This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

To the Senate of the United States : 

I submit to the Senate for consideration, with a view to ratification, 
the amendments introduced by the Constituent l^ational Assembly oi 
Bolivia, in its decree of ratification, into the treaty of peace, friendship, 
commerce, and navigation, concluded with that Republic on the 13th of 
May, 1858, an official translation of which decree accompanies this 
message with the original treaty. As the time within which the ex- 
change of ratifications should be effected is limited, I recommend, in 
view of the delay which must necessarily occur and the difficulty of 
reaching the seat of Government of that Republic, that the time within 
which such exchange shall take place be extended in the following 
terms:/* Within such period as may be mutually convenient to bot£ 
Governments.^

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 29, 1862. ' 

The following messages were received from the President of the 
United States, by Mr, Nicolay, bis secretary : 

To the Senate of the United States : 

I nominate Charles B. Waite, of Illinois, to be an associate justice 
of the Supreme Court of the United States for the Territory of Utah, 
in the place of Robert P. Flenniker, removed; 

Also, Thomas J. Drake, of Michigan, to be an associate justice of the 
Supreme Court of the United States for the Territory of Utah, in the 
place of Henry R. Crosbie, removed. 

ABRAHAM LINCOLN. 

Washington, January 27, 1862, 

To the Senate of the United States: 

I withdraw the nominations, made on the 18th instant, of "additional 
aides decamp on the staff of Major-General McClellan, commanding 
the Army of the United States, with a view to their being assigned to 
duty with the troops now serving in Kansas." 

ABRAHAM LINCOLN. 

WASHiNaTON, January 28, 1862. 

To the Senate of the United States: 

I lay before the Senate a dispatch which has just been received from 
Mr. Corwin, our minister to Mexico. It communicates important in- 
formation concerning the war which is waged against Mexico by the 
combined powers of Spain, France, and Great Britain. 

Mr. Corwin asks instructions by which to regulate his proceedings 
so as to save our national interests in the case of an adjustment of the 
difficulties between the belligerents. I have heretofore submitted to 
the Senate a request for its advice upon the question pending by treaty 
for making a loan to Mexico, which Mr. Corwin thinks will, in any case^ 
be expedient. It seems to be my duty now to solicit an early action 
of the Senate upon the subject, to the end that I may cause such in- 
structions to be given to Mr. Corwin as will enable him toact in the man- 
ner which, while it will most carefully guard the interests of our coun- 
try, will at the same time be most beneficial to Mexico. 

ABRAHAM LINCOLN. 

WASHiNaTON, January 24, 1862. 

To the Senate of the United States : 

I submit to the Senate, for its consideration with a view to ratifica- 
tion, a treaty of extradition concluded by Mr. Corwin with the Mexi- 
can Government on the 11th of December last. 

I also submit a postal convention concluded by that gentleman at the 
same time, and a copy of his dispatch of the 24th of the same month, 
explanatory of the provisions of both these instruments, and thereasonn 
for the non-ratification by Mexico of the postal convention concluded 
in this city on the 3l8t of July last and approved by the Senate on the 
6th of August. 

A copy of a letter from the Postmaster-General to the Secretary of 
State in relation to Mr. Corwin's postal convention is also herewith com- 
municated. The advice of the Senate as to the expediency of accept- 
ing that convention as a substitute for the one of the 31st of July la^st, 
is requested.

concluded at the city of La Paz, on the 10th of May, 1858, between the 
respective ministers plenipotentiary of Bolivia and the United States 
of North America, is approved, determining clearly the construction of 
article 2d by the following explanation : 

"As in said article it is stipulated that any special favor in navigation 
and trade grjinted by one of the contracting parties to any other nation 
extends and is common to the other party forthwith, it is declared that 
in what pertains to the navigation of rivers this treaty shall only apply 
to concessions which the Government may authorize for navigating 
fluvial stieams which do not present obstructions ; that is to say, those 
whose navigation may be naturally plain and current without there 
having been need to obtain it by the employment of labor and capital ;

that by consequence there remains reserved the right of the Bolivian 
Government to grant privileges to any association or company, as well 
foreign as national, which should undertake the navigation of those 
rivers from which, in order to succeed, there are difficulties to be over- 
come, such as the clearing out rapids, &c., &c. 

