Tho suppression of the African slave trade
lias received the continued attention of the
Government. Tho brig Dolphin and schoo
ner Grampus, bavo been employed during
tho lastseasdn on the coast of Africa, for the
purpose of preventing such portions of that
trade as was said to be prosecuted under
tho American Hag. After cruising off those
parts of the coast most usually resortod to
by slavorj, until tho commencement of the
rainy season, these vessels returned to tho
United States for supplies, and have einco
been despatched on a similar sorvce,
From the reports of the commanding offi
cers, it appears that the trade is now prin
cipally carried on under Portuguese colorr;
anil they express tlio opinion that the ap
I. . ! r .1 . .
jiri'iiBiision oi iiicir presence on tne siavo
coatt has, in a great degree, arrested the
prostitution of tho American flag to this in
human purpose. It is hoped that, by con
tmuing to maintain this force in that quarter
nnd by the exertions of the officers in com-
maud, much will he done to nut a ston to
whatever portion of this traffic may have
uecn carrieu on nntior tho American llag.and
to prevent its use in a trade which, while it
violates tho laws, is equally an outrage on
tho rights of others and the feelings of hu
manity. Tho efforts of the several iroverii-
menls who aro anxiously sockin" to sun
press this traffic, must, howevor.be directed
against the facilities afforded by what ore
now recognized as legitimate commercial
pursuits, beforo that object can be fully ac
cnmplished. Supplies of provisions, water-
casus, merchandize, and articles connected
with the prosecution, of tho slave trade, nre,
it is understood, freely carried by vessels
of different nations to the slavo factories;
ana trie eilects ot the factors arc transported
openly Irom one slave station to another,
without interruption or punishment by
(r i uio naunns to wnicn tuny oolong,
unpaged in the commerce of that region. I
submit to your judgments whether this go
vernment, having been the first to prohibit,
hy adcqnalo penalties, the slave trade the
first to declare it piracy should not be the
first, also, to forbid to its citizans all trade
with tho slave factories on the coast of Af

PROSPECTUS FOR THE CONCHIES
SIONAL GLOBE AND APPENDIX.
These works will bo published by us during the
approaching session of Congress. They have hd
such u wide circulation in the United States, and
their usefulness and cheapness are so universally
acknowledged, that wc deem it unnecessary to give
a detailed account of what tho future numbers will
contain. Suffice it to say that they will be invalua
ble to all who feel an interest In the proceedings of
Congress. No other publication' gives them so full,
nor half so cheap. It is, indeed, iho cheapest pub
hcalton in the United States -perhaps In thowoild.
Our portion at the seat of Government enables us
to print them at so low a rate. Wc are compelled
to publish the proceedings of Congress in detail, for
our daily paper. This done, it requires, compara
tively, but a small additional cupcme to change them
to the forms of tho Congressional Globo and Appen
dix. If it were not for these chcumstanccs, wo
could not publish them for four limes the aura charg
ed. In somo parts of tho United Slates, tho white
paper, upon which these woiks are printed, would
seH for as much as wo charge for the publication.
Tho CosriRKssinNAr. Gloiik is made up of tho
daily proceedings of tho two Houses of Congress,
nnd the speeches of tho members condensed. The
yeas and nays on all important subjects are given.
It is publishhed as fast as tho business of tho two
Houses affords matter enough for a number. Eich
number will contain sixteen royal quarto pages, of
smill type. Wc expect to publish three numbers
for every two weeks of the session.
Tho Appesiiix contains tho speeches of tha
members, at full length, - written out by themselves;
and is printed in tho same form as tho Congression
al Globe. It is published as fast as the speeches can
bo prepared by the members.
Earh of theso works is complclo in itself. But
it is desirable for every subscriber to have both; be
cause, if there should be any ambiguity in the sy
uopsis of a speech in the Congressionel Globe, or
nny denial of its coriectness, it may bo removed at
once, by referring to the speech in the Appendix.
Indexes to both aro sent to subscribers as soon as
they can be prepared after the adjournment of Con
