of dollars altogether.
" So far a3 the holders of these two hundred

exclusive rights and privileges on individuals,
and cslablishing a money-dealing monopoly,
irrevocable for twenty years. Where is the
power of doing this, to be found in the Consti

ive This double-dealing Bank charter, ap
pears to rac, a manifest fraud on the Constitu
tion, which the acuterbut honest intellect of the
1 Chairman of ihe Committe will feel reluctant
J jto defend. Even if it wfero conceded to him,
that a corporation might be set up as a means
to an end as the incidental power necessary
, and proper to carry into effect the enumerated
ppwer -still he must, on his part, concede also,
that the means and the end must be coextensive ;
the means must not extend beyond the purpo
ses for wmchjthcy arc adopted. A Bank may
idistributcftinds of the treasury ; but is it neces
sary and proper that for this purpose they
should deal; in bills of exchange ; or lend money
on lands ; or on pledges; or -hold estates in
mortmain ; or supersede the law3 of escheat; or
fct aside the execution, laws of particular States;
or protect the property of the shareholders from
J 'State taxation; or force their branch banks into
States who object to their introduction? Nor
is it necessary that they should be invested with
the enoimous and alarming power of crushing
at any moment any State bank in existence.
A tyrant- may use despotic power mildly, but
that docs not take away from his power, the in
jherent despotism that characterizes it."
" Agaiiui Whatever incidental meaisare em
ployed by Congress as necessary to carry into
execution an express power, ; they -Vmfst refer
in the act of Congress to the power in whose
aid they arc employed ; they must be placed al
so under the superintendance of a person or
persons paid by, and subject; to the control of
; the United States ; removable, if it should be
j necessary to remove; and the means themselves,
should be within the power of the legislature
at any time to annual, to modify or to change,
-as the public interest may require. Else, what
may seem at first necessary and proper, may
continued when it is unnecessary and impro
per. Every requisite thus necessary, has been
abandoned in the Bank charter. It has no re-
nrenee to anv nowers it is emolovcd to exeJ
nite: it is in no resncct under the control of
the Government, but of the stockholders: it is
riot a Government corporation acting for the
public interest, so much as it is a private cor-
poration, acting for the private interest of the
shareholders, of whom the Government of: the
'United States constitutes in power and in inter
est but one-fifth part ; and can be at any time
controlled and overruled' by the majority of
ibnr-fifths." J : s

stitute the power ojappdintment Xo others, or
deleo-ate to others 'the right of legislating fur
O . V- luf
the public in this or any respect ; nor can they
legislate jointly with another body. I he Su
preme Court in Wayman and Clerk v. Southard
and Starr have decided that the legislature can
not delegate its authority to legislate to any
other person. This is not merely an execu
tive appointment., Ihe power of the agent
must be defined by Congress, and his mode of
agency prescribed. Congress cannot give him
carte -blanche , absolute discretionary power to
act as he may thing fit, not only for the public
interest, but for his-Own also. But, this is an
objectionable power yielded to the United
(States' Bank; Congress has no control over the
stockholders, who may, as they do,: employ
their corporation privileges for their own emol
ument to the utmost extent of Bank prudence,
if not beyond it. The charter is a charter of
private monopoly, wherein our Government
officers are merely shareholders, and bound by
the doings of the bank directors, who are, in
fact, the standing legislators of the cojporation.
No declaration of the express powers contem
plated, is made in that charter ; no mode is pre
scribed of executing them specifically by these
incidental agents ; provided they are somehow
executed, no further questions arise. The
Bank officers are the officers of the private cor
poration, not of Government ; they are amena
ble to the stockholders, not to Government.
Congress erects a private speculating corpora
tion for the benefit of the shareholders, and
then makes a contract with them to transact
certain public business, on condition of their
permitting Government to become shareholders
also ; a contract irrevocable for twenty years !
If this be, what may not be, ' o istitutional ?
j "Again. The stockholders of the Bank of
tpe United States are a variable and fluctuating
body. Seven millions or seventy thousand
shares are held, it is said, by aliens and foreign
ers ; many of them from among the English
nobility. We have no objection to foreigners
vesting their surplus money in our institutions
unless under particular circumstances. That
seven millions may become fourteen. The di
rectors are chosen by the stockholders. Let
us suppose that Government here wants money,
to provide against an expected quarrel with
Great-Britain. The directors are to determine
whether the Bank shalJ advance it or not.
