Message from the Governour


September 26. — The Governour, by Mr˙ Secretary, sent down a written Message to the House, which was read, by order, and follows in these words, viz:

GENTLEMEN: As it does not appear to me that the causes of the unhappy Indian disturbances are yet at an end, but, on the contrary, that the Governour of Virginia is still prosecuting an expedition against the Shawanese, I cannot avoid recommending to your consideration the expediency of keeping the troops employed by this Government, or at least a part of them, in pay till our affairs upon the frontiers may happily have a more favourable aspect.
