We will Endeavor to pah Lush it in oar next. In the Hooke we do not observe that any thing of importance has been done. The Southern whig bullies Are endear it Oring to quarrel with some one who will not fight but they caught a tartar in the person of or. Bynum. It is absolutely necessary to Cool off these Fellows once in a while. We give a Short sketch of the Are up a we promised or. Stanly Here arose and put an interrogatory to or. By Nam to which he wished a reply but was not distinctly heard by the reporter. Or. Bynum said that the member bad asked for a civil answer to a question which he said he had put in a civil Way. If the member was in Earnest and could be relied on he had no objection to answering any civil question put to him in a proper spirit. Or. Stanly was understood to ask of the gentlemen from North Carolina or. By nah if he word bully Quot or Quot political Champion Quot was intended by him in an offensive sense 1 whether he intended it to have a literal or political construction or. Bynum said he did not know that he could make any other explanation to the question than he had Given. He had said that he had used the word Quot a a in Quot in the Sene he had explained before which was one who was in the habit of thrusting himself in every occasion in debate and endeavouring to browbeat and bully others out of their opinions and if that was not Satin factory the member might act As he chose in relation to it As be had no further explanation to make. Or. So anly was then understood to proceed As though unsatisfied. The speaker Here interposed to put a Stop to the discussion which he said was of such a nature As could not be permitted to go on and that the gentleman from Maryland or. Jenifer had merely risen As he understood him to make some correction of a matter which personally interested him. Or. Stanly was again understood to say that reference had been made to Hirn by his colleague or. Bynum in his reply to the gentleman from Maryland which he conceived needed some notice. He said it was usual with him to cultivate with gentlemen the most Friendly relations and particularly so with persons from the state which he in part represented that he Felt his heart warmed to meet any such but on his arrival Here he had cautioned his friends and colleagues not to introduce him to his colleague or. Beni m for if they did he would hold them personally responsible. He made some further remarks not heard sufficiently distinct to be understood. Or. Bynum said that this place was not the prop if the member would but go to the Rotunda he would satisfy him. To which or. S. Made no reply but said something As he sat Down about or. B. Begging his life which was not understood. Or. B. Then Rose and said Quot when and where Puppy Puppy Puppy 1&Quot and the matter Here closed. The Van Buren leaders think the people of Indiana should place them in Power in this state in order to economize and reduce the expenditures of the state government. Vill the citizens of Indiana believe a word of it 1 look at their conduct in conducting affairs at Washington. In 1828, the expenditures under John a. Adams were less than thirteen millions. Under Martin Van Buren in 1838, without any Public debt it was upwards of thirty millions that is the Noble patriots reduced it up to the tune of seventeen millions. After such an exhibition of Economy who can refuse to place the federalists democrats in charge of our local affairs 1 such financiers deserve a leather medal for their new doctrines on Economy 1�?courier. We pronounce the assertion that the expenses of the government under or. Van Buren in 18.38, was upwards of thirty millions untrue. We Call upon them for the proof. But admitting it True and As they would try to a Bly but have not yet finally disposed of it. Most of Friday was occupied in debate upon a report from the judiciary committee in relation to the repeal of so much of the Revenue Law As provides that term personal property shall be construed to mean and include All improvements made on government lands the report was that the above provision shall not be repealed and after a length debate it was concurred in by a vote of 34 to 10. Considerable business was transacted on saturday. In the afternoon the joint Resolution of or. Ewing of a., for the sending of a commissioner to Ohio for More Slancie refuted. We Are Forry to see the Dottore of the courier Falk ing Hack into their habit again. We bad hoped that the experience of the last season had tag them a lesson not to be forgotten. We do Hope for their own Sake that their last paper is not a specimen of the course they intend to pursue hot that its contents were rather the result consequent upon the excitement