"Art. 2. Authority is given to the Executive that in the act of the ex 
change of ratifications of the said treaty it may consent to the cancellation 
of the last period of article 14th, which reads thus : * Nevertheless, the 
interment in Bolivia of a citizen of the United States, a stranger to the 
Catholic faith, shall take place without any external observances of 
the religion to which the deceased may belong; "' 

And that the ratification of the said treaty and of these amendments 
shall be exchanged by the duly authorized authorities of the respective

to both Governments, any provision contained in the said treaty to the

122 EXECUTIVE JOUENAL. [Feb. 19, 1862. 

wiu, mlDister of the United States, in Mexico, submitted the followio^ 
report : 

The Committee on Foreign Eelatious, to whom was referred a message 
from the President of the United States of December 17, 1861, trans- 
mitting a draft for a convention with the Eepublic of Mexico, with ac- 
companying papers, and a message from the President of the United 
States of January 24, 1862, trasmitting a dispatch from Mr. Cor win, 
have had the same under consideration, and report: 

On the 2d of September, 1861, Mr. Seward addressed to Mr. Corwin, 
at Mexico, a dispatch, in which he says that the President greatly de- 
sires that the political status of Mexico, as an independent nation, 
should be permanently maintained ; that the events communicated by 
Mr. Corwin alarmed him, and that he conceived that the people of the 
United States would scarcely justify him were he to make no effort for 
preventing so great a calamity on this continent as would be the ex- 
tinction of that Eepublic ; that he had therefore determined to empower 
Mr. Corwin to negotiate a treaty with Mexico for the assumption by the 
United States of the interest, at three per cent., upon the funded 
debt of that country, the principal of which was understood to be about 
sixty-two millions of dollars, for the term of five years from the date of 
the decree recently issued by Mexico suspending such payment, pro- 
vided that Mexico could pledge to the United States its faith for the 
reimbursement of this money, with six per cent, interest, to be secured 
by a special lien upon all the public lands and mineral rights in the sev- 
eral Mexican States of Lower California, Chihuahua, Sonora, and 
Sinaloa, the property so pledged to become absolute in the United 
States at the expiration of the term of six years from the time when 
the treaty went into effect, if such reimbursement be not made before 
that time. The President felt that this course was rendered necessary 
by circumstances as new as they were eventful and which seemed to 
admit of no delay. 

Mr. Seward proceeds to say in his instructions that they are condi- 
tional upon the consent of the British and French Governments to 
forbear from action against Mexico on account of her failure or refusal 
to pay the interest in question until after the treaty shall have been 
submitted to the Senate, and, if ratified, then so long thereafter as the 
interest should be paid by the United States. 

Mr. Seward adds that his instructions are not te be considered as spe- 
cific, but general, subject te modifications as to sums, terms, securities, 
and other points. 

Mr. Corwin, in an earlier dispateh, dated at Mexico 29th July, 1861, 
and addressed te Mr. Seward, had already suggested the policy which 
he was now authorized to pursue, and propos^ to obtain a lien on the 
public lands and mineral rights in the provinces mentioned by Mr. 
Seward. By such an arrangement, in his opinion, two consequences would 
jfoUow: First, all hope of extending the domain of a separate Southern 
Eepublic in this quarter or in Central America would be extinguished ; 
and, secondly, any further attempt to establish European power on this 
continent wouldcease to occupy either England or continental Europe. 

Afterwards, in a dispatch dated at Mexico, June 29, 1 861, Mr. Corwin in- 
closedto Mr. Seward the projectof a treaty between the United Statesand 
Mexico, by which the United States was to lend to Mexico five millions 
of dollars, payable in monthly installments of one half million a month, 
also the further sum of four millions of dollars, payable in sums of one- 
half million every six months ; the whole loan to be secured by a mort-

^geon the public lands, mineral rights, aud church property of Mexico, 
for the realization of which a board of five commissioners was to be or- 
ganized, three to be appointed by Mexico and two by the United States, 
holding sessions in the city of Mexico until the debt and interest are 
fully discharged. No reference was made in the proposed treaty to the 
consent of the British and French Governments mentioned by Mr. 
Seward as a condition, nor to the application of the money when re- 
ceived by Mexico, nor does anything on this subject appear in the ac- 
companying dispatch. 

