From Washington—President's Message.
There is still no organization of the House,
but the Telegraph informs us that the Presi
dent communicated his Message lo Congress
on last Monday morning. It took all by sur
prise, and after a long debate, the House re
fused to read the Message and adjourned. The
particulars and Message we hope to be able to
to lay before our readers in our next.
Frank Leslie. Some tune since this indi
vidual sent us a circular requesting a notice
of his forth coming "Illustrated Paper," and
promising ns an exchange in cas we gave
the paper such a notice. This we done, bul
Frank has forgotten his part of the bargain.
We recommended his "I llusiraled Paper," lo

The publishers,. determined not to be outdone

to illustrate every number after the popular
style of Harpers, end the Jonuory No., now
out, contains the fust part of asketch of "Bur

tinguished historian, John Frost, with five
illustrations, fully equal to Iho.-e found in the
lest eastern works. A History of Odd-Fellowship
in the United States is also commenced
in this number which will run through the
entire volume. This blending of Odd-Fellowship
with general literature cannot but
prove attractive lo the members of the Order
and their families. lis -contents consist of
Tales, Essays, moral ai.d scientific, Histori
cal sketches, and the usual variety of a fi ra

No More Old maids or Bachelors! We
shall hear no more of such things. Old maids
will be unknown. Old bachelors will be
out of the question. Professor Rondout, of
New York, the famous philosopher, has wholly
ended celibacy, by his great book on the "bliss
of Marriage." He unravels the whole mys
tery of love. He dissects it scientifically.
He gives not only i'.s character and substance,
but, alas for the would-be single I he betrays
the astonishing secret of how lo win the af
fections of any person you desire in spite of
their reluctance. Jolly time for the parsons!
The book is advertised in.our paper to-day.

mrTbe Catholic Herald, of Philadelphia,
lamenting the decrease of t' eir priests, says
they cannot hope at present to supply their
ranks from this country, as "one of the last
pursuits Catholic parents, rich or poor, are
likely to desire for their children, is the minis
try of Roman Catholicism." It also states,
that, while the main portion of Ihe supply has
been of Irish origin, that is now on the decline,
as "every year brings less priests than the
proceeding year did."

Peace in Kansas.
The country will rejoice lo learn, says the
Statesman, that every mail brings con'inued
evidence of the restoration of peace and civil
order in Kansas I Whatever may have been
the moving causes of the troubles, it is not
worth while now to Inquire a full report or
the whole matter most come before Congress,
and upon the facts thus stated, the verdict of
the people will be made up.
But let us all rejoice Ibat the heated and
excited ftelings of both parties have been
controlled by reason and judgement, by patri
otism, and love of order. Thus, while the
old world is convulsed from centre to circum
ference with civil wars to rettle their differ
ences; even the rude squatters on our frontiers,
and the most exci'.ed partizans, upon the most
etching topic in our conlnversies, are able to
meet and seUle nil these troubles by an ap
peal to reason, judgement and law. Popular
sovereignty, instead of being a humbug and a
bye-word, as demagogues hoped, by getting up
this excitement, 'has-most signally trinmphed
and given another instance to the world,
that the people are capable of selfgovernment.
The Ingrate Blair.
Frances P. Blair, formerly the faithful journal
ists of Gen. Jackson's administration, has gone
over a series of steps downward to the ranks
of black republicanism. He commenced
his descent in 1848, when he gave his support
to Vau Buren, and now he has written a let
tei in which he misrepiesenls Jefferson, mis
quotes the constitution, and makes a sophist of
himself, in order to sustain his sbolililonism.
Under the inspiration of Jackson, Mr. Blair
stood high among the Democracy of his coun
try. But as a follower of Seward and Garri
son, he sinks into the c'orkness out of which
they themselves appear lighted only by that
light which attends the fallen angels. If as
an abaditionist he expects to make his mark
upon his country, let hi.n remember that even
Jackson could not have sustained himself in a
similar position. Let him remember thai it is
not Jackson the abolitionists whom the coun
try now adores, but Jackson the patriot, who
rose in his might against nulificalion in every
fo'.m, and for the perpetuation of the Union.
Mr. Blair's letter wilt do no harm. Hiorn
of his iocks long ago by the charmer of frce
soilism, he now seems mean among the meanest.
An Honest Confession.
That Know-Not hingism con never be sus
tained by the enlightened portion of the peo
ple of this country, is a fact beyond question,
and that it never has been sustained by en
lightened men, except for selfish purposes,
is equally true. There are many who gave
the Know-Nothing candidates support at the
late election, who have embraced the earliest
opportunity to wash their hands of the foul
stain, by disclaiming, to hold any sympathy
for the principles of that order. Among these
is the editor of Ihe Philadelphia Daily News,
who in his issue of the 16lh ult.,uses the fol
lowing emphatic language ;
" 1 he truth of the matter is, as we have
renea'edlv asserted. Know-Nolhingism is in
extreme bad odoor; it stinks in the nostrils of
all who do not belong to the Urder, wa 01
vast number who 00."
Fighting the Isms on his own Hook.
T. B. Stevenson, of Kentucky, an influen
tiat Whig, has written a iorcibte letter, in
which he iltclares that he shall fight, "on his
own hook," "the amalgamated fauaticism and
treason of Abolitionism and Know-Nothing-15111."
He thus writes of Know Nolh'uigism:
"I cannot subscribe to such doctrine or
policy, and until 1 forget that God, renoumce
1 he laws of Moses and Jesus, ignoieii Repub
licanism, repudiate the Constitution, and de
spise Hit pol'Cy,pesce, prosperity and glory of
the countty, 1 shall not cease lo resist them
by whatever appropriate means a good and loy
al ciiizen may lawfully oppose to such out
landish ueatheniam; for certain it is that such
doctrines could not originate in this land of
civil and religious liberty, but were excogitat
ed by the arch enemy of mankind, and first
promulgated 111 the dark ages of the unciviliz
ed and unchnsininized people 01 some distant
la nils. It is a butles'jue lo attempt lo dignify
such doctrines with Ihe name of "American.'
The Democracy Moving.

