1 1 Mississirn rail koad. ' . .1 ' i Natche. 10th December, 1338. Mr. Black: Dear Sir On my way through thv interior of our infant, but thriving state to this delightful city, I was most forcibly . struck at the rapid progress which has been made by the Mississippi Hail Rond Comhy in the prosecution of its work of internal improvement in the short perfod of two years. This company wV chartered at a period in onr pecuniary h3tTy hich lirSued every thing but success to the enterprise. Yet not- withstanding itcame into existence under i the most unfavourable auspices and has had - to contend ever since with the greatest pecu niar pressure ever known in onr history, still ' the work has progressed, beyond the most sanguine expectations of its wannest friends, and promises fair, ere long to reflect credi t on our state.and to reap imperishable fame for him who first projected so -grand a design, nd yielded a rich harvest to the company. V ; The company hare for thejr object the ton-, struction of a Rail Road Wading from the-city of Natchee to the town of Cfnton, the seat of iiMstii'e of Madison county. It would be im- DOsiWe to estimate be advantages in all their details, resulting from the completion of the road even thus far, t every d'epartmrnt of trade, and more especially to the planting rn-: terest in those sections of country through which it passes, But sir, is this great work to stop here,' when its interest are not half se ' cured, when scarce one-tcnth of its benefits c are'4isseminated threugh the stats. , f May we S not look forward to the day when it will ultt-mately be extended to some point on the north- .rmrn'. boundaryof our state, tlien taken up by enterprising Tennessee and made to in- . ... ... . r. rv.- -lersecitne great waste ran numviiwi- ' Jesten to Cincinnati. Thfs is all practicable, strictly within the bounds of reason, and as '. -' the spirit of internal improvement is abroad In the land, and we live in an age of enterprise ' xtmif! mm ?Atinpd to become the Jigamoiits by which to unite more firmly the - several farrilies of our cefederacy; may we ' not ba permitted to look upom the Natche and Canton Rail Road as the great root, from !'r which - all the other : bra nches may spring. ; It is . the moral as ' well as the pecuniary results growing out of the construction of "' rail-roads, that should be taken into consider- ation; and verily, Mr. Editor, whenjviewed ' f in this light, it is marvellously strange Chat' tKrw a.'Kn run best -srjorei the means do . not lay aside their sectional and local Jealousies . - 1 I.... 4 aa kolr.a'n.v Land .

Without the candor to acknowledge the fact as it is, and without the abUfty to ex tenuate in the least this nefarious transac tion, the greater portion have t6e discretion to maintain a dicrniQed silence.

" ' .. , Gentlemen of the Senate and House of Representatives, and Friends and Fellow Citizens; ; Invited by the suffrages of my folfowcitizens to the Chief Magistracy of the Republic, I embrace the oppertunity which this solemn occasion; presents, of tendering my deep and endunnsr gratitude for their distinguisnea ia-vor. When I reflect upon the great unanimity of the populnr voice by which I am called to this station. 1 cannot repress the painful ap prehension that Imay not be able to fulfil the hiirh exoectations which such general confi dence implies.

