THE PltEIDEM'S MESSAGE.
IUoie-CUizen of the Senate and Itoute of Iiepretentativct : The adjournment of the last Congress without making appropriations for the support of the army for the present fiscal year hns rendered necessary a sus pension of pnymeuts to the officers and men of the sums due them for services rendered after the 80th day of June last. Tho army exists by virtue of statutes which prescribe its ntirabcrs and regu late its organization and employment, and which fix the pay of its oltice'rs and men and declare their right to receive the same at stated periods. The statutes, however, do not authorize the payment of the troops in the absence of specific appropriations. Therefore the Consti tution has wisely provided that ."no money sVall be drown from the treasury but in consequence of appropriations made by law ;"' and it has also been- de clared by statute that "no department of tho government shall expend in any one fiscal year any Bum in excess of ap nppropriations made by Congress for that fiscal yew." We have, therefore, au army in service authorize! by low and entitled to be paid, but no funds available for that purpose. It may also be said, as an additional incentive to prompt action by Congress, that since the commencement of the fiscal year the army, though without pay, has been constantly and actively employed in arduous and dangerous service, in the performance of which both officers and men have discharged their duty with fidelity and courage and without com plaint. These circumstances, in my judgment, constitute on extraordinary occasion, re quiring that Congress bo convened in advauce'of the time prescribed by law for your meeting in regular session. The importance of speedy action upon this subject on the part of Congress is so manifest that I venture to suggest the propriety of making the necessary ap propriationsfor the support of the array for the current year at its present maxi mum numerical strength of twenty-five thousand men, leaving for future' con sideration all questions relating to an in crease or decrease of the number of enlisted meu. In the event of the re duction of the army by subsequent legis latiou during the fiscal year, the excess of the appropriation could not be ex pended, and in the event of its enlarge ment, the additional sum required for the payment of the extra force could be provided in due time. It would be un just to the troops now in service, and whose pay is already largely in arrears, if payment to them should be further post poned until after Congress shall have considered all the questions likely to arise in the effort to fix the proper limit to the strength of the army. Estimates of appropriations for the sup port of the military establishment for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1878, were transmitted to Congress by the former secretary of the treasury at the opening of the session in December last. These estimates, modified by the present secretary sa to conform, to present re quirements, are now renewed, amount ing to 832,436,764 98, and, having been transmitted to both Houses of Congress, are submitted for your consideration. There is also required bv the navy department $2,003,861.27. This sum is made up of $1,446,688.16 due to officers and enlisted men for the last quarter of the last fiscal year ; $311,953.60 due for advances made by the fiscal agent of the government in London for the support of the foreign service ; $50 000 due to tho naval hospital fund ; $150,000 due for arrearages of pay to officers and $45, 219.53 for tho support of the marine corps. There will also be needed au ap propriation of 8202,535.22 to defray the nusettled expenses of the United States courts for the fiscal j ear ending June 30 "last," now due to attorneys, clerks, commissioners and marshals, and for rent of court rooms, the support of prisoners and other deficiencies. A part of the building of the interior department was destroyed by fire on the itith of last month. "Some immediate repair and temporary structures have iu consequence become necessary, esti mates fur which will be tiansmitted to Congress immediately, and au appropri ation of the requisite funds is respect fully recommended. Tho secretary of the treasury will oommuuicate to Congress, in connection with tho estimates for tho appropriations for the support of the army for the cur rent fiscal year, estimates for such other defluien(Me3 in the different branches of t'je publio service as require immediate action, and cannot, without inconvenience, be postponed until the regular session. I take this opportunity, also, to invite your attention to the propriety of adopt ing at your present session the necessary legislation to enable the people of the Uuited States to participate iu the ad vantages of the International Exhibition of agriculture, industry and fine arts, which is to be held at Paris in 1878, and in which this government has been in vited b" the government of France to take part . This invitation was communi cated to this government in May, 1876, by tho minister of France at this capital, and a copy thereof was submitted to the proper committees of Congress at its last session, but no action was taken upon the subject. The department of state has received many letters from various parts or the country expressing a desire to participate in the exhibition, and numer ous applications of a similar nature have also, been made at the Uuited States legation at Pari. The " department of sta e has also received official advice of the strong denire O) the port of the French govenment that the United States (should participate in this enter prise, and space has hitherto been, and still is, reserved in the exhibition build ings for the U6e of the exhibitors from the United States, to the exclusion of other parties who have been applicants therefor. Ia order that our industries may be properly represented at the exhibition an appropriation will be needed for the payment of salaries and expenses of commissioners, for the transportation of goods, aud for other purposes in connec tiou with the object in view; and as May next is the time tixed for the opening of the exhibition, if our citizens axe to eh tre the advantages of this international competition for tho trade of other nations the necessity of immediate ac ti m is apparent. To enable the United States to co-operate in the Iuternational Exhibition which was held at Vienna in 1873, Congress then pawed a joint resolution making an appropriation of $2 )0,000, and authorizing the President to uppoiut