The President, by his message of December 17, 1861, submitted the 
dratt of this treaty to the Senate for their advice. Afterwards, by 
another message of January 24, 1863, he called their attention to it 
again in the following language : 

" I have heretofore submitt^ to the Senate a request for its advice 
upon the question pending by treaty for making a loan to Mexico, which 
Mr. Corwin thinks will, in any case, be expedient. It seems to me to be 
my duty now to solicit an early action of the Senate upon the subject to 
the end that I may cause such instructions to be given to Mr. Corwin as 
will enable him to act in the manner which, while it will most carefully 
guard the interests of our country, will at the same time be most bene- 
ficial to Mexico.*^ 

Meanwhile Great Britain, France, and Spain, by a convention dated 
at London, October 31, 1861, have entered into an alliance, the declared 
object of which is '^ to demand from the authorities of the Republic of 
Mexico more efficacious protection for the persons and properties of their 
subjects as well as a fulfillment of the obligations contracted by the 
Bepnblic of Mexico." The high contracting parties engaged not to 
seek for themselves in the employment of coercive measures any acqui- 
sition of territory nor any special advantage, and not to exercise in the 
internal affairs of Mexico any influence of a nature to prejudice the 
right of the Mexican nation to choose and to constitute freely the form 
of its government. Tbey further declare that, desiring that the meas- 
ures they intend to adopt should not bear an exclusive character, and 
being awure that the Government of the United States on its part has, 
like them, claims to enforce upon the Mexican Republic, they agree that 
this Government shall be invited to accede to this convention. 

Mr. Seward, in a dispatch dated at Washington, December 4. 1861^ 
declined to become a party to this convention, saying ^^ that the United 
States prefer, as much as lies in their power, tomaintain the traditional 
policy recommended bythe father of theireountry, confirmed by success- 
ful experience and which forbids them to make an'alliance with foreign 
powers." 

In pursuance of this convention the naval and military forces of the 
three great powers have assembled at San Juan d'Ulloa, and the flags of 
the three powers now float over the castle. The Government of Mexico has 
rallied the people to resist these powers, and there is at this moment the 
prospect of a prolonged and exhausting contest. The occasion seems 
now to have arrived when the aid proposed by Mr. Seward in his dis- 
patch of September 2, 1861, may be of decisive importance to Mexico. 
To the United States it would also be of great importance if it could be 
the means of removing from Mexico the pressure of these hostile arma- 
ments and in placing a neighbor Republic in a more tranquil and in- 
dependent condition. If the allied powers simply desire security for their 
claims and nothing else, then a reasonable provision of this nature 
ought to be satisfactory, so far as any question arises from the claim.

124 EXECUTIVE JOURNAL. [Feb. 19, 1862. 

The debt of Mexico to the allied powers may be stated, in roand 
numbers, as follows : 

To England, immediate, say $1, 000, 000 

Convention, 4 per cent, interest 5, 000, 000 

Bondholders, 3 per cent, interest 65, 000, 000 

General claims, say 4, 000, 000 

$75, 000, 000 

To France, immediate, say 500, 000 

Convention, balance 200, 000 

Pennaud agreement 800, 000 

Claims, general, say 3, 500, 000 



To Spain, immediate, say 500, 000 

Convention, 3 per cent, interest 8, 000, 000 

Claim8,8ay 1,000,000 



5,000,000 
10,000,000 



Total 90,000,000 

Of coarse, any payment or guaranty of this large mass on our part is 
out of the question ; nor was it contemplated by the United States in 
the original instructions to Mr. Corwiu. Ic was proposed to make such 
payment as would afford present relief to Mexico, and would secure the 
forbearance of the allied powers. To this end Mr. Seward oflfered to as- 
sume the interest of the Mexican debt for the term of live years. But 
the claims in the foregoing list which are not funded, and are entitled 
*' immediate,'' it is understood are pressed with equal energy by the al- 
lied powers. If these were satisfied, and provision were made for the 
interest, the United States would have the following liabilities : Pay- 
ments, immediate, or, say, at 3, 6, and 12 months, as follows : 

To England, say, 6 and 12 months' drafts of Mexico on 

United States $1, 000, 000 

To France, say, 6 and 12 months' drafts of Mexico on United 

States....! • 700,000 

To Spain, say, 6 and 12 months' drafts of Mexico on United 

States 500,000 



Total, cash, or 3, 6 and 12 months 2, 200, 000 

Interest, say, semi-annual drafts of Mexico on the United States : 

