every especl, therefore, in which I can

The plan of removing the Aboriginal
People who yet remain within the settled
portions of the United States, to the country
west of the Miaaiaaippi river, approaches to

most mature considerdtion of the condition of
thia race, and ouvht to be persisted in till1
the object is accomplished, and prosecuted
with as much vigor as a just regard to their
circumstances will permit, and as fast as
their eonet can be obtained.
All proceeding experiments for the im
provement of the Indiana have failed. It
Nana now to be an established fact, that
they cannot live in contact with a civilized
community and prosper. Ages of fruitless
endeavours have, at length, brought us to a
knowledge of this principle of intercommu
cntiVj with them. The past we cannot re
call, but the future we can provide for. In
dependently of the treaty stipulations into
which we have entered with the various
tribesor the unsufructory rights they have
ceded to us, no one can doubt the moral du
ty of the Government of the U. States to
protect, and if possible, to preseve perpetu
ate, the scattered remnants of this race,
which are left within our borders. In the
discbarge of this duty, an extensive region
in the West has been assigned for their
permamcnt residence. It has. been divided
into districts and allotted amonjrst them.

F exceeding fifteen hundred persons,
the Cherokees, all the tribes on the
east side of the Mississippi, and extending
from Luko Michigan to Florida, have enter

The plan for the gfffval and re-establishment
is founded upon the knowledge we
have gained of thegr character and habits,

to the progress f events. These, I indulge
the hope, will secure their prosperity and
improvement, and a large portion of tho
in ral debt we owe them will then be paid.
The report from the Secretary af the
Navy, showing the condition of that branch
of the public service, is recommended to
your specia1 attention. It appears from it,
ilmlour naval force at present in commis
sion, with all th activity which can be giv
en to it, is inadequate to the protection of
lour rapidly increasing commerce.
1 bis consideration, and the more general
one which regards this artn-of national de
fence as to our best security against foreign
aggressions, strongly urge the continuance
of the measures which promote its gradual
enlargement, and a speedy increase of the
force which has been heretofore employed
abroad & at home. You will perceive from
the estimates which appear in the report of
the Secretary of the Navy, that the expen
ditures necessary to tins increase of its force

as to feel any other sentiment than 4hat of
indignant regret at, conduct so destructive
of the harmony and peace of the country,
and so repugnant to the principles of our
uilional compact and to the dictates of hu
manity and religiop. Our happiness and
prosperity essentially depend upon eace
within our borders; and peace depends upnn
the mainteuau ::, in good faith, of those
I compromises of the Constitution upon which
ine union is founded. .
It is fortunate for the country, that the
good sense, the generous feeling, and the
Uoep-rooted attachment of theYeopIn of we
non-slavehol.ling Suites to the Luion, and
to their fellow-citizens of the some blood in
the South, have given so strong and impres
sive a tone to the sentiments entertained
against the proceedings of the misguided
persons who have euguged in these uncon
stitutional nnd wicked attempts, " id espe
cially against the emmissaries from tVeign
parts, who have dased to interfere in this

of the United States, and

other indispensable artrcles,

ho period of a year after

time, from the nature of the country, and
of the products raised by them, they can
subsist themselves by agricultural labor, if
they chooose to resort to that mode of life.
If they do not, they ore upon the skirts of
the great prairies, whore countless herds of
buffalo roam, and short time suffices to
adapt their own habits to tho changes which
a change of the animals destined for their
food may require. Ample ar.-increments
have also bocti made for the support of
schools. In some instances, couneil-lio;iscsj
and churches arc to tic erected, dwelling
constructed for the chiefs, nnd mills for com
mon uso. Funds have been set apart for
the maintenance of the poor. The most
necessary mechanical arts have been iu-
troditeerfj hmrWacksmiihs, gunsmiths, wheel
wrights, millwrights, etc., are supported
among them. Steel and iron, and some
times salt' arc purchased for them, and
ploughs and other farming utensils, domestic
animals, looms, spinning wheels,cards, &c,
are presented to them.
And besides these benefi:i,i' arrange
ments, annuities arc in all cases made,

