It is ,a very lengthy document, and well written, and being unable to give it entire, we present our readers with the following concise synopsis which we find in the Golden Era. Gov. Bigler opens his message by stating that there never has been a period when our State was more in need of judicious and honest legislation, and expresses his entire confidence in the integrity of the members of both branches of the present Legislature. Hejustifies the embarrassing financial condition of the State by calling attention to the disadvantages under which it has labored; the failure of Congress to provide a territorial government, which imposed upon it in its infancy, when without means and without credit, the heavy expenses of a State Government; that the Legislature was compelled to issue the three per cent, bonds, the interest upon which soon amounted to more than the principal; that this act forced upon us the issuing of scrip, and the consequent payment of two prices for every State service and expense ; that upon the organization of the State Government, we were without public buildings, for the erection of which large appropriations had to be made, including $200,000 for the support of the sick and destitute ; that the Constitution provided for a Government too expensive for our incipiency—a government which even now exceeds the requirements ofthe people and the condition ef the treasury ; that our population was unsettled, and the resources of the State undeveloped. But that notwithstanding all this, the credit of the State has been well sustained abroad, and that at this time its financial condition will compare favorably with that of most of the Western States. He recommends that ample means be provided for the instruction ofthe young, and congratulates the Legislature on the condition of the School Fund, which amounts to half a million of dollars. The whole number of State prisoners amounts now to four hundred and twenty-seven. Since the month of June they have been under the supervision of the State, and the belief is expressed that henceforth escapes will be less frequent, and the expenses of the institution considerably diminished. He recommends a more strict economy in legislative expenses, and in the several departments of tbe State Government; also, biennal sessions of the Legislature, instead of annual, and such other changes in the general administration as will harmonize therewith. He recommends amendments to the Constitution, and calls attention to the absence of a provision making all constitutional amendments subject to the direct ratification of the people by ballot. The total amount of the civil indebtedness of the State, exclusive of School Fund, is $2,906,376 47. From this deduct cash in the treasury, $112,406 01, and other credits, amounting in all to $480,- 110 70, and it leaves the unprovided debt of the State, $2,324,158 76. He reiterates the unquestionable right of the Scate to extend the water front of San Francisco, which he believes can be done without injury to the harbor, and recommends that it be made the duty of a State Agent to keep a watch over the water lots, and prevent them from passing into the hands of individuals. He submits to the consideration of the Legislature the following amendments to the Constitution, from motives of economy : The abolition of the office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, the duties to devolve upon the Secretary of State. The assigning of the duties of the Quartermaster General to the Deputy Secretary of State. Also, the abolition of the Board of State Prison Directors, leaving the Warden, in connection with the Governor, Secretary of State, State Comptroller and State Treasurer, as a Board of Prison Inspectors, to manage its affairs. The number of miles of water ditches in the State, for mining purposes, amounts to 4,593 miles, which have been constructed at a cost of $6,341,700. In addition to this, one hundred and twelve canals and ditches are in process of completion. The quartz mill3 are put down at 59, which, during the past year, haye crushed 222,060 tons of rock, producing $4,082,100. Several counties are not included in the estimate. Of agricultural products during the past year, the value has been $12,897,128 ; live stock, $15,- 744,692 ; fruit trees and grape vines, $97,889 15; making an aggregate of $28,639,728 15. In view of the importance of securing to our people the benefits of inducing the Pacific whaling fleet to make the harbor of San Francisco their depot, it is recommended that a joint committee of the two Houses correspond with the owners of whaling ships in the Eastern cities, in order to elicit their views, and make them the basis of proper legislation. The necessity of an Atlantic and Pacific Railroad is urged, and Congress is called upon to provide " at an early day for the building of the road, and, if necessary, to lend the name, credit and the territory of the nation in assisting in its speedy completion." In connection with this subject, he renews the recommendation relative to the establishment, by Congress, of a sufficient number of military posts on the route between the Western frontier and the Pacific, to afford ample protection to the immigrants to this State. In relation to Asiatic immigration, the message sustains the existing laws, and deprecates any change in them offering further inducements to the Chinese to seek our shores. It recommends that no encouragement be given te their immigration hither, and claims the right of the Legislature to enact such laws as it may deem expedient, either in regard to their landing within the limits of the State or their expulsion therefrom. It is recommended that the attention of Congress be directed to the reduction of postage rates on California mail matter, which is almost twice that of any other State in the Union. The Use Jop Chloroform.