Bloomington Indiana Tribune (Newspaper) - February 9, 1850, Bloomington, Indiana Tlle t iibiine1? l 0 o m i m x t o n sati Iuda mor Xii feb. 0. Cell map Ostach. In anti her column will be found a Doc Naoni on cheap postage Wii i the Forn of a Peuvion la he signed by Ilie people to be presented to ingress. I his is a subject that deeply us All. To think however that a uni a unit postage of cents on All single letters to a ill distances and 10 cents where the letter weighs Over Liaf an ounce would he a better o Reform than the one asked for in this petition. A of Iago on newspapers and periodicals so Nield be greatly reduced. And there is at present a very unjust Dii Serenco ill Ade bet Etmo newspapers and periodicals. News a ers Are allowed to Exchange Uii i Sacii other free of Osage but if the publisher of a Small periodical pamphlet wishes to Exchange with any a no he is compelled to pay the postage on All his excl Anges wide tier they be news apers or periodicals. It is admitted on All sides that the Strong a bulwarks of our National defense is the Ini Eill Genic Oftelie peo Jile and hence the importance of the Universal diff usion of Correct information among the masses. Ineve papers and tire the messengers of Light and information to the multitude. And hence the postage it hould to reduced to the very lowest i Ive cents seems Low enough in All conscience for a half ounce letter from new York to Gilloon Kington and we think the Popio will be fully satisfied with ii. Let All exchanges Between news apers and periodical pamphlets a old magazines go free of postage. And let newspapers and periodicals which do not Eidi Over an ounce circulate without Cost Wii Liin a radius of Miles from the place of publication and when they go beyond that Dis Lance one cent on newspapers to any part of the a nixed on periodicals ii weigh ing Over an ounce. 2 cents Ami for heaver Berio Diguls and magazines in proportion. Some such postal Reform As this would have a very salutary elect on the genial in Lunce of knowledge among the masses of the people Ami we believe that he who can bring about such a Reform will Enri in his name among the benefactors of Mankind. The Sim kits of new York. On our first Page will be found another lengthy article from the York Tribune w hich in connection w Ith w hat we have published before will give the Reader a pretty full history of this very strange Altair. We Are Sci v Mudi pleased with the comments of the Tri Liuch on the Book which he we Are fre i to admit that the whole of fur i it pass iii Skui and perhaps cannot be Accuu Mcd for upon the ground of any Kuuva Law either of nature or Rasca Lity yet we Are not willing to admit any communication to be True though it a hinted come from the Quot land of souls Quot which contradicts the theology of the Bible. We Ilo not doubt that the strange i does Are Lizard by the Good people of Rochester and Auburn but if they Are spirits Why Are they heard in that locality und no where Elsein spirits certainly have As much Power to conf verse with mortals in looming Toni As Illey have in Rochester Why then do they not do it we shall not now account for these sounds particularly but we will venture a suggestion or two. Rochester is some eighty Miles from the Falls of the Niagara. The tremendous fall of the water produces a concussion in the atmosphere which is perfectly deafening in the neighbourhood and to the distance of Many Miles How far 1 know not the sound of a still evening or when the air is favourable is Hoard in a Low Wail or Low sound of Many voices in the distance. We Are not certain but that it might be heard even to ii Ochester. An Obj Genile Maji who once lived in the Vicinity of the Falls informs us that he has often heard the phenomenon of the rap let in Here ascribed to disembodied spirits and he understands it to be the concussion of the atmosphere produced by Tho Waterfall. What say Vuu or. New York Tribune to this. Rui even admitting that these sounds Are made by the departed so qirits to must still be allowed to object to to Weir theology. It is too much like the humic a a a a in re of a. J. Davis who we believe is now generally believed to to an impostor. But Tho Bible leaches us to to the spirits which we Are disposed to do. And again John says Quot beloved believe not every we believe that Whoso who profess to give us the teachings of Icse spirits Are All under the in Lucico of the Davis revelations and of course sceptics in the theology of the Bible. This however May be incorrect and to shall therefore Wail for Fibril ice Dovolou Creots. If we. Have a commom cation from our Wab Ivington correspondent but it was received too late for this week. Ii will appear ill our . Rail Road matters. In last week s Tribune we published the Charier of the Quot White River Railroad company the Tali Sec. Of said Charier provides that the said Quot rail Road company shall be authorized to connect their said Road with any rail Road or Linail roads by contract with such other connecting Road now this while Oiiver rail Road is to run from Bloomington to Vincennes by Way of our trip. When editors travel we believe it is expected that they will give a sketch of their wanderings if not for the edification of their readers for their amusement. It was owing we suppose to the prevalence of thi custom that the b Hoys at the Tribune office called upon our neighbor of the Herald for a sketch of his travels two weeks ago. Well we have been out too and we will Sui Bloomfeld. And the object of this Section is Mit to he Rule we impose upon others. To left to give the com any Power to connect with the Home about the Middle of january and passing Dolu Intis Nashville and Bloomington Road through Clu port we continued our journey to at this . This is ail right let these Sec Cloverdale n Village in Putnam county ten Miles Lions be made and by contract connected to South of Greencastle. This is a very Plom Satin Geilier. So that the same cars will run Over the and flourishing Little Village of some two or Wlizlo line from Oln bus to Vincennes and three a unfired inhabitants we suppose and is eventually from \ inc Ennis to Cincinnati by i rapidly improving Way of Greensburg and we have a very important link in the great Ohio and Mississippi rail Road Quot and we would suggest that arrangements should be made at once to have it surveyed i arly in the siring the c. N. Amp b. Road will be surveyed by an