ttttlttt NOT THE GLORY OF CiESAlt 15 U T THE WELfAItl! O F It O M U . pitf BY II. B. STACY. SPEECH OF MR. BOND. Concluded. I wish, now, to mnko a Tew comments on the professions and practice n( Mr Amos Kendall, lalo Fourth Auditor, and now Postmaster General. This irciitlcinan, you know, sir, wot? an eleventh. hour Jackson man. He, however, wafc ntnong the first who got office j and immediately after his nppointmciil, a letter ol his is published, in which, after holding himself and a few friends up as having boon persecuted, he exclaims, '(vhat has (leaven done? So disposed of events, as lo make Harry Post master General, and myself a mere humble Auditor.' As to Jlr liarry, no matter, what events' made him Postmaster Gen eral, wo know that under his management that dopartnicnt was deranged and render ed insolvent ! utii now ior mis -numoic nuunor, or, ns Irnm his own question, ho is sometimes calico, 'Hits Heaven bom' Amos. Ifhislorv docs him justice, it will be found that ho desired office under Mr Clay, which, it not being in iho power of the latter to provide, Mr Kendall espoused the cause of General Jackson. In (his letter of Mr Kendall, he says: 'I feel bound by my obligation to my country, and oy pledges so otten repeated by ally the principal men of our parly, to promote, with all my talents and industry, the reforms which the people demand. I will prove that our declarations have not been hollow pretences. Beside, I hold the iforfcronco of Federal officers with Statoipolitics lo ba improper in principle.' Fot the reform under this last paragraph, I refer voti lo Mr Kendall's letters and toasti sent lo various political meetings nnu dinners throughout tho country tor a Jew jcars past, on the eve of State elec tions, When Mr Kendall entered upon the dutie( of Ins Auditor's office, ho caused to be published in the United States Tele graph, ihe then official organ, a letter, in whir'i ho savs, 'The interest of the coun try dfroand ihal this office shall be filled witMieu of business, and not with babbling 2inltlcinns.' Sir. the whole letter was the work'jf a babbling politician, expressly k lo-i.nated for political and demagogue end.-, which the writer, in the same breath, eaid lu had quit and led for others! I will read ' few passages from it, 'In five days I Iiqva returned lo the Dost office twenty Jotters; and three pamphlets, enclosed to the Fifjrth Auditor, and directed to other person !' How long after this letter was it befio Mr Kendall, for Iho purpose of buildup up the Globe newspaper, and the fortune of his friend Francis I'. Blair, annihi po,'on boor Jwcksoo nun, whom he nad Irony hi t rum his former residence at Fr.iikiori, Kentucky.) eent under his frank to Kentucky, and perhaps elsewhere, the. prospectus of this newspaper ? In ih.it name letter Mr Kendall also says: 'Upon entering this office on Monday lasi oii'of lliu lir.t objects which (struck my ey" was a pi'u of nuwspapers on my table. Among them, I counted sixteen difi'-rent papers, all of which I was told were .ulcribcd for by the Fourth Auditor, and par) for out of the Treasury.' II Mill them hack, as he then stated, with a note lo each; of which the follow ing is a copy : TmusuitY Department, FourlL Auditor's Office, .March 24, 1029 Sin: Not believ ing that I am author ized to charge tlio Government with sub scriptions to newspapers and other publica. lions, which arc not useful to tne in ihe discharge of my official duties; and not perceiving that I can derive any assistance from your journal in settling the accounts of the United States Navy, I have to request that yon will discontinue sending it to thin office. Very respecfully your obedient nervant, AMOS KENDALL. Here, 51 r Speaker, is a fine display of the pride, pomp, and circumstance' of office, if not of official insolence. Hut yesterday he was h'uns'df the editor and publisher of a newspaper ho next appears, in his own language, on humble Auditor;' But, sir, does not the letter just read show that ho had forgo ton Ins humility, and become puffer up 'villi official consequence? Why dij he not simply tell his brother editors, in brief and respectful language, that he had discontinued the subscription for their paper? But a fuilher thought is suggested by this letter if Mr Amos Kendall, and his reason for discontinuing newspaper sub scriptions. He is now, sir, Postmaster General. Suppose wo look at the state mint of (hi) contingent expenses of his office for tint last. year. Do you think we tbull find any subscriptions for newspapers there 'paid (or out of Iho Treasury?' Lis ten to a few items: Southern Literary Messenger, gio 00 New York Journal of Commerce, 10 00 Alleghuny Democrat, 14 nj Pennsylvanian 0 00 Indian Biography, G 00 Metropolitan Magazine, 0 00 , Three copies ot the D. Globe! ! ! 