Tnis has, however, in so many cases, proved ineffectual, and espe cially so in certain recent instances of needy immigrants reaching our terri tory throu.'h Carnal i. that a revision of our legislation upon thi subjec t may be deemed ifdvisaiile. ci, avion r.ri,wi:i: i i:i:. i v.

I s members have shown their public spirit by accepting their trust without phdge of compensation, but I trust that congress will see iu the national and international bear ings of tho matter a suflicient motive of providing at least lor reimburse ment of such expenses as they may necessarily incur. The COltONATWN OK Till-: t'ZAIt, at Moscow, afforded to this govern ment an occasion for testifying its continued lrieudship bv sending a special envoy and a representative of too navy to attend the ceremony. While thera have arisen during tne year no grave question a fleeting the status iu tho liiissian empire of Amer ican citizens, or other faith than that held by tho national church, this gov ernment remains lirm in its convictions that tho rights of Us citizens abroad should be in no way ntl'cted bv their religious belief. oi;n KIXATIoNS WITH (l ISA. It is understood that measures for tho removal of thu restrictions which now burden our trade with Cuba and I'orto Ilico are under consideration by the Spanish government. The proxim ity of Cuba, and the peculiar method of administration which there prevail, ne cessitateconstantdiscussion and appeal on our part .from the proceedings ot tho insular authorities. 1 regret to say that the just protests of this govern ment have not, as vet, produced satis- factory results. Ihe Commissioner r.. ...... ..I... '11... . : appointed to decide certain claims of our citizens against tho Spanish gov ernment, of a satisfactory rule as to the validity and force of naturalization in t he United States, has linally adjourned. Some of its awards, though made more than two years ago, havo not yet been paid. Tho specie payment is expected. Claims to a largo amount, which were held by the late commission to be with out their jurisdiction, havo been diplo matically presented to the Spanish government, as tho action of the Colo nial authorities, which has given rise to those claims, was admitted as illegal, and full reparation for the injuries sus tained by our citizens should be no longer delayed. AltlUTKATlOX. The Manilla court has found that the proceedings of which this government has complained were unauthorized, and it is Loped that the government of Spain will not withhold tho speedy reparation which its sense of injustice should impel it to offer for the unusual severity and unjust action of its subor dinate colonial ofheers in the case of this vessel. yet reached a settlement. The Helvetian Confederation has prepared the inauguration of a class of International treaties for the deferment to arbitration of grave questions bo t ween nations. The government lias assented to the proposed negotiation of such a treaty with Switzerland, EIGHTS OF AMERICANS AI1KOAD. Under the treaty of Perlin. liberty of conscience and civil rights are iissurei to all strangers in Bulgaria. As tho United States have no distinct conven tional relations with that country, and are not a party to the treaty, they should, in iuv opinion, maintain a diplo matic representation at Sofia for the improvement of intercourse and the proper protection of the many Ameri can citizens who resort to that country as missionaries and teachers. I sug gest that I be given authority to estab lish an agency and Consulate (ieneral at the Jiuluaiiaii capital. COMMKPCK WITH TL'KKKV. The I'nited States are now partici pating iu a revision of the tariffs 3f the Ottoman Km pi re. They have assented to the application of a license tax of foreigners doing business iu Turkey, but have opposed the oppressive stor age tax upon petroleum entering the ports of that country. Kovny, The government of the Khedive has proposed that the authority of the mix ed judicial tribunals in Egypt be ex tended so as to cover citizens of the United Slates accused of crime, who are now tried before Consular courts. This government is not indisposed to accept, the change, but believes that its terms should be submitted for criticism to a commission appointed to revise the whole subject.

Tho treaty of commerce and nagivation of lsis lias been terminated by the Mexican government and by the absence of conventional engagements, the rights of our citizens in Mexico now depend upon the domestic statutes of tho republic. There have been in stances of harsh enforcement of the laws against our vessels and citizens in Mexico, and of denial of diplomatic re sort for thier protection. I ho initial sten toward a better understanding has been taken iu the negotiations by the commission authorized by Congress ol a treaty, which is still before the Sen ate, awaiting its approval. Hie i rovisions for the reciprocal crossing of the troops iu pursuit of hos tile Indians have been prolonged 101 another vear.

