Pipe Sinesio with More that common diffidence i arise to participate in the discussion produced by the joint Resolution now Lief re us diffidence because in the debate i shall have necessarily t differ in opinion with Hon. Senators of. Whose sentiments i have always entertained the highest possible Delorence and with More diffidence than usual because in my first attempt in this Hall i find array cd on the opposite Side a of Talent with tact and ingenuity that would i Honor to any political body however elevated. A political Phalanx so firmly nil together that i fear our feeble forces will be routed foot and horse. Yet no with iding the fearful Odds against us it i duty manfully to contend for Victory these considerations atan Early period of discussion admonished me to adhere to my seat they spoke a language by me not to to misunderstood your competitors ire too powerful they have grown Grey upon to infield Opu Lilica Coli test they Are Ivyll versed in the rules of dec Lazration Hoy arc masters of the tact of disputation ind possess in an eminent degree the Peculiar Art of twisting your admissions into of deficit. Those facts arrayed themselves before my Ini a in such startling Colour that had Well nigh chained my to my scat but duty that command More than Para mount to All considerations prompted Totake stand that w.igotherw�6edispo-sed to shrink from. I was the More readily disposed to perform the task from a full knowledge of the general urbanity that has Long characterized this Bly of senators High in the chivalric pages of Lii or to Lieving that they would listen to a Casoos with patience and justly Accord a Iceni what weight they might Merit xhosa Prepend rating reasons support m in and stimulate me to Ente the list Whilo with due deference to the More experienced Wisdom of others i with modes Energy urge my views in favor of the adoption of the propos a Njmen dment. Permit inc sir before i proceed further to Decla re Altet in no gentleman a estimation in this Flor does the honorable mover of Thi Resolution St a cd higher than in my Friendship for him is fixed is personal. Though political views and opinions Low for a moment array upon i Terent Lides yet our ulterior tic welfare Lur country is the same. If then in i our be of this discussion i should i Diance in the heat of the moment and anxiety of debate let fall any expression calculated to sour his feelings or arouse his ire i now sir beforehand Dep Rocato apr cession and forever expunge it from memory As undersigned and Uniti did. Tho constitutional Power of the president of veto a Law passed by the Congress of the United states has not tally been assailed but the present Cumbest for that exercise has been rely handled. Tho principles i in in the veto message which governed the venerable president of the United slates at the time he vetoed the i Eton and Maysville Road Hill Lias been de to need As Quot a doctrine Smtih to the in vement of Tho it sir was declared though not in direct language to be the grave of our Hopes and the Wilber Quot ing blast to our Blooming prospects. I it so has Indiana turned Pale Undi this withering blast is she politically us self Aro her energies Paral Izeda have those Heterodox opinions of our chief magistrate sounded so harshly upon Tho of indian., As to Call Forth the Indig it . Nosiri witness no such consequence. In turning Tho Eye o or Tho Fertile Plains and Vallies of Indiana we witness peace and fitment hand in hand with Incret Prosperity and flourishing in proven the indignant bursts of discontent Ilone head from his opponents Aad those ire fast dying into silent murmurs. Like the mantled Mist of Tho morn floating Over the surface which silently retreats unfolding in its own envelopes before the rays of the Sun. So sir do the opponents of the principle contained in the Yeto message shrink before its Plain and unsophisticated doctrine. Where sir is the first act of Tho present incumbent that has been applauded by his opponents none. All his official acts Aro wrong All his Decla motions Are foolish or not his own. Why is this so ? because in hot party contentions and strife few very few Are sufficiently magnanimous to ascribe to to Weir opponent Justice. Tho motto is ton Apt to to Quot All is fair in politics Quot a but this Ydo Mettag this Many headed monster fairly bayed the Maysville Road Bill is Likely to poke its horns into our Tariff system to grapple by the Throat our Protection to mechanics and manufacturers to prostrate our Farmers and in the end i oppose bankrupt our merchants. Sir if such to Iliof to away with Tho doctrine i la Hae Nono on plunge headlong into Tho pulp of oblivion such per Iciola doctrines i Bury them deep in the Ocean of contempt let