The Bill to suppress the circulation of unauthorized Bank paper commonly called Shi plasters was read the third time and passed. This Bill which has passed both houses provides that All such diaper shall be considered fraudulent and null and void in Law and All contracts fit under thereon Are declared void it also makes the Issue of such paper a penal offence cognizable by a grand jury and upon conviction fined not less than fifty nor More than five Hundred dollars for each offence. In the House on Friday the Bill to abolish capital punishment came on its third Reading when or. Mason moved that it be indefinitely postponed. The motion was warmly opposed by messes. Bowles Champer Sweetser Lancaster Blankenship and Dur bin and supported by messes. Futler of v., Dunbar Conwell and Ritchey. The question on the postponement was not agreed to when the Bill passed. On saturday or. Smith a f f., chairman of the committee on canals and internal improvements made a report of great length and interest in relation to the Public works of the state accompanied by a Bill for the classification and further prosecution of the works. The Bill provides that the works shall be divided into three classes As follows the Whitewater canal from Brookville to the National Road the Madison and Indianapolis rail Road from Vernon to Edinburgh the new Albany and Vincennes Turnpike Road from Paoli to Vincennes except the Meta Ling and Bridges Over the two branches of White River and the improvement of the rapids of the Wabash to constitute the first class. The Michigan and Erie canal the North ern division of the Central canal and the rail Road from Edinburg to Indianapolis to constitute the second class. The Southern division of the Central canal the Road from Jeffersonville via new Albany to Crawfordsville the Road from Indianapolis to Lafayette the Meta Ling and Bridges Over White River on the Vincennes and n. Albany Road the Whitewater canal from the National Road to the Mouth of nettle Creek and the connexion Between the Whitewater canal and the Central canal to constitute the Iii a class. It further provides that neither of the works in the second class shall be prosecuted until those in the first class Are completed and the same in relation to the third class until the second Are completed and alos authorizes the fund commissioners to sell state Bonds bearing six per cent interest either for Cash or to persons who will undertake the completion of the works. The Wabash canal South of Lafayette is not a provided fur in the Bill from the belief that the state will acquire sufficient lands from the general govern a ment to Complete it in that event the committee recommends its entire separation from the Quot system Quot and to be prosecuted As pastas Means Are obtained for a that purpose. Or. Morgan from the minority of the modification committee made a report Adverse to the report of or. Jones from the majority of the same committee made some Days since which was accompanied by a Bill to modify the system of internal improvement. This Bill provides that the works shall be divided into five classes As follows the White water canal from Lawrence Burgh to the National Road and the Madison and Indianapolis rail Road from Madison to Edinburgh shall constitute the first class. The new Albany and vice ones Turnpike the Northern and of the Central canal from Indianapolis to Kil Buck Summit including the Munc Eitown Ceder the Cross Cut canal Between the eel River feeder dam and Terre haute and the Madi on and Indianapolis rail Road Between Edinburgh and Indianapolis shall constitute the second class. The Southern division of the Jeffersonville and Crawfordsville Road Between Jeffersonville and Salem and the Northern division Between Greencastle and Crawfordsville the Indianapolis and Lafayette Road Between Crawfurd Viln and Lafayette and so much of the Northern division of the Central canal As is not included in the second class shall constitute the third class. The Erie and Michigan canal Liall constitute the fourth class. And All the works not included in either of the foregoing classes shall constitute the fifth class. The Bill further provides that the fund commissioners shall dispose of the securities taken for state Boi ids now sold and apply the proceeds to the prosecution of the works and they Are also authorized to sell Bonds to contractors on the works in payment for labor performed not to exceed two Hundred thousand dollars for the year 1841, bearing 6 per cent interest. The House was engaged the whole afternoon of saturday in committee of the whole on the Bill Quot to value the property of the state Quot and the Quot Bill prescribing the duties of county those Are a series of Bills which Are designed to revolutionize the present Mode of assessing and collecting the Revenue of the stale. We received a communication from or. Ewing in reply to the one published in our last by or. Wright Loo late for publication in to Day s paper. For the journal. To the editors