' ' ,VS,: Immediately associated with tho flnnn rial subject just discussed is tho important question, what legislation is needed regarding the national currency! Tho aggregate (imount of bonds now on doposit in the treasury to support the natlonnl bank circulation Is about tBM.OOO.OOO. Nearly t00,000,000 , million of this amount of three per cjnt, which, as already stated, torOiPayttblo at tho pleasure of tho tl less than four years, unless, meantime, tin surplus revenues shall bo diminished. The prohnble elfectof such au oxtouslve retire nient of tho securities, which aro the bash of the ffatlonal bank circulation, would bt uch a guintraotfou of the volume of the curronoy as to produce grave com embarrassments. How cod Ihis danger bo obviated? Thf piost ell'ectual plan, and one wliost Adoption at the earlleit practicable opppr unity I shall heartily approve, has already booif indicated. If the revenues of iho noxt.four years shall bo kopt wltll tho oxpenses, the volume of. circulation-will not bo likely to gutter auy material disturbance. But if, ph tho other hand, theio shall bo great delay In inducing taxation, it will become necessary ditller J subatlttito some bthcr form fjgIucrenvyiinioploqef thd Jiationnl bank pnotes, or to malco important changes in me laws byi which thclr circulation i tlbw controlled. " In my judgment tho lultor coursois far prof era ble I commend to your attention tho very interesting and thoughtful Btfggestlojis upon this "subject, wh!eJnpf04Ulii tho ySeirotaiY's. rcort. Tho objections' which ho urges against the acceptance of any other securities than the obligations of tho Government Itself, ns n foundation for national bank circulation, seem to mo insurmountable For averting tho threatened contraction two course havo been suggested, eithor of which if probably feasible. One Is, the issuance o' now bonds having many yoars to VunS ivl'. bearimr a low rate ol 'Ihteresfyand oxcliungod upon spoclflod tri for those, ucrw, outstanding TluTdthcr"co"urbo, whlcli commends Itself U my own judgment as tho hotter, is the en actnieut of tho clause repealing tho tax oi circulation and ormitting tho banks In is sue notes for an amount equal to nlnetj per cent of the market value, instead, ni now, of tlio faeo value, of their deposited bonds. I agree with tbo Secretary in Uil belief that the adoption of this plan would afford tho necessary rolief. - " tfAtjrnn EMiaruTioN.

OT FOKESTS. 'MBlntny'laSt annual messngo I called at tention to tho necessity of protecting, by suitable legislation, tho forests situated uptfnthe public domain. 'In -many p'otrlons tof tho "West tho pursuit of general ngrjculture is only made practicable. "by" resort to irrigation, while successful irrigation would bo impossible without tho aid1 afforded byjvf6rostsiln contributing to tlfe 'regiHarity and' constancy of supply of water. During tho past year severe, suffering and great loss of property have been occasioned by pi of tiro liOvds, followed, i by- periods . Of iumually low great rivers Of tho country. , , . , These Irregularities were in great the -removal, from about tho 'sour'e'ea 6f tho streams In question of tho timber by which the Water supply had been nourished and protected. The preservation of. bueh ortIon. of tho forests on tho national domain as essentially contribute to tho equable flow of important water courses' is ht the ' highest , w Imliorfant tributaries of the Missouri tho Columbia and tho Saskatchewan riso in the mountains of Montana, near the northern boundary of tho United Htates, between tho Bluekfcotand Flapjcad Indian reservations. This region Is unsuitable for (.ettleinunt. but upon thu livers which How ffiom it, depend . tho future Agricultural development of a "vast" tract of country. Tho attention of Congress Is called to tho necessity of withdrawing from public t.alo this part of tho public domain, and establishing there a forest puscrvo. THIS TRJLDH DOLLAR. (pitf trade dollar was coined for tbo purpose of 'traillo in countries where silver passodtftt Its actual 'valtioy as ascertained by its weight uud fliieuesn. It never had a legal tender quality. Darge numbers of these coins, however, entered into tho volume of our currency. fc ljy common their circulation In domestic trade has now VuuiMjd, and they havo thus bccount a disturbing ' element. should not bo longer permitted to embaruss our system. I, therefore, that provision be mado for tbtlr reception by tho Treasury and tho mints, as bullion, at u sinall percuntugo above tho. current market price of bllver of like finances." ' At i OUlt UNPnOTEOTKD COARTrt. . The President calls the attention of Cout Cress to the presont condition of oiif extended sea coast, upon which are w many largo cities, whose wealth and, importance to thu country voiiid" in tlmo of war Invito attack from modern armored ships, against which our existing dofcnslvo works could glvo no adequate protection, and suggests that, If thoso works aro not put in un efllcient condition, we may easily bo subjected to humiliation by hostile ixiwers greatly inferior to ourselves. Suitnblo facilities for the manufacture of heavy ordnance adapted to modern warfare, and the perfection of our torpedo defenses re also lecommcnded. THE STATE MILITIA. The oncouragoment of Btnto militia organizations by tho National Government, the President believes would lie followed by very gratifying results, and would afford, in Budden emergencies, the aid of a largo "body of volunteers educated in tho of military duties. oun