The public, debt on the first day of July last. as

Privileges like these would render the poses

most desirable to every person of small means '

eighty-four national hanks' had been organized, a
considerable number of Which were conversions
from State bank.s. Changes from State systems

and it is: hdped thatvery soon there will be in the

from this change in the banking systems of the
country can hardly be l&stioned. The national
system will create a reliable and permanent Mu

614 acres were entered under the homestead laW.
The remainder was located with military land
warrants, agricultural scrip certified to StUtes for
railroads, and sold for cash. The cash received
from Sales and location fees was $1,019,446. '
The laconic from sales during the fiscal year
ending June 30, 1864, was $678,007 21, against
$136,977 95 received during the preceding yeai.
The agpregate number of acres surveyed during
the year has been equal to the quantity disposed
of, and there is open to_ settlement about 133,-

The great enterprise of connecting the Atlantic
with the Pacific States by railways and telegraph
lines ha , been entered upon with a vigorthat gives
assurstam of success, notwithstanding the embar
raqsments arising from the prevailing‘high pric'es
of materials and labor. The route of the main
line of the road has been definitely located for one
hundred miles westward from the initial point ct
Omaha City. Nebraska, .and a preliminary loca
tion of the Pacific railroad of California has been
made from Sacramento eastward to the great
bend of the Truckee river in Nevada.
Numerout discoveries of gold, silver and cinna
bar mines have been added to the many heretofore
known, and the country. occupied by the Sierra
Nevada and Rocky mountains, and the subordi
nate ranges, now teems with enterprising labor,
which is richly remunerativcf. It is believed that
the product of the mines of precious metals in that
region has, during the year, reached, if not ci

It was recommended in my last annual message
that our Indian system be remodeled. Congreas,
at its lasflession, acting upon the recommenda
tion, did provide for reorganizing the system in
California, and it is believed that under the preS

The liberal provision made, by Congress for
paying pensions to invalid soldiers and sailors of
the republic, and to the widowS, orphans and de
pendent mothers of those who have fallen in bat
tle, or died of disease contracted, or of wounds
received in the service of their country, have been
diligently administered. There have been added
to the pension rolls, during the year ending the
30th day of June last, the names of 16,770 invalid
soldiers, and of 271 disabled seamen, making the
present number of army invalid pensioners 22,787,
and of navy invalid pensioners 712.
Of widows, orphans and mothers, 22,198 haVe
been placed on the army pension rolls, and 248
on the navy rolls. The present number of army
pensioners of this class is 25,433, and of navy pen
sioners 793. At the beginning of the year the
number of revolutionary pensioners was 1,430;
only twelve of them were soldiers, of whom seven
have since died. The remainder are those who,
under the law, receive 'pensions because of rela
tionship to revolutionary soldiers. During the
year ending the 30th of June, 1864, $4,504,616 92
have been paid to,pensioners' of all classes. '
I cheerfully commend to your continued patron
age the benevolent institutions of the District of