of the in or Ana journal in the abstract Iii your reporter made of remarks on the Bill restricting each voter to his own township i am made to say Quot that i wished a provision inserted in the Bill reciting that whereas the citizens of the various counties of this state were in danger of being influenced by a clique at the county seat Quot &.c. I Seldom Ever Correct any printed report of remarks but the above error makes appear in rather a ridiculous Light. What i really said was. That gentlemen who advocated the Billon this ground would dislike to vote for tie Bill with a preamble containing such a recital and i contended that any reason which was too ridiculous to be inserted in the preamble of an act ought not to influence senators in casting their votes. You will Confer a favor on by inserting this correction in your next. As the reporter does not pretend to give More than an abstract i deem it unnecessary to notice any verbal inaccuracy in the report. Yours respectfully j. C. Eggleston. We arc permitted to make the following extracts from a letter just received by j. L. Williams a a. From the Hon. Samuel b. Ruggles president of the new York Board of canal commissioners which will be interesting to some of our readers inasmuch As they show the importance attached to our Public works by experienced men in that state. Quot the splendid results of our canal business at Buffalo during the year that has just passed must fix the attention of our citizens More than Ever to the importance of a speedy development of the leading lines of the Interior Scales. We Are impatiently awaiting the completion of your great Wabash canal anticipating it results not less important than those have actually experienced from the Ohio canal. In truth May Well expect a larger accession of Trade from the Wabash than from the Ohio Quot our Board of canal commissioners wish also to refer to this subject for the purpose of stating to our legislature the Zachial present condition of the works to which look As future tributaries to our enlarged canal and to enable our legislature to judge How rapidly they ought to crowd Forward that very costly work. Quot i therefore beg of you the favor to Send to at Albany where i shall be during most of the coming session a copy of your usual annual report and if it is not asking too much of your kindness i would feel quite obliged if by an Early mail you would state to by letter "1st. How Many Miles of the Wabash canal remain to be completed 2d. Is the canal or Railroad from Indianapolis to the Wabash canal in rapid Progress and when will it be completed Quot Here follow a number of additional inquiries which Are omitted Quot i beg you to excuse the number of the questions above put and to take them As evidence of the Strong interest feel in the rapid completion of your important system and since i have gone so far in the matter let ask one More favor which is to Send the population of each of your counties and also the productions of each so far As it is returned by the recent census and if not wholly Complete such part of it As is now ascertained. We look upon the unprecedented development which is Goinsjr on in Ohio and Indiana As a most interesting fact in the history of american civilization and fraught with consequences of the greatest magnitude. The granaries of Indiana Are destined to exercise a commanding Sway Over the vianufacluri/7gand commercial interests of Ike Atlantic Stales hut cannot make our people actually Eli that fact until the boats commence running from Tho Wabash to Lake Erie. Rest assured that the Public men who now manage the altars of new York will never rest until the works in the West Are made available and that they vill firmly stand by in any constitutional measures necessary to secure the Aid of the general government. We rejoice to see that your governor takes a Wise and Liberal View of the land question. The proceeds invested in your canals will sow the seeds of a never ending Harvest of wealth and a late Sangamon 111.&Quot journal says that or. Peck from the committee on finance in the Illinois legislature reported Buck a referred to them enquiring Quot if the state credit can longer be sustained and if so to report a plan for that purpose Quot and asked to he discharged from the Jurther consideration f the subject in effect declaring that the committe Whoso obvious province it is to take charge of this matter saw to Hope of further sustaining the state cred it. To what Depths of Dishonour an degradation will the evil Genius of Locopo Chism yet sink that devoted state Trust there is yet too much virtue remaining amongst her citizens to Sanction such a flagrant violation of the sacred principles of honesty Justice and Cabinet speculations. A Washington correspondent of a the new York times and Star writing under Date of Jan. 2, holds the following language in speaking of those who Are Likely to compose a part of Gen. Harrison s Cabinet Quot with regard to the Cabinet i am inclined to think