Tie Savage and his Mer of which ave Are proud proud that we and they Are american citizens and doubly proud that Anne rican citizens Ciless co adj tors revelled in the Beanie of All conditions appreciate the name ing flames of the mansions of our Yeo a common and an individual interest address delivered in the Hall in Indianapolis on Friday the 8th instant at the request of the committee of arrangement by Alexander f. Morrison Esq. Fellow citizens blessed like our own sur to minded by All that endears its Possession to our hearts with All the real and magnificent constituents of civil and religious Liberty in a land of our selection chosen above All others from our love of its institutions and resources Loe on this occasion May and should feel All the ennobling impulses of patriotism warmed into expansion by the annual recurrence of this glorious Era in our National existence. Since the formation of social connexion extending to the most Remote periods of Antiquity Days of Peculiar note and eras of general interest have been commemorated by periodical Festal celebrations. The history of All civilized nations ancient and modern Abi kids with jubilees of rejoicing or Sites and ceremonies perpetuating important events. Passing the ecclesiastical epochs of the Oriental world to the Days of the ancient republics we find the great the Wise and the Good assembling and proclaiming the Noble deeds the chivalrous actions and the Sterling Fidelity of the conservators and patriots of roman carthaginian and grecian virtue and valor. As an incentive of the most irresistible and precious character the responsive Oblations of a virtuous and grateful people tendered to deserving Merit demand and urge Forth All the energies of Hunan intellect and prowess. Let cold bit Sophy decry the Quot immortal Long Ings Quot after Honor which actuate the human heart let stoicism Camly consider a evanescent and fading the aspirations after greatness and i will rebut Lay the evidence of exan Riple and experience their Learned and calculating dogmas att ask this auditory to say with Candor and in truth whether they will not with one Accord pronounce that Man who is lost to a sense of veneration from his fellow men As lost to a sense of character of virtue of reputation and consequently deprived of the controlling incentives to emulation which have elicited All that is great and glorious in ail Ages and in All history. From the Days of the pilgrimage of our Forel athers from the settlement of the Patriot band who left the Homes of their ancestors to escape the Terrany of kingly oppression the same unrelenting authority which drove them to the wilderness observed with an Eye of jealousy and distrust any appearance of strength and respectability which seemed to characterize the isolated patriarchs of our land. Insult and oppression followed the footsteps of jealousy acid avarice resistance became necessary and our revolutionary struggle the inevitable consequence. After the Many perils privations and Noble deeds of daring which our forefathers so gallantly endured and perfected after the successful Issue of the contest with the Mother country after the capture of three entire armies and the defeat and frustration of the combined Elf Orts of her land and naval forces after a lavish expenditure of her Best blood and richest treasures and the consummation of a he Milia Iii treaty whereby the mighty head of Europe was forced to recognize the Independent sovereignty of those whom she had previously despised and denominated rebels and outlaws and after she had yielded a continent which left her As an orphan despoiled of its heritage alter she bad conceded to our rightful ownership More than fourfold the territory which she retained As the prerogative of the Crown was it presumable that she would Ever look upon us with eyes of Friendship until she had first the Opportunity to apply the Rod of her corrective vengeance and to Endeavor to humiliate those who had thus trodden her dignify in the dust in Defiance of her Noble blood and her al Quot controlling Power. Under feelings of envious rivalry super added to the above and connected with a tissue of provocations and injuries on her part our belie Ved nation was involved in the War of 1812. Re cry ant and haunting the enemy crowded our seas on harbours and our shores the wild deluge of devastation spread its ravages throughout the vast Manry they the of our country rushed to the Field and nobly it Theip Fate at Raizin Mimms and Meigs. Dismay and terror was Felt in the recesses of our country a problem in the history of the world was now to be solved. The Long contested question whether a democratic Republican , composed of an unlimited extent of territory and an unlimited variety of discordant interests and views could sustain itself against the most powerful and Best organized absolute monarchy in Christendom whether a mass of citizen soldiers drawn from the plough the Forest and the work shop were capable of measuring arms with the Veteran battalions of a school taught soldiery whether the proves Sponable gentleman the circumscribed Mec Hairic or the Sun Burnt Yeoman could vie in planning campaigns with the lords the Dukes and the Earls of Europe whose lives had been spent in the tented Field and whose Fame was co extensive with the limits t f civilization whose boast was that they were the Quot conquerors of conquerors Quot and their followers the Quot invincible Quot of Egypt and Spain. Here was a fearful Issue and a doubtful trial. The councils of the nation were divided the resources of the country were scanty and uncollected Campaign after Campaign had passed without determining the Victor or the Palm. The Hardy sons of the sea and lakes had gloriously sustained the Honor of our lag and the mistress of the Ocean had cause to doubt the tenure