This important document was laid before
our readers on.tiaturday last, and has doubt
less ere tine:received an attentive penis
Althonglt vOlmoiroine in length, it is a i state
paper of great clearness, an I by far the,tnus4
able document that the present Executive has
given to the nation, and We do not !plow but
we may say that it is equal to any which has
heretofore' ematmted _from the sante

The leading feature of the, Message is the
war with- Mexico, and on this subj.ct the
President is clear' and explicit. We think
after reading ft;'our friends, the federalists,
will have no excuse for asking the objects for
which the war is prosecuted as they are plainly
stated and firmly insisted on, his positions
will be \ read with lunch interest by all whit 11c
knowledge the justness of the war, owl con
tend for its prosecution tint] we have obtain
ed an honorable petice, together with in lent-
Mu fur the past, and ttecuritydar-the
and they also cannot fail to prove signal refit
tationsito the calumnies and falsehoods of the
Cliays, the corwins, 'the Websters, the Gree
ley's, and tlfeir train of Meli:an sympathisers,
who have cdtitin tally gtigmatizei it ass cruel,
barbarous, ,unjost an I Go dahhored war, wa
led fur cottquest by ihe slave power of the
South against an mmlE:milk and much aris
e.] neighboring republiC. •
Thu President still maintains his position,
an 1 ‘‘e. think .soccessfulty too, Ut it the war
was forced upon us by Mexico herself. In•
deed, we see 110 ut her p r4itioa to be taken;"un-_
less, like Mr. Clay, we assert that Congress
- altnost tmanimously legislated a lie. no al.?
maintains that in all the acts of legislation by
,Congress in regard to the war; the future ac
quisition of territory as in lem tiny 11114,6 1 mi
kept steadily in view, aml justly says thdt Any
peace that-does not provide for arch
I ion will be disgraceful alike to the govern
ment and the people. lie canhot therefore
consent to with ;raw oar army from the con
quests already :Leine% e,l either to the east bank
of the Rio Grande, as has.been contended for
by those who
,Ma s isi ter the war unjust, nor to
withdraw it to an established line and then
endeavor to maintain that line, as has been
proposed by Mr.., Calhoun and his friends.—
We have neither time nor room to give a sy
nopsis of the able slid conclusive arguments
presented in the Me-sage against the adop-
Con of this defensive line policy Of Mr. Cal
houn and his followers. - They are, we think.
conclustve. and if any of our readers have not
pernsed them with attention, we now ask them
'to do so. same remark is eqoally appli

The important bearing of this measure upon
the attainment of just terms of peace,
obvious.. The accimitt given in the mes
sage, of the measure:: adopted in purAnauce of
this policy, tviit be read, we doubt not, with
general interest told approbation. In ca,e
the prosecution of the war in this manner
