pending between George T. F. Lonnier & Co., plaintitr,

creek,and within a mile of York River, and of course it
is very convenient to the oyster trade, which is carried
on to a great extent, on that River—It contains about
six hundred acres of Land, perfectly level, and is believ
ed to be well timbered; on the banks of the crock there
are inexhaustible bods of mar! and shells. The im

every other house necessary for the farm, all of which
are believed to be in good repair. This land will be sold

VALUABLE ESTATE FOR SALE.—The sub
scrilier, in view of a settlement in Mississippi, is
desirous of disposing of his property in Virginia, and of
fers for sale u most desirable Estate of about eleven
hundred acres of land, situated in Stafford county, about
s vyn miles below the town of Fredericksburg, and bor
dering on the Rappahannock River. This estate includes
the tracts commonly known as the S.nowius and Ff.riit
Farms,and unites advantages rarclymet with, and such as
entitle it to be regarded as one of the most desirable farms
in this section of the State. The uplands are pro
ductive, and remarkably well supplied with both wood
and water—clover and plaster succeed well upon
them; and a fair proportion of them has been cleared,
and. is now in fine order for firming operations,
having been, for some time, cultivated under an
improving system. The low-lands compose a con
siderable portinn of the estate, and are of the most
valuable description, consisting in part of an exten
sive alluvial meadow, situated upon the river border,
perfectly reclaimed, long distinguished for abundant hay
crops, and of unsurpassed fertility. The improvements
consist of a large two-story dwelling-house, with vari
ous buildings, convenient and appropriate for plantation
purposes. But it is considered unnecessary hero to at
tempt a further description of the property, as it is pre
sumed that ail persons disposed to purchase, will make
a personal examination, and such an examination, it is
believed, will abundantly shew, that in every point of
view —for health, for fertility of soil, for local advantages,
ns well in regard to society, as convenience to market,
the estate now offered for sale, is surpassed by none in
this part of Virginia.—For terms of sale and other par
ticulars, reference may be had to John A. Morson, Esq.,

i lie Bill to authorize the Common Council of the City
ot Richmond to make a further subscription to the
Stock ot the James River and Kanawha Company,
returned from the Senate with amendments, was ta
ken up, and the question being on Mr. Witcher's mo
tion to amend that part ol tin- last amendment of tin*
Senate which Axes the vote of the State on its addi
tioual subscription at one vote for every ten shares—by
striking out “ten,” and inserting ‘^/fre”—
•Mr. Johnson of R. mid, he ha«i reason to apprehend
that the statement which he had yesterday made—in re
lation to the relative votes of the parlies to this compa
ny should this amendment Ik* adopted,—had not Iteen
fully understood. He therefore renewed the statement
then made, and deduced from the computation of all the
votes, that the vote of the State in a full meeting of the
several parties to the company would be equivalent to
sonic what more than three-tenths, or very nearlv one
third. This he thought would give to the State a sufficient
influence for all useful purposes. It could scarcely be
supposed that a case would occur, in which the State
\v ould be arrayed on one side and the three corporations on
thenther—and in that cose it might bo in the power of
file Stale, at least to divide the votes of tin* private
stockholders, so as to overrule n combination of the three
corporations. In the Rank of Virginia, the Treasurer

in which the vote of the Treasurer was overruled._
He had been informed that this idea of the dispropor

this company converted into an instrument for the
achievement of political objects, instead of being devoted
to general, local and State purposes. He trusted he had
shewn that they should he going too far in increasing the
influence ot the State in this company. Shoulii the
amendment of the gentleman from Pittsylvania be adopt
ed it would give to the State, if the Hank's vote be ad
urd, thirty-eight hundred votea—a power which it would
be impossible to resist. Mr. J. objected yesterday to the

