1834 Inhabitants of Wash. Co., Ohio

  1. 1. 1834 INHABITANTS OF WASHINGTON COUNTY, OHIO IN REFERENCE TO THE RECHARTERING OF THE BANK OF THE UNITED STATES. The below document contains 861 signatures of Washington County, Ohio citizens. NAMES ARE TRANSCRIBED AS THEY APPEAR ON THE DOCUMENT In order to understand the document below, read what I was able to find about the history of the BANK OF THE UNITED STATES during the years, Andrew Jackson was president: ....Although President Andrew Jackson did not make the Second BANK OF THE UNITED STATES an issue in the 1828 election, not too long after, he announced that he believed the bank, a private corporation established in 1816 and was operating under a federal bank, and had failed to provide a stable currency. He believed that it had favored the privileged few at the expense of the common person in it's operations, and was in violation of the United States Constitution. The charter was not due to expire until 1836 but in July of 1832, the president of the bank, Nicholas BIDDLE was persuaded by some of Andrew Jackson's enemies, mainly Henry CLAY and Daniel WEBSTER to push a bill through Congress granting a re-charter, but President Jackson, quickly vetoed it. This was a major issue in the 1832 presidential campaign, that helped Andrew Jackson, and Martin Van Buren (running mate for Vice President) defeat Henry CLAY and win the election. This war against the bank lasted through out Andrew Jackson's 2nd term as president. In 1833, Jackson ordered federal deposits withdrawn from the bank because of BIDDLE's use of bank funds was to support anti-Jackson candidates. After two secretaries of the Department of the Treasury refused to comply with his orders, Jackson had them both removed from office. Because of that, it earned him the sensure of the Senate and with his use of the presidential veto, prompted his enemies to charge him with abuse of power. Although Jackson destroyed the Second Bank of the United States by withdrawing government money, his administration failed to develop a coherent national banking policy. In many states, especially in the South and West, state-chartered banks engaged in irresponsible and speculative issuance of paper currency--a policy that Jackson and other hard-money advocates opposed. (The federal government issued no paper legal tender prior to the Civil War.) Thus during the mid-1830s the United States was swept by a land boom. Sales of federal lands soared, helping to wipe out the national debt and creating a large federal surplus. By 1836, however, the boom was becoming increasingly speculative. Alarmed and determined to curb extensive use of paper currency issued by private state-chartered banks, Jackson, in the Specie Circular of 1836, forbade further purchases of federal land or payment of federal debts in any currency except federally issued coins. His actions, which created a demand for specie that led to many bank failures, were opposed by conservatives in the business community; they charged him with responsibility for disrupting the economy and blamed him for the ensuing Panic of 1837........ ========================================
  2. 2. 23d Congress [Doc. Vol. 487] Ho. of Reps. 1st Session ------------ MEMORIAL OF INHABITANTS OF WASHINGTON COUNTY, On the state of the Currency. ~~~~~~~~ May 26, 1834 Read, and laid upon the table. At a meeting of the citizens of Washington county, in the State of Ohio, convened at the court-house in Marietta, March 29, 1834, to consider as to the course to be adopted in regard to the late measures of the Executive in assuming the control of the national finances, the meeting, was called to order by Colonel Ichabod NYE. Whereupon, William R. PUTNAM, Esq. was elected Chairman, and John DELAFIELD, jr. and Levi H. GODDARD, Esquires, Secretaries. A committee appointed to report a preamble and resolutions in relation to the subject before the meeting, returned, and made report of the following preamble, resolutions, and memorial to Congress; Whereas the recent measures of the Executive Department of the Government of the United States, in respect to the Bank of the United States, and the money affairs of the country, and their effects upon it’s businesses and concerns, render an expression of public sentiment proper at this time; therefore, as the since of the citizens here assembled, RESOLVED, That the removal by the Executive of the public deposits from the Bank of the United States, was a measure not warranted by law, unwise in policy, and ruinous in its tendency to the business and prosperity of the country. RESOLVED, That the character of our country and the condition of the people, especially in the West, render credit an essential instrument to the business and prosperity of the country; and that its employment in the form of a sound bank paper circulation, based upon coin, is best calculated to sustain the industry, and develop the resources of the country. RESOLVED, That the Bank of the United States, while it has essentially contributed to preserve and maintain a sound and healthy circulation of the State banks, has realized, in an eminent degree, the advantages of such a system, and has afforded the most safe, cheap, and desirable facilities for the exchanges of business of the country; and that as means and instrument to sustain and advance these great objects, and to save [Gales & Seaton, print.) [This is a footnote] Page 2 [Doc. No. 487] the country from impending distress and ruin, in its peculiarly affairs, the best interest of the country require that it should be continued, (at least for a limited time,) under such modifications and
