THE PRESIDENT'S IIESSAGE.
Unless there should occur some unusu
and unnecessary delay in the organization
of 'Congress, the President's message will be
issued during the - coming week. We shall
issue it from the office of Tar, Posy as soon
as possible after its reception. Country ed
itors can have their editions worked and
forwarded by express or railroad, by send
ins-dis their orders. Price one dollar per

HI t 464$11iki CONGRESS AND THE
At the time of--the last meeting of Coll-
gresp,_iOyas confidently predicted, that
fore-tii6 doie' of the pieaent - fear,`the finam
t cip.l4l4ctitxquAttial condition of Use country
'would/lie lie - Prachd. on 'a permanent basii3.
The sweePinggevulsion 0f1857, which para
lyzed "the industry and enterprise of the
country, nowappeari; to have been too deep
inits effects to be thus suddenly recovered
, . .
from. The country is still suffering most
.sensibly,frompineffects of that revulsion.
It is true that confidence in the pecuniary
institutions of the country has been in a
gresg,tmeasure restored, but their actual con
dition is now probably much the same that
.bas,4ert for years past, and . there, is no
telling at what moment another crises may
be his:Right about by causes similar to those
whidh produced the last. At the time of the
mists of 185* there were few who appreciated
the full,extent of the evil and the predic
tions of a speedy return to prosperity, have
beendiatippohated. The laple of two years
has not greatly improved the business con
dition of the country, and the industrial
intefeita'are still sensibly affected.- 'lmpor-
tation has recovered from the shock, and
has been painfully brisk during the current
year, bttt manufactures continue to languish.
In order to keep their establishments in
thoton. - ilriantifacturcrs were compelled; to
make many sacrifices, the effects of, which
are plainly risible on their bank b00k...
Congress is now about, to ,meet, and the
nafion i lotlks - t6 it among its first action to
provide, so far as lies in its power, a remedy
for the pre.sent condition. 'of affairs. The
prosperity the country 'demands a checi.
upon., importations, and some sort. of en
couragement to home manufacturers. Our
mines,. rilill,and factories do not occupy
the labor of as many hands as formerly, yet
constin4ption has not diminished, and the
extent of foreign importation exhausts the
resources of domestic enterprise and indus
try. The necessities of the'government for
purposes of revenue will affordto the prcs
ent-Congress an opportunity of doing an
effectual, per good to the country,
by. providing such a tariff, as will, in sang
degree, protect our home interests. The
country looksto Congress for early action
to provide such a tariff as, while it will fur
nisir,the sum which government, requires a
rev4ue, will also afford the fullest po:sible
prOction toAnierican industry. We hav,
thuldl - I, raw materials, locrd advantat,re.,
an( lvorking - forces to become a great roan
ufacturing nation. All we need is 'such a
o gt*tion of our, tariff and. banking lacy=
as prevent the waste of our financi, , l
merrns, -without Ivhich, the machinery of
pro' Action cannot be sujcessfully operated
notilthstanthng We possess abundance
of` labor and - materiaL The tariff guess-
tiort,is ono.::which involves the politiczd I
moral and material welfare of the country,
andis one which the people expect the
preont Congress to take action upon—wi,e
ly and speedily. • '

FUN AND 1110Ri" FUN-GRAND
(Fr , h,o. the Zatteptilh,
In almost every town and eity in this coup
try, there is a lodge of the Solis t.r
This mysterious order took ite rise in Nee:
Orleans sortie three or four years ago. There
Ere two accounts given et' its,' Orig,in. It is
said, by one account, to have originated '0 ith
the army of "\Vaiker, the Filliliuster," at the
time that worthy was preparing to take Cub a .
Another account says it originatild during the
ravages of the' yellow fever, and v,•as intended
to divert the minds of the frightened peopl'
as well as to supply a fund for charitablepur
posessuch as burying the homeless dead, &c..
However it may have originated, it is not:
the order that outsiders take it to be ; as we
shall presently shOw.
Ono-of the brethren, who has been turned
oat of -the important and secret office, the ini
tiate of which are " G. R. J. A.," has taken
offence at the order,' and communicated to us
the whole • pro ceedings—pass-Words, grips,

