The decision of the People ami the StntuF. on this ureal ami inlerestinir subject, has been decisively niani Tested. The question of annexation has been presented nakedly lo'thcir consideration, llv the troalv itself, all collateral ami ii:ciiluntal issue?, which were calculated to liviilo iiud dstract the public council.", were carefully avoided.

At your last session, I submitted to the at tention of Congress, I lit Convention with the Republic of Peril, of the I7ih of March, 1811, providing for the adjustment of the claims of citi&MK of the United Status against that Re public ; but no dullnitivo action was taken upr.n tho suhjuct. 1 again invito to it your attention and prompt art ion. In my lat Annual Message, I felt it to he my duty tn make 'known lo Congress, in torim both plain anil -emphatic, my opinion in regard to the war which lias so long existed between Mexico ami Texas-, wlncli, since the tiattle of Han Jacinto, has consisted altogether of preda tory incursions, attended by circumstances re voltinirito humanity. I repeat nmv, ihat Ithoi aid, tliat, after eight years of feeble mid Inef fectual cff'rla to recover I ova, it was ti.ne that the war should have ceased. The United States hatl n' direct interest in the question. Thu contiguity of tho two nations to our terri tory was hut too well calculated to involve our peace. (Unjust suspicions were engendered in the mind of one or the other of the belligerents agaiint us ; and, as a necessary consequence, American interests wore made to sudor, and It must also bo a matter of unminglcd cratifi-1 from the Treasury.

Instructions liavo thus come up to both branches of Congress from their re snectivo constituents. In terms tho most em pbatic. It is tho will of both tho People and the States, tint Texas shall bo annexed to the Union promptly and ImmcUiatcly. It may be honed that, in carrying into execul.on the pub lic will, thus declared, all collateral Issues may bo avoided.

This Government, from tune to time, exerted its friendly offices tn bring about a tor initiation of livstilities upon tcriiH honorable alike lo both the belligerent, its elfins in this behalf proved univniling. Mexico seemed almost without an object, to persevere in the war, and no other alternative was left the Hxnc utivo but to lake advantage of t lie well-known dispositions of Texas, :unl to invite her to voter into a treaty for anuuxinj her territory to thai of tho United Slates. Since your last session, Mexico lias threatened to renew ihu war, and Iris either mule, or proposes to make, formidable prep ira ions for imnding Texas. She has issued decrees and proclamations, prrpnra-. tory id the commencement of host. lints, full of. threats, revelling to humanity; an I winch, :if carried into cltect, would arouse the ntlemhm of VI I Chris tendom. This now duiii'iiistr.riitm f fee inL', there 19 too much re isou lo believe, has been produced in consequence of I he negotiation of the late treaty of annexation w'tth Texas. The K.xccuiive, therefore, couhl not be in lilii-rent to such proceedings ; and il fell it to be due, as well to itself as to the honor of the country, ihat a -irons representation should be made to the .Mexican Government upon ihe -object.

The inclination of tlie-c numerous trilics lead them invariably to war whenever pretexts exist. Mexico hid no just "round of displeasure against this Gjvernnicnt or People for negotiating the treaty. What interest of hers wa aiUcled bv tlie treaty 7 She was despoiled of nothing, since Texas was for ever lost to her. Tho independence of Texas was recogniz".! by several of tho leading Powers of the euth. Slio was free to treat 'rco lo adopt her own line of policy free to lake the course which she be lieved was best calculated to secure Ju-r happiness. Her Government and IVopIo decided on annc-x.itnn tolheUniiel States; ami ihu Kxeeuiive saw, in ibe acqni ilijn of such a territory, the means of advan cing their permanent liappiuco nnd plnry. What principle of ijojI laith then wa v'olilcdt what rule ot uoliilctl nurals trainple.l under loot? Sofarns Mexico herself wai cnieernel, iho meaeure shonlil i have been regarded by her ai hbhiy beneficial.

