it- ipmi IPIBIBSl TwTO OF THK PK USIDKNT. 7"o the House nf Wciirfsrntntires i I return tho bill which originated in the House of ftpnresentalivns. entitled "in net to extend, foro hill' ted period, tho present laws for laying and collecting duties on imports," with tlio following objections t It susponds in other wouls. abrogates for thetitnc tlio proviso of the actoriSM, commonly calico the "comnromiseaei." Theonlv ground on which thisdepaittiro Irom the solemn adjustment of a great tnu agitalingqiicstinn seems to nave uccn rcgarneti s exnedient. islhe alleged nceessitv of eslabhshing, by legislative cnictiuetits, rules and regulations for assessing the duties tn bo levied on imports, after tho 30lh June, accoidinir to the home valuation t mid vet the bill expressly provider that "if,, before tho 1st of August, lucre uo no limner legisianun upon .no suu iocl, the) laws for laying and collecting duties shall Lot he samu as though this act had not been nasscd." In other words, that the net of 18'.,, imperfect as it is considered, shall in that case continue to he, and to be executed, under such rules and regulations as previous statutes had prescribed, or had enabled the biecuuvc Department to provide lor that purpose, leaving the supposed chasm in the revenue laws such M it was before. I am certainly far from being disposed to deny that dditioital legislation upon tho subject is very desira ble t on the contrnty, the necessity, as well as dif ficulties, of establishing uniformity in tho appraise ments to bo made in conformity vvith the true inten tion of that act. was bronchi to the notice of Con gress in my message tn Congress nt tho opening of un jiieeeui sspsiun. iiui noucr unsioiu i may nu f the embarrassments to w hicli tho Incentive, in the absence of all aid from ths superior wisdom of tho Legislature, will ho liable, In Ino enforcement of the existing laws, I have not, with the sincerest wish to acquiesce in its expressed will, been able to persuade myself that the oxigency of the occasion is so great as to justify ma in signing the bill in question with my present views nf its character and cHocls. The listing laws, as I am advised, ale sufficient to au thorize and enable the collecting officers, under tho Irroctiotis of the Secretary of the Tr&asuiy, to levy, tho duties, imposed by tho act of 181.?. That act was passed under peculiar circumstances, t which it is not necessary that I should do more than barely alhtds. Whit may be, in theory, its ohiracter, I have always regarded it a imparling tho highest moral obligation. It has now existed nine years, unchanged in any essential particular, with as general acquiesence, it is believed, nf the whole coun try, as that country has over msmftsted for any cf her wisely established institutions. !It has insured to it tho repose which always flows from timely, wise and moderate councils a repose tho more striking, because of the long and angry agitations which pre ceded it. This salutary law prociiims, in express terms, tho principle which, while it led to the aban donment of n scheme of indirect taxation founded on a false basis, and pushed to dangerous excess, justi fies any enlargement ol duties tint may bo called for hy the real exigencies nf the public mrvice. It pro vides "that duties shall be laid for the purposeof rais ing such revenue as may be neccMary to an econo mical administration of the Government." It is there fore in the power of Congress to lay duties as high as its discretion may dictate, for tho necessary uses of tlio (ioverniuent, without mfiingingupon tho objects f tho act of IS33. I dd not doubt that the exigencies fthoGovernmentdo require anincreasoof the tariff Mrilfltlna .Wn 9,1 no . nn.l I !:,.!.. .t... j.i,. wu. . iiiiil a nn huh; UUUIH lllill Congress may, abovo as well as below that rate, so discriminate as to give incidental protection to nnn .ufacturing industry thus lo make the burdens which it is compelled to impose upon the people, for the pur roses of government productive of a double benefit. This, most of the reasonable opponents of protective duties seem willing to concede; and if wp may judiro from tho manifestations ofpublic opinion in all quar ter, lhi is all that the manufacturing interests leal lv require. 