From the Indianapolis Journal of the ISth.
In the Senate yesterday almost the entire
day waa taken up in discussing a preamble
and resolutions of Mr. Cravens of Jefferson,
from a msjjrity of the C. muiitee on Fed
eral Relations, defioibg th State of Indi
ana as regards her relationship to the sev
eral members ol the Federal Union.
Messrs. Craveus, Conner, Steele and
Helletl addressed the Senile in able, tlo
quent and patriotic speech, id support
of the resolutions, all taking strong Union
grounds, but denouncing treason and trai
tors wherever existing.
Mr. Ray introduced a loog memorial to
the Coujressof the United States, from a
minority of the ame committee, a docu
ment that had been agreed upon ii caucus
of the Democratic members of both htauch
es of the Legislature. The memorial sym
pathizes with the traitor of South Caroli
ua, and alleges that the South hss griev
ances which should be confessed and re
dressed. It is a produciiou of a very par
tisan character, whilu the report of the
majority of the committee has no reference
to party or sectionalism whatever, ine
Democratic memorial was supported In
apefche decidedly pro slavery, by Messrs
Rsy and Slack, and by Mr. Wolf, io an
argument dignified, comparatively reason
able, and free, in good part from the
stompish" character of his Democratic
associate. .Mr Slack, nf.er denouncing
the Quakers of rienry cout.ty as the de-
Cendant of tho unhung lories of the Caro
linas, took occasion to say that rather than
have the Union dissolved he would have
negroes sold iato slavery at every county
at in Indiana.
Ilocx: Pttitiont were presented on the
Mihject of the game law ; to protect sheep
from dogs; and to have the lands of Notre
Dsrae University taxed.
Rettlutione of lixjuiry were introduced,
almost numberless, among the most impor
tant are: lo abolish school township libra
ries; whether our kidnapping act interferes
with ihe exc r.ion of the Fugitive Slave
Law; to keep common roads in repair by
poll snd ad valorem taxes; to require these
roads t be worked between the lt of J une
and the 1st of October; to establish a
achool for idiots; a hospital lor epileptic
pattern; airecung an aci io o reportea i..r
the distribution of the $255.000 referred to
.f r . u n'i f inn ... r j .
on the 6lh pae of the report of the Super
iatendent of Public Instruction; directing
a bill to bt) reported to aulhorigj the heir
of deceased foreigners, who bad taken the
oath of indention to become citizens, lo in
herit their real estate.
DiiCk-tiion was hsd on the subject of the
condition nf the country, on a motion to re
quire a repurl en Monday next, from the
Committee ' Thirteen, and on the mat
