The Colorado Veto Message. A brief synopsis of the veto message receiv ed by telegraph was published in the Press yes terday. We give below the full text of the document which appears as a special dispatch in the Boston Advertiser: To the Senate of the United States:— I return to the Senate, in which House it originated, a bill entitled “All act to admit the Htatc of Colnrudreiato the Union,” to which I cannot consistently with my sense of duty give my approval, with the exception of an addition al section containing now provisions. It is sub stantially tlie same as the bill of a similar title passed by Congress during tlie last session, submitted to tlie President for his approval and returned witli the objections contained in a message hearing date tile loth of Way last, amt yet awaiting the reconsideration of the Senate. A second hill, having in view the same pur pose, lias now passed both Houses ol Congress and been presented for my signature. Having again carefully considered the subject, 1 have been unable to perceive any reason for chang ing the opinions which have already been communicated to Congress. I liud, on tlie Con trary, that there are many objections to the proposed legislation, oi which 1 was not at that tint1 aware; and that while several of those which 1 then assigned have in tlie interval gained in strength, yet others have been creat ed l>y the altered character of tlie measure now submitted. The constitution under which this state government is proposed to be formed, very properly contains a provision, that all laws in force at the time of its adoption and tlie admission of the State into the Union, shall Continue as if the constitution had not been adopted. Among these laws is one absolutely prohibiting negroes and mulattoes from the right to sit as jurors. This bill was vetoed hy the Governor ot the Territory, who held that hy the laws ol the United States, negroes and mulatto is are citizens and subject to the du ties as Well as entitled to the rights ot citizen ship. The hill was however passed, the objec tions of the Governor to the contrary notwith standing, and is now a law ol the Territory; yet in tlie bill now before mo by which it is pro posed to admit tlie Territory as a State, it is provided that there shall be no denial ot the elective franchise or any other rights to any person hy reason of race or color, excepting Indians not taxed. Hie incongruity thus ex hibited between the legislation of Congress and that of the Territory, taken in connection with the protest against the admission of the State, hereinafter referred to, would seem clear ly to indicate the impolicy and injustice of the proposed enactment.. It might indeed be a subject of grave inquiry, and doubtless will re sult in such inquiry if this bill becomes a law, whether it does not attempt to exercise a pow er not conferred upon Congress by the Feder al Coustituti .n, as that instrument simply de clares that Congress may admit new States in to the Union. It nowhere says that Congress ni iy make new States for the purpose of ad mitting them into the Union, or for any other purpose, and yet this bill is as clear an at tempt to make the institutions as any iu which tlie people themselves could engage. In view of this action of Congress, the House of Repre sentatives of the Territory has earnestly pro tested against being forced into the Union with out first having the question submitted to the people. Nothing could be more reasonable than the position which they thus assume, and it certainly cannot be the purpose of Congress to force upon a community, against their will, a government whieh they do not believe them selves capable jf sustaining. Tho following is a copy of the protest allud ed to, as officially transmitted to me:— "Whereas it is announced in the public prints, that it is the intention of Congress to admit Colorado as a State into the Union, tl erofore resolved by the House of Representa tives of this Territory, that representing as we do the last and only legal expression of pn ilie opinion on this question, wc earnestly protest against the passage of a law admitting the State without first having the question submitted to a vote ol the people, tor the reasons,—first, that we have a right to a voice in the selection of the chaiacter of our government, second that w ■ h ive not a sufficient population to support the expense of a State government. For these reasons wc trust that Congress will not force upon us a government against our will.” Upon information which I considered relia ble, 1 assumed in my message of the 15th of May last, that the population of Colorado was not more than 30,000, and expressed the opin ion that this number was entirely too small, either to assume the responsibility or to eqjoy