M. lb Co THE VIRGINIA*. LYNCHBURG. MARCH 12, |h2,, THE INAUGURAL SPEECH We promised, inour last, to advert more f, ticularly to the inaugural Speech ol Gen. Jutk •on than we had then time to do ; and weprn ceed to comply with that promise, h, ,ht first place, we are struck with its ambiguity, f„ different, in that respect, from those ol lm decessois, and so incompatible with the trank ness and fearlessness ol chaiacler which hat heen uniformly ascribed to him. and, teems to US, likewise, that the necessity fore ciplicit avowal ol the President's opinions on 'he great subjects of domestic policy whir have heen so freely and warmly discussed du ring the administration of Mr. Adwns.&t which will lose limiting ol their absorbing intere.i in the next four years, was more desirable nui, than at any former period. Anil yet, l,e U. managed very skilfully to throw around his rf. ulsentiments the same impenetrable veil by which they Were shrouded during the late con test, whetebv his li mits iu the Otulli brought tue Ami-tarifffeeling in that section ofcountry t bcarin Ins favor,while,tu the same time the North and H/tst were supporting him as Hie champion of the American sysem. It does not seem to ns even to be gooff policy in the President to pursue this indecisive course—lor, by so iloine he cteales hopes which subsequent cvi ,ts ^,|[ compel him iw destiny. lie must he aware mat he will be called on, in Ins otiicml capau ty to disclose his real sentiment*, both a, to th . policy of the Tnuffaml as to the extent of tie Constitutional powei# of the general govern raenl with regard to that and other great ones tiuiis. By concealing his opinions now, is it not certain that he will be claimed by both pai tics? And if this lie the case, will not iliai party which he may disappoint, be inveterate in its hostility ami unsparing in ds denuiiciu lions in proportion to the gruames* i l'ihe cepiiun which it will suppose to have been d> libeiately practised upon it ? This, we think, will oe the inevitable tendency of the course which the President ha- thought (it to pursue We expect it w ill he said that we have been in. lliiencijil in tue luiiuution of our opinion by me same feelings of hostility to Gen. Jackson which induced u» to oppose hi. elevation to the Presidency. But, if wo know ourselves, such is not the fact. Llrcied by a laurt* maiorirvnf the people, we hope, he ran) r nlize (he toralest j cxpectaltotis of his friends and cisappoinui iluj j worst anticipations of his opponents, it Is one j ,htng lo oppose a mnti’s elee'ion lo an office u, wliiell he aspires, anil it is another to throw oh Stacies in (he way of the proper discharge of his duties after he shall have ticeu elected.— VVc were loo often compelled, during the adm nis'ralion of Mr Adams, lo denounce the ha,e ness of (he latter course in many of his oppi nents, to pursue a similar one towards his stir cessnr. Our opinion has hcen formed in tie absence of every thing like prejudice—and ue speak the delihenue conviction of anr judgment when we say lhal the equivne.nl character of the Speech is discreditable to the author, and totally contradictory lo the whole character of the man. The object and design of no loan (jurat Speech, we presume is to furnish the public with an outline of the principles by which an Hdiniiiislialionjnst coming into power, vsi'l he guided. Dues the speech of President lack sun do this ? He are certainly as much in the dark as it no Speech had been delivered, and if there beany individual among his trient's or foes whose keener perception lias enabled hint to discover whether or not lie believes in the cun stitiuio'ial powet of the general government lo impose duties on foreign imposts with express reference to the protection t»f American maun factuics ; or whethet, if tin? gosernmenment do possess this power, it is expedient to exci cise it ; or whether the constitution grants i; power to construct roads and canals in (he se erul States ;—we say, if any person has been enabled to discover which side of these ques. 'bins, the President may he expected lo es pouse, we shall he deeply indebted to him fc sucti information us will relieve us from tloul' II, however, the Speech he objectionable let its ambiguity, it is much morcsufnr the spirit of hostility displayed towards the late admin:, tratinn in pie subjoined extract : file recent demonstration of public sen: nieut inscribes, on the list ot executive dutie: in characters too legible to tie overlooked, the. task of rejurtii; which will require particularly the collection of those abuses that have brought the patronage of the Federal Government inti conflict with the freedom of election, ami tin counteraction of those causes which have d> turbed the rightful course of appointment. nnJ have placed, or continued in power, unfailhli or incompetent hands." II President Jackson verily believes (bat tber arr any abuses to 44 rcjorm" in the adininistr . tion of the government, we hope he will go : work zealoasly in effecting the iieeessir. changes. No one will be more teadily disp> ed than ourselves to give him due credit fcx every abuse which he may lop off, or tor tvty valuable rule which he may engraft into <u:» system. He should beware, however, in hi Eeal on this head, that he dopa not interfere with settled arrangements, the value of which, though cJ-arly perceptible to those acquainted with the operations of the intricate machine * government, may appear to a superflc al o' server to be wholly unnecessary—But, we ob ject to this passage cl the Speech for another reason. 1* orgettiug the dignity of his static;* and the moral sublimity of the occasion, the President condescended to adopt the miserable party slang of the day, and to charge the late administration with having 44 brought the pat ronuge of the firdtraI government into conflict with the freedom of elections”—w ith having drlturbed the^rightful course of appointment!