RinUrulion paid, with tho exception of a sum falling shurt of S 100,000, exclusively out of the proceeds of the sales of her public lands. Wo could not, with honor, take the lands, without assuming tin; full payment of nil incumbrances upon them. Nothing has occurred sinc.o your last session. to induce a doubt that the dispositions of Texas rem nn unaltered. No intimation of an altered determination, mi tho put of her Government and people, lias been furnished tn tho Executive. Slie still desires to throw herself under the protection of our laws, and partake of the bles sings of our federative system ; while every American interest would seem to require H Tho extension f our coastwise and foreign trail", to nil amount almost incalculable the enlargement of tho market for our manufac tures a constantly growing market for our agricultural productions safely to our frontiers, and additional streugih and stability to the Union these aro the results which would rap idly devclnpe themselves, upon tho consutnma tioti of the incisure of annexation. In such event, I will not doubt but that Mexico would tind her true interest to consist in meeting the advances of this Government in a spirrt of nmitv Nor do I apprehend anv serious complaint from any other quarters no sufficient "round oxi-its for such complaint. We should inter fere in no respect with Iho rights of any other nation. I here cannot be gathered from the act, ny design nn our part to do so whh their posies-ions on this Continent. Wo have intcr-po-ed no impediments in tlie way of such acqni sitions of territory, largo and extensive as many of lliL'iii are, as the leading powois of Kuropo have tn-ide, from time to time, in every part of tho world. We seek no conquest made l,y wan. o intrVuo will liavo been resorted to, or acts of diplomacy essaved, to accrtiijilis-h the annexation of Texas. Free and independent her.-eli, she asks to be received into our Union It is a question for our own decision, whether she shall be received or not The two Governments having already agreed, through their ro.-pcctiio organs, on I lie terms of annexation, I would recommend their adoption by Congress in the form of a joint resolution, or act, to be perfected and made binding on the two countries, when adopted in like manner by the Government of Texas. In order that tho subject may bo fully pre senled ju all its hearings, the correspondence which has taken ikice, in reference to it, since ihu adjournment t Congress, between the Uni ted States- Texas, and Mexico, is herewith transmit cd. The amendments proposed by the Senate to tin Convention concluded between the United States and Mexico on the tJOlh of November, 1818, liavo been transmitted through our Minis, tor, for the concurrence of the Mexican Gov eminent ; but, although urged thereto, no action lias yet been had on the subject ; nor has any answer been given which would authorize a favorable conclusion in the In tine. part of the Government. All bulking institu tions, under whatever denomination they may pass, aro governed by an almost exclusive re gard to the Interest of Iho stockholders. That interest consists in the augmentation of profits, in the form of dividends, and a large surplus revenue entrusted to their custody is but too apt to lead to excessive loans and lo extrava would necessarily constitute achargo upon tho Treasury. Whether such a result would bo desirable, it would be for.Congrcss in its u isdnm tn determine, it may in general be asserted, that radical alterations in any ystctn should rather bo brought about gradually, than by sud den changes .: and by pursuing this prudent policy in the reduction of letter postage, tho De- gantly largo issues of paper.

