Tlio vernor in Ills message states the purport i tlio communication mado to him by llio Secretary of'Stale by order of the President, and proceeds to present his views of the question submitted. Ho alludes to tlio fact that tho alternative to a settlement by a nc gotifilion fur a conventional line proposed by tho general government, is the submission of tho question to another arbitration, which tho State of Maiuo has remonstrated against, and he believes will continue to remonstrate. This fact ho says should bo taken into con federation by tho Legislature, in deciding on tho question whothcr they will givo thoir as sent to a direct cession of torritory for an equivalent. Ho is of opinion that if any thing less is intended by the Representatives of Great Britain, than ihu ofler of a just and equitable equivalent for that portion of coun try which that country has heretofore claim ed as her own, nothing will be accomplished in the way of an adjustment. But if Great Britain is prepared to treat on theso terms, by offering a fair equivalent for territory to be ceded, in other torritory, privileges of navigation or other advantages, ho docs not sco why tho question may not I o thus put at rest forever. Ho therefore thinks favorably of the appointment of commissioners, and cheerfully recommends the adoption of that course. The Governor expresses an earnest hope that tho legislature will confine them selves to this object of their session, and that they will coma to a decision with as much despatch ai is consistent with due delibera tion. Tho following oxtract embraces tho whole of the message, with tho exception of the formal part, and the recapitulation of the purport of the letter of tho Secretary of Statu, which is familiar to our readers. the two iounttles.

' JOHN FAIRFIELD. Council Chamber, May 18, 1312. ItriODE ISLAND. With this request I have deemed it my duty to com ply, and now submit lor your consideration the mal um presented in the communication aforesaid. This step has notlren laktn without mature de liberation. The rxp'iiv- an extra session the busy season of the year -tin I mgor of divided and distracted Luutitilr-oa v, 11 a otlur consideration Inuring upon the point. Invu not been overlooked. 1'ut weighty as they are, it has nevertheless seemed to me, ifiat I should not hair bcui justified in refu sing lo give the people an opportunity, .lhrnu!;h their Representatives, to en ertaiuaud decide a question of so much importance as tho one now presented. And whatever might havo been my individual I'pmions as to the ultimate action that should be had, tlie duty of eoniening tlio Legislature would hve been renarded as no lest imperative; thil duty being distinct from, nnu inuopenueni 01 mat Devolving upon inc l.egisia- oction now resls wit'..' 7 '.i; by whom, I have no doubt, it will I e met ami discharged with that raini ness, prudence and deliberation, required no less by your own high reputation, than fidelity to your con stituents. Thoquestion presented for your consideration i not party question hut is, emiihatically State ques tion ono in which the whole people aio interested and on which their opinions and wishes ehou'd bo truly reflccird. Tho subject of the Iioundnry has ever appeared to me to constitute a common ground from which party policy and party Birifts should be sedu lously excluded, and on which no other contention or rivalry shou'd bo witnessed than that which natu rally springs from an ardent zeal in tho cause of ti e Stato. That the question immediately before you is not free fiom embarrassment and difficulties, is mani fest, and it is equally clear a calm, dispassionate consideration only, can lead to satisfactory results. When we regard tho clearness of our title to tlio territory in controversy the frivolous and unfound ed pretensions of tho' t'rilish claim the long and voxatioui delay that has been desigm-dly effected the frequent invasions and occupation of our terri tory the devastation of our forests the arrest and imprisonment of cur citizens there is danger that an honest indignation may lead us in overlook many im portant considerations ncccsary to a discreet and sound decision. It is due therefore lo the subject that we view it in other lights. Ono alternative now contemplated, it eeitis, by tho General Government, is a submission of the question lo another arbitration. Against this, Maine has ever remonstrated, and 1 1 clicve, will con tinue to remonstrate. We cannot perceive tho dif ference, so far as authority is concerned, between lin ing a thing directly and indirectly. If the General Government has no power to cede directly any por tion ot tho territory of this State, neither ban it tho power to accomplish the muo thing through the forms of an arbitration. But right or wrong in our position successful or o'lisrwiae as we may ho here after in maintaining it we sec, as a matter of fact, that the General Government is ileiurmini il n, tempt the exercise of such n power and thus once more jeopard our territory, unlets soma other mode of adjustment be agreed upon. That ihi should be seriously considered in coming to a decision, is obvious. Whatever may be tho claim, however, of tho Gen eral Government, as to its power through indirection, It does not claim the power of cedintr. direnik'. mi portion of our territory, or of directly agreeing to any other line of boundary than that described in the treaty of 1192. Yich'ing Id the correctness of our position in this respect, the General Government now asks this State for authority thus In eiiln tl, 401. ,. ing controversy, and invites her co-ope ration in rll'ect- 11131 uiijcci.

