The progress made in the development
of these posiitions, appears' in tlt. preening I
sketch of the past hiiiory and 1-esent state
of the financial concerns of tile Federal Go,
Yverryment. -,The facts there stated fully au-
thoiize ihe assertion, that ali-the purposes
for which this Government was instituted-
tvavebhca accomplished during four years
of greater pecuniary embarrassment than
weOe ever before experienced in the time of
peace, and in the face of opposition as for-
ui dabte as'Qay that was ever before arrayed
against the policy of an administration; that
,this has been done when the ordinary re-
,venues of the Government were generally
decreasing, as well from the.oppration of
the laws, as the condition -of, t6l9ti untry;
without the creation of a permanent public
debt. or incurring any, lability, other than
such as the ordinary, resources of the Go-
verntmnt will speedily discharge, and with-
out the"agency of'a national bank.
If this view- of the proceedings of the
Government, for the period it embraces, be
w;'arrantted by'the facts as -they are known
to'exist; ifthe army and navy have been
sustained to the full extent authorised by
law, and -which Congress deemed sufficient
for- the defence of the county-,and the
protection Of its rights' and its honor; if its
-civil- and diplontatic service has been'equal-
ly sustained; if ample provision has been
imade for tile administration of justice and
the execution of the laws; if the claims up-
on public gratitude'in behalf of the soldiers
of tlhe Revolution have been promptly met;
afid faithfully discharged; if there have
been no failures in defraying the very large
expenditures growing out of that long-con-
tinued and- salutary policy of peacefully re-
moving the Indians to regions of compara-
tive safety and prosperity; if the public
faith has at all times, and every where; been
most scrupulously maintained by a prompt
. discharge ofthe numerous, extended, and
diversified claims on the Treasury;--if all
these great and permanent objects, with
many others that, might he stated, have, for
a series of years, marked by peculiar ob-
stacles of difficulties, been successfully ac-
complished without a resort to a permanent
debt or-the aid of a national bank, have we
not a right'to expect thatfa policy, thte object
of which has been to sustain the public ser
vice independently of+ either of these- fruit-
ful sources of discord, will receive the final
sanction of a people whose unbiassed and
fairly elecited judgement upon public affairs
is never ultimately wrong ?
The embarrassments in the pecuniary
concersof individuals, ofunexambled extent
andduration; have recently existed in this
as in ohlier commercial nations is undoubt
edly true. To suppose it necessary now to
t race these reverses to their sources, would
'be a reflection on -the intelligence of my
fellow-citizens. Whatever may have been
the obscurity in which this subject was in-
volved at the earlier stages ofthe revulsion,
here cannot now be many by whom the
whole'question is riot fully understood.
Not deelmng it within the constitutional
,powers of the General Government to re-
pair private losses sustained by reverses in
business having no connexion with the pub-
lie service, either by" direct appropriations
from. the Treasury, or by special legislation
-,designed,1to secure exclusive privileges and
immnunities to individuals or classes in pre-
ference to. and at the expense of, the great
majority necessarily debarred from any par-
ticipation in them, no attempt to do so has
been. either made, recommended, o0 ncour-
aged by the.present Executive.
-It is believed, however, that the great
purposes for the attainment of which the
Federal Government was instituted have
not been lost sight of. Intrusted only with
certainlimited powers; cautiously enumer-
ated, distinctly specified, and defined with
a precision and clearness which would seem
to deVfymniseoristruction, it has been my con-
stant aim to confine myself within the lim-
its so clearly marked out, and so carefully
guarded.
H-Iavin'g always been of opinion that the
best preservative of the union of the States
is to be found in a total abstinence from the
exercise of all doubtful powers on the part
,of the federal Government, rather thatn in
attempt$ to assume them by a loose con-
-tructiion of the constitution, or an ingeni-
.0us perversion of its words, I have endea-
-.vored to avoid ie commending any measure
wh2ch-I ad-reason to apprehend would, in
the opinion eveu of a consi er ble minori-
ty- of iry^ fellow citizens, be regarded as
renehing on the: rights of the States, or the
provisional, of the hallowed instrument of
our Union. Viewing the' aggregate powers
of the Federal Government as a voluntary
concession of the States, it seemed to me
that such only should be exercised as were
at the time, intended to be given.