S?l'le:, 15M, m relation ivirld, m a current which continues to increase in 111 llt10 retail slreiwili. Mexico requires a permanent boundary between that young republic and herself. Texas, nt no distant diy,if she continues separa'e and detached from the United States, will inevitably seu'c to con silidats her s renjlh by addini; lo her domain the contiguous provinces of Mexico. Thi spirit of rev.ili from iho control of the Central O iveriouent has, heretofore, manifested i'salf in some nf those prov inces; ami it is fair to infer that they would be incli ne! to lake tho first f ivoraMu opportunity io proclaim their independence, and to form close alliances wuh Texas. Thewir would thus bo enKlcs j or, if cessa lions of hostilities should occur, they wuld only en dure for a season. Tho interests of Mexico, therefore, could in nothing be bolter consulted linn in a peace with her neigh bors, which wou'd result in thu establishment of a permanent b niudary, Upon Ihe r.ilificalion nf tile treaty, ths Utccuuvo was prepued lo treat with her on the most l.beral basis. Ilenco the boundaiies of Texas were left undciincd by iho treaty. The Kxeeu iive proposed to settle thesj upon terms that all tlie world should have pronounced just and iieasanaUe. No nesoliaiion upon that pmtu could have been undertaken between the United Stales and Mexico, in advance ot the raliliciiion ot tho treaty. We should have had no ritfh: a-a power in authority, to have conducted such a ncjo'iaiion , and to have undertaken it, would Invj been an assumption eq ially revelling tu the pride of Mexico nnd Texas, and suljecling us to the eliarao of arrogance while to have proposed in advance ot annexation, to -alisfy Mexico for any contingent interest she might have in Texas, would have been to have trcaled Texas, nut f i i i . . . as nu inuepeiiociu p iwer, out as a incru ilepen-Jency I trade, the order for the expulsion of foreigners, and that of a more recent date in regard to passports all of which aro considered as in violi tiou of the Treaty of Amity and Commerce between tho two countries, hate led to a correspondence of considerable length between the Minister for Foreign Relations ami our Representative at Mexico, but without any sitisfac'tory result. They remain still unad justed ; and many and serious inconveniences have already resulted to our citizens in conse quence of them. Questions growing out of tho act nf disarm iug a body uf To.xi-iii troops under tho command of Major Snively, by an officer in the service of the United States, acting under the orders of our Government; and thu forcible entry into the Custom House at llryarly's landing, on Red River, by certain ciliznns of the United States, and taking away therefrom the goods seized by the Collector of the Customs, as forfeited under the laws of Texas, have been adjusted ; so far as tho powers of tho Executive extend. The correspondence between the two Governments in reference to both subjects, will be found amongst tho accompanying documents. It con tains a full statement of all tho facts and cir cumstances, willi tho views taken on both sides, and tlie principles nn winch the questions have been adjusted. It remains for Congress to make every department of industry with great and ru limits embarrassment. I ho greatest vigilance becomes necessary on tho part of tho Govern mont to guard against tins state of things, i he depositors must bo oivo'l distinctly to under stand that tho lavors of the uovertimcnt wit' bo altogether withdrawp, or substantially diminish ed, if its revenues shall be regarded as additions to their banking capital, or as the foundation of an enlarged circulation. 1 bo uovenunont, through its revenue has, at all tunes, an impor tant part to perform in connexion with the cur rency ; and it greatly depends upon its vigilance and carf whether tho country ho involved in embarrassments similar to those which it has had recently to encounter ; or, aided by tho ac lion of the Tieaury, shall bo preserved in a sound end healthy condition. The dangers to be guarded against arc great Iv augmented by too largo a surplus of revenue. When that surplus exceeds in amount what shall be required by a wisn and prudent fore cast to meet unforeseen contingencies, tho Leg islature il.-elf may come to be seized with a disposition to indulge in extravagant nppronria lions, to objects, many of which may and most probably would be found to conflict with tho Constitution. A fancied expediency is elevated above Constitutional authority ; and a reckless and wasteful extravagance hut too certainly follows. Tho important power of taxation, winch, when exercised in its most restricted f inn, is a burden on labor am! production, isrc- sorted to, under various pretexts, lor purposes having no alliniiy to the motives which dictated its grant, and tho extravagance of Government stimulates individual extravagance, until tlie spirit of a wild and ill-regulated speculation, involves one and all in its tinlortunate results In view of such fatal consequences, it may be laid down as an axiom, founded in moral and political trirtlt, that no greater taxes should he imposed than arc necessary for an economical administration of tho government ; and that whatever exists beyond, should ho reduced or modified. This doctrine docs in noway conllict with the exercise i fa sound discrimination in thu selection of the articles to be taxed, which a due regard to tho public weal would at all limes suggest luthe Legislative mind. It leaves the range of selection undefined; and such so lection should always bo made with an eye lo the great interests of tho country- Composed as is the Union of separate and