Substance of or. Plumm Krs s remarks on the motion to reject the Niu Lor Tho i Rin Aliou of Ohio cooly out of Trio county of Dij Arborn. Or. Plummer said la Makin this Molion he fell it due to himself As Vav will As the Senate that he should briefly assign his reasons. He said he had received a this morning from gentlemen in the other Branch of this legislature which he asked leave of the Senate to read this communication related to the course which he or. P. Would Lake upon this question urging him to support the Bili As being he wish of his constituents amp a he or. P. Said he would reply to this in his own Way upon the floor of the Senate. He Felt a due respect for the gentlemen who had thus instructed him indeed he was upon t>3rms of personal Friendship with those gentle Nen and Felt no disposition to treat them with unkindness but befell bound to oppose their instructions. A he question is asked if he could take a stand against the revealed will of his constituents Ile replied that he never Felt disposed to go against their will if that will was satisfactorily known. In the present instance he did not know what was the will of his constituents. He Fielt fully satisfied however that they did not wish this Bill passed in its present shape. He said he would Call for the Reading of the Petit on accompanying the Bill. It will be readily perceived that the Bill does not correspond with the petition. The petition asks for the formation of a new county out of All the territory South of Laughery Creek. Does this Bill provide Lor a county As there prayed for no sir. It is entirely h new Ihms never asked for nor even contemplated by his constituents. He had been told that the question had been fully settled by the citizens of Dearborn county that they desired such a division and that unless such a division was Effe cd that Thelong continued strife existing there would never cease. He was far from being satisfied that this was the Case. However willing and anxious he Reighl be to see the existing difficulties speedily settled he could not support this measure As on a calculated to secure that very important result. Or. P. Said he should oppose this Bill on other grounds. The Constitution provides that no new county shall be formed which will reduce the territory of an old county below four Hundred Square Miles. The question then arises will the formation of this new county reduce Dearborn county below its constitutional limits.? in order to Settle the question a certificate of the auditor of state is presented which makes Dearborn county to contain an excess of some Twenty Square Miles. It will be been by that certificate that the auditor was not positive but that he had calculated the fractional sections bordering on the River As whole sections therefore his certificate could not be relied upon As Correct. Can we believe from statement that there is Post timely an excess no sensible Man can cd me to such a conclusion. To say the least this is very Uncertain evidence and such As this honorable Senate should never act up in. But we have the certificates of two Surveyor generals that the county is already reduced below its constitutional limits. How Are we to act in this Case.? can we consistently legislate upon a question of such a doubtful character but it is said that this Bill contemplates a new Survey of Dearborn county and this new Survey of Dearborn county and this new county is not to be formed unless there is found a surplus. If this be the Case Why not wait until it is ascertained that Ibert is a surplus this is certainly legislate my in Advance. But suppose this new county should be formed As provided for by that Bill upon whom will devolve the trouble and expense of a new Survey the citizens of the new county would of course feel no interest in that matter and the citizens of the old county must of necessity incur All the expense in order to secure their own just rights. This would be oppressive and unjust. There was still another objection to this Bill. He considered it extremely bad policy to commence the division of old counties and the formation of new counties with such Small territory. It was setting a precedent which might tend to destroy the peace and Harmony of almost All the counties in the state. Senators ought to be careful How they acl upon this subject. They should reflect upon the consequences and in this Case act As they would if i heir own coun ties were immediately concerned. He wished a fair and candid examination of the , and Bethought that if this was Given it they could not fill to coma to the same conclusion with himself that this Bill should at this time lie promptly rejected. Rising Sun. And toward each of he representatives of said county do entertain none other than the most unlimited respect. But sir notwithstanding the High regard for he representatives and for the citizens of Lfwrence Burgh and rising Sun there is a Superior obligation imposed