It is unnecessarily prolix and dog- matical. It abounds in arguments rither than in principles In view of the President's position it is bold and tull of self a'-buiance. In its tone towards the people it is cold and repulsive--in towird foreign countries it is warm and boisterous, courterous, yet deadly. It lacks the elements of a first class State paper, but is compantively safe from criticism, because it i concerned in the citation ot fact more than in the enunciation o political truths. It is devoid o frankness, and steers clea ot the most important suggestion upon topics of the most urgen magnitude to the nation. Its lit erary m»rit is not of a high order as the scholar's rhetorical and grammatical probe finds in it defects which science discards and which taste reprobates. We find m it the same ear-marks which we have To the Creditors oveted seit. A sp£ond 'Go long "lor, Buck' you Darb, what you bout now?' with numerous and scientific j f r k s at the line, pnd .ittistic louiishei ot the whip, icsulted no 3tter 'Why pon de face of d" D e a r t h , w h a l ' s g o t into dese steers? es lonk at D u b , now, a pullm' gin Buck, an a t i y m to twis' his ail roun' ny soul " toder \TI\' Do b'leve in steers know-. I ain' traced for tour or five months past in the Union newspaper, and which come up both in the matter and in tbe manner, like old stories, to court our wonder. In fine, we admit that the Message is a" good as could be expected under all circum stances; and vastly more chaiged with the Roman virtue of assurance under defeat than any of the kind recorded in American annals. ~ucr:, I ( i u r in n T Inq T i m n i i l l not i o u b t t h e i n i (.'i HP.; in tin' l ^ i j i "v cc i i S r i i or, Ac L u c i \ i in r \n ht more 1 t n u i \\ 1, 't, I iiiuii II \ T r i r i H A Y - \ MI Rrnl K O I M \ l . t t h i " \ \ r l L L u n t \ » hn t'ea. \ V n i £e PH. t f( - (..i J KI ;\fs t I _ al I ' I, U V t- i l - Oli.

'Dolar and g naif,' iremuloua.y friend 'Tlnn answ^r-d o, old fellow, and Of late years it has been the wise policy of the British Government, in adding to their naval stiength, to build nothing hut steamers, wljile nearly all jheir line-of-battle ships and frigates that aie at all fit for sea hive been converted into screw propellers. The Duke of We'licg ton, the Royal Sovereign, and all the other first class vessels that huve been built mthm the past five years, and \\hich carry about one hundied and thirty-two guns each, are all screw steamers; so that Great Butain has at present the largest steam naby ( m the world -- Snen, in addition to all this, there is ^ her powerful aud exceedingly efficient fleet of gunboats, which have come to be regarded as more serviceable than vessels of «, larger class. Of the spventy-eight vessels of different sizes enumerated in the United states Register, but twenty- five steamers, and of these, three aretendeis and carry no guns; so that of our whole fleet, we have, compared with the naval force of England, but twenty-five really efficient and serviceable vessels.-- J\ew York Herald. The Message. [From the N Y Comini.rei il «cr ] The Message is emphatically a mischievoui document, and m al most every sense is unworthj of the Executive of a powerful nation. It commences with an attempt at a vindication of the President's course in respect to Kansis, in which the want of candor amounts to a mis representation of- facts and the en unciation of sophistries that woul be discreditable to a special plcade or the most violent of rolitical par , , just include that amount m iht noli. and pay tt for me tvheii you get the note protested ' f if?"

As a digest of the operations of thf gov ernment for the year its statement should have the calm, dispa c sionate and absolute veriety of history -As a guide to the legislation o Congress its recommendations should be marked by careful am comprehensive statesmcnship. A aa index to other nations of the direction of- our foreign policy, it should unite dignity uid firmness with a just and conciliatory spirit. What shall be said of the present Message of President Buchanan, judged by these criteria? Mr Buchanan seems to have bad no such standard before him Yet ibis Message is no more exposed criticism than some tha', have pre- eeeded it. It is one of the sadie^t signs of the degeneracy of our na tional administrations that the annual Message is, and is (ipected to be, a partisan document mainly -It is looked to on all domestic qurs- tiocs which have become party issues, not ror an ingonerous pcrv«t- s'on of them to support tbe of the party in power. If this is taken, to- be the true and proper in. tent of a Presidential Mes-age, this production of Mr. Buchanan ar- pwers its purpose very well. Its style might have been greatly im proved in many respects. It corn- no mpans *a model of Eng'ish is by portion, but redundancy aud tan- tjplogy are faults int" which old men naturally fall, and the Message bears internal evidence of its genuineness. Nobody else could have written it. But we can easily par- doii defects nt style, even in a document ub,ch should be a mod', while errors of defect and logic are not so readily forgiven.
