The Mississippi Question.?The Albany Argus
still rests very uneasy in view of the afitude of its
Mississippi brethren in relation to their Slate Bond?.
Tn its last paper, it endeavjrs to give currency to
The Sun's versioi of the matter, as follows :
" The Setc-York .S'an, a neutral paper, alludes
to the Bond question, as connected with the recent
Election, and says:
" ' The public should not be misled upon thi9 sub?
ject on either side of the water. The simple fact*
are these :?A portion of the Bonds of Mississippi
were negotiated in direct violation of the law which
authorized them, and in the- face of a protest l>y tlw
Governor against the legality oj the transaction.
It is therefore claimed by those who are supposed to
paying them that the sale was fraudulent and void,
and that any individual in any country would be re?
leased from paying the bonds under similar circum?
stances. It is upon this specific ground alone, and
not upon the general question of repudiation, which
nobody is in favor of, that the contest has been
carried on.' "
The Italics above are ours, employed to mark
the mi.sstatemeiit* of ihe Sun and Argus respec?
tively. It is no more true that the State Bonds
in question were sold '??n the face, of a Protest"
than that the Sun is "a neutral paper"?
that is, not at all. The Five Millions of Bonds,
issued in pursuance of an act of the Legislature,
were formally and fully executed in May, 1333,
by thsLocO'FoCO Governor McNutt, (whoso partv
now pretend that the law under which they were so
Issued by him was unconstitutional,) and by him
delivered to the Union Hank Commissioners for
?negotiation. Those Commissioners thereupon pro?
ceeded to negotiate them, as prescribed by the
Governor und Legislature, and did negotiate them.
It is now asserted that they did not geiso much for
them as the act contemplated and required, be?
cause they changed the dollars into pounds ?ler?
nt 4s. fid. to the dollar, and look bills on Pb.lu
dolphia payable (ibis being the 18th of August)
Ono Million of Dollars each on the 1st of the
nucceeding November, January, .May and July
respectively. On t^ese Terms, tbe\ negotiated Gvi
per cent. Stock at par?terms which any indelm-d
State in tbo Union would be glad to accept at thi
nioment. Bui il in contended that they were leas
favorable tbuti the act required, nnd Mississippi
refuses to pay her bonds for an alleged de?
parture from her instructions by her own author?
ized agents. This is ilio ense in a nut-shell.
THERE was no shadow or Tllf'l'oht OF PRO?
test from Gov. McNWTT, ok any body Et.sk
3feakino for MtSSISStPI, TILL LONG AFTER
"ward. Gov. McNutt did protest against a simi?
lar negotiation of Five Millions more of Bonds,
waich ho had executed, und put a stop to it. But
ibis did not refer to and certainly could not att'eet
the salo which bud previously been made without
opposition or remonstrance.
Jacksonville Bank.?We wage open way
against the whole system of pulling up the notesol
some distant Bank here, advertising to redeem
them at a small discount, und so pushing them in?
to circulation. Il is not sate ; it is oppressive to ^
our workingtnen in its shuGng feature: it Ls
generally dishonest. We war not on individuals ;
but on a pernicious and dangerous system of loose
speculating, miscalled Bunking, by which our citi?
zens have been bled too long and too freely. The
following facts in relation to the hocus-pocus io
detnptiou id' the hills of the Jacksonville Bant oj
Florida, by its reputed owner here, Mr. Beach ol
tho Sun newspapci and l'l>ter Manufacturers'
Bank, ute deserving of every man's consideration:
An acquaintance of ours called at the office of
the Sun one day lust week with bills to the umoiiiit
often dulluis on the Jacksonville Bank, which Mr.
Beuch hur! advertised to redeem ut l.J per cent
disiouHt. On presenting the lulls. Beach appealed
to Ii? surprised, und, after some hesitation, said
that be thought these bilis must be purl of about
$38,000 that were stolen from the Bank I?ibul be
could not redeem llietn, but. upon the whole, was
willing to give fifty cents on tho dollar for them,
and would gise the offerer the privilege of taking
them up again tit any time, if the person thought
he could do better with ibetn. This proposition
was accepted. A day or two afterwards be saw
?several advertisements in the Sun. stating thut
goods woulds be given fin Jacksonville money ut
par. He concluded that this would be bettor to
him than fifty conts on the dollar in money, ami
aseordingly called on Beach and requested, ac?
cording to Beach's own proposal, to return tho rive
dollars and take up his Jacksonville bills. Beach
dented any knowledge of the transaction, and
said he knew nothing about it. Alter some words
had passed, he said that he only agreed to give
them back in case they were culled lor on the
same day !
We pubii.ti the above in order to caution the
public not to put too much faith in the advertise?
ments from that source concerning the redemption
of bills. Thu person who made the above state?
ment (Mr. Blanchard, Nassau-street, near John,)
we have personally known for some years. He is
an industrious, hard-working, honest und intelli?
gent man, and his statement may be tally relied on.

speech at the capitol on the eve of the late elec?

