States,' In reference to Colorada, state t That
there Is over 2.1,000,000 acres oi agricultural
and pastoral lands In that Territory, hlch
statement Is answered by referenco to tho rc-
Sort of the Burreyor General of Colorado,
ated August 10th, 18G3, to tho Commis

annual repori It appears., (Fages 103 to 108,
Gen. Fiei
lerce savs :
The extreme limit of tho amount of land ci ra
fale of cultivation In Colorado will not vary much
from 2,500,000 aees "
Onlv about 250.000 acres of which are cul

1 50,000 acres pre-empted the only land In the
Territory to which any of the inhabitants
havo a title tbo rest Is tho property of the

Hon. B. F. Wade, of Ohio. In the debate In
tho Senate on tho bill for tho admission of
Colorado, said:
"We have paid their Jurors, and done everything
to enable them to carry on their administration, at
oar expense, ana at ineir win. maeea, inn oonai
tlon of a Territory nnder the guardianship of tho
unitca biaiet in in my jnagmcai, Letter ior too
maeset of tbo people than when they form a State
government "
Tne unueu mates pays ino expenses oi mo
executive, legislative, and judicial depart
ments of jhe territorial gocrnment. The
people make the laws, and the J-edcral power
provides for their enforcement. To change
this system for one of great uncertainty, upon
tho request of a majority of 135 only, of a
oto of about 6,000, is absurd, until satisfied
the people are able and determined to replace
it by one equally as good: and tho simple
question is, whether a population of not oter
25,000 can do this a population of the most
transitory description, with no public build'
ings, no title to the mines, to but little of the
land, and under a constitution not supported
by a large majority of tho people.
Upon tMs point, the lion. Charles Sumner
read, in the debato upon the admission of
Colorado, tho following letters from distin
guished citizens of the Territory:
r ' Pardon me, bat I trust you will be able to dis
cover that our btate movement it entirety prema
ture, we Dave not over 23 000, ir indeed we nave
over 20,000 Inhabitant In the Territory. The
frlandi of the movement claim 155 votei majority
for tho State oonsttlatton. I will never believe It
carried, at they never published the oQcUl vote,
Imply tbo 15 majority. Oar property valuation
to put the taxes upon It only $8,t00,000 or $9 000,
00Q. The whole movement was got up with muney
by a lew tnierestea "
Mr. Sumner said :
"I have la my hand a memorandum, given to mo
yesterday, prepared and signed by a gentleman
from Colo.ado, who arrived In town, I boleve,
yesterday morning, and who Is actually president
of the territorial ooancil, Henry 0 Leach He has
undertaken very briefly to set forth some of the
irregularities mat oeourreof ana i win reea inem
"1. Ihe convention which framed the oonatltu
tlon wat not elected by the people, being simply
delegates appointed ny caucuses oraereu oy politi
cal parties
11 2. The eountles of EI Peso. Pueblo, Huerfano,
Costilla and Conejot were not represented In the
convention, and bad no part in making the consti
tution These eountles represent one third of the
population oi uoioreao
' 3 The constitution was submitted to the peo
ple without the tafeguards and protection of law one
week In advance of the annual territorial election, It
wai publicly asserted that If submitted on the tame
asv too peopie wouia vow it aown
"4 information toat tne constitution wet to ue
voted on did not roach the county of Conejos until
ten o'clock on the morning of the election
"J. None of the provisions of tbo enabling act
of 1HM were complied with, except the submlsalon
of the constitution to the people, and tbls was done
llnout authority or protection or law,
6. The total vote wa

