Tub riiBsiDEMT's Message. Wo to
day tesuo tho rrcsidcn'ts Mcssago in nn
extra for our subscribers. This document
is written ns directly by the President us it
was his babit to fight. Though not as po
lished, perhaps, as that of an accomplished
writer, his recommendations are wise, aud
giveu in a pointed add btisineSs liko wny.
It is a clear and satisfactory resume of lliu
affairs of tho nation of the past year, aud
pro-emineutly sensible and dignitied in its
treatment of the important subjects with
Which it deals.
The Cuban question receives a good
share of his attention, and the modest tono
of tho message in reference to I lie .Spanish
Cuban difficulty is greatly to bo commend
ed. In regard to the Virginius affair it is so
decided thai Spain can have no doubt of
the carncBlncss of our government, and
the course already pursued meets with the
hearty approval of tho coutitry.
The President suggests two amend
ments to the Constitution. Tho first to
authorize the President to approve or dis
approve of a portiou of a bill without being
compelled to approve tr disapprove of the
whole of it. To veto part of abill without
destroying tho whole of it. The secoud is
that when Cougrcss is convened for any
special legislation, that during the contin
uance of such extra session it confine all le
gislation to those subjects which the Exe
cutive may from time to bring before it.
In regard to the finances he recommends
that Congress shall prohibit National
Banks paying iutercst ou deposits, by re
quiring them to hold their reserves in their
own vaults ; that national clearing houses
bo established ; that tho Secretary of the
Treasury may issue at any liiao to Na
tional Banks, and of issue, any amount of
their notes below a third of one per cent,
upon the bonds, depositing with the Trea
sury au amount of government bonds equal
to the amouut of notes demanded, under
ccrlaiu forfeiture of interest. Tim l'reai
dent touches tho question of free banking
very Bhyly, but he is not certain that Con
gress should not consider it. lie wants a
resumption of specie payment, but sees no
wny to it until our exports arc equal to, or
in excess of, our imports. He shows by
various statistics that there is too little cur
rency ; that the volume of it lias been per
sistently contracted, while all forms of en
terprise which create wants of more money
have grown enoimously. Nothing could
be more satisfactory to the people than this
recognition of tho fact that the currency is
not sufficient to meet the demands for it.
The foregoing are some of tho most im
portant features of the message, which do
cument contains much matter of interest to
every citizen, and we earusstly suggest
that it be carefully read.
Oxe of the meanest acts of the modern j
Democracy, is that of turning ou their
friends when they fall into trouble. The
latest instauce of this kind occurs iu the
conviction of Boss Tweed. As long as
Tweed was carrying ou his nefarious po
litical operations seudiug public mouey ;
iuto Pennsylvania to influence voters for
the purpose of carrying this State for the
Democracy, all the little Democratic llings
sang Ilosanua uuto Tweed. Since the ;
Boss has got into trouble, and is to havo ,
twelve years of quiet meditation at Sing 1
Sing over his "ways that were dark and
tricks that were vain," and for that luxu-;
ry will bo required to pay his own board at
the rate of SI, 002 50 per year, ins former;
admirers are turning against him, and say
ilservcs him right. Even the two model
Democratic papers in this vicinity, iz : the
Northumberland Count j Dimocrat and the '
Selinagroec Touts, are now
dsuniiucing ;
Tweed, as we did three venra nc-o. ns a '
- j o i
bo as plain then ns it is uow. It looks as
though honesty was nothing with them
party advancement everything. As long
as they could use Boss Tweed for that pur
pose they stood up iu his defence, now they
kick him aside since a court of justice has
decided upon his dishonesty and just puu
ishnicut, as an injurious clcmeut in their
Our neighbor of the Democrat is much
put out about the conversation hetwecu
himself aud the King Calculator which was
published in the Amtriuun last weuk, and
accuses ono of our compositors, ilr. Jacob
Youngman, of being the author of the ar
ticle. Mr. Youngman is cutiraly innocent
in the matter, and knew otliino about the
dialogue uutil it was q type. Wc can as
sure our ncighlv ti,at ho is not correct in
Lis supposi; and tlmt the author is bct
r -0t'nuaiuied n illi tho operations of tho
' iting than is Mr. Youngmau, and he is pre
pared to give some astounding facts iu re
lation to tho Uiug "little irregularities"
iu certain business transactions to which
the editor of tho Democrat was cognizant,
and which he defended in his paper. That
"Erial" was correct in his report of the
conversation between the calculator and
the editor is proven by bis not answering
ourqucitions, aud by tho apology be makes
for not doing so.
The selection of Fernando Wood of New
York, by tho Democrats, as their caudidaio
for Speaker in Congress, does not speak
well for the honesty and reform of tho par
ty. Wood openly favored tho rebellion
was one of the leaders of the corrupt riug iu
New York, of which the chief, Uoss
Tweed, is now in the Penitentiary. Wood,
also, wes in favor of the "Salary Grab,"
and voted ior and pocketed the back pay
during the last" session of Congress, al
though worth his hundreds of thousands,
made as a leader iu the corrupt ring of
New York polities. To endorse Wood a
Las been doue in Lis selection for Speaker,
is to endorse the infamous Salary Giab aud

