On a in motion of air. Dunning to reject the Bill or. Dumont said Here is in ibis Bill a subject of the greatest importance a mutter of the deepest concern in which the county of Switzerland claims an interest. Whether we shall proc Clit fall of Turpu Islic worlds at once or Only a Putiri of them whether we will consider the last legislature As possessing the Ullin Nathile of human Wisdom or whether we May Van tire to apr Roach the sacred labors of that body and presume to say they Are not All perfect Over and Over we have heard it True ripened in this Hall that this is to glorious sys in it originated Between two parties in ii Elund and the militia were called in requisition to suppress the roofs. Several of the prisoners were in the jail of this county and one ring Leader Sullivan sent to the Penitentiary. The like Kiili cuties May happen by congregating Large not Obeis Tif ignore att Etna Oratius from Iury country on the lines of any of our Public works. They will also produce a demoralizing a Niue Nice on All the surrounding country and in that Way be a lusting injury to the country. By going on with All the works or nearly All at once the Price of labor will be so far in Hatice Aslo prevent the of Farmers hiring labourers. That principle so deeply in our nature the gregarious pro Jeo suy a the desire of congregating still operate upon the Voung and Giddy and Many too Many bet Ween Igan Tysl years of age will leave their fathers to labor with the multitude. The farms will inevitably be wrought by but few and feeble hands ,.alimpr�vement-lhat"it is perfect that of produce be greatly lessened .1.1. A a. 1 a 11 3 tie once of produce Reatle enhanced the to add to it would destroy is symmetry that Totake from it would produce deformity. A a glorious is its baptismal name und the word a glorious echoes daily through his concave As applied to our Law of last Winter providing for works of internal . May we tit venture to raise the curtain and look for ourselves or must the glorious Echo be rung in our ears until we Are stupefied by the Din and us ii we shall believe there was one pure Wise a perfect legislative body who by their Peerless Wisdom have saved the people the future trouble of thinking. In this matter the county of Switzerland claims to think and be heard. She though stall in territory is still jealous of her rights. She claims to know the facts and will not be bound to believe the Glori oils Tochoy he who looks upon me As an enemy to in Ernal improvements looks with distorted eyes. I am More its Friend than those who Trust to the Echo without scrutiny. I Ahn its Friend and will go in its support Quot As far As who goes not to destroy but to Foster not to delude by visionary Hopes but to support by using practicable Noe ans which must end in their completion within a Reasti Able Liine. We of Switzerland pay and to pay our proportion of the Revenue and when we see the clued rising that May overwhelm us with gloom do kit be astonished that we speak and imploring ask to have he evil averted. Ivi fed and a glorious As system has in in painted to us there is not one of its univ Coates who has not at knitted that there Are More works than policy or Wisdom would justify but thai they Weie obliged to take them on in order o soc fire votes Cit Iii o carry to measure. It Nius then be a a per Cal and glorious a founded on bargain it to s by Corrozi Tiomi Antl now it is to be Lel ended nay it is defended by the United cry of perfection. The watch word to Quot rally and standby Quot is daily Rekig a Quot add Ikuji Quot a Quot it Mikitsh not Quot is the answer to All arguments and a a glorious Quot serves As the Tocsin to rally its ship porters. It was right that Indiana should begin her Public works when site did a it is right she should Complete them. She should piss Onward to her High destiny but her Energy should be twin Perez with Cauli ii. The i spirit of it r be Ojile should not be broken Down she not her Means. This Bill i ire red by the senator 110m Carroll instead of being eyed with jealousy should be hailed with Joy. It should receive our Conti Deramion. Neither should the senator from Carroll be viewed As an in Erna to the system for Pioppo Silig a Bill that can but add to ils pc \ Evul ence to Trie Itiat ibis s Leui is Loo ponderous is that its Vil kids Are c Iger to seize upon Ibe surphes Revenue Al Lolita it this slate and appropriate it All for a log Liei Ihlen so on the Siati Quot. Loans. I Luh is the of the people it originally rim their pocket is and the interest of it should now be applied to the education of heir children. To seize on ibis Money for such a purpose could Elflei i but a Lille towards paying the interest on Tenor Twenty millions if dollars. The interest on our portion of the surplus i Evenue is but Abonit $s8, 00 