The President’s Message.
[Contivued from Third • ‘ emancipation and arming the blacks. These measures have been much discussed in for dgn countries, and, contemporary with such the tone of public sentiment there, is much improved. At home tbe same meas ures have been fully discussed, supported, criticised, and denounced; and tbe elections following arc higldy encouraging to those whose special duty it is to bcarthe country through this great trial Thus wc hare the reckoning. The crisis TThlch threatened to divide the friends of the Union is past Looking now to the present mid future, and with reference to a res amp-! tion of the national.authority within the States wherein that authority nna been bus pended, I have,thought lit to* issue a procla mation, a copy of which Is herewith trans mitted. On examination of this proclama tion, It will appear as is believed, amply jus tified by the Constitution. True, the form of an oath is given, but no man is - coerced to take it A man is only promised a pardon in case he ■voluntarily takes tbe oath, the Constitution authorizes the Executive to grant on such terms as arc fully established by judicial and other authority. It also provides, that if in many of the States named a real government shall be in the mode prescribed set up, such government shall be recognized and guaran teed by the United States, and that under it the State shall be protected against invasion and domestic violence. The constitutional obligation of the United States to guarantee to every State in tbe Union a Bcpublican form of Government, and to protect the State In the cases stated, is explicit and full; but why tender tbe benefits of thin provision only to a State government set up in this ■ particular way? This section of the Consti tution contemplates wherein the dement within.a State favorable to a Bcpublican government in the Union may be too feeble for an opposite and hostile dement in the exterior, and even within the State. Such are precisely the cases with which we arc now dealing. An attempt to guarantee and protect a re vised StctcGovcmment constructed In whole or a preponderating part from the very de ment against whose hostility and violence it Is to be protected, is simply absurd. There must bo a test by which to separate opposing dements so as to build only from the sound, and that test is a sulfldently lib eral one which accepts as sound whoever will make a sworn recantation oi Ms former un aonndness. But if it be proper to propose as a test of Admission to tiic political body, an oath of allegiance to the Constitution of the United States and the Union under it, why net also . to the laws and proclamation in regard to •lavexy ? These laws and prodamations were ■devised and put forth for the purpose of aiding the suppression of the rebellion and to give them their fullest effect there bad to be _ u pledge for their maintain once. 1a my * judgment they have ’aided, and will farther aid the cause for which they were enlisted. To give up this principle would be not only to relinquish a lever of power, but would also be a cruel and astonishing breach of faith. I may udd at this point that while I remain in my present position I shall not attempt to retractor modify the Emancipation Procla mation, nor *hall /return to *lat*Ty any person toko is free by the tennsofthe Proclamation, nor by any act of Congress. For these, and other reasons, it is thought best that the support of these provisions shall be included in the oath, and it is be lieved that tbe Executive may lawfully Hntm it in return for pardon and restoration of forfeited rights, which be has clear constitu tional power to withhold altogether, or grant upon the terms which be shall deem -wisest for the public interest It should be observed, also, that this part of the oath is subject to the. modifying and Abrogating power of legislation and-supreme judicial decision. The proposed acquiescence of the National Exceptive in any honorable temporary State arrangement for the freed people, is made with the view of possibly modifying the confusion and desolation which must at first attend all desses by a total- rev olution of labor throughout the whole States. It is hoped that the already deeply afflicted people in these States may be somewhat v more ready to give up the cause of their afflic * tion, and to tins extent this vital matter is left to themselves. While no power of the National Executive to prevent an abase is abridged by the proposition, the suggestion in the proclamation as to managing the political framework of the States, or what is called redbnstmction, te made in tbe hope that it may do good without the danger of harm, and will save labor and avoid great confusion. Botany proclamation upon this question is beset with the conflicting views that