To the Editors of the Indiana Slate Sentinel:
Gentlemen: Judging from the tenor of some re
marks in your paper of to-day, relative to the voting
rf s"fi;e of our Pupils at the l'r!idiilin I election on
'i u .-day last, it would seem tint you labor under iin
rrror as to the fact of any influence being exerted
over them by individual connected with the Institute;
and I beg leave therefore to call your attention to the
following statements, which may be relied upon in
every particular, viz:
1. In the By-laws adapted by the Board of Trus
tees for the government of the Institute, then? is a
regulation prohibiting any otficer connected therewith
from endeavoring to bias the minds of the pupi s
against or in favor of cither of the political parties.
2. So rigidlv is this regulation observed that I can
unhesitatingly assert that no pupil has ever beard the
utterance of a political opinion from my lip.-, and I
urn Confident that the same may be .said of everv
other ttacher in the Institute; nor had we, up to the
moment of the polling of their votes, heard them ex
press any sentiment from whih we could infer their
political views or predilections.
2. It is my candid opinion that the Steward of the
Institute is also innocent of having endeavored to
exert nuv political influence over them.
I. The circumstances connected with the voting of;
the scholars on Tuesday are briefly as follows :
Four young men, the only male adults in the school,
name to me in the morning to ask leave of absence
fur the purpose of attending the election, and there
appearing to be r.o impropriety in the request, leave
was granted thern to do so. But on learning subse
quently that some doubts were entertained as to their
being residents of the county, I called on a member
of the B-ard of Trustees (Mr. J. 31. Kay,) for coun
sel, and he advised tiiat they should not go to the
polls, lest under the circumstances their doing so
might prejudice the interests of the Institute. I ac
cordingly retumrd homo and explained the matter to
the young men, expressing a wish that they fdiould
not attend the election. Tliey insisted, however, up
on going, and I told them if they did fo, it must be
upon their own responsibility and contrary to my
The young men went to the polls ; but by whom
conducted thither, or by whom furnished with tickets
was not known, I believe, to a single member of our
household; nor hid any one a hand in it either di
rectly or indirectly, so far as my knowledge extends.
I might h ive restrained them but did not conceive
that I had a right to debar them from the exercise of j
a privilege winch was guaranteed to them uy ttie
Constitution in common with all other citizens of the
State. As to the iegality or illegality of their voting
in this county, it was for the judges of the election
and not for me to decide.
The above is, gentlemen, I can assure you, an un
varnished statement of facts, which it is hoped you
will have the kindness to insert in the next number
of your paper.
S;gned, W. II. CHURCHMAN.
Acting Principal of the Institute.
CO" In our paragraph relative to the voting of the
pupils of the Blind Asylum, we added the remark,
that 44 we should next see the patients of the Insane
Asylum lugged up to vote, and perhaps the Deaf and
Dumb, also." We did not mean to intimate by this
that the Deaf and Dumb pupils had voted, as some
appear to suppose. We are quite sure that Messrs.
Brown ai.d Willard, the gentlemanly principals of
that institution, would not encourage their pupils to
vote n either side, especially if they had any doubt
about their legal right to do so. They have sense
enough to know, if thy did vote, no matter on which j
side, they would be likely to otfend the other. j
It is denied that even the students in our colleges j
have any right to vote elsewhere than in the town-!
ships of their homes, for by the term residence the ,
law means a man's permanent home, without doubt. !
The Crawfordville Review complains about the vo
tin of the students of Wabash College, on this ac
count ; and it says i
44 We understand that the students of Grcencostle j
College wrote to Judge McDonald of Bloom; ngton, !
one of the ablest lawyers in the State, asking his j
opinion as to whether tney were entitled to cast their I
votes at Urcencastlc. ihe Judge informed them that
they hid no right whatever eo to do; and advised
them in order to keep out of difficulty, to return to
the counties from whence they came, if they wished
to vote. We are informed they took the Judge's ad
vice and did pot attempt to vote at Greencastle."
The spirit of whiggery is exemplified by the young
gentlemen of the Wabash College, and the spirit of
democracy by those of Greencastle. The one set vote
in spite of the law; the others try to learn its true
intent, and to obey its requirements. The Wabash
was a beggar before the legislature, two or three
years ago, and after a good deal of wheedling and
Eni'TIing fobbed some thousands of the people's mon
ey. Greencastle gets along by her own merits and
industry, and d es not besiege the legislature with
begging petitions. There are two kinds of whig
gery, represented by the beggar and by the aristocrat ;
Wabash is a hybrid, par'aking of the qualities of
both. There is but one kind of democracy, repre
sented by an honest, self-relying man. Greencastle
need not be ashamed of him, nor he of her.
If, theref rc, the college students are not entitled
to vote Mider the law, and so the lawyers t-ay, cer
tainly the blind, or any other pupils, whose perma
nent residence is not here, have no legal right to vote
at our polls.
fj7-The later reports by Telegraph begin to show
that though the whigs have achieved a victory, it is
nut an ultra victory !
Detroit City, wc are informed by letter, gave
Cas 151 majority! This don't correspond with the
Tell-lie-graph, by a long shot.

"IVo Enemies to I'linish.''
Gen. Lane has now gone to Oregon as Governor of
that territory. The office whs lire reward of his vile
slanders ngainst his commanding general. We I rust
that, if General Taylor is elected to the Presidency,
Gen. Lane will bo promptly dismissed from his Gov
ernorship. We do not desire to see nny political
proscription, but we would have Gen. Line disrr.is. rd
for the reason that he has shown himself tin unprin
cipled calumniator. ha;isviile Journal.
The 44 vile slanders of Gen. Lane towards his com
manding general," were facts and arguments used
by him iu defence of the honor of the Indiana Vol
unteers, whic h General Taylor had wronged and pr
sistcd in wronging. The State of Indiana has spoken
upon that subject ywir, nnd has abundantly vindicated
her gallant volunteers and glorious leader, Gen. Jo.
Lane, the 44 Marion of the army." lie needs no de
fence from u. The point to which we direct atten
tion is this that even before the election result is
certainly known, the rampant spirit of proscription
is displayed, and that, too, in respect to a man whose
blood flowed at Buena Vista, and who rendered such
service on the; Vera Cruz line, as to draw forth the
marked encomiums of Gen. Scott. Undoubtedly we
shall have the proscription of 1810 over again, and
it is fitting and proper it should commence with Gen.
Joseph Lane. Cin. Zwty.
We thank the Enquirer for thus repelling the infa
mous imputation of that basest of papers, the Louis
We care nothing about the proposed removal of
Gen. Lane. It cannot injure him in the least. Rut
if it be done, let the true reasons of it be proclaimed
and not fahu ones. Taylor hates Lane, and was
jealous of him, and slandered our volunteers, because
of that jealousy and hatred. He hates Lane because,
instead of ibcamping from the Bittb'.fiold of JJucui
Vista to Saltillo, as Taylor did. Lane stood his ground
and fought more bravely and efficiently than any
other general on that bloody ground. That's the true
reason of Taylor's past course, and will be the real
reason of Lane's dismissal from the office he now
Our Journal copies the f dlowing additional para
graph from the Louis-villain :
Interesting to Gen. Lane. It is a gratifying
fact that General Lane's own town in Indiana, which
hitherto has always been a decided Locofoco town,
did not on Tuesday give a majority of even one soli
tary vote against Gen. Taylor. The vote of the town
was an exact tie. This shows how the infamous
slanders against General Tavlor are regarded at the
residence of Iiis chief slanderer." Ijouisville Journal.
Our Journal knows tint this statement is u.? It
refers to Evansville, near which Gen. Lane lived. It
has always been a whig instead of a democratic town;
but even when it was strongest whig, General Lane
could always carry it when a candidate. Our Journal
should be asliHtntd of such infamous slanders, and do
any thVg but copy them.
Let them dismiss Lane, 1 they dare! The people
of Indiana will know how to take care of himt the
bravest, most generous, noblest citizen they can
claim; and will know equally well how to detest and
punish the envious traitors who assail and attempt to
The Great West.
There is one feature in the returns along the At
lantic seaboard that is not agreeable to a western
man's feelings. The vole there looks like a vote
against thf t. Well, if such is the fact, the
west is fully able to feed herself, clothe herself, and
do her own voting. The west can set up as good a
standard of rijjlit as any other part of the Union, if
it becomes necessary to do so. Ohio Statesman.
This is more than a squinting in favor of sectional
feelings. If the "Atlantic seaboard" had gone for
Cass, instead of Taylor, hail gone for a Northern
man with Southoiu feelings, instead of a national
man with national principles, all would have been
well in Ihe opinion of the Statesman. These ex
pressions, wc lru?t, betray more the pctuhancy of the
Statesman, at defeat, than its sober .sentiment. ('in.
COThe Ohio Statesman broaches an ida upon
which wc have reflected f)r some time, nnd only
awaited a fitting time to announce. It has the ad
vantage of us in beinir the first to make the motion ;
but we will be the first to ?omd it, nnd will do all in
our power to carry it into effect. The Chronicle
takes alarm at the idea, and intimates its fears about
stctional feelings. Il has not been able to imbibe the
entire idea of the Statesman, if we correctly appre
hend it, and if it corresponds with our own. Wc
only desire that Ihe Great West should assume the
position of Manhood in the Confederacy, to which
she is justly entitled by her political, nnd moral, and
physical strength. We contemplate nothing but a
liberal platform, which, while it will unite the West,
and give efficiency to her great strength, will inflict
no sectional injustice. We told Eastern and South
ern politicians, at the last Baltimore Convention, that
a time would come for a movement of this kind, and
it his come, as soon as wc expected it would. We
shall have something more to say upon this subject
The valuable tract of land, known as the Miami
Reserve in Indiana, is selling oil" with great rapidity.
This is partly in consequence of the fine quality of
tlie soil, t;mber, and other advantages, but mostly in
consequence of the location of the Bern and Indiana
polis Railroad, now under contract from this city to
NobUsviile, which passes directly through the centre
of the Reserve, both Tipton ami Kokomo being
p int; nnd also, the near approach of the Indianap
olis and Bellefuutaine Railr ad to the eastern part of
the Re-erve, a part of which road, commencing at
Indianapolis, is also under contract. The Miami In
dians, for many years, held on to these lands, as with
a dying grasp, and until the balance of the country
had been sold out and settled all around them. They
are now sold at two dollars per acre, and persons
wishing locations in Ihe most thickly Fettled portion
of Indiana, as the Reserve is kooh destined to be,
would do well to turn their attention to this quarter.
But very little of the Reserve has been sold upon
speculation; and the pre-emption lav , under which a
largo portion of the Reserve was sold to actual set
tlers, makes a large part of it na already thickly set
tled country. The largest bodies of vacant lands are
the nearest to the two Railroad routes above men
tioned. We are informed by the Receiver of Public Mon
eys at this place that the sales of Lnds for the present
month have averaged nearly a thousand dollars per
day. At this rate the Reservo will soon be sold.
Indiana. Wc have returns enough to show that
the gallant Iloosicr State has vetoed her slanderer, by
an increased majority over the last Presidential elec
tion. What that majority will he, in figures, we arc
nable ns yet to determine. That it equals our ex
pectations ; and that wo have not disappointed our
friends abroad, as certain old grand ma'ams in other
sections have done ; is joy to us, and will be grateful
to our substantial democracy in this State. We know
h w to crow when occasion requires; but wc never
crow till wc are out of the wood, nor do we whistle
when passing a grave yard. Our friends shall all
have the true returns as fast as wc can get them.
False ones we will not send.
Whig Decency. We understand that a number of
44 respectable " whigs, in their great joy at the tele
graph returns a few nights ago, actually hurntd a lite
rooster upon one of their bonfires in this city. When
d;d the "dirty locofocos" ever burn a live coon ?
Acquitted. John L. Ashby who, with another

The reader will iccolliet that, at ono time, Mr.
Webster represented the expenses of thu Mexican
war as being half a million a day, or 12 million- a
year. Here ue find him representing the specie in
the Bank of Commerce at 5,800,000, when, accord
ing to the latest published official accounts, it was
less than 000,000. And he reprecnts the specie in
the sub-treasury office at New York an having beim
irirreased, in the period of about a month, in the
amount of 1,000,000, when, according to the official
accounts published in the National Intelligencer and

Mr. Webster does not derive his statistics from offi

he depends on the gentry of Wall street ; and for
what relates to manufactures, on the owners of in

just whatever they choose.
Indiana Ins given her vole to Ciss by a larger

Sour Grapes ! eh ! Oh yes! "A regard for ichig
principles fokijids the nomination of Gen. Taylor,"
said this sapient Journal, a few weeks before it was
probably bought. Principles arc set aside; and our
neighbor may be found among the "immortal 19,"
seeking for an office, when each ami everv one made
it his studied effort to convince the people that no one
competent was to be removed from office. "Let the
j Stale go," so that WE get rich, has long been the
practice of the whig party managers. The Journal
reiterates it. What think you, lloosiersl
07" Look out for telegraphic tricks. The New
Orleans Mercury has the following:
44 Extensive arrangements have been in progress to
receive election returns iu this city, for the purpose
of belting, before the intelligence could be generally
known, and nothing was to be left undone which
would ensure Ihe success of the speculation. We
have been assured that the telegraph would be silent
when its information would interfere with the inter
ests of the speculators, and that everything was so
well arranged, no other mode of receiving returns
could equal their agents in speed."
Gr Taylor, wc think, will be a in inority Presi
dent, that is, he will not have a majority of the
people's votes. Perhaps that may have some effect
upon the Administration. It will depend upon the
Cabinet, however, of which Crittenden, the author of
the Allison letter, will probably be the chief.
Suicide. The liockvillu Sentinel notes the death,
by suicide, of Mr. J. 0. McKinncy of Bloomington,
lately at that place. He was found in his room at
the American House, suspended by the neck, quite
dead cause, disappointed love affair.
A mail from Oregon ind California will be con
veyed from Ibis city or Norfolk, about the 10th of
November, by Judge Bryant, lately appointed to the
Supreme Court of Oregon. He will proceed in a

Panama, and there take the U. S. mail steamer for
California and Oregon. A. Y. Sun.
We are authorized to state, that owing to 'cir
curnstanccn," Judge Bryant will nut leave this place,
for Oregon, before the first of December next.

Dear Chapmans : The returns from this county arc
all in, and give Cass a majority of 231, a gain of but one
vote over 1341. Wc anticipated about 300, but there is
a falling off of more than 100 votes, and nearly all from
the democratic party staying at home.

the causes of this shameful ttnn-action. From the
stater,. cut f many respectable citizens who were wit

progro-s of the procession through oor streets, it was
jeered and insulted by cries from individuals of the
opposite party, on the pavement, in violation of the
letter and spirit id the agreement between the two
parties, entered into upon the rjOih October last. It
appears al-o, that ns the centre of the procession was

language ngainst the procession, nnd wavinjr his left

in the procession waved, thrust, or threw a torch in
the direction of the individual on the pavement, but
that no blow wns struck him, nor did any sparks fall

bearing torches advanced upon him from the line of
the procession, the front one of whom was knocked
down by some one on the pavement that the individ

several times into the crowd, and then n treated into
Lilly's house, whither they were pursued ; that sev

of Lilly's house, and fired several times into the pro

were fired by the persons in and about Lilly's, by

were badly wounded; that the crowd then rushed into

It will lie observed by a notice in another place, that
o:i the PJth day of December, IS 13, the grubbing and
bridging of that part of the ranroul from this plac-'
Eastwardly, which lays this .-ide 'f G iceiicrwtio, will
be let to the lowest proposal ; aloi!." building of two
s'one piers at the Walnut frd of 1I rivT. This is
t!io entering v.cd,v Ihe starting point of this gnat
work in this Slate, the importance of which tdiould
secure it the hearty co-operation of Ihn w h-de coun
try. It wili ii seen that propositions to take p:rt
payment in slock will haven preference, ynd we b po
that contractors will be liberal herein. At a late let
ting of this kind, at Lafayette, the same preference
wu'i given ti stock bidders, and from what we have
understood, the contractors bid up exceedingly lib
eral for ntock, to be paid in work, because they knew
the work would p y hands nnely.
This will be tiie case with this work, for those that
know most about such things have the greatest faith,
and if they were able would take the wie de line.
We notice that Illinois is waking up to the impor
tance of this road, and will make every exertion t
have it speedily continued across her boundaries. On
la-t week Mr. McDor.nld, ti c member elect for Fayette
county, visited this place, with tho view of conferring
with the President of this road upon the subject, and
eliciting such facts as might be useful to him in the
Legislature of Illinois Uns winter. He said the sub
ject was prominent in hi Slate, and lie had hopes of
the pa-sage of a charter, n it restricted to sped it
point?, which would give satisfaction, and id.cit at
tention and capital from abroad. lie was through
most of his Eastern counties, and all classes were
olive to tiie subject and interested in the early pas
sage of a liberal charter.
They have sonic hop-; in Illinois, an I arc making
the effort to have a law passed by Congress to aid
them with this and other loads, by th j grant of a
quantity of land from the General Government, and if
they succeed this winter in getting a charter nt home
and the land from Uncle Sun, we shall look for prompt
action herein in that State. This measure was de
feated at Washington last winter, but they intend
trying it ngain, nnd we hope Uo may succeed.
In our own State, since the work is now to be com
menced, we hope every aid will be extended to it, and
to this end, it is hoped that a'l stockholders will be
prompt in the payment of their calls fjr stock, a no
tice of which we have had before the public for some

Gf.nf.it An Ttt'teins. The Corpus Christi Star has
the following remarks on the appointment of this gal
lant veteran to the command of the th military de
partment. The editor kn .ws his man well, and speaks
of him as all d i who have witnessed jjs straightfor
wardness nnd energy in every station be has filled :
4If such be the fact, then indeed will the department
be in luck, for a more just and energetic man cannot
be found in the American army. In a short time this
border country would be as quiet, under his adminis
tration, as an old settled section. He would be just
to Mexicans and Americans. Although it may be a
Hille too fir out to dice one who has rendered the
country such services, still, for the interest of the
frontier, wc should be glad to see him here. With
ihe exception of Bucna Vista, "old Orizava," as they
call him, ha" been in every tight under Taylor and
Scott, nnd in nearly every instance the pioneer nnd
working general. There is no general officer whoen
gaged tho enemy as often, nnd with pride wo say,
not a regiment, cotnpnny, platoon, (lie, or even a sin
gle man of his division ever gave hack one inch toan
enemy. We know this well, for w e f dlowed his vic
torious command from this line to the Grand I laza in
tiie city of Mexico. We reiterate that for the inter
est of tho frontier we wish the gallant soldier and just
citizen may take command ot the bth department."
Tun Gon of Harvest. Speaking of the harvest,
Cist, of Ihe Cincinnati Advertiser, well remarks:
44 The unprecedented harvest of 1 IS ha rendered
supplies of food abundant and cheap beyond previous
example. If ever there was a people called on to
give thanks to the Almighty givci of every good and
perfect gift, that people is ours. When we opened
our store-houses, two years ngo, to feed thu famish
ing Irish, we had the promise, 4 He that giveth to ihe
poor lendeth to the Lord, and that which he giveth
He will repay him ngain.' Never was a 1 an re
turmd with heavier interest than in this case."
HonuiBLF. Mvsn:r.v. According to the Orlcanian,
a barrel was taken lately from the Mississippi river,
supposed to contain w ne or liquor of some descrip

itself to the eyes of the spectators the bodies of two
white persons, covered with lime, with no traces of
the features remaining. It was conjectured that they
were male and female, or perhaps two females; but
Ihe Ion" hair on tho skull of one of the exhumed vie

Mr. Calhoun thinks the change would be productive
of uiiminglcd evil, and tmnifests Ihe deepest solici

very fair one for both parties. The Indians get about
300,000; and, out of this, a specific tutu is set
apart for a manual labor school, a grist mill, black

sundry cd Serials severely reflecting upon the Rev.
