Wc stated last week, that we could not
possibly publish the President's Message
without excluding much better matter, but
we promised to give our readers, in lieu
thereof, an abstract of its most important
points. e proceed, therefore, to fulfil
lhe 1 resident begins by expressing
gratitude to the Almighty, for the numer
ous blessings bestowed upon us durin"the
past year, including excellent health,
plentiful harvests, and geueral prosperity.
He then passes on to the occurrences at
Harper's Ferry and says :
'These events, however bad and cruel in
themselves, derive their chief importance
from the apprehension that they are but symp
toms of an incurable disease in the public mind,
which may break out in still more dangerous
outrag-es, and terminate at last in an open war
by the North to abolish Slavery in the South.
Whilfc, for myself, I entertain no such appre
hension, they ought to afford a solemn warn
ing to us all to beware of the approach of
danger. Our Union is a stake of such ines
timable Talne as to demand onr constant and
watchful vigilance for its preservation. In
this view, let me implore my countrymen,
North and South, to cultivate the ancient feel
ing of mutual forbearance and good will to
ward each other, and strive to allay the demon
spirit of sectional hatred und strife now alive
in the land. This advice proceeds from the
heart of an old public functionary whose ser
vice commenced in the last generation, among
the wise and conservative statesmen of thai
day, now nearly all passed away, and whose
first and dearest earthly wish is to leave his
country tranquil, prosperous, united, and
After briefly disposing of the Harper's
Ferry affair, the President goes on to con
gratulate Congress upon the "final" set
tlement, byhe Supreme Court of the
United States, of the question of Slavery
in the Territories. On this subject he
'The right ha3 been established of evcrv
citizen to take h
- - 1 I ' v ""J AIHU, ill-
eluding slaves, into the common Territories
belonging equally to all the States of the
Confederacy, and to have it protected there
under the Federal Constitution. Neither
Congress, nor a Territorial Legislature, nor
any human power has any authority to annul
or impair this vested right.
Had it been decided that cither Congress or
the Territorial Legislature possess the power
to annul or impair the right to property in
slaves, the evil would be intolerable'
The President says he has employed all
lawful means at his command to execute
the law against the African Slave Trade.
He has not discovered that any slaves have
been imported into the United States, ex
cept the cargo by the Wanderer, number
ing between three and four hundred. The
offenders have been prosecuted; "but not
with as much success as their crimes de
served." A considerable portion of the Message
is devoted to an argument against the re
vival of the Slave Trade, which the Pres
ident condemns for reasons both of hu
manity and expediency.
The ratification of the Chinese treaty,
and the visit of Minister Ward to Pekiu
are next referred to with satisfaction.
Our relations with Paraguay, France,
Russia, and all continental Europe, except
Spain, are also of the most friendly charac
ter. The latter refuses to pay the Cuban
claims of our citizens, amounting to 128.
C35.51, though their justice has been re
cognized by the Spanish Government.
The President recommends an appropri
ation by Congress to pay the Spanish
Government for the Amistad negroes, and
says that "the failure to discharge this
obligation has been employed by the Cab
inet of Madrid as a reason against the
settlement of our claims."
The San Juan difficulty with Great
Britain is dwelt upon at" Wtli Tl...
President is of opinion that the minion of
Gen. Scott has prevented a collision be-
tween the forces of the two

Mexico is next rcfeircd to, and the in
juries sustained in that distracted repub
lic, by American citizens, are urged by
the President as reasons for the passage of
A law authorizing him to employ "a suffi
cient military force to enter Mexico, for
the purpose of obtaining indemnity for
the past, aod security for the future."
lie suggcsU that, if this authority should
be granted him, a force of volunteers could
easily oe ra.sed, sunic.eut to enable" the
overument of lVesidcnt Juarez, now in !
possession of A'era Cruz, to reach the City
of Mexico, and extend its power over the
whole . Republic. He also requests from
Congress authority to establish military
posts across the Mexican line in Souora
and Chihuahua, and designates Arispe, in
Sonora, as a point where such a post is re
quired, to protect both Americans and
Mexicans against the Indians.
The President further asks that he may
be authorized to employ the Xavv for the
purpose of protecting the lives and prop
erty of American citizens passing across
the Central American Isthmuses.
The last Congress having gone out of
existence without making the required
appropriations lor the Post Office Depart
ment, the President dwells upon the em
barrassment thus created, and recommends
the passage of an election law securing
the perpetual existence of a full Congress,
so that in case of. emergency that bodv
may be called together without leaviii"
any htate unrepresented
The President also recommends the con
struction of a Pacific Railroad ; the re
duction ot Government expenditures to
the lowest practicable point, and the rais
ing ot additional revenue to meet antici
pated deficiencies, not by loan, but by an
increase ot the present duties on imports
And, in conclusion, he commends "to the
just liberality of Congress, the local in
terests ot the District of Columbia
