ly taxed to meet them. So far they have fully met the demands, but it is apparent to any person that will pass over them that extensive repairs are now much needed, and must be made, or they will be broken down and rendered useless. Besides great difficulty is experienced in procuring cross ties and the necessary supply of wood for fuel. Labor is indispensably necessary to relieve them, and so far as legislation can aid them I am satisfied it will be cheerfully extended. The Central, Orange and Alexandria, are the Virginia and Tennessee roads have more to apprehend from raids than any of the other roads in the State, and this apprehension makes it difficult to procure labor on reasonable, or indeed on any terms. The owners of slaves are unwilling to hire them on these lines, lost they may be seized and carried off, or may be induced to abscond.--Under these circumstances they very properly desire that the subject shall be brought to your attention.

In some cases five per cent. of the slaves is called for, and in other cases less than one per cent. Thus, Amelia, with upwards of 7,000 slaves assessed with taxes in 1862, is required to furnish 50, while Alleghany, with less than 700, is required to furnish 30. The county of Albemarle, with 12,681, is called upon for 200, while Brunswick, with 9,212, is called upon for 250. The county of Augusta, with 4,460 is called upon for 80, while the county of Rockingham, with 2,164 is called upon for 100. Hanover, with 8,621, is called upon for 80, while Prince Edward, with 6,998, is called upon for 150. These examples will suffice to show how unequally this burden is distributed; and I trust that some amendment will be made to the law, which will afford protection against such inequality.

too earnestly press its claims upon your support and favor. I trust it will be your pleasure to adopt the recommendations made in the reports, and thus place it upon a firm and enduring basis, and enable it gradually to extend the sphere of its usefulness. Since the commencement of this war Virginia has been called upon to month over the loss of many of her gallant sons; but of all her jewels, the most brilliant was the if insidious Lieutenant General Thomas J. Jackson--a graduate of West Point — highly distinguished in the Mexican war, and at the opening of the present war a quiet and unpretending professor in our State Military institute. He was called from the professor's chair to the field, and his sagacity, his energy, and the unparalleled success which crowned his efforts, won for him a reputation that made him the pride of his own State, endeared him to the people of the Confederacy, attracted to him the attention of the nations of the earth, and compelled the respect an
present Superintendent the discipline and management is greatly improved. I have heretofore submitted various recommendations in my communications to the two Houses; and without repeating those recommendation I will content myself with calling attention to them. They are accessible to all having been published in the documents of the past three years. In this connection, I also invite your attention to the very able report on this subject prepared by Commissioners Haymond, Johnston, and Campbell. This report contains recommendations and suggestions of much value and importance, and I commend them to your favorable consideration. This is a matter of practical importance, and requires early attention. The interests of the State demand that the reforming hand of the Legislature should be applied to it.--With a regular supply of raw material, so as to keep the convicts constantly employed, and with an intelligent and judicious application of their labor, we may reasonably that