the privilege of a State. It appears that previ ous to that time the legislature, with a view to ascertain the exact condition of the Territory, liad pa sed a law au'liorizing a census uf the population to be taken. The law made it the duly ol the assessors iu the several counties to take the census in connection with the annual assessments, and in order to secure a correct enumeration of the population, allowed them a liberal compensation for the service by paying them lor every name returned, anil added to their previous oath of office an oath to perform llie Hilly mill Dueiity. rrum the accompany ing official report it appears that returns have been received from iiiteen out of the eighteen counties into which the State is divided, and their population amounts in the aggregate to 24.909. The three remaining counties are esti mated to contain 3000 making a population of 27.909. This census was taken in the summer season, when it is claimed that the population is much target than at any other period, as iu the autumn miners in large numbers leave their work and return to the east witli the re sults of their suuimerenterprise. The popula tion, it will be observed, is hut slightly iu ex cess of oue aflhofthc number required as the basis of represeotatiou for a siugle congression al district in any oi the States, lhat number being 127,000. 1 am unable to perceive any good reason for such great disparity in the right of representation, giving as it would to the people of Colorado, not only this vast ad vantage iu the House of Representatives, but an equality in the Senate, where the other States are represented liy millions. With per haps a single exception, no such inequality as this has ever before been attempted.— 1 know tiiat it is claimed that the popula tion of the different States at the time oi their admission lias varied at different periods, and the obvious intent of the Constitution was, that no State should be admitted with a less population than the ratio of the representation at the time of application; and the limitation in the second Beetle-- of the first article oi the Constitution, declaring that ‘‘each State shall have at least one representative,” was mani festly designed to protect the States which originally composed the Union, from betng de prived, in the event or a waning population, of a voice in the popular branch of Congress, and was never intended as a warrant to force a new State into the Union with a representative population far below that which might at the time he required of sister members of the con federacy. ibis hill, iu view of the prohibition of the same section, which declares ‘ that the same number of representatives shall not ex ceed oue for every 10,000,” is at least a viola tion of the spirit it not of the letter of the Con stitution. It is respectfully submitted, that however Con gress, under tne pressure ot circumstances, may have admitted two or three States with less than a representative population at the time, there lias been no instance iu which an application for admission has ever been enter tained, when the population, as officially ascer tained, was below thirty tliousaud. Were there any doubt of this being the true con struction of the Constitution, it would be dis pelled by the early and long-continued prac tice of the federal government. For nearly sixty years after the adoption of the Constitu tion, no State was admitted with a population believed at the time to he less man the current ratio fora representative; and the first instance in which there appears to have been a depart ure from the principle was in 1815 iu the case of Florida, obviously the result of sectional strifo. Wc would no well to regard it as a warning of evil rather than as an example for imitation, and I tliink candid men of all par ties will agree that tne nspiring cause of this wholesome principle of restraint is to be found in a vain attempt to balance those antagonisms which refused to be reconciled except through the bloody .arbitrament of arms. The plain tacts of our history will attest that the groat and leading States admitted since 1845, vis., Iowa, Wisconsin, California, Minnesota and Kansas, including Texas, which was admittep that year, have all come with an ample popula tion tor one representative, and Bonie of them with nearly or quite cnougii for two. To de monstrate the correctness of my views on this question, I subjoin a table containing a list of the States admitted since the adoption of the federal Constitution, with the dates of damis sion. the ratio of representation and tho repre sentative population when admitted, deduced from the United States census tables, the cal culation being made for the period of the de cade corresponding with the date of admis sion :— States.

