And How sir is such an expression of opinion met by charges of intention to disorganized. By accusations Ofa design to ruin the credit and subvert the internal improvement system of the state.

I do certify that Iho a Bove is a True copy from my stray Book. Given under. I. S9.h . Sir As i feel it my sense of the extent of Good or of evil thai hangs on our decision. It May be unpopular sir a it May be thought visionary in this House but it is my most honest conviction that every subject that has come that can come before us our great plan of in Terrill improvement itself is of Small import thrice compared with the Wise training of those who ill the next generation Are to make this world a Happy or a miserable one. And Are not the facts around us Are not our own latent convictions Evi Lence All sufficient of tie truth of my opinion do we not feel the dul Liisi among us that we Are not in temper in habits in feeling in intelligence what we might have been that our nature was better Ihan our education do we not feel even in our most careless moments that there Are Springs of virtue within m that have Seldom been touched generous Aspiri Tigs that have hardly been called into action i we might re Edi Cate ourselves from the Cradle upwards checking the rising vice and cultivating the nascent virtue bending the pliant habit to reason and mastering the evil passion at its birth How gladly would we grasp at the Olfer How dearly the privilege and what selfishness would do for itself shall not parental affection do for its of Spang a shall not Indiana do for her citizens but sir independently of the intrinsic importance of an appropriation for education what says our Constitution on the subject for Mil me to read to you sir Section of article 9 of that document shall be the duly of the of soon no circumstances permit to a Rookie by Law for n general system ofe cation. Ascent Itig in a regular gradation from Manship schools 10 n slate University Wiiri Meiji tuition shall be Gliatis Anlo equally open to Ali is that sir a part of our Constitution or is it not if it be what shall to say to the argument of the gentleman from Jefferson air. Marshall Quot it would he an act of Fol-1 Quot a these 1 hink were his words sir As 1 to a a them Down it would he an act of Folly to give a portion of the surplus Revenue to of Folly in. Marshall explained that he intended merely to expire is the opinion Bat it present it would he Imp d a lit to my portion of that Revenue for other Piir to de in Iii ii Ternai improvement. Or. Own resumed. Well sir the gentle Manv opinion is then that it behoves us to give inner uni Iho Complete precedence of Educ non 1 deny not sir shut hid opinion is entitled to Sis much weight is shut of any other member on this Al Mir. Bill air Hull it weigh a Jain Tihe of in i miss of those who framed ? shall it weigh Nga Insi the cons illion it sell ? or Are we part pure a to Suiter the very spirit 11 Hill be expire is provisions to let a condemned a its nobly expressed Inlet Tio is to be postponed neglected it t aside. Iwert re sir better far better summon a conventional once and b Rike out the valueless lie cause powerless provision. I had rather sir see that clause of he Quot Cimisi Tiu no dearly As i prize it struck out to nor Row than to see it stand there a Mere dead letter a worthless matter of neglected form. Quot As soon As circumstances these Are the Consoli ution s words sir. What do they mean How Are they understood by those who refuse a por lion of this fund to education not Only in the present time but even in the Distant future not Only now but ten years hence is in come to this sir in 1816 our Constitution declared that a provision should be made for education As soon As circumstances permit such a provision observe too As would require Many hundreds of thousands of dollars yearly to carry it out. Twenty years elapse and circumstances Quot do not yet we Are Busy about something else and cannot attend to that matter just at present. Isl his even Alloh no sir far from it. Not Only do circumstances not yet permit but we Are willing even beforehand to de cide that ten years hence circumstances will not even then permit us to depart from our present policy. Luw should we regard a Parent who in View of his present straitened condition As to pecuniary resources should declare not Only thai for the present he could spare nothing to educate his children l it Thill even hereafter he would make no such provision and would not such opinions As those 1 have alluded to cause Indiana to act towards her Young citizens the part of just such a Parent what is the amount of the fund that will in Bably be required to carry out the constitutional prov Ision inane lion is ii a Small mutter air such As the Pheuy appropriations heretofore made towards thai object Muy suffice for let us calculate. There Are upwards of one Hundred thousand children in in Diana Between the Ages of four and sixteen probably one Hundred and Twenty thousand. They cannot be educated in common Day schools As every Fiertner s child ought to be for ten dollars each a year. No teacher can do Justice to More Thun from 20 tu30 pupils and no Well qualified teacher should l e required ought to be expected to Devole his time and talents to this arduous and important duly for an amount of remuneration less Chiin la it obtained by a master Carpenter or bricklayer say $500 or $300 a year. When they Are so required the re Siuli is that the situation is inefficiently fisc do respectability destroyed and its sacred duties slighted. B it suppose sir that in dollars a year from each scholar were a sufficient compensation and hat our stale contains but one Hundred thousand Oje million then Isle amount required annually for education. How a fraction of lha it sum has hitherto been so approx Printer what Shad say u he spirit in which my Friend from Pike the is us that if we Are not willing to cede he while for internal improvement be or one is in favor of the Writy sep Pinili up a it Lieut further phrase or Ceres Nuiry and taking it his principles bus nakedly expressed seem o me to savor n Little not a Iidle a of that Feudal axiom which some rhymes ter has happily enough condensed into the Couplet Quot the Good old Rule sufficed them Tho simple plan that he should Lake who has the Power amp. He should keep who Yel sir i do not complain that the Mij Rily when they have the Power should freely use it. I but say hat if this surplus Revenue is Flo ally disposed of Iii hoist reserving out of it some provision fir com Mon schools in will be so far As Niy is concerned Tor one reason Only and that is because 1 cannot help it. Wednesday january ii. The Bill to make Bloomf Itilda a Point on the Central canal Bertig under consideration or. Conner moved to Amend it by making Noblesville a Point. On this motion or. Cook said or. Speaker it is with the profoundest Dilli Dence Chat 1 Rise to inflict upon this House any thing in the form of a speech. I regret that the course of the Gen Tieman from Hamilton has been such As to pm Strain me to Ortrude myself for a few minutes upon the kind indulgence of the House. It is known to All the members of both branches of the legislature that at the Early part of the present session the great system of internal improvement was assailed with an insidious violence that Well nigh proved its total overthrow and with it the present and future Prosperity of the slate. In order to resist successfully All the dangers which seemed to be gathering a bout that which is our Pride and future Hope it became necessary for the internal improve ment advocates to take some common ground upon which they would stand inn and United and from which they would in no Case recede a. Upon this principle i have acted in Good Faith under All circumstances and upon All questions even remotely involving the principle Mutu Illy pledged to sustain. I hive been disposed rather to withhold for a time the just claims of a highly respectable portion of my constr Lunnis from that consideration intrinsic ally due them until this critical period of affairs should pass by when their claims to a just participation in Public Muni License might be insisted on with More probability of Success and less prejudice to other portions of my constituents who Are already welf provided for in the Bill of last Winter. I Appeal to the friends of internal improvement to say if this has nol been my course conscious that they will to a Man respond to its truth. But sir. An at tempi is now made by my Friend from Hamilton to pull up , Vio Hite the principle essential to our Security and prospects and unsettle the fundamental policy of the country. However much i respect my Friend from Hamilton i cannot consent to the a Novation proposed by hi9 amendment. Or. Spaker it need not be concealed that there i conflicting interest Between a portion of that gentleman s cons Fitu edits Antl a portion of mine. I he Board of internal improvement have made surveys and estimates to determine that question. But from nil the fads elicited by such surveys they have not seen proper definitely to Settle the controversy hut recommend further Examina Lions which will in All probability he made the ensuing season. Upon this ground i wish the matter to rest until All direct Are disclosed when they will i Douht not make Stich a decision As Justice and Good Faith May it quit e. It will he seen by the report of the Board of internal improvement that the poll Creek route very Strong and imposing claims yet i have not ured them before his House l dec Iuse i consider it dangerous to do so and a violation of a tacit arrangement. 