The constitution of the United State provides
that Congress shall assemble annually on tb
first Monday of December, and it haa bean asual
lor the President to make no eommuniratiun
of a public character to the Sennt and lloao
of Representatives until advised of their read-
men to receive it. I have deferred to this
wage until the clow of the tint month of
the esirn, but my eunvidtiou of duty will
ot permit me longer to postpone the discharge
of the obligation enjoined by the constitution up
oa the President " to give to the Congress infor
mation of the State of the Union, and recommend
to their eonidertil.n such measures aa he shall
judge necessary and rxpedien.."
It is a matter of congratulation that the Re
public is tranquilly advancing in a career of pros
perity and peace.

Whilst relations of amity continue to exist
iitcou tue . iinrn niairs ana ail loreign powers,
with aunts of them grave questions are depeeod
ing which may require the consideration of Con
gress. Of such questions, the most important is that
which has arisen out of the negotiations with
Ureal Britain in reference to Central America.
By the convention concluded between the two
governments on the l'.lth of April Inou, both par
ties eonvenanted that " neither will aver" "oc

It was the undoubted, understanding of the
United States, in making this treaty, that all the
present Stub's of the former republic of Central
Anieriea, an I the entire territory of each, would
thenoefnrth enjoy complete independence; and
that both eontrauting parties engaged tquallv.

ed by the stipulati.ms'of the convention; anil
that no dominion was thereafter to be exercised
or assumed in any part of Central America, by
tireat llritaic or the United States.
This government consented to restrictions in
regard to a region of country, whnrein we had
specitic and peculiar interpt,only upon the con
viotion that the like res'rietions weie in the same
tense obligatory on Oreat Hritain. Hut for this

ana limit of toe ttalue, and the colony of the
Bay Islands, and thereupon proceeds by implica
tion to infer, that if the stipulations of th treaty
be merely future in effect, Uraat Britain may
still ountinu to hold the rontested portiona f
Central America. The 1 nited Slates cannot
admit either the inference or the premises. We
steadily deny, tliat, at the date of th treaty. Great
Britain bad any HMsMions there, other than th
limited and peculiar establishment at the Bulite,
and maintain that,. if h hod any, they were sur
rendered by the convention.
This government, reoognixing the obligation
of (be treaty, has of course donited to) see it exe
cuted in good faith by both parties, and in the
discussion, therefore, has nut hoked to rights,
which we might assert, independently of the
treaty, in coai leration of our ireoirranHical ni-
tion and of itther eirmmstannes, a-oich erea'efor

In conse uence ol a destructive hurricane which
visited Ctilm in IKH, th supreme authority of
that island issued a decree, rniitiiig the iui

building materials and provision, free of duly,
but revoked it when about balfth period only

Bot, if the lerolutionary movements, which have
lately occurred in that republic, end in the or-

the propriety of making provision, by a retired

these nioasures were rewjinmended on former

is incident to all govi'rnmrnts,liowver.prrfeet,

of political agitation, as occupy th public mind,
consist, to a great extent, of exaggeration of inev

or mere imagination nf grievance, having but re

function or duties of th federal governments
To whatever extent these questions exhibit a ten- i
dency menacing to the stability of the constitu
