CIONGRESS, at its last aesoion, through the Joint t Library C unmittce of the two Houses, hav ing authorized a large subscription for the Con gressional Globe and Appendix, and the Senate, by resolution, having directed the mode of preparing the reports of its proceedings, and authorized the Secretary of the Senate to contract with the under signed, stipulating that the reports when written out shall be subject to the revision of the Speakers, the Congressional Globe and Appendix is now of fered to the public, not only as an authentic, but as an ofliaiul report of the proceedings of Congress, made under the eye, and published by authority of the body. The undersigned originated the mode of journal izing the proceedings of Congress, which, thus adopted, is to l>e perfected with the aid and under tho 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 speeches 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 section 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 puldic 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 such happy results through our al most miraculously ad justed State and national insti tutions. Having identified ourselves with the plan of 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 motive 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 shall enter upon our new undertaking without being distracted or burdened by any asseciate labors of the press; and,thus unencumbered, shall hope to make the new series a step in advance of the former in all point3 of execution. With a view to accomplish this, we shall be (one or the other) in attendance on Congress. The repoits wiP not bo affected by our party bias. We believe every member of Congress will bear nilfnoos iK?i .ro full an,l 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 small type, (brevier and nonpareil,) in quarto form, each number containing sixteen royal quarto pages. The speeches of the members, in this lirst form, are con densed?the full report of the prepared speeches be ing reserved for the Appendix. All resolutions, motions, and other proceedings, are given in the fonjn of the-Journal, widi the yeas and nays on every important question. The Appendix is made up of the President's an nual message, the reports of the principal officers of the government that accompany it, and all speeches of members of Congress, written out or revised by themselves. It is piinted 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 session, t'lere is rarely more business done than will make two numbers a week?one of the Congressional Globe and one of the Appendix; but during the re mainder of a session, there is usually sufficient mat ter for two or thiee numbers of each every week. The next session will lie unusually interesting; therefore, we calculate that the Congressional Globe and Appendix together will make near 1500 large quarto pages, printed in small type. We furnish i complete indexes to both at the end of a session. | We have on hand the Congressional Globe and ; Appendix for the last fifteen sessions of Congress, making together fifteen large royal quarto volumes, which we will sell, unbound, tor $41 ; or bound, with Russia backs and corners, for $50. Those who want the back volumes should apply for them immediately, as they are in demand. Congress subscribed for 34 1 complete sets during the two last j sessions. The proceedings of Congress for the last nine years cannot be procured from any other j source?Gales &. Beaton having stopped printing their Register of Debates in. 1837. We will endeavor to print a sufficient number of I surplus copies to supply all that may be miscarried, or lost in the mails ; but subscribers should be very particular to file their papers carefully, for fear that' we should not be able to supply all the lost nurn- j Iters. TERMS: For one copy of the Congressional Globe $1 00 j For ono copy of the Appendix 1 00 i For six copies of either, or part of both 5 00 ! The money may be remitted by mail at our risk. The safest and best way to remit is, to pay the amount to the post master where you reside, and | take from him a receipt, according to the following forui: Post Offick, ??,184 . i " Received from A B dollars cents, for the Globe, from which I have deducted one per cent.^* and charged myself, in my account with the Gene ral Post Office, with the balance. The postmaster' of Washington city will pay that balance to Hlair & Rives, or to their order on the back of this re-; ceipt. The rules of the General Post Office Department authorize such receipts to be given, and paid here, when the amount does not exceed $10. When it exceeds $ 10, it is best to remit as much as possible in bank notes, and the postmaster's receipt for the balance. The postmaster's receipt should be sent directed to us, and not to the (Kistmaster of this city, as some persons are in the habit of doing. The money should be here by the 7th of December, at farthest, to procure all the numbers. If not here by that time, we may not be able to furnish the first numbers. Our prices for these papers are so low that we cannot atVord to credit them out; therefore, no per son need consume his lime in writing for them un less he sends the money. BLAIR & Rl VKS.

