o’clock in tho afternoon, some valuable
properly, on the Sooth aide of Seventh Street, be
tween' Smithfield and Grant, belonging to the I
same jgentleman, will ba sold, positively, as we
an anthemed to say.
There has been, of late, a tensiblo rise in the
value cf real estate in this city and vicinity, and
qtiitih speculative feeling is predicted the com
ing Reason. Bo this as it may, there is no dan
ger of porehasing real cslate in' this city, or vi
cinity. There has been a quiet and steady ad
vance for a long series ol year?, at some times
more rapidly than others, bnt there has ocwi
a retrograde movement,as a general thing,
for}he last-twenty five years, and there is now
less likelihood e ver of such an eveot. The
probabilities are that the advent cf railroads
among us will increase the' valae of all the real
estate in the neighborhood, to the full
Taioe of the cost of the roado—certainly to «
grater value than Pittsburgh has subscribed in
- stocks The sales,to day, being positive, and for
cash, will form corns criterion for the rating cf pro
peity in.their vicinity.
We are enabled, through the thoughtful!
politeneraof (Jot.. Johnston, in lay-the an-j

morning, .without the expense and trouble I
of 'telegraphing it. Copies, sufiicioul to sup- 1
ply tile press of the city, were forwarded by I
mail, to the Post Master, and delivered v
■ the offices on the receipt of a despatch an-j
nouncingitßdeliTeryinHarTiaburgh. What
a world of trouble and anxiety this has
saved -the press 1 Printers every where
will .'.‘appreciate it, and heartily thank ottr
worthy Governor for his considerate kind
tOf tha message itself, we are hapgy to
say, it .is a document honorable to the
State, to its anthor, and to the Whig party. |
But in place of any. strictures of our own,
-.which time scarcely suffices us to prepare
for to-day’s paper, we cordially adopt the
following, from the Harrisbnrgh Tilegraph,
which will be read with general pleasure:
We hazzard nothin- in saying that the
ytinfct message oi Governor Johnston,
which we present to our readers to day, is
the ablest paper that ever issued from the
Executive Department of Pennsylvania.—
It’is a document that will challenge the
highest admiration ot the.people, not only
of . Pennsylvania, but also of our sister
. States.
The eloquent acknowledgment of the
continued mercy of Divine Providence, ‘op
exemplified' in the event*, of the past year,
will tonch a responsive chord iu.the Bosoms
of. ali devout and reverential citizen*. 'The
language of this portion of the Message is,
expressive or the sentiment* of a mind pro
foundly touched with a.sense of the mighty,
obligations wh are under to the “Author
and Guardian of our being, v “whose be
neficence, ” in the earnest language of the
Message, has “ caused all things to work
together for our good; 1 ' arid it cannot fail to
awaken the deepest emotions of gratitude
for the signal immunities and blessings we
have eojoyed.; The fearful ravages of the
pestilence in distant lands, and in other;
partsof our own country, and wars, famine, j
and civil commotions which have blighted i
the hopes, and ruined the industry and pros
parity of the people of Europe, are put in
strong >nd powerful contrast with the health
and happiness of our own State, and-the
peace and prosperity which have been so
eminently enjoyed by the whole American
people. ■{.
The struggles for liberty in the old world
- have not failed to elicit the warmest sym
-7 parities of the'Executive; and he has evident*
■ \j participated, to the fullest extent, in the
feelings wltioh he bo eloquently and truth
fully describes, He has undoubtedly min.
gled his own earnest aspirations upon this,
•ntiject with thesincerest heart-throbs .of the
American people. “It is impossible,” says
' the Message,’“tobehold apeople the subjects |
and oppression;—enlightened by |

which'centnries have heaped upon theta;

