Relative value or English and american coi Naea. The Secretary of the Treasury states that in accordance with the authority vested in him by the last Congress to provide for ascertaining the relative value of the coinage of the United states and great Britain and fixing the relative value of the unitary coins of the two countries he appointed professor j. H. Alexander of Baltimore commissioner to Conler with tha proper function Arins in great Britain in relation to some plan or plans of so mutually arranging on the Decimal basis the coinage of the Tiro countries As that the respective units shall hereafter be easily and exactly commensurable. Fromet Sor Alexander is now in London and it in expected the result of Bis Mission will be embodied in a statement and report from him at an Early Day which will he Laid before Congress As soon As received. Gov. Wibb on fan no goes gov. Wise has issued Bis annual message to the legislature of Virginia and As was to be expected it is a Good Deal longer than the Long winded message of president Buchanan. He dwells at length upon the free negroes of Virginia their condition and the legislation needed respecting them. We quote but what is to be done with them is the question and it is difficult to Settle it justly and to our satisfaction. Several modes have been proposed. One is to Bend them in one exodus out of the slate to the non slave holding states of the onion. I doubt both the policy and Ahe Justice of his plan its reason assigned is in a vindictive spirit to teach abolitionists better How to appreciate the nature of the negro. But that spirit always Blind is Apt to mistake m this and the result would be rather to make so Many missionaries among the foes to our institutions and to our people to Harden them against us rather than to convert them in our favor. Besides they would on this plan have to be seat North to a climate not suited to their habits or natures and it would be harsh thus to subject them to a wholesale dispersion disease and extinction. Such is their Fate in Iree states and in cold climates. They Are not fit for Freedom or Frost unless they Are among friends who will provide Lor them and slaveholders at last Are the Best friends to the african race and their climate and location Are most kindly to their natures and habits it would be. More humane and More just to them to take from them their Liberty at once and sell them wholesale into slavery without their consent. But the moral sense of our people would revolt at a violation of individual and personal rights like this and no such usurpation would by tolerated by Public sentiment. What then ii they ought not to be sent North to free states and the tender mercies of fanatics and Frost nor to the South and slavery ? the answer is that we ought to colonize As Many As we can to Liberia to Lake Back under masters As Many As Are willing to re turn to the patriarchal Protection of slavery to encourage the virtuous and industrious among them by seeing that they Are compelled to learn valuable trades and arts and to Reform our penal code so As to punish Cap itally certain of their higher offences to punish their secondary offences with solitary imprisonment and to condemn the minor offenders and the idl to labor on the Public works. A code of discipline would soon rid us of All the vicious and dissolute and retain to us the trustworthy the virtuous and Cost or polio bin lines in Washington.

There has been no increase on this estimate another appropriation of $245,000 will Complete the work hut there in Money enough on hand Tor the next fiscal year and no further appropriation is asked for at present.

Valeu Coit address of Oev of show citizens my duties As chief magistrate of Texas have ceased and i surrender the office to one whose conservative course during a ser vice in the legislature and As lieutenant governor has recommended him to the Confidence of Bia fellow citizens. His administration comme cues under auspicious circumstances and 1 Trust that its Progress and termination will be honorable to himself and acceptable to the people of the state. During the term that i have bad the Honor to fill the office of governor Many difficult and vexed questions of Public policy have been disposed of among them the settlement of our a evolutionary debt was the most important. It had for years engaged the attention and occupied a Large Portio of the time of the legislature and yet seemed to be no nearer a final settlement than at the period of annexation. Delay Only complicated the question still further and left it to the action of those who not having participated in the scenes out of which it grew could not feel the same Obi cations to see it justly arranged As the generation by which it waa contracted. I was familiar with the nature and origin of that debt and with All the difficulties in the Way of its settlement. While there were Many and Strong objections to the act of Congress by which the United states proposed to pay it i Felt that it would be a less evil to accept it than to leave the question open and thereby Embarrass on Legie Lantre and retard the Progress of All plans for internal improvements these convictions induced me to recommend its acceptance though apparently in violation of the Public sentiment of state As expressed by the partial vote of the 1 eople in regard to it. Now that the subject has been disposed of and the effect of its payment upon the reputation and credit of the state abroad and its Prosperity at Home has been seen and appreciated by on citizens 1 am hat by to believe that few could be found who would Rama the act. It was my Fortune frequently to differ with your predecessors in regard to the merits of Laws which they bad passed. On snob occasions 1 did not hesitate to exercise the veto Power and with few exceptions my action was sustained by them when they came to re consider the question. My con Rye in this regard objected me to censure from Many who seemed to think that the veto should Only he used to arrest the Progress of measures that Are re Png Nanfito the Constitution. That instrument however imposes no Buch limitation upon its exercise and an executive who would avoid the responsibility of making use of it to arrest what he deemed improper and unwise acts of legislation would be As faithless to Bis Trust As the representative would be who might shrink from recording his vote against them. I do not propose to review All the measures of the government in which i hate borne a part but there Are so Roo whose influence will is As lasting As the government itself i refer to the creation of the school fund the establishment and endowment of a Lunatic any us and institutions for the do Tion of the Blind and the deaf and dumb. It will Ever be a source of gratification that i aided in the adoption of these measures and if nothing else had been done during my official term ther rough All its vices Tindes and trials and Contr buted to the formation of its institutions and its Laws i cherish for it no Ordinary attachment and Hal never cease to feel the most ardent Fry its Wel Are.

