    The Sinking Origin
and EC ects.
The Keystone wishes to know what "great
measure of finance Got. Johnston has originated
and wherein consists the wisdom of his plan for
the extinguishment of the public debt."
A measure of finance which Governor Johnston
originated, which "has laid the foundations of a
system for the gradual extinguishment of the pub
lic debt, which has already accomplished the most
beneficial results," is the law creafing the Sink•
ing Fund, and appropriating the proceeds of it
sacredly to_ the payment of the Debt of the State.
This measure, which levied certain taxes slaver
before imposed upon a class of dealers and citizens
who had not been required to pay their full quota
into the State Treasury, and which set aside other
revenue to the purchase of the State Stock and
the diminution of the Debt, was recommended by
Gov. Johnston in 1849 in his first message, and
was adopted by the Legislature of that year. It
has already been the means of paying off nearly
hail a million of dollars and promises still to ad
vance in doinggood. In this we suppose the Key
gtone can see no wisdom ; but the people can.—
They think it eminently desirable to have their
burthens lightened, and they approve of the Sink
ing Fund because its design and end are to relieve
One good point gained in passing the Sinking
Fund bill was thiß—lt manifested a determina
tion on the part of the State to make an effort to
pay her debts. It proved she intended to be hon
est and showed she was willing to do something,
and not stop at words.
Again, it appropriated the revenue derived from
it to a specific purpose—from which it could not
be diverted either by the dishonesty of Locofoco
Officeholders, or the generalities of extravagant
Loco - Abe° Legislatures. If the tax had been rais
ed and put into the Treasury without a specific
direction as to itsapplication, in less than a month
after it reached the coffers of the State, it would
have been somewhere along the canals or railroad,
corrupting voters or enriching unprincipled dis
bursing officers.
Gov. Johnston and the public
The Keystone thinks the revenue system of the
State "was settled, pretty much as it is at present,
under Governor Shank." And it sneakingly in ,
timates that the payment of the State debt during
Gov. Johnston's term is about equal to that paid
by Gov. Shank, and has been brought about by
the pursuit of a State Revenue policy established
under the administration of the latter.
The Keystone knows full well this is not true,
and it has not ventured to assert it. It contents
itself with dark hints and evasive charges. We
will, however, show hint the difference between
the administration of Gov. Shenk and that of
Gov. Johnston, and it is the difference between
decreasing the demands upon the State Treasury
$148,656 in four years and reducing them $327,-
251 in two years. Will this make a difference.—
Gov. Shunk on going into office
in the winter a 1845, found the
actual public debt $40,986,393 22
When he went out of office in the
fall of 1848, the actual debt was 40,837,736 93
Amount. paid by Gov. Shank in
four years
The funded debt in 1848 was $40,474,736 93,
but during Gov. Shank's administration a canal,
motive power and railroad debt was created
amounting to $363,000, which together made up
the $40,837,736 93, and which shows that the ac
tual indebtedness of the Commonwealth was les
sened in four years the trifling sum of not quite
$150,000. A beautiful revenue policy that was,
which produced such effects ! now rapidly Gov.
Shank's administration was relieving us from our
difficulties ! The people, however, accustomed
under Locofoco rule to hear that the interest on the
debt was scarcely paid, were rejoiced to learn that
ih mar years Gov. Shank and his advisers had
succeeded in saving nearly $150,000 to be applied
to the payment of the debt itself.
But how stands it with Go, Johnston? It is
easily shown.
The funded debt of the Common.
wealth on Dec. 1, 1850, was $40,775,485 42
Amount of stocks and money in
the Sinking Fund
Actual debt Dec. 1, 1850
Actual debt Dec. 1, 1848
40,310,483 42
40,837,736 23
Amount paid by Gov. Johnston
in two years
In half the time, he has paid nearly four times
as much ns when the State was in the hands of the
opposition—the revenue system, Mr. Keystone,
being slightly different. Let the people weigh
this well and they cannot fail to sec that it is the
interest and duty of every tax payer to retain the
present able, hone. - A, and faithful Executive in
DAVIEL WrasrEn.—At ono of the religious an
niversary meetings in New York, two or three
weeks ago, the Rev. Dr. Tynge, an evangelical
clergyman, everywhere admired for his talents
and virtues, had occasion thus to remark.—" Du
ring the past year, there was one man who had
been most thoroughly abused—a man whom the
speaker had been taught to look up to and revere
from his childhood, as the personification of every
thing great, good and intellectual: and he would
say with Mr. Everett, that never since the Dec
laration of Independence have the American peo
ple been more faithfully, more honestly, more dis
interestedly served than they have been by the
immortal Webster."
