I a obedience to law I have appeared before you to pledge mv fidelitv to the Constitution. Its obligations and tbe responsibilities it imposes are, I hope, fully realized.

STATE FIXAXCES TAX ATI OX. Having beea close! v connected with tbe finances of the Sute since I SC6, j I speak kaowtngiy when I say the revenues have beea faithfully collect ed, extravagant appro priai ions have beea avoided, taxation tuts beea equal ized by the repeal of the most burd ensome taxes ; aad by strict economy aad good management the public debt has beea largely reduced. Tbe policy of paying off the entire indebt edness of the btate is, I believe, fully indorsed by the taxpayers, and it shall be my aim to adhere to that pot icy. Tbe public debt, however, de creasing while the revenues are in creasing, H occurs to me that wfurth er redaction of the latter should be made daring the current session. The increase ia the value of oor real estate aad the product of oar manufacture-, the steady develope mentof our taoorcea, and theeipaa. skin of our railway system is rapidly enriching oor people. If we ueas are the aggregate of oor wealth and, ESTABLI8HE D , 1 8 3 WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 29. 1873. 1 its growth, npoa tbe bais of oar late jeenmos, we eaa readily &nderttand i how a lighter tax imposed upon the present taxed propertr wilt meet alllaa opportCBhTtodifulaTthCTXdartai w uvvvcvratMK' a-.- , a'awaan.

THE OKPHAX8 OF SOLDIESS. In this eonnectioa, let me say a word ia regard to a subject that has oftea engaged mv thoughts, and to CO a a ' wnicn ,nTO" u -uenuon oi our ment of the orphan schools that are now the pride of our state. Bat in res cuing these children from destruction and providing for their education until they have attained the age of sixteen years, have we filled the measure cf our dutv to tbem : rowu out into tbe world to do battle . . . . i itu ic a trial at aa age peeuliarlv dangerous to Jooin. aoes D01 common numanny require that lie Mate sfcould man tain its guardianship to these children until their habits are somewhat set tled, aad tbey have acquired the means to earn their own livelihood? Tbe establishment of industrial schools, wherein useful trades may be taught, seems to promise the easiest and best solution of this problem. THE STATE XILITIA. It is highly important that ia times of insurrection and riot there should be at command a good and sufficient force of militia to assist the civil powers to protect property aad main Lain its authority. To create such a force it seems absolutely necessary that the State must extend its aid in a more substantial way to those who enlist in her service. Tbe fines for the Boa-performance of militia duty are obnoxious to many of or best citizens, and vield at best but a slen der revenue, and that, too, oa a wrong basis, for property aad not tbe indi- vidua! should be taxed. The militarv .fconl be well distributed throuirb- out the State, and the number of; icompaaies limited, and withia the j i limit to make tbeut efficient evervl company accepted,whea found to be up pV,jH r standard of numbers, Ljn - j, 40j discipline, should receive j from the pbbc treasurv least $-00 per annum. LirX AND FIRE ISSCBASCX. The fire tad life insurance com-f panies are trying to secure uniform j weahh will be tbe constant endeavor legislation ia all the States, and thej0f Tour Executive; an 1 to strengthen States having a large home interest ia j hi arm and enlarge his aaderstaad iasuranc have been the fimto adoptj q? be asks the support aad counsel ttiat nrlnMnf Ta im Kca and taxes upon insurance companies incorporated in other States aad doing business ia this, reacts upon the borne companies by reason cf tbe reciprocal laws of those States. If it is deemed desirable to protect and foster the borne iasuraace interest, already too long neglected, let uniform laws be eaated. To me it seems this interest is of sufficient importance to w arrant tbe temporary loss of a por tion of tbe revenue now received from j the foreign companies. The revenue from our own companies will increase by reason of their enlarged bssiaess, aad we iH thus be compensated for ! each loss. THE CIVTEXXIAL A XXI VERS ART. The necessity for immediate action on the part of our people to iaaore the success of the Centennial Exhibi tion must be realized by every think in; znan.

SPECIAL LEGISLATION EVIL. There is one foremost aad growing evil, however, to which by my oath j as your Executive, and my sense of i duty as a citizen, I am constrained to ! ak your special attention. I refer to j Oa Christmas eve, ia tbe sober special legislation, or the abuse of j Quaker tabernacle oa Scbermerhora legislative power to further particular street, ia Brooklya, there occurred a local and private ends to the exdu-jvery a&ique ceremony of tbe un sion of public business.
