Indianapolis Indiana Journal (Newspaper) - January 16, 1830, Indianapolis, Indiana Indiana Joel real. Vol. , saturday january 16,1830. No. 350. Published by Douglass ii Maguyre. Terms. Five qty five cents during the session of the Lygis Hilture. A one Dollar for three months including the session of the legislature. Two dollars per annul if paid in Advance three dollars at the end of a he year. Advertisement inserted at the nsiial.terme.,state House. A emr. Fucia card s report. The standing committee on the affairs of the town of Indianapolis to whom was referred a Resolution directing an inquiry into the expediency of preparing for the commence rent of a state House in said town respect Lilly report that hey have taken that sul Yetf into their a Culiar consideration and have arrived at conclusions favourable to the objects of the re Blu lion. It is evident that the present tees sity fur More capacious for the sessions of he legis Hilture nil be greatly increased in consequence of an increase of the i member of members of this body. Some inconvenient a also arises from the state and county authorities being Mutual occupants of the court Hii use. The erection to of a is ate h i Sec a Peiris to your commit tee o be the Only Means of removing this another difficulties Lilily to grow out of the or Sei it state of things. The question As o the time when this in port Atit work should be commenced seems to admit of less diversity of opinion than that As to the appropriate style and a in it of the building which your committee believe ought to Bear a near proportion to the Means hat will be at the disposal of the legislature. As these Means must act Rue from the Public property at his a lace they must equal the measure of its value which is in a great degree within the control of the general Assembly. Much seems to depend upon the promptitude with which the Indianapolis fund May be appropriated to the purposes to which it stands pledged. Measures this desirable end in View conceived with prudence and conducted with Energy and judgment a Ould have a tendency to stimulate the growth and insure the Prosperity of Lii town. By such a disposition of the funds now on hand we should evince the operation of sentiments of liberality and Justice towards those who have purchased lots at High prices under the confident expectation of the speedy completion of those improvements which were projected when the seat of government was established and which were held Forth As inducements for the it vestment of capital in tie Purchase of the Public property. Tie adoption of the policy Here recommended would also afford an Earnest of a audible spirit of improvement which would be the Means of expediting the sales of lots and of enhancing the value of All descriptions of property both private and Public. As the results of s Ich a policy would be mutually beneficial to he state and town of Indianapolis As Well As to the adjacent country we May expect a har Naony of opinion and a reciprocal Good feeling among All parties concerned. The committee Are not Able to Esti Tate with any degree of exactness the amount of future proceeds As much depends upon the policy which May be pursued. The accounts of former sales in connection with a a knowledge of the inducements operating upon purchasers form perhaps the Best data which can be obtained. Two Hun dred and seventy four lots yet remain to be disposed of including Many a Mong the Roost valuable particularly those lying Adji cent the state House Square mat y of who ctr have been sold and were afterwards forfeited 0 Strong proof of the certainty of for Eil Resi when in pro vement do not Progress. According to the average Price at which the forfeited ones were first bid off. They would bring about �37,000 but at least one half of that sum May be expected from this source. Seventy four blocks and out tots having been disposed of for the cum of $6,713, eight yet remain the property of the state and will Proba Bly bring the cum of about $400. There will still remain about 1700 acres of. The donation which May be considered among the most valuable landed properly in the state from which we May expect to realize the Avei age sum of $15 per acre. The value of the Public ferry cannot be properly estimated but considering the sum for which it is now rented the state May realize $150 per annul after tie expiration of the present contract with or. Dunning which will a lose in March next. The committee present the following estimate of the i funds now on hand and future proceeds amount on hand outstanding debts which Are to be paid within 1830, within 1831, seventeen Hundred acres of land at $15 per acres Sale of lots Quot blocks. Rents and Timber for 183 a Homie at Thi ferry if sold at the end of five years. Proceeds of ferry if rented with the House for the term of five years at 150 per annul $3,307 00 4,500 00 3y500 00 25.500 00 18,000 00 400 00 400 00 700 00 750 00 total $56,557 00 thus it appears we May calculate upon ample Means for completing a state House of such dimensions and upon such plan As will be suited to the character of the state without resorting to taxation upon the people. In a Bill herewith submitted the agent of state for the town of Indianapolis is directed to procure plans and drafts of buildings of this kind together with estimates of expense accordingly. Being a work of much import cautionary step seemed to minutes of the proceed Kas Bothe Indiana legislature. Reported for the Indiana journal. In Senate. Wednesday Jan. 13. Several private Bills from the House of reps was read the first time. Messes Maxwell and give nos entered on the journal their protest against the passage of the Bill for the Relief of Claudius g. Brown. Or. Ewing from the committee on canals amp a. Reported that tie committee had pursuant to a Resolution heretofore introduced on the subject of cer Tain opinions prevailing relative to Tjie propriety of changing the location of the Wabash and Erie canal from the Mouth of eel River to its lower Point of termination from the Northern to the Southern Bank of the Wabash and that the majority of the committee were unfavourable to such proposed change in the canal for reasons set Forth at length in the report. I or. Depauw offered for consideration the following Resolution i resolved that the committee on education Tance this be proper in order to avoid those or be directed to prepare Ancl report a joint Reso rows which a want of prudence and la Tion requiring the Board of turns to is of the c.

