STi.i.Mi.N ; I did ho! receive your
invitatiou j.rc-ent at the com
mencement ui v«i;r great work in time
la answer it lot- tlie day. To attend i
could not, oven if the time had boon
longer, a> reasons connected witii the
state of ..Vi-s. UentonV- health, and :m
nccujiatioa of my own. put it out of
my power to return to St. Louis before
September.
I take great interest in the success
of the road of which yo.t make a be
ginning. Lis the central route, and
every national consideration requires
it to ho made, and with the aid ot the
.National (Jot eminent. Hi- Louis, San
Francisco, and Washington city are
on ;t line, and that line is through the
heart and centre of the I Lion, and
the eyes of the Federal (Joverninent
should be fixed upon it. ( ..happily,
they seem to be lixed upon a Southern
sectional route, hardly within the limits
of the United States. 1 send to the
address of the President and Directors
of your Company a dozen copies of a
document just —einted, being a report
of s< ven trilTemit veeonnoissances for
a Southern id Paso route to San
Fran isoo—being !he seven explored
within th • last year by as many dilli-r
--cut o dicers, and exclusive of those
previously made, and also exclusive
of the survey which llie Mexican
boundary commission is to make on
the (>ila river, as a continuation of
the El Paso route ; and of which the
amputation of El Paso from New
Mexico and giving it to Texas was
also an auxiliary measure, 'i ids do

conducted to St Louis, which, if done,

to Sail Urniteiseo by that route than
of coming to Washington city by way

the only national e.uo, and the only

that is no obstacle at ail. as the country

*■ It is worthy of remark that the j
American buffalo has exerted an in
lluenee in the progress of geography
in trackless inonntaiu regions.
Those animals wander in the win
ter in .search of a milder climate, in
herds of several latusand-', to the;
-outhot* the Arkansas river. In these
migrations their size and unwield i.e--
makc it dlliieult for them to pa - over ,
high mountains. When, therefore, a
wc I-lrodden huflalo path is met with, 1
it is advisable to follow it, as being j
-tire to conduct to the most convenient ;
path across (be mountains The he.-t 1

This is nil true, and 1 lie mountain
men can show these 1:1 is and passes
in as little time ns a horse enn travel
to them. There are, therefor ;, plenty
of goad passes for the. central route ;
and a* fur the snow, it i« dry, and but
little impediment to a locomotive : nnd
besides, where deepest it is in ravines

it is thus that tin. 1 railroad from .Moscow

a great object which concur.; ■ the wad
tare of millions will in the end succeed
over till op; o-itlon. If not made by
the federal (!ovei ninent, as it should
he, it will by made piecemeal, by com
panics nnd communities, ’l ints, you
have begun three hundred miles of it
at one end ; the people of (. ali'briiin
propose beginning at the othi r in 1 ;
and the Mormons propose to make it
from the great Salt Lake to the .s’hvra
Nevada. Hut the Covermm til should
lake the whole upon itself, eompetua
titig companies for what they have
done, nnd make it a free load, save
the repairs. The public lands have
long been consult red a proper fund
for making national roads ; end now
that they are stjtnmdeied by the hun
dred millions of acres in bounties,
wbieh go to speculators, the only way
to save thorn from spoliation, and to
make them available, for present and
future public good, is to apply them in
mass to this (and other) great national
objects. 1 wish you success within
your State ; further than that you oo
not go. Ihe Government should be
pros ed without cessation, and fir t to
make a common road from the frontiers
of Mifsottri to California; which would
be a summer's work for a hundred
men, under a practical country road
maker, with some mountain men to
show the buffalo trails and passes.
The rations projects for getting the
public lands, pressed upon Congress
by individuals and companies, to make
a railway to the I’aeitic. are onlv
schemes of speculation to make aland
stock to be sold in market. The
honestest of them (a Heston eotrpanv)
openly propose to found a banking es
tablishment upon theirs, if they gel it.
Ail V. hitiiey’s projects are to him anil
ids “ assigns.” Strike out the assigns,
or put an amendment into his bill that
no member of Congress, nor anv one
related to a member within the Le
vilietil degi r s oFprohibited marriages,
.shall be an as.-ignee, and Ids project
would never be heard of again. A
circulating land stock, or a circulating
jobbing stock i- what they are after;
and the prospect of sharing in a hun
dred millions of acres of public-land
plunder conciliati s adherents for pro
jects as absurd as impudent, and winch
it would be as criminal for Congress
to grant as was the Yazoo fraud. Hut,
courage. The right prevails in the
end, hut not without persevering i
exertion.
