GLASGOW WEEKLY TIMES, THURSDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 15, 1853.
whilst the embarrassments already encoun tored, and others under new contingencies to be anticipated may serve strikingly to ex hibit the importance of such a work, neith er these, nor nil considerations combined, oan havo an appreciable value when weigh ed against the obligation strictly to adhere to the constitution, and faithfully to execute powers it confers. Within this limit, and through the extent of the interests of the Government involv ed, it would seem both expedient and pro per, if an economical and practicable route shall be found, to aid by all constitutional means in the construction of a road which will unite, by speedy transit, the population of the Pacific and Atlantic States. To guard against misconception, it should be remarked that, although the power to con struct, or to aid in the construction of a road within the limits of a territory is not em barrassed by the (jucstion of jurisdiction which would arise within the limits of a State, it is, nevertheless, held to be of doubt ful power, and, more than doubtful proprie ty, even within the limits of a territory) for the General Government to undertake to administer the affairs of a railroad and canal, or other similar constructions: and, there fore, that its connection with a work of this character should be incidental, rather than primary. I will only add, at present, that fully ap preciating the magnitude of the subject, and solicitous that the Atlantic and Pacific shores j of the Republic may be bound together by inseparable ties of oemmon interest, as well ns of common attachment to the Union, I shall be disposed, so far as my own action is concurred, to follow the lights of the con stitution, as expounded and illustrated by those whose opinions and expositions con stitute the standard of my political faith; in regard to the powers of the Federal Gov ernment. It is, I trust not necessary to say that no grandeur of enterprise, and no present ur jrent inducements, promising popular favor, will lead me totiisrcgard those lights, or de part from that path, which experience has proved to be safe, and which is now radiant with the glow of prospority and legitimate constitutional progress. We can afford to wait, but wc cannot aCbrd to overlook the ark of our security. It is no part of my purpose to give prom inence to any subject which may properly be regarded as set at rest by the deliberate judgment of the people. But while the present is bright with promise, and the fu ture full of demand and inducement for the exercise of active intelligence, the past can never be wiMiotit useful lessions of admoni tion and inauruction. If its dangers serve not as beacons, they will evidently fail to fulfil the object of a wise design. When the grave shall have closed over all who are now endeavoring to meet the obligations of duty, thp year 1853 will be recurred to period "filled With anxious apprchen-; as a tiion. A successful war had just terminated Peace brought witli it a vast augmentation I.'IIL S ,111 U tt . - 11 1 II. - It I I . . . , j of territory. Disturbing questions arose, bearing upon the domestic institutions of one portion ot the States; but. notwithstanding I the difference of opinion and sentiment which ' then existed, in relation to details and ids. title provisions the acmliescence of distin- irilished citizens, whose devotion to the ; Union can never bo doubted, has given re- ! newed vigor to our institutions, and restor- j ed a sense of repose and security to the pub- lie mind throughout the confederacy. That this repose is to sutler no shock during my official term, if I have power to avert it, those who p'aced me here may be assured. The wisdom of men who knew what in dependence cost, who had put all at stake upon the issue of the Revolutionary strug gle, disposed of the subject to which I re fer, in the only way consistent with the "Union of the States and with the march of power and prosperity which has made us what we are. It is a significant fact, that, from the adoption of the Constitution until the officers and soldiers of the Revolution were carried to their graves, of through the infirmities of age and wounds, had ceased to participate actively in public affairs, there was not merely a quiet acqtiiescense in, but u prompt vindication of the constitutional rights of the States. The reserved powers were scrupulously respected. No statesman put forth the narrow views of casuists, to justify interference and agi tation; but the spirit of the Compact was re garded as sacred in the eye of honor, and ! on so vast a scale could not long survive, indispensable for the great experiment of! In still another point of view is nn un civil liberty, which, environed by inherent ! portant practical duty suggested by this difficulties was yet borne forward in appa- j consideration of the magnitude of d"imcn reilt weakness by a tower auj-B ior foall ob-! s'ons to which our political system, with its ttacles.

