Governor Neil reports on the state of public schools-- they "have not, as yet, accomplished any grand results, nor have they reached a very high degree of efficiency and usefulness." But they've made "commendable progress." The "recent discovery of rich and extensive belts of mineral, and the certain advent of railroads," result in inflows of capital. The "most enlightened public sentiment of the age" requires protection for the rights of married women. Fortunately, Indian disturbances have been few.
