pcricnce has now provcd the micchids and
dangers of n paper currency, und il rcsts
with you to dctermino whethcr tho proper
remedy shall be npplicd.
Thu paper ayBtcm beingfuundcd on pub
lic coufidcnce, nnd hnving of ilsclf no in
trinsio value. it i3 liable to trreat and sud-
dcn lluciuations; thcrchy rendeiiiig prop
erty iimecure, nnd the wagcs of hibor un
Btettdv nnd unccrtain. The corporations
which crcate thc paper moncy cannot. nc
rclied upon to keep the circuluting mcdiuni
unilbrmin amount. In timca of prosperi
tv, whcn coiifidcncc h high, they nre lcmp-
tcu, uy tne prospcci oi gaui, or uy mc lii
lluence of thosc who hcpc to profit by it,
to extend their issues of papcr buyond thc
bounds of discretion and the rcasonable de
mands of busincs3. And whcn these issuce
have bcen punhcd on, from day to day, un
til public conlidcncc is at lcngth shaken,
tlien a rcaction take placc, andthcy inimc
diatelv withdraw the eredits they havegiv
en ; Buddenly curtail their is3iic3 ; and pro
duco an tinexpected and ruinous contrac-
tioti ol the cireuiatmg nicinum, wincn is
lelt by the wliole comniunity. The banks,
by this nieanit, 6ave themselves, ai.d (he
iniechievou3 coiwcqucnces of thclr impru
deuce or cupidity arc visiled upon the pub
lic. Nor does thc evil stop hcrc. Thesc
ebbs and ftows m thc currency, and thesc
indiscreot exU;iisuiiis of crcdit, naturally
ciigender a spiritof spectilation injurious lo
the habits and charactcr of thc pcople. We
have alrcady6een itsell'ects in the wild r.pir
it of Epeculation in thc public lands, aud
various kinds of slock, which, within thc
last ycar Or two, scized upon such a multi
tude of our citizcns, and threatened to per
vade all classes of society, nnd to withdraw
their attention Irom the sobcr pursuits of
honest muustry. it is noi uy cncouragmg
this sniril that wc shall hcst pre:erve pub'
lic virluc and promote thc trttc tntercsts of
our country. Juut 11 your currency contm
ues as exclusively naper as it now is, it will
foster this eager desiru t() amass wealth
without labor: it will multiply tlic numbcr
of dependants on bank accommodalions
and bank favors j the temptation to obiain
moncv at hiiv snoiidc.e will bccomc slron-
gcr and strongcr, und inevitably lead to
cnrruntion, which will find itsiwav into
your public cotmcils, aml dcslroy, at no dis-
tant day, tne purity ol your uovernment.
Some of the cvils which arisc from this sys
tem of papcr, prcss with pcculiar hardsiiip
upon ine ciass oi soeiuiy icasiaoic io near
it. A nortion ol this currency frcnuentlv
becomes deprccialed or worthlcss, and all
of it is casily counterfcitcd, in such a man-
ner as to rcquire pcculiar skill and much
cxperiencc to distinguish thu counleifeit
from thc genuine notc. Thcse frauds are
most generally perpetratcd in the smallcr
notes, which arc uscd in the daily transac
tions of ordinary busincss ; and the losses
occasioned by them arc couinionly thrown
upon the laboring classes of society, whosc
situation & pursuits putit out of their pow
cr to guard themselves from thcse imposi
tions, and whose daily wagcs are nccessary
for their subsistcnce. It is the duly o( ev
ery Government eo lo regulatc its currency
as'to protect this numerous class as far as
practicablc from thc impositions ol avarice
and fraud. It is morc especially thc duty
of thc United Stales, where tho Govern
ment is cmphatically thc Government ofthc
peoplc, and whcrc this respcctable portion
of our citizens arc so proadly distingushed
from the laboring classes ofall olher na
tions, by their independetit spirit, their love
of libcrty, their intelligencc, nnd their high
tonu of nioral charactcr. Their industry
in pcacc, is the sourcc of weallli ; and their
bravery, in war, has covcred us with glo
ry; and thc Government of the Unitcd
Statcs will but ill dischargc its dutics if it
leavcs thcm a prcy to such dishonest impo
silions. Yet it is cvident that their intcr
ests cannot be cfiectually protectcd unlcss
silvcr and go!d arc restored to circulation.
Thesc views alone,o( thcpapcr currency,
arc 8ufficicnt to call for iminediate rcform ;
but there is another consideration which
chould still inor? fltrtnjly nress itupon your
attention.
Kcccut event8 have provcd that thc pa
pcr money system of this country may bc
uscd as bu enginc to tmdcrminc your free
itislitutions; and that Ihose who desirc to
engross all power iu fli'c hands of the few,
and logoycm by corruption or force, arc
aware of its power, nnd"prcpnred to cmploy
it. Your bankii now furnisli your only cir
culaling mediuiu, and moncy is plenly or
scn.rce, according to ihe quantiiy of notes
issued by thcm. While llicy havc capital
not grcatly dispioportioneri to each othcr,
they are cornpetitors in husines3, & no one
of thcm can cxercise dominion ovcr thc rcsl;
and although, m thc prescnt fitatc of the
currency, thesc banls may and do opcratc
injuriously upon thu habits of busincss, the
pec.uiiiary concerjjis aud the tnural tone of
society ; yct, fioi their numbcr and dis
perseil situation, ih'ey cannot combine for
the purposcs of influcncc; 60 yhatcvcr may
bc thc uispoaitions of some of lliem, theiV
power of mischicl must necesKiirily bc con
lined to a narrow bpace, and Jclt only in
their immcdiatc tieighborhood.

Tho powcr which tho monied interest can excrcUe,

produccd by thc U. S. bank, allhough its suhero of

Il is ono oftho scrious cvils of our prescnt syslcm

that by no means a numerous one by its control
