practice of Our Government heretofore? Ibeg
leave to recur to another case distinguished in
th htttory of our Government, and . which 1
overlooked at the time I wis remarking on the
various instances of forbearance shown by our
Xjorernment. In the late war, when a large
: majority of "the people of the United States be
lieved the pride of the country to have been
.wounded when the constituted authorities of
the land believed the national honor to have
. been trampled upon by the British Government,
-and considered it the sacred duty of all to assist
them in resenting the insult, we found many on
that occasion, yes, even pending the gloomiest
period of the war, resisting every bill which
went to give the Government of the United
States men and means to prosecute that war
They resisted it on the ground, that peace

Tillages were smoking and ourcountry invaded
vy a large oouy ot hostile troops.
We find at that moment a large body of men
. in Connecticut, whose patriotism I do not call
. in question, far be it from me to do so a pow
erful and talented respectable body of men,
even at the darkest periods of that war, voting
againstgiving men and money to carry on the
war. Great Britain had trampled on our com
mercial rights had insulted us on the high sea3
for six years before war was declared. Not
withstanding all this we found a powerful body
who said that no army or money ought to be
voted to the Government. Now, if that spirit
of forbearance, great as it was, could be shown
lo an enemy whose cry was, Delenda eM Car
thago if 'that spirit couldbe exereised bello fla
grante certainly some little patience is due to
, our bretheren of the south. Surelv some for
bearance ought to be shown to our own coun
trymen. If there were many at. that time who
thought the sword should not be unsheathed
against those who would trample us under foot,
is itto be supposed that we are now to plunge it
into our fellow-citizens without some little
examination into their cause ?
I wish to be distinctly understood on one
point. I do not intend to justify South Caroli

to have justice done her. I do believe, how
ever, that this question maybe settled: and
tuaiuy aciuigiu a spirit oi conciliation a spirit
not only due to her, but the vast portion of the
north and south, the question might be put at
rest. As regards the Union of these States,
there is not a member in the Senate and I trust
I shall not be considered egotistical when I say
that there is not, in the whole Union, one in soul
and heart more dearly devoted to it than mv !

He begged leave to read a short extract from
the speech of Mr. Bayard, a man of eminent
ability a republican, a patriot i and he (Mr.B.)
believed that the sentiment would and ought
to have its weight. It was at a particular period
of the embargo, and the remarks wre made
in the course of a speech on the question ; an!
in reading this, he intended to make no special
reference to that portion of the Union; they
had a right to express what they felt ; he mere
ly referred to it as illustrative of the principles
of our Government. In the course of that een
tleman's remarks on the repeal of the embargo
law, Mr. B. said as follows :
We all know that the opposition to the
embargo, in the eastern Slates, is not the op
position of a political par; v. or of a few dis
contented men, but the resistance of the peo
pie," to a measure which they feel as oppressive
and regar as ruinous. The people of this
country are not to be governed by force, but
bv affection and confidence. It is for ihem we
legislate ; "and if they do not like our laws, it is
our duty to repeal them."
4 If they do not like onr laws, it is our duty
to repeal tnem" so paid he (Mr. B.) It was
right and proper that the other members ui the
Union should respect their feelings ; nay, even
iheir4prejudices. Supposing that oui Govern
ment had pursued a different course ; had stead
i 1 v refused to repeal the embargo law ; and de
termined, in the language of the present day,
to make an experiment to test the strength of
the Union, and that our fellow-citizens of the
east should have been coerced at the point o
the bayonet ; what, in all probability, would
have been the consequence ? He believed thene
would have been blood shed,, and that the con
sequence would have been the dissolution of the
Union ; and that the prospect of a free govern
meiit would have been destroyed : that all the
Slates of the Union would have become sepa
rate governments, and civil war would have re
sulted. 1 he calamitous consequences which
would result from a dismemberment of the con-
federacy, none could doubt. Each of the grea
divisions seeking lo strengthen thernsevles
against the aggression of the other, would
give large powers to their executive authori-1
lies, which would most probably terminate in
the establishment of a military despotism in

