Calhoun then answered some of the objections to the Treasury scheme and comparing it with the plan offered by or. Rives tic Only two plans submitted to the Senate decided that the plan of or. Rives was too exception Able to be adopted and that the evils which would result from continuing the state Banks in connexion with the government would far exceed any of the evils which had been described As Likely to come from their divorce. Some further explanations were made by or. Niles and or. Calhoun mostly inti identity of the language of the Bill introduced by or. Rives and that of the Resolution of Isio which he believed came from tie coining Illihi on finance of or. Calhoun was chairman no or. Rives asserting the affirmative As the fact while or.

Clay Rose and addressed the Senate for nearly four hours. He at tie outset Laid it Down As the duty of every one to Lay aside All party consideration and to act exclusively in reference to the condition of the country and the great question which it involves. He commented on the a a Ourse of argument in the message of the president to United states and brought Forward a statements arguments to Controvert Posi a tides and to Hioye the unsoundness of principles. The cause of the present condition of the country he traced to the removal of the deposits the a refusal to re charter the u. A Bank the Bill to regulate the Gold coinage the i Treasury circular amp a. He shewed that there no analogy Between the state of things in a Quot cat Britain and in this country. It was remarkable that the question of the a chartering of the National Bank of each country was agitated . In , the Bank of England was Rechar tired and that country had recovered from embarrassments and established currency and credit on a sure foundation. In this country on the other hand the government had refused to re charter the United states Bank and we have in consequence fallen into the deplorable condition of embarrassment and discredit in which we now had turned h is attention to the state of the country with the Hope of disc Cring some remedy which would give a fair Promise of Relief. But he had looked in vain. No remedy had suggested itself to Bis mind in which the Bank of the United states was not a prominent ingredient. A considered the sub Treasury scheme As aiming at the destruction of the Bank and the project ofor. Rives As preserving the Banks.

The causes of our embarrassments and distress Given by president Buren. There a not said he one solitary fact among those stated in the message As the basis of exempting the government from blame which is Tryxie he did not of course speak thus offensively but he maintained that the president had not taken pains to inform himself of the facts. Quot he seems Quot said or. King Quot to have gathered his notions a Bou these from stump speeches newspapers and quack Pofi Lician and scraps of defamation extracted from the correspondence on the other Side the Atlantic which took place in course of a contest Between the Bank of England for monopoly and the provincial Banks for existence. He took up this part of the message in details read Pas Sago Liy passage and commented upon them with great pungency and evident High gusto. He Tore to pieces and trampled under foot the argument of or. Van Buren the policy of this government had not brought upon the country present Emi arras5inents, because similar disorders had occurred in England As Well As Here. This reasoning or. King compared to that of the great philosopher vrho stumped his toe one night and then railed at the deity for not causing the Sun to Shine at night for reasoned the Sage in the Day we would have Light enough without it. It never occurred to him that the Sun was the cause of the Light of Day and so observed or.

