Mr. Laughlin from the committee on federal relations made the following report, to wit:

The committee on federal relations, to whom has been referred the subject of the vacant lands lying south and west of the congressional reservation line, have had the matters to them under consideration and beg leave to report, that they have deemed it necessary to go into a historical detail of the grounds upon which this state predicates her claims to the right of disposing of the vacant lands in question, and of perfecting titles to the same. The grounds of this reasonable claim have been frequently presented to congress in memorials and resolutions passed by the General Assembly. In the year 1923, her claim was assserted and explained in an able reports and resolution of instructions to the Tennessee Delegation in congress, drafted and reported by the present Governor of this State then a member of the legislature; and at various times since that date; and lastly in a memorial and resolutions passed by the General Assembly on the 5th of Jan. 1839, communicated to our delegation in Congress, and by them laid before that body. Being fully impressed with the justice of the claim asserted, and of the meritorious claims of the occupying claimants, by whom a considerable portion of their lands have been settled, your committee respectfully submit the following joint resolution, and unanimously recommend the passage of the same, to wit:

Resolved by the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee, That our Senators in Congress be instructed and our Representatives requested to use their most earnest exertions to procure the passage of a law authorizing the State of Tennessee to dispose of the vacant lands lying south and west of the Congressional reservation line, and that the Governor be required to transmit a copy of this resolution to each of said Senators and Representatives. All of which is respectfully submitted.

Signed, S. II. LAUGHLIN,
