XXXVIItil COFIGREU-Setnd Seulta. Tcxbdat, December 3. 8mit? ? After prayer by the Rer. Mmod Noble, th* journal of yesterday's proceedings wu read, when Mr. Kioolay, the President's private secretary, entered the hall and presented a message from the President of the United State*, which was read at the Clerk's desk, as follows : PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. Feilow-ntizen.i of the Senate and iiout* of Representative* In the midst of nnpreoedehted political troubles, we hat* caute of great gratitude t? God for unastta! good health, and most abundant hamsts^ You will not be surprised to learn that, in the peculiar exigencies of the times, otor intercourse with foreign nations has been attended with profound solicitude, chiefly turning upon our own domestic affairs. A disloyal portion of the Amerison people have, during the whole year, been engaged in an attempt to divide and destroy the I nion. A nation which endures factious domestic division, is exposed to disrespect abroad; and one party, u not both, is sure, sooner or later, to in*ok* fensign intervention. Hatfont thus tempted to interfere, are not always able to resist the ooansels of seeming expediency and ungenerous ambition, al vavH^u tuvMuioo BUU|>v?U uuuoi sucu lQQaeD* eee s?l'dom fail to be unfortunate and injoririous to those adopting them. the disloyal citiiens of the United States who have offered the ruin of our country, :n return for the aid and oomfort which they have invoked abroad, haVe received less patronage and encouragement than they probably expected. If it were just to suppose, as the insurgents have seemed to assume, that foreign nations, in this case, discarding all moral, social, and treaty obligations, would net solely, and selfishly, for the most speedy restoration of commerce, including, especially, the acquisition of cotton, those nations appear, as jet, not to have seen their way to their objeot more directly, or clearly, through the destruction, than through the preservation of the Union. If we eould dare to believe that foreign nations are aotuated by no higher principle than this, I am quite sure a sound argument could be made to show them that they can reach their aim more readily, and easily, by aiding to ?r?ah this rebellion, than by giving encouragement to it. ' The principal lever relied on by the insurgents for exciting foreign nations to hostility against us. a? already intimated, is the embarrassment of commerce. Those nations, however, not improbably, saw from the first, that it was the Union which made as well our foreign as our domestic commerce, they can scarcely have failed tr> pfcWeife that the effort for disunion ptr>J'uce9 the existing difficulty ; and that otie strong natien premises more durable peace, and a more extensive, valuable and reliable commerce, than oan the same nation broken into hostile fragments. It is not my purpose to review out dtsCussions with foreign states; because whatever might be their wishes, or dispositions, the integrity of our country, and the stability of our government, mainly depend, not upon them, but on the loyalty, virtue, patriotism, and intelligence of the American people, the correspondence itself, with the usual reservations, is herewith submitted. I venture to hope it will appear that we have practised prudence and liberality towards foreign powers, averting causes of irritation; ana, with firmness, maintaining our a?n an/1 1?ar/v? Since, however, it is apparent that here, as in every other State, foreign dangers necessarily attend domestic difficulties, I recommend that adequate and ample measures be adopted fojr maintaining the public defenses on every side. While, under this general recommendation. provision for defending our sea-coast line readily occurs to the mind, I also, in the same connection, ask the attention of Congress to our great lakes and rivers. It is believed that some fortifications and depots of arms and munitions, with harbor and navigation improvements, all at well selected points upon these, would be of great importance to the national defense ana preservation. I ask attention to the views of the Secretary of War, expressed in his report, upon the same general subject. 1 deem it of importanoe that the loyal regions of East Tennessee and western North Carolina should be eonnected with Kentucky, and other faithful parts of the Union by railroad. I therefore recommend, as a military measure, that Congress provide for the construction of such road as speedily as possible Kentucky, no doubt, will eo-operate, and, through her legislature, make the most judicious selection of a line. The northern terminus must connect with some existing railroad; and whether the route shall be from Lexington, or Nioholasville, to the Cumberland Gap; or from Lebanon to the Tennessee line, in the direction of Knoxville: or on some still different line, can easily be determined. Kentucky and the general government co-operating, the wor* can De eompieted in a very short time; and when done, it will be not only of vast present usefulness but also a valuable permanent improvement, worth its