PUBLIC WORKS. The State board of Internal improvement which convened at this place, on Monday the 12th inst., adjourned on tfco 16th. Ail the members were in attendance. - Of the various subjects of general interest, which claimed and received the attention of the Board, we have gleaned tbo following items. A report was made by the Principal Engineer on Roods and Rail-way?, of bis exploration, sur- -I -,-.-.- r Km Alfrtnv nrwl V t J , MM vatUSllCS VI IUV nww j Crawfordavillc Ruod, between New Albany and Malem, and of a rcconnoisanee of the same, from Salem to Biuomington; in reference to which re port, an order was made, directing the acting com raist.ioner,ioct. Maxwell, forthwith to cause a sur vey, to be made Crom Saletn through Bedford, Bloomington, and Grccncastlc, to Crawfordsvillc, or the nearest an4 best groan 1, and at a grado not exceeding 3 1-2 degree elevation from a lior izontal line, and cause the line to be cleared and grubbed, by letting contracts ( r that purpose, beginning at Silcni an I extending northwardly, or at such points as imy ficiiitatc, to the greatest extent the transportation of produce to the near est it-'et to market, as pooh as the ncccssary surveys arc m ide, keeping his expenses within the limits agreed upon by the Board, at its pre sent session, in regard to the amount of the pre sent fund applicable to thrr several works of the tate. This orrlor, it may be fiirly conjectured, has tho effect of establishing tho Kiwi as a M'A ilamtzod Turnpike. Tho great ct of n Kail Road, on this ro itc as shown I y tho report of tho Engineer, it is supposed, induced the Board to question the propriety of constructing , that km I of improvement; anl tho fact that no ar rangement had yet been mada with the Salem and Ohio Turnpike Company, as is required by law, induced the commencement of the work, north of Salem, instead of commencing at the Ohio ri ver, as has been the policy with regfird to other work. A delegation from the county of Fountain pre sented a request that tlio expression should be made, of tho sense of tho Bwtrd in reference to the terminating point on tho Wabash, of the Wa bash and Erie Canal, it being alledgcd by the delegation, that reports from interested quarters, had been and were still industriously circulated that the Board would break faith by refusing to make arrangements fr tho ultimate continuation W the canal, south of Lafayette. In answer to the call, the Bjard prompt! v resolved that the policy heretofore adopted by it,in relation to the commencement an:f prosecution of the public works, and disclosed t ol he General Assembly in the annual report of the Bjard, would not be de parted from ; and that a division of tho canal, sauth of Lafayette, would be put under contract, at the earliest period compatiblcwith existing en gagements. Mr. Yondc?, is aulhoritcd, in pursuance of lav o cause a survey and estimate to Lc made, on the Alichigan Kond, through Logansport, South Bend and Laportc, to Michigan Citv with a view of ascertaining the most practicable kind of improvement to Ikj made; provicrcU Michigan Road fudnscan be procured fur tho purpose, and report to the Board, at its next semi-annual meet ing. Mr. Yandc? is fir; her authorized, to cx- penuco mucn ol tiio iHicnigin road lauds, as says another member froraanothcr certain county, "jBjroad shall be put in the first class!" uYour road in the first class P says an indignant thirds man. Yottr road in the first class! Resolved that my road shall bo in the first class." Order! Or der!? cries the speaker. "Previous question," yells the first mover. , If my Road cant be in the Gift class," says one "I sh-all vote against the whole system." "So will I," savs another, "And I" "And I" "And I," from sundry voices. And what will be the natural result of "thL feel ing but an entire prostration of the whole sys tem? The fact is, none will consent to sec their work postponed for a scries of year, and sit by the while, looking contendly at the improvement and wealth of u neighboring portion of the State. It is natural. Who would consent to be in the last class and thrown back, perhaps thirty years, Would not every member of spirit prcforau entire prostration of the system, to such a course of par tial operations? And thai! the system bo pros trate J after the state lias eflectcd large loens,com menced operation., and gotten her work partly under contract? Every fueling of patriofi.s.n-in-tcrcst and honor, cries oat loudly against it. It is for these reasons that wc esteem the plan absurd, From tbe Riehmood Whig. BANK SECRECY, IMPORTANT SUGGESTIO?!. A gentleman in whose judgment, sagacity and experience, we have great confidence, sub mits a suggestion for the future management of tho banks, which is entitled to great considera tion. The suggestion is, that all secrecy should be entirely removed from the operations of the bank; that a monthly statement of every trans