Logansport Canal Telegraph (Newspaper) - May 28, 1836, Logansport, Indiana I by s. Lasselle amp j. B. Dillon. Vol. 2 i mime my Ujj Jug sport Indiana saturday May 18g0. No. 46. Indiana. Extract of a letter to the editors of the to sport Telegraph dated Michigan City la. May 10th, 1836.5 the Northern part of this state is progressing in improvements far beyond All precedent in the annals of civilization. In every part of the country villages Are springing into existence some of which Are destined to become important commercial Points and in a few years to hold a fair comparison with the older cities of the East Over which in some respects they must possess the very important advantage of being surrounded by land of the most produs Jive kind and As a wheat soil not surpassed by any in the world. The question which arises then is which of the Many Points Desipin Atco Are to become the most important to answer this question quot let the enquirer take the map of this country and the answer is at hand. Tic Mouth of st. Joseph s River possesses pro of ably More natural advantages than any other Point on the Lake except lii ago and will assuredly be a place of importance. No it a Bui Tilo surrounded As it is i y a Rich and it ii it soil. Will al of Ere Many Yvars take a rank of no mean character Amr no the cities of to c West. But messes. Eci tors triese places arc not in our own state and Indiana with l us a Small strip of territory reach Ian the Lake a a As not of Many Points or outlets but Liose which she has Are in Coni Quence of this c rendered tiie men Init Octant to her and Nuisl receive Iron her a Jat Aid and Protection which a kind Parent is always disposed to extend to a promising child lick Point at present is Michigan City her Poi it Liat is to be is Liverpool at the Moul a of deep River at which place the canal to the Lake must terminate place and at which place All the improve cols from the Maumee to the Mississippi Are compelled to Cross. Deep River is a very handsome Stream and is navigable any time during the season its depth of is never less than ten or fifteen feet to i Ake Michigan and at i s Mouth is an extensive Harbor which can be so improved at a Small expenditure As to make it inferior to none on Lake for Wirich an appropriation will a a it cd during the next Winter and which must surely be allowed. Liverpool is situated two and a half Miles from the Lake on tic River and on the first Point of Good land Ai tiie Lake. Thu country surrounding it is of the most Fertile kind being Prairie and Woodland of the Best description. On the River above the town Are several valuable Mill privileges v. Hich Are being improved and so soon As the land is i brought into Market will be completed. At this Point the roads leading from East to West must Cross deep River and the Survey of the Riad from Toledo to Rock Island in the ?.iis-Sissippi, crosses at Liis place. This Road i Ain informed is a favorite measure with the administration and will no doubt be prose Fulcd to completion. Liverpool will be of cred to the Public during the ensuing summer. 1 live no interest in Liverpool a visit to the place a Tew weeks since having elicited the foregoing remarks the Bible. This is tie ladder whereby men May dim to heaven. And yet we need not ransack else indies to enrich ourselves with it nor venture Shipwreck to bring it Home. We need not sell lands and houses to Purchase it nor run the Hazard quot of sword and fire to secure it. It is a thing always to be had always . Call Ever at hand and portable non re it. N in a journey no Load in a voyage. We Nily Sions i taste of the Rivers that make glad the cod a the soul that can Wing her Way above the Clouds and Survey the crowns and sceptre Laid up for those who dare despise the world and have their conversation in heaven while the body is in anguish and when the fierce winds of worldly tribulation rage around her can rejoice in him who is her All in All. Temporal Joys. It is with our worldly comforts As it was with the original pleasures of Paradise some Are for food and some Are for trial. God has thought lit therefore to limit the use of these terrestrial Felicitits and to signify in his word that his intent in giving them is that they shall be our servants not our masters advantages to us and not hindrances in admiring and a doring the immense goodness and Bounty of our father who is in heaven. Beaut of holiness. There is such loveliness in the Way of god notwithstanding some discouragements in approaching it that whoever is tempted once to Wijt the veil and see what is behind it to remove the sackcloth and ashes and see what is beneath to open the Iron Gate and View the Golden treasures that Are within to unlock the Cabinet and see the jewels Tiu re he would beyond a doubt be a visited at the sight and nor stay an hour longer in the Chambers of death. The love of Chin is. It pass eth knowledge. It mocks All Effort at description. We cannot re chit with our colors but like tim Anthes when unable to depict the countenance of iphigenia s father he Drew a veil Over it we shrink from an Effort that must be ineffectual it is a love that has no Type on Earth. We see it glittering on the mount of god and it leaves us in the Vale below gazing atias a thing to which mortality can show no resemblance. . It is with consideration As it is with microscopes and magnifying that looked but a faint red before through Liis Glass appears All Scarlet. God s Laws which were before regarded As Mere human injunctions through this Glass appear so Beautiful so rational of ise so wonderful so suited to an a polite robber. We often read of extremely polite and gentlemanly highwaymen who Rob with such marvellous Courtesy that a Man can hardly go when it Siomo or i carry it wherever we abroad and even in the stillness of night we May