I his is cer Lii Only Onci of the most upright Coli glistened and honorable among those who have supported the past and present admin st nations. His speech of this morning is calculated to raise him to a higher place in Public estimation than any tiling that has Ever fallen from him. His Noble and eloquent defence of the character and conduct of our merchants a class of men not surpassed in Point of intelligence Enterprise moral Worth and All the qualities that do Honor to the human race by any Diss in the Oil la will find a cordial response from thousands in every part of this widely extended country a thousands animated by his just thoughts and glowing expressions wiil repel As he did this any the malignant accusations of interested and paltry politicians a a Aigist the commercial coup Unity. His defence of the Deposit act also was a Memora Ole passage and every Friend of the Prosperity my liberties of the country ought to he indebted to or. Talmadge for the exposition he made o inc ruinous c Csc uence3 which will flow from the est Allish ment of the Sui Treasury system. He referred to the a commendation of this system by president Buren As entitling itto Liis most respectful Consi iteration. He spoke of the Friendly relations Wlinich h id so Long existed Between the pre Ielein and himself and said he had the strongest per Urmal an-1 political inducements to give it a fair patient and thorough examination a but after All he could not but be persuaded that the measure was fraught with incalculable mischief to the whole Community. It is no new scheme. It has been submitted before to Congress and the people by a member of the opposition. But he did the opposition the Justice to say that they did not it Ive it their support. It i obtained Only 33 votes. It was so odious that although the opposition had every inducement in a Niere party Point of View to support it they refused. As Abr the administration and supporters they gave it the Ruoti steady and vigorous opposition j he executive Organ of the government Deli ounces it As revolutionary and Dis organizing and tending to incr ? hey Oil All Bounds the patronage of the executive. Or Tallmadge maintain etl that nothing had occurred since that time to break the Force of the arg Ament were Tsien urged against it by tiie administration. The state bunk system he said was the system of Lii Adunni stration at Liat period. He eulogized in High terms the coi Luct of the Banks and said their suspension had been produced by the wit Lullau Al of the Confidence of the government and the warfare which was waged against them in the most ruthless Ami unrelenting Mauner and he addled Ihn Foremost a Mong those who led on the. Attack Locke the Ven men who a j pursued the Bank of the United states with the greatest hostility and were loudest in be praising the state Bank As he spoke of the Treasury circular As a Art of that warfare. Had the in a of Congressi been consulted that order never would hone been the will of Congress been consulted that order to in ave i in Quot the people never were in favor of it. The people wished it to be rescinded. They looked to the which amounted to a rescinding of it a the Bill As a Bill of Rel text. That Bill was Defeated. But a till the people looked to president Buren to rescind that Treasury those who thought they knew the intentions of the executive left this City in March last they supposed president Buren Lead made up his mind to rescind that order or. Talmadge said he had confidently of pressed this opinion in new York on his return and that Community received it with Joy and granulation. They wer a ready to exclaim Quot now the Winter of our discontent made glorious summer by this son of York Quot he did not i eed think it would be a Panacea i correspondence of the Spalti Marc Patriot.

Or. Kilo to a made a speech on the sub Treasury Bill which was one of the Best in every respect that has Ilieen heard in Congress for years. It was the More valuable As coining from a Southern senator who has been ranked by All parties among the most intelligent patriotic and High minded men of whose support the administration of Ien. Jackson or of or. Van Buren could boast. Or. King wishes to postpone the consideration of the whole subject until the regular scission that begin i ill Decell a and he has made a Moth to that direct. The Bank system is Ilo favorite with him and the arguments adduced by the advocates of the sub Treasury scheme have frightened him from giving his Aid and influence to the establishment of that scheme. He contended that the slate Bank Experiment was a failure from the first it never succeeded in the smallest degree and making a different application of the terms lately used in the letters which Gen. Lackson thundered from the Hermitage he declared that never were More perfidy treachery and fraud exhibited in the history of the world than were exercised to recommend this system to the people he proved these charges by numberless citations of Well ascertained facts and showed that the whole system tended Only to Benefit the wealthy capitalist and shrewd speculators Aud Liat the if profits were wrung from the hard earnings of the pet ple. He compared the Ctm Diun of the anti Bank men of 183i to some great i Temperance apostle who would break lip one Large and respectable grocery in Street and establish ii in place live Hundred Little or it a shops. He said that those who denied that the state Bank system had failed must admit those had a hard time under the auspices of their t executive Patron. He sincerely be Liev Cal that if the late president had kept his hands Oil a if he had not been continually screwing them into conformity with his Hanl Mimey financial notions they would have done much better but he maintained they never would have answered the purposes of fiscal agents perfectly. He poured into Benton a tremendous fire of raillery and Sarca a. The Missouri Hii Bugger is famous for cramming to use a College phrase just before an oratorical display and then discharging right and left All the literary food he has Eaton but not digested. He boasted the other a a a of his knowledge of the history of finance from the beginning of the world and referred to the practice of that a a admirable collectors of the Public Money the roman qua Storss oath Utillus trios democratic Republican Nai Oleong and of those free and flourishing commercial states Spain and Turkey by Way of argument in favor of the syst a analogous to theirs a thu Suli Lea sury scheme of president Baron. Of it was rare sport to see the writings of this pompous and Eda Utie. a Ion or. King turned against him ail his Learned and elaborate in arguments. If there is one , said he connected with the roman mesters More strongly impressed upon the mind of the student of history than another it is their character of greedy sex inti Oncas fattening by the poverty and clothing Hemsel i y the naked less olt in people.

