The power given by the Constitution to the Execu tive to interpose his veto is a high conser vative power, but in my opinion, should never be exercised, except in cases of clear violation of the Constitution, or man ifest haste and want of consideration by Congress. Indeed, I have thought that for many years past, the known opinions and wishes of the Executive, have exer cised undue and injurious influence upon the Legislative Department ofthe Gov ernment, and from tills cause I have thot' our lyitetM w-as in danger of undergoing a great change from its true theory. The personal opinions of the individual who may happen :o occupy the Executive Chair, ought not to control the action of Congress upon Questions of Domestic J Policy, nor ought bis objections to be in terposed, w ben questions of Constitutional power have been settled by the various Departments of Government, and acqui esced 111 bv the people. lid Upon the subject of the tariff, the currency, the improvement of our great highways, rivers, lakes and harbors, the will of the people as expressed through then representatives in Congress, ought to be respected and carried out by the Executive. 4th The Mexican war. I sincerely rejoice at the prospect of peace. My life has been devoted lo arms, yet I look upon war at all times and under all circum stances, as a national calamity to be avoided, if compatible with national hon or. The principles of oui Government, as well as its true policy, are opposed to the subjugation of oilier nations and the dismemberment of other countries by conquest. In the lahfftl&gS of the great Washington, "why should we quit our own, to stand on foreign ground." In the Mexican war, our national honor has been vindicated, amply vindicated, and in dictating terms ot peace, wo may afford to be forbearing and even ip.i 1 . ir.!, 11 tne Administra tion go wroflg.is there any obligation up on the country to uphold it in ils career of wrong? On the contrary, have no" the people the powerand the right, anil is it not the duty, to arrest it in ils course, and, ns speedily as may be, to put it upon the right track? The argument on the other side if in deed thai can be called argument which is only denunciation seems to assume that the Government is the country or rather that it is something ttbov" and su perior to the country. That is no part of our political Cilth, Such is not our democracy. We hold that our rulers are but the servants of the country, and ihat their official conduct and their public measures are at all limes, whether in war or pe ice, subject to the examination and t lie control of the people, according to the forms oflhe constitution. The Pres ident and his advisers ruay prooose what ever plans fo the prosecution of the war they in their- wisdom may see fit; but let them not imagine, in the fulness of their self-saiisfaciion that ihey are the people and that all wisdom shall die with thorn. There are those whose rights and whose duty it is to supervise their plans, and if it so seems good, to change and reject them; obtaining concessions and modifications ol the treaty as approved by the Senate of! the United State, lrom our own com missioner or Commissioners, and if they were to be guided by (he past, as I had occa-ion lo observe in a former letter, they won d procrastinate negotiation, or con tinue the war, in the Conviction thai the more the one wa procrastinated, or t m loiifer the other was continued, ttie great er vould be their ultimata advantage 1 hav, however, strong hopes that neither Mr. Sevier nor Mr. Clifford will permit am trilling 011 the part of the Mexicans, bul will tell ihem at once, without parley. "Gcllemen, here are our terms accept tlum or reject them, as you think proper. We are the conquerors, and have and will exercise the right of conquerors in dicta tiig our terms."

Neither the government nor its organs have any shadow of right to complain of the people, so far as the war is concerned. Never was there a readier or more en- ! thusiastic response than was made by our gallant countrymen to the executive call i for troops. Without distiction to party, without reference lotheir individual views upon the origin or necessity of the war, they flocked lo the standard of their country; and with a generous rivalry bore her eagles in triumph wherever they I were ordered to plant them. Slates, like Kentucky and South Carolina, whose people were known to disapprove ofthe war, were prompt to meet the requisition of their President, and freely gave their bravest Spit ill to the call of the country to arms. Among the foremost in the fight were the sons of these gallant Stales, do ing deeds of valor and displaying ex amples of heroic devoted nesi that will live and glow in the pages of our history lill the Republic shall be no more. And are the peopleof Kentucky and South Caro lina, who have expended so much blood and treasure in ihis war, and whose names arc identified with its most bril jliaij achieve mcnls, to bo denounced as irailors to the country because Miry dare to differ from the President and his ad visers upon their plan for the conduct ol the war !
