Surrender of tbe Murderer - Coroner'* Inquest Held The Summit Times of yesterday confirms om report of tlie murder committed in that tmvn liv young Hurst. The Time-, says: on Monday the sixth, just about 1P.M., our town was the scene of another bloody tragedy, resulting in the speedy death <d Major Oskar V on I uruhe, at the hands of: Mr. II 1\ Hurst. Major H,u nite was a Pi ttssiau b,v birth, had been a lirst lieuteu ant in the Prussian army and a major in tlie ?*Vi v'iobn 'l' : '| ,C >in u y 7„ ,Le R V"f of (i "" etui r itzhugh Lee. He followed the avocu tion of gardener in this vicinity, having lieeu f'"f some time in charge of Mr. Cunning* ham s nursery near this place. During the nuMh- T/iiV- r*' 11 1** ' 1,< | t '""' 1 ," p r '. ^ergii'of, amt Mr. Hurst. Major l uruhe tons an active part as a friend of Dr. Ferguson, and since that difficulty lie lias been engaged, m con ucction with \\ iliiatii 11. (rarlainl. Jr., in starting a vineyard and nursery wiliiir. a sliort distance of this town. He hail the reputariou Mil being a seientitie liortieultur ist. well educated, and quite eliivalrie. gen tleiuanly and liigh-toned in liis hearing, thougli iieri.aps rather Quixoti in iiis no tions ef ehivalrv. z\u inquest was held before Justice Henmie, ex-otiicio Coroner. Tlie jurors were J. X. Atkinson, E. Cain, C. II. Lyster. C. licit.man, G. Huuziker, W. F. Julius. Witnesses—Major L. J. Korniiiuet. Dr. W. Huffman. 11. Levy. Dr. T. J. Sjiurioek, Ia vy Magraw, Edward Sillily. John C. Herhens. Dr. Ive MeGeliee was also sworn as examining jiiiysieian. Thi testimony ol' Major Kornicnet was that on Monday, j.ist before the arrival of the ears front New Orleans, he crossed over to Mr. McKenzie's and asked John for some cracker*) and cheese; John said he had no crackers; on his return to the store of Enos A: Co. he stopped and talked with deceased about the place he, witness, owned, aud expressed a wish that he had taken it for a nursery; while conversing, Mr. Hurst cauie u)). aud addressing the deceased, said: "Are you the man that threatened to shoot me He was replied to, "No;" "do you know me J" "I do not;'' "are yen aimed !'' said Hurst. "I am not." replied deceased; "I be lie ve you are armed. - 'said Hurst; "I am not but will give any satisfaction a. gentleman requires," replied deceased. Hurst then drew a pistol, the parties not being live feet apart, witness staudiug immediately along side of the deceased, when Huts; tired one shot direct, the second at about the same direction, and the third when tlie deceased had fallen, aud shot him through the tent* pie. The examination of Major Forniquet was continued, as follows: Question. Did Mr. ITirut use violent lalignag distance was Hues attempt to Use A. No. from de ceased when he fired t he last shot ill the temple ! A. Decease *\ ;t ml myself were staiiilil! g together; tie. icasi i d fell obliquely at the s ■eeotttl lire; Hut • t lvaneeil after <le ceased fell, and tired the last shot in the Temple at a distance of ah out lour or five feet: I proclaimed the act publicly ami- dis tini-tly as a cool and tit •libe rate murder. Tlie testimony of Dr. J. Hotl'mun follows: Before Tin- shooting took place I was standing in-tween Hiller A. Co.'s ami McKenzie's; my attention inttl iteeu called to a probable difficulty between Mr. l'riuii Hurst uitd deceased; when I came out on the gallery, deceased and Mr. llurst were standing within about eighteen incites of each other; could not understand the language exchanged between them; after having talked for a minute or two I saw Mr. Hurst step hack and place his hand in this position (behind his hack); 1 remarked to some bystanders that Hurst was going to shoot; Air. Hurst had some kind of a stick in his left hand; after stepping hack he (Hurst) struck deceased across the left cheek with the stick, with his right (in po sition;; Hurst then immediately pulled out a. pistol and tired three shots in rapid suc cession; 1 saw deceased fall; at the time of the third shot deceased was staggering to the right of the door of Mr. Tushuer's saloon, and fell immediately; think deceased was killed before the third shot; witness states as his belief that the first shut took ett'ect in the abdomen, second at or near tlie heart, and third in the tenqile, us found on deceased when examined; the distance of the parties from each other was not more than four or live feet at either shot, at the third shot Hurst advanced a step or two. B. Levy testified thus: After train time I saw Mr. Bri llurst standing near Tushner's saloon, talking to a person unknown to me; soon al ter 1 heard three