Heaven Grant that this fad destiny has been reserved for so 1 the to ica Tif Loae part Fillia Ting be. Hey i s. 9 a late wet pc when -4w to d in a to i. H he Lent Roer son cl08e of the session. On monday last Congress adjourned. Much of he Long session that is now ended has been consumed in debates and efforts to do something to relieve the pecuniary distresses of the country. The people expected that something would have been done for their Relief and something ought to have been done. We recommend to the Reader the following paragraphs they being the close of a speech recently delivered by or. Webster in the u. S. Senate on the occasion of the presentation of a memorial from a convention lately assembled at Harrisburg Pennsylvania. Let the blame rest on the Heads of the guilty a emr. To reside i we a ire approaching to the end of n Long session and we Are Likely to leave Oil where we began. We have done nothing and i fear we shall do nothing for the Relief of the people. The government has nothing to propose which even its own friends will support. On what docs it rely a proposition is before the other House which has been represented a As the Only scheme of the adminis Lra Tion. It is a Law for keeping the pub lie treasures in the state Banks. It was offered Here the other Day As you remember sir by Way of amendment to a Bill and was rejected by More than two thirds. It is put to rest Here nor is its sleep elsewhere like to be disturbed. The administration will not consent to give the present Bank time to collect its debts and wind up its affairs without distressing the people it will not consent to prolong its existence a single Day it will not consent to any Bank it will not suffer the Public Money to depart in any Way from executive control. It sees employment Cut off but it does nothing to restore it it sees Confidence destroyed but it does nothing to revive it it sees the Revenue diminished and dwindling but it docs nothing to improve it. And yet it would appear that the administration is now desirous that Congress should adjourn and go Home. For one sir i feel that Congress has not done its duty it a not fulled the objects of the Etu Vii it has done nothing to relieve the country. The responsibility sir must rest where it ought to rest and we must prepare ourselves As Best we May to account to the people for the disappointment of their just Hopes and disastrous consequences of rash unlawful ill advised measures of government. Or. President i hardly intended when i Rose to occupy More than a moment of the time of the Senate. I know How Many important subjects Are upon the table. But this one subject the general condition of such overwhelming importance that every thing else necessarily gives Way to it. It has been so through the session it will be so next session and it will continue to be so till the Constitution shall be vindicated the violated Law redressed the Public treasures restored to their proper custody and general Confidence soon this May be done it remains with the people themselves to decide but until it is done we shall look in vain either for an end to distraction in the Public councils or an end to embarrassment and suffering among the people. Government As almost any other i of those a Plain Blunt men a always Honey constitutional question which has been Gene rum Frank and open hearted and seriously agitated.

And it ran scarcely be necessity to say that no nation can he prosperous which Lias not a sound and equal circulating medium. As to the other enquiries of your letter 1 have to say that i never advanced an opinion to or. Taylor Webster favourable to the removal of the deposits or against their res Toralv i.

Since the name of this distinguished individual has been spoken of for Tho presidency his opinions relative to a National Bank Hare been much enquired after. The annexed a t from a Philadelphia paper will the. Be Light on that matter. We Are sorry to one our old chum Taylor Webster telling naughty stories out of school. In school we have known him Many a Long Day he was then a proper Nice Boyie Cincinnati june 6, 1834. Gentlemen your letter of the 22d ult. Was received yesterday on my return to the City in which you requested to know my opinion on certain subjects of Public concern. It has been my course through life frankly to avow my opinions on All subjects in conversation but i have a repugnance to the publication of my view6, even when they have been misrepresented. On the present occasion i have received letters from so Many sources similar to yours that Justice to myself and my friends seem to require from me an answer. A National Bank should be effectually guarded against abuses and consistent with the rights of the re spec 1 tic state governments. The Power of Congress to establish a Bank would seem to have been As fully settled by the respective action of the legislative executive a and judicial branches of the David Crocket. Who is not the Friend of col. David Crocket who has aught to say against the colonel who would make him a different Man from what he is if it were possible we have but one solitary objection to him and that is he is not a Hoosier instead of a tennessean. Fat of my Hattan has emigrated from the half horse Helf Alligator state and become a Bona fide naturalized Hoosier. We have great Hopes that David Crockett and j. Downing major Downingville Malitia 2d brigade will likewise come and stick Down their Jacob Staves in this goodly land of Promise. Let them come and they