Mr. Burnett, of Kentucky, declared that the President has exercised powers that would have deprived any despot in Europe of his crown, if he had dared to do it. As one of the representatives of Kentucky, he protested against that State being called upon to furnish one man or one dollar of money to carry on the war.

A large part of the population of Louisiana were foreigners — persons born in Europe who had never been naturalized in the United States, and who still owed allegiance to, and were entitled to the protection of the governments under which they had been born. This class in particular, by the aid of the consuls and agents of their respective governments, had given a great deal of trouble, not only at New Orleans and in Louisiana, to General Butler and the authorities there, but numbers of claims which had been passed upon in one way and another in Louisiana went on appeal to
