Logansport Canal Telegraph (Newspaper) - January 16, 1836, Logansport, Indiana A ddts Poir by s. Lasselle amp j. B. Dillon x , Indiana saturday Jan. 16, 1886. No. »7. A he was a beloved alike by a extract from the life Coward. My first son was named Leister Noble fair haired boy beloved al rents Connexions and servants but with All his nobleness i could discover one inherent feeling hereditary i think it must have been from his father of cowardice. Hours a Days did i think before 1 fixed upon a plan to cure him of this failing. To beat him the too common Mode of imparting instruction to Cli Ildron 1 knew would never answer for his temperament and i therefore determined to work upon his feelings. One Day we were passing a High Stone Post Flat and Square at the top i set him upon it and walked of to a great distance bade him stand erect at first lie was afraid but he overcame his timidity in a few moments. Quot now quot said i jump into my arms quot poor fellow he suffered from cowardice then he trembled and began to cry. In a few moments 1 tried him again Lut lie dared not nature was too Strong. Quot you Are a Coward quot said i putting him Down. He had never heard that word before lie knew not whatsit meant tho from the manner in which it was spoken he knew it meant Soui thing. It seemed to trouble him but he aft a cd to disregard it. He tried by a thousand playful innocent endearing tricks to Mike inc forget my , but All in vain. 1 so it myself to the Tiisik for 1 Tiew Wii at it was to be a Coward to have a heart Lull of cowardly Hlobil. Presently he left me and went to his Phil with an air Liat mad. My wife laugh at to and my theory in spite of quot Iier veneration for after a while he Rauie to ine Atid putting his Little arms around my neck kissed me. 1 refused to return Liis Caress and putting Liim Down coldly repeated tiie words quot you arc a again he went to his play but More vehemently than in fore and i observed while 1 sat Reading Liat lie would now and then Stop Short in the mischief to Fiat employed drop whatever he had in Liis hands and sit motionless for a while As if something troubled him. Thank god though Lite my theory is beginning to work a cure lie came to me again and he was More serious he stretched out his Hittle arms and asked to be Tiff. 1 persisted however in spite of his Mottier s Beautiful eyes and put him from Nic. He was Hurt and went no More to his play. I sat and watched him without letting him see me. I observed every movement of his face and . The next morning i left town and was absent for a week. On my return the moment i alighted Leister was at my Side and put both of his hands into mine. 1 saw that he wanted to say something and waited for him to speak. Quot father quot said he quot poll the tears were in his eyes i could have hugged the Little Rascal to my heart but i dared not i dared not till the whole trial was Over. It might be Haz arding Little but it was my duty to Hazard nothing. 1 took him to the same Post i went further or than before. 1 saw his Little face change color. To him it was terrible to me nothing for i could catch him. Lie Huiai self he held his great in be is iut his eyes and leaped. 1 aug it Librn and kissed him. 1 sobbed aloud for my Liepart ran Over. Quot now Tatlier quot said he As soon As he could get his breath quot now fut Iier am i a Toz card he could not even pronounce the word but he never forgot it he was cured. And on i death bed it would have strangled him to have called him Coward. Selected but having a proportion of them of other shapes adapted to fit around the sides of the ships so As to leave no space As happens with casks. The number is probably 150, As far As we could judge from looking at them As we did a Day or two since under the guidance of some of the polite and attentive officers stationed at the a Noble ship. The following door option of the Fine ship of the line Penns Ivania we copy from the Phila Delphiia Gazette promising that it is now time to launch that ship to tit her for sea and Lay Down another keel for a vessel of similar dimensions in her place. Quot the line of Battle ship Pennsyl Juiia. Now o i the stocks at our Navy Yard under the shelter of a building that Cost $45,000, is one of the most stupendous fabrics that was Ever destined to float on the Ocean. Her length on deck is 225 feet which is Twenty seven feet More than half Way from fifth to sixth Street in Chestnut and her breadth is 58 feet which is eight feet wider than Chesnut Street opposite the theatre including the Footway. She is Large enough to i Arry two thousand men which is a larger number than the whole american army that fought and gained the Battle of Chippewa and greater Tolian the population of a considerably sized county town. She is of the Burthen of 3000 tons and could if loaded with flour carry 39,000 barrels enough to Supply bread for fifteen thousand people for a whole year. She is to carry 140 guns thirty two ponders so that every time she discharges a broadside she will dispose of precisely a ton of Buhts to help to make Iron pebbles Ibi the Bott i of the Ocean unless she happens to hit the enemy. Slip will draw Twenty Eglit feet of water and thus Lind it difficult to navigate in