BrAn of LocIKAnnA, Executive Department. New Orleans, January 1, 1872. Gentlemen of the Senate and House of Re prescntativoe of the State of Louisiana : I, therefore, recommend the immediate passage of a bill authorizing the levy and collection of a tax for the support of the free public schools of New Orleans. The report of the State Superintendent of Education, which shall in due time be presented to the Geueral Assembly, will be found of great interest, and will give in detail the facts which justify the statements and recommendations herein given. The reports of the State Auditor for this and the previous years, together with the reports of the State school authorities, show that large amounts of money have been lost by the loose and inefficient man agement of the school lands granted by Congress for educational purposes, and known as the sixteenth sections. From these reports it is apparent that new legis lation on this subject is imperiously de manded, if these valuable resources are to be eaved to the State. The matter naturally belongs to the State school authorities, and an enactment authorizing them to take the stops requisite for ascertaining the present condition of those Lands, and for enforcing the elaims of theschool fund against the purchasers of each seetions as a have been sold, is the most feasible mode of protecting the interest of the State in that valuable grant. i oIsLATiv5 WLU'rNSEs. I respectfully call your attention to the fact that the extravagance of the Legislature at its last session has pro duced a most noticeable sensation throughout the State, and has given the opponents of the government the means of sowing distrust and producing the greatest dissatisfaction among the people. The last session is knowu to have cost the State, for the Senate, - $191,763 85, and for the House of Re presentativoen, $767,192 65-an average cost of five thousand three hundred dollars for each Senator and seven thousand three hundred dollars for each member of the House, or an av erage of over six thousand eight hun dred dollars for each member of the entire body, or of one hundred and thirteen dollars and fifty cents per day for each member during the session. It is necessary that I should comment upon this sal'ject with a view of bring ing the evils to yourattention, in order that you en-ty guard against them in the future. A careful calculatipn of the expenses of the General Assembly for mileage and per diem, even at the enormous rate of twenty cents per mile, each way, shows that the total expenses ought not to exceed $100,000 for the sixty days of the annual session, and the legitimate contingent expen ses of both houses ought not to exceed $25,000. Then what has become of the excess 8433,956 50? It has been squandered by the officers of the As sembly iv paying extra mileage and per diem of members for days' service never rendered; foran enormous corp of use-le-s clerks, pages, etc., for pub lhshing the journals of each house in :ifteen obscure newspapers, some of which have never existed, while some of those that did exist never did the work they we ezuployed to do, il though eve*"y 'n'et has received the compensation for it; in paying com mnittees authorized by the House to sit during vacation and to travel through- , out the State and into Texas, tend in a hicucared other difterent ways. The enrollment corumittee of the Hou~se hand over eighty clerks, most of whom were under pay during the whole session at eight dollars per day, during which time only one hundred and twenty bills were passed which did utet require more than eight or ten clerks te) perform the whole labor of enretl~lmieit. Permit me to suggest that neither house has any right to spend the puhlic money :er purposes for which the law has already provideed. The publication of the journals *om the General Assemnily being provided eter by the printing law, it, was not com Ipetent for either house separately to di r-ct and pay for such enervices. It is not 1 legitimastely a part of the contingent ex- a pesses of either lhoese. I well also venture to lay down a pro- 11 :osution which I believe tie he sound poli cyas well as good law. The constitution i liaits the session of the G-eneral Assembly (cC sixty days. Botbh imuses must adjourn a*the expiration of this time. Ciin it ino the face of the constitution continue itso *xistenee for a longer period, even by the 1 jeint action of both houses ? Then if ito enui not for a longer period, how much less can either house, ctuing separately, I continue the existence of s part of its ii hody during vacation ? I am clear im my sa convictions that neither house can authorize h one of its eommittees to sitduing vacation ei witheat the conenet of the other house, el with the approval of the Governor, orj ci I without having passed a joint resolution to that effect over his objection by the constitutional majority. Hence it is that the action of the House in continuing five or six committees in session after the ad journment was not legal, even if the re solutions said by the Speaker to have been, had been legally passed. I will not discuss the question of whether they did a pase the House, for I do not believe the d House was competent to give any such e authorization. A