GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE.

Gentlemen of the Senate and of the

House of Representatives : An eventful year in the history of nations has just drawn to its close. It has summoned you as it past to the discharge, once more, of your annual constitutional duties and obligations, under auspices inspiring every true American heart with renewed patriotism, and profound adoration and gratitude to Almighty God, our National Deliverer, and Beneficent Benefactor. Amidst the fearful and sublime uprisings of the people of Europe, and the consequent downfall of dynasties, thrones and dominions, the Model Republic, so long and so much scoffed at by the advocates of monarchy, stands serene and unshaken. Peace smiles again, on all her extended borders, and law, abrindance, freedom and contentment reign within. Questions of foreign and domestic policy, of constitutional power and obligation, of peace and war, of freedom and slavery, may, at times, awaken, as they should, the dormant energies of her people, and the renovating powers of her constitution. A great party and its measures, may encounter the silent but potent condemnation of the ballot box. The president of to-day, wielding, in wantonness, the power of twenty millions of people, may be weighed to-morrow in the balance and found wanting. Yet who does not perceive that the great American Republic, purified and strengthened by these awakenings, remains fast anchored in the virtue, intelligence, habits, affections, and deliberately formed judgment of her people of all parties ?

The Reports of the several Departments of the State Government, will be laid before you without delay; and I shall therefore content myself with the following synopsis of the Receipts and Disbursements of the fiscal year, ending on the 15th day of November, 1848:
