the shock will be great enough to lead the
public mind to enquire after a remedy for
these periodical convulsions. And, surely,
We may be permitted to hope, that the good
sense of the people will never again be im
posed upon by Those crude experiments which
have, on some former occasions, so fearfully
aggravated the evils they were intended to
remedy. I respectfully advise the General
Assembly against all such expet irnents. The
rejniedy to be. permanent, must be a natural
one; artificial means may add to present ar
rangements; but cannot correct them.
, An extensive increase of banking capital
and other expedients, will, doubtless, be pres
sed upon your . .attention ; but it is hoped that
no such fallacy may find favor. Nor is there
any sufficient reason fur the alarm and sensi
tiveness manifested in certain quarters; the
real wealth of the country still exists, and
the natural elements of prosperity are no less
than heretofore. It is the shadow, not the
substance that is passing away. The busi
ness community should look the danger
bra.vely in the face, and by their energy, hon
esty and 'renterprise, overcome, it. Mutual
confidence and forbearance should be cher
ished by all, as a means of accomplishing
this desirable end.
In accordance with the provisions of a law
passed in April last, a vote of the people was
taken, at the October election, on the policy
of prohibiting the manufacture and sale of
intoxicating liquors, 158,342 votes were cast
in favor of the - measure, and 163,510 votes
The proper regulation of this subject great
ly concerns the moral welfare of the people,
and for that teason will claim your anxious
consideration. Perhaps no other moral ques
tion within the range of your authority, so
deeply interests the people of every class,
race and condition. Indeed, the immoderate
use of intoxicatinn , °
drinks is an evil that has
left. its fatal mark in every vicinage. Its
progress, fortunately, has been steadily resis
ted by individuals and societies, who have
employed the power of truth and reason
against it. These efforts have done much,
and may do more hereafter to mitigate the
evil. Avoiding all vexatious encroachments
upon the rights and privileges of every citi
zen, there is clearly no reason why the influ
ence of a well designed law, regulating and
restraining the sale of intoxicating liquors,
should not be brought to the aid of these in
dividual efforts. Although the vote of the
people would seem to indicate their aversion
to the particular measure of reform proposed,
it is not to be inferred, for that reason they
are averse to all attempts at reformation.—
Such an inference, I are confident would not
be a true reflection of their sentiments. So
farlrorn this, they acknowledge the existence
of the evil and the necessity of proper reme
dies. Our present license laws, to this end,
might, in my opinion, be usefully revised—
the object of such revision being to lessen
the vice of intemperance. That those laws
need such revision, is conceded. So far as
it relates to the city of Philadelphia, they are
peculiarly prejudicial to public morals, and
seem to have been constructed to promote the
convenience of drinking, far more than to
restrain its evil conseqnences. 'The subject
is worthy of your early and deliberate con

The general law of 1849, withamendments
and modifications, was re-modeled by the last
Legislature. The most material parts of the
old law, which were omitted hi the new,
were the sub-district, the endowment, and
sectarian features. The former was rejected
oecause of the unnecessary multiplication of
offices which it authorized, and the conflict
which perpetually arose between thezcom
mitt'ees and directors ; and the latter, because
in manifeSt hostility to the true intent of the
Common School system. These previsions,
which seemed to contemplate a separate
school establishment, under sectarian patron
age, although controlled by the Common
School directors, were originally engrafted
upon the acts of 1836 and 1838, and were
again re-enacted in 1849. - They were very
properly stricken from the system by the law
of last session. Should efforts be made in
the future, at similar innovations, - -come
whence they may, it is hoped they may be
properly rejected. The system to be effectu
al, must be simple and uniform in its opera
tions. Special legislation, inconsistent with
the general law, applicable to particular lo
calities or districts, to answer temporary or
partial "ends, always has, and always will
embarrass the administration of the general
system, and should for this reason be careful
ly avoided. The integrity of its forms, not
less than the means to sustain its operations,
should be constantly maintained, and sacred
ly cherished by the government.
A new feature, in the system, adopted in
the law of last session, creating the office of
County Superintendent, has not, as yet, been
fully tested, and there evidently exists some
-diversity of opinion as to the wisdom of the
provision. It is already very obvious at
least, that its beneficial workings must de
pend mainly upon the character of the agents
selected to-carry it into operation. Compe
tent and faithful Superintendents may pro
duce the happiest results; whilst the agency
of the ignorant
,or ineflicient will be atten
ded by tlti reverse. consequences. In order
to give this new feature of the law a fair tri
al, it will be necessary, therefore, for the di
rectors, in the respective counties to select
Superintendents with sole reference to their
adaptation_ to the duties of the station.
