THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF OHIO,

RELATING TO

The expulsion of members of the Louisiana legislature by the armed forces

of the United States.

JANUARY 2, 1875.- Referred to the Committee on the Judiciary and ordered to be

printed.

Resolved by the general assembly of the State of Ohio, That the recent expulsion of the members and officers of the Louisiana house of representatives by an armed force of United States soldiers, after the body had been duly organized in a manner similar to that which the courts of the State had pronounced lawful and proper, was an outrage utterly defenseless in its atrocity, and calls for the severest censure and pun. ishment on all its actors, aiders, and abettors.

Resolred, That the governor be requested to furnish a copy of this resolution to each of our Senators and Representatives in Congress, and to the governors of the several States.

HARLEM RIVER.

JOINT RESOLUTION

OF

THE LEGISLATURE OF NEW YORK,

ASKING

For the improvement of the Harlem River.

JANUARY 25, 1875.-Referred to the Committee on Commerce and ordered to be

printed.

STATE OF NEW YORK.

IN ASSEMBLY,

Albany, January 15, 1875. On motion of Mr. Smith:

Whereas the commercial interests of the whole country, and especially of the city and State of New York, demand the early improvement of Harlem River and Spuyten Duyvil Creek, from the North River to the East River, through the Harlem Kills, so as to afford a safe and convenient channel for vessels of all classes navigating the North River, and bound for ports on the East River, Long Island Sound, and in the Eastern States, thus shortening the distance of the travel between the North River and the waters of the Sound, and of a large portion of the city of Brooklyn lying in the East River, and between the North River and the Eastern States by more than twenty miles around the Battery, of the tedious, expensive, and unsafe navigation of the waters that skirt the city, and thus avoiding the dangerous passage through Hello Gate: Therefore,

Resolved, if the senate concur,) That our Senators and Representatives in Congress be requested to use their influence for an early appropriation of the amount necessary and requisite for such improvements. By order.

HIRAM CALKINS,

Clerk.

RECIPROCITY WITH CANADA.

JOINT RESOLUTIONS

OF

THE LEGISLATURE OF VERMONT,

IN REGARD TO

Reciprocity of trade with the Dominion of Canada.

JANUARY 25, 1875.—Referred to the Committee on Commerce and ordered to be printed.

Resolred by the senate and house of representatives, That, having an intelligent regard for the best interests of Vermont, as well as the whole country, it is the duty of our Senators and Representatives in Congress to use their influence against the consummation of any treaty relating to reciprocity in trade with the Dominion of Canada; and to insist that the subject of trade and commercial intercourse with Canada, as well as with all other foreign countries, is not a proper matter of treaty stipulation, but belongs to Congress, and should be wisely regulated by judicious legislation.

Resolred, That, in common with the Canadian people, we earnestly desire and hope for the early completion of the ship-canal connecting the waters of the Saint Lawrence and Hudson Rivers with Lake Champlain, as forming an important line of communication between the great cities on the Atlantic seaboard and the grain and lumber regions of Canada and the Northwest, and in this work we invite the co-operation respectively of the Governments of the Dominion of Canada and the United States.

Resolved, that the governor of this State be and is hereby requested to transmit a copy of these joint resolutions to each of our Senators and Representatives in Congress; also a copy each to the President of the United States and the Governor-General of the Dominion of Canada.

President of the Senate. H. HENRY POWERS, Speaker of House of Representatives.
