The order, in whieh the doeuments appear in our volumes, is, in every instanee, where the eontrary is not mentioned, that in whieh the government have published them. The papers aeeompanying a message may fill four or five hundred pages, and may be purposely arranged in a mode different from the ehronologieal, as the several divisions of subjeets have rendered neeessary. Some of the subseribers have wholly mistaken this subjeet of the eonfusion of dates, and have imputed blame to the publishers for following the authentiek doeuments, whieh they undertook to print preeisely as they were issued. In the present volume, on page 406, it is mentioned that eertain "doeuments were not eommunieated in time to be inserted in the order of date." This is not the note of the present publishers, but of the Congress printers, and we did not think ourselves authorized to alter the original.