will find the doors portals and avenues of every Hoosier a a hear thrown wide open to receive them. Were it Rob red to each one of the Twenty four states,.to determine to whom the colonel and the major belong we Are Well aware that each one would put in a clan Iti fur in in Golf. Uni. A it for a stars every individual soul of Uncle same a children is a born free to select his own Domicil and then enjoy the High prerogative of ingress egress and regress. And the Way the Hoosier state is pre eminently the Asylum in such Case made and provided is a caution we have just Arisen from a the life of David Crockett written by himself a a neat volume of 211 pages Dua Decimo which be have greedily devoured at one sitting he who Lias not read this excellent Book ought to read it Belore he goes to bed. And be who has not got a copy of it prise �1,00, would be glad to get it by paying $5,00, if he Only knew How Well he would like it. We mean precisely what we Saj. When we declare that we have never read a Vii line from the pens of Scott sul-�?T1 wer Cooper or Irving and we have read Many of them that we have enjoyed half As Well As we did the Reading of Tia selfsame a life of David Crockett written by himself. The very preface of the Book phased us better than the Best dinner or Cigar that we have Ever used up since we found eating necessary or smoking one of the most exquisite of luxuries. The colonel says a go where i will every body seems anxious to get a Peep at me and it would be hard to Tell which would have the advantage if i and the a a government and a Black Hawk a and a great eternal big caravan of wild Var meets were ail to be showed at the same time in four different parts of any of the big cities in the nation. I am not so so to that i would it get the most custom of an of from an advertisement in the bar room of a mine Host we observe that a menagerie of All sorts of Quot wild garment so is coming Down upon our Little Village within a few Days now we feel Well insured that if col. Crockett could pop into the Village from the opposite direction he it it uld a get the custom of forty Niue out of Tery fifty spectators in despite of All the garments from the elephant Hannibal Dowa to the apes and monies. Col. Crocket was born on the Feih of aug. A. D. 1786, at the Mouth of a Ime Slone on the Nola Chucky Riverin Tennessee. The incidents of his boyhood Are full of interest his frolics during the few i ays that he went to school his running away from his father his connexion with the Wagoner his cattle driving and his return Home arc All told in the most fascinating manner. But his efforts and tribulations in getting a wife his Bear Hunting and electioneering Are without a parallel. He who does not read this Book misses one of the most sumptuous banquets that our taste Lias Ever encountered. We have a warm Side for David Crockett and Hope we always May. He is one would sit As awkwardly As Ali Jackson Ligure head does on the bows of the Beautiful Constitution. He resembles much More a respectable methodist Clergyman than a Western Hunter and his hands Are As delicate As a dancing masters. He has too a just common sense perception of the True state of the Case and acts As if he knew that the attentions be receives Are not to be attributed to extraordinary Merit but to the fact that he is from the far West an untutored Man and the Only member from Jackson s state who is opposed to the president. Yesterday or. Crockett visited the Reading room in the City Hall and at a change hours was induced to appear on the Balcony where he was introduced by j or. Henry Williams to a considerable j number of citizens assembled in state Street. No intimation had been Given of his intention to speak and it was with evident reluctance he yielded to urgent persuasions to do so. We believe we can give him literally just As he spoke Aud All the Merit in the speech belongs to or Crockett and not to his reporter. He spoke fluently and easy anti with scarce a dash of Eil it arrasm it it gentlemen of ,�?1 had not the least idea of addressing you in any thing like a Public speech Aud 1 simply mean to return my gratitude Tor the kind reception 1 have received in Boston and not Only inner England but throughout the u. States where i have travelled. Gentlemen this much i expected to do to see rather than to be seen. That was my object and i come to your country for a different purpose gentlemen than to set myself up to address the people. I am electioneering for nobody in the world gentlemen. I come to your country to gel a knowledge of things which i could get in no other Way but by seeing with my own eyes and learing with my own ears a information i can to get and nobody else from Book knowledge. I come fellow citizens to get a knowledge of the manufacturing interests of new England applause 1 was Over persuaded to come by a gentleman who had been to Lowell and seen the Manu factories of your state a by general Thomas of persuaded me to come and see. When i was first chosen to Congress i was opposed to the protecting system. They told me it would help the Rich and Hurt the poor and that we in the West was to be taxed by it for the Benefit of new England. I supposed it was so but when i come to Bear it argued in the Congress of the nation i begun to have a different opinion of it. I saw i was opposing the Best interests of the country especially for the industrious poor Man applause i told my people who sent me to Congress that 1 should oppose it no longer. That without it we should be obliged to pay a tax to the British government and support them instead of our own labor. And 1 am satisfied fit the More since i have visited new England. Only let the Southern gentlemen come Here and examine the manufactories and see How it is and it would make More peace than All the legislation in Congress can do great App Laud a a a it would give different ideas to them who have been deluded and spoke in Strong terms of dissolving the Union. I never thought much of that gentlemen but the time has come when one Man has seized the sword of the nation in one hand and the purse of the country in the other and bids Defiance to the Senate and the Constitution. A crisis has come that extends through our universe throughout the North a Merican continent. 