Indianapolis Indiana Journal (Newspaper) - February 11, 1837, Indianapolis, Indiana F Indian Apo its saturday feh 11, 1837. People s nomination for president William h. Harrison. The general Assembly according to previous agreement Between the two houses Quot adjourned on monday morning last after a very laborious and considerably exciting session of nine the number of acts passed exceeds we believe that of any previous session. To those unaccustomed to legislative Halls the rapidity with which business is transacted towards the close of the sessions of the Indiana legislature is inconceivable. There can be no doubt that business would be better done if it were done More deliberately. The amount of business despatched during the late session should in Justice have occupied the attention of the legislature for three months. Several measures of some importance and especially a Bill classifying and regulating the militia upon which considerable attention had been bestowed and the prominent features of which received the Sanction of a majority of both houses were lost by the want of a quorum in the House of representatives on saturday. The reception of reports on important subjects was also prevented by the same cause. We cannot avoid expressing the Hope that hereafter the Day of adjournment will not be fixed upon till it is certainly known that All the important business can be finished and without uttering any condemnation for the past we cannot forbear recommending that in future the members will remain on the ground until the adjournment. We have not room in the present no. To give a list of the acts passed nor to Complete the publication of debates and proceedings. In our next we shall Endeavor to close tiie whole. It is already known to our readers we suppose that the great struggle during the session was on the one hand to extend the system of internal improvements and on the other to prevent an Extension and Liat those opposed to Extension succeeded with the exception of some part because there was not a quorum of the Mem two or three surveys which will Cost the state i of Jig House me and made his Call for the last year Only i take this method of stating to the Public that a wrong has existed in the settlement of these accounts some time past As will be seen by reference to the above statement. The governor and All the state officers except Morris Morris Esq. Have paid private postage As will be seen by the statements above Given. I am prepared to prove that the letters of Morris Morris Esq. And a. ,have by their request from time to time been charged to the Public account and neither of the above named gentlemen has made any reduction for private postage. I make this statement that they May know to what extent i make the charge and that the committee May know what can be proved if they have Power to Send for persons and papers. J. Cain p. Although i was satisfied that this publication was made by the postmaster to gratify his malevolent feelings towards me and some of my family yet i thought it deserved sufficient consider i Tion to justify me in asking of the House of representatives an inquiry into the truth or falsehood of the accusation. Accordingly notwithstanding it was just the close of the session a committee was appointed at my request with Power to Send for persons and papers. This committee met and after hearing Captain Cain and others upon oath agreed to the following report it should however be stated that two members of the committee although agreeing to the report so far As it concerned me were unwilling to make any reflections upon the postmaster for the manner in which he kept his books believing that to be a matter with which the committee had nothing to do and believing also that he had a right to keep his books in his own Way. I would furl Hei state that this report was not made to the House on saturday morning As it was expected by the committee owing to a difficulty having occurred that morning relative to the conduct of one of the members and the chairman amp others of the committee on postage having been detailed on the committee relative to that gift Mculty when the last named committee attempted to report objections were made to receiving their re comparatively nothing. Whilst we would be far from impugning the motives of those who strenuously endeavoured to extend the system to what we conceive would have been a dangerous extent we cannot but congratulate tie Public that those efforts patriotic though they May have been were not at present successful. We do not sup present consequently the report relative to myself could not be made. The report reads As follows or. Spicker a the select committee to which was referred a Resolution directing an inquiry into the charge made by j. Cain postmaster against Morris Morris auditor of Public accounts which i Paige is published in the Indiana Democrat pose the present system to be perfect or that some a ave according to order had that subject under Extension May not Herr Afier he proper but we do Tonsi Deramion and after an examination of said believe that the adoption at present of All the pro Cain Toge her with the clerks now in the Post jets brought Forward would prostrate the whole a a or persons your committee Are of i system and blight the credit Ollie state and re opinion that although it is True that the said a Garding the subject in this Light we cannot but and i Jite ii died to the treasurer his private mire the firmness with which members voted postage with his Public account or the greater part Down projects in which their constituents were Ltd int your committee Are of opinion that it was directly interested because their adoption would a a a a a Ion be designedly but arose from the manner have opened the door Lor the enlargement of the Vilich the postmaster keeps the accounts of All i system to a dangerous extent. J a up Public officers