Of the many obstacles in the way of the
complete success of our" Common School-sys
tem, the one most prominent, and most dif
ficult to remove, is the want of competent
teachers. In some communities, I regret to
say, the system has fallen into comparative
inefficiency, because good teachers cannot
be fonnd, and in others, the most vexatious
consequences have arisen from the employ
ment of the illiterate and incompetent.—
Nothing could exercise a more p:ejudicial
influence; indeed, between a very tad teach
er and none at all, the latter alternative might
in many instances ; be preferred.' This defi
eiency is clearly manifest, and hard to obvi
ate. Some of the best minds of the state
have been occupied and perplexed with it;
and until recently no • general and practical
plan for its removal had been devised.
The plan of granting permanent profession
al certificates, by officers skilled in the art of
teaching, and eminent in literary and scien
tific acquirements, to teachers who satisfac
torily pass" a thorough examination, in the
several, branches of study, which the act of
May, 1854, requires to be taught -in every
district, and also. in the art of. teaching—is
already obviously effecting decided impreve
ment.in•this regard, and it is believed will
do much towards placing the profession up-
or. a high and firm basis. Namal schools,
it is urged, could in addition, to some extent
supply the deficiency, but the expenses of
such an institution would he heavy.
The source of this difficulty, :t is clear,
can be traced, in a great measure, to the prop
er appreciation in the public mind, of the po
sition and business ofa teacher. - The- profes
sion for this reason, in addition to the absence
of fair compensation, has not been attractive.
Indeed it has scarcely- been regarded as a
profession at all, but rather as a preliminary
step to some other pursuit. Well directed
efforts have recently been made to change
the general sentimetiteon this point, and I re
joice in the belief that these have not been
in vain; and that the day is not far distant,
when the profession of teacher will be equal
to the aspirations of the most ambitious of
our people; when its distinctions, dignities
and pectin - jai y rewards, will command the
time and attention of the most gifted. I eau
see no reasons why this state of feeling
should not prevail; why the profession of
teacher should not rank in honor and profit
with the other learned professions; why the
science of developing the human intellect—
of giving scope and force to mind—of eleva
ting the moral faculties of our race—of con
trolling the passions and tempering; the de
sires, should not be esteemed as highly as
those professions and callings, whose orna
ments have received all their capacity and
polish at the hands of the comparatively
humble and illy rewarded teacher.
I earnestly recommend the common school
system to your guardian care, as the most
sacred of all our institutions. The offspring.
• of a constitutional injunction on the Legisla
ture—the -extension and perpetuity of its
usefulness is the plain duty of all. Resting
at the very foundation of the government,
its practical workings should be a true reflec
tion of our republican system, and its bles
sed opportunities made available to all, re
gardless of rank, or condition, or persuasion.
It should aid the poor, advance the rich, and
make ignorant the wise.
I confidently anticipate for it, a day of
greater perfection and wider influence. No
better object could engage the attention of
government, or consume its means, than the
education of the people in'the most compre
hensive sense of the term, embracing the use
of letters, the cultivation of the moral facul
ties, and the diffusion of christian truth. In
this we have the surest guarantee for the en
joyment of civil liberty and religious free
dom. Such an education may be safely
claimed as the most potent means for pre
venting crime—of increasing individual hap
piness and national dignity—of promoting
chi istianity and civilization—of extirpating
moral and political evils—of elevating, and
adorning our social condition.
Our various charitable and reformatory in
stitutions—so creditable to the State, and
which, in their practical operations, have
done so much for the relief of suffering hu-.
man ity—will claim the continued care and
bounty of the Commonwealth.
The State Lunatic Hospital at Harrisburg,
under its present efficient control and manage
ment, meets the just anticipation of its wise
and benevolent advocates. Its humane and
benignant agency in ameliorating the condi
tion of the unforunate class for whose relief
it was designed, can be judged by no ordina
ry standard. The benefits of such an insti
tution rise above all • mere pecuniary esti
mates. Its purposes address themselves to
the best and noblest feelings of our nature,
and can only be rated - at the price of human
A. somewhat dissimilar, though not less
meritorious institution has recently been es
tablished in Philadelphia, for the mental
training of the Idiotic and Imbecile. The
astonishing results it has already achieved in
developing and invigorating weak and clou
ded intellect, should secure for it public con
fidence and patronage. It commends itself
to the bounty and care of the State.
The institutions for the education of the
Deaf and Dumb, and Blind, will also need,
as they justly merit, the usual annuity from
the State. They are in a flourishing condi
tion: and continue to bestow numberless bles
sings upon the unfortunate beings committed
to their charge.
