lowing: " We have often said, and we say cow, and
we mean to keep saying, that White county
possesses more real, 'genuine, tangible induce
ments to persons seeking a home in the West
than any county in Arkansas. We can ac
commodate the most fastidious in the article of
laod, from the beggarly elements of a pine hill
to the rich loamy cotton land in the ' valley.
And then we have any quantity of it, at any
given price, on any given terms, from cash to
to the longest credit, with or without security.
We are not alone in the opinions we bare ex
pressed. The tide of emigration Is fairly set
ting in. Mover after mover is dally arnrinz.

resnlt will be is of course asknown. The Leg
islature adjourned for two days to attend tae

not think it wiil abjeurn by Christmas."
The same paper says of the policy of sup
pressing small bank eotes :
Small Notes. There is a very geeral
move in the country ib favor of suppressleg the
issr.e and circulation of bank notes ueder five
dollars. The Alabama Legislature will, we
are confident, deprive our own banks of the
DTit'ilece of issuing men, ana win impose pen
alties agates! the circulation of those issued by

Jirived of the prinkge ef issuing under five aol

Political Judges ia 2Qislsilpl.
Ib ray last communication I undertook to
show that the opponents ef Democracy have
is this State, pretended to etxlade political con
siderations from their miode wfcea seleetisg
ofnetrs for jodicial aa miaisierial stations,
but that they have invariably supported their
political friends even when they were opposed
by rues ef superior merit and qaaliacatlon, and
that the Democratic candidates have thereby
been awst usually defeated. I proposed as a
reaeoy for this that the Democratic party
should held district and ceteaty cMveatieas fer
the purpose of making suitable Boaieatio&s for
all the offices to be filled at the Best flection,
and I prosised te show that this was not erily
right open principle but that it was eaBcUenedfshould not be affected by the marriage eeremo-
by the'practice of both Englasd and America
I shall sot go into any lengthened historical
dissertation for the purpose of proving this
proposition, but coBtent myself jivtth a state
ment of a few, simple and well known facts
It'is well knows to every one at all familiar
with English history, thatthe Lord Chancellor,
the highest legal dignitary of the realm who
hold the great seal of the kingdom, is not only
selected on aecocat of bis political opinions,
but that he is in fact a member of the Cabinet
I and erneeted to lar down his Beats and retire
from office whenever the pottticsl party to
wbieh he belong! is defeated oa any test ques
tion in parliament. For many years the Loid
CbaBcellor of England was considered the
leader of the administration .in the House of
Lords, and expected to defend all of its measures
in that body. And It is well known that Lord
Chancellor Thurlew governed the whale nation
for years with almost despotic power, and
that Lord Eldon was " the power behind the
throae greater than ie thro Re itself" for a
period of twenty-five years, aad that he even
set the seal to commfctsiea aad carried on the
government when the King was an idiot, and
the throne consequently vacant. And yet who
will question the impartiality of the decisions
of these great Chancery Judges wboss names
have became almost synonymous with equity
itself. Lord Mansfield too, was a politician
and owed bis promotion to his political views.
When the matchless eloquence of Pitt was
iRfiamiag the nation against the Hanoverian
connexions of George IL, Lord Mansfield was
placed in the House ef Cemtaoes to defend the
Administration against him. He struggled man
fully against his great riral, and claimed and re
ceived, as bis reward, the Chief Justiceship ef
England. But when be bad oace pat on the
ermine of justice, no one will dare to sty that
it was ever soiled, or even tarnished by politi
cal prejudice. So unimpeachable was bis
character, and so great was the eonfiaasce
wbieh all xan bad in bis integrity, that when
bis bouse had been burned to the ground and all
his books and manuscripts which be bad been
collecting from boyhood tbe less .of '.which
" ages yet to come snau ueara," were utterly
destroyed, by the mob in the Gordon riots, and
when be was callrdaipon to preside at tbe trial
of tbe4r leader for bigh treason, " neither jhe
prisoner, nor bis coe&jevribr bis friends, were
aJ-aM alarmed at bis fate being placed in the
hxtwla nf one. wbo hsiicfmffrAes fjinlr frnm
the ceasequencs of -the acts to be investlgs-
ted." And not only are tbe Chanttllors, Chief
Justices and Prison Judge -of England selected
whb a view In their peUtcal opinions, but tbe
Attorney and Solicitor Generals also, and it
is even carried so far that the silk gown,
which gives precedence la coast, Is seldom, if
ever conferred upon one opposed in politics to
the administration. MIence, it was that Lard
John Campbell, the present able Chief Justice
f England, was not permitted to put on a silk
gown until be was forty years ef ags, and bad
long been the leader 'of his circuit. Lord
Chancellor Bronghman, asd the late most em
inent Chief Justice Denman, are also striking
examples of men of the highest qualification's
and merit, who -were long -kept down oh ac
count of their political opinions, aBd only rose
into erarneaccwhen their party succeeded to
power. Ar James Scarlet was one af EBgland's
greatest lawyers, and yet from Ms political
principUs.be was never ptf minted to touch the
Lfitt sesl&e EagHsh lawyer's highest ambi
tion sb yet no Englishmen ever thesght all
are always men ef ability Ib every
jcffir-Lparty. capable of filliBg all tbe offices of the
Government with credit lo themselves and bon-
or to weir cowiry, aau it is wecea spoti as a
matter of course that the party is power shal

