Mr G B Manser the secretary of the Governor read tho following inessago from his excellency Governor Jcnnison : Gentlemen of the Senate, and of tho Mouse ol Representatives. In a community possessing and exercis ing the powers of self government, when all power and authority annually emanate Irom the people and uy the established usages of the country as often return to the fountain Irom I hoy came, it is of the first importance that tho fountain should be kept purr. Tho safety and permanency of our freo institutions depend solely on tho public virtue, and general itclligence ol the peo ple. Hence llio necessity of that general guaruiansuip wuicii uie laws assume over the one: and the indispensable duty of the government to secure and effectually pro. vide for the other. Genius is a-i uftcn found under the hum blest roofas in the dwellings of the allluent. It is public properly, and provision should be medcto educate, at the public expense, every child in tin State whose parents are unable to do it. I would earnestly recommend lo the con sideration of the Legislature an exuuiina. tion of tho acis relating to the support of common scnoois. u is learcd they arc radically defective, inasmuch as they do not sufficiently provide for the employ ment of teachers, in the education of our children, of suitable attainments mid qual ifications. The public money arising from rents, income of loans and the three cent school tax, are now divided in each town accord- ing to the number of children between tho ngesol'fouraud eighteen. I have no doubt that the great interests of education, would be better promoted, bv dividing mm third, or some certain bhare,"fi;:ed by"law, of the public munoy accruing in each luwu, equally among the several districts in the same, and the residue in proportion to the number of Scholars in each district as now provided by law. Such a provision wuuiu serve 10 equalize llio benefits result ing from the public aid afforded to common Schools; enabling the biiiuller districts to procure the services of belter qualhfied teachers mid to continue their schools for a longer period, nnd lessening tlm tendency to extravagance and waste, which it is fear cu way l-aisv m some ol our larger dis tricts. " In connection with this subject permit me to suggest that, although our schools are m many places able to avail themselves of competent teachers from our collccs and academics, aill it is believed thai in the State thero is a want of well qualified teachers, and it is worthy of inquiry whether it would not comport with, and be tho legit mate duty or tho legislature to providu for and patronize some suitable institutions fur tho education of teachers. Public opinion seems to call for sume measure of this kind. An opportunity is now offoidcd through tho means of the surplus revnue, soon to bo p'ocod at tho disposition of our Slate, of making, proba bly, an cfieclual and permanent provision for llie support of our primary schools and fur tlio encouragement of oilier institutions of learning, and also to enahlo tho towns lo diminish, what is by some considered the normous burthen of tho three cent school tax. A revision of the entire code of our mil litia laws is most earnestly called for; repeated additions and alterations have so far obscured their meaning and diminished their effect, that they arc known, in some instances to have entirely failed of accom plishing the objects for which they wore enacted. They are expensive and unequal in their operation, anil perfectly inefficient so far as subordination and discipline are concerned. A well disciplined niillitia has ever been considered tho surest safeguard in a free government, and will desorvo all tho commendation which has been bestow ed upon it; It is carncslly hoped that tho Legislature will bo disposed to give to tho subject that consideration which its itnpor lance demands. In progress of the session vour attention may be called to tho considention of the laws relating to imprisonment for debt. Within a few years they havo been shorn of much of their severity. Should tho Legislature, however, deem it expedient lo abolish or chango our pres ent system, rigorous measures ought to be adopted for the prevention of fraud, and while the rights of tho really poor debtor are provided for by tho humane policy of our laws, tho rights of the honest, and, in many instances, poor, creditor should hose cured by the terrors of criminal punishment. The pursuits of our people arc, at pres ent, esentially agricultural, and being such we must, in some measure, remain depen dent for many of tho necessaries and luxu ries of life, as well as for a market for the surplus products of our soil. But, from tho cnlcrprizing spirit manifested by many of our citizens, for a few years past, it is very apparent that we arc destined at no distant period, to hecomo also a manufacturing people. Tho facilities afforded for propel ling machinery in tho immense water power every where abounding throughout our territory, the