END OF THE ENGINEERS' STRIKE.

neers on the leased lines of the
Pennsylvania Company is at an end.
On five.railroads centering at Chics
go, namely, the Chicago, Milwaukee
and fit Paul, the Chicago and North
wcstern.the Rock Island and Pacific
the Burlington and Quincy, and the
Michigan Central.the reduction that
was proposed to be made on 1st of
January has been abandoned, 6r at
least deferred. This was all the
engrrieers'a'sked, and they have' car
rid their point without resorting to
a strike.; On the Chicago and-Alton
road the -system of running - by the
mile has been adopted,1 which gives
the engineers in some cases more
wages Hum they had before.' Oa the
Lake Shore and Michigan Southern
Railroad, we have the authority of'

notice after the 1 st of February the
pay of the engineers will be raised

is aanouaeed and. -confirmed that

To the Sixty-first General Assembly.
Fellow citizens of the General As
in accordance with the Constitu
tion, yon., have - assembled for the
pnrpose'ci enacting laws. to . protect
society and to promote the best in
terest, of th &ua.-Tis. paopie
have imuocaed udoh vou, their rep
reseniatives. a erave j-esponsibllity,
and they justly look to you for wise,
judicious ana patriotic iegiiu.uuiviu
return, for their generous confidence.
1 trust they will not be disappoin
ted. . ., .. , ,
I congratulate you that Ohio,dur
ing tbe(past yeir, has been exempt
from the curse of war, violence, pes
tilence and lamine ; that our citizens
unmolested and uninterrupted, in
health and happinessjiave been per
mitted to persue the avocations . of
civil lire, while the earth has yield
ed abundant harvesta,and all depart
ments of business have for the most
part prospered. It is to be regret
ted, however,, that within the last
three months, capital and labor "have
been embarrissed and distressed;
that workmen have been thrown out
of e'mulovment. and that those who
have abundant means are for the
time powerless to help, them. It is
difficult to account satisfactorily, for
the wide" spread financial trouble
which. now assails the whole counr
try. . Our agricultural, manufaatur-
insr and.minins industries have been
unusually prosperous during the
past twelve months, and the close of
the year has aggregated tair returns
to investments in business enterpri
ses of every description. . : Our com
merce is once more assuming im
portance pa the sea,and our exports
are approximating more nearly in
value to the imports than at any
time since the late war; and yet we
are in the midst of finanoial crisis
approaching almost to panic, ; It is
believed the explanation of this state
of things is to be found in the vici
ous system of speculation, which,
hazardous in it ventures and reck
less of consequences, employs capi
tal not its own in questionable and
worthless schemes, gambles in cor
ners made by the stock-jobbers, and
seeks its profit in the distress and
ruin of honest men. These gamblers
control largely the. money market;
they advance or kwerrthe price of
gold and or stocks to suit their own
purposes; they do not shrink from
great risks, because they employ the
means f other men; they nave : no
dread of debts, because they never.
expect to pay them. The whole ays
tern of wild speculation on borrowed
capital is pernicious in its influence
and disastrous in its effects, it in
duces dishonesty and promote - ex
travagant habits. It ought to be
discouraged, and as far as possible,
But whatever may be the cause of
the present financial pressure, it is
certain that it exists; and it is an
important part of your duty, gentle
men of the General Assembly, by
the strictest economy in all expendi
tures authorized by you, to relieve,
so far as you may be able, the bur
dens of the people. .

