PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 2, 1802.
At a numerous and refpertable meeting of the citizens of Philadelphia held by adjournment in the Senate cbani- MATTHEW LAWLER, Efq> of the City of lad. chairman. The committee appointed for the pur pole, reported a memorial to the Con grefs of the United States, and one to the legillature of this date, which were read, and after being duly confideredj! were adopted, as follows : To the Sex.4?b and USE of FcKPHESENTArii'Id of the United Statks of A»"kkica, In Congress assembled. The Memorial of the Subscribers, Chi ef the City and County of Phi ladelphia, Respectfully represents., That your memorialifts viewed with deep concern the origin, progrefs and final palling of the law entitled—" An art to provide for the more convenient mization of the courts of the United -States." The time it was brought for ward ; the manner in which it was con • ducted through its feveral ftages; and more particularly the fubfequent appoint ments under it ; all excited their mod. fearful apprehenfieris ; the obftinate re •fufal of its fupporters at the time to fuf fer any alterations tt-j be made in it, could not fail to encreafe their fears ; and the recent bold avowal of one of its meft zea lous friends " that all mmendmehts pertinaciously rejx-cted," moft incorttro vertibly evinces that their alarms were well grounded—Your memorialifts view this law as originating r.ithcr in a dil'po fition to extend and perpetuate the pow . a party, thaji in adelire to piomotc the adniiniitration of JLiftic.e, or the true interefts of the country ; to detail all the realbns for the repeal of this law would be to recapitulate thofe given lb al the republican legators who have a *at?d the repeal.—Your memo-'. therefore, deeming the laid law impro per and unneceii'iiy, --ur hono rable body, that the fame may be n cd ; and your memorialifts as in duty bound will pray, See.

Respectfully shev.u •n gfeat and ; oncern is about to be dif ctilTed and decided, by tiie reprefcftta tives of the people, they conceive it highly important, that thofe reprefenta tives fb.ould know explicitly, the ! merits and wifhes Of their c nftitiients, upon the fribjedt; and that it is the in difoenfible duty of thofe conffituents to' commune information. That khoi ,h the Senators of the U nited S i are the reprefentatb ! ; yet, as tb..■/ are appo Immediately by the different ft ite 1 gif latures, it has been cnifomaiy for them to receive mftiuftious noon important HBp a fares, from the legislatures by whom the' That a bili, now before the Senate of the United States, for the repeal of a law entitled, " An act to provide for the more convenient organization of the courts of the United States," parted on the 13tn day of Februaiy, 1801, your memorialifts conceive to be »f the utuioft importance to the true interefts of our country ; and that it affords a proper and ■ecelTtry occasion of giving legiflative inftruAione to the Senators, reprefenting • the ftate of Pennfylvania, in the federal legiflature. The law in qneftion was palled with a degree of overbearing insolence, and a determined abuse of power, which can never be recollected by the real friends to the union without regret.- Thofe who oppofed the law, faw its progrefs through the two houfes of Con grefs with indignation ; they viewed it as a daring experiment of an expiring party, to afcertain how far the conftitu tion Wight be made fubfervientto thepiir pofe of perpetuating that power, which the people bad determined no longer to truft in their bands. The oftenfihle objeft cf the law is to promote the adminifrratiofl of juftice : yet from the manner in which it patted, and the indecent hafte with which the appointments under it were made, it is evident, that the adminiftration of juftice, was but a fecondary objeA. Should the conftitution of the United States be called in to fupport this exer tion of the legiflative power, as yet un- ! parallelled in the annals of the union ; | fhould this law be deemed, on conllitu tional grounds, as beyond the reach of repeal, well may we fear, that the inftru- j »ient which we have been taught to re- | verence as the ark of our fafety, will, at , fomc future period, be converted to the utter deftrucYion of our liberties. Our i jmpreflions Hpo t; are- the ,: jnare lively, wl tenfive plan upoi attempted : to eftabliCb evi dently calculate concentration of power in the United States' government, and, in a great de gree to deftroy viic independence of" tiie individual ftates. Your memorialifts, therefore, requeft, that the Senators reprefenting the Itate of Pennfylvania, may be in ft rutted to ufe their exertions, to procure a repeal of the fa id law. And your memorialifts will ever pray. (Signed) Mattiikw Lawlkk, Chairman. MATHEW CAHtY, Secretary. Ne-.v-Tork, Feb. 1. The lion, the Legiflature of this ftate met in Albany on Tuefday 