Fellow citizens of the Senate and of the House of representatives. Having received ice notification of my election to the office of governor transmitted by your order i have attended for the purpose of entering upon the discharge of the duties. Unusually limited As the Powers and duties in that department Are by the provisions of the Constitution 1 am conscious still that a due and just administration of them is of importance to the character and welfare of the state and the Prosperity and happiness of the citizens. Called to enter on a scene untried and to act a part to which i am unaccustomed i can Only say that if an habitual solicitude for the Prosperity and character of the state arising from a sense of common interest with my fellow citizens in her welfare and from an Early participation in her councils can impart sufficient motives to exertion added to the sacred sanctions by which 1 have become pledged i feel some Confidence that Assiduity and Fidelity will be brought into execution of the Trust. From the circumstances under which i now meet you i will not attempt to present a View of the state of the government or to recommend any particular measures to your attention for legislative provision. Drawn off from a near View of our state policy by other avocations i could not at present perform that duty with satisfaction to myself or a Prospect of advantage to you. I am persuaded however you will experience no inconvenience in your deliberations from the omission. The communication a vide by my respected predecessor in the executive office which has properly brought before Yog the the More prominent topics for your consideration. The intelligence and observation of the several members coming As they do from the different parts of the state possessing local information and bringing with them a knowledge of the wishes and the wants of our constituents will amply Supply the defect and furnish the information necessary to Correct decision on All measures claiming your attention. Restrained As i am from entering into the consideration of the particular policy of the state 1 May in accordance with precedent Avail myself of the present occasion to present considerations of a More general character. Among the objects most interesting to men that of the state of society to which they belong and of the government under which they live is entitled to the highest regard and attention. Whilst the Progress of Liberal principles on the subject of government and the rights of Man in the different nations of the world justly claims a share of our attention whilst the situation of every people contending against tyranny and for the Possession of their rights is entitled to All our sympathies and the potent Means put in array to arrest that principle and bind its votaries under the chains of despotic Power deserve our detestation still our first attention and highest regard Are due to the concerns of the government in our own country. There is ground of thankfulness to a kind Providence that we Are citizens of a country enjoying free institutions of gratitude to our ancestors whose valor secured and whose patriotism and Wisdom gave form to those institutions we enjoy this Patrimony transmitted by them but the Possession is in Trust we Are bound to transmit it unimpaired to posterity. The governments of our country in their Complex form Are a peculiarity they Are unlike those of any other nation but it is this peculiarity that imparts to them the admirable Quality of adaptation both in general and particular interests to the situation of a free people occupying an extensive territory under various climes and differing in habits manners and situation. The general government constituted to act on objects of a general nature alone upon objects in which the operation and effect extend to the whole Community or beyond the limits of any particular state possesses in regard to the great interests of the common defence the regulation of Commerce and of foreign Intercourse All Tbs advantages of a purely National government. It commands the general resources and wields the Arm of the collective Power in defence of the rights of a common country. The particular state governments in regulating their internal policy can accommodate and adapt their measures to the situation and circumstances of the Community in that exact manner not attainable by a general government to we be r constituted. To estimate the value and Utility of this Complex system of government we Are not now left to resort to the opinions of theoretical and speculative men it has had the teat of Experiment both in the Vicissitudes of peace and War Faud in both the Experiment has been Success Ful if the character of a government May be tested and its Utility estimated by its effects upon the National Security upon civil Liberty and Protection of private and personal rights the increase and diffusion of wealth and the moral sentiment and intelligence of the people then will that established by the american people be pronounced not Only Good but when placed in co Iurasc with any other must be characterized the very Best. It is in the definition of the Powers originating from the people and distributed Between the respective general and state governments that any exception can be found to the harmonious and successful operation under this Complex system. It is unfortunate that on the line of de Markatoon for prescribing the limits to the Powers of the one ground should be found for latitude of construction and for conflicting claims to jurisdiction. Perhaps it is owing to the uncertainty of moral definitions that. Incontrovertible precision had not been employed in the limitation of the Powers vested in the general government. It is Only in mathematical science that a line can be described with mathematical precision. If the evil has its foundation in the nature of the Case we May mitigate though we cannot remove it and in this Case it will be found easier to avoid the ground of collision than to Settle contested rights. But should the Public functionaries of the respective governments while tenacious of rights clearly vested bring into exercise with regard to All others that spirit of forbearance and Compromise so conspicuous