on tie removal of the Deposites, said, "the eyes

: By takings viewof the publications of Gen.
Jackson's conduct towards the committees, com
posed of highly respectable citizens,' who were
delegated by many - thousands of his constituents,
to bear their memorials, and explain their griev
ance cm the removal of the Deposites, and par
ticularly his reply to a, delegate who was the
bearer of a Memorial from Massachusetts aS fol
lows, ' I . .
' In the eame of God; fir. what do the People
think to gain by sending their memorials here, if
they send ten thousand of them signed by all

a particle from my position." puts an end to the
question 'whether this is a government of the
tic cxaueu ser

This removal of the tTeposites was certainly, an
unconstitutional act, which neither the President
of iho U. S. nor the Secretary of the Treasury
had any right to perpetrate, for although the Se
cretary (of the Treasury) has seme power in the
recess of Congress, to direct where deposites
should be Dade, yet he has no pr-ver to remove
them aftef they are made, without a special act
of Congress, makings appropriations &c. for that
purjlbse; and the precipitate and disgraceful
maper ii which that business was transac
