SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 18, 1882.
For The Nokthehm Tbibunh.
It is nsual to appoint the last Thurs
day of November as a day of thanksgiv
ing. Why Thursday was originally
choseu in preference to other days, is not
certainly known; but the best authority
gives the reason that shortly after the
landing of the Pilgrims, and while they
were In sore distress, a vessel bearing
food and clothing arrived on Thursday,
and that day was afterward selected and
set apart as a day of thanksgiving, and
thanksgivings were observed at Ply
mouth from 1621 to 1680. The custom
became general throughout Massachu
setts, and from there spread to the other
colonies. There was no national Thanks
giving day until 1784, when Gen. Wash
ington called one to celobrate the ratifi
cation of peace after the Revolutionary
war; in 17 v.i, and the adoption of the
Constitution of the United States.
The next year one was called on ac
count of the suppression of an insurrec
tion. The successful close of the war of
1812 caused anether day of national
thanksgiving to be called in 1815. Some
of the days fell on Thursday and some
did not. New York has had a Thanks
giving day since 1817, almost invariably
called on Thursday, and the same is true
of Virginia since 1855, and la eight
other southern statos since 1858. Presi
dent Lincoln issued proclamations rec
ommending days oflspecial thanksgiving
for victories in 1802, 8I and '04, and
since that time the President such a proc
lamation annually, which has been sup
plemented by the governors of many of
the states. It is now the rule to call
them on the last Thursday of Novem
It is a pood thing for a nation to set
apnrt one day for formal public thanks
giving to God. The proclamations of
the resident and governors are public
acknowledgements of dependence upon
the Supreme Ruler of the universe. They
are proper tributes of respect to Chris
tian i i , under whose fostering care our
institutions have had the beginning and
Who can estimate the value of a Sab
bath in the, middle of the week, when all
the people, not from compulsion but
from choice, observe in some way the
call of the Chief Magistrate to give ex
pressiou to our gratitude. The delight
ful family reunions, and the festivities
of the day promote the cause of morali
ty, rekindle the loe of home, and
strengthen the cords that bind hearts,
communities and states in perpetual
peace, while the ceremonies at Christian
alters call the hearts of the people back
to their God, and send forth influences to
the humblest citizen in the remotest
corner of the republic.
Gratitude is the secret spring of all
true service rendered to our Creator.
There is no loftier sentiment than grati
tude nor more beautiful or profitable, it
gives us true relish of our blessings,
renders duty a pleasure, and lifts the
load of care. The occasions for grati
tude are varied and numerous. Perhaps
at no time have our people had more
cause for gratitude, for universal and
substantial joy. The common comforts
of life are granted to all on equal terms.
The chief institutions of civil society
the school, the church, the home rest
upon a firm foundation. The earth has
yielded her increase to the husband
man's toil, and the products of the field
and tho factory fill all the aveuues of
trade. Peace, plenty, and prosperity
have been largely dispensed. Our soil
has furnished bread to far off nations.
Our state has made wonderful progress.
Villages have sprung up like magic, and
are rapidly growing into cities. Rail
roads traverse our state in all directions.
School houses and churches have multi
plied on every side; industry is rewarded
antfworth is recognized. Let us then
rejoice over the prosperity of the nation
and state, and observe the day set
apart for gratitude to the Great Giver of
all good gifts. '

The Next ongreekional Neaalon.
Washington Dispatch to the Inter-Ocean.
In three weeks Congress will reassem
ble. Senators and members are already
beginning to arrive to make their ar
raugments for the winter, and in a week
or two morefour town will be made lively
with congressmen and their hangers-on.
It is expected that the short session will
be a busy one, and people are beginning
to disenss the legislation which will en
gage the attention of congress. The
ways and means appropriations commit
tee of the house will meet here at least
a week before congress assembles. The
estimates of the various departments
will be printed by that time and placed
before the committee on appropriations
so that by the time congress meets some
of the smaller appropriation bills can be
reported. There are 11 regular bills and
the committee hope to be able to report
and have passed by the house at least
five of theso before the holiday recess
Col. Robert J. Stevens, who has long been
in the service of this committee, said to
your correspondent to-day that the ap
propriation bills would not require as
much time for their preparation as they
did last season, as the heaviest work of
the committee has already been accom
plished, and unless there should be an
effort on the part of the minority to ob
struct their passage they could be easily
disposed of by the 4th of March, when
this congress expires. The Democrats
will be anxious to re-organize the house
as soon as possible after this congress
expires, and may force the President
to call an extra session by preventing
the passage of the appropriation bills
this session. It is thought, however
that such a course would re-act upon
them and do their party more harm than
good. A great effort will uudoubtedly
be made by the Republicans this sessiou
to pass a tariff bill, and an internal rev
enue reduction bill, and to take prelim
inary steps for the former, the ways
and means committee will meet in ad
vance of the session. It is said that the
Democrats will try to prevent this, as
i hey will want this legislation reserved
for themselves In the next congress, and
all the credit of it before the country.
As a party measure it is said that a cer
tain Democratic member will introduce
a bill on civil service reform. The pro
posed measure originated in Boston, and
will provide that every employe or the
government shall be given a commis
sion which will entitle him to hold his
position upon good behavior for four
years from the date of the commission.
It is not expected, of course, that the bill
will pass, but it will be advocated by the
Democratic sido to curry favor with the
employes of the present administration,
who would be made to believe that the
Democrats favor their holding their
places for at least two years of the new
administration if it shouldbe Democratic.
In view of the recent elections and
future politics, the coming session is ex
pected to be a stormy one.

The rmlny friends of Mrs George E.
Frost learned with sorrow of her death.
which oocured on last Tuesday at the
residence of her husband's parents, at
Pontiac. The fact that all were expect
ing to hear of the fatal termination of
her dread disease, consumption, made
the news none the less sad. It is but a
few short months since it was our pleas
ure to notice the marriage of Mr. and
Mrs. Frost, and their many friends
joined with the Tribune in good wishes
for the happy pair, but how soon has the
lay of joy been changed to one of sadness
and sorrow. The deceased was loved
and admired by all who knew her, and
many a heart Is heavy and sad over her
untimely taking away. As Mollie Bailey
she was a general favorite with old and
young, and none enjoyed a wider circle
of friends than did she. To Mr. Frost
she proved a loving and fond wife, and
in his deep sorrow he has the sympathy
of all. The remains were taken to Mack.

"You do noi tell me that your husband
is up and entirely cured by so simple a
medicine as Parker's Ginger Tonic?"
'Yes, indeed, I do." said Mrs. Benjamin,
to her neighbor, "and after we had lost
eighty-five dollars in doctor's bills, and
prescriptions. Now my husband feels
as well as ever.
Now that the good times are again up
on us, it is worth remembering that no
one can enjoy the pleasantest surround
ings in bad health. There are hundreds
of miserable people going about to-day
with disordered stomach, liver or kid

Tonic would do them moregocd than all
the medicines they have ever tried.-