demonstrated by its practical workings the
{past year, and its beneficial results cannot
Ibe doubted. The payments from various
sources, to the credit of this fond, during the
t past year, have amounted in the aggregate
i to the sum of S? 71,000. With these means,
for the supply of the sinking fund, together
with such additions as the probable resour-
ces of tbe Treasury, from time to time, may
justify, it is susceptible of easy calculation to
nearly approaches the peri
od when the State taxes may be altogether
repealed, and the burthens of the people re
Several important recommendations are
made in regard to the management of die
public improvements. Tne present system,
it ia alleged, invites unnecessary expendi
tures, and removes ‘ responsibility from the
proner department. It is the opinion of the
Executive that were the number of Cana]
Commissioners increased to five, to be elect
ed hy districts, and these directed to assume,
in addition to the general supervisory duties
now performed, by the Commissioners, the
particular daties of supervisors and super
visors, and the present corps of super
intendents wholly dispensed with, much
practical information of interest to the -'.ate
would be acquired, and a more direct re
.pousibility forthe well-ordered cond.t.on nl
the Public Works, and the economy ot ev
perils secured.
The mamlest wisdom or this proposition,
i will commend il'to the favorable considera
: lion of every unprejudiced mind. At pres-1
ant thereto no guarantee whatever ior the
economical use and satety of the public 1
money. It is pnl into the hands of superin-1
tendetils and supervisors, who are respon
sible for their conduct only to the Canal 1
Commissioners, who, on their part, aFe re
sponsible to no one. The laws bearing upon
this subject, onght to be so amended n» to
place some check upon the personal discre
tion of subordinate officers. Until very re
cently, no account of their expenditures ha*
bean required of supervisors and supenn
tendsnts employed upon the public works.
They have been permitted to draw from the i
Treasury at will, and to apply the monies,
thus drawn as they saw fit, without being,
called upon to render any account. That,
gross and insufferable abuses should be
come inseparable from such a system can
not be wondered at. The whole manage
ment of the'public works has been little'
else than a gigantic scheme *"of fraud and
peculation; and Governor Johnston will have
the unfeigned thanks of every honest citi
zen for thus laying the axe at the root of.
this great evil. Under a continuance ot
Whig rule, these stupendous corruptions
would have been speedily annihilated. As
it ib, however, with a large majority of the
Legislature opposed, in principle, to the Ex
ecutive, the utmost he could do, was to man
ifest a warm desire for the introduction oi
all needful and proper reforms.
Notwithstanding the revision of the las:
Legislature of the laws in relation to com •
raon schools, the system wUi require modi
fication. It does not receive from the citi
zens, says "the message, the favor that a
sound and enlightened system oi education
deserves, and the evil, it is thought, must
exist in tne laws which control us.practicr
important modification? of the la
regard to Bankjmi and Currency, ate pi
posed by the Executive The - n-ner ot
Banking institutions should be restricted to
die real btwiner wauls ol the people; and
it is recommended that uo Bank charter be
renewed until a thorough examination of
the iusitQtion shall have demonstrated itr
entile solvency. The laws intended to pre
vent the circulation ot notes of a less de
nomination dollars, are pracui
disregarded by the citizens, h U therefore
recommended that toe Banks o: the t am
moiiweailh Us authorized :j establish agen
cies or branches, in onset more places, w.u.
permission to issue notes under the denoi
ation of five dollars, to be based upon a t!
ooaite of State Slock in tne hands of the
Treasurer, which are to be at all times liable

Tliis is a wholesome and practical modifica
tion ofilho plan we have heretbtora presented
to' our readers through tho coinin'
Telegraph, and will assuredly men: the high
est approbation of the people.
Though ■ almost wholly devoted, as it
should be, to subjects of local interest, there
lls a spirit of cathcdieitv in the Message, as
broad as the Union itself. The patriotic ken
of Governor Johnston, in surveying the broad
expanse of Uniied Stales territory, can no
whero recognize the limit oronc single, ni
ted, homogeneous American sentiment
Standing upon the soil of a State dial is
; bounded by Mason & Dixon’s line, and
holding a position between die two great
extremes of the Union, which may be said
to command them both with equal facility.
ho yet recognizes no political distinction be- j
tween the one and the other. Tho solemn ,
injunction of the Father of his country, ' in- >
dignantly to frown first dawning ,
ol every attempt tu alienate ono portion oi
our country from tho rest, ’’ has impressed
itself with deep and lasting force upon his
enlarged American heart; and die whisper-
I togs of native patriotism have prompted him
to the forcible and eloquent utterance of sim
ilar sentiments. Tne patriotism of Governor
Johnston, as it is here exhibited, is that oi
no sectional school. Us pnre and gushing
waters were imbibed from springs wmch,
welling np in the centre, have bad their
sources in the widest limits of the Republic.
The following quotation, upon this subject,
does equal honor to his head and hoard, and
wilt lain for him a reputation for enlarged
and liberal patriotism, which might well be
covetud by any statesman in ■ the land.
II When, ” says this admirable document’
'■sectional interest; and jealousies contend
for supremacy, apd’sectional rights are to
bo determined; when questions between
States are controverted, and disregard of na
, tional laws is manifested; in peace and
. 1 war, to prosperity and adversity; in foreign
j or domestic difficulties; the citizens of l’eun
sylvania turn with abiding confidence to tho
National Constitution. Neither tho thirst for
power, nor the phrenzy of party; nor the
prostration of their peculiar interests, can
Bhake their allegiance to the National Gov
ernment, or raise with thorn thu traitor cry
of disunion.”

