Something keener than American brain ht.th recovered our prosperity; something higher than the Amer ican plow hath cultivated the luirvests; some thing sharper than the American axe hath hewid down our forests; something heavier than the American hammer hath built our cities. He who walked by Genesaret hath traversed our lakes; He who helped Simon Peter with his net hath blessed our fisheries : He who plucked the ears of com, rub bing them in his hands, hath helped gather our harvests : He who planned and defended Jerusalem nam niuil ourenies; ne who tamed r.i nciiiany bath set all around us the vtllngus. ot a ship's keel but He helped set it, or a wlieclVtyre but lie helped forge It, or a bUekw heat-blossom but He grew it. or a robin's if lug but He tinged It.

Chief Easley, of tho naval bureau of con struction and repair, reports the amount ap propriated for the fiscal years of 1879-80 as rll.'jijO.OOO; the amount expended, S1.-100 000. The report gives the present number and class of vessels comprising our navy ai follows: In commission steamers, 29; sail ing vessels, 4: monitors, 8; torpedo boats, 3 total, 43. In ordinary steamers, 18; sailing vessels 8; monitors, 1. Keceiving ships steamers, 3; sailing ships, 3; monitors, 1. Store ships steamers, 1 ; sailing ships, 3. On stocks steamers, 5; sailing, 1; monitors, 4; irou-clads, 3. Repairing steamers, 9. At the naval academy sailing ships, 3; moni tors, 1. Public marine school sailing ships, 1. Tugs of all kinds at yards and stations, 2o; total number of ves sels, 149. In concluding the rejiort Chief Ka.-ley says: "A brief inspection of the fore going vessels will show the necessity of an increase in the number of efficient vessels for the navy. The finishing of five monitors and two cruising ships now commenced, and the improvement and repairs to the Dictator, arc ot the hrst importance. I respectlully rec ommend the building of two armed ships of displacement of 5000 tons each, and two un armed guuboats, having a displacement of 700 tons. The estimated cost of these vessels under this bureau is $2,900,000, but an ap propriation of only $150,000 will be required for the first year." The appropriations asked for this bureau during the next session of congress are summed up as follows: For the preservation and repair of vessels, purchase of tools, ma terials, etc., finishing the New York and .Mohican, and repairing the Dictator, 2,500, 000; for building three gunboats and com mencing work on two armored cruising ships, 1,500,000; for finishing and repairing the monitors Terror, Puritan, Ampbitrite, Mo nadniHk and Miantoiuiah, $3,122,830; total appropriations asked for, $7,122,H3(.. Chief Shock, of flie bureau of steam engineering, reports the amount appropriated for the fis cal year ending June 30, ISSOjjfSOO.OOO, and the total amount expended, 5 94,013. The departments under the cognizance of this bureau at the several navv-yards are re ported to be in good working condition. Commodore Jefie'rs, chief of the bureau of ordnance, submits estimates for the fiscal year 1881 and 1SS2 aggregating $300,001. He says: "Our first and most pressing want is guns of the latest and most approved system. At present our ships are principally armed with smooth bores or smooth bores converted into rifles. These converted guns have proved very safe and efficient, and use higher charges than before conversion, giving greatly increased velocity, range and accuracy. The progress of gnn construction has been so great as to reduce to second-class the entire armament of the navies of the world. But this has been so recent that only model guns have been made, and there is not at this time a single ship afloat armed with a tvpc of effective ord- I nance. He reoommt-nds the use of a larger rial of machine guns as of great value against attacks of torpedo boats." POSTAL ORDKR. An order was issued by Postmaster-General Maynard to-day