Gn-rel Lane descended from Revolution. an"-tor, was born In the State of North "jroli. wa. re.ired and educated in Ken-.- emiprated to In liana and settled "t'.bar.Vsuf tho Ohio, in the county of Vanderbur, -here, without the addition of i p f.irnilv or fortune, he worked his way ft'om'aa humble plough-boy and fiat boatman n ,kc MUin-i- iht l,ih ,i,,Mon f j; ..;nCuished soldier and itate.man. ai wa . .e of twenty one when barely eligible, he wai Acted rcpresentotive in the Legislature of tl ,nd continued to represent his peo- ,le t internal of one or two years, cither ,Q ihe House or the Senate, for about a quar ter of a century. Pressing a clear, Strong ttnd practical mind, he took a liberal and cor rect view of all questions affecting Stale it National interest, which he enforced with an eloquence and power, which placed him in ih front rank of the ablest men in the Leg U'.oture. His name is indissolubly connected with some of the most important measures which developed the resources, advanced the prosperity end improved the finances of tho SUc, especially his successful efforts to pre .crve'untnrnished the public faith, and to prevent the repudiation of the public debt, which was boldly advocated by some of the 'naffest men in Indiana. When the Mexican war broke out, General .Mie was a member of the Stato Senate , and whe ri a coll was made upon Indiana, to furnish volunteers for the war, with that devoted pa triotisro, whii'h has ever characterised him, he immediately resigned his seat, and volun ' t-cred a a private in Captain Walker's com ;.ny. When the companies rendesvoused at New Albany, he was ejected from the ranks as their Colonel; but he was cot permitted to hold thti commission but a very few days The sagacious statesman, James K. Po!fc, then President of the United States, discern ii.g in fJenertl Lane the qualities to make a cucces.sfut warrior, ser.t him a commission of liriiradter Cienernl, ft coinpliment as unex-V-ted as it vrac unsolicited by him. The exponents of tits Administration and of tho war, throughout the State, de:iouuced and ridi culed tho appoii.tment ; declared that he might make a good General of the flat. boat n.fii on the MissiMppi, but that the idea of Joseph Lane,- who had never coin mar de l a cuiupaiiy in hi life, talking camutDd of it Brigade in war, win timply ridiculous; that he would disgrace hiulaeif, hi State and the nation. Never did man's achievement in war, more completely falsify the prediction of li i enemies and realize toe most sanguine expectations of his friends, or more triumph anfly vindicate the wisdom of the appoint ment. In less than three weeks fcfu the receipt of his commission, he was at the seat of war, with all hia trOopn. In communicating hih arrival to General TnUor, he wrote thus: "The brigade I have the honor to command is generally in good heoltii and spiritu, anxious to engngo in active service." The indomitable energy, the self-sacrificing fpirit, the sound judgment, and firm purpose which he displayed in the active service ot Ci'il life, were eminently conspicuous in the stirring scenes of battle, blood and carnage throogh which he passed, illustrated by a daring bravery and heroism, which placed him among tho most distinguished heroes of that memorable war. To recount the battles in which General Lane was engaged, the dangers to which he was exposed, the brave dffds he performed, the skill and judgment with which he planned his battles, and tSe unwavering success with which he fought them, would consume more space than we have to sparo. Such w the celerity of his movements, the .kill and Ktratcgem of his plans, the boldness and rapidity of t!,e men tion, and the enthusiasm nd valor with which he inspired bU Bss, by hi iui,...i.iund ap peals to their valor, as they visited the most Jarful slaughter cpon lbs enemy, the name of Lane struck terror to the Mexican heart, and by common 'consent he wai styled the "Marion of the Mexican War." Of all the battle, fought, in Mexico, the battle of Buena Vuta wa, the severest and most hotly con tested, and one of the ro..t remarkable in the finals of the world. Thers the American rroy, consisting of about fire thousand mostly raw milit.a, met twenty thound of the chosen troop, of Santa Anna, in deadly tonflict, and after a protracted struggle of two days achieved a glorious triumph. In the battle General Lao. performed a most important part No officer contributed more by his gallantry and generaUhip to win the fortunes of the day. Upon the left wing of the American army, which Gencal Lane commanded, Santa Anna directed his most ebstinate and deadly assaults. With but four hssdrcd men General Lane repulsed a large body of Mexicans, six thousand strong. While nothing could exceed the fearful array of the assailants, as they moved toward the little band of Laos, with their long lines of Infant y, presenting a continued sheet of fire; toothing cou'd surpass the undaunted firm. ims and bravery with which Lane and his aen maintained their position and poured heir volley! of musketry ioto the advancing DAKOTA. CI1 VOL. .2 columns of the enemy, which rade tiiem brenh and fall