We are Tally convinced that a tri-weekly paper will be equally valuable and more economical than a daily, and have therefore concluded so to publish. Our session paper will be of the same large size as the Weekly Indiana State Senti nel, and afforded at one dolhr. We shall have full and accurate reports of the proceedings of the Legis lature made up daily ; and we have also engaged competent law reporters to report the decisions or the high courts. The importance of the action of the next Legislature upon subjects of vast interest to the peo ple at large, must Ic apparent to all ; and all arc in terested in the information to be obtained from a full report of their proceedings. We have further en gaged regular correspondents at Washington city, who will keep us constantly and correctly advised of p U matters of importance relative to every branch of the Government. A9 some may wish to subscribe for a longer term than the se-sion, or for the Weekly Sentinel, we subjoin our terms in full : State Sentinel, serni-wcckly, and tri-wcekly during the session, Ä4 00 per year.

One of the principal avowed causes of the hostility of the Old Democratic Junto, together with its new recruits against the Editors of the State Sentinel, irrew out or the conflicting views in relation to the Presidential canvass previous to the last Baltimore Convention. From the time of the defeat of 1340, to within two months of the Baltimore Convention of May, 1944, i it was almost universally considered, and conceded by a sort of general consent, that Mr. Van Buren would be the candidate of the Democratic party for re-election. So far as we are Concerned, we are willing to ac knowledge that we participated in what seemed to ! be the general sentiment of democrats, that tee owed it to vzr own party, much more than to Mr. Van Bu ren, to re-elect him if we could. But we never were so much bound to Mr. Van Buren, or any other man, as to induce us to hazard the srecess of our party and its principles for the sake of showing our confidence in and respect to him. Our course during the canvass was governed by the following considerations: We regarded the nomination of Mr. Van Buren as ns an event very likely to happen. The Baltimore Convention, however, was the tribunal to settle that question. We thought that the wisest course which cuuJd be pursued, especially in this State, where par ties were so nearly balanced, was to keep ournlvcs and our party VxCo.m Mitted as to any vtan f to keep united and if possible progressive in party strength on the grounds of ruBLic folicy atone; and to point continually to the Billimore Convention as the proper and timely arbitrator of the question of candidacy, in whose decision all should acquiesce. Were these views riiht and politic, or were they wrong ap.d impolitic ! On the answer to this ques tion depends the approval or disapproval of our course by the Democratic party at large. That we maintained this impartial position in rela tion to candidates, is indirectly though strongly prov ed by these facts, to wit : While here, at Indiana polis, it was charged by the Old Junto that we were too exclusively devoted to Mr. Van Buren, on the other hand, in the Northern pnrt of the State, it was supposed that we said little in his favor, and that we were too much disposal to favor Gen. Cess ct Mr. Van It uren's expense The truth is, that acting in accordance with the policy to which wc have referred above, ami which was based on the necessity of the times, and the cir- i cumstances predominant, we did endeavor, zealously, j I to (ok Mr. Van Burcn against the false charges which had been heaped upon him by the Whig, es- pccially during the Hard Cider Canvass. We were - induced to do this, without avowing him to be our first choice as a candidate for re-election, for various reasons : It was due to our party as well as to him self, that the false charges against him should be re pelled and refuted, for the partifs character and cre dit, as well as 3Ir. Van Buren's. If lie had obtained the nomination, as it was highly probable that he Would, then we should have had the advantage of the dfasiie warfare with tha whigs beforehand, and would have immediately changed our attitude into one exclusively ojj'tnsive against their principles and their candidate. Whether Mr. Van Buren was nominated or not, the defensive articles which wc published in his favor could not possibly have done the slightest harm, cither to our party, or to any other candidate. So that nothing could, in any event, by such a course, be lost to the democratic parly. It was a safe policy if not a 6ure one. This policy, however, by no means suited the Old Junto at Indianapolis. Supremely selfish themselves, they could not realize the fact that the motives which actuated us were any more generous, or any less heartless or mercenary than their own. Following the camp for the sake of "spoils" alone, they could not believe that men of ordinary intelligence, could do a soldier's duty for any thing but pay. They