New Series of the Congressionf 1 ?lebe and Appendix. \ CONGRESS, at its last session, through the Joint Library Committee of the two Houses, hav ing authorized a large .ubscription for the Con gressional Globe and Appends, and the Senate, by resolution, having directed the mode of preparing the reports of its prQceedings, and authorized the Secretary of the Senate to contract with the under signed, stipulating that the reports when written out shall bo subject to the revision of the Speakers, the Congressional Globe and Appendix is now of fered to the public, not only aa an authentic, but as an offioial report of tho proceedings of Congress, made under the eye, and published by authority of I The Undersigned originated the mode of journal-1 izing the proceedings of Congress, which, thus adopted, is to be perfected with the aid and under the supervision of Congress. Their publication was the first and only one that gave each successive step in every measure in both branches of Congress , a brief of all the debates; every important vote; and an appendix, including at full length all the revised siieeches delivered during the session. The woik, as it is now to be conducted by them, will be found a most perfect political history. The senators from the States, and the representatives from every wction of the I'nion bring with them into Congress a knowledge of the feelings, senti ments, and interests of their several constituencies. Public opinion and the public information, as it ex ists among those they represent, are imbodied by them; and in the crucible ?f Congress the wisdom of our times is brought to its test, and is there con centrated, in directing the political movements of the whole country. The impulses thus given through Congress from every quarter, react upon the nation as a whole, and all its component parts are made to move in co-operation. The press cannot be more usefully employed than in condensing and again spreading abroad the intelligence of our free coun try. tending to auch happy results through our al most miraculously adjusted State and national insti tutions. ... , f i Having identified ourselves with the plan ot ad-^ vancing the usefulness of Congress by publishing full and impartial reports, and having a large mass of the Congressional Globe and Appendix, issued during the last twelve years, which would be impair ed in value to us, and utility to the public, if the work were discontinued, we have a double na?t'*? to prompt us to extend it through a new series. We are resolved, if possible, to give it permanence, and to hand it down to successors as a standard work, worthy of being maintained and improved. We ahall enter upon our new undertaking without being distracted or burdened by any associate labors of the press v and, thus unencumbered, shall hope to make the new series a step in advance of the former m ajl points of execution. With a view to accomplish this, we a.,all be (on* or the other) in attendance on Congress. _ f. -'"*,7 \Ve' believe every member of Congress will witness that our reports are full and fair. The Congressional Globe is made up of the daily proceedings of the two houses of Congress, and printed on superfine double-royal paper, with smaN type, (brevier and nonpareil,) in quarto form each number containing sixteen royal quarto pages. The speeches of the members, in this first form, are con densed?the full report of thfe prepared speeches be ing reserved for the Appendix. All resolutions motions, and other proceedings, are given in th form of the Journal, with the yeas and nays on up of .w ?? nual message, the reports of the principa ofticers.of the government that accompany it, and all speeches of member* of Congress, written out or revised by themselves. It is printed in the same form as the Congressional Globe, and usually makes about the same number of pages during a session. During the first month or six weeks of a .^8Slon' t'lere is rarely more business done than will mak two numbers a week-one of the Congressional Globe and one of the Appendix; but dunng the re mainder of a session, there is usually ; mat ter for two or three numbers of each eveiy week. The next session will be unusually '.nlcr?9j,'"K' therefore, we calculate that the Congreseional Globe and Appendix together will make near 6MI Urge ouarto pages, printed in small type. We furnish complete indexes to both at the end of a session. We have on hand the Congressional G)obeand , Anuendix for the last fifteen sessions ot Congress, making together fifteen large royal quarto volumes, ^ S'.Xlll ?M. unbound, tor $41; - I ... ijllcH1- hacks and corners, for $5". 1 nose who want tho back volumes should apply j itnmediately, at. they are .n^ 222?

Daughters of Temperance, took place on Tuesday evening, at the McKendre? Chapel. The Rev. Mr. Egglestou, the pastor, suc ceeded the singing of the Choir with an ap~ [ proporiate prayer. Mr. Sebly Parker, one of the most through going and efficient advocates of the Temper ance Reformation, explained the objects of the ''Union"?the advancement of Virtue, Love, and Temperance, and provision, in advance, for "the hour of sickness and misfortune"? and which exhibited the beneficial effects of a "unity of co operation." Mr. J.C. Harkness ably and zealously insis ted on the saving effects of sobriety, the duty oi the lovers of the cause of Temperance to league together i'or the common good, and complimented the ladies for their praiseworthy efforts to advance the cause in which they are engaged. The '-Union" has been in existence nearly seven months, and numbers about thirty mem bers ; and during this short period, after having paid for their charter, regalia, constitution, etc. have a sum in the treasury to meet all demands ?a condition which every society should en* deavor to attain. It is needless to say that we wish the "Union" success. May it be perpetual. A large numbei of articles of the stolen goods, recently dicovered, are yet at th? watch-house, unclaimed. The owners can obtan them by proving property. Good Advice.?A correspondent who sign* himself ''Catholic," complians of another correspondent who used the t erm "Monkish imposture" in a late communication for th? Fountain! and remarks that it would be easy for him to retort in terms "Heretical predjud ice," 8tc. This unknown friend give# us a very good piece of advice in reference to the avail ourselves ol his TF&flcITy ffi relation to our independent paper. A Sad Occurrence.?In our paper a'few days ago, we published, under the obituYry head, the death of Miss Charlotte Clubb, aged forty-five years. We have since Warned that this lady,foraome time previous to her death, was afflicted 'with occasional alienation of mind, caused by sick ness. Her body was much emaciated ; and, in her condition* the extreme kindness of her relations afforded but little relief. Dur ing the brief absence of her attendant a week before her demise, she hurried to an adjoining room, and, being near a window, either fell or leaped out, falling on the pavement and in juring herself severely. She was again con veyed to her chamber, when, at the expiration of seven days, she was relieved, by death, of her intense suffering. We truly sympathise with those that mourn, and fervently trust that they may realize the sacred promise, and be "comforted." The Christain Souvenir is a beairtilful monthly edited by Itev. Henry D. Moore ot Philadelphia and our particular friend Rev. A. A. Lipscomb, Professor of English Litera ture and Belle Lettres in Batimore. The Oct ober number, accompanied with a kind letter from A. A. L. has just come to hand. We shall be pleased to act as agents for the work, and would now solicit our friends to call at our office and subscribe for it. Terms $1,00 per year in advance. Each number of the maga zine is prettily illustrated with a line engraving and also a colored specimen of some flower. The "Carnation Pink" is represented most accurately in the number bejt'ore us. , We perceive that the Reverend gentlemen having the editorial charge of this work are a bout to publish a larger and yet more elegant Magazine, the first number of which is to be issued the first of January, 1847; to be called "The Literary Athenkum." We shall try to find space for the publication of the Pros pectus in a few days. OO-The following is from the Philadelphia Sun of Monday. It is an item of interest t? many of our readers. Organization or a New Conference We understand that a meeting of Ministers and | Lay Delagates will be held this morning at 10 o'cjock, at the First M. P. Chapel, corner of Eleventh and Wood streets, for the pnrposeof organizing the "Philadelphia Conference of the Methodist Protestan tChurch." Rev. T.. H. Stockton will deliver an address on the occasion. Queer Calculation?The editor of the Yankee Blade says : "It would be a curious sight, to see all the babies in the States, under five years old, together; they would make a pret ty little collection of '.?,400,000. Whatasqaull there would be, should they all be spanked utthe same time, and what a heap of sugar plum* it would take to[quiet them!"
