To the Senate and House, of Representatives : I transmit, herewith, reports of the Secre tary of State, the Secrotary of the Nary, and tho Attorney General, in reply to a resolu tion of the Senate of the 24th of March last, and also to a resolution of the House of Repre sentative! of tbe 8th of May instant, both having reference to the routes of transit be tween the Atlantic and Pacific oceans through the republics of New Granada and Nicaragua, and to tho condition of affairs in Central America. These documents relate to questions of the highest importance and interest to the people of the United States. Tho narrow isthmus which connects the con tinents of North and South America, by tbe facilities it affords for easy transit between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, rendered the countries of Central America an object of spe cial consideration to all maritime nations, which has been greatly augmented in modern times by the operation of changes in commer cial relations, especially those produced by the general use of steam as a motive power by land and sea To us. on account of its geographical position and of our political in terest as an American State of primary mag nitude, that isthmus is of peculiar importance, just as the isthmus of Suez is. for correspond ing reasons, to the maritime powers of Europe. But above all, the importance to the United States of securing free transit across the Ameri can isthmus has rendered it of paramount in terest to us since the settlement of the Terri tories of Oregon and Washington, and the ac cession of California to the L nion. Impelled by these consideration, the United States took steps at an early day to assure suitable means of commercial transit, by ca nal, railway, or otherwise, acrossthis isthmus. We concluded, in the fir't place, a treaty of peace, amity, navigation, and commerce with the republic of .New Granada, among the conditions of which was a stipulation, on the f*rt of New Granada, guaranteeing to the nited States the right of way or transit across that part of the isthmus which lies in the territory of New Granada, in contidera tion of which the United States guaranteed in respect of the same territory the rights of sovereignty and property of New Granada. The effect of this treaty was to afford to tho people of tho United States facilities for at once opening a common road from Chngrc to Panama, and for at length constructing a railway in the same direction, to connect reg ularly with steamships, for the transportation of mails, specie, ana passengers, to and fro, between tbe Atlantic and Pacific States and Territories of the United States. The United States also endeavored, but un successfully, to obtain from the Mexican re public the cession of the right of way at the northern extremity of the isthmus by Tehuan tepee, and that line of c( mmuuication con tinues to be an object of solicitude to the peo ple of this republic. In tho meantime, intervening between the republic of New Granada an 1 tho Mexican republic, lie the States of Guatemala, Salva dor, Honduras. Nicaragua, and Costa Kica, th.severed members ot the former republic of Central America. Hero, iu tiie torrit<>ry of the Central American Slates, is tho nar rowest part of the isthmus, and hither, of course, public attention hss been directed as the moat inviting field for enterprises of inter oceanic communication between the opposite shores ol America, and more especially to tbe territory to the States of Nicaragua ani Hon duras. Paramount to that of any European State as was the interest of the United States in the security and freedom of projected lines of tra vel across the isthmus by the way of Nicara gua and Honduras, still we did not yield in this respect to any suggestions of territorial aggrandizement, or even of exclusive advan tage, either oZ communication or of com merce. Opportunities had not been wanting to the United States to procure such advan tages by peaceful means, and with full and free assent of those who alone had any legiti mate authority in the matter. We disre garded those opportunities, from considera tions alike tf domestic and foreign policy; just as. evon to the present day, we have per severed in a system of justice and respect for the rights and interests of others as well as our own in regard to each and all of the States of Central America. It was with surprise and regret, therefore, that the United States learned, a few days after the conclusion of the treaty of Guada lupe Hidalgo, by which the United States bo came, with the consent of the Mexican repub lic, the rightful owners of California, and thus invested with augmented special inter est in the political conditiou of Central Amerg ica, that a military expedition under the au thority of the British government had landed at San Juan del Norte, in the State of Nica ragua, and taken forcible possession of that port, the necessary terminus of any canal cr railway across the isthmus within the territo ries of Nicaragua It did not diminish the unwelcomeness to us of this act on the part of Great Britain to find that she assumed to justify it on the ground of an alleged prote?tor?hip of a small and obscure band of uncivilized Indians, whose proper name even had