To England, convention, 4 per cent $200, 000 

bondholders, 3 per cent 1, 950, 000 

82,150,000 

To Spain, convention, 3 per cent 240, 000 

Total interest per annum 2, 390, 000 

Certain other outstanding claims of the allied powers are not included 
in either of these lists. It has been proposed that these should be pro- 
vided for by a siuiiing fund, at the rate of ten per cent, for ten years, 
as follows : 

Sinking fund for claims, 10 per cent, per annum for ten years : 

To England (claims) per annum $400, 000 

To France (Petiuaud agreement) per annum 80, 000 

To Franct* (claims) per annum 350, 000 

To Spain (claims) per annum 150, 000 

Total per annum 980, 000

Fbb. 10, 1802.] EXECUTIVE JOURNAL. 125 

The assumption of all these liabilities for a long period would throw 
upon the United States a burden too great for the present moment, al- 
though, perhaps, notout of proportion to the anticipated advantages. If 
anything be done on our part, it must be more moderate. The offer of 
Mr. Seward for Ave years, if accepted, would throw upon the United 
States a resj/onsibility sufficiently large ; and this responsibility ought 
to be kept within a limitation of which $15,000,000 should be a max- 
imum. 

But there are two conditions which must be required by the United 
States before the assumption of any such responsibility. The first is 
the assent of the allied powers, and the acceptance on their part of the 
friendly offers of the United States. Unless these allied powers are 
parties to the transaction it would beproductiveonly of embarrassment 
and loss, without accomplishing any permanent good to the United 
States or to Mexico. 

The other essential condition is, that security should be given by 
Mexico to the United States for the liabilities assumed. It is not too 
much to expect such security, nor is Mexico, as is well known, disin- 
clined to give it. Her creditors are now foreclosing their demands 
a(>on her, at the cost, perhaps, of her national existence, and she turns 
to the United States for help. Not merely frieudship, but a continental 
policy, affecting, perhaps, our own cherished interest, prompts us to af- 
ford such help, so far as in our power. In asking for security we shall 
simply follow the rules of prudence, whether between nations or indi- 
viduals. 

The security proposed by Mr. Gorwin on the public lands, minerals^ 
and chu'-ch property of Mexico would render necessary the appoint- 
meut of a board or mixed commission for the mauagemeut and disposi- 
tion of this property. This necessity seems to add to the complications 
of such a security. 

The securitv proposed by Mr. Seward on the public lands and min- 
eral rights in the several provinces of Lower California, Chihuahua^ 
Sonora, and Sinaloa is simple, and it is understood that in some of this 
territory there is a vast mineral wealth. The province of Lower Cali- 
fornia is unquestionably the territory of Mexico most interesting to the 
United States, in a military and naval point of view. 

Another security, perhaps less manageable, but more interesting still, 
would be the right of way across the Isthmus of Tehuantei>ec, with a 
mortgage on the adjoining public lands of the Isthmus. Estimated by 
its pecuniary value, this security would not be large; but there can be 
no doubt of its political and commercial importance. 

Still another security would be a pledge by Mexico of 25 per cent., or, 
perhaps, a larger percentage of the customs or other revenues. 

But it is not easy to say positively at this distance from the scene of 
operations, and with the information before the committee, what is the 
most practicable form of security. Perhaps it is advisable to leave this 
matter to the careful discretion of oar minister at Mexico, under instruc- 
tions from the President, with the explicit understanding that the 
United States declines any territorial acquisi^-ion, and seeks the con- 
solidation of Mexico without dismemberment of any kind. 

Soch are the main features of the question on which the President 
has asked the advice of the Senate. With more precise information on 
matters of detail it might be proper for the Senate to enter upoi;i details 
in its answer. But such information, especially with regard to the 
aetnal relations, now daily changing, between Mexico and the allied 
powers, can be obtained only on the spot. It is evident, therefore.

120 EXECUTI\^ JOUKXAL. [Feb. 19, 1862. 

that the Seuate can do little more than indicate an opinion on what lias 
already been done, and declare the proper principles on which a nego- 
tiation with Mexico should be conducted, without presuming to fix in 
advance all its terms. Much must be left to the discretion of our min- 
ister there, and t6 the instructions which ho will receive from the Presi- 
dent. 