When Washington appointed Joho -Rutledge
Chief Justice, he was rejected by.a Je fetal'
majority in tbe Senatebecause be-differed wfth'
them in political principles. Asd whn. Ga
briel Duval, of Maryfand, resigned ms place
as Associate. Justice of the Supreme Court,
Roger B. Taney was nominated in his place
and virtually rejected by the Senate, which was
then greatly enraged against him on accoutt
of bis late report as Secretary otlhe Treasury.
And but recently when Mr. Badger was ap
pointed an Associate Justice by Mr. Flltmori,
a Democratic Senate refused to confirm bin,
not because they doubted his Integrity or ability,
but because they differed with him in politics,
and because they knew that there were men in
their own party equally as capable, and that
they might soon have an opportunity of being
All this was done without serious complaint,
because all men felt that It was right and pro
per, whra'there were men in both parties equal
ly competent to fill the station, that the patty
In power should select from the ranks of Us
political trjends. In addition to this, It is wIl
known that In many of the States cf our Unicn,
tbe judicial elections are begli.uicg to be made
party tests as much as any other, and it is tight.
If two men were placed before you, equally
learned in the law, and apparently equally in
telligent, and you were compelled to select one
as your counsellor and adviser in regard to your
rights, you would select that one whose judg-
meant, upon examination, coincided with your
own npon questions and principles that yoa un
derstood and about which yoa believed your
own judgment correct j and this is all that is
ment by preferring a party friend for judicial
station. I would cot rote for a Democrat be
cause I believed be would favor me more than
a political opponent in the administration of
justice, for such a man would be beaeath my
contempt, bat because I believe bis judgment
more sound on political questions than bis op
poaeBt, and this to me is prima facie tviitiyet
that his judgment will be more sound on all
other questions. With the expression of these
views, which have been spun out to a much
greater length than I anticipated, I will leave
the question, hoping that some abler hand will
take it up, and that tbe Mississippi papers will
press it until the Democracy are aroused to a
sense ot their rights, and a determination to
make nominations hereafterfor all offices po
litical, judicial and ministerial.
A XOETII MISMSSlrn DKHOCRiT;-.
To the General Assmbly aad People of
I.r tfca Meoptdi Appl.
Generally, as the mind is correctly trained
philosophically and morally, as the enlightened
and properly educated predominate over the
opposite, is there a disposition to be governed
by the principles of juttla, rather than pourr
of rij$ti, rather than night. In tbe feudal
ages, woman was considered very little abore
animals ; her position was that ot a'eerf, aad
scarcely known to the law, so little were her
rights regarded. Perhaps a great many per
sons ot the present age, who claim to be en
lightened, will be surprised on review to see
what little advancement has been made In this
proclaimed to be progressive and enlightened
age. Especially is this true in the State of
Tennessee. When a woman marries, the le
gal title to her property passes to berbusband,
asd ber richt to, or control over It, ceases. He
can immediately dispose of it without consult
ing her, as though it was tbe product of his own
toil. Is this right ? Is she not a human being
as well as be, and entitled to be regarded as
sacb? Man assumes to legislate and make
laws fer the government ot himself and also of
woman.- She acquiesces, according to the cub
torn ef the limes, believing be will do what Is
right and proper. Is it then right and proper
for him to abuse that trust, and legislate for
his own interest to the detriment ot hers? to
divert what properly belongs to ber, to bis own
legal right and control, with absolute power to
dispose ef the same?-
Suppose Mr. A. and Miss B. are born and
educated in the same neighborhood. Do not
each possess tbe same natural rights to labor
and acquire property? If so, in case of their
mirriage, why seek by legislation,bn the part
of tbe former, to re6 itr legally, of whit by
nature and justice sbeis entitled? Eaehshould
be regarded on an equality with the other, and
I their legal rights to property either may have,
ny. I believe aits is very nearly me view
takes bythe civil Iaw,bat the common law, fol
lowing up the feudal system, has made but few
ameliorations or modifications. It is time the
people of Tennessee were sweeping from their
itxtnta book these relics of feudal a?es. Still
recognized by tbe common law, and adopted IrT-
thls Stare. Be it said to the honor of tile
State of Louisiana, her people have adopted
the civil code. Mississippi, Alabama and
other States, still reeogniis thtTcommon law,"
in many respects, but have engrafted into their
statute books legislative enactments, wbicE
set at naught the common law principles, and
specially recognize the civil law principle
that which is right aad just to woman, to al
low her to own and possess ber own property,
free from the creditors of her husband, allow
ing her, of course, the privilege of appropria
ting it to the same, if she chooses to do so, or of
making other disposition of it.
Some worthy members of our Legislature
have been trying for many years to restore to
tbe women ot this State a portion ot their na
tural and civil rights, but bare been unable to
effect it, there.stlll bslngtoo much of the feu
dal Idea, that man Is ford, and woman.a second
ary being or servant. I notice that some mem
ber of our Legislature, now In session, bas in
troduced a bill to protect married women in
their rights to slave property. I hope the Leg
islature will go further, and recognize the chit
law principle; that of protecting their rights to
all property, of whatever kind or quality. Tile
law should, not advocate, encourage or recog
nize the principle of making or acquiring money
or property by marriage. So revolting is this
to human nature, that when one is deemed-to
be guilty of it, there Is an almost universal and
involuntary expression, that the mercenary one
may be disappointed.
When reason and justice are opposed to the
existing law, wby should we still retain It, oat
of respect to an aneient custom, founded in er
ror, in A less enlightened age ot tbe world,
when paver was more a governlng'prlncfple?
Oar Legislature should take hold of the sub
ject In an enlightened asd manly manner, laying
aside preconceived opiaions or prejudices, and

