As this bill has already passed the House, they have

- The bill proposes to restrict the rates of charge both
for passengers and freight on all the railroads in this
State, to the limit prescribed in the charter of the
Georgia Railroad Company, "viz: Five cents per mile
for passengers, and fifty ceuta per hundred pounds
for every hundred miles, without regard to the char
ters of these roads, which are not controlled by such
provisions. It seeks to prohibit them from charging
.‘-.torage upon goods deposited with them, except upon
certain conditions: to prevent-them from the free use
of their cars and roiling stock, by farming or letting
them out at their pleasure; and finally, imposes heavy
penalties upon their officers for the violation of any of
Upon examination of the charters of the various
roads which have been established in the State, it will
be found that tbs Legislature has, but in few instances,
sought to control their action in these particulars.
Satisfied with throwing such safeguards around the
interests of the public, as would protect them from
imposition and oppression, it has left these corpora
tions free end unembarrassed in their management,
assured, as is manifested by the results, that they
would be so carried on sa to insure the rapid advance
ment of tbe material interests of the State.-
When these roads were incorporated, and their
charters accepted, they constituted formal valid con
tracts with the State, and the franchises thereby
granted could not be altered or recalled at tbe will of
the Legislature. The laws of the State provide the
most ample remedies for an abuBe of their privileges,
which must be pursued in the courts, and in that tri
bunal their chartered-rights can alone be invaded, by-
proof of auch acta on the part of the corporation as
would work a forfeiture of them. If any of them
have exceeded the just limits of their rights, an appeal
to the court will redress the wrong, but both court and
Legislature are powerless to affect those which are not
By the solemn act of the Legislature, in granting
these charters, the corporators acquired distinct vested
rights, which are protected by the constitution. Their
mosey was invested, and their roads constructed on
the faith of them, and the State became bound to
maintain, not to infringe them. Of these rights, none
were more important, none more valuable, than the
right to uso their own property as their own judgments
might dictate; and to regulate their rates of transpor
tation and travel as should best subserve the interests
of the corporators.
For the Legislature now to intervene and assume
the right to control, as this biU proposes, the use and
management of their own cars, and to regulate the
rates of fare and freight and storage would be, in the
opinion of the committee, an act directly impairing
the obligation of the contract, and therefore obnox
ious to the 14th section of the 1st article of the Consti
tution. if it has the right to compel them all to con
form to the rates prescribed for the Georgia Railroad,
it would be equally in its power to reduce them to s
point at which they would be compelled to cease their
operations; for th* right once conceded, there remains
nothing to restrain its exercise. If to this right be
superadded tbe right to designate as a crime a de
parture from these terms, and to impose heavy penal
ties upon the officers of the roads, their charters be
come worthless, and these institutions, hitherto so
illustrative of the enterprise of the State, and so con
ducive to the material prosperity, must sink under
tbe burdens which may be imposed npon them.
But apart from the constitutional objection, tbe
committee are impreased with the belief, that snch a
law would be unjust to these roads st the present time
and most prejudicial to the commercial and agricul
tural intereats of the .State at large.
It would be unjust, because these roads have suf
fered moat severely by the continuance and result of
the war which has just closed. All of them have been
most seriously injured, by the incessant demands for
transportation, involving a ruinous use of their rolling
stock, and destructive wear and tear of their tracka.
borne have been totaVly destroyed, and are now
struggling to resuscitate themselves. Every article
necessary for their reconstruction and restoration
has enhanced enormously in value. Iron, which
before the war, was obtained at forty to fifty
dollars per ton, now costs ninety ; spikes which could
be purchased at five cents per pound, now demand
fifteen, whilst lumber, oil, machinery, and skilled
labor, have proportionally increased in value. The
absence from the State during the war, of most of
these essential elements to the muintainance of the
roads, rendered it impossible for such ol them as have
not been destroyed to keep themselves ni repair.
Every day was increasing the damage, and when the
great struggle ended, and opportunities for supplying
their want, presented themselves, they were without
available means. Their treasuries were indeed fuU
of Confederate and State securities and notes, but the
' unfortunate issue of tbe contest, and the action of the
Convention, annihilated them at one blow.
To repair these damages, and to offer facilities to the
public, for locomotion and transportation, they were
compeUed by a necessity over which they had no con
trol, to increase their rates, but aa far aa tbe commit
tee are informed, snch increase has not greatly ex
ceeded, except in a few instances, a price which would
make tbe depreciated currency equal to the usual cost
in gold and silver.
If those roads which were only partially injured,
have been forced, for self preservation, to pursue this
course, how much stronger is the esse presented by
those which have been totally destroyed, and what
gross injustice would be done by restricting them to
the prices of a time of peace J ”
That it would be unwise and most injurious to the
public at large, will appear from a casual consideration
of the consequences. Whilst a few only of the roada
have been limited in their rates, by their charters, it
it is a matter of notoriety, that all of them anterior to
the war, fixed their charges at a point much below
these Lffnita, and so graduated their prices as to im
pose the lowest possible rates upon those articles of
prime necessity to the people, as bacon, flour, corn
and salt, while articles of luxury or of greater market
value were properly made to bear a higher tariff. By
this means the cost has been equalized, the people have
been accommodated, and tbe roads have lived and
thriven. Corn has been transported at a cost of five
cents per bushel fur every hundred miles, flour at
thirty cents per barrel, and bacon and salt at almost
equality nominal rates, and thus the wants of the cum
monity have been supplied, and their necessities re
lived. Confine them to the fixed rates proposed, and
♦he system of graduation will be discontinued, and
these articles of consumption must and will inevitably
be placed upon the same footing with articles of lux
ury, and the cost of transportation so increased as to
make it burdensome to the public, or compel them to a
consumption inadequate to their wants. A bushel of
corn would than cost twenty-eight cents per hundred
miles instead of five. A barrel of flour one dollar In
stead of thirty cents, bacon filty cents per hundred
pounds Instead of fifteen, and sMt one dollar and up
wards per sack for the same distance, instead of twen
ty cents, and thus the consumer who Rves at a dis
tance from the place of production will be forced to
pay almost as much In freight is the original value cf
Such a result would be detrimental at all times; it
would be doubly disastrous in the present condition
of the country, when its wants are multiplied and its
means of supplying them so diminished; yet such
would be the inevitable consequence of the policy in
dicated by the bill.
That the expense of travel and transportation, may
have been greater than a period of flowing prosperity
would justify, is apparent to the committee, but it lias
been Induced by the excessive demand upon the few
roads which have been in operation, and the necessity
for means to relieve their exhaustion, and enable them
to respond to that demand; and it is an evil which is
daily correcting itself by the gradual bnt steady com
pletion of those which are being rebuilt, and which
are presenting additional facilities to the public; a re
sult which may be relied on to reduce the prices com
plained of, by the earnest and active competition of
rival routes, a remedy far more certain and effectual,
than unwise legislation would supply.
In view of all these facts, the committee are of the
opinion that the bill ia not only unconstitutional, but
that it would fail to accomplish the purposes designed,
and they therefore recommend that It do not pass.
A11 of which ia respectfully submitted.

