d fain First n&J iers, have already been es 1 estimate of military ap 't,669. NAVV. •art of tie Secretary of naval force at this tunc con on tired and seventy-eight vessels, , with two thousand three hundred and nfty-oue guns. Of these, one hundred aud fii t en vessels, carrying one thousand aud twi n* t/-nine guns, are in eomiiii.-siou, distributed i hieiiy among seven squadrons. The number «.f men in the service is thirteen thousand six hundred. Great activity aud vigilance have been displayed by all the squadrons, and their movements have been judiciously aud efficient ly arranged in such manner as would best pro mote American commerce, and protect tlie "i ights and interests of our countrymen abroad. The vessels unemployed are undergoing re pairs, or are laid up until tlieir services may be required. Most of the iron-clad fleet is at League Island, iu the vicinity of Philadel phia*,a place which until decisive action should Ik taken by Congress, was selected by the *See votary of the Wavy as tnc most eligible local ion for that class ot vessels. It is important that u suitable public station should be provided for tue iron-clad fleet. It is inteuded that these vessels shall he in proper condition for any emergency, and it is desirable that the hill ac cepting La ague Island for Naval purposes, which passed the House of Kepvescntatives at its l ist session, should receive final action at an early period, in order that there may be a suitable public station for this class of vessels, as a navy-yard of area sufficient for the wants ol the Delaware river. The Naval Pension Hind amounts to $11,750,000, haring been in creased $2,750 D00 during the year. The ex penditures of the Department for the fiscal year ending 30th June last Were $43,324,520, and the estimates for the coming year amount to$23,508,430. Attention is invited to the con dition of our m amco, and the importance of legislative measures for tlieir relief and im provement. The suggestions in behalf of this deserving class of our fellow-citizens are earn estly recommended to the favorable attention ot Congress. THK POSTAL SKBVICK. The report of the Postmaster Ceneral pre sents a most satisfactory condition of the post al service, and submits recommendations which deserve the consideration of Cougress. The revenues of the Department for the year end ing June 30, I860, were $14,380,986, and the ex penditures $15,352,079, showing an excess of the latter of $905,093. In an ieipation oi this deficiency, however, a special appropriation was made by Cougress in the act approved J il ly 28,1866. Including the standing appropria tion of $700,000 lor free mail matter, as a legiti mate portion of the revenues yet remaining unexpended, the actual deficiency for the past year is only $265,093—a sum within $51,141 of the amount estimated iu the annual report of 1864. The decrease of revenue compared with the previous year was one and one-fitbh per cent., and tho increase oi expenditures, owing principally to the enlargement of the mail ser vice at the South, was twelve per cent. Oil the 30th of June last there were in operation six thousand nine hundred and thirty mail routes, with an aggregate length of one hundred and eighty thousand nine hundred and twenty-one miles, an aggregate annual transportation of seventy-one million eight hundred and thirty seven thousand nine hundred and fourteen miles, and an aggregate annual cost, including all expenditures, of $8,410,184. The length of railroad r utes is thirty-two thousand and ninety-two miles, and the annual transporta tion thirty million six hundred and nine thou sand four hundred and sixty-seven miles. The length of steamboat routes is fourteen thou sand three hundred and forty-six miles, and the annual transportation three million four hun dred and eleven thousand nine hundred and sixcy-iwu nines. xue uiausei vice is rapidly in creasing throughout the whole country, and its steady extension in the Southern States in dicates their constantly improving condition. The growing importance of the foreign service also merits attention. The Post Office De partment of Great Britain and our own have agreed upon a preliminary basis for a new Postal Convention, which it is believed will prove eminently beneficial to the commercial interests of the United States, inasmuch as it contemplates a reduction of the international letter postage to one half the existing rates: a reduction of postage with other countries to and from which correspondence is transmitted in the British mail or in closed mails throughout the Uniti-d Kingdom; the establishment of uniform aud reasonable charges for the sea and territorial transit of correspondence in closed mails; and an allowance to each Post Office Department ot the right to use all mail com m unications es talilished under the authority of the other for the dispatch of correspondence, either in open or closed mails, on the same terms as those ap plicable to the inhabitants of the country pro viding- the means of transportation. THE PUBLIC LANDS. The report of the Secretary of the Interior exhibits the condition oi those brandies of the public Service which are committed to his su pervision. During the last fiscal year, four Million six hundred and twenty-nine thousand three