department of news, ublch I. would not-dis
pense with fer for three times the subscription
price, as I regard it one of the best news jour
nals in tbe South or West and this I have
beard many Enow-Nothings admit; but my
object In writing Is to hspnn.. your numerous
readers of the prospects in the Mississippi bot
tom of the cotton crop, as I think a great
mary are deceived in the amount that wM
probably be made this year. Having traveled
over a large portion of the following counties,
viz: Tunica, Coahoma, Bolivar and Washing
ten, and as I have for many years been en
gaged In raising cotton, and a close observer
of tbe crop, I feel prepared to state tbe thing
very near correctly, which oplnioca are en
dorsed by a great many of the best pUnlen ;
and from all that I have sejn -and heard, there
cannot possibly be more, than two-thirds, and,
in many instances, more than half a crop made
tbe present year, owing to lbe fact that the
cotton crop has been three or tour weeks later
jhan usual, and we commenced gathering it
least three weeks later than usual, and then it
bas rained very much this fall, wetting a large
portion of tbe under bolls ; and then add tb
ihi. ih. rrnt. which destroyed a lares nronor-
tion of the top crop, and, in consequence oSpTVould become more virtuous and the burthens
these injuries, I think you will find! am very
war correct. Bat though tbe planters are all
shipping their cotton to market, (mostly lo
New Orleans,) as fast as they can get iPread;;,
I do not think a great many are selling only
such as have liabilities to Le met immediately.
I have paid some attention to tbe reports
from other portions ot the cotton growing ri
glons, and I now estimate this year's yield at
from -2 500,000 to 2,800.000 bales, and much cf
thrs-will be very late getting to market, and

The Senate bill (23) to increase the pay of
jurors, to $1 50 a day comingiup for consid
eration on the third reading; -
Mr. Bulloch moved to strike out the word
" five " in the w iUage section.
Mr. Bayless thought mileage should not be
allowed for travel lesa than ten miles. H pro
posed to amend by allowing mlleags for over
' Mr. Davidson supported the amendment and
the views of Mr. Bulloch.
Mr. Estes was for retaining the mileage pro
vision, upon tbe principle of ustiee lis did
not insist upon mileage for tallsmen jurors.
Mr. Blackburn should oppose mileage be
cause it included tbe talisman jurors. He
thought the increase of pay of jurors fifty per
cent, (as In tbe bill) was sufficient.
Mr. Bulloch's amendment prevailed, and the
mileage was stricken out.
Mr. Baylesa' amendment was rejected.
Mr, Johnson proposed mileagefor travel over
seven miles. Mileage was as appropriate to
jurors as it was to witnesses.
Mr. Bulloch alleged that witness mileage
was wrong In principle, although there was no
similarity in these cases ihe juror getting
twice the per diem ot a witness.
Mr. Bay less supported the amendment
Mr. Johnson's amendment was rejected.
Mr. Bulloch moved now to strike out tbe en
tire section feiative tojailege.

