I here express, have been formed after severe and mature delib eration. 1 irst, and most important of all ' is the removal of the , bar at the mouth of the river. The time has como when this great work should be donoi : Wo nro ablo to do it, and our necessities demand that it should bo donp,W doni mtc. Delay on this subject is particularly dangerous.- Wo live on the banks of a great and noblo river. ' It drains a large tract of country full and overflowing with nat ural wealth. The cemmeroo'of this great Valley must pass in and out of our river, and always will, if. we do justice o ourselves. ,. . . . Tho existing cities and villages iu' our County will always form the har bors within which the shipping of this pro' Y?ile7.yjLL JLts t4rp)j?S JLod weather, if we do but our duty. In the Northern tier of towns of our County, wo have an rxhaustless ur. ply of Plaster, and Michigan plaster is oi auoIi superior quality, that the demand for it is on the increase, and can now bo supplied. ; The freight on it from Grand Rapids to Central Mich igan, and , lmdiana is so great, that companies have been formed to build Railroads to" 11, from Jackson and Albion. Thoso ; roadij wjty; be built, and at least 'on of tneiii sjeedify, and it h remain liwith -ws -to determine' whether thoso roads shall connect with our f iypr liotd, and coVmtinir'ato fdai hero to tho plaster beds by water, or whethei" they '"shall 'pass by 'u us and le4Tflji Us',!aAv station. " If. tho former, it omploys our docks, - our water-crafts, ,'and ' Oftf ; laborers and gives to our merchants tho trade of supplying them with their food and clothing.

' : . It is estimated that during the year 1004, eighty million foet of lumber was manufactured in tho mills on the river, in" this, County. This amount will bo increased twenty million the prosont year,' making ono hundred million, which , would pay a tax of $1,000, or sufficient to pay the inter est on the entire loan. : fit;. It is estimated that there will be fear hundred thousand barrels of salt manufactured the present year, which at two cents per bbl. will pay a tax of 8,000. Tlieso taxes alono' will pay both principal and interest of this dobt, togethor with all cost of colloo iidn, in seven years . . - - liut should theso funds fad to bring In a sufficient, rovenue to pay the in torest, or principal, the Board of Su pervisor may assess the balance of the property benefitted by the im provement. .

I It was further provided that ; the Board might also ?, impose a. general tax on the property of the County, if they saw fit This provision was put in merely to give credit to tho Bonds, as from the showing. above, no news-' eity for such taxation can over possibly xtat. " . -i Of course it is net necessary under the law that the whole amount of this specific ta iwlle levied ia- any one year.

But important as salt and' lumber are fo' these, our new customers, the great object to them is to get their supply of plaster from us. When these roads are com pleted . tho plaster trade of Ray City and our neighboring villages will far exceed our manufacture either of salt or of lumber. I would suggest that with a' view to this trade, which is soon to be thrown open to us, that examinations of the plaster lands cf tho Bay be made under your direction, and enough of them be secured to insure to us a considerable portion of tho plaster : trado. ; When poned for all other purpoeos, both oommercial and for convonienco; the construction of: a road from Bay City to' connect at either of tho Saginaw, is of the ut most importance, and must always remunerate ns well for our outlay. Another important movement is on foot to build a plank read to Midland City. Ihe importance of thi enter prise cannot be overstated V hen this road is -constructed. Bay City will receive the trade of over' one-half of the 'entire lumber .interests of this Valley. ' It is this trade which has built up the merchants of Saginaw City, - and of East Saginaw. They have divided it equally between them, and have become rich from it. With this road completed Bay City becomes a new competitor for this trade. ' Not to divido it with our sister cities above us, but to take it all.
