The Lyntis the Boyds the Harris a the Stephen sons Tom Hawkins the Spencene and All the other names that Barq been Nihof the Raabb the land a Public thieves and Twood Lersy save Only one Samuel Swartwout who was not detected until the year 1838. It was by Andrew Jackson that the defaulter Boyd was appointed to office at the recommend atom As the charge runs of the convicted defaulter Lynn. It was under the administration of the hero of new Orleans that the famous Quot better let it be Quot letter was addressed to the Treasury department. It was during the same administration that the Long list of letters to Harris extending nearly through three years were written letters so triumphantly thundered Forth from the stump by the whig orators of last season. It was against the old veterans now a private citizen in his quiet Hermita a and against his and minis action Alene that this documentary special pleading could be brought to Bear though Date were Seldom noticed and the matter was often shuffled off at random As if Van Buren were the party concerned. And now. How stand the facts 1 what do we learn from the authentic official returns extracted from the archives of the nation and formally Laid before the representatives of the people in Congress assembled 1 what say these disinterested unimpeachable unanswerable witnesses they Tell us and in a language which even the Reckles spirit of party dare not gainsay that under that administration so Sam uselessly reviled the Public Money was More honestly collected and kept than it Ever has been with one single distinguished exception since the institution it of the government. They Tell us that of every Hundred dollars which passed into the hands of the so called Quot Public thieves Quot appointed or continued in office by Andrew Jackson to collect the Revenue of the i used states nine i a none dollars and edgy by four cents passed safely out again. From the South Western Seu until. Last year s Battle cry. Replied to by official . Amount of Deal cations by Chili Peiin agent in each admin it Starlion. Under Jackson s the least since Washington s.

Forth to the world la slanders against Tjie Public officer of the american rest Public until nameless and we find Van Iii he Toufi eters receives honest beyond any former Axa Ciiab since 1797 having failed to a my Over less to an a ten cent piece Only out of every dollars that has passed throw go their be during the collection thu safely and honestly effected of this sixty Sik i linens inks were almost wholly disused As Posi tories and the Treasury department has not even bad in their place the Safe guard of those Legal restraints which the Independent treas iry Law but just passed has at length thrown around the collection of the Public Revenue. How Strong the argument contained in such facts against the objections of those who contend that if the Revenue is entrusted for Safe keeping to Public officers instead of banking corporations the country will be ruined by Deal cations there is yet More behind on this subject of Deal cations. The whigs with All their Parade about it. Never took an extended or comprehensive View of the subject at All. The Dot fal cations by Dubur Ting agents have been mob than twice As Kivch As those by collecting agents. Yet not a word have we heard about them in All the tirades of the opposition. Why is this Why Are the lesser Deal cations paraded with such a storm of indignation before our eyes and the far greater ones by pay masters of the army and Navy pension agents Indian agents �6c. Left wholly out of sight 1 the total amount lost by collecting officers since the of the government is by the document already alluded to a Little upwards of two millions. The amount lost by disbursing agents in the same time is by the same document Page 8nearly five millions of which upwards of four millions were lost in the military and naval departments. Yet the two millions Are blazoned abroad and magnified into ten times that sum not a whisper do we hear of the five millions. Why is this i Auk again 7 let the following table reply. It is compiled by disbursing agents a Large a item Neier brought up by whigs least under Jackson. Virue reply to of actin no arguments. Curious old pamphlet published by Washington s Secretary of the Treasury. The humiliating defence to which Hamilton was reduced. Innocence no guaranty against slander. A Trust worthy coi Panson must be based on financial documents not on party abuse. Henby a. Wise was the party Champion and favorite Leader of the whigs. During the con Resti ii Al c in pain of 18 i9 Defalc ati a was tiie Welch word and Batttle cry and itis maj it by report no. 313, was their c mates Moi of