dike)) , 'eller my induction into office,• tol
oonsmunicato with you on the subject of the
publin,debt, and to exhibit the actual linen
dial:condition of the Commonwealth at that
petted:. After the neecssaryeitamination,'
however, I discovered ' I could not do so
with that precise accuracy which should
characterize the statement of, an official
communication. There .are outstanding
debts on the:public works,'unpaid claims,
and balances us appropriations fodest year,
the amount' of which
not bo ascer
tained in time for this purpose: I urn'
therefore, I - regret ,to' say; compelled to
forego the performance of this duty, until
. meeting of , the: next ; Legislature. .1
cannot, : however, refrain from expressing
tho.views. I entorttiln, ,and the anxiety I I
feel Oa fow,subjects connected with the
; financial and other afiliire of the State.. .
;,,Thore is. now duo and unpaid two mil
lions,,four, hundred and ..ninety-one thous
and two.hundred anit.fifty-five dollars of
.bonde : of the
.ConamonWealth, bearing an
t iatet*s3.4 ; of.six per cent., and a balance of
near one hundred thousand dollars due to
domestic creditors, bearing alike rate of
interest, besides one million three hundred
,and.. inintty thousand dollars, at five per
;cent; :over two millions will fall due in
1853, and about three millions in 1854.
• I respectfully suggest to the Legislature
.the propriety' of making provision for the
'cancellation of these matured bonds, and
.such us may fall duo during the coming
year, by authorizing the State Treasurer
to negotiate loans for that ptirpose, and is
sue the bonds of the Commonwealth, re
imbursable at the expiration of ten or fif
teen years, at a rate of interel notexceed
ing five per cent., with interest certificates
attached, or in the usual form as may be
deemed,. proper. The present reduced
rates of interest in Europe, rind the abun
dance of money in the principal cities of
.this country afford ample assuranew that
.sueh loans 'can be negotiated at a rite of
interest much' below that which the State
, is, now bound to pay 'for these bonds. I
, arrifully satisfied by information which has
reached me through private as well as pub
lic•tiources, that tho bonds of the State ex
empted froin taxation could be negotiated
'at.such rate of interest as to make a very
,desirablO' saving to the Treasury. It is
not so much the present rate of tax on the
bonds that would injure the value of new
-..ones. ria.the . sensitive : apprehensions en
- ertained by capitalists, that such rate of
taxation, might at some 'future time, be in
creased. Besides these inducements to
• cancel the the matured bonds, wo should
. not ;knot that it is not befitting a great
and prosperous State like Pennsylvania,to
have a matured and unpaid debt resting
upon her, - Such a state of affairs is not
• consistent with her dignity and her pride,
. andis well calculated to have an injurious
::effect upon her credit. Her ability to nay
: cannot be doubted, and the fidelity with
. which her people have ever responded to
-.civet) , .reasonable . demand to sustain her
dredit,lias excited unlimited confidence in
.•be,r , integrity amongst the capitalists of this
. country and Europe. I therefore, most
-respectfully submit this subject to your
~; .The receipts into the Treasury for the
'year 1851, deducting the temporary loan
of 898,209, amounted to 84,472,393 03,
and the expenditures for the same year to
: 0 84,780,667 53, or. $308,363 40 more
- than the whole receipts. In this expendi
tura:is-Included 8185,136 91 which was
paid to tho Comintsst.ra of the Sinkin g
Fund, and cannot therefore, ,bo property
regarded as an expenditure, as it was used'
• to cancel a like amount of the funded debt,
• :leaving an. actual . balance against the
Treasury of 9223,225 49.
.•, •After full consultation with the financial
officers of the State, and a careful exami
nation of the data which they have kindly
placed witgin rify reach, I have arrived at
the conclusion, that the receipts and ex
- .penditures for the current year may bees
timeted as follows to wit:—Receipts 84,-
325,000 expenditures 84,027,000, leaving
a balance of receipts over expenditures of
8298,000 -including in this expenditure an
estimated payment to the Commissioners
-.of,the Sinking Fund of $220,000. But it
. should be observed, that in the expendi
,: tunes of last year, their° is included the
sum of $442,196 applied to the North
':Branch canal, and 830,000. for the inclin
,-• foci planes on • the • Portage road and the
lif Western reservoir, making in all $472,106

Bloody Affair in Kentucky.
Several Persons Killed.—The Louis
ville Courier gives an account of a bloody
affray which occurcd near Lancaster Ky..
on the 14th inst., between Russell, Isaiah
and Frederick Hill, and two or three of
their sons,on one side,and n party who had
fortified themselves in a tobacco house on
the other. Nothing is said as to the origin
of the affray, except that as the Hills arriv
ed opposite the house, they where fired
on, and Russell Hill killed. The account
in the Courier then goes on to say :
"The Hills then charged upon the house
and Isaiah Hill was killed just as he was
getting over the fence. The door of the
house was forced by the remaining Hills,
and the. fight. continued with short arms
and bowie knives. John Sellers was shot
by a son of Isaiah Hill, (twelve or fourteen
years of age,) and fell and expired after
having received five other shots through
the head. Wm. Crisman was shot by the
same boy, when in the act of stabbing
Frederick Hill with a bowie knife. Cris
man died, having on his body one pistol
shot and fifty-three %founds inflicted with
a knife. A man by the name of Alverson
and another by the name of Samuel Sel
lers, (of the house - party) were slightly
' wounded. Two of the boys (Hills) were
wounded with rifle shots, and one of them
n mere boy, lies in a critical condition.

T/KEN, 11 TLIP IR MOIIIER.—On Saturday

Asylums. A respectable lady by the
name of Magnam,.nbout two months ago

self. Fortunately, a young man by the
name of Alfred Wilson, (who derseves a
great deal of credit) was fishing at a con
siderable distance, and was attracted by
the cries of the children. He hastened to
their assistance, and heroically plunged in
to the water, which was very deep, and suc
