' dfed and , twelve acres of public
,,land. were disposed of, one million
vight hundred and ninety-two thou-
ftand. five hundred and sixteen acres
1 'of which were entered under the
1 -'homestead act. The policy origin
al ally adopted relative to the public
: Ja'nda has undergone essential mod--ifications.
Immediat'o revenue,
.and'not their rapid settlement, was
. the cardinal feature of our land
-Byatem." 'Long; experience and ear
'riest 'discussion have resulted in
- the conviction that the early dc--velopirient
of our agricultural re
sources, and the diflusion of an en
ergetic population over bur vast
territory, are objects of far greater
importance to the National growth
. and prosperity than the proceeds
jtf the' Sale of the land to the high
' jest'.'Lidder in open market. The
-pre-emption laws confer upon the
"jfjiipneer who complies with the
. terms they impose the privilege ot
purchasing a limited portion of
;.unoflered lands" at the minimum
; price,- The homestead enactments
relieve the settler, ironr the pur
chase of money, and 6ecure him a
f permanent home, upon the condi
tion of residence for a term of years.
This liberal policy invites emigra
tion from the old, and from the
-wore crowded portions of the new
.world. Its propitious results are
. undoubted, .Jtnd will be more sig
nally manifested when time shall
liave given to it a wider develop
ment, 'r' Congress has made liberal grants
of public lands to corporations,, in
"aid of the construction of railroads
and other internal improvements.
Should this policy hereatter pre
vail, more stringent provisions will
be required to' secure a faithful ap
plication of the fund. The title to
'.the lands should not pass, by pat--ent
or otherwise, but remain in the
Government "and subject to its con
tfoI until some portion of the road
has been actually, built . Portions
of, them might theDj-from time to
'time, be conveyed to the corpora

may deem proper to dispose, should

As a subject upon which depends
an immense' amosnt of the product
ion and commerce. of .the country,
I recommend to Congress such leg-;
islation as rriaV benec'esVAry forthe
preservation of the levees' . of the
Mississippi River.' ; It if a matter
of National importance .that early
steps should be taken not only to
add to tne efficiency or these bar
riers agnint destructive inundations
but for the removal of all obstruc
tions to the free and safe haviga-
tion'of that great channel of trade'

. The District of .Columbia, under
existing laws, is not entitled to that
representation ', irt the National
Councils which, from our earliest
history, has been uniformly accord
ed to' each Territory . established
from time to time within limits. It
maintains pcculiarrelatipns to Con
gress, to whom the Constitution
has granted the power of exercising
exclusive legislation over the 6eat
of Government. Our fellow citizens
residing in the District, whose in
terests are thus confided to the spe
cial guardianship ot. Congress, ex
ceed in number the population of
seveial of our Territories, and rio
just reason is perceived why a del-
agate of their choice should not be
admitted to a seat in the House of
Representative. No mode seems
so appropriate and effectual of enab
ling them to make known , their
peculiar condition and wants, and
of securing the . local legistation
adapted to them. I therfore recom
mand the passage of a law author-!
izing the electors of the District of
Columbia to choose a delegate, to
be allowed the same rights and
privileges as a delegate represen
ting a Territory. The increasing
enterprise and rapid progress of
improvement in the District ..are
highly gratifying, and I trust that
efforts of the municipal authorities
to promote the prosperity of the
NationalJMetropoli8 will receive the
efficient and generous co-operation
of Cougress.
The report oi the Commissioner
of Agriculture reviews the opera

dustry. It is a subject of xongratulation
that noforeigncombihation8 against
our domestis peace and fialety, or

the United States had not received anv no

dissent to the Emperor of f ranee. '
I cannot forego the hope that France

On. tlie (ith ot June last, in violation of

and enterprise against tliu British North
Aaierlcau ColOuies was projected and at
tempted tobe carrled on within the torrl
tory and jurisdiction of the United States,
in obedience to the obligation lmosed up
pu the. Executive by tlie Constitution, to

all citizens are warned, by proclamation,
against taklujr part !n or aiding such Un
