Terre Haute Wabash Enquirer (Newspaper) - June 3, 1840, Terre Haute, Indiana My the enquirer. "bc8urk Yod a Koht a the bal of Terre haute la. Wednesday. June 3, 1640. The or the monday last the silliest and most ridiculous farce which we Ever witnessed took place in this town. If the getters up of it were not heartily ashamed their looks did not do them Justice. It is it Roper however to say that two of the prominent characters on the occasion did a i tally seem to and no doubt did take pleasure for i although each no doubt considers himself a great personage the scene was suited to the calibres of their minds. But let us att Tnp to describe it to our return of the Quot Noble teas out Quot of sunday last. On Quot sunday Quot last the Harrison men of Vigo Quot i country readers. Early in the Day printed notices were stuck up about the town Callini upon the Harrison men to congregate at the River Side at 4 this returned Quot in strength Quot from Tippecanoe. Quot at an Early hour our fellow citizens Quot were aroused from their Elu Berb by the Roar of artillery and the beat o clock to lug a Long Quot dug out Quot up into town. Ing of Drums. Shortly after the Ete amere made a Rojice fell under our observation while undergoing their appearance having on Board the military and i Dixon s Deli it a Toul to sorial operations and delegates Quot accompanied in Many instances by was electrical. Had Webern on the verge their wives daughters and Little Quot of eternity our Cachin nation would not have been Babbitt s Fine infantry company was on lessened. It being then about the time appointed is working along slowly that important measure the Independent Treasury Bill has at length been reached notwithstanding the federalists have thrown every obstruction in the Way. Bell s gag Bill has also been summarily disposed of and in such a manner As should make author appear very ridiculous and supporters Small. The question was not the usual one a shall the Bill be read u second or a third time a but was a shall the Bill be rejected ? and in this ignominious Way was John Bell s Federal pet a Cag Bill sent after predecessors of Crittenden and John Adams memory and that by a vote which taken with the one on Crittenden a should for a Long time prevent the federalists from making another attempt to gag any portion of our fellow citizens. It stood 108 yeas to 53 nays. We observe that or. Rariden one of the two Federal members from this state voted to sustain the Bill. The other Federal member or. Proffit with More cunning dodged the question and it is Gratifying to state that every Democrat voted in favor of rejecting the odious thing. On the part of those who absconded the Globe justly re the Noble Terre haute band enlivened tie scene by j a a a a exr Uso to stroll in the direction of the martial having Digen barked they River and soon Leartus in sure enough that it was no were formed and moved through the principal Street Joan. There were Coti greated the gentle and the to the a Tiff when they were i in used. What a a a a pie the former dealing out the o be Joyful for seemed somewhat ominous was. That amidst All this i i Inch the latter appeared Labouring hard to mount a Quot a res Quot they did not choose to commit themselves Parade not a solitary Banner was to be seen Ric i re , dug out on one Side on wheels. This be of Quot record in voting to disfranchised any class of colors if we except the one carried by the Milit iry. A a Zjr , some were placed in the Canoe citizens having the remembrance of the Fate of the floated in the Breeze. No Quot shouting Quot rent the air us some behind it. Then came a big Cannon with j of Quot Adames in their Eye and cautioned and no prayers were offered for the Gallant old i matches and loaded for aught we know to by the fact that or. Adams himself would not Soldier Quot who is to help federalism into Power a it it or what purpose this latter was paraded we Are at j venture to Lead off As usual in favor of a measure hat. The masterly performances of the band while on the March proved the old adage that Quot prac a loss to imagine. The Parade then moved through i proceeded upon the Ultra which some laughter in others pity and or Ved fatal to his father. The Hartford convention Tice makes the military also appear to j a it a few absolute contempt. We would a at members and the rank est of the abolitionists de have improved their a discipline in a remarkable de i every Fanner in the state could have witnessed this credit for the tenacity with which they adhere Gree. So on the whole from the appearance of the . One thing of fret to be noticed even byte or. Bell As besides show my the boldness crowd on sunday last it was made Manifest that it dupes themselves that the getters up of these in a an Quot ill wind that blows nobody we have follies the aristocracy never show themselves in the no doubt that ipod the glorious movement been made processions marching through the streets but will on any other Day than the one Desigio cited there Ery condescendingly stand in would live been 11,000 Uio Tead of Only Quot 1100&Quot in Corners and i Thev Merel Smi attendance. We have neither time nor space to de a Joe their vanity by making fools of themselves vote this week to the convention but it shall receive i occasionally try to get up a shout at the Corners attention in due time.

Actuated by this double motive we find or. Bell we regret to that a worthy Young Man named slip ill had an Arm broken during the scrape.

