DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. 



IN CONGRESS, TUESDAY, JULY 4, 1776. 

Agreeably to the order of the day, the Congress resolved 
it&elf into a committee of the whole, to take into their further 
consideration the Declaration; and, after some time, the Pres- 
ident resumed the chair, and Mr. Harrison reported that the 
committee had agreed to a declaration, which they desired 
him to report. (The committee consistedof Jefferson, Frank- 
lin, John Adams, Sherman, and R. R. Livingston.) 

The Declaration being read, was agreed to, as follows : 

A DECLARATION 

BY THE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, 
IN CONGRESS ASSEMBLED. 

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary 
for one people to dissolve the political bands which have con- 
nected them with another, and to assume among the powers 
of the earth the separate and equal station to which the laws 
of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect 
for the opinions of mankind rec[uires that they should declare 
the causes which impel them to the separation. 

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are 
created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with 
certain inalienable rights ; that among these are life, liberty, 
and the pursuit of happiness. That, to secure these rights, 
governments are instituted among men, deriving their just 
powers from the consent of the governed; that, whenever any 
form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is 
the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute 
a new government, laying its foundation on such principlei, 

(3; 



DECLARATION OP IISDEPENDENCE. 



and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem 
most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, 
indeed, will dictate that governments long established should 
not be changed for light and transient causes ; and, accordingly, 
a^l experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to 
suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by 
abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But, 
when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invari- 
ably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under 
absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their dutj-, to throw 
off such government, and to provide new guards for their future 
security. Such has been the patient sufferanco of these colo- 
nies, and such is now the necessity which constrains them to 
alter their former systems of government. The history of the 
present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries 
and usurpations, all having, in direct object, the establishment 
of an absolute tyranny over these States. To prove this, let 
facts be submitted to a candid world: 

He has refused his assent to laws the most wholesome and 
necessary for the public good. 

lie has forbidden his Governors to pass laws of immediate 
and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation 
till his assent should be obtained ; and, when so suspended, he 
has utteily neglected to attend to them. 

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of 
large districts of people unless those people would relinquish 
the right of representation in the legislature — a right inestim- 
able to them, and formidable to tyrants only. 

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, 
uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of thair public 
records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance 
with his measures. 

He has dissolved representative hou es repeatedly for oppos- 
ing, v/ith manly firmness, his invasions on the rights of the 
people. 

He has refused, for a long time after such dissolutions, to 
sause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, 
/ncapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large 
for their exercise, the State remaining, in the meantiine, ex- 



DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. 



posed to all the danger of invasion from without, and convul- 
sions wilhin. 

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these 
States ; for that purpose, obstructing the laws for naturaliza- 
tion of foreii ners ; refusing to pass others to encourage their 
emigration hither, and raising the conditions of new appro- 
priations of lands. 

He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refus- 
ing his assent to laws for estabhshing judiciary powers. 

He has made judges dependent on his will alone for the 
tenure of their offices and the amount and payment of their 
salaries. 

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither 
swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their sub- 
stances. 

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies, 
without the consent of our legislature. 

He has affected to render the military independent of, and 
superior to, the civil power. 

He has combined, with others, to subject us to a jurisdiction 
foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; 
giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation: 

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us; 

For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment, for 
any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of 
these States ; 

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world ; 

For imposing taxes on us without our consent ; 

For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of trial by 
jury. 

For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended 
offenses. 

For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neigh- 
boring province, establishing therein an arbitary government^ 
and enlarging its boundaries, so as to render it at once an ex- 
ample and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute 
rule into these colonies ; 

For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable 



6 DECLARATION OP INDEPENDENCE. 

laws, and altering, fundamentally, the powers of our govern- 
ments ; 

For suspending our own legislature, and declaring them- 
selves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases 
whatsoever. 

He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of 
his protection, and waging war against us. 

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coast, burnt our 
towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. 

He is, at this time, transporting large armies of foreign mer- 
cenaries to complete the works of death, desolation, and ty- 
ranny, already begun, with circumstances of cruelty and per- 
fidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally 
unworthy the head of a civilized nation. 

He has constrained our fellow-citizens, taken captive on the 
high seas, to bear arms against their country, to become the 
executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves 
by their hands. 

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has 
endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the 
merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare is an 
undistinguished destruction, of all ages, sexes, and conditions. 

In every stage of these oppressions, we have petitioned for 
redress, in tliemost humble terms ; our repeated petitions have 
been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose 
character is thus marked by every act which may define a ty- 
rant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. 

Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British breth- 
ren. We have warned them, from time to time, of attempts 
made by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdic- 
tion over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances 
of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed 
^o their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured 
them, by the ties of our common kindred, to disavow the^e 
usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections 
and c )rrespondence. They, too, have been deaf to the voice 
of justice and consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce 
in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold 



DECLARATION OP INDEPENDENCE. 



•them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war — in 
peace, friends. 

We, therefore, the representatives of the UNITED STATES 
OF AMERICA, in GENERAL CONGRESS assembled, ap^ 
pealing to the Supreme Judge of the World for the rectitude 
•of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the 
good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, 
That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, 
Free and Independent States; that they are absolved from all 
allegiance to the British crown, and that all political connec- 
tions between them and the State of Great Britain, is, and 
ought to be, totally dissolved ; and that, as FREE AND 
INDEPENDENT STATES, they have full power to levy 
war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, 
and to do all other acts and things which INDEPENDENT 
STATES may of right do. And for the support of this Declara- 
tion, with a firm reliance on the protection of DIVINE PROV- 
IDENCE, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our 
fortunes, and our sacred honor.

-:0: 



We, the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect 

Union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the 
common defense, promote the general welfare, and eecure the blessings 
of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish thia 
Constitution for ^he United States of America. 

ARTICLE I. 

Section 1. All the legislative powers herein granted shall 
be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall con- 
sist of a Senate and Uouse of Representatives. 

Sec. ^. The House of Eepresentatives shall be composed 
of members chosen every second year by the people of the 
several Stages ; and the electors in each State shall have the 
qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous 
branch of the State Legislature. 

No person shall be a Representative who shall not have at- 
tained to the a8;e of twenty-five years, and been seven years a 
citizen of the* United States, and who shall not, when elected, 
be an inhahilADt of that State in which he shall be chosen. 

Representatives and direct taxes shall be apportioned among 
the several States which may be included within this Union, 
according to their respective numbers, which shall be deter- 
mined by addir^g to the whole number of free persons, includ- 
ing those bound to service for a term of years, and excluding 
Indians not taxed, three-fifths of all other persons. The actual 
enumeration shaU be made within three years after the first 
meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within 

(9) 



10 CONSTITUTION OP THE 

every subsequent term often years, in such manner as they shall 
by law direct. The number of Kepresentatives shall not ex- 
•ceed one for every thirty thousand, but each State shall have 
at least one Representative ; and until such enumeration shall 
be made, the State of New Hampshire shall be entitled to 
choose three, Massacliusetts eight, Rhode laSand and Provi- 
dence Plantations one, Connecticut five. New York six. New 
Jersey four, Pennsylvania eight, Delaware one, Maryland six,

Election to fill such vacancies. 

The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and 
other officers ; and shall have the sole power of impeachment. 

Sec. 3. The Senate of the United States shall be composed 
of two Senators from each State, chosen by the Legislature 
thereof, for six years ; and each Senator shall have one vote. 

Immediately after they shall be assembled in consequence 
of the first election, they shall be divided as equally as may 
be into three classes. The seats of the Senators of the first 
class shall be vacated at the expiration of the second year, of 
the second class at the expiration of the fourth year, and of 
the third class at the expiration of the sixth year, so that one- 
third may be chosen every second year ; and if vacancies hap- 
pen by resignation, or otherwise, during the recess of the 
Legislature of any State, the Executive thereof may make 
temporary appointments until the next meeting of the Legis- 
lature, which shall then fill such vacancies. 

No person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to 
the age of thirty years, and been nine years a citizen of the 
United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an inhabi- 
tant of that State for which he shall be chosen. 

The Vice President of the United States shall be President 
of the Senate, but shall have no vote, unless they be equally 
divided.

ident pro tempore^ in the absence of the Vice-President, or 
when he shall exercise the office of President of the United 
States. 



UNITED STATES. 11 



The Senate shall have the sole power to try all impeach- 
ments. When sitting for that purpose, they shall be on oath 
or affirmation. When the President of the United States is 
being tried, the Chief Justice shall preside ; and no person 
ehall be convicted without the concurrence of two-thirds of 
the members present. 

Judgment in cases of impeachment shall not extend further 
than to removal from office, and disqualification to hold and 
enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United 
States; but the party convicted shall nevertheless be liable 
and subject to indictment, trial, judgment and punishment, 
according to law. 

Sec. 4. The times, places, and manner of holding elections 
for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each 
State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may, at any 
time, by law make or alter such regulations, except as the 
places of choosing Senators. 

The Congress shall assemble at least once in every year, and 
such meeting shall be on the first Monday in December, unless 
they shall by law appoint a difierent day. 

Sec. 5. Each House shall be the judge of the elections, re- 
turns, and qualifications of its own members, and a majority 
of each shall constitute a quorum to do business ; but a smaller 
number may adjourn from day to day, and may be authorized 
to compel the attendance of absent members, in such manner 
and under such penalties as each House may provide. 

Each House may determine the Kules of its Proceedings, 
punish its members for disorderly behavior, and with the con- 
currence of two-thirds, expel a member. 

Each House shall keep a Journal of its Proceedings, and 
from time to time publish the same, excepting such parts as 
may, in their judgment, require secrecy; and the yeas and 
nays of the members of either House on any question shall, 
at the desire of one-fifth of those present, be entered on the 
journal. 

Neither House, during the session of Congress, shall, with- 
out the consent of the other, adjourn for more than three days, 
nor to any other place than that in which the two Houses shall 
be sitting. 

Sec. 6. The Senators and Representatives shall receive a 
compensation for their services, to be ascertained by law and 



12 CONSIITUTION OF TEE 



paid out of the treasury of the United States. They shall in 
all cases, except treason, felony, and breach of the peace, be 
privileged from arrest during their attendance at the session 
of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from 
the same ; and for any speech or debate in either House, they 
shall not be questioned in any other place. 

No Senator or Representative shall, during the time for 
which he was elected, be appointed to any civil office under 
the authority of the United States, which shall have been cre- 
ated, or the emoluments whereof shall have been increased 
during such time, and no person holding any office under the 
United States shall be a member of either House during his 
continuance in office. 

Sec. 7. All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the 
House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or 
concur with amendments as on other bills. 

Every bill which shall have passed the House of Represen- 
tatives and the Senate, shall, before it becomes a law, be pre- 
sented to the President of the United States : If he approve, 
he shall sign it; but if not, he shall return it, with his objec- 
tions, to that House in which it shall have originated, who 
shall enter the objections at large on their Journal, and pro- 
ceed to reconsider it. If, after such reconsideration, two- thirds 
of that House shall agree to pass the bill, it shall be sent, to- 
gether with the objections, to the other House, by which it 
shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two-thirds 
of that House, it shall become a law. But in all such cases 
the votes of both Houses shall be determined by yeas and 
nays, and the names of persons voting for and against the bill 
shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively. 
If any bill shall not be returned by the President within ten 
days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to 
him, the same shall be a law, in like manner as if he had signed 
it, unless the Congress, by their adjournment, prevent its re- 
turn, in which case it shall not be a law. 

Every order, resolution, or vote to which the concurrence of 
the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary 
(except on a question of adjournment) shall be presented to 
the President of the United States ; and before the same shall 
take effect, shall be approved by him ; or, being disapproved 
by him, shall be repassed by two-thirds of the Senate and 



UNITED STATES. 13 



House of Representatives, according to the rnies and limita- 
tions prescribed in the case of a bill. 

Sec. 8. The Congress shall have power —

welfare of the United States: but all Duties, Imposts and Ex-

ARTICLE II. 

Section 1. The Executive Power shall be vested in a Pres-

States, shall be appointed an elector. 

[The electors shall meet in their respective States, and vote

taken by States, the representation from each Siate having 
one vote. A quorum for this purpose shall consist of a mem- 
ber or members from two-thirds of the States, and a majority 
of all the States shall be necessary to a choice. In every case, 
after the choice of the President, the person having tlie great- 
est number of votes of the electors shall be the Vice President. 
But if there should remain two or more who have equal votes, 
the Senate shall choose from them by ballot the Vice-Presi- 
dent.*] 

The Congress may determine the time of choosing the elec- 
tors, and tho day on which they shall give their votes ; which 
day shall be the same throughout the United States. 

No person, except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the 
United Slates at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, 
shall be eligible to tho ofSce of President; neither shall any 
person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained 
to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen years a resi- 
dent within the United States. 

In case of the removal of the President from office, or of his 
death, resignation or inability to discharge the powers and

EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION. 



-:0:- 



WhereaSy On the twenty-second day of September, in the 
year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two, 
a proclamation was issued by the President of the United 
States, containing among other things the following, to-wit : 

That, on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord, 
one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held 
as slaves within any State, or designated part of a State, the 
people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United 
States, shall be then, henceforth and forever free, and the 
Executive Government of the United States, including the 
military and naval authorities thereof, will recognize and 
maintain the freedom of such persons, or any of them, in any 
efforts they may make for their actual freedom. 

That the Executive will, on the first day of January afore- 
said, by proclamation, designate the States and parts of 
States, if any, in which the people therein respectively shall 
then be in rebellion against the United States, and the fact 
that any State, or the people thereof, shall on that day be in 
good faith represented in the Congress of the United States by 
members chosen thereto, at elections wherein a majority of 
the qualified voters of such States shall have participated, 
shall, in the absence of strong countervailing testimony, be 
deemed conclusive that such State and the people thereof are 
not then in rebellion against the United States. 

Now, therefore, I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the 
United States, by virtue of the power in me vested as Com- 
mander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, 
in time of actual armed rebellion against the authority and 
Government of the United States, and as a fit necessary war 
measure for suppressing said rebellion, do, on this first day of 
January, in the year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred 
and sixty-three, and in accordance with my purpose so to do, 
publicly proclaimed for the full period of one hundred days 

(54) 



EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION. 65 

from the day of the first above-mentioned order, and desig- 
nate, as the States and parts of States wherein the people 
thereof respectively are this day in rebellion againt the 
United States, the following to-wit: Arkansas, Texas, Louisi- 
ana, except the parishes of St. Bernard, Plaquemines, Jeflfer- 
8on, St. John, St. Charles, St. James, Ascension, Assumption, 
Terre Bonne, Lafourche, St. Mary, St. Martin and Orleans, in- 
cluding the city of New Orleans. Mississippi, Alabama, Flor- 
ida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia, 
•except the forty-eight counties designated as West Virginia, 
and also the counties of Berkeley, Accomac, Northampton. 
Elizabeth City, York, Princess Ann, and Norfolk, including 
the cities of Norfolk and Portsmouth, and which excepted 
parts are, for the present, left precisely as if this proclamation 
were not issued. 

And by virtue of the power, and for the purpose aforesaid, 
I do order and declare that all persons held as slaves within 
said designated States and parts of States are, and hencefor- 
ward, shall be free ; and that the Executive Government of the 
United States, including the military and naval authorities there- 
of, will recognize and maintain the freedom of said persons. 

And I hereby enjoin upon the people so declared to be free 
to abstain from all violence, unless in necessary self-defense ; 
and I recommend to them that, in all cases, when allowed, 
they labor faithfully for reasonable wages. 

And I further declare and make known that such persons of 
suitable condition will be received into the armed service of 
the United States, to garrison forts, positions, stations, and 
other places, and to man vessels of all sorts in said service. 

And upon this, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, 
warranted by the Constitution upon military necessity, I in- 
voke the considerate judgment of mankind and the gracious 
favor of Almighty God. 

In witness whereof 1 have hereunto set my hand and caused 
the seal of the United States to be affixed. 

Done at the City of Washington, this first day of January,

POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



-:o:- 



PLATFORM OF THE BRECKINRIDGE PARTY OF 1860. 

Resolved^ That the platform adopted by the Democratic, 
party at Cincinnati be affirmed, with the following explana- 
tory resolutions : 

1. That the government of a territory organized by an act 
of Congress is provisional and temporary, and during its exis- 
tence all citizens of the United States have an equal right ta 
settle with their property in the territory, without their rights,, 
either in person or property, bemg destroyed by congressional 
or territorial legislation. 

2. That it is the duty of the Federal Government, in all its 
departments, to protect the rights of persons and property in 
the territories, and wherever else its constitutional authority 
extends. 

3. That when the settlers in a territory, having an adequate 
population, form a State Constitution, the right of sovereignty 
commences, and being consummated by their admission inta 
the Union, they stand on an equality with the people of other 
States, and a State thus organized ought to be admitted inta 
the Federal Union, whether its constitution prohibits or rec- 
ognizes the institution of slavery. 

4. That the Democratic party are in favor of the acquisi- 
tion of Cuba, on such terms as shall be honorable to ourselves' 
and just to Spain, at the earliest practicable moment. 

5. That the enactments of State Legislatures to defeat the 
faithful execution of the Fugitive Slave Law are hostile in 
character, subversive of the Constitution, and revolutionary 
in their effect. 

6. That the Democracy of the United States recognize it as 
an imperative duty of the government to protect the natural- 

(56> 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 57 



ized citizen in all his rights, whether in home or in foreign 
lands, to the same extent as its native born citizens. 

Whereas, One of tho greatest ne<3essities of the age, in a 
political, commercial, postal, and military point of viev/, is a 
speedy communication between the Pacific and Atlantic 
coasts ; therefore, be it resolved, 

7. That the National Democratic party do hereby pledge 
themselves to use every means in their power to secure the 
passage of some biil, to the extent of the Constitutional au- 
thority by Congress, for the construction of a railroad to the 
Pacific Ocean at the earliest practicable moment. 



PLATFORM OF THE DOUGLAS PARTY OF 1860. 

Resolved^ That we, the Democracy of the Union in Conven- 
tion assembled, hereby declare our affirmation of the resolu- 
tions unanimously adopted and declared as a platform of prin- 
ciples by the Democratic Convention at Cincinnati, in tho 
year 1856, believing that Democratic principles are unchanga- 
ble in their nature when applied to the same subject matter,. 
and we recommend as our only further resolutions the follow- 
ing: 

That inasmuch as differences of opinion exist in the Demo- 
cratic party as to the nature and extent of the powers of a 
Territorial Legislature, and as to the powers and duties of Con- 
gress, under the Constitution of the United States, over the 
institution of slavery in the territories ; 

Resolved^ That the Democratic party will abide by the de- 
cision of the Supreme Court of the United States over the in- 
stitution of slavery in the territories. 

Resolved^ That it is the duty of the United States to afford 
ample and complete protection to all its citizens, at home or 
abroad, and whether native or foreign born. 

Resolved^ That one of the necessities of the age, in a mili- 
tary, commercial, and postal point of view, is a speedy com- 
munication between the Atlantic and Pacific States, and the 
Democratic party pledge such constitutional enactment as 
will insure the construction of a railroad to the Pacific coast 
at the earliest practical period. 



68 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



Resolved^ That the Democratic party are in favor of the ac- 
quisition of the Island of Cuba, on such terms as shall be hon- 
orable to ourselves and just to Spain. 

Resolved^ That the enactments of State Legislatures to de- 
feat the faithful execution of the Fugitive Slave Law are hos- 
tile m character, subversive to the Constitution, and revolu- 
tionary in their effect. 

.Resolved^ That it is in accordance with the Cincinnati Plat- 
form, that during the existence of Territorial Governments, 
the measure of restriction, whatever it may be, imposed by 
the Federal Constitution on the power of the Territorial Leg- 
islature over the subject of the domestic relations, as the same 
has been or shall hereafter be decided by the Supreme Court 
of the Qnited States, should be respected by all good citizens, 
and enforced with promptness and fidelity by every branch of 
the General Government. 



THE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM OF 1860. 