The committee recommend the passage of the following resolution : 

Resolved^ That in the changing condition of the relations between 
Mexico and the allied powers, and in the absence of precise ioforma- 
tion, it is impossible for the Senate to advise the President with regard 
to all the terms of a treaty with Mexico so as to supersede the exer- 
cise of a considerable discretion on the part of our minister there, under 
instructions from th^ President, but that, in answer to the two several 
messages of the President, the Senate expresses the following conclu- 
4Bions: 

First. The Senate approves the terms of the instructi«>ns to our min- 
ister at Mexico, as contained in the dispatch bearing date September 2, 
1861. 

Secondly. The Senate does not advise a treaty in conformity with the 
project communicated by our minister to Mexico in his dispatch of 
INovember 29, 1861, as the same fails to secure in any way the applica- 
tion of the money in question to the demands of the allied powers, or 
either of them, and therefore can be in no respect satisfacto^ to them. 

Thirdly. The Senate advises a treaty with Mexico providing for the 
assumption of the interest on the debt from Mexico to the allied powers 
for a limited period of time, and also for the payment of certain imme- 
•diate claims by these powers, the whole liability assumed to be kept 
within the smallest possible sum, it being understood that the same 
shall be accepted by the allied powers in present satisfiaction of their 
•claims, so that they shall withdraw from Mexico, and that the same 
shall be secured by such mortgage or pledge as shall be most practi- 
•cable, without any territorial acquisition or dismemberment of Mexioo. 
On motion by Mr. Sumner, 

Ordered^ That the report be printed in confidence for the use of the 
Senate. 

Mr. Sumner, from the Committee on Foreign Relations, to whom was 
referred, on the 29th January last, ^^ a treaty of extradition between 
the United States and the Mexican Government, concluded by Mr. Ck>r- 
win, December 11, 1861," reported it with an amendment.

Lieutenant-Oeneral Scott has advised me that, while he would cheer-

to promote the interests of the United States and of peace, yet his in-

country by any existing mode of travel, and he therefore deems it his 
duty to decline the important mission I had proposed for him. For 
this reason I withdraw the nomination in this respect heretofore sub- 
mitted to the Senate. It is hardly necessary to add that the nomina- 
tion was made without any knowledge of it on his part.

238 EXECUTIVE JOURNAL. [APB. 15, 1862. 

I recommend, therefore, the passage of a resolatioD, at the earliest 
practicable moment, extending the time specified in the 8th article of 
the extradition treaty and in the 12th article of the postal convention, 
for the exchange of ratifications, for sixty days from and after the 11th 
June next, the date of the expiration of the period named for that pur- 
pose in both instruments. 



Washington, April 16, 1862. 



ABRAHAM LINCOLN. 



To the Senate of the United States : 

On the 26th of June, I860, the Senate approved of the treaty of 
friendship and commerce between the United States and Nicaragua, 
signed on the 16th of March, 1859, with certain amendments. 

On the next day, namely, June 27, i860, the Senate adopted a reso- 
lution extending the period for the exchange of the ratifications of the 
treaty for six months from that date, that is, until the 27th of Decem- 
ber, 1860. 

Although the amendments of the Senate were immediately trans- 
mitted to our minister in Nicaragua for submission to the Government 
of that Republic, he failed, notwithstanding earnest efforts, to induce 
that Government to call an extra session of Congress to take into con- 
sideration the amendments of the Senate of the United States within 
the supplementary time named in the resolution of June 27, 1860, for 
the exchange of ratifications. 

It was not until the 25th of March. 1861, nearly three months.after 
the expiration of the six months extended by the Senate resolution, that 
the Congress of Nicaragua acted favorably upon the amendments of 
the Senate of the United States. 

A translation of the decree of the Nicaraguan Government approving 
the treaty as amended, with an additional amendment, is herewith in- 
closed. 

It will be perceived that while the ratification of Nicaragua recites 
literally the second amendment of the Senate and accepts it with an ad- 
ditional clause it does not in explicit terms accept the first amendment 
of the Senate striking out the last clause of the sixteenth article. 

That amendment is of so much importance that the adoption or re- 
jection of it by the Government of Nicaragua should not be left to con- 
struction or inference. 