1 nm happy in tho pursuaiiou that tins double object can be most easily and ellectually ac ornplUhcd, at the present juncture, without any de parture from spirit and principle of ihe statutei'i ques tion. The manufacturing classes have now an oppor tunity which miv never occur again, of pernnnenlly, identifying thtirinterests with those of tho whole country, and making them, in the highest sense of the torm, a national concern. Tho moment is propitious to the interests of tho whole ci.uitry, in the introduc tion of harmony among alUts parts and all its sever al interests. Tho suno rate of imposts, ami no more, as will injst surely re-establish thi)iblie credit, will cenre to tho manufacturer all the protection ho ought to desire, with every prospect of permanence andsta bdity which the hear'y ncquiesenco of the whole country, on a reasonable system, can holdout to him. But of this universal acquiescence, and le ,arm0. fly and confidence, and the many other benefits that will certainly result from it, I regard tho suspension of the lawfor distributing tho proceeds nf the siles f tho public lands as an iuilispcnsab'u condition. Tho measure, is, in my julgment, called for bv a large number if not i great majority, of the people of tho United States i by tliost.ituof the public credit and finances ; by tho critical posture nf our various foreign I relations ; and, above all, by that mot sacred of all duties publ'C faith. The net of September last, Hvhich provides for the dtstrih itinn, couples it insep arably with the condition, that it shall eeiss -first, in ciso of war ; second, as soon and so long as the rato ef duties shall, for any reason whatever, bo raided Hill and ItVport ami llious ind exlia copies are order ahovo 20 per cent Nothing can be morn clear, ex-' ed to ho printed. Three thousand extra copies wcro press, or imperative, man tm language, it is in vain to ' o;a th it a deficit in tho treasury was known to ist : hiii that means were taken to siinnlv this de ficit by loan when the act was pissed. Itistruo that a lain was authorized at the samo session during which the distribution law was pissed : but iho most sanguine nf the fiiends of the two measures enter tained no dojht that tho loin would bo eagerly eoughl nfler and tn'-en up bv capitalist-, and speedily reimbursed by a country de-tintd, as thev hoped, ion to cnioy nn overflowing prosperity. Tho very terms of tho loan, making it redtcmal !o in three ytars, demonstrates this beyond all eavd. Who, at iho lime, foresaw or imagined iho pos ibility of tho present real stato nf things, when a nation tint has paid olTher whole debt since the last peace, while nil the othoi greit powers havo been increas ng theirs, and whose resources, already so great, are yet but in the infincy i'f their development, should be compel led to higgle in the money-market for n paltry sum not equal to one year's revenue upon her economical system? If tho distribution law is to be indefinitely suspended, according not only to its own terms, but by universal consent, in the case nf war, wherein are the actual exigencies of the country, ot tho muinl obligation to provido for them, less under present eircum tances, than they could be weio we actually engaged ill war") Itnppears to me to bo tlieindispen- sstile ilnt v ol all concerned in t,,e administration of public albiirs to see that a state of tlnng so humilii ting and si perilous should not list n moment lunger thin is absolutely unavoidable. Much Ics excusable should webeiu pirting with any poiti in of our avail able means, at least untd the demands of tho treasury are fully supplied. Hut, besides tho urgency of such considerations, the fact is undeniable, that the distri bution act could not have become a law without the guaranty tn the proviso of the net itself. This connection, thus meant to be ins-parable, is sivercd by thbill presented to me. The bill violates the acts of 13J3, and September, 1811, by suspending Ihe first, nnd rendering, for a lime, the list inoperative. Duties above 20 per cent, are proposed to be levied, and yet the proviso in tho distribution act is disregar ded. Tho proceeds of the files are to lo distiibutcd en tho first ot August j so that while the diries pro posed to be enacted exceeds 20 per cent., no suspen sion of the distribution to the States is permitted to taW plaee.

The bill under consideration is designed only ns a temporary measure, ami thus a temporary measure, posted merely for Iho convenience of Congress, is mode to afTect the vital principle of nil important net.

