In this fearful state of affairs i Felt it my duly to Issue of railing on All the civil Aat hotties to exert them sch is for the Rosto Rioa of Tate and order and on the militia to keep themselves in mutant readiness to March loth 3 seat of government to suppress the Vio Lence. I also issued an order on the major i to neral of the first division of state militia to March his command to Ham Amburg Forth with and made a requisition on the commanding officer Ollie u. S. Troops at Carlisle to bring his Force to the Aid of the constituted authorities at Ifcic same Tuno Tho president of Tho med of was informed of the state of Ai fairal and required to take such Steps under the fourth Section of the fourth article of the con stir lion of the United Tes As might seem proper Truta last named measure was adopted tint1 if matters proceeded to extremity it might appear thai every proper and possible precaution had Bujen resorted Toby Tho executive. The result of these several applications Are . With regard to that made to the Federal government t will not new speak than to say that having made it in the Tegjula and constitutional discharge of official duty bound As chief magistrate of Penn protest against the reception it met wih Anu the highly improper reply made to t. ?ortun4tely, however the Appeal made to the quiz ii soldiers of Tho Commonwealth was heard without doubt of its necessity or delay of title deeds and the sacredness of All rights will be Only nominal. Might will be right and the and the timid slaves the evil effects of the late disorder will 1 fear be immediately Felt in the pecuniary credit of the Commonwealth unless you her representatives act promptly and efficiently. Well May capitalists and creditors doubt the Faith of a Community to them when that Community is faithless to its own Dearest rights. It there fore becomes your imperative duty gentlemen not Only toy our posterity and majesty of Tho Laws but to yourselves and your n immedi ate interests to say to the world that similar outrages shall not again take place and that what has happened is the work of Only a few desperate men and not of the people of this great state. This it seems to me can be accomplished by the enactment of severe Laus Gamst All riotous or violent proceedings at the seat of government during the session of the legislature and by compelling the county 01 counties whose citizens shall be originators or ringleaders of such proceedings to paly All the loss caused by them and expense incurred in their suppression. It also be prop i to reuse the acts of Assembly relative to election re turns and to Render the Mode of making them so Plain that no one can mis understand or evade them. In their existing shape there is some difficulty in arriving at the True intent of the legislature. In the present Case i have not the slightest doubt but that the duties of the proper executive officer u Ith regard to the disputed performed. But such vital import be rendered perfectly Plain and Shadow of doubt removed. I am Clear in the opinion that the a holc of the late difficulties arose from return judges assuming Power Nevei intended to be delegated to them. They Are merely ministerial officers. Their duty Only clerical and consists exclusively in adding up and declaring whole vote polled for each Candi Dato within their District and making return thereof to the proper officer. The the District who shall have All adj voted at election and not by the or affirmation of the party himself and that the party himself shall be obliged to swear of of ice unwed that his tide in that particular remove into it for the purpose of of Taaning a vote therein. There could be hardship in such provisions nor could they de Pivic any of then just rights in As much As no one pos Sibly reside Dunn ten Daya in one District without such fact being known to at least one of its resident citizens neither would it be oppression to in que disinter vesled proof of actual in Sidere in the Mode proposed because it would Only be demanding the Best proof the nature of the question admits of which is done in Ever o her Cue equally stuck proot of the assessment and pay ment of taxes should he exacted in ally instances.