About to enter upon the discharge of the High and responsible duties which will now devolve on me As chief executive officer 0 the state custom requires that i should make use of this occasion to return the most sincere acknowledgements of grateful heart Lor the Confidence reposed in me by my Lellow citizens. Conscious of the responsibility and aware of the onerous task it will impose it is not without emotions of True embarrassment and apprehensions of difficulty that i shall enter on their discharge. Indeed when these considerations pre sent themselves enhanced by a knowledge of the diversity of opinion incident to the population of most newly settled countries of be conflict of in Teres which May be expected to arise Between Dif Lerent localities and divisions of the state i May scarce Hope to meet that Ordinary share of Public approbation which has been awarded to my predecessors and could Well wish 1 hat. N charge of so great importance to the insure interest and Well being of the country had been confided to Abler and More experienced hands. In the Ordinary course of events it May not have been expected that one with aspirations so Humble As. My own would Ever have been called to a station of such High Honor and Trust. It is a circumstance which should inspire with Hope and encouragement the humblest who bows in sincerity and truth at the shrine of patriotism and duty in the illustration it furnishes of the character and Genius of that govern Neni with which the american peo pie Are blessed the truth of which has been so of leu exemplified in the Workings of its system that Honor Slid promotions Are not the prerogative of rank Sih Tion or High degree. As a of the people my first and greatest aim has Evet been a just reflection of the sentiments of the with whom Ray Fortune have been cast their interests Tiave been my interests linked together by one Desriv and both alike inseparably connected with the prof purity happiness and welfare of the entire state. As i am not conscious of having indulged Auy motive inconsistent with their a prime Nance in times that have passed i sup y Iii have no other Nof. If it has been from such an apprehension of my fellow citizens that i a n indebted for my present position i have Only to assure them hat no Elf Ort shall be spared to promote the Best interests of the country and however much i May distrust my own ability but i shall shrink from no responsibility which attaches to my position the recent political contest through which this state has passed forbids my passing it by without a notice. Early in May last the democratic party met in convention at Waco and according to Long established usage adopted its platform and presented nominees Tor the different offices to be filled at the ensuing election in August the principles set Forth were those of the National convention at Cimic Innabi in 1856, and in substance the same As those under which the democratic part made its Host Advent to Power with their great author or. Jefff in at its head with the single exception of the doctrine of non intervention As incorporated in the Kansas Bill. The news of the action at Waco had scarce transpired when the name of a citizen prominent in the Rol s of his country s Fame wag Auno iced in opposition and a canvass actually begun the most remarkable perhaps in the an nals of political warfare. The celerity of the movement the electric rapidity with which its Intelli gence was communicated and the alacrity with which it was endorsed by the entire opposition furnish the most indubitable evidence of the pre concerted design to distract and if possible to is Troy the identity of the democratic party. Happily the Effort failed and it must be Gratifying to All sympathizing with the party from a Devotion to principle that Victory should have perched on its Banner under circumstances so Well calculated to destroy unanimity and Confidence. The result affords Lull and ample Assurance of the enduring affection of the great body of our fellow citizens to the principles of civil religious and constitutional Liberty since the first defeat of ancient federalism it has been the practice of our opponents at different intervals to disguise themselves with new names and promulgate new platforms of principles. The last assumed has surely excited a greater share of deserved ridicule while the principles have been More dangerous than All that have preceded it this fact is evident in the proof of their voluntary abandonment. I would gladly if i could injustice to the occasion avoid an allusion to the questions growing out of the institution of slavery which is now made to act to conspicuous a part in the poli tics of the nation. Silence however might be misconstrued. The first great Issue on this subject arose on the introduction of Missouri into the Union in 1s20, when the restriction of 86 0 so was applied to her ten itchy and the slave Holder prohibited from the right of joint occupation North of that line with Bis property. Although this line was not originally intended to extend beyond the limits of the territory of Louisiana on the annexation of Tex is the principle was applied to it North of that line and acquiesced in by the South. But when after tote acquisition of additional territory by virtue of the treaty with Mexico it was again proposed in the formation of a territorial government for Oregon the binding Efficacy of the principle was denied and hence the series of enactments known As the Compromise measures of 1850. By that legislation Cali Ionuia was admitted into the Union a St be regardless of All the forms of Law under a Constitution which forever excluded the sont Harn slave Holder. Next in the series oame the act creating the territorial governments of Utah and new Mexico. In thebe territories which comprised the remainder of the territory acquired from