$^We shall print several thousand sur-
plus copies of the Congressional Globe
and Appendix, for the purpose of supply-
ing those who may subscribe within a
reasonable time—say by the middle of
January—with the back numbers. The
Congressional Globe will contain a con-
densed report of the proceedings in both
Houses of Ccfngress during the session.
The appendix will contain the reports of
the several heads of departments accom-
panying the President's message, and all
the long speeches made by the members
of Congress, and written out by them-
selves. The price to subscribers is $1 for
the Congressional Globe, and $1 for the
Appendix, during the session. We furnish
complete indexes to both. We suppose
that the business of the present session
will afford matter for 25 or 30 numbers of
the Congressional Globe, and an equal
number of the Appendix.