colled in theStatesand at the limes following,
for the purpose of appointing delegates to the
National Convention at Cincinnati:
Florida Third Wednesday in April.

The True Course.
The Detroit Free Press, In republishing an
article upon the propriety of allowing oil the
delegates flora oil the Stales to meet at the
national convention in Cincinnati nnins'.ruct-
ed, cordially endorses that course. It says:
"If the delegates of the Democracy of all
the Stales shall go to Cincinnati untrannneled
wilh instructions, carry wilh tnem and en
forcing the desire of the national Democratic
party that u candidate slull be selected with
a view solely to his eminent qualifications ond
sterling national principles, the end will be
glorious triumph in November."
IVrThe Taunton Gazette, in alluding to the
inconsistency of the anti-Nebraska men, says:
"It is a singular fact, that the some presses,
which throughout Gov. Reeder'slerm of office
were incessant in their demands upon the
President to send troops into Kansas, to co
operate wilh the governor of tne terrilory
Ihe enforcement of law and order there, are
now the organs which in hot haste denounce
the administration for any compliance which
it may hereafter yeild to Governor Shannon,
who has made a request which Gov. Keeder
never officially presented. It would be
vain to expect fait treatment from them of any
questions growing out 01 tne wnoie suujeci
and Kansas itself, if it cannot settle its own
controversies, mutt look lo otlurr parties than
such as have, bv ill advised and mischeivous
aid societies, contributed so much of the in

adjournment having been effected until
Wednesday, members may become more plac
ab.e under the sofliinin influences of Chirst
mas Dinners, and be willitg to give up their
differences and unile in the election of Mr.
Banks to the Speakership. Much as such a
result is to be deprecated, he is undoubted1)
the ablest man nair.ed by the opposition.
Fuller and his friends still labor under the
miserable hallucination that the Democrats
will in tiie end come to his support, notwith
standing (he effectual quietus given to all such
pre'eissions by the able, manly and patriotic
speech of Cobb, of Georgia, on Friday. The
impudriice on the part of the men who ask
Democrats lo vote lor Fuller is surpassed only
by the silliness of one or two Democrats
who give ear to their propositions. Much as
the I emucracy are opposed lot lie Republicans
and their insane attempts to spring tierce sec
tional i.-sues upon the country, the gulf which
seperales Hit Democrats from ihedoik-lan'.eiU
Know- Nothing is wide, deep and impassable.
Above all, the Democracy must not be asked
to reward the treachery of Henry M. Fuller
with the Speakership ; be is not orlh quite
that price. If those, who call themselves
Southern Americans find themselves in a bad
scrape, ll,ey need not in their miseries call
upon Heicules to help them, but must get out
of it in thebs-.t woy Ihey can, Had they re
lied on the National Democratic party, Ihe
result in the House would be very different.
The Democrats most respectfully beg leave to
be escused from relieving tliem from the ruin
which has so properly overtaken iheti. They
offer no alliance with the Know Nothing of
any section, unless, purged of their heresies,
they place themselves on the platform of the
Democratic census, and come right into the
Democratic fold. These are Ihe terms no
fusion, no coalition with Know Nothings.

