Message of .the Gorernor.-We lay before
our readers to-day, the Message of Governor
Hammond. It is a carefully written -paper,
and' contains much matter for the serious con
'ideration of our readers. ..Many of the sag
gestions and recommendations are. important.
and if carried, t. doubtless, some of them
wvould conduc to'well-being and the pros

the Militia system, the State Arsenals, the Free
Schools, recommendations 'abo~ut Megisatrates,
Notary Public. and amendments of certain laws
now obscure, &c. Lastly, his Excellency
touches in a very straight forward and earnest
manner. npoh our Federal relations. We have
no doubt our Legislature wvill eive the greatest
and most careful consideration to the subjects of
which the Mlessage treats, especially thme last
They must bring to the task cool heads, stbt
hearts, and an unabletnchting firmitess i n thedis
charge of duty, leaving the consequences to
God. Fromi the character of the present Leg
islatutre, wve thtiuik that no rash or ill-timed ac
tion will be taken on the subject of the Tariff,.
The recomnmendation of the Governior with
regard to the Bank of the State, isol thegreat.
. . moment. nr readers are aware, that this
institution has been assailed in the boldest man
neri-nd very serious charges 'ave.somwetime
since, beptprefered against it it id vell% fr
our L9gislatnre to give maitera soite
ful. investigation. Ve trust,_ltowever ta,
nothing will.be done rashljorhita sf, else the
interests of theStite would be greatly endan
gered. By unwise and precipitate legislation
in the matter, not only Soufth Carolina bat the
property of all her citizens might' be jdoparded,
and desolation mighi folloiv where ther-is now
comparative prosperity. .The remarks of his
Excellency, with, regard. to the general educa
'jion of our citizens. are of lasting importance.
It is certainly much to be desired, that in a
-country like ours. where the people are free,
and themselves dictate their 'own laws, the
great mass if not all, should he well informed.
Liberty and security ran never long exist
among it- petpl,-, where general ignorance pre.
vails. The citizens will soon be --degraded
from tne rank of a people to that ora populace."
We trust that our Legislature will again and
again consider the subject of the common or
Free Schools, and never pause till they have
brought the system to Aomething like perfec
tion. We might onlar-ae upon this subject,
but we believe that the few hints which we
have thrown out, are sufficient. Before we
close we will notice one other topic in the Mes.
sage. His Excellency speaks of the ignorance
of the common Magistrates.and their irregular
distribution in - the Districts for which they
are commissioned Among other things, he
recommends that It "M1anual should be eam
piled and published, by the authority of the
State. explaining in a clear manner, the powers
ann dtiies of Magistrates. and prescribing the
.',ropver fiurmns of.proceedings in their Courts."
with a codifiriiion of the conrman and statute
laws, and reported decisions. Something like
this we are confident must be of grert utility
to these important publir officers, as well as to
the people at large. and we hope that this sug
gestion will be uttended to. We are aware.
that there are difficulties in the way. but we
believe t lint something beneficial could be done.
We will not prolong these imperfect.remarks.
but will conclude. redommending the Message
to the careftl perusal of our readers.
Large Turnips.-7-On Mlonday last we were
presented by Mr. John W. Munday, of tnis
District, with thice large. fine Turnips, avera

COLVUBiA, Nov. 2j9th, 1844.
)DEAR SIa: You have doubtless.rceeived the
Governor's Message. It is one of the ablest,
ifnot the very ablest Message which 'has ever
onanated from the Executive office of South
Carolina. Many new, practical, and highly
useful changes of the laws are recommended,
anid it is greatly to bie desired that thmey should
i'll be acted upon at an early period-if not at
the piesent. at least at the next sessiuon of the
Legislature. Biut there is o'ne featurre of this
able document. which can not meet the appro.
bation of the people or Legislatute of' Sputh
Carolina. I mean the indirect recommendation
of immuediate State actiotn ngaiinst 'the Tariff.
Good faith requires ,thtat we should await th'e
action or the new Administration, and the tri
nmphiant Demnecratic Republican Party. If
the Starte is to seperate her-self by ime~tediate
action from the party what f'olly to have ap
i-roved in jirimnary meetings, of time Baltimore
nonminations,'and what 'folly to east the vote of
South Carolin-i for. Polk and Dallas!
The S'enate :have unanimously adopted a
set of resolntions, introduced by Mr. Pickeni's,
dissenting fromr the Message. ~The subject is
at preset tunder discussion. (& past 1 o'clock,
P. M.,) in the Hptuse of Reptesentatives, in
(:ommittee of the 'Whole; Mr. Pinckney in
te Chair. '4 Mr. Fair's, Mr-. Sims', Mr. Meni
ininiger's-'and, the Resulittioins of the Senate are
before the Committee The Committee wvill
pibably recommend thie~latter to the.House.
Mr. Aiken of Charleston, Col Aliston of
Georgetown, Genl. Bumihanan of Fairfield, and
Mr. Seabrook o' Edisto, are candidates fur
Governor They all have thte'r active friends.
Mr. Aikea wvill probably be the next Governor.