paw, or thought they saw, that the chances for them to ob- j tain office under Mr. V. B. was smaller that it would be under any body elre. A. F. Morrison knac this was A i predicament, for Mr. Van Buren while Presi dent had refused to give him a land öflice, because of his known mercenary and doubtful political charact'r. Others supposed it would he the same wit!; thm, be cause the (Hohe had announced, that it would not be likely that those who had held office for years under Jackson and Van Buren would be reinstated, if Mr. Van Huren should be "restored." The Old Junto then as we have observed, were not willing that we should maintain an impartial position as to candidates. (vThey wished and solicited and urged us, virtually to drop Mr. Van Burcn, and, in advance of the Baltimore Convention, to declare Gen. Cass the first choice of Indiana. This wc refused to do. We should have been to tally unworthy of the portion we occupy if wc h id i vieiueu to tneir unwarranie-u ami iae solicitations. - , ., . r . f , .iii Convention, we never refused to give the friends of any and every candid itc, including (Jen. Cass, tr columns to discuss the reatiie f , , , f . j ' nM ... 4 ., i rnur r. iimi urnnnr r . j ii.il iiiu juiii'j r.m nut avail themelves of this liberality more freely was owin- " to tho fact that thry relied, as they always have done, much more on intrigw, trickery, and management, . . . . , , . A than upon open and honest avowals and appeal- to the people. In ju?tirication of our refusal to yield to their un warrantable requisition?, wc cited these men to the State Convention f January, 1811, which had np- proved and adapted the policy of referring the subject of personal preferences entirely to the Ration a Con- vention fur settlement, though it was well known that a lare majority of that Mate Convention person ally preferred Mr. Van Burcn. We cited them tJso to the numerous meetings of the people, and the re- solutions which were passed on this subject ; and to the Tress of the State, a majority of which haddeclar- cd Mr. V. 11. their first choice. Hut all these and other considerations of like nature, had no weight with the Old Junto. They did not believe in the pro priety of waiting for the unbiassed action of the Na tional Contention. They wished to decide the matter before the meeting of that body. And it is because and only because wc refused to become parties to their dishonesty and fraud, that we incurred at that time, and have ever since enjoyed their inveterate hatred. The Cciisiis. In publishing the returns from the Anditof of State's office, of the white male inhabitants over the age of 21 years, in the several counties of this State, we ac cidentally omitted to give the sum total. As we ob serve numerous errors, both in the list and total, as copied in other papers, we give the latter according to the table, viz: 105,400. The proceedings of our Rush County friend J ifi meeting were received after our paper was ready fur the press. They shall appear in our next. The same is the case with the Switzerland County nrfw,n i n ITS. OrWc arc again constrained to let the State Bank, Sinking Fund, and one at tvo other subjects lie over a short time. Our apology tö them all. Wc never strike until 4rul!y prepared. Morrison's Democracy. Morrison supposes himself very cunning. In the first mimber of his piratical sheet, he has attempted to prove himself a Democrat, and eays that a vry laborious effort has been made by a certain class of politicians to create an alarm or panic in reference , to" his paper. He says ire, Chapmans, have "know ingly uttered and repeated numerous untruths and slanders." (We will iust stop here, and pronounce ! this statement false, and dare him to the proof.) Morrison goes cn and says, "to these charges, where he is well known, he would scorn to make a reply." lie then branches out in eight different paragraphs, numbered and labelled, in praise of himself, and his Democracy! and a ninth, begging editors to re-publish his rigmarole as a statement of facts!! We will merely remark oh a sentence qüoted above, and pass on to examine the Democracy of Alexander F. Morrison, as appears from the records; and, as we shall take occasion to refer to it in detail whenever necessary, we shall be brief. Morrison says he would scorn to reply to charges which are made against him where he is known. So tar as we have made charges against him, this is cer tainly a most wise conclusion, and evinces the great est smartness we ever knew him to exhibit. We vouch that wherever he is known, it would be useless for him to reply, successfully, to any charge we have made; and his cunning exists only in that he has avoided a hard job of labor, for which he has a mortal antipa thy, as we believe no hian has seen him thus engaged in the lal four or five vears, at least in working hours. But we dare him to point out a single untruth wc hae knowingly uttered about him or any member of the Royal Family. In No. 1, Morrison says he "was never any Ihing else than