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. ; With respect to the loss of the building itself, it is my Jninion. fortified bv that of better i adores, that, under II r.irr.iimRtanrpR. it is not to be considered as a pub- , , ' I CI 1 a. ,J . . 4 y. . ,m thn AAnntfiin i-c calamity, oucn were uie ueieuus m wiuui,- "ion of the old walls, erected in 1791, that it is very tprobable that a part ofthe building would have fallen in a few years, and perhaps caused the death of many of the assembled Representatives. j I Immediately i after the destruction of the State 1 tt j i ; CiU tk.,4-.: r., k i 1 1 1 1 1.-". iif: imii urifLT.-i mjij iji i in i i tjsu v in iuii i iiui uii Oircomnaring the votes with the record kept by in ".this city, with a" public spirit which reflects great .wr-wi-K "there was one vole ' more than the names i credit upon their liberality, tendered the use of their '' : , mi i. .mt. cm. i,t:m.nii KoPieetiner house for the accommodation of the House of r.

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 111 safer hands.

' Among the distinguished feiessings deri ' edfromtae establiahraentoftne indepejnderice oi our .antry, may justly be enumerated ttiei 11 ee election nd constitutional meeting of the Representatives of iople. Selected from every section ofthe State, Accurately acquainted with the occurrences which "have taken place in their respective- districts, lami l:ar. with the condition of their constitaents and com '3;;"tothe seat of government clothed with ample powers to remedy the grievances under which tne people labor, they present one ofthe most cheering and teresting characters of our peculiar form of govern ment. Assembling under such circumstances, when Ye are assured that crops of all kind have been ahun (;'int, and tnat the means of subsistence, and comfort rc thereby secured to every citizen ofthe State, and hen ihc ordinary share of healtli crowns our enjoy ments, we have abundant reason to be thankful to -e Almighty Ruler ofthe Universe for these inesti mable blessings, and to pray that they may be con tinued to us, and perpetuated to our children. The satisfaction which 1 should have felt n-meet- 'tlg With thff Lp.rriclatnro e lUi timo iio c-Amoirh-i . ted-by the accident that caused the destruction of tTtte House, which had been repaired in a faith- certified and subscribed by the Secretary and coun tersigned by the President' The last General As sembly having 1 ailed to elect a Board lor Internal Im provements, there ia no authority for drawing out t any-part ol tlie fund, i he payment of the subscrip tion on behalf of the State to the Cape Fear Naviga tion Company, the Catawba Navigation Company, and some others, has been demanded. The instal ments on., these subscriptions have heretofore been 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 the Government. 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 disposition.

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 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.

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 ing primary objects for the consideration ol; theLegis lature, I have declined making recommendations, 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 rokee nation of Indians, that remain within the limits of North Carolina. I am unwilling, however, to doer this communication without adverting to the administration of the General Government of the United States, "and congratulating you upon the pros perous condition of our national concerns.
