GOV. PACKARD'S ADDRESS
To tho Kepublicans of Louisiana.
New Okleans, April 25.
.Ttaie of Louisiana, Executive Depart
ment, New Orleans, La., April 25.
To Rtjmllkans rf Louisi'jna:
On this day, the 13th anniversary of
the surrender of New Orleans to forces
of the United Statos.it becomes my
duty to announce to you that aid and
countenance of the national gvern
inent has been withdrawn from repub
licans of Louisiana, and that a govern
ment revolutionary in form is practic
ally on the point of usurping control
of affairs in the State. I recall the cir
cumstances of the last electoral cam
paign only to thank you for the fidelity
to principle you then displayed. The
Republican party, as you know enter
ed upon the canvass united and strong
er than ever before; it had enlisted un
der its banner an iniluential class of
native born citizens of
OLD WHIG ANTECEDENTS,
who, to their honor be it said, still re
main faithful to the principles they es
poused and the government they sup
ported. It was further strengthened
by absence from state of opposition of
. that element whose previous adherence
to party had brought it into disrepute.
These causes combined to bring about
the remarkable success achieved by
the republican party in all doubtful
parishes, - with oue exception, even
where the white population preponder
ated, and which gave us a majority in
the legislature. Except where organ
ized violence prevailed our State ticket
carried every republican parish, anil
also a number of parishes which in the
last legislature were represented by
democratic members. I briefly sum
marize the historical events which have
since occurred. The general assembly
met the first of January last, organized
7ith a full legal
QEORCM IN BOTH HOUSES
and passed laws which were approved
by the then executive of the state, and
on the 2d of January last canvassed
and declared the vote for governor. At
this time tho nation was agitated by
doubt as to the result of the presiden
tial election, with the expectation tha
Sam'l. J. Tilden might possibly become
president of the United States, and
with no hope of success otherwise, my
opponent in the late campaign estal
lished a mock legislature, went through
the form of .inauguration in order that
there might be the semblance of a gov
ernment which liliien, u inauguraieu,
could possibly galvanize into vitality.
In the few days that followed Gen.
Xieholls and his adherents were encour
aged by unexpected
IiEFUSAL OF r-UESIDENT GRANT
to recognize the state government or
respond to the constitutional call of
the legislature, though he questioned
the legality of neither. On the Oth of
January I had scarcely taken my seat,
in the executive chair when the white
league rose in armed insurrection, and
by a coup de main took possession of
the supreme court, arsenal and stations
of metropolitan police, all located at
the capitol. Then came orders from
President Grant establishing statu cjuo,
the practical effect of which was to
confirm insurgents in advantages they
had gained and prevent any effort to
dispossess them. On inauguration of
President Ilayos state authorities made
order, directed that United States
troops occupying a building in the vi
cinity of the state house should be re
moved to their barracks. Those troops
PLACED TIIEKE BY PRESIDENT GRANT,
without formal call of the governor,
to protect tho returning board while
counting the vote for president. I
firmly believe that had the legal gov
ernment been recognized it could have
sustained itself without intervention
of troops, but the order for withdraw
al, issued under the circumstances and
in the manner it was issued, clearly in
dicated that even the moral support
which the legal government of Louisi
ana should have received from the na
tional administration, would be denied.
Had the general assembly continued in
session at the state house, I should have
deemed it my duty to have asserted
and defended tha government to the
last, notwithstanding withdrawal of
troops, but with the legislature disin
tegrated and . no prospect of present
success, I cannot task your tried fideli
ty by asking you longer to continue to
aid me iu the struggle I have thus far
maintained. I therefore announce to
you that I am compelled to abstain for
the present from all active assertion
of my government. I waive none of
my legal rights, but
YIELD ONLY TO SUPERIOR FORCES.
I am not wholly discouraged by the
fact that one by one republican state
governments of the south have been
forced to succumb to superior force, or
fraud, or policy; Louisiana, tho first
state rehabilitated after the war, is the
last state whose government thus falls,
and I believe it will be among the first
to raise itself again to the plane of
equal and honest representation. I de
sire that you maintain your party or
ganization and continue to battle for
the rights of citizenship and free gov
ernment. "We strive for these and not
for a man or men. It grieves me be
yond expression that the heroic efforts
you have made and the cruel sufferings
yoa have undergone to maintain re
publican principles in Louisiana have
had thi3 bitter ending. To those who
have so gallantly stood by me in the
long contest we have passed through I
tender my heartfelt thanks. To all I
counsel peace, patience, fortitude, and
a firm trust that eventually right and
justice will prevail.

