We suppo3ed'there could be bo doabt'of ouTfrt."' ceiving the message last night, 6 - as td publish it this morning, as the telegraph announced that it was published in the Louisville papers of Thursday, and in the Cincinnati papers of Wednesday morn ing. The Louisville papers came safely to hand last night, but they contained 'no message, and we got no Cincinnati papers. "We must therefore wait a day longer. Our paper contains, less than Uiet usual, quantity of reading matter, on account of orj having held it open for the message. "We shall make -this up to morrow.

THE ADMINISTRATION AND THE NEW YORK ' CONTROVERSY. We copy below, from the Charleston Mercury, an article on the subject of tho unfortunate quarrel in New York, because it gives a true statement of facts which sheuld be well understood in the South. We commend the article to the candid consideration of our political friends in this State, who may not understand how utterly baseless is the cry of un faithfulness to . the South, .by the. administration which is now raised by men who have have here tofore shqwed no unwillingness to cordially unite with IViUiam JL Setoard. The Mercury says: The actual effect of the divisions in tho party in New York, is, in the first place, to put tho Seward party in thejtscepdency in that State; and. in the ; xcond, to secure the continuance of Mr. Seward . himself in the United States Senate. This is tho LTand result of the split in the democratic Dartv. "suid wh.'ch erer section of it b responsible Tor that fcpiit, lias to answer lor .tnese consequences. Wo jjmhII not attempt to sift tho arguments by which ach party throw tbo blame on the other. There was a great deal, specious enough, on b6th sides. 5ut wlmt is certain, is that Gen-JPierce'sAdminis-t rat ion sought earnestly and continually to keep the peace between these elements, and to. induce them to act together in the support, us they had in , the election, of the Democratic President. The common bond was the Baltimore Platform the - declaration of faith by the Convention which nomi nated Pierce and King. We cannot, for ourselves conceive what other , - standard the Administration could adopt, or on .- what other ground they could consider themselves sis fulfilling the pledge of their candidacy. In regard to the great sectional questiou of slavery, it was a pledge for peace; in regard to financial questions, becond only to that, jt wa3 a pledge for economy mul a induction of tho TarifE Which of these con ditions has the Administration broken? It is im portant to solve this question, because it is well Known . that the efforts of tho Administration to' keep the New York factions from separating, were the pretext for the open schism between them, and foremost among these efforts, confessedly, was that of preventing the slavery agitation from being re vived. It is not, therefore, in this quarter that the Administration has been untrue to the pledges pn which it was brought into office. It is only by gross perversion of the truth that there can befound iiny pretext Ibr assailing it m this respect, We 5:now President Pierce, flis political life has been iiiRuhrly direct, consistent .ud firm, in the sup port of the constitutional rights of U;e South. He .stands with tlic very select few in the North who Iruve never in word or deed been" faithless to ns. It was for this reason that be received the almost unanimous vote of this State, As we believe, he has done nothing to forfeit this conQdatue, Iu regard to the other great points of dornestic rwlicv. we find the Administration equally clear. 1'lie surplus in tho Treasury has to the utmost pos sible extent been aDsoruea m the redemption ot the iiublic debt: while the materials for the comprehen- tuirn adjustment of the tariff" to the future wants of itit Treasury are known to nave been assiduously collected The popularity of the Administration is now tho only assurance of the South that free trade Sirinciples will be advanced, and the burdens of commerce alleviated. In the great nutters of pub ' lie economy and equal taxation, the Administration have, therefore, thus far been true to their pledges. Ve believe they will continue true. They have liroken faith with no one. and tho accusation is a pretext lo cover faithless desertion by others. It was impossible to omit this general discussion tn noticing the character of the New York scljism. The Administration is mixed up with.the whole quarrel. 1-rom the very commencement the so- called "Hards" indirectly attacked it, and at every stage ol the contest their position became more and more distinctly ono of hostility. And this not merely in the consequences, but also in the feelina The New York Express (whig) in summing up the results of tho election, put the following significant juumauon in iiaucs: 'Whatever be the results in detail, the Hunkers uliow their teeth to the Jbederal Administration. with such a power to bite, that if Pierce holds on to Marcy Si Co., tho Administration will soon be without tho least power in this great State." Their organization U here declared to have for its purpose, either war upon tho President, or the die lation of his Cabinet We have long seen this. We have felt it our plain duty not only to giveth,e move ment no help, but to oppose it. 'Ine Jruits it has borne already, are specimens of what might be ex ftectod from its full triumph. It lias secured the continuance of Win. II. Seward in the United States Senaje. It has put New York in a position of di roct hostility to President Pierce's Administration, and has thus thrown itself in the way of all the rc- 2'orms to be looked for from that Administration. J t is in vain to say the "Hawls" have not done tliis. The whole course of the contest shows that ihfV were the disorganize!-?, and that the distrac- jioili of the -party was a thiDg on which they were f Irterniiued. They set up a standard which render eddiviii6n inevitable a standard founded pn the tiuclmnceable past Tho bad faith of this proceed ing is hown from the fact, tliat by extending their tot a llftlo further backiu time, their own leaders were found no freer from blame than those they jH.tu.-ed. It was still more strikingly shown by the fact, that they did not even denounce the original Barnburners so bitterly as they did thoso of their own party who adhered to the reconciliation be twecu the two factions. Mr. Mahcv has been the target of their iiicessant practice. Yet in regard to the slaveiy question, it would bo hard to find a man more unassailable. The most ingenious malice has been uuablo, during all this bitter controversy, to lasieitupoauimau vP'' ""'--"'-' ""I"" the conhdeuee ot Uiooouin. xi aicre was, men, an v heart in their professed devotion to the South, why have they assailed him, and in. such a way as to make it apparent that he was the first and, main object of their hostility? But wo have said enough lor tl c present, KENTUCKY COAL.

The road from Henderson, Ky to tho Tennessee line, is under contract and much of it graded. Ample funds are provided for its comple tion by October, 1855. The Tennessee portion of the road, (about 40 miles,) has been put under contract, to be completed by the first of January, 1856. A portion of the funds to build the Tennessee part of . , . .
