I iherefcrenhink you will admit that I
did not predict too much for Nebraska
trhen 1 said to you, in my last annual
wesfage in alluding to these and to the
ether jrailroads which were proposed to
be built ihTcuch car Territory, that:
'Yiih these magnificent works success
fully prosecuted to completion, connecting
us directly with the gr?at cities of the
Atlantic aiid Pacific with thet advant
age of the Homestead, a virgin and
fertile oil, of f xhautj salt springs,
with a climate an eolubriutis as exists
in.lhe, w.orld, iione can hentate to pre
die' for Netraata j;igatjtic stride iu the
attainment cf wtalih and power."
At a former session of the Legisla
ture, I called the attention cf members
to the prevailing evil, io common every
where, of deferring, till the closing
hours of the seiion. the passage of most
of the acts or bills of the session. Tins
practice is 'sometimes fraught with much
mischief, 8nd often with great wrong to
the people. It is madti the duty of the
Governor to examine- "every bill which
shall have parsed the Council and House
of Representatives" and he is. required
either 4Sto sisn or return it wiih his ob
jections." You will, I hive no duubt be
astonished when I tell you that out of
about cue hundred acts and joint resolu
tions "p-isstd at the List session, mere
than one half 'of them were presented
and signed on the last day of the ses
sion; and yet that session was no excep
tion in this particular !o the gvaaial rule.
Let this Legislature, I entreat ygu, set
. a new example in this particular, and let
your work not only te well d $ex but
. done promptly.
During your last sfsicn, a joint reso
lution was passed, askirj- Congress to
pass an act to enable the people of Ne
braska to form a Constitution prepara
tory to an early admission into the Union
as one cf the Independent States. Con-
' gress psssed the act, but it was doue
" near the close of the session, and there
" was scarcely' time enough allowed be
tween the. date cf the reception cf the
bill in the Territory and. the election of
the members of the Convention, for the
. people to learn of its passage certainly
1 not enough to enable them to consider,
thoroughly and di.-rassiccately the prin
ciples of the bill or the terms on which
it was proposed to admit' the Territory
' into the family of Slates. Under these
circumstances, a large majority of the
people decided that the members of the
Conversion' t-houlJ adjourn without form
ing or submitting any Constitution what
ever. This decision of the people, under
' the circumstances, was juit what might
hare been anticipated.- It however, is
no proof that when convinced that libe
ral rerms are proposed by the general
Government they wculd not readily con
Wat to take their place in the great fam
' ily of States'.' One of the great and
' leading objects of forming Territorial
' Governments, is to take the first step' to
" wards making a State. This it doubt
" less the object and aim of all Territories.
' Tiie strongest argument used sgaiust
the admission into the Unix;n, by thoe
' who opposed it, is 'perhaps, the last one
". that should be resorted to by the friends
of our Government. ' I allude to the ar
gumenl thai we ought not to tax ourselves
for anything whkli the geneial Govern
ment is willing or is bound to pay. In
other words, that so long as vhe general
Government is willing to pay the ex
penses of the Territory, so long should
the people refuse to change their form 'of
-ready to admit that our Government las
quite as much as it can 'well do to main
tain itself against its wick ed enemies
who are trying to overthrow it ; u.d it
seems to me that all kyal and Union
loving people should be willing to assist
bearing their proper hardens ; at least,
that they should no, longer insist on
drawing from the general Gpvernment
that which we might provide for jour
felves. Your own knowledge rof the
Irishes of the people beinf fresh,' from
their midst will enable you to decide
whether or not the perple would desire
any further action at present on this
subject. I'shall therefore leave the whole
subject with. you, believing that you will
decide th matur in accordance with
their wishes. " :
. ' After this bri?-f reiew of the condi
tion of public atuirs, it may not be deem
ed improper, I trust, for me to r. ake a
brief -perM;r.al allusion. This raay be.
and prpbably is, the last annual Message
I shall ever present for your cemidera
tion. The period fer which I was select
ed to fill the office of Chief Executive of
ttie Territory, is rapidly drawing tp a
close. : It is due to myself to say that it
has been my constant aim to discharge
tLe duties of the office faithfully, impart
tiilly and ffficiently. bearing constant
ly in mind that the yreat and only true
object of government, is to obtain the
greatest security of life, liberty and prop,
eny. That on the relative safety of these,
depend the real happiness and prosperi
ty.of every community. I have earnest
ly desired that the scales of justice ehould
beheld evenly balanced between man
cd man ; that every interest should re-
ire just protection, and that the laborer
I erywhere should securely reap the
ceeds cf his toil. I have most earn
iy debited to aid ic establishing a good
"to th exTstericToT"a Republic and the
development of lb natural resources, of
our Territory, b encouraging the erec
tion of railroads, and bridges, by the en
courage mem of immigration, and by the
introduction of improved stock. I have
al.-o fr.dearorcd to aid the other Territo
rial officers in the work of so managing
the financial affairs of the Territory so
as to relieve the people from the
large Territorial dbl that has so long
been s. burden to therm How far I have
succeeded in these aims and wishes, must
be left for others to judjje. None how
ever, tan regret any manifest short-comings,
niore than mysHf. It is also -due
to my feelings, that I should epress my
gratitude to you, and through you to the
people of the Territory for the kind and
generous manner in which 1 was receiv
f ed ar,d have been uniformly treattd by
each of you at the different sessions of
the Legislature, and by the people at
large. '.' " . -
Although the labors and duties of the
Executive otil ;e are onerous, and to some
t-xteut irk.-ome, yet the candid manner
in which all my recommendations have
been received by ycu and your predeces
sors, and the cenerous responses by the
people of the Territory, to all demands
that I have had to make upon them, ha
more than compensated tne for. all my
anxious solicitude and labor. . ."
In conclufien, I would say that I will
most cheerfuiiy co-operate with you dur
ing the present session, in perfecting
such measures as the public safety and
welfare may require, acl your wisdom
devise, and expressing the hope that at
the conclusion of your deliberation, on
your mum to your homes, you may re
ceive the approval of an enlightened auJ
generous constituency. .