CKNTItAb AMKIMCA. Our geographical proximity to Cen tral America auel our political and commercial relations with the States of that country justify, in uiy judg ment, such a material increase o. our Consular corps as will place at each capital a Consul General. SOUTH AMERICA. The contest between liolivia and Chili aid I'eiuhas passed iroin the stage of strategctic hostilities ta that of negotiation, in wlucii the Consuls of the government ha been exercised. Tho demaial of Chili for absolute cession of territory have been main tain! d and accepttd by tho party of General Igiesia, to the extent of con cluding a treaty of peace with Chili in general conformity with the terms of the protocol signed iu my last between the Chilian com in u;d t, and Gen. Igle sias.Asaresti t of the conclusion of this treaty, Gen. lglesia. has b -en form ally rccogn znl by Chili as President of Peru, and i:is government installed at Lima, wnich has been evacuated by tho Chilians. A call has been issued by Gen. iglesia. for a representative assembly to be eiectul on tho l!Jth of January, and to meet in I,ima on the 1st of March next. Meanwhile, the provisional government of (Jen. I.gle sias has applied for recognition to the principal powers of America and Europe. When the will of the Pel u vian peoplo shall be manifested, 1 shall not hesitate to recogniza tho gov ernment approved by them. Diplomatic and naval representa tives of this government attended at Caraccas the centennial celebration. ef the birth of the illustrious llolivar. At tho same time the inauguration of tho statue of Washington in the Venezuelan capital testified to the veneration in which his memory is held there. Congress, at its last session, author iz d the Executive to propose to the Venezuelan government a reopening of the awards of theniixedcommission of Caraccas. Tho d partura from this country of tho Venezuelan Min ister has d. dayed tho opening of negotiations for revising tlie commis sion. This govermn-Mit hold that until the re-estab ishment of a treaty on this Mitject tne yemzueian goveiiini nt must continue to make the payments provided for in the con vention of 1SW. There is ground for believing that the disputo growing out of tho unpaid obligations due from Venezuela to Prance will bo satisfactorily ad justed. The French cabinet lias pro posed a basis of settlement which meets my approval; but as it involves a recasting of the annual quotas of tho foreign d'bt, it has been deemed advisable to submit the proposal to the judgment of the cabinets of Perl'" The case of the Masonic has not en. lii Hague.

Tho question or lerrnin itiir.f or modifying the existing rcciproo.ty treaty with Hawaii is mnv beforo Congress. I am convuicid that the charges of abuse ad iruidi ui.dr that treatv lu.VU been ex.igger ued, and 1 rem w the suggestion o- iast vear's message tint the treaty be mo dilhd wherever m provisions have provtd onerous to legitimat- trad; between tho two countries. I am not disp isidto favor the entire cessation of treaty relations wnich havrf foster d goul will between the two countries and contributed toward the equality of Hawaii iu the tauiily oi nations. EASTKKN NATIONS. In pursuance ol the policy d?clar d by this government of extending our intercourse with the Eastern nations, legations have, during the past year, been established in 1'ersi i, S am and Corea. It is probable that permanent missions of those countries w II, ere long, bo maintain 'd in tho Uuiud States. A special emb assy from Siani is now on its way hither, 'lr -aty re lations with Corea were pertected iy tho exchange at Seoul, on the lath of May last, of the ratifications of the lately-concluled convention, and en voys from the King of Talchos.in havo visited this country and receive 1 a cordial weleom Corea, as vet unacquainted with the methods of Western civilization, now invites the attention of those interest ed in foreign trad, as it needs the im plements and pied lets which the United States are i t ad to supply. We se.-k no monopoly of its commerce and no advantages over other nations; but, as the Chinese, in reaching for a High er civilization, nava contueu in tins republic, we cannot regard with in difference any encroachment ou their rights, )yin CHINKSK INDEMNITY, bv the payni"iit ot a money j,i, rri'iitv. has settli d certain of the long-pending claim of our citizens, and 1 nave strong hopes tnat tne re , rnainder will soon "be adjusted. Questions have arisen touching the riguts of American and other loreign manufacturers in China under the provision of treaties which permit aliens to t'xeerjiso lhe:r industries in that country. Oa this specilic pi nt our own lira y is silent; but, under tha operation of the most lf.vored nations clause, we have like privileges with t hose of o'lier powers. While it is the duty o:' the government to see that our citizens have the full enjoyment of very ben -lit secured by treaty, I doubt the exi. d.ency of leadiiij in a lii'ivenr'ii . a constrain China to admit an interpretation wnich we have only our ind iect treat v right to exact. The transference to Ciiina of Ameri can capital lor employment there of Chinese labor, wou.d in effect inaugu rate a competition for the control of markets now supplied by our hom9 in dustries. CHIN ESE I MMItl K ATION. 'Tiicre is good reason to bjlieva that the law restricting tho immigration of Chinese has been violated, intentional ly or otherwise, by the ollicialsoi Cnina upon whom is devolved the duty of certifying that the immigrants belong to the excepted classes. Measures havo been taken to ascertain the facts incident to this supposed infraction, and it is bedeved that the Government of China will co-operate with tho Uni ted Slates iu securing the faithful ol servance or the law. Tne s mie consid erations which prompted Congress at its last session to return to Japan the S moneski indemnity, seem to" me to require at its hands like action iu re spect to the Canton indemnity fund, now amounting to t.'iJO.OuO. JAPAN. The question of the general revision of the foreign treaties of Japan has been considered in an international conference held at Tokio. but without dafinate result as yet. This govern ment is disposed to conceit i tlie re' quests ol Japan to determine its own tariff elutie and provide such proper judicial tribunals as may commend themselves to the Western powers for the trial of causes to which foreigners are parties, and to assimilate the term and duration of its treaties to those of other civilizad states, through our ministers at London and at Monrovia. I.UiElilA. This government has endeavored to aid Liberia in its differences with Groat Pritain touching the northwest ern boundaries of that republic. There is a prospect of adjustment of the dis pute bv the adoption of tha M innah river as the line. This arrangement is a compromise of tho conllictin ' tern torial claims, and takes from Liberia no territory over which it ha.s maintain ed eftective jurisdiction. INTEKIon AKIilCA. Tha rich populous valley of the Con go is being i p Mied to conimi ree by a society called the luternauoinl Afri can Association, of which the King of the llalgians is Presid nt and a citizen of the United States the chief execu tive officer. Large tract of territory have been ceded to the association by native chiets. Koads havj been opened and steam boats placed on the river, and the nucles of states established at twenty two station under one flag, which offers freidom to commerce and pro hibits the slavj trade. Th objects of the society ars p ulanthroic. It does not aim at permanent political con trol, but seeks the n .ulrality ot tho valleys. The United States cannot be indif ferent to this work, nor to tho interests of their citizens involved in ir. It may become adrisible for u to o-operate with other commercial powers in preunoting tho rights of trade and res idence in the Congo valley, free from the interference of political control of any ono nation. SOCIAL, AND i-ClENITKIC. In view of tho frequency of invita tions of foreign gewernnients to par ticipate in social and scientific con gresses for tho discussion of important matters of general com em, 1 repeat the suggestion of my last msssage, that provision be made for the excer c.so of discretionary power by the Executive in appointing delegates to such conventions. Specialists are ready to servo the National interests in Mich capacity without personal profit or other compensation than the defrayment of expenses actually in curred and this comparatively small annual appropriation would suffice to meet.