naturally arising for Dpi their devoted labors in behalf of lord bigger we assure them that it is no source of pleasure to us to be obliged to inflict chastisement upon them every week but if its course should Render it necessary they know what to expect. Be that As it May however it is but a duty we owe to the Public to Correct several misrepresentations contained in their last. They have an article headed Quot quarrels in the Federal prefaced by some editorial remarks and purporting to be from a Van Buren paper. With the heading we find no fault and candidly believe that every Federal paper in the country should keep it As a standing motto. It would save the democrats some trouble. As to writer of the article it is Only necessary to say that his name is theron Rudd a disappointed office seeker and a perfect counterpart of the president of the late Federal whig convention excepting that his talents Are far inferior. But As this does not expose the falsity of the charge and that those who Are open to conviction May see the vile arts used to Blindfold them that they May be made the tools of demagogues we Odd the following correspondence. Those who Are not convinced after Reading it must be prejudiced indeed. We copy from the n. Y. Evening Post collector s office new York december 20, 1839. To the editor of the evening Post my attention has been called to the two following paragraphs in a morning paper of this City Quot we presume that it is pretty generally known that the present collector of the port of new York like Bis predecessor or. Swartwout and his late colleague or. Price is a defaulter to the general government and such will Ever be the Case As Long As such offices Are filled by men who Are responsible to those cliques Only and not to the people at Quot it is reported that the United states attorney of this District has been instructed by the Secretary of the Treasury to sue the collector for this amount and this is precisely what the people would naturally expect from such a Man As or. As to the first i pronounce it to be unqualified Day false so far As it relates to me and As to the second paragraph the annexed correspondence will speak for itself. J. Hoyt collector. Collector s office 2 new York december 20. 1839. \ sir a in one of the morning papers of this Date it is alleged that you have been instructed by the Secretary of the Treasury to bring a suit against me. As a defaulter. The object of this note is to ask whether this statement is True 1 very respectfully. Your Obed t. Servant j. Hoyt collector. To b. F. Butler esq., District attorney of the United slates for the Southern District of new York. United states District attorney s office new York dec. 20. 1839. Sir a in reply to your note of this Date i have to say that i have received no instructions from the Secretary of the Treasury or any other officer to bring any suit you for any cause whatever. Very respectfully. Your of t. Serv t. B. F. Butler u. S. Alt. To Jesse Hoyt collector of the port of n. York. Another Olive Branch a whig paper published at Rockville has since the nomination of or. Harrison turned a Complete Summerset. It has turned from the support of abolitionism in the person of or. Harrison and come out boldly in favor of or. Van Buren and an Independent Treasury.

Under the present Federal whig dynasty they amount to $97,441,39 being an increase in eight years in the Small state of Indiana of seventy thousand four Hundred and twelve dollars and ninety seven the democrats in Parke especially those without a cents pretty Fellows to preach about Economy we can with propriety quote their own language Quot after such an exhibition of Economy who can refuse to place the federalists in charge of oar local affairs the pm Proee of urging the completion of her part of the i Quot such Quot editors Quot deserve a leather medal for their Wab Asli and Erie canal Caniz up on its second read doctrines on ing and after being amended and discussed at Lengli wish it noticed that in the above statement was read a third time and passed. We have not dragged in other than the expenses of in the House on saturday the Bill for the Relief the slate government. The enormous waste of the of contractors was under consid Wilion. After be-1 a Quot Bic Money by the Federal whigs on their internal ing discussed the entire Day and being amended improvement Swem has not been included. We the vote was taken on its final passage and lost by a Large majority. In the Senate 10th, several local questions were disposed of. In the House the Bill for the Relief of contractors was taken up several amendments made and rejected and before taking the question the House adjourned. In the Senate Lluli considerable