its general effects on tho-o who have used the water, cither as j cs

we might, particular and most authentic instances of its spi-ci- J en
: effects in the cure of obstinate cases of Dyspepsia and functional '
rangementi of the liver. To ibis may be added a recent and j fu
ost striking cure of confirmed dropsy. The spring is in that re- I
oil univeisally acknowledged to be among the healthiest in the 1 tli
ate ; and its particular locality, no less healthy than the best i ex
utc of that region, uffords one* very decided advantage to the in- j d>

the expenses of the. Gorernrr.rnt
Mr t'htykiH: I rise. St, to ask the indulgence of
tin* House, while I thai! undertake to assign the reason*
which induce me to give the bill now under considers,
tinn inv support; and. in <1 >ing even this. I ant departing
from a rule w hich. at a verv early period of this proceeding.
I have laid down f*>r the government of my own
conduct I had believed. Sir. that the best service it
would be in my power to render my country, on tbi? occasion,
was to consume as III I te time as possible, in order
to enable as to act promptly and speedily npon the
bill lietoie lis Nor should I be disposed now. I?f a moment,
to depart from my origins! determination. but rather
have remained a s*!er>t spectator of the scene that
has been acting around me, had it not been for the course
the debate lis* taken, and wliielt seems to render it necessary,
on the part of iho.se at least who are members
ct the committer from which this bill was reported, lhat
the grounds of their action should be fairly and frankly
presented to the House, at,d w> the country, in order that
ail n?3v have a ^uded to them an opportunity of iudeing
of its merits
Sir. 1 shoo'd feel that t was recreant fn the tTB?t confided
tn me, and unworthy of the piece I hold here, if I
could sit tacitly by. and tamely submit, without explanation
or resistance, to what I have heard in the course of
the debate Sir. what have we witnessed? An honorable
member from Tennessee. (Mr Hell.) has made a laLured
argument to prove that th? bill is calculated to mislead
and deceive the public mind: that hi effect it is to
operate as a deception and fraud upon the public Sir,
when tbi? extraordinary declaration was made by that
member, I sat in anxious expectation to hear so grave a
charge eu'tained by as grave reasoning, based upon
proof, which would be c'ear. strong, iiresistible, incontrovertible.
But in w hat did Ins proof consist ? Not in
fact* winch applied to the tail its-it. wiucti i* identical
in principle wiiti that passed at the Inn session of Conpress,
after the rimst minute investigation, mature retiection.
and full del ill ; but in his own naked declaralinn
that die title to the bill is deceptive ! sitr. as to the
title. 1 candidly confess that my attention lias never been
draw ii to it for a singie moment; indeed, J never sptm' a
thought upon it until I saw i! taken hold nl in tins
House, and relied upon by Inimitable gentlemen as a
ground ol attack upon those who have been instrumental
in reporting it;, and without pretending to know the
reasons w inch influenced the (ranter of the bill, and the
author of t's title, to adopt the phraseology w hich ha
has, 1 presume that he. lo king to what whs intended
by Congres* nt rts lost session, considered that it ?a? the
object ol the former bill to give t > the Government the
use of ten millions dollars ot Treasury notes, up to the
foil end and close ot the present year; and perceiving
that such was not the etfect of that law. but. on the con
trary. that we base now returned into the Treasury, and
cancelled, about si j millions of those notes, he * rv mturally
concluded that what was tiitendrd by Ibe bill of
the last session was riot in lact done; and hence liend>>t>led
the follow tup as its title: "An act to carry into effect
an act approved the Itiihday ol October, l;b7, to authorize
the issuing of Treasury notes
Mr Speaker, the members ol the committee know too
well the character of the Opposition to this II -use, to
have a Mi mpied so shallow an artifice, if. under any circumstance
?. they emtio he capable of resorting to artifice at
all; art Opposition w b-ch tan find nothing that proceeds
from this Administration or i's supporters to approve,
but every tiling to condemn They know that n<> such
thin and gossamer covering as 11 deceptive title to a bill,
could ever conceal the perpetration of a fraud upon the
country: and yet the argument is, to prove that an at
tempt is made to place this question before the country
in a point of view calculated to mislead and deceive the
public mind Sir. does not every man know (and none
letter than the hnnoj.iMe me tide-r from Tennesgeej th-it

up f"r consideration, is at all times under the control of
the House, to tie altered and amended at its will and

1 feel, however, that I am citrumscnhed. very much
so. in the remarks I have to submit to the consideration
ot the House; but J trust I shall not be found violating
your rules of order; intentionally I never shall I propose.
