W. Harnum, of Michigan, is cur Travtlint
No inconsiderable portion of tl:e pres
ent session of our Territorial Legis'' ure
has been spent in renting corporations.
Thii has been June, notwithstanding the
democratic creed denies the doctrine o!
'chartered rights" and "exclusive privi
leges," ond in theory, maintains the doc
trine of equal right.
We lay Uiiil a large portion of the pres
ent lession has hern spent in the creation
of paltry corporations, and petty moncpo
les, which en.ible a few individuals to bar
away the public from privileges to which
they are inherently entitled, and have as
jrood a right to exercise (if the doctrine
r-f democracy be true,) as those whom the
aw says shall have the exclusive right.
The liberality of the Legislature hat been
most profuse in granting exclusive priv
ileges to Individuals and companies. In
proof of this look at the single iletn ol
ferries." We cannot now recall the ex
ct number already granled they i.re
iuite numerous, however, particularly
lorg the Missouri river. '-Paper tnvrns"
i.re piettyildukly established up und down
the river-, nearly llw whole 4cngth cf jhe
Territory? Ever one of these towns
want a ferry, -ami many' of them moie
than one. Charters have been called for
at nearly every place, and obout as freely
granted as nuked for. Not content, how
ever, wiih the establishment of a corjiora
iion for each of the places referred toe.
We notice one of a broader character, de
signed to cover the whole extent of the
river from one end f the Territory to the
other, not already coTered by other char
ten. Numerous charters hare been procured
Vy companies or individuals for ferry priv
ileges in different portions of the Terri'o
ry, where there ar no settlements, nor
ny likelihood or their being any for years
Trie enquiry arises, why have so many
special privileges been grunted? We pre
sume most of these charters have been
procured for no other purpose than spec
ulation. A chr.rter when inec obtained
gives the possessor the power of making
something off of the public, or off of indi
viduals, without having made the least ex
penditure for the benefit of cither.
We see no valid rea&on why every im
rginary ferry J r'.v ilege in the Territory
should be covered by chartered lights.
When the country becomes settled, many
ferries may be needed that ore nut now.
Why establish ferries with char'crcd
rights, before they are called for hy the
necessities of the community? Where
there are no settlements, and no travel,
no reason exists for the establishment of a
ferry at all, and none should be rs; LI ish
td for the prospective benefit it any class
of individuals, in advance of the public
A large majority of the members of the
Legislature claim to be the disciples of
democracy, and yet, we have never known
an instance where the ze.-.I of a wing leg
islature, lead it to bestow charters wiih
that degree of liberality which our legis
1st ure have manifested in its crsatiotis of
monopolies. We ljk upon this thai ter
iruAii.g spirit as democratic heresy of the
s liest kind, aud more becoming whig fai:h,
than democratic practice. If whig prin
ciples ore the best for thepractic' of dem
ocrats, in other words, for adoption in
practice, we have no objection to them
providing the theory is adopted alcng with
the pructiee. We like to sen consistency
enough to produce a correspondence be
tween party theory and prac.ice., Urt ihua
le what they iru.y.
The di wocralio theory s.iys, avoid spec

Tiiere seems to be considerable diver
si'y (.f opinion among i,e friends of the
Indians. rj.ecting the kind of payment,
most proper for them in their prtscnt cir
cumstances. It has been contended 1 y .some, (hat if
they were to be paid in money, whiskey
sellers mid olher sharpers would be the
principal gamers, and to prevent so de
plorable an e,il, their annui.ies should be
paid in f gihidtun.l implements, school
ing, provisions mid clothing, instead of
money, li is ihe opinion or some, that
the entire Mnount due ih( m, should be
pidd in money. O.hers hold that n pur
tion of the annuity should be paid in pro
visions and clothing, and the remainder in
the establishment and support of schools.
Odiers, again, hold that the pood of the
Indians would be promoted in 'die highest
degree, by Living a portion of each of the
provisions spoken of above, made for
them. We are of the opinion that pro
visions should be made for the education
of the children und youth of our Indian
tribes that reading, writing Mid the ru
diments of science, agricultural pursuits,
and religion, should be taught them, and
wmi ioo oi uirir own expense, it tins
view is correct, it follows that a Govern
ment wishing to secure the intellectual
and moral improvement of the Indians ,
should m-ike provisions f ir those mental
necessities, which an In li m stands in so
much need of, but which he is the lust to
think of providing for himself.
(jovernment has reserved to itself the
right to pay the Indians in such a wpv as
itlelieves most eondusive t,i their pres
ent end pcrm-iuent good. It is not to be
presumed that the Indians know best what
limy need, and above all, that they would
have wisdom enough to provide for their
highest and greatest wants the wants of
the mind. Light must be provided, and
must penetrate the b-nigh!c-d soul of these
degraded beings, before they will care
enough about it, to seek it, or know
enough to provide it for themselves.
After the provisions now referred to
have been made, the balance due, should
be p; id in money. Indians know very
well how to provide for the body, partic
ularly when the means are provided, so
that it can be done without work. Gov
ernment cannot tell uli t kind of food or
clothing will be most suitable for the In
dians, nor w hen tney stand in the great
est need of them. Li order (o obviate this
difficulty, give them their money and let
them purchase to suit themselv es, and if
ihey make bad bargains, the loss will be
