Fort Wayne Weekly Times (Newspaper) - June 1, 1859, Fort Wayne, IndianaWednesday evening june 1, 18b9. Popular sovereignty Protection 10 americas 1800, John j. Crittenden of Kentucky. A Hafid Case of Chas. A of the Republican family. The following Well written article is from the Goshen times of the 19th May and from the pert of Geo Howell of Liat place in answer to sluts. Case s relative to the appointment of Jerome Chamberlain As Cadet at the National military Academy at West Point Over the claims of Charles Howell Tho son of the said go. Ilow Ell and in violation of pc pledges which article we copy for the Benefit of the members of the Republican family and not for anything else the Cadet appointment. Messes. Editors letter of Hon. Charles Case recently published in your columns in re Gard to the West Point Colet shop and the exciting remarks it has Given Rise to among Many of my warm personal As Well As political friends together with the imperative Call of l a Republican upon me in your last paper for information upon the subject indicates to me the necessity of a Plain statement of All the facts that have come to my knowledge touching the Mailer. In doing so i will say in Advance that i am not influenced by any feelings of bitterness towards or. Case or any desire to enter into any controversy upon the subject but on tic contrary that i be Lieve he was deceived by one whom he had Laid himself under obligations to and by petitions secretly circulated to procure the signatures of re publicans from whom the knowledge that there was a Republican candidate in the Field was care fully excluded. This May not have been the Case with All who signed it but i have Good authority for believing that it was with the largest proportion of them. And while upon this subject i will say for myself that i never for a moment thought of circulating a petition for the a having Cen informed by Milo s. Ilas Call that or Case would appoint any one who he should i will say further lion. Charles l. Murray is the Only person who Ever wrote to or. Case upon the subject at my request tile iwo spoken of by or. Case who wrote at Case s request and recommended my son did so without my knowledge at the Lime and without consulting me about it one of whom the lamented Mather has since paid the debt of nature the other j. Ii. , esq., can speak for himself and new to the facts of the the month of july last my son Charles then a lad 17 years old supposing that there was a vacancy for tins District in the West Point Academy whole to or. Case soliciting the appointment As Cadet to which or. Case replied promptly stating that the vacancy had been tilled by the appointment of a or. Reed of fort Wayne and assuring him that in heed should fail to hold the place be would then remember him As an applicant for it this announcement i hoped would Kettle thu matter and indeed Charles to abandon tic idea of a military education and turn his Julind to the vocation fur which he had previously Felt inclined audio which his education had been directed. In his however i was disappointed. Early in the ensuing fall t discovered that in Stead of giving the project up he was being More confirmed in it and through the encouragement of others entertained the Hope that a vacancy would occur by reason of heed s failing in his Lisl examination and being assured Liat if lie failed tic second time he would be dismissed and that the place would be procured for him. Finding his mind so entirely absorbed in the matter after mature deliberation i deemed it imprudent to of polio his wishes longer and learning from him that or. Hascall would do what he could to pro Mote his appointment in Case of a vacancy i thought proper to Spenk to or. about it Contie intently when visited Cus Lien of Tor bin re Elc Clion i called on him Al the Yio Letl House and after slating Bluit my previous plans Luul Boon for my son. And , his increasing passion for the Cnoc ship requested him in Case a vacancy should occur to give Churk a the appointment his reply was he had appointed or Reed and although he had failed in his hrs examination be hoped he might a drava himself on to fail again Lum Ever the place would be vacated and in Charles had been highly recommended by a Friend in whose judg ment in Stich mailers he had entire con Odence i certainly remember him i the next appointment. So matters rested until sometime in february Lojdl when Charles became highly elated and stated to that Ihu expected vacancy had occurred Ami Liml or. Hascall came voluntarily to him and announced the lad and him that if he still wished the appointment i would to or. Case recommending him Tun be and no doubt of his appointment As or. Cost had requested him to nominate the at this stage of proceeding i thought it my duly to have a personal interview with or. Hastall on the subject Natl within a Day or two found an Opportunity of doing so i slated to him what Charles had told assured him that 1 should be fur his assist Nice in procuring tin place for him although it not the profession i had hoped he would make Choice of. Has Rall in i ply wild Tomt shirt he had Given that Cero air. Ngu Seiil to Charles had Arisen which plan cd him in a very delicate situation will regard to the his brother in Law judge Chamberlain having Learned Hal there was a vacancy which he could till insisted upon recommending his son for Tho place he also stated that he was Indahl cd to Lac judge for his Oivin to the when he was a stranger Diirr. Lie further said that he had weighed the in Lilc mat Ter and had come to the conclusion Liat the Only honorable course for him to pursue under the circumstances was to bund on equal recommendations Lor both of the boys and leave or. Case entirely free to chose Between them