Tho pros pert ofa war with any powerful nation is t.i re- , ocanntterc.tcilcu!atKn. Besides, thei posed that would be adopted; the hand that de stroys the Constitution, rends our Union asunder forever. My friend has been pleased to remember, in his address, my humble support of the constitu tional right ofCongrcss to improve the navigation of our great internal rivers,and to construct roads thro' the different States. It is well known that my opinions on this subject arc stronger than most men's. Believing that the object of the union was to secure the general safety and promote the general welfare, and that the Constitution was designed to point out tho means of accomplish ing these ends. I have always been in favor of such measures as 1 deemed for the general bene fit, under the prescriptions and limitations prescri bed by the Constitution itself. I supported them with my voice and vote, not because they were for tho benefit of the West, but because they were for the benefit of the whole country. That they arc local in their advantages, as well as in their construction, is an objection that has been and will be urged agiinst every measure of the kind. In a country so widely extended as ours, so diver sified in its interests and in tho character of its people, it is impossible that the operation of any measure should alloc t all alike. Each has its peculiar interests, whose advancement it in? point, and what the plan? I do not expect um iW their commerce. No matter how rich the miraciei to follow cacli other. None could be pro- citizen may be in flocks an j hedd in houses and lands if his government does not furnish htm a medium of exchange, commerce must be confined to the petty barter suggested by mutual wants and necessities, as they exist in savage life. The history of all commercial countries shows that the precious metals can constitute but a small part of of this circulating medium. The extension of commerce creates a system of credit the trans mission of money from one part of the country to the other, gives birth to the business of exchange. To keep the value of this medium and the rates of exchange equal and certain, was imperiously re i quired bv the necessities of tho times when tho bank was established. Under tho old confedera cy, each of tho thirteen States established and resulatcd its own monev, which passed for its full value within the State, and was useless tho mo ment it crossed the State border. The little State of Rhode Island, for instance (I hope no son of hers present will take offence at what I say) so small that an Indian man might almost cover her territory with his hand, was crowded with B .nks. A man might have been rich at Provi dence, but bofre he could travel to Boston, fort' miles distant, he would starve for want of money to pay for his breakfast. Had this state of things continued some of the provisions of the Constitu tion would have been of nr force or virtue. Of what value to Congress would have been the right to levy taxes, imposts and duties to regulate com merce among tho different States, of levying and collecting imposts, if ea'-di and every one of them had possessed the right of payins; her taxes and du ties iu a currency of her own.which would not pass ono hundred miles, perhaps, from the Bank where it was issued. Ths creation of a National Bank presented tliowirost means of remedying these -"ip:iMiiiig one ot me principal ol- f m-f ifn t li 1 ! . Li: 1 th? Bank of the United States removed them.

The general debts in specie? and who can be expected to pay his debts, when the tjovcrnment has withdrawn the specie from circulation ? You have not felt the evil in its full extent. It is mostly in prospect, and you arc watching its approach. While you are endeavoring to guard against it, strive to prevent its future recurrence. As you would hunt down with hound and horn, the wolf who is miking nightly havoc of your flocks and herds, pursue and keep down those who would make havoc in your business and pro perty by experiments on your currency. Although the country has bowed beneath the pressure, I do r.ot fear that it will be broken down and prostrated in the dust. Depress them as it may, the energy and industry of the people will enable them to rise again. We have for a long time carried a load of bad government on our shoulders, and we are still able to bear up under brick, as heretofore : let them go and gather straw for themselves. And the tale ofthe bricks which they did make heretofore, ye shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish aught thereof; for they be i die, therefore do they cry. Let there more work bo laid upon the men, that they may labor .therein; and let them not regard suchword..

And the task-masters hasted them, say injr, Fulfil vour tasks, your dailv task?, as when there was straw. And the officers of tho children of Israel, which Pharaoh's task-masters had set o vcr them, were beaten, and demanded, Wherefore have ve not fulfilled your task in making brick, both yesterday and to-dav. as heretofore?
