We have spent so much time in Elliis glorious affair that we purpose deferring our remarks till next i go a the following paragraph week. Terre haute never knew a prouder Day. Und the effect produced by the real hero and our How a Ard was immense which is Well evidenced by the writhing contortions of the editor of the courier. We have no time to say More this week. A card. We respectfully tender our sincere thanks to Hez Eesiah Riugi esq., of Turman s Creek for his present of a barrel of very excellent cider and a lot of Apple butter. Such Marks of approbation of our political course As or. R. Kindly expresses it causes feelings which we feel unable to give utterance to. While such Marks of kindness Are extended to us we cannot we will not falter in our course again we thank fiend Riggs and we assure him that while v. E i ivc such friends we eel like Quot Gen. Howard was my favorite candidate As the most of you know for governor and Indiana will be fortunate if she finds in his late successful opponent one who in Point of talents and moral Worth proves to by it his equal. Judge bigger did not have to beat Gen. Howard he beat himself by the fatal vote he gave for the Quot he beat himself by the fatal vote be gave for the sub Treasury Quot says George w. Ewing. It is Only necessary for us to say that Gen. Howard left Congress before the sub Treasury Bill passed and consequently did not and could not have voted upon that question. Entitled to the same credit Are All his other statements. The reports of the late elections South of us Are backward on account of bad roads. We have received enough of Correct re a a a Ai turns however to show that a very Large portion Somme Piper commences the i.

And if our subscribers will but do their he a a a a a Quot Quot we feel and it is rapidly Diirr eating. It we have ennui it Ible i in right. In this their cry is As hypocritical As in every thing else. We clip the following from the Illinois state Register. A a Jon Rumo of Knox county Indiana who is travelling with a or. Shoe the same Man that our state Bank Mihk Tiet Weon 1 und 2u0,000 reasons for remembering ii i to a halt in Oliie place on monday and tuesday last for the purpose of enlightening the suckers As to tie beauties of federalism and its candidate Gen. Harrison. Ewing was very sour Kier and wholly destitute of the Courtesy due Between political opponents which we suppose to be either a natural trait in the Man s character or else owing to his having been very badly beaten by s Democrat for Congress in a District which is decidedly for Harrison. After or. Douglass had closed late on monday night having left not grease spot of gov. Duncan Ewing proposed making a reply. Or. Douglass consented upon condition that he would leave him time to make a Short rejoinder. Ewing would not consent. Or. Douglass then proposed to meet Ewing the next Day in h fair Field. Ewing declined this also upon the plea that be had to leave town. Ewing was backed by the Junto Here in declining every fair and honorable proposition. They were anxious to play the game of too Pluck one but the democrats boldly prevented it. They told the whigs in Plain English that such a game should nut be played. I he whigs then backed out and carried their Man to the Junto club room. The next Day to the astonishment of the people generally Ewing made a five hours speech in the Market House from two o clock till dark occasionally replying to or. Douglass s speech of the Day before and All this after having declined an appointment with Douglas when offered to him the night before. In his speech Ewing brought up All the old exploded falsehoods and calumnies of the Federal tribe which have been Long since exposed and Laid by in this Quarter. He made what every unprejudiced Man would pronounce a Low blackguard speech. He said the president of the United states was a liar undertook to a Aluminate Howard of Indiana one of the most talented and virtuous men in that state accused Van by ren and the democracy of corruption of favouring defaulters amp a. and Ever and anon sipping from a Tumbler containing i. Fiery looking liquid was it hard cider or Abd Brandt t which stood on the Rostrum before him. During the reply which or. Douglass did not fail to make Ewing repeatedly interrupted him in a very ungracious manner and As the hour grew late he declined every fair proposition made by Douglass in the Way of rejoinder and sur rejoinder. Being thus bated Douglass did not spare the Federal missionary. He most emphatically Quot carried the War into Africa Quot and if John Ewing of Indiana does not remember Douglass till the Day of his death it will be because the Powers of memory will have failed him. We never saw a Man so literally used up smashed demolished As was John Ewing of Knox county Indiana. Douglass spoke from dusk until 10 o clock at night. On All occasions bold and fearless he was More than usually excited and animated on this occasion. He exposed the falsehoods and humbugs of the Federal party As trumped up by the missionary and then carried duty we Are a need of a final Triumph no inclination to Flig and intend to keep up a hot and heavy fire while we have a left in the locker. In the conduct of a periodical of such an extensive circulation it is not improbable that occasionally articles May find admittance which will not be pleasing to every Reader. But he should Bear in mind that we Cater not for him alone that out of thousands besides himself some palates must be suited with what to him May be obnoxious. We shall Endeavor for the future by a strict surveillance spread it from Maine to Georgia.

