The Baltimore and Ohio Rail Road Companv has recently placed in service on its fast trains between New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, three new engines which are. doubtless the finest and fastest ever built in this country. These new flyers have driving wheels six feet, six inches high and cyl- inders 20 inches by 24. The large cylin- ders give them tremendous power and the high drivers protect the machinery from the rack and strain incident to dri- ving smaller engines at great speed. There Is practically no limit to the speed to which these new marvels maybe driven and they skim over the rails as smooflily as a swallow over a lake. Another recent addition to the motive power of the company is a consignment of eight powerful' ten wheel passenger engines, designed for service on the mountain divisions. These are the heav- iest ten wheel engines ever constructed, J weighing sixty-seven and one-half tons', "rhey have driving wheels six feet two inches high and cylinders 21 inches by 26. _One of these machines performs the work heretofore requiring two of- the- ordinary class and they take the heavy through express trains up the mountain grades quickly and with perfect ease. The Mt. Clare shops of the company have recently completed an order for ten switch engines of the highest type and sufficiently powerful to make up a train equal to the fall drawing power of a consolidation freight engine. Also three new heavy-eight wheel passenger engines, having driving wheels five feet eight Inches, and cylinders' twenty inches by twenty-four. These engines are doing excellent work; they are_very pow- erful and susceptible of great speed. In addition to the foregoing the Com- pany has now under construction at its Mt. Clare Shops ten powerful ten wheel engines designed for fast -freight service and for heavy passenger trams on occa- sion, also twelve consolidation freight en- gines of great power. These additions to its motive power are ia line with the other great improve- ments constantly being made in the gen- eral betterment of the B. O.' property by its present management, which have been noted by the press from time to time, and the rapid augmentation of the passenger traffic of the Company indi- cates public is quick to recog- nize the present and constantly Increas- ing efficiency of its train service. Frederick Business College. The Frederick Business College, which has opened its doors to the young ladies and .gentlemen of Frederick, a3 well as to our business community in general, prom- ises to promote the advancement of prac- tical education- The classics and higher mathematics are by np means considered secondary- but there is no-doubt about a great deal of time being lost in such stud- ies when the student wishes to prepare for mercantile life. Mr. Guion has had many years experience In his own and other colleges and trusts to the people of Frederick city and county that they may assist him in establishing an institution which may in time, be an honor and credit to us. There are a few here, for- merly students under his teaching in Bal- timore, who stand ready to endorse him through the benefit they have themselves received, and it remains with those need- ing such instruction as a easiness col- lege can give to assist In this work by their means, influence sad attendance, The college has made a start with sixteen ia attendance In we hope that the number may increase a hundred fold before the year closes.

Marquis Imperiali's last cote, which, includes the- Rmlmi dispatch, and Secretary Blame's reply vteK given to the press last night." The Harqms' note includes the dis- patch from Kudini, heretofore published, in which, the Italian premier urges onlv prompt action, and ia >s-hich he says far- ther: I wish to add that the public opinion in Italy s justly impatient, and It concrete provision- wtre at oncu I should find myself in the painful of showing openly our dis- satisfaction by the minister of Us majesty from a country where he is unable to obtain Justice. RCDKI. Indemnity Not Promised. You quote in yocr note part of the Marquis Radtni't, of April i in these words: his majesty's government takes note of the declaration whereby the Federal government recognizes that an indemnity is dne to the of the victims, in virtue of the treaty in between the two countries." [f will carefully examine my note of April 1 he will discover that "1 did not recognize that an indemnity is due to the families of the victims, in virtue of the treaty in force between the two countries." What I did say was in answer to Baron asser- tion, that the United States governmoal re- fused to take demand for indemnity Into consideration- fho Marquis Badini may be assured that the United States would recompense every Italian subject who might "be wronged by a violation of treaty" to Trlucb. the faitli of the United States is piedgeil. But assurance leaves unsettled the important question whether the treaty has been violated. Upon this point the president, with sufficient facts placed before has taken full time for dccLJou. lit uow directs that certain considerations oti the gen- eral subject be submitted to the judgment of the Italian government. A Precedent of Value. As a precedent of great value to the case under discussion the president