The directors are the agents of foreign as well
as domestic stockholders; who does not see
the possible danger of this case? Is this neces
sary and proper ?"
"Again. One of the great objects of the
Bank, it seems, was to substitute a sound for
an unsound currency. We verily believe it has
done so; thanks to the'much-opposed energy
of Mr. Cheves. But in the report of the Com
mittee of the House of Representatives, from
the power given to Congress " to coin money and
fix the value thereof," is strangely, deduced (p. (i)
the power of regulating the whole currency of
the United States, paper as well as coin ! This
is inferring quidlibet ex quolibet, wi
th a ven-
"Is there one man of common-sense, from
Maine to Louisiana, (the Committee excepted)
who really believes that a coined dollar, or an
eagle of actual silver and gold, are one and the
same thing with a piece of stamped paper?
Or that the Convention, with the Bank of Eng
land within their purview, and with the cxperU
ence of the Bank of North-America in artnal
operation since May, 1781, did not know the
diflerencc between com and bank nancr? If
this utter perversion of the use of language, is
one of the chapters in the science of implication
and construction, we know not to what nan.
dox it will not extend;!"
44 About the year 181 1 or 1815 (we Quote
from memory) a debate arose in the British
House of Commons, as to the exorbitant char-
ges of the Bank of England, and the unfair and
selhsh advantages taken by that institution in
Mts dealings with Government. On that occa-
sion Mr. Grenfell threw out a threat, that if
some more decided evidences of fair dealing
money might not also subjected to governmen-
p" reguiauon. Uut he did not venture upon
any thing more explicit than this dubious sug-
44 What are we to think of a cause that re-
a wnereon io build, up Bank
corporations, let Mr. McDuffie shew us, whv
ine sauje rcasomng irom aumonty will not ap
ply to the protecting system. We fear
will be a task not easy to be accomplished even
by that gentleman's acknowledged ingenuity."
Coin is currency ; paper is currency ; there-
fore paper is coin."
" A water-mellon is food ; a roasted fowl is
L- j i. r 4a ri
lood ; therefore a roasted fowl is a water-mel-
on-- - .
44 There would be nothing ludicrous in this
mode of putting the argument, if there was no-
thing ludicrous in the argument itself."
"It is in this way that the public are to be
persuaded that Congress possesses thecontitii-
tional pdwer of making, the notes of a private
banking company, the current money of the na
tion. If thev can do this for one private com
pany, they may do it for another; for Stephen
Girard s notes for instance. The doctrine of
implication and construction is boundless; it
may make any thing mean any thing, even
though contradictory; thus, the power jof regu
lating commerce nas been held by the manu
facturing Committees of 1824 and 1828 to mean
the power of annihilating commerce, which es
sentially depends on introducing cheap articles
ot toreign production in return for the export
of cheap articles of our own production; a bar
ter which the tariff of protection is avowedly
instituted to annihilate."
" The Bank of the United States appears,
then, liable to the following brief summary of
"It is not included in any of the express or
enumerated powers granted to Congress by the
Constitution. It misrht have been, had the
Convention seen fit."
" A Bank was proposed, discussed, and reject
ed in the Convention ; and so obnoxious was it
considered among the States, that it was urged
in the debate, that the reception of the Consti
tution among the people would be endangered
by adopting such a measure.
" The power of emitting bills of credit, such
as the Dromissorv notes of the Bank of the
United States now are, was proposed to be giv
en to Congress, and was rejected in the Con
vention, nine to two.
"No currency is noticed in the Constitution
but a metallic currency of coined money ; and as
that is established and no other, every other,
however useful or convenient, was of course
excluded. But the Convention must have been
aware of, and considered a Bank paper curren
cy, as the Bank of England was known to them,
and the Bank of North-America had been in
operation since 1781."
"The Bank of the United States is a corpo
ration with exclusive privileges; it is not a pub
lic, but a private corporation ; consisting of such
persons as may become subscribers, their as
signees and successors, (Bank charter, sec. 7.)
The Federal Government is a subscriber to
the amount of seven millions out of thirty-five
milions of dollars, and elects directors in pro
portion to its stock. It may be said that this
is, in part, a public, and in part a private corpo
ration. Let it be so. In the Convention, the
power of incorporating was proposed to be gi
ven to Congress generally, and negatived."
