Indianapolis Extra State Sentinel (Newspaper) - September 16, 1842, Indianapolis, Indiana Ext but Tel a Indianapolis. September 16, 1842.v Smith and Wallace. We attended a meeting at the court House on saturday last to listen to the account which these gentlemen had advertised the people would be Given of their doings at Washington. We had another object in View however. We desired to see How much brass it would require to enable men to dare to appear before their betrayed constituents for the purpose even of apologizing for their violation of every profession and Promise they have heretofore Bole Ranly and repeatedly made. Solomon it is said thought there was Quot nothing new under the if he had been at the court House on saturday he would have discovered his mistake. He would then have seen men undertake to make a Merit of their own transgressions and while admitting that every Promise they had made the people had been broken he would have been astonished to hear them coolly propose that the people should still have a Quot generous Confidence Quot in their pretensions. Of the speeches both of Wallace and Smith we have copious notes but we have not room in this paper to publish even if they Are Worth writing out which we think rather doubtful. We shall therefore merely characterize them Here and occasionally hereafter discuss them in Quot broken doses Quot As or. Smith said the Clay whigs administered their potions to the Quot traitor Quot Tyler. Or. Wallace commenced his speech by apologizing for a Quot want of we thought that a queer excuse. Strange a Man should want any Peculiar Quot preparation Quot to enable hit to Tell what he had done during the Long session of Quot nine we thou Glit of the query at the singing party Quot did your Catarrh with you Quot before he got through however we were satisfied the gentleman no sufficiently prepared himself or else that his predicament was in other respects exceedingly unfortunate. Or. Wallace went on however to charge that the fault of the Long session was altogether in the Secretary of the Treasury who a ailed to do his duty in telling the Clay Congress f hat sort of a Revenue Law they should pass he dwelt on this subject at length said they called on the Secretary repeatedly but were unable to get any plan out of him until the 9lh of May and from that time to the adjournment they had been laboriously engaged night and Day in perfecting the Neasure. We thought to ourselves when we considered How frightful it now is after All this three months Quot perfecting Quot that it must have been cur sedly ugly originally to say the least or. Wallace briefly alluded to the Tariff As a Panacea for bad times to the Clarge of Quot heading Captain Tyler Quot whom he thought too Small game to head and concluded As he had hardly reached Home yet that he would defer a More elaborate discussion of All these matters to some More favourable occasion. Or. Smith commenced Bis Cov session by declaring his allegiance to the democratic doctrine of accountability of representatives to their constituents and by assuring those present of his unadulterated patriotism in every other respect the rest of the speech was a series of episodes asserting the extravagance of Van Buren the Quot sneaking treachery Quot of Tyler the extraordinary patriotism of the Clay Congressi and the positive necessity of sustaining a High Tfir Iff to protect the Yankee manufacturers. To find an excuse for the Long session the longest Ever held or. Smith said he must go Back to Van i urn s administration. When Jackson went out a Large sum was in the Treasury. Or. Smith said that or. A an Buren s administration had expended All this Money and had left outstanding at the end of his term 5,000,000 in Treasury notes the. Receipts into the Treasury having been run Down under Clay s Compromise act. Or. Smith forgot by the Way to Tell iwo or. Van Buren spent the surplus Revenue. He forgot to say that it was distributed to the Stales and by most of them Equan overed in the most reckless manner but All this was to have been remedied at the late session and that was the reason Why the members had taken their eight dollars a Day and roast beef for nine Lonoff months list Harrison the lamented Harrison o a had died and the whigs were thrown into strange counsels. He was succeeded by Tyer in whom or. Smith said he had told them he had Confidence but he was Mist Iken altogether had supposed that so much treachery could not have dwelt in the whig3 had held caucuses Vith the object of getting the consent of the president to a fiscal Ity Quot in these caucuses Clay s patriotism shone resplendent by but All without Avail. The democrats had who Vituld even go so far As to crawl into their windows and Beds. For i hese evils or. Smith thought there was no remedy until 1844 should bring it in the election of or. Cd May for whom