on me As a senator to that of supporting the measures of said representatives asset Forth in the Bill under consideration. I owe it said he to myself not to violate the oath i have taken to support the Constitution. Sir have we not the most conclusive evidence before us that Dearborn county has no excess of territory Over four Hundred Square Miles i think we have. General Lyile and that under oath and his predecessor As Surveyor general have certified under their seals of office that there is a Small deficiency rather than an excess in said county. And yet it is contended that the auditor of state makes a Small excess within said county but not equal to either fifteen or seventeen Square Miles As proposed to be stricken off by the Bill now under consideration. Sir i am bound o believe there is no excess in that county. I be member Well though not a member that when Ripley county was formed it was then a object with some members to reduce Dearborn county to its constitutional limits Lor the purpose of quieting the disaffected and securing the seat of Justice permanently in Lawrence Burgh. But sir Atno time have the people in said county been other than discontented with the original location of their county seat. And it must be in the recollection of Many members present that about two years ago very Large petitions from the people of Dearborn county were presented to the legislature praying a re location of the seat of Justice and All the representatives of the county then supporting the same not one single individual of the county demonstrating against the measure. And As was natural the legislature Conformable to the prayer of the petitioners appointed commissioners to re locate the seat of Justice within said county clothing said commissioners by the act appointing them with Power to remove and make contracts on behalf of the county he commissioners As such entered into donor acts with the people of Wilmington that on certain conditions they would establish the seat of Justice in . If any one doubts my statements the statute is before me the Condi Lions have been on the part of the people of Wilmington complied with. Yet sir there wore individuals in said county who were unwilling that Wilmington should be considered the seat of Justice o said county. Cheque Sti Iju a length was brought before the circuit Curto fluid county and by the court decided that Law was the seat of Justice of dear Bor i county. A i Appe a was from the decision of the circuit to the supreme court which decision of the circuit court As i am informed has been confirmed. And nol withstanding the decision of the circuit and supreme court that Wilmington Isth seat of justic i by virtue of legislative enactment and Flint a cited upon the Pei too of a Irge of the people of Dearborn county praying for a re. Moval of the seat of Justice we Are called on by this Bill to go for the formation of a county which if organized would have the effect to destroy Public coh fic ence break in on vested rights rights growing out of and secured to the citizens of Wilmington by no. 762. Or Emmen notes amounted to $750,374 76. For eight years ending 3lst March 1836, the whole amount of assessments made for the payment of losses and incidental was 201 per cent being an average of about 2f per cent on the Premium notes or 15 cents upon each Hundred dollars insured annually. Suppose that an individual wished to insure $1,-000 at one per cent in a Stock company he would pay a Premium of ten dollars per annul in Advance. This for six years which is the term of insurance a Mutual association would make the sum of sixty dollars. To make an insurance for $1,000 in a Mutual company the assured is required to give his Premium note without interest for sixty dollars this sum being the aggregate amount of the Premium for six years on which note he pays 5 per cent in Advance amounting to three dollars for the of. Defraying the incidental expenses of the company. No further payment on this note is required unless losses occur when assessments Are made equitably Sanii Andrew Wehe we. M.

Vawter in Senate on the motion made by or. Smith to indefinitely postpone the Bill for the Fiji Malion of a new county out of the county of Dearborn. Or. Vawter on taking the floor said or. President i do consider it due to myself to the Senate and to the whole commit pity to give the reasons that did induce him to vote for the indefinite postponement of the Bill under consideration. Is Sui l ii had been his lot from a combination of circumstances to have had a very Early knowledge othe geographical bit option and condition of the county of he hid visited the Cority in search of a Home i 1805 and afterwards it had been his Doty to tra verse every part of the county he was Well acquainted with its Hills and Hiigli Laufs As Well a the Rich Bottoms of the White water Miami Ohio and Laughery Creek he might say with All Llie Vyater course sin he county