"It was proposed to be given in cases where
the particular States had not the power, which
might, nevertheless, be exercised for the public
"It was proposed to grant the power of in
corporating, specially, for roads and canals;
"It was proposed three times to incorporate
an University ; negatived."
"To establish-post and military roads ; nega
tived." " To establish seminaries for the promotion
of literature, arts, and sciences; negatived."
" The same for the promotion of agriculture,
trade, commerce & manufacturers; negatived."
" So that in whatever possible form the pow
er of incorporating could be proposed, it was
steadily rejected by the Convention. The
power of direct incorporation having been thus
repeatedly refused to the General Government,
can ey assume it by indirect mr-ans by un
to: e en, unsuspected construction V
"it is assumed as an indirect means, neces
sary and proper to carry into effect the follow
ing enumerated powers, viz: To collect taxes,
duties, imposts and excises; to borrow money
on the credit of the United States; to coin mo
"Every writtcn'act made in pursuance of a
power, should recite in substance the power
that authorizes it. In the Bank charter, there
is no statement of the express or enumerated
power which it is established to execute; no
mode and manner of executing it specifically
pointed out and prescribed ; no power of remo
val, dismissal, change, or alteration is reserved
to Government, if any such should be needed ;
no directing control, excepting in the propor
tion of one-fifth; four-fifths belonging to the
stockholders. Moreover, several minor inci
dental privileges are attached to that Bank,
which the Constitution will by no means justify;
such as to hold lands in mortmain; to enable
aliens to hold lands ; to change the course of
descent into succession both as to lands and
chatties ; to exempt lands from forfeiture and
escheat; to prohibit the right6f taxation by the
"Against this unanswerable list of usurpa
tions, the advocates of the Bank insist on its
great financial utility to the Government and to
the nation. We are not inclined to deny that
it has greatly contributed to restore specie pay
ments, and to introduce a reasonable approxi
mation to an uniform currency, much better and
sooner at least, than we had any prospect of
these results without the Bank."
" Let all this be admitted then for the present ;
and iet the people be asked the question, are
these results compensation sufficient for the
utter destruction of your Constitution for set
ting it absolutely at nought and usurping, in
defiance of it, by direct opposition and by inge-
nious construction, powers that tne history oi
the Convention proves, beyond all doubt, were
never meant to be granted? It is well for the
president and directors of: the Bank, to take
that view of the questionJtvhich a bureau ot
brokers and bankers' clerks would aaturalty
take ; but is this a statesman-like view ol it!-
Is it such a one as an American legislator
should adopt? If the Constitution be defective,
take the constitutional mode of amending it ;
but it ought not to be treated by an American
Congress as waste paper, or abandoned, as JMr.
Gallatin abandons it as a vain effort at impossi
THE "ANTI-JACKSON" ADDRESS.
The "Address of the National Republican
Convention to the People of the U. States,"
has at last made its appearance in the Baltimore
Chronicle and the National Intelligencer. It
makes nearlv five columns of the former paper.
Its force does not correspond with the time
which was p-iven in its nrenaration. Its com
position is scarcelv above mediocrity Its sen
'v0!0155 are vei7 little more than the sweepings
of the newspapers.
The authors draw a flattering picture of the
happiness which we are said to have enjoyed
under the last administration. Every thing
prospered Agriculture, Manufactures, Com
raercel (Commerce ! notwithstanding it con
trived to close the West India market, and the
Tariff was preying upon our merchants.) "In
a word, the best friends of the country had lit
tle more to wish or hope in regard to our po
litical situation." And yet the great majority
of the people were too blind to see all these
blessings, and too ungrateful to reward the
authors of them. They ungraciously set their
faces against those "American Principles"
which are said to have "become the common
creed of the high-minded and patriotic adher
ents of all the parties." They saw in these
principles nothing but seeds of ruin to the
Constitution, and of discord among the States.
The Address kindly forbears to "enlarge on
lU'mMiK" hv which the chansre in the
administration was accomplished " the reck
less and oerseverincr calumny, which were
constantly poured forth on the best and purest
men." It forgets the odious expeaients wnicn
were employed by the friends of the Colalition
the reckless calumnies, the torgea letters
and coffin-handbills, and the coarse attacks up
on female character.
