Sir, the siaie of things is now changed. We have 00 Washington. We cannot, if we look throughout the w holts co.imry, find in retirement a man on whose head si nation's blessings have, with entire una nimity. been showered as on him. We catuoiliM.k abroad and And some one man whoce name i gratefully cherihed as ha ving been onct. the saviour of his rnunlry, and ti whom all look agin to discharge this benevidcnt oflice of patriotism a se co:iJ time for ilirm. U e h ive eminent and g'tod men, we have them in pnllc and in private life; we l ave them in the inihtay and in the civil service of ihe country ; we have them belonging to all parties into which the people are di itlej ; but, sir, among them all. there .a not one whose name can, without profanation, be ep.tken in comparison with the name of Washington Sir, the creation of that of fice in 1 70S was a personal tribute of grate- fid std uirjli n and respect on the part of this country to Washington. It was foun ded ii motives pervonal to him. N man supposed at that day, as some seem to suppose al this, that Washington, at the bead of the armies of this country, with the title of m;.jor general, could not have b en as efficient as if he bore a hundred lilies as if he wore all the tides which European device could heap upon him. The idea lnl Washington could deii-e any advantage, any menial force, any p -wer of concentration, any genius, anv greater skill in ihe management of the f- f lira of his counirv : or that it w ould add anv thing 10 the indomitable rpirit bv wliirh he was enabled, in success or in adverity, 10 be always the same ; that he taulj derive in any degree all or any of these attributes from the circumstance of bearing a higher title, entered not, 1 am persuaded, into the imagination of any human being, ll was known lhat Wash ington, with the title nf major gem-rat, cvild have dischaiged all the duties that were placed in his hands ay, with an inferior title : became the power to dis charge them depended on his personal qualities, and the force placed at his com mand. The title in that case was ,.-t. u was aeseiveu oy nun, but by no other man. Am ni.-iig iii .aiME mat mis i appoinlment sprung from motives person ul to Washington ? Why. look at the rubtequeni transactions of thin govern ment. Nearly half a century has passed away since thii office of lieutenant gene ral exiMed among us." We have during lhat p.-rioil been engaged ill war with the then inot powerful nation of Europe semap 1 might say, without exaggera tion, of . ihe world. At one. time, il" my -ii ory serves me. we had in the field less than eight major general per haps I am tn'maken, however; if o, some oniorcan sei me rigni yet i believe contemptible, as uniting ii-wiih a bigb uo one ewr twilight of appointing aomt sounding, promising title.

The honorable Senator haa mentioned aa one of the reasons why this measure ahould be adopted, that ihe number of lioops aa in another connexion I have already ob servedthat the number in our service in the late war with bngland, waa greater than the number now in service ; but, e ven if sufficient reason existed why that number of troops should require a com mander of the rank now proposed, ao far as that reason is ronceined, ll existed in a much highei degree at that day. And, sir, if there were any magic in the name of lieutenant general, in virtue of which the spirits of our own tioops would be in vigorated and those of our enemy be di minished ; if we required such magical as sistance at all, was it not required during the dark peiiod of the commencement of the war with ureal Urtiain " How then did it hapiienlhal this remedy for evil was not thought of by Madison, and by the parties ol that day : How did it happen that when the danger was greater, and when patriotism was as great as it is now. if there be virtue 111 the remedy now pro posed, that it was not thought of then ? Hut the gentleman speaks of this, measure being remured 111 accordance with the re gular military organization of an nrmv; mai me proper command 01 a major gen eral was Irom 3.500 to 4,000 men : and that something was due to the arrange ments w hu h had formerly prevailed among otticr nations thai something was due to the customs of the w orld. But. sir. these arguments, if they prove any thing, if we are to have an eve to conforming our limitary arrangements In the estib j lishcd customs of foreign Powers, we must have several lieutenant generals; and when we have several, permit me to nay, there will exist precisely the same necessity for inventing and establishing some other su perior in rank in our service, under w hom the lieutenant general may render efficient service to the country. For I believe it will be found, w hen you have three or four officer, of that grade, that the eclat at tending that rank will pass away, another and higher grade will be looked for as ea gerly as the first. But another reason whv such an officer is required, accoiding to ilia honorable ucn.iur. on arcoom oi ina inn ua on o: our troop.; hence ilia necessity nf having soma eye ol sufficient elevation to com mand the whole, Sir, so far aa this is concerned, ihe lteuien.nl general will, by lorce ol his mere title, possess no greaier power of vision, ni greater skill or vigor of execution, than he would possess un der another nils. Th.l must depend oo his personal quliiis aiK power com Ofiitcd io him. If ha have ih. qualities, lha idle ia ussiest and. if bahae them not, ihe Ml. will be worse than useless; for it will oily make imbecility snd defeat more ' . frrrsrJay tie latoraUa &cati.