.Wednesday, February 13.
Mr. (pLAY said he had on the prece ingday
given notice that he should ask leave to offer to
the consideration of the Senate a bill to modifv
the act )f the 14th July 1832, and the other acts
ot Congress imposing duties on imports-and that
with permission of the Senate he would make
some explanation of its provisions. In takino
this step he had no personal views to gratify his
course had been exclusively governed by a deep
sense of thedul v which he owed the country in
its present distracted condition. When he sur
veyed the face of the country, evidence of the
highest degree of prosperity was every where to
be seen and yet throughout its whole wide
spread extent, great distentions and divisions
of opinion prevailed. In introducign the pro
posed measures to the House, he had two great
objects in view. The first related to the Tariff
policy. He would express the opinion which
had not been hasttf yjormed, that the policy of
protection was in the most imminent danger.
If i t should be preserved for the present session,
it must inevitably fall at the next session
of Congress. The causes which had produ
ced this sute ot probability he would not now
go into. He was fully satisfied that the.
existing tariff could not be preserved but by the
application of forcible measures. Recourse to
such a policy could not fail to be attended by
the most calamitous consequences. When he
ooked to the vast extent and importance of
the interests protected by the Tariff policy, he
could not contemplate its sudden overthrow
without terror. History furnished no exam
ple of such ruin and destruction as would be
brought upon the country by a sudden repeal
of the protective system. The revocation of
theEdiqtof Nantz was nothing to it. The
complaints which now divide and distract the
American people are on the one hand, that they
are ground down by a system of unjust taxa
tion which parahzed their industry on the
other that the radiating, vibrating policy of
Congress in relation to the protection of our
own products, afforded no certain means of
calculation. Before a law had gone into oper
ation a law, too, passed with extraordinary
research and deliberation, it is now to be re
pealed before its operation has been tested by
any experiencepf its provisions. For the pur
pose of taking away the occasion of these
complaints on the one side, and the other, he
had sought for sorqe principles of mutual accom
modation,hich might be .aatisfactory'tb both

