J   a Fri  the first official information received by the executive from the seat of these disorders was the communication of capt. g. Tobin Bear ing Bam Ireno near. Brownsville dec. 6th 1859 i was gratified to learn from that dispatch that the Federal government had interposed to restore ordering thai Region and that major Heintzleman an officer of discretion and valor had assumed the control of military operations. Whatever. Compla Tuu May be made against the Federal government on account of the removal of Flie troops from that portion of our Border its promptitude in at this time is deserving of consideration satisfied from the port of capt Tobin that a sufficient Force was on the spot to quell the disturbance Aru that the Federal Arm would be still further extended at the Call of its officer commanding the troops theron i dispatched capt Hill with an escort of Twenty men i with instructions to major . Ford commanding the Texas forces by Virti Teof an order from my predecessor. In that communication i stated that " As the . Military operations has been assigned by the Federal government to its officers if troops Are desired from Texas it is proper that a requisition should be made by an officer of the Federal government in con Maart of Ehe u. S. Forces at that station should such a requisition be made i am satisfied that the citizen soldiery of the country will respond with alacrity to the Call. On the 10th of january the report of major John s. Ford was received dated at Ringgold Barracks 29th december 1859, giving in account of the engagement at Rio Grande City in which the followers of Cortina were completely routed Aud dispersed. The entire forces on this occasion were under the command of maj. Heintzleman to whom great credit is Given for the disposition undo of the troops. Our rangers on this As in the former occasion behaved with thai bravery which is a part of the texan character and the Federau oops likewise acted with great gallantry.

The retired list will be selected in a manner that will avoid the objections which were found to the plan adopted in respect to the Navy retired list. Emigration to Texas the Mobile advertiser of sunday says the Steamer we. Jones jr., came ii from Wetumka last night with 360 passengers-210 in the Cabin and 150 on deck. The passengers Are mostly emigrants bound for Texas. On the 11th inst. I received dispatches from maj. We. G. Tobin dated Ringgold Barracks january 3d, 1860, showing the organization of the Texas forces and the result of the election held accordingly also a letter from major Heintzleman in reply to major Tobin to which it is shown that in the opinion of that officer the forces of Cortinas Are ent ujhely dispersed and that a reinforcement of United states troop3 were on the March. All of these documents Are respectfully have every reason to Hope that Ere this time the disorders have been quelled and that the emergency which has called our citizens from their Homes no longer exists i to table to form any Correct conclusion As to the origin of these disorders it has been impose sighs for me to Lay before your honorable body the information which would Othelow Bau petted at my hands. Not Only ther legislature but the people of our entire state on whom May fall the Burthen of taxation to meet the Cost of sustaining troops in the Field have a right to know the entire facts connected with the disturbance. If the causes Are local in their nature As i have supposed or i pay them for their services yet they cannot be exp cited to enter Ilion the dangerous service before them without Ueo Essary subsistence. The executive is determined to use All the constitutional Means in his pow a to give Security to our Border. He will Endeavor to Send to the Frontier efficient and reliable Protection and will Call into the Field no More men than appears absolutely necessary but beyond this he has no Power. The legislature alone can provide an appropriate the Money. Our Frontier people have Long been harassed by indians. They have been compelled from time to time to leave their Homes in Pursuit of them to punish their aggressions and recover property stolen. A feeling of insecurity exists which nothing but an Active Force continually on the Alert can dispel. Scattered along the Border they Are unable to get together in sufficient numbers to punish the enemy without endangering their firesides. I have therefore determined to Send them Protection from the Interior. If any emergency arises Orthe indians appear in Force they May then be called into service is minute men without leaving their families Long unprotected.