The final amendment of that Government properly extended the time 
of exchanging ratifications for an additional twelve months. That time 
has expired. For obvious reasons connected with our internal afflairs 
the subject has not sooner been submitted to the Senate, but the treaty 
is now ladd before that body, with this brief historical sketch and the 
decree of the Nicaraguan Government, for such further advice as may be 
deemed necessary and proper in regard to the acceptance or rejection 
of the amendments of Nicaragua. 

ABRAHAM LINCOLN. 

Washington, April 16, 1862.

Ordered^ That the nominations of Jefierson C. Davis, Eugene A. Garr,

To the Senate of the United States : 

I transmit to the Senate for its consideration, with a view to ratifica- 
tion, a treaty of amity, commerce, consular privileges, and extradition 
between the United States and the Republic of Salvador, sigiied in this 
city on the 29th instant. It is believed that, though this instrument 
contains no stipulation which may not be found in some subsisting treaty 
between the United States and foreign powers, it will prove to be mu- 
tually advantageous. Several of the Republics of this hemisphere, among 
which is Salvador, are alarmed at a supposed sentiment tending to re- 
actionary movements against republican institutions on this continent 
It seems, therefore, to be proper that we should show to any of them 
who may apply for that purpose that, compatibly with our cardini^ 
policy, and with an enlightened view of our own interests, we are will- 
ing to encourage them by strengthening our ties of good will and good 
neighborhood with them.

Syo EXECUTIVE JOUENAL. [June 24, 1862. 

The Senate, by unauimous consent, proceeded to considered the said 
resolution, and nnanimonsly agreed thereto. 

Ordered, That the Secretary lay said resolution before the President 
of the United States. 

TUESDAY, June 24, 1862. 

The following messages were received from the President of the 
United States, by Mr. Nicolay, his secretary : 

To the Senate of the United 8tate$ : 

On the 7th day of December, 1861, 1 submitted to the Senate the 
project of a treaty l^etween the United Stttes and Mexico, which had 
been proposed to me by Mr. Oorwin, our minister to Mexico, and re- 
spectfully requested the advice of the Senate thereupon. 

On the 26th day of February last a resolution was adopted by the 
Senate to the effect " that it is not advisable to negotiate a treaty that 
will require the United States to assume any portion of the principal 
or interest of the debt of Mexico, or that will require the concurrence 
of European powers." 

This resolution having been duly communicated to me, notice thereof 
was immediately given by the Secretary of State to Mr. Oorwin, and he 
was informed that he was to consider his instructions upon the subject 
referred to modified by this resolution, and would govern his course ac- 
cordingly. That dispatch ftiiled to reach Mr. Oorwin, by reason of the 
disturbed condition of Mexico, until a very recent date, Mr. Oorwin 
being without instructions, or thus practically left witiioat instmctions, 
to negotiate further with Mexico. 

In view of the very important events occurring there, he has thought 
that the interests of the United States would be promoted by the con- 
clusion of two treaties, which should provide fbr a loan to that Repub- 
lic. He has, therefore, signed such treaties, and they having been 
duly ratified by the Government of Mexico he has transmitted tiiem 
to me for my consideration. The action of the Senate is of course 
conclusive against an acceptance of the treaties on my part. I have 
nevertheless thought it just to our excellent minister in Mexico, and re- 
spectftil to the Gk>vernment of that Republic, to lay the treaties before 
the Senate, together with the correspondence which has occurred in re- 
lation to them. In performing this duty I have only to add that the 
importance of the sa ject thns submitted* to the Senate cannot be over- 
estimated, and I shall cheerftilly receive and consider with the highest 
respect any fUrtber advice the Senate may think proper to givo npon 
the subject. 

ABRAHAM LINOOLN. 

Washington, June 23, 1862. 

The message was read. 

The treaty between the United States of America and the Mesican 
Republic for a loan to the latter, concluded at- the Oity of Mexico the 
6th of Apiil, 1862, was read the first time. 

The treaty between the United States of America and the United 
States of Mexico, fixing the compensation of the commissionors to be 
apitointed under the treaty between the two Governments for a loan to 
the latter, concluded the 6th of Apnl, 1862, was read the first time. 
On motion by Mr. Sumner, 

Ordered^ That the said treaties, together with the message and ac- 
companying documents, be referred to the Oommitteeon Foreign Hela* 
tions and be printed in confidence for the use of the Senate.