1 a ft. The. Hon. Thomas Storm, of New- York, was unauimoufty elcrted Speaker of the Houfe of Aflcmbly. At 12 o'clock his Excellency the Gover nor met the two Houses in the' Assent* blj chamber, and opened the session with a speech, of which the folhwing is a copy : — Gentlemen of the Senate and Assembly, I cannot refrain at this firft opportuni ty prefented me for meeting the legifla ture, from congratulating you upon tiie fiourilhing condition of the United States. Under an adniiniftration exten fively pofleffing and highly meriting the public confidence, we have realbn to be lieve that the external and mutual rela tions of the ftates will command every proper attention, and engage every proper fup port. Our participation With our filter ftates, in the general profperily, ought not, however, to diminifh our exertions in cultivating thole peculiar advantages With which we arc favcred by the Su preme Difpenfer of all good ; and in obey, ing the injunrtion of the conftitution, to recommend Inch matters ta the confede ration of the legiflature, as fhall appear " to concern the good govt■rnment, wel fare and profperity of the flate," I feel confident that nothing in your power will be wanting for the promotion of thofe important obj'eP. The importance of a well regulated militia, as moft congenial with the fpirit of our free government, as in a great mealure fuperceding the neccllity of (fan armies, and as augmenting the pow er 2nd refpertability of the, nation, is fo obvious, and fo great, that too much attention can hardly be devoted to this rneftimable object. A general revifion of tiie fyftem appears to me t© be eiTen tial. Contrarieties exifl between the of the United States and this Itate, which impede and embarrafs the pro; under them. A fnflicient diicr is not left in the formation and prganiza f new corps,'or in the reduction of thofe already eftablilhed, circumftanccs ; and the la ~- requires the litional fanctddns to render It 5 nt. It may be proper here to men thatthr ftate has expended I firms in the purchafe cf Cannon,' i'ma'i arms and military ftores, and that no adetpiate provilion is made for their due preferv.ation ; and unlets this is fpeedily and effe&Ually done, thofe expenditures will be inagreat me a fur c rendered ufe lefs, as will particularly appear by the report of the CommilTary of military ft res, which will be delivered to you. Our conftitution contemplates tbeeftab lilhment of well fupplied magazines and arfenals, in every county of the ftate. If this cannot be literally complied with, it is fa rely our duty to endeavor to Con form to the fpirit of the provifion.' The advantaged refuTting to the a cultural and commercial interefts of the ftate, from facilitating the mean;; of com munication between different parts" of the country, have heretofore been acknow ledged in the liberal grants of the legif laturei Large funis have been granted for making canals, improving otir navi gable waters, eredfing bridges, md open ing roads—i>and the attention of the go vernment has recently been, particularly drawn to the incorporation of turnpike companies. The fuperintending and loit ering care of the legiflature) is ttill necef fary to extend the public utility of pur fuits of this nature; but it future incor porations of turnpike companies mould be deemed expedient, it may be worthy of confideratiou, whether former ones have been fuificiently guarded, in pre ferring the original laying out of the roads, in a manner moft fubfervient to the public convenience, arid whether a fnmmary mode ought not to be prefcrib ed to exact a compliance from thefe companies with the intentions of govern ment. The fyftem for the encouragement of common fcliools having been difcoritinu ed, and the advantages to morals, religi on, liberty and good government, arifmg from the general diftufion of krtow! beinjr univerf'ally admitted; perm: to recommend this l'ubjet cl tv your deli berate attention. The failure of one ex periment for the attainment of an im portant object., ought not to difcourage other attempts. Such other ma nay be deemed worthy of your notice, will be con nicated in fe of the feflion, as ufual, by rsetTage. Gentlemen, Wh left on the rapid prog of our population; on theextcniion of our i ; on the flourishing com i »n the igion, literature and vie ful knowledge; and on the general pros perity of our fellow-citizens, we cannot but acknowledge •with bumble gratitude, the benign difpeniatipfis of divine pro vidence in gr.'.i: free reprefenta tiye government, which may be confi dered as the principal fottrce of the ciif tinguifhed blcilings we enjoy. Let it then be our care, as it is our duty, to cberifh the principles! of a government which has produced id much good. Let u.i guard ag-iiult everI.' encroachment or deviation, and unit" in every effort to render it perpetual. :. CLINTON* Albany, January 26, 130.2.