OrrosmoH to the New Constitu
tion. Our neighbor of tbo Harrlsburg
Telegraph is opposed to tho new Constitu
tion, and assigns Bomo reasons for
that opposition tliat we cons.dcr un
tenable. But what wo deem worse is,
that ho qdbtes from tho Selinsgrovo Times
iu the support of bis opposition. This is
bad policy, to say the least, in a respecta
ble Itcpublicau journal. The Times has
reason for opposing tho new Constitution
that our neighbor of tho Telegraph would
novcr think of cudorsiug. Tho Times never
manifested much regaid for either tho old
State Constitution or that of tho general
government. During the rebellion its sym
pathies were cutirely with Southern Con
stitutions and the Confederate government.
Tho new Constitution being moro liberal
than the old, imposing more restrictions on
corporations, and being more democratic
in tho representation of tho people, would
naturally meet with opposition from that
class of Democrats who prefer tho Demo
cracy of the Calhoun school to that of Jef
ferson, or tho government of the few to the
government of tho many.
But a more serious objection urged by
tho Times is that the new Constitution re
cognizes a Supremo Bi'ing, by adding to
the preamble of the old Constitution the fol
lowing words :
"Grateful to Almighty God for the bless
ings of civil and religious liberty, and hum
bly invoking His guidance," &c.
That this recognition of God should bo
distasteful to that class of inlidels and un
believers, to which the editor of the Times
professes to belong, is not surprising, but
it is surprising that they should make such
objections public iu a Christian communi
ty. But what is still moro absurd is that
these same unbelievers assert that this re
cognition of the Almighty in the new Con
stitution is a declaration in favor of a union
of Church and Slate. A moro villainous
or absurd conclusion could not be drawn.
We venture totay, that in this whole com
munity, embracing every denomination of
Christians, not one individual can bo found
in favor of such a proposition.
Surely those iu favor or "civil and reli
gious liberty" should not object to its in
corporation in the Constitution, cveu
though they refuse to recognize God as ru
Iit of tl" universe.
The New Constitution. The Village
licrord, in an article pointing out a number
of defects in the New Constitution, and also
setting forth the advantages to bo derived
from the reforms made, winds it up as fol
lows :
"These amendments nro of Urn utmost
importance. Their effect will be to check
the tido of official corruption which has
Seemed for a time to bo sweeping every
thing before it, and to threaten the very
existence of our free institutions. The de-
i fects in the new Constitution are trivial in
' comparison with the advantages which will
accrue to public morals and to the public
weal, by the provisions made to procure a
j purer administration of affairs iu ihose
branches of the government most exposed
to demoralizing aud corrupting iullueuecs."
Such seems to be the opinion throughout
the State with but few exception. While
we all would prefer that the defects should
not exist, still as a whole, we consider it far
superior to the old Constitution, and there
! fore we recommend its adoption. Our read
1 crs must bear iu mind that the vote will be
' taken ou it on Tuesday, December ltilh.
As tho King calculator did not furnish
his figures iu time for last week's issue of ,
the JJauovrat, the wood cuts not yet hav
ing arrived, the editor makes the following
apology :
'It will take us two weeks to correct the
Aniericun,n ligurus last week and to under
stand the labored article of over a column
iu connection with the figures. We cannot
answer his article, therefore, till next week.
In the meantime wc will prepare a table of
finance that ho cannot help understand."
We expect this week the Demwral to be
ctnbcllifdicd wilh wood cute explaining how
the Riug didn't steal money ; but as Rrick
Poinroy. that model Democrat says, "tiui-
ply how they committed a few "irreguhiri-

Asourneigiiboroftho Democrat is very

It is uow iu order for those Democratic
papers which, iu commou with the Kepub
licau press, have deuouueed the back-pay
salary grab, to place ou record their views
concerning tho action of the Democratic
Congressional caucus held at Washington
ou Saturday, whereat a resolution favoiing
the repeal of the bill was voted down by a
two-thirds majority. It will be mighty in

Tub Monetary Difficulties of the
World. The London Times, in itsartlclo
of tho 27th of October, gives tho following
explanation of the fact that there are finan
cial troubles in many countries at once :
It will perhaps be asked how it is' that
while money, like water, has tho constant
teudoncy to find a level, there can bo a
simultaneous scarcity iu all tho chief places
of the globe t The answer is that probably
at no previous period has llicro been bo
simultaneous a hoarding. , Not only has
tho improvident absorption in England
been beyond any former precedent, but
there is reason to believe that in America,
Spain aud France, from dillerent causes,
the process has leen on a still more unu
sual scale ; while iu Germany, although the
gold coinage is gradually paid out in ex
change for the old silver circulation, this
silver circulation is retained by the govern
ment, and practically amounts to a hoard
ing of tho-wealth obtained from Franco.
If there should be a return to pacific and
orderly government on the Continent, a
period of unsurpassed abuudauce would
probably bo witnessed, tho eflecls of the
American panic being certain to subside in
due course ; but the sigus in France give
little hope of such a consummation, aud
hence, although on this side the tendency
may be toward a recovery of steadiness,
there can in the relations between trade
and the money market be no ground ou
which, for the present, calculations can
be based with auy approach to certainty.

