Cass said be did not Rise for the purpose of defending Tho course of or. Jefferson upon a similar subject to that under consideration which the honorable senator from Connecticut seems to condemn. The views of that illustrious statesman did not need or. A s support. They May to safely left with his own Fame to the guardianship of his countrymen. Nor did he week to redeem the senator from South Carolina a from the charge of icons latency which in like manner the senator from Connecticut had preferred against him. Tho honorable senator thus called to eco int was fully competent As every one knew to defend himself. But to Rose for the purpose of correcting Home of Tho misapprehensions into which Tho senator from Connecticut had fallen. A 10 the question of constitutionality raised by the senator it has no application h will to re collected that the government United states has double Fui Ichio by the Constitution it manages the Lal. Co rns of Tho country and those internal Cono which naturally arise the states Bear i the general and the slate governments Aro kept dist Independent of each other. And in Tho practical Erp Silion of the Powers of Congreve it ought become a fundamental principle Bat a All construction shall be adopted so that no nut Rity Noi clearly granted or not actually necessary to carry clearly expressed Powers Imo of incl shall be assumed by it. And Here lies the Goulty which has always been fell in the exe of certain functions by Congress which Ime with the slate Sovereign ties and Wlinich a. Among the express Powers enumerated in sons Lillion such As inc making roads Etc. The Genera government possesses another f Tion besides that of special Law making.

After Iho cola Jilisha mint however of slate governments ii Ordinary Jutis diction passes to the stale authorities and the Power of Congress ceases As a Law maker except in those cases provided for by the Constitution and in other eases it retains Only ils Power As a land owner. It Baa got the Autho Rily 10 make All needful rules and regulations for the disposition of its property and to dispose Quot just As it pleases restrained Only by a whole discretion.

Indianapolis Friday May 15, 1846.wo. 35. Bad been in All Tho elements of moral is Vrell As material Advance Cuenl. Or. C. Had sought it As a land of Promise and had found it a Ian j of performance. The world had seen no such rate of Progress. In Europe they heard of it and read of it but never could realize it for there was nothing like 11, nor near it in All history. It is probably Tho proudest Monument of human exertion which it has been Given 10 Man to erect. Quot. C. Had seen it had participated in it in its Ime Cement ils Progress and its great result could speak of it lion personal knowledge had mingled in in and much of his life had been passed upon the very verge of civilization and not a Little of it oven beyond. And it was his deliberate opinion that no Community be in where it May could exhibit nobler characteristics than Are to be found in the enterprising pop dilation of the Western country. And How said . Ha3oll ibis been done Why theron arable senator from Connecticut to illustrate his Jan views has told an anecdote of a merchant who boasting of his , said he had doubled his capital in the Courato of a Day. And being asked How replied to had put new Marks upon his goods and thus double the prices. And when told of the increased value which improvement and sell Lement give to a new country this is the answer of the Tio Norahle senator. I can Tell that honorable senator that it snot by such Marks As these that a wilderness gives place owns and villages and farms. The. Defence of the country. The last War taught us some lessons which if another should unhappily a come ought to to tuned to profit. Our principal Effort would undoubtedly to made below but still no portion of the country would be yielded without a struggle nor gained without powerful exertion. Or. C. Said he hoped thai such a slate of things would not soon arise. Still. I Forest is i. Ives and farms. Brought Down by far different Mark a by Industry and Enterprise and privation and want and suffering. Or. C. Said he had often thought it required More moral courage for a Man to go inn a Itpick Forest Wilh an axe upon his shout Are 1, in a farm than to go into Battle. The Mone the new Aeller is generally exhausted in ii Purchase of Bis land and in preparatory arrangements. He begins with but Lille besides is own Energy and for yearn perhaps to has struggle with Difini bullies which no Man who h not seen can appreciate and Wilh a family around him to Cicitto his Volt clude As Well As 10 share Ilia privations. He is ultimately reworded but his Reward comes Afler Many a Day of toil and night of trouble. Is Noi Hine said or. A due 10 such a stale of things that population has built up your Western country. It has Given to your Treasury almost two Hundred millions dollars. It has enriched your Domain which a embraces More than one thousand million i acres including the ceded and unc eded Indio claims.

