THE GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE.
Our renden had before them, in our issue of
yesterday, the well considered Message,of His
Excellency Governor Omi to the General As
sembly of tho State, and have given to it,
doubtless, the consideration to which such an
utterance in the present interesting condition of
affairs is justly entitled. The tone of it is not
particularly joyous or exhilarating. His Ex
cellency seems fully impressed with the respon
sibilities of our present position lind the some
what gloomy aspect of our material and politi
cal fortunes; but with calmness and courage he
looks the conditions fairly in the face, and witta
much of judgment and prudence presents to
the consideration of the Legislature a graphic
statement of affairs, and the measures which
in his judgment seem best suited to meet the
requisit.ion_of the time.
His suggestions in reference to the District
Courts wo think aro eminently just, it may
be true that they will answer a valuable pur
pose in the judicial economy of the State, but
it is not certain that they will do ao. They arc
the introduction of an anomaly into that sys
tem; they break upon the uniformity of com
mon law proceedings; and as the State has al
ready boen under the necessity of abandoning
a similar departure in the old County Court
system, it is not certain that wo will not find it
proper to do so again. It is at leapt important
that there should be no constitutional impedi
ment to the changes which our experience may
show to be proper and important, and it is wise,
therefore, that the Legislature should make
provision for a change in the Constitution upon
this subject; and that if it should so occur at
the expiration of another year that these Courts
bave not performed thoir functions, it may then
be possible to make the alterations which our
better judgment and experience may suggest.
With respect to the propriety of making
aew assessments for the value of lands and
.own and city lots, with a view to more equal
taxation, we presume there can be little ques- ?
.ion. Nor, if it be conceded that there is a nc
.cssity for larger receipts into the treasury,
:an it be questioned that the objects of taxa- 1
ion indicated by His Excellency, and the
nodes of imposition suggested, arc eminently ]
?roper. It is not certainly apparent, however,
.hat larger receipts, or very much larger re- (
:eipts at least, than those resulting from the
istablished rates of taxation, are indispensable.
[f there be an accruing interest upon the Stato
lebt, not met by the present receipts, it is cer
tainly a question whether the better interests
jf the country would not be consulted by incot
ng that excess with further bonds or other
ibligations of the State. It is, of course, dc
lirable to meet it with funds, and to give to the
.redit of the State whatever advantage may
.csultfrom the prompt payment of its accruing
nterest, but at the present time it is vastly im-'
.ortant to spare the people of this State as
mich as possible with the burthens of taxation, t
Umosl our only hope for a recovery from the <
.resent depressed condition of affairs is in the t
iccurrcncc of a larger population, and in the _
nauguration and establishment of new enter- i
irises of other lines of business. To these j
he discouragement of heavy taxation will be
.cry great. Already the pressure is severe, c
,dded to our contributions to the State, the t
icavy exactions by our town governments, and
he Government of the United States. Every
orm of property, or of industrial activity, are
earched out, and men inclined to locate their
?ntcrpriscs in this State will hesitate to do bo, t
f there be tho probability that such pressure
>f taxation will bo increased. "Of alternative's,
hcrefore, unpleasant aa it may be, it would
eem to bo the best to adapt ourselves to our
.strieted fortimes; conduct the State upon lim
ted appropriations; meet accruing interest as
.est we can by other formj.of obligation, and
inering to interests inclined to a location here
vhatever of inducement there may be in the
issurancc that they may live under the taxa
ion they will encounter.
As with respect to accruing interest, so,
ilso, we think it should be with respect to the l
principal, and though it would ccrtninly be
lcsirablc to have a sinking fund, the time is not
propitious now for lhe inauguration of such an '
institution. And inclined to whatever of ccon- (
?my may be consistent with an honest dis- 1
charge of obligation.?, wo would certainly com- *
mend the proposition to scale tho debts of the '
State contracted by the war, in accordance '
with the rule suggested by the Convention in 1
transactions between individuals. 1
Upon tho subject of tho distresses of our '
people, and*thc proposition to supply them with '
provisions, His Excellency, impressed with its '
painful character, hut nlso with the difficulties '
of alleviation, has no distinct measure to pre- (
sent, and all who speak upon the subject must '
labor under a similar embarrassment. Misfor- I
tune is the common lot. Calamities have como '
so thick upon us that few have anything but
sympathy to offer. And while there can be no
question that something should b . done, it is
difficult to Ray what can be done that will not
occasion injuries as great as arc tho sufferings
to be alleviated.