action should be published and hung up in the banking room. The priposition is at first calculated to startle those who have been accustomed to consider se crecy as essential to successful "banking. But we think upon farther consideration, it will be held that secrecy is not only not necessary, but that the most extensive publicity to every dis count would exert the most salutary influence, and prove the most wholesome check over the banks vet devised. It would bevond doubt be a thorough preventive to favoritism and loans with out adequate security. Had it liecn in force here tofore, it would have prevented the wild specula tions to which the banks have been auxiliary it would have prevented the office-holders and favor ites of the i'cts from obtaining the means to spec u.'ate in public lands, which more than nny ether Mixrro Wi3wjii or The Wonderful Care. A singular story was formerly totd ot a cave in Upper Canada, on the ridge that bounds the west em shore of Ontario, from which it was but seven or eight miles distant. It bore the awe-inspiring name of tho ltevila Wigwam Matchtmanto Wigwam so called by the Indians, who seemed devoutly to believe that the father of lies had there established his head-quarters. The Manito Wigwam, was reported to be of vast depth, con sisting of several terraces, separated from one an other by precipices of more than a hundred feet perpendicular pitch, tho last terminating in fathomless gulf? into which no human being had ever attempted to penetrate, i rom uus cavern, once a week, issued a terrific and carthquakc-!ike explosion, of such force as to shake the hills, for five leagues around. and urge its absurdity in opposition to the candi- J oac ca,JSC u?ls pn;i:iccd tnc bankruptcy "of the dale who is running upon its morits. Classilica tion is but another name fir nullification its ten dencies arc the same. It has been gotten up, wc fear, by men who have anything but our State' welfare at heart and we shudder at tho thought of results, which its advocate?, if successful, will bring about. The people of Indiana must tec that the woiks are cither to bo all comp!etod,uc- dcr the present arrangement, or else, that they arc all to be abandoned. Shall lien be abandoned? Will our citizens be so fir misled by the sophistry of deluding dcimgogucs, as to crush Indiana our voung, our growing State; just developing its great resources barely attained to the vigorof voiilli and vet exhibiting the muscu'ar porportions of matured age. Will they say by their repre sentatives that canals shall bo suspended, that commerce and emigration shall not visit our shorcr that turnpikes ami railways now in ope ration shall be arrested, and that every avenue to our fine soil to our rick country, shall be block aded by forests ami almost impassible routes. We fervently trust that such will not be the senti ment of our citizens. Wc hope for better things. It will be the frenzed act of tho lunatic if it is committed. It will be tho death blow to our ford cst anticipations. All the drcarrs of coming greatness in which wc have indulged, will lie bro ken in upon by tho i oddest of realities, if this specious doctrine of classification be contcnanccd by the people. WHIG AND TORY. These two terms were perfectly understood during our revolutionary war, and subsequently in England they wcro as distinctively well known, and are at this day applied to the friends of lib eral opinions on the one side and to tho aristocra cy on the other. The term whig adopted by the mentis ol tbc Constitution and I.aws, in their struggle against the worst of despotism in this country, is just, applicable, appropriate and cor rcct; but their was much hesitancy and back wardncss in applying tho term tory to all our op may remain (if any) afler m iking tho survey, in i poncnts.

Mr. Lewis is directed to sell the canal lands, reserved from sale by the old board of Canal Commissioners, pursuant to tbc requirements of tho act nT llh February 1837.

Tho President of tbo Board, is instructed to open a correspondence with the Commissioner of the General Land Office, in relation to tho se lection of the lands duo to that portion of tho Wabash and Erie Canal, extending from the mouth of Tippecanoe river to Tcrre Haute un der tho act of Congress of the 23d of March 1827. No further let tings arc contemplated by tho Board, previous to their noxt meeting, (1st Mon day of December.) excepting tbo crabbing of some portion of the New Albany and Craw fordsville Road, and a small amount of work at the Grand Rapids of the Wabash, if tbc proper arrangements can be perfected with the authori ties of Illinois. It is understood that the Board agreed, that each member will urge upon the contractors on the several lines, an immediate reduction in tbc prices now paid for labour, so as to conform more nearly, to the new stato of things produced by the commercial changes, which have recently taken place.

