Front the democratic pharos feb. 5. Peetz feb y 2. A i see in your paper of the 28th of january last the proceedings of a meet ing purporting to be held at this place on the 26th jan., headed Public meeting in relation to the Peru land office frauds in the reported proceedings above alluded to my name appears prominently connected with other individuals who Are charged with having committed a fraud upon the land office. In the first place i am charged with being bribed by a. W. Morekis that he might the More effectually accomplish his purpose in the Purchase of canal lands. Now i have to say the that i have made strict inquiry of a majority of those persons whose names appear in the reported proceedings and so far As i have been Able to ascertain their sentiments on that Point they universally disavow the charge thus preferred against me but attribute it wholly to the hallucination of one John Quot a. Weight who sometimes Calls himself judge Wright and particularly in these proceedings that he in one of his intervals of insanity As i am told they come every change of the Moon and this was about the new Moon arrayed himself in one of his revolutionary movements conveyed himself to this place and called a meeting under some excitement a Labouring As he did under the aberration of mind appointed officers reported him a Elf As having been called on to state the object of the meeting then erected himself into a committee of the whole on a late Law of the legislature subjecting All the Wabash and Erie canal lands on which neither principal or interest has teen paid for two years last past to private entry. The said John then appoint himself several committees for various purposes one of which we to break open the land office and take out All the Ino Ney and place it in the hands of a third person to be recovered Only at the end of an execution. The clerk of the land office was compelled by his threats to surrender up the keys of the office and the books and papers have been taken from the office which As yet i have not been Able to recover nor ascertain where they Are. It is said by some that this Man. Judge Wright opened the office and took the books and desired very much to open the Safe and abstract the funds. This notable judge then appointed a committee to do certain acts of violence and said if they were indicted he would put their Fine to one cent and petition the governor and compel him to remit that. Then he makes himself a committee to prepare an address and read and published to the world As the vigorous production of this insane judge at the head of a under the mild and patriotic garb of doing the state some service Quot of excellent judge thou Art a second Daniel come to judgment r the whole transactions on the part of this delectable Man and some of his compatriots in the cause show an elevated state of morals. In this matter of charging me with having been bribed into the service of those men i hurl it Back into their Teeth. It May be a familiar term with the judge and the sex senator who composed a part of the committee to prepare the address. They May be in Possession of some practical knowledge in the business of bribery but i will say to those gentlemen that it has no allurements for me. I desire not to be personal in a newspaper controversy but when men who claim Fiji themselves a High standing in society undertake the nefarious business of waging War on my character in order to. Cover up their own sin and iniquity whereby they May escape detection for the grossest ignorance and claim exemption from the charges of Rasca Lity by an attempt to Point the Finger of scorn at me i shall not be silent. There Are two other gentlemen that i am compell to notice we visited is is place from fort Wayne. They Are distinguished men in their own estimation that is to say we. G. Ewing and or. Switser who immortalized themselves alike with the Noble judge and sex senator in this matter of personal abuse against me this Man Ewing if i recollect right is of Coon skin memory which has Given him a name and a Fame throughout the length and breadth of Indiana. This or. Switser is known Best by the appellation of being Quot the Friend of the poor indians Quot and very nearly Rode his horse to death to reach the payment ground to defend their rights. But soon after reaching the ground the claims of the indians were deferred and made to give place to a horse of another color. I have been forced into this defence vol. I. Indianapolis Friday Karch 13, 1846. No. 26. Selves up As a kind of dictators and Safe guards to the country As the most convenient Mode to acquire a kind of Mush room popularity clothed in the garb of the demagogue. Who does not believe that either of these men would take the last foot of land they could acquire by any foul Means whatever a a the remainder of the delegation that was Here from fort Wayne demeaned themselves in a very gentlemanly manner As i am informed for which they have my thanks. But will any person be surprised when it is reported Here that messes. and Switser were anxious to break open the Safe in the land office and abstract the funds under the honest pretence of taking better care of them in their own pockets ? now if i have said anything about and respecting those individuals which Appertains to their moral character and their standing in society that is not