This government consented to restrictions in regard to a Region of country wherein we had specific and Peculiar interests Only upon the conviction thai the like restrictions were in the same sense obligatory on great Brit Din. But of this understanding of the Force and effect of the convention it would never have been concluded by us. So Clear was this understanding on the part of the United Stales that in contemporaneous Tho ratification of the convention in was distinctly expressed that Mutual covenants of non occupation were to apply to the British establish ment at the this qualification is to be ascribed to the fact that in virtue of successive with previous sovereigns of the country.

These treaties and conventions will be Laid before the Senate for ratification. Treasury. The statements made in my last annual message respecting the anticipated receipts and expenditures of the Treasury have been substantially verified. It appears from the report of the Secretary of the Treasury Llinat the ice ills during the fiscal year ending june 1855, from nil sources were five million three thousand Amie Hundred and thirty Dolthus Ami that the Public expenditures for theime period exclusive of pay fails Oft account of. The Public debt amounted to Illy six million three Hundred and sixty five three Hundred and ninety three dollars. Durin same period the payments made in res some in the United stares. To moving suspicion Over our attitude of neutrality Aud disregarding our territorial rights is conclusively proved by the evidence elicited on the trial of such of4heir agents As have Bera apprehended and convicted. Some of the offi cers thus implicated arc of High official position arid Many of them beyond our jurisdiction so that Legal proceedings Coald not reach the Tho mischief. Those officers in u h undertaking which could commutation among the government Accord Only be accomplished by defying our Laws ing to the respective proportions of their Mari 1 time Commerce to and from the i have declined in behalf of the United states to accept this invitation for the most cogent Rea sons. One is that Denmark not offer to submit to the convention the question of her right to Levy the sound dues. A second is that if the convention were allowed to take cog Okanee of that particular question still it would not be competent to Deal with the great considerations and the fact that the International principle involved which affects cause of complaint was not a Mere causal the right in other cases of navigation and com car reduce but a deliberate design entered upon Mercial Freedom As Well As that of Access to with of our Laws and National the Baltic. Above All by the express terms policy and conducted by responsible Public of the proposition it is contemplated that the impelled me to present the Case consideration of the sound dues shall be Corn to the British government in order to secure mingled with and made subordinate to a mat not Only a cessation of the wrong but its Repar Ter wholly extraneous the balance of Power action. The subject is still under discussion among the governments of Europe ithe result of which will be communicated to while however rejecting this proposition fou in due traae. In the above estimated expenditures of be present Are included three million dollars to meet the last instalment of the ten millions provided Abr in the Lale treaty with. Calexico and seven million seven Hundred and Jiffy thousand dollars appropriated on account of the debt Dee to Texas which two a Toms make an aggregate amount of Fen mite lion seven Hundred and fifty thousand dollars and reduce the or Estima Ted for Ordinary objects of the year to Ihor sum of sixty million four Hundred and Jer Emy six thousand dollars. The amount of the Public debt at the commencement of the present Ficat year forty Fise Hundred and thousand and deduct lion being made of subsequent the Federal government remaining at this time is less thaw forty Mil lion dollars. The remnant of certain other government stocks amounting to two Hundred three thousand dollars referred Iny last message As outstanding has since been paid. I am that it would be difficult to devise a system Superior to that by which the fiscal business of the government is now conducted. Notwithstanding the great number of Public agents of collection and disbursement it is the Heeckt and guard provided including the ment Render in scarcely possible for a a Cuns herbals fraud on the Pait of those or neglect involving i Zaid of serious. Loss to escape de Lection.
