    The President's Message.
We had, for a time, some hope of being able
to give this document entire, this week. No ad
vance copy, however, was forwarded to this city;
and not uuti/ the morning of our going to press,
did the Message arrive. We give our readers what
has been forwarded by telegraph. Next week we
shall send them the document, to read, and to pre
serve, It will be seen that the Message is firm
against any right in a State to secede ; and that it
assorts strongly the duty of the Executive to pre
serve the public property, and to enforce the
laws. The President inighi hnis spared himself
some of his sectional , reflections. But he is, upon
the whole, zonservative ; and for this he deserves
a nation's thanks.
Wssuixorox, Dec. 4.—The President com
mences by considering the unparalled prosperity
in all material interests, and asks why it is that.
(linen tent. now so extensively prevails, and the
Union, the source of all these blessings, is threat
ened with destruction. The long continued and
intemperate interference of the Northern people
with the
,question of slavery, ho says has at
length produced its natural effects. Different
sections are; now arrayed against each other, and
the time so much dreaded by Washington has
arrived, when hostile geographical parties have
beeroformed. The present danger has arisen, not
solely from the nullification of the Fugitive
Slave Law, nor from the claim on the part of
Congress or Torritorinl Legislatures to exclude
Slavery from the Territories, but from the fact
that the incessant and violent agitation of the
slavery question throughout the North for the
last quartet , of a century, has produced a malign
influence on the slaves, and inspires them with
vague notions of freedom ; hence a sense of se
curity no longer exists around the family altar.
The feeling of peace at home has given place to
fear of insurrection. Ho pursues this 'view fur
ther, and says that self-preservation is the first
law of nature, and that no political union, how
ever fraught with blessings and benefits, can long
continue if the consequence be to render the
homes and firesides of nearly half the parties to
the Union habitually and hopelessly insecure.
It is the President's conviction that the fatal
period for severing the Union has not yet arrived,
and his prayer is that the Constitution and Union
may be preserved throughout all generations, but
the causes of danger must be removed. For
twenty-five years the 'slavery agitation in the
North has been incessant. Pictorial hand-bills, I
incendiary documents, proceedings of State and
County Conventions, Abolition sermons and lec
tures have been multiplied of late to an incredt
ble extent. The time of Congress has been oc
cupied by violent speeches on slavery. Appeals'
in,pamphlets, &c., endorsed by distinguished names,
have been sent. forth from Washington, and spread
broadcast over the 'Union. How easy for the
American people to settle the slavery question
-forever, and restore pence and harmony to this
distracted country I The Northerners alone can
do it. All that is necessary, and all for which
the slave States have ever contended, is to be lel
alone, and be permitted to, manage their domestic
institution in their own way. As sovereign
States they, and they only, are responsible be
fore God and the world for • slavery .existing
among them. The North are not responsible for
slavery, and have no more right to interfere with
it than with a similar institution in Russia or
Brazil. He relies on the good:sense and patriot
ism of the South, and without its aid it is beyond
the power of any President to restore peace and
unity; limited and restricted as may be his
power, he can 'accomplish little for good or for
evil on such a momentous question ; and this
leads him to observe, that the election of a fel
low-citizen to' the office of President, does not
of itself afford just cause for dissolving the
Union. To justify a resort to revolutionary re
sistance, the Federal Government must, he says,
be guilty of, a deliberate, palpable`and dangerous
exercise of powers not, granted by the Constitu
tion. The late election was held in strict con
formity with its provisions. How then could the
result justify a revolution to destroy this very
Constitution? He recommends that we should
wait for some overt act on the part of the Presi
dent eleetbefore resorting to such
. a remedy. He
then refers to the fears abroad that the President
elect, *44 his" antecedents; will invade tile' con
stitutiontil' rights of the South; and' denies' that
such apprehensions are a sufficient .pretext to
justify the destrnetion of the noblest system of
government ever devised by mortals. Thervery
nature of: his office requires him't.O be Conserve-
The stern duty of administering the affairs
of the Government affords in itself a guarantee
that he will not attempt - violating a clear consti
tional right. • His provinoe is-not-to make, but
to exeMitelhe law, and it is's: remarkable fact,
that no single act has ever passed Congress, if we
except the Missouri Compromise, impairing in
the slightest degree the rights of the. South to
their property in slaves, and no probability ex
ists that such an act can be passed in the present
or next session.