it being his invariable custom i among the Bills that were passed towards the to blend their private and Public accounts Ogeth close of the session was one disposing Oft lie surplus Revenue to which this slate is entitled by an act of Congress of june manner of its distribution is rather a Compromise project there being originally a great Dif Terence of opinion both As to the disposition of the principal and the application of the interest. I he Bill provides for vesting one half of the principal in Bank Stock the interest of which is to be applied to internal improvement purposes and the other half is to be distributed among the counties according to their taxable polls with some Little advantage to the Small counties to be loaned out at 8 per cent on real or personal Security and the interest of it to be devoted to common school education. By the Revenue Bill which received the Sanction of both houses the. Taxes Are raised to fifteen cents on the Hundred dollars one third of Avrich is set apart for the payment of the interest on our state debt. The Bill was so reported by the committee of ways and Means of the House and passed both branches without any amendment in that particular. Cobb s series of school books Are we understand shortly to be published in this place by messes. Hen Kle amp Chamberlain. They consist of an approved Nitin ber designed to Aid in the several courses of spelling Reading and arithmetic. These books have already obtained a High reputation in Many of tie Eastern and Middle states. As a further evidence of their promised usefulness in the schools of our own state we would refer to the certificates of gentlemen published in another column who Are engaged in teaching in Indiana. By an advertisement published in this paper it will be seen that the Indiana Mutual fire insurance company chartered by an act of the late session of the or it lature of this state is now fully organized and prepared to transact business in its corporate capacity. We Hope that the benefits resulting to the Community from its operations May prove equal to the design and a a be stations of its founders. The Law chartering the company will be a published As soon As we can make room for it. An adjourned meeting of the Farmers and mechanics was held agreeably to adjournment at the office of messes. Ray and . John Jamison in the chair a minutes read and adopted. Report from committee of arrangements.

Ray and Vanness for the use of their office. John Jamison pres. George Norwood. Sampson Barbee. J. presidents. G. W. Starr Sec y. To the Public. In the last Indiana Democrat distributed among the remaining members of the legislature on thursday evening preceding the adjournment the following charge against me by capt. John Cain postmaster at this place made its office Indianapolis Indiana. I having requested Henry Brady Esq. To introduce a Resolution creating a committee to investigate the postage account of the state officers for the it a a Yeta Rei but or. Brady misunderstood ants. A a a or so that neither the postmaster himself nor any other person could distinguish Between them leaving it to the officer himself to make such de auction As might appear to him just. But your committee would i Urther remark that it does not appear that the auditor was apprised of the manner in which said accounts were kept nor have we reason to believe that the said auditor knew that the quarterly accounts presented by the postmaster contained any thing Liat ought not to be charged to him As a Public officer the accounts presented containing no specifications. Your committee therefore report an abstract of the testimony and deeming it unnecessary further to investigate the subject,i5nd ask to be discharged from the further consideration thereof. J. G. Marshall chairman. With the motives of capt. Cain i have nothing to do i leave them to the Public and to himself. So far As he has avowed them however he has been prompted to this act to be revenged upon a. W. Mori is for having expressed whilst acting at the last term of the District court of the United states As a grand jury Man an opinion the jury unfavourable to capt. Cain s honesty. This grand jury it will be recollected was charged with the examination of the robberies that have at various times been committed in the Post office at thie place by some one. From the respect i entertain for capt. Cain s connections in this place i shall refrain from touching upon this subject. The history of this great wrong is briefly this when i came into office i requested or. Cain to keep a private postage account with me As Well As Public. This he readily agreed to and never informed me to the contrary at any time. When he presented his account for postage at the end of each Quarter the account ran about thus Quot Morris Morris a. P. A., or. To postage for the Quarter ending Quot these accounts i signed frequently without examining the amount for i had no Means of ascertaining whether they were Correct or not the postmaster being the Only person who kept the account. The idea that any of my private postage was included in them never entered my mind i could not for a moment have supposed that any Man no matter How great his Malignity towards me or any of my family could have been so base As to do this after agreeing not to do it hence i made no deductions. I did not know up to tie time of or. Cain s publication that other officers made deductions but i suppose he was More kind to them than myself and informed them that their private postage was in with their Public. I do not complain of the manner of or. Cain s keeping his books he has a right to keep them As Best suits himself but i do complain that he never gave me the least intimation that he did keep them thus. When i review his whole conduct in the matter connected with the manner and time of his publication i cannot but believe that it has been his deliberate