On the score of character, we presume ho is as well entitled as any man to tho support of the people. But there is a main objection to him. It is now fairly understood that the candid ates lor Governor are running upon the question of Internal Improvement. Governor Wallace risks his hopes of success upon his inflexible ad herence to the bill of 1835-15, by which all tbo public works therein created, will be as nearly, as possible, simultaneous fy completed. Air. Tay lor, on the other hand, bases his aspirations upon the strength of the theory of classification, by means of which one public work will be first ex ecuted then another and so until the whole are completed. Now, it is upon the absurdity of this thing called classification, that ww rest our first ground of objection to Mr. Taylor, ft us examine the practicability of the scheme and ce what it amounts to. The state of Indiana hare passed laws author izing the construction of certain public works, for the coasummation of which she has already borrowed upwards of a million and a half of dol lars, employed Engineers and Contractors, who in their turn hare employed hands, commenced op erations and have several of the works in fine pro gress, in their wisdom, to complete one work at a time, "which," say they, "will diminish the tremenduous tax now imposed upon the dear citi- . IC L .-If- .1 J . w waura niuus ihcj ulp not care, m nun, and whoa they are endeavoring to blind for tho furtherance of their own vile purposes,) mm iinnaiery meets the same objects, as tbo' all had been completed at once." This is the bur then of the classification song. Now, let as see how it is to be put into cect. In order to do this, we will sappase the ma jority of the Legislature to be composed of the advocates of Classification. Well the house is orgaaiaed and the Speaker mbu chair. Up jumps member from a certain county, through which "J"lp0r5"!.,o.i 10 aod Reles "that saoJ road shall put in the first class." "No no," deluded ones it is rrtte, Who adherred to (he pof- I" wa . v a a icy 01 ja-Kson, ana 10 wuom wc couiu noi tho term tory with strict justice; but the crisis has at length arrived, the issue is made up, and there can be no doubt that those who sustain the gross abuse of power at Washington are in heart and principle tories, and so should be called and considcrod. Wo have however a warrant for saying, that tho application of the term tory to our opponents, should be as general as tho use of ithig when applied to the friends of liberty. Tbo measures of the administration arc more oppressive than the tory measures which during our revolutionary war,and the distress brought on the country is greater wc aro thcrolu like the colonists in 1770, struggling for free dom against our oppressors with this difFercricc, that the torics of 1770 were mostly abroad, ours are all at home tho evil is therefore at our doors. One of the leading Van Burcn men in Penn sylvania is Charles J. Jngersoll he is the Van Burcn candidate for Congress their man in the State Convention, the one who was for violating all charters. Let us hear from his own mouth his own confessions that be was and is a tory; In the Democratic Press of Friday, June Cth 1807, the following paragraph was published. "1 WOULD HAVE-BEEN A TORY." "Ono of Governor McKcan's officers who sup planted a democrat, and who officiates in the Orphan's Court, was beard to say the other day that : Add ue been a man during the American Revolution he should hare been a Tort That ereru man of honok teas a Toby during that time." The Tory referred to, knowing who was meant, addressed a letter to the Editor cf that paper, which was published on Monday, June 8, 18117, from which the following extracts arc taken. J he whole letter will be re-published, if desired. Mr. Bixxs Soma days ago on my way to the Shcrifls of fice, where I h id occasion to call, I fouud that gentleman and Judge Johnathan Smith on the area in front of the State House. After dis patching my professional arrangements with the sheriff, we talked politics as wc arc in the habit of doing often, and with perfect good humor. Mr. Smith remained entirely neutral. Gen Ba ker was, I thought, unusually animated in rep robation of Torics: upon which 1 said, as you have published, that had I been a man during the Revolution, I SHOULD ILWE BEEN A TORY that many of the best men in the country urcre so rtcn." r - I endeavor to molest no body with mv politi cal sentiments, though I disdain to disguise them, government, ma Mitioii to the lss ot public -i main. The adoption of the suggestion now would show who have had undue accommodations at the J banks, and who have engaged in these wil 1 and ! ruinous speculations. It is due to the people that i f Ilia nvniu."