Washington, May 4.—The President today I sent the following message to the House in reply to Representative Blackbnrn’s reso!u; tion: To the House of Representatives I have given very attentive consideration to a resolu tion of the House of Representatives passed on the 3d day of Apiil, requesting the President of the United States to inform the House of Representatives whether any executive offices, acts or duties, and if any, what have within a specified period been performed at a distance from the seat of the government established by law, etc. 1 have never hesitated and shall not hesitate to communicate to Congress aud to either branch theieof all the information which the Constitution makes it the duty of the President to give, or which my judgment may suggest to me or a request from either House may indicate to me will be useful in the discharge of the appropriate duties confided to them. I fail, however, to find in the Con stitution of tlio United States the authority given to the House of Representatives (one branch ot the Congress in which is vested the legislative power ot the government) to requite of the Executive.au independent branch of the government coordinate with the Senate aud House of Representatives, an account of his discharge of his appropriate aud merely execu tive offices, acts aud duties either as to when, where or how performed. What the House of Representatives may require as a right in its demand upon tho Executive for inlormation is limited to what is necessary for a proper dis charge of its powers of legislation or impeach ment. The inquiry in the resolution of the House as to where executive acts have within the last seven years been peformed, at what distance from any particular spot or for how long a period at any one time, etc., does not necessari ly belong to the province of legislation. It does not profess to bo a3ked for that object. If this information be sought through au inquiry of the President as to his executive acts in view or in aid of the power of impeachment vested iu the House it is asked in derogatiou of an inherit natural right recognized in this country by a constitutional guarantee which protects every citizeD, the President as well as the humblest iu the land, from beiug made a witnesjp against himself. * During the time that I have had the honor to occupy the position of President of this gov ernment, it has|been, and while I continue to occupy that position, it will continue to be my earnest endeavor to recognize aud to respect the several trusts and duties and powers of the co-oruinate branches of tho government, not encroaching upon them, nor allowing encroach ments upon the proper powers of the office which the people of the United States have ccntided to me, but aiming to preserve in their proper relations the several powers and func tions of each of the co-ordinate branches of the government agreably to the Constitution, aud in accordance with the solemn oath that I uav e iant*u, to preserve, protect aau aetena that instrument. In the maintenance of the rights secured by the Constitution to the exec utive brauch of the goveroment I am com pelled to decline any specific or detailed ans wer to the request of the House for information as to “any executive offioes, acts or duties, and if any what have been performed at a distance from the seat of government established by law and for how long a period at any one time, and in what part of the United States.” If, however, the House ot Representatives desires to know whether during the period of upwards of seven years daring which I have held the office of President of the United States I hive been absent from the seat of govern ment, and whether during that period 1 have performed or have neglected to perform the duties of my office, I freely inform the House that from the time of my entrance upon my office I have been in the habit, as were all of my predecessors (with the exception of one who lived only one month after assuming the duties of his office, and one whose continued presence in Washington was necessary from the existence at the time of a powerful rebel lion), of absenting myself at times from the seat of the government, and that during such aosences I did not neglect or forego the obliga tions, or the duties of my office.' but continued to discharge all the executive offices, acts and duties which were required of me as President of the United States. (Applause from the Re publican side ) . I am not aware that a failure occurred in any one instance of my exercising the (unctions and powers of my office, and periorming all necessary executive acts in whatsoever part of the United States at the time I may have been. Fortunately rapidity of travel and of mail communication, and the facility of almost instantaneous correspondence with officials at tbe seat of government which tbe telegraph affords to the President in whatsoever section of the Union he may be enables him in these days him to maintain as constant and almost as quick intercourse with the departments atWash ington as may be maintained while he remains In the capital. The necessity of the performance of executive acts by the President of the Unit ed States exists and is devolved upon him wherever he may be within the United Statas during his term of office. Ry the Constitution of the United States his civil powers are no more limited or capable of limitation as to the place where they shall be exercised than are those which he might be required to discharge in bis capacity as commander-in-chief of tbe army and navy, which latter powers it is evi dent that be might be called upon to exercise, possibly even witbont the limits of the United