For Pirham 89 Alumni 75 Sea t -iiug 1 1G3 N-eetMary Is a choice 83 A wa* nre-eiiiml hv Mr. Mcllh tn-y from the Pr -sklent ant Directors of the Lcetburg Tumpiku Road, a-king lor MU'horl'y to extend their road and to receive addit orial subscription* lor that purpo e: which was referred. Ail engrossed bill to provide for the construction of a Turnpike road from Winchester lo Parkersburg, was read a third time. Mr. Brown thought if gentlemen should examine this Bill as he had done, they would come to tho same con clusion with himself, that it ought to pass. lie said he saw no reason why tho subject* of Internal Improve ment-hould not go on, although tlio Convention were engaged in the revision ol the fuiuhiment.il law. it «x diibited to the world, the remarkable instance of a go vernment smoothly going on while a revolution in their form of government was in operation, and he hoped gentlemen would consent to signalize the expiration of tile old government by adopting an improvement so be neficial. lie explained the route of the road; it passed through a country containing 11,000 square miles, a population of G4,000 inhabitants, the assessed value of whose lands was £100,000,000 and who paid a levenueof $2.>,000; it was land most ol which was lit for cultiva tion, and all of it lor pasturage, and admitted of as dense a population as any part of the State, and yet for want of communications to market, this tine country, was al most without cultivation, and supported hut a sparse po pulation. The road would traverse the North Eastern peart-of the Slate, tho whole length from North to West. II they could get to Winchester, there were ample fa cilities to conduct them to the District of Columbia, or to Baltimore. To the West it would be connected with the main Western roads, and would attract all persons coining Irom tho Western States to the District of Co lumbia. He explained how the road was connected with the principal roads in Ohio and the neighboring States, and it.s tendency to shorten the distance; and ar gued that the same reasons which would induce travel lers to take this road, would attract all the trade of the West to the same route. The improvement would in crease the wealth of this portion of the country, and would add to the revenue of the State, by increasing the ability of the people to pay and by increasing the sub jects of taxation; and as you add "to the revenue from one source, you would ho enabled to take Irom it in other sections. lie referred to the recommendation of tiie Principal Engineer to show tho expence, the gross amount of which would be about § JG.OtKI. which would he readily re-paid by the tolls lo he derived from the road itself. Governor Tyler and Governor Giles both had recom mended this improvement to the tovnrable conuderatio'i of the Legidature;— the Board of Public Works had af firmed n to he absolutely necessary to promo e tha in terest ot lhit section of the State. 11- vxnlainel the provision* of the B II, and said that the detail* were uii -XCf ptionsble He knew mmv gentleman were op po*i d to loam; for himself i a thought it the pre ferable inode,—far superior (<* the subscription on the part of the state to joint stork companies. There sub scription* heretofore had not only been unproductive, but had tended almost to j-opa'dize the fund far in’er n<*l improvement its It;—the ilismir >u» consequence* of this course had been fnrly developed, as r/a* proved bv til- report ol the Auditor exhibiting the pre-ent -late of this fund. II- thought that lh* power given In ihe<e joint stork companies to tax lh- re*t of the community forever, was most onerous and burdensome, f-.r by their eliartrr* which you con'd not viol >te, they had a right to this- toll* after they had been fully paid for the ex pense and risk incurred and the labour exp-tided,—but when you borrowed inon-y an I made the ro*d upon vonr own responsibility—alter you were paid for your out ay, and what you thought reasonable, you might t-*ke off theae onernu. burd-n. Irorn (he roHunmii y. lie thought the State ought to bo the eoln po»««.*<ira of all auch wmk*: with the entire control, they may fix the toll* to benefit tlio commonwealth withont injury to the community. The*o improvements could not he carried on by an inrrea.e of the taxe* directly lor *uch purpose*: it woobl lie rai.ing inonry Irom all part* of the State to benefit a particular section; tiie people would not bear and could not bear an'ic.ipation* of Ilia revenue, caUing for exco»«ivc »um» to make immediate work., but by making loan* they woull not fo»l the exp-nav, beran.t the toll* and profit, will pay the intereat of th# money, and filially redeem the principal. If the toll* and profit* •tinuld accidentally bo insufficient, you have a direct re.ourc* to the Innd for Internal Improvement, and thi* alway* rendered it *afe fir the St.to to make the*# loan*; and enabled her to make them without the lea.t difficulty. II (ha *y*tam of loan* be pur.tied, the (.' iimnonwealth could make all lior work*, and from (he profit ol the wmk* thom*efvea repay the anm* borrow ed, and have a *iirphi. to iarrca.c her fund: he thought thi. the mo*t tlcclrable of all *y*teni*. lie r* (erred to the New York canal. The annual amount of toll* from thi* work alone would in time *upp'irt Die government tor all tlm# to come, after having diffidently remunera ted them fir the cxpen<e incurred in the un<lo>taking. Hut, he a lid, the inhabitant, of the country through wiiirli thi*road wa« Intended to pa*«,were unable to rai-e the mran.by uniting In a joint #toek company; it could only be dme in a commercial community; not among plain farmer*, whit bad not aurplre income for aurli purpose*.