Fort Wayne Weekly Republican (Newspaper) - February 2, 1859, Fort Wayne, Indiana Mem Zsirai v Fexer p. Bailet kid Toni. Ano so Petok. B Oifer a a traits iwo in essay morning feb. 2,1859. C. H. Scriven commercial agent Chiego Iii., is authorised to receive sub Tio scrip and advertisements for the fort Wayne Republican at our published rates. The Bauk of the state. Of debate or from other a mtg no itt is Lead to Sadr what ought not to have been said must Onoe mak�fa0 Amei ids ble and in doing to appear the More the gentleman and on the Mother hand he. Who knowing or insults another without making Airenda for it is not a gentleman and on that very acct the is unworthy of notice and be who descends to notice him further Tiu in to rebuke him Pulis himself Down to his level a who favors the poor Man the present Bank of the state seems to have inherited from the Day of its birth an opposition which for intensity and bitterness it has not Follen to the lot of any similar institution in the country certainly not in the state to resist. Much of this has undoubtedly Arisen from causes connected with the obtaining of the charter and the distribution of the Stock into the hands of original holders. Gov. Wright vetoed the Bill As a first step in opposition. The legislature passed the Dill authorising its establishment Over the veto. At the meeting of the next legislature he denounced it in his message and a committee was appointed to investigate the foundation of his complaint who published an elaborate report on the sub to after the legislature had adjourned which Gaye a full history of All the Means resorted to by which the charter was obtained and which shows some of the parties interested in not a very enviable Light this did not disturb the Confidence reposed in the institution by the people. The Bank having in the mean time got under la the same legislature which authorized this investigation a Resolution was introduced and referred to the judiciary committee looking to a repeal of its charter but the committee reported against it. Gov. Wright then instituted proceedings in court in the nature of a writ of quo warranty inquiring into the authority by which the institution exercised the Powers of a Bank hoping to get a decision against it but the court held that the Bank was legally chartered and held its franchises by constitutional right. The Case was appealed to the supreme court and that has lately confirmed the judgment of the court below. One would think that opposition had now Boen carried far enough to meet the ends of Justice and to gratify party or personal dislike but it seems not for we notice that but a few Days ago a Bill was introduced into the Senate of the state by or. Conley for repealing the charter of the Bank which was referred to a committee composed of messes. Conley March Weir Wagner and Hefren. What is to be the result of this movement we do not know but we regret to learn that Republican members of the legislature Are advocating voting for and sustaining this latter movement which if successful is fraught with ruinous Conse quinces to the Best interests of the state. Why republicans should want to share in a warfare which had its beginning chiefly with the democracy we Are at a loss to conceive. That party claims to have been mainly instrumental in passing the Bill by which the Bank was chartered. The fight about it has Ever since been principally confined to members of that party and Why not let them have the credit of fighting it out to an end that will be anything but creditable to the state should the Bank be crushed in the struggle. It should not be forgotten that the Bank is not now in the hands of those who organized it. Its controlling Man ement has passed into the hands of the substantial and conservative men of the state men of capital and business capacity the same men indeed who so successfully managed the old Bank of the state and from whom the school fund realized the Large sum of $2,-700,000 As the state s share of its Twenty years earnings. There is no Bank in the West or in the East that has a better credit to Day or is More deservedly popular than the present Bank of the state and All because of the efficiency of its management. It matters not with the Community what were its begin rings a the question with the people is Quot is it now what the wants of the Community require it unquestionably is now meeting the great wants of the state in furnishing a Safe circulating medium and a War upon that 6ank now is a War on one of the useful institutions of the state and in effect it is a War upon the Best business men of the Sute who Are its really Hope that republicans will keep their hands off it it the democrats do All that kind of fighting and shoulder All that kind of responsibility. The Douglas and Fitch correspondence which we publish to Day like Many other of that class of blustering exhibitions ended in a real Back Down on the part of Douglas. It would have been much better never to have written a note demanding an explanation thai fur it was conditionally made and withdrawn to be obliged to profess to be satisfied with it or resort to the extremes requited by what is Felly called Quot the code of Hor or.

