meet our olliations on th" one hand and the
irnp,)sing sn over burden of taxation upon this
State on the other, I sliall. for one, postpone
(lie ititerest ol I be State. I trust in God, Mr.
President tl.at my apprehensions may be
groundless, and that Some measure may be de
vised which will save i s fiom that calamity
which Senators here call repudiation, Lul
which is at last but an inability Id pay liabili
ties inconsiderately and recklessly incurred,
snd I plege myself here to-day to the zealous
support of any measure which gives s reason
able hope of escape from baukruptcy snd repu
diation. But, sir, I feel the full force of the
difficulties that beset us snd I think that every
Senator on this floor who has reflected upon
tlie suhject, must admit that lliey are seiious
if not appalling. We have yet lo consider on
this floor this very question of the State's finan
ces; we hare yet to find s solution of this
problem, how we shall meet the liabilities of
the Slate, and above all questions, we have to
consider whether we can meet them at all.
Let us ditrmine this point before we repeat
our promises. It is well enough for Senators
to d -claim about the reputation of the State
and her honor, but all such declamation pre
supposes mat we can pay ; tlie very question
we have yet to consider. Is any Senator on
this floor in possession of tlie necessary statist i-
c.tl intorinat:on to enable him to say with con
fidence :hat two or even three per cent tpon
tue taxable property ot (ins Mate will raise
sufficient revenue to redeem these proposed
ph-tlgeerV Sir, I hsve upon my desk the re
port of the Public Tressurer, in which he states
that tlie entire amount of the revenue raised
during the past fiscal year, (000,000) will be
required to defray ibe ordinary expenses of the
government ; be admits thst not on cent cau
be spared towards paying toe interest oo the
old debt, and he admits inferentially too, thai
diior's report hi also ptfn my owsw,
er sir, from it, no information to guide me in
this Invesligai ion. IU states distin. Uy that he
can form no correct ides of the amount of the
taxable proper of the Slate, while the Treasur
er gives it as his opinion that the real estate
tesied by the tax assessment relumed, will
not exceed 90.OCO.000 dollars, s fslling off of
more then one third from its value as estima
ted on this Hoof when the present revenue law
was framed. You were working in tho dark
this law was liameo. you uie not more
enlightened now, and still you promise and re
i.ioniisc to tisv this money. What if it should
n.rn out that it required three per cent upon
all the taxsble property ot "he Stale to meet
these ..pledges and supply the wants of the coun
ties. ill the Senators who support these reso
lutions vote I hat um t Are they prepared to
say now that they will do il ? If not, let them

Mr. Lindsay. (Republican.) said he re
gretted that the consideration of these reso
lutions had been forced upon the Senate to
day. He was constrained to believe that
the Senate had no idea of carrying oat iu
good faith the declarations of these resolu-
tiWhs ; they are not willing lo vote fur the
tax to meet the requirement of the resolu
tions ; he looked upon the whole thing as a
mere farce. Some of the Senators who have
spoken before m in favor of these resolu
tions, who have hooted at the idea rif repu
diation, talked about the dishonor of renu
tios, and those very men , who sing that
song, have by their own actions alresdy in
flicted upon North Carolina the disgrace of
repudiation. It Would have been well for
them to have thought about it then. They
repudiated bonds at their last session amount

in holy horror when snytbing is said about

"that we pledge ourselves to pu sue a eourse
of economy" How can you vote for that
clause when a proposition to reduce the per

General Assembly was voted down"? That
looks like gegiuuing to economise; you
make your pledge about economy and pass
yonr pajter resolutions, but the people will
require sometainc more substantial. He

