Mr. Camfibell moved the following res
Resolved, That a committee be appointed to
report a bill providing for the apportionment of
representatives among the several states, according-
to the fourth census.
Mr. C. w;as desirous that the subject be
taken tip at an early period of the session,
in order that the principle on w hich the
apportionment should be based, should be
fully examined and deliberately settled.
The legislatures of several of the states,
he remarked, were now in session, and it
might be important that the subject come
before them at an early day, to enable them
to district the states pursuant to the act
providing for the apportionment, without
incurring the delay and expense of con
voking the several legislatures for that ex
press object. He thought the Census
had been so far accomplished as to enable
the committee, that should be appointed,
to enter immediately upon the considera
tion of the subject.
Mr. Cocke, of Tennessee, moved that
the resolution lie on the table.
Further remarks were made on the sub

redemption of land bold for direct taxes in cer
tain cases," or cf otheiwise granting relief to
the owners of the land where it has been pur
chased on behalf cf the United States.
Mr. Wood suggested, that the motion
of the gentleman from Massachusetts
(Mr. Lalhrop) was not perhaps sufficient
ly broad to cover the object in view. His
(Mr. VYr,s.) attention had been drawn to
the subject, and he had drafted the follow

proposed it :

the time for the redemption of lands sold for the

dence, that such person is in such reduced cirr
cumstanees as to come within the provisions of
the acts of 1818 and 1820.
The resolution was adopted.
Mr. Cook, of Illinois, submitted the fol
lowing resolution :
Resolved, That the committee on the public
lands be instructed to inquire whether airy, and,
if anv, what provision is necessary to be made to
enable the people of the state of Illinois to open
a canal through the public land to connect the
waters of Lake Michigan with the Illinois river.
Mr. rloyd, of Va. opposed the resolu
tion. He thought that Congress had al
ready sufficiently evinced its liberality to
the new states. On a former occasion,
he had proposed a resolution to appropri
ate a portion of the public lands, for the
endowment of colleges. That resolution
had received the decided opposition of
the new states. A constitutional question
was raised on the subject, which, if it did
not convince, at least created so much
doubt, in his own mind, as to induce him.
to forbear to press it. Nor could he, in
the present instance, as a member of a
state which had done as much at least as
any state in the Union for the general ben
efit, consent to a proposition of this sort.
As well might Virginia ask for an appro
priation of the public funds for the pur
pose of completing canals to the chy of
Richmond. Were such a proposition to
be made, he entertained no doubt that it
would meet with opposition from the very
quarter from whence this resolution had
proceeded. "Mr. F. was disposed to leave
the subject of canals to the energy and
ability of those states through which they
pass, and for whose benefit they are in
tended. Mr. Cook replied : He did not expect
that a proposition, so reasonable as he con
ceived this to be, would meet with oppo
sition, especially in this stage of its pro
gress. The states northwest of the Ohio,
he could assure the hon. member from
Virginia, felt grateful for all the favors
they had received but in the present
case no favor was asked. The object of
the resolution was not to solicit a donation
from the general government to assist in
building the canal but merely to reserve
a narrow strip of land in the direction of
the contemplated canal and through which
it should pass. By this measure, the go
vernment, instead of impairing its funds
would increase them. Such an act would
undoubtedly enable the government to
dispose of the reservation hereafter at a
price greatly enhanced, and, at the same
time, virtually authorize the government
of Illinois to go on with its contemplated