huudred and twelve acres of public land were disposed of, one million eight hundred and ninety-two thousand five hundred and six teen acres of which were entered under the Homestead act, The policy originally adopted relative to the public lauds has undergone es sential modifications. Immediate revenue, and nit their rapid settlement, was the cardi nal feature ot our laud system Long expert dice and oarnest discussion have resulted in the conviction that the early development of our agricultural resources, aud the diffusion ot an energetic population over our vast territory, are objects of far greater importance to the na tional growth and prosperity than the proceeds oi the sale of the land to the highest bidder in the open market. The pre-emption laws con fer upon the pioneer wiio complies with the terms they impose the privilege of purchasing a limited portion of “unoffered lauds” at the minimum price. The homestead enactments relieve the settler from the payment of pur chase money, and secure him a permanent home upon the condition of a residence for a term of years. This liberal policy invites emi gration from the old, and from the more crowd ed portions of the new' Wot-ld. Its propitious results are undoubted, and will be more signal ly manifested when time shall have given to it a wider development. * Congress lias made liberal grants of public laud to corporations, in aid of the construction of railroads aud other internal improvements. Bliould this polic-y hereafter prevail, more strin gent provisions will be required to secure a taitbful application oi the fund. The title to the lands should not pass, liy patent or other wise, but remain in the Government and sub ject to its control uiitil some portion of the road has been actually built. 1’ortions of them might then, from time to time, be conveyed to the corporation, but never in a greater ratio to the whole quantity embraced by the grant than the completed parts bear to the entire length of the projected improvements. This re striction would iiot operate to the prejudice of auy undertaking conceived in good faith and executed with reasonable energy, as it is the settled practice to withdraw from market the lands falling within the operation oi such grants, aud thus to exclude the inception of a subsequent adverse right. A breach of the conditions which Congress may deem proper to impose should work a forfeiture of claim to the lands so withdrawn but unconveyed, and of title to the lands conveyed which remain un sold. THE PACIFIC ItAILRtrAD. Ope.ratioiis on the several lines of the Paci fic iiailroad have lieen prosecuted with unex ampled vigor and success. .Should no unfore seen causes of delay occur, it is confidently an ticipated that this great thoroughfare will be completed before the expiration of the period designated by Congress. THE PENSION LIST. During tho last fiscal year tlie amount paid to pensioners, including the expenses of dis bursement, was thirteen million four hundred and tifty-ninc thousand nine hundred ninety six dollars; and fifty thousand one hundred and seventy-seven names were added to the pension rolls. The entire number of pensioners, June 30,1866, was one hundred and twenty-six thous and seven hundred and twenty-two. This fact furnishes melancholy and striking proof of the sacrifices made to vindicate the constitutional authority of the Federal Government, and to maintain inviolate the integrity of the Union. They impose upon us corresponding obligations. It is estimated that thirty-three million dollars will he required to meet the exigencies of this blanch of the service during the next fiscal year. THE INDIAN BUREAU. Treaties have been concluded with the In dians who, enticed into armed opposition to our Government at the outbreak of the rebel lion, have unconditionally submitted to our au thority, and manifested an earnest desire for a renewal of friendly relations. THE PATENT OFFICE. During the year ending September 30, 1866, eight thousand seven hundred and sixteen pa tents tor useful inventions and designs were is sued, and at that date the balance in the Treas ury to the credit of the Patent fund was two hundred and twenty-eight thousand two hun dred and ninety-seven dollars. THE MISSISSIPPI LEVEES. As a subject upon which depends an im mense amount of the production and commerce of the country, 1 recommend to Congress such legislation as may be necessary for the pres ervation of the levees of the Mississippi river. It is a matter of national importance that ear ly steps should be taken not only to add to the efficiency of these barriers against destructive inundations,but lor the removal ot all obstruc tions to the free and safe navigation of that great channel of trade and commerce. REPRESENTATION FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUM BIA. The District of Columbia, under existing laws, is not entitled to that representation in the National Councils, which, irom our earliest history, has been uniformly accorded to each Territory established from time to time within our limits. It maintains peculiar relations to Congress, to whom the Constitution has grant ed the power ot exercising exclusive legisla tion over the seat ol government. Our l'ellow citixeus, residing in the District, whose inter