The following Answer to the Speech ol the Governor, was reported by Mr. Colden, was adopted in Assembly on Tuesday. The only pail which railed forth debate, was that relative to canals The whole was finally adopted, ayes 64, uoes 38. To hit Enelleney Dt H iU Clinlun, Governor of tlie State of A'ew tor. Sir, The representatives of the people in the houe of assembly of the stale of ew York, have mer your Excellent.',) on die opening ol the present session, with those frcliiigfc which the 'peace, happiness and prof perity ol our country ought ta umpire, and with a perfect consciousness, that il is their duty xralouslv to coucur with thr co - ordinate branches of ti e government in every measure which mty preserve, inviolate our republican institutions, improve the condition ol our cOe, and add to the character and honor ol the state. They leel themselves bound also to listen with the uiost respectful attention to those recommendations lor our good government, welfare and prosperity, which the constitution requires the Executive to submit Iu the Legislature. The view your Excellency bus exhibited of our internal concerns, while it points our attention to some matters reciuiriiiir Iruinlutive interposition, must be gratifying to all who leel an interest and pride in the honor and prosperity of our country. Thr iui'iirmiitioii vou have been uleased to afloril on the various subjects embraced in your first con iiiuuiciilion to the Legislature, is such as must lie important to guide and assist us in the discharge ul the duties w hich we arc assembled to tittrlitrtn We are well awnre of the great importance of ngirculliiic, not onlv as it is the basis ol ihewewn of a slate, but us its pursuit is that employment w hicb gives to man his most noble character. In the yeuiiirnry of a country are always found the virtues on which it must rely for its prosperity, its honor and its dcftuice. A fruitful soil, industriously cultivated, under n free eovernmeut, produces men with bodies inured to labor and fatigue, and with minds incapable of enduring any other condition than that ol freemen. The hopes which were cherished by the founders of our government, subsequent event have realised. In the struggle which established our freedom and independence, it was our hardy eomen - ry that fought our battles ; and in the war which of late so gloriously terminated, when the veteran bauds of au invading foe were lo be resisted, they found the breasts of the sons of our soil presenting an impenetrable barrier, and soldi T long practised in Ihe trade of war, were defeated by an armed yeomanry, railed together in a moment of nrril bv the voice of their rouutrv. The connection between agriculture and several of the arts and science is obvious, and every en lightened legislature must admit, that to promote and add respectability to the first, encouragement ami protection must oe giveu in inr oiurrs. iu - stitulions which may collect, and again diffuse a knowledge of agriculture, and inviie the kindred sciences to her aid, cunnot but be beneficial and deserving the public patronage. The riches of the ugii ultuiist are the surplus prodece of his soil, or that which is more than necessary to supply hi own wants ; but these will not add to Ins wealth, unless he has the means of disposing of fhenr In a country where every cultivated farm allbnls the owner nil that he requires for his support, therecan he no sale from one to the oilier, of articles with which each is provi ded by his own industry. The farmer must, there - lure, generally, look tor lus market at a distance, and where manufactures anil commerce have col lected a populntiou dependent on the lubors ol others for the immediate necessaries uf life. The producer's profit will generally depend on the facility with which his commodities can be transported, and tspon the ease and rapidity with which communications mav be made by water courses roads and canals. The prosperity of commerce is ulso obviously connected with these objects. The merchant must derive an silvaiiiago from every measure that enables the farmer to dispose of his produce expeditiously and cheaply. The trade of a conn try depends on the price at which it can allord to sell its surplus articles, ana mat country will be the most wealthy vtliich has roost to spare, and can supply the wants of others at the cheapest rate. We are therefore fully sensible, that we should endeavor to remedy any delects tiiat there mny lie in the laws relative to turnpike roads, and that it is amoiiff our first duties liv eerv menus a discreet exercise of our power will permit ; and w itlioul regard to local considerations or geograpn - icnl distinctions', to facilitate the transportation of commodities by opening aud ameliorating all the channels ot beneficial intercourse. Our principal river is certainly among the most imtinrisnt ol these, and it u very desirable, that all obstructions to its navigation should be removed. We cannot but believe that Ihe bad success of the efforts, heretofore made on this subiect, has been owing to the mistaken principles on which they have lieen conducted, and to a want of due consideration of the natural causes by which the impediments are produced. W e shall not be unmindful of your Excellency V recommendation ol this subject to our particular attention, nor indisposed lo bestow upon it a fall share ol the muuihceuce olthe state. The manufactures of a country, demand the at tention of every eoveriiinrnt which means to