shots; saw. a man fall; ran to the place where the shooting took place; saw l'ri Hurst walk otf across the street with a pistol in his hand; came iijt and saw deceased breathing; know de ceased personally; this occurred ia.Summit, l'ike county. Mississippi, about one o'clock. March fi, 1871. Dr. Ivi G. L. McGehee's testimony fol lows : Being* called upon to examine the body of Oskar 1'nruhe, he found him stricken with three gun or pistol shots, one entering the lower portion and near the central line of the abdomen, three or four inches above the pubis or front bone: another entered the left side below the nipple, and internal thereto, and lodged under the skin behind, two or three inches from the spine; auoth entered the leftclieek, opposite the eye, aud passed out on the right temple, near the por tion or external portion of the right eyebrow, which shots, in my opinion, caused has death. Levi McGraw testified : Heard two fires, and run toward the sound: as I turned the corner at Quinn's drug store heard third and last, shot, and saw the man falling; saw Major Forniquet pursue Mr. Bri Hurst, and heard him (Forniquet) denounce him (Hurst) as hav ing committed a willful murder; Mr. Hurst squared himself in front of Mr. Forniquet with a pistol in his right hand; heard Mr. Forniquet say "shoot aud he damned; you are a willful murderer." Tito testimony of Seaborn W. Jones, was as follows; Knows very little of the case; was sitting at lity door on Robb street; heard tjrst shot; saw a inan backing from some one and about that time a second shot was fired, and either from intuition or force of shot the man shot wheeled around with both hands thrown out; don't know whether he was falling or turned around voluntarily; after that saw 1 saw Bri Hurst for the lirst time present the pistol and tire. Deceased at last fire, seemed to bounce from the floor and fall; Mr. Hurst then turned and walked off. E. Tushner's testimony follows: Mr. Uu ruhue came in my saloon in Summit,. Pike county, Mississippi, a little belore one o'clock this day, March fi, 1871, drank a glass of wine aud bought three cigars; afterward be walked out, while I was still behind the. counter; I then walked out and saw standing before my ealotm Bri Hurst, and Major Forniquet standing by deceased; stepped back a little and heard the follow ing questidk hy Hurst; "Do you wjint to shoot me!" Deceased answered "No, I have no weapons,'"pointing to his pockets; Hurst stepped hack, pulled out his pistol and shot Inin three times. The verdict of the Coroner's jury was that, upon the evidence before them, Oskar Unruhe, deceased, came to his death by pis tol shots from the hands of Priuli Hurst. Wednesday morning, as we learn from the Summit Times, Hurst gave himself up to the Sheriff, who wss in town, and requsted » speedy investigation of the killing. The examination of witnesses was begun Wednea • v day, liefore Mayor H. M. Quin. The trial ! will probably consume several days. Judge J XV. 1'. Harris, of Jackson, has been retained j to conduct the defense, j We do not know young Hurst, the mur j <h'rer, hor any of his relatives, and, there f'»re. have no prejudice in expressing the i hone that "a'cool and deliberate murder," ;ts Major Forniquet, who saw the whole V. *, • , proclaimed the aet, should not i fl<> unpunished. No influence of family or ■ social position should shield a murderer 'Vro.n the severest penalties of the law. It 1 . .. . . , 1 . ,,, . ! w tmi '' tllllt lawlessness should be repressed 1 in Summit and in other portions ol' the j Smith, and that men should cease to lie gov [ ( , nu ,,i hy the delusion that they can defy i , J J human and div.Riflaws with utter impunity.

As the Stars intend taking a Northwest ern tour this summer, playing games at St. Ixtuis, Cincinnati, Louisville and Chicago, it. will have to he a crack nine, either ama teur or professional, that will win a hall from the boys of tin Crescent City. About tlie nineteenth of this month we u ill have a visit from the great "White Stockings," of Chicago, who fly the "whip pennant - , of the North and West, aud when they play the Stars an extraordinary good game may he expected. Aendeiny ®i .Music. The return of tlieGaiete Comiquo Groupe ef Specialties, with new aud most attrac tive additions, lias made the opening of their third engagement this Reason at tlie Academy most flattering to all concerned. Brilliant audiences can not he secured to flli a place ol amusement night after night, unless there is something to draw them there—some attraction that is irresistible. Tiie company now performing at the Academy possesses the