Krnncbeck (.W.) Journal. From tho Montpclier Watchman. THE AFFAIRH OP THE GOVERNMENT. Who are to blame, for tlio dor.inrrcd stato of tlio curroncy, and for tlio National Debt t Tlio above are questions which ought to be ltcpt before the eyes of the Aniorican people, together with tlio facts which supply the an. ewer. Tlio locofoco press, with its characteris tic recklessness and disregard of truth, caring fur nothing so much as blinding tho eyes of the community by throwing dtiht therein, have long endeavored to fix tho odium of tho present dis. ordered state of the currency upon tho policy of the bankp, and tiion tho Whig party as that which controls ilium ; and latterly, since tho administration was changed in favor of the Vhign, tbcf-e xcxnc'wuz Loco editors are striving to ciilerlaiu their gullible readers with the tunc of Whig extravagance; and why? Because, in addition to tlio fact that they have tho debts of tho last administration to pay, i. c, if they can, the government cannot be supper ted, nor the country be put in a state of defence without expense, and consequently an addition to the debt bequeathed to it by its predecessor. Now before the locos can justly reap the bene fit of theso endeavors to enlighten the popple, wo would beg leave to call their attention to the question proposed at the commencement of this article. To whom belongs the blame of first disturbing tlio curroncy, of the doraneo tnentof which the country now complains ! and Low came the government so involved in debt! Tho answer is at hand, ami can easily bo made. The cause that first led to thu derangement of the currency is to be found in the hostility of Gen. Jackson to the United States llatik, through whoso well directed operations the na tional debt was paid oh", the credit of the gov. eminent established and the currency equalized. Thu blow first struck was in vetoing tho rccliar tor of tho aforesaid bank ; and next removing the public deposits lo the stale local baiiks,who wore thereupon instructed and encouraged to issue an extra amount of notes, which together with the unprecedented increase in tho number of new banks vhich took place in consequence, (tho legitimate ofispring of Jackson legisla tures,) produced the hank inll.itiou, or expan sion of the currency, which at length increased lo such a-degrec', as to induce the government to issue the famous Hpecio Circular requiring I lie sales of public lands to ho paid in hard inon- oy, and winch produced tho explosion of 1637 in tho general suspension by the Innks throunli- out the Union, and which cut oir tho resources of the government till thun derived from the deposit banks. Wince that period the government has boon obh'ged lo resort to troas ury notes, and for a short period, until it was re pealed, to the yub-tioasiiry, to enable it to inset the annual expenditure?. Tho administration of .Mr. Van Huron, notwithstanding the pecuni ary embarrassment of the limes called for the most rigid economy, was far from being econo mical, but was rather on the contrary extrava gant, at least in contracting debts. It is tlio debt of that administration which has been be queathed ajs a legacy to the present, together with a bankrupt treasury, and deranged ourron- cy to hoot, being all of it a business of its own making. And now that the friends of the American manufactures are anxious to sustain thuin by a tarill that laid on imuorted trimds shall answer the purposeof revenue as well as protection, the present opposition would fain op- pusu uiiu ueicai a measure icnuiii ns tins would to accomplish this object. And while depreca ting the evils of a disordeied curroncv. tluiv join their forces to defeat the only plan that .....l.l M :.. i . . . t ... J. 1 touiu am in rendering u uotie,, and mure uni form. And thus thev twist and snuimi and double their track, any way to prevent the truth and to throw obstacles in tlio way of tlio H'hi" policy. Hut let it bj noted as a stnbburn fr,"i that ought to be kept in mind j and which all tho sophistry of hocofocoism cannot overturn ; that the present financial difficulties under which the country and its government now la bor by being saddled vvith a national debt, and cursed with a disordered currency, are tlio con sequence of Locofoco policy and misrule, in destroying tho only institution that over has, or uvui can regulate exchanges, ami give us a uni form curroncy. And now ii tho people take it into their headsoitherhy tluir apathy orchauirc ability, to sullbr the Locos whom thuv so recent ly discarded, to get the upper hand again, be cause instant relief and prosperity did not fol low the coining in of tho Whig adiiiiiiisir.ition, why then they will have themselves tu thank i! they still continue to wear the fetters, and suf fer tlio evils which Van Huron management Ins imposed upon them. J, THE TAIU1-P AND THE LAND HILL. Openly and fearlessly do the whole locofoco party in Congress and out ol Longiess rome out lor a repeal nf the Distribution Dill. In one voice they respond to the A unifying Legisla ture of .South Carolina to repeal this Hill and throw tho fund into tho National Treasury. And what think, reader, is the reason for tins ! It is to prevent tho impos-ilion of a Tarill' of du ties thu would amount to I'rntcction. It is con reded that for years U come the proceeds of the Land sales will average live millions autiu- 1 1 v. l'ut it into the Treasury and vou there by relievo foreign imported goods of a tax of this amount, ami beneht principally the l-.nglisli Jlanulacturcrs tuns inucu per year, while at the line tune, hnglautl demands high duties upon hat thev rec.onu ot us. And the operation upon us would be lliii : 1. we excuse lureign importers irom pay. ing five millions of dollars towards supporting our Ciovortiuieut, while Ihey demand high du- tics upon our productions tu pay for supporting their (governments. It would take the land fund fiom the people or .Stales, and at the same time cut off protection to our industry lo this amount, be sides crippling our industry in detail ten times the amount. It is in fact robbing ourselves excusing for eign manufacturers Irom paying duties on the roods they import, and at thu samu tiino con senting, without retalia'.ion, to pay duties upon our exports, and thus support tho crowned heads and standing armies of tho old world. This is the result of the process which locofoco inn would have us go through. Hut the most important point is, it is urged to defeat a Tro toctive Tarill designedly and purposely.