Under,these circumstances, he thinks the pre
cept of Him who spake as man never speaketh,
sufficient unto the day be the evil thereof," should'
restrain' us, The allegation that the Southern
States are denied an equal right with the others
in the Territories, is referred to. •To which he
replies that Congress has never passed, and never
will pass, an act to exclude slavery from the Ter
ritories, and that the Supreme Court has decided
that slaves are property, and ipay be taken info
into the Territories and , held there like other
property under the protection of, the ,Constitu,
tion. So far, then, as Congress is eoncerneti,,thec
objection is not to what they have done, hut
what they may do hereafter—and it would
be contended that the apprehension of 'future'
danger was a good reason for a dissolution of
the Union-. •
He next•refers to the sot passed by the Terri-,
toriaLegislature Kansas, abolishing slavery
there," and declares that it obeli be, declared void
by th Judieliry , whenever the questionehall pe
presented in a legal form. The Suprenie 'Court
had solemnly decided that the Territorial Lcgis
lature had not thii power; yet through` the fac
tious temper of the times, the ,correettiesS. of its
decision.hadt been impugned, and an angry polit
ical conflict engendered. , Those who have ap
pealed from this Jtidgment to popular assemblies,
would," if thig 44u1d, invest the _Territorial 'Lek
islature with power to annul the rights of prop
arty. This power Congress is expressly fOrbid
den by the Federal Constitution to exercise.
The different State. Legislatures of the Union.are
forbidden to exercise it. It. can only : be ex.ern
cised by the people of a Territory when framittg
their Constitution, preparatory to their adrnisSioll
as a State into the Union. It was Only then that:
they could decide whether slavery ; should or
should not exist. If it were otherwise,'the right
of property in slaves would depend 00. , the
ing majorities of a Territorial Legislature, Such
a doctrine could not long influence any consider-:
able portion of the people, and afforded no 'good'
reason for a dissolution of the... Union. • '
He next refers to the acts passed in severer
States to defeat the Fugitive Slave Law, and re'A
marks that for these neither Congress nor Presi
dent should be 'held , responsible. They were
passed in violation of 'the Federal Constitution,
and were, therefoti, hull and 'void. The Fugi
tire. Slave Law had beed 'declared constitutional
by all the courts—State and Nationalwith the
single exception of it State. Court in :Wisconsin,,
whose, decision was after Wards reversed. lts i
validity had been eitablished over and over again..
It was founded on an express provision of the
Constitution, requiring that fugitive slaves
should be delivered up, and without this provis
ion, it is a well-known fact, that the Constitution
could, ,net have been adopted. The Fugitive
Slave low had been the law of the land under
one form or another from the days of . Washing-.
ton to the present., It would be the clear "duty
of the 'President elect, then, to see that it was
enforced With rigor, against, the conflicting en.
netments of State Legislatures. Should .he fail
in the performance of this .high duty he would
manifest a disregard for the Constitution and the
laws, to the deep injury of one-half the States of
the Commonwealth. To presume in advance
that he will thus violate . his duty, would be at
war with every priediple of justice and Christian
charity. Let us wait for the overt act. ~fre'reco
mmends that the State Legislatures - will repeal
their unconstitutional enactments, and remarks
that unless this be done without delay no human
power can save the Union. The Southern States
have a right , to demand this act of justice-from
the Northern States. If it should' be refused,
then the Constitution will have been wilfully
violated, in a provision essential to the domestic
security and happiness of the remainder: :Then
the injured States, after having used allpeaceful
measures of redress, would be justified in revo
lutionary resistance. He confines his remarks
to revolutionary resistance, because it has been
claimed that any State can secede at her sover
eign will and pleasure, without any violation of
the Constitution or constitutional rights of the
other States. That as each become parties to
the Union by the vote of its own people assem
bled-in convention, so in like manner she may
retire. In order to justify secession it must bo
the principle that federal government is a mere
voluntary association of States to be
at pleasure by any of the contracting parties.
If so, the Confederacy is a mere rope of sand, to
be.dissolved by the first adverse wave of public
opinion. These whole thirty-three States may
resolve themselves into so many potty; jarring,
and hostile provinces, each retiring whenever
any sudden excitement might impel. •By : this
process a Union might be broken into tunny
fragments in a few weeks, which cost our 'fore
fathers many years of privation to establish.
