In the House Ikptrsenffiittes on the pro position to Prttsc a Committee of inces ligation into nthged frauds. In the man agement of certain Jlailroad Compan ies, on Gi Ike. 1&C9. - Mr. SrK-iKKK: The last session of this General Assembly made extravagant j appropriations to ceitaiiis Railroad Com- j puuiy, the faithful and honest application j nl which might have In ought relief tooui h distressed people, in the development of the industrial resource of the State. , The report of the Treasurer submitted this ession, shnwa the en.ck owned by the Slate iu Raihoads and other corpora- lions to be the sura of $T,707,5t0. If this stock, was worth its Slate would depend nominal value the for the purpose of paying her debts. It would seem, that a State li tvmg sK'b a Stupendous amount of lock in Railroads would have such a basis for capital, that her credit would stand pre eminently high., in all parts of tbe nation. But 12,600,000 l this stock wen; taken under the authority of ihe acts of this General Assembly, "last' winter : and Roads not being built, of course the slock i worthless. In order to show ihe necessity of Vigid economy and a stti.t invee.ig.it inn iu all frauds upon our rights, let us for a mo racut look at the indebtedness , qf the State, which is made up aa follows : The "old debt," 817,215,015.

Iiad this been done, the people would have cheerfully submiuiitd to tho burden of taxation, in the hope of seeing the - country rise from prostrasiou and IcUi'-rgy inactivity and enterprise. We would gladly have paid the taxes in ihe'hope of getting them back iu the rapid growth am' development of all ihe resources of the state' aa e could hope from the faiihlul applicanrti of this vast sum, to see the whole country roused to a spirit of imjluslry and perserversnce, and could Hatter ourselves that we were nu the high road to prosperity and greatness; and could anticipate some ol ihe happy "vic-lori.-s .of peace." But instead; doubt, and distrust prevail the whole State. It is said that a mighty "Railroad Ring" has been organized lor the purpose of speculating on t lie .bonds of the Stale. Propositions have been introduced here to investigate the management of tne DU rectoia on these several Railroads. Why, not do it ?

Shall we allow a confederation of swc.ulatora , to deatrnv ihe credit of 'he State, aud bring, pover- and prostration nn tne peoi the people ? These Uireclors on the part of the .Slate are but the agouti of the State ; tiud if they have traneecuded their power, ?ir been guilty fraud, we should hold them to a strict eaeoont.