recalls the con- clusion maintained by Mr. "Webster in 1851, when he was secretary of state under Presi- dent FUlmore. la. August of that year a. mob in New Orleans demolished the building in which, the Spanish consul was located, and at the same rime attacks were made upon coffee bouses and cigar shops kept by Spanish sub- jects. American citizens were involved in the losses, which, in the aggregate, were large. The supposed cause of the. mob was the intelli- gence of tie execution of fifty young Ameri- cans in Havana, and the banishment to Span- Mi mines of nearly two hundred citizens of the United States. The victims were all mem- bers of the abortive Lopez expedition. Incon- sequence of these depredations of the mob upon the properly of the Spanish consul, as well as against the Spanish, subjects, Bon Cal- deron Be la Banca, the minister of Spain, de- manded indemnification for all the looses, both official and personal. Hhe Consul Had a. Special Claim. Mr. Webster admitted that the Spanish, consul was entitled to indemnity, and assured the Spanish, minister that if the injured con- sul, Mr. Laborde, return to his post, or any other consul for Xew Orleans shall be ap- pointed by her Catholic majesty's govern- ment, the officers of this government resident in that city Witt be instructed to .receive and treat Mm. with courtesy, and with a national salute to the Hag of his ship, if he shall arrive in a Sp anish vessel, as a demonstration of re- spect." But when pressed by the Sponish min- ister to afford indemnity to Spanish, subjects injured by the mob, in common with, Ameri- can citizens, Mr. Webster declined to accede to the demand, and gave his reasons. These reasons "were to the effect that the consul-was entitled to special pro- tection because of his position, while Spanish subjects resident here are en- titled only to the protection afforded ottr own citizens. The consul and the subjects were, "howeva-. subsequently indemnified in, recognition of certain magnanimous action on thepaxt-of Spain towards Americans. May Sue for Damages. The right to judicial remedy wiich Mr. "Webster assured to the Spanish'subjects is likewise assured to the Italian subjects. The Tight is specially guaranteed in the second section of the third article of the constitu- tion. And, as Mr. Webster points out, the resident alien has a privilege which is denied to the citizen- The widows and children of the citizens who lost their lives by mob violence may sue the- leaders and members of the mob only in the courts of Louisiana, while the widows and children of the Italian sub- jects who suffered death have the right to sue each meuiber of the mob, not only in the state courts, but also before the federal tribunal for the district of Louisiana. Pfoviaion is mado in the revised civil code of for re- dress of such grievances as the widows and children of the victims of the mob may plead. The Cases Different. The government of the United States would fed justified in Testing on the argument and conclusion of Mr. Webster if the mob of March It, 139L, did not ia some of its characteristics differ from the mob of 1S5L But it is due to entire candor, due to this government and due to the government of Italy to point out certain differences, of the government of tie United States is in honor bound to take notice. In the case of the mob of 1851 Mr. Webster asserts that personal injury was offered to any outs" that "ihe police and other legal au- thorities did an that was possible to preserve the peace and arrest the that "the mob acted in the beat of blood and not in pur- suance of any predetermined plan or purpose of injury or tiat "the mob was com- posed of irresponsible persons, the names of none of wbom are known to the government of the United States, nor, so far as the govern- ment is informed, to its officers or agents in New Owr Government Moving Promptly. As promptly as possible after the lamentable occurrences at New Orleans the president di- rected the attorney Receral to cause through bis department a, full inqciry to be made into all the facts connected therewith. He has not yet received tie official report. If it be found thai a prosecution can be maintained aader the statutes of tfce United States, the case will be presented TO the next crand jnrv. accordinc to the ossal methods of criminal adminis-tra- taon. But if it shall be found, as seems prob- able, that criminal proceedings can only be taken in the courts of Louisiana the president caa fo this direction do no more than to upon the state officers- tbe duty of prompUy brining tlie offenders to tnal. This was done Jus telegram to toe governor of Louisiana as early as the 15ih of March, Jio Special Protection for Aliens. If ftsbaJl resalt that the case can be prose- cuted onJy in the state courts of Louisiana and the usual judicial investigation and pro- eednre under tbt. criminal law is not resorted NEW JERSEY ELECTIONS.

SAX April According to advices from Japan by the steamer Gaelic, which arrived from Hong Kong, the czarowitz is not coming to this coun- try. A Japanese paper says that al- though his visit to Japan is ostensibly made as a tour, his actual object seems to be the observation of the efficiency of the military preparations of that coun- try. especially on its northern frontier.

