motive of the "Huntington ring." It is

by defeating the only possible competing
scheme in tho present condition of the
country. Congress has no power now
to control ana regulate this monster
monopoly by effective legislation. The

acilio bill on tho contran
expressly provides that that road aha
forover be "a free and open highway

the courts so aa to insure impartiality
and equity in its management and the
enjoyment of its benefits by all sections;
auu il is expressly proniDiicu irom en

gress docides to aid In building the

apology for ita monstrous proposition to
turn over the Texas and Pacifio line and

seven short sections following the

Kor one I am not content with "plans

by "a distinguished Virginian who is

I prefer the nuked facts and to argue
from them. We know the history of
tho present monopoly. Its facts aro bo-
foro tlio world and I have cullnted a
few of them in this paper. As to Mr
lluntitiglon'if purposes before Congress
I look to his bill which ho ask shall
become a law and not to his aruunients.
1 havo stated Its substance fairly. As
to Colonel Scott's scheme if you choose
but ill fuel tho scheme ol'Hl'i'J gentlemen

this country including a large and
unanimous delegation from Virginia

In November last I go also to the
records. In the one I see utter ruin to
tho brightest hopes of tho South and
oppression to tho entire country. In the
other I see tho prospect within lour

continent forever under the control of
the people or this country nml guarded
against all possible abuse and within
nnr reach withnut the lew nf one ilnl-
bir of taxation on a single human being

schemes 1 choose the latter. And to
my mind it is incomprehensible how in
the South at least there can bo found a
man who will hesitate one moment
on tho question as to what Congress
should do in tho premises.

set out by the M. Uiuis Convention in
a paper presented by the Hon. Jacob
Thompson of Memphis as chairman of
a committee (a gentleman who is a
rhansce of I harisocs amongst the
strict constructionists of the Federal
Constitution) in supporting tho propo-
sition for tho aid of Government credit
to the Texas and Pacific road 1 find the
whole argument condensed and adopt
it in conclusion. Tho committee and
the convention say :

ple of tho entire country.- Because it
