It is at this Ticino diminishing in Val due yet i by Ilievs that in two or thine years hence we will have an in the by i to Ato value in increase of property at that time taxable in the state but i think greatly below the anticipations of Trany of Tho Bilbo eats of the cause. Now 1 ask is it Point ibo to carry on All Tho works of internal improve no it at the same time Lias the state any adequate Meuwis of paying thu inc rest on the state Bonds Tor solar of a Sura in arrowed As$21,836,632, without any prot ii from tiny of the works till All a re finished All must answer no it cannot have. Thic a i iii will being ruin and bankruptcy on the a late i by works will have to to abandoned without Anishin them and the Money lost that has let eco expended on them. Our children will to involved in a debt Eliut will stick to a lion like an in Cubav and Bear them Down in Overty. And All this will be occasioned by the prudence of their tithers. But notwithstanding this Drak picture of a Sinius Lanaous working on All the works till All Are Fini Bedel Bel Uvo the whole May be completed at no very Distant Day by using prudence in Man Agen enl Economy ii expenditures by re trenching Ivory tio necessary of government and of ficere in teen Rita and Nui Bors. By gather aug together every item thai we can and adding it to the surplus Revenue that is now in Deposit with the glance that is to to de kit site a next january Tuther with the profits of the Stock of the state Ink Tod the in Durost on the canal lands for a a inking akm a Quot Gay interest annually on the Tom Lortt too Oil most of which is borrowed in Tim Ballanco to be burrowed this sum Oier. Of a filing a finding fund to liquidate the interest mob 0rvt $6,000,000 borrowed suspend All the Vronka except Tho Hariu canal and some other work pm very costly that would most probably make a go return of profits say thu Whitewater canal or Vincennes Turnpike borrow about 8�,000,000 which would probably finish the Wabash and Erie canal and one of the others. The interest on the state Bonds for that sum borrowed would be $75,000, the tax to pay this interest would be about lt4 cents to Tho f 100. A soon As these two improve menu Are finished take up a third one. Say the mad Iron and Lafayette rail Road turn it into a Mcadam Zed Turnpike and Complete it from Madison to Indianapolis omitting that part of the Road from Indianapolis to layfayette to a future time. Apply All the profits of the two finished works to finishing the third. When that is done take up a fourth work say the Jefter Sonville and Crawfordsville Turnpike. The great length of this Road leading through some of the most populous counties in the state to one the most commercial marts in the Western country could not fail of producing a hanckiome4>rofit, from the great amount Ouwo Conage and travelling done on it when finished. Then take up a Fiah work apply All the profit of the four finished works to finishing Tho Fiat. When that is done Tako up a sixth work apply the proceeds of All the finished works to that until it is completed. Then take up another and but one at a time until Tho whole number is gone through still applying All Tho profits of he finished works to the one undertaken till All Are completed. I can see no practicable plan without burdening the people with taxation but by adopting this gradual Mode of proceeding with our improvements. Let us borrow $3 or 4,-000,000 and i believe this amount will to amply sufficient if judiciously managed to finish three or four of the works. If they turn out to be As productive As works in the East of the same class they will furnish a fund sufficient to pay the interest on the a Cal Loans and the profits of the works As they Progress will of themselves carry on Iho works without additional taxation. Tho interest on $8,0�0,000 would be $150,000 the rate of which on Tho $100 would be 18 3-8 and the interest on 4,000,000 dollars would to 200,000 and the rate of tax on this would be 24 cents to the $100. In the prosecution of these works it would be to Lay Over till the last All Tho works brought to any navigable Woter Couise such As Tho following the continuation of the Waltash and Krie canal the continuation of the Central canal no further than from its Junction with the Erie canal to Indianapolis Orther Cults Northern and Rossl it canals. That part of the Madison and Lafayette Road below ii Indianapolis and , aught also to lie Over till the last As All of those ire Cumi lenient to navigable streams. Ii is now my sincere opinion that our works May to completed Wilh a lax of 18 or 25 cents on the Liu Midred dollars and this lax Nood not continue Long on Tho people if the works prove to be profit Ablo. If the profits should not pay the interest on Shonio Tipy on them and a a pay for repairs Hoy would to worse than useless and a if by to in abandoned or at least us Pei ded until our county Boc Oines Moro populous and halt a More est Rosivel Cohun Erco. I have now ventured to give my opinion respecting our works for Good or for evil. 1 have no moans in my Power at this Lime of making any accurate calculations Aslo the future. J in citizens of this county aught to meet Al Bloon Ringlon on some Futini Mcday say the 2lat inst and interchange opinions freely and adopt some Yuhle of action in Harmony with the general interests of the stale. And Fourcand idles Donol acquiesce in our opinions we should Tako up and elect one who will. At present we stand a Ion a precipice and it is the duly of nervy Man to to up and doing i believe Wilh a Nadif Calion of the works and prudence amp Economy in management we can Complete Ull our works without serious injury Loany and pious men he Reader will thank their Lod that he has brought Good out of evil and wrought a work in our land marvelous in cur eyes. s mitc Isikli persists in mowing his Twenty or forty acres and keeping his Stock on Bay when fire or six of those same acres would furnish roots sub client if mixed with the Straw which might be grown on the remainder to keep his animals far better than the Hay and leave the Grain crop nearly la a Clear in fit is clearly acting against his True interests. Again we say to our Farmers you did Well last year by so extensively entering upon the culture of roots you will do better this year by greatly extending their Farmer. Fam the National important official papers. Roots vice Sims h.4y. We Lake the following from a re it Ort made to the Massachusetts agricultural society by the messes. Colin of Pittsfield Berkshire county and to do it to show the immense advantage made in substituting roots for Hay in feeding cattle As Well As in the Quantity of ground necessary to produce a Given Quantity of focal. The writer says Quot my Stock now consists of 1000 Sheen 0 Young oxen 6&Quot cows a a Lair of horses and a single horse. I have raised this season Cor the use of my Slock 55m bushels of vegetables and All to be grated and fed out with Cut Straw the cat lie constantly the sheep one feed a Day which seems to be a necessary fix i in our Long cold win lers it keeps them in health and also in Blokh. As to Tho respective value of vegetable food the follow ing statement will or haps besi exhibit it. I have commenced feeding and shall continue to feed a 14 head of horned cattle with to lbs. Of Cut Straw each or Day 4 cents for each Twenty lbs. 66 cents also to each is lbs. Of roots grated mixed with Straw 3 cents 42 cents. And now allow 160 Days for the season of feeding at 98 cents is $147,00. The same Slock would require 20 lbs. Of Hay each per Day for fio Days they would consume 42,000 him. Equal to 21 tons at the moderate Price Ottlo or ton $210,00. Balance in favor of Root feed 69 dollars and 1 am sure the Stock will appear far bettor at the opening of the Spring. Lou will perceive that the value of a Taupe for food is six cents a Bushel while Bay is at Teo and Straw at four. It May by said that there is some Cost in preparing and but this is More than compensated if properly done by the extra Quantity of manure thus it appears that 20 lbs. Of Straw and 8 Ibe. Of roots mixed of lord More Nutriment and of Youree Are Moro valuable than 20 Ibe. Of Good Hay while the actual Cost is much less. Fourteen or i Teea Tona of roots Are a moderate crop per acre while the average of i will fall considerably below two tons per acre be advantage in favor of the turnip is thus perfectly apparent and the former who the following message from the president of the United ates was communicated to the House of representatives on wednes Ilay last Hitke hot of of the United states i transmit in compliance with a Resolution of the House of of the Lith instant re ports from the Sucre Taitts of state Treasury and via with the documents referred to by them respectively.

