jjew Orleans, September 26.—Governor
Wivnaoth to-day vetoed the civil rights bill,
rasing (hereby a perfect storm of denuncia

The session of the House, after the recep
tion of the veto message, was occupied chief
ly by colored members in its denunciation ;

and repudiating him as no longer a member of
the Radical party. The white members of the
Legislature are confident of sustaining the
The following is the veto message :
To the Honorable Speaker and Members of
the House of Representatives : I return to
tlie Hofise of Representatives an act to pro
tect all persons in their public and civil rights,
without my signature, for the following rea
sons, to wit: the rights and privileges enu
merated in the first section of the hill, and
sought to be enforced thereby, are fuUy and
explicitly recognized and established in the
Constitution ol the State. Even a foreigner not
a citizen lets the same right to travel and be
entertained as a citizen, and there is nothing
in onr jurisprudence which makes distinctions
on account of race or color, except in so far
ns relates to slavery. The organic law of the
- laud gives to all persons perfect equality tof
civil and political rights, including the
privilege of enforcing these rights iii the
courts, and employing all the legal remedies
which have heretofore been found requisite
to secure their rights to all persons.
The means however proposed in the fonrth
section of the hill for enforcing these rights,
are in my judgment not merely novel and un
precedented, but impracticable and perni
cious. It seeks to make that a crime which
has never to my knowledge been so consid
ered in those communities where the highest
regard is paid to the persona] rights of all
men. There is and always ought to be a
broad line of demarcation fixed between a
crime and the breach of obligation growing
out of civil contracts, and we demoralize the
public conscience and confusp its concep
tions of right and wrong when we seek to
obliterate so evident a distinction. Our
statute book is filled already with criminal
laws that arc never enforced and never .twill
he. until public opinion rises to their respect
ive levels- The history of the world is full
of examples of this sort, when acts not in
themselves criminal have been vainly declared
so, and in this wav a levity of feeling in re
gard to real crimes is produced. ,
We relapse into the legislation of a less en
lightened period when we try to convert an
act which is properly a question of civil dam
ages into an offence against the peace and
dignity of the State, and it ought to he care
fully borne in mind that we cannot hope by
legislation to control the question of personal
association ; much less can we hope to force
ou those who differ from us in our views of
what is humane or courteous or ChriAian-
like. Mutual forbearance and kindness and
the noble belief in the brotherhood of man
i)clst sirring from a higher source than the
tear of punishment. They can never be
forced to grow by^pains and penalties. :
Again, so far as railroads andf steamboats are
concerned, it must be borne in mind, that the
regulation of commerce between the Several
States was wisely confided under the Consti
tution of the United States to the National
Congress. The effect of this-grant of power
was clearly to prevent the confusion which
would arise from conflicting legislation on
such subjects by the 41 fie rout contiguous
States, and the wisdom of the provision ap
pears more clearly every day as the means of
transportation are increased and improved.
By the second and third sections of this act
in distmetiofi is ’deafly made ^ between rail
roads and steamboats whose routes are whol-
iv within this .State and those whose routes
are beyond. Of course’ our criminal jurisdic
tion cannot go beyond our State lines, and in
this respect the act seems impolitic, and lia
ble to produce. unnecessary confusion and
j.tigation for experimental legislation of this-
kinds for which the sanction of no successful
precedent can be adduced.
A more unfavorable occasion than the prefl-j
ent could hardly be imagined. In the midst
of a most exciting political campaign, fit a
time when the passions, animosities and re
sentments consequent upon a great war'and
attendant upon great and sudden changes in
affairs, are roused to the highest pitch in
tensity, and when the prejudices regarding
race are inflamed to Tlie utmost, it is hereby
proposed to enforce bypenalties what is prac-^
ticaily class" legislation, ' and to maintain
and confirm class distinction. The effect,
in my judgment, of such an act wohld be to
defeat rather than to promote the ends ap-
1 parently d&tS 'in’ i-igw by the author of the
WU. The barriers of rata instead of being
thereby removed, wul# be increased in
stantly fretted into activity. In the mean
time. any person, colored as well as white, is
equally secured by the Constitution in the-
enjoyment of political and civil rights, and .
in his remedy for their infringement. The-'
Courts are open to all alike. The same rale
rule obtains in national and State Courts.
The Judges of the State Courts and their of
ficers are amenable to*and dependent upon
all citizens alike; colored and white consti
tute juries. Those of the lately enfranehised-
who are wise and reflecting, will not ask fox
more; they will rather deprecate a kind of
legislation which, instead of advancing their
present condition, only renders the enemies
of their race more bitter and determined in
their hostility, and furnishes them weapons
whereby' to assail the right which the colored
men have already acquired.
In returning the bill without my signature,
it is hardly necessary for me to say that I am
prepared, so far as lies in my province and
power, to enforce the new Constitution as it
exists. Such is my desire as well as my duty,
but when I find the act in question to be, in
my best judgment, unnecessary and unwise,
and for the reasons I have stated calculated
to demoralize the public conscience, and in
tensify a distinction which wifi surely yield
to the power of time and the growth of more
catholic views of our personal relations, it
becomes no less-clearly inyiltlty tojdqcfine to.

