The second Session of the
Twenty Fourth Congress com
menced on Monday 5ih inst. A
quorum of members appeared and
answered to thtir names in both
Houses, which, having been or
ganized according to the usual
forms, after attending to the un
iiiiportant business brought before
them, adjourned until the next
day, Tuesday, when the Annual
Message was received from the
President of the United States.
Its great length compels us to give
merely a brief sketch of the con
tents of this important State pa
Fdlow- ( itizens or the Senate,
and House of Rtprestntatives:
Addressing to ymi the last an
nual message I shall ever present
to the Congress of the United
States, it is a source of the most
heartfelt satisfaction to be able to
congratulate you on the high
slate of prosperity which our be
loved country has attained. With
no causes at home tr abroad to
lessen the cor.Gdence with which
we look to the future for continu
ing proofs of the capacity of our
institutions to produce all the
fruits of gooid government, the
general condition of our nflVirsj
mav well excite our national pride.

there may be soon a necessity to over that of the preceding year of
use a portion of the funds depos
ited with the Slates.
The consequences apprehend
ed, when the deposite act of the
last session received a reluctant
approval, have, been measurably
realised. Though an act merely
for lhe deposite of lhe surplus
moneys of the United States in the
State Treasuries, for safe keeping,
until they may be wanted for the
service of the General G overii
oent, it has been extensively spo
ken of as an act to give the money
to the several Slates, and the
have been advised lo use it as a
gift without regard to the means
of refunding it when called for.
Such a suggestion has doubtles
been made without a due consid
eration of the obligation of the de
posite act, and without a proper
attention lo various principles and
interests which are affected by it.
ll is manifest that the law itself
cannot sanction such a suggestion,
and that, as it now stands, the
Stales have no more autiiorily to
receive and use these depositee
without intending to return them,
thau any deposite bank, or any
individual temporarily charged
witli the safe keeping or applica
tion of the public money, would
now have for converting tiie same
to their private use, without the
consent and againsi the w ill of the
Government. But, independent
ly of the violation of public faith
and moral obligation which are
involved in this suggestion, when
examined in referent e to Hie terms
of the present deposite act, it is
believed that the considerations
which should govern the future
legislation of Congress on this
subject, will be equally conclusive
againsi the adoption of any meas
ure recognising the principles on
which the suggestion has been

the same year were $2,755,G23

been redeemed from embarrass
ment and debt, has accumulated
a surplus exceeding half a million
of dollars, has largely extended
and is preparing still further to
extend the mail service, and re
commends a reduction of postages
equal to about 20 per cent. It is
practising upon the great princi
ples, which should control ever

dering to the public the greatest
good possible, with the least pos
sible taxation to the people.
Several improvements relative
to the Post Office are suggested.