Pennsylvania and Ohio were about to achieve tremendous victories and in favor of whom the whole nation was about to enact a second edition of the glorious farces of 1840. Nevertheless or. Smith maintained that no apology was necessary for the unprecedented length of life late session. He said that it was with the exception of a few such Thunder claps As Botts and Stanley the Moit patriotic body of men that Ever ats emeled in any country shades of Jefferson Franklin Hancock and Carroll hide your Laurel Feiten Tiaris a rejoice for your Mike Nuoi mud be at hand it >va6 not Only the most Patrio tic but the most industrious it had done More than Ever done at any other Bession More mischief we thought or. Smith was about to say but instead of that he went on to sum up the immense amount of business accomplished he reckoned the work of this most industrious session As follows 1st. The apportionment Bill fixing the ratio of representation for members of Congress. 2d. A Bill reorganizing the Navy. 3d. A Bill reorganizing the army. 4th. The Little Tariff Bill fixed on purpose to coax out a veto 5th. The big Tariff Bill fixed to coax a second veto 6th. The appropriation Bills one of which was to pay these patriotic gentlemen their eight dollars a Day. And lastly the Black Tariff Bill signed by the president the most important Bill passed for the last half Century All this according to or. S. Was work enough for the session Long As it was. But this was not ally they had passed the loan Bills to pay the debts accruing under Clay s Compromise Tariff a Bill to pay old soldiers land instead of Money which can t be borrowed and certain Grants of lands for Indiana though no appropriation for the Cumberland Road. When the president ceases to sneak behind the veto Power and when a High Tariff fills the Treasury then we can come for an appropriation for the Road. The subjects of the Tariff distribution amp a. Were dwelt upon with much vehemence but want of room compels us to Cut Short. The audience present was about 200 in number composed chiefly of the a certain doctor recently disappointed in an application for an appointment from the Quot Captain Quot was quite enthusiastic in his applause whenever Tyler was anathema sized or sneered at and Clay eulogized but generally the affair was tame throughout a reference to ourselves which by the Way we shall attend to created a much stronger sensation than allusions to either Clay or Tyler. T tie contested seat. The Goshen Democrat of the 1st inst., gives the following statement of facts concerning the election for representative in the District of Steuben and Dekalb. Or. Marsh is undoubtedly entitled to the office and we have no doubt the House of representatives will so decide a the circumstances of the Case Are briefly As follows a Henry Shoemaker of Dekalb county a Democrat wishing to vote a portion of both tickets Cut them into four pieces thus making up his ticket headed with Marsh for representative was told that he could not vote the pieces separately and therefore folded them together and voted and this vote was thrown away which if counted would have elected Marsh. Of an examination of the evidence or. Shoemaker made oath to these facts a that he did so vote for Madison Marsh for representative and voted but once. The whig pipe laying inspectors of election testified that there was but one such ticket voted and that was thrown away but had not the heading a for representative or. Shoemaker says positively it was if of headed. A whig by Stander also swore it was riot so headed but admitted on Cross examination Tuat he was so far off that he could not Tell whether ticket was printed or written. The inspectors swore that the ticket was printed in capital left a is when no such tickets were voted at any poll. The whig pipe layers Are therefore floored and we regard the evidence As amply Sui Brient to entitle or. Marsh to his Tariff wheat. The Cincinnati times a whig paper Copia the Fol Loving front the new York express a leading whig Paperi Panew York City of the 31st ult. We Call the attention of our wheat growers to this matter. Brandy a foreign article Quot has gone up suddenly Quot in consequence of the Tariff and wheat has As suddenly Quot come this the flour speculators of course Are very glad of because they Quot prefer that the fall on wheat should be on the Farmer rather than the what do the Farmers say Lathis ? Are they Likely to be a ene fitted by a Tariff that reduces the Price of wheat at this rate Brandy and fl0ur.