Mr. Cooper proposed to amend the section so
that the juror shall have four cents a mile la all
Mr. Bulloch's motion to strike out tbe entire
section was carried.
Mr. Davidson made an ineffectual motion to
reconsider this vote.
Mr. Bradford proposed to amend by adding a
sections, as follows: ' '
Be it further enacted, That all jurors sum
moned in criminal cases, and who do actually
attend court, shall receive the same compensa
tion for the time they attend that other jurors
Mr. Bradford said:
Mr. Speaker: I offer this amendment be
cause I believe it contains a principle ot equal
ity and justice which cannot be violated by any
community or body politic with impunity. It
has ever been held to be a sound principle that
the burthens of Government should rest equally
upon the shoulders of every individual consti
tuting the Government, and likewise the emolu
ments or benefits of Government should be
equally distribated. But, what, I ask, has
besa tbe course pursued by the Legislature?
--- -j -.- " -
t not been to discriminate between indi-
Is wbo are called upon to serve the public
? n fnnraja nnninpn nv me iirt'Hiiiui c r
In th. ranarlHrof inrnAt? It in unneeeSSlTV
for me to say to hunorable gentlemen on this
floor, that this is so. There is no one wbo bas
attended the periodical terms of our Circuit
Courts wbo bas not heard the murmurings of
the people under tbe infliction ot this wrong,
What is tbe law as It now stands? Suits at
lir are divided Into two classes, " civil " and
"criminal." To hear and decide civil cases,
the law provides that a regular pannel should
be summoned, under penalty of a fino. To hear
and decide criminal cases, tbs la w provides that
the sheriff shall summon indiscriminately, and
without limit as to number, also under panalty
of a fine. But there is this remarkable differ
ence : those who decide civil cases get a com
pensation cf one dollar and fifty cents per day,
while those wbo are summoned to decide crim
inal cases do not get a single cent, unless they
happen to be taken on the jury. Wby, I ask,
is this discrimination? Is not tbe penalty for
non-attendance the same Are they not toe
same people? And is the object not tbe com
mon protection of all? It cannot be that tbe
criminal jury are better able to bear the loss ot
time and neglect of business than the civil
jury. Every gentleman present knows It to be
just the contrary. Tbe regular pannel are al
most invariably selected ircm those in town
and country, who are most able, In a pecuniary
sense, to bear the burthen, while tbe criminal
jurors are selected from the most distant por
tions of tbe county and are least able to bear
the burthen. And wby? Because tbe law dis
qualifies a man who has " formed or koressed
an opinion" from hearing the testimony or
tacts in the case, and these deeds ol crime al
most always occur about your county towns.
It becomes necessary, therefore, in order to
get a jury, to co to distant points, where the
facts are not known, and In so doing, It falls
upon that class of persons whose means are
limited ; for those rt ho work for a living have
not time to waste In loitering about county
towns, or riding through tbe neighborhood to
gather up news. They are, therefore, sought
for, exclusively, to try criminal cases ; thus it
is they are summoned to lave their families
and their crops, frequently at the busiest sea
son of the year, (under penalty of & fine,) to
attend day after day, and court after court, to
try some cast in which they are no mors in
terested than other members ot society. Ad-.
Jed to this, he has to feed himself andhorsa'
at his ownexpense. Now, sir, if tbey are
forced to sacrifice their time and b.iBiness for
the public good, ought not the public, which
receives protection through them, be willing to
pay at least a partof these expenses? Yet all
the while the regular pannel, wbo make no
greater sacrifice, gets ample compensation. Is
it right? Is it Just that such discrimination
be made, or partiality shown ? Nor can any
good reason be shown when we come to con
trast tbe relatire importance of maintaining
the civil or tbe criminal laws. The civil law
pertains to cases contra-distinguished from
criminal cases. Tbe criminal laws shield your
life from the assassin, your property from
thieves, and the fair name of your daughterr
rrom the unvirtuo-is. lnts, sir, is another rea
son wby I think this class of jurors should not
be made an exception to tbe general law of
compensation which applies to all other ser
vants of the public except these. Thn, sir,
if tbey are men of more humble fortune, and
