W. A. Le$VEUR ............Pabllrber BATON ROUGE .IUNE 21. 181., TIE CAIPITOLIAN. As )ooin as railway communication is permanently assured and the State Government is removed to this city, it is our lurpone to issue a daily edi tion of the CarrTou.IAN, which will contain, lbesiOd,.4 the latest press dis patche's, ai ftll 4lanlina.ry of State news and such items of interest con c'rining the doings at the state head quarters as will prove of interest to readers everywhere. WVe propose to torward the daily edition of the CUAPIToi.AN to New Or1leans along the line of the rail road atnd by our rivc" steame.rs, so as to give it as large I circulation as posiblºe. It will bIe our aim to render the pa per one worthy of the Capital of the State. and to make it its fist-class ad vertising nedinun, in the locality, as well as for the advertisers of New Orleanis anl elsewhere. With this view, we, have already securecl the services of Col. Henry 1). Monier, who in the city of New Or leans, will represent the CA. TI'OIAN in the imaltti'r of, advertising contracts etc. Col. fmn ier will 1, h teint.uneIled by the L.oaisianat Yeterlis of the Ar smay of Virginia, us the gallant Lieiu tenant--Colonllt of the 'l'Tenth Infantry, and for a time th tei p tmiorary Conaltn d1r' of Staft'ord's iBrigade. We are sure that his and our friends will he pleased to extend through him a iib crabl pIarona:ge to the CAI'fTOI IA N. 'THiE .IEWI~MI QUENTION. It is truly asse~rted that history re peats it, elf. For ,.xam ple wI, point to the cruel asaulllt now being made upon the Jews in many provinces of Russia and Itonita|,ia. where the hoiles of the sons of Israel are being sacked by fianaticized Imobs who hound the (eveiln iuito death. It nmay be said by way of palliation for these crimes against humannity, that ignorance ainn supelrstition guide the ha|nd of the now ly emancipated serfs of Russia, and of the stupid peasants of Iounaania. IBut when we see ealightened Ger many joining in the crusade. ulnder the leaders.hip of some Cof her most renown'ed statesmen, we almost de spair of the human family and of the restraining intluences of civilization. We know of ho crime that the .kJets are commnitting against society, lun less it is criminal for themn to adhere to the liuith and traditions of their atn cestry; to be inldastrious, thrifty and of frugal habits; to respect the laws of the comuntry wl'ercin they live : to foillow the prceplts of morality. and to respect and tolerate. by word and1I deedth, te tithih of their hereditary perseetlutors. iThe saime inccuive which artavs the coiununist against the rich mian, moves the barbarians ol the presutt century, whether thley be the ignor ant peaantry of IRussia, or theC self styled thinkers of Gtermany. \'Will christianity clothed with the mantle of civilization, give connte nance to the disgraceful cruelties now being enacted in old Europe ? Wlhat is worse still, will the christian phi lanthiroiists of Ifree andl tolerant America silently approve those deeds across tile ocean, the recital of which ought to brnlug the blush of shame to tile cheek of every man, who loves religious and political liberty ? We trust that • the voice of the American peolle ivill be heard to say that amongst them, at leasct, the Is raeclites will be satfe from all malan ncr of persecution, and that the religious freedom guaranteed by the Consti tution will ever be maintained, as well towards them as for any ,other class or race of mlell. A niimlberi of engineers and mte chaieiiics, consisting of l)rominent steamboatulen, have\ inspected the b)oilers of the Steamer Hanna, and the following is their report: "This is to certify that the undersigned ei gineers and mechanicie this day made a visit of inspection to the steamer John H. Hlanna, and examined tlhe flue which recently collapsed and found that it was made of iron scant three-sixteenths of an inch thick; and that it was uot welded at the place it gave way. And we hereby pronounce it bad and defective which in our opinion, was the cause of the collapse, and that it was not cansed by excessive pressure. Reed's Gilt Edge Tonic sasist Digetion S During the memorable campaign fotthe liberation of th .State from Radical rule, in 18?6, a number of talented and patiptct orators had thrown themselves in the breech to arouse the people to action.. Among these none were more zealous, cour ageous and indefatigable than our gallant friend Col, James Lingan, of New Orleans, who, at the request.of the State Committee, came to Baton Rouge in the month of October and addressed a large concourse of citi zens, at Pike's Hall, in a manner which reoleoted great credit upon him,and drew forth the repeated plau dits of the throng of his listeners. In his address Col. Lingan made the following4.poetic allusion to the Capitol as it was at that time, when it fittingly represented our down trodden State: "That nmagniticentstructure, front ing the glorious