It will be observed by reference
o the above figures, that while the
State debt has during the past year
been reduced f 372,484 27, the local
mdebtne8s has increased $2,442,574
35. And yet the taxes levied for all
State purposes(cxdusive of the 1,
500,000 levied for support of com
mop schools, and which goes direct
ly back to the counties to be expend
ed), amounts to only $3,977,858 25.
This same includes all the expendi
tures for building and maintaining
our public institution, the payment
of interest on the btate debt, the re
duction of the debt, the cost of the
Executive, Legislative, and Judicial
deportments 'of the State govern
ment, and all expenses incident to
tbe management or state affairs. On
the other hand, the levy for county
and local purposes (including that
ror common schools,) amounts to
$22,153,493 98. In other words,the
levy for State purposes is less than
one sixth of the entire taxation, and
that fo.' county and local expenses
more than five-sixths. There is cer
tainly a great disparity between the
tw) classes of expenditures, and I
submit for tbe consideration of til 8
General Assembly, whether it would
not be wise to restrict,by legislative
enactment, the power of minor poli
tical organizations to create debts
and impose taxes. The people nat
urally complain of their burdens,
when the annual or semi annual pay
ments of tax bills are made, and but
few stop .to inquire, or consider
whether the bills are on accoant of
local affairs, under levies made for
county, city,and school district pur
poses, or ror the state . at large. 1
commend this subject to your atten
tion. - ' - ..-
Upon examination itjwill also be
found that there is a remarkable dif
ference between the expenses of the
several counties, for the very same
purposes, where there ought to be
substantial agreement; all of whicn
could possibly be remedied by legis
lation. . ;; . :, ; j - .1
When laborers are oat of employ
ment, when times are hard and mon
ey scarce, the minds of men natural
ly and properly turn to the nsid-
eration of matters affecting tbe price
of subsistence the cost of living.
Certainly , there is no food mere
healthful or more palatable than the
best varieties offish which are round
in our lakes and rivers. Yet the
supply has been growing less, year
by year, until it can no longer be re
garded as a common and cneap ar
ticle bf diet, but should be classed
with the luxuries, which'' only the
rich or those in comfortable cir
cumstances can afford. It is no lon
ger a question whether or not it is
possible to re-stock our inland wa
ters With fiSh. 'r.-. " ::'! -l
' The General Assembly, at its lost
session, authorized tbe appointment
of three Fish Commissioners, who
were to act without compensation,
but whose actual expenses while
prosecuting their investigations were
provided for by a small appropria
tion. These Commissioners were
not expected to undertake the actual
work of fish cnlture,otherwise a lar
ger appropriation would have been
made. Tbe Board are now ready to
commence re stocking our waters,
and are satisfied that an almost un
limited supply of fish can be .fur
nished, within three or four years
from the time whea work is entered
upon in earnest. - In the interest of
both comfort and economy,! recom
mend an appropriation of. at least
$5,000, for the purpose 1 ef erecting
hatching-houses on Lake Erie;, in
our reservoirs and riversjind to pay
the ! expenses of propagating the
most desirable kinds of fish, ;,.
roads have contributed very large
ly to the prosperity of the State.that
lines heretofore projected ought to
be built, and that new routes ought
to be located in order to secure the
best development of our resources
and the highest reward for our in
dustries, it is undoubtly the duty of
the General Assembly to encourage
legitimate railroad enterprises... But
several abuses have crept into tbe
management of some of these cor
porations which ought to be correc
ted. It is no uncommon thing for
the officers of railroad companies to
associate themselves together,as the
proprietors of fast freight lines,' or
in some other like capacity,wcereDy
they are enable to contract with
themselves, so as to secure unwar
ranted profits, at the'expense of tbe
stockholders they officirlly represent
and of the people who transact busi
ness with the roads. Another diffl
culty is that these fast freight lines,
not being organized under the laws
ofOhio.though doing business with
in the limits of this (state, pay no
taxes whatever. When the officers
of the rail-oad coi porations are ask
ed to list the property, they answer
that they do not own it . and have
nothing to do with it!' , One fast
f . -eight line has heretofore owned
and used four thousand cars.and all
this property escaped taxai'on
Ohio,altnough operated in this State
It is worty of consideration whether
or not this evil can be remedied by
State or National legislation. ' ''' '
tit would be well for the General
Assembly to compel Ohio corpora
tions, under heavy penalties ror re
fusing to obey the law, to Keep tneir
transfer books, orduplicatss thereof
at some office or : place within .the
limits ofthe State,, and the books
should be closed for transfersat least
ten day before the'annual meeting of
stockholders. , - . ,
In this connection it may not be.
improper to say that the subject of
clieai transportation is one . wnicn
is engrossing the attention' of the
whole country. A committee of
Congress now has the matter under
consideration, and it is hoped a just
and ' satisfactory solution of this
troublesome question will be reach
ed. If Congress should fail to af
ford relief, it may become the du
ty of the State Legislatures to -con
sider what can and what ought to
be done. ' ' -
' Under the existing laws, the labor
