The Louisiana Institute for the Deaf,
the Dumb, and the Blind.
We understand that the Board of Adminis
tration of ths .Louisiana Institute for the
Deaf, and Dumb and the Blind, have pur
purchascd the wpiare of ground, upon which
the Baton Rouge College buildings aro sit
uated. and the next three squares adjoining
the same on the East. It is the purpose of
the Hoard to opr.n the institution at an
earlv day, and with that view they have
opened a correspondence with a gentleman
who has for many years lieen successfully
engaged in the supreintendence of Institu
tions of this kind, and whose services they
exjiect to obtain The College buildings
will be teinporarally used, until suitable
buildings can lie erected.
Mechanic* and Manufacturers
Our neighbors, ir. the surrounding towns,
and along the coast of the Mississippi, are
not aware ol the fact that nny kind of work
in the mechanic branches, can be done in
this city, in the very best manner, at short
notice—and low prices. Within the past
year many sho|is have sprung into exis
tence that are daily manufacturing every
article necessary for agricultural, or eom
merse—for utility, ease, or elegance.
We k now (hat Planters and dealers gen
erally, only want to be satisfied of the fact
that they can purchase articles manufactur
ed here, as cheap as the same articles can
be brought from other places, to patronize
home industry.
What operates ma te rial I y against manu
facturers in the (South, is the mania that
every now and thep .comes over our people
for "cheap things. 1 ' "Cheap goods" is the
cry. "Give us cheap household wares—
cheap waggons, carts and carrages, cheap
clothes. cheap lite ra.ture and cheap laws."
I Iiis cry proceeds from sudden commercial
panics, which is the result of an unstable
money market—from falling to the
Tiiclalic basis, from inflated paper curren
< les. These panics must inevitably come
now and then, but they can be guarded
against by the people It is this that un
fixes the value of things, acting prejudicially
to trade both ways. 'Tis this that sends
up a cry every now and then for 'cheap
things' and they come forth from every
machine shop, rattled together iri such a
manner that they will scarcely bear the
wind to blow at them. Purchasers should
take into consideration the manner in which
work is done, and every man should be a
judge of the character <*f work and not be
deceived with the tinsel glitter that every
thing wears that comes upon us from Yan
kee land.
Those people have no reputation to loose
here, whereas our own mechanics have.—
We do not contend that we can (as long as
we have " peculiar inititutumi") manufac
ture lor other markets all we aspire to do
is to satisfy our own ; and this can be done
by encouraging our workmen. We address
ourselves now, not to the bloated nabob
who believes nothing good, that has not
a foreign savor—anil who sends his shirts
abroad to be washed because of the miser
able quality of home starch : we are not
talking to these people, we address oursel
ves to the frugal and the industlious, and
prosperuh and happy population of the tran
cesdently great and enlightened Pelican
State of Louisiana.
Baton Rouge is admirably situated to be
come a large manufacturing city We are
high and dry from inundation of the Miss
issippi—in a mild and salubrious latitude—
and have a stream at our feet large enough
long enough, deep enough and everlasting
enough, to float the commerce ol .ill nations
lor all time
At this present writing we have in
dally operation, two steam brick, machines
(McMain k Co.,)-turning out fifty thou
sand* brick per day One steam foundry
(Hill fc Henderson) that has manufactured
several steam engines, and saw-mills com
plete and of the most perfect workmanship.
This establishment is prepnired to do the
very largest castings.
Two stenm saw-mills within the corpor
ation (F. Arbour & Delarodeier) always at
work and do not moie that half supply the
demand. One steam plaining machine (J
Brown) ulways nt work In the house
furnishing way we will put J. Piper's es
tablishment against the world, and we
have workmen here in every blanch of the
mechanic arts, that cannot be surpassed —
We want our lountry'friends to wake up
to these facta, and send in their orders.
It would be wrong to close this article
without speaking of ourselves. Thero is
nine sterling literary and political papers
in this place, vii : The Vin-a- Vin ami tie
Gazette is two, and the Vin-a- Vi n and the
Mvoraie 'u four, and the Vin-a- Vii ami the
Camrl is six, and the Vin-a- Vin , and the
Cajntvluin Vm-a- Vin ir eight —where in the
ninth ' Well we will set the Vii-a-Vin down
for the odd number. We would like for
nine more paper* to be found anywheie
this side ol Uranus, to compare with these
in wit—pith—jioint—or puits of beauty ;
if any of our editorial compeers w ill drum
them np we will never brag more.
