The Federal Pinnaces—Condition and
Prospects of the Treasury
In - view of the. early adjournment, I desire
to call the attentiOn of' Congress to the pres=
ent condition of the Government.
In my annual report I estimated that there
would be a balance in the treasury l at the
end of the present fiscal year, of $426,875 67,
which Would have required a deficiency in
our resources of five millions of dollars to be
provided for—as that amount is necessary, at
all times, to be in the treasury, for its prompt
and successful operation. This estimate was
based Upon an expenditure limited to the ap
propriations then authorized by law. Since
that time, the demands upon the treasury,
for the present fiscal year, have been in
creased by legislation to an amount not far
below ten millions of dollars. Another im
portant element of that estimate was the prob
able receipts from customs and other sources
during the then three remaining quarters of
the fiscal year.
The actual receipts for that period, it is
now believed will fall ten millions below that
estimate—attributable to the fact that the
trade and business of the country have not
recovered as rapidly from the effect of the
late revulsion as was then anticipated.
Owing to these causes the twenty millions
loan of treasury notes, authorized by the act
of December 23, 1857, will be exhausted in
supplying the deficiencies in the treasury for
the present fiscal year.
We shall commence the next fiscal year
dependent entirely upon the current receipts
into the treasury, to meet all demands from
In reply to a call upon the beads of the dif
ferent departments, I have received official
information the sum of $37,000,000 will be
probably called for during the first two quar
ters of the next fiscal year. This sum does
not include such amounts as may be appro
p:lated by Congress over and above the esti
mates submitted to them by the departments,
and I have no data upon which to estimate
for such expenditures. Upon this point Con
gress is better able to form a correct opinion
than I am.
To meet these expenditures it is not pru
dent to rely upon receipts into the treasury,
estimated upon the too rapid revival of trade
and business. I believe that we may safely
calculate upon receipts, during that period
from all sources, of $25,000,00. Looking
to this state of things, I recommend that au
thojitybe given to this department to supply
any deficiencies that may arise in meeting
the demands upon the treasury by au addi
tional loan not exceeding $15,000,000.
In view of the amount of treasury notes al
ready issued, I recommend a loan for that
amount to be negotiated for a period of not
more than ten years, at a rate of interest not
exceeding six per centum.
I have confined this inquiry to the two first
quarters of the next fiscal year, as Congress
will re-assemble before the close of the second
quarter, and it will be time enough. then,
should it ""oeconfe necessary, to provide fur fu
-Wire contingencies, that cannot now be fore
Ido not recommend any measure for in
creased taxation. It would be unwise at this
time to attempt a modification of the tariff act
of March 3, 1857, for the reasons given in
my annual report to Congress. Sufficient
time has not elapsed . to test the effects of that
act upon the revenue, considering the condi
tion of the country during the period of its
operations. In addition to this consideration
neither the receipts nor the expenditures of
the Government should be estimated for in
the future upon the basis of its present re
ceipts and expenditures. The former have
been, and still are, too seriously affected by
the late revulsion to justify a policy of le
gislation based upon a probable continuance
of this state of things for any considerable
period of time.
The latter have been so greatly increased
by causes of a like temporary character as to
preclude, with equal propriety, the policy of
considering them as a basis for estimating fu
ture expenditures. The most prominent of
these temporary causes is the Utah expedi
tion, which, it is hoped, will not reach beyond
the end of the next fiscal year. During the
period of an overflowing treasury a system of
expenditure was inaugurated in the building
of cutom houses, post offices, court houses,
and other public works, which, fortunately
for the country, has been checked by the ex
hausted condition of the treasury. The time
thus given for a more thorough and rigid in
quiry into the necessity and propriety of these
expenditures, it is confidently believed, will
lead to wise and salutary reforms. By re
trenchments in other branches of the public
service can, and I have no doubt will be ef
fected. Attention should be directed more to
the reduction of expenditures than to an in
crease of taxation to remedy the evils of an
excess of expenditures over the means of' the
Government. A full treasury is an unpropi
tious element in the work of retrenchment
and reform. If measures should be now
adopted to provide the treasury permanently
with a sum equal to the present demands
upon it, it might relieve the Government from
some of its embarrassments, but would great
ly weaken the effort to restrain the Govern
ment to an economical expenditure of the
public money.
