F rum which it would appear* that the average'val uation of realty in Mississippi is only’a fraction oyer three dollars ptr acre. New Mississippian *of the IGiIi: To the bill pending in the House on the prevention of the introduction of obscene literature, etc, into the State of Mississippi, Mr Rowan (of Copiah) offered the following amendment: “That all news* papers published in the Slate be plac’d undet like restraint.’ What paper was the Doctor striking at ? A Wesson special of the 15th, to the Times Democrat, says: A gin horse and about forty bales of cotton, the pro pertv of John R. Matthews, were burned Sunday night 5 five miles west of Miis place. The origin of the fire is un known, but it is supposed to be tire work of an incendiary. The loss is about $3000. James Wooton, a farmer, was assassinated while near his residence procuring fuel on Monday evening at about 4 o’clock His wife heard the gun tire,but supposed it to be a party of hunters. Her bus band not returning in an hour site went iu search of him.— He was found face down,with the handle of an ax firmly grasped in his baud beneath his body. He ran gome 20 paces when shot,and fell dead. The assassin evidently was lying in wait for Wooten, whose custom it was io visit the spot to procure fuel. His wife relates that the night previous Wooten told her the name of the only en emy lie dreaded. When ques tioned as to the name of this party she refused to divulge rt. There is no clue tj the assassin. Tins is Ihe second assassination hi this (Copiah) county in the past week. Welfsaid. Will the people of the South, either as communities,nr thro’ iheir Representatives iu Con gress,give aid to tliestalwarts in their sectional fight? Inis prudence is possible to both that may render a sectional contest a popular one in the Noith. It is the part of* the democratic house of represen* fatiyes to demonstrate that the best interests of the coun try aio safe in democratic hands, and it is the duty ot communities in the South to show that the revolutionary period through which they have passed is now over, and that the same obedience to law is found in ono section as in the other. These things assured, the principles of the democratic party will certain ly meet the views of a large majority of the people both in the North and South and Democratic success is nltim ^tifjjMure.—Natchez Dew.

They met! in the criminal court room and yoked for a fistcuff fight. They were separated without doing any damage. When judges fight and break tho law right in (lie precincts ot justice, ami yield to passion, how can they expect citizens to keep from it1? The judge who commenced the fight ought to have been lined very heavily and imprisoned as an example to those who are dis posed to take tho law into their own hands. There is too much lawless ness in tho land now; »tbe moral sensibilities of commu nities aie shocked with brea ches ot the peace by gentle* ! men of high standing, and that, is tho lowest grade of misdemeanors, hut they lead to high crimes,wbeu such ex* a tuples are set by officials and the very men whs are bound by law and obligation to con serve tho peace. -»■ - . — Don. Geo. Winchester. Says the Jackson Clarion of tho 16th; We had tho plea sure of meeting the Han Geo Winchester in the city yes terday. He looks remarkably well for one of his age; he is perhaps the oldest member of the bar in the State now liv ing. The contemporaries of the J udge are neat !y all gone, and he must feel forlorn in his rounds aoout the city and Capitol to find so tew of his old ft iends and associates. He was tho compeer of Turner, Ellis, Quitman, Boyd, Me* Ivlurrin, Montgomery, Pren* tiss, Sharkey, Thrasher, and a host of others who have preceded him to the laud of spirits. Disabled Confederates. Boston Advertiser: The Third Maine Regiment Asso ciation, at their last reunion, it may be remembered, adop* teda minute in favot of the establishment by the General Government of homes for dis abled Confederate sjldieis and sailors Subsequently the Georgia Legislature pass ed resolutions of acknowledg ment,and in forwatding them the Governor of that State expressed his hearty concur rence in the act of the Legis future. Tho Governor ot Maine has now sent the reso lutions to the Association, with letter felicitating that body on the response which its humane expression has called forth. These incidents are an inteiesting contribu tion to the debate about the relations of the North and South. Assassination, Etc , in CGpiah. Crystal Springs, Jan. 13.— Special to the Times Demo* c»’at: Ed. Graves, son of Eli Graves, was assassinated last night on his way home from this place by two negroes, supposed to be Luke and Richard Miller. The assas* sins have made their escape. The fathei of the young man offers a reward of ^100 for their arrest. Beauregard, Jan. 14tli.— Tames Wooten, a farmer,was found dead this evening a few miles from this place, shot through the heart. No trace of the murderer. Mr Ed Matthews’ gin and forty bales of cotton wore burnt last night by incendia ries.—Picayune. It appears to be a little ins congruous that the deinocra~ cy avvav up in Massachusetts should show more reverence for the memory of Audiew Jackson than any other state. The Slate executive commit tee "determined to hold the annual dinner on January 8, the anniversary of the battle of New Orleans. All the most prominent democrats in the anion have been invited, and Gov. Butler will preside.