and that he had determined to adopt that . In reply 1 told him that i appreciated the delicacy of his situation and that i thought Tho course he pro posed to pursue was the Only one left for him and that if he look that course no Man should Ever hear a word of complaint from me let the result to what it might. He assured me that he should write the next Day or the Day following and should leave the whole Choice with or. Case. Time passed on and 1 Learned that Ila Scall in Stead of writing from Here had gone to Ali Ilcy county and it Wayne. I then suspected that he had changed his plan of disinterestedness and would give a decided recommendation to his Nephew consequently i consulted a Friend re Garding it and was assured that i was not the Only one to whom he bad made Tho pledge to recommend Bolh of the boys and leave the decision to or. Feeling confident that my suspicions were Well grounded i suggested Locharles that he Hod better write again to or. Case about it and he did so during the absence of or. Lias a copy of his letter. The follow ing Day i wrote Nice Elf to or. Case stating the pledges Ila Scall had Given me about his recommendation and assuring him that if Ila Scall did m to promised to i should to perfectly satisfied with his Case s decision in the matter. Here my personal action in the premises ceased. Not so however with or. Case. On the 9th of March after returning from Congress and receiving the letters of messes. Do frees and Mather he wrote a letter to Charles slating that to had mislaid his letters and requested him to write immediately and give him his exact age that the position assumed by Ila Scall embarks cd him Asho had Given Charles encouragement because of his obligation to Hascoll and concluded by saying that he would do right in the matter and the result would Only be known when the action o the department was made Public. A Day later Charles received a telegraphic dispatch from or. Case announcing that chamber Lin would get thu appoint ment and that he would write particulars soon. Accordingly on the 11th of March lie whole that be had sent on both names to the Secretary of War As worthy but had nominated chamber lain which would Likely to secure him Iho appointment that he had hesitated very much As to duty in Tho Mailer but Tho great obligation. He was under to or. Hascall and in Send s unc Quito tul position in favor of Young Chamberlain no could Ace no Way to avoid his but Ait or. Case suggests in his published letter 1 think it probable that if i had circulated a Peti Tion either publicly w privately far my Bod s Point Munt 1 could have procured As Many prominent Republican or democratic names to it in this county As were attached to the Chamberlain petition. Or perhaps if i had followed or. Case to Washington and import Ned him there or had dogged him to it. Wayne on Bis return from Congress and there worried him into Coni Oliance by violating positive pledges and forfeit ing All claims to honorable consideration among men i might have succeeded if not in procuring thu nomination it least in meriting thu contempt of or. Case and All right minded men who have any regard fur consistency of character. Bet of this it is Folly to speak for i should never think of resorting to such measures after being assured that the compliment of naming the candidate had Given As a gratuity or Reward to any one particular individual. I will Sny further in this con that although or. Case Speaks correctly of my political position yet the subject of politics was never broached Between us. In conclusion permit me to say Tomt or. Case is at Liberty to publish everything that has transpired Between film and myself or son in this connection. And As he regrets not having saved copies of his let cars s will furnish them to him if he requests it or Hove them published if he desires for sex culpation1 from blame so far As they go and leave lie Public of judge of the propriety of Bis course in the premises. Geo. 110 Well. Simply remark on the above that the following Points present themselves with orc 1st. Any. 0nwsoq from the Cental committee that he would not sign it that he did not pretend to be a party Matt. This is precisely be position of judge Chamberlain he acting with the democratic party under protest in Hopes that they will eventually work Back to some of the old land i Nark and Howell acting at present with the re publican party under protest because it is for his interest just at present or perchance till Jno. Davison gets one started that he can sympathize with in spirit and in truth. Thus much for myself in All kindness and i confess with a View of avoiding 11 controversy which i can but regard us purely i which the Public can have but Little and which can Only produce one result to the party and that extremely disastrous. I wish it distinctly understood however that i shrink from no scrutiny however searching or Long continued in regard to my action in this matter and i in form the gentleman in Case they propose to at Taek to Hirough Tho press that if i am the privilege of the same medium they will find there Are blows to take of Well As to give and if it be my Fate to go under in the there shall not be wanting unmistakable evidences of the Ripple that shall Mark the spot. Even the worm will turn when tread upon and mortal Man so far is illustrated in my it Pividal Case is not entirely free from the same disposition. Milo s. Hascall. Is but one Point in the above Worth n notice and that Only for the thrust which he would make at the understanding of grown it is this but before proceeding it is to j i proper to say Tomt Ila Scall is a brother in Law of the appointment of Reed and his stated f t i this and Chamberlain and while Chamberlain unqualified lion .