30 00 Richmond Enquirer, 5 00 Sundry others which I will not stop to name tlio whole number being twenty or cpwarus, anu ino total subscription wiimn a email fraction of J200 ! Ho was frightened at a pile of IG newspapers, but ho can now tako 20 at a dose! Can it bo possible that n man, who camo into office declaring, like the Pharisee of old, that 'ho was not like n inr mpn nno wn 1 nvon ti iim mini. and cummin,' ucgnis already to 'neglect thei weightier manors of iho law?' VULat Incomes of Ins inflated promise 'to prove' that his 'declarations had not been hollow pretences? Of what valuo was his declaration made in his letter before refer, red to, and in which he says, 'Vain I may be, proud I nin, that the President has giv en mu nn opporlunily to aid him in proving that rfifnrm is nnt nn riiinlu cniinil nnil ia I - - - - I not to apply merely to a chango of men ? I Why, sir, I quote as a reply to those ques tions his own words, in another passago of his own letter 'The world will know him at. last, and assign him his truo rank.' 'Truth is omnipotent, and public justice certain.' Among Mr Kendall's reforms may bo mentioned iiis leading agency in the removal of the public deposites from the Bank of tlio United States. To effect this, lie carried on a system of 'billing and cooing' with the state banks, and, in the language of a certain Senator (Mr Benton J 'debauched them' Ycs, sir, debauch is the word.' I apply it to tno uovoniincnt and banks, though the Senator thought the People had been debauched, and applied it to them. For this work of 'debauch,' which proved so serious a curse to the country, this agent was employed 32 days, and was paid for this service the sum of $310 II, being about ten dollars a day for a job which has occasioned much of the embarrass ment under which the country now labors lie got $'10 a day for doing this injury to the public a hard-working laborer finds it difficult to sot his dollar a dav. But still Mr Kendall belongs to the 'democratic party ,'and whilst he received his 8.10 a day for that work he also re ceived the regular salary of his ollicc. 'Pi.: .... ... 1 , . , j. 1110 uji(umo 10 uu ,111 esiaoiisncd usage ot tins Administration. The case of the Attorney General is already mentioned. The reports from the De partments show several other cases, though I will now only add' that of the commissioner of Indian Affairs, who was for a while acting Secretary of War and during this period drew the salaries" ot eacn ollicc, beinrr at the rain nf 9,000 a year. . But, Mr Speaker, no man better knows all the uses of office than Mr Kendall. I have read a political tract, written. I thing, by Dean Swift, entitled somewhat in this way 'The convenience of .1 place at Court, or a sure mode of nrovi- ding garments for a whole family.' Mr Kendall appears to understand the 'mo dus operandi' of this matter. The printed list of clerks in his Department exhibits his father-in-law and two ne phews, with salaries of 81,000, $1,200 and $1,400; and thus we see a family provision of nearly 3 10,000 a year, inclu ding his own salary. But Mr Kendall is not the only ofiicer who thus takes care of his own household. If provision of this kind be evidence of 'faith,' few ol them will be found 'infidels.' The Pres ident's son has an office, which I have already mentioned, of $1,500 a year. The Secretary of State's son. until verv lately, held the place of District Attor ney 111 Alabama. A near iclative by marriage 01 uie secretary ot the Trea sury has a comfortable annuity of $!. 