of convict in tbe Ohio Penitentiary
is not for the most part, employed
directly by the State, but is let out
to the highest bidders .therefor. The
contractors pay for such labor, on
an average, about ninety cents per
day per capita, and the prisoners
are clothed and fed at the expense of
the State. It necessarily happens
that manufacturers who obtain labor
at so low a rate, go into market
with great advantage over all com
petitors less fortunate in tins regard.
Tbey are enabled, it is believed at a
profit, to undersell the : market
price. The result- mast inevitably
be, that all kinds of business similar
to those carried on in the Peniten
tiary are em harassed, while the pris
on contractors make . inordinate
gains. It may be urged that hiring
this convict labor is open to corn pe
fition. Nominally, it is so; practic
ally, it remains for many years in.
the same hands, and , is not fully
paid. I am of the opinion, after
some investigation,that it would jbe
more prohtable lor tbe state to util
ize and control the labor of all pris
oners than to adhere to the contract
system. At all events, the prison
could be so conducted as to inter
fu. e less with the legitimate pursuits
or business men who pay the ordin
ary wages for work.
The State, looking to tbe inter
ests of all its citizens, could have
no inducement to sell tits mo-iuf.ic
tures below the market pi ice, for
its plain dnty is to encourage busi
ness everywhere, and to embarass it
as little as possible. " ir'"
I hope the general assembly will
investigate : this subject, 1 and do
what is deemed best for the good of
tue wbole btate.
: I renew the recommendations I
made last year with .regard - to en
larging and impro ring the colls of
the convicts in the Penitentiary.
As at present constructed, they
are not fit, to be occupied, and are
not in keeping, witk the humane
spirit of the age. Tfie cost of mak
ing the necessary changes would not
be great, as most of the work could
be done by the prisoners them
selves. -. A? decent regard, for the
health and 'reasonable comfort of
these unfortunate criminals requires
early attention and faction on the
part of the Legislature. ( 'T J q -
Another year's experience in the
matter fhearing and deciding ap
plications for pardon has confirmed
me in the opinion that the law should
be so modified as to leave less ais-
cretion with the courts in passing
sentence for criminal . offences. ; It
often happens that two prisoners
work side by side in the Peniten
tiary, both sent there for the same
crime, one for one year and the oth
er for ten. In such a case it is im
possible to convince the convict in
carcerated for the longer ' time that
be has keen fairly dealt with. And
so long as he is stung with a sense
of this injustice, he is not likely to
reform. There is nothing approach
ing uniformity ia the length of sen
tences procunccd bv different
judges for similar offences.:
I earnestly recommend that -the
criminal law be so changed as to se
cure more exact justice; so amend
ed as to leave results, affecting the
lives and liberties of men less de
pendent upon the judgement, the
temperament or the caprice of those
who administer the law. .
- It may sot be universally known
that under tbe acttof Congress, ap
proved April 23, 1808, two hundred
thousand dollars are annually ap
propriated for the purpose of arm
ing and equiping the militia of the
United states, taiaaam being amd
ed among the States and Territories
according to their representation in
Congress.' The yearly r- quota- of
Ohio under this rule, is; ?U,oO0.
But during the late war large sums
of money were charged against some
of tbe States for arms and other ord
nance stores issued to! said States
by the Wari Department..! By ref-r
erences to the report of the Adju
tant General, which will be seen
that Ohio stood charged on the 1st
of December, 1868.ith $184,773.23
in excessof her quota. The'amount
at this time appearing to be due
after.deducting the credits allowed
since Deeember 1st 1868, is about
$127,000." As the arms and other
ordnance stores now in possesison of
the Mate are inconsiderable m quan
tity, and of little value it is undoubt
edly true that we stand charged with
stores issued to troops and used dur
ing the war,audj which have been
accounted foKby the United States
Government by commanding officers
in the field. It may be that errors
occurred in keeping tbe accounts,
but certain it is that . Ohio ought
not to be charged with this "large
amount of . money. . Indeed, lien
era! A.JB.Dyer,.Chief of Ordnance
-. "Large sums of . money were
charged against so.ne of tbe States
for arms, etc., rurnisnea oy mis ae
partment during the war, and other
States, equally populous, had no
charges made against them during
the same period and it seems to me
highly proobable that errors occur-
ed in keeping the accounts with the
State, which do reat - injustice to
some of them, but whieh this Bureau
has no "authority to? correct The
nrincinal if not all. of the issues
which were made to the States dur
ing the war. were made to them'for
the maintenance ofthe Government
and the preservation of the- Union
and shoulii have been charged as
arms and other stores issued to vol
unteers. to the United States and
not to the States." - -
If the apparent indebtedness here
refered to is not cancelled, as the
Adjutant General says it will be
eleven yerus before any arms can be
received by this state, .
It would be well to autuorize
some agent or State officer to inves
tigate and secure a correction of
the mistakes heretofore made. O
if Congressional action is necessary,
as the Chief of Ordnance . seems to
think, then the General Assembly
should instruct . our Senators and
reaucst our Representatives in Con
gress , to secure, if possible, the re