But "the change was effected," "in form, at
least, (it seems,) in a legal and constitutional
way, however justly offensive the circumstances
that brought it about." 1 hese gentlemen ior
ffet to say, that Gen. Jadkson was elected by
the Electors, and not by an intrigue in Congress,
which was so "justly offensive" to the reople
" When he entered on his office, there was
no disposition in any portion of the people to
commence a premature or factious opposition
to his measures." "Under this combination of
circumstances, it is believed, that had the pub
lie affairs been managed with tolerable prudence
and discretion. General Jackson might have
e-one through his term of official life without
a show of opposition, and have been re-elected,
had he been so inconsistent as to desire it, by a
verv . unanimous vote." These Addressers
count too much upon the public credulity.
They must suppose that its readers are forget
ful of the memorable transactions of those
times. The people have not yet forgotten the
war which Mr. Clay himself proclaimed on the'
There is not a spark of generosity not a gleam
of liberality, through this elaborate address
With all their regret in visiting him with too
severe a censure, there was scarcely ever cen
sure, so severe and so indiscriminate. We
shall not criticise the truth of their statements
we content ourselves with exposing the spiri
in which they aremade. But the momen
they touch the other side of the medal, and give
us the characters of Messrs. Clay and Sergeant,
the nrospect is changed at once. To show the
fulsomeness of their panegyric, Mr. Clay is not
merely cried up as "one of the principal foun
ders and supporters of the American System,"
(for which he is said to be) "entitled to the
warm support of all who desire the prosperity
of the great cause of domestic industry
and internal improvement," but there
is another species of merit allowed to Mr. Clay,
which we had supposed their own modesty or
sense of justice would have forborne to press:
" The singular success withwhich he con
ducted the affairs of the Department of State,
evinces his capacity for the actual business of
administration : while the generous frankness
and captivating warmth of his manners, emi
nently fit him for a station, where in order to be
useful, it is necessary to conciliate the public
favor as well as transact with ability the public
business." If Mr. Clay can furnish no better
evidence of his capacity for civil affairs than his
' signal success' in the State Department, we
suspect he will stand much lower in the scale
of a Statesman, than his distinguished compe
titor, with alibis military qualifications. The
one was a General the other an Orator : The
one fought the other talked But the one has
succeeded as a statesman and the other has
failed And the people will judge between
them. The other merit whidh is ascribed in
this passage to Mr. Clay is as little supported
by. facts. How is Mr. C. "to conciliate the
public favor," when he has already, by pressing
his famous "American System,v and by exten
ding the powers of the Government, scattered
the seeds of discord through the country! and
brought the Union itself almost to the very
verge of dissolution. This single sentence of
the Address is a sufficient specimen of its as
sertions. Rihcmond Enquirer,
The facts connected with the increase of the
population of the United States, are becoming,
among political economists, the data upon
which they found their theories of population
generally. We are indebted for this distinc
tion to our happy exemption from the epidemics
which almost periodically ravage the east of
Europe; and from the dangerous proximity
which a lesser distance would give us tothe
theatre of the destructive wars that, on an
average of the last and present centuries, occur
oh the European continent every fifteen years.
Famine, the other great depopulator of nations,
is here known only by name, so that strangers
as we are to the checks of want and pauperism,
the wonder is not that our population increases
so rapidly, but that, aided by the constant influx
of emigration, our census returns are not even
greater. Such are the gratifying results of free
institutions a thriving, contented, intelligent,
and hardy people satisfied with their own lot,
and nnenvious of that of others.
The following from the London Alfred, an
English newspaper, not over disposed to look
on the bright side of any thing American, is not
devoid of interest. U. S. Telegraph.
Human Fecundity.- In a lecture recently
given at Paris, by the great political economist,
Say, he observed, that the population of the
United States had doubled itself e very one-and-twenty
years, and that if even there had been
no importation whatever of foreign settlers, the
population would have doubled itself in every pe
riod of twenty-one years, and four or Jive
months; so little influence does emigration ex
ercise in respect of the increase of the Ameri
can population. War, amine, and epidemical
iseases,produce but little effect upon the general
mass; and in proof of this fact, it has been mat
ter of close calculation, that Napoleons' wars,
which were long, murderous and imprudent
ven supposing that the waste of French lives
had anuaily amounted to three hundred thou
sand men, would not have prevented the popu
lation of France from reaching fifty-three mil
lions in a space of two-and-twenty years.
