New OniJEANB, April 14.?Got. Kol
logg's messago to tho General Assombly
was sent in to-day. It is an elaborate
document. He says: "Tho occasion of
this extraordinary session marks a new
and, I trust, a better era in the history of
our State. The history of Louisiana,
since its incorporation into the Union, as
summarized in the messages of the suc?
cessive Governors, from G-ov. Cloiborne
to the recent times, has been unhappily
prolific of race antagonism and sectional
jealousies and disorders. Though second
to no State in natural advantages of cli?
mate, soil and products, it has fallen far
behind other less favored States in the
development of its resources and in the
cultivation of that homogeneity of feel?
ing and interest without which no com?
munity can be permanent or prosperous.
The causes of this lack of progress and
unity in the post have been us varied as
the ills that have resulted. Some are
beyond the pale of legislation; they con
only be remedied by the action of time
in removing present prejudices and eras?
ing the memory of past traditions.
Others are the result, of the peculiar
character of the population of the State
and the prevailing diversities of raoe, re?
ligion and language. Others again, nnd
these by no means the least considerable,
have sprung from the improvident and
oppressive legislation of late years, in?
cluding that of 1865 and 1867, which
have managed to subordinate the mate?
rial interests of the State to the enforce?
ment of partisan purposes and the
Secnniary- aggrandizement of indivi
uols. j It would serve no good purpose
to review in detail the events of our re
cent history. The unfortunate past, I
with whatever mistakes and wrongs may
have been committed on either side, is
before yon. . The consequences of these
mistakes and wrongs, more eloquent than
any language I could use, are also before
you. It is your privilege to correct, re?
medy or at least alleviate them, and,
more important still, to' offer guarantees
that such events shall not.cgoin occur.
After a political contest, the length and
bitterness of which have been unparal?
leled, a poliey has at last been adopted,
which, 1 think, should have been tried
at first, and -which, I trust, will afford an
immediate and satisfactory solution of
the difficulties that have beset us for
years and entailed misfortune and dis?
tress npon the people. It is a most hope?
ful sign in my opinion when,- as now,
citizens of all political parties seem in?
clined to take the management of this
affair into their own hands and,' sinking
party aims, unite to advance the general
Regarding the State revenues and
their collection and disbursement, the
Governor expresses the opinion' that the
present system is too onmbersome, ex?
pensive and unjust, and should bo radi?
cally changed. The Governor then de?
tails the changes desired, and gives a
resume of the State finances, which show
a reduction in. the State debt of $3,065,
926 since 1878. < ?? | ; - (
Tho Governor has vetoed the new city
charter bill of New Orleans, stating that
he did so at the request of a committee
v ' of the Merchants' Exchange, 'Cotton Ex?
change and Chamber of Commerce, who
were preparing city measures themselves.
He also vetoed an Act legalizing a large
amount of indebtedness said to be due
to the State charitable institutions; also
an Act authorizing the Parish of Pointee
Coupoo- to issue bonds, on the ground
that ouch on Act would encourage ex?
travagance, and increase the Parish debt;
also an: Act depriving the Democratic
City Sheriff of his fees, on the ground
that the. redactions made in the payment
for feeding prisoners were excessive and
would work publio injury. >
The House was called to order by
Speaker Hahn, who announced that since

There were 19 applicants for lodgings,
4 colored and 15 whites, daring the past
month. There were 9 alarms of fire, 2
of which were incendiaries, 2 from de?
fective dues; the balance were false
alarms, or from the burning of chimnien.
Thero was one death in the Station House
during the past month?from what cause
I was unable to barn, but from the state?
ment of City Physician, the cause was
from the effects of liquor and the poison
from a cancer in the moutb. I would j
state, that the coll occupied.by the pri?
