Sangamo Journal (Newspaper) - June 4, 1841, Springfield, IllinoisThe journal National Bane. Public opinion is settling Down in favor of the policy of a National Bank. This a mors rape scially the Case in the Southern states where opposition to this measure was anticipated. Indeed in our own Community men who were once hostile to such an institution now adroit that there is no other Means left to secure for the people of the United slates a uniform currency the National Bank party in this state Hae Ever been stronger than the whig party and we i pose the same slate of things exists in other states. The Richmond Virginia whig Speaks of great change in the Public mind in that state a Vihti subject of a National Bank. The whig a a. Change Hove been surprised at the extent of t favor of a Taa oration of n Bank of the the distribution Bill. The annexed communication was referred to n our last paper As furnishing a conclusive reply o the objections of the state Register against he passage of the distribution Bill. It was written by a Van Buren Man Bat on that Lecoum is not the less Welcome to our columns. Our state is in a condition which All her citizens should feel and deplore while at the same time they should be ready to adopt any constitutional and practicable Means to save her credit and protect her Honor. To accomplish these object Are willing to go hand in hand with any portion of our citizens whether they be Harrison men 01 Van Buren men whig or we have been anxious to learn from the re Gistjr its plan for sustaining the interests of the state but on these questions it is entirely silent.

There con we thin be no question of the fact that regulations in relation to our Trade with foreign countries have prostrated the agricultural interests of this country. Especially has this has been the to Silt of the Corn Laws of England and France As Well As their Laws by which our wools and other products arc excluded from those countries.

It i it Clear Noonday that the project to carry on new canal contracts by paying contractors with Bonds at Par for the work while those Bonds Are More than 50 per cent under part must have for its object either Tho swindling of the state or of individuals. If the estimates Are properly made no Man on Earth can take contracts with the certain loss of More than fifty per cent and probably much greater and do an honest business. The thing is absurd. And we debt whether any honest Man would engage in the work.sangamo journal. A a Short time since we noticed the course pursued by the Sangamon journal in regard to the canal and As charge that in a weak contrivance of the enemy it a rumoured in town that or. Barrett a has announced himself As a candidate for Congress in opposition to or. state Register. We suppose this is about the last contrivance of the Loco Foco Junto of Springfield to get up schism in the whig party. But Thoy mistake their Man. Or. Barrett is a whig every Inch a whig a devoted to the Success of the whig party and Hig principles a and however much he might be ambitious of a Seal in Congress he knows that to candidate at the present time could not fail of endangering the Success of whig Ascendancy in this District both now and hereafter As Well As jeopardise the cause of the whigs in the stale.

We find in a late English paper the following description of the Island of Hong Kong situated the Entrance of the Large Bay near the Mouth of Canton River. It will be recollected that this Island has been ceded to the English by the Chi. In government. A the Island of Hong Kong now granted by China to the Queen of England is one of the Groupe of islands at the Mouth of Canton River. It is of granitic formation and the ground rises to some considerable height in the Centre of the Island. There Aro several Good watering places on the Southern shores and potatoes and vegetables Are cultivated by the inhabitants to a great extent. The Anchorage is beat Between the lamps islands and Hong Kong As there a from 10 to 12 fathoms of water. There is also Good Anchorage in Tatam Bay for Small vessels but the Entrance is not Good and there Are Somo dangerous Roe a in the course. This Island is badly chosen As a position it is surrounded by Small clusters of islands and our ships of War will be unable the act amid these Island group.

An English Gardner says that spirits of usual cautious policy As they will be enabled by turpentine sprinkled around the vines will drive the River Junks to Block up the entrances and Cut off communication from the outer Waters.

The following is from one of his late papers april 16 Quot it is particularly the duty of our representative in Congress from this District to urge Tho importance of the canal its National character and its great advantages upon the consideration of that body. Of course the other representatives of the state would Aid with their Best efforts but it must be remembered that the Active exertions of the remaining members of the lower House Are required by their Conet Tuente in urging do nations for the Cumberland Road a amp a.

