FAEBELL'S ARABIAN LUTIMnTT TRIUMPHANT OVER DISEASE This truly great medicine still goes on, conquer ing disease, aud snatching many a poor powerless victim from the grave. By lis powerfully stimula ting, penetrating and anodyne qualities, it restores the use of limbs which haye been palsied for years; and by its singular power of reproducing the syno vial fluid or Joint water, it cures a't diseases of the joints with surprising rapidity. For rheumatism and affections of the sp'ne and spleen, it haB proved Itself a specific; and for affections rf the lungs, liver and kidneys, it is a most valuable and power ful auxiliary; also, for all diseases of the glands, scrofula, goitre or swelled neck, etc. And indeed for almost any disease where an external applica tion Is required, this medicine stands unparalleled. Sprains, bruises, cramps, wounds, chilblains, burns, etc., are speedily cured by it. WASHINGTON. The President's Message. Washington, Oct. 16. Fellow citizens of the Senate and house of representa tives: The adjournment ot the last congress without making any appropriations ior the support of the army for the present fiscal year has rendered necessary a suspension of payments to officers and men of the sums due them for services rendered alter the 30th day of June last. The army exists by virtue of statutes which prescribes its numbers, regulates its organization and employment, and which fax the pay of its officers and men, and declare their right to receive the same at stated periods. The statutes, however, do not authorize the payment of the troops in the absence of specific appropriations. Therefore the constitution has wisely provided that no money shall be drawn from the treasury in excess of appropriation made by law. and it has also been deolared by statue that no department of the govern ment shall expend, In any fiscal year, any sum in excess oi appropriations made by congress for that fiscal year. We have, therefore, an army in service authorized by law and entitled to be paid, but no funds available tor that purpose. It may also be said, as an additional incentive to prompt action by congress, that since the commencement of the fiscal year the aruij, though without pay, has been constantly and actively employed in arduous and dangerous service, in the performance of which both omcers ana men have dis charged their duty with fidelity and courage and without complaint. These circumstances, io my judgeuieut, constitute ua extraordinary occasion, re From the Hoc.

Under authority by my prede cessor to represent the United States upon that occasion, and the present congress having been, at the earnest desire of the Swedish government, posponed to 1878, this commission was renewed by an appropriation of eight thousand dollars made in the Sundry civil service act of 1875, to meet the expenses of the om mission. I recommend the re-appropria tion, for this same purpose the former appropriation having been covered into the treasury and being no longer available for that purpose, without further action by I congress, i be subject is brought to your attention at this lime iu view of tbe cir cumstances winch render U highly de sirable that the commissioner should proceed to the discharge of bis im portaut duties immediately, as the gen eral acts of congress, providiog for detailed reports of the different deoartments of government require their submission at the beginning of this regular annual ses sion. 1 defer until that time any further reference to subjects of public interest (Signed) R.

The evening papers point out that both the opposition aod gov crnment are disappointed, the former having hoped to return 400 deputies, while the latter reckoned on gaining 100 seats.

It is certain that a still greater reduction cm be made without impairing the eificiency of the administration. To have an honest administratiou, it should be frugal.