As to the of Nai Olkon a How did he fill his coffers let his impoverished country let the blood and tears of ruined Germany answer one Large to hid Treasury was m ule by the Rob Iery of a Bank in one of the free t commercial cities in the world. And As to Turkey and Spain what is there in the condition of those countries to recommend an analogous system for the collection and disbursements of the Public Revenue for the free and enlightened people of America or. King Mcclar re that the reminiscence ? and arguments of Benton were enough of themselves to frighten us out of All favor for the sub Treasury scheme. He commented with great severity upon the statements doctrines and reasoning of the president s message. He said he was never More or. King condemned the whole financial policy of the last administration from the beginning and a Peci Day the warfare on the United states Bank. He a nixed that that institution had Ever interfered with politics and he challenged senators to the was in connection with this Topi he referred to a remark of or. Calhoun respecting the Pennsylvania Bank of the United states. I hat distinguished senator said he never would c sent to the employment of that Bank As the fiscal agent of the government because it would be a Triumph of an individual Over the government. Or. King s reply to this u As a passage of memorable eloquence and Beauty. It produced such a sensation in the chamber that it was with difficulty Many of the auditors refrained from loud expressions of admiration and applause. A Triumph Over the government sir exclaimed he who and what is the government Congress has been regarded As one portion of it. Is it not so if the people of the United states by themselves or through their representatives in the National legislature declare it to be their will that the Pennsylvania Bank shall be the fiscal agent of the government How can it be said to be a Triumph Over the government what government that of the Hermitage or that of the White House is the Senate of the United states to be driven from any proposition whatever it by an apprehension of that kind sir exclaimed or. King in tones that thrilled through every bosom in the chamber the spirit of 76 must first evaporate More Gray hairs or. President have grown upon our Young Republic within the last four years than ought to have appeared there in centuries. Or. King declared he was a Democrat. He abhorred tyranny in every shape and quite As much when produced in the hypocritical garb of Republican Homespun As when tinsel led Over with Ilie gilded and glittering trappings of to Alty. He was for a truly economical administration not for one with retrenchment and republicanism in professions and prodigality and tyranny in practice not for one bringing liveries from heaven to Servo the devel in heart and deed. He expressed a Strong attachment and lasting gratitude to his party a but he found it necessary to take his stand against the rapidly progressive March of executive Power and patronage. He maintained that the finances of the nation ought to be submitted to Congress. If they Are surrendered to the executive we will inevitably share the Fate of other nations and become first beggars a and then slaves. It is the duty of the executive to consult his friends in Congress on such subjects Noi Lead them. No co unfit could Prosper or live under executive Fina Ciering and said or. King with emphasis if m a res Jeci or. Van Buren treads in the footsteps i will Endeavor to Rostle nim out. Or. King moved to postpone the Bill to the first monday in december. This motion takes precedence of the others a and it is probable will prevail. Or. Clay has the floor for Mornay. Or. Webster will also speak on the Bill it is believed and or. Calhoun will then i Trust let the Public know More of his project. D. Reporters were to Day a for a Cluster of most Beautiful and Radiant creatures sheltered themselves in a Little Nook near their desks and the form of Many a Youthful member of the House grew More erect and his bearing More Graceful As he passed within the Range of the Bright eyes of this distinguished Circle. Lean of course Only touch upon a few a very few of the topics which or. Clay Broughton Der review and illustrated in the course of a speech of nearly four hours. He regards All the measures that have been proposed but especially Liose brought Forward by the committee of finance As Mere temporary expedients or if any of them Are intended to be permanent As aggravations of the mischievous policy which brought embarrassment and ruin to our doors. He spoke of the Universal distress and embarrassment As the distinguishing characteristic of these times a but this very universality of trouble he looks