MESSAGE OF THU l'ltiaiDKNT.
Wabiiinoton, April 0. Tho follow
liip; Is tho President's Mossago transmit
ting tho report of tho San Domingo
To Iho Senalo nml Ilonso of Repre
sentatives: I havo tho honor to submit
to tho two Houses or Congress, tho re
port of Iho Commissioners appointed
In purstianco of the Joint resolution
approved Jan. 12, 1871. It will ho ob
served that this report moro than sus
tains all that I havo hcrotoforo said In
regard to the productiveness nnd health
fulness of IhoItepubllcofSun Domingo,
of.tho unanimity of tho peoplo for an
nexation to tho United States, nnd of
their pcacenblo character. It U duo to
tho publle as It certainly Is to myself,
that I should hero glvo all tho circum
stances which first led to tho negotia
tion of it treaty for tho annexation of
tho Republic of San Doinlimo lo tho
When I accopted the arduous nnd re
sponsible position which I now hold, I
did not dream of Instituting nny steps
for tho acquisition of Insular possess
ions. I believed, howover, that our In
stitutions were broad enough to extend
over tho entlroconllnent ns rapidly ns
other peoples might deslro to bring
themselves under our protection. I bo
llovcd further that wo should not permit
independent governments within tho
limits of North America to pasj from a
condition of Independence lo ono of
ownership or protection under an Kuro
pean power. Soon after my Inaugura
tion as President, I was waltcdupon by
an agent of President llaez with a pro
position to annex tho Republic of San
Domingo to tho United States. This
gentleman represented tho capacity of
tho Island, tho dcslro of tho people and
their character nnd habits, nbotit ns
they have been described by tho Com-mi.-sioucr.i,
whoso report accompanies
this message. Ho stated, further, that,
being weak in numbers nnd poor in
purse, they wero not capablo of devel
oping their great rccourccs; that tho
peoplo had no incentive to industry, on
account of tho lack of protection for
their accumulations, and that If not ac
cepted by tho United States, with tho
institutions which they loved abovo
thoso of any other nation, thoy woultl
be compelled to seek protection olsc
where. To theso btatements I mado no
reply, and gave no indication of what I
thought of tho proposition. In tho
course of llmo I was waited upon by a
second gentleman from Sun Domingo,
who mado tho samo representations,
nnd who was received In llko manner.
In view of the facts which had been
laitl beforo mo and witlt an earnest do;
slro to maintain tho "Monrou doctrine,"
I believo I would bo derelict In my
duty If I did not takomeasuros toascer
tain tho exact wish of tho Government
nnd inhabitants of tho Republic of San
Domingo in regard to annexation, and
commuiilcato tho Information to tho
peoplo of tho United States. Under tho
attending circumstances, I felt that if I
turned n deaf car to this appeal I might
in the futtiro bo Justly charged with a
flagrant neglect of tho public Interests
ami nn utter disregard of tho wclf.iro of
a uown-trodden race, praying for tho
blcsilngs of n freo and strong govern
ment, and for protection In tho enjoy
ment oftlm fruits of their own Industry.
Thoso opponents ot nntioxatlon who
have heretofore professed to bo pro emi
nently the friends of the rights of man
I believed would bo my most violent
ns'nllants if I neglected so clear a duty.
Accordingly, after having appointed
a Commissioner to visit tho Island, who
declined on account of sickness, I selec
ted a second gentleman, In whosa capac
ity, judgement, amt integrity I had
unbounded confidence. Ho visited San
Domingo, not totecuro or hasten annex
ntlim, but uuprijudlced and unbiased,
to learn all tho facts about tho Govern
ment, tho people, nnd tho resources of
that Republic. Ho went certainly its
well prepared to make an unfavorable
report ns n favornblo one, If tho facts
warranted it. Ills report fully corrobo

HiUsioners, and, upon Its receipt, I felt
that a sense of duty nnd a duo regard
for our great national interests required
mo to negotiate a tieaty for tho acqui
sition of thu Republic of Sail Domingo.
As soon as it beeamo publicly known
that such a treaty had been negotiated,
the attention of tho country was occu
pied with allegations calculated to pre
judice tho merits of the case, and with
aspersions upon thoao whoso duty had
connected them with It. Amidst tho
public excitement thus created, tho
treaty failed to receis'o the requlsito
two-thirds voto of tho Senato ami was
rejected, but whether the action of that
body was based wholly upon tho merits
of tho treaty, or might not have been
lu somo degrco iullucuccd by such un
founded allegations could not bo known
by tho people, becauso tho debates ot
tho Senate In secret session nro not pub
lished. Under theso circumstances I
deemed it duo to the ofllco which I
hold, and duo to tho character of tho
agents who had been charged with tho
Investigations, that such proceedings
would enable tho pcojilo to know tho
truth. A commission was therefore
constituted under tho authority of Con
grcss, consisting of gentlemen selected
with special reference to their high
character and capacity for the laborious
work entrusted to them, who wero In
structed to visit tho spot and report up
on tho facts, Other eminent citizens
wero requested to accompany tho com

