PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE. The President’s Message to Congress was received to-day. The following synopsis conveys the important points of the Message. The resistance to the general Government having exhausted itself, the first question that arose was whether the territory within the limits of those States which atempted lo secede, should be held as conquered ter ritory under military authority emanatiug from ihe President. He considers that mili tary governments, established for an indefin ite period over these Slates, would have of fered no security for an early suppression of discontent, and would have divided the people into vanquishers and vanquished, and would have envenomed hatred rather than have restored affection between the divided sections. The true theory is that all pretended acts of secession were from the beginning null and void; that Slates caunot commit treason nor screen the individual citizens who may have committed treason. The States attempt ing to secede, placed themselves in a condi tion wherein their functions were suspended, but not destroyed. But if any State neglects or refuses to perform its offices, there is the more need that the General Government shall maintain its authority, and as soon as practicable, resume the exercise of all its functions. On this principle he bad acted. Gradually, equally nud by almost imperceptible steps, he had sought to restore the rightful energy of the General Government and of the States. To that cud provisional governors were early appointed, All the parties in the late terrible conflict must wof k together in harmony. It is not too much to ask, that on the one side the plan of restoring the energies of the Govern ment shall proceed in conformity with a wil lingness to cast the disorders of the past into oblivion, and that on the other, the evidence of sincerity in the future maintenance of the Union, shall be put beyond any doubt by the ratification of the proposed anti-slavery amendment to the Constitution. This amend ment being adopted, it would remain for the States to resume their places iu the two brandies of Congress, and thereby'"complete the work of restoration. The President says be has no authority to make the freedraen electors. That measure remains wilh tbe States, und they can decide whether it is to be adopted at once, or in troduced gradually with proper conditions. Good faith, however,requires that tbe securi ty ot the freedmen be guaranteed on their liberty, properly and right to labor aud to claim the just returns of their labor. It will be |bis constant aim to promote unity witlh all foreign natious, and be be lieves all of them are animated with the same disposition. The accoidaoce of belligerent rights to insurgent States was unjustifiable. But Great Britain was an exception. She built ships, and furnished men and material of war to the iusurgents The justification for it cannot be sustained before tbe tribunal of the At the same time, be does not advise any prej sent attempt at redress by acts ot legislation. For the future, the friendship between the two countries must rest <>n a basis of mutual justice. We have wisely forborne, because propagandists of republicanism. But it would be the cause of great calamity to onr selves and tbe cause of good government, should any foreign powers challenge tbe American people to its defence against foreign interference ; and be relies on the wisdom and justice of those powers to respect the system of non-interfence which has so long been sustained by them.

EUROPEAN NEWS. The news by the steamship Beotia from Europe, is to the 19iU. The Washington correspondent of the London Times reiterates his assertion, on “high authority," to the effect that Secretary Seward has officially taken a very strong position in support of the Mouroe doctriue as against the French plan iu Mexico. Sir Morton Peto defends the Baptists of Jamaica against the charges made against them in connection with the uegro revolt. A writer lo the London Times controverts some of his statements It was thought iu Paris that Spain would uot listen to a proposal of mediation iu her difficulty with Chili. Chilean blockade runners were preparing to leave England.— The feeling against Spuin was very strong in that country. Very disgraceful scenes took place among the pugilists and “roughs" collected at Tom Sayers’ funeral. The Loudon News, speaking of President Jolinson’s policy and the prospects of the treedmen in the South, says one thing certain is, that the real permanent welfare ot the ne groes is a work which requires patience. The sin nnd sorrow of a hundred years cannot be repaiied in a hurry ; nor can the wronged race he righted or compensated by partisan strife, or aDy rivalry of Southern passion.— Force can never achieve such a work ; an<4 in the particular case, the shortest and surest road to the social salvation of the blacks is a wise gentle consideration for the whites. IMPORTANT FROM MEXICO. The news from Mexico is important. The city of Chihuahua, capital of the State of the same name, and formerly the seat of Presi dent Juarez’s government, but recently in tbe occupation of the imperialists, has been evacuated by the latter, together with the entire State. This tact is officially promul gated in the Periodico of November 2, pub lished at Ei Paso, and is confirmed by des patches to tile same effect received by Senor Romero, Mexican Minister in Washington, last night. The event had caused great re joicing among the Mexican republicans wherever known. President Juarez was about leaving El Paso for Chihuahua, in or der to reinstate the natioual government at his old capital. His liberal Minister of War had issued a stringent order summoning all general and subordinate officers of the na tional army absent from the country with qut leave, to return at once and report for active service. The Mexican.republicans fflhtlie RioGrande frontier had made no further attack on Mat amoras up to the 19th ult. It is said that two thousand French and Austrian troops to reinforce the imperial garrison there hail ar rived at the mouth of the river. From New Orleans we are again furnished with a des patch which iu different dress has been made to do service at least twice before by the tel egrapbers in that city. It states that two republican boats from the American shore of the Rio Grande atempted an attack on the imperial steamer Antonio, which fired upon and sunk them, killing or drowning, as is supposed, all on board. It lias been iulima ted that the craft taken by tbe imperialists for a republican flotilla were merely Ameri can wood boats. An agreement has been entered into between Generals Weitzel and Mejia that the Matamoras Bancbero shall cease to publish articles insulting to our sol diers and people, and that our soldiers on the Rio Graode shall refrain from insults to jbe imperialists across the river. | FROM WASHINGTON. Tlie Organization of tile House, and the Southern Members Gleet. The New York Herald's despatch of Dec. 1, says: “There are now, probably, oneltuudred