The Legislature—Message of Governor

ATLANTA. January 15.—The Senate and

Of Governor Bullock was read. He corn . -
' mences by announcing that on the seventh
of December he addressed a• cotnmunica

state that the remarkable action of the
Legislature, at its last session, had induced
a careful examination of the law and the

it was possible -uch extraordinary results
could occur. He argues that a strict adher
ence to the letter of the reconstruction acts
would' Wive prevented the overthrow of
them, which has been accomplished by
Georgia. Congress, he says, is the sole
interpreter of the true intent and meaning
of the reconstruction measures; and the
NtiLial arbiter on the question of their exe
In the body of the message the following
occurs: "The fact that there is in Georgia
no adequate protection for life and proper
ty and free expression of political opinion,
is so well known and understood as not to
need argument or presentation of the evi
dence which 'has reached me from many
portions.of the State. In fact, it is hoped
that it May never become necessary to
make public information which would re
flect upon us as a people," He says Con
gress will undoubtedly regard the
expelling of colored members by the
Legislature as revolutionary, overthrow
tile government instituted by such acts,
and will take into its own hands the ad
justment of the difficulty, unless some ef
fective measures are at once adopted to
repair the injury. It is not Oesired that
treason should be punished, but it is de
manded that loyalty shall be respected,
and,, if necessary, protected. The Governor
reeminnends the General Assembly to take
the initiative for the settlement, by exclud
ing members ineligible under the Four
teenth Amendinent and restoring colored
tneuMers' to their seats, and in case it is
not 'deemed wise to take this course,
then to adjourn and leave the matter to
