It i not itranzo that the franier of the (n

hoiild not have fully comprehended the vx-

te a'aint arbitrary Mwer, many patriot
iiti. red from harravinjf fear of au absorp
tion of thr Mite jo eminent bv the (lenend
(om nimeiit. and many from a dread that the
Mate would break away from their orbiu.
Kut thf-very i;reatuei of our country should
allay the nppn In uiuu of ncroai hiOetit by
the (Jineral Government. The ubject that
conn- uii'piestionably uitliin it juriadiction

be obstructed by cxcens; so that there i a

-11011 of the luajoi ity" waa, at the bciur.inK
of theifiUury, enl'orwl by Jetre-an a the
vital principle of republics," and the events of
the last fur year have t-stabthdied, wo will
iiopr forever, that there lie no appeal to force.
I he iiuiiitiiiAhce of the L'uiou brin,'iw ith
it the auppcrt of the Mate (ovirnui nt in
II their n.liU;" but It ia not one of the right
of any M ite Government to renounce It ow n
pl.n r in the l'uiou, or to nullify the law of
the Union. The lari-st lilx-rty ii to lie main
tained in tin dieuion of the act of the Fed

It laws, except to the various brauche of that
io eminent itsi If, or to the people, who rant
to the int 111U r of the Legislative and of the
Fecutie Iep.irtment no te nure but a limit
ed one, and in that mauuer always retain, the
powers of redrcKi.
Thu over U'nty of the State" i the
lantfu ix of the C'onfe.leraejr, and not the
laiutuac of the Constitution. The latter con
tain the emphatic word: "The Constitu

hall Im made In pursuance thereof, and all
treaties made or which hall le made under
the authority of the United Mat.-, shall be the
supreme lavv of the land; and the judges in
every State shall be houud thereby, any
thhu In the Constitution or law of any State
to the contrary notwithstanding.'
Ccrtainlv the tioverniiient of the United
täte i a limited Government; und o 1 every
Mate Government a limited Government. With
us, tlii idea of limitation spreads through
every form of administration, general, state,
ami municipal, and rusts ou the icreat distin
KUihlmr principle of the recornitioo of the
rieht of tnsn. Tho nclent rcpuWici tbiorb-

b taken; In thecholee of diih. tilties, It Is the
amallcat riik; and to dimiul.h. aud, if possible,
to remove all danger, 1 have felt it incumbent
ou me to assert one other power of the General
Geverntnent the jowerof pardon. A no
State can throw -a 1I1 fence over the erlnio of
treason, the ovTcr of pardon It exclusively
vested In the L.ecuthe Government of the
United Mite, la vxerclini; that (tower, I
have taken every precaution to connect It with
the clearest recognition of the binding force of
the law of the United Mate, and an unqual
ified acknowledgement of the ifroat a.xlal
chancre, of condition in rejurtl to slavery which
has jjrown out of the w ar.
The next step which I have taken to restore
the constitutional relation of the Mate, has
been an Invitation to them to participate In the
hi-h otllee of amending the Constitution.
Every patriot must wish for a general am He,
ty at the earliest epoch ronUteut with public
aafety. For this frreat end tbi-relsneed of a
concurrence of nil opinions, and tbo spirit of
mutual conciliation. All parlies in the late
terrible eohtlict tuud work together in harmo
ny. It 1 not too much to uk. iu the name of
the whole people, that, on the one side, the
plan of restoration ahull proeoe.l in conformity
with a vvillinirnckS to rnt the disorders of the
past into oblivion; and that on the other, the
evidence of sincerity in the future maintenance
of the Union shall bo put beyond any doubt
by the ratltlration of the proposed amendment
to the Constitution, which provide for the
abolition of slavery forever within the limits
of our country. So long as the adoption of
this aincndmciit is delayed, so lotiir a ill doubt
and Jealousy and uncertainty prevail. This is
the measure which will etraec the ad memo
ry of the pnt; this I the measure which w ill
moat certainly call population, andettpit! and
security to those parts of tho Union that need
tlu-iu uioat. Indeed, it is not too much to ask
' of the Stales which an; now rcaumin their
places In the family of the Uuiou to frivc this
pledge of perpetual loyalty und peace. Until
it i done, the past, however much we may de
sire it, will not be forgrotteu. The ndr.ptlön of
the amendment reunites us beyond all power
of disruption. It heals the wound thut is still
Imperfectly closed; it removes idavcry. the cle

the country; it make us once tuore a united
people, renewed and htrcnthened, bound