Sir. to discuss this question upon proofs, and not
upon mere assertion, or I ltd and einply declamation. It is
upon the proofs alone I shall rely, in the confident expectation
that I shall satisfy all. who may not have ne>-n
Convinced he lore, if there he su,-h here, that this Government
has the rn'-sl ample means to redeem all i's
obligations: and although they rnay nu' be all available
in the cuurse ol the present year, which I shall not in
si?t upon, vet thai :t has ample means to redeem all its
obligations, and that, too. before there can he any evil
upon it under the law now proposed to be passed. This
hiducr* nie to look back for a single moment to days
gone bv: f'<r it is sometime# useful lo refresh our memories
by recurring to the pa?t, even if it be not very
remote, and although it may be at Hie risk of involving
honorable gentleman in inconsistency.
It will be recollected. Sr.*. that at the called session of
Congress, in S- pteinbtr last, the finances of the Government
were scanned with the cln-est possible scrutiny ;
yes. Sir. by eyes that looked to it f-.r ihe express purp..?e
of proving the ability "f the Government, in a pecuniary
point of view, to carry out Ihe provisions of the d>p<>site
act of th'- i'tlth r'f June. 1 It cannot be so soon for
gotten, that it w as then maintained that the condition of
the Treasury was such as n"t only lo enable the Secietnry
to meet the current demands upon it, and to pay
over thp fourth instalment.but tfi.it there would then re.
main sonic millions n| ('"liars ol surplus beyond the legitimate
wants of the Government These were the
views ihcn entertained, and acted upon, by those w ho
now onpnse the passage of this bill; and bv none were
they more strongly urged and sustained, on that occasion,
than bv the honorable member from Tennessee,
[Mr Bell ] who oet-a before me; hut who now maintains,
while the same slate of things exists, the very reverse
of the proposition which he then labored to establish nnd
In nrnrp
A strange altprat'on of opinion thi*. Mr. Speaker, in
the space of 3 few 9lmrt months 1 Then the gentleman
could demonstrate, to Inn own satisfaction, at least, that
there were mill'ons upon millions in the Treasury nv-r
and above the nrnp millions for the Slates ?over arid above
all th" nece-sary expenses of the Government?to meet
its legitimate wants, and over and above our extraordinary
expenses on account of Indian hostilities; but now,
alas! the scene h <s changed, and the same gentleman
has marie a labored argument tu prove that tne/e is nothing,
no. not b solitary dollar, not even in expectancy,
in the Treasury, to meet the legitimate wants of the
Government, but that there will be at the end of this
rear an actual deficiency of about eleven millions of dollars
" T'rnjiorit rnvtaxtur, rt rtns mutomtir in illtJ." "The
times have changed, and ivp change with them " [Mr.
Hell, in an under tone. "J have n>?t changed."] 'J'he
gen'lpman informs me that he has not changed. I can
only eay. Sir, that his ground is changed, his argument
is changed, and his results are changed, and that to the
tune of some twentv or more millions of dollars. This
may be no change. The honorable gentleman may not
regard it as one in these ever changing and changeable
times, and perhaps, therefore, I ought i?ot to have adverted
to it Hut the majority of the two Houses of Congress,
entertaining a widely different opinion from the
one expressed bv the g<-nt!eoi?o at that time uyiii this
subject, deemed it expedient to pass an act withholding
from the States the fourtti instalment of depositee; and satisfied.
ton, that, even with that aid. the available means
of the Government would he insufficient to meet the or
dinarv demands upon it. they furthermoreauthorized an
issue of ten millions of Treasury no'es, not, be it remembered,
because the Government did not possess
abundant m?ans to meet all the demands upon it, but because.
amidst that universal embarrassment which had
extended itself over the whole mercantile community,
embracing the banking institutions of the country, it was
scarcely to be hoped that the several amounts held on de
posile by the banks, and due Item merchants on duty
r horids, could be made avstlable to the Government without
greatly increasing those embairasementa which ail
were asxtous to mitigate Sir, at that time, all e jes were
VOLimB XXXV.?jNo. 26.