pre sei ve a real and perfect independence ; not only as they me at all times condiaive to uie general prosperity, but as tliey enable ner to rely on tier own resiHin es when war interrupts her foreign nterroiirse. Experience has afforded us a lesson on this subiect, which should never lie obliterated from our memories. We have seen this nation dependent on her enemy for some articles of the first necessity lor our ew u armies, and our wants in this respect were too freqiienllv supplied bv trea sonable violations of the duties of our citizens. The patriotic real with which maiiv embarked in manufactures, deserves treat consideration. The powers of the state government, in relation In this subject, are coiiluird tn narrow limits i.y tlie national constitution ; but we are bound to exert those powers to the creates! extent, that a due re gard to the general welfare will permit and we feel the niore incited to this by the open avowal made in the councils ot our hrst and liut enemy, that it was her policy to prostrate those manufac tures, which she saw rapidly rising in our country, and which she perceived would soon render us as independent of bcr workshops, as w e are of her government. The advantages which must result, not only to this stale, but to the world, from the completion of the contemplated communications between the in land seas on our borders, and the Atlantic Ocean, so manliest, that we cannot but express the treat satisfaction w ith which we learn from your Excellency that they have been auspiciously commenced ami arc in successful progress. '1 his satisfaction is greatly increased by the information vou have given us, that this stupendous work may be performed at an exense, not exceeding in the aggregate, the estimates ef the Commissioners, ami mat our resource" are tuny adequate to mem without extraneous aid e believe that no pan of the world affords so many natural advantages for the execution of such an oodcrtakmg. Inexhaustible reservoirs Ivinr above tlie level of tlie canal, in everv Dart of its course a country not interceoted bv riders or mountains, which com mon I v separate the heads of water courses, are in themselves advantages, thst no wot of the same kind ban, as we believe, ever before enjoyed. The great causes ot expense in the execution of similar projects, bee" "be necessity of passing nmmiiioii which were situated the foun tains which supplv the water, and the works on that account necessary to economise tbe use ol that element. The effects of opening these communications can .x h hut indistinctly seen iu their extent. They will reach every member of tlie community. They must lie felt by every of the United Sfai'rs and indeed, so imiiortant an alteration in the natural disposition of the lands and waters of the earth. raniiul but hive an influence on live con dition of mankind. It will afford the means of easy 1 intercourse wiin an internal see. coasi, cottnectoJ with immeasurable tracts of fruitful soil, not inferior in extent to the shores of the Mediterranean. When these works are accomplished, a w ater com munication between the lakes it the Mississippi, her vi or tiMvusana miles ol ntmgable streams snay be made without difficultv and at inconsider able expense. The commerce of an immense spare willbe ledlo the Hitduton. If this should be Use result ef the great eaterprize iu which we are ea - gage.l, Ncw - Yotk ill i:ve adva.itag - i infinitely i greater any city has ever bad ; and !.. i ust forever enjoy them without a lival. Thi cos - merce of tlie Mediterranean is the support v' many great commercial cities ; Uit fvew - York will . stand alone at the cntraifre ot this eiiin..iv chats nel, and must be a grra'er emporium than ever - called herself the mistress of commerce. Besides the advantages which your Excellency has enumerated, and which is so obvious will be the result of the accomplishmeetof this stupendous work, there is certainly a natiowal (doty connected with the enterpnr.r,cnlculated to exevte the pride of every patriot. heU we consider that everv portion of the nation will feel tlit animating spirit, and vivifying influence of these great works; thai they til receive the benedictions ef posterity and rommunu the approbation ot the civilized world, we arc requirwl fr persevere, so fur as a prudent regard to the resource! tue state will nermit. bv everv consideration which ourht to influence tfie consciences and govern the c on - dact of a free, enlightened and magnanimous people. . '" Attention to the education of youth, and to the promotion of literature, science and the arts, is among the lngliet duties ol toosewno arermruM - ed with authority in a repiiblic. All societies and institutions which are devoted to tnese i.ujecis rc entitled to the countenance ofthe government.. - The fund appropriated to schools and academies,. we agree with your Excellency in considering as a sacred provisiou for the education of the present nnd nil future rcnerktions, which ought never ta be disturbed, diverted or impaired. We learn with groat satisfaction, that the pul - llr patronage has born so conducive to moral and intellectual cultivation, and we shall be happy to co - operate in every measure that may advance the the interest of institutions which we are well con' . vinced are intimately allied with the glory and prosperity of tire state. The view your excellency has presented of our fidmce," is certainly encouraging. The plan you J yopose for the reduction of our debt, and the