Nee be Whipper/..F-The select eitele, who
haveasince the beginning of the rebellion,
.Meter ceased to declare that the rebels ' can't
be whipped.,-" must now confess that their
judgment was not quite correct Already
the confession comes up frats the tit; Charles
ton-fhat they have had eneeigh. No one de..
sires to evult Misr the sUfferiegs of an enemy,
Mtn though his misery is the effect of his
own passion; but when we find' the leading
paper stlppeftifig the Cuttfederate cause, ad
dressing its renders in the 'following strain,
it is amnions indeed. The Charleston Cour
ier says:
"The eoutinuance of this contest involves
increased Snaring. The evils that fo:low
in the train of this calamitous visitation grow
more direful with every day. Other hearts,
than those now aching with anxitty and bleed
ing from bereavement are rent with grief, and
the friend ivho sytupathised with some afflic
ted one yesterday, to-day weeps bitter tears
offer his own sorrow. The iron is driven
the deeper, and our burdens become more
and more heavy, and though more than 00=
teen months have passed away since the
strife was begun, the end seems more distant
than it appeared to be a twelve month► - since.
Hope after hope has gone out in dfirkness f
and expectations we had fondly Ofterisiied
have turned out to be miserable delusions.
So often have we been disappointed and de
ceived, that now our faith rejects every prom
ise and turns away from every sign. Oar
foe is as active and determined as ever he
was, and the agent that was Zd eottipel foreign
nations to intervene and put an end to this
wicked and infamous contest, has not been
potent enough to accomplish that end."

Although the President thinks 'd'is repug

impression that ho has misgivings- as to the
results of the foreign colonisation scheme.

To the War and Navy Reports but brief
reference is made. It, Post Office affairs
there' is a gratifying improvement. The- re•
eeipts from the (v a t ,yeates in , am year wal
ing June 30th, 1862, were $8,299,320, which
is within $50,000 of the total receipts from
all the States in 1860-61.' The expendi
tures for the same -years wore as follows : I
$11,125,364 itr.lB6l-62, against .. : a6,-
759 in 186064, showing a decrease of a
bout $2,481,006 for the last peer, and of
$3,750,000 as compared with in 1860. The
1 deficit has been reduced from 64,550,000 to
$2,220,000. Foreign Governments have
been invited, and some have agreed. to meet
in a Postal Convention, to simplify the rates
of foreign postage, and to facilitate the trans ,
mission ot the foreign mails.
The public lands have ceased to be a source
of revenue, but $37,476 having been received
frem that ermine in. the Tauter from July 1
to September 30 f of this year. After the

Our Indian affairs were ;atcly iu bad con
dition. A simultaneous rising seems to have
been plotted from the Misstsip to , the
Rocky Mountains, It, however, spent its
force in lii.nesota,, where - it appears that
not Jess than eight hundred men, women and
- children were . massacred. - The President
expresses no opinion. upon the punishment
ut the savages who were csiptured is sup
pressing the revolt, We trust, for the sake
of the people of Minnesota and for the cause
of justice, that no more sentaineotality will
be allowed to frustrate the severe and exem
plary punishment that should be inflicted on
these cruel and treacherous villains.
A reference is made to a papor, accom
panying the message, upon the proceedings
of the Pacific Railroad Commissioners, in
which - they appear to have gone out . of their
province to champion the great New 'York
canal scheme. It is difficult to discern in
7t: it• ler
the laudatory language is their's or the Pres
ident'l. We hope nut the latter.
Preeeeding this there is a brief discus
sion of past and future plans of finance.—
The vast expenditures for the warliave been
mot with unusna: promtitude and certainty,
and the National debt fully maintained,—
Large issues of U. States notes have been
unavoidable; but they have become a valu
ed and universal currency, saving the -peo
ple immense sums in discount and eSchan
ges. But a return to specie payments must
be kept in view, and it. is considered doubt
ful whether suchi a eireulaion,- payable in
coin, can be pm ma'nently maintained. The
President, therefore recommends the organi
zation of Banking Associations, under a gen-,
end Act of•Congiess, to which the Govern
is to furnish circulating notes upon a
pledge of United States bonds. Thus, it is
argued, would. improve the currency, protect
labor,•lurnish a cheap and safe txchange,
and snake a steady demand for the Govern
meat bonds.,
The receipts into the Treasury fop the fis

of $.1.3,043,547. Of these sums,