Resolved^ That we, the delegated representatives of the Re- 
publican electors of the United States, in Convention assem- 
bled, in the discharge of the duty we owe to our constituents 
and our country, unite in the following resolutions : 

1. That the history of the nation during the last four years 
has fully established the propriety and necessity of the organ- 
ization and perpetuation of the Republican party, and that the 
causes which called it into existence are permanent in their 
nature, and now, more than ever, demand its peaceful and 
constitutional triumph. 

2. That the maintenance of the principles promulgated in 
the Declaration of Independence, and embodied in the Federal 
Constitution, that " all men are created equal ; that they are 
endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, 
among which are those of life, liberty and the pursuit of happi- 
ness, and that Governments are instituted among men to 
Becure the enjoyment of these rights, deriving their just power 
from the consent of the governed" — are essential to the pres- 
ervation of our republican institutions, and that the Federal 
Constitution, the rights of the States, and the union of the 
States, must and shall be preserved. 



POLITICAL PLATFOKMS. ^9 



3 That to the union of the states this n at ion owes i ts unpre- 
cedented increase in population, its surprising developments 
of material resources; its rapid augmentation of wea Ih; its 
happiness at home and its honor abroad; and we ho d m 
abhorrence all schemes for disunion, come from whatever 
source they may; and we congratulate the country that no 
Eepublican member of Congress has uttered or countenanced 
the threats of disunion as often made by the Democratic mem- 
bers of Congress, without rebuke and with applause from their 
polftical associates ; and we denounce those threats of disunion 
in case of a popular overthrow of their ascendency, as denymg 
the vital principles of a free Government, and as an avowal of 
contemplated treason which it is the imperative duty of an 
indignant people sternly to rebuke and forever silence. 

4 That the maintenance inviolate, of the rights of the 
States, and especially of each State, to order and control its 
own domestic institutions according to its own judgment ex- 
clusively, is essential to that balance of power on which the 
perfection and endurance of our political fabric depends ; and 
we denounce the lawless invasion by armed force of the soil 
of any State or Territory, no matter under what pretext, as one 
of the gravest of crimes. 

5 That the present Democratic Administration has far ex- 
ceeded our worst apprehensions in the measureless subserviency 

to the exactions of a sectional interest, as especially evinced 
in its desperate exertions to force the infamous Lecompton 
Constitution upon the protesting people of Kansas, construing 
the relation between master and servant to '"jo'^^ ^^/^'L";/: 
ified property in persons ; in its attempted ^^I'^^'^'^^'^'J^^'g 
where, on land and sea, through the intervention of Congress 
and of the Federal Courts, of the extreme pretensions of a 
purely local interest; and in its general and unvarying abuse 
of the power entrusted to it by a confiding people. 

6. That the people justly view with alarm the reckless e^. 
travasance which pervades every department of the Federal 
Snment. That a return to riglit economy and accounta 
bility is indispensible to arrest the plunder of he public 
treasury by favored partisans, while the recen startling devel- 
opment's of frauds and corruption at.tlie Federa^me rpoj. 
show that m entire change of administration is imperatively 
demaiaded. 



60 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



7. That the new dogma that the Constitution of its own 
force carries slavery into any or all the Territories of the 
United States, is a dangerous political heresy, at variance with 
the explicit provisions of that instrument itself, with cotempo- 
raneous exposition, and with legislative and judicial prece- 
dents, that it is revolutionary in its tendency and subversive 
of the peace and harmony of the country. 

S. That the nominal condition of all the territory of the 
United States is that of freedom; that as our Republican fath- 
ers, when they had abolished slavery in all our national terri- 
tory, ordained that no person should be deprived of life, liberty 
Or property without due process of law, it becomes our duty 
b}^ legislation, whenever such legislation is necessary, to 
maintain this provision of the Constitution against all attempts 
to violate it ; and we deny the authority of Congress, or a Ter- 
ritorial Legislature, or of any individual, to give legal existence 
to slavery in any Territory of the United States. 

9. That we brand the recent re-opening of the African Slave 
Trade, under the cover of our national flag, aided by perver- 
sions of judicial power, as a crime against humanity, and a 
burning shame to our country and age; and we call upon 
Congress to take prompt and efficient measures for the total 
and final suppression of that exercrable traffic. 

10. That in the recent vetoes by their Federal Governors 
of the acts of the Legislatures of Kansas and Nebraska, pro- 
hibiting slavery in these Territories, we find a practical 
illustration of the boasted Democratic principles of non-inter- 
vention and Popular Sovereignty, embodied in the Kansas- 
Nebraska bill, and a demonstration of the deception and fraud 
involved therein. 

11. That Kansas should, of right, be immediately admitted 
as a State under the Constitution recently formed and adopted 
by her people, and accepted by the House of Representatives. 

12. That while providing revenue for the support of the 
General Government, by duties upon imports, sound policy 
requires such an adjustment of these imports as to encourage 
the development of the industrial interests of the whole 
country, and we commend that policy of National Exchange 
which secures to the working men liberal wages, agriculture 
remunerative prices, to merchants and manufacturers an ade-

quale reward for their skill, labor and enterprise, and to the 
nation commercial prosperity and independence. 

13. That we protest against any sale or alienation to others 
of the public lands held by actual settlers, and against any 
view of the free homestead policy, which regards the settlers 
as paupers or suppliants for public bounty, and we demand 
the passage by Congress of the complete and satisfactory 
homestead measure which has already passed the House. 

14. That the National Republican party is opposed to any 
change in our naturalization laws, or any State Legislation, by 
which the rights of citizenship hitherto accorded to immigrants 
from foreign lands shall be abridged or impaired, and in favor 
of giving a full and efficient protection to the rights of all 
classes of citizens, whether native or naturalized, both at 
home and abroad. 

15. That appropriations by Congress for river and harbor 
improvements of a national character, is required for the ac- 
commodation and security of an existing commerce, or au- 
thorized by the Constitution and justified by the obligation 
of the Government to protect the lives and property of its 
citizens. 

16. That a railroad to the Pacific ocean is imperatively de- 
manded by the interests of the whole country ; and that the 
Federal Government ought to render immediate and efficient 
aid in its construction, and that preliminary thereto, a daily 
overland mail should be promptly established. 

17. Finally, having thus set forth our distinctive principles 
and views, we invite the co-operation of all citizens, however 
difi'ering in other questions, who substantially agree with us, 
in their affirmance and support. 



PLATFORM OF THE NATIONAL CONSTITUTIONAL PARTY OF 

1860. 

The Union, the Constitution and the Laws. 



62 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



UNION PLATFORM, ADOPTED AT BALTIMORE, JUNE 8, 1864. 

Iiesolved, Th»at it is the highest duty of every American 
citizen to maintain against all its enesnies, the integrity of the 
Union, and the paramount authority of the Constitution and 
laws of the United States, and that, laying all political opin- 
ions aside, we pledge ourselves, as Union men, animated by a 
common sentiment, and aiming at a common object, to da 
everything in our power to aid the Government in quelling, 
by force of arms, the rebellioa now raging against its author- 
ity, and bringing to the punishment due to their crimes, the 
rebels and traitors arrayed against it. 

Resolved^ That we approve the determination of the Gov- 
ernment of the United States not to compromise with rebels 
or to offer any terms of peace, except such as may be based 
upon an unconditional surrender of their hostility, &c., and a 
return to their just allegiance to the Constitution and laws of 
the United States, and that we call upon the Government to 
maintain this position, and to prosecute the war with the ut- 
most possible vigor to the complete suppression of the rebel- 
lion, in full reliance upon the selfsacriiices, the patriotism^ 
the heroic valor, and the undying devotion of the Americaa 
people to their country and its free institutions. 

Resolved^ That slavery was the cause, and now constitutes' 
the strength of the rebellion, and that as it mu&t be always 
and everywhere hostile to the principles of Republican Gov- 
ernments, justice and the national safety demand its utter and 
complete extirpation from the soil of the Ropublic, and that 
we uphold and maintain the acts and proclamations by which, 
the Government, in its own defence, has aimed a death blow 
at this gigantic evil. We are in favor, furthermore, of such 
an amendment to the Constitution, to be made by the people 
in conformity with its provisions, as shall terminate and for- 
ever prohibit the existence of slavery within the limits of the 
jurisdiction of the United States. 

Resolved^ That the thanks of the American people are due 
to the soldiers and sailors of the army and navy, who have 
periled their lives in defence of their country, and in vindi- 
cation of the honor of the flag ; that the nation owes them 
some permanent recognition of their patriotism and their 
valor, and ample and permanent provision for those of their 
survivors who have received disabling and honorable wounds 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 63 



in the service of their country, and that the memories of those 
who have fallen in its defense, shall be held in grateful and 
everlasting remembrance. 

Resolved^ That we approve and applaud the political wis- 
dom, the unselfish patriotism and unswerving fidelity to the 
Constitution and the principles of American liberty with 
which Abraham Lincoln has discharged, under circumstances 
of unparalelled difficuly, the great duties and responsibilities 
of the Presidential office; that we approve and endorse, as 
demanded by the emergency and essential to the preservation 
of the nation, and as within the Constitution, the measures 
and acts which he has adopted to defend the nation against its 
open and secret foes; especially the Proclamation of Emanci- 
pation, and the employment, as Union soldiera, of men hereto- 
fore held in slavery, and that we have full confidence in his 
determination to carry these and all other Constitutional 
measures, essential to the salvation of the country, into full 
and complete effect. 

Resolved^ That we deem it essential to the general welfare, 
that harmony should prevail in the national councils, and we 
regard as worthy of public confidence and official trust those 
only who cordially endorse the principles proclaimed in these 
resolutions, and which should characterize the administration 
of the Government. 

Resolved^ That the Government owes to all men employed 
in its armies, without distinction of color, the full protection of 
the laws of war, and any violation of these laws and of the 
usages of civilized nations in the time of war, by the rebels 
now in arms, should be made the subject of full and prompt 
redress. 

Resolved^ That the foreign immigration, which in the past 
has added so much to the wealth and development of resources 
and increase of power to this nation, the asylum of the oppress- 
ed of all nations, should be fostered and encouraged by a 
liberal and just policy. 

Resolved^ That we are in favor of the speedy construction of 
the railroad to the Pacific. 

Resolved^ That the national faith is pledged for the redemp- 
tion of the public debt and must be kept inviolate; and that 
for this purpose we recommend economy and rigid responsi- 
bilities in the public expenditures, and a vigorous and just 



64 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



system of taxation ; that it is the duty of every loyal State to 
sustain the use of the national currency. 

Resolved^ That we approve the position taken by the Gov- 
ernment, that tiie people of the United States can never regard 
with indilTerence the attempt of European x)ower to overthrow 
by force, or to supplant by fraud, the institutions of any Ee- 
publican government on the Western Continent, and that they 
will view with extreme jealousy, as menacing to the peace and 
independence of this our country, the oiTrDrts of any such power 
to obtain new footholds for monarchial governments sustained 
by a foreign military force in near proximity to the United 
States. 



FREMONT PLATFORM, ADOPTED AT CLEVELAND, MAY 31, 1864. 

1. That the Federal Union must be preserved. 

2. That the Constitution and laws of the United States 
must be observed and obeyed. 

3. That the rebellion must be suppressed by the force of 
arms, and without compromise. 

4. That the rights of Free Speech, Free Press, and the 
Habeas Corpus must be held inviolate, save in districts where 
martial law has been proclaimed. 

5. That the rebellion has destroyed slavery, and the Fed- 
eral Constitution should be amended to prohibit its re-estab- 
lishment. 

6. That the right for asylum, except for crime, and subject 
to law, is a recognized principle— a principle of x\merican lib- 
erty ; that any violation of it must not be overlooked, and 
must not go unrebuked. 

7. That the National policy known as the Monroe doctrine 
has become a recognized principle, and that the establishment 
of an anti-republican form of government on this continent by 
a foreign power can not be tolerated. 

8. That the gratitude and support of the nation is due to 
the faithful soldiers, and the earnest leaders of the Union army 
and navy, for their heroic achievements and valor in defense 
of our imperiled country and of civil liberty. 

9. That the one term policy for the Presidency adopted by 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 65 



the people is strengthened by the existing crisis, and shall be 
maintained by ^constitutional amendments. 

10. That the Constitution shall be so amended that the 
President and Vice President shall be elected by a direct vote 
of the people. 

11. That the reconstruction of the rebellious States belongs 
to the people through their representatives in Congress, and 
not to the Executive. 

12. That the confiscation of the lands of the rebels and 
their distribution among the soldiers and actual settlers is a 
measure of justice ; that integrity and economy are demanded 
at all times in the measures of the government, and that now 
the want of this is criminal. 



NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM OF 1864. 

Besolved^ That in the future, as in the past, we will adhere 
with unswerving fidelity to the Union under the Constitution 
as the only solid foundation of our strength, security and hap. 
piness as a people, and as a framework of government equally 
conducive to the welfare and prosperity of all the States, both 
Northern and Southern. 

Resolved^ That this Convention does explicitly declare, as 
the sense of the American people, that after four years of fail- 
ure to restore the Union by experiment of war, during which, 
under the pretence of military necessity or war power higher 
than the Constitution, the Constitution itself has been disre- 
garded in every part, and public liberty and private right alike 
trodden down, and the material prosperity of the country es- 
sentially impaired, justice, humanity, liberty and the public 
welfare demand that immediate efforts be made for a cessation 
of hostilities with a view to an ultimate convention of the 
States, or other peaceable means, to the end that at the earli- 
est practical moment peace may be restored on the basis oi 
the Federal Union of the States. 

Resolved^ That the direct interference of the military au- 
thorities of the United States in the recent elections held in 
Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri and Delaware was a shameful 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



violation of the Constitution, and a repetition of such acts inu 
the approaching election will be held as revolutionary, and re- 
sisted with all the means and power under our control. 

Resolved^ That the aim and object of the Democratic party- 
is to preserve the Federal Union and the rights of the States 
unimpaired, and they herebj' declare that they consider that 
the administrative usurpation of extraordinary and dangerous, 
powers not granted by the Constitution, the subversion of tha 
civil by military law in States not in insurrection, the arbi- 
trary military arrest, imprisonment, trial and sentence of 
American citizens in States where the civil law exists in full 
force, the suppression of freedom of speech and of the press,, 
the denial of the right of asylum, the open and avowed right 
of disregard of State rights, the employment of unusual test 
oaths, and the interference with, and denial of the right of the- 
people to bear arms in their defense, is calculated to prevent 
a restoration of the Union and a perpetuation of the Govern- 
ment deriving its just powers from the consent of the gov- 
erned. 

Resolved^ That the shameful disregard of the Administra- 
tion to its duty in respect to our fellow-citizens who now are,, 
and long have been, prisoners of war in a suffering condition,, 
deserves the severest reprobation on the score alike of public 
policy and common humanity. 

Resolved^ That the sympathy of the Democratic party is. 
heartily and earnestly extended to the soldiery of our army 
and sailors of our navy who are and have been in the field and- 
on the sea, under the flag of their country, and in the event 
of its attaining power, they will receive all the care, protec- 
tion and regard that the brave soldiers and sailors of the Re- 
public have so nobly earned. 



THE CHICAGO PLATFOEM, 1868. 

The following is the platform as adopted: 

The National Republican Party of the United States, as- 
sembled in National Convention, in the city of Chicago, on- 
the 20lh day of May, 1838, make the following declaration of 
principles: 

1. We congratulate the country on the assured success of 



POLinCAL PLATFORMS. 67 

the reconstruction policy of Congress, as evinced by the 
adoption, in the majority of the States lately in rebellion, of 
constitutions securing equal civil and political rights to all; 
and it is the duty of the Government to sustain those consti- 
tutions and to prevent the people of such States from being 
remitted to a state of anarchy. 

2. The guarantee by Congress of equal suffrage to all loyal 
men at the South was demanded by every consideration of 
public safety, of gratitude, and of justice, and must be main- 
tained, while the question of suffrage in all the loyal States 
properly belongs to the people of those Slates. 

3. We denounce all forms of repudiation as a national 
crime, and the national honor requires the payment of the 
public indebtedness in the utmost good faith to all creditors 
at home and abroad, not only according to the letter but th& 
spirit of the laws under which it was contracted. 

4. It is due to the labor of the nation that taxation should 
be equalized and reduced as rapidly as the national faith will 
permit. 

6. The national debt, contracted as it has been for the 
preservation of the Union for all time to come, should be ex- 
tended over a fair period for redemption; and it is the duty of 
Congress to reduce the rate of interest thereon whenever it 
can be honestly done. 

6. That the best policy to diminish our burden of debt is 
to so improve our credit that capitalists will seek to loan us 
money at lower rates of interest than we now pay, and must 
continue to pay, so long as repudiation, partial or total, open 
or covert, is threatened or suspected. 

7. The Government of the United States should be admin- 
istered with the strictest economy, and the corruptions which 
have been so shamefully nursed and fostered by Andkew 
Johnson call loudly for radical reform. 

8. We professedly deplore the untimely and tragic death 
of Abraham Lincoln, and regret the accession of Andcew 
Johnson to the l^residency, who has acted treacherously to 
the i)eople who elected him, and the cause he was pledged to 
support — who has usurped high legislative and judicial func- 
tions — who has refused to execute the laws — who has used his 
high office to induce other officers to ignore and violate the 
laws — who has employed his executive powers to render inse- 



68 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



cure the property, the peace, liberty, and life of the citizen — 
who has abused the pardoning power — who has denounced 
the National Legislature as unconstitutional — persistently and 
corruptly resisted, by every measure in his power, every 
proper attempt at the reconstruction of the States lately in 
rebellion — who has perverted the public patronage into an 
engine of wholesale corruption, and who has been justly im* 
peached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and properly pro- 
nounced guilty thereof by the vote of thirty-five Senators. 

9. The doctrine of Great Britain and other European Pow- 
ers, that because a man is once a subject he is always so, 
must be resisted at everj'' hazard by the United States as a 
relic of the feudal times, not authorized by the law of nations, 
and at war with our>national honor and independence. Nat- 
uralized citizens are entitled to be protected in all their 
rights of citizenship as though they were native born ; and 
no citizen of the United States, native or naturalized, must 
be liable to arrest and imprisonment by any foreign power for 
acts done or words spoken in this country ; and if so arrested 
and imprisoned it is the duty of the Government to interfere 
in his behalf. 

10. Of all who were fai^^hful in the trials of the late war 
there were none entitled to more especial honor than the 
brave soldiers and seamen who endured the hardships of cam- 
paign and cruise, and imperiled t'leir lives in the service of 
the country. The bounties and pensions provided by the laws 
for these brave defenders of the nation are obligations never 
to be forgotten. The widows and orphans of the gallant 
dead are the wards of the people, a sacred legacy bequeathed 
to the nation's protecting care. 

11. Foreign emigration, which in the past has added so 
much to the wealth, development, and resources and incresse 
of power to this nation, the asylum of the oppressed of all 
nations, should be fostered and encouraged by a liberal and 
just policy. 

12. This Convention declares itself in sympathy with all 
the oppressed people which are struggling for their rights. 

The following resolutions were also adopted unanimously, 
and are added to the declaration of principles : 

Rtsolved^ That we highly commend the spirit of magnan- 
imity and forgiveness with which the men who have served in 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 69 



the rebellion, but now frankly and honestly co-operate with 
us in restoring the peace of the country and reconstructing 
the Southern State governments upon the basis of impartial 
justice and equal rights, are received back into the com- 
munion of the loyal people. And we favor the removal of 
the disqualifications and restrictions placed upon the late 
rebels in the same measure as the spirit of loyalty will direct, 
and as may be consistent with the safety of the loyal people. 
, Ees-olved^ That we recognize the great principles laid down 
in the immortal Declaration of Independence as the true 
foundation of Democratic government; and we hail with 
gladness every effort toward making these principles a living 
reality on every inch of American soil. 



DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM OF 1868. 

The Democratic party, in National Convention assembled, 
reposing its trust in the intelligence, patriotism, and discrimi- 
nating justice of the people, standing upon the Constitution as 
the foundation and limitation of the powers of the Government 
and the guarantee of the liberties of the citizen, and recog- 
nizing the questions of slavery andsecession as having been set- 
tled for all time to come by the war or the voluntary action of 
the Southern States in Constitutional Conventions assembled, 
and never to be revived or re-agitated, do, with the return of 
peace, demand: 

1. The immediate restoration of all the States to their 
rights in the Union under the Constitution of the civil Gov- 
ernment and in the American people. 