! ciKi-knl I Iw an"!- t ma rJ i tf tra til administration, which lies under strong suspicions of h iving profited by its connection with the Pet Biuks that the indebtedness of every individu al, past and present, to those institutions, and to every ether in tho country, should be laid open to tbo country. We take the liberty of making an extract from the letter of our correspondent, though not intend ed f r the public: ? . i i i p : .:t. . -uuas long IH5CH a lavuiiiu itiaviiii mm uiu, that instead of that inviolable secrecy in regard to tbo accounts of indiviJua?s, a list monthly should be published and hung up in tbc banking room (under the penalty of the penitentiary for a designed falsification) of the indebtedness of each individual, ilus is the real and only guarantee to a faitbfd administration. Favoritism and knavery could not be practised, while the rod of correction is thus suspended over the heads ol tbc directors, and forthwith t be applied. All dis tant accountabilities are idle. Well, the banks arc now in a condition to bo asking favors of the Legislature. Let the reasonable applications be granted on the above condition; and then we shall obtain the desired information of the practis ed abuses heretofore, and guard against the rcpe tition hereafter. The ol jeetion urged against this plan, is, that no one will deal with the banks. if their loans arc to be made public. This, to me seems frivolous. In tho country, when we bor- row, we usual I v give a lien, which is published at the Court House door. I never knew a loan refused on that account. A mnn who borrows on ly what the state of his affairs would justify cares nothing about the publicity of the fact it is only those who want to borrow more, that dread it, and it is precisely those agaitist whom I wish to guard, and especially to prevent the banks from being converted into political engines, the miifhty instruments of corruption. It was char ged that the State Bank of Tcnncsso appropriated ia lunua rf ua iu nuuume hi am ft, w . . . i election of Lien. Jackson. What seems to con firm it, is, that the Legislature of that State to this day, have never pressed an inquiry into the cause of its failure. With my project this would not have happened and in no bank could it oc cur again."

Correspondence of Vie National lalclligeneer. New Yokk, June 17, An important rumor is in circulation about the city, which comes to us through the passengers of tho ship Jumnress, which ship arrived this morn ingfrom Gibra Iter, whence she sailed on the 11th ult. By an arrival at Gibraltcr from Lisbon, orior to the sailing of the Empress, news was a r- received that there had been a severe engage ment between the followers of Carlos and the Queen's troops. The rumor in circulation is, that Don Carlos lias lost 0000 men, killed, wounded, and prisoners. If the rumor prove true, it will be a serious check to Don Carlos, but of its truth you can jidge as well as the best informed, since you have the whole story just as it came from the passengers of the Empress. Stocks this morning have taken a new start The "monster" sold well at 1061, 107 and 107J, being a continued advance, and higher than any prices received since the suspension of specie paymcuts. Gold and silver continues to be in great demand. Prices are high, and the sales few in number. American gold has been sold for a premium of 1 1 cents on the dollar, and sovereigns are sold for $4,43. Silver yields a premium of from 9 to 11 cents. These rates are absolutely ruinous to purchasers, nnd high beyond all example. Yes terday, you know, was packet day, and the amount of exported specie is variously estimated at from three to five hundred thousand dollars. Since the suspension of specie payments, the amount exported no doubt has been .$3,000,000, and prob ably 3,500,000. A continued exportation of specie, corresponding with the amount exported for the past forty days, will soon pay off our for eign debts, and re-establish the American credit in the British market.

