You can hardly fail to avail yourselves of the
light which the experience of the past casts up•
on the future. . .
The growth of our population has now
brought us, in the destined career of our na
tional history, to a point at whirls it well be
hooves us to expand our vision over the vast
The successive decimal returns of the census
since the adoption of the constitution have re
vealed a law of steady progressive development,
which may be Muted, in general terms, non du
plication every quarter century. Carried for
ward from the point already reached, for only
a short period of time as applicable to the ex
istence of a nation, this law of progress, if un
checked, will bring us to almost incredible re
A large allowance for a diminished propor
tional effect of emigration would not very ma
terially reduce the estimate, while the increas
ed 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, the same ratio of growth,
which has been thus revealed in our past pro
gress; and to the influence of these causes may
be added the influx of laboring masses from
Eastern Asia to the Pacific side of our posses
sions, together with the probable accession of
the populations already existing in other parts
of our hemisphere, which, within the period in
question, will feel, with yearly increasing force,
the natural attraction of so vast, powerful, and
prosperous a confederation of self-governing re
publics, and will seek the privilege of being ad
mitted within its safe and happy bosom, trans
ferring with themselves, by a peaceful and
healthy process of incorporation, spacious re
gions of virgin and exuberant soil, whirls are
destined to swarm with the fast-growing mid
fast-spreading millions of our race.
These considerations seem fully to justify
the presumption, that the law of population
above stated will continue to net with undi
minished effect, through at least the next half
century; and that thousands of persons who
have already arrived at inaturity,k are nowexer
cising the rights of freedmen, will close their
eyes on the spectacle of more than one hun
dred millions of population embraced within
the majestic proportions of the American Uni
on. It is not merely as an interesting topic of
speculation that I present these views for your
consideration. They have important practical
bearings upon all the political duties we arc
called upon to perform. Heretofore our sys
tem of government has worked on what may
be termed a miniature scale, in comparison
with the development, which it must thus as
sume' within a future so near at hand,as scarce
ly to be beyond the present of the existing gen
It is evident that a confederation so vast and
80 varied, both in numbers and in territorial
extent, in habits and in interests, could only be
kept in national cohesion by the strictest fideli
ty to the principles of the constitution, as un
derstood by those who have adheared to the
most restricted construction of the powers
granted by the people and the States. Inter
preted and applied according to those princi
ples, the great compact adapts itself with heal
thy ease and freedom to an unlimited extension
of that benign system of federative self-govern
ment, of which it is our glorious, and I trust,
immortal charter. Let us, then, with redoub
led vigilence, be on our guard against yielding
to the temptation of the excercise of doubtful
powers, even under the pressure of the motives
of conceded temporary advantage and appa
rent temporary expediency.
The minimum of Federal Government, com
patible with the maintenance of national unity
and efficient action with our relations with the
rest of the world, should afford. the rule and
measure of construction of our powers under
the general clauses of the constitution. A
spirit of strict deference to the sovereign rights
and dignity of every State,rather than a disposi
tion to subordinate the States into a provincial
relation to the central authority, should char
acterize all our exercise of the respective pow
ers temporally vested in us as a sacred trust
from the generous confidence of our constitu
In like manner, as a manifestly indispensa
ble condition of the perpetuation of the Union,
and of the realization of that magnificent na
tional future adverted to, does the duty become
yearly stronger and clearer upon us, as citi
zens of the several States, to cultivate a frater
nal and affectionate spirit, lang,nage and con
dart, in regard to other States, and in relation
to the varied interests, institutions, and habits
of sentiment and opinion, which may respec
tively 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 pub
lic dealings of State with State, whether in leg
islation or in the execution of laws, aro the
means to perpetuate that confidence and fritter
nity, the decay of which a mere political union
on so vast a scale, could not long survive.
In still another point of view, is an impor
tant practical duty suggested by this consider
ation of the magnitude of dimensions, to which
our political system, with its corresponding
machinery of government, is so rapidly expan
ding. IN ith increased vigilance does it require
us to cultivate the cardinal virtues of public
frugality and official integrity and purity.—
Public affairs ought to be so conducted that a
settled conviction shall pervade the entire
Union, that nothing short of the highest tone
and standard of public morality marks every
part of the administration and legislation of the
general government. Thus will the federal
system, whatever expansion time and progress
may give it, continue more and more deeply
rooted in the love and confidence of the people.
That wise economy, which is as far removed
from parsimony as from corrupt and corrupt
ing extravagance—that single regard for the
public good, which will frown upon all at
tempts to approach the treasury with insidu
ous_projects of private interest cloaked under
public pretexts—that sound fiscal administra
tion; which, in the legislative department,
guards against the dangerous temptations in
cident to overflowing revenue, and, in the ex
ecutive, maintains an unsleeping watchfulness
against the tendency of all national expendi.
tune to extravagance,—while they are admit
ted elementary political duties, may, I trust, be
deemed as properly adverted to and urged, in
view of the more impressive sense of that ne
cessity, which is directly suggested by the con
siderations now presented.
Since the adjournment of Congress, the
Vice President of the United States has pass
ed from the scenes of earth, without having
entered upon the duties of the station, to which
ho had been called by the voice of his country
men. Having, occupied, almost continuously,
for more than thirty years, a scat in one nr the
other of the two Houses of Congress, and ha
ving, by MS singular purity and wisdom, se
cured unbounded confidence and universal re
spent, his failing health was watched by the
nation with painful solicitude. His loss to the
country, under all the circumstances, has Neon
justly regarded as irreparab:e.
In compliance with the act of Congress of
March 2, 1818, the oath of office was adminis
tered to him on the 24th of that month, at Ari
mine Estate, near Matanzas, in the island of
Cuba; but his strength gradually declined, and
was hardly sufficient to enable him to return to
his home in Alabama, where, on the eighteenth
day of April, in the most calm and peaceful
way, his long and eminently useful carver was
Entertaining unlimited confidence in your