Shoal Rivers. One of her anchors which is to be seen in the Yard and which is said to be the largest one in tie world weight 11,669 pounds which is something More Tolian five tons and will require some merry piping at the Cap Stern to get it speak. Her water tanks Are of Iron mostly in the shape of Large chests capable of holding 1 to 200 Gallons later from France. The packet ship Utica capt. Depeyster arrived at new York on monday morning bringing Paris papers to the evening of oct. 30th, and Havre to 31st, indemnity treaty. Letters says the new York journal of Commerce of monday p. A from the Best sources by the Utica say that a conciliatory message on the part of our president would put an end to All difficulty and ensure the payment of the Money. The Intercourse Between or. Barton and the French government had been entirely courteous and Friendly. The ministry replied to or. B s inquiry that Cis Init. Livingston s letter was written before quot the passage of the Bill to the Chambers they were desirous of something subsequent and that As the president of the United states has said he could say no More but should refer the matter to Congress they waited to see what would transpire on the Rne eting of Congress and in the mean time had forwarded despatches to the i Bench Harge at Washington. Or. Barton May possibly return and perhaps has As a consequence the French charge Alwog Home Butti iese events Oug it not to be looked upon As of great importance As it is confidently expected that the explanations made at the meeting of Congress will be suf a client. Or. Simon editor of the Charivari was on the 28th october sentenced to two months imprisonment and a Fine of 5000 franc for exciting hatred and contempt against the government. The editors of the Bon Sens and quot Dienne were tried on a similar charge for re publishing from the London Sun a very Vio ent article on the new Law relative to the Iress. They were both acquitted. The Only item respecting our affairs says the n. Y. American is the following article from the journal Des do bats which we deem important because this paper its the Organ of m. D. Broglie. The recall of our charge is it will be seen anticipated and it is announced that France will recall hers and Wail. From the journal Des do bats of 26th oct. Several papers have spoken of the recent news from the United states in a Way to produce an impression that the relations of the two countries Are soon about to be interrupted and that president Jackson refusing All explanation of the language of his message was about to have recourse to hostile measures. We have the strongest reason for believing Liat there is nothing in this that our relations with the United states Are still upon the same footing in a word that the whole affair remains precisely in tiie Uncertain state in which or. Iving Sioui left it. Whatever May be the present wishes o Gen. Jackson Wiio has already once been obliged to yield to the opposition in Congress upon this same question of hostilities he Wil hesitate certainly in taking measures upon his own Repon Sibily which might Lead to a collision and he would at least wait for the meeting of Congress in order to obtain their Sanction to resolutions of so much importance. Nevertheless Gen. Jackson docs not permit his intentions to transpire it is Only known that he is seeking to excite among the lower classes of the population a feeling of animosity against France to which he would afterwards appear to be yielding in asking authority from Congress to break with the French government. But among All other classes a Mong All men of substance and reflection opinion is loudly against any measures of a hostile Tenden y. Or. Van Buren the vice president who is of Gen. Jackson s party and the Chance of whose election daily increases does not Dis if the american Congress should decide the explanation was to be made to France it must reverse the executive function in order to Render such explanations possible for the message being the opinion of the president and the president having acted in the sphere of his duty in stating his opinion to Congress he cannot be required to say that what he put Forth As his opinion was not his opinion. Congress has Only one constitutional Mode of dissenting from the personal opinion of the president that of not voting for the measures he recommends. Has not this happened did not Congress decide that there was no ground to take into consideration the suggestions of the president is not this All the satisfaction the government could require the amendment of Gen. Valaze then in seeking More has Only attached an impossibility to the vote of the chamber and As that was a shameful vote we saw with pleasure that it was annulled by an amendment absurd on the part of those who really thought the 22 millions due. The Temps on the same subject and of the same Date says that m. De Broglie isun wiling that any controversy about a Mere matter of form should interrupt the Harmony Between the two countries while m. Humann the minister of finances insists on absolute and Clear exp Lanai ions. Hence a disagreement Between them. The Temps continues quot yesterday a Long conference was held Between m. De Broglie and