Wealth of Georgia.— A commu
nication was made by the Govern
or to the Legislature a few days
since, in compliance with a resolu
tion of the House of Representa
tives, refpefting the amount of mo
ney due this State by the General
Government, for lands ceded to
the latter by the former in** 1802,
Os the original debt, which was
one million two hundred and fifty
thouiand dollars, it appears that
three hundred anth thirty one thou
sand four hundred f aad forty one
dollars have been received in the
purchase of arms and the payment
of our quota of the Direst Tax—
leaving a balance due Georgia at
this time of more than nine hundred
thousand dollars ! It is in contem
plation, we believe, to vefl a large
portion of this sum in a state Bank,
which, if prudently managed, can’
scarcely fail to yield a considerable
revenue*—enough probably to de
fray the ordinary expences of gov
ernment, the profit on the Bank-
Stock at present held by the state
being nearly equivalents the whole
expenditure of its civil lift.