and operative in the Council which produced and which gave Sanction to the Federal Constitution without the sacrifice of any important inter est Good feeling and Harmony might be Vrey but to bring into More particular i the regulations Ana measures belonging to the internal policy of the state. For it is in these that. The citizen has the highest and most in medial interest. These touch the Domestic secure the right and afford the Means Tel the redress of wrongs to individuals. By them moral virtue is promoted and Public vices suppressed. In every free state enjoying a government adapted to the nature of Man the Laws emanating from the Public will and directed to the promo Tion of he general Good the great outline of the provisions for the Security of rights must under different modifications be the same the rights of conscience and the Liberty of the press will be inviolable private and personal rights protected equal and exact Justice administered to All the trial by jury and Hareas Corpus secured. These Are essential ingredients in the composition of every free government and with regard o them we Seldom err while under the guidance of pure intentions. It is in the enactments of a positive character where the provisions must be adjusted to the circumstances and situation of the Community that the judgment and abilities of the most experienced Are Bro to into1 exercise to discover the cases requiring provision and in e measure to be adapted in the Case. It is the duty of those to whom the Public concerns of the state Are entrusted to ascertain her situation and to devise and apply the Meas ores Best suited to that situation. The state / of recent origin grown up with a rapidity lit prec dented and yet placed at a Remote distance from maturity. The population composed of emigrants and their descendants from different states not yet brought by social Intercourse or and system of education to an uniform character. The soil Fertile and productive of the articles most necessary for the subsistence and Comfort of Man. The territory intersected by Rivers and streams fitted to extensive com Merci d Intercourse and affording Sites convenient for the application of water Power to Mills and other machinery. For the exportation of the surplus produce the larger portion of the state is confined to a single pot to and that in a climate uncongenial Aid unfriendly to the Constitution and health of the citizens engaged in the Commerce. From this View it will appear that the situation of our state not Only is susceptible of but requires great improvement in the Means of commercial Intercourse. To explore and open avenues to other and better markets appears to result As a duty requiring the attention of the legislature. The expenditure of the Revenue on objects of this kind is the most beneficial application possible. In examining into the state of the government should any objects appear to require the attention of the legislature they will be attended to and presented by message. As it is Tho duty so it will be my constant new Deavor to co operate with you in measures for securing the liberties and promoting the interest of our constituents Jeremiah Morrow. I e s it a foreign intelligence. By thursday s mail. From the philae National Gazette dec. 21. By the ship Factor Cap a sheed arrived at this port from Liverpool whence she sailed on the 30 h october we hav received Liverpool papers to the 29th, a it to London to the 28th of the same month inclusive.

The Castle of Corinth surrendered to the christians and by this achievement the Morel has been again liberated from the barbarians. This event will be considered important in history because it has been preceded by the most Brilliant Success on the part of the greeks. The turkish Fleet after the loss of six ships which they sustained in action with the grecian Navy attempted in vain to gain the Dardanelles and were forced Back into the Haven of Napoli i Romania where the greeks had assembled All their forces round them. The situation of the barbarians was highly critical., for they were hourly exposed to an attack and their destruction was extremely probable Tor the greeks recollecting the bloody a Cenes at Scio and. Cyprus were filled with the most determined purpose of revenge particularly the islanders. Letters from Zante of the 14th sept. Given in the foreign papers fully confirm the previous reports of the successes of the greeks in the Morea. The turks after being Defeated in the Plains of Argos by co Cotroni on the 23d of july and at the defile of tree on the 24th and 25th,entrenched themselves at where they received reinforcements from Patriss and Lepanto. The greek army was in the meantime increased by volunteers from All quarters to 25,c00 men and they occupied All the passes leading towards the isthmus. On the 6th and 7th of August the turks sought to Force a passage upon Corinth. In the engagement of the 6th they were attacked upon All Points and repulsed with great loss in the Battle of the 7th, which was very bloody 3000 turks perished upon the Field of Battle the general in chief All Pacha formerly grand vizier was among the drama i native of drama Pasha of thessaly was made prisoner with several Beys of the province and of Macedonia. The rest of the turkish army dispersed itself upon three different Points. A corps of about 2500 men gained the High Road to Corinth where they were pursued. Another corps of 2000 men took flight towards hag Ion Oros from whence they sought by a desperate Effort to regain the Road to Napoli i Romanis but surprised by Nicitas near Berbatis it was Cut in pieces a very Small number Thi owing themselves into the mountains whence they eventually reached Corinth. A third corps the most considerable of All and composed principally of albanians was unable from its desperate situation to take any other course than to precipitate itself on the route leading to Tri Politza overtaken in its flight Between alg Docampos and the Lake of Learne it was attacked and left on the place More than 1000 men the rest surrendered at discretion. In the number of prisoners was Ali Pacha native of Napoli i Romania and vizier of trac Cala and Aslan a Tirzu a very enter prising albanian chief. The turks in
