ToeptopU of tht United Stalest
J'Wduf Citizens Tho scene of deep
distress, Vhich- everywhere pervade ,our
country, call loudly for 'some measure to be
iufcjptcd lint shall restore confidence, roylye
the drooping energies of bur nation, and
give a healthy tono to the circulating rac
(liujui Although this dcplorablo state of
tilings Imsvfor yearn, been growing upon
our nation, and rising it) wretched climax,
rtin bad to worse, mill the attention pf the
jorltyj has been diverted from this grow
The din of parly politics has been con
linually ringing in our ears, and those who
havo been placed as sentinels upon the
watchtower of our nation.gavo not the alarm
of danger, but have continued the cry, all is
well, all is well, while at the same time,
the cloud so big with distress, could not be
unobserved by thoao whose duty it was to
iound llio alarm.
And now that deep distress, can no longer
be hid, those who should havo been the
first to give the alarm, arc instant With loud
Tsices in "charging the cause of distressed
every source but tho right one, and arc rea
dy to raise any excitement that shall divert
the public attention from tho true and legit
mate source of the distress what now per-
redes our nation. And do you ask, what
the source of this distress may be? Ian
swr,, that according to my train of observa
lions of manners, customs, and (ho laws of
nations; as well as the laws of justice, ex
pediency, and the true principlo of ptogres
tire liberty, pride has been an ingredient,
extravagance another, a wild spiiit of spec
ulation another, and an eniiro violation and
abuse of all the banking privileges, another,
and to cap .the climax, idleness, gambling,
and a wild excitement after vain wit and
theatrical amusements, havo slept in and
drawn-thousands within the vortex of ruin.
These, are the causes to which wo must
tscribo this deep distress, which is so
widely sjwead and a tearfully felt.
And I wouid here enquire of aur legisla
tors and ex-legislators, if they have not
steeply participated in many of these cau
ses? If they have not departed, and that
widely, from the pattern set by eur beloved
and honorable WASHINGTON! If they
hare not sown the seeds of pride and ex
liavagancel If they have not festered the
flint of wild speculation and the abuso of
joanitiDg privileges! If they have not
dug aboul.the roots and Well manured the
tree ul idleness and gambling, ami cherished
the vine of wild excitement after vain wit
and theatrical amusements!
Then, if these degrading vices havo been
planted, watered and nourished by the leg'
islatois of state that eompose a nation.ls it
any wonder, if they become national vices,
and grow with the nations growth, and
strengthen with the nations strength, until
they, at length, destroy confidence, and
spread misery and distress throughout the
length and breadth of the whole land, as
we see they have done in this our land once
If then we are only reaping an abundant
harvest which the seed sown would natu
rally produce., what reason have we to com
plaint Senators and Statesmen, Financiers
and Judiciaries, are all brought to feel and
drink uf the common cup which they have
leen so industrious in mixing, and while
they were placed as the guardians of moral
ity, virtue, and national economy, they have
cherished their oppositss, and thus become
chargeable with the distress of the nation
And what do those Senators, Statesmen,
Heroes, Fiiiancicrs',and Judiciaries propose
to do in older that the wheel of National
and,Sta,te prosperity may be unlocked!
Nothing that is likely I survive the mo
ment, and give any lasting benefit, but we
see them preparing for an activo political
campaign, that they may have a foil list of
competitors for the Presidential chair.
And is all this jargon of politics to be before
the American people for two full years; and
'tho wants of tho country cast in the back
ground! Will Americans suffer themselves
longer to be led by aspirants for office and
hired stump orators, who make the tour of
the states, proclaiming to tho multitude the
Virtues of this, and the vices, of that candi
date, exalting this and debasing that parly
and thus sacriQco (he welfare ol the nation
at'tho shrine of political party!
Let the intelligence be once fairly aroused
and the American people can force the!
seniors to take measuies to meet the wants
of the country. The wants of the many are
to be supplied for the wants of the many
.arc the wants of the country, and tho con
flitution calls ,fqr ihc publio servants use
II honorable means to maintain the credit
nd faiih of the nation,-and" yet' tliey - have
not done it.
Let the press beeoiuo tho vehicle of
inquiry and communication, and let the
people hold meetings where the wants of
the nation may be fairly discussed, and
where measures may be proposed for the
removal of these evils; that the people may
have an opportunity of deciding en some
measure, that they may unitedly present
the same before the properly constituted
aulhoiities for legislative action. Tho poo.
plo must, be united in asking if they expect
to receive any thing at the hands of the
rhtii I have endeavored to set before the
nation tho true source of the present dis
tress in hopes that tho subject may bo taken
up and examined with candor and imparti
ality, and in my next I shall endeavor to
present a plan for tho alleviation of tho
present distress of tho nation.
