Owing to recent deaths In the fam i ily he wasunaldeto present the message : until Tuesday, when it was read In Ihe i presence of IhhIi house. I In the senate, so soon as the secretary llm ished reading the journal, a messenger I handed him the president's message, which ; he proceeded to read. The commercial and business statistics giv en in Ihe first part of the message and the sarvat!r paragraphs as , to the "imposed etlocl of a land lor revenue scs'ined to meet general approval on Ihe re publican side of the chandsfr. They at tracted but little attention on the other side. Poring the reading Ihe democratic senators for Ihe most part were chatting listlessly , with eu. h other or attending to their cor ressMiih'i,ce, while the republican enttlors - paid the president the compliment of gu ing In in undivided attention, IX ttIK Hi'l sK. The reading of the message in the house ; met wild hill little attention. Many n ein-U-rs h it the hall, preferring to studv the . recxonmendaliou of the president at leis ure, at home. Those who remained entered into conversation or devoted themselves to a jserusal of the newspaisrra. At the con clusion of the reading, the message was re ferred to the committee of the whole. The president says: In submitting my an nual message to congress I have great satis faction in being able to sav that the general conditions affecting the commercial and in dustrial interests of the I'nlted Slates aretn the highest degree favorable. A comparison of the eisting conditions with those of Ihe most favored period In the history of the country will itself show that such a degree of prosperity and so general a diffusion of the comforts of life were never before enjoyed by our people. The total wealth of the country in laafin,l.'VM',KiM. J ism it amounted to lif-VHtUti i.toi, an increase of 2s? per cut. j If any are discontented with their state here, if any believe that the wage or prices, the return for honest toil, are inadequate, i they should not fail to remember that there I is no other country in lbs world where the conditions, that seem to them hard, would) ; not he accepted as highly pruasrous. The English agriculturist would be glad to ex change the returns of his labor for those of the American farmer, and the Manchester workmen their wages for those of their fel lows at Fall River. I believe that Ihe pro tective system which How for something like thirty years has prevailed in our leg's lation has been a mighty instrument for Ihe development of our national wealth, and a most powerful agency in protecting (be homes of our workingnien Irom the Inva sion of want. I have felt a most solicitous interest to preserve to our working people rates of wages that would give not only dailv bread, but supplv a comfortable mar- gin for those home attractions and family I comforts and enjoyments without which I life is neither hopeful nor sweet. 'They are ' American citizens, a part of the great -oplc for whom our constitution nud government ! were framed and instituted, and it cannot lie a perversion of that constitution to leg islate so as to preserve in their homes the comfort, independence, loyalty and sense of interest in the government which are essen tial to good citizenship, in H-ai-e which will bring them, as in lsnl, to the defense of the flag w hen it is assailed, Til K RUt'LT or Till 11.HTIOS. It is not my pnriwse to renew here the ar gument in favor of a protective tariff. The result ol Ihe recent election must be accepted as having introduced a new ollcy. Vie must assume that the present tariff, con structed us)ti the lines of protection, Is to be repealed, and that there is to lie substi tuted for it a tarilllaw constructed solely for revenue: that no duty is to he higher because the increase will keep oien an American mill or keep up the wages of an American workingtnan, but that in every case such a rate of duty is to lie imposed as will bring to the treasury the largest revenue. The contention has not been between schedules, hut between principles, and it would he of fensive to suggest that the prevailing party will not carry into legislation the principles advocated by it, and the pledges given the people. The tariff bills passed by the house of representatives at the last session were, as I supposed, even in the opinion of their promoters, inadequate sun justified only by the fact that the senate and house of repre sentatives were not in accord, and that a general rev ision could not then-lore lie un dertaken. 1 recommend that the whole subject ol tariff lie left to the Incoming con gress. His a matter of regret that this work must be delayed for at least three months, for the threat of great tarilt changes intro duces so much uncertainty that an amount, not easily estimated, of business inaction and of diminished production will necessa rily result. It is possible, also, that this uncertainty may result in decreased reve nues from customs duties, for our iner. chants w ill make cautious ortlers for foreign goods in view of the prospect of tarlir reduc tions ami the uncertainty as to when it will take effect. FORECASTS or THE rROTKt TIOWISTS. Those who have advocated a protective tariff can well afford to have their disastrous forecasts of a change of policy disappointed. If a system of customs rules can be framed that will set the Idle wheels and looms of Europe in motion, and crowd our ware bouses with foreign made goods, and at the same time keep our own mills busy; that will give us an increased participation In the " markets of the world" of a greater value than Ihe borne market that we sur render; that will give increased work to for eign workmen upon products to lie con sumed by our people without diminishing the amount of work to be done here; that will enable the American manfacttirer to pay to his workmen from 60 to 100 per cent, more in w ages than is paid the foreign mill, CAEILTOH Aro still soiling goods as low as any houso in tho State.

CAt'SIS ION KUnlClllll, If that experience shall demonstrate that the present rates ol wam are thereby main tained, or Increased, either absolutely or in their purchasing nvcr; that the aggregate volume of work to be dune in this country is increased, or even iiiaiutiiiue.1 ; that there are more, or as many, days' work in a year, at as good or better wuges, received by the American workman as has been the ruse under the protective system, every one will rejoice. A general prnresa of wage reduc tion cannot be contemplated by any patri otic citizen without the gravest apprehen sion. It may lie indeed, I believe Is- pos sible for the American maiitifiicturer to rouicte suci eisfully with his foreign rival III many branches nf production without the defense of protective duties, if the pay mils are eitiulicd ; hut the cunllict that stands between the producer and that result and the distress of our workingnien w hen It Is attained, are not pleasant to contempliite, the society of the unemployed, now hold ing Its frequent and threatening parades In the streets of foreign cities, should not be allowed to acquire an American domicile.

Like Telling a Secret. A Rtory in told and it is a true story that over seventy per cent, of all the baking powders Bold contain either alum or ammonia, and many of these powders contain both. Tho ill effects upon the system of food raised by alum or ammo nia powders are the more dangerous because of their insidious character. It would be less dangerous for the people were it fatal at once, for then such food would bo avoided, but their baneful action because imperceptible at first and slow in its ' advances, is no less certain. Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is declared by all authorities as free from alum, ammonia or any other adul terant. Its purity has never been questioned, and while it docs finer and better work, it costs no more at retail than many of the adulterated powders.
