Mr. Casey, from the same committee, to whom was referred the petition of sundry inhabitants of Dallas country, respecting the state road from Cahawba to Line Creek, Reported, that they have had the same under consideration, and after giving the subject mature deliberation they deem it inexpedient to interfere with said road, or make any alteration, as there are counter petitions to continue said road its present route; they would recommend that the old road be kept open, and that the county court of Dallas apportion hands to work on both roads; the old road being convenient in the summer season, but in the winter obstructed by high water & inundation, and rendered frequently impassable; the state road leading a different route not being subject to such obstructions at any season of the year: therefore, Resolved, That it is inexpedient to interfere with the new State Road, or change the route thereof, so far as it runs in Dallas county: which was concurred in.

Mr. Shackleford, from the committee on inland navigation, to whom was referred the bill, to be entitled “An act appointing commissioners to improve the navigation of the Tennessee River,” Reported, that inasmuch as an investment has been made of the three per cent. funds in the blank of the state of Alabama, and as a large portion of this fund must necessarily be consumed to meet the object of the bill, they are of opinion that it is inexpedient to pass the bill at this time.

Mr. Shackleford moved that the Senate concur in said report; which was lost- Yeas 9.  Nays 9.

Mr. Murphy, from the joint committee of both Houses to whom was referred the memorial of Edward G. Terrell and John D. Terrell, proposing to work the salt springs of this state by an improved machinery for the manufacture of salt, and to obtain a loan for that purpose, reported.

That they have examined the machinery, and find it to exhibit a happy combination of principles which experience has already separately tested

 


119

in other applications, and which it is hoped will prove advantageous to the investors and useful to their county.  The committee feel restrained on the subject by the limits to which it is proper that their report should be confined; but beg leave to mention, that the principal improvement consists in a peculiar combination of the air furnace and cylindrical boilers supplied by a convenient application of the force pump.  The cylindrical boilers connected with this air furnace, submit their whole surface to the action of heat, which by the structure of the furnace is greatly economized; and the boilers being open at each end afford an easy transmission of heat to the water which is to be evaporated.  It is worthy of notice, that the Salt Springs belonging to this state, cannot be of much benefit in time of peace, without an improvement in the usual process of making sale; but should the process be rendered more expeditions, and less expensive this public property would, at all times more valuable; and in times of war a resource of the utmost importance.

The committee were impress with these views, and the general policy of improving that property.  The present time however, was deemed unfavorable to engage in the undertaking suggested by the memorialists.  The improvement is considered valuable, and making due allowance for the operation of causes which frequently disappoint human invention, likely to answer the expectation of the inventors.  Should this prove to be the case they will be numbered among the benefactors of their country.

The propositions made to the state were deemed reasonable & give evidence of an honorable pursuit of private interest connected with liberal views of public utility.  The situation of the treasury, and the funds of the state being diverted into another public channel, will render it inexpedient at this time to make the loan requires; your committee, therefore, recommend that the subject be postponed until the next session of the General Assembly, which was concurred in.

Mr. Murphy, from the special committee, to whom was referred the memorial of the General Assembly of the state of Alabama, to the Congress of the United States, reported the same without amendment.  Ordered, to be engrossed for a third reading on to-morrow.

Mr. Murphy from the special committee, to whom was committed the bill to be entitled, an act to lay a tax on all slaves introduced into this state for the purpose of sale or traffic, reported the same without amendment.  Ordered, That the bill lie on the table.

Mr. Moore, from the special committee to whom was referred the bill, entitled an act in relation to the 16th sections, reported the same as amended; which was concurred in.

Ordered, That the bill be engrossed for a third reading to-morrow.

Mr. Moore, from the special committee, to whom was referred the petition of Peter Wyatt, reported a bill to be entitled an act to provide for the payment in part of slaves executed in this state; which was read, and, ordered to a second reading on to-morrow.
