advantages another Southern market
for our produce. I respect fully be
speak for this, as wel! as every other
substantial project of improvement
that may be presented, your liberal
and enlightened regard. In this con
nection, the further improvement of
our rivers, ought not to bo overlooked.
Many lasting advantages can be at
tained by the expenditure of small
sums, in the removal of specified ob
structions, that now interfere material
ly with the navigation of many of our
streams. The details of these, their
locality and estimated cost, are best
known to yourselves.
'But while I am the earnest advo
cate of everything that tends to ilevel
ope the resources of the State to
quicken and advance her growth, in
agriculture and the mechanic arts, in
commerce ami manufactures I am
not a friend to rash and improvident
expenditures. The faith of the State
ought not to be impaired, or endanger
ed for any improvements however
desirable. And it is gratifying to our
pride of character as a people, that
hitherto all our public engagements
h:ve Iiopii promptly' nnd faithfully
met. The credit of the State has hiili
crto escaped any reflection, either at
home or abroad, and this may assure
the world that repudiation will never
find a lodgment within our limits, as I
trust it may never find an advocate.
1 beg leave to mil your attention to
that portion of the revenue law, passed
it the last session, which relates to
the tax on merchants. It is, in my
judgment, unequal and oppressive, and
I respectfully recommend its modifi
cation. It was no doubt tlie resul' of
oversight in its framers. As the law
now stands it is a great hardship on
(hat class of men.
Some .imuudiiiciit niL'lit be made to
advantage, in our penal code, so far
ns rclatos to the punishment of slaves.
The piesent law, conferring power on
tlie executive, to commute-the punish
ment of death to imprisonment for life
in the Penitentiary does not, in my
judgment, extend to slaves. And cases
will often occur, where Oie pardoning
power ought to be exercised, but
where some punishment short of death,
would be gladly inflicted if authority
existed for it. Now it is death or no
punishment at all, in all capital con
victions of sldves. What additional
mode of punishment should bo adop
ted in such cases, is difficult to deter
mine. 'I he choice, perhaps, is limited
between confinement in the common
jail nd in the Penitentiary. The
punishment now inflicted on a slave
for larceny, is a mere farce, and has
no sort of terror connected with it
since he receives the same at the
hands of his master for every day
delinquencies. I submit to you, wheth
er there is any remi'dy for these de
fects in the law, consistent with sound
A vacancy lias occurred in the

Here 1 might close this communi
- cation, nsall the principal subjects of
Stato interest proper to be presented,
are embraced. But the question of
slavery, or rather the questions con
nected with it, have of late assumed
such importance, ns to demand my
notice and some consideration at your
hands. This institution, in my opin
ion, belongs exclusivrly to the States,
where it exists, and neither the Gen
eral Government, nor the other States
of the Union, have any right to inter
fere wilh it. directly or indirectly.
And if such right did exist, the subject
is of too delicate and agitating a char
acter to justify its exercise. 1 also
deny the power, claimed by many, in
the General Government, to exclude
slavery from the new territories
where it docs not exist. That power
is at least questionable, and it will bo
time enough to yield its existence
when it ia settled by the graver tribu
nals ol the country. In short, it seems
to mo that slavery in any aspect of it,
docs not properly admit of legislation
bv Congress, cither to determine
where it ihall or shall not go, or to
(abolish, limit, or impair it where it is
And certainly the repose of that sec
tion of the Union, where slavery ex
ists, is best consulted by total silence
on the part of ( otigress upon this deli
cate subject. While this is so. the
termination of slavery, if it is to have
a termination, is deeply involved in
the prudence and foibearance of those,
who are desuous to witness such an
event. Every at'empt to limit or in
lerfere with ii, by direct or indirect
means, tends but to perpetuate if, and
what is more, to weaken ami alienate
the feelings and affections of one sec
tion of the Union towards the other.
Let the people who shall inhabit the
new territories, determine the question
for themselves, when they meet to es
tablish a State Government. Their
right to do this is admitted by all, but
to exclude slavery from the territories
in advance, by the adoption of what is
called the ITilmot Proviso, is, m ef
fect, to foreclose the whole question.
1 am happy in the belief, that all diffi
culty on the subject will be obviated
at an early day, by the establishment
of State governments, both in Califor
nia and Sew Mexico ; .and-whether
they adopt or exclude slavery, is a
matter for themselves, in which we
have no concern, and about which, I
am sute, 1 fuel no solicitude. All
lovers of the Union all friends to
peace and harmony, will rejoice at
such a consummation. And it can
neither injure nor disappoint any class,
unless it be a few political agitators,
both in the North an J South, who
have found in this question a prime
element for commotion and distur-b-inee.
I have no sympathy with the
threats of violence and disunion, that
have been but loo often heralded forth.
on both sides of the question, as the
ultimate remedy. This is not the
proper mode of vindicating rights, be
tween two groat sections of the coun
try bound together by so many glo
rious recollections and inspired by
so many brilliant hopes and expecta
tions as belong to the future. I see
nothing in the present aspect of this
question to justify cither a resoit to
violence or disunion, or to threaten
them as remedies. If it should present
a graver feature, in its progress, let
the emergency dictate the remedy,
in the inc. iii time, let us insist on our
rights by all constitutional means, and
also resolve to maintain the Union
"it all Imzarils and to the, hist extrem
ity." J am willing to yield the honor
of disunion doctrines to those who
rely upon them as a cure to any pres
ent or probable evils to a rise from the
question of slavery. Upon ihem will
rest the responsibility (and a fearful
one it will be) of calculating the value
of the Union, and cheapening its dig
nity and duration, in the estimation of
any portion of the American people.
With the Union, wcjiave every thing
to inspire the hopes and impel the
energies of patriotism, amid ihe vast
field of improvement that lies before
us. Without it, we have nothing
worth maintaining worth living for
worth dying for ! Clouds and dark
ness rest upon such a future section
al jealousies border frays endless
coll sions tho , prostration of trado
and commerce, and the ruin of Amer
ican liberty, fill up the baleful picture.
Against such a contemplation, all men
of all parties, ought to turn with in
stinctive horror. The Union oughi
to be deemed invaluable as when it
was formed, it was deemed indispen
siblo. It is invaluable; and deserves
to be the last of human institutions
that shall fade before the trumpet of
Whether slavery is right or wrong
founded in good or bad policy, it
will run its course, and maintain its
place. And whenever slave labor
ceases to bo profitable, the institution
will no doubt be dispensed with, in
the same way and from the same mo
tives, which terminated it in the iorth
Eastern States, where it formally ex
isted. It asks for no piotcction, but
simply demands to be let alone. It
cherishes no spirit of propagandist!),
but acknowledges the right and power
of those who dispense with it to do so.
For the purpose, therefore, of vindi
cating our rights, as well as to allay
existing agitation, I recommend, that
you memorialize Congress in a firm,
vigorous, and temperate Appeal.
Hgainst all legislation on tho subject,
and leave the evil, if it bo an evil, to
correct itself, under the auspices of
local public sentiment, and local leg
islation and' allow the blessing, to be
enjoyed unmolested, under the sanc
tuary of Sute authority.
In closing this communication, 1
be leave to tender the assurance of
my best wishes for your success, in
the discharge of the high duties which
surround you, and lor tho lasting pros
perity and happiness of our beloved