f hav:elbeen strengthened, too, in the pro-
priety tof this. cqrse, by the conviction that
all efforts to go beyond this, tend only to
,produe 'dissatisfaction and distrust, to excite
jealousies, and to provoke resistance. In-
stead of adding'strength 0to the Federal Go-
vernment, even when successful, they must
ever proveda source of incurable weakness,
by alienatihg a portion of those whose ad-
hesion is indispensable to the great aggre-
grate of uniied strength, and whose volun-
tary attachment is, in my estimation, far
more egiSntial to the efficiency of a govern-
ment strong in 'the best of all possible
st rength-tthe confidence and attachment of
all those who make up its constituent ele-
inents. "
Thus believing, it has been my purpose
tosecurelo the whole people, and to every
members othie confederacy, by general,
salutari'a,'"dequal laws alone, the benefit
of those rep.ublicaninstitutions which it was
the end and Wim -of tl&e'conistilution to es-
tablish, amati^Ue imparuial influn-iU of which
is, ih my'u-'gmenidispensabio tb their

important step. towards relieving the court
try from the condition into which it had
been plunged by excesses in trade, banking,
and credits of all kinds, was to place the
business transactions of the Government
itself on a solid ba.is; giving and receiving
in ail cases value for value, and neither
countenancing nor encouraging in others
that dehlsive syst, m of credits from" \\hich
ithas been'fou'nd sodifficult to escape, and
which has left nothing behind it but the
wrecks that mark its fatal career.
That the financial affairs of the Govern-
ment are now, and have been during the
whole period of these widespreading diffi-
culties, conducted with a strict and invaria-
ble regard to this great fundamental prin-
ciple, and-that by the assumption and main-
tenance of the stand thus taken on the very
thresholdpof the approaching crisis, more
than by any other cause or causes whatever,
the community at large has been shielded
from the incalculable evils of a general and
indefinite suspension of specie, payments,
and a consequent annibilation, for the whole
period it might have lasted, of a .just and
invariable standard-of value, will, it is be-
lieved, at this period, scarcely be question-
ed. -
A steady adherence, on the part of the
Government, to the policy which has pro-
duced such salutary results, aided- by judi-
cious State legislation, and, what is not less
important, by the industry, enterprise, per-
severance, and economy of the American
people, cannot fail to raise, the whole coun-
try, at an early period, to a state of solid
and enduring prosperity, not subject to be
again overthrown by the suspension 'of
banks or the explosion of a- bloated credit
system. Itris for the people, and their re-
presentatives, to decide whether or not the
permanent welfare of the country (which
all good citizens equally desire, however
widely they may differ as to the means of
its accomplishment) shall be in this way
secured; or whether the management of
the pecuniary concerns of the Government,
and, by consequence, to a great extent,
those of individuals also, shall be carried
back to a condition of things which fostered
those contractions and expansions of the
currency, and thoso reckless abuses of cred-
it, from the baleful effects of which the
country has so deeply suffered-a return
that can promise, in the end, no better re-
sults than to reproduce the embavrassments
the Government has experienced; and to
remove from the shoulders of the present,
to those of fresh victims, the bitter fruits of
that spirit of speculative enterprise to which
our countrymen are so liable, and upon
-which the lessons of experience are so un-
availing. The choice'is an important one,
and I sincerely hope that it may be wisely
made.
A report from the secretary of War,
presenting a detailed view of the affairs of
that department, accompanies this commu-
n ic a tio n .
The desultory duties connected with the
removal of the Indians, in which the army
has been constantly engaged on the north-
ern and western frontiers, and in Florida,
have rendered it impracticable to carry in-
to f-ulleffect the plan recommended by the
Secretary for improving its discipline. In
every instance where the regiments have
been concentrated, they have made great
progress; and the best results may be an-
ticipated from a continuance of this system.
During the last season, a part of the troops
have been employed in removing Indians
from the interior to the territory assigned
them in the West-a duty which they have
performed efficient, and with praise wor-
thy humanity; and that portion of them
which has been stationed in Florida eontin-
,ued active operations there throughout the
heats of summer.
The policy of the United States in regard
to the Indians, of which a succinct account
is given in my message of 1838, and of the
wisdom and expedietcy of which I am fully
satisfied, has been continued in active opera-
tion throughout the whole period of my
administration. Since the spring of 1837,
more than forty thousand Indians have
been removed to their new homes west of
the Mississippi; and Ilam happy to add,
that all accounts concur in representing
the result of this measure as eminently be-
neficial to that people.
The emigration of the Seminoles alone
has been attended with serious difficulty,
and oeeasioned bloodshed; hostilities hav-
ing been commenced by the Indians in
Florida, under the apprehension that they
would be compelled, by force, to comply
with their treaty stipulations. The execu-
tion of thetreaty of Payne's Landing, signed
in 1832, but not ratified until 1834, was post-
poneds at the solicitation of the Indians,
until 1836, when they again renewed the
agreement to remove peaceably to their


