They received a rebuke merited or not for clinging to the Topeka Constitution so tenaciously, and refusing to vote for Relegates to the Lecnnplon Conatitu- tion under a law "not denied to be fair and just." The probability of convincing tho people of this Territory that they thin h-ad law "fair and just," iiga'nst the proof, which its operation gave, we think exceedingly doubtful.

Humboldt says he met one dy in his travels, with a naked Indian, win had painted his body so as to represent a blue jacket 'and trowsers with blac buttons. lh, Fays the aged patriarch, pushing back the grey heirs of his wrinkled brow 'Christmas comes but once a year, aud have yielded obedience to the Consti tuiion and the laws. Ho recommends that tho pre-emption laws, be extended to the settleraof that Territory and tho establishment of a Land Office there. He refers to the Treaties which in the past year have been made with Chi na and Japan, by which our trade and intcreourso with those-two nations will be materially augmented, and through which our commerce will derive additional impetus. Our relations with Great J3ritian still remain friendly.

Tho long pending question of the rights of search has been amicably adjusted, but the tics originating from the different' constructions cf the Clayton and Lulwcr Treaty, by tho two nations iB yet unsettled. lie says, that with all tho Continental Ppwers of Europe our are of the most friendly charactsr, excepting The allowance of our demands, that government, for inguries to propel tv have not been allowed on account of the frequent changes in the 'Spanish Ministry. The ucqusition of Cuba, by purchase if possible, for tho purpose ot piolnbi- tiii' the Slave Trade, of maintaining nnd securing the the friendship of Spain and protecting the interests of the country is recommended. Our relations ith Mexico are unsatis factory. Abuudant causes fur war exists and a seizure of a part of her territory as indemnity for her indebtedness is btrongly urged, together with a protecto-mm ovnr the northern Provinces.

A Revenue Tariff and tho levying of spe-' cifie duties, is de-ailed highly expedient. The national debt exceeds 000, which is a rapiJ increase, and it is recommended, that if possible, the expenses of all the departments be further reduced. An increase of our naval force is thought important.
