By Mr. Hamilton on the fiikjeS of a late Attack
upon the President of the United States, and the former
and present Secretary of the Tremfury, in relation to the
Ctmpenfation of the Prefident'.
AVEftY virulent attack has reeently been made upon the
President of the United States, the krefent Secretary of
the T'eafuiy, and myfelf as his pfedecelfor in office, an the
ground of extra payments ta the President en account of Wis
1 heclweej ifeinft all the three are less heinous tha*
thufe of 'Mention*! vialatißV of the Constitution, as the Laws
and of their refprflivt oath* of office, r annex the epithet
intentional, feetaule, though mi txprtilv uled in the term*
of the attack, it is implied in every lineaf ii: fiocean invo
luntary errarof construction, if that Could even be mad - out,
wfuld net warrant the imputations " of contemning and de
a/erx principle which the pepple have Hi-', lilhcd for the
Ireuruy cf heif • ifjhts. of fitting at ai; tea! and autho'
rity tifi of fernbf fuimj/fion and compliance with the Uvicjs
tut/ J.ul pleafitre oi a Ptefident "
Were confiaarauons pcifonal ta myfelf alone to be Cos
fulted, ihe picfent attempt woaldifce tieated with no greater
attention than has been (hewn to all the anoriyitieas Handera
by which I have been fa long and so implacably pursued. But
canvinced, byacourfeof obfe'rvatian for more than four
years, that there exists in this country an unprincipled and
daring combination, under the influence cf sinister aims, to
( obflrutt by any means whichJhtll be neujfary andean be command
ed, not short even of force, the due and efficient administration
. as the present government, to make our molt important na
, tional mterefts fubfcrvient to the views of a foreign power,
and, as meant to these ends, to destroy by cal««ny and mif
reprefentatiua the confidence of tht people in the truly virtu
-1 ous men as our country, and ta transfer it, with the power
of the State, to ambitiaus, intriguing and hypocritical pre
tenders to extraordinary merit and patriotilm. Perceiving
llkewife, lhat this infatuated combination, in the belief that
the well earned esteem and attachment of his fellow-citizens
towards'he present Chief Magistrate of the United States is
the principal rcmainiegabftacletothe execution of theirplan,
are maxing the most ftrcnucus and systematic efforts to extin -
guifh tiiolt (entimentsin the breads of :lie people —I think
it a duty to depart from my genera, rjale of conduct, and to
lobmit to the public, with my nam;,, an explanation of the
principles which have governed the Treasury Department oa
the point in q.Miion.
I (hall (late in the fiHt place, that the rule with regard to
expenditures and appropriations which has tniforHiiy regulated
the practice nf the Department, is this s vi*. to ijfue nt money
from the Treasury but for an otjed for which there was a law previ
ously pajjed, making an appropriation andd:/igruting the fund front
which the twney was to arlje. But there being fuck a law and an
adequate fund to fnpport the expenditure, it was deemed jujlipable t
as zvell befoit as aher the service was performed or the f u pp'y ob»
tained for which. the appropriation wat defined, to mat! djbujfo
ments from the Treasury for the abject, if it appearedJiife aniex-
pcdient so to do. If made before, it was aa advance ar tnticipa
' tin tor which the party was charged and heid aceeuntabJe,
'till exonerated by the performanceof the service or by the
furnifhing of thefupply—lt afterwards it was a payment, and
went to (ome general head or accouut as such.
Thus if a sum was appropriated for provifionsfor the army
~~ for a particular \ ear, it was common to make advances on ac-
T connt 10 the Contractors long before tile supplies were furni(b»
ad. If the law was passed in oue year for the next, there
would be no hesitation to make the advance, iinmediarely
after the passing of the law, and before the year to which the
appropriation was applicable, had commenced. 60 alfofums
won dbe furnilhed to the Department oi War in anticipa'ion
>n of the monthly pay as the officers and soldiers and other items
of expenditure. so likewil'e advances have been nsadfi
fortheufeof the President and of the members of bothhou
f« of Coagrefs in anticipation of their refpeitive compenfa—
— Ir 1 without difficulty be comprehended that this
practice of the Trevlury gn In iimwlu been tffential to
the uue course of the public service.
tm Every good judge will be lenfiblc, thar from the infufnei*
ency of individual Capitals to such largeadvances as the fup
piies of an army require, it was indif|>enfable to the obtain*
tngthcln, that auticipatioas from the Treasury (hould enable
the Contractor, to do what otherwise they would have been
unable to do j and that these anticipations mull also have had
theeffefl of procuring the supplies on cheaper terms to the
United -tates.
When it is eonitlered too that the army has operat
t. Ed for several yearn past at the diftanse of five or fix
— hundred mile* from the feat of Government, and a
, • considerable part of the year, from the rudeness of the
D. country and obftru&ions of wxters, it is iwpradicabls
to trsnfmit monies to the fienes of payment —it will
be perceived that without advances from the Treasury
in anticipation »f their pay, not only a compliance,
l " with the engagements of. he Oavernment would have
be«n impossible, but the troops must have been always
' left unreasonably in arrear. Injuns 1794, Congress
paflied a law declaring that the army ftould in future
be paid in such tnanner as that the arrears fhauld not
exceed two months—Compliance with this regulation
fenders anticipations at certain seasons, matter of Phy
fual necessity j yet that law gave no special authority
tr ' for the purpose.
A particular cafe, by way of example, in whichj
diftmit from general rules, advances or anticipations
r.u in the War Department are neceflary, refpetfls the re
cruiting service, the Officers detached on this service,
who are for a long time diliant from thtir c rps require
§ the accommodation of an advance o pay to be able ta
difeharge their duty. Towards the possibility of en
lilting men. it is iiidifpenfable they ihonld carry with
them the bounty money, and this upon conjecture of
what may be done, and with the possibility that from
not being able to obtain the men, the ultimate expen
diture may not take place. This initance will suggest
to reflexion an infinite number of cases, in the course
of the public service, in which a diiburfement from the
Treasury rrtujl precede the execution of the abjetl and
may exceed the sum finally requiCt* for it.
ual These cases indicate the expediency, and even nt
> ceffity of the conitruiftian which has regulated the
prance of the Treasury—And it might be (hewn, if
neceQary, that it is analogous to the practice under
the former government of the United States and under
other governments; and this too where the theory of
expenditure is, as expressed in our Constitution, that no
money (ball be expended, bnt in eonfequence of an ap»
>dk propriation by law.
;iu It remains to fee whether this rule of conduct, fa
indispensable in the praitice of the Department, be
t j, e permitted by a fair interpretation of the conftituitioa
lt ;J and the laws.
er, The general lnjuntflion of the Ccnftitution (Article
- u t I. § IX.) is that •' no money (kail be drawn from the
ds. Treasury but in eonfequence of appropriations made by
at The qneftion upon the elaufe is whether when an
; et. appropriation has been made for a particular service
or fupply,tbe atflual difcurfement from the Treasury
— must follow the service or supply, in the nature of
payment, or may precede it in the nature ef an ad
~vauci f I hold the last conftru&ion which is that
j- or adopted by the Treasury to be the true one.
The elaufe jest eited appears to me to be exaft
lntj ly equivilent to this ather elaufe— "No money Aall
_, be drawn from the Treasury but for which there is an
appropriation made by law," is other words, before
ot- money can legally issue from the Treafnry for any
so s purpose, there must be ft law authorifmg an expendi
ture and deGgnating the objetft and the fnnd. This
be being done, the diiburfement may be made consist
» aut!y with the constitution, either by way of aduaner
