advisable not to advertise for proposals for the loans, and I recommend the passage of an act directing the payment to be made out of the money in the Treasury. As the omission of Congress to act on this subject involved an unprecedented disregard of the good faith of the national authorities, I recommend that the Legislature take measures for procuring an appropriation at the next session of Congress. The revenue bill passed at the last session has been found to be defective in several points, and I recommend a careful and immediate revision of it. The bounty bill passed at the last session is found to be defective and unjust in many of its provisions, and from the manner in which it is administered in some parts of the State, oppressive on the people. I therefore recommend a careful revision of it, as the present session has been called for the consideration of matters of vital public importance. I recommend them to your earnest and exclusive attention.
