Or Colemom offered a Resolution proposing to appoint a committee to wait on Milton Stapp fund come , to obtain information in relation to the suspended debt due the state. Or Ritchy moved an amendment that or. Stapp be required to appear at the bar of the House and answer questions in relation to that subject upon which was quite a warm debate. The amendment was finally Laid on the table and Resolution adopted. Or. Jenckes from the committee on ways Anci Means made a report in relation to the finances of the state. This report shows that the demands upon the Treasury the present year for internal improvement purposes will be �472,225 8s. The amount of available Means to meet this demand is$223,42g 91, leaving a deficit of .�ft248,798 97. The amount necessary for the civil list $34,939 00. Should the present legislature make provision to meet the deficit of the interest on the internal improvement debt otherwise than by taxation it will be necessary to Levy a tax of 34 cents on tiie Igloo valuation and one Dollar poll tax. If the whole amount should be provided for it will require a lax of upwards of 40 cents and Apoll Taxon one Dollar. The report concludes with the following significant remark Quot a crisis has arrived in the financial condition of the state and the action of this legislature will raise the character of Indiana to Honor or sink it to infamy. Which shall it he Quot on saturday afternoon the House went into committee of the whole on the Bill to Levy the state tax for 1841, and agreed to insert 40 cents on the $100 valuation and one Dollar poll tax. The House afterwards struck out 40 cents without agreeing to any other sum Ond agreed to insert 75 cents for poll tax instead of one Dollar. On a motion to strike out of Ibe Bill a which that 15 cents of the Quot whole amount to be raised is to meet the deficiency occasioned by the refusal of the last Sigi Santure to Levy a sufficient tax to Supply the demands of the Quot Treasury the present year a very excited and personal debate ?e, in which messes. Henley Judah Smith of f., Sweetser of m., and read participated. Before taking the question the House at a late hour a adjourned. On yesterday the House resumed the consideration of the Revenue Bill struck out the proviso above mentioned and inserted 40 cents on the $100 valuation As the amount to be assessed for state purposes. No Mereus amendments were offered and discussed when the Bill was read a third time and passed ayes 53, noes 38. The classification Bill As passed by the House on Friday was reported Back from the Senate concurred in with an amendment to strike out the 7ih Section and insert in lieu thereof a provision that the avails of the suspended debt Shull be applied to the redemption of the outstanding Treasury notes and the payment of interest on Bonds heretofore sold by the state the Bill and amendment was Laid on the table by a vote of 4s to 40. It is extremely Uncertain what will be the ultimate Fate of the Bill. On yesterday afternoon the two houses went into the election of state librarian and keeper of the state House and upon the 5th balloting John Cook was elected to that office. At a meeting of the citizens and the members of the legislature and strangers in Indianapolis at the close of Milij. A spare Toci Iman s lectures on Poland in the Hall of the House of representatives on motion of or. Elliott senator from Henry county David Wallace esq., late governor of Indiana was called to the chair and s. V. B. Noel appointed Secretary. The following preamble and resolutions were adopted whereas this meeting have listened with great interest to the lectures delivered in this Hall during the present week by Tochman late major in the polio in army and whereas they have reason to believe that the Public have been misled in regard to Many facts connected with the history and mailers of the polish nation by the writings of a certain Gen Lisman published in the National intelligencer Over Iho sign Turk of Quot Tacitus Quot and others therefore resolved thai we place implicit Reliance on the historical statements made by major Tochman. Resold to Liat we deeply sympathize with and duly appreciate the calamities which have befallen the poles in the destruction and dismemberment of their country and that this meeting look upon that destruction As an unwarrantable and Craven Assumption of tyrannical Power uni Aralle in the annals of modern history and deserving the execration of All re Public ans. Resolved that the Spirn Lions of this meeting arc that Poland will Airai be free vill again become a Refuge and a Home for the oppressed and persecuted and a Beacon Light in the midst of tie dark and besotted nations of the old world to the friends of Liberty and free Gove nunsent. Rest led that we tender to major Tochman our unfeigned thanks for the gratification and information his lectures have afforded us. Reso Ved that the of Tjimis meeting to signed let a its officers and published in the newspapers of this place. David Wallace Cara. S. V. B. Noel Sec y. From the following extract of a letter from a member of Congress to the editors it seems that attempts Are making and will be made to Saddle Gen. Harrison s administration with expenses already accrued Quot among the items properly chargeable upon the term of bar. Van Byren is about $100,000 of postponed Pottawatomie annuities. These have been held Back to meet demands of their creditors a commission for the ascertainment of which was Given to Gen. Mitchell of Elkhart. He has closed Iii labors and presented his report but the executive will withhold his approval to avoid the necessity of sending in an estimate. In every possible Way will Gen. Harrison s term be charged with expenses already land question in Congress. The last advices from Washington Are that the land Bill still continues to engross the time of the Senate upon which nearly every member has expressed his views. Messes. Smith and White of this slate both opposed