There can be no reason that I can perceive for the ad mission of Colorado ‘■’lat would not apply with equal force to nearl ^very other Territory now organized, and I submit whether if this hill becomes a law it will be possible to resist the logical conclusion that such Territories as Da cotah Montana and Idaho must be received as btates whenever they present themselves, without regard to the inhabitants they may Ws&sr nr H. mse of Representatives would thus be alb nutted to represent a population scarcely ex ceeding that which iu any other port. !.r.1 option is entitled to but a single SwS Ho lse of Uepreseutatives; while the average f.'.t two senate.s iu the Union as now Constituted is at least two millions ot people It would surely be unjust to all other sections of the Union to enter upon a policy with regard to t ic admission of new States, which might re sult iu conferring such a disproportionate share of influence in the national legislature upon communities which, in pursuance of the wise policy of our fathers should for some years to come be retained under the lettering care and protection of the national goverment. If it is deemed just and expedient now to depart from tile settled policy of thn nation during all its ’ “tory, and to admit all the Territories to the J hts and privileges of States irrespective of 1 ir population or fitness for such government, it s suoiii turn wnctticr it would not be well to de nse such measures as will briug the subject before the country for consideration and decis ion. This would seem to he eminently wise. I. e auso, as has a ready been stated, if it is right to admit Colorado, there i* BO r, ’ n f,.r Ji,., exclusion of the other Territories, it is no an swer to these suggestions that an enabling art was passed, authorizing the people ofColorol„ to take ac.iou on this subject. Sis well known that that act was passed iu consequence ofreu refutations that the population reached, uc cording to some statements, as higlias 80,000, and to none less than 50,000, and was growing with a rapidity that by the time the admission Could be consumated would secure a popula tiou of over a hundred thousand, these rep resentations proved to have been whoUy ialla* cions, and iu addition the people of the Tei ri ! torv, by a deliberate vote, decidedThat they would not assume the responsibility of a State ! government. By that decision they entirely I exhausted all ^power that was col’erred by the | ‘'enabling act, ’ an<l there has beeu no step taken since in ^relation to the admission that I has had the slightest sanotion of warrant of law. The proceeding upon which the present application is based was in the utter absence ot all law m relation to it. There is no evi dence that the votes on the question of the formation 01 a State government bear any relation whatever to the sentiment ol tlie lerritory. The protest of the House of Representatives, previously quoted, is conclu sive evidence to the contrary. Rut if none of these reasons existed against this proposed enactment, the bill itself, besides being uncon stitutional in its provisions in conferring pow er upon a person unknown to the laws and who may never have a legal existence, is so framed us to render its execution almust im possible. It is indeed a question whether it is not in itself a nullity; to say the least it is of exceedingly doubtful propriety to confer tlie power proposed in the hill upon the Govcuor elect - for as by its own terms the constitution is not to take effect until after admission of the State, he in the meantime lias no more authority thau any other private citizen. But even supposing him to be clothed with sufficient authority to convene the legislature, what constitutes the State legislature to which is to be referred the question of the conditions imposed by Congress? Is a new body to be elected and convened by proclamation of the Govenor elect, or is it that body which met more than a year ago under the provisions of tlie State constitution. By reference to the second section ot the schedule and to the eighteenth section of the fourth article of the State constitution it will be seen chat the term oi the members of the House of Representatives, and that of one half of the members of the Senate, expire on the iirst Monday of the present mouth. It is clear that if there were no intrinsic objections to the bill itself in relation to the purooses to be ac complished, this objection would be fatal, as it is apparent that the provisiens of the third sec tion of the bill to admit Colorado have refer ence to a period and a state of facts entirely different from the