lie had a knowledge of the origin of nearly All the towns Laid off in the county Many of which were Laid out As rival to Lawrence Burgh the a Reot of Justice. And of invt in order he believed Vas Georgetown Laid out Ity messes. Jacksons North of Lawrence Burgh the proprietors of Georgetown put up Large claims to the seat of Justice. Next perhaps was Aurora Wilmington and Hardenburgh Wilh other towns. The claims of rising Sun for h county seat had been Cut Oft by the formation of Switzerland county so that from Art Early Day different towns and in the county did look Forward to a Ren Oval of Iho Saat of Justice. A length the court House was esl Royf it by fire which gave the friends of removal Stron Hopes that time county Seal would be removed it Nilo effect that of inject the legis Milure had l i in All upon id appoint commissioners to it i a Cale like Seal Ofuji Justice for said county. were appointed and the result was the in Lention or establishment in Lawrence Burgh. But still discontent prevailed in the county and Here or president said he let me state that i Timve no unkind feelings towards ally individual at either Lawrence Burgh or sir it its Ethie act before me sir i am compe led to vote against the Bill for it does not conform to the Elilion. The petitioners ask to set off Quot in a new county All the territory that lies South of Laughery Creek. Pass the Bill or Grant the prayer of the Peti. Toners and then sir the seat of Justice is afloat in the county again a this must be the result. And hero i must say the senator from Dearborn has shown his honesty Independence and integrity had he been any icing else than honest he would have gone in for the Bill As it would have placed him in the geographical Centre of his county and in a pecuniary Point of View for himself and neighbors there was much to tempt him from the path of rectitude and had he have been any other than an honest Man he might have been diverted from the line of his duty. I speak this to his credit he has shown him self Superior to suspicion and above temptation. Sir i must go against this Bill on the ground that it is inexpedient. Its passage would be opening the door to a flood of mischief throughout nearly every Section of the slate. It would be a precedent for the Ltd nation of new counties in every disaffected Corner of a county in the state. It would suit my purposes Well sir As i have two interests or claims i could put up and on the score of precedent must succeed in both if this Bill should pass but my interest As an individual will never permit me As a statesman to throw open the door for such a vast amount of mischief As must to the consequence Shou is. Sir you will see Moiez yes More petitions Here next year for new counties should this Bill pass than Are now presented to the two houses of the general Assembly for additional works of internal improvement. Sir i again repeat that i do not go against the Bill on acc unto any Runlund feelings towards ans portion of the citizens of Dearborn county and for each of the members of the House of represent Tiv a Froni that county i have the highest respect anal with a part of the , my acquaint Ance has be in of Many years standing and my Reg ird Abr and Confidence in them has at no time to lie present Day been diminished in or for yet sir Riim a sense of duty to myself and to the state i must v tie for the indefinite postponement of said Bill. Of or the. Indiana journal. Mutual. Fire insurance. Institutions for Mutual insurance Are of modern origin and Are now considered to be Superior to joint Stock companies for similar . All the mute association which have been Estat listed in the u filed Stales for indemnity against losses by fire have been alike distinguished Lor their successful operation and the of the objects contemplate i i their several acts of Incerpi ration. The results of iveral consecutive years of insurance in a Mutual company prove this method to be the most economical and in j Best Nap de to the Cir constances and wants of an agricultural country who Fri the Farmer Mech anic and trader Are intimately connect Fly in their several interest and equally need Piot action from losses by fire whether the same f insult from the of the incendiary or Infin providential visit Avion. In Ciffer the Amity a contingency ii Arost which no one is be cored and for which All should be prepared. For the Purpo it be of making some which will a and conclusively dem Tii Strale the Economy or cheapness of ii sining Ina Mutual com Pany being based upon the Rar Lical operation o such a system the Vermont Mutual fire insurance company Quot will to Seli died As Otie which by great ext int and general operation is Well Fui Iod to the proposed object. This company was incorporated in 1827. On the it Day of july 1836, the Wei Ole amount at risk w is $�o1,982,546, and the necessary to refer to the actual results in similar institutions. It appears that the Vermont