business was transacted which will be More particularly noticed in in final stage. In the House several petitions were presented and the Bill for the Relief of contractors was discuss red and amended and ordered to be engrossed by a a vote of do to 90. The rules of the House were suspended and the Bill read b Wrd time and after Sev a Rel area dents the my Ami on the passage of the bin was decided in the negative by a vote of 50 noes to 30 ayes. The Senate spent All of the 13th in committee of the whole upon the several Bills for the Relief of corp tractors. Various amendments were proposed to each of the Bills and one of them the scrip and Small Dou Bill of or. Ewing was stricken out. Two of the others the scrip and Treasury note Bills have been referred together with numerous instruct tips to a select committee consisting of messes. Granbo. Eluogu Ken adj Chamberlain Arion and Debaron. Yesterday the Bill for the Relief of contractors a Liili was passed a the House on monday came wish it distinctly understood also that we deny the assertion that the expenses of the general government Ever amounted under or. Van Buren to Over thirty millions of dollars. As the courier has made the assertion we demand the proof. Into the Senate was read a first and second times Jasi if crash to the Saliae Emmittee to whom was a Lee Lalioo for a modifying the Public works of Meas a. Angle Carans Armstrong f amt lava Thompsia Blair Ewing of Aken Fedj Catheart Aad Park. Tha co Arica for fear that the whips with All their Motiey would not be Able to hold As Large a meeting As us 4eaoerats, at Ladi Anapolis Sau oat with Tell Raff a amp a in Tom Rabia Ware. Wonder if they re collate Ika atau of tha travelling at the time the Quot Olav actions Quot were held i the Quot our paper of the 8th in commenting on a communication in reply to an advertisement of Quot Charles Pierce Quot we stated that we considered that or. P. Had been guilty of injustice. At that time it was our opinion that such was the fact. But As one Story is always Good till another is told Quot we have now altered that opinion. Or. P. Has shown us the most ample testimonials of his character such indeed As it does not become us to dispute. Still we must at least for the present adhere to our determination to exclude this controversy As it is not Only unprofitable to us but unjust to our subscribers who know nothing of the circumstances. It would have been much better if no one had taken the advertisement to themselves. These remarks we deem due to or. Pierce especially As he has left the testimonials before mentioned in our hands and As it is Likely that they will never appear in tie paper unless called out by Circuns stances Over which we have no control any one in doubt can be satisfied by calling and Reading them. We assure All. That it is not our intention to shut the paper against any communication designed for the Public Good but Only against these personal affairs in which the Public have no interest. Paper should encourage the Olive Branch by subscribing and paying for it in Advance and most assuredly if they All take hold old Parke alone can support a democratic press. Thus we now Harrison disorder. A since the Harrisburg nomination of or. Harrison for the presidency several of the prominent newspaper press supporters of federalism have Quot kicked the bucket Quot that is have Given up the ghost. Among others we May mention the Baltimore chronicle the Especial Oracle of the Terre haute Junto now bark Poulson s american daily advertiser and among the smaller Fry we notice the Cincinnati evening Post the Indiana Sun the Noblesville intelligencer &c., amp a. Quot coming events cast their shadows before Quot As the White girl in Indianapolis said when she married the Nigger. Caution have published within a few months the deaths of several persons old and Young resulting from their clothes taking fire. In addition to those which we have published say four we have now before is no less than thirteen Para it graphs detailing accidents of this description. We consider them of no further use than merely to give information to the friends of the deceased As the frequent warnings they convey seem not to be heeded in the least. The courier says that the president s message created but Little attention and no excitement and were Dull of Sale in new York. We notice this a it him Penna just to say that the new York son sold forty thousand copies besides the speculations of several whig papers which were not inconsiderable. A Resolution nominating Martin Van Baren for to presidency and John Forsyth for the vice presidency of the United states was adopted on the 11th inst. In the Senate of Georgia by a vote of 90 to 36.

