In the two former he had put on the Roll those having credentials from the present governors. No certificate had been received from the third District of Missouri. With reference to Colorado the clerk said Belford a certificate showed he was elected in october 1876, at a time not authorized by Law Patterson presented Only certified copies of votes the clerk therefore declined to place either name on the Roll.

A Resolution continuing the committees As existing at tile close of the last session was agreed to. The presidents message was read As follows fellow citizens of the Senate and House of representatives the adjournment of the last Congress without making appropriations for the support of the army for the present fiscal year has rendered necessary a suspension of payments to the officers and men to the sums due to them for services rendered after the 30th Day of june last. The army exists by virtue of the statutes which prescribe its number regulate its organization and employment and which fix the pay of its officers and men and declare their right to receive the same at stated period. The statutes however do not authorize the payment of the troops in the absence of specific appropriations therefor. The Constitution has wisely provided that no Money shall be drawn from the Treasury but in consequence of appropriations made by Law and it has also been declared by the statute that a a no department of the government shall expend in any one fiscal year any sum in excess of the appropriation made by Congress for that fiscal we Hare therefore an army in service authorized by Law and entitled to be paid but no funds Are available for that purpose. It May also be said As an additional incentive to the prompt action by Congress that since the commencement of the fiscal year the army though without pay has been constantly and actively engaged in arduous and dangerous service in the performance of which both officers and men have discharged their duty with Fidelity and courage and without complaint. These circumstances in my judgment constitute an extraordinary occasion for Congress to be convened in Advance of the time prescribed by Law for your meeting in regular session. The importance of speedy action upon this subject on the part of Congress is so Manifest that i venture to suggest the propriety of making the necessary appropriations for the support of the army for the current year at its present maximum Mimer dial strength of 25,000 men leaving for future consideration All questions relating to an increase or decrease of the number of enlisted men.

It would be unjust to the troops now in service and whose pay is already largely in arrears should it be postponed until after Congress shall have considered All the questions Likely to arise in the Effort to fix the proper limit to the strength of the army estimate of appropriations for the support of the military establishments for the fiscal year ending june 30,1878, were it transmitted to Congress by the former Secretary of the Treasury. At the opening of its session in december last these estimates were modified by the present Secretary so As to conform to the present requirements As now renewed amounting to $32,436,764.98, Aud having been transmitted to both houses of Congress Are submitted for your consideration. There is also required by the Navy department $2,003,861 this sum is made up of $1,446,688, due to officers and enlisted men for the last Quarter of tile last fiscal year $311,953, due for advances made by the fiscal agent of the government in London for the support of the foreign service $50,000 due to the naval Hospital fund $150, he due for arrearage of pay to officers and $42,219 for the support of the Marine corps. There will also be needed an appropriation of $262,-535 to defray the unsettled expenses of tile United states courts for the fiscal year ending june 30 last now due to attorneys clerks commissioners and marshals and for rent of court rooms the support of prisoners and other deficiencies. A part of the building of the Interior department was destroyed by fire on the 24th of last month and some immediate repairs and temporary structures have in consequence become necessary estimates for which will be transmitted to Congress immediately and an appropriation of the requisite funds is respectfully recommended. The Secretary of the Treasury will communicate to Congress in connection with the estimates for the appropriations for the support of the army for the current year estimates for such other deficiencies in the different branches of the Public service As require immediate action and cannot without inconvenience lie postponed until the regular session. I take this Opportunity to invite your attention to the propriety of adopting at your present session the necessary legislation to enable the people of the United states to participate in the advantages of the International exhibition of the agriculture Industry and Fine arts which is to he held at Paris in 1878, and in which this government has been invited by the government of France to take part. This invitation was communicated to this government in May 1876, by the min ister of France at this capital and a copy flier of was submitted to the proper committees of Congress at its last session but no action was taken upon the subject. The department of state has received Many letters from various parts of tile country expressing a desire to participate in the exhibition and numerous applications of a similar nature have also been made at Hie United states legation at Paris. The department of state has also received official advice of the Strong desire on the part of the French government that the United states should participate in this Enterprise and space has hitherto been and still is reserved in the exhibition buildings for the use of exhibitors from the United states to the exclusion of other parties who have been applicants therefor. In order that our indnstrie8 May be properly represented at the exhibition an appropriation will be needed for the payment of the salaries and expenses of the commissioners for the to Asp rotation of goods and for other purposes in connection with the object in View As May next is the time fixed for the opening of the exhibition. If our citizens Are to share the advantages of this International Competition for the Trade of other nations the necessity of immediate action is apparent. To enable the United states to co operate in the International exhibition which was held in Vienna in 1873, Congress then passed a Resolution making an appropriation of $200, too and authorizing the president to appoint a certain number of practical artisans and scientific men who should attend exhibition and report their proceedings and observations to him. A provision was also made for the appointment of a number of honorary commissioners. I have Felt that prompt action by Congress in accepting the invitation it the government of France is of so much interest to the people of this country and so suitable to the cordial relations Between the governments of the two countries that the subject might properly be presented for attention at your present session. The government of Sweden and Norway has addressed an official invitation to this government to take part in the International prison Congress to be held at Stockholm next year. The problem Lii he the Congress proposes to study a a How to diminish crime a is one in which All civilized nations have an interest in common and the Congress of Stockholm seems Likely to prove Hie most important convention Ever held for the study of this grave question. Under authority of a joint Resolution of Congress approved feb. 16, 1875, a commission was appointed by my predecessor to represent the United states upon that occasion and the prison Congress having been at the Earnest desire of tile swedish government postponed to 1878, the commission was renewed by me. An appropriation of $8,000 was made in the sundry civil service aet of 1875 to meet the expenses of the commissioners. I recommend the re appropriation of that sum for the same purpose the former appropriation having been covered into the Treasury and being no longer available for the purpose without further action by Congress. The subject is brought to your attention at this time in View of the circumstances which Render it highly desirable that the commissioner should proceed to the discharge of his important duties immediately. As the several acts of Congress provide for detailed reports from the different departments of the government at the beginning of the regular annual session i defer until that time any further reference to the subjects of Public interest.

