    decision the honor; the rights and tho interests
o f our country.
Anticipating the possibility of a crisis like
t b a t which . h as arrived, instructions were given li
in-August tut, as a precautionary measure
against invasion or threatened invasion, au
thorising Gen. Taylor, if the emergency re
quired, to accept volunteers not from Texas

ma. Mississippi, Tennessee and Itenmeky..—:
And corresponding letters were addressed to
the respective Governors of those States.—
These instructions were repeated, and in Janua
r, l a st, soon after the incorporation of Texas
into our Union of 'States, Gen. Taylor was
further authorised by the President to make a
requiaition upon the Executive of that State
for such of its militia fake as may be needed
to repel invasion. or to secure the country
a gainst apprehended invasion.
On the second day of March he was again
reminded in the event of the approach of any
considerable Mexican force. promptly and effi

clothed , to call to him such auxiliary force as
he might need. War actually existing, and

In further vindication of our rights, and the
defence of our territory, 1 invoke the prompt
action of Congress, to recognize the existence
of the war, and to place at the disposition of
she Executive the means of prosecuting the
war with vigor, and thus hasten the restoration
of peace. To this end I recommend that au
-dimity should be given to call into the public
service a large body of volunteers, to serve for
not less than six or twelve months, urless soon

A volunteer force. is, beyond question, more
efficient than any other description of citizen

made 'sampan us, and this bill provides for
conducting that war with energy and power.
We are rejoiced to learn. by this evening's
mail, that Captain Seth B. Thornton, and Lieu
tenant Mason, with twodragoons, had arrived
safe in Gen. Taylor's camp.
Captain Thornton. discovering the ambus

through the enemy's ranks, and cut his way
with his own sword, with a boldness and intre
pidity that is almost incredible.

DIAN Stu —You inquire of me whether I have used
your Hair Tonic, and with what effect.
Several years ago my hair began to fall rapidly from
the scalp, and I had the prospect of premature baldness.
At length's friend recommended your Hair Tonic. I
used three or four bottles, according to the printed direc
tions, and at the end of six months, my hair was thick
set, and since, its tendency to turn grey was arrested.
I have never before given a certificate, recommending
patent medicines, which indiscriminately used, as they
often are, do much injury; but in a case like the present,
where I know the article to be beneficial, and that it can
do no harm, I have no scruples in stating facts within
my own knowledge. Your's, &c.,

A voice° from the Capitol of the Keystone state,
saying, Arise find the Phitosopher's stone, which will
enable the richest state in the Union to inscribe on her
banners, Pay as you go. In spite of the sneers of the
Europeans. now is . the time to let them know that
Pennsylvania is able to pay her debts, and raiso twen
ty millions to defend her just rights.
To the Commissioners and Treasurer.of the
Gesizzasy :—Although the subject was pressed up
on the attention of the Legislature yet it omitted to pro
vide any additional revenue for the current year. We
must therefore rely on the previous enactments.
The loss to the commonwealth occasioned by the in
jut, done to the public works, approximate 8300,000,
and thus falls exclusively on that part of the semi-annual
interest due in August next. We must endeavor to
make qp this unexpected deficiency by the most prompt
.and vigorous use of the means that are left us. The
increased tonnage during the entire year, it is believed,
will be nearly commensurate with the loss I have sta
ted, and thus the nett tolls, will be about the same as
last year. By the promptness and activity of the Ca
nal Commissioners and their officers, the entire line of
our public work; including all the -branches, are now
in full end successful operation.
I stated in my circular of the 24th of May, 1845,
that " we paid the interest due in February last, and
we can do so in August and Febnpiry nest, if active
and prompt measures are adopted in theseveral counties
of the Commonwealth." Your efforts have fulfilled
these expectations, and our Commonwealth stands re
deemed, froto the dishonor, which for a time rested up.
on her. Let us not falter now. Let as determine to
use all the means in our power. to maintain our ele
vated Porition, and avert the impending calamities which
would fall upon our Commonwealth and our citizens,
should our plighted faith be again broken.
There is -reason for great anxiety, but not despon
dency, as the following brief statement will exhibit--
Our resources may be stated thus:
Assessments for ltf46, estimated nett amt $1,188,100
Do of previous year, do. • 275.000
Nett tolls from public works, 500,000
The interest falling clue in August and February next,
may be stated to be $1,860,000. The ordiusty and
other revenues not smted, it is believed, will be sufficient
to meet the ordinary expensca of government. It will
be thus seen that the prompt and punctual payment of
the ezi , :ting revenues, will place the Treasury in a
condition to meet the accruing interests on the public
As a means of producing this result, 1 call your at
tention to the proposition made in my circular of the
24th of May last. I renew the offer. An abatement
of Gm per cent. will be allowed for the payment pre
vious to the tat of A %qua, of the tumor this year. If
the sum paid approaches near the quota of your county,
this abatement will be made. You have it thus in
your power to benefit. our county and save the Com
monwealth from dishonor. NO flight!: motives of ac
tion can be presented than these, that of interest and
In the event of the inability of your county to avail
itselfof the abatement, it is expected that you will press
the collection of your duplicates as rapidly as possible,
and pay the amount without delay, into the Treasury.
The dublicates having gone forth much earlier this year
than the last, will greatly facilitate your collections.—
:There are arrearagea of former years due from several
counties; these ought to be collected. and paid imme
diately: Foethearrearages of 1845, interest is charged,
and will accumulate until paid. If your county is in
this position, you should not suffer the 100 which this
delay occasions.
We will surmount our present difficulties if our de
termined action be commensurate with the evil which
is impending, and the good we may accomplish. If
we are successful in paying the August interest:l firm
ly believe that the future payments can be made
out a struggle. One the other hand, if we .fail, the
dead weight of $900,000 of unpaid interest, dot to
speak of State dishonor, will lay upon us like an incu
bus, and its paralyzing influence will be felt for rank
I know you duly estimate the importance ofimmedi
ate and prompt action, and rely with entire confidence
that your best efforts will be put forth at this important

subject. " Very respectfully,