BV fanny PURKESTBR. I am a little maiden, Who fain would touch the lyre , But my poor lingers ever Bring discord from the wire. 'Tin strange I'm not a poet, There's music in my heart; Some mystery must linger About this angel art. I'm told that joyous spirits, Untouched by grief or care, In mystery so holy Are all too light to share. My heart is very gladsome ; But there'* a corner deep, Where many a shadow nestles, And future sorrows sleep. I hope they'll not awaken, As yet for many a year ; There's not on earth a Jewel, That's worth one grief-born tear. Long may the heart be silent, If sorrow't touch alone, Upon the chord's descending, Has power to wake its tone. I'd never be a poet, My hounding heart to hush, And lay down at the altar, For sorrow's foot to crush. Ah, no! I'll gather sunshine, For coming evening's hours; And while the spring-time lingers, I'll garner up its flowers. I fain would learn the music Of those who dwell in heaven ; For woe-turned harp was never To seraph fingers given. But I will strive no longer To waste my heart-felt mirth ; I will mind me that the gifted Are the stricken ones of earth. The new Planet.?Armed with this moral and physical enginery, Le Verrrer-sat himself down in his study to grapple with thegreat pro blem of the new world. Astronomers had long noticed irregularities in the movements of H?rs chel. Sometimes it was hastened, sometimes retarded ; sometimes pulled outwardly from its orbit, and again returning to it. Taking all the observations of Herschel which have been made, he found that at such a time it began to diverge from its estimated coarse, at sucti a time it began to return towards it, at such a time it reached its orbit again. He concluded that at the time of its greatest divergence, a line drawn from the eye of the spectator through Herschel, would also intersect the body of the planet beyond. Thus he found the place of the planet at a given time. Then 111 g a mourn ur luriunitc x-ntrifjf u? <**>mputo/1 the distance and probable mass of the planer. From these he computed its probable orbit, and determined its place in the heavens. In a few weeks after, it was discovered by a friend to whom he had written in Berlin, in the place where he had located it. Then it was discov ered in London, and afterwards in the United States. IIow great, said Prof. M., is the honor of this man. The elder Herschel had accidentally discovered a planet, and his name goes down to all ages linked with it. But Le Verrier, alone in his study with his slate and pencil, grapples with a great problem with this mental enginery, and having mastered it, when it lies in his power, his own work, he says to his servant the astronomer, "Go, point your tube to such a place and you shall see a world." His servant obeys, and a new world is added to our system. How much the great er honor is his. Prof. M. concluded his Lecture before he had fully do?e with the subject promosing a gain to revert to it. He remarked that he alone possessed in all probability the requisite in strument and position to determine the diame ter and map of the new planet. It was an in creased load upon his overborne shoulders. He had not an astrorfbmical clock, and how could he do what was required of him when he could not determine wilhin twenty minutes the time of day. He hoped in time to have it, but now he sometimes felt that could he but raise the required sum he would sell himself, like the man who gambled away his freedom to gratify his passion for gambling. Prof. Mitch ell's Lecture, Cincinnati. A Sinoui.ar Sermon.?Pour gentlemen and an old minister were assailed on the highway by three robbers, who demanded and look pos session ol all their funds. The old minister pleaded very hard to be allowed a Itnle money, as he was on his way to pay a hill in London. The highwaymen, as our authority informs, "being generous fellows, gave him all his money hack again on condition of his preach ing to them a sermon." Accordingly they re tired a little distance from the highway, and the minister addressed them as follows : x Gi.nti.kmen. You are the most like the old apostles of any men of the world, for they were wanderers upon the earth, and so are vou; they had neither lands nor tenements that ihey could call their own, neither, I presume, have you. They were despised ol all, but those of their profession, and so, I suppose, are you; they were unalterably fixed in the principles ihey professed, and I dare say so are you; they were olten hurled into jails and prisons; all of which sufferings I presume have been undergone by you. But in this point, be loved, you differ mighiily; for the apostles as cended from a tree into heaven, where, I am afriad, you will never go; hut as their deaths were compensated with eternal glory, yours will be with eternal shame and misery un less you repent of your sins. An Apt Rfply.?Husband, I don't know, where that boy got his bad temper?not from rne I'm 9ure.' < No my dear, for I don't perceive you have lost any.' A gentlemen unaccustomed to public spea king, becoming embarrassed, whispered to his friend, " (-luick, give a word!" Upon which the other replied, " Yes, yes, what word do you want?"