experienced i a iii Eer. And we would suggest that the Quot White River company Quot make an arranged Lenl to have the Survey continued West to Vincennes. Pm the Eop e of Reeno and Knox go to work in g did Earnest. Now is the time. Such a move on their part As they Are perfectly Able to make would have a mighty influence on the whole line. It Wou lil inspire the people with Confidence in the value of the Enterprise and make them willing to put their shoulders to the wheel. To should like to hear from Iho Vincennes the i methodist and christians both have Church houses in the place and the Mission Ary baptists have one in then mediate Vicinity. They have obtained an act of incorporation for a Seminary of learning to be called the Quot Cloverdale s in Inary and they Ore going on with commendable Energy to raise the Furi Fis. And bin old at once. A. T. Mccoy esq., has donated a Beautiful lot of ground As a site to build on. There is also an excellent steam Sawmill in full operation in the place belong ing to messes. 1. Nicoson and j. Sandy. This a Fine farming District and Able of course to make Cloverdale a Good town. And we May also mention that it is expected that the new Albany and Salem rail Road will be extended through Cloverdale to j in View of , real estate has already taken a considerable Rise. There was a Sale of town i Idi lir Ami was uni Sun on the ,. ,.a at r a i r. I i lots the other Day m Mccoy s addition Lollo shall the Survey be continued and arrange ments made to connect the two lines immedi lately Small. Pox in Cincinnati. A gentleman in Cincinnati writing to a Friend ill this place under Date of 27ih ult. Says Quot our City at resent is and has been unik Rii oing another visitation of epidemic not however of Quot a Lio lera but of that most loathsome Listia get the Quot Small nox Quot Manv have Verdale and the lots averaged Over 8-14 each. J also visited Putnamville and manhat Tan on the National Road and was surprised j to find them the same Little villages that they i were some Tenor twelve years ago. Indeed they seem rather to have gone Back. The houses present rather a dilapidated condition. There is but Little business done at either of those Points. Imol of Tho Lime we spent at Cloverdale . And a Ureal proportion of those who have j. Jujj a a was raining and extremely Muddy. Considered themselves protected by vaccine if i a i,., \ ,. Lueha Noi there lore As much enjoyment As Hon. An Ltd by iia ving had the Iise Aso once have i when expo Seil to it taken a Milder form of it to should otherwise. But a Little circumstance occurred while we were at this Point which was very interesting to All concerned. It was this or. I. A. Hosier of Gosport having become tired of the Monotony of old Bache Leistn and having found a Blo Onnig girl in the person of miss Ellen Hudson of Gosport who was willing to make him Happy he took her in his buggy and accompanied by or. E. B. Lemon and a lady they came to Cloverdale and were joined together in Matrimony by or. Perry m. Blankinship who was with to. Place and happiness attend Rhein through life. I. E. Rii Rioli l. It is now thought to be abating and or. Hill thinks and retry justly Loo no doubt that it is because there Are no More Heie who Are susceptible lit contract it be Ilia As ii May i Jugh have had it if we arc to judge i y the Quot signs we see hanging out or aria Ehtel to about one third of All you meet in the Street. I really have never seen so Many in Oiley faces among Rny act Quaini Ancus the disease is so Reading All Over the country and especially on the River and All Iho great thorough fares. How soon it May be in our midst no one can Tell. Immediate preparation should be made for the reception of that tearful Scourge. Lei All be vaccinated at once even those w to have been vaccinated before would do Well to have it put in again. If it does not take elect it is evidence that Tho old vac Cir Avion is Good and if it does Leke elect then it proves that the patient was not out of danger and of course stood in need of it. Some who have once been vaccinated May take the Small pox when exposed to it but As a general thing we have the testimony of some of the Best physicians to prove that it is a valuable Sai e guard. And even where persons have taken the disease after having been vaccinated it has been in a Milder easily managed. Let no Lime therefore be Losi in providing for the unwelcome visitor. We suppose that any of Tho physicians in town can furnish vaccine Mailer and put ii into the Arm too if Reid tired. Annexation. A the annexation of Canada is now the All engrossing theme in that country. And it is said that the ministry of England have Deto mint d to give up Canada believing that they will lose it any How Hoy have wisely come to the conclusion that her majesty s North american provinces Are like the Indian s gun cml store than Lilicy conic to. Whether this be so or not we have no doubt the Canadas will to annexed to the Union before Many years. The people Are emigrating to the United states and it is Sun posed that in 12 no Jeths if the annexation Moui Zient proves a failure one tenth of the entire population of the Canadas will have come to the United Stales. Of conk a amp Davis will continue to sell off their Stock of g ods at Cost this week and next. Let All who desire to buy goods cheaper than they can to bought at retail in this place or any where else in this state Call and examine their Stock As they May never enjoy such an Opportunity again.

Many of its doctrines Are now and startling but presented with make ability. tuesday morning a dense smoke was seen issuing from a Frame building belonging to our fellow citizen David Bat Merton. The building was occupied by some Law students. It is supposed to have caught fire front the stove. Before it was discovered the fire had made such headway that it required a mighty Effort to Check its fury. The building stood within a few Yards of or. Batterton s dwelling House which would have been placed in great peril if the fire had not been checked Quot. One of the Youngmen and the female part of the family carried out All the goods from the burning House and had thrown a vast Quantity of water on the fire before help arrived As or. B. Lives a Little out of town and was at his shop in town when the fire broke out. But no sooner was the alarm Given than hundreds of men pushed to the scene and in a few minutes the fire was arrested.