--the new York express of the 31st ult says a Quot in consequence of the Tariff Brandy has gone up suddenly and holders ask near half a Dollar a gallon More than they did a week ago indeed it is said that a Large Sale has been made tone Dollar and fifty cents per gallon. It is so Long since there has been a speculative spirit in any articles of merchandise that it is quite refreshing to see any description on the Rise. For years past the tendency of every article has been Down Down Down so Low that it seemed that there was no Bottom. Flour it will be seen has fallen again and has now settled below five dollars with every Prospect of it going lower still. Those interested in this great leading article Are very willing it should go Down. This they consider the right time for a fall. They calculated truly that if flour goes Down now when the wheat is in the hands of the Farmers it will carry Down the Price of wheat. They prefer that the fall on wheat should be on the Farmer rather than on the the same cause is producing its effects in Baltimore As will be seen by the following statement of the Market on the 1st instant a flour still tends to decline in Price some sales of Howard Street were made yesterday at .$4,62j holders however ask $4,75. Sales of City Mills took place at $4,75, and of Susquehanna at the same Price Maryland cheats Range from 50 to 90 cents per Bushel As per kind and at Liast. Thurlow Weed the editor of the Albany evening journal the leading Federal paper in the state of new York has the following Quot messes. Smith and Wallace must be careful now How they condemn the Tariff by order of h. Clay. Thurlow is at head quarters and is generally advised in season. Look out for fun and another split in the Federal party. Hurra now for that two dollars a Day and roast beef Hurra for those Good times they must surely be at hand if they Don t come remember who promised them. From the Albany evening journal of aug. 30, we copy we Triumph thanks joyous and grateful thanks to a devoted whig Congress one great measure of Relief has been carried out one of the reforms for we Rich the people put Down Van Bure ism has been accomplished. We have by the perseverance of an indomitable whig Congress obtained a protective Tariff. Manufacturers mechanics labourers agriculturists rejoice the loom and the shuttle will hum again the Hammer s Din and the anvils Sparks will again be heard and seen the labourer will now find employment for his hands and food for his family the Farmer will find a Market for his wheat and his Wool . We have not calculated the matter our be Pes but we have heard it said that each member of the Coon Congress will get in payment for his official services about the sum of five thousand dollars. That s doing a pretty fair business these hard times any How but As a correspondent of the n. Y. Post says jesting aside it is said to be a fact that during the session of the year 1815, when each member received a fixed salary of $1600 for the year the Public business was transacted with such despatch that for the last three Days of that session there remained nothing to which Congress could turn its hands. There can be Little doubt that if the Public could have compounded with this Congress so As to have got them off on the first of april last both parties the Public and the Niem bets would have been great gainers by the Reform. The Coons in Congress have adjourned. Contrary to expectation our members have found their Way Home. This is accounted for by supposing they could hear our crowing which gave them the direction. The feds have kept Congress in session 13 out of 17 months and if the people Are benefited we should like to know it. They have tried to head Captain Tyler and he has knocked the whole party on the head. Or. Clay says they must come Home and Reudi ats the Tariff Bill though it is the same one but slightly amended which they had before made. They Don pc like the idea of making Tea and Coffee cheap. Wonder what they will Promise the people to elect or. Clay suppose he should turn out traitor if elected he has once turned and can easily do it again 1 o that Reform ithe South. How does the South relish the Buck Tariff fixed upon them by the Clay federalists ? the Charleston Mercury Speaks of it As follows a the obligations of the Compromise act from this time Forth have ceased. The manufacturers have madly broken their guaranty have trampled upon All their pledges have scorned the obligations of Faith repeatedly pledged have thrown their whole interests into the caldron of political agitation have wittingly and deliberately adopted the Rule that on this question of Revenue and Protection might makes rights my let them take the consequences they have outlawed themselves and there is henceforth no Trust to be put in their words their pledges Are to be regarded As Bald devices of treachery their claims Are those of wolves upon lambs their vested rights Are such As thieves have in the pockets of travellers. Let the blight of devouring selfishness and foul perfidy rest upon them forever climb Gre of Quot Dune. On learning the result of the recent election in a few of the Southern counties of Alabama the my bile advertiser thus