—Professor Simpson states, that during the last six or seven years, few operations have been performed in Edinburgh, either in hospital or private practice, without the patient being previously anaesthetized with chloroform. During tljat period one death has occurred in the city, among the thousands who have been subjected to the use of chloroform. But during the same six or seven years, among the comparatively few operated upon there without chloroform, three or four deaths have taken place, either during or immediately after the Burgical operation. This statement, from Buch a source, is of great value. Astronomical Science.—The President of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, in his opening address at the yearly scientific gathering lately held at Glasgow, statedlhat as one ofthe results of Lord Rosse's telescope, that for the first time since the days of Newton, a suspicion has a-isen in the minds of astronomers that laws other than that of gravitation may bear rule iu space ; and that the nebula phenomena revealed to us by that telescope, must be governed by forces different from those of which we have any knowlodge. A Woman Full op Needles.—Dr. E. P. Fearing, in a communication to the Nantucket Inquirer, gives an account ofa remarkable surgical operation which he performed. He says: "In the early party of July, I was called to visit Jane James, aged 44 years. I found her very ill with peculiar symptoms, involving an obscurity as to the nature of the disease. Soon after she came under my care, a needle or pin w*as discovered near tbe pit of the stomach, lying deep seated, flatwise. I cut down and removed a perfect needle. Since that time to the present, I have frequently removed needles—eight the greatest number in one day. The who% number removed amount to sixty-two needles and a pin, supposed to be a breast-pin, with the head wanting. No doubt quite a number remain to be removed. They have been found in a scattered condition, in the region of the stomach, abdomen and left side. As the needles have been removed hei sufferings have diminished. She is said to be a woman of truth, and says she has not the slightest recollection of ever swallowing a needle or anything of the kind. However impossible it may seem, there cannot be a doubt but that she Bwallowed the needles, probably in papers, about twelve years ago, when in a state of insanity." Real New England Brown Bread.—Take equal proportions of sifted rye and Indian meal, mix them well together; add half a tea-cupful of molasses, and two gills of good yeast, to about three quarters of the mixed meal. Wet this with good new milk, sufficient to make a dough that can be easily worked, even with one hand.- For economy's sake, milk that has stood twelve hours, and from which the cream has been taken, may be a substitute for the new milk ; or water which has been pressed from boiled squash, or in which squash has been boiled, is a much better substitute than pure water. But warm water is more commonly used. The ingredients should be thoroughly mixed, and stand, in cold weather, for twelve hours ; in warm weather, two hours may be sufficient befor* baking. If baked in a brick oven, a three-quart loaf should stand in the oven all night. The same quantity in three baking-pans will bake in about three hours. Serve this warm from the oven, with good sweet butter, and we could fast upon it every morning for breakfast, from January to December.—Plow, Loom and Anvil. t jf • Naked Travelers in British India.—The Bombay Times says that the natives of the country, when three-fourths naked, take seats, in the railway cars in the presence of ladies, and insist upon their right so to do. Two Europeans recently ejected p native so clad from that positio i, and the case carftb befora the Supreme Couit. The judge solemnly decided that a native's ideas of decency were the sole criterion, and fined the European gentlemen one, hundred rupees and costs. The fine was made up to them by the exasperated community, who are determined to walk the bare skins out on every occasion, notwithstanding the law. The Belles in Greenland.—Capt. Hartstein and his company of the Relief Expedition, says the New rYork Post, had an exceedingly gay time at Disco. They were waited upon. promptly by the fairest ladies of the place, whom they entertained in the most acceptable style with butter and cranberry-sauce, with which it seemed difficult to satisfy them. When they bad eaten all they could, they joined the officers in the dance, in which they excel. We were assured by several ofthe officers that they had never seen better dancers in their lives than those Disco belles, and wh*t is more wonderful, they were perfectly familiar with the polka, the Redowa, Mazourka, and all the most recent fashionable dances of Europe. Address of Lieut. Gov. Anderson. The following address wa» delivered by Li. a1. Gov. Anderson, on taking his seat is the Senate: Senators :—Having been chosen by the people of this State to preside over your deliberations, I adopt this method of returning mysfneere thanka to those who have been my peculiar friends in elevating me to this honorable position, and, in addition, I feel it necessary to state what will be my conduct during the deliberations of this body as long as I have the honor of presiding over it. I conceive my position to be one of a neutral character, that it is my bounden duty to show as much regard to those who are politically opposed to me as to those who are my political friends. Aud if there are any who expect me to pursue » different course, then I tell them they will be disappointed, for it will be my bounden duty to treat all with the same degree of partiality and courtesy, whether opposed to or associated with me ia party. And, although I am indebted to the reform party for the position which has given me existence- as presiding officer of the Senate, yet I shall in all things endeavor to act so as to advance the welfare of the whole people of Ibis State, without respect to party orTaction. And in conclusion, I aBk those who politically differ with me, to indulge me if I show a want of legislative experience, and I further trust that our deliberations will be marked by a spirit of kindness, and forbearance. The Purchase