Cat-the government of•tlie States of this
Union involve • the sovereign people' - in
debt, orley a-tax for othei than' the ordinary
expenses of government ? -We answer in
the negative • for the following reasons.—
To our government as a-nation is entrusted
the power to
.meke war and peace; regu- .
late commerce foreign and domestic, coin
money, regulate the currency, repel Inva
sion, suppress insurrection &e., and as in
cident to the war power and to, that power
alone, the government of the nation• can
borrow • money and pledge direct taxation,
for its re-payment.
The sovereigtVeople of the States _have
each formed governments for Alieficielie's
with exceedingly. limited powers, to wit:
to secure the lives of the people, to insure
the security of property, to secure equal jus-
tice, and the .uninterrupted purinit of happi
ness to':eacli individual. Tim State govern
moms can lay and collect taxes to pay the
ordinary expenses incident to the accom•
plishment of the above' objects and for no
other—purpose—whatsoever. The State
government cannot borrow money and in
volve the sovereign veople in debt bedause
it cannot -make war, and its powers being
limited and defined, it cannot interrogate
.the sovereign ns to whether it may mort;
gage the property and labor of the people,
to be afterwards filcheil-from them 'by tax
ation, and it is well questioned whether the
Legmlatuiebr any act.can alter or substi
tute the fundamental law.
THE FIFTH • WEEK. OF THE SES
SION has passed away withour-thes:,aa
conaplishment of any important object by
Congress; no bill . having yet' passed both
Houses but the partial appropriation
.Nothing his been thine, nor has there been
any step taken, beyond the report-of two
bills by the Committee olWays.and• Means,
towards providingt - foe - the deficit in the
ways and 'means, which is olcourse every
day increasing by the demands. which the
opening of the first quarter of , the
accumulates against the Treasury.
vernment with, such vast resources, end so
many...titles to high credit as that of the U.
States, may afford to trifle with its credit;
but the expediency of doing AO may well
be-doubted. The, pride:of the_ majority,
who are reeponsible for the•continuance of
this state of things, should, one would. think,
be stirred to prompt action by the undis
guised chuckling of the Opposition at ,the
poverty' of the Treasury, which is owing,
after, all, entirely 'to their. own neglect, be
fore. going out of power, to provide the
means for paying the debt with which they
themselves :had saddled their successors.

' The' only tWo . questions of, general con
sequence'vhich have beedagitated and

"first, the reference of the. question of ,re
venue, as connected with manufactures; to
the Comthittee ott anufacturee—by which
itseems to be - understood.as the'expressed
opinion of the House that the state of. the
manufactures of the country, as well "as the .
Wants of the.TreaSury, are to - be taken into
consideration'in the general revision of the
duties upon imports; andaecondly, the in
struction given by the vote of Saturday last
. report a bill
-to repeal the Bankrupt ,Law ; which, our
readers will recallect, thongh-paised-atthe-
Congrese, has not yet gone
into effect. - •
The vote looking to' the 'repeal of the
Bankrupt Law has, we confess, overcome
us with surprise at ita suddenness, and
with apprehension:for. its Consequences.—
re . thiev..rneasure,,ln connection with the
Land Histribution.and Pre-emption Law,
we had pointed with triumph as the two
great Pillar's of Whig policy, of which the
third was to be, and. we hive' yet a faint

,practicable,) of a sound - currency.,
could not bring-ourselves to believe, though
threatened. in the'orrate - ; - that - there---:was
uay serious design in Congress to repeal
that beneficial,act, which has called down
upon the heads ,df its authors more of 'thas.
incense; the savor. of which - •ascends .to!

Congress. We syrn . pathize most deeply

argument to them, we should urge that it
might have been expected, as more con
formable to usage as well as to reason, that
a law, sanctioned in terms by the Tonstitu
lion, passed with the consent of all branches
of the •Government, (under circumstances
which have since undergone no change,)
ought. to, undergo a fair trial. before

to the most abandoned malefactor, ought
not; surely, to be denied by Congrestr . to its
own offspring. Let us have the verdict of
public opinion upon it before it is con
demned. That opinion has not.been as
certained by any, process to be relied upon;
and, according to all the information that
has reached Us; is altogether moth favora
ble than averse to the law. Obdurate cre
ditors there may be, who,. not content with
obtaining . all that men can pay, would yet
hold their miserable debtors in bondage for
life. Imprecations upon the Bankrupt Law
