ernor, by his private Secretary:
To the Hqnorable the General
Assembly of North- Carolina.
Gentlemen, Happy to meet yon
in your legislative capacity,! con
gratulate you upon having assem
bled at a period, peculiarly propi
tious to calm deliberation and to
the exercise of the highest facul
ties of the statesman. Our coun
try is in profound peace. A dc-
gree of harmony and mutual gooc
feeling, almost unparalleled, pre
ils throughout our blate. Even
the little strife, which the recent
contest for the presidential chair
excited amoiiu us. is hushed into
silence, and your minds are left
cool and collected, to devote al
their energies to the improvement
of our social condition. If, dur
ing the past yea, some cloud
have gathered in. bur political at
mosphere, yet we have abundant
reason to be grateful to that Al
mighty Reiug, in whose hands arc
the destinies of nations as'of in
dividuals, for the many blessings
which he has vouchsafed to be- sity.
: 1 1. 1
uiiueu 10 oe amused among our
citizens; the calenders of our
courts exhibit but few offences of
an atrocious nature; and health,
with some melancholy exceptions,
has shed its benign influence over
our land. Another year too has
tried the strength of our political
institutions, and given new evi
dence of the purity and wisdom
ol the principles upon wliich they
Bet ore remarking, according to
a custom which has ripened into
a duty, upon the prominent sub
jecis of internal policy which will
probably engage your attention,
permit me to advert to a measure
of the United States' Government,
adopted since your last session, ir
which not only your immediate in
terests, but your rights as a mem
ber of the confederation, are in
volved, t is with great reluc
tance that I address you oa any
act of the constituted authorities
of the nation, Did it embrace a
question of mere ordinary politi
cal expediency, 1 should be the
ast to place it before you as a le
gitimate subject for your dclibc-
ations. iNorth-Caroltna, warmly
attached to the Union, will never
complain of any measure, howev
er hai dly it may bear upon her in-
uviuual interest, it it is necessary
for the general welfare, rind if it
does not infringe the rights reser
ved by each fctate in the Federal
compact. Y e have borne, with
out murmuring, all the privations
imposed by the embargo; we have
contributed towards the piosecu-
tion ot 'he late war our share of
ti easure and of blood, of fortitude
and constancy; we have annually,
for many years, paid into the na
tional treasury, in indirect taxes,
iittle less than a million of dollars.
'1 hese things we have done, not
because we were insensible of
the burthen, but because we be
lieved the welfare of the Union
required our exertions. Bui now
it new question is presented to us.
Congress have assumed the prin
ciple, that they have power to
mould and direct the industry of
the nation to any pursuit which
they may think most advisable,
and to make all others tributary
to that which they may choose to
select. By an act passed at their
iast session, commonly called the
Tariff Act, imposing duties am
ounting to a prohibition upon the
importation of coarse woollen and
cotton fabrics, and upon some oth
er articles, they declare, in sub
stance, that the consumers of these
m an ufacttirfes, including the mass
of our community including all
the agriculturists, and all employ
ed in commerce in fact, all en
gaged in other pursuits than ma
nufactures, shall pay an enhanced
price for articles of prime nees-i
v hat is this but a tax, . lie-
stow. 1 iie labors ot the bus- tlier the enhanced price 1 y,na
