TILE FINANCIAL OONDITION O.F PENN-
We are indebted to the Hon, Taos. E. Com-
BAN, Auditor-General, for an advance copy of
the receipts and 'expenditures of this State.
From the report it will at once be observed
that notwithstanding the extraordinary expen
ses incurred by the Rebellion, the State of Penn
sylvania has met heroliabilities promptly, and
has a large surplus on hand to meet the interest
on her public debt falling due on the first day
of February next. ,This result has mainly been
accomplished by the energy and industry of the
Auditor-General, who has labored night and
day, during the past summer, to husband and
collect the resources of this State together.
Large amounts of money have been collected
from corporations and other sources, which
were dile the State for a long time, but
which had been neglected by former Audi
tor Generals. We thank Mr. Connutur in the
name of of the tax-payers of this Common
wealth for his efficient management of her
financial affairs. Mr. CocriaAN has also been
materially assisted by the present efficient State
Treasurer, HENRY D. Mooae, Eq. 134 h De
partments have labored constantly and faith
fully for maintaining the credit of this State at
home and abroad. The business of these two
Departments have been more laborious during
the past summer than they have been since the
organization of the State. Hundreds of bills
created by the rebellion have been closely scru •
tinized by these Departments, and having fre
quently observed the labors performed by the
heads and clerks of both Departments, we can
truly remark that these places have never been
filled by ml_re trustworthy agents, and the fig
ures given below will confirm this statement:

4,517, of whom 147 were naturalized.
