["•CONTINUED. J The situation of the mercantile clasaes, also, rendered the usual aids of the Bank more than evpr necessary to sustain them in their business. The:r bunds for previous importations were, at before stated, constantly becoming due, and hea vy cash duties were almost daily to be paid. I he demands of the public upon those engaged in commerce, were consequently unusually large, and they had a just claim to the most liberal in dulgence from the fiscal agent of the Govern ment, which had for so many years been reaping harvests of profits from the deposites of the pub lic money. But the Bank about this time chang ed its course. . , By the monthly statement of the Bank dated 2d August, 1833, it appears that its loans and domestic bills of exchange, purchased and on hand, amounted to g64, l60,o49 14 Bv the monthly statement of the 2d September, 1833, they ap pear to have been G2,653,ti59 59 Bv that of the 2d October, 1835, r.n noa ono o« tney wcic - Reduction in two months, 4,006,146 21 By (he same papers, it appears that the public deposited, in cluding those for the redemp tion of the public debt, the Treasurer’s, and those of the public officers, were, in August 7,599.931 47 in September 9.182,173 18 in October 9,868,435 58 Increase of the public deposiies in two months 2,268,504 11 Total amoun* collected from the community 6,334,650 32 Thus, upwards of six millions of dollars were withdrawn from the business of the country by the Bank of the United States, in the course of two months. This of itself must have produced a pressure on the money market, affecting all commert ial transactions. But the curtailment in the Bank accommodation of the community, was much larger. The policy adopted by the Bank of the United States compelled the State Banks to take the same course, tn self defence, and the Bank of the United States appears to have resorted to the expedient of dtawing from the State Banks the balances flue, in specie, and to have hoarded up the article in i*s own vaults. In August, 1883, that Bank had in specie 810.023,677 38 • In September 10.20< ,649 20 In October 10,663.441 51 Showing an increase of specie in two months of 639,764 13 This sum it is believed was chiefly drawn from the State Banks. Tn fortify themselves, those Banks were compelled to call on their debtors and curtail their accommodations; and so large a proportion of these calls aie always paid in their own notes that, to obtain 8100,000 in specie,' thev are probably obligad to call for four or five times that amount To replace the specie taken from them by the Bmk of the United States and to provide for their.own safety, the State Banks, therefore, must have curtailed from two to three millions of dollars. Oil the whole, it is a fair es timate. that the collections from the community, during those two months, without any correspond ing return, did not fall much short of nine mil lions of dollars. As might have been expected, complaints of a pressure upon the money market weie neaid from every quarter The balances due from the State Bank* had. during the same . tune, increased from 8368,969 98 to 2,288,573 19, and from the uncertain policy of the Bank, it wa* apprehended they might suddenly be called tor in specie The State Banks, so far from being able to relieve the community, found themselves under the necessity of providing for their own safety— A*very large proportion of the collections of the Bank in August and September, were in Phi ladelphia, rsew l ork amJ Boston. In \.jgu*t and September the curtailment* in Psiladrlphia. was 8195.548 69 loci ease ol public deposites 646.846 80 Actual collections by the Rank, 842,395 49 Increase of public deposites in New York 1,396,597 24 Deduct increase of loans 331,295 38 Actual collections by the Bank 1,065,501 86 Curtailment in Bos ton was 8717,264 45 Increase of public deposites 48.069 83 Actual collections by the Bank - 765,334 33 j ' i Total collections in the three cities 2,^3,031 68 . It will be perceived, that it »»» solely through ; the increase of the public deposites, that the ; Bank raised balances against the State Banks in 1 New York, and was placed in a situation to take from (hem, at its pleasure, large sums in specie. And when it is considered, that those curtail-1 meota and collections of the Bank of the United 1 State* necessarily compelled the State Banks to curtail also, we shall be at no loss to perceive the ; casse of the pressure, which eiisted in tha com mercial cities about the end of the month of Sep tember. It was impossible that the commercial community could have sustained itself much; longer, under such a police. In tbe two suc ceeding months tbe collections of tho Jkuk would probably have exceeded five millions more, and the State Banks would have been obliged to curtail in an equal sum. The reduction of Bank accommodations, to the amount of nineteen mil lions of dollars, in four months, must have almost; pat an end to trade; and before the first of Oc- , tuber, this pressure in the principal commercial | cities, had become so intense, that it could not have been endured much longer, without the most serious embarrassments. It was then daily ' increasing, and from the best information that j have been able to obtain. I am persuaded, ha if the public moneys received