Conceive possibie4n the Plain hoosiers of itt Diana. Three bands of music were put in requisition by the moneyed men of our state carriages drawn by six horses were on the Field and the trappings of Royalty so far As the aristocratic hoosiers of our state could put them in were plainly discernible. The whole show appeared to be got up As an exhibition to the world that the multitude could be deceived by Mere a is Gas. And i enquired earnestly enquired if Gen. Harrison be the Plain old Farmer he is represented to be Why All these unnecessary a Pend Ageal Why this drumming up for the last six week to procure a Large convention it is True the number of whigs attending the convention on yesterday exceeded that of the 8th, out of Indianapolis from fifty to one Hundred but the three bands of music some of whose members were Van Buren men paid for coming Here would be nearly equal to this excess. Tuft carriages music banners dec. Amp a. Were yesterday morning paraded on the streets and the grand show for More than two hours marched up and Down the town. Our whig merchants and Bankers had their wives and daughters stationed at their store doors and windows waving White and red handkerchiefs. It reminded every Plain Democrat present of a mimic representation of the Coronation of Queen Victoria on her ascending the throne of England. And yet Gen. Harrison is held up As the poor Man s candidate j and that poor old Gen. Harrison is now compelled with a salary of seven thousand dollars a year which he receives As clerk of Hamilton county to labor with Bis hands for Bis daily bread. That the poor old Man with an outfit to Panama under John Quincy Adams was so poverty stricken that he had to complain of ingratitude to his country. It is a pity with All the Money be has drawn from the government in the Way of office he should now be a beggar with seven thousand dollars a year salary. It is a pity messes. Editors that this log Cabin candidate As his friends Call him should have been so very poor that previous to the War he could Only afford to live in a Bouse at Vincennes costing from seven to twelve thousand dollars when or. Van Buren was toiling in honest poverty at Kinderhook for the Good name be now enjoys As president of the United states. Great complaint has been made of gov. Wallace for wishing to live in a House costing the state nine thousand dollars the ground on which it is located costing three thousands representing As he does and will for some nine months More a population of seven or eight Hundred thousand freemen and yet poor old Gen. Harrison previous to the War As governor of Indiana territory representing from 10,000 to 20,000 Plain old pioneers was compelled to put up with Worth Only from seven to twelve thousand dollars. That the poor old Man was compelled to put up with less than a score of Black and White House servants. That his cellar contained Only the meagre fare of Madeira wine and French Brandy. Poor poor old Man How ungrateful has been your country and now in his old age and in his poverty he is enlisting the charitable feelings of aristocratic merchants lawyer doctors fund commissioners judges of the courts engineers on our Public works amp cd cd. Who Are so very Char Itable that if they could thus Humbug the people All would be Well with them. After the procession of men was through and proceeded to business the carriages were occupied by some of the would be aristocratic ladies of the place. A somewhat celebrated whig of Indianapolis who was educated at government expense at West Point and who received a commission in the u. S. Army but who has been receiving $1,500 per annul for the last three or four years As a state officer appointed by David Burr the great whig defaulter of the state placed in the hands of his sister if i have been informed aright the sword which he wore As an officer of the United states army which she waved in Gallant style from one of the carriages. But what is the history of that sword 1 when our Gallant soldiers were spilling their blood in Florida some years since a son of the persecuted Amos Lane was the first to solicit permission to March to the tented Field. Many a son of Indiana recollects the burning ardor and great intellect of this Gallant youth. He too was a graduate of West Point. He marched to the Fields of Florida and there after gaining imperishable honors he fell a victim in his Early youth to the service of his you try. But the sword i have mentioned when its wearer was summoned to the same Field silently resigned his commission and through the intervention of powerful friends the War de it apartment received it and this Brave youth whose sword was waved so gallantly on the i6th, by an aristocratic sister was chosen by defaulter Burr to an office of state to the tune of $1,500 per year. Poor fellow How hard it would be for this Brave youth to lose i office. The convention As you will perceive by the news papers was organized by calling Samuel Judah esq., of Knox to the chair and ten vice presidents and several secretaries. Speeches were let off from whig lawyers doctors and judges in considerable number All complaining of the poverty of Gen. Har Rison and the ingratitude of the american a Poblic abounding with the grossest misrepresentation and abuse of or. Van Buren. Amongst these speakers or. Lane of Crawford Hue or. Fund commissioner Smith a. Judges a Faylor or. Samuel Barker or. Sex senator r. W. Thompson or. Would be any thing in the Way of office White of Madison or. Senator Cravens amp a. And a great number of the a Mailer Fry. Poor poor old general Harrison was the Barthen of the cry from these lordly Gentry. Now if Ever there was a farce got up in ridicule of honest poverty this was one. They not oily claimed the right of Gen. Harrison to the Fres Denoy a tha services of his father but they woah there a establish the precede of Early Vooght after by the aristocrats of oar land that the soap of tha Neft and powerful Shooltz have Peculiar provi Ieffa ii which identifies these Meo,.in to Weir present views maj foe it Ings directly with tha Ophi ions and action of Ander Hami Hony tto great founder of fad�rhi.iinrtft4-cratic princ Plaa air a Ajo United sutus if to democrats of Lidia a a gulled by Thasa itt Ariay shows 1 no Hii Xai loud resport front a offt democratic Beni Fri.