committee can only be authorized to sit during vacation by an it act of the Legislature, properly approved e in accordance with the constitution. u I state these bcts to suggest the remedy. n I recommend the passage of an act fixing a the compensation of members, the rate of mileage and amount each member shall r be paid; the number and character of the ih officers, clerks and employee of each house, , and their compensation; defining what e shall be considered contingent expenses, , and limiting the amount for each house; y the abolishment of the office of warrant I clerk, and providing that the members i shall be paid in warrants drawn by the Auditor, as is customary in all other . claims against the State; that vouchers, o accompanied with the bill of articles, on y showing the character of the services ren dered, by what authority they were pur chased or employed, shall be filed with the Auditor as his vouchers, and it shall I be his duty to scrutinise and examine the I bills to see. that1.they are in accordance s with the law. It is believed, after a cars 5 ful calculation, that one hundred and t twenty-five thousand dollars is amply suf ficient to pay all the expenses of a sixty days' session of the General Assembly. The bitterness which existed at the in - auguration of the present administration t has, I am happy to say, entirely disap t peared. and perfect tranquility now reigns throughout the State. No one is molested on accoant of his political opinions. A few personal diffculties occur now and then, perhaps, but they are incidental to any society, and are not attributable to political differences. Our criminal laws, except in the city of I New Orleans, are enforced with commend able promptitude. The disposition of 1 jurors, with few exceptions, to convict 1 individuals charged with offenses against 1 the law, was never more manifest than now. Punishment for crime idminis tired to offenders with certainty and se verity. In the parish of St. Landry, where in t 186i3 a large number of colored persons I were killed for differing on political ques tions, but a few weeks ago two young men, both white, were convicted and sentenced to the penetentiary for life for attempting t violence to a colored woman, notwithstand ing she did not enjoy the best reputation. Att e same session of the court, out of fourteen crtminal cases tried, but one I prisoner was acquitted. In the parish of Dedoto, white prison- t ers have been most severely punished for r violence, and injury to colored people. So it is throughoutthe State. Justice is meted out with an even hand to all alike, giving the strongest evidence of the healthy tone of society, and the purpose of the people t to secure equal protection to all, and to insure the honest enforcement of the law. r With this happy condition of affairs, t we must look to the reformation of the many evils and abuses that have crept into our administration. The subject is one that cilia for your most careful considera ion and promptitude of action : 1. 1 recommed to you the modification c of the registration law, in reap et to the appointment of registrar. and their com plensation. The law should require them [ to be residents of the parishes for which they arr appointed. They 'should be ineligible to ar.y other office while they are in the discharge of their duties as re giatrar, and their compensattion should be rd lueed and paid, together with that ot coniiniasioners of election, by the parishes in which they serve ; and on the subject of registrattion ant election I repeat my recommendation of the last session. r* he disrgrd of the rights of franchise t evinced in many localities in the 8tate in a 18658 induced the Legislature of 1870 to resort to the medt stringent measures for the people. The violent rancor of that is period having now given place to a more liberal and just acknowledgement of the true relations of all our citizens, I com mend to your consideratton the modifica- 14 lion of the registration and election laws to an extent that, while securing the o inalienable rights of all, will make the n usage under them lees irksome and exact ng to the few." 2. The election law should be so modi fled that the expenses of holding elections shall be borne by the parishes, and that in the city of New Orleans the city itself shall besr the burden. 3. I recommend that the State Registrar ei ofrvoters, who ispractically the~uperviaor a' of Registration for the city of New Orleans, sj he paid by the city the salary allowed that di officer. t 4. 1 recommend that all fees allowed the 4 Auditor of Public Acouonts, amoacnting, it Is believed, to about twenty-five thou- g sand doilsua per annum, he collected by el him and paid into the State treasury to the ,4 credit of the "ingerest tax had," to be at esaployeda smpepag the ktsers and pita- . clpsiofcour debt n 5. That the act giving the State Ires i urer two thousand dollar per annum se I receiver of money. on public lasde be e repealed. To receive thse moneys is - legitimately a part of his duty as Stab Treasurer. a 8. That the clerk of the Pirst District t Court for the parish of Orleans be paid a I salary of six thousand dollars per annum a by the city of New Orleans, and that he be i allowed no fees from the State or city a other than the salary for his services. The i fees of this office amounts to an enormous I sum per annum. 