OCR FOREIGN RELATIONS.
Yesterday, the following highly in
teresting Message with the aocompa
nying Documents, was transmitted by
the President of the dated States to
Congress: Nat. Int.
To the Senate and House of Repre
sentativen
l transmit, herewith, to Congress,
copies of the correspondence between
tne atcreiary oi states the Miargid'
Affaires of His Brttanks Majesty, rel
alive to the meditation of Great Bri
tian in our disagreement with France,
and to tbe -determination of the
French Government to execute tbe
Treaty nf Indemnification, without
further delay, on the application for
payment by the agent of the United
States.
The grounds upon which the med
iation was accepted will be found
fully developed in the correspon
dence. On the part of France the
mediation had been publicly accepted
before the offer of it could be receiv
ed here. Whilst each of the two
Governments has thus discovered a
just solicitude to resort to aTl honora
ble means of adjusting amicably the
controversy between them, it ts a
matter of congratulation that the med
iation has been rendered nececsary
Under such circumstances, the antici
pation may be confidently indulged
that the disagreement between the
United States and France will not
have produced more than a tempera
ry estrangement. The healing ef
fects of time, a just consideration of
the powerful motives for a cordial
good understanding between the two
Nations, "he strong inducements each
has to re?p ct and esteem the other,
will no doubt soon obliterate from
their remembrance all traces of that
disagreement.
Of the elevated and disinterested
part (he Government of Great Britian
hs acted, and was prepared to act, 1
have already had occasion (o express
my high sense. Universal respect,
and (he consciousness of meriting it,
are with Governments as with men,
the just rewards of thoso who faith
fully exert their power to preserve
peace, restore harmony, and perpetu
ate good will.
1 may be permitted, I (rust, at this
lime, without a suspicion of the most
remote . desire to throw off censure
from (he Executive, or to point it to
any utber Department or branch of
the Government, to iefor lo the want
of effective preparation in which our
coun'ry was found at the late crisis.
From the nature of our institutions,
tbe movements of the Government in
preparation for hostilities most ever
be too slow fur the exigencies of un
expected war. I submit it then to
you, whether the first duly we owe to
the People who have confided to us
their power is not to place our country
ia such an attitude as always to be so
amply supplied wiih the means of self
defence as to a-flord no inducement iu
other nations to presume upon our
forbearance, or to expert important
advantages from I sudden assault,
either upon our commerce, our sea
cost, or our interior fioutier. In case
of ihe commencement of hostilities,
during the recess of Congress, the
time inevitably elapsing before thai
body could be called together, even
under the moil favorable ciicumstan
ces, would be pregnant with danger,
and, if we escaped without signal
disaster or national dishonor, the haz
a rd of both unnecessarily incurred,
could not fail to excite a feeling of
deep reproach. 1 earnestly recom
mend to you, therefore, to make such
provisions, that in no future time shall
we be found without ample means to
repel aggression , even although it may
come upon us without a note of warn
ing. We are now, fortunately, to
situated, that tbe expenditure for this
purpose will not be fell, and, if it
were, it would be approved by those
from whom all its means are derived,
and for whose benefit only it should
bs used wilh a liberal economy und
an enlightened forecast.
In behalf ot these suggestions, I
cannot forbear repealing the wise pre
cepts of one whose counsels cannot he
forgotten: "The United Slates ought
not to indulge a persuasion that, con
trary to ihe order of human events,
they will forever keep at a distance
thoae painful appeals to arms, with
which the history of every other na
lion abounds. There is a rank due to
the United States among nations
which will be withheld, if not abso
lutely lost, by the reputation of weak
ness. If we desire to avoid insult, wo
must be able (o repel it. I f w- desire
to secure peace, one of tho must pow
erful instruments of our rising prospe
rity, it must be known that we are, at
all times, ready (or war.

INDIAN DEVASTATIONS.
The whido'of tlwconatry south of St.
Augustine has beon laid waste during
the past week, and not a building of any
value h-li standing. There is not a sin
glo house now remaining between (his ci
ty and Cape Florida, a distance of 259
milles; all, all, have been burnt to the
ground. On Sunday morning last, a
dense smoke was seen in the south, in the
direction of Bulowville, and it was con
jeclured that the buildings on (hat planta
lion were in flames, and it was known
that there wero none but Indians in that
direction. The smoke was seen in the
snmo direction on Tuesday. On Thurs
day, it was reported that General Ilcrnnn
den's bouses at St. Joseph's were on fire,
and in the afternoon this report was enn
firmed by two of General Herntindcs ne
groos, who stated that they had rode from
Main Coinpru to St. Joseph's that morn
ing, and came wftbin a quarter of a mile
of the house ; atxl had a fnll vtiiw of the
burning building. They state (he hous
es lo have been lired about 7 o'clock that
morning, and that every hause except
tho corn house was burning at the time
they were there. The Indians h id post
ed sentinels at eo;ne distance from the
houses, while the main body were dan
ring around the lire. The negroes can
give us no correct idea as to the number
of the Indians, but say that there was a
laTge:crowd of them. Tho plantation
of Col. James Williams was also set fire
lo nnd destroyed at the samo time. Mr
Duponl's plantation ol linen Retire is al
so destroyed. There now Tmniiins no
doubt ef Ihe destruction of Bulowville.