Amda by to hts Lhasa Paiml h no taste not he Fao Simia Imby Imi Sage of the system Bill of 1836, he related a Eilum stance that attended the passage of that most glorious measure. When the news reached Rushville his present residence a the members of to atomic to having voted for the Bill the wrote town was in an uproar. A Loco Foco who kept a tavern had been hired to hand out his liquors profusely to the populace. Judge bigger was lying at the time on a sick bed where he had been confined for several Days but so great was his enthusiasm that he got up and went where he says himself All present got most gloriously huddled on this most glorious occasion so much so that an honest Blacksmith As he related who belongs to the Temperance society and was never known to drink before or since got so gloriously drunk on the glorious internal improvement whiskey that on returning he be he endear. Ored to drive one of his neighbor s cows into his Blacksmith shop and shoe her by this floor is. I presume he wishes it to be understood that he goes far ahead of gov. Wallace who is now too much of a classifier to suit some of the rank system men in their internal improvement notions. Nut having voted for the Bill of 36, what Are called the anti internal improvement whigs think boy can Gull the people in this Way. In the internal improvement counties judge bigger is to Tell his Story of getting up out of a sick bed and getting drunk on Pale faced rot gut in Honor of the glorious system of 36, thereby carrying out the principle that deception is the motto of the whigs and that by deception alone can they Triumph. The drummed up forces of yesterday they think with their trappings carriages colors banners music &c., &c., will strike terror into the ranks of democracy a that the Plain assemblage of freemen which thronged the capital on the 8th of january is so far eclipsed that the people will be carried away by it. But they Are mistaken. The sober second thoughts of the people Are already at work. Dissensions and heart burnings Are in their ranks despite of their resolutions which will appear in their proceedings to conceal it. The people of Indiana cannot now be imposed upon. The whig convention has endorsed the charge made by the democrats that the system of internal improvement has been most wretchedly managed by laying gov. Wallace on the shelf. But who do the whigs want in his place a Why Forsooth a Man who got out of his sick bed to get drunk on the occasion of the passage of the Bill and who himself voted fur the Survey Bill while Wallace when elected governor found the system and its wretched management fastened on the country. His sober second thought induced him last Winter to propose classification and this is the Rock on which he foundered. The internal improvement men have discarded him and taken up a Man who although much deeper in the system can so manage they think As to carry water on both shoulders please both sides on the internal improvement questions who will retain the same men in office who have managed the system when he is elected and thus forever prostrate democracy in our state. A the cry of the Den crafts is Quot charge Chester charge on Stanley on Quot with general Howard for our commander the Good vessel Indiana will be soon overhauled and thoroughly repaired from Larboard Streak to Plank Shear. She will yet i Trust in god ride triumphant through every storm and tempest and soon be what in truth she ought now to be but for whig mismanagement Quot the Young giant of the i bad like to have forgotten to mention the Terre haute band. It was a Rich treat to me to hear the strains of Sweet music which it breathed Forth. It was a Rich treat to the people and does credit to your growing City. In this particular Terre haute bears off the Palm from any town of equal site in the West. Amongst such a people you must Prosper. Keep a stiff upper lips my hearties for i Hope to live to see the Day when this band will celebrate the glory of Indiana by playing governor Howard s on to Day the address and Reso Kitinos were read to the convention and Many of the speeches of yesterday and Day before repeated. The convention is now adjourned and the members Are dispersing. Personally i have no ill feelings to any of them. I go in for Indiana emphatically. But i go also to preserve the free institutions of my country. In Mari Ltd county the democrats Tell Roe that bigger is not so Strong by three Hundred votes As Wall Cen Wallace is the pet of Gen. Harrison. It was Harrison who procured for Wallace the appointment of Cadet at West Point and for the Sake of Harrison he is somewhat quieted. Bat to truth he is a ii tried Man As bigger is More objectionable than Watta Aci now at 2a Stock p. M. The whiffs Are Diersing.