cost in all the future. Some treaties, designed chiefly for the interests of commerce, and having no grave political importance, have been negotiated, and will be submitted to the Senate for their consideration. Although we have failed to induce some of the commercial powers to adopt a desirable melioration of the rigor of maritime war, we have removed all obstructions from the way of this humane reform, except such as are merely of temporary and accidental occurrence. I invite your attention to the correspondence between her Britannic Majesty's minister accredited to this government, and the Secretary of State, relative to the detention of the British ship Perthshire in June last, bv the Unit?d States steamer Massachusetts, for a supposed breach of the blockade As this detention was occasioned by an obvious misapprehension of the facts, and asjustioe requires that we should commit no belligerent act not founded in atriot right, as sanctioned by pablie law, I recommend that an appropriation b? made to satisfy the reasonable demand of the owners of the veesel for her detention. I repeat the recommendation of my predetecaor, in his annual message to Congress in December last, in regard to the disposition of the surplus which will probably remain after satisfying the claims of American citizens against China, pursuant to the awards of the commissioners under the act of the 3d of Maroh, 1859 If, however, it should not be deemed advisable to carry that recommendation into effect, I would suggest that authority be given for investing the principal, over the proceed* of the surplus referred to, in good securities. with a view to the satisfaction of such other just claims of our citiiens against China as are not unlikely to arise hereafter in the eourse of our extensive trade with that Empire. By the act of the 5th of August last, Congress authorised the President to instruot the commanders of suitable vessels to defend themselves against, and to capture pirates. This authority has been exercised in a single instance only. For tbe more effectual protection of our extensive and valuable commerce, in the eastern seas especially, it seems to me that it would also be advisable to authorise the oommanders of sailing veesels to recapture any priies which pirates may make of United State* vessels and their cargoes, and the consular courts, now established by law in eastern countries, te adjudicate the ones, in the event that this mould not be objected to by the local authorities. if any good reason exists why we should persevere longer in withholding oar recognition of the independence end sovereignty of Hayti and Liberia, I am unable to discern it. Unwilling, however, to inaugurate a novel polioy in regard to them without the approbatioa of Congress, I submit for your eensideration the expediency of an appropriation for maintaining a charge d'affaires near each of ihoee new states. It Is does not admit of denbt that important commercial advantages might be secured by favorable treaties with then. The operations of the treasury daring the period which has elapeed since your adjournment have been conducted with signal success. Tbe patriotism of the people has placed at the disposal of tha government tbe large means demanded by the pablie exigencies. Much of the national loan has been taken by oitneas of the industrial classes. whose confidence in their eountry'a faith, and teal for their eountry'a deliverance from present peril, have induced them to oontributa to the support of the government the whole of their limited acquianions. This fa?t imposes peculiar obligations to economy in disbursement and energy in aetion. The revenue from all sources, including loans, for the fnanclal year ending on tbe 30th June, 1MI, was elghty-alx million eight hundred and thirty-five thousand nine hundred dollars and twenty-seven cents, and the expenditures for the same period, Including payments on account of the public debt, were eighty-four million five hundred and seventy-eight thousand eight hundred and thirty-four dollars and forty-seven cents; leaving a balance In the treasury, on the 1st July, of two million two hundred and fifty-seven thousand sixty-five dollars and eighty cents For the first quarter if tbe financial year, endtne on tty 30th September, 18*1, the reerfptJ ftotn alfsourqfj. including thfe balance of 1st of July, were oae buridmd and two million five hundred and thirtytwo tbcuaand five hundred and nine dollara and twenty-seven centa, and the expentea ninety-eight million two hundred and thirty-nine thousand seven hundrtd and thirty-three dollars snd nine cjsnta; letting a balance, on the 1st of October, 1861, of f-?ur million two hundred and ninety two thousand seven hundred and seventy-six dollars and eighteen cents Estimates for the remaining three auarters of the year, sud for the financial year 18M, together with his views of wsys and means for meeting the demands contemplated bv them, will be submitted to Congress by the Seeretary of the Treasury It Is gratifying to know that the expenditures made nc< ess*ry by the rebellion sre not be vond tbe resources of the loyal people, and to believe that the same patriotism which has thus far sustained the government will continue to ailltnf n It till n st tr-1/.n ah.II ....In I.I? the iand t respectfully refer to the report of the Seeretary of War for Information respecting tbe nu? merical strength of tbe army, and for recommendationa having In view an increase of lta efficiency and the well-wins rf tbe Various brancbeJ of the service lhtrustea to bla care. It la gratifying to know that the patriotism of tbe people baa proved equal to tbe occasion, and that the number of tronpa tendered greatly exceeds the force which Congress authorised me to call Into the field 1 refer with pieaaure to those portion* of his report which make allusion to th?