The defalcation of Mr. Frederick W. Porter, of
Philadelphia, who has for thirty jma held the re

American Sunday School Union, ia announced.
The following card hag been issued by tt.is inatitu

purposes, without the knowledpe or authority of

of t8S,883 09. These notes and cceptauce8 were
BigDed i y Mr. Porter, but not ei t red upon any of
the bocks of the society, and were so arranged,
that, until within a few days, no tuepition of their
existence occurred to any person connected with
the institution. We are happy to say that no part
. of the funds appear to have been attracted, nor
have any partot the contributions to its benevi lent
ohjecta beeu lost or misapplied. All the obliga
tions of the society, which have been legitimately
incurred, have been, and will be, promptly met
The business will not be s rioui-ly interrupted,
though in these painful circumrttnces we eholl need
and we doubt not shall have, the warm sympathy
and liberal aid of our niim'rou friends.

1 lie (Governor's IHeisage.
The pressure upon our columns prevented
us from laying before the readers of the
Patriot yesterday the message of Gov.
Johnsox, communicated to the Legislature
Tuesday. We make a brief synopsis of it
this morning expecting to publish it at
length in the form of a supplement.
In the commencement the Governor calls
the attention of the Legislature to the ac
tual indebtedness of the sate, which is
stated to be $4,190,850 66, on account of
Internal Improvement Bond?, Union Bank
Bonds, Bank of Tennessee, State Capitol
Bonds, and the purchase of the Hermitage.
The stocks owned by the State in Banks,
Internal Improvement Companies, &c, a
mount to $3,292,116 66. These stocks
when reduced to their market or estimated
value will amount to $2,444,827. This
would leave the actual liabilities of the
State $1,041,019 66 in excess of its cash
assets. In this connection the Governor
It is the opinion of some correct thinking and
ju'licious persons, rs well as my own, that it would
be sound policy and economy to dispose of all the
stock owned by the St te, iu Banks and Internal
Improvement Companies, or otherwise, as soon as
it caD b done on advantageous termp, and toapply
the proceeds of the sil; f f the same to the reduc
tion of the actual indebtedness of the Sute, aud
for the State as soon os practicable to become en
tirely disconnected with all corporations whatever,
either as partner or jfockboMer. The six per cent,
which would be eavFd unon the Bouds, will amount
to more thi.n all the dividends which will be paid
upon the stock so lonz as it is owned by the State.
The f -llowing tabular statement will show the
amount of 6tocks owned by the State, in Banks,
Internal Improvement Con pinie3, etc., it original
coet and its estimated value at the present time.

Relative to the value of the bonds in

State it is said
The Bonds of the StUe which have been already
issued to the various Internal Improvement Com
panies have been and are now selling! in the money
markets at ruinous rates ol discount; in tact, at a
lower rate of discount than the Bonds of some of
our sister States, whosn resources and financial abi
lity are not superior, if equal, to those of lennes
see, to meet their public engagements. Tennessee
Bonds are issued and thrown luto market without
any definite ii formation as to what amount of Bouds
can be, or will I)-', issued under existing laws, or as to
whether future Legislatures will extend the amount
to be isued. The want of this information on the
part of those who are willing to invest their capital
in State securities as to the amount of Bondj that
can and will be thrown into market, deters and pre
vents many who otherwise would mxke investments
in Tennessee Bouds. It ia believed that if the L"g
idlature will fix upon some dtiuite and knon n lim
it to which the btate credit is to be extended, and
especially sj if that li.) it is clearly within the finan
cial ability ol the Stat, it will have an immediate
iuflueiicj upon the price and sale of the Bonds
now in market, and tho-e that are to be thrown
upon it hereafter for sale; which will greatly relieve
those Internal Improvement Companies which now
have th- ir Bonds hypothecated, aud which are en
titled to the issuance of Bonds hereafter. I woul J
there-lore recommeuJ ttut the boumlarv ol our
prospective put.lic debt b well defined, aDd that it
be re duced to trie lowest hunt consistent with the
intense ami cteditof t'ie State. The credit of the
Stite can be su-t, lined by the aid of a little timely
and judicious legislation in the manner already in
dicated. It would also add to the confidence aud
credit ol the ilute, it the constitution was so
amended 8 to inhibit any future Lej.i-1 iture from
the creation of any public deht beyond a limited
amount, without first submitting the proposition to
the people for their approval or r j'-ction, unl a-- in
some great emergency, sui h us insurrection, rebel
ion, or invasion. A propositiou of this character
at the present time to amend the Constitution ol
tue Slate, would bean earnest indication to capital
ista that the public mind was healthy and sjuud in
regard to State indebtedness ; and its ultimate adop
tion would secure the people in the future ajtaiust
improvident, log-rolling leicLttion, and the creation
of heavy and excessive State indebtuess, without al
least first obtaining the people's consent.
The total value ol Uxable property, according to
the best datt that can now be o'-t uoed, will ap
proximate three hundred million dollars.

