Slut I have to acknowledge the receipt of
your uefpaicnc. oi .Novcmocr n, irto. 19,1
November 13, (No. 19.) and November 15,
(No. 30.) These pspers, tn their order, open
and clear np tho subject of the action of Rus
sia upon the proposition which was recently
made to her and to Great Britain by France,
for s Joint appeal of all three of tho Powers to
the United States. The consideration which
they suggest has, however, already been antl-
cipaicu in. my previous instructions.
I havo now onlv to renew the expression of
the satisfaction or the President with the pru
dent, Just, and friendly course pursued by the
Government or the Ciar on that Interesting oc
casion. On renting your despatch I cannot avoid see
ing that some exsggeratlons of our affairs,
which attended tho political canvass which haa
been recently held hero, have been presented to
Europe, even by friends or thla country, as
portentous facts, and have been Influential In
Indncing tho ill Judged proceeding or Mr.
Drouyn do l'Hnjs, and investing, it with an
Importance far beyond Its merits.
aii meso exaggerations, navmg nad in some
measure their desired local and temporarv aue-
coss, have now passed away. Even those who,
on cither side, got them np In the heat of srgu-
mont nave lorgouen mem, ana tno wnoio
country, with all tho departments or the Gov
ernment, haa bocome satisfied that the progress
or the Government In suppressing tho Insur
rection is satlsfsctory. I am not disposed to
Jndge foreign nations harshly for their want of
confidence In the maintenance or the Union,
since they aro naturally misled by our own
partisan excitements, the nature and char
acter or which must bo vory Imperfectly under-
bwjuu Burundi
I think that if tho European statesman
ahould undertake a survey of hla own political
hemisphere, ho would hardly find a nation
which, at this tlmo, Is more thoroughly con
vinced of Its present safctv and assured wcir.re
than the United Btstes. Our groat expedition
assigned to Major General Banka has moved
towards Its destination, aad It will soon be
heard from. Our forces aro clearing the valley
or tho Mississippi. Another army la pressing
the insurgents In Virginia. Our Iron-clad fleet
is growing witn rapiuity, and It will soon re
duco the last remaining Insurgent port. Tho
principal part or Tcnnesseo Is restored. Elec
tions are being held In portions or several or
mo insurrectionary Btatcs, wmen will restore
In thoso regions tho civil administration of tho
Federal Government.
A now rear I j thus likely to open with better
auspices for tho country than either of Its pre
decessors, 1801 and 1803.
It Is well to be watchful of Intrigues abroad,
ami to guard, so far as Is possible, against mis
apprehensions, much moro against Injurious
policies on the pert of foreign States i but, on
tho other hand, tho couutrysand tho Govern
ment rcnutro every one of lta representatives
to bo assured, and at all times to bo prepared
iu osaaro iuo aiaio 10 wnicn no is accroaitca,
that any foreign Power which thinks this peo
ple Is ready to divide and destroy Itself Is mis
tsken, and that If any such State thinks thst
thoUnloB can be destroyed by Intorrerenco
from anyforolgn quarter, this belief Is even still
more erroneous.
The President's message and tho reports of
the Secretaries of the Treasury, War, and the
Navy, will be very useful in enabling yon to
show to Prlnco Gortchacow the gronnda of the
nubile ronOdonco In tho stability or the Union,
which I havo eudeavored to describe.

Sibi Your despatch of November 23 (No.

pernsal or It produces the same Impression
which follows the reading of the despatches of
all our representatives In Europo, namely, that
the Government of tho United States Is rec.rd.
od by foreign Governments as weak and In
critical circumstances. Tho existence of such
an opinion in Europe is natural. Our utter
ances, which aro controveraial because wo aro
really free and confident of tho national safety,
however wo may seem to despond, too often
present tho Government In this light. This
Is the result of a commcndabla Impatience
for greater activity, with the promise or
greater and speedier results. The insurgent
emissaries In Europo Inculcate the same opin
ion, and their prejudiced or Interested European
sympathizers havo tho public car In Europe,
as losurgcnt exiles alwjya do. Nothing,
however, could be more Injurious to the conn
try than a seeming admls.lon or tho Justieo
of the opinion in question by this Govern
