Kendall s reforms May be mentioned his leading Agency in the removal of the Public de posits from the Bank of the United slates. To effect this he carried on a system of Quot Billing and cooing Quot w ii the state Banks and in Tho language Ofa certain Fie Nator or. Benton Quot debauched Quot yes sir Debauch is the 1 apply it to the government and Banks though the senator thought the people had been debauched and applied it to them. For this work of a Debauch Quot which proved so serious n curse Orthe country this agent was employed thirty two jays and paid for this service the sum of$316 00, Bein about ten dollars a Day for a Job which has occasioned much of the embarrassment under which the country now labors. He got $10 a Day for doing this injury to Tho Public a a hard working labourer Linds it Dith Culi to get his it Lollar n Day. Bui still or. Kendall ii Long to the Quot Denio Craitic party Quot and whilst he received his 10 a Day for that work he also received Tho regular Alary of his Ollice. This appears to be an established usage of this administration. Tho Case of Ilie Aitogi Ney general is already mentioned. The in Polis from the departments show several other Caes though i will now Only add thai of the commissioner of Indian affairs who was for a while acting Secretary of War and during this period Drew Ilie salaries of each Ohice being at the Rato of $9,-000 a year. Kit or. Speaker no Man better knows All the uses of Oil ice than or. Kendall. I have read a political tract written i think by Dean wifi entitled i me what in this Way Quot the convenience of a place at court or a sure Mode of providing garments for a whole or. Kendall ap>ear8 to understand the Quot it us i per Rte if i Quot of the mutter. Tho printed list of clerks ii his department his father in Law and two nephews with salaries of $1,000, 1,-Aoo, 1,400 and thus we see a family provision of nearly of 10,000 a year including his own salary. Hit or. Kendall is not the Only officer who thus takes care of his own household. If provisions of his kind be evidence of Quot Faith Quot few of them will be found a the president s son has an office which i have already mentioned of $ i so a year. The Secretary of stale s son until very Lala by held the place of District attorney in Alabama. A near Reh Tiou by marriage of the Secretary of the Treasury has a comfortable annuity of $1,400 in the Navy department another holds the appointment of naval Ollic or in Boston with a salary of f3,000 per year besides being president of the Lafayette Bank of that City and a to la a is the cashier of the Franklin Bank of that City which became a special pet under the Bank system. Those gentlemen would All make sub treasurers or. Bond said when the proposition for retrenchment was under consider Ilion Here in 1828, the for minds of or. Adams by Way of proving thai he i they desired every just eco noisy and Reform kit int de to his message recommending it. How were they answer Kilt Why sir or. Ingham who soon afterwards was made Secretary of the Treasury said it was indeed True that the njos Sage did Rocton fiend if but he wanted to see More practice and less profession in this matter. There were no specified reforms found in the message he could Only find there one of those formal recommendations which were us unmeaning to said As the words Quot your Humble servant Quot at the loot of a letter. Or. Randolph in the same debate used this language on the subject of retrenchment and Reform Quot the president did recommend them in one of these lofty in realities with which All Sermon political or Roli Tous abound which might be printed in Blank like Law process a i Eihud As Adas Ion might require. But sir a Aid he i pm for looking at the practices and not tit the Greco ply of the person political or religion tip Quot or. Bond a Aid shh Ute for. perfectly just it was thus shown too to to evoked by this a of he we ainu bag them by their own Rule and thought to Ihil this ought not to object. Be a Ould leave it to he House and to the people to say whether the a free Ilene of this administration had Eoa formed to a Dir precepts it to the recommend Atlow in Leo. In Oil Nav tar aug ural address one of Ihone a he Katy just spoken of and Quot unit Cabin i Quot must have w the ill it Ith Osier we be Teft rms we a Noc quh4 a Quot left a a orb exp eth general Ioia glued. That >�r6ltme of the Federal govern heat which we a Ala to m brought into conflict in Tec ton Lias greatly increased Andia still us a strata de in the same conflict. The gentleman Froim Tennessee or. Bell has for year Laboured to it bring this House to the consideration of a