company after eight years of Lime had made assessments for losses and incidental expenses agouti Linig in the whole to 20 per cent or an average of about per cent annually upon the Premium notes. This an Nual assessment on the note of sixty dollars Wahidi it Viust be remembered represents $1,000 insured in the run final co Topany amounts to 57i, or 15 cents on each Hundred dollars insured which is not quite equal to one sixth of one per cent in a Stock company. For six years the whole amount of assessments at this Rale per annul would be $9 45, leaving the note by a balance of 50 55 which is Given up to the assured. The saving of expense thus made is the difference Between the sums charged by the two companies being in the Mutual 45, and in the Stock company ,00, which makes the amount saved the sum of $50,55, a More critical calculation would include in addition to the sum of $g0 the interest of the Premium often dollars paid annually in Advance by the assured in the Stork c Imp any to sides the expense of policy Survey and the personal trouble in making annual renewals the insurance. Fur the purpose of placing this matter in a still a stronger i ghz by taking larger amounts of property at a Iza suppose that the several Indi i dials composing Llie Vermont company should wih to insure their re Yective of property now at risk a non noting As stated to i a 1,902,546, at one per cent. Remind in a s Ock company the us a Greg ate a mount of premiums would he $ 149,825 4i> i l in Advance making the interest at g per cent. $7,1s9 52, which added to the principal gives $12,704 99, As the expense of making their insurance for one yen -. Now should they continue in the i Iqual a of no any with the same Success As heretofore the of their would Only am Iii tto $1s,852 51 which being paid at the end of the year is of course not subject to interest As in the of the tool company. The differ each of expense for insurance then Between the respective systems amounts to $108,102 48 in one year and in Twenty years to $2,163,249. A Urf a Liore Are usually Many t foreign Trutor grrr a i Mai a Iii. Mrs eth of utile co in by cd companies it is evident that Large of Money paid for premiums commissions a pc. And Taen from the several Stales May be kept at Home by the Mutual by Stern of insurance. The inn Tual Principio is essentially and Amphai Icalia a to Mystic one which should be encouraged by every person who possesses the least regard for he benefits and blessings of the social compact. When applied to insurance As a Means of defence against a Peculiar distressing contingency that of loss by lire which comes when and where it will setting human foresight at Defiance in prevention but not in Amulio ration of its severe distresses then the adoption and practical application of the principle becomes a matter of self interest if not of Imp alive duty. It would seem to have been so considered wherever Mutual have been formed for Protection a against fire from the circumstance that they have embraced All classes of the Community will in their sphere of action and with unusual rapidity and sue Cess. In Vermont where the population is characterised by All the qualities which distinguish an intelligent and Independent people hardly a Farmer Mechanic or trader can be found who does not a Vail himself of the advantages which Are secured by insurance in i heir state Mutual association indeed so decided is the so Irit of Protection that Xiy proclaim their careful Economy by placing Small signs upon their buildings marked in this Vise shed this not Only Points to the propriety of All becoming insured but what is Lill belter it effectually deters the sturdy and impudent Heggar from a disagreeable Imi Orlu oily for alms and a Long recital of Quot hair breadth escapes Quot from pretended destruction by the dread Elen ent Quot of fire. Such a quixotic adventure As begging in this manner in Vermont is rarely undertaken now Adays and when it does happen the speculation results in More kicks Quot than the question is often Salced profits Are a i cured by in a Mutual company ? s in i by speaking there Are no profits because there is no capital paid in on which to declare them. But the assured in the Mutual association saves it Impi chive la those sums which Are realized by the joint Stock company As profits because he Only pays his mint v after losses have occurred and then Only his pro portion in common Wilh his ass ornate Brothers and thus he has All the benefits which Good Fortune May favor the company with. Fan Olber Tavo Rable thing in to jul the assured in the Mutual company has a Corlais part of the property Uii hired pledged or the Quot payment oflos3es, with the whole Community perhaps Asen Dorsers rather than the Slighter Security of some to zen or Twenty persons incorporated As a joint Slock company. Finally Quot help one another Quot is the besi Rule of social action and is the source of Blessi Sis. ,.