Mexico and also that of Texas by virtue of annexation and cession of Boundary the principle of non intervention As a measure of Compromise was expressly recognised and enunciated As the future policy of the government touching legislation in the territories. Under the soothing influence of that legislation it might have been expected that agitation on the dangerous subject involved would cease and the controversy be forever Pue at rest. But not so for notwithstanding that a Large portion of Tfaye territory compromised in these Bills was subject to the restriction Underjfr-1 Artillea of annexation when it waa pro efforts a were preaching and sending for of their population or drench her Plains with s f Southern sympathisers and b greatly to be feared that the have been Bot too Uelee Sybl. Paint As it must be to every True hearted 8outharer,it is not to be denied that if abolition propaganda pm has suede Ededine Kansas it is not alone attributable to the Lawless armed bands who have marauder the territory nor yet to military organizations headed by renegades and desperate adventurers acting in open hostility to All Federal and territorial authority but it Isnow ing first to to of tic one who have in Plain Tive notes bewailed the repeal of thevis Zouri com Promise and thus Given Aid and Comfort to Tfaye enemy and More recently to the. Course of Robert j. Walker governor of that territory that so deplorable a result is mainly chargeable. Instead of exercising the authority with which be waa vested to ensure the faithful administration of the Law he has been engaged in the miserable attempt of conciliating Public offenders by concessions and compromises utterly inconsistent with the Priboi pie of non intervention incorporated in the organic act a portion of which is in terms As follows " it being the True intent and meaning of this act not to legislate slavery into any territory nor to exclude it therefrom hut to leave the people thereof per Eltiy free n form and regulate their institutions in their own Way in object Only to the provisions of the Consitt Tiou of the United the principles of the act can afford no so Fri y to the people of the slave holding states unless it provisions Are to be respected by the agents of the executive As Well As the legislative department of the government gov. Walker seems not to have so regarded it. Or if so be has violated the High Trust confided to is keeping. For immediately on his arrival in the territory he commenced a system of in termed doing intended and Folly calculated to interfere with the Juat expression of the Legal voters of the territory in dictating the terms on which it could be admitted into the Union and in declaring that if the Constitution was not submitted to the whole people including it is to be presumed those tainted with the High crimes of rebellion Ami treason he would Aid in having it rejected by Congress although the right to determine such a proposition belonged alone to he convention chosen y the Legal voters 01 the territory again in attempting to or scribe the qualification of voters in contravention of the positive Law of the territory he is believed to have been guilty fan usurpation without parallel or example in the history of free governments. It now re Mivins to be sen what shall be the contents of the c Apte thatis to a How in recording the history of a question which has thrice brought the government to the verge of dissolution. The present and future interests of Texas Are deeply interwoven with Theisson come when it May. Be it what it will. As a member of the confederacy of states. Texas possesses a common interest in main Taining the Force of tie compact which binds it together 8" Long us the administration of its conditions continue to secure the objects for which the compact was intended but no longer there is no proposition clearer than that the obligation of parties to a compact ceases when the instrument has been broken and violated. Becent decisions of the highest tribunal in the land Bave defined and established that construction of the Constitution for which the South contends. She should be Content with no less than its Observance in future. Nor in the fullness of our Joy at the Gratifying evidences which Freet us of an increasing conservatism at the North should we be unmindful of the fact that he who is not for us. Will probably be against us and that More two thirds of the non slave holding state yet Refuio Aho Liti nosed. Year by year the South is hew Niue weaker the North growing stronger. That equilibrium has been destroyed which afforded the Only sure and permanent guar Antee of Protection against a volition innovation. Of the argument Lias not he nex austed it has be come powerless and impotent from the lips of South Ern men. For the future to the North must be left the management and control of a question which involves Union or dissolution peace or War. In View of these facts it hero ves us earnestly and calmly 10 look Forward to the impending , for the problem May soon be solved of the adequacy of constitutional restrictions and " paper guaranties to interpose sufficient barriers to the lust of in p2�rr-=Sive and dominant so Rioual majority. Should this proposition in decided in the negative i do not hesitate to believe that the determination of Texas will be taken to assume the guardianship of her own destinies and bid Adieu to a connection no looser consistent with the rights dignity and Honor of an equal and Independent state. A for while disruption would be a great calamity it is not in the language of or. Jefferson the greatest that could befall us there remains one yet greater submission to a government of unlimited Umler these apprehensions prudence would dictate that our House should be set in order and due preparation made for the crisis that seems to be foreshadowed by coming