1 feel myself called on to enumerate a few of them. It will be seen by reference to the report that from Indianapolis to Andersontown a distance of Between forty and fifty Miles there is a Dif Fei ence in favor of the fall Creek route of nearly nine Miles making in one trip there and Back a saving of eighteen Miles. This sir is a substantial consideration because it will operate through All time. Or. Gratiot in his report to Congress expressly declares that the fall Creek Rock in the Only Rock on the National Road Limestone excepted that will stand the freezes and thaws Peculiar to this country in exposed situations. At Pendleton on tie fall Creek route there is an inexhaustible Supply of Stone of this description. In addition to this there Are Limestone and Marble of unexampled qualities in the Western country. How important to the state in the construction of her Public works that she can at any reasonable expense Avail herself of such materials As will be durable. Economy permanency and saving of distance Are Cardinal considerations in the construction of All Public works that should never be lost sight of by those who have their management. This discretion has been wisely committed by Law to the Board of internal improvement who a Lone can know and correctly determine the facts. I do not desire to see this Power taken from them although some partial evils May re suit by ils exercise yet on the whole i am Well assured the Public Good will be advanced. With this View of the subject i cannot but indulge the Hope that the motion of my Friend from Hamilton to Amend will not prevail. 1 have Felt myself called on to say this much that my motives might he correctly appreciated ill this House and elsewhere. wa6illmi.ton. Correspondence of the a Tim re Patriot. Wasumi Egton 1836. Tie Treasury circular the so much he praised and coasted specie circular that was announced Vii such a flourish of trumpets by the Globe As it one i file most Benjii on measures Ever devised l fatwas to to if a Evoh ution in the whole currency a the country and put in every Man s pocket a real Simnin Dollar instead of the paper Rajas be had so Loof it vainly in i it it Irish to be Worth Money what is to become of it it is to have leave to fall unsupported and in pitied Nile or. Brinton should make a desperate a flirt and Rush Forward to Rescue his favorite prot Jet from destruction. The Ilum log Hiis Teeri so completely exposed it has been demonstrated so to be without any warrant of Law Justice or common sense As Well As m test unpopular with the Western people that the friends of the Admi Iii Timion cannot if they would and dare nol if they could undertake to sustain it. B on and few of his set Are the Only per ions five Rasile to it. And they regard with feelings of the Stroili jest indignation ii the. Movement made by Rives against the it asure. Rives Nile and the rest of the party whom 1 have heard express their Genii ments wish to make us believe that they think the Cir Euler was m its excellent As a temporary measure and that it Origi Unter in the purest and Ennst Benignant t7ioti ?e8 and intentions it he Cut to but the it having answered ils purpose and accomplished the o Jim intended. It oui it now to be abandoned. All this is As entirely Humbug As the neat Little commentary by Whitney a the so Are titty of the Treasury or it which is More probable than either Banton himself consisting of foor Ortive mortal columns Tiit accompanied the first proc Lama lion of the order in the Globe. They find them selves in an awkward p Edi Cement and they arc in de Vorina to get out of it with As much Grace As possible but it won t do. is absolutely rav i Iii and insists on the Treasury circular being maintained in All its vigor. A looks upon the proposition of Rives accompanied Asil was with a declarations of the opinions of that senator Adverse to his notions on the currency As a direct fling at himself and when he heard ils terms he Sla Ped or. Senator Hubbard who sets next to him violently on the shoulder and muttered an imprecations sufficiently indicative of his anger and resentment. After the adjournment he approached or. Ewing. And with a ill he Firce Energy