••all ul witch are considered as a' violation of the Fresty of Amity and Cutninerce between the two countries, have led to a correspondence of con-idera file length between the Minister of FOl eign Relations and our Representative of Mexico, but without any satisfactory re. 'suit. They remain still unadjusted ; and many and serious inconveniences have already resulted to our citizens in Coll9C querice of them. Questions growing nut of the act of dis arming a body of Texian troops under the command of Major Snively, by an officer in the service of the United States, acting under the orders - 61611r Government; and the forcible entry into the ttis'ttn !louse at Iltyarty's " l anding, on Red River, by certain citizens of tlie United States, and 'taking away therefrom the goods Seitceil Eby the Collector oh the Customs, as forfei ted under the laws of Texas, 'have been adjusted ; so far as the powers 'of the Exe 'utive extend. The correspondence be 'twee nthe two Governments in reference to , both subjects, will be found amongst the accompanying documents. It contains a lull statement of all the l'acts and circum stances, with the Views taken on Soth.sides, 'and the 'principles on which the questions !have been adjusted. it remit:lls for Con .gress to make thenecessary appropriation to carry the arrangement into effect, which respectfully recommend. The greatly improved condition of the Treasury ,affords a subject fur general con gratulation. The Paralysis which luad fallen on trade and commerce, and which subjected the Government to the necessity of resorting to loans, and the issue of Treasury notes to a large amount, has *passed away; and after the payment of upwards of $7,000,000, on account of the interest, and in redemption of more than $5,000,000 of public debt, which 'falls due .on the Ist of January next, and setting •apart upwards of $2000,000 for the pay •ment of outstanding Treasury notes, and meetins•. an instalment of the debts of the , corporate cities of the District of Colum hia,—an estimated surplus of upwards of $7,000,000, over and above the existing appropriations will remain in the Treasury at the close of the fiscal year, Should the Treasury notes continue outstanding, as 11eietotore, that surplus will be considera .bly augmented. Although all interest has ceased upon them, and the Govern. 'mem has invited their return to the Trea sury, yet they remain outstanding; arfiir 'ding great facilities to commerce, and establishing the fact that under a magi I .regulated system of finance, the Govern ment has resources within itself, which render it independent in time of need, not only of private leans, but also of bank facilities. The only remaining subject of regret is the remaining stocks of the Govern ment do not fall due at an earlier day ; since their redemption would be entirely Within its control. As it is, it may be well worthy the consideration of Con tress, whether the law establishing the sinking kind—under the operation of which the debts of the Revolution and last war with G. Britain were to a great extent extinguished, should not with pro per modifications (so as to prevent an ac cumulation of surpluses, and limited in . amount to a specific sum,) be re-enacted. Such provision, which would authorize - Vie Government to go into the market for a purchase of its own stock, On fair terms, ivould serve to maintain its credit at the highest point, and pre vent, to a peat extent those finctuas lions in the price of its securities; which might, undte other circumstances, affect its credit: No apprehension of this sort is, at this moment, entertained, since the stocks of the Government which but two years ago were offered for sale to capital. rats, at home or abroad, at a depreciation, end, could find no purchasers, are now greatly above par in the hands of the hol ders; but a wise and prudent forecast ad monishes us to place beyound the reach of contingency the public credit. It must also be a matter of uniningled gratification, that under the existing.finan cial system—resting upon the act of 1789, and the resolution of 1816--the currency oldie country has attained a state of per fect soundness; and the rates of exchange between different parts of the Union, which, in 1841, denoted, by their enor mous amount, the great depreciation, and in fact, worthlessness of the currency in most of the States-1-are now reduced to - little more than the mere expense of trans. -porting specie from place to placle, and the risk incidental to the operation. In a new country like that of the United States —where so many inducements are held out for speculation—the depositories of the surplus revenue, consisting of Banks of any description, when it reaches any • considerable amount, require the closest vigilence on the part of the Government: All banking institutions, under whatever denomination they may pass, are govern ed by an almost exclusive regard to the .interest of the stockholders. That in terest consists in the augmentation of profits, in the form of dividends, and a large surplus revenue entrusted to their custody, is but too apt to lead to exces sive loans and to extravagantly large issues of paper. As a necessary consequence, prices are nominally increased, and the speculative mania everywhere seizes upon the public mind. A fictitious state of prosperity for a season exists, undo!' the language of the day, money becomes plen ty. Contracts are entered into by individs r , sting on this unsubstantial state of thirr4s, but the delusion speedily passes \otwoy, and