become lost to history, who did not constitute a state capablo of territorial sovereignty, either in fact or of right, and all political interest in whom, and in the territory they otcupied, Great Britain had previously renounced by successive trea ties with Spain when Spain was sovereign of the country, and subsequently with indepen dent Spanish America Nevertheless and injuriously affected as the United ?t*tea conceived themselves to have been by this act of the British government, and by its occupation about tho same time of insular and of continental portions of the ter ritory of the State of Honduras, we remen bered the mau}' and powerful ties and mutual interest; by which Great Britain and the Uni ted States are associated, and we proceeded in earnest good faith, and with a sincere desire to do whatever might strengthen the bonds of i>eaeo between us, to negotiate with Great Britain a convention to assure the perfect neu trality of ail inter-oceanic cotmnunica'ions across the isthmus, and as the indispensable condition of such neutrality, the absolute in dependence of the States of Central Amcrca, and their complete sovereignly within the limits of their own territory, as well against Great Britain as against the United States. We supposed we had accomplished that object by the convention of April ID, 1S50, which would never have been signed nor ratified on the part of the United States but for the con viction that in virtuo of its provisions, neither Great Britain nor the United States was there after to exercise any territorial sovereignty, in faot or in name, in any part of Central Ameri ca, however or whensoever acquired, either before or afterwards The essential object of the convention?the neutralization of the isthmus?would, of, course, become a nullity if either Great Britain or the United States were to continue to hold exclusively islands or mainland of the isthmus, and more especially if, under any claim of protectorship of Indians either government were to remain foreversov ereign in fact of the Atlantic shores of the three States of Costa Kica, Nicaragua, and Honduras. I have alroady communicated to tbe two houses of Congress full information of the pro tracted, and hitherto fruitless efforts, which the United States have made to arrange this international question with Great Britain. It is referred to on the present occasion only be cause of its intimate connection with the special object now to be brought to the at tention of Congrew. 11 , unsettled political condition of some of tlie Spanish-American republics has never ceased to be regarded by this forernaiDt with solicitude and regret oo their own ac count, while it has been the source of con* tinual embarrassment in our public and pri vate relations with them In themidstof the violent revolutions and the wars by which they are continually agitated, their public authorities are unable to afford due protection ?' foreigners and to foreign interests withia their territory, or even to defend their own 01 againstindividual aggressors, foreign or domestic, the burden of the inconveniences SjJJS" ?f,Wh,,ch- th?r?^re, devolves, in no inconsiderable degree, upon the foreign States associated wth them in close relations of ge<r graphical vicinity or of commercial inter course. .ffEIri^S ?mPha*ic??J, the Situation cf the IJilted States with respect to the repub lies of Mcnco and ot Central America Not withstanding. however the relative remote ness of the European States from America, facts of the same order have uot failed to ap pear conspicuously in their intercourse with Spanish-American republics. Great Britain has repeatedly been constrained to recur to measures of force for the protection of British interests in those countries France found it necessary to attack the castle of San Juan da Llua, and even todebark troop* at VeraCrus, in order to obtain redress of wrongs done to Frenchmen in Mexico. What is memorable in this respect in the conduct and nolioy of the United States is, that while it would be as easv for us to annex and absorb new territories from America as it is for European States to do this in Aaiaor Afri ca. and while, if done by us, it might be justified as well on the alleged ground of the advantage which would accrue therefrom to the territories annexed and absorbed, yet we have abstained from doing it, in obedicnoe to Considerations of right not less than of policy and that, while the courageous and self-reliant spirit of our peocde prompts them to hardy en terprises, and they occasionally yield to the temptation of taking part in the troubles of countries near at hand where they know how potential their influence, moral and materia* must be, the American government bas uni formly and steadily resisted all attempts of individuals in the United States to undertake armed aggression against friendly Spanish American republics. While the present incumbent of the ex ecutive office has been in discharge of its duties, he has never failed to exert all the authority in him vested to repress such enter prises, because they are in violation of tho law of the land, which the constitution re quires him to execute faithfully ; because they | are contrary to the policy of the government ? and because to permit