The following is the text of the czars manifesto our faithful and beloved subjects know the Strong interest we have constantly Felt in the destinies of the oppressed Christian population of Turkey. Our desire to ameliorate their lot 1ms been shared by the whole russian nation which now shows itself ready to Bear fresh sacrifices to alleviate the position of the christians in the Balkan Peninsula. The blood and property of one faithful subject have always been dear to us Aud our whole reign attests our constant solicitude to preserve to Russia the Benefit of peace. This solicitude never failed to actuate us during the diplomatic events which occurred in Herzegovina Bosnia and Bulgaria. Our object before All was to effect an amelioration in the position of the christians in the East b t Means of Pacific negotiations and in concert wit ii the great european Powers our allies and friends for two years we have made incessant efforts to induce the Porte to Cheet such reforms As would protect the christians in Bosnia Herzegovina and Bulgaria from the arbitrary measures of the local authorities. The accomplish mein of these reforms was absolutely stipulated by Anterior engagements contracted by the Porte toward the whole of Europe. Our efforts supported by the diplomatic representations made in common by other governments have not however attained their object. Tile Porte has remained unshaken in its formal refusal of any effective guarantee for the Security of its Hristian subjects and has rejected Hie conclusions of the constantinople Confer once.

But our expectation was j not fulfilled. The Porte did not defer to i this unanimous wish of Christian Europe j and did not adhere to the conclusions of tile i protocol.

By her refusal Turkey places us under the necessity of a recourse to arms. Profoundly convinced of the Justice of our cause and humbly committing ourselves to the Grace and help of the most High we make known to our faithful subjects that the moment foreseen when we pronounced the words to which All Russia responded with Complete unanimity Lias now arrived. We expressed the intention to act independently when we deemed it necessary and when russians Honor should demand it. In now invoking the Blessing of god upon our valiant armies we give them the order to Cross the turkish Frontier. Signed Alexander.

The vote stood Spofford 140, Viltz i Blank 12 total 153 necessary to a Choice 77. A caucus of the Republican members of the general Assembly to night adopted the following address to gov. S. B. Packard we recognize and appreciate tile Fidelity with which you have sought to carry out the obligations which you assumed when in the presence of a legally organized quorum of both houses of the general Assembly after a formal constitutional canvass of the votes Jou took tile oath of office As governor of the state of Louisiana. The sympathies and Active co operation of tile Republican members of the general Assembly have been with you and your associates in the state government in your struggle to maintain your authority against overwhelming obstacles at Home and abroad. One of tile first acts of the general Assembly was to pass a joint Resolution calling upon the president of the United states in it01? j a in or a Hie Constitution of the United bit its to Accord tile la us co Vern naut support against Domestic violence which threatened its overthrow. In response to that Appeal after some delay an order was issued by president Grant setting Forth that you had been legally declared governor of the state that the supreme court violently set up by your opponent was destitute of the Legal authority and directing that if necessity for recognition should arise recognition must be Given to Packard and not to Nicholls. Encouraged by expectations thus held out that the government acknowledged to be the Legal government of the state would eventually be recognized by the president the members of tile general Assembly faithful to their Trust although encountering Many hardship a patiently waited the action of the National government. Rumours which soon took authentic shape were circulated that overzealous friends of the president elect for whose Success hundreds of devoted republicans in Louisiana Laid Down their Ives had bargained to give away the states of Louisiana and South Carolina to our political opponents. Hie outgoing president failed to take further action upon the application of our general Assembly. Reluctant to give even a passing credence to these seemingly impossible re ports the general Assembly patiently remained in session and after the accession of president Hayes adopted with a quorum present in both houses and transmitted to him a concurrent Resolution reciting that Domestic violence prevailed in the state and requesting under the Constitution and Laws of the United states his Aid to suppress it. No reply has been vouchsafed to that request. The president sent to the state a commission of five gentlemen who submitted a proposition for a reorganization of the general Assembly which though involving the waiver of undoubted Legal rights on our part was accepted by the Republican members. In deference to the understood wishes of the president that proposition was rejected by our opponents who in turn submitted a plan flagrantly unjust and violative of Law. Resolutions adopted by the general Assembly in joint caucus which have been published have explained by what Means of cajole by persuasion and threats the members of the commission professing simply to aet in an an individual capacity hut wielding All the Power and influence of authorized agents of the president sent to tile state for a specific purpose induced a sufficient number of the legislature to give to the opposing body a majority of members legally returned elected. J his aet on of the commission was followed by an official order of the president made at the request of Gen. Nicholls directing the withdrawal of the United states troops and virtually sustaining the opposing government. During the 110 Days and More that have elapsed since you took your beats governor no word of encouragement recognition or support has been accorded you by the National administration. On the contrary a disposition has been clearly manifested to encourage strengthen and maintain by All direct and indirect Means the government of your opponent already so Strong in the overpowering armed Force it has mustered to its support in the capital of the state. Under these circumstances whilst abating none of our belief in the rightful Ness of your title we cannot hut feel that forces which neither you nor ourselves Are Able to resist Render it impossible to enforce your rights. At the present time to attempt to do so would Only add to the blood which has already been fruitlessly shed in defense of Republican principles in this state. We therefore Are respectfully constrained to advise that for the time being you refrain from actively asserting your unquestionable rights trusting to the future to vindicate the righteousness of your cause. The following letter has been forwarded to the president m it to a a new Orleans. April 24, 1877. Collis excellency k. B. Hayes. President honoured sir the undersigned republicans of Louisiana deem it their duty to assure you that although they had hoped and expected a different result would be arrived at in the settlement of the Louisiana question yet they Are satisfied that you acted for what in your judgment was pro move of the Best interest of the whole country. We Are consequently resolved to carry out in Good Faith the settlement and Accord to the Nicholls government our recognition and support relying on it to carry out in Good Faith its pledges to the people of this state. We do not understand that you in the slightest degree in this matter abandon Republican principles and believe you desire to promote the interests of the Republican party the legitimate offspring of the old whig party through which we cherish the expectation that you will advocate our internal improvement interest in government Aid for levees Southern Pacific Railroad outlet to the Mississippi River and for such other Public works As Are necessary to assist in developing the resources of our state and of the whole country. Relying on your Aid in these and All other matters tending to produce peace Concord and Prosperity in our state we will give your administration our cordial support. Signed John Ray r. M.

