The state has on hand a surplus of uniforms and equipments which coat about $190,000, which the United states have agreed to take and for at Cost. Arrangements have been made Wilh the general government for the reimbursement of the military expenses of spice the 27th of july last. The Bills As a Ofira Are forwarded to Washington and car Tia repayments have already been made. It will be observed that the receipts from Ordinary sources of Revenue for the year 1861, have decreased huts payments have been made on some of them since the settlement at the end of the fiscal year on the 1st of december and More May reasonably be expected in addition to the payments to be made by the National government As hereinafter stated the balance available in the Treasury will be largely increased. It will also be observed that it has not yer been found necessary to Call in All of the loan effected under the of the j5th of May last. In some items the Ordinary Revenue of 1861 was in excess of that of i860. The loan authorized by the of May 15,1861, was taken at . This occurrence most Gratifying under All the then existing circumstances of embarrassment affords triumphant evidence of the Confidence of the people in the stability and integrity of the Commonwealth and of their determination to support the government. The operations of the sinking fund daring the last year have been As shown by my proclamation of the 5lh of september last a follow debt redeemed from 4tk september 1860, to 1st september 1861.�?.

The reports of the Surveyor general and state librarian will exhibit of the departments under their care. The commissioners of the sinking fund daring the last Spring received from the Philadelphia and brie late Sunbury and Erie Railroad company forty Bondson that company for $100.000 each and a info tags to secure the same executed in Coho Amity with the third Section a of March the 7th, 1861. That company has also deposited in Treasury its Bonds to the amount of $5,000,000 00, in accordance with the sixth Section of the Bame . On the 9th of May last i granted my warrant authorizing treasurer to deliver to the said company one thousand of said Bonds being to the amount of $1,000,000 00. This warrant was issued in conformity with the Law the five per cent Bonds mentioned in the fifth Section of the except those belonging to and now in the smoking fund having been previously surrendered and cancelled and satisfaction entered on the record of the mortgage mentioned in sad fifth Section. Having received notice from the company that the Bonds to delivered to the company or their proceeds had been appropriated in accordance with the provisions of the Law on the 21st of june last i appointed John a. Wright As commissioner to examine and to report Tome whether said Bonds or their proceeds had been appropriated to the purposes required by the . His report has not yet been received by is understood that arrangements have a a last been made under which the direct Railroad connection Between Philadelphia and Erie will be completed within a Short time. It is impossible to estimate too highly the importance of this great work to the Commonwealth and especially to Philadelphia and Erie and the hitherto neglected counties near its route West of the Susquehanna. By the of the 21st april 1858, for the Sale of canals to the Sunbury and Erie Railroad company it was provided Tjit if that company should sell said canals for. A greater sum in the aggregate than three and a half millions of dollars seventy five per centum of such excess should be paid to the Commonwealth by a Transfer of so much of such Bonds and securities As said company should receive for the same and payable in like manner. The company sold the canals and reported the share of the profit on such Sale due to the Commonwealth was $281,250 of which $250 was paid in. Cash and for the remaining $281,000 the Commonwealth received Coupon Bonds of the Wyoming canal company to that amount being a portion of Bonds for $900,000 issued by the company and secured by a. Mortgage of. The Wyoming. Canal formerly called the lower North Branch canal. These Bonds Bear an interest of six per cent per annul payable Semi an Nunaly on the 15th of january and july and the interest was paid by the company to january Labi inclusive. The interest due in july last has not been paid. Judgements having been obtained against the company on some of the coupons for the unpaid july interest a Bill in equity was filed in the supreme court by a Bond and stockholder in which such proceedings were had that by a decree made on the 2d september last the property and affairs of the company were placed in the hands of a receiver. A plan has been suggested for the assent of the Stock and bondholders which contemplates a Sale of the canal under lawful process Aud a Purchase of the same for the purpose of forming a new company of which the capital Stock shall be one million of dollars divided into Twenty thousand shares of fifty dollars each of which each assenting Holder of a mortgage Bond for one thousand dollars shall be entitled to eighteen shares and each assenting Holder of fifty shares of Stock of the Wyoming canal company shall be entitled to nine shares. Of course no officer of the Commonwealth had authority to assent to the proposal or in any Way to affect her position. It is believed also that the plan is not one that ought to be assented to by the Commonwealth and that Nuder All the circumstances if the convenience of individual parties requires a change such As proposed the debt due to the Commonwealth out to be first paid or fully secured. 