at any moment have been precipitated into a war. This was rendered manifest by the exasperated state of public feeling throughout our entire country, produced by the forcible search of American merchant vessels by British cruisers on the coast of Cuba, in the spring of 1858. The American people hailed with general acclaim the orders of the Secretary of the Navy to our naval force in the Gulf of Mexico, "to protect all vessels of the United States on the high seas from search or detention by thre than probable that the final adjustment of these claims will devolve upon my successor. I reiterate the recommendation contained in my Annual Message of December, 1858, and repeated in that of December, 1859, in favor of the acquisition of Cuba from Spain by fair purchase. I firmly believe that such an acquisition would contribute essentially to the well-being and prosperity of both countries in all future time, as well as prove the certain means of immediately abolishing the African sl

We are informed that, not only in England, but in every part of Europe, the most calumnious caricatures of Southern society are current, propagated by anti-slavery American tourists on the continent. A Southern American cannot enter society in any part of the world, without being confronted at the threshold by the effects of these insidious libels, whilst gentlemen from Cuba and Brazil, both slave countries, find no such embarrassments in their way, thus showing that it is not slavery which causes the prejudice, but the deliberate and malignant use of it that is made to our injury by the traveling enemies of the Southern States. Strange and incredible as it may seem to us, this story about the insult to the Prince in Richmond, which is known to be untrue by the Duke of Newcastle, the admirable and esteemed British Consul at this city, by the May or and Richmond