raising the following postofficcs to the grade of "Presidential" offices from and after the 1st of January next, with salaries for future incumbents as follows: Minersville, Pennsylvania, $1100; Mt. I'lcasant, Pennsylvania, $1400; Lancas ter, Wisconsin, $2100; Sheboygan Falls, Wis consin, $1100; Stougliton, Wisconsin, S1300; l'errv, Iowa, $1200; Odebolt, Iowa, $1200; West Point, Nebraska, $1100; Fredonia, Kansas, $1200; Arkansas City, Kansas, $1200. TH CURRENCY. Treasurer (iilfitlar. holds that the fact that banks are retiring their circulation and tak ing out their bonds is good evidence to show that our currency is now elastic, and the de mand regulated by the needs of trade, rather than bv the price of bonds. TiltS Si 1'UKMK BENCH. Justic Clifford is a Democrat of the old school. He vowed some years ago he would not retire from the I'nited States supreme bench unless he could be succeeded by a Democrat. But for this he would have rattled three years ago. Now he is overtaken with the infirmities of age, and will probably never again be able to take his scat on the bench. Some say that he is imbecile, but he still has sense enough left to remem ber his resolution, and to stick to it. Justice Hunt is also in a phvsical condition which mav preclude his ever going on the bench again. He cannot retire at his present age and will not resign. In view of these cir cunistanccs, there is a movement being in atiguratcd to induce congress to appoint twi additiotv.il justices. This would make the court ci.miiosed of eleven, instead of nine members, luit tlie proviso is 10 be added that no further Yacat'Cjf is to bo lllied until the court Is reduced below nine members. This seems to be the onlv wav to dispose of himself printed, and members draw money as they may need it. A member may hue 1.. i,:j'..,i;'i simvi,., niM n ,,,1 ; t .3. t tin small installments. He leaves it with Thompson, precisely the same as he would leave it in a bank, subject to his check. When one cortcmplates the amount of money each congressman is entitled to draw; ana multiplies tne amount ny zwo ne can ap preciate the extent of the banking business done by the serjeant-at-arms. When it U further contemplated that members, or tne general run of them, leave a large balanp. to their credit in the hand of the screeant-at- arms, he can also realize what a hand- j some balance in the Aggregate there is in this congressional bank. Now if a serge an t-at-arms were disposed to be dishonest, or waa of a ventursome turn of mind, he could get away with many thousands of dollars and never be detected until he was relieved of his office and compelled to make a final state ment to turn over to his succtsor; and admit that he waa dishonest and had carried on through a series of years extensive specula tions, and was found out, the very pertinent question would be: What are the defrauded members going to do about it? The sergeants at-arnm's bond is only nominal, and is not amenable to members of congress, but only to the United States. In point of law tha treasury of the United States pays congress; but by a custom of the house the sergeant-at-arms acts as a messenger for the members to draw it from the treas ury, and retains it until such times aa they want to check it out. A dishonest sergcant-at-arms could continue to practice dishonesty just so long as members had faith in his honesty, and there would be absolutely no chance to discover dishonesty until he waa either ready to vacate and settle up, or in the improbable contingency that every mem ber should, on some stated day, check out the full amount to his credit, and thus cause a run on the bank. It is in view of the tempta tion to dishonesty that Treasurer Gilfiilan urged congress a year ago to frame a law providing that the aereeant-at-arms should give a bond of at least $100,000, in view oM. the millions which pass through his hands in 1 a fiscal year.