There are cogent reasons, however, why the national indebtedness should not bo thus Ripidly extinguished.

While I have no dount that still further reductions uiav bo wiseiy made, I do not advise the adoption at this session of any measure for a lar-re diminu tion of the national revenues. Tne results of the legislation of the last session of con gress have not as yet heeome siil'iicientiy apparent to justify any radical revision or sweepius; modifications of the existing law.

Immediately associated with the finan cial subject, just discussed is tlie important question, Wnat legislation is needed re gardinsr the national currency' The atr Hivgate of bonds how on deposit in tho treasury to support tho national bank cir culation is about $;no, 010,000. Nearly 5:200. 0.0, ou J of this amount consists of 3 per cents., which, as before stated, are paya ble at the pleasure of the government, and are likely to ho called In within less than four years, unless, meantime, the surplus revenues shall be diminished. The prooable effect of such an extensive retire ment of the securities, which aro tho basis of the national bank circulation, would be a contraction of the volume of the currency as to produce crave commercial embarrass ment. How can the danger bo obviated'.' The most effectual plan, and ono whose adoption at the earliest practical opportu nity I shall heartily approve, has already been indicated. If the revenues of tho next four years shall be kept substantially commensurate with the expenses, the vol ume of circulation will not be likely to suf fer any material disturbance. Hut if, on the other hand, there shall be groat delay in reducing taxation, it will become neces sary either to substitute some other lorm of currency in place of the national hank notes or to make important changes iu the laws hy which their circulation is controll ed. In my judgment tho hitler course is far preferable. I commend to your attention thu very in teresting nnd thoughtful suggestion on this subject which appears in tlio secretary's report. The objections which lie urges ngainst the acceptance of any other secu rities than the obligations of the govern ment itself as a foundation for national hank circulation seems to me insuperable. For averting the threatened contraction two courses have been suggested, either of which is probably feasible. Ono is the issuance of new bonds having many years to run, bearing a low rate of Interest, ami exchangeable upon the specified terms of those now outstanding. The other course, which commends itself to my judgment as tlie better, Is the enactment of a law repealing the tax on circulation, and per mitting ti' hanks to issue notes for an amount equal to ;) per cent, of the m irket value, instead of, as now, the face value of the deposited bonds. 1 agree with the secretary hi ihe belief that the adoption of this plan will afford tlie necessary re lief.
