Again in speaking of die effect which this inca a Ura would produce in reducing the amount of our import us a consummation devoutly desired by All a what was my argument ? that the Bill would in a my a a ree especially after june 1842, diminish our imports Bee Auw we should then have a system of caul duties which would operate As an enc our a ment to our Domestic i manufacturers. Has proved that it diminishes the receipts of the government but two or three cents per acre. Which is the party that has Ever opposed this equitable and just principle and by the course which it has pursued would afford the Speculator an Opportunity of enriching himself by purchasing the House and the Home of this poor settler Over Bis head and thus depriving him of the fruits of his honest labor no sir no the Labouring men of the country know too Well which party is their True friends to be >er8uad-Ed to enlist under the whig Banner by the senator from Massachusetts. The right of suffrage is the most sacred political right which the citizens of a free government can enjoy. Like the right of conscience it ought Ever to be regarded As a question Between the individual Man and his maker with which no human Power ought to into refer unless by convincing the reason. Ing Freehold of the value of $.50, or renting tenements of the annual value of five dollars. The obvious injustice and ascertained i Utility of this regulation together with other causes led in 1821, to the Call Ofa convention for the revision of our state constitutions of that convention i had the Honor to be a member and in the discharge of the duties imposed upon me by that situation i Laboured and in conjunction with a majority of the convention Laboured successfully to abolish the Freehold qualification. The principle which i then advocated was established by the amended Constitution extending the right of voting for All elective officers of the state government to every citizen who should contribute to the support of government either by the payment of taxes in Money or by labor on the highways or by service according to Law in the Guitia. The results of experience and the Progress of Liberal opinions soon led to a further Extension and by an amendment of the Constitution finally adopted in 1820, the right of suf Vage was Given to every male citizen of full age who shall have been an inhabitant of the state for one year and of the county for six months preceding the election. This provision however does not extend to persons of color who by the Constitution of 1821, Are not allowed to vote unless they have been for thre i years citizens of the state and for one year before the election seized and possessed of a Freehold of the Clear value of three Hundred and fifty dollars and have been rated and paid a tax thereon. The government of new York has for several years been administered under tho Liberal amendment or 1826, in a manner which appeared satisfactory to the people. It is possible that there May be some who regret the Extension of the right Jef suffrage and who would be gratified by tho revival of the old qualification 1 do not believe that such a feeling is entertained by any considerable portion of our citizens. I am very sure that any attempt to restrict the exercises of tho right and More especially to restore the property qualification would be put Down by an overwhelming majority. In acting upon this subject my own course has never been influenced by any api prehension that it would be dangerous to the rights of property to extend the right of voting to those who were without property. Our experience has i think fully demonstrated that in a Community like that which composes a great majority of every state in our confederacy there is no reason for alarm in this re8>ect. With my Best wishes for your individual Prosperity and for that of the state to which you belong i remain gentlemen your obedient servant m. Van Buren. Parts and had strength equal to his height valor equal to his strength and Good temper equal to his valor so that he disdained to do an injury to a single person.