the step might be delayed too long, or taken too soon, some elements for resumption seem ready for action, but remain inactive appar ently, for want of a rallying point or a plan of action. TVlv shall 1 adopt the plan of A rather than of B; and if A and B should agree, how can they know that the general Cfovcnuncnt here will respect their plan? By the proclamation, plants presented which may be accepted by them as a ralh ing point, and which they are assured in advance will not be rejected here. This may bring them to act sooner than they otherwise would. The objection to a premature presentation of a plan by the national executive, consists in the danger of committal, or what conld be more safely left to further developments. Care has been taken to so shape the docu ment as to avoid embarrassment from this source. In saying that on certain terms certain classes will be pardoned, with their righta restored, it is not said other classes on other terms will ever be included. In saying a reconstruction ■will be accepted If presented in a specified tray, it is not said it 'will never be accepted in any other way. The movements in State action for emanci-’ mtion in ecrcral of the States not included in the Emancipation Proclamation, arc mat ters of profound gratification; and while I do not repeat in detail what X bare heretofore so earnestly urged on this subject, my gen eral views and feelings remain unchanged, and I trust that Congress will omit no lair opportunity of aiding these im portant etciie to the great consummation. In the midst of other cases, however im portant, we must not lose sight of the fact that the war power is stSU our tnaiu reliance. To that power alone can we look yet, for time to give confidence to the people in the contested regions that the insurgents power will not again over run them. Until that confidence shall be established, little can be done any where for what is called “Reconstruction.” ■ Hence, our eftitf care must still be directed to our army and navy, who have thus Ikr .borne themselves so nobly and wcU. And it may be esteemed fortunate that in giving the greatest effi ciency to their indispensable arms, we do also honorably encourage the gallant men, from commander to sentinel, who compose them, and to whom, more than all others, the world stands indebted for the homo of freedom dis enthralled, regenerated, enlarged and perpet uated. ' (Signed) Asuattam Lincoln. Washington, Dec. 8,16C3. THE CITY. Anotbeb Stuffed Watch Case. A greenhpm at the Galena Depot, yesterday, paid SSO for a worthless “stuffed watch,” not worth fifty cents.

While the big Copperhead print is explaining, will It also explain about that SIO,OOO, who got it, and why it was given back f United States Plantation Agent.—We have received numerous letters Inquiring the ad dress of Mr.'Uvermore, the U.

Metbopolitak Hall.—Quite a pleasing episode occurred last evening at the Opera House of Arlington & Donnlkcr. ‘ After the termination of the first part of the performance, Alderman Bblmp stepped on the 'stage, and In a few well timed remarks, presented, on behalf of several friends, a gold watch, valued at $l5O, to Wm. Ar lington, the “funny” man of the troupe. Mr. Ar lington replied in a modest little speech, thanking the Alderman and his friends for the valuable gin. . Soldiebs* Remittances.-—Several com plaints have recently been tnado that fands entrust ed by soldiers in the army to private parties for delivery to friends at home have failed to reach their intended destination. The surest mode of rcmlttcnce, the one always adopted by business men, la to remit by express where banking la cili ties do not exist. Soldiers should choose tho ex press, unless the honesty of-the messenger is well established, and the position in life such as to ob viate the temptation to steal. • A Double Buvglabt.—On Thursday night last the barber shop of a man named Pecklers, No: 11 West Randolph street, was burglariously enter ed, and a number of his razors, scissors, taken away. On Tuesday night last It was broken Into a second time, and the few remaining articles taken, including in all a watch, banjo, razors, scissors, boxes oT soap, bat* oQ, etc. In some way, known only to themselves, the detectives got on track of tho burglar, and arlcr dark last evening placed him in the lock-up.. Since his arrest, it has been ascertained that ho it was that entered the shop on both occasions. Frank Curran, clfae John the double-burglar, will be examined to-day. - Bailwat Collision.