THE INDEBTED STATES

resources of the indebted stales, and their olti—

at home, and that the remaining half was held by
the merchants, millers and farmers of that State,at
the time of the present rise in prices. It will ap

We observe by our exchanges, that the
people in various pacts of the state, are be.
ginning to consider the nomination of can
didates for Canal Commissioners, by the
State Convention that is to assemble on the
sth of September. This is a matter in
which the people are deeply interested,
and we hope that every county will take
means to be represented in the Convention,
so that there may be a full and fair expres
of public sentiment from every guar
ter of the state.
The tax-payers of Pennsylvania have
been entirely too careless in regard to our
public improvements,and they have permit
ted time to pass, without sppearing to think
that they were in any wise interested in
the good or bad management of the public
works, or that they were responsible for
the extravagance into which corrupt legis•
latior: had plunged them. Hut wit'ain the last
two or three years they have been permit..
ted to take a peep at the vast debt with
which they have been burthened, under the
specious plea of advancing internal
provemen's,—improvements which, it is
now found, will never pay the interest on
the cost of construction. Such have been
the fruits of that logrolling system of
islatile,by which the members traded their,
votes to one another,for the passage of laws
in which they had a pecuniary interest.--
A Rail Road would enhance the value of
the property of one, while a Canal would I
be of the greatest advantage to another,
and by uniting the interests of aq who were
actuated by such pa/riotic feelings, the
people were saddled with the enormous
state debt under which they now strugg'e,
and for a large portion of which they will
never receive any return. lithe tax.payers
had been vigilant, such a state of things
e 2,1 IC • 000
never could have occurred. Nlembera
would riot have dared to vote away millions
to construct a Canal or ,Rail Road to run
through their property; the glaring absur
dity of such works were so manifest that
the first murmur from the people would
have compelled the corrupt projectors to
abandon their schemes.
Another evil that was, nearly resulting
to the injury of the people from their care
lessnes in the matter, was the sale of the
main line—the only productive portion of
our public works—to a company of ca'2i
talists, at a price far beneath its value, and
to be paid for in stock on which the Specu
lators would realiz-! from 50 to 80 per cent.
This scheme was fraught with innumet a
ble evils to the people of Pennsylvania; it
would create a monopoly more vast and
overshadowing than all the bank chartPrA
that were ever granted by our legislature,
and it would leave the State with a hope
less debt of about 25,000.000, which would
have to be wrung from the pockets of the
tax payers. Although this scheme is de-.
feated for the present, yet we do not be.
lieve that the speculators who d esire to
seize our public improvements, have a
bandoned the hope of ultimately accom
plishing their purpose. We believe it,
therefore, to be the duty of every citizen
who has any regard fur the interests of the
sate; of every taxpayer who does not de
sire to be burthened with exorbitant taxes,
to pay some attention to this subject, and
to take part in the preliminary movements
fir the selection of public officers,. whose
official duties are, in any way, connected
with the public improvements.
In the selection of candidates for Canal
Commissioners, the nest consideration to
their competency and honesty, should be
their opposition to the sale of the main line,
and no delegate should be sent to the Con
vention against whom a suspicion existed
of bring in favor of that project
In the nomination of candidates for the
legislature, the same matter should be kept
in view, and no man should receive the
nomination who will not pledge himself to
oppose this unwise and suicidal scheme.

A few weeks since, we wrote an ar.
title noticing the present position of the
federal party in this county, arid in the con
clusion declared that our "sympathies were
with the whigs," and hoped that they
might "ride rough shod ever the blue no..
seg." This expression has excited the en.
vy and wrath of the whole tribe of blue
nosed scribblers, and the Gazette and A-
meriean have been terming with communica-
tions and editorials denouncing the Post for
giving the whigs such a decided advantage
over the antimasons. We did not think
that the expression was of so much impor
tance at the time, but we are now cons
vinced that it was a death blow to the
blues, or they would not have spent so
much of their fast failing strength in kick
ing the Post, for expressing a more charit
able opinion for their factious brethren
than for them.
We are humane, however, and to calm

It has been alleged thy. the Nations/ Bank by
controlling the local banks through its branches,
checks their proneness to over action, and thereby
to induce over purchases. The regulator itself
was subject to no control but its will and pleasure,
and the foreign oxchacge. The high tariff of
118'28 first stopoed that dernaod, by pe•tithiting im.
pone. The United , tat s Bank being thus relies.,

or raised them from 31 to $64.000 000. Tnis in
the same degree refixed its control over a ll the 10.

000 in the same time. This raised prices to such

imports, reproducing a demand 1 , 4. cum, and leads
