Report of the Secretary of the Interior. 'We have read with great satisfac. tion this very able and interesting document, which w 1 U appear, at length, in our columns at an . early day. We can find room this morn ing only for a hasty, analysis of its contents, presenting such portions as are likely to be of most general inter est. - .. . ,. -.'.., The report commences with a sum mary of the varied and important du ties devolved, on the Department; alludes to the vagueness' of the act of tsongress which, created it, and recommends fC iher leUiion to de fine with precision its duties and powers, and also to remedy the in congruity in the Jaw in reference to its designation. '. -' It recommends the creation of the office of Solicitor of the Department to decide questions of law upon ap peals; his action to be subject, how ever, in all cases, to the revision of the Secretary. A summary of the estimates for each branch of the public service within the juiisdiction of the De partment is given in tabular form. and, compared with the estimate for the present fiscal year for similar services, by which it appears that the estimate for the next fiscal year1 exceeds that Jor the present SI.728.- 670 93. The cause of this excess the j Secretary fully explains,: examining tne estimates item oy item. " The en deavor has been to cover the whole amount of the probable expenditures for the fiscal year, so that there may oe no necessity in lulure lor estimat ing for deficiencies, unless upon some untorseen contingency, A general review is then civen of the operations ot the several bu reaus. I his portion of the report consists principally of statistics which cannot well be condensed. We se lect, however, some of the most im portant items: The whole number of persons now on the pension rolls of . the United States is 19,753. Out of these many are probably dead. The whole number who have drawn pensions during the first and second quarters ol the calendar year is 13.079. The cumber of deaths reported within the liutyear'is 846. The beneficiaries under the laws designed to provide- for . the soldiers of the Revolution and their widows, are rapidly passing away. - But the number of pensioners under other acts has been considerably augment ed ia consequence of the . war with Mexico. .The whole amount ex pended for pensions during the past year is estimated at $I,40U,UU0, The whole number of land war rants issued for services in the Revo lutionary war is 12,5SS; in the war of 1812. 28,978; number of claims for land warrants,- and script in lieu thereof, for services in the Mexican war, 84.705. The number of claims already presented under the Bounty Land Law of September last, up to the 5th ol November, was 9,418, and the number is increasing rapidly.. It is estimated that the whole number of claimants will be about 250,000. will thus be seen that this city is by far the most important Bounty Land Law that has ever been pass ed. -All necessary arrangements have been made to ensure its prompt and efficient execution., -Forma and instructions have been prepared, and assurance given, that every proper facility will be afforded for the estab lishment ot just demands under the law.. Plates have been ordered to be engraved for pi in ting the war rants, and every precaution has been adopted to guard against fraud and forgery. These plates will soon be Completed, and there need then be no delay in commencing the issue ol the warrants. The warrants having been decided to be not assignable, cannot be made available to the hold ers until they have been located and patented. As this process will re quire considerable time, it is proper, in order to ensure the enjoyment or the bounty by those for whom it was intended, that no unnecessary delay should be encountered. To a void this evil the. Secretary recom mends that provision be made for the employment of two or more efficient clerks, and such -temporary assist ance as may be-, required, from lime to time, to investigate the claims of applicants. .

Jor .the the list fifty years, over and above all costs and expenses. Among the most prominent subjects claiming the attention of Congress, is the necessi ty of extending' our land systems over our possessions on the Pacific. The appointment of a commission is recommended to adjudicate conflict ing land claims in California. With regard to the mineral lands, the becretary recommends that they be divided into small tracts, and sold ia fee simple to the highest bidder, at public auction. The extent of the lots should depend on the apparent richness of the mines; but they should be small enough to afford persons in moderate circumstances an opportu nity of becoming bidders. Uur relations with the Indians will demand the prompt attention of Con gress, l he annexation ol I exas and the treaty with Mexico have added o tuucu about one hundred and twenty thou-7,ous s.,nH nn. m m.r In,t;fln ' nil,.