for revenusi had , continued to be deposited in the Bank of the U. States, for two months longer, and it had adhered to the oppressive system of policy which it pur sued during the two preceding months, a wide spread scene of bankruptcy and ruin must have followed. There was no alternative, for the Treai»urv Department, but to act at. once, or abandon” the object altogether. Duties of the highest character, would not permit the latter course, and I did not hesitate promptly to resort to the former. I have stated the condition of the mercantile classes at the time of the removal, to explain whv it was impossible to postpone it even for a short period Under other circumstances, I should have been disposed to direct the removal to take effect at a distant day, so as to give Congress an opportunity of prescribing, in the mean time, the places of deposite, and of regulating the securi ties proper to be taken. It is true, that the pow er given to the Secretary ol the treasury to re move the deposnes from the Bank ol the United States, necessarily carries with it the right to se lect the places where they shall afterwards be j made. The power of removal cannot be exerci sed. without placing them elsewhere: and the right to select is therefore contained in the right to remove It is also true, that in my judgment, as has been already stated, the public interest would have been advanced, if the change had ta ken place at an earlier period. Yet as a few months would in ordinary times have made no ve ry serious difference, and the removal had alrea riy been delayed until the meeting of Congress nnnrnachiiiv. I should have preferred execu (in<r the measure, in a manner ihat would have enabled the Legislature to act on the subject, in advance of the actual removal, if I had deemed it proper to do ao. But the conduct o! the Bank left me no choice, except between the immediate removal, and its final relinquishment. For il the measure had then been suspended, to be resumed ai a future time, it was in the power ol the Bank to produce the same evil whenever it was again attempted. Putting aside, therefore, From the view of the subject which lam now presenting, all the inducements which grew out of the miscon duct of the Bank, and regarding only ils approach ing end, and the intensity of the pressure it was then producing, no further delay was admissible. The facts and reasons above stated, appear to have established the following propositions: - 1st. It was the duty of this department, not to act upon the assumption, that the Legislative power would hereafter change the law', in relation to the Bank of the United States; and it was bound to regulate its conduct upon the principle Ihat the existence of this corporation would ter mmatc on the 3d of March, 1836 id. The public interest required that the tie posites of public money, should not continue to be made in the Batik of the United States, until the close of Its existence; but should be transfer red to some other place, at some period prior to that time. 3d. The power of removal being reserved ex clusively to the Secretary of the 1 reasury, by the terms of the charter, his'action was necessary in oider to effect if, and the deposits could not, according to the agieement made by Congress with the stockholder*, have been removed by the Legislative branch of the Government, until the charter to the Bank was at an .end. 4th The near approach of the time when the charter would expire, as well as the condition of the mercantile community, produced by the con ductof the Bank, rendered the removal indis pensable, at the time it was begun; and it could not have been postponed to a later day, without injury to the country. Acting on these principles l should have felt mvself bound to follow the course 1 have pursu ed* in relation to the deposites, without any refer ence to the misconduct of the Bank. But there are other reasons for the removal, growing out of the manner in which the affairs of the Bank have been managed, and its money applied, which would have made it my duly to withdraw the d« posites, at any period of the charter. It will, I presume, be admitted, on all hands, that the Bank was incorporated, in order to ere- j ate an useful and convenient public agent, to as sist the Government in ils fiscal operations The act of incorporation was not designed merely ns an act of favor to the stockholders, nor were ex clusive privilege* given to them for the purpose of enabling them to attain political power, or to amass wealth at the expense of the people ot the United States. The motive for establi*uing this [ vast monopoly, was the hope that it would con ' duce to the public good. It was creat-d to be 1 the agent of the public, to be employed for the benefit of the people, and the peculiar privileges and means of private emolument given to it, by the act of incorporation, were intended as rewards for the services it was expected to perform It was never supposed that its ow n separate interests would be voluntarily brought into collision with • those of the public. And still less,.was it antici- ' pated, that it would seek by its money to obtain political power, and control the* action of the Government, either by the favors it can shower, j or the fear of its resentment Its duty was