RESOLUTIONS.

by the

RESOLUTION requesting the legislature of the

state of New York to abolish the canal tolls on pig and bar lead.

WHEREAS, the lead manufactured in Wisconsin, estimated by the Governor, in his message, to have amounted, during the past year, to twenty million pounds, is subject to pay a toll to the state of New York, upon its passage through the Erie canal, which furnishes one reason why so much is sent to the eastern market

way of New Orleans, to the detriment of the commerce of our lakes, and the trade of the interior of the state of New York; therefore,

Resolved, by the Council and House of Representatives of the Territory of Wisconsin:

That the legislature of the state of New York be requested to abolish all toll imposed by the laws or canal regulations of that state, upon the transportation of pig and bar lead through the Erie 'canal on its passage eastward.

Resolved, That the Governor of this Territory be requested to transmit a copy of the foregoing preamble and resolution to the governor of the state of New York, with a request that he communicate the same to the legislature of that state.

APPROVED, January 21, 1842.

PREAMBLE AND RESOLUTIONS relative

to the survey of the public lands north of the Wisconsin and Neenah (or Fox) rivers.

WHEREAS, a large portion of the land in this Territory, to which the Indian title has been extinguished, lying west of the

Fox and Wisconsin rivers, still remains unsurveyed; and whereas, by the present pre-emption law of the United States, the settlers on unsurveyed lands are debarred any participation in the benefits it confers, thus materially retarding the settlement and improvement of a valuable frontier country; and whereas, the interests of the general government, as well as of the citizens of this Territory, demand the speedy settlement of all the public lands within our limits; therefore,

Resolved, by the Council and House of Representatives of the Territory of Wisconsin :

That the Hon. Henry Dodge, delegate in Congress, is hereby requested to solicit from Congress, at its present session, an appropriation sufficient to ensure the speedy survey of all the lands in this Territory, west of the Wisconsin and Fox rivers, to which the Indian title has been extinguished.

Resolved, That the Governor be requested to transmit copies of the above preamble and resolution to the Hon. H. Dodge, delegate, and to the presiding officer of each branch of Congress.

APPROVED, February 16, 1842.

RESOLUTION relative to procuring the Jour

nals of Congress and Public Documents for the Wisconsin library.

Resolved, (if the Council concur,) That Hon. Henry Dodge, the delegate to Congress from this Territory, be requested (and) to apply for and make all proper exertions to procure at Washington, free of expense to the Territory, one copy of the Journals of Congress, State Papers and Public Documents, from the several departments of the General Government, from the time of its organization up to the present time, and that the same be deposited in the Wisconsin library.

APPROVED, February 17, 1842.