States. Had the efforts of those recently in rebellion against the government been success ful in driving a late President of the United States from Washington, it is manifest that he must have discharged his functions, both civil and military, elsewhere than in the place nam ed by the law a3 the seat of government. No, act of Congress can limit, suspend or confine this constitutional duty. I am not aware of the existence of any act of Congress which as sumes thus to limit or restrict the exereise of the functions of tbe executive. Were there such acts I should nevertheless re’cognize the the superior authority of the Constitution and should exercise the powers required thereby of the President. The act to which reference is made in the resolution of the House relates to the estab lishment of the se at of the government and the providing of suitable buildings and the removal i thereto of tbe offices attached to tbe govern ment &c. It was not understood at its date, and by General Washington, to confine the President in the discharge of his duties and powers to actual presence at tbe seat of the government. On the 30th of March, 1701, shortly after the passage of the act referred to, General Wash ington issued an executive proclamation having reference to the subject of tbi3 very act, from Georgetown, a place remote from Philadelphia, ferred to directed that “all officers attached to the seat of government should remain.” That none of his successors have entertained the idea that their executive offices could be per formed only at the seat of government, is evinced by the hundreds upon hundreds of such acts performed by my predecessors in an un broken line from Washington to Lincoln, a memoranda of the general nature and charac ter of some of which acts is submitted here with, and no question has been raised a9 to the validity of these acts, or as to the right or pro priety of the executivc|to exercise the powers of his office In any part of the United States. (Signed,) U. S. Gkant, It will be perceived that the message i9 dated Washington, without the usual prefix of “Ex ecutive Mansion.” Accompanying the mes sage ia a memorandum of the absence of Presi dents of the United States from the National Capital during each of the several administra tions and of the public and executive acts per formed during the time of such absences. This memoranda show that nearly all the Presidents have been absent from the seat of government frequently and lor long periods. Washington was absent 181 days during his trem, and performed many important acts while thus away. John Adams was absent 385 days in lour years, Jefferson 796 days, Madison 708 days, John Quincy Adams 222 days, Jacason 502 days, Van Buren 131 days, Tyler 163 days, Polk 37 days, Taylor 31,days, Fillmore 60 days. Pierce 57 days, Buchanan 57 days. THE CHINESE QUESTION. Incendiary Acsien of n Man Francisco Club—Trouble Browing. San Fkancisco, May 4.—The South San Francisco Anti-Coolie Club and the Young Men’s Universal Reform Society have passed resolutions endorsing the destruction of the Chinese quarters in Antioch, and advocating a similar course in this city unless the Federal government take immediate steps to abate Cui nese immigration. Highly incendiary speeches were made and letters read from societies in the interior seeking the co-operation of the San Francisco Coolie organizations. The Sergeant at-Arms of the Young Men’s Universal Reform Society announced that he had received a tele gram from New York, saying that 2600 stand of arms could be delivered here at ten days’ notice. While such talk and action is universally rep robated by the great mass of thinking people in this city, there can be no doubt that it meets the approval of a large and dangerous class in the community, and that in the event of no ac tion being taken in the matter by the general government there is grave reason to fear serious disturbances here at no disiant day. Before the Senate Chinese commission of Sacramento yesterday, Lem Schaum, a Christ ianized Chinese, testified that it practically was impossible to convert a grown Chinaman to Ohistianity. though sometimes it is successful in case of a boy. The condition of the women here is horrible. They are bought and sold like cattle, abused by their masters, tortured and often killed for attempting to escape. The presence of the Chinese in this country is dis astrous to both the whites and Chinese The Chinese here of the better class desire immi gration stopped, and the whole thing can be JoDe in a friendly way. Ml. Louis Whiskey Cases St. Louis, May 4.—In the United States dis rict court this morning a complete consolida ion of all the indictments and counts in the iu lictments standing against distillers, rectifiers, raugers, and store keepers was effected with he consent of all the parties concerned, but he government counsel reserved its motion for enteuces until a future day. A number of [augers and store-keepers were notified how iver, to appear in Court to-morrow and it is lot improbable they may receive their sentence. WASHINGTON. _ Davenport unii Hi* Voucher*. Washington, May 4.