ADDRESS OF GOVERNOR McENERY
To the People of Louisiana.
,Mtate of Louisiana, Executire Qfticc,
New Orleans, May 30, 1873. 1
As the duly elected but deposedGov
ernor of Louisiana, overthrown solely
by the intervention of the judicial, mil
itary and executive authorities of the
United States, I deem it my duty, in
view of the recent proclamation of the
President relative to Louisiana affairs,
to address you some words of advice
and counsel.
The Federal Executive, in the face of
the report of the Committee of the U.
S. Senate, declaring unanimously that
the U. S. District Judge usurped juris
diction, and that his court was without
authority to coerce a State or seize or
overthrow its government, has issued a
proclamation commanding the citizens
of the State to submit to the Kellogg
usurpation.
It is apparent to you as well as to all
citizens of this Union that the Presi
dent is resolved at all hazards and at
all costs to sustain by the military arm
of the nation, the present usurpation of
the State government, ushered into ex
istence by the midnight order of U. S.
District Judge Durell, executed by
United States bayonets, and presidedl
over by Mr. William Pitt Kellogg.
You are ordered and required by the
President to view with calmness and
resignation the overthrow of the legal
government of your State, elected by
you in pursuance to all the forms of
law; the displacement of judges, clerks,
sheriffs, recorders, justices of the peace,
police jurors, etc.,-in fact, the displace
ment by force of the whole machinery
of governmr.ent-State, parochial and
municipal-and the installation by
force of persons notoriously defeated at
the election, andt whose only title to
oflice rests upon the return of a return
ing board withouta single official return
or vote before it to canlvass or count,
and predicating its illegal action upon
affidavits (in many instances forged),
certificates, statements, census returns,
etc.
You are commlanded by the President
to oppose no armed resistaunce to this
admitted usurpation, which, without
the potential aid of Federal authority,
would cease to exist in thirty days, and
I counsel and advise you to obey this
peremptory order of the President.
Grant, as the Chief Magistrate of the
nation, has assumed the high and grave
responsibility of foisting upon the peo
ple of this State a usurpation without
precedent in this or any other free
country, and he is answerable before
the bar of public opinion of this IRe
public for this high-handed measure, so
utterly destructive of free government
in this country.
The President of the United States,
with the array and navy at his com
masnd, has the physical power to coerce
the people of this State into any line of
policy he may be pleased to dictate,
and it would be but folly and madness
to interpose any resistaince likely to
bring us inl conflict with tile national
authority; and as it has already been
successfully demonstrated that IMr.
Kellogg's government, unaided by Fed
eral peower, was powerless to enforce its
mandates, further violent demlonstra
tions will prove barren of useful or
practical results.
While the President's lroclamnation
will speedily repress any threatened
outbreak in any part of the State, yet
the deeply fixed sectiments of irrepres
sible hostility in the minds and hearts
of an outraged people, against the vilest
usurpation ever attempted to be fasten
ed upon freemen, will find their full
scope and vent, and I advise that these
manly and patriotic sentiments take
form and shape through all moral and
legal agencies possible to be devised.
To abandon at this crisis of ourallairs
the peaceable and legal means within
our powers by which we may contest
until the last hope is gone the uireten
sions of this usurpation to t the title olf'
being the legal govcrnill(let of Louisi
ann, would be an abaseiienllt of our
manllhood, and thrusting our lneck. in
the yoke of tyranny and oplpression
already prepared to receive them.
With the Executiive of tihe I nitled
States to Sullpport hirn, Mr. Kellogg
Say, until Congress (meets, administer
his governiment with isolilme :lapparentl
degree of succe.ss, lbut this slihu Ii( not
eaulhse us to dlesioir of ultiitate relief.
The publil sentiituent throughout the
Unimon, and the sentiuninis an(l opinions
of meIlmbllers of ('Iongress leadl mnc to the
well considered conclusion that when(,
Congress asserlnlls in I)econrlher o ur
difficulties will he speedily adju-'ttl.
and that if we fail in securing a recog
nition of the governlneltt electedl by t hie
people (and an earnest iffort will I,
made in that direction), at least ('on
gross will surely idilinte ano,1 p's theli