France.— Movement for the rr-r*
tablishmcnt of the Umpire. —The
Pari« correspondent of the Nationid
Inlilligencer in Iiis letter of the i!2>d
Tilt. , says.
"The most stirkin# fart in French
politic* at the prevent moment is the
pouring into Paris from the three hun
dred and Hixty-lhroe arrondiscments
into ¥?hk h the eighty-six departments
of France are divided of resolutions in
favor of I he re-establishment of the
hereditary empire. Fach arrondise
inent lias its council the members of
which are elected by the people and
charged with various local administra
tive concerns having no connexion with
politics. Theso councils have ju. t ken
renewed by universal suffrage applied
under the présure of completely organi
zed and irresistible executive influence.
The result of course was tho icturii in
almost every instance of Government
candidates devoted to partisan* of the
Empire. * * *
The eighty-six < «encrai Councils the
principal popular assemblies of the de
partments are goon to meet. We shall
doubtless see them aheying tho same
impulses and inspiration passing with
even more eclat and authority resolu
tion of the same sort. The J'rincc has
just been using his appointing power
by placing at the head of all these holl
ies men devoted to himself after having
secured by executive pressure on the
popular elections large majorities of his
iiartizans in the bodies themselves.—
n the mean time petitions under Gov
ernment patronage are circulating a
moug the people of every commune of
France to the same end-the Empire
These are collecting in overwhelming
quantities in the bureau of the Minister
of the interior. By and by the supple
Senat« with the composition of which
you are acquanted will be convoked.
It will proceed to declare the demon
stration of the will of the people to be
foo plain to be mistaken, too decidcd to
be resisted. A Senat us-Con.su/cum
will declare the expediency the neces
sity of the Empire. The Prince dear
self-sacrificing man will yield to their
petition and will submit to universal
sufferage a plebiscitum conccivcd in
about these terms :
Tho French people wills the re es
tablishment of the Empire founded by
Napoloon 1 and confcrs upon tin
Prince Louis Napoleon hereditary hon
or with the title of Emperor.
The people will asiu December last
be called upon to vote on the above yes
or no and he may count with certainty
upon majority as strong as that of the
20th of I>eccmber.
That was a very definite prescription
which orieold woman on Long Island gave
to another, respecting the mode of ascertain
ing whether Indigo was good or not: "You
see, Miss Hopkins, you must take the lumps,
and pound 'em up, e'n a'most to a powder,
and then spnnke the powder on the top of
a [ian of water ; and if the indigo is good,
it'll 'ither sink or «'.vim, and I don't know
which !"'
M b . R obb . —Tbe numerous friend*
of this gentleman have teen alarmed
by aotuc idle rumor Iba* b« was in s
dangerous state and not expected to
recover. We take great pleasure in
removing all such apprehension* upon
tho strength of a telegraphic dispatch
dated New fork on Saturday last from
a particular friend of Mr. Robb who
state* that bis health was greatly im
proved and that he was momacutarily
expected in New York —Delta.
T he R ook C oncern .—The follow
i ng extract from oue of the New York
letters of un exchange pap'T accounts
for the delay in adjusting t'i» auewtiou
of dividing the Methodist Book Con
cern situated in Now York
Tho long pending difficulty b' t ween
the Methodist Churches North and
South in respect to the mammoth book
concern in this city has not yet been
finally disposed of, although the princi
ple involved way decided by tho U. S.
Circuit Court in favor of tlie Church
Soul Ii— and tho Church North Las de
termined not lo appeal. The cause of
the delay is said to bo tho confused
:-'ute of the accounts of their conccrn
v,inch tho most skillful book-keepers
find difficult to uniavi 1 and until these
accounts arc straightened out it will be
impossible to ascertain the value of the
concern. The fact ii the Book Con
cern has bean in the hand* of the most
stt'pi'l and incompetent men that could
have been culled from tbe whole lield
of the Methodist denomination. They
may have been abundantly blessed
with piety but they have not had the
least modicum of business tact and have
gone on heaping blunder upon blunder
until the financial department is in
almost inextricable confusion. T!;i best
nay to Mittle tho matter would be to
sell out tho whole concern to the high
est bidder and to divido the proceeds.
