Extracts from Governor
Anderson's Message.
Gentlemen f the Senate and House
of lirjH'egentatiin:
The Constitution of tho State of Ohio
imposes upon the (iovernor the duty of
"connnnnicatinjr at every session, hy ines
sae, to the r.cneral Assembly, tho condi
tion of the (State, and to reeommed such
measures as he shall deem expedient."
The sad eaIam!U' which deprived our
State of the great "aliiities, ami the indus
trious and, energetic services of the late
Governor, and devolved the duties of this
ollico upon me. anion'' other conequent
deprivations and injuries to tin public In
terests. niut. In this Instance nlso. develop
and exemplify the extent of that great
public loss. At my bet I could but Horlj
supjdy the want of his pow er and activities.
While In the circumstances amid which I
have entered U'xm these grave rcsxnsl
bllitles, no one could weli bo expected to
completely iM'i lonn this task. An exercise
of these functions so limited In its time, a
iiUiyiwity wWi Ue liljordiiintcotlie' tint
their proceedings so partial and Incomplete,
could scarcely attain, iu the aptest mind, to
that maturity of observation and experience
which is ipiite essential to useful results iu
either branch of this constitutional injunc
tion. As the case stands, however, I now
address myself to It's performance.
The tliiancial condition of the State seems
as satisfactory as could be wished at any
rate expected, under that enormous and
necessary burden of taxation which the
recent warof treason, with its incidents, has
Imposed upou our people.
Comparing the satements of the Auditor
of Statu for the last and the current years,

It thus appears that with anin

Why this result has occurred will

"Wo thus find a like result of in
creased expenditures and a dimin
ished balanco in this branch also of
the State' finances. Like expla
nations will be duly attempted.
Following up this comparison of
these two years, we lind :
An excess of tax collections In st',5 over
18(14 of(i7 188 07. against a like excess of
1861 over 1803 of tflii.uai 3i. An excess of

over 18C4 of Sin (hi!) i), ngaint a total in

of 1 (103 07!) (it), against a like excess of 1801

"With sucli an increase of our
revenues, and with such a diminu
tion of our military expenditures, it
becomes an indespensable dutyibr
the General Assembly to demand,
and for the Executive to give, an
explanation of this extraordinary,
perhaps unexpected, comparative
deficit in these annual balances.
To this end, it is the better course
to fix, as well as we can, by a par
tial analysis of the leading items in
tho various accounts, the instances
of these increases of expenditures.
After settling these facts of actual
results, we should, as far as practi
cable and profitable, investigate
their explanatory reasons or excu
ses. Accordingly, we find excess of
expenditure in the General Kev
enue Account for 1S05 over those
of 18G4, in tho following items and
sums, viz :
Direct taxes paid to United States Gov
ernment in 1803, $7(30 8!K3 04. Benevolent

were 11 195 36, showing an exces of I 780 83.
It has been seen, by the first
General statement at nnw 4 tlmf
the receipts and disbursements of
1805, are alike greatly in excess
over those of 18G4. This result is
to bo partly accounted lor,
1st. By the fact, that though the
rates of levy were the same, the
valuations of taxes were much
larger in 1SG5 than tho.se of 1 804.
2d. The appropriations of 1S05
were much higher than in 1SG4.
This must be a satisfactory reason
to the General Assembly.
3d. The Soldiers' Claim Fund

Treasury in 1865. and did not in

is replete with many interesting

the new system for instruction and