Attention is again called to the subject
of uniformity of weights and measures

Reference is made to the operations of

stitute. It is stated that trie Ilermitage has been
purchased, in compliance with the act of
the last session, and tendered to the Gen
eral Government; and iu case the tender
is not accepted, the Governor recommends
that the preperty be retained as a residence
for the future Governors of the State.
In reference to the State Capitol, the
message says it has already cost $1,204,-
012 12, and is yet unfinished. The hope is
expressed that the Legislature will adopt
some means by which its completion will be
brought about at an early day. It is
I would suggest the propriety of adding to the

to th e perple of the Mate for tht manner in which
they discharge their duty; and, furthermore, their

now being performed, and also for consultation in
reference to the best, mode of having it done and

This may be an easy mode of disposing of a dif

those who feel a proper interest in the election of
so important an officer as United States Senator.
We regret to know that several of our contempo
raries have endeavored to evade the just responsi
bility of their pocition, by adopting the suggestion
of the McMinnville New Era, viz: to refer the sub

among this number we are sorry to find our coteui

Thi- neutral ground may be very proper for the

it is to reflect the s--ntiinent of the party as collect

Ukmarkadle Marriages. Of the mary China-
meu in Nt-w York not a Itw keep 9-2ar stands upon
the side walks. Their neihboia iu trade are the
MileMan arp!ewomrj. Twenty ei-;ht ol these ap
plewomeii hive gone the w.iy of ni iti iniony w'ith
their K n'iaiit-eyed, olive-jkiuiH-d conti-mi orati s,
and tlie most of them ar- now happy mothers 111
ransenueriw. The nhvsiolojista aver that the hu
man tieiiii- is improved a1 is the domestic branch ot
the quadrupedal animals, by "crossing." If thia
be tiue and we fuspect that it ia the natives of
this country oul'Ih to be remarkable tor pbyMCi
strength aud beauty; lor surely there was never
such a mixture of races in any part ot tne worm.
Ripr si'titatives of all nations hav-- located and
matried here. We know of two Bedouin Arab-,
part of an exhibiting troupe that came to this coun
try several years ago, who married wives and are
rearing offspring in one of the Hudson rivir coun
tii s. Sum has its representatives here in the fa
mous twins, and in one of the tip town streets, a
weatliy native of Morocco domicilites with a West
chester county spouse. The mixture of Dutch,
Italian, French, Spanish, English, Iris'.i, D.nih,
Swedish, &c , is perfectly bewildering; but lhe
amalgam. tion of the Irish'and the Chinese is mor
than bewildering it begets a chaos of ideas from
which no ray of intelligibility can be safely elimina
ted. Imagine a scion of thia stuck chatting gaily
about" Josh" in oce moment, and speaking ot hid
father Ping Sing Chi, and in the next, whirling a
shillelah at a priiu'uy election, and swearins that
he go -s in, tooth and nail, or rather bo !y and
breeches, for t;e nottiinntioti of his nioiher'a broth
er, Patrick O'Dowd. Oh, what a country id this!

I notice in 6ome cases handkt rchief habit in the
pulpit., which has led us to inquire if ihb use of that
very u.-cessary article i a part of theological train
ing. I notice soma ministers take it out of their
pockets, as they do their sermon, and lay it on the
pulpit. Some spread it out U'nlliwiB through
the middle of the Bible; some roll It up, and tuck
it undir lite Bible; 80iiit- shake it evry few mo
ments over their heads; some tl-.tich it in. their
hand, as if they were yoing to throw it at the audi
ence; ana some Keep ciowuins 11 jinn intir pueaem
and pulling it out again, with a nervous movement,
as if thev did not know what other use to make ol
their hau Is. I went once to hear a popular yount;
preachei, and as much as half his sermon wa made
up of pocket handkerchief ; and trie most ol the
other half was gold witch and scraps of poetry.
