    to the surplus assets of the bank, after
payment of its debts, were protected; and
suitable prvission should be made for set
tling its affairs.
The injunction coutined in the Consti
tution, that the repeal or revocation of a
bank charter shall be in such manner as to
work no injustice to the corporators, is not
a qualification of the power to revoke, or
annul the charter; but it is simply a re.
quirement that, in taking away the char
ter, the rights of the stockholders shall be
protested, so tar as is consistent with the
act of repeal itself. Ido sot doubt that
the Legislature may alter. revoke, or annul
any existing bank charter, whenever in its
opinion tho continuance of the charter
may be injurious to the citizens of the
Commonwealth. Any other construction
of the c,nstitutional reservation, would
make the interests and safety of the pub.
lie subservent to the gain of the private
stockholder. Believing, therefore, that
there is no want of power, I cannot ref rain
from expressing my decided opinion that
whenever it is clear that a bank is insol
vent, or in great danger of becoming so,
or whenever its privileges are so used or
abused as to seriously prejudice the inter
eats of the put lie, it is the duty of the law
making power to protect the people, by
de ttroying its corporate existance.
In this conne9tion I deem it my duty to
reiterate the views expressed in my inaug:
ural address. I then stated, ns my decided
opinion, that there should be so further in.
crease of banks or banking capital under
the present system—expressed a decided
hostility to the issue of notes of a small
denomination —and recommended such a
change in our laws relative to banks, their
organization and management, as would at
least secure, beyond all question, the
prompt redemption of all bills or notes put
in circulation by the several banking in
stitutions of the Commonwealth.
Well satisfied of the imperfection of ex.
fisting laws relative to banks and banking,
I deem it a duty to inform the General
Assembly that I cannot give the executive
approval to any bills chartering additional
banks without a radical change in the en
tire system. It is but just to state that in
my opinion a large majority of the banks
of the Commonwealth are well and safely
managed; and in a perfectly sound cond
tion; but this it duo to the honesty and in.
telligence of those having charge of them,
rather than to the efficiency of the laws.
Under the management ..of incapable or
dishonest men, experience has shown, that
there is really but little. if any, security
to the public in the regulations and restric
lions now to be found in our banking code.
True wisdom dictates a reformation.
The ruinous losses which have fallen
upon the people during the financial pres
sure of the past eighteen months. suggest
the necessity of preventing their recur.
renco. Although many causes may have
combined to produce these disasters, it is
too plain to admit of doubt, that our bank
ing system has been one of the most prom_
anent. The va:ue of the precious metals
—the prices of property—and the wages
of labor—ane always affected by the abun
dance or scarcity of the paper medium re
ceived as a substitute for gold and silver
coin. The power of the States to author
ize a paper currency, through the agency
of banks, has been so long exercised, and
acknowledged throughout the Union, that
tt is no longer as open question, But it
must be acknowledged that the power has
been greatly abused. The delegation of
this attribute of sovereignty to a number
af irresponsible corporations, without prop
er checks to limit its exorcise, and without
providing any security whatever for the re
demption of the issues thus authorized,
has been attended with evils of the moat
alarming character. These corporations
are practically made the exclusive judges
of the amount of paper currency to be fur
nished to the people, and have the ex
clusive power to contract or expand their
circulation at pleasure. Depositors and
other ordinary creditors of banks, need n
legislation for their protection. Everp one
who has Mutt dealings with there insti•
uttions, dither as depositor or otherwise,
enters into such engagements. voluntarily,
for his own advantage, and may be safely
l e t to his own vigilance, and the ordinary
remedies of the law, far his protection
But the millions of people engaged in inl
duatrious persuits, the farmer—the me.
ehanic—the metchaut—and the laboring
man—are under an imperious necessity to
receive for their merchandize and their In.
bor, the ordinary paper currency of the
country. It impossible for persons of
this description to investigate the concerns
of every institution whose notes .are in cir
culation. But no investigation could save
them from the losses arising from the de
faults and frauds of bank officers and the
insolvency of bank borrowers.
The note holders of banks have pecu
liar claims to the protection of the govern
ment. they are involuntary creditors, who
are forced to receive the notes authorized
by the government, They hove no direct
dealings with the banks. They do not
trust the banks from any hope of gain.
They have no profit in passing the notes
which they would not have had in passing
gold and silver coin, They constitute al.
most the entire community, and the hum-
ble and ignorant are always the greatest
sufferers when a bank fails to redeem its
notes. The whole people . are, therefore
deeply interes,ed in the security of the cir•
cnlat•on allowed by law, although many of
them may never have had a share of bank
stock, or been within a hundred miles of
its place of business. The Government

wealth, at a value to be fixes upon, with
the power to require additional deposits
of security, from time to time, (19 the loans
depreciate in the market, would be as safe
ana available as any guaranty which could
be provided.
