Meeting of Congregg.-NllRtract of the
The second session of the thi f ffY-tltird Con
gress commenced on Monday last. The
Senate was called to order at 121 o'clock,
M., and thirty-seven Senators answer'•cd to
their names. • The Secretary read a letter
from Mr. Atchison,• of Missouri, stating that
he would be unable to be present for some
weeks •and offering his resignation its Presi
dent or the Began!. On motion, Gen. CA: , .;
was chosen President pro tem. Committees
were then appointed to inform the House and
and the President of the organization.
lii' 'louse organized at 12 o'clock. The
number of members pre n stritt was 197, After
organizing the Presidents' Mess'ago was re
ceived and read. IV't- give the following
synopsis of its contents.

great cause of thankfulness to God for his
protecting care and merciful dealings with us
as a people.
The agitations in Europe are commented
upon, and the : President congratulates ° Con
gress on the Met that "the 11 ise theory a this
governinunt, so curly adopted and steadily
pursued, of avoiding all entangling alliances
"has hitherto exempted it from tenor cortipliett

‘ poiitts to our limited tirtny and Navy, and
past paeitic policy, as giving ample mss ranee
that our government has no disposition to
encr o a c h on the rights ur endanger the secu
rity of other Slates.
The occasion of the present war has been
seized by the Administration to obtain a re
cognition of the Anierican doctrine, that
" free slyfps make free nods,'" a doctrine
which from the very commencement of our
national being, has been a cherished idea of
the statesmen of this country. England and.
14'rahee both took steps in the beginning of
the present war to recognize this doctrine,
not, l9weyer, as an, international right, but
as a temporary concession. Other Towers
have also readily acquiesced. Russia has
promptly responded—the King of the Two
Sicilies hits signified his willingness to ac
cede—Prussia is willing to adopt the measure
upon condition that a clause renouncing Pri
vateering be introduced: To this the Presi•
deft objects on the ground that a country
like ours, , of great .commerce and compara
tively small Navy, would he unable to protect
itself. But when the leading powers of Eu

The treaty with England concerning the
Coast fisheries and lite reciprocal trade with

ratified and some of its anticipated advanta

of British fishermen to admit. free of duty fish
caught in waters when by the treaty ciur cit
izens are entitled to operate, is considered
just, but for want
,of authority not granted.
The President recommends the necessary
The President recommends that provision
be made for a commission to locate the boun

joining the British possessions.
The.dilliculty with France growing out of
the arrest of the French Consul at San Fran.,
eisco, and the recent difficulty between Mr.
Soule and the French Government, are both
said to . be ,satisfactorily settled, the French
government having uneilnivocally disavowed
any design to, deny the right df transit. to the
U. S. Minister:

The Message then reverts to domestic af
fairs. The revenue of the government for
the year is $73,549,705, expenditures $51,-
01,219, exclusive of payment of public debt,
amounts to $24,3311,308. The, receipts
of the current fiscal year will exceed the ex
penditures $15,000,000, which will be applied
to the reduction of the public debt, which is
As the receipts exceed the expenditures,
the President recommends at reduction of the
duties on import:. He also suggests legal
enactments, which will prevent officers ofthe
customs carrying oil% their books .as private
property, as frauds have been discovered to
the injury of the Government, when such
hooks have been examined,
An adequate increase of the army for the
protection of the frontiers is urged. It is
thought that four new regiments, two of in
fantry; and two of tnomited met., will be suf
ficient to meet the present exigency. Reform
in'tbe orgattic arrangement andadministra
tion of the set:ice is alsitsuggested
ly .in relation to promotions, and the creation
of a retired list. A n increase of our naval
force is also advised, the President remark
ing that the augmentation of the navy has
not kept pace with the duties pioperly and
profitably . assigned to it in time of 'wave,
and that tt. is 11110[1110 C for the large held of
its operations, not merely in the present . , but
still more in the progressively increasing exi•
genvies of the wealth and commerce of the
United States: The apprentice system, as
proposed. by the Secrikary of the Navy, is
The. Post:office expenses have been, during
the year, $8,710,907, the receipts $6,955,5t 4 G,
or, a cost to the Treasury, to sustain the pre
sent inadequate rates of postage of nearly
two millions of dollars. — This cost will be
greater now, for the compensation of Post
masters hap, been increased.
The number of acres of public lands sold
during the yetir is 7,035,735, for which over
$9,00,0,000 was received. The aggregate
amount of lands sold, located under military
scrip and land warrants, selected as swamp
lands by States, and by locating under grants
for roads, is upwards of twenty-three millions
of acres. The increase of lands sold, over
the previous year, is about 81 X. millions of
acres; and the sales during the first twO
quarters of the current year present the ex
traordinary result ,of five and a halt' millions
sold, exceeding by nearly four millions of
acres the bales of corresponding quarters of
the last year, thus increasing to an extent, un
paralleled during any like period in our past
history the amount of revenue provided from
this source for the Federal Treasury.
The policy of the government, in relation
to settling apart public domain for those who
hAve served their country in time of war,-is
illustrated by the fact, that since 1790, no
less than thirty millions of acres have been
applied to this object.
Respecting' the donation of public lands
in aid of the, construction of railroads, the
President expresses no definite views of poli
cy, but says he recurs with satisfaction to the
experience and action of the last session of
Congress, as furnishing assurance that the
subject, will not- tail, to elicit a'careful
amination and rigid scrutiny.
The discussion of - the question regarding
internal itnprovements by the goVernment, is
reserved for a special message, which will be
submitted to Congress at an early day.
The President renews previous recom
mendations of reforms in the Federal judi
ciary, and of provisions concerning the in
terests of the District of Columbia. .
The inssage. concludes with some general
rellection,on the duties of the government,
and an invocation of the blessiti.g•of. God on .
the deliberations of Congress