I telegraphed this fact to President
Hayes, asking if this was a violation
of statu qno, and if not, whether the
release of these men by force, all civil
remedies having been exhausted, would
be so considered. The p resident replied :
"Your dispatch of the 24th is received.
The secretary of war has telegraphed
Gen. Augur a commission and will
shortly visit Louisana. In tho mean
time the president desires that the sit
uation remain unchanged." The com
mission came. In the meantime the
Xicholls government had crv.-dalized
into shape. So far from jermitting
tho situation to remain unchanged, it
had broken into ti.e tax collectors' offi
ces of the city, had taken forcible con
trol of the state institutions, and had
strengthened itself on all sides. Not

induced a number of tho members of

take seats in the Nieholls house, thus
giving it a returning board quorum.
Prior to the meeting of the legisla

Mr. Editor. "While reposing on the
mossy railing of the bridge, crossing
the large stream north of the South
Pole and directly South of tho North,
my attention was arrested by footsteps
approaching, on looking up I espied
the identical person advancing, who
but one week before had met with that
frightful accident. Circumstances di
rected our thoughts in the same chan
nel. With a military air and a face al
most as perfect as a Greek Statue, only
for lines traced by trouble or disap
pointment, he said he didn't care for
the fall, but didn't see what it was put
in the paper for ; and as to his being

anything great, save helping some one
establish a "Gents Furnishing Store."

checked himself, bade me adieu rather
abrubtly, and hurried down the path
toward the post otiice.

was absent. On the first of January
last no republican or independent mem
ber would consent to act with the
Xicholls house, consequently, in order
to obtain even the appearance of organ
ization, they had been compelled to call
to their aid three men defeated at the
polls whose election had not been pre
viously claimed. The inquiry therefore
seems pertinent iu this connection,
RETURNING eoard quorum
was so effoctual for Xicholls' claim,
why was it that such a. quorum was
ignored while it remained faithful to
the legal government of the State?
That government had a returning !
board quorum from the day which the
general assembly convened, i::;d the
legislature, duly organized, remained
in legal existence till disentegrated by
direct action of the commission. This
result having been achieved, it is a
matter of record that congratulatory
messages were exchanged between the
president and Lis commission. On the
following day the president, by formal
An old farmer of this county sends
us the following, and as he has a large
experience m nog raising, we recom
mend it to your careful attention. As
much has been said of late upon the
subject of hog disease and the preven
tion of the same; also immense amount
of capital lost on account of these same
diseases prevailing iu the State, I
thought I might suggest a few practic
al ideas, gained from long experience,
which might benefit the hog raising
1. One must learn tnat hogs have
natural diseases and contagious epi
demics, the same as human beings.
2. Learn that a preventive is better
than a cure.
After the disease gets a firm hold,
medicine has but little effect in stay
ing its course. Give your hogs a dry
place to sleep in ; a clean trough from
which to eat; feid plenty of salt and
c.iarcoal, and you will never be troub
led with sickness among them. Look
after the young hogs and see that they
have all their black teeth knocked out.
My experience is that nine tenths of
all the disexses killing so many hogs is
black tooth. Many through ignorance,
call it cholera.
I do not wish to ba understood that
there is no such disease as cholera, but
that it is less prevalent than black tooth.
It arises from worms iu the stomach,
which causes a stagnation of the circu
lation and digestive powers. Sa!t pos
sesses great curative powers, and ha3
mere electricity than any other miner
al known to man; charcoal is a strong
alkali, and the two form a perfect worm
destroyer. They will keep up internal
reaction, increase circulation and keep
the hogs in perfect health.
In traveling over tho, central part of j
the Stat last December, everyone was i
com plaining 0f cholera killing so many
of their hogs. I visited ono man "who
had ju3t bought sixteen dollars' worth
of cholera medicine, which he intended
to give his hogs. He had thirty orfor-
I tj hogfj, I toll the owner that in my
opinion they had black tooth, and that
if he would knock them out he might
save his hogs, and throw his medicines
away. They were in tho last stages of
the disease, both sides of the upper jaw
being ulcerated, and some fairly rotten,
caused by two long, hooked black teeth.
He pulled them out, and the result was
that his hogs all lived and did well.
The symptoms are first, two black
teeth appearing in the upper jaw. usu

These prevent the In g from eating, and