A law requiring all issues of banks here
after organized, to be secured by the pledge
of these loses, would enchance the value
of the present loans, and thus give the hol
ders a premium not contemplated when
they became purchasers, and for which
they never ga , e any valuable contideration
This enchanced value would be derived
from a privilege granted by the State, and
and the State ought, therefore, to have the
benefit of it, as far as this may be secured
by legislation. The recent amendment to
the Constitution circumscribes the power
of the Legislation in creating State debts,
with an exception in favor of oebts contrac
tad "to redeem the present outstanding in•
debtedness of the State." A law authori
zing new State loans for the purpose of re
deeming the present over due debt, would
within the con stitutional exception, end
would be free from objection on constitu.
tional grounds.
The new loans, thus authorised, rederna
lile at the expiration of twenty years, with
the banking priviledge attached to them'
would undoubtedly sell at a high premium.
The. proceeds of the sale should be applied
to the payment of the present State d :bt,
now overdue, amounting to more than
seventeen milloins of dollars. Under this
system the State loans would no longer be
held by foreigners, and the semiannual
shipments of special to pay interest, would
therefore cease.
As the currency would be limited to the
amount actually secured, the danger from
expansions, which have heretofore stimu•
lated the incautious to imbark in ruinous
enterprises, in overtrading. and in extrav
agance in th-ir expenditures, would be
greatly lessened, if not entirely overcome.
As are securities would be in the hands
of a high and responsible officer of the
State„ with authority to sell them for the
purpose of redeeming the circulation, the
power of banks to arrest specie payment,
at their own pleasure, would be at an end.
The system proposed is as near an up
proach to a specie basis as the condition'
and habits of the people are at present
prepared for. The duty of securing the
community from losses continually arising
from an unsafe currency, cannot be longer
delayed, without a manifest disregard of
the public interests. The subject is there.

The report of the commissioners appoin
to contract for and superintemithe exec
tion of a monument to the memory of the
citizens of Pennsylvania, who were slain'
or lost their litres in the late war with Mex.
ico, will inform the Legislature of the pro.
ceedings had on that subject. After re•
ceiving proposals for the erection of the
monument, and the adoption of a plan, it
was determined. in view of the limited
and inadequate appropriation made for the
accomplishment of the purpose, by the last
Legislature, to pxitpone the commence.
meat of the work until further legislation
could be had. It is the opinion of the
commissionsrs that such a monument r as
would do credit to the State, and honor to
to the living and the dead, cannot be built
for a less sum than thirty thousand dollars.
If the. Legislature should ;concur in
that opinion, the apptopriation should be
increased accordingly.
The report of the State Librarian will in
form you of the progress made in the cat•
alogue authorized by the last Legislature,
and the general condition of the Library,
which has grown to be an institution that
deserves your fostering care, I would
commend to your attention the suggestions
of the Librarian.
The report of the Attorney General,
which will be laid before you, will exhibit
the operations of the Law Department of
the government, for the past year. -.The
act of the 21st of April, 1857' which re
quires the Attorney General to keep an
office at Harrisburg, and which provides
that all debts due to the Commonwealth,
shall be collected by that officer, has prov
ed to be a highly beneficial enactment.
Under its provisions large sums are saved,
which were formerly paid for commissions
and consul fees. And the improved state
of our finances is in no inconsiderable de
gree owing to the prompt manner is which
outstanding claims are collected and paid „
into the State Treasury.
The Adjutant General's report, which
will be laid before you, will show in detail
the present condition of the Military De
partment. I would respectfully call the
the attention of the Legislature to the re•
commendations of that officer.
The Intlain law of 1858, has net been
fully tested; but it is believed to be, in the
main, an improvement on the laws in force
nt the time of its passage. One of its best
features, and one that should be strictly en.
forced, is that the system is self-supporting.
I u no contingency should that department
be a charge upon the public Treasury, in
time of peace,
In referring the attention of the Lops
latnre to the elaborate reports of the Au.
ditor General and State Treasurer, relating
to the bounces of the State, which will be
laid before you, I cannot refrain from giv
ing expression to my views on the impor•
tance of a change in this mode. of keeping
and disbursing the public moneys.
The State Treasurer receives and dis
burses between four and five millions of
dollars annually ; and it not unfrequently
happens that there is a ballance in the
Treasury exceeding one million of dollars.
The bond of the Treasurer is not eighty
thousand dollars. He deposits the money
of the Stare whenever he pleases, and it
Is paid exclusively on his check. Th e
monthly settlements with the Auditor Gen
eral afford some security that the funds of
the Commonwealth will not be misapplied;
but it is entirely inadequate to the complete
protection of the public interests.
Until the State shall adopt a different
system for tho collection, safe keeping and
disbursements:of her revenues, the money
on hand must be kept either in the Treas.
ury vault or deposited with the banking in•
stitutions in the State. For many years
the letter mode has been adopted. I re•
spectfully recommend that provision be
made by law that no money shall be depos.

without requiring security to be first given

character, however praiseworthy the ob
jects and rno.ives of their founders and
supporters, or however useful they may
lie to their particular localities.
