Tba following is tho President's mes?

To the Senate and House of Representa?
I hayo the honor to submit herewith
to the two houses of Congress tho re?
port of the commissioners appointed iu
pursuance of a joint resolution, approv?
ed January 12,1871. It will be observed
that this report more than sustains nil
that I have heretofore said in regard to
the productiveness and healthfulness of
the Republic of San domingo, of the
unanimity of the people for annexation
to the United States, and their poaceable
It is due to tbe publio, as it certainly
is to myself, that I should here givo all
the circumstances which first led to thc
negotiation of a treaty for the annexa
tion of the Republio of San Domingo tc
tho United States. When I accept?e
the arduous and responsible positioi
whioh I now hold, I did not dream o
instituting any steps for the a?q?isitioi
of insular possessions. I believed, how
ever, that our institutions were bronc
enough to extend over tho entire conti
neut as rapidly as other peoples migh
desire to bring themselves under on
protection. I believed, further, that w
should not permit any independen
government within the limits of Noni
America to pass from a condition of in
dependence to ono of ownership or pro
teotion under any European power.
Soon after my inauguration as Presi
dent, I was waited upon by an agent o
President Baez, with a proposition to au
nex the Republio of San Domingo t
the United States. This gentleman ret
resented the capacity of tho island, th
desire of the people, and their oharactc
and habits about as they have been d<
scribed by the Commissioners, whose t i
port accompanies this message. B
stated, farther, that beiug weak in nun
bers and poor in purse, they were not ci
pable of developing their groat resource)
that the people had no incentive to ii
dustry, on account of luck of protcctic
for their accumulations; and that, if m
accepted by the United States, with ii
stitutions whioh they loved above tho:
of any other nation, they would be cor
polled to seek protection elsewhere. 1
theso statements, I made no reply, ai
gave no indication of-what I thought
the proposition. In the conrse of tim
I was waited upon, by a second gentl
man, from San Domingo, who ruado tl
same representation**' and who was r
ceivod in like manner.
In view of tho facts which had ho<
laid beforo me, and with an earnest desi
to maintain the Monroe doctrine, I b
lieved that I would be diroleot in n
duty if I did not tako measures tu ascc
tain thc exact wish of the Governme
and inhabitants of tho Republio of H.
Domingo, in regard to annexation, ai
communicate the information to t
poople of tho United States. Under t
atteuding circumstances, I felt that if
turned a deaf ear to this appeal, I mig
in the futuro be justly charged with
flagrant neglect of tho publio inter?s
and an utter disregard of the welfare
a down-trodden race, praying for t
blessings of a freo and strong govei
ment, and for protection in the onj<
ment of tho fruits of their own indust
Those opponents of annexation, w
have heretofore professed to bo proi
nently tho friends of tho rights of mi
I believed would be my most violent
sailants if I neglected so clear a du
Accordingly, after having appoiute<
commissioner to visit the island, M
doclincd on account of sickness, I
leoted a second gentleman, in wh
capaoity, judgment and iutegrity I h
and have yet, the most undoubted co
donee. Ho visited San Domingo, no
secure or hasten annexation, but,
prejudiced and unbiassed, to learn
tho facts about the Government,
people and tho resources of that rep
lio. Ho weut, oertaiuly, as well ]
pared to muke an unfavorable repor
a favorable one, if tho faots warrantee
His report fully corroborated tho vi
of previons commissioners, and, upot
receipt, I felt that a sonse of duty ai
due regard for our great national iuter
required mo to uegotiato a treaty for
acquisition of tho Republic of San
As soon as it became publicly kn
that such a treaty had been nogolia
tho attention of the country was o
pied willi allegations calculated to
judico tho merits of tho caso, and
aspersions upon those whoso duly
connected them with it. Amidst
public excitement thus created,
treaty failed to receive the requisite
thirds volo of the Senate, and was
jeoted; but whether tho action of
body was basod wholly upon the m
of tho treaty, or might not havo L
in some degree, influenced by sud
founded allegations, could not bo kr
by the people; becaaso tho dobatos o
Senate in secret session aro not
lished. Under theso circumstauc
deomed it duo to tho office which I 1
and duo the charaotor of tho agents
had boen charged with tho investiga
that such proceedings should bo lui
would euablo tho peoplo to know
truth. A commission was, there
constituted, uudor authority of
gress, consisting of gout lemon sci
with special reference to their high
racier and capacity for tho labe
work entrusted to them, who wer
str neted to visit the spot and report
tho facts. Other eminont citizens
requested to accompany the commii
in order that people might bav<
benefit of their views. Studen
science and correspondents of tho press,
without regard MT political ' opinion?,,
Were invited to j?lo tho expedition ; aud |
these numbers were limited only by the
Capacity of tho vessel.
The mero rejection by tho Senate of a
treaty negotiated by the Pr?sident only
indicates a difference of opinion between
two co-ordinate departments of the Go?
vern mont, without touching the charac?
ter or wounding tho pride of either; but
whon such rejection takes placo simulta?
neously with charges openly made of
corruption on the part of the President,
or of those employed by him, tho case.is
different. Indeed, in such case, the
honor of the nation demauds investiga?
tion. This bas been accomplished by
tho report of tho Commissioners, here?
with transmitted, and which fully vindi?
cates the purity of tho motives aud aotion
of those who represented the United
States in tho negotiation.
And now my tusk is finished, and with
it ends all personal solicitude upon the
subject. My duty being done, yours
begins; and I gladly baud over tho whole
matter to the judgment of tho American
people and of their representatives in
Congress assembled. The facts will now
bo spread before tho country, and a deci?
sion rendered by that tribunal whoso
convictions so seldom orr, and against
whose will I have uo policy to enforce.
My opinion remains unchanged; iudeed,
it is confirmed, by the report that tho
interests of our couutry aud of San Do?
mingo alike invito the annexation of that
republic. In view of tho difference of
opiniou upon this subject, I suggest that
no action be taken nt thc present ses?
sion, beyond the printing and general
dissemination of the report. Before the
next session of Cougress, thc people will
have considered the subject, and formed
an intelligent opinion concerning it, to
which opinion, deliberately made up, it
will b? tho duty of every department of
the Government to heed; and no one
will more cheerfully conform to it than
myself. It is not only thc theory of our
constitution that tho will of the people,
constitutionally expressed, is the su?
preme law, but I have over believed that
all men are wiser than any ono man; and
if the people, upon a full presentation of
tho facts, shall decido that the annexa?
tion of tho republio is not desirable,
every department of the Government
ought to acquiesce in that decision.
lu again submitting lo Congress a
subject upon whioh public sentiment hus
been divided, and which has been made
the occasion of acrimonious debates in
Congress, as well as of unjust aspersions
elsewhere, I may, I trust, bo indulged in
a singlo remark. No mau can hope to
perform duties so delicate aud responsi?
ble as pertain to the Presidential office
without sometimes incurring tho hostili?
ty of those who deem their opinions and
wishes treated with insufficient consider?
ation; and he who undertakes to conduct
tho affairs of a great Government, as a
faithful publie servant, if sustained by
the approval of his own conscience, may
roly, with confidence, upon the candor
und intelligence of a free people, whose
best interests ho has striven to subserve,
and can bear with patience thc censure
of disappointed men.
