Here, sir, I should close my remarks, bat
hte promised that, before I sit down I
would give some explanation of the grounds
and principles upon which those with whom
I act in this House, and one of it, have t
ken their course in relatioa to the succes
sion. I am aJflo too deeply persuaded thai
the crisis demands the fullest developomeut
in the power of any and every one to
give of the dangeis which st present beset
If ever there was s time in the history of
this country which called 'imperiously
called for the discussion and settlement in
this place, in this Hall of the Representa
tives of the naiion, of the great and funda
mental principles, intimately and indissolu
bly connected with the liberties and happi
ness of this people, tha at ability and suc
cessful action of our. happy system of gov
ernment, it is at the present juncture. Pre
cedents snd doctrines are being established,
and engrafted not only in the pubbe ad
ministration of the Government, but in the
minds of ihe people upon public scnti
ment, subversive, in my judgment, of the
first and cherished principles of our govern
ment; precedents and doctrines destructive
of all the secMiities provided in the Consti
tution for the preservation of a free lepre
senUtive government; precedents and doc
trines at war with all that has heretofore
been, regarded as fundamental an I orgauic
in tjie very existence of a free govern
ment. It ia not only consolidation which is me
naced, but a consolidation which ought lo
be equally odious to the federalist and re
publican; a consolidation of a most offen
sive and revolting nitureto the feelings snd
judgment of every freeman; who if not al
ready become callous to every sentiment
associated wilh the name of a republic of
liberty, who is not already dead lo all the
cherished recollections of the past, and all
the insmrine hopes of the future. Sir, or.
diuary consolidation, the idea of which has,
heretofore, .been sufficient to excite the
fears of many of the most unquestioned pa
triots of the land, was nothing more than
the concentration of all Ihe powers of
sovereignty in the Federal Govern mtmt, of
which Congress might slil! u rvg irded as
respected, in Jependent, and emrient de
partments - The-tdea that the npTsmitattves
of e'ery p.irt of the Union would still an
nually assemble tn deliberate, with the spir
it and independence of 'freeman, 'upon all
the great luiecest-of the (tattoo. l!ioogh the

I thing he may do; that he u an independent
co-ordinate department of tbeQovcrnmeot,
wno u responsibis to bis constauonts' to
the people; and that we have only to at
tend to our ordinary duties as members of
toe Legislative branch of lbs Govern
ment; and to take care to ba able to an
swer lo the people for our own conduct,
without undertaking to question the propri
ety of what the President baa done, or may
do, I say I am not sure if such a senti
ment is not becoming common ia the coun
try; and I almost blush lo think that such a
feeling is not altogether unknown in this
House. Sir, it is a great mistake, and may
be the source of maoy errors and of great
mischief to the country. The Executive
chief of the Government ia responsible, not
only to his constituents, the People, but he
is responsible to this House; and this is s
part of the theory of this Government which
should never be lost sight of. It is true
that the idea, which' baa giown Op of late,
of tbe total independence of the President
on Ibis House, has become so common, thai
I am not certain if the bate suggestion of
the constitutional duties and power! of ibis
House will oo excite surprise, and stattie
the mors devoted friends of the President
But it is fit that we should not lose all re
collection of our powers and privileges. It
will have some good effect to ouke contin
ual claim to our constitutional powers,
though we may think proper lo exercise
them. I will then take leave to repeat,tbat
the President ia responsible to this House,
in the only way that be could be made so,
without depriving him of tbe shadow of in
dependence as the head of a sepanle de
pal taient of the Government snd that is,
by impeachment. Ay, sir, the President
may not only be impeached by this House,
but it is its bounden aud sacred duty actual
ly lo impeach turn for adequate cause. 1
do not mean to say thai the present uicum
bent ought lobe impeached, bull would
have this bouse to be familiar iu the knowl
edge of its powers. Tbe day may couie.rn
ihe progress of this Governiuehl, when a
great example will have to be given to tbe
country of the spirit and power of this"
House; or the Executive, instead of becom
ing, independent only or Ibis House, will
actually govern it and the People iuvo the
bargain. 5u, the constitution did not mean
that, because the P sople, by their voice,
may elevate a nun to toe Presidency, they
iio.tu.-re ly sanction, in advance, aud engage

