The undorsigned, a member of the Commit
tee on Publio Lands, dissents from the argu
ments and conclusions of the foregoing report,
against granting lands to the several States for
the ltenefit of the indigent insane, boiug of
(opinion (hat Congress has the authority to do
this, and would aot wisely and properly in ap
plying a portion of the publio lauus to so hu
mane and oommendable a purpose.
The objeotions to it, as unconstitutional and
inexpedient, are bolieved to be equally untena
This i? given in express terme by the 3d
?eotion pf article 4 of the Constitution of tho
United States, via:
"The Congress shall have power to dispose
of, and make all needful rules and regulations
respecting, the territory and othor proporty of
tho United States; aud nothing in this Con at i
. tution shall be so oon strut d as to prejudice any
claims of the United States, or of any nartiou
lar State."
More broad and comprehensive terms are
not to be found in the English language than
those whioh are employed to givo this power to
Webster defines "to dispose of:} as follows:
" To part with ; to alienate; to sell; to bestow;
to give away; to transfer by authority."
Johnson's definition of the term " to dispose
of' is, 'to part with; to apply to any purpose;
to transfer to any other person or use; to put
into tho hands of another; to give away ; to
put away by any means."
The existence of this power by Congress to
dispose of the publio lands is ooncedod, and
has always been exoroisod. But it seems now
to bo clamed that it is so limited in the Con
stitution as to prohibit a grant in this onso;
that while the public lands may bn constitu
tionally disposed of to a certain )>ortion of tho
States, by grants for railroads, and tho like, to
dispose of them for other purposes, or to the
other States, i* unconstitutional; that they may
be disposed of for almost any imaginary con
sideration, but cannot for purposes of groat
publio interest.
Those who assort and assume this?for it is
mere assertion and assumption?ought at luast
to bn able to point out the provision of tho Con
stitution oontaining the prohibition.
It does not touch this question to talk long
or learnedly about this being a Government of
limited powers, and that eaoh department
should be confined to the authority Conferred.
Here a power is expressly given to Congroas;
and the qnestion is, whether it is general, or
limited to a particular class of eases.
It is insisted, in reply to all objeotions of
this kind, that tho right of Congress to disposo
of the public lands is oonferred by words of a
sense as general and comprehensive as any
that could have been need, and without any
limitation, oxcept that oontaincd in the same
clause, thatnothing in this Constitution shall
be so oonstrued as to prejudice any olaims of
the United States, or of any partioular State."
To understand this restriction, it should bo
borrfe in mind tbat several of the old States?
including New York, Virginia, Massachusetts,
and Connecticut?had granted and ccded the
public lands claimed by them to the United
Statos before the adoption of tho Constitution.
(North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia,
did so afterwards.) And it was conditioned in
these deeds of oession, that tho land shouid be
" a common fund for the use and benefit of all
tho Statos."
The rostriotion in the Constitution had ref
erence to this, and was intonded~to enforce it.
Its true meaning is to direct tbat Congress, in
disposing of the pnblio lands, should have due
regard to tho rignts of all the States, and dis
pose of them as their oommon property and
lor their common benefit. The grant now pro
posed to be made oomplies with this oondition,
for it is genera] and just to all the States.
The power of CorgresB to dispose of the pub
lic lands is absolute and unqualified, subject
only to this restriction, (which has never been
regarded, and is, in this case, inapplicable.) It
may dispose of them by any moans, or for any
purpose, in regard to which it has power to
legislate, by sale or gift?in fact, in any man
ner it doems proper.
If this power exists at all, (as is admitted,) it
is a general and unlimited power of disposal.
Neither the manner in which, nor the purposos
for whioh, tho public lands may be dis|>oeed
of are prescribed by the Constitution. It gives
a broad and a genera) power, (exoept the di
rection to rogard tho claims of all the Statos
in its disposal) For what purpdfo they should
be granted is not a qnestion of power, but of
sound policy. This invokes an inquiry, not
into the right of Congress to mako the grant,
(for that it clearly has.) but intethe expediency
and propriety of making it for the purpose do
sired. It was presumod Congress would die
jxwc of the lands in a proper manner, or this
power would not have been intrusted to it. "It
could not have l?een safely given to any other
department of the Government; and it rests
upon the same ground as the right of Congress
to dispose of other property belonging to the
United Statos. But how can Congress have
the constitutional right to make grants to some
of the States, and not to the others ??or to
grant lands to build a railroad or a university,
and not an insane asylum ? Those who con
tend far anything so absurd ought to give a
reason for it; yet none has been advanced.
(Congress has exercised the power of grant
ing away and disposing of the public lands
ever since the establishment of the Govern
ment; and its acts havs been approved and
sanctioned by the Executive and Judiciary De
partments under every President, and in all
the courts.
For more than fifty yearr?under the ad
ministrations of Jefferson, Madison. Monroe.
Adams, Jackson, Van Bnren, Tyler, I'olk. and
Fillmore?Congross has been constantly ma
king grants of the public lands for almost every :
conceivable object and purpose. All these acts
have l?een approved by the Presidents, and
sanctioned and held valid and constitutional
by tho oonrts; and it was never found out they
wsre unconstitutional antil now. If anything ?
can ever bo settled, this power of Congress
must at this day be so regarded.
Among the various purposes for which these
grants have been made are the following: For
schools, for seats of Government, f ?r roads, for
colleges, f??r salines, for publio buildings, for
seminaries of learning, for river improvements,
for universities, for individuals, for companies
f??r corporations, for private olaims, for military
servioes, for internal improvements, for canals,
for railroads, and for deaf and dumb nsyl urns
Grants have been made for deaf and dumb
asylums ?o Connecticut, Alabama, Arkansas,
and Florida These cannot lw distinguished,
in principle, from grants for insane asylums.
Congress ha* not only made these grants
often, but to largo amounts. Hie amount of
land granted away by Congress exooeds the
amount that has been sold.
An official statement from the Commissioner
of Public I.ands shows that thero has been
granted to the States and Territories named,
up to June 30, 1853, for railroads, internal im
provements, schools, and deaf and dumb asy
lums, as follows

native mind, and write# with the esse, the elassn a I
correclne?< of diction, and that choice selection of