The relation of the General (Government to
ward the four million! of luhaUtatits Whora
the war has called into freedom, have enframe J
my most serious consideration. On the pro
priety of attempting to make the frcedmen
elector by the proclamation of the Kxeeutive.
1 took fr my counsel the Constitution itself,
the interpretation of that intrum. nt by its
authors aud tin ir conteiiiiHirarics, und recent
legislation by Convrc. When, at the tirt
movement towards independence, tbe ( on irres
of the United Mate instructed the several
Mate to institute government of their own.
they left each Mate to decide for itself the con
dition for the enjoyment of the elective fran
ehise. Purins the period i f the Confederacy, there
continued to exist a very great diversity in the
ijUaliticatiotis of electors in the sevir:w Mates;
and even w ithin a Mate a iiitinction of quali
fications prevailed with regard to the cilicer
who were to be chosen. The Constitution of
the United Mates recognizes these diversities
when it enjoins that, in the choice of in. rubers
of the House of Reprusentative of the United
Mate,"the Hector In each State shall have
the qualification requisite f r electors of the
mot numerous hranrh ot" the M ite Lririsla
ture." After the formation rf the Constitution, it
remained, as before, the uniform uac f r ea h
Mate to enlarsr the twxly wf its eleetors. acrord
itift, to Us own jutlirinent, and, under this v-
1 111, one Mate nix r another his proceeded to

settle themselvr.
Kow that slavery I at aa end, or near It
end, th irreatnesa of It evil. In th point of
view of public economy, become more and
more apparent. Mtvcry was esscutially atno
noftoly of laftor, and as such locked the State
where it prevailed aralnst the incouiliiir of
free Industry. Where labor waa the proerty
of thecapltaliit, the while man was exclud's'l
from employ meat, or had but the aooond tnat
chance of tlndliiK it; aud the foreign emigrant
turned away from the region where hit condi
tion would be so precariout. With tbe de
struction of the monopoly, free, labor will hat-
ten from all part of the civilixed world to -sit
in dovelopin various ami Iranu-aaurable
resources which have hitherto lain dormant.
The elifht or nine Mate nearest the Gulf of
.Mexico have a soli of exuberant fertility, a
climate friendly to ton; life, and can Uklain a
denser population than it found a yet in any
part of our country. And the future influx of
population to them will be niAinly from the
North, or from tho most cultivated nations in
Uurope. From the suflerln? that have at
tended them during our late struggle, let us
look away to the future, which Is sure to tc
laden for them with greater prosperity than
has ever liefore. feen known. The removal of
the monopoly of slave labor it a pledge that
those reuiou will be peopled by a numerous
and enterprising population, which will vie
w ith any in the Union in eornpaetnest, In
ventive genius, wealth, and Industry.
Our Government springs from ami was made
for the people not the people for the Govern
ment. To them It owe allegiance; from them
it must derive its courage, strength and wis
dom. Hut, while the Government is thus
Itouml to defer to the people, from whom it
derives its existence, it should, from the very
consideration of Its origin, be strong in Its
power of resistance to the estaWishmeiit of in
equalities. Monopolies, perpetuities and class
legislation arc contrary to the genius of free
government, and oasjht not to lie ullowed. Here,
then- i no roon for favored classes or tnnnopaj
lie the principle cf our Government I that of
equal law s and freedom of Industry. Where
ev er monopoly obtain a foothold, it it sure to
1 a kource of danger, discord and trouble. We
hall but ful til our duties a legislator by ae
cording "equal and exact lu.tice to all men,"
special priv lieges to noue. The Government i
subordinate fc the people; but. as the
ng.-nt and representative of the people, It must
be held superior to monopolies, which, in
themselves, ought never to lie granted, and
which, u here tlrey oxit, miiit be subordinate
and yieid to the Government.
The Constitution confer- on Consrre the
right to reirulate commerce among the everal
State. It Is of the first necessity, for the
maintenance of th Union, that commerce
should be free aud unobstructed. No Mate
eart bejustlhed in any device to tax the transit
of travel and commerce between Stab-n. Tho
position of many Mates is such that, if they
were allowed to take advantage of It for pur
pose of local revenue, the commerce between
Mate might be injuriously burthroud, or even
virtually prohibited. It is best, while the coun
try i young, and the tendency to dangerous
monopolies of this kind i still feeble, to use
the imwer of Con -reus so a to prevent any
selfish lmxdlnetit to the free circulation of
men and ineTchraVdlse.-IA tar on travel and
merchandise, iu their transit, constitutes one
of the worst forms of monopoly, and the evil is
increased if coupled w ith a denial of the cht I -e
of route. When the vast extent of our coun
try is considered, It is plain that every obstacle
to the free circulation of romiiirrce between
the States ouht to lie sternly guarded against
by appropriate legislation, within the limits of
the Constitution.
Then-port of the- Secretary of the Interior
explains the condition of the publL- lands, the
transactions of the Patent Grace and Pension
ISuroau, the minwinent of our Indian affair,
the progress made in the construction of the
Pacilic railroad, and furnishes Information in
reference to matters of local Intel e it in the
District of Columbia. It also present evl
deneo of the sueoc. sful operation of the Ilome
"tead Act, under the provisions of which 1,160,
ViJ Acre of public lands were entered during
the lat tieaf year more than one-fourth of
the whole number of acrea aold or othewie
disposed of during that period. It it esti
mated that the receipts derived from this source
are sufficient to cover tbe eipebaea in client te
the survey and dtapoeal of tbe land entered
under this Act, and that pavmetil in cash to
lue eitsnt of from forty to fifty percent will
be made by settler, wbo mvy thus ataoy time