per an nuni Al 8 per cent Iule Iest. To seize 011 this comparatively Lite sum and divert it Isom an object in which its Good might be Felt is Tine a Strong evidence thai those who know most about the system of internal improvements see and feel the danger but they dare not openly avow it. If the a Stem was safely or Jec eds if it be the result of the reflections if consummate Wisdom then no for Lilous Accident would be necessary to save it from ruin. If one unexpected Good Fortune was necessary to save it at this time others of greater magnitude will be needed in fill Ute. J his Only proves that we Are gambling with the most important concerns and Hal the a tipple will have to pay the Wager. Astonishing to embark in an Enterprise so great that the people cannot Bear it bottomed on tie Hope that the wheel of for Une the chapter will in d ice some wonderful circus Aliice Loreli be them from bed if faculty. It will be Idiku Buona Tiarle wasting Shrei weeks of precious time at Dresden with the Hope that some turn of events some propitious Star would bed its radiance and lighten Iii path. Such a i arse will not do i e people of Indiana Are too intelligent to by led along Liy the Lope that chafe and the stars will Rescue them from ruin. When the gather comes they will know his errand. If his de Iii tilds tin heavy they will feel the Burden and my pts lion a Flem Switzerland county now a latins to be ahead. Through me she puts in her Rolt st and objects to going faster than Wear Able. When we hear tiie perfections of this system so loudly lauded we might suppose it had divine Aid in its Onsol Rufic Tiff. It brings to my recall Tillion a Story told l y in Imit who wrote the recollections of Mir Beati. Thai j Tonias Paine on his passage with Damont from France to England with All the modesty of the of this a a to i Wii system said that Quot his advice to Mankind would be Toburn All other books in the world and begin anew with Quot the rights of Man Quot a Book written by himself 1 j his Bill professes log Lutyhe Public in three classes and that non by and labor be expended on Only one class at a tune. We it can be More seasonal it up what More judicious it will indeed inc a Talier of great concern to Indiana whether she be paying the annual interest Jii in or Twenty millions or on one Tsi. A ii Alf or two millions of dollars. Suppose we go on with opening and eight or ten of these great works at the time. The Price of labor will be increased two or Olnee Tild and then enough of la Librers w ill not be Oli Laikind. Foreigners of the lowest and most ignorant Clas is will Liet Liemas a Ity of the lab Oters. Home French some German and some Irish Enid Grants will i i a the hues. Civil wars will arise ii Mong them and the militia of Ibe Coli Wilry will be re paired to suppress the riots. The far Downs and the Cor ionians May again convert the Banks of Quot or anal to Fields of Slaughter. Under to Earth May be buried the slain of either party such things have already been ailed on stir Northern canal. Sixteen or seve Iileen irishmen fell there and were hidden in the Earth the Vicli rns of Vico Atid g Forance. Parties nay Little Ai Wien were in a Ririe manner Organ id about in old foolish quarrel Price of produce greatly enhanced. The Farmer Nowil standing the High prices will not be in a belter condition and the canal and rail Road contractor will be obliged to pay greater sums for provisions a which will ultimately fail upon the state. Liis unreasonable to suppose that it would not be better to commence and Pri secure to completion a few of these works and Ihen i few others until All Are a con Ali shed by this Means a weak thoroughly Iii Usherl would be prod i ing tolls and assisting to pay the interest while others Are progressing. We should consider the state As one great farm the management of which cannot ice Well done without a head or Council to see that every thing be done in its proper time and that not nothing improper be done. In this Case i will suppose the governor to be the chief adviser and you sir Llie second in command and we the Senate and representatives a concurring Council. We Are to consult and agree upon every thing that to adopt. Will the prudent Farmer begin the Clearing of his land the building of his House and barn the digging of his Well and the erection of his fences All on the a s ? no sir such a course would be the height of he will rather go on by degrees As he can Bear it even if behave much Money prudence would dictate to him to a tied such a course As must subject him to the extortion of his labourers. The prudent of Kroner that goes into the Forest first erects a Cabin next a barn to secure Ibe produce of his Fields and then tie More comfortable or m ire elegant House and the circumstance is rare that would just if a a Dif