It is cir c.,c , i ;s . i,' - tion that by then alo, c' inl thei" rl and State Government I .rsat.lyv ;t.wli..l. istered. Its p,!icy i .',l, - i.l has supported the it:r.ts t f :! . tions, elevated the na:tincr tleharaer, and enlarged the bou:dari ...i' l!.c t 1.i" on. In State aflkirs it La-: r' ., 'aI Il,,' rights of- all perseouand of ill c'a .-! _, and with unshrinking fidielaty pr.!: . :l them from aggression and ~l,~,ipti ,ri. These are the trut' o;ject..i ,.f a!! ji:,i government, and to th e. it.;policy v.ill be directed. I can Lt*at silva:unc, lt: public good by steadfastly adhering" t, the principles by which thcse re ult.' have been produc' d. The Constitution makes it the duty of the Governor to take care that the tlaw be faithfully executed, and the power of appointment has be:a eonf!iecd to hint to a limited extent to a Jsist ,iit in tle per. formance of this duty. 1lis ea1ponsibil ity for the conduct of public offieers must be measured Lby li. power o\,r their appointment. l t, c;tl.aot be hel1 accountable for what many Le donue or ommitted by those to whom he has giv en no truatand whom he cannot remove. But he shouv4be heldtoa strict ace,,unt for the char*r of those whom he naea select for public employment. I shall invite a rigid scrutiny into the mnannae-t in which this, as indeed all other officir. duties arq p~dorn a . 1 will not,now ingly, appoint to office spy nna who is not uid to discharge every ditty be lobg to it, with knowledge, skill and Integrity and compentency must be essential requisites to the appoint. meat of public officers. These heing fully shown, reasonable weight may tbe permitted lb political considerations; mere partizanship constitute no claim upon the appointing power. The sup port of a party for reward is a degra dation-not a mencrit--for the pl inciplhs of a party can only be considerd vail nable when they contribute !o the gen eral good. As Governor of Lauisiaana, it will be my first duty to see that the public service under my control is cou dacted with honesty and capacity. Economy in.the administration if a Government ought always to be insi.t ed upon, and retrenchment, in all cases, when it can wisely be made. U 'lzfortn nately a disposition to retrench the Treasuryexpenditures is usually diree" ed to branches of setrvice iiin whicr it i least demanded. There is realvly njust cause of complaint agaimnt the salarie-. of the officers of time State, yet th-se Iare usually attacked wheln there is a de i;re tocurtail the public expel'nse, and tlhey are attaced because all are familiarwith them, sad a few know where to look for the leaks that empty the Treasurv. IBut prodigality rarely exhibits itsell'on the surface of Government'expenses. It is in the details of administration that ex travagance is to be detetcted, and whlen evir the subjec is properly investiga ted, it may be fouad that large ssnt of money are wasted which couald be saved to the Treasury by the obsearvance of a correct system and the exaction of a stern accountability. I shall take puins to call the attention of the General A, sembly to such reforms iy all the depart mnents of Government as the people may demand. The subject belongs, particu larly, to the legislative banch of the Goverament,sad my hearty coperation will be given toevery measure that will tend to lessen the public burthens. But iothing of any value can be accomplish ,d without a careful acrutiny and a rigid nquinry, condmsted with a steady deter minatiou to expose extrsiagance when ever and wherever discoveed, and then with an nlinching hand to apply the appropriate remedy. But while urging frugality in the adl mnis1tration of the Government, let it ot- be sipposaed that I am unwilling to aid in sucth judicious expenditurea as will develop thesesources of the State. Louisiana has blSs something of a lag gard in the career of inteornal improve ment. It is within a brief period that railroads have been commenced under the auspices of the State; and even to this day, not a dollar has been spent for . geological esurvey of the State, an oh .;-ct. oprimry imaportance to every pa ;sh within her borders. Under the :arded proviiosa of our CotautioM, it is almost impeossible for the State to fall into say very serious error in aid ing in the construction of useful works. The danger lies less in extending con stitutional atsistance to corporations for building railroads, than in the careless executionof the laws by which the State ei'eometls a corporatotr.