What is to b Home Lound we want them la own the j Brood and be Siruc to their Trust the following appears in the Goshen times of Lulli May the Cadet appointment. Missus Ritvo noticed two or three in your paper concerning the re cent Cadet appointment which perhaps deserve a passing notice from me As i suppose i am the person alluded to As Tomt Tim idea of Charley Murray s writing communication in do an assumed name and especially of done Mather and do frees who recon Cuendet it Case s request must be trilled with Geo.

But the knot to be Canso on whom Ilusca threw the responsibility but How v Why he files with the Secretary War both re mint Sidn Finius but Ait oits Chamberlain and he is confirmed. The Reader will now Iva Dily Sec that i tag Kab Clicker m. Chamberlain has made the appoint he has nut been the the difference. A few years ago Tho Public heart of this t Ity was move until pulsations were Quick and Trong and the Reader will Rome Rubw that the t strength of the movement cume from the who form the numbers and produce wealth by the labor of their hands r employ labor itself to do Wlms brings wealth fan intrinsic or exchangeable the lies who made the on the subject of 10 schools then about to be commenced those edifices at once became embellishments to he City and whose educational results Wero to purify fortify and enlighten the understanding f those connected with those great places of in formation mediately and immediately for the present and for the future. At that time it was conceded that this City had taken a High step up and a Long step Forward in All that pertains to education and morals. It was to work present and prospective to take hold of Way Ward youth and put it on the High Way of Honor and honesty. It was to shed influenced in unceasing circles of living Light and morals in proportion where Var civilization had preceded. And such was really destiny had it not been War cd. But the mighty Host of free school advocates Las been met by judicial interposition and humiliated by legislative omissions of duty until the friends of Llic institution have faltered and the enemies arc smiling at the school1 s in Success. A spasmodic Colfort was made by a few who on the other hand were helping indirectly to Crip Jalc the Enterprise by a Blind obedience to party which always sacrifices passion to prejudice ant Light to the Guise of a purity which is but mockery and of a patriotism which i i counterfeit. There was a feeling among the As we said and the apparent Success was so to benign influences As to equalize show works not in the distended pockets o the few but in the Heads and hearts of the Many licence the capitalist seeing no Chance to Tonaki Money out of the continuation and Good support of these schools Fullerd in hire and us the institution was failing for want of Money i saw it gently sinking and came not to re Sci because there was no dollars and cents in it but right while these schools were going out for he want of funds a project conceived of get eng the location of a state prison at it. Wary n which poor degraded felons arc to expiate crime committed either through the want of education or the want of moral training the Ordinary result of intellectual Elevation. This project sprung and at once even trustees of the Mac of the trustees who Are rarely bund inside the the free school House Are seen leaping from a lethargic condition Toast ing the commissioners of location drawing corks of innumerable trans and Cis Allan tic collecting statistics of every kind which make n Filacc distinguished All for the purpose of gel Ting the prison located at fort Lavayne and that location for the dollars and cents there conies from it. A right in place but then the Dif Ference in conduct what we started out to speak of and i Shilu a Sute 1 Rison is to be built Here these very men Are allowing dark and massive Walls to overshadow those wide and firmer and higher Walls of the i acc school houses. The democratic state c0hyention at Colum Ohio May 30, 50.

