THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE.
To tht Senate and
Houtt uf Riprcienlativtt t
At the opening or vour present session, I call
ed jour attention to the dangeri which threaten
ed the existence of the Union. I expressed my
opinions freely concerning the original causes
of these dangers, and recommended such mess-
urea as 1 believed would nave the enect ot tran
qulllzlog the country saving it from the peril
in wnicn it naa Deen needlessly ana piose uulor
These opinions and recommendations I do not
propose now to repeat. My own convictions up
on the whole subject remain unchanged. The
fact that a great calamity was impending over
the nation was, even at tbat time, acknowUdg
ed by every intelligent citizen. It had already
made itself felt throughout tho length and
Lbreadth of the land. The ne cecsarv 6&upquen-
ces of tho alarm thus produced were most de
plorable. Imports foil off withi raplditjjnever
known before, except In time ol war, in the his
tory. of our foreign commerce. The Treasury
was unexpectedly left without means, which it
had reasonably counted upon, to meet the pub
lic engagements. Trade was paralyzed, manu
factures stopped, the best public secuities sud
denly sunk in the market, every epeciei of
property depreciated more or less, and thousands
of poor men, who depended upon their daily la
bor for their daily bread, were turned out of em
ployment. I deeply regret that I am notable to give you
any information upon the state of the Union,
which is more satisfactory that what I was then
obliged to communicate. On the contrary, mat
ters are still worse at present than they then
were. When Congress mot, a strong hope per
vaded the whole pnblio mind that dome amicable
adjustment of the subject would be speedily
made by the representatives of the States,
which might restore peace between the conflict
ing sectioni of the country. Tbat hope has
been diminished by every hour of delay, and ai
the prospect of a bloodless settlement fades
away, the publio distress becomes more and
more aggravated. As au evidence of tbis it is
only necessary to say the Treasury notes auth
orized by ihe aet of the 17tb of December last,
were advertised according to law, and that no
responsible bidder offered to take any consider
able sum at par at I lower rate of interest than
twelve per cent.
From these facts it appears that, in a gov
ernment organized like ours, domestic strife,
or even a well grounded fear of civil hostili
ties, is more destructive of onr publio and pri
vate interests tban the most formidable foreign
In my annual Message I expreseed the con
viction, which I have long deliberately held.and
which recent reflection has only tended to deep
en and confirm, tbat no State has the right of its
own act to secede from the Union, or throw oft'
its obligations at pleasure I also declared my
opinion to be tbat.eveo if tbat right existed, and
should be exercised by any State in the Confed
eracy, the Executive department ot this Govern
ment bad do authority under the Constitution to
recognize its validity by acknowledging the in
dependence of such Slate. This lei true no al
ternative ai the chief executive offloer under the
Constitution of the United States, but to collect
the public revenues and protect the publio prop
erty, so far as this might be practicable under
existing laws. This is still my purpose. My
piovince is to execute, not to make tho laws
It belongs to Congress exclusively to repeal,
modify, or enlarge their provision! to meet ex
igencies as they occur. I possess no dispensing
power. I certainly bad no right to make ag
gressive war on any state, ana I am perleoily
satisfied that the Constitution has wisely with
held that power even from Coneress. But the
right and duty of using her military force de
fensively against those who resist the Federal
officer! in the exercise of their legal functions,
ana against mose wno aesau me property of the
reaerai uovernment, is oiear ana undeniable.