—Davenport to day pn duceil more vouchers, explained them aud said he personally Uuew every person who had signed them, and that every voucher covered an actual expenditure of money liy him, lie stated that the result ol the expenditures so far prevented fraudulent voting in New York so as to justify the indorsement given byjtbe President. Mr. Caulfield objected to such testimony, but the committee, by a vote of four to three, decided such information was essential. Dav enport said the copyrighted books were paid for by himrelf. The Mary Merritt Case Closed. Messrs, Pel and and Trice testified today that Bristow's connection with the Mary Merritt case was only of friendship. This closed the investigation. Tbc Emma Mine luvestigatioa Gen. Schenek testified today that the state ment by Johnson yesterday that Schenek was frequently seen in the office of brokers of the | Emnja mine stock was entirely false, aud that be never was in the office of any broker in London in his life and when lie went to the city he never used his own carriage but hired a cab. He said JohDson’s statement was an un mitigated falsehood in its length, breadth and inference. Park also testified that the testi mony of Lyon yesterday relative to bin alleged conversation with Fisher aud Lyon about hav ing articles printed and circulated in a morning paper were all false. After couriderable testimony from Parks and Lyon, as to the unreliability of each other’s statements, the examination was declared con cluded. Various Matters. Twelve ladies from the Bureau of engraving waited upon the House committee on appro priations today aDd asked compensation for the time they wera out of employment in March aud April. The committee took no action but the conversation developed an ad verse feeliog towards granting the application. The opinion strengthens that the Senate sit ting as a court of impeachment will sustain the plea of Belknap that they have no jurisdiction to try him. Internal revenue receipts today $730,732; customs $379,114. The amount of silver coin actually paid out at the Treasury aud sub-treasuries from the 19th of April to the 3d of May inclusive was $1,934,200. Naval Appropriation Bill. New York, May 4.—It is stated that the naval appropriation bill materially reduces the force of seamen and marines, and totally sus pends work in the navy yards at Portsmouth, Boston and Washington. The Blaine Investigation to Begin Next Week. The Telegram’s specials from Washington state that Mr. Huntou of the sub-committee to investigate Blaine, says the inquiry will be be gun next week and he is determined to get at the bottom facts. The Venezuela Claims. The foreign affairs committee havo agreed on a resolution requesting Secretary Fish to suspend the first payment of the Venezuela claims which he had announced for Voh 1Kfh inst., until they have examined into the alleged frauds perpetrated in connection with the claims. It is pwbable that Ilia bill will be mcdided to this extent. BELKNAP’S IMPEACHMENT. The Question of Jurisdiction Under Dis cuasion. Washington, May 4.—The impeachment trial was resumed this morning. Mr. Carpen ter said if the court was to adjourn next week as proposed it would be in the middle of the argument, and he had no doubt that it wonld be more convenient to both sides to have the argument postponed until the reassembling of the Senate. Manager Lord said the managers would pre fer to have a consecutive hearing. If the argu ment was to be broken by an adjournment the managers wonld prefer to have the argument postponed until the 15th. After discussion the Senate refused to post pone hearing arguments, yeas 22, nays 38. Mr. Blair, of the counsel for the respondent, then opened an argument on the question of jurisdiction and quoted at length from the Blount case in support of his views. He de nied the power of the Senate to try on articles of impeachment a private citizen and quoted from various English works on the subject of impeachment. Mr. Blair contended that sev eral U. S. Judges had resigned and impeach ments against them had been stopped. Blair continued his argument till 2 35 when the Senate took a recess for fifteen minutes. On reassembling Manager Lord contended that as issue had been joined it was too late to raise the question of jurisdiction. There was some dispute as to who should follow Mr. Lord whether a manager or Mr. Carpenter, and af ter some discussion, the Senate as a court of impeachment adjourned till 12.30 tomorrow. Fortj -Fourth Congress—First Session SENATE. Washington, May 4. A concurrent resolution to adjourn from Sat urday next till Monday the 15th inst., to attend the opening of the Centennial, was considered and laid over. Mr. Conkling presented a petition which he said came from all classes of people in 22 states and territories, that the government endeavor to have Condon, the Irish patriot, released from I prison. Referred. On motion of Mr. Anthony 800 copies of the reports on labor in Europe and America were ordered printed. The rest of the session was occupied with im peachment business. HOUSE. The House went into committee of the whole on the Post Office bill, and speeches were made on miscellaneous subjects. The committee was addressed by Mr. Vance of North Carolina, in favor of his bill and ptop osition to pay the contractors for carrying mails in the Southern states prior to April, 1861. He made a patriotic appeal for the burying of ail sectional animosities and bitter recollections caused by the war, and proclaimed the loyalty, patriotism and good feeling of the South. Mr. Kelley of Pennsylvania, testified to that same good feeling, and related his experience in the South last year. Mr. Anderson of Illinois, addressed the com mittee on the financial question. Mr. Waldron of Michigan, a member of the Appropriation Committee, criticised the bill and undertook to demonstrate that it would not afford the means to carry on the work of the department Mr. Cannon of Illinois, spoke similarly, and Messrs. Dunnell of Minnesota, and Reagan of Texas, opposed the reductions provided for by the bill and the committee rose. Nine thousand dollars were appropriated by the House to pay the expenses of the commit tee to investigate the Federal offices of Louisi