I turned to Congress, aniiuasly looking for, and awaiting
such relief as could, through the ordinar? channels of
legislation, be extended to what watt every where repres-nt
d to be a suffering community. An anxious desire
to fulfil this* expectation. > i u .iversnllv indulged in, led
to legislation both towards the hanks which bed been
selech-d as depositories of the public money, and the
merchants whose duly bonds had fallen due. and were
about to fall doe, which. u9 we all fcnow. placed for the
11'in* beyond the reach and control of the Government,
some eleven or twelve millions of dollars, due from tht>
deposite banhs and from merchant*. -r< will be recollected
that the provisions of one of these laws gave to the trieri
chants an extension of nine months to pay their bonds,
making the whole credit twelve and fitteen months, instead
of three and si" months, as provided by the then existing
laws;, and that the law in reference to the banks, gave to
th<M:i an extension on their liabilities to the Government
of one third until July next,oi s third unti Jaunary next,
and the balance until the 1st (' July. IW?.
And novr, with a view to further explanation, 1 am If u
naturally to inquire, what was the amount thus rendered
unavailable By this indulgenc" granted by the t?overnmeni
iiself, by ojrown legislation, legislation, designed
and intend'd for the s- le aid of its debtors, whether
individuals or corporate titr. ny referensc to th?
report of th>- tircrefary of the Treasury, it will be foundthat
there were?
In lit* depoaite banks, subject to drafl oil the
' 1st of January, $:"> 411J1C-J
Due on account of merchnnts' bonds, soy fj,01)0,000*
The report was, at first, necessarily imperfect,
from the returns nut h iving come in,
and the amount is there set down at only
ft4.000.00t). hot it is w riri' n-ceftained to be
largely over The returns, however.
are still incomplete, end the amount
rviM probably be found to approach nearer
to gy.uouuuo.
Heing. a< yon trill ?! ?. Sir. in round number*, eleven
millions and a half of the Gov rnment's resources. placed
beyond it? control, by its ? vvn legislation, for the rej
lief of its debtors; legislation, too, be it remembered,
fub>rqutnt In the passage of l':e Teens dry note bill, onthe
passage of which, it'indu gene was anticipated, it
was net expected to extend beyond the limitation* of that
act. vi?. the *.51st ol December next.
Hut we have been told, in (lie course of this debate,
that the issue of ten millions of Treasury notes was int?*nded
to supply die deficiency occasioned by the indulgence
extended to the merchants and the banks. Sir,
it w.is so intended: and. perm i ne to artti, that there existed
at that tune strong reasons to believe that that aid
extended to the Goverriinent by means of those Treasury "
nates, would hive been jus' as encctual to enable it to
meet all demands upon it, r.s if the amount due from
Hi" hanks arid merchants had been paid up to the list
dollar; but owing to circumstances over which this Goveinment
could exercise no control, ever which the legislation
of Coiigrt-fs could exercise none, this then reasonable
expectation has been disappointed And h"w,
permit me In re to inquire, has it been disappointed?
Why, we all know, that in consequence of the genera!
suspension of specie payments by the banks, in connection
with other can?tst, which (he limits of this debato
i d > not authorize me now t i vatnme, it had the effect
of depress.ng the Treasury rotes ftow an eighth to ?'
quarter, and halt of one per rentuni below the value of
g-dd aod silver; ami as nothing could be received in
piv merit of the public dues hut gold and silver, or Treasury
notes, the certain and inevitable con sentience was,
growing out of ihsl anxiety which every mm feela
to protect Irs own interest, and pay his debts in the
most convenient n? de, and with the smallest amount
of moriey: 1 siv, Sn, lite consequence was, thai, in the
cities o| .New York and l'hil-.d-lpiiia, points at which
we collect, I believe, lull one iialfof the public revenue,
tl cv souk below specie par. ni d were consequently paid
ml > the Treasury almost as fant as they were issued, redeeming,
lo be sure, the exact amount of Treasury note*
returned. but bringing into your Treasury nothing
that could be available to m'et liie'ordmary demands
upon the Government .Now. Sir, had these Treasury
notes, as was (hen expected, been spread over the whole
year, coming hack in something like equal proportions,the
means furnished by them, together with other resource*.
would have enabled the Government to lake up
much the larger purl of ti.em, or ?l any rete have !elc
j hut a very small amount indeed to he redeemed si the
time when the provisions of the law would have expired.