upon As a ground of Hope if we would Only draw lessons of experience from the past. He reminded his auditors that five years ago we had the soundest currency in the world and now All advantages had been suddenly snatched from us by that despotic act the removal of the deposits a the seizure of the people s treasure by the spoke of the prophecies of the great whig statesmen of that period and showed How they had All been fulfilled the measures of the executive against the currency and the established institutions of the country he proved were the causes of All our troubles and distresses. Then he took up the statement which president Buren gave in his message of the causes of our embarrassment and distress and exposed egregious and unpardonable misconceptions. He referred to some of the arguments of or. King of a. Of whose speech i gave Yon an outline in my last and corroborated them by additional facts and illustrations. He ascribed the whole mischief both Here and in Europe to the policy of our government and proved that the embarrassments in the different countries in Europe were in exact proportion to the connection they had with this country. In englard which has the greatest connection with this country the commercial disaster was the greatest. France suffered in the next degree being next to England in connection with us. And it is notorious that those who had least to do with us suffered least and that the heaviest failures were those of houses connected with the american Trade. He said the president was right in attributing the mischief in England and this country to the same cause a but he maintained that cause was the policy four own government on All subjects connected with the currency. The course of the administration with reference to the Compromise act the Compromise on the Tariff aided the operation of financial policy. They keep the people in a state of incertitude As to their intentions and the consequence was that among All the sufferings in the late crisis none were so great As that of the manufacturers. He controverted the assertion of or. Calhoun that the Tariff was the cause of the great surplus and thus the cause of the embarrassment now oppressing us a and proved that the surplus was produced by the government policy on the Public lands. He argued that the True cause was that we have not had for the last eight years the Benefit of a free Xvi Remc it. Instead of the people controlling the executive the executive has controlled the people. He illustrated this argument at length. Or. Clay then noticed in detail the most important measures recommended by the committee of finance he assailed with immense Power the sub Treasury scheme and exposed the dangers to the liberties and the safety of the country which would result from the establishment of such a system. He avowed himself in the most open and decisive manner in favor of a National Bank. His i Marks on this subject when published will make a powerful impression i will give you a sketch of them to Morrow. Maine the Boston and Portland papers we have full confirmation of the election of the whig candidate for governor. The following table contains returns from All the towns in the state but two which do not give correspondence of the Baltimore Patriot. Washington september 25, 1837. Henry Clay spoke this Day to the Senate to the House of representatives for a great ii Umbers were present and to the people of the United states on the subjects which Are now engaging the minds of All men of discernment and reflection. Of How i wish i could convey to your readers any adequate Conception of the Power of just and profound thought and of deep and patriotic emotion which characterized his speech. Of that those who have been led astray by the theories of the experimenters could All have been present to Day and seen the True path pointed out by the Light which Henry Clay diffused i have no hesitation in declaring that on the maintenance of the principles and doctrines to proclaimed and advocated depend not Only All that is valuable but All perhaps that is attainable in the financial system of a rational civilized extensive and great nation. Put these principles and doctrines Side by Side with the schemes and expedients and experiments of the administration or of Imp. Rives or those proposed from any other Quarter and there is no More comparison than bet Een Light and darkness. What an illustrious writer Burnet in his Quot theory of the Earth Quot said of two sects in philosophy is strictly apply a blk to the two great antagonist systems that Kent w Parks v. Byork 3486 4027 cumberland5061 5067 Lincoln 4689 3491 Kennebec 6200 3537 Oxford 2179 3640 Somerset 3311 2509 Penobscot 4321 4471 Waldo 1488 