Joseph Alexander Van poll of Sii Elby James Blair of Vermilion and Jonal iian Justice of Wayne trl weekly jouri\ai.moniday, january 20, 1840. We Wil publish in wednesday s paper the entire proceedings of the Lato Harrison state convention. A disreputable act of a Loco the Quot Tippecanoe Quot filled with ladies was drawn Alo Quot a Washington Street on the 16th, a Loco Foco member of the legislature from Dearborn Hung out from a window of his boarding House a Petticoat. This was intended As an insult to the ladies and we Blush for old and patriotic Dearborn that has been thus disgraced and stigmatized. We Are acquainted with Many of the delegates from that county and we know that the act has caused them especially the honorable senator the deepest mortification and regret. If possible however let All the stigma and disgrace attach to the soulless pol Troon who did the cowardly and a Gallant act let the Finger of scorn and contempt be pointed at him and not at Dearborn or any portion of her citizens. _ Loco Foco the 16th, As the procession of whig delegates marched up Washington Street a widow lady who keeps one of the Best boarding houses in town along with hundreds of other ladies testified her Devotion to whig principles. For doing so she has lost As boarders the following Loco Foco members of the legislature Sands Edmonston Stewart Nelson of Montgomery and Lee. These gentlemen have acted most valiantly they have punished a widow lady with several children for expressing her political sentiments. Hurrah for general Van Buren we were unable to publish a paper on Friday. The hands employed in the office with one exception being Good and True whigs could not resist the temptation of attending upon the deliberations of the state convention. Our readers will therefore excuse us for this one omission. The Loco focus have nominated their big Man for governor but the friends of Harrison have nominated a bigger. Marcus Morton has been elected governor of Massachusetts by a majority of four votes. Legislative. After a recess of two Days the Senate assembled it 2 o clock on Friday and proceeded industriously to business. A Resolution was reported by or. Bowen from the committee on education on the subject of the state University at Bloomington which was taken up on saturday and occupied the attention of the Senate for most of the Day. The Resolution proposed the appointment of a committee of two senators and three representatives with Power to Send for persons and papers to inquire into the cause of the decline of the institution and their remedy. The Resolution was variously amended and discussed at length but before its adoption the Senate adjourned. Jesse d. Bright of Madison has been appointed marshal in the place of Gamaliel Taylor whose term of office has expired. On is rumoured that at a secret caucus of Loco of cob held in the Senate chamber on the evening of the adjournment of the whig convention it was determined to withdraw Gen. Howard from the con Teit. We Are not advised As to the reasons for this course but Prei unite if Tho Rumor is Correct that they Are frightened at the whig nomination and intend to Hunt tap a stronger candidate than Gen. Howard or Felse they do not think it prudent to take him out o Congress and run the risk of having his place filled by a Good whig and himself Defeated for governor. The mortification of one defeat would be bad enough therefore Quot better let him ii Arithson state convention of the 16tii january 1840. This will be a Day Long remembered in Indiana and a Day never to be forgotten by the citizens of Indianapolis. When we Bay that it waa the largest political nose Mbungo Ever convened together within the limits of the state we Hepcak the truth yet convey hardly an idea of its immensity. The delegates began to come in at an Early clays Many of them arriving three or four Days before the 16tb and on the evening of the 14tli our Capac Iotis hotels were generally filled on the 15tb, however it waa Mueh the Woldeit and a my Lemml this Winter they Poart a did with All Ages to listen to the soul inspiring strains of tie band As it moved on to Browning s hotel. Citizens and Colliers testified to Weir pleasure and Deli Glit at witnessing the scene ii Long and repeated Liuzza. About the Middle of the afternoon the Terre haute band drawn by four Beautiful Clay coloured Lior ses dressed off gaily with flags and plumes came in from the West at the head of a Large company of delegates. At the same time a Large Canoe upon which was painted the word Quot Tippecanoe Quot in several i laces drawn by six Gallant Greys filled with from Dearborn and clip Ley counties and followed by fifty or sixty other delegates came in from tie East. Tilt two processions met in front of Jordan s hotel and the immense crowds that had collected about drowning s and Jordan s rent the air with shouts of applause. It was a joyous scene and its political Sublimity and enthusiasm cannot be described. About four o clock the delegation from Hancock numbering upwards of fifty marched into town in double file. At their head was carried a Beautiful Flag upon which was inscribed Quot the spirit of Hancock presidential election 1840.