— Ho b*licveil jo nt *tock companies were at an end throughout the «t.fe: they rarely proved profi table, and individual, would not unite in Diem; and they had been put down by the repeal of the law which aecurrd >e them the «tx per cent, intere.t on their ca pital advanced If the ro«d he made at all. it mint he done at the ex penceof the Stale;—the toll* he thought would piy a hand mine profit, and fully reimhtir.e the State;—the Engineer pTot.ounce* nnetjnivoeally that thi. will be the 10‘iilt;—Die two fJovernor* and the Bo.rd of Pub lic Work, had united in Die *a ne opinion.—Hut admit that the profit, will not pay the intere.t,—the fund*of the commonwealth weie in a fiotiriahing * afo at preaent. II. referred to th- pr#-ctit «t»!e of Die TreS.ury, am! to the fund for Internal. Improvement, and .hewed there were large balance, in each, unappropriated.— He aaid before any m«mey would tie wanted, there would be a .urplii* of upward* of $51,000 in the fund, and an annual acerning *xce«* of $45,000,— but ad mit the interest will no be paid, yet the wealth of the country would be increased, -and the amount of re veuue woul-l increa*» in proportion to their wealth.— Me believed it would double the revenue, and that in stead ol $25,000, they would pay 60,000. lie thought, and his constituents thought, they had a claim to this Improvement as a matter of righ';—-large amount* had beeu expended lor woiks all over the Slats, while but a very small portion had be. n expended there; $t,000,0()U had bern expended in other parts 01 the S ate, while not more than $10,000 had been ex pended in thv section ot country now asking this im provement.— Hie claim was so plain and obvious, that all parts of the State ought to units in granting it. Let gentlemen tell their constituents of the deplorable state ol these people, locked up in mountains without a toad to get to market, with a country admitting of the j greatest Improvement; let them state the large sums t e<|H-nded elsewhere anil the little exp-nded lli-re, and 1 il there be a spatk of patriotism remaining, no obstacle would be tlnown in Hie way; the people would certain ly approve their votes. Mr. M nir said this was not the time ntr hour toen >er upon such works;—this period would he distinguish ed enough; while tl»e Convention w*re tearing up a'.l Hie organic laws, he had it) idea ol t-aring up the lund tin Internal Improvement; lie had been on the commit* t-e for examining into thia lund, and he differed with the gentleman in hi* opinion relative to this luiid; he holii-vod it the tn»*t beggarly account of empty lurte* that could bn found. Me said that one b il, of the land Wasbu.i.'d in the .1 .tines Itivsr, never to be regained; more tliso a imllio-i ha l beeo UnroweJ, lor which we paid intne*t at the ra'e ol six per cent, while we ware only receiving two and a half per cent by the toil*— $750,000 ot this lund was uiteily lost, and Hie balance producing a lund ot 10 or 50,000dollars, was sll we had in carry on these improvement*. The State had made pledges already upon this fund, which ought to pre vent the passage of this bill, lie said tin* bill pledged the lund tor Internal Improvement after the prulis were lotind insufficient. This fund was deposited in out banks, and ifeilhorol them tailed, which be hoped would never takr place, yet If they «honM, we should I have to dip our hands in the pockets of ilas people to I make good the deficiency, lie thought these joint stock companies were highly advantageous, lor if indi vi lu ils were interested in th-se work*, they would t ike care to see that the work was properly managed; he w.»s »erry the law had been repealed, which induc ed individuals to unite in those companies, for while they did snathe individuals were benefilted and the imp'ove* men-* made, fie said the State ot New York hadb-mn relerred to, but they had managed (heir matters better than we had done: we were nearly ruined while T v as true they had been benefilted. Me referred to the cost of th* work* on the Kanawha Road and Navigation ami the James River, and showed | the profit* resulting from each, and said that Hie whole | aggregate profit was not more than two an I a half per cent—and he did not believe these profits eo ild in* ci ease. IIj undcrstrol th** distance between Winchester and Parkersburg tvas 210 miles, the stun ot $66,000 wo a*ked to he appropritted, that is $333 per