Just and well tried confidence in

mean of the eminent men who
have conducted and are conduct
ing the affairs of this company
has formed the controlling, the

Mr. Villard, and to you, Governor J

for support, this day crowns your

plaud your triumph.
I cannot sta' your train to un
fold the manifold qualities in tho
management of this enterprise,
which deserves illustration, but I
may insist for a moment upon a
few principal traits. I cannot
discover that there has ever been
engrafted upon this enterprise any
construction oompairy to suck the
prosperity that belongs to the or-

ning to the end the enterprise has
not received a uonar irom the
public funds. I find no fair
ground for cavil at the land grants
of the government along the zouto,
as improvident or showing no ad
equate return or value either to
the treasury or to expectant set
tiers on the public domain. Even
li we looK at the government m
the mere light ol a private pro
prietor, who will not himself incur
the expenses and the risks of
opening communication between
his unpeopled wilderness and the
laud seeking population, we find
the government without a dollar
of outlay, made more than whole
for the lands it has parted with by
the enhanced selling value of its
whole domain. But when we con
sider that the future settlers on
the company's lands, as well as in
the reserved public lands.forever
contribute to the taxpaying wealth
of the people, and the strength and
power of the nation, we see that
there is no sensible analogy be
tween the interest of a private
person in the ownership of land,
and that of the government as an
administrator, for the general wel
fare of the public domain. And
finally, the settlers who will follow
vour track, and at once find their
frugal means and farm products
at no disadvantage from distance
or isolation from market; but on a
level with all the world, will easily
understand that but for the wise
liberality of the government in the
matter of railroad communication.

iur. rresment and gentlemen,
the magnitude and rapidity of tho
recent strides of our country's pro
gress in material development,
dwarf and belittle the steps in our
advancement which we used to
consider with complacency and
admiration. Less than forty years
ago, as lately as the year 1847, in
the little state of New Hampshire,
the energj' of its people, allied
with the wealth of Boston, had
pushed their northern railroad
over the narrow ridges of high-
Lands whlch diyi(e th(J
bottom lands of the Merrimac from
the wider valle' of the Connecti
cut. The opening of this section
of the road, from Franklin to Graf
ton, was an occasion of great exul
tation, and a distinguished com
pany of the solid men of Boston
had come up from that city, in a
forenoon, to meet the gathered
citizens of New Hampshire in a
grand celebration. The roid tra
versed the farm of Mr. "Webster,
and he took part in the pride and
pomp of the occasion. Magnify
ing, as an orator should, the
greatness of this triumph over the
obstacles which nature had inter
, , t; d
y , J
and portraying the advantages
which were to flow from it, with
out the least sense of hyperbole,
he exclaims, "Fellow citizens, can
we without wonder consider where
we are and what has brought us
here?" How vast all the dimen
sions and proportions of the com
pleted enterprise we now applaud,
seen by the side of the achieve
ment which the great orator and
statesman of our countrv thus
nrniullv commemorated, to these
wondcr. This last achievement of