We cannot expect oar citizens to wait the delay to be experienced in our endeavours to obtain the recognition of our state forces by the United states. They must be provisioned and paid common Justice demands that the state recompense them and not Force Iben to Wail until the general government shall Ine the be Cessar appropriations. To meet ? to use extra Ordinary expenditures by the most prudent Nide Iskin object which in especially enjoin upon oui attention Berry Avenue of extra Vega he should. Be closed every proper Means a t retrenchment should be. Adopted. A i the keys of the Treasury should be held with a honest grasp and no appropriation be made which is not strictly necessary and in accordance with. Law. Every disbursing officer of the government should be held to strict accountability and no stretch of ,permitted in the exercise of the Trust confided in him. A at Economy will Noti accomplish can in my opinion be Best supplied by taxation. Texas has Leared some experience from going in debt which she will do Well to remember and i Trust she will guard against its consequences in the future. Y i the various departments of government should in my opinion be made As far As pos sible self sustaining and where it is impossible from their nature to make them so a rigid exaction of duty at the hands of All those who arc Inith employ of the government should be required. No free government can afford Toj is Tab list sinecure or to support idleness. Thi Money which comes from the pockets of the people should be economize for their Good and All who Are the recipients of its Bould Render affair recompense of time and labor. Are within the province of the the executive is powerless and if Reform is needed in any of these respects it Falls upon a the legislature to enquire into abuses if there Ibe Airt and provide an immediate remedy. The deficit in the Revenue of the land office added to the fact that the business of that department does not keep Pace with the demand a pot it furnish subjects for your consideration i he interests of the state demand that it should be self supporting and Ilse interests of the people demand that its business should be brought up at the earliest possible period. A Large Force is already employed in that department but the issuance of patents has been delayed and it remains for the legislature to determine whether this is to be attributed to the amount of labor performed Botthe employees of the government or the fact that the Force is inadequate to the remands of business. If the latter it is false Economy to allow a further accumulation of business and thus cause a still greater delay. The holders of four land certificates Are entitled to their patents and if an is necessary it should at once be provided. The deficit in the operations of that department estimated for the present fiscal year ending August ,11st, 1860, at $24,000 shows the necessity of prompt legislation to bring its affairs up to a proper Standard. If on the other hand the de licit arises from the fact that a portion of the time of that department is occupied by business for which no fees Are provided by Law to Jose who consume the time of the employees in transactional tboir., 3taonfabe c polled of pay for the same. In my opinion affairs of that office can Best be brought to self supporting Standard by providing in entire system of fees covering the entire ground of its operations and providing at the same time for the payment of its Jenil yees whenever the same is practicable in proportion to the labor performed. I cannot press too earnestly us n the legislature the subject of common school education. The Success of the system already in operation is established beyond a doubt. Its application is general of tied its defects As few As any system which could be applied to a population As scattered As ours. The nucleus of a Complete sys Teni is already provided and we have in Hui Public Domain the Means of strengthening it until its capacity will equal the demands made upon it As our population increases. No better use canine made of the proceeds of the Sale of the alternate sections of land reserved tithe state from any cause than to apply the same to this fund. I would also commend to your consideration the importance of extending a reasonable Aid to institutions of learning now in operation in Bur state supported by private Enterprise and to encourage by a general Law the establishment of others. Our citizens have already displayed much Zeal and Enterprise in rearing up in Pur midst institutions which a a accomplishing great Good. To sustain these is difficult and As the benefits arising from them is to be Felt in the Genera Prosperity of the state and the Intelli gence of its entire people a proper encourage ment at the hands of tie legislature should be extended. Surrounded by proper guards a measure of this character would be productive . He establishment of a University is in my opinion a matter alone for the future. At this time it us neither expedient nor is it Good policy for the Sale of the lands set apart for the University fund. If at some future period it should be deemed expedient or in keeping with a More enlarged policy to devote Dor entice energies  to a More general diffusion of knowledge than a University would afford or Avan if a he voice of the state Sho Tild demand the establishment of one these lands a ill then provide the Means of advancing he cause of education. When that period arrives their value will to greatly increased if sold now but Little will be realized from them and before the expiration of Twenty years the time upon which Over fifty thousand acres have already been sold the lands will be Worth threefold the amount they would bring now with accumulated interest. So far As the one Hundred thousand dollars of Bonds and their interest taken from the general and applied to the University fund by Tihe last legislature Are concerned. I believe the condition of the Treasury and our immediate necessities demand that the act be repealed and the Money again placed subject to appropriation. We need Money for the Protection of our Froin tier and to save us from taxation More than for a fund which promises no immediate Benefit. Our common school fund already provides for the education contemplated by the Constitution and if this amount thus unnecessarily withdrawn from the general fund will reduce the Burthen of taxation the people will to better Able in the future to Bear taxation to support a University if one should be necessary. I have Long regarded our present Laud sys tean As defective Aud believe with the framers of the Constitution of the Republic that our Public Domain should be Section Zed. The Federal government has adopted this svs Teni with reference to its Public lands and All of the difficulties which surround our titles Are obviated. We cannot redeem the past but we can provide for the future if All of our Public Domain were surveyed by competent persons who would be willing to take a portion of our lauds As compensation for their labor it would greatly facilitate the settlement of the country and give Security to our land operations. It would also furnish some data upon which to base conclusions As to the value of our lands and if accompanied by the researches of a geological and agricultural Bureau would vastly tend toward the development of the resources of our state our lauds if divided into sections half Aud Quarter sections would meet a ready Sale whereas at present the difficulty attending our titles make Many persons loth to file their certificates lest they May conflict with private locations but if their metes and Bounds were declared by the state none of this apprehension would exist. I believe that the policy of extending our Frontier too rapidly has already resulted in great Lis of life Wiuf to the sparse settlements being an easy prey to the Savages.

