Jav is. Veto message. Following is Tho full text of Tho president s message voting Tho River and Harbor Bill to the House of representatives having watched with much interest Tho Progress of House Bill no. 0,212, entitled an act malting appropriations for the construction repair Aud preservation of certain works on Rivers and harbours and for other purposes and having Sinco it was received carefully examined it after mature consideration i am constrained to return it herewith to the House of representatives in which it originated without my signature Aud with my objections to its passage. Many appropriations in Tho Bill Aro clearly for the general welfare and most Beneficent in their character. Two of Tho objects for which provision is made Wero by to considered so that 1 Felt it my duty to drool to them the attention of Congress. In my annual Mossyge in i Sembor Lait i urged Tho vital importance of legislation for reclamation of Tho niarhos and for Tho establishment of Harbor lines along Tho Potomac front. In april last by special message i recommended an appropriation for Tho improvement of Tho Mississippi River. It is not acc ossuary that i say that when my signature would Mizuo the Bill appropriating for those Aud other valuable National objects a Law it is with great reluctance and Only under a Soonbo of duty to at i withhold it. My principal objection to the Bill is that it contains appropriations for purposes not for common Difonso or general welfare and which do not promote Commerce among Tho states. These provisions on the contrary Aro entirely for Tho Benefit of the particular localities in which it is proposed to make the improvements. I regard such appropriation of Public Money As beyond the Powers Given by Tho Constitution to Congress and Tho president i feel Moro bound to withhold my signature from Tho Bill because of Peculiar oils which manifestly result from thib infraction of the Constitution. Appropriations of this nature to be devoted purely to local of boots tend to Iner Easo in number and amount. As citizen a of one state find that Money to raise which in common with Tho whole country they Are taxed is to to expended for local improvements in another state they demand similar heu fits for themselves and it is not unnatural that they should seek to indemnify Thon solves for such of Tho Public funds by securing appropriations for similar improvements in their own neighbourhood. Thus As Tho Bill becomes Moro objectionable it secures More support. This result is inevitable and necessarily follows neglect to observe Tho constitutional limitations imposed on the lawmaking Power. Appropriations for River and Harbor improvements have under Tho influences to which i have alluded increased year by your out of proportion to Tho Progress of the country great As that has been. In 1870 Tho aggregate was #3.07d,9 0 in 1875, if 6,048,-517.50 in 188u, if8,97 i,5utand in 1881, $11,-451,300, Whilo by Tho present act there is appropriated 18,743,875. White feeling every disposition to leave to the legislature Tho responsibility of determining what amount should to appropriated for the purposes of Tho Bill so Long As appropriations Aro confined to the objects indicated by Tho Grant of Congress i cannot escape the fact that As part of Tho Law making Power of Tho government the duty devolves upon to to withhold my signature from a Bill containing appropriations which in my opinion greatly exceed in amount the needs of Tho country for the present fiscal year. It being Tho usage to provide Modey for these purposes by an annual appropriation Bill the president is in often directed to expend so Large an amount of Money within so Brief a period that expenditure can not be made economically Aud advantageously. Extravagant expenditure of Public Money is an evil not to to Mous ured by Tho value of that Money to Tho people who Aro taxed for it. Thoy sustain greater injury in Tho demoralizing effects produced upont.boso who Aro entrusted with official duty through All the ramifications of government. These objections could to removed and every constitutional purpose readily obtained should Congress enact that one half Only of the aggregate amount provided for in the Bill to for expenditure dining Tho fiscal year and that the sum so appropriated be expended Only for such object named in to Bill As Tho Secretary of War under direction of the president shall determine provided that in no Caso shall expenditure for any our purpose exceed the sum now by Bill for that purpose. 1 toil aul honed to make this suggestion Etc also j the duty imposed upon the president by itie1 to recommend to Tho con Sidera Tajii of Congress such measures Asho shall j de necessary and expedient and be Causo it is my Earnest desire that the Public works which Are in Progress shall suffer no injury. Congress will also Convene a gain in four months when this whole subject will be open for their consideration. Cd Stan a. Aitt inn. Executive mansion aug. 1,1k82. Retail la Jour Trade.

