Being inadequate to Ca Scharge the demands upon it now Ihfe and that will become due on the february con ceiv3 it to be my imperative duty to Call the immediate attention of the be Gisl Twute to this subject it is almost superfluous to remark that the credit the the Honor of the state will All by deeply affected unless by the Rorr it action of the legislature this deficiency should be supplied. I Wou d be an everlasting stigma up on he fair Fame of Penns Lama if with her vast resources and her Abun Dant Means to perform All her engage should permit her creditors for single hour to Knock at the door of an empty Treasury. Every considerations of duty and of policy requires at the hands of the legislature and the executive the most the Public engage ments. Nothing is gained by postponing the time of action for it must eventually arrive. The policy is As unwise As the spirit is unworthy of statesmen to surrender to our Succes the performance of do tier that just by devolve on ourselves. I will proceed to Lay before you the in Uncial condition of the common wealth so far As it appears to me to be connect eco with your deliberations on subject i have de Rived most of my fiscal information from those official documents which before you and which Are part jumped to furnish accurate statements of he several Mitter i o which of they respectively relate i have so recently entered upon the discharge of the Duies of the office conferred upon me by the people that i do not pretend to possess the familiar practical of the financial concerns of the Cony Mon wealth that can Only be acquire Al by an Active official participation in All their detailed i devoted to the subject that careful and scrupulous attention due alike to is importance and to t in just expectation of the legislature that no execute e communication will be submitted to it in the accuracy of which Imph i Confidence May not be reposed. To present a full and satisfy tory View of the finances of the com Moui wealth i will Lay before you in entire amount of the Public debt composed of permanent teen Prary and conditional Loans to gather with the estimated value of the i Blic property consisting of stocks canals rail roads Viz a tests contracted for pub Lic improvements by canals and 32 Loans not relating to canals and rail Roada loan for Eastern Penitentiary by of 21st March 00 loan for Union canal company by act of 1st March 1833, 00 temporary loan by 16th june 1836, 00 temporary loan by act of 14th april 1838, 00 jets due on appropriations to Ous object ,86 debts due by appropriations internal i prov Emente 01 represented.

On no part of our system of improvements has Public opinion been More emphatically pronounced.

Uness the new works be repaired and in some places reconstructed before the Spring a or the sums appropriated have usually been exhausted before the nex meeting of the legislature and those engaged in the construction of ofor Public works have been compelled t6 make sacrifices to enable them to prosecute their labors or to dismiss of 201 65, has been contract de wit in the last three Jears exclusive of the hems above refined to and not charged t it is m inic to a from Ali s of the entire an out of the debts and in sources of the Commonwealth that Hei Means Are ample for All emergencies although a portion of the Public Pio Perty May not to rimmed Ulela available. The principal purpose of this Mes Sage is however to Call your attention to the present condition of the Finan Ces As exhibited by the following state ment of moneys now due or becoming due on the first of february next and immediately thereafter Viz Stock loan per act of 30th March 1824, payable 1st january 1839, 00 interest on permanent and temporary Loans 00 for Ordinary repairs on Public improvements 00 balance due of appropriations per act of 14th r april 1838 242 s64 23 them be again swept of to which perhaps May be added the sum Bor rowed for repairs of canal on Jumada Divi Sion. The legislature will also be required at its pre sent session to make provisions to pay the following Loans and demands on the trea sury due at the times specified Stock loan per act 30th March 1824 Doe 1st May next 7th dec. 1829 and 4th Jan. 1831 Lith april 1825, due 1st Jan. 1840.