True it is for the reason that Public sentiment which has been spoken very freely for the last Day and a half in my hearing has misled me. I will now come to the Point that pertains to my conduct in the administration of the Law passed at or near the close of the last sitting of the legislature of the stale of Indiana compelling the superin Dent of the Wabash and Erie canal to sell All the forfeited lands to the first applicant. In relation to this the Public were made to believe. That i participated in bringing about the Law As it now is and saw it willingly carried into execution none of which is the fact. I regret exceedingly that it was and is the Law. To show that i have a different feeling on the subject i Here insert an extract from my annual report which shows the View i took of the unguarded situation of the forfeited lands Quot while on the land subject it is not improper perhaps for mention to be made of one other sub subject that greatly interests those who Are purchasers of lands belonging to the state and that is that some of those lands have within the last three months become Abr felted and others been subject to heavy penalties for the non pay melts of the principal and interest. The Law As it now is provides and directs those lands to the sold again to the first applicant. Owing to the Peculiar situation of the matter and the circumstances that surround a course of that kind there has been none of them sold As yet. Many of those lands that Are Sufle red to forfeit have Large and valuable improvements on them and were they suffered to be entered by the first applicant they would in All cases so far As the facts have been developed fall into the hands of speculators without any obligation to pay the occupant for his improvement and in the operation the slate would lose the Benefit of the improvement. Quot the result of a practice so much at War with what Are conceived to be the rights of the settlers that it would in the end Lead to endless legislation in this that those settlers and it May be said original purchasers of these lands who were thus turned out of their Homes after having paid apportion on their Landa and alter having made Large improvements the result would naturally Lead to numerous petitions being Laid before the legislature from year to year for their Relief saying that they had paid so much for their Landa and made Large improvements and another individual by an act of the Leisla Ture had been made to profit on their labor. 1 hese matters Are mentioned Here and it is hoped not out of place for the reason that such is the every Day talk m the Region of country where these lands lie Quot it is therefore earnestly recommended that a Law be passed subjecting ail lands that Are now or do hereafter become forfeited on a certain Day in each year to be sold at Public Sale first the person having charge of the land office to give four weeks notice in the newspapers at the seat of government and some three or four other ones Witt in the land District. In that event the state will in All cases be Able to realize the full value of her lands and All improvements thereon by inviting a fair Competition in purchasers. Whereas it is now the Case that not More than one or two persons know of these forfeitures. The Only lands that Are inquired for now Are those that Are forfeited with the Hope of obtaining them without Competition. I he sales of any such have been thus far suspended until the matter could be Laid before the legislature. Should the legislature think however that there should be no action on it the Opportunity will immediately be Given to any person wishing to enter them. In that however there is no difficulty to find purchasers Quot this part of my report shows the position i took in behalf of the settlers on the canal lands. I urged from time to time the passage of a Law in conformity to the foregoing report and finally thought i had attained the end for which i contended. But a subsequent act was passed making it my imperative duty to permit the lands to be entered. I knew not of this Law until after it was passed and Laid before me. 1 was sick at and near the close of the session which rendered it impossible As some think i should have done for me to detect it while pending in the legislature but that was a matter for the members. I Hope it will not be contended that members of the legislature shall be permitted to excuse themselves on the score of ignorance and that All the bad consequences attending it shall be attributed to me for not nullifying it. If the Law carries fraud on its face that fraud should have been detected at an earlier Date by those who acknowledge to have read and voted for it. The representative who introduced it and col. Rebuen who acknowledges that he read and voted for it it is fair to presume should take some responsibility in the matter. Ignorance May come in for a reasonable share of the blame but knavery prompted by a Demon like disposition to make those suffer whose Only duty it is to administer the Law will in the end claim the greater portion. There Are some men that care not How much discredit they reflect on others so they can escape responsibility. That i am told is the character of this Man col. Reyburn whose constituents feel themselves aggrieved at the unprotected situation in which their lands were left and his