Jiut Ctfsur —Jlut millus. In the message, tile President tfuggesTs three ge neral sources from which he attempts to derive po.wers lo the General Government. If these be legitimate sources for the derivation of powers, it is admitted, that he may, through either of them, derive unlimited powers for the practical govern ment. The President selects the power of ma king internal improvements a* the first, and favo rite example of a derivation of power from each spurte; and makes it the master powtr, which will involve in its exercise all subordinations. He car ries this preference so fur, as to cotnpreirciid with jn this master power, the circumnavigation of flic globe; and building light houses of the skies. The nrst source for the derivation of power, according to tire writer’s understanding of it, is the social •compact, or “ the great object of the Institution of civii government” supported by tire divine assigna tion of duties to social man. The second —From an association of the genetal governments, with the Other governments of the world, and the relative duties growing out of that association. Tire third— Prom constructive powers (o he exercised over the Constitution of the U. S. The claim of pow er under the first sburte of its derivatron, is set t^rtb in the message in the following words:— “ Upon the first occasion of addressing the Le gislature of tlie Union, with which 1 have been honored, in presenting to their view, the execu tion, so far as it has been effected, of the measures sanctioned by them, for piomoting the internal improvement of our country, I cannot close the communication without recommending to their calm and persevering consideration, the general principle in a more enlarged extent. The great olject of the institution of civil government, is tlie improvement of the condition of those who are par ties to the social compact. And no government in whatever form constituted, e*:i accomplish the lawful ends of its institution, but m jiroportion ars it improves the condition of those over whom it is establishad. Jloads anti Cana!*, by multiplying •and facilitating the communications and intercoms* between distant regions, anti nruhftutTc. of men, arc amongst tlie most important means of improve ntei.t. But moral, political, intellectual improve ment, aic duties assigned, by the author of out existence to social, no less than to individual man. For tiie fulfilment of those duiies, governments -are inve-ted with power; and to the attainment of «ue end, the progressive improvement of the •cu shion of the governed, the exercise of delegated power, is n duty as sacred and indispensable, a* •he usurpation of power not granted is criminal and odious. Among the first, perhaps the very first instrument for the improvement of the con dition of men, is knowledge: and lo the acquisi tion of much of the knowledge adapted to the wants, the comforts, and enjoyments, of human life, public institutions and seminaries of lesrn :ug are essential.It is easy to see that this quotation contains a re-areertion of the general prin ciple* advanced in tlie Ohio letter; and recommends Iffl alnrttir'.n *• in *» morn nr.L.. ...I -__ 99 r. would seem, that the President is resolved to die bj his first lippressions, as declared m that letter, or carry Its principles into effect, ” ia a more en larged ejKeiifj” und for that purpose, employs the metaphysical abstractions, mo!rt singular ly conceived and arranged. Before the writer undertakes the task of decy pheriog the contents of the foregoing quotation, he begs the reader to examine them well himself; and to ascertain the true meaning and objects. .Let him ask himself, whence tire derivation of power claimed under this quotation? IJy whom are the duties of moral, political, and intellectual improvement assigned to social man? By whom -*/« governments invested with power, for the ful filment of those duties? By wltorn Is tire power delegated; the exercise of which, is a sacred and mdi^ensable duty? What limitations are there upon such delegated power? Are there *ny hmi fiilious upon nucli dtltnitcd v»<>w*« ? it ^bnt cio t\»«7 c«n*^wt > it thfret?e no limitations upon ’.he deJegcted power, how can fhere Ire «iy usur pation o[ power not granted, which would be criminal and odious? It there any appeal to the <. onslilution of the U. S. for the purpose of ascer taining and adjusting all these great fundamental points? Tho writer will readily adrait, that iftlre President ran rightfully avail himeelf of” the great ebicci of tire institution of civil government,” and agnation of governmental duties by lire author <TJ txir existence, for the derivation of any power whatever to the general government ; that the power ttins derived, is unlimited, because it iw pa /Amount, and undefined; and of course, must be Unlimited. But it is denied, that the general go vernment, «s constituted, has any thing to do with *' the great object of the institution of civil go vernment,” in regard to the improvements of The comfitiOn of those who are parties to the social compact; that being a sufyecl of original para mount power, when the general government is a secondary subordinate power, depending for it* owa organization, and for all its legitimate pow ers upon that original paramount power. That Original paramount power exists in the will of ibe people, or of the parties to the social federal com* pact, and is ordained, and proclaimed in their con stitution: tho only gra/it of power to the general government. The general government it-elf, be ing a secondary derivative powrer, cannot claim any original power whatever; but moat look for nil its own legitimate powers, to the terms of the grant, in which they gre ordained and declared, to wit—to the Conatitutlon of the U. 8. When the 'people of tit* L' j:i their previous^ * :haracter», undertook to form their cous'tHutiori,' : hey undertook to judge for themselves, of the best ueaus of improving the condition of the associa ed, and their decision is ordained in the Constitu ion of the U. S. When the President, iu behalf of he general government, undertakes to derive pow :rs from the social compact, or from •• the great >bject of the institution of civil governments,” he ntrudes himself into the place of the people, in heir sovereign characters, and