a certain number of practical artisans and scientific men who should attend the exhibition aud report their proceedings aniL observations to him. Provision was also made for the appoint ment of a number of honorary commis sioners. I have felt tliat prompt action by Congress in accepting the invitation of the government of France is of so much interest to the people of this country, and so suitable to the cordial relations between the governments of the two countries, that the subject might properly be presented for attention at your present session. The government of Sweden and Nor way has addressed an official invitation to this government to take part in the International Prison Congress, to be held at Stockholm next year. The problem which the congress proposes to study how to dimmish crime is one in which all civilized nations have an in terest in common, and the congress of Stockholm seems likely to prove the most importaut convention ever held for the study of this grave question. Under authority of a joint resolution of Con gress, approved February 16, 1875, a commissioner Was appointed by my pre decessor to represent tho Uuited States upon that occasion, and the prison con gress having been, at the earnest desire of the Swedish government, postponed to 1878, his commission was renewed by me. An appropriation of $8,000 was made in the sundry civil service act of 1875 to meet the expenses of the com missioners. I recommend the reappro priation of that sum for the same pur pose, the former appropriation having been covered into the treasury, and be ing no longer available for the purpose without further action by Congress. The subject is brought to your attention at this time in view of circumstances which render it highly desirable that the commissioner should proceed to the discharge jf his important duties im mediately. As the several acts of Congress pro viding for detailed reports from the different departments at the regnlor an nual sessiou, I defer until that time any further reference to subjects of public interest. H. li. Hayes. Washington, October 15, 1877. Buried Alive for Eighteen Honrs. At seven o'clock one Saturday morn ing recently, while Henry Eauch was engaged iu the work of cleaning out a well, forty feet deep, on Stephen Matthews' place, at Painesville, Ohio, the whole side slid in, burying the man alive. The alarm immediately spread all over the village, mid people turned out eu masse, willing to do all in their power to rescue their neighbor. The almost herculean work was placed under charge of the mayor. No one expected to find aught at the bottom of the debris except the mangled corpse, but no less willingly was the work prosecuted. Be lays were formed, and as soon as one man gave out another took his place, A short distance from the surface curb. ing was placed in order to keep the treacherous earth from again falling in, and the work was pushed on. At dark but a little portion of the real work had been done, aud those who had hope of finding the man alive were completely discouraged. It was thought that if he had escaped being crushed or suffocated, he must die of dampness or cold. Rut the work was pushed on vigorously by the light of lanterns and torches. One curb after another wos put down, and the men toiled on. Midcieht came, and most of tho crowd had left, but bucket- tul alter bucketful of stones and earth were constantly ascendintr from the awful pit. At length the bottom was nearly reached, when one of the workmen called out : " Henry, where are you ?" Dis tinctly, inougn inumed by the earth. came the answer : " On the side toward town." During all the terrible eighteen hours he had been iu the living tomb Bauch had kept tho points of the com- Eass in his miud.and this probably saved im at a critical moment. Great care was now taken not to strike the man's head or to permit the debris to cave in around him. In a few moments his head and shoulders, then his whole body was extnfcated. He was given neveral cups of hot coffee and some bread, and after a short sleep was able to walk home. Bauoh's description of his sensations while in the well are verv interestinir. He had not moved a lniiacle, he said, during the time. He had a slight breath ing space afforded him by means of the rope by which he was lowered. One arm bent and raised supported a large btoue, and the stone rested on the back of his neck. He was delirious with ap prehension much of the time, thought of everything he had ever done, prayed and wept, heard the men nt work from the first, and when they stopped once he gave up all hope. It seemed to him he was iu the well a week at least. Where a Uoveiuor Got His Wives. Claiborne F. Jackson, a native of Ken tucky, was once Governor of the State of Missouri. He joined the Southern Con federacy, and died during his term at a farm house opposite the city of Little Bock, among strangers, with' no kind hand of affection near to soothe his pain and rob his deathbed of half its an guish. The most remarkable fact con nected with the history of his life is per haps the statement that he married five sisters in one of the most respectable, wealthy, and distinguished families in the State ; that as soon as one wife would die he would go and marry her rister in reasonable time. Of course, some of them were widows when he married. Iu connection with the marriages there was a standing joke told at the expense of the Governor, which was that when he went to ask the old gentleman's consent 4o marry the last one, the venerable father is report ed to have said : " Yes, Claib., you can have her. You have got them all. For goodness' sake don't ask me for the old woman." A Novel Battle. The other day a novel battle was wit nessed at one of the leading restaurants on Market street, Harrisburg, Pa., ac cording to the Patriot. A large rat by some means got into an empty barrel in the cellar of the place referred to, and was unable to free itself. The barrel was brought out and into it were plaoed two fnll grown f-pecimens of the hard shell crab. The crabs opened the buttle, and "went" for the rodent in fine style. The rat, acting apparently in self-defence, endeavored to ward off the sharp claw thrusts of the shell fish, racking his in stinot, no doubt how to make " deviled" crabs oat of his foes before the fight would be ended. The attack and defense were watched by many interested in natural history, all day long, but before sundown the rat went to the happy feed ing grounds of all rodents the crabs having killed it without being tny the worse for wear.

