" CAPITAL BONDS ALL TAKEN I"
The opponents of the removal of
the Capital to Baton Rouge had cen-,
tored their remaining hopes upon thll

pledge that our representatives in the

them and the City Council to make
to the State, that a contribution of
thirty-five thousand dollars would be

this doubt manifested to such an ex

to demand the deposit of this
amount before the appropriation bills
had been passed.
Boldly did our representatives re
new the pledge that Baton Rouge
would be ready before the signature
of tho contracts, in accordance with
tile stipulations of the constitution.
As a last thrust the General Assem
bly ordained that no warrants should
be drawn until this city had made
good its promise.
And now Four Words, brought by
electricity, announce tihe fact that in
eight days the Capitol Committee
have raised the thirty-five thousand
dollars required to conlirmn our title
to tile possession of the Capital of
the State of Louisiana I

"''pound of lesih" was obtained, the
people of Baton Rouge and of the
State will ever be indebted for the
successful result that has been reached.
Our community ought to be proud
of its great victory, and of the stead
fistnhess it has shown in combating
step by stelp for two years and a half,
undismayed by obstacles of every
description, against a powerful oppo
sition. It is indeetd a repetition of
the triulnplh of David over (Goliah.

may have appeared selfish, still,

While Gen. Grant has twice bee?

party, he fner voted the Repblican
ticket. He s an old-time Demoortt,
and always voted the Democratic
ticket, stArght. As the Demoorate

gracefully accept the nomination of
the Cincinnati convention on the 22d
of June, after' Ills aceptand at the'
nomination at Chlcuto, on the 2d of
We don't deny that Grant acted
with the Democracy until the tour
that he made through the North after
the close of the war, to find out which
of the two parties was likely to pos
sess the most voters.
When he became satisfied that the
hatred of the South controlled the
masses to such an extent as to
give the majority to the Radical Re
publican party, deserted the colors of
Democracy and its principles, by ac
cepting the Presidency at the hands
of its bitterest antagonists.
No sooner was he President, than
he became an executioner of the mer
ciless beohests of the Radical party.
For eight long years did he chastise
the South, by overturning its State
governments and maintaining in their
stead at the point of the bayonet, the
blighting rule of the thieving carpet
bagger and the accursed Southern
renegade. There was bloodshed, rape,
organised pillage, cowardice, shame,
degradation and wide-spread desola
tion throughout that country over
which contending hosts had carried
the inevitable horrors of one of the
most cruel wars ever recorded in the
annals of history.
Too narrow minded to extend the
blessings of peace upon .the laud,
whose gallant sons had immoralized
the name of the American soldier, by
displaying a valor that should have
commanded the respect of an honora
ble and victorious chieftain, lie, on
the contrary, threw upon the van

Thus did Grant illustrate his I)e
Inocracy, and thus did he stain his
sword and his epaulettes, and forever
disgrace the honorable career of arms.
And has it come to this, that a
southern pen can be so forgetful of
those sentiments-without which a
people are rightfully branded as un
worthy of the respect of their fellow
nmen,-as to offer such a disgraceful
proposition to the )emnoc'ratic party

a young lady to keep bouse lbrherfor,
a few days, while she went off on a
visit. The young lady accepted, and
took charge of the house. Like a
good houseteeper, .she was sitting ii
the parlor, discussing polities with a
young man, when the door sil uank
and two ladies called for the lady hat
was away; and being told that she
had gone off, started in the parlor to
rest for a few minutes, The young
man in the parlor, for reasons that he
will not make known, leaped from the
window. If he expected to escape
from the young lady, his plans were
badly frustrated; for she no sooner
saw him light safely on the ground,
than she, in thesame graceful manner,
executed the same movement; and
they wore last seen strolling among
the beautiful flowers."
Our good citizens and the friends of
Baton Rouge, on the river and else
where have responded most liberally to
the call made upon them in regard to
the Capitol Bonds. Our community
will always remember them gratefully.
Whether large or small, we know that
those subscribing have done what they
could. It will over be a proud recollec
tion that the thirty-five thousand dol
lars were raised in about eight days,
principally in this community.
Tun. JoRN W. CANNON, takes the blue
ribbon on the Mississippi river for her
liberal subscription to the Capitol loan,
Captain Mossop, her chief clerk, booked
himself for $500 and the boat fora $1,000
more. Long may the noble vessel plow
the Father of Waters, affording her pal
atial accommlodations to the throngs of
passengers whose business will call them
to the Capital, which her liberality
will have contributed to locate at Baton
We are glad to read in the Advocate
that its subscription list has be.u largely
increased in the last three weeks, "as an
evideneo of the conAdence it enjoys both
a newspaper and a Demoeratio journal."
As a newspaper we have no objections
to make, but on the score of Democracy
we feel bound to say, that such subscrib
ers must be of the flshy kind. In other
Words, the Devil's house is full of that
kind of Democ-rats.
A young lady walked into church the
otler night and sat down next to ayoung
man who had his arms extended along
the back of the bench. The young lady
did not seem to care, and looked rather
comfortable ; but the blushes that moun
ted to the young mlan's face, and his
efforts to get his arm from around her,
made him look very uncomfortable.
This is leap year, but the young ladies
should not embarrass the gentlemen in
such public places.
Those who think that it was fun to
sign 3K50 Capitol Bonds forty-one times
each, a total of 14,350 signatures for
each the Mayor, Secretary and Adminis
tor of Finance, had better try it them
selves. They've done it though, and
are rejoicimng that they've reached the
end. They now can sign their names
in a twinkle.
Mr. Win. Freret, the well known Ar
chitect appointed by Gov. Wiltz to sn
perviseo the architecture of the Capitol
in this city reached here yesterday and
returns at once to Now Orleans, where
he will set to work to draft the necessary
plans. He is an intelligent and polished
A terrible cyclone has spread de