TIm aibr.,ot end to which the tc nlpiracy was iriucght. and the sharp, tq4k and juit, lunlislhn.ent of the conspirators, proved thait the South had not over-estamnated the stability of her institutions. But tie apologies and eulogisums which de' veloped at the North a wide-spread syna pathy with the feloas, have deepened tel distrust in the permanency of our Fed eral Government, and awakened se"nti' ments favorable to a separation of the States. The representatives of these feelings I lainst is, and our domestic instituttations a.',e tow .truggling to obtain possession of thte &Go'ernmllaet. si that Federal law nmay illustrate their doctrines, and Fed Sral power enforcethiep. I cannot con template withot-t the most serious alarm t!h condition to which the( Southern Stc!tes will be reduced, if a li-)iitical party, organized ol"ly in one' section of the 'country, and without f l'lt,'er-a, or vupl)athlizer.- in the other, should obtain ?',)sse.ssi" o(,f ('lie Iovcrnlent, when the oitly fnt'tid(lati(n "I' which that party r(: it, t; dlet("'tation of slavery, and ti.h the miinlority ilae s"ection will be wilhult e the tion er to Frotect itelfi tchroungI' the iustrumentality of Fedtral ttauthority. Whent that time arrives tie ',ttlh.rn States will e prae'ctically with out rt'pres(,tatiou in *the Federal (Go~v ilt'entt, and the South occupy the po sitito of subjugated States. Tihe Union cannot last without a re cogrnition of the vital principles of thb Constitution, tthat the tates are equald in tie Confeederacy. Every State nmust be pertuittd to determine her own s cial insgtituation, and left to the enjioy meat of tema in peace; ad the Territo ries, the (elnlon property of tihe States, must te freeils opened to sacttlement by the pŽeope, of tie eonfi'derated equals. lThe insutilng deland that there shall bel imo more slave States., must be abandon e'd, because it not oenl5 tmends to nmake us politically inferior, Lut because it brands as a disgrace nt iimntitutiotn which we prize as at lylessing. S a like iofnse eis tl'ered and wronlg inflicted tilt thee South Lby the her(.sy of popular sovereignty, by which siaveholdere are te be exelu ded from the Territories, by thie lfrienti ly legislation ,f the Territorial GoverI ments. The rSupreme om t of tie nti ted States has settled the princilj10 thrmt nmust. rule : neither Congress aio' thie Tferritorial Governments cuin emontitu ti-ma!iy exclude slavery friom the Terri tories. A southern man can therefore rightfully take his slaves into the Te r ritories. As the Territorial Govern ments iare without the legial power to exclude slavery, it i diflcult to under stand how they can be allowed to do i directly that which they are prohibited from doing directly. It is'the duty of Congress to-protect the property *hich is taken to the Territories under the sanction of the Constitution, sad to guard that property frost the neglect or unfriendliness of the Territorial Gov einment, which is but ibe creature of Cuaqrm. The Southern StIts desy nothing to theNorthern 'which Ums claim for themselves. They insist only on equality, and it remains only to be decided in the struggle now pending whether this equality will be conceded to then--and 1 am not one who does not despair that it will. There is a patriotic minority in the n,,n-.)Ia.ivhtllding States who are faith fully upholding tit,. rights ,,f the South and battling for the mainteciance of thie onstitution. The ntItl.

In the discharIge of this trust, I shall endeavor never to lose sight of the prin. iplelc that the rules which govern thl 1Senate have beenl established as well to protect the miuiority from the arbitrary or unjust exercise of lower b~f lhe ma jority, as to prevent surprise or hasty legislation. I cannot flatter' mis,.lf that I caln es cape the counmission of errors, hi,\ etve sincere my desire or earnest ,ly exer t ion to avoid them; this con\viction in. pels me therefore at the tlhreshhld of my induction into offtice to lwpeak youi considerate iundulgence during ,icy oill official career. Should it become t my duty to decide by ay casting vote ,qucsti ins purely of a legslaltive nature, I shall, iin its exer cise ai, guided by the convictions of my 'eliberate judlgntent for the advance met of the interests of the State. But shouhIt I be called ulon to exercise that right in matte: a iivcclving te dignity, the honor ,tr s,,verignty of the State (as well it IaV ,e in, these tices of de ecti, andit t,'.uSoni, Iy a ptrtion of the peohle atd Sthtets of this Unin to tihe .'onstittti,:i al,, ltws of the United Stae.s) I should feel imyself recreant to the trust reposed in ie by the peopleo of Locisiana, did I fail to upldold th' sound C, stitutional principles uponl which the National Democrati" party of the United States enctered upn, and triundmha ntly carried the last Presidential election maintaining, as they do, the rights of property of the people of tihe South, both in the StateM and Territories, in vi,,late from attack whether of Federal o>r Territorial legislation. But I will not pe'rcit my mind to dwell on tle pc essi bility of being placed in such a pisi tion, feeling the proud assurance, that wien the crisis calls for action by the Legislature of Louisiana, you, Senators, will be as united in the assertion of her rights on the floor of the Senate, as you will be valiant in their defense, if need be, on the lield'of battle. On that day, if come it must, (and no son of the South will lament its dire ne cessity more than myself) every yes. tiire of party antagonism will have been swept away, and the people of Louisi ana, united, will rush to her unfurled banner, with you, Senuitors, in front, to do battle for her honer, her institutions and her sovereigsty.