An Old tier man H'einnn Attacked.
For tho past twenty-fivo yonrs an old
German woman, whoso name Is supposed
to be Catharine Krohl, but who was famil
iarly kuown as "Old Aunt Katrinn,'.' has
occupied a building in what is kuowu as
"Peel's Hollow," which is situated in the
First ward ftud below Mish's farm, above
Eleventh street. She was s freebooter, ns
no one ever asked her for rent and no one mo
lested her. Why she lived all alone in bucIi a
secluded place no olio kuows. puo was m
oflensives and attended to her own busi
ness, and is between 70 and 80 years of age.
Nono of tho people in the vicinity seem to
know anything of her antecedents or her
business, and no one would havo thought
there was any danger of her beiug molest
ed. Last eveninc word was brought to the
Mayor's office that she had been brutally
beaten, and was lying in a precarious con
dition in the building she called her home.
As Coroner Porter's wagon was away on
another rrrend, Chief of Police Hoopes,
Coroner Porter and Dr. G. W. lluedi, pro
ceeded on foot to the locality where the old
and inollensive woman was found lying ou
the bed. with a bloody apron over her head,
besmenred Willi filth and nlmost dead.
Near the door was a pool of blood, and
blood was splattered aioiiud the room.
They took the door oil' tho hinges, placed
her on it. and with tho assistance of other
parties conveyed her to tho city liosp'tul.
After cutting oil' her hair it was discovered
that there were nt least live or six wounds
inllictsd on her head, supposed to have
been made with a boat pole with an iron
end on it, which was found in close prox
imity to wliere she was found. Her head
was almost black from the bruises and cuts.
Sim was properly washed, dressed, aud her
injuries attended to.
It is reported that two colored men were
seen lurking in the vicinity on Wednesday,
and it is supposed they are the parlies who
made the attack. j
What object tho assailants had in view J
is hard to 'imagine. The house or hovel i
was not prepossessing iu appearance, and I
was iu a fearful filthy and disgusting con-
dition. It was evident that the old lady'
was not in nnsstFsinn of monev. or she ;
would not have remained in such a seclud-1
ed spot or lived iu such an abject condition.
From the position iu which she was found,
in close proximity to the door, it is sup
posed the assailing parties attempted to
force tho door and were resisted by the old
ladv on the inside. '
The pole, especially tho iron portion, '
seems to be covered wilh blood, and spots ,
of blood are Blattered over the wooden
part. T'' woolen hood which Mrs. Krohl
had on her head is anu.t saturated with

A special from London nives further par
ticulars of the loss of tho Ville du Havre.
On the night of 'Jlst November there was
a heavy sea on, but bright and starlight.
The captain went below at inidniLht, leav
ing the second officer of the ill-lated sleam

deep and from twenty-live to thirty feet !
wide. The exact position of the Ville du
Havre at the lime was hit. 47 21 ; long.

A TEUiiir.i.i: SCENE.
A panic tcok possession of the passengers,
l'ive minutes after tlw collision the main
and mizzen masts fell across the two large
boats, which were filled w ilh people aud
ready for launching. The boats were
1 cms bed, nnd many of their occupants kill
I cd and iujured.
! Miny passengers were too much terrified
' to try to savo themsevles. Many prayed
and many laid dowu wi'.h the calming of
uiter despair. Some, hearing water pour
ing into the ship, never quilted their slate
rooms. Whole families thus weut down
In the brief interval between the collision
and the sinking of the steamer the crew
were able to launch only a whale boat nnd
the captain's gig. The Lockearu went a
mile before stopping. Shu then got out
four boats to pick up tho people struggling
iu the water. Meantime the whale boat,
under the command of the second lieuten
ant of the Ville du Havre, picked up one
load of those who were clinging to planks,
spars, etc., and took llietu lo Ihe Lochearn.
.She returned to the sceuo and rescued uu
olher load.
Captain Surmount, who remained on
deck to tho last, was rescued by this boat
three-quarters oran hour alter the collision.
0ne of lig otiit.L.r8 swam a mile to ihe Loch
, enrll ulllj WiXi hauled on board with a rope.
The boats ciiutinued to search the waters
iu the vicinity of the disaster until there
was no hope of saving more lives.