of Cuba. We find in the New York Courier a letter from London which speaks very confidently of the possibility of acquiring Cuba by purchase. The writer admits, that Lord Palmerston will talk -'of the necessity of preserving Cuba to Spain, lest the United States acquire undue preponderance in the West Indies." " But," adds the letter, "if the United States will give two hundred millions of dollars of four per cent. Btock, one-half to be applied to the liquidation to the foreign debt of Spain, and the other half ofthe liquidatoa of the home debt, his lordship's objections go for nothing." The following financial statements well serve to show the feasibility of the undertaking : About three years ago Spain decreed, without in any way consulting her bondholders, that as she had not paid any interest for many yearsj that she would not pay it, except by reducing the interest on the capital from five per cent, down to three per cent., and by funding the arrears into a passive, debt to become active in process of time. It now isx represented thus: £9,000,000 active three per cents,-£30,000,000 passive. £52,000,000 deferred, £7,000,000 certificates. The whole of this £100,000,000 sterling of Spanish indebtedness the owners would gladly exchange for the same amount in dollars, says $100,000,000 of 4 per cent. U. S. stock ; and, as this stock, though in British currency, is largely held by Dutch, French, and Germans, it follows that the owners would become missionaries of peace, urging on their governments to compel Spain to sell Cuba. It was a sad, sad mistake when the United States bought the large slices from the Mexican territory that they did not stipulate that a portion of the payment should be iu Mexican stock. Had they done so, the capitalists would hava been only too anxious for the United States to have bought this lot of Cuba, aud would have looked anxiously forward to the time when New Grenada, including Panama. Ecuador, Venezuela, and Guatemala would have been purchased and absorbed into the Union. If wc could belieye the reports ofthe Spaniards themselves, the Minister in Madrid who would mention the sale of Cuba would be assassinated ; but the question widely alters if he adds that the money will not only release Spain from the ir- cubus of foreign debt, but also give in cash to every holder of the home debt half his elaim, and pay off the whole of the current liabilities of the Treasury. Important from xhe Plains—The Indians seeking peace. The St. Louis Democrat publishes the following extract from a private letter, dated from above Fort Pierre, 10th November, 1855 : " A few days ago, thirty or forty Sioux Indians came to Fort Pierre to pay a visit to General Harney. He held a council, and had Campbell, the' interpreter, to tell them that he wanted ten of the principal men of each band of tbe Sioux to come and see him within one hundred days ; and should they listen to his words, and do as he wants them to, it would be for their good, he would make peace with them. But if any of the bands should not come at the ab^ve time, he would then know that they wish to tight. He told them that it waa immaterial to him how they aeted, as he would just as soon fight as have peace; that he was sent by their Great Father to fight them, but since ha had killed the brutes he had pity on them. All the Indians that have'come to see him, say they don7t want to fight. They want to live. He told them that' he could not fight men that didn't want tofiffht.'" I'll Awful Scene at a Railroad Depot.—" Sean Alag." appears to be the order of the day, and we hear of another instance which may be of interest to the lovers cf such things. The names of the parties we do not see fit to give at present. Some few days since a married gentleman started for New York to transact some business, but instead of taking his legal better half, there was " something else " of the feminine gender who accompanied him. By chance, the circumstances came to the knowledge, of the injured wife, a^id she, being up to snuff, telegraphed to a friend in the great metropolis to find out, if possible, the day on which her liege lord would return, and ttie route by which he would come with his temporary companion. The friend hit the nail on the head, and last evening, at the Worcester depot, a scene occurred that waa somewhat out of the regular order consequent upon the arrival of the express train from New York. The lawful " missus " met the guilty pair, and immediately went into the female rough and tumble, giving her hair a pulling tbat would not be called a shampoo, but a real poo. The husband, undertaking to prevent this emeute, received an awful black eye from his loving partner, who marched him off to his home, we Buppose, but how he settled accounts with his wife, we will leave it to those who have strong; imaginations ta conceive, rather than to express our own conclusions, which might not be correct, uader the existing circumstances.—Boston Times. -r"r~ **»*v CO — CM CO co CM o CO O) CM •^ oo CM CM to CM CM o> ■«fr CM CO CM CM CM A TERRrBirs Case op Hydbophobia,—About two weeks since a laboring man named Cornelius Wurze, a German, employed by a farmer on Clove Road, near Flatbush, had one of his thumbs bitten by a small dog oa the place. The wound healed in a few days, and no particular attention was, paid it, but on Thursday last umrristakablfi evidences of hydrophobia were seen, and on Saturday the unfortunate man was taken to the King's County Hospital in a state of raving madness, in whieh stato.be remained for most ofthe time until Sunday, when nature becoming completely exhausted, he died. When first brought to the Hospital he was secured to the bed by strong straps, but these he broke loose from with the utmost ease, and it required the strength of four able- bodied men to manage him at all. Asjit was, he fcuoeeeded in • biting his male nurse in tlie arm through his coat seeve, so as to draw blood. Dr. Turner, of the Hospital, has taken the nurse under his charge, and he anticipates no serious consequences from the bitje,—N. Y.