It is but the feeble expression of a faith strom? and universal to sav, that their sons. whose blood mingled so often upon the same field during the war of 1812, and who have more recently borne in triumph the flag of the country upon foreign soil, will never permit alienation of feeling to weaken the power of their united efforts, nor internal discussions to paralyse the great arm of freedom, uplifted for the vindication of self government. I have thus briefly presented such sug gestions as seem to me especially worthy of your consideration. In providing for the present, you can hardly fail to avail your selves of the light which the experience of the past casts upon the future, ihe growth of our population has now brought us, in the destined career of our national history, to a point at wiieh it well behooves us to expand our vision over the vast prospective. The successive decennial returns of the census, since the adoption of the constitu tion, have revculcd a law of steady pro- viesafve development vhioh may be stated ir, frneral terms, ea a duplication every quarter rtf a century. Carried forward from the point already reached only for a short period of time, as applicable to the existence of a nation, this law of progress, if un checked, will bring us to almost incredible results. A large allowance for a diminished pro portional effect of emigration, would not very materially redttee the estimate; while the increased average duration of human life, known to have already resulted from the scientific and hygienic improvements of the past fifty years, will tend to keep up through the next, fifty or perhaps hundred years, the same ratio of growth which has been thus revealed in our past progress; and to the influence of these causes may be added tha influx of laboring masses from Eastern Asia to the Pacific side of our pos Ififlloni) together with the probable acccs ion of population already existing in other parts of our hemisphere, which, within the period in question, will feel with yearly in creasing force, the natural attraction of so vast, powerful, and prosperous a confedera tion of self-governing republics, and will seek the" privilege of being admitted within its safe and happy bosom; transferring with thentselves, by a peaceful, healthy process of incorporation, spacious regions ol virgin and exuberant soil, which are destined to swarm with the vast, growing and spread ing millions ol' our race. I hese considerations seem fully to justify the presumption that the law of population above stated will still act with undiminished clTect through at least the next half century, and that thousands of persons who have al ready arrived at maturity, and are now ex ercising the rights of freemen, will close their eyes on the spectacle of more than one hundred millions of population embraced Within the majestic proportions of the Amer ican Union. It is not merely as an inter esting topic of speculation that I present these views for your consideration. They have important practical btarings upon all the political duties we are called upon to perform. Heretofore, our system of gov ernment has worked on what may be termed miniature scale, in comparison with the developments which it must thus assume within a future so near at hand, as scarcely to bc'beycnd the present, the existing gov ernment. It is evident that a confederation so vast and so varied both in numbers and in terri torial extent, in habits and in interests, could only be kept in national cohesion by the strictest fidelity to the principles of the Constitution, as understood by those who have adhered to the most restricted con struction of the powers granted by the peo ple and the States. Interpreted and applied according to these principles, the compact adapts itself, with that benign system of federative government, of which it is our glorious, and I trust immortal charter. Let us, then, with redoubled vigilance, be on "" guard against yielding to the temptation 01 uie exercise ot QOUDttUI powers, even Under the pressure of the motives of con- rerlfrl torr.lmrnrv rid v:11ltnire nnii Qmwfnl , J . .......v ...... Ult.Lk.ll temporary expediency. ihe minimum ol federal government compatible witn the maintenenee ol nation a' unify, and efficient action in our relations with the rest of the world, should afford the rule and measure of construction of our power under the general claims of the Con- stitution. The spirit of strict deference to the sovereign rights and dignity of every Stale, rather than a disposition to subordi- nate the State mto a provisional relation to the central authority, should characterise our exercise of the respective powers tem porarily vested in us, as a sacred trust, by the generous confidence of our constituents. In like manner, as a manifestly indispen sible condition of the perpetuation of the Union, and of the realization of that mag nificent future adverted to, does the duty become yearly stronger and clearer upon us. as citizens ol the several states, to cultivate a fraternal and affectionate spirit, language and conduct, in regard to other Slates, and in relation to the varied interests, institu tions and habits of sentiment and opinions, which may. respectively characterize them. Mutual forbearance, respect and non-interference in our personal action as citizens, and an enlarged exercise of the most liberal principles of comity in the public dealings of State with State, whether in legislation or in the execution of laws, are the means to perpetuate that confidence and fraternity, the decay of which in a mere political union tlie administration and Wislatbn of the General Government.

I properly adurted to and ureed in view of the more impressive sense of the necessity which is directly suggested by considerations now presen ted. Since the adjournment of Congress, the Vice President of the United States has oassed from the scenes of earth, without hav ing entered upon the duties of tha station to which he had been called by the voice of his countrymen; and having occupied almost continuously, for more than thir ty years, a seat in one or the other of the two hou ses of Congress, and having by his singular purity and wisdom secured impounded confidence and universal respect, his failing health was watched by the nation with painful solicitude. His loss to ihe country, under all the circumstances, has been justly regarded as irreparable.- In compliance with the act of Congress of March 2d, 18j2, the oath of office was adn inis tered to him on the 28th of that month, at Ariadne estate, near Matanxau. in the Island of Cuba, but his strength gradually declined, and was hardly sufficient to enable him to return to his home in Al abama, where, on the 18th day of April, m the most calm ana peaceful way, Ids long and general ly useful career terminated. Entertaining unlimited confidence in your patri otic devotion to the public interest, and being con scious of- no motives on my part which are not in separabl from the honor and advancement of my soimtry, I hepc it may t mr privileg to deteree and secnr not rmly your eordial co-operation in great public measures, but also those relations of mutual confidence and regard which it is always so desirable to cultivate between members of co ordinate branches of the Government.

We at the same time announced to them that all our efforts to bring the Porte, by means of amicable persuasion, to sentiments of equity, and to a faithful observance of treaties; bail remained fruitless, and that consequently we deemed it indispensible to order our troops to the Danube. But, adopting that measure, we still entertained the hope that the Porte would confess its errors, and would resolve to give satisfaction to our just reclamations. Our expectations have been deceived. It is in vain also that (he great powers of'Europe have endeavored, bv their exhortations, to shake the blind obstinacy of the Ottoman Government.
