can be judged from the limited time

'Through the exertions of the various

authorited by the law of April 10th,

to cultivate the soil, to perform pro

The reporeof the Secretary of the In
terior, submitted with this, will give
you all the information collected and
prepardd for publication in regard to
the census taken during the year 1870,
the operations of the Bureau of Educa
tion for the year, the Patent Office, the
Pension Office, the land Office, and the
Indian Bureau:
The report of the Commissioner of
Agriculture gjves the operation of this
department for the year. As agricultnre
is the ground work of our prosperity, Me
much importance cannot be attached
to the labors of the department. It is
in the hands of an able. head with ahie
assistants, ati zealously devoted to in
troducing into the agricultural produc
tions of the nation all useful products
adapted to any of the various climates
and soils of our vast territory, and to
giving all useful information as to the
method of cultivating the plants, cer
-, ,
eals and other products adapted to par
ticular, localities. Quietly but surely
the Agricultural Bureau is working 'a
'great national good, and if liberally
supported the more widely its influenee
will be extended and the less depen
dent we shall be upon the products Of
foreign countries.
The subject of compensation to' tbe
heads of the bureau and the alleluia
holding positions of responsibilityi and
requiring ability and character tb fill
properly, is one to which your atten
tion is invited. But few of the officials
receive a compensation equal to the
respectable support of a family, while
their duties are such as to involve mil
lions of interest. In private life services
demand a compensation equal to the
services' rendered., A wise economy

I have not given the estimates for the
Support bf the government for the en
suing year, nor the - comparative state
ments between the expenditures for the
year just passed and the one just preced
ing, because all these figures are con
tained in'the accompanying reports, or
in those presented directly to Congress.
These estimates have my approval.
More than six years having elapsed
since the last hostile gun was fired be
tween the armies then arrayed against
each other—one for the perpetuation
the other for the destruction of the
Union2-Hit may well be considered
whether it is not now time that the dis
abilities proposed by the Fourteenth
Amendment should be removed. That
amendment does not exclude the ballot,
but only •imposes the disability to hold
office upon certain classes. When the
purity of the ballot is secure; niajoiltles
are sure to elect officers reflecting the
-views of the majority. Ido nqt see the
or propriety of excluding'
men'from . office merely because they
were before the rebellion of standing
and'eharacter sufficient-to be elected to
positions requiring them to take an oath
to support the constitution, and admit
ting to eligibility that, entertaining
precisely the' same views but of less
standing in their communities. It may
be's.ald that the former violated an oath,
while the latter did not. The latter
did not have it in their power to do so.
If they had taken this oath, it cannot
be doubted they would have broken it
as did the former class. If there are
any great oriminalsdietinguished above
all others for the part they took in op
position to thagovernment, they might
in the judgement of Congress be exclu
ded from such an amnesty. This sub
ject is submitted for your careful con
sideration. The condition of the
Southern States is, unhappily, not such
as all true patriotic citizens would like
to see. &dal ostracism for opinion's
sake, personal violence, or threats to
wards persona entertaining political
views opposed to those entertained by
the majority of the old citizens, pre
vents immigration and the flow of much
needed capital into the States. lately
in rebellion. It will be a happy con
dition of the country when the old cit
izens of these States shall take an in
terest in the Ohne affairs promulT
-gate ideas honestly entertained, vote
for_ men presenting their views, and
tolerate the same freedom of eripression
and ballot in those entertaining differ
ent political convictions.
Under the provisions of the act of
Congress approved February 21st, 1871,
a territorial government was organized
in the District of Columbia. Its results
have thus far realized the expectations
of its advocates. Under the direction
o f the territorial officers a system of
improvenints has been inaugurated,
by means of which Washington is rap

without a proper sense of the grave re

responsibility of doing so. ~Under the
authority of said act I converted aboard
of gentlemen, eminently qualified for
the work, to devise rules and regula

The labors are not yet complete, but it
is believes that they will succeed in
devising a plan which can be adopted,
to the great relief of the Executive, the