political Finith. They seem to by Long Itier Confidence in that magic cry. Utile Rome documents containing figures and statements copied from the records of the Treasury and which even whig Assurance Camion Well get Over have come to Ligpit and the it Fdl Cetino report having out lived it but a Day of glorified existence is now Seldom produced t a tie the wondering Public but commonly lies. By mde the Quot stale last year s news Quot unnoticed and Uno Ijen de. On some Dusty shelf. We must be permitted to take it thence. It a now our turn to talk of Deal cations. We were deaf i ened last year with Dechi nation about corruption and speculation about that race of men. The longest leg ged and longest winded to be found upon Earth who j in the elegant phraseology of the Day were Quot ram Nied. Jammed and crammed Quot with Public plunder a rare of men whom Quot Twenty constables could not their very names Beacone a by word and a scandal even in the ears of the King governed a subjects of Europe a it spoke without cause and on sex Parte evidence furnishing by its falsehoods to the advocates of monarchy in the old world Welcome and powerful weapons against the democratic institutions of Tbs new. Let the whigs open their eyes on their conduct is political ascended ii Worth so much that they Are willing to libel America to Europe in order to obtain it must they Rule or mini Are these the evidences they furnish that if the people Grant them Power they will exert it with a single Eye to the Good of our common country ? 1 h Ive not done with this subject yet. It shall be lifted to the Bottom. It May be said that As the report comes Down Only to 18. 7, no evidence is therein offered As to the amount of Deal cation in collecting the Revenue under Van Huren. That evidence however is contained in his last annual message. It is there officially announced to us that since the suspension of tie Banks which occurred almost immediately after his installation there have been collected sixty six millions of dollars and the amount of loss sus tamed in the collection excluding Swartwout s Case j Quot cannot it is believed exceed sixty thousand dollars this is but nine cents on each Hundred dollars Little More than one half of the Deal cation even under the fortunate administration of Andrew Jackson and but one eight i of the Devalca and shows the percentage of Deal cations by disbursing officers under each administration administration of Washington 2nd term Twenty seven cents on $100 John Adams one term eighty three cents do. Jefferson two terms Yvone cents do. Madison two terms one Hundred of sixteen cts. Do. Monroe two terms two Hundred see even cents do. J. Adams one term tax a tix cents do. Jackson two terms to Aeiry three and a half cts. Do total $4,956,583 56, if or. Wise and his friends had the least hint How this table would read we can readily understand Why nut one word was said about disbursing Deal cations. We find that under Jackson s administration the Public Money was paid out with less loss than under any other administration Washington s not excepted. We find that compared with Jackson s traction. The loss Ander Jefferson himself was nearly a Tribie that under j. Adams it was nearly Hirte tunes As much that under John Adams it was nearly four times As much that under Madison it was of times As much and that under Monroe it was mgt re than nine times As much compared to the amount paid out. Even or. Wii a s ingenuity could not make political capital out of that let us Raj fiet fur a moment non these startling results. For every nine dollars lost in paying out the Public Money by a disbursing band and wife with a a Siffus to extort Money from . 9.and in the appendix or. Hamilton publishes not of messes. Monroe Mullen Barf Imd Venable. But also in Fiill the love letters to Tim Seloff mrs. Reynolds and the alternately beg gun Aad Hiril Ying letters of her Hosband. How loaded Down by party aces Sitison must a Man Tike Hamilton Bave been before he could Beve made up his mind to vindicate Bis of Kial honesty by a Public Blaz Oming Forth during the life time of his wife of such intrigue As that with �11 the attendant circumstances 4 i do not credit the charge theft made against Washington s Secretary of the Treasury and which a at such a sacrifice rebutted by by m. His defence bears the impress of truth and fully vindicates him in my eyes from the imputation of official dishonesty. Jeff Erson himself Bis uncompromising political opponent bears this testimony to Bis private integrity a a Hamilton was indeed a singular character. Of acute understanding disinterested Onest and honorable in All private transactions amiable in society and duly