ident's Message is : 'rega.rded'as an Able
abate paper, moderate,. cautious, and thor
oughly conservative in tone, and the press
of 'both partiei cernineritlavombly 'upon
the sound doctrines it advances. The most
important feature of - the message is that
relating to the finances, and the recom
mendations of the Presrident on this ques
tion are thus . referred to by the Baltimore
. "In the very first paragraph of the Ines . -
sage, and with-military bluntness and di
cectuess of. purpose, be takes the bull of
"the financial question" boldly by the
horns. It is gratifying to find that upon
this nil important subject, . which is pre
eminently and above all others,-"the ues-
o e tour, taeresit ent a trumpet
gives no uncertain sound. Ire declares
in favor of resumption and of a return . to
decent money, not merely in the abstract
or in vague and general terms, but explic
itly and specifically, urging upon. Con
gress, 'at this session," the duty and ne
cessity of placing the currency of, the
country upon ti, basis common to and rec.
ognized by the Civilized world. 'ln this,
portion Of his :niessag,e4in Principle—we
do not speak of details—the President's
views are as eotiiid as a dollar—and a'gOld
dollar at that.: The pUtiliCcreditor to be
paid in .coitylaccording to the, bond when
thedebtivascontracted; gold or its equiv.'
alent," — a - e - obliwititin — ria — te — be evaded'
"without national disgrace;' the - repeal of
the legal-tender clause, to takovifect'
all contracts entered into after the dayfix
ed in the repealing act; a revenue suffi
ciently in excess of expenditure_ta
an accumniation.of .gold in the, treasury
to' sustain :resumption ; and lastly, a aye-
tem of free bankingns essential to give
proper elasticity to the curreacY, These
are the, salient recominendatlons ,urged by
the Presidentupon Congress at its' present
session as necessary to restorer/the-curren
cy to a normal and healthful - condition.''
The President reports our foreign af.
lairs as in good condition, with some ex
ceptions that May not or may, become se;
lions. Spain btu; not yet finally settled
the Virginias affair, The Cuban, revel t
continues, and raises the question of the
advisability of foreign intervention. The
MeXicans are,stili stealing Texan cattle
iagreat numbers, while the President can
only hope that the Mexieliu Goveroment
gill put a stop to the knav
ish business. - But 'Major' Makenzie, we
may stiggest, retina an effective, way of
dealing- ith the (motion without bother
ing. about the Mexican government. Per
haps•ths precedent may be worth follow
- Along wlth a great number of minor
recomincadations, the President devotes a
'considerable portion of his message to the
condition-of attsirs in the Southern States.
lie defines hiS position as to this question
' with great:frankness. In Louisiana, he
will do as he has done beretofoie, i. c., he
, will sustain the Kellogg Government, nn,
Mess otherwise directed by Congress.—
Touching Arkauses, he will do nothing,
though he lays before Congress a succinct
statement of. the tremendons muddle into,
which the politicians of that State have
managed to plunge its Government. The
President dmribes the. situation of the
South which Indy* him, just before the
election, lo order numerous prosecutions,
and to concentrate troops to support • the
officers of the law. He says plait ho un
derstands the Fifteenth Amendment and
the Luforcetuent law to guarantee the cit.
hens the right to vote, and to protect them
in its exorcise. He shall administer the
law in this sense while he remains Presi
dent. If ,Congress thinks that he has act
ed on mistaken information, perhaps it
will order an investigation. As for the
citizens of the south, the President dive
them some very plain advice in a spirit
of frankness and kiptiness. jfe deprecates
ihe obstinacy of parties in "dividing on_
the color line," nod ho gap that if the
Southern whittn will make up their minds'
to treat the oepo Yas a citizen and vo
ter as he is and 'must remain," there will
be no further occasion for trouble with
him. Ammeg, the ad ,a itag 's of such a
cousummation, oneyouid be specially a
greeable to the President., that would be
his release-from the necessity of interfer
in the affitirs of individual States. It is
pleasant to be able to believe that to some
considerable extent the whites of the South
have anticipated the excellent advice of
the President.
We Ltight in conclusion, to•remark that
the President announces his intention of
'abandoning the civil service reform unless
Congress distinctly supports it by legisla
tion. The condition will not be fulfilled,
and the reform will tfieibefora the 4th of
March. We are sorry for it. It was au
attempt that promised much, and might
have been made to yield a great deal.—
But if the President has not dune with it
whatftnight have done, be bus, a t least,
Wen ahead of Congress and et the
majority of the public, which bears with
.groat patience a civil service that, in tee
ny of its features, swindles, insults, and
degrades the,eountry.

The legislature fixed the salary of mem

itifirThe people of: Maine have been
exercised for the past two years over a
phase of the "female progress" question.
Gov.. Chamberlain, out of his , 'sympathy
for the friends of the muse, appointed
some ladies to:the office of Justice of the
Peace. Some illiberal men with narrow
er views . of the fitness of things opened
legal proceedings to prevent them from
entering upon the duties of their positions.
The case finally reached the Supreme
Court of the State, which has rendered a
decision adverse to the female aspirants.- 7
They are, 'however, riot entirely barred
from public life, aa the Court holds that
they may occupy any office created by
the Legislature, but not such as are es