The revival of business, which cannot be
much longer delayed, will, I am confident,
insure from the present tariff a sufficient rev
enue for the support of the Government in or
dinary times.
Extraordinary expenses, rendered necessa
ry by causes equally extraordinary, always
being of a temporary character, should be
provided for in a like temporary manner.
This principle is too . plain to require argu
ment or illustration ; it is only necessary to
call attention to it to command the approval
of every intelligent mind.

Exciting News from Xansas,
via BOONSVILLE, May 2Gth.
A stage has just arrived from Lawrence,
bringing the Republican "extra," which con
tains a letter dated from Moneka, L-inn coun
ty, on the 24th, giving an account of the al
leged perpetration of a daring outrage. The
letter states that on the 19th a party of pro
slavery men, from Missouri, came into the
trading post, situated on the road from Fort
Scott to Leavenworth, (where it crosses the
Osage,) and took two men, named Andrews
and Campbell, prisoners.
The band then marched forward, and far
ther up captured a Mr. Stillwell, recently
from lowa, and a man named Reed, and con
tinued on the road towards Kansas City, fill
they had taken twelve men prisoners.
The party then halted in a deep ravine,
when the prisoners (with the exception of
Mr. Andrews, who had been dismissed from
custody) were formed in a line and fired upon.
Five of them were killed, namely:—Messrs.
Stillwell, Ross, Colchester, Robinson, and
Campbell, and six were wounded.
After the accomplishment of this bloody
work the band rode of.
The affair had created intense excitement
at Lawrence and the vicinity, and a force was
being organized to pursue the perpetrators of
the outrages.
GeneraLLane was at Lawrence, but it was
not known whether he would participate in
the pursuit.
The contested probate judgeship was de
cided to-day, by Judge Lecompte, in favor of
Mr. Gardner, and adverse to Mr. Perkins.
ST. Louis, May 27.—The Westport corres
pondent of the Republican gives a totally
different version of the affair reported from
From this account it appears that Capt.
Hamilton and some twenty others, who had
been driven from Lynn county by Mont
gomery's men, after placing their families in
safety in Missouri, determined to return to
the Territory to look after and protect their

on the morning of the 10th, the party station
ed at that place mistaking them for Mont
gomery's men, came out to meet them, when
they were all taken prisoners by Hamilton's
Prom one of the prisoners Capt. Hamilton
learned that the robbers (Montgomery's band)
were stationed at the Snyder's, a fortified
house, a short distance from Chouteau's post.
Under promise that they would return home,
the prisoners were released and dismissed.
Captain Hamilton's party then proceeded
to the Snyder house, which is situated in a
ravine, flanked by rocked alls. Dividing
into two parties, they approached it in oppo
site directions, when hearing a gun fired on
the opposite side of the hill, they charged on
the spot, when they discovered the men whom
they had first released. The latter had par
tially armed themselves at a neighboring
house, and taken a short cut to Snyder's
A fight ensued, resulting in the death of
ten of the robbers, among whom was Capt.

missioners, before whom his prisoners are
In a few minutes, the main force in Sny
der's house rushed to the woods and escaped.
The correspondent of the Republican, who
gives the above account, distinctly states that
not a Missourian took part in the affair, and
that Hamilton's party was solely composed of
the men who had been driven from the Ter
ritory a few days before.
Further Depredations by .Ifonlyomery's Kan
sas Banditti—Alleged invasion of Missouri
—The Governor l'etittoned—llnen of But
ler, _Kansas, Burned.
Sr. Louis, May 28.—The Jefferson City,
Mo., correspondent of the Republican states
that a petition had been received by Govern
or Stewart from a number of citizens of
Bates and Cass counties, Missouri, asking
that measures be taken for their protection
against Montgomery's Kansas Banditti, who
had invaded Missouri, committed various rob
beries and outrages in the above-named coun
ties, and were preparing fur a more extensive
foray into the State.
The Leavenworth correspondent of the
same paper says that Montgomery's men
burned the town of Butler, in Kansas, on the
21st inst.
The "Retired Physician."
It appears that Dr. James, the "retired
physician, whose sands of life have nearly
run out," has retired and run out from the
scenes of his labors, leaving behind him a
disconsolate police and an unhealed world.