or. Calhoun s project and favored Preemption and the distribution of the proceeds. We have seen or. Smith s speech on the subject and we shall take great pleasure in spreading it before our readers at an Early Day. We have not seen or. Whites but it has appeared in the Globe. We shall publish it immediately succeeding the publication of or. Smith s. Congress repeal of the so thursday the 28tli ult in tii Senate of Indiana presented a joint Resolution of the legislature of this state requesting her senators and representatives in Congress to procure if possible by their exertions Atas Eady a Day As May be in their Power a repeal of the sub Treasury Law passed at the last session of Congress. In presenting the Resolution or. S. Said the fir to remarks of any length he had made to the Senate after he had taken his seat at the session of Congress were in opposition to its passage. Lie had continued to oppose it until it became a Law and he now assured the Senate and his state that it afforded him Usif it Ign cd pleasure to know that his course had been approved of by those whom he desired to represent fairly on All questions that might arise in that body. Lie said he supposed he need scarcely advertise any one of his intention to Eairy out the wishes of his state in the mutter As there could be no doubt upon that subject and whenever tie Resolution of the senator from Kentucky for the repeal of the Law should be before the Senate he would Tonko the occasion to that which his own sentiments As Well As the request of his legislature required of him. The Resolution was then read Laid upon the table and ordered to be printed. The same Day in the House we notice the follow ing proceedings in relation to the Grant of land to this state for the ext Enmon of the Wabash and Erie canal from the Mouth of Tippecanoe to Terre haute. Wabash and Erie canal. After the committee of the whole had Arisen or. Proffit of Indiana obtained the floor and said he hoped the House would take some action upon the Bill which had so Long been the subject of debate and on which All had made up their . We had heard Long lectures delivered on the subject of wasting the Lime of the House by gentlemen who were now occupying two or three Days each discussing the us Ion of the Tariff and a Hundred other irrelevant questions and now alien the session was rapidly drawing to a close without any thing beneficial to the Cou Witry having been accomplished we were adjourning at 2 or 3 o clock apparently mindful of nothing but our personal comforts. He or. A was to reach a measure of vital importance to his Staiff tie Bill confirming a Grant of land to the Wabash and Erie canal and would move that the Flou e now resolve itself into a committee of the whole on that Bill. The question being put the House was found to be without a quorum and then adjourned. Or.

Irate s Betti Ancs on the Bill fixing the salaries of treasurer auditor and s in rotary of state. Or. Pee silent tie proposition before the Senate is the amendment offered by myself to the Bill of the House fixing the salaries of auditor Secretary and treasurer of state. For the purpose of presenting this matter fairly to , that they May vote Uii Terstand singly a on the amendment i will in the first place Call their attention to to e provisions of the Bill of the House or so much then of As is proposed to be stricken out. Sir the first Section of said Bill fixes the salary of the auditor at one thousand dollars per annul and in addition thereto for clerk hire the sum of four Hundred dollars is allowed him in All fourteen Hundred dollars. The second Section fixes the salary of treasurer of state at one thousand dollars per Anfinn and in at edition thereto for clerk hire the sum of four Hundred dollars is allowed him in All making fourteen Hundred dollars and the third Section fixes the salary of Secretary of stale at eight Hundred dollars annually and in addition thereto for clerk hire the sum of three Hundred dollars is allow him in All the sum of eleven Hundred dollars. The amendment proposes to fix the salaries of auditor i in j Trees hirer a it the sum of one thousand dollars each annually and the salary of the Secretary of state at eight Hundred dollars annually inclusive of clerk hire and All perquisites whatever which amendment if adopted by the Senate will produce a saving to the state annually of eleven Lindred dollars. In the second place sir i will beg leave to trespass upon the time and patience of the Senate whilst i refer them to the Law now in Force regulating the annual salaries of auditor treasurer and Secretary of state. Sir the auditor and treasurer of states salaries Are now by Law fixed at the sum of four Hundred dollars each annually and the annual salary of Secretary of stale at six Hundred dollars. True sir this Law passed when the state was in her infancy and has remained up to this time without being repealed by Previ us Legislatures or in any manner changed and during All Liis time when the citizen s has been direct a to the Law authorizing and regulating the salaries of these officers he could have come to no other conclusion than that those officer s salaries Vivero finitely fixed by Law at the sums aforesaid for their is a vices As auditor treasurer and Secretary of state and All Trust be satisfied that their present salaries Are inadequate to the services required of them by the state Witti Kuithe perquisites now received by them but former Legislatures in lieu of directly raising thei salaries have by their acts imposed Aridi tonal duties up i them for which they have severally received a compensation by Way of perquisites until it is said that each of those officers have for several years received inclusive of their annual salaries the Siim of two thousand dollars out of the state Treasury making annually received by those officers the sum of six thousand dollars. This in my opinion is not what it should have been. These officers should have Lead