t- New Orleans, January 11, 1871.
Gentlemen of the Senate and House of llpre
aentatives of the State of Louniana :
I congratulate you upon the favorable
auspices under.. which you assemble.
S, Our State has been blessed by the pro
Low vidence of God with plentiful crop. The
staples of sugar and ootton, which are'
Sthe springs of our wealth, have been pro
or duced in larger abundance than in any
year since the war. This increased pro-.'
duction has disproved the gloomy fore
bodings of those false prophets who pre- r
dicted the ruin of our agricultural in- t
tei'sts, as a consequence of, the change a
made by the war from slave to free labor; ft
n another proof that what is just to all is n
Iof best for all. I

HARMONy.
it A growing spirit of harmony and good I
'n will, between the different classes of our
people, has been strikingly evinced during a
of the last year. It has been seen, in a
ie. strongly pronounced disposition on the s
Spa:rt of all good citizens in most parts of p
- the State, without respect to partisan ld
differences, to preserve order, enforce the bi
laiws, and render obedience to all legally th
11 constituted authority. The devices and ta
-1 machinations of evilly disposed dema- ha
a gues and restless and irresponsible par- of
- ties, who seek to profit by times of go
B alarm and violence, have been set aside ,
by the good people of this State, who are wl
most deeply interested in its peace and cos
prosperity. The result has been that fL
this disposition, aided by the salutary s
laws passed by the General Assembly, sa
and by Congres, have secured, during mis
te last fall, the most quiet, peaceable an
and orderly election the State has wit
nesmed for many years In former elections fr
even within two years, New OrIeas and ads
the State have been the scenes of violence, int
liota and bloodshed, which have diagrace 1the
their name,and greatly injured all their
interests. This fall, an important and
exciting election was held without any T
conflict or disturbance, and with scarcely fou
an arrest. Such a thing was never known sti
in New Orleans before. I feel especially vote
gratified to be able to lay this before you The
as a matter of record, because the last nint
General Assembly deeply impressed by artic
the alarming and increasing violence and of w.
lawlessness ,displayed in our elections, polit
and their lamentablo effect upon every and
interest of the State, had, with a view to was
remedy these evils, enacted stringent rate,
,penalties against such offenses, and for spii
their more certain enforcement had phra
clothed the executive with ample powers. and I
I have endeavored to use these powers, frage
with moderation and impartiality, but and
with firmness and with the single aim to again
retserve the peace and to secure to all th
wuen, irrespective of party, race or color, chissn
"he free exercise of all their rights asci- if c

That I have been able to do so without tion c

my The last General Assembly proposed lat
'ly four important amendments to our con- ant
'mm stitution, whicih were duly ratified by the her
lly votes of the people at the last ele ion. of
'ou The first amendment repeals the ninety- rec
sat ninth article of the constitution. This my

credit of the fitRepublican administrs- POd

and all parties were represented in the
militia. The result was that, during the
