"Your new Constitution is, I think, on

do not quite like the compelling preachers
to take the oath ; but the clause forbidding

lighted me exceedingly. It is a long step
in the right direction. The wealth of the
church is the poverty of the commonwealth,
and. there are lew greater curses to a conn
try than a rich and powerful clergy. It
was a great stroke lo exclude traitors from
the ballot box. I wish all other States
would do the like, and I hope you may be
able to keep what you huve got on this

When planters receive' pay lor next

be used in paying a part of the Northern

that it will render a stay law desirable or

The Mission of the Union Party-Present
During the last lour yesrs oftiloody strife,
nearly every section of our beloved land
has fallen a victim t,i the damages growing
out of the war. Excepting the Stotes whose
governmental authority was in armed hos
tility to the federal government, " no State
1ms suffered more than Missouri. Had it
ot been for the. stout arms and brave
hearts of the little bund of heroes who
maintained the supremicf of the federal
authority at. the hazard ol their lives?, the
cose might end undoubtedly would hav
been much worse - to-dnyi but wuiie tne
Southern States in llu-ir hour of lolly and
madness yielded to the iiripuUet ol their
bn'cr naturet, Missouri bore bIoCI the old
ymbol of our nationality amid the smoke
nu carnage or name 10 a glorious issue.
This was not done or approved by the
great mast of our citizens as in iminy ol
the Northern Stotes, but by the Radical
Union men of our biate, who in former years
had struggled against an arrogant majority
deprived ol their rignta jus'ly due every
freeman. When the issue wasjiretenled
they boldly stepped forward, inviting all
irrespective of past political affinities to
unite with lliTn in the. patriotic work of
living from natural death our bleeding and
inperilled country. It' was at this time
that the great Union parly of the Country
From El Paso, Mexico, the sent of Fres

to the 20lh of Ouluber. The President and
all his Cabinet were still there at that time;
but it was thought possible that thry might
soon remove to a more favorable locality,
as the report ol nn intended movement on
the place by the Imperialists continued to
prevail, The people Were reduced to con
siderable straits, but were still .hopeful of
the success of the Republican cause, and
looked forward fondiy to support from the

The New Organs Picayune says : " As
evidence uf the great business transacted
in this cily, we may ttale two facts. One
house on Canal street, engaged in the whole
sale and ready-made clothing business, sold
for the month of October last goods to the
amount of $450,000. During that month
nne batik it g house paid over its counter an
average of $1,-100,000 per day. Last Sat
urday at this bank twelve hundred checks
were paid between bank hours, the total
amount of which was $1,700,000. We
doubt if as large a business as this was ever
done before in this city by one bank.

A Wonderful Comet.
There is one of these eccentric and mys
terious members of the solar system that
requires 572 years in which to make its
revolution in its very eliptical orbit around
the sun. The lirst account oi l's appear
anoe on record is 1767 years before Christ
when some took it to be the planet Venus
changing its appearance and course.
was seen the second time 1,193 years be
fore Christ, and again 1,150 years later
This last was 43 H. C, the year after Ju
lius Coesar wat killed in the Roman Senate
It was certainly seen A. D , 530, the fifth
year ot the Kotnan Linperor Justinian
The account is, that a remarkable comet
wat teen twenty days in the month of Sep
tember, and that for tome time after the
sun Appeared pale. It was clue rgain in
A. D. 1105, and early in the following year
it was seen. Its last appearance was in
1680. Sir Isaac Newton and others give
an interesting account of its velocity, best,
&c. This comet has been gone 185 years,
and it will require about 102 years befare
it reaches the farthest part of its orbit, and
its greatest distance from the aun. It will
be due here again in the year 2256.
This wonderful comet as we have said,
wat seen 1767 years B. C, and it must
have nppeared 575 years before that, which
would have been zJ-HJ H. C, or six years
after the flood in the days of Noah. Its
previous visit to our system must have
been 2917 B. C; and before that, accor
ding to our chronology, was the Creation.
This lacks sixty-two years uf the time re
quisite for the comet, to make a complete
revolution, so that at the Creation it might
hove been placed at a distance from the sun
equal to what it could have moved in Sixty
three years. It is probably now making its
eleventh revolution in its orbit. How great
and marvelous are the works of the Almighty!

in process ol lime, will come to mean gold,

of Mr. McCulloch to issue these gold cer
tificates we called it the first step toward
a resumption of specie payment, and it will
prove such. When a sufhcienry of these
gold certificates shall have been put into
circulation to serve the purpose or a conver

greenbacks of the higher denominations may
be withdrawn,.and gradually a speciapaper
currency be brought into ue, without any
of the disturbing influences which a sud

cause. For all government purposes for

long untrod by man except as the highway,

We need a healthy emigration, which can
only be had by holding out the necessary

must be toned down to the changed circum

foundations of the social structure have
been removed and need replacing. There
must be concert of action. Law must be
made respectable, perlect order must pre

must be donned. The school system should
be reorganized and put in operation, the
churches should be reopened and made to
perlorm their portion ol the work in hand,

sound throughout the Slate, until the world
is convinced that we are not falling back