1 never feared gentlemen that South Carolina would break the Union but what do we now see six months ago this Hull country was the most Prosper Ous in the world. Look around every where and business was Active Industry thriving and the highest manufacturer and the lowest Farmer received his profits. And now Bow is it All this Prosperity a the whole destroyed and what for just to gratify the ambition of one make a Good president for the country. But we no sooner got him in than the first course he took was to give walking papers to every Man in office who had dared to oppose the greatest and Best. Butt whoever Teuk off Vii and for Andrew Jackson he was fit for any office in the country. Well gentlemen he Tuk the Hull government after he got into Power and i could it stand it and longer. I found i was wrong and i faced right about and when they told me i should be politically buried if 1 left Jackson told them i had rather be politically buried than hypocritically immortalized great applause a and so we parted. But gentlemen 1 am no Many a partizan i dont mean to Wear no Many a Collar for i would As Lief belong to a Nigga and be a Raccoon dog As the partizan of any Man great applause the old Many a vanity has led him on and he has been gratified by thinking he has killed the u. States Bank. But he was it satisfied with that he then levelled his gun and fired at the Senate one of the moot intelligent and patriotic bodies of men fellow citizens there Ever was in this country or any other. 1 said when he cocked his gun and begun Hie War upon the Senate he would find he had fired i tothe wrong flock the Senate gentleman will stand by the Constitution and will save the liberties of the country. Gentlemen of Boston As i partly said before i come Here As a private citizen to see Yon and not to show myself. J had no idea of attracting attention but 1 feel it my duty to thank you with my gratitude to you and with gratitude to All who have Given a Plain Man like Roe be kind a reception. I come from a great Way off but i shall never repent having been persuaded to come Here and get a knowledge of your 1 can carry Home with me. We Only want to do away prejudice and give the people information. I have done my Best. I have sent 14,000 documents to Tennessee and my colleagues complain that it will raise a dust there and i Tel them that is just what i want. I Hope gentlemen you will excuse my Plain unvarnished ways which May seem strange to you Here. Never had but six months schooling in my life and i confess i consider myself but a poor tyke to be Here addressing the most intelligent people in the world but 1 think it the duty of every representative of the people when he is called upon to give Hie opinions and i have tried to give you a Little touch of mine. Col. Crockett Here closed his remarks which had been listened to with great gratification and in the most respectful manner and was cheered As he retired from the Balcony. He dined at the Exchange with a few gentlemen and is to leave town in the the following is likewise selected from a late Eastern paper colonel is going ahead in the land of steady habits. The artist Harding has made him breath on canvass. On entering the portrait gallery he knew Daniel Webster at the first glance and cocked his Eye familiarly at Leigh and Calhoun. On looking at the picture of the signer of the protest and veto the colonel said he �?o1 dont entertain no very exalted opinion of that there he is not backward in expressing his sentiments. On visiting the Navy Yard the colonel was in rapture at the Fine appearance of old Ironsides but could by no manner of Means be induced to look at the Cap of her Cut water. A Young whig who accompanied him asked him if he could not Grin off the figure head. A Send the frigate to old Kentuck a said the colonel a there i am up to a thing or at Lowell he was placed in a hollow Square of three thousand gals where he made a speech in favor of the american system which he concluded by a neat compliment to ,�?� said he �?o1 was never so fairly surrounded in my at Gal Lahert a hotel he sat Down to supper by special invitation in company with fifty other gentlemen. The colonel visited Boylston Hall to witness mosies illustration of american orators at the conclusion of which there was a general cry of a imitate Crockett a a this was done to the life and the colonel found himself in the same predicament As did rip Van Winkle with the Young Ris after his return from sleepy nothing could to More appropriate than the present of the Rifle amp a. Made to col. Crockett As detailed below. The late visit of the colonel to Philadelphia excited the Young men of that City to do the grateful act. It is so wherever the colonel goes. He