BEEN A TORY NOR CAN I EVER CONSID ER THAT AN APPELLATION OF RE PROACH." (Signed) C. J. INGERSOLL. N. 29 Chcsnut st., June 7, 1S07. There is no mincing the matter here no e quivoeatjon no mistake of words. Mr. Van Buren's candidate for Congress in Philadelphia admits, under his own signature, that he would hare been a tory had he been capable of reason during the revolution, and that he considered there was no reproach in the aimeUation ! ! Is there an American who will vote for this tory in the city ot rnuadclphiar If there is one so base, let him come forth and shew himself, and take his rank among the enemies of the country. 11 J f . : r . i - . - . a uc uvcuvaiioa oi uus tory ts a zrross insult a an aiiacit on every wmg oi ine revolution, on every patriot who shed his blood and lost his for tune in the sacred cause, and yet this very Mr. Ingersoll is Mr. Van Buren's candidate fbrCott grcss, his confidental friend, his chief leader ia the city of Philadelphia. It is this class of to ries flat have recommended and sustained the wicked measures of our rulers, which have brou't us to rum. Why should we hesitate therefore a single moment in applying the term ton. in its i full meaning, to all who sustain the measures of j lh xtminulMl-n-i IV V t4 i professions, but the main body never had any intention of removing, and that the whole of their solemn engagements which have so completely and effectually deceived the whole army and the whole world was a stratagem x faithless perfidi ous scheme to gain time, recruit their strength and means for further bloodshed and murder. Revoivixg Leveb Crave. A new machine of this name, invented by Mr. Brutf, of this city (a modfe ol which we have seen.) appears well calculated to facilitate the construction of the Aqueduct and Canal, now being mada near this city. It combines the three great mechanic pow ers of the lever, the Wheel, and the Pulley. The machinist, (Mr. Rundell,) who made tbc modle. estimates that one man can raise, of excavated earth or stone, by a large machine, on this prin ciple, a weight equal to one and a half or two tons, in two minutes, from a depth of eight or ten feet, and discharge the same on the bank. A machine of sufficient size for ordinary purposea could be built for about $50, Rochester Democrat. Upwards of 2000 persons arc expected to leave New York, this month to settle on lands of the N. York and Boston, Iliinob Land Co. at 3 dollars an acre. It is said that the effect of the times may be seen in the adoption of call ico dresses for walk ing in the streets in New York. Independently of any pressure, this change is a proper oneJ Somehow or other the ladies of this country had gotten into the habit of dressing when they went to take a walk, in a style of costliness and dis play better suited to the drawing room than to tbe open air. i nere is a certain ntness oi tnings that ought to be observed carefully, and perhaps there can be no better way of dressing well than to attire oneself in a garb suited to the occasion. What rational person could ever think the expen sive dresses in which our ladies appeared in the streets suitable for the purpose? Light colored shoes and delicate muslins were certainly never made for treading on soiled pavements and facing the open air. How much more sensible is the European mode. There, in tbe forenoon, ladies when they walk appear in dresses of more dura ble texture and darker colors, and wear shoes suited for stepping through the mud. Instead of bonnets loaded with lace and expensive ornament?, a more substantial covering is used for the head, intended to protect the complexion at the same time that it excludes the cold. There is perhaps no article of female attire more becoming than the walking dresses used by European ladies, j warm and comfortable, but fitting their persons with a neatness and precision calculated to show off the gracefulness of their figures. If the times have corrected the abuses of dressing, which led to tbe wearing of the most costly clothing, where it must be soiled by the dust or spoiled by the hot sun, then indeed has some advantage been gathered in the midst of our afflictions. It may not be out of the way respectfully to hint that a show of economy so far as may be consis tent with neatness and propriety, is any thing but objectionable to those who expect to become hus bands, and that the solidity of judgment indica ted by a judicious adaptation of dress to occupa tion, is infinitely more pleasing to them than the frivolity naturally connected with flaunting colors or expensive stufis. Baltimore American. Woxdebfcl Escape. On Tucsdxy evening Gth inst. there was quite a storm of wind and rain in this vicinity, attended with thunder and lightning. Many trees were blown down in the neighborhood, but no serious damage, wc believe was done. Mrs. Leach, wife of Mr. Thomas I .each, of this neighbourhood, was overtaken by the storm in a piece of open woods about a mile and a half from home, and finding the storm so very violent, she sprung from her horse intending to let it run back to tbe open ground, while she would make her way to a field a few rods distant. She had not grained a dozen steps before she heard a crash behind her, and looking round a large tree had fallen and killed her horse, crushing the sad dle on which she had a moment before been seat ed , and had she stopped long enough to take her basket f rom the pommel, sho must have been killed. Escaping into the field she aimed for a tree tbc body of which being large and sound she thought would shelter her from the storm, but the wind and rain caused her after going some distance to take a dilfcrent direction, here how ever, fresh dangers threatened and the turned again towards the tree she had first aimed to reach, but before she reached it, it was prostrate. Had it stood a minute longer, or had she not changed her first direction, she would probably have per ished beneath it. Thus beset with dangers she gained a neighbor ing house, w here she staid until tbe following day, when sho reached home in safety. Zamestille Gazette. ABOLITION.