Not even his famous Cannibis Indica, or East
Indian Hemp, which had saved his only
daughter from the grave, was able to arrest
the mysterious prowess by which his shadow
grew less and less, until it entirely disap
peared. His "sands of life" he has, howev
er, converted into sands of gold, and the pos
session of one hundred thousand dollars con
soles him for his compulsory flight from the
gaieties of New York. The " retired physi
cian" is not the only masquerade in which
the departed Brown—his real name—has fig
ured. He was also 11. Monsett, who taught
people to changelnercury into gold ; he was
Prof. Jas. T. Horne, who advertises that he
will show anybody the way to make $l,OOO
a year, if not more, upon the receipt of a
certain sum in postage stamps, which, coming
duly to hand, the applicants are sent a recipe
for the manufacture of artificial honey, and
the right to sell it in any county which the
dupe may select, the two costing $5. The
enterprising Brown is also Madame Julie
who has lately received from France
some splendid cosmetics. These facts have
just been brought to light by the New York
police, who are now in eager pursuit of the
retired and retiring physician. It appears
that there was no Cannibis Indica in the
medicine of Brown, but merely a compound
of liquorice, slippery elm decoction, and hon
ey, costing sixteen cents, bottle and all, for
which ho charged $2. His "Regulating and
Purifying Pill," and "Excelsior Ointment of
India," were made on the same principle,
and sold for as many dollars as they cost him
cents. The most magnificent of his cosmet
ics, " The Milk of Roses awl Extract of El
der Blossoms," turns out to have been a mix
ture of magnesia and alcohol, costing him
about eight cents—price $2 a bottle. It re
mains to be seen under what new disguise
the "retired physician" will make his next
appearance before the public.

The British Outrages—lmportant Reso-
/ution in the Senate.
Mr. Mason, of Virginia, from the Commit
tee on Foreign Relations, to whom was re
ferred the resolution inquiring whether ad
ditional legislation is necessary, to place
power in the hands of the Executive, to ob
tain redress for the recent British aggres
sions, submitted a report, the substance of
which is that official statements show a suc
cession of acts of aggression by British cruis
ers in the Gulf of Mexico, so marked and ex
traordinary as to have awakened the indig
nation of the country. Vessels under our
flag, pursuing a lawful commerce, have been
fired into, stopped and interrogated as to the
cargo, destination, crew, &c. No less than
fifteen American ships in the harbor of Sa
o-ua la Grande, and six on the high seas have
been officially reported, each arrival bringing
additional facts of the aggressions of the
same power on our flag. It has hitherto
happened that in isolated cases where simi
lar aggressions have occurred through mis
conception, the United States has been con
tented to accept a disclaimer of intent, but
the continued and persevering character of
these outrages is such as to arouse the indig
nation of the country, and to require arrest
at once, and to end at once and forever, the
continuance of such indignities. The slave
trade is alleged as an excuse. The commit
tee will not discuss that question. It is suffi
cient that the United States, though often in
voked, refuses to recognize the right of po
lice. They rest on the principle that a ma
rine under its flag cannot he visted or ques
tioned without - its consent. And the com
mittee deem this a fit occasion to declare it
as the principle of the United States, admit
ting of no reserve or qualification, and to be
maintained at any cost.
They admit no right of visitation, far less
of sear3h. Such have no foundation in law
or comity, and cannot be tolerated by any
sovereign power without a derogation from
her sovereignty. The infraction of sover
eignty consists in the visitation. The best
American and English authorities, Stowell,
for instance, so decide, founding it t-
.ng _ on two
Firstly, the equality of all independent
States. Secondly, the comity of the sea as a
Indignant as the American people are, and
ought to be, at these aggressions, yet their
occurrence will afford the opportunity to end
them at once and forever, and the committee
refrain from recommending any further legis
lation, only from the reason that the Presi
dent has already ordered all the available
navy to the infested waters, with orders to
protect our flag.