The duties of the Public Printer like those of All other officers should be plainly defined. The Law should provide against the latin Ioinous construe Ion by which thousands of May be swept from be Treasury upon a plea of custom and especially declare that the work shall not be leaded but shall be close or solid and that no unnecessary Blanks bet allowed. The various report s of Public officers printed for the use of the l Gisia Ture should also be declared not to be a t of the journals and that they shall not be printed As appendices to them. The present Law h defective in these respects and i commend to the legislature the propriety of so amending it As to meet not Only these Bat All other objections. Up in the action of the legislature depends to a considerable extent the construction to be Given to he present contract for the Public printing. It is for the legislature to say after the Matte has been fully investigated whether the charges made by the Public Printer for the past four i ears arc Correct and in accordance with Law. If they Are not and Money has been illegally Iran from the Treasury it is not Only in accordance with Justice but precedent that re Titi Trion should be made. In providing a Means for disseminating the seems to the executive that a regard should be had to the Means most Likely to bring them within the reach of the great mass of the people. I do not believe that the present Mode of distributing them is calculated to accomplish this end. But few individuals get Possession of them and then frequently Long after they have tone into effect. The people have a right to now the Laws and the legislature should seek that Channel of communication which is most accessible. I believe that if a portion of the Money now expended in printing was devoted to the publication of the Laws in one newspaper in each county in the state or at least one in each Judici District the Benefit to the Community would be far greater than that received by the print Jug of them in pamphlet form alone. A much smaller number in pamphlet form would then suffice and the expense to the state would be but Little if any greater. The Cost of publishing the general Laws in the manner mentioned would be but slight and if at the same time by the distribution of the Public funds the entire press of the state is benefited to any extent it is in object for favourable 1-legislature, Vij.