Ladies and gentlemen 1 one and all,
Old and young, great and small,
A moment give me your attention,
There ore some things I wish to mention;
Tis true I'm young and not well ted,
In many things where you stand first;
But e'11 a child, says things sometimes
When smoothly rolled out into Rhymes,
That makes old age pause and reflect,
A ad does them good to recollect.
Long words and dark unmeaning phrases,
That always have a dozen phases, .
( can't command but speak right on
In simple language, Mill I'm done.
Then list, I'll tell my speech in Rhyme,
And lei you lead it at any lime.
Time, Time, do you ever think of it,
L'j't made of lime, know il;
E.ich year that flits is on ocean wave,
Thai hulls you nearer the open grove;
The Century C lock strikes fifty six,
Its next may send yon o'er the Stvx j
Time writes the wrinkle on thine marble brow,
Time moves not but is always now,
Time hurl's the maidens, chance of marriage,
And time ears out the deacon's carriage;
Time comes and goes, yet still remains,
Giving joy and grief and better pains.
Yel, all these things before your eyes,
Ne'er tends to take you with surprise.
0 man. poor tenant of an hour,
Corrupt by wealth and fading power,
Slop one moment, tlopand think
Perhaps e'11 now your on the brink
Of thot vast gitlf that lies between
This life, ond Canaan's fields of green,
The slightest jostle, yea a breath,
May ope the yawning gales of denth.
But this part oS the play is dreary.
Perhaps, your patience I moy weary.
So let us quickly change the ground,
And all of us "go lobbing around."
The elections all are just gone by,
And left a pure and cloudless skv,
Save in our own pure happy Stale,
Where darkly frowns Ihe brow of fate ;
We still are follo'ving;tlie illusion
Of this infernal pesky "fution,"
Composed of nothing else but slavery,
To meet the ends or basest knovery,
For they who use "the infernal plan,"
To thus deceive their fellow mon,
Cure not if every Southern Slave
Was rotting in a felons grave,
All they desire is wealth and station,
And a name throughout this mighty notion.
Last fall, through clouds we run the race
Which proved lo be a wild goose Ciiasr.
The wa'.chword, idea, platform, all.
That ruled the political sea last fall,
Was Slavery ! Slavery ! Slavery I Slavery 1
Nothing else but borborous Slavery.
But heieauppose we make a pause,
Can this one idtt give us laws,
To govern our most glorious State,
Tuat lotterly has grown so gieat;
Is it the touchstone that hot or cold,
Tunis solid rocks to shining gold f
Perhaps it is a magio Wand,
That when extended o'er the land,
Produce such a change in nature,
That man gels up a renewed creature
Who needs no laws fot his control,
But the ina'.e promptings of the soul.
These bubbles soon will pass away,
And there will come another day,
When, if we do not misour gueis,
There'll scarcely be n blade of gross
Left slonding, for to pleod the cause,
Or tell that such a party was.
The Know Nothings loo hove hod their doy,-
And now "A'now Nothing" for lo soy,-
They did Know Kothivg, when the fusion,
Last fall with them formed a colluisir on,
Which lore the parly oil to flinders,
Leaving nothing but a pile of cinders,
Sam now has neither Guard nor Setut,
To keep the vile intruders out,
Or whisper with Ihe darkened lamp,
There iii "Traiton all around Hit camp."
Bul S.-m was ciuclly betrayed,
By fusionisls in ambush laid;
His splendid schemes was burst in twain,
And he himself at last was slain,
And now lies buried on the plain,
From whence he ne'er will rise again.
But now a word to my loco friends,
'Tis said we ere the odds end ends
Of every thing that is unlucky.
From distont Mnint to olJ Kentucky;
Thai we cheat and lie to gel position,
And are always in a store of transition.
Progressing ever, and never still,
Possessing withal an iron will.
To these things, I make no reply.
Yoe know it's all as black a lolsthoojl
As e'er was penned by mortal bond.
To curse the safeguards of t,js land.
Though beaten and down trodden, nere,
Rise up, show not a s'.ngle fear.