It is believed that this measure will be ser
viceable for the present in stopping these
outrages. The subject has also been brought
to the notice of the offending power, - both
through the minister at London, and the
minister at Washington. They cannot, there
fore, till a reply is received from Great Brit
ain, decide on any measure that can be a
guarantee for the future, for nothing short of
that will satisfy the American people. The
committee, therefore, while refraining from
recommending present legislation, have unan
imously ,
ReBolved That American ships at sea, Un
der the flag, remain under the jurisdiction of
the country to which they belong, and, there
fore, that any visitation or molestation is an
infraction of the sovereignty of the United
Resolved, That these aggressions demand
such unequivocal explanation from Great
Britain as shall prevent their occurrence for
ever, in future.
Resz)l red, That the committee approved of
the action of the Executive, and are prepared
to recommend such future legislation as cir
cumstances may require.
Destructive Freshet at the West
The Cincinnati papers of Wednesday are
filled with accounts of a grdat freshet in that
vicinity, which was preceded by a tremen
dous rain on Sunday and Monday. Several
streets were overflowed ; Mill Creek bottom
covered with water for several miles; out
houses, fences, bridges, and everything else,
swept away; railroads greatly damaged; the
Whitewater Canal nearly ruined, and other
property of various descriptions totally de
stroyed, involving the loss of thousands of
dollars. At Wheeling the creek was also
overflowed, and no little damage done. At
Pittsburg and vicinity the freshet was very
destructive. The Gazette of Tuesday, says;
" The rise in the Monongahela was so rap
id and great as to cut off the steamboat com
munication between here and Brownsville, it
being impossible for the boats to pass under
the Monongahela City bridge. There were
consequently - no arrivals or departures yes
terday, and we are without intelligence from
the various points above. We earn, how
ever, that the destruction of property is large.
One pair of coal boats went over the first
dam yesterday morning, and several barges
and the wreck of several coal boats went
past during the morning, which were proba
bly wrecked on the second darn. One loaded
coal boat, belonging to O'Connor, slipped her
moorings and ran on the ways, where she
sunk. Six barges, tied near the bridge, some
of them ladened with coal, were carried off,
along with coal boats from a short distance
further up the bank of the river. Lumber
of various kinds was carried down in im
mense (plan tities, one gentleman alone losing
nearly a million feet. The loss of lumber
alone is estimated at $50,000.
The banks of the Allegheny were lined
with rafts and lumber drawn out ready to be
hauled away. Not much of the latter was
carried away, but several rafts broke from
their moorings and passed down.
The people on the lower part of Allegheny
City were getting alarmed, and many were
moving out to get out of the way of the ad
vancing river. On Wood street, in this city,
those whose cellars are connected with the
sewer which empties into the river at the
foot of that street were removing their goods,
fearing an eruption of water.
We learn by passengers on the railroad,
that the Conemaugh was high and rising
fast. The Loyalhanna was over its banks,
carrying off fences, cattle, and everything
moveable. Turtle Creek had spread all over
the bottom-lands along its course, and was
over the bridge at the old turnpike crossing.
ir-f - frA large elk passed through Tunkhan
nook, Pa., one clay last week, destined for
Philadelphia, where, we
. understand, it had
been sold for the sum of *l,OOO. The owner
represented its weight at six hundred pounds,
(nearly as heavy as a small horse,) and would
trot a mile in two minutes and-a-half. It
was broke to the harness and would drive
well in a buggy. We learn it was taken
from the wilds of Nebraska, and is only two
years old.
Horrors of the African Coast.
[Correspondence of the New York Times.]
U. S. Slfir DALE,
Porto Praya, Cape de Verds, Apr. 11,'58.
The Dale arrived in this port yesterday, af
ter a lengthened and disastrous cruise on the
Coast of Africa. The Dale left these Islands
on the 18th of August last, and has been on
the coast for a period of eight months.—
During this time we have undergone many
hardships from rough weather, oppressive
heat, sickness, death, and scarcity of provi
sions, the last being felt most severely, ow
ing to the impossibility of obtaining any sup
plies upon the coast.
At Monrovia, on our way up, we obtained
a quantity of bread, but for this we should
actually have starved ; and such bread ! .It
was" not fit to be served out as a "Navy ra
tion," and was thrown overboard when we
sighted land and saw the storehouse.