whicb the principle of accommodation, which
be should propose, : was founded, was time.
The extent of time which would form the in-
LgredientTof the bill, was long, compared with
human life but it was shortvery short, in
reference to the measures of a wise iroverri-
rnent. With these preliminary remarks, he
would beg leave to call the attention of the
Senate to the provisions of the proposed bill.
ay me ist section it was proviucu nisi iu an
cases where the duties proposed by the act of
14th July 183, or any other act which should
be in force after that act went into operation
should exceed 20 per cent., the amount of that
excess shall be gradually reduced by deducting
one-tenth on the 3uth beptember, ltwd one
tenth on the 30th September. 1835-r-one-tenth
on the 30th September, 1837 one-tenth on the
30th September; 1839 one-half of all that re-
ma ns atpi(1 nir to) Der cent, to ne taken on
. . ,v
on the 30th Sept. Is4 1, and the other half on
the 30th Sept. 1843 leaving the duties on
articles whatever, on which a greater rate
of duty is now imposed than ,;0 per cent, after
the expiration of nine years ana an na't at mat
rate of duly.
Mr. C. illustrated the operation of this prin
ciple by stating its effect upon woollens, which
bv the" act of 14th July were subjected to a
duty of 50 per ct. The excess subj; ct to grad
ual reduction is 30 per perct This would be
reduced by tenths biennially untill 1839 when
the duty would beH38 per cent of this 9 per
ct. being one half of the excess will be taken
offin 1841 and 9 per cent more, the other hall
in 184 ;, leaving the permanent duty at 30 per
By the 3d secction of the proposed bill it is
provided that so much of the .act of the 14th
July as fixes the rate of duty upon plain kerseys
and Kendal cottons at per cent, should be re
pealed and these articles subjected to the same
rates of duty with other woollen goods. It
- Mf W
would be recollected these articles were separ
ated from the mass of woollen manufactures as
being peculiarly burthensome to the South in
order lo produce a feeling of acquiescence in
ihe other provisions of the law. As this dis
crimination had failed of producing thai effect,
they should be placed wiih the other woollen
manulaclures and be suDiectea to tne same
scale ot reduction.
By the 3d section it is provided that the pre
sent mode of payment of duties shall be contin
ued until the 30th September 1843. After that
period all duties shall be paid in ready money.
and the whole credit system abolished.
By the 4th Section it is proposed to be pro
vided, that in addition to the list of articles
exempted from duty by the act of 14th July,
the following to be added bleached and un
bleached linens, silks imported from countries
this side the Cape of Good Hope, worsted stuff
goods, shawls and all other manufactures of
silk and worsted. This provision had been in
troduced for the purpose of guarding against
any accumulation of surplus reyenue. If the
land bill which had passed the Senate, and the
gradual reduction ofduties proposed by this bill
be caried into effect, the present Congress will
have settled two, it not three of the most agita
ting questions which have ever convulsed the
country. The revenue which might be receiv
ed into the Treasury beyond "the immediate
wants of the Government, before the rate ofdu
ties cametojts minimum in 184, would be
sufficient to finish the works already commen
ced. He had been greatly astonished by the dis
closure of the process by which the Secretary of
the I reasury proposed to keep the revenue
down to the wants of the Government. That
officer had supposed that a reduction of the
rates ofduties, would reduce the revenue in the
same proportion.. II there was any truth in the
principles of poi
itical enconomy, this would
not be the result
Irwas a maxim, that con
sumption increas-ed in proportion to the reduc
tion of price. The duty composes a part of the
price. If the duty is reduced, the consumption
is increased, and of course the relative amount
of revenue is also increased. This was proba
bly not the design of the Secretary. But he
must be permitted to say, that the plan that
had been elsewhere presented for the reduction
of the Tariff, was the most artfully devised
scheme that could be immagined. It assumed
a certain basis for the future expenditure of the
government which it was absolutely impossible
to fix with any degree of certainty. He would
proceed to the other provisions of the bill after
briefly explaining the ground of the proposed
discrimination between the silks of China and
those of France. Its object was to encourage
our commerce with that power which had be
come one .;6f the most important customers for
our great Southern staple. The consumption
of cotton frpm the South of Fance had tripled
within fourteen years and it was generally
understood that without discrimination in their
favor the low priced silks of France could not
meet those of China in the market.
By the -5th Section of the proposed bill, it
was provided that after the 30th September,
184, raw cotton, indigo, quicksilver, opium,
and a great variety of drugs and small articles
used principally in manufactories, may be im
ported free from duty.
The sixth and last section of the proposed
bill, repeals so much of the act of the 14th July
183v and of all other laws, as are inconsistent
with its provisions.
Mr. CLAY, thn went into an elaborate argument,
in defence of the provisions of hie proposed bill, in
anticipation of the objection which might be urged
against it by the friends of the protective system.
He ronteniied at length that it did not yield the prin
ciple ct" protection, bat only proposed a forbearance
of its exercise. He for one was willing to sacrifice
every thing to peace and Union. The State of South
Carolina was engaged in making experiments for
th purpose of ascertaining whether she could not
disable the General Government from executing its
lawn within her limits. That State must' inevitably
fail in those projects. It was a special pleading bu
siness utterly unworthy of her. It was impossible for