of excited passion said Quot i Wouri rather vote for your Resolution by go than that of Rives Quot were it not for the clause in the Resolution of Rives that leaves with the Deposit binks the whole Power of selecting those Banks whose notes shall be received in payment for the Public lands it would pass without much opposition. But this feature constitutes an insuperable objection in the estimation of the whig senators. Rives and his friends Insi t upon it at present but i would not be surprised at All in the whole proposition should be abandoned Aud Ewing s Resolution with some slight modification be adopted by a majority of the Senate. The feeling in the House against the Treasury circular is very Strong and i sincerely believe that the exception Able clause in the Resolution of or. Rives i have noticed would he voted Down there. Many of the most unflinching of lbs parly do not scruple to denounce in the strongest terms the conduct of Iho Deposit Banks and Are resolved to give them no countenance or sup Porf. There can be no Donal that Here is a decided split in the Camp but Van Buren will labor strenuously to prevent an open rupture and by representing the mischief such an occurrence would produce upon birth the antagonist parties May succeed to some cd Lei ii and for 8ome time. Benton and Rives Are not the Only persons in the Senate who look upon each other As rivals. Buchanan is Ever and anon striving to Cut in Between them and Van has almost As hard .1 game to play to keep the other two from knocking the pennsylvanian Down As he has to prevent them a selves from having a regular Lussler. Silas Wright will probably go ail lengths with Benton for in Sake a Ife Ilei a and to prevent him from bolting from the Van Bure i track. Talmadgo will go against him. Hubbard was expected to make a set speech to Day in support of Rivea subs Itule he was not prepared i presume or perhaps did not wish in speak to so Thill an Assembly. Not thing of moment was done. To Piton introduced his tix Poncino the same in All respect a As at he last session. The sen ale soon went into executive business and after Silling ii while to Vii closed doors adjourned. Ill the House or. D Ikon of Georgia elected to fill the place of general Contee appeared was Quai lied and took his a ent. It was petition Day and or. Adams wishing 1 suppose to have a of fun to make a merry Christ mad withal presented a Pei icon from Pennsylvania praying for the Law lotion of slavery and slave Trade in the District and moved its reference to the committee on the District. Or. Pickens a of South Cro Lina asked the speaker whether such a motion was in order under the Resolution adopted at the last session a and what ought to be the destiny of All such petitions. The speaker replied that it would remain with the House what ought to be done with them. He was not prepared then to give a decisive opinion but his impression was that the Resolution referred to or. Pinckney s expired with the last session. Quot in that Case Quot said or. Pickens Quot i oppose the gentleman s motion to refer to any standing committee of this House and demand the yeas and or. Parks of Maine an unflinching Van Burnite instantly Rose and moved to Lay the whole subject on the table up started the silvered head of o. A q. 1 beg Pardon of or. Brooks i Don t mean his spirited and intelligent correspondent but old previous question Cushman who forthwith demanded the ayes Aud noes. They were ordered messes Garland Thompson of South Carona and Pickens de cd Ned to Vole. The motion was carried by a vote of 116 to 36. Or. Davis of Indiana then moved that he Reso Lution offered by him last week providing that All petitions memorials and other papers of whatever character relating in any Vay to the abolition of slavery or lha slave Trade that May be presented be Laid on the table without being read or printed and i Ghoul debate but the House refused to accede to his request. The Tarril Quot was touched again but slightly. Or. For it s Resolution relative to the repeal of the duties on bread stuffs with the resolutions of or. Adams and or. Williams came up and or. Anthony of Pennsylvania spoke stoutly against and prop so a a on to take away the duties from Coal or foreign Grain a the House however were in no humor for debate and the motion was on motion of gov. Johnson of Louisiana Laid on the Talle. Very Little else was done worthy of particular moment and members broke up about 3 o clock and went borne to their Christmas dinners and in As disagreeable storm of wind Ati Snow As one can endure at a season of Fos Ivity. D. From the Lebanon