their salaries definitely fixed without those perquisites and thereby the evil if which we now complain never could have been brought about but the evil being now upon us it is our duty to remedy it not by reducing the salaries of those officers so Low that they cannot live by them but by fixing them at such sums As shall be equivalent to the services required by them severally to be performed and also afford them a decent support. I am bound to Admire the spirit in part of the Bill of the House because it dons remedy in part the evil which now exists by definitely .Xing the salaries of those officers and this should be one of the objects of our legislation otherwise those officers May to induced As heretofore to hang on to the state Treasury like so Many leaches sucking out her very life s blood by continually imploring the legislature to i to pc on them additional duties that they May receive additional compensation not As a salary but As perquisites. This we should cautiously avoid or All the evils which we Are now called upon to remedy will involuntarily steal into our legislation again and those officers in a few years May look upon their stated salaries As Mere ciphers compared with the perquisites annually received by them and the people As heretofore remain ignorant of the fact that those officers Are in the annual receipt of some two or three thousand dollars each. This is an evil which i for one wish to guard against by avoiding every thing in the shape of a perquisite to either of those officers so that in future when gentlemen desire to present their claims befit a the legislature As candidates that they May know at the time Uliey so what their salary will be annually thereby avoiding All conjecture and expectation of an increase of their salaries by Way of perquisites. Sir the Bill of the House contains one feature that is anti democratic and anti Republican. It is this it proposes indirectly to give those officers under the Guise of clerk hire the sum of eleven Hundred dollars annually. If these of ulcers Are so far removed above the Ordinary circles in life by their promotion that it would be a disgrace to them to discharge any or All of the duties of to Weir respective offices then sir they ought to have those clerks but until i am convinced of that fact i shall oppose that feature in the Bill Vav Iii ii gives Saij officers the Power of having their duties discharged by clerks and for that purpose impose Addi Isimal Burthen upon the people. The people not expect the present legislature to create by Law additional expenses by giving those officers each a clerk to that which should be made the duty of those officers to discharge themselves. No sir the people expect the present legislature to carry out the doctrines by Vliem loudly proclaimed during the passed canvass which has but so lately resulted in putting the advocates thereof in Power Viz Reform and retrenchment. This Bill in part does to retrench and limit the salaries of those officers far below what they have been receiving heretofore inclusive of the perquisites but in has an obnoxious feature in it. It proposes to give them indirectly what should be Given directly if at All. But sir i am firmly of opinion that the sum of one thousand dollars per annul is a salary sufficiently Large to compensate the auditor and treasurer of state and eight Hundred dollars a compensation equivalent to the services required of the Secretary of s ate. Sir the several circuit judges in this state receive the annual salary of one thousand dollars each and i am satisfied that their services Are More onerous than the services required either of auditor treasurer or Secretary of state. Then Why give them any thing More unless because at a time when the state is least Able to pay then the representatives of the people Are the most Liberal and profuse in their action. Yes sir when bankruptcy threatens us then shall we be most Liberal no hut our liberality should be with an Eye single to the Means of the state and the services required to be performed by those officers. In conclusion i will say to senators that the adoption of the time dment will be a saving to the state of eleven Hundred dollars annually and be a compensation equiv Al it to the services required of those officers therefore i urge its adoption. From tic Cincinnati Republican Jan. 27. Gen. Harrison s departure for the East. Yesterday at about 12 o clock Gen Harrison took his departure from our City from his own West. At an Early hour crowds of citizens congregated in front of the Clenric House to see him for the last time previous to his entering upon the important duties of the presidency. To to numerous assemblage was not composed entirely of his political friends. Many who opposed his election were there seeming to have forgotten their opposition and appearing to feel that they were assembled to pay their Respecta to him who had been selected by the free and ii bought Suffrages of his fellow citizens to discharge the duties of the most important office in the a world. Several of our splendid military companies without any previous understanding were on the ground to escort the Gallant old chief rom his quarters to the Steamboat Ben. Franklin which conveys him to Pittsburgh. The Day was Cloudy and the streets Muddy a Carriage had been provided to convey him to the River but he preferred walking. Lie was escorted by the Greys and Washington cadets and an immense crowd of citizens. The Sitivi Nibles were on Board the boat and the citizens guards came Down a Short Lime after he reached the boat to fire a parting Salute. The crowd upon the wharf was immense front 12 to 15 thousand had assembled to take leave of their Friend and Benefactor and of the nation s the Sceno Way touch King and Sublime. The Manial music the military display the Cannon s Roar from i Tiger Shore tin Vasi multitude the mingling of those who had so recently been engaged in fierce political strife to get a last