Senator Yntesof Illinois, in the conrsu of the eloquent Hpeeeh at hlw recent re ception at the capltol of that State, made the following reference to a memorable event iu Ita history : You all remember well 1 refer to it because I was at that time a member of the Lcylsdature when the State of Illi nois became Involved iu a debt to the amount ofSliO.IKIO.OOO. Incurred from the mammoth system of ''internal improve ments." Mississippi, under the lead of Jetl'Davls, repudiated her debt, and tho iNortnern Democracy, the Dcmoenmy of Illinois, were also iu favorof ropudlat- n g ine debt, ot Illinois; and 1 am sorry o say. also, that nianv of our Wlti'tr friends believed this debt could never be paid. We remember that it was at a time of tlnancial embarrassment; that there was no immigration to the State ; all were borne down heavily with taxes, and it seemed that the payment of this debt was an impossible thing. But, notwithstanding tills, as members of mo legislature, wo came lorward and levied the two-mill tax. and from that very moment tho State of Illinois began to prosper as it never nati prospered lie fore. The people honestly and faithful ly stood by their contract; immigration began to come into tho State, ami the consequence now is that Illinois is one of the most prosperous States in tliu Fu ton, wim nearly three millions or in habitants ; her credit is ltiirh in everv part of tho world upon the banks of tne unine, in iMiglanil and everywhere, the bonds of tho State of Illinois, and its honest people, are high, and the peo ple have nourished bv the blcssintrs of CJod, because they stood faithfully and noucstiy by tlielr contracts. (Jod bless bur beautiful and glorious Illinois ! the State Unit stands by her faith, tho State that keeps her word, tho State that lias elected the President the two last terms, and the State that will elect the next President from iter borders.