Has had ibe salutary effect of enabling the Treat-
ary Department with' slight expense in the ex
change or transmission of means, .to mret the
payment ol interest on the public debt iu par
money, as also tonty other creditors of the State
in gcxnt foods The payment of the publi: ha
bililiej*. in the manner aforesaid, and the adoption
of a svstem to extinguish eventually the public
debt, must bring to their par value, the r>tocfca »f
the tjnmmonwealth. U is estimated that SIV
019,000 of the public stocks are held in Ibis coun
try, and the addition in their value, by these simp****, demanded alike by aound policy and
honexiy. will increase their marketable worth m
the bunds of the citizens 51,950,000. To foe
efficiency of the Stale Treasurer, the Auditor
General, and other officers charged with the col*
lection and disbursement of the publie monies
doring the past year, Is justly attributable in a
high decree these favorable results.
The beneficial results of the sinking fund can
not be doubled. The payments from various

The opinion is confidently expressed ‘hal ta<

npjir Miuiftle the Iruth. should an adherence t.
ihfi paltry pursued by the last Legislature, in re
latum to premiums on charter*, and ftnna
ojul measures be authorized and jfoiitmited.
Should such be thecase, the above rum, at «‘>e
present rates, would extinguish upward" o* war
hundred thousand dollars «f the funded debt, our*
mg the present fiscal year. The sources from
which the sinking fund is supplied most neces
•unly increase. The tax on coUaleralinUentancc,
and on. theatre, circus, oud menagerie ''c® o ***
prior t.> the act creating a sinking land.'^d to
the Treasury aboat the sum of $15,000 arnnally.
By the provisions of that act, these have been in
creased la the sums above staled, and the other
sources of revenue have been created by recom
mendations heretofore made to the Legislature.
With these means lor the supply of the sinking
land together with such additions as the probablu
, resource* of the Treasury from Umc may
justify, it is susceptible of easy calculation to de
-1 nearly approaches the period when
I the State taxes may be repealed, and toe burthens ,
Icf the people removed. So manifestly important
I are these results upon the industrial pursuits ol
the citizens, and the interests and honor of the |
I Slate, it is suggested for consideration whether |
I good policy would not require the transfer ot an
I balances tn the Treasury at the end of each year, '
Ito the Comrmrsioncra cf the said Fund. .♦ ■
I Every consideration that can impose itscif on n 1
I government demands the payment of the public |
debt. The local advaatngcsofourComnionwealib, |
I the salubriur-of oor climate, the vastaers of our j
I minern' dcoohita, the fertility of our soil, and the
i prosperity and happiness of the people, alike re-
I quire the repeal of a system of laws, which com-1
! pci emigration, present tnc settlement of i
i voted lands, drive capital from our borders and
i paralyze the industry i f every class of our citizens.
Should these balances remain in the Treasury
1 unappropriated to tbe said Fund, the history of
, the past will remind u* that prodigal expenditures
will bi made to objects of diminished importance |
' Th- subject of the revision and equalization ol
i the laws for raising revenue, is again earnci'ly
i Dressed upon the attention or the Legislature.

from the want of adequate means to prevent or to

great reason for complaint exists ta.-opgbout the

there Irom. so materially affecting tho condition of
the Treasury! reader them objects of iwuliar in
terest- U m believed that an 'ucreaeed amount of
U«u revenue should bo derived irom these work*.
The enormoas appropriations cr the last year, fur
their mainienance in repairs, nod lowardsjth.: pay
meat of debts theretofore* contracted, should have
ulxced them in a sound condition, nnd would au
thorize the couclnsion that a small expenditure
during the present season would he siifiicietit. In
the absence of Ihe-annual reuorl of C«nal
mismocerr, n-> specific amount for these object-,
can be given by the Executive.
The system for the management oflbese improve
menu, invites unnecessary expenditures, and re
moves responsibility from the proper deparaca'..
Were the number of Caaal Commissioners incres
ed to five;— the Sinn* divided into dtaincls for the
election and supervision of each Commissioner,—
the direct and inpediate chargmand control of the
district imposed upon one ot theso officer*, rc
nuiring ol him the performance of the duties now
executed by superintendents and supervisors,in <1
stipulating tor the annual alternation of the «aid
CommiMionem, much practical information of in
terest to the State would be acquired; n direct
responsibility lor the well ordered condition olthe
Public Works, and tho economy ot expenses would