> creditable degree of discipline already attained by our troops, and to tbe excellent sanitary condition of tbe ?n* tire army The recommendation of the Secretary for an organization of tbe militia upon a uniform basts, Is a subject of vital importance to the future safety of the country, and Is commended to tbe serious attention of Congress. Tbe large addition to tbe regular army, in connection with the defection that has s" considerably diminished the number of Its officers, ?;lve? peculiar Importance to hi? recommendation or Increasing the corps of cadets to the greatest capacity of the Military Academy. By mere omission, I presume, Congress has failed to provide cbaplalas for hospitals occupied by ^pluntePM. Tills subject was brought to my notice, and I was induced to draw up the form of a letter, one copy of which, properly addressed, has been delivered to each of the persons, and at the dates respectively named and statea, In a schedule, containing a!so the form of the letter, marked A, and herewith transmitted These gentlemen, I understand, entered upon tbe dii'lee designated, at the times respectively stated in tbe schedule, and have labored falttifully therein ever since. I therefore recommend that they be compensated at the same rate as chaplains in the army. I further suggest that general provision be made for chaplains to serve at hospitals, as well pi with regiments Tbe report of the secretary of the Navy presents In detail the operations of that branch of the service, the activity and energy which have characterized Its administration, and the results of measures to increase its efficiency and power Such have been the additions, by Construction and purchase, that It may almost be said a navy has been created and brought into service since our difficulties commenced Besides blockading our extensive coast, squadrons large; than ever before assembled under our flag have been put afloat and performed deeds which have increased our naval renown. 1 would invite specia' attention to the recom mendation of the Secretary for a mor* perfect organization of the navy by Introducing additional grade* In the service, The present organization is defective and un atlifactory, and the suggestionssubmitted by the department will, It Is believed, if adopted, obviate the difficulties alluded to, promote harmony, and increase the ttliciency of the navy There r.re three vacancies on the bench of the Supreme Court?two by the deceaas of Justices Daniel and McLean, and one by the resignation of Justice Campbell I have so far forborne making nominations to All these vacancies for reasons which I will now state. Two of the outgoing judges resided within the Statesnow overrun by revolt; so that if successors were appointed In the same localities, they could not now sefve upon their circuits; and many of the most competent men there, probably would not take the personal hazard of accepting to serve, even here, upon the bench. I have been unwilling to throw all the appointments northwa d, thus disabling myself from doing justice to the South on the return of peace; although 1 may remark that to transfer to the North one which'has heretofore been in the South, would not, with reference to territory or population, be unjust Dnrlne the long and brilliant judicial career of Judge McLean his circuit grew into an empire? altogether too large for any one judge to give the courts therein more than a nominal a?tendanc?? rising in population from one million four hundred and seventy thousand and Hghteen, in 183U, to six million one hundred and flfty-one thousand fonr hundred and five, in 1860. Besides this, the country generally has outgrown our present judicial system. If uniformity was at all Intended, the system requires that all the States stnll be accommodated with circuit courts, attended by supreme judges, while, in fact, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa. Kansas, Florida, Texas, California and Oregon, never had any such courts. Nor can this well be remedied without a change of the system; because the adding of judges to the Supreme Court, enough for the accommodation of all parts of the country, with circuit courts, would create a court altogether too numerous for a judicial body of any sort. And the evil, if It be one, will increase as new States come Into the Union. Clrcutt courts srp useful- nr th^v rtp. not uwfnl If n?