dorn Tbe land, ia the bands of industrious
etilen, wboM labor creates wealth ind con-
tribstea to the public resources, are worth more

ervsd si a solitude for furore purchsers.
The lamentable events of the lat four years,
and the sacrifice made by th gallant men of
our Army and Navy, have swelled the record
of the Pension Bureau to an unprecedented ex
tent. On the 30th dAy of June last, the totAl
number of pensioners waa 83,!cJ, requiring
for their annual pay, exclusive of expenses, the
sum of ffM,lr23,4sV. The number of applica
tions that have been allowed since that
dat. will require a large iucrease of this
amount for the next fiscal year: The
means for tse psymetit of the stipend due, us-
tler exi-t nz law, to our disabled soldiers and
siilors, and to tbe families of ucb a have per
ished in the service of the country, will no doubt
be cheerfully and promptly granted. A "rite
ful people will not hesitate to sarction any
mewure having for tkeir object tbe relief of
Silcier mutilated and families made fttber
lea in their frort to preerve otir natiooAl ex
istence. The report of the Potmaster General pre

of the Post Uthe Department during the vear.
The revenue of the past year from the loyal

equally true ill it a goml rtvrnae ayftem it
Ibe life of an ergaaisel government. I meet
you at a time when Ibe nation has voluntar
ily borJened Itself with a debt unprecedent.
ed la our anna!. Vast as Is us amount, it
fades away intw nothing when compare!
with the countless blessing that will be con
ferred npa euresonlry ami opon man, by
ike pretervalioB ef the anion's li'e. New,
en the first occasion of the meeting ef Con
gress tiace the retura of p, it is of the
utmost importance to inaugurate a Just poli
cy, which shall ai once be put in motion, and
which shall commend itself to those who
come after us for its continuance. We must
aim ai nothing lss than the complete fl ce
ment of the financial evils that necessarily
followed a state of eivil war. We must en
deavor Io apply the eailiest remedy to tbe de
ranged state of 'tie currency, and not shrink
from devising a policy, which, without beiag
oppressive to tbe people, khall iiomediiUel v
begin to effect a reJuctioa of the debt, and,
if persisted ia, discharge il fully within a
definitely fixed number of years.
It is our first duty te prepare in earnest for
our recovery from ibe ever-iaereaaing evils
of an irredeemable eurency, without a, eud
den revulsiei, and yet without untimely pre
erastlnatien. For that eud, we must, each
ia our respective positions, prepare tbe way.
I bold it the duly of the Kxeeutive to insist
on frugality in tbe eipeadilures; and a tpar
ing economy is itself a great nelionftl re
source. Of the banks le which authority
has beea given to issue Botes tucureJ by
boadt of Ike United Stales, we may require
the greatest snodsration and prudence, nod
the lew must Le rigidly enforced when its
limits are exceeded. We may, eich one of
us, counsel our Active and enterprising coun
try bub to be constantly I heir guard, le
liquidate debts contracted ia a paper curren
cy, and, by euoduciiog busiaess as nearly as
possible on a system of eash payments er
short credits, to hold themselves prepared to
return to tbe standard of geU and silver.
Te ii id our fellow-eltitea in the prndent man
agement ef their monetary affairs, tbe duty
devolves on us te diminiaL'by law tbe amount
of paper money now ia circulation. Five
years age the bank-note circulation of the
country amounted to not suuck more thaa
two hundred millions; aow the circulation,
hank and -national, exceeds eevea ' hundred
