The author DTon BouacicucLT, Esq., with a view ol refuting the Abolition part of the charge, has dedicated the play to Gov. Moona, and hopes his Excellency will be induced to read it and satisfy himself that it is a play without favorlor disfavor. After his Excellency shall have read the produc tion we hope he will issue a pronunciamelto ordering the faithful of the South to doethe same and be convinced of the soundness of the play inasmuch as in the letter of dedica tion, Mr. B. declares himself a Democrat and a Southern Democrat at that. By the way this is one of the finest specimens of dodging to secure popularity for a play that we have ever seen-worthy the indefatigable P. T. Baarnox in his palmiest days. Naw PAPEs.- A new paper called the States Rights Louisiaianm made its appearance in New Orleans on Sunday. It is edited by JusosE BATON, Esq., at one time editor of the Courier. While advocating States Rights, it hoists the name of STEPHEN A. Douo.rs Sfor President, and advocates the reopening of the slave trade. This is queer antagonism. Stephen A. denounces the reopening of the slave trade, and yet the S. R. L. urges his claims. All success, however, to the new journal, although not the Presidential candi date whose name it hoists. 07 For the past week our sister city of Baton Rouge has been amused with the pre sence of a band of Minstrels, whose per formances have been exciting enough to draw crowded houmes nightly. The character of their exhibitions was any thing but elevating in tendency, and witn. less moral or point; but so prone are Baton Rougeans, male and female, to patronise amusements that we think the Ministrels cold have performed a month longer with the same result." If the citizens of Baton Rouj with their families could be induced to visit such; a rookery as the old Court House Hall, to witness such performances as have been given there the past week, how much more interest would they take in a well-conducted theatre, where plays of a moral and elevating character could be wit nessed for several months during the year ? Aside from such benefits, the rising genera tion of that city require a better school to assist their young ideas in developing them selves, than are usually incurred by visiting circuses, floating palaces, or listening to those abortions dignified with the title of Ethio pian Ministrely. We have heard of a move ment on foot to devise ways and means to build a theatre or Concert Hall in that city which we hope will assume a substantial shape before many days. Foaoraw As.rtNcas.-There is a rumor in court circles that a distinguished representa tive of one of the great powers of Europe, at Washington, is paying has addresses to the President's accomplished neice, Miss Lane.

The telegraphic news from Washington proves that the Democra tic members of the House of Representatives are slowly but certainly submitting to the empire of rasson and ijudgment. After vainly striving for more than six weeks to eleet as Speaker an Administration Demo crat, they appear to be convinced of the ab solute impossibility of success, and have wisely, prudently and patriotically resolved if practicable, to defeat the Black Republi- I can candidate by any representatives whose record on the slavery question is unimpeach able. The gettleman upon whom the choice of the Democracy has fallen is W. H. N. S.srrH, of North Carolina. On th.e last bal lot taken 'ou Friday, the 27th inst., to the the amazement and consternation of the sup- I 4orters of Sin.n..!aN, the. vote for SMrra reached 112. being the largest vote received by any candidate for Speaker during the pre sent session. Mr. SMrru is likewise the only member who has obtained more votes than Mr. SunasrAN. In other words, SHEa MAN. for the first time, failed to receive a plurality ol the votes cast. The result created intense excitement, and the House adjourned until to-day. We are not entirely withoutbsope that a Spedker will be chosen, and that Mr. SamTH willbe tie successful asp tat.5 e himself is probably the least ojectionable man to the Democrats, apart from their imr.ediate pofitical associates. Mr. Ssirrn represents the First Congressional District in North Carolina-the se~ of mahvy a fierce and dubious contest. n tl t Congress it was represented byiMr. ,º, an Administration DemoczMat l".ran for re-election to the preseatCoioTes~ and was opposed by Mr. 8xrra, an exceeding strong and-popular gen tleman. on old Line'Whig as we are inform ed. After an animated'canvass SM.IT was returned by tnearly six hundred maprity. He bears the reputation of being hn able man, thoroughly conversacit with politics, ready and forcible speaker. He may horth Carolina hi the orlit~l c pohtis, for the first time. It is evident that the Democrats in concen trating their efforts upon Mr. Sar~n have virtually acknowledged the impossibility of defeating Joari SiHEarMAs by one of their own numbe. and have determined to endeavor to put an end to the disgraceful interrgenum in the public business, and to throw the entire responsibility of further procrastination on the anti-slavery representatives. In this they have acted with undoubted prudence and sagacity. ,They have shown, albeit somewhat tardily, their entire willingness to surrender the imperious behests of party to the more paramount consideration of the pub lie service. They have practically evinced their desire to effect an organization of the House by the most incontrovertible ot proofs to wit: the transfer of their support to an undoubted political opponent. They have sought to be satisfied on but a sing'e, but in dispensable point, viz- whether Mr. S.rnrr was perfectly reliable and agreed with the National Dernocracy on the questions at issue between the North and South. Convinced of this fact, they have unhesitatingly sus tained him, and as we have s Lhave given so large and flattering a vote e mea sure to encourage the hope he House will eventually be organized by the election ot a Conservative Speaker. Our readers are aware that we have almost from the opening of the session predic:ed either that SERIa.sN would ultimately tii umph, or that a Speaker would be selected from the ranks of the Southern Opposition Without ertertaining the slightest objection to the choice of an Administration Democrat, we knew that this was wholly impracticable; and knowing too, that the Democrats could not be ignorant of the truth, we did not hesitate to unite in the censure which every Southern man not blir.nded by party spirit applied to them for their stolid obstinacy in refusing to take up some one else. We were met by the organs ol the Administtation with sneersand sophisms. The idea that 86 should go orer to less than half that number was derijledl a a childish proposition, although it was admit ted that by so doing the F6 would secure the election of a Southern Speaker, while the union of the Southern Opposition on De mocratic candidate could not promote his chances of success. When this was clearly demonstrated, a faint, feeble, and altogether vain attempt was made to impeach the fideli ty to the South of those Southern Represen. tatives who happened not to be Democrats Nevertheless the results seems in a fair way of justifying our opinions. The Democrat. understand at length the importance of an or Sganization, and the urgent necessity of beat ing the Black Republicans, We trust most Ssincerely that both objects may be speedily Sattained-it matters little by whose agen ,jcy.