back. Throughout the varying fortune of that Irving day, General Lane with his littl" bund of heroe,, maintained his position and repulsed th enemy at every point On the second Juy of tht battle, Santa Anna finding hia strength defined and hih moat skiiKul nianesjvres de feated, as the day was drawing to a close, de termined to make a desperate effort to turn the tide of battle in his favor. Collecting all his infantry, he made a charge on the Illinois and Kentucky regiments. Gallantly dtd theso brave troops renist the onset, until seeing their leaders fall, and overpowered by nura bers, thoy began to waver and fall back. At that critical moment the engle eye of General Lr.ne observed the movement, when ho has tened with his Brigade to the rescue, in time to enable the retreating regiment, to form and return to the contest, and drive back with great loss tho advancing columns of the enemy. This was Santa Arna's last struggle. On that bloody and hotly contested field, night soon clotted over the sanguinary scene, end when the morning nun arose, it shone upon tho battle field, deserted by Santa Anna with his shattered legions, while the Star Spangled Banner waved iu triumph over the Americar army. No odicer went into tho Mexican war with less pretensions than General Lane, none Came out of it with a brighter fame the testi mony of eye witnesses, historians, and offi cial records attest the fact. The New Or leans Delta, of May 2, 1847, recoided the popular estimation in which Genernl Lane's conduct was held in the buttle of Buena Vista, as follows: "Brmadier GcvcniL Line. The hearing of this gallant officer in the battle of Buena Vista, as described bv persons who were pres ent, was in the highest degree gallant, noble, and soldierlike. When his brignde, com posed cf the two Indiana regiments, was ex posed to a murderous fire from tho Mexican batteries on their flanks, and n front fire from the enemy's infantry when the grape and tnui-hiit shot flow us thick as hail over and through the lint-3 of our volunteers, who began to waver before the fiery storm, their brave General could be seen fifty yards in , of twenty ye&rs experience, was told that the advance of the line, waving his sword with passage of tho Uocky Mou.iHi.iin at this sea an arm already shattered by a musket hall, son of tne year, with certainty of spending streaming with blood, and mounted on a no ble charger, which was gradually sinking un der the !o of Wood from five dixtinct wounds. A brave sight indeel was this!" This brave m.m, whose cheek never j I lunched with fear or eye quailed amidst hot- ( test conflict.-) of battle, has a heart of tender ne.ss which melts at human woe. His solicit tude and care of the nick, the wounded, and the dying, was manifested on many occasions. Numerous incidents and anecdotes are nar rated illustrating his kindness ar.d tenderness in relieving their sufferings, and administer ing to their comfort in the Hospi'.als, and on the battla fields, which so endeared him to hii troops that it made him always invincible when their leader. On his return home, whtrever he stopped, citizens of all classes vied to do honor to the distinguished hero Whikt in the city of Cincinnati, the guest of Gen. Moore, an incident occured illustra tive of his native kindness and tenderness, and the gratitude of the recipent. "A Ger man citizen ushered himself into the presence of General Lane, amidnt the guen'.s in the parlor. He asked if General Lane was in. The General rose and answered that he was. The German, with emotion, asked Do you ltnow me General? I do not, said the Gen e ul. German Well, sir, I recollect and thank you, and wil' recollect and thank you to the last day of my life. Do you remember after the fight with tho Guerrillas ot Mango de Clavo, in which we routed the socrudrcls so finely, you found a soldier dying by the woy si3e", nvhansted by the heat nf the gnn and the exertion of the day, and dismounting from your horse and placed him on it, walk ing by his side until yoU reached the camp, where you did not rest till you saw him well taken care of?" The General replied that he recollected the circumstance vtiry well. "Well," said the German, "I am the boy, and by that act of kindness you saved my life. I am here to thank you. How can I ever for get or cease to pray for you? God bleu you; you were indeed the soldier's friend." In his own State of Indiana, it was a per fect ovation, wherever be went The masses the hardy sons of toil turned out from all the country, and from every hamlet and vil lage, to welcome and do honor to the man of the people. He was feasted and toasted, and congratulatory addresses were made to him in tbe name of the people, by the most dis tinguished men of the Slate. He bore all the honors and compliments showered upon him meekly, and, with characteristic modes ty, claimed for himself nothing more than having tried to do his duty. In his emphat' ic language be said "To tbe hrave volunteers under my command, I feel that the honor is justly d.ie; without their aid, t could have done nothing. 'Peace hath be'r victories no lest renowned than war." A few days after Gen.

