T<< th' Houte of Rrpmrntalitrt: ? On (hi iMt Juy of the last session of Congrew, a bill entitled " an ant tn protide for continuing certain wcrk* in the territory of Wirconiin, and for other parpMrn." which bad punir J both house*. *u presented to mm ftr my approval I entertained losuperable objection* to lt? becoming a li?, but the short period of the resales whir It remained, afforded me no sufficient opportunity to prepare uiy objection*, and communioate 7i'b the bill, to the House of Representative*, la which it originated. Kor this reason. the bill waa ra to U 1-1 ' Je,,al'' l)t0P,r now to ?tate my objection* Although, from the title of the bill, it would *e*m that It* main object waa to make provision lor continuing certain work* already commeuoed in the territory of Wlsoonain, it appears, on examination of lta piovialoo*, tint it contain* only a single appropriation of aiz thou- ? *and dollar* to be applied within that territory, while It appropriate* more than half a million of dollar* for the improvement of numeron* harbor* and rivrra lying within the limit! and j urUdiotlon of i?v*ral of the State* of the I'nlon. At too preceding *e*sion of Congre**, it became my duty to return with my objection* to the llou*e in which it originated, a bill making almllar appropriation*, and involvi g ILke principle*, and the Tiew? then txpreaaed remain unchanged The circumstance* under which thle heavy expenditure of publio money we* propoeed, were of impoaing weight In determining upon it* expediency. Congre** had recoguiaed the exiitence of w*r with Mexloo, and to proaecute It to " a (peedy and *ncc*a*ful termination," had made appropriation* exceeding our ordinary revenues To mret the emergency and provide for tha expenses of the government. a loan of twenty-three nil lions of dollars was authorized at I lie unit session which has oiiice negotiated The practical effect of thla bill, bad It become a law ..would have been to add tka <*l>?'le amount appropriated by it to the national debt It would la ftct bare made necessary an ?ddltlenal loan to that amount aa effectually aa It In lama It bad required the Secretary of the Treasury to borrow the money therein appropriated. The main queatlon in that aspec'. <a whether it 1* wlsa, while all tha mean* and credit of the government are needed to bring tha eslatiug war to au honorable close, to impair tna ana aad endanger the other bv borrowing money to be expanded in a system of iuterual improvement, oapabla of an Mpanslon sufficient to (wallow up tha revenues not oaly of our own country, but of the civilised world? It la to be apprehended that by entering upon luch a career at this moment, confidence at home and abroad. In tha ; w.sdom and prudence of the government, would be so l far impaired a* to make it difficult, without aa Immsdl1 ate reaurt to heavy taxation, to maintain tha public crei dit, and to preser+e the houor of the nation and thagloj ry of our armi in prosecuting tha existing war to i a successful conclusion Had this bill become a law, It I Is easy to foresea that largely inereaaad demands upon toe treasury would have been made at each succeeding session of Congress, for the Improvement of numerousothur harbors, bays, inleti and rivers, of eqnal | importance with those cm braced by Its provisions.'Many j millions would probably h?v* bean added to tha aeoaasary amount of the war debt, tbe annual interest on whioh mutt also have been borrowed, aad, finally, a permanent national debt been fattened on the oouatry, and entailed upon porturity. The policy of embarking tba federal government la a ; general system of Internal improvements, liad its origin but little more than twenty years ago. In a vary fit years the applications to Congress tor appropriations la furtherance Of such objicti, exceeded two hundr?4 millions of dollars. In this alarming crisis, President Jackson refused to approve and sign the Maysvllle road bill, the Wabash river bill, and other bills of similar churactsr. His interposition put a check upon tha naw policy of throwing the coet ot local Improvements upon tbe national treasury, preserved the revenues of the nation fur their legitimate objects, by whioh he was enabled to extinguish tbe then existing public debt, aud to present to an admiring world tha unprecedented spectacle, in modern times, of a nation free from debt, aud advancing to greatness with unequalled strides, under a government which was content to act within its impropriate sphere In protecting the States and individuals, in their own chosen career of improvement aud enterprise Although the bill under consideration, proposes no appropriation for a roau or canal, It Is not eacy to perceive the difference in principle or niiachevicus tendency between appropriations lor making roads and digging canals, and appropriation* to deepen rivers and improve harbor*. All ara alike within the limits and jurisdiction of the States; and rivers and harbors alone open ao abyss of expendl, turn Huflloient to swallow up the wealth of the nation, and load it with a debt whtota may fetter lta energies and tax lta Industry for ate* to eome. The experience of several ef the States, an well as that of the United \ states, during the petiod that Congress exeroised power of appropriating the publio money for Internal laproveuients, is lull of elo<|Uent warning. It seems impossible, in tbo nature of itierubjeot as connected with local repriseutatlon, that the several objeotl presented for Improvement, shall be weighed accerdlng to their respective merits, and appropriations conferred to thoM 1 whoso Importance would justify a tax on the wbolo community