Mr Dorr, the so-called Governor, arrived at Stonington on Sunliiy mornin j, and remained llicro over the S.ibtodli; a largo nmnborof his friends from Hhode Hand, armed and unarmed, boin in attendance1, and causing much confusion and excitement il that quiet little town during the day. In tho 'even ing congregations engaged in worshipping their Maker were disturbed, and great olfonce given to the sober inhabitants. The I'roudcnco Jour nal says that of the armed parly who went lo Stoninglon to guard thoir chief an! prevent Ins arrest on his way to Providence, " a ore seeral boys, some not over sixtcon ya.lrn o il, who were persuaded into this act of fnlly anC criminality by men who know better, and who did not go thcmselvoc Two or three men are said to havo borne tho priucipil part of tho expense, but thrij did mil go'thtmzclHS. They staid at homo in the comfortable assurance that thoy had per suaded a number of men and boys into an act which might very possibly Inio led all of them to punishment and sotno to an ignominious death." Mr Dorr left Slonington Monday morning, by a special train of cars provided for himself and friends. Great proparrlions had been made lor his reception in Providence ; and according to the Evening; Chronicle, the streels ;o ho alive with people early in the morning, the ma jority of whom appeared to bo from tho country. All who felt interested, and some other.', frotfl curiosity to soo tho sigh', 'repaired to tho Ston inglon depot. By the 1 1 mo of the arrival of tho train, a large concourse of people lnd collected there. Gov. Dorr took his soat in tho carriage, or barouche, prepared for him, at about a quar. tor past 10 o'clock. As he ascended tho ste)f, to seat himself, his friends g.m him three cheers. Tho cavalcade noon tinned off, to tho number, ne tho Journal report', of twolvo or thirteen hundred people. the procession marched thrniish the princi pal streets, and was dismissed at Fedoral Hill. Mr Dorr made a furious and iiilhminatorv speech, in tho course of which. ho " thanked his friends for this farther expression of their attachment lo bim, and tho cause in which they were engaged. lie was sorry he had ever loft the Mate. Had ho been hero ho would tint have countenanced the arrest of any free suffrage man. Gov. Don then drow a sword he had on from its Kcabb.trd, and added that it had belonged to an officer who had fallen in Florida, that it had boon present. ed to him by a brother of tho fallen man, while he was in the city of New York.

It was not for fiOU though, but for 5000, should tho occasion re quire it, or rather should there be an attempt to inarch United States troops to this city.

The British Government also, is now nrenared in propose, for so I am disposed lo regard the matter. what may be thought to bo "a just and equiiablu equivalent" for a portion of that which she lias here tofore claimed at her oun. If this is not going as far as some may deem the Aonor of the Snuo requins, it certainly is far less ohjectionabto than most that wu Uave been accustomed to recei efrom that quarter. . If any thing less than tins is intended, I am persund ed that nothing will he acconiphhed in the way of on adjustment. If it is to be said, as has been aid, that the treaty line is impracticable, and theiefore, n new line must mcessanlv be agreed upon or thai the case is so iuvolttil in doubt and diihculiv that the only equitable way of resolving it is by 'splitting the dilli'icncM' and dividing the territory m some agreed proportions, such prcposiiions if not regarded as ab solutilv insultiiiL'. wou'd noi, I 0111 confident, be fa vorably listened to by a singlj citizen of the State.

Hut if Great llrduiu is prepared to sub stanlially yield ihe point of tillo, and ofiir us a fair equivalent, in other let ritory, privileges of navigation, Ac. for a portion of this territory, as I am at present disposed to believe, I do not see why this vexeil one's lion may not thus be pulforener nt rest. And it is difficult to perceive, how Maine, in thus consulting her interest, would couipromil her honor. Knlertainiua these views, I am free to say, thai I think favoral ly nf the appointment of Commissioners by the Legislature, with such powers as n just view- In the course of tho day, Mr Dorr issued treasonable proclamation, in which after Matino- tho purport of the late letter of the President of the United States to Governur King, Mr Dorr says : " From a decision whi -h conflicts wiih ihe lialit of sovereignty iiiliereut 111 the I'eople ol tins Stuu-, and with the principles which liuat tho foundaliun ol n Democratic Republic, an appeal has been taken to the IVople 01 our country, 1 11.7 understand our cause; they sympathise in the injuries which hae been in flicted upon us; they disapprove iho course which the National l.xeeuiive has adopted toward this State: und they assuie us uf their dirosition and in tention tointcrporsra barrier betwerii the supporters of the 1'eoplu's Constitution and the hired soldiery of the United States."

Governor Domt lies dormant somewhere among tho Mass.hills, fc Dutee J. Pierce, though ho may not yet havo returned to his duty, has been pierced with a sense of his dangerous position, and retired from the evo of tho law. A consti tution, extending the right of suffrage, will doubtless bo formed immediately, and little Rhody will again enjoy that quiet which was her chiuf glory of old. The manner in which this band nf fac tiotts and desperate men have been counten anced in their wicked and traitorous pro ceeding! by 1110 ' . waders ol tho UoCCiutl party, stould open tho eyes of llio people to their trutclr.inictor. Tho plot originated in tho cflbrtSof Locofocos to regain an ascen dency in Ho Statu. It is nonsense to talk about theircontonding for tlie right of suf frage. Thiy contended for no sucli thing. The right ot'sulTrage was offered them, and confirmed b) a constitution full as liberal and deinocraic as llio one they themselves formed, and Hiis constitution was rejected by tho votes and e.ierlions of theso very men who havo clamored so loudly for " thn right of'sufirag.'." Tho wh'olu affiiir was a deliberate plot of treason against ono of tho sovereign States of tho Union, for the sake of political ascendency. The primu movers of the plot were known loaders of the Locofoco party in Rhodo Is and. Pierce, who has been the main support of Dorr's administration, w; member of Coigress only fuur or fivn years ago, and notorious as one of the most noisy, rabid, ranting Lacos in the House.

Tho one a sturdy patriot, a bold and dauntless spirit, that never quailed, nor feared tho face of mortal foe tho other a blustering dema gogue, a traitor to his native State, and a covr ardly deserter from his party and his friends.