the full blown ii Igna Tina of every mothers son of Indiana sound Tho Tocsin of Ali irm arouse each i lumbering fearful Husbandman o a perfect sense of his danger but sir if on a Niue Thep Clara we find it the reverse then let us willingly Honor him to whom at our hands Honor would be due. A few years since Ami internal improvement and Protection to Domestic manufactures was the popular tale of Public de claimer the theory was dressed in the brightest colours and rightly too for they were subjects that were then and arc now of vital interest to the peo Ploof the West. Those two sentiments were stepping stones to Public favor they vibrate to the touch of each masters hand while Tho Melody produced lulled us into forgetful Ness of the proper Lino to be drawn around our desires. Subject upon subject of internal improvement was continually presenting themselves As our rapidly progressing settlements to the West tread list upon the heels of the retreating Abo Riginio. New scenes developed themselves now Aid was required new roads to be opened Rivers to be cleared of obstructions wit a population increasing beyond the parallel on the Page of history so swelled oui exports and imports. Our own resources could not keep a acc with Tho demanding Quot a interest of our country. In the full tide of local Prosperity Riding High in the expect Alion odour country being improved by he vigorous of the general govern i int to lost sight of the constitutional of . Of my were looked to our wants swerved Nir belter judgments and we believed to wished so that our Hopes would in realize to. To Overly alced Tho Larrier. The constitutional Rampart Pla cd around the general Treasury by the trainers of the Constitution was forgotten. We argued in favor of our demands be Cariso self prompted the belief and prompted Tho Hope. To argued that because of our insulated situation being such As to derive no advantage from Tho constant a Pendi turns of the immense appropriations on the sen Board that Lorende us equal we had a right toa dividend and that our portion should to applied to worlds of internal improvement. Here sir Thi general principles contained in our govern mint wore right they were Correct but in Tho application to unfortunately gait a arc g direction we struck the wrong chord. Instead of selecting a subject for internal improvement possessing in in nature and character a National a Spect we sought accepted and acted upon a subject purely local under the control and for Tho Benefit of one stale Only. Sir in applying the surplus that May be at the disposal oath general i3overnmem in the Treasury its application should be so directed As to apply to subjects partaking of a National nature not local. It should directly open Thi direct Intercourse or Trade with two o More states and not be to the exclusive by if Ito one Only. Tho Treasury is National belonging to ill in general and when supplies Are drawn from that Reservoir it should be for the Benefit of More than one. The barriers to the venues of Trade Between state ind state should by the energies of the general governmental be made to surrender. Mountains should be levelled the Villics filled roads should to made and to Drivers cleared of obstructions that Commerce and Intercourse from state to Vitato May be rendered , Safe and expeditious. But when the general government is called upon to make roads from steam or Flat boat Landing places on irs to towns in the Interior of the same state then indeed the salutary in Llu Enco of Tho fico Power is loudly called for. For a Mot rent let us examine what would have Boon Tho consequences. Appropriation Rafiet appropriation was demanded. Every slate in Tho Union would have demanded a Road from some her birder to some flourishing the Interior Grant tie one you could not have denied Tho other until Tho Treasury would live been exhausted her last vital drop would have beet drawn and a debt larger than any yet known to the people of . Would a been contracted in perspex live. For what ? for internal improvements works that should alone be done by the state author ies. Herp sir i say on Tho tires hold the Langer was to be met and Tho people were to be awakened Ftp Otic their Golden dream. At a period when the american people had in their High wrought anticipate is overlooked the line of Demon iteration so strongly drawn so plainly marked when their interests wore so strongly blended and closely i liked with their wishes their Hopes and Werni Josire firm indeed in the cause of tru Wand his country must that Man be who when tossed upon the political Billows Riding upon Tho popular will could seize the Helwai of state and steer Back the ship to Tho Conat Tut ional Haven / a sir if there be an Escutt