to ellect their accomplishment. In some of the States systems of internal Improvements have been projected, consisting of roadl Mid eai>?l\ many of wtiich, taken separately, were not of sufficient public linp<riaDce to justify a tax on tfc* entire populatii n of the State to tlfeet their construct on ; and yet. by ocnibtuation of loaal IhUimU ! oprrai.og on a msjority ot the Legislature, the whole have been authoriied, and the State* plunged Into heavy debts To an extent *o ruinous baa this ayateiu of legislation bui'n carried in some portions of the i Union, that the people have found It neoeaaary to their own salVty and prosperity, to forbid their lerislatnrea, by constitutional t-k rlctions, to oontraot publio debt* fbr suoh purposes without their Immediate content. If the abuse of power has been ao fatal In the StntM where the syitems of taxation are direct, and the rep re ant a tivafl ?a>ar\>\?iai 1.1m at ; constituents. bow much grr Bier dauger of abuse if to fcn i apprehended In tbe general government, whoee revanu** ; at - raised by Indirect taxation, >n d whusa functionaries are responsible to tha people in larger inami, and lot longtr terms? Regarding onlj objeota of improvement, of the nn, ture of tboe* embraced in tbli bill, how inexhaustible we sballftndthsin. Let the imagination run klong our coast, from tha rlv*r Ht Croix to tbe Rio Oranda, and traee every river emptying luto tbe Atlantic and Gulf | of Mexico, to lta source, let It coast along our lakM and ascend all their tributaries; let It pass to Orafon, and i explore all its bays. Inlets, and streams, and than let it raise tbe curtain of tbe future and contemplate tbe *&I tent of this republic, and tha object* of Improvement It will embrace, a* It advances to Its high destiny, nnd Iks ' mind will be startled at the Immensity and danger of the power whieh tbe jirinclpl* of this bill Involves. Already our confederacy consists of twenty-nine | States. Other Mtates may, at no distant period, ba expected ta be formed on tbe west of our present settlements We own an extensive country In Oregon, stretching many hundreds af miles, from ea*t to we**, and seven degrees of latitude from south to north. Bt the admission of Texas into tba Union, we have reoentI ly added many hundreds of mile* to our sea ooast. la I all tbis vast oouutry, bordering on th* Ailantl* and racitlc, there are many thousnnd* of bay*, inlet* aa< rivers, equally entitled to appropriation* for their Im1 provement, with the object* embraced in this bill. We have seen in our Mtates, that the Interact* of Individuals or neighborhoods, combining against tha general interest, have Involved their government* in dab* and bankruptcy; and when the system prevailed in th* general government, and was checked by rresident Jackson, It had begun to ba considered th* higbeat merit in a member of Congress to be able to procure appropriation* ef public money to be expended within bin itlktrtflt nr Mtftta whati/i**?r ml,hf Ka til* ntilaflt Ws should b? blind to th? experience of the past, If we 414 1 not see abundant evidence that if lb la system of mmi dltur? in to be Indulged to. combination of tadiYtaual and of local interesta will bo found strong enough to control legislation. absorb tbe ntniuM of the oountry, and plunge tbo government Into a hopeless lndehtadnui What In dent minuted a harbor by this system, does ; not necessarily mean a bay, inlet, or arm of tbo in, on i tbe ocean or on our lake snore*, on tbe margin of which may exist a commercial city or town engaged In foreign or dmneitlo trade; but It la made to embrace tbe water* where these 1* not only do such olty or town, butao commerce of any kind. 11 y it a bay or (beet of aboal I water la called a harbor, and appropriation* demanded i (ton Congress to deepen It, with a view to draw commerce to it, or to enable Individual* to build up a towo or city on it? margin upon speculation, and for their own private advantage What is denominated a river, which may be Improved In tbe system, Is equally undefined in 1U meaning It may be I be Mississippi. or it may be the smallest and most obscure and unimportant Hream bearing the nana of river, wbloh Is to be found in any State in tbo I'nlon. Such a system Is subjeot, moreover, to be perverted to tbe accomplishment of the worst of polities! purpose* During tbe few years It waa in lull operation, and wbloh immediately preceded th? veto of President Jackson Of the Maystille road bill, Instaneea were numerous of pub lie men seeking to gain popular favor by holding out to the people interested In particular localities the premise 1 of large dlabursements of public money Numerous re conrolssanees and surveys were madoauring that period tor roads and canala through many parta of the Union, and tbe people in the vicinity of each were led to believe that their property would be enhanced In value. an4 they themselves be enriched, by the large ex pen <11 tare* which they were promised by tbe advocates of the system should be made from the federal treasury in their neighborhood Whole section* of the oountry were thus sought ta be Influenced, and tbe system waa fast becomIng one not only of profuse and wasteful expenditure, but a potent political nglar If the powf r to Improve a harbor be admitted H is not vi/ |'ricif|tp uvw in" |?>w? uvrjivn ttti?* let on the oocmi or the iak?*. nod inaka harbora ?hfr<* lhare ar? nonr, oan ba denied If Uie power to ' nlean out or deepen Ihe ?'h?rn?l? of river*, near their niauth* ho a lmitl?d, It I* not niij to parralva bow tbo power to Improve th?m to iU?ir fountain head and make tbam navigable to the|i aouroa* '?o b? denied.