1 suggest that the passed 8th of april 1861, entitled a an concerning the Sale of railroads canals a &c., should be modified so that in All cases in which a debt May be due to the Commonwealth by the company As whose property a Public work May be sold the purchasers thereof shall not be entitled to the benefits and privileges conferred by the unless they shall have first paid the debt due to the slate or secured the same by their Bonds to the Commonwealth secured by a first mortgage on the work itself. I commend the subject to the immediate consideration of the legislature As an Effort May be made at an Early Day to enforce a Sale of the canal and some provision by Law to protect the interests of Testate would in that Case be necessary. The wicked and monstrous rebellion which broke out Many months ago has not yet been quelled. Every sentiment of loyalty and patriotism demands its effectual suppression. In my messages of the 9ih and 30th of of april last i set Forth at length my views of the character and objects of the contest which is still pending. Subsequent reflection has confirmed me in the correctness of the opinions than expressed and to which 1 refer. In addition it ought to be understood that looking to the variety and character of her products and Industry her material interest alone would Render the preservation of the Union from the present assault upon it indispensable to Pennsylvania. She cannot afford to have a foreign Power below or above or bounding her on the Delaware the Chesapeake or the Mississippi and she will never acquiesce in each a result whatever May be the Cost in men and Money of her resistance to it. On the 9th of april last i directed the attention of the legislature to the necessity which existed for on improved military organization and on the 12th of the same month the entitled a an for the better organization of the militia of this Commonwealth a passed appropriating the Sam of $509,000 for the purpose of organizing equipping and arming the militia. On the 15th of april the president by proclamation called for a military Force of seventy five thousand men of which the quota assigned to Pennsylvania was at first sixteen afterwards reduced to fourteen regiments to serve As infantry or riflemen for the term of three months unless sooner discharged. This Call was enthusiastically responded to by the people of Pennsylvania. The first military Aid from the Loyal states which the government received at Washington was a Pennsylvania corps which arrived there prior to the i9th of that Day the passage of other corps from this and other states through Baltimore was impeded by Force and daring nearly two weeks afterwards the communication Between Washington and Tho Loyal states was almost entirely Cut off. On the 19th i received a request from the War department that the troops preparing in this state should be clothed armed equipped subsisted and transported by in consequence of the then inability of the United states. This request was of Conree complied with and Twenty five regiments being eleven regiments beyond our quota comprising Twenty thousand one Hundred and seventy five men from Pennsylvania served for the term of three months under the presidents proclamation above referred to. As the furnishing those volunteers with supplies was necessarily under the circumstances a hurried operation and As complaints were made in regard to them and frauds were alleged to have been perpetrated i appointed a Board of commissioners to investigate the whole subject. A copy of their report with the evidence taken by them has been already Laid before the Public. It is the intention of the auditor general to open Tho accounts of such parties As appear by the testimony to have been overpaid and this course has already been taken in two of those cases. On the expiration of the term of the three months men in july last some eight or ten thousand discharged Pennsylvania volunteers were thrown into Harrisburg without notice and detained Here waiting to be paid for an average time of some ten Davs. Their tents Camp equipage and cooking utensils had been taken from them at Maryland and. They a re my Here destitute of 11 Means of s Shel ter and of preparing their food. The commissary of the United a states furnished uncooked under the circumstances of emergency i deemed it necessary to make arrangement for aiding m the cooking and baking of Rifae rations and also for furnishing meals touch of the regiments As arrived during he night or under circumstances requiring instant Relief. The expenses Ai tending these operations a mounted so far As ascertained to $74$ 20 and i recommend that the legislature make in appropriation Topa them. It ought to he Tateo Jabat these expenses would have been much larger hut for the Liberal and patriotic efforts oath citizens and especially the ladies of Harrisburg their free handed hospitality and generous Aid to our wearied and hung soldiers. Deserve remembrance and Gratin de. At the special session of the legislature which commenced on the 30tb of april last i recommended Tkv Quot organization of a Reserve corps to be armed equipped clothed subsisted and paid by and drilled in names or instruction i wrap tick pation of the exigencies