'hatters of local interest, to the report of the Sec-.
reta The ry. i•
Agricultural Department, under the super
vision of its present energetic and faithful head,
is rapidly commending itself to the great and vital
interest it was treated to advance. It is peculi
arly the people's department, in which they feel
moil` directly concerned than in any other. : 1 I
commend it to the continued attention and foster
ing care of Congress:
' The u•ur continues. Since the last annual ties
sageall the important lines and positions then oc
cupied by oar forces have been maintained; and
our arms have steadily advanced,-thus liberating
the regions left•in rear, so that Missouri, Ken
tucky, Tennessee, and parts of other States have
again produced reasonably fair crops. "
The most remarkable feature in the tuffitary
operations of the year is General Sherman's:at
tempted march of three hundred miles directly
through the insurgent region. 'lt tends to slow
a great inerease'of our relative strength, that our
General-in•Caief should feel able to confront and
hold in check every active trce of the enemy.
and yet to detach a well appointed large army to
move on Such an expedition. The result not vet
being known, conjecture in regard to it is not here
Important movements have also occurred dur
ing the year to the effect of moulding societyfur
durability in the Union. Although short of cOni
plete success, it is much in the right direction that
twelve thousand citizens in each of the States of
trkansas and Louisiana' haie organized ldyal
state governments, with free comititutions, and
are earnestly struggling to administer them. The
movements in the same direction noire extensive.
_ .
though less definite, in Missouri, Kentucky, gad
Tennessee should not be overlooked. But Mary
land presents the example of complete success.
Maryland is secure to liberty and Union for all
the future. The genius of rebellion will no More
claim Maryland. Like another foul spirit, b;iing
driven out, it may seek to tear her, but it Will
, •
woo her no more.
At the last session of' Congress a propcised
ameedment of the Constitution, abolishing slavery
throughout the United States, passed the Senate,
but failed for lack of the requisite two-thirds Vote
in the House of Represeutatives. Althoughtthe
present is the same Congress, and nearly the same
members, and, without questioning the wisdom
or patriotism of those who stood in opposition, 1•
venture to recommend the re-consideration and
passage of the measure at the present session.
Of course the abstract question rs not changed:
but an intervening election' shows, almost certain
ly, that the next Congress will puss the measure
if this does not. Hence there is only a question
of time as to when the proposed amendment Will
go to the States for their action. And, as it is to
so go, at all events, may we not agree that the
sooner the better l
It is not claimed that the election has imposed
a duty on members to change their views or their
votes, any further than, as an additional element
to be considered, their judgment may be affected
by it. It is the'voice of the people now, for. the
first time, heard updn the question. • In a great
national crisis, like ours, unanimity of action
Mixing these seeking a common end is very desir
able, almost indispensable. And yet no approach
to such unanimity is attainable, unless some ;def
erence shall be paid to the will of the majority,
simply because it is the will of the Majority.: In
this ease the common end is the tuainteumnie of
the Union; and, among the means to secure that
end, such will, through the election. is most clearly
declared in favor of suchconstitutional a menduient.
The most reliable indication of public purpose
in this country is derived through our popular
elections. Judging by the recent canvass and its
result, the purpose of the people; within the loyal
States, to maintain the integrity of the Union,was
'never more firm, nor more nearlyneanimous than
now. The extraordinary calmness and-good or
der with which the millions of voters met, and
mingled at the polls, give strong assurance ofthis.
Not only all those who supported the Union ticket,
so-called, but a great majority of the opposing
party also, may be fairlyelaimed ha entertiun; and
to be actuated by, the same purpose.
It is an unanswerable argument to this effect,
that uo candidate for any•Otfice whatever, high or
low, has ventured to seek votes on the avowal
that he - was for giving up the Union. There have
been much impugning of motives, and much beat{
ed controversy us to the proper means and 'best
mode of advancing the Union Cause; but, on the
distinct issue of Union or no Uniod, the politicians
have shown their instinctive knowledge that there
js Ito diversity among the people. In affording the
people the fair opportunity of showing, one to
another and to the world, this firmness and unan
imity of purpose, the election has been of vast val
ue to the national cause.
The election has exhibited another fact not less
valuable to be known—*—the fact that we do not
approach exhaustion in the most important branch
of national resources, that of living men--While
it - is melancholy to reflect that the war has filled
so many graves, and carried moumingto so many
hearts, it is some_relief to know that, compered
with the surviving. the fallen have been so few.
Wifle corps and ditisiotia, and brigades, and regi
ments have formed, fought, and dwindled, and:
gone out of existance, a great majority of men '
who cm/posed theta are still living. The +same id
true of the naval service. The election return, '
prove this.
$o many voters could not else be fotiad. The
States regularly holding elections, bet now and
four years ago, to wit: Californid,Votmecticut, '