The following report from the secretory of Var however is of but Lucient consequence to to separated from the rest for Poblic culion of Wah a link 10, 1838. Sin a in relation to so much of the of he House of representatives of the Lith instant is has by your direction been referred to this do Parturient i have the Honor to slate Thot on the re Cei t of intelligence of the destruction of the British Steamer sir Robert Peel orders were immediately iss Ikhi to the commanding officer at fort Niagara to detach a position of his Force to Sackett Sharbor and shortly after the Dis usable recruits at new York it fort Monroe Wero ordered part to strengthen that Post part to Plattsburg and part to Swan ton on the Vermont Frontier at the same Lime measures were taken to employ a Steamer to be manned Wilh a competent military Force for police Putiri hoses on each of the lakes Krie and Ontario.

Macomb was despatched to Sackett Sharbor to Lake the command of the forces on the Northern Frontier with instruction to take prompt and vigorous measures to maintain our treaty stipulations and to execute Hift Laws of the United slates and especially to lobe no time in directing operations against the Law less men who for the avowed purpose of committing depredations upon the territory of a Friendly Power have stationed themselves on the lands in the River St. Lawrence. The general has been since advised to station a guard of regulars at each of the ferries on the River and at each kit it of engr it on the lakes in order to proc set the it persons and property of the subjects of her Britannic majesty from any further outrage and there is reason to believe from Ibe character and Well earned Reuia of that of seer that he will carry these instruct Iyoub into of loot to the extent the limited Force under his command will permit with promptness and ener the regular forces in Thesee ologies and in the Canada making an aggregate regular Force of be tween fifteen and sixteen thou said men.

The accompanying extracts of hatters received from his excellency the governor of new York contain such i airman too As has been received by this depart Neul on the sul Jact of the recent disturbances on the Northern i Meiier. Death of Talu Ottamn breathed his last on the 17ih May in his 84th year. He had for Soini Limo written and addressed to the Pope a retraction of his conduct it the Etmo Liamore irony of the be demotion Wiere lie forgot his episcopal ordination and condescended to bless that democratic and somewhat Heathen ceremony. He received absolution extreme unction and died in the a a Cerf the Catholic Church although the archbishop of Paris to whom the Prince had sent a copy of his letter to the Pope kept aloof from his bedside. King Louis Philippe however visited the deathbed of the Veteran Salesman whose respect for etiquette ail courtly ideas was Manifest even in his dying moments. He on presenting to the King ii who happened to be with him and had not that ceremony and he acknowledged the Kings visit not As Tho act of warm and private Friendship but As Quot a great Honor done to his Bouse. Madame Adelaide sister of the King also visited the Prince. Messes. Thiers and mole also attended his last Chrome la.