His position upon tho Constitutional Amend
ment will doubtless moct tho approbation of our
readers; and to tho sentiment that if that
Amendment be adopted it shall be dono by the
.?irr?pressible conflict of numbers," there will
bo, we presume, an unanimous response. Wo
have dene enough to show our readiness to
concur honestly in the formation of a Union,
if that bo possible; but if it be the purpose, as
it unquestionably is tho purpose, to exercise
authority over us, and to indicate, by acts that
do not admit of question, the purposo to hold
us in subjection, it is certainly more manly and
quite as wise, va think, to submit lo euch con
il it Lou without voluntary c?'orts to concur in
such u consummation.
One hopeful view, however, is presented in
the more promising condition of our industrial
interests. It ia Tory clearly intimated (hat the
labor operations of our country, however un
fortunate the results, have been more BUCOCse
ful than might have been anticipated. And if
this be so, mid if there be the possibility of a
fair pvosecufion of our material interests, we
have the assurance that, under ordinary cir
cumstances, we eau make provision fur comfort
and Individual well-being; and these secured,
willi proper aims and purpose-", und proper
dispositions toward each other, wo 111113' attain
to a social condition us commendable as that to
be found in most other countries, whatever b<*
the depths to which our political forlunea mar
THE WOMEN'S BIOIITS CONVENTION.
Our telegraphic dispatches, some days ago,
mentioned that the above-named body met at
Albany, New York, on the 20th inst. Reside?
many olhcr old ladies present, we sec the
names of 1'ahkkii Pillsuuhy, Mr. or Mrs.
Blackwall (we cannot tell which, from the
report before us), and the inevitable PttBOKBICK
Douglass. Of course every one of these seer
csscs had her say, and every one of 1 hem harp
ed on the question of suiTragc. In former
meetings of this kind, the clergy were the chief
target at which all the sharp lingual missiles
were aimed. St. Paul used to be voted an old
fogy, and the Fathers all no better than so
many ninnies. The Apostles, Oiihikn and
St. Jeuome, aro at last permitted to rest in
pence, and the politicians are the scupegouts
now. Every party come in for its Bharc of
The Rev. Oltmpia Brown denounced as
"swindling reformers all who claim to be the
friends of progress and yet would deny the
right of suffrage to womnn." The Radical
leaders, botli in England and America, arc
soundly rated for their cry of ''manhood" suf
frage. "Wc want universal sufTragc," quoth
the politician in petticoats, "without distinc
tion of sex or color." The lady orators arc
decidedly personal in their remarks, and call
names very freely-true to tho instincts of
nature, combatting men rather than principles.
They passed several dozens of resolutions,
Ihe burden of all of which is suffrage or rep
resentation. The causo is looking up, they
jay ; but it behooves its advocates to work dili
gently, to make common cause with the negro,
ind not to rest till all shall have the privilege
)f the ballot, and man and woman, white and
black, all shall go to Congress. Why not? If
.olorcd gentlemen can represent the people of
Etoxbury in the Legislature, why should color
id ladies not go to Congress from any of the
rue blue districts in rural Now York ? These
lltra she-Radicals aro opposed to any educa
.ional test; for, say they, "the untutored negro
?vas loyal to the Union, when the educated
?Vest Pointer proved a traitor."
Of course it is all right. Women ought to
-otc, and have conventions, caucuses, barbe
mos, and whatever else they want. To be
?ure wc are only a recent convert, and as yet
lot entirely above an occasional doubt or mis
giving. Wc arc almost ashamed to say it, but
itill the most ungallant questions will obtrude
hcmselves: Who attends to the baby? and
vho-?-sews on the shirt buttons? Have
hese ladies no "mission" at home ? or is it bc
;ausc they have no home, and other endcariug
ics, that wc have these indecent public exhi
litioiiB ? That any woman of honest heart and
veil regulated mind ever takes part in such
irocccdings we do not believe. The grudual
icquiesccncc in these pretensions, on the part
if many leading men and public journals in
he North, is only another sign of the total
ubversion of tho old foundations in politics,
norals, and religion, and clearly denotes a
.radual advance toward an entire disintegration
?f civil society, in the old christian sense of

Mr. Bricht has gone over to Ireland to stir