ests are thus confided to the special guardian ship of Congress, exceed in number the popu lation of several of onr Territories, and no just riason is perceived why a delegate of their choice should not be admitted to a seat in the House ot Representatives. No mode seems so appropriate ami etfcctttal ol •Milling .men- t‘> make known their peculiar condition ana | wants, and ot' securing the local legislation i adapted to them. 1 therefor- recommend the passage of a law authorizing the electors of the District of Columbia to choose a delegate, to he allowed the same rights and privileges as a del e" lie representing a Territory. Ike Increasing enterprise ami rapid pi ogress of improvement in the District are highly gratifying, and 1 trust that the efforts ol the municipal authori ties to promote (lie prosperity of the national metropolis will receive the efficient and gener ous co-operation of Congress. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE. The report of the Commissioner of Agricul ture reviews the operations of his Department during the past year, and a3ks the aid id Con gress in it3 efforts to encourage those States which, scourged by war, are now earnestly en gaged in the reorganization of domestic indus try. FOREIGN UELATIONH. It is a subject of congratulation that no for eign combinations against our domestic peace and safety,or our legitimate influence among the nations, have been formed or attempted.— While sentiments of reconciliation, loyal.y, and patriotism have increased at home, a more just consideration of onr national character and rights has been manifested by foreign na tions. The entire success of the Atlantic Telegraph between the coast of Ireland and the Province ol Newfoundland, is an achievement which has been justly celebrated in both hemispheres as the opening ofau era in the progress of civ ilization. There is reason to expect that equal success will attend, and even greater results follow, the enterprise for connecting the two Continents through the Pacific Ocean by the projected line of telegraph between Kams chatka and the Russian possessions in Amer ica. The resolution of Congress protesting against pardons by foreign Governments of persons convicted of iulamous offences, on condition of emigration to our country, lias been communi cated to the States with which we maintain in tercourse, and the practice, so justly the sub ject of complaint on our part, has not been re newed. The congra tulations of Congress to the Em peror of Russia, upon his escape from attempt ed assassination, have been presented to that humane and enlightened ruler, and received by him with expressions of grateful appreciation. The Executive, warned of an attempt by Spaniah-Ameriran adventurers to induce the emigration of treed men of the United States to a foreign country, protested against the project as one which, if consummated, would reduce them to a bondage even more oppres sive than that lrom which they have just been relieved. Assurance has been received from the Government of the State in which the plan was matured, that the proceeding will meet neither its encouragement nor its approval.— It is a question worthy of your consideration, whether our laws upon this subject are ade quate to the prevention or punishment of the crime thus meditated. THE FBENCH-MEX1CAN UlBHOciUO. iu the month of April last, as Congress is aware, a friendly arrangement was made • e tween the Emperor of Prance and the President of the U nited States tor the withdrawal from Mexico of the French expeditionary military forces. This withdrawal was to be effected in three detachments, the first of which, it was un derstood,would leave Mexico iu November, now past, the second in March next, and the third and last |in November, 1867. Immediately up on the completion ofthe evacuation, the French Government was to assume the same attitude of non-intervention, in regard to Mexico, as is held by the Government of the United States. Repeated assurances have been given by the Emperor, since that agreement, that he would complete the promised evacuation within the period mentioned, or sooner. It was reasonably expected that the proceed ings thus contemp ated would produce a crisis of great political interest in the Republic of Mexico. The newly-appointed Minister of the United States, Mr. Campbell, was therefore sent forward, on the 9th day of November last, to assume his proper functions as Minister Plenipotentiary of the United States to that Republic. It was also thought expedient that he should be attended in the vicinity of Mexi co by the Lieutenant General of the Army of the United States, with the view of obtaining ! such information as might be important to de termine the course to be pursued by the United States in re-establishing and maintaining nec essary axd proper intercourse with the Repub lic ofMexico. Deeply interested in the cause ot liberty and humanity, it seemed an obvious duty on our part to exercise whatever influ ence we possessed for the rcstor tion and per manent establishment in that country ot a do mestic and republican form of Government. Such was the condition of affairs in regard ; to Mexico, when, on the 22d of November last, I official information was received from Paris that the Emperor of France had some time before decided not to withdraw a detachment of his forces in the month ol November past, according to engagement, but that this decis ion waR made with the purpose of withdraw ing the whole of those forces in the ensuing spring. Of this determination, however, the j United States had not received any notice or | intimation; and, so soon as the information i was received by the Government, care was taken to make known its dissent to the Empe ror of France. I cannot forego the hope that France will reconsider the subject, and adopt some resolu tion in regard to the evacuation of Mexico which will conform as nearly as practicable i with the existing engagement, and thus meet ! the just expectations ofthe United States.