2. Amnesty for all past political offenses ; the regulation of 
the elective franchise in the States by their citizens. 

3. Payment of the public debt of the United States as rap- 
idly as practicable, all money drawn from the people by taxa- 
tion, except so much as is requisite for the necessities of the 
Government economically administered being honesfly ap- 
plied to such payment, and where the obligations of the Gov- 
ernment do not expressly state upon their face or the law 
under which they were issued does not provide that they shall 
be paid in coin they ought, in right and justice, be paid in the 
lawful money of the United States. 



•^lO POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



4. Equal taxation of every species of property according 
to the value ; reducing Government bonds and other public 
securities. 

5. One currency for the Government and the people, the 
laborer and the ofBlce-holder, pensioner and the soldier, the 
producer and the bondholder. 

6. Economy in the administration or the Government ; the 
reduction of the standing army and navy ; the abolition of the 
Freedmen's Bureau, and all political instrumentalities de- 
signed to secure negro supremacy; simplification of the system 
and discontinuance of inquisitorial modes of assessing and 
collecting internal revenue, that the burden of taxation may 
be equalized and lessened, and the credit of the Government 
and the currency made good ; the repeal of all enactments for 
enrolling the State militia into a national force in time of 
peace ; and a tariff for revenue upon foreign imports and such 
equal taxation under the internal revenue laws as will afford 
incidental protection to domestic manufactures as well, with- 
out impairing the revenue, impose the least burden upon and 
best promote and encourage the great industrial interests of 
the country. 

7. Reform of abuses in the Administration ; the expulsion 
of corrupt men from office ; the abrogation of useless offices ; 
the restoration of the rightful authority to and the independ- 
ence of the Executive and Judicial Departments of the Gov- 
ernment ; the subordination of the military to the civil power, 
to the end that the usurpation of Congress and the despotism 
of the sword may cease. 

8. Equal rights and protection for naturalized and native 
born citizens at home and abroad ; the assertion of American 
nationality, which will command the respect of foreign powers 
furnish an example and encouragement to people struggling 
for national integrity, constitutional liberty, and individual 
rights ; and the maintenance of the rights of naturalized citi- 
zens against the absolute doctrine of immutable allegiance 
and the claims of foreign powers to punish them for alleged 
crimes committed beyond their jurisdiction. In demanding 
these measures and reforms, we airaign the radical party for 
its disregard of right and the unparalleled oppression and 
tyranny which have marked its career, after the most solemn 
and unanimous pledge of both houses of Congress to prose- 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 71 

cute the war exclusively for the maintenauce of the Govern- 
ment and the preservation of the Union under the Constitu- 
tion. It has repeatedly violated that most sacred pledge 
Tinder which was rallied that noble volunteer army which car- 
ried our flag to victory. Instead of restoring the IFnion it has, 
so far as it is in its power, dissolved it, and subjected ten States 
in time of peace to military despotism and negro supremacy. 
It has nullified there the right of trial by jury ; it has abolished 
the writ of habeas corpus, that most sacred writ of liberty ; it 
lias overthrown the freedom of speech and of the press ; it has 
substituted arbitrary seizures and arrests, military trials, se- 
cret star chambers, and inquisitions for constitutional tribu- 
•nals; it has disregarded, in time of peace, the right of tho 
people to be free from search and seizure ; it has entered the 
post-office and telegraph office, and even the private rooms of 
individuals and seized there their private papers and letters, 
without any specification or notice of affidavit, as required by 
the organic law. It has converted the American Capitol into 
a bastile; it has established a system of spies and official espion- 
age to which the constitutional monarchies of Europe 
never dare to resort. It has abolished the right of appeal on 
important constitutional questions to the supreme judicial 
tribunals, and threatens to curtail or destroy its original juris- 
diction, which is irrevocably vested by the Constitution : while 
the learned Chief Justice has been subjected to the most atro- 
cious calumnies merely because he would not prostitute his 
high office to the support of the false and partisan charges 
agains^; the President. Its corruption and extravagance have 
exceeded anything known in history, and by its frauds and 
monopolies it has nearly doubled the burden of the debt cre- 
ated during the war. It has stripped the President of his 
Constitutional power of appointment even of his own Cabinet. 
Under its repeated assaults the pillars of the Government are 
rocking to their base; and should it succeed in November 
next, and inaugurate its President, we will meet as a subjected 
and conquered people amid the ruins of liberty and the scat- 
tered fragments of the Constitution; and we do declare and 
resolve that ever since the people of the United Slates threw 
off all subjection to the British crown, the privilege and trust 
of suffrage have belonged to the several Srates, and have been 
granted, regulated, and controlled exclusively by the political 



73 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



power of each State resp€c4;ively, and any attempt by Con- 
gress, on any pretext whatever, to deprive any State of this 
right, or interfere with this exercise, is a flagrant usurpatioa 
of power which can find no warrant in the Constitution, and 
if sanctioned by the people will subvert our form of Govern- 
ment, and can only end in a single, centralized and consolidated 
Government, in which the separate existence of the States will 
be entirely absorbed, and an unqualified despotism then he 
established in i^Iace of a Federal Union of coequal States, and 
that we regard the reconstruction acts so called of Congress- 
such usurpations and unconstitutional, revolutionary and void; 
that our soldiers and sailors who carried the flag of our country^ 
to victory against a most gallant and determined foe must ever 
be gratefully remembered, and all the guarantees given in 
their favor must be faithfully carried into execution; that the 
public lands should be distributed widely among the people 
and should be disposed of either under the pre-emption of the 
homestead lands and sold in reasonable quantities, and to none 
but actual occupants, at the price established by the Govern- 
ment. Wben the grants of the public lands may be allowed 
necessary for the encouragement of important public improve- 
ments, the proceeds of the sale of such lands, and not the 
lands themselves, should be so applied ; that the President of 
the United States, Andrew Johnson, exercising the power of 
his high office in resisting the aggressions of Congress on the 
constitutional rights of the States and the people, is entitled 
to the gratitude of the whole American people, and on behalf 
of the Democratic party, we tender him our thanks for his 
patriotic efforts in that regard. 

Upon this platform the Democratic party appeal to every 
patriot, including all the conservative element, and all who 
desire to support the Constitution and restore the Union, for- 
getting all past differences of opinion, to unite with us in the 
present great struggle for the liberties of the people ; and that 
to all such, to whatever party they may have heretofore be- 
longed, we extend the right hand of fellowship, and hail all 
fluch co-operating with us as friends and brothers. 



POLITICAL PLA'TFORMS. 73 



KEPUBLICAN PLATFORM, 1872. 

The Republican party of the United States, assembled in 
national convention in the city of Philadelphia on tho 5ih and 
6th days of Jtune, 1872, again declares its faith, appeals to its 
history, and announces its position upon the questions before 
the country: 

1. During eleven years of supremacy it has accepted with 
grand courage the solemn duties of the time. It suppressed 
a gigantic rebellion, emancipated four millions of slaves, de- 
creed the equal citizenship of all, and established universal 
suflfrage. Exhibiting unparalelled magnanimity, it criminally 
punished no man for political offenses, and warmly welcomed 
all who proved loyalty by obeying the laws and dealing justly 
with their neighbors. It has steadily decreased with firm 
hand the resultant disorders of a great war, and initiated a 
wise and humane policy toward the Indians. The Pacific rail- 
road and similar vast enterprises have been generously aided 
and successfully conducted, the public lands freely given to 
actual settlers, immigration protected and encouraged, and a 
full acknowledgement of the naturalized citizen's rights se- 
cured from European Powers. A uniform national currency 
has been provided, repudiation frowned down, the national 
credit sustained under the most extraordinary burdens, and new 
bonds negotiated at lower rates. The revenues have been care- 
fully collected and honestly appU^d. Despite annual large 
reductions of the rates of taxation, the public debt has been re- 
duced during General Grant's Pi*esidency at the rate of a hun- 
dred millions a year, great financial crises have been avoided, 
and peace and plenty prevail throughout the land. Menacing 
foreign difficulties have been peacefull}^ and honorably com- 
posed, and the honor and power of the nation kept in high 
respect throughout the world. This glorious record of the 
past is the party's best pledge for the future. We believe 
the people will not intrust the Government to any party or 
combination of men composed chiefly of those who have re- 
sisted every step of this benificent progress. 

2. The recent amendments to the national Constitution 
should be cordially sustained because they are right, not 



V4 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 

merely tolerated because they are law, and should be carried 
out according to their spirit by appropriate legislation, the 
enforcement of which can safely be intrusted only to the 
party that secured those amendments. 

3. Complete liberty and exact equality in the enjoyment 
of all civil, political and public rights should be established 
and effectually maintained throughout the Union by efficient 
and appropriate State and Federal legisla^tion. Neither the 
law nor its administration should admit any discrimination in 
respect of citizens by reason of race, creed, color, or previous 
condition of servitude. 

4. The national Government should seek to maintain hon- 
orable peace with all nation , protecting its citizens every- 
where and sympathizing with all peoples who strive for greater 
liberty. 

5. Any system of the civil service under which the subor- 
dinate positions of the government are considered rewards for 
mere party zeal is fatally demoralizing, and we therefore favor 
a reform of the system by laws which shall abolish the evils 
of patronage and make honesty, efficiency, and fidelity the 
essential qualifications for public positions, without creating a 
life tenure of office. 

6. We are opposed to further grants of the public lands to 
corporations and monopolies, and demand that the national 
domain be set apart for free homes for the people. 

7. The annual revenue, after paying current expenditures, 
pensions, and the interest on the public debt, should furnish 
a moderate balance for the reduction of the principal, and 
that revenue, except so much as may be derived from a tax 
upon tobacco and liquors, should be raised by duties upon im- 
portations, the details of which should be so adjusted as to 
aid in securing remunerative wages to labor, and promote the 
industries, prosperity, and growth of the whole country. 

8. We hold in undying honor the soldiers and sailors whose 
valor saved the Union. Their pensions are a sacred debt of 
the nation, and the widows and orphans of those who died for 
their country are entitled to the care of a generous and grate- 
ful people. We favor such additional legislation as will ex- 
tend the bounty of the Government to all our soldiers and 



POIilTICAL PLATFORMS. 75 



sailors who were honorably discharged, and who in the line 
of duty became disabled, without regard to the length of ser- 
vice or the cause of such discharge. 

9. The doctrine of Great Britain and other European Pow- 
ers concerning allegiance — "once a subject always a subject" 
—having at last through the efforts of the Republican party 
been abandoned, and the American idea of the individual's 
right to transfer allegiance having been accepted by Euro- 
pean nations, it is the duty of our Government to guard with 
jealous care the rights of adopted citizens against the assump- 
tion of unauthorized claims by their former Governments, 
and we urge continued careful encouragement and protec- 
tion of voluntary immigration. 

10. The franking privilege ought to be abolished, and the 
way prepared for a speedy reduction in the rates of postage. 

11 Among the questions which press for attention is that 
which concerns the relations of capital and labor, and the 
Republican party recognizes the duty of so shaping legis- 
lation as to secure full protection an.d the amplest field for 
capital, and for labor, the creator of capital, the largest oppor- 
tunities and a just share of the mutual profits of these two 
great servants of civilization. 

12. We hold that Congress and the President have only 
fulfilled an imperative duty in their measures for the sup- 
pression of violent and treasonable organizations in certain 
lately rebellious regions, and for the protection of the ballot- 
box; and therefore they are entitled to the thanks of the 
nation. 

13. We denounce repudiation of the public debt, in any 
form or disguise as a national crime. We witness with pride 
the reduction of the principal of the debt, and the rates of in- 
terest upon the balance, and confidently expect that our ex- 
cellent national currency will be perfected by a speedy re- 
sumption of specie payment. 

14. The Eepublican party is mindful of its obligations to 
the loyal women of America for their noble devotion to the 
cause of freedom. Their admission to wider fields of useful- 
ness is viewed with satisfaction ; and the honest demand of 



76 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



any class of citizens for additional rights should be treated 
with respectful consideration. 

15. We heartily approve the action of Congress in extend- 
ing amnesty to those lately in rebellion, and rejoice in the 
growth of peace and fraternal feeling throughout the land. 

16. The Republican party proposes to respect the rights 
reserved by the people to themselves as carefully as the 
powers delegated by them to the State and to the Federal 
Government. It disapproves of the resort to unconstitutional 
laws for the purpose of removing evils, by interference with 
rights not surrendered by the people to either the State or na- 
tional Government. 

17. It is the duty of the General Government to adopt such 
measures as may tend to encourage and restore American 
commerce and ship-building. 

18. We believe that the modest patriotism, the earnest pur- 
pose, the sound judgment, the practical wisdom, the incor- 
ruptible integrity, and the illustrious services of Ulysses S. 
Grant have commended him to the heart of the American 
people, and with him at our head we start to day upon a new 
march to victory. 

19. Henry Wilson, nominated for the Vice-Presidency, 
known to the whole land from the early days of the great 
struggle for liberty as an indefatigable laborer in all cam- 
paigns, an incorruptible legislator and representative man of 
American institutions, is worthy to associate with our great 
leader and share the honors which we pledge our best efforts 
to bestow upon them. 



NATIONAL LIBERAL REPUBLICAN CONVENTION, 1872. 
ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE OP THE UNITED STATES. 

The Administiation now in power has rendered itself guilty 
of wanton disregard of the laws of the land, and of usurping 
powers not granted by the Constitution ; it has acted as if the 
laws had binding force only for those who are governed, and 
not for those who govern. It has thus struck a blow at the 
fundamental principles of constitutional government and the 
liberties of the citizen. 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 77 



The President of the United States has openly used the 
powers and opportunities of his high office for the promotion 
of personal ends. 

He has kept notoriously corrupt and unworthy men in 
places of power and responsibility, to the detriment of the 
public interest. 

He has used the public service of the Government as a 
machinery of corruption and personal influence, and has inter- 
fered with tyrannical arrogance in the political affairs of 
States and municipalities. 

He has rewarded with influential and lucrative offices men 
who had acquired his favor by valuable presents, thus stimu 
latin g the demoralization of our political life by his conspicu- 
ous example. 

He has shown himself deplorably unequal to the task im- 
posed upon him by the necessities of the country, and culpa- 
bly careless of the responsibilities of his high office. . 

The partizans of the Administration, assuming to be the 
Republican party and controlling its organization, have at- 
tempted to justify such wrongs and palliate such abuses to 
the end of maintaining partisan ascendency. 

They have stood in the way of necessary investigations and 
indispensable reforms, pretending that no serious fault could 
be found with the present administration of public affairs, 
thus seeking to blind the eyes of the people. 

They have kept alive the passions and resentment of the 
late civil war, to use them for their own advantage , they 
have resorted to arbitrary measures in direct conflict with the 
organic law, instead of appealing to the better instincts and 
latent patriotism of the Southern people by restoring to them 
these rights, the enjoyment of which is indispensable to a 
successful administration of their local affairs, and would tend 
to revive a patriotic and hopeful national feeling. 

They have degraded themselves and the name of their party, 
once justly entitled to the confidence of the nation, by a base 
sycophancy to the dispenser of executive power and patron- 
age, unworthy of republican freemen ; they have sought to 
silence the voice of just criticism, and stifle the moral sense 
of the people, and to subjugate public opinion by tyrannical 
party discipline. 

They are striving to maintain themselves in authority for 



78 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



selfish ends by an unscrupulous use of the power which right- 
fully belongs to the people, and should be employed only in 
the service of the country. 

Believing that an organization thus led and controlled can 
no longer be of service to the best interests of the Republic, 
we have resolved to make an independent appeal to the sober 
judgment, conscience, and patriotism of the American people.. 

RESOLUTIONS. 

We, the Liberal Republicans of the United States, in 
National Convention assembled at Cincinnati, proclaim the 
following principles as essential to just government: 

1. We recognize the equality of all men before the law^ 
and hold that it is the duty of government, in its dealings 
with the people, to mete out equal and exact justice to all, of 
whatever nativity, race, color, or persuasion, religious or 
political. 

2. We pledge ourselves to maintain the Union of these 
States, emancipation and enfranchisement, and to oppose any 
re-opening of the questions settled by the thirteenth, four- 
teenth, and fifteenth amendments of the Constitution. 

3. We demand the immediate and absolute removal of all 
disabilities imposed on account of the rebellion, which was 
finally subdued seven years ago, believing that universal am- 
nesty will result in complete pacification in all sections of 
the country. 

4. Local self-government, with impartial suffrage, will guard 
the rights of all citizens more securely than any centralized 
power. The public welfare requires the supremacy of the civil 
over the military authority, and the freedom of person under 
the protection of the Itdbeas corpus. We demand for the indi- 
vidual the largest liberty consistent with public order, for the 
Slate self-government, and for the nation a return to the 
methods of peace and the constitutional limitations of power. 

5. The civil service of the Government has become a mere 
instrument of partisan tyranny and personal ambition, and an 
object of selfish greed. It is a scandal and reproach upon free 
institutions, and breeds a demoralization dangerous to the 
perpetuity of republican government. We therefore regard 
a thorough reform of the civil service as one of the most press- 
ing necessities of the hour ; that honesty, capacity, and fidelity

constitute the only valid claims to public employment ; that 
the offices of the Government cease to be a matter of arbitrary 
favoritism and patronage, and that public station shall become 
again a post of honor. To this end it is imperatively required 
that no President shall be a candidate for re election. 

6. We demand a system of Federal taxation which shall 
not unnecessarily interfere with the industry of the people^ 
and which shall provide the means necessary to pay the ex- 
penses of the Government, economically administered, the 
pensions, the interest on the public debt, and a moderate 
reduction annually of the principal thereof; and recognizing 
that there are in our midst honest but irreconcilable differ- 
ences of opinion with regard to the respective systems of 
protection and free trade, we remit the discussion of the sub- 
ject to the people in their congressional districts and the 
decision of Congress thereon, wholly free from executive inter- 
ference or dictation. 

7. The public credit must be sacredly maintained, and we 
denounce repudiation in every form and guise. 

8. A speedy return to specie payments is demanded alike 
by the highest considerations of commercial morality and 
honest government. 

9. We remember with gratitude the heroism and sacrifices 
of the soldiers and sailors of the Republic, and no act of ours- 
shall ever detract from their justly earned fame or the full 
rewards of their patriotism. 

10. We are opposed to all further grants of lands to rail- 
roads or other corporations. The public domain should be 
held sacred to actual settlers. 

11. We hold that is the duty of the Government in its inter- 
course with foreign nations to cultivate the Iriendships of 
peace by treating with all on fair and equal terms, regarding 
it alike dishonorable either to demand what is not right or 
submit to what is wrong. 

12. For the promotion and success of these vital principles 
and the support of the candidates nominated by this conven- 
tion we invite and cordially welcome the co-operation (f all 
patriotic citizens, without regard to previous political affili- 
ations.

NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION, 1872. 

We, the Democratic electors of the United States in Con- 
vention assembled, do present the following principles, 
already adopted at Cincinnati, as essential to just government. 

1. We recognize the equality of all men before the law, 
and hold that it is the duty of Government in its dealings 
with the people to mete out equal and exact justice to all, of 
whatever nativity, race, color, or persuasion, religious or 
political. 

2. We pledge ourselves to maintain the union of these 
States, emancipation, and enfranchisement, and to oppose any 
re-opening of the questions settled by the thirteenth, four- 
teenth and fifteenth amendments to the Constitution. 

3. We demand the immediate and absolute removal of all 
disabilities imposed on account of the rebellion, which was 
finally subdued seven years ago, believing that universal am- 
nesty will result in complete pacification in all sections of 
the country. 

4. Local self-government, with impartial suffrage, will 
guard the rights of all citizens more securely than any cen- 
tralized power. The public welfare requires the supremacy of 
the civil over the military authority, and freedom of person 
under the protection of the habeas corpus. We demand for 
the individual the largest liberty consistent with public 
order ; for the State self-government, and for the nation a re- 
turn to the methods of peace and the constitutional limita- 
tio'ns of power. 