The present condition of the revenues
of the General Government, demonstrates
the urgent necessity of increased duties
upon foreign importations. The people of
Pennsylvania have ever taken a lively in
terest in the proper adjustment of a tarill;,
end they have, with singular unanimity,
at all times, favored.such an assesinent of
duties, as would not only produce revenue
but furnish the largest incidental prote - nun
to the great mineral, manufacturii g, nod
industrial interests of the country. If ol
their voice hitherto been more potential in
the co:mails of the nation, it is no longer
problematical that much of the pecuniary
distress, lately experienced by all classes
and conditions of the business men, inight
have been to a great extent'averted, The
necessities of the government and the poop
le, now, alike, demand a change—an in
crease of duties—and I take great pleasure
in endorsing the views of the President of
the United States as expressed in his last
annual message, relative to the change pro
posed. His advocacy of the specific du
ties on all "commodities which are usually
sold by weight, or by measure, and which
from their nature are of equal value,—such
as iron, of different classes, raw sugar, and
foreign and spirits." has met with a hear
ty response from the great body of the peo
ple of this State. It is to be hoped that
his views on.this question will 'oe favora
bly regarded by Congress, and that the ac
tion of the Federal Government may cor
respond with the suggestions of the Presi
When I was called upon to assume the
gubernatorial chair, nearly one year ago,
in deference to public opinion, and toy own
feelings. after a rapid review of events in
Kansas, I stated, that "to the people of
Pennsylvania the admission of a new State
into the Union—into that Confeederacy of
which she is a member—must be at all
times a subject of high interest. And I
believe I express their sentiments, as well
us my own, in declaring that all the quali•
lied electors of a 'Fenner, should have a
full and fair opportunity to participate in
selecting delegates to form a Constitution
preparatory to admission as u State, and if
desired by them, they should also be allow
ed at unqualified right to vote upon such
Constitution after it is rraEued."
Subsequent event have confirmed me in
these sentiments. The deplorable disputes
in the first session d the present Congress
—the popttlar excitement resulting from
those disputes, tardier with other pro
eroding, in their nature novel nod alarming
would all have bees averted, had the peo
ple beer secured in "the unqualified right"
to vote upon their iomestic institutions. I
regret to be compelled to say, that, unties
various pretences, this sacred franeltise
has been virtually withheld from them.—
When they refused to accept the Lecomp.
ton Constitution, uncle for them by dele
gates representing Cie minority, they were
explicitly denied the privilege of making
their own Constitution, unless upon a con
dition not previously exacted. If they sic:
cepted the Lecompton Constitution, they
entered the sisterhood of States at once,
with a population less than one half of the
existing ratio of Congressional represen
tation; but, if they refused that Constitu-
tion, they could not be admitted into the
Union, with the Constitution of their choice
until they were ready to show, by n formal
census, that they had attained a population
equal to that ratio. The results have be
come historical.
The last expressive vote of the people
of Kansas against the act of Congress,
commonly known as the English bill, has
foi a time arrested Congressional interven
tion. Peace has resulted alone from the
votes of the people, not front the sugges
tions of outside influences. But, during
, the angry feeling which this controversy
hes aroused, the theory has been started,
and insisted upon. that it will hencefor
ward be the . duty of Congress to protect
slavery in the Territories, it the people of
the territories shall foil to do so. The war
rant for this extraordinary assumption is
alleged to exist in the decision of the Su
preme Court of the United States, in the
case of Dred Scott. Entertaining, no I
do, profound reverence for the decisions of
that august tribunal, and standing ready to
obey them, whenever they are enunciated,
I have yet to be convinced that any such
construction can be fairly given to-their
action in the case referred to. Such a doe
trine, no matter how sanctioned, or sup•
ported, will shake the very pillars of our
constitutional fabric. It would compel
ery territory to elevate property in slaves
above every other description of property
—and to establish a slave code in its early
municipal regulation ; or else it would con.
vert the Congress into a theatre of mini
nation end confusion, and fill the whole
country with strife And all this, without
securing a stogie advantage to the North,
or protecting a single right of the South.
Icegarding myself no fully committed to
the doctrine of po, , ular sovereignty it, its
broadett sense, I can never subscribe to
the theory of Congressional intervention,
as understood by the opponents of this doc.
trine. By popular sovereignty, I mean
no violation of the rights of the States—
no assault upon the institutions of the
south—no appeal to sectional prejudices.
Or, the contrary, I regard the doctrine as
the embodiment of the popular twill in
States and Territories, as the conservator
of the rights .and the equality of States
and people—and no the only means by
which a vexed and dangerous agitation wil,
be astisfactorily and perpetually "settled.
A theory equally heretical has been ad.
winced in another portion of the Union.—
It has been held that this government divt•
dell into free and slave States, us it was
framed by our Revolutionary Father; min-
endure—that all must become free, or all
become slave.