  3. 3. restrictions as Congress in its wisdom shall deem necessary and expedient. RESOLVED, That in the opinion of this meeting, the late resolutions of the Legislature of this State did not express the real sentiments and opinions of a majority of the people of this county in all parts thereof; and that committees be appointed by the Chair, in the several townships, for that purpose; and also a central committee of five citizens for the superintendence of that object, and forwarding the memorial to Congress. The following memorial was then read, and unanimously adopted: TO THE HONORABLE THE SENATE AND HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED STATES IN CONGRESS ASSEMBLED: The memorial of the undersigned, citizens of Washington county, in the State of Ohio RESPECTIFULLY REPRESENTS: That, as a part of the American people deeply interested with their fellow-citizens in the political and social condition of their common country, they beg leave thus respectfully to submit to the representatives of that people, the immediate guardians of their rights and their interests, a brief statement of present, and, as they believe, impending evils. Your memorialists have viewed with surprise and painful apprehension the recent measures of the Executive Department of the Government, by which the control of the national finances, and the regulation of the national currency, of the whole monetary system of the country, upon which all our prosperity depaned, have been unlawfully, as they think, assumed by the President, and attempted to b withdrawn from those hands --the hands of Congress-- in which the constitution and the laws had placed them. A change in the administration of that branch of national affairs, the influence and the ramification of which extend directly to all parts of the community, so momentous in its character and tendency, and so memorialist think, for a decided expression of public sentiment, and most urgently, upon the patriotism and the action of Congress for its correction. To Congress, your memorialists believe, belongs, of right, and according to the will of the people constitutionally expressed, the control and disposition of the national treasure. Its union, so sudden, so unexpected, and so alarming, with the Executive power, presents, in the apprehension of the undersigned, an aspect, a crisis of public affairs, pregnant with imminent peril to the rights and security of the people. To that body the undersigned citizens appeal, to guard these rights, and restore that security. Your memorialist further respectfully represent, that, although distant Page 3 [Doc. No. 487] from the principal seats of commerce and capital, the effect which have flown from the removal of the public deposites from the Bank of the
  4. 4. United States, and the hostile attitude assumed and maintained by the Executive to that institution, have reached them, in a sudden and rapid reduction of the circulation medium, and a consequent pressure and embarrassment in money transactions and trade; an almost total derangement of the facilities for sales, remittances, and exchanges which previously existed; in a depression of the prices of agricultural productions, the stapels of the county; in a depression of enterprise, and a general distrust and loss of confidence, which have given a serious blow to private credit. And if these evils have not yet overwhelmed them with the degree of distress with which the commercial cities and more populous districts have been assailed, the occasion of this short and partial respite is found in the difference of position and population; whilst the same primary causes, certain in their operation, must visit them with the like ruinous consequences. This change in their condition has followed the recent measures of the Executive already mentioned. Prior thereto the business of this district of country was prosperous, and its money circulation healthy and adequate to the demands of that business. The reasons assigned for the rash measure which has reversed the former prosperous condition of things, are at war with the experience of your memorialists, of the benefits derived by them from the Bank of the United States; in the soundness of remittance, whilst its operations in this region of the country contributed to sustain the credit, usefullness, and efficiency of the local banks. The change thus wright, instead of benefiting these institutions, has constrained them rapidly and greatly to reduce their circulation, and curtail their accommodations to the business of the country; a business consisting, mainly, in the export and marketing of the products of the soil. Your memorialists, therefore can see no adequate means of relief from the evils which have thus been brought upon them, and which threaten them in future, but in a restoration of the former reactions between the Government and the Bank of the United States, and the rechartering of that institution on such terms, and with such modifications as Congress in its wisdom shall deem expedient. Your memorialists, looking to the experience of the past, regard such an institution as essential to the maintenance of a sound circulation and monetary system, uniting the tried and eminent advantages of specic and bank paper, whilst they believe that a reduction of the business of the people of this country to a mere coin circulation is as impracticable, and would be as little desirable as an entire change in the social habits of the people. Your memorialists, therefore, respectfully and earnestly pray that Congress, moved by that paramount consideration, the well being and prosperity of the people, will devise such means of relief as the present alarming and oppression condition of the country most urgently demands. [The Chairman nominated the following gentlemen as the Central Committee, viz. EPHRAIM CUTLER, ARIUS NYE, CLAEB EMERSON, JOSEPH BARKER, JR., and JAMES M. BOOTH The township committees where then appointed by the Chair; when, On motion of Arius NYE, Esq., the following resolution was unanimously adopted: Page 4 [Doc. No. 487] RESOLVED, That this meeting highly approve the noble stand taken by the late Secretary of the Treasury, Mr. DUANE, against the measure
  5. 5. of the Executive, of removing the public deposites from the Bank of the United States; and we would commend to all public men the just sentiment expressed by him in his reasons against that act, viz. “that he does not think that the end justifies the means, or that there is any distinction between moral and political integrity.” On motion of J. DELAFIELD, jr. Esq., the following resolutions was unanimously adopted: RESOLVED, That, in the opinion of this meeting, our Representative, by his vote on the party questions in the last session of the Ohio Legislature, relative to the rechartering of the United States Bank, and the removal of the deposites, misrepresented the views of a majority of the citizens of Washington county.] On motion, the meeting adjourned.