of the country and by the of the l5th of May last. Such a corps was directed to be a loan of $3.000.000 was authorised to defray the a expenses of that and other military a preparations. Men More than sufficient in number in number to fora some ten regiments of the Reserve corps to the 15th of May. Been accepted by me in pursuance of a Call on me afterwards rescinded for Twenty five regiments and were assembled and subject to my control. Most of these men volunteered for the Reserve corps and were immediately organized the remaining regi Menta were rapidly recruited and the corps was thus completed and George a. My Call of Chester county was commissioned As major general and assigned to the command of All the farces raised or to be raised under the provisions of the last mentioned . The j regiments composing the Reserve corps were instructed in four Campsie different parts of tue state until Kitty were Taxen Mio me service or the United states. Two , under the commands of colonels Charles j. Biddle and Seneca g. Simmons and two companies of artillery under the command of col. Charles t. Campbell at the pressing instance of the War department went sent on the 22d of june last to the Relief of col. Wallace at Cumberland and re brained for about six week there and in Western Virginia engaged in Active Ope. Rations. Towards the close of july the whole corps was called for under requisition and taken into the service of the United states. Within four Days after the disaster at Butts run eleven regiments of this Fine body of men armed drilled clothed equipped and in All respects ready for Active service were in Washington. The regiments and companies from Western Virginia and the remaining two regiments making the whole number of fifteen soon joined them there and they a re All no win service under the command of gen. My Call who has been commissioned As a brigadier general by the United states. These fifteen regiments contain fifteen thousand eight Hundred and a a six men and constitute a division comprising three brigades a regiment of artillery and one of cavalry. The whole expense of raising clothing equipping subsisting and paying the Reserve corps including the expense of establishing and fitting the Camps of instruction of recruiting and supplying regimental flags and the expenses of the Campaign of the two regiments and companies in Maryland and Western Virginia which were All defrayed by has amounted to $855,444 87. This does not include the transportation on railroads As the separation of that account would have been a work of great labor nor does it include the of the two regiments during the Campaign but it does include All the expenses which were heavy of teams and transportation not on railroads for the two regiments on the Campaign above mentioned. Twelve regiments of the Reserve corps were paid subsisted ac., by to the average Date of 22d the two regiments in Western Virginia were paid by to the Date of their departure from Harrisburg on that expedition. The cavalry regiment was not paid by . It will be perceived that the whole average expense per Man was $53 95. Previous to the 31st of april last a regiment had been enlisted in the City of Erie from Northwestern when the Call was made on me on that Day for Twenty five additional regiments the Erie regiment was ordered to March to Harrisburg. The Call was rescinded however before the regiment reached Pittsburg and i ordered it to encamp at that City where it remained until the 30 the of j Une. The National government declined to Muster the regiment into service As All existing requisitions made on were More than apprehension existed in the Western and South Western Borders of and it was deemed prudent to retain the regiment at Pitta Burg to meet an emerges that might after the passage of the aet of Lith Mev 1861, it was expected that this regiment would a form part of the ree Erre Volunteer Corpe Bat a the men had been a Long Tima from Home and remained inactive in Camp the declined entering the service and were end dieted and paid up to the 30 the of june a . Two regiment been enlisted from the tame part of Pennsylvania at the Eit of Erie one of which has been at Washington in service since september and the other is now read for marching orders and it is Doe to the first Erie regiment to a that most of the men Are now in service. Further requisition for sixteen regiments of infant and two regiment of cavalry were shortly afterwards made a the War department. Of these sixteen have aired been raised and Are in the service of the United states and the remaining two in the course of organisation and nearly read to March. In addition to the. Requisitions on the War department had Giren authorities to numerous individuals to raise volunteers in Pennsylvania but As that system was found to create much embarrassment a general order was issued by the War department on the 25th of september last placing All snob organizations under tha control of the governor and a hotly afterwards a requisition was made on to increase her quota to thousand men. Those Independent organizations at the were called thus became Pennsylvania regiments and As completed and tent Forward form part of the. Quota of regiments Hare been numbered and the last to this Date is numbered one Hundred and fifteen. Two of the three months regiment have continued the service Ander the late requisitions and retain their original numbers.