400 in the Navy Department ; another holds tlio appointment of naval ofiicer in Boston, with a salary of $3,000 pet year, besides being President of the Lay fayette Bank of that city ; and a third is the Cashier of the Franklin Bank of that city, which became q special pet under the pet bank system. These gentlemen would all make excellent sub-Treasurers! Mr Bond said, when the proposition for retrenchment, was under considera tion here in 1828, the friends of Mr Adams, by way of proving that he and they desired every just economy and reform, pointed to his Message recom mending it. How were they answered? Why, sir, Mr Ingham, who soon aftor tcrwards was made Secretary of the Treasury, said it was indeed true that the Message did recommend it, but lie wanted to see more practice and. loss profession in this matter. There were no specified reforms found in the mes sage; he could only find there one of those lormal recommendations, which were as unmeaning, he said, as the words 'your humble servant' at the foot of a letter. Mc Randolph, in the same debate, used this language, on the sub ject of retrenchment and reform "The President did recommend them in one of those lofty generalities with which all sermons, political or religious, abound; which might be printed in blank, like law process and filled as oc casion might require. But, sir (said he) I am for looking at the practices, and not at the precepts of the parson, politi cal or religious." Mr Bond said this rule of Mr Ran dolph was perfectly just; it was thus shown, too, to be avowed by this Ad ministration, and he was willing to judge them by their own rule, and thought to this they ought not to object. He would leavo it to the House and to tho People to say whether tho 'practices'of this Ad ministration 'had conformed to their pre cepts.' Was the recommendation in General Jackson's innugural address ono of those 'lofty generalities' just spoken of, and defined by Mr Randolph Tho 'Unit Cabinet' must havo lost tho art of read ing, otherwise 'reform' was not quite so 'legibly inscribed' as tlio General imnrrinrwl. 'I'll.ll nnlrniiiirrn nfllin I'i.L I w W ' f FRIDAY, oral Government which was said to bo brought into conflict with tho freedom of state elect ions has greatly increased, and is still unrestrained, in the same conflict. The gentleman from Tennessee (ilr licit) lias lor years labored to bring this House to the consideration of a bill to secure the freedom of elections, and thus carry into effect the recommenda tion ofGcn. Jackson's inaugural address. Able as that gentleman is, and untiring as he has been in his efforts, the meas ure proposed by him has received the frown instead of tho fevor of this Admin istration. He and the venerable Sena tor from tho same state (ilr. White were the early and devoted fiicnds of General Jackson, and they still desire to carry into practical effect the princi ples which they, with General Jackson, profess to be governed by. They foci and know the imminent danger which threatens the country, in the increased strength of the patronage of office. They sec, and we all sec, that the office holders arc 'abroad in the land.' For a description of this growing phalanx and its powerful incentive lo action. I will draw on high authority. A member of the Senate, Mr Grundy J a zealous friend of General Jackson, the evidence of which has been already given in his own words, held tins language, when aiming to pull down the old Administra tion: 'When I see (said he) an oflicc- noiucr niicriorinir 111 elections, it lias oc currcd tome that he was thinkinir of his salary, and is, therefore, an unlit advi ser ol the People. Mr Speaker, that which occurred to M Gr.undy no doubt often occurred to you a 1110 same pcriou. 1 no proposition is a very natural one, and I think that recent evenis have strengthened rather than impaired Us truth. lint I beg tlio lurlher uidul-'once of ibe House while I read what another distinguished friend of General Jackson said, when debating the subject of retrench, mcnt and reform on this floor. I allude to Mr Buchanan, now a Senator from Penn sylvania, and, with his continued and "row ing devotion to the party, what he said will certainly be considered 'orthodox.' I find, by that debate, that he said it was well known, 'That when a man is once appointed to ouico, an the scllisli passions ot his nature are enlisted for thu purpose of retaining ii. The office-holders (said he) aro tlio enlisted soldiers ot that Administration by which they are sustained. Their comfortable ex istence often depends on the re-election of their patron. Nor