Indianapolis Extra State Sentinel (Newspaper) - September 16, 1842, Indianapolis, Indiana
5 the Coon Congress a i the Coon Congress having exhausted the trea tory have at aet started of Home just in time for Many of them to Reaph the end journeys and a it Pepsi to go Back Igudin. This gets double mileage. This is Reform. This is the retrenchment promised. The correspondent of the Ohio statesman in a communication of 31st of August gives the following condensed report of the last proceedings adjourned si7ie die nine months precisely. Long session Long Bill of expenses Short amount of work but one Bill for the Public Good and that a tax Bil and that forced upon the whigs by Captain Tyler. This is the Sura of the whole matter. The Senate passed to Day the Bill authorizing an Issue of $6,000,000 in Treasury notes and the Bill to re organize the Navy department and a great amount of local secondary or private Bills passed both houses. A Resolution was offered in the House allowing a trifle in the Way of extra pay to the House clerks doorkeeper sweepers pages a so. Which would have been adopted by almost unanimous consent but for the opposition of or. Black of georgia., by calling for the ayes and noes moving to Lay on the table and so on he staved off the Resolution. During the proceedings upon it or. Gushing or. Mckennan and others went up to or. Black and privately expostulated with him but unavailing by. At last the Little pages orphan boys As they Are went in a body to or. Black and appealed against his opposition to the extra trifle pro deed to be Given them of some Twenty five or dollars apiece. But the unfeeling Man with third the his a ight dollars per Day was immovable Resolution was lost. A joint Resolution was passed to Day appropriating $6,000 for expenses incurred in the release of the Santa be prisoners citizens of the United states. Hon. A a. Adams is spoken of As contemplating a breach of the peace from a declaration that he was ready to stand by the responsibility of his report on the veto in the House As Well As it was inferred from this that the Vener table gentleman held himself ready to meet the amiable Captain if necessary on the Field and there was. Some apprehension entert ined among the lamp Krs on this morning that the order Loving or. A ams would be arrested and bound Over to keep be. But he be Brinni it is strange the fix that Federal whig Gery is in. Every Day brings Foith some new fruits. We believe it is the Luckiest thing for the country that its finances Are at so Low an ebb that is while the Coons Are in Power. Were the Treasury full As in the Days of democracy we should expect to see cookery without leaders. They would shoulder the Cash and Swartwout. Quot every time one has a Chance he nabs. The Cadiz o. Sentinel gives the following. It will Bear us out in our opinion. What think the people of the promises of Coon skin whig Gery 1 a Federal postmaster in limbo some weeks ago the Federal postmaster at Londonderry Guernsey county Ohio was Cli urged with rifling themal of $155, belonging to the Hon. Daniel Kilgore of this place and examined upon said charge before judge Leavitt of Steubenville who bound him Over for his appearance at the next term of the United slates court to be held at Columbus. Upon his failing to find bail he was committed to jail to await his trial. From All the circumstances in the Case there can be no doubt of his guilt. It is not the first time he has been suspected for opening letters. Some three years ago before he was turned out by Amos Kendall or. Thomas Nickel charged him with opening a Large letter but which happened to contain no Money for which he sued him and recovered s5 dollars. About the same time William Nickel a son of Thomas Nickel was sued for making the same charge and fined Only 6 cents which he paid off with a Benton mint drop. Shortly after this and upon the representation of the facts in the Case Amos Kendall made him walk the Plank and put an honest Man in his place. But when federalism got the Ascendancy the honest Democrat was turned out to make room for the Federal partizan who is now reaping the Reward of his dishonesty in the Steubenville jail. Such is whig Gery what a lawyer should Are indebted to or. Hamilton of Concord n. H., for a copy of a charge to the grand jury upon the uncertainty of the Law and tiie duties of those concerned in the administration of it by chief Justice Parker chief Justice we presume of new Hampshire though it is not so written Down. Among the Many Good things it contains there is nothing better than the following which we find in a note Page ill Boston courier. In the Quot character of an honest lawyer Quot printed in 1779, it is said among Oiler things that to is Quot one that practices the Law so As not to forget the gospel but always wears a conscience As Well As a gown. He Weig is tie cause More than Gold and if that will not Bear the touch his generous scorn puts Back the fee. Oliou go he knows All the criticisms of his faculty and the Nice snapper does of practice yet he never uses them unless in a defensive Way to plots of knavery for he affects not the Devilish skill of out baffling right nor Aims at the Sli Ameul glory