the general policy of the State -adminis- ! lisLment of industrial schools, wherein
tratioti for the past few years, although I
believe some changes might be for the
public good and to these 1 shall, briefly
allude . Having been closely connected
with the finances of the State since 1SGG,
I ppeak knowingly when I say that the
revenues hive been faithfully collected ;
extravagant appropriations have bec
avoided : taxation has been equalized by
the repeal of the most burdensome taxes,
aud by'striet economy and good manage
ment the public debt lias been largely
reduced. The policy of paying off the
entire indebtedness of the State rs, I be
lieve, fully indorsed by Jhe tix-payers,
and it eliall be my aim to adhere to that
THE PC BMC DEBT.
The public debt, however, decreasing
while the revenues are increasing, it oc
curs to me that a further reduction o( the
latter should be made during the current
session of the Legislature. The increase
in the value of our real estate and the
products of our manufactories, the steady
development of our. resources, and the
expansion of our railway system, are rap
idly enriching our people. If we meas
ure the aggregate of our wealth and its
growth upon the basis of the late census,
we cau readily understand how a lighter
tax imposed upon the present taxed pto
perty will meet all our necessities in the
future, provide an ample fund for the
liquidation of our debt, and give a decid
ed impulse to the useful enterprises thus
relieved. I siucerely trust, however that
in any attempt to Lessen the burdens of
taxation, the Legislature will exercise a
wise discretion, and properly discrimin
ate in favor of our industrial interests.
OUU MINERAL WEALTH.
In every part of this Commonwealth
are found rich deposits of minerals. To
make them available and productive
should be our earnest aim, and shall re
ceive a large share of my attention. It
can alone be done by the intelligent em
ployment of labor and capital. This is
an object of immense interest, and can
best be subserved by first providing the
highest possible knowledge, of the charac
ter and location of tho most valuable
minerals. Labor can be made inviting
by making it remunerative."" Ita profits
must depend largely upon the measure
of protection afforded by Congress to our
home industries, a question which may
safely be committed to our Representa
tives in the National Legislature.
CAPITAL AND LABOR.
Capital is the water for the wheel and
should be abundent, and the rates of in
terest should be easji for active and
wholesome enterprise, and whatever leg
islation will best serve this end should
receive general support. Money will al
ways receive the highest rates, the secur
ity being the same : and for that reason
it now gravitates to neighboring States,
where the legal rates are less than onr
own. If we cannot remove our restric
tions, and make money as free as any
other commodity, at least let us. permit
the same rate as allowed by other States '
and thereby retain it within onr
. PUBLIC SCUOOLS.
'4t will b my pieaeusp, as it ia my du
ty to have a watchful care over the school
system of our State. No part of our
governmental policy should command the
employment of more wisdom than that
which if to promote the instruction of our
youth, it is a source cf pride and satis
faction that our people contribute so
free ly to an olject bo worthy as our
schools, and the report of the superin
tendent of common echooljlnust convince
every reader of the happy results accru
ing from the judicious management of
our eiucitional system. But while the
doors of our schools re opened wide to
every one, it is sad to think that there
are seventy five thousaud children iu the
State who do not, whether prevcuted by
the uecessi'i -s of their parents, or other
wise, at!i;nd and receive the blessei priv
ileges of these schools, This is a matter
of grave import, aud exacts of cs all,
people and Legislature alike, earnest and
Ia th is connect ion, let me say a word
in regard to a eubjects that has often en-,
gaged my thoughts, and to which I in
voke the attention of our law-makers.
No part of our system of education has
secured so universal commendation a.'.
; that which i3 embraced ia the circle of
helpless condition of these little ones
touchingly appealed to tho hearts of onr
people, aud the response was the- estab
lishment of the orphans' schools that are
j now the pride of our State. But in res
cuing these childreu from destitution, aud
providing for their education until they
had attained the age of 1G years, have
we filled the measure of our duty to

