On Thursday night next, the 23d,
at the Court House in this city, a

Col. W. J. Sykes, of Memphis, and
several distinguished citizensof this
city will address the meeting. The
Court room will be made comforta
ble, and every man interested in the
future of Jackson should be in at
tendance. Great railroad lines are
now projected in this direction, and
it behooves our citizens to awake to
the importance of the hour. If
Jackson would achieve her proper
destiny, if she would rise in a few
years to the rank of a great eity,
now is the accepted time for her
people to act. Let everybody turn
out on Thursday night, and make
this meeting in numbers and enthu

The Klectioa far Mayor.
On the 6th day of January next,

Dunaway, as a candidate for that
office. Col. Dunaway is no novice
in the management of our city af
fairs, having served ia the office of
Mayor during the year 1870; and it
is no disparagement to others to
say that Jackson never had a more
enterprising, public spirited and
liberal Mayor than he made. His
devotion to the interests of the city
was sleepless and untiring. Under
his administration greater improve
ments were made in the streets and
thoroughfares than under any ad
ministration that preceded it, and

On Saturday last Col's Sykes and
Miller, of Memphis, and Mj. Hurt
of this city, addressed the people
of Denmark on the subject of build
ing the Jackson and Memphis Rail
road. Col. Sykes made ouo of his
happiest efforts, and his splendid
speech was received with unmeas
urcd applause. Got. Miller's re
marks were brief, but to the point.
Maj. Hurt spoke for half an hou
with foreo and eloquence, and in
conclusion assured tho people
Denmark that Jackson was in earn
est, and would do her whole duty
when called on. The stock book
was opened at the conclusion of the
speaking, and over ten thousand
dollars promptly subscribed. The
people of Denmark and vicinity are
enthusiastic on the subject, and
leading citizens authorize us to say
that they will swell the ten to sixty
thousand dollars within the next
two weeks. A great through line
from Memphis to Jackson, and
thence East to Nashville and Knox
ville, is the ambition of the people
of Denmark, and to that end they
are now contributing their money.
Whiteville, Centerville and Fayette
Corner, and in fact the whole coun
try along the proposed Jackson and
Memphis road are alive and taking
stock liberally. To all, far and
near, we say that Jackson will do
her whole duty. Let all remember,
that to carry out any great under
taking to a successful issue, unity
of purpose, industry of action and
wise liberality are necessary. All
great undertakings encounter obsta
cles, and this one will have to con
tend with ignoranco, envy, jealousy
and selfishness. They look quite
formidable, at a first glance, but
perseverance and a steady confi
dence in our cause will certainly
triumph. Our motto, all along the
line should be work, undisturbed by
the brainless babblings of the self
ish or disappointed, or the ignorant
or penurious. Tho country needs
this road it will be a great road
it will begin somewhere and end
somewhere it makes great connec
tions it must be a grand trunk
line, and a people with a prospect of
such a road, who will fritter away
their means iu a vain attempt to
construct a little branch road with
out connections, deserve the fate of
the disconsolate "Sally" who never
got married at all. Every friend of
tins great line must work with vim,
if the scheme is to succeed. Jack
son will do all that it required of
her, and our confidence in the wis
dom and 'liberality of the people
along tho wholo line is unbounded.
Taxation II If b ar Law!
The Legislature now in session
has a most delicate and difficult task
before it, in fixing the rate of taxa
tion on the part of the State for the
next two years. There is not a cit
izen of Tennessee who would more
gladly sec the present rate of taxa
tion greatly reduced thau we; and
yet there is no one more anxious to
maintain the credit of tho State and
tho honor of her people, than we
are. If the Legislature, to whom
the whole question belongs for set
tlement, can greatly reduce the rate
of taxation without at the same
time depreciating the State credit,
we hope they will do it. Low taxes,
however, we might as well say,
would meet a hearty response from

We have on hie, for Insertion in

article on the subject of the railroad
from Jackson to Huntingdon. There
can be no doubt about the early
completion of this road. The neces

Nashville has a vital interest in its
early completion. If Nashville de
sires to cultivate the West Tennes

A year or two hence, the road from
Evansville, Indiana, will be com
pleted, direct to this city, and then
instead of being able to command a
large portion of the trade of West
Tennessee. Nashville will have to
work bard and sue humbly foi even
a small portion of it.
Now is the time for Nashville to

The following comment by the
Cincinnati Commercial on the late
elections we especially direct to
those who may still believe that the
Democracy can bost carry the North .
by advocating the principles which
the North has a half dozen times
emphatically repudiated :
Whatever mistakes the Republi
cans make in policy or administra
tion, or however they quarrel among
themselves, the Democrats seem not
only to be incapable of taking the
obvious advantage, but manage to
do something so foolish or disrepu
table that a victory over them be
The old .Democratic learders are :
utterly at sea. They have lost their
wits, and their campaigns have but
piled disaster on disaster. Ava
A Cltixen Asaasiaated sjr a Negrro.
Thursday evening last, about 8
o'clock. Mr. Elias King, a young far
mer living 8 miles Northwest of
Brownsville-, was murdered by a ne
gro who lived on his place. Just af
ter tea he was sitting in his parlor
with his wile reading when tbe nend
fired through the window, lodging
a heavy charge of buokshot in his
body. He never spoke, but drop
ped dead on the sofa. His wife escap
ed narrowly, a shot passing through
her dress, ine negro leit tne gun
went to the stable and mounting a
fleet horse, made good his escape.
Parties went in pursuit but railed to
Pat It OatetSlfnt FsrtTsr.
The public printiusr question has
become an intolerable nuisance.
The people are weary of the subject,
and we hereby instruct our agent at
Nashville to send us no more dis
patches about the printing investiga
tion, une legislature lias spent
more money in higgling over the
public printing than the amount
proposed to be saved is worth.
Messrs. Jones, Purvis & Co. are
honorable men, and the time wasted
in nosing out ana trying to save a
few fips to the State could have
been more profitably employed in
ascertaining how many millions of
bonds have been issued by frand,
swindling and in utter violation ot
law. We have had enough of this
cy. The legislature cannot replen
ish the depleted coffers of the btate
by stopping the little printing spi
got, while the people's money is
pouring through the bondholder's
sieve. Again we express the hope
that the curtain will soon fall upon
the printing investigation, tha most
extravagant farce ofthe century.
The principal actors should retreat
before the storm of hisses and the
shower of execrations which their
folly has provoked. From its inita-ti-ii
to its end, it was not marked
by a single incident, so far as the
prosecution was concerned, which
was calculated to give it the least
diuit v. It was mean, malicious, ins
ruant and contemptible, from AJ-
p'ia to Omega. Since the rcpart ofj
the committee, exonerating Purvis,
Jones & Co. from all the charges
made against them, the detestable
and barHod Gibson, of the State Sen
ate, like an owl disturbed by the
ravs of the rising sun, has becu
hooting and blinking at the report.