the country is overrun with an ~-in.le'itriltiess so weighty as to overwhelm ;zany, and to visit every department of nlustry with great and ruinous embar issment. The greatest vigilance becomes neces. sary on the part 'of the Government to guard against thiVstate of things. The depositories muSt be given distinctly to understand tbat the favors of the Gov ernment will be altogether withdrawn, or substantially diminished, if its revenues shall be regarded as as to their banking capital, or as the foundation of an enlarged circulation. The Govern• rnent through its revenue, has, at all times, an important part to perform in connex ion with the currency; and it greatly de pends upon its vigilance and care, wheth er the country be involved in embarrass ments similar to those which it has had recently to 'encounter; or aided by the action of the Treasury shall be preserved in a Sound and healthy condition. The dangers to be guarded against are greatly augmented by two large a surplus of revenue. When that surplus greatly ex ceeds in amount what shall be required by a wise and prudent forecast to meet un forseen contingencies', the legislature it self may come to be siezed with a dispo sition to indulge in extrvagant appropria tions to objects, many of which may, sod most probably would be band to conflict with the constitution. A fancied expedi ency is elevated above constitutional au thority, and a reckless and wasteful ex travagance but too certainly follows. The important power of taxation, which when exercised in its most restricted form, is a burden on labour and production, is re sorted to, under various pretexts, for purposes having no affinity to the motives which dictated its grant, and the extrava gance, Government stimulates individual extravagance, until the spirit of wild aid ill-regulated speculation involves one and elfin its unfortunate results. In view of such fatal eonsequencesy it may be laid down as an axiom, founded in moral and political truth, that no greater taxes shobld be linposed than are necessary for all eco nomical administration of the Govern ment, and that whatever exists beyond should be redeced or modified. This doctrine does in no Way conflict with the exercise of a sound discrimina' tion in the selection of the articles to be taxed, which a due regard to public weal would at tall times suggest to tlieLegis!a tive mind. It leaves the range of selection undefined; and such selection should al ways be made with an eye to the great interests of the country. Composed as is the Union, of separate and independent States, a patriotic Legislature will not fail in consulting the interests of the parts, to adopt such a course as will be best calculated to advance the harmony of the whole; and thus insure that permanency in the policy of the Government without which all alias to advance the public prosperity are vain and fruitlesS. This great and vitally important task rests with Congress; and the Executive can do no more than recommend the general principles which should govern in its exe cution. I refer you to the report of the &dietary of War for an exhibition of the condition of the army ; and recommend to you, as well worthy your best con sideratiou, many of the suggesions it contains The Secretary in no degree exaggerates the great im portance of rimming forward, without delay, in the work of erecting and finishing the fortifications, to which ho particularly alludes. Much has been done towards placing our cities and roadsteads in a state of security against ' the hazards of hostile attack, within the last four years. but considering the new elements which have been, of late years, employed in the propelling of shipe, and the formidable im plements of destruction which have been brought into service, we cannot be too active or vigilant in preparing and perfecting the means of defence. I refer you, also, to his report for a full statement of the condition of the Indian tribes within our juris diction. The Executive has abated no effort in. carrying into effect the well-established policy of Ole bov - - ernment. which contemplates a removal of all the tribes residing within the limits of the several States, beyond those limits; and it is now enabled to coo gratulate the country at the prospect of an early con summation of this object. Many of the tribes have al ready made great progress in the arts of civilizedllife; and through the operation of the schools established among them, aided by the efforts of the pious men of various religious denominations—who devote themselves to the task of their improvement—we may fondly hope that the remains of the formidable tribes which were once the masters of this country will in their transition from the savage state, to a condition of refinement and cultivation, add another bright trophy to adorn the labors of a well-directed phi tenth ropyk The accompanying report of the Secretary of the Navy, will explain to you the situation of that branch of the service. The present organization of the Department imparts to its operations great ef ficiency ; but I concur fully in the propriety of a division of the Bureau of Construction, Equipment, and Repairs, into two Bureaux. The subjects ad now arranged, are incongruous, and require to a certain client, information and qualifications alto gether dissimilar. The operations of the squadron on the coast of Africa have been conducted with all due attention to the object which led td its organization ; and I am happy to say that the officers and crews have bnjoyed the best possible health, under the system adopted by the officer in conimand. It is believe ed the United States is the only nation which has, by its laws, subjected to the punishment of death, as pirates, those engaged in the slate-trade.