IK. IK. It. GALLAUER, L'dttor. Charlmtuun, Jefferson County, ll'csl Vo. December 13, 1SS3. THE PRESIDENTS MESSAGE. The President's Message submitted to Con gress on Tuesday of last week opens with a ci tat >n of our friendly Foreign relations, the ma king of e>>nsu!ar and commercial treaties with Servia. Uoumauia, Corea and Madagascar, a boundary survey treaty w ith Mexico and an ex tradition one with Spain. A Commission is suggested to consider our interest in British North American fisheries—as the fisheries arti. dot in the Treaty of Washington will termi nate July 1, 'So. Revision of legislation is urg. ed touching the deportation of paupers hither from England—as present application of the law is ineffectual. Congress is urged to recotu j*ense the expert commission appointed to in vestigate, especially for Germany’s enlighten ment, the alleged injuriousness of American swine products. France has repealed its legis lation against American swine. A new marine treaty to remedy the present hardships of A merican ships in Mexican waters is (tending.— The re-survey of the Rio Grande— Pacific boun dary has been completed and Congress should prepare for re-locating the boundary tyonu- | uients. The appointment of a consul-general at each of the South American capitals i> re commended. The Bolivia-Chili-Peru contest has changed to one <>f negotiation wherein our counsels are prevailing. The modification of the Hawaiian reciprocity treaty is urged. Le gations have been established in Persia, Siam and Corea. The Chin esc-restrict ion law has been violated by the Chinese in their duties of certifying that immigrants thither belong to accepted classes. Provision is urged upon Congress for exercising discretionary Executive ' power in appointing delegates to chance Euro- I pcau congresses. The Treasury surplus has ! hitherto been used in reducing the national «leht and hence the 3 (>er cent, bonds (amount ing to 305 millions) are the only outstanding bunds redeemable at the mv mment’s ideas ure. The 41 and 4 j*cr its. are not payable till ls‘.*l and l'J07. If the Treasury surplus contin ues large the 3 per cents, may be redeemed in 1487. The 41 per cents, may be paid at matu rity and the funds for 1 per cents, be in the Treasury years before it i- needed. This rapi l extinguishment oftht debt, however, is unwise 1 beeatueof the high taxation it renders neces sary. In view of recent statutes decreasing the tax revenue fifty or sixty millions its further ditninishment at this si --ion is unadvi.-able. A part of the present surplus revenue might be applied to rebuilding our navy. Important changes are urges! in the law controlling the circulation of national bank currency, as the probable effect of such an extensive retirement of those securities which'are the basis of this circulation would be to contract its volume and produce embarrassments. The enactment is recommended of a law repealing tax on circu lation and permitting banks to issue notes for an amount equal to 90 per cent, of the market value. It is urged that the Trade Dollar be ta ken at the Treasury and at the mints as bul lion at a small percent, above the current rates. The 12*5 internal revenue collection districts have been reduced by consolidation to 83. The reduction is urged of local letter postage to one cent. Executive objection is noted to any scheme for placing the country’s telegraphic lines under Post Office control, while govern ment supervision over inter-state line is recom mended. The law fixing the fees of jurors, witnesses, district attorneys and marshals in Federal courts sh >uld bo revi d—the latter being given 'itone. Congress is asked to consider the feasibility of Fislcrol aid to public primary education. The repeal of the act fash ioning Utah’s present government is urged, the territorial control then f to he given to»'.>n gress, which should appoint a special commis sion to rule. The placing of Alaska under the Federal law's protection is strongly urged.— Congress should protes t the people in their in tor-State traffic against injustice from railway cor* rations. The protection of fori*sts on the public domain is recommended. The efforts of the civil service commission have thus far prov ed beneficial. An early interpretation by Con gress of the constitution's ctau-c rt gulatingthe presidential sue* cssion is urged. Legislation is askcii to supplement the guarantees given the colored man in the 11th amendment—recently held void by the Courts. CiX-UOTcmor iaix? iiucKimrn, oi sven t;l ky, went to Talmage’s Brooklyn Taber nacle and was invited to the platform, whereupon, it is s.ud, o.ihhi voices began to aing, “ While the lamp holds out to burn, ’ ice.—Exchange. Kentucky’s tate Executive, above al luded to, had a touch of tender feeling for unfortunates that prompted him to the fre quent exercise of the pardoning power, and himself to he the subject of clemency from on high would not be an unreasonable ex- ! j - ration—though we have no doubt he ha higher aud surer grounds upon which to ) base bis hope. Democratic representatives should paste ‘ on their desks this closin ’ utterance of Sun set Cox in Caucus : “ ’M depends upon the wi-dom with which we exereis the duties of this Congress, Without a wise forecast and discreet hor«*scope wo will be * derelict, laeatenand discomfited. * r * Remember! that '84 depends upon our wisdom and dis cretion.” The Republicans of the Senate have taken Senator Mahone into full fellowship, t- indicated by their reception of him in Caucus.

The place made vacant by Li* absence has Ken tilled. Miss Carrie Martin received injuries which may prove fatal in Jumping from a second-story window of a burning dwelling at 112 Boundary avenue, Baltimore, on Monday morning.