intention to injure me. For surely in presenting 24 quart Smiy accounts for my signature if he had in a inv no object other than that which should govern an honest and honorable officer if he wished to do to others As he would be done by he would at the presentation of some one of these 24 at least have intimated to me that they contained other postage than that which the state should pay. This he did not do at any time As he was forced to admit before a committee of the House of representatives for the reason As he assigned Quot Liat it was none of his if it had been my object to filch from the state two or three dollars a year for private postage and i cannot believe it would amount to even this sum capt. John Cain the postmaster at Indianapolis a Man Between whom and my family there has been continued political strife would have been the last Man that i would have selected As an accomplice. And certainly the last Man if i were to commit a Public wrong either As related to my private postage or any thing else with whom the secret of that wrong would be entrusted. In relation to the postage of a. W. Morris i have Only this to say he has been the regular clerk in the office Ever since i have been in office. All or nearly All the communications from the office have been written by him a great Many of the communications sent to the office on official business and in answer to letters sent by him were directed to him. These communications when taken out of the office were directed to be charged to the state. Hence i suppose Captain Cain Felt himself authorized in making the charge that his postage at his and my request had been charged to the state. As to that part of it which is properly private i know nothing about. It seems from or. Cain s admission that at some time he has kept a private account with him and that he and or. Jen Niso both recollect of receiving Money from him and yet the Captain in his charge says that his postage was paid by the state. If a cent of his private postage has been charged to the state it was without my knowledge. Again capt. Cain says that he kept a private and separate account with Thomas a. Morris and did not i was Happy to see before the committee attempt to charge me with having his postage paid too by the state. But to my astonishment one of the clerks of his office swore that capt. Cain directed t. A. Morris letters to be also charged to my Public account this part of the Captain s plan to make a Quot wrong Quot and then swear it on to others seems to have been badly Laid. How much easier it would have been for him to have acted openly honorable and candidly towards me then his conscience might have approved his course. As it is if he feel any pleasure in taking a retrospective View of his course i can Only say that i do not envy him his enjoyment. Morris Morris. Before the adjournment of the House on monday the speaker or. Smith delivered the following valedictory address gentlemen of the House of representatives having discharged the various Public duties which called us together it remains but for me to pronounce the adjournment which will bring the session to a close and determine our existence As a deliberative body. Before doing this however i must be permitted to express to you my grateful acknowledgements for the kindness with which you have upon Allocc visions aided and sustained me in the discharge of the arduous duties of the chair. Having been selected from among the younger members of the House to preside Over your deliberations and possessing but a limited share of experience i am sensible that if i have been Able to discharge the duties in a manner that has secured your approbation it has been owing More to your forbearance and indulgence than to any Merit or ability of mine. The session has been one of great labor Aud much interest. Tiie subjects upon Wlinich we have been called to act have been of an important and exciting character sul injects Wlinich have arrayed the sectional and conflicting interests of the various portions of the stale and Piave enlisted in an intellectual conflict the advocates of those interests with a degree of warmth and feeling which will always characterize the representative who contends zealously for tie Rigits and interests of his constituents. It is however Gratifying to reflect that tiie excitements which i have resulted from these conflicts have been but momentary and have left no Trail behind them to interrupt that Harmony of feeling which Sli Ould characterize our Intercourse. From the increased number of the members under the late Quot apportionment As Well As from the intense anxiety Wlinich All have experienced in regard to the it important measures presented for our consideration tiie duties of tiie station Wlinich you have done me the Honor to assign me have been rendered unusually laborious. I have endeavoured so to discharge them As to promote the character and dignity of the House and facilitate its far i have succeeded in accomplishing this object you can better judge than myself. The Resolution which you have adopted expressive of your approbation ii Wuski Diloia my the Gratifying Assurance that you have fully appreciated my Humble efforts. We Are now convened for the last time when in All human probability we shall All assemble together this Side of the Bourne to which we must All hasten. The associations in which we have indulged must now be severed and we must return to our constituents. Let me assure you however that whatever May be my situation in after life under whatever Vicissitudes of Fortune it May be my lot hereafter to be cast i shall always look with feelings of grateful remembrance to the unwavering kindness which has been manifested towards me by the House of representatives. Accept assurances of my most ardent wishes for your future Prosperity and happiness. I now declare this House adjourned sine die.