Vently in in accordance with your commission Ltd a vill forthwith a oct of adopting such measures As will urge upon Congress the Justice of paying to Texas the balance now in the Treasury of the United states on account of our Public debt. In the present condition of our Treasury this amount becomes important Texas is entitled to it and should receive it without delay. The Lime has again arrived when an examination if the affairs of the state Penitentiary is called for. An investigation of its financial and sanitary condition is necessary that the legislature May be Able to judge As to the legislation necessary to sustain it properly. The jaw passed by the last legislature which Grants a Preemption privilege for every three Negroe an individual May own is in my opinion based upon erroneous ideas of the institution of slavery calculated to create distinctions Between Rich and poor and to Confer exclusive benefits upon one class of on citizens at the expense of the other and recognizes the idea that government is bound to make the Rich Richer and the poor poorer. In the Eye of the Law All men should stand equal. To draw a distinction Between those of our population who have not been abbe to acquire slaves and those who have is in my opinion impolitic and i respectfully Tuuu acrid to the legislature the immediate repeal of the Law. I can Jot refrain from congratulating the legislature upon the Triumph of conservatism As seen in the Many evidences of the determination of the makes of the people of the North to abide by the of institution and the Union Aud to put Down the fanatical efforts of misguided abolitionists who would endanger the safety of the Union to Advance their vapid schemes. That their efforts will so operate upon the impending struggle As to stay the band of slavery agitators is to be hoped. This out speaking of the people should be received in our midst As the Evidencio that notwithstanding the ravings of from the Bio Grande. Our latest intelligence from Brownsville contained in the Flag of the 12th inst. The Flag mentions reports that Cortinas is reorganizing his band for further depredations on the Frontier. It says soon after his defeat at Rio Grande City at the head of Only ten men on the mexican Side of the ride where be had. Been driven he commenced recruiting. From near Camargo he has been traced to the mexican towns and Rancho gradually augmenting his Force As he came Down the Riter until he made a halt with from two to three Hundred men some Twenty five Miles above this place where he still remains encamped with his main Force Only some 75 of his number having been known to Cross into Texas. A Union of action Between american and mexican forces must be had to put Down the guerrilla gang who have no sooner been driven from american soil than they reorganized and recruited on the mexican Side of the River with the avowed intention of invading our country again. Hons. Robt. H. Taylor and Angel Navarro representatives respectively from Fannin and Bexar counties arrived Here by the Arizona from Austin. Of their Mission we know Little beyond the fact that at the solicitation of gov. Durston they came to see if any Good could crime out of Nazareth. Or. Taylor is an experienced ski i us successful Diplomatist or. is a eng and talented and Clever As is their appearance either is Worth Ali that both would pass for. We would however take occasion to add that if their Mission Here is to in castigate from the foundation up the cause of the Rio Grande War our citizens will bid them a god Speed knowing As All must that it is to investigation alone we must look to secure the Protection supposed to have been guaranteed us by the Constitution and the Laws.

I am now supplying tha Trade with pore Cognac Brandy iia bottles both for medical and private use the of Success that has crowned my efforts to within the reach of ail under the name of aromatic Schiedam schnapps and to drive out of the Market the pernicious compounds sold As Din throughout the country led Many leading druggists apothecaries and medical men for some years past to solicit me to pursue the same course in regard to the article of Brandy. I should have complied with these requests from All quarters Long ago Bat was deterred from it by the fact that owing to the exorbitant prices of Brandy in Francq consequent upon the shortness of the grape crop for some years there was no of my being a Bis to import the choicest Brandy bottle it and Sellzt at moderate prices. Fortunately for me the grape crop for the last and previous year and the Prospect for this was Kos Dent and prices of Brandy have fallen to the Standard of ten years ago. The duty of Brandy is also seventy per sent. Lower and i have now made arrangements with four Brandy exporters in France of the highest repute and am regularly receiving consign Menta of the Best Cognac Brandy which i am bottling and Selling As Wolfe s genuine Cognac Brandy guarantee with my Seal labels and certificates the Brandy so bottled by me As the pure unadulterated article and it will be found when used As a Medicine a beverage or a cordial healthful and invigorating. It has been a matter of Universal complaint that a bottle of pure unmixed French Brandy was very diff cult to of Bap Aci the purchaser nine times in ten was deceived Fath a vile manufactured imitation. Of All descriptions of ardent spirits. Brandy from its High Price has been the one article that mixers Aud Sellers have turned their attention to and millions of Gallons of the so called French Brandy have teen scattered annually through the land and have been the primary cause of murder suicides cruelties and crimes and have sent thousands to an Early grave self destroyers from delirium Kremens mania a pot and horrors names unknown until unprincipled men began to make maddening compounds and sell it As the pure French Brandy. The Virtues of pure French Brandy need not be told by me. They Are known throughout the world As a Medicine or mild stimulant. It is As the French nation poetically Call it " eau de la vie the water of life. But this applies to it Only when pure and unadulterated. Manufactured with the fearful ingredients that Matte a Good imitation it becomes a death drink to innocent tens of thousands of our race. To remedy a fearful evil i have commenced importing Brandy bottling it and Selling it As " Wolfe s genuine Cognac Brandy " i am daily rec Elvin orders from the druggists and apothecaries in All parts of the Union to sell it for medical purposes.
