The Lake and Illver navigation of tho (jrcat West, to omote which the Convention is called, very early had ihare of my attention, and I never had a doubt of the nstilntlonaltty or expediency of bringing that navlga>n within the circle of Internal improvement by the ideral government, when the object to be improved ould be one of general and national Importance. The junction of the two great system of waters, which cupy so much of our country?the northern Lakesoa hand, and the Mississippi River and its trlbulari es the other?appeared to rae to be sn object ot that araoter, and Chicago the proper point for affecting the Jon; and uear thirty year* ago, I wrote and published tlcles in a St. Louis newspaper in favor of that object, Heated, and ulmost accomplished by nature lierstlf, d wanting from man but littlo to complete it.

It is considered an inland towi Counting by time and money, the only true cominercli measure of distances, ami St Louis is nearer to the sc than New Orleans was before the steam tow boi abridged the ulstance between that city and the mout of the Mississippi.

With the attributes and characteristics of a sr port, she is entitled to the benefit of one, as fully and a clearly as New York or New Orleans. About twenty years ago, 1 moved in the Senate, an obtained an appropriation for a survey of the Kapids < tho Upper .Mississippi ; it was probably the first appri priation over obtained for the improvement of the u] per part of the river About twenty-tive years ago, moved, and succeeded in the motion, to include the Mil souri river in a bill for the improvement of Wester rivers?it was the first time that river had been so ir eluded. Thus, on the important items of the rhicng eauul, the rapids of the Upper Mississippi ami the Mil souri river, I was among the first to propose to includ them within the circle of internal improvement by th federal government. I have always been a friend of tha pystem, but not to its abuses ! and here lies the difilrul ty, and the danger, and the stumbling block to Us sue cess Objects of general and national importance chi alone claim the attention of the federal government and in favor of such oojects, I believe all the I. j art lilMIltM nf rh? in Ks. nnl(o<l ' ' ? tbein, and the Constitution can reach them, anil tin treasury sustain them Extended to local or a?otiona objects, anil neither the Constitution nor the treimur; could uphold them Nat ional objects of improvement ar* lew in number, definite in character, and manageubli by the treasury : local and sectional objects are innu werable. and indefinite, and ruinoua to the treasury.Near twenty yeara ago, the treasury was threatens with a demand for two hundred milliona of dollars fo objecta of internal improvement, then applied for, an many of them of no national import ance. The enormlt of the ium balked the system ; and so it must be agalt if the proper discrimination Is not kept up between loci and national subjects It la for Congress to make tha discrimination : the President cannot: he must rejec or approve the bill as a whole, llere, then, is the pint at which the friends of the system, in Congross. mm exert all their earn and vigilance. No arbitrary rule ca he given for the admission or exclusion of proper ohjecti but really national objects admit of no dispute ; and couflned to them, I apprehend but little danger of losini a bill, either from executive vetoes, or for want of vote in Congress.