In compliance with this joint resolutions of the 16th of May last i have procured regimental flags for Tho Pennsylvania volunteers and have presented them in person to most of the regiments in other posses the regiments being on or near the Potomac have requested or. Cowan senator Aud Moses grow and Wright members of the House of representatives from Pennsylvania to present them in the name of the Commonwealth. The general government requested that the states would abstain. From purchasing arms As their Competition was found injurious in the mar fact and in View of the Large expenditures of Money in arming and equipping the Volunteer lore of , provided for the defence of the National ,.i did not Purchase any As authorised by the Twenty eighth Section of the of the 15th of May 1861. The state has now quit to Natty arms As Are necessary to Arm 11 her Volunteer organisations in existence but influenced by the threatening aspect of our relations with foreign governments x have directed Tho adjutant general to Procura arme As soon a it can a done on reasonable terms without injurious note Pettlon with the National govern ment. Arms have been distributed among the Border count Iii to All tha organisations that have been formed to receive them. One thousand nine Hundred and thirty arms thus distributed. I have also addressed a letter to the commissioners of All the Border counties offering arms to them As soon As military organizations shall be formed to receive them. Besides thus complying with the requirements of the Twenty seventh Section of the of 15th May last i have deemed it prudent to offer five thousand arms to such military organizations As May be formed in Philadelphia of a plan to he approved by me As commander in chief. Muskets and rifles to a considerable extent have been furnished to the Pennsylvania volunteers from Arsenal. Others have been sent by the United states authorities to Arm Thorn before leaving . In some cases regiments have gone without arms under assurances from the War department that they would be armed at Washington or other near designated Points and that their immediate departure was required. It was thought Wise in these cases not to insist on the arms being sent before the regiments in arched a this would have imposed on the government an unnecessary expanse in a eight and would have been productive of delays which might have been seriously detrimental to the Public service. pieces of artillery with limbers caissons lodges ammunition wagons harness and All the accessory implements and equipments were furnished by to the artillery regiment of the Reserve corps tan of these by and their Cost has been refunded by tha United states. Diligence has been used the collecting arms throughout the. State end repairing and altering them in the most approved manner. The state Haa now 62 pieces of artillery of which 17 need repairs. 26,753 muskets and Al Flea to meow which Are in the hands of Meohan ios being repaired 1,910are in tha hands of Volunteer corps throughout 1,930 in the Possession of county commissioners and 1,000 with Tho Reserve corps of Philadelphia. In addition to this the City of Philadelphia Baa 9 pieces of rifled artillery and 4,978 muskets and rifles. The state has also in the Arsenal at Harris Borg 1,966 sabres and swords and. 1957 pistols and the City of Philadelphia has 440 sabres and 328 pistols with the necessary accoutrements. There is also in the Arsenal at Harrisburg a Large amount of accoutrements and ammunition for artillery and Small arms. The adjutant general is successfully engaged in Ooi Lection Aims throughout and itis expected that Tho number above stated will be largely increased. Probably at least 5,000 muskets and rifles and several pieces of artillery will still be collected. The care which has been bestowed upon the Comfort of tha volunteers and Tho goodness and sufficiency of their supplies of All kinds and the excellent arrangements of the medical department under the control of surgeon general Henry h. Smith Are proved by the fast that More than 60,000 men have been far various generally Short periods at Camp Curtin since Tho 9th of april last and that Down to the 1st of january instant there died but forty nine men at that Camp Viz forty four from sickness two belonging to regiments from other states who had been injured on railroads two accidentally killed in Camp Curtin and one shot in Harrisburg. To facilitate the making of allotments of their by on volunteers in the Field for the support of their families at Home x appointed Hon. Edgar Cowan Thomas e. Franklin and e. C. Hume esqe., commissioners to visit the Camps of on men on and South of tha Potomac and also James Park and m. A Soltz Dover esqs., commissioners to visit those in Kentucky and elsewhere in the Western country to fall the attention of Tho troops to the system of allotment and to encourage them in adopting a practical plan for carrying it into effect. The several reports of these commissioners Are highly satisfactory. For details on the several subjects connected with the military operations of this state i refer to the reports of the adjutant general surgeon general quartermaster general commissary general and paymaster general which accompany this message. The duties imposed on me were onerous that i found it necessary to invite tha temporary assistance of gentlemen