5. The civil service of the Government has become a mere 
instrument of pardsan tyranny and personal ambition, and 
an object of selfish greed. It is a scandal and reproach upon 
free institutions and breeds a demoralization dangerous to 
the perpetuity of republican government. We therefore re- 
gard a thorough reform of the civil service as one of the most 
pressing necessities of the hour ; that honesty, capacity, and 
fidelity constitute the only valid claim to public employ- 
ment; that the ofiices of the government cease to be a mat- 
ter of arbitrary favoritism and patronage, and that public 
station become again a post of honor. To this end it is im- 
peratively required that no President shall be a candidate, for 
re-election.

6. We demand a system of Federal taxation which shall 
not unnecessarily interfere with the industry of the people, 
and which shall provide the means necessary to pay the ex- 
penses of the Government, economically administered, the 
pensions, the interest on the public debt, and a moderate re-

of the soldiers and sailors of the Republic, and no act of ours 
shall ever detract from their justly earned fame for the full 
reward of their patriotism. 

10. We are opposed to all further grants of lands to rail- 
roads or other corporations. The public domain should be 
held sacred to actual settlers. 

11. We hold that it is the duty of the Government in its 
intercourse with foreign nations to cultivate the friendships 
of peace, by treating with all on fair and equal terms, regard- 
ing it alike dishonorable either to demand what is not right 
or to submit to what is wrong. 

12. For the promotion and success of these vital princi- 
ples, and the support of the candidates nominated by this 
convention, we invite and cordially welcome the co-operation 
of all patriotic citizens, without regard to previous political 
affiliations. 



NATIONAL LABOK KEFORM CONVENTION, 1872. 

We hold that all political power is inherent in the people, 
and free government founded on their authority and estab- 
lished for iheir beneAt; that all citizens are equal in political 



82 POLITICAL PLATFOKMS. 



rights, entitled to the largest religious and political liberty 
compatible with the good order of society, as also the use and 
enjoyment of the fruits of their labor and talents ; and no man 
or set of men is entitled to exclusive separable endowments 
and privileges, or immunities from the Government, but in 
consideration of public services; and any laws destructive of 
these fundamental principles are without moral binding force, 
and should be repealed. And believing that all the evils re- 
sulting from unjust legislation now affecting the industrial 
classes can be removed by the adoption of the principle con- 
tained in the following declaration : Therefore, 

Resolved^ That it is the duty of the Government to estab- 
lish a just standard of distribution of capital and labor by 
providing a purely national circulating medium, based on the 
faith and resources of the nation, issued directly to the people 
without the intervention of any system of banking corpora- 
tions, which money shall be legal tender in the payment of all 
debts, public and private, and interchangeable at the option 
of the holder for Government bonds bearing a rate of interest 
not to exceed 3-65 per cent., subject to future legislation by 
Congress. 

2. That the national debt should be paid in good faith, ac- 
cording to the original contract, at the earliest option of the 
Government, without mortgaging the property of the people 
or the future exigencies of labor to enrich a few capitalists at 
home and abroad. 

3. That justice demands that the burden of Government 
should be so adjusted as to bear equally on all classes, and 
that the exemption from taxation of Government bonds bear- 
ing extravagant rates of interest is a violation of all just prin- 
ciples of revenue laws. 

4. That the public lands of the United States belong to the 
people and should not be sold to individuals nor granted to 
corporations, but should be held as a sacred trust for the ben- 
efit of the people, and should be granted to landless settlers 
only, in amounts not exceeding one hundred and sixty acres 
of land. 

5. That Congress should modify the tariff so as to admit 
free such articles of common use as we can neither produce 
nor grow, and lay duties for revenue mainly upon articles of 
luxury and upon such articles of manufacture as will, we hav- 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



ing the raw materials, assist in further developing the re- 
sources of the country. 

6. That the presence in our country of Chinese laborers, 
imported by capitalists in large numbers for servile use, is an 
evil, entailing want and its attendant train of misery and crime 
on all classes of the American people, and should be prohib- 
ited by legislation. 

7. That we ask for the enactment of a law by which all 
mechanics and day-laborers employed by or on behalf of the 
Government, whether directly or indirectly, through persons, 
firms, or corporations, contracting with the State, shall conform 
to the reduced standard of eight hours a day, recently adopted 
by Congress for national employes, and also for an amendment 
to the acts of incorporation for cities and towns by which all 
laborers and mechanics employed at their expense shall con- 
form to the same number of hours. 

8. That the enlightened spirit of the age demands the abo- 
lition of the system of contract labor in our prisons and other 
reformatory institutions. 

9. That the protection of life, liberty, and property are the 
three cardinal principles of Government, and the first two are 
more sacred than the latter ; therefore money needed for 
prosecuting wars should, as it is required, be assessed and col- 
lected from the wealthy of the country, and not entailed as a 
burden on posterity. 

10. That it is the duty of the Government to exercise its 
power over railroads and telegraph corporations, that they 
shall not in any case be privileged to exact such rates of 
freight, transportation, or charges, by whatever name, as may 
bear unduly or unequally upon the producer or consumer. 

11. That there should be such a reform in the civil service 
of the national Government as will remove it beyond all part- 
isan influence, and place it in the charge and under the direc- 
tion of intelligent and competent business men. 

12. That as both history and experience teaches us that 
power ever seeks to perpetuate itself by every and all means, 
and that its prolonged possession in the hands of one person 
is always dangerous to the interests of a free people, and 
believing that the spirit of our organic laws and the stability 
and safety of our free institutions are best obeyed on the one 



84: POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



hand, and secured on the other, by a regular constitutional 
change in the chief of the country at each election : therefore, 
we are in favor of limiting the occupancy of the presidential 
chair to one term. 

13. That we are in favor of granting general amnesty and 
restoring the Union at once on the basis of equality of rights 
and privileges to all, the impartial administration of justice 
being the only true bond of union to bind the States together 
and restore the Government of the people. 

14. That we demand the subjection of the military to the 
civil authorities, and the confinement of its operations to 
national purposes alone. 

15. That we deem it expedient for Congress to supervise 
the patent laws, so as to give labor more fully the benefit of 
its own ideas and inventions. 

16. That fitness, and not political or personal considera- 
tions, should be the only recommendation to public office, 
either appointive or elective, and any and all laws looking to 
the establishment of this principle are heartily approved.

AN ACT to regulate the sale of intoxicating liquors; to provide against 
evils resulting from any sale thereof; to furnish remedies for damages 
suffered by any person in consequence of such sale; prescribing penal 
ties; to repeal all laws contravening tke provisions of this act, and 
declaring an emergency. 

[Approved February 27, 1873.] 

Section 1. Be it enacted ly the General Assembly of the 
State of Indiana^ That it shall be unlawful for any person or 
persons, by himself or agent, to sell, barter, or give away for 
any purpose of gain, to any person whomsoever, any intoxi- 
cating liquors to be drunk in, upon, or about the building or 
premises where the liquor is sold, bartered, or given away, or 
in any room, building, or premises adjoining to or connected 
with the place where the liquor is sold, bartered, or given 
away for the purpose of gain, until such person or persons 
shall have obtained a permit therefor from the board of com- 
missioners of the county where he resides, as hereinafter 
provided. 

Sec. 2. Any person desiring a permit to sell intoxicating 
liquors to be drunk on the premises, shall file in the office of 
the auditor of the proper county, not less than twenty days 
before the first day of the term of any regular session of the 
board of commissioners of such county, a petition in writing, 
stating therein the building or number, street, ward or town- 
ship wherein the permission is asked to be granted, praying 
for such permit, and certifying that the applicant is a resident 
voter of such county, and a citizen of the State of Indiana, and

wherein the applicant proposes to sell intoxicating liquors; 
such petition shall be kept on file by the auditor until the 
next ensuing regular session of the board of commissioners, 
when it shall be presented to the board for their action. The 
board shall examine such petition, and if satisfied the same is 
in proper form, and that it has been signed as hereinbefore 
required, shall direct a permit to be issued under the hand 
and seal of said auditor, and delivered to the person named in 
such permit, upon his complying with the provisions of this 
act and paying the costs of filing and recording said petition 
and costs of issuing said permit. 

Sec. 3. Before the granting of a permit by tne board of 
commissioners, the applicant shall cause to be executed and 
properly acknowledged before an officer authorized to take 
acknowledgment of deeds, a bond payable to the State of 
Indiana, in the sum of three thousand dollars, with good free- 
hold security thereon of not less than two persons, to be ap- 
proved by the board of commissioners, and conditioned for the 
payment of any and all fines, penalties and forfeitures incurred 
by reason of the violation of any of the provisions of this act; 
and conditioned further, that the principal and sureties therein 
named shall be jointly and severally liable, and shall pay to

persons, either in person or property, or means of support, by 
reason of any sale or sales of intoxicating liquors to any person, 
by the person receiving such permit or by any of his agents 
or employees. Separate suits may be brought on said bond 
by the person or persons injured, but the aggregate amount 
recovered thereon shall not exceed the said sum of three 
thousand dollars, and in case the amount of said bond shall be 
exhausted by recoveries thereon, a new bond in the same pen- 
alty and with like sureties shall be filed within ten days, and 
in default thereof said permit shall be deemed to be revoked. 
Such bond, after its approval by the board of commissioners,

the use of any person or persons, or their legal representatives, 
who may be injured or damaged by reason of any sale or sales 
of intoxicating liquors by the person receiving the permit or 
by any of his agents or employees. The record of the bond

have if offered in evidence. 

Sec. 4. The whole number of votes cast for candidates for 
Congress at the last preceding Congressional election in the 
township, and the whole number of votes cast for councilnian 
or trustee in any ward or town, at the last preceding munici- 
pal election in any city or town in which the applicant for 
permit desires to sell said intoxicating liquors, shall be 
deemed to be the whole number of legal voters of such ward, 
town or township, a majority of whose names shall be signed 
to the petition of such applicant ; and it is further provided, 
that any person not a legal voter in said ward, town or town- 
ship, who shall sign said petition, or any person who signs the 
name of any person other than himself, without the permis- 
sion previously obtained of said person to so sign his name, 
shall be fined not less than fifty nor more than one hundred 
dollars for each signature so made. 

Sec. 5. No permit, as herein provided for, shall be granted 
for a longer or shorter time than one year. It shall be the 
duty of the Auditor of the county to furnish the person to 
whom such permit is granted, a copy of the order of the Com- 
missioners granting the permit, which copy shall show in con- 
spicuous letters the date of the commencement of such 
permit, and of its expiration ; and it is further provided^ 
That such copy of the order of the Commissioners, certified 
by the Auditor, shall be hungup in a conspicuous place in the 
room where said liquor is sold, where the same may at all 
times be seen and read by any person desiring so to do. 
Should any person holding a permit be convicted of a viola- 
tion of any of the provisions of this act, such conviction shall 



68 THE BAXTER LIQUOR LAW. 

work a forfeiture of his permit, and of all rights thereunder; 
and no permit shall thereafter be granted to such person be- 
fore the expiration of five years from the date of such con- 
viction. 

Sec. 6. It shall be unlawful for any person, by himself, or 
agent, to sell, barter, or give intoxicating liquors to any 
minor, or to any person intoxicated, or to any person who is 
in the habit of getting intoxicated. 

Sec. 7. All places where intoxicating liquor is sold in viola- 
tion of this act, shall be taken, held, and declared to be com- 
mon nuisances; all rooms, taverns, eating-houses, bazaars, 
restaurants, drug stores, groceries, coffee-houses, cellars, or 
other places of public resort, where intoxicating liquors are 
sold in violation of this act, shall be shut up and abated as 
public nuisances, upon conviction of the keeper thereof, who 
shall be punished as hereinafter provided. 

Sec. 8. Any person or persons who shall by the sale of in- 
toxicating liquor, with or without permit, cause the intoxica- 
tion, in whole or in part, of any other person, shall be liable 
for and be compelled to pay a reasonable compensation to any 
person who may take charge of and provide for such intoxi- 
cated person, for every day he or she is so cared for, which 
sum may be recovered in an action of debt before any court 
having competent jurisdiction. 

Sec. 9. It shall be unlawful for any person to get intoxica- 
ted. A person found in a state of intoxication shall upon con- 
viction thereof, be fined in the sum of five dollars. Any 
person convicted of intoxication shall be required upon the 
trial to designate the person or persons from whom the liquor 
in whole or in part was obtained. In default of so designa- 
ting such person, he or she shall in addition to the fine above 
mentioned, and as a part of his or her punishment for the 
offense, be imprisoned in the county jail not less than one 
day nor more than ten days, at the discretion of the court. 

Sec. 10. A permit granted under this act shall not author- 
ize the person so receiving it to sell intoxicating liquors on

Fourth of July, nor upon any Thanksgiving day, nor upon any 
public holiday, nor between nine o clock p. m. and six o'clock 



THE BAXTER LIQUOR LAW. 89 

A. M.; and any and all sales made on any such day, or after 
nine o'clock on any evening, are hereby declared to be un- 
lawful, and upon conviction thereof, the person so selling 
shall be fined not less than five dollars nor more than twenty- 
five dollars for each sale made in violation of this section. 

Sec. 11. The bartering or giving away of intoxicating li- 
quors, or other shift or device to evade the provisions of this 
act, by any person or persons keeping liquors for sale, or by 
his agent or employee, at the place where the same are kept 
for sale, shall be deemed and held to be an unlawful selling 
or giving away for the purpose of gain within the provisions 
of this act. 

Sec. 12. In addition to the remedy and right of action pro- 
vided for in section eight of this act, every husband, wife, 
child, parent, guardian, employer, or other person who shall 
be injured in person or property, or means of support, by any 
intoxicated person, or in consequence of the intoxication, 
habitual or otherwise, of any person, shall have a right of ac- 
tion in his or her name, severally or jointly, against any per- 
son or persons who shall, by selling, bartering, or giving away 
intoxicating liquors have caused the intoxication, in whole or 
in part, of such person, and any person or persons owning, 
renting, leasing or permitting the occupation of any building 
or premises, and having knowledge that intoxicating liquor is 
to be sold therein, or having leased the same for other pur- 
poses, shall knowingly permit therein the sale of intoxicating 
liquor, or who having been informed that intoxicating liquor 
is sold therein that has caused, in whole or in part, the intoxi- 
cation of any person, who shall not immediately, after being 
so informed, take legal steps in good faith to dispossess said 
tenant or lessee, shall be liable jointly with the person selling, 
bartering or giving away intoxicating liquor as aforesaid, to 
any person or persons injured, for all damages, and for exem- 
plary damages ; Provided^ however, that execution on any 
such judgment shall first be levied on the property of the per- 
son selling, bartering or giving away such liquor, and in the 
event of a failure or insufficiency of such property to satisfy 
the judgment, then of the property of the other defendants. 
A married woman shall have the same right to bring suit and 
to control the same, and the ammount recovered as a femme 
sole^ and all damages recovered by a minor under this act 



90 THE BAXTER LIQUOR LAW. 

shall be paid either to such minor or to his or her parent, 
guardian or next friend, as the court shall direct. The unlaw-

" It is not easy to give an accurate and comprehensive defi- 
,nition of the science of geology. It is, indeed, not so much 
one science, as the application of all the physical sciences to 
the examination of the structure of the earth, the investiga- 
tion of the processes concerned in the production of that 
structure, and the history of their action. That this large 
view of geology is not only a true but a necessary one, is 
shown by the fact, that it was not until considerable advances 
had been made in all the physical sciences which relate di- 
rectly to the earth, that geology could begin to exist in any 
worthy form. It was not until the chemist was able to explain 
the nature of the mineral substances of which rocks are com- 
posed ; not till the geographer and meteorologist had explored 
the surface of the earth, and taught us the extent of land and 
water, and the powers of winds, currents, rains, glaciers, earth- 
quakes and volcanoes ; not until the naturalist had classified, 
named, and described the greater part of existing animals and 
plants, and explained their anatomical structure, and the laws 
of their distribution in space ;~that the geologist could, with 
any chance of arriving at sure and definite results, commence 
his researches into the structure and composition of rocks and 
the causes which produced them, or utilize his discoveries of 
the remains of animals and plants that are inclosed in them. 
He could not until then discriminate with certainty batween 
igneous and aqueous rocks, between living and extinct ani- 
mals, and was, therefore, unable to lay down any one of the foun- 
dations on which his own science was to rest." — Encyclopedia 
Britannica^ Sih edition^ vol. xv. 

If there is any one fact which the study of geology teaches 
more unmistakably than another, it is, that the matter com- 
posing the crust of the earth, from the time when it was first 
called into existence by the £at of the Creator to the present, 
has been subjected to an endless cycle of mutations. There

may have been periods of comparative rest and quiescence, 
but none of perfect stagnation and stability ; so that the pres- 
ent condition and configuration of the earth's surface may be 
considered as the last result of a series of cosmical changes, 
which commenced with the dawn of creation, and are con- 
tinuing on into the future. 

" Had the exterior crust of the earth been subjected to no 
modifying causes, the world would have presented the same 
appearance now as at the time of its creation. The distribu- 
tion of land and sea would have remained the same ; there 
would have been the same surface arrangement of hill, valley 
and plain, and the same unvarying aspects of animal and veg- 
etable existence. Under such circumstances, geology, instead 
of striving to present a consecutive history of change and 
progress, would have been limited to a mere description of 
permanently enduring appearances. The case, however, is 
widely different." There is no part of the present land-surface 
of the globe which has not at some time been covered by the 
ocean, while much of the present sea bottom has been in turn 
dry land. Many of the loftiest and most extensive ranges of 
mountains upon the globe — the Alps, the Andes, and the 
Himalayas — are of comparatively recent elevation (recent as 
compared with the White Mountains of New England, or the 
Appallachian chain of the Atlantic States); while the com- 
mencement of the existence of every animal and vegetable 
species at present found upon the earth was long subsequent 
to the existence of the myriad organisms, whose remains are 
now found fossil beneath its surface. 

The agencies which have produced, and are still tending to 
produce, changes in the constitution and structure of our 
planet, may be classified as follows : 1. Igneous agencies, or 
such as manifest themselves in connection with some deep- 
seated source of heat in the interior of the globe. 2. Aque- 
ous, or those arising from the action of the water. 3. Atmos- 
pheric, or those operating through the medium of the atmos- 
phere. 4. Organic, or those depending on animal and 
vegetable growth. 5. Chemical, or those resulting from the 
chemical action of substances on each other. — WelW lllus-

THE TEMPERATUKE OF THE EARTH. 

The following are some of the observations made most re- 
cently on this subject: In England, observations have been 
made in the vertical shafts of two very deep coal mines, viz., 
at Monkwearmoath, which is 1800 feet deep, and Dunkinfield^ 
which is upwards of 2000 feet deep, and in both cases the ob- 
servations were made while the workmen were sinking the 
shafts, and with every precaution against the influence of any 
^extraneous causes. The former gave an increase of 1 deg. of 
Fahrenheit for every sixty feet of depth, and the latter 1 deg. 
for about every seventy feet. The artesian well of Grenelle 
(Paris), is 1800 feet deep ; observations made by Arago, during 
the boring, showed that the average increase of temperature 
in this was 1 deg. for sixty feet. At Mordorff, Luxemburg, the 
depth of the artesian well is 2400 feet, and the increase in 
temperature 1 deg. for every fifty-seven feet. At the artesian 
well of New Seltzwork, in Westphalia, the depth is 2100 feet, 
and the increase 1 deg. for every fifty -five feet. At Louisville, 
Ky.,the depth of an artesian well, finished in 1859, is 2086 feet 
deep, and the average increase is 1 deg. for every sixty-seven 
feet below the first ninety feet from the surface. la the silver 
mine of Guanaxato, Mexico, 1713 feet deep, the increase is 1 
deg. for every forty-five feet. In the coal mines of Eastern 
Virginia, the increase is about 1 deg. for every sixty feet. 

VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS. 

