"5. nt u heavy loss, tlic purposes of husi jicss. With each succeeding day the nmtallic currency decreases ; by sonic it is hoarded in the natural four, that once parted with, it cannot ho replaced , while by others it is diverted from more legiliuinto uses, for the sake of gain. Should Congress sanction this condition of things, by making irredeem able paper money receivable in payment of public dues, a temporary check to a wise and salutary policy will, in all prob ability, bo converted into its absolute destruction. his tiuo that bank notes actually convertible into specie may be received in payment of the revenue, without be ing liable to all those objections, and that such a course may, to some extent promote individual convenience ; an ob ject always to be considered where it docs not conllict with the principles of our Government, or tno general weltare of the country. If such notes only were received, always under circumstances allowing their eaily presentation for pay ment, and if, at short and fixed pciiods, thev were converted into specie, to be Kept by tbe officers of the Treasury, some oflhc most serious obstacles to their reception would perhaps bo. re moved. To retain the notes in the Treasury would be to renew, under an otber form, the loans of public money to the banks, and the evils consequent thereon. It is, however, a mistaken impression that any large amount of specie is re quired for public payments. Of the se venty or eighty millions now estimated to be in the country, ten millions would be abundantly sufficient for that pin pose, nroVulcd an accumulation of a largo a- lnount of revenue, beyond tbe necessary wants of the (iovornmeut, be hereafter ! prevented. If to these considerations be added the facilities which will arise from enabling the Treasury to satisfy the public creditors, by its drafts or notes received in payment of the public dues, it may bo safely assumed that no motive of convenience to the citizen re quires the reception of bank paper. To say that the refusal of paper mon ey by the Government, introduces an unjust discrimination between the cur rency received by it and that used by individuals in their ordinary affairs, is, in my judgement, to view it in a very erroneous light. The Constitution pro hibits the Slates from making any thing but gold and silver a tender in the pay ment of debts, and thus secures to every citizen a right to demand payment in (ho legal currency. To provide by law that the Government will only receive its dues in gold and silver, is not to con fer on it any peculiar privilege; I ut merely to place it on an equality with the citizen, by reserving to it a right secured to him by the Constitution. It ig doubtless for this reason that the prin ciple has been sanctioned by successive laws, from the time of the first Congress under the Constitution down to the last. Such precedents, never objected to and proceeding from such sources, afford a decisive answer to the imputation ot in equality or injustice. But, in fact, the measure is one of restriction, notofiavor. To forbid the public agent to leceive in payment any other than a certain kind of money, is to refuse him a discretion possessed by every citizen. It may lie left to tho who have the management of their own transactions, to make their own term hut no such discretion should he given to him who acts merely as an agent of the people, who is to collect what the law lequires, and to pay tho appropria uons it manes. unennniiK notes are redeemed on demand there is then no discrimination in reality, for the individ ual who receives them may, at his option .substitute the specie for them, he takes them from convenience or choice. When they arc not so redeemed, it will scarcely bo contended that their receipt and payment, by a public officer, should be permitted, though none deny that right to an individual ; if it were, the ef fect would bo most iujnrous to the pub lic; since their officer could make none of those arrangements to meet or guard against the depreciation, which an indi vidual is at liberty to do. Nor can in convenience to tho community be alleg ed as an objection to such a regulation. Its object and motive are their conven ience and welfare. If, at a moment of simultaneous and unexpected suspension by the banks, it adds something to the many embarrass ments of that proceeding, yet these are far overbalanced by its direct tendency to produce a wider circulation of gold and silver, to increase the safety of bank paper, to improve the general currency and thus to prevent altogi ther such oc currences, and the other and far greater evils that attend them. It may, indeed, bo quostioncd, wheth er it is not for the interest of the banks themselves that the Government should not receive their paper. They would be conducted with morn caution, and on sounder principles. JJy using specie only in its transactions, the Government would create a demand for it. which would, to a great extent, prevent its ex portation and by keeping it in circulation maintain broader and safer basis for Ulio paper currency. That the banks would thus be rendered more sound, and the community uioro safe, cannot ad mit of a doubt. Tho foregoing views, it seems to mo, do but fairly carry out the provisions of inc reuerai Constitution in relation to the currency, as far as relates to the pub lic lcvcuuc. At the time that instrument was framed, there were but three or four banks in the United States; and had the extension of the banking system, eV, the evils growing out of it, been fore seen, they would probably have been spe cially guarded against. The same poli cy which led to the prohibition of bills of credit by tho States, would, doubt less, in that event, have also interdicted their issue as a currency