Revenue Bill. During the discussion of the Bill to provide a Revenue for the year 1837, it was moved by or. Fitch i Iai fifteen cents the amount proposed by that Bill to be levied ast a on each Hundred dollars be stricken out and ten cents inserted in lieu thereof and or Lee of Bartholomew moved further to Amend by inserting Severi cents a pending the debate on the question to strike out fifteen cents or Owen said i Ain reminded sir on this occasion of an observation that was made to me on a former one on an occasion sir when i was excited As it was natural i should be and when i spoke As a Man under such circumstances will speak. I Well Remer Lucr sir that on that occasion i was told that classical allusions and poetical quotations were somewhat out of place in a matter of fact argument like that in which we were then engaged. That observation sir recurs to me with much Force at the present moment. I listened to figurative appeals to eloquent and exciting declamation. But among those who advocate thus earnestly this heavy tax on the people i do not find one bringing the facts to our View placing estimates before us in proof of the propriety of that tax. It does seem to me sir that in a matter like this it is calculation not declamation we want but if we employ figures they should be figures not of rhetoric but of arithmetic. Is this tax do we require it to pay our debts that sir is Llie questions the Only we May discuss it forever unless we come to the Point and compare carefully and accurately our resources and our probable expenditure. I came Here sir prepared to vote for any a mount of tax which was to keep the state out of debt except for Llic capital which i she Loans for purposes of Iii Ornul Jinp movement. Is a tax of fifteen cents , or will a smaller tax suffice to effect this of Jeci let us see. The state Treasury is the reports on our table show is now in debt a Little upwards of 822,000 a debt sir that was incurred by want of moral courage i was about to say in our last year s legislature. But that i will not say. Suf Ilce it that that debt was incurred in cot sequence of last year s legislature assessing a tax of five cents Only when they ought to live assessed ten. No matter however from what cause our Treasury is now in debt upwards of Twenty two thousand dollars. What will be our probable expenses in 1837. Seventy seven thousand is to e treasurer s calculation and that is made without reference to the increase of salaries As provided in our salary Bill. That will add at least ten thousand dollars to the estimate making the whole amount of probable current expenses for the present year eighty seven thousand the balance of debt from last year say 000.and we have a total of one Hundred and nine thousand dollars which we must raise to defray our current expenses a Lone. Now sir let us inquire on the other hand what we have to pay this with what will a tax of ten cents produce a last year the assessed property of the state was seventy five millions. Suppose it is this year As we fairly May eighty five millions then if the expenses of collection be in the same proportion As last year Uliey were ten cents will bring us in $73,000. Our poll tax say fifty cents on 75,000 polls will bring us in upwards of thirty seven thousand dollars what do these two sums amount to to $110,000. But just sufficient to meet our current expenses. And then sir there is the interest of our state loan which amounts As by reference to the report of the Board we see this year to fifty thousand dollars. Must not that be paid if we cannot pay it now How can we expect to meet demands three four or five times As great by and by we Are bound sir to provide for that. It is our duty since the system is commenced to support it. Now sir what May we expect to derive from our surplus Revenue this year. As now appropriated not More for purposes of internal improvement than from ten to Twenty thousand dollars say fifteen thousand. There lacks then $35,000 to meet the interest on Loans. A tax of five cents additional will produce a Little upwards of 36,000. That Adderl to the above $15,000 makes $51,000 just sufficient to pay the interest coming due this year. What follows from these calculations a this sir that unless we impose a tax of 15 cents our state will not at the close of this year be Square with the world a less will not defray our current expenses and pay the interest accruing on the Loans already made to carry on our system of internal improvement. What then sir Are we to do what does our duty bid us do Are we to Levy the unusual tax a three times that of last year or Are we not it is a grave question. Let us act As we will we incur a heavy responsibility. We cannot escape that. We ought not to desire to escape it. We have embarked in a Mammoth project of improvement it matters not whether prurient by or imprudently. That die is cast and it was cast without my Agency. Our state has embarked in the system. Her Faith is pledged. Her credit is at stake. Before she engaged in the scheme then was the time to consider whether she could Bear the Burden or not. It is too late now. That which we have done we must abide by. That which we Purchase we must pay for. What then is it right that we should do my course during this session has been time and again impugned. 