Salmon River and Sandy Creek Harbours -- The President's Message returning the Harbour Bill has been transmitted to the House of Representatives disclosing the reasons for withholding his signature. Comparing this Message and the address of the Oswego County Republican Convention of last September it will be found that on the subject of this bill they conform precisely in thoughts, and have even a singular coincidence in expression.

It now depends on the opposition to say (indeed it always did) whether the Harbours at Sandy Creek and Salmon river shall be made or not. If they are permitted to rest on their own claims to the consideration of government, there will be no difficulty about an appropriation; but if they are again to be clogged by the monstrous unconstitutional appropriations which were last year fastened upon them by General Mercer and other leading opposition members, we foresee that the sands of the Lake will never more effectually choke the entrances of these harbours than will such log rolling legislation choke all hopes of an appropriation.
