and sustained by the vigor of our gov

seat of civilization and religion. The

would spring up, churches be built,

nEt1AltUl OF Mil. CLAY
ON THE TBEASL'RV NOTE BILLL.
Mr. Clay of Kentucky, said that as
.a. . r .
tne gentleman iroin .-suroi i-arouna
fMr. Brown) had made an allusion to
a matter of fact, he would trouble the
Senate with a few word in reply to
that part of his speech. It had refer
eace to tha price of Treasury notes in
the market. The price of these notes,
lika that of other commodities, was
constantly varying and, besides, they

change might have taken place, and.

Senate had not been informed. There
was another circumstance, besides the

hal vJuties lo pay, the price would
naturally be enhanced but, his life, fur
Hi if the Secretary would at once is
sue the whole ten millions proposed in
thilfbill, the notes would immediately
depreciate, and fall below par.
As I am up, fsaid Mr. Clay,) I may
now offer one or two of the reasons
why I slull vote against this bill in a
ny shape it may assume. I do not
propose to enter into anyjipecific reply
t' the speech of tfietYoluirable Senator
from North Carolina. I was sorry to
perceive that lie was on tli'n occasion
less amiable than usual. In general.
he is very good tempered. However
1 am dipoed to make every allow

should the appropriation be made by
congress, mere is no money in tbe
I reasury to meet it. This is. indeed.
a most deplorlable condition of our
public alia i is j and it may justify me in
pausing, for a moment, to inquire how
it has been brought about. How
does it happen that a country, whose
revenue was so nbundanr. wluis
Treasufyvtas so flush with treasure
that tlTe very excess was our chief em.
barrassment, ' has arrived at a state
when the Government, if it were any
thing but the Government, might be
pronounced insolvent? I will tel!
you, air, how it has come to pass. If
you add the appropriations of the last
two years to those already ordered, or
which are contemplated during the
present session, you will find that no
less than one hundred and five millions
ot tlollars have been expended, and are
in the ptoce.s of expenditure, bv an
Administration which came into pow
rr on promises of retrenchment and
reform within the space of three vears.
Ves, sir one hundred and fire millions
in three years! Less than two years
ago, as .til must recollect, every class
of person .-..noected with the expen
diture of the public moneys was goad
ed to permit more and yet more of it
to be, appropriated. The question
was. not how tittle can you- get along
upin that inquiry was not even
thought of but all were importuned
and goaded to say how much vou can
expend, if we will appropriate the
sum. The result is the fact I have
stated, that in three year-you - have-
expended one hundred and five mild
lion. Now take, in the war of com-
parison, the whole Administration of
31 rL Adanis,ai)d y im. wM4fidht.tlrt
average expenditure during tfefss four
jears was not over twel ve 'niiiKtins
that is, forty-eight million in -lour
vears. That AdministratioWf at
tacked and put down, as too waseful
and profuse to bo tolerated, -and it
yielded up the reins of power lo our
modern rrfoimers, to our economists,
who have brought the country to its
present condition by spending upwards
of one hundred million. in three
years.
I recollect, when it was the policy
of the Administration to reduce the
train, and strip Iroin the inanufacto
riaig industry! the country -the pro
tection which the laws had extended
to it, the gentleman at the head of the
Treasury Depratment (Mr. McLane)
proposed as an ultimatum of annual
expenditure fifteen millions. Taking
this as our standard, we ought, in
those three vears, to have expended
forty-five millions: we have spent one
hundred and five millions, which
leave a balance of sixty millions,
which ought to have been at this day
in the Treasury, and might have been,
there but for the extravagance and
e4 tha equanimity of tha honorable
fendemaa from North Carolina.-

that; am I to be placed, as tha gentle
man has placed all the opponents of
this bill, anions those who are inimi

The gentleman does not discriminate.
The Government ofjhis country ' the
People ol the United States are warm
ly, inalienably attached to. It is their
own Government; they set it up and
inrw mil maintain it., i) i i waro ine

egregious error, if he rnnf.rands the
Government with this Administration
if he makes no distinction among the
I'eopie ol the United State and Mr.
Van Buren and his Iriends. The gen
tleman wul discover, sooner or later.
that il he identifies a sub-Treasur
Kxecutive and the People of the Unl

greater mistake. A French monarch
once said "I am the State." 'I he pre-
suinpiuousness ot iapoleon prompted

more than I want France" but I can

is the true cause of our present finan

amount of our now in those banks is
not over four millions, while we are
told by the Administration that they
are in immediate need ot ten million
of Treasury note, beside all the oth

was resorted to as a last expedient. '

your loans at as abort periods as you
please but do not mask the matter
under the shape of Treasury notes, and
thus adopt that most dangerous of all
possible modes of effecting a supply
the creation of a Government paper
money.
Sir, what is the real object of this
bill? It is but one part of a system
long since devised, to establish a Gov
ernment Bank. The Sab-Treaaurv
bill was to have been the consummation
f tharplan. But that has gone to its
long home, and, as I trust, to its eter
nal repose, s- They cannot get up the
acheme in that shape. The reliance j
on a "hard money" currency has
failed. But a Government currency
must still be provided. To aid the
general scheme, the -Treasury -note
bill of the last session was passed.
That was lo serve the purpose of fa
miliarizing the People to the aight of
Government paper, and thus prepare
the way for a permanent establishment
of that species jrxurrenry. Scarcely
six months have passed till we are
asked for more. The Treasury we
are told, is empty. We offer to re
lieve it in the old, safe, long-tried j
mode, by open! borrowing as much
money as is needful. But no: we must

Before I resume my seat I will take
this occasion to say that i disapprove
of all thoHe merely physical contests,
by which minoritie sometimes strive

they have endeavored in vain to per

But what most of all surnrises m
in thia matter is, that those who stout-