aim- | ply that of an agent, bound to render certain ser vices to its principal, in consideration of the ad vantages granted to it. And like every other public agent or officer, its own separate interests were subordinate to its duty to the public. It was bound to consult the general good, rather than its private emolument, if they should hap pen to come into conflict with one another. If therefore it sought to obtain political power, or to increase its gains, by means which would pro bably bring distress on the community, it viola ted its duty, and perverted to the public injury, the powers which were given to be used for the 1 public good. And in such an event, it was the 1 duty of the public servants, to whom the trust was reserved, to dismiss it, so far aa might law- 1 fully be done, from the agency it had thus a* 1 bused I Regarding the Baok, therefore, as the agent of ; < the LJuited States, and bound by the duties, and 1 liable to the obligation! which ordinarily belong < to the relation of principal and agent, except where the charter has otherwise directed. - I pr* :eed to state the circumstances. wh,ch!h°w it had justly forfeited the confidence »f the Gov Prnment, and that it ought not to have been fur thrr trusted as the depository of pub ic n»«'nej. Ttie United States, by the chatter, reserved the right ol appointing five Director* of the Bank. It was intended by this means, not, m\j to pro vide guardians for the interests of the p»bl c, in the general administration of its affairs, but also to have faithful officers, whose situation would enable them to become intimately acquainted with all the transactions of the institution, and whose duty it would be, to apprise the proper aut ori ties of any misconduct, on the part of the corpo ration, likely to affect the public interest, lhe fourth fundamental article of the Constitution of the corporation declares, that not le»s than seven Directors shall constitute a Board for th# trans action of business. At these meetings of the Board, the Directors on the part of the United States had, of course, a right to be preaeut. an , consequently, if the business of the corporation had been transacted in the manner which the law requires, there was abundant security that no thing could be done, injuriously aftecting the in terests of the people, without being immediately communicated to the public servants, who were authorized to apply the remedy. And if the corporation has so arranged ns concerns, as to conceal from the public Directors some Ol Its most important operations, und has thereby destroyed the safeguards which were designed to secure the interests of the United States, it would seem to be very clear, that it has forfeited its claim to confidence, and is no longer worthy of trust. In the ordinary concerns of life, among individuals no prudent man would continue to place his funds in the hands of an agent, after he discovered, that he was studiously concealing from him the man ner in which they were employed. The public money ought not to be guarded with less vigilance than that of an individual. And measures of concealment, on the part of this corporation, are not only contrary to the duties of its agency, but are also indirect violation of the law^ to which it owes its corporate existence. nnu me misconduct, which, in the case of private indivi duals, would induce a prudent man t<> dismiss an agent from his employment, would require a si nfilar course towards the fiscal a»ent of the Go vernment, bv the officer to whom the law ha* en trusted the supervision of its condact, and given the power of removal. Tried by these principles, it will be found that the conduct of the Bank made it the duty of the Secretary of the Treasury to withdraw, frum its care the public funds. 1st. Instead of a Board constituted of at least seven Dirrectors, according to the charter, at which those appointed by the United States have a right to be present, many of the most import ant 7oonev transactions of the Bank have been, and still are placed under the control of a com mittee denominated the Kxchange Committee, of which no one of the public Directors, has been allowed to be a member since the commencement of the present year This committee is not even elected by the Board, and the public Directors have no voice in their appointment. They are chosen by the Piesidentof the Bank; and the bu siness of the institution which ought to be decid ed on by the Board of Directors, is in many in stances, transacted by this committee, and no one has a right to be-present at their proceedings but the President and those whom he shall please to name as members of this committee. I iius loans are made, unknown at the time to a majo rity of the Board, and paper discounted which might probably be rejected at a regular meeting of the Directors, the most important operations of the Bank are sometimes resolved on, and exe cuted by this committee; and its measures are, it appears, designedly, ami by regular system, so arranged as to conceal from the officers of the Government, transaction*, in which, the public interests are deeply involved. And this lact alone furnishes evidence too strong to be resisted, j that the concealment of certain important opera tions of the corporation, from the officers of the j