a democrat Irom his boyhood.' And says he "voted for Jackson in 1SJ4, in l'JS, and in IS'4'2. He voted" he says, "for Martin Van Buren in 193G and in 1-10." And he further pays, "that he voted for James Iv. Folk in 1914." As to'lM, 1B'J8, we know nothing:; but we would not believe him un der oath when he says he voted for Van Buren in 18;5G and IS 10, or that he or any of the "family" vo ted for Mr. Polk last year. They had no idea of his election, as was evinced by one of them cursing his nomination by the Baltimore Convention. It was not till the eleventh hour, when all things demonstrated the almost certain success of the Democracy, that they even prettnded to be favorable to Mr. Tolk's election. They felt more disposed to remain on the fence, pre pared fr any intrigue that might offer, to being in the field or in the ranks. But Morrison says he nevcr was any thing else tian a Democrat Was the letter he wrote to Batliff Boon in 1831 0r T in favor of the U. S. Bank, Democratic? Was his course in the Senate in 1933-134, in favor of the State Bank, Democratic! Did his votes on that question against every propo sition to secure the rights of the people against the worst features of the system, many of which proposi tions were introduced by Gov. Whitcomb did they appear Democratic! Let those editors he begs to en dorse his Democracy refer to the Senate Journal of 1S33-4. After laboring with all his might to establish the State Bank with all its odious Whig features was dodging the final vote on the question, Democratic! When a member of the House in 1837-, did A. F. ! Morrison not sign himself a Conservative! Was he not denounced by Hon. Thomas J. Henley as a Whig! Did not Morrison in return assail Henley as a '0 cofoco" and an "Agrarian"! Was not a resolution offered calling on him to de fine his position, and say whether he was a Whig or Federalist! Did his acts as Canal Commissioner, when he made unauthorized letting to the amount of upwards of s90,lR)0, argue Democracy! When the law defining the duties of Canal Com missioners, forbade them to take contracts on the pub lic works, was it Democratic for ?Iorrison to evade ihn bivv bv tnl-inrr contracts in the name of Irish la- , . , " , r . ,;:,,- kJKJk Vl ..w t - ------ - - - - - - 2 - - purposes! In lT-1?, when a reSolution was offered in the House, "That the Fund Commissioners be instructed 44 to negotiate no loan hereafter in any other curren cy than gold and silver;" "And, also, to make no depositcs of any money hereafter, in any other than " solvent specie paying banks," and it was moved to lay s.iid motion on the table, or in other words, kill it, did not A. F. Morrison vote in the affirmative thus leaving the Commissioners to complete their beautiful Gallipolis and Soap Factory transactions, whereby the State has lost million! Was this De mocracy! Ay, Morrison's Democracy. (Sec II. Jour., p. 5T.) When a bill to suppress gambling was on its pas- !

Judnh moved "to take up the bill to confirm the State Hank of Indiana and its' franchises" that is, when the Dank had forfeited its charter by suspending specie payments Morrison was found al ways voting wiih tho Wihos, in favor of protecting and re-chitrtcring that institution or in other words allowing dishonest bankers and speculators to be ahme the hue, and to violate it with impunity for their J own special benefit. (Öce II. J. p. 093 et seq. This, als0' is Morrison's Democracy. When this fraud on tho public was accomplished, anJ Mr- Vandcvccr moved that the Bank should re- ! lc,c,n ils flte iloUnr noles m pPccIc cvcn if to rc" pudiate all others, Morrison is found voting witli the Whigs against even that small relief to the people, preferring at all times rather to uphold these swindling transactions, than to force the Hanks to b6 honest. (II. J. p. 001 et seq.) Truly this is Morrisoii De mocracy -from his boyhood!!! When Milton Stapp (II. J. p. 017,) moved that whenever hereafter tlie llink should suspend specie payments, (the Banks had not resumed, mind,) the Legislature might declare the charter forfeited; and Judah moved to amend, that said Bank should not re ceive any amount from any Hanking Company less than fifty dollars, except at its full par value; and when Mr. Furgason moved td amend, to divorce the Slate Hank and Branches from all connection with the Internal Improvement policy, not within its sphere, you will find Morrison voting with the Whigs in ev ery phase the question assumed, or else dodging the vote. His whole coarse shöws him to be decidedly in favor cf all kinds of swindling Banks. This much at present for No. 1; but as there needs buf s?rnihtf answers to most of his other modest claims, wc will devote but a short time to them. The lid, is where he claims to have always voted for Democrats. If his definition of Democracy be that of the Whig party, he may be correct: The Whigs have attempted to steal the Democratic name; but they have not as yet succeeded; neither will Morri- (son. His hyjKjcriy is too apparent. That he hifs always