Bloomington Post (Newspaper) - July 22, 1836, Bloomington, Indiana
M a to no a Quot it a to Deais. a Vilalta my bait a a to 99, 189� com cum a Al aloft her a fun in of i Range and per Caliari com racer u drawing near to a Clove and at heretofore a been my Cullom i Purpova a the present Occa sign to give to the people of the state a Brief outline of the Burin ii Tram acted by it and pending before it. It Liat been a Seii ion of great interest novel in Iti character and incident and calculated to produce a Strong amp exciting action upon the body politic throughout the United state. Tiff surplus Revenue strange a it majr appear Hai been the Obot 4iacalt question of the Euion. The Lur Petua on hand a admitted by a re port of the Secretary of the Trei usury of the 9ih of june last to be upward of thirty three millions. Thi in the vault of the a polite bunk in withdrawn from circulation or it Cir a caution to All respect a subjected to the i cry Tion of Whoie institutions. Various plan have been proposed for getting Rio i of it auth a i tri Bulion among the state building Forti Oca. Tion on the a Board and Shim of War and the land Bill. These several schemes have had their advocate but until a late period of these ion the probability a that the whole urpiu8 would be expended in building fortification and hip of War and in arming them. The Friend of the land Bill were not however oppo de to a gradual increase of the nary and fortifications nor to appropriations much enlarged for these object bul they contended fora distribution of the proceed of the land a ale leaving the Revenue from All other source for the current expenditures of the government. I voted for the land Bill think the distribution it proposes the Best thai we in the new states can Ever Hope to get and believe that unless we get this we get nothing else valuable to us on that subject. Re it Duclion of Price and graduation have been in a successfully tried for ten or fifteen years. I have heretofore in letter be this Given my views in this matter and a Marad into to show the amount which thi Bill in 5 year Woi ild Divide to the state of a Indiana. Such however Hii been the great increase of Lanci sales of late and especially within the last year Tiit All my calculations have been left far on the Back ground. The receipts from the Public lands during the past year exceeded millions and there is Good reason to believe. That during the present year they will exceed Twenty Millioni. Tajc dividend to which Indiana would be entitled of the rum on hand the 97lh a an uary last is agreeably to h report of the committee on Public lands. Dl7,9is,Aad Ikui Litak snore than two Dahs of the sum which would have been distributed by the Bill. This is in my opinion better for a than building ships to rot in our docks and harbours before we shall Ever find Lis for them for we have at present Mere than Are Ever employed at tha same time. It is better too than building useless fortification which must be abandoned in a great measure to dilapidation after they Are Hill for i less we greatly increase our army we shall not have men enough to. Garrison them. It is believed by my Whoso opinion Are entitled to great re pet that the amount which would be dul Ribu cd by the land Bill in five year would be upward of $50,000,000. So that the surplus for distribution by the other Mode will be somewhere Between 50 and 40 Aai Liun. Tiie land Bill had Long been before the House of representatives having passed the Senate and no action upon it promis if a favourable result having been bad other of the surplus were prop sad. The prop Dian to Deposit in Tho state Traat Arlei the surplus which shall Haen Haas on the it St of Janaa by Neit Learl if be Mil Moos in the Traa Sarji of t m United Stet a has been adopted by Large Osaji orioles of both Howat and recalled tha Sanction of tha president. From 35 to 40 Mill Loal will in �11 probability be deposited a tlio4lmita Traa Moriei Tivadar that Lair. Oat Tia 4i�thb�hioa Oftle Sar Nosay by the land Bill would a Hava by better for my it tax by 10 per Fht. Ause by it Almy would Bava Roca Lead 10 pay of tit a loom r�eeif�4 fron Tim sales Baford ii i be any general div Sun would have taken treaty have take up the a Aichel. Or eident it iia i invt a been a Utimio place. By the other Bill no such adj have committed inane a murders and Vantage is Given to the new states this however can be better Ihu stilted by figure than in any other Way on the 97th of january lat agreeably to a report of the committee of the Public land of the Senate there were for i Lri Bulion a pro need by the land Bill 130,571,135 75. The dividend of Indiana out of this sum is $917,313,agreeably to the land Bill. Agreeably to the other Bill it is 10 per cent. Less. But the land Bill Dees Bot 4erminate on the fir to of january next a the other Bill Dee. I dial tributes the proceeds of the land sales till the 31st of december 1837. 10 or 16 millions in All probability after the other Bill will cease to operate 00 the recipes into he Treasury. I addition to to this the land Bill contained an appropriation of 115,000 Arrer of land in favour of the state of Indi Ann which if judicious selected it the new lands not yet brought into Market would have been Worth from three to $500,000. Taking thai these three items the difference in the amounts distributed under the 3 Bills the 10 per cent., and the 115,000 a Ere of land and it i a calculation. It Eri ciry Tibai a Indiana Between the a two Biln. Would exceed one million of dollars. The time however will soon come in which Titis whole matter will be toll in dollars and cents at the Treasury on the first of january next it will be known How much will be deposited in the tre Tsuriel under the Law Juana de and on the 31st d Membri 1837, it will be known Lions a much hat been received from the land sales n five previous years. Besides the Dir Ribu Lions under the let and Bill it final payments to in a a lates. By the other Hill the Money deposited in the stale Trei uries a a Jle to be re ailed whenever the Secretary of in Treasury shall determine that such recall is necessary fur the government such recall however is by no mean probable. The Law which has jus passed is Worth to the