But the dangerous and hostile attitude of the
States towards each other has already transcend
ed and cast into the shade tho ordinary execu
tive dnties already provided for by law, and has
assumed such vast and alarming propertiona as
to place the subjeot entirely above and beyond
executive control. The fact cannot be dis
guised tbat we are in the midst of a great
evolution, inereiore, 1 commend tbe ques
tion to Congress, as tbe only human tribu
nal, under Providence, possessing tbe power
meet tae existing emergency. To
them exclusively belongs the power to de
clare war, lo authorize the employment of mil
itar force In all cases contemplated by the Con
stitution, and they alone popsoas the power to
remove all tbe grieveanoei that might lead to
war, and to secure peace and union to tbis dis
tracted oountrj. On them, and on them alone,
teats the responsibility. The Union is a itored
trnst left by our Revolutionary fathers to tbeir
descendants, and never did any other people in
herit so rich a legacy. It bas rendered ns pros
perous in peace and triumphant in war. The na
tional flag has floated in glory over every sea,
and under its shadow American citizens have
found protection aud respect in all lands beneath
tbeaun. If we descend to eonsideratloni of
nnrely material interest, when, In history of all
time, bai a confederacy been hold together by
uch strong tics of mutual Interest? Each por
tion of it Is dependant upon all, and all uoon
each portion, for prosperity and domeatio secur
ity, free trade tbrougnout tbe wbole. budo let
the wanti of one section with the productions cf
another, and scat ten wealth everywhere. Tie
great planting and farming States require the
Id of tbe commercial and navagating States to
send their productions to domestio and foreign
marKets, ana mrnisn me naval power to render
tbeir transportation' secure against .ill hostile
Should the Union perish in the mlJdt of the
present excitement, we have already had a sad
loretaste ot tne unversai sutleriug wmoh would
result from its destruction. The calamity
would be severe in every portion of tho Union,
and would be quite ai good, to soy tbe least,
In the Southern ai in tbe Northern States. .
The greatest aggravation of the evil, and
that which would place ui in the most un
favorable light, both belore the world and
posterity, is, as I am firmly convinced, that tho
secession movement baa been chiefly based
noon misapprehension at the South, of tbe
leniiments of the majority in several of tbe
Northern States. Let tbe question be car
ried from the political assemblies to the bal
lot box, ana tbe people tnemsetvee would speed
ily redress tbe serious grievances which the
South have suffered.' But, In Heaven's name,
let the trial be made before we plunge
Into an armed conflict upon the mcro assump
tion that there ia no other alternative. Time
is a great conservative power. Let us pause
at this momentous point, and afford the peo
ple, both of tbe North ana boutn, an oppor
tunity lor reflection, vvouiamat eoutn Caro
lina had been convinced of this truth belore bcr
nreciDitate action. I therclore appeal through
voutotne people oi i.e cuuutry, to ueciare in
their might, tbat the Union muat and shall be
preserved by all constitutional means. . I most
earnestly recommend that you devote yourselves
to tho question, now ton can do accompiiohea
in neace. All other questions, when compared
with this, sink into Insignificance.- Tbe present
is no time for palliatives. Prompt action Is ro
ot ired. A delay in longress to prescribe or re
commend a distinct and practical proposition
for conciliation, may drive ni to a poiut from
which it will be almost impossible to recede
A common ground on which conciliation and
harmony - may be produced ia surely not unat
tainable. Tbe proposition to compromise by let-
tins tbe Norihhave exclusive control of theter
rltnr above a certain line, and to eive Southern
institutions protection below that line, ought
receive universal approbation. Io Itself, Indeed.
it may not be entirely satisfactory, but when the
alternative is between reasonable concession
both sides and destruction of the Union, it Is
imputation on tbe patriotism of Congress to aa
sert that its members will hesitate a moment.
Even now the .danger is upon us. In several
Slates which) have not yet leceded, the forts,
arsenals end maglzines of tbe United States
bave been seized. This is by far the moat se
rious itep which bas been taken since the com
mencemeotof the troubles. This public prop
erty has long been left without garrisons and
troops far its protection, because no person
douted its security under.the flag of tbe coun
try In any Btate of the Union- Besides, our
small army bas soaroely been lufllcicnt to
guard our remote frontiers against Indian in
cursions. The seizure of this property, from
all appearances, bas been purely aggressive,
and not in resistance to any attempt ito coerce
a State or States to remain in tbe Uoion. At
the beginning of these unhappy troubles I de
termined tbat no act of mine should increase
the excitement in either section of tbe country.