of her pm ire. While Bridgwater thames and Baltimore had shed a Lustre on our arms the scenes of Norfolk Hampden and Washington caused an aspect of despondent seriousness. Instead of an abatement of the vengeance of the enemy every Effort of her Gigantic forces was put in requisition to make a definite demonstration of her Power. The immense Southern sea Board in the Richness of its possessions and its local relations to the immense Vallies of the missis Ippi and its tributaries soon presented itself to the sagacity and Enterprise of British Genius. The unprotected Range of country the Remote and Distant location of new Orleans its wealth and commanding situation were inducements worthy the most hazardous exertions. The eyes of an expectant world were immediately turned in this direction the fears and Hopes of the nation were raised in breathless anxiety for the termination of the eventful crisis. The Day arrived prelude by Dili Geist preparation on the one Side and rebutting circumvention on the other. The science Quot pomp and circumstance of War Quot were displayed in All the pageantry of self ennobled Confidence in the superhuman Powers of the inva Ders while the vast responsibility of their situation the incalculable treasures of country and of Home the Protection of them than life More dear from the sacrilegious pollution of unhallowed miscreants stimulated the Brave defenders of our soil to Hazard their lives their property and their All in the unequal and appalling strife of death. That Day was a Day of splendour a Day which has crowned the american character with a Wreath of immortality and a Halo of effulgence it stands a approached and incomparable in the records of nations and of time. No Effort of mine shall detract from the consequence of the occasion by attempting to portray the ensa Guined Field of blood or to depict the invaluable and unspeakable influence of its results in regard to the establish ment of principle the assertion of our claims to the High consideration of co temporary and future nations of the Earth the utter destruction of the ruthless invader of our sacred Homes and the entire Security of our wives our children and our country s bleeding Honor. And last not least the Happy Consolation that the illustrious patriots who faced the storm of War were by the specie it Protection of controlling Providence permitted to rear this imperishable Monument to their memo Ries and still to exist and witness the Heartfelt acknowledgements of a Happy people spontaneously rejoicing in the glory and Jabors of their hands and while with loud acclaim this voice is heard to know that it is not the hollow sound of base ingratitude. While we let the faithful Page of history transmit to posterity the incidents of this glorious Day let us acknowledge with reverence the obligations we owe the daring spirits of this trying hour let us consider their Fame As the property of the nation As a Day Rota accrues to us on this occasion. The hoary headed father of the revolution the Matron of our nation a strength the heated blood of patriotic youth the Brilliant fire of Beauty s sparkling Eye All join in common feeling in so great cause. The theme of Patriot Praise ascending to the vaulted skies resounds on this anniversary festival from the lips of More than twelve millions of Happy people who claim a grand High privilege As citizens of this Republic. When the Days of remembrance shall be to tis Nomore when they who participated in Tai great event shall be As they Shostak de their All in the Quot times that tried men s souls Quot the dark portentous Day it. Of our revolution when the palsied step of age shall tread the verge of dissolution this will be Atheme thrilling to the ears of our children and out children s children. When the dark Vista of years shall bring futurity to rime the Mother will teach her tender daughter the perils that on this Day fifteen years ago awaited her sex and the incentives offered for the capture of new Orleans. When gratitude Cea ses to be an ingredient of female character and when patriotism is a stranger to the breasts of the daughters of America then will the heroes of this Day be forgotten but then May i be far removed. Second Only to the Day of our National Jubilee the birth Day of our Independence will the eighth of january 1815, be registered in the annals of our country s Fame. On this Day was asserted and defended what was proclaimed and demanded on the 4th of july 1776 Liberty Equality and the peaceable Possession of happiness and Independence. As ice Hail the declaration of our Independence As the dawning of our political Light so will posterity Hail this second Era As the burning morning Sun of our National glory and May its noon Day he Remote still beaming with effulgence and its setting be the evening of eternity.

The american people the progeny of Jove and washing it ii Tion of the Wabash River was not a subject of interest to the people South of White River or at least but a Small portion of them. Hence the suspicions of our Northern friends assumed the appearance of probability however unjust they were in Point of fact but the subject matter now before this House assumes a very different aspect. We were Ever in favor of affording our Wabash friends every possible facility for opening the navigation of the Wabash not from interest but from feelings of Friendship and liberality. And or. Chairman i would Ever scorn to represent a people who could not be influenced by those but we support this measure not Only from these considerations but from a conviction that our own interest is deeply involved in the Success of this Quot fascinating but sir i am told that the idea is industriously circulated out of this House that we the representatives Fronnie the South Only seem to favour the measure in order to _.