Such a principle is wholly inconsistent, with the
history of the Constitution which was framed with
great deliberation and care, and submitted to con
ventions of the people of the several-Stites for
ratification. ,Its provisiobe Were discussed at
great length in these bodies, composed of the
first men of the country. Its opponents ctinte:n‘
ed •that it conferred powers upon the Federal
Government dangerous to the rights of States,
while its advocates maintained that' under a fair
construction there was no foundation for such
charges'. In that mighty struggle. between the
first intellects of this or any other Country, it
never occurred to any, either among friends or
Opponents, to advocate or even to intimate
that their efforts would be vain,. because the
moment• that any State felt aggrieired she might:
secede. What a crushing argument would this
have proved against those who dreaded that
the rights of State might be endangered. The
truth is that not until many years after was
such a proposition ever conceived, and it was
then met and refuted by the conclusive argu
ments of Gen. Jackson. (Here he quotes at
length from Jackson's proclamation, and takes
very decided ground against the right of any
State to secede.) The President then takes up
the case of South Carolina,l defines his present
position, and says-he has given strict orders to
United States officers to act solely on the defen
si4e, and is much mistaken in their.cliaracter if
this defence will not be maintained. What is to
be the character of the relations between South
Carolina and the Federal Government, remains
to be defined and determined.
The President adds: It is beyond the power of
a State, like an individual, to yield a portion of
its sovereign rights to secure the remainder. In
the language of Mr. Madison, who has been
called the Father of the Constitution—. It was
formed by the States.; that, is, by the people in
each of the States acting in their highest sov
ereign capacity, and formed, consequently, by
the same authority which formed the. State Con
stitutions." Nor is the Government, says the.
President, less a Government in the strict sense
of the term, within the sphere of its powers than
the Governments created by several states.' It
is, like them, organized into legislative, execu
tive, and judiciary departments. The President
then argues that. the Union was designed to, be
perpetual, and that the powers of the Federal
Government embrace the very highest attributes
of national sovereignty—that the sword and the
purse are placed under, its control. The. Pres
ident then goes on to enumerate the powers of
the Federal Government and the disabilities of
the States. In short, adds the President, the
government created by the Constitution,' and de
riving its authority from the sovereign people of
each of the several States, has precisely the same'
right to exercise its power over the people of all
these States in the enumerated cases, that each
of them possesses over subjects not delegated to
the United States, but reserved to the States sep
arately, or to the people. To the extent of the
delegated powers, the Constitution of the United'
States is as binding upon - its people as though it
had been texually inserted thereon. Its framers,
adds the President, never intended to implant in
its bosom the seeds of its own destruction, nor
wore they at its creation, guilty of the absurdity
of providing for its own dissolution. They did
not fear, nor had they any reason to imagine that
the Constitution would ever be so interpreted as
to enable any State by her• own act, and - without
the consent at her sister States, to discharge her
people from all or any of her federal obligations.
The President, after, acknowledging . the., right
of resistance on the part of the governed against
the oppressions of their governments, which.-ex
ists independent of all constitutions, asks : What
in the meantime is the responsibility and true
position of the Executive? He is bound by a
solemn oath before God and the country to take
care that the laws be faithfully executed, and
from this obligation he cannot be absolved by
any human power. But what if the performance
of this duty, in whole or in part, has been ren
dered impracticable by events, over which be
01111 exercise no control? Such, at the pres
ent moment, is the case throughout The State
of South Carolina, so far as the laws of the Uni
ted States to secure the administration of justice
by means of the Federal Judiciary are concerned..
