C Jjfl- ■ iii : jj I. is* • Tv* i * 'At a meeting of the planter» and dele-, gute« of the overflowed parishes of Loui siana, hold at the St. Charles Hotel, in the city of "New Orleans, on the 4th day of Octobor, 1885, the following; resolution and memorial were adopted ; KfcSOLCTJON. I. JÎM>b)e<l, That a coramitwo be appointed by the S'residont of this Convention, to <A>u*iht of one member from «nob over flowed parish, to draw up a memorial -to be submitted to Gov. Wells and Major Gen. E. H. 8. Canby, on the subject of the rebuilding and reparation of the levees on the Mississippi river: HRMOHIAL. To HI« Kl»ll«i)( y, .1. M a BI8» h Wr .i u, (iororuor of th« gut« of liOuUiana, and Major (ionoral K. R. 8. CAWir, OoinmaDdirijj Ihn Départaient of Louisiana : From a glance at the map of the State of Louisiana, a general idea of tha extent of the overflow may bo formed. It embraced all lands lying between the Mississippi, Ouachita and Black Rivers, und all lauds 'y»ng «ont h of Red Kl vor and east of Bayou Bœuf and Bayou Tocho, to Berwick's Bay; also, all livnds between Bayou Lafourche and the Atc.bafalaya River. Hi« estima ted that eight million, two hundred and thirty thousand acre« of land were actually inundated, a large portion of which wa* in a high state of cultivation. No leu* t.ban nineteen parishes wtre partially, or almost totally overflowed. I In order to show the extant, of the dam age Incurred, we would refer to an esti mato made by authority of the Police Jury of the parish of Assumption. From that estimate, it would appear, that in that parish alone, 2110 persons were forced from their homes; 21 «1 hales of cotton woro probably lost by the overflow of 4822 acres of land, already planted in cotton; 180,000 bushels of corn, the probable pro duct of 5400 acres, and 1,575,000 pounds of sugar, the product, of ttlOO acre» of lsnd, were totally destroyed. The estimated vniuo of products de stroyed, is five hundred and tbirty-four thousand, eight hundred and sixteen dol lars. In this estimate, the loss in stock and damage to plantations is not included. Wo have estimated that the losses incurred in the parishes, added to this, amounts to tho sum of three million of dollars. Those land wore appraised at many mil lions of dollars before the war, and the products Of the parishes overflowed, ac-i cording to the Auditor's report for tho year 1861, amounted to thirty-four mil lions, five hundred and fifty-three thou sand, one hundred and forty aeveu dollars. The estimated cost of rebuilding and re pairing tho Missii-sippi levee« would not exceed six hundred and twenty-five thou sand dollars, as appears from the Report of Engineers appointed by authority of the United States and of the State of Lonisi ana, a copy of which is hereunto annexed. A few thousand dollars additional would probably be roquired to construct levuea on Mfe Atetiafaiaya and other laUyal streams. As a question of finance, the immediate reparation of the levees presents itself iu strong Ijght to the State and United States governments. It is more than probable that tho loss in taxes Will am omit to a sum more than adequate to def ray tho expense« necessary to secure tho low lands from a second overflow. It must bo borne in mind that the lands will not be cultivated the ooining Jew, unless somo reliable as surance of protection, from tho devastation of the river can he given. Under tho pres ent depressed state of the agricultural in terest of our State few persons arc in a con dition to bear tho loss of two crops in suc cession, aud as a consequence these losses of revenue must continue until the river is confined to its banks. ft must also bo remembered that the condition of the broken levees will grad ually grow worse, and the evil of which we complain increase. So that if the work of reparation is postponed for another sea son it will requiro not only a larger sum for repairs, but tho breaches in the levee being gradually widened, additional lands will be overflowed, and the agricultural interests of thecouutry be correspondingly depressed. The lauds will apeudily be covered with an almost tropical growth of trees, vines, etc., which will render them as difficult to bo put tn cultivation as they were in their original state; and, if long neglected, the whole country will have to be abandoned and loft desolate. It oöcurs to the Committee that the State of Louisiana has a right to call upon the Comoiandiug General of this Department, through its executive officer, for stich as sistance from the United States as can bo giv9it, as we have reason to l>elieve that the soldi«*» stationed at Morganza were ftiinfly iSfArnmëntal in causing the levee to give way at that point which, owing to the great bend in tho river, contributed very largely to the amount of water which inpiidated the lands of lower Louisiana, it has heretofore been noted that no number of crevasses in Um river, betweeu the mouth of Hod River and Uonald^'i viiio, ««used a general ovuî How of lao^m the lower part of tbr, State, ft this grund levee below M organza, and on the same bond, did not give way For years past, that section of levee ha» boon regarded by 'ho Legislature as of MMb vital importance to the safety of the country which it pro tected, that largo and frequent appropria tions have been made for rebuilding it when requisite, and for strengthening it when there was any doubt of its ability to r*»i»t the greet pîissnra of water; and tlm samo may be sai-Mf the large levees above tho mouth of Jied River. It is also be lieved that the damages done to tho levee* at Milliken's Bond, Lake Providence, Duckport aud White'? Plantation, by the opérations of tho Federal army, greatly contributed to the extont of the overflow. Before the war, tho lovons were kept up by riparian proprietors and by levee districts: by. the war, they have been deprived of the labor previously used for that purpose, .«rid in their presSBTTTTTfoverishea condi tion it i# impossible for them to keep up the levees. The finances of the State aro in such a condition that it cannot be ex pected to do tho work. Having no other source to look to, wo therefore appeal to the General Govern ment to devise the means. to protect effectually tho citizen« of Louisiana from the dangers of overflow: and if the Com landing General bas tho means within his power, a« tho oecossitioa are pressing, wo reapovtfully rcquo.it hitn to employ them to rencuo the country from the im peading daugor.
