school of ' politicians to
chnlk out grand scheme of railroads einhrn
cinjj; n distnnce of fourteen or fifteen hundred
miles, comiftetKing on the Gulf coast and tor-'
minnting nowhere, based upon n system of
credit to fie suppored by taxation. The whole
scheme is conceived in ignorance and follv,
nnd if erer commenced will find its grave 111
the swnmps and qnick-sands of the coast; and'
both it and its projectors followed by the curses
and maledictions nf Texas for ages to come. I
hold it as n self-evident truth, that the people
living within sixty or eighty miles of the Gulf
coast have no use for railroads. It is the peo
ple of the up-country who need them j and if
the people of tin? coast will not agree wilh
them on some phvit that will Vmefit them, they
may as well disiTiis thtr'wlile stthjcit to rest;
for they may rely upon it th:'.t t;he chiims of
the up-country are not such fools ns to vote
themselves to be taxed to s.ippnrt iv scheme of
such folly nit. I madness. If wo engage in 11
Slate scheme, we want one that w ill benefit
us. We whim a n.-iiuiu uu il.t: !l'ts:-5 ' si j,ji ,
so that we can go to our lYumds and our friends
" le occati. J hese, on the plan snggesce,
' . .
eip,i nnd conversetl n gooil deal with the eili-
r up-country, and find this to be the
preVniliug opinion from the San Antonio road
j north ; nnd I am now fully satisfied that any
scheme thnt may be .'uhr.iit.ed to the ppnple by
the Legislature that does not contain the gen
eral plan herein set forth, will receive from their
votes its quietus n.id be consigned to oblivion
We deprecutc the idea of loaning tho pubrc
money to cor.ipnnies. We prefer thnt the 5((1tei
shall inukr: the worl's und own them , 'I'll'.'
public lands now hold in reserve by 'nc net of.
Inst session along the line of 32 w;,tl n-0 far to
wards rc-imbtirsing the State, 04 soon ns the
road can he built. It is lime '.l!U donations of
our public (Ionium should cease. Let them
now be set apart ns nn '.ntermil improvement
fund ; and especially 'those or 11 pint of those
now held in reservoN
Will our friend', on. the coast ntrree with us
nnd go hand in '.m'.,d with us in these id ers ?
If so the peop'.e ct Texas will amend the Con-'
stitution and vote for a state scheme. If not the'
idea ma' be regarded ns settled before hand.
From Shreveport to San Antonio, fifty miles
So',th, nnd all North, our interests nre identi
cal. We can be benefitted bv this one road.
Any other will he partial and sectional, or be
yond the ability of the state, and therefore vi
sionary. We will vote ns one man on this
