Indianapolis Indiana Journal (Newspaper) - March 10, 1830, Indianapolis, Indiana Ened Public men to meet the exigency which had Arisen in the West with the appropriate measure of Relief because they Felt it due to their own characters and the characters of their new England predecessors in this government to act towards the new states in the spirit of a Liberal patronizing magnanimous policy. So much sir for tie cause Why and i Hope that by this time sir the honorable gentleman is satisfied if not i do not know when or hic or Why he Ever will be. A wednesday March 1830. Murder a we learn by a correspondent at Covington in this state under Date of the 26th ult., that on the saturday previous a Man by the name of John Richardson a resident of the county of Fountain had murder quoted his wife. The circumstances As related by a our Friend Are too appalling to recount. An axe is believed to have been the fatal instrument by which the deed was accomplished. Jealousy is Given As the cause. The relatives on both sides Are said to be respectable. Richardson has since confessed his guilt Quot we understand and is now in confinement a waiting his trial. Congress. Quot a debate of uncommon interest has for some time occupied the attention of the sen ate. It grew out of a Resolution proposed by or. Foot of Connecticut directing an inquiry into the expediency of suspending for the present the further Survey and Sale of the Public ands. The Verj question however seems to be whether the South or the East has been most Friendly to the West and is now most entitled to its Confidence the question assumed this shape in consequence of an attempt made by or. Benton a senator from Missouri to form an Alliance Between the West and the South. It seems to be the object of the Southern members to second or. Benton s views and of the Eastern to defeat the project and show that such an Alliance would be the Friendship of the West appears to be the Bone of Contention. Or. Webster and or. Hayne Are ranked As the leaders on their respective sides and have both made speeches of great length and Power. No debate perhaps hns Ever taken place in the Senate of the United states which has excited a deeper interest. A Large portion of the senators have participated in the discussion among whom from the West Are messes. Benton and Barton of Missouri Rowan of Kentucky and Noble of Indiana. Judging from the debate it would appear that every thing is in order under this question and nothing is less spoken of than the Resolution out of which the discus rect and receiving such court sensation As in his opinion shall be suitable and just not exceeding to each that heretofore allowed by Law to the superintendent of the Cumberland Road in the state of Ohio. Messes. Editors a whatever contributes to cast Light on the fables of the Heathen must at once appear of immense importance to the government. This is the Only apology i have to offer for making this last extort to save from a onion destruction the invaluable perineal. Or. A by Quot is one of the most perverse mortals i Ever had any thing to do with. He tells me i have not honesty enough to admit that Pope s word is Pierian and obstinately contends that the Mountain was called Pierius and insinuates in a Friendly manner that i used a word without knowing its meaning and informs us it signifies yearly he might have added everlasting without end. When i moved to strike out Pierian and informed you that perineal blood in the original manuscript the More candid and those possessing better feelings towards the Eye and ear witness were satisfied the correctness of the criticism was admitted so Alt As it concerned Pierian and you know gentleman the manuscript in your Possession is not in my the misfortune with or. X y was that in admonishing me he fell into a similar error amp has not Only most woefully lacerated the Mountain piers but Parnassus and Helicon also. With a Zeal and sagacity becoming a better cause he has endeavoured to preserve his favorite Pierian by the authority of Pope and ridiculously endeavouring to derive adjectives terminating in Eai from nouns ending with us \ and such appears to have been the agony of his efforts As strongly to resemble the Floun cing of a great Goose in a sea of feathers. By the however i would observe for the Benefit of the ignorant that Pierius is the name of a Man and not As my Learned Friend supposes the name of a Mountain. He says Quot after consulting some authority 1 find that my fabulous Mountain is called Pierius piers or is this evasion or worse i should have been glad he had saved me the pain of demanding his authority. I Challenge him to produce one Sion has Arisen. If it were possible we should to /. Be glad to publish some of the leading speech yes at length by they Are too Long for Publica Tion without dividing them so As in some measure to destroy their interest. We shall occasionally insert extracts embracing some of the most interesting portions of the debate. In this paper a will be found an extract from or. Webster s last speech. This extract contains his views and the views of those with whom he acts on the subject of making appropriations for purposes of internal improvement j a a subject of vital importance to the Western country. On the 15th Ultimo or. Jennings from the committee on Public lands reported a Bill to establish an additional land office in Indiana for the St. Joseph and Elk Hart lands. Among the proceedings of Congress the following Bill proposing further appropriations for the purpose of opening the Cumberland Road Wes Wardly from Zanesville will be looked upon with interest in this country. It was introduced in a he Senate of the United states by or. Hendricks on the 22d of february and was read and passed to a second Reading. The votes on this Bill will in some measure test the sincerity of the declarations of Friend Mountain Pierius. I risk the whole controversy on this Point. Or. X y is not Only incorrect hut stupid fool is a Little uncivil which can Only he accounted for from the fact of his being caught so often nodding on Parnassus. But i Trust if he has Given me a Pinch of worm Wood it will be remembered he was compelled to let go the tug of argument. The civility elegance classical taste and Calm feelings of the reply Shew his Abi ties As a critic and demonstrate that he must have drunk deep at the Pierian or More elegantly at the perineal Spring. But he is not Only guilty of false orthography but misrepresents a Plain matter of fact. He says Pierian alludes to the Mountain Pierius. What shall i say to this it is noddy to make such an assertion and affront cry to defend ground so untenable. Pope s allusion 1 is to the sciences. Now did poetry music literature and intelligence i dwell in the Mountain or with the Muises i let common sense decide. Had ship to the West which have recently been not or. X y discovered such a Petu made in the Senate South and East. By members from the a Bill for the continuation of the Cumberland Road in the states of Ohio Indiana and Illinois. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of representatives of the United states of America in Congress assembled. That the sum of one Hundred thousand dollars be and the same is hereby appropriated for the purpose of opening grading and making the Cumberland Road Wes Wardly of Zanesville in the state of Ohio and that the sum of sixty thousand dollars be and the same is hereby appropriated for the purpose of opening grading and bridging the Cumberland Road in the state of Indiana commencing at Indianapolis and progressing with the work to the Eastern and Western boundaries of said state and that the sum of Twenty thousand dollars be and the same is hereby appropriated for the purpose of opening grading and bridging the Cumberland Road in the state of Illinois East of Vandalia which said sums shall be paid out of any Money not otherwise appropriated and replaced out of the fund reserved for laying out and making roads under the direction of Congress by the several acts passed for the admission of the states of Ohio Indiana Illinois and Missouri into the Union on an equal footing with the original states. Sec. 2. And be it further enacted. That for the immediate accomplishment of these objects the superintendents heretofore appointed in the states of Ohio and Indiana shall under the direction of the president of the United states faithfully execute the work and disburse the Money giving Bond and Security As he shall i Lani and perverse disposition i should have been glad to have had a Little logo achy occasionally but taking my leave i would remind him that Pic rides or Pieria from which the Sweet and sonorous perineal is derived comes according to etymological descent from the daughters of Kanippe and Pierius a Man who daring to contend with the muses was turned into a Magpie a very talkative kind of Bird. Ear and Eye witness. A consummate villain detected. James Smith a Small Man of genteel appearance was arrested in this City on Friday last for having forged a Check for 2000, in he name of Hagan amp co. Of new Orleans on the Branch of the Bank of the u. States in that City. Smith Drew the Money from the Bank on the 6th ult and red from the City Early the succeeding morning in the steam boat Huron. He proceeded immediately to Nashville where he passed under the assumed name of Johnson. From thence he directed his course to Louisville where he again a banged his name to Adams. With a Fatu Ity that seems Ever to Mark the foot Steps of Villany he there took lodgings at a Public House kept by the Nephew of a gentleman in new York with whom Smith had formerly resided As a clerk. Though not entirely recognized he was sufficiently recollected by the proprietor of the Public House in Louisville for him to know that he had before seen Smith and that his name was not Adams. This created suspicion in the mind of the keeper of the hotel and on the arrival of the agent of the Bank at new Orleans who was in Pursuit of the fugitive he directed the attention of the agent to Smith who had then left Louisville in the steam boat lady Franklin for this City. Here As stated before he was arrested and taken before the mayor for i examination. His person and trunk were searched but Only a Small Pari of the Money found. It is understood he expended the remainder in Nashville in gambling. In Bis trunk were discovered a variety of letters and Boston new York Liverpool and Havre amounting to about f20,000, All of which were purloined front the letter bags of the ships Talma and Azelia on the eve of de Quot parture from new Orleans. Super added to these evidences of vile depravity there was found in his Possession a great variety of signatures of respectable mercantile houses in new York Boston and new Orleans which appear to have been torn from letters and drafts and which were unquestionably intended to be used in furtherance of his diabolical plans. Smith is an old offender and has been a tenant of the Penitentiary in Philadelphia for four or five years for forgery. This was about seven years ago hut by his subsequent Correct deportment he succeeded in obtaining the Confidence of respectable merchants in new York and new Orleans and officiated As a merchant s clerk in each of those cities. He had been living in that capacity in the latter place about three months previous to these last acts of loathsome iniquity. He was committed to the jail in this City and will doubtless meet the punishment Bis consummate villainy justly american. The recent heavy fall of Snow afforded an excellent Opportunity of trying an interesting Experiment on the rail Road. Although the Snow was in some places eighteen inches deep the whole of it was speedily and effectually removed from the track As far As the Carrollton viaduct by a machine of simple construction drawn by one horse to which was also attached a passenger car in which were seated several strangers who happened to be present. The Experiment was conclusive and Highl satisfactory and proved that we need not apprehend the smallest delay or inconvenience from the deepest snows which Are Ever Likely to . Am. An Experiment was made on the Baltimore rail Road on the 27tb ult. With the Carriage propelled by a sail. The management of the sail during the excursion was confided to a ship master of great experience and return of the Carriage before the wind it was propelled at the astonishing rate of full Twenty Miles an hour select committee of Congress on the subject of the fifth census estimates the population of 1830, As follows free population 10, 650,000 slaves 1,950,000 total 12, 600,000. They recommend a ratio of 50,000 for the representation in the House of representatives which they believe will not increase that body beyond the number of 225 members. A writer in the Illinois intelligencer estimates the population of Illinois at 100,000, one half of whom Are settlers on Public land which they Are generally unable to Purchase on the present terms. Missouri and Arkansas he supposes to contain about 50,000 inhabitants in the same condition and calculates that this aggregate of 100,-000 will be swelled by emigration until they amount in the year 1840, to at least 300,000.
