I've packed my box and corded it, and seen my boys to bed, And now I'm in the drawing-room and stand ing on my head ; I really can't contain myself, I shout and rub my hands Oh, won't I built a castle with a moat upo...

On Tuesday he a: rived in the city, briuging with him a large stone ligure of a man which he had unearthed at the head of a long, dry arroyo about six miles north of the residence of P. K.

THE PltEIDEM'S MESSAGE. IUoie-CUizen of the Senate and Itoute of Iiepretentativct : The adjournment of the last Congress without making appropriations for the support of the army for the present fiscal year hns rendered necessary a sus pension of pnymeuts to the officers and men of the sums due them for services rendered after the 80th day of June last. Tho army exists by virtue of statutes which prescribe its ntirabcrs and regu late its organization and employment, and which fix the pay of its oltice'rs and men and declare their right to receive the same at stated periods. The statutes, however, do not authorize the payment of the troops in the absence of specific appropriations. Therefore the Consti tution has wisely provided that ."no money sVall be drown from the treasury but in consequence of appropriations made by law ;"' and it has also been- de clared by statute that "no department of tho government shall expend in any one fiscal year any Bum in excess of ap nppropriations m...