In August IHS, he received a cominiicn si Governorof Oregon Territory, ar.otberconiph ment m unexpected as unec-Kcitd, from Pirs ident Polk. In less than . month from !. ti.ne he re turned to the bosom of his family from the stirring scenes of war, he wa, en roite for the distant chores of the Pacific, with hard ships, peril and privations to encounter in crossing the Rocky Mountains at that seasoti : of tho year to reach his post of duty, which required an energy, hardihood and self reli ence to overcome which but few men possess. Col. Fremont, who followed him a few wee'-j afterward-, taking a different route acros the mountains, lost almost his entire party, amidst the cold and snows in the gorges ana defiles in the mountains, and nearly perished himself. A narrative of the hardships and sufferings endured, and the perils encountered, by Gov. Lane and his party, in crossing the Koclty Mountains, would fill a volume. We can now no more than q.iote from a speech made by Mr. Voorhees, of Indiana, last winter to the citizens of Washington who had asstmbled to congratulate Gen. Lane upon the admission of Oregon into tho Union, and himself into the United States Senate as one of her Sens tors, he said : There is a history of events connected with the Pioneer movements of Gen. Lane to Oregon, not generally known to the Ameri can people. On the 1 1th of September, ISM, at the foot of the eastern slope of the Roc'y Mountains, with a commission from President Polk as Governor of Oregon Territoiy in hit pocket, he, to whom you tender the honor of this deruonotration, gave evidence to his coun try and to the w-iSrld, Of a will and a c.-nr!g.-, in the discharge of duty, surpassing thf.t which Napoleon displayed in bis immortal passage of the Alps. The great hero of An Eterlitz and Marergo was told by his guide, that the route was barely passable, and the order came from the bold spirit to set for ward immediately. Gen. Lane, in consulta tion with Colonel Dougherty, a mountaineer the winter iu their midst, was a human im possibility. "We will set firward in the morning," was the reply of ' trie American hero and patriot, who never knew fear in the achievement of public duty. lie aril his lit- tie band moved in tho morning, and for five weary and desolate months, were lost and buried amid the gorges and defiles and snows of the mountains. Fancy may paint, but the tongue can not sketch even the faint out line of that expedition. On the 3d of March, 1H19, Gen. Lane reached the Capital of Ore gon, and before he slept, put the Territorial Government in operation and started a com munication to the President informing him of the fact. In the discharge of the duties cf Governor of the Territory of Oregon, an ex officio super intendent of Indian affairs, Gen- Lone evinced tbe highest order of ability. H:s messages to the Territorial Legislature, abound in sound and practical views relative to the wants aud interests of the Territory, and in tbe recommendation of wholesome and judi cious measures, calculated to develop the re sources, and promote the prosperity of tbe people. He found the Indian affairs in the most troubled condition the troops disband ed, the various tribes in a hostile attitude to the citizens Bad committed depredations upou their property, and murdered several families tho murderers unpunished, and no restitution of stolen property. As soon as he put tho government in operation; without troops he proceeded to the scenes of depre dation, robbery and morder, and by his super ior addreH. tact, and judgment, be j'je!jd all disturbances, had the murderers arrested and puhiohed, aud without war or bloodshed, accomplished what both had failed to effect. An incident occurred in Governor Lane's "talk" with tho Hague River Indians, a -like Bnd predatory tribe, which illustrated his remarkable self possession, coolness and judgment, in imminent peril. He entered their country with twelve or fifteen men ; the Indians bad fiercely rejected all attempts by the whites at conciliation. Tbe safety