KECEPTIONS BY PRESIDENT JOHNSON.
ADIHESH BY THE BK1TISH lf*B VSRAPOR.
Sir Frederick W. A. Bruce wo-aon Thursday ‘a,r0
doted to tie Present by the Acting Secretary of S!8,e'
and presented his credentials Envoy Extraordinary
aai Vin'-ter Plenipotentiary >of her Btitannir Ma e-iy
to th:» Government. SirFm^nck made the follow ing
remarks up >a the occasion . j
Mr President—it is with dfeep and aincete coujern that
1 ua'> * !■» accompany mv.mr.-t official act with expre^
aiona of condo"en’c." oi*-S tturJay last the ceremony
tha- t ilsc- place to-d iyf was to h v.i bet n performed, bu’.
the gracioni intentions of the late lamentef President
ere G,rest tiled *uy events which have plunged tun*
country in c -ostentation and affliction, and w hich will
call forth/In Great Britain feelings of horror osweb as
Of pr>fc,iin ] sympathy. i ,
it b e o.nei. therefore, my duty, sir. t > present the e t*r
fronts my S jvereign. of which I am tin bearer, to you. as
President of tb > United States, and It la with pleasure
thJat I convev th< assurances of regard and go td will
which h »r M >jesty entertains to ards yon sir. a-Presi
(bint of the United S.ates. I am further cirected to ex
p |e-s her Ma:*-st)'s friendly disposition towards the grest
na Jon of which you ar; Chief Magistrate, and her Lea ty
go.wi w slies for its pc »ce. prosperity and welfare.
. Majesty has nothing more at heart than to concili
a*" those relations of amity and good .understanding
•which have so long and so happily existed between the
two kindred nations of the Uu t d.States and Great Br tiin,
and t is in that spirit that I am directed to perform the
d:-t e* of the important and honorable post confided to
me. Prnitme. sir. to soy that it shall be the object of
mv earn-st endeavors to carry out my instructions faith,
ft] ly n this respect, and to express the hope, sir that you
will favor tbly consider my attempts to merit your appro
batio.u. ia i to give elect to the friendly intentions of the
kfueeu and of her Majesty's Government. I hove the
hon >" to pla-c in your hands the letter of credence <• in
fidel to me by her Majesty.
To which President Johu.-on replied
■wir Frederick W. A. Bruce—The cordial and friendly
sentiments which yon have expressed on the part Of her
H-ttnn.c Majesty give me great pleasure. Greut Britain
s i 1 the Gni ed '-.ate- by tlm extended and variedi forms
of c mtnerev be1 ween them, the contiguity <*i portions ui
their possessions, and the similarity of their language
and law*. ere drawn into constant and intmate infer
course. At the same time they are from the same causes
exposed to frequent occasions of misunderstanding only
to be corrected by mutual forbearance.
So eag-rly are the i»eople of the two countries engaged,
throughout’ almost the whole world, in the pursuit of
sin: Ur commercial enterprises, accompanied Dy national
rivalries and Jmlousies. that at tiret sight it would almost
*eein that tbe two Governments must be enemies, or at
l>est cold and calculating friends.
So devoted are the two nations throughout all their
danu in. and even in their most remote terr tory and co.
lonial possession*, to the prinoiples of civil rights and
constitutional liberty, that, on the other lianl. the »n
perfi-rial o ..-.-ver might erroneously count upou a con
tin e-d con —rt of action and sympathy, amounting to
an a I'ance betw.en them. Each is charged with the
develo men! of the progress of the human race, and each
ia iw sphere is subject to difficulties and trials not par
—T* united in by the other.
The interests of civilization and ol humauitv require
that Iae two should befriend?. 1 have always known
ami accounted as a fact honorable to both countries
that the Queen ot England is a sincere and honest well
wisher to the United States. 1 have been equally frank
and explicit in the opinion that the friendship of the
United States towards Great Britain ia enjoined by nil
considerations of interest and of sentiment affecting the
character of both.
You will therefore be accepted as a Minister frieudly
and w dl disposed to the maintenance qf pc»ce and the
hon >r of both countries. You will dnd myself and all
mv associates acting in accordance with the same en
lightened policy and consistent sentiments, and so
I am sure that it will not occur in your case that either
vourseit <*r this Government wdl ever h ive cause to re
gret that such an important rilationship existed at
Mich a time. •
P'.IX.'ENTATIOS OF THE BJP1.0MATIC COKT-.
Shortly after the ree ption of Sir Frederick Bruce the
various members of the Diplomatic body were presented
to the Acting Secretary of State. As the Dean of that
body. Bann Von tterolt, the Prussian Minister,address

number «i gentlemen, a-king the Hon. Joh’n Mi
6or Sr.tts to at once repair to that city. The call
doe- not express the reason why they desire his
p-esence, but we presume it is in view of the re.
organization of the State. Since the commence

been within the Federal line-; and has often been