The South Feels Spiteful.
The spirit of hostility to the general
Government, in North and South Car-,
olina, is fearful. It is believed by ma
ny intelligent observers to be no better
than It was in 1861. Both of these States
belong to the same federal judicial cir
cuit. It seems
. that recently . a Man
charged with murder, (a Hukkux,) was
arrested in 'a county in North Carolina
which adjoins South Carolina, by the
U. S, Marshal, and carried to Colum—
bia, South Carolina: The Democrats
were greatly excited over this in the
Legislidure of North Carolina, and
much WAS said about a "despotic gov
ernment," about crossing State lines
and " arresting the free citizens •of
North Ca mi I na." yhR. ; Governor of the'
latter State, who is a loyal, man, was
called op by the Legislature for infor
mation on the subject.; He clearly ex
plained the facts in the case, as far as
they were in his posseision, and stated,
among Dolts things, that the man ar
rested was charged, i with others in dis
guise, with committing a murder in S.
Carolina. Mr. Robbins, a State Sena
tor, who is strongly suspected of being
an remfnent Member of the Invisible
Endplre, pours out his wrath on the
9overnmelit. Mr. Edwards, of the
same body, referred to the Governor of
the State as "an insolent fellow." He
said language was powerless to express
his " feelings of reproach" for this fel
low in the Executive office. And'all
this because the Governor would not
assail the Government for arresting this
jf these Democratic Senators, and
the - people they represent, had their
way with the Eioverhment, what would
they do with it? We ask, what is the
beat remedy for this spirit in the South?
We can see none but the stern, continu
ous •enforeement of (he lam. Very
much of this bad spirit is traced to the
Democrats of the Nc i rth. They are en
couraging these tur f
uient leaders now,
jut as they encouraged them during
the late war. Just so long as stealing,
plundering and bribery are carried on
by the Democratic leaders, just so long
will this revengeful spiiit manifest it
self south of the Potomac. To make a
- good, lav-abldlog citizen
tor, would be a harder tare
lug a hog to talk.
Mbutgoruery Blair, '

informed by the late„PresidentLipeoln

this would-be Sir Oracle, to the columns
of the Simdalviirerald of the 2411 ult.
,We extract the following':„
- "The Oracle says that President;-Grant is a

to fool Grant in 18p8, by promising, to make him

" ile admits that Presldeot Grant has a pow

" Twice have we felt like thinking Montgom
ery Blair publicly. The first occasion Was when
he left the Republican party, and now for this
candid confession of the •utter hopelesimils of
the Democratic party. • • •
" The Blair family are not happy unless they
are a part of the powers that be. Montgomery.

with General Fremont, in reply telt sharp retort
from Mrs: Jessie Benton Fremont, boasted that
their family made Presidents' Now this would.
he Warwick wishes to try his hand in 1872, , and
gives to the world his plan. For a whole year
this adroit Blair has been cogitating, scheming,
inventing some subtle strategy, by which the
star of the Blair family may again be in the as
ceadavt. He does not seem tq care for the Dem-.
*credo patty, or for Democratle principles, WI
he is anxious for the future of 'the family, whose
peculiar province it is to make Presidents, and
he teems to think that his yeir of labor bas,been
successful, sod be hastens to give to the world
his plan fur defeating Geberal Grant.
" In the first place the Deruocratio party malt
lie.low and 'keep dark. They mull act as if they
were defavet—politically dead ; bold no conven

published in the Anierietin .Tournal'of

which he advocates the internal

"Being impressed with the idea that
tbeireatment was - rational, (determin
ed to give it a trial the first opportuni
ty. On
,the 18th of December I was
called to visit a child near two years of
age, laboring under'small pox, the pos
tules being first Cheer* by her pa
rents on the lath, tWO-days previous to
na3 first visit. I first gave the child a
dose of calomel and ?rhubarb, sufficient
to operate moderately on her bowels •,
then, after obtaining the sanction of
her parents, I nut one quarter of a good
sized crust of vaccine virus into sixteen
teaspoonfuli of water, ,and directed one
teaspoonful to be given every three
hntira *o- out- As"—
commencing the remedy, the postules
had a shrivelled appearance, and on
the 24th, six days from my first visit,
the postuies were so completely abated
that I considered my patient out of
danger, and quit visiting. All the me
dicine this child took in addition to the
above, was some mild laxative every
second day, when necessary. From
the number of postules, not protected
by vaccination, I have no doubt she
would have been a serious, if not a fa
tal case.' I had an opportunity of ex
amining her, and
. coutd not find a pit
or mark on her person.
" Since the foregoing ease, similar
treatment, on threedifferent occasions,
;has been attended with like satisfactory
results. Ido not suppose injurious
effect would follow much larger doses,
and - by observing to e differencebetween
large and small d i ain the rapidity of
recovery, we • o soon determine the
quantity beat ad pted to ordinary casks.
I think the remedy.should be resorted
toJas.soon as possible in this disease.—
One person administering the vaccine
virus by my directions, assured me that
where the virus was given in the fever,
before the postulesappeared, they nev--

The only preeUution necessary in