advocacy of a Law in full View of All its practical results the immediate Sale of All the forfeited lands in his District. If such men can in their sanctimonious capacity pull the Wool Over the eyes of their constituents and locate the blame in another Quarter under the plea of ignorance i will say for one that i will not be held responsible. In All that i have done i take the re against a set of desperadoes who set them a possibility. It is the duty of the legis lature to pass Laws and after they Are passed i have not the Power to say which one i would execute and which i would not and in particular on this occasion it was made imperative. The letter that this Man. Judge Wright As he Calls himself talks so much about As having been written by me to the clerk of the land office was written just As i was leaving Indianapolis and not at the request of or. Morris nor of any other individual More than that the Law after being enrol and signed was shown to me and it was said a copy would be placed in my hands so As to go into immediate operation. I declined taking the Law As i was then bound for Home and wrote the letter in question. The draft is spoken loudly about. As to that it was my own property and shows on its face for what it is issued. It is an allowance for some extra services. No civil proceedings can for a moment Call in question nor would they do if my right to dispose of my own property but it is a fit subject for a mob whose Only province it is to disregard All civil rights. I did not even sell this draft to Morris but to another Man. I never spoke to or. Morris during the Winter nor he to me on that or any other subject All of which he will Bear me out in saying. In conclusion i will say that i regret the disposition to take Well improved farms manifested by those who made purchases the Law is not so objectionable where it applies to those lands owned by speculators. There Are Many of the lands in question claimed by tax titles and they Are insisted upon As being Good. Some of these tax title men Are loudest in their complaints because they cannot hold the lands in fee simple for the taxes. This is consistency with a vengeance in Justice to the people of Peru i can say they have treated me kindly so far As my person is concerned. One would have supposed from the published proceedings which have gone abroad that they were ready to devour me at first sight but i am informed that this bombast was All the effusion of this Man. Judge Wright so called and those two heroes from fort Wayne Ewing and Switser who Are always Brave at a distance. As Many editors of newspapers As have spoken in the matter and inserted the proceeding of the meeting at this place will in Justice give this article of defence a place in their columns As it is the last i expect to make before the meeting of the legislature at which time i shall feel bound to Lay the matter before that body. I remain very respectfully e. F. Lucas horrible treatment of the nans of st. Basilius. In the City of Minsk in 1837, there existed a Convent of nuns of the order of st. Basilius. The order was somewhat analogous to that of the Quot Sisters of Charity Quot their chief duties being attendance on the sick and the education of poor children. The emperor Nicholas hav in determined to convert All the members of other religious sects in his Empire to the greek Church directed Semasko the Bishop of the diocese in which Minsk was situated to conform to this Resolution and to compel All others under his authority to do so. Semasko readily obeyed and directed the nuns of st. Basilius accordingly but they refused. For what followed we refer our readers to the following extract from a work recently published at London entitled Quot Eastern Europe and the emperor we Ventu re to say they have not often perused so horrible a narrative of occurrences in real life or even in Romance. Irena pieces las was the Superior of the Convent. She was one of the four who escaped a Louisville Democrat. Quot three Days after the refusal of the Superior to apostate be Semasko came with a detachment of soldiers to turn the Sisters out of the Convent. Such was the violence employed such the terror aspired by the account of the Universal persecution that a sick nun of their number fell and expired upon the pavement of the Chapel. Quot the remainder were heavily ironed hand and foot and marched to Vitebsk where they were placed in a russian Convent of Quot Black Quot these Black sisterhood which May in some measure be compared to our penitentiaries Are places of Refuge for the widows of private soldiers and receptacles for the most disorderly prostitutes. Quot Here the thirty three nuns of st. Basilius from Minsk met with fourteen More of their order transferred from another Convent to this abode where for two years they were kept at hard labor chained in couples and exposed to All the Malignity of the depraved associates with whom these women of gentle birth were thus forcibly mingled. Quot in 1839, All other a fibres having failed to shake their Resolution they were transferred to another russian Convent of Black Sisters in the City of Polock. Hero they met with ten More nonconformist nuns of the same order. The whole number of these women fifty seven were now brought up twice a week on wednesdays and fridays before a commission of the russian authorities