Foote, authorizing the commissioners ol the land office to sell the lands donated to this state, by the Holland land company* and to appoint an agent to prosecute for trespasses on said land. Mr. Tleacocli said that as the United States had..ap­ pointed engineers to survey the Allegany rivqr, preparatory to taking measures to improve the navigation thereof, it woqlt be advisable tO pdatpone the salcoftheSe lands; Forin case of such improvements, they would be much more valuable than they are now, Mr. Speaker wasrin fa­ vour of the bill, but he thought the pur­ chasers ought to be required.to pay down 0 «e half of the purchase money. Mr. Foote accorded with the Speaker, hot he considered that :fuch provision ought to be contined'to firnher lands, as a conside­ rable portion o f foe trac t is land o f poor quality and upt valuable, and i t would be an object for the state to get such Jaftd settled. Mr. Speiifcer offered an amend-! ment to the bill requiring all purchasers of land to pay* down fifty per cent, of the purchase money.

His pre- sencO in S t. Petersburgh was momentari­ ly expected, and the day of. his arrival Was to be the only suspension of that public-mourning which had been ordered for the deceased Monarch.