All the federal officers within its limits, through
whose agency alone these laws can be carried
into execution, have already resigned. We no
longer have a listrict Judge, or District Attorney,
or Marshal, in South Carolina. In fact, the
whole Federal Government necessary for the dis
tribution of remedial justice among the people,
has been demolished, and it would be difficult, if
not impossible, to replace it. The only acts on
the statute book bearing upon this subject, are
those of the 28th of February, 1795, and 3d of
March, 1807. These authorize the President,
after he shall have ascertained that the Marshal,
with his posse' comitatus, is unable to execute
civil or criminal process in any particular case,
to call forth the militia, and employ the army
and navy to aid him in performing this service,
having first, by proclamation, commanded the in
surgents to disperse and retire peaceably to their
respective abodes within a limited time. This
duty cannot possibly be performed in a State
where no, judicial authorities exist• to issue
process,,and where there is no marshal to execute
it, and where, even if there was such an officer,
the entire population would constitute one solid
combination to resist him. The same insuperable
obstacles do not lie in the way of executing the
laws for the collection of the customs ; the rev
, enue still continues to be collected, as heretofore,
at the Custom House in. Charleston, and should
the collector unfortunately resign. a successor
may be appointed to perform the .duty. In re
gard to the property of the United States in
South Carolina, which has been purchased for a
fair equivalent, by the consent of the State, for
the erection .of forts, magazines, arsenals, c., it
is dot believed that any attempt will be made to
expel the United States from this property by
force; 'but if otherwise, the officer in command
of the forts has received orders to act strictly on
the defensive. In such a contingency, the
responsibility for consequences 'would rightfully
rest upon the heads of the assailants.
After some further remarks upon this subject
the President. declares that be has no authority
to decide what shall be the relations between the
Federal Government and South Carolina, and
argues the question as to-whether the Constitu
tion has delegated to Congress the power to force
a State into submission which is attempting to
withdraw or has actually withdrawn from the
Confederacy, arriving at the conclusion, after
much serious reflection, that it has no such pow- •
er. The President solemnly invokes his coun
trymen to pause and deliberate before determin
ing to destroy the Union, the grandest temple
which has ever been dedicated to human freedom
since the world began. Re says that the slavery
question, like everything human will have its
day, and expresses the firm belief that it has passed
.the culminating point. But if in the midst of
the existing excitement, the. Union shall perish,
the evil may become irrepressible. Congress, he
says, can contribute much to avert it, by pro
posing and recommending to the Legislatures of
the several States the remedy for existing evils
which the Constitution has itself provided for
its own preservation. This has been tried at
different critical periods of our' history, and al
ways with eminent success. It is to be found in
the fifth article for its own amendment. Under
this article„pmendments have 'been proposed by
two-thirds of both houses of Congress, and have
been ratified by the Legislatures of three-fourths
of the severill States, - and have consequently be-:
come parts of the,Constitution. • -•
After some further remarks, the President
concludes' by alluding to the condition of
our foreign and domestic affairs when he en
tered upon the duties of his office, which were
not at all satisfactory, and when, he says, we
take a retrospect of what was then our condition,
and contrast this with its material prosperity, we
Nave abundant reason to return our thanks to
that merciful Providence who has never forsaken
us as a nation. , .
The President then alludes to onr foreign rela
tions, which are generally of a satisfactory char
acter. He also treats of the condition of the
country, and among other topics adverts to the
difficulties now existing in Kansas. -
Troubles in this afflicted Territory are again
rife. Capt. Montgomery, of former notoriety,
has again an organized band, and is reported as
committing depredations, and threatening the
border counties in Missouri. United States
troops, under General Harney, have been sent to
the scene of disturbance. One grievance is, the
expelling of settlers from reserved Indian lands;
another is, the sale of lands from actual settlers,
who are not able to pay the entrance money to
Government; a third is, the kidnapping of free
negroes who 'fled from Arkansas rather than be
sold into slavery. Reports are very numerous,
and are so contradictory that we know not bow
to get at the truth.
The Secession Movement.
' The telegraph still brings tidings awfully
threatening. Lettera and papers, with some
things very unfavorable, toilsome facts of a more
cheering character. We still think that actual
secession, except possibly by South Carolina;
will not be among the follies of the present gen
Our readers may wish to have, in their own
language, some of the sentiments of South Caro
liniaus. The Charleston lifereii7y, which until
lately hoped for Mr. Buchanan's protection up
to the 4th of March next, on abandoning that
hope, says :
"We certainly deprecate war with the IForthern
people through the General Governmetif; but
Mr. Buchanan may be Assured that- the.firstit4-

Cif, will be considered war. He may call it by
what name he pleases, but the sword will then be
the final and only arbiter between us. All hopes
(if lie has any) of a readjustment of the rela
tions between the two sections of the Union un
der one Government, will have ended, and ended
forever. Re is totally mistaken in supposing
'that South Carolina wishes to enter into a con
flict with Not a State in the Union, we
believe, has had more confidence in his adminis
tratien, than South Carolina. Our people will
reluetantly realize the fact that he will place - his
Administration in the van of the Abolition arty
of the North, to compel, by force of arum, a sub
mission by the South to their authority. But
when they do realize it, they will also realize how
utterly hopeless, how desperately fatal, must be
the continuance of any further union with the
people of the North: Nor do the people of South
Carolina desire, by the shedding of blood, to
drag the other States into the movement of dis
solution.' ' If such was our purpose, we 'could
inforce it any morning of the week. The forts
in our bay are within sight of Charleston. But
if he chooses to begin the game,of bloodshedding,
we shall not decline it, for we know as well as lie
does that it will drag the-,other Stoles into the
movement of dissolution.? Whilst the Banks of
the North are crashing around him, and bank
ruptcy sits in the Capitol, the sword, will be a
fitting 'accompaniment to the villainies and tyran
nies which have produced the present calamiteus
State of things. We arelready.
