The following message was received from His Excellency the Governor, by the Secretary of State.

To the Senate and House of Representatives:

I here with transmit to the Senate and Ilouse of Representatives the annual report of the superintendent, trustees and board of visitors of the New Hampshire Asylum for the Insane. These documents speak for themselves, and well deserve the attention of the legislature, and of the public. They disclose, in language not to be mistaken, the gratifying fact of the success of that benevolent institution, and leave nothing to be wished for except a fund to enable the trustees to aid those who are unable to support theinselves. That private as well as public support should be extended to an institution, so well calculated to insure comfort if not entire relief from that worst of all maladies, insanity, no one, think, can doubt.
