The president recommends Early re sumption. Washington feb. 3. The following is the presidents Mes Sage to Congress on the subject of the resumption of specie payments to the Senate and House of representatives by act of Congress approved Jan. 14, 1875, to provide for the resumption of specie payments the 1st of january 1879, is fixed As the Date when such resumption is to be sin. It May not he desirable to fix an earlier ate when it shall actually become obligatory upon the government to redeem outstanding Legal tender notes on presentation but it is certainly most desirable and will prove most beneficial to every pecuniary interest of the country to hasten the Day when the paper circulation of the country and Gold shall have equal values. At a later Day if currency and Coin should retain equal values it might become advisable to authorize or direct resumption. I believe the time has come when by a simple act of the legislative Branch of tile government this most desirable result can be attained. I am strengthened in this View by the course Trade has taken in the last two years and by the strength of the credit of the United states at Home and abroad. For the fiscal year ending june 30,1876, the exports of the United states exceeded the imports by $120,213,102, but our exports include $40,569,621 of specie and Bullion in excess of imports of commodities. For six months of the present fiscal year from july i 1876, to Jan. I 1877, the excess of exports Over imports amounted to $107,544,869, and imports of specie and Bullion exceeded the exports of precious Metal by $6,192,147. In the same time the actual excess of exports Over imports for six months exclusive of specie and Bullion amounted to $113,737,040, showing for the time being the accumulation of specie and Bullion in the country amounting to More than $6,000,000 in addition to the product of these metals for the same period a total increase of Gold and Silver for six month not far Short of $60,000,000. It is very evident that unless this great increase of precious metals can be utilized at Home in such a Way As to make it in some manner remunerative to holders it must seek a foreign Market As surely As would any other product of the soil or of manufacture. Any legislation which will keep Coin and Bullion at Home will in my judgment Saon bring about practical resumption and will add the Coin of the country to the circulating medium thus securing healthy inflation of sound currency to the great advantage of every legitimate business interest. The act to provide for tile resumption of specie payments authorized the Secretary of the Treasury to Issue Bonds of either of the descriptions named in the act of Congress approved july 4, 1870, entitled a an act to authorize the refunding of the National debt a for not less than in Gold. With the present value of 4% per cent. Bonds in the markets of the world they could be exchanged at for Gold thus strengthening the Treasury to meet final resumption and to keep the excess of Coin Over the demand pending its permanent use circulating Al odium at Home. All that would further be required would be to reduce the volume of Legal tender now in circulation. accomplish this i would suggest an act authorizing the Secretary of the Treasury to Issue 4 per cent Bonds with forty years to run before maturity to be exchanged for Legal tenders whenever presented in sums of $50, or any multiple thereof the whole amount of such Bonds however not to exceed $150,000,000. increase tile Home demand for such Bonds i would recommend that they he available for Deposit in the United states Treasury for Hanking Pur poses under the provisions of the Law relating to National Banks. I would suggest further that the National Banks be required to retain a certain per cent of the Coin interest received by them from blinds deposited with the Treasury to secure their circulation. I would also recommend the repeal of the third Section of the joint Resolution for the Issue of Silver Coin approved july 22, 1876, limiting subsidiary Coin and fractional currency to c50,000,000. I am satisfied that if Congress will enact some such Law As will accomplish the end suggested they will give Relief to the country instant in its effect and for which they will receive the gratitude of the whole people. U. Grant. Executive mansion feb. 3, 1877. A young1 couple in Sandusky. A Young Man and Young woman Are now passing through a terrible ordeal of agonizing suspense.

Those who have been there know How it is themselves the lovers eagerly scan the daily papers and devour with avidity everything touching on the vexed political question. The bet which they made is As follows if Tilden should be inaugurated president the Young Man is to marry the Young lady but if Hayes should be inaugurated president the Young lady is to marry the Young Man. The counting of the electoral votes and the announcement of the result is anxiously awaited As that and that Only can decide which one of the parties is to marry the Ohio Register. Ohio news items.

Was Farragut lashed to the rigging ? a writer a Scribner for february who was an Eye witness of the Battle in Mobile Bay takes the negative of the above question. We quote a part of the account a a when the Fleet had crossed the bar and was inside of Sand Island and had approached to within about one mile and a Quarter of fort Morgan Admiral Farragut coolly and deliberately ascended the starboard main rigging and halted just beneath the top. Passing his Arm up through the a Lubbers Hole a he seized the foot of the Pilot Martin Freeman by name who was standing in the Mai top giving orders to the helmsman. The signal quartermaster in obedience to the orders of capt. Drayton took up a Hammock lashing to secure the Admiral to the shrouds so that in Case he should be killed his body would not fall overboard or on the deck but by Freeman a advice the Admiral would not allow it to be passed around him. The quartermaster returned with his lashing to the deck and Farragut the Brave passed the Long line of torpedoes and the Confederate forts and Fleet unscathed while still clinging to the foot of his trusty old Pilot Martin Freeman. A a this is the truth which the historian should receive and record if he chooses to make note of what was but an incident in that terrible action. Many survivors of that Day will vouch for the above account. As for Martin Freeman he still lives in the immediate Vicinity of the Bay where the Battle was fought being the principal keeper of Horn Island Lighthouse in Mississippi sound. Should anyone Chance to question this writers assertion in regard to the above matter he is respectfully referred to or. Freeman who was probably better acquainted at the time with the movements of Admiral Farragut than any other individual in the fleets capt. Percival Drayton perhaps excepted and he is known As the heroic and Loyal son of South Carolina and Fleet Captain of the West Gulf Squadron. A the philosophy of Admiral Farragut chosen position is easily explained. During the noise of the Battle he naturally desired to be so stationed that when no human voice could be heard aloft should it be necessary for him to communicate with the Pilot by tightly grasping the foot of that person the signal would be noticed and As a fact or. Freeman did respond and by bending Down Lent his ear to the 4 Lubbers Hole for such orders As the Admiral wished to give in reference to the above the following appears in the Philadelphia press 44 Admiral Farragut placed himself in the port main rigging of the flagship Hartford As soon As the line of Battle was formed and maintained that position until the firing of the guns had become so rapid and the smoke so dense that it became necessary to take a higher position to see Over the smoke. He then took the position in the buttock rigging where with his feet on the rat lines and his hand clinching the buttock shroud he was Able to watch Over and direct the movements of the Fleet. He had a piece of rat line or sign a1-h Alii Ard stuff thrown Over his right shoulder one end of which was hanging free. As it would be very unlikely that a Man would have a lashing and not use it it would be far better to give him the Benefit of the doubt and infer that he did lash himself which i earnestly believe. No one during that engagement had a better Opportunity for observation than myself As i was holding a conversation with the Admiral from the time he entered the rigging until he took the position in the buttock rigging which placed him out of earshot. The Admiral would have had an Arm As Long As the main to Gallant studding sail booming order to have held the Friendly grip upon the foot of his reliable Pilot or. Martin Freeman who is spoken of in the article from Scribner a and retain his position in the rigging at the same time. Should any of your readers question this assertion i would respectfully refer them to commander j. Crittenden Watson who at that time was the admirals Flag lieutenant and was stationed in close proximity during that celebrated engagement to convey messages to Fleet capt. Drayton. 44 Meta comets a signal Nevada does not want Yon. The Virginia Nev Enterprise says 44 folks from abroad Are coming to Virginia every Day.