inexhaustible mineral wealth of our mountains, together with our cheapness of living, will, unnless discour aged by a narrow and illiberal course of legislation, present such inducements to our citizens and to foreign capitalists as to lead them to increase their investments in manufacturing establishments, and thereby secure to the cultivator of the soil, a more certain and uniform reward for his industry. Although adequate protection for our man ufacturing interests cannot be afforded by any legislaiivo action ol ours, slill wo may, and perhaps ought, on all suitable occasions, to express our convictions, thai the general government will lend its aid. In connection with the interests of agri culture and manufactures, perhaps I may be permitted the inquiry whclhcr public opinion docs not point too plainly to be misunderstood, to tho necessity of com mencing, at some period, improvements in our facilities of communication, worlhy'the ouu'j unu uie ago in winch we live. Satisfied, as I am, that it is only a quos lion oflime when tho Slate shall stcn fur ward and do something to encourage this great work, I submit to the wisdom of the Legislature whether the time has not al ready arrived, beyond which it would bo a dereliction of duty, and disregard to the prosperity and best interests of the people of our State to poslpono tho incipient measures ol some system ot intGrnal nn provcmcnl ; whether llie L.-gislalurc will not cause surveys to bo made at the pub. lie expense of some oflhe leadiiis routes with particular and accurate estimates of the expense, and tho probable amount of business which might be done npon them. I am not so visionary as to suppose that with the present resources of our Govern ment this Slate will undertake, like some of our sister biatcs, any gigantic system of internal improvementBut, after a thor ough examination of llio several projects, with careful estimates of their expense and probable income, is it unreasonable to be lieve that some of those routes may not he fouud feasible, and nfl'ord reasonable pros pects of profit, and that the energies of our own citizens may not thus be aroused lo aitcmpi and accomplish some one of them? To one who has attentively surveyed the march of improvement in our sister' Slates, who has seen their canals and rail roads formed as by magic, while no attempt has ucen mauc to improve the facilities ol com munication in our own State, the cause of the daily drain of wealth, and, of what is ol incalculably greater imporlanco to any community, the unprecedented emigration of our best nnd most industrous citizens, is not problematical. By the provision of tho act of Congress of the last session, entitled "an act to reg ulate the dcposiles oflhe public money," it will become the duty of the Lecislnlurc to provide by law somo means lo enable the 1 rcasurcr to receive, on deposito, the amount which, by terms oflhe act, will be duo this State. Il is the money of the people and it is hardly to bo supposed, when once distributed lo tho several states, that the exigencies of llie General Govcrnmct will soon, if over, demand its repayment. The provisions of this net are deemrd wise and salutary. The unexpected and rapid accumulation of monev in tho national Treasury, tho evil of niacin!? at Ihcdisnosal of government too much of the wealth of the naiion combine tu render such distribu tion necessary. i would not be understood, as beinu desi rous or willinr tu place the nrincirml of this fund, beyond the control of any future Leg. islature. Tho principal so long as il re mains at the disposal of this State should be kept an inviolable fund. Tho income only, which, to all intents is the properly of iho people, should bo annually applied for the support of our common schools, for in that application, and that only, can llie ucuenciai cnects, resulting from the ilistri bution, be so fully and equally realized by tho entire people oflhe State. i am not disposed to remark upon the various projects which will probably be presented fervour conshlnrniinn. hut would simply suggest a plan which I consider lia bio lo llio least objection. Tho several towns in tho State might be made tho depositories of such share of the whole amount rceoived, as by their popula tion they would be entitled: and bo made accountable lo tho Slate, in iho same man ner that( the Slate is to the genoral govern ment. The Selectmen of the several towns, aboardolrcady by Iho laws entrusted with Iho prudential affair of iho saino, might nuiiBgo such share as the towns should re ceive, and cause tho income to bo divided among the several school districts, in such manner as might bo provided by law. It is believed that the fund might bo managed, tho income applied, and the advantages more impartially'distributcd in this manner than in any other. During tho recess of tho Legislature, communications have been made lo mo by the Executives of the Stales of Pennsylva nia, N.Carolina, Alabama, Kentucky, Ohio, Mississippi, Virginia, Maine, Connecticut South