The sides of the Road Are literally lined with skeletons of horses and cattle. The state of affairs in Sim Nitza is indescribable and renders walking in town impossible. Half of the inhabitants and a Large portion of the military have the Danube fever typhus or dysentery. The Bridge across the Danube is very shaky and does not look As if it would last Many Days. The i Urgero amp Sim Nitza railway is progressing slowly and there is not much Prospect of its being ready this Winter. The works connected with the Barracks and hospitals also move very slowly.

Subsequently he was appointed by Grant assistant Secretary of the Treasury. It is believed that he made the office profitable to himself but being profligate in his habits he accumulated nothing.

Washington oct. 16. The following is the statement of the deficiencies for which appropriations Are asked by the Secretary of the Navy pay of Navy amount due Seligman bros., London miscellaneous claims arising upon arrears of pay Etc., naval Hospital fund pay of tile Marine corps other deficiencies exclusively for construction and repairs arising out of e tracts with individuals for clothing steam machinery Timber Etc. These will be communicated at the approaching j�?Tesji.�?~5r session. The Secretary states that the difficulties attending the administration of the finances of his office have grown out of the diversion of the appropriations from the special objects to which they have been applied by Law and their expenditures for other and different objects for which appropriations have been insufficient i his has been occasioned by the fact that Congress has frequently appropriated less than the wants of the service demanded. This was especially the Case last year the Secretary continues that it has been supposed necessary sometimes to Barrow temporarily from one fund to Aid another hut it does not seem that Auy such justification can exist in cases where the borrowing is designed to make up deficient appropriations for special purposes. Such a course be thinks would be manifestly attended with the consequence that it would enable the Secretary to substitute his own official discretion for the requirements of Law and there would be no Legal limit to this discretion. Deficiencies would exist or not according to his pleasure. He is unwilling to assume this responsibility but prefers to administer the affairs of the department in strict obedience to the will of Congress. Thus deeming at the commencement of his service he states that he has not allowed any portion of the appropriations for the present fiscal year to lie expended before the ,h4 a 4 i a c year commenced. His object primarily was to secure a system of administration by Means of which the annual appropriations of the department can be More easily and accurately ascertained and the causes of a deficiency be More certainly and satisfactorily known. The Secretary does not think it right that the department shall seek to accomplish results not contemplated or directed by Congress. Tile department is a creature of Law and exists Only at the will and pleasure of Law. Tile Secretary is responsible for not doing what the Law directs to be done but is not responsible for failing to accomplish what the Law does not direct. The Secretary states that acting on this principle he found it necessary to omit the pay of the officers and men of the Navy for the last Quarter of the last fiscal year As the appropriation made by Congress was insufficient and it was not possible to make payment without drawing upon the appropriation for the present fiscal year in Advance. 8o lie has regarded it As a better course to treat the deficiency As belonging to the last fiscal year to avoid any deficiency for the present year unless it shall arise from necessity out of omission to make tile necessary appropriation this result cannot be fully accomplished without the Aid and action of Congress to he so rendered As to enable the business properly chargeable to the last fiscal year to be closed up As far As possible by the payment of the existing indebtedness to the officers and men of the Navy so that the department will be enabled to confine All appropriations for the present fiscal year to the objects and within the amounts fixed by Law. If thereby some of the branches of the service suffer temporarily Aud some objects remain a accomplished it is better they should remain so until additional appropriations Are in Arf e. Thun that the department should exercise the discretionary Power of creating deficiencies. The present deficiency in the fund for the pay of the Navy has continued from year to year Back to the late War. It is not therefore chargeable to any one year but Bas been caused both by insufficient estimates and insufficient appropriations the latter having been for eight or nine years considerably less than the estimates. This state of facts suggests the inquiry How has the department been enabled to pay for a series of years a sum larger than the appropriations for the same years that is with a continuous deficiency the solution can Only be reached by ascertaining How and from what appropriations Money has been placed in the hands of paymasters on foreign stations. After entering into a lengthy discussion of the manner in which Money for the pay of officers and men has been borrowed from one fund and another the Secretary states that the amount annually due to the officers and enlisted men of the Navy is settled by statute and the department has no control Over it and has no such discretion As will enable it to economize in the annual expenditure even if desirable to do so. There is now due the sum of $1,446,688, for which it is necessary to ask an appropriation by Congress. There is also due for the same Quarter the sum of $311,953, advanced for the foreign service by the financial agents of the government in London exclusively of the sum Shewn on the pay Rolls. These sums added make $1,756,841. There is also due to the officers on account of arrearage and difference of pay $150,000, which added to the foregoing makes $1,908,641 due for the department of the Navy and necessary to be appropriated for that purpose. There is now due to the Hospital fund $50,000, which in consequence of the relation Between this and the pay fund should be added to the foregoing making the total deficiency $1,953,641. The pay of the officers and enlisted men in the Marine corps was deficient at the close a of the last fiscal year by the sum of $42,219, for which an appropriation i6 necessary. This added to the amount above stated makes a total deficiency asked for by the Secretary of $2,003,861. This appropriation it is believed will enable the department to Avail itself More satisfactorily of the advantages arising from More prompt settlements of the accounts of paymasters in making up its annual estimates of expenditures and thereby enable Congress to ascertain with greater accuracy the sums annually necessary for the support of the Navy. It is also believed that it will secure greater Economy in expenditures. _ married after an hours courtship.