&Quot Uliey were received with enthusiasm. At this time the cold had become most intense yet the cry was Quot still Uliey at an Early hour after dark the Hall of the Blouse was crowded to suffocation. Samuel Judah of Iii of took the Clair and called the meeting to order when it was addressed by Henry s. Lane of Montgomery and Richard a. Thompson of Lawrence. The speakers were eloquent and most ii Appy in their remarks. It would be useless to give an outline even of what they said. Susice it to say that they dwelt with much Force and effect upon the corruption and extravagance of the present administration. They were every moment almost. Interrupted by the applause of the multitude. A committee was appointed by this meeting to nominate temporary officers for the organization of the convention on the �6th. After a few moments of consultation the committee reported the name of Greco by of Warren As president pro Tein. And the names of Douglass Maguire of Marion and John h. Taylor of Jefferson As secretaries pro Tern of the convention. The report was concurred in. Now let us come to the proceedings of tie 16th�?the glorious sixteenth. Although for thirty Days or More the Sun had not thrown his Bright and joyous beams upon tie citizens of he capital on the 16th he sprang from the Orient Unbe dimmed by the Clouds of heaven. As with pleasure we looked upon the Clear and uni bladed East and beheld the god of Day rising in All his brightness and majesty we involuntarily exclaimed Quot the Sun of Austerlitz a sure Harbinger of a certain and glorious Victory to the whigs of Indiana at the August election Quot the wind which had come from the Norih West on the 15th, fierce and freezing was now hushed. Every things the Earth the heavens the air portended Irres stability to the Ball that the whigs of Indiana were preparing to put in motion on that Day. They did put it in motion and by the first monday in november next it will live rolled Over and crushed the last vestige of Van Lauren Loco Focosi Rinthen remaining on he free and Rich Domain of our beloved state. At half past nine in the morning the a marshals commenced forming the procession in front of the Cai Itol As follows Hodek of the process Tox the likeness of Harrison. Bearers Johnson wafts vim. Conner and John Sutherland. My sick Putnam band. A very Largo Lanner on one Side of which was a Large Eigle with a scroll in his beak on which was inscribed "7 in Choice of the people on the Banner was Lai cited in Large letters for president Villiani Henry Harrison of Ohio for fice president to in i la scr of Virginia Quot on the other Side was a Large Eagle bearing in his beak the words Harrison and Tyler Quot on Side of the Banner was painted in bold Relief Imp.

On the rear a Large number of the youth of this place formed with appropriate flags each had a Blue silk Sash which made a very pretty display. The procession was formed under the direction of John Zenor of Harrison a. H. Read of Ripley Daniel Sigler of Putnam t. J. Evans of Fountain j. Ames of Gibson l. Bloomfield of Wayne John Vawter of Jennings John Roberts of Tippecanoe Henry Ristine of Montgomery r. Hanna of Marion and a. Colman of Allen who acted As marshals. To give an idea of the length of the procession we will just say when it was formed into a hollow Square two deep it enclosed More than five acres the procession moved from the Capitol to the East end of Washington Street. On either Side of the Street the Side walks were crowded with men who shouted and Huzzard As the procession moved on. The windows and doors were filled with ladies who waved their Snow White handkerchiefs and Over and anon would Greet our ears the soft angelic tones of a Sweet voice As it listed the joyous words Quot Hurra for an old Veteran in View of the scene exclaimed Quot i have lived Long in the world and i have always observed that whenever the ladies god bless their souls entered warmly in the support of a cause their exertions and wishes were Ever crowned with Success. Therefore who can look upon the Fervour the patriotism the feeling exhibited this Day by the ladies and doubt that Victory a most glorious Victory awaits the friends of general Harrison for my part i want no better evidence of our Success than i now see Quot and the old Man s eyes dimmed with the suns of Many Summers sparkled As in his Youthful Days when