ana. A resolution that the two Houses accept the invitation to attend the opening ceremonies of the International Exhibition and adjourn from the 9th to the 12th inst., was passed. Mr. Blaine of Maine, offered a resolution di recting the Committee on Ways and Means to provide for the relief the country from the threatened scarcity of fractional currency. Mr. Randall of Pennsylvania, suggested that that subject was before the Committee on Bank ing and Currency, but after a somewhat jocose discussion the resolution was adopted. Mr. Payne then asked leave to report his bill allowing the issue of silver coin in exchange for greenbacks, but Kelley objected. , The message of the President declining to furnish the House with information as to his various absences from Washington was received with cold disdain oa the Democratic side, and with evident enjoyment on the Republican side. At the conclusion of the reading Mr. Ran- 1 dall moved it be referred to the Judiciary Com- j mittee and printed. It was so ordered. Mr. MacDougall of New York, then offered < a resolution instructing the select committee i for investigation of the Federal offices in Louis- i iana to make a full and complete investigation < of t.hft nirnnmatanoofi nitanrlirwr *T»a noaeoDim. tion of M. H. Twitchell and David King, on Bed River, La., particularly as to whether the cause was or was not of a political character. Mr. Randall of Pennsylvania—I hope no one will object to the resolution. Mr. Beebe of New York, desired to have an investigation also into the killing of two ne groes and wounding of eight others at the late election at Indianapolis. j Mr. Townsend of New York, remarked amidst much uproar that the Republicans carried the election and the Democrats killed the niggers. Mr. MacDougall declined to yield for Beebe’s amendment. r Mr. Levy of Louisiana, in behalf of the peo- c pie of that state invited a thorough investiga- 1 tion into the killing at Red River. t Mr. MacDougall’s resolution was adopted 1 and the House at 5.30 adjourned. .« _ 'J ii Food Scarec at the Black Hills. 3 Omaha, May 4.—-A recent arrival from Cus- £ ter City says there is a great scarcity of food n throughout the Black Hills.

Kiddle, whose daughter was the wife of the late James Wolcott Knowlton, whom Mr. Blaine in his statement a few days since mentioned as re futed responsible for the Kansas Pacific story wrote a letter to Mr. Blaine charging him with aspiring Knowiton’s memory and annoanciug his intention to vindicate it. The following is published to-day. Washington, May 3.—Hon. A. 0. Biddle, Dear Sir,—1 am totally surprised by the tone of your note touching Mr. KnowltoD. 1 was es pecially careful to make no reference to him that in my judgment could offend the most sensitive feeling. You cannot hut be aware that Mr. Knowlton’s name has been used for some years past and with vindictive force and frequency this winter to injure me. Tes timony reported as coming from him, but which you know he never gave, has beeu car ried and quoted in all directions, and I have to choose between disproving it and tacitly ad mitting it with all its damaging implications, but no one save yourself can see in iny refer ence to Mr. Knowlton the slightest disrespect to his memory. On the con trary it relieves him from the au thorship of an unfounded calumny. If, how ever, you judge it to be wise or prudent or ex pedient to seek a personal controversy with me over Mr. Knowlton’s grave I shall greatly regret it, and I think in the end you will re gret it still more. Nor can I believe that on cool reflection you will permit yourself to do anything so uncalled for and in all respects so extraordinary. Very respectfully, James G. Blaine, Crimes and Casualties.

The pink has left her cheeks and too cherry her lips. The once spark ling, dancing eyes art, now dull and expressionless. The once warm, dimpled hands are now thin and cold. Her beauty has fled. What has wrought this wonderful change? What Is that which Is lurking beneath the surface of that once lovely form? Does she realize her terrible condition ? I sshe aware of the woful appearance she makes? Woman, from her very nature, is subject to a catalogue of diseases from which man is entirely exempt. .,auy of these maladies are induced by her own carelessness, or through ignorance of the laws of her being, Again, many Female Diseases, if properly treated, might be arrested in their course, and thereby prove of short duration They should not be left to an inex perienced physician who does not understand their nature, and is, therefore, incompetent to treat them. The importance of attending to Female Diseases in their earliest stages cannot be too strongly urged. For if neglected, they frequently lead to Consump tion. Chronic Debility, and oftentimes to Insanity. In all classes ot Female Diseases, Dr. Pierce’s Fav orite Prescription ft without a rival. No medicene has ever surpassed it. “In the People’s Common Sense Medical Adviser.” of which R. V. Pierce, M. D., of Buffalo, N. Y.. is the author and publisher, is an extended treatise on Woman and deb Diseas es. Under this head, the various affections to which woman Is Incident are carefully portrayed, and a restorative course of treatment suggested. Every woman, as she values her life and health, should possess a copy of this valuable book. If she be dis eased, this “Adviser” will show her how she may be restored to health, and also direct her how she may ward off many maladies to which she is constantly being exposed.' Let every suffering woman heeu this timely advice and see herself as others Isee her. Price of Adviser, $1.50 (post-paid) to any address. oc29 my5eod&wlw SPECIAL NOTICES.
