friendly criticism, but from a sincere de-
sirc ,0have my own views on Hie subjects
In reply to your first and last questions,
I send you a copy of a letter recently ad
dressed to several citizens of Elizabeth
Cjty.county, Va. in which you will find
the information you desire.
In answer to your second question, I
send you a statement of my entire course
in the New York convention upon the
suhtect of the e ectivc iranchise. It was

course in the convention upon the s ibject
referred to, and I send it to you ;s smth.
Your remaining question is, whether I
"am in favor of reducing the standard of
Not comprehending precisely the idea
you desire to convey by the term 'the
standard of wages,4 it will be necessary in
order to meet your wishes fully, that 1
should give my general views on this
branch of your inquiry.
The labor of an industrious man is in
my judgment only adequately rewarded,
when his wages, together with the assis-
lance of those membeis cfhis family from
''lute ui uiuar; uiti
whom assistance may reasonably be re
. . y J
ar(' are 'n m' opinion at war as well with
the dictates of humanity, as with a sound
and rational policy. Left to itself, and free!
from the blighting' influence of partial
legislation, monopolies, coogug.u d
wealth, and interested combinations, llrj
compensation of labor will always preset ve
t..is salutary relation. It ,s only wh. n he
natural order ol society is disturbed by one
or other of these causes, that tho vvagos of
labor become inadequate.
ine people ol tho United state may be
ruly denominated a nation of labum's. A
vast proportion of them live by the swiat
of their brow, and the continued esercise
ol a persevering industry. It was with a
proper regard to this condition, that the
system of Government under which they
live was originally devised. It Miouid,
therefore, in my opinion, be always so
administered as to insure to them, as far as
possible, a just and adequate reward for
their exertions, as well as a full enjoyment
of the fruits of their industry.
In the distribution of wealth resulting
from the union of labor and capital, it is
too often the case that an undue proportion
falls to the share of the latter. The discon
tinuance of partial legislation, which I
have always advocated, would be an im
portant step towards correcting this ine
quality. It has been ever my design lo keep these
objects constantly in view. So far from
being in favor of reducing the wages of
labor, oratlemptingto render the services
required disproportionate to the rewards
received, it cannot be unknown lo you
that what is called the ten hour system,
originally devised by the mechanics and
laborers themselves, has, by my direction,
been adopted, and uniformly carried out
at all the public establishments, and that
this mitigation of labor has been aceompa
nieu oy no corresponding reduction
1 also caused it to be distinctly intima
ted in the month of March last, to the olfi
ters of such of these establishments a:
might contemplate a reduction of wages,
that in my opinion the pre?cnt peculiarly
uncertain state of things which it is be
lieved results from circumstances that
cannot be permanent in their operation,
does not present a just and proper basis
lor a reduction of wages.
1 am far from wishipg to contribute in
the slightest degree to the embarrassment
and depression of the laboring chssss. It
is. 011 the contrary my
cohstant desire that their industry should
every where, and at all limes, be ampiy
rewarded, and thai the messings pic-mj
should be liberally diffused among those
Who contribute'most to their production.