present; and affairs as they now exist, if carried iDto effect, must lead to confusion. Even if it were settled that the old and not the new body were to act, it would be found impracticable to execute the law,because a considerable number of the members, as 1 am informed, have ceased to be residents of the Territory; and in the sixty days within which the legislature is to be convened after the pas sage of the act, there would not be sufficient time to fill the vacancies by new elections, were (here any authority under which they could lie held. It may not be improper to add that if the proceedings were all regular, and the result to be obtained were desirable, simple justice to the people of the Territory would require a longer period than sixty days within which to obtain action on the conditions proposed by the third section of the bill. There are, as is well known, large portions pf the Territory with which there is and can be no general commu uicatiou, there being several cgunties which from November to May can only bo reached by persons traveling on foot, while with other regions or tne territory, occupied by a large portion of the population, there is very little more freedom of access. Thus if the bill should become a law, it would be impracticable to ob tain any expression of public sentiment in ref erence to its provisions with a view to enlight en the legislature if the old body were called together; and of course equally impracticable to procure the election of a new body. This defect might liaae been remedied by an exten sion of the time and a submission of the ques tion to the people, with a lull opportunity to* enable them to express their sentiments. The admission of a new State has generally been regarded as an epoch iu our history; but after the most careful and onxious inquiry on the subject, I cannot perceive that the propos ed proceeding is in conformity with the policy which, from the origin oi the government, lias uniformly prevailed in ihe admission of new States. 1 therefore return the hill to the Sen ate without my signature. Andrew Johnson. Washington, Jan. 28,1807. The Austria* lUissiea. The correspondence between the State De partment and Mr. Motley, relative to the lat ter's resignation of the Austrian mission, which was called for sometime ago at Mr. Sumner’s instance, was sent to the Senate this afternoon. The Vice-President did not formally lay it be fore that body to-day, and therefore the cor respondents were not allowed to either copy or read the papers. 1 am able, however, to give a summary of their contents. There are but two letters, one from Mr. Seward and one from Mr. Motley, though Mr. Seward’s from a person who is designated as an Ameri can gentleman who is travelling in Europe. It appears that this anonymous individual sent a letter to Mr. Seward, in which ho charged generally, that most of our ministers and chief consuls in Europe are political opponents of the administration, and that many of them are given to public denunciation of the President and Secretary of State. The writer specially mentions Mr. Marsh and Mr. Motley, saying that the latter had spoken ot Mr. Seward as a degraded old man, and had expressed a decid ed preference for English customs and English government, as compared with our own. A copy of this nreoious document Mr. Seward sends to Mr. Motley, and his own letter is only long enough to ask the minister in diplomatic phrase what he lias to say about these charges. Mr. Motley’s reply is of some length. He be gins by expressing his .astonishment that such a letter should be sent to him by the depart ment, and tays his first thought was to content himself witli a fiat denial ot the charges made by Mr. Seward’s informer. He concludes, how ever, to make a mere detailed answer. He does uot stoop to deny the charge that he had spok en disrespectfully of the Secretary or the Pres ident. De meets that relative to liis excessive admiration ot English laws and customs by saying that it cannot be believed^jy any one who Knows him, or has ever read either his historical or philosophical writings. The gen eral charge that he is opposed to the President’s policy, brings from him a statement of his views, that will endear him to every lover of liberty He says he has spoken of both the President and Congress under his own root and among his own friends, and was not aware that a citizen living abroad, even in an official ca pacity, was debarred from holding and express ing views of bis oivu regarding the great ques tions presented by the overthrow of tile rebel lion. He says he thinks we should abolish and forever prohibit all legal and political distinc tions ou account of race or color, and this lie would do by an amendment to the Constitu tion. After such an amendment was adopted, lie would declare a general amnesty to those engaged in the rebellion. He closes bv tender ing liis resignation, without assigning any cause for so doing. It is probable that the country will see sufficient cause in the insult ing letter of Mr. Seward. The correspondence will be made public iu full to-morrow. It is hardly necessary to add that it will not im prove Mr. Cowan’s frail chances for confirma tion.