fered witK the stipulations of Die charter. That objec

had lx‘rn done by this arrangement. He had shewn that

comes nearer that ratio, which, in justice to the private
stockholders, ought as nearly ns possible to he preserved. I
The corporation of Richmond were to have a vote of one
to ten on their subscription. This was beyond cnntroui !
now, as that provision hail not been embraced in the
Senate's amendments. Would it Injustice, then, to in
crease the vote of the State, when it was no longer in
our power to give a proportionate privilege to the corpo
ration? Under all views of the subject, lie thought the |
amendment of the Senate ought to he adopted, and he
hoped the motion of the gentleman from Pittsylvania
would not prevail. J
Mr. Witciiek said, if he was not so well convinced
of the propriety of tin* motion he had made, lie might
perhaps obey the dictates of prudence, and avoid saying
more on this subject. He was well aware of the strength
of the friends of the company in this House—ho was
well aware of the influence of the city member here_
and lie had seen sufficient yesterday almost to warrant
him in saying, that a single shrug of that gentleman's
shoulders was sufficient to turn the decision or the House.
They had been told by that gentleman, that the influ
ence of the State was even now too great in the Compa
ny—and lie assumes that the decision of lai.t year ties
uuwu me oiow5 10 u continuation ot the vote of one
fourth of the stock. Hut os Mr. Witcher was not
convinced of the propriety of that restriction, he
was, therefore, not convinced th.it it ought to be car
ried out in relation to the additional stock to be
subscribed. Hut the gentleman from Richmond has
qitulifr nil his computations by supposing the meetings
t' be always lull. Did lie not consider that the probabi
lity was that they would often be deficient in the full
number ol stockholders? rl lie corporation subscriptions
constituted units—the Rank as a subscriber to this stock
was a unit, and they may combine. What could the
Htate do against such a combination? She bears the ma
jority oi tli»‘ burthen, but she is to Ik? disabled from ex
ercising a control over the management of the company.
Hut we are tola, that the Treasurer has the control ofthc
Hank of Va., and that the Hank will therefore hike sides
with the State. But this was doubtful. The control of
the Treasurer, with one-third of the votes of the Hank
stockholders, depended upon their non-attendance, or
their voting with him. Hut the Slate could have
no prospect of exerting such an influence in this
company. i^.ok at the House of Delegates, for
instance—what control would one-third of the votes
give over the decisions of the House? None at all._
It could not be expected that all the stockholders would
he present, and the absentees would be from the cotin
try, mid not from the ( ity. The subscribers in the city
are almost equal to one-half of the private subscription._
I he private stock in the city was owned almost by the
same individuals who owned the Hanks, and who crea
ted the corporation of Richmond. These parties, assimi
lating so closely, would without donht combine together,
and they could overrule the State.
f.Mr. W. here read a series of statements to shew the
little weight tile State would have in these various cases. 1
It would he perceived that the StMe would lose l>v
every absent stockholder. And, it wns clearly made
out that the control of the company would he given to
the City of Richmond. The ap)H>intmcnl of officers
will devolve noon them. Who are to he your engi
neers, your toll-gatherors, and jrotir officers?—The City
of Richmond will have the apimintmcnt of them.—The
people are tohe hurthened with tlieexpense of a work,
and the property of the country is to he pledged for its
completion, over which the State has no control. Va
rious reasons occurred to him which rendered the State's
control desirable. I be friends of the company antici
pated immense profits from the work. Should these ex
pectations be realized, it would be proper that the amount
of profits should l>e restrained; and it might be expe
dient for the Stale to interpose. The corporations also,
might speculate upon the stock and sell it out to large
capitalists, so that the rontrol of the Company might fall
into improper hands, if the State's influence could not
be maife to preponderate.
He did not object to the improvement of the James Ri
ver—that he knew must take place. 11< believed that if 16
dollars per ton were charged on produce from l.yneli
