successfully prosecuted nnd honorably terminated; and many of
tnose wno partook in the tirst struggle, as well a the second, will
have lived to ee the lat item of'rhe' debt incurred in these neces
sary but expensive conflicts, faithfully and honestly -dincharged ;

courage us to indulge ip a lavish expenditure of the public treasure.
The receipts of the present year do not furnish the test by which
we are' to estimate tho income of the next. Tho changes made in
our revenue svstem by tha Acts of Congress of 183 and IS33,
nnd more especially hy ihe former, have swelled the receipts of the

""they wilt be still more diminished by the reduced ratea of du'ies
which take place, on theirs! of January next, on some of the most

appropriated amount now in the Treasury, will not be modi more
than auificient to meet Ihe expense of the yeHr and pay the smalt

eAouot,, therefore, reconimend to you any alleratiori in tine present
as a necessary consequence,
extort from Congress a renewal uf. ita charter. I am happy to

dutv, I should feel myself called n bv the facts disclosed to order a
tcire arias against the Bank, with a view to put nn end to the
chartered rights it has so pnlitahty violated, were it not I lint the
charter itself will expire as soon iis n decision wvuld probably be
obtained from the court of last resort.
I called the utteution of Congress to this subject in my last nnnu
al message, nnd infurined them that such measures as were within
the reach of the Secretary of the Treasury, had been taken to en

The many distressing accidents which hnve of late occurred in
thnt portion of our navigation carried on by the uso of steam
power, deserve tho immediate and unremitting attention of Ihe coif
stituted authorities of the country. The fact that' the number of

brauch or science, show very clearly thaj,they are in a great degree
the result of criminal negligenco on the part of those by whom Jhs