I say, Sir. this would have be-n the result, the imvita

the amount were redefined in the first four months of
the year; because, as they came btck and were cancelled,
the amount so returned and cancelled was equivalent.
jirntanto, to applying thus much of the resources
of the Government to their redemption
Now what does this bill proposer We have heard it
reiterated by the honorable m> mber from Massachusetts,
[\!r Ad.u: s ] lliat we have I oriowed ten millions last
year, and ili.it we now sr. k tn borrow another ten millions
by this bill: Yes, Uvr, it has been sent forth to the
world, that we are t??r botrowidg twenty millions; when
there is not a single paragraph or line of the bill, in virtue
of which th?re ever could be more than ten millicns
outstanding at any one time. If you choose to cull it'
borrowing, it was originally but ten millions, but as
a'out sev--n millions (including seven hundred-thousand
() Uars of them, returned and cancelled during the ia?t
var) have been redeemed, it is. so far as the former act
wj-i concerned, cud by the pr? - nt circumstance*, growing
out of its operation, a debt of three millions only ;
that being the amount now outstanding. And what do
we now proposer Not to issue a new batch of Treasury
notes ; but t? pass a bill by which you will put it in thepower
of the (Jovt rntnent again to issue the same amount'
which -as authorised by the act r?l the IvJih of October,

Mr Speaker, I have said, that the mean* of the Government
are ample la meet t-.l! its liabilities', and how
doe# it appear? 1 speak now from that condemned, that
much ahii'cd cnniinnnicatioii of the President of the
United States, sent to us on Friday last, cons'sling wf
some filieen or twenty lines W ha! are we therein told,
Sir; That there are m dcp-*ite with the States ?2.",l)i
ii 000. and more than $)|.">.00').000due from individuals
and banks; and be might have added, that, at the close
of tile present year, the accruing revenue from customs
and the sale of public lands, would amount to 000,*
Itii(J bes'd-'S. making an aggregate of some igfoc.OOO.OOO.
Sir, I feel that I should be careful, when I rely upon this
communication of the President, after the rematks thai
have fallen from the g>-ntien jo from Tennessee, [Mr.
| Hell ] I know that 1 should rely with great caution upon
any statement which the President ol the U. S. may
i d>-ein it proper to make to Congress; for what have we
heard from that honorable gentleman' Why. he hat
said, in round and unmeasured terms, that this was gross
and unwarrantable dictation to Congress on the part of
the President. It would seem, then, that it is gross antiunwarrantable
dictation for him to undertake to make
to us a communication of the 'act that the Treasury is
upon the verge of becoming unable to meet its liabilities.
and in thai communication to recommend what he
deemed expedient f"r the best interests of ttie country,
dir. n may not be unimportant for ua to beor in recoli
ieci ion the fundamental la w of our land It may not be
ami** to read the article in the Federal Constitution,
bearing upon this subject, for the purpmre of seeing tho
duties imposed hy that sacred instrument upon this high
officer. We shall there find his duly so clearly and
plainly marked out and defined, that he who runs may
j read.
Let us, then, go back to the Constitution, and see what
this act of hi* is that has drawn down upon him this
heavy and unmitigated denunciation. That instrument
i prescribes, in the second and third sectionsof the second
j article, that he may require the opinion, in wrtliug.of
the prwicipai officers in each of the Kseeative Departments
upon any subject relating to the duties of their respective
offices;" and. having done so. "he shall, from
lime to time, give to the Congress information of the
state of the Union, and reci inrnend to ihpir consii
deration such measures as he shall judge necessary
and expedient:" not that he tn/ty; but here is the more
j forcible and imperative word, thall, in the Constitution
j itself, which has been so strongly objected to, and so severely
criticised, by honorehls gentle men in another part
of this debate Yes. "lie sliall," from tune to time, give
to Congress information of the state of the Union, and
ncomm'.nti to llieir consideration such measures as he shall
jud^e necessary ami expedient ' The President hss no
choice about it. The people have placed him in the station
he occupies, sud here are the duties imposed upon
him by the Constitution. It "shall" be his duty, to dc
what." "Recommend to their [nur] consideration such
i measures as he shall judge necessarythe very thing. Sir,
the President has done, to the spirit and the letter. Andyet,
while, as we have seen, hi' i? pursuing but the strict
and straight line of hi* duty, and when he would hart?
been criminal if he had failed to do what he hss done,
he is to be denouncrd and held up to the world as a dic'
tator, and have the finger of scotn and conteiuyt yoiut* j