Claims to tbe amount of . nearly

ave been presented to the U. S.
Government by the State of Ohio,
Ind., and III. on account of the

The House of Representative i in
Congress last winter, by a vote
of two to one, recognized the validi
ty of this claim. The Senate bare

not, by a single vote. A memorial
has recently been addressed to Con

efforts will be warmly seconded by
the Legislatures of our respective

It having been decided to cele

would seem proper that the United
States Government should purchase this

action, however, on the part of the
United States, it is for the General As
sembly of Ohio to decide what ought to
be done. The subject is respectfully
recommended tor your consideration
Two volumes ot the Geolos ical Sti
vey one of Geology and one of Paleou-
tology have been published and dis
tributed since the adjournment ef the
last General Assembly. The neld worn
of tbe survey has been completed, and
a large amount ot material nas been
collected for future volumes. It was
hoped that all the text would be ready
for the printer at the beginning of the
present year, but it nas been found im
possible, with the utmost industry, to
finish' it. Sufficient matter for two
more volumes will be prepared by the
15th of February next, wuen tne term
for which the Geological Corps was ap
pointed expires by limitation, indeed.
no appropriation has been made for ex
penses beyond the 1st of the present
montu. me plan ot tne survey con
templates two other volumes m audi
tion to those I have mentioned, one de
voted to economic geology purely, and
the other to zoology, botany, agricul
ture, etc. The work will not be com
plete without these latter volumes, the
material for which is now fully half
prepared. A general geological map of
the state should also accompany the
printed volumes. To perfect the wbole
in a creditable manner will require two
yenrs more of time at an expense of
s 10,000 a year.
I therefore recommend that an appro
priation be made for the publication ef
two volumes Immediately, and tnat the
sum of $10,000 be added, to continue the
work of tbe survey another year.
The value of this geological survey
to the people ef Ohio can hardly be
over-estimated. It has occupied but
little time, and Its cost has been much
less than that bf similar enterprises in
other States. The work, so far as pub
lished, is evervwJiere highly commen
ded; in my judgment the interests of
the people require that it should be car
ried on to completion. - It would be an
unwarranted waste of time and money
if the material now prepared should not

been done iu a satisfactory manner, and
there remains unused of the sum ap
propriated ystnii,a. this amount
could have been judiciously expended
In further improvements, but the Li
brary Commissioners did not feel at
liberty to go beyond tbe authority del
egated to them by the General Assem
bly. - The sky-light above the library
room ought to be enlarged, the walls
and ceiling should be painted, the floor
carpeted, and a little inexpensive fur
niture added; for all of which the fund
heretofore appropriated Is sufficient.
1 recommend that the .Librarian or
the Commissioners be authorized to di
rect the necessary changes and additions
to be made.
AGRICULTURAL AND MECHANICAL COLLEGE.
The . Agricultural , and Mechanical
College was opened for the ar? mission of
students on the ltn or September last.
Thirty students entered tbe institution
at that time, and classes were lormed
in almost all of the departments of in
struction. Tbe college can therefore
be said to be in guccessmi operation
The courses of study seem to have

By act of the Legislature all of the
material collected by the state Geologi
cal Survey during its live years of ser
vice becomes the property of the C'ol-
lege, to the keeping of which it is al
ready translerred. The collections are
large, and furnish a very satisfactory
representation of the mineral wealth
and fossil contents of tbe rocks of Ohio.
The value of the gift would be greatly
enchanced by some provision for its
proper display. Suitable cases for the
exhibition of so large an amount of
material would probably cost S3juo.
By tbe approbation of such a sum the
collection conld be immediately utilized
in an impressive and Instructive display
of both the economical and scientific in
terests of the geology of Ohio.
OHIO AND MIAMI UNIVERSITIES.
The Miami University has temporar
ily closed its doors for want of adequate
support, and tbe Ohio University is far
irom being in a prosperous condition.
Unless assistance is rendered by the
State to both, they will soon be obliged
to suspend altogether. I renew tbe
suggestion made in my message last
year, that one er these Institutions be
changed to normal school of the higher
grade, and tne other to a preparatory
department, auxiliary to the Agricul
tural and Aiecnamcal (Jellege. ur, it
thought best, normal schools could be
substituted for both. Unless this, or
something equivalent to this, is done,
the funds heretofore donated to these
Universities will be lost to the educa
tional interests of the State. Far the
benefit ot our common schools, we
want, most of all, normal instruction ;
and if the Ohio and Miami Universities
were devoted to this purpose, with very
little help from the State, I have no
doubt they weuld be abundantly sup
OTHER PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS.
Ohio is iustly proud of ber benevo
lent, reformatory and penal institutions.
In no part or the werld, it is believed,
are the asylnmns, reform schools and
prisons better conducted than with us.
Our unfortunate, and even our criminal
classes, are watched aver with tender
solicitude, are surrounded with health
ful influences, and are furnished with
the necessaries, comforts and some of
the luxuries of life; they are well fed
and clothed and sheltered: they are
provided with mental and moral culture,
tneir lives are rendered as contented
and happy as their situation and condi
tion will permit. Moreover, it Is grati
fying to kuow that the yearly cost par
capita for maintaining tbe inmates of
these public institutions is from forty to
one hundred and fifty dollars less than
in the corresponding, establishments of
other btates east and west or us, rank