Washington, Feb. 17.—House.—Speeches
order of the day.
Mr. Cook of Illinois, argued that the power of recog- ’
nizing the aeceded States as being in the Union rested
with Congress. When the military power can rarely
be withdrawn and these States remain peaceable tn
the Union, of their own accord and not by foree, and
the Union men and fresdmen do not require a mili
tary force to protect them, civil government should be
recognized, but uo military power could set aside the
. enactment and judicial decisions of a State full in the
Union. While these acts were necessary the Southern
States should not be recognized.
Mr. Lawrence offered (befollowing:
Keaolvetl, That it is tbs deliberate sense of the House
thst the condition of the rebel States fuUy justifies the
President in maintaining the suspension of the writ
of habeas corpus in those States, and that he is enti
tled to the thanks of the nation for employing the war
power for the protection of Union oitizeue and the
freedmen in those States.
Lawrence said in the course of his remarks it would
depend on the people of rebel States when reconstruc
tion would be complete; it would be complete when
loyalty returns, when the Government is' so practica
ble ae to secure obedience to law with security for the
future assured, then can reconstruction be completed.

Washington, Feb. 17.—Mr. Henry Rlvea Pollard

paper lor the expression ot disloyal sentiments, yes
terday visited Gen. Grant, before whom he laid his
grievances and of whom ha asked permission to re
sume the publication of his paper, uen. Grant, after
listening to Pollard’s representations, quietly inform
ed him that he would receive any written communi
cation addressed to him from Richmond, but that he
could not at present give his decision iu the matter.
The Buppression of the Examiner waa done iu pur
suance of positive orders from Geu. Grant, who an
nounces his intention of suppressing aU newspapers
in the South which have the audacity to come out in
similar |k>M denunqiafrons of the Government.
Gen. R. E. Lee was examined this forenoon by the
Joint Committee on Reconstruction.
The diplomatic corps are indignant over Mr. Ban
croft's oration, especially the Austrian and British
Ministers. The latter retracted his acception of an
iuvitation to dinner at the house of a Congressman,
as soon as he heard that the dinu'er was given iu honor
of Mr. Bancroft.
The story that Mr. Romero. Mexican Minister, was
refused admission to the Bancroft eulogy, and weut
away indignant, is explained. Mr. Romero presented
UimBelf at the main entrance to the haU shortly before
the exerciees commenced, when he discovered that he
had neglected to bring his letter of invitation. The
door-keeper, iu obeying positive instructions from the
committee, could not admit him without the ticket.
Romero appealed to Senator Foote, Chairman of the
Committee, who just then approached the door with
the President on his arm. Senator Foote could not
atteud to it then, and passed on. Romero then de
parted, and the Senator Bought him when the Presi
dent was seated but could not find him.
