we do not suppose there is one among

a large portion of that party has been
led by those loaders to believe that
such is not the case, and the dissatis

President's Message.
The following is the text of the Presi
dent's njossBge concerning tbe electoral bill :
I fujluw the example heretofore occasion
ally presented of commuoi ating in this
mode my approval ol ao act to provide for
and regulate tbe counting of tbe votes for
President and Vice President and the decis
ion of questioos arising thereon, because of
my apprehension or the imminent peril to
the institutions of tbe country, from whlck,
in my juifgment, it affords a wise aod con
stitutional rneaoa of escape. For the first
time in tbe history ol our country, under
the constitution as it now Is, a dispute ex
ists with regard to tbe result of an electioo
for Chief Magistrate of tbe nation. It is
understood on the disposition of disputes
touching the electoral votes caA at the late
election by one or more of the States de
pends the question whether one or tbe other
of the candidates for President is tbe law
ful Chief Magistrate. The importance of
having clearly ascertained by a procedure
regulated by law, which of tbe two citizens
has been elected, and of having tbe right to
this high office, recognized ind cheerfully
agreed in by all the people of tbe Republic
cannot be overestimated, tnd leads aw to
express to Congress and the nation my
great satisfaction at the adoption of a meas
ure that affords an orderly means of deciding
gravely exciting questions. While tbe his
tory of our country in its earlier period
shows that the President of the Senate bos
counted the votes and declared the standing,
our whole history shows that in no instance
of doubt or dispute has be exercised the pow
er of deciding, and the two bouses of Con
gress has disposed of all such disputes, al
though in no instance hitherto have they
beeo such that their decision could essen
tially affect the result. For the first time
then the government of the United States
is dow brought to fuce tbis question, As
one evil to result io others, under conditions
not the best calculated to produce agree
ment or induce calm feeling in the several
braenhes ot the government or among the
people of the country in a case where, as
now, tbe result is involved, it is the bivhest
duty of the law making power to provide in
advance a constitutional, orderly and just
method of executing the Constitution in
tbis most interesting and critical clause of
its provisions. 1'be doing so, fur from be
ing a compromise of right, is the enforce
ment of right and an execution of power con
ferred by the Constitution oo Cougress. I
think this orderly method has been secured
by tbis bill, which, appealing to tho Con
stitution and as a guide io ascertaining the
rights, provides a means of deciding ques
tions of single leturns tbrougi the direct
action of Congress and in respect to double
returns by a tribunal of iuquiry whose deci
sions stand unless both bouses of Congress
shall concur in determining otherwise, thus
securing a definite disposition of all questions
of dispute, in whatever aspect they may arise
with or without this law. As all of the
States have voted, and as a tie vcte is Im
possible, it must be that one of the two
candidates has been eleeted ; it would be
deplorable to witness an irregular contro
versy as to which of tbe two should receive
or which should continue to hold the office.
In all periods of our history, no controversy
bas arisen as to tbe succession or choice ot
chiels of States, and no party orcitisen who
loves their coontry and its free institutions
can sacrifice too much of mere feeling in
preserving through the upright force of law,
their country front tbe smallest danger to
its peace on such occasions, and it can not
be impressed too firmly id the heart of all
tbe people that true liberty and real progress
can exist through truthful adherence to tbe
constitutional law. the bill purports to
provide only for a settlement of questions
arising from the recent elections. The 'fact
that such questions can arise, demonstrates
the necessity, which I cannot doubt, will
before long be supplied by permanent gen
erul legislation to methods which have not
been contemplated in the constitution or
laws of tbe eounlry. The bill may not be
perfect and its provisions may not be such
as would be best applicable to all future
occasions; but it is calculated to meet the
prnxent condition of questions and of the
country The country is agitated ; it needs
and it desires peace and quiet and harmony
between all parties and all sections. Its in
dustries are arrested, labor unemployed, cap
ital idle and enterprise puralyzed by reason
of doubt, anxiety and uncertainty of a
double claim to the chief magistracy of tbe
nation. It wants to be assured of the result
ol the election. It will be accepted without
doubt from the supporters of the disap
pointed candidate and that its highest officer
hall not hold his place with a questioned
right. Relieving the4 bill will secure these
ends I give it uiv signature.

From tbe age of forty-five to fifty, woman
has arrived at a critical period of ber exis

across it is a bridge, called "tbe torn of life"
beyond it is a delightful garden. The path
is beset with danger, and guarded by the
fierce dragons of disease. Dropsy, Erysip

orders too numerous to mention ; but armed
and prepared by Holloway's famous Pills,
she will pass with security into those rxan-

of life sets io the serene evening of old age.
Negligence at this season is productive of
tbe most Irightlnl consequemesnd death it

of life. Tbe nervousness, Bushes and faint

may be all prevented by a timely recourse
to these uncompsruble remedies.