1 have been told in the House and out of the House that on my head should chiefly be visited the sin of withdrawing from purposes of internal improvement one half of our surplus Revenue that but for my Agency but for the Compromise effected Between myself and the gentleman from Orange which Compromise produced the surplus Revenue Bill that passed House we should now probably have the whole of that fund for internal improve rent. If Theisac causation be Well founded if indeed it be True that my exertions in this matter have been fortunately instrumental ii securing to Indiana an education fund of Halicia million most willing i am to meet the responsibility of the deed. Let others predict ruin i shall believe to the latest hour of my existence that to have been one of the most honorable one of the most useful actions i Ever have performed or Ever can expect to perform while i live. You ask me if i am willing to abide the consequences yes if i am willing to be one among the number to meet the most odious of the most among the responsibilities that devolve on the legislature i am and when i say i am sir i know Well the danger that is gentlemen Tell us they think our constituents will cheerfully pay this am not so sure of that sir. I doubt it much i think he who votes for it lessens in no Small degree his Chance of returning hither. He places a dangerous weapon in the hands of his political opponents and next summer we shall see that weapon used against him. I know All this must be a fool who does not see it. Nor can i say As the gentleman from Vanderburgh has said that i am indifferent As to whether 1 shall return to this seat or not. I am not indifferent. I Tell you plainly sir that it is my wish to return so that next year i May have a Chance of obtaining for my county what this session has been denied to her. It is with regret i give an unpopular vote As i believe this to be. I remember the opposition Rhode to me last year and would be glad to escape from a similar Campaign next autumn. But sir we must not Purchase such exemption too dear at the expense of principle and duty. And now sir if you ask me whether i expect to be Able fully to explain my motives and to justify my vote to my constituents i reply that i cannot Tell. I shall try i shall Endeavor to explain to them that a Man when he is in debt and has the Means of paying ought to pay i shall Endeavor to convince them that it is with slates As with men that Uliey too when involved in debt should if their Means permit struggle out of it. I shall take in my hand the report of our internal improvement Board and show Triem that the interest we have to pay will be continually on the increase that thou Gli it he Only $50,000 this year next year it will be 108,000, the year after �$171,000 the year after that $252,000, yes sir Quarter of a Millionth next year ensuing $237,-000 and in one year More $333,000 one third of a million. And sir i shall ask them if now in a season of Prosperity they shrink from the payment of one four or fifty thousand dollars How they can expect to meet annual demands for a Quarter of a million for a third of a million five or six years hence will such arguments convince them i cannot Tell. It is not my business to inquire. They convince me. They Point out to me my duty in this matter. That duty sir in any particular Case is especially ungrateful. My county is one of those through which As some gentlemen have express j sed not even a ditch is Cut. We Bear tie Burden without enjoying the profit. We pay much and receive nothing. In sustaining the system of improvement we derive no direct Benefit Liere from. Nor can i expect by this vote to obtain aught for this neglected county. All for the present session is already lost. My efforts to obtain for Posey county even an Humble Clay Turnpike have been unsuccessful. I do not complain of this i know that i have failed Only while All others who have made similar attain pts have failed also i gratefully admit the kindness that obtained for my work a higher vote i believe than and other received this session. But sir these extenuating reflections though to me personally they Are pleasant do not alter my situation it still remains one which renders the vote 1 feel constrained to give a peculiarly hazardous one. Nor do i very largely calculate on thanks for that vote even on this floor. Generosity is a word unknown in the political dictionary. I know that Well i have had