and clergy and flexed before them receiving fifty strokes a piece. Quot this was continued for months together till the wounds upon their backs were an open sore and pieces of the scabs and then of the raw flesh adhered to the instruments of torture. Three of their number died beneath this infliction. Quot they were then fed on Salt Herrings and refused drink a favorite russian Mode of torture except on the condition ofrap<x3tiu y. This punishment which it Appeal they found the most difficult to Bear ufos superseded by a system of starvation. They were Only fed once every other by and driven to eat Nettles and fodder of the Convent cattle. Quot they were employed to dig out Clay and not understanding How to conduct an excavation the Earth fell in and buried five of their number. With incredible barbarity the russian authorities not Only re fused to dig them out but prevented the naps from attempting to extricate their comp ions. They perished in this self dug grave. Quot the next labor in which the survivors were employed was to Aid the masons in constructing a Palace for the renegade Bishops Quot Stii i the polish Gentry whose spirit no Terro will quell coming to look on one of their number addressed some words of Consolation to these poor within Lur and Twenty hours not Only this Impi Dent individual but All those around ton disappeared. Quot theft Ling of a Wall in the midst of the nuns injured Many and killed eight of them outright. A ninth and tenth soon after pens Quot Abolt this period several monks of st. Basilius were brought to the same Convent. A their treatment is described As having been More barbarous than that of the mass. Four of these men Zaweckis Kome Zilewicz and Buczynski by name All ups of seventy years of age were at last Jim the full severity of Winter stripped and placed under a pump where As the water was poured Over them it or Ual i of sealed into a mass of ice and froze them to death another named the Abl a Laudanski aged and infirm whilst Sto ering beneath a Load of firewood we struck upon the head with such violence let a a Drunken Deacon that his Skull was fractured and he died upon the spot. Quot it happened that one of these surviving Mon of st. Basilius succeeded in making i escape and Semasko irritated by this incident resolved to conquer the the nuns and publishing that the Irene about to read their recantation eau a them to be forcibly led by the Solc fiery to the portals of tha russian Church the curiosity which this announcement caused led the whole population of tie City of Polock to assemble not Withus Ding the examples which had been Mdse of those who had dressed theft in Fry Witri tfx ii Sferes Quot the apostate Bishop. In his episcopal garments advanced towards the nuns and bidding the soldiers to leave his dear Sisters at Liberty spoke to them with paternal kindness then offering his hand to their Superior prepared to Lead her into the Church. Irena Mieceslaw then seizing one of the hatchets used by the carpenters who had been working at the re ration of the Church called out to All ler nuns to Kneel and addressing Semasko told him after having been their Shepherd to become the executioner of Hose whom he had not already done to death and to strike of their Heads before the threshold of the Temple which their footsteps would have voluntarily crossed. Quot so galling was the provocation of this rebuke to the russian Bishop that unable to contain himself he struck the Superior on the face and then Flung the axe indignantly from him. It chanced in falling to wound one of the nuns in the foot and a moment after the Superior having put her hand to her Mouth which was filled with blood Drew out one of her shattered Teeth and holding it up to him said a take it it will earn you some fresh order from the emperor Quot this Public defeat of the russian Bishop and authorities was however revenged on these poor women by an act of such diabolical Malignity As Only the most undeniable evidence can Render creditable. Quot when the russian soldiers and newly made deacons had been made drunk by Brandy All these helpless nuns were turned out amongst them As incurably obstinate to treat As they thought fit. Then commenced a scene worthy of pandemonium the shrieks and prayers of the victims mingled with the oaths blasphemies and rib Aldry of the crowd to whose brutal lust they were abandoned. Quot when the fury and lust of those demons in human form had been exhausted it was discovered that two of those Munfor nate females were quite dead. The Skull of one of these had been crushed by the stamping on the temples of an Iron plated Heel. The other was trampled into a Uch a mass of mud and Gore that even its human character was scarce recognizable. Eight others had one or several Bones broken or their eyes torn or trodden out. Of the whole number the Superior a woman of Iron Frame As Well As indomitable Resolution fared the Best but she was not allowed to attend or console her mutilated Sisters except on the condition of apostasy. Quot they were afterwards marched out of Polock by night on foot and chained two by two even those whose eyes had been torn out and whose hideous wounds were festering. Those whose legs were broken or who were lamed were sent Forward in carts under it cossacks. Quot a gentleman of to a a m. Walenko Witch having ordered a funeral service