nial year of our national existence as
free and independent people, it affords
me great pleasure to recur to the advance

of the Colonies one hundred years ago
We were then a people numbering only
three millions ; now we number more than

most exclusively to the tillage of the soil ;
now manufactures absorb much of th

The President earnestly recommends that
a constitutional amendment be submitted
to the legislatures nuking it the duty o
each Stale to establish and forever main
tain free public schools adequate to the
education of children in rudimentary
branches within their respective limits
irrespective of sex, c dor, bu t h, place or
religion, forbidding the teaching in said
schools of religious, atlheistic or pagan
tenets and prohibiting the granting of any
school funds or school taxes or any part
thereof, cither by legislative, mauicipal or
other authorities for the benefit or in
aid, directly or indiiectly of any re
ligious sect or denomination, or in aid,
or for the bent fit of any other object of
any nature or kind whatever. He alludes
io the importance of correcting the evil of
at amounts of untaxed church property,
and estimates that by 1S90, if unchecked,
this property will reach n sum exceeding
three thousand million dollar, lie would
suggest the taxation of all property
equally, excepting only the last resting
lilace of the dead.
Relations with most foreign powers
continued on a patisfactory aud friendly
footing. The I'i evident is happy to an
nounced the passage of an act by the
general consent of Portugal, abolishing
ilarery in the colonics.
The past year has furnished no evidence
of an approaching termination of the ruin
ous conflict which has been raging for
even years in Cuba. The same disre
gard of the laws of civilized warfare and
tbe just demand of humanity which have
heretofore called forth expressions of con
demnation jruin the nations of Christen
dom have continued to blacken the sad
scene. Desolation, ruin and pillage are
pervading the rich fields of the one of the
most fertile and productive regions of the
earth, and the incendiaries torch, firing
plantations and valuable factories and
buildings, is the agent marking the alter
nate advance and retreat of the contend
ing parlies. The President narrates dam
age to the interests of all commercial na
tions, especially to thoso of tho United
Slates and the security of property own
ed by the citizens of the United States
in Cuba. lie had hoped Spain could
be enabled to establish pcaco in her
colony. Because ol this bope and from
an extreme reluctance to interfere in the
affairs of another and a friendly nation, lie
bai patiently and anxiously awaited the
progress of events. The armed bands of
cither sido now occupy the ground as in
The President makes a long argument
nd concludes : "A recognition of the
independence of Cuba being in my opin
on impracticable and indefensible, the
question which next presents itself, is
that of the recognition ol brilligerent rights
n parties to the contest." After further
wgument. the Preeideut concludes: "The
"cognition of independence or of belliger-
fuey Icing thus iu my judgement equally
DAQangible, it remains to consider what
course shall be adopted. Should tbe con
b'ci not soon be brought to an end by

Discussing specie resumption, the Pres-
dent says : "Too much stress cannot be
laid upon this question, and J hope Con

day practicable to insure consummation
of the act of the last Congress at its last
session, to bring about specie resumption
on and after the first day of Junuarv.
1879. at farthest. It would be a great
blessing if this could be consnmmiated
at even an earlier day. Nothing seems
to me more certain than that a full, healthy
and permanent reaction cannot take place
in favor of the industries and financial
welfare of the country until we return to
a measure of values recognized through
out the civilised world. While we use a
currency not equivalent to this standard,
the world's recognised standard of spe
cie becomes a commodity like products of
the soil, the surplus seeking a market
wherever there is a demand for it. Un
der onr present system, we should want
noue nor would we have any were it not
that eustoms dues are paid in coin, and be
cause of pledges to pay the interest on the
public debt in coin. The yield of the
precious metals would flow out for tbe
purchase of foreign productions and leave
the United States hewers of wood
and drawers of water, because of wiser
legislation on the subject of finance by the
nations with whom we have dealings. I
am not prepared lo say that I can suggest
the best legislation to secure the end I
most heartly recommend. L will be
a source of great satisfaction to me to be
able to approve any measure of Congress
looking effectually towara securing the
resumption. Unlimited inflation would
probably bring about specio payments
more speedily ;han any legislation look
ing to redemption of legal tenders in coin,
but it would be at the expense of
honor. Tbe hgal tenders would have no
value beyond set ling the present liabili
ties, or properly speaking, repudiating
th in. They would bring nothing after
all other debts were settled. These arc
a few measures which seem to m impor
tant in this connection, and which I com
mend to your earnest consideration. A
repeal of so much of tho legal lender act as
makes these noies leceivablu f-r the debts
contracted after a certain date to be fK-d
in the act itself ; say not later than the
first of January 1876. A hearty reaction
would wet ia at once and with it, a desire
to make the currency equal to what it
purports to be.
Tho President elaborates the good
effects which would follow this sugges
tion. Second, that the Secretary of
Treasury be authorised to redeem, sa v .
not to exceed two million dollars monthly
of legal tender notes by issuing in their
stead a long bond bearing three sixty nve
inndredths per cent of denominations
rat-ging from fifty to a thousand dollars
each ; third, that additional power be
"As this will be the last message I
shall have the honor of submitting io
Congress before my successor is chosen,
I will repeat or recapitulate the questions
which 1 deem of vital importance and
which may be legislated upon and settled
at this session : First, that tbe States
shall be required to afford the opportuni
ty of a good common school education
to every child within their limits. Second,
no sectarian tenets shall ever be taught
in any school supported in whole or in
part by the State or Nation or proceeds
of any tax levied upon any community ;
make education compulsory so far as to
deprive all persons who cannot read and
write from becoming voters after the year
1S90, disfranchising none, however, on
grounds of illiteracy who may be voters
at the time this amendment takes effect :
Third, Declare church and Si ate forever
separate and distinct, but each free within
their proper spheres, and that ail church
property shall bear its owu proprotion of
taxation : Fowth, drive out licensed im
morality such as polygamy and the im
portation of women for illigitimate pur
poses. I recur again to the Centennial year.
It would seem as though now, as we are
about to begin tbe second century of our
national existence, would be a most fitting
time for those reforms. Fifth, enact such
laws as will secure a speedy return to a
sound currency such as will command the
respect of the world. Believing that
these views will command themselves
to the great majority of the right thinking
and patriotic citizens of the United States.
I submit the rest to Congress.