are the guardians of the law which protects
your life, your property, and your virtue, wby
should tbey, under penalty of a fine, be forced
from their homes at their own expense, while
other jurors of more ample means are folly
compensated? This, sir, seems to me, is not
the equality of which the American people
boast. What excuse is offered for it ?
Honorable gentlemen say it would bankrupt
tbe State. To admit that, is to acknowledge
the Government to be only partially self-sus
taining. It is to admit that we are in favor of
class legislation Here are two juries divided
into two classes. Each man is invested with
equal sovereignty, and entitled to equal pro
tectlon: eacu summoned under penalty or a
fine, one class has Us expenses paid, the other
pays its own expenses. Istbisnotfavoritism?
Is it not class legislation? Then, Mr. Speaker,
it toe weaiin or tne county cannot atiord to
pay this class of jurors, I say It would be a
more equitable plan to create a jury fund, and
distribute it, giving earh juror of all classes,
his" pro-rata" share, and thereby maintain
tbe great American characteristic equal ben
efits and equal burthens. But we are told
again, that the patriotism of this class of
jurors should prompt them to serve the public
air, wnue i am prepared to admit mat genome
patriotism Is to be found alone among tbe
tillers of the soil and the workshops of the
country, I doubt Ihe wisdom of laying a tax
upon it to support the government, If this
principle is to be tbe basis of compensation,
why not apply it to all public functionaries?
Do not credit one class with dollars and cents
and another with lore of country. Love of
country wont feed a hungry man; nor shelter
his wire and children. Abolish all considera
tion of money from vour Governor down to
jeon3table; put all upon an equality; let the
country see in wntea cuss the patriotism ol
the nation Is to be found, I daresay, the State
L would soon be without an Executive, Ihe Cap-
noi wuuoui a legislature, ana your counties
without sheriffs or magistrates. Yes. sir, gen
tlemen say that these officials should be com
pensated in money, but criminal jurors, who fn
this sovereign capacity are peers of tbe highest
dignity of the land, shou'd work from patriot
ism. The practical effect of tbe whole sys
tem is to bring labor and wealth in antago
nism. Why, sir, I wilt tell you wby. Honorable
gentlemen with whom I have conversed say
that to pay this class of jurors would retpirie a
tax which tbe country could not bear. This,
sir, only shows what "this class have to sutler.
Here Is an amount of service rendered, which,
if paid for, even at a low price, would be more
than the whole community could bear; yet, by
not paying for it, you force one-fifth of tbe
saine.commuutly to bear it all. Should those
who leave the plough-handle and .workshops
pay it all, as they now do, or should not the
wealth of the land which Teeeivrs protection
according to value, help to pay. Thus we have
wealth and labor at war. It will ever be so
until all are willing not only to receive protec
tion according.to their mrans, but to bear tbe
burthens of government according to protection.
But do not gentlemen exaggerate as to the in
creased expense it wJl bring ? Let us examine.
In lbe nrst place, tbe sheriff, getting a fee.
goes to work to make a fortune by summoniag
twice as many as be ought to. In tbe next
place, tbe judge beln; careless or indifferent,
will have these men at tbe Court House two or
three days before tbe case is reached on the
docket and Iben upon some mere pretext by
those who wish to evade the end of the law, be
will permit thess cases to bo deferred from
court to court, a&d. year to year. But, air, I
propose to put anrnd bo all this laxity and in
difference. Make all clashes ot tbe community
feel the burthen of these expenses, and you get
up a pUDIlr sentiment wDlcli would read these
careless officials a lesson that would brine them
within a strict and economical exercise of their
powers, which would save the country from
much anxiety and expense.
Moreover, let tbe wealth and virtue of
the land In this way feel the weight ef tbe
crime in their midst, and they willAuaf tt dom,
tot crime withers nnder an aroused public In
dignation. This being accomplished, society
ui government jesi ante upon an. ii was never
intended cy tne trainers or our constitution,
either State or Federal, that tbe machinery of
this government should be worked for nothing.
Tbe President gelsiwentr-five thousand dol
lars; members of Congress three thousand;