Nicholls Secretary of state and auditor also took Possession of their offices. Gov. Packard to Day issued an address to the republicans of the state setting Forth his reasons for withdrawing from further contest at the present and sketching the history of the struggle in which he asserts the right has been overthrown. Closing he says i therefore announce to you that i am compelled to abstain for the present from All Active assertion of my government. I waive Cone of my Legal rights but yield Only to Superior Force. Louisiana the first state rehabilitated after the War is the last state whose government Falls and i believe it will be among the first to raise itself again to the plane of equal rights and honest representation. I advise that you maintain your party organization and continue to Battle for the rights of citizenship and free government. Ever strive for these and not for Man or men. It grieves my beyond expression that the heroic efforts you have made and tile cruel sufferings you have undergone have had this bitter ending. Ohio news items. Washington april 25. The report of the Louisiana commissioners was Given to the press to night. It is dated at new Orleans april 21, and addressed to the president. They say in accordance with your request the undersigned have visited this City and passed the last sixteen Days in ascertaining the political situation in Louisiana and endeavouring to bring about a peaceful solution of its difficulties. Iii View of the declaration in the letter of the Secretary of state that we should direct our efforts to the end of securing the recognition of a single legislature As the depository of the representative will of the people of Louisiana leaving if Nee assay to judicial or other constitutional arbitrage it within the state the question of ultimate right Aud in View of your determination to withdraw the troops of the United states to their Barracks As soon As it could be done without endangering the peace we addressed ourselves to the task of securing a common legislature of undisputed authority competent to compose the existing political contentions and to preserve peace without and Aid from the National government. To this end we endeavoured to assuage the bitterness and animosity we found existing on both sides so As to secure a Public opinion less unfavourable to such concessions As were indispensable to our Success. In obtaining such legislature and such general acquiescence in its authority As would insure social order we have had full conference with the two gentlemen who claim the gubernatorial office and with Many other members of their respective governments in their executive judicial and legislative departments. We have also conversed very freely with Large delegations of men of business w Ith Many of tile District judges and with hundreds of prominent citizens of All parties and Raees representing not Only this City but almost every perish Iii this state. A e have also received Many printed and written statements of fact and Legal arguments and every person with whom we came in Contact has shown a desire to give us All possible information bearing upon the unfortunate political divisions in this state. The commissioners then give a Brief statement of the condition of affairs on their arrival at new Orleans and say they found it difficult to ascertain the precise extent to which the respective governments were acknowledged outside of new Orleans. Of the supreme courts the commissioners say the claim to the legality of the supreme court composed of chief Justice Man Nim and associates who were nominated by gov Nice or and confirmed by his Senate rests upon the same basis As Quot the title of gov. Nicholls and his Senate. The claim to the legality of the supreme court composed of chief Justice Ludeling and his associates rests either upon their right to hold Over in Case the Nicholls court is illegal or upon the legality of Kellogg and the Packard Senate which confirmed the judges upon the nomination of gov. Kellogg and while it had a returning Board quorum. Considerable space is Given to a statement of the Legal question upon which the right of the respective governments depended. Counsel for Nicholls claimed that the act establishing the returning Board when applied to the election of state officers and members of the Assembly is in violation of the provisions of the Constitution which provide that the returns of All elections shall be made to the Secretary of state. Counsel for Packard insisted that the legislature had the Power to create this returning Board and give it the authority with which the act clothes it also that the supreme court of the state had settled the constitutionality of the act.

