1829. CORRUPTION, Congress.—

I said
that he [President Washington] must know,
and everybody knew, there was a considerable
squadron in both [Houses] whose votes were
devoted to the paper and stock-jobbing interest,
that the names of a weighty number were
known, and several others suspected on good
grounds. That on examining the votes of
these men, they would be found uniformly
for every Treasury measure, and that as most
of these measures had been carried by small
majorities, they were carried by these very
votes: that, therefore, it was a cause of just
uneasiness, when we saw a legislature legislating
for their own interests, in opposition to
those of the people.—