hurg down, the river would not lie abandoned—because
it in the cheapest and the most natural transportation.-—
Ho wished it In he understood that he objected lo giving
this corporation, whose burthens were light, a prepon
■» . A A * ftf*''
derating influence over the whole work. Mr. W. should
have lx*«‘ii content to he silent, mid simply to submit his
motion to tlie House, had not the course of debate
tempted him to speak. Bat, under all tin: ciremiislances
ol this proceeding, considering the little disposition on
the part of the friends of tlie bill to listen to any other
than their own advice, he was constrained to avow his
sentiments. V\ hnt did he link ? Was it any thing
unreasonable ? No. It was merely that they should
improve upon the provision of last year, and restore
to the State something like her projxr weight in
the company. 'The course which this subject had
taken—the strange succession of questions brought
before the House in relation to it—and the system of I
indirection by which it had been pressed forward
through all its changes, were sufficient reasons for look*
ing with a little care to the interest of the State. The
hill stood before tins House in an uncommon position.
By indirect means, and through the agency of the other
House, a bill was now here, with every prospect of re
ceiving the concurrence of the House, which, if it had
been originally introduced here, could not have been
passed. I his proposition for n» additional subscription
to the stock, was anticipated by no one, when such
strenuous exertions were made to obtain authority for
the <- ity s subscription. Ami now that this proposition
is made, what do vre ask ? That a larger vote shall be
given to the State—that she r.hali have one vote for
each five shares, instead of one tor each ten. of the
additional subscription. In this proposition it was
not asked to put her on the same tooting with the i
Corporations or the individual subscribers. But with
that vote, by obtaining the appointment of proper di
rectors, she could maintain lier clue influence in the
company—and he would rather that the State should I
have the election ot one director tluin any other power. |
After the work should have been completed to thiscitv,
there were many obstacles to its communication with the
tide water. There were the rights ofthe do«-i
— the rights of the proprietors of ,l
cart-men and drav-m**
ing prod.- - ..u.uthey ci
, .0 which Richmond was
induencc of the corporation, the
-*« stockholders in tlie City ? Against these
-uticulties they might liojs- to prevail, with a preponde
rating vote on the part ot the State; but. as at present
arranged, it would be hopek-ss indeed. I/e looked upon
this proposition ns essential to the due influence of the I
State in the management of tin* company, and lie hoped I
it would prevail. It it failed, he slvnild be consoled l>v
the reflection that he had done his duty.
Mr. Johnson of R. said, it was very true that, in the
few remarks which he had addressed to the House, lie
did not state explicitly what would be the result, if the
private stockholders were not all represented at the
meetings of the company. But lie had stated what
would be the consequence of the- vote proposed to be (ri
ven by the State, when the whole of the stockholders
! were present. Had Mr. J. been entitled to wield the
j usher s rod in this House; had lx- gathered his pupils
■ around him to give them lessons in the arts and mysteries of
! arithmetic, he might have been conscious of tlie neccssi- i
j ty of stating categorically, the cfli cts of the absence of 1
nny given number of the individual stockholders, ns 1
! “,at> for every four who might not lie represented the |
I State would lose one vote. But he had supposed the ’
members of the House capable, without instruction, to I
achieve these very simple computations. He had there
j fore confined himself to the results, supposin'” the whole
number present. Mr. J. had no reply to make to the
calculations of the gentleman from Pittsylvania, for
he had not given lus attention to them. He had
not computed the probable changes of proprietor
ship ni the stork—he had not deemed it iion-rtuit
to calculate how many small shareholders would pro
bably dispose of their stock to large capitalists— or
whether Lynchburg, or the State, or the Corporation
of Richmond, might not sell their stock to individual ca
pitalists. These were questions for tlx- future, and de
pended upon too many contingencies to tempt Mr> J in
to speculation upon tlwm »i.„e. Remiccd «hoj^|

