Every moment of delay makes your cure more
hopeless, and much depends on the judicious
choice of a remedy. The amount of testimony in
tavor oi vt. schenck's Pulmonic Syrup, as a cure
for Consumption, far exceeds all that can be
brought to support the pretensions of any other
medicine. Sea Dr. Schenck's Almanac, containing
the certificates of many persons of the highest re
spectability, who have been restored to health, af
ter being pronounced incurable by physicians
of acknowledged ability. Schenck's Pulmonic
syrup alone has cured many, as these evidence
will show; but the cure is often promoted by the
employment of two other remedies which D--
Schenck provides for the purpose. These addi

Mandrake Pills. By the timely nse of tbee medi

does indeed work like a charm. Six years ago
mother hurt a fall which came very near r suiting
fatally. She recovered her iieallh in some degree
durim; the year following, but she sustained such
severe injuries, especially in her spine and left arm
nd shouldwr, that she was almost helpless. Ho
ping a change of climate might be beneficial, the
spring of the second year after her fall she went to
I tica.N. ., to visit some relatives. W hile there
she obtained and nsed some of your Magic Oil ; it
relieved her almost immediate!' , so much so tti t
she came home very much improved in health and
strength, and by the free nse of the Magic Oil she
is now enjoying better health than she has known
for ten years, and has recovered entirely from her
injuries. Mother has so much confidence in your
Magic Oil that she will not be without it.
Respectfully yours, Josera E. Dixson.

which marks the commencement of a new
term ot the presidential office.
Called to the duties of this treat trust I
proceed in compliance with usuaue to an
nounce sonio of the leadine Drincinles on
the subjects that now chiefly engage the
public attention, by which it is my duty to
be guided in the discharge ot those duties.
I shall not undertake to lay down irrevoca
ble pi inciples or measures of administra
tion but rather to speak of the motives
which should animate us and to suggest
certain important ends to be attained in ac
cordance with our institutions and essential
to the welfare of our country.
At the outset ot the discussions which
preceeded the recent presidential election
it seemed to me fitting that I should fully
make known my sentiments m regard to
several of the questions which
then appeared to demand the considera
tion of the country. Following the ex
ample and in part adopting the language
of one ot my predecessors, I wish now,
when every motive for misrepresentation
has passed away, to repeat what was said
before election, trusting that my coun ry
men will candidly weigh it and understand
that they will feel assured that the senti
ments declared in accepting the nomination
lor presidency will be the standard ot my
conduct in the path beiore me; charged a
1 now am with the grave and difficult task
of carrying them out in practical adminis
tration of government so far as depends
on constitution and laws in the chiet ex
ecutive of the nation the permanent
pacification of the country upon such
principles and by such measures as will
secure complete protection of all its citi
zens in the tree enjoyment of all their
constitutional rights is now the one subject
in our public affairs which all thoughtful
and patriotic citizens regard as of supreme
importance. Many of the calamitous
. fleets ot the tremendous revolution which
has passed over the southern states still
remain, the umecsurable benefits ot
which will surely follow sooner
or Liter the hearty and generous
acceptance of the legitimate results of that
revolution which have uot yet been real
ized. Difficult and embarrast-iug questious
niett us at the threshold of this subject.
The people of those states are still im
poverished and the inestimable blessing of
wise, honest and peacetul lucal scif-govern-tueut
is not fully enjoyed. Whatever dif"
fercuces of opinion may excite as to the
cause of this condition ot
is clear that in the progress of events the
time has come when such governments is
an imperative necessity, required by all
(he various interests, public and private,
ol thiise slates. But it must not be forgot-
lan that nnlv n bil fnvrnmnn tuKinVi I t S 1)110 ,
lccufcnizes and uiaintaius inviolate the
rights of all, is true self-goveanmenf.
With respo'jtjiothe two distinct racus whose
peculiar relation to eacii oincr nave
brought upou us the deplorable com plica-
ions and perplexities which exist in these
states, it must be a government which
guards the interests of both races carefully
aud equally; it must be a government
which submits loyally and heartily to the
constitution and laws-'the laws of the nation
and the laws of the stato themselves,
accepiing aud obeying faithfully the whole
constitutiviu as it is. Resting upon this
fure and substantial foundation, the super
structure of beneficient local governments

that belong to it or a return to barbarism.
Tis question in which every citizen of na
tiou is deeply interested and wkh respect
to which wc ought not to be in partisan
sense, either Republicans or Democrats,
but, tellow citizens aud lellow-men to whom
interests of common country and common
huciat'ity are dear the sweeping revolution
ot entire labor system of large portions of
our country and the advance of four mil
lions of people from a coudition of servi
tude to that of citizenship upon an equal
footing with their former masters, could
not occur without presenting problems of
graye scutioieut to be djalt with by eman
cipated races by their masters and by the
general government. The author of the
act ot emancipation thought thai it was a
wise, just aud providential act fraught
with good for all concerned, and it is now
generally cjnceded.throughout the country
that a moral obligation lests upon the na
tional government to employ its constitu
tional power and influence to establish the
rights of a people it has emancipated and
to protect them in the enjoyment ot those
rights when they are infringed or assailed.
t is also generally admitted that the evils
which afflict the southern states can only
be removed or remedied by the united and
harmonious efforts of both races, actuated
by motives of mutual sympathy and re-
ard, aud while in duty bound and fully
determined to protect the rights of all by
every constitutional means at the
disposal of my administration, 1 am
sincerely anxious to use every
legimato influence in favor ot honest and
efficient local government as tho true re
source of those states tor the promotion
of contentment and prosperity to their citi
zens. In the effort 1 shall mako to ac
compliah this purpose I ask the cordial
cooperation of all who cherish an interest
weltare 01 tne couuiry, trusting
tices of the founders of the government.
i'hey neither expected nor desired from
public officers any partisan service; they
meant that public officers should owe their
whole service to government and to the
people; they meant that the officer should
be secured in his tenure as long as his
personal character remained untarnished
and the performance of bis duties satis
factory; they held that appointments to
office were not to be made
uor expected merely as re
wards for partisan services,
that merely on the nomination of mem
bers of congress as being entitled in any
respect to tne control of such applicants.
The fact that both political parties of the
country iu declating their principles prior
to election gave prominent place to the!
subject of the reform of Our civil govern
ment, recognizing and strongly ureiog its
necessity iu terms almost identical in their
specilic import with those I have here em
ployed must be accepted as a conclusive
sruuieot iu behalf of these measures; it
must be regarded as the expression of tli
voice and will of tho whole couutry upon
this subject and both political parties aie
virtually pledged to give it their universal;
support.
The president of the United States ol
necessity owes hs election to office to the
suffrage and zealous labors of a political
party the members ot which cherish with
ardor ai d regard as of essential impor
tance the principles of their party organi
zation ; but he should strive to be always
mindful of the tact that he serves his par
ty btst who servos bis couutry best. In

here and everywhere, to unite
with me in an earnest effort to secure to
