The Americau Organs not on ly have the Wind-Chest or Sound Box but hare the large Organ Bellows, giving p*-®4 eua sIct,L 6««wu nees oi tone.

Then, In fineness ol workmanship, finish of action, and case, they excel all others. Theso great improvements and snperiorlty of tone and wormanshlp of the Amer can Organs place them in the fro nt rank as the best and command a higher price than any other reed in strument In the market. A careful examination oi them, in comparison with others, will quickly show their superiority. Special attention iscalled to the style of the Amer ican Organ, No. 17, containing the Super-Octave Coupler and Sab-Bass.

Hf~ Beading Matter on all Feur Paces. Supplement to tbs Daily Press. We publish this morning a supplement con taining Senator Trumbull’s great speech on the Veto Message; the President’s remarka ble speech on the 22d February, which may be regarded as an informal message to Con gress an$ to the nation; and that portion of Senator Fessenden’s speech on I he 23d Febru ary, in which be states his views upon the question of reconstruction. We have already published the veto message. The documents which are now laid before our readers exhibit fully the divergence, which has become pain fully apparent, between the views of the Presi- . den. and of the majority in Congreas. We de sire to call special attention to Mr. Fessen den’s clear and forcible presentation of the rights and powers of Congress in the present extraordinary circumstances. A Ghost Story. IWs desire to add to thee Election oi attested mar vels with wl lob Mr. Robert Dale Owes has favored the public of Into years, the following narrative. It oomes to ns only at second hand. We can bear wit ness to the general good Judgment of “D.,“ who, by repeating Col. “K.V* story, seems to endorse that 01 doer’s character for veracity and good sense.—Es,] One night as a party of officers, In the woods of Louisiana, sat around a camp firs, the talk turned upon sounds and sights, unac countable and apparently supernatural, when Col. K. of the 15th X. H., told the following #ory: When quite a young man, there was in the town in which he then lived, a house with the reputation of being haunted; for that reason it had been uninhabited for a long time. With two ofhls friends, young men like himself be determined to ascertain if there was any foun dation for Its bad character, and they went to the house to spent a night It wa3 a large two storied building, In the old fashion, and in good condition. Fronting on the street, the door in the centre, two win dows on each side, and the front stairs run ning up from the door, with a landing at top, and the attic stairs running up from that, at right angles with the lower flight nate at nignt, as they were sitting in the front room, at the right of the door, around a table, reading and talking, they were suddenly startled by a loud noise like that of a large log of wood falling from the roof rpon the attic floor, and then rolling end over end down the stairs to the landing, with a momentary stop there, then down the flight in the same way, with an emphatic bang upon the floor at the bottom. At the same moment, the door of thefr room opened with a rush,their lights were instantly extinguished without apparent cause, and. they were left in profound darkness and silence, except that they were conscious of some presence in the room, by the sound or feet pacing with soft steps and measured tread around the table, outside their circle. The steps were those of a quadruped and large, as they judged by the sound, which was like the r * - f a* j Vp«fnnTiclland nog. A ms continued for ttfo or ffiree Mt a _0rd being spoken, when K. took a match to relight the candles. At the movement, their myster ious visitor went out of the room with a rustl ing sound, as at the entrance, and again, the house was perfectly silent. The party, taking their candles, searched every part of the house, from attic to cellar, and found windows and doors all bat, and no thing out of place. The attie door was fiut, and there was no log ot wood at the bottom of the stairs, where they had no doubt of Bud ding one,nor were there any marks whatever on the stairs Indicating the rough passage of saeh a thing over them. The sound upon the stair* was as if they were almost smashed at every bound of the body whatever it was—upon them. They could discover no cause whatever, for > the exhibition which they had witnaeaied, nor did they ever obtain the slightest doe to it _ D. The Government and the Sight Hour Move ment. The following, which we cut from a recent issue of The Nation, contains a number of very sound suggestions, very well put, whieh we commend to the careful consideration of the advocates cf this specious but mischiev ous project: The advocates of the eight-hoar movement are making an effort to have the wot king-day restricted to eight hours in all Government yards and workshops, which is a very good idea if Government can afford it, as it cannot until it has paid its debts. Nor has it any right to pay any ot its employees more than the market price tor a fair day’s labor as long as the rest of the community is working to the utmost extent of its powers, in order to meet the heavy burden of taxation under which we are now laboring. The day when it will be established as a precedent that the Govern ment is authorized to pay men full wages for a short day’s labor will witness the unsealing of a great fountain oi corruption. There are not many steps from this to the establishment of Louis Blanc’s “national workshops*” It is hoped, we are told, that the example of the Government will exercise a “moral influ ence” on other employers, and lead them to do likewise. If the question were simply a moral one, this might be a legitimate way of pricking the consciences of hardened capital ists. But the doctrine that men have to work ten hours a day owing simply to the greed or hard-heartedness of capitalists is an unfair as sumption. In democratic countries, people are supposed to work for what length ot time yiey please. The argument that American workmen have to submit to the demands of capitalists in order to save their families from starving, means simply that they are, as re gards this, in pretty much the same fix as i nine-tenths or the human race, though in many other respects better oft We are all, who have not inherited wealth, cr accumulat ed it by past industry, working to keep our selves and others dependent on us from starv ation, and if we work to the fall extent ol our powers, it simply proves that society requires it of us, and that the world has not acquired sufficient, wealth to allow of the human race maintaining itself on nan «'■ There is only one way in which these 0* . mauds can be rendered less Injurious, and that is bv reducing the community to a condition of contentment like that of the natives of the tropics, for whom a few mtmgoes a day anda cotton rag twice a year, flU the cup of bilsa to the brim- Capitalists, when they get all the labor they can for their money without injur ing the powers of those who work lor them, fuftill the only condition on which capital can be either preserved or Increased, and It Is their first duty to increase it; and in our opin ion, in a free country like this, where every man has the unbridled use of his faculties, Providence has so arranged it that In doing this they shall serve the best interests of those around them. Hut the eight-hour men have not, after all, faced the real question, and that is—-how do you propose to enable capitalists who are reached by your law to compete with those who are not: and how do you propose to pre vent those who own capital from transferring it to other places as soon as your law begins to diminish their profits? The Augusta Farmer says the cause of the hog cholera is eating more than the animal esn well digest, and salt and coal are recom mended as proper remedies and preventives to be kept at all times within reach of the swine.