stale probably. More than a Phillion of Dollar. I voted for both Bill think the pro % visions of either better in All respects than the former condition of things and have Given my reason for prefer i g the land Bill. Had both Bill passed the land proceeds would has Tirol been Dittri build because that land Jim designate a particular fund and make a final disposition out it. Ill that event the other by would have merely regulated the deposits of the Turi ent Revenue for the time being in the local Bank. A Law has paed fixing the bout it Darie of Michigan and3miti�� a. M a a ate into the Union on condition that she Call a convention Ano modify her Constitution As the Law pre Crohe. Thi fixes the Boundary Between Michigan and Ohio so Asik include within the state of Ohio the North Cape of the Maumee Bay and of Coure the Aasi Ern outlet of the Wahyah and Erie canal its Points of u lion with the like. It recognize a Alao the Northern Boundary of it Indianu is fixed and established by our constr tuition and puts to rest the prevention of Michigan to a portion of our Terri Lory in the North Michigan a ill then on compliance with the require be Antillon to seats for her senators and Eproso native in the next session of Congress a Law has also passed for the admission of Arkansas As a state of the Union. The Seminole War in Florida has not yet been brought to a close. It has probably been Moro disastrous considering the number of India i engaged. And tha Force opposed to them Tolian any India War to Whiteb the country has Ever Baen engaged. Tha Saml noles Ara a Sim ii Triba of Lolane surrounded by tie Gulf and Atlantic coasts on the South and to and of Geprgia and Alaba Osa on tha non Thev inhabit the swamp and Isar mocks Aud Nacea Stibla Sims of the country and Bava kept in Clack and eluded tha Pursuit of armies which in the open Field could have Consul in and the in an hour. They Ara yet a subdued having Laid the country waste Frois tha Point of Flor a and St. Augustina to Tallabas aaa. Thay Wera bound by Traat a to a i Grau Watt of the Mew Lupul bul in a Tad of fulfil lid tit a Iasom of will probably be nearly before they submit. A portion oath Creel of Alabama and Georgia encouraged no doubt by the successes of the seminoles have also become hostile Hava massacred All within their reach broken up and Laid waste a Large District of county and attempted to some extent a Union and concert with the seism Violes. A fearful retribution. Bow Ever awaits them unless prevented by speedy and entire submission. They Bava no in accessible country in which to bide themselves. These things will bait an the removal of All the Southern indians to the districts of country prepared for them. West of the Mississippi River. The cherokees have recently ceded the residue of their country and will remove. Ith Tever Fate May wait them la beyond the Mississippi it is obvious and certain that surrounded As they Are by the Whites and refusing to adopt the pursuits of civilized life the remnants of those tribes cannot exist where they Are. A portion of the army under the command of general Gaines is employed on our Southern Border with nor Row a ate and of protecting the frontiers of Arkansas and Louisiana from the indians to the event of their being end aged in the War Between Texas and met Xico. Thia army of observation a upon the Sabine and Ita presence has no doubt preserved peace within our limit. The Indiana do not appear to have engaged to any co Haider a beef cent to the texan War Thole a hot Fiat War Haa raged with extern int a g fury Between the Dellige re Titi. That War it is believed is now at m end. The army of Texas has re Henlly achieved a splendid and in the a Pinion of Many a decisive victim airy a ver the armies of Mexico. The pow r of Mexico if at this time entirely a Tinct in Texas her armies Are Dos it erased or Annahi baled and Santa an la her civil As Well As military chief is a prisoner of War. This must be it it Rali it Ying to the friends of civil and religious Liberty every where and whatever May be the moral and Point ical complexion of Texas hereafter much will have been gained by the achievement of her Independence. The population of these United slates Tust Preponderate there and their Nati Luliona fill be assign plated to those if our own government. The army of the United states was organized at the close of the Lale War with England to consist of ten Tho ii land men. It was reduced by the acl of 1831 to six thousand and since that Date it Haa been considerably Iii reas de. Ill 1i59x, a bmlv�>l<f., it a ant mud a riflemen was added which in 1833, was changed a a regiment of dragoons. At the recent session a Oiher regiment of dragoons has been authorized by Law and it is in contemplation to increase the rank and file of the artillery and infantry. Various causes h4ve combined to produce shia Iii create of aii Ilary Force at the Prea ent time Ucb a the War in Florida the rising of the creeks the Strong detachment necessary u be kept up on the Sabine and our extensive Frontier from Mackinaw to Texas. This Frontier is rendered doubly in portent bar tha location of tha Many tribe a Lodiane of Tho frontiers of Missouri and Arkansas and indeed upon the whole line. This location of the indians and our existing treaties with then by which we Guaran tee then peace among Vliem salves and Protection against the wandering tribes further West has created the necessity for Dragoon services by it it will greatly increase our Power and control Over them.

The sum for the Road in Ohio it $300,000 that fur Indiana $350, 000 mild Lor Illinois $100,000. Muse difficulty and delay than usual hereto fore have been experienced in thi matter and it is Mitch to be regretted thai so much of the working season will have passed by before operations upon it can be commenced. A Bill api it to plating $50,000 for the improvement of the Wabash rivet passed the Senate at an Early period of the session but Bat not it been acted on by the House. An appropriation of $35,000, for a Harbor at Michigan City Lii is passed both houses and an acid tonal appropriation for a Lif he he use at that place Hpe Alm i a louisvi11eand Portland canal Bill Haa passed the Senate and is before the House.