events this should be done not for offence but for defence Only. No reasonable Effort should be spared to secure that thorough Mil itary organization and training indispensable to the lib enies of every free state As auxiliary to this a Liberal course of policy should be pursued to ensure the organization of Volunteer companies in Prussidg Forward to an Early completion the w irks of internal improvement indispensable to the wants of Commerce and agriculture and again in disseminating information among the masses through the medium of on systems of education. These Are All important in constituting our people prosperous Happy and Independent. There is now left but one reasonable Hope for preserving the Union and maintaining the rights of the states in it and that is upon a rigid adherence to a strict construction of the Federal Constitution. Our opponents preach hostility to our institutions from every Quarter alike from the pulpit As the hustings. With hut a single exception and for the first tithe Southern states have marched in line Ano congregate upon the plat form of the Constitution there to fish by the Battle for their rights under it that plat Tom is the Sai in new England a8 in Texas its adherents there though overwhelmed by numbers Are standing firmly to the doctrines it teaches. It us by our own thorough organization offer them Assurance of our warmest sympathy and cordial cooperation in support of the glorious cause it is their Mission to follow. That cause commends itself to our con Lence because amid the Vicissitudes and Bangas of half a Century it presents the Only record unblemished by mutation and change. If Wenk Enod by defections time has invariably " recovered for it More than its lost strength " if Occa ional departures from the doctrine of strict construction have occurred truth and investigation have As invariably com batted the error and established it still More firmly in the minds of the american people As the Only True and reliable exponent of our institutions. The tempests of passion and fanaticism have is sailed it hitherto with no other effect than to remove the rubbish with which it was encumbered and exhibit More clearly the patriotism and virtue of those who remain faithful tits cause. It is at that altar alone that the Man of the South discovers the Arcana o of his present and future Security and the. Re alone that patriotism can take her Humble abode hoping to perpetuate a constitutional government and pre serve to futurity those Model institutions alike the purest the greatest and Oest that have Ever entered into the Conception of Man. H. R. Runnels. Inaugural address of it . Senators representatives Lou my country women and country Mem called by the voice of my fellow citizens to As sume a position connected with the government of the state and having taken the oath prescribed by the Constitution i am Here in accordance with expectation an expectation created by custom to address you. As the presiding officer of the Senate my duties Are few and of a character to exercise but Little ii fluence upon Public affairs but to the these duties i bring a desire to act Fuji Lully and impartially. Inexperienced in legislative duty i i am conscious of the need of forbearance and cooperation on the part of the Urand body Over whom i am called to preside. With their Aid and Assis Tance i do not fear but that i shall be Abl to preserve the order of the Senate and Facil Tau its business with dispatch and accuracy. It would be improper in me to Volunteer my opinions upon measures of Public policy likey to come before the legislature for its determination but i May be permitted to cons Attiste you a Pon the Prosperity of the state and the rapid Devebre ment of its internal resources now going on. It is True a propitious seasons have some that shortened the abundant harvests that usual Reward the labors of the Husbandman who tills our Fertile soil yet we have much to be thankful for in our comparative Freedom from the financial embarrassments that weigh so heavily upon the various interests of our sister states. Our population is rapidly increasing and our unoccupied Domain fast settling with industrious and Hardy Enid grits who annually swell the amount of our agricultural products thus Lor Midg a solid and Safe basis for the Extension of our Commerce. When to these Evi Dences of substantial Progress we add the act that our Railroad improvements Are steadily advancing trom the Borders to the Interior of the state increasing our facilities of transportation and Trad we May safely aay that the present is Bright with Hopes of a prosperous future certain of realization if we Are but True to ourselves. Excited by the prospects that Are before us and anxious to grasp the advantages and promises of the future ardent natures Are but too Apt to Uree us Forward to a rash and hazardous career. It is our duty to guard against this tendency in the conduct of Public affairs it has been said that Progress is the watchword of the age but we should remember that there is a Wise conservatism that is Ever a principal element of All healthy Aud permanent growth. May our councils and deliberations be guided by that Wisdom and prudence which while it confines within legitimate Bounds the surging Waves of Progress still steadily advances the Prosperity and happiness of our common constituency. Aware that to the Devotion of the people of Texas to Well established political principles of which i was an Earnest though Humble advocate rather than to any personal merits of my own i owe my present facial relation to the state. I am none the less grateful for the Honor conferred and every movement having for its object the promotion of the Public Good and the welfare of a people who Bave so honoured me will awaken a responsive note in my bosom and Challenge my Best exertion for its Success.
