Wahiiisutun, Jan. US. The following is the
president's message, transmitting the addi
tional Chilian correspondence to congress:
I transmit herewith the additional corres
pondence between this government' and
the government of Chili, consisting of the
note Montt; Chiliad minister at the Capi
tol, lo Iilaiue dated January 3, the reply of
lllaiue there to of dale January 27, and
the dispatch from Egan, our minister at
Santiago, transmitting the response of
Perriera, Chilian minister ot foreign alTulra,
to Ibe note of Itluiue of Januury 21, which
wus received by mo on the 2lith instant.
Tbe note of Moult to lllaine, thongb dated
January TS, was not delivered to the s'aie
department until after 12 o'clock, meridian,
of tbo 21th, and was not translated, and its
receipts nidified to me, until lute in Ibe af
ternoon of that day.
Tbe response of Mr, Peierra to our note
ol the 21st withdraws, with acceptable ex
pression of regret, tbe otfeusivo note of
Malta of tbe lllh ultimo, and ulso for the
request of the rocnll of Egun. Tbe treat
ment of the incident of the assault upon tbe
sailors of Ilia Uiiltimore, is so conciliatory
and friendly that I urn of tbe i ijiuion there
is a jjood prospect that tbe ditlt-reuce grow
ing out of that serious iiffcir can now be
adjusted upon terms satisfactory to this gov
ernnieu by tbe ilmnl methods, end with
out special powers from congress. This
turn iu affair is veiy gratifying to me, as I
am Hiiro it will be to congress and to (he
people iu general. The suppoit of tbe
(leculivo to enforce the Just rights of the
nation in this matter has given an instruc
tive and useful illustration of (he unity and
patriotism of our people. Should it lie
necessary, I will ag.nu communicate with
congress opai the subject.
Accompanying the president' message ii
the corrispoudeiice that bus passed between
tbe two g'lverumeuts since the first mes
sage. Tbo sulstuice of the correspondence
has been fully outlined in tbe AsHociated
Press dispatchi-H, previously sent nut.