usurps their pow er of judging for themselves, as to the means of bettering their condition; and makes a consti tution for them, according to his will,instead of car rying into effect a constitution made according to theirs, and, of course, usurps their sovereign will. In forming the Constitution of the U. S , tj*e peo ple exercised that act of sovereignty for themselves. They judged of the best means of bettering their own condition, and those means consisted in having one general, and a uctnber of local governments, amongst which, all their political powers were dis tributed. They determined amongst other things, that the general government should be limited in its powent to general /objects specifically defined; arid that the power to make internal improvements, being local In its character, should remain with the •late governments,, and should not be granted to the general government. But, says the President, “ And no government, in whatever form constitu ted, can accomplish the lawful ends of its institu tion, but in proportion, as it improves the condi tion of those, over whom it is established.” This assertion contains another very intelligible hint, in relation to the President’s views, as to the im materiality of tin: forms, in which governments shall be constituted, provided they be 80 constitut ed as to answer all the ends of their institutions: and this can only be done, in proportion, as they shall be empowered to improve the condition of those over whom they arc established, clearly inferring, 'hat the means for improving the condi tion of the people, should be left unlimited, other wise the practical government might be palsied in the choice of means, and consequently doomed to a perpetual inferiority to governments which are placed above the will of their constituents, and ol course, would not be palsied by their will, in the choice of the means to better the condition of those over whom they arc established. But, admit the | President’s abstract position to be true, in what \»*ay will he make the application of it to the ge neral government, so as to derive any power from it whatever ? If it be true that all the powers of the practical government are derived from the con stitution of tl*o U. S., how can he add to those powers, by kthe consideration that “ no govern ment, in whatever form constituted, can accom plish the lawful ends of its institution, hut in pro portion as it improves the condition of those over whom it is established.” This consideration may go, a* it does go, to impugn the wisdom cf the constitution in having fixed limits to the powers of the practical government; but government holding all its powers under that institution,cannot rightfully pi*ceit«clf above that constitution, and invest itself with powers beyond Hie limits of that constitution, | merely because the President thinks those limits ; are unwise, and that it would have been better to have left the practical government unlimited in the choice of means to improve the condition of the people. The President may, and doubtless does, most heartily regret, that these restraints are im posed upon the practical government, but he can not help it. He has no remedy, so long ns the constitution imposes the law upon the practical government. The President proceeds—“ Roads and canals, by multiplying and facilitating the com munications and intercourse between distant re gions and multitudes of men are amongst the most important means of improvement.” What then? Does it therefore follow that the power to make them,could not be as well, nay, betier executed by the state governments, than the gen. government: Rat whether or not, h being the will of the people, that the power sfiould remain with the states, to be executed by the state governments, there is no pretext for the usurpation of the power by the |igeneral government. In the next sentence, the ['President points to a course for the derivation of this power, with others still more indefinite, pa Iramouut to both the will of the people and the constitution. “ But moral, political, intellec tual improvements are duties assigned by the ait | thor erf our existence to social, no less than to individual man ” By whom assigned to social man, or in the application of the abstract expres sion, “ social man,” to the general government? Assigned by the author of our existence. Here, then, is a derivation of power from divine right. I There can be no other meaning put upon the ! w.rrb—” Assigned by the author ot our exist | ence to social man.” The author of our exisl [ ence is no other than the divinity. Social man, nc i oilier, than man in his governmental, as contrasted with his mrturol condition. Hence, the President has mounted up to the divinity, in aid of his claim to sovereign power, as being paramount to the di vinity, in aid of his claims to sovereign power, as being pat amount to the Constitution itself. This conclusion is put beyond question in the following sentence: “ For the fulfilment of these duties, i governments are invented with powers, and 10 the attainment erf the end, the progressive improvement | of tlie condition of the governed, the exercise of : delegated power is a duty as sacred and indispen ! "able, m the usurpation of power not granted, is [ criminal and odious.”; What a sentence i! Mow I strangely organized!! How can it be decyphereu? Why alt this abstraction and obscurity in [a ense, where plainness and simplicity alone ought‘to have Ix-en consulted ? Was the President desirous ol being understood? Did he not possess capacity to make himself understood, if he desired it? “For the fulfilment of these er.d* (making roads and oanals, moral, political and intellectual improve By whom arc governments invested with power? Governments, mean all governments. The gene ral government, is not made an exception, cer tainly the answ er is, by the author of our exist ence—moral, politico 1 and intellectual improve* | uients, are duties assigned by the author of our exist* j ence to social man in the sentence above;and in this, ; "for the fulfilment of these duties, (the same duties) | governments are invested with power,” of course, by the same authority: by divine authority —by the author of our existence, equally applicable to the governments of the U. 8 whh all other govern ments; "and to the attainment of the end—the l>rogrev<ive improvement of the condition of the governed, the exerci-e of delegated power is a duty sacred and iiMlispenwAMn.’’ ** TV»» «*•*•«•'*• **f <Scir delegated by whom? certainly by | (he author of our exist once, certainly by the di I vinity. Where are the limitations, he has impos ed upon his delegated power? If there he any, where are they defined? There are none. It the author of our existence should have delegated any power whatever, to the practical government, that power is delegated without any limitation rviat cver; aad according to tl>« meaning of the Presi dent, It it* this delegated power the exercise of which is sacred and indispensable. Here then, as the writer thinks, is the* old doctnne of tl*c jure di viuo, revived by the President of the U. S., and practically applied to the powers of tlw general government, in common with all others. It is Ifere peremptorily denied, that any duties whatever, ere assigned by the author of our ex istence to “ social man,” to be performed in his n.icial or official character. All God’s gift* to man are La his natural, not in his social, eor corpo rate character; and all dutiea assigned him by his God, are to be executed ir the same character. God made man in his natural character, and left him to make his social rompacta at his own plea sure. This right is the true foundation of the great principle asserted in all cur fundamental laws? That the People are the trueaource of all political’ power. Now if the author of our existence, as lign* to social man, moral, political and intellect ual improvements, as dti'iss to he performed inf his social or official character, and the performance of which in that character, is made sacred and in dispensable, then the basis of all American con stitutions lias been mistaken, and the people can j no longer be deemed ihe true source of all political I power. Perfuse, if intact, the author of our ex - ! tlvci ziigfet «i» politico! power upon xouei j nan, hit power being paramount the power ef the people, of course, their power cannot be the origi nal source of all political power, and governments consequently must be of divine origin, if the Pre sident's hypothesis be true. It is denied that God assigns any duties to man in bis social character, to be executed by him in his official character; they being assigned by his fellow man; because all the relations of man to his God arc in his individual, not in lit* corporate chaiacter; and if the Presi dent ever finds his way to heaven, he will go there as John Quincy Adams, not as President of the U. S. God is no respecter of persons, and the King and the beggar stand in like respect before him. It is believed lhat the Kings of this world will make a very different figure in the next, com pared with the little glittering ephemeial dash they make amongst their fellow beings here be.ow. It is true, that man, intrusted by his fellow man, with the discharge of social duties, is responsible to Ins God for the due performance of them; but these duties are in fact imposed upon him by his fellow man, and not by his God, and his responsi bility to his God is in his individual,not his corporate* character. God makes man.manmnkesgovernments. God never nude a corporation— he permits man to make them— and poor, weak, silly man indulges his little cunning in making them, to the destruc tion of his own natural inestimable rights and liber ties. Corporations, especially paper corporations, are at this day the great governmental instruments for enslaving mankind. Could it have been ex pected that in the first half century alter our fa thers had discovered and proclaimed the great political truth— that the rights of man were the true source of all political power, it would have become necessary to defend that principle againsi the doctrine of the “ jure divino,” declared by the President of the U. S. in his message to Congress; But, fellow citizens! marvel not at these things for the writer challenges the President, and hii whole cabinet, to find more despotic doctrines it the writings of the most intrepid defenders of tin divine right of Kings, than arc contained in hi message, in the speech of his first, and the repor of his second secretary. It is presumed, that thes doctrines have become necessary, as they certain!; are necessary, to sustain the splendid consolidate government of which, the cabinet seems to bav< become enamoured, and infinitely more to be re gretted, of which the people seem also to have be coine enambutej. “ ’Tis strange'.!! ’Tis passinj strange”!!! that any people, onimpelled by an; excitement whatever, either by fear or by force, ii a state of perfect volition, should deliberate!; choose to give up their inestimable rights and liber ties, their solid happiness, in exchange for tli empty vanities of sound, and the glittering gew gaws of splendour!!! The President admits, tha the usurpation of powers not granted, is crimina and odious. What powers are these? If all morn! political and intellectual power, be delegated 1< “ social man,” by the author of our existence, i seems to the writer to include all power. Thcr is none lett ungraiuea; ot course, it would lie im possible to commit the act of usurpation, which is denounced by the President, as criminal and odious, and in that way, the President may avail himself of this decoy, and escape from his own denuncia tion. But if the constitution be considered as the only charier of the powers of the general govern ment, then the usurpation of powers beyond (he grant# of that charter will, in the opinion of the writer, justly subject the President to the odium and criminality which, in that event, he denounces against himself. It is true the President in another part of hi# message, speaks of the venerated con stitution: but whenever the President -peaks of the venerated constitution, he reminds the writer of a dashing,headstrong prodigal who professes most highly to respect, and most dearly to love his venerated grandmother, but prides himself upon disregarding all herjwise,admonishing precepts, and adopting a maxim of his own, for his own rule and conduct, ‘‘Neck, or nothing,” which may be considered a free Knglish version, of the Presi dent’# imputed motto— Ant Caesar, out nultus.