2945 Hancock 1854 2086 Washington 1819 1919 34,428 33,692 33,692 736 of the whigs whose wishes sentiments and determinations or. Clay most fully represented and those of the experimenters and spoils men. The former Quot reaches from top to Bottom with a Clear and Light every where is genuine comprehensive satisfactory has nothing forced nothing confused nothing the latter Quot arc strained and broken dark and uneasy to the mind commonly precarious often incongruous and irrational and in some things plainly ridiculous. The simple announcement that or. Clay had the floor to Day spread like wildfire through the City and before half past nine o clock the galleries a Ere full to overflowing and All the privileged seats on the floor were soon afterwards occupied by those who have the entree. The ladies attended in such numbers that not Only did they compel the More Gallant of our sex to vacate their places in the gallery but i observed several very near one of the doors drinking in the glowing eloquence of the great orator and More than the scattering votes in the whole state do not exceed 150. Great pains have been taken to col Lect them and so far As they have been received they amount to 123. Admitting that they Are 200, or. Kent s election is certain by not far from 500 majority. The majority in the lower House of the legis lature is still undecided. On the regular Day of election Many of the towns failed to make Choice and another trial was had on monday. The to co focus dispirited and disheartened by defeat were unable to rally again in some of their strongest towns. In Frankfort Waldo county whose votes for governor was Kent 142, 192 the whigs succeeded at the second trial in Choos ing their representative by a handsome majority this is the first whig representative chosen in that county since the commencement of the reign of terror throughout this land a period of eight . Pat. Once passing the Boundary beyond which the a Quot Ost a chivalric Rule of the Senate declares these astonished at any tiling than the explain Tiou of j Lovely beings Shil not go Happy Fellows those from the Bloomington peat. By reference to an article on our fourth Page of today s paper which we copy from the Indiana Democrat it will be perceived that at the last meeting of the Board of internal improvements or. Williams was elected chief Engineer for All the Public work in this state it will be recollected that before this arrangement there were two principal engineers one on rail roads and one on canals. This arrangement will curtail the expenses very much and no doubt Forward the works considerably. Or. Williams is authorized to select and employ two competent assistants who together with himself Are to proceed forthwith to examine All the maps profiles and estimates of the Jeffersonville and Crawfordsville Road about which there has been so much i Ircul to and report an opinion to the Board at the earliest possible Day. It is but due to or. Williams to say that he stands very High As an Engineer and will no doubt Render general satisfaction. A petition was presented to the Board from sundry citizens along the Jeff ?r3o�villo and Crwford Vics Road praying that it j May be made a rail Road in room of a m Adam sized Road which petition was treated with due respect. If upon examination the route is found practicable and not at too great a Cost it wiil beyond doubt be made a rail Road. Being near the Centre of the state and passing through a Rich part of the country possessed of no natural advantages we Are sure that this should by All Means be the character of the Road. It will not Only Benefit the part of country through which it passes but be very profitable to the state As it will form a great thoroughfare from North to South. We regret to say that or. D. H. Maxwell at the late meeting of the Board of trustees of Indiana College resigned his office As president of that honorable body. The doctor has been president of the Board Ever since the first commencement of the institution and it is due to him to say that he has discharged the duties which devolved upon him in that capacity with much ability and to the entire satisfaction of those interested in the welfare of the College. He has contributed greatly to the present flourishing condition and High standing of the institution and his loss will not be easily repaired. His engagement in business for the state which requires his a remitted attention was the cause of his resignation a la. We copy from the National intelligencer the following Brief summary of or. Tallmadge s speech against the sub Treasury system. Or. Tallmadge proceeded at great length to examine the question of the expediency and policy of adopting the sub Treasury system.