valuing virtue in private life yet so bewitched and perverted by the British example As to be under conviction that corruption was essential to the a co resp. Vol. In. P. 451. I have nut alluded to the charge then As for a moment believing that Hamilton was guilty of the breach of Public duty imputed to him. I have brought it a Only As a reminder that those who Are exposed on the Pinacle of official station Seldom escape the Enven Omed arrows of slander and that a plausible tale can readily be fabricated against the most honorable Roan. This is no reason at All Why we should neglect to examine with scrupulous care the doings of Public men and the higher the rank the More rigid should be the scrutiny. But it is an excellent reason Why we should nut condemn hastily unheard on a Mere party accusation. It is an excellent reason Why we should compare what is with what has been. We cannot compare the vague and declamatory abuse of the present party papers with that which teemed from a similar source in r rarer Days. Such Abune is Short lived. That Poison Plant is commonly an annual and Seldom survives a single Winter. Could its loathsome existence be prolonged posterity might hardly cry Dit the rancor that could give birth to it or Sanction it when born. But it Dies and is no longer to be found. We can however compare financial Sute ments. They Are tangible have been officially preserved and furnish trustworthy mate rials to judge the present from the past. These 1 have brought Forward in this communication. The language they speak is More powerful than can be any comments of mine. I leave them with my fellow citizens. Robert Dale Owen. Bold a a a be Long enough to squeeze a settled edit out a f under that of the elder Adams him m a word the race of "leg-1 treasurers Al lab Public such if a Nield Sample of tie language Winch was employed by whig orators and whig journalists to per Bude the credulous that the corruption among Public officers in these Days is equally without bound and without example reckless. Ruinous and far beyond that of any other adm i to atlatl hence the foundation of the government. Honest men were half persuaded that Public office was but a notifier name for licensed swindling that scarce half the i Money that passed into the hands of collectors and receivers Ever reached the Treasury and that Iti be a deed pleasing to god and honorable be a. That broke through the restraints of every sys fore men. To expel the spoilers and their chief and cannot therefore usefully referred Toas but it will be asked Why exclude Swartwout the reply depends on the object we have in View in these enquiries regarding Deal cations. The numerous defaults of Public officers Are urged As a reason Why the Public Money cannot be safely trusted to Itse men. As proposed by the sub Treasury Law j Bui ought to he deposited in Banks. Now in his i last message Van Buren justly remarks Quot the Deal cation of the late collector at that City new York ran through All the modes of keeping the Public Money that have been hitherto in use and was distinguished by an aggravated disregard of do col. Andrey Hays. As we predicted the charge of federalism brought against col. Hays turns out to be a base fabrication. On the 2dth ult. Col. Hays published a card in the Vicksburg Sentinel couched in the following emphatic language a card. Or. Editor i have seen it stated in the Vicksburg whig that i was a federalist during the entire administration of Jefferson and Madison. I Offit ers. But i pronounce this assertion false. If made by a Black unholy Aix Ance of the a Mim with the abolitionists. Pius a a by tip Quot sunday Moi no my of new York a a a the following a a tract is from a Long article in the sunday morning news of 27th instant. The news is a temperate hot decided whig paper a this extract Wilt so. 1� this article it Speaks the sentiment which ought to animate breast of every american every True Friend to Bis country to the Union and to Liberty. We Call the attention of the whole so a the to this extract. Can it be possible thai any Awn at Tbs South let him belong the Rex he May can in any Way countenance or approve the Nittoly Alliance of of of the Verai political parties with the desperate fanatics do seem resolved to carry eat their mad schemes at the expense of our Happy Union and at the Hazard of a Servile War and the massacre of women and children ? when a Northern Man and a whig feels it his duty to sound the Tocsin of alarm and solemnly to Call on his Brethren to pause can the South doubt that there is danger is it possible that the fanaticism of party can be More Blind than the fanaticism of a Uli zionism and that a slaveholder can encourage the