the foundation of thotwo great rart:et in this coun

in this, an'a in the Governments of the other quar
ters of the gkb-v fundamental in their character,
aiid sncli as have existed ever since jneil wercfirst
Torpied into social communities. The beginning
pointof these differences was, as to where the jVrop--itr

-whether it should boconiinued fn-the possession of

on Ihe one- Jiand,- and lhc laboring many, on the
other, political power Las been vibrating, as the
penilulmn, from the origin of man'g social condi
tion to tlie present period of time. Division of
sentiment npon this great problem, m this country,
made its mo3t remarkable development in the Con'
vention which framed die Constitution of the
United States. In tint Convention there were
two parlies one of them headed by Mr. Alexander
Hamilton, who contended for "that form of Govern
ment which wasstrongest and farthest removed
from tlie Tnas of tlie people, and based npon the
old monarchical, or .kingly nofion, that man was
made for government, he not being capable of gov
emins' himself. The other party wa headed by
Mr. Madison, who contended that government was
made forman. lie being honest and capable of gov
eininfr himself! The ardent conteit, or struggle,
between tiiendvocatcsof apopularform of govern
ment, vesting the sovereign power iu the mas3 of
the people, and those who stood opposed to it, re
sulted in the formation pf the Constitution of the'
United Stales aa it now stands less republican, in
.many of its leading-pio visions, than waj desired by
those who had confidence in the integrity, hon-
city and capability of the people to govern them-
jselvoi. IV ihiff referocts to the history of our
country, it will be at once perceived when and
where this division of parties took its rise and had
It is most manifest that the difference of opinion
between parties, or, more" properly,, speaking, the
leaders of parties, (for tLc,great mass of UieAmeri
in people are Democratic in sentiment,) does, not
consist in name merely, but has a 'deeper founda
tion in the United Siaics, and dates its origin an
terior to any 'appellation by which parties are
known and designated in modern times. After the
ratification of the Constitution of the United States
by thescreral btatcs, and when the uovernmcnt
had been put into sntceslui operation, ttiese same
parties made their appearance in another form, and
under another and more Imnosins name: one or
them contending for tho exercise ol all those pow
eis which hid been sought as express grants, and
refused in the, formation or the Constitution, by
implication or a lntitudinous construction of the
Constitution flie other contending Tor a Govern
ment of limited aud defined powers, and for a rigid
and strict construction of the Constitution One.
of these parties was called the Federal party the
other, the llepulican or Democratic party.
The Federal parly, from the rormatlon of the
Government down to the moment when I stand be
fi)re you, hare contended for. the exercise or all
doubtful powers on the part of the General Gov
ernment, without any restraint or limit as to the
Constitution. The Constitution of the United
States has roost 'generally been, viewed by them as
a paper wall, through which they could thrust their
fingers at pleasure, or a piece of gum elastic that
could be expanded or contracted at the will and
pleasure of the Legislature.
The Democratic Jlepnb'ican party hold, that this
Government is one of limited and fixed powers;
:md that no power can or should be exercised, un
less it is expresly granted; and the incidents ne
cessary and proper to carry it into full and fair ef
fect I presume, at this period of my public, life, it is
hardly necessary for me to -state where I stand in
rafert nee to these questicnor limitations or Con
stitutional power. Mv nast public course has crlv-
should be exerclshl of doubtful character, either
by the State or Genera! Government. If tlie exer
cise of doubtful power by the State or the Federal
Government are acquiesced in by tho people, and
pcrs'rf led in on the part of the law maker, the
whole organic law of the land becomes virtually
repealed, and the discretion of die usurping legisla
tor becomes the measure and only limit of hispow--er.
Our only hope and safeguard against a con
summation of tbe fearful tendency of Federal poli
cy, on the part of the iienera! Government, iu all
questions of doubtful power, is in a direct appeal
to the States Tor an enlargement of such power, or
such an expression of opinion on their part, as pro
vided in the Constitution of the United States, as
will settle all doubt or ambiguity in relation to tbe
exercise of such doubtful power. And if tho peo
ple of the several States are convinced that the ad
ditional grant of power aked for is for the public
good, it will bo most readily conceded ; and if, on
tho contrary, they arc not well satisfied that it is
fiir the public good, it should be withheld, and the
Government rigidly confined tvithiu its prescribed
In this connection, I do most solemnly declare,
that, at this very period of time; I believe that the
heavy and weighty responsibility rests upon the
great Democratic party or this nation, of recurring
once more to first principles to the original de
sign of lhc Government and, ir possible, to bring
it back to its primitive republican simplicity and
economy; and also to confine itwith'n the ancient
landmark's as laid down by Jefferson and his patri
otic associates, in tlie earlier and purer days or the
ir there are divisions orthe Democratic party. I
claim to belong to that division of it whicli will
stand firmly by the combined and recorded judg
ment of the people, until changed or modified by
them; and which will, if it has the power, carry in
dustry, economy, reform and rigid responsibility in
to every department of the Government. I be
hii;r to that division of Democracy proper, which is
progressive, not in vio'ation of, but in conformity
with, the law and the Constitution, and which holds
that man is capable, when it beantux necessary, of
altering or amending the law and the Constitution,
so as to conrorm to his advancedand constantly ad
vancing social andiutellectuctl condition. J nm well
aware that there are some whose fears are easily
aroused, and who become greatly alarmed when
ever there is a proposition to change the organic
law, either of the States or General Government,
.-which I apprehend, proceeds from a want of confi
dence, on their part, in the integrity and capacity of
the people to govern themselves. To allvho en
tertain sueh feats, I will most respectfully say. that
I entertain none, and with due defercuee to their
fears and opinions, will ask the question, If man is
not capable, and not to be trusted with the gov
ernment ot hini'c'f. m he to be trusted with the
government or others? Who, then, -will govern ?
The answer must be. Man fir wc have'-no angels,
in the shape or men, a-? yet, who are willing to take
charge or our political ailaiis. Man Is not perfect,
it i true, but we all hope he is approximating per
fection, and that he will, in the progress of time,
reach this grand and most important end in all hu
1 1 ave not deemed it improper, nor o.it. of place,
on this occasion, to make a single allusion to the
young men of our coun'ry Many of them, while
at our academies and college, aifd when in the
study of their profession, imperceptibly imbibe no
tion? prejudicial to Democracy. Their wealth, and
too frequently their preceptors many of whom
are biggotted and supercilious on account or their
literary attainments, ami assumed Miperionanror
mation on most subjects inspire their sfuuents
with false ideas of their own superiority, mixed
with a superabundance ofseir-esteem, which causes
them to reel that the gi cafraas or mankind were
intended by their Creator to bo" '.'hewers or wood
and drawers or water;" tliat it is in this Govern
ment, as it was in olden Rome, between the Patri-
ctans ami i'leoeianj; where, 111 fact, tho people
tnever enjoyeil lor on" moment, that pure liherty
and freedom of thought and of action irliiMi wn-