For m he put out of View Tho poor considerate for ibis elem lion on Tho formation of stale go Ich the Leal. Probable an 5elsenate 1 incl it no Cussary to go Imo All the explained. His colleague had his views of this whole Mailer in a speech hoi Rabie to himself am hat he did not incl i Lelaila there exp la _ shown Tho financial condition of the slate had shown conclusively that Ila inability Topa debt resulted from circumstances beyond ils Lrol. It had been cheated dwindled by the banking institutions in a manner that ought to Send individuals to a Penitentiary. A Largo por. Of its Bonds had passed from it without the Blest consideration and Many of them it is sieved under circumstances that would justify Oun of equity in interposing Relief. Every. Zen in the slate is most anxious to bring ils just debt within ils Means and for Thia purpose a Law was recently passed to which the honorable senator from Connecticut has alluded for the Sale of Tho Railroad at a far less sum than it Cost. A system of taxation has been Insi Luied for the payment of the interest. It is hoped and believed that Tho Salo will go on Ond that the stale will thus be enabled to Call in so Many o its bulb standing Bonds As 10 bring the residue o its debt within its control. This is a Enn sum Malion div fully sought by the people of la. Siale and Ibe slate government. But such a re Sull if attained furnishes no objection As urged against this Bill. The Road will be completed and the two great objects which Congress ought 10 seek will be obtained. Ils effect will be leh in the enhanced value of All the land within a reasonable distance of in and it will become i great line of communication useful in peace and almost indispensable in War. If thus com peeled and Wilh adequate securities which the Law of ils Sale contains for its use by the Public and by individuals Why require the Siale forever 10 hold in individuals can manage in belter. All experience proves that. And Whilo the stale is striving to redeem its credit and pay ils debts should an impediment be thrown in lis Way by Congress who require it to retain properly when no Carlly advantage would result from in and when Ilia most anxious to sell in in order to pay us Debia such a Lim Lalion would seem to be a Premium upon dish Nesly. You would prevent the stale from doing what is right and what it wishes 10 do by the Penally of not receiving your proportion of your just expenditures rendered just by the enhanced value of your property if she effect the Sale which is to her and pay her creditors.