Carolina and N. York, enclosing resolutions oftho legislatures of those states upon various subjects, and containing re quests that they be communicated to the Legislature of this State, which will be laid before you at an early day. The vacancy occasioned by the deolh of Hon. Timothy Merrill, late Secretary of Slate, was supplied by the appointment of Farrnnd F. Morrill, who had held the office of deputy secretary under the laic incum bent. Tho recent adoption oftho amendments to the Constitution will necessarily call your attention to an alteration in the scv. oral acts relating to the passing of laws, to meet the present organization oflhe Lcgis lat urc. 1 have, as I deemed it my duly, thus frankly submitted to you my views upon tho several subjects alludjd to in this communication, relying upon your wisdom and general knowlodge oftho wants of our country, for such legislative action, as will advance tho virtue and happiness of our citizens, and secure in their purity, our free institutions. I should do injustice, to my own feelings, should I omit, on this occasion, to express my grateful and respectful sense oflhe confidence reposed in nic by an clcc. tion, by a majority of my fellow citizens, lo tho rcsposible office of Chief Magistrate of tho State. Aware that tho servants of tho neonlc should bo judged not by their professions of zeai mr inepuunc good, but by the manner in which they shall discharge the trusts re posed in them: I will barely remark that in the performance of my official dulius I shall rely mi tho cordial co-operation of the sev eral branches of our government, and the generous and liberal support of nn intelli gent people. SILAS II. JENISON. I'.xecutive Department, Monlpeller Oct. 14, 1C3G. FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 21' PEOPLE'S TICKET. FOR PRESIPKNT WM. Iff. IIARRISOIV. FOR VICE PRESIDENT FRANCIS GRANGE It. FOR ELECTORS. JABEZ PROCTOR, SAMUEL SWIFT. DAVID CRAWFORD, At large, Dist. No. I 2, HI Mil I HOWE, 3, TITUS HUTCHINSON, 4, WM. A- GRISWOLD, 5, EDWARD LAMB. DURLINGTON AND ITS VICINITY. The extensive improvements now making nt llio Lower Rills on Onion Uivcr, in the neishborliouj of this vill.igp, eccin destined lo confer upon us nil llie artv.inlnges, with tut few of the evils ofn man ufacturing town. Though near enough lo derive whatever benefit may icsuli from die gromli of ilia place, llio creation of n homo inaikcl, nnd llie general impulse which the employment of numerous labourers and llio investment of large capital al ilic Fulls musl gite to biiiines of every description, at llie natural outlet nnd port of entry oftho whole valley of Onion River, we are yet sufficiently re mote lo te out of llio immediate splieio of most of lliu inconveniences, lo which nil mere manufactur ing villages nrc inoie or less exposed. Vc hue therefore abundant icason lo congratu late ourselves, llint llie extraordinary ami long neglected ndvantngea of llie walcr iower nt the Fulls have teen at length nppiecialed ty persons possessing enough of both capital nnd enterprise lo turn these advantages to llie best account. The fall at both dams is ntout SI feet, and llie walcr power is compute! lo be sufficient lo diive one hundred thousand cotton spindles, or twenty five factories of llie largest class. Great as this power is, wc have good le.ison lo telicvo that il will be very soon appropriated, as llie owners of both sides of the river nrc making every exertion to procccJ as rapiclli as possible, in the erection of a variety of manufacturing establishments. Upon the Diirliiigton side, in addition lo llie saw mill , flouring mill and paper mill, nn oil mill and saitinet factory were put in operation last season, ami the present jear thero litis men crecieJ an extensive building filled with n series of the most ingenious machinery for the manufacture of ships blocks, ilcnj-evra, &c. besides newly invciileil machines for sawing nut nnd finishing tarrel slaves. The tlock factory is llie only establishment of llie kind in llio United Slates, or indeed in llio world, (the block machinery of Brunei being entirely diflTeient from llio American, and in llie opinion ol competent judges greatly inferior lo il bolh in simplicity and elticiency.) I lie midlines arc chiefly conn ivances of Blanchard, llie celebrated Inventor of llie gun stock lathe, and llio company nl llie Fulls urc llio sole pionnetors of nil the patents. Wo lea in that llie owners oflhe lands upon this side of llie river intend lo erect two large col Ion or woollen factories in the course of llio next season. The proprietors of llie Colchester side commen ced lastjear ty llie expenditure of a large Bum in building a dam nnd canal, nnd excavating nnd gra ding their grounds. Tho present reason ihcy have continued these operation, hate piepaicd various tiles for factories, have built and put in operation saw mill capable of culling 1,500,000 feet of hoards per annum, with a planing machine and lathes, and nre now building a troadcloili factory ISO feet