;lass oonr young men I have a few remarks to
iimic, iu it-ieiiame io iue great principles OI ue-

fear, they have, as yet, wholly failed to comprehend.
'and if comprehended, not duly appreciated. And
fn doing so, I.do not intend, on this occaeion to
enter into ' any analytical or metaphysical dis

more God-like than he is. It is the business of the
Democratic party to progress in the work of In

It will be readily perceived by all discerning

in his vision; one up which all, jn proportion to
their merit, may ascend. While it extends to the
humblest or all created beings hero oh earth below,

mel)t a sub:ct u t h attlUiu much nnhWc at
tention, and no doubt will continue to do so for
sometime to come. How far the General Govern
ment can go in constructing works of InternaUm
proveraent, without an infraction of the Constitu
tion of the United Slates, and an encroachment up
on tlio reserved rights of the States, is a question
that ha3 long been discussed by the ablest and wisest
statesmen or the age, without coming to any satis
factory conclusion. Tbo precise line at which the
national character or a work of Internal Improve
ment ceases, and the local one begins, approximate
so closely, that it is difficult to determine, even by
those who are disposed to construe the Constitu
tion fairly, where to fix the limit.
A public work, which is considered national in its
character by one class of politicians, is considered
local by another; hence, much perplexity and great
difficulty is felt in the exercise of thisnower. on the
part of the General Govtrnment, over any work of
luuyn.-u iuiproveraeiiis. Having now, However,
in view, the many important works, about which
there is so much solicitude on the part of a large
portion ol the people or the United States, and
which is now occupying the attention or the Gen
eral Government, my own deliberate opinion is,
that before the General Government advances
another stepiti works of Internal Improvement, at
least those of a doubtful character, there should be
an appeal made to the several states composing the
compact, to definitely fix and accurately describe
the utmost boundary of power intended to be exer
cised by the General Government in the construc
tion ot works orinternal Improvement. The Gov
ernment, on a subject so erave and dtenly import
ant as tlie one now agitating the public mind, should
move within limits well ascertained, both as to
power and the amount of money to be raised by
taxes, and to be expended in the various projects of
internal improvements, which may herealtcr be
projected. If tlie States intend that the General
Govemnifnt shall embaik in a gigantic scheme of
Internal Improvements, let the power be conferred
as provided in the Constitution or the United States
ii nor, let tne uenerat Uovernment at once be ar
rested, and confined within the written command or
tlie States who spoke it into existence.
The subject or Internal Improvements by our
own local authority, has also excited a deep and
lively interest among our people, in many portions
of the State.' A well regulated and judicious sys
tem oi internal improvement, intended and ealcu
lated to give all reasonable facilities to the Mtehan-
ical, Agricultural, and Commercial pursuits or the
country, ought to receive such aid and encourage
ment from tlu State as will come clearly within the
nnanciai ability ol the people. If suchaid has lobe
given by the creation or State indebtedness, the
Legislature that creates the indebtedness sliorjd
never fail to provide the means to mrct the annu
ally accruing interests and the principal as they fall
In connection with thelnternallmprovementsof
this, as well as other States, there i3 a question or
mucn importance, wnicii lias not, hitherto, very
generally attracted the attention of the people iu
this State. It is one that involves the first princi
ple offi-ec government itself; and will no doubt ulti
mately come before the judicial tribunals of the
country. Or beforp. llio sivnroitrn Tionnlr Inr finlinn
and final adjustment. How far the Legislature caii

