Tie following very interesting interview with m. L Bundy of new Castle was read at the love feast last Niht by capt. Thornburg of the new Castle Prees in 1829 i heard my first political speech. It was made at Centerville by Hon. John test who was a Randi Date for Congress. I knew him Well and have known every candidate for Congress in the old Burnt District since that time. Test spoke from a goods Box opposite the court House Hud i walked three Miles to hear him. The body of bis 8peeoh was devoted to Public improvements railroads and canals. I remember that he said that the time would come and that some were there who would live to see it when Indiana would be crossed by Many railroads upon which the trains would run thirty Miles an hour. Some of the bystanders said after a it iid that such a thing was impossible because it would take the breath of a passenger and nobody could live and be propelled at that rate. When the old Burnt District was first formed composed of Wayne a try Fayette and Union counties the ratio of representation was a representative in Congress for 37,000 population Aud As the ratio increased we increased until we took in Many More counties than that. In 1841 the District included Randolph and Jay counties. In that year Caleb b. Smith Jonathan Mccarty Aud Charles h. Test were the whig candidates for Congress. The convention to nominate was held at Economy Wayne county and i attended As a Delegate. Smith was nominated but Mccarty declared the nomination unfair and both he and test ran through to the election. Andrew casaday a Delaware county Democrat came out and was elected. When he went on to washing Tom he inn hed and said Quot i beat three of the Ablest whigs in the District and i i uld easily have beaten As Many More Quot Caleb b. Smith was elected by a Large majority in 1848, and again in 1845 Aud 1847. In 1845 the diet strict got the name of the Quot Burnt Disi Rich Quot in the Spring of that year great tire swept Over part of the City of Pittsburg and tie territory burned Over was called Quot the Burnt George Aud Page Chap Man were then publishing the Indianapolis Sentinel and in speaking of Smith s election by a Large majority that paper said Quot Smith carried the Burnt District Quot Aud the name has Clung to it Ever since. I have a letter in my Library from Smith written in 184in which he Sites referring to the congressional convention Quot if any Man presents my name to the convention i authorize you to withdraw it Quot in that year George Julian was elected to Congress an a free soil abolitionist by a Union of the democrats Aud at Politi ousts. In 1851, Samuel w Parker who had been Defeated by Julian was fleeced and served tour years in 1854, we began to elect in the even years and judge David Kilgour of Delaware county was elected Aud served 1 think four years after Kilgour came George Julian Ham. Who served several years and wan ten Italy beaten by judge Jeremiah it Lou of Connersville. In 1841, Dearborn Aud Wayne counties were about the most populous in Indiana. At that time Wayne county had two senator and four representatives in the legislature. Heury half As May in each House and i think Fayette had one senator Aud one representative and Union county which then had More population than now had one representative. So Yon see the population of Indiana has increased Narv Elousy in sixty years. I was a representative from Henry county in the Legislatures of 1849 and 1861 in the latter year being a member of the reception committee when the legislature tendered a banquet to president Lincoln on his Way East. I was a Delegate to the National whig convention which nominated general Taylor in 1848, and to the Republican convention in 1856, at Philadelphia i was also a Delegate in 1872, when Grant was renominated. A meeting had been held the Winter before the Philadelphia convention in Pittsburg at which general Grose was a representative Aud they claimed that they had formed the Republican party. But when we got to Philadelphia there was no party and we had to hire a Hall Aud pay the expenses of the convention. The convention was in june. George Ash Burn of Massachusetts was chairman. There was some talk of Nomi Natius Lincoln who was in the convention being a Delegate at Large think from Illinois. After Fremont was nominated new England put up her Best orators in Independence Square but Caleb b. Smith made much the Best speech that was made there. I have just written his biography. He never told stories in bis speeches but related Many at the fireside. I have heard him Tell May. He read Law a Little in Cincinnati and then came up to Connersville and finished with Oliver h. Smith. He was admitted to the bar and opened an office. Soon afterwards a Man came in Aud said he would like to have him collect a judgement which he had recovered in court some time before. The Young lawyer was delighted to have a Case. He went to the clerk s office and said to the clerk Gabriel Ginn that he wanted an execution issued on the judgement in favor of his client. Quot very Well or. Smith file a Precipe Aud i will Issue the Smith did not know what a Precipe was and was ashamed to ask so he went out and in the course of time came Back and filed the Precipe and the execution was issued Aud the Money collected. Smith would stand As motionless As a statue when speaking and the words would How in a perpetual Stream and he never wanted fur a Hingle word to Complete a sentence. He was born in Massachusetts and when a Small child his father moved to Cincinnati where his Hume was the stopping place for a celebrated Baptist minister Wilson Thompson. It was Caleb s business to Black the minister s boots on saturday evening. Afterwards when Thoopson came up Here Aud ran fur Congress he had become a steam doctor and South dubbed h a Quot old poke Henry Clay dug his political grave in the Burnt District by a speech he mad at Richmond in 1842 a Man named Merid Uhall presented him a petition asking him to Eilau opiate his slaves Aud Clay made the petition the subject of a great speech i Diu up by saying Quot go Home or. Men Delhall Aud attend to your business and i will attend to Mendeu Hall went Home and attended to his business. He helped to the abolition party which Calt it enough vote i in the state of new Yurk alone to have elected Clay president if they Hud All by eur cast for him. I joined the Clay cavalcade at knights town and went to Indianapolis with the party and heard him speak there. That City had committeemen on each Road leading into the pity to look after visitors. I was directed to the Home of Henry p. Coburn then clerk of the supreme court. His son John then a big boy look care of my horse and afterwards Rose to distinction. We have been friends from that time to this. Indianapolis then had not More than three thousand people. I knew Oliver h. Smith very Well Aud was with him la his last sickness. He was the Ablest lawyer in my opinion that Ever practice in this circuit and one of the greatest men of the Burnt District. With James Rariden Samuel w. Parker Caleb b. Smith and Charles h. Test i practice and did business for Many years. Parker was for a Long time president of the White water canal company whose Headquarters were at Connersville in the old building still standing. I was a director of the company for a Long time and knew Many people in Connersville. At one time the company passed a Resolution that for any lands they had and they had a great Deal they would take Twenty five per cent less than the appraised value and take canal Stock in payment at Par. I went Down and told Parker that i had heard of their offer and had selected some lands in Deleware and Hancock counties that i would take that Way. He had the deeds made and signed them. Turning to me he said Quot Bundy i used to think Yon were a Young Man of Good sense but now i know you Are a of. Those lands Are worthless they Are the tag end of the company s Moon property and it wants to get rid of them while this Stock will pay ten per cent i replied i am very glad to know that the Stock is so valuable i have some of it the Stock went Down until it was utterly worthless while i sold the Laud for twice what i gave for it. It will not be necessary to go to Ciuc Iupati next week to see Fine plays. At last a first class melodrama is headed this Way.