Government, is one of the objects intended to be J accomplished by means of this committee. The ' plain words of the charter are violated, in order | to deprive the people of the United Slates of one of the principal securities, which the law had t piovided to guard their interests, and to render more safe, the public money entrusted to the care ol the Bank. Would any individual of ordinary discretion, continue his money in the hands of j an agent who had violated his instructions for the purpose of hiding from him the manner in which he was conducting the business confided to his charge? Would he continue his property in his hands when he had not only asceitaincd that concealment hail been practised towards him, but when the agent avowed his delermina tiun to continue in the same course, and to with hold from him. as far as he could, all knowledge of the manner hi which lie was employing his funds? If an individual would not be expected to continue his confidence, under such ctrcuip .. * J a mti 111 •» (I i fl’ii ron f “r*.. r -1— — ! line of conduct be required from the officers of the United States charged with the care of the I public interests? The public money is surely entitled to the same care and protection, as that of an individual, and if theTatter would be bound in justice to himself, to withdraw his money from the hands of an agent, thus regardless of his du ty, the s.ime piinciple requires that the money of the United States should, under the like circum stances, be withdrawn from the hands of their fis cal agent. And as the power of withdrawal was confided to the Secretary of the Treasury, it was his duty to remove it on this ground alone, if no other cause of complaint had existed against the Bank. The conduct of the Bank, in relation to the three per cent. Stock of the U. States, is a memorable in* stance of theabuses to which it is incident.The cir cumstances at tendingthat transaction have been so fully laid before Congress and the public, that it is useless to repeat them here It was a case in which this committee not only managed in secret a monied transaction of vast amount, in timately connected with the interests of the peo ple of this country, but one where the measures if the Government were thwarted by the Bank, rod the nation compelled to continue fora time, iable for a debt, which it was ready and desired ;o extinguish. Nor is this the only measure of he kind which has come officially to my know edge. I have the honor to present herewith a eport made by three of the public Directors to he President'of the United States on the 22d | •f April, 1833, (marked A.) in which, in com- g iliaoce with hit request that they would comma, itcate to him sucn infomation as was within heir personal knowledge relative to these unu „al proceedings of the Board ol Erectors, they I otiose the exceptionable manner ini "h'ch ‘he ,ower conterred by law on the Board has been turrendered to the Eschange Commt ee; that this has been done evidently with the design ol preventing a proper and contemplated examma lion into the accounts of persons whose paper was offered for discount: that a niinotiry ol the Board apparently suffuient to have prevented the loan, if the security was bad, were deprived ; of their votes upon the question; and that t >e I on established bye laws of the institution were set'aside for the purpose of carrying these de* ‘ signs into t fleet with less difficulty or embar-| rassment. . . . If | roceedings like this ore sanctioned bv t'-e constituted authorities of the United S aivs. appointment of Directors on their part is u. id e ceremunv. and nftVrds no safeguard to the pJ"( lie treasure, in the custody of the Bank Am even legislative enactments, in relation to th»> corporation, are of but little value, if H tiuv. at its pleasure, disregard one ol the fundamental articles of its constitution, and transfer to a secret committee, the business which by law, ounht to be transacted by the Board It is scarce |y necessarv in presenting this document to the consideiatian of Congiess, to notice an objec tion, which has been sometimes put forward against the publication of any proceedings winch relate to the accounts of private individuals — The circumstances derailed, aie the regular and official transtions of the Board of Directors, nor do they involve the private debtor and credit account of persons dealing with the Bank, which is alone included in the distinction taken by the charter in regard to private accounts. If the argument thus brought forward were a sound one, there could be no such thing as an examma tlon of my value into the conduct of the Bank. Because the business of the Bank being "ith individuals, its misconduct could never be shown without biinging before the public the individu al transaction in which the conduct of the Bank a II_I. .. _wl llw, was impeacneu. n«u u ihuui» h— position, that such proceedings are never to be exposed to the public, because individual's are concerned in them, it would effectually shut out all u»«fd examination, and be enabled to apply its money to the most improper purposes, with out dfiection or exposure. When its conduct is impeached, on the ground that it has used its great money power to obtain political influence, the investigation of the charge is in its very na ture, an inquiry into its transactions with indi viduals. And" although the accounts brought forward on such occasions may be the accounts of individ' a s, yet they are also the accounts of the Bank, and show its conduct. Aod being the fiscal agent of the Government, with such im mense power to be exercised, for good or for evil, the public safety require*, that all of its pro ceedings should be open to the strictest and most rigorous scrutiny Its charter may be forfeited by its misconduct, and w ould be justly forfeit ed, if it sought to obtain political influence in »he affairs of the nation. And yet such attempts on the part of the Bank, can never be proved except by the examination and disclosure of its dealings with individuals. 