mile, which he did not believe would grub (he trees out ol the road. He had travelled through this country and It id seen the timber, and he thought to graduate this road and clear away thr timber, would cost infinitely ino-e. lie said the United Slates road through the same kind ol coun try, had ro<t Iroin 1100 to $2000 a mile, and Irom that we might make some estimate of what this road would cost. He said the estimates hitherto made had been entirely fallacious. II we expended money, we ought lo he remunerated tor it; aud he supposed gentlemen were not for splendid si hemes without remuneratUm ; —he said the flourish ing state ot the treasury had b «n referred to, but the extraordinary expenses hk«-ly to ensue troin the Lrgis. lature u aw sitting, the Couvsu aou, the Legislature lobe i called in April to put the new government in op iratimi and 1 I the regular LvgisUtuio to follow, would commute the I whole ol it, and he believed Ihe ‘axes would have to he | incie isod. Hr said if they borrowed money they would lie compelled at some future day lo lay taxes to redeem ! the ilrht, and he was opposed to Ihe whole system of ; bin rowing. He was opposed too. to carrying the trade to the District of Columbia and Baltimore, as the gen , Hem mi desired. This was not (he time to run into ex* traonlinary expenses. He referred to former estimates to prove how Mlariou* these calculations had been. He •aid if the $66,000 waa not sufficient, ho hrlievttd $(>00,000 would af.orwards lie appropriated, and he was | opposed to mteiing the wedge at this time. We should assuredly be asked for more money, and more would he J grented. because altsr the work was commenced, it I 1 would he necessaiy to carry it on to save whit had | h een expended. Mr. Williams of Harrison, sxjd he would not Occupy • the ground travelled over by his cnlle.igup; it had keen ■ so satisfactory that it would lie useless He said the country through which this road would pass, contained I one sixth of the territory, and furnished one sixth ol the revenue of the S ate ; aud (he question presented itself i whether you wers prepared to undertake a wc k that mud in the end inctease the revenue, by a calculation ) hn had made and submitted last session, full y $ 11,000. He siid, whenever a scheme of improvement was projected, they were'met, with the ideas of “splendid | schemes," “improper lime" “and waul of money;”—if these arguments were fired much oftener, the gentle men win fired them would soon require bushing.— With the gsntlemau from Spottsylvams, it was always Ihe wrong lime;—he believed we were beginning to In-e our (undue** (or cxhxtistie terms;—but he admitted this wa« “a splendid scheme” anti on* which wott'il bone tit the State;—the wrong time!—he believed there ne ver was a time mure peitinent, (or it afTirled the East Ills opportunity of shewing (hair magnanimity and ge n uosily to the Wed;—(he gentleman from Spottsylva nit had bsen s standing ob-iacle, ti tnnnnita nmri a gamst every schema ol Improvement at all times. He had atludsil to Ihe K a now ha Turnpike and Jauir* Hi v«r, hut by his allusions he had proved lo him that that gen | Hainan hail been more engaged in hunting up niuity r-eortls again*' all improvement*, than in gaining in f or - iiiation on Engineering.—The gentleman by a cursory ride ot. horseback had undertaken to contradict the es timate of the Engineer, who had inado the survey and > estimate, and reported to this Hou-e. He believed Hie I House won*1 rather credit Ihe estimate of the Engineer I than the survey of the genfUinan. j He said, the art of road-ru-iking had arrived at that ! stale ol improvement which enabled its lo rely with a ! greater accuracy ou estimate* made Ilian lorinerly— 1 the road desired wa« nothing more than a Yankee turn* j pike, which w*a the most economical load lhat could I be made. There were many parts of the road, which would n*iih-r require a spade or matlox; the nature of the country wae such that many parts of it by nature wca made equal to any turnpike that could be made. The road would pa<s through a more fruitful, salubri ous and delightful country, than con'd be found and it would be the greatest thoroughfare in lime, frem the West to the Kiel; it would direct all the trade from the whole fruitful regions of the West, and give an im pulse to the agriculture of the country, the advantage* ol which, could not ho calculated. These were tael* that every Tyre could understand, The road would furnish an ample remuneration; ho only asked credit ol the State to increase the value of the land*, the wealth jof the country, and the revenue of the State, end am ply remunerate her. Mr. Kerr',t*val said, thi* waa a work, In which all the North-Western, and a large portion of the country, at the ('.astern Hsse of the Alleghany Mountain, Was deeply Interested.— It would connect the me*l populous pari of Ohio with the Valley; and it afforded such a fa cility to the whole country, that it must Increase their wealth and increase the population greatly.