We refer to the fact I w.th feelings indescrisablte, and make par- i ticular mention thereof that the circulation I of our columns shall assist in spreading the news to the people. We have no disposi tion to rake uip an old "quarrep' relative to the sugar crmp of .59-'60 in which the very precise and far-seeing 'Change writer of the Crescent saw from tho decks -f a steamer while making a passage from New Orleans to B ,you Sara, that the crop cf that year Iwould reach 400.000 hhds. provided certain metereological changes did not interfere. In vain lid we call up-,n the always accu rate 'Change writer to give is something more substantial for his figures than what he saw from the deck of a river steamer. but all to no purpose-he promised, however, to do so atter reireshiug his lacerated health across the Lake. This old distiile we do not want to rake up as we said befo,re, but merely mention it in order to re:resh ouer memory upon the subject. What effect that statement of the Crescent's 'Change writer had upon the sugar market we will leave for persons more directly ir terested than ourselves to say; but we are slightly of opinion that such a hap-hazard wa .f guessing and then publishing the guesiworto the.world through the columns ofan influential amid-widely circulated jrur nal, is rath.t i didIated to injure and greatiy annoy a clas ' producers, who should be protected _ ed more by the press of the State, th' branch of agri culture.

O()r.lin oF Lvact Law-.--The New York Du-than says: "'Thie Camden Antiquarian Society after sevreal years of patient investi .ation, have discovered that Col. Charles Lynch, brother of the founder of the city of Lynchbuirg, Va., was the first to inaugurate this feature of what is now considered the the common law. The Society has traced the practice of lynching this side of the wars of'76. ' In 1792,' says Wirts life ot Henry, 'there were many suits on the South side of James river for inflicting Lynch Law." From the report of the Society we are not able to determine whether Lynich was him self lynched or not; but there is a hant this way broad enough for the Society to come in and claim the honor of this discovery. should it ever be needl'fl to do so. We do riot like to differ from so learned a body as that of the Camden Society, but think the custom of lynching was the common law of England at the conquest. Modern refinement has given the custom a very fine pdlish it did not have in the days of the Trojn. If Col. Lynch deserves any credit for the discovery, he may claim the tar and leathers-no more. Will not the committee have a minorit,' report. We are unwil.ing to give Col. Lynch any more than the ter and feathers. The above paragraphs are floating around anti seem to be generally endorsed as correct. But we think there must be some mistake in regard to tho antiquity of Lynch law, as set forth above. Sir Walter Scott in his romance of Count Robert of Paris thus speaks ofa sim ilar punishment among the Crusaders: Persons among the Crusaders found guilty of certain offences, diil penance in a coat of tar and feathers, though it is supposed a pun ishment of modern inver:tion.

BENEFITS OF 'IILITARY AND SCIENTIFIC EDUCATION TO PLANTERns.-We have been permitted to copy the following, says the Louisiana Democrat, from a letter written b a Louisiana Planter, who was recently an officer of rank and reputation in the United States Army, to a citizen of this Parih h: ':High Literary Institutions are growing up arountd us in every section, butI in the Scr entilic and Military. we are sadly deficient.