As a scheme for correcting and reclaiming
wayward and offending youth, the House of
Refuge stands pre-eminent ; and is every.
where gaining pubic confidence. Its gene
ral influence upon this class of erring crea
tures is far more effectual and humanizing
than that of the ordinary modes of punish
ment, It takes charge of those whose offen
ces are often the result of circumstances ra
ther than criminal intent; who fall by the
influence of bad example, of wicked associ
ation, of idle habits or animal necessities, or
who sin because of the utter want of moral
and mental perception ; who do wrong ra
ther than right because they have not the
power to distinguish between them. For
such unfortunatjbeings, the House of Refuge
possesses the advantages of restraint and cor
rection—withmoral and intellectual training,
as-well as of instruction in the usual pursuits
of life, without the disgrace and chilling in
fluence of prison confinement. The results,
therefore, often are that its inmates go back
to society, cured of all moral defection, and
competent to fill the place of correct and use
ful members of the community.
During the past summer, the magnificent
structure erected under the - supervision of
certain benevolent gentlemen of Philadelphia,
as a new House of Refuge, was completed
and thrown open for public inspection. The
capacity, order, and arrangements, in every
particular, of thiS admirable building, are
fully equal to the design of its founders. It
is an honor to them and an ornament to the
beautiful city in which it is situated ; and its
good effects in future, under the same syste
matic and wise discipline which so eminent
ly distinguished its past management, will
not be readily over-rated:
The Western House of Refuge, situate ou
the banks of the Ohio river, a short distance
below Pittsburg, I am gratified to say, is also
completed and ready for inmates. Though
less imposing, as to size and capacity, than
its stately compeer of the east, it possesses
all the order, economy of space, and perfect
adaptation to the purposes designed, that
characterize the more costly structure at
Philadelphia; and it is also believed to be
quite adequate, as to size, to present wants,
while it is built with express reference to fu,
ture additions, should they become necessa
Neither of these buildings-have, I presume,
been erected without involving their' project
tors in pecuniary liability, and perhaps loss.
The entire State has a deep interest in such
truly meritorious institutions, and whatever
relief can be given to them by the Legisla
ture, consistently with the condition of the
Treasury or onr public engagements,.should
be cheerfully extended.

Obscurity, confusion and inaccuracy in
the construction of our laws ; inroads upon
private rights, and unguarded corporate priv
ileges, litigation and confusion in the inter
pretation and administration of our statutes
have been the fruits of a loose and unguarded
system of legislation. The evil has been one
of the greatest magnitude, and the remedy
should be cherished with unyielding tenacity.
Special legislation has so little to recommend
or sustain it in principle, it is surprising it
has been so long endured. Although much
was done by the tv#preceding legislatures
by general laws, to obviate any supposed ne
cessity for special acts, there still is much to
be performed in avoiding a return to this un
safe practice. It is believed - that general
laws can be so framed as to avoid in most
cases the necessity for acts, and the proposi
tion is most earnestly commended to your
The omnibus system—a pernicious mode
of legislation, by which the most opposite
measures, goed and bad are thrown together
in one bill and under one title—was, I rejoice
to say, entirely broken down and discarded,
by the last General Assembly. The volume
of laws for 1854 contains no acts of this char
acter. Each law embraces but a single sub
ject, and that indicated by its proper title.
The 55th section of the act providing for
the expenses of Government for 1853, autho
rized and required the Governor to sell the
State arsenal at Philadelphia, and apply the
proceeds of such sale towards the purchase of
another site and the erection of a new build
ing ; and restricting the expenditure to the
sum received for the old property. The
building and lot were readily sold for $30,-
000. The selection of a new location, and
the erection of another building, presented a
far more difficult task. I readily discovered
that the sum thus appropriated was entirely
inadequate to accomplish the end in view--
The price of a similar • location would leave
but a meagre sum with which to erect the
building. Under all circumstances, I have
not felt authorized to attempt to carry out
the law, and would respectfullly suggest the
propriety of increasing the appropriation for
The report of the present able and ener
getic Adjutant General will inform you of the
conditions of the military affairs of the State.
This department of public affairs, I regret to
say, has been in a confused and declining
condition for several years.
The public Librarian has called my atten
tion to the fact, that the law reports of twen
ty-two other States have been regularly re
ceived by this, and that no provision has ever
been made on our part, to reciprocate this
courtesy and generosity. I respectfully sug
gest the propriety of authorizing some officer
of the Government to procure the necessary
copies of the Pennsylvania reports to supply
those States who have so generously added
to ow, - library.
The registration act, I respectfully suggest,
has essentially failed to accomplish the end
designed, and should be repealed or amended.
A record so incomplete and imperfect can do
no good ; but may really do harm. It has al
ready cost the State about $25,000, to which
there must be, annually additions. The ob
ject is a desirable one, but lam confident it
can never be attained by the mode contem
plated in this law. It is a subject of con