power of attraction in an eminent degree. The great variety of amusements it offers, together with a splen did array of talented artists who perform in comedy, melo drama, farce, opera, bur lesque, minstrelsy, vocal music, dancing, etc., complete a stock of attraction sufficient to satisfy every taste for entertainment. The old favorites have all returned. Miss Jennie Engel sings as sweetly as ever, and Billy Carter has lost none of his popularity. Miss Minnie Jackson, Mile. Rosa. Ada Bushel!, Mile. Elise. Milo, l'lar.dowski, and M isscs Ophelia and Murray have lost none of their lustre and shine in tlu-ir particular sphere with virgin brilliancy. Sheridan and Maek are really a lively pair. Their "characters'' are strongly drawn, and given with a rapidity in change that surpasses anything we have heretofore seen in their line. Then there is XV. B. Cavanagh. Fete Lee and Sam Collins, who may bo ranked as good in their particular lines. But the strongest feature, by all odds, in this troupe, at this time is the great exhi bition of strength made by Monsieur D'Atalie and Mile. Angela. Among the herculean feats thut are performed by this wonderful man ami wonderful woman may be mentioned some that, are thrilling be cause they ure daring. M. D'Atalie, with his teeth firmly clenched to a rope, and Lis child, Zeplij r, standing upon his breast, suffers liimsell to be hoisted from the parquette to the dome of the theatre, where the child fires ofi a pistol and waves two small flags one in eaeh hand, amid the applause and astonish ment of all who witness the d.trihg act. He hangs by tiio strength of his jaws alone until he is hoisted to a fearful height, and femains in that, condition until the child goes through with his part of the perform ance, aud then they are lowered by the same power that raised them, and take posi tion upon the stage. Mens. D'Atalie also shows the powerful strength of his jaw s by seizing hold of a barrel, containing forty gallons of water, with his teeth, aud raising it from the stage, holding it in that way until a young man straddles it. Mile. Angela ul-o exhibits feats of great strength. She receives a 'loaned cannon tlmt weighs six hundred pounds across her shoulders, walks erect across the stage, when little iLephyr mounts the cannon, and standing erect, fires it off'. • Mile. Angela and Mens. D'Atalie are pos sessed of most extraordinary strength, and have net failed to create a sensation wher ever they have appeari d. Stationery. —By reference to a notice in another column, it will be seen that Messrs. Henry Uinck and F. J. Kuliuliolz, both long and favorably known practical printers and book-binders, have formed a copartnership for carrying on a general stationery, print ing and book-binding business. They arc located at No. 117 Common street, nearly opposite tlje Louisiana National Bank, where they are daily receiving from the North now and excellent additions to their already full assortmeut of everythiug in the stationery line. Their facilities for manu facturing blank books can not be equaled in the city. They are both gentlemen of correct and popular business habits, and can not but do a large share ol the sta tionery, job printing and hook binding business of this State and the surrounding country. They will also keep on hand, for the benefit ol their •customers, internal revenue stamps. Success to the new firm. The.latest dissipation of Victor Emanuel is said to be ten-pins, to which he ia much devoted. He enjoys the game, for he be lieves it postpones the approach of apo plexy, with which he is now threatened. It is considered certain that General Stoughton, of Michigan, will be chairman of the Home Committee on Military Affairs. j Fnnernl of the Late F. W. Perkins. Captain F. XV. Perkins was buried yes Urday afternoon with Masonic honors. The funeral was appointed for half-past two o'clock, and some time previous to that hour a large number of tl.e friends of the deceased had already assembled at the resilience, on Chestnut, near .Sixth street. The reception room was filled with ladies, and in the centre of the front room the mortal remains lay coffined and pre pared lor speedy removal to their last resting place. Groups of men, friends of the deceased, stood silently around, await ing the time to take part in the last offices of friendship that could he rendered to their departed com panion, so suddenly cut oil' in early prime, ami gone to test the realities of the here after. While the preparations were draw ing near completion, friend after friend went forward to take the last look. Sliort as had been the passage from healthy and active life to tlie pussiveness of death, the face of the deceased looked as if lie bad passed through months of exhausting sick ness. It might lie that the bitterest hour had been a concentration ol the suffering that in ordinary eases spreads over weeks and months. A little before tlirite o'clock the Masonic fraternity of Linnwood Lodge No. I(i7, of which Captain l'erkins hail been a member, arrived. They were accompanied hy tlie Masonic order of Knights Templars of < ,'r hians Commandery No. 3. Concord Chapter No. 