occasion to know it. It is much if Justice even find a place there. But All this cannot alter the cases cannot make that wrong which in itself is right. The Money must be raised if we will sustain the states credit and pay her just betray our Trust then As legislators if we hesitate to raise it. This is the Plain unvarnished truth a it Points us to our duty. Let us fulfil that duty. Be the consequences to ourselves what they May let us faithfully fulfil it a i for one am prepared to fulfil it i shall give my vote for retaining in the Bill its original , from Washington. Correspondence of the Baltimore Patriot. Washington Jan 26, 1837, in my letter of last night i informed you that Reuben a Whitney appeared before the committee of investigation yesterday and produced a protest against the whole proceedings of the House in instituting this inquiry and of the committee in their action under or Garland s Resolution. This precious document is of a most formidable length and assumes the highest grounds As to the rights of this Treasury familiar and the Banks which employ him while it denounces in unmeasured terms the inquisitorial conduct of the House of representatives and of the committee. The contemptuous language in which Whitney spoke of the intelligence of congre3,in his circular letter recently published has not passed out of the recollection pm Quot the Republic. This protest i understand is i i a still loftier Strain of arrogance he is quite indignant at the passage of the Resolution through the House although be it remembered his own political friends voted for it and kicks at the course of the committee upon whom also As you Are aware there is a majority of Yoke Fellows in subjection to the dominant Power though not let us Hope in iniquity he regards officers of the Deposit Banks and himself As private individuals with whom Congress had nothing to do and after along rigmarole about his constitutional and inalienable privileges he winds up wit ii profess sing a willingness to answer All questions touching matters of a Public character of which he has knowledge. The comte Pittee thought proper to take him on his own ground and making themselves judges of what questions did refer to Public matters they proceeded with the examination which was conducted by or. Peyton. Whitney however refused to answer any of the questions which or. P. Propounded to Kim in succession. In making his replies his manner was far from to the committee or the gentleman who framed the questions. He would look at them for you will Bear in mind the whole examination is conducted in writing then throw them aside with a remark that they were inquisitorial or concerned him As an individual and he declined to answer. One ofor. Peyton s questions was so framed As to require a direct statement whether judge Taney did not refuse to countenance Whitney or to recommend him for the situation he now holds this the witness declined to answer More particularly he said As the mover of the inquiry had declared the charge was True and he Whitney thought he ought to prove it. This you will remember was the subject of the card Whitney lately published in the Globe in which he pronounced the assertion of or Peyton a falsehood and calumny. As or Peyton whose fearlessness and magnanimity Are known to the whole country and therefore require no vindication did not condescend to notice this card Whitney doubtless Felt himself Safe in exhibiting before the committee his poor spirited spite., to a Man so much elevated above his miserable sphere. But or Peyton did not allow this Climax to the insolent character of his general bearing to pass unnoticed. He Rose and began an Appeal to or. Garland the chairman on the insulting reply of the witness but very soon broke Oil Quot a and stepping up to or Whitney he addressed him thus Quot you thief and Roniker if you dare to insult my Here before the committee i la put you to Whitney was frightened out of his senses but made no reply Quot you said in your card that i shield myself behind my constitutional privileges now sir. I wish you distinctly to understand that i waive All privileges Quot or. Garland the chairman Here interposed to preserve order and or. Peyton resumed his seat. then Rose and proceeding to speak when or. Peyton interrupted him commanded him to be silent and declared he should not answer but in writing. Or. Wise Here remarked to his Friend tha Iii ency was unworthy of notice he attempted to Drav or. Peylon of from him but or. Peyton said Quot not pay no regard to his cards but it Hen he insults me Here in the committee i will notice him robber and i thief As he . Peyton then turned to the Clairman and reminded Liim that he had treated Whitney respectfully. Hitler to Quot i live treated him said he As if lie were a gentleman and i will not permit him to insult sons therein named to erect a dam across the st.