unwise, and utterly at variance with the
.seniiments and wishes of the people of the
State,-svho had the best reasons i the
world, from -the- conduct of this party,
frotm the Baltimore Convention, to this
day, not toawitlhdraw that confidence un
tiLhe- party shewed by their future.acts
they were unworthy of it. While - r.
Pickens paid a deserved tribute to the
ability of the message, and to Gov. Ham
mond's known patriotism. lie was very
earnest in the expression of his opinions
that any thing having a tendency at this
time to State action was uncalled for, be
cause inhis judgment, all our wrongs
would be redressed by that party with
which we had lately acted. in elevating
Mr. Polk. as the free trade candidate to
the Presidency; and if we failed in this
hope, that we would stand justified be
fore the country, for our wisdom, forbear
ance andtnoderation; and that if in the
last sad resort the State should be -com
pelled to vindicale her rights. which, said
Mr. Pickens, may God in his mercy avert,
then we woild stand right before the
world and posterity.
After Col. Pickens bad sat down, Col.
McWillie rose and expressed. the most cor
dial approbatinn of the sentimetis of the
Resolutions, and his satisfaction that they
had been so opportunely introduced, as to
preventi the unfavorable impression that
might be drawn from the supposition that
the sentiments of the Governor were those
of the Sttte. Col. McWillie expressed
the hope that the Rosolutions would re
ceive the unanimous approval of ihe Se
Here are the Resolutions which were
ordered to be printed-, and made the order
of the day lir Thursday along with the
I. Resolved. That the State of South
Carolitia takes the deepest interest in the
annexation of Texas to thts Federal Union,
because we believe it essential to preserve
the peace and permanet independence of
the Confederacy, and that it must result
in'advancing tIe ultimate prosperity of
the whole cour.Iry.
2. Resolved. That the collateral issues
which have arisen in the progress of the
Texnn negotiation by the ohlicial commu
nication of L rd Aberdeen to the Federal
Goivernment, dated the 26th November,
1843. in which he announces that "Great
Britain desires, and is constantly exerting
herself to ptocure the general abolition
of slavery throughout the world." are of
such a nature as to make the annexation
of Texas a 'vital aid paramount question
at present to the people of South Carolina.
3. Resolved, That we look with confi
dence to.the recent election of a Republi
can President and Vice President, as giv
ing us a certain guaranty that all the Con
stitutional powers of the Government will
be exjerted to procure the immediate an
nexatioti of that Republic.
4. Resolved. Further, that the tariff of
1842 is unjttsi, oppressive, and against the
whole spirit of the Constitution, and that
the recent triumph of the Democratic Re
publican party has taken place under such
circumstances as to give us an unequivo
cal pledge that it is to be reduced to a reve.
nue stnudnrd, and -h1tn--irmormt.- nD-eco
nomical governtet, upon the general
principles of the compromise act of 1833.
5. Resolved, That if we should he dis
appointed in our jus.t expectations, we do
.not in the slightest d-gree, by waiting
events at present. waive the reserved
rights of the State in her sovereign calpa
city to protect her.eitizens in any future
emergency that may -rise.
As far ai I could judge. I am confident
t.hat these rebolutioas met the general ap
probation of the Seirators, and wvill receive
an almost utnauimous vote of the Senate.
