SYNOPSIS OF PSMIDfiNT'S ME8SAGK
Richmond, Dec. 8. The President briefly
reviews events of past year, reniarkiug that
whilst our successes have not eqirailed oni
expectations, wc hate checked the euem
every where in bis advance.
Our r mis with foreign nations are dis
cussed at considerable length. The Presi
dent regrets there hits been no irtiproverneut
since message of January last, and that the
conduct of European nntieus is less impartial
and in some cases has assumed a chafactor
po?irive!y unfriendly. Commissioners were
sent ab'-oad for the purpose of entering into
legotiatious prjper t.;. fix relative rights and
obligations of Confederate and United States
nuder treaties entered into wii.Ii foreign
nations prior to separation, but this tender
on our part has beeu declined; bencs, as we
have been rcfusad the benefit of those treat
ies, they have certainly ceased to be binding,
and, in the opinion of the President, our
relations with" Kiir6peaa powers are aow
ontrolled exclusively by general rules of
message, and let these gaiuaay them, ! hws of nations
that can. Many of our people are run legislations upon the subject of finance is
stark mad after wealth. The nearer the
desolation of war cornea to their very
Qoora, tha more grasping and aTaiiciotte
earnestly recommended. Although the mag
nitude and duration of the war was not at
first anticipated, still, the resources of the
country are so ample and spirit of the people
they appear to grow, and tha more deaf, so devoted to its cause, thatrelief is within
to tha calls of God and country. This , our reach.
ii Do time to be striving after ricl.es ;
better than fail in oar independence,
that we aut render all our possessions to
our counfry's cause, for tbey will avail
na nothing if we are overcome.
Financial policy of the Government since
its formation is discussed, and tbo President
contends that whilst the provision of the per
manent constitution in reference to direct
taxation cannot be carried Into effect in the
mode pointed out, it is the plain duty of Con-
Evfml Spirit. grm ta execute tbi geaaral intiat af the (
"iraouics Hlil'piUU 10 r lllUl pUTpOSC
wire but partially iucceiRful, and aril has
low reached such aaagaituda as to admit of
ne other remedy than compulsory reduction
of currency ta arffouut required by bu-iuois
of I'm country. Amount thus required should
be accompanied by pledge thaf under no
strest of Circnmstancea will that amount be
excerdeu. No possible mod of nsiag csedit
of Government can be so disastrous as one
which disturbs basis of all excliange, and
render iraposio!e all cnlculatinus ui fatore
value, advaaelag in constautiy iocreaaiag
proportions the prices of all commodities,
lIso depreciating all fixed wages, salaries
aud incomes, as to render them inadequate
jjtiq otsubsiiience. If to these bo added
the still more fatal itiflueuce on the morals
and character of tbe people, to which I have
ahriady ndrerted, I am persuaded you will
concur in the conclusion, that an inflexib '
effort to a limitation of the eurrener nt fiai
sums, an indi.spensablu element of any sys
tem of finance, ouKht now to be adopted. The
volume of currency now outstanding can onlv
be protected in- the recovery of just claims,
substituting par note., or some other securi
ty. If the currency is not (really and per
manently reduced, the present state of inflat
ed prices will not only continue to exist, but
by the very fact of large amounts thus made
requisite in the conduct of tbe war, these
prices will reach rates' still more extravagant,
and tha whole system will fall under its own
weight, rendering the resumption of debt im
possible, destroying in whole value in the
hands of holders. If, on the contrary, feud
ed debt, with interest, secured by adequate
taxation, be substituted for outstanding cur
rency, its entire amount will be available to
holders, and Government will be in a condi
tion enabling it, beyond any probable con
tingency, to prosecute tke war ta a success
ful termination. It ia, therefore, demanded,
as well by interest of creditors as of eountry
at large, that evidences of public debt now
outstanding in thape of treaiury notes, be
converted into bonds bearing adequate in
terest, with provision for taxation sufficient
to insure punctual payment and final reduc
tion of whale debt.
The President recommends to considera
tion of Congress the report of Secretary of

from Kno.xtine ut Dalton are conrlicti'ng.