'J was also represented. The brother hood ol. Linnwood Lodge were in funeral regalia, and the Knights Templars in com plete official panoply. Die needful preparations had all been made, amid the deepest silence, and then the Reverend Myron Reed read the solemn and pathetic service for the dead. Tlie lirst part of the Masonic funeral ser-. vice was then read hy Past R. W. Master* George Baldey, who acted as Master of Linwood Lodge, in the absence ol" R. XV. Master C. A. Scott; the responses being made hy Bast R. XV. Master William Me Duff, and Junior Warden E. E. Adams. Rev ; Mr. Reed then made a brief address of surpassing eloquence. He spoke of the solemn occasion as a teaching and a warn ing of the uncertainty of huiuau affairs, and the necessity of applying tbe heart to wisdom. As his discourse proceeded, his hearers were deeply affected, for the elo quent words of the pastor were brought home by the sight that lay before them. Tlie discourse ended hy earnest prayer to the Father of the fatherless, to protect the desolate wile and the orphan children. The solemn service terminated hy the singing of the sublime hymn, "Come, Ye Disconsolate." The funeral cortege was now formed, Linwood Lodge taking the lead, followed hy Concord Conclave aud other memlters of the Masonic order present. The hearse, which followed, was escorted hy Orleans Commandery No. 3. Knight's Templars, under command of B. E. Commander W. R. Whitaker. Then followed a long array of carriages, containing the relatives and friends of the dead.' The burial was to be in the Girod street cemetery. When the long procession reached the cemetery, the coffin was deposited in its last resting place and a prayer was again offered hy Mr. Reed. The concluding pan of the Masonic funeral service was per formed by Past R. W. Master George Bal dey, closing with tlie open Masonic sign and the accompanying words, "The will of God is accomplished; so mote it be." The hene i diction was given by Mr. Reed, and nothing remained hut to shnt out forever the mortal remains ot the frieud ana companion of past days. The brotherhood stood silently and tearfully around, as little hy little the coffin disappeared trom view, and when all was hidden forever from sight, they sadly turned away. The Pullmnn Pnlace Cnr Yesterday morning, about eight o'clock, there was a considerable assemblage of people at tl.e station of the Chattanooga railroad, near the foot of Canal street, to witness the departure of the first sleeping j car that has ever yet been put upon the New Orleans, Mobile and Chattanooga railroad. Tlie "Pullman drawing-room and sleeping ear" seems to be a compendium, crowded into a very brief space, of everything com fortable or luxurious in traveling, and the "Arabian," which started yesterday morn ing, is certainly a model specimen. Tlie car is divided into twelve sections, in each ot which lour persons can he accommodated. In addition to this there is a drawing-room which, when engaged by a traveling party .or family, can he made entirely pri vate. as well as tlie sections at one eml of the car can he converted into a retiring room exclusively for ladies, with every accommodation and comfort. At the other end is an apartment appro priated for gentlemen only. The ear is heated in cold weather by pipes, and lighted thoroughly at night by a costly but complete apparatus. There is a double Moor, the space between the two being filled with saw-dust to deaden the sound made hy the train. In short, nothing lias been unthought of, and the elegance of the fittings equal the comfort. The cars are. put on the track at a cost of $:X>,000 each. The Associated Press dispatches arc com paratively meagre this morning, but they are quite interesting. The last of the dis patches were received in our office at live minutes past eleven o'clock last night, some two or three hotifs earlier than usual. When there is nothing of extraordinary in terest occurring, the Associated Press agents are unable, of course, to send news, and our readers desire nothing but informa tion in these dispatches.
