DEMOCRAT DEVOTED TO THE DISCUSSION OF EVERYTHING RELATING TO THE PUBLIC GOOD. VOL. 3. OSHKOSII, WIS., FRIDAY, JANUARY. 23, 1852, NO. 47. GOVERNOR'S 3IESSAGE. Gentlemen of the Senate and Assembly: It is made the duty of (he Executive of this State, by ihfi "to com- nuinicnte to the Legislature, at every ses- sion, the condition of the State, and re- commend such tnnllers to their further consitic'raiioti, HS he may deem expedient.1' Having oritured upon the discharge of the duties of the office so recently as the 5th day of the pit'sent month, it will be pt-rceivtd how it will be for me to communicate the Condition of the Slate from the transactions of the past year, about which 1 cannot be expected lo have any personal knowledge; and I am only able to discharge the duty at all, by a very brief examination of the books mid papers of the Executive office, and the rr-ports recently made irom the vari- ous Departments oi State. Fiurn the very short time allotted me, for tho of this, my first mes- sage to the Legislature, I shall your indulgence, if the ration of the af- fairs of the State Government shall be It S3 genet a I and various than would oth- erwise, be usual in such and shall ftt-1 excused, under the circumstances, if such mallei; only as are of the most milked and obvious interest to the State at targe, are herein riolictd and presented. You will have before you all the repoits for the past year, which have been made by the officeis ha vino- ihu control of the financial concuns of the State, so that, by a thorough arid careful examination of ihe details, any apparent defects in the rnat ters of this communication may be cuied and supplif d. From the rrports ofthe Treasurer and Strnuiy of Stair, rurfcuitl, pusuited, ii uill be setn, that ihe fiical conceins o! the State, for the year (.ruiinu 3 1st of De- cember, not in a very condition. By reason of the uont of funds, aii.ible for such in the hands of the Ti I'i'isuier, the allowances and sprciil appropi unions made by Ihe Ijst Legislature, and the oidmary ;md ctiiient expanses of the pioviiitd by ij iv, otherwise estunaitd. have not been paid, iMtlmi the sum of 29. It appears by these reports, th.it ihe amount belonojoCT to the General Fund, received fiom 31st December, ISoO, to 31st December 1851, 675.090 '27 Amount disbursed m 18.31, 27 Amount of School Fur-d in 1851. 90 Amount disbursed same pe- riod, 41.468 OS Balance on hand, 92 Amount of School Fund in- come Ib51, 23 Amount disbursed same pe- riod, 85 Balance on hand, 42 Amount of University Fund received 1851, 30 Amount disbuised same pe- riod, 1.953 47 14 Balance on hand, 83 Amount of University In- come Fund received 1851, II Amount disbursed same, pe- riod, 00 Over paid Amount of Fund for the Blind received 1851, Amount disbutsed same pe- liod, Total amount of cash on hand belonging to the several Fundf, Expenses of the State for the Fiscal year ending th gaged in our coast or foreign while now it lies useless in our harbors and at our wharves, during a considerable por> lion ofthe year, this interest would be at once quickened into new life, and the ton- nage of our lake commerce be vastly in- creased. The channel of the St. rencc is the natural avenue ofthe foreign trade, not only ofthe great basin of ihe lakes, but of large portions of the great valley oflhe Mississippi. The success oflhe Wetland Canal and other improvements, demonstrates that the natural resources will be abundantly able so to impiove this channel of munication, that vessels of large burthen, whether propelled by sails or steam, will be able to take in their loading in Liver- pool or other foreign ports, arid discharge their cargoes in Milwaukee and other lake ports, without breaking bulk. From the proximity of cur lake ports to the navigable waters of the Mississippi, the trade of this great valley will naturally flow to these points, rather than to seek the Atlantic through the channel of tho Missisippi or the artificial communica- tions by railroad and canal hence importance of this navigation, as vessels at the mouth cf the St. Lawrence are some three thousand miles nearer En- gland, than at the mouth of the iVIississ- In this measure I cannot but think Wisconsin has a direct and vital ippi. that interrat. jects of Ihis institution, their appeal for aid from ihe State, will doubtless meel with a favorable response from the Legis- lature, In pursuance of on act of the last ses- produces the necessary amount of Gov- sion of tho Legislature, His Excellency, eminent levenue, afford