Island, Vermont, Wait ritgitiiit; and Wisconsin.
' cast 3,982,011 votes now, against 3.870,222 CaSt
then, showing an aggregate now of 3,982411.
To this is to be added 33,762 cast now In the
new States of Kansas and Nevada, which States
did mot vote in 1860, thus swelling the aggregate
to 4,015,773 and the net increase during the three
years and a half of war to 145,551. A table isap- •
pendedshowitigparticulars. To this again should :
be added the number of all soldiers in the field -
from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey.-
Delaware, Indiana, Illinois, and California, who.
by the laws of those States, could not vote away
from their homes, and which cannot be less than
90,000. Nor yet is that all. The Number in or
ganized l'erritories is tnple now what it was four
years ago, - while thousands white and black, join
us as the national acme press back the insurgent
~- .
So much is shown affirmatively and negatively ,
by. the election. - It is not material to inquire how
the increase has been produced. or to show that
it would have been greater but for the war, which
is probably - true. The important fact remains de
monstrated, that we have more men now than w e
had when the war began : that we are not exhaue.
ted. nor in process of extbnstiou; that we are
gaining strength, and may, if need be, maintain
the-contest indefinitely. This as to men. Mate
rial resources are now more complete and abun
dant than ever.
The natiotal resources then, are unexbatisted,
and, as we believe, inexhaustible. The public
purpose to mestablislcand maintain the• national
authority is unchanged, and as we believe tin
clkingeable. The manner of continuing the effort
reninuns to choose. On careful consideration of
all the evidence accessible, it seems to me that no
attempt at negotiation with the insurgent leader
could result in any good. He would accept noth
ing short of severance of the_ Union—precisely
what we will not and cannot give. His.declara
tioni tel this effect are explicit and oft-repeated.
Ho does not attempt to deceive us. He affords us
no excuse to deceive ourselves.
He cannot voluntarily re-accept the Union ; we
cannot voluntarily yield it., Between him and us
the issue is distinct, simple, and inflexible. It is
an issue Which can duly be tried by war, and de
cided by victory. If we yield, we are beaten; if
the Southern people fail him, he is beaten. Either
way, it would be the victory and defeat following
war. What is true, hoWever, of him who heads
the insurgent cause is not necessarily true of those
who follow.
Although he cannot re-accept the Union, they
can Some of them, we - know, already desire
peace and re-union. The number dim& may in
crease. They can, at any, moment, have peace
simply. by laying down their arms and snbmitting
to the national authority under the Constitution.
After so much, the Government could not, if it
would, maintain war against them. The loyal
people would not sustain or allow it.
If questions should remain, we would adjust
them by the peaceful means of legislation, confer
ence, coasts and votes, operating only in consti
tutional and lawful channels. Some certain, and
other possible, questions are, and would be, - be
"yondlhe Executive power to adjnst; as for in
stance, the admission of members into Congress,
and whatever might require the appropriation of
money. The Executive power itself would be
greatly diminished by the cessation of actual war.
Pardons and remissions of forfeitures, however,
would still be within Executive controL In what
spirit and temper this would be exercised can he
fairly judged by the past.
A year ago general pardon and amnesty, upon
specified terms, were offered to all, except certain
designated classes, and it was; at the same time.
made known that the excepted classes were still
within contemplation of special clemency. Du -
, ring the year many availed themselves of the gen
eral provision, and many more would, only that
the signs of bad faith in some led to such precau
tionary measures anendered the practical procee
less easy and certain. During the same time also
special pardons have - been granted to individuals
of the excepted classes, and no voluntary
tion has been denied
Tha, practically, the door has been, for a full
year, open to all, except such as were not in con
ditidn to make free choice—that is such as 'were
in custody or under constraint. It is still so open
to all. But the time may come, - probably will
come, when public 'duty shall demand that it be
closed, and that in lieu, more vigorous measures
than heretofore'shall be adopted.
In presenting, the abandonment ofarmed resist
ance to the national authority on the part of
insurgents, as the only indispensible condition to
ending the waron the part of the Government, I
retract nothing heretofore said as to slavery. I
repeat the declaration made a year ago; that
"while I remain in my present position I shall not
attempt to retract or modify the emanciPatiou
proclamation, nor shall I return to slavery an
person who is free by the terms of that proclama
tion, or by any of the acts of Congress."
If the people should, by whatever mode or
means, make it an executive duty to re-enslave
such persons, another, and not I, Inuit be their
instrument to perform it. . •
In stating a single condition of peace, I -mean
simply to say that the war will cease on the part
of the Government, whenever it shall have ceased
on the part of those who began it.

Wherever you go now you find The people af
fected with the oil ti , ver. The disease is as
prevalent in our State as was the gold fever in
the most hale', on days of California. In fact for
tunes are now made quicker and larger from the
oil wells of Pennsylvania than ever they were
from the gold mines of California. Men who
were recently scarcely worth the coat on their
backs, in Western Pentinsyhania, now count
their dollars by. the hundred thousand. The
changes almost scelus like some of the works of
the tabled Aladdin : and no wonder that it ex
cites those who are ntibitous for wealth to an
unusual anxiety to be " in the rine and among
the favored ones of oily fortune. We have no
doubt in the end that a good many will find it
" oily gammon," but for all that there is enough
of EltleCM about it to make it extremely inter

is close of kin to "Job's turkey," and wakes up
in the morning to receive the intelligence that he
has "struck oil" and is the possessor of a fortune,
is a "change of base" that scarcely any of us
would object to; indeed, it is a change that thous,

stocks, oil V% eng, and oil ever)thing are now the
subject of conversation on the cars, in the botch+,
on the streets, in the drawing room, and when

a great revolution -in- traveling—that travelers
will soon oil the soles of their shoes, step on the
railroad bars and slide away with lightening