that the State should never sell' her stock in this work

exercise its influence to curtail them. And is this the ;

nucr-oed, enjoy a profit, wliichra!i noon a» 1

I attributed to him such uncommon generosity. lfsuUs !
is his generosity, 1 should beg th.it it might not be exer- ]
cised upon me. I should shrink from the liberality of
such patronage as his. Suppose thut we laid com
menced with this declaration—suppose ilwit ill can
clour we bad said, that the slrckhoidorH should not enjoy
the profits of the work, after the tc:l and risk of its
completion. Would a dollar of the stock have been taken ?
No, sir. But that would have been no subject of la
mentation to the gentleman from Pittsylvania. 11c did i
not desire a dollar to l>c applied to this improvement, if
1 understand him correctly, from the control which he |
now desires to give- the State over the Company.
The gentleman from Pittsylvania, said Mr. Johnson,
has been pleased to indulge in certain intimations of in
direction in bringing this bill before the House in its pre- |
sent form, ns amended by the Seriate. He insinuates
that the conduct of its advocates lias been disingenuous
and unworthy. Does the gentleman in making tKesc in
timations judge of others by a knowledge of himself?
Do the promptings nf his own heart teach him thn«i to
cast suspicion on the motive* and actions of iiis fcl- !
low men? If they do, he is nn unfit counsellor.
Mr. Witcher hod not sought to irritate the feelings
of the gentleman from Richmond. He had no such de
sign—and he asked every member of the House, to say,
whether that gentleman had made a fair use of his (Mr.
W. k remarks? Rut enough of this for the present, 'flic
gentleman nays, that my calculations are not worthy of
notice. Rut he has entertained the House with ten times
the calculations that I presented : and his figures, we arc
to presume, are all legitimate and correct, because they
are vouched for by the inciiilier from the City of Rich
mond. Mr. W. asked the gentleman*-no, he asked the
House, if the Corporation could not reduce the profits of
this company down to one per cent, if it so chose?—and
he would ask, whether this great Commonwealth might
not safely possess the power to do the same thing? He
asked the gentleman, whether the State could not do
what the Rank and his fivoritc Corporation could
do? Mr.W. had, perhaps, shewn some warmth in his
previous remarks; but his language certainly did not
warmnt the heat and violence of the gentleman's reply.
And 1 say, said Mr. W., that I stand here as erect as I
Hid before. I any, that he has perverted my language,
when he attributed to me a desire to withhold from lin
stock holders the profits promised them l>y their charter,
and that he knew there was nothing unjust or illitiernl :
in the views 1 advanced. Was there, then, any necessity,
any propriety in the sarcasm and irony of the gen
tleman—any cause for the feelings which he has ex
hibited, as much in his looks as in his words? I
say again, said Mr. Witcher, that there is a neces
sity that there should be a control on the part of the
Isiale, to prevent the profits from exceeding lb per cent.
Then, the use which the gentleman has made of my re
mark, as to the stock finding its way into the hands of
capitalists, was unfair. Mr. W. asked, if he had not
proof of the consequences of such a transfer in the Rich
mond l)oe.k Company, the stock of which had hern bought
up by capitalists, ami was now- worth about lit dollars per
share. No, sir—the lower the stock is, the more sure it is
to get into the hands of capitalists. As to the sale of the
stock of the James River Company-—year after 3'car we
j had been told that it would bo sold—that it would be
! "ought for in the market by capitalists. On the contra
| ry, it had been disposed of with the utmost difficulty—
j and the greater part of it by a forced sale—yes, sir, a
j forced sale to the City of Richmond— for, it. was such in
j the most odious sense, so far as th<- minority of the citi
j xens were concerned Mr W. had said that this work
j would cost twelve millions before it could be completed,
i lie believed so still, and tint the State Would be saddler)
with the expense. He had said that this hill came to
| the House in its present form by indirection. He said
| so again, and he thought the fact could not be denied.—
I To this, the gentleman frbm Richmond has replied that,
I if I judge others by myself, i am not worthy of a seat
i here. Rut I say, that I have a perfect right to judge
! others by their eondnet, and that is all that I have done.
1 As to the remarks ho had made with regard to the gen*
1 tie man from Richmond, he went no farther than facts
i would justify; and for the repl3’ of the gentleman, lie
i asked no apology.
I - ^r‘ ^ 'kmi a i.l hoped be might be permitted to say **
j lew words, in explanation ol* the vote he should now
I Pvr ”e had no doubt been understood by tluxse wh®
heard him yesterday, to intimate, that as he had, to tho
utiin*nt ol li*» poor ability, opposed tlio passage of tins
bill in its original shape, he should vote against this
amendment which proposed only •*» partial change. Yet,
as the bill has been much modified since tint opposition
was made, and as he should certainly have voted for a
bill presenting only tlu* substance ot this amendment,
unconnected with the other provisions, he did not, upon
mature reflection, jiereeive any inconsistency in voting
for the amendment itaclt, notwithstanding that connexion.
He had never, in a long series of years, given a vote
against any practicable and valuable scheme for tbr de
velnpeiuent of the physical reaourers of this Common
wealth; and he should regret to have his name recorded
in opposition to one of such great importance to the (Statu
at large, and one in which not only the present gene
ration, but generations yet to come, were vitally inter- ■
ested.. Standing here as a representative oftlie county of
F auquicr, he was bound to respect what he believed to be
the wish of his constituents. If that wish may be in
ferred from their unifiinn acquiescence m the cjurse
which he had heretofore pursued in reference to the sub
ject ot Internal Improvement, it would sanction the
passage of this bill—ami his vote would be given with
greater pleasure, as lie followed, at lire same time,
the dictate of his own beat judg\uent. He trusted, if this
scheme should be adopted, that it would redound to
prosperity and glory of the CoInmoIlwen,,,

reasoning. He thought this Jm
-.•*■ ®l vast importance in preventing the occur
rence of an evil so much to be deplored, as it will bind
together two great sections of this Union by the indis
soluble bond of interest.
Mr. Pakkkk hoped the gentleman from Fauquier did
not interpret bin (Mi. P.'s) remarks, of yesterday, into
the avowal of a desire for a disunion of the States. Such,
certainly, was not his meaning. Mr. P. knew thatthoso
AA’ilh whom be thought and acted, had been most unjustly
accused of being disunionists; but, liowever they might
look upon a separation, us an event which might lwreaf
ter occur, although tliey looked upon some recent event*
as hiving a tendciicy towards a disruption so much to be
dreaded,, tliey were desirous of doing all in their poAver to
avert it. if jxissible. Mr. P. looked upon the completion
of this improvement, as a means of knitting together two
great sections of the country. He thought it promised
to lie a bond of union and amity between the Southern
and Western Stages, and tliat it would tend to the pre
ventionof the catastrophe of a separation. In this view
ol ita consequences, 1m* most Iteartily desired that it
■night succeed. Jlut should their worst fears be realized,
its e l feels would be equally beneficial. looking to tl»e
possible contingency of a separation, this improvement
would exert a powerful influence in uniting the destinies
of tire South and tin* West, and in forming between them a
firm and lasting alliance founded on the basis of mutual
interest.
Mr. Marshall explained.—It innst be apparent to
tlie gentleman himself,and to cxjfy member of Uk* House,
tlmt nothing which I said co^eyed the idea that tho
gentleman from Northauiptonrcherished a wish for the
dissolution of the Union. He gave as a reason for pro
moting this scheme, that it would be important in that
contingency. I he reamin w!:ich governs me, said Mr.
