Remarks (Classic Reprint) free pdf Excerpt from Remarks In Committee of the Whole, on Wednesday evening, March 5, the Bill providing for an appropriation of five millions of dollars, and the raising, arming and equipin oof one hundred thousand men, to protect the frontiers of the State of New York against invasion, coming up for discussion, Mr. Raymond, of New York City, spoke substantially as follows: ( and at all times, adequate and full preparation for every probable emergency of the future. I concedo that the remarks already made upon this subject, the facts brought to the knowledge of the House, especially in the able speech of the gentleman from Ulster (Mr. Pierce), as well as in the further remarks of the gentlemen from St. Lawrence and Clinton, do establish this point, that our country is not adequately provided for defence. I think no one can claim, in the light of the information submitted to this committee, that we are fully prepared for the possible, or even for the probable, emergencies that the future has in store for us. I think, therefore, that this defect should be remedied, promptly and effectually. Our frontier should be put in a position of perfect and complete defence- and the General Government should do it. The duty is explicitly devolved upon the General Government by the Constitution to raise and support armies, to suppress insurrection, to maintain a navy, to repel invasion, and to make all preparations that may tend to make its action in war effective. It- is, therefore, the duty of the General Government to put the northern frontier of the United States in a state of defence- not alone the frontier of New York, but that of the entire Republic. The General Government should make these defences sufficient to meet all the probable emergencies of the immediate future- and I am happy to be able to say that the government of the United States has taken the preliminary steps, i Mr. Chairman: I desire to make some remarks upon the bill before the committee. I do not know whether I can promise that those remarks shall be brief, or very rigidly confined to the specific provisions of the act under discussion- for the debate has taken a very wide range, though not wider, perhaps, than the suggestions, if not the provisions, of the bill itself would warrant. The title of the bill, An Act to provide for the public defence is one which of itself com mends the bill very strongly to the loyalty and patriotism of every member of this House- and if any member shall be led to oppose it, I am C3rtain that the reason for such hostility will not be found ia the general objects which that bi Ppresents, but in some of the specific provisions by which those objects are to be attained. Most surely, sir, I am one of the first and foremost, and trust I always shall be so, not only to concede, but to claim, that our country shall be at all times in a position for adequate defence against foes, foreign or domestic. There is no maxim that has been more honored, or is more worthy of honor, than this, that In time of peace we must prepare for war. We must have fortifications and troops, munitions of war, an organized army, and a sufficient navy- and if at any time we are deficient in these preparations for national defence, it becomes us at once, without hesitation, to remedy that deficiency. Whatever of this sort, however, is required, should not be done in so ostentatious a manner as to invite hostility or seem like menace- nor should it be so done as to impose excessive burdens upon the People for whose protection it is designed. But we should have, in every case, towards this end, and is engaged in preparing a- bill embodying the necessary appropriations.