nnr.uxfATia navy. Tho Prcsldont endeavors to impress upon tho attontlon of Congress tho nocossity of continued progress in tho reconstruction of tho Navy. Tho condition of tho Treasury makes .tho present an auspicious tlmo for putting this branch of the service in a slaU of efficiency. Whllo it is no part of our policy to and maintain a Navy ablo to cope with thoso of the other great powers of tho world, and whllo we have no wish for foreign conquest, nnd tho peace which wo have long enjoyed is in no seeming danger of interruption, still our naval force should bo adequate for tho do- 'fence of our harbors, tho protection of our commercial interests, nnd the of our national honor. AT TO OOVEIINMENT TELEOnAIMI. On tho subject of Government telegraph, tho President says, that such reflection ns ho hns been ablo to givo to it, since his Inst annual message, has not led him to change the views thon expressed, in dissenting from the recommendation of tho then Postmaster General, that tho Government nssumo tho same control over the tele graph which it has alwuyu exercised over the mall. Admitting that the Government's authority In t'e pioralscs is as nmplo as has over been claimed, it would not, in his judgment, be a wise use of thut authoi Ity to purchaso or assume control of existing linos, or to construct others with a view of cntorlng into general competition with a private enterprise. He dismisses the subject by now ing tlio belief, however, that thu Goern ment should exorcise souio sort of sujiervls ion over telegraphic conimunl THE EDUCATION QUESTION Hcfcrringto the alarming state of illltor hey in certain portions of the country, the President suggests Federal nld to public primnry education wherever adequate has uot already been made. rOLYOAMV. Concerning tho extlrpatianof P'ilbiny, tho President is convinced that .he ell has become so strongly intrenched in Utah that it is profitless to attack it with any hut the stoutest weapons which constitutional Je'is lation can fashion. He therefore favors the repeal of the act upon which the exist tug Government depends, the ay the National legislature ot the en tin political control of tho Territory, nnd the establishment of a commission with such I towers mid duties as shnll bo delegated to it bjr law. s, 11AILIIOAD rniVILKOES. Tho President's conclusions on the subject of governmental interference, sujicrvlsion, of railroad commerce Is doses ibed as .follows: Tho right of these allwny corporations to u fair nnd return upon their Investments nnd to reasonable freedom in the regulations must bo rocoguUed, but it seems only just, that, ns far as its constitutional authority will ptruilt, Congress should at large in their traillo against ads of In jnstieo which" tho state governments are powerless to prevent. The effect of tho new system of civd scrvico tho President liclloves have thus far proved bentfloial. It'a practical methods -appear to bo adequato ior the ends proposed, and there hnsbcen no serious dilllculty in carrying them into effect. Un tho subject of Presidential succession nnd the propor interpretation of tho constitutional phrase "Inability to discharge tho powers and duties of said olllce," the President expresses tho hopo that these quostions will find speedy solution, lost an emergency arises when longer delay will bo impossible, and auy determination furnish cause for anxioty and ularin. THE CIVIL niailTS MATTER. Tho mossago closes with the following allusion and suggestion respecting the Mvit rights of the colored race: "Tho Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution coders the right of citizenship upon all persons .orn, or naturalized, in tho United States inil subject to tho jurisdiction thereof. It .vus tho special purpose of this amend- ne.nt to insuro tho colored race tho full their civil and political rights. 'ertniu statutory provisions, intended to ecure tho luforcoment of thoso rights, have een recently decided unconstitutional by ho Bupremo Court. Any legislation thereby Congress may lawfully supplement the guarantees which the Constitution affords for tho oquul enjoyment by all ho citizens of the United titates of every right, privilege, and immunity of will recolvo my unhesitating approval.

A negro lrian, Columbus Clark, has been arrested and is held nt Troy, Tenni charged with the kill ing of King and hls wtfo. ' It is rumored that tho hatchet used 'In breaking tho trunk has been identified by Dick Harrison, a butcher of Union City, as bis, and that this hatclut and some other butchers' tools wero missing nt the same time and about the time Clark left Harrtidit's' employ. Clark was tried nt Troy for the theft of theso tools, but the result of tho trial is in known here as yot. Few people here believe Clark guilty of this" crime, though he has served one term IntlieKeiltncky prison for cutting with intent to kill, Nows comes from Obion thut Clark is held at Troy in the Under strong guard, and fears are entertained there of a Kentucky mob's violence. Few, if any, nt Troy boliovo that Clark did the deed, and are afraid of Kentucky in letting their passions master their judgment. The outcome of the Clark arrest is awaited with feverish Impatience by the people here, and tho estate of King will offer a reward of f 1,(KX) for the apprehension and conviction of tho murderer. When the murderer Is found his rest will le near tho scene of tho diabolical crime, and will fill the community with, hoi ror us great as the offense itself. A HORRIBLE CONFESSION.