It would be to Ete Dii of ism Law Man m it we to a Bill recently introduced into the House of representatives in relation to surveying Public lands and providing for their settlement or. Grow of Pennsylvania offered the following amendment be it further enacted that from and Afler the passage of Thi act no Public land shall be exposed to Sale by proclamation of the president unless the same shall have been surveyed and the return of such Survey duly filed in the land office for ten years or More before such Sale. The effect of this amendment if adopted and the Bill had become a Law would have been to let the poor Man who settles in the far West have ten years in which to buy the lands and to make the Money therefor out of the very soil itself upon which he May have squatted. Under so Liberal and Wise a provision As this had it become a Law any Man in the country it matters not How poor he May have been if he could but get out on the unsettled lands of the West would have had an Opportunity of at once commencing to make a living and of securing for himself a Good farm at the end of a few yers. Yet this amendment was voted Down by a vote 82 to 97, and the Bill itself Defeated by a vote of 91 to 95�?All the republicans voting for the measure and nearly All the democrats against it the Southern democrats in a solid Phalanx against it.

Instead of giving matters that immediately concern their readers their Home incidents and enter priv a and speculation and thus becoming useful in their Day and generation at Home and abroad in nine cases out of ten they Burden themselves with ponderous matter from the City papers which is bad enough at first and at second hand is Mere we can agree with the commercial that local news is of great value but we dissent from the idea Here inculcated Quot that local news gossip and Home incidents and Enterprise Quot Are the Only things of value in a country town or Village newspaper published a few hours ride from the great Center of politics Trade and it implies either that people who read country newspapers feel no interest nor have any taste for or Are incapacitated from want of intelligence to appreciate the general news of the Day from All parts of the world or that this More extended information should be furnished to such country readers through the medium of newspapers published in these great political centers leaving nothing for the local press to do but to publish local news. Country papers under the plan of the commercial would doubtless become very valuable adjuncts to the City papers in furnishing them with local items but for All other purposes of a newspaper such As Are demanded by a Reading and intelligent Community they would be totally to pen an accidents to note the weather and report the proceedings of a police court May be very Well As far As they go but this constitutes a very Small proportion of the whole mass of Reading matter necessary to make a newspaper such As any Community of Ordinary intelligence would support. Who Pray is so stupid As to be satisfied with Reading the accounts of fires runaways and other Small items making up the local columns of. A newspaper these Are but the incidents thrown in As it were valuable to be sure As far As they go but by themselves Are of but Little it is the Stiring events of the whole world that the Reading people want to be kept informed about. They want to know what is going on at the National Capitol at the centers of thought whether at Home or a Broad and an intelligent mind will not be satisfied with less and if the country press does not furnish it the City papers would be taken instead. The commercial s suggestions Are Good As a design to Root out the country press and Institute in its Stead the free circulation of the City papers. Such is evidently the design of the article from which we have quoted and it amounts in fact to an attack upon the country press which should be resented. For ourselves we Are now publishing daily the news of the whole world at the moment almost that such events transpire and Lay them before our readers immediate i3. For example we receive by Telegraph the proceedings of Congress the foreign arrivals and All other news that the associated press in any part of the a a. S. Receives at 2 o clock and Lay the whole of it before our readers by 6 o clock p. M., on the same Day. Our citizens therefore need not subscribe for newspapers published in the great cities when All the leading events Are published by their Home papers from Twenty four to forty eight hours in Advance of such intelligence reaching them by the mails or express through the columns of the City press 0 5&Quot Rev.

