The Governor's :Message was' delivered to
the Legislature at noon to-day,,. • , - .
He declares the doctrine of secession errone-.
oils. . The constittitien is something more than
a mere,compset. Organized resistance to the
'federal 'government irrebellion. If successful
it' may te purgsd of; the crinie by revolution;
if unsuccessful the persona . : may be executed as.
traitors. But while denying the right of a State
to. absolve its citizens from alle.ianCe to the
federal government,' neierthelesi it . is proper
that we c§refully and:Candidly; examine the
_rerisoris tilAged,. and if they are'well founded;
they sbotild.be unhesitatingly removed; and re
paration made Icir the , past and ,security fer the.
future ; for a g overnment created by the' people
'should- never doinjuslice to any Portion of, its
citizens. • Pennsylvania being included - in'the
States, alleged to havrrefused compliance with
: the fugitive slavelaw, he unhesitatingly avers
that the State' 'has been' almost "invariably in
fluenced by a high regard for the rightrof her
sister 'States.. After ' examining the present
State laws', he says there is nothing, to prevent,
the.reVival of the act of 1820, leaving. to the
claimant the .right to seek 'a remedy under the
State or ;national lavvs- He • recommends that .
the consent of thelState be given to the master
while• sojourning in, or passing through Penn
sylvania; to retain the services of the slave:—
He suggests the re-enactment of the Missouri
Compromise, and that the line be extended to
_amendment to the constitution ;
recommends the. Legislature' to instruct our
Representatives in Congress to'support such an
amendment, to be, submitted. to' the State Con
vention for ratification, and if Congress fails:to
propose it i .let it emanate froin the people. Hs .
closes by declaring that'Perinsylyania is devo
ted to the stars andstripes through'every peril.
He adds:—Bart before assurning the responsi
liilities that are foreshadowed, it is, the'enlemn
duty of. Pennsylvania to 'remove e‘iery just
cause of complaint, so that she can standbefore
high Heaven, without fear and withoUt reproach
and I then . she will be ready to devote her lives ,
and, fortunes to the beat form of goviernment.ev
er devijed by the ... Wisdom of mao. . Though a
dark cloud 'now restsrip' lhe'Union," my hopes
and affections still clin 'to it., My.prayer is,
that He who orderi : t, e destinies Of nations . ,
whari ,he'shiill . h,ave.p nished us for our situ-,

will rigain•have mercy upon, 'and bind us 'toe
