Rousseau, justice of the peace, for six dollars for fuhiishing dinners to 12 Jurors in the case of the State vs. slave Nel son, rejected—which reports having been sub mitted were unanimously approved. Then the Police Jury adjourned until o'clock A. 51. At 3 o'clock P. M. the Police Jury met, Pi*sent as before. The following report of the committee on the Island cut-off road, is presented and adopt ed, to wit : • To Ihe Honorable, the Polite Jury oftht Parith of Ibtrville: Your umlcrblgnctl, a committee appointed by your honora lilr I iim I v , at its last scrsiun in Juno, for the purpose of taking into consideration the pro|wiety of making a cut-off road h .' HH * the point,.known as Iberville Poiut, from the "Is land'' to that part of the Parish, known as "Manchac;" to examine the various localities wiiere »aid road may pass-, to estimate the cost of making the same, to ascertain how much of said cost can be raised by private subscription; to determine and fix upon the best locality for said Road, und generally to report to your- honorable body, all mat tors lu relation to said Road, to the end that the same may be made—have the honor to submit the following K eport : Yunr committee have discharged the duties imposed upon them by the Police Jury; and after diligent and careful in vestigations » id examination, they report that in their opinions saitl It oad should be !»ld off from the "Island to IHaucbac'' upon the lands of Lucien Guedry at the Island and coming out upon the other side at and upon the lands of 31ad. Ve. Joly and the heirs of Ursin Joly and Doctor Trasiinond Dupuy, and the heirs and late widow of Luc. Lesassier, for the following reasons: Bccause it is the Shortest aud most direct route for said road—because it cuts off no lands, that is to say runs through no one's laud, but goes through upon direct lines aud bccause this in thcopin ion of your couiraittce can be made for the least price; and because it there cuts off the most travel. Your committee think that said Road can be purchased and made for the sum of one thousand five hundred dollars, $1500, Or thereabouts, and thai of this sum five hunnred to one thousand dollars can be eas>' ' obtained by private sub scription in money or labor, perhaps a still larger sum than the last named, depending upon the locality of the Road. Your commtitee would rocommend tiiat the said Road be constructed as cheaply as post ible, so as to make it always passable for carriage' and all ordinary travel, and to this end recommend that over the sf/ampy portions of the Road, trees be cut down and laid ac oss said road from ditch to ditch and covered with the dirt thrown from the ditches upon either side—thus the road will be at but a small expense, rendered permanently good at but a trifling annual repair. Your committee further rccommcnd that your honorable body pass t>n ordinance making it the doty ofall inhabitants within five 'es of sei« roaii (upon the same side of the river) and upon the Missis ippi to work an nually upon said road, and that yo.ir honorable body ap point a Commissary of said road annually, to be known as "Commissary of the Island cut-off road" whose duty it shall always be to keep said road in repairs. Your committee congratalate themselves and their fellow citizens.gcnerally that your honorable body hnd at last moved in this important matter. Tbc making of this road is one of the very last impor tance to fie lower portion of the Parish upon the left bank «fthe river—a work tlintshouldbe made at once, nay your <coiumittce will add that it is a work that should have been made long sin;e. Of its very great importance, your com mittee feel that it is hardly necessary for them to speak, as all of the members of your honorable body are intimate with the locality—it' interests and necessities—still they feel tbat to the flill discharge of tbeir duties it is proper that they present to the Police Jury some of the many reasons, that command the immediate construction of the road. The construction of this road, will cut off over seven miles of travel, and will tend tobring nearer to each other <be lower and upper portion of the Parish of Iberville; it will facilitate bonds, which now hanp but loosely upon the («land, for your committee are of opinion that unless this road be constructed, the Island portion of the Parish will make a successful application at the coming session of the Legislature, to join the Parish of Ascension. It will bring the lower portion of the Island—now fre quently an Island in more ihan the name—to a closer prox imity to the seat of justice of the parish. Tt will enable its citizens to attend their church, from which tiiey are now cutoff by distance of travel, and the almost constant bad slate of the roads. It will be a positive advantage to over five hundred of the citizens of the parish; and it will be a great advantage to all ordinary travel, and facilitate com munication. Your committee are of option, that, in the cnS, by the construction of i-ïia road,the parish will be the gainer., as they estimate that over two hundred dollars, as an average sum, will be saved to the paris U treasury annu ally, aud this for the fees end mileage of she.iff, constable, and other judicial officers; the mileage of persons, te. — This should receive a g eat consideration from your honor able body. The inhabitants of the puitii of Iberville, from the church of St. Gabriel to the tower line, have paid the assessed parish tax into the parochial treasnry for the past forty-five years, a od during all of tUis time have never re ceived back, by way of appropriatio n, one single dollar!— • They have seen other portions of the parish improved, roads maue, and interaal improvements effected, while they themselves, from the church to the lower line of the parish, have never received one dollar for any appropriation whatcvor. lour committee suggest therefore that the granting of this necessary appropriation would lie bot a mere act of jnstice to this portion of the parish. In conclusion, your committee urge most strongly and in the most emphatic manner, the absolute utility and necessi ty of this cut-off road, aud urge in like manner its immedi m * "»"«troction, and to this end suggest that your honora ■ t>ic b«ty appoint three commissioners, clothed will füll pow A. ery crs to makc^said road, and that the necessary appropriation be made for the purpose. They are further of opinion that if the police jury provide the laud, pay for tile right of way, and build the necessary bridges, that the balance of the work can all be done by private subscription. They feel that they could say much more in relation to this road, but believe that it is unnecessary, thinkiug that they have already discharged the duties devolved upon them by the resolution of your houorable body at Its lust session, though they feel deeply impressed with the importance of those duties, involving in their discharge perhaps, interests so vital to their fellow citizens, whom they ineasurely repre sent. Your committee cannot however close this report, without saying one word in relation to what is generally regarded a delicate»*» - ..Iter; they allude to an additional tax, trilling and insignircunt though it be, to coine from the pockets of the people, for the purpose of Constructing this road. They understand that a certain portion of the pa rish, less interested immediately in this road, oppose its construction, upon this grounds tfhey trust that this is not the fact. They trust that no portion of the parish, especial ly a portion that has been so large a recipient Of State and parish patronage, can now be guilty of such penny wisdom and pound folly; and least of all they trust that 110 member of your body will obstruct this the legitimate expenditure of buta very small portion of the public funds, did the law permit partial parochial taxation. Your undersigned com mittee feel confident that the whole sum necessary to build, make and permanently establish this road, could be raised without an objection from the tax paying population upon the left bank of the river. But this, it is hoped, the honor of the remainder of their fellow citizens would forbid. All of which is respectfully submitted. Iberville, August 31st, 1600. (Signed) W. R. BOOTE, Chairman, N. Z. B louin, Lucien Guidky, Jn . S. Blanchard, J. Walsh.