The Moqui Indians.
A portion of the Hayden exploring ex
pedition penetrated that part of Arizona
occupied by tbe "Moqui Indians," a tribe
differing so widely in their habits and
customs from the ordinary tribes of North
American Indians, as to lead to the sup
position that they spring from a distinct
race. They are gentle, peace-loving, and
unlike the wilder tribes, do not follow the
chase, but in a rnde way cultivate the
soil, from which they gain a scanty sup
ply of corn and some of tbe commoner
Cattle, eheep and goats, which they
raised in considerable numbers, find peren
nial pasturage in the valleys and on the
slopes leading up to the mesas upon which
their towns are bnilt. Their habitations,
which are built of stone, bear evidence
of having been erected at a period ante,
dating the discovery of this continent, and
are still substantial edifices, that give
promise of remaining after the remnant of
the tribe shall have passed a? ay.
These houses ate frequently four sto
ries high, each successive story receding
like terraces ou a hillside, and am io
connected as to make it uncertain where
one house ends or the other begiue. The
architecture -of these buildings bars a
striking similarity to that of the ruins of
ancient buildings fouud in many parts of
Arizona, and which are not unfrequenlly
met along the course of the Colorado and
San Juan rivers. The men of the Moqui
tribe, unlike the average Indian, preform
field labor, and gather and garner their
crops with a frugality which may be the
outgrowth of necessity, but which seems
to be the effect of a remote, but not to bo
underrated civilization, which their tradi

Thb Orphan Asylum Rkport or
the Superintendent Mills. The re
port of this gentleman, submitted last
evening to the masonic grand lodge, in
regard to the present statue of the orphan
asylums at Oxford and Man Hill, is very
interesting, and reflects credit upon the
seal and energy displsyed by that gen
tleman in his labors in so good a cause.
Regret is felt in not being able to give
the report in full. Contributions to the
Oxford asylum from Dee 1, 1874, to Nov.
30, 1875, amounted to S13.095.98. Dis
bursements for same period, 812,540.37,
leaving on hand a balance of S551.61.
These figures inelude the receipts and
disbursements for Mars Hill until Sept.
1, when the books of that institution were
opened. Tbe number of orphans reported
as present at Oxford last year was 132 ;
admitted since that report 50, making
182 ; discharged 57, died 2, runaway 3
expelled 3, leaving 105 inmates at pre
sent. The total contribution in cash from
September 1, to November 30, for Mars
Hill asylum were $353.21. One mule
was sold for $100 and $1 10 received from
the Oxford asylum, making the total re
ceipt 8553,34. The disbursements during
this time amount to $548,20, leaving on
hand $5,13. The contributions in kiud
have not been so liberal as might have
been expected in a country blessed with
abundant crops, but some few individuals
have made frequent and liberal donations.
Repairs on the main building aud the
erection of other buildings, the purchase
of furniture, &c, havo caused the expen
ses to be rather heavy, but these improve
ments are of a permanent character. The
number of orphans admitted to this asy
lum has been 35, expelled 1, runaway 2,
discharged 3, leaving now present 29 of
them. 10 were transferred from Oxford,
some to assist iu entertainments and olh
ers for their health. The continuance of
this institution is recommended by the
superiutendaut for various reasons, aud

c tied to to give a more hearty support