The Council having refolved itself in
to Committee of the Whole, on the 14th,
iast., for the consideration of Council
Bill No. 7. a bill to encourage agricul
ture, promote the growth of timber rand
fruit trees.and restrain stock from' runing
at large in the Territory of Nebraska,"
with the pending amendments reponed
by the committee on Agriculture, A. S.
Holladay. of Nemaha, said:
JUr. Chairman : Has Nebraska made
that progress commensurate with 4 her
natural advantages of soil, climate and
geographical position ? Clearly she has
not. Other Territories, not' her equals,
have grown sid increased in population,
and long since entered into the sister
hood of States.
And, now, why has Nelraska been
outstripped and left still in her svvadliiig
clothes ? Her citizens have not "slept on
iheir posts" have not relaxed ihidir
efforts in turning the ti Je of emigration
- - . " .
to her beautiful lanos. Again, I ask,
why all this?. Is it the fault of Nebras-
kians ? I answer no ! The early set
tlers have long and iai'lhfuily worked to
lo swell our pjpulatiou. Is it to lie laid
at lh door of the general Government!
1 also' emphatically answer no! Our
present noble and patriotic Administra
tion has bent.ficiently saiJ ' to ihe hoiiu'

As he beholds our almosi boundless ocean
of prarire, his heart, buoyant with the
expectation of. finding a- home, sinks
down detp under the chilling waves of

admires the ' conntry, but cannot obtain
the oi.ject for which he'eame,' and must
settle elsewhere.' '' ' ' ' "
. Let u? look facts in'-ihe face. ' Some
thing must be done, and thai speedily, or
a decrease in our population instead of
an increase, must be the inevitable re
sult. Wfesee that Homestead Laws arid
Emigratioa Societies have been and are
still futile in opening up the Virgin 'soil
of Nebraska. Ten years have elapsed
since our Territoral birth and still we
wear the paraphernalia of ' infancy.' The
cause 'of our feeble condition must be
apparent to all. We want population
we want our lovely valleys and wide
spread savanas dotted over with the hab
itations f the industrious tanner
want to rise from a condition of Terri
torial dependence to one of dignity and
independence among the Union of Slates.
Taking these "and many other thought
lulu careful eous deration, 1 am forcer
to the conclusion that, sooner or later,
the bili now pending,' or a similar one,
must become law of unavoidable ncces'.

' With such facts, glaring and palpable,
is it not astonishing that objections are'
urged to the passage of the'Law ?' Bul
these, I believe,' are made generally by
men who have been fortunate enough tp
obtain a few acres of timbered land. To
such objectors, let me replV in the words
of Hi! Excellency, the Governor of the
Territory ; . ,
'llut granting all that may be said , on
the subject of the; scarcity of timber,,
have we no way by which we can insure,

Because we can boast of cur gigantic

shoull not interpose an eternal barrier to

suffer from the rejection of this bill not

he wlo has it not ! those who will be