Itisthe opinion of many that after t Ire
battle at Dunlawion the Indians procured
a largo reinforcement, nnd returned lo ul
tack Bulowville. The amount of proper
ty destroyed is immense; nl Bulowville
alone, the buildings are said to have cost
50,000 dollars. The property destroyed
during the past week, on these, plantations
caatioi jo less man 200,000 dollars.
Fire Apparatus. We find in a
late London paper, the following de
scription of the means provided by
ihe London Fire establishment for
rescuing persons from houses on tire,
whin (he ordinary means of escape
are obstructed.
Firs', each engine has two seven
feet lengths of scaling ladder, con
structed upen the psltern of the En
glish military scaling ladders. The
two lengths, when joint d, which can
be done in an instant, from a ladder
of 13 feet one foot of length being
lost in ihe junction. As the length
of the ladder carried by tho different
engines are precisely on the same
construction, the arrival of a second
engine admits of an immediate doub
ling of the length of ladder Three
engines and there are genenally from
eight to nine at any fire of msnitude
would afford a ladder of 40 ft. length
which is amply sufficient for any or
dinary risk; but, if necessary, it might
by further junctions be lengthened al
most indefinitely. At the lime of the
conflagration of the Houses of I'arlia
ment, the roof of different parts of the
buildings was mounted from the
ground by means of ladders thus form
ed. About two months back a few
pattern lengths nf these ladders, of
improved strength and fining, were
made by order of the Committee of
Insurance Directon, and being ap
proved of. orders have been since giv
en for several sets of a similar make.
The engines likewise carry a large
and strong canvass sheet, made with
hand-holes al the sides so that when
held extended, a person might j imp
int4t from a lofty wiodow, without
any grest fiat 'rd,
Ti.edhk'd o. eans ol assistance car
ried arc twj strong lines if two inch
rope, and a slighter one each of great
length. The end of ona of these rop s
being thrown into the window, which
by a small attached weight at the end
could be eas ly (ffected, would afford
lo the endangered person a mode of
escape that the most timid might avail
himself of. Ho would have nothing
o do hHt to pass the rope once round
8 Led post, a strong hook, atir ofth
grate, a leg of a large taolp, or round
any larg-e heavy article of futni'ure or
almost any fixture, and then fastening
the end round his w.iist, and getting
out of ihe window, the fireman, who
would retain the other end of the rope
would gradually lower him to the
ground. There are other obvious
modes in which th? ropes mibt be
rendered available.
The facetious Wasbingion corres
poirdenl of the N, V. Transcript says.
Yesterday, as I was returning from
the Capitol lo my lodgings, 1 saw a
horse, attached to a sleigh, come dash
ing down tl. avenue, and at the next
moment a most piercing cry of 'stop
himl stophimV proceeded from the
Indy within-; who was accompanied by
a gentleman. I sprung at the bridle
of the animal, but missing it. stumbled
and by good fortune pitched beyond
the opposite side of the horse and es
capeii the vehicle and the hoofs of the
animal. At tho instant 1 recovered;
I found the lady on lop of me. It
seems that, being nily frightened
when she found that I had failed (o
stop the horsrt, she leaped from the
sleigh and landed oh my precious car
cas.'. I rose wilh all possible expedi
lion, and not being able to decide at
ihe moment whether I was dead or
alive, I proceeded lo raise the lady
from her postrate condition. "Are
you iijured, madam?" enquired I.
"No, I think not bjt my neck might
have been broken for you, sir," was
the prompt reply; "I wish I was a
man I'd see if I couhl'm atop an un
ruly horse! ' continued the lady, to
my unutterablo dismay. Tlt9 next
lime a horse runs away with that lady
she may stop him if she can I wont
attempt any act of the kind. Til lake
the advice of Paul Pry, and never do
a good-natured thing again in my life.
London un London' d, Some of
the late Liverpool papers have started
the idea of removing the seat of Gov.
eminent from London to that city,
for the nurDOse of diminishing ihe
political excitementand revolutionary
influence of that democratic metropo
lis. Liverpool is not satisfied, it
seems, wilh having robbed London
with the best part of its trade. The
fearful examples afforded by the histo
ry of France or rather, of Paris would
seem to give some value lo the ides,
if it were practicable, which it mam
festly is not. London is to powerful
to relinquish its hold on Government.
It is stated that his Majesty is very
well disposed to the idea, and that an
invitation from the inhabitants of Liv
erpool to take up his royal residence
in that neighborhood would meet wilh
his favorable, attention. There can be
no doubt, however (hat Ihe attempt to
remove the Court nnd Parliament from
London would immediately revolu
tionize England. Metropolitan
WASHINGTON MONUMENT.
