WASHINGTON. Bills Signed by tbe President. Message Concerning the Army Bill. BANK DEFALCATIONS. ■■PUBLICAN CAUCUS. Washutoton, Maroh 4. The Capitol is densely thronged to-day. All important appropriation bills have been Jpass ed. Many bills nave been signed by the Presi dent this morning, including the tax hill. The President has approved the bankrupt bill, also the bill to make valid tbe proclamation ot the President, thus exempting military officers and soldiers from the operations of courts. All important appropriation bills and all other bills presented to the President, includ ing the wool tariff bill, have been approved by him. The Senate has confirmed Thomas Russell, Collector of Customs at Boston. The Speaker’s table was cleared of business by the taking up and passing of the bill au thorizing George V. Fox, and the officers ol the Miantonomah and Augusta to accept pres ents tendered them by the Emperor of Rus sia, and the Senate joint resolution thanking the Chamber of Senators and Deputies of Brazil, for their resolutions of sorrow and sym pathy for the death of President Lincoln. The following is the message of the Presi dent, concerning the Army bill: To the Botue of Representatives: The act entitled “an act making appropria tions for the support of the army for the year ending June 30,1868, and fur other purposes,” contains provisions to which I must call atten tion. These provisions are coutaine 1 in the 2d section, which, in certain cases virtually deprives the President ol his Constitutional function as Commander-in-Chlet of the army; and in the 6th section which denies to the States of the Union their Constitutional right to protect themselves in any emergency by means of their own militia. These provisions are out of place iu an appropriation act. I am compelled to defeat the appropriations if I withhold my signature from the bill. Pressed by these circumstances I feel constrained to return the bill with my signature, but, to ac company it with my protest against the sec tions which I have indicated. I .-Jlgueuj ANDREW JOHNSON. It is not probable that the President will send any formal message to Congress, se short a time having elapsed since that of the first of December. Certainly, there will be no mes sage of extended length. The bill which passed the House this morn ing, appropriating $50,000 additional for the Paris Exposition, was not engrossed in time to be presented to the President for his signature. The Commissioner of Indian Affilirs to-day concluded treaties with the Cherokee and Shawnee tribes of Indians. Treaties have now been made with all the Kansas Indians, providing for their removal. No nomination for the naval offioer of New York was sent in in betore the adjournment of the 39th Congress. The First National Bank of Newton, Mass., and Hudson, New York, have been placed in change of the Agents of the Comptroller of the Currency, for investigation. It Is expect ed that the First National Bank of Hudson, will pay all its losses and go on. The Mechan ics' National Bank of Baltimore, will not sus pend business. The directors and stockhold ers are wealthy and will pay up the amount ot the defalcation. The defalcation in this bank commenced twenty years ago, but had been skillfully covered up and concealed. It was brought to light by an official examina tion made by an Agent of the Comptroller of the Currency. Mr. Hurlburt acts promptly and will carry out the law to the extent ot his powers under the law. The President of the Senate laid before that body a communication from the Secretary of the Treasury, showing that the total amount received from various sources from property enumerated under a general head of captured and abandoned property was $34,000,000, of which amount nearly $25,000 remain as net proceedr. Upon due proof of any unlawful taxing of property by agent of Treasury De partment, the fact being shown by satisfactory affidavits, reports of agents, or by other ade quate written evidence, the agents holding such property have been ordered to restore the same to the owners, or the proceeds, if not ac tually turned into the Treasury here. Great interest was taken in the Republican caucus to-night, to nominate the remaining officers of the House subordinates under the late officers, and expectants under the new candidates thronged the lobbies, while curios ity attracted many. For Sergeant-at-arms Mr. Dawes nominated N. G. Ordway, and he was unanimously elected. The contest for Doorkeeper was the greatest. The nominees were Gen. Lippincott, of Illinois, and Captain Goodwin, the present incumbent. Gen. Lip pincott was nominated by seven majority.— Win. S. King was nominated for Postmaster. Pablic Meeting on the Condition of the Country. Atlanta. Ga., March 4. A public meeting of onr citizens to consider the condition of our country was largely at tended. Resolutions approving the terms of Mr. Sherman’s bill and the course of Governor Brown were rejected. The meeting then divid ed, the minority approving Mr. gherman’s bill withdrawing, and will hold a meeting to-night. The majority organized a new meeting, and passed resolutions counselling a quiet submis sion to the bill, bnt characterizing it as harsh and unjust; expressing approval of the noble course of President Johnson asserting that the honor and manhood of the Southern pec ple were left; and announcing as the sense of the meeting that the freedom of the people must not be bartered away for the provisions of Mr. Sherman’B bill. A resolution was adopted that the Governors ot Southern States take steps to test the constitutionality of the bill in the Supreme Court of the United States. MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. Lewiston. Lewiston, March 4. At the election in this city to-dav, George H. Pillsbury (Republican) was elected Mayor by a very large majority over A. Wakefield (Demo crat. The Republicans carried every ward. Gardiner. Gardiner, Mareh 4. George W. Wilcox (Republican) was elected Mayor of this city to-day by a unanimous vote. Bath. Bath, March 3. The municipal election to-day resulted in the election of Hon. Israel Putnam (Republican) by 35 majority. The Financial Troubles in Boston. Boston, March 4. The Jouraal of this evening says: “ There is a general feeling of distrust on the street so far as regards the transactions of brokers and bankers, the recent failures having brought to light such gross irregularities thate ven well es tablished and high toned houses suffer from the suspicion which is naturally created. The First National Bank at Newton appears to have been completely cleaned out, and many oases of individual suffering are related. It is probable that one or two other banks besides those enumerated have been subjected to loss, and twenty thousand dollars was taken out of one individual whose friendship made him an easy dupe. We are happy to hear that there is every prospect that the whole affair will be made the subject of legal investigation. EUROPE. NEW* HI THE CABLE Berlin, March 2, Evening.