Our of the Lite Tonaus bulletins the number of farms in Tho United stator in 1880, 1870, 18c0 and 1850, and the rate per cent of in erase Isom 1870 to 1880. Francis a. Walker Lata superintendent of the census in a note Mado Bolero his retirement from office said the table shows no results which especially no Iii of notice except in the Caso of Massachusetts. The figures for this state seem to prove that Tho agricultural Hon Ristics of 1870 were taken very loosely and that the number of l it inti in the state at that Lime was greatly understated. The Groat Inece Isom the nut Uhera farms from 187 1 to 1s80 in Tho Northern Western and l acidic states and the territories is of course satisfactorily explained by the rapid settlement of those regions during the punt decade. Tho great Inere Abo in Tho late slave states especially in Tho Cotton Region is readily accounted for by the subdivision of the Iii a plantations of ten mid Twenty years ago by reason of social and Industrial changes consequent on to War Aud also in the cae of Florida Arkansas and Texas by immigration. The whole number of farms in Tho United states in 1870 was found to be 2,g69,985. In 18 the number was 4,008,907. The absolute increase from 1870 to 1880 was according to Tho census 1,818,922 the rate per cout. Win. 61. It is obvious that if Tho computation was not accurate in 1870, As possibly it was not the value of this comparison is correspondingly reduced. A slight variation in the mucin of collecting statistics in Tho two periods would Nikko a great difference in Tho results. If for of Anile strict inquiry were not Mado As to farms leased and farms owned or Faiuu worked on the share system at the time both enumerations wore made or if the system in accordance with which Tho tvo sets of rot Unic wore tabulated differed Tho would to very Largo. Inasmuch As Gen. Walker has confessed to Tho errors of 1879, generally and specifically perhaps it will not by Wise to attach too much importance to tha comparisons Mado in this table. The reported increase in Tho number of farms in Nev England was As might be expected comparatively slight in Maine it a 8 per cent., in new Hampshire 9 per cent., in Vermont 5 per cent., in Zbura Gen. Walker Points out a probable error in the census of 1870.1 to per cent., in Connecticut 23 per cent., in Rhode Maud 1g per cent. Tha increase in now York was 11 per cont., Aud in Pennsylvania 23 per cont. Tho Southern states Olios a Gratifying increase a Robt of which in undoubtedly genuine in Tho number of farms. In Virginia Liera the negroes Havo become landholders in larger numbers possibly than any Othor soul tacit slate the increase is reported at go per cent., in South Carolina it is 81 per cent., in Georgii 98 per cent., in Mississippi 50 per cent., to. Louisiana 70 per cent. Kentucky and Tiu pcs so inhere Tho same a causes have not operated to the same extent show but 11 per cent and 10 per cent of increase respectively. Illinois Indiana and Ohio report an incr aaa of but 2g, 20 and 2g per cent respectively. There has been Somo breaking up of Urga farms in these states by deaths and other cause and much swamp and Othor waste lands has Heon brought under cultivation. Some of Tho increase i Illinois also has Boon due to tha Ealo of Railroad lands and Tho cultivation of pastures in consequence of the building of railroads. Tho greatest increase has been As was Nifer ural in the far Northwestern states Aud tha territories. The increase in Iowa has been 59 per ceut., in Minnesota 99 per cent., in Dakota 914 per cout., in Oregon 114 per cent., in Washington territory to Tel per cent. The growth in the Mun or of farms has been healthy and non Ianul. There Havo been no signs of a disposition to hold lands in Larga quantities except in California Aud Northern Dakota and in the southwestern states and territories where much of Tho Laud can ouly to used profitably As cattle ranges. It is since will Long con Lauua to be for the a Trust of Tho people at Large that Small farming shall to generally practice in this country and there is happily no present reason that Altara will soon to any serious departure from this custom How to serve iced Tea.