—A collision occurred last Monday night on the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago Railroad, between tho Cincinnati ex press train, which left the depot in this city on Monday night, and an Incoming freight train. Tbe collision occurred between Tolleston and Clark stations, about twenty-five miles from Chi cago, and resulted in the breaking of the leg of a brakesman on the Cincinnati tram, the smashing of two coaches, and a slight injury to engines Nos. 161 and ISO. The passenger train was running at a slow rate of speed—about five or six miles an hour—and hence theelight damage sustained. Lost His Cap.—Yesterday afternoon a country genius from the neighborhood of Elgin, came into the detective police station, and with tears in his eyes told a sad story about how he had been victimized.out of a “bran" new for cap, by one of the 44 wandering Arabs’’ of the metropolis. From his story, it appears thatho had been attend ing Coart, and believing in the honesty of every body, laid his cap down on the seat beside. While ettcntrvcly engaged in listening to the eloquence of the different lawyers, some ooy came in and picked up the countryman’s cap. and left bis own (a poorer one) in exchange. Tbe counterman's opinion of the honesty of the vonth of Chicago is considerably below par, and ho leaves lor Ms prai rie home a sadder if not a wiser man, Laboekt.—Hattie Childs, a well known “stool pigeon,” was brought before the Police Court yesterday afternoon charged with the lar ceny ofa gold watch and other jejvelry from Fred erick T. NoelL It was stated that the defendant had been living with tbe complainant as his wife for some time past, and on Tuesday, the Ist Inst., die made up her mind to terminate the Hason. To accomplish her purpose more effectually, she went to Joliet, at the sameltime splritingaway the complainant’s jewelry, which she had induced him to leave in her possession, stating that she was j;olng over on the West side for a day or two. In stead, however, of honoring the West division with her presence she went to Joliet, to sec her husband, a notorious thief who is incarcerated In the State penitentiary. She was committed for trial. In default of bail in S6OO. Fatad Accident. —Yesterday forenoon, ns the eastward boimd passenger tram on the Galena and Chicago Union Railroad crossed-a road near Genera, it ran over an unknown man who was ly ing on the track, cutting the body to pieces. The train was running on a down grade at the time, andthefirstthe engineer safer of the poor fellow was when his head, entirely severed from the body and cut open, tumbled from the trick. The brakes were instantly applied,' but not until the whole train had passed over conld it be stopped. The body was literally bashed by the wheels, and was unrecognized, either at the time or at the sub* sequent inquest held at Geneva, The jury acquit ted the engineer from all blame in the matter, as the evidence showed the deceased to have been lying in such a position that he conld not have been seen from the engine until too late. Alleged Fokgert.—A trial was convened on Tuesday last before Justice Moore, which is of rather greater magnitude tba« usually falls within the domain of action of a Justice of the Peace. The alleged frets are substantially these; Captain John A. Hynes received authority last year from Adjutant General Fuller to recruit a company of soldiers in or near Chicago. He was successful, bnt at a cost of $425, which money was not refunded him by the Government Be went down to theatmjvand ten months ago fcll in with two men, named W. U. and F. B. Mar shall, who after hearing his account of non-reim bnrsement, informed him that they were abont to proceed to Springfield, in this State, to collect a similar account, and would be happy to serve h>m, He consented and they departed on their mission, bnt were unsuccessful. A short time afterward Captain Hynes returned to Chicago and was paid by Captain Christopher. He has lately discovered that Messrs. Ransted and Marshall made another application to the Department at Springfield and were paid, signing the name of CaptainHynes to the receipt, and omitted to send h**n the money or apprise him of the fret of payment. They were arrested on a change of forgery. The examination will be resumed this morning. Belling a Guild. —A girl of not more than fourteen years of age was observed to be traveling 30 and fro in the streets of the West Division, on Tuesday last, apparently in a most perplexing state of uncertainty as to what she should do. She would pause in front of a house two or three times, looking wonderingly at the door as if trying to read on the plate the character of the people with in. She would then pass to another, and so thro' the same role, ad libitum. Being very respectably dressed, her behavior attracted much attention. She at last accosted a lady who was coming out at the door as the inquire, reached it, and after a great deal of drcnrnJoration, though without much apparent embarrassment. Inquired if she were willing to adopt a child. The questioned one re plied “No.” The damsel then betook herself to another locution, not far west of Halstead street or south of Randolph, where she effected the trans fer, riving about 5200 In monev and a quantity of clothing as a douceur to the individual who reliev ed her of her unwelcome charge. The child is a male of about four weeks old. The mother inti mated that she had been staying for some time at the Eagle hotel, and wonldnowrotnrn to her home in lowa, Coeoneb op Cook Countt—Republican Noukatiok.