Arrival of Fattier ftavnzai. Nbw York, November 28. Father Ga vazii, a noted Italian clergyman, arrived to day. He comes to collect funds for the sup port of the noted Free church of Italy. Father Gavazzi was advertised to speak dur ing the day in three churches. His steamer, the Algeria, some days overdue, arrived in the morning, and he was thus enabled to ap pear according to announcement. He was accomnanied by Signor Arrighi, the repre sentative of the Free church in Italy in this country, and by Kev. John N. Thompson. The latter will accompany Father Gavazzi in a tour through this country, and will re turn with him to Italy next August. Father Gavazzi, in his discearee to-day, gave a history of the origin and organization of the Free church in Italy, and said that it had now thirty-six churches, thirty-five mission ary stations, fifteen pastors, fifteen lay preach ers, 1800 communicants, 2085 children in schools under twenty-one teachers, and 800 Sunday-school scholars. They also had sev enteen students in their theological seminary, which is located within 400 yards of the Vat ican at Home, and two professors. There are now five different Protestant evangelizing agencies in Italy, the Baptist. American Kpis eopalian, Weslevan Anglis, Waldensians and Free churcg of Italy, the last two being sup ported by the Presbyterians and Congrega-tioualiats.

The Missouri State immigration society, of which Ex- Lieutenant Thomas W. Fitch, son-in-law of Generel Sherman, is president, has issued an address to the business men of St. Loum, set ting forth what the society has already ac complished, and asking material aid to assist itincarrvingout its plana for the future. The society has issued a limited number of a pamphlets called The Hand-Booi uf Miaouri, which contains a condensed description of the developed and undeveloped resources of every county in the State.

They also wish to issue a German edition of it, and to establish immigration agencies in England, Scotland, Ireland and Germany. The society will be incorporated this week and fully organized under the laws of the State for active and effective work. Prominent and influential citizens of this city and all parts of the State are interested in the work. Auxiliary soci eties will be organized in every county, and a united effort will be made to induce a large immigration to Missouri the coming spring. Worshiping Clrant Rather Than dad. New York, November 29. General Grant and Ex-Minister Komero, of Mexico, attend ed service to-day in Rev. Mr. Beecher's church, (Brooklvn). The congregation be came aware of the presence of the dis tinguished gentlemen, and remained iu their seats after the benediction and doxology. Mr. Beecher informed tha people Uiat ser vices were ended and asked that they leave the church. There was yet no manifestation of a disposition on the part of the congrega tion to leave before Grant and Romero. Mr. Ueecher then said: "This house is for the worship of God, and not of man," and ap pealed to the assembly to disperse. The seata being still retained Grant and Romero took their departure, and were quickly fol lowed by the whole congregation. A Bov'a Heroism. Jersey City, November 29.

To better illustrate how the office of the ssrgeant-at-arnis is ad ministered, it is ne' i - . to explain its workings. Thero are 293 "members of the house. The monthly pay of each congress man is something over $417. This makes an aggregate for the -yiiole of $122,181 each month, or ;n year over $1,300,000, and yet fox (he handling of this vast sum of money and its honest disbursement, congress is wholly at Uie aiercv of the honestv of the inouBtDcfH who holds the office. The bond of $.1000 or $10,000 is given to secure the United States for direct appropriations made for traveling committees and incidental ex penses of congressional committee. Hence, when a fixed Bum-ev $10,000 for purposes of illustration- is voted for acummittee. the treasurer oi the United States will pay over to the frorgeant-at-arais, upon the requisition of tho speaker, a sum of money equal to the amount of his kind, aud will not pay more than that until he submits tohe treasurer all the vouchers covering the expenditures which have been paid equal to tho amount . i titi .1 i lurqeii over. u ucn luese I UIII mill are auuue.i uie irea.-urcr win agan, av over an ground o insolvency ' installment equal to the bond, but will in no u to wind lip affairs. ! caae exceed il. Vlence the United Su:. - i ortned iu November, always secure. The laxitv of the law is that . uo saicguara is provided lor trie members of congress. Let a hypothetical case be stated, I and to better serve the illustration let John O. Thompnon, the present strgeant-at-arms, be cued. ithout attempting to impute any dishonesty to Mr. Thompson, he will appre ciaite as readily as a member of congress how strong a temptation there is even for an hoewt man. To begin: No half of the members of congress draw their pay with any regularity. There may be a dozen a day, or twenty, or forty, or sixty, or mere who give a draft for the full amount of their pay for a month. These the speaker will approve. Upon these drafts Thompson Will go to the treasury and draw the money. This he w ill deposit in his safe at the capitol. This gives the sergeant-alarms s nucleus bi do a banking business, and thin is what he does no more or less. To aoooutmodate inc tubers he has checks upon HARRY J.