Said he doubted whether there was another government on the i each which would Havo settled such at so Small an expenditure or such slight inc of "1� us not be told As to Havo been told Thi in is not for the government to take any measures to encourage the Progress of sell Lement. What would this country now be if the Alleghany bounded the Republic what would be ils prospects if up interdict were Laid upon the further Advance of ils cilia ens How Long before the scenes which afflict humanity in Tho old world Wilu and the works will go on. If it do not there will to an end to the matter and the act will remain a dead letter upon the statute Book. So much for the constitutional question. Bul said or. A Why should this Grant he made the senator from Connecticut sees no reason for it. To sees Only in the proposition a useless expenditure of the Public Means. If we look further said or. Two shall see in these Grams a i Vise and just As Well As a settled policy which has prevailed Ever since the Eslaba Ismeni of the government. Congress is a land owner and As a reasonable one should in the disposition of its properly be actuated by the same motive which operate upon individuals. It must in Tho first instance Survey ils land and then establish ils principles of Sale and ils offices for Selling it. These Are indispensable Ai Quot Cess. And the general government absolutely necessary to make roads i various parts of in. These it is nol advert to for they Are Well known to All who familiar Wilh the subject Cora mencing Wilh the Load through the Nonh Western territory alluded to by the senator from Illinois running from Wheeling to Mayville in 1796. Any landholder seeking to dispose of his Large landed interest would ask himself what improvements he could make to give it greater value and a readier a ale. I his a a dictate of common Anse As Well As of every Day s experience. Roads every one knows fact Lille settlements. They invite Tho pioneers Long them and encourage and enable them to penetrate into the Interior of Iho country and thus in succession cause More tracts to become valuable and to be brought into Market. Nor mail necessary to produce this result that Tho Road should pass through each tract of Iho Public land As Tho honorable senator from Virginia seems to suppose. Such a system of improvements would be impossible. The effect of i great Road in increasing Tho value of land is fell far beyond Tho immediate line of the Road and Tho farther As the Road is the More important. These Groat a Lorieo have lateral communication opening into them. Other things being equal. Their effect increases As to approach Iho Road but it operate for a Long distance. Tho Pioneer fixes himself upon the Road and when these positions Are All taken those in Tho Cor Are occupied and thus Tho process goes on. And though the land on Iho contemplated Railroad is sold still in effect As a Means of value is Felt in the whole country through which it passes and in a Urci a boor and speedier disposition of the pub lie land. As before said Whilo in a territorial stale these improvements Aro made by Tho general go comment. When that political condition gives Way to a state government Tho improvements should to cafe chef through their Anthonty. But there Aro higher considerations than Mere questions of profit which Bear upon this subject. Much u duo to that Enterprise and Industry and Priva Uon which have built up a new world West of Tho Allegheny mountains. Or. 0.

Independently of the More general views to Iho whole necessity of local improvement on the part of Congress As the Means of enhancing Tho value of inc Public property or. C.

No Man can foresee what or How soon exertions May be required to repel or to make attacks in that quar-1er. To should to prepared for Reaa Nablo con ring enemies.

An extensive Continental House in Wall Street paid off a Large amount 810,000 Worth of drafts brought out by these emigrants which they had purchased in Europe before embarking. The drafts varied in amount from $100 to ,000. All Buch Chi Crants Are heartily Welcome.

A meeting of citizens of Adams county Illinois was held at Quincy lost week. It was very numerous by attended. A. Williams was chairman and i. N. Morris c. A. Warren a. Johnson and a. Jonas esqs., addressed Tho meeting. A Long preamble was adopted and the meeting resolved that nothing Short of the removal from the state this Spring of the entire people called mormons will satisfy Public feeling and expectation and fulfil their engagement most solely entered into to remove Quot As soon As grass grow and water ran a Quot that they warned the mormons not to heed the counsels of political demagogues or jacks that should any portion of the mormons attempt to remain after the time allotted to them they will find an overwhelming majority of the people against them that it would be the height of Folly for the mormons to attempt to violate their pledge As it would Only bring Down upon them the vengeance of the old citizens of Hancock and the surrounding country that in Case of a renewal of hostilities the citizens of Adams county will be found doing Batto on Tho Side of the Quot anti mormons Quot that to suffer the mormons to remove from Hancock to Adams would be aggravating the evil and they Are warned against doing so and that those already in the country Are equally expected to remove with their Quot Brethren Quot and thus save any further turmoil or difficulty. The citizens of Brown have also resolved that the mormons shall depart. The Quincy Illinois Jerald says a gentleman Down from Nauvoo informs us that Tho Mornion Aro crossing the River Day and night in their haste to leave the state by the time the troops Ara disbanded. There Cali he no mistake about the fact that the mormons Are leaving the state As fast As they possibly can. During the last week a Largo amount of pro Perty has been disposed of to settlers coming in.