He doubtless is one of those Asut geniuses who can a splits hair a twixt North and North West Side a but still Plain common sense cannot avoid exclaiming when the two measures Are placed Side by Side. Easily an j would to lost on them. The same j but i said above that a much larger amount of that avowed by Gen. Jackson that a the Pat j Revenue can be raised in this Way than Byan Yoth Ron age of the government should not he brought or form of taxation. If this proposition needs any inflict with the Freedom of elections.j support by argument it is sufficient to Referio to Lings apply this doctrine to the officers of amount of Revenue which the general govern the. Ment derives from duties. In some years it a into the government As veil in the territories 1 states. Indeed the interference of government mounts to two dollars for every Man woman and officers in elections in territories is it possible a child in the Union. The population of Illinois is now nearly half. It of. In.

It is reasonable to suppose that we con Tbs .ituti011 having been read by Rowan he exc Tusie sources of patronage in the territories sume in this state As great a proportion of for he procedure As a violation of private than in Tho states.

Indeed we know nothing of it which we do not find in Reynold speech but he admits enough to show As we unde stand hint that it contains facts a it Ftp i Ealing is character and Honor a we Here see proportion which our population bears to that of patronage the enormous patronage of the Federal j the whole Union for the consumption of such government in the territories. It is Well under j goods depends very much upon the general pros stood that the territorial officers have nol failed j parity of the people and no slate in general to use their patronage for the Benefit of the party. It Prosperity is ahead of Illinois. At this rate then for these reasons the application of the Jeffer we actually pay nearly a million of dollars into Sonsin principle of removal has been applied to j the general Treasury As our proportion of the tax. Them. Is the Register answered and when it is remembered that a tax of $100,000 the St. Lou made by or. Barrett to raise the january interest has been extended to october next. If so the state has $50,000 which can be applied to Tbs Reaa a Why lie denounces this use of Bis Cor w it it or interest which will accrue in july.

At the last dates from new Rork Illinois state Bonds were Selling at 56�?an Advance of 7 per cent within a few weeks.