OCF* Wo copy the foregoing article, word for
word, from the Albany Argu?, where it appears a
a leading editorial. We ask ail honest men to con?
sider it carefully, and to preserve it for future re?
ference. The Argus bns charged us with harsh?

were some softer term whirl) would do justice to
their conduct. But what shall we think of this ??
Here is no affectation of disputing the validity ?t
the debt on the pretext set up by the Mississippi
tali-Bonders; but tlie general question?to pay e.t

Miserable humbug! The question is presentesi

pay her Bonds; Illinois, Indiana, Arkansas, &c.
are letting the interest go unpaid. AW is the
time for every honest man in the Union to raise bis

.Tlechnnica' Inittitnle Lecture*;.
Mr.J. B. SruLE?'? Lecture before the Mechanics'
Institute la*: evening was one which ought to be i
' universally heard and heeded. Its subject wta
" The Rights or thk MnfORITT," and its aim to
! refute the too common idea that the poirer of the
Majority to govern as it pleases within certain
? limits carries with it the right so to govern u
defiance of the interests, wishes and feelings of ,
the Minority. Mr. Scoles maintained that the
Minority has a right to have its feelings and
wishes respected even in th* choice of Public
Officers; for while the Majoriry can and will
select these from their own ranks, they have no
xisht to select those peculiarly obnoxious to the
Minority. The Minority has also a right to be
heard and respected in the Public Policy of the
Country. The Majority must ultimately govern :
: but it has no right to treat with neglect die argu
ments, representations and remonstrances of the
Minority; i: sbould bear and consider them pa
; tie/ttly and fully, yielding to them ail that justice
: ?hall seem to require. But, above all, the Minority
! have an indefeasible right to Equal Laws, Equal
I Protection, Equal Taxation: and of these the
j Majority?r.o matter how overwhelming?cannot
J deprive them without flagrant injustice and op
j pression. A particular policy may be advantageous
to the Majority; and yet if it bear unequally and
! oppressively on the Minority, the Majority have
! no right to adopt and enforce it.
I Mr. Scoles illustrated this position by the case
! of the State Prison Monopoly. A majority of the
j community probably are benefited, or believe them
: selves to be, by the present system of State Pris
j on Labor. The community, as such, is relieved
I from the supports of convicts; they are rendered
a source of profit railier than of tax; and very
many articles of Prison manufacture are afforded
cheaper than they otherwise would i>e. The great
Agricultural class, and other classes, forming a
laree ma jority of the People, are probably benefit?
ed nit her than injured by this system, and may say,
Why should we change ? But their reasoning leaves
entirely out of the question the rights and inter?
ests of the Minority?the Mechanics?which rmy
be completely sacrificed, their livelihood destroyed,
and thoir lumilies reduced to beggary, while the
Majority ?xj.erienees no evil whatever, but rather
The great danger of nur Politicnl system is the
incontrolled tyranny of the Majority, and the con?
sequent sacrifice of tho rights of the Minoriiy.?
Man is greedy of power an.l prone to abuse it.
Monarchy, Aristocracy and Democracy alike af?
ford -triking examples of thi* truth. Wherever
Power is vested, there wiil be temptations to per?
vert and nbuse it. The sovereign, be he one or
many, will have his parasites and flatterers. The
demagogue in a Democracy would be iho grovel?
ing sycophant in a Monarchy.
The checks on the Tyranny of the Majority are,
first, the Federal Constitution; secondly, the
Rights of the State. Kiich of these is precious,
in<! the preservation of each in it* purity and in?
tegrity is vitally important. The two ex-remes,
Consolidation anil Nullification, should be equally
a nil carefully avoided. Within each State, its own
constitution and laws must afford barriers against
the Tyranny of a Majority But all these are pat
uul and feeble : since laws may be changed and
constitutions construed at the pleasure uf the Ma.
jority. The ultimate and chief reliance must be
on the Justice. Intelligence and Patriotism of the
Majority itself. The safety of the Minority de?
mands an elevation of the standard of Virtue und
Knowledge among the many. To this end all ef
forts should be directed: here the aspirations of
the Patriot should tend.
In conclusion, Mr. S. urged that the rights ol
the Minority can only be secure where all classes
ire represented and all voices heard. This ulone
can prevent heart-burnings asid discontent ; let all
lie fairly heard, and all mnst acquiesce in the ulti?
mate decision. In fact, the due protection of the
Righls ot the Minority is but another term for the
' Equal Righ;s' and ' Equal Laws' which, it is to
be feared, are more talked of than truly eared for
or understood. Let the Majority, tken. use their
power wisely and honestly ; as men accountable to
their Country, their consciences and to God !