the candidate or candidates presents himself' or
themselves-in an outer room, where he meets
a committee of officers of the lodge who cons:
to him out of the 'lodge-room, with drawn
swords in their handli, with is kind of three.
barred 'sheet-iron hats on, which hide their
faces ; these officers put test. questions to
candidate; and any - candidate who hesitates or
falters, is allowed to depart in - peace; those
who remain pay live dollars each, and the coin
mitte returns to the - lodge-room to report On
the cases, and have them balotted for.
The fund thus raised pays the rent of the
room, and the balance is enpended in charities
—there are no other dues, for reasons which
will appear hereafter.
After the candidates are balloted for and
elected, the Grand Conductor goes out to the
ante-room and escorts the candidates to the
inside entrance door, where. he rounds on the
door with the hilt of his sword three times—
the inside sentinel raises a little , slide in the
door—peeps out; and the chief officer from the
inside asks in a loud voice: •
"What is the cause of the hub-hub'." The
sentinel answers: "Strangers coining into
camp!" To which the chief replies: -Let
'cm rip." .
Here the door is unbarred with a great
clanking of chains and bolts, and the candidates
. 'What . a sight breaks upon their vision! The
room fa'nearl3,- dark, as it is only lighted by a
lamp, of alcohol which site, upon a coffin in the
- the rooM,and throws its blue, flicker-'
ing light around upon the cc one. And sa'h a
scene! The members, dressed as our eitiaens
have seen them upon:the street, are ranged
around the, room thus : one lies upon hi; tee k
like a corpse:and another kneels down Upon his
knee beside him in the attitude of a mourner.
All is still Le a tomb around Lim room, except
in the centre, where. the coffin lies upon the
bier and the pale lamp dickers upon the scene
Beside that coffin, which is covered with a 1
pall or black cloth, marches and rid man who
carries a musket and bayonet upon his
old. man whose- white locks of hair
hang in weird and tangled niteisses about his
neck—with his left hand he snatches untnean
higly at his hair, end then mutters to, himself
as he turns upon his heel With military precis- 1

bear arms, to swim, to march, as to the condi
tion of their health, their teeth,
to their moral - character-whether they have
been or are, intemperate—whether they have
overstepped the, bounds of chastity, and so MI.
In order to get this informotion one of the pre
viously initiated heads the line and stammers
out answers to the questions, gradually and
painfully making himself out a mighty bad fel
l Ow. The others, who are blinded-and cannot
see, of course hold thornselvcs in boner bound
to speak out the whole truth in such 3 solemn
place as they imagine this still to he—se they
cannot see how the scene has changed. At
each answer the G. C. says " let it be recorded,"
and the recorder ting e out in a low, hollow
tone, as he writes it down in a gre'at book :
"It has been so recorded ". (cure.—The re
cords in that hook must be intereitting 1]
During thee questions the candidates are
tried, to test their ability to swim. to sing, to
play the drum or iustrunients, an d it must be
amusing tone staid, sober citizens lying down
face foremost upon the floor, and "stikingout
as if miming for dear life front Florida of
Cuba; as well as going through other tests to
a similar ridiculous character. But then,
each man thinks, we suppose, that -he must do
its all good "Sons of Malta' have done before
him, and therefore lie goes the Whole figure.
After enough of the above questions are
asked and answered, the candi dates take another
solemn obligation having reference tothe con
quest of Cuba, which is administered to them
nitheir blind state, while each places his hand
upon a big book, which is always carried in
procession, .aiad. whi6ll contains nothing but
the pictures of two Jackasses one in tliepritne
of:life and the other in &rapid decline.
After tifia the candidates are told. that they
must retire for a moment and prepare to go
through a trying, nrileal, which will severely
test their nerve :t and manhood.
They retie,, ends.,:cone iPeond.
The candidate:; are now brought in 'ono at et

and they give hiia a shove down the ladder,
over the rollers. Without any sled. he rides
this way to the bottom of the ladder, where he
til;es snrinuing loard, just us it is jerked

he cninei down, hen raught upon the board in

By this time the candidate, blind as ho is,
begins to see through the matter, and gets
scared or riled.according to the state of his
feelings, but it is too late to stop.
After taking him round the room on the
hoard, the G. C. says, 'del the cavern bci open

at one end and hoisted at the other, and the
candidate slides down to the mouth of of hag.)