Bill to Secrata the Freedom of elections and thus carry into effect the recommendation of general Jack a a Ina ral address. Able As that gun Leinan is and untiring As he has been in his effects Tho Mensie proms by him has received the frowns instead of the Ivor of this administration. He and the venerable senator i rom the same state or. White were the Early and devoted friends a of general Jackson and they still desire to carry into practical effect the principles which they with general Jackson profess w be governed by. They Feol and know the. Miami met danger which threatens the country Ittie Ineree omd strength of the patronage of office. They see and we All see that Tho of Foo holders Are Quot abroad in tto for a description of this growing Phalanx and its powerful incentive to action i will draw on High authority. A member of the Sanate or. Grundy a Sealous Friend of general Jackson the evidence of which he been already Given in his own words held this language when aiming to pull Down the old administration Quot when 1 see an office Holder interfering in elections it has occurred to me that he was thinking of his salary and is therefore an unfit adviser of the or. Speaker that which of occurred to or. Grundy no doubt often occurred to you at the same period. The proposition is a very natural one and i think that recent events have strengthened rather than impaired its truth. But i beam further it fulgence of the House while 1 read what another distinguished Friend of general Jakont it Aid when debating the subject of retrenchment and Reform on this floor. I allude to or. Buchanan now a senator from a preen Syl Vania and with his continued and growing Devotion to the party what be said will certainly be considered i find by that debate that he said it was Well known that when a Man is once appointed to office the selfish passions of he nature Are enlisted for the purpose of retaining it. The of ice holders j said he Are the enlisted so Diers of that administration by which they Are shirt aimed. Their comfortable existence often depends upon the re election of their Patron. Nor does Disep a it intent Long rankle the hearts of the disappointed. Hope is still left to them and bearing disappointment with patience they know will present a new claim to office at a future this passage of or. Buo Banan s speech proves him to have twin an observer of men and thugs of familiar with the leading critic Isles of human action. He dreaded the consequences of the selfish spirit of the office Holder and to defied the country to believe that general Jackson and Bis friends would provide a suitable restraint upon it. But 1 fear sir the people will to left to conclude that this gentleman one of those Quot political passions prescribed by or. Randolph whose Quot practices Quot do not correspond with his it is certain that under the favorite administration of he gentleman and his friends the office holders have received new life instead Ofa Check. But i must yet Point out another discrepancy Between or. Buchanan s profession amp practice. In the same debate he a reviewed with censure several of the foreign missions that to Kusia included and particularly cond it manned any practice allowing a minister to Quot return after one year s his language is Quot if such a practice should prevail our ministers in violation of the spirit of the existing Law will receive by aiding thu unfit to the salary 818,000, Istead of $9,000, for one year s this or. Speaker was his Precept. But sir in a Brief space of time after condemning and saying "1 am against the practice Quot we see him take the Bounty and become one of the Quot enlisted soldiers Quot whom he had described and go to a foreign Mission to Rusia where after staying Quot a twelve month and a Day Quot be pockets the 1,000, in Lead of #9,000, for a year a a Evke Quot and comes i ohm this seems to be an appropriate Tim to compere the precepts and practice of or. Hance it lab too who said he was for looking at the practices and not the precepts of the Parson political or religious. In that same debate or. Randolph said he Quot could not permit any motion connected with the division of the spoil to mingle with Quot his exertions. He would not he said give up his constituents and the Plom a of his Home Lor a Eier Lahip in the War Alsce or a foreign min a Ion or even or a department of lie a Aid Quot there Hhd been an improve want in the plan of a ending mini term abroad and Brin ing them Back when they have finished their Busi nest for Quot said he Quot they Are now sent abroad on s/eev/ri5 errands that they May come Back it iii Ecta to pocket their or.
