Secretary of State.
To the Hon. the Speaker, &c. &c.

been referred a resolution of the TIu ofI
Representative% or the 22rl int.. request -

British Government. respecting: the Presi.

the hnor to inform the President that Mr.
Fox. H. B. .1. Envoy Extraordinary and
Plenipotentiary. came to the Department
oF State on the 24th of Feb. inst., and in
formed the Secretary of State that .he had
received from Lord Aberdeen, 1L. M.
Principal Secretary of State for Foreign
Affairs, a despatch under date of the 18th
of'Jinuary, which he was directed to read
to the Secretary of State of the United
States. The substance of that dispatch
was that there was a statement in a para
graph of the President's Message to Con
gress at the opening of the present season
serious import, because, to persons un
ncquainted with the facts, it would tend
to convey the supposition not only that the
question of right of search had. been dita
vowed by the Plenipotentiacy at Wash
ington; but that Great Britais had .made
concession o-n that point. -
That the President knew that tie riaht
of search never formed the subject of die
cession during the late negotiatior.. and
that neither was any concession required
by the 1uitll State% Goverunment nor
made by Great Britain.
That the engazement entered into by
the parties to the Trenty-of W%'n'bin.-ton
for suppressing the Africans Slave Trade
was uncoaditionally proposed and agreed
Thai the British Government saw in ia
an attempt on the part of the Govenment
of the United States to give a practical ef
fee t) -their repeated declarations aanast
the Vrade, aid recognised with sat iracsion
on-advance'towards the hunttne and on
lighteued policy of all Chris'inn St-ites
from which they anticipated much gamml.
That Qreat Britain would scrupuiluirly
fulfil the conditions of this enagement ;
bat'that from the principles which %he has
coastantly-asserted, and which are recor.
ded in the correpotdence between the
ministers of the United Statcs, in England.
and himself, in 1841, England has not re.
ceded and would not recede. Thaut he
had no intention to renew, at present, the
disesaseon upon the subject. That his
last note was yet unanswered. That the
Predident might be assured that Great
Britaio w'ould- always respect the just
clahns of the United States. . That Great
Britain made no pretensions to interfer min
ay manner whatever, either by detentien
viitntaiearch -with veselsof the Unised

W.ssTa-ro.M, Feb. 23.
Gentl.,smn:-As it cannot tie ito -c, a.
or too generally known, it gives me pleas
ure to ir.form you of a decision of much
moment. and of hikh conservative charac
ter, made to-day, by the Supreme Court.
with no other d6ientient but his lonnr
Mr. Justice McLean. It is this: That
the States have no nuthority. with refe
rence to existing contracts entered into
prior to such legislation, to provide for
the exemption of property from sale under
decrees on judgments until it shall have
been first appraised under such a law, and
unless it aball bring a sum bearing a pres
eribed porportion to the amount of such
appraisment. The question arose upon
a certifcate of division in opinion between
the Judes of the Circuit Court of the
Uqited S"tates for the District of Illinois
in the case of Bronson and Kinzie, invol
vjug tognstisationality,ftwo Acts of
9tht t Act ~
ofIthe same month and year. The (oi
lowing is a copy or the answer of the Su
premc Court tu the questions ;
"iFiitThe decree should direct the
preomite to be sold at auction to the high
est bidder, withtour regard to the Ia r of~
19th February, 1841. which gives the'
right of redemption to tho mortgager for

andl without requiring two-third, oft the