members of tbe House of Representatives in Washington, with several only from the late insurrectionary States. Excepting the cre dentials of members elect from Tennessee and Virginia noae have been received from the South, it is uot probable that others will reach here from the late insurrectionary States before Monday, owing, among other causes, to the deranged condition of the mails and tbe consequent delay in gathering the official returns of the elections, and the time required to send the credentials to Washing ton. So it does not now appear that, on the meeting of the House on Monday, any diffi culty cun occur in the admission of mem bers from the Southern States ; and this is the general opinion of members now in Washington.” • THE SOUTHERN MEMBERS ELECT. It is reported that there arc not more thaD Bwo of the members of Congress elect from he Southern States whose credentials are properly made, and who could obtain seats even if there was no such hindrance as a test .oath, which perhaps can be swallowed by half a dozen. The program nab of these will be rather startling to the constituencies of .he South when it comes to be revealed in tbe organization of the House. They pro pose to side wilh ihe radicals to keep South ern members off tbe floor by working against tbe repeal of the test oath, even if the ma jority of them go down in the ruins, like Samson. Those who cannot take the test oath expect it will he repealed. The argu ment they use is that when pardoned iho new citizenship conveys with it eligibility to Congress. TKBRIBLR RAILWAY ACCIDENTS. The night express train going South from Washington, on the Orange and Alexandria Kailroad, met with a serious and ’ fatal acci dent about 12 o'clock on tbe evening of the 29th ultimo, one half mile east of Warren lod Junction, caused by the breaking of a rail, which threw tbe near coach, loaded with members of the Ninetv-sixih New York vol unteers, from the track, and precipitated it down an embankment, literally crushing it to atoms, and instantly killing three men and severely wounding twenty-eight others. A terrible disaster occurred on the Ist iust. ou tlie New Jersey Central Railroad, about two miles west of White House, in Hunter don county. An express train going east collided witli a coal train liound in the aiunc direction. The latter Imd been detained by euduavoring to stop a freight car which had lirokeu louse on I tie opposite truck. The baggage car dashed through the first passen ger car, along the tops of the seats, guillotin ing the passengers, of whom seven were killed and seventeen wounded. A coroner's inquest over the bodies of the victims of thu disaster was held, and several witnesses were examined, wbo exonerated the company and thsir employes from ail lilame Tbe luquust will be continued at onopto day.

President Get frnrd’s troops were in possession of the last rebel stronghold, the town of Cape Haylien, lately battered down by a British gunhoat. Tue people of Havana are said to he much dissatisfied with the appointment of General Lersundi as the new Captaiu General ot Cuba. Revocation by President Johttion of tlie Sutpiiisioii of the Writ of Habeas Cor pus in the Loyal States, The Proclamation of the President issued on Dec. I, declares that. Whereas, by the proclamation of the President of the United States of the fifteenth day of December, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, the privilege of the writ of halieas corpus, in certain cases thereiu set forth, was suspend ed throughout the United States ; and where as the reasons for that suspension may be re garded as iiaving ceased some ol tbe Stales and Territories ; now, ’therefore, he it known, that I, Andrew Johnson,President of the United States, do hereby proclaim and declare that tbe suspensiA aforesaid, and all other proclamations and orders suspending the privilege of the writ ot habeas corpus in the States and Territories of the United Stales, are revoked and annulled, excepting us to the States of Virginia, Kentucky, Ten nessee, North Carolina, South Carolina,- Georgia, Florida, Alubama, Mississippi Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas, the District of Columbia, and the Territories of New Mexico and Arizona. From the South west— I The Mississippi Legislature. A despatch from New Orleans, Dec. 1, says :' The action of the military authorities at Mobile in refusing to obey the writ of habeas corpus in the case of Dexter, charged with cotton frauds against the government, is sas tamed by Ihdß’resident. Tbe Mississippi Legislature has passed the exemption bill over the Governor's veto It exempts from execution of judgment $3,000 worth of property belonging to the head of a family, child, &c. The Legislature did not pass the stay law over the veto. Provost Marshals’ courts have been closed in Texas. The National Thanksgiving Day. The following is the proclamation of Presi dent Johnson recommending the observance of to-morrow, the first Thursday of Decem ber, as a day of National Thanksgiving : By the President of the United States of America: A PROCLAMATION. Whereas, it has pleased Almighty God, during the year which is now coming to an end, to reiieve onr beloved -country from the fearful scourge of civil war, and to permit us to secure the blessings of peace, unity and harmony, with a great enlargement ol Civil Liberty ; And, whereas, our Heavenly Father has, also, during the year, graciously averted from us the calamities of foreign war, pesti lence, and famine, while our granaries are full of the fruits of an abundant season ; and whereas, righteousness exalteth a nation, while sin is a reproach to any people : Now, theretore, I, Andrew Johnson, Presi dent of the United States, do hereby recom mend lo the people thereof, that they do set apart and observe the First Thursday of De cember as a day of National Thanksgiving, to the Creator of the Universe, for those de llverances and blessings. And I do further recoipmend that on that occasion the whole people make confession of our natioual sins against His infinite good ness, and with one heart and one mind im plore the Divine guidance in the ways of national virtue and holiness. In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed. Done at the city of Washington this, twenty-eighth day of October, in the year of Our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-five and of the Independence of the United States the ninetieth. ANDREW JOHNSON. By the President: Wm. H. SawxßD, Secretary of Stab 3 estates not Amenable for Treason. — Judge Red field of Boston, has written a let ter to Senator Foot of Vermont, in which he takes the ground squarely that none of the States, late the scenes of insurrection, are responsible as Status, and that nothing but individuals in the States are amenable to the law on the score of treason. The reas oning is said to be clear, cogent, compact and convincing ; one of the most powerful arguments, iu fact, which has emanated from any quarter, —A negro in Natchez recently shot another for calling him a “d—d abolitionist."
