Propositions we hear have been made by the citizens of certain towns on that Railroad to put up the needed and sub Puntil Public is toward a spacious court House of such places should be agreed on us spot. Legislative authority should at Onec-5o that body adjourns the people to of county had locate their neat of jus Lico at Walc Loo Asil is the Point mid any Down removal in loss Lime for it will go in More Inopportune Lime. One thing May save it and that is the completion of Tho Kel Olivcr thing very profile magical and if to to is an cont no in coming time As to make it an in judicious lining to count on for the present. As awful work editor of Iho xxx Timal Democrat a administration it Cleveland nays his design i purify the democratic party. Rebii there has been As much discussion in a Short time in and orc of Tho newspapers on thu subject of the cant Ifni abandonment by Tho Jond holders through Tho Trust us the Relief cud cd and the propriety and Justice of that Relief Aso Nimy other subject which we Romuli tiber of and certainly More ignorance and manifested demagogy Urical disinclination to meet the Stig i by on Tho part of portions if Tho than our oldest citizens remember of in connection with any matter the subject of legislative consideration. The vrho cause of the present ebullition of fueling on this subject we think arose from the report of the canal trustees who were the Mere agents whose names were used to make official the arguments and Tho wants of Charles Butler has All the line Ocen posted and whose information is most extended and 3 it most on1 All. That pertains to this subject and who As a party in interest is sup posed to to Vav a of attn is intr for the interests of that work which affords him so bounteous a re Ward for services rendered. The Point in All this was to suddenly Spring the question and White the Public was alarmed at the Prospect of the abandonment of this artery of the commercial life of this Region to get Ai a from the legislature or some recognition of a claim which May Only exist on paper. But now this is not the question the scheme has been anticipated and he questions to be asked arc what is needed not what Butler wants what so would Indiana do not what is she legally bound of do. We doubt if any one has yet been fully advised of what the bondholders want As a practical Busi Ness thing and hence All who Are discussing this thing arc discussing a Mere abstraction and politicians arc shirking the responsibility of even facing the music or talking of it. As for the abandonment of that canal our readers 11103 res assured it will never be done any More than the Ohio River will be abandoned. The bondholders May refuse to keep it up but then the state of Indiana has and will have too High and Correct an estimate of the value of that work to let it go Clown. As it has been the Means of developing the resources of Indiana so it will continue for centuries to bless with advantages the proximate and neighbouring regions through which it passes. To Day it is of More importance to the Region through which it passes than the flail roads. It is no monopoly. It is valuable to Crary interest from the shipper of hoop poles to the merchant shipper. To Day is its darkest hour and we Tell All those who Are alarmed at Tho Prospect that there is no danger. The state of Indiana will not let that thing deteriorate. Her stale Pride i will not allow it the interests of the anxious and enterprising thousands along the line will not Al Low it but ii less than Twenty years this now partially discarded work will be enlarged its Hydraulic Power improved and steam will to used is a propeller. The Mil ways can not compete for cheapness and then the sinews of Commerce the produce of All kinds will to multiplied an immense Rotio until this canal will stand the lira Channel of the West ave this is u dark hour but the Light will soon break on Tho vision of All.

It will be remembered that the Large donation of land to1 Tho state of Indiana by Tho United states my tic by Congress on the 3d March 1827, for the construction of a thoroughfare of navigation from inc head navigation on Tho matinee to the head of navigation on the Wabash had a condition thereto which was that unless the state commenced the work absolutely within five years from and after the Date of Tho approval of the act that the Gre int would lapse therefore our Pioneer men after the assiduous efforts at Home abroad and in tie legislature and after they had gotten the surveys completed late in 1831, and the beginning of 1832, and Al though la not prepared to let any portion of the work uie commissioners we think Jordan Samuel Cliris and David Burr let Section no. 1, at the Junction of the feeder and main line one mile and a half West of this City Wil Kamr and Edward Rock half ordered the work to be commenced or in flier words the ground to be broken on Tho 22d feb. 1833, so As to bring them literally and substantially within the spirit and letter of the Grant. In order to give the event a prominent place in the id people and to give it that which it deserved the commissioners gave due notice Liat an attendance might be had which would comport with the object of the work. How it was celebrated and attended we leave the Reader to judge from the printed proceedings which were in March of that year 1832 copied into the Cass county times pulic shed at logans port Here being no paper then published at this Point and that being the nearest office of the kind to fort Wayne.
