To the House of Representativest
I return thu bill which originated in
the House of Representatives, entilleu
"An act to extend for a limited period
the present laws lor laying and collect
ing duties on imports," with the follow
ing objection?:
It suspends—in other words abrogates
for the time, the provision of the act of
1833,,conjmonly called the compromise
Act The fillly ground upon which this
departure from ihe solemn adjustment ol
of q.great and agitating question, seems
to-have been regarded as expedient is
the.alleged necessity ol establishing by
legislative enactment rules and regula
tions for assessing the duties to be levied
I mn certainly far from being disposed
to deny that additional legisiiott upou the
subject is very desirable. On thecuntra
ry, the necessity, as well as difficulty, of
establishing uniformity in the appraise
mcnts to be made in conformity with the
true intention- of that act, was brought
to the notice of Congress in my iMessage
to Congress at the upening of its present
session. But, however sensible 1 may
be of the embarrassments to which the
Executive, in the absence of all aid irotn
the superior wisdutn of the Legislature,* I
cerest ^-aco in us expre,
eeti able to oersuade myself that
the exigency of the occa&ion is so great
as to jusiity me in signing the but in
question, with my present views ol its
character and effects. The existing
laws, as 1 am advised, are sufficient to
authorize and enable the collecting ofli
cers, under the directions of the Secreta
ry of ihe Treasury, to levy tlie luties
imposed by the act of 1U.3.
ThUt act was passed under peculiar
circumstances to which it is not necessa
ry that 1 should do more than barely al
luue VV hiiiever ^it may be- theory,
is char,.cu-r, hove always regarded
W'ita-dipMi.attMU may, dictate,
fos it»o neeesjuiy uso«
the Govern­
ment, without iniringmg upon the*)bjeots
ol the act of 1833. I do not doubt that
the necessities of: the Government do re
quire an increase of the tarili 01 duties
above, 20 per ceiit, and I as lilt le doubt
but that above as well as below that rate
Congresss may so discriminate as to give
incidental protection to manulactu ring
.iudustry—t^us to make the burdens,
which it is compelled to impose upon the
people for", the jmrposes of Government,
productive of a.double beuefit.
This, most ol thc%reasonab!e opponents
of .protective duties seem willing to con
cede,.and if 1 may judge from the manifes
$!j$P?8 Puhlic opinion in all qwwrters,
all that the nianuf cturinir inter
"require. 1 am, happy i„ the
that this double Object can be
*a*|l^ dud effectually, accomittisli^l
tlwpresent juncture, without any de
pftrture from.the spirit and principle of
ihe statute in question. The manufac
turing claasei have now an opportunity,
which inay never occur ugaiu, of per ma*
Qently identifying their interests with
those of the whole country, and uiakin«
them in the highest sense of (lie term, a
national concern. The moment is. propit
ious to the interests ol the whole country
introduction of harmony among
all its" parts and all its several interests.
1 he same rate of-imports and
no more ui
b.ljty which the hearty acquiescence of
the whole, country, in a reasonable sys
tem, can hold out to him.
But of this universal acquiescence and
tho harmony and the confidence and the
many other benefits that will certainly re
sult from it, 1 regard t*e suspension of the
law for distributing the proceeds 'of the
public lands as an mdisp^able condition.
This measure is, in my judgment, called
for-by a large number, if nov a great nia
rity,of the people of the Unjted Sta'es,
the,state of the public crelit and fi
»he critical posture of our tor
on*'imports aftef the 30th Jutio acaont,' Pflif^^d the possibilit£^of the actual state of
ing" to
the home valuation and yet the
iiOimmUsthat "tfrbetofe -lh» first ol
ugwst, uiere w? no further legislation
upon the subject, the laws fiifTHNF^iiliynHP
and. collecting duties sball be the same
as though this uqt had not been pa«sed
In other words—that the aet of 1833,
imperfect" a% it is considered, phaU, in
that case,. corifioi4S to be, and to be exe
cuted as law under such rules and regu
lutions as previous statutes had prescrib
ed, or had enabled the Executive Depart
ment to prescribe for that purpose—leav
ing the supposed-cha^m in the revenue
laws just as it was before.
..4tf I ft

Wtjl bo liable, in the cttlbraouienl.^oj ,auly the provisoof the act itself.
as the rate ol duties shall, for any reason
whatever, bo raided ubove £0 per c3nt.-—
Nothing can be more clear, express, or
imperative than this language. It is in
vain to ullege that a deficit in the Treasu
ry was known to exist, and means taken
to supply it by loan when the act was
Ual at the same session during which
measures entertained no doubt bet that
the loon would be-eagerly taken by capi
taliis, and spcediiy reimbursed by a coun
try destined, as they hoped, soon to enjoy
an overflowing prosperity. The very
terms ol the loan, making.it redeemable
in three yaaxis,demonstrate this beyond at
cavil. VVbo at that time foresaw or ini-