to be read for these victims was seized in the Middle of the night and Lent to Siberia his property being confiscated. A monastery of dominican monks in another part of the country having ventured to Pray for them was immediately dispersed. Quot on reaching Medz Ioly the nuns were again imm ured in a Convent of the Black sisterhood and divided into four parties. Here they were put into sacks and towed after boats in the water which was allowed to Rise to their Mouth and nose. Three More of their number perished in this manner either from cold or fear or drowned 1 y incessant immersion. The inhabitants of Medz Ioly carried off their bodies in the night As the earthly Coil of holy martyrs which men would someday venerate and hold precious. Quot after two More years Captivity of the fifty eight nuns thirty four from Minsk fourteen from Vitebsk and ten from Polock Only fourteen survived and of these eight were either lame or blinded. Quot the Superior Irena Mieceslaw who had fared the Best had an open wound from which she was obliged to extract with her fingers the carious Bones and which afterwards becoming filled with Worms from want of dressing caused her intense agony. Quot at length some relaxation of vigilance having opened a Prospect of escape this courageous woman persuaded three of her companions to attempt it with her. In this Enterprise these four women All succeeded enfeebled by disease As they were and without Money and passports at a distance of Between two or three Hundred Miles from the austrian and prussian frontiers. Quot at the commencement of the pro sent year profiting by the scene of riot and drunkenness to which the Saint s Day of the prot Pope of the Convent had Given occasion they effected their escape. Leaping Down a High Wall into the Snow they alighted in safety and immediately fell on their Knees in thanksgiving. They then separated to facilitate their flight. The Superior in the midst of All the severity of the season was driven to hide for Days in the Woods without other food than Ber miss or any thing to quench her thirst but Snow.-. Once driven to extremity she knocked at the door of a wealthy looking Houe and being received with veneration by its owner was provided with Money provisions and a Correct map of her route. She crossed the Frontier disguised As a Shepherd but even then was not in Selt rity As the cowardly govern Rient of Prussia gives up even its own subjects to the Czar. Quot not until she had reached Posen i the midst of a polish population did she feel in Security and Here she is Jinobu to Zivaly hrs of the Quot Sisters of Charity but she was considered too precious As a living testimony of the horrors daily perpetrated in that Golgotha which the Frontier of Russia encircles to be left in retirement. With her scars wounds and personal evidence she has been wisely forwarded to Paris where a deputation recently waited on her to express their sympathy with her cruel treatment. From thence she proceeded on the 10th of october to Rome where she was received in the most distinguished manner by the Pope and cardinals. In Posen she had been joined by the sister War Zecka and shortly afterwards Learned that the other two had in like manner escaped the Pursuit of the re Ian authorities and been safely forwarded by the Zeal of the inhabitants to the austrian Wolf Chase and combat. Two Rocky Mountain wolves escaped from their Cage in the menagerie of Herr Driesbach at Zanesville Ohio on the 11th and the Gazette gives the following account of the conflict to secure them Quot at the time there were four men in the building Herr Driesbach Paul Morgan Abraham Shimer and Arther Crip pen but accustomed As they were to such animals they thought Only of saving the smaller animals that were fastened in different parts of the building without apprehending personal danger to themselves. Crippen ran out of the building to get a Pitchfork when closing the door after him it fastened itself which kept him out. Morgan hastened to take care of the Riding Monkey when one of the wolves attacked him and to him Down and As Shimer ran to his assistance he was attacked and overpowered by the other Wolf. At this moment Driesbach was the Only one disengaged and picking up a chair he dashed it to pieces to obtain a round for a club. With this at one blow he disabled the Wolf that had attacked Shimer but the other held with a death grip and required repeated blows nor did he relinquish the attack until he was knocked dead. The disabled one was afterwards shot. The men were badly bitten and had they been alone would inevitably have been killed for one of them was already . At a late annual meeting of the Massachusetts anti slavery society it was resolved that the Only path to the accomplishment of the objects of the society was Quot Over the ruins of the present american Church and the present american Union i Quot such a mixture of infidelity and treason Abby Kelly Garrison Leavitt Foster amp co., Are doing More to destroy the religious influences in this country than ten thousand Tom to Mary Afram off under this head Rae of our Exchange papers states that Quot Mary Boardman and others have presented a petition to the Massachusetts House of representatives praying that seduction May be Mado a a capital How noiselessly the Snow comes Down you May see it feel it but never hear it.