concluded by-moving for leave to introduce the hill
modifying the provisions of the acfbf July 14th, 1832
and all other acts imposing duties on imports.
The CHAIR stated the question on granting
Mr. FORSYTH said the avowed object ot the
Senator wouli undoubtedly meet with universal ap
probation. In his opinion such a proposition coui
not come more aDDropriateiy irom any source vwku-
ever, for we were indebted to none so much, lor the
universal discord which prevailed throughout the
country on this subject. Rat a few months since, it
had been in the power ol that Senator lo nave settled
this asrita ting Question forever. H would not now
ffo into any discussisn of the details of the proposed
hill it would not be in order. Although portions ol
them met hi approbation he could not see in this pro
Dosition brought forward at rhis time, and under such
circumstances the elements of success, it was too
near the close of the session to take up an original pre
position of this character in the Senale. In his view
it would be better to wait the action oft he other Hou
unon the bill now before them. There was now but
14 days Jell of the session. If the whole of both Hou
ses were unanimous in the wish of passing, this hill
excepting twenty members gifted wuh ordinary pow
er of lungs, ht y would have it in their power to pr
vent its becoming a law at this session.
Mr. POIND EXTER said ht should give his vote
in favor of leave to introduce the hill. We had ar
riv-d at a most singular state oi imngs. Mere were
gentlemen loudly denouncing all tariffs who were
yet perfectly willing to vote fleets and armies for en
forcing them. The olive branch of peace had been of
fered' by the patriotic Senator from Kentucky shall
we refuse him leave to introduce it, because fprsooti
the bill which contains it must, like most other bills.
be amended? If one of its provisions could not con
stituiionally be adopted here is it worse than a pr
cious hill now un '.er discussion which violates the
Constitution from beginning to end and ought to b
kicke.l out of the Senaie"? He hoped the proposet
hill whih look; to a state of peace and concord would
be heard. Th.- Senator from Kentucky had his
thanks for proposing it. He regarded it as a more
salutary panacea for the disorders which now perva
ded the nation, than gunpowder, balls and cannon
He was willing to accede to any proposition which
approached towards conciliation rather than clothe
the Executive with the. whole physical force of tht
Mr. CALHOUN said he entirely approved of the
onjeet ot tne hill proposed ty the Senator from Ken
tucky Mr. Clay. kvery man who loved the Union
must anently desire to see this distracting question
terminated, until this was done there never com.:
he peace and harmony among its several members,
He verily believed that the present degraded politic;
condition of the country was principally owing to the
discord, which had arisen uit of this subiect. Tin
principle upon wnicn me proposed bill was base
met hie entire approbation. If the tariff was everai
justed it could only be by giving time upon the one
side; and coming down to a general system of ad va
lorem, duties on the other. For himself he would say
that he occupied a position as hostile to the protective
system as any man in America but he would never
agree to the passage o any bill which would destroy
the, capital and skill which had grown up under it in
the -Northern States. At last we must come down to
the system of wi valorem duties; but he hoped not so
suovieniy as to impair tne value ol the vast amount ot
skill and capital now engaged in manufactures. It
would not be in order to advert to the details of this
bill; but he would repeat that its general principle
mei his enure approoation, and under it, he hoped
this vexed question would be settled forever.
Mr. WEBSTER said that, according to parlia
mentary usage, notning nut the title of the bill wa
now before th- enate. The bill had not been intro
duced. The question was, shall a bill to modify cer-
lam acts oi vougre&s De received l he object of the
hill was not stated in the title, and no objection as to
the constitutionality ol its provisions could be taken
until the measure was m possession of the Senate.
He could not torbear making a remark or two upon
the principles of the measure, as thev had been ex-
plained by the Senator from Kentucky, Mr. Clay.
Considering the importance of the proposition the.
sensation it would produce throughout the county
and the relation in which he stood to it. he should be
paruoneu ior saying a lew words upon it, though not
strictly in order. He felt bound to declare, lest his
views might be misunderstood, that oreat and anb.
stantial objections existed in his mind, both to the
principle ana to i ne aetait3 ot the proposed bill. It
entirely surrendered the po-.er of imposing discrimi
nating duties lor the purpose of protection. In direct
contradiction of the whole system of protection as es
tablished by the uniform legislatiou of Congress, for
a long series of years it proposes that the present du
ties shall be reduced at an equal rate percent, bienal

of one uniform rate of duty upon all articles subject