havo tho benefit of their vlows, Stu

opinions, wero Invited to Join tho expe

only by tho capacity of tho vessel.
Tho inero rejection by thoSenntoof n

of tho President, or thoio employed by
him, tho case Is different. Indeed In
such caso tho honor of tho nation do-
mnnds Investigation. This has been ac
complished by tho report of tho Com
missioners herewith transmitted, nnd
which fully indicates tho purity of mo
tlvo nnd action of thoso who represent
ed tho United Slates In tho negotia
tion. And now my task is finished, nnd
with It ends nil personal sollcltudo un-
on tho subject. My duty being dono,
yours begins, nnd I gladly hand over
tho wholo matter of tho Judgment ol
tho American peoplo and of their rep
resentatives In Congress nssombled. Tho
facts will now bo spread beforo tho coun
try, and a decision rendered by that
tribunal whoso convictions so seldom
err, and against whoso will I have no
policy to enforce My opinion remain,
unchanged. Indeed, It Is confirmed by
tho report that Ibo Interests of our
country-fuid of San Domingo nllko In
vito the annexation of that Republic.
Jti view of tho differenco of opinion
upon this subject, I suggest that no ac
tion bo taken nt tho present session be
yond tho printing nnd general dissemi
nation of tho report. Ueforo tho next
session of Congress tho people will havo
considered tho subject and formed an
Intelligent opinion concerning It, to
which opinion, deliberately mado up,
It will bo Iho duty of every department
of tho Government to glvo heed, and
no one will moro chcorfully conform to
It than myself. It Is not only tho theo
ry of our Constitution that tho will of
tho people, constitutionally expressed,
Is Iho supremo law, but I havo over bo
lloved that all men nro wiser than nny

presentation of tho facts, shall dccldo
that tho annexation of this Republic Is
not desirable, every department of tho
Government ought lo acquiesce in that
decision. In again submitting to Con
gress a subject upon which public senti
ment has been divided, and which lias
been mado tho occasion of numerous
debates In Congress, ns well ns unjust
aspersions elsewhere, I may, I trust, bo
inuulgcd in a singlo remark. No man
can hopo to perform duties so delicato

tion of llaez. Tho Commissioners
found tho Baez Government In full and
peaceable possession of all parts of tho
Republic, except on tho Haytlen bord-
cr, which Is disturbed by Insurrectiona
ry leaders, aided by Hayticu intrig
uers. Whatever defects thcro might
havo been In tho original title of llaez
lo tho olllce, it win confirmed by the
National Convention anil ratified by
Tho Insurrections which still exist

Tho former of theso Is universally con
ceded to bo tho moro Important, but
neither lias u distinct Hag or it regular

nent of a clearly defined policy.
'lo tho surprise of tho Commission,
almost all parts of tho country, oven the
remotest, thu peoplo wero found to bo
familiar with tho question of annexa
tion to tho United States, and to havo
discussed it among themselves with in
telligence All classes In all parts of
the Republic wero consulted, and ev
erywhere thero was it general agree
ment In tho declaration thatlhelrpeaco
and prosperity Is In annexation to nnd
becoming part of the peoplo of tho Uni
ted States. This Is partially duo to the
prosenco In various parts of tho coun
try of small colonies of colored peoplo,
formerly from tho United States.
Tho osceedlngly small rroror,Ion
who opposed annexation could only bo
found by diligent Ecarch. Thoy nro
chiefly traders or agents of foreign
houses, whoao business would sutTer by
tho change. Tho rumors that thero aro
parties in various sections of tho coun
try ready to resort to desperate mea
sures against annexation, seem to bo
disproved by tho fact that tho Commis
sioners wero frco from tho shadow of
molestation during their sojourn, al
though they had nt no tlmo anything
lu the shapo of a guard. Tho condition
of tho people, the physical, mental and
moral condition of tho Inhabitants of
San Domingo was found to bo much
more advanced than had been anticipa
ted. The population Is generally of mixed
blood. Thu great majority, especially
along thoconst, nro neither puro black
nor pure whlto; thoy nro mixed In ov
cry concelvnblo degree. In somo pnrtH
of tho Interior considerable numbers of
tho whlto raco aro lo bo found, and gen
erally In tho mired raco tho whlto
blood predominates. Tho cultivated

with their descendants, now form n

60veral thousand persons. Theso nro
mostly Methodists nnd Baptists. They
livo nmong tho Catholics in peaco nnd
harmony. No intolerance or religious
persecution can bo discovered among
them. Tho peoplo nto generally poor,
living In cheap nntl humblo dwellings
In tho country almost every family