which may be authorized to construct works or In

individuals, without their consent, i3 the question
referred to; and it is 6no not well defined in the
public mind, nor distinctly understood by the peo
ple. The right bi.Ejnmcnt Domain does not, in tint
Slate, auttorizw&he Legislature to go beyond, in
appiopriating the property of the citizen, what i
absolutely- necessary lor the public good, and r.ot
then without just compensation being made there
for. To set apart .so much of the real property
owned by the citizens, a3 may he desired by every
company which assumes that it is constructing a

people calling themselves free, and who claim to
have guarantees which will protect them in the en
joyment of life, liberty and property, is a question
of no ordinary magnitude, and is entitled to their
mature and profound consideration.
The bet policy to be adopted Vy the General
Government, in regard to the future management
or our immense public domain, has, for some time,
engaged tho public attention, and will continue to
do so, until some permanent disposition bo made of
it by the General Government. There is a class of
persons in the United States, more properly denom
inated land-monger?, or land-monopolists; who de
sire to have the public land thrown Into market in
large quantities, in the shape of land warrants, and
grants to incorporated companies, so as to enable
them to become tlie purchasers at reduced prices,
and then to realize immense fortunes from the land
less thoiisands, who emigrate to the new States and
Territories, and settle upon them. This spirit of
speculation and plunder, in the homes of the "reat
mass of toiling thousands, ought at ouce to be ar
rested, and stifled to death, by timely and judicious
legislation. After some experience, and mnot. in

aroused to the consideration of this great scheme or
every head of a family in the United States being.
Srovided with a home he can call Jus own. It is
ased upon the eternal principles of Justice, and if
renleta with all that is noble and cood In our nature
and sooner or later,must become the settled policy i
of the Government. I never recur to mis great
thwner without an expansion of all the nobler qual
ities of the soul. It is one upon which I delight to
dwell, and coiitemp'ate tho future good that is to
flow upon the coming generations. L will refrain,
howercr, from saying more, on the present occasion
npon a subject which isintcrwoven with the dearest
sympathies ofmy so'il.
The true policy ot tne uovernment,cotJi state anu
General, consists in the education and diffusion of
general information among Die great mass of the
peoplot anil at the same time-, employing all meaii3
oy wnicii inc. toning, prouucing taoor o: inc. coun
try can bo elevated to its properpontion. Ourchil
dren should be made thoroughly acquainted with the
genius and spirit of our beautiful, though complex,
form of government. The Constitution of the Uni
ted States, and of the Stale?, with their commenta
ries, should be made one of the principal books to
be studied, and nnderstcod, in all the schools of the,
country and thu3 a thorough knowledge of the
genius and character of ourfree institutions acquired.
And if it shall be the pleasure of Divine Providence
to exempt this, so far, tavored nation from all wars,
for the next filly yers. and it be permiUed to go
on as it has been cultivating the arts and sciences
of peace it will have no superior, if an equal,
throughout the civilized or Pagan world. If Agri
culture. Mechanics, Internal Improvements, with
all their legitimate incidents, are permitted to ap
proximate any thing like perfection, we will bo tho
most powerful and formidable people on God'shab
itablc globe. Why not, then, pursue that line of
policy which -will enable ua to attain this great and
important end, making this people tho -wonder and