The Louisiana commissioners have returned and visited the executive mansion to Day during the Cabinet session. Business was suspended when there was an informal conversation Between them and the Cabinet respecting their Mission. The commissioners furnished a final report of their proceedings to the president who returned thanks for the satisfactory Way in which they had discharged their duties. New Orleans april25. By five of clock this morning gov. Packard and All his adherents with the exception of one policeman had left the state House and chief of policy Boylan with a squad of police took Possession. At noon the legislature adjourned to the lature could not create a returning Board or clothe it with these Powers. The commissioners quote the following sentence from the arguments of Nicholls counsel As to the presidential electors the Mode of their appointment is by the Constitution of the United states left to the legislature of the state therefore tile general Assembly misfit create ail3 tribunal whatever and confide to it the appointment of the electors for president arid vice president consequently it May properly authorize such a tribunal in the Case of the election of presidential electors by the people to count the votes and decide and declare who were entitled to seats in the electoral College. As matters stood on their arrival at new Orleans the commissioners say the Legal title of the claimants to the office of governor depended on the question they have stated. There was no judicial tribunal acknowledged to be authoritative by both parties by which it could tie solved. The Only Hope of practical solution was by the Union of so Many members of the rival Legislatures As would make a legislature with a constitutional quorum Iii both the Senate and House of members whose title to their seats is valid under either View of the Law. With a legislature of undisputed authority the settlement of the other questions could As stated in the letter of instructions to our commission be gradually worked out by the prevalent author a which the legislative Power when undisputed is quite competent to exert in composing conflicts in coordinate branches of the government. Within the last three Days this first great step in restoring peace to the state has been accomplished. In consequence of the withdrawal of members from the Packard to the Nicholls legislature the latter body has now eighty seven returning Board members in the House and thirty two returning Board members in the Senate. Sixty one members constitute a constitutional quorum in the House and Nineteen Iii the Senate. It is proper that we should say that it was in View of the foregoing facts especially the consolidating of the Legislatures and our knowledge of the condition of Louisiana derived from personal Contact with the people that we were induced to suggest in our Telegram of the 20th, that the immediate announcement of the time when the troops would be withdrawn to their Barracks would be better for the peace of Louisiana than to postpone such announcement to some Distant Day. The commissioners holding various shades of political belief cannot Well concur in any sketch of the past or probable future of Louisiana. We have fore borne in this report to express any opinion on the Legal questions arising upon the foregoing statement of facts because our letter of instructions seemed to Call for a statement of facts rather than an expression of opinion by the commissioners. We All however indulge in confident Hopes of better Days for All races in Louisiana. Among the reasons for these Hopes Are the resolutions of tile Nicholls legislature and letter of gov. Nicholls herewith submitted and which have already been Given to the Public. Ause the recent order to vacate the receivership and turn Over the property to the Farlow party shall be heard at Cleveland on the 8th of May.
