means of defence. I refer you, also, to his rcport for a full statement of the con dition of the Indisn tribes within our ju risdiction. The Executive has abated no efibrt in carrying into efiect the well establishcd policy of the Government, which contemplates a rcmoval of all the tribes residing within the limits of the eeveral States, beyond the limils , and it is now enablcd to congratulate the coun try at the prospect of an early cousutna lion of this object. Many of the tribes havc already made grcat progress in the atts of civilized life; and through the op peralion of the schools established among them, aided by the efiorts of the pions inen of various rc'.igious denominations wbo devote themselvcs to the tasfc of their improvement we may fondly hope that, the remains of the formidable tribc: which wcre oncethemastersofthis coun try will, in their transition from the sav nge state to a condition of refincraent and cultivalion, add another bright trophy to sdorn the labors of a well-directed phil anthropy. The accompanying report of the scc rctaiy of the Navy will explain toyou thc situation of that branch of the service. Thc prescnt organization of the dcpart ment imparts to its operations great effi ciency. but I concur fuliy in the proprie ty of a division of the Burcau of con etruclion, oquipment and rcpairs into Iwo Bureaux. The subjecls, as now arrang cd, are incongruous, and rcquirc to a cer tain extcnt, informalion and qualifications altogclher dissimilar. The operations of the squadron on the coast of Africa havc been conductcd with all due atleution to the objccts which Icd to its organization : and I am happy to say that the officcis and crcws have cn joyed the best.possible health, uuder the systcm adoptcd by the office r in command. It is believed the Ifnited States is the on ly nation nhich has, by its laws, subject ed to the punishmcnt of death as piralcs, those who may be engaged in the slavc trade. A similar enactincnt an the part of other nations, wouhl not fail to be at tended with beneficial results. In cnnscnucnce of thc difficulties that havc exiated in the way ofsecuring tilles for ihe necessaty grouiids, opcratiom havc ucl yet been com:nenced towards the establishment of the Nau-yatd at Mernphis. So soon as the title is pcr fected, no furthcr delay will be admittcd to interf cnc. It is well worthy yoar con oiderat'ron, whether Congrcss should not direct the cstablis'.iment of a rope walk in connectiim with the contcmplated Na vy Yard, as a mcasure not only of econ omy but as highly useful and ncccssary. The only establishment of the sort now cnunectcd with the service is localed at Boston; and the advautagis of a similar establishment, convcnient to the hemp grouing rcTton, must be apparent to all. The rcport of the Secretary presents other tnattcis to your ro isideraticn, of an important characler in connection with the service. In refcrring you to the accompanying report of the Postmaster General, it affnrds ine contmued grEtincation to be able to ndveitto the facl, that tlie afTairs of the Dcpirtment, for the last four years, have been so ccndticted as, from its unaided rcsourccs, to meet its large cxpendiiures. On my coming into office, a debt of nearly 500,000 existed against the Depart ment, which Congress discharged by an npproprialion from the Treasury. The Departmcut on the 4th of March next, will be found, under the management of the prescnt eflicient board, frce of debt or cmbarrassment, which could only have been done by the observanc and practice of the greatest vigilance and economy. The laws have contemplated thro'out that the Department should be self sustained; but it may become necessary, with the wisest regard to pnblic intrest, to intro duce amendments and alterations in the systeni. Thcre is a strong desire manifested in many q'tarters, so to alter the tarift" of leitcr postage as to reduce the amcunt of tax at present imposed. Should such a measure be carried into effect, to the full extent dcsircd, it cannot well be doubted but that for the first year of its operation a diminished revenue would be collected, the supply of which would necessatily conitiiute a charge upon the Ireasury. Whether snch a result would be desira We, it will be for congress in its wisdom to determine. It may in general be as- erted, that radical alterations m anysys tcm should rather be brought out gradu a!Iy, than by sudden changes ; and by pursuing this prudentpolicy in the reduc tion of Ietter postage, the department may itill sustain itself throucrh the revenue which would accrue by the increase of letteis. J he state and condition of the public treasury has heietofore been such it to have precludcd the recommcndalion caa dono more than rccouimcuu w.c general principles which should govern in its cxecution. I rcfer you to the rcport of tha secre tary of war, for nn exhibition of the con ditioa of the army; and rec.ommeiid to you, as well north of your best consid eration, many or thc iiiggestions it con lanw. The Secretary in no dcgree cx-a-rcrates the importance of pressing for n'ard, wilhout delay, in the work of crcc ling and finishing the fiirtifications to whtcli he particularly alludes. Much has been duiic towards placing our citics and roadsteds iii a state of security a gainst the hazards of hostile attack with in the !ast four years ; but considcring the new elements which havc been, of late jeais, cmploycd in the propelling of ehips, and thc fotmidable implemenls of destructicn which bave been brought in to service, we cannot be too actire or vi gilcnt in preparing or protecting the of any matcnal change. The difficulties J Iarged prosperity of the country, are des npon this head have, howevcr, ceased, tined, at an early day, to receive the ap- f.nft inrrrp aic.