A recent ntimbcrof tho St. Louis (Mis.) Re porter gives an interesting account of an expe dition just despatched by the U. S. government under instructions from tho War Department, to explore tho country between the Ivanzas and tho head waters of tho Great I'latto River, and tho Southern Pass of tho Rocky Mountains, with a view to a line of posts from tho frontier of Missouri to the Columbia River. Tho explor ing parly consists of 20 men under Lieut. Pro- moot, of tho Topographical Engineers, well equipped with astronomical and sthor instru ments, and Dagtierrcotypo apparatus for taking views. 'Tho expedition sooms to have grown out of tho bill introduced into the U.S. Senate, by Mr. Linn, from Missouri, for the occupation of the Oregon Territory. Tho Reporter says : 1 ho great river I'latto is the most direct lino of communication between this country and the mouth of the Columbia, and that routo is known to be practicable and easy. It therefore becomes important to ascertain tho cencral character of that river and tho adiacent coun try, and the facilities it will bo likely to afford in prosecuting the contemplated settlements in Oregon, t'ho Southern l'as?,ar despcrsion in tho Rocky Mountains, h.noar the source of tlio extreme western branch of the River I'latto, and affords an easy passage for wagons and other wheel carriages, which havo frequently passed over the mountains upon that route, without difficulty or delay: and it is important that the latitude of thii point should be ascer tained, as it is thought that it will not vary much from tho line established between tho United States and Mexico, by the treaty with Spain of 1910. If this Pass should fall south ol that line, (tho -Kd degree of north latitude,) it may become necessary to examine the coun try north of it; the line of the Yellowstone, and south branch ol'lho Columbia, would, it is tbo't, afford the next best route. The day is not hr distant when, if the Gen eral Government shall do its duty in the matter, Oregon will ho inhabited by a hardy, industri ous, and intelligent population, and tho enter prise of our citizens 2nd a now channel of trado with the islands in tin Pacific, tho western coast of this vvliolo continent, and perhaps with East ern Asia. Notwithstanding the many obstacles at present in the waj of the settlement of this territory, emigrants ire rapidly pouring into it, and only demand of Government that protection which is due to all cur citizens, wherever thoy may choose to reside. Whilo negotiations are pending at Washington to adjust all existing dif ficulties between tliii countryand Great Britain, our right to this territory should not be forgot ten. At present, it may scorn a small matter to the negotiators ; but they should remember that uvorv years delay will only render tho (malad justment of the disputed Northwestern boun dary more dillictilt. We arc pleased to learn that the propor au thorities at Washington evince a disposition to do something towards encouraging the early oc cupation of Oregon by permanent American set tlers. It is known that many of tlio islaads in the Pacific have already been settled by Ameri cans, and profitable buisncss is carried on with tho Indian tribes on the Northwestern coast of America, and vvith the East Indies ami China. Thero is unfiling to prevent trading establish- incuts in Oregon from ultimately securing a larcn share of the trade, and adding much to the wealth and prosperity of the whole. FltlDAV -MORNING.

