He briefly stated the great importance of the contemplated road, which is intended to connect with a road from .Montgomery, in Alabama, and will pass through the very heait of the cotton country. Mr Niles offered some amendments de signed to defeat the objects of the bill, but they were voted down. Some further debalo ensued, and after slight modification, the bill was passed ayes 28, noes 8.
