Fortunately for us at this moment,
"when the balance of trnilo is jrcutly
against us, and the difficulty of
meeting it enhanced by the dis
turbed state of our money affairs,
the bounties of Providence have
come to relieve us from the conse
quences of past ctrors. A faithful
application of the immense results
of the labors of the last season will
afford partial relief for the present,
and perseverance in the same course
will, in due season, accomplish the
rest. We have had full experi
ence, in times past, of the extraordi
nary results which can, in this rc
'tepect, he brought about in a short
period, by the united and well; di
rected efforts of a community like
ours. Our surplus profits, thecner
gy and industry of our population,
a n d the wonderful advantages
which Providence has Ijestowb'd
upon our country, in its climate Js
various productions, indispensable
to other nations, will in due .time
afford abundant means to perfect the
most uselul of those objects, for
which the states have been plung
ing themselves of late in embarrass
ment and debt, without imposing on
ourselves or our children such fear
But let it be indcllibly engraved
on our minds that relief is not to be
found in expedient. Indebtedness
cannot be lessened hy borrowing
more money, or by changing the
form of the debt. The balance of
trade is not to be turned in our fa
vor by creating new demands upon
us abroad. Our currency cannot be
improved by the creation of now
banks, or more issues from those
which now exist. Although thce
devices sometimes appear to give
temporary relief, they almost inva
riably aggravate the evil in the end.
Tt is only by retrenchment and re
form, by curtailing public and pri
vate expenditures, by paying our
debt, and by reforming our bank
ing system, that we are to expect
effectual relief, security for the fu
ture, and an enduring prosperity.
In shaping the institutions and poli
cy of the General Government, so
as to promote, as far as it can with
its limited powers, these important
ends, you may rely on my most cor
That there should have been, in
the progress of recent events,
doubts in many quarters, and in
some a heated opposition to every
change, cannot surprise us. Doubts
are properly attendant on all reform;
and it is peculiarly in the nature, of
such abuses as wc are now encoun
tering, to seek to perpetuate their
power by means of the influence
thoy havo boon permitted to acquire.
Jt is their result, it not their object,
to gain for the few an ascendancy
over the many, by securing to them
a monopoly of the currency, the
medium through which most of the
wants of mankind are supplied to
produce throughout society a chain,
of dependence which leads all clas
ses to look to privilege associations
for the means of speculation and
extravagance to nourish in prefer
ence to the manly virtues that give
dignity to human nature, a craving
desire for luxurious enjoyment and
sudden wealth, which renders those
who seek them dependant on those
who supply them to substitute for
Republican simplicity and economi
cal habits, a sickly appetite for
effeminate indulgence, and an imita
tion of that reckless extravagance
which impoverished and enslaved
the industrious people of foreign
lands ; and at last, to fix upon us,
instead of those equal political rights,
the acquisition of which was alike
the object and supposed reward of
our revolutionary struggle, a system
of exclusive privileges conferred by
partial legislation. To remove the
influences which had thus gradually
grown up among us to deprive
them of their deceptive advantages
to tost them by the light of wis
dom and truth to oppose the force
which they concentrate in their
support all this was necessarily
the work of time, even among a
people so enlightened and pure as
that of the United States. In most
other countries, perhaps, it could
only be accomplished through that
scries of revolutionary movements,
which arc too often found necessary
to effect any great and radical re
form : but it is the crowning merit
of our institutions that they create
and nourish in the vast majority of
our people, a disposition and a pow
er peaceably to remedy abuses
which have elsewhere caused the
effusion of rivers of blood, and the
sacrifice of thousands of the human
race. The result thus far is most
honorable to the self-denial, the in
telligence, and the patriotism of our
citizens ; it justifies the confident
hope (hot thc-3' will carry through
the reform which has been so well
begun, and that they will go still
farther than they have yet gone rn
illustrating the important truth, that
a people as free and enlightened as
ours, will whenever it becomes ne
cessary, show themselves to be in
deed capable of self government, by
voluntarily adopting appropriate re
medies for every abuse, and sub
milting to temporary sacrifices,
however great, to insure their per
manent welfare. ",y ;"'
My own exertions for 'the fur
therance of these desirable objects
have been bestowed throughout my
official career with a zeal that is
nourished by ardent wishes for the
welfare of my country, and by an
unlimited reliance on the wisdom
that marks its ultimate decision on all
great and controverted questions.
Impressed with the solemn obliga
tions imposed upon mo by the Con
stitution desTous also of laying
before my fellow-citizens, with
whose confidence and support I have
been so highly honored, such meas

HARRISON AND REFORM.
The assemblage at the town
room on New Years day, furnished
a most cheering indication of the
spirit of the times. Notwithstand
ing the brief notice, and the severity
of the day, the house, was filled to
overflowing, and by such a congre
gation as wc have never before wit
nessed in this county. It was no
convocation of office-holders and
government menials,to devise moans
for perpetuating ill-gotten and much
abused power ; but it was a fair rep-
resentation of the varied interests
of a republican community of the
bone and sinew of the country an
assemblage of the people themselves
to consider their grievances and de
vise the remedy. As such, it wn
a sublime manifestation of the inhe
rent virtue and self-sustaining prin
ciple of a republican government,
'and well calculated to inspire the
patriot with an abiding faith in the
ultimate redemption of the country.
The Hon. Eziia jNIukcii presided,
assisted by four vice presidents and
three secretaries. Two of our del
egates to the National Convention,
Messrs. Biugos and Pakve, were
J present and addressed the meeting
at considerable length, giving a his
tory of the deliberations at llarris
hurgh, and the reasons which pre
ponderated with them in favor of
the Hero of the North Bend. These
it is needless to say, wcro cogent
and conclusive ; and the spirit in
which they were received by the
meeting was hy no means equivocal.
It was a cordial concurrence, and a
vote of thanks to the delegates.
The committee on business reported
a series of spirited resolutions, which
were discussed with much ability
by Messrs. Allen, Adams, Stevens
of St. Albans, and several other gen
tlemen, and unanimously adopted.
George P. Marsh, Esq. from the
committee appointed for that nur-
posc, reported an address to the
freemen of the County, which was
marked with the singular perspicu
ity and vigor of its author, and, un
less wc greatly err, will recommend
itself to the good sense of every
candid man who will take the pains
to peruse it.
.Letters were received lrom a
number of distinguished individuals
abroad, which wore duly noticed,
and will bo referred to more par
The publication of the message
puts it out of our power to say more
on this subject to-day. In our next,
however, we shall give the procee
dings in detail, together with the
resolutions, address, Sec. And for
the purpose ofaccommodatingtho.se
who may desire to send the doings
abroad, wc shall publish a few bun
died copies extra.
In view of this and similar dem
onstrations at home, and the ac
counts that reach us from abroad, we
can with great assurance bid our
political friends "be of good cheer,"
for the sky is bright. The Harris
burg nomination is every where re
sponded to with cordiality and en
thusiasm. Never did a measure so