— j The papers relating to the subject will be laid before you. It is believed that, with the evac uation ot Mexico by the expeditionary forces, j no subject for serious differences between I France and the United States would remain. The expressions of the Emperor and people of France warrant a hope that the traditionary friendship between the two countries might iu that case he renewed and permanently re stored. A claim of a citizen of the United States for indemnity for spoilatious committed on the high seas by the French authorities, in the ex j ercise ot a belligerent power against Mexico, j has been met by the Government of France ■ with a proposition to defer settlement until a ; mutual convention for the adjustment of all j claims of citizens and subjects of both couu j tries, ari-ing out of the recent wars on this I Continent, shall be agreed upon by the two countries. The suggestion is not deemed un reasonable, but it belongs to Congress to direct the manner in which claims for indemnity by foreigners, as well as by citizens of the United States, arising out of the late civil war, shall be adjudicated and determined. 1 have no doubt that the subject of all such claims will engage your atteutiou at a convenient and proper time. CHEAT BRITAIN. It is a matter of regret that no considerable advance has been made towards an adjustment ol the differences between the United States and Great Britain, arising out of the depreda tions upon our national commerce and other trespasses committed during our civil war by British subjects, in violation' of international law and treaty obligations. The delay, howev er, may be believed to have resulted in no small degree from the domestic situation of Great Britain. An entire change of ministry occur red in that country during the last session of Parliament. The attention of the new minis try was called to the subject at an early day, and there is some reason to expect that it will now be considered in a becoming and friendly spirit. The importance of an early disposition of the tpieHtion cannot be exaggerated. What ever might be the wishes ot the two Govern ments, it is manifest that good-will and friend ship between the two countries cannot be es tablished until a reciprocity, in the practice of good faith and neutrality, shall be restored be tween the respective nations. THE FENIANS. On the tith of June last, in violation of our neutrality laws, a military expedition and en terprise against the British North American Colonies was projected and attempted to be carried on within the territory and jurisdiction of the United States. In obedience to the ob ligation imposed upon the Executive by the Constitution, to see that the laws are faithfully executed, all citizens were warned, by procla mation, against taking part in or aiding sueh unlawful proceedings, and the proper civil, mil itary and naval officers were directed to take all necessary measures for the enforcement of the law3. The expedition tailed,hut it basnotbeen without its painful consequences. Some of our citizens who, it was alleged, were engaged in the expedition, were captured, ami have been brought to trial as tor a capital offence, in the Province of Canada. Judgment and sentence of death have been pronounced against some, while others have been acquitted. Fully be lievinj in tlic maxim of government, that se verity of civil punishment of misguided per sons who have engaged in revolutionary at tempts which have disastrously failed, is un souud and unwise, such representations have been made to the British Government, in be half of the convicted persons, as, being sus tained by an enlightened and humane judg ment, will, it is hoped, induce in their cases, an exercise of clemency, and a judicious am nesty to all who were engaged' in the move ment. Counsel has been employed by the Government to defend citizens of the United States on trial fur capital offences in Canada; and a discontinuance of the proseontions which were instituted in the Courts of the United States against those who took part in the expe dition, has been directed. I..re8?r<led the expedition as not only political in its nature, but as also in a great measure foreign from the United States in its causes, character and objects. The attempt was understood to Ik; made in sympathy with an insurgent party in Ireland, and, by striking at a Bntisb Province on this Continent was designed to aid in obtaining redress fur politi cal grievances which, it was assumed, thepoo ple of Ireland had suffered at