new homes in the west.
In the face of this solemn and renewed
,compact, they broke their faith, and com-
menced hostilities by the massacre of Mejor
Dade's command, the murder of their agent,
General Tnompson, and other acts of cruel
treachery. When this alarming and unex-
pected intelligence reached the seat of
Government, every effort appears to have
been made to reinforce General Clinch, who
commanded the troops then in Florida.
General Eustis was despatched with rein-
forcements from Charleston; troops were
called out from Alabama, Tennessee, and
Georgia; and General Scott was sent to
take the command, with ample powers and
ample means. At the first alarm, General
Gaines organized a force at New Orleans,
ahId, without waiting for orders, landed in
Florida, where he delivered over the troops
he had brought with him to General Scott.
Governor Call was subsequently appoint-
ed to conduct a summer campaign, and at
the close of it, was replaced by General
Jesup., These events and changes took
place under the administration of my pre-
"decessor. -
Not'withstanding the exertions of the
experiecheed' officers who had command

SEVENTY SIXTH CONGRESS.
UNITED STATES SENATE ORGANIZATION.
The Senate was called to order at h; If past
twelve yesterday-Hon. WM. R. KING, of Ala-
bama,in the chair. A quorum was present after
the arrival of the cars, and the members of the
Senate proceeded regularly to business.
A message was then sent to the House of Re-
presentatives announcing the fact that a quorum
was present and ready to proceed to business.
COMMITTEE TO WAIT UPON THE PRESIDZ.ET.
The House senta message to the Senate annonc-
ing the appointment of a Committee to wsit up,
on the President with instructions to inform him
of the organization.
A Committee was appointed on the part of the
Senate, consisting of Messrs. Wnght of New
York, and Huntington, of Conn. The House
Committee was composed of Messrs. Taliaferro
of Va. and Cave Johnson of Tenn.
COMMITTEE OP THE SENATE.
Mr. Smith of Indiana moved that the thirty-
fourth rule of the Senate be suspended in order
that the President of the Senate might appoint
the several Standing Committees with the ex-
ception of the Chairman of the Committee on
Commerce.
rFnSIDENT's MESSAGE. "
Between one and two o'clock Mr. WFUGuT ap-
peared and made known to tne Senate that he
had waited upon the President of the United.
Street, and that a Message would forthwith be
communicated.
The prtvc.te s, cretary of the President--Abra-
ham Van Buren, then appeared w th the Mes-
sage, which was read by Mr. "DtCKENS, the H -
cretary of Senate.
tOL'SE UP RI^RESENTATIVES.
The speaker took the chair ot 1 o'clock to
daiy, and about two-thirds of the members were
in their seats.
The preliminary business; of the House was
unimportant, and of the character of that trans-
acted in the Senate.
Newspapers were ordered, and a resolution in
regard to Chapians adopted, and the hour of
meeting fixed at twelve o'clock until further
. notice.
ABOLrTIoN PETrrTIONS.
M, ADAMS called up the resolution submitted
by him to the House on yesterday.
Mr. JENIFER ,ff Meryland moved to lay the re-
solution on the table.
The SPE-AKER reminded Mr. J. that the mem-
ber from Mass-.eh setts was entitled to the Bloor.
Mr. AnAMs hoped that the member from Mary-
land would not press his motion to lay upon the
table, as he had no retention of debating it.
Mr. Adams very. briefly stated his reasons for
submitting the mutton to rescind. I am not
willing," said he, that the rule in question


should remain in force a single hour lodger. I
believe it to be a direct violation ofhibe Constitu-
tion of the United States, and for this reason I
have thus early in the season brought the sub-
ject to the auentibn of the House."
Mr. BA7M9 of Virginia followed and e -------
his regret that the member from Meassachusetts
had brought forward the motion. The question
by resolution solemnly ratified by the h. use, was
disposed of at the la- t session of Conrress. If
the member from Massachusetts was again agi-
tating it he was for meeting it' by a direct vote of
the house, and therefore renewed the motion to
lay upon the table.
"The yeas and nays were demanded by both
Messrm Adams and Banks.
M r. WILLIAM of North Carolina begged that
the last motion might be Witbdrawn. Oa so in-
teresting a subject it was imortant that there
should be a full vote, and there were not now
more than two third of the members present.
1 1 am", said Mr. Williams, 1averseto have any
partial expression of opinion on the sahket. and
therefore suggest a poltponumet until Wednes-
day next."
Other reasons were given by Mr. Wallias in
favor of postponement, and amwag them, the fact
that Mi. Vm. Coat Johnson, dw author of the

