During tlc day an important coniumlt
cation was r eccived in the House from
the President of the United States. The
communication was recetved while the
House were in Committee of th'e W bole.
and the Committee rose to receive the
lessage. It was on the subject of the
ave trade otn the coast of Brazil.
the Senate aad
ouse of Representatives of the U. S.
1 transmit, herewith, for the informa
ion of Congress, copies of certain des
patches recently received front Mr. Wise,
our Envoy Extraordinary and Minister
Plenipotentiary at the Court of Brazil.
upon the nubject of the Slave Trade, de
veloping th,- means used and the devices
resorted to, in order to evade existing en
actments pon that subject.
Anxiously desirous as are the United
States to suppreis a traffic so revulting to
humanity, in the efforts to accdmplish
which they have been the pioneers of civi
p lized States, it cannot but be a subject of
the most profound regret that any portion
of our citizens should be acting in co-ope
ration with the subjects of other powers, in
opposition to the policy of their own gov
ernment: thereby subjecting to suspicion
and to the hazard of disgrace the flag of
their o' n country. It is true this traffic
is carried on altogether in foreign ports,
and that our own coasts are free from its
pollutidn. But the crime remains the
same wherever perpetrated; and there are
many circumstances to warrant the belief
that some of ottr citizens are deeply invol
ved in its guilt. The mode and manner
of carrying on this trade are clearly and
fearlessly set forth in the accompanying
documents; and it would seem thnt.a reg
ular system has been adopted for the pur
pose of thwarting the policy and evading
the penalties of our laws. Amencan ves

reasons to believe, of the otn ners and tta.

are to navigate her back to the ports of
Brazil, with her cargo of slaves. Utler

United States for some port in Great Bri

as "coast goods" are designed especially
for the African trade, is purchased, ship.

two hundred and ninety-six woanded by
these disasters. Duritng the satme period
of time,-ten years,-twevnty five vessels
were destroyed by fire, and two hundred
