The President, in hislate message, has the boldnessto propose to Congress, in the face of the American people, ihat an nppropriation be made of the people's tnony to pay certain Spanish claimants for tbe negroes of the Amisstad. It was lecided by the District Court of Connecticut, and by the Supreme Court of the United States, that thoss negroes were not by any Spanish law the property of those claimants- t'iat by the laws of Spain the npgroes of the Amistad were free negroes - that the claimants hnd no more right to them than tliey had .o any free negroes upon ourown soil. We rejoioe that Mr. Adams isslill i:i the House of Representatives to exposé the wickedness of this propsal, and that Gov. Baldwin, who undersiands the whole ca-e so wel], is in the Senate. VV can not su(Ter ourselves to npprehenH that any atteniion will be pi;id to the illegal and unrighteousness uggetions of the message, except to pity andcondemu the obliquy that could venture such a rcquest in the fuce of the civilized world. - New York Evangelist.