It is perhaps unnecessary to say that its political course will be the same As heretofore for Quot sex Ual Laws to secure to All equal or that if every democratic voter in the United states goes to the polls and casts his vote our distinguished president Martin in Burn will be re elected by a much larger majority than he received in 1836.

Wanted a few copies of no. 50, vol. Ii. Of thin j paper. Persons having that number will Confer a Reat favor by leaving or sending them to this office j i the country Indiana journal publishes v list of Quot gatherings Quot of the whigs in thirty different places. The sum total is 842,000. Vve have kept a list and according to the statements of the whig papers the number at such places As our list embraces is 2.0 of i. However for argument Sake we will take the journal s estimate which it acknowledges embraces Only just what then recurred to its mind. To put the expenses of each person at the lowest possible estimate we will say it Cost each one Only $10. Whole number 842,000 10 in my Cousin animation of in Oil t made a proposition for the organization of Fara Ieni Ontha Wabash into Cora Paniev for to ppm of Reli trim themselves of the Burth Elii in pm i them a merchants and in Ricer. Ill health pre i pm from pan Mii the met Fuith a at Thor pm it that inability Beni now removed i will pet meet a Little further. That much Good would grow oat of a ugh i arrangement i have m doubt. The adv gauges would soon become apparent to every one by Lum ing a few meeting to each township and compar my the merchants Bill with each a her a a the whole with the prices current of the Eastern cities. In this Way individuals would be enabled to detect impositions which had been Practised upon them and also enable them to distinguish the fair dealer from the foul. They would moreover discover the heavy tax they pay to merchants Over and above a fair profit. This would be the first step towards reforming our customs and curtailing our expenses. The next would be to form an agricultural society in each township and let each individual of the society contribute a Small sum yearly fur the purpose of purchasing and introducing into their neighbourhoods the Best kinds of Stock and seeds and then through their officers become competitors for the prices St the county agricultural fairs. In this Way they would be enam their Stock and seeds with others it isto importation of which they could make the Best selections. I think it must be evident to every reflecting mind that there must be extraordinary exertions made by the citizens of this state to relieve themselves within any reasonable time of the Thra Dom into which they have been plunged by the recklessness of her rulers. To sell out and leave her a Many Are doing in consequence of the difficulties under which we labor i consider both unpatriotic and cowardly. The Coward sneaks from danger the Brave fight on. This practice of offering and Selling farms for Little or nothing compared with their real value is in my Humble opinion calculated to do us a great Deal of harm. It will stimulate individuals to wring the last cent from their purses to enlarge their Domain already too Large for their Means of improvement and in this Way Many Small neat farms will be bought and left tenant less and in a few years grown up with shrubs and Brambles a Harbor Only for owls reptiles and perhaps beasts of Pray. Unless we determine to desist from this course of procedure i fear the greater part of the Money that will be paid for pork this fall and Winter will go in this Way and take its exit for Texas or some other new country West or Northwest and perhaps the major part of the remainder will go to the Eastern cities to pay for merchandise and leave us As destitute of a currency As Ever. Some Farmers Lay out their last cent to Purchase Large tracts of land for the purpose of settling their children near them when in four cases in five it fails to answer the purpose intended. A Large majority of the youth in this Section of country have a Strong inclination to emigrate further West. It seems to be almost an instinct of their nature to desire to climb Snow capped mountains above the Clouds and descend and Chase the immense herds of Buffalo in the Beautiful Plains below. Such romantic ideas continually ruin Niue in their Heads so that a Man May Settle his son Ever so Well in this part of the country and it would not at All be surprising to find him in a few years settling himself Down again on the Borders of Quot Devil s Lake Quot or in the great Quot Jaques Valley Quot Oregon territory or god Only knows where. There is another great error committed by Farmers Here. When they happen to have a few dollars by them that they have not present use for they loan it to merchants and brokers supposing it to be More Safe in their hands than elsewhere while Many enterprising individuals engaged in erecting and conducting useful manufactories Are Ai owed to sink Abr want of a few dollars to the great discouragement of All Enterprise of the kind. This accounts for the enormous High Price of Many manufactured articles when the material is Protic de in the county cheap and in abundance. Thus the Farmers sustain the brokers and merchants to the exclusion of More useful interests and likewise the Bank sustains them. No wonder they have run mad with Success and assume to Rule the country. They have gulled the people in Money matters and now think to Gull them in political matters and with some i am sorry to say Are too successful. Perhaps the merchants Are not More to blame in these matters than ourselves and if we continue to a ii ii body of ibo a him so a that sock the a a a a tie Fri ital Iii in Eai until i a Noil int it up to Chism am be whining and if flu a deep a acid on the to to dress and Honor it twin a own a a tape Rienche of the Laai Frei to iced me Flat All that hinders the Oiveri Anis Bani it a brokers of this state from do of so in the oppo mity.