of making a bad cause Good but with equal contempt hates the Wolf s study and the dog s eloquence and disdains to grow great by crimes or build himself a Fortune on the spoil of the oppressed or the ruin of the widow and orphan. He has More reverence for his profession than to Debauch it for unrighteous purposes and had rather be dumb than suffer his Tongue to Pimp for injustice or club his parts to bolster up a cheat with the legerdemain of foreign news. A the steamships last arrived bring 13 Days later news a from Europe. A the arrival in London of an accredited agent front thei x. United states government for the purpose of contracting loan of twelve millions of dollars is not liked and it confidently asserted in Well informed quartets that he y will wholly foil in the object of his Mission. In the neighbourhood of Birmingham Staffordshire and other parts of the manufacturing districts there have been some rather serious outbreaks Thich have required the greatest Energy and exertion on the part of the magistracy to suppress. The latest accounts however inform us that the rioters were coming to terms. Or. Cobden declared in the House of commons that in one part they exhumed a cow which had died of disease and devoured the carion the remains of which the Farmer was obliged to have immediately re interred As the effluvia arising therefrom was actually dangerous to the health of his establishment. This fact proved to be unfortunately most authentically supported. Sir Robert Peel in his late extraordinary speech on the revision of the British Tariff remarked that his proposed reduction of the duty upon cured fish by which the condition of the poor would be greatly alleviated was very warmly opposed by a Man extensively engaged in the herring fishery in the Island of Jersey who very frankly wrote to him he was in favor of free Trade in every thing but hearings. Hera is the secret out. I mistook it was your Bull that gored my of a said the impartial magistrate that alters the Case entirely. Tie Obio Ali Ign revolution i Iff fit of the whig papers in this state uphold the late rebellious and revolutionary movement of their party in Ohio. We do not know of a single whig paper that has had the honesty or the patriotism to rebuke it. This shows to what a fearful extent the whig papers Are bound by party shackles and How Little their editors permit themselves to exercise an unbiased judgment. This Isa Logen really the Case throughout the country but there Are some honorable exceptions. Two or three fed Era papers have unqualified Day condemned the Dis organizing and anarchical move irent alluded to among others the new York american a leading whig paper Speaks As follows a secession of the whig members of the ipg Slature is revolution and revolution unjustifiable Btu the came. We deeply lament that whigs have Given such an example of disregard of Law and order. Quot we have All stigmatized the Loco focus of ten a tie see for their disregard to the Constitution and of their oaths in refusing to elect senators to Congress. Quot the whigs of Ohio have thrown even this Anar Quot phial preceding in the Shade. We deeply regret it. Quot the electors gave the Power to the opposite party. If that Power is abused the remedy is in the Luot boxes not Federal Reform. The following is a specimen of the Beautiful Federal Reform in the Post office. We Don t blame the department As a Clay Coon would have done in similar circumstances nor do we think John Tyler should answer for this sin. But we think the w. U. Democrat from which we copy should have slave by was occasioned by a concurrence of circumstances and by it alone can be obviated. Necessity caused and necessity must destroy it. It is a great object and can be set in motion but by the United Effort of causes adequate to produce the effect. No plan yet conceived is adequate to the exigency of tie Case. Many Good men have enlisted on both sides of the subject and while they have manifested the goodness of their hearts have generally exhibited the littleness of their minds. Slavery will with dirt any trouble pass away with its necessity. How when 1 is not in the Compass of finite minds. But How Little does it become England to interfere England whose principle it is to Quot tax and bind her colonies in All cases England who has established the doctrine of monopolies and who would monopolize the Ocean England who is enslaving starving and destroying ninety millions of asiatics England who is seeking to wage a War with China because she will manage her own municipal concerns a England who has lately Ost of Tett Jedias remaining ill the Post office at Indianapolis Indiana september 1, 1842.

How does this attitude correspond with the present position of the great lawyer Quot he could not help thinking there had been want of boldness on the part of the administration. He most devoutly prayed there might be no report to arms but in the present position of affairs he would say if the matter were not settled by the 4th of july next he would take the territory and say to them drive us from it if you can Quot dolls of Wall paper in the office directed to her from her husband stating that she received a line from or.