To this the Hew-York Times responds:
,‘‘ This, 'certainly, is not pleasnnt or com
forting language. We deplore it, and . the
spirit which prompts it., and the occurrence
of anything Which can give a shadow of
pretext for using it. ...But we should only
aggravate the evil by speaking of it in terms
which find no warrant in fact or in reason. If
South Carolina is determined upon secession, she
should make. the plunge with her eyes open.
She must face all the consequences—and among
them all, the most unquestionable is War. Not that
we wish it—not that thousands and tens of-thou
sands of good men among us would not weep the
bitterest tears they ever shed in their lives, over
so dismal, so dreadful a prospect. But there is
no possibility of escaping it."
All this looks threatening, but it by 'no means
takes away our hope. The Lard ream's. ' , Ar4,
the hearts of the people are for peace.

Dear. Sirs :—I. have used Dr. M'Lare's
Celebrated. Vermifuge, prepared by you, in my
family, and I do think it the best preparation
now in use for expelling worms from the human
system. My neighbors have also used it with
the same success. You are at liberty to use this
as you see fit. Yours, &c.,
The above is a sample of certifteates daily re
ceived by the proprietors, Fleming Bros., of
M'Lane's Celebrated Vermifuge'and Liver Pills.
We think we are safe, in saying they are the
most reliable and popplar remedies of the day„
Purchasers will be careful to ash. for Dr. If' Lane'

in comparison are worthless. Dr: M'Lane's

The' Royal spadron, with the Prince of Wales,
had a tediousitnd stormy paSshge,;from Portland: ,
Instead of ten or twelve days, the voyage occu
pied twenty-seven conisethere: Was,
no little anxiety about the Prince's safety. But
his haying a little ,taste of rough sea ,fare, , will
be no, injury to his future sympathy for-Eng
land's sailors.
The English exforese much delight at the re
ception of the Prince in the United States, and
they anticipate great political and social benefits
to result. Certainly no two nations have as deep
an interest in each others welfare, and none are
bound together by so many strong and endearing
ties. As the Prince was approaching England's
coast, Lora. Patmersfon, an invited guest of .the
Salters' Company, at a brilliant . banquet, , was
upon his feet, addressing the distinguished com
pany assembled upon the visit of the Prince of
Wales to the United States.
Of -Palmerston's address, the correspondent of
he North American says :
"It was to be expected," exclaimed his lord
ship, frequently interrupted by great and enthu
siastic cheering, "that when the future hope-of
England visited the subjects of her Majesty in.
our North American provinces; he would be re
ceiVed with that enthusiastic affection.which be
comes a loyal and an attached people.. •Qur an
ticipations have not been disappointed.
.'The re
ception of the Prince has been worthy of the
people who gave it , and honorable to the family
of which he is so distinguished a .member, and
We may hope that that visit will cement more
closely those ties which I trust are long destined•
to bind together that portion of the Queen's do
minions and the mother country. But we had
not an equal right to expect that when his Royal
Highness visited the United States he would be
received with anything more than the courtesy
which civilized nations accord to distingtiished
Members of the reigning house •of another
country. But I must say it has been most grati
fying to witness the cordiality, the heartfelt
kindness, the generous hospitality, and I may
say the enthusiastic delight with which that illus
trious Prince was welcomed by otar. cousins in
the United States. They have shown themselves,
indeed, to be a noble and a. generous people.
