JOHN O. HALL raoFRIKTOa. J. r. moose, ruoLieiirn. jhUHoIJAl, DEC, 13i7i, li!(3(3. 77 l' resident's Jtiessafre. We this wees give the remainder of thin tuoat important documeut. What, ever cite may be said of 1 'resident John son, his greatest monies must admit thtit he always locks up Lis assertions with i-ouud constitutional arguments. The present Message is one of the tut Me state papers that has been tii, wsiuce the days of Buchanan's U(.ni'i)ittraliou. Mr. Jolmsou reiterates hi i'oitncr declarations as regards the reoonetruction question, in a clear and forcible manner. He appeals to the good reuse of Cougress in a candid and statesmanlike wanner- Let everyone lead it. M. The New York Xent truthfully and forsibly observes that "it is time that come more efficient agency than lucre argument and expostulation should bo used to enforce tho will of the ma jority. The President has defined his position now what will he do to main tain it?" With a clear majority of about eight hundred thousand votes in fi.vcr ot the Union policy of the Prcsi. tler.t it is high time that something he tioec to vitalize that policy. The law. leM cubel now domineering over the people, abusing the President and tbrea tening our fiuancial and political des, truction, must be throttled and burled lrora tbe high places they have usurped. The lawless threats and efforts now ma king in the II u nip Congress must be stopped , and, as tbe Radical insist that the times ate still warlike and revolution ary, let them be dealt with in that spirit. In martial law tbe Commander.in-chief the President, je usurpers! has a panacea for all the ills of disunion. Has be the net va to use it, it need be ? We will see- The UcrW ears : ' The heart sick-O'j- at the recital of what was Baid aud done by .he Representatives of the peo. pit tvithi'i forty-eight hours after they had Hbsembled at the National Capital. There was a time when respect was paid to tbe President of the United fc tutes by virtue of office, no matter how unpopular ho might be ; but that day is parsed To'day he seems to be the most popular man who can sny the hardest iliiugs of the Executive." All of w hich goes to prove that " graud moral ideas " have not elevated the etaudard of political excellence. A most atrocious robbery occurred at Hai'tline, Union County, Illinois, last week. The isolated residence of an old man was entered by two robust villains, and not only robbed of S3,000 or 84,000 but the old man, and a woman confined to her bed by sickness, and a relative of the family were tied hand and foot, aud then, as with the hope of wiping out every trace of their guilt, tho fiends set lire to tho bulding- One of tbe parties released herself aud saved tbe others. Two huspcotcd men have been arrested ou the charge of the robbery. The Evausvillc (Ind.) Journal chronicles tho death of Mr. David Aik en, at the age of eighty years, who walked from New Orleans on a race with the first steamboat tbat ever came up the river to his place, in Warrick Coun ty, beating the boat two days. The Columbus (Ohio) Stateman pays tbat oue II. M. Taylor, hailing from Vermout, lately sold to some citizens of Alton, Franklin County, what purport, ed to be spleudid black Spanish bucks. Tbe first rain that came, however, wash ed off their hue, aud they proved to bo ordinary white "scruts." A case of prolonged lethargy has oeeured near Yvelot, iu France. A young man aged twenty has now beeu sleeping for about three weeks. Gruel uud a small quantity ot wiuo are passed dowu his throat every day. His respi ratiou aud pulse are regular, lie is said to have luiu in a similar state for a fort night, three years ago. A letter from Newbury, Vt ,on the Connecticut, dated December 5, says Moobhillock Mountain in covered with a glittering white mantle of snow a tbous. and feet below its summit. At Cedar Falls, Iowa, last Monday i young man named MeLain stole two hundred dollars, mi when detected, ut his throat with a penknife. He nr:i likely to survive at last accouut. The Dotroit Advetiter says thut " ijulte a large portion of the lady 'ton' of that city niake their own boots." It ij&hiou, not economy. Tbe Rgdicals Bay tbe South can't t-Mi into the Union, but that is Radical wit- ! r-iVi Ikmocrat. UIiLiIHJlL.1 ..! iwjm""mi SHEHMANS MISSION. Preparation to Receive Gen. Sherman in 7lexicot ICtc. Correspondence N. Y, HeiaM. Vera Cuuz, Nov. 23. Twenty. four liouih at Vera Cruz have solved all doubts as to the reception Lieutenant- Gcueral Sherman, Minister Campbell and their suite, will meet with in this city. They will bo welcomed with open arms. Yesterday I happened to meet the French Consul, M. Courthial. He was courteous and even communicative, He informed me that the French au thorities would with pleasure place an escort at tbe disposal of General Sher man, to conduct him to the city of Mexico, where he would be compelled to go, for tbe purpose of seeing Marshal Bazaiue and General Castlenau, who were the only persous that he could con sult. This is not all that might be said of the disposition of the French authori. tics. On learning from the newspapers that an expedition to Mexico hnd been fitted out iu1 the United States and was expected to arrive at Vera Cruz, Admi ral Clouc, commanding the French flett here, telegraphed to Marshal liazaioo to know what ho was to do. Tbe reply was that the Susquehanna was to bo received with all the honors usually ac corded to the ships.of.war of a friendly power. The French, indeed, are heart ily tired of their bclcblanc their white elephant and not an ofliccr I have spoken to but exults in the rpospect of soon transferring the Mexicans to other guardianship. One of them eveu ex pressed a hope tbat Shcrruau would shoot eveiy rascal in Mexiso. The Susquehanna was to have