Our relattoos with the Indian tribes are of a
f av orable character. The policy of removing
t h e m to a country designed fur their permanent
resi d ence , west of the Mississippi and without
the limits of the organized States. and Territo
nas, is better appreciated by them than it was a
few years ago ; while education,is now attended

gr ound among them.

Cherokees are unhappily divided. Th e e ff orts of

there isms Pr no probability that this desirable
object can be accomplished without the aid of
farther legislation by Congress. I w ill at an
ear ly period of your session, present the subject
for your c onsideration, accompanied with an
exposition of the complaints and claims of the
several parties into which the nation is divided,
with a view to the adoption of such measures by
Congtess as may enable the Executive to do
justice to them respectively, and put an end, if
I ,, a mie, to the dissensions which have long pre
:vatted, and still prevail, among them.
I - refer you to the report of the Secretary of
the Navy for the present condition of that branch
of the national defence ; and for grave sugges
tions, having for their object the increase of its
e ffi cie ncy and a greater economy in its manage-
mein. During the past year the officers and

manner. The orders which have been given

emment, until, it is believed, we are now second
to but . one Power in the world, and at no dist
ant day we shall probably be inferior to none.
Exposed as they must be, it has been a wise
policy to afford to those important interests pro
tection with our ships of war, distributed in the
great highways of trade throughout the world.
For mare than thirty years appropriations have
been made, and annually expended, for the gradu
al increase of our, naval forces. In peace our
navy performs the important duty of protecting

and to an efficient protection to our large and
increasing commerce, demands a corresponding
increase on our part. No country has greater
facilities for the construction of vessels of this
description than ours, or can promise itself great
er advantages from their 'employment. They
are arlitiiratity adapted to the protection of our
commerce, to the rapid transmission of intelli

now Inaccessible to vessels of greater draught,
and the practibtlity of constructing them in the
interior, strongly recommends that liberal appro
. Pria 6 sas should be made for this important ob
lea. Whatever may have been our policy in
the earlier stages of the government, when the
nation was in its infancy, our shipping interests
and ennonerce comparatively small, our resour
ces our population sparse and scarcely
evendinz beyond the limits of the thirteen States,
that policy must be essentially different now that
' We have grown from three to more than twenty
millions of people—that our commerce, carried
in our own ships, is found on every sea, and
that our tertiturial boundaries and settlements
Lave been so gteatly expanded.
Neither out commerce, nor our long line of
coast on the ocean and on the lakes, can be suc
cessfully defended against foreign aggression, by
means of fortifications alone. These are essen
led at important commercial and military points.
but our chief reliance for this object must be on
a trell-oreanized, efficient navy. The benefits
resulting from such a navy are not confined to
the it tlanticiStates. The productions of the in
terior which seep a market abroad, are directly
dependent on the safety and freedom of our corn

It has never been our policy to maintain large

The report of the Postmaster General, here-
with communicated, contains, a detailed state-
ment of the operatioturof his department during
the past year. It will be seen that the income
from postages will fall short of the expenditures
for the year between one and two millions of
dollars. This deficiency has been caused by the
reduction of the rates of postage. which was
made by the act of the third of March last: No,
principle has been more genenilly acquiesced in
by the people than that this Department should
sustain itself by limiting its expenditures to its
income. Congress ha never sought to make it
a source of revenue for general purposes. except
fora short period during the,last war with Great
Britian. nor should it ever become n charge on
the general treasury. If Congress shall adhere
to this principle. as I think they ought, it will
be necessary either to curtail the present mail
service, so as to reduce the expenditures. or Bo
modify the act of the third of March last, as to
improve its revenues. The extension of the
mail service, and the additional facilities which
will be demanded by the rapid extension and in
crease of population on our western frontier will
not admit of such curtailment as will materially
reduce the present expenditures.
In the adjustment of the tariff of postage! the
interests of the people demand, that the lowest
rates be adopted which will produce the necei.
rary revenue to meet the expenditures of the de-
partment. I invite the attention of Congress to
the suggestions of the Postmaster General on the
subject, under the belief that such a modification
of the late law may be made, as will yield suffi-
cizut revenue, without further calls on the Trea-
sury, and with very little change in the presets
rates of postage.
Proper measures have been taken, in pursu
suance of the act of third of March last, for the
establishment of lines of mail steamers between
this and foreign countries. The importance of
this service commends itself strongly to favors•
ble consideration
%lath the growth of our country, the public
business which devolves on the heads of the . se
veral Executive Departments has greltly increa
sed. In some respects the distribution of dmies
among them' seems to he incongruous, and many
of these might be transferred from (mei° anoth
er with advantage to the public interests. A
mote auspicious time for the consideration of
this subject by Congress, with a view to system
in the .organization of the several departments,
and a more appropriate division of the public
business, will no! probably occur.
The - most important duties of the State De
partment relate to our foreign affairs. By the
great enlargement of the family of nations, the
increase of our commerce, and the corresponding
extention of our. consular svatem. the business
of this department has been greatly 'increased.
In its present organization, many a subject of
domestic nature and consisting of details, is de
volved on the Secretary of-State, which do not
appropriately belong to the foreign department
of the government, and may properly be trans
ferred to some other department. One of these
grows out of the present state of the law con
cerning the Patent Office, which, a few years
since. was a subordinate clerkship, but has eb
come a distinct bureau, of great importance.—
With an excellent internal organizatiOn, it is
still connected with the State Department. In
the transaction of its business, questions of much
importance to inventors, and to the community,
frequently arises, which, by existing laws, are
referred for decision to a board, of which the
Secretary of State is a member These ques
tions are legal, and the connection which now
exists between the State Department and Pa ent
Office, may with great propriety and advantage,
be transferred to the Attorney General.
In his last unmial message to Congress.
Mr. Madison invited attention to a proper pro-
vision for the Attorney General, as an important
improvement in the executive establisfrieni.—
This recommendation was repeated by some of
his successors. The official dutiei of the At
torney General have been much increased with
'in a few years, and 1114MBce has become one of
great i!iportance. His duties may be still fur
ther increased with advantage to the public inte
rests. As an executive officer, his residence and
constant attention at the seat of government are
Legal qUestions involving important principles"
and large amounts of public money, are con
stantly teferred to him by the President and ex
ecutive departments, for his examination and de
cision. The public business under-his official
management before the judiciary has been so
augmented by the extension of our territory, and
the acts of Congreis authorizing suits against the
United States for large bodies of valuable public
lands, as greatly to increase his labors and re
sponsibilities. I therefore recommend that the
Attorney General be placed on a footing with
the heads of the other executive departments.
with such. subordinate officers provided by law
for his department, as may be required to dis
charge the additional duties which have or may
be devolved upon him.
Congress possesses the power of exclusive
legislation over the District of Columbia ; and
I commend the interest of its inhabitants to your
favorable consideration. The people of this dis
trict have no legislative body of their own, and
must confide their local as well as their general
interests to representatives in whose election
they hare no voice, and over whose official con
duct they hare no control. Each member cf
the National Legislature should consider himself
their immediate representative, and should be
the more ready to give attention to their interests
and wants, because he is not responsible to them.
'I recommend that a liberal and generous spirit
may characterize your measures in relation to
them. I shall be ever dispaied to show a lim
