And the proportions of All the Twenty four stte8 arc indicated in a table which .1 hold in hand prepared at instance in the office of the Secretary of the Senate and to which any senator May have Access. The grounds on Wowch the Eitra allowance is made to tie new Stales Are first their com Plait that All land sold by the fed eral government Are five years exempted from state taxation secondly that is to be applied in such a manner As will augment the value of the in held pub ii lands within them and lastly their recent settlement. It May be recollected that a Hill passed both ii uses of Congress in the session which term invited on the 3d March 1833, for the distribution of the amount received from the Public lands had adverted to their liberation from the pledge of the Public debt and had i Tinai ted his read Ines to con cur in any disposal of them which might appear to Congress most conductive to the quiet Harmony and Gen eral interest of the american people. After such a message the presi Dent s disapprobation of the Bill could oot have been . It was presented to him on the 2d of March 1833. It was not returned As the con Slit tin requires but was retained by him after the expiration of his official term and until the Quot next seem ii of Congo was which had no Power to act upon it. It a Ftp under stood by believed lha in anticipation of the passage of the Bill the presi Ilent had prep ired objections to it which he had intended to return itch in negative but he did not. If the Bill had Quot been Etui red there is Region to Beni five Iha tit viral have passed tli�6e objections. In the i use it bad been carried by. A majority of More than to it thirds. And to the Senate Al Hoogh there was not that majority on its passage it was supposed that in consequence of. The passage of the Iii Moie a lit Smi Atory who had voted a Ghleb the land Bill had changed their views Aad would have voted for it upon its return and others Hud left the Senate. There Are those who believe that the Bill was unconstitutionally retained by tire Prei Denti and is now lie Law of the whether it be so or not the general govern sent holds the Public Domain in Trust for tie coins of Benefit of All the states and it is therefore competent to provide by Law that the trustee shall take distribution of the proceeds of the thief past year among those entitled to the beneficial interest. The Bill makes such a provision. And it is very remarkable that the sum which it proposes to distribute is a aul the Gross �i\rplu8, or balance estimated in the Treasury on use is of an uary f836 when the returns of the last Quarter of the year come in it will probably be found that the surplus is larger than the surf who Fth the Bill distributes. But if it should not be there will remain the seven Mill ions held in the Bank of the United states applicable As far As it May be received to the service of the ensuing it ear. Quot it would be premature now to enter into a consideration of the probable Revenue of future years Bat at the propel time i think it win not be difficult to show that exclusive of what May be received from the pub lie Landis it Ivyll be abundantly sufi client for he the e�on�jin401 purposes of Gorter meat in n Lime of peace.

If it Ltd been i pleasure to approve it the Heads of departments would not now be taxing their ingenuity to final useless objects of expenditure or objects which May be Well postponed to a More Distant Day. If the Bill had passed about Twenty millions of dollars would have been during the three last years in the hands of the several states applicable by them to the Beneficent purposes of internal improvement Ducai Ion or colonization. What immense benefits might not have been diffused through Trout the land by the Active employ mini of that Large sum what View channels of Commerce and communication might not have been opened what Industry stimulated what labour rewarded How Many Youthful minds might have received the blessings of education and knowledge and been rescued from ignorance vice Andouin How Many descendants o Africa might have All direct Agency from the Bruiy National works and from Allik w Objet of internal improvement ought it no i to yield to the Slat ii what is their own the amount received from Tho Public Landsi it would thus but exp Eute faithfully a Trust expressly created by the original deeds of get Sion or resulting from the treaties of acquisition.

Instead of its being dedicated to tie Ben Fuent uses of the whole people and our entire country it has been an object of scrambling amongst local corporations and locked up in the vaults or loaned out by the directors of a few of them who Are not under tie slightest responsibility to the government or people of the United states. Insl Rad of Liberal enlightened National purposes it has been partially applied to local limited and be Liisu uses. Applied to increase the Benin Simual dividends of favorite stockholders in favorite Twenty millions of the National treasure Are scattered in parcels among Petty corporations and whilst they Are growing Over the fragments and greed or More tin secretaries Are brooding on stir Nie for squandering the Tiole. But although we have lost Lii be precious years the s Creary of uie i implored. It was in vain that i insisted that the committee on the Public iinds was the regular standing committee to which the reference should be made it was in vain that i contended that he Public l4ands and Domestic manufactures were subjects absolutely incongruous.