Northern abolitionist in his schemes of madness Folly and crime that he can Aid this deadly foe in putting the knife into the hands of Bis own slaves to Cut to throats of his wife and children or a Torch to fire his own dwelling this must not Jaimot be. If set i Are the rest a of party away with it Cassit from you a you would a deadly Poison. Who Are the traitors at the South that for the Hope or Orcis Are for mlle an unholy Union with a set of infatuated and infuriated fanatics and encouraging and stimulating them on in their schemes of insurrection and Mas Crasi it will to in vain for them to deny a participation in this Union of Northern whigs and abolitionists which must give to those fanatics a tremendous influence and bring their schemes to a speedy Issue which May shake this government to its Centre. That know or this onion it is As obvious As the Sun in the heavens they encourage and approve of it for the Hope of a temporary political Triumph. Doubtless they Are told by their Northern whig friends that when they get the Power by the half of the votes of the abolitionists they can control them and Check their mad career. Infatuated men do they not know that fanaticism can no More be influenced or controlled by reason argument or persuasion than the Arm of a Man could arrest the electric Shaft a a a c<9rful responsibility an awful retribution awaits the Southern politician who permits his on chastened ambition and the paltry Hope of office to make him an accomplice and an abettor in the diabolical schemes of Northern abolitionism. This retribution May be delayed for a time the delusion May be kept up until the mischief is done but let them not think to escape for in the Wrath of a deceived and betrayed people shr be Enkin led by the scenes of violence and massacre it will administer Justice with . Abettor or. Van Buren from the offices they Dis graced and deprive them of trusts they had so scandalously violated. To this wild torrent of declamatory abuse the democratic party oppose the Calm evidence of official documents figures which cannot lie state a lest 0/the comparative safety of either. I this is True. Swartwout was a defaulter for years without detection under the United states Bank Deposit system. And it would appear that he much preferred that system to the proposed restraints of the Independent Treasury Law. He was ments copied from the financial records of the trea one of the vice presidents of a conservative meet Hough the amount of default was Small compared sury going Back to Washington s Dayis and brought Down even to the present time. The House of representatives of hot Congress called by a Resolution from the Treasury i part ment. For a statement of the annual expenditures of the government from 1770 to 1837, Toff Ether with the amount of Deal cations by Public officers in every year during that period. The statement required is Given in Public document no. 10, now on the table before i. Ing. Held in new York january 2, 1818, some months before his detection the proceedings of which published at the madisonian office in pamphlet form now lie before me. In the resolutions of that meeting we find Van Buren s administration denounced in Resolution 5 As having deliberately formed and boldly avowed a scheme which would Quot cast the whole Power Over the institutions and business of the country into the hands of the National government and a com of consolidation Tyr up their country before their fellow citizens and the j Pended to the proceedings prepared by the officers world Well May the honest portion of the whig j of the meeting As a committee of whom or. Swart party read it with astonishment and the dishonest wout was one we find at Page 13, the following Portiin with shame a a we oppose the sub Treasury scheme because it at pages 10, 11. And 12, and we find a detailed �11 incl Cable enlarge the Powers of the executive statement of the total Revenue collected during each unite the purse and the sword in his hands contrary year since the commencement of the government to a intent and spirit of the Constitution endanger f with the exception of Washington s Rirs term the safety of the Public Money and expose it to be before i. The hands of the National government and acc what a rebuke do the mute figures of the it Dace Quot plier the Ultra Federal design i of Consolida ment contain against the men who to serve a Par a Quot thereby practically establishing and absolute to purpose have slandered the Public officers of Quot Anny Over the and i the address one Dollar has been lost by Jack of c yet who guard no other notice can he taken of it and if by talk of leg treasurers and Public m vol Ziroe s a gentleman