of the border citizens required decided terms of war or peace. Gen. Lane chose the latter; with some difficulty he succeeded in assemb ling four or five huudred warriors in council. During tbe interview, one of his company re cognized two horses stolen from him, in the possession of the Indians, and two pistols then in the belts of two chiefs. The Gover nor demanded restitution of tbe property, which restored, he said, would evince their willingness to treat and preserve peace The bead chief ordered restitution, but the possessors refused. The Governor then step ped fyrwar J and took one of the stolen pistol' from the Indian's belt and gave it to the owner, and was about to take the other piste!, when the lodiaa who bad it, presented his gua and raued the war whoop Iiutanllv four or hvc hundred guns and arrow, were point .. . ... v . ed at n-uir.il Laue ud his sine 1 partv.

He said, I have com her to make a treaty of peac, not to have a fi:ht, promptly s'ep- p:ng to the ide of the. principal chief, with . his firm eye fixed on his pistol in hand, he told him if a drop of blood of any of the whites wss shed, it idiould be avenged by the destruction of hi.-, entire tribe. The chief told his warriors to rease their hostile de- nionstrations. The. Governor then advanced among tho ferenv.st, look their arrow, from their bow, and retutired them to their quivers, and uncocked their puns, and knocked the priraing from their pans. Gen.

Whereupon the Legisla ture of Oregon, pruned resolutions expressive of their high sense of the energy, ablity, and scccess, which characterized his administra tion as Governor of Oreg iii, and Superinten dent of Indian Affairs, and their "sincere re grettha'.the President of the United States has deprived the Territory of Oregon of the future service of one soeminently useful, and whose usefulness was enhanced by the unbounded confidence of the people over whom he was placed." The people whose representatives they were, seconded these resolutions by electing him by an almost unanimous vote, their delegato to represent theic in the Con gress Of the United S.a'.es. Upon tho eve of Ger. Lane's departure from Oregon for tho National Capital, n't their delegate to Congress, the people without distinction of party, held a n:us.i meeting; to tender ''him a public expression of opinion in regard to his distinguished talents and servic es." A monjj other thing, esolved, "that as friends of General Joseph Lane without di stinction of party we tender him our hearty and entire approbation of his acts as Gover- nor of Oregon Territory," and that "the abi lity, energy, fidoltvand pueny of purpose, i which has ch.'fwSKajN all his public acts txong us; jut!ng trial we express r' . . ...

Endowed with a strong and practical mind, stored with the most useful knowledge acquired ly extensive reading and accurate observation, sound, liberal, and conservative in his views of the policy and principles nf our government, he combines personal traits of character emi nently calculated to win the popular heart, with a warm, generous and manly spirit, with a kind, frank, and social disposition, with ft d.mearior so modest and unpretending that ho excites no one's envy, he was acquired an influence and popularity which but few men seldom attain.

Li Oregon his name is a tower of strength. In the halls of Co.-.grcss his popularity and iciiueric" ar un surpassed, indeed, it was chiefly owing to bis influence and exertions that the bill to admit Oregon into the Union passed the House at the last session. The passage of the bill wa, attended by great excitement. It was violently opposed by the ultra men, North and South the Abolitionists and Fire-Eater When the final vote was taken, a breathless silence reigned through the Hall and the crowded galleries, broken only by the emphatic answer of yea and nay, as the members answered to the call of the clerk for their vote; as the vote was being taken, members were to be seen, in all parts of the Hall, keep ing count of the vote, when Felix K.