Tweti upon it in holy contemplation As did the ancient patriarch in his dream of Angels ascending and sacred i Rophet Speaks to us like an orator another like a logician. One endeavours by a eloquence to Charm us and another by his a ear g to convince our minds. One thre items and another promises. Here we have presented to our eyes a sceptre of divine love and there our cars arrested by the shrill voice of the warning trumpet. We now hear a voice from Ebal. And now a voice from . One Gierald of salvation Points up to the smoke of the torment that Ascer Ideth up for Ever and Ever and another with the tender acce its of a Saviour s love cries out quot turn be turn be Why will you die quot the bi3le prec Ous. Some men Negl it the Hille As others neglect a valuable picture. It is thrown by and tried As dust of tiie Rul i ish. Lint when care fully tia irined it will prove to be a cos by original done by a Superior ii and a greater than Rubens Raphael or Michael Angelo. While neglected and sullied it seemed worthless it appears now of extraordinary its curious lines appear the strokes of a great matter s hand Are seen More and More admirable lineaments Are discovered and the Soulis last enamoured at the contemplation. The soul. The atheist laughs at the immortality of the soul the soul that can build her nest among i stats of heaven walk through yonder Man intelligent nature that with David we Are compelled to cry out o How i love thy Law it is my meditation All the Day. The exodus of Israel. Ire Aveh bowed to the ancient people of the lord and under its Protection they went As under a canopy of state and they might with greater reason than the Sultan Challenge that lofty title the Shadow of god or with the persian emperors have styled themselves Kinsmen of the stars. Their eyes saw miracles almost every Day and with their daily bread they received daily prodigies. Life a fun agent. Men generally live the reverse of god s designs and intentions and instead of using their visible blessings in order to secure a greater end the make that their Home which was intended Only for their iun and Are for erecting tabernacles to dwell there which god designed Only As a thoroughfare. Worldly treasures. They often make to themselves wings and ily off and there was great Point in the observation made by the lacedaemonian in Plutarch when he heard Lampes commended for his valuable shipping i am afraid of Felicity which depends so much or cords and threads. Treasures in heaven and none other Are infallible. Conscience. Judas droops though his purse is full of Money and Cain though he is master of a spacious territory is almost driven to despair. Common Orr Veteran commanded the Pioneer of our glory is on furlough making a tour in the Mediterranean with his family. At Malta where he arrived in february last a few Days after his proud ship quot old Ironside quot had touched there he was treated by tiie British officer in the Fleet and Garrison among Wlinich by a single Cionci device was capt. Dacres in command of a 74�?with a degree of Courtesy and ceremony from the Admiral downwards which a. Royal Erson might have envied. Dacres called on Liim almost every Day and showed him about As a lion. This was magnanimous and worthy Ofa British heart and Gallant officer. Small Secretary of the Treasury has issued a circular to the quot Coll Clors receivers amp a. Of tiie Public monies prohibiting Payin nut of notes of a less denomination that ten dollars. Tie Deposit Banks have been ordered not to Issue notes after the 4lhof july of a. Less Deno Niin Ilion Ive and not less than ten after the 3d of March 1837. Herald. The civil War in Spain seems to have called Forth the most Savage and diabolical passions. It is stated by a writer who says he was an Eye witness that a prisoner was murdered by the Queen s party cooked and eaten and that All classes the educated and the ignorant men and women participated in the horrible feast. Ages will not suffice to wipe off so foul a stain from the character of that miserable county. Feel it in his heart to withhold his watch his purse or aught of goods and chattels that he May Chance to have about him. But it is quite otherwise with your sea Rol Bere alias pirates who Are represented As a most brutal unfeeling set who have not the least dash of politeness about them to redeem their characters from unmitigated odium. Such being their general reputation is with no slight feeling of Relief that we read the account of so polished and courteous a villain As the one described below. It is extracted from the quot adventures of a he had shipped at new Orleans on Board the governor Griswold bound to Havana and Liverpool As Steward. We got says he under Way and proceeded Down the River until we came to a place called the English turn when the boat Man Ned by twelve or fourteen men came off from the Shore and when they had arrived within Hail they called to us and asked if we wanted a Pilot. no quot whereupon theman inthe Stern of the boat ordered one of the men to throw him a rope. The rope was handed him and it being made fast to the boat he came alongside. He ascended the ladder Asid came on Board with All his men excepting four who remained in the boat. The Captain of the desperadoes was a to Man dark complexion red and terrible aspect. His eyes were Black and piercing his nose slightly roman and he wore a huge pair of Sable must chios. His men were a ferocious looking band Hardy and Sun Burnt. He saluted the Captain in a courteous manner and was profuse in compliments. His men who wore a Long red Indian a Locking red Ca its and were armed with pistols and knives sauntered carelessly about the deck our Captain then Cut Short the interrogation of tiie pirate by saying "1 know your the pirate then turned to our Crew and asked them what sort of usage they had received since they left Europe. Quot tolerable quot they replied quot but very Little the pirate then called for the Steward. 