who will persist in his butement i Day the race of wises and Ventis is and of s announce him a liar and a column Gator. I have had not then sprung up. Uliey were reserved to no disposition to conceal any political opinions i dazzle and enlighten our modern tunes j have entertained at any time and without going As the document which has been r. to Reich into detail of my ancient opinions i was attached of Down to 137 oui the Deal cations to the party in Virginia headed by John Taylor of Caroline author of the Virginia resolutions of 98, John Randolph Littleton w. Tazewell and other distinguished patriots of the ancient Dominion. I entertained the same opinion As did John Rundolph who on the floor of the United states Senate pronounced general Harrison a federalist of the Black cockade stamp. Of i see another article in the whig of the 26th which inquires whether i am Friendly to slavery or not. If the editor wishes to know whether Lam an abolitionist or not 1 answer in the negative. I have been a slaveholder from the age of Twenty one to this time and i deny All constitutional right in the Federal government to interfere with the question of slavery with or without the consent of the states or their owners. But the questions am i Friendly to slavery is very general. If thereby Quot White slavery Quot is meant i answer no and More e8 it scially am i Oppold to Selling White men and White women into bondage fur the Cost of trifling prosecutions. And i am Stoh More opposed to taking White men Alid women who having been thus sold Niay have run away from their masters and having thirty nine Lashea inflicted on their Bare backs us a conviction before a Justice of the peace Wilbou Fth Benefit of a constitutional Tea by jury. As the charges specified in the first number of the whig Are personal in their character and made upon the authority of a responsible gentleman in this place 1 have selected the columns of your paper to contradict the report rather than introduce personal matter before a Public Hays. Under Van Buren s administration thus far Are not of course to be found in it. Nor have i met Wilh any statements of these elsewhere. It May be to be however conclusive evidence of their Sui ill am Lunt that they have never been and hunted Down before us by the keen a cent and rapid Tongue of a Saga Iotis and sleepless opposition. Tie Stock in Trade of these gentlemen is scanty enough heaven knows and they Are not the men to suffer the smallest fraction of it to remain unemployed or unproductive. In publicly debating this matter latterly with several of the gentlemen who have been Pis pid to defend their cause on the whig electoral ticket of Indiana 1 have found but one reply made to such documentary evidence As this and that is that Kirbt when the documents were consumed by fire and the loss by Deal cation of collecting officers in each. Here Are the total amounts divided among the several administrations administration of Deal cations. Amt. Collected Washington second term $7,855 on $22,642,497 John Adams one Terra 244.945 on 33,985.647 Jefferson two terms 28.3,497 00 111,003,042 Madison two terms 259,608 on 128,988,86 Monroe two terms 653,827 on 167,190,927 ,.

I have cake lated the amount of , under each president fit Eata Hundred dollars collected. Here is the Taue losses under Wasabi Mon three cents on every Hundred dollars John Adams seventy two cents on ditto. Jefferson Twenty five cents on ditto. Madison Twenty five cents on ditto.

That it Isth admin Stratioti of plundered by a Hundred bands where one cannot now reach this opinion of the Independent Treasury plan is truly curious coming from a committee of which Swartwout was a member. No one certainly knew better than he How much the Public purse was already endangered How it was exposed How it had been plundered and Bow conveniently one hand at least had been Able to Quot reach it. He heartily deprecated any change. He think Al Thiis Are very Well As they Are. Tie Quot opposes the sub Treasury is it unreasonable to conjecture that the thought of its felony clause might have crossed his mind at that moment 1 i Hope no one will hereafter deny that or. Swartwout at least Afi Eube sub Tiea Aury plan came up was a thorough of a whig. Or. Wise himself could not have worded the denunciation in More approved or orthodox terms than the above. But it is not my purpose to speak of the individual except in so far is Bis extra Ordinary Case bears upon the quest Leo before am. Swartwout s Deal cation is no argument in favor of a United states Bank and against an Independent Treasury 11 rather the reverse. Nor Dot gets it afford Especial cause fur suspicion against Public of cers generally.