MARSH. This much deplorod event, prematurely announced by several papers .abroad somu weeks since, has at length taken place. The tributes at that time paid to the memory of this gifted and excellent man, show full well the estimation in which ho was held by the American public, and now that lie has gone from among us, we trust that some hand worthy of the task will bo found to civo his life, his character antl his works to the world. Never has it fallon to our lot to yield tho ihort tributo of the public press to a charac ter more exulted and spotless, a life more pure and oxemplary. As u chriitain, an in structor and a citizen, he was the ornament of tho christian profession, tho pillar of tho institution wioso welfare was near his heart, and thu prido of thu State which gavo him birth. He goes down to the gravo in tho me ridian of bis years, the victim of a mind too restless and activo for the frail tenement al lotted lo it here and ho leaves behind him the blessed legacies of works of tho purest tondency, and a stainless example. Ho expired on Sunday morning tho 3d inst. in tho 48th year of his age. His funeral took placo on Wednesday and as a public manifestation of the universal re spect for his memory, and regret at his loss, our citizens closed their places of business during tlio funeral obsequies. MYSTERIOUS CHANGES. At their Slate Convention in 1811, thu Locos resolved as follows : "Ilttolrcd , That tho true principle of tho Federal Oavcrnment is to conlino its action to tho objects spuitimllij enumerated in tho constitution. LKAV- 1NU INDUSTRY TO TAKH CAUT. OK ITSELF." Well, this was roceived as tho truo "dem ocratic" doclrino and so in good faith ro mained until demonstrations too strong to be mistaken showed that "tho party" (ns it used to bo called in its palmy davs' would not submit to freo trado, in those parts when no sooner was this purceioved, than presto ! Locofocoism is shouting for ii tarill a "ju dicious tariff," and throwing itself into spasms about wool ; filling wholo columns of its barren sheets with paragraphs and arguments to prove that the whigs aro going to sacrifice tho farmers to tho nmiufacturers, and raising a great cry to tmll a liltk wool over the eves of the Vornionters. Now, when mon jump summersets ofthis kind people arc nnt to look for a motive and to judge of the sincerity of tiie change uy the cliaracter of tho men and their previous opportunities for obtaining the information assigned as tho ground fur tho alteration in their views. Thoy havo been for years seconding and inculcating tho free trade doctrines of their "natural allies" the slaveholders, nnd until lately havo drivon n tolerable business by tho aid of perversion, falsehood nnd unsound arEUinont ; but now that tlio oyos of tho wholo Union arc begin ning to bo opened to tho utter fallacy of such doctrines, it is found expedient lo begin to claw round to the othor side, and accordingly behold tho Sentinel and kindred prints bawl ing about wool in fivo lino pica at tho licnd of tlioir columns and gravely undertaking to mako it appear that tlio Whigs, headed by Consul Jarvis, tho greatest wool grower in Vermont, aro setting themselves nbout dos troyingtho wool-growing interest ! Oil 1 hor rible ! Tlio Sentinel may as well apply a bottle of salts lo its nose, and conic to, for wo shall bo much mistaken if wool is not as well pro tected as uny thing when the duties aro adjust ed, or if Looofocoism makes any groat amount of Capital out of its woolly agonies. THE SECOND HEGIRA. Again has Jacobinism, twin brother of Locofocoism, in tho person of its most noto rious champion Thomas Wilson Dorr, Traitor-general "in and over the Stato of Rhodo Island and Providenco Plantations," and prolcgo of tho commonwealth of Conncticut, been forced to quail beforo tho steady arm of law and order, and betnko itself to most in glorious flight into tho aforesaid Common wealth of Gonnotictit, and under tho all pro tecting aegis of his Excollcncy Chaunccy F. Clcavoland Esq. leaving tho hempen cord which ought to have closely embraced his traitor-neck, to encircle thoso of his misera ble dupes and abandoned co-adjutors. Well might the poor wretches exclaim in tho bit terness of their souls, when they found their mighty leader had sneaked off in the night, that if they could but catch him, ho should have good proof that the guns they had taken in his defeneo wore sure fire ! It ts an old saying that "there is honor among thieves" but hero it appears that cvon that precarious tio did not exist amid this lovely band of traitors and plunder seeking desperadoes, and the mind is, ns it wcro, forced to reflect upon what sort of a Government Rhode Is land might havo expected in tho event of the success of such a pack, in their bloody cru sade. Wo aro inclined to tho opinion that it would have been a judicious admixture