Tioga Eagle (Newspaper) - August 25, 1841, Wellsboro, Pennsylvania1. .4 for Sola Purdom of meet ing contingency referred to Why should it have been and i submit to the Senate whether it Ean be believed that any state would be Likely to sit quietly Down under such a state of things in a great Mea sure of Public interest their patriotism May be successfully appealed to but to infer their assent from circumstances at War with such inference i cannot but regard As calculated to excite a feel ing at fatal enmity with the peace and Harmony of the country. I must therefore regard this clause As assert ing the Power to be in Congress to establish offices of discount in a state not Only without its assent but against its dissent and so regarding it i cannot Sanction it on general principles the right in Congress to prescribe terms to any state implies a superiority of Power and control deprives the transaction of ail pretence to compact Between them and terminates As we have seen in the total abrogation of Freedom of action on the part of the states. But further the state May express after the Moit solemn form of legislation its dissent which May from time to time thereafter be repealed in full View of its own interest which can never be separated from the Wise and Beni Focient operation of this government and yet Congress May by virtue of the last Rule its Law and upon grounds which to such state will appear to rest on a constructive necessity and propriety and nothing More. I regard the Bill As asserting for Congress the right to in corporate a United states Bank with Power and right to establish offices of discount and Deposit in the several states of this Union with or without heir Content a principle to which i have always heretofore been opposed and which can never obtain my Sanc Tion. And waving All other considerations growing out of its other provi Sions i return it to the House in which it originated with these my objections to its approval. John Tyler.

The minority in the Senate. There never was a prouder Cle exhibited to moment and i found my self tossed on l a wave grasping my frail support with desperate Energy. At one moment i saw nothing but the yawning deep and the blackening the next the floating mass was before me As the wave pitched me up and around were my fellow passengers struggling with the Waves some supported by nothing but their Strong moment growing weaker while the wild agonizing shrieks of those who were every moment taking their last look at the upper world and those who were still clinging to the bulwarks but every moment dropping with every pitch of the vessel made such a scene As nightly haunts my dreams and can never be obliterated while memory remains. I had been in the water but a Short time though each moment seemed an age when i heard the voice of Captain Titus who the last to leave the vessel was now in the water calling out with a firm voice on coming of words of Hope How cheered us in that hour of gloom. A moment alter i saw the lights of a Steamboat and in a Short time the Hull of the Clinton which upon seeing the fire had hastened to our assistance. Her boats were ready lowered and guided by the Light of the vessel and the prayers for he a Twenty seven of us were saved from a watery grave. Some were terribly burned and some in the last stage of exhaustion but All thankful for their preservation. Of the poor German emigrants i do not know that one was saved. Parents and children seem to have found one common grave and Lay at the Bottom of the Lake All locked together. There was but one female of the whole num Ber saved and among the passengers were some of Superior elegance and and Beauty. The number Tut rued and drowned cannot be lets than two Hun dred. It May be More. Of never May i witness such a scene of horror. It seems like a frightful too real. That Pale old Man haunts me. The agony of some of those Beautiful girls will a impressed upon my mind forever and i would that i could forget the horrible sight of that poor fellow calling in the air for some escape from the flames which were rag ing All around him. It was All Terri ble dreadful horrible i can find no language which will portray my feel Ings. Adieu.

And his son had some time past announced publicly that they bad succeeded in the Means of direct ing balloons in the air and several experiments on a Small scale in the court Yard of the Ecol Militare in Paris had been attended with satisfactory results. A subsequent Experiment has verified All their Hopes m. S.