This plea or rather assertion a contains no More argument than the Idle wind which passes us by. How do we know that Thomases under Monroe and Jefferson or any other could not have been made to appear ten times More aggravated than any contained in the Deal cation report 1 we do know that the Best and purest presidents we Ever had have been As bitterly accused of tolerating Deal cations As Ever Jackson and Van Buren have been. I have already in a former number proved the fact that the worst charges of speculation and corruption put Forth in our own Day Are out matched by those preferred against Thomas Jefferson. What administration Ever escaped such George Washington s 1 indeed no. Levi Woodbury has been fiercely attacked for official mismanagement but not As fiercely As was Washington s Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton. There is now on the table beside me an old pamphlet entitled Quot observations on certain documents Quot contained in to. 5 and 6 of the Hilary of the Quot United states for the year 1796, in which the Quot charge against Alexander Hamilton Lute Secre Quot iary of the Treasury is fully refuted. Written Quot by himself.

The plausibility of the charge and the strength of the presumptive evidence in Sopp it it of it May be inferred from the hot that or. Monroe and two other members of Congress or. Sub Lenburg and or. Venable gave or it to it were about to Lay it formally before the president and were Only prevented by a personal with a Milter and further that Hamilton himself to rebut it published this pamphlet of Eimy five pages awl Felt constrained to herein to give the flowing humiliating explanation of the suspicious Eire Mstan Quot the charge against me in a with one James Reynolds for purposes of improper pecuniary speculation a.

So Vii thousand a aeons Loer or Burnt. Whereas the whig Central committee of the Sute of Illinois proclaimed to the world about the first of August last past that there were seven thesal a changes to federalism in that state and whereas the result proved a few Days after that at least such changes did not vote there being a greatly increased democratic majority it is supposed by the friends of those changes that they must have lost themselves and strayed into Quot the Prairies All on fire Quot about which so much has been said and All been Burnt to ashes. Their anxious parents and friends would be eternally grateful to any one who would give them any information of these 7000 lost children and Reward him with a drink of hard Pider a Coon skin Short pipe or a Keg of hard crackers at his option. Apply at the Atlas Patriot from the sunday morning Jfe Vos. Now we will put the question Home to our political friends and we do it with grief and shame. Have you reflected on the dreadful Price you have to pay for abolition support f Are you prepared to have the question again agitated of the floor of Congress a one calculated to inflame our passions to madness and to pave the Way for a separation of the Union if done peaceably Are you prepared id incur a National debt of millions of dollars to be Laid As a tax on the Industry of the free Labouring class to emancipate a race of persons who Are More comfortably off better fed clothed and cared for in health and greatly better attended in sickness than a Large portion of our Labouring population Are you prepared after All this is done to incur a heavy amount of annual taxation to support a vagrant populate of spreading itself Over our Atlantic cities and fearfully increasing our Calendar of crime ? if not done peaceably Are you prepared for a Servile War in the fairest part of the Union ? for the cries of the murdered the revenged and the defenceless ? the female and the infant f the destruction of property and the horrors from which we shrink in anticipation ? can you form an unholy Alliance with a race of fanatics who would shrink from no Means by which their ends can be accomplished 1 and Only that you May prostrate the present administration without reflecting that your next step May be on the murdered bodies of your Southern Brethren 7 it is an unnatural and unholy alliances repudiate it. Success acquired by such Means can but entail a curse upon you and your posterity to the latest generations one which will make the very name of whig a by word and a reproach. If you hold the principles of the whigs of the revolution you will Beer a mind that the rights of the South were solemnly recognized by the Constitution and that the Best blood of the South was poured out to assist in attaining our Liberty and Independence. You will Bear in mind that whenever the country has been threatened the chivalry of the South has been first and Foremost in vindicating its rights and Honor. And if they Ever exhibited a front of Defiance it was Only after excitement had driven them to temporary madness. Our whig hands an Bret Breo we say again pause and re to there is nothing we have so much at heart As the Success of the whig cause but we of for Noble Emit by Nette Means and if Success is Only to be accomplished by an Alliance with abolition movements then do we Pray that god me in los mercy Send us so Complete and overwhelming a dts a Ai As will obliterate a wry not a of whig if with it we can Only pro sir be the abolition i Guestion and Dis Perse to Clouds threatening our common country by the agitation of the fanatic abolition lists.