on my staff to Aid me to perform them in this capacity colonels Thomas a. Scott Gideon j. Ball and John a. Wright contributed their valuable services from the Middle of april until they were called away by other duties. Col. Soott remaining until he became connected with the War department col. Ball until the 1st of june and col. Wright until the 23d of july for the time thus devoted to the service of the have refused to receive any compensation. Colonels Joseph d. Potts a. L. Russell j. Brown. Parker and Craig Biddle were in ser race up to the 20th of december. The department of Telegraph and transportation was under the exolus Lve control of col. Potto. Tho system and Economy of its management show How faithfully and Well he fulfil lied h is office. It is but just to All these gentlemen that i should Bear testimony to the untiring Zeal and Fidelity with which their duties were performed. The quota of having been More than filled and her military Force organized x was enabled on the 20tb of Doe her last to dispense with a personal staff and the temporary arrangement which had bean made for Ite employment was than closed. T by the thirteenth Section of the aet of the �5th of May 1861,1 was authorized id draw my War rants on Tea Treasury for a sum not exceeding 820,000 for compensation to such persons a3 might be required to serve the country in a military capacity to. Of this fund i have drawn from Tho Treasury-48,500. Out of which i paid Tho compensation of my personal staff also other expenses of Tho military department and Tho Ual expenses of persons employed on temporary service none of whom received any further compensation and exp uses of the Oom Misiona appointed to investigate alleged frauds 0., and the expenses of establish no military patrols on the Maryland line and $500 on Beret service. My account is settled m the office of the auditor general up to the is of december. On that d a x had expended 86,4g0, and except some inconsiderable payments mad s Nee the Ballance re Mains in my hands. The 1 Epolit of the Aud tor general will exhibit Tho. Items of the a count. An account expenditures by on behalf Puthe United states is of Araste then been ascertained Aud settled a by the accounting departments Here was made up to Tho 1st Day of september 1sgj, and presented on the 12th of that month at the Treasury department i the United tates for set tement and allowance the sum of $606 000 Hisbon re e v de from Tea treas tiry depart Neft on hat no out ?.fspafl6s by Fujs general government of the organisation and pud port of the Reserve corps Mavy not be provided for by any existing not of Cong Hes As those expenses were incurred by forthe Benefit of the general government and have been productive of results most important to the welfare and even safety of the country it would be right that an aet of Congress should be passed providing expressly for their re payment. It lies with the legislature to adopt the proper Means for directing the attention of Congress to this subject. A assurances have been received from the Treasury department that the examination of the Mii Italy accounts of will be proceeded in without delay so that May receive amp credit for the bal lace due in time to apply the same towards the payment of her quota of the direct tax. Assuming the completion of this arrangement if shall assume the direct tax for this year a saving of fifteen per cent will Leerue to her and no present increase of her taxation will be necessary. Whether this credit be Given or not i re Coom mend that the payment of the direct tax be assumed by . In Case assumes the payment of this tax there should be such revision of the tax Laws As will hereafter equitably apportion the Burden among the various interests now subject or that can properly be made subject to taxation. Tho saving of fifteen percent to the people of by the Assumption is a matter worthy of thought but a More important consideration is that it will enable Yon who represent All the varied interests of Tho Commonwealth to apportion the tax in such manner As to Bear equally upon All. Our Revenue Laws had imposed on re Ai and personal property As its full proportion but Little More than one third of the taxes needed for the Ordinary expenditures of the government. By the of the 15th May last the tax on this species of property has already been increased one sixth. Should refuse to assume the United states tax the whole Barden of it will fall upon those interests interests too most unfavourably affected by the War whilst other kinds of property end other sources of Revenue judged by our Laws Able to nearly two thirds of the present revenues of would not be galled on to contribute one Dollar of additional tax. A. The militia system of the Commonwealth is tery imperfect. X recommend the establishment of a commission to Frame and report a system More adequate to the exigency of the times. I earnestly re Eom Menes to the legislature that provision be made for the military instruction of youth the appointment of a military instructor in the Normal schools would in a Short period give teachers to the common schools who would be competent to train the boys in attendance on them. If would in my opinion be Wise also to provide for the Pur Bose or leasing by the Commonwealth of a building for a military school and for employing competent instructors at