that or. Bel will receive the offer of the War department. This appointment would probably give More satisfaction than any other that could be made. Or. Bell s Long services Brilli Iuit abilities and the Well known Peculiar Ada tation of his talents to the duties of that position could not fail to Render him universally acceptable to the lioness of All parties in the country. There is but one plausible objection to his appointment which arises from the place of his residence. It is conceded that two of the Cabinet officers will the chosen from Western states Viz or. Crittenden from Keiit i cry and or. Ewing from Ohio. If another should be selected from Tennessee some might disposed to complain that too much of Western interest was repress filed in the Cabinet. This would be an objection however to none but very narrow minds. Tho general belief is that or. Ewing will receive the appointment of Post master . Some have been inclined to believe however that the Post office department would be conferred on senator Smith of Indiana and that or. Ewing would be appointed Secretary of the Treasury. I am not inclined to attach any importance to this Rumor. Or. Smith is an intelligent industrious hard working Man would nevertheless be most excellently adapted to the department of the Post office. Various other amendments were offered to or. Test s amendment which were voted Down. Or. Test s amendment was then lost. Numerous other amendments were offered and lost one by or. Hanna that nothing in the act shall be so construed As to prevent Tho expenditure of the unexpended balance of the four Hundred thousand dollars heretofore appropriated on the Madison and Indianapolis rail Road which was decided in the affirmative by the casting vote of tie president.

The report of the select committee on modification to Wirich the Bill suspending the further a prosecution of the Public works had been referred and reported Back with an amendment came up in order. Several motions to Amend and to Lay on the table were a Vir. Pakker moved to concur in the report of the committee by striking out the amendment and inserting in lieu thereof the following Yusi tute Sec. Liat the several Public works the construction of which was contemplated by the act of 183g, shall be classified in three classes As follows to wit the White water canal to the National Road the Madison and Indianapolis rail Road the new Albany and Vincennes Tirui Ike Road except the Metal infer West of Paoli and the Bridges Over the two White Rivers the grading and bridging of the line of Turnpike Road running Greencastle tii rough Ciao Fordsville to Lafayette and the Finizii Iii of the turn like Road from Jailer Sonville to Salem shall constitute the first class.

A joint on the subject of amending the Constitution of the United states. The joint Resolution in relation to a National Bank being on its third Reading. When entered Frimd i in. Bowles arguing that it was not Safe to sposite the National revenues in a Bank of the United states and that the establishment of such an institution would be found to be injurious to the West generally and particularly so to Indiana. Or. addressed Tho House at considerable length. He went into an explanation of what had been said by him on the previous Day and expressed ill handsome terms his sense of obligation to the whig part of the House for the Magnani Motis manner in which they supported him on that occasion in allowing him to be heard on the question when the Call of the ayes and noes had proceeded As far As to his name. He would go to the origin of Tho United states Bank and inquire what were the views and feelings of the parties who first its establishment from which a Correct estimate might be derived of motives which actuated those who now advocated its revival. He said Itiat the original establishment of the Bank .s a Federal measure and repudiated by the whigs of that Day. The whigs of the present Day were acting upon the views of the old federalists. He quoted the works of Thomas Jefferson to show that he Jeff Irson was hostile to a National Bank and believed such an establishment to be opposed to the free institutions of the country. That the whigs were federalists under another name first calling themselves republicans the name alone was chanted their principles remained. He referred to the Hartford convention As having for its object the Dis severing of the Union and that the Bank was an instrument used by the federalists for the subjugation of the people and for changing the form of government to As near an approach to monarchy As possible. Alexander Hamilton advocated the establishment of a United states Bank for the purpose of bringing about the British form of government. Gen. Washington was the first to use the veto Power first in a Case relative to representation. He afterwards used it on several occasions arid now his followers and admirers did not like the president of Tho United states to use that Power. Washington signed the Bank charter