This vote was obtain! bv a union of the noil
tlelans of all parties and tbo support of all the
newt papers In the Territory, there being no organ
ised opposition, and no protection of law from
fraudulent voting
"7, The election for State offloert In November
waa without authority or protection of law, and
large frauds were perpetrated, the entire vote of
tbo first ward In Bonver being declared fraudulent
by the canvassers The Leftist Ire Assembly were
elected at the aame time and by the tame vote
"8 Fifty -eight voters in the o unty or summit
elected two Representatives and one Senator to the
btaie' Liegisi&iure iiedbt u jjeach --
The lion James G rimes, of Iowa, speak
lug of his ovi n Stat?, and of Colorado, said
"With a population of one hundred and thirty
or one hundred and forty tbousaud, and after we
bad been In a territorial condition for twelve or
fourteen year", with a vast amount of, real estate
owned by the State, (for the land cQlaes were
opened there In 1838) and by non residents, which
wat subjaot to taxation for the purpose of support
ing the Government, jet the very first thing that
the people of the State of Iowa wore compelled to
do was to go Into the money market or New York
and borrow money at the enormous rate of ten per
oent In those days, for the purpose of defraying
the necessary expenses of tbo Government) and for
ten or twelve years we were compelled to pay that
Interest and at the tame time be constantly in
debt, because we bud not property sufficient to
support the Gorernioenli and why? Let mo tell
gentlemen who have a t lived In a new biate that
they oannot conceive of the constant drain that li
made upon everybody wh emigrates to one of
these States Lverything Is new. Dwellings have
to be built, farms havo to be plowo I and improved,
school houses have to bo erected, churohes must be
built, roads must be constructed, and charitable
Institutions must be established All theie things
bar to be done, at well as the ordinary State,
county, and township taxes paid, nnd the result Is
that tne people in a new bta.e lute uoiorauo, wun
the DODiiIatlon that there is In that State, and with
comparatively no real estate to tax, nothing but
personal property, will bo oppressed with taxation
If I wt re a citlscn of Colorado I would remonstrate
and protest against the admission of the Btate
under all circumstances until there was at least
one hundred thousand people there to support the
State government. I oannot conceive of anything
that can be more oppressive, that can poiilhly be
more Injurious to the people of that Territory than
to allow ber, with her small population, to come
Into the Union and bo compelled to pay ber own
expenses from this time forward ''
lbe lion, i nomas a. itenaricKs said:
"Are benatore riant sure today that Colorado
wishes to come Into the Union, when the vote Is
so nearly belanoed but a difference of lfto?
Where Is the expression of the popular opinion of
the people of Colorado In favor of this constitution
taaijasunei vi in aaamting a owe wnon ?,ofv
out of 6.8B5 votei sbt thev do not went thlt eon
lUttttloa? Oagbt ws to bt in hot but to admit the.
State when there waa no authority of law for the
convention) when there waa no election when there
was1 a mere selection of delegates by county dele
gates, and when there wat an aggregate vote of
omy o,ovor"

" Twenty five thousand It the largest

Tho Surveyor Ueneral also reports:
"The great drawback to the settlement of Colora
do li the want of system In the method of Irrigation. '
"An emigrant generally leavei tbe Missouri

to make a crop, provided be eoald And a farm al
ready prepared for workings this ha cannot do,
and to dig the ditch necessary to Irrigate a farm
will consume the whole summer, and take more
money than most emigrants have. Tbe eonse
3uence lr, that thousands come here, speed a few
ays trying to get a farm, and go on further srrsf."
Messrs. Chaffee and Evans further say:
"Much of the land under cultivation In tbe
southern portion of tbe Territory It npon the Met
lean grants, and consequently the record of the
Land Office do not folly Indicate tbe extent of oar
farming Interest! "
Of these lands General Fierce, In his an
nual report, dated October 1, 1864, (page 06,
Report Land Commissioner,) says:
"The survey and sale of this land would proba
bly drive oat the present population."
Messrs. Chafleo and Evans further say:
"The estimated number of farms now under cul
tivation It 3,000, with an average annnal product
of 1 000 each $9. 000,000 "
This extraordinary and startling assertion
will surprise no one more than It will the
farmers of Colorado.
Messrs. C. and E also give a list of several
totona in the agricultural district of Colorado,
but one of which f Denver) has any promi

