The citizens of Roxbury, in town meeting, have, by a large majority, decided to petition the Legisla ture for a city charter. Thia town adjoint Boston, and the bulk of its population is located near the Boston line, and la composed, in e great measure, of pao. pie whosa business is in Boston. A census of tho town has recantly bean taken, which shows tho population to ba about thirtoon thousand, naarly double what it was Bve years ago. As the business of Boston increases, ?nd rents become exorbitantly high, tha surplus popula tion emigrates to the neighboring towns, the facilities of [ communication between them and tho city being good, either by omnibuses or railroad cars. Many thriving villages an in thia way growing up around us, and thara is quite a disposition among our citizens to get into the country Roxbury will be the fourth city in the State, Boston, Lowell, and Salem being the other three.

The G tremor's Message?Speedy Resumption Certain? j New Year's Merit?Stack Beard?Markets?fc. The Governor'! Menage was received last night, and its great length prevents me from furnishing you a full synopsis of this important document as 1 promised. That portion which refers to a speedy resumption of the pay ment of Interest on the State debt, is most satisfactory, ; and will doubtless have a favorable effect on the standing of our stock. The entire debt of the State, bearing interest, amounts to $11,900,784. The annual interest on the public debt is $066,491, and there has been paid, during the past year, $710,784?being $66,908 more than the amount of inter- | est accruing within that timo. The actual arrears of . interest now due, is $1,370,891, being $66,303 less than | it was one year ago, with a surplus of $199,413 in the treasury. This amount of interest dne, with that which may ac crue up to the 1st of July, 1846, he recommends should be funded, and an equitable rate of interest fined there on; and opposes the proposition made last session, that the operation or the sinking fund be stopped, and its pro ceeds appropriated to the extinguishment of this funded interest, as a violation of the faith ol the State pledged to her creditors and citizens. The present amount of the sinking fund is $1,404,000, whioh is progressively in creasing by the quarterly re-investment of the interest accruing on it The adoption of a certain period of resumption is strongly urged, and the 1st of October next recommen ded as the time for the good work Should the interest due up to next July be funded at three per cent, the amount then required to be raised an nually, for the payment ol interest, will be $715,341. The Governor then shows, by a table of items, that during the next year, by a prompt and energetic enforcement of the tax laws, the sum of money which earn be raised from the direct tax, including that due for arrears is $1,094,000. The stamp act of last suasion, on promissory notes, deeds, tec , u defended at length, as being both equitable and just, and further legislation recommended to ensure its more extended enforcement. He also recommends that a tax of ten per cent on every lottery ticket be also added to the present provisions of the law. The Governor demands of the legislature an increase of poser to enable him to enforce the collection of all the taxes that are in arrear, that the credit of the State may be redeemed and alludes to.the responsibility of the Kiaition they jointly ocoupy. He believes that now is e accepted time, and to them is accorded the distin guished privilege of redeeming the honor and credit ol the State He asserts that there is not a citizen of the State who is worthy to be called her son, who does not feel shame at the position she now occupies, and who will n -t hail with applause their efficient action to place her, now and for the future, in the position of right which she should occupy _ In short, the message is of that active practical charac tor which distinguished Gov. Pratt's inaugural address, the adoption of the recommendations of which has pro duced so happy a result in the financial affairs of the State. At the end of the first year of his administration, instead of. finding two thirds of the taxes uncollected, and the public debt increased $100,000, as had been the case for three previous years, we find the interest for the year paid, and $64,000 of arrearages also wiped off from the stained escutcheon of the State With sufficient power to enforce the present laws, he deems that suffi cient revenue can be obtained, without further taxing the people, to . warrant the resumption of the pay ment of the interest on the public debt, and depend on it, the pow> r will be given him, and the result anticipa ted fully seoured. The bells are merrily hailing the dawn of the new year, as 1 write, and Jack Frost has once more assumed h slight sway over the liquid element. The sun is, how ever, rising clear, and will soon dispel adl marks of his visit. The weather, for a week past, has been as mild as we usually have in the month ot March. Stock Boaxo.?Baltimore 6's, 1890, opened at 97], ad all sales of ' vanced to 98, and closed with sales at 98] ; small Maryland 0's sold at 78. The Governor's Message will doubtless cause an advance to-day. Thk Mabkkts.?The flour market is very inactive Sales of a few hundred barrels Howard street and City Mills were made yesterday at $6 36, which is the curieut raie. There were small sales of good to prime red wheat yexterday at 105 a 1U7 cents. Very litle in market. The demand for whiskey is very limited, and prices tend downwards. Small sales at 36 for hhd?, and 37 for bbls. New Orleans, Dec. 23,1845. The Mar kit t?State of Navigation?Theatricalt Neto England Celebration. There is nothing of any interest going on at the present time in the city, and business is rather doll. The cotton market continues about the same, sales of about 3,600 bales having been made yesterday at the old rate*. The receipts yesterday were 3,930 bales. The rivers are in a terrible state. Soch a low stage ot water has never been known before. The Okie, at the last accounts, was closed with ice, and on the bars in the Mississippi there is scarcely water enough to float a ve ry inferior class of steamers. Boats have been snagged in all parts of the river, and many of the passengers? the German and Irish emigrants especially?have been landed, and are obliged U? camp out, and are hardly able to procure sufficient food to sustain life. In many in stances they have been compelled to go ashore, miles from any habitation, to save their lives. Tho tributary streams are, of course, almost enti'sly dried up. We have an abundance of wet weather here, and plenty of rainy and cold, uncomfortable days. Coal has advanced to $1 per barrel, and it is very scarce at that. We have had one or two flne days lately, which.have tended to raise our drooping spirits. The theatres are doing a very fair business. Booth, who has remained in this city ever since his last engage ment, is up for a two night engagement at the St. Charles. " Time Woiks Wonders," was produced at this theatre last night, with indifferent success. Chippendale and the Skerrets are still there. Dan Marble commences an engagement next Saturday. Mr. O. E. Durivage, the Boston comedian, made his first app?aranoe in this city at the Amerioan, on Sunday night, to tho belt house of the season, in " Great Attraction," a Yankee faree writ ten by himself?and made a great hit He repeated the character last night, and was even more successful than < n the preceding occasion. To-night he appears in an other farce, alio written by himself, called " Cnt and Come Again." He will shortly produce his celebrated burlesque of " Richard No. III.," which was so success ful in New York. The " Sable Harmonists" are also at this theatre. The French opera is doing a fair business. Tho New England Society celebrated the anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrim Fathers, yesterday. An address was delivered by the Hon. 8. 8. Prentiss, and a dinner given at the 8t. Charles. Every thing went off in the best possible manner. Sporting Intelligence. The Louisiana Association Jobcv Club Races ?