' | We copy tlie following items from the Daily Natchez De mocrat of the 15th: A survey is to he nude for ‘ 4 railroid from .Jackson to! I he Gulf. Drew.Crosby, colored, died it the age 100 years in the [Quitman jail. The State Ledger of Jack »on says: ‘McGill needn’t go f'nl the present.’ The toy pistol killed four little hoys in Lee county dur ing the Christmas holidays. The late cold snap was se vere enough about Shubuta to freeze a number of hogs to Jeatli. Tramps are fined $25 when they go to Tupelo,and if they rre minus the cash they hyp othecate their muscle by do ing duty on the street gang. The Brandon Republican says the more it hears of the Yazoo trouble the more it thinks ttie people were rrght in having their lynching party For the first time in ten or fifteen years there is not a colored man on the board of supervisors of Panola county. The Mayor of Sardis gets a salary of $250, and the aider men’s property ate exempt from taxation in considera tion or their services. The city attorney ofVicks burfi lias decided that the con tract made by theNmth Am erican Construction Company tviMi the city for erection of water-works is null and void, The business men of Vicks burg have addressed memori al to congress asking that bo dy to restore the harbor of Vicksburg by making an ap propriation to bring the Ya zoo River in frout of that city. The sheriff of Alcorn coun ty makes it a custom to give an annual dinner to the board of supervisors of that county when they are inducted into office. We suppose that makes the sheriff ‘solid’ with the board. .Bramlon Republican : A hand of threves have been lobbing houses in and around Ohesir, in Choctaw county, for some time. On the night of tlicOih inst., they blew the sheriff’s safe open.but got hut little money, as ho had turn ed it over to the treasurer. New Mississippian: We learn that Gus sli iw, a farm er living about. 7 miles fioin here, while on his way home from this city on Thursday evening, got into an alterca tion with JoeDe»l,who struck him over the head with acluh, fracturing his skull, fioiu tho effects of which he died. An effoit is being, made to have a new countv'created out of a portion of Washington, Yazoo, Holmes and Sharkey counties. It. is said that some of the Washingtonians have to travel three hundred and fifty miles to reach the seat of justice when there is a sit ting of court. Haiiy Moss is engineering the scheme. John. Clinton and Elias Garner, negroes charged with the assassination of John W. Person, a prominent citizen of Rankin county, last fall, were remanded to the Rank in county jail. Rail was re fused them. In I he prelimi nary investigation Garner turned State’s evidence, im plicating Clinton as the mur derer and himself as an ac complice. Brookhaven Democrat: Our community wai shocked on Thursday evening last, when ♦he news reached town that the body of our friend Mike Suttle, bad been found in the field of Mr, Irvin Magee, a bout tour miles south of Brookhaven, and about six ty yards from the railroad track, stiff and cold, asleep in the arms of death. The cause of his death was heart disease. We copy these items from the Mississippian of the 14th: The Mayersville Spectator was sold last Friday by the proprietors, to Mr. Livington Peyton. Yazoo has seven Democra tic candidates for the nomi nation of Sheriff—Barksdale, Bunch, Wilson, Childress, Powell, Harrison and Hicks. The Statu Board of Educa tion will convene in Jackson on or abont the 21st instant for the purpose of appointing County Superintendents of Education throughout the State. Applications for ap pointments should be forwifr ded without delay. The Suggestion, Made by Gov. Lowry in bis eminently practical message, in regard to tbe law in rela tion to prisoners in county jails, should, we think, re ceive tbe prompt attention of tbe legislature. There are so veral great hardships incident to the law as it now stands, that should at once be obvia* ted. A criminal is neverthe less a man,and tho treatment of tills class of people, partic ularly of those who suffer for petty offenses, should l.e so guarded that they coaid not j be abused. The particular | points on which the governor! suggests amendments to *he law, will commend themselves we think,at on> to tnembets of the legislature, and the; hardships which they work will be obviated. The too Speedy delivery of the convict to tho contractor has in some cases sent him to punishment without his even knowing its term. Time should certainly bo allowed to ascertain the amount of'the costs of the prosecution, and as witnesses are allowed five days from the expiration of the term to file their claims, the gover nor’s recommendation to change the time of delivery of tbe convict from ‘twenty tour hours’ to five days,is out) that justice demands. Tire abuses to which this; system is liable, requires all the careful safeguards which the governor recommends,and the legislature, in tho interest of justice, should give the whole law tho most carefuf attention. The horrors that have been reported in convict camps should 1)8 made impossible if ♦ho system of hiring out con victs is to be continued. The moitality reported among the convicts of Mississippi is a terrible proof that the State is not. doing its full duty to wards this unfortunate class, land humanity demands that laws should be so framed that the State may in future be freed from the stain which such a record is calculated to bring upon it.—Natch. Deui Faded Mopes. . Detroit Free Press: A roung •man with a broad back and a sorrowful look was standing in front of the hoard of tiade yesterday, when ar. acquaint ance came up and called out: ‘Hello,-Thomas—out of a job?’ ‘Yes. out of a job,' was the sad teply. ‘N<»! Why, you were por ter for a wholesale house for three years past.’ ‘Just so, but I’ve been dis charged.’ ‘Is that sol Have tumble with the boss?’ ‘No, not exactly. You see 1 went irtto the house to work my way np. The first Christ mas I ought to have been pro : muted to salesman,hut I was n't. The second Christmas | ought to have been offered a partnership .for my faithful services, but the offer didn’t come. This year 1 ought to have martied the daughter of the senior partner and found a house and lot in my Christ inas stocking, but that pios pect has now departed,’ ‘And you left?’ ‘Well, I overhauled the oid man eu the street car yester day and intimated that I was ready to do my part, but he never let on that he knew me. This morning 1 was told that my services were no longer needed.’ ‘But can the house run without you?’ ‘It may possibly squeeze along, but if there's a failure it must not be laid agin me. Do}on know of any hank where a man can begin as watchman and work up to marry the president's widow? I think I'll try that business for r spell.’ The Port Gibson News or the 11th says: We hear of quite a nnmber of parties be ing frozen death in the conn tv surrounding. This is some what nnusuai for a Southern climate. Our colored popu lation and a larger portion of the white people that inhabit the rural districts have not prepared their bouses for such cold blasts. Picayune : The battle of New Orleans was celebrated in Boston on the 8th by a dinner at the Parker House. It is the most popular way of celebrating battles. A fellow feels patriotic when thesUnn [aeB is full, Ycrterbratlng The Judiciary. By U ey. Ghas. B Gall os nay, In New Orleans Advo cate of the 10th: However well established our couita of justice and forms of law, and however learned and efficient those entrusted with judicial responsibility, these are pow erless and uuoperative unless] sustained by a loyal, moral, intelligent sentiment. Legis latures are often in advance of the people in enacting wise and wholesome laws. The statutes are right, but. are not enforced, because not approve ed and sustained bv the peo ple. It .is strange what an India rubber conscience some men have when called to seive as iurrurs or witnesses «l in certain cases. If the law is disapproved, they will ems ploy any methods to deleat its execution, and then resort to most ingenius casuistry and sophistry as an all suffi cient apology. Tlius grand juries aie failed in their efforts to elicit facts on which to base a bill of endictnient, Or, if the case goes into court, a trial by jury is equivalent to accqnittal. And in every •such case, where the spirit and letter of the law are sac riticed taa vicious public sen timent, tiieie is begotten a depreciation of all law and licenso is given to ont lavvry. \Y bat we need in every community ia a loyalty of public sentiment that will ex alt the forms of law and sus tain our courts of justice. Bet ter Lave a bad law ligidlv en forced, even if it works bard ship, than that any statute should be set at defiance. If the court is disposed to a sen timental leniency,that allows too many criminals to go un whipped ot justice, be should be oxorted to amend or resign. We would not bold the judi ciary guiltless in this matter. The imposition of minimum fines, and the delivery of mor al lectir.es to offenders, ac companiod with a threat of more dreadful tilings if the critno is repeated, will belit tle any court and render the laws inoperative. But a right sentiment in a community, I led by a fearless local press or a few conscienti’us citizens, will compel respect for tin law’s integrity and the oath of office. When courts are disregard Jed and ly nch law reigns,peo pie may well put on sack cloth and ashes. There is no guarantee of life and pro perty. The same delimit,mur derous spirit, that demands the life of one man without, the right of trial by jury, will wmak vengeance upon ans other if there be supposed pro vocation, And one such out rage will make each partici pant an out law, and ever af ter he will ho impatient of the tedious processes of the courts. He thirsts for sum mary punishment—a speedy and horrible death. The taste of blood uncages a wild beast in the human breast. Lynch ers are always law despisors. One such offence, unless un der circumstances that may occur hut once in a century, unfits a man for good citizen ship. And then the moral effect upon an entire cousmii nity is most disastrous. It clieapeus human life, begets a feeling of suspicion and iuse cirity, and brings constituted authority into contempt. We need to veitabrate the judiciary. Every citizenslio’ld bold up the bands of all law officers. Let every judge know that he has cordial aud on* vaiying support in his admin istration. If such support was more generally and generous ly accorded, there would be fewer appeals to lynch-law. Avalanche: An interesting experiment Was made by a number of scientists jester" day. They caught a dude,im paled him and exposed him to the weather to., see if he would freeze. The coldest tern poratare had not slightest efs feet on him, and no change j of any description was otiser ved in his cheek. Subse quently he was taken in and analyzed by a chemist. Tho analysis showed that he was composed of pure nothing aud hence could not freeze. The Port Gibson News says there are twentj"three yonng ladies at the State Uuiversi ty, and one hundred and sev enteen young men. It is said that the yonng ladies grade fully up with the young men. ggf* Coal Oil at Bunilry k Son’.* q:,Iv -) C - a gattoo. , « The! eglslatnre.