*fnl nn State should be denied tbem; if not useful, no State should have tbem. Let tbem be provided for all, or abolished as to all. Three modifications occur to me, either of which, I think, would be an Improvement upon our rresent system. Let the Supreme Court be of convenient number In every event Then, first, let the whole country be divided Into circuits of convenient size, the supreme judges to serve in a number of them corresponding to their own number, and independent judges be provid ed for all the rest Or, secondly, let the supreme judges be relieved from circuit duties, and circuit judges provided for all the circuits. Or, thirdly, dispense with circuit courts altogether, leaving the judicial functions wholly to the district courts and an independent Supreme Court. 1 respectfully recommend to the consideration of Congress the present condition of the statute laws, with the hope that Congress will be able to find an easy remedy for many of the inconveniencea and evils which constantly embarrass those engaged In the practical administration of them Since the organiintion of the government, Congress has euected fsome five thousand acts and joint resolutions, which fill more tban six thousand closely printed pages, and are scattered through m?ny volumes. Many of these acta have been drawn In haste and without sufficient caution, so tbat tbeir provisions are ofW-n obscure In themselvess or In conflict with each other, or at least so doubtful as to render It very difficult for even the best Informed persons to ascertain pre cl?ely what the statute law really is. It seems to me very important tbat the statute laws should be made as plain and Intelligible as possible, aud be reduced to as small a compass as may consist with the fullness and precision of the will of the legislature and the perspicuity of Its language. This, well done, would, I think, greatly facilitate the labors of those whose duty it Is to atslst in the administration of the laws. and would be a lasting benefit to tbe people, by placing before them, In a more acceeslble and lutelligible form, tbe laws which so deeply concern their lute'eat* and duties. 1 am Informed by some whose opinions I respect, that all tbe sets of Congress now In force, and of a permanent and general nature, might be revised and re-written, so as to be embraced In one volume (or at most, two volumes) of ordinary and convenient size And I respectfully recommend to Congress to consider of the subject, and, If my suggestion be approved, to devise such plan as to their wisdom shall seem most proper for the attainment of the end proposed One of tbe unavoidable consequences of the present insurrection Is tbe entire suppression, In many places, of all ordinary means of administering civil Justice by the oflcers, and In tbe forms of existing law. This Is thecaae, In whole or In part, in all the Insurgent states; and as our armies advance upon and take possession of parts of those Htates, the practical evil becomes more spperent. There are no courts nor oScers to whom tbe citizens of other (Kates may apply for the enforcement of their lawful claims agaluat citizens of tbe Insurgent States; and there Is a vast amount of debt constituting such claims. Some have estimated It as high as two hundred million dollars, due, la large part, from lusurgents, la open rebellion, to loyal cltlzans who are, even oow, making great sacrifices In the discharge of their patriotic dnty to support the government. * Under these circumstances, I have bean urgently solicited to establish, by military power, courts to administer summary Justice in soch cases. I have thus far declined to do It. not becauae I bad any doubt the end proposed?tbe collection of the dews was Just and right In Itself, but because I / baT* bwn unwilling to go beyowl the pressure of necessity in the unnsoal eMrclM of power. Bat the power* of Congren I suppose are equal to the anomalous occasion, and therefore I refer the whole matter to Congress, with the hope that a plan may be devised for the administration of Jostloe la all such parts of the insurgent States and Territorial as may be under the control of this government, whether by a voluntary return to allegiance and order, or by the power of oar arms This, however, is not to be a permanent lustration, but a temporary substitute, snd to cesse as soon as the ordinary courts can be re-established In peace, !t Is important that some more convenient means should be provided, If possible, for the adjustment of claims against the government, rspeclslly In view of their Increased number by reason of the war. It Is as much the duty of government to render prompt justice against itself. In favor of cttixens. as it Is to sdmlnistcr tbe same, between private Individuals. The Investigation and adjudication of claims, In their natucr belong to the judicial denaftttient; >*esiHes it is apparent thsl the attention bt Congfcss Will be more than usually engaged, for Some time to come, with

