The August elections for the year com.
menoe with North Carolina and Tennessee,
Thurf4ay, August 2.
In North Carolina only members of Con,
grew are to be chosen. In that State the
elections for Governor and members of the
Legislature are held in different years from
those of members of Congress. The elec
tions for State officers wereheld last year.
North Carolina is entitled to eight Repro
sentatives, who were in the last Congress,
classified under the old division of parties
as ve Democrats and three Whigs, count.
ag Mr. Cligmp as a Democrat, because
he acted during that Congress, and in the
late Presidential election against the'Whigs.
On the Nebraska bill the vote of North
Carolina was six yeas to two nays. One
of the nays, Mr. Puryear, is a candidate
for reelection on the American ticket.
The lines are thoroughly drawn in every
district of the State, and candidate on each
side, Demoerutei and American.
In Tennessee, the elections are general
for Governor, Legislature, and ten members
of Congress. The Know Nothing candi
date for Governor is M. P. Gentry. On
the Demoerotio side, the incumbent, Andrew
Johnson, is candidate for reelection.
In the last Congress the Tennessee del
egation was divided politically-six Whigs
and four Democrats. The line is drawn
closely for the election to morrow between
Democrat and Know Nothing, in every
distriot, and the excitement is represented
to be unexampled.
General elections for Governor, the Leg
islature, and Congress come off next Mon
day in the States of Alabama, Texas and
Kentucky. In all these the party divisions
are Democrat and Know Nothing, although
in Alabama they have a platform of Know
Nothiugism, independent of the Philadel
phia organization. In Alabama the candi
dates are John A. Winston, (Democrat)
the present Governor, and Judge George
W. Shortridge, IKnow Nothing.) In the
last Congress there were six Democrats
and one Whig, and they gave a unanimous
vote in favor of the Nebraska bill
In Texas the candidates for Governor are
Gov, E. M. Pease, the present incumbent,
and David C. Dickson, (Know Nothing.)
The two members from Texas voted for the
Nebraska bill. In Texas a popular vote
is also to be taken on the question of accept
ing or rejecting the bill passed by the last
Congress for adjusting the Texas debt.
In Kentucky the elections are also gen
eral. The Democratic candidate is Bever
ley S. Clarke; the Know Nothing candidate
is Charles S. Morehead. In the last Con
gress the Kentucky delegation was equally
divided, five Democrats and five Wligs.
On the Nebraska bill the Kentucky vote
was unanimously in the affirmative. The
opposing candidates are Democrat and

We have reoolved through J. . Montgomery of
Jackson, from the publisher,- Bohn of Washinton,
D. C. a most elegant steel engraved likeness of the
Hon. Henry A. Wise. Governor elect of the noble
Commonwealth of Virginia. No one has done more
to stay the tide of Know Nothlngism In the United

one of the most illustrious champions, of political
and religions freedom, in this or any other country.
His portrait shounl be hung up in every house,
that our children may look upon It, and learn from
his character, to imitate his noble example, in up
holding truth, Justice and right, against error. oun

at Washington, D. C. by enclosing 25 cents to the
publisher who wil forward It by mail.

cy occasioned by the resignation of E. T. Merrick.
On Thursday last, the delegates assembled at the
College Chapel in the town of Jackson to make a
nomination for Judy of the Seventh Judicial Dis
triot, to supply the place of the lion. E. T. Merrick,
transferred to the Supreme Bench. The lion Cyrus
Ratliff of West Fellelana was chosen by acclamation,
and being called for, made one of his best political
Mr. Ratliff, said that if elected to the honorable
position to which his fellow citizens, in their par
tiality, had assigned him, he should be Judge of the
district and not of a political party His aim should
be to administer impartial justice to all. The rich
and the poor, would stand upon the same level. He
should know no man on account of his religious
opinions, or place of birth. But notwithstanding
hi s determination to be an imparts al Judge, yet he
was a democrat and should ever be ready to defeo nd
and promote tlrinciples of the democratic party.
Our preseut greatness and prosperity was owing to
the democratic construction of the Constitution,
and principles proclaimed by Mr. Jefferaou, while
President, and acted upon ever since by the demo
oratic party. He then took up know nothingism,
and handled Sam, with gloves off, for about one hour
and a half. There were a few k. n's. present, and
we venture to say, they feel the full force of the
truthful exposition of the dangerous doctrines and
tendencies of the order.
Hle was followed by young Mr. W. J. Lacy, of Bat
on Rouge, for about three quarters of an hour, in a
chaste, logical, and eloquent address. His remarks
were clear, forcible, and abundantly supported by
reference to facts. When he concluded, theconven
tion adjourned sine die. The members then by invi
tation, repaired to Mr. Tuadvine's residence, and
partook of a most excellent dinner which the gcn
erous hospitality of the democracy of Jackton, had
provided for the occasion.
Reaction begun In Earnest.
Nineteen persons, highly respectable and intelli
gent, have signed a card of withdrawal from the
dark lantern, alias know nothing organization in
West Feliclana. Nine others, it is understood have
withdrawn. The work goes bravely on. If truth did
not have its proper offect in producing these results,
when fairly presented as it was done at Whittaker's
spring, in West Fellciana, and in Point Coupee, by
our able standard bearers, we should almost despair
of man's capacity to govern himself. We subjoin
their card and call upon whigs and democrats eve
rywhere to go and do likewise.