One or two remarkable instances of volcanic eruptions may 
be briefly noticed. First, for duration and force wo may refer 
to that which took place in the island of Sumbawa (one of the 
Sunda Islands lying east of Java), in the year 1S15. It com- 
menced on the 5th of April, and did not entirely cease until 
July. Its influence (i. e. shocks, and the noise of the explo- 
isions) was perceptible over an area 1,800 miles in diameter, 
while within the range of its more immediate vicinity, embrac- 
ing a space of 400 miles, its efi'ects were most terrific. In Java, 
300 miles distant, it seemed to be awfully present. The sky 
was overcast at noonday with clouds of ashes, which the light 
of the sun was unable to penetrate, and fields, streets, and 
houses were covered with ashes to the depth of several inches. 
At Sumbawa itself, immense columns of flame appeared to 
burst forth from the top of the volcano, Tombora, and in a 



96 GEOLOGICAL ITEMS. 



short time the whole mountain appeared like a mass of liquid 
fire, which gradually extended in every direction. As the 
eruption continued, a darkness supervened, so profound as to 
obscure even the light of the flames ; showers of stones and 
ashes fell continuously over the whole island ; the sea rose 
twelve feet higher than it had ever been known to do before; 
and finally a whirlwind ensued, which tore up the largest trees, 
and carried them into the air, together with men, horses, cat- 
tle, and whatever else came within its influence. Of 12,000 
inhabitants in the vicinity only six are believed to have es- 
caped, and of some entire villages not even a vestige remained. 
In 1772, the Papandayang, one of the loftiest volcanic moun- 
tains in Java, after a short but severe eruption, suddenly fell 
in and disappeared in the earth, carrying with it about ninety 
square miles of territory. Forty villages were engulfed, or 
covered with ejected matter, at the same time, and nearly 
3,000 persons perished. — Wells^ Illustrated Geology- 

DESCRIPTIONS OF AN EARTHQUAKE. 

"A powerful eathquake," says Mr. Darwin, *'at once destroys 
the oldest associations ; the world, the very emblem of all that 
is solid, has moved beneath our feet like a crust over a fluid; 
one second of time has conveyed to the mind a strange idea of 
insecurity, which hours of reflection would never have created." 

"To man," says Humbolt, "the earthquake conveys an idea 
of some universal and unlimited danger. We may flee from 
the crater of a volcano in active eruption, or from a locality 
threatened by the approach of a lava stream ; but in an earth- 
quake, direct our flight whithersoever we will, we still feel as 
though we trod upon the very focus of destruction. Every 
sound — the faintest motion in the air — arrests our attention, 
and we no longer trust the ground on which we stand. Ani- 
mals, especially dogs and swine, participate in the same anxious 
disquietude ; and even crocodiles, in the rivers of South Amer- 
ica, which at other times are dumb, have been observed to 
quit the water and run, with loud cries, into the adjacent 
forests." 

AQUEOUS AND ATMOSPHERIC AGENCIES. 

The aqueous and atmospheric agencies most prominently 
concerned in producing geological changes, are rains^ and the 



GEOLOaiCAL ITEMS. 97 



gasses and moisture of the atynos2:>liere^ winds^ ice^ and snow^ 
^prings^ rivers^ loaves^ tides, and oceanio currents. 

The operation of water, acting mechanically, is, under all 
<jircum3ia5ices, to wear down the higher portions of the earth's 
crust, and transport the materials to lower localities — an ac- 
tion which obviously tends to reduce the whole surface to a 
smooih and uniform level. On the other hand, the operations 
of igneous agents — volcanoes, earthquakes, etc. — by breaking 
up and elevating the crust of the earth, tend to counteract the 
^qnaliziDg action of water and to produce that diversity of- 
eurfaco v/bich is indispensable to variety in both the vegetable 
and animal kingdoms. These two forces, therefore — the aque- 
ous and the igneous — may be considered as antagonistic to 
each other, and to them may be ascribed the principal modifi- 
cations which have taken place, and are still taking place, in 
the crust of the globe.— TT^/Z',? Illustrated Geology 

CORAL REEFS. 

"The ocean," says Mr. Darwin, 'throwmg its breakers on 
the outer shore, appears an invincible enemy, yet we see it re- 
sisted, and even conquered, by means which at first seem weak 
and ineilicient. No periods of repose are granted, and the 
heavy swell caused by the steady action of the trade wind 
never ceases. The breakers exceed in violence those of our 
temperate regions ; and it is impossible to behold them with- 
out feeling a conviction that rocks of granite or quartz would 
ultimately be demolished by such irresistable forces. Yet 
these low coral islands stand and are victorious, for here 
another power, antagonistic to the former, takes part in the 
contest. The organic forces separate the atoms of carbonate 
of lime, one by one, from the foaming breakers, and unite 
them into a symmetrical structure ; myriads of architects are 
at work day and night, month after month, and we see their 
soft and gelatinous bodies, through the agency of the vital 
laws, conqiiering the great mechanical power of the waves of 
the ocean, which neither the art of man nor the mechanical 
works of nature could successfully resist." The animals which 
produce coral are very simple, and resemble plants both in 
their figures and colors.

THE FIRST FORMED STRATIFIED ROCKS. 

The adoption of the theory, that our earth was once in a 
state of entire molten fluidity, involves the existence of a sub- 
sequent period, when its primeval crust had sufficiently cooled 
down to allow of the condensation of watery vapor and of the^ 
existence of a sea upon its surface. Whenever this happened, 
the eroding and destructive action of water must have imme- 
diately manifested itself, while the particles of the consolida- 
ted igneous crust, worn off by the action of waves, tides, and 
currents, and deposited as sediments, would naturally produce 
stratified formations. 

The internal heat of the earth at that period, however, must 
have continued to act with great intensity near the surface, 
and the strata first deposited, consequently, were, in all prob- 
ability, soon greatly metamorphosed, i. ^., remelted dowp to 
form igneous rocks, or converted into hard crystalline ^emi- 
igneous rocks, that retained, in part, their original lines of 
stratification. 

Whether any of these first formed stratified rocks are in ex- 
istence, and open to our inspection, it is impossible to affirm. 
Some geologists incline to the opinion that thej were entirely 
remelted, and are now represented by the older or funda- 
mental granites, which, in some instances, appear to have aft 
obscurely stratified structure. 

Be this as it may, it is, however, a matter of fact, that tha 
oldest rocks of which W3 have any knowledge, which exhibit 
evidence of a sediment iry origin, appear to have been formed 
under conditions analogous to those above supposed. Thus, 
they are all more or less crystalline and indurated ; their lines 
of stratification are indistinct, and often altogether oblitera- 
ted; and their whole aspect is very different from what is 
usually ascribed to rocks deposited in water. — WelW Illustra- 
ted Geology. 

FORMATION OF COAL. 

It is now universally admitted by geologists, that coal is a 
mass of compressed, altered, and mineralized vegetation, just 
as sandstone is consolidated sand, and the slate and shale con- 
solidated clay or mud. 

The evidence upon which the belief is founded may be 
briefly stated, as follows : 

Ist. The enormous profusion of fossil plants, in the form of 



GEOLOGICAL ITEMS. 99 



impressions of leaves, trunks, branches, and barks of tre^s, 
found in immediate connection with coal seams. 2d. Coal is 
composed of carbon, hydrosjen, and oxygen, the same ele- 
ments (tho'jgh difFering in proportion) which enter into the 
compositioK?* of planis. 3d. The substance of coal, when ex- 
amined under the microscope, affords unmistakable evidence 
of a vegetable (cellular) structure. 4th. All the stages of 
gradation f/etween perfect wood and perfect coal may be 
traced witlj the greatest certainty. 

But grao/mg the vegetable origin of coal, the question im- 
mediately suggests itself: Under what circumstances could 
60 great an amount of vegetable matter have ever accumu- 
lated ?— the magnitude of which may be realized in a degree, 
from the asserted fact " that all the forests of the United 
States, if gathered into one heap, would fail to furnish the ma- 
terials of a single coal seam equal to that of Pittsburg, Penn.*' 

Furthermore, coal is found stratified, laminated, and ex- 
tended, in horizontal beds, which often cover very large areas, 
with a nearly constant thickness — the great Pittsburg coal 
seam, above referred to for example, having a nearly uniform 
thickness of from eight to twelve feet, and is estimated to 
have once covered a surface of 90,000 square miles. Coal^ 
moreover, is ordinarily encased between beds of shale or 
sandstone, which bear evident proof of having been slowly 
deposited in quiet waters. In some coal fields, as many as 
seventy seams of coal, varying in thickness from a few inches 
to four, six, eight, ten, twelve, and twenty feet, occur thus in- 
terstratified with shales and sandstones ; and yet, notwith- 
standing these frequent alternations of material, the purity of 
the coal is such, that it rarely contains any considerable ad- 
mixture of mud, sand, or other foreign mineral substances. 

In explanation of these phenomena, various hypotheses 
have been suggested, but the general opinion of the best ge- 
ologists of the present day is, that the vegetable matter con- 
stituting coal, must, in the main, have grown and accumu- 
lated in immense jungles and peat mosses for many years ; 
that the land must have then sunk, and become the basin of a 
lake or estuary, into which rivers carried mud and sand ; these^ 
covering the vegetable matter, gradually consolidated into 
shales and sandstones, while the vegetable matter itself un- 
derwent the process of mineralization, and was converted into

coal. This being done, it is supposed that the area of deposit 
was again elevated, so as to become once more the scene of 
luxuriant vegetation ; then again submerged, and overlaid by 
new depc jf sandstone and shale ; then once more elevated 
and cov with plants, and again submerged; and these al- 
ternat' • of submergence and elevations are presumed to 
have - jn place as often as there are beds of coal in any par- 
ticular coal field. — WelPs Illustrated Oeology, 

CLIMATIC CONDITIONS OF THE CARBONIFEROUS ERA. 

There is one circumstance in connection with the formation 
of coal which has given rise to a vast amount of ingenious 
speculation and hypotheses, viz : the apparent sameness of 
external conditions over such extensive areas of the earth as 
are now occupied by our known coal fields. Thus, the same 
gigantic ferns and club-mosses are found alike in the coal 
fields of America, Europe, Melville Island, Greenland, and 
Australia— regions widely separated, and at once tropical, 
temperate, and frigid. To account for this luxuriance and 
homogeneity of vegetable growth various causes have been 
suggested, as the earth's central heat, a change in the earth's 
axis, a larger percentage of carbonic acid in the atmosphere, 
the planetary system moving through warmer regions of space^ 
and the like ; but thus far geologists have arrived at no definite 
conclusions on the subject. 

Deposits of carbonaceous matter have occurred at almost 
every period of the earth's historv, as is evidenced by the fact 
that thin seams of coal are found in almost all the geological 
systems ; but the coal beds which admit of economical work- 
ing are almost exclusively confined to the carboniferous sys- 
tem. The only exceptions are a few coal fields belonging to 
the Oolitic or Jurassic system, which, in Virginia and some 
other localities, admit of profitable mining. It seems, there- 
fore, certain, that whatever may have been the conditions 
which allowed of so abundant a terrestrial vegetation at this 
particular epoch of the earth's history, those conditions ceased 
about the time when the era of the Carboniferous system ter- 
minated. A high temperature was evidently not one of these 
conditions, for there are evidences of it afterwards; and some 
authorities incline to the belief that the superabundance of 
carbonic acid gas, which is supposed to have existed during 



OBOLOaiCAL ITEMS. 101 



this era, was expended before its close. "There can be no 
doubt that the infusion of a large amount of this gas into the 
atmosphere at the present day would be attended by precisely 
the same circumstances as in the time of the coal epoch. The 
higher forms of animal life would not have a place on earth. 
Vegetation would be enormous; and coal strata would be 
formed from the vast accumulations of woody matter, which 
would gather in every favorable locality." 

DISTRIBUTION OF COAL. 

Coal is very widely distributed over the world, although 
some countries are more highly favored than others. Avail- 
able coal fields occur in Great Britain ; in Spain, France, Bel- 
gium and Middle Europe ; in India, China and Japan ; in the 
islands of the Indian Archipelago ; in Australia and New 
Zealand ; in South America, Chili and Peru ; in Greenland, 
Melville Island and in British America. But nowhere is the 
coal formation more extensively displayed than in the United 
States, and nowhere are its beds of greater thickness, more 
convenient for working, or of more valuable quality. 

The eastern half of the continent of North America exhibits 
five great coal fields, extending from Newfoundland to Arkan- 
sas ; 1. The iirst^ or most eastern, is that of the British Prov- 
inces, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick. Its 
area is probably about 9,000 square miles, though only one 
tenth of this surface appears to be underlaid by productive 
coal seams. 2. The second^ or Great Appalachian coal field, 
extends from Pennsylvania and Ohio to near Tuscaloosa, in 
the interior of Alabama. It is about 875 miles long, and is es- 
timated to contain 70,000 square miles. 3. A tliird., and 
smaller coal field, occupies the center of the State of Michi- 
gan ; it covers an area of about 15,000 square miles, but is not 
very productive. 4. A fourth great coal field is situated in 
the States of Kentucky, Indiana and Illionois. Its area is es- 
timated at 50,000 square miles. 5. The Hftli^ and most western, 
occurs in Iowa, Missouri and Arkansas, and occupies an area 
of about 57,000 square miles. Besides these great deposits, 
coal is also found in New England, Kansas, Nebraska, and 
Texas. 

The aggregate space underlaid by the coal fields of North 
America amounts to at least 200,000 square miles, or to more

than twenty times the area which includes all the known coal 
deposits of Europe. — Wells^ Geology, 

MISCELTiANEOUS. 

The mimber of sx)ecies of animals that now inhabit the globe 
is about 250,000. The number of fossil species of animals and 
plants cannot be reliably estimated, but it is safe to say that 
the number of the dijfferent extinct species that have been 
found in fossil state exceeds many times the number of all the 
different species now living. 

Geologists claim four distinct periods or ages of the earth's 
history. Beginning at the oldest, they are called or named, 
First, the Azoic period, or period deficient of the evidence 
of life ; Second, Paleozoic, or period of ancient life ; Third, the 
Mesozoic, or period of middle life ; Fourth^ or last period, 
called Cainozoic. This period includes the Post Tertiary, or 
recent system of rocks or period of recent life. 

A picture of the Azoic period has thus been imagined by 
Hugh Miller. "During the early part of the Azoic period we 
may imagine," he says, " a dark atmosphere of steam and va- 
por, which, for age after age conceals the face of the sun, and 
through which the moon or stars never penetrates; oceans of 
thermal waters, heated in a thousand centers to the boiling 
point ; low, half molten islands, dim through the fog and scarce 
more fixed than waves themselves, that heave and tremble 
under the impulsions of the igneous agencies ; roaring geysers 
that ever and anon throw up their intermittent jets of boiling 
fluid, vapor and thick steam, from these tremulous lands ; and 
in the dim outskirts of the scene, the red gleam of fire shot 
forth from yawning cracks and deep chasms. Such would 
be the probable state of things among the times of the earlier 
gneiss and mica-chist deposits — times buried deep in that 
chaotic night which must have continued to exist for, may 
hap, many ages after that beginning of things in which God 
created the heavens and the earth." 

At length, however, as the earth's surface gradually cooled 
down and the enveloping waters sunk to a lower temperature, 
let us suppose during the latter times of the mica schist and 
the earlier times of the clay slate, the steam atmosphere would 
become less dense and thick, and finally the rays of the sun 
would struggle through it; at first doubtful and diffused, form-

ing a faint twilight, but gradually strengthening, as the later 
ages of the slate formation passed away, until at the close of 
the great primary period day and night — the one still dim and 
grey, the other wrapped in the pall of darkness — would suc- 
ceed each other as now, as the earth revolved on its axis. 

The number of active volcanoes on our globe are about 275 
Humboldt suggests the idea that volcanoes are merely venta 
located above some far extended subterranean crack or fissure 
in the crust of the earth, through which the molten matter of 
^the interior escapes to the surface. 

The falls of Niagara are 150 feet in height, and the average 
amount of water passing over each minute is estimated at 
670,000 tons. This water, by its abrading power, has undoubt- 
edly excavated for itself the gorge or channel — seven miles 
long, 200 feet deep, and 1,200 to 2,000 feet wide—which now 
intervenes between the falls and Lake Ontario. The minimum 
time required to wear through this space has been estimated 
by Sir Charles Lyell, at 35,000 years. — WelVs Illustrated Geol. 

STRATIFIED ROCKS. 

The stratified rocks of Great Britain have been studied more 
than any other of the earth, and as the result of these investi- 
gations it has been found that the extinct mammalia, found it 
fossiliferous rocks, is more numerous by half than all the 
species now existing; and of molluscs, the fossil species nine 
times as numerous as the living species ; the fossil fish five 
times, the reptiles ten times, and the radiate fourteen times. 

The geologist finds no trace of that golden age of the world 
of which the poets delighted to sing, when all creatures lived 
together in peace, and wars and bloodshed were unknown. 
Ever since animal life began on our planet, there existed, in 
all departments of being, carniverous classes, who could not 
live but by the death of their neighbors ; and who were armed, 
in consequence, for their destruction, like the butcher with 
his axe and knife, and the angler with his hook and spear. 

In Europe, the caverns or caves that have been discovered, 
have contained the remains or skeletons of a great many of 
the diiFerent species of animals that now inhabit the earth, 
and of others that are now extinct. For instance, the bones 
and skeletons of the mammoth are found in great numbers; 
also of the mastadon, the epoch of the mastadon, in a geolog- 
ical sense, is very recent. Some think that the mammoths 
and mastadons did not become entirely extinct in this country 
until after the advent of man. Sir Charles Lyell is of the 
opinion that the period of the extinction of the mastadon, 
although recent, must have been many thousand years ago.

The piston rod of a steam engine makes two complete stops at 
everj^ revolution of the crank attached to the end of the pitman. 

HoKSE Power. — The average power of a horse is sufficient to 
raise a weight of about 23,000 pounds one foot per minute, but 
when calculating the horse power of a steam engine it is esti- 
tmated at 33,000 pounds. It then follows that a ten horse 
powers team engine is, in fact, about equal to fourteen average 
horses. 

Power of Steam. — One cubic foot of water converted into 
steam will raise the enormous weight of three and a half mil- 
licm pounds one foot, or seven hundred pounds one mile high. 

All bodies or particles of matter fall to the eath by the at- 
traction of gravity, and their speed is in proportion to their 
density ; but take away the resisting force of the atmosphere, 
then a cork or feather will fall as fast as a bullet. 

Resultant motion may be illustrated by holding a ball or 
weight in your hand and dropping it from the top of your head 
while running, you will find that you cannot run fast enough 
to overtake the ball before it strikes the ground. 

A ball may be shot from a cannon from the top of a tower 
on a horizontal plain, and another dropped from the mouth of 
the cannon at the same time, and they will both strike the 
earth at the same time, provided the surface be horizontal 
with the cannon. 

Lever power is almost indispensable, or in other words,, 
without it we could scarcely do anything; yet to take in con- 
sideration distance and speed, there is not a particle of power 
gained by a lever. Illustration ; Suppose a lever 20 feet long, 
the fulcrum 2 feet from one end of the lever, 10 pounds on the 
long end of the lever is equal to 100 pounds on the short end ; 
but to raise the JOO pounds one foot the ten pounds passes 
through 10 feet of space, consequently it travels ten times as 
fast as the 100 pounds, so all that is gained in power is lost in 
speed and distance ; because if both ends of the lever was of 
the same length while one end of the lever was passing 
through ten feet of space the other end would pass through 
the same ten feet ; and ten pounds would raise ten pounds ten 
feet high, or ten times as high as the ten pounds on the long 
end of the lever would raise the 100 pounds on th^ short end*

OBIGIN OF THE SOLAE SYSTEM!. 

Many theories have been propounded at different periods 
of the history of astronomy, respecting the original formation 
of our Solar System, as well as all other suns and systems, 
which it has pleased the great CREAToa of all things to call 
into existence, but no one has gained so great favor or excited 
so violent opposition, as the theory first proposed by Sir Wil- 
liam Herschel, and afterwards more especially applied by the 
celebrated La Place to the formation of the solar system. 

This theory may be thus stated :— In the beginning all the 
matter composing the sun, planets, and satellites was diffused 
through space, in a state of exceedingly minute division, the 
ultimate particles being held asunder by the repulsion of 
heat. In process of time, under the action of gravitation, th^ 
mass assumed a round or globular shape, and the particles 
tending to the centre of gravity, a motion of rotation on an 
axis would commence. The great mass, now gradually cool- 
ing and condensing, must increase its rotary motion, thereby 
increasing the centrifugal force at the equator of the revolv- 
ing mass, until, finally, a ring of matter is actually detached 
from the equator, and is left revolving in space by the shrink- 
ing away from it, of the interior mass. If now we follow this 
isolated ring of matter, we find every reason to believe that 
its particles will gradually coalesce into a globular form, and 
in turn form satellites, as it was itself formed. It is unneces- 
eary to pursue the reasoning further, for the same laws which 
produce one planet from the equator of the central revolving 
mass, may produce many — until finally, the process is ended 
by a partial solidification of the central mass, so great, that 
gravity aided by the attraction of cohesion, is more than suf 
ficient to resist the action of tho centrifugal force, and no fur 
ther cha*nge occurs. 

