W.A. LeliUEUR ....... ....Publisher BATON ROUGE JULY 23. 181. O POLICE JURY. A perusal of the account of the pro ceedings of, 'hoolive Jury ofthis parish, 'pubHsl on last Saturday, will doubtless e great satisfaction to the people. It will be seen in President Jack son's report that all but $24.25 of the liabilities incurred by the parish in 1881) have beaun paid in full, while a large amount of taxes for that year are still uncollected. A number of substantial bridges have been erect ed; the jail has been thoroughly over hauled and repairs made to the court house; all of which improvements have been promptly paid for. The parish can now be said to be out of its financial troubles, and the pirospect is that under such mnanagc ment as the present, while improve ments will be steadily going on, the Police Jury will be enabled, if the people pay up their taxes promptly, to bgin to reduce the back indebted ness and place the aflailrs of the par ish of East Baton ll-ge o a sound, permianent basis. TI'hey Ihave, beside, ipassed a practi cal ryad ordinance, which, if it is heartily obeyed by the people, will give us the good roads in the fall, that the parish has needild for, alas, very many years. Gov. W'iltz deserves to be comupli Ielted for11' his ihappy selection of the gentlemenII comnposing o'ur Police' Ju ry, who have shown tlhex'uslv es so attentive to their (duties and eager to restotre the capital rarishl to the high position it olte nec ipild.

As the grand, beautiful, and histor ic structure; which is destined once' more to become the Capitol of the State, approaches completion, the at tention of all who are interested in the material welfare of the State are turned in that direction. Already Baton Rouge h being spoken of with great anticipations as a commerciak centre; And the proposed railroad from New Orleans thither, is attract ing much attention. All classes of our people are being interested with these vital interests so hecessary to the progress of our State. Political animosities are being subsided liber al journals of Democratic proclivities are advocating the rights of all. Our Southern people have just demon strated that the issues of the war are buried forever, by their universal de nouncement of the treacherous at telmpt upon a Republican President's life, and the universal sympathies ex tended from all over the South in be half of a sorrowing Nation. There are unmistakable signs of progress, but whilst indulging in these propi ous signs, we are astounded at the action of Mr. C. C. Gibbens, the pro prietor of the ferry boat Irene, plying between East and West Baton Rouge. Mti. Gibbens, in the face of the Legis lative halls of the State, where the civil and political rights of all "asses must be tdefended, wantonly, and openly violates the laws already en acted and subscribed to by the State by insulting two respectable colored ladies and consigning them to separ ate apartments designated by him for colored people. The ladies in ques tion were Mris. Frank Delaney and Miss Adele Barnes, two of our most respected citizens When individuals of such high standing and character, their rights abridged upon such an insignificant public carrier, what will be the results if the evil is not inmnlediately corrected? ''The colored people have done much for Blaton Rouge, and the represents tives of the race will soon be called to assemble at the Capital in their ca pacities as legislators, what guaran the can they hold out to their people, that their interests will be guarded or even considered if such an outrage is to be tolerated at this jaucture ? iWhen the ordinance passed by the late Constitutional Convention was being ratified at the polls, the colored voters believing that the authorities at Baton Rouge would hie more zeal ouls in protecting their rights than in this thronged mnetropolis, voted al Imost Iunaniimously in favor of Baton Rou e. Fortunately for us, \we have foir Mayor of that town a very con servative gentleman, who was a meI her ofithe very Constitutional Con Vellion, which passed the ordinance iri moving the State house to IBaton holluge. Mr. .Jastrenmski was very lib iral in his views whilst a miemberof the Convention, and we lreled to be lieve by his past acts, that he will utniiediately stamnlp out this unjust assault by his ofticial authority. Siuch 11an outrage would not be tolerated or iallowed evet inll New Orleans where 1prijudice is infllipalut. We there'ore bring this matter n' lit' Mayor Jastreunski. hoping that lie will ait once remedy this evil by 410)sing Mr. G ibbens to extend equal foi'ilities to all panties regardless of i 1')., ('01or 01' pieviotis coudittioi up on his ptuldic earlier.

LEON JASTREMSKI Mayor of Baton Bougeo. ANOTHER MURDER. Caused by Faithlessness of a Wife Her Paramour Shoots Down the Husband with His Own Shot Gun in the Public Road and Makes Good his Escape. Shreveport Timea. On last Monday night about 11 o'clock, Lient. Wm. H. Busby, of our city police force, received information from a colored man named David Allen, which led him to believe that a murder had been committed on the Bauman place, about one mile from the corporate limits of the city and a quarter of a mile south of the resi dence of Judge T. T. Land, in the vi cinity of what is known as the Maples place. He immediately apprised Deputy Slherift Jno. C, Elstner of the fiacts that had been imparted to hins and at I o'clock yesterday morning in company with that officer proceeded to the neighborhood designated. After bout an hour's search, they discov ered, a dim by-road in the woods, the dead body of Squire Coleman, a well known colored man and old citizen of this vicinity. HIe was lying on his face in the road, with a pistol firmly grasped in his outstretched right hand. His body wus cold andl stiff, show ing that the vital spark had fled from its earthly tenement several hours previons to its discovery. Upon turning him over they found that his body had been perfectly riddled with buckshot and were satisfied that his murderer must have fired upon him at very close rainge, causing his death almost instantly. The spot where the body of Colemanl was founid was about a quarter of a mile from the cabin in which ha lived. After plac ing a cnstodian in charge of the body, Messrs. Pushy and Elstner, returned to the city and reported its discovery. Yesterday morning Justice of the Peace L. E. Carter, in the absence of Dr. W. M. Turner, onur coroner, accomlpanied by the officers named and a niumber of our citizens, among whom was a reporter of the Standard, proceeded to the spot where the body was found and held an inquest. The evidence given befbre the jury of inquest, astaken downs by our re liortelr, gives all the details of the occurencesjust prior to al)l subseq uen t to the killing. In coIversaltion, how ever, with David Allen, who has known Coleman for many years aind * who is his closest neighbor,our reporter learned tlhe followi zg additional par ticulars : It seems that Churley John son who. as will be seen from the evi dence did the killing, came here several months ago and soon became quite intimate with Sarat Colemsan, the wife of the deceased, claiming to be her brother, and even succeeded in passing himself off on Coleman as such and remained at his house and worked with him for some time. Sub sequent events disclosed the fact that this relationship was altogether a sham, for about hive or six weeks ago, Coleman's wife deserted huim and went to live with Johnsonon Captain J. M. Voster's plantation in Bossier 'l parish, where he had engaged to work as a fa rmi hand. Coleman not long since went to Foster's place and brought his wdif back horue, but she again left him and took up her abode , in this city, Trisere she continnedl to r' ceive the 'isits of Jouson. A few t(l;w ago, Coleman seemingly made up isis miuln to get rid of his faithless wif altogether, and sent her word to come anul get what things she had at his house. Slhe weint to Cole au's house, aecompan ied by her pI!;nruuor.
