O. Don t care any thing about your Van Buron Law or. A told me there was no Law for soothe and to of that Nolde slate and from the sons of those who in their Day were the pillars of the Republic. History Geri Lenien must be false to her duty when she ceases to inform Mankind that it was by Kentucky that the first effectual blow was struck at the dangerous principles introduced into the administration of our government soon after the adoption of the constitutions i principles which had already led to acts of fearful usurpation and threatened speedily to destroy As Well the rights of the states As the liberties of the people. It was the Kentucky resolutions backed by those of her patriotic Parent state which changed the current of Public opinion and brought Back the administration of the government to the principles of the revolution. For forty years the democracy of the Union look cd upon those resolutions As the Creed of their political Faith political degeneracy has been marked by Dep in tire from their Standard and like the original language of the Bible in matters of religion they Are the text Book of every reformer. Nothing could Moree textually prove the purity of the principles then announced than the Progress they have since made in the minds of men. While even the name of the proud Aud powerful party which opposed them has come to be considered a term of reproach if not Ignominy and insult the principles of the Kentucky resolutions in profession if not in a fact now enter into the Creed of our political sect j and the once derided name borne by their apostles j and advocates is considered an essential passport to j popularity and Success. Nay More the people Al i most with one voice have recently recognized and i consecrated the principles of those resolutions by an i act As imperative As it is possible for a nation to per i form. Since your letter has been laying before me i waiting for reply it has become my agree Ltd be duty to confirm the Fiat of the nation settling for Ever the unconstitutionality of the sedition Law of 17p9, by j approving an act for the Relief of the heirs of Mal i thew Lyon refunding to them a Fine collected of j their ancestor under the Law in question. Party i prejudicial authority dread of the precedent respect j for that which has the form of Law for forty years have successfully resisted this act of Justice but at length All Are swept away by the irresistible current i of Public opinion and the sedition has been Irever to ,. I i 1. A Sibly decided to be unconstitutional by a tribunal High journal quotes col. Croghan in Aid an the courts of Justice the Sovereign peo de of the United states. The patriarchs of Kenti icky and Virginia the men who in that Day midst obloquy and insult voted for and sustained the Kentucky and Virginia resolutions of 1799, cannot but rejoice with a Joy unspeakable in witnessing the final Triumph of the pure principles to which they then announced their allegiance. They and their descendants have a right to glory in seeing those principles recognized even at this Day by the acclamations of a nation and one of the tyrannical acts against which they protested virtually expunged from the records of the country. While to aged patriots it teaches the Young that efforts at Reform in s3 if have had the a it to Cave the funds of the govern int to be kept and expend Iofi Yoli tire to Nafea to Fth the latter adj Virit of the cd diet Iii Tion. But should it be otherwise the intelligence and firmness of our people Are equal to any degeneracy. They now understand the whole sofa yet. They Elt in no reason Why the stockholders and debtors of backs should have an exclusive privilege to make theri clues Rich out of the use of the Publia Money. They see no reason Why they should be taxed to raise Money for such a purpose. They see that its effect u to build up a Rich privileged order at their expense to control the government and destroy All Equality Mong the people. Seeing All this and that the plan for which that interest has so Long struggled to the derangement of the business of the country in its palpable violation of the spirit of the Constitution their firmness will be equal to every Effort necessary to prevent ita re establishment. In the Progress of our government the most Gratifying evidences have been furnished that our people Are in intelligence integrity and determined Resolution equal to the task of self government. In that administration which has been appropriately named the Quot reign of terror Quot so appropriately that men of All parties now repudiate its acts and Are prompt to redress As far As they can the wrongs in inflicted the Force of statute Law and the Arm of the judiciary were called in to Aid the influence of the executive and the advocates of a Strong government in putting Down the rising spirit of the people and controlling the current of Public opinion but All the combined Powers were exerted in vain. The Samson of democracy burst the cords which were already bound around its limbs and in the election of or. Jefferson vindicated its principles its firmness and its Power. A web More artfully contrived composed of a High protective Tariff a system of internal improvements and a National Bank was then twined a oud the sleeping giant in the vain Hope of subjecting him forever to the Dominion and will of the ambitious and grasping few and you have seen How he has scattered the whole to the winds when roused by the warning voice of the honest and intrepid Jackson. Again in the Triumph of tho Independent Treasury we witness the Triumph of the popular intelligence and firmness Over the arts arguments appliances and alarms of the interested few who desire to enrich themselves by the use of the Public Money another and most Gratifying evidence that the people when aroused Are competent to m in Tain any just principle and Correct abuse however sanctioned by precedent or sustained by wealth. On these evidences of popular intelligence and firmness the Republican Patriot rests with Well ground d Faith that All Means which May be used to Mist it and or intimidate the people now or hereafter into a surrender of their Constitution and their lib cries will As they Ever have done meet with a signal and withering rebuke.

