Until now, In France, liberty baa only been ephemeral; It has not been able to take mot in the soil, because abuse baa immediately followed itM usage, and the nation Has preferred limiting the ex erciao of Its rights to submitting to disorder in idaaa as in ibioga. It ia worthy of you and of me to make a larger application of those great principles which sra the glory of France; and their development will not com promise, as formerly, the necessary prestige of authori ay. Tha government Is at present founded; and aidant passions?-the only obstacles to the expansion of our lib erties?will be extinguished in the immensity of uni versal suffrage. I have full confidence in the good sense and patriotism of the people and strong In my ?Igbt, which I hold from them?strong in my coo aeience, which only desires good, I invite you to ad vance with me with an assured step in the path of civili sation. (I?ud and long-continued acclamation*.) When the applause had subsided the Grand Master of the Ceremonies, having taken the orders of bis Majesty, intimated to M. Roulier, Minister of State, that the oatli was to be administered to such Senators and members of the Legislative Body as had been nominated since the last session. That act having Men gone through, the honorable Minister declared that the session of 1867 was span, and be reuses led the members or tha two Cham bers to amenable next day in their respective places of Billing Tor the despatch of business.

It took ysara ef hard lighting and a length of time to convince the people of tne State that the negro is a man?"a higher title than president or king"?and note chattel. Events of a practical nature will speedily follow which will make assurance doubly sure on this subject. When the negro shell, under Sherman's recon struction bill, vote; when he shall sit in the councils of ths Stats, then indeed will there be none to dispute the foot that the black man it a man and Ihas all tbe attri butes of a man about him. Tne negro has been quicker to divine the greet change that was coming to hit condition than the white man hat bean of the same fact. Indeed the negro has been Impatient of tbe long delay in the full realization of all his rights, and will vote with a gusto that he only kuows bow to exhibit. " if the' " But what or the white populationf They can only Rich at tbo degeneracy of the times' The delay in conferring on the negro the right to take part in forming the con stitution under which be is to live end in making the laws by which be is to he governed, nee b-eti eminently beneficial; for be has had the more time in preparing himself for the exercise of mi important a right, and it has gradually prepared the white mkn for conceding the right. This being done tbe two ra~es uiay be fairly left to themselves?tbe negro having tbe training to labor, and tbe white man possessing the little there w, in value, of the lands. The condition of tbe Slate body politio is so healthy, tbe encouragements to labor are ho great, and above all the necessity for work of some >ort is so pressing, that the shock will not be no groat in the change that has been ordained .by tbe people of the country. Now if only contidence can be restored be tween the two sections prosperity will <-ome as Hie glori ous spring lias already hurst upon this land Things could not be worss hare than they have been Coder the fear of political troubles the stream of capital which should have been flowing -outh has been reversed, and instead of permeating every noon and cranny ef the body politic with its vivifying influences has flowed back to the centres, no more to circulate until coniidence, tout word of magic import in commercial circles, shall ba re stored. May that time soon come and our country be once more united, happy and prosperous I To go to the cities or iuto the country oue sees evidence of labor among all claaaea Every day the nntnher of drones is lessening. Tbe slap of the laborer is brisk and cheer fulness steals upon the countenance of both tbe employer aud the laborer. The wat -hword is labor. At the lirst of the year I was disposed to take a gloomy view of the cotton prospect; now. X am forced to concede a laws crop of cotton. It is rarely said now that ths negro will not work; ofioner you hear that he wor^s a? well as ever, and sometimes you hear it said that lie works better than ever. The strongest and lO'ei convincing argument I have ever beard in tin or of ireo over slave labor, aven at the North, was vacantly inula by a gentleman in one of the low counties o> tlie Hi ate, who bad had some forty ne groes emancipated. II- would not, he said, alter the condition of tbo negro*- were it lu his' power. Thus does experience overthrow th-jory; thin does run* iencs come to the asset iou of right. Vlitis U may not ituve been considered wrong to continue in a slate of slavery persons lound in that state, the conscience of the South would revolt, at putting a tree people into u atato of bondage. 1 wait fcr'her comment' on the !!? construc tion bill until It shall lie better understood than It Is possible to under'tand it from lite telegraphic accounts we have had or it.

The result of that eaumeration la contained la the report of the Superintendent, herewith submitted. This enumeration include* house* of prosti tution and assignation, publicly known to be such, and of public prostltntoo who follow their vocation without disguising it undor pratenc ? of other employment. It la not assumed that thorn is aot a greater number of houses or apartments used wholly aa place, of prosti tution, nor that there is not a greater number of lewd women who whollv or partly subsist by prostitution than i* shown by the superintendent's report. On the con trary it is believed that tbo figure* of tbis enumeration do not oxhiblt the full extent of the evil. It is impos sible to *lale with precise accuracy the number or l.-wd women in the city of Now York, inrludlog thorp wbo reside in Brooklyn. Jersey City, Hobokeu and other adjacent towns, but resort to Now York to follow I heir vocation. That the nnmber is considerably greater than that slated In the report of the Superintendent Is certain, but bow much greater this Board have no moaus or de termining. The rcpori of the Metropolitan Board of Health, lately transmitted to the Aaeembly. exhibits an appalling pic ture of the Sanitary evlla intllried upon society bv pros titutes and places of prostitution. The aril eflerts of prostitution aud the evil influences of prostitutes and places or prostitution extend much furtnor, and afflict society In ita aoclal, political, moral and business rela i.ODU. Intimacy with prostitutes Is in numerous in stances tbo Urst step In s career of debauchery and dissi pation, which lead to drunken nets, gambling, inattention to business, lavish oxpendlinre, frauds, forgeries, robbo. rle* and homicides. The results of s career of prostitu tion In too many Instance* are an Impaired health, cor rupted morals, depraved habits, ruined reputation, the pr son and ignominious death. Tbo existing criininaf laws authorise tbo indictment, conviction and criminal punishment of kee|>era of bouses of prostitution and the arrest and punishment of public prostitutes as disorderly persons Though prostitutes and the keepers of bawdy house* are numerous, the evils resulting to society from their influence and prac tice are confessedly degrading and truly alarming. The convictions and punishments of these offenders against law and public di-cncy are comparatively few. and do not seem to linvo any observable iufluonce in siippre-a ing the eril. I nder such circumstances it canuol be pretended that further or more effective measure* <>i legal restraint are not required by the highest ptiblic consideration. 11 may not he possible to suppress, entirely, the pr.. - lice of prostitution uud eradicate its evil offe-ts- but stringent laws, honestly and fearlessly enforced by the cuur r, jorcis sod police, w ith the encouraging support of public opinion, would probably greatly circuit)<erlbc and raitlga'aiho er.t The evils of prostitution arc not visited upon the eulliy parties only.