-rption is now lelt to tne . ....6 government. I canuot too strongly urgothe policy ofau thorizing thc establishment of a lioe ofsteam- tnr the iransnortation of the mail. The cx- amplc of the DriIih Government iswell wor- gratifying reflcction that, as my sole ob thy of imitalion in this rcspect. The belief jecl thioughout has been to advance the mcnuariSing from the transportation of mail maticr to foreic couDtries, would operatc of itself as an imlucemeut to cause individuals to undertake that braucl. of thc task; andlhe remuucraiion oi ine uoveruincm wuuiu uuu- sistin the addition readilv made to our iteam navyin casc otemergency by Ihesljipssoem- ployed. Should this suggestion roeet your approval, thc propricty or placing such ships y&i; Thc application ofsteam to the naval warfarc, . . . . rogently recommcnus an exieusne sieam marine as important in cstintmg tue tlelen rrs nf the counliv. Fortunately, this mavbe ) attained, by us to a grcat extent without in i curring any large amount of cxpenditure. Steam vessels to uc engagea in mo iraos portatious of the mails ou our principal wa tcrcourscs, lakes aud parts of our coast, could also he so constructcd as to be eflicient as war vcsscls when needed; aod would of themselvcs conslilute a formiilahle force in order to repel attacks from abroad. We cannot be blind to thc fact.that other nations have already added large numbers of steam ships to their naval armaments, aud tbis new and powerful agent is dcstincd to revolution ize the condition ofthe world. It becomcs the Unitcd States thercfore, lookin? to their se curity, to adopt a similar policy; and the plau suggestcd will ennlile them to do so at a smali comparativc cost. I take the greatest pleasure in beanng icsumouj o luc auu u,umg .,,uuS- ofthe members ofthe executive cabinet. Each, in his appropriate sphcre, has ren. dcred me thc most cfficieut aid in carry ing on the government, and it will not I trust, appcar out of place for me, to bear this public testimonv. The cardinal ob- jects which should cver be held in view oy thosc cntrusted with tne administra tion of public affairs, are rigidly, and without favor or affection, so to interpret the national will, cxpressed in the laws. asthat injustice should be doncto none justice to all. This has bccn the rule upon which the)' havc acled ; and thus it is believed that few cascs, if any, exist, wherein our fellow citizens who from time to time have been drawn to thc seat of government for the settlement of their transactions with the government, have cone away dissatisficd. Where thetesti mony has been perfccted, and was es tccmed satisfactory,thcir claiins have been promptly auditcd, and this in the absence of all favoiitism or partiality. The govern ment which is not just to ilsown people, can neither claim thc:r affection nor the rcspect of the world. At the same time thc closcst attention has been paid to those matters which rclate immediately to the great conccrns ofthe country. Order and elficiency in cach branch of thc public service have prcvailed, accompanied hy a system of thc most ngiu responsibiiily on the part ofthe receiving and disburs- ing agents Tlie tact, in tllustration ol the truth of this remark, deservcs to be noticed that the revenues ofthe govern ment, amounting in the last 4 years to upwards ofS 120,000,000, have been col lected and disbursed, through the numer ous government agents, without the loss, by default, of any amount worthy of se rious commentary. Thc appropriations made by Concrcss for thc improvement of the rivers ofthe west and ofthe hnrhors on the lakes, arc in a course of judicious cxpenditure under euita blc agents, and arc dcstincd, it is to bc bopcd, to realize. all the bcneflls dc&igncd to be ac- comphfchcd by Congrcsr. 1 cannot liowcvcr guflicicnt'y imprcss upon Congrcss the grcat importar.ee of withholding appropriations from improvements which are not asccrtain cd. bvnrevious cxamination and survey, to be ncccssary for thc shcllcrand protcclion of tradj from ihe dangcrs ol storms and tem. ncsts. Wilhout this nreraution, the cxpend llurcs arc but too ant lo cnure to the bcncflt of individuals; without rcfercnce to the only considcration which can rcndcr them confti tutional, thc public intcrcsts and thc general good. I cannot too camcstiy urge upon you the intercsts of this District, over which, by thc constitution, Congrcss has cxclusive jurisdic- tion. It would be dccply to bc regrclled should thcre bc ground to complain of neg lcct, on thc nartofa communitv which, de- tached as it is from the parcntal carc of thc states of Virginia and Maryland, can only cxpcct aid of Congress, as its local Iegisla ture.