because his Cabinet was equally divided upon the question and Congress had voted for it and although he was personally opposed to it he was averse to maintaining his own opinion in opposition to that of Cim Gress when he was unsupported by his Cabinet. At that time or. Haines life was of greater importance to the federalists than that of Gen Ertil Washington and if to had not signed the Bank charter the probability is that he would have been dropped assassinated. He showed that general Harrison was of opinion that the Constitution did not provide for c. National Bank but lie was in favor of paper Money because he believed it to be a Means by which the poor Man might become Rich without bending his neck to colossal wealth. In reference to the arguments used by the whig party during the canvass he referred to the Groat gathering sri of the people in different places and to the exhibitions which were made by them. On one occasion there .s a vehicle drawn As the newspaper from which he read expressed it by a team of Twenty four Yoke of oxen and a brass band. That was a Strong a frument. He was sorry to see the High and talented whig party condescend to arguments like these. They were insulting to the understanding of the people. The people in every country were easily excited All men were liable to excitement but that said nothing against the intelligence of the people. The last election was carried by excitement More than by argument. Tho people Vivere not allowed time for reflection and reasoning and to believed that some persons who under the influence of excitement in their own minds had excited other already know and Felt that they had been deceived and Liat re action would soon take place in an outraged and insulted Community. He was a Farmer and professed to know something of the feelings and interests of that class of the Community. What they asked was to Cive them fair prices with firmness and stability so that they might form an idea of the future prices of produce and to guided in their operations accordingly. A National Bank would have the effect of flooding the country Wilh paper Money excite speculation and extravagance and ultimately overwhelm the country Wilh ruin. He showed that during the existence of the Bank labor was lower than it is now then wages were at seven dollars a month now under a democratic administration they had risen to twelve. Alien the articles of Coffee Tea sugar Broadcloth and others were too High in Price. People used Wiiest and Rye As substitutes for Coulee and in several farm houses the use of sugar could be afforded on sunday Only. Tho Case was different now these things could be enjoyed by All while Tho prices of articles of import Talion ranged so High what was the Case with the productions of the country pork from a Dollar to a Dollar and a half the Hundred Corn ten cents a Bushel and other things in proportion. Under a democratic administration these things had risen in Price. Instead of a National Bank he advocated supporting the state Hanks. If the paper of Indiana were made receivable for Public dues it. Would be As Good in new York or anywhere As any other paper. Or. Simitzi of Would beg and to say something on the question. When he heard the gentleman yesterday express a wish to discuss the subject he Quot did not expect to hear a stereotyped speech which he had heard a thousand titties. Whether such a speech was worthy of notice or not was a matter of doubt to him. He thought time might be belter the gentleman believed that some of to e whigs were already on the Stool of repentance for having acted As they had done. If there was a Man in the House deserving the name of whip would arise in his place and throw Back Tho enormities which had been committed by the Loco Foco party. The Wiigs were Iii Inaten by a spirit As pure and As holy As that which animated the whigs of Tho revolution. Should they be ashamed of such a course As they had pursued mid were pursuing sooner would he have his Arm torn from his body. What had the whigs to be ashamed of they had prostrated Loco Foco ism not by hard cider not by Coon skins not by shows and processions nor by excite meet but by reason and food sense they had saved their country from he remembered twelve years ago when he who it said was born to command was elected to the presidency the democrats United to erect that fabric the United Siales Bank but it was found to be inconvenient because it would not Bend to his will. He vetoed the Bill for its recharger and then they threw up their Caps into the air shouting Hosannah to general Jackson for he has vetoed the a tinted slates Bank the Bank Vas advocated by the greatest politicians and statesmen but a few demo Cal tvs overthrew Tho arguments of these statesmen and politicians and found tic to be unconstitutional. Vav Hen were the evils arising from a United states Bank .scovered? not till they were taught by the modern Loco Foco doctrine. By the doctrines of the Loco focus the people Sii Ould have no