them would be a de parture from good faith towards those Ameri can republics in amity with us, which are en titled to, and will never cease to enjoy, in their calamities the cordial sympathy. and in their prosperity the efficient good will, of the government and of tho people of the United fctites. To say that onr laws in this respect are sometimes violated, or successfully evaded is only to say what is true of all laws in 'all countries, but not more so in the United States than in any one whatever of the countrios of Europe Suffice it to repeat that the laws of the Imtcd States prohibiting all foreign mili tary enlistments or expeditions within oar ter rit >ry have been executed with impartial good fa.th, and, so far as the nature of things per mit*. as well in repression of private persons as of the official agents of other governments, both of Europe an 1 America. Among the Central American republics, to which modern events have imparted most prominence, is that of Nicaragua, by reason of its particular position on the isthmus Cit izens of the United States have established in its territory a regular interoceanic transit route, second only in utility and value to the one previously established in the territory of New Granada. The condition of Nicaragua would, it is believed, have been much more prosperous than it has been but for the occu pation of its only Atlantic port by a foreign power, and of the disturbing authority set up and sustained by the same power in a portion of its territory, by means of which its domes tic sovereignty was impaired, its public lands were withheld from settlement, and it was de prived of all the maritime revenue which it would otherwise c dle-t on imported merchan dise at San Juan del Norte In these circumstances of the political de bility of the republic of Nicaragua, and when its inhabitants were exhausted by long-con tinued civil war between parties, neither of them strong enough to overcome the other or permanently maintain internal tranquility oue of the contending factions of tho republic in\itei the assistance and co-operation of a small bodj of cititens of the United States from the btate of California, whose presence, as it appears, put an end at once to civil war, and restored apparent order throughout the territory of Nicaragua, with a new a iminis tration, having at its head a distiu<uisbed individual, by birth a cititen of the republic D. Patricio Rivas, as its Provisional Presi dent. It is the established policy of the United Sutes to recognise all governments without question of their source, or their organisation or of the means by which the governing per sons attain their power, provided there be a government de facto accepted by the people of the country, and with reserve only of time as to the recognition of revolutionary govern ments arising out of the subdivision of parent States with which we are in relations of amity ? ? do not go behind the fact of a foreign gov ernment exercising actual power to investi gate auestions of legitimacy ; we do not inquire into taecauses which may have led to acbange of government. To us it is indifferent whether a successful revolution has been aided bv for eign intervention or not; whether i'nsur rection has overthrown existing government and another has been established in its place according to pre-existing forms, or in a man ner adopted for the occasion by those whom we may lind in the actual possession of power. All these matters we leave to the people and public authorities of the particular country to determine; and their determination, whether it be by positive action or by ascertained ac quiescence. is to us a sufficient warranty of the legitimacy of the new government. Oaring the sixty seven years which have elapsed since the establishment of the exist ing Government of the United States, in all which time this Union ha< maintained undis lurbed domestic tranquillity, we have had >coasion to recognise governments dt facto bunded either by domestic revolution or by' nilitary invasion from abroad, in manv of t?,? fovernments of Europe, 7 It is the more imperatively necessary to ap >ly this rule to tho Spanish American repub ics m consideration of the frequent and not eldi-m anomalous changes of organisation or i J ministration which they undergo, and the 'evolutionary nature of most of these change*, ?j waich the recent series of revolutions in the ?lexican republic is an example, where five luccessivo revolutionary governments have nade their appearance in the courae of a few nonths, and been recognised successively each ? the political power of that country by the Jnited States. ?When, therefore, some time since, a new ninister from the republic of Nicaragua pre lented himself, bearing the commission of 'rosident Rivas, he must and would have been eceived as such, unless he was found on in luiry subject to personal exception, but for be absence of satisfactory information upon he question whether President Rivas was s'n act the head of an established government of he republic of Nicar?<;ua, doubt as to which ruse not only from the circumstances of his .vowed association with armed emigrants re ently from the United States, but that the roj,oied minister himself was of that class of