adiquote protec- Gth. To so modify the present TavirT upon iioports, and adopt such a system of duties, as will, while it discriminating Governor Dewey, appointed three Cotn- missioners to locale the Stale Prison. Whereupon said Comnussioners, or a majority of proceeded to examine several localities, and located the Piison .it Waupun, in the County of Dodge. The repoit of a majority of said Commis- sioners, n.i well as ihe minoiity report cf A. W. Wrnth, Esq., the other Commis- sioner, are herewith presented, and your attention i ivited. Appreciating, as I do, the many ann! superior a j vantages of a residence, and a common interest, uith ihe people of Wis- consin, and beleiving lhat us a State, in point of foil, climate, mineral wealth, water communication, and position, as well as hiilth, means of Education, and of a rapidly increasing population of intel- ligence, iiidustry, and enterprise, we pos- sess great natural fadlties and numeious would desire to see such a State Policy adopted, as would make available ill" our resources, and means ol improvement, ami render us, to as great nn extent as possible, independent of all foreign aid. except the benefits of markets and comrt.eice. I wosld therefore advise the adoption ofthe following to this emi: measures, as conductive To Mernoralize the Congress ofthe United States to cause all the Agricuftu- ial lands within this State to be surveyed, and brought into market, at as low a price, and as speedily as practicable thereby inducing their occupancy arid cultivation, increasing the list of taxable arid lessening the burden ol tion to the agncuituiai, mechanical, and manufacturing labor of our o-vn Country. Intimately connected with our Agricultu- ral interests, and upon which their suc- cess in a great degree depends, is to hava a gond. sure, and convenient market for the staple productions of our a market fiuctualino; ancj temporary, but aa fixed and permanent, as it is possible, under any circumstances, and as the or- dinary relations of supply and drmand will allow. Such a market we do not now have out of our own Country. We sometimes have a foreign demand, when there has been an entire or partial failure of crops in some grain growing country of Euiope; but this is only occasional, and cannot be depended upon, as in the ptesent year, when the harvests abroad have been abundant. If then, we cannot expect to have such a market abroad oa we require for our produce, it becomes us to endeavor to fiind or create such an one al home and within our own country. How i hen can this great desideratum be effected? Those parls of the Country not of suitable or climate for agricul- property, taxation. 2. To cause all the State to be surveyed and geologically examined, and offered for sale thereby the set' lenient of this exten- sive region, and causing these exhausilc-ss mines of weahb to contribute to our com- mon grouth and prosperity. 3 To make liberal appropriations for the impiovement of our Rivers und Har- aors, then-by securing and extending cur trade and commerce, improving our mar- kets, and humanely protecting ihe lives and property of cur 4. To establish connection with the Department of the Interior, and Agricultural B'uieau for the encouragement of this gieat industrial interest of the country, upon which our prosperity so much depends. mral purposes, but yet possessing the cap- ital, the hydraulic power and all other means for manufacturing, sach as the New England and some other Stales, if adequate protection were afford- ed, would engage largely in this branch of industiy, and by the employment of numerous laborers of skill, such oilier manual force as would be nrccssary to conduct it, there would be created in our Country, a constant demand and cer- tain m.iiSiet, for our surplus produce, and at the fame time we would the reciprocal benefits of iheir skill, capital and trade. The tiue economy oflhe far- mer, is lo sell as much, and buy us little us he CJH and I see no reason why this is not also the wisest economy for our nation. Whenever this Country imports an ex- cess, over her exports we say the balance of trade is against us, or in other words, we are only and imnort from abroad, unless we can sell ant! fXpoit at least loan amount. at Washington, in Other Countries have long acted upon the lands m (Joing a losing business. to remedy this, is never to this plan towards us, and so long as they continue to do so urn paving a tribute to them, witlioul an tquivoieni; nnd compelled lo adopt the same plan, fur self deft-nee.