m. Humann subsequent to a visit made by the charge d affaires of the United states to m. De Broglie. M. Humann it is said was More Pertina Cious than Ever not to make any payment without previous Clear and satisfactory the article of the journal Des do bats was subs quent to the interview above referred to and Speaks we presume the opinions that will prevail. Produced introduced some years since by the late Duke of Bedford called the larger spotted Woburn Breed. They Are very prolific Hardy and Well disposed to fatten attaining nearly twice the size and weight of other hogs. Anecdote of an English lady. One morning lately the Young and Beautiful wife of an English gentleman attended by one or two women servants went Early from her House in Scutari to enjoy the coolness of a dip in the Silver tide of the bosporus. Whilst bathing some Young turkish officers struck by her surpassing loveliness in so interesting a situation approached and stood riveted to the servants begged of them to withdraw but instead of complying with so reasonable a request they commenced saying so Many the celebrated Baron Humboldt calling on president Jefferson was received into his Cabinet. On taking up one of the Public journals which Lay upon tie table he was shocked to find its columns teeming with the most Wanton abuse and licentious calumnies against the president. He threw it Down with indignation quot exclaiming quot Why do you not have the fellow Hung who dares to write these abominable the president smiled at the Wrath of the Baron and replied quot what hang the guardian of the Public morals ? no Pir rather would i protect the spirit of Freedom which dictates even that degree of abuse. Put that paper into your pocket my Good Friend carry it with you to Europe and when you Bear any doubt the reality of american Freedom show them that paper and Tell them where you found quot but is it not shocking that virtuous characters should be so defamed quot replied the Baron. Quot i it their actions refute such libels. Believe me quot continued the president quot virtue is not Long darkened by the Clouds of calumny and the temporary pain which it causes is infinitely Over weighed by the safety it ensures against degeneracy in the principles and conduct of the Public functionaries. When a Man assumes a Public Trust he should consider himself As Public Winter in Washington. Tender things that the lady became excessively enraged being a woman of uncommon spirit she darted out of the water soon changed her bathing attire for a morning dress leaped into her Carriage and drove on straight to the Barracks where she Laid her complaint before the colonel insisting that the officers should be punished in her presence. Guards were sent and the Young gentlemen were traced to the House of a Friend where they were at breakfast. The colonel after reproaching them in no measured terms for daring to intrude upon the privileges of a harem told the lady that their Fate was in her hands they should receive the punishment that she decreed. Well said she to make sure of it i will punish them myself she then seized the thickest stick in sight and by making most Active use of it for a Quarter of an hour More or less she convinced her Gallant admirers of the truth of the proverb quil n y a Las de Rose sans Pines after this she had again leaped into her Carriage waved her fair land to the colonel and drove Home highly leased with the morning s adventure. Letter from constantinople. Shipwreck a ship from the Chari Efton courier office dated evening of the 10th ii it. States that the Schooner John Denison arrived hat morning from key West via Cape Florid reports the Schooner exit Sisson thence for Mobile went ashore on Carysfort reef 3d inst. And was compelled to throw Over the principal part of her cargo to get off. She was taken to key West by the wreckers considerably damaged in Hull they were obliged to keep to the pumps on the passage from the reef to key West to prevent her . The Pensacola Gazette says that in not a single instance since the change of Goverio ment has a Creole been convicted of any Infra Motis offence and we believe we May add nor of any other this remark embraces a it period of nearly fifteen years. They have a quot Oft and unconquerable sense of Honor of Ike a Charm preserves them Mieir own which against every temptation. How to judge merchant who acquired considerable of this world s gain by attention to business lately informed us How he decided v. Het hepa Man was fit to be trusted or not. He said whenever he saw a Farmer come in Riding or driving a Good fat horse he knew he could be relied upon. If his horse was poor he knew him careless and inattentive to his . Herald. The great West. The Valley of the Mississippi and the lakes includes a portion of fourteen states and territories and has a population exceeding one lord of the whole country. The Lake navigation is one thousand Miles that of the Rivers six thousand. So great an extent of course includes a diversity of climate a circumstance Lone which is unfavourable to the health of navigation. The total number of persons pm i Joyed in navigating these watch a is Selini Atco at forty three thousand being two thirds of the number of