NMI131. GARNW D.OI A Woman who Loves Her uasband and Her Home. Guiteau's dastardly and nearly fa tal attack upon Mr. Gaifield has served not only to bring the President nearer than ever to the hearts of the people, but to show in strong relief the beautiful character of his nobles wife. There perhaps has never been a more happy unicn than that of Lucretia Rudolph and James Abram Garfield. The one has proved to be utich nearer the complement of the other than usually occurs in this life. Mrs. Garfield is not what would be called a pretty woman, but she is tall, fine looking, has a kind, good face, and the gentlest manners. She has a slight, but well-knit form, small features, with a somewhat prominent forehead, and hafr originally black, now somewhat tinged with gray. A pair of black eyes and a mouth about which there plays a sweetly bewitch ing smile, are the most attractive fea- 2 tures of a thoroughly attractive face. I She is a quick observer, an intelligent listener, but undemon...

LEON JASTRERSK ..........* Editor 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 E...

A $ I* INGG PARALLEL TO THIE RECENT TRAGEDY. 'n Ilth May, 1811, the Rt.l Hon. Spencer Percival, Chancellor of the Exchequer, was entering the lobby of the House of Commons, in company with Lord F. Osborne, when he was shet with a pistol, and expired, ut tering only the words, 'ohl I'm m urdered!" A person was standing between the assassin and the deceas ed at the time the pistol was tired, and the Alsassin was obliged to raise his hand over the shoulder of the in tervening individual, and the ball consequently took a slanting direc tion. 'The murderer threw down the pis tol, but on his person was found an other with a steel barrel seven inches in length, and a bundle of papers. He made no effort to escape. Hor ror and dismay at first prevented any attention being paid to the assassin, but when the question was asked, "where is the rascal that fired?" John Bellingham, who had been un observed, coolly stepped up and re plied, "I am the unfortunate man." When asked the motive of the ho...
