The following is the President's message transmitting the report of the San Domingo Commissioners: To tltc Semite (tad House of resextatieen: I have the honor to submit here- with lo tho two Houses of Con- gress the report of the Commis- sioners appointed in pursuance of the joint resolution approved January 12th, 1871. It will be ob- served this report more than sus- tains all that I have heretofore said in regard to the productiveness and hcalthfuhehs of San Domingo, the unanimity of the people lor an- nexation to the United Stales, and their poaeuablo chai-auter. It is (hit! to the public and myself that I should here give till the circum- stances which lirst led to the uegolialion of t'.ie treaty for the annexation of the Republic of San Domingo lo the United Slates. When I accepledthe arduous and position which I now hold, I did not dream of instituting any steps tor the acquisition of insular possessions. I believed, however, that our institutions were broad enough to extend over the entire continent as rapidly as other people might desire to bring them- selves under our protection. 1 be- lieve further, that we should not permit any independent govern- ment within tliu limits of North America to pass from a condition of independence to one of owner- ship or protection maile on European power. Soon after my inauguration as President I was wailed upon by an agent of Presi- dent llaex, with a proposition to annex tho Republic ol'Siui Domingo to the Urited States, This gentle- man represented the oapacilyof the island, the desire of the people and their character and habits about as they have been described by tho Commissioners. Ho stated fur- ther, that ing weak iu numbers and poor in purse, they were not capable of developing iheir great resources; that tho uoopio imd not tbc nici'inivc to industry on ac- cunnt ol' tljo hick of proicciion for I heir accumulations, and that if not accepted by the Unilod States, with institutions which they loved above those of any other nation, they would bo compelled to seek pro- tection elsewhere. To those statements I ir.tulc no reply and gave no indication of what I thought of the proposition. In tlie course of time I was waited upon by a second gentleman irom Suti Domingo, who mndethe same representations, and who was re- ceived in like manner. In view of the facts which had been hud before me, and with an earnest desire lo maintain the "Monroe I believed that I would be derelict in my duty if I did not take measures to ascertain the exact wishes of the Government and in- habitants of the Republic of San Domingo in regard to annexation, and communicate thorn to the people of ttic United Status. Under attending circumstances, I ielt thai if I turned a deaf ear to this appeal I might, in future, be justly charged with a flagrant neglect of the public interests and utter disregard of the welfare of a down-trodden race praying for the blessings of a, true and strong Government, and for protection in the enjoyment ot tiie fruits of their own industry. Aci'ordingly, after having ap- pointed a Commissioner to visit the island, I .selected a gentleman in whose capacity, judgment and integrity I had and have yet the most unbounded confidence. lie visited the Island of San Domingo, not to secure or hasten annexation, but unbiased to learn tho facto about tlio governmcnl, the people and the resources of that went as well prepared to make an unfavorable report as a favorable one, if lliis fuels warranted it. Ili.s report fully corroborated the views of the previous Commis sioners, and upon its receipt I toll that a sense of duly and duo regard for our groat National .interests ro- quirccl me lo negotiate a treaty for ihc acquisition of the-Republic of San Domingo. As soon as it became publicly known that such a treaty had been negotiated, tho at tcnlion of the country was oc- cupied with allegations calculated to prejudice the merits of the case, and with those whose duty had connected them with it. Amidst public excitement thus created tlie treaty failed to receive the required two-thirds vote of the Senate, and was rejected, but whether tho action of that body was bused wholly upon the merits of the treaty, or might not have been in some degree influenced such un- founded allegations, could not be known by the people because the debates of the Senate in secret ses- sion are not published. Then a Commission was con- stituted under authority of Con- gress consisting of gentlemen selected with special reference to their high character and capacity for the work entrusted to them, who were instructed to visit the spot and report upon the facts. Other eminent citizens were re- quested to accompany the Commis- sion in order that the people might hnve the 1 eneiit of their views. Student of science and corres- pondents of the press, without