a a Star. Post Mas per Generalis report. One distinguished feature of this report and which deserves to be especially noticed in these Days of official Garru Lity is its Brevity. In Coin Parimoo with the enor Niotis communications of the Secrel arits of War and of the Treasury it is a Nile Bill Toa Mountain. From ibis report we learn thai the Nua Iber of Post offices in the United states on the 1st july 1s35, was 10,770 on the 1st Jolt 1830, 11,091 a my on the 1st or 1830, 11,100. The of the annual transportation of the mail Bisesti Inaten at 29,000,000 of Miles. In a financial Point of View the a per Lent has been steadily advancing to a Stato of live nay Ever s Nee ils wounds were probed and ils Complete re or lick eat through the Adai Rahle skill and untiring Industry of Thomas Ewing. It cannot be denied however i we pm me any Ere Lence to the reports emanating from the m Aster general thai the monetary concerns of the i parti Neol have Heen skilfully and appropriately Mann cd by air. avails of the Artemot up to the 1st july last amount to the sum or$l,2s4,g25 s2 a dues up to the same Periot period ,9o l2,781 81 a leaving a balance in favor of the department of $841, 843 01. Thra Rouit in comparison with the preceding year shows an increase of the Revenue of about 10 per cent. For safety however he assumes that in 1837and he succeeding year 15 Pur rent will he the Standard which will exhibit in 1838 an aggregate sum of$3,098j222. In anticipation of ibis progressive increase of the Means of the dip Irli Nerit or. Kendall judiciously recommends a revision of postage to take a Fleck on the it of july 1837, with i View to the reduction of about Twenty per Ceni. In lieu of the present he proposes the follow m g scale 75 Miles and under 5 Conla. 150 Miles and Over 75 10 Quot 300 Miles and Over 150 15 600 Miles and Over 300 20 Quot Over Coo Miles 25 Quot he likewise re commands graduating the postage on newspapers according to the size and weight of the matter to be conveyed. This would be just and to country newspapers peculiarly acceptable is it would be the Means of driving out of the country a great Many worthless Eastern publications whose chief recommendation is their immense size but which owing to certain Peculiar circumstances Well understood among printers but not by the Public generally Are published cheaper than Western country newspapers. Many other recommendations of equal Utility Are made by the Pittsl master which deserves the Ulten Tion of Congress and the country but we have nol room to notice them at this time. The report Speaks very favourably of the West Point Academy. The while number of cadets who have graduated at this institution is 841, of whom 403 Are now in the army 15 have been killed in Battle and 106 have otherwise died in the service. Under present regulations the Cadet is required to remain in the service but one year after completing his education i the Secretary suggests that his Terry be considerably extended and in Case of resignation be fore the expiration of such term the Dehn quient to be required to refund the Cost of his education. During the past year according to the report mors than 18,000 indians have been removed West of the Mississippi Viz 400 Semins Les 16,900 creeks and the remainder Ottawa Larnies. The fiscal concerns of the department appear somewhat intricate at least in consequence of so Many objects of appropriation being included in the Aggregates it is difficult to ascertain the precise disbursements for he military service. Should the expenditures for the fourth Quarter of 1836, says tha Secretary amount to $3,807,000 As estimated the expenditures of the year will have amounted to $20,- 332,000. This of course includes pensions fortifications and All other objects of expenditure which draw upon the War department. Report of the Secretary of the Navy. It appears by Ibe Secretary s report that there have been completed within the past year one frigate of the first class and one of the second two brigs i to Barques and a store ship All of which except Iii the frigate of the first class constitute the exploring Squadron. In addition to these a steam vessel has been nearly completed and labor has been resumed on the immense fabric of the ship of the line Pennsyl Vania. The ships of the line North Carolina razed Independence sloops Falmouth Fairfield Natchez and grampus Havo been repaired and equipped for sea the first named destined for the Pacific to Supply the place of the returning Squadron from that station. The ships of the line Delaware Columbos and Ohio Are in dry Dock undergoing repairs.
