O Exchequer bills received at par for subscrip- tions in this District. THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. We concluded last week tho publication of this document and before this time we presume the most of our readers have given it attentive perusal. In accordarce with cus- tom we will proceed to notice editorially the statements and recommendations con- tained in it. So far as style is concerned it is almost superfluous to say that it is written like most of the documents of the same au- thor inelegantly if not slovenly. In the first place the President opens with the statement that ''we are at Peace with the world" which we think is not borne out by facts. Our countrymen are dying in chains in Mexico and this is not the concomitant of a state of peace or even of honorable war- fare. We are in truce with Mexico a truce...