2d It is not merely by its concealments that the Bank has proved itself regardless ot the du ties of its agency. Its own interests will be found to be its ruling principle—and the just claims of the public lobe treated with but little regard when they have come into collision with the interests of the corporation. This was but too plainly the case in the affair of the three per cents above mentioned. A recent instance proves its rule of action is not changed in that respect. And the failure of the French Govprn- ( ment to pay the bill drawn for the instalment due by the treaty, has been made the occa sion of endeavoring to obtain from the public, the sum of 8158.84* 77, to which no principle j of justice appears to entitle it. 1 he money for which the bill was sold remained in the Bank.— The expenses it incurred were of small amount, and these the Government are willing to pay.— But the corporation, not content with the profits it was deriving from the millions of public mo ney then in its vaults, and which it was daily using in its discounts, endeavors to convert the public disappointment into a gainful transaction for itself, and demands the large sum above mentioned, without pretending that it sustained any loss or inconvenience, commensurate with the amount it seeks to obtain from the Govern ment. The fiscal agent of the public, attempts to avail itself ol the unexpected disapponment ! of the principal, for the purpose of enhancing ' its own profit* at the expense u!*the community. 3d There i* sufficient evidence to ptove that the Bank has used its means with a view to ob lain political power, *and thereby secure the re newal of its charter. The documents which have been heretofore laid before Congress, and arc now on its file*, Lhe aggregate debt due to the Bank, was 842, 402,303 24, and that on the 31st of December, 1831, it was 8G3.026.452 93, being an extention :>f its loans in a single year of twenty millions of dollars, and an increase of nearly fifty per cent, on its previous accommodations Ami, as if to leave us no room to doubt as to the motive of this extraordinary conduct, it con tinued to add rapidly to its loans, and on the 1st )f May, 1832, while its petition for the renewal jf its charter was yet pending before Congress, they amounted to 870.428.070 72, being an in rrease of 87,401,617 79, in the four preceding nonths, and making, altogether, an addition of 528,025.766 48, in the short space of sixteen nonths, and being an extension of more than 66 >er ct on its previous loans. Such an increase, it such a period of its rharter, is without exam ile in the history of Banking institutions. On he 31st of December, 1830, when its loans imounted, as above stated, to only 842,402,304 14, the corporation had been in existence four een years. The sudden and great increase was nade when the rharter was drawing to a dose, md when it had but little more than four years u run. It cannot be supposed that these im oens^ loans were made, from a confident expcc ation that the charter would be renewed. Oo he contrary, it is now an historical fact, that the Sank itself deemed the chonces of renewal so ( Inubtfol, that, in the session of Congress begin- , ting in December, 1881, it petitioned for a re- < barter, and the reason generally assigned for (resting for a decision, at that time, was the reat extent of its business; and the necessity of ( » I preparing to bring it to a close, if the charter *i4 not to be renewed. Thus, with but little mori than four years to run, with doubtful chanceUf renewal, and aware of the necessity of beginnm* to arrange its vast transactions, it increases i;j loans in sixteen months more than twcoty-ei*V millions of dollars. Was this imprudence on\* It cannot be believed lhat those ,who inaiia its qonceros could have committed such an over sight. Can any proper reason lie assigned fur this departure from the course which the inter, est* ot a monied corporation, as well as that ot the country, obviously required? | am not aware that any sufficient justification has been offered And this extraordinary increase of its loans, nude in <*o short a space of time, at such a period of u5 cleaner, and upon Hie eve ot a severely Contested election of President, in which the Bank took ji, open and direct interest,demonstrates that it mi u.mg i'8 money lor the purpose ot obtaining » hold upon the people of this country, in order to op«M tie upon their fears, and to induce them, l>r apprehension of-ruin, to vote against theuri dolate whom it desired to defeat.
