JAMES BUCHANAN.

To the Senate of the United States :

I transmit to the Senate for its consideration, with a view to ratification, a treaty of amity, commerce, and navigation, and for the surrender of fugitive criminals, between the United States and the Republic of Venzuela, signed at Caracas on the 27th of August last.

A similar treaty was concluded on the 10th July, 1856, was submitted to the Senate, and was, by a resolution of that body, approved with an amendment on the 10th March, 1857. Before this amendment could be laid before the Government of Venzuela for acceptance, a new minister of the United States was accredited to that Government. Meantime the attention of this Goverument had been drawn to the disadvantage which would result to our citizens residing in Venezuela if the second article of the treaty of 1856 were permitted to go into effect—the “pecaniary equivalent” for exemption from military duty being an arbitrary aud generally an excessive sum. In view of this fact, it was deemed preferable to instruct our new minister to negotiate a new treaty which should omit the objectionable second article, and also the few words of the twenty-eighth article which had been stricken out by the Senate.

With these changes, and with the addition of the last clause to the twenty-seventh article, the treaty is the same as that already approved by the Senate.