sailed from Havana on Saturday last for Tam pico. which port she will probably reach to.morrow. It is possible that envoys from President Juarez may be in wait, ing for them there. Up to Friday last it would seem no definite information of the friendly disposition of the French authorities at Vera Cruz had reached General Sherman or Minister Campbell, aud it was therefore, deemed prudent to try Tampico first ; that port, though on ly seven or eight hours' sail from Vera Cruz, being in tho hands of the Liber, als. Mr. Saulnier, who, in the absence of Mr. Laue, the excellent United Sta tes Consul here (now back at his post;, has looked after Ame.riean interest in this port, started yesterday for Tampico in the British mail steamer Elder to await the arrival of the Susquehanna, and it is presumed to communicate to the Mexican mission that a favorable reception awaits them in Vera Cruz. For a nation so inert and apathetic in all that regards their iutcrests as tbe Mexicans notoriously arc, quite a re spectable amount of enthusiasm seems to have been aroused by this interposi. tion of the United States ou their be half. Nor docs tho presence of the French troops here entirely restrain the outward tuanifestions of their feelings. Sherman's name is mixed up with the harmless little decoctions they imbibe at the street corners. They get off quaint little jokes about the brave man who was going to stand by his guns, never so long, but who has run away at the first shake of Sherman's sword. Diplomacy, however, will have more to do with the settlement of this ques tion than the sword. Tbe brunt of the business will probably have to be born by Minister Campbell aud his cxperi enced Secretary of Legation, Mr. Plumb. Liberal emissaries abound even in V$ra Cruz, aud any one whose dress or appearance savors of tbe American is sure to encounter them. Truth to say they are a hard. looking crowd, and any one who would entrust himself auioug them with more than twenty reals in his possession aud without a pistol would carry valor to tbe vergo ot rashness. Outside the city walls, lying in the glar. ing suu, his head bound round and sev eral putrescent sores exposed obtrusively to view, I saw yesterday a most misera. ble looking object. Instead of the ex pected " For the love of God, a peso. Siguor," he drew from under bis gabcr dino two dirty photographs one was certainly Maximilian : the other was possibly Juarez. Rapidly shuffling them so as to briug Juarez uppermost he grinned and thrust them back again without a word. A regiment of Turcos qassed dircctlyalterwards at the double, quick. Perspiratiou streamed down their sooty countenances and each had a bundle slung ou bis bayonet. Appar ently they wero about to re.embark for Algeria. A troop of Mexicau city A rabs followed them at a safe dictauce booting and pointing at them. Thus are the mighty fallen. Maximilian remains at Orizaba, but the information comes from the Aus trian ooojoUie, that a largo tbip la been engaged for the conveyance of bin effects Irom Very Cruz back to Mirnmar. Certainly judging from tho number of cumbroui packages one sees on the wharves hero addressed " A. S. M. Maximiliano I., Itnpcratorc, Messico," a very large vessel will bo required fur the purpose. For some timo past a letter has been lying at the Post Office here, directed " General W. T. Sherman, till called for Post Office, Very Cruz." Ou its first reception it must have caused the postal authorities a little perturbation. How ever they courageously advertised it with the other letters lor strangers not called for, aud the Yankee sailors in port seem to make a point of coming daily to look nt the notice, and to expectorate a semi ciielo of notes of admiral ion round the board containing i. Sher man's calling for it is not so improbable now as it seemed a week ago. PnoaiiEss of " Voodooism." A Memphis paper states that last week in the practice of " Voodooism" " five ne groes " in the garb which Father Abam is supposed to have worn before his fall, " (lashed across South street into an op. en Culd, yelling and shoutiug like mad men, to tho terror of the women and the amusement of the men." 'This " Voo dooism," is a disgustingspecies of native African paganism with ceremonies and rites as varied and lothsome as those of the witches in Macbeth The Rev. C. K. Marshall reports the negroes in Mississippi as fast relapsing into paganism, and the Galveston Bul letin mentions instances of frecdmen practicing, in many portions of Txas, sorcery, witchcraft and the most absurd religious mummeries. " Medicine men" in that State have taken place of negro physicians in the confidence of negro patients, and ' rely upon the curative powers of chicken feathers, old bones, snake skins, &c. At a recent meeting of the Methodist coderence for Texas, the bishop stated that- in traveling lately through Howard county, in that State, he fouud a relig ious organization among the negroes, calling themselves " The -4ngel Ban J," a very paganist consert. Married by Mistake. Tho De. troit I'liian of Thursday says : " Last evcuing Edward Thayer and Miss Hel en F. Jelliman, attended by Mr. Aus tin Humphrey and Annie K- Crause, went to St- Paul's Church, tho former to get married, and the latter to net as groomsman and bridesmaid. They all stood up before the altar, and the offici ating clergyman, the Rev. Mr. Dunn, supposing that both couples were to 'bo married, requested the gentlemen to join hands with their respective ladies which wus done, and in a very a short space of time tho four wero made two. Tbe sit. uation being fully realized by the latter couple, they concluded to ucccpt what they could not very well help, and all adjourned to their boarding bnuse quite well pleased with the result ol the preach er s mistake.