Driven into the assertion of our rights and' the defence of our lives, by the ty ranny and oppression of those with whom it was our misfortune to be associated in govern ment, providential interference in our behalf, from the beginuing of the revolution up to the present period guiding us; in the paths" o victory,' and in the hour of diffi culty, when our own wisdom had failed us. has been so manifest and signal that I cannot but indulgu-'the cheering belief that the Great Dispenser .of all blessings will rstiircontiriue to prosper us in our future career; will be with us in all our trials and struggles,' and in the end enable us to rear such a political super structure, for the preservation of freedom as tyranny cannot shake and. time shall coiitinu ally strengthen. Let then the warm oblationso the heart be treely offered to that Divine Bern who hath thus fur conducted us -to glory and prosperity through1 so many trying" scenes and v. hi 1st We would supplicate a continuance ot his protecting goodness; let it be our , con stant study to demean ourselves individually and nationally in such manner as not to forfeit all claim to the munificence solieitod, by the selfishness of our motives or the folly of "our measures. l.i;vv;;.4',,;.;;..:':-i;; ..VNor should we, in the fullness of prosperity, foriret those irallant spirits whose, military skill and manly energies, under the guidance ot Providence, achieved our independence and laid the corner stone, or a young 'Republic, which we fondly hope may yet excel those nations which have arrived at maturity, in the purity of her institutionsand the stability of her t freedom. Whether the ;sons of the devolution have sealed their devotion to liber- ty hy the blood of martyrdom, or whether they still survive to participate in the fruits of their valor, it is equally our duty.'in justice to our o wn feelings, nnd as a bright example to those who are to come after us, to cherish the me mbry of the dead and to reward the virtues of the living; and by so doing refute the slander of our foes, and enforce the solemn truth that the generous and brave, who draw iij defence of Texas," may; rely with safety On the honor qf her government. i ? - .In the new sphere in which I shall soon be called to act, I trust I bring with me no feel ings unbecoming the first officer of a. free government: Nobler considerations than the gratification of selfish purposes and procrip tive passions must engage the executive atten tion."; 'We have peace to procure, the public credit to estahlish,.end the resources of our country to develope; These, and "similar, are the great concerns, which should engross the attention of every department of Government, and call forth the highest energies of enlight ened patriotism. But thev are not to bo at tained, fellow citizens, witla ut'uuion a.nongt the people, and without reciprocal confiJence between the public depositories of power. If distrust ana jealousy be allowed to take rot in the different departments- of Governmenf, and factiousdissensions spring up in the bosom of our present peaceful and united population, all the efforts of the patriot to advance ' the public" weal will. prove unavailing and abor tive; and the nation, instead of movinsr'on ward to that proud elevation that awaits her; must necessarily recede into 4 debased condition, and possibly sink into irretrievable ruin. .Am one who is ever ready to make a sacri fice ot all personal considerations to the na. turn's welfare, I entreat this enlightened as sembly to receive the renewed assurances of my fixed determination, . in the discharge t)f my official duties, to be euided solely bv the good of our common country; and, so far as uv nurnbie aoilittes will permit, fulfil the expectations of a generous and confidin? neoDle. - ? .

". ' That the people of Texas should have been in favor of Annexation at the time their votes were given on the question, is not a matter of surprise;' when we consider the then existing condition'of the country. She was left after the battle of-Sun Jacinto,; feeble and exhausted; withouV means and without credit; her settlements broken rup; her villages ' desolated by ruthless invasion; and amidst all threatened in her defeiiceless situation with the return of the foe, and a renewal of the sad calamities of war.v Under such a state of things, no wonder that the people, harrassed and almost ruined, bleeding with present wounds and apprehend- ng a farther accumulation ot. ills, should be kvvilling'tp'purchase momentary security by a surrender of their National Independence. Perhaps there was wisdom in the choice; but l am Iree to confess that evan at that time, amidst the darkest period of our, countrs's history, I "never despaired of the 'Republic, but with unshaken confidence in the strength of our cause, and -a- full knowledge of what the energies of a free and determined people were capable of achieving, I rais:ed my feeble voice against -.the- sacrifice which .we were aLout'to make, -without any reterenee to the diiticulties of the moment; and with an eye exclusively directed to .the future glory of the nation, and permanent prosperity and happi hess of all. ' """st v' . -v-: . But these imposing considerations which at One time rendered the proposed political con nection seemingly desirable have lost their validity . and force; indeed they .exist no long er. -Our desolated plains have become green meadows and luxuriant-fields. , Where the iron car of war rolled with destroying ener gy the ploughshare of' the husbandman is driven in peace and safety; and instead of a sparse and suffering population, weighed down with poverty ard blighted hopes,, we behold a powerful and prosperous people, daily increas ing in wealth and numbers, happy in their present possessions and looking forward to still higher and more glorious results, a Invasion too, has lost its terrors. Conscious of our own strength, , we know very well that the enemy has greater reason to apprenena danger trorn us, than we from him.