Settler and Pennon (Newspaper) - September 30, 1841, Smethport, PennsylvaniaSettler and Pennon government. You therefore of could hot you were not taken Unpei bared on this question. The Bill which j reported to Congress with your a. Probation at the commencement of the session had the clause relating to Agen cies and the Power to Doal m exchanges As strongly developed As the one Yeti have now rejected and equally this assent of the states. You referred specially and with approbation to that clause Many Days after in a conversation held in the department of state. You sanctioned it in this particular Bill As detailed above. An i no was thrown out on the subject by Yott in my hearing or within my knowledge until the of or. Botts came to your hands. Soon after the Reading of that letter you threw out Norong that you would veto the Bill if it were postponed. That let Ter i did and do most unequivocally condemn but it did not affect the constitutionality of the Bill or justify you in rejecting it on that ground h could affect Only the expediency of your action and whatever you May now be Heve As to the scruples existing in your mind in this and in a Kindred source there is Strong ground to believe they have their origin. If i be right in this and i doubt not i am Here is a great Public measure demanded by the country passed upon and approved by the representatives of the states and the people rejected by you As president on grounds having no origin in conscience and no reference to the Public Good. The rejection of this measure Toor continues the purse Vith the Swor j m the hands of the executive from which we strove to wrest it in the contest which elevated your predecessor and you to Power. I can not concur in this your course of policy. In or out of office my opinions remain unchanged. I cannot abandon the principles Tor which during my political career i have struggled especially i cannot be one of the instruments by which the executive wields these combined dangerous pm Veys. These sir Are the reasons for the jump Octant step which i have Felt it my duty to take and i submit them As its justification. Jam very respectfully yours. T. Ew1ng, to the president.
