Expunge or obliterate from the Jour nals the records and proceedings of a previous session from the manner in which the four first questions Are stated it appears that you do not ask my opinion As to the policy or propriety of the measures to which they respectfully refer but what would be my course. If they were presented to me being in the presidential chair of the a it item states in the shape of Bills that bad been duly passed by the Senate and House of representatives. Prom the opinions which i have formed of to be intention of the Constitution As to the cases in a hic the veto Power should be exercised by the pref ident i would have contented myself with Ging an affirmative answer to then it or first quest inst but from the deep interest which has been and indeed is now Felt in elation to All these a objects i think it proper to express my views upon each one separately. I answer then 1st. That the in. Mediate return of All the surplus Money which is or ought to be in the Treasury of the United states to the Possession of the people from Whon it it was t4ken, is called for by every principle of policy and indeed of safety to our institutions and i know of no Mode of doing it better than that recommended by the present chief magistrate in his first annual wide Aeb the chm Reea us in indu Wiot words to mod these Evtihy it Etc Art to me thu the most a a a just and Futural i slut. efured As by any Ottier disposition is ice Quot by the Small size of the tract sin which the lands Are now Laid Odt and the reduction of the Price this desirable situation is easily attainable by any Pinson of tolerable Industry i am perfectly reconciled to the distribution of the proceeds 6f the sales 8 provided for by the Bill introduced into the Senate by or. Clay the interest of All Soemy to be Well provided for in this Bill amp As for the opposition which has hitherto been made to Yie disposition of the lands heretofore contemplated bythe representatives of the new states there i no probability of its being adopted i think it ought no longer to be insisted on. 3d. As i believe that no Money should be taken from the Treasury of the United slates to be expended on ii Terrial improvements but for those which Are strictly National the answer to this question would be easy Bui from the difficulty of determining which it those that Are from time to time proposed would be of this description. This circumstance the excite ment which has already been produced by appropriations of this kind and in Titi it wire not but continue to produce if persisted in give add Binal Cladais to the Mode of appropriating All the surplus Revenue of the untied slates in the manner above suggested. Each state will then have the Means of accomplishing its own schemes of internal improve ment. Still there will be particular cases when a contemplated improve ment will be of greater advantage to the Union generally and some partic Lar states than to that in which it is to be made. In such cases As Well As those in the new states where the value of the Public Domain will be greatly enhanced by an improvement in the Means of communication the general government should certainly largely contribute. To appropriations of the latter character there has never been any very warm Opp Silien. Up it on the whole the distribution of the surplus Revenue amongst the state seems Likely to remove most if not All a the causes of dissension of which the internal improvement system has been the fruitful source i Here is nothing it in my opinion More Sac redly incumbent upon those who Are concerned in the administration of our government than that of preservation and har Tony bet Ien the states. From the construction of our system there has been and will be More or less jealousy Between the general and state governments but there is Noth ing in the nothing in the Cha Raoul a i Kim Chitton Wei Cut the states Bear to each other which can create any unfriendly feel ditto Bivion which could be Mode of of ing if the admits Turcitu Revenue would be itt apportion menu among the several state according to the ratio of representation this proposition i Lias reference a state of things which now actually exists with the exception of the a.

Business of the country. What other disposition can be made of it with a View to get it into imme Diato circulation but to place it in the hands of the state authorities so great is the amount Andujo rapidly is it increasing i that it could not be expended for a Vei a considerable time on the comparatively few objects to Ubico it Cou d be appropriated by the a Oral guv emment but the desires Dii mation Momii Tivit the people could a immediately it i cited by the Stales from the infinite variety o ways in Wieb it Jii ight be Amplo Ted by Bim by he Iii it Mif it he loaned to their Onbank Iii or rat a to Mode of Distri Hulen by the Gower i Gove Ismeni we Lii Ira m ctr Ely Bop is in the of no Riand to his Roult try.
