According to the desire of the Senate, expressed in their resolution of the 10th. inst. I now communicate to them a Report of the Secretary of state, with it’s documents, stating certain new principles attempted to be introduced on the subject of neutral rights, injurious to the rights and interests of the US.    these, with my message to both houses of the 17th. inst. and the documents accompanying it, fulfill the desires of the Senate, as far as can be done by any information in my possession which is authentic and not publicly known.