great national questions. It was intended, by the organization or the court of c alms, mainly (o remove this branch of business from the halls of Congress; but while the court has proved to be an effectiv*. and valuable means of investigation, it in greaMlegree fails to effect the object of Its ereatlon, for want of power to make its judgment final Fully aware of the delicary, not to say danger of the subject, I commend to your careful consideration whether thla power of making Judgments final, may not properly be given to the court, reserving (he right of appeal on questions of law to the Supreme Court, with such other provisions as experience may nave shown to be necessary. I ask attention to the report of the Postmaster General, the following being a summary statement of the condition of the department: The revenue from all sources during the fls< al year ending June 30, 1W3I, including the annual permanent appropriation of seven hundred thous an<l dollara for the ^^importation of " free mall matter," wu nine million fortv-nlne thou?*nd two hundred and nlnctjr-?tx dollars and forty cents, b*ln?r about tWo per cent. 1*?? than the revenue for 19<|f). The expenditures were thirteen million six hundred and aix thousand seven hundred and Arty-nine dollars and eleven cent*, showing a decrease of more than'eight per cent, as compared with those of the previous year, and leaving an excess of txpenditure over the revenue for the last fiscal year of four million Ave hundred and fiftyseven thousand four hundred and sixty-two dollars and seventy-one cent* The gross revenue for the year ending June30, 1^3, is estimated at an increase of four per cent, on that of 1961, making eight million six hundred and eighty-three thousand dollars to which should be added the earnings of the department In carrying free matter, vix: seven hundred thousand dollars, making nine million three hundred and eighty-three thousand do'lars. The total expenditures of 1983 are estimated at twelve million* five hundred and twentv-elght thousand dollars, leaving an estimated deficiency of three millions one hundred and forty-five thousand dollars to be supplied from the treasury. in addition to the permanent appropriation. The present Insurrection shows,! thluk. that the extension of this District across the Potomac river, at the time of establishing the capital here, was eminently wise, and consequently that the r< llnquishment of that portion of it which lies within the State of Virginia was unwise and dangerous. I submit for consideration the expediency of regaining that part of the Dl*trict, and the reitoration oftheorlglnal boundaries thereof, through negotiations with the State of Virginia The report of the Secretary of the Interior, with the accompanying documents, exhibits the condition of the several branches of thejpublic busine?s pertaining to that department. The depressing influences of the Insurrection have been especially felt in the operations of the Patent and General Land Offices. The cash receipts from the sales of public lands during the past year have exceeded the expenses of our land system only about two hundred thousand dollars. The sales have been entirely suspended in the Southern States, while the interruptions to the business of the country, and the diversion of large numbers of men from labor to military service, have obstructed settlements in the new States and Territories of the northwest. The receipts of the Patent Office have declined in nine months about one hundred thousand dollars, rendering a large reduction of the force employed necessary to make It self-sustaining The demands upon the Penlion Office will be largely Increased by the insurrection. imerous applications for pensions, based upon the casualties of the existing war, have already been madfe There is reason to believe that many who are now upon the pension rolls and In receipt of the bounty of the government, are In the ranks of tbe insurgent army, or giving them aid and comfort. The Secretary of the Interior has directed a suspension of tbe payment of the pensions of such prions upon proof of their disloyalty. I recommend that Congress authorize that officer to cause tbe names of such persons to be stricken from the pension rolls. The relations of the government with the Indian tribes have been greatly disturbed by the insurrection, especially In the southern superlntendency and In that of New Mexico. The Indian country south of Kansas is In tbe poaseaaion of Insurgents from Texas and Arkansas. The agents of tbe United States appointed since the 4th of March for this supertntendency have been unable to reach their posts, while the most of those who were In office before that time have espoused the Insurrectionary cause, and assume to exercise the powers of agents by virtue of commissions from tbe insurrectionists. It has been stated In the public press that a portion of those Indians have been organized as a milita-y force, and are attached to tbe army of tbe Insurgents Although the government has no official Information upon tbe subject, letters have been written to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs by several prominent chiefs, giving assurance of their loyalty to the United States, and