Would cause this change to to made it would immortalize his name amp it would be almost the Only Good act since the improvement business started it would be a great saving to the slate and we should have better Laws their would Noi be so Many sectional entrusts to be contending about for representatives dust Ricks would then be Large and mens views would be More general and the slate much benefited but this act might Benefit the people it would be too Good a deed for our improvement men to be guilty of for some of our spotters would have to Loose thur scats and none would be willing to give up that at this Money making period with them they would Jurrel about that worse than classification. Or. Governor i now will talk to you if you please sir 1 am n Plain Homespun old Man ther Foru you cannot act language very Nice from me but to talk to you in that style vulgar As it May be that will Best communicate my feelings and most relieve my mind not wishing my bluntness to offend any Man. The first thing or. Governor i would like to know if you calculate Rushing the Copic for the rent of their own farm by Way of Laxalt Iii Ven before we Are forced to sign away our whole right and title to our land and property now held in Trust for the payment of Money borrowed by our legislature without our a unsent and against our common welfare but or. Tio Vernor if their calculation was that Indiana was getting too full of fools and they wanted Money to make railroads and canals to run them off it this was their idea it might stand for u Good one for we have but Little else to spare bul i or. To Ovtia Rizor like Mioi the think they Mist the Mark there for they have undertaken so Many that they will not in Able to finish Tiven one for the exportation of fools for the Stato Legislatures Heto Foro and now in session we think could have shared a Good lot of them. But or. Governor to would like to know if you intend to enforce them unconstitutional Laws for taxing the i eople without their consent. Or. Governor i la Tell you what it is some of us hoosiers begin to think if we pay the debts of our own contracting and the entrust on Money of our own borrowing we have enough to do beside paying intrusion Money for a set of Fellows to waste and play the fool Over for or. Governor dont you see some of them Manifest their Folly there daily some in Long speaking that not to the purpose and various other ways Lime is Money to the people and that not a Little. From information there is 20u men or upwards at three dollars per Day this is enough to take the bread of a great Many children or. Governor when we think Over our doubly Morg used or a old situation and the imposition imposed on us from it it raises a spirit of nullification and to give you the word with the bark on As to talk it lit Home to Call it go and shouldering Bel Ike in behalf of the riles of Man and throw of oppression put on us by assumed Power or a ret of political drunkards they will not but come sober but wilfully keep so for Iho Sake of pecuniary views not curing Lor Gustr mint or peo a Jod or evil so they make Money. Or. Governor you must understand we do no Huss eak of those worthy patriots who wish to release the people from their doubly sold condition and state of oppression those guardians of the Rios of the people with which they were Entrup cd who would not sell us into bondage oppression and taxation no Way it could to fixed but would in a moment Delend their riles with the patriotic spirit of 76. Or. Governor to would Havo our to repeal those unconstitutional Laws and Juit that improvement business a few millions of dollars thrown away is better than a state of industrious people and their Psi mrily involved in a debt for the next 60 or an Lindred yours to come if the improvement system and this Money borrowing business a not atom it will involve the children yet unborn in the Horid deeds of simplicity done by som of their forefathers see to this Horid business be patriotic fathers like statesmen Sutler it nol to be done. Or. Gov. How do you think parents feel when we see our children involved in a state of hard taxation for an age to come a continual Drean without the least Hope a of any compensation even in the age of posterity these thoughts make my pen Hostil to the a Matein and not know when to Call a he us. Or. Governor its for the great and powerful prospects held out to View by the frauds of the a a Mem we View them phantom or Bubble filled with wind raised by men wilfully and politically bewitched and never can or will be a Blessing to the Good people of the state of Indiana but will be a curse to the pie amp ent and future generations nol Worth one Copper cent but Ren Iain a Monument of their Folly time out of memory. Why or. Governor it is the opinion of Hundri of men of As Good judgment As those who made the Law that if All the Public works now Laid out in this state was done and made a present of to the state their profits would not keep them in Good repair for the business done would not maintain the works and keep the state free of charge let alone borrowing Money and paying entrust for to make the work themselves and then make a profit. Or. Give nor that can be seen Plain a the nose on a mans face Only listen at common sense if Only one rout from the most Busi Iwin Point through the state was done and the rest let alone when this one had Mot i imnet than it omit la them the proceeds of this one make another Ven these too was overrun with business their surplus proceeds should make another this is sound legislation. Or. Gov. I am a weakly old Man and perhaps could not be fooled out of Many Days if you would take my Scalp for tolling my mind for i try to talk As i feel. Or. Governor you know what is every body business is no body business kit if every body would attend to what ought to is his business we would attend this legislature now in session fir by petitioning in behalf of the constitutional rites of Man i f to did not then succeed then by remonstrance if we did nol succeed i then should it be for forcing an act repealing the whole business included in the system of internal improvements and Settle up the journal of Folly heretofore made and commence anew if the business was thought to Clear Cost doing one thing at a time. If our present gov. Would take this course he would immortalize his name with the people at this state of things. I am surprised thai political gentlemen will take our Loose Lile Lions Tor a test in favor of Tho improvement system appoint an election try the