Mr.   Lewis offered  to ameficl hiilast reaelution by adding "if not inconipatiablo fyi.tfitbo public interest," but the House rejected the fPr   limpndmeat.   ;> ... The Presi'diMit, ns u matter of course, declined a ompiiance with eii^er of these iequests;but what .'further action will be taken upon them in the houses it) which they oi iginated retnaius to be seen., The' announcement of their adoption surprised us Dot a little, and the reasons which have actuated the mem-jbers who passed them aie beyond our comprehension. Whatever the correspondence of ihe President with other naiious may beytii can have no effect or obligation upon the nation, until it has lead 10 a treaty or treaties of some kind, and they are ratified by the Sen-nle. The (Constitution indicates the manner and the proper lime in which all such information as concerns .Congress, or lequires its action, is to be laid before This ill-timed eargeiness, if not met in a proper Bpiiit>might end in destroying iu a single diay. measures which have been maluiing for more than a ye�r, and in soiious injury to the nation, but theie-jeotion in the House of Representatives of the amend-meiit "if not incompntiuhle whh the public i.itcresi," shows the lengths which ihosu who have adopted these measures are willing ir go in order to gruify a curiosity made criminal by the disregard of the public woifare with which ll is indulged.