(106) 



SKETCHES OP ASTRONOMY. 107 



It has been urged in favor of this theory, that it accounts 
for the striking peculiarities which are found in the organiza- 
tion of the solar system. That the rings of Saturn are positive 
proofs of the truth of the theory, they having cooled and con- 
densed without breaking. That the individuals constituting 
a system thus produced, must revolve and rotate as do the 
planets and satellites, and in orbits of the precise figure and 
position, as those occupied by the planets. It accounts for 
the rotation of the sun on its axis, and presents a solution of 
the strange appearance connected with the sun called the 
Z 'diacal Light. It goes further and accounts for the forma- 
tion of single, double, and multiple suns and stars— and by the 
remains of chaotic matter in the interstics between the stars, 
and which are finally drawn to some particular sun, whose in- 
fluence in the end preponderates, accounts for the comets 
which enter our system from every region in space. 

In support of this theory it has been urged that the comets, 
in their organization, presents us with specimens of this finely 
divided nebulous or chaotic matter— and that the telescope 
reveals cloudy patches of light of indefinite extent, scattered 
throughout space, which give evidence of being yet unformed 
and chaotic. That many stars are found in which the bright 
nucleus or centre is surrounded by a halo or haze of nebulous 
light, and that round nebulous bodies are seen with the teles- 
cope, of an extent vastly greater than would fill the entire 
space encircled by the enormous orbit of the planet La 
Yerrier, or having a diameter greater than 7,000 millions of 
miles. 

Such are a few of the arguments in support of this most ex- 
traordinary theory. We now present the objections which 
have been most strongly insisted on. The retrogade motions 
of the satellites of Herschel, and their great inclination to 
the plane of the ecliptic can not be accounted for by this 
theory. That computation shows that no atmosphere of con- 
densed nebulous matter can extend to so great a distance from 
the sun, as does the matter composing the Zodiacal Light, and, 
finally, that the nebulous matter in the heavens will ulti- 
mately be resolved into immense congeries and clusters of 
stars, whose great distance has hitherto defied the power of 
the best instruments. 
In reply to the first objection, the friends of the theory doubt 



108 SKETCHES OF ASTRONOMY. 

the facts with reference to the satellites of Herschel. They 
reply that the matter composing the Zodiacal Light being in 
the nature of cometary matter, is thrown to a greater distance 
from the sun than gravity would warrant, by that power resid- 
ing in the sun which is able on the approach of comets to 
project those enormous trains of light, which sometimes render 
them so wonderful. As to the last objection, it is urged that 
although many nebulas will daubtless be resolved into stars, 
by using more powerful telescopes, yet that these same teles- 
copes will reveal more new nebulce which cannot be resolved, 
than they will resolve — and as to the existence of nebuloua 
matter, it is perfectly demonstrated by the physical organiza- 
tion of comets, and the existence of nebulous stars. 

Such was the state of the Astronomical argument, when 
Lord Rosse's Great Reflector was first applied to the explora- 
tion of the distant regions of space. In a religious point of 
view, this theory had excited no small amount of discussion, 
in consequence of its supposed Atheistical tendencies. The 
friends of the theory contend that it was no more Atheistical 
to admit the formation of the universe by law, than to acknowl- 
edge that it is now sustained by laws. Indeed since we must 
go to the first great cause for matter in its chaotic state, as 
well as for the laws which govern matter, that this theory gave 
to us a grander view of the omniscience and omnipotence of 
God than could be obtained from any other source. In fine, 
that it harmonized with the declaration of scripture, which 
tells us that " In the beginning God created the heavens and 
the earth, and the earth was without form and voidP If the 
earth came into existence in its present condition, then it had 
form and was not void. Hence, this first grand declaration of 
the inspired writer must refer to the formation of the matter 
of which the heavens and earth were afterwards formed. Some 
went so far as to trace out dimly a full account. of this theory 
in the order of creation, as laid down in Gensis. 

Let us now proceed to the discoveries of Lord Rosse, and their 
influence on this greatly disputed theory. The space penetrat- 
ing power of his six feet reflector is much greater than that 
of Sir William Herschel's great telescope, and it was anti- 
cipated that many nebulae which were unresolved into clusters 
of stars by Hershel, would yield under the greater power and 
light of Lord Rosse's telescope. This has proved to be the 



SKETCHES OF ASTRONOMY. 109 



fact. Very many nebulas have been removed from their old 
places, and must hereafter figure among the clusters, while we 
are informed that many yet remain, even of the old nebulae 
which defy the power of the monster telescope. 

The most remarkable object which has been resolved by 
Lord Rosse, is the great nebula in Orion, one of the most 
extraordinary objects in the heavens. Its size is enormous, 
and its figure very extraordinary. In certain parts adjoining 
the nebula the heavens are jet black, either from contrast or by 
-the vacuity of these regions. Two immense spurs of light are 
seen to project from the principal mass of the nebula, and to 
extend to a most extraordinary distance. This will be better 
understood, by remembering that at the distance at which this 
nebula is removed from us, the entire diameter of the earth's 
orbit, 190 millions of miles, is an invisable point, less than one 
second, while this nebula extends to many thousands of times 
this distance, and more probably to many millions of times. 

Several stars have been found, and are visible on the nebula, 
but have hitherto been regarded as being between the eye of 
the observer and this remote object. Sir William Herschel 
was unable to resolve this mysterious body, and yet the nebula 
gave indications of being of the resolvable kind by its irreg- 
ular and curdled appearance under high powers. Several 
years since Dr. J. Lamont, of Munich, after a rigid scrutiny, of 
this nebula with his great Refractor, pronounced a portion of 
it to be composed of minute stellar points, and predicted its 
final perfect resolution into stars by greater power. This pre- 
diction has been fully verified, for Lord Rosse's great Reflector 
has solved the mystery, and filled this extraordinary object 
with the "jewelry of stars.'' 

But the question recurs, what have the defenders of the 
nebular theory lost, or its enemies gained by this interesting 
discovery? We are all liable to reach conclusions too hastily, 
and to join issue on false points. If the nebular theory depen- 
ded for its existance upon the irresolvability of the nebula in 
Orion, then indeed has the theory been entirely exploded. 
But this is not the fact. No one has asserted that the 
great nebula in Orion was nebulous matter, and if it were not, 
then none existed. Such an issue would have been a false en©, 
had it been made. 

The theory has neither lost nor gained by the discoverieB

thus far made; what time may develope it is impossible to 
say. In case certain data can be obtained, which appear to be 
accessible, then indeed may we demonstrate its truth or false 
hood, by mathematical investigation. Until then, the safer 
plan is neither to adopt nor reject, but investigate until abso- 
lute truth shall reward our long continued labor, and reveal 
the mystery of the organization of that stupendous system, ot 
which our humble planet forms an insignificant part. — Smith'' s^ 
Astronomy. 

The sun is the center of the solar system, around which all 
other planets belonging to our universe revolve. The names 
of all the primary planets that have been discovered that con- 
stitute the solar system, are the Sun, Mercury, Venus, the 
Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Herschel, Uranus, Neptune, and 
twenty- three asteroids, or small planets. The approximate 
distance each of the large planets travel in making one revo- 
lution around the sun is about as follows :

COMETS. 

Very little is known of the physical nature of comets. 
They are thought by some astronomers to be about as dense 
as smoke. They are bodies that revolve around the sun in 
very elongated orbits, and some astronomers think that th& 
greater number visit our system but once, and then fly off in 
nearly straight lines, and go to revolve around other suns in 
the far-off distant heavens. The length of the tail of a cou^t, 
as measured by astronomers, seem almost incredible.

DlJiECTIONS FOR FINDING THE NORTH STAR, AT ANY TIME. 

Every pupil should be instructed in the manner of pointing 
out the North Star at any time of the night. If they are ena- 
bled to do this at any time, it will assist them in making other 
important observations, as well as being of use on many occa- 
sions which occur in the life of every man. Many persons 
have been lost in 2i prairie or other unfrequented places, when 
if they had been able to have told the points of the compass 
they could have extricated themselves from their lost siiua- 
tion. This may be done in a very easy manner. There U 
hardly a child of ten years of age who cannot at any time of 
night point out the stars in the Great Bear which form what is 
called the Great Dipper. Now if an imaginary line be drawn 
through the two slars which form the front edge of the Dipper, 
from the bottom towards the top, and continued about 20 de- 
grees, it will pass very near the North Star— so near that it 
cannot be mistaken, there being no other slars of that magni- 
tude near it. It should be borne in mind that this rule holds 
good in whatever position the Dipper may be at the time. — 
SmitJi's Illustrated Astronomy. 

ECLIPSES. 

Eclipses are among the most interesting phenomena pre- 
sented to us by the heavenly bodies. In ail ages, when an 
eclipse has taken place, it has excited the profound attention 
of the learned, and the fears and superstitions of the ignorant. 
The causes of eclipses before the seventeenth century were 
known only to a few, and they generally took advantage of 
this knowledge to impose upon the credulity of the ignorant 
by pretending that they were inspired by the Gods. Among 
the ancient nations, the Chaldeans were the ibremost in their 
observations of the phenomena of the heavens ; perhaps iLis 
was owing in some measure to their occupation; they being 
shepherds were obliged to watch their flocks by night to pro- 
tect them from the wild beasts which were at that time num- 
erous. Men under such circumstances would naturally be 
led to watch closely the movements of the heavenly bodies, 
and more especially so, for in the earlier periods of the world 
they had no correct mode of reckoning time in order to deter- 
mine the seasons or the proper seed time and harvest. 

Eclipses attracted the particular attention of the Chaldeans, 



112 SKETCHES OF ASTRONOMY. 

and by a series of observations extended through several cen- 
turies, they discovered a very important fact relating to 
eclipses, although they did not understand the cause. 

By comparing the records which had been made for a great 
length of time, they found that a certain period of time elapsed 
between eclipses of the same kind and magnitude ; that is, if 
18 years, 11 days, 7 hours and 43 minutes, were added to the 
time of the hai)pening of any eclipse, it would show the time 
of the return of the same eclipse ; the only differences would 
be that it would not happen at the same time in the day and 
it would be a little greater or less than the previous eclipse — 
thus they were able to predict eclipses with sufficient accu- 
racy to answer their designs upon the ignorant v/ithout under- 
standing the laws by which these periodical returns were 
produced. 

To explain this briefly, it must be remembered that the 
moon's orbit makes an angle with the plane of the earth's or- 
bit of 5J deg.; these two points where the moon's orbit cuts 
the plane of the earth's orbit, are called nodes. Now we will 
suppose that on any day at noon it is new moon, and the moon 
is just 16 deg. from her descending node, the shadow of the 
moon w'ould just touch the earth at the north pole ; in 223 lu- 
nations, or 18 years, 11 days, 7 hours, 43 minutes thereafter, 
the moon would come nearly to the same position as it was at 
the beginning, consequently there would be another small 
eclipse of the sun, and at the expiration af every 223 lunations 
it would return, and at each return the moon's shadow would 
pass across the earth a little more to the south until the 
eclipse had appeared about 77 times, when it would pass off 
at the south pole, occupying a period of 1,388 years : The same 
period would not commence again until the expiration of 12,- 
492 years. Each eclipse which takes place during any year, be- 
longs to a separate and similar period. Those periods of 
eclipses which come in at the moon's ascending node, first 
come on to the earth at the south pole, and at each return the 
moon's shadow passes across the earth more to tlie north, and 
after appearing about 77 times, they finally leave the earth at 
the north pole. — SmiWs Astronomy,

IMMENSITY OF SPACE. 

Great is the immensity of space. Light travels at the rate 
of one hundred and ninety-two thousand miles per second, 
and yet at this great speed it would take it over thirty million 
years to come from some of the far off nebulas to the earth. 
Some ideas of the immensity of space may be gathered by 
the calculation of the distance that light would travel in thirty 
millions of years, and then supposing that the distance ascer- 
tained by the calculation, was to the remaining distance as 
*one drop of water is to the ocean. In all probability the most 
powerful telescope has only brought to view a small portion 
of creation. 

The nearest fixed stars, according to the best astronomical 
calculation, 20,000,000,000,000 of miles from the earth. To 
assist the mind of the reader to get some idea of the immensity 
of this distance, I have taken the pains to make the following 
calculation: Suppose that when the Lord past sentence upon 
Cain for killing his brother, that he had banished him to the 
nearest fixed star, and had caused a whirlwind or some other 
power to have taken him at the rate of one thousand miles an 
hour day and night from that time till now, counting the time 
past six thousand years, at 360 days travel to the year, he 
would have traveled at the end of the six thousand years only 
one 3.80th part of the distance, and at the same rate of speed 
at the end of two million years from this time he would not 
reach his destination, but would yet be one trillion three hun- 
dred and eightv-two billion four hundred million miles from 
his future home", or place of banishment. So you see that after 
two million and six thousand years travel at the enormoua 
speed of one thousand miles an hour, leaves a distance yet 
untraveled equal to about fifty -five miilion times the distance 
of Cook's voyage around the earth.

SABBATH SCHOOLS. 



-:o:- 



The first Sabbath School that we have been able to find a 
record of, was established in the year 1769 in the town of Wy- 
cumbe, England, by a young Methodist lady by the name of 
Hannah Ball. A few years after this another young lady who 
afterwards became the wife of Samuel Bradburn, suggested 
the idea of Sabbath Schools to Robert Rakes. He being a 
man of quick perception and great energy saw at once the ad- 
vantages to be gained by schools of this kind. He immedi- 
ately set to work and organized a school in the city of Glou- 
cester, England, and through his labors and influence other 
cities of that country were induced to establish Sabbath 
Schools and work for the Sunday School interest. 

The first Sabbath School established in the United States 
was organized by Bishop Asbury, in the year 1786, in Hanover 
County, Va., at the house of Mr. Thomas Cranshaw. The pro- 
gress of Sabbath Schools in the United States until about the 
year 1830, was rather slow, as but few of the Christian denom- 
inations up to that time had become interested in the Sunday 
School cause. But one by one, the different organizations of 
Christians have gradually adopted the institution of Sabbath 
Schools, till now, the popular method of all churches for the 
religious training of the young is the Sunday School. Now, in 
every land and nation, where Christian people reside, the 
Sabbath School cause is advancing. 

The organization of Sabbath Schools, 

Kemember one and all, 
Was first established in Wycumbe, 

By Miss Hannah Ball. 

After this Miss Bradburn 

Suggested to Robert Rakes 
To organize a Sabbath School, 

And helped him &et the stakes. 

am 



120 SABBATH SCHOOLS. 



They organized in Gloucester, 

The banner they unfurled, 
The fame and name of which has spread, 

Almost throughout the world. 

The honor due to Robert Rakes, 
Miss Bradburn and Miss Ball. 

Should not be given to Robert Rakes, 
But given to them all. 

For the institution of Sabbath Schools, 

The honor is due Miss Ball. 
To her for lighting up the lamp. 

We give the honor all. 

Miss Bradburn she is worthy of 

Our honor, love, and praise, 
For her suggestions, and her work. 

In keeping up the blaze. 

And to Robert Rakes is due 
The honor of school extension, 

For adding fuel to the light, 
And widening its dimension. 



VALUABLE RECIPES. 



-:o: 



For Gleaning Silverware^ and for Silvering Coj^per.— One- 
fourth ounce crystal nitrate of silver, one-half ounce cream 
of tartar, one-fourth ounce of common salt ; pulverize all to a 
fine powder together, bottle it up and it is ready for use. Ap- 
ply with a woolen rag, wetting the rag so as the powder will 
stick to it. 

For Distemper in Jlorses.— Ground ginger, two ounces; 
flour of sulphur, two ounces; copperas, two ounces; Spanish 
brown, two ounces; saltpeter, one-half ounce; mix thoroughly. 
Give a tablespoonful once a day in bran mash. Keep the ani- 
mal warm and dry, with light exercise. 

Whitewash for Out Doors. — Take good white unslacked 
lime, one peck; salt, one quart; two pounds Spanish whiting; 
one gallon good flour paste ; first slack the lime in hot water ; 
be sure to put enough on to keep the lime from burning ; then 
add while warm the salt and Spanish white, and then the 
paste ; let stand over night. It is better to have it warm while 
applying it. 

For Removing Paint Ifrom Cflass- — Baking soda and warm 
water. 

Antidote for Poison, — Give sweet oil in large doses. 

For Worms in Children, — Santenine, nine grains; calomel,

(137) 



128 VALUABLE RECIPES. 



To Get Rid of Little Ants. — Use salt and water freely 
where they infest. 

Washing Fluid. — Borax, one pound; soda, one pound ; dis- 
solve in two gallons of hot water. Put the clothes in the tub, 
cover them with water containing a half gallon of the fluid, 
and let stand over night. 

For Toothache^ Headache^ Neuralgia., and RheumatiG 
Pains.— Msike a liniment of the following preparations: 
One ounce of tincture of Amonia, one ounce tincture of cam- 
phor, one ounce oil of organum, one-half ounce oil of cedar, 
one ounce oil of hemlock, and one quart linseed oil ; mix all 
together, put it in a bottle and shake well. Directions for 
using. Apply the liniment freely to th« affected parts, and 
rub and bathe it as often as three or four times daily. For the 
toothaehe, put a little on a piece of cotton, and put it in the 
tooth, and rub it on the jaw of the patient. I have found this 
to be one of the best liniments in use. 

For Cuts and Bruises on Man or Beast. — Take two ounces 
tincture of camphor, two ounces linseed oil, one ounce of tur- 
pentine ; mix all together, and apply to the affected parts. 

For Pichling Beef. — To 100 pounds of beef take one gal- 
lon of salt,, three-fourths of a pound of sugar, three ounces 
black pepper ground ; add together, put all in a kettle con- 
taining three gallons of water ; boil slowly, and skim occa- 
sionally. Pack the beef in tight tubs, and cover with the 
brine.

In presenting this work to the citizens of Marion county, we 
will say that we have made an effort to compile a complete 
directory of the business of Marion county, and have used 
every means to have it void of mistakes. We have invariably 
instructed our agents to have each individual spell his own 
name, so that it might be correct. There is no rule for spelling 
individual names ; therefore the same name is often spelled in 
different ways. Yet, with all our pains, it is possible we may 
have made more or less mistakes, as it is almost impossible to 
make a directory without them ; still, we hope that our patrons 
may find this work in the main correct as a guide to the busi- 
ness of the county. 

In making our canvass for the directory we have gathered a 
few facts and statistics relative to the past and present which 
we, in our plain and unvarnished manner, herein record. Al- 
though it is not presumable that we can give all the facts of 
interest appertaining to the county's history in a work of this 
kind, yet we feel assured that we can give enough to be of some 
interest to the reader, and that it will help to preserve the names 
and memory of some of the old pioneer settlers who have toiled 
to heap blessings on this people, and that the statistics of the 
past and present will give the reader some idea of the growth 
and present wealth of the county. 

For the facts and items of information that we have obtained 



132 PREFACE. 



we are indebted to a number of the old settlers with whom it 
has been our privilege to converse, and to each we return our 
thanks, and especially to Jacob Bruce, J. H. B. Nowland, John 
H. Martin, Obadiah Harris, are we indebted for early reminis- 
cences and information in regard to the first settlers. 

Hoping that this work may be found worthy of the patron- 
age bestowed upon it, and that our patrons may find it equal to 
the promises made to them by our canvassers, we now present 
it to our subscribers. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH 

OF 

MARION COUNTY. 