smoke,tack of a steamboat—rind as ho slides
down, a rough voice whi.Lpers in his ear "crawl

through the thing. While all hands are pound
ing on the outside of it with'•sticks—just as
comes out, he is taken again up the steep ladder
of rollers to the platform at the top. He is
now told to stand up straight, and divest him
self of all matter that will spoil by coming in
cord itt with water. While he is being thus
pr. laired 5r the water, tlm members have got
ready a large canvas sheet with rope all round
it; this is plaeed behind him, and held out
stretched by as many as can hold of the
ropes : as as all is redy, the Vandidate is
thrown from the plat f..rni back open this sheet,
and away he goes—up and drown—no sooner
down than op agam—like l-3ancho Pen Ztt tossed
in a blanket--until th e members get tired toss

an umbrella without any mvering is then
hoisted and given to him in bi< left hand,
while in his right hand is placed a cow bell—
he is told to hold uo the umbrella and ring the
hell, and thus he sails down over the rollers
into a tub, fun opt' wet. sponges, at the bottom.
Here the blinds are taken from his eyes and he
beholds himself surrounded by about fifty per

gets angry, and finally he loughs with the rest;

It is said Ly the friends of the late Mr.
Puinde ter, of I\.Titshvilie. that the statements
made as to the tiieti4 in the affair which led to
his death, have mu done full Justice to the de
ceased, and the public are requested to await
the result of the judicial investigation. It is a
sad reflection that urea in a civilized communi-
I ty should have se little regard fur the value of
human life as on the one hand to tithe it, and
on the other to ha constrained to ACt upon the
defensive, from apprehension of danger.—
Words in public journals are tittered in a par
liamentary sense, and should never be con
sidered cause for acts of aggression. Many cdi
itors in the West and South-West Ii ve lost
their lives through too harsh an exercise of
their expressions, and we regret that another
instance has been added to the catalogue. A
public writer should, never indulge in any
opinions concerning his fellowman which
ho would not utter to lam in private.—
The most powerful pen is that, the point
of which traces finely and delicately the
dangerous course of a political antagonist.—
Mere denunciation is ineffi.etive with the
public, though it limy excite fearful hostility
in the bosom of the person assailed.

to come to Peoria to work. It states that from 150 to 200
can find emplorment. As we deem each an advertise

ori,lted miners, we take this occasion to state, there is
now more coal-diggers here than can find employment,
an 3 warn all to stay away. Many that have been attract
ed here by such unwarrantable colts, are in a suffering
condition, after paying out their httle.all to get here.

TT is well known that first class Dentistry
has been beyond the reach of the mass of people
on account of its costliness, and the majority, rather
than take up with the inferior workmanship of "cheap
Dentists," have adopted the wiser. course and done
without any, for if a set of teeth be Imperfect in work
manship and inexact in tit, It is worse than useless. nd
dear at any price.
THE'COBALITE AND PORCELA Dr TEETH have in
angurated a new era in the science of denthUry—being
the very best Artificial Teeth now in use, they can be
afforded at prices that'place them within, the reach of
Being the drat to introduce these new styles of work
to this community,l accordingly died such prices ea I
deemed would remunerate the best artistic Sind me
chanical skill. Saco then, however,the unprecedented
favor with which the work has been received, has Com
pelled other Dentists to adopt it, some of whom wish to
retain the old gold plate prices, which I consider would
be exorbitank for, though the new styles are really
more valuable than the bos; gold work, they are made
of less expensive material. The increased amount of
work done also compensates for the redtiction in price
On the other hand, a few Dente/ Quacks of this city,
who possess neither mechanical skill or common hon
esty, advertise the work at prices slightly less than my
own, nohvithstanding they have neither the ability nor
the right (it being patented) to manufacture It The
object of this trickery is merely to obtainnn opportu
nity o disparage the Coralite and Porcelain and recom
mend some oftheir own worthless work.

to make known these facts.