in any other lorm. The Constitution, however, con tains no such prohibition; and since the Stales have exercised, for nearly half a century, the power to regulate the busi ness of banking, it is not to bo expect ed that it will be abandoned. The whole matter is now under discussion before the proper tribunal the people of the States. Never before has the public mind been so thoroughly awakened to a proper sense of its importance; never lias the subject in all its bearings, been submitted to so searching an inquiry, h would be distrusting the intelligence and virtue of the people to doubt the speedy and efficient adoption of such measures of reform as the public good demands. All that can rightfully be done by the Federal Government to promote tbe ac complishment of that important object, will, without doubt, be performed. In the mean time, it is our duty to pro vide all the remedies against a depreci ated paper currency which the Constitu tion enables us to aflbrd. The Treasu ry Department, on several former occa sions, has suggested the propriety and importance ot aunilorm law concerning bankruptcies of corporations, and others Through the instrumentality of such a iw, a salutary cnecu may (louotiess no imposed on the issues of paper money ind an ellecttial remedy given to the ci tizen in a way at once equal in all parts of the Union, and fully authorized by the Constitution. The indulgence granted by Executive authority in the payment of bonds for luties, has been already mentioned. Seeing that the immediate enforcement of these obligations would subject a largo and bigbly respectable portion of our citizens to great sacrifices, and be licviii'r that a temporary postponement could be made without detriment tooth er interests, and with increased certain ty of ultimate payment, I did not hesi tate to comply with the request that was made of me. I he terms already are, to the full extent, as liberal as anv that arc to be found in the practice of the Exe cutive Department. It remains for Con gress to decide whether a lurther post. ponenient may not with propriety be al lowed, and, if so, their legislation upon the subject is respectfully iuvi'ed. 1 he report ol the Secretary of the Treasury will exhibit the .condition of these debts ; the extent and effect of tho present indulgence ; the probable result of its further extension on the state of tho Treasury and every other fact ne cessary to a full consideration of the subject. Similar information is commu nicated in regard to such depositories of the public moneys as are indebted to the Government, in order that Congress may also adopt the proper measures in regard to them. The receipts and expenditures for the first half of the year, and an estimate of those for the residue, will be laid belorc you by the Secretary of the Treasury. In his report of December last, it was estimated that the cm rent .'receipts would tall short of the expenditures by about three millions of dollars. It will be seen that the difference will be much greater. This is to be attributed not only to the occurrence of greater pecu niary embarrassment in the business ol the country than those which were then predicted, and, consequently, a greater diminution in the revenue, but also to the fact that the appropriations exceed ed, by nearly six millions, the amount which was asked for in the estimates then submitted. The sum necessary for the service of tho year beyond the pro bable receipts, ami the amount which it was intended should be reserved in the j Treasury at the commencement of the year, will bo about six millions. If the whole of the reserved balance bo not at once applied to the current expenditures but four millions be still kept in the Treasury, as seems most expedient, for uie uses oi t tic mini, ami to meet con tingencies, the sum needed will be ten millions. It is not proponed to procure the required amount liy loam or mcrem-ed taxation. There lire now in thu Treasury nine mil. ons three hundred mid sixty seven thou suiiil two hundred dollars, directed by the net of the 123d of Juno, III3G, In he du posited with the States in October next, Tlu t-iiiu, if ho deposited, will be subject, under the law, to be recalled, if needed, to defray cxlr-tmy appropriations; mid as it is now evident llint the whole, or the prin. cipnl part of it, will ba wanted for that purpose, it appears most proper that the doposito should bo withheld. Until the illinium can be collected from the bank, Treasury notes may be temporarily issued, to be gradually redeemed us ii h received. The preceding suggestions and recom mendations are submitted, in tho belie! that their adoption by Congress will en able tho Executive Department to con duct our fiscal concerns with success, so far as their management has been committed to it. Whilst tho objects and tho means proposed to attain them are within its Constitutional powers ami ap propriato duties, they will at the same ttmo, it is hoped by their necessary op oration, afford essential aid in tho trail yield relief to the people at large in n form adopted to the nature of our gov ernment. J hose who look to the action 'SATURDAY of this government for specific aid to the citizen, to relieve, embarrassments mi sing from losses by revulsions in com merce and credit, lose sight of the ends for which it was created, anil the pow ers with which it is clothed. It was es tablished to give security to us all, in our lawful anil honorable pursuits under the lasting safeguard of republican in stitutions. It was not intended to con fer special favors on individuals, or on any classes of them ; to create systems of agriculture, manufactures, or trade; or to engage in them, either separately MOItNINd, SEt'TEMIil'.li 0. cm t r i : n i i : n o o u .n t y.

