JtiMcma State Sentinel. simi3-wj:i:kly. ETru vir.in.xcr is the price of i.ibf.rty. Oregon. We find the folio-, ving spirited article in the Wash ington Un'.on of Nov. G. It will be most heartily responded to by the People of Indiana. We say the People, and we use the words in their weightiest signification. Few even of the Whig party, we believe, will oppose a prompt and energetic assertion of American rights in Oregon and an immediate exer cie of the power justly predicated on those rights. The opinion is expressed by some of the Eastern papers, that England will not admit the justice of our claims, and will forcibly resist any attempt on the part of the U. S. Government to extend its sway over the territory. We do not believe any thing of this kind. England will no doubt dispute our claims; and will endeavor by bluster to deter our Government from any efficient action. She will of course reiterate her own pretensions to the territory, and assert their superiority over our own. She will threaten worse even than she did about Texas. Nevertheless, we d not believe tint she will dare to strike. Put suppose that she sh ould 1 An embargo upon the exportation of cotton irou'tl bring her to trms in less than six vecks. We have a negative weapon in this, iniin tely stronger than any positive one she can bring to bear against us ; one that she would not dare to encounter, and could not withstand. Would the South object to such an embargo ! Then let our Government buy the cotton of the planters, and if nothing better could be done, bum it ! It is also said by some that Oregon will be of no profit to us ! We do not want it for the sake of profit, but for the sake of principle. No Europein power, no monarchical power whatever should be permitted to have the slightest permanent foothold upon any portion justly claimed by us. This is the feeling of the people of the West, as well as of ourselves. And though we abhor war as an abstract picstiou, and to avoid its evils would resort to almost any honorable expedient, yet, if its absence is to be purchased at the expense of principle, or of the great republican policy which ought exclusively to obtain in yorth America, then i.f.t it come, and nnv God assist the right !

In our juJgrnent, it is full time that this state of things chou!d cease. We believe that Congress will so decree. On the sul jert of the rumored proposition, to which we have alluded, we quote with pleasure the fol lowing just sentiments from the French j urnal in r'ew York, the Courrier des Etats Unis." 1 hey aie entit'ed tu the more consideration, as the sentiments of a compa ratively disinterested third parly. "Let not the Americane," ny the Courrier, be de reived. All that England wishes, all that she aims at in presenting this proposition, is to train time. Of what interest to her is a sojourn of a few ya'-s in Oregon ? What she desires is a permanent position on the Pacific shore .d" the American continent. We may rest assured that she will not risk the chances of this hazardous propo sition, unless he count- on tho new elements which the lapse of twenty years cannot fail to bring into question, and, if need re, on the weight of her gold scattered In hamlsfuU in Oregon, to iudine in her J'ax'or the. doubtful balance of deciiion, when the hour uf decision shall -innd." How much these considerations are emphasised by the presence and agenry iu that region of the great corporate orgmizition to which we have alluded, is but too man fct.

Ard now we üay.Oüce for a!!, that wc know of no evi dence whatever that any uch proposition has been, or will be, submitted by the British (Jovernment. Meantime, the question must come up in the next Congress, ' What shall we do in relation to our citizen in Oregon !"

Once in a while an able arti cle has appeared in their columns, but we happen to know the exact paternity of most of them. We shill ne ver strive to rival them iu their well established reputa tion as blacken mis, but w.j may be forced to use a caute ry upon them which will make them think the feathers are loose. We wish it to be understood, that we do not consider the Sentinel or the Chapman the democratic party ofthe State ; and if they bad treated us in a gentle manly way, we should h ive observed more courtesy iu speaking of thitn. We speak but the truth." Our subscription book3 will make manifest the "daring falsehood" of the first sentence of this tirade of the Hank President. Nor is the evidence of the falsehood confined to those books. On every hand in this community are wo receiving the congratulations of honest men, who rejoice that knavery and audaci ty, though it has ensconced itself under the garb of de mocracy, in high places, is at length assisting to strip and exhibit its leprous carcass to public indignation up-jn a pillory of its own erection. As to the ascenda nev of jacobinism and venalitv, which it said will occur, when certain things are done bv u, but ht!le fear need be entertained. If we had been disposed to keep "democracy down at the heel," where it for years remained under the venal sway of the "Morrison family," we should long ago, when bribes instead of threats were the inducements thev displayed, have done the evil which they now falsely impute to us. Ludicrously does the wrath nn 1 excessive egotism of the Judge stick out in the questions as to "what decent, respectable citizen uouht, as a citizen, be willing to be compared with us;" and ns to the .,,,.,.

And then agair?, if wc should attempt to canvass any important subject of policy, for instance, like that of tha distribution of the proceeds of the public lands, especially if we aspired to have a direct vote in the settlement of so important a subject of policy, we should certainly despise ourselves as much as the inelfibly proud, hauglr.y, and arrogant President of the State Lank can despise us, if compelled to con fess before the people, as he had to do, that he had not even investigated the merits of the subject. 440ncc in a while,' the Judge admits, "an able ar ticle has appeared in our columns," but he pretends to know the exact paternity of most of them." This slander is as cunningly c. pressed as it is mean and ignoble in conception. We have only to say, that one thing is certain ; none of tho "able articles" w hich have appeared in our paper were written by any of the Morrisons. All who know their inordinate self ishness, if even their ability be admitted, will agree that they would never w rite a line or lift a finger in the cause of the Democratic party, except with an eye solely directed to their own immediate personal benefit. The Judge pretends, however, to know who did write the most of them. If he desires to escape the charge of detraction, let him name the arti cles and the authors thereof. We arc perfectly wil ling that the public should know all that he knows about it. If he fails to do this, let him read his own malignant effusion over again, and take its coarse rc vilings back to himself. As to A. F. Morrison, who adopts the slanrlerous imputations as his own, we hate only to say that we shall at any time be proud to submit the volumes of the State öentinei to the test of a comparison with those of the Indiana Democrat, while the Liter was under his control as editor, to such judges as he him self may select provided, nevertheless, that the Junto he not "included, for in their estimation every manifestation of honesty in politic? is regarileTaVa u caJ)ies and a reproatii- Otic of Morrison's Llrs A ailed. The two first articles in No. 1. of Morrison's pi ratical paper, are filled with the grossest fule hoods in relation to the pretended causes which have J induced him to resuscitate the "Ind.ana Democrat," . for the purpose of endeavoring to put down the "In diana State Sentinel.' It has been a debate-able matter in our minds whe- ther or not it would be necessary or proper for the ! I , ... . . e , r ,. . . . 8ake of exposing lus mendacity, or of defend.nj our- ' sches, for us to notice and refute his falsehoods. We i,-vo horn half inrlinnl to hrlicvn that our ed torinl ieast to majie it unnecessarv that we should say any thing as to the motives by which we have been intlu enccd, and which Morrison and the Old Junto would now fain attempt to impeach. "We have been inclin ed lo think that if our humble labors have resulted not unfavorably to the true interests of our party, we could safely trust l!.e party itself to pass judgment upon tl. ose motives, without saying a word against the slanderous imputations of the Junto or their Tool. Lut before we had fully decided this point in cur own minds, we received from an individual whom the Junto will not dare to impeach, a denial of one of the baet of .Morrison's base imputations. It comes to us in the shape of a manuscript copy of a letter ad dressed to the Editor of the "Democrat," for publica tion in that paper. Its author is D. R. Eckels, Esq., of Putnam county. A copy was sent to us, wc sup pose, for fear that Merriron would not have the hon esty to give it to the public, and thus add to the evi dence of his own infamy. The statements made by Morrison, which Mr. Eck els objects to and denies, are to the ciFect that the Cass men in the Legislature of IS 13 4, attempted lo defeat our election as State Printers, and elect Mr. Eckels, in consequence of previous unfair conduct on our part towards them. Now to our own knowledge, Mr. Eckels is right, so far as the friends of General (.'ass, m the legislature, were concerned ; for among ihe Cass members, we numbered some of our warm personal friends, l'ut even if it were not so, and that Morrison stated tho truth : his statement would be just as infamous, if true as if it were fuNe. The purpose of it will make this manifest. Morrison's dv-bts of the ' Democrat" to the amount of ight hun chitf object in making this statement, was to endea- dnd dollars for the privilege, as Morrison now has vor to engender feelings of dittr ust towards us in the ; it, of working in our vocation.

It would be indeed laughable, if indignant feelings were not excited by his tm'Tratcful course towards the Democratic party, " J to hear Morrison taunt others with rnerccnanuess.

Pep per, together with some comments upon it, was exclu ded from our columns this week, in order to accomo date Judge Peaslee.- The communication of the latter is such a leautiful specimen of belles-lettres, that w e arc sure the Colonel will forgive us the delay in ac commodating him.

We publish in another column a communication from Win. J. Peaslce. Though its coarseness and vulgarity does not surprise us, we are sure that some of our readers, who have not been able to justly appreciate Mr. Peaslee will be surprised epcviilly when they reflect that a person of so little self-respect, to say nothing of good breeding, is the incum bent of the honorable ollicc of President Judje of the 5'tli Judicial Circuit of Indiana. It is one of the e ils of partyism, however, for which it will be ditlieult peihap', soon to find a remedy, that base men, through its influence are sometimes placed in stations which they are only capable of disgracing. Notwithstand ing the tender of our columns of which he speaks in the beginning of his communication, and which, bv the way is the only respectable part of it we should have been justified, perhaps, in refusing to defile our columns with Mr. Teaslee's despumation, by virtue of the standing rule of all editors, which demands the observance in some degree of the rules ef common decency and civility. But in addition to the dispo sition to estop him from a resort to the clap-trap cry of a refusal to hear him in his own defence, did we refuse to give place to his wordy conglom eration of impotent wrath, we desire to let our readers see, by testimony under his own hand, how exactly and justly we dccribed him when we said of him in chapter X. of the Mysteries: "Though a Judge, so far as learning goes, either in law or literature, he is not above mediocrity: his tal ents are on a par with his acquirements, and would not De more man sumciem ior a louriu rate country editor." Tiiis is the harshest thing we have said of Peaslee ; and it was said, not maliciously, but merely to de scribe him truly and justly. His own communication will satisfv everv intelligent reader of the truth of our estimation of the man, and substantiate most ful ly tints much of the articles of which he complains. We do not see that Mr. P's communication, lengthv ' O ml as it is, calls for any further comment from us. He ; except by moonlight, assisted by a lantern, commenc pleads Not Guilty, to statements we have made in , ing jtist before the moon crosses the meridian.

The People's Press, a whig paper published at Craw- fordsville, has the following relative to the election of a United States Senator : . Our advice would be, that, in order to retaliate up on the Locos for their rascality in refusing to go into an election last winter, that the Vhis if they can- not prevent tho selection of a Loco foco in any other fair w ay resign their seats, and return to their re spective homes. We need not utter one word of comment on such a revolutionary, if not scoundrelly, sentiment as the above. It must meet with a withering rebuke from the honest of all parties. But we des.ire to ask if a mation has been received that, by a resolution cf the Senator had been elected last year, if he would not I German Diet at Frankfort, all newspapers or periodi havc held or taken his seat in direct violation of the j cals in the German langu ige, printed in the United Constitution of the United States, the Supreme Law j States of America, are prohibited in the German con of the land ! Will lie do it ? Judge Teaslce informed the pcojde some months since, that he intended to rcsigii his seat on the bench on account of his health. Why don't he do so! Or was it all gammon, for effect I Mark this. He will not resign until he gets a chance for a better office ; and we don't believe he ever intended to do so. It j would be gratifying to many, and some think, it would j further the ends of justice, if he would perform his promises. Xew Jersey.

The whig papers generally are down like a thousand of brick on their redoubtable old leader Solon Robinson, for writing to the Tribune that the Iloosiers are a set of scoundrels and don't intend to p j their debts. Serves the old corner ri;fht. The 3Ioney Ulggcts. Our town has undergone no little excitement of late, in the way of a revival in Money Digging. The parties concerned are all of the highest respectability. and had, no doubt, what they considered the strongest evidences that trrasure, gold and 7rrrt had been buried or deposited, in certain places in town, and that they had a certain clue to the same. That their eflrts were praiseworthy, in sa d treasure, few will deny. They went at it like men; and no doubt iir.cn cd, shculd they be success ful, to have hunted up the true owner, and made his, and the hearts of his family, glad w.th joy. We are enabled to state a few cf the particulars, and shall endeavor to show why they were not suc cessful. .A letter was received by Mr. M., stating that a prison convict had made known to the writer the fact of his having buried said treasure, describing the locality to a hair, and requesting said writer to obtain it for him. Just before meridian on Thursday last, Mr. M. gets his hoe and commences. A hoe is a bad thinir to dig with ; therefore he calls on Mr. W. te ebtain a spade, and invites him along. There they are all Mr. 31., -Air. Y., Mr. G. and .Mr. W., the latter rather suspecting a trick. In dives the digger ; through shucks and all, until he was knee deep. No treasure appeared. Said Mr. W., did you observe whether the postage on that letter was paid Alas ! the hoe and spade were dropped, and our friend retired to dinner. Mr. N. arrives ; is made acquainted with the ope rations, and at it he goes, till the dangerous appear ance of the dilapidated walls, the high embankment on either side which his energetic exertions had reared like young pyramids, warned him to desist. The earth was levelled; and until Mr. G. gets his divining rod ready, no further operations will progress. Now, do not these gentlemen know trÄy they failed 1 Wc will give them a reason or two. In the first place, money should never be dug for, 11. you must be sure that nobody has taken it away before you had a chance. Again ; Why they were not suc cessful, wc believe to be, that no money was there. Put there is one great consolation in this affair.

A call is made in the Martinsville Journal for a meeting of thr? citizens of Morgan Countv, on Satur day, Nov. 22, at the Martinsville Court House, to take measures to secure the completion of the Central Ca nal from the ElufTs to Martinsville. The successful accomplishment of the work contemplated w ould be of much benefit to the people in the region cf Morgan county, and we should witness it with a great deal of pleasure.

Morrison admits that he was a Conservative in 1S37-8 ; but says he was a Van Uuren conservative. Van Buren will certainly smile when he sees tms- This is about equal to "Democratic Whig." It is in truth what Morrison has always been. As we ExrEcicn. The Indiana Journal and the Louisville Journal both endorse Morrison's democra cy. We expected they would do so.