It Is very uncertain who may reap tho

though worked anciently, is nt present
but little known, and Invites patient
oxplorntlon nnd practical miners. Tho
sail deposits In tho mountains near
Neyba aro believed lo bo extensive and
valuable. Tho salt can bo quarried out
In largo transparent blocks, and a
chemical analysis mado for tho Com
mission shows It to bo of sulllclcnt pu
rity for commercial purposes.
Summarily nnd practically viowed
for ugrlculturnl purposes thcro aro live
classes of lands In Santo Domlugo,
First. Tho mountain slopes and val

by wooded valleys and groves contain
ing much excellent timber.
Third. Thorollliia plain of tho Ve

tho finest body of agricultural land on
Fourth. Tho dry lands aro liko n
portion of tho plain of Azua and tho
valley of tho Taquie, whero rain is
partly or wholly wanting from topo
graphical causes. These lands can bo
mado fertile by artificial irrigation.
Fifth. Tho red clay lands aro mostly
along tho coast and underlaid by carat-
lino limestone. Theso aro usually cov
ered with timber.
Tho Commissioners hero dovoto coid
sidcrablo spaco to setting forth the
richness of thu soil, an d tho varieties of
tropical producls sugar cane, coffee,

Tho climate on tho uplands is well
suited to emigrants from tho temperate
zones. On tho west sido of tho island
tho coast Is unhealthy, but clsowhero
tho sanitary condition Is very good
The popular Idea that tho Island Is
periodically llablo to yellow fever is en
llrely erroneous. Earthquakes aro rare,
but hurricanes not unfrcquent.
There aro several rivers, navlgabloby
light draft vessels ton considerable dis
tance In tho Interior. Resides thosplcn

barbers, generally accessible by vessels
of light draft.
The public debt, Including nil claims,
Is In round numbers, n Uttlo over $1,
600,000. Tho official statement of ro
celpts of the Government for 1S70,
shows it total of J772.000, tho Import

Tho Domlnleanaoveruuient hasmndo
no grant or concession of land to nny
foreign Government or nation except
tho United States.
Tho history of grants nnd concessions

quence oxlst between Dominica and

dary between Hayti and San Domingo
is tho old Spanish and French lino of
1777. When Iho Haytlctis wero driven

remained, as disputed territory, a coip

Tho Ronlcn Valloy, oast of thoso, and

overrun by both parties. Tho claim of
Hayti to the boundary of tho Geffrard

Altn Vela, is regarded ns preposterous.
Tho extent of territory within tiio old
boundary of 1777 is found by now and
careful computation to bo 22,212 equnro
miles. Tho portion of this republic ro
fcrrcd to ns having been mainly In
Hnytlcn occupancy, Is about 10,000
Tho Dominican government was
found willing to ngrco to tho terms of
tho treaty as now concluded, but not
ratified, nnd for tho only chaugo think
it fair that an account of Iho great nnd
unexpected cxpenso of tho government
nttcndlng tho delay that tho sum paid
for Samana and now duo bo not deduc
ted in the final settlement. It was also
ttgrccd by Dominica that ono-flflh of
tho public lands should bo sat asldo for
school purposes, prov'Jcd tho United
States would grant threo hundred thou
sand acres for an agricultural college.
Tho report concludes as follows :
Sin Domingo Is capabloof supporting
millions of people. Land Is cheap; lu
fertility it certainly equals and possibly
surpasses tho neighboring Islands, nnd
It Is even better suited to the production
of sugar nud coffee. It could supply
thu entire market of tho United Stales
with theso great West India staples.
In reviewing Iho wholo field of their
investigations, looking to tho Interests
of both divisions of tho Island, they are
firmly persuaded Hint tho annexation
of San Domingo to tho United Statc3
would bo hardly less beneficial to tho
Haytlen than to the Dominican people,
This benefit would nrlso llrst from the
example which would doubtless bo af
forded of n well-regulated, orderly nnd
prosperous Stalo, the great need of thnt
part of tho world, nnd which it has as
yet never seen ; n second and moro
direct benefit would nrlso from the
equitable establishment of n boundary

tho Spanish speaking nations upon that
Island nnd Its guaranteo by n strong
This would end tho exhausting bor
der warfare, which has been ono of tho
greatest curses of Ilaytl, ns well ns San