1 made my appearance. Quot have you plenty of grog on boards quot inquir<2d he. 1 replied in the air native. Quot fill up that bucket quot said he quot and Cany it Down the forecastle for the men to i took up the bucket at which he pointed carried it into the Cabin and filled it with liquor. I then took it Forward to the forecastle where the men received it and conveyed it below. As soon As the Crew had got Belov and were assembled round the bucket the pirate placed two of his men upon the scuttle to prevent any of the Crew from coming on deck while he with two of Liis gang stuck close to the Ca Tain and mate. Quot vow Steward quot said the pirate quot go Down and invite All your passengers to come on deck. 1 did As i was ordered. Our passengers were a lady and two Small children and a gentleman who had been engaged in teaching a school in new Orleans but having received a letter purporting that the death of a near relation had Eft i to a Large Fortune had embarked for his Home Wlinich was London. These persons came on deck. The Jady was much frightened but the pirate told her to he under no apprehension and soothed i r with language Wlinich would not have disgraced the court of great Britain. The pirate now gave orders to bring up the gentleman s trunk. The trunk was Laid at his feet quot now said he bring u the Captain and mate s property quot they also were produced. He then proceeded to Vair Hiil the Captain s trunk which contained quot no great quot Captain you have a very poor kit quot said he with a scornful smile. The pirate then examined the passenger s trunk. It contained about four Hundred and forty dollars in specie. In rummaging the trunk the pirate fell in with the letter containing the information in respect to the Fortune which had been left the passenger. This letter the pirates read and giving a significant Givance at the fortunate Man whose direction it bore folded it up carefully and Laid it Down he then turned to the Captain and asked him if the Man had paid his passage. Quot no quot answered the Captain. Quot How much does his passage Cost quot inquired the pirate. Quot two Hundred and Twenty dollars quot replied the Captain. Quot that you must lose quot said the pirate. Alien turned to the passenger quot you quot said he "1 will treat fairly you will want quot continued the pirate quot when you arrive in Liverpool two dollars to pay the Porter for carrying your trunk quot he Laid Down the Money quot your passage to London will Cost you �2 10" he counted it out and placed it with the two dollars quot your dinner will come to five shillings and you May want �2 More to treat some friends quot he Laid Down the Money with the rest quot and for fear that will not he sufficient Here Are Twenty five dollars More. Lie presented the amount of these several items to the Pas Senger gave the remainder to one of his gang and told him to pass it into the boat. He then very courteously asked the time of Day. The quot attain pulled out a Fine watch and answered that it was half past three. Quot your Walch takes my fancy mightily quot said the pirate and taking it from the Captain he put it into his Fob with great nonchalance and walked away to the forecastle. Quot come up Here two of you who Are sober said he. Two of them stumbled up and the rest come reeling after. Quot go Down into the Cabin and bring me tip All the Small arms you can find quot said the pirate. The two first sailors went Down and soon returned with an old fowling piece and a pair of pistols. Quot no said , turning to the sailors quot if any of you boys wish to change your situation for better pay and a Shorter passage i will give you a Chance for rent i am after and rent i la have but Stop a quot cried he quot this lady i had almost forgotten come Here Madam and let me hear a Little of your worldly she immediately commenced an eloquent Harangue accompanied with tears. She had gone on for some time in this manner when the pirate immediately cried quot avast avast there that s enough i d sooner face the Battery of a ninety eight than Stem the torrent of female eloquence quot he then ordered some Brandy for himself and his men. The liquor was brought i poured out a Glass Jill for him when he said quot Stop Captain just he so Good As to drink this Oil yourself after of is manners. I Don t know what you Yan Kee inventors May have put into this liquor. You May have thrown an Onyx in the cup. The Captain drank it off readily. The pirate eyed the Captain closely for a few moments and then said to his followers come my boys we May venture quot and the decanter was soon drained of its contents. The pirate then pointed to the Mai top and requested the Captain to take a walk up that Way. Quot and you my mate quot said he quot begin to travel up the fore rigging. But mind quot said he quot Stop when i Tell you quot the Captain and mate had proceeded half Way up the lower l digging when he summoned them to halt. The Captain was about stepping upon the next rattling when the pirate again hailed him quot if you stir an Inch backward or Forward quot said he quot you will come Down faster than you went the Captain looked Down and saw several pistols levelled at him ready to be discharged on the instant. He then remained stationary. Then the pirate taking off his Cap addressed the passengers. He told them he was once poor himself and therefore knew How to sympathise with persons in distress. He hoped they a Ould be grateful for the Lenity which he had shown them and then wishing then a pleasant voyage he stepped Over the Side into his boat and was soon lost to our View the foliage of the thick Underwood which lined the Shore and Hung Over the Green wave.