The salaries and Perti misites of office the number of students in said College and their places of Public residence the rates of tuition fees i to abolished Ojiri he cd intelligence of the Agen. A a a in Coli Sivler. Sharpe justifies the fullest contl-1 together with the Library and apparatus that the task of fixing on a pro a per plan for the state House will be discharged in an unexceptionable manner. It is also made his duty to give Public notice of such plan and to receive sealed proposals accompanied with Bond and Security for the performance of the work which the committee Are of opining should All be let out under one contract in order to a void collisions and disputes which would be almost certain to Arrise a Mong different and separate i it Derta kers. Should a commencement even now be made the committee Are of opinion the state House cannot be prepared for the reception of the general Assembly Short of three years. The foundation should be of Stone and should be Laid before the next Winter that it might properly Settle against the next summer when the Walls should be erected and covered great care being taken to have the timbers of the most durable Quality and properly seasoned and to prevent the use of bad Matt trials. The waste committed upon the Timber and the necessity of providing the Means of keeping the Public improvements in a state of constant Progress the opinion of the committee re quire a Sale of lots and of lands. Another consideration is that whenever these lands become private property important improvements will be made in the immediate Vicinity of the seat of government and the Forest by which it is now in part surrounded will be placed in a High degree of cultivation. In reference to a Resolution instructing the committee to enquire into the expediency Quot of rent my out for a definite period the govenor s House or of appropriating the same until otherwise disposed of to the use and occupation of the officers of state Quot the committee report that they believe it is inexpedient to dispose of the building 4n that manner. On the subject of a Resolution directing the committee to enquire into the expediency of providing Means for furnishing the govenor s House they report that if the legislature is resolved upon the policy of providing and furnishing a House for the residence of the executive of state there is every reason in favor of nicking an appropriation for that purpose at the present time. The committee Are also of opinion that a suitable enclosure should be erected around the building considering that matter As connected with the subject of the Resolution they have provided for it in the Bill herewith reported. Should it not be determination of the legislature to prepare it for the residence of the governor your committee would then Sug Gest the expediency of disposing of it for Seminary purposes to the county of Marion if the same be practicable. All of which is respectfully submit Ted. _ Quot state the House of representatives of South Quot Carolina have passed by vote of 99 to 30, resolutions requesting their senators Iii id representatives in Congress to oppose any appropriation for internal improvement from ithe general government and particularly All it Uch appropriations for the Benefit of South carbli�a.-�?ai7m, Tver.

Moyer then moved to amended in the negative by a considerable majority. Or. Emo kid Lin to what is now called the sixth circuit and Call it the third which was negatived. The committee then Rose and reported the Bill with its amendments. Or. Johnston of Knox moved to postpone indefinitely the further consideration of the Bill. He said the next step would be to increase the number of terms. He was unwilling to subject the people to the expense and trouble of attending courts three times a year. He was opposed to the Bill also because from certain considerations which he mentioned a revision would have to take place next year the circuits could not in the present state of things be permanently fixed. Another reason and a weighty one with him against the Paa a age of the Bill was the additional exit Pevise in which it would involve the state. It would increase our expenditures $2,000. If other gentlemen were ready to vote for this additional expense he was not particularly As he could not like other gentlemen see tie necessity for it. He believed the state could get along with the present number of circuits if the burdens were equally divided among the judges. Or. Hillis had seconded the to Attoh. Blake. Or.

Or. Graham introduced a Bill for the circuits formed in Ner As possible. Other states travelling through or within this state. The object of this Bill is to secure to emigrants the right of passing thro this state making no unnecessary delay with their slaves without forfeiting their right to such slaves arid also the right to travel within the state for three Mont Lis with their slaves or.

Or. Hendricks moved then to a mend the Bill by striking Decatur county from the third and Attar King it to the fifth circuit. Ii had heretofore been attached to the fifth circuit the people had become acquainted with the judge and the lawyer of that c circuit and would prefer continuing in. The circuit in which they have been heretofore placed. Decatur was also one of the counties of the Mew Pur their pay. He wished that this Bill might lie on the table at least until a report is not Ade by the committee of ways and Means. That report would shortly be made by which the state of the Treasury can be ascertained and it can then be seen whether the additional expense can be met without increasing the taxes. Or. Johnston withdrew his motion and or. Hilli5 moved to Lay the Bill on the table. At the request however of or. Blake who wished to offer an amendment or. H. Withdrew his motion. Or. B. Then moved to strike Monroe from the 6th, and attach it to the 5th circuit. He called upon gentlemen to Examina the May it and judge for themselves As to the propriety of the amendment. The 6tli circuit had without the one which is proposed to be stricken out seven counties some of them Large counties which was certainly sufficiently Large. He could see no earthly reason for retaining Monroe in the 6th circuit unless it be As has beet stated that the Wabash country is at certain seasons somewhat sickly and it might be advantageous to the Wabash lawyers to go to Bloomington for the Benefit of their health. He hoped the amendment would prevail. The i amendment was not adopted. Or. Hillis then renewed his Mochase and he would prefer that it be 3 necessarily i a a circuit with other counties of the to Quot Quot j committed in open no the Cumber new Purchase or Hurnon Tion to Lay the Bill on the table Ard land Road shall not reaver costs of to Amend let on be theroit Resolution from the Lse Natif Vinoff the com a i was certain that in representatives Ratu Yingjie com m Wallace of frankly also object Der to meet the additional exp i eel to the amendment.

He had objections to having Iid it made no difference whether tiie v rim Ken attached to the third circuit but he had yielded to the arrangement and other gentlemen must yield something or no Bill on the subject will Ever be passed. Money was in the Treasury or not. The simple question for the consideration of the House was do the demands of the country require this additional expenditure or. Wallace or. Wallace of Said the propos of Jefferson had formerly been opposed circuit was now composed of seven de to making new circuits but he had counties which he in a very Convent altered his opinion and he should ent shape. He was not exactly pleas now support the measure froth econ de with having Jefferson county in the Mical considerations. He believed third circuit but As had been remark there was More expended annually in de unless there be some yielding no legislating on the subject than the and Bill will be passed. A disagreement Dit ional expense of two new circuits As to details had heretofore prevented i would amount to and it will always the passage of a Bill making addition a continue to be a subject of legislation al circuits.