— It wa* demanded by public policy—for, it was incumbent tip ! on every government, to extend public benefits to the whole Community—Thi* section of the country had not been benrfitt-d by the expenditure of a dollar, from the hind lor Internal Improvement. They had con tributed their part to the creation of thi* lund, and he n»ked if they were never to receive any benef^.'— These considerations might to have weight. If you deny relief to those asking it. will they not consider themselves neglected, and will fbey not seek protection from aome other source.’ Virginia had al ways denied the right ot the Federal Government, to make improvement* in her Territory; hut If she drnlad her citizen* the advantage* of the improvement* a-ked at her hand*, they would he driven lo look to the Fede ral Government —He meant not lo repeat the argu ment* adduced by the gentleman Irom Harrl-mi. He had treated the. subject so ably, that nothing waa left to he said. Mr M inoe **id. If member* looked upon the Map,! j they would find that thi* toad would pars through the j St'Ste ol Maryland, and would involve it# in difficulties | wi h the authorities of that State, »od we ahould have pleuipo'vniuries travelling backward and forward, to settle and adjust these di*pute*. Mr. Ihown add, the gentleman from SjiottsvIvaiiU had euch a disposition to start difficulties, that he ha<t been led into errors relative to the fund lor Internal Im provement. He driiird that the fund was bankrupt blit suppose it wa* in this condition : It only proved it was high tone to adopt some other system, than these joint S’tuck Companies, which had rau*ed the hiink ruptcy.—The 2d .Auditor, by hl« statement, showed, that tlic interval arising to the fund, was 3 per rent., in stead of 2 1-2 per rent., as the gentleman had stated.— And lie a*k*d. wheie (lie joint Stork Comp my was, in the S ate,that produced this amount to the State?—The gross receipts ol the fund, was equal to a profit of six per cent.; and was this a bankrupt fund? He did not agree with tlio gentleman in hi* evil forebodings. Tilt amount of toll* on the \Ve*|em section ol the James Kiver improvement, was cheering—it was iiicreasiiig daily. Hassid, the gentleman had observed, that the esti mates on the Kanawha Hoad, nude by Hie Engineer, had be<*n inmlf\eieiit, ant) afterward* more money had been called for; liut it was known, that the estimate* made hy the Engineer, had hern without a survey, and weie not expected *o l»e accurate; but this road had been surveyed —He said, a* M (he funds being depos ited in the Hank*, and the probability of the Dank* bursting, wa* another difficulty to be surmounted.— Why, it the Dank* brake, wo should lose our whole re venue; and, iheretor*, we mu*t raise no revenue at sit-—Hut, the gentleman call* upon the llousu to stay their hands, for fear ot encroaching upon tlm jurisdic tion ol another 9 ate; tirsl supposing, that the rnsd would pa<* through the Territory, in order to raise tlio difficulty. Tm; road was not yet located; and, for hit part, he did not believe it would pa** through the StaUs ol Mnrvland >tt all; but if it did, she would not object. The D II was rejected—aye* 122, noes 58. Mr. Drown said, some gentlemen were willing to vote f ir takiug a certain stun from the surplu* of the fund lor Internal Improvement, rather than making the loan a* proposed in the Dill ju*t (ejected. He only wanted about $10,000 a year, lor nearly 7 years; and i( they would grant this. It was all tbit was desired. He, therefore, pioposed off-ring a resolution to that effect. And thru, on Mr. Terrill’s motion, the House ad journed until to-morrow morning, II o'clock. Hrcd7i<*5'/iiy, Jan. 13. — Yes-onlay, on motion of Mr. Hive* ol Campbell, leave w.t* given to bring in a bill to incorporn.e the Trustees of the Literary Institution to be called Henry and Mason Coll *ge, and locate I at this village ••( lloydton in the county of Mecklenburg, On Mr. Up*haw'< motion, a committee wa* appoint ed to examine the condition ol' the furniture in the (gov ernor'* Houa i, ami to report what sutn would be inquir ed for th * repairs of tlio old, or fir the purchase ol new articles. Various Reports were presented by tno committee*. Mr. Garland of Amherst, presented a petition of the citizens of Amherst and Lynchburg, complaining of cm tain abuses practised in manufacturing mills, and asking that some provision may be made to prevent those abuses—which was releried to the committee of Piooo-iuons and Grievances. Kngrossed bills—“Authorizing the executor of Jas. Bray deceased, to sell lands tie vised to the negroes eman cipated by said Hray:*' “Altering the place and time of holding the separate election in the county of Ca bell:'1 “Kstabhshing an inspec Ion ol flour and Indian meal at the town of Farmville in the county of Prince Kd ward:” “To aulh»ri<e the erection ol a dam across the *outh branch of Potowinac rivei:” “Incorporating a company lo constructs Turnpike (toad from the Penn sylvania line near Smithtield on the National Road, to the mouth ot Fishing Creek on the Ohio River:” “To repeal