ful and masterly manner, and nearly completed, un
der the provisions ofthe act of the last session. By
this casualty the State has been deprived ofthe con
venient halls provided lor the accommodation ofthe
Legislative Ixxly, together with the adjoining offices
and the public Library. The. fine marble statue
of Washington, by Canova, has also been much mu
tilated, and a considerable portion of the ornaments
and furniture ofthe building has been destroyed. The
injury to the Statue is to be regretted as it was the
work of an artist of great celebrity, now no more: But
the memory of Washington, the "father of his country,
will live in the hearts and recollections of all who
love liberty, in every part ofthe globe, and needs no
artificial monument to revive or to perpetuate the
glory of his achievements.

Without determining positively in this case, but
leaving the members to aecide hereafter for themselves,
I have considered it my duty, under existing circum
st nces to make a temporary preparation, and to ten
der the Government House to the Legislature, which,
being the property of the State, may probably be so
altered as to answer the purpose of holding their ses
sidn, until an appropriation shall be made, and a suit
able building erected. In tMis arrangement, my on
ly object has" been to provide for your comfort during
the session. 1 have totally disregarded my own con
venience, in order that, by tendering the Government
House, I might be enabled to accommodate the Le
gislature in the best possible manner the nature of
the case will admit.
In relation to our internal concerns, I have to ob
serve, that it would be impossible to conceal from the
world, and needless to disguise from ourselves, the
fact, that a certain class of the population ofthe State
have become more discontented: and ungovernable
than heretofore. Fanatics of their own complexion.

tents, and have incited them, in many instances, to
enter into, conspiracies dangerous to the peace and
safety ofthe country. To guard against these evils,
which in all probability will continue, the utmost cau
tion and prudence are necessary. Restrictive laws
have been enacted without producing the desired ef-
lect ; and the crimes committed in a late insurrection
in an adjoining State, would seem to require further
and early attention to this subject Instead of mul
tiplying severe and sanguinary laws to operate upon
those who know little, and care less, about them.
would it not be advisable to establish a more efficient
and accountable police, and to arm and equip one or
more companies of volunteers or detached militia, in
each county, to be called .out when required, and to
be paid while in actual -service ? It is believed that
such a force, in aid ofthe civil authority, would etfec
tually secure the peace ofthe country; and fhe pub
lic arms 'belonging to the State could not be placed

and some others, has been demanded. The instal

paid from this fund, but as there was no authorityT for
disbursing the money, 1 have refused to grant; war
rants for the sums so due. These subscription, how
ever, are debts voluntarily contracted by the Stater
and their payment should be provided lor.
Another subject demanding your attention is the
situation of the fund6 of the iState, invested in the
Banks. The time is near at hand when the :char-
Lters ofthe several Banks in this State will expire.
I he stock held by the State Jm the State Bank of
North Carolina, has for some time past only yielded
an interest of four per cent, per annum; the stock held
by the State in the Bank ot Cape Fear h:is, for the
last two years, yielded an interest of only three per.
cent, per annum ; whilst the stock held by the IState
in the Newbern Bank has not, for nearly three years,
yielded any interest. The period will shortly arrive
when all these Banks are authorised by law to make
a division of part of their capital stock. Thefunds
vested by the State in these Banks amount to seven
hundred and twelve thousand seven hundred dollars,
($712,700.) This amount of stock, at the common
interest of six per cent., ought to produce forty two
thousand six hundred and seventy-two. dollars ($ 42.
672) annually; whereas, in fact, it produces only
eighteen thousand five hundred and sixty-two dollars,
($ 18,262,) not equal to threeper cent.
The Treasurer's Report, which will be laid before
you, will show that, owiag to the large amount of
Treasury notes redeemed this year, the taxes collect
ed will fall short of meeting the current expenses of
Under these circumstances, would it not be advisa
ble to provide for the establishment of a new Bank,
in which the funds of the State may be invested,
under-such regulations as to your wisdom and expe
rience shall be deemed safe and proper? Or shall
the State rely,'for the accommodation of its-citizens
and for a circulating currency, upon that portion of
the capital ofthe United States' Bank which has al
ready, or may hereafter be allotted to their office of
discount in North Carolina?
I would willingly bring to your notice the impor
tant object of opening a navigable communication be
tween the waters of the Albemarle Sound and the
Atlantic Ocean, north of Cape Halt eras, and would
recommend the application ol all tne means in your
power towards its accomplishment; but believing
that, without the aid of ,H he General Govern
ment, thf resources cf the State arc inadequate
to the undertaking at thi3 time, and the latt General
Assembly having urged upon our members of Con
gress the propriety of ,cjaiming that aid, we must
console ourselves with the hope that this great nation
al work will receive the sanction and support of the
ftatkmal Legislature. Having bestowed such im
mense sums towards the construction of roads and
canals in other States, it is. believed that this desirable
object, sj essential to; the interests of North Carolina
and otlihe Union, will not long be overlooked or ne
glected. The Literary F'jnd will claim and receive your
fevorable attention. The Report of the Public
Treasurer will afford you precise information
with regard to the amount of cash in his hands, and
the situation of-that portion ofthe fund which is not
available. It is probably known to all of you that the
14-ustees of the University did not accept the loan
offered them by the last Legislature from this source
so that the whole remains subject to future legislative

add, that a map of North Carolina being nearly com

to cancel these obligations in the manner they deserve.
Since the! adjournment ofthe last Assembly, I have
received communications from the Governors of seve
ral Stales, with a request that they should le sub
mitted for your consideration. Those from "Maine
relate to the North Eastern boundary of the United
States to the Tariff of 1828; and the power of the
General Government to make appropriations for in
ternal -improvements. Those from Vermont relate
loan amendment of the Constitution ol the United

Those from! Massachusetts relate to the organization
ofthe militia, and to the proceedings of the govern

ofthe United States. Those from Ohio relate to the
power Ofthe General Government to make appropria
tions in aid ofthe Colonization Society. Those from
Delaware relate to. the public lands of the United
States ; to the surviving officers and soldiers of the
Revolution; to the Tariff and internal improvements;
and to the nomination of a President of the United
tates. These several communications will be found,
with their appropriate endorsements, in. a file now

Believing that this Assembly will har ; much to
do in providing for the security ofthe peove ; in pro
viding for its own future accomodation and for the
establishment of a new Bank, or so directing the ap
plication of banking capital, as to secure a sound cir
culating currency ; and in preventing the injury to
individuals, which must otherwise follow, when the
charters of the present banks shall expire these be

which I had contemplated, relative to the situation of
the University and the establishment of common
schools, and to the condition of that portiop of the Che

of North Carolina. I am unwilling, however, to