in favor of the restriclion of the number of these 1 1
iosiuulions, to the real buitaess wants of the peo
ple, and refusing a renewal of Bank charters until
a tnorough examination of their affairs had de
monstrated iheir entire solvency; remain unchang
ed. The tax on Banking capital, exacted by the
last Legislature in the granting of charters, and
applied 10 the payment of the public debt, has re-
Hulled in se-urmg to that object a wm exceeding
one hundred thousand dollars. White this tax
pliould not be increased to an extent which would
cripple the resources of these institutions, the pre
sent amount cannot l>« considered an unfair
equivalent fir ike privileges conferred^ndshould
theref ire continue to be imposed aa a legitimate
source cf revenue.
Thii Uws intended Jo prevent the circulation ot
note* •>! a less denomination than five doll&re, are
practically disregarded by the citisens. In a gov
ernment founded on popular opinion, experience
would tench the impolicy of continuing in foree
statiuorv provisions, which are generally inopera*
live. The violation, with impunity, of laws, how
ever unimportant, will lend to a disregard of oth
ers. mdispensible to the security of society. It is,
indeed, to tw regretted that this circulation has not
been prevented, as much evil has been experi
enced bv the community, from the reception of
itus irresponsible paper. Tne. amount m circula
tion witnm the State, supplied by institutions ot
adjo n ng Stale*, is estimated at not less th in five
mti'ions of dol'ar*. ar.d i* valueless, exo-pt in lc
eolilie* near the Banks by which it ia issued. To
iho exteut ol this circnlauon, tae constitutional cur
rency. nnd the note ofsound specie paying banks
oftbc Cotnmo. wealth are diaplsced. The solven
cy ('fine institutions issuing this paper cannot be
known to tne citizens, nnd it passes from hand to
hand the fcpmsentativ * of n value it may not t>oa
over which our laws can haye no control.
' In endeavouring to eradicate an acknowledged
en'.tbe pranicsl Statesman will frvqaeniiy find
tor yielding to popular Inclination, and
will consult the welfare of his constituents by stri
ving to mitigate what cannot be removed. If,as
i* oiL-ged, the husiues* opperstions of the commu
nity require n circulating medium, other than gold
nnd stver. of a less denomination than five dollars,
a suppiy under the regulations and rotretions ol
our laws would noi be open to the objection* of
the existing method. Were the Banks ofthe Com
raonwealih authorized to establish agencies or
branches m one or more places, and permission
g.ven >U'-h brunches to i**ne said notes, upon n
statement in detail by the parent institution being
made to the Audi'or Genera', satisfactory to the
1 said officer, of the entire solvency of the said Bant;
*« minting it* whole awet* nnd liabilities-designa-
I ting the proportion of .M c«|stal slock to be em
ployed at the said agency*."? branch, which in no
.•as.* should exceed a graduated percentage of the
said oai-iiul M«ek; and should dopcute with the
AuJitor General an nmoont ol Slate.Slocksequal
to the amount of notes to be issued; the Auditor
t'rencrs! thereupon required Jo grant n liebeac lo
*nid Bank lo establish said agency or branch, and
to issue wiid notes, marked by the said officer na
the wue of tho said branch and redeemable at ibe
rmuUer of the parent insiilution a sound con
vertible currency could sooadisplace the present
irresponsible psi>er of foreign institution*, and
would i. (ford security to the citizen, withoula with
drawal ol tho necessary circulation. *
Notes issued under the foregoing restrictions,
having their redemption secured in Ibe manner
herein i-oioted out, would ncresiumly reoeiye the
confidence of the people, from tho fact thalthe
stocks pledged, would, undar every condition of
things .ensure ibeir eventual payments In times
of commercial convulsions the specie might be
drawn from the vaultsoflhe Bank,—Uie means of
siockholdera might fail,— speculative value might
bo affixed to property* shrewd men, watching
ihc Sian, of the times, could relcaso tnemselves
from individual liability;—hut the stocks ofthe
Commonwealth would remain valuable and avail
able tor their certain redemption. Had Ike notes
now m circulation from the bankß of the Slate, a
basis of this character, oven lo a small proportion
41 the capital atoefe of these institutions, the tosses
resulting I’romo failure lo pay their liabilities would
bu largely diminished. , . ,
These views are presented to tho Legislature
for the purpose "f urging upon'the necessity of de
vising means tc prolec.Oi.ur citizens from the los
m;- incurred in the |Vdur« ofßanking Institutions.
In any wc I digested system it will afford me pleas