Hobensack's Worm Syrup.
An article founded upon Scientific Principles,
compounded with purely vegetable substances,
being perfectly safe when taken, and has never
been known to fail in coring the most obstinate
case. Worms can never exist when this remedy
is once used, from the fact that it only destroys
them but removes all the slime and mucus which
The Tape 'Worm.'
This worm is the most difficult ono to destroy
of all that inhabit the human body. It grows to
an almost indefinite length, and becoming so
coiled and listened in the intestines and stomach
ns to produce Fits, St. Vitus' Dance, &c., which,
is the cause of many going to the grave, not be
lieving that these complaints have their origin
frau tho Tape Worm; consequently they do not
use the proper medicines for their disease. To
those who are afflicted with this awful foe to
health, I recommend the use of my Worm Sy
rup, and Liver Pills; the Syrup to ho taken in
deans of two table-spoonstuls throe times a day,
then take from 5 to 8 of my Liver Pills, to dis
loge and pass the worm. By strictly following
these directions, the most obstinate cases of Tape
Worm can be speedily cured.
Hound or Stomach Worm.
This worm is usually found in the small intes
tines, and is the worm most 'common to children,
yet is not entirely confined to them, as adults
have frequently been known to suffer with them.
The symptoms most promineht while affected with
this worn,, urn hardness and fullness of the belly
slimy stools, looseness of the bowels, picking at
the nose, a blueish streak under the eyes, &e.—
If you, or any of your children have any of the
above symptoms, Hobensack's Worm Syrup can
safely be depended upon—by using it you have a
certain, safe,ltnd speedy cure; and if after using
it according to the directions, the patient is not
restored to health; and the worms thoroughly
eradicated from the system, you can rest assured
there is no remedy beyond the grave, as for fail,
there is no such word as fail with those who use
my worm Syrup.
Ascarides, or Small Thread Worm.
These worms, to which the human system is
liable, are the most troublesome of all others.—
They are generally to be found in the rectum,and
if allowed to remain, frSm the irritation they pro
duce, lay the foundation for serious disorders,
such as inflamation of the bowels, and other de
rangements of the stomach. The best and safest
medicine that can be used is Hobensack's Worm
Syrup. Such is the astonishing power of my
medicines over Asearides,. that I defy any 3no to
produce a case where my worm Syrup and Liver
Pills are recommended to be used they will not
cure. All that is necessary is to use the Syrup
in accordance with directions on each bottle; and
in Cane a gentle purgative is required in order to
allay the irritation they produce, the Liver Pills
by their sympathising action and healthy opera
tion upon the bowels, is the most pleasant medi
cine that can be taken. -
Hobensack's Liver Pills.
No part of the system is more liable to disease
than the Liver, it being supplied with numerous
blood-vessels and nerves, and if diseased, the
blood of course flowing through all parts of the
body produces Liver Complaints, Jaundice. 13i1-

bounding, tho pain in the side is increased by
pressure, should the left lobe be affected, the pain
is generally in the left shoulder, with a short, dry
coughs, the skin becoming of a sallow appearance,
and the stools clay colored. 'This disease can be
cured by the use of Hobensack's Liver Pills, as
they act directly upon the seat of the disease, and
then operating upon the bowels they expel all the
corrupt and vitiated matter from the system.
Tito symptoms of Dyspepsia, and its various
diseases are dizziness is the head, heartburn, op.

the stomach, &e., and sometimes general languor
of the whole body, from this it will he seen that
the disease owes its origin to a disorganized