sweep of the Missis sippi, in whose halls the honorable replresentatives of a cultivated and noble; people framed the legislation of a prosperous State in the past whose classic towers and shaded grounds call up, proud memories of Louisiana as she was, and Baton Rouge. as her proud Capital, [ap plause] was a palace of beauty and grace, and a ,itate house where laws wei franmed in honesty, and slmin istered with justice and wisdom. But now, those blackened and frown ing ruins stand amidst the deserted walks and overgrown shrubbery, like solemn sentinels keeping watch over the encampment of the dead! The ancients built towering obe lisks and great monuments of stone, and sculptured walls and architrave witnessed their blighted hopes and their buried dead! But poor, desola ted Louisiana, whose dead heroes, "untwelpt, unhonored and unsung," have found uncovered graves on ev ery battlefield of the country, lnlds in thosne sacred and once proud walls of her Capitol. now blackened and dis figured by the rude hand of wtr, the melancholy burial place of her bright past. the gloomy nausoletum of tile hopes and aspirations of a noble. pa triotic and gallant peolle." Those words left a deep, impres sion on the minds and hearts of the Baton Rougeans, which, in great Ilieaslre, tended to organize the mlovement which culminated in the restoration of the Capitol, after a se ries of persistent efforts in the faice of many obstacles and dilliculties. WVe lope that the gifted orator, will. some day, have occasion to al lude in eqlually touching terms, with in its halls, to the beauteous edifice that will soon snpercede the then de serted ruins which appealed so strong ly to his patriotic heart. "IUNEA\sY IL;S TilE IIEAI)."--We desire our confreres of the Advocate and Sugar Planter to know that when we announced our intention of inter viewing our prominent citizens as to their opinion of rats, we had not the slighltest intention of inlcluding those who belong to the human species. Ilad we intended to do so, profes sional courtesy would have pirompted us to except them. Hence their un easiness was, to say thle least, en tirely premature. The IF'eliciana Sentinel says: "The New (Orleans Daily States makes a good suggestion to the effect that the old St. Louis Hotel, the present State house of Louisiana but whlich will cease to lie upon the completion of the capitol at Baton Rouge, will be' admirably ctited for an establish ment fir the manufacture of light goods, thereby not only furnishing a a revenue to the State, but will fur nishl the means of a livelihood to a number of deserving people needing work. The following fromn the Patriot D)emocrat, is evidently a thrust at the N. O. I)emocrat: Will Brother Burke please "rise up to stand on his feet to make a few remarks" further: "Our friend Burke of the I)emocrat, has reettly been letting the world know how untanmliiar he is with the Bible." EXCITING NCENE. (GA'rE'svtLLE, TEx., June lM.-Thejury ii the Kemp case to-day returned the fol lowing verdict: "We the jury find the ,lef;edantt, Kemp, guilty of murder in the fi rst (legre(e." F.r a moment after thie verdict was read there was a dreadfiul stillness in the court room, which was broken by Kemp's aged fiuther, who became terribly ex cited and made a break for his son, bnt was thrown back by one of the oticeers. Six-shooters flashed in the court-room, and the excitement was great. Young Kemp rushed to the window and leaped to the ground from the second story, a distance ot twenty feet.

The crime was committed in Polk county, June 15, 18$0. The victim was a 16-year-old boy, who had incurred the displeasure of certaln.parties whom he caught robbing a turkey trap in the neighborhood of his mother's cabin. These men persecuted the entire family, arresting the boy and his sister on the charge of horse stealing. The Peerses were poor, but honest, and their suffer* ings at the hands of the desperadoes was cruel in the extreme, and as given by the mother, Mrs. Peerse, to Geov. Church hill, and corroborated by reputable rwit nesses, reads more like fiction than the horrible truth which it has proven to be,. Frank was seized at length while crossing the mountains by a gang of men, who hung him and then riddled his body with bullets, throwing it on a birus heap in the woods as food for buzzards. Mrs. l'eerso, after patient search, found the corpse and gave it burial. She d, scribes the scene in a widely pathetic mantner, adding that God only knew her thoughts as she stood beside the dead body of her darling son, her only stay and comfort in this world, in the midst of the desolate forest. About twelve men are.implicated in the murder. They are known, and it is thought that jus tice will be administered to one and all. It is certainly the most brutal and cold blooded murder that has ever occurred in the State. Reed's Gilt E-dge 'T'onic prvet- t Malaria Tunatl'R Gjilt Idhra T'onic u~rovents Malalria FOLR SALE.