many important suggestions. You are

tor and one of the wisest statesman
whose lives grace the history of the na
tion. Xo man has held a larger place
in the hearts and minds or the people.
nor has any one contributed more to the
welfare ot -the State ot Ohio than be
did. His public utterances will inspire
the eloquence or other men long years
after all who knew him and heard him
shall have passed away. The study of
his life and its grand success will cheer
to redoubled effort the toiling sons of
genius and poverty generations hence.
It is one of the sweet privileges of

dead. It is especially becoming that
the state which T homas corwin served
so long and so well should testify its
appreciation ef his public career by
erecting an appropriate monument to

There are several other matters
which I had expected to call the atten

involve the expenditure or considerable
sums of money, aud I do not feel at lib

phia rejoices that the Lord has call
ed another of her daughters to the
work or missions. More than two
years ago Miss Harriet N. Philips
obeyed the Master's call, and went
out to labor , among the Chippewa
Indians at Udanah, Wisconsin, and
during last year Miss M. Louisa
Tarbell joined her in the work, and
their labors have been signally bless
ed. And now a third lady, Mrs.
H. Miller, a child ot the church and
Sabbath school, has come forward.
and said, ''Here am I; send me.
Our Board of Foreign Missions com
missioned her, and she sailed on
October 25th for Mynpoorie, India.
Un sabbath evening, October lUtli
a large congregation assembled
the church to bid her Godspeed
the glorious work upon which she
has entered, short and suitable ad
dresses were made by the Rev. S. L.
Conde, of Troy, Pa.; the Rev. A.

China; the Kcv. K. H. Allen, D. I.
and the Rev. Dr. Stryker, of Rome,
New York. The pastor, Rev. D. A.
Cunningham, D. D., in a few kind
and cheering words assured Mrs.
Miller or the love and sympathy of
the congregation from the oldest to
the youngest, and gave her for a mot
to text the second verse - of the
twelfth chapter of Isaiah, "Behold,
God is my salvation; I will trust.
and not be afraid, Jor the Lord Je
hovah is my strength and my song
he also is become my salvation.' He
then led. the congregation in prayer

servants, 'Lo,I am with you always.

A CAR LOAD OF SILK WORMS EGGS.
Oae of the most valuable consign
ments that ever passed "across tbe
continent arrived in Chicago yes
terday afternoon. ' One freight car
contained goods whose value ex
ceeded fi'.uuu.uou. The enormous
cost would be in itself a circumstance
worthy of note, but the peculiar
character or the goods gives to the
affair additional interest. The con
3ignment was a car load of silk
worms' eggs, en route for France.
Tbey were purchased in Yokahoma
by the p retich Government, and ar
rived in San Francisco December IS.
Only three days were lost in trans
ferring them to the freight car, and
December 18 the precious packages
commenced their trans continent
In this country very Tew are Tamil-

England, where the climate is less

the canary. Boys and girls all boast
box or thriving silk worms, and
take as much pride in winding off
the golden thread from the cocoon
as the youth of this country in the
possession or marbles and sucn toys.
The silk-worm's egg is about one-
quarter the size of a pin's head, and

certainly not indicative of the value

The annual political agitation in
England will begin on the 5th of
Febauary whenParlirment begins 'its
session. The present Parliament was
elected in 1868 under the leadership
of Mr, Disraeli who soon became

his successor and has managed to
hold on to his office ever since
though his hold "has .been very
weak since the defeat of bis ministry
on tbe University bill last year.
But Mr. ' Gladstone promises

yet owing to the dissension among
his opponents, and it is not unlikely
that the general elections to be held
in May and June may strengthen
his position in spite of the partial
failure of and general dissatisfaction
with his policy. The chief ques