From i Ilo ii Thule Pusc l ger. American deserters the news from the Hio Grande is that me fifty of the men enlisted in the army of the United states Havo deserted to the mexican Camp and that several wore hot Whilo swimming the River we have no reason to doubt the Cottec toss of this report As it comes under the same authority that attests the rest of the news from the army of occupation. Much Specula has Arisen As to the cause of such in expedited and unwell to Intellini 0 humiliating too to a True ame iric. Quot this comes of enlisting men of foreign birth and associations in our says one. Quot yes Quot replies another Quot and they were no doubt catholics too the Pope of Home has More influence Ovi half of our regular soldiers than the i Vorn mint under whose Flag they serve. Quot Well i declare i never thought of that before and i have no doubt fanatics in re Linton or men entirely subservient to Thi priests of Matamoras Are to be found ii our Camp who look upon this Texas affairs a Crusado against catholicism Quot rejoin a third. So the popular mind flits from one thought to another seeking some explanation for the curious fact that beings m the shape of men could so far forget their own Pride is to abandon their Flag in the Day of danger to join Tho enemies of their country. We have seen no satisfactory solution of the mystery. We heard some Days since a flying Rumor that the officers did not feel their reputation exactly secure while reposing in the Materiel of the present army but of gave the subject no attention. It would be a most unfortunate dilemma were general Taylor and his officers exposed to action with a Force which was nol in proportion to numbers entirely reliable. In Camp ten thousand causes must arise to produce discontent and men who enlist will not hesitate to escape from service if they become from any cause discontented. The very fact that they devote themselves to service in the ranks of the regular army is generally a sufficient guaranty that they Are not fitted for any civil Pursuit or that they have lost the habits which will enable them to succeed in Ordinary avocations. When a Man has made up his mind to desert he does not care where i goes and it is much More probable that he would join the enemy than that he would risk a lonesome journey through the wilds of Texas to be arrested As a deserter from the army by the first White people who should meet him. In is nol fair to set the Down to any particular cause whether springing from National origin religious inclinations of Gonstal Jefe tier Ujj Caractor Tho fact ii sufficient without explanation and indeed we have no idea that Gen. Taylor could give any satisfactory reason for the defection which has been exhibited. This is now rendered certain our army is too Small certainly too Small for the Day after a cattle whether victorious o Defeated. If beaten they have no Torci to fall Back upon bul Musl leave ii Frontier entirely until a new organization is effected and marched to the scene c if victorious Loo limited Iti nuts hers to penetrate an enemy s country and follow up the results attained sons to Force Quot Penny Wise and Pound foolish has Ever been the fault of Uncle Sam.

Will do fifty times As much from affection As they will from fear. There is a Good Deal of the pig nature in them and if you Itte input to drive them one any they Are nighty opt to go in the opposite course. In Short there is in the breast of Man a certain innate hostility to tyranny of every description and a secret detestation of annes3 and Malignity of every kind. A majority of the great masses of the Community Are naturally whole souled Good Humoured and benevolent Fellows and if it were not for the fact that malignant rascals sometimes unfortunately get into High places and give tone to society and control Public opinion we should Havo a peaceful and Happy country. The elements of National happiness exists in the multitude and proper development of these latent materials would tend to place the world in a state of rapid Progress towards that Happy millennium to which the pious Christian looks Forward with so much interest and Hope.

We have a perfect detestation for a wicked and malicious Man who is always engaged in sowing the seeds of discord stirring up strife and animosity and ministering to the bad and turbulent passions of human nature. It is so much better to employ one s time in promoting the Good order Harmony and happiness of society and there is so much sincere and Heartfelt pleasure resulting from such benevolent employment that we cannot see Why any one should be so perversely wicked and obstinate As to indulge in that fell spirit of Malignity which we so frequently see manifested by conductors of the press. Some we know Are so silly As to believe that this is the Only Way to make a paper interesting and to give it Power and Entrono. have yet to see my evidence of the Stence of Thia fact. On the contrary we believe the reverse is True. The manifestation of meanness or Malignity is unwise and foolish at any time. A Man destroys his own influence by it. It is universally condemned by Tho Good and Well thinking portion of the Community. The bad fear it and if they give it countenance at All it is for the purpose of using it to Sii serve thir own base and selfish purposes.
