Thumbnail for

e,il which can alone be remedied by ou
iw_UMd Canal. By an act of Congress
, permission was granted t<
'^Authorities of Georgetow n to build a cause
- across, and stop up the Southern channe
ALriver, with a viewr to benefit the navigatior
V'heir harbor the work was accordingly done
Irou^h this farm of the river and a shallow
hannel south of Alexander’s Island (where th<
C Jge now stands) the river boats had a saf<
d sheltered navigation to the Town of Alex
and at tnat time Alexandria had a
*“ if not the major, part of the trade of th<
ptornac. I am not old enough to recollect, anc
** have unfortunately no record to resort to,
t 0ur older citizens say, without hesitation
hat from the completion of that work, the rivet
,'rade left as rapidly; and I know, that for years
st not one single boat has reached out
Chan ts. All the produce (and it is but a small
rtion) that does reach us is transshipped al
heavy expense at Georgetown, and the re
turn trade, which is most valuable, entirely lost
This, then, is a positive and serious evil, result
j from the legislation of Congress, and one
'which would have been unquestionably avoided
had we been under the dominion of Virginia—
for obvious reasons:—In the first place, she
would not have consented that any power should
have impeded the navigation of one of her ri
vfrs. and it would have been her obvious duty
to have prevented a possible injury to her peo
i__ rival interest.
Again—had we been under the jurisdiction ol
Virginia, we should have been saved from the
unfortunate subscription to the Chesapeake
>nd Ohio Canal;—unfortunate, not that 1 be
l,ere it was injudicious under the circum
junces then, but unfortunate in the result.—
We anticipated no rivalry or obstruction in its
completion from a neighboring powerful and
wealthy city—which impeded its completion.
Instead of having it finished, as we confident
ly believed, in four or five years, when its pro
fits were expected to relieve us from the burthen
of interest on the debt we had contracted and
remunerate us for the outlay during that period,
we have now been struggling under an annual
weight of about *14.000 for years and see but
small prospect of a change. The prospect of
benefit to the trade of our town, was the
motive of our subscription, and that induce
ment would have operated upon the State:—
She would have felt more disposed to ex
tend a helping hand to that great work on
that account—we should have had an influence
in |)er councils to have urged it; and with our
people to aid and foster, she would have coupled
with ter subscription, the condition that it should
be brought into her territory and ended, as it
ought and unquestionably yet must, at the head
of good ship navigation. I fear 1 am prolix,
that I have extended into argument what it
was only necessary to state as facts and leave
the deductions to be followed out by your more
comprehensive judgment—but the deep interest
1 feel in the matter n»u-t plead my excuse. Now
comes mv proposition for the remedy for the
grievances of Alexandria. As we have not be
nefhted by the legislation of Congress, and as
we occupy their time and distract their at
tention from the great interests of the nation,
when our petty local interests are brought up,
let Congress cede us back again to our native
State. “But you have refused to go.” True,
we have refused; and will continue to refuse to
go back—as beggars, paupers and slaves. We
were placed under the parental (as was suppos
ed) guardianship of Congress as our local le
gislature, a flourishing and thrifty people—we
have been stripped, our trade intercepted or
driven away, beggared and in debt. Who
should have prevented this? or who should aid
us in our efforts to a better state of things? Con
gress unquestionably. Has Congress done so?
I reply boldly in the negative.—What has Con
gress done for Alexandria?—built her a jail:
when her town was half burned down and her
people almost perishing in the inclement winter
of 27,28, Congress extended to them a charita
ble hand, and Congress has given $100,000 to
wards the construction of the Aqueduct;.just
enough to induce a commencement of that
which, if not finished, must end in her total ruin.
But to the remedy: Let Congress return to the
people of Alexandria, with interest, the portion
Virginia gave with them, and it will enable her
to pay her debts, relieve her from her burthens,
and she will then throw herself into the arms of
toe good old Dominion, and ask her protection
and fostering care; and my life upon it that pro
tection—that fostering care will he extended,
A NATIVE VIRGINIAN.
Correspondence of the Journal of Commerce,
Boston, Dec. 15, 1834.
\ ou have noticed no doubt the pardon of Otis
by the President. A very interesting scene oc
curred yesterday at the Rev. Mr. Taylor’s
Church, in which the released man had a prin
cipal part. Mr. Taylor preached upon the ge
neral subject suggested by his circumstances,
and with great eloquence and effect, to a crowd
congregation; at the close of which he re
marked that Otis wished to say a few words,
and turning round to him, gave him permission
~*P**k.—Otis addressed his ‘fellow shipmates’
about ten minutes in a remarkably sensible and
striking manner. He avowed himself on this,
a*on all occasions, innocent of the crime of
*htch he had been accused; but confessed that
ne had been in some specific instances a bad
man-, and that especially he had blasphemed his
*h i r xn the most sllocktng manner. On the
n°.e, he considered what had happened to him
through false testimony) as the judgment of
j**1 in his manner of life; and he expressed
thankfulness that be had been spared
indi life* Wilh *he Jl*dge, JU«T. Counsel
‘ th»7aw’ declared himself wholly satisfied;

It is with heartfelt pleasure we state, that ev«