Poure of their villainy before our intelligent and betrayed and suffering citizens. Whatever we May wish in regard to Rowan one thing is certain that he cannot do himself More Honor or his fellow citizens a greater favor than in bringing out the a a secrets of the prison House a tearing the veil from Alrec transactions which have sunk our state into embarrassment and her citizens into despondency. John Reynolds has been one of the efficient agents in this disgraceful business. 07�?�we Are sorry senator Ralston or senator Pearson cannot be persuaded to enter the Field As candidate for Congress. We repeat that the people of this District would like the privilege of pasting upon their acts during the Jas go Estop of the 1 a rencontre in St. Louis on thursday of last week which grew out of some dispute respecting the Possession of Duncan a Island e. A Langhans shot James Adams through the head. Adams was living at the last dates but was not Likely to survive. A court of examination admitted Lang am to bail in the sum of $5,000. The Detroit free press says that the Bank of Michigan will go into liquidation. This was one of the Many pet Banks of the late administration and such was the extent of its Loans to the leaders of the party without Security that fail ire was the result. Late Philadelphia papers state that the Bank f the United states has accepted the Relief Law of Pennsylvania and that she has made assignments to secure tire holders of her obligations. One would venture to say that any thing like an equal amount of Revenue Ean be raised by direct taxation As can be indirectly by collecting a duty on foreign goods. And now when it is thus apparent that indirectly paying such an enormous amount to the general government does it not form a Strong plea and give us a just claim for any thing that government can give in return consistently with the written charter under which it acts when the states have thus abandoned this most valuable source of Revenue surely nothing Short of the most vital objections ought to prevent a distribution of Tho Public land proceeds which would in some Small degree return to the states a portion of what they have so freely granted. Do such objections exist i did nol intend or. Editor to write a Long article but while my pen is in my hand i feel inclined to say a few things More. I wish to say a few words to my worthy Friend and fellow Democrat the editor of the Register As he has advanced some ideas on this subject which i think should be corrected and As one of the family perhaps it would be As Well fur me As for any other person to administer the correction. The editor of the Register from his official standing May doubtless be considered the r non Cut of the True democratic doctrines. His last argument is that a by far the greater portion of the Money derived from the sales of the Public lands which would be wholly raised from the new slates and territories would be carried to the East for distribution consequently it would impoverish the West by draining from it annually millions of Money to be expended in enriching and building up the to this i reply it is untrue that the Money paid for the Public lands Quot is wholly raised from the new states and territories a a very inconsiderable portion is raised in these states and territories. The Public lands Are entered and paid for by emigrants from All parts of the world but chiefly from the Eastern and older Southern states. They bring their Money from the East to pay for the lands they enter and if the Money should immediately return East we would be no poorer. And in the Case of a Man who has settled on government land before it came into Market his labor furnishes the Money with which he pays for his farm and therefore in this Case the state no poorer if the Money should go East because the avails of his labor Are so much additional be added to the wealth previously existing in state if he had not come into the state that additional wealth would not have been created. When he pays it for his ineptly changing the form of his property. It a evident that he is belter satisfied to pay the Money let it go where it will and retain the farm than to keep the Money and give up the farm and if he is satisfied and benefited who is injured or impoverished Vious to every plainly no one and the state is benefited Inthav ing an additional inhabitant to till the soil and create new wealth by his labor and thus multiply the conveniences and enjoyments of life. Further the idea of impoverishing the new states by taking the land Money East for Dis Tribu a Tion May be answered by past experience. Under the existing system the Money goes to the general government. It could not go farther from the new states under Tho distribution policy and As the new states have flourished exceedingly under the existing system we have no Warran for concluding that a different effect would be produced by the same Causa under the proposed plan. Theories must Bow to facts especially Hen those facts have existed through Many years and All tending the same Way. In concluding these remarks i would Only say Isa thousand pities that a question which concerns the interests of Illinois to closely cannot be considered calmly on its merits and without refer once to past party action on the subject. It Seldom that a state in time of peace requires the vigorous and harmonious action of All her children More urgently than our own state now does under her present embarrassments and difficulties. A. B. Consideration of Wisdom and policy the Reco Mhead it which every candid Man will acknowledge. The journal apprehends however that Ike con improvements tractors cannot do an a honest business if they take the Bonds at Par and the work at proper estimates. How is this the contractors can now procure labor at $10 per month when our Bonds sold at Par in Europe they paid $20�?now they can Purchase a barrel of flour for $4, then they paid $10, and the sane ratio for potatoes Bacourt Corn. See. Does the state Treasury or do the banners and workingmen suffer at this rate tire latter most unquestionably As they always do under similar circumstances. But How can it be remedied if we suspend the canal until our Bonds bring Par then Lamorand produce will command much higher prices and consequently the state or the contractors will receive no advantage by the suspension of the work but the truth is the state will suffer As the capital invested i Maine i a Connecticut i i Pennsylvania 2 new York 1 Ohio 2 Georgia 1 Louisiana 1 Mississippi i Tennessee i eleven Loco focus representing whig state to one whig from South Carolina Maryland election.