the expense of req ring the pupils to defray the other expenses. No Pupil should be admitted to this school without having passed a thorough examination on mathematics and ail fitting subjects of instruction except the military Art proper. I respectfully urge this subject on your Early consideration As one of mate rial perhaps vital importance. I have taken measures to direct the efficient attention of the general government to the fortification of the water a preaches on the Seaboard and the lakes and arrangements Are in the course of being effected which it is hoped will be satisfactory in their result. I Send with this message a copy of a communication from general Totten chief of the military Engineer department at Washington i have also represented to the Secretary of the Navy the necessity for floating defences on the Dela Ware and Assurance that they shall he prepared at the earliest moment. _ i have had a correspondence with the authorities and some of the Oit Sens of Erie on the subject of the defenceless Gondi too of that City and the part of bordering on the Jake. On examination it is found that there Are no defences on the Lake and that the ordinance at Tho City of Erie was withdrawn by the National government in the summer of 1861. The Secretary of the Navy on a request made directed that the Crew of the United states Steamer Michigan should not be disbanded As has been usual and that vessel will remain in the Harbor of Erie during the Winter. Should the National govern. Ment unexpectedly fail units duty of providing adequate defences at on assail Ablo Points East and West i earnestly recommend that the legislature take prompt Means for that purpose. We should be admonished by the recent indications from abroad to be prepared for our own defence As Well As for the suppression of Domestic insurrection. In selecting a site for s National armory if the Public Good be alone considered Pennsylvania will be preferred As she affords the combined advantages of e Central position abundance of Materiel and skilled mechanics and a Puoplo of undoubted loyalty. I commend to the attention of the legislature the report of the superintendent of the Public schools the flourishing state of which and the rapid Progress of education Are subjects of just congratulation the reports of the Lunatic Ixo Spital at Harrisburg and of Western Pennsylvania of the House of Refuge at Philadelphia Aud Pittsburg of the institutions for the deaf and dumb and for the Blind and the Northern Home for friendless children at Philadelphia and of the Pennsylvania training schools for idiotic and Ifelo ble minded children at Media show that these meritorious charities Aro Well administered and i recommend that the countenance and Aid of the Commonwealth be continued to them. Under the joint Resolution of 16th May last commissioners Hare been appointed to revise the Revenue Laws whose names will be forthwith submitted for the advice and Content of the Senate. It is hoped that the commissioners will to Able to report during the present session of the legislature. Considering the great labor imposed on them and the vast importance at the. Present time of an Noble and efficient performance of the duties of the commissioners that the compensation provided for by the joint Resolution should Beinor eased Toan adequate amount. It was evident Long sinde that it would be impossible for the Banks to continue to redeem their obligations in Coin in the face of the Large issues of paper the necessity for which was imposed on them and the government by the exigencies of the times. No Surprise therefore was Felt at the suspension of spent payments by. The Banks which took place on monday the 30th off december last. Under the . I recommend that they be relieved from All penalties for this breach of the Law Pennsylvania has made great efforts to support the government. She has Given More and bet ter clothed and equipped men than any other state and Haa far exceeded her quota of the military levies. The sons of of r Best citizens Young men of education end Mee Safiu the ranks of her Volunteer regiments. Their Gallant conduct whenever an Opportunity has been afforded to them has done Honor to the Commonwealth.

A rigid investigation has been going on Ever since but the culprit has not yet been discovered an 1812 War Story. The following we believe has no a. I seen print. Ogden Hoffman used to Tell the Story. He was in the great fight Between the Constitution and the Guerriere and said that As the British ship came sailing Down on them As they Heaird the Sharp or Dors when the guns were run out and Tho men could be seen ready with their match locks an officer came in haste to Captain Isaac Hull and asked for orders to fire. A no Tyr to was the quiet response. As they came still nearer and the British vessel poured in her fire the first lieutenant of the Constitution came on the poop and bogged permission to return the broadside saying that the men could not be restrained much longer. A not yet a was the indifferent reply. Still nearer the British ship came and the american prisoners who were in the cockpit of the Gurriere afterwards said that they began to believe that their own countrymen were afraid to measure their strength with that of the enemy and this thought gave More pain than the wounds which some of them were still suffering from.