tha act, entitled »it act, vesting in the Trustees ot ths School of S;. Paul’s Parish, in the county of King George, for tlio use of the said schoo':” “To » rnvnd the several acts concerning the Randolph Acade my:” “Requiring returns ol sales of the effects ot in solvent debtors:” “To authorize two sepat ate elections in the county ol Nicholas:” “To authorize tour aepnrae elec’i >ns in the county of Buckingham, end one in the county of Patrick”—“To amend the act proscribing cer tain general regulations for the incorporation of Turn pike Companies,”—[with a Ryder proposed by Mr. Bryce]—were respectively read a third time and pas sed. The engrossed hill authorising the Board of Public Works to euh«crihe in behalf of the State to the middle Turnpike Company, was taken up. Mr. Mcllhaury advocated the passage of the hill— he said it was an important bill to bis constituents, and to the adjacent counties—it would enable them to se cure a communication with A lex Midi i 1, which was their market town; they transported very heavy arti cles, such as (dour anil pork, and required a good road to facilitate them in getting to market. He believed the profits from the raad would amply ro-piy the State for the sum subscribed. He hoped the bill would pats. Mr. While'of R thought the part of the county now asking this subscription, had been amply provided fur heretofore: it was like piling Pelion upon Osia to give them more. IIs doubted whether the stock would ever yield anv profi , but if it was as profitable as the gentleman supposed, the stork would be taken by indi viduals with great ease, lie was opposed lo the bill. Mr. (Mutt said, the town of Alexandria was the fa vorite market of all his eeet'ton of the country; they procured twenty-five cents more in the barrel lor their 1 tdour there than any where else—and by subscribing to 1 this stock it would enable the Company to finish their ro.ul and open a go id communication 10 this market.— He siiil (he travellers from the north-west in conse quence ol the extreme bjd road*, had been driven inta Maryland, and carried their produce to Baltimore; -and if this road was finished, it would a'trsct all lliesn tra vellers lo it, and he believed the stork would be ren dered very productive. All the counties of Fairfax, Loudoun, Hampshire, Hardy, B.-ikeley, Morgan, were deeply interested in this improvement, and lie much feared that unless the stock was taken by the State, the road would fail. He should vote for it, and by so doing,he believed he should comply with the spirit of the funil for Internal Improvement. Mr. Eppessahl, this was not a public improvement, hut emphatically a neighborhood and plantation road, which the citizens of that part of the country should make themselves. Me said it this subrripiion had been recommended by the Hoard of Public Works, they had recommended it against the public interest. He thought it Hot a proper application of the public funds. Ho • aid the Commonwealth had already subicribed to a number of turnpike*, all in this part of the State, and he believed if a dividend was ever derived from tho Middle Turnpike, it would be by suhstracling tho dividend* from some neighboring road in which the Common wsalth was more interested. He did not believe it expedient to make the subscrip tion. There was only seventeen miles of this road now to be completed, and he thought the country thro’ which it passed,ought to make it themselves. If they were ae much interested as they were supposed to he, they would do it; and he eoulil not consent to apply the public funds to such an object. Mr M’llhaney said, he believed (lie Hoard of I’ub lie Works had recommended this subscription, after de liberation, and because It wss for (he interest of thn State. The people had already subscribed $30,000 to this road, and he did not think they were at all niggard ly; they only a*ked now for a small assistance frcAn tho Stale, to enable them to complete their road. The people had no means of getting to market now, but through the worst road in the Commonwealth—the na ture of the soil was such, that without paving (he road, it could not be ma le tit f.r travelling. The bill was rejected. A bill, releasing to the heirs of Joseph Willard, tho Commonwealth’s right to certain lands, was also re jected. It wss opposed by Mr. Pirnll#, and advocated by Mr. Spencer, both hnm the county of Wood. An engrossed Mil, further 'o amend the several acts, concerning the keeper* and exhibitors of ce/tain un law tail games. Mr. Williams of Mentieo, and Mr. Wood, supported the passage of the Hill. And Mr. Garland of Nelson oppoied it.—It was re jected. On motion of Mr. Rive* of C., the Jidnt Committee of the Armory, were authorized to receive proposals for tossing the Armory lor manufacturing purposes. A resolution of the Committee of Claims, rejecting the petition of Edward F. Vawter and others, praying payment for a negro man, executed in 1782, was agreed to by thn House. And t ien, on Mr. Caatlemsn’s motior, the House ad journed till to merrow morning II o’ clock.