so gVeat, are ya brft in the infancy of
their devolpm^nt, should 4e compelled to
higgle in the money- maclfaet for a paltry
sum, not equal to'one year's revenue on
tier economical: system! If t!.e Distribu
tion law is to 4e indefinitely suspended,
accordmg-not only to its.pwn terms but
by universal consent, in: case of war,
whereia'are the actual rxigencies of tlie
country or the moral obligation to provide
for them, less under prasotit circumstan
ces than they could be weri we actually
involved in war? it appears to me to be
the indispensable dttty of ail concerned in
tlie administration of pufblit. affairs, to see
that a state of things so humiiiaiiag and
so perilous should no: last a inoment long
er than is absolutely unavoidable Much
less excusaole should we be in parting
with any portipn of our available means,
at least until the demands oft ho Treasu
ry were supplied. besides tlie ar^»n
cy of suclt considsrauons, fact is un
dtutiable that Utatribution act 'could
any esseniial particular,
clrtuiged in
wuh as general acquiescence, it U be
liuved, 01 thift w'hoio cciuutry, as tljat
country hab ver' uitested lor any of
her wisely established institutions. It
has ensured io it the repose which always
flows from truly wise and moderate coun
cils—a repose the more striking because
of tlie iong und angry agi-tatious which
preceded it. This salutary law pro
claims in express terms the
which white it led to the abandonment ot
a scheme of direct, taxation, louuded on
a false basis and pushed to dangerous ex
cess,'justifies any enlargement of duties
that may be called for by the real exigen
cies of the pubac service. It provides
'Hhat duties shall be laid for the purpose
of .raising su revenues as may be
necessary to an economical administra
tion of the Government." It is, there
fore, in the power-of Congress to lay du
tjes as'Hlgfr
connection, thus meant -o be in
separable, is severed by. tha bill presented
to me This bill violates the principle of
the acts of 1833, and September, 15J41. by
suspending the first, and rendering lor a
time, the la?t inoperative Duties above
20 per cent, are proposed to belev ed, and
yet the proviso ia the Distribution act is
disregarded the proceeds of the sale are
to be distributed on the 1st of August, so
that while the duties proposed to be enact
ed exceed 20 per cent., no suspension of
the distribution to tho States is permitted to
take place. To abandon the principle for
a mouth, opens the way to its total aban
donment. llsuc

have limited the provision to that effect?
K-» it for the accommodation of the Trea
sury 1 see no reason to believe that the
Treasury will be ia better conditiou to
meet the payment on the 1st of August
than on the 1st ofJuly.
The biil assumes mat a distribution of
the proceeds of the public lauds is, by ex
isttng laws, to be made on the 1st day of
notwithstanding there has
1 Mifti n ^en an imposition of duties on imports
exceeding 20 per cent, up to that day, and
directs it to be made ou the first of Au
gust next. It seems to me very clear that
ihis construction is equally erroueous and
dangerous, as it would divert from the
Treasury a fund sacredly pledged for the
general purposes ol the Government, in
the event of a rate of duty above 20 per
cent, being found necessary for an econo
mical administration of the Government.
The bill under cousideiation is design
ed as only a temporary measure, and thus
a tcmpoiary uieusurj jiussn'.t merely (or
the convenience of Congress is tmde to
affect the vital principle ol an important
act. If the proviso of the act cif Sep ein
ber, 1841,can bo suspended for the whole
period 01 a temporary law, why not for
the whole period of a jiermanent law?
A doubt may bo «ell entertained, fact,
according to strict rules, whether the con
dition having been thus o'xpressly- sus
pended by this biii, gpd rendered inappli
cable to a case whero'it would- otherwise
have clearly applied, will not be consid
ered as ever alter satisfied and gone.—»
Without expressing iany decided opinion
on this point, 1 see enough iu tt to justify
me in adhering to the law as it stands in
preference to subjecting a conditiou so vi
tally atf'ectiug the peace of the country,
-MH.LsXsoleumly„.enqct^j at a monw
crisis, und su sted last ly ad he red to e«er
since, and so replete if adhered to with

In discharging ihe high duty tiius im
possed on me by the Constitution. I re
peat to the House my entire willingness ^OCOled
toco operate in all financial measures of a
constitutional character, which, it its wis
dom, it may judge necessary and proper,
to re-estabiish the credit of the Govern

"Our people all 'believethat the spiriV,
lives in a future state—that it has a great
distance to travel after death towards the
West—that it has to pass a dreadful deep
aud rapid stream, which is hemmed in on
all sides by hiulvand rugged hills—over
the stream from hill to hill, there is a
long and slippery pine log. with the bark
peeled off, over which the dead have to
pass to the delightful hunting grounds.
On the other side of the. stream, there
are six persons on the good huuting
grounds, with rocks in their hands,
which they threw^st. them all when they
are on the middle of ihe log. The good
walked safely to the hunting grounds,
where there is one continual day—where
the trees are always green—where the
sky has no clouds—where there are con
tinual fine and- cooling breezes—where
there is one contiaaai. scene of feasting,
dancing and rejoiceiog—where there is
no paiu or trouble, and the people never
grow old, but forever live and enjoy tlie
youthful pleasures. The wicked see the
stones coming, and try to dodge, by
which they tall from the log, and go
down thousands of feet to the water,
which is stinking with dead fish and ani
mals, where.they 4re carried around and
brought continually back to the same

all dead, and the waters are fu.'l of toads
