The Legislature of Massachusetts convened at Boston on the 3d inst. The Governor's message says that the expenses of the war to that State, so far, have been nearly $3,385,000. It recommends that the States assume the collection of a direct tax to furnish its proportion of twenty million of dollars authorized by Congress to be levied upon the different States. Massachusetts has furnished twenty-nine regiments of infantry, six batteries of artillery, two companies of sharp-shooters, and five rifle battalions.

Gov. Andrews says at the close of his message that ‘"the great rebellion must be put down and its promoters crushed beneath the ruins of their own ambition. The greatest crime of history must receive a doom so swift and sure that the enemies of popular government shall stand in awe while they contemplate the elastic energy and concentrative power of the democratic institutions of a free people."’
