PteceUimcoiu. Written for FATHER AUIIAUAM. PAST, PRESENT AM) FITUIE. PART V. When we curry our imaginations and predictions forward one hundred years, considering the extraordinary progress we liave.iiiadcduring the past forty years, nothing, it seems, is impossible or too extra vacant. Taking fur granted that our Government will live, strengthen and improveit sell' fur a century to come, it is ;ut least an open and fair question whether or not all peoples and States throughout the world will ultimaU'ly heeome one people, and governed b y Hie one progressive republican system which we now enjoy onl y in its infancy. The great conflict between Liberty and Despotism; between the masses and their oppressor*, must terminate .some day, and that day, according to present indications, may not lie very far distant—the child may now occupy a place in the publie school who will live to enjoy citizenship under the one Government of the United World !

f MtfJJ. CHRISTMAS. 11V JEAN BONCOJCIt. When snow lies deep upon the ground, Ami winter winds are blowing, And on the hearth, with crackling blaze, The winter flres are glowing ; Then through the land a magic voice A pleasant song is humming, " Friends parted long shall meet ere long, For Christmas Day is coining." The school-boy hears it at his task, And his heart is lighter beating ; The plodding student lifts his head And thinks of a happy meeting ; To old and young, to rich and poor, The gentle voice is humming, " Friends parted long shall meet ere long, For Christmas Day is coining." Throughout U13 house a busy stir, The cook in glory reigning, The maids' soft dream of ihisletop, 'Midst graver cares disdaining; For. in her ears, the magic voice Another song is humming, " The Christinas pudding must be made, For Christmas Day is coming." Tho dreaming poet hears the voice, And it seems as bells were ringing, And angel choirs a Christinas song To all mankind were singing ; A...

Uut he reads and thinks; lias a keen insight; answers wisely and without waste of words any question put to him, and knows when and how to act as well as any man in the country.

— » m THE MESSAGE CONDENSED. That part of the President's Message which relates to our late National troubles, condensed, is substantially as follows: Gentlemen of the Rump: Anarchy prevails -caused by your arbitrary acts—your disregard of organic law. Your legislation during the last three years is a failure. It's unconstitutional. Virginia, Mississippi and Texs are yet excluded, and that's your fault. You have placed niggers over our white'brethreii of democratic persuasion, in the South, and this has destroyed the kindly relations heretofore existing betwixt the blacks and whiles -the masters and slaves—of the South. The whole country has been agitated. The federal constitution is the maijiui '¦Inula. Civil strife ceased in lSf'o. I went in with our fellows in the South to re-construct, and we agreed upon my policy, which was constitutional. I had the thing all cut and dry. But, you came in with your radicalism, and refused to go in for my way of fixing up things- just as...

JUSTICE TO WOMEN. Hon. F. E. Spinner, the J reasurer of the I'nited States, recommends in his report to Congress, that in the matter of salary the female clerks be put on equality with male clerks. The highest salary now paid to female clerks is siMKI. while male clerks receive SL'MMl, for 'the same services. There is no sense, reason injustice in this discrimination.