of the two codes of thoso celebrated law givers Jack Cado and Caligula. Wo did really think Dorr would givo the Rhode Islanders a chance to let a little of tho rascal blood which bus bnMcd so fiercely of lato to make a slaughter house of their gal lant State. Dut the smell of powder was extremely overpowering to bis heroic nerves,, remembering in the nick of time that imperishablo adage of John Falstaff, Knight, wliich seems to have been uttered with ex press intent to relievo and excuse his fellow cowards through all timo, that "discretion is the better part of valor," away scampers the "Governor of Chopatchct nnd Woonsockct plantations "with a party of his former fel low citizens close at his heels, nnd just es capes stretching a traitor's rope, hy clearing tho Connecticut lino half an hour in advance of his 'pursuers ! O glorious retreat! O socoiul Anabasis 1 "ViiIicjm would bo Ibr- evcr cast in tho shade, would but some mod ern historian commit to paper, the astound ing exploits of his great prototype ! Dorr has thought it prudent to throw up his hand, and acknowledge himsolfuscd up. He says ho is now convinced that a majori ty of tho people aro opposed to his pseudu constitution, and therefore that ho dont mean to endeavor to enforce it any farther, and hopes they wont hang the marauders thoy havo caught. Now, if the unmitigated scoundrel wishes to redeem his character as far as possible, and mako one bright spot up on tho broad darkness of his fame, let him come lorward and surrender himself to the authorities to whom ho virtually acknowl edges himself a traitor, rind he may rest as sured his poor dupes will fare better than if they have to boar tho brunt alone. As wo look at it, some of theso scoundrels must bo hanged, or treason will become more child's play Nobody will havo any thing to do but raise an army and deposo tho legal author ities whenever they are dissatisfied with them ho most trivial thing, unless some one or moro shall bo mado examples of now. Let Dorr then come forward like a man, and if needs bo, be hanged like a man, and wo shall, after all bo inclined lo believe that his rascality is not destituto of mitigating circum stances. This rebellion has not been without its uses. Tho origin of the wholo adair, the encouragement afforded to Dorr, the aid, in arms, ammunition and "butt-enders," the refuge for him when driven to flight, the sanctuary for him while openly levying war against his nativo Stale, the apologies fur his treason, tho shouts nt the prospects of his triumph, nnd tlio wail over his defeat, havo all proceeded from Locofocoism from that party with whom tho supposed popular will of the moment, is moro sacred than the institutions purchased by thu blood and found ed by tho wisdom of our patriotic forefathers. Pcoplo of Vermont ! tho party who havo warmed and nourished this traitor against sislcr state aro askingyou to put them in pow er in your own. Will you do il Dr.ATI10KTHF.IION. SAM'L L.

An acquaintance of ours was travelling not long sinco in tho north part of tho Stato when ho stopped for the night at a house kept by a locofoco. In tho course of tho evening tho Landlord told our friend that tho Whigs wero abusing Mr. Smilio and calling him arum seller and rum drinker. "Well," said tho Whig, "is it truo ?" "No it is not" said tho loco landlord, "ho staid hero last night, nnd all tho time he was hero ho drank no rum at all, ho took nothing but gin, and only fivo or six glasses of that"! The Sentinel copied into its columns last wock a bravo articlo about S mi lie's rum sel ling, which nrticlo contained in largo caps the words "miscrablo lio" in reference to what was said in this paper on a former occasion concerning tho aforesaid Mr. Smilio and his rum. Now wo understand tho fact to be after all, that Mr, Smiliu's SON keeps the storo ostensibly, and sells rum and the "De mocratic" cant-bo-Govcrnor owns the estab lishment just as ho always did. If this is so, who lies worst, morally speaking, ho who states a substantial fact, or ho who sneaks away from that fact under a naked technical ity ? Tho Loco Senators of Tennessee, after daring tho Whig Senators to resign, refuse to give up their own places. They aro afraid of tho pcoplo. U. S. Gazette. Here is another specimen of loco valor, at the pinch. Dorr and tho Tenncsscan " Democrats," wero very bold until the smell of powder reached their noses, but at the first whin, away they ran, tho one from the guns and the other from the people, of whom they both alike stood in dread. You don't catch a loco resigning a doubtful seat to try tho people's votes over again. It was moro than the legally elected Whig officers of Now York city could do to get the scamps out when the people had voted them down. It was necessary lo call in a Loco Supreme Court to turn their own mad partizans out of power. "Cj'rt.oTATiON.