As I have in my proceeding letters so fully describ ed the symptoms and pathology of Catarrh, and the various diseases of the air passages, and painted ont their important relation to consumption, and other diseases of the chest. I shall in the present instance, content myself by fhmishing the following strong proofs of their curability. To show the permanency of cures effected by In halation, I will here refer to persons now living in the enjoyment of good health, whose oases were pro nounced hopeless and incurable some years since, and wore cured by Dr. Morse’s Remedies, mostly through the medium of Inhalation. Hundreds of other similar oases might be mentioned. CONSUMPTION. Mrs. Sophia A. Fitts, formerly of Bath, now a res ident of Oak Hill, Brunswick, of this State, was re duced to a very low state by sickness in 1862. It was soon manifest that her lungs were laboring under tu berculous ulceration, which was fast wasting her life away. Her physician thought the structure of her left lung was almost destroyed. Her case was considered hopeless and incurable by all of her friends and phy sician. She was placed under the care of Dr. Morse of Portland, by whom a perfect cure was effected, mostly through the medium of Inhalation. Mrs. F. has enjoyed better health since than ever before. ASTHMA. Mrs. Dorcas Lawrence of Falmouth, this State, was in a feeble state of health for a long time, caused by Asthma, or Phthlslo, difficulty of breath ing, and other alarming symptoms, which caused much Buffering, which rendered her cose hopeless fat the minds of her friends. She was restored to a per fect state of health by the use of Dr. Morse’s Reme dies, mostly through the medium of Inhalation. PNEUMONICA. Mrs. Samuel Hill of West Buxton, in this State, was severely troubled with Pneumonic*, a disease affecting the lungs, their membrane or motive power, characterized by irregular, impeded or painihl re spiration. After long suffering, a council oi three physicians was called. After consultation, they gave no en couragement of a cure. She was placed under the care ef Dr. Morse of Portland, and in a few months restored to perfect health, mostly through the medi um of Inhalation. HEMORRHAGE. Bev. William Leavitt, brother of Mrs. Hill, haring heard of his sister’s recovery, applied to Dr. Morse. His disease was Hemorrhage of the Lungs, which caused great debility. He was obliged to relinquish preaching, and entertained doubts about ever being able to resume his vocation. He placed himself un der the care of Dr. Morse, and in a few month* was restored to health through the medium of Inhala tion, and is at present preaching to the people oi West Buxton. HEMORRHAGE. Mr. Isaac L. Barnes, of Brunswick, of this State, was troubled with Hemorrhage of the Lungs, and oth erwise affected, in 1882, had lost over thirty pounds oi flesh, was troubled with palpitation of the heart, hied one pint a day for six days in succession, reduced very weak. Mr. Barnes was fully restored to health by the use ef Dr, Morse’s Inhaling Remedies. Still enjoys good health. HEMORRHAGE. Rev. Horace, Norton, of Meadvllle, Pa., after being reduced to a very low state of health, by Hemorrhage from the Lungs, wa* so feeble that he could not walk five rods without assistance. Came to Portland, placed himself under the care of Dr. Morse. He grad ually improved until he was fully restored to health. HU weight increased from 121 pounds to ICS pounds. ASTHMA. Mr. James A. Page, of Bloomfield, (afterwards re moved to Aroostook) was severely troubled with Asth ma from a child, often so badly that he could not per form any labor for months together. It was a com mon thing for him to be obliged to sit up all night, with much difficulty of breathing. Mr. Page was radically cured through the medium of Inhalation, obtained of Dr. Morse. CATARRH, BRONCHITIS, fee. air. Isaac Robinson, of East Vassalboro', was se verely troubled with pulmonary disease for five years, with Chronic Catarrh, Bronchitis, severe hoarseness; could not speak above a whisper tor several months, during wliich time he was confined to his room; a large abscess formed on one lung, which broke and was

discharged t hrough the tubes out of the mouth. His physician thought his case hopeless. He was placed under the care of Dr. Morse, and gradually improved by the uso of the Inhaling Remedies, until he was lUlly restored to health. CHBONIC CATARRH. Mr. Silas W. Berry, ot WaterviUe, this State, was troubled with Chronic Catarrh and pulmonary di ease, which was the cause of frequent spells of As phyxia, or suspended animation. He had loot five sisters who died with consumption, and was much alarmed about himself. Mr. Berry was fully restored to health by the use of Br. Morse’s Inhaling Reme dies. AN IMPORTANT CURE. Mrs. Caroline Atkinson, of Cornish, of this State, a widow whose husband gave his life to his country in our recent civil war, and daughter of Mr. Samuel Knight, of the same town, was seriously attacked by a disease of the Lungs, she had fastened upon her dangerous symptoms, by which she was prostrated very low, aud unable to oo removed for several days, aud was given up to die. Other organs were sorious ly affected, and their natural secretions suppressed. In this condition she placed herself under the care ot Dr. Morse. Through the medium of his Inhaling Remedies she was fully restored to health, and is now a hale and hearty woman. Dr.Mor.se has the names of more lhan two thou sand persons on his books, who have been cured ot Catarrh in its various forms, and It is sate to soy that all the above named cases were caused by Catarrh, or proceeded from that complaint. Persons at a distanoe can be treated by letter. Tour obedient servant, CHARLES HORSE, Physician for Diseases of the Throat aud Lungs, No. 6 Decring Street, Portland, Me.