—A meeting of the Cook county Re publican Union Central Committee, was held yes terday, at the roomc of tbe Secretary—S. A. Irwin —at which the following preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopted: | A vacancy in the office of Coroner of said county has occurred by the resignation of Dr. Ernst Schmidt, and an election has been ordered by the Governor to be held on the 23d day of De cember next to fill such vacancy, and liTis/eo*, The trouble and expense of a conven tion to nominate a candidate to be supported at said election to fill said vacancy ought to be avoided if it can be d<pe consistently with the best interests of tbe party, and Whereat. Tbe Union members of tbo Board of- Supervisors, now in session, wIIL In the opinion of this committee, fairly express the wishes of the party; therefore That the Republican Union members of the Board of Supervisors be requested to meet at tbe Supervisors* room,' on tbo 10th day of De cember, A. D. 1868, utfonro’clock in the afternoon, for the purpose of nominating a candidate, to fill the vacancy in the office of Coroner, •ccagioned by tbe resignation of Dr. Ernst Schmidt, and all per sons desirous of being candidates of the Union party are requested to meet the Supervisors at that time and place. Junk Dealers in Trouble.—On Friday last, complaint was lodged at the Second Precinct Police Station, by the proprietor of a soda water manufactory on West Randolph street, that some £6O worth of faucets, &c., had been stolen from him. The theft was traced to three little boys, who, after some coaxing, confessed hating .taken the properly, and pointed ont three Jnnk stores at which it bad been sold, the large stun of abont $4 being realized by the transaction. The first of those visited owned to the fact of purchase at once, bat the other two—named Gamey and a«t»- fidd—persistently denied all knowledge of the transaction. They were summoned before Justice Brown, yesterday, and then consented to par the value of the goods aliedged to have been purchased by them. Of course the allegation of the boys docs not absolutely prove the Tact, and it remains an open question, although pointing strongly to willing concealment. Tfaepractico of dealing with these Juveniles, es pecially when the articles offered for sale are man* IfeeUr such as they could not have honestij owned, is very reprehensible and should at once be discon tinued. Greater temptations than usual now ex ist. and for the sake of gaining admission into one of the many places of amusement now in the city, there are plenty of ooys so oblivions to the laws of mevm and tnum as to be willing to take what ever comes in their way to gain the means of grat ifying their not azmatnraP cariosity. It is almost ottering a premium for theft, though the dealers may not, and doubtless do not, as a class wish to do so. Opposition to the Permanent Soldiers Hone.—Strange as it may seem, there are a few in the city, who are constant readers of the rebel organ, that are strongly opposed to the expendi ture of money for the purpose of providing a per manent home for wounded and disabled soldiers. They generally use the same arguments set forth in the Time*—that If the North would accede to reasonable propositions, the war might bo ended at once, Ac. Others argue, upon the same au thority, that “ there Is no certainty that the sol diers win receive one dune's worth of what is contributed to the Soldiers’ Dome or Sanitary Commission." Some of these individuals are frank enough to give their authority for thiabe tlef-or what they pretend to believe, as an excuse to cover up their selfish pennrionsness. Some of ffrpoo reports—made more by insinua tions l hmn by direct assertions—have been put in gradation by a fellow who failed to swindle some of the inmates of the Soldiers' Home. The per son who would go out of his way to circulate un founded stories, to contributions for toieral expense*/"wo SB are canvassing- the city tor this humane enter prise, wUlmaka a separate entry of peraons who refuse to give, on the ground of rumors from tuis or any other Individual, stating their authority for the reports. The managers would be glad to trace these reports to their source. BOARD OF SUPERVISORS. Second Day’s Proceedings, ISKOraCEMEST OF COMMITTEES—SE POBTS OF COtLVTT OFFICESS.