7. 1 recommend a careful revision of the laws relative to easts of clerks, shseri, justices of the peace and constables. The f fees under the present laws "a so oe l mously high that in many insanees they work a denial of justice. It should be made the duty of the judge of the court to t examine and approve all fee bills before they are paid, and to declare the office of any sheriff or clerk vacant on detecting t overcharges of costs. 8. I call your attention to my remarks on the subject of bribery in my last annual message. It is as follows: "I ask your attention to the bet that there now exists on our statute book. no adequate penalties against the crime of bribery. This defect should be remedied by appropriate legislation, which I sin cerely hope the wisdom and patriotism of your honorable body will promptly devise. I am in receipt of insfrmation of acts of bribery on the part ef public officials, but owing to the defect above named in the law, I am without the means of bringing the offenders to justice, or stopping the mischief. It has become a crying evil, and, if suffered to go on, will destroy the confidence of the people in government, and seriously endanger our liberties and highest interests. I hope that the General Assembly will enact some law on the sub ject, providing adequate penalties, and placing it in the power of the Governor to prosecute with vigor and promptitude all persons offering bribes, and officials re ceiving them." 9. I recommend a reduction in the com pensation given for assessment and col lection of the taxes of the State; that the two thousand dollar. paid country tax col lectors for listing the property be reduced to three hundred dollars each; that there be a board of four State assessors for the city of New Orleans, at a salary of five thousand dollars each, who shall make the assessment on the property of the city for the State; that the board shall also fur nish a copy of the rolls to the city, which shall, with such modication as the city way make, be its rolls on which its taxes shall be collected, and that the Adminis tr.ator of Amessments of the city of New Orleans be constituted ex officio president of the board. 10. I also recommend a modification of the printing law, by which the expense of I printing the laws and journals in the country newspapers will be saved and that the price paid for printing be mate- I rially reduced. By such an act one hun- I dred and fifty thousand dollars can be I saved annually. 11. That the Metropolitan Police law be repealed, and an act paused organising I the police der a system similar to that e in force on adoption of the present, e reducing their expenses to four hundred i thousand dollirs per annum, remitting the financial department to the city of New 1 Orleans, and limiting the Metropolitan i district to the citice of New Orleans and E Carrullton. C 12. The passage of an act giving to the t city of New Orleans entire control of feed- t tug prisoners confined within the parish , prison of Orleans. The expense is now a enormous, and can be greatly reduced if t the city government is empowered with a the controL s 13. The act passed at the last session t relative to a statehouse should be re- i pealed, and the purchase of land on which f to build a capitol should be annulet t 14. The institution for the education of the blind should, for the present, be dis- g continued. The State has no building for the accommodation of the pupils, and too few pupils to justify the expense of t the institution. It ls now simply an asylum, and if the inmates whese fami lies or relations are able to maintain them c wcre disnmiased, there would be but very few dependent upon the charity of the State. The unfortunate people remain ing should be provided for elsewhere. 15. Chief constables should not be al lowed other compensation than the fees they receive for the service of summons of the execution of writs, etc., except when called into active service by the Governor. 16. Thateach parish judge be paid by c the parish in which he resides and acts, that in this way the State treasury may be relieved of the expense. 17. I recommend that the act providing an annual salary to the aecretaries, assis taint secretaries, clerks, sergeants-at-arms, etc., of the General Assembly be repealed, and that these offiers and employees shall receive only such daily compensationa during the sesaion as heretofore paid. In P this manner you can save caght thousand dollars per annum. a: 18. I here reiterate my recommendation a thet an act he pesmed providing that all SI charter. of raihond companies granted by a ,he tibte be regieslad. By so dating we 0 ahell release ourselves from the nominally Ii condmgsmt debt of over twelve millieus of S1 aO a AL zaw aNSW asDw 0aaus. " The assure eagoymesm of lis, liberty, * reputation and property, and the pears s and good order of society, depend upon a the just, prompt and eMoient administra tion of the criminal law for the prevention Sanda punishment of crime. and conaes. There is a universal complaint of the fail Sreof justice in this department of the Slaw in the city of New Orleans. I would respectfully