organized a power which has for its purpose an

the Government were at this time consid
ered so alarming and enormous that a com.
fnittee of retrenchment was' raised in the
House, in 1828, consisting of seven meni
bers, five of whom were the fnendsof Gen.
Jackson, to consider and report upon the
subject.' I ne.resull of their investigation
was, that the expenditures were unneceasa.
rily great, and ought to be reduced; that
tlie officers of the Government were too nu
merous; the expenses or Congress; too
heavy, and tlie sessions too long ; that these
should be reduced by making the compen
satjon of the members, during the first ses
sion of each Congress, two dollars) per diem
and that this was all that could be done un.
til the friends of reform should be put in the
possession of power. These reports were
published in great numbers by the two.
Houses, at the public expense, and ind
triously spread over every habitable portion
of the Union. Members assiduously em
ployed themselves in .franking these and
other party slanders, prepared by tlie Cen
tral Committee of the District of Columbia
and transmitting them to all . who would
read. For this duty many of them- were
afterwards rewarded with office. In the
Senate, Mr. Benton, chairman of the com
mittee already mentioned , reported, in
1820, several bills, among which were one
toTegulate the publication of (he laws of
the United states and of public advertise,
ments, by which the selection was to be
made by the Senators and Representatives
from each State, and the delegates, from
the Territories; and one to secure in offi
ce faithful collectors, dec., which provided,
among other things, that mil nominations
made by the President to fill vacancies oc
casioned by removal should be accompa
nied by a statement of the reasons for
which the officer bad bert removed. As
soon, however, as the Jackson TSTrty came

was allowed to subsidize or "control tlie

which had succeeded ; and when the oppo
sition requested to know the reasons of the
wanton and unprecedented removals of
meritorious officers'! from public employ,
ment by President Jackson , his supporters
were filled with i ndignntion at the insolence
of such a request, and declared thafthe Ex
Ilamil-jofCongress, and 'that-if he were guiltxpr
any uuenieanor jCtlie xonstitutionalaad
only remedy was impeachment.
As an illustration of the contrast present
ed between the prbmises and perforrnances
of the party which subsequently succeeded
in acquiring the control of the Government ,
it may be proper togive here a lew indis
putable facts. Tlie number of publishers
of the laws was increased from 82, to 110,
and all, as far as practicable, supportera of
the Administration; the appointments of
members oi Congress were greater tlian
those of all preceding Adminwt rations to
gether; the number of custom house officers
which had been complained of by tho com.
inittee of the Senate in 1 820 , had increased
from 174 to 414, and the compensation
from 119,062 39 to $109,669 32, in ad.
dition to which they wero allowed in New
York, in 1828, upwards of $53,000. -The
expenses of collecting the revenue of the
United States had increased from $889,.
327 in 1828 the last year of the Adminis.'
tration of Mr. Adams, to $1,414,528 in
1836, the last year of the Administration of
President Jackson, being an average annual
increase of upwards of $75,000, with a
diminution rather than a corresponding in
crease in the business of the, custom-house
department, and the whole annual expendi
tures of tho Government had increased in
a A w years from $12,163,438 to upwards
of $26', 000,000.
The clamor set up about retrenchment
and reform, was nothing more than mere
party along, and only used for party pur.
poses. It had no reality, and was not in
tended to be carried out. Tho object of the
opponents of President Adams was the de
struction of his administration at all haz
ards, and by the employment of every
means within their power. . The opposi
tion was directed not against the impolicy
or oppression of measures or the- vice and
incompetency of men, but, as was" observed
on the floor of the House, by an eloquent
member from Baltimore, 'f It was a pre
meditated, forea vowed hostility to each and
every adherent of the Administration, and
to each and every measure it should pro
pose,"' and it was openly and profanely
declared that the Administration should be
assailed and destroyed though it were " as
pure a the nngels "artheTight-hand of
God.$ This was accomplished, and the
events and measures which have been at
tempted to be sketched in the following
pages will show tne evils which have reH
suited from too easy and implicit a belief
on the part of the People in the hollow pro
fessions and deceptive declarations of reck,
less politicians and. demagogues .whose
great aim was the acquisition of power, the
gratification of ambition, or the emolu
ments of office, without much regard to tbe
interests of their country, or the happi
nessand welfare of their fellow-citizens.