Marion County was named in honor of General Francis 
Marion. It is located in the center of the State of Indiana, 
and is bounded as follows: On the north by Boone and Ham- 
ilton counties, on the east by Hancock and Shelby, on the south 
by Johnson and Morgan, and on the west by Hendricks county. 
The surface is generally level or slightly rolling, except a part 
of the north and a small portion of the southwest, which is 
more diversified. Rolling fields, low bottom land and bluffs or 
hills all present themselves to the eye of the passer by in one 
view, making those parts of the county to appear very pictur- 
esque and beautiful. There is near one half of this county 
which might be termed first and second bottom. The soil of 
the greater part of the county is a rich black loam, and very 
productive, especially the White River bottoms, which are not 
surpassed in the yield of Indian corn, wheat, rye and vegetables 
by any other part of the State. Fruit of all kinds usually 
grown in this climate does well here, especially the small varie- 
ties, which are here grown to perfection. The rolling and bro- 
ken hill land of the county is not so rich, but produces well 
and is more profitable for grazing, being better adapted to blue- 
grass, which seems to be a spontaneous growth of those parts 
of the county. 

The timber of the county, as found by the early settlers, was 



134 MARION COUNTY. 



very heavy and fine, and consisted principally of sugar-tree, 
walnut, burr oak, ash, white oak, beech, sycamore, hickory and 
poplar. At the present time the timber near the city of Indi- 
anapolis is scarce, but in the more rural districts or out-town- 
ships there is yet a good supply for all present purposes, and if 
taken care of it will supply the demand for many years to come. 

The gravel and sand beds of the county are almost inexhaust- 
ible ; in fact, the greater part of the county is based on gravel 
or sand beds, which are generally from three to five feet below 
the surface. 

The county is watered by White River, Fall Creek, Sugar 
Creek, Eagle Creek, Buck Creek, and other smaller streams. 
White River runs through the county near the center in rather 
a southwest direction. This is the second river of importance 
in the State. Fall Creek enters the county in the extreme 
northeast corner, runs in a southwest direction, and empties 
into White River at Indianapolis. The citizens of the county 
are making a change in the mouth of this creek, so that it will 
empty into White River about one and one-fourth miles above 
its present mouth. Eagle Creek takes its rise near Zionsville, 
in Boone county, and enters Marion county near the northwest 
corner, and meanders along the western border of the county 
in a due south direction until it passes through Pike township 
and enters Wayne, when its course is southeast to where it 
empties its crystal waters into White River. The southeast 
part of the county is watered by Sugar Creek, Buck Creek and 
spring branches. 

The natural advantages of this county are many, among 
which are, its geographical location, its numerous streams of 
never-failing stock-water, its fine, rich bottom-lands, its bounti- 
ful supply of sand and gravel, etc. Deprive this count> of the 
benefits it has received by the location of the State capital, and 
it would still be one of the wealthiest and best-improved coun- 
ties in the State. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. I35 



INTRODUCTION TO THE PAST HISTORY OF THE COUNTY. 

Prior to the year 1800 Indiana composed a part of what was 
then called the Northwestern Territory. Said Territory included 
all of Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and near all of Michigan 
and Indiana. In the year 1800 the Territory was divided, or in 
other words the boundaries of a new Territory were marked 
out and established by law, and named Indiana Territory. The 
seat of government for the time being was at Vincennes, in 
Knox county, and the legal business of the Territory was trans- 
acted there for thirteen years. In the year 18 13 the seat of 
government was removed to Corydon. On the eleventh day of 
December, 18 16, by a joint resolution of Congress, Indiana was 
admitted to the sisterhood of States, at which time the Congress 
of the United States donated four sections of unsold govern- 
ment land to the State for the purpose of a location for a per- 
manent capital, said land to be selected by the State Legisla- 
ture. All of Central Indiana at that time was in possession of 
the Indians, and, as it was thought prudent by the Legislature 
that the seat of government should be located near the center, 
they therefore postponed making a selection until a treaty could 
be made with the Indians and the central part of the State re- 
linquished by them. In the year 18 18 the government of the 
United States appointed Governor Cass, Governor Jennings, 
and Judge Parke as commissioners on the part of the United 
States to meet in council with the Indian tribes and purchase 
their claims to the said lands. The council met at St. Mary's 
the same year, and a treaty was negotiated, whereby the Indi 
an s gave up all claim on Central Indiana except a few small res- 
ervations, and agreed to move off and give full possession within 
three years. They also agreed that the settlement of the terri- 
tory by the whites might commence at any time after said trea- 
ty. From that time all of Central Indiana except the few reser- 
vations that were still held by our dusky neighbors was consid- 



136 MARION COUNTY. 



ered accessible to settlement by the whites, and the settlement 
of this county began soon after. 

FIRST SETTLERS. 

Prior to the year 18 19 no white man had ever settled or made 
a home in Marion county. No marks of civilization could here 
be found ; no vestige of a dwelling to shelter the weary, way- 
worn traveler from the bleak winds or pelting rains, save now 
and then an Indian wigwam. The county then was inhabited 
by the savage Indian, wild beasts and serpents ; the tall old for- 
est and thick woods were untouched by the hand of civilization. 
The wa-00 of the owl, the croak of the bullfrog, the howl of the 
wolf, and the yell of the savage made chin music for all of cen- 
tral Indiana, which was a doleful, desolate wilderness. 

In this condition the daring pioneers and brave settlers found 
Marion county in the year 18 19. According to the best infor- 
mation that we have been able to obtain, the settlement of the 
county began in that year. During that fall and winter a few 
settlements were made in the county, which acted as a stimulus 
to the State Legislature men to hurry up the selection of a lo- 
cation whereon to build the State capitol. The Legislature 
which convened that winter saw proper to appoint commission- 
ers to make said selection. They therefore appointed Joseph 
Bartholomew, John Conner, John Tipton, Thomas Emerson, 
William Prince, Stephen Ludlow, John Gillaland, George Hunt, 
Frederick Rapp and Jesse B. Durham. After said commission- 
ers had visited several settlements and locations on White River, 
near the center of the State, and made a thorough examination 
of each, they wisely concluded to locate the capital at Indian- 
apolis, as they considered this point possessed of more advan- 
tages than any other. This spot was selected and agreed upon 
by the commissioners on the 7th of June, 1820. At that time 
there were less than a half-dozen families in the place, but the 
rejoicing that was experienced by that little band of rusty pio- 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 13/ 



neers over the selection almost beggars description. They now 
began to look forward to a better day, when their lands and 
homes would be valuable ; when the savage Indian would take 
his wandering beat to the distant west ; to the time when civil- 
ized and intelligent citizens should possess the land and a city 
be built. Yet it is not presumable they ever thought that 
it would acquire such grand dimensions in so short a space of 
time as is now to be seen. 

The location of the capital being established emigration be- 
gan to flow into the county from the settled parts of this State 
and other States of the Union, and the increase of population 
was very rapid, although the State offices were not removed 
from Corydon to this place until the fall of 1824, and the Legis- 
lature not till January, 1825. Prior to their removal, the county 
had been organized and the legal machinery of the county put 
in motion. The increase of her population from the fall of 18 19 
to the spring of 1822, had swelled her numbers to a sufficiency 
for self-government, or in other words, to elect their own county 
officers. Governor Jonathan Jennings, the first governor of the 
State after its admittance into the Union, appointed W. W. 
Wick Presiding Judge of the Fifth Judicial District, and Harvey 
Bates Sheriff of Marion county, with the power of calling an 
election to be held on the 5th of October, 1822, for the purpose 
of electing the necessary county officers. At said election 
James M. Ray was elected Clerk of Marion county, and Harvey 
Bates was elected Sheriff 

Some of the first settlers of the county that should be held 
in remembrance by the rising generation, and who withstood 
the hardships and privations which are incident to pioneer life, 
were 

John McCormick, Dr. Samuel G. Mitchell. 

Isaac Willson, Thomas Chinn, 

The Harding Brothers, Christopher Harrison,

We would be pleased to have the space and information to 
give the names of all the early settlers of the county, but as 
we have not, and as the names of all those who are still living 
will be shown up in the directory part of this book, giving the 
name, age, and date of settlement of each, we consider the 
above sufficient in this connection. 

The oldest settler now living in the county is, according to 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 1 39 



our best information, the wife of Jacob Bruce. Mrs. Bruce is 
the daughter of WiUiam Reagan, and was born in the year 
181 1. She came to this county with her father in the fall or 
winter of 1819. She was joined in marriage to Jacob Bruce 
when quite young in the house they now occupy, and have 
lived on the same farm ever since. Their residence is about a 
quarter of a mile north of the Exposition grounds, and was the 
^ first brick house built in the county. It was built by Mr. Rea- 
gan, Mrs. Bruce's father. 

The first merchant in the county was Daniel Shafer, a Penn- 
sylvania Dutchman, who located at Indianapolis some time in 
the winter of 1820-21. His storehouse and dwelling was a log 
cabin, located near the south end of Meridian street. 

John Givan located at Indianapolis in the spring of 1821, and 
engaged in selling goods, continuing the business for many 
years. It is asserted by some that Mr. Givan sold the first dry 
goods in the county. 

The first wedding celebrated in the county was that of Jerry 
Johnson and Miss Rachel Reagan. At the time of Jerry's 
courtship and marriage there was no Clerk of Marion county to 
issue a license. The legal business of the county was done at 
Connersville, and Jerry being destitute of a horse he walked 
from Indianapolis to Connersville, barefoot, for his license, a dis- 
tance of about sixty miles. When he had procured his license 
he lound that there was no justice of the peace or minister in 
the county to tie the knot; so poor Jerry had to wait about six 
weeks for a minister to come along before he could claim Rachel 
as his own. 

Mordecai Harding, the son of Robert Harding, was the first 
white child born in the county. 

The first church built in the county was the Old School Bap- 
tist Church at Indianapolis. 

The first postmaster in the county was Samuel Henderson, 



I40 MARION COUNTY. 



who held the office for many years. He was removed by Gen. 
Jackson, and John Cane was appointed to fill the vacancy. The 
postoffice was at Indianapolis. 

The first Sabbath-school was organized at Indianapolis in the 
year 1823. It was held in Mr. Caleb Scudder's cabinet shop, 
near where the State House now stands. 

Caleb Scudder was the first cabinet-maker in the county. 

The first wagon-maker that located in the county was George 
Norwood, who came to Indianapolis in 1822. 

The first watchmaker that located in Marion county was 
Humphrey Griffith. He began business in Indianapolis in the 
year 1825. 

The first man that manufactured hats in the county was John 
Shunk. His hat shop was located near where Kingan's pork 
house stands. 

Andrew Byrne was the first tailor that settled in the county. 
He began business in Indianapolis in the spring of 1821. 

The first mill built in the county was built by Isaac Willson,. 
near Indianapolis 

The first lawyer that settled and began the practice of law, 
was Calvin Fletcher. He was also the first Prosecuting Attor- 
ney for the 5th Judicial Circuit. He located at Indianapolis in 
the year 1821, and followed the profession for many years. 
He was a successful lawyer as well as a practical joker. 

The first physician that settled in the county was Dr. Samuel 
Mitchel. He came to the county in the year 1821. Dr. Isaac 
Coe, Dr. Livingston Dunlap and Dr. Jonathan Cool all .settled 
here the same year, not long after Dr. Mitchel came. 

The first newspaper published in the county was the hidian- 
apolis Gazette. The office was owned and the paper edited by 
Georcfe Smith and Nathaniel Bolton. The first number of said 
paper was issued in January, 1822. 

The first blacksmith in the county was John Van Blaricum. 
He located at Indianapolis in 182 1. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. I4I 



The first keel-boat ever run up White River to Indianapolis 
was landed there in 1821. The cargo belonged to Mr. Noland 
and a Kentucky gentleman, and the boat was in charge of Mr. 
Alexander W. Russel. 

The State capital, or seat of government, had been fixed by 
law to remain at Corydon, until the year 1825, but the speedy 
increase of the population of Indianapolis, and the completion 
of her new court house, together with the high prices charged 
for board by the citizens of Corydon, induced the members of 
the Legislature to make an effort for its removal one year sooner. 
They introduced a resolution for the change, and in order to af- 
fect it they altered the time of convening the Legislature. 
Prior to that time they had met on the first Monday in Decem- 
ber of each year, but this resolution, which was adopted in the 
winter of 1823-24, fixed the time to assemble on the first Mon- 
day in January, which was one month later in the winter ; so 
that the Legislature could meet on the first month in the year 
of 1825 instead of the last month in the year of 1824. In the 
fall of 1824 the State offices were removed to Indianapolis, and 
on the first Monday in January 1825 the Legislature convened 
at the new court house of Marion county. 

At that time the accommodations for entertainment in India- 
napolis were limited, the guest or boarders generally occupying 
the same room with the family, or if they happened to be so 
lucky as to find a cabin with a spare room it was considered 
sufficient accommodation for at least a half-dozen boarders, yet, 
their tables would groan with the good things and fat of the 
land, which consisted chiefly of a good supply of corn bread, 
sassafras tea, wild meats, sweet milk, pumpkin sauce, and what 
we now term Granger pie. The price of board was two dollars, 
and of keeping a horse fifty cents, per week. 

The roads of that day were few, and in very bad condition. 
In order to make a road they would blaze the timber on the 



142 MARION COUNTY. 



line they wished to run it, and the traveler was guided by the 
white spots made on the trees. The travel was generally done 
on foot or on horseback; wagons were seldom brought into use. 

They had but little use for a market, except such as was fur- 
nished by the fur trader, who provided them with a few neces- 
saries, as whiskey and tobacco, and took their furs and skins in 
exchange, or if any one was so fortunate as to have a surplus 
load of produce, they found a market for it by hauling it to 
Cincinnati or Lawrenceburg. 

Their mails were carried on horseback, and they were very 
lucky if they received them twice a month. Very often they 
were detained by high water, as there were no bridges over the 
streams. The floods of water that fell would make them im- 
passable; yet the faithful carrier delayed as little time as possible,, 
and very often urged his trusty steed to swim them. 

Their mills, or corn crackers, were run by water or horse 
power, but most generally they were horse mills, and the cus- 
tomer who furnished the grist would also furnish the horse ta 
propel the mill. 

The agricultural products of the county were in proportion 
to the number of acres of improved land and the facilities for 
cultivating the same ; therefore when there were but few cleared 
fields in the county, when the heavens were almost obscured 
by the intervening forest foliage, when the land was covered 
with ponds and marshes, when the forest stood proud in its 
natural state, it was impossible for the pioneer settler to depend- 
on the agricultural proceeds of the county for support, but had 
to resort to his rifle and trap to procure the meat for his table 
and for skins to exchange for clothing. Then the chief pro- 
ducts were Indian corn and vegetables, or, as one of the old 
settlers informed us, the chief products of the county were 
water snakes, lizards, oposums, wild turkeys, raccoons and 
ginseng root. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. I43 



The domestic animals of the county consisted of a very- 
limited supply of poor horses and thin cattle, and the pioneer's 
trusty dogs. 

Churches were few and far between ; their meetings were 
generally held at the settlers' cabins. Their school houses 
were rude structures built of round logs, clapboard roofs and 
spring seats, that is the boy or girl would spring from the soft 
side of a split puncheon when struck by the ox gad of the 
teacher, which was frequently brought into use and was con 
sidered an indispensable article for keeping good order. 

It is quite amusing to hear some of the old settlers tell of 
their hunts, their sports, their hardships and pleasures, but 
more especially of their school boy days, in the first settling of 
this county ; but the scene is changed and that day is passed. 
Fifty years have wrought a mighty change in the land, a change 
that beggars description. 

Our dusky neighbor, the red man of the forest, has long since 
taken up his Hne of march, and now wanders in the distant 
prairie. His savage yell and scalping-knife are no more to be 
feared by this people. The wild beasts of the forest have fled 
to parts unknown — to a land more congenial to their safety. 
The scream of the panther and howl of the wolf are no more to 
be heard, and the serpent has hunted his hole. The 'coon dog 
and fox hound, that were considered of so much importance by 
the pioneer settler, are seldom needed for that purpose. Gin- 
seng diggers have had to resort to a more lucrative profession, 
and the huntsman has unslung his rifle. The heavy forests have 
been felled by the ax of the settlers ; farms have been cleared, 
ponds ditched, the land tilled, and wonderful improvements 
have been made. Her rail pens that were used for the shelter- 
ing of stock, are things of the past, and fine barns have taken 
their places ; the wigwam and cabin have been superseded by 
fine dwellings and beautiful mansions ; the old log school-houses 



144 MARION COUNTY. 



that were few in number have vanished, and now at almost 
every cross-road in the county there is a beautiful building for 
that purpose. Fine churches and temples of worship dot the 
land in every quarter ; gravel-roads and railroads have been built, 
telegraphs erected, towns and villages have sprung up, and a 
city reared with her hundred steeples, which is the pride of the 
State and a wonder to the early settler. We no longer hear the 
blast of the long tin horn which was carried by the post-boy ; it 
has long since sounded its last note to greet the ear of the wait- 
ing people who rejoiced at its coming, while the steed of the 
rider has been superseded by the iron-horse and the telegraph ; 
our mails are received twice a day, and we communicate with 
all parts of the civilized world at lightning speed. The hum of 
the mill, the buzz of the saw, the clatter of power-looms, the 
hammering of machine-shops, and the noise of the steam-whis- 
tle are heard in every direction. 

The increase of the population of the county has been as fol- 
lows :

She has now 138,900 acres of improved land valued at over 
twenty millions of dollars, and produces annually near 400,000 
bushels of winter wheat, 60,000 bushels of rye, 200,000 bushels 
of Indian corn, 50,000 bushels of oats, 15,000 bushels of barley, 
40,000 pounds of wool, 90,000 bushels of Irish potatoes, 
245,000 pounds of butter and 14,000 tons of hay, and thousands 
of dollars worth of vegetables. She has 10,000 head of horses 
and mules, over 20,000 head of cattle, 15,000 head of sheep, 
and 30,000 head of swine. The total estimated value of all live 
stock in the county is near two million of dollars. 

She has over one thousand manufacturing establishments, 
consisting of foundries, machine shops, flouring mills, sawmills, 
planing mills, sewing machine factory, stave factories, piano 
factories., furniture manufactories, blacksmith shops, carriage 
and wagon shops, and many other things too tedious to mention. 
Said estabHshments give employment to near io,uoo hands, 
and use over one million dollars worth of raw material annually, 
and manufacture over two million of dollars worth of manu- 
factured articles. 

The assessed value of all the taxable property in the county, 
real and personal, is near one hundred million of dollars, and yet 
said estimate does not give the true value by about one half. 
The true value will reach at least ^200,000,000.

146 MARION COUNTY. 



CENTER TOWNSHIP. 



This township is located in the center of the county, and is 
bounded on the east by Warren township, on the south by 
Perry, on the west by Wayne and on the north by Washington, 
and contains forty-two square miles. The surface is level or 
slightly rolling, with the exception of a few small bluffs or 
breaks on White River and Fall Creek. The soil is very rich, 
composed of a black loam mixed with sand. 

In this township is to be found about nine-tenths of the entire 
wealth of the county. Indianapolis is located near its center. 
This city contains about 80,000 inhabitants, and is the greatest 
railroad center in the United States, and perhaps the greatest in 
the world, while its manufacturing interest is second to no city 
in the west. Its advantages are many, among which are its 
geographical location, its numerous railroads which center here 
and branch out in all directions, by which we can reach the 
shores of Maine and the Pacific Ocean, the northern Lakes and 
Gulf of Mexico. Its inexhaustable supply of pure water, its 
easy access to cheap coal, cheap iron and cheap timber; its 
beautiful academies and institutions of learning; its clean 
streets and pure atmosphere ; its enterprising business men and 
cheap rents ; its many temples of worship and beautiful sur- 
roundings, all tend to invite the capitalist and laborer, the busi- 
ness man and the manufacturer, to settle within her limits, 
which ere long will make this one of the foremost manufacturing 
cities in the world.

DECATUR TOWNSHIP. 369 



DECATUR TOWNSHIP. 



Decatur Township is located in the southwest corner of Ma- 
rion county, and is bounded on the north by Wayne township, 
on the east by White River, which forms the boundary between 
this and Perry townships, on the south by Morgan and Johnson, 
and on the west by Hendricks county, and contains an area 
of 30 square miles. 

The surface is slightly rolling or level, with a few small bluffs 
on White River. 

The soil of the greater part of the township is good, yet not 
so rich as some other parts of the county, yet is better adapted 
to blue grass than the rich black soil. 