- THIS MILITIA.
It is highly important that in tirms of
insurrection and riot there should be at
commaud a rocd aud efficient force of
militia to assist the civil power to pro
tect property and maintain its authority.
To create such a force it seems absolute
ly necessary that the State must extend
its aid iu a more substantial way to those
who enlist iu her service. The fines for
.the non performance of militia duty arc
obnoxious. to many of our best citizens,
and yield at best but a slender income,
and that, too, on a wrong basis, for pro
perty and not the individual should be
taxed. The military should be well dis
tributed throughout the State, and the
number of companies limited, and within
the limit, ts make them efficient, every
company accepted, when tound to be ap
to the proper standard of numbers, drill
and discipline, should receive directly
from the public treasury at least S300
The fii'0 and life insurance companies
are making an effort to secure uniform
legislation in all the States, and the
States having a large home interest in
insusance have been the first to adopt
that principle. To impose heavy fees
and taxes npon insurance companies in
corporated in other States, and doing
business in this, reacts upon the home
companies by reason of the reciprocal
laws of those States. If it ii deemed
desirable to protect aud foster the home
insurance iutetest, already too long neg
lected, let uniform la-.v3 be enacted. To
me it seems this interest is of sufficient
importance to warrant the temporary loss
of a portion of the revenue now received
from the foreign companies. The reve
nue from our own companies will increase
by reason of their enlarged business, and
we will thus be compensated for such
The necessity for immediate action on
the part of our poople to insure the suc
cess of the Centennial Exhibition must
be realized by every thinking man. Its
failure will be to our lasting shame its
success must fedouud to the honor and
permanent benefit of the Commonwealth.
Located in our metropolis, which is fast
moving to the front of the manufacturing
cities of the world affording an ' opportu
nity to display the products and resour
ces of our State, and opening to foreign
era new channels of information as to onr
character and enterprises, it certainly . is
the imperative duty of every citizen who
loves hia State to lend his countenance
aud support to this great exhibition. The
dignity and good name of the Common
wealth are at stake. Let us not forfeit
these by a lack of public spirit, or by
mistaken economy. Any proper plan

There is one paramount and grow
evil, however, ta which, by my oath as

a citizen, I am constrained to ask yenr

legislation or tb-3 abuie of le;;i.-lative ' c

language too strong and it seems but tho

will confine it to public oljccts and make

There is another snlject to TiLich 1
may be permitted to advert, beciu-:e it
concerns one of my most iuipoit.mt fuuc-.
tion3. I refer to ibu pardoning power.
The exc!cu:c of tLia power tests exclu
sively within the direction and conscience
of the Executive; And when we consider
the importunities of ITie friends of a con
demned man, aud their natural inclina
tion to use every influence to obtain a
pardon, it must be conceded that this
power is a trying and dangerous one with
wicu to invest any individual. Any
provision that would relieve the C0IJ
science aud divide the responsibility of
the exercise of this power must surely
commend itself to good the sense of our
' There is a popular demand too, that
the sinking fund, containing bonds that
represent the proceeds of tho sale of the
publio works, and which are applicable
alone to tie payment of the public debt,
shall be kept sacred for the purpose to
which it is dedicated, ar.d that .the safe
guards of this fund shall be made so
eticng as to protect it from every en
croachment, however ingeniously plann
ed or powerfully supported. To this
demand the Constitutional Convention
will doubtless respond ; and for myself I
may be permitted to say that no legisla
tion impairing the security of this fund,
or changing its character, ever can re
ceive my sanction.
In view of the prospect that the Leg
islature will, after this session, be' dives
ied of its power to legislate for special
objects, a popular apprehension is pre
vailing that interested parties will push
their schemes at this juueture, and make
extiaordtnery efforts to control legisla
tion. I deem it my duly to impress upon
the Legislating the uecessity of examin
ing with more than ordinary care every
measure submitted for their considera
tion. HOARD OK PUBLIC CIIABITIKS.
Too much praise cannot be accorded
to the honorable aud humane gentlemen
who constitute the Board of Public Char
ities for their valuable services, gratuii
ously bestowed, in supervising the mani
fold and important public trusts the State
has confided to their care. I take great
pleasure in inviting the attention of the
Legislature to the suggestions and work
of this excellent board, and shall unite in
any plan that will help theso gfutlemen
to accomplish their beneficent designs.
We have great cau.-e for thankfulness,
my fellow-citizen, when we contemplate
the happy and prosperous condition of

tho ravages and waste of our great civil
war, is moving forward to a new era of
grogress and development. And in this
march to a higher destiny in which all
the States are united, Pennsylvania
should have a place iu the van, a posi

telligence and character of her citizens,
the magnitude of her resources, the ex

grand record of her patriotism. To
maintain this position for our proud old