seamen in the foreign or coast no Trade of the United states. Semble his disapprobation of a rupture and in Case of his succeeding Gen. Jackson he world readily lend himself to an arrangement alike Conformable to the interest of the United states and the dignity of the election for the presidency will commence next March and it is not probable that the american government will take any positive Steps before that time. If Gen. Jackson should think fit to recall his charge d affaires France would recall hers and wait this position is prescribed to her by the vote of the Chambers. The National an opposition and Republican paper thus speculates on our affairs tie american Congress cannot give any explanations demanded of it the Constitution not affording to them any Means of obliging Gen. Jackson to make explanations if he is not disposed to do so. It is not understood in France what the Power of a chief magistrate responsible for Nis acts is. The president at the opening of each session is bound to communicate a message to Congress. This is an expression of the personal opinion of the president he is bound to make it frankly and owes no account of it to any foreign government. English hogs. The following description of English hogs which we copy from the last american edition of the Edinburgh encyclopedia will found to possess interest. The Bei Shire is a Small boned Breed and disposed to fatten quickly. It is the sort mostly fattened at the distilleries and is Good either for pork or Bacon. The chinese Breed the size of which is Small and the flesh delicate is to be met with in every country. It is the Best adapted for using As pork but is Seldom cured into Bacon being too Small for that purpose. The Gloucestershire Breed which or. Marshall supposes to have been formerly the pre tiling Breed of the Island is Large but ill formed. Its color in general is White. It is a very unprofitable sort and is chiefly confined to Gloucestershire Shropshire and the West o Devonshire. The Hampshire Breed is very Large but not so compact As the Berkshire. They Are White Well disposed to fatten and come up to a great weight when properly managed. The Herefordshire is a Large and useful Breed but not by any Means Superior to either the Berkshire or Hampshire. The Rudgwick Breed so called from a town of that name in Essex on the confines of Surry is supposed by or. Middleton to be the largest in the Island feeding to an extraordinary size and at two years old weighing nearly double or treble the weight of other sorts o hogs at that age. The Northampton Breed which Are regret chiefly in that country Are of a Large size but they do not fatten very kindly. The Breed o Shropshire is nearly similar to that of Northamptonshire. The swing Tail Breed Are not very numerous. Their size is Small their form Well proportioned. They Are Hardy and fatten to Good weight. I the Bedford Breed is a variety of Swine in Georgetown d. C. Dec. 16�?the canal which the Laie severity of the weather had partially closed is again open and several extensive arrivals of flour Are expected to Day and to Morrow. We Are glad to learn from the a Williamsport Banner that an expedient has seen put in practice there for keeping the canal open during the Winter by braking the ice which is Likely to prove completely successful. Interesting to Farmers. Short wheat a newly introduced kind of wheat spoken of with High comment Avion by a correspondent of the Farmer and Gardener was in May 1834, obtained in new York rom a polish Emigrant by a Farmer living in the Interior of Pennsylvania. Of this wheat he Farmer just mentioned raised a crop. He raises the Grain for its unrivalled Beauty its abundant yield its great produce of flour and its capacity to withstand Adverse seasons. For All these properties it is highly valued in to and from which country it originally comes. The Grain it is further said is beautifully White a the Berry rather Short and very plump whence it derives its name and it weighs j4i pounds per . Gazette. The axe. The Power of the american axe says la trobe in his Book on the United states and he skill with which it is wielded May Well excite the admiration of an european. The weapon itself is no More to be compared to the vile chopper commonly seen in the hands of one of our woodsmen than a Gimblet can be compared to a Centre bit. It is formed upon a different principles the handle is set far Forward and it acts upon the tree More from the wedge like form its own weight and the skilful swing which gives it impetus than from any great exertion of strength on the part o the woodsman. In fact sleight More than strength is employed in its use. The rapidity with which the huge Trees of the Forest fall be fore a single pair of Well swung axes is really marvellous and the axe May rank with Maize and steam As one of the three things which have conquered the Western world. Macklin s advice. I have often told you that every Man mus be the maker or Marrer of his own Fortune repeat the doctrine he who depends upon his incessant Industry and integrity depends upon patrons of the noblest and most exalted kind these Are the creators of Fortune and Fame the founders of famines and can never disappoint or desert you.
