PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE to tbs seventh cokbrks. Executive Department Washington Dec. I 1842. J Gentlemen of the Senate ana House of Representatives Circumstances involving the general interests and condition of the country have induced on earlier call of the honorable Congress than was anticipated. Du- ring our existence as a people no deliberative body hat ever been convened under more interesting and important circumstances; nor do I believe it ivill ever again devolve on any assembly of men to act upon subjects of more vital importance to their country and mankind. Since the commencement of legislation in Texas as a separate and independent power we find the pro- ceedings of Congress but too frequently characterised by acts of selfishness and partiality. The public good has but loo oflcn been disregarded and the national interests left out of view; and thus without rstablish- ing any general principle or system of legislation temporary expediency has been substituted for a due consid...

K JJoctqi. THE DEATH OF THE FLOWERS. The melancholy days are come the .saddest of the jear Cf wailing winds and naked woods and meadows brown snd sere. Heaped in the hollow of the grove the withered leaves lie dead; They rustle to the eddying cnt. and to the rat-bit's tread. The nbin and the wren ale flown and from the shrub the jr And frcmlhs wood-tup calls the crow through all the gloomy day. Where are the flowers the young fair flower that lately sprung and stood I n brighter light and softer airs a beauteous sis'.eihood 1 .Alas! they all ate in I heir graves; the gentle race of (towers Aro lying in their lowly beds with the fair and good of ours. The rain is falling wheic they lie: but the cold November rain Calls not from out Ihe gloomy earth the lovely ones ajain.

tries &c. Now"xvh?n i consider on one side the great difficulty and even impossibility with many to get money to pay direct taxes the risk we run of loosing from 200 to 400 per cent ; and on the other aide the encouragement to agriculture the great ad- vantage of paying with the labor of our own hands. and liy this means the facility of arranging the mat- ter with the merchants. 1 think I am justified in Bavins there is 150 per cent. in favor ot the tariff. but let us suppose only 100. From the best informa- tion 1 can "tt the mercantile per cent in the district ranors from 50 to 100. Let us then take an arith- metical nr u the result is 75 This is all the offset to the 100 per cent advantage (on my plan the tariff duties coulJ be collected as cheap as direct taxes and therefore nothing need b said about Collector's fees.) and leaves 25 per ceat. neat in favor of the tariff. 1 therefore conclude the tariff should bear the greatest burthen.

'-'- Ipoctrn. From Friendship's Offering for 1843. THE DREAMS OF OLD. BY M. A. BR07VNE. The dreams of old have faded Their wondrous power is o'er; Wc cannot be persuaded To try their spells onccmore. Our wisdom now is scorning What our fathers deemed a boon; The world' bright dcuds ofmornin; Have melted in her noon yet for the parted clory They shed on mortal mould Think gently of the phantasy That framed the dreams of old. Where are the fair)' legions That peopled vale and grove And overspread earth's regions With strange ethereal lore 1 The flowers their beauty haunted Are blooming gaily still But time hath dbenchanted The meadow and the rill. There's not a child who listens When their magic talc is told Whodoes not know they were but dreams Those radiant dreams of old. Where is the high 2spiring That the slar-uatcherknew. Born ofthe pure desiring For the holy and the truel The faith that never halted Heaven's starry page to read And framed a dream exalted Unto a prophet's creed. ...

Our forefathers left the land of their nativity and of their uncestOTS and braved the dangers ol the Ocean when navigation and the art of ship building was al- most in its inrpnlinn in ConseQUCnCC of persecution and intolerance nnd sought an asylum in the wilds of America; choosing miner ioowcii amoiijjsi savages and wild beast bereft of the luxuries and even the necessaries of life in ah untried clime than to cudure intolerance even for a season.
