tain the means of propagating par
'siular politioal doctrines, and tr the ,
.purpose of. controlling publie sen
tiint. We have already had a good
deal of ejepurietice inl this uatter. I'
lately seent at least one article
huahed in an organ, and editorially
titrteduced, as possesing tihe eltire
,ortions of the original publicat ion. t
in fact, one half of the original
'Atilel which it professed to gnote, was
exclded, and the portion republished
"was turned- to anl entirely dil'rent pur
eose fromt that desigietd'by its auther.
Ji.'finst part published apparently as
- - dlOl was quite Unteeptionable,'aIld
this latter portion. whichi did riot ap
pe giving an offensive character to
-1 al1. . It reminded me of Milton's ar
-cha el, ruined, still beautifl and ima
p1osing in the upper portion of his,
erson, bitt very much deformed about
tI lower extremities, [laughter.] For
lnyself I decline to give such papers
1e ,public patronage. While I am
ot..payiig. tu the last cent every
man in our employ, and while I am
'or making a liberal allowance for that
i.time-while I am unwillinig that any

- Iberal, -and generous compensation,
ety deomftd that our accounts shall t

. wisa;o know fur what 'we are eon
racting. When the bargain is to
o mae all, the printers int tle coun
try, shouJd b6 itViteud to- come into i
fair Aiid honorable competition. Let
ihe committee receive propositions
from any who may propose to do 0
the work, and then let theim decide as
*Jhey may think proper, according to
.themerits of the several competitors. c
I am in favor of the ainendment of ty I

have the letting of that conttract, will,
for the purpose of' allowing any party 1

that I do not doubt the honesty and

.Mr.. Goi-mani. Tihen I hope the ~
gentlejnan will not continue to insist ~
*that (Ihe course~ of' proceedinmg prttopossed
in this resolution will restult int
corruption. if I sutpp~osed myself (2
capable of an actiont of this kimid, I t
should contsider myself' unworthy of' a e
seat-in this body.
,Mr. Venable. It was no paurt of t
mvy purpose in itaking these r'emsarks, bi
to.implicate may honora ble, gallatt

on Printing. I kniiw that lie would s
recoil from contamination or the ~sus
Pieion of cor'ruption with the setn- n
sibility of a wound--his natutre is tot o
'elevated, and his heart too pure. Th'lis e
iasotrue of' honorable genstlemeni (I
donnettd with him upon01 that comt.
-mttee. I have thme highest confidence t
is them. But they are not prac'tical Jl
ptrinters. They do not understand the ai
- rt and mystery of printtiing, and there- I
f ore :F-jy that the contract should not o
be given unconditionall-y to Dontelson 1p
-& Armstrong, and leave thetm to
set their own prices. Besides, I will
show tat te cens p~rinting ntow,a

, Mr.. Gorman. If the gentlemnnt s
kil1. allow me I will tell hinm fliat "

~Mr. Llamlin,1 is a practicaul priniter. 't
Mr. .Venable. That makes the s
ehaneo a great deal deal beete. Butt, i
-as I was proceeding to *say, I wille
show that the census printing udert'
Blair & Rives was a very "diflieret

I intend to state, -whaltt Blair & Rives e
imde- by that contract. Th'ley confess e
fa large amount, and it is theirs, and r
fairly theirs. But if I have made anla
improvident bargain once, and did not v
avoid the mistake the next time, thten 'I
experience would be worth less. We tl
learn nothing if not made more i
cautious, and we repeat the same s
blunder. -It is best that shoutld strike t.
out. the names of the indvidutals r
designated from the resolution. The',v fi
es may obtain the contract if they will a
perform- it- choaper and better thtan t
bat whienever thin bjarguain is mnad,

hope some gentleman will tell me.

Building Plank Roads.
Th'lic report of the Engineers of the
Aiderson Plank Itoad explains so
clearly the manner of building much
roads, that we ire induced to take 11roii
it the followingf; extract:
The lumber used fbr planking the
r4oaid mu1ist be of sound tiiiber, having
square e(lges, it must be eight feet
long, and three inclies thick. Tle
stringers miust be three iniches thick.
sliowinig five inches Jzhee at the small
end. All trees, stutips, roots and
r scks, are to be reiiioved fbr the di.
taice of seventeen l'ect tromii the centre
of the road, so that. inl fit) case shall
cither plank or stringer rest on stump,
root, or rock. All dead trees are to
be removed ir the distance of30 teet
front the road. 'The road bed is to be
22 feet wide, aid the centre raised 24
inches above the bottom of the side
ditches. This is to be observed where
it) cutting or filling is required.
Where there are slight inequalities in
the natural surthee of' the ground. al
though the grade maiay be wider that
required; yet. they should be removed
inasinuch as their removal will add
greatly to tile appearance of the roal.
A ditch is to be foiniiaeu upon each side
of, the road. So as to aIrry oil' ill sur
tce water to the most conveniciit cross
sluico, or other place (Ii lischarge'; said
ditch is to le five feet wide at top and
two at bottoi, :ndl the entire slo1pe to4
be on the side next to the road bed.
And such other sluices, and lateral
ditches, as may be jiecessary to secure
the perfect driinage of t lie road. These
will le most iecessiary where the water
will reqiuire to pass uider I lie road, or
from one side dithi to the other. The
road will le required to he sq graded,
as not to have at greater rise than f'our
feet in one htiunidrel. The plink are to
he laid on fouir string pieces. Tihee
ieceM are to be so hlid, that the oiter
edges of tle Outer string pieces shall be
live auid a halt' feet apart. and each to
lie at equal distanc(Jles fromi the centre
of' the plank; the distance between the
outer and inier string pieces to le six
inches. The plank must have a firm
bearing on the stling pieces.
The outer end oIf lie plank *hould
be one inch lower than tile eII at the
centre of' the road. The stringers are
to rest firtiily on the earth their Cutire
length. Partictilar attentiun inust be
paid to having thu earth well packed
roud1 stirers , 1 Ni so it ii Ic ihirh
[lie p1 all aie ro rest firmly onl them,
tihey fuust ilso rest fir.-aly otn themi,
they uizust also rest egnually~ firm on the