expressing a wish for the presence of federal troops to protect tbem It Is believed that upon the repossession of tbe country by the federal forces the Indians will readily cease all hostile demonstrations, and resume their former relations to the government Agriculture, confessedly the largest Interest of the nation, has, not a department, nor a bureau, but a clarkship only, assigned to it in the Government. While it is fortunate that this great interest is so independent in its nature as to not have demanded and extorted more from the Government, I respectfully ask Congress to consider whether something more cannot be given voluntarily with general ad vantage. Annual reports exhibiting the condition of our agriculture, commerce, aud manufactures would present a fund of information of great practical value to the comtry. \V bile I make no suggestion a* to details, I venture the opinion that an agricultural and statistical bureau might profitably be organized.

Two mate* of veaseia engaged in the trade, and one person in equipping a veaael as a slaver, have been convicted and subjected to the penalty of fine and imprlaonment, and one captain, taken with a cargo of Africans on board hia vessel, has been convicted of the highest grade of offence under our laws, the punlsnuuent of which Is death The Territories of Colorado, Dakotah and Nevada, t reated by the last Congress, have been organlud, and civil administration has beeu inaugurated therein under auspices especially gratifying, when it Is considered that the leaven of treason was found existing in some of these new countries when the federal officers arrived there. The abundant natural resources of these Territories, with the security and protection afforded by organized government, will doubtless invite to them a large immigration when peace shall re store the business ef the country to its accustomed channels. I submit the resolutions of the legislature of Colorado, which evidence the patriotic spirit of the peonle of the Territory.

Tbe Insurrection baa been the cauae ?f much suffering and sacrifice to Its inhabitants, and a* they have no representative iu Congress, that body should riot overlook their just claims upon the governmvnt. At yotir late session a joint resolution was adopt* d authorizing the President to take measures for facilitating a proper representation of tbe industrial interests of the United States at the exhibition of tbe Industry of all nations to be bolden at London In the year 18M I regret to say 1 have been unable to give personal attention to this subject?a subject at once so Interesting in iUelf, and so extensively and Intimately connected with the mat*~lal prosperity of tbe world. Through the Secretaries of State and of the Interior a plan or av?tcm has been devised, and partly matured, and which will be laid before yon. Under and by virtue of the act of Congress entitled "An act to confiscate property used for insurrectlonary purposes," approved Augusts, 1861, tbe legal claims of certain persons to tbe labor and service of certain other persons have became forfeited; and numbers of the latter, thus liberated, are already dependent on tbe United states, and must be provided for in some way. Besides this. It Is not Impossible that some of the States will peas similar enactments for tbelr own benefit respectively, and by operation of which, pertons of tbe same class will be thrown apoa them for disposal. In such case 1 recommend that Congrees provide for accepting such persons from such States, according to some mode of valuation, In lieu, pr tanto of direct taxes, or upon aome other plan to be agreed on with such States re- 1 spec lively; that such persons, on each acceptance by tbe general government, be at once deemed free; and that, la any event, atop* be lata for colonising both clMMt, (or the ftrst one mentioned. iHbe otber, bell not be brought Into exlstence,) at acme place, or places,in a clinaato congenial them. It might be well to coastder, too, whether the free colored people already la the United Statea could not, ao far as Individual* made deal re. be Included la auch colonisation To carry oat the plan of colonisation may Involve the acquiring of territory, and also the appropriation of money beyond that to be expended In the territorial acquisition Having practiced the acqalaltlon of territory for aearly sixty yeare, the question of constitutional power to do ao la no longer an open one with na The power was questioned at first by Mr. Jefferson, who, bowever, In the purchase of Louisiana yielded hU acruples on the plea of great expediency. If It be aald that the only legitimate object of acquiring territory la to furnish homes for white men, this measure effect* that oblectj for the emigration of colored men leaves additional room for white men remaining or coming here. Mr JeflVrson. however, placsd the importance of procuring Lou4slina more on political snd commercial grounds than on providing room for population On this whole proposition. Including the appropriation of money with the acquisition of territory, does not the expediency amount to absolute