The War "Fund Committee reported through their Chairman, Ex-Supervisor H. Z. Culver that since the last meeting of the Board they had re ceived from tbe Paymaster of the United States Army. $6,326.28, making a total of $53,530.40 re ceived from allotments since March 4th, 1663. of which they have distributed $51,616.67, leav ing still in the hands of the Committtcs972.73 belonging to persons residing in tbe county who Lave not called for the same, and topere.ons resid ing outside of the county whose address the Com mittee has not been able to learn, 'hough all have been several times written to.

Supervisor Johnson, from the committee on poor houses and paupers, reported, recommendin'* that the salaries of the different officers remain the same as last year, being for county agent SI,OOO, warden S6OO, and SSOO for each of the physicking. Supervisor McGlashen contended that it was ne cessary to raise the salaries, in view of the in creased price of an the necessaries of life. They should be Increased twenty per cent Supervisor Gibbs opposed theidcaasawaste of money belonging to the county. Supervisor Taylor wanted the salaries to be in creased. Supervisor Strong thought that the county offi cers should have their share of the public burden aa well as their constituents. Supervisor Bolton thought that twenty per cent. Should be added ts the salary of each officer. He felt bound to state, that the committee had been divided on the subject. * On motion of Supervisor Campbell, the ayes and nays were celled on the question, each office being voted on separately. The following Is the result of the canvsss: County Agent, ayes 84, nays IS. Future salary, $1,200. On motion of Supervisor Do Wolf, the salary of the Warden wee fixed at SBOO by a vita voce vote.

THE CTTT CEMETERY—DISPUTED TITLE TO THE SHE—SUIT LX CHAJCERY COMMENCED BY THE CllY. Bally Record of Cases In the Law Courts, &c., dec. Recorder's Court.—Tho People of the State of Illinois vs. Josiah W. BisseU. This somewhat old, but, at the same time, somewhat famous crim inal action, which three years ago attracted a large share of public attention, but which has lately been in a state of suspended animation, gave signs of “ coming to,” in the Recorder’s Court yester day, under auspices which indicate that it will yet be a “very wide awake” criminal proceeding. It will be remembered that, in 1860, an Indictment was fonnd against Josiah W. BisseU and Walter F. Chadwick, by the Grand Jnry of Cook Connty, for conspiring to bnm the bridge over the Missis sippi river, at Rock Island. The proof failed to satisfy the jury that they were guilty, as charged in the indictment, and, in consequence, they were acquitted. Subsequently, in December, 1861, throe more In dictments were fonnd against BisseU. In one, he was, as before, indicted jointly with Chadwick, for conspiring with him to burn the bridge on the Joica tide. In tho two others be was indicted sep arately, for. endeavoring to incite (as charged In the one Indictment) the said Chadwick, and (os charged In the other) C. P. Bradley to burn the bridge on the Illinois side. After motions to quash, in all three of the indictments, had been ■ mode and overruled, tho defendant feU back upon the record of the previous trial, and pleaded autre felt acquit to each of the three indictments, as also the pica of not guilty. To the former plea, ‘‘The People” demurred generally, relying on the ground that the charge in the indictment on which Blescll had been acquitted was not identical with those set out in the indictments then pending. These demurrers were sustained by Judge Wilson, a decision to which defendant’s counsel excepted! without asking leave to plead over, and a biUof exceptions was drawn up and signed. In tho meantime the war. broke out, and Blase! was drawn with others into the vortex of military operations. It is now nearly threo years since he began to assist in the. trial of the case of the United States vs. Jefferson Davis ct ah, while tbe records of the cause in which ho was- personally interested, have been gathering dust among the criminal archives of tho county. Tbe bUi or ex ceptions was never forwarded to the Supreme Court. Blssel returned home a few days ago, hav- j Ing, we believe, resigned his position m the army, and his counsel, McAllister, filed a motion to the effect that he be permitted to withdraw his excep tions to tbe rnUng of tho Court on the demurer and file a new plea. Tbe argument on this motion, made yesterday before Judge Van Burcn, by McAllister, for tho defendant, and Judge Arrington for tho people, scemc-dto apply more particularly to the indict ment for conspiracy, which contained four counts. By the pleas on file, the plea of “autrefois acqnlt” was applied to three of these counts, tho Ist, 3d and 4tb, and the plea of “ not guilty ” to the second. Although tho record seemed to indicate that the plea of not guilty, entered by consent, had a general application to the whole indictment. Tbe propriety of granting the motion was orgned with much bigor and ability by tbe connsel on both sides. Tho decision of the Court will be given to-morrow. We believe It is the intention of the counsel for tho prosecution In this case to get rid, as Cost as they conveniently can, of all pro ceedings for delay, and'bring tho case to trial on the main issue as soon as possible. Siferiob Court.