he cast them towards the crowded windows. The procession proceeded to the state House and organized in the open air As it was impossible for the immense concourse to enter within tie Walls of the Capitol. Col. James Gregory took the chair As president pro tem., and called the convention to order. He returned his thanks in a few neat and appropriate remarks. The secretaries pro tem., messes. Maguire and Taylor then proceeded to Call the Dele a tos by counties when lists from the several counties were handed in. A committee was appointed to present to the convention its permanent. Officers. After a Short a sen Weihe committee reported the following persons As suitable officers for the convention. And for secretaries John Ames of Gibson David p. Halloway of Wayne we. Millikin of st. Joseph jul jul Iii Dowlin a of Vigo. I in. Dunh upon taking the chair Ati dressed the members of tiie convention in a few Lippy and patriotic remarks. Many resolutions were then offered and adopted and a Large number of Short pertinent and spirited Spee Clies made. The principal speakers were messes Matson of Franklin Cutter of Vigo White of Jefferson Parker of Fayette Robinson of Jefferson Smith of Fayette Cravens Fri pie Lane of Montgomery Thompson of Lawrence is Aylor of int Gomory Walpole of Hancock Nave of Hendricks s Mccarty of Fayette Dunn of Dearborn Evans of Fountain Beard of st. Joseph test of Wayne and perhaps some of tigers whom we did not hear. Tie nominations were received with unanimity and a general impression prevailed that it Only required Union nil Energy to secure their Triu nishant Sucee ssi. Jul Togli Uit a ii the to Irinec for governor is the president judge of the Gih circuit the duties of which office he Lias discharged with in partiality and pre Veitii Rie it ability. He is finely educated having received t in first honors of the Ohio University. He is a Man of strict political and moral integrity and wherever known he is univer Sally esteemed and beloved. In his judicial circuit he will run Lar ahead of the Wiig party. He is just such a Man As All the friends often Erti Harrison will to proud to support. Dignified and talented to have no doubt he will sustain Hin self before the people against Gen. Howard. I Aimuel Hall the nominee for lieutenant governor is a Man Ivery Way worthy the support of the freemen of Indiana. He is a firm Friend to Gen. Harrison and a Man of More than Ordinary mind and experience. Judge bigger accepted the nomination in a very neat and appropriate address to Tho gov. Wallace also addressed the convention at the urgent and repeated solicitations of its members. He exhorted them to go Home and give the nominations their whole and most energetic support. His remarks were listened to with breathless attention and received with loud acclamations of approbation. His speech was one of the very Best of the Many excellent ones made to the convention. We a ill Here barely remark that it Una with the utmost Diin culty that gov. Wallace s friends gave him up and it was Only from the conviction that his identity with the system of internal improvements might endanger the Success of the cause of Gen. Harrison that Uliey were at length induced to yield their preferences Quot not that they loved Cousar less but that they loved Rome More Quot Gen. Pm Cain to returned his thanks to the convention for the very respectable Vole he received forgive tier in a patriotic address. He also gave the friends of Gen. Harrison some excellent advice As to the Inan Fer in which they should treat their political opponents which we Trust will be followed by editors and Public speakers. He promised As a candidate for state elector to give a Large portion of his time to addressing his fellow citizens in different parts of the state letter let it be Hendricks Vili find in Liim an Over match and will be sorry before the first monday of next november he had not followed his own advice and let it alone. The convention adjourned sine die., at 12 o clock m., of Friday and the numerous delegates departed for their Homes in Good spirits and with High Hopes and expectations. In conclusion we would say in the Beautiful language of some one that As the delegates to the convention of the i6ih inst. Braved the Winter storms Quot came up to the Rescue of their country rallied once More under Tiiu Strau lord of the Veteran who so often in Days by gone led Bis troops to Victory and with him at their head will March Forward to the ref orm of the reformers to despoil the de spoilers to Rescue the a i of the Constitution and to save our beloved country Quot therefore let All who did not directly participate in their deliberations unite heart find soul with them in carrying out the ultimate and triumphant Success of their determinations.