olt tihn State, and that atll or inlidus

happi ly, wi- have 1n 011 uni tII1ole--at rily
and ruthhls-ly pluingmsl, ano sjtecially
do I urge ploll the lpeoll<l iif the two
races wvho ri e nlire mericait(ly nil:mrly (qtllal
in this State, to iultivtli the li nie to1
wards the other but feeling of amnity,
good feeling and a mutual undorstandl
ing. The fears and prejudices that
have been instilled into the minds and
hearts of the colored man against his A
white neighbor, should give place to
reason and judgment if the people of
the white race are frank and open in
their avowal to concede to the colored
man all the rights guaranteed to him Ii
under the law. On the other hand the ib
colored man should accept with sincer- C
ity the plighted faith of his white
neighbor, and thus by an interchange 0
of candid opinions prejudices enter- ii
tained by both races may be obliterated, c.
a new and brighter career opened up
for both peoples, and the antagonism
now existing will give place to mutual
forbearances, and the destiny of the
two races, so indissolubly united with t:
the fate of Louisiana, will be placed in t(
a higher scile of advancement than at U
present appears to be the outlook for
poor, oppressed, unhapply L1ouisiana.
While I ant not perliiitted to fulilll
the functions of the high position to ,
which the voice of lily countrymen t,
elevated me by a large inalirity, yet 1 l
will remain at the capital (:t the State,.,
promising a renewed teg.ll y and z.eal i
in behalf of the people of the State in a
their endeavors to olbtain froml thle
Congress of the United Stattes that even d

THE STATIE OF FIANCE.'
The Ziolnarchiists of the iFrench As- c
sembly have succeeded in driving s
Thliers to resign, and Marshal Mci1lahon It
has llbeen elected President ;and has a
accepted the otlliot. The litelpubliceas Ii
submnit to thchllange witihoutdiisortlerly :
llanifestations. All lithe ri'eclnt elections |
in France have proven thithat thell M - it
arehial mnajorilty in ii .\sseboldy .ire in 0
a popular minority. IIt is th theory of 11
the lelpublicanlis thait the Assembly g
wthihll was elected to niuke place withi. v :
(icrmliny lhas outlived its usefulness p
antd exchededl the legitimatte authority .
belonging to it. Tie Montuarlchists seitn tli
determitined not to give up their adlva:n- a:
tage in the Assembly before in thli in.
terest of ttciionservatismll"' they sett ulp a
throne. The objetitionl to Theirs was it
that lie tlid l not asscnt to this iloctrinie, it
but was faiithftul to tihe Ileople, aut iI
friendly to Itepublicanl institutions. i
The future peace of Fr:antee will die
pend upon the motlderation of the Mono- g
archial party. 'l'The lRepllublicais will It
not submit to any netion of the Asset-- Ii
bly setting up a Kl ing. They will fight
rather than allow the minority, miow in u
lossesion of the Assiembly, to tlictatte
to the iimasses of the people. Any at- d
tempt to restrict sauti'rag will certainly I:
he resisted. If there is civil war, the o
Monarchists will be the aggrcssors. It ci
does not sceol unlikely that allh'irs will re
drift in their present shape until ati gen- o
cral election is h]ehl, wheic it is colli- 51
dently expected the sovereign piower of tc
the Nation will be (ltlelitely phlated in

time in this State. Unrestricted license
to burn aInd plunder was the order
of the day. Tle chivalry have been
stripped of mlost of their valuables.
Gold watches, bracelets, silver cups,
pitchers, spoo011s, forks, &c., are as eotm
mello in camp as blackberries. The
terlms of plunliider are as follows : the
valuables procured are estimated by
comlpanlies; each company is required
to e'xhibit the rtsults of its operations
at any given lnce; onoe-fifth and firhst
choiee aulils to the share of the conll~anl
der-il-chief and stalff, one-flfth to the
