his rcport for a full statement of the con

risdiction. The Executive has abated
no efibrt in carrying into efiect the well
establishcd policy of the Government,
which contemplates a rcmoval of all the
tribes residing within the limits of the
eeveral States, beyond the limils , and it
is now enablcd to congratulate the coun
try at the prospect of an early cousutna
lion of this object. Many of the tribes
havc already made grcat progress in the
atts of civilized life; and through the op
peralion of the schools established among
them, aided by the efiorts of the pions
inen of various rc'.igious denominations
wbo devote themselvcs to the tasfc of
their improvement we may fondly hope
that, the remains of the formidable tribc:
which wcre oncethemastersofthis coun
try will, in their transition from the sav
nge state to a condition of refincraent and
cultivalion, add another bright trophy to
sdorn the labors of a well-directed phil
anthropy. The accompanying report of the scc
rctaiy of the Navy will explain toyou thc
situation of that branch of the service.

In cnnscnucnce of thc difficulties that
havc exiated in the way ofsecuring tilles
for ihe necessaty grouiids, opcratiom
havc ucl yet been com:nenced towards
the establishment of the Nau-yatd at
Mernphis. So soon as the title is pcr
fected, no furthcr delay will be admittcd
to interf cnc. It is well worthy yoar con
oiderat'ron, whether Congrcss should not
direct the cstablis'.iment of a rope walk
in connectiim with the contcmplated Na
vy Yard, as a mcasure not only of econ
omy but as highly useful and ncccssary.
The only establishment of the sort now
cnunectcd with the service is localed at
Boston; and the advautagis of a similar
establishment, convcnient to the hemp

On my coming into office, a debt of nearly
500,000 existed against the Depart

npproprialion from the Treasury. The
Departmcut on the 4th of March next,
will be found, under the management of
the prescnt eflicient board, frce of debt or
cmbarrassment, which could only have
been done by the observanc and practice
of the greatest vigilance and economy.
The laws have contemplated thro'out that
the Department should be self sustained;

Thcre is a strong desire manifested in
many q'tarters, so to alter the tarift" of
leitcr postage as to reduce the amcunt of
tax at present imposed. Should such a
measure be carried into effect, to the full
extent dcsircd, it cannot well be doubted
but that for the first year of its operation
a diminished revenue would be collected,
the supply of which would necessatily
conitiiute a charge upon the Ireasury.
Whether snch a result would be desira
We, it will be for congress in its wisdom
to determine. It may in general be as-
erted, that radical alterations m anysys

a!Iy, than by sudden changes ; and by
pursuing this prudentpolicy in the reduc
tion of Ietter postage, the department may
itill sustain itself throucrh the revenue
which would accrue by the increase of
letteis. J he state and condition of the
