Fnc ihous-md men returning to the s-itlcmcnts of

invading us. If the country is once entered u ith a
view-to cxtoitthe recognition of our Independence
we must not abandon our object for if we should for
oae moment surrender any advantages upon a se-
cond attempt we should find increased difficulties
and a disposition against us on the put of ourenemy
of the most desperate and determined character an-
ting from various cauies The place of voluntccis
would have to be supplied by drafted mihth with

Ifany attempt should be made to detain them for a
longer time than si months; if they should indeed
b" willing to sub ui to the call for an oficniive war
beyond the lim.tsofthe Republic for even that time.
In the prosecution of an offensive war. there should
he no question as to the right of the goicrnmjiit to
command the scrv ices of its citizens. Unfortunately
:ii the very outset the question arise? has Congress
the power by th Constitution to order a draft ami
. oi.ipclttie citizens of the Republic to march beyond
our limits in a war of invasion' If this po.vcr ex
ists it is not to be found amongst the enumerated
powers expressly delegated by the Constitution to
Congress; and to men is clear that no such power
lias been delegated but it is "expressly reserved to the
people." If Congress does not po-sess such power
then such a livv would be unconstitutional. Were
the Executive to sanction anv such hw. with a be
lief that no such power di J exist he would violate
Ins duty to his country and to himself.
To commence invasion the troops should be en-
gaged for and during the continuance of the war
lo in Mitt o iMeMco witu a torce such as will ensure
success not less than two millier.s of money will be
required for one year's serv.ee at the same time
embracing the supplies which ur may del ic from
our enemy. To command this amount of money
would have been difficult for our country at anv peri
od and particularly so at this time when embarrass
ments exist to a more distressing extent than perhaps
atany previous period m our history That we h -.vo
valuable and almost boundless resources all will ad-
mit but they are not available and we have not there-
fore the means indispensable to the prosecution of a
campaign. Resources arc on' thing means are
.mother. Instead of means Congress has placed at
the disposition of the Executive ten millions of acres
of land for the purpose of raising mcars sufficient to
prosecute the war The Executive dors not possess
the facilities requisite to convert these resources into
means. To efitct a di-position of lands by sale or
hy pothecation in the Unnitcd States would not Le

By sanctioning the bill as a war measure at this

mind produce a mostdi letenous iiillittncc upon the
country A war of invasion tvoiihl be the tlitmi'of

would exist throughout the country general incer-

would bcunivcrsal The qui stion would be asked
what is the Executive doing? lit ha all power
given lo him and immense resoutces placet) :.t his
disposition when therefore will aclite operations
commence? It would be ure-dl-is for him to respond
that these resources arc net mums that he has not a
dollar to commence operations with and that there-
fore his delegated powers arc useless The Execu
tive has indeed a show of power but he is helpless and
destitute for the want of means.
It would be in vain for him to attempt an explana-
tion in this state of embarrassment. Ecry one who
was favorable lo invasion would iiave a plmofa
campaign; and let his evcitionsaml 7e-.1l lew hat the"

Under these circumstances it cannot be supposed that
jnouev or means for conducting a campaign to an a-
mount that would be effective could be raised in the
Uftueu btates by the hypothecation or sale often mil-
lions of acres of land or that Texas land r-ould sell
111 market unless in such portions as veic specially
designated and surv eyed.
If we turn our eyes to Eurape the prospect certain-
ly docs not brighten. "When the depression in the
general financial system of the world was much less
than it is at this time two intelligent gentlemen were
employed as agents in traversing all Europe for tlu
pnrpose of raising five millions of dollars and au-
thorised to pledge the public f nth and all the resour-
ces and means of the government for the purpose of
making the negotiation. And although our bonds
were offered at a depreciated value after employing
three years they returned without having succeeded
in negotiating any portion of the bonds at more than
fifty cents on the dollar.
The section of the bill proposing to give to each
volunteer or drafted militia man six hundred and for-
ty acres of land would be a draw back if it did not
totally defeat the sale of the ten millions of acres in-
tended to be offered. At the expiration of six- months
service this provision would throw into the market

Experience teaches us that without means we can-
not maintain a war. The emigrants who have arn-

w Inch is questionable to attempt its exercise w here it
might be luble abuse Agents arc responsible to
the people under the great constitutional charter of
thtirlibtr'y. The d-h gaud powers are defined and
expressly granted all others remain with the people
The concurrent vyill ofnll tin three departments of
the Ciovrrmcnt united could not render valid a prin-
ciple and make it binding upon the people which
was not set forth and guaranteed by the Constitution
The approval by the I'rtsiibi.t r! t"e principle set
forth by Congress would not jus'ify the exercise- on
hispirtof the extraordinary powers tendered by the
bill The citii us of the Republic regaul him a the
chief conservator of the Constitution and as such he
should ever feel it a duty incumbent upon hiuilo re-
sist every apparent encroachment upon their rights
hut net 1 r to exercise one of question ible character.
Principle isiternal and never changes men and
things do change. If it would be wrong to clothe
one individual with powers who might by their cxer
cisc bring ruin upon his country it is equally at war
with principle that a man should exercise power im
prop' rly grai.tfd though it were intended for the sal
vntion of his country.
I cannot conceive that the Constitution authorizes
any w here the powers granted 111 the second ai.d sev-
enth section of this bill ind if no other objection
than this cx.sled to the bill I would diem it insuper-
able. ThcExrcutivediily apprcciites the flattering tes-

proud to assure the honorable Congress that if every
facihtv and all the means requisite for the accomplish-
ment of a war o! invasion were at his command the

could have a ti ndency to di fiat the great object of it-

were to Miirtiun the exeri'ise of powers granted to
him by the bill he would consider it an act of vv.1r.1-

If contributions were liberally made throughout
the Republic a considerable time must elapse before
they could be converted into available (minis such
means as would enable the Executive to organize and
march an army. It could not be done at laast ante-
rior to the meeting ofthe next regular session of Con-
gress. Then it would seem that this bill would ifap-
proicd. only sanction expectation agitate the com-
munity and awaken a new ferment without producing
any effect beneficial orsa'isfactory tothc country.
To invite an army of five thousand volunteers into
service without means lo subsist them would be pro-
ductive of incalculable injury to the nation. I would
not adventure anything fraught with so much peril
drcdand forty acres w hich -vould amount in the ai- t0 mJ' country. The experience of seven years is be
grcgate to upwards qf three millions; and for twelve
months to near six millions and a half of acres. The
certain prospect of purchasing these for a mere trifle
would induce those who wish to speculate in Texas
lands to husband their inean; as they could render
eiicm inoio avaiicole oy speculating upon discharged
soldiers than they could by purchasing lands ol the
Executive under the provisions ofthe bill. To hy
pothecate the ten millious of acres placed atthedispo-
suion 01 tne executive without other guarantees lor
the final payment of the money obtained would by
the Executive be deemed impossible to any useful ex-
tent; nor would it be more probable that any sale
could be effected of lands which could not be identifi-
ed: and the location of which if everlocated. must be
at the expense trouble and risk ofthe purchasers. If
it were possible to eriect either of these objects it
would require m&Uis for its eflectation. The Exec
utive has not one dollar. The Congress has annro
priated already an amount greater than the whole