— A similar enactment oh the part of other nations would not fail to be attended by beneficial results. In consequence of the difficulties which have existed in the way of smiting titles for the fiecees ary pounds, operations have not yet been commen ced toward the establishment of the Navy Yard at Memphis. So soon as the title is perfected, no fur , - ther delay will be permitted td intervene. It is well worthy of your consideration whether Congress should riot direct the establishment of a rope-walk, in connection with the contemplated Navy Yard, as a measure not only of economy, but as highly mkt and necessary. The only establishment of the sort now connected with the service is located at Boston ; and the advantages of a similar estab lishment, convenient to the hemp-growing region, must be apparent to all. The report of the Secretary presents other mat ters to your consideration, of ari Important charac ter in connection with the service. In referring you to the accompanying report of the Postmaster General, it affords me continued cause of gratification to be able to advert to the fact' that the affairs of tho Department, for the last tbur yeais, have been so conducted ha, from its unaided resourcis to meet its largo expenditures. On my coming ifitia'office a debt of nearly $500,000 exis ted againgt the Department, which Congress dis charged by at'i appropriation from the Treasury.— The Department, on the 4th of March next, will be found, under the management of its present ef ficient head, free 'Ofdebt or embarrassment, which could only have been done by the observance and practice of the greatest vigilance and econothy.— The laws have contemplated, throughout, that the Departmentshould be Pelf-sustained ; but it may be come necessary, with the 'wisest regard to public in terests, to introduce einem:milts and alterations in the system. There is a strong desire manifested in many quar ters, so to alter the tariff of letter postage as to re duce the amount of tax at presentimposed : Should such a measure be carried into 'efibet, to the full ex tent desired, it cannot well be doubted but that, for the first few years of its operation, a diminished reveue would be collected, the supply of which would necessarily constitute a charge upon the Treasury. Whether such a result woula be desi rable, it will be for Congress, in its wisdom, to de terminate. It may in general be asserted, that rad ical alterations in any system should rather be brought about gradually, than by sudden 'changes; and by pursuing this prudent policy in the reduc tion of letter postage, the Department might still sustain itself through the revenue which would ac true by the increase of letters. The state and condition of the public Treasury, has, heretofore, been such as to have precluded the recommendation of any material change. The ditlMlties upon this head, have, however, ceased, and a large discretion is new left to the Government. I cannot too strongly urge the policy of author itiing the establishment of a line of steamships, reg ularity to ply between this country and foreign ports, and upon our own waters, for the transporta tion of the Mail. The example of the British Gov ernment is well worthy of imitation in this respect. The belief is strongly entertained that the emolu ments 'arising from the transportation of Mail mat ter to foreign countries, would operate of itself as an inducement to cause individual enterprise to under take that branch of the task; and the renumeration of the Government would consist in the addition readily made to our steam navy, in case of emergen cy, by the ships so employed. Should this suggestion meet your approval, the I propriety of placing such ships under the command 'of experienced officers of the Navy will not escape your observation. The application of steam to the purpose of naval warfare, cogently recommends an extensive steam marine as important in estimating the defenses of the country. Fortunately, this may be attained by us to a great extent, without incur ring any largo amount of expenditure. Steam vessels to be engaged in the transportation of the mails on our principal water courses, 'ekes ' and parts of our coast, could also be so constructed as to be efficient as war vessels when needed, and would of themselves constitute a formidable force in order to repel attacks from abroad. We cannot be blind to the fact, that other nations have already added large numbers of steamships to their naval arma ments, and that this neev and powerful agent is destined to revolutionize the condition of the world. It becomes the United States, therefore, looking to their security, to adopt a similar policy; and thy plan suggested will enable them to do so at a small comparative cost. I take the greatest pleasure in bearing testimony to the zeal and untiring industry which has char acterized the conduct oldie members of the xec- Wive Cabinet. Each, in his appropriate sphere, has rendered me the most efficient aid in carrying on the Government, and it will not I trust appear out of place for me to bear tins public testimony.