millions. Tbe simple statement of the fact
recommends more strongly than any word
of mine eould do, the necessity ef our retrain
ing this eipansiou. The gradual reduction
of the currency is tbe only measure that caa
tjTg the business of the country from dilis
trotis culamiiies; arid this can be almost im
perceptibly accomplished by gradual funding
the uational circulation ia securities that
may be made redeemable at tbe pleasure of
the Government.
. -Cur debt is doubly secure tlrtt ia tbe a
tiittlaltLTnnd alill greater undeveloped re
sources of the country ; and next in tne cha
racter of eur institutions. Tbe most intelli
gent observers among political economists
have not failed te remark, that the pubiie
debt of a country is safe ia proportion as its
people nre free; that the debt of a republic is
the safest ef all. Our history confirms and
establishes the theory, and is, I firmly be
lieve, destined to give it a stfll mere signal
illustration. The secret of this superiority
sprinzs not merely from the fact tbat in a
republic the national obligations are 'distrib
uted more widly through countless n ambers
in all elasses of society; il has its root ia tbe
character of ear laws. Here all men eon
tribute to the public welfare, and bear-their
fair share ';of ibe public burdens. i During
the war, nndrr the impulses ef patriotism,
the men of the great body ef tke people,
without regard to tkeir ewa comparative
want of wealth, thronged te eur ariniei and
filled our fleets of war, and bei themselves
ready to offer Ibeir lives for tbe public good.
Now, in their turn, the property aad income
of iho country should boar their just propor
tion of the burden of taxation, while ia our
iiapost system, through saeans of which in
creased vitality is Incidentally imparted to
all tbe industrial interests of tbe nation, the
dutirs should be io adjusted as to fall most
heavily on arlielet of luxury, leaving tbe
necessaries of life as free from taxation aa
the absolute wants of the Government, eco
nomically administered, will justify. No fa
vored class ahould demand freedom from
assessment, and tbe taiee should be to dis
tributed as not to fall unduly on tbe poor,
but rather on the ateumulated wealth ef tbe
country. .We should look at tke national
debt just as It Is not as a national blessing,
but as a heavy burden on the industry of the
country, to be discharged without no necessa
ry delay.
It is estimated by the Secretary of tbe
Treasury that the expensitares for the fiscal
yer ending tbe 30 ih of June, I8GÖ, will ex
ceed tho receipts $112,194,947. It is gratify
ing, However, te state teat it. ie also esumat
ed.ibat the revenue for tbe year coding the
30ih of June, 1&57, will exceed the expendi
tures in the auu ef ; $111. GTi,818.' This
amount, or so much as nay be deemed suffi
cient for tho purpose, rosy he applied to the
reduction of the public debt, which, en tbe
Slst day of October, lH, was $i,740,8ö4,750.
Fverjr reduction will diwiaisk the total
amount of interest to be paid, and so enlarge
Ike means ef still further reductions, until
the whole ball be liquidate ; and this, as
will be seen by the estimate of tke deoreterj
of the Treasury, may be aceomplrthed by an
nual payments oven within a pen a not ex
ceediog thirty years. 1 have I sun tnat we
shall do all this within a reasonable tioie;
that, as we Lave amated tbo world by the
suppression of a civil war which was thought
to be beyond tbe control ef any government,
we shall equally show ibe superiorly of onr
institution by the pronpt and falhful dis
charge of our naiioual obligations.