The i our Wabash Frie rids or of any other every Friend to the Wabash canal now Rise on this floor and declare that they would vote against us on the Michigan Road Bill it would not charge my course and 1 am equally confident As regards the other gentlemen from the South of White River. I have Ever be his ship through a perilous storm might Well be confided in when the tempest had ceased and the Calm prevailed. Col. Wallace. Our forefathers. Col. Wallace commented on this sentiment by portraying in most Lively color the achievements of our forefathers which was received by the company with great applause. Or. J>/erri7i, 1st lieutenant of the artillery. I a r a the Only officer present who was in the Battle Quot eved that this Quot Lasc rating scheme Quot of new Quot Orleans col. S. C. Stevens. Had Quot enamoured advocates Quot enough col Stevens Rose and in a very modest Man last session and that it probably has Ler thanked his fiend and the company for i a i a i i the unexpected and kind allusion to him Quot and enough this session to carry it through stated that he Only discharged his duty on that j if a proper concert should be kept lip memorable Day for which he had received his amongst its friends. For this purpose pay from his country and the approbation of a t a j x n n his Superior officers the Only Reward he had i be determined to prevent All Colli to sufi or its More immediate or Duval of Vireinia left with his Friend friends to take the direction Ormea the following Toast Indiana modest in her pretensions but Rich in the resources of her soil she bids fair to be the Belle of the Union. At half past 2 o clock the company retired no occurrence having taken place to disturb the prevailing Harmony and interchange of Good up Pliny that marked the performances of the on the joint Resolution proposing to ratify with one condition the compact entered into Between the commissioners of Indiana and Ohio on the subject of the Wabash and Erie canal the question being on a Sabeti tute offered by or. Rariden refusing to ratify it continued or. Evans said he had not intended to make any or if any but few remarks on this subject but As it has assumed its present attitude As i never again expect to seek a seat on this floor and As the subject under consideration is highly interesting to my feelings As a citizen and also interesting not Only to my immediate constituents but to All my old friends on the South Side of White River i Hope i shall be indulged by this House in adverting to facts and drawing conclusions from them. At an Early period of the settlers sent of the Wabash country or rather of the Western and South Western parts of this state White River seemed to form in the estimation of some politicians a kind of line of demarcation bet Een the North and South sides of that River. This Ideal line of demarcation has Long proved unfortunate to the Best interests of that portion of country. The politicians of the Day not Only acted on the supposition themselves but they also infused the same ideas into the minds of the Young and rising politicians on the North Side of that River that is the people of the South of White River stood opposed to the interests of those on the North Side. This impression always Ideal and at first designing in its character Long since became the honest impression of Many of our worthy friends North of White River and has Long proved unfortunate to the Best interests of the whole. The subject matter which for a Long time occupied the feelings of the North was not the canal but the opening or removing of obstructions in the Wabash River below Vincennes a a measure which i Ever Felt disposed to favour. The Only Opportunity i Ever had to Manifest my feelings was in a vote i once gave to make an appropriation to pay commissioners appointed to examine the practicability of opening or removing those obstructions. This vote alone i thought ought to have removed from me the imputation of in liberality towards my Northern friends. Such however was not the tact. It is True that the opening of the Taviga sures and i will go with them in any reasonable course they May proscribe i shall therefore vote for the joint Resolution and against the substitute pro posed by the gentleman from w in new a and now or. Chairman i shall say a few words in reply to the gentleman from Wayne or. Rariden and the gentleman from Clark or. Howk it will be re collected that those two gentlemen have wedded themselves together. They have made a Kir d of civil contract which inasmuch As fhe Community Are interested they Cam of dissolve and therefore the arguments of those gentlemen must be taken to Gether must stand or fall together. The Ger Loman from Wayne save he is Friendly to this Wabash car al and that if Quot he believed the donation made by Congress would Cut one of this canal he would even consent to tax the people for the , or. Chairman the Gei to Lemaa himself is also not Only Quot enamoured Quot but he appears to be ravished too without even being Hall Quot willing a monstrous Mode of ravish ment and that by a monster too. For my part i am not so severely Quot ravished Quot notwithstanding i have Ever been half willing. I am not prepared to say that i would consent to tax the people in any event. I shall next allude to the argument of the gentleman from Clarks or Der. Chairman i have often listened to that gentleman on this floor with much pleasure. There is Someth org so imposing in his manner so much Candour sincerity and strength of reasoning that i have often Felt almost constrained to cry out in the language of Agrippa to Paul Quot almost thou persuades me to be a but sir the gentleman s course on this occasion reminds me of an old proverb Quot it is no harm to watch any Man watching will not Hurt an honest , and others need of at gentleman says that the Grant of la d made by Congress is no donation at All a that it is a speculation a great speculation on the part of Congress a d by Way of illustration says that the opening of the Tanal will enhance greatly enhance the Price of Congress land in that country. Now let us take the arguments of this wedded pair together. It is admitted that the state lands at $1 25 per acre will realize about $400,000. If Congress As made a Quot speculation Quot a great Quot speculation Quot surely the state lands will be enhanced at least to the value of $2 00 per acre at Cash sales if not Congress has surely made a great speculation. The estimated Cost of the canal is about 1,100,000. The state lands the at $ 2 00 per acre would realize dollars a sum More than half Sefl licit it to Cut this canal. Surely the gentle