members of this body get four dollars per day,
tbe clerks of this House six dollars per day,
and there stands two fine looking door-keepers

wbieh stands to guard, as sentinels, the lives,
the property, and the fair names of your
daughters, are required under penalty of a fine,
to lose their time and to pay their own expen
ses, for the public good. Every class of inter
est seems to be protected butthe laboring class.

Mr. Newman ealdt I fully concur In the
views and opinions expressed by tbe gentleman
from Haywood (Mr, Bradtordj Irt regard to
tbe pay of jurors, summoned to attend our
courts la criminal cases. Various persons are
summoned, and that by tbs order of the court.
Those summoned are generally unable to lose
the time front home. Their dally "avocation
require thai they should loss but Ilttla time,
but your courts require them to stop everything
and come Into court, to be asked tbe question,
" whether they hare formed or expressed an
opinion In regard to the guilt or Innocence" of
some scoundrel. Now, sir. ray opinion Js' they
should be rewarded, and tie property ot our
counties should pay for .their, lime, as justly re
marked by my friend f r6m Haywood. Gentle
men opposed to this amendment contend that
the cos: wilt be too great. But, air, this ar
gument of cost says, in effect, that tbe labor
inr men of tht country shall bear all tbs bur-
thins and the wealthy none In these particu
lar rases. Therefore, believing that this
amendment Is right in principle, and demanded
by tbe law of common justice, to those per
sons wbo have to leave their homes, to "dance
attendance around our courts," I shall, for one,
most cneerruuy gir it my support.
Mr. Richardson alleged that these men were
not jurors, till they were brought into ths pan..
net. It were as reasonable to pay the elec
tioneering expenses ot an office-seeker, as to
pay a juror before lie is repaired to serve,
Mr. Bradford replied and said :
Mr. Speaker: The distinguished gentleman
from Rutherford (Mr. Richardson) runs an
analogy between tbe office-seeker and the
juror. Sir, there is co analogy. The pollti
dan seeks office without: compulsion. Thi
juror is summoned nnder penalty of a fine. It
is a matter of choice with the politician. If
the juror refuses, it Is at his peril. If this Is
the strongest argument gentlemen can make,
they should support the amendment. My ven
erable friend from Madiion (Mr. Bulloch)
says it would bankrupt th country. Then be
admits that there is an amount of labor Ipst
which. If paid for. would creak a whole coun
try. No iv, I will ask him: Should the few
men wbo bear this enormous burden make the
entire sacrifice, or should not the wealth of tbe
country bear a portion of It? He says I must
have been in k hot place when I took this post'
tlon at Dome. I reply, tpat he will be in
hotter position when he goes back and meets

It will be remembered that a few days ago,
a diii passed uie noose io incorporate a Turn
pike Company In Wilson countv. containing a
clause making tbe stockholders individually
liable for tbe debts of the company. Tbe next
day a bill came from the Senate to Incorporate
a aeiegrapu company witnout suen clause.
The House inserted an amendment to Senate's
bill to that effect. The House's bill eomlnir un
in the Senate, Mr. Walkerlnoved to strike out-J
the individual liability clause, and tbe follow
ing discussion ensued. We have the report
from the bands ot a gentleman, .wbo was pre
sent, and It is, doubtless, substantially correct:
Mr. Walker moved to strike out the personal
II.-l-r.izA i a . 1 .
iiaoimy ciause, in me last section ot the bill.
He was opposed to sueh restrictions upon such
propositions, and be desired to test the sense
or the benate on that question. The present
nmr was as opportune tor mat purpose as any
It was suggested that It was usual to allow
an diiis to pass the first time without objection.
Mr. Walker thought the Senate might as
well dispose ot the Question at once. He
thought this restriction impolitic and unneces
sary. He could not see why a community of
iiciouuD, uo uau joinea a portion or their
means to build a. neighborhood, turnpike for
meir own convenience, should be belli respon
slble in all Ume to come for whatever llablli
ties might, under any and all circumstances,
arise. For Illustration, take a telegraph com
pany, whose stockholders, for the benefit of the
community in general, and the convenience and
easement of tbe great commercial interests of
tbe country, bad or desired to construct a line
ot t'legraphic communication from Memphis
to New Orleans. It those who had subscribed
twenty, fifty or any greater or less sum were
to be made individually liable to the extent ot
bis property, for all liabilities which might
accrue from apy cause, would they would not
every prudent man so subscribing withdraw
bis stock ? Would there be any such improve-
men's or puouc easements?
Every sensible man knows that It Is n'eces
eary to Incorporate these companies, tn order
mat a irgai remedy may be had in case ot fail
ure oi the part or such corporations to fulfill
their contracts. Bat tbey issue no bills of
credit no representatives of currency. Why
tnen impose upon mem sucn stringent regula
He was aware that it was not parliamentary
to sneak of the course pursued bv the House
ot Representatives upon this or any other'o'ies-
non, ana lie uia noi cesire io say anyuung dis
respectful of the actions of that body. It was
well known, however, that an attempt bad been
made to set down this principle as a tenet of
Democratic faith. He did not recognize the
right of any man or set of men to make any
question a test of Democracy w bich is not laid
down ss cardinal doctrine in tbe established
platform of tbe Democratic party.
Mr. Travis did not kaow that politics bad
anvtbin? lo.do with the nuentlon whether it
was Democracy, Whiggery or Americanism,
be cared not. Of this be was satisfied ; let it
oe waai u may, oe was lor me principle, be
cause be thought justice and right demanded it.
He was opposed to striking the clause from tbe
Mr. Davis offered aa amendment in lieu of
the section providing that tbe mechanics' lien
shall apply where persons bad performed work
for these corporations. He was opposed to the
clanse as Its stood beeausebe believed it would
work an injury to tbe building of turnpike
roads. Hs thought that those wbo were at
tempting to make this question a party test,
were carryinjne jaxe or Democracy a little
too far. ' "
Mr. Walker did not se tbe justice of making
men liable to tbe extent of their property be
cause they bad subscribed a small amount for
the rurtheranct or a work or public convex
fclence. Tbe effect ot this proposition, if adopt.
eorporations gotten npon for the purpoie of
speculation ana prom to me stocvnoi'iers, me
application of, tbe principle might be made
with some show of reason, but to telegraph
lines andj.urnplke roads, literary societies, or
churcheslb which special privileges are grant
ed, it seemed to him that this application was
manifestly out of place. His course here would
be 'to represent; so far as he was able to do so,
the will of bis constituents on all questions
earning- upf or consideration, and it did not mat
ter to him whether or. not It was ia'aeecrdance
or IncppciiUoa to the behests of. those claim