J Ame Rosn.ºLo,
The Railroad Meeti g.
Bear in mind, that Saturday nex Orst publio
meeting of the friends of the Branch Rail-road sl to
be held, and come prepared to promote the work by
every honorable exertion.
The work may be procrastinated; it may be that a
year or two, may yet elapse before this enterprise
can be given such an impetus as will furnish the
people a guarantee of its completion, but let not
these delays and untoward circumstances cause any
despondency. The road must be built. It is the
great public necessity of this region of country. It
holds out Inducements to every Interest and every
class of soeiety, too powerful to be long disregarded.
On Saturday next, we ,hope its advocates will as
semble here, and by their action give the movement
shape and dlretion, leaving to the future to develope
in full the mrsece power, which once obtained, and
skilfully and economically applied, will yet give us
this much needed road.
We are Informed that a charter, under the provis
Ions of the act of 1852, has been drawn up, needing
merely the formalities of signatures, recording and
publication for thirty days, in order to place the
stockholders In position to elect a Presidet and
Board of Directors, and thus to realise the advanta
ges of erganization.
The advantages of organization in promoting the
progress of any work of public utility, are such that
they should not be overlooked, nor Indeed can they
be .safely neglected. A corporate body, though it
may represent a limited number of stochoolders and
spars subscription for its shares, yet may acquire
rights and p. Ivileges under its charter to enable It
to do much that individual enterprise cannot ascom"
plish. For instance, suppose that one hundred thou
sand dollars for stock subscription can be obtained.
It is but a fifth amount of the capital stock, and
does not even furnish a sum, sulicently respectable,
to warrant the company to commence cutting out
the line of the road, yet, it is a nucleus, around
which future operations can be based, looking stead
Ily and hopefully to its augmentation, and such a
subscription will enlist a sumelent number of Indi
viduals, and a suficient quantity of capital, to ren
der necessary the formalities of incorporation, and
the election of oficers of the company.
Our advice then is, that at the meeting, the charter
should be signed, and all the preliminary steps taken
to secure a good working charter and in due time a
Board of Directors and other officers of the company.
In their hands a regular set of books can be placed;
the interests of individuals will assumo a corporate
shape. Steps can be taken to obtain from the Legis
lature a perpetual and more comprehensive charter,
better suited to the especial wants of the company,
and above all a rallying point will be obtained to
which not only the friendly efforts of individuals may
be directed, but from which much of concentrated ex
ertion, may be brought to bear upon the destinies of
the enterprise. No one need have any scruples in
signing the Charter, the mere act of signature binds
them to nothing in the event that the work cannot
be undertaken for want of sufeicient means to com
The field from whence it is expected to glean fur
ther resources, affords, we are sanguine, a vast resid
lum of unemployed means, consisting of capital,
labor, and materials, which will need'perseverance
and Industry to draw them to the promotion of the
work; but in the end all these resources will be
drawn in to the aid of it. So we counsel the friends
of this most isaportant enterprise to go on steadily
and earnestly, keeping in view the immense results
which will surely fow from the completion of their
labor, and disregarding any and all apparent causes
for despondency. All enterp rises must have a begin
ning, and this one, though its beginning may be small
and insignificant in proportion to the magnitude of
work to be undertaken, yet assuredly poesueses all
the elements which are neccessary to command the
public favor, and secure for it ultimately all the suc
cess asked for it by its warmest friends.

The object for which the Convention had assombled,
was explained by the presiding oflcer.
He was pleased, he said, to see the assembly be
fore him, composed as it was, of repr esentatives
from every portion of the two parishes, from the wa
ters of the Amite, to the hills of Tunlea. He was
pleased to see them. They had come there to act
as the democracy !ad always acted, to choose, open.
ly, fearlessly-and in the broad glare of day, a man
to nill thejudiclal seat of thbo 7th District. They In
tended to make no recommendation, but a nomina
tioa, wflh would be to the Democracy and all oth
er parties, an endorsement of the fitness and eapeC
ity of the individual whom they presented for their
sffrage. It was, he repeated, with great satisfac
tion, that he thus witnessed, the interest taken, and
their action therein thus openly avowed.
Upon the conclusion of his remarks, the following
resolutions, were offered by Bythell Haynes, Esq.,
which were adopted by acclamation:
Resolved That we advocate the election to the high
est, as well to the lowestjudicial offices in the state,
men who will administer equal and impartial justice
to every class of their fellow citizens, without re
gard to their politicalopinlouns, religious senutiments,
or place of birth.
Resolved, That believing the eon. Cyrus Ratliff,
to be'such a man, and in other respects, fully quali
fied for the omee of District Judge of the Seventh
Judicial District, we hereby nominate him, by accla
mation for said office and pledge ourselves to use all
honorable means to secure hb election.

