Prince Bismarck has tendered his Resigna the presidents instructions to the Louisiana commission the following is the presidents letter of instructions to the Louisiana commission Washington. April 3. To lion. Chaple b. Law once Joseph it. Hawley John m. Harlan John c. Brown Aud Wayne Mac Kioh commissioners gentlemen i am instructed by the president to Lay before you some observations upon the occasion and objects which have led him to invite you As members of the commission about to visit the state of Louisiana to undertake this Public service. Upon assuming his office the president finds the situation of affairs in Louisiana such As to justly demand his prompt Aud solicitous attention for the situation presents As one of its features the apparent intervention of the military Power of the United states in Domestic controversies which undoubtedly Divide opinions and disturb the Harmony of the people of that state. This intervention arising during the term and by authority of his predecessor throws no present duty upon the president except to examine and determine the real extent form and effect to which such intervention actually exists and decide As to the time manner Aud conditions which should be observed in putting an end to it. It is in Aid of his intelligent and prompt discharge of this duty that the president has sought the service of this commission to Supply by Means of its examination conducted in the state of Louisiana some information that May be pertinent to the circumspection and Security of any measures he May resolve noon. It will be readily understood that the service Des cd of and entrusted to this commission d is not include any examination into or re it upon the facts of the recent state election or of the canvass of votes East at that election. So far As attention to that subject May be necessary the president cannot but feel that the reports of committees of the two houses of Congress a id other Public information at hand will dispense with Aud should preclude any original exploration by the commission of that Field of inquiry. But it is most pertinent and important in coming to a decision upon the precise question of executive duty before him that the president should know what Are the real impediments to regular Legal and peaceful proceedings under the Laws and Constitution of the state of Louisiana by which the anomalies of the government there presented May be put in course of settlement without involving the element of military Power As either an agent or a make weight in such solution. The successful ascertainment of these impediments the president would confidently expect would indicate to the people of that state the Wisdom and Mode of their removal. The unusual circumstances which attended and followed the state election and canvass from its relation to the excited feelings and interests of the presidential election May have retarded in the state of Louisiana the persuasive influences by which great social and material interests common to the whole people of a state and the Pride of Anier ican character As a Law abiding nation ameliorate the disappointments and dissolve the resentments of close and zealous political contests but the president both Hopes and believes that the great body of the people of Louisiana Are now prepared to treat the unsettled results of their state election with a Calm and conciliatory spirit. Of it be too much to expect a Complete concurrence in a single government for that state at least the president May anticipate a submission to the peaceful resources of the Laws and Constitution of the state of All their dissensions at once relieving themselves from reproach and their fellow citizens of the United states from the anxieties which must Ever attend a prolonged dispute As to the title Aud administration of the government of one of the states of the Union. The president therefore desires that you should devote your first and principal attention to a removal of the obstacles to an acknowledgement of one government for the purpose of an exercise of authority within the state and a representation of the state in its relations to the general government under Sec. 4, Art. 4, of the Constitution of the United states leaving if necessary to judicial or other constitutional arbitrage it within the state the question of ultimate right. If these obstacles should prove insuperable from whatever reason and the Hope of a single government in All its departments be disappointed it should be your next Endeavor to accomplish the recognition of a single legislature As the depository of the representative will of the people of Louisiana. This great department rescued from dispute the rest of the problem could gradually be worked out by the prevalent authority which the legislative Power when undisputed is quite competent to exert in composing conflicts in co ordinate branches of the government. An attentive consideration of the provision under which the Federal Constitution and acts of Congress provide or permit military intervention by the president in the Protection of the state against dome tic violence has satisfied the president that the use of this authority in determining or influencing disputed elections in a state is most carefully to be avoided. Undoubtedly As was held by the supreme court in the Case of Luther is Borden the Appeal from a state May involve such an inquiry As to the lawfulness of the authority which invokes the intervention of the president in supposed pursuance of the Constitution but it is equally True that neither the constitutional provision nor acts of Congress were framed with any such design. Both obviously treated a Case of Domestic violence in a state As an outbreak against the Law and authority of the established government which the state was unable to suppress by its own strength a Case wherein every department of a state government has a disputed representation and the state therefore furnishes to the Federal government no internal political recognition upon which the Federal executive can rely will present a ease of so much difficulty that it is of pressing importance to All interests in Louisiana that it should be avoided. A single legislature would greatly relieve this difficulty for that department of the state government is named b the Constitution As the necessary applicant when it can be convened for military intervention by the United states if therefore the disputing interests can concur Iii or be reduced to a single legislature for the state of Louisiana it would be a great step in composing this Utah App strife. The president leaves entirely to the commission the conciliatory influences which in their judgment formed on the spot May seem to them to Conduce to the proposed end. His own determination that Only Public considerations should inspire and attend this Effort to give Ascendancy i Louisiana to the things that belong to peace is evinced by his selection of the commissioners who offer to the country in their own character every guarantee of Public motives and methods in the transaction which they have undertaken. Your report of the result of this Endeavor will satisfy the president he does not doubt of the Wisdom of his selection and his plenary Trust in the commission. The second and less important subject of attention during your visit to new Orleans will be the collection of accurate and trustworthy information from Public officers and prominent citizens of All political connections As to the state of Public feeling in the Community at Large upon the general questions which affect a peaceful and Safe exercise Iii the state of Louisiana of All Legal and political privileges conferred by the Constitution of the United states upon All citizens. The maintenance and Protection of these rights and privileges by All constitutional Means and by every just moral and social influence Are the settled purpose of the president in his administration of the government. He will Hope to learn from your investigations that this purpose will be aided and not resisted by the substantial and effective Public opinion of the great body of the people of Louisiana the president does not wish to impose any limit upon your stay in Louisiana that would tend to defeat the full objects of your visit. He is however extremely desirous to find it in his Power at the earliest Day compatible with a Safe exercise of that authority to put an end to an appearance of military intervention in Domestic affairs in Louisiana and he awaits your return with the confident Hope that your report will enable him promptly to execute a purpose he has so much at heart. The president desires me to add that the publication of the results of your visit he shall Hope to make immediately after their communication to him. I have the Honor to be with great respect your obedient servant. We. M. Evarts. New Orleans april 6. The commission organized to Day by the election of judge Lawrence chairman and Gen.

The commissioners then inquired As to the feasibility of uniting the undisputed members of the legislature in one body and Packard replied that he had not consulted any member of the legislature on this subject but he believed it to be entirely impracticable. He did not think the democrats would consent to any such arrangement. Gov. Packard stated that he was satisfied if recognized by the president and reinstated in Possession Oil he court building arsenals and arms and accorded the moral support of the National government he could sustain himself without the intervention of the United states troops.