course. Where the interests of bis constit
uents or tbs SUte demanded, the. action of bis
judgment, be should exercise it with freedom.
Ills people sent blm there to carry out their
wishes. He was alone responsible to them.
He hoped tbs motion to strike out would pre
vail. Mr. Travis said that although be did not
claim this question as a party test, be oust be
allowed to say that It suited bis Decracy.
He believed that corporations, like Individuals,
ought to nay their debts, and when they incur
red llabilhles.if they did notroeetthemprompt
ly, like Individuals, tbey should be forced to do
so. Hs was opposed to tbe amendment of tbe
Senator from Marshall (Mr. Davis) because
bethought it would amount to nothing at all.
Suppose a creditor sues and obtains judgment,
and an order to sell Is obtained wbo is going
to buy a turnpike or any portion of It 7 Sup
pose, Sir. these corporations contract debts and
become insolvent, what remedy has the cred
itor? None In the world, unless you make tbe
property cf the individual stockholder liable
for the debts of the company. He believed that
every consideration of honesty, fairness and
justice dtminded tbe security contained la tbe
, Mr. Menees bad observed tbe course ot this
debate with some interest. He did not wish to
consume the lime of the Senate, bnt he desired
to state bis position j and be would say now
that upon this and all other ques'Jocs bis ac
tion would be governed by what be believed to
be right, and it to be a Democrat required bis
sanction to whatever new issue might oe sprung
upon mm, wneiaer n aeeoruea wiiu mi views
and the public Interest or no', then be was no
Democrat. His allegiance to Democracr.how
ever, bad never been questioned, be claimed to
be a good Democrat he rejoiced atthcauccess
of bis party, and was gratified to know that
that party was In tbe aseendency in the State.
He warned gentlemen against declaring sueh
Issues as this. Democratic doctrine. He was
fearful that the result would be disastrous to
tbe party, and be looked upon sueh an attempt
as imprudent and unwise. He should oppose
any ana an attempts or this character ana
should vote to strike tbe clause out.
Mr. Heiskell rose to make a motion, and,
Mr. Speaker Burch suggested that this was
not a "free fight."

tea very much to Interrupt a discussion wJiicn
he enjoyed so much, and which bad affurded so
much amusement to bis side of tbe House. He
had always looked upon Democracy as a joke
and was glad to hear the gentleman from Mar
shal (Mr. Davis) call It so and be was will
ii g to have the joke carried on at a proper time,
but did not fancy the less of bis dinner for a
mere joke acknowledged on all hands. If gen
tlemen on tbe other side desired to play out the
pjay be would move an adjournment, that be
might enjoy tbe revival of it to-morrow. But
if an immediate vote was desired be would
withhold the motion until tbe vote was taken.
The vote was taken and tbe clause stricken