Trustees), in a Pastoral Letter. For various
reasons hut few Parishes responded, and very
little was given. The hope is earnestly cherish -uhed.
that this mar not be the case again.
Abricf statement of the condition, wants and
claims of the "University " must suffice for our j
present purpose. The nnionkDepartment was i
opened in Heptombcr, 186d. The close of the
first year found the number of students, i nearly
one hundred ), too large for the aorommodsrions
provided. In view. of thia state of things, s
mcssnre of success simost unexampled in any
similsr undertaking the Board, at Its 1st
meeting, appointed a special agent, the Rev. 0.
P. Thaekara, of Florida, lo raise, hy peraonsl

ara has onneentcd, though at much sacrance, to I
undertal'! the work. He is eminently fitted for
it, snd earnestly commended to von in its pros-1
ut ion. 1 he oluect of hi mission, however, is
entirely distinct from the "annual University Of

vidiiaJs will dot hi lew come in the course of time
to the aid of the "University ." But upon these
we cannot rely to meet the pressing nerew-ities
of its early growth which have been mentioned.
It is rather to a steady stream of contribution
irom me members snd Triends of the Church
throughout our borders that we must look, snd
on this we hopefully snd confidently relv.' To
this end the plan of the "Advent Offering" was
proposed snd sdopted. Whether large orsmall
in sny place, it will nevertheless help to swell
the general amount which is now, and will con
tinue to be, so much nc. did. Of the original
Mibseription of about four hundred thousand
dollars, but little wc fear, can now be collected.

extent upon ourselves. And as we ought to do
Hjly o we ltclkve with the rapidly returning
piwperffv ofotir people, their common oblira
tion in this important behalf will be met iu an
nually increasing measure.
Tiie general plsn of the rmrersity.aieinljod
led in the Constitntion snd Statutes was intend
ed to combine the best features of those vr.nt
Schools of Learning in Ihe old world which have
so long flourished, as well as of the best in our
own country. And in its leligious aspect at
it is developed with time and ample endomeits,
it will dmibtless mark a new era in the history
of American University education. Though now
in iu infancy, the Faculty is believed to be equal
to that of any Institution of corresponding age
and numbers to be found. The Trustees are de
termined to reach the highest possible standard
of scholarship in teachers sad pupils alike. Any
existing defects growing nut of oar limited means
and the rapidity with which the School has fill.
ed up, will be remedied as speedily as possible.
The character of the Bowl of Trustees, compos,
ed as it is of the Bishops, and of one Clergymas
and two Laymen, elected trl-ennially by the
Convention of the several Dioceses, should in
spire confidence, as furnishing every reasonable
guaranty of efficient oversight, and s spirit of
devotion to the advancement of the Church in
.iiiiij .inn me oesi interests oi tne young,
Every facility possible, as our means permit,
will be extended to the sons of the Clergy.
They are now received at half the usual rates of
tuition, and much more will be done for them
hereafter. In the Theological Department, as it
is built up in the future, will be found one of
me hkw important aids to the growth of the
church in oar widely extended field. But we
can not dwell on these points at further length.
The cause of the "University" is the cause of all
the Dioeeset interested in the work. Of its im
portance to the Church and the rising genera
tion, too much can not be said. Catholic in
spirit, comprehensive in scope, and elevated in
its aims, it is worthy of the Church, deeigued to
meet the highest educational wants of our peo
ple, and is one of the first necessities of the
times. It hss survived a state of things which
not only suspended all effort, but seemed for a
;rnd'ntbe Ule"n'o7r5fa 4MHf.
final success, such as was at first anticipated by
the Fathers who led the way, hot are fallen as
leep Polk, and Elliott, and Otey, snd Cobb-,
ana Rntledge final socoess, such as they anti
cipated, will be placed beyond all peradventure.
It may not be seen to the full, and will not in
our day ; but our children and onr children's
children will gather there in tlie time to come
to rejoice in the light thereof, snd bless - the
memories of t ho.-e who laid its foundations.
The foresight which selected for the "Univers
sity" the beautiful plateau of the Cumberland
range, will be appreciated more and more as Its
unsurpassed advantages are developed in the
future. Two thousand feet above the level of
the sea, gently undulating, with numerous
springs of purest water, a most salubrious climate-,
a rich forest growth, inexhaustible quan
tities of stone, and coal in abundance accessi
ble by railroad to all parts of the couutry, and
yet iii its healthful isolation exempt from those
Mnpiai ions to dissipations snd vice in Ihe young
which elsewhere so generally abound, there to
probably no locality on the continent better ad
apted to' the permanent growth and success of
such an institution.
We can only commend, in conclusion, to yonr
fostering sympathies and generous support, thia