Volncy Dorsey from the committee on resolutions submitted the following report which was adopted with great enthusiasm the democracy of Ohio by their delegates in convention assembled hereby Oflinn the platform of principles adopted by the a Currul convention of the democratic party at Cincinnati on the 4th of tune 185k. 1. Resolved that Tho organized territories of the United states although not endowed will All the attributes of sovereignty Are Only held ii the territorial condition until they attain a sufficient number of inhabitants to authorise their ail Mission into the Union As states and therefore arc justly entitled to the right of self government and the undisturbed regulation of their Donic Sti or local a hairs subject to thu Constitution of the United Stales and that any attempt by Congress or any of the Stales to establish or Maii inuit prohibit or abolish the relation of master an1 slave in a territory would be a departure from the original doctrine four american institution and that we adhere immovable to the principal of intervention by Congress with Klaber ii the and territories As declared in the Kansas Nebraska Bill and openly disclaim fellow ship with those whether at the South or the North or the West who counsel the abandon ment limitation or avoidance of that principle. 2. Inteso Lccy that the suppression of t in Afri can and foreign slave Trade by the Federal go1 eminent Aller the year eighteen Hundred and seven is one of the compromises on inc Faith of which the Constitution was adopted and our Union o slav Choldin id non slave holding states i inn prison be tokens crime to be corrected the school establish cd that a revival of that Trade woul not Only Crew those cruelties which once provoked the indignation of the civilized world by would expose the slav holding states Toa Constan terror of Servile insurrection and the nun slave holding states of the Border like Ohio to All the mischief and annoyance of a. Free Black Popula Tion for these reasons with others the a Choc racy of Ohio Are opposed to any such revival an to tending in that y. that the rendition of fugitive slaves upon demand of the persons entitled to their service or labor is a duty imposed on every state of the Union by the terms of the pc Deal compact that the Laws passed by Congress to secure such rendition in 1b5u? ought to lie promptly and lieu Lully executed and that the leaders of the self styled Republican party in Ohio by a persistent disregard of the Constitution of the United states in this particular have shown themselves unworthy of of Well disposed patriotic and peaceable citizens. Tomt the opposition of the Republican party in Congress to the admission of Ore gon exposes fully the Lucr hypocrisy of their j pretensions to to the Peculiar friends of free Betteb times at at no time during two years Post has there in get 0 encouraging prospects of flow for Tho Fann 1-8 of the Northr ii and Middle states and Tern dries. The Southren states or those cultivating Otton have enjoyed a Liege degree of pro Peri y for year or More but just now the scale ap1 ears to be slightly turned against them though of so much so we to Light As is predicted by some journals. Should England by a the largest con liner of american1 Cotton become deeply in in the european contest Tho Price of cot on must fall off somewhat at least. It will be Vise then for Cotton growers to give More it anti Otto com and other cereals the two principal direct causes of distress among Northern banners have been dirt to poor crops and second the Low Market value of Tho diminished products resulting from Tho depressed financial condition of ten or foreign countries As Well. In regard to the first cause of distress named there arc Many reasons for predicting Good if not very abundant harvests this year one of which s the present flourishing state of Tho growing crops throughout the entire country. Every Day rings us glowing accounts of the excellent condition of the Winter and Early Spring grains and no better weather than we have had during a month past could have been asked for had it been got up to the warm dry weather of the last of april and the first of May greatly facilitated planting and sowing and at the same time pushed ahead tic growing crops very rapidly. Then when the ground had just begun to get too dry a Bountiful rain fell. Now May 1-6 the weather is Tine and warm again and we can almost Sec things of some fifty varieties of held and Garden seeds we hurried into the ground the first week in May nearly everything is already up and growing splendidly there is also one noteworthy fact is very in Conr Nging now there has Seldom if Ever been a succession of poor crops for three consecutive years. We have not often had very poor crop even two years together. Therefore As we Hui just had one poor year following another no quite so bad but still bad the whole county is Safe to conclude that the present year will be at least a Good one As respects the second cause of distress to Low prices the country is rapidly recovering it wonted activity in nil departments of business and the demand for farm products for Home con sumption is much greater than for sometime past the Large emigration to the Gold Fields has d minish cd the number of persons engaged in no i cultural since of the vast Multi tuck who hav gone to Pike s and elsewhere in scarce of Gold by far the largest proportion was drafter from the Western fanning regions. This Wil none Render More remunerative the labors o those who have been Wise enough to dig for Gol on their own farms. The most prominent feature in the prospective prices of farm produce is however the probable foreign demand which for a year past has been very Trilling. To Day we have news from europ indicating that War Between at least two of the leading Powers France and Austria 1ms actually commenced and other Continental countries or and will be involved. More Tymn a million o Noble bodied men arc already in arms. These Reg ular armies Are not gathered there As Here b voluntary enlistment from among an unsuccessful or shiftless class who join the army to cause they can not or will not support selves by Active labor but in most of burp j icy Are drafted from the Able bodied peasantry this of course must diminish the number of pro Sucura to Sny nothing of thu cessation of Ugric i lure in the country ravaged by the March of the House Corinie to happiness to Husn k Vind Ticco Contentment to he enjoyed and in to the school House and the prison Art each to he supported the former