Leoti in the Tablet of Andrew Jackson s pop Ilar lame that entitles him tothe thanks a the gratitude of his country it is this one act to that shines More resplendent by cons Picu than any other. When the laurels which encircle his brow As a Victor Over the legions of England upon the Louis a Plains Ond which entitled him to the enviable distinction As the Quot hero a Orleans Quot shall have decayed and boar gotten this okie act of self Derot Jiff to the Chaike of popular execration Rio save unscathed the Hal joined Aik four Constitution shall nourish an open that future historians of Ain Crinan Phi Rity will to proud to couple wit i his Namo and Fame As More honorable and More glorious than marbled monumental statues. When the hot Bloomil of party strife shall Havo ceased to flow and reflection shall have attained its proper Empire then shall the doctrines promulgated by the veto message become a Beacon in the political firmament by which to steer Tho ship of state. Then shall the veto Doc Triue the veto message and the firm in ring veto president be As they Are the Pride of a Large Mujo Rily of Tho american people. Sir before we Are Liberal let us be just. Millions of the debt created in Tho struggle for ind Penzance and the last War was then and is yet unpaid. Let us first Clear the Scott let us first unc Lasp the shackles and become free from the creditors import unities. But sir Are Ali Reho other claims of a higher Grade that stand first in the rank of preference thousands of the suffering heroes of the bloody revolute a remain yet unprovided the militia of the different states who by re arms in defence of our rights who fought and bled for our liberties remain yet unrewarded. Have we in the Leigh Titi o f i Prosperity n superabundance if to have then with a sberal and outpouring hand smooth the declining path of Tho remnant now remaining of this description of troops this now Tot terms band of heroes. Liberally faltering Steps their old hearts Shonu by i gladdened with a Bou Wiful Fiill Tai Tho Treasury of their court re. Thei it Vehe amp our country has paid Tho honest creditor his last Penny and fully satisfied the Calls of gratitude that the prayers of our Fath trs May ascend to the god of heaven for our welfare and Prosperity Whilo their bodies descend to their Graves then and not till then should we liberally bestow a plus on works of internal improvements. Tho Tarifi Quot whether it is too High or too Low on Many articles i am not prepared to soy. I do not however wish to tie the hands of our senators and repro be natives to any particular Tariff. I wish tur instructions to to general. I shall ote for the amendment because it expresses generally our wishes without re acting their acts. After giving our is Otho general policy of the Tariff by us required it leaves them to shape Tho amount necessary. That the duty should be sufficient to protect our manufacturers Farmers mechanics and merchants against foreign Competition foreign capital and foreign influence i believe is the wish of every senator in this chamber. Then lot them look to it. The representatives Are accountable to the people Well As we and the senators tothe As imply they can read our wishes they m see our views. Let then refuse compliance and abide the consequence. But fuse the Amoe dment and the present Resolution instructs them to adhere to the Tariff of 1828, we Sec sir from Tho 1 messages of the president of the United states that the present Tariff pro Large excess of Revenue in our Treasury and in two years More the United states will in entirely out of debt. If the Revenue a Jilji Tho Tariff of 1s28, and inc expenditures of government Hollis up to the present estimate and to May reasonably anticipate the same and the Public debt we shall have an sex if thirteen millions of Dollare annually. In the Treasury of the general government. Sir the Constitution of the United states was adopted in the spirit of Compromise and Concession. Some yield so principles they though altogether important while others submitted to adoptions that were to them repugnant. Then in the same spirit of Compromise and Concilia Tien i would invoke gentlemen to yield something to the pressing of others. Sir while the Treasury of my country is overflowing i roust torn to lbs prayers of those who avow that overflow to produce their ruin. I must believe their representations at least in part. I then am willing to curtail in part the advantages we derive from Tho Tariff o Grant some Relief to those who Are too heavily Burgh end. At the same time i would retain a Tariff amply sufficient for the Protection of our Home Industry without Bur hening the Consumers. It is Tho spirit of Compromise and Mutual conces.
