view of the importance of this cruestion, I
earnestly urge upon Congreaa early action

My opinion is, that by joint resolution of
the two Houses of Congress, the executive be
authorized to appoint a commissioner to ne
gotiate for a treaty with the authorities of
San Domingo for tbe acquisition of that
island, and that an appropriation be made to
ilefrav the expenses) of such commission.
The question may then be determined by the
attionof.be two Hciuw of (greiuiwn a
resolution of annexation, as in case of the ac
quisition of Texas. So convinced am I of all
the advantages to flow from the acquisition
of San Domingo, and of the great disad
vantages, 1 mignt almost say eauanuuen, to
rt.iw lmm the non-acuuisition. that I believe
the subject has only to be investigated to be

Is even proposed in that country to extend
the limits within which tbe privilege ad

expediency of looking into and giving your
serious consideration as to the proper means

It is the obvious interest wpecially of
neighboring nations to guard against injury
to those who may have
within on their borders and who may have
refuge abroad for this purpose. Extradition
treaties have been concluded with several of
the Central American Republics and others
are in progress. The sense of Congress is
desired as early as may be convenient upon
the proceedings of the'Commission on claims
against Venezuela, as communicated in the
mc-sage of March 4th, 1869, March 1st
1870, March 3lst, 1870. It has not been
deemed advisable to distribute any of the
money which lias been received from that
Government until Congress shall have acted

of French and Russian resident at Tien
Tieii, under circumstances of great harhar
itv, were suppMnl by some to have been
premeditated and to indicate some pur--e
among the ltopulace to exterminate
foreigners! in the Chinese Empire. Theevi
lencc fails to establish such a sup-sition,
but shows a complicity by the Chinese au
thorities and the mob. The government at
l'ekin, however, seems to have been Uisjioseil
to fulfill iu treaty obligations so far as it was
able to do so. Unfortunately the news of
the war Itetween the (ierman States ami
France reached China rswn after the massa
cre. It would appear that the Ipu- mind
became (sissessed with tbe idea that this con
test, extending to Chinese waters, would neu
tralize the Christian influence and power,
and I hal the time was coming when this
Ml-rn-titiou mass might eiisel all foreigners
and restore Mandarin influence. Antici
inting tremble from thi cause, I invited
France and North Cicrmany to make an au

In April last, while engaged in locating a
inilitarr roervation near 1'embina, a con-"
of engineers di-covered that the commonly

State and the British Tosse-won at that
place is about 5,700 feet south of the true
position, and that the line when run on
what i now supposed lo be the true position
of the inrallel. would leave the fortoMIud
son's Bav Companr, at Pembina, within the
tcrritory'of the United States. This infor
mation "iteing communicated to the British
Government, I was requested to consent,
ami I did consent that British occupation of
the Fort of the Hudson Bay
Pomieinv should continue for
thcpreeiiL I deem it important, bowevar,
tliat tht .art of the boundary should, be
.lisfiniiclv hxed bra ioint commision of the
governments, anil I submit herewith esti
mate of the expenses of such a mission on
the part of the United States, and recom
mend an appropriation for that purpose.
The land boundary is already fixed and
marked from the summit of the Kocky
Mountain to the Georgian Bav. It should
now Is; in like manner marked from the
Lake of the Wood to tlie summit of the
llocky Mountains.
I regret to say that no conclusion lias been
reached for
growing out of the course adopted by tliat
government during the relstUuin. The Cslt
inrt of London, so far as it view has been
expressed, doe not appear to be willing to
concede tliat Her Magisty'a Government was
piiltv of negligence, or did, or permitted,
any act during the war, by which the United
Stales lias just cause of complaint, but her
firm and unalterable conviction are directly
the reverse; and, therefore, recommend to
Congress to authorize the appointment of a
Commission to take proof of the amount and
il... ownershin of their claims, on
notice to the rejiresenuuve 01 iier
Majesty at Washington, and that au
thority be given for the commecement of
these claim by the United States, so tlut the
government shall have the ownership of the
private claim as well a the responsible con
trol of all the claims against Great Britain.
It cannot be iiecessary to add that whenever
Her Majesty's Government shall entertain a
desire for a full and friendly adjustment of
these claHfla, the United States will enter
upi their consideration with an earnest de
sire for a conclusion (-omistent with the
honor and dignity of both nations.
towanl the fishermen of the United State
during lhe past year has not been marked by
a friendlv feeling. By tbe first article of ll.e
Convention of 1818, between Great Britain
ami the Unite,! States, it wa agreed that the
inhabitant of lhe United Stale should have
forever in eommon with British subjects
the right of taking fish in certain water, than
is defined in Ihe waters not included in, the
limits named in the Convention, within
three miles of port of the British coast, ami
it ha been Ihe custom for many yearstogive
in.ru.lim; fishermen of the United States a
reasonable warning of lhe violation of tlie
technical right of Great Britain. The Im
iierial Government i umlerstissl to have
dclecatcd the whole of a share of it jurisdic
tion or control of these inrshore fishing
ground to the Colonial authority known as
the Dominion of C-tsada and this serai-inde
pendent but iliespuntible agent has exercised
its delegated powers is an unfriendly way.