In l his town llie "contested election" has never be sitccesslul. All communities are apt to look to Government for too much. Even in our own country, where its powers and duties arc so strictly lim ited, we are prone to do so, especially at periods of sudden embarrassments and distress. Hut this ought not to bo. The framers of our excellent Constitution, and the people who approved it with calm and sagacious deliberation acted at the time on a sounder principle. They wisely judged that the less Government interferes with private pursuits, the bet ter for the general prosperity. It is not its legitimate object to make men rich, or to repair, by direct grants of money or legislation in favor of particular pur suits, losses not incurred in the public service. This would be substantially to use the property of some for the benefit of others. JJtil its real duty that duty, the performance of which makes a good government tho most precious of human blessings is to enact and enforce a sys tem of general laws commensurate with, but not exceeding the objects of its es tablishment ; and to leave every citizen and every interest to reap, under its be nign protection, the rewards of virtue, industry, and prudence. 1 cannot doubt that on this, as on all similar occasions, me lodcral govern ment will find its agency most conducive to the security and happiness of the peo ple, when limited to the exercise of its conceded powers. Jn never assuming even for a well meant object, such pow ers as were not designed to bo conferred upon it, we shall in reality do most for the general welfare. To avoid every unnecessary interference with the pur suits ot the citizen, will result in more benefit than to adopt measures which could only assist limited interests, and arc eagerly, but perhaps naturally,souglit for under the pressere ol temporary cir cuiiistanr.es. If, therefore, I refrain from suggesting to Congress my specific plan for regulating the exchanges of the country ; relieving mercantile cmbar rassments: or interfering with the ordi nary operations of foreign or domestic commerce ; it is from a conviction that such measures arc not within the con stitutional province of the General Gov ernment, and that their adoption would not promote the real and permanent wel faro of those they might be designed to aid. The difficulties and distresses of the times, though unquestionably great, are limited in tlicir extent, and cannot be regarded as affecting the permanent prosperity ol the nation. A using great degree, from the transactions of foreign and domestic commerce, it is upon them that they have chiefly fallen The great agricultural interest has, in many parts ol the country, sintered com paratively little ; and, as if Providence intended to display the munificence of its goodness at the moment of our great est need, and in direct contrast to the evils occasioned by the waywardness of man, we have been blessed throughout our extended territory with a season of general health and of uncommon fruit fulness. The proceeds of our great sta ples will soon furnish the means of liqui dating debts at boino and abroad; and con ributiiijr equally to tho ruvival of commercial activity and llie restoration of commercial credit. 1 deeply regret that events have occurred which reipiiru mc to ask your consideration ofoucli serious topics. I could have wished that, in making toy lust communication to the assembled represutntiven of my country, J had nothing lo dwell upon but her unalloyed prosperity, hincu it is otherwise, wo can only li-el more deeply the responsibility of the res pectivo trusts that have been confided to us, and under llie pressure of difficulties uuitu in invoking tho' aid of the Supremo lluler of nations, nnd in laboring with zealous resolu tion to overcomu the diificullics by which we are environed. 1'oi.k was eleclcd Speaker on tho first bal lot, by a majority of eight votes.