look at Iii who was the nation s Hope was a scene which i no one could witness unmoved. We never saw the general More deeply of of tiled than when from the deck of the boat in a Sciort address he Kcuik leave of the assembled me spoke of the difference of his feelings then from the time when he had landed at that spot in his Yout i an Humble Ensign in the army of his country. He briefly contrasted the appearance of the country then when All around was a dense and dark Forest except where occasionally the Humble log Cabin varied the scene. The Paiit Iier s scream and the fierce yell of the Savage were then almost the Only sound that broke upon Tho stillness of the night. The Hardy Pioneer who at Liat Day Iliad thus far penetrated the wilds of the West was to Dai Igors of every kind in establishing a Home and procuring subsistence for his family. Lie spoke Iiri Efly of Tho condition of this Rich Valley 7202<i, of the highly cultivated Fields the Beau ii Ful cities that had sprung up As if by magic of the Security peace and plenty that every where prevailed of the Noble steamboats which had in so Short a period taken Tho place of the rude Canoe of the Pioneer of the almost incr Dibie Speed with which they wafted to our doors the comforts and luxuries of every clime. When he a poke of the Pari to Iliad borne in Allih so changing scenes of the interest he had always Felt in the loved West of the slanders that had been heaped upon him and the proud vindication by his countrymen from All these charges by the recent triumphant verdict of a nation of Freeman there was no heart in All that vast crowd unmoved. When he spoke of the vast responsibilities of his station of inc importance of the duties that awaited him of the anxiety he Felt to Disch Arije aright no one in st coed in the Poison of prejudice could for a moment doubt that honesty of purpose and the nation s weal would be Bis corp ass and his Polar Star. Lie Askell that his opponents would cease their railings Anjain st i measures in Advance that they would judge him by his acts and if Linen they found Hirn varying from the course he had to pursue if they Frimd him deviating from the High Road of Ciui due democracy to Felt that he would Nickit their condemnation Aud rebuke. His address was Brief and we heard him but indistinctly and therefore cannot pretend to give any thing but a Brief outline of his remarks. The boat left the wharf about 12 o Cleck. She Vas crowded with citizens of this Placo and Louisville who will accompany him to Pittsburg. Some Halfa dozen of i intimate friends will accompany him throughout his journey. So a rasping have Boon he invitations lie has received and so great is Trio of met by on his route to see Tim that we think it probable he will not reach Washington much before the 11th or i2ih of february. The City was thronged throughout Friday and saturday and the Vicinity of the hotel for squares in All directions presented a dense mass of human beings pressing Forward to get a glimpse at the nation s president the people s Friend. The Day was a proud one for the old Fulero. The enthusiasm of the people was great and the manner in which Tho City had been arrayed with flags banners streamers and so Forth for the reception of the distinguished and Belovol Man who was to be its guest equalled the grand displays in our Western cities during the late canvass. General Harrison was to leave Pittsburgh yesterday and proceed As far As Brownsville with of pennsylvanians and in a vehicle which had been provided for that purpose. We have not one tolerant feeling for Man worship but to record with pleasure these manifestations by tue people of deep and heart Fth respect for an old Aud tried servant who has been for years a mrk for the Enven Omed arrows of an arrogant action of Power. The expediency of holding a District convention for the purpose of nominating a suitable candidate for Congress in this District it will be perceived by reference to some extracts published in this paper is now agitated in different parts of this widely District. In our View of the matter no better plan could be devised to bring about a fair understanding Harmony and us Amidity of feeling in he whig ranks and ensure Succes at the with a greater degree of certainty than but to Quot Eole a ung matter promptly in hand holding township meetings county conventions and a hereby concentrating the will and wish Lesof the whole people in a District convention and upon some one of the Many talented individuals residing therein whom the party could fully confide in and who would represent not misrepresent their will and wishes in Congress. A More Complete organization of the democratic whig party of the District would be brought about by adopting this plan when Well and harmoniously United understanding Tho different views and opinions held in the several counties would be Able the better to succeed Over any and every opposition that might be got up. Much Good results from conventions of this nature Neu properly brought about and conducted it seems to us the very Way successfully to Complete with our Ever watchful and Well organized and trained self Tyler democratic opponents. Tie whigs of the District have now the Ascendancy and by a Lillo care and precaution can easily keep the advantage gained which by discord and negligence which has been to often the Case in times ast Boas easily lost. The place in the District for holding the convention to us is of minor importance those having the Good of the people at heart would we Are satisfied be Willine to meet almost any where suitable whether or not Juit at the Centre. Any notice of a meeting of our citizens for the purpose above designated that our friends May see fit to give us will be published in Gaz. De by the faculty an Opportunity will be give i after the present session to the Junior class to enjoy the advantages of instruction by the president along with their other studies in those of his department.