re- gard to poli'ical opinion, were in- vited to join the expedition, and ;he number nas limited only by the capacity of the vessel. The more rejection by the Senate of the treaty negotiated by the President, only indicates a clif- I'eronce of opinion, without touch- ing the character or wounding the. pride of cither; but when such re- eclion takes place simultaneously charges openly made ot cor- ruption on the part of tho Presi- dent or those employed by him, the case is Indeed, in such a case, the honor of the nation demands investigation. This lias; been accomplished by the re- port of tho Comuiiasionors here- with transmitted, which fully vin- dicates tlie purity of the molives and action of those who represented United Slates, in the negotia- tion ami now my task is fh.nshod, and with it ends all personal solicitude upon the subject. My duly being done, yours begins. The fui-ts will now be spread before Uie country, and a decision rendered by that tribunal whose convictions so seldom err, and against whoso will I have no policy to enforce. Aly opinion re- mains unchanged; indeed, it is conlimied by the report, that the interests of our country and San Domingo alike invite annexation of the Republic. Ju view of dif- ferences of opiuion upon this sub- ject, 1 suggest that no action be taken at the present session be- yond the printing and general dis- Irlbution of the report, before the next session of Congress. The people will then havn considered Ihe subject, and formed an opinion concerning it. It is not only the theory of our Constitution that the will of Hie people, constitutionally expressed, is tiic supreme law, but I have ever believed that all men are wiser than anyone man, and if the people upon a full presentation of the facts, conclude that annexa- tion of the Republic is not de- every department of the Government ought to acquiesce in that decision. In again submitting to Congress the subject upon which publicsenti- tnent has been divided, and which has been made the occasion of ni-'fimonioua dubaic in Congress as well as, elsewhere, I may, I trust, bu indulged in a single remark. No man can hope to perform duties so delicate and responsible as to per- tain to the Presidential office without sometimes incurring the hostility of those who doom their opinions and wishes treated with insulliuient consideration and ho who undertakes to conduct the af- fairs of a grout government as a faithful public servant, if sustained by the approval of his own con- science, may rely with confidence upon the candor and itclligence of a free people whose best interests lie has striven to subserve, and can bear ivith patience the censure of disappointed men. (Signed) U. S. GRANT. Executive DEPOHT OF THE S.VX DOMINGO C03I- MlbSlONUtS. The following is the report of the Sail Domingo Commissioners: The report opens by giving the resolution under which the Commis- sion wus appointed. They tra- versed tho Dominica Republic from end lo cud, in several clireclious, either by agents or in person They spent several weeks at, the capitol, in daily conference with the President and chief olficers ot the Government, in examining ofl'cial records, and as at all other places iu constant intercourse with the people, and taking tcslitimony. The present Government is in theoiy a Republic. According to the Constitution, the Government is into three branches, Executive, Legislative, ;iiiil Judicial. Tno lirsl consists of a President and President, elected by an electoral college foi six years, wiUi a difference of three years in the time of their election Uot'i President and Vice President are' ineligible to the Presidency diii'ing the foil jwing term Tho President appoints a Coun- cil ot Stale, consisting ot' Miiiistci of Public Instruction- Interior, Police nnd Agriculture; of Public Works, Commerce, War and Marine. On one of these foui .Ministers the duties of Minister ol Foreign Relation devolve, at the will of thij President. Tho legislative branch of the Government consists of a Senate oloctcd by primary assemblies, and has two members for the city ol San Domingo, two for Santiago, find one for each of the other prov- inces and in all. These hold otlice six years, and may bo rcelectod. Euch province and district has a government, and each parish and military post has a commandant, nominated by the Executive, and resposiblo to him. The lovvns are governed by a Guntamiutos or council, elected by primary assem- blies tor three years. The Judiciary consts of a Su- preme Court, whose seat is at the capital, with a President, four Min- isters and one Attorney General, who are chosen by the Senate from nominations made by the electoral college, and who hold office live years. In every province and district .here is a court silting iu the capitals, consisting of a Judge, Prosecutor and Attorney