I if kit a to a 0 a if Mumby s. Lasselle amp x. B. Dillon s vol,.�.lociansport, Indiana saturday March 13, 188�. To. A Congress. Air senat Friday february 5. Or. Tipton offered the following resolutions which lie one Day for consideration army of the United states. Resolved that the committee on military affairs be instructed to inquire whether the army is sufficiently numerous for the duties they Are required to perform and for the occupation of our various forts. A Esol Yed also. That the committee on military affairs inquire and report to the Senate whether in their opinion the pay and emoluments to Theofi Cosof the army is us Lucienl compensation for the services they Are required to perform. The Resolution having been read or. Tifton said this Resolution directs the committee on military affairs to inquire whether Pur army As at present organized is sufficiently numerous for the occupation four fortifications and the performance of the various other duties which necessarily devolve a upon in in submit inn the Resolution for the consideration of the a Nate i feel it to be my duty to accompany it with a few Bri f n Niarkos t explanatory of my motives of Toj Osin pc the inquiry. 1 do not wis ii to by con adored an alarmist any f Piave nor b Eno i Raed on by Iho re Iio a of Vir of l Picard.

Which will occasionally occur Between our Bordor inhabitants and the Neighb Orihood Indian tribes and 1 am convinced Itiat the Sun Way to prevent War is to be Well prepared for it. If we expect to keep peace with the Indian tribes we must provide and keep constantly stationed in Timeir immediate Vicinity an efficient military Force to Awe them into submission. 1 have waited until two months of the session has passed away hoping that so other senator better quasi died than myself would Institute this inquiry but seeing that such Lias not been the Case 1 have determined to move in it and beg honorable senators to examine amp decide upon this subject not As a party question but As one intended solely for the Good of our common country. 1 do it sir with great diffidence for Many reasons. 1 consider it a matter of some consequence and have no doubt that it will meet with opposition. The mover should possess More ability than 1 do to defend it. 1 have consulted no one. The measure is my own Ami i am answerable for it. I am aware Itiat the people of this country look with a jealous Eye upon every step taken to augment our military foce. The people when rightly informed a �11 do a what is right. The army in their army to e Money to support it is theirs the gov in Anent and 1 Feci issued that they desire to see the army sufficiently numerous to answer All the purposes for which it was created. Before i sit Down i will exhibit to the Senate a tabular statement showing the forts on our Seaboard As Well As on our Northwestern and Southwest turn Border occupied and unoccupied. When i have stated the facts 1 must leave it to those senators who represent the Seaboard to judge whether any additional Force is necessary there or not i of course do not pretend to determine. I have instituted the inquiry under the conviction that a More efficient Force is necessary in the West. I do not advocate the propriety of raising new regiments nor of increase my the number of corp missioner officers. 1 believe they Are sufficiently numerous already but 1 am confident that the rank and file of the army should be augmented by which measure we will place our peace establishment upon a much More respectable footing and make our army More efficient without incurring heavy additional expense. I have prepared tables showing the present distribution of the troops and the condition which oui military posts Are at present for the want of More men to preserve them. By these Slit events it is shown that in thee Stempe ariment on the Lakis and o i t Nese aboard there Are tvs Iris three Illary posts fourteen of which Are now without troops to Garrison them Ami of course liable be soon to go to a 9truc4ion. In the Western d in ailment there artist Wen in two posts nine of them us occupiers by troops Many of Tiese forts Are substantial Well Silti and capable of if properly occupied Atid preserved from fal Lin Otto ruin.

For to troops �11 Ihu Forit he Comprini in about fifty to sixty i High each so As of enable them to Render All the service required to be performed by an army. 3ur forts must be kept in repair and our guns and gun carriages preserved. Several companies live been recently removed from their stations to perform service in Florida two of these companies have been entirely cutoff by the indians thus Farthier reducing the number of the rank Atid file already too Small. By concentrating the troops in Florida the forts in Louisiana have been mostly left without men to preserve them. The unsettled state of affairs in Mexico and the actual War in Texas will cause a restive Ness Amoe the Indian tribes on the South Western Border of the United states which should not be unprovided for. Gen. Gaines we Are told has been ordered to the Frontier to prevent an interference by our indians with the enemies of on neighbors and it is possible that some portion of the Force now of tiie upper Mississippi will have to l e withdrawn and sent South. This will leave the Northwestern Frontier exposed to the mercy of the tribes on the upper Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. Not Liing but the pres. Nce of a Force sufficient to crush All oppor i tion will keep our indians Long quiet and it is our Wisest policy to provide that Force at this time. The presence of a respectable Force at i Oris Armstrong and Snelling in 18>l-3, a Ould Iliavi priv need the War with the souk win ii Cost us two and one half millions and a a in Pihir array of troops if station in d at on ing ind Tzimba Bay last year would Leri airily a a ave prevented the War now going Oit in rior Ida a War which will probably Cost lis o i to i Villi a a sorta just it or mainly quot end in e of the poor deluded Genii Violes. Or. T. Quot a Aid Itiat in relation to the second Resolution for increasing the pay and Emolu ment Sof the officers of the army he was not prepared to give an opinion that an increase wins necessary but he knew that there were some who thought an increase should be made in the compensation of some Grad s of the officers of our army. He considered the Oili cers of our army a most meritorious class of men they Brave the Dangere of every cling where the duty Calls them they risk their health their lives to Weir All in our defence and he fell confident that every citizen of our the people s Man to the presidency you will enjoy the fruits of United labors alien i shall have ceased to take a part with you for my thin and whitened locks Tell me that 1 shall soon sleep with my fathers. The old Soldier s Story. A few Days since i stopped at a Public House in Colrain and while my ii orse was eating 1 sat Down in the bar room and heard a Sensi Lle old Man relate the substance of the enclosed account. During the revolutionary War there was a Point of land on the Jersey Side of the Hudson and not far Distant from new York which was the science of a bloody conflict. There were about three Hui dred acres next to the River from which the Wood and Timber had been cleared off Back of this was a heavy Forest. On this cleared Point a Large number of cattle destined to Supply the american army were placed. Four or five Miles Distant in new Jersey there were three thousand Light infantry under the command of Lafayette. I was one of that Deta climent. Of business was to see that the cattle were not taken from the Point by the enemy. One morning intelligence was brought into Camp that several vessels had a House of commons in Ibe Early part of Bis cart or of the glorious War which preceded the disastrous on it in we lost the colonies called it the last War he took no notice and so ii after repeating the mistake he was interrupted by a general cry of quot the last War it one a the last War but one quot "1 mean sir quot said or. Pitt turning to the speaker and raising his sonorous voice i mean sir the War that britons would wish to re Tieniber quot i Hereupon the cry was instantaneously changed into an Universal cheer Long and original. Country would concur in giving Triem an ample compensation he would say a Liberal one. He to d that the military committee would give the subject a careful investigation and report the facts to the Senate and he Felt confident that the Senate and the country would do this valuable class of men ample Justice and that he knew the officers would be Content n Ith a just Reward for their valuable services. These sir Are briefly the reasons which have induced me to offer the resolutions and i Hope they May be adopted. Thu test Monyon a Veteran in favor of Gen. is very generally known Liui ral Marston g. Clark selected the Camp ground at Tippecanoe and that he was an efficient officer in the Battle. Gen. Clark was unanimously chosen president of Ihu a state convention in Indiana which nominated Gen.