voted for the regulär Democratic candidates, no one who knows him will for one minute believe. But his vote is his own property, and we only find fault, not with his casting it as suits himself, but for attempting to make others believe that he cast it dif- ferently from what he did. 3d. Every one knows how Morrison labored to elect himself, by taking all sides of the questions agitated, especially when he was last a candidate for the State Senate. That he ever labored for others, we must have further evidence than his own say so, before we believe one word of it, excepting, perhaps, he consi ders labor the fifty cents he reluctantly gave to help to purchase powder last year, and perhaps a trifle more when he was made the big gun at the barbecue, and expected to have his laborious services on that occa sion freshly fenicrhbered, when the time came. 4th. Morrison brags about receiving n larger vote than his party when a candidate. Rather a suspi cious circumstance. Until we drew the cloaks from the hypocrites for the purpose of giving the people fair play the Junto could play any game which suited them. In connection with the plotting and scheming Whigs, therefore, the Junto, by bargaining, could al wavs "innate their cards, and elect their own tools. The State has suffered some in consequence, as the honest of all parties well know. Oth. He boasts of his services in the Legislature. We .have made a few short references to them; and whether he has "forfeited the confidence" of the peo ple by his acts or not, the result of his last canvass as candidate for Senator is an index. If he is not sat isfied with that he had better trv it again, lie have not a doubt but our whole ticket was that year defeat ed in consequence of attempting to carry the load of Morrison. Of this matter, we may be more particu lar hereafter. Gth. Morrison pays he never deceived a friend in any situation in life, &c. This is such a broad state ment, that we shall omit a notice of it for the present, being desirous of noticing it more particularly herea ter. We would only ask if Mr. Sp-ld-g, of Ohio, was a friend or an enemy! We may find occasion to make some curious developments on this subject, should circumstances force us to it. 7th. He says, "his political course has always been candid and open, concealment being no pari of his character, lie may take our bcot3 after that! 6th. He intends to defend himself, he says, to the last extremity. That is all very proper. Even a skunk will do that. But there is a vast difference between defence and attack. If he is the Democrat he professes to be, he would attack the common ene my, and not be doing all he can to sow the seeds of dis cord among the Democracy, for no other purpose what ever, than to further his selfish ends. We should sup pose that even he had lived long enough to learn that "honesty is the best policy." At all events, he will find that the best course to pursue hereafter; and if he is not too firmly Wedded to political gambling, he should adopt it at once. He will never succeed in any other course, however he may have prospered by it in times by-gone. Political gambling, like all other gambling, has nearly reached its acme; and as sure as day succeeds night, so sure will it fall. The eyes of the people arc being opened on all sides, and all attempts hereafter to play such games will most signally be detected, exposed and rebuked. Wlio is the Ofllco Secker T Morrison charges that we have been applicants for some four or five offices. This, in part, is trie. After sixteen years service in the Democratic cause, we did nnt know that it was a crime to dd so. But to the facts. One of us was an applicant for the State Printing, and got it, after he, Morrison, tried every game to chisel us out of it. The other has been a candidate for the Post Office, and he was so boldly and fairly. In one of our little corporation elections, also, he suffered his name to be used as a candidate for Coun- rilman. Awful ofiice-Seekin?. that ! Some talk was , also made once about our running for the Senate; but 'ti, ket in thir3 county, by a majority probably of more c r, . i ,i r than 300. I lie precise ir.aorit we are however un wc should like to know if a sohtarv soul in the dis- . . . . ; , J . , ' "u 1 1 . nhl to stntp. not liavintr ns vpt rnreivcvl t in ntnm . , 11. met ever heard us announce ourselves as a candidate for that othee. vv e may nave aiso ouen remarKcu mai we liuenueu one of these days to run as a candidate for Fresidcnt of the Unite.i States ; and wc are only waiting now to sec whether the good people of the U. S. would like the Old Cock to be thus honored. Were we once there, we would make sad havoc among some politi- ciaus, sure. But with what grace comes such a charge from one who has held office always when he could get it, and has been a standing applicant for sometimes half a dozen at a time ! Let us look back a moment. .Morrison first came here a Representative from Clark county ; and a certain set of bastard politicians took such a fancy "to him, that he never went back; Since then he has held, or been an applicant for, the following offices. We don't set them down in regular order, nor do we remember whether we have got the whole. We just state them from memory. He was elected Senator ; appointtd by Gov. Wallace, Whig, a member of the Roard of Internal Improvements, where he spent upwards of 90,000 more than he was allowed to do by law ; and it is said, he employed men to get him contracts in their nr"ncs which he was not allowed to do hy law; then llcprcpcntative ; then State Printer; candidate for Congress against the ; lamented Kinnard ; candidate for Congress against i . . W. J. Brown; at which time he kicked up a very pretty fuss and cursed all hands ; candidate for State Senate ; candidate for Auditor of State, Treasurer of State, and for State Printer again, all at once ! candidate for Congress again ; sec his letter to the committee; candidate for the Tot Ofiice; was Assistant Secretary of the Senate ; candidate for Principal Secretary of the same body; candidate for Kcsristcr of Land Oifjce, which Mr. Van Buren refused to give him, and for which Morrison has not forgiven him ; had previously been a candidate for Tost Office against Capt. Cain ; Commissioner of an Indian Treaty ; Commissioner among the Indians, commonly known as the Blanket Treaty ; and we don't know how many others. Is not Mr. Morrison a very modest man ! Ixrd help the poor people, if he is longer to ride them vith boot and spur ! Dictation. The Junto generally, and Morrison's Democrat, their organ, say that we 44 dictate," and nothing pleases us, unless under our 44 dictation." So fur as they are concerned, wc intend to 44 dictate." If show ing them up in their true colors convinces the people that they are not what they profess, be dictation, we plead guilty. But when our cotcmporarics of the press, or any one of the people, make the charge, we shall examine the ground. It is only dictating to the Junto, that we are determined to let the people select their own servants, with their own free will and choice, of which they complain; Can't they get up a more reasonable charge--one that tho whole people do not Anew to be false 1 Florida Election. The Indiana Journal, and its coadjutor, the Morri son Democrat, have each announced that Cabell, the Whig candidate, as elected to Congress from tiie State of Florida. This attempt at crowing, no doubt equal ly satisfactory to both, proves to have been just before they got out of the tcoals. We have the pleasure to announce to our readers, that Mr. Urockenbrovgh, the Democratic candidate, is elected by a handsome ' maiofitv.' May all coons and skunks make just such crows as the Journal and Morrison's Democrat.

But alas ! they have been sadly disappointed.

I has resulted a great, glorious, and we believe, a per- manent victory a victory without a parallel ! It would be well for the Democratic party everywhere to purge itself of these unclean beasts ; making them an example which shall be a warning to all succeeding generations.

Let us purge our ranks of all traitors, cowards, camp-followers for plunder, and all who are not for the CAUSE from motives of Patriotism. Imi tate our New York brethren, and all will be safe. From the Xew York Globe. New York City Always in the Van! Democracy Victorious Nativism and 'Whig- gery Exterminated. The Administration of James K. Polk sustained Texas and Oregon determined up'ont-European Interference in American Affairs Emphatically Repudiated The City Carried by near 30(10 Majority. The election closed last evening. Its result is a brilliant triumph of the New York Democracy. The Senator, the Register and the thirteen members of the Legislature are elected by an unexpected and triumphant majority. Whiggery and Nativism are put to route. The noble policy of President Polk as reflected in his inaugural is sustained in a quiet election by an overwhelming majority of the votes polled. His foreign policy is sustained by the most decisive majority, and that majority is given by the people of the great Commercial Emporium of the Western Continent. We feel proud of our city. Where has there been a crisis where her sturdv De mocracy have not come off victors ! When ha"s she failed not only to originate eat measures, but to use her Herculean arm in their consummation ! We have no time tq say more, and give the majorities in the different Wards : In a smaller vote than usually given the democratic ! majority will probably be near three thousand. Had the democrats polleu their full vote, as they ought to have done, it would no doubt be several thousands larger.

He fur ther states, however, that those Indians will not be removed till next spring, and suggests the expedien cy of postponing those surveys till the time; but the great anxiety of the people of Indiana to have early action in the case, and the evident importance of it to the interest of that State, have determined iwv iu im t c l liu iuiiiu .uivvv wo own " j gaily b2 done.