Governor of Louisiana.

Atlanta, Sept 26.—In the Senate the bill
declaring negroes ineligible to office was j
made the special order for Monday.
In the House the Committee on the State
of the Republic made a report, which was al
most unanimously adopted. The report says ;
that many of the issues which agitated the 1
country for year's have been determined by
the arbitration of the sword. Georgia, in
common with the people of other States com
prising the de facto rGovemment of the Con
federacy,' acquiesced in tie • unavoidable Con
sequences of the struggle. While believing
it the right of the State to return to the
Union on terms of equality with other mem
bers of the Union, with' the privileges and
immunities of all citizens unimpaired and
protected under the Constitution, the people
acquiesced in the plan of r../•<■>>-.»—
thought necessary arm prescribed by the Pies,
ident. .. j
Although the pains and penalties imposed
on the best citizens were regarded as unjust
and oppressive, passively yielding to the ex
ecutive authority of the United States, the
people of Georgia' proceeded to organize a
State government in harmony with and in
obedience to the terms of the President’s
Ilian of reconstruction, complying with every
condition ; the ratification of the emancipa
tion of slaves ; the repudiation of the legal
liabilities of the State ; the recognition of the
validity of the public debt of the United
States. Reconstruction under the Congres
sional plan is an accomplished fact. *Our
representatives elected undeir and by virtue
of that plan have been admitted into the Con
gress of the United States.
AYe deprecate the highly inflammatory and
violently abusive character of certain, political
publications and public speeches which un
duly inflame and excite the passions andipre-
judices of both races. We deprecate the
criminally false assertions in-the public prints
and in public addresses, made for the express
purpose of arousing the hostility of the negro
race agaiqst the white race. We deprecate
advice and suggestions given by men, who
in many instances are not identified with the
interests of the State, which have induced
negroes to arm themselves for their defence
in the exercise of their rights and privileges,
which it is falsely asserted a majority of the
white race desire to wrest from the negro
race. We deprecate the fact that men among
ns persistently. pervert and exaggerate facts,
find draw iippn imagination for material for
*publication, and give to the wbrfd Tisanes of
falsehood, tending to produce abroad the
false impression that ihere is little protection
for person or property, little security for life
and lib er ty iff this S.tqte.