does disappointment long rankle in the hearts of iho disappoint ed. Hope is still left to them j and bearing disappointment with patience they know will present a now claim to olficu at a fu luri) time.' This passage of Mr Buchanan's speech proves him to have been an observer of men and tilings, and familiar with the leading principles 0 human action. He dreaded the consequences of the selfish spirit of the office, holder, and induced the country to believe that Gen Jackson nod his friends would provide a sii'tablo restraint upon it. Cut I fear, sir, the People will be left to conclude that this gentleman is one of those 'political parsons' described by Mr Ran dolph, whose 'practices' do not correspond with his 'precepts.' It is certain that, un der the favorite Administration of ihe gen. tlcman and his friends, ihe office-holders have received new life, instead of a check. But I mutl yet point out another discrepan. cy between Mr Buchanan's profession and practice. In the same debate, he reviewed, with censure, several of the foreign mis sions, that to Russia included ; amf partic ularly condemned any practice allowed a minister to 'return after one year's absence.' His language is 'if such a practice should prevail, our ministers, in violation of the spirit of the existing law, will receive, by adding the outfit to the snlarv. illii.onn. in 1 stead of g9,000, for ono years' service.' ' am' Ba'id he, 'against the practice.' this, Mr Speaker, was his precept. But, sir, in a brief space of time, after condom nin and saying 'I am against tho practice,' wo see ban tako tho bounty, and become ono of the 'enlisted soldiers' whom ho had described, and go- on a foreign mission lo uussia, wncre, after staying 'a twelve- month ond a day,' ho pockets the 'Cl 0,000 nisicuu 01 jj-j.uuu, tor a year's service,' und comes homo ! This seems to bo an appropriate time to compare the precepts and practice of Mr Randolph, too, who said he, 'was for look ing at tho practices, anil not tho precepts of the parson, political or religious. In that same debate, Mr Randolph said ho 'could not permit any motive nnnnnnii-l with the division nf tho spoil, to mingle Uilll l.ia l..r,o II.. II with' no i-ngiuuiioi uu WIIUU OOI. lin saiu, give up iiis constituents and iho pleasures of his home, 'for a clerkship in tho War Office, or a foreign mission; or even for a Department of Slate.' Ho said 'thcro had been on improvement in thu plan of sending ministers abroad, and bringing ihem hack, when they have finished their business; for,' said ho, 'thev aro now seut obroad on sleeveless errands, that they may come back re-infecta, to pncKei their emoluments.' Air bpeaker, till) Greeks nnil liiimnim hntli held it in lm a highly useful, hut exceedingly difficult' matter, to know one's Eolf. Modern histo ry, am! our own times, add now force, to tho truth of (hat position. I do not at all question Iho perfect sincerity of Mr Ran dolph, when he uttered thu sentiments ; but groat as ho may have been, and skilful as ho professed to bo, and, no doubt, was,

Indeed this mission to ItusHa seems to hn,e been tpccially dedi cated by 'the Partv' to short inrinq nf uiv oud twelve mouths, for tho ndvjtitago of some ot tho 'enlisted soldiers' described bv iir uticuanan. in this way, the cost of that mission lias been inordinately in crease; and it is high time Unit this "drain 011 the public treasury for private benefit should be checked. Mr Bund said it was not to bo disguised that maiy of tho politicians who cngnged in tho debate oud btrifu or tho timed "to which he had allntbd, had been surprised, if not disappointed, by events which soon followed. A singular exchange of position has taken place between two of these gen tlemen. When the retrenchment res'ilu. lion was discu-sed, a friend of tho then administration. Mr Pcarco,of Rhode Island, took ground, not in lerni. but snmnwhni similar lo that now nvowed mid practised oy mo dominant parly, 'that tho snoils belong to thu victors.' Mr Wick lift'.', a JacKson reformer, denied and condemned such a right. Ho was npnninted 11 mnmlier ofliic retrenchment and reform committee, and, aftpr General Jackson came into power, Mr Wicklid'e zealously endeavored lo carry out the promised reform, but 1101 finding Iho co-operation ho had oxpectcd ; he nlijiircd 'the