steadiness of legislation is very dcsirablo,

The expenditures of tho administration
of tho government of tho state have been
much increased of late years, and in no de
partment so much as that of the legislative.
Whilo tho increase of busiues and popula
tion furnish a sufficient reason for a gradual
corresponding addition to the expenses of
me ujccuiih;, juuiuury anu treasury depart
ments, it is hard to account for the expenses
of the legislature, which liavo advanced
since November, 1835, in a ratio unparal
leled in the history of the government. It
will be found upon reference to the reports
of the treasurer and auditor general, that
the expenses of this department, for a num
ber of years prior to November, 1835,
were about one bundled thousand dollars,
and are now upwards of one hundred and
Bixty thousand dollars annually. The pub
lic good requires a rigid system of retrench
ment and reform, which, while it will allow
lo faithful public servants an adequate com
pensation for the time nnd talents devoted
to the public, will lop off oil wasteful'and
unnecessary expenditures in every depart
ment. 1 throw out these suggestions from
no wish to dictate to the legislature, but in
a sincere desire to have all alleged abuses
investigated in a spirit of candor and patri
otic devotion to the public good, with a view
to correction, wherever correction shall be
On a candid review of the entire condi

find her laboring under the pressure of an
enormous state debt, heightened by all the
incidental "mbarras3ments arising from the
payment of the interest upon it, and the
monetary derangement; attending it, that
have shaken tho credit of this slate, and of
the sister states, to its foundation, yet there
is no cauiso for despondency or fear. Pru
dence, discretion and economy, on the part
of her legislature, her executive, and her
citizens in a few years replace her on the
solid footing of pecuniary independence.
The industry and energy of her people
leaping wealth from her rich fields of ag
riculture, disemboweling it from her hills
and mountains, and transporting it to mar
ket on he:' rail roads and canals, cannot be
shackled with any pecuniary responsibili
ties that can, for any considerable period,
mar her prosperity or retard her march on
ward to greatness We have fallen, it is
true, on one of those temporary reverses,
that come upon all nations in the progress
of advancement, when delusive systems of
t pubHc prosperity explode nuiler tue test of

ces they pioduce, leave men in wonder
that they lasted so long. It requires, how
ever, but the exercise ofn reasonable de
gree of wisdom, firmness and honesty, in
the present crisis to rescue the affairs of the
commonwealth from tho difficulties by-
which they arc at present beset, however
lormidable these untoward circumstances
have made them appear. Let ell who look
upon her with a jealous or a friendlv eve

How vcrv Ctmsidcrate.-One of the sil
liest arguments that has yet been brought
forward by the leuer;d presses in their en
deavors to entrap the support of the people
in favor of the Hero of Tippecanoe, is the
publication of a letter purporting to have
been received from Gen. Harrison, in which
this Modern Cincinuatus is mado to say,
that IF ELECTED, lie will serve Out one
term! Not-quitoso fast, gentlemen, the
pooplo arc not so gullible as you imagine.
When a candidate is placed before them, in
whom they have confidence, mid whoso ca
pacities suit htm for the office, they will
cheerfully elect him for two terms, without
asking him, prior, upon what conditions
ho seeks their suffrages. If he is unfilled
to -serve two terms as the arguments of
the opposition make Gen. Harrison out to
bo he is certainly unfilled for oiic. We
advise his friends to procure another letter
in which they must inako him express u
willingness to serve for half a. term.
This is Uie only chance they have of elec
ting him and cvci then it will be a tight
squeeze. Stale Cap. Gaz.