the hands of the British Government during a period of seve ral centuries. The persons engaged in it were chiefly nativosof that country, some of whom had, while others had not, become citizens of the Uniled States under our general laws of naturalization. Complaints of misgovernment in Ireland continually engage the attention of tlic British nation, and so great an agitation is now prevailing in Ireland that the British Government ha\e deemed it noccssAry to sns* pend the writ of habca* corpun in that country Those circumstances must necessarily modify the opinion which we might otherwise have en tertained in regard to an expedition expressly prohibited by our neutrality laws. So long as those laws remain upon our statute-books, they should be faithfully executed, and if they ope rate harshly, unjustly, or oppressively, (Jou press atone can apply the remedy, by thetr mod ification or repeal, GREECE. Political and commercial interests of the Umted States are not unlikely to be affected In some degiee by events which are transpiring iu the eastern regions of Europe, and the time seems to have come when our Government ought to have a proper diplomatic representa tion in Greece. NATURALIZATION. This Government has claimed fur ail persons not convicted, or accused, or suspected of crime, an absolute political right of self expa triation, and a choice ot new national allegi ance. Most of the European States have dis sented from this principle, and have claimed a right to hold such of their subjects as have im migrated to and been naturalized in the Uni ted States, and afterwards returned on tran sient visits to their native countries, to the per formance of military service in like manner as resident subjects. Complaints arising from the claim in this respect made by foreign States, have heretofore been matters of con troversy between the United States and some of the European Powers, and the irritation con sequent upon the failure to settle this question increased during the war in which Prussia, Italy, and Austria were recently engaged. While Great Britain has never acknowledged the right of expatriation, she lias not practical ly insisted upon it. France has been equally turoeanug; ana Prussia nas proposca a com promise, which, although evincing increased liberality, has not been accepted by the Unitod States. Peace is now prevailing everywhere in Europe, and the present seems to he a favor able time for an assertion by Congress ol the principle, so long maintained by the Executive Department, that naturalization by omrState hilly exempts the native-born subjectin' any other State from the performance of military service under any foreign Government, so long as he does not voluntarily renounce its rights and benefits. In the performance of a duty imposed upon me by the Constitution, I have thus su omitted to the Representatives of the States and the People such information of our domestic and foreign affairs as the public interests seem to require. Our Government is now undergoing its most trying ordeal, and my earnest prayer is, that the peril may be successfully and final ly passed, without impairing its original strength and symmetry. The interests of the nation are best to he promoted by the revival of fraternal relations, the complete obliteration of our past differences, and the inauguration of all the pursuits of peace. Directing our ef forts to the early accomplishment ot these great end.-, let us endeavor to preserve harmony be t« een the co-ordinate Departments of the Gov ernment, that each-in its proper sphere may cordially co-operate with the other in securing the maintenance of the Constitution, the pres ervation of the Union, and the perpetuity of our free institutions. ANDREW JOHNSON. Washington, December 3,18fi6. The Captobe op Kenniston and Escape of Bbainabd.—Mr. Wight, the postmaster at Gorham, N. H., has furnished the Star with the particulars of the arrest of Kenniston and Braiuard, the rogues who broke jail here late ly. He says: East Saturday afternoon two young men came into my office looking very tired and rough. One of them was so foot-sore that he could not keep his shoes on. Their looks and talk excited my suspicions at once, aud I sent for John E. Willis, the constable, who had pre - viously given me a description of the men. He came aud at once arrested them and took them to the Gorham House and confined them in a room on the second floor. Kenniston was put in irons, but Brainard’s wrists were so large that no irons that could fll him could be found in town. Both prisoners remained quiet until about 10 o’clock Sunday qjght, when Willis stepped out and asked a man in the next room to come aud help confine Braiuard. As he stepped out Braiuard went to the window on pretence of letting in some air, and was out of the window and on the run before thewguards could get to the window. Officers are on the Canada road in search of him; but ou Monday evening he called at Mr. Hubbard’s in Shel burne, about six miles below bere, and got some supper, and asked Mr. H. to take him to Ver mont in the night. The last seen of him ho was going towards Maine. Kenniston was de livered to officer Pennell on Tuesday morning and taken to Portland. THE MARKETS. ’TELEGRAPHIC REPORTS. New York Market.