"The gold crop of tbe present year (18ft 4) has

"Over 130,000,000 (greenbacks) have been in

"The amound of gold forwarded east by tbe bank

1, 1004, is omy yj,zv4,300 "
It is perhaps unnecessary to add that all
the gold taken out of Ihe mines in Colorado
Is immediately sent to the States and ex
changed for currency the gold not being
used as a circulating medium in that Terri
tory, as it is in California.
Tho 810,000,000 was not wholly invested
in nermanent tmorovements. but in emcri-
meriting on new processes, sinking shafts, &z ,

J ho last vote in Colorado Is not given, for
the reason that the canvassers threw out a
great many of tho ballots, because illegally

Over a thousand, it is currently reported,
were thrown out from one district, Tho
number returned from the scleral Toting
precincts was over 7,000.
Tho votes polled at the several elections
since 1861 indicate a steady decrease in tho
population of Colorado.
The postal receipts from Colorado for tho
last two years is another Indication of a fall

In the fall of 1864 was elected delegate, lie

While the Territories around Colorado are
more flourishing, and make richer discoveries

be to show a small vote. IJy reference to the
finance report of the year ending Juno, 30,
1865, it will be seen that the number of per
ions assessed in Colorado is something over
4,000, while in Rhode Island it Is over 26,000,
and In the sixth district of Massachusetts
about 19,500 Rhode Island six and Massa
chusetts four times as many tu Colorado.
Colorado has furnished over 3,000 soldiers
for the war. tho most of whom have been on
duty In that Territory or In the adjoining
States, and had an opportunity and did vote
at most of the elections.
It Is not io v purpose to Impugn the mo
tives of any man who supports the bill for
the admission of Colorado as a State, or even
to express my opinion as to the reasons given
or means used to secure for it in that Terri
tory a majority of 155, but simply to present
tbe fo retro in it tacts, and to ask if a Territory
has a just claim to admission Into the Union
as a sovereign State, whose population in
18G1 was 25,329, and which wo have good
reason to believe has been decreasing ever
since, and will continue to decrease until
mining is more successful and profitable than
it has been a Territory (which In the lan

$30,000,000 was invested to make it good ;
where thousands of farmers go, get discour
aged, and then go on further west where
there Is but one small iron furnace, teryfew
coal veins opened and worked, one salt spring

two and a half millions of acres of land ca
pable of cultivation, where to survey and sell
the land drives off the inhabitants. Ilay sells
in winter at $500 per ton, and grain at from
18 to 25 cents per pound, no railroads and
whero they have but few if any public build
ings. Are its people, under such circum
stances, In a condition to assume the respon
sibilities and burdens of a State government?
A question answered in the negative by
the Senate of tho United States, March 14,
when the bill for the admission of Colorado
was defeated by yeas 14, nap 21. During
which ticbate Congressional Globe, page
1358) the Hon. II. F. Wade, of Ohio, an
swered it as follows
"la my Judgment, Ibis Territory It not In such a
condition as that, Injustice to ber own people, and
In justice to tbe other States of tbe Union, she
should now be admitted Into tbe Union '
lion. James Grimes, of Iowa, said:
Nothing, In my conviction, could possibly be
more ruinous to the people of Colorado themselves,
than to permit her to erect hen-elf Into a State with
a population of only from 15,000 to 25,000."
lion John Conness, of California, said:
"My heart and feelings go with them In their pro
gress fully 1 but I do not believe that X should be per

In tho debate on the reconsideration of the
vote by which the bill for the admission of
u 010 ratio was aeieaieu in me senate, ine
Hon James Doohttle said.
"Now. Mr. President. uDcn these facts, when
tbe population Is 10 small, when it Is so doubtful
even whether the people of Colorado desire, or a
majority of ber people desire, to be admitted ae a

If it la unjust to not only the people of
the Territory, but to tho pooplo of the whole
country, what question of expediency, or
temporary triumph. Mill justify the admis
sion of Colorado into tne Union as a sov
ereign State! Some Justify it outhe ground
that the vote of the new State is needed to
ratify certain proposed constitutional amend

admitted it will require 28, so nothing Ib
gained by adding uolorado to ine list ol