Pr-iJnt. in connexion with Ibis su
1 kHaw that there arejnany in thu country,
a fnr nutfht I know in this House, who
retVird as a sort of holy ground that upon
certain scheme of policy of his, ia rcbtjon
to we successipi,to tb Presidency, i no
wise constituting a part of his official du
ties. But for bis oppbsitisn I base been
constantly assailed ' in this House for hav
ing changed my party and my politics; and
for the same reason tbe cry of anti-Jack;
somam is raised against me out of . this
House, by every unprinapled partisan and
partisan pross throughout Uie country. But
while I am conscious of standing upon the
same ground, and thai I am this day sup
porting the same principles which. I avowed
and acted upon from tbe first moment I bad
the, honor of a seat in Ibis, House, neither
ignorance nor prejudice on the one band,
nor artifice uor falsehood on the other, shall
deter me from doing what I oncoive to be
my duty. Let no one say, then, that in
what I am about to advance upon ibis sub- j
jortsm attacking Gen. Jackson, or that Ij
mean to make ao issue witn mm, or that J ,
seek 10 overthrow bis administration, 1
am too well convinced, of hia great popu
larity and influence to suppose that any
such attempt would succeed, if I were .dis
posed to make it My attack, (if what 1
sbatl eay shall be held in tbe light or an at-
tack al all,) will be upon that party ahd
those- paity leaders who have pushed bim
far in advance upon this subject, and upon
every occasion when there was Ihe least
danger. Tbe blows which I shall deal will
be aimed and '..dealt upon thsui,. and if, be,
ehall feel the force of auy of them it will be
tbe necessary result of bis position, and not
of any purpose of mine. For one, sir, I
do not mean to relinquish my privilege, my
light, snd my duty to the country, iu oppo
sing toe election 01 any man or party to
power, because be or they shall by srtince
have so contrived it, that every indignant
rebuke of hut or their principles and coo
duct must have sortie reference to Ibe
course of a great papular favorite.
I have said Ibat if the President may

Use lo provide a remedy against the inter
ference of subordinate officers. I use the

But,sir,this is direct iaierferenei. ft t open

and proper. I have met; with some ; res
pectable persons, (I meao , reapeciable' for
the honesty of their opinione, whor with
out diapuung tha (ecu, contend that , the
Preaident has not done any thing which
he might not rightfully and properly do I
that he may and onght to interfere in elec-'
lions, whenever he shall think that tbe in
terest of the counur will be promoted by
his interference.' It was from individuals
only that the course of the Preaident re
ceived sny countenance. The mass even
of his warmest personal friends at first
sought to evsde the question to deny or
palliate the facts. But now, whole com
munities have been' brought to scquience
in, snd even to applaud the course of the
Executive in this respect. Such ia the
power and innurnce of a popular name I
That which a few years sgo would have
struck the whole community with amater
ment, and catiaed the most Jinserepolous
partisan lb falter in his course, is now hail
ed and defended by thousands. But, what
i more to the point, thia House, orh large
mojority of it, has given its aanction to
these practice. I feel authorised to aay
this, from the circumstance that the main
facts establishing the direct interference of
the President in the election of his succes
sor have been notorious,- and have passed
uncontradicted in every section of the U-
nion for the last fifteen months, snd yet
the majority of thia House have manifested
not a mere acquiescence only.hut a decided,
thorough, and unequivocal seal, in austain
itiiT the Presideni in all the results snd ob
jects, direct snd indirect, immediate and
... . i i
remote, ol his interference. - air, i oeg
leave to refer to one or two circumstances
to show the open, avowed and notorious
character of the President's interference in
the election of his successor. It will be
remembered that the letter of the President
to Parson G win, of Nashville, in which he
waa induced lo give the aanction of hia
great nam lo the humbug ef the Balimore
Convention, and to- denounce - every man
who dared to -oppose the nomination of
that assembly as an enemy of the People,

Eral Jacksoa was once as 1 sealeus and ae
onest ia his 'opposition to all Execatit

hen in favor of the , practice, t have no '
doubt. .Without trespassing opoa tha time'
of the committee, by referring to, a great ,

present occasion, bv reading tbe sentiment
deli vered by Ihe President opon the subject
in bis first inaugural address; as evidence -of
what his opinion Uien 'was. This ad-.
dress was supposed, and waa t!6nbtless ia-'