necessity?that, without which the government Itself cannot be perpetaated f The war continues In considering the policy to be adopted for suppressing the Insurrection, I have been anxious aid careful that the Inevitable conflict for thia purpose ahall not degenerate into a violent and remorseless revolutionary ftraggle I have, therefore, In every caae. thought it proper to keep the integrity t>f the Union prominent as the primary object of the contest on our part, leaving all questions which are uot of vital military importance to the more deliberate action of the legislature In the excrcfse of my best discretion I have adhered to the blockade of the ports held by the insurgent*, Instead of putting in force, by proclamation thr I a \u of t'on enai IpA at thr lats session for closing those ?irts. 80, al-o, obeying ibe dictates of prodence, as well at tbe obliga'ions of law, instead of transcending, I Lave adberrd to the act ol Congress tr confiscate property used for insurrectionary purposea If a new law upon the aimr subject aboil bepropoaed.lt* propriety will be duly considered. The Union mnat be preserved ; and hence, all indispensable mean# must be employed We should not be in haste to determine that rad %1, and extreme measures, which may r^ach the loyal as well as tbedialoyal. are indispensable. The inaugural address at the beginning of the Adminlatration, and the message to Congress at the late special session, were both mainly devoted to the domestic controversy out of which the insurrection and consequent war have sprung. Nothing now occurs to add or subtract, to or from the principles, or general purposes, stated and expressed, In those documeuts. The la*t ray of hope for preserving the t nton peaceably, expired at the aaaault upon Fort Sumter; and a general review of what baa occurred alnce may not be unprofitable What was painfully uncertain then, is much better defined and more distinct now ; and the progress of eventa la plainly in the right direction. The Insurgents claimed a strong support from north of Mason and Dixoifa line; and the friends c? the Union were not free from apprehenalou on the point This, however, was aoon settled definitely, and 011 the right aide South of the line, noble little Delaware led off'right from the first. Maryland was made to seem against the l/'nion. Our soldiers were assaulted, bridgea were burned, and railroads torn up, within tier limits; and we were many days, at one time, without the ability tn hrina a w^tmpnf nv?r h*>r anil ?n t hp capital. Now, her bridges and railroads are repaired and open to the government; she already gives seven regiments to the came of the Union and none to the enemy; and her people, at a regular election, have sustained the Union, by a larger majority, and a larger aggregate vote than they ever before gave to any candidate, or any question. Kentucky, too, for some time In doubt, la now decidedly, and, 1 think, unchangeably, ranged on the side of the Union Missouri is comparatively quiet; and I believe cannot again be overrun by the insurrectionists. These three states of Maryland, Kentucky, and .Missouri, neither of which would promise a single soldier at first, have now an aggregate of not less than forty thoueand in the field, for the Un'cn; while, of their citizens, certainly not more than a third of that number, and they of doubtful whereabouts, and doubtful existence, are in arms against it After a somewhat bloody struggle of month* winter closes on the Union people of western Virginia, leaving them mast- r* of their own country. An insurgent force of about fifteen hundred, for months dominating the narrow peninsular region, constituting the counties of Accomac and Northampton, and known as eastern shore of Virginia, together with some contiguous parte of Maryland, have laid down their anus ; and the people there have renewed their allegiance to, and accepted the protection of, the old fla^. This leaves no armed insurrectionist north of the Potomac, or east of the Chesapeake. Also we have obtained a footing at each of the isolated points on the southern coast, of Hatteras, Fort Royal, Tybee Island, near Savannah, and Ship Island ; and we likewise have some general accounts of popular movements. In behalf of the Union, in North Carolina and Tennessee. These things demonstrate that the cause of the Union is advancing steadily and certainly southward. Since your adjournment, Lieutenant General Scott has retired from the bead of the amy. During his long life, the nation has not been inmindful of his merit; yet. on calling to m.nd bow faithfully, ablv, ana brilliantly he has served his country, from a time tar back io our history, when few of the now living had been born, and thenceforward continually, I cannot but think we are still his debtors I submit, therefore, for your consideration, what further mark of recognition Is due to him, and to our* selves, as a grateful people W ith the retirement of Gen. Scott came the executive duty of appointing, in his stead, a General-in-Chief of the army. It is a fortunate clr cumstance that neither in council nor country was there, so far as 1 know, any difference of opinion as to the proper peraon to be selected. The retiring chief repeatedly expressed his judgment in favor of Gen McClellan for the position; and In this the nation seemed to give a unanimous concurrence. The designation of General McClelian Is, therefore, In considerable degree, the celeetion of the country, as well as of the Executive; and hence there is better reason to hope there will be given htm, the confidence, and cordial support thus, by fair implication, promised, and without which, he cannot, with su full efficiency, serve the country. 