Lerent course either in a stale or on a private farm. There May be too Niga rely a policy Lizul Ido not believe the citizens of the stale would wish Sucha policy pursued. They Are generous and Liberal Lul they Are also jealous of their own rights they wish to know the Why and the wherefore. Yes sir they will know. They cannot Long be deceived and when the fraud is selected woe to the deceiver. They will a tune the Ria of a Why five or Eti limes As much As a in be successfully prosecuted is begun at once. They will demand the cause of the heavy ass a smell Levy that must be the consequence and thou ii Alliey will cheerfully Bear a Mode rate lax o bring Oil the Happy consummation of the glory they will not be to an onerous in that will press them to the Earth. Be moderate be prudent conduct the state As a prudent and enter Jiri sing Husbandman would his farm and the people will cheerfully go along and Aid by their and their cheering . Bat sir is this Quot a Orio a Quot ii Terri ise to be t of i Ted without Ibe peo. Pic s Accord it cannot be done it will not be Eloiie Low in est ii now Thev a re b a King on with Atna Zemet it he of tiers that our glorious Wisdom has been forging for them. The Tiok is at hand when if these works be not class Ilii Diho will forbid their Progress. Lii or Fiat will Check their veto will by of factual. D any doubt this this system no Quot glorious Quot As the verdant umbrage us lir inches of the Grove will by the Frost Public opinion be withered and seared and blown to the Earth or by the vilifying influence of that same Public of Inion it will he . And truly this Bill at this line was to me unexpected i have not been consulted about it there was no need. Lama jpy in being troubled Little with out of door consultations because it is known that Here on the floor is the place in w hich i choose to meet measures ii tid wiil Icv st stain or them. Let not any sup Ose that ibis is spleen in me because my own of the country has not been provided for. Nut so. I have not introduced a Cal into these Halls i have asked nothing and at present expect nothing. Last year f Jock Early id that i would forbid the committees to bring any pub lie works w within either of the counties that i then represented this was Mere raillery. Some perhaps thought i opposed the Bill of last Winter because the Vevay and Napoleon Road was not provided for no so. I voted against because it was too heavy to it Bulky More than the Lipinis r. I tired and Moro thai the people could Bear. Such is Yel my were there now in these Public Wirks a a tibial or a rail Road to pass through my own county i would still Vole to classify the works 1 would do More rather than the should not be classified i would a Gree t lat the work in my own county should i e the Lastoff Oil Tobe executed though it might be Many years in the rear bitter this than an intolerable ii Urden if taxation. Better this than to s rugs Lea against the Public will. Better this than to want the Sunshine of Public approbation. It is proposed to sect tie Bill some Call this an in courteous motion i do not Call nothing in courteous that is . Every Gant Lenati has a right to make ibis motion but i cannot vote for if Saiid Ibe ill to q committee. Let that committee Amend Iti file needed let it be modified to suit the Senate but do not reject the Best the Wisest the vist needful of All propositions that a Vii been presi need for our consideration. But suppose we reject this Bill these works will Yel be classifieds they will be classified in an elementary manner and How i this Wheir Everhe stupendous Burden liars upon hem is be Irit will a j Bear it must averted by a classifying policy then the people in their primary assemblies will Settle the matter they will require pledges of the candidates for the legislature. They i l elect men for tie express purpose of classification and if enraged of a Truclio. Then a Parale lie blow will be give ii to the system from which it will be Long in recovering. But if we go on prudently the people w ill be with us the works will in due time he All completed. The Rue Friend of the Quot Myslem Quot will not be selfish. If he to the Friend Inda Hij will to Clat Siisi Avion without Revere not o whether the works m Bis own county will be first or last it is necessary Hal in should be done. Trio Cloud cannot he held before tin eyes of the people much longer. Treasury must be empty and that will Slop Ilie works or 2d, the taxes Muht to raised very a greatly raised and then the Primitivo ruling Power the people will Ray to will and Ihen the wheels can no longer turn. Or. 3d, Iho work must be classified to correspond with our neans and abilities and then a generous people will lend their Aid and consent to a a moderate taxation to promote the True and ii Terpst of Tho state.