independent Slates, a patriotic Legislature will not fail in consulting the interests of tho parte, to adopt such course as will be best calculated to ad vauce the harmony of tho whole: and thus en suro that permanency in the policy of the Gov eminent without which all efforts to advance the public prnsperi'y aro vain and fruitlcs This great and vital! v important task rests witli Congress ; and the Executive can do no more llian recommend the general principles which should govern in its execution 1 ruler you to tho report ot the Secretary ot War, lor an exhibition of the condition ol the army : and recommend to you, as well worthy your best consideration, many of the sugges tions it tontaitig. I lie becret.iry in no degree exaggerates tho great importance, of pressing forward, without delay, in the work ol erecting and finishing tho fortitica.ions, to which he par country and foreign ports and upon our own waters, lor tho transportation ol tlio mail l liu example of tho Unlisli Government ts well worthy of imitation in this respect. Tho belief is strongly entertained that ihu cti'oltl mcnt-s arising from the transportation of mail miillor to foreign countries, would opernto of itself as an inducement In cause individual enterprise to unde-rtiiko that branch of the task; nnd thu remuneration of tho Govern ment would consist in tho addition readily made to our steam navy incasu of emergen cy by tho ships so employed. Should this suggestion meet your approval, the proprie ty of placing -such ships under the commune! of experienced ofTicers of llm Navy will not escape join observation. Tho application of steam to the purposes nf naval warfare, cogently recommends an extensive strum marine-in important in estimating tho do- leucc-i of thu country, rortuinitely tins may ho uitained by us to n great extent without incurring any large amount of expenditure. Steam vessels to be engaged in tlie transpor tation of the mails on our principle water courses, lakes, Mid parts of our coast, could also bo so constructed as to bo efficient as war vessels when needed ; and would of themselves constitute a formidable force in order to repeal attacks from abroad. We cannot be blind to the fact, that other na tions liavo already added large numbers of sleani ships to their naval armament, and this new and powerful agent is destined tn revolutionize (ho condition of the world. It becomes iho United States therefore, looking to their security, to adopt a similar policy; brought to it close. Tho internal tranquility nf tho country, threatened by agitating questions has been preserved. Thu credit of the Government, which had experienced u temporary embarrassment, lias been 'thor oughly restored, Its coders, winch, lor n season, 'were empty, have been replenished. A currency, nearly untlui ni in its value, lias taken tho placo of one depreciated nnd almost worthless. Commerce nnd manu factures, which had suffered in common with every other interest, liavo once more revi ved ; nnd tho whole country exhibits nn as pect of prosperity and liamiiitoss. 1 rado' nnd barter, no longer governed by n wild nnd speculative mania, rests upon n solid nnd substantial footing ; nnd thu rapid growth of our cities, in every direction, bespeak most strongly I ho fitvoriiblo circumstances by which we are surrounded. AIv happiness, in tho retirement which shortly nwnils me, is the nrdent hope which 1 experience, that this state of prosperity is neither deceptive nor destined to bo short lived; nnd that measures which Imvo not yet received its sanction, but which I cannot but regard ns closely connected with iho honor, tho glory, and still mora enlarged prosperity of tho country, aro destined, nt nn -carlv day, to receive tlm approval of Con gress. '-Under these circumstances, nnd willi these anticipations, I shall most gladly leave to others, more nhle than myself, the noble nnd pleasing task of sustaining tho public prosperity. ! shall carry with me into re tirement the gratifying reflection thai, as my solo object throughout has been lo advance the public good, I may not entirely have failed in accomplishing it ; nnd this gratifi cation is heightened in no small degree by the Tact that when, under a deep and abiding senso of duty, I have found myself con strained to resort lo tho qualified Veto, it lias neither been followed by disapproval on the part of the People, nor weakened in any degree their attaphmeut lo that great con servative feature of our Government.

It repicsented in ibis, the spirit of our People, who are rrady lo sacrifice much for peace, but nothing lo intimidation. A war. under nuv circumstances, is greatly la be deplored, and the Uuiled Slates is the fast nation to desire it but if, as tho condition of peace, it bo re pure I ot us lo mrego Iho unquestionable riuht of lioiiiai! with on independent power, of our own Comment, upon mailers highly interesting to both, nnd thai upon n na'.ed and unsusliiincd preten sion of claim by a third power, lo control tho free will of the power wilh whom we treat devo ed as wo may bo to peace, and anxious in cultivate friendly relations wilh the whole world, iho Exeeiniie doe not hesita'c to say that, tho l'coplo of (lie united amies would ho willing lo bravo nil consequences, sooner lhan submit lo such conditions.

Other considerations of a controlling rhnrac tor influenced I tie rourso of the Kxecutivo The treaty which had thus been negotiated had failed to roreive tho ratification of the Sen. ale. Ono nf the chief objections which were urged against it, was found to exist in tho fact lhat Iho question of annexation had not been - submitted to tho ordeal of public opinion in the United States.