glorifies a Quot it is worthy of remark and we refer to the fact with Peculiar Pride and pleasure that this Battle has been fought under the glorious Banner of Henry Clay the whig candidates were nominated by the Clay club an throughout the whole canvass that Banner has been boldly unfurled and nobly and fearlessly sustained the result then is a most triumphant Victory tor the cause of Harry of the West a a Brilliant Clay Victory Quot and alas the next number comes out with a doleful looking profile of the renowned Quot Gen eral apathy Quot whose doings among the Farmers and planters of the state have ruined All the Clay prospects forever. Awful Vicissitudes says the Balti More Argus. An interest ii in correspondence has taken place Between or. Fox the British minister and or. Webster ill which the latter acknowledges the receipt of six Gold medals from her majesty s govern ment bearing Thuc Poi trait of her majesty the Queen which the Bri i by government desire to present to the commander of several United states vessels in acknowledgement of the services Reader 0 5"we Ufa Terstand it is expected that the Vene Able sex president Adams will be at Indianapolis on the 5th of october. Should he come it is t be hoped that he May be induced to pay us of old Tippecanoe a visit. We believe the Man eloquent Quot has never visited the great West tip 7/ Pecante journal. J a a very pretty accompaniment truly. As much As we dislike the politics of Henry Clay As Dejter mined As we Are to fight to the last gasp a Anifet them believing if carried out they would be ruinous to our country and its institutions yet we could not we would not so far encourage an open traitor to our country As to do indirectly Honor to Adams. That he would appropriate to himself a share of the honors intended to be conferred on or. Clay is certain. That if alone he would travel the West with other than feelings of Abhorrence we do not believe. His open declared treason advocacy of a dissolution will never be forgotten by the hoosiers. His playing into the hands of. The British by sending Forth a. Report of an Amer can Congress full of spite and bile declaring that an american president ought to be impeached yet the proper tribunal for want of grounds was not Able to do it would be sufficient to Damn any Man to infamy. If president Tyler has done any thing worthy of impeachment and his former friends now his bitterest foes say he has Why Don t they come Forward and prefer their charges 1 it is not patriotic or America to Send Forth to the world that any Man is a Rascal much less a president of the United states without a particle of proof to sustain the charge. How derogatory then to an sex president of the United states John Quincy Adams like an old fellow up North. Called Vockey we consider in Charity to be politically insane. Adams never was elected by the people. He was made president by a Bare faced. Fraud and or. Clay could if he would give the particulars. He is the Only Man As yet who has Ever held that High office who has disgraced it. Had he retired with dignity the manner in which he obtained the office would have been forgotten a with him. This was impossible. His spiteful nature has caused him frequently to thrust his Viper us sting into the bosoms of his 7io�> friends. For this he was punished by being compared by them to a run a Way thief rewarded by being put Forward to do the dirty work which better men disdained. And we Are called upon to do Honor to what is called Quot old Man eloquent Quot than whom a More vile slanderous wicked speaker is not to be found in the american Congress. If or. Semans is a disunion st or an abolition amalgamation st. He will not like our warmth but if he is an Amer can and in favor of his country he will review that wish of his and come to a different conclusion. It May be said that we ought to Honor the Man for the office he has held. True. But every general Rule has an exception and this we believe to be an exception. Were his father living notwithstanding a Peculiar opinions of republicanism of gag Laws alien and sedition Laws the latter of which were it in Force would have found the head of his son on the highest Pinnacle of the Capitel and should visit the great West we would be found among the Foremost to do him Honor. His we Are More than half inclined to believe were or. Rows of the head rather than errors of. The heart. But for his son John a. Adams we have no feeling. We believe that not Tea men in Indiana could be found who would not at the first intimation of peril to their country shoulder their trusty rifles determined to Quot do or How then can it be expected that they should show honors to a Man who has expressly declared himself inimical to it to John Quincy Adams i it is not by saying Quot Loncy Honey Quot that a Sweet Edby them in saying the lives seamen Comei of the a Outh.
