Aftor congratulating the country on
peace prospects, the Prosident related
that tho free exercise of tho elective
franchise had been denied to citizens
in several places, lately in rebellion, aud
tbe "Verdict of tho people theroby re?
versed. Referring to the European war,
ho speaks of tho satisfactory manner in
which tho protection of tho American
minister at Paris was oxtended to Ger?
man subjects in France. Referring to
tho proclamation of tho Republic of
France, he says that, should the present
struggle result in attaching the heart of
tho French tn tho simpler forms of a
Republican Government, it will bo a
subject, of still further satisfaction. The
American pcoplo should not he indiffer?
ent to tho spread of American political
ideas in n great and highly civilized
conutry Uko France; that if au opportu?
nity for interposing tho good nflices of
tbe United States in restoring peaco
shall present itself, that action will bo
heartily taken. As to Cuba, he says
the OOUdition of tho insurrection has
not materially changed. He renews his
recommendation to annex San Domingo,
aud says io soon as it in known that the
project is abaudoncd hy tho United
States, negotiations will bo opened by
some of tho European powers, for the
possession of the Bay of Saraann. Ho
urges early action of Congress, and sug?
gests that by joint r?solutiou of the two
Houses, the Executive shall bo author?
ized to appoint a commission to nego?
tiate a treaty with the authorities of San
Domingo, for the acquisition of that
island, aud that an appropriation ho
made to defray tho expenses of a com?
mission. Tho question might then bo
determined better by tho action of the
Senate on the treaty, or by thc action
of both Houses oe a resolution of an?
nexation, as in tho case of Texas.
Ho calls the attention of Congress to
the continuance aud extension of thc
now Mexican . Free Zone, and to
tho Tien-tsiu massacre. lu regard to
the Alabama claims, he recommends
that Congress authorize tho appointment
of a commissiou to take proofs as to
these claims, and that authority bo given
for their settlement by tho Uuited
States, so that tho Governmeut shall
have tho ownership of the private cluims
as well as thc responsible control of all
the demands against Great Britain. lu
regard to tho Canadian fisheries, he com?
plains that thc course of tho Canadian
authorities hus not beeu marked hy
friendly feelings, and intimates that ii
they should attempt to enforce a certain
act of the Dominion Parliament, it will bc
his duty to take such steps as may bc
necessary to protect tho iutcrests of thc
United States citizens. He asks tbul
power be conferred upon him to sus
pend the operation of tho laws authoriz
ing tho transit of merchandize in bone
through the United States to Canada.
and also to suspend the operation of anj
laws whereby vessels of the Dominioi
are permitted to cuter tho waters of tin
Uuited States. Ho also complains o
tho pretensions of Canada to the coutro
of tho navigation of tho St. Lawrence
and argues tho importance and right o
the United States to navigate that river
without let .or hindrance. "With regan
to tho depressed condition of tbcforeigi
commerce of the United States, ho alsi
recommends a liberal policy towards th
Pacific mail between California aud Chi
na and Japan. Ho also recommends thu
measures muy bo taken lo permit Ame
rican merchants to purchase vessels hui!
abroad, as well as to encourage Amcri
can ship-building. With regard to th
currency, tho President says tho ar.
preach to a specie basis is very gratify
ing, but tho instability of tho currone
is very prejudicial to prosperity, ll
thinks tho time has arrived when, by
wise and prudent legislation, Congres
should look to a polioy which wool
placo tho currency ut par with gold at u
distant day. With regard to revenue r<
form, ho says if it means to keep th
reveuuo down to what is necessary fe
tho support of tho Government and pa;
maut of interest on tho public debt,
has his hearty support; but. if it mear
failure to provide tho necessary means I
defray all expenses of tho Governraen

Governor Scott, who. hnv??g accom?

tho negroes keep thoir places, and tarn
South Carolina into a white man's State,
by removing tho colored officials and
filling the vacancies with white men.
The idea is that Governor Scott can
securo, through the present Legislature,
the completion of the Blue Bidge Rail?
road, and will, upon his retiring from
tho Gubernatorial chair, become Presi?
dent of what may then bo tho most
important railroad in the South. Daddy

that the leading colored men must coun?

RECRUITS FOR FRANCE.-It is statod
that GOO Irishmen and 400 Frenchmen
have left New York to join the French

among tho lenders of a secret Franco

has been deferred. The same man is

in a similur way.
