The Governor the same day transmitted to the Legislature a letter from Secretary Seward, urging that expenditures be made by the State for the defence of its coast, which he had no doubt that Congress would sanction and reimburse; also, a letterry, the Governor writes three letters, in regard to our coast defences,—one to the President, one to our Senators and Representatives in Congress, and one to Secretary Seward,—in which he argued the importance of the subject, and that the General Government authorize it to be done by the State, as the State can do it with more expForbes, Esq., of Boston, one of the most eminent citizens and business men of Massachusetts.