General, all nominated by the ex- ecutive and holding .office for five years. It was found that this court had, in many parts of the Republic, fallen into disuse. Finally, rach town and parish, or commune, has an Alcalde appointed jy the .Kxcculive, and holding of- iec at his pleasure, and corres- ponding to our Justices of the Peoce. In the latter cuse tho prac- .iceis far bettor than the theory. In all parts of the Republic it was found that the Alcaldes held offlice virtually dining gooci behavior. The Commissioners found a Gov- ernment organized find in full op- eration in all its departments, exer- cising every function of Govern- ment, with General Baez as Chief Magistrate, in full and poacable possession of all part in the Repub- '.ic, except on the Hnylieu border, which is disturbed by jry lenders, aided by Hayticns and jiolitical intriguers. These are in- cited to be active fit this lime by (ear of annexation lo the United States. From all the Commi-ssion- ers could ascertain, President Baez iias the respect of a yreut majority of tho Dominican people for his administrative ability, and strong attachment to many leading men, who regard him as tho only states- man among them who can hold the nation against the domestic fractions and foreign foes. The Commisbionei''! do not find that there is an3r opponent to tlie present administration of the Re- public, who has now or who ever bad any claim to the chief magitra- cy by a title superior to the pres- ent incumbent. Whatever tech- nical dfcfeuts there might have been in his original title to the cfllce, it was confirmed by a national con- vention, and ratified by the assent and support of the people. The frequency of civil comotion during a long period, and conse- quent insecurity of property, have paralizcd industry and discouraged accumulation, mid so impoverish- ed the country that for the last two vcars the financial rpcourecs of the Government hiivcbcen enadequate to pay expenses. The insurrections which still ex- ists are led by Cabral aiid Ltiperon. The former of thcso is universally conceded to be the most important, but neither has a distinct Hag or a regularly organized aimy. Tlie Commissioners find that fiahral does not claim to bo the le- al bead of the Republic that he does not claim to represent the principal, constitutional or legal authority. This is shown by the fict that in hU proi-lamtilion, and in a communication to the Com- mission, he styles himself "Chief Revolutionist.'' The force at Cab- ral's command does not exceed a few hundred men. The Commissioners believe that hud the revolutionists wcilded only their own forced and resources, they would long ago have been put down. Their importance is deriv- ed from the help of foreign in- triguers, and from the fact that be- hind them stands the llaytien na- tion, whish has nearly three times the popula'ion of Dominica, which has never relented in its aggres- sive policy, and at whose head is at present a bloody insurrection. All these dillicutties the Com- missioners believe would disappear should the Dominican Republic be effectually protested by connection with a strong naliou. In almost all parts of tho coun- try, even to the utmotcst, the peo pie were found to be familiar with the question of annexation to thi> United Slates, and have discussed it among themselves with intt'li- geiice. They, generally, declared their belief ihat tho strong arm ot this Kquiblc, taking them under protection as part of this nation, would end the efforts and hopes of every revolutionary lender, and es- tablish law, order and prosperity. Thuinoorporalion inlo the public sentiment ot a feeling strongly favorable to annexation to the United States, in preference to any other power, is partially clue to the presence in various parts of the country, of small colonies of colored people, formerly from the United States. The resources of the country are vast atnl various, utul its pro- duction may be increased. There is evidence of mineral wealth in several parts of tlie island. There is hardly any portion of the island not capable of cultiva- tion, and taken as a whole it, is one of the most fertile regions on the face the earth. Tho agricul- tural products include all tropical fruits and vegetables, as well as commercial staples. The average general health and longevity is quite equal to, and probably greater than in the United Slates. The Commissioners state Samana Buy will be a powerful military and naval station. The stun total of debt and claims of the Government is 159.25. THE editor of the Addison (N. Y.) Advertiser is in receipt of the following from a gentleman, scho- lar, and well wisher: "Being a stranger to Addison I came there I dreamed I dreampt The Editor of the Addison paper Diet! lo lit-11 was sent tlie earth ruitoist tho lord waswillinA the Uevil was mnd