't has been said that one bad general is better tb in two good ones; and the saying is true, if taken to mean 110 more than that an army is better directed by a single mind, though inferior, than by two superior ones, at variance, and crow-purposes with each other. And the same In true, in all joint operations wherein those engaged, c?* have none but a common end in view, and can differ only as to the choicc of means. In a storm at sea. no one ou board earn wish the ship t? sink; and yet, net unfrequently, all go dnwu together, hccausc too many will direct, and no slugle mind can be allowed to control. It rontinues to develop that the Insurrection is largely, if not exclusively, a war upon the first pilnclple of popular government?the rights of the people, Couclusi ve evidence of this Is found In the most grave and maturelyconsidered put-'le documents, as well as in the geueral tone of tue Insurgents, lu those documents we find the abridgment of the exlstiug right of suffrage, aud the deuial to the people of all light to participate In the selection of public officers, except the ; legislative, bodly advocated, with labored argu- I meats to prove that large control of the people in government, Is the www of all political evil. | Monarchy itself Is wmllniii hinted at ua possible refuge from tli# p>? the people I n my present p sttlaa, I mild scarcely be justifled were I to nmM r*%tnu a warning voice against this approach of returning despotism. It is not needed, nor flttlng here, that a general argument should be made in fav*r of popular Institutions; but there Is one point, with ita connections, nut so hackneyed as most others, to which 1 ask a brief atteutlon. It is the effort to place capital on an equal footing with, if not above labor, in the structure of goven.ment. It is asiumrd that labor Is available only In connection with capital; that nobody labors unless somebody else, owning capital, somehow by tbe use of it,'induces him to labor This assumed, it is next considered whether it Is best that capital shall hire laboiers, and thus induce them to work by tbeir own consent, or buy tbcm. and drive them lo It without their content. Having proceeded so far, it ix naturally concluded that all laborer* are either hirtd laborers, or what we call slave*. And further, it la assumed that whoever is once a hired laborer, la fixed In that condition for life. Now, there la no such relation between capital and labor M assumed, nor la there any such thing as a free man being fixed for life In the condition of a hired laborer. Both then assumptions are false, and all Inferences from them are groundless. - Labor Is prior to, and Independent of, capital. Cspital la only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed If labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration Capital haa its rlgnta, whi<-h are as worthy of protection as any other rights Nor is it denied that there la, and probably always will be, a relation between labor and capital, producing mutual benefits. The error ie in assuming that the whole labor of oosnasanity exists within that relation. A few men own capital, and that few avoid labor themselves, and, with their capital, him or boy soother few to labor for them. A large majority belong te neither el Ms neither work for others, nor ne*? others working for them. In most of the Southern fates, a majority of > the whole people of all colors, are nnltker elnvee nor master*; while In tbm Northern, a largo ma' jerlty nre neither hirer* aer hired Men with their famlllse?wives, sons and daughters?work for themselves, on their fhnaa, la (Mir houses, and la tboir itop, taking IW Wkoie product to and aaktng no ftwi m capital em tbc on hand, nor of hi rod laborrra or nUvaa oa tbo other It it not forgotten that a eoaaiderabto number of perooaa naiajfW tboir own hWr with capital?that la, they labor with their an handa. and ateo bay or hire ?there to laher for thraa, but thta la only a mixed, aad not a dtattnet clnaa No principle atated la dlaturbed by the eatoasee of thin mixed claaa. again: aa baa alrendv been aald, there la not. of neceoaity, anyauch thing aa thafrvr blied laborer being fixed to that condition for lift Many Independent men everywhere In throe 9tatoa. a lew yeara back la their Uvea, were hired laborer* The prudent, penallena oeglnner In the world, laborn dr* wagea awhile, aavea a aorplua with which <o bay too la or laad for hi mar If, than labor* on hla own account another white, aad at length hire* another new beginner to help him.