And. the bill then passed.
The Mississippi Legislature did cot adjourn
without endorsing In the most emphatic and
unqualified manner, the resoiutiois censuring
and denouncine; Gov. Robert J. Walker, passed
by the Convention of tbe Democracy of the
State, held at Jackson In June last. The Leg
islature not only did not lower tbe standard
raised by tbe Democracy at the commencement
of tbe late canvass; but it west further and
declared that the censure which bas been visit
ed upon Walker, will be Justly applicable to
tbe Administration of Mr. Buchanan, if he
approves and sustains tbe coaduct of bis
The resolutions as first offered in the Senate
by Mr. Fettus, tbe able presiding officer of
that body, embraced tbe Administration in tbe
censure pronounced, without qualification or
reservation. In this form tbey were ably and
eloquently sustained by tbe mover of tbe res
olutions, and bj Messrs. Drane of Choctaw,
and Oliver of Ds Soto. Mr. West of Holmer,
proposed to amend tbe resolution so as to in
clude the action of the Keow-Nothin; Con
vention cf the State beld in July, but bis
amendment being rejected, be was excused
from votig. Mr. Davis, (K. N ) of Panola,
was also excused. Messrs. Ettett of Clai
borne, and Bradford, fully approved the reso
lutions censuring Walker, i-ut earnestly and'
cogently argued the justice cod propriety of
suspending tbe verdict again.'t the President
until opportunitv Is afforded blm of avowlBC or
disavotving'ih.bis annual message soon to be
delivered, the criminal acts of Walker.
For the sake of harmony tbe resolutions
were amended to suit the latter views ; and
were adopted wltb but four dissenting voices'.
In the House, tbe resolutions n-iterating the
June platform, ia relation to Walker, were
adopted without a die tenting voice.
The resolutions relating to the President,
elicited a warm discussion. Messrs. Davis
(Democrat) of Monroe; Saffold (Democrat)
of Harrison; Johnson (Democrat) of Carroll;
Martin (K. N.) of Yallobusba ; Soutbworth
of Sunflower ; and Anderson (K. N.) of Hinds;
were not satisfied with the last resolution, on
the ground that the President by retaining
Walker,bad signified bis approval of his course
and that be therefore deserved to be censured
without awaiting further developments. Mr.
Cushman (Democrat) of Lafayette, argued
that the resolution in its present shape implied
a condemnation of tbe President, and that
justice required that be should have a hearing
oeiore ue is conaemneu., air. opeaKer .Harry
of Lowndes; Mr. Parks (Democrat) of Talla
hatchie ; Mr. CUpp (Democrat) of Marshall ;
and Mr. Thompson (Democrat) of Chickasaw,
arguea in ravor or tne resolution.
Ob the final vote, it passed by a majority of
two to one some voting against it because it
did not go far enough (among th somber, Mr.
rattlson, or uiaiDorr.e,) and others oo the
ground stated by Mr. Cushman, that it was
proper to express no opinion ia relation to tbe
course of tbe President until it is clear thaf
the conduct of Walker bas received bis ap
proval. Un the main issue there was no conflicting
opinion in eimer OTancn or me legislature.
All united in approving tbe action of tbe De
mocratic Slate Convention all coincided in tbe
conviction that Walker had, violated tbe non
intervention principles of the Kansas bills
and that he had progressed from one grade of
criminality to another, from tbe enunciation of
his "isothermal" decree against the South and
his insolent declaration to tbe Constitutional
Convention, to his arbitrary usurpation of the
authority of tbe Territorial Legislature to de
cide upon the validity of the election- of its
own members, and his rejection nf the pro
slavery delegates. All united in the convic
tion that if the President d. ei ndt clear bis
skirt of tbe criminal acts : if he does not dis
avow mem as un warranted. Dy nta instructions
and unsistalned by his approval hs deserves
the same meajares of denunciation which bas
been poured in bitter torrents upon the eniltv
bead of Gov. Walker.
The only question of difference related to the
time when this verdict should be pronounced.
Some, said, the case is already made out the
proof-establishing the complicity of the Ad
ministration with Walker, in the perpetration
of these weighty wrongs upon the South is
already clesr ; others argued in favor of a sus
pension of tbe sentence until further opportu
nity is afforded tbe President to vindicate his
Administration from fo damning an act of
treachery to the Coastitution, ana fraud upon
the States which in the Presidential election
generously gave him their confidence and sup
PI adus has the Mississippi Legislature, speak
ing in tones of thunder, in the name of the
sovereign people it represents, vindicated the
action of the Democratic Convention and
nailed as base coin to tbe counter, the calumny
that the Convention acted prematurely and did
not reflect the public will ; and more than all,
thus have tbe Democracy of Mississippi un
seduced by its corrupting patronage unmoved
bv the suggestions of cowardice again vindi
cated their devotion .to their rights and their
cherished doctrines, and proclaimed tr the
men in power and out of power to all tbe
world that they will follow no lead which