to rfccev such a vlllian." Not tlie Person. A short time since a rather seedy individual appeared at the police station in Now Orleans, and in quired if he could be honored wiih an interview with the chief of po- lice, and being replied to in the af- firmative, was shown into the pri- vate office. "What can I do for in- quired the oflicial. "Are you the "Yes." Can I speak to you privately out." "Will no one- hear "No." "Are you sure "Yes." "Well then, listen: As I was crossing Galvez Canal night, about one o'clock, I saw a woman approach the bank ivith a baby in her arms, looking carefully around all tho while to sec if she was fol- lowed, and Iheti went, right at the stopped Threw the child into the canal exclaimed the appalled officer, his face white with horror. replied tho visitor, "wash- ed its face." "Soe hero, my quietly remarked the chief, "I'm not the person you fool killer is outside." Thrilling Incident. At a temperance meeting in Phil- adelphia some years ago, a learned clergyman spoke in favor of vvino as a its use quile to bis own satisfaction to be spiritual, gentlemanly, and health- ful. When he sat down, a plain elderly man rose tmci asked leave to suy a few words. -A youna friend of said he, "who had long been intemperate was at length prevailed on, to the great joy of his friends, to take" the pledge of entire abstinence from all that could intoxicate. Ho kept the pledge faithfully for sometime, .struggling with his habit fearfully, till one evening in a social party, glasses of wine were handed around They came to a clergymen present. who took a glass, saying a feu- words in vindication of tbc piac Uce. Uiouglii Uie youim man, 'if a clergyman can take wine, and justify it so well, why not I So he took a glass. It instantly re- kindled his slumbering appetite, and after a downward course, he died of delirium tremens, died a raving madman." Tlie old man paused for utleianee, and was just abb to add: young man was my son, and that clergyman was the Rev. Doctor who Las just addressed the assembly." A Heavy Cloud. Old Captiin Blank, of Stoning- ton. relates the following rcnifika- ble incident that occurred while on the passage from Now Yoik, some years ago. He observed, one sum- mer afternoon, a heavy cloud arise from the land, and, his great surprise, approach the vessel. Sud denly it broke near him, and mil- lions of mosquitoes covered the deck of the vessel 11 the depth of several inches, while part of the Hook went throuuh the mainsail, leaving nothing but the bolt ropes icily hanging to the spars. Coro- bcrative evidence of this astonish- ing talc was found in tho person of a downcast skipper, who heard tho story, nml who. on dates with the nairator, declared that two days afterward his ship was bearded by a p.irt of the same Hock, and they ail were canvass breeches.

He went in search of it, anil the mother and son to some timber lodged in the midst of the flowing as their only hops of safety. The mother's tends were grow- ing benumbed, and her slight frame wearied out with the effort of hold- ing on. She felt that this struggle for lifa could go on but a little lon- ger. Her boy was young and vig- (Mons. He might hold on till help came. With a mother's loving tender- ness she spoke her words of fare- well, and gave such counsel as a mother might who was looking into eternity. Hut she was not prepared for the response: "Moilier." he said, "If you let go, I will." Oh here was a new an. guish. She felt that for herself she could trust all iu the hands of her Saviour, but her dear boy had no such hopes. She felt that she held his destiny in her hands. She must live and struggle on for his sake. Oh, what mo- ments, and they lengthened on to hours! With almost superhuman strength tho mother kept her hold on the plank, for if she loosened her rasp, her boy's soul was lost for eternity. In two hours help came, and were rescued.

THERE is a pretty young woman of Philadelphia who is fond of prrclical jokes.

Massachusetts has that spei-imen ot human depravity now securely caged in her penitentiary, serving out a life term for arson. Leonard C'hoate, the "fire bug" par excellence, was arraigned at Xenr- buryport under fifteen indictments fur arson. Ot this number two were selectpfl as test cases, and he was tried and touud guilty on both.

An un- married man is but half of a per- fect being, and it requires tie other half "to make things right; and it cannot be expected that in this imperfect state be can keep the straight path of rectitude any more thar a boat with one oar can keep a straight course. In nine cases out of ten, where married men become drunkards, or where they commit crimes against the peace ofthe communily.the founda- tion of these acts was "laid while in a single state, or where the wife is, as is sometimes the case, an un- suitable match.