Washington j an a str 1809 -. , in secret see join Yon offered me an affront void unprovoked and unjust Bable that i Ami obliged to infer in push is is it must be been the impulse of Momenta by inns in a and not of deliberate premeditation. This note is written for the purpose of affording you an Opportunity of saying whether or conclusion is Correct and further of affording you an Opportunity of retracting the offensive language which you thus gratuitously and unwarrantable applied to me. Respect Billy &c., s. A. Douglas. To Hon. Graham n. Fitch. Fitch s reply. Washington Jan. 22,1859. Sib your note of yesterday was handed me this morning. In reply i have to say that you yesterday made a charge that the lately appointed Federal of scars in Illinois were corrupt and dishonest men or words to that effect you know my son to be one of those officers and you could not expect me to hear such a charge without prompt denial of its truth. I pronounce it to be to your knowledge untrue. You subsequently so modified it so As to satisfy me that you excepted my Sou from the general charge although you did not name him and i made no further Issue with you on that subject when at a subsequent period of your remarks you attributed to me statements which i had not made i requested that in quoting me you should do so truthfully. These remarks were certainly not deliberately premeditated but they cannot be qualified correctly As the impulse of momentary passion. The first was prompted by a determination to defend the Honor and character of my son As dear to me As my own against an attack so general in its terms As necessary to include him and the second was the exercise of my right to rectify a Misrop mentation of my own . N. Fitch. To Hon. S. A. Douglas. Douglas to Fitch. Washington 22�?p. Sir your note of this Date has just been placed in my hand. I admit without hesitation your right and duty to do Justice to the reputation of your son. At the same time i maintain my right in the discharge of my duty As senator to comment freely and fully on the character of executive appointments especially in my own state. I deny however that my general remarks in relation to the Illinois appointees confirmed by the Senate during my absence could be fairly interpreted to embrace your son. When you seemed so to construe them i promptly replied that what i had said of the Illinois appointments was True As a general Rule but that there were exceptions among whom i recognized some of my own friends. Alluding particularly to your son i added that i had nothing to say in regard to the merits of his appointment choosing to leave that question where i placed it by my remarks to the Sanate during the last session in your presence at the time of his confirmation. You now admit that you understood this explanation to exempt your son from the application of my general remarks and yet you have failed to withdraw the offensive language but on the contrary at a subsequent stage of the debate when apologizing for a breach of senatorial decorum you expressly declared that you had nothing to retract thus appearing in my apprehension to re affirm the objectionable words. As to the other grounds of offensive language admitted in your reply to my note i have to say that i did not understand you to assume to Correct me in a quotation of our language As i was unconscious of Maing any such citation but to repeat the original ofic nce in another form otherwise i should have made a proper response on the instant this explanation which is due alike to us both on the Points presented in you re ply affords you another Opportunity of withdrawing the offensive words which you admit you applied in yesterday s Date. Respectfully &c., s. A. Douglas. Hon. Graham n. Fitch. Or. Fitch to or. Douglas. Washington Jan. 23. Sir your note of last evening was handed me at 12 m. To Day. Your explanation in regard to my son being now explicit i have no hesitation in saying that if you had excepted him from your charge or not made it general. I would not have deemed myself warranted in repelling in the words of which you complain As offensive and which in consequence of your explanation i now withdraw. I am also in formed by your note that if you had not been mistaken in relation to my remarks on the subject of your misrepresentation of my sentiments you would at the instant have made proper response. This likewise enables me to say that in my closing remarks explanatory to the Senate of my share in the exciting debate upon a subject not rate Vani to anything before that body and the responsibility for the introduction of which rested solely with you i would have withdrawn As i now do the second offensive remarks if you had made the same Satis amp a tory explanation then you have now made. Respectfully &c.,g. N. Fitch. Hon. S. A. Douglas. My. Douglas to or. Fitch. Washington Jan. 24. Sib your note of yesterday has been received and while i accept your withdraw of the words to which i have taken exception i owe it to myself to protest against the idea you seem to entertain that my note of saturday was intended As a precedent and inducing condition of the redress which i solicited instead of being As i certainly designed it merely responsive to the specification in your reply to my first communication. In regard to the introduction and relevancy of the matter in the debate out of which this difficulty arose i cannot think that a proper subject of discussion in the present correspondence.