Another Federal whig outrage. As the Steamer Fox on her Way up to the Tippecanoe meeting was passing Pottsville the attention of the whig delegates was directed to a White garment elevated on a pole which they at first supposed Tobe a complimentary Flag and they accordingly touched off the Cannon took off their hats and gave Oliree cheers the Steamer had passed some distance when the idea was suggested by some one that the said Flag was a lady s unmentionable a garment for which the soft skinned supporters of or. Harrison entertain the most deadly hostility. It is supposed that the sight of a red one in dog Days would give the Universal whig party the hydrophobia. The boat rounded to and a party of from forty to one Hundred modern whig heroes armed with Slicks Bowie knives a a. Landed with the intention of taking signal vengeance on the offending Emblem. They found it defended by or. Win. P. Dexter a gentleman about sixty years of age and very much crippled from the effects of wounds received in defending his country in Many a hard fought Battle during the War. Or. Dexter informed Thein that As flags and devices of ail kinds were the order of the Duy he had raised one of his own on his own ground to suit himself and that it should not be taken Down while he was Able to defend it. The modern whig heroes then Drew their Bowie knives and rushed on or. Dexter who was soon disarmed his weapon thrown into the River himself precipitated Down a precipice and seriously injured. An aged citizen who entreated them not to murder or. Dexter received a severe blow on the head with a Handspike and was compelled to retire at tiie Perril of his life. The modern whig heroes then Cut Down them blend Tore it into fragments and retired to the boat amid the loud Huzzah of their silk stocking coadjutor. The age the infirmities and past services of or. Dexter with the brutal treatment he received Combine to Render this one of the most infamous outrages Ever perpetrated in Indiana. Or. Dexter was no Holiday Soldier he was one of the lion hearts that breasted a song. By Sikdar a tto Dern whig for taster.

And the question again recurring on seconding to elected it would cause Rivers of blood to the demand for the previous quest Ion it was decided a have seen this silly lie in several Federal a opens in the ayes 77, noes 60. I and thought it unworthy notice. But we do this at so there was a second. The suggestion of a person who avers that if the up . A,.d Iho q.ie6ti<.n then being. Quot shall the main Cotui icing is not Brili coming lie will cast his Quot Quot a visit Boule. In. .11 i vote for Martin Van Burn. The hero of the thames or. It list asked the yeas and nays which were it is a melancholy fact that or. Harrison is in the hands of keepers who not Only refuse him permission to read and answer his own letters but actually keep his person in a state of surveillance for fear that if they permit him to go at Large he May not succeed in carrying out the whig policy which is that he make no further declaration of Liis principles for the Public Eye while occupying his present position the reason of this policy is evident. Or. Harrison has expressed himself Init in juror of and against abolition. His supporters in the South seize on what he has said in favor of the institution of slavery As evidence that he is sound on that subject sedum Ousby keeping out of View what he has said against it. His sup orters at the no rth use what he has said and written in favor of abolition in the same manner. If or. Nillies any further declaration in favor of abolition he cannot get the vote of any Southern state. If he says any thing More against abolition those fanatics will St a out of the a political contest and leave the presidential question to he decided by the whig party proper and the democrats in which Case or. Harrison would lose All Hope in the North. The abolitionists Aro formidable Only in a of of the Eastern states where they hold the bal Anre of Power. Hence the whig policy is that or. Harrison Quot make no further declaration of his principles for the Public Eye while occupying his present the whig National Convent ice issued no address to the people for this reason the discordant factions which Cem pose the party could unite on no common principles their Only Bond of Union is Mutual and rancorous a hostility to Martin Van Buren and the democratic party. Their Only Hope of sic Cess is in playing the stupendous game of fraud which was concocted at Lla Risburg in carrying out Vav hich it became necessary to place or. Harrison in the keeping of a committee of three whose duty it , to pc rent him from making any declaration of principles for the Public Eye occupying his present for the Wabash enquirer. Twenty reasons Why we will Mot Tot Job of brai. Harbison 1. Because he is so wreak in talents that he Mast have guardians appointed to keep bit Jaq a Biff Bounds. 2. Because he is an abolition list and an imbecile old my. 3. Because he fun Fercl the indians to select his camping ground at Tippecanoe and then let Beni Surprise him napping. 4. Because he is nothing Nio a than a tool fur the Federal party. 5. Because he claimed the Victory of the Thau Iea won by Shelby and Johnson. 6. Because he is the Federal tool to take the Power out of the hands of the Community and place it in the hands of aristocrats. 7. Because he resigned his commission in the midst of a raging War 8. Because fee deserted the North Western Frontier together with fort Stephenson and left it to be defended by Crug in and his spartan band. 0. , he was complimented with a quilted flannel Petticoat by the ladies of Cabihi Cote fur his bravery in the War. 10. 11. Because he has refused to give his sentiment on important questions of interest to the Community. 12. Because we have no need of a log Cabin and hard cider president. 13. Because he sanctioned a Law to disgrace his own sex to sell poor White women. 14. Because when a minister to South America he had not sense enough to keep in the bound of hi9 Mission. 15. A 16. A a 17. Because he is under the special control of three guardians to wit Spencer Gwinn and Wright. 18. Because if he cannot be a candidate a without guardians be certainly cannot he president without them. 19. Because we go against a National Bank to i for the sub Treasury. 20. And Las tiv be Casc be go for Van Buren Johnson and Howard. M in y voters. The writer of the above will see that we have left out a few of his Quot reasons Quot not because we do not believe that they Are True to the letter but because we Are so circumstanced that every thing is seized upon and converted into a weapon of attack to injure and break us up. The omitted Quot reasons Quot being so pointed and True a for in their truth consists their Point a we Are sure would be made a pretext for an attack. Besides we have proof of them and when we shall find room the whole shall be Given and in such a shape As to prevent the Coti Tangency above alluded to. Democratic meeting.

