Ft-Uoic-Citizens of ike i Union as a State, and I rely upon the and Hotue of (cordial co-operaiion jf the British Gov- l regret that 1 cannot on this occasion ernment to effect that object. congratulate you that the putt year has There is every to believe that been one of unalloyed prosperity. The ravages of fire and disease have pain- fully afilicled otherwise flourishing por- tions of our country: and tassmentb yet derange the trade of many of our cities. But, notwithstanding these adverse circumstances, that gen- eral prosperity which has heen hereto- fore so bount'fully bestowed upon us by the Author of all good, still continues to call for gratitudo. Espe- cially have we reason to rejoice in the tea indu disturbance! like those which lately ag- itated the neighboring British Provinces will not again prove the sources of bor- der or interpose obstacles in the continuance of that good under- standing whtch it is the mutual interest of Great Britain ami the United States to preserve and maintain. Within the Provinces themselves tran- quility 13 restored, and on our frontier that misguided what waa sympathy be in favor of recompensed well directea industry, and given to it that sure reward which is vainly sought in speculations. I cannot indeed view without peculiar satisfaction, the evidences afforded by the past season of the benefits that spring from the steady devotion of the hus- bandman to his honorable pursuit No means of individual comfort is more cer- tain, and no eourceof national prosperi- ty is so sure. Nothing can compensate n people for a dependence upon others for the bread they eat; and that cheer- ful abundance on which the happiness of every one so much dspends, is to be looked for nowhere with such sure reli- mice as in the industry of the agricultur- ist and the bounties of the earth. With foreign countries, our relations exhibit the same favorable aspect which was presented in my last annual mes- sage, and aiford continual proof of the wisdom of the pacific, just, and forbear- ing policy adopted by the first Adminis- tration of the Federal Government, and pursued by its successors. The extra- ordinary powers vested in me by an act of Congress, for the defence of the country m an emergency, considered so far probable as to require that tho Exec- utive should possess ample means to meet it, have not been exeried. They have, therefore, been attended with no other result than to increase, by the con- fidence thus proposed in me, my obli- gations to maintain, with religious ex- actness, the cardinal principles that gov- ern our intercourse with other nations. Happilv, in our ponding questions with Great Britain, out of which this unusual grant of authority arose, nothing has occurred to require its exertion and as it is about to return to the Legislature, I trust that no future necessity may call for its exercise by them, or its delega-- lion to another department of thu Gov- ernment. For the settlement of our Northeast- ern boundary the proposition promised by Great Britain for a commission of exploration and survey, has been re- ceived, and a counter project, including also a provision for the certain and final adjustment of the limits in dispute, is now before tho British Government for its consideration, delicate state of proper respect for the natural impatience of the State of Maine, not less than a conviction that tho negotiation has been already protracted longer than is pru- dent on the part of either Government, have led me to believe that the present favorable moment should on no account be suffered to pass without putting the question forever at rest. I feel confident that the Government of her IJritannic Majesty will take the same view of this subject, as 1 am persuaded it is govern- ed by desires equally strong am! sincere for the amicable termination of tho con- troversy. To tho intrinsic difficulties of ques- tions of boundary lines, especially tho-e described in regions unoccupied, and but partially known, ieuci be added in our country the embarrassment arising out of our Consititution, by which the General Government is rnado the or- gan of negotiating and deciding upon the particular interests of the States on whose frontiers these lines are to be traced. To avoid another controversy in which a State Government might rightfully claim to have her wishes con- sulted, previously to the conclusion of conventional arrangements concerning her rights of jurisdiction or territory, I have thought it necessary lo call the at- tention of ihe Government of Great Britain to another portion ol'onr conter- minous dominion, of winch the division Mill remain-, to be adjusted. I to the line from the entrance of Ivike Su- ent A regard to the this question, and n which in some instances misled a few of our more inexperienced citizens, subsided into a rational conviction strong- ly opposed to all intermeddling with the internal afiHirs of our neighbors. Ttie people of the U. S. feel, as it is hoped they always will, a warm solicitude for the success of all who are sincerely en- deavoring to improve the political condi- tion of mankind. This generous feel- ing they cherish towards the most dis- tant nations and it was natural, there- fore, that it should be awakened with more than common warmth in behalf of their immediate neighbors. But it does not belong to their character, as a com- munity, to seek the gratification of those feelings in acts which violate their duty as citizens, endanger the peace of their countrv. and tend to bring upon it the stain of a violated faith towards foreign nations. If, zealous to confer benefits on others, they appear for a moment to lose sight of the permanent obligations imposed upon thorn as citizens, they are seldom long misled. From all the information I receive, confirmed extent by personal observation, I am satisfied that no one can now hope to en- gage in such enterprises without en- countering public indignation, in addi- tion to the several penalties of the law. Recent information also leads me to hope that the emigrants from her Majes- ty's Provinces, who have sought refuge within our boundaries, are disposed to become peaceable residents, and to ab- stain from all attempts to endanger the peacB of that country which has offered them an asylum. On a review of the occurrences on both sides of the line, it is satisfactory to reflect, that in almost every complaint against our country, the offunce may be traced to emigrants from the Provinces who have sought refuge here. In the few instances in which they were aided by citizens of the U. IS., the acts of these misguided men were not only in direct contravention of the Kws and well known wishes of their own Government, but mot with the decided disapprobation of the people of the U. S. I regret to state the appearance of a different spirit among her Majesty's sub- jects in the Canadns. Tho sentiments of hostility to our people and institutions, which have been so frequently ed there, and the disregard of our rights which have been manifested on some occasions, have, I arn sorry to say, been applauded and encouraged by the peo- ple, and even by somo of tho subordi- nate local authorities, of the The chief officers in Canada fortunately have not entertained the and have probably prevented excesses that must have been fatal to the peace of the twn countries. I look forward anxiously to a period when all the transactions which have grown out nf this condition of our n and which have been made the subjects of complaint and remonstrance bv two Governments respectively, shall bo fully examined, and the proper salisfaf- tion given where it is due from either.sidc. Nothing has occurred to disturb In? harmony of our intercourse! witli Aus- tria, Belgium, Denmark, France, [Na- ples, Portugal, Prussia. Kussm, or Swe- den. The internal stile nf Spain has sensibly improved, nnd a well grounded hope exists that the return of peace will restore to the people of that country e the nil its obligations The Government the stntisfaeiinn to their former prosperity, and Government to fulfil at home and abroad, of Portugal, I have state, has paid in full the and I'ist insulmentduo to ourcitiy. for the claims embraced in the settlement mado with it on the Hd of March. 1 lay before you treaties negotiated wuh the Kings of Sardinia nerior to the most northwestern point of nnd nf th" Netherlands, the ratifications the Luke of the VVoodn, stipulations for of which have exchanged since tin- the settlement of which nre to b- found j adjournment of Tli'j liberal in the seven'.h article of the treaty of'principles of thcs" treaties will recrtm- Ghent- Th" commissioners appointed lo vour approbation.