Our passage from Monrovia to this place,
of 33 days, was particularly severe ; we lost
our first lieutenant, and had eighty cases of
fever on board. The weather was unusually
rough; rain plentiful and squalls frequent
and dangerous. The only two remaining of
ficers (two lieutenants having been dispatched
to the States in a prize) being alternately
upon the sick list, the boatswain and two sea
men from before the mast were obliged to do
the duty of lieutenants, as officers of the deck,
with scarcely a sufficient number of men to
work the ship. Besides, our provisions were
short—so short, indeed, hat upon our arrival
yesterday our stock consisted of only four bar
rels of beef to feed 150 souls, had we been so
unfortunate as to be blown off.
The remains of Lieut. T. Lee 'Walker were
this day interred with " honors of war."----
The funeral was attended by the officers of
the ship, the marine guard, and a division of
" blue-jackets."
An incident of the treatment of American
citizens in these parts came to our knowledge in
Benguela. Two American seamen had been
confined in Benguela during eight months,
for an offence alleged to have been committed
in the Little Fish Bay. Upon inquiry by the
Dale, it was found that the authorities could
not prove any charge against them, and on
proceeding' to Little Fish Bay, (a voyage of
thirteen days,) no evidence whatever could
be hatched up by the Portuguese. Com
mander Mcßlair immediately returned to
Benguela, and demanded their release with
in twenty-four hours, intimating that, unless
complied with, he would land 100 bluejack
ets and take them. They were soon along
side. One of the unfortunates, a Fall River
boy, of 10, sickened and bleached by his
dungeon, was sent home in an American
vessel from Monrovia on the ith of March.
The other joined the Dale. There is no
American consul at Benguela.
The flag-ship Cumberland is now at Ma
deira, having left this place last January.
If the deadly character of the African cli
mate was properly known at the Navy De
partment, it cannot be doubted that fifteen
months would be considered a sufficient cruise
on the coast. There is no recreation for the
mind, no exercise for the body, nothing to
eat, and no where to go. No cities to visit;
no civilization; no churches; no divine wor
ship. Wo have not yet seen the Message of
the President or the Navy Report. To be
kept in such a condition, fur two years, will
make a man a heathen. Yet such is the fate
of the Navy officer. Who wants a commis
sion ?

A statement having appeared in various
quarters intimating that the Albion newspa
per stands in some connection with the Brit
ish legation at 'Washington, there is also good
authority for asserting with confidence, that
the British legation has no correspondence
or any relations whatever with that or any
other journal in the United States.
The Union of this morning urges the im
portance of strengthening the National de
fences. It is persuaded that while the Ad
ministration is deeply sensible of its duty to
protect the people from actual aggression or
in anticipation of danger, there is a gross in
sufficiency of preparations for the contingency
of war.
WAsnixczox, May 29.—The excitement
with reference to the course of the British
cruisers continues unabated. In the debate
in the Senate to-day all parties seem to vie
with each other in denunciation of the con
duct of the British, and in readiness to re
sist even to the point of war. The State De
partment has not received any further ac
counts of British vessels-of-war overhauling
our merchantmen.

green, left here this morning for the Gulf.—

Lord Napier informed a Senator to-day
that the British Government would undoubt
edly apologize for the recent outrages, but at
the same time it is determined to put an end
to the slave trade in Cuba, and to that end
will enforce a strict blockade of the coasts of
that island.
Price of Living in Philadelphia
The rainy weather which has prevailed
during the past week, has had the tendency
to keep back supplies of produce generally,
but the receipts, particularly of vegetables,
are fully up to the demand. Poultry and
game of all descriptions have been very
scarce, and prices rule comparatively high.
Of beef, mutton, and pork, there is an abun
dance, but prices continue at about our last
quotations. The receipts of potatoes from
the West have fallen off and there is more
demand for them. The wholesale prices are
65(ir)75e for the best Ohio and Pennsylvania
Mercers, and 500355 e for mired and round
lots. A. cargo of Nova Scotia potatoes is
selling in lots from 50c to $1 bushel.—
Eggs are not so abundant, and prices have
advanced to 18cts'e. dozen. Of fish there is
a good assortment, and prices, particularly
for porgies, are very low. Spring vegetables
from New Jersey are coming in rapidly, but
beets, cucumbers and cabbages are scarce
and high. The same remark will apply to
strawberries, which sell at 311@,50ets
