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 that promise. 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 powerful." 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 cays : '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 that the difficulty may now be amicably adjusted 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 ii . 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 A c have thus given our readers an ab- Struct ot the leading points in the third .-iituuai -uessage ot 1'resident James Jiu- clianan an abstract as fair as we have been able to get it up, and certainly as lull as we can find room for.