Nest to the capacity to put afloat and arm
the required number of ships, is the posses
sion ot the means torn in them efficiently ;.
and nothing seems better calculated to aid
this object, than the measure proposed. As
an auxiliary to the advantages derived from
our extensive commercial marine, ft would
furnish us with a resource ample enough for
all the exigencies which can be anticipated.
Considering tho state ofour resources, U can
not be doubted that whatever provision the
liberality nnd wisdom of Congress may now
adopt, with a view to the perfect organiza
tion of this branch ofour service, will meet
the approbation of all classes our citizens.
By the Report of the Postmaster General
it appears that the revenue of that Depart
ment, during the year ending on the 30th
day of June last, exceeded its accruing re
sponsibilities, $230,200, and that the? sur
plus of the present fiscal year is estimated
at $176,227 It further appears that the
debt of the department on the first day of J u-
ly last, including the amount due Jpcoptrac-
tors tor the quarter then lust expired: was
about $1,01! 1,381, exceeding the available
means about $23,700, nnd thon the Tjjrst
instant about $537,077 ii& (jfbt had
been paid-; $109,01,1 out of postages accru

Deparlmcnthad $73000 in Bank on the 1st

that the Department is entirely free from
embarrassment, and that by collection of
outstanding balances, and using the current
surplus, the remaining portion of the Bank

the department will be able to sustain with
perfect convenience, an annual charge of"
$300,000 for the suj port of new routes, to
commence as soon as they can be establish
ed and put in operation.
The measures adopted by the Postmaster
General, to bring tho means of the Depart
ment into action, and to effect a speedy ex.
tingujshmcnt of its debt, as well as to pro
duce an fficient administration of its aflfakt,
will be found detailed at length in his able

prompt to exercise their authority in sup

I consider lifihsplnre and conditiona
interdiction of thMWRcle, amoijg these peo
ple, as the first and great step in their me
wjioartion. Half-way measures will answer
no purpose. These cannot successfully
contend against the cupidity of the seller

2 And the destructive effects of the traffic are
marked in every page of 'the history ofour
Indian intercourse.
I Some general legislation seems necessa
ry for the regulations which will exist in
this new state of things between the Gov
ernmetit and people of the United States
and these transplanted .Indian tribes; agd
for the establishment among the loiter, and
with their own consent, of some principles
of intercommunication, which their juxtapo
sition will call for: that moral may be sub
stituted for physical force, the authority of
a few and simple laws for the tomahawk,
and that an end may put to those bloody
wars, whmui nmserution seems to have
made part of their social system.
Ater tho further details of this arrange
ment are completed with a very general
fof our settlements.
Particular attention as solicited to that
rjrtion f fb report of the Posjmaster Geu
WM which relates tohe carriage of the
Miils of the United 9c.s upon railroads
constructed by private corporations, under
the authority oi ijio several States. The
reliance which eQeralGovernmeiit can
place on those roads asWnean-i of carrying
on its operations and the principles on which
the use of them is te be. obtained annnot be
too soon considered and settled.
Already does the spirit of monopoly begin
to exhibit its natural propensities, in the at
tempts to exact from the public, for services
which it supposes cannot be obtained on
other terms, the most extravagant compen
sation. If these claims be persisted in, the
question may arise, whether a combination
of citizens, acting under charters of incorpo
ration trom i. .ites,.caulw a direct refusal,
or the demand of an exorbitant price, exclude
the United states from the use oi tho estab
lished channels of communication between
the different sections of the country: and
whefher the Unid States cannot, without
transcending their constitutional powers,
secure to the Post Office Department the
use of those roads, by an act gf Congress,
which shall provide itself some equitable
mode lor yusting tne auaaunt oi compen
sation. To obviate, if possible, the necessi
ty of considering this question, it is suggest
ed whefher it be not expedient to fix, by law,
the amounts which shall be offered to rail
road companies for the conveyance of the
mails, graduated according to the average
weight, to be ascertained and declared by
the Post Master General. It is probiblc
that a liberal proposition f that sort would

IMPORTANT FROM FRANCE.
The last Natcbe Courier says, that it has pos
itive information, that Mr. Barton, our Minister
to France has forwarded home to our govern?
ment, despatches, wliich contain the informa
tion that the French government had perempto
rily refused to pay any part of the indemnity,
without a full and satisfactory apolofj from
Gen. Jack-on and that it was the undivided
opinion of a! that war was inevitable.

' ; PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE.
J We publish, this wee'e, the whole of this ira-
autboritv which is acknowledged to be su-iP:tHUt and interesting document. Its great
preme in will of the People constitutionally I '''"gthj must, necessarily, prevent us from giving
expressed.
My reflection nnd experience satisfy me,
Lthat the f.s liters of the Constitution, al
though they were noxious to mark this fea
ture of the government did not adopt all the
precuatioas tint were necessary to secure
its practical observance: and that we caonoa
be said to have carried into ciirnpleto effect
their intentions until the evih&which arise
from this organic, defect are remedied.
Considering the great extent of Confed
eracy, rapid increase, its pop ilation, and the
diversity of interests and pursuits, it cannot
he disgiiisedth.it the contingent' byraJbich

self into an fSlectosul College cannot become
one of ordinary occurrence without produc
ing incalculable mischief. What was in
tended as tho medicine of the Constitution
on extre;mjca8os,eunnot be frequently used
without changing its character ai sooner
or later producing incurable disorder.
lation to the Post Office epartment,
must also invite your attention to the painful
excitement produced in the South, by at
tempts to circulate through the mails, in
flammatory appeals addressed to the pas
sions of the Slaves, in prints and in various
sorts ot publications, calculated to stimu
late them to insurrection, and to produce
an tne norrors ot a servile war
There is doubtless on respectable nnrtinn
ofour country fUen whotan be so fur misled
Every election by the llouso of Reprrvj
scntativcs is calculated to lessen the force of
that security which is deVived from the
distinct and separato characterof th Legis
lative nnd Executive functions, while it
exposes each to temptations adverse to their
elhciency as organs orthc Constitution and
laws, its Jannoncy will be to unite both in
resisting tho will of the People, and thus
give a' direction to the government anti-re-
publican nnd dangerous. All history tells
us tints free people should be" watchful of
delegated power, nnd should never acqui
esce in a practice which will diminish their
control over it.
Thia obligation, so universal in its appli
cation to all the principles ot a Republic,
is peculiarly so in ours, where the fbrmnhon
our usual quantity of original matter. It is un
usually well written, aud we like the toue nod
spirit with which the leading topics are discussed.
That part of the messaire devoted to our rela-
Uoas with France, sums up, with ability, the
mstury of our diplomatic intercourse with that
froverniuent on the subject of our claims upon it;
denies, with a becoming spirit, the- right of any
govornmeTfPMWerc with the constitutional
action of anvTJWrTches of our own : contends
that the voluntary explanation to the French
Minister should have beeu taken as ample repa
ration for any fancied wound to the French
pride and French dignity ; and, that, satisfied or
not, they will get no other apology.

Wrid if oilr own construction is the true one, and

The principle feature in the message to which
we object, is tha unmeasured and uncalled-for
abuse which is heaped upon the already pros-
uaiebaiiKol tne umteo Mates. Alter an in
stitution has been crushed beneath the w eight
of Executive influence; after its business has
been concluded or is being rapidly brought to a
close, we do deem it indelicate and improper for
t he Chief Magistrate of the nation to' appear,
opeuly and in the face of the world, struggling to
disturb the popular repose and rekindle the tire
of partisan frenzy by reiterating the slang which
Lpas oeased to be applicable, and the dialect of
demagogue sanen ma terms are unmeaning. Jt
is truly unfortunate that such an able and elnb
ojraMdorainJaat should be ae disfigured. But the
motive is obvious it ii a scheme to keep up po
litirwl excitement and , arty organization, that
c supporters of Gen. Jackson mav be trans-
rrdd as stock at par t Mr. Van fiuren nnd the
appan faction. It nil will ifbt do,'liowever ;
high-imiiMled nod patriotic citizens of the
flth and West will not risk their property and
heir liberties to advance the interests of the
"New York pretender.
The render will ulse jierceive, (nrtwithsan'