-., A. change has come over the aspect of "our affairs. jWe have risen from our prostration with redoubled energies. And shall we now," in the midst of glorious hopes and increasing vigor, persevere in suicidal policy, originally founded in necessity rather than in choice! Would it not be far better for us since the reasons which influ enced our former verd'et can htfve no further application, to reconsider that verdict, and on good and valid shewing, reverse the judgment! t ' Never was a people so favorably situated as we are, for the establishment of a wise and happy ' government. - AVe have already laid the ground work successfully and well; and it is only necessary now,-that we pay proper attention to the strength, and symmetry of the superstructure. .- As in the natural sciences, discoveries are daily being made; so in the art ot good government, the great teacher, lime, is continually suggesting new, and important changes ' which, as a wise people, we should be ever ready auvisedly to adopt, undeterred by the dread of innovation; and with consci ous rectitude tor our. guide, move boldly on ward in the rapid march of improvement, and keep pace with the progress of successful experiment, : The American constitution is cer tainly -the highest effort of political-wisdom', and approaches more nearly to perfection than any other social compact for the government "of man; yet a fair trial of fifty years has detected in that sacfed chart many serious and alarming errors, .which if we. will but wisely avoid, at the same time adopting its favorable features 'and availing; ourselves .of all the lights of modern experience, we shall soon be able to devise and perfect a system of our own which shall surpass its model as far as that has excelled all others. . To achieve this deirable er.d, we must turn to the great volume of history that lies' open before us, and profit by the lessons it, teaches. . We. may gather from its faithful records, not only a knowledge of what has been tested by other nations, and found to be practically beneficial or pernicious; but we may be taught the more usoiemn and important truth." that the instabi Jity of governments has not resulted from any. thing inherent in the nature of human instil tuiions to flourish and decay like the vegetable kingdom bu- from the fact that all, with the. exception of th.eAmerican Constitution, have been the result of chance, vice and rapacity, instead of being fashioned by reflection, and ' based upon the solid grounds of private integrity ; and public morals.. The principles of virtue and justice: are unchangeable and indestructible, and the government which. shall be reared upon the one and administered upon the other, cannot fail to be an eternal bulwark to. the rights of. man. , "' , ', . VThc founding of a government upon n written compact, between. the people and their ru lers, is certainly .a'; wise invention. By cir; cumscribing tho boundaries of power, it deprives ambition of the means of misrule. Its chief excellence, however, consists in the'eon-fidence and safety which every individual must feel in the enjoyment of his rights under a tenure of his own selection; He holds them hot by the uncertain; dictum of an arbitrary potentate or privileged order. of men, but by the virtue of ajiigh instrument, the standard of all rule and law, adopted by the special servants' of the people and - Clearly defined, approved ar.d ratified by a" whole community.- But wnat would it avail a people, fellow citi zens, though they embody in their constitution the wisest- provisions and the most' sal utarv doctrines, if they should be vvanting in -"the necessary firmness and patnotisnr to resoect and obey them! It is obvious that the ad van-, tages of such a system must rest uoon a faith ful compliance of all. parties 1 with, the terms of the compact. "If the people at large, and the different departments of government shall adhere with fidelity to its letter and its spirit j the nation will Je uble to preserve its freedom, happiness and independence. ; But if, on the contrary, cither the people or the public functionaries, unmindful of their obligations toils authority, shall suffer themselves tabo hurried by the violence of baneful passions, or be seduced by the selfish suggestions of a temporary and narrow. minded policy into a violation of its solemn injunctions, the inevitable consequences will be, the Joss of public credit, tbo destruction of private confidence, and the sub version ot all order,: morality and safety; now important it is, then, to shield and protect the sacred charter pfour liberties, alike from all encroach mentsV. whether made bv the dm pie them3elves,'or by those entrusted with official stations.
