Since the commencGreat Britain are of the most friendly character. Since the commencement of my administration, the two dangerous questions, arising from the Clayton and Bulwer treaty, and from the right of search claimed by the British government, have been amicably and honorably aitizens, and especially to those engaged in foreign commerce, that the claim, on the part of Great Britain, forcibly to visit and search American merchant vessels on the high seas in time of peace, hes of the two countries. This was most fortunately prevented by an appeal to the justice of Great Britain, and to the law of nations as expounded by her own most eminent jurists. The only questto China in obedience to his instructions, has remained perfectly neutral in the war between Great Britain and France and the Chinese empire; although, in conjunction with the Russian minister, he wa

Under our ad valorem system such preferences are to some extent inevitable, and complaints have often been made that the spirit of this provision has been violated by a lower appraisement of the same articles at one port than at another. An impression strangely enough prevails to some extent that specific duties are necessarily protective duties. Nothing can be more fallacious--Great Britain glories in free trade, and yet her whole revenue from imports is at the present moment collected under a system on specific duties.--It is a striking fact in this connection that in the commercial treaty of 23d January, 1860, between France and England, one of the articles provides that the ad valorem duties which it imposes shall be converted into specific duties within six months from its date, and these are to be ascertained by making an average of the prices for six months previous t
