GfiN I T.EMfcS Beiii" Informed that an impres

f.rroed a combination w'nh th other presses, and
viul'tited tht pledges we have made, mid that par
utii inimical lo us, are using every exeuion to foster
nun extend this impression, permit us to say a few
wDrda on the subject.
Id our circular of last summer, we promised you
n reduction of 70 cents per bate in tliu port chnr
p -s (in your cotton. Let us seu if the promise has
been redeemed. Under the tariff formally exi-uing,
the average storage upon tho crop wasjabont fifty
rents per bale. Last euson it was much higher
many billi having gni outranking from one to two
dollars per bale. Tukin?, however, fifty cents aa u

Tina pledge, then, ha been tn ire than redoem.
d, But, aay many you have ehaoged yonr rates.
So we have gentlemen; hut are you Injured there'
by t ti not '-25 cents for the season a better tariff
f -r you then the one proposed by tts, or SO rents for
the first month and 12 cents for euch subsequent
week. It was moreover the only rate on which all
could agree, and we felt no hesitancy in accepting
it, as it is the charge invariably preferred by those
i lanters with whom we have conversed on the sub
ject. It is the rote paid at every important river
warehouse tn the State, and we certainty cannot af
ford to build fivoproof woiehouses, where the Ind
aloud costs a fortune, and stoic for less than is paid
m wooden sheds up the country.
Nor du we think those who last seasen paid from
r-ne to two dollars per bale storage, enn complain,
when now allowed the use of our sheds, the entire
teuton for 35 rents. But it is aided, you have also
jiut up the drayoge, from your own wharves. So
ive have, and reduced what fage exactly the same
amount. Ami wo humbly conceive it a matter
of no consequence v you, whether you pay 5 cents
dtuyageand 5 cents wharftge, Of 10 cents d ravage
and no wharfage. Ttj protect ourselves from ttie
machinations of the Ui townwhrafagex, we fore
saw the necessity of opening our wharves free, un
der any circumdtarices ; and to accomplish the doub
le object of obtaining uniformity in the rntes, and
avoiding a heavier hiss than WeCOttld stand, we put
.'ray ?e at 10 cents.
But you have done still worse, pity others. You
h ive formed a new combinatiun. With the utmost
rctfpMt, prntlemeti, fur your better judgment, it is
not so. There is a wids difference between a com
bination or general copartnership umong the pn-ss-by
which all ompnition iaHtippod rallies eu

hibeftt rates exacted from tliejcommuniiy, to which

hi low as can be afforded, and wliich leaves each

EPTWe see by our exchange papers that the
question of 'Time as to holding the State convention
is yet open and being diacussrd warmly by our co
temporaries. Experience has taught us, that all
cannot be Ratl'hVo as to time, but it h 9 struck us
that the most feasible position the press catyissume
upon this question is, to ca'I county meetings, and
get the voice of the people. Let this bo done in
every COUnty in the state and when all shall have
given their preference! as to the time' then the only
duