Willard's JVew Albany speech. Every proposition of Willard's proven false. Delivered at Blooimngton July 2l, 18G0. (CONTINUED.) After the passage of the internal improve ment bill, the State being poor, and having to rely solely upon her credit to borrow money to carry on the works provided for in the bill, adopted another system, which both par'ies indorsed without distinction, and that was the selling of the bonds of the State upon credit,and without requiring security. The reason for that was Ibis, the bonds sold mora- readily, and at a better price And another reason why this system became confirmed by all parlies was, that the State in her first sales was very fortunate in re ceiving good, prices and prompt pay at the limes agreed upon, some of her creditors even paying before ; one of the promptest, being the Morris Canal Banking Company, by which the State afterwards suffered more than by any other creditor. So unanimous ly was this system adopted, that is, of the State selling her bonds on credit, without requiring collateral security, that I have not been able to find a single ol-jection raised to it, by either Whig or Democrat, until after the State sustained her losses, then every bo'ly, both Whigs and Demociats were vociferous in their denunciations of the credit system, which they hud previous ly adopted, and which had brought upon the State the losses referred to by the Gov ernor, Then it was, after the credit of tbt State was ruincii, and the people almost crushed with a heavy public debt, that every body commenced denouncing the .rliole internal improvement system, and in 1839, by the united votes of both Whigs and Democrats, the system was abolished. Thus the internal improvement system, in stead of being a Whig measure, as charged by Gov. Willard, was a local one, fastened upon the peonle and then again removed by the votes of Whigs and Democrats. It may be claimed, that as all the fund com missioners who disposed of the bonds were Whigs, therefore the Whig party is resjion sible ; but I am unable to see any force in that argumeut, for this reason : The loss was not brought upon the people by any dishonesty of tin: Whigs then in power, but by reason of the credit system that had been adopted and sanctioned alike by Whigs and Democrats. It was the failure of per sona and corporations to whom our bonds had been sold on credit, that brought the loss upon us, aud not by reason of cither Whig or Democratic policy, but by the cred it system, which was the joint and equal policy of both partie-i, and not the separate policy of either. The Governor, for the purpose of giving further plausibility to his sweeping charge, that the State sustained all her losses in consequence of the acts of the Opposition, points in rather a sneering manner at the Hon. Caleb B. Smith, ns he was once a Whig and now a Republican, and acted as one of the fund commissioners, by referring to unfortunate investments in soap facto ries, thereby reviving an old political and false slander ag.tin.st Mr. Smith, which was originated by his political opponents, for the purpose of drawing the public mind from another highly respectable quarter : while other gentlemen might enrich their own pocket at the expense of the, State, out of water lots, which constituted a part of the soap or candle factory property. If the Governor had just taken the pains to give us the whole truth in reference to the candle or soap factory arrangement, it might have put rather a different phase upon the matter, and might not have looked quite so well for his side of the house. The history of that soap or candle facto ry arrangement is jast this: J. J. Cohene & Bros., who had failed, were largely indebt ed to the State for bonds told them, not by Mr. Smith, but by Mr. Coe, a former fund commissioner, who as such commissiouer, in pursuance of an act of the legislature, went east to save the State her debt if pos sible. He secured all the property he could find belonging to the Cohens, which siuce yielded the Suite a large sum. Among it were some forty or fifty lot in the city of Brooklyn, which is just opposite the city of New York, upon which there was erected a I large candle factory. All of this property was more or less encmaberwl by mortgageb i which the State paid off. The property t which Mr. Coo BecunSI vvaa.tabout all the 1 property that tbe Cohen'd had. -Mr. Smith sanctioned what Mr. Coe did , this was not i creating a debt, but securiue one already made by others, and not by Mr. Smith ; aud j in so doing acted in good lailh. His acts in that matter were afterwards fully aud thor ' ougbly investigated by a committee of tbe ' legislature, composed of both Whigs and Democrats, when be was triumphantly su- tained in all that he bad done, and acquitted ! of all blame. Tbe sequel now fulipvvs. This property was kept by the Stare for j some time, but it happened that one Mi chael G. Bright, who was Agent of State, represented that it was of little value to t he State and worth merely a nominal sum, and j as such agent sold the same for a mere pit j tance. But some time afterwards, by some ! hook or crook, this property became im mensely valuable, and Mr. Bright was its owner and made an independent fortune oat of the sale of it. I am informed from cred- j ! ible authority, that if the State had just held onto the property received by Mr. Smith from the Cohens a few years longer, as Mr. Smith desired should be done, it would have i p tid every dollar of our losses. But no, it j must be sold, to the prejudice of the State, I and for the purpose of enriching Democrat ic officials, while honest men are made to bear the blame and infamy ol the transac tion. SETTLING OF TBE PUBLIC DEBT IN 184.6. There is another matter, connected with our State debt, which Democrats are every where claiming as a Democratic measure. Yet the Governor in his speech says notning about it. I refer to tbe arrangement made with our bondholders, in 184C, by which one-half of the State debt was ad justed. The truth is, that adjustment, like the .nternal improvement system, was not a party measure. I have carefully examined tbe messages of Gov. Whitcomb on that subject, and have not been able to find in a single instance where the Governor commit ted himself in favor of any particular ar rangement. From what examination I have made, I am satisfied that the Hon. Henry Secrest, of Putnam county, is entitled to more credit for that arrangement than any other man. As the chairman of the select committee to whom the propositions from the bondholders were made, in quite a lengthy report to the legislature, he fully and ably discussed tbe whole subject in a bold and fearless, yet statesman like man ner, and marked out the true line of policy to be followed by the people of Indiana in relieving themselves of one-half of their great financial burthens, that were then resting like an incubus upon their despair ing energies, ho timifl were tlie residue or that committee in that dark and perilous hour, that not a single one of them had either the nerve or back-bone to join him iu bis report. Yet, the whole matter was finally ndjusted upon the terms and in pur suance of the plan therein laid down and marked out. To how you that it was not a party measure, here is the vote on the bill in both branches of tbe legislature. In the Senate. For the bill. I3Wbigti and 1 1 Democrats. Against bill. 8 " " 10 " In the House. For the bill 38 Whigs and 32 Democrats. Against bill, 18 ' " 12 " So you see, that there are really more Whigs voting for the bill than Democrats, in both branches of the legislature. In Mr. Secrest's argument he does uot even allude to the idea, that it was either a Democratic or Whig measure, but a meas ure in which all should unite for the honor and welfare of the State ; and upon which the great majority of both parties did unite clearly demonstrating that it was uot a party measure. Having fully shown from the history of the internal improvement system, and from the votes of the various parties that brought it into existence, that it was uot a party measure, aud that the record, which em braces all the losses that were brougbt upou the State by that ruinous system, and which the Governor assumes to apply to the op posite party, as their record, is alike the record of both parties, and not the separate record of either; aud for which neither party is separately liable, but the liability attaches to both jointly; neither should uu- j dertaku, now, to shirk the responsibility. THE EXTRAVAGANCE OF WHIG AND DEMO CRATIC ADMINISTRATIONS COMPARED. I come now to the Governor's second ar gument, and that is, that the ordinary ex penditures of the State, during the period preceding the election of a Democratic Gov ernor, were greater than under the Demo cratic administration. In order to prove the fact, he goes back, not nine year-i as before, but six years: and takes the six years preceding Gov. Wbitcomb's adminis tration, and compares them with the six years following; and by that kind of reas oning, undertakes to show how economiz ing Democratic administrations are, when compared with Whig administrations. As the people have a great deal more anxiety to know something about the economy of Democratic administrations in these latter days, than they have to inquire how their money was spent fifteen or twenty years ago, I can't see how it was, that the Gov ernor did not, if he desiied to enlighten the people upon the subject of Democratic eco nomy, and give them a clear and accurate history of the management of tbe affairs of the State, take an equal number of years prior to 1844, under what be is pleased to term Whig administration, and compare them with the same number of year-: un der Democratic administrations since that time. I can only account for it on the ground of his extreme modesty in not desir ing to obtrude upon the public the econo mical working of his administration. Yet near the beginning of his speech, in speak ing of the management of the affairs of the State, he uses the following language : "In so doing it will become necessary for me to comment njion my own action, since 1 have been your chief executive, and upon the action of those who consti tute the Opposition." As the Gov. has seen fit, howeTer, to go back only six years from 1844, and compare theordinary expenditures from 1838 to the close of 1843, under Whig administrations as he claims ( vet tot one-half of the time the Democrats had the Secretary and Treasurer of State), with the ordinary expenditures from 1844 to 1851 under Democratic administrations, 1 pro pose, first to answer his arguments deduc ed from the contrast, aud will theu relieve the Governor of the modest aud delicate task of reviewing the acts of his own ad ministration, by doing the same for him. From 1838 to 1843, there were just as tuauy officers to be paid as afterward, till 1851, aud during those years tbe iuterual im provement system and its ruinous conse quences were upon us and of course requir ed lengthy sessions of the legislature to devise ways and means to relieve tbe Suite of her embarrassments. Ju 144, by tbe joint vote of both Whigs and Democrats, the salaries of all tbe officers were lowered, and tbe law further provided that after forty days tbe pay of members of the Legislature should only" be one dollar and fifty cunts, which virtually cut the sessions down to forty days, instead of sixty as before. Yet notwitLtaodin-' tbtce reductions, 'bicb were not party mtaiufces. the avi rage annual expenditure.- from 1638 to HJ43, was ouiy about seHfen tbouiod dollars more than from 1844 to 18ol. The reduction ot sala ries of officers, and the shortening of tbe sessions of the Legislature, which were ac complished by the votes of Whigs ,as well as Democrats, will make up, in a great measure, tbe difference. cONT.IXCfcD TO-MOKUOW. Use op the Barometer st Farmers. There is no doubt that farmers would find great advantage in consulting tbe bororae ter when harvesting their crops. Several instances of its usefulness have been made known to usi A gentleman who had fixed a day for commencing haying, fonnd that his barometer op that morning indicated rain, and he postponed baying. It rained during the day and for two succeeding days but he saved hit hay, while his neighbors who bad no means of foretelling tbe weather cut their grass and lost by tbe operation. A farmer at Chatham, N. Y., had a large quautity of hay and grain cut one day, and on going to dinner noticed that the barome ter indicated rain. His men went immedi ately to work and saved most of the bay and grain, while his neighbors who were not forwarned in time experienced a loss. A physician at Reading had fixed a day for haying ; th'.; morning was fine, but the ba rometer said rain, and he deferred mowing and advised his neighbors to do the same. But they laughed at him and went to work and the rain came at noon. Many such facts might be given to show the value of the barometer to a farmer. It will soon be considered as indispensable in a farmer's kitchen as a clock or a wife. Springfield Republican. Another of His TricK3. It is reported on tbe streets that the leaders of the faction . have arranged to have the stump candidate I - ik:. , i qv, v, j vi?it this City on the 19th mst., the day set tor me estate .Hiiuttry encampment, so as to claim the attendance as simply and purely to see Stephen. It is expected, of course, that the Military Companies wilt meet him at tbe Depot, and escort him to their en campment grounds, where he will enlight en them on his peculiar views of squatter sovereignty. Whether thisbeautiful arrange ment will meet the views of the Breckin ridge, Bell, and Lincoln men in the compa nies, remains to be seen. It is a good plan to get cheap music, and a crowd, so as to telegraph to the world that the military of Indiana delight to honor "the rising man." But will it work ? TVe shall see. Old Line Guard. What they are Fighting For. A prom inent Douglas man remarked in our hearing a few days since, that he was satisfied that Douglas could not be elected by the people, and that he doubted much whether he would carry a single free State. Upon being ask ed why his party was fighting so ardently for a hopeless issue, he replied : "We are not fighting for the 'little giant' but for the State aud local offices.'' This is so. The knowing ones have given up all idea of success for their stump candidates, aud are fighting for Sheriffs, Coroners, &c. Such an indiguity was never before heaped upou a nominee of the party for President. He is made to carry ;dl the little fish of tbe tribe. Yin. Gaz. Gallatin Lincoln Clcb.

At the South-Western Indiana Diatrict Fair, held here October. 185D, there ac re but two premiums offered fur cooking stoves one fur the best wood ctatklng stove .and one for tho best coal cooking stove. The Economist took the FIRST PREMIUM FOB THE BUST . OOKINO STOVE FOR WOOD. Roelker, Kinsman A ( o took the first premium for their cooking stove for coal. No other premiums were offered. The large silver medal was awarded to the Economist at the New York State Fair; and the first premium at the United State Fair held aw Chicago, and twelve other State anil Connty Fair in 185!l. In no branch of mechanical art has thero been a more apparent advance than In tne man ufacture ot stoves. It is bnt a few years since tliu verv n-ime was a. noveltv. reT'resentiiis' a I huge, shapeless structure, almost as devoid ot use as ornament, These liave gradually given place to pattern of grace and utility ; until the varieties our markets now present have almost exhausted tlie vocabulary tf names; ami the different phases the metal is made tu assume, would astonish old Vulcan himself. In stylo and finish, the improve ment baa been real, leaving nothing to bo desire i on that point, but the severe competition in price, to which they havo been trahjocted, h is deprived them of many of the tnut snbsrantial qualities desirable. This seems more specially to have been trie case in reference to cook stoves an article e l domestic economy thAt has more to do with scolding wives and crotchety servants than most people im agine. The public have lung sought an improve ment In this article, and we believe are ready to pay any reasonable price for a cooking stove, if it only possesses the merits of size, weight, convenience, durability, economy, and perfection ot manufacture. These qualities seem to be possessed most fully in the Economist anew tove, perfected and brought out the past season, by Messrs, Treadweli, Perry '. Norton, of Albany. We heard so much of this stove, and it looked SO much like a stove intended for use, that concluded to try thein, and the result of tbe experiment convince u thai, the pronneuirs, in their determination to make theret stove in 0e world, havo succeeded. We regard tho Economist as possessing all the merits above enu merated a the great stove of the day far in ail vance of anything ever attempted iu tho line ot stoves, perfect iu all its appointments, and true to its name iu durability autl Uio dee of fuel, iuon, the many conveniences attached to it, may lie men tioaed large oven, with hooks arranged, for sus pending meats while roasting.
