If 1 recollect aright, they got very few
votes for the project.
Mr. LOWRY. The vote was light there
but commerce 14 an engine that never tires,
and it is back again, and ifTenosylvania
persists in its mad policy, she will build
that canal, she must :build it.' Pennsylva
nia can no more prevent commerce from
finding an outlet to the seaboard from the
West than she can , dam up Niagara with
a wheelharrow. -
Mr. NICHOLS. My recollection of the
bill spoken of by . the ' Senator, from Erie
was,thisl.ll - ring the rebellion the mouth
of the Mississippi wai blockaded•hy the
Sont - herp Confederacy, and such an out
let was d - esirable to pass the batteries at
New. Orleans. • ,
Mr. LOWRY. the gentleman is, ig
genions but that is all .I can say for him
in wallet:Lion. with this, subject. The
proposition to build a canal around the
falls 9f Niagara is older than the rebellion
and the narrow, suicidal policy of Penn
sylvania-Vile most eloquent tongue that
ever, spoke, or ever will speak in its defence ,
Pennsylvania stands today before the
world a blind giant, trying to commitsui
oide. this : wrong against our State must
smaken the people in the valley,s apd the

Sevator on my left (Mr. HALL) that t

When,l entered the Senate Chamber
this morning I had no ex'pectation of this
debate. My remarks, as you have readily
discovered,, were - not- prepared. - They
came warm from my heart. You have
heard me, patiently ; for my cause's sake,
and I.will close with ,a single remark. A
general railroad law "would form a more
perfect maims With these., States." The
cause of morality, commerce. and religion
ail plead that

opt be !eager disregarded in Pennsylvania.