regulation of our fiscal concerns ; youc ret ommcudatiod of economy, and judicious retrenchments, shall receive the most respectful consideration,' and we rall be happy to avail ourselves of such objects of revenue as ma authorise a reduction of the exiting tax, aud will at the same time afford protection lo our regular traders, reliefto our manufactures, auJ enlarge Ihe fund for internal improvements. . However pacific our own disposition .nay he, and howcier scrupulously we may refpecf lh,e rights of others, we well know, thai we art cub - ' staidly exposed to the injustice of forsigu rRl.otn, and that we never tan he assured, that the time is distant when we may be snmmoued to delmd) our country, assert her rights, or vindicate her honor. It would be unworthy of our condition, as a free and independent state, not to be prepared for such an event. When it arrives, our reliance must be on tbe militia. It would be the height ot imprudence nut to give this natural force all the strength of which il is capable - We shall consider it our duly to ascertain what improvements may be made in the organixa'ion, dress and discipline of the militia ; in the imposition, distribution and collectica of fines, and ia lb encouragement of meritorious services or diss tmguisheU skill. It is c ertainly incumbent on the legislature, whenever will permit, to comply with that part ofthe ronstitu - tion, which ordains, that tbe sailitia shall at all times be armed and disciplined, and ready for service, and that proper magatines ol warlike stores shall be established, maintained and continued. We regret to learn, that the expenses of the system of criminal jurisprudence, which was established in 1796, has been so enormous J and we deeply regret to be informed, thai it has pot stood the test of experiment. But a rysttaa which every feeling of humanity is interested ia preserving, if il will supercede in any degree the necessity of capital punishments, we think, should not be abandoned but under the fullest conviction, that its failure to realise the expectations of benevolence is owing to its intrinsic defects, and not to the manner in which its execution has been attempted. Want of prison room ; the injudicious organization ofthe board of su - perintendflnre ; repeated changes in that body. and the frequency of pardons, no doubt, have produced very detrimental effects. The basis cf the system is the certainty of punishment !y an infliction ofthe lull penalties of Uie law. f this part of it has not been executed, its efficacy has never been tried ; and we ought not to' conclude that it is ineffectual, when it has not been sub jected to a fair experiment There are also a variety of circumstances which ought to be considered, when we attempt to draw conclusions unfavorable to tins mode of umsliiuent (rem the increase of crimes. We should advert to Ihe increase of our population and the nature of that increase. A connderable part has arisen from Ihe emigration of crrons who have been reduced to indieeoce bv the late distractions of Europe, nnd of many whose hearts have been hardened and morals corrupted by the rupacinus and sanguinary scenes to which they, have been accustomed. We should also take in - lo consideration the extraordinary state of our own country for many years past. Tbe disturbances of the rest of the world could not hut have) their effects up us, long beloie tliey produced tne war in wmcn we nave rieen engagea. war political situation gave birth to a species of commerce which broke dowo all the habits of regu lar trade ; and while it often brought us wealth, it introduced a mode of doing business nnd a spirit of sjieculation extremely uiifriet.dly to morals.' Great and frequent adventures produced great and frequent bankruptcies t and it was not al ways, that the man win. quit - Ins habits n indus try with the expectation of suddenly acquiring wealth, would resume them gain to save bite - self irom poverty and crime. Tt must also be re collected, that temptations to commit, and laci - li'ies ol perpetrating crimes, connected with our paper currency, are infinitely greater than they ever were in any other country. We therefore think, this system should not be abandoned, until we are perfectly satisfied, tLat it is greatly less effectual than any ouier mojc et punuhme nt, and mat we win not ce w.rramcis in comire to this conclusion, until Ihe execution of it has been fairly tried in all its parts. Your excellency's suggcsiions tor promoting th ffiracv of the penitentiary system, by the erection of solitary cells in tbe counties, for the punishment of inferior offence of conditions I nardons for reducing tbe expense of adtnmis - u rin criminal justice, shall receive the coasida - ration whicn tneir importance uemauus. Oui laws in relation to debtors and cred lion,' vreare fully persuaded, require revision, not only to protect the creditor from the frauds of his debtor, but as to what is more interesting to humanity to protect the debtor from the unjust ' severity of his creditor. - 1 The theory of our civil code is, ia this respect, scarcely less barbarous than any that ever existed. For though a creditor ma not tell or murder by open violence his debtor; yet our ' laws allow a creditor, first to strip his debtor of all his meant of subsistence, &ih! then confine ' him within tbe four naked walls of a prison, where 3 the latys thenxelves do not provide, or compel the creditor to provide, either for feeding, clothing, or wurnsing him.