APALACHICOCA, December 26, 1840.;


1IFWe are autho-ised to announce Col. A. G.
SEMMES, as a Candidate for Mayor of the Ci-
ty of Apalachicola Election, on the 1st Monday
in January next. dec 26


Nothing is more likely, or can more properly
claim the calm and dispassionate considerat On
of a community, and especially of a mercantile
community, than the state of the currency, or cir-
culating medium of the country.
That men of both of the great political parties
in this country, if not taken as parties at least as
individuals, are prone to run into extremes eith-
er way, is, we think, undeniable, and the discus-
sion of such questions, is too often the result of
passion or favoritism on either the one side or
the other. No man who will permit himself
calmly to reflect, looking at the past history of
this country, having an eye to its great agricul-
tural and mercantile interest, it would seem to
us, could insist upon an exclusively metallic
currency ; and yet both reason and necessity
seems most imperiously to demand, that the cir-
culating medium of the country, should always
be convertable into its constitutional currency.
It is no reply to this argument of necessity to
say th t the banks which refuse to pay specie for
their bills when demanded, are abundantly sol-
vent, and that their ultimate ability to redeem
all their obligations is beyond doubt. From our
peculiar commercial and other relations, from
the fact that we, as a nation, are a young and
energetic people, and from the further fact that
the amount of active capital is greatly diffused,
in comparison with that of most other countries,
few are either willing or able to wait the tardy
process of time, to make such funds available.
An inflated currency, must of necessity pro-
duce ultimate suffering, and injury to all classes
of the community. To the community as a mass,
because it throws the balance of exchanges and
trade against them. To the merchant particu-
larly, because it increases the expenses and
risque in conducting his business. To theplan-
ter, who is the consumer, because, according to
all the laws of trade, he must bear the ultimate
loss. An inflated currency has another most
pernicious tendency. In its inception it encour-
ages wild and heedless speculation in its ulti-
mate consummation, it forces often the mere
want of confidence to invest it in property un-
productive as a means of self security.
Suppose a bank having such a circulation to
be to day able ultimately to redeem all its obliga-
tions, how long is it probable that it can re-
main so if it continues to do business? Its bills
are depreciated in value, and in the collection
of its deb:s, or in the purchase of cotton in order
to raise a northern fund against which it can
draw, (and of this practice we" shall hereafter
speak,) it is compelled to submit in its own case,
to the same discount upon its bills, that others are,
say twenty-five per cent. In the one case, in
collecting its debts in its own bills, it does not
increase its intrinsic capital, except by the dimi-
nution of its circulation, which is generally fol-
lowed up by a corresponding expansion. In the
other, it is paying twenty-five percent, exclusive
of its necessary expenses in carrying on its bu-
siness, in order to be enabled to discharge its
own obligations. Now, under a system of this
sort (desperatelyas it wouldbe most likely to be)
carried out, how long would it take to exhaust
the actual assets of the bank in the payment of
interest (for it is so in effect) alone, and what re-
hance could be placed upon its ultimate solven-
cy 1 But apart ,from these considerations, ac-
cording to the ordinary laws of trade, what evi-
dence have we of the solvency of a bank when
it refuses to redeem its obligations. If a mer-
chant permits his no'e to be protested for non-
payment, his credit is blasted-why ? because it
is prima facia evidence of one of two things,
either that he is insolvent or dishonest. This pa-
per cannot be made avail-ible to his credit, nor to
discharge his obligations, and so, neither, can
the paper of a non specie paying bank be mnde
available to i's etoditors. We ask, where is the
difference in the two cases ? The correction for
thin. evil is in the hands of the representatives of
the people-let it be applied, for delays are dan-
gerous.

President's Message.
We publish in this day's paper this important
document, "and ask for it a calm and dispassion-
ate perusal. Our columns are so crowded that
we have not room to speak of it, except simply
to express our admiration of the purity ot its
style, llhe lofty and dignified tone which will, we
think, be manifest to all, and the ability with
which each subject touched upon is handled.--
Let each citizen read and judge for. himself.