We s Loop to conquer. This motto Ozone of the whig wards of Baltimore contains the avowed principle upon which whig Gery conducts the presidential contest. The federalists have determined to stoop to every Low Art in order As they confess to adapt themselves to the capacity and taste of the people. Hence the rally of log Cabin and hard cider and All the disgusting expedients to which a desperate and degraded faction resorts to delude and betray the people whom it despises. Are our Plain and virtuous citizens ready to become the dupes of such Gross arts and groveling appeals if so then Are they indeed worthy of the contempt which federalism has always Felt for them.

A drove of cattle were passing through Baltimore tho other Day when two of them evidently More intelligent than the others walked into a Bookstore looked around and finding nothing that they cared about Reading walked out again. Served swaggering Loafer was fined two dollars in Philadelphia a Short time since for using profane and vulgar language in the hearing of some ladies on one of the Public squares. By referring to Thedith volume of Niles s Register Page 172, of the 6th november 1813, there will be found the following passage at a special meeting of the common Council of new York a motion was made to present major general Harrison with a sword and the Freedom of the City As the like had been bestowed on Decatur Perry is a. But the motion was ayes 5, noes 12.&Quot Boston Post has the following set Young Man from Maine a Democrat at work with an individual in the employ of a Boston arise Socrat was lately discharged from his work and was informed that there must be a change in his political views if he expected employ this season. His reply was Quot then i will dig ground nuts for a living until after election Quot the persecution of the jews in Damascus is exciting in England. The fanatical spirit of persecution there will soon meet with a Check. The jews in the Island of Rhodes have already Felt its influence and it is to be feared that the dreadful flame will extend to All other cities where monastic establishments exist. The condition of the jews at Damascus reminds us of the dark age when the blood of that sect was deemed a holy offering to god. According to the new York Tattler there is residing in Duane Street it that City a lady one Hundred and twelve years five and months old. She still retains Possession of All her faculties both mentral and physical in a remarkable degree. It May seem right to a Many to trouble himself very much about his neighbor s business but the end thereof is the great negligence Ofhie own. Principles they Tain to fall in blessings upon the children. I am most Happy to inform you gentlemen that i have this Day signed the Bill for the establishment of an Independent Treasury a measure of which you s it Cak in decided commendation. By this measure the management of an important Branch of our National concerns after a departure of nearly half a Century a ill be brought Back to the letter As Well As the obvious spirit and intention of the Constitution. The system now superseded was in fact one of those Early measures devised by the friends and advocates of privileged orders for the purpose of perverting the government from its pure principles and legitimate object vesting All Power in the hands of a few and enabling to Linin to profit at the expense of the Many. I need not inform you gentlemen that the effect of depositing the Public Money in the Banks was to lend it to those inst Tatiom generally without interest to be used As m part of their capital and that they Lent it out upon interest to their customers thereby largely increasing the stockholders. Thus the few were enabled to enrich themselves by using the Money which belong to the Many and the Public funds Wero in fact drawn from the Treasury without an appropriation by Congress in Clear violation of a constitutional prohibition. The manner in which this abuse crept into the government and fastened itself upon the country with the acquiescence of the whole people As an impressive lesson teaching the necessity of perpetual vigilance and Energy in detecting and resisting the first encroachments however seemingly trifling upon the principles of our government. From the de polite of the Public Money in Banks it did not necessarily follow that the Banks should use it. Its use was never until lately and then Only to a limited extent directly authorized by an act of the government. But As the Banks were in the habit of using deposited they silently treated those of the government like those of private citizens and the government As silently acquiesced in the practice. As for Many years the revenues of the government wore my Erate and the surplus was wanted to pay the principal and interest of tho Public debt the amount loaned out by the Banks was comparatively Small and the profits of the Stock holders less considerable. But in the Progress of the Goveri unsent its recent fee increased and the amount a exploded became greater until it amounted to five ten and Afler the extinguish ment of the Public debt to nearly thirty millions. The disastrous effects now be came apparent. An extensive interest had sprung up derived from the use of the people s Money and having powerful inducements so to act upon the government As to increase the source of their income. Their influence was first directly Felt in interfere a is to prevent the it meat of the Public debt Timi in Elf byte Ihrol tie upe of the Public preen pm Iama. R. M. T.