A Scheme to Hud off Cotton Speculators.
: There is a project oe foot in some of the
counties of thisState vjiich. if it can be suc
cessfully set on foot it all the counties, jiot
only in Georgimibut alj over the South, win
effectually stopTba game which speculators
have been playing ujim Southern planters
• since the war, especpJly last, season, and
which they are now .tying to play, again, by
ruling dawnL the priet of cotton until they
can get it all out of fie hands -of planters,
and then selling it: to panufacture^s at enor-'
mous profits. I .
The scheme, as esp'uined to us by an intel
ligent gentleman, is tiis: Let all the plan
ters of a county hfivefi common warehouse
to store their cotton, P>1 let this warehouse
he under the control of several responsible,
and reliable gentleme), selected by the plan-
tersiof the county,'wlpse duty it shall be .}o-
receive and receipt foj the cotton, and
that it is properly st jred and protected.'—
Then, npon tina aggregate amount of cotton
stored, let these genthpen borrow money at
a reasonable rate of inprest, and from it sup
ply the immediate ptguniary necessities of
the planter, at the.samijrate of interest upon
.which it was obtained ly fhe keepersj of the. :
warehoqsa-r-each'ifiantcT having the privilege
:to borrow- money in proportion to.the amotmt '
! of cotton, he has in stole, If a planter, is wil
ling to take: the marfct price for his'cotton
and desires to sell, let the warehouse "buy it,
if the market price is too low. and it then be
comes the property of the other plahters of
the association, ard becomes also a portion
of the common stick upon which the money
is borrowed to supply the demands of the
By this means it Is thought planters will be
enabled to hold their cotton for good prices,
I and instead, of their labor being the sport and
plaything of speculators, it will rule and con
trol them, if not shut them out of the market
altogether; for if the entire cotton crops of
counties can be thus collected in the hands
of a few planters, they can sell directly to
manufacturers aiid consuuers of the raw ma
terial, anil not a bale liil into the bauds of
speculators. The price vill then be settled
by and between the prodiccr and consumer
of. cotton, and the planter can demand Tiis
price instead of being forced to take what
ever is offered. When the question of price
is settled betwen the producer and copsumer,
then, if the speculator wants to show Lift
hand, and force the manufacturer to pay
more for cotton than the planter asks, let him
overbid the manufacturer, and he is then en
titled to control the price, for the planter lias
fairly disposed of the right to do so.
. We believe that some such scheme as we
have crudely outlined will soon be adopted
by planters. It is certain that, as tilings are
now working,, the planter v ill never be able
to control the price of liis <• iltou crop, which
he surely has tlie right to do.—Macon Tel.
The Wat to Stop Rtotn:—A week or so
ago a negro was murdered at Lagrange, a
few. miles from Helena, Arkansas, and as the:
murderers were, Wack, it tya# reported they
were Ku-Klux. A Rev. Mr. * White, Repre-j
sensitive in the -Legislature, 1 in preaching in
Helena to the negroes, notified them he would
preach next day at Lagrange,' and it would be
a good time for them to go there armed and
avenge the death of tho murdered negro. On
Monday one hundred • anil fifty to two hun
dred negroes, armed and ‘ mounted, started
for Lagrange, and it was given out that La
grange and Mariana were both to be destroy
ed and vengeance taken on the white citizens.
Great excitement was produced at Helena
among the Conservatives, who went to the
leading Radicals and insistedthat they should
interfere and prevent bloodshed—but they
had no intention of intAforihg, and seemed
gratified at the prospect of a decided;riqb
jgy^Stgr Soitta •
The prominent citizens then very qnietly
informed t.Uft leading Radicals that if the out
rage should be committed, the bodies of tlie
prominent Radicals in Helena should be belli
as hostages and treated accordingly. This
had the desired effect, and Wygert,’editor of
the Radical newspaper, and others, accom
panied the Conservative sheriff, and they ar
rived in Lagrange after White had preached
and before any act of violence bad been com
mitted, and the mob was quietly dispersed.
The citizens of Lagrange had made arrange
ments to give them a bloody reception. That-
is the way to prevent these outrages, hold tlie
scalawag leaders, who incite the negroes to
acts ot violence, responsible for them, and
we shall hear of no’ more of them.— FicA s-

Some rivals atute tliat tlie .ETNA pays a large amount of dividend to its Stockholders, in
face of the reports of the Commissioners of New York and Massachusetts to the contrary,
(which can be seen at onr office). *
The force of this statement of our rivals is also destroyed by tbe feet that very few Coin-
panics have so low ratio of expense to income as the iETNA, and no Company pays a larger
dividend to Policy Holders.

Gents: I take pleasure iff acknowledging the return
of Premium Note given by me to iEtna life Insurance
Company, cancelled, by the dividend. This demon
strates that the" Company does all it claims, viz: pays
a 50 per cent dividend, as represented to me at the
time of insuring. In view of these' facts, I believe the
iEtna to be the Company for the patronage of the
citizens of Jilpu^gop^ezy apA Alabama.
