MACKJNDER. Norf.dk, V a. Sflth Jane, 1833. 20 15 10 3 2 1 9 3 5 PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. (continued from our last.) In conformity with principles hereto fore explained, and with the hope of re ducing the General Government 10 that simple machine which the Constitution created, and of withdrawing from the States all other influence than that of its universal beneficence in preserving peace, affording an uniform currency, maintain ing the inviolability of contracts, diffusing intelligence, and "discharging unfelt its other superintending functions, I recom mend that provision be made to dispose of all stocks now held by it in corpora tions, whether created by the General or State Governments, ami placing the pro ceeds in the Treasury. As a source of profit, th ese stocks art! of little or no va lue: as a means of influence among the Slates, they are adverse to the purity of our institutions. The whole principle on which they are based, is deemed by ma ny unconstitutional, and to persist m the policy which they indicate is considered wholly inexpedent. It is my duty to acquaint you with an arrangement mnde by the ISank of the United States w ith a portion of the hold ers of the 3 per cent, stock, by which the Government will be deprived of the use of the public funds longer than was anti cipated. By t,is arrangement, which will be particularly explained by the Se cretary of the Treasury, a surrender of the certificates of this stock may be post poned until October, 1333; nud thus the liability of the Government, after its abi lity to discharge the debt, may be conti nued by the failure of the Bank to per form its duties. Such measures as are within the reach of the Secretary of the Treasury have been taken to enable him to judge whe ther the public deposits in that institu tion may be regarded as entirely safe; but as his limited power may prove inade quate to this object, I recommend the subject to the attention of Congress un der the belief that it is worthy of iheir serious investigation. An inquiry into the transactions of the institution, embra cing the branches as well as the orincionl Bank, seems called for by the credit which is given throughout the country to many serious charges impeaching its cha racter, and which, if true, may justly ex cite the apprehension that it is no longer 0 safe depository of the money of the people. Among the interests which merit the consideration of Congress, after the pay ment of the -public debt, one of the most important in my view is that of the Pub lic Lands. Previous to 4he formation of our present Constitution, it was recom mended by Congress, that a portion of tiie waste lands owned by the States should be ceded to the United States, for the purposes of general harmony, and as a fund to meet the expenses of the war. The recommendation was adopted, and at different periods of time the States of IWassnchusetts, New York, Virginia, North and South Carolina and Georgia, granted their vacant soil for the uses for which they had been asked. As the lands may now be considered as relieved from this pledge, the object for which they were ceded having been accomplish ed, it is in the discretion of Congress to dispose of them in -.such way us best to are the cultivators of the soil. Indepen dent farmers are every where the baaia of society and true friends of liberty. Jn addition to these considerations, questions have already arisen and be ex pected hereafter to grow out of the pub lic lands, which involve the rights of the new States and the powers of the Gene ral Government; and unless a liberal po licy be now adopted, there is danger that these questions may speedily assume aa importance not now generally anticipa ted. The influence of a great sectional interest, when brought into full action, will be found more dangerous to the har mony and union of the States than any other cause of discontent; and it is tho p'trt of wisdom and sound policy to fore see its approaches and endeavor if pos sible to counteract them. Of the various schemes which have) been hitherto proposed in regard to the disposal of the public lauds, none havo yet received the approbation of the Na tional Legislature. Deeply impressed with the importance of a speedy and. sat isfactory arrangement of the subject, I deem it my duty on this occasion to urge it upon your consideration, and,- to tiie propositions which have been heretofore suggested by others, to contribute those reflections which have occurred to me, in the hope that they may assist you iu your future deliberations. It seems 10 me to be our true policy thai the public lands shall cease as soon as practicable to bo a source of revenue, and that they be sold to settlers in limited parcels at a price bir.dy sufficient to re imburse to the Uni ed States the expenso of the present system, and the cost aris ing under our Indian compacts. The adr vantages of accurate surveys and un doubted titles, now secured to purcha sers, seem to fotbid the abolition of the present system, because none cun be sub stituted which will more peifectly accom plish these important ends. It is desira ble, however, that in convenient ime this machinery be withdrawn from the States, and that the right of soil and the future disposition of it be surrendered to the States respectively in which it lies. The adventurous and hardy population of the West, besides contributing their equal share of taxation under our impost system, have iu ihe progress of our Gov ernment, for the lauds they occupy, paid into the Treasury n large proportion of forty millions of dollars, and of the reve nue received therefrom, but a small part has been expended amongst them. When, to the disadvantage of their situ ation in this respect, we add tho consid eration that it is their labor alone which; gives real value to the lands, and that the proceeds arising from their sale are dis tributed chiefly among the States which had not originally any claim to them, and which have enjoyed the undivided emolu ment arising from the sale of their own lands, it cannot be expected.that the new States w ill remain longer contented with the present policy after the payment of the public debt. To avert the conse quences which may be aprpehended from this cause, to put an end forever to all partial and interested legislation on the subjectand to afford to every American citizen of enterprise, the opportunity of securing an independent freehold, it seeraa to me, therefore, best to abandon the idea of raising a future revenue out of the pub lic lands. In my former messages I have expres sed my conviction, that the Constitution conduce to the nuht. liMmu.nv mrt nnn ... : ...... 6,.- . r . eral interest ot the American neon e.

As there never will occur a period, perhaps, more examining this question, all local and sec tional teeltngs should be discarded, and the whole United Slates regarded as one people, interested alike in the prosperity of their common country. It cannot be doubted that the speedy settlement of these lands constitutes the true interest of the republic. The wealth and strength of a country are its popula tion, and the best part of that population
