On the 7th instant, Mr. 'Cooley, of
Pointe Conpee, offered the following re
port, signed by himself and Judge Talia
ferro, majority of the committee to a horn
was relfri "d the above Ordinance :
To the C('nstiituinaln Conrention of 'th
State of Louisditan: The nndersitneld,
appointed a special committee by this
honorable body to consider and report
upon1 the ordiuance introduced by the
_ion. ,V. Jaspei Blackblurn, in relation
to the warrants issued by thile Conven
lion for the pay of members annd officers,
which said ordinance proposes to makeý
said warrants receivable in payment of
all taxes that are levied by this Conven
tion, the different State taxes, municijpal
and parochial taxes, and the purchase
of public lands; antd also the substitute
offeired to said ordinance by the I on.
WY. IT. Cooley, forcing the Sherifth and
tax collectors throughout the State to
pay into the State treasnry only such
f'ulnds as were actually receiveld hy them
in paymenIt of the tax levied by thei
Convention, and requiring the Andi*or
of Public Acconnts to exact evidence
I'rom each tax collector or sheriff to the
effect that the funds or warrants oflired
to be paid into the treasnr-y by themn
were in payment of tax referred to, beg
lea\ve to report as follows:
TI,ey are of the opinion that this Con
vention has not the power to make the
warrants it issues for the pay of mem
hers and offleers receivable in piatyment
of any other tax thlan thatlevied for the
puri'po.e of delfraying the expenses of
Practically, this Coinvention cannot
carry out the ordinance it passed on the
24th of )December, levying the mill tax,
which they undoubtedly had the power
to pass under the reconstrnltion laws.
The Courts of the State would eQjoin
that ordinanee,but the con m itte (though
they ure not certaiun hle will de1 so) hopel
and believe that the Commanding Genu
eral will enforce the oe iginal ordiniance
in question, and remove jiudgs deciding
against it as imlpediments to reconstruc
The committee think the Commandl
ing General will enforce the ordinance if
not hanmpered by the clearly illegal pro
visions of the ordinance proposed by
Mr. Blackburn. They therefore report
unfavorably upon that measure and in
favor of the proposition of Mr. Cooley.
Blackburn, of Claiborne, presented a
minority report, as follows:
Having been appointed one of a
Comamittee of Three to report this morn
ing on the matter of the ordinance which
I had the honor to introduce yesterday,