They have shown that they have not forgotten
the common stock from which they and we have
sprung ; and in spite of events which, if not
buried in oblivion, might have produced some
slight alienation between us, they received our
future sovereign—and I
.trust that future day
may be long Aistant—they received the oldest
son of our gracious sovereign, not as if he were
a stranger belonging to another land, but as if be
had been born in their own country, and had'been
a citizen of their own republic. I trust, gentle
men, that the remembrance of the generous
kindness thus exhibited by the people of the
United States will ever be cherished by the peo
ple of these kingdoms. I believe the memory of
the Prince's visit will long survive in the breasts
of the Ameriban nation, and that there mutual
recollections will tend more closely than ever to
knit together those two great people." The burst„
of cheering that followed these well conceived
observations of Lord Palmeriton, woke up 'the
echoes of the roof of the noble hall Of the Salt
ers' Company. Nothing could have passed off
more harmomonsly from the' outset to the close
than the visit of the Prince of Wales to Canada
andhhe United States; and may all the good an
ticipated from it come to pass. •

Roam, Nov. 9.—An extraordinary council of
Cardinals took place yesterday. The secret Com
mittee has collected the votes of Rome on the
question of annexation.
The Pope in accordance with annual custom,
resorted, on the 4th inst., to the church'.or San
Cario, in the Course, in gala equipage, escorted
by his noble guords and a detachment of dra
goons, a few of whom still constitute the effective
cavalry of the Papal army. French troops were
arrayed on the Plazas, and the civic or Palatine
soldiers filled the church. Both in coming and
going his Holiness was received with faint
cheers; but the feeling , was evidently partial, and
the general reception of the Papal cortege was
extremely cold, whilst the personal appearance
of the Pontiff was grave and careworn.. .
Sweden, which was always considered the
most intolerant of the Protestant States In Eu
rope with regard to religious liberty, (*here the
bishops constitute a political body of the' Stite,
land exercise considerable influence with the
government,) has just taken' an important step
on the path of civilization and clerical reform:
The King in accordanCe with the Legislative.
Chambers, has just' decreed' that every Jew who
has not boon condemned for any criminal action;
has permission to establish himself in Sweden
without any restriction, and to follow any call
ing, or to acquire property of any kind; under
the same circumstances as the Christians in that
country : Liberal minds have hailed this royal
decree with great satisfaction, and it M hoped
that the government.will also very soon liberate
the Roman. Catholics' of ,Sweden from the obsta
cles placed in the way of the exercises of their
religion sincO.l6o.
The English and French forces advanced to

It ie propoeed to establish, at Danville, Kentucky, a new
and original Quarterly Publication, to he called the DAN
VILLE QUARTERLY REVIEW—and to be conducted by a_
Society of gentlemen, of whom a portion are tame of those
connected with the Presbyterian Inatitations at that place,
and a portion reside eleewheta.
This publication is designed mainly for the exposition, ad
tancement and defense of the Christian Religion, Considered
in its purely Evangelical sense; and for open resistance to
whatever is hostile to it, or inconsistent with it in perfect
consistency with that chief design, its pages will be open to the
consideration of all other interests of man,
and the discussion
Of everything : that promotes or obstruets - any one of those
interests. The work is projected, and twill be controlled by
persons, all- of whom are. members of the' Presbyterian
Church in the United States of America, all of whom accept
the Standards of that Church in their obvious sense.
. .
The work will consist of about 17 pages in eaohluartoily
number—making about 700 pages to the yearly volume;
naveriess---more of its income'shall justify it. 'Rift designed
that its mechanical execution shall be at least equal to any
aimilai American publication: and strict punctuality is in
tended in the issue of every number. The price will be $3
per annum, payable on the receipt of the first number, with
the usual deduction to clubs.
Theobject of this published Prospectus is to ascertain pre
cisel3-, and at:ea - early a period as possible, whether or not the
projectors of-this work are correct in supposing that there is
such a necessity and demand for it, that the public patronage
will be sufficient' to cover the actual expenses of it. If it will
not. the. enterprise will be allowed to drop. If it will, the
fiti‘nuraber- will be issued Cary soon after that fact is ascer
tained: E'rery one friendly to the enterprise is therefore re
quested to obtain subscribers, and forward their names and
address, not later than the end of the current year; but no
money must be remitted until the first number is received by
the Subscriber.