in length, and a plaster mill and machine hop. They mo also making arrangements to cs- tatlith a cotion warp, nnd saitinet factory, and nn iron foundry. It is not easy lo imagine a site belter calculated fur Iho purposes which the proprietors of this walcr power hive in view, than Iho place in ques tion. To say nothing of llie accessibility and easv application of the power, and the alsoluto eccuriiv oftho tuildings ngninit freshen, there nre oilier advantage of no small moment in the nbundance and excellcnco cf 1 lie building materials, such us lime, clay, quarry stone, nnd even hvdrnulic lime, all of which arc found upon the premises, and of the test possible quality. The discovery of hydrau lic lime was riade in blasting rocks lo obtain stone fur the wall of the troadcloili mill, nnd tho founda tion oflhe mill is chiefly of this material. As far ns wc know, this rare nnd most valuable stone line not before teen found in this stale, nnd the discov ery is likely lo prove of great importance. The effect of these improvements upon the pros perity of llio place has already teen most manifest in the increased activity, enterprise, and above all, confidence of llie business community, and in the rise of real estate, though this ha by no means so far recovered from its long depression, ns to pre elude opportunity of advantageous speculation, at least ns promising ns some of the much puffed non enlhiesof llie west. the distance from llie balls to the Lake is something less than two miles, though by (he course of the river it is more ihan thrico ns far. It is supposed that (he navigation of the river can te su improved ns lo admit of the convenient approach of canal boats lo the very foot of the fills, nt no extravagant expense, nnd this enterprise will doubt less engage the early attention of those inoie nr licularly interested. Wc wish however ul this time to call the attention of our readers lo another more feasible and in many respects more important impiovemcnl. We nllude to tho project of nvoid- ing the formidable barrier telwecn the Uivcr and tho Ray, so notorious as tho " Falls Hill." We have lately examined the route of a i ejected road leading from I'earl street to the trow of llie Inter val hill, thence across the offset below the Catholic church, and thence in nearly n right line lo llie Falls. We found lo oursurprise that ihoiouteis a perfectly practicable one, presenting very few otstucles, ond those easily surmounted, and we can confidently assure our readers thai a road may te made by the route in question, at a very moderate expense, little, if at all, exceeding the piesenl road in distance, and so nearly level that a horse may irot llie whole way, vvilh'iul inconvenience. More Ihan two thirds oflhe distance is a dead level, and over a soil, which, though soft enough lo to easily wrought, is jet sufficiently firm lo afford good road bed, and the remainder, though broken, pre-euls no greater difficulties ihan have been over come in almost every mile of many of the best roads in other sections of the state. The importance of this improvement to llie town of Burlington, to the rising village ul tho Fall, uiui io uie wnoie eastern district ulncti cenlers heie, is most manifest, and we aie fully persuaded lliat llie saving oflhe lime of man, nnd the labor of teast, in any one venr would inoie than lepny llie whole-cost of the road. Wc undcrblan I that llie selectmen will sjon te called on lo examine the projected route, and that such oilier measures will te taken ns are necessary lo llie speedy attainment of this desirable object. It will ho observed that the relative strength of parties in tho Legislature is very near as wo estimated it. Tho Van ilesarojnst a comfortable minority, say half a dozen more of ihetn than last year but not in the least troublesome. The House and Senate in joint commit tee, elected C. L. K.napp, Editor of the State Journal, Secretary if State, on Friday on tho second ballot. E. D. Barber was the opposing (V.Burcn) candidate -second ballot, Knapp 129,, Barber 97. The Judges of iho Supremo Court were reelected on Saturday without opposition. F. F. Merrill, son of the late Timothy Merrill was elected Engrossing Clerl: ballots 132 for M.- D. P. Thompson CO scattering 10. Norman William?, Secretary of the Senate, William Westu.n Assistant Sec retary. A. L, Mine n Clerk of tho House, John L. Buck Assistant Clerk. Gov. Jcnison's vote is only about 1300 less this year than what it was last, when, it will bo recollected, ho was supported by thu Middlehury Free Press, Franklin Jour nal, North Star, Palmer, Eaton, Barber, Smith, &c. &c. And this wo take to bo about a fair estimate of the immense intln- enco of lhat immaculate clan and their thrcc.fourths of the antimasnnic papers. lt appchrs Mr. Allen's majority is about eleven hundred. So Mr. Stone will havo to lorrgo the "amusement" it would afford him to have humbugged a majority oftho people into voling for Mr. Van Nes's "bag gage." Query When is Mr Van Ness coming home ?
