The City Marshal is doing a good job in weeding out the dogs. One bully suffered niartrydom on the street Tuesday afternoon at the mouth of a six-shooter. If it can be demonstrated that these filthy and dangerous creatures that infest every street and by-way of the city, are of any use or ornament to society, thcnil would be well to encourage the raising of “dorgs;” but while there is no testimony to rebut the settled opinion of the community that these animals can be* dispensed with, the City Marshal's summary manner ol' dealing with them will be endorsed by all good citizens.

The Diplomatic and Consular Ap propriation hill was reported from Committee on appropriation*, and made the special order tor Tuesday next. It appropriates £8.830.47 again-t 81 In.734.00 in a similar hill last year. A ir.e--;’.e f.olil the President on the sub ject of American commerce was presented and read. 'Pile President declares it to he the national humiliation of this country to he compelled to pay from twenty to thirty millions a year ocean freights, which should he shared by American citizens with the people of other na tions. He favored direct money subsidy as h ss liable to abuse than indirect, and recom mend* 1 the passage of the* two bills reported tr<»m the Special Committee. Mr. Jirooks of N. Y. remarked that the re moval of duty on iron would do more than subsidy to revive American Commerce, and j the message was tlu n withdrawn. The House then resumed its regular husi-! nc-s. Mr. Butler of Massachusetts introduced a ; bill authorizing the President to accept the j re-iguaiion of any Judge of any U. 8. Court. K* k-rred. Mr. Kerr of Indiana, from Committee on Election*, made a minority report in one of the Louisiana cases, with a resolution that Mr. Hunt the contestant was entitled to a seat instead of Mr. Sheldon, the sitting member. A recess was then taken. At the evening session the Committee of the Whole on the Tariff bill was addressed for two hours by Mr. Holman in favor of Free Trade, and after further debate the House ad journed. FROM WASHINGTON. The Message of the President in Re lation to the Decline of American Ccminerco. Washington. March I’d. The following is the message ot the Presi dent in relation to the decline of American Commerce : In the Executive Message of December Cfh. 1*00. to Congies*. the importance ot taking .-trps to revive the d* caving merchant n.a it e was urged to a special message and promised at a tuture day during the present session, recommending more -pvcitieialh plans to accomplish this r. suit. Now that the C ommittee of the Il«»u*e of Bepi cseiita tive- that was entrusted ithtliis labor of a*cer - taining the cause ot the decline ot American Commerce has completed it- work and -ui - milted its ri port to the legislative branch ot the g »vernment. I deem this a fitting time I to exe ute that promise. Th\ very able, calm and exhaustive report ot the committee points out the grave wrong* w hich produced the decline in our commerce. It i* a national humiliation that we are now compelled to pay from 20 to iiO million.* ot 1 dollar* annually, e.\elu*ive of passage money w hich w e should share to other nation*, to ' foreigners for doing work which should be; done by American owned and American i manned vessel*. 1 his is a direct draw upon resources of the country of just so much money, and equal to casting it into the sen. : >o far a* the nation i* concerned. A nation of the ever-increasing interior resources ot ' the United Mates, extending as it does from j one to the other of the great oceans of the , world, with the industrious, intelligent and energetic population, must one day possess a full share of the commerce ot these oceans, no matter at what cost: delay will only in crease the cost and enhance the difficulty of attaining that result. I therefore put in an earnest plea for early action in this matter in a way to secure the increase of American Commerce. The advanced period of the year, and the fact that no contract for ship building will probably be entered into until tile question is setthd by Congress; and the further fact that if there should be much de lay. all large vessels contracted for this year will fail of completion before winter set* in, and will therefore be carried over another year, induces me to request your early consid eration of the subject. 1 regard it-of such grave importance, affect ing every interest of the country to so great an extent, that any method which will gain this end will secure the national blessing of building ships and navigating them, and utilizing the vast capital at home. This business employs thousands of work nun in constructing and manning; it creates a home market for produce of the farm and shop: it diminishes the balance of title against up, precisely to the extent ot tmghts and passage mom y paid to American vessels, and gives no superiority upon the seas * t in estimable value in case ot* toreign war. Our navy at the commencement ot the late war consisted ot’ less than 100 vessel**, of about 1.*>0,0<H) tons, and a force of about KOUO men. We drew from the merchant and l marine which had cost the government noth ing but which had been a source of national wi ilth, six hundred veweds, exceeding 1.000, UU0 tons, and about 70,0(H) men to aid in the i suppression of the rebellion. This state ; ment demonstrates the value « f the merchant j marine of a means of national defence in* time of war. The committee on the cause of the rcduc ! tion of A me r Mian tonnage, after investigating 1 the cause of its decline, submit two bills, which if adopted we believe will restore to > the nation its maritime report. Their re port shows with great minuteness the actual and comparative American tonnage at the time of its greatest prosperity, and the actual and comparative decline since, together with the causes and exhibits of the statistics of material interest in reference to tin* subject. As the report is before Congress, I will not i i reeapitualate any statistics, but refer only to , ' the methods recommended by the committee j | to give hack to us our lost commerce. As aj ! general rule it can he adopted. I believe j I that a direct money subsidy is less liable to j ' abuse than indirect aid given to the same en terprise. In this case, however, my opinion is that subsidies while they may be given to j | specific lines of steamers or other vessels. | 1 should not be exclusively adopted, hut in ad- j dition to subsidizing very desirable lines of ocean traffic, general assistance should be i given in an effective way; and I therefore j commend to your favorable consideration the two bills proposed by the committee and re ferred to in this message.

Forsyth of the steamer Manhattan ar rived to-day. lie denies the report that he refused assistance to the Samaria, which he passed March 12tli, hound east under full sail, lie saw nothing to indicate that the stranger was in distri ss. though she could have easily attracted attention by changing her course, taking in sail or firing a gun, none of which she did. The Steamer City of Boston Some of the engineers of the city of Boston before sailing on tier last voyage, said the condition of the propeller necessitated running of the machinery one third faster, whereby the danger of lire was increased, and for that reason special precautions had been taken in the organization of the fire brigade, in which all the officers and men were enrolled and obliged to do duty.