had, moreover, tke effect, to a great extent,
ie drive ibe American flag from tbe sea, and
to transfer much of our shippiog and our
commerce to the very Tower whose subjects
had created tbe necessity for euch a thing.
These eventi took rhce before I, was call
ed to the administration of the Government.
Tbe sincere desire for peace by which I am
Animated led me to approve the proposal al
ready made, lo submit tke questions which
bad thus arisen between the countries to nr
bitration. Those ooestions are of such mo
ment that they must have commanded the at
tention of tbe great powers, and are so inter
woven with tbe peace aol interests ef every
one of them ai to beve ensured aa impartial
decision. I regret to Inform you that Great
Britain declined the Arbitrament, but on tbe
otber band, invited us to the formation of a
joint commission to settle mutual claims be
tween tbe two countries, from which those
fer tbe depredationa before mentioned should
be excluded. Tbe proposition, in thai very
unsatisfactory form, Las Wen declined.
Tbe United States did not present tbe sub
ject ae an impeachment of the good faith of
a Power which wee ' professing the most
friendly dispositions, but ns involving ques
tions of public law, of which the settlement
is essential to the peace of uations; ami,
though pecuniary leparaiion lo their injured
cilitcn would have followed incideulally oa
a decision egaiusl Great Britain, such com
pensation was not their primary object.
They had a higher motive, and it was in the
interests of peace aud justice to estaMish im
portant principles oT international law.
The correspondence will be placed before you.
The ground oa which the British Minister
rests his justification is, substantially, that
the municipal law of a nation, and the do
mestic interpretations of tbat law, are tbe
measure of its duty as a neutral ; and 1 feel
houud to declare my opinion, before you and
before Ibe world, that that justification can
not be sustained before the - tribunal of na
tions. At the. name time I do not advise Jo
any present attempt at redress by acts of
legislation. For tbe future, friendship be
tween the two countries must 'rest on tbe
basis of mutual justice. '
From the moment of the e.lallishment of
our free Constitution, the civilized world Las
been convulsed by revolutions in the inter
ests of democracy or of monarchy; but
through all those revolutions the United
States have wisely and firmly refused to be
come propagandists of republicanism. It is
the only government suited to our condition;
bat we have never sought to impose it upon
others; and we have consistently followed the
advice of Washington to recommend it only
by the careful preservation and prudent
use ef the blessing. During all tbe inter
vening period the policy of European Powers
and of the United States has, on the whole,
beeen harmonious. Twice, indeed, rumore of
the invasion of some ports of America in (he
interest of monarchy, have prevailed ; twice
my predecessors have had occasion to an
nounce the views of this nation in respect to
such Interference. On both occasions the
remonstrance of the' United. Elates was re
spected, from a deep conviction, on. the part
f European Governments, that the system
of non-inierfereace and mutual abstinence
from propagandiam was the true rule for the
two hemispheres. Since those times we have
advanced in wealth and' power ; but we re
lain the came purpose to leave tbe natione of
Europe to choose their own dynaslies and
form their own system of government. This
consistent moderation may justly demand a
corresponding moderation. We ahould re
gerd it as a great calamity to ourselves, to
ibe cause of good government, nnd to the
peace ef tbe world, should any European
Power challenge tbe American people, as il
were, to tbe defence of republicanism against
foreign interference.
We cannot foresee and are unwilling to
consider what opportunities might present
themselves, what combinations might offer to
protect ourselves Against designs inimical to
our form of government. . . Tbe Uniied Slates
desire to aet in tbe future as they bave ever
acted heretofore; tbey never will be driven
from tbat course but by the aggression of
European powers, and we rely oa the wisdom
And justice of those powers to respect the
system of non-interference which has so long
been senctioned by time, And wlich, by its
good re tu Us, Las Approved itself to beth
continents.
The correspondence between tbe United
States and Fraoce, in reference to questions
which have become subjects of discussion
between the two Governments, will, at a
proper time, be laid before Congress.
When, on the organisation of our Govern
ment, under the Constitution, tbe President
of the United Slates delivered bi inaugural
address to tbe two House of Coogress, Le
saiJ te them, and through them to tbe coun
try and to mankind, that "the preservation
of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny
of the republican model of srovernmect are
justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finsN
ly slaked on tbe experiment intrusted to tbe
American people."
And the House of KepreentAtives answer
d Washington by tbe voice of Madison:
" W adore tbe invisible hand which has led
ibe American people, through so meny diS
culties, to cbcrish a .conscious responsibility
for tbe destinj of republican liberty." More
taaa seventy-six years have gliJed away
s!n:o these words were spoken; tho United
o at have past through severer trials than
wert foraecn ; and now, at thii tew epoch ia
our existence as one nation, with our Union
pi f fled by sorrows, and strengthened by con
Iii t and established by the virtue of the people
ihe greatness of the occasion invites us once
more to repeat, with solemnity, the pledges of
our lathers to bold ourselves answerable be
fore our fellow-men for tbe success of tbe re
publican .form ef government. Experience
bas proved its sufficiency in peace and in
war; it has vindicated iu authority throuzh
dangers and afflictions, and sudden and terri
ble emergencies, which would have crushed
any system that had beea less firmly fixed
in me beert or tke people
At the Inauguration of WAshinrton the for
elgn relations cf the country were few, and its
trade wa repressed by hostile regulations;
now ait me civuixea nauone oi toe globe wet

felt its way hesitatingly along an untried
path, with bates vj little bound together by

traditions extending over very few yean; now