"TWo should adopt, as a rule for our future actionp
that which was laid down by the Imsiortal Jefferson,
on the 4th of March, 1801;

tho American people have given to all nations,
with whom they have any intercourse, the mostin
contcstible prooror their prowess, and military-skill
and power on the field of battle, which has caused,
and will continue to cause the rights of our citizens
to bo respected abroad t Let our people go on,
rivalling each other in all the pursuits of peace; let
them acquire renown in the civil, equal to that which
they have acqnircd on the field of military glory,
and which 13 much more valuable and honorable
than all the glare or tho military world combine J.
I would t e doing great injustice to ray own reel
ings were I not, in this connection, to declare
though it may be considered by some as being In
bad taste tliat I would rather wear upon my gar
ments the (huge of tlie shop and the dust of the field,
as badges or the pursuits of peace, than the dazzling
epaulet upon my shoulder, and the sword, with its
clittcrinsr scabbard, danc
scabbard, dangling by my side-the in-
sienia or honorable and cloricus war.
w The Army and 2avy in this, as in most or the
nations of the earth, are the great absorbants of
the people's substance. They are they two great
arteries that will, unless confined within proper
limits, bleed this, as they have .some of the other
governments, well nigh to a state of exhaustion.
Even lure, whrrrwe seem to have a fixed pre
judice against large standing armies, and extensive
navies, it is almost startling to announce tlie aggre
gate amount the people have to pay for the support
of their Army and Navy, in time of profound peace.
According to the most" recent estimate made out
by the late Secretary of the Trensuiy an I submit
ted to the Congress or the United States, it will
require, during the present fiscal year, twenty-one
million or dollars to sustain our Army and 2avy ;
which is a tux or neatly on 5 dollar per hrad, Lr
every man, woman and child in the United States.
The entire amount collected from the American
people, by the General Government alone, in the
shape of taxe", and expended since the 4th of March,
1789, to the 4th March, 1840, is $1,42$,000,000, in
round numbers. Ol this amount 513,000,000 has
been piiJ out in the shape of a national debt, con
tracted for the purpose of carrying on our varujus
wars, at home and abroai', which Will leave $-015,
000,030. Out of the last natre 1 sam, there ha3 been
paid, for the support or the Army and Navy, six
hundred million ilollais, exclusiie r all pensions,
whicli is sixty-two millions, and is properly charge
able !o the Army and Xavy. It will be very readi
ly perceived from this simple statement or Tacts,
that two-thirds oi the whole amount or revenue
collected frotn the people has been appropriated Tor
the support of these two branches or Government.
It is not my purpose, In making this allusion to this
vast amount that has br-cn expended ia the name of
ourJittje Army and jNavy, to detract aught from
their high character; but to show thai they are
costing the American people more, in proportion
to the number employed in the naval and military
service, than any other goverununt in the world;
and ftr the further purpose of showing, that raval
and military glory is not without cost, even in this
republican form of government of ours, and that'
too, where most of tlie fighting, in lime of urinal
war, is done by tlie citizen oiiher. title 1 make
these remarks,! am not to be understood as being
opposed to the Government keeping in resdines- a
suuicient physical force to maintain tho honor, ditr-
J "y and rights or oarcoiiLtry, at home or abroad,
upon the. ocean or upon the land." But I must be
permitted, incidentally, to recur once more to that
great scheme, tha Homestead Policy, aa being bet
ter calculated in all its bearings, if faithfully and
successfully carried out, fur building up tho most re
liablo physical three for this country in time of war.
If this scheme is once estaVished, and carried out
in good faith, it will build up a standing army, in the
character of the citizen soldier, that will, by its own
productive poiversupport itself in time of peace,
and will be in readiness td defend the country in
time of war. It is one that will protect your fron
tier settlements against any disturbance growing
out of unfriendly or hostile'relations with our num
erous Indian tribes. And in the event of war with
any. foreign power that dare invade the soil of free
dom, it would be the first to obey its country's call,
and alti-r having jmrticipated in the heat aud strife
of battle the benignant star of peace once more
resuming the ascendent the citizen soldiers who
compose it would, wi h alacrity, return to their
homes and their firesides, to their wives and their
children, r.n 1 there renew the avocations of peace.
This would be a stinding army composed of the
citizen soldier in fact, that would go when war
came, and come when war went, and is the only
kind of an army, that can be sifcly relied upon and
trusted by a republican or a Democratic tonn of
government, either in peace or in war.