call the attention of the Leg. s Islature to this sabject, in order that it r may provide the remedy necessary to cow rsothe eviL f The population of New Orleans, in its prspent extensive boundaries, including a v r large foating population for the dif thret states of the Union sarib!eatossigp / countries, is probably not lees than three hundred thoussad persons. It is obvious that one criminal court is insufficient for the prompt t and dis r posal of all the crimes and offenses com ! mitted in such a community. Previous to the war, the then Attorney General I suggested to the Legislature and exp l dieney of creating two courts for the trial and disposal of crimes offenses; one to b hay jurisdiction in all cases of misde º meanor, and another in all cases of felony, r or crimes punishable by death or imprison I ment in the Penitentiary at hard labor. The suggestion was unhappily not then r acted upon. That which was then expe dient is now absolutely necessary for the safety and well-being of society. The city of New Orleans, notwithstanding adverse circumstances, has advanced considerably in general prosperity and in the number of inhabitants. With the increase of popu lation crimes have multiplied. There are now six Recorders in the city. Supposing each Recorder to send upon an average one case every day to the Criminal Court (a reasonable supposition if they discharge their duty), the number of cases to be disposed of every month would be, exclusive of Sundays 144. It is manifest that such a number of cases, and some of them cases of the gravest character, .asnot be properly tried or disposed of by one court. I would therefor recommend the 1 creation of an additional Criminal Court as above suggested; the adoption of this recommendation will not entail increase of expense, as the number of civil courts in the city of New Orleans is more than sufficient for the business of the commu nity, and the abolishment of one of those courtfr which I recommend, will save the 1 cost incurred by the establishment of an additional criminal court. OENERAL Torras. The legitimate results of the reconstruc tion policy of Congress in this State may t now be regarded as so far completed as t to justify a final verdict upon it. Through this policy the government of the State was placed in the hands of its whole peo- c ple. The effect of this was a good one. It c was to enable every man to have an equal " voice of his own government, to the end that all classes and races of people should a have a chance to defend and maintain a their civil and polical rights. The excitements and disagreements in- a cident to this revolution in public affairs r have naturally hitherto monopolised the e attention of the Legislature and of State and municipal governments, to the ne- t glect, perhaps, of other public affairs. c This period of excitement, however, has t passed. The questions that arose during a it are now settled ; an era of peace and a good feeling has begun, at least in a our State. All the people acquiesce in 8 the changes wrought by the reconstruc- tJ tion measure. The civil authority of the ti State has ample power to enforce the law s and preserve order within its limits. The v temper and disposition of the people of td all classes and political opinion are to e sustain the authorities in the discharge of fi their duties. There is no need in Louis- o iuan of any extraneous power or military g for to assist the State authorities in main taining order and enforcing law. C I have had no diffculty in securing the a full support of the people of this State in lj the euf arcement of all laws. I have no a hesitation in saying that they are as loyal ii to the Union and as law-abiding as the g people of any Stte, North or South. a The great depression in our industries, E consequent upon the prostration follow- a ing the war, still unfavorably affects the different interest of the Stats. The twro great needs of our State are immigration and active capital. Louisiana is still an unoccupied territory for railrods. Soon I her unequalled openings for railroad en terprise must attract that kind of enter prise, and with advancing railroads will come imigration and capital. When these 0 come, her still undeveloped resources, both mineral and agricultural, will as- I tonish even her own people. In the meanwhile, I earnestly hope the General Assembly will co-operate with me in securing all the retrenchment pos sible in the expenditure of the State, that the burdens of taxatien may be lightened and our people aseisted to ride over the present momentary depression. I reassert now the opinion which I have expressed in three sacceesive annual me. sages, that the general governmentowesato j the people of the South generally, and is especially to the people of Loulsim and '9 at thelewer Mimisippi,nantiseaalassmas la the sebsinllngaofthe lsees,sad awls la the conimetraium at rdrailee, A seai prepertion at he ai wheh has tm s hibeafly granted to the Northern States a the last ten yess, gasted new in a e jadicioes meaner to ear motion would increase the productieo of our grest staples º many per cent, and do more to cement a the kindly feelings now resuming their anclent sway in the beasts of our people - than any enforcement bilk