They got a fair start, and for half a mile it was a beautiful contest; John, however, soon after took the lead, and kept it to the end of the heat. comiDg out winner by about two lengths. The second heat was run pretiy much as the first, until the horses reached the last quarter stretch, when John oame it with a perfect rush, ceming out about five lengths ahead The trotting match created much interest: there were thiee entries, and it was well contested There were three beats, Mr. Motrin's Prince Albert winning the first and third, and Mr. Warner's Jerry, the second.? Green Mountain, although unsuccessful in taking a heat, cat out the work for bis competitors, and kept them well up to it. Thero were three entries for Friday's race?Mr. Har ris' Mirabeau, Mr. McAlpin'a Rosenante, and Mr. Clem ons' Wild Bill; but two started, Mirabeau and Wild Bill. They got off well together, at e killing speed, and be fore the mile was fiuished, it was evident Wild Bill was done for, sod Mirabeau came in ai ?asjr winner. The time was good, considering the slate of the track, which was very heavy. The deer race is described as very interacting, parti cularly the last one started, which no sooner found him self at liberty, than he gave the audience French leave, by jumping the fence. About thirty horsemen, with dogs, were soen in hot pursuit, and they had it for about eight miles, before he was captured.

We can only account for this by the spreading influence ef that saint and patron " 1 lough." and possibly some little credit is due to the effective manner the police was organized by the Mayor and Chief of Police. The streets through the whole night were absolutely thronged with gangs of men and boys, of all colors, rich and poor, dressed fantastically. We saw heading one of these gangs a chap dressed in the Indian costume, whom they called " Bi^ Thunder," with a trail of between two and three hundred, dressed in the most whimsical manner, passing along Church 1, blowing p street, with broom sticks, clubs, blowing penny whistles, life and drum, lie.