We Werly lately looking Over a whig song Hook of 1840. Where we found the following very neat a Huplet a a a a with tres ii till a a amp Vaone and True the Battle is won by old tip Pecimon j. Q. Adams and the Constitution. A correspondent of the n. Y. Mercury in order to exhibit the inconsistency of the recent proposition of or. Adams to expunge the veto Power from the Constitution quotes from a discourse delivered by him in 183&, before the new York historical society on the 50th anniversary of our Independence. Or. Adams he says dwelt at some length on the excellence of our Constitution the Wisdom and virtue that were combined in creating and adopting it and urged that it should be held in love and reverence by the whole country through All Ages. To Mark his Strong sense of the sacred character of this Constitution he made a direct comparison Between it and the covenant which god made with the israelite. The following is his language. A when the children of Israel after forty years of wandering were about to enter the promised land their Leader Moses commanded that when god should have brought them into the land they should put Trio curse upon mount Ebal and to e blessings upon mount Ger Izima and when they had taken Possession of the land Joshua built an altar to the lord and in the presence of All Israel he read All the words of the Law of Moses with the blessings to those who conformed to it and curses to those who did or. Adams then said Quot fellow citizens the Ark of your covenant is the declaration of Independence. Your mount Ger Zim is the Constitution of the United states. There is not a Blessing or a curse pronounced against the israelite which you May not enjoy or suffer from your adhering to or departure from the principles of the Constitution. Lay up these principles in your hearts and in your souls. Teach them to your children when rising up and when lying Are we to suppose the above to be Al bombast and Moonshine that or. Adams did not mean a word he said not we must suppose he was sincere that he had such a deep respect and reverence for the Constitution that he would rather die than attempt to mar and deface it. Having such impressions of what were my. Adams s feelings when he delivered this address i could not but Call to mind the astonishment and horror of Moses when he found that Aaron his Faith Quot and made a Golden calf for Tho people to the astonishment of Moses could hardly have been greater Han mine when i read or. Adams s proposition to the United states to to mine their excellent con Titi Ion by destroying one of its most essential Yob an t melons under one Arm. A to demonstrate to the world that free labor is cheaper than slave labor and nobody will Purchase a slave when he can hire a servant at less Sun. of the Demmi who flourished at Vienna in the beginning of the 14th Century was the first Painter who by Way of explanation put scrolls in the Mouths of figures a practice Wlinich became afterwards not uncommon a piece of his is now existing wherein the Devil almost expiring from the severe Pursuit of a Saint exclaims. Quot of 1 it is All Over with me Quot a portrait of his infernal majesty proved fatal to Spinello Aretini an artist of Arezzo in the same age. He had drawn the Prince of darkness under a form to exquisitely hideous that he could never erase the idea from his mind. One night a dream represented to his affrighted imagination that awful spirit under the same horrid form standing before him in a menacing position and reproaching him for having made so homely a likeness. Spinello awoke in an agony of dread he had barely senses left to Tell the tale before his reason a gave Way and for the Short time he survived,.a fearful insanity never left him. Boston paper recommends the formation of an association of business men to adopt measures for the arrest and punishment of counterfeiters the Banks throughout the Union should have formed an association Long ago. The Western institutions Are especially concerned in this matter. The increase of counterfeits in this country is indeed frightful. Quot Bicknell Detector Quot for the present month contains descriptions of forty new frauds in paper Money. The entire list As Given in the same publication is of alarming Atren Gih these facts however have no weight with the Banks for they Are no losers by counterfeiters and the Community Only suffers. Indeed we have known instances in this City in which Large counterfeiters of the notes of Banks no father off than Philadelphia and Albany arrested it great trouble personal risk of life and pecuniary Cost to our police officers have regained their Liberty and escaped punishment through the beggarly spirit of the institutions counterfeited upon. They had not even Public spirit enough to Send a witness or two to this City to establish the forgery and ensure the conviction of the culprits it is in vain to Hope for Quot any such Protection As is contemplated at the hands of the Banks. If. Their own interest were to be served something might be hoped from them but As Long As the Public Only Are the sufferers you might As Well expect blood from a turnip As Protection from the Banks though they Are the prime cause Kcf All the mis York Sun.