Agents have been appointed for the indian tribes of California and of Oregon; and two' special agent have been appointed to co-operate with the resident agent in 1 exas in conciliating the Indians of that State. Three commissioners have been ap pointed under the same act to acorn-j pany the Mexican lioundary Com mission, for the purpose of obtaining information in regard to the tribes on our southern frontier, and, if pos sible, to establish friendly 'rela lions with them. It is to be regretted that no authority was conferred by law for ' the establishment of resident agents in New Mexico. The Indians of that country are the most savage within our boundaries. It is essen tial foi the fulfilment of our tieaty stipulations, as well as for, the pro tection of cur own citizens, that a gents should be sent among them, who can exercise a restraining innu ence over them. The necessity for this measure has been painfully ill us trated by ' the outrages committed upon our citizens travelling to and from Santa Fer as an instance of which the attack upon Mr. White and his party is mentioned. The importance of a great nation al high way to the Pacific is consid ered in the report; and; the Secrets ry suggests the propriety of author izing an. immedate examination of the country and such surveys as may be necessary to determine the practi cability . and probable . cost of the work. . . . The establishment ol an Agricul tural Bureau is reeommended by the report.- 1 he purchase of a farm in the vicinity of the naliooal metropo lis, to be managed under the direc tion of the bureau, has been suggest ed as an auxiliary in illustrating the best modes of culture.- 7 he Secreta ry adds that, it this idea be favorably received, Mount V ernon might, with great propriety, become a model farm, to illustrate the progress of that pursuit to which the Father of bis country was so much devoted Measures have been taken for se curing the prompt execution of the act for taking the seventh census. he returns coming in daily, give as surance that the census will be com pleted within the time, limited by aw. The amount ot valuable sta tistical information will exceed any thing of the kind known , in our past '-.,-.- '.', The joint commission for the sar- vev of the Mexican boundary' have doubtless assembled at: El Paso, for the purpose of running' and marking the line thence westward to the riv Gila. The work will be pressed forward with the utmost despatch. ' The Secretary agreees with his predecessor in regard to the perisha ble naiure of the material of some of the public buildings. He recom mends an appropriation Tor paiating the Treasury building. - In regard to the Patent Office, he recommends that the entire exterior facing of the front be removed, and its place sup plied by a veneering of white marble the same quality as that used in the construction of the wings.

Republic. Republic. The Post Master General's Report. . The Post Master General, in his Annual Report, says tho number of mail routes within the United States, at the close ot the fiscal year ending on the 30th of June last, was 5,500; the aggregate length ol such routes was 178,672 miles; and the number of contractors employed thereon, 4,- 76U. The annual transportation of the mails on these routes . was 46.- 541,423 miles, at an annual cost of $2,724,426, making the a vet age cost about five cents and eight pad a half mills per mile.

There were, on the 30th of June last, five foreign mail routes, of the oggregat length ol 15,070 miles, and the annu al price of the transportation there on, payable by this department, was $264,5U6; being an increase of $9,. 714 on the cost of the ceceedlng year, There should be added to t!e cost of transportation, as above stated, the expense of mail messengers, and lo cal and route agents, (which expense is chargeable to the transportation fund,) and which Tor the last fiscal year, amounted to $107,042; being an increase of $15,529 on the ex penses of the mail messengers and local route agents for the preceeding year. The increase of our mail ser vice, for the last fiscal year, over the year preceeding, was about 94-10 per cent., and the increase ia the to tal cost was about 127-10 per cent. The extent and cost of such service, for the last year, its division among the states anq territories, and its comparison with that of the'preceed ing year, will more fully appear by examfaing the report of the Assist ant first Post Master General. The number of Post Masters appointed during the year ending June 30th, ISW, was 6.MS. Of thar number 2,600 were appointed to fill vacan cies occasioned by resignation?; 233 nil vacancies occasioned, by the decease of previous incumbents; 262 a change of the sites of the offices for which they were appointed; I, 444 on the removal of their rrede cessors; and 1,979, were appointed the establishment ol new offices. The whole number of post offices ia the United States, at the endot that year, was 18,417. There were 1, 979 post offices established, end 309 discontinued during the year. I he report recomnmeds the re duction of postage on pre-paid half ounce letters to a uniform rate of 3 cents, and when pot prepaid to five cents for any distance.. , It also re commends that newspapers be charg ed at the uniform rale, of one cent any distance. ; .

We are not sur prised, therefore, to hear rumors that a new Loan will be required by the Secretary of the Treasury io his forthcoming Report, though wehoDe Congress will contrive some means of obviating the necessity lor grant ing any such loan. Let us increase the Revenue, let us retrench Eipen- ditures, do something, any thing,1 rattier man borrow more money in a time of profound peace and ge'ueral prosperity, even to pay existing Debts. There must be some means practicable of avoiding further loans, and we are confident the Country will cheerfully look them in the lace. We greatly piefer an increase of Du ties, but we would vote for a direct Tax in preference to a Loan. . .
