NATIONAL ROAD. . '
I have been, much gratified by the re-
msrks which have been made In the Pre
sident's. Message, and. the report of the
SicreUry of Wii accompany Irtg. it, on
the subject pf internal improvements, and
the principles which have been adopted
in carrying into effect the act of the 30th
of April last, authorizing the President te
cause tbe necessary surveys, pians ana es
timates M tnadofc wch ;jwads.rnd
canals as he may deem. of national Ira
portance in a commercial or military
point of-View, or necetwr; to the trant
portatioa of tbe mail.
One of tbe most important routes em
brered iti these principles, I -conceive to
be that for a durable road from the seat
of Government to the city of New-
Orleans; which, when executed, will
greatly facilitate the operations of com
merce between the Atlantic states and
the great emporium of the west, by com
municating more promptly,' and more
certainly, commercial information be
tween the Atlantie cities and that Impor
tant point. It will also enable tbe gov
ernment to hold a more prompt sod sure
communication with the Important, but
as yet feeble, section of tbe country lying
on the Gulf of Mexico, which,Hn time of
war, may be of tbe utmost consequence
to its security. -
t Between the Seat of Government and
New-Orleans, three routes will present
themselves for examination, each claim'
ing certain advantages. Tbe one extend
ine aloncr through the seata of the govern
ments of the several southern states, and
passing the principal rivers at the highest
point where tide navigation ceases

probably pass through Danville, in Vir