Pro Schimon for opinions . K. Fell clerk of the circuit court of de Witt county has been removed by judge treat. Fit on tuesday at 1 of clock the Mercury stood 1 in this City f rent Cit at 96� in the Shade. Quotation made from our paper shows that it had reference entirely to the project of letting Quot new contracts Quot for which payment was to be made in state Bonds at Par. The Freo trader applies these remarks to the old contracts which Are not within the control of the state and which can be carried on if the contractors choose to do so a and receive pay on their contracts in Bonds at Par. We Are perfectly writing that they should soon and while they perform their contras is they have a right to demand of the state the fulfilment of hers. On this Point we have no objections to offer. Regarding the statement of the free trader of the prices of labor and provisions As Correct we see no reason Why the old contractors cannot go on with their contracts and secure to themselves the same profits As they did when the prices of labor were 100 per cent higher than at this time. The remarks quoted by Tho free trader were directed As we have already stated exclusively to the Point that a project had been avowed of putting a Large additional amount of the canal under contract the contractors for which were to receive payment for the work in state Bonds at Par. We take the statement of Tho free trader in regard to the prices of provisions and labor on the canal As Tho ground for a few remarks. We learn in that statement that the main articles employed in a trying on operations on the canal Are at half the Price they were when the est males for the completion of the canal were made. Now it Oeners to us that As hese old estimates were mainly based upon the Cost of provision and labor at the time they wore made a if Correct estimates were now made upon the Cost of that portion of the canal not Nandor contract the former estimates would be reduced one half a that in if that portion of the canal not under contract was formerly estimated at two millions of dollars just estimate at this time would reduce that mount to one million of de friars. Again if this portion of the canal should be let to contractors Ith the understanding that they were to receive Bonds at Par on the old estimates it must be of that the state would lose by this operation one million of dollars. We think this position must be Clear to the weakest Inte Lect. And again a if the estimates Are now made on the basis furnished by the free trader it must be equally obvious that Tho contractors cannot take Bonds at Par and carry a a honestly with them. We presume the free trader will not pretend that the contractors Are a the practice of Clearing fifty per cent on thei contracts. If they de not under this proposition they cannot sustain themselves. Should they make such contracts it will be apparent to All that they must either be great losers themselves or that the labourers those who furnish provisions or the state must be the sufferers. To an operation of this character we applied the term the free trader repeats that we Are opposed to the canal. We Are opposed to the project we have Here condemned. It would drive All the disinterested friends of the canal from its support indeed we shall be gladly surprised if it is not hereafter found that the conduct of the free trader and its coadjutor has already lessened the strength of that work with the people and their representatives. Orthe Chicago Democrat has been begging the Loco Foco Junto Here to permit Thos. Camp sell of Joe Davie to run for Congress. The Jun. To have had the matter under consideration but refuse the leave asked. The subject of a convention was also brought before them and their decision was against a convention a a was it would greatly reduce their vote and discourage them in future the conclusion finally arrived at was to continue their efforts to Divide the whig party and if successful to slip into Congress by a sly movement our Friend Murray Mcconnell. If that project should fail to suffer the election to go by default. We give these As the reasons Why tues. Camf Bell can to be permitted to run. A the Loco Foco Guillotine hat pretty nearly ceased its operations in Springfield for want of victims. Or. Morse the faithful and competent clerk in the office of Secretary of stale has been discharged. Or Moore in the treasurers office. Is now the Only whig employed in the Public offices. Of the Mcleod Case had been argued but not decided at the last dates from new York. Thi judges of the court before whom this Case has been tried Are All Van Buren men of Tho strictest sect. We state this fact that the Reader May be Able to give the proper credit to the clamor of the Loco Foco press on this subject. Whatever decision there is in the Case will be Given by Loco foe judges a fact which the party press has or tirely kept out of tight.

The Chicago american of the 24th says a Noons can travel along Tho Lino of this magnificent work even in its present almost desolation without regretting anew its pro sear untoward circumstances. But Confidence and Hope it appears have not yet deserted the people though the labourers have the canal. A few of the contractors having their jobs nearly finished Are going on to Complete them As with their Supply of provisions and materials they can do it with le89 expense new than to resume the work at some future time. And it makes net much diff Ference by hither the state increases its debt a Little or Dot. The Basin at Ottawa has just been let to an Irish contractor who immediately commenced upon it. Some of the citizens of Ott Waare of opinion that the contractors will go on to completo their jobs Between Ottawa and pern and As far up As Marseille and that the Twenty two Miles now Inlet will soon be put under contract. This opinion shows certainly rather a sanguine state of feeling. Or. Morris president of the canal Board West at Ottawa Tho Middle of last week and we understand that lie and or. Cloud Are to join Gen. Fri at Lockport to Day. We May therefore learn something about the course of the new commissioners in a few Days. Heretofore it has Alt been speculation and uncertainty. If the canal in the language of or. Morris a must go on at All Hazzards a the people Aro certainly justified in wishing to know How and when and we Trust they will soon be enlightened on these Points.