— The cardinal objects which should tV'et be held in view by those entrusted with the administration of public affairs, are rigidly, and without favor or ittfection, so to interpret the national will, expressed in the laws as that injustice should be done to none —justice to all. This has been the rule upon which they have acted; and thus, it is believed that few cases, if any exist, wherein our fellow citizens, who, from time to time, have been drawn to the Seat of Govern= ment, for the settlement of their transactions with the Government, have gone away dissatisfied. Where the testimony has been perfected, and was esteemed satisfactory, their claims have been promptly audited; and this in the absence of all favoritism or partiality. The Government which is not just to its own people, can neither claim their affection, nor the !meet of the world. At the same time, the closest attention has been paid to those matters which relate more immediately to the great concerns of the country. Order and effibiency in each branch of the public service, have prevailed, accompanied by a system of the most rigid responsibility on the part of the receiving and disbursing agents. The fact, in illustration of the truth of this remark, deserves to be noticed that the revenues of the Government, amounting in the last four years to upwards of $120,000,000, have been collected and disbursed, through the numerous Gov ernmental agents, without the loss, by default, of any amount worthy of serious commentary. The appropriations made by Congress for the im provement of the rivers of the West, and of the harbors on the lakes, are in a course of judicious ex penditure under suitable agents,and are destined, it is to be hoped to realize all the benefits designed to be accomplished by Congress. I cannot, however, suffi ciently impress upon Congress the great importance of withholding appropriations front improvements which are not ascertained, by previous examination and survey, to be necessary for the shelter and pro tection of trade from the dangers of storms and tem pests. Without this precaution, the expenditures aro but too apt to enure to the benefit of individnals— with out referenee to the only consideration which can render them constitutional—the public interests and the general good. I cannot too earnestly urge upon you the inter ests of this District, over which by the constitution, Congress has exclusive jurisdiction. It would be deeply to be regretted should there be at any time, ground to complain of neglect on the part of a com munity which, detached as it is from the parental care of the State. of Virginia.and Maryland, can only expect aid from Congress, as its local legisla ture. Amongst the subjects whirls claim your at tention, is the prompt organization of an asylum for the insane, who may be found, from time to time, adjourning within the District. Such course it also demanded by considerations which apply to branches of the public service. For the necess ities in this behalf, I invite your particular attention to the report of the Secretary of the Navy. I have thud, gentlemen of the two Houses of Congress, presented you a true and faithful picture of the condition of public affairs, both foreign and doMestic. The wants of the public service ore Made known to you; and matters of no ordinary importance are urged upon yout consideration.— Shall I not be permitted to congratulate you on the happy auspicies under which you have assembled, and at the important change in the condition of things which has occurred in the last three years! ' During that period questions with foreign power* of vital importance to the peace of our country, have been settled and adjusted. A desolating and wasting war with savage tribes has been brought to a close. The internal tranquility of the country, threatened by agitating questions, has been preser ved. The credit of the Government, which had experienced a temporary embarressment, has been r thoroughly restored. Its coffers, which, for a sea -1 eon were empty, have bees replenished. A cur. rency nearly uniform in its value, has •eken the place of one depreciated and almost worthless. Commerce and manufactures, which had suffer ed in common with every other interest, have once more revived; and the whole country exhibits an aspect of prosperity and happiness. Trade and barter, no longer governed by a wild and speculative mama, rests upon a solid and substantial footing; and the rapid grcivah of our cities, in every direc tion, bespeaks most strongly the favorable circum stances by which we are Surrounded. My hap piness, in the retirement which shortly awaits me, is the ardent hope which T experience, that this state of prosperity is:neither deceptive nor destined to be short-lived, and that measures which have not yet received its sanction, 'but, which I cannot but regard as closely connected With the honour, the glory, and still more enlarged . m'osierity of the country, are destined,'at an early day, to receive the approval of Congress. Crider these circurndtaties, and with„these an ticipations, I shall most gladly leave to others, More able than myself, the noble and pleasing task of susteiningthe public prosperity. I shall carry with me into retirement the gratifying reflection that, as my sale object throughout has been to advance the public good, I may not entirely hive failed in ac complishing it; and this gratification is brightener', in no small degree, by the fact that when, under a deep and abiding sense of duty, I have found my self constrained to resort to the qualified veto, it has neither been followed by disapproval on the part of the people, nor weakened, in any degree, their at tachment to that great conservative feature of our Government.
