Attention is called to the impor
tance of giving ofloet to tho popular
veriiol for constitutional reform, and
of the Congressional apportionment,
rc('raJ of the present I.3giil;itiiro
by the provisions of tho National Con
stitution. Considcrsble spaco is derotod to the
subject of education. Legislation is
atltod to "remoJy any defects in our
bchool system that have heretofore
failed to tunko it thorough, compre
hensive, and universal,'' which is
equivalent to udvocntiog compulsory
education; and liberal appropriations
are recommended both for tin com
mon u:hools and the soldier's orphans'

is apponded, sol fitting mention Is
nude of the publio services of Senator
George Cotinell and IIjii. David
Btanlon, Auditor Gonoral elect, who
Lave died within tho year.
Numerous recommendations and
renewals of former recommendations
are made l y tbo Governor in favor
of legislation which he deems noeoisa
ly or expeJiont. Among tho most im
portant ol thosa are thoso suigop
tiog the passago of laws to nnko vac
cination compulsory, ostablisb a State
Hoard of .alllt, and saoction the ro.
tnovalof the quarantine aialion from
tbe Lazaretto to tho mouth of tbe
Delaware river, or to some paint up
on tho bay.
Tbeso subjocls are eminently wer
thy tbe earnest consideration of the
Legislature, and will doubtless receive
it. That portion of the iuosage rola
tiog tethc coal mines Is no Icu Impor
tant. The frequent and fatal aooi-
denls, and occasional ooourrcneo of
each calamities as thosa of tbe Avon
dale and rittston, is eridenbe either
that lbs atiaiog inspection law is In
adequate, or that its execution has
been placed in lad bands. In either
ease some remedy abculd be applied.
Tbe Governor wisely 'refrains in' this

however, upon the tariiT, deprecating

We are fsst becoming a nation of
schemers to live without genuine work
Our boyt are Dot learning trades ;
our farmers sons are crowding Into

Uiacee; hardly one American girl ia
each hundred will do housework for
wages, however urgent her neod; ao
we are sending to Europe for work
men aod buying of bar artisans mil
lioos worth of products that we ought
lo mske for oursolves. Though our
crop of rascal is hoavy wo do not
grow our own l.omp. Though we are
overrun with lads who deserve flagcl
Intioo, we import our own willows.
Our womeo (unless deceived) shine
ia European fabrios; our own men
dress in foroign clothes; the toye
which amuse our younger children
hive generally reached us over the
sea. We are like the fsrmer who
hired his neighbor's sen to oliop his
wood, food his stock, and run his er
rands, while hia sons lounge at the
grog-hhop, playing billiard, and then
wonder why in spite of bia best efforts
be sinks annually deeper and deeper
into debt, till tbe Sheriff cloans bim
out, nod he starts wsst to begin sgsin
We must turo over a new leaf
Our boye and girls must bo tautbt to
love labor by qualilyiog themselves te
do it efficiently. We mutt turn out
fewer professional and more skilled
artisans, as well as food growers. We
must grow and fabricato two hundred
millions worth per annum, that wo
now import, and so reduce tho foreign
dubt that we have so long and so suc
cessful augmontod year by yoar. We
must qualify our clever boyt to erect
and run laclories, fernacos, rolling
mills, tanners, runchino shops, etc. ;
to open aod work mines, improve and
I ssli ion implements, aud doublo tho
present product of tbeir fsthor's farm.
So shall we stem the tide of tho debt
that sets stosdily tguinst our ehorea,
and ocaso to be visited and annoyed