It is watered by White River and spring branches. Timber, 
building material and gravel beds are plentiful, and the enter- 
prizing citizens are making good use of them. 

This is the smallest township in the county in area, popula- 
tion and wealth. The present population is very near 1700. 
The vote in October, 1874, was, Dem., 95; Rep., 238; total, 333; 
Rep. majority 143. 

Post offices. Valley Mills and West Newton. 

EARLY SETTLERS.

FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP. 393 



FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP. 



Franklin Township is located in the southeast corner of Ma- 
rion county, and is bounded on the north by Warren township, 
on the east by Hancock and Shelby counties, on the south by 
Johnson county, and on the west by Perry township, and con- 
tains about forty-two square miles. 

The surface is rolling, and the soil rich. It is watered by 
Sugar Creek, Buck Creek and spring branches. 

The farmer and stock raiser are amply rewarded for their la- 
bors, and the general improvements would indicate that the ser- 
vices of the mechanic demand good prices. 

The citizens of this township are kind and generous, and take 
considerable interest in all public enterprises, and in the educa- 
tion of the young and rising generation. The public roads are 
in good order, and a great portion of them are graveled and 
turnpiked, which speaks well for her enterprising citizens. 

Neat schoolhouses are numerous, and morality and intelli- 
gence are on the advance. 

The present population of the township is about twenty-five 
hundred. The vote as taken from the official returns of Octo- 
ber, 1874, for Secretary of State, is, Dem., 301; Rep., 184, 
Stout, Indpt, 4; total, 488; Dem. majority, 114.

LAWRENCE TOWNSHIP. 435 



LAWRENCE TOWNS BIP. 



Lawrenxe Township is located in the northeast corner of the 
county, and is bounded on the north by Hamilton county, on 
the east by Hancock, on the south by Warren township, and on 
the west by Washington, and contains forty-nine square miles. 

The surface is generally rolling or undulating, with the excep- 
tion of a few breaks on Fall Creek. It is watered by Fall Creek 
and other smaller streams. The soil is rich and productive, and 
well adapted to the growing of grain and vegetables, while the 
blue grass and stock water is plentiful, thereby making it an en- 
ticing locality for the stock raiser. The improvements of the 
township are good, and the citizens enterprising. 

Some of the early settlers were Jerry Vallandingham, William 
Swords, Henry Newhouse. John Emry, Martha Speece, J. W. 
Combs and Joseph Bolander. 

The population at present is near 2,SOO. The township vote,

PIKE TOWNSHIP. 481 



PIKE TOWNSHIP. 



Pike Township is located in the northwest corner of Marion 
county and is bounded on the north by Boone and Hamihon 
counties, on the east by Washington township, on the south by 
Wayne township, and on the west by Hendricks county, and 
contains 46 square miles. The surface is generally rolling and 
the soil of good quality, and is watered by Eagle Creek and 
spring branches. Some of the first settlers of this township 
were W. H. McCormick, John C. Hume, David McCurdy, S. H. 
Schenck, W. R. Clinton and Daniel Hartman. Mr. William H. 
McCormick claims to be the oldest settler now living in Marion 
county; he came to the county in the year 1820. Mr. John C. 
Hume is the oldest settler of Pike township, and perhaps the 
oldest man in it. He was born in the year 1790 and settled in 
this county in 182 1. Mr. Hume distinctly remembers seeing 
the funeral procession that followed the remains of General 
George Washington to burial. Mr. Hume is near 85 years old 
and yet possessed of good memory, and is a clever, affable gen- 
tleman. He and McCormick and other old settlers of this town- 
ship should never be forgotten, but should be held in remem- 
brance by the people. 

The present population of this township is near 2,400. The 
vote as taken from the report of October, 1874, for Secretary of

WARREN TOWNSHIP. 493 



WARREN TOWNSHIP. 



Warren Township is located on east side of Marion county, 
and is bounded by Lawrence township on the north, Hancock 
county on the east, FrankHn township on the south, and Cen- 
ter township on the west, and contains an area of forty-nine 
square miles. 

The surface of the township is slightly rolling, and might be 
classed as level land with the exception of a few small breaks 
or hills. The soil is rich and productive, and is watered by 
Buck Creek and spring branches. 

The improvements speak well for the enterprise of the citi- 
zens. The public roads are in fine condition, while her churches 
and school houses, as well as dwellings, look neat and tidy. 

The timber, buildmg materials and gravel are of sufficient 
quantity for present demands, and the farmer, stock raiser and 
mechanic all seem to be doing a thriving business. 

The present population of the township is near 2,500. The 
vote, as taken from the official report of October election, 1874, 
for Secretary of State, was, Dem., 335; Rep., 173; Indpt, 
21; total, 529; Dem. majority, 141.

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP. 515 



WASHIIvJGTON TOWNSHIP. 



Washington Township is located in the center of the north 
tier of townships of Marion county, and is bounded as follows : 
On the north by Hamilton county ; on the east by Lawrence 
township ; on the south by Center township; and on the west 
by Pike township. It contains an area of about forty-nine 
square miles. 

The surface is slightly rolling or level, except a few breaks on 
White river and Fall creek. The soil is rich and productive, 
and well adapted to blue grass. Its good supply of stock water, 
its rolling fields, and rich blue grass pastures, make this one of 
the best stock raising townships in the county. 

Some of the early settlers of this township were Daniel Smith, 
Jacob J. Ringer, Oliver Johnson, Nora Parr, Michael Pattison, 
Moses McClarin, Rany Fox, Jacob Robards, S. W. Watte, Da- 
vid Trester, John Essary, Charles Davidson, J. C. Coil and John 
Ballinger. 

The present population of the township is near 2,600. The 
vote for Secretary of State, October, 1874, was for Neff, Demo- 
crat, 126; for Curry, Republican, 162; Stout. Independent, 136; 
total vote, 424. 

The post offices are : Broad Ripple, James' Switch, and Wood- 
bank.

ceives rich returns for his labor. 

The State Insane Asylum is located in this township, four 
miles west of Indianapolis, also the County Asylum for the 
Poor. By the way, the corps of officers of the institution ap- 
pears to be composed of the right men in the right place ; they

ris, Wm. Gladden, Andrew Willson, J. D. McClelland, James

ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION 



AND 



PERPETUAL UNION BETWEEN THE STATES. 



The Articles of Confederation reported July 12, 1776, and debated 
from day to day, and time to time, for two years, were ratified July 9, 
1778, by ten States, by New Jersey, on the 28th of November of the same 
year; and by Delaware, on the 23d of February following. Maryland, 
alone, held off two years more, acceding to them March Ist, 1781, and 
thus closing the obligation. The following are the Articles : 

To all whom these presents shall come. We, tJie undersigned^ 
Delegates of the States affixed to our names, send greeting: 

Whereas, The Delegates of the United States of America, 
in Congress assembled, did, on the 15th day of November, in

Independence of America, agree to certain Articles of Con- 
federation and Perpetual Union between the States of New 
Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay, Rhode Island and Providence 
Plantations, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, 
Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina 
and Georgia, in the words following, viz. : 

Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union between "the States 
of New Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay, Rhode Island and 
Providence Pla?itations , Conjiecticut, New York, New Jersey, 
Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina ^ 
South Carolina and Georgia.

582 ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION. 



Art. 2. Each State retains its sovereignty, freedom and inde- 
pendence, and every power, jurisdiction and right, which is not 
by this confederation expressly delegated to the United States 
in Congress assembled. 

Art. 3. The said States hereby severally enter into a firm 
league of friendship with each other, for their common defense, 
the security of their liberties, and their mutual and general wel- 
fare, binding themselves to assist each other against all force 
offered to, or attacks made upon them, or any of them, on ac- 
count of religion, sovereignty, trade, or any other pretense 
whatever. ■ 

Art. 4. The better to secure and perpetuate mutual friend- 
ship and intercourse ambng the people of the different States in 
this Union, the free inhabitants of each of these States — pau-

entitled to all privileges and immunities of free citizens in the 
several States ; and the people of each State shall have free in- 
gress and regress to and from any other State, and shall enjoy 
therein all the privileges of trade and commerce, subject to the 
same duties, impositions and restrictions as the inhabitants 
thereof respectively, provided that such restriction shall not 
extend so far as to prevent the removal of property, imported 
into any State, to any other State of which the owner is an in- 
habitant ; provided, also, that no imposition, duties or restric- 
tion shall be laid by any State on the property of the United 
States or either of them. 

If any person guilty of or charged with treason, felony or 
other high misdemeanor in any State, shall flee from justice,

jurisdiction of his offense. 

Full faith and credit shall be given in each of these States to 
the records, acts and judicial proceedings of the courts and mag- 
istrates of every other State. 

Art. 5. For the more convenient management of the general 
interest of the United States, Delegates shall be annually ap- 
pointed, in such manner as the Legislature of each State shall 
direct, to meet in Congress on the first Monday in November 
in every year, with a power reserved to each State to call its 
Delegates, or any of them, at any time within the year, and to 
send others in their stead for the remainder of the year. 

No State shall be represented in Congress by less than two, 
nor by more than seven members ; and no person shall be capa- 
ble of being a Delegate for more than three years in any term 
of six years ; nor shall any person, being a delegate, be capable 
of holding any office under the United States, for which he, or 
another for his benefit, receives any salary, fees or emolument 
of any kind. 

Each State shall maintain its own Delegates in any meeting 
of the States, and while they act as members of the Committee 
of the States.

assembled, each State shall have one vote. 

Freedom of speech and debate in Congress shall not be m-

long it shall continue. 

No State shall lay any imposts or duties which may interfere 
with any stipulations in treaties, entered into by the United 
States in Congress assembled, with any King, Prince or State, 
in pursuance of any treaties already proposed by Congress, to 
the Courts of France and Spain. 

No vessels of war shall be kept up in time of peace by any 
State, except such number only as shall be deemed necessary 
by the United States in Congress assembled for the defense of 
such State or its trade ; nor shall any body of forces be kept 
up by any State, in time of peace, except such number only as,

United States in Congress assembled, unless such State be actu- 
ally invaded by enemies, or shall have received certain advice of

delay, till the United States in Congress assembled can be con- 
sulted ; nor shall any State grant commissions to any ships or 
vessels of war, nor letters of marque or reprisal, except it be 
after a declaration of war by the United States in Congress as- 
sembled, and then only against the Kingdom or State, and the 
subjects thereof, against which war has been so declared, and 
under such regulations as shall be established by the United 
States in Congress assembled, unless such State be infested by 
pirates, in which case vessels of war may be fitted out for that 
occasion, and kept so long as the danger shall continue, or 
until the United States in Congress assembled shall determine 
otherwise.

lowed by the United States in Congress assembled, shall be 
defrayed out of the common treasury, which shall be supplied 
by the several States, in proportion to the value of all land 
within each State, granted to or surveyed for any person, as 
such land and the buildings and improvements thereon shall be 
estimated according to such mode as the United States in Con- 
gress assembled shall from time to time direct and appoint. 
The taxes for paying that proportion shall be laid and levied by 
the authority and direction of the legislatures of the several 
States within the time agreed upon by the United States in 
Congress assembled. 

Art. 9. The United States in Congress assembled shall have 
the sole and exclusive right and power of determining on peace 
and war, except in the cases mentioned in the 6th article — of 
sending and receiving embassadors — entering into treaties and

whereby the legislative power of the respective States shall be 
restrained from imposing such imposts and duties on foreigners 
as their own people are subjected to, or from prohibiting the 
exportation or importation of any species of goods or commod- 
ities whatsoever — of establishing rules for deciding in all cases ,

The United States in Congress assennbled shall also be the 
last resort or appeal in all disputes and differences now subsist- 
ing, or that hereafter may arise between two or more States 
concerning boundary, jurisdiction, or any other cause whatever; 
which authority shall always be exercised in .the manner follow- 
ing : — Whenever the legislative or executive authority or lawful 
agent of any State in controversy with another shall present a 
petition to Congress, stating the matter in question, and praying 
for a hearing, notice thereof shall be given by order of Congress 
to the legislative or executive authority of the other State in con- 
troversy, and a day assigned for the appearance of the parties 
by their lawful agents, who shall then be directed to appoint, 
by joint consent, commissioners or judges to constitute a court 
for hearing and determining the matter in question ; but if they 
can not agree, Congress shall name three persons out of each of 
the United States, and from the list of such persons each party 
shall alternately strike out one, the petitioners beginning, until 
the number shall be reduced to thirteen; and from that number 
no less than seven, nor more than nine names, as Congress shall 
direct, shall in the presence of Congress be drawn out by lot, 
and the persons whose names shall be so drawn, or any five of 
them, shall be commissioners or judges, to hear and finally de- 
termine the controversy, so always as a major part of the judges 
who shall hear the cause shall agree in the determination ; and 
if either party shall neglect to attend at the day appointed, with- 
out showing reasons which Congress shall judge sufficient, or 
being present shall refuse to strike, the Congress shall proceed 
to nominate three persons out of each State, and the Secretary 
of Congress shall strike in behalf of such party absent or refus- 
ing; and the judgment and sentence of the court, to be appointed

ill the manner above prescribed, shall be final and conclusive ; 
and if any of the parties shall refuse to submit to the authority 
of such court, or to appear or defend their claim or cause, the 
court shall, nevertheless, proceed to pronounce sentence or 
judgment, which shall in like manner be final and decisive, the 
judgment or sentence and other proceedings being in either 
case transmitted to Congress and lodged among the acts of 
Congress for the security of the parties concerned; provided 
that every commissioner, before he sits in judgment, shall take 
an oath, to be administered by one of the judge of the Supreme 
or Superior Court of the State where the cause shall be tried, 
" well and truly to hear and determine the matter in question 
according to the best of his judgment, without favor, affection, 
or hope of reward ;" provided also that no State shall be de- 
prived of territory for the benefit of the United States. 

All controversies concerning the private right of soil claimed 
under different grants of two or more States, whose jurisdictions 
as they may respect such lands, and the States which passed 
such grants, are adjusted, the said grants or either of them 
being at the same time claimed to have originated antecedent 
to such settlement of jurisdiction, shall, on the petition of either 
party to the Congress of the United States, be finally deter- 
mined as near as may be in the same manner as is before pre- 
scribed for deciding disputes respecting territorial jurisdiction 
between different States. 

The United States in Congress assembled shall also have the 
sole exclusive right and power of regulating the alloy and value 
of coin struck by their own authority, or by that of the respect- 
ive States — fixing the standard of weights and measures through- 
out the United States — regulating the trade and managing all 



ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION. 589 

afifairs with the Indians, not members of any of the States ; pro- 
vided that the legislative right of any State within its own limits 
be not infringed or violated — establishing or regulating post- 
offices from one State to another, throughout all the United 
States, and exacting such postage on the papers passing through 
the same as may be requisite to defray the expenses of the said 
office — appointing all officers of the land forces, in the service 
* of the United States, excepting regimental officers — appointing 
all the officers of the naval forces, and commissioning all officers 
whatever in the service of the United States — making rules for 
the government and regulation of the said land and naval forces, 
and directing their operations. 

The United States in Congress assembled shall have authority 
to appoint a committee, to sit in the recess of Congress, to be 
denominated ' * A Committee of the States, " and to consist of one 
delegate from each State ; and to appoint such other committees 
and civil officers as may be necessary for managing the general 
affairs of the United States, under their direction — to appoint 
one of their number to preside ; provided that no person be 
allowed to serve in the office of president more than one year 
in any term of three years — to ascertain the necessary sums of 
money te be raised for the service of the United States, and to 
appropriate and apply the same for defraying the public ex- 
penses — to borrow money, or emit bills on the credit of the 
United States, transmitting every half year to the respective 
Statesman account of the sums of money so borrowed or emitted 
— to build and equip a navy — to agree upon the number of land

which requisition shall be binding; and thereupon the legisla- 
tures of each State shall appoint the regimental officers, raise the 
men, and clothe, arm, and equip them in a soldier-like manner, 
at the expense of the United States; and the officers and men 
so clothed, armed, and equipped, shall march to the place ap- 
pointed, and within the time agreed on by the United States in 
Congress assembled ; but if the United States in Congress as- 
sembled shall, on consideration of circumstances, judge proper 
that any State should not raise men, or should raise a smaller 
number than its quota, and that any other State should raise a 
greater number of men than the quota thereof, such extra num- 
ber shall be raised, officered, clothed, armed, and equipped in 
the same manner as the quota of such State, unless the legisla- 
ture of such State shall judge that such extra number can not 
be safely spared out of the same ; in which case they shall raise, 
officer, clothe, arm, and equip as many of such extra number as 
they judge can be safely spared. And the officers and men so 
clothed, armed and equipped, shall march to the place appointed, 
and within the time agreed on by the United States in Congress 
assembled. 

The United States in Congress assembled shall never engage 
in a war, nor grant letters of marque and reprisal in time of 
peace, nor enter into any treaties or alliances, nor coin money, 
nor regulate the value thereof, nor ascertain the sums and ex- 
penses necessary for the defense and welfare of the United 
States, nor any of them, nor emit bills, nor borrow money on 
the credit of the United States, nor appropriate money, nor 
agree upon the number of vessels of war to be built or pur- 
chased, or the number of land or sea forces to be raised, nor

appoint a commander-in-chief of the army or navy, unless nine 
States assent to the same ; nor shall a question on any other 
point, except for adjourning from day to day, be determined, 
unless by the votes of a majority of the United States in Con- 
gress assembled. 

The Congress of the United States shall have power to ad- 
journ to any time within the year, and to any place within the 
United States, so that no period of adjournment be for a longer 
duration than for the space of six months, and shall publish the 
journal of their proceedings monthly, except such parts thereof 
relating to treaties, alliances, or military operations, as in their 
judgment require secrecy ; and the yeas and nays of the dele- 
gates of each State on any question shall be entered on the 
journal when it is desired by any delegate ; and the delegates of 
a State, or any of them, at his or their request, shall be fur- 
nished with a transcript of the said journal, except such parts 
as are above excepted, to lay before the legislatures of the sev- 
eral States. 

Art. 10. The Committee of the States, or any nine of them, 
shall be authorized to execute, in the recess of Congress, such 
of the powers of Congress as the United States in Congress 
assembled, by the consent of nine States, shall, from time to 
time, think expedient to vest them with ; provided that no 
power be delegated to the said committee, for the exercise of 
which, by the Articles of Confederation, the voice of nine States 
in the Congress of the United States assembled is requisite. 

Art II. Canada, acceding to this confederation and joining 
in the measures of the United States, shall be admitted into, 
and entitled to all the advantages of this union ; but no other

colony shall be admitted into the same unless such admission 
be agreed to by nine States. 

Art. 12. All bills of credit emitted, moneys borrowed, and 
debts contracted by, or under the authority of Congress, before 
the assembHng of the United States, in pursuance of the present 
confederation, shall be deemed and considered as a charge 
against the United States — for payment and satisfaction whereof 
the said United States and the public faith are hereby solemnly 
pledged. 

Art. 13. Every State shall abide by the determinations of 
the United States in Congress assembled on all questions which, 
by this confederation, are submitted to them. And the articles 
of this confederation shall be inviolably observed by every 
State, and the Union shall be perpetual ; nor shall any altera- 
tion at any time hereafter be made in any of them, unless such 
alteration be agreed to in a Congress of the United States, and 
be afterward confirmed by the legislatures of every State. 

And WhereaSy It hath pleased the Great Governor of the 
World to incline the hearts of the legislatures we respectively 
represent in Congress, to approve of and to authorise us to 
ratify the said Articles of Confederation and perpetual Union, 
Know Ye, That we, the undersigned delegates, by virtue of 
the power and authority to us given for that purpose, do, by 
these presents, in the name and in behalf of our respective con- 
stituents, fully and entirely ratify and confirm each and every 
of the said Articles of Confederation and perpetual Union, and 
all and singular the matters therein contained. And we do fur- 
ther solemnly plight and engage the faith of our respective con- 
stituents, that they shall abide by the determination of the 
United States in Congress assembled, on all questions which, by 



ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION. 593 

the said Confederation, are submitted to them. And that the 
articles thereof shall be inviolably observed by the States we 
respectively represent, and that the Union shall be perpetual. 
In witness whereof, we have hereunto set our hands in Con- 
gress.
