BATON ROUGE, MAY 17. 1881.
HIGHLY COMPLIMENTED.
A Beautiful Watch and Chain Pre
sented to Mayor Jastremski, by
his Friends and Fellow.
Cltizens.
The editor of the CArrITOLIA hay
ing been the highly-honored recipient
of the beautiful testihmonial, our read
ers will readily perceive the reasons
which p1rompt us to present the re
port published by our confrere of the
Advocate, in lieu of (one originating
in this office.
Speaking of the occasion, which we
will ever bear in grateful remem
brance, our contemporary says:
"We were present at a very pleasant
reunion on Saturday evening. The
friends and admirers of Gen. Leon
Jastremaki, our confrere of the CAPI
TOuIAX, considering that some public
testimonial was due him for his ef
forts in securing the restoration of
= the Capitol to. Baton Rouge, quietly
united in the purchase of an elegant
watch and chain, and bidding him to
be present to attend the expression of
'ome views of his constituents, they
quietly assembled in the Billiard
Saloon of the Sumrter House. Gen.
A. .. llerron was made President and
the organ of the company, in express
ing the feelings, which had prompted
the donation. The General was led
in,' when Gen IHerron in some eloquent
ent remarks, told him, that admiring
the exhibitiolns of civic virtue, dis
played by him in the administration
of responsible public trusts, and espe
cially in promoting the return of the
Capitol to its olden and rightful seat,
by vigilance and activity as Mayor,
Member of the Constitutional Conven
tion and Editor, his friends in order
to testitfy their appreciation of his
zeal, and to illustrate the disposition
of the people of Baton Rouge to al)
4)laud faithful services by their pub
lic agents, had united in the testimo
nial, which Gen. IIerron handed him.
Gen. Jastremski replied in a few well
chosen remarks, when 3Ir. Wieck in
vited the guests to a hearty collation.
The com lany, after finishing a sub
stantial repast, were then seated
around the hoard, when toasts were
proposed, and the utmost hilarity and
good feeling prevailed.
"The Advocate was kindly remem
bered in a hearty and hospitable
welcome. The watch was bought
from John Johnson, jeweler, where
in view ofthenatural curiosity among
the General's friends to see it, the
donors have left it for a few days.
"The case is of the style Louis XIV,
beautifully engraved. On one side,
the State House is engraved, and on
the other the Monogram L. J. It is
of the Waltham make, costing $300.
On the inside of the case is this in
acription: "Presented to Gen. Leon
Jastremski by his friends, for his ar
diluous andtl zealous efforts in the res
torationof the State Capitol to Baton
Rouge, May 14th, I86i."

PLATTs
A special telegram, from our New E
Orleans correspondent "Dragoon,"l
contains the startling news that -the
two New York Senators, Conkling
and Platt, have resigned their seats
in the United States Senate.
It is evident that some, serious
breach has opened in the ranks of the  
Republican party, by the refusal of a
the President to submit to the arro- T
gant dictation of the Senators from
New York.
What the consequences of this ex- -
traordinary act will be, no one can ,
well conjecture just now.
It'is fair to presume, though, that
the days of stalwart Republicanism
are over, and that the government of I
this country is to be again guided by
the old constitutional methods and
practices. di
The attempt to break up the Re ti
public erected by its founders, by sub- u
stituting thereto a centralized gov
ernment, is surely a failure, and while
the Democratic party, proper, has
not succeeded as yet, in obtaining -
the reins of power, it has won the
fight so far as re-establishing the sov
ereignty of its time-honoredand nev
er-to-be-relinquished principles.
We will await, with deep interest,
the arrival of further news in cen
nection with an event which must
mark an important epoch in the his
tory of the country.