parly.' About this time, it happened that the reformer avowed the doctrine Mint the spoils belong to the vic tors,' and Mr Peurco cnlisteduudor their banner. Sir, has not the country boon disappoint ed ? Have not tho people been deceived and allured by epeciom and vain promises? Has not the federal Executive patronage inordinately increased, and is it not ttill unrestrained? Is not tho power over it abused and perverted ? I) not the ex pense of our general government far tran sr.pud in amount all our past history? Why ore these things so, and why has not this 'plague been slaved.' Mr Speaker, according to your plighted faith ? i will tell you why, sir, but I prefer doing so in the language and illustration of "one of your own friends, Mr Buchanan, of the Senate, to whom I have before referred. In his speech here, to which I have already alluded, and when he was assault ing the (then) administration, he thu? exclaimed ; 'The very possession of power, has n sirooir. n natural tendency to corrupt the heart. Tlio lust of dominion grow--with its possession; and the man who, in humble life, was pure, anil innocent, nnil just, has often been transformed, bv the mug possession ot power, into a monster. In Iho sacred hook, which contains lessons of wisdom for the politician ns well as fur the christian, we find a happy illustration of ihe corrupting influence of power upon the human heart. When Hazaol came to consult Klishu whether his master, tlw, King of Syria, would recover from a dan- gerous illness, the prophet, looking through ino vista ot tuturity, saw tho crimes of which the messenger, who blood before him, would be guilty, and ho wept. II.i. .lei asked, 'vhy wcepeth my lord ?' The prophet then recounted to him the murders and the cruellies of which he should he guilty towards the children of Israel. Ilazacl, in the spirit of virtuous indium lion, replied, 'k thy servant n dog, "that he should do ibis thine?' And "n'Uhn answered, 'The Lord hath shown me that thou shalt be King over Svria.' This inn ii afterwards became King by the murder of his master, and was guilty of enormities, the baru recital of which would mnko ik shudder.' How true, and. alas ! how annlicabln is nils sacred illustration to those who invoked its use in elevating Iheni'.elves to power ! Suppose, Mr Speaker, that some iosoir. ed Kltslia had been present when vou and Mr Buchanan, wit Ii others, engaged in the ueuaie which has been relerred to. and moved bv the sympathetic lonr of the prophet, you asked, 'why wecpeth my lord how would you have 'boon astonished being then lold what the people of this ooooiry nave since realized ! Imagine, sir, the inspired ono looking through the vista of a few brief years and saying, You will be placed in power, but win greatly increase the amount of all pub lie expenditures. You will use the offices and patronage of the country for private ami nut for public good. You will create offices for favorites. You will eularfo all hxecutivo power. You will deny tho right to call for reasons on a removal from office, and in a few years will remove more than 1S00 persons from office for opinion's sake! You will derange und corrupt thu Post Office Departmoni, which you now admit to bo sound, and you will not reform any of your designated abuses in the other Depart ments. You will appoint more members of Congress to ollicc in four years than has been duno in all the past history of the Government, Your bill for the abolition of the power and patronago over the Press will sleep the sleep of death. You will re tain 'iho press, Iho post office, the armed force, and the appointing power in the hands of the President, ond will not suflei them to change position not tako post on tho side of the People. You now censure a sipall appropriation to purchaso noino ad. ditmnal furnituro for thu President's house, but you will furnish that house in luxurious stylo for Gen. Jackson, who will be sue ceedod by Mr Van Buren; and ho, nut content with the second hand furnituro ol his predecessor, will cast it off and make Ins entry into thai edifice, with onu appro, prialionof 7,300 for alterations of the huuso and superintendence of tho gronndv and unoihur appropriation of i20.000 for new furniture; and this, too, in tho very i year when vmi' public treasury will be bankrupt.