The pleas- ure trip of the -presidential party from Chattanooga wiis somewhat marred by the receipt of a dispatch announcing Mrs. Halford's death. When informed that Mrs. Halford was daid the presi- dent expressed sincere sorrow, and im- mediately sent a message of condolence to his private secretary. The track of the Western and Atlanta railroad, over which the tram proceeded to Atlanta, marked the line of the route taken by Gen. Sherman on his famous march to the sea. The president and Marshall sat in the observa- tion car most of the journey and enter- tained other members of 'the party with accounts of battles in which they had participated while the former was colonel of and the lattei in the ranks of -the Seventieth Indiana regiment. Bes- aca proved the most interesting to the president of all places along the line of the road. It was here that Marshal Ramsdell lost his arm. when Col Har- rison was one of the first over the breast- works. At Kingston and Cartersville the president made brief speeches. "Welcomed to Georgia. As the train approached the vicinity of Atlanta steam whistles from factories and cheers from crowds along the way- side showed .that Atlanta's reception was a cordial one. In the vicinity of the depot an immense concourse had assem- bled. fences, railroad cars, telegraph poles and all manner of strnctnresbeing used by those anxious to get a glimpse of the president. Cheering for half an; hour was incessant, and as the train moved along crowds of people, cheering lustily, closed in after the ;train and fol- lowed running in its wake. The_ streets of the business portion of the city were fairly jammed with people, who gave their lungs full vent. As the train came to a standstill Governor Northern came on the platform, and, grasping the presi- dent by the hand, saiii: -'Mr. President, I welcome yon to Georgia, and I am sure yon will find us loyal and Oa Peach Tree Creek Battlefield.

Many of the older inhabitants have taken esixxiid jnvcaution-t in their doors, an nnnMial thing in thb quiet neighbor- hood. The Coroner's Inquest. At 1 o'clock vesterday afternoon an inquest was held on the body of the murdered woman by Coroner Perry latzenberg. of Elkton, and a jury which consisted of the' following: Foreman, H. H. Hiunes, president of the National bank at Eising Sun; J. F. Hindman, W. M. Moore, .lesse A. Kirk, school com- missioner; W. C. Brown, Mil ford B. Richards, Stephen ,J- Murphy, J. R. Coatee, B. B. DunbaV, of Elktou; George Ash. editor of Tho Democrat. Elkton. and Charles F. Hinchiitte, also JUK- ton. James Richards was the first witness, and he gave the story of the shooting substantially as published. The Doctors' Testimony. Dr. George S. Dare, who made the antopsy on the body of Mrs. Richards, said that the bullet had entered the head, on the right side of the brain, about an inch and a half above the ear, and taking a downwiird course and passing through the posterior portion of tho brain, had lodged against the sknH on the left side at the "base of the brain. There was severe hemorrhage of brain ventricle and rupture of the brain sub- stance. Clote of blood had formed in the brain, and small pieces of the skull were scattered in the substance of the brain. Mr. Richards' "Wounds. Dr. Charles E. Turner gave corrobora- tive testimony regardinjr the autopsy. He was called to see Mr. Richards at a. m. on Monday. He found two bullet wounds, one on the front of the lower portion of the chest, through which the bullet had passed along the course of the rib. Toe other had en- tered on the side of the chest and follow- ing the same course had passed out in front. The ankle was not broken, but there was a heavy crack of the ankle bone. This wound might have been made in falling down stairs. This concluded the testimony and the jury passed into the parlor to see the body. The dead -woman was lying on an improvised trestle, covered with a sheet which was stained with blood. The face was fearfully distorted and showed the agony undergone before death re- lieved her of her sufferings. The .Tary'i Tertfict. After consulting for a few minutes the jury returned thefollowing verdict: find that L. Jenny Richards came to'her death ou ilouibty, April 13, 1551, at the residence of her from the ef-r fects of a pistol ball that entered the' brain, fired by the hand of some person unknown to the jury-" A sensation was created when Con- ductor W. F. Hallur, of the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Railroad, came forward and stated that he had talked with George Brain, the suspected man, at 11 A. M. on Monday at the Per- ryvflle depot. This contradicts entirety the story told by Bram. who says that on Monday he was in Baltimore.