Banks and merchants in times of expansion of the currency pretend to be very Liberal until they get the people sufficiently in debt for their purpose and then a contraction takes place and it seems the a Lijole fraternity of Bank men and merch Tiu sex of Ludia iia Ena Sylvania and cent the few refractory ones that will not be dictated Ujj from the Saraia e0n, Tol advert of Quot a gentleman arrived he by who has Jikit been through pe�>�ylv4i if Ani if naw Persow whose authority Enouiti be no pne questions who kno a imly.

Thus for the last Twenty five years has the surplus earnings of a year in at least every five of the producing classes passed into the bands of a cuss of men who do not work nor neither do their wives and daughters spin yet Solomon in All Bis glory had not a Host so Well arrayed. So Rouse up Allye producing classes whether you be the Farmers mechanics or labourers for we All have an equal interest in bringing about Reform in our state and if any Man is in doubt of the course to pursue in regard to politics and not the Means of examine both sides of the question satisfactorily let him watch the course Pur aped by merchants and Bankers and purse the very opposite and in nine cases out of ten if he be a Farmer or Mechanic he will Advance his own interest without any other criterion to judge by for As i shewed before merchants and the producing classes have opposing interests in this Section of country and it is not Likely merchants would oppose their own interests when they of tvs the Means of becoming so Well informed upon the subject. We Are and from our situation Ever must be an agricultural people and to attempt to ape the fashions and manners of commercial countries and cities would set As uncut Fly upon us As regimentals on a Monkey. So let us be Plain in our dress pm in in our manners regardless of the examples of City dandies. I am convinced we will never have reason to repent it. Our children will bless us when they arrive at maturity. Instead of bankrupting our estates to buy gew Gaws to decorate their persons beyond what is suitable to their occupations we will be enabled to transmit to them a competence to begin the world with together with just notions of Economy Correct morals industrious habits a useful education and Correct democratic principles which perhaps is All that is necessary to make a people prosperous and Happy.

Within our reach of relieving ourselves we will certainly deserve it. Merchants like other men act from motives of interest and like the usurious jews whatever their interests dictate in regard of usury they have the heart to do. And perhaps no country on Earth has Ever suffered More Jewing than Indiana has for the last six or eight months. At this very time Indiana state Bonds Are shaved by her own citizens Twenty per. Cent. When in All probability they will be loaned out next Spring to the same individuals whom necessity con Pella a to sell them at ten per. Cent and the Back interest and yet we plod on under these scourges with the stupidity of beasts of Burthen. It is now High time we should Wake up and counteract these growing evils. We must not wait for legislative enactments to relieve us although they can do much to stimulate and encourage the productive Industry of a country. To depend too much upon them As 1 fear has been the Case is like choosing the Rainbow for the Golden Shower. We must depend More upon our own Industry and Economy. We must instead of buying Mure land because it is cheap unless we have a surplus fund improve what we have already and let our sons choose the country most congenial to their tastes.