— Washington Dispatch to Boston Adver tiser, 28 th. A Bhute.—The New York papers contain reports of the trial at Albion in that State, of the Reverend Joel Lindsley for manslaughter, in the cruel punishment of his child, a boy of three years, last June. According to liis own confession, about 9 o’clock on *he night ol the boy s death, Lindsley’s wife (who was not the child’s mother) went to correct the child for something it refused to do; sho failed to make him mind, and askod him to do it. Linds ley said lie commenced correcting him with a piece of a shingle ; he whipped and talked to him alternately for two hours and a half; he reasoned with him and tried to make liim mind; at the end of two and a half hours saw a change, stopped whipping him, laid him on a couch and called his wife; she came and said, “ Why, Johnny is dying!" He said he guessed not, and took him off the lounge, and he died in his arms. The post mortem examination of the body showed that many parts of it were great ly discolored by the whipping, and that the soles of the child’s feet had blisters the size of a quarter dollar and that tho blood run from his toes. The whole history of the caso proved it one of the most atrocious on record. The jury found a verdict of guilty. New ■’■blirntions. The “Diamond” Dickens. Messrs. Ticknor & Fields, encouraged by the extraordinary success of their “Diamond Edition” of the poems of Tennyson, have pro jected a similar issue of the complete works of Charles Dickens, which presents a happy com bination of elegance and cheapness, and is certain to prove the most popular edition of tliis writer yet offered. The first volume of this scries, “The Pickwick Papers,” is pub lished. It is elegantly printed and bound, aud contains sixteen original illustrations by Sol. Eytinge, jr., who has bit of some off the im mortal personages of Dickens’s masterpiece more happily than any who have gone before him, unless, indeed, it he Seymour. The sketches of the Fat Hoy, of the Rev. Mr. Stig gins supping with Mrs. Weller, and of Mrs. Bardcll consoled by her friends, are admirably conceived, and greatly enhance one’s enjoy ment of the book. A fine portrait of tbe au thor forms the frontispiece. There are two editions of this work, one plain and one illus trated, but printed alike, on tinted paper, and from the University Press. Botli are very cheap, the plain edition being sold for $1.25, the illustrated for $1.50. The publishers pro pose tnisBueone volume each month until tho edition, comprising twelve or 'hirteen volumes, iscomplcted. “Onr Mutual Friend” will ap pear in February, to be followed by “David CopperSeld” in March. The volumes are sold separately. C. R. Chisholm and Brother, 307 Congress street, and Grand Trunk Depot, have the present issue, “Pickwick,” for sale, and will have the otl.ers as they appear. “Pickwick” is also for sale by Davis Brothers. Northern Lights for February 2 has an interesting article by Mr. Warner on Crete very timely just now, an illustrated paper’ “Something about Plants,” and various other readah'e matter.

Tilden’s Improved Bon-Ton Coffee Pot. —Every iover of good coffee will be glad to learn that a coffee pot has been invented which possesses great advantages over any now in general use. This, in our judgment, is the case with the Bon Ton Coffee Pot. Its construction is quite novel: it is so arranged that the coffee is not deposited at the bottom of the pot as in the usual way, but is put in a perforated cham ber which rests just above the water, the coffee is thus permeated with steam and boiling water, the strength and aroma extracted and retained in the highest state of perfection. It is just the thing for all lovers of good coffee, and wo think worthy to come into general use. It is for sale by C. C. Tolman, Market Square, under Lan caster Hall.

New Hotel.—Monday evening, while the Committee on Public Buildings was in session in the Aldermen’s room, in Market Hall, a stranger, all muffled up to his eyes, entered, and after looking around asked, “Who keeps this hotel?