opinion of their own. He believed that Many would be now in favor of a National Bank but when it was found that Martin Van Buren was opposed to it they must be so too. The same was the Case with regard to the Independent Treasury although individuals of the party May Boot posed to it., yet when Martin Van Buren comes out they Hosannah to him. The gentleman would not resort to barbecues and parades and Fandango. No but he would depress the people and if he could not gel lawyers he would get some one else. No sir they Cotile not get lawyers. The gentleman had dragged from their tombs the names of some of the greatest patriots of the country that they might be subjected to the touch of unholy Loco Foco ism. He him to prove that general Harrison had stated that he would never veto any Bill that Congress Tho tight proper to pass. It was a foul calumny and ought to he consigned to that obscurity in which the doctrine which gave Rise to it ought to lie. When he saw gentlemen occupying that Houise with Billingsgate Slang and fails Hood he could not let it pass in silence. Or. Rii in by asked whether the Gen Leinan had any personal allusion to him in his last remark. Or. of Said he did not impute intentional falsehood to him but certain facts which had been stated a Ere not True although they were commonly reported. He wished to see discussion carried on in a Cool statesmanlike manner and if gentlemen departed from that line they could not expect that such deviations would pass quietly. Or Olaui Wotila detain the House for a few minutes Only. 1-0 found that gentlemen could speak Lars rely without ideas. We have had said he a wonderful Tornado of words from the gentleman on left or. Henley which i not mean to reply to because i expect the rules it of the House would be belter attended to by keeping to the subject in debate. Now tie ii Nelleman has read to us an immense Quantity of Muier n t at All connected Wilh the subject. I was reminded of a circumstance of a preacher who to write his sermons. He wrote them in a neat Little Book which he placed snugly in the Middle of the Bible which was open before him so that the people below could not see it and thus he read it Leaf after Leaf. A boy used to seat himself in the gallery just Over the pulpit in such a position As to see the Bible and the Little Book and upon one. Occasion when he saw the preacher come to the last Leaf of his Little Book he exclaimed Quot the Blessing has come at last the last Leaf is turned Quot i was much pleased to see tie last Leaf turned. But then came other matters extra globes and other papers. He told us of dreadful times. There was neither Tea nor Coffee nor sugar i waited and he went on in a regular course of Billingsgate As to Lead Nieto suppose that he had indulged in that sort of language Many a sane time ago i was proceed Nir in the gentleman s own county it was then called Clark s Grant and a Little girl who had nut Eti Joyed Many privileges of education came to to show the preacher the pro it press that she had made in her learn info. She read or spoke Over ii first Page of her spelling books a Bab be he i bib and so Forth 0, but said she i can More than that she turned Over the Leaf and went on by a blab be Bio a i i Bli and so on. I a ked her if she knew any More. No she knew no More on the Book but she could say More off and she spelt such words Asba kor but scr cider and so on. I Little thought then that cider would become so popular. So the gentleman seems to have got his lesson off Book but has Only got As far As two but of All the attempts at Are Rumen that i Ever heard i certainly never heard any like this. The gentleman ought to have a Patent right for it. He seems to have As great a hatred for Hamilton he has of Burr. He Hais told us a great Deal that was done by the federalists when they used to talk about the Bank and he displayed an array of , such As Washington Madison Monroe chief Justice Marshall and others All respectable names and Ull in favor of a Bank. And after these men had lived their Day and shone like stars up Juines a Nincompoop and puts them All Down. I submit sir whether these names or that of Tho gentleman from Clark is the More to intelligent people such argument must be looked upon As insulting to Timeir understanding it May for a pared of boys around a stump. I shall not argue Tho question now i shall Only say that gentlemen who use such arguments have got no farther than the a a a of politics. When the gentleman was describing the log Cabin it seemed to that perhaps to had taken some of the fruit and formed his ideas under the influence which it produced. It has a baneful inf Tience sometimes. Did you Ever see a cow Buckeye or. Speaker gentlemen Are so inveterate against a National Hank that they go out of their Way to oppose it like John Randolph who it was said would go Severn rod>3 out of his Way for the pleasure of kicking a sheep. The whigs of the revolution were decent men and slept with decent White women All their lives.