Act 14th april 18 38, due before the 1st january 1840, interest on Loans due on or before the 1st aug. 1839, salaries of toll collect ors remainder of year due for repairs expenses of motive to w 00 9q 23 00 00 600000 00 us position h to l t a mated receipts into the trea n i i ii if u c present year with the of two items amounting to Are composed of the Ordinary of the state alone. It is Ren dered certain that the fourth instalment of the surplus Revenue from the Gene ral government will not be received nor will there be Bank bonuses or any other of those accidental and extraordinary Means of replenishing the trea sury to depend have pour into it seven millions of Dol Lars during the last free years. The state must rely henceforth on her fixed and certain but gradually inc casing Ordinary or Taxa Tion be deemed advisable to discharge All her liabilities and to Complete All her contemplated improvements. To do this but eng Hicen de Leo nov should be consulted in All her expenditures and these habits of lavish and ill judged appropriations engendered by the sudden and unexpected of Public Money i through coins which can Seldom if eve ii g in mini must be promptly Cor i. It is frequently in the Case of private individuals that the sudden acquisition of wealth is fatally injurious to the prudent habit Sand sound morals of the possessor. It is moire emphatically True m the Case of govern creeps in unperceived through a thousand channels and eats out the substance of the people be fore they Are aware of its Stealthy approach. Habits of improvident profusion grow fashionable which Are difficult to eradicate and those who recommend that they should be restrained in the slightest degree Are stigmatised As pair illiberal. At the Hazard even of incurring this would earnestly invoke your undivided Atten Tion to this Branch of our Public policy the enormous and unprecedented Defi Cit in the Treasury now to be supplied is an instructive commentary on its practical if the same policy that has brought us into this Dominion is persisted in it must effectually Para Lyme the energies of this great the Public debt must be an inordinate amount or the prosecution of our valuable system of Public improve ments must be suspended. You have already a balance to raise of More than dollars before you of 00 by Law Many i months elapse before legislative action can be had on the subject and before the negotiation of tie necessary loan when authorised tie work is frequently abandoned by t in contractor or his workmen have sought employment elsewhere and by the time the requisite funds Are of to Alfted operations Are to be commenced anew and thus it May be fairly assumed that our Public improvements have Cost perhaps thirty percent More than they would have done if timely provision to continue their prosecution been Mace. If the contractor knew beforehand what amount of Money he might rely upon As forthcoming wan acne make his arrangements accordingly to his own and the Public advantage. The Wori would Progress with greater facility and of consequence enable contractors to do it cheaper Anc Moie expeditiously than heir Totore. I the Public Faith Avo wild at All times be regarded As sacred and the contractors a class of men who have certainly had some cause to com Plain would be essentially benefited by the adoption of this policy and also the Nuhi Erous labourers and artisans by whose invaluable services our great been constructed would be in a Good degree secured from the suffering and destitution of often inflicted upon them by the fail u res of the contractors on our Public works. In order to remedy this state of things i future i beg leave to recommend to the legislature the enactment of a Law authorising the governor with the Sanction of the commissioners of the internal improvement i and canal commis Stanert or under such Othet checks As May be deemed advisable to borrow such sums of Money As May be found necessary to carry on the Sev eral lines of improvements until the meeting of the next legislature when Ever the appropriations to the same May to beco Ibel requiring of course that the Money so obtained be placed in t in Treasury of the disbursed and accounted for in the manner provided by Law. It would that the sum which night be so obtained should be unified to is reasonable1 amount and thai the rate of interest and of loan should be strictly defined. To seems that the adoption Oft any principles of act Iii relation of the legislature believing that its further prosecution at present is not warranted by either prudence or patriotism. Being decidedly in favor myself of a judicious and comprehensive system of Public improvements reaching All practicable Points and accommodating All actions of the Commonwealth the legislature in at the Earl St possible Day and would rejoice Woodcome instrumental in carrying Sulci system into speedy operation but finding the Treasury in a situation that seems to forbid All Hope of enga gig in that undertaking until our Fis Cal concerns Are restored to a sound a plying the funds of the common aim time to other works blurt the Mam lines and their immedi ats tribe us is it Emnot be Loi by fore the Oit diary Revenue Fiona the tolls of the Cha land All the expenses necessary to i sep them in repair and pay the inter est of the Money expended in their construction.

Cannot close this Brief reference to Ioor system of Public improvements without inviting attention of the legislature to two subjects., which Tib ugh not in mediately connected with the leading object of this communication Are yet so essentially Newessa ry1 to the full it i Tion of the benefits to b e derived from our main lines of Ca nals and rail Road Between the Eastern Anc Western sections of the common wealth As to awaken the Earnest solicitude of every True i allude to the removal of the of Strcic tons to Steamboat navigation on the Allegheny Ohio Jand Mississippi no from Pitts big to the Gulf of mexi co and from Pittsburg up the Allegheny As far As the same May be fount practicable by the Survey authorized under direction of the general govern and to the construction of a continuous rail Road from the City of Pitts Birg through or near the capitals o Indiana and Illinois to some Point on the Mississippi River at or near St. Louis. I the completion of those import tint undertakings a great amount of of cosiness Jot old be at once thrown upon our improvements. The merchandise of various kinds from the f astern states the tolls on out be so Nichte in Billy sus Tain the less profit fail portions of Ooi rendering it necessary to the slightest addition to the state debt or to any of the Burthen imposed on the people. The Trade o growing prosperous cities of Philadel shia and Pittsburg would be immense y a multiplied and the Southern aut Western states themselves now feeling the a fico such mediums of communication w an unparalleled extent would receive impulse of an influx peace upon their Prosperity Anc greatness. A glance at the map of the Union we convince every Man of the importance of these improvements to Pennsylvania As Well to the vast regions of the country of unsurpassed Mineral wealth which i would ind the Cana s and rail roads of their direct highways to in order to Cairy i to effect the views herein expressed i respect fully recommend the propriety of adopt ing tie proper Steps to enlist the Gene ral government in the object of Clear ing out the obstructions to Tion of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers by steam boats from Pittsburg i hic is a of entry to the guff of co and also from Pittsburg up Tho Allegheny to such Point As May be fixed in the Survey by a of Congress As the termination o steam navigation. The prosecution of such works As these National government directly and properly within the legitimate Power according to the strictest interpretation of the Constitution.