He finds the route extremely prac ticable. It is a little over ten miles in length, and he estimates its cost at $23,000 per mile.— The legislative committee on Railroads have unanimously agreed to reporta bill granting a charter for the extension, and the Legislature will without doubt ratify it. Thus nothing stands in the way of the building of the road except the want of means, which the directors of the Androscoggin road expect to raise. —We learn from the Bangor "Whig that Mrs. Me, Donald, the woman so severely as saulted in that city last week, died on Mon day of the effects of her injuries. During a period of partial consciousness the unfortunate woman was understood to say that there were three men concerned in the assault. A man living in Hermon, against whom some suspicion had been raised inconsequence of his being seen in the vicinity of the mur der, was arrested, but on examination, he was fully exonerated by the evidence. —The Presque Isle Sunrise recently gave the dimensions of three giant cedars cut in that vicinity—surpassing all the cedars of Lebanon for size. One was 18 feet in circum ference, one 14, and 13—with a clear height of about 50 feet before reaching the limbs.—Four cuts from tho two .smallest, of four feot long, made a cord of shi ngle bolts. —The Bowdoin Students arc to have a boat club, and propose to enter the field of competition with H arvard and Yale. —There are four Pontifical tiaras. One was the gift of Napoleen I. to Pius VII.; if weighs eight pounds avoirdupois, and is worth £10,000 sterling; the second dating from the pontificate of Gregory XVI., and worth only £400; the third presented by the Palatine guard to Pio Nono, and estimated at the value of £000; the fourth, tho grandest and richest of all, being a present made to the Pope in 1854 by Queen Isabella of Spain, and valued at 536,000 francs, or over £21,000 English. It Contains 18,000 diamonds. Political.—The editor of the Salisbury (N. C.) Old North State, now in Washington under the authority of the Legislature and Governor of North Carolina to look after certain inter ests of that State, writes to his paper that he thinks Gen. Grant will be the next Republican candidate for President. He says the General is oue% of the most prudent and cautious of i mankind, a brave aud gallant soldier, and dis posed to do justice to the Southern people, i and he thinks that the people of the South would hail his nomination with delight. The expediency of petitioning the Legisla ture to appoint a city gas inspector was lately discussed in the Boston Common Council, and opposed because there is already a State in spector, whose duties are almost identical with those designed for the new official, Mr. Mc Kay said the Boston gas light company was a bigg er humbug and monopoly thun ever the East Boston ferry company was, anil that for one mouth, when he burned no gas at all iu his house, the company sent him a bill for $1(10, aud for a mouth when he did use it, his hill was $70. —There is no end of gossip about Parepa. It is now denied positively that she has any thought of marrying Carl Rosa, the violinist, as has been stated. Parepa is her maiden name and she is not the widow of an Italian, but of a Canadian, named Cowell, who was an officer in the British army. In the next place she has no daughter, and, finally, her present con certs are not farewell ones, as she has formed an alliance with Brignoli for another tour next spring, not under Mr. Bateman’s manege ment. —According to Spaniards in Paris all Spain desires a revolution, but the country is not unan imous as to what government should be substi tuted for the present one. A large part of the population, and perhaps, the most energetic, continues to be desirous of placing the King of Portugal on the Spanish throue, subject to Portugal being uuited to Spain. Review of the Market FOB TH1VEEK ENDING Jan. 20. 1867. Tlie volume of trade for the past week has been small, in consequence of the snow blockade, and al so an indisposition among dealers to increase their stocks to any great extent during the present uncer tainty of tho tariff and currency bill's hi Congress. Until these questions, so vital to the business inter ests of the community are settled, trade cannot as sume its legitimate basis. Speculators, who care little for tho stability of the market—or for their own, either, as would often appear—may make an occasional flare in tho market, but their proceedings are but evanescent, and they will eventually yield to an established order of trade. In market values there are no changes w orth not ing. Tho Spring trade has not commenced, and for some weeks the amount of business must be small, though it has been greater thiiB far for the month of January than it was during the same month last year. Traders contrive to keep their stocks as light as possible, and yet sufficient to supply the con sumptive demand. Foreign exports and imports are quite light, and, it is stated, the orders sent abroad for merchandise, for the Spring trade, especially in dry goods,aro small in comparison to the imports last Spring. Gold has beon on the downward move during the week. Our last week’s review left it on Tuesday, 22d. at 135|. On Wednesday it dropped down to 1343, and continued at 134@1343 throughout the week. Tues day, 29th,^it opened at 134, and sold up to 134g, at which price it closed. APPLES—Choice -fruit is getting scarce, and prices have advanced to $450^5 00 for the best Bald wins and greenings.

The arisen topmast broke oft at eves of the rigginjj, and every thing above went over the side. All ibis was done by the force of the wind when the ship’s sails were ali furled, except a gno-e winged lower main topsail. Had my ballast not been we l secured the ship never con id have lived through it; as it was she was upon her beam ends wi h six or eight leei ot water in her hold before she righted. The tiller broke short oil at rudder bead, which caused much trouble betbre wc could get the ruder secured and lit a new tiler, made from lower deck hatch beam.