matter As it ought to have been done single handed a fair trial and see what will become of your improvement system if the representatives had not been so smart and assumed the Power and thus went into the measure and then said we have the voice of the people when the people did nol know what they were doing until they had the beast of a calf made and heard of the makers thereof Licking it and mooing around it and Over it As though it were some Garcal thing they Hail a Rongfu Forth and so it is a Inagh y destroyer of the Money and the poor mans of Riugi. Or. Governor if i should Call our Humble legislature a pack of swindles would you dispute my word you who How they make Laws and the people Are swindled out of their Money without comi Eris asian bul feed the people in with false hocs such As they know never can of performed or made True. Or. Gov. We have got another set of accomplished Greenhorn gentlemen divided of into committees Tor the Pur Osof revising the Langletz Laws of Indiana j we shall Havo that Job done Osome purpose about 700 dollars or Day Wilid 10 Shew the intention of this business. Or. Gov. If what is the business of All the people of this stale Only be the business of a convenient number of petitioners we would very soon Send them word to adjourn to their next annual meeting for out of their doings More distress will grow have been conceived for Tho Mammoth must be fed and those that wait on him taxes must be based the collector must enforce the collect ton the poor Man is forced to sell his last cow the children May cry fur milk if he will not sell it the collector tells him if you do not get my Money i will do it for you. With impertinent sayings like this roust the poor Man put up with for 1 have Noi her seen or heard of any Law exempting any thing from being sold a or taxes but horror and distress is his Fate his Tittle All is in the Lions Mouth without the least mercy however ind genl his circumstance May be the monster must be fed. Or. Gov and honorable gentlemen both housed of the general Assembly of the state of Indiana i have spoken my mind freely but nol fully but i think that i have in the general hit on the mind of the people if you think not proc him an election see what the people say if i have Mist it poll give up Tike a Man. I subscribe myself a Friend to common sence and a Judi com Sisley of improvement. The above was intended for the consideration of the governor and legislature last Winter while in session. A few remarks to the people 1 would ask the people if they Rule the legislature or if the legislature Havo ruled the people Well if our legislature have become so Mullish nol willing to be caught or ruled Boas to Render service to their owners Ikuji by Theira Clofis we think have denied the right of Zinsli petion therefore we the people declare that the Power to Rule is of right in us All Potter is inherent in the people Ana All free government Are founded on their authority Ani in tit used for their peace safety and Happ Meu for the advancement of these ends they have at All times an in alienate and indefeasible right to a Tor or Reform their in suck manner As they May deem proper.

Jesse Nader. From a amp Lam in City Gaxety. Tie funeral obsequies of the unfortunate individuals who were blown up in the Moselle took place in Cincinnati on saturday copy an a coi no of that Mournful ceremony from the Gazette. Obsequies of the saturday afternoon april 28ih, the Mournful Doty of committing to Tho grave Nineteen of the sufferers in the destruction of the Mosselle was pc formed in this City Asanti rated with a solemn funeral service upon a m unt of All the sufferers. As the calamity was Peculiar add transcendent in its horrors so were the funeral obsequies solemn and imposing beyond any thing that has Ever taken place in this City. At three of clock upon the first toll of the Bell every place of business was closed it is believed there was no exception. Apparently Tho whole City was a moving mass to the foot of Broad Way where the procession was forming this was accomplished according to previous regulations. The deceased enclosed in proper couns were placed in the Hearse of the cily which not being sufficient to convey them the necessary number of carries were added. When the precession was prepared to move Broadway to fourth Street and the contiguous approaches of the intersecting streets were literally choked with one crowded Jam of he Oman All these no word was spoken no look of levity was indulged. The Universal feelings was Loo deep for any such sensation w be Felt. Tho Progress of the procession so vast in numbers so solemn in manner made every where on its line of movement the deepest impression. Sad and sorrowful faces hundreds of them Bede wed with tears crowded to windows doors and All places Efobi ovation. The interment took place in Tho Public burial Grovind and at this last act of respect and kindness that can be performed by the living for the dead some most touching scenes occurred. Turpe to be deposited in their last earthly rest Wera Atran Gors. Some of them were members of the same family and in one or two instances surviving relatives were present one Mother adar Man. Whose husband is among the lost cast Hartelt upon the Colum of her Only two children in agonies Seldom we must omit a detail of those sconce i he impressive funeral service of the episcopal Chur ii was read by the Kev. Or. Brooks Sud a Brief bul most pertinent a a effecting address made by the Rev. Or. Sehome of Tho methodist episcopal Church. Our narration Here ends and we presume not to break its effect with any reflections. A Host of the citizens of the towns of Newport and Covington and of surrounding country joined in the procession la is estimated that More than 20 thousand persons were present. A persons belonging to Galena Illinois one of whom was named Soieau and the other Fries met in personal combat on the 20th ult. On Tho ice at the Mouth of fever River. The Bac woodsman which relates the affair says Tho thermometer was 20 degrees below Sero whilst their blood was at boiling heat. They look their position 20 pages and at the word of command look steady aim but at lha very moment when they should have Killo amp amid other the heels of one slipped on Tho ice and he Imi without firing the pistol of the other missed fire Butyn the dreadful anxiety of the moment he was not a of this and supposing a had killed his anal gonad As he saw him fall he took to Bis heels to Oso it rearrest for murder and has nol since been heard of.
