stotes:—ltorieing kethellouse of itepresantatives,
i n answer to the resolution of that body, panted, on
the 21st of December last, the accompanying re
ports of Heeds of Departments, which contain all
she official information in the possession of the
Executive asked for by the resolution.
On coming into office, I found the military com
mandant of the department ot Chlifornia enrcisin,g
•the functions of a Cavil Governor id that Territory
sod left, as I was, to act under the treaty of Guade
loupe Hidalgo, Wiffiolt the' aid - of eny legislative
p r ovistonestablishing a gOvernment in that Territo
ry, I thought it best not to disturb the arrangement
made under my predecessor, until Congress should
take some action on the subject. '1 therefore did
not interfere with the powers of the military com
mandant, who continued to exercise the, functions
I did not hesitate to express to the people o:those
territories my desire, that each territory should, if
prepared to comply with the requisitions of the Con
stitution of the united States;form a plan of a State
Constitution, and tubmit the same to Congress,
with a prayer for admission into the Union as a
State ; but I did not anticipate, suest, nor author
ize, the establishment of any such Government,
without the assent of Congress, nor did I authorize
any government agent or officer to interfere with
nor.exercise any influence or control over the elec
tion of delegates, or over any convention, in ma
king or niodilying their domestic institutions, or
any of the provisions of their proposed Constitution ;
on the contrary, the Instructions Riven by my orders
were, that all measures of domestic policy Must
originate solely with' themselves—that while the
Executive was desirous to protect and de fe nd them
in the formation cif any govemmerN republican in
its character, to be at the proper lime submitted to
Congress—yet it was to be distinctly understood
that the plan of such a government must, at the
same time, be the result of their own deliberate
choice, min' originated with themselves, without the
interference of the Executive.
I am unable to give any information as Jo 'laws
passed by any supposed government in California,
or of any census taken in either of the tertitones
mentioned in the resolution, as I have no mforma
tion.on these subjects, as already stated. I have
lo t disturbed the arrangements which I found bad
e wted under my predecessor. In endorsing an
early application by the people of the territories for
a tmissuut, as stated, 1 was actuated principally by
an earnest desire to arum) to the wisdom and pain
nu<tn of Congress the opportunity of avoidinr , an
dissenions among the people of the. United
Cider the Constitution every State has the right
of establishing, and, from time to time, altering its
municipal lea a and domestic institutions, it:Open
dently of every other State, and of the general gov.
eminent, subject only to this propositions and guar
maces expressly set forth in tne Constitution of the
United Stales. The subjects thus lett exclusively
to the revective States, were not designed or ex•
pected ID become topics of national agitation. Still,
as ender the Constitution, Congress has power to
make all needful rules and regulations respecting
the territories of the United States.
Every new acquisition of territory has led to di;,.
cessions on the question whether the system of in
volunta-y servitude, which prevails in many of the
Sates sliceild or should not, be prohibited in that
territory The periods of excitement from this
cause, which have heretofore occurred, have been
safely pa-eel ; but during the interval of whatever
length which may elapse before the admission of
the terfitones ceded by Mexico, as States, it ap
pears probable that similar excitement will prevail
wan undue extent. Under these circumstances,
1 thought, and hill think, was my duty to
Endeavor to put it in the power of Congress, by the
adinission of California and New Mexico as States,
to remove all occasion for, the unnecessary agita
tion of the public mind. It is understood :that the
people of the western part of California have form
ed a plan of a State Constitution, and will soon sub-
In t the same to the judgment of Congress, and ap-,
ply for admission as a state. This course, on their
part, though in accordance with my wish, was not
adopted exclusively in crinsequence of any expres
sion of my wishes, inasmuch tut measures tending
to this end bad been promoted by the officers sent
there by my predecessor, and were already in ac
tive progress of execution before any communica
tion from me reached California. If the proposed
constitution shall, when submitted to Congress, be
laurel-tote in compliance with the requisitions of
the constitution of the United States, I earnestly
recommend that it Way liseelve thetatalon of Con
ThSpatt of California not incloded le the pro
posed State of that name, is believed to be unin
habited, except in a settlement of our countrymen
lathe vicinity of Salt Lake.
A claim has been advanced by the State of Tex
as to every large portion of the most gopulous dig- ,
'net ok:he ternioryiecommonly designated by the
name df New Mexico. if the people of New Slexi
co had formed a plan of State government for that
Territory, as ceded by the treaty of Guadeloupe
/hidalgo, and had been admitted by Congress an a
State, our constitution would have afforded the
means of adjustment of the question
of boundary With Teias to a judicial decision. At
present, however , no tribunal has the pow
er of-deciding that question, and it remains for Coo
lness to devise some mode for its adjustment.
Meanwhile, I submit to Congress the question,
whether it would be expedient, before such ,adjust
meet, to establish a territorial government, Which,
by including the district so claimed, would , W hich,
decide the . question adversely to the State of
Telas--excluding it, winkl decide it m het favor.
1 3 my opinion such a course would not be expedi
ent ; especially as the people of this territory still
enjoy the benefit and protection of their municipal
laws, originally difivecl from Mexico, and have a
imlitaty torte moped there to protect them against
the !flatus. It is undoubtedly true, that the prop
erty, lives, liberty and religion of the people of
New Mexico, are better protected than they ever
were before the treaty of session. Should Con-
Vele,. when California shall present herself for in
corporation into the Union, annex licondition to her
admission as a State affecting her domestic institu
tions, contrary to the wishes of her people, and
even compel her temporarily to comply with it, yet
the State could change her constitution at any time
,after admission, wren to her it should seem expos
went.. It i s to b e expec t e d a n y attempt to deny to
the people of the State the right of self-government,
m a matter which peculiarly affects themselves,
wit infallibly be regarded by them as an invasion
of their rights; and upon the principle laid down
in our own Declaration of Independence, they will
tenainly be sustained in their resistance against it

on the 18th of January. inst., we the undersigne4,
were appointed a Committee to solicit aid in build
ing a church and school house, to be located in this
Borough for the benefit of the colored people of this
cr-onty; and as we feel deeply the importance of
this enterprise to the end we have in view, of ad
vancing our moral, religions and intellectual culture,
and as our numbers are few and our means inade
quate, we take this method of appealing to the lib
erality of the white citizens of Bradford fur assist.'

which Providence
,bas placed them , they will be
mindful of those upon whom His bounty has been
more sparingly bestowed, and that they will give ns

improvement or our condition.
