PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. ANDREW JACKSON, of Tennessee, $25,000 per annum.

The President must be thirty-five years of age, fourteen years a resident of the United States, and a natural born citizen, or a citizen at the time of the adoption of the Constitution. In case of his removal, death, or resignation, or inability, the duties of his office devolve on the Vice President: and, by act of 1st March, 1792, in case of removal, death, or resignation, or inability both of President and Vice President, the Presia dent of the Senate pro tempore, and in case there shall be no President of the Senate, then the Speaker of the House of Representatives, for the time being is to act as President. The legal title of this officer is The

President of the United States; and he is, by the Constitution, Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the

Militia of the several States, when called into the service of the United States. He receives ambassadors and other public ministers; and it is his duty to take care that the laws are faithfully executed.

He is empowered, with the advice and consent of two thirds of the Senators pre. sent, to make treaties; and, by and with the advice of a majority of the Senate, he appoints ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers established by law, whose appointments are not otherwise provided for in the Constitution, and the appointment of whom, when of an inferior nature, is not vested by Congress in the President alone, in the courts of law, or in the heads of Departments. He commissions all officers of the United States; and may grant reprieves and pardons, except in cases of impeachment. The compensation of the President is 25,000 dollars per annum, which cannot be increased or diminished during the term for which he is elected. His salary was fixed by act of 18th February, 1793. He, as well as the

Vice President, is elected by Electors, in the respective States, who are chosen as the Legislatures of the several States may provide.

According to an act of Congress, of the 1st of March, 1792, the choice of these Electors must be made within thirty-four days preceding the first Wednesday of December, of the year in which an election of President and Vice President takes place: and they must “be equal to the number of Senators and Representatives to which the several States may by law, be entitled at the time when the President and Vice Presi, dent thus to be chosen shall come into office. Provided always, That where no apportionment of Representatives shall have been made after any enuneration, at the time of choosing electors, then the number of Electors shall be according to the existing apportionment of Senators and Representatives." No Senator or Representative, or person holding an office of trust or profit under the United States, can be appointed an Elector. The votes for President and Vice President are given by the Electors on the first Wednesday of December, in every fourth year, throughout the Union.

The Electors meet in their respective States and vote by ballot for the President and Vice President, one of whom, at least, shall not be ap

MESSAGE From the President of the United States, to the two Houses of Congress,

at the commencement of the second session of the twenty-third Congress.

FELLOW CITIZENS OF THE SENATE,

AND OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES : In performing my duty at the opening of your present session, it gives me pleasure to congratulate you again upon the prosperous condition of our beloved country. Divine Providence nas favored us with general health, with rich rewards in the fields of agriculture and in every branch of labor, and with peace to cultivate and extend the various resources whicb employ the virtue and enterprise of our citizens. Let us trust that, in surveying a scene so flattering to our free institutions, our joint deliberations to preserve them may be crowned with success.

Our FOREIGN RELATIONS continue, with but few exceptions, to maintain the favorable aspect which they bore in my last annual message, and promise to extend those advantages which the principles that regulate our intercourse with other nations are so well calculated to

secure.

The question of the northeasteru boundary is still pending with Great Brilain, and the proposition made in accordance with the resolution off the Senate, for the establishment of a line according to the treaty of 1783, has not been accepted by that government. Believing that every disposition is felt on both sides to adjust this perplexing question to the satisfaction of all the parties interested in it, the hope is yet indulged that it may be effected on the basis of that proposition.

With the Governments of Austria, Russia, Prussia, Holland, Sweden, and Denmark, the best understanding exists. Commerce, with all, is fostered and protected by reciprocal good will, under the sanction of liberal conventional or legal provisions.

To the midst of her internal difficulties, the Queen of Spain has ratified the Convention for the payment of the claims of our citizens arising since 1819. It is in the course of execution on her part, and a copy of it is now laid before you for such legislation as may be found necessary to enable those ioterested to derive the benefits of it.

Yielding to the force of circumstances, and to the wise counsels of time and experience, that power bas finally resolved no longer to occupy the unnatural position in which she stood to the new governments esta

blished in this hemisphere. I have the great satisfaction of stating to you that in preparing the way for the restoration of harmony between those who have sprung from the same ancestors, who are allied by common interests, profess the same religion, and speak the same language, the United States have been actively instrumental. Our efforts to effect this good work will be persovered in while they are deemed useful to the parties, and our entire disinterestedness continues to be felt nod understood. The act of Congress to countervail the discriminating duties, levied to the prejudice of our navigation, in Cuba and Porto Rico, has been transinitied to the Minister of the United States at Madrid, to be communicated to the Government of the Queei)No intelligence of its receipt has yet reached the Department of State.
