In this point of view, what the President siy of eur Foreign relation-becomes, in n certain sense, im portant, not thai he can involve us in wnrfaro without Ihe concurrence ul our own popular and Stale repre tative's in Connrcss, hut beCause tors i in unions, mis taking his prerogatives fancy, he hasjome su'-h puw er, and so confound an American wilh Humpi-an Executive. Wilh Mexico, we arc about to hive, we pljdly see 1 renewal of our ihpl 11111111' rclsl iii. A Minister Extraordinary fr.i 11 ih 1 United St ties.

But thecye ruusover the Message intend what the President says of Orccini. and of o r ncgntt ilions wilh, the great, tho rnhnz power of the F.nrlh, on lliis exciting topic, For with Mexico wo can ta'-e liber ties with iuipmity, she beinir wotk, and we strong, whereas with Oreat ilrnain, she, in arms is s'ronger than ever, and we have eotnpiritivelv less nu'itary efficiency now by sen or by land, than we had al the close of the list war. The President his renewed the eoinnronii-e propo ition of the -tilth degree of laiiluih-, wi'lt some qualification. This ,e have before nnnounccd. but the Union denied it lliionslr tcnor.ancc, or through deceit wiih the view of i.iipo-ing upon the public mind, crying all ihe while, 'the whole of Oregon or nine." Air P.ielienhnii unwisely njeeteil lint pro position, or, if in tliH thi'y to hi i!overiitii''iit, he 'thought it mint be nj-eied, lie failed to cue lint due consideration, so consihiiorv a propo-m in deserved.

"The clear and tin Tie tioub'e title" ofilu niessasnnf 1m vesr, dwindles into a tnle ihis year, that, Mr Polk helicrta, is maintained hv "irrefraiial le (acts and ar guments." Tin; is a decorous a-senion, whu.li can give no just offence. Meanwhile, Mr Polk recommends lint, m'ter the year's noli -e.oor 50vernment exten 'a i's jurisdiction over Oregon. This is eaier enac eil limn perfected.

If the Stale llinks nre ras cals, as the President hints they are, it is wonderful that merchants, firmers. inanulaeinres. mechanics' trust them with all the surplus capital they have!

Very wel : lei her in at once. Wo sou no tiso now in multiplying words about it. On tilts subject uf tho lariff, iho President is plain iiiid implicit, nnd wit imagine ilio people of Vt-rnioiii will bo no longer in doubt as lo u lial is meant bv "incidental" prolection. Tho doclriuo of tho message is this : lliat tlitt duly on every arli, In should he tliat wliicli will secure liu- greatest amount of leveuun from flacli particular article. This of cotirso invites, and presupposes, a larger importation. If ihis raises ton much revenue, then comes lite "incidental" pro tection alluded In : the duty is lo be reduced below revenue point, which liasnlirady ftlled t liu country wilh foreign goods and thus iucrrastii fat iliii' s am lo be afforde I lo the fori'ign mai ufarlurer for supplying llie American market! And litis rule is In be applied In all articles, those ill it wo do, as well as lliosi: lhat ue do not produce, with out discrimination. Then again lie goes for abolishing llie minimum piinriple. This will i'imIiIu lha importer to enter his goods at any price a fraudulent invoice may ii-.tlicuie. For instance ihe fine Snnlli American wools, which It iv" done llm ivoul-giowi-r so much mischief, may under lliis rule be entered ul :t fitiv cents per pound pay a inert; revenue duty nn lliis trilling sum, and lltus supplant the besl wool grown in Vermont. Divested of ill verbige, Isaac is llm languagii of Ihe Messace. "Discrimination," arcording lo Mr. Polk, consists in reducing tint duty on an arlic-" which in coniequeuco of eicessivp imvnrlation has already glutted llie market, and produced ion much revenue. Tim is Ihe protection lo American tnuustry nils tho entertainment Iu which the farmers, me chanics and manufactures are invited. Wo hopo il will provo satisfactory to those who have clamored so much about piolcciion lo wool. Suicide. Dea.