It is also desimble that all diabilities and legal penalties lanlhted on account of the late war ahould be done away with. t The number of pewsees who remain under congressional or montitntional dis abilities is extremely maml, yet as a stead toward complete recomeiliation an act of tull and Anal amnesty to all eoncerned in the war would have an important and nhautqry laluency. The noble example of the State of Ieloisana, which was the ArM State to expunge freo its statutes all dis crimination on account of diferences in the past civil war, may be wisely and safely bllowed by the general government. The Prsmident of the United States has already followed it I hope that you will instruct our Senators and Representatives in Congress to imitate him in this respect. As the chief executive of the State, it is my duty to eall your attention to a grave, illegal and dangerous abuse by certain federal officers of the official power, by using it to interfere in and attemptto con trol a political assemblage of the citizens of this State, convened to deliberate upon Stats afairs. In other States, a very mod erate and limited exercise of federal influ enee, extending only so hr as the use of the federal patronage fbr the purpose of electing or influenoeing delegates to politi cal conventions, has been met with severe and merited rebuke from the people, and has been thought serious enough to de mand congressional investigation. In this State, federal interference in State matters has gone far beyond what it did in these &tate. to which Congressional attention has been directed. It has embraced not only bribery, the use of patronage, and the active, undisguised interference of federal employes as such in political meet ings, but in addition to these reprehensi ble acts, the federql appointees in this state, or many of them, have resorted to menaces, threats, theprostitution of United States building to factious party purposes to the exclusion of the business public and beyond this, even, what is unprece dented in the history of this country, the employment and presence of large num bers of armed deputy United States mar shals, and of armed United states troops I to interfere with, menace and control a political assemblage of citizens of the State. I recite briefy the facts that are k undenied as to this monstrous outrage on the peace and dignity of the State. In ae time of profound peace, without any com- l petent authority, of the least necessity and 9 without consultation with, or the consent of the State authorities, the United States officials here, in violationof law, convoked a political convention in the Customhouse in New Orleans, and this against the wish es and in the face of the solemn protest of a large majority of the convention. The doors of the Customhouse were locked and barred fora day, and the whole busi- 3 neqpublie who had interest there were excluded. United States deputy marshals, selected in many instances from rough and lawless characters, were especially deputised for the occasion, armed with loaded revolvers and stationed within the building and around the United States courtroom de sighated for the convention. The United States Marshal previously declared that they should be stationed within the conven tion itself. Their instructions had been such that these deputies were insolent and violent in language and manner toward the delegates even to such an extent as to excite serious disturbance, and going so F far on the part of some of them as the offering of personal violence to the dele gates. United States troope were drawn in the Customhouse. Their very presence was an alarming attack upon the right of pub lic assemblage, and upon every tradition and principal of American liberty. They interrupted the deliberations of the dole- *' gates. This interference of federal offcers, armed with federal authority and federal guns and pistols, in the a~irs of a peace able political meeting of the people of a State, isa very serious encroachment upon the peace and dignity of the State, and upon the individual liberties of its citisens. I can not suffer it to paem by without enter ing against it my solemn protest, and in viting you most seriously to join with me asking the national government to inves tigate the outrages of ite subordinate off cers and to punish the guilty parties. A ful statement of the matter has been laid before the President, and I can not be- 0 lieve that after a careful investigstlon he Sdisavow these lawless acts of a his appointees, and dismiss the guilty a ones from offce. t The umanemous condemnation of these ti abuses by the press and the people of al] parties throughout the country, and thi general indignation which they have ex cited show that the people everywhere are alarmed at their occurreane The Acer. * cana people have heretofore been extreemeiy jealous of even the appearanace of military intrfeeas ordictation is ciil a&r Gecn o oo pomplyr emphaticmlly a BATES OF ADVERTISING. a Squaresi 1 mo j amo 3 amm 0 Igoe 1 ye a One $4 87 89 $12S l tTwo 7 9 12 20 35 OrThane 9 12 20 35 50 Four 15 25 35 50 2 e Tiree 35 4 60 85 Six 24 42 50 70 109 a I Columa. 46 80 110 175 20s T'rmiagt advsrtissmensm S, 81 0 per a square nmt laseratesa each subsequent inasetia, 75 cents.