She is a regular practicing physician, well-to-do and wears a dress unlike anything else in nature a man's trousers, confined at the bottom rather closely, a garment in place of a coat, which is neither coat nor cloak, and a hat which is neither male nor female in char acter. She believes in sun baths, and has built a great bay window in her house wherein to take and administer the same, but her neighbor is building a dwelling to command the bay window, whereupon the doctor has begun the ereotion of a board fence as high as his house. Susie and the Prairie Fire. Just at the meeting-place of a wide prairie and deep forest, stood, many years ago, a little log house. Within dwelt a girl by the name of Susie. She did not live alone, for the house was full with her parents and old er brother and sisters. But my story is of her, the youngest and the pet of all. It would take long to toll the city girls of to-day how Susie lived and knew what it was to be lmppy. When the log house had stood in its place about three yeors, and had been clasped and covered by the clinging arms of the forest vines, Susie noticed one afternoon a great commotion in the household. The neighbors who lived nearest came and talked to her father out in the meadow with hurried, exoited voices, ner brothers hastened to put on their heavy boots and stout leather mittens. While her mother and sisters went round with troubled faces, nil the men hurried off together to the prairie how far she could not see in the gother ing darkness. Soon after, the wind, which came in slight puffs from the direction in which they had gone, brought with it the smell of smoke. " Soy, mamma, where has papa gone, and w'hat mokes everybody look so frightened?" said SiiBie pressing close to her mother's side with the sobs com ing in her voice. ' "Susie, dear, don't be frightened don't cry, but be mamma's little woman. It is prairie fire, aud papa and the boys have gone to help put it out." "Will it come- here, mamma will it buru our house ?" " No, dear, I hope not. It is a long way off, and the men will burn some of the grass, not far from the fields, so that when the big fire comes there it will stop, because thero will be nothing for it to burn." Then her mother hurried away to see that coffee was made and food prepared for the men who would be up all night. Susie stood at the door in the darkness and looked toward the south, where she saw, far away, a dull red gleam, which sometimes flushed up brightly, but more often seemed to her excited fancy like a great fiery snake, crawling toward her home. Ont here lay her lather s corn fields, and there came the dreadful lire, ready to devour them. Then a thought flashed into her mind. Susie was a courageous little girl, and had energy enough for two. Perhaps she might help put out the fire. Her mother and sister were too busy to no tice her movements. Without pausing to think what mamma might wish her to do, she ran through the door-yard aud was soon making her way across the meadow toward the cornfield. At last she reached the end of the field aud looked out on the broken prairie. Stretching out of sight on either hand was a red line of flame rising toward the sky, and covering it with a dense cloud of smoke. The sparks flew in every di rection, and many, yes, very many, were brought by occasional puffs of wind near to where she stood. But she soon made a discovery which caused her to forget the distant fire. Some sparks had Jit iu the dry grass by the rail fence not far away. The grass had kindled aud the blaze was spreading and beginning to curl around the rails, and just ou the other side was her father's cornfield. It was but the work of a moment to find a stout stick, and then Susie's labor be gan. How intently she beat the grass and stamped on it with her little shoes ? She soon found that she was really smothering the flames, aud though her face and hands were hot and her arms ached, she kept on until not one spark was left, and only the burnt grass aud slightly blackened rails were left to show what Susie had done. " But, oh ! I'm so tired," she said. " I wish I could find papa." Her tired limbs soon gave out, and she sank down with sobs which would come into her throat. Alone and in the dark and tired out, no wonder the tears fell as she lay on the grass, until her sobs grew less and sleep shut her eyelids down. After a while, when the fire had been extinguished, her father reached home to find the house in commotion. "Oh, father! have you seen Susie?" said his wife, coming to him with terror in her face. "Susie! is she gone?" he said, hoarse ly, for he was very tired. " She is lost ! We have searched the whole place and called and called, but wo eau't find her anywhere." " Mother," said the oldest daughter, "might she not have followed father to the fields " "The child! the poor darling 1 per haps she did ; and who knows into what danger she has gone ? The wolves are around to-night," and she shuddered with fear. " Mother," said her husband, " she is in God's hunds, wherever she may be. Come, boys, we will search the fields ;" and he hastened out with a lantern, while his sons and neighbors who had returned with him followed with such means of light as they could obtain. It did not take long to trace Susie to her resting-place, for they knew she would follow in the direction she had seen them take. When her father paused not far from the path over which he had passed a short time ago, put the lantern down hastily and took her in his arms, what a shout went up from those who were near ! Her mother and sisters, who had followed the others, crowded around with tears of joy. Awakened by the noise and light, she lifted her head. bewildered, but when she saw her father she said, iu a sleepy voice : ' Papa, I did help put out the fire. I kept it from burning up the corn. " And theu her tired head sank back on his shoulder,and she fell asleep. New York Jrtoune. A farmer-woman in Canada lust fall plowed seventeen acres of land.