O'er mountain, valley, land and sea,

This side the crystal galea of Heaven.
The Russian war is going on,
Perhaps it never will be done,
For Ihey who rule ne'er count the cost
Of the priceless lives that there are lost.
Soy you, what causes all this fighting
Bout which so many men are writing!
'Tis Ambition, the foulest whelp of sin,
That e'er the human heart let in.

And sit and listen to the Ocean roar,
Where pearly gem lie deep and drrkling,
And golden sands are brightly sparkling.

Than live ten thousand, thousand years.

But there oie other (linn's in town,
(Which sometimes get some of us down.)
We are loo fast, too tharp andri'iy,
And drink a greutleal loo much whiskey.
And when that cant be gotten handy.
We take a little tnort of brandy;
And once when both of these did fail,
I sow some boys get tight on Ale.
These things we do without once thinking,
That they will lead us on to drinking.
But boys, stop! you ore going l hell,
(That is rough, but the truth I'll tell,)
Fiery seas and boiling lakes,
Huge dark fiends, and hissing snakes.
Mountains disgoiging floods of fire.
And other sreuery much more dire,
Airayed as if in sheer derision

Stop; drink no more, the Wine '-ups wave,
It is an Aof.nt for the ciuve.

There is no reduction in the prices,
Of Corn and Oats and Flour and Meat ,
And other delicacies sweet.
I'he Farmers now make oil the cosh,
And will, until there comes a crash,
And then ol thai important crisis,
Well get our food at living prices.
Our merchants still are making sales.
By wholesale or in single bales,
Supplying each and every call,
And being affable to all.
We've lots of weddings, all Jhe lime,
And some of which we put in Rhyme,
With our Maslucn, that's always ready,
And grinds il out straight, fair ond stesdy,

Something somewhere is out of joint,
Why so divide up our society ?
Wilh lines and names of such variety.
There's Shanghai, Bamtam, ond Cochinchint,
(Names imported from Scuth Carolina,)
To designate the several classes,
And make liardfeelings in the masses.
The Shanghai's and the liltle Bantem's,
Of late have gone down ten per centum,
While the rest are so inucli'below- par,
We can't tell what their values are,
These numes we think will soon wear out,
For such things always change obout,
Then hue worth will find lis level,
And starched pretensions go lo the bugs.
And now one word for the "Coronet Baud,"
The sweeiesl players in the land,
They are always ready and in tune.
In March or April, May or June,
And if their services you require,
Just write lo B. F. Larsh, Esquire,
Who is the acting Secretory,
And does all mailers epistolary.

'Bout which I surely ought to sing.

In every nook about the town.

What will you do when you cloU?
You'll die ! the tale's all told.
Then all the wealth bon your s'.olioni,
Will go to feed some p jot relation.

Not even leaving e greasy fpot.
Then go right onl, and get a wife.
And begin again your useless life.
Do something to increrse Ihe Nation,
And meet the women's approbation.
And last not leabt, iny dear sweet girU,
For you I have retained the pearls,
Of this my Vat'igoied song,
Which now is growing rather long.
You are Vue apples of pure gold,
Set in silver's richest fold,
Spiling eyes end blushing beauty,
(Huigh-a I'll Iry to Jo my duty.)
That send a pure ond polished dart.
Through every true and feeling heart.
Goon and joy shall light your way.
In oil you do and oil you say,
And when your cup of life is even,
You shall sweetly rest in heaven.
Now frienus, my little song is ended,
By you I ask to be befriended;
I'm poor you know I'm nothing shorter,
So please give me a dimf. or quarter,
And take my song and read it through,
Perhaps il may be something new,
If not, I think it is expedient.
For me te say,
Y"Ur most obedient,

Since Ihe above call was issued, new contin
gencies have been developed, partly in regard
to the attendance of rpeakers selected, and
partly in consideration cf Hit distracting influ

as well as a desire from some quarters lo ob

with other reasons not necessary lo enumerate,
havn seemed lo render it advisable that the
meeting lake plnre according lo the original in

it Mantis adjourned. The call for the 7lh of
January is therefore revoked.
The annual address is lo be delivered by