a necessary evil. And has it cume. I the and Iho prison is hied Mort the school and the prison empty. Shall we All therefore contribute to the support of the school or to the support of the prison t support the schools and your children will go Forth us the winds to scatter Over this great Western of knowledge which under your auspices have been gathered but neglect them and the con sequence is that you Lill your prison and when you open Ihu Iron doors and turn them on the world they go out with the scuds of crime ind vice which your avarice and your selfishness has planted and the proceeds of which 3-011 Are forc ing the world to Garner into increased they Are just As Tho pestilent Miasma which i sweeps Down All that is healthful and vigorous. There is Mousy in the prison there is none in the school hut there is that of greater Price than Money and while we want the prison for business advantages we want the schools for a greater. The interests in the Luaine Nancu of the one and the location of and building the Oiler do nol conflict. Ila Lher than neg Lect the school Lei All else go. These remarks we make fur the Especial Ben Colhof those who have shown such a Dilver enl taken prison. In connection with the school and own Peculiar run thug Furi Ovit ones when Iii j for Many years. He Lla Seall Wood is evidently up one much of the and Ila Scall Case and the whole con a ration that Ila Seall owed a debt to Chain Ostrich Sticks in head into the Sand and is whole body concealed. Tie of writing under an assumed name Liulam jul r la at Tho cxpc11sc of Nyrl demanding of others their names in , May i ledges and by an act of ingratitude to those Well be questioned. However in dealing with who i elected him and which perhaps he did t him in his present bad Mode when he is Hunting out in his expressive language one the Man Elk t and frauds ctr practice upon a thirty in a a null Way much allowance must i the spirit of that Charity which it cud i us a lesson thai the Man who Lias to a ii re boy mid risks reputation in hands vill go under without a blubber rising to the i in Earl to have characterized All my i surface to Murk the spot where he went i propose to make the allowance. Perhaps no j person since tic Dawn of creation Ever had More cause to entertain spiteful and revengeful feelings towards Uny two individuals than i h the towards c. L. Murray and Geo Lowell. So far however i have succeeded and particularly m regard to my political Intercourse with them in using them us Well As though none but the most Friendly feelings existed. This i regard As essential to it is however i family fight and we Don t care a Fig which whips but do regret that Charles i Sowull was so treated for such injures any Young Man who is the victim. Goodwin who is the preacher editor of the Indianapolis american published at Indian the Success and Well being of any party. The Apolis took it on himself to be Lac censor of the moment that priv it piques Between Individuate Are allowed to control their political actions that moment All idea of Tho Success of the party upon principle must be Alian Donod. Both the gentle men alluded to above have received my warm political support. The one for the office which lie now occupies and the other for the one which he has recently listed in the into legislature and for which he never could have been nominated but for the Aid of myself and two or three of my particular friends. Ave supported him not be cause worked him personally hut because we then believed him to be a Good Republic a from principle in office or out and because he had been Active Anil energetic in trying to promote Tho Success and welfare of the party. For Rea sons briefly alluded to above i much doubt the propriety of entering upon a newspaper Contro Versy which will necessarily As in Tho Case of frogs in the fable to fun for our enemies but a tub to no one knows better than c. L. Murray the reason Why i took Active part in trying to get Young Chamberlain appointed to West Point and Geo. Howell knows that in Gort nor s Szorc in this town to told me after i explained to him that i had received the same favor of or. 1 lulls and judge Chamberlain and Llinat Loo when 1 a stanch whig and they Strong democrats and stated to him that judge Chamberlain now claimed that i was in. Honor bound to do what i could for him he Lowell said that under those circumstances to could not ask me to re fuse so Plain a duty and both of them know if they have any Conception of an honorable trans action that any other course ought and would have entitled to to the severest censure. To re fuse to pay borrowed allow your surely to pay your refuse to return one favor with another Are justly regarded the world Over As among Tho meanest of transactions. Be sides so far As Tho politics of judge Chamberlain and go. Lowell Are concerned i Soo Little to choose Between them and have not a particle of sympathy with either of them in thus respect so far except As they Border upon being republicans. Goo. Iio Woll said about a year ago when presented with a petition for his signature remove deportment of some of the presbyterian preachers who lately Assembly Al Indianapolis to poured into one because he did t go Accord ing to his Standard about the table fixing an other because he did want a hath and could t get it another because he had to go out of doors to ring the Bell Etc. Now All these things May have proved perplexing to Tho preachers or they have said something about it or Iho lady of the House May have hinted such to some Friend of Goodwin but doubtless never with an idea that any Man would be so trundle Budish As to put such stuff in print. Really it is too Small a business to engage in and then for in editor to do it to ought to be blotted off the list of the Craft and for a preacher to do it nothing Short of divine visitation would do Justice. If Goodwin wants to make a Mark be will have to quit preaching or else say and do things looks More like n preacher to. I ook higher than the Small Steps of any Man or. Goodwin. Get up a Story and your Udell will Shine Bright. You Are entirely too brother Goodwin to he efficient a thing popular in politicians for the people know Bow to take it but in a it is awful. People dig upward for heaven not to the Nadir. See every Day nearly that some four exchanges arc acknowledging the receipt of Lalo papers and in every instance it is about the Only Means one has of judging that a Titi file news paper has entered such offices the news columns Don t show anything of the kind.