—Bill in Chancery in behalf of the City. A long bill in Chancery was filed yes terday in the Clerk's office of the Superior Court, the purpose of which was to help tbe city out of a legal hobble in which the neglect of those who have managed its affairs in times past seems to have involved it. The facts set forth in the bill show a disputed title to what is now a very valua ble piece of proparty including a considerable por tion of the ground now covered by the Chicago Cemetery, on the North Side, and arc substantially as follows: In 1848' Jacob MilUman purchased' of the Trus tees of the Illinois and Michigan Canal, out lota described as 45,40,45 and 4Q in the Canal Trustees’ Sub-division. Sec. S3. Township 40, N. of Ranee 14, £. of the Third principal Meridian, for seven hundred dollars. Tnepnrcbase was made on canal time,'viz: one-fourth down, and the remainder in one, two and three years, with sis per cent, inter est. MilUman received the usual certificate of purchase, and went into possession. The next year he died Intestate, leaving five minor chil dren, of whom three, Catherine, Caroline and David,survive. Cyrus Bentley was appointedad mlnlstratorof Miluman’s estate, ana in that ca pacity, in September, 1850, obtained permission of the Coart to sell a portion of this land to pay debts of the intestate with the proceeds. The pe tition was granted, and on the 2Tth day of Nov ember sold out lots 43 and 49 to tbe City of Chica go for the sum of twenty-flrd hundred dollars. At the time of this purchase there seems to have been one outstanding note due from the heirs of Mill!- man to the Trustees of the Illinois and Michigan Canal. MHUman’s heirs had as yet no deed and the city received none,bnt went into possession without talcing any measures to perfect the title. The heirs ofMlulman in the meantime remained In possession of lots 45 and 46, paid np tbe note that was outstanding at the time of the purchase* by tbe dty, and in May, 1663, obtained a deed of au the lots included in tbcfr father’s purchase, as wclTas those which had been sold to the dty, as those which had never passed out of their hands. The daughters are in the meantime married, one to Conrad Schell, and tbe other to Simon Nether field. Not long a*jo they made quit claim deeds of a part of the land in dispute fora nominal consid eration to a person by the name of Page, within a short time suits of ejectment have been brought against this dty to enforce this title. It is to enjoin these suits in ejectment and trans fer the cause to the chancery side of the Court for investigation that the suit in Chancery in ques tion is Instituted. A suit was commenced in the Circuit Court on Tuesday, by Miss Calista Mather, daughter of D. W. Mather, a well known commission merchant, against Dr. Aaron Pitney, an old resident of Chi cago, for breach of promise of marriage. In her declaration, she avers the fact of a mutual promise to marry, her continual willingness to adhere to that promise, and the defendant's marriage with another woman named Manraret Shields. She lays her damages at $25,000. The case presents no features of extraordinary interest thus far: we shall furnish as full reports of the trial as its im portance demands. tP’ Cxr * ct T r DisTnirr Courts—Dyors Hon.

The cases of drowning are tbe least susceptible of variation, yet in many of these it cannot be said whether they are suicidal act or ac cidental ; the verdict ot “ suicide” has been re turned only where it was really certain that the deceased bad taken bis own lira. So that nnder tho head of •* murder,” it is well known that with in the past twelve months several persons have died of injuries received at ihe hands of others. 'Many more deaths have, resulted from Intemper ance than hro credited to that agency. The death cited as due to poisoning is only that one case believed to have been accidental; of suicides, two pot an end to their existence by poisoning. Instances ol abortion have been but few, as report ed. In most of these 'cases the body has Seen fonnd wrapped np and conveyed to the water.