If the political confliot were to end in oivll war,
it was my determined purpose not to commence
it, nor to furnish an exouse for:it, by an act of
the government. My opinion remains un
changed, that justice, as well as sound policy,
requires us still to seek a peaceful solution
of tbe questions at issue between the North
and the South. Entertaining this oonviction, I
refrained even from sending reinforcements to
Major Anderson, who commanded the forts of
Cbarlcsten harbor, until an absolute necessity
for doing so should make itself apparent, lest it
might be regarded as a menace of military
coercion, and thus furnish a provocation, or, at
least, a pretext, fur an outbreak, on the pirt of
South Carolina. No necessity for these rein
forcements seemed to exist. I was assured by
distinguished upright gentlemen, of South Car
olina, that no attack on Maj t Anderson was ia
tened; but that, on tho contrary, it was the de
sire of the State authorities, as much as it was
my own, to avoid the fatal const qnences wblcb
must eventually follow a military collision.
Here I deem it proper to submit lor your infor
mation,copies of a communication dated Decem
ber 28, 1860, addressed to me by R. W. Birn
well, J. H. Adams and James L. Orr. Commis
sioners of Sonth Carolina, with the accompany
ing documents, and copies of my answer thereto,
dated Desember 31. la further explanation of
Major Anderson's removal from Fort Moultrie
to Fort Sumpter, it is preper to sta e tbat after
my answer to the South Carolina Commission
ers, tbe War department received a letter from
that gallant officer, dated December 27, 1861),
the day after bis movement, from which tbe fol
lowing is an extract :
'I wili add.aa my opiulon, that many things
convinced me that the authorities of tbe State
designed to proceed to a hostile act evdently
referring to tbe orders dated December 11, or
the late Secretary of War. j Under tbis Impres
sion I could not hesitate tbat it was my solemn
duty to move my command from a fort which
we could not prbably bave held longer than
forty-eight or sixty hours, to this one, wbere my
power of resistance is increased to a very great
It will be recollected that the concluding part
of the order was in the following words:
"The smalloees of your force, will not permit
you, perhaps, to occupy more than one of the
three forts, but an attack on, or attempt to take
possession of either one of them, will be regard
ed as an act of hostility, and you may then put
your command into either of them which jou
may deem most proper to increase its pawer of
resistance. You are also authorized to take
similar defensive steps whenever yon have tan
gible evidence ot a design to prooeed to ao hos
It is said tbat serlons apprehensions are to
some extent estertaioed, in which I do not
share, tbat tbe peace of tbis District may be dis
turbed before tbe tUh of March next. In aoy
event it will be my daty to preserve it, and
this duty shall be performed.
In conclusion, it may be permitted me to re
mark, that IbaveoftQ wained my countrvmen
of the danger which now surround us. This
may be the last time I shall refer to tbe subject
omuiaiiy. i ieei tnat my duty bas been faith
fully, though It may be Imperfectly performed,
aud whatever the result may be, I shall carry
to my grave the consciousness, that I at least

WAREINGTON CITY, Jan. 8, 1861.
Ex. Gov. Medill Standing by the Treasury.
The Washington correspondent of the New
York Herald, writing on tho 13th, says:
Governor Medill, Comptroller of the Treas
ury, waa presented by Judge Bryan, of Ala
bama, as agent, with a warrant for sixty thou
sand doliara. This amount was claimed by
certain parties in Alabama for printing. Gov.
Medill refused to pay it, alleging tbat it waa
bogus." Mr. Clayton, First Assistant of tbe
Treasury, oalled upon Medill to know by what
authority be, the Comptroller, refused to pass
an aocount that bore the signature of Secretary
Thomas. Gov. Medill replied tbat he was the
best judge of the business of his own depart
ment. He expressed the opinion that the ac
count was a fraud, and therefore be could not
and would not sign and authorize its payment
until Mr. Dix, the new Treasurer, returns from