Amusements.
Sinee our last the Theatre has been well pa-
tronised, and the several performers have dis-
charged well their duty. We have not room to-
day to speak of them in detail, but certain it is,
that they deserve well. This evening will be
presented the nautical drama of Blade Eed ,Su-
san, for the benefit of Mrs. Carter.
The lovers of music were delighted last even-
ing, at the Episcopal Church, by. the Oratorio of
Baron de Fleur. We understand the audience
was large and fashionable, and all highly pleased.

t-Owing to the publication of the President'
Message, and other matters, we have been eom-


polled to exclude several communications and a
quantity of editorial matter.
f:JThe Superior Court of Franklin County
(extra session) adjourned sixe die on Thursday,

stand that the docket was completely gone

In i-.ur review of' la.i Saturday morning, ue
replied 0Ie tran-actions in C'ofin for ihe thiee
day previous as having been to a very fair ex,
frit-the nlure common n qualities at rates a frac-
tion lower, but at full prices lor the better sorts
in consequence of these being scarce, and also
in considerably greater request. The demand
since then has been tolerably- fair-there has, it
is true, been a considerable degree of shyness
evinced on the. part of 'many operators, and the
market may be said to have exhibited a want of
animation, especially yesterday, but yet, on the
whole, a fair business has been done, the sales of
Saturday having amounted to 3,400 bales, on
Monday to 3,900, and yesterday to i,700-mak-
ing a total for the three days of 9,000 bales. In
prices we cannot quote any decided change.
The market for the lower qualities continues
rather easy, and buyers have, in some instances,
been able to make purchases on a little more fa-
vorable terms than they could haye done before,
but for all descriptions above barely fair, pre-
vious rates are well sustained. There is a tol-
erably fair stock of cotton in first hands, but as a

Of the above ihe Bank of Pensacola re-

received S6400,000 bearing five per cent in

The Bonds of tlie. Life and Trust and
Pensacola Banks, are obligalitmns of the"
Banks of one thou.and dollars each pay i-
ble in the years 1860 and 1865, -uiradiiete.Ie
by Ihe endorsement of the Governor of
the Territorv. Those of the Union Bank
are obligations of the';Territory of one
thousand dollars each (for Which the Ter-
ritory nevcr received a cent) endorsed by
the Bank. .
The Life atnd Trust proposes to pay her'
share from year to year by a sinking fund
based upon the interest of her m1,rtg~ag(?s.
For instance \% lien Lot Clark pays up his
annual interest at 8 peT cen.t -on Ihe $12,-

cost him $1,800, and Charles Downing
-pays np his annual inlferest on $10,000 tior-

expended in buying another Mount Tuvk-
cr lot. would almost redeenrtwo Bonds!!!
The Peusacola Ban k was to paN her sha e
%Vith the profitsofa ,rail-road to Montgome-
ry in Alanaman; but lire whole 19500 000) ba
been squandered .without making one foot
of the road aforesaid. Samuel Jaudon,
Morri, Robinson, Elihu Chauncey, Thomas
Br"i'le, S. V. S Wilder and similar folks,
stand Godfithers for the hopeful concern;
but ir remains to be seen whether they will
regard their porkers, or their souls, or
whether their souls be not deficient of hon-
or and their pockets of cash.
The -Union Bank, proposed to pay her
share by a surplus futid produced by the
profit;, Of the-Bank, which were not to be
withdrawn but to0go on compounding at a
rate that casts into the shade the old calcu-
latio-n ofbuying a horse at a farthing for
the first nail and doubling on each subse-
quent. By mismanagement, however, the
charm is broken. Last winter-'s exatnina-
lion sh0srs pretty clearly, that the Bank

:what do you think of your security ?
; "We don't care two whiffs of an old wo-
;naris pipe," tthey'll reply, "for your Bauks.
Banls maY go~to the dogs in Florida, as they

APALACHICOLA MARKET.
The operations in our cotton market, for the
last week, have been to so limited an extent,
that it is hardlydeemea necessary to notice them.
-A few bales only have c anged hands, but at
prices fully as high as these of last week. There
was a slight rise in prices the previous week,
and we think the endeavor to maintain these
prices, has tended to make purchasers hold off.
In Dry Guods and Groceries a fair business
is doing.