for, was introduced to the conventioar
Iio was too old a stager, to say, that he felt em
barrassment, but he would may, that on this occasilon
he was embarrassed. It was on account of the kind,
cordial, friendly, and unanimous feeling, with which
they had nominated him as the candidate for Judge
of the seventh Judicial District. If elected to that
position, he would be the judge, neither of the rich,
nor the poor, the native or foreign born citizen ;
no favorite should ,have his ear,-but that he would
administer the laws of the land, so help him God,
without favor or affection, and with even handed

Watcllman I What of the Night !
The canvass is opened. The democratic nomi.
nees are in the field. This is what we want, Truth
fairly presented to the public mind never fails to
win The people are honest, and will do right.
They are sometimes led astray by cunning and ar
tlifce, but the sober secoud thought is sure to bring
them right again. At the barbecusesand public speak
log in West Feliclana antd Point Coupee, we learn that
quite a number came out and declared their inten
tion no longer to act with, the know nothings, but
to take their stand in the democratic ranks. They
now see how they were deceived, and led into error,
and are determined to retrace their steps at once.
This will he the case all over the state, as the can
vass progresses. Everywhere the democratic lead
ers invite free discusslon. and ask their opponents
to meet them in fair discusslon before the people.
Armed with the panoply of truth, justice and right,
they fear not, but boldly and fearlessly challenge
ivestigation, and earnestly destir their know noth
ing opponents to meet them in debate. It will nev
er do'for the know nothing leaders to back out. If
they do, it will be proof positive that their cause is
a bad one. and that their principles and policy will not
bear investigation. A good cause always loves to be
known. It is upon this it relies for success. Bad
principles and a bad cause, shun'investigation.
They fear the light. Mystery and secrecy suit them
better. Persecution and intolerance can never be
successfully defended before a generous and en
lightened audience. The managers know this, and
hence their secret meetings, their stringent obliga
tions and their inquisitorial councils. They prefer
to hold their members by oaths, and threatened de
nunclations, rather than by truth and reason. By
the power of secret obligations, and a secret polit
ical machinery spread throughout the Union, mana
ged and controled by a grand council as their su
preme head, do they expect to manage and govern
the political affairs of this great, free, and powerful
republic. These things are becoming every day so
manifest, that the;public mind is becoming impatient
for publicity and will force the nominees of the or
der to come before the public and discuss their
principles and measures in open day. The people
of this nation are.too intelligent, long to suffer them
solves Imposed upon by the cunning and craft of dis
appointed office seekers, and wire pulling doma
gogues who manage and govern the councils, for
their own ambitious ends. The people will not suf
for an Irresponsible cabal, at the north or anywhere
else to dictate to them whom they will support, for
political office, whoa they know by so doing, they
surrender their freedom, and become mere machines
in the hands of the designing few. No caucnous dic
tation was ever equal to such as this. It is king
caucus in its worst form, responsible to no body.
These things the democratic nominees are determin
ed shall be exposed before the country. The people
shall know what the knesw nothings are doing, and
what they are aiming at. The canvass is begun.

this exclusive power to organize the Fire Company,
and who notified as far as they ould, the subserihers
to the purchase of the fire engine. to attend that
meeting, at which they were going to organise a

scribers, living on the public square, that they bad
no suoh notification, and the first Intimation they
had of It was the general expressed indignation at
the rejection of certain foreign born subscribers for
" A sussber Q fordgners were admilted in aordemnes

that a certain number only of foreigners were ad.

not that proscription?

voted against the foreign born subscribers at the

the amende honorable.
In regard to the slur intended in the Postscript,
" Looker on" is Informed that we are no Yankee,

Philadelphia Platform Repudiated.
Since the adjournment of the Philadelphia know
nothing convention, and the secession of the nort -
ern delegates therefrom, state conventions of the
know nothing, or American party, have been held
in Penusylvania, Indiana, Ohio and Massachusetts,
in each of which strong abolition grounds have been
taken. Repeal of the fugitive slave law, restoration
of the Missouri cQmpromise, prohibition of the slave
trade between the states, and resistance to any more
slave states coming into the Union is most emphat
ically declared. They repudiate the Philadelphia
platform of the southern know nothings, and seemo
determined to push their anti-slavery tactics and
measures to extremes. They seem determined not
to act with the south unless they can dictate the terms.
Will southern men submit? Will they not rather,
look to southern interests, and save the Union, by
acting with the democratic party. They can do no
thing themselves, even !fEsuecessful, as their northern
brethren have a majority of the electoral vote. They
can only defeat the democratic party in the south,
by keeping up a separate organization, but they can
never do more. They are powerless without north
ern aid. Do they want it 'on such terms as recent
events manifestly shows would bhe ruinous to south
ern Interests. We believe but for party pride, and
selfish ambition, the know nothings south would take
their stand at once, and act with tihe democrats, to
stay the mad ambition of northern fanatics, and
demagogues. Will they do so? Many will, we con