Clayton have deserted our ranks and gone Over to the enemy. Nothing can be More unfounded. Either of those gentlemen would consider the report a slander upon his character and we contradict it unequivocally. Instead of such being the fact we can show two changes to our Side in this county to one against of. Since the above was written we have seen or. Clayton and he authorizes us to contradict unequivocally the assertion that he has turned to Harrison. He Enys that neither tottering merchants bloated land speculators or frightened stockholders will Ever induce him to turn from his old jeffersonian democratic principles. That had he been a supporter of the Federal party their late disgusting Mummery would have prevented him from continuing his support if the by Irving of the tent on lust week was not the work of some unthinking boys we Are now inclined to think from a circumstance which leads some others to the same conclusion that it was done to cast Opin orium on the democrats. Some people will hang themselves if rope is allowed them. Little Harrison paper a slept Quot palladium Quot printed we believe somewhere in Wayne county has placed a Well engraved likeness of candidate in a obscure Corner of fourth Page Quot straws Quot amp a.

Or Perhai if a certain Law passed by a certain hero and his two associates was in Force the luckless Wight might receive Quot death q if any our readers should be dig Libed to believe the false assertions of the federalists that Van Buren opposed the War we can refer them to an old gentleman in this town who was Well acquainted with gov. Tompkins and or. Van Buren Hing j worked for the during the discussion of that question. He will Tell them that or. Stu Buren did More than an other Man in new York towards a staining or. Madison in that measure. The venerable gentleman to whom we allude is perfectly Well acquainted with the politics of that state from tet Darr to this having in his younger Days taken by Active part in �11 the exciting topics of the Darr. So if Jroud Dortht me cod talk with him. N. E. seems by the last news from Oglend that the Boundary question is Likely to be settled without disturbance provided the Bute of Maine is willing to relinquish her claim to a pan of the territory in dispute. It is proposed to sum Tiute the line run by the King of the Netherlands As the Tnie Boundary and England is to pay Maine Jsoo-600 Sterlion. Hew the Down eaters will like this Wec Mot say. The vice the first we were a Little inclined to regret that the convention which assembled at Baltimore did not nominate a candidate for the vice presidency. We began to think they had omitted to do that which they ought to have done. We Are now satisfied that they were right. And indeed the fault found by the Federal Preeser would convince us of the fact had we no other data on which to found our opinion. Ach shows that the Fede quiets begin to feel the effect of their scandalous Proe Edinga against us in their efforts to break up the Prev if we judge from the false and premature trials now making by their accredited organs. Trio to Nonivee Are Well understood and will be duly by an intelligent Community. Give is the , give us the Quot of the times Quot in your vicinities. Let us hear of the Progress of the Good cause of redeeming the state and Tell us All about the thousand and one democrats who have changed to tho support of their old enemy federalism keep up communication with each other. Do it also through the enquirer occasionally. We shall be glad to hear from every county in the state. Let us have All the Cotta it information possible. It will be a Mutual Benefit so Don t forget. New Yolk of our exchanges Are engaged in puffing the new York alias. To can t do sofar it does not need it. Just hand a person a copy of the alias and if he does not sub scribe for it set him Down As one who has no Money to spare or a Nincompoop. The editor is an Independent fellow truly so and our readers know that they always make a a St Rato paper. Call and see the Atlas and bring your Money As it will save your going after it when Yon have seen the paper. Counte traits. A look out for $90 counterfeit note of the Shawneetown Bank. Also Toee everlasting counterfeit 3s of the Northern ban of Kentucky of which there Are plenty in circulation. We have also lately seen Many counterfeit mexican Dou Lars american half dim a. The latter Are difficult to do but it the Quai prs May be Der tested by Obaer Volg that Tbs Emblem of Lirty a a looking to the right instead of the left. O it seems that the Mammoth lottery Quot is Likely to turn out a grand hoax. If it does we should not like to be in the shoes of some people in new York and new Orleans. If we bad n t lost the Arcade by it we should n t care a snap. Tho celebrated we. M. Price has arrived in this country. From nil appear aces he will sustain federalism and the federalists will try and Clear up his character which to think May turn out to be rather a difficult matter. Communication or. Editor a the Iol Loving dialogue did actually take i it lace at least in substance in my House on a tilt in presence of a number of gentlemen there assembled on business. Yours p. P.