Texas?Harder?I-ynch Low-LaK ef ihe i
Teak um Ceng.
From lie Nstchitocbes Herald.
We have been put in possession of the facts in
relation to ibis affair, which is one among the last
Texas tragedies. The citizens of Jefferson County,
it appears, have long sutfered from their outrages :
and from their numbers and total recklessness of
character, it seemed impossible to arrest their in?
juries by the hand af civil power. Cattle had bean
stolen, robberies somnaitted. and citizens insulted
and murdered; but still, whenever any were ar?
rested on the charge, the gang came forward with
perjured oaths, and they were acquitted. 1 Yoak?
um ' was hardened iuto the most inveterate degTee
t f crime, and seemed bur to reap enjoyment by pur?
suing the most fiendish acts of robbery and murder.
It is a most ringular instance of the effects of
habit. He was a rich and atiiuent planter, and
lived in a sumptuous and most magnificent manner
?kept a stdendid equipage?owned over a hun?
dred negroes, and large tracts of land?hs.i con?
stantly about a hundred Dreeding mares : :.. ;?? :i
yearly sale of fifteen hundred cattle, and had a
largo revenue coming in from other sources. There
is no doubt but what oe was the richest man in
Texas. Yet. with all this wealth, his disposition
to plunJer knew no bounds.
The causa of his death arose from an abortive
attempt to murder Mr. Carey of Houston County.
Mr. C. is a highly respectable and wealthy citizen
of the town of Houston, and was. at the time,
staying at the residence of Yoakuna. He was sus?
pected of having a large tum of money with him.
and Yoakum determined that he should be mur?
dered while in bed. The plan was properly ma.
tured during the) day, and every thing placed in
readiness for its commission. Nothing remained
but the darkness of the night. Then the pulse had
to beat its last throb, and the coid hand of death
steal away the last expiring breath. Fortunately,
a faithful negro servant of Mr. Carey had heard of
the intended murder, and communieaed the design
to his master, in sufficient time to leave him u
chance of escape. He managed to do this, and
when sufficiently out of the reach of Yoakum made
the facts public to the citizens. The people no
sooner heard of it than they were satisfied of its
trnth: for tne good character of Mr. C. is prover?
A meeting was held, which resulted in the form?
ation of an armed corps exceeding one hundred in
number, who resolved te> dtise the whole gang out
of the county. This they proceeded to do; but, in
the mean li-ne, Yoakum beard of his plot having
keen detected, and fearing the indignation of the
people, had left his plantation, ami, in company
with some of his gang and negroes, started for the
I West- When the corps heard of this, they imme
i diately gave him pursuit. It was not long before
j they found out his route ; and, soon after, both pur
! ties met at a place called the Big Cypress, near
I Houston. Ilete a portion ot his gang resided.?
I The corps shot Yoakum and ene or two of the
I most desperate ruffians of his gang. They tken
had his negroes bound to trees, anil compelled them
to unfold the secret nets of their Inte master. (I no
of them detailed a tnost horrid ratalogue of crime.
He stated several murder* known to him that his
master had c&mmitted. Some of these wen' once
? itizen* ot the county, and their sudden disappear?
ance had always been looked upon with a suspicion
of foul play.
The corps subsequently examined hi- residence,
when these evidences of murder were fullv con?
firmed. At the bottom of an old well, human skulls
were seen, when they had no doubt been thrown
as each fresh murder occurred. Among various
other things, also, there was a watch found, with a.
stranger's name in it. This, a negro declared, br
had seen on the person of a gentleman who had
once lodged there till night. The residence ot
Yoakum is called the Pine Island, and is on the
road leading to Houston. It is a thoroughfare ne?
cessarily frequented by travelers ; at his house,
many have been compelled to stay, by the advanced
state of the day, bad weather. Ssc. until il almost
became a usual stopping place for travelers. From
these circumstances, he had ample means for car?
rying out most extensively a bloody list of tragedies.
There can be no doubt but that his fiendish tem?
perament bad its lidl sate in flesh, and has sent to
the fatal ' bourne from whence no traveler returns'
the last sad remains of many a valuable life. The
rest of the gang have fled, and now ample security
and peace exist throughout the countv.
