be still more appreciated by his country

'-Mr. Schollfield and Gentlemen --In
comipliance with the request contained in
the memorial which you have now pre
seuteI to re, .-will avail tnyself of the
firyt opportunity of transmitting it to the
President or the United States. To avoid 1
misconception it is proper that I should
observe, that inasnuch. as the general go

of the separtte states, 1he s.ihject of the.
memorial does not fall-directly within the
President's province. nu that I :c huny

him. - I do it,-however. with cheeruiluess.
Out of respect to the muembers of -thio dii

Amerian stics to pay the interest of
their public debt. These Iielings, I am
sur. will be shared by the President.
"I concur with you in protesting against
the doctrine that abtaiewhich has pledged
its faith and resources, can release itself
from the obligation, however burdensome,
in) any way but that of honorablc pay
ment. Fatal delusions, in times of great
distress, occasionally come over the minds
of commutnitics as well as iulaividisd ;
but I r-juice in lhe t:cli'f that the unuteber

cijcumnstances. The State of Illinois uu
dertook .a fe w year' since the conlstructioe
of a ship canal of abouet 100 mili in
length, to unite the waters of Lake Michi
gan usith those of the lilinois river ; and
moro-recently projected end commenced
the esecutioni of 1300 miles of 'railway.
On these works mace ha. borrowedl and ex
pondled above 20,000.000 of pounds. T~ze
work -is incomplete arnd sonprodnetive.
The. populhation of t be Stato is that of a
secoted sized English county, short of half
a million. It is what in good times would
ho conisidered an.- emuined~rif proeJerous
population ; butil am inclined to think
that if rhe Englishincometuaof lastg'ear
were, by the -Legislature of -Illinois, laid
on that State, more than half -the popuala
tion possessing in the aggregate that pro
portion of taxable pronpsery, -would, in thme
present period of general distress. faell be
low .the point of esemption. and that of
the other half a small number only would
r ise above that point.- Andl yet the un
fdeveloped resources of llinois are almost
boundless. The State is larger than En
glaod and Wales. Bly the Mississippi it
is counectedl with the Gulf of Mexico, by
Lake Atichigan with the St. Lawrence;
and it has a most eztensive internal navi
gation by means of several noble rivers.
The clinatne of the State is mild ; it con
taius, I suppose, as large a body of land,
not merely cultivable, but highly fertile,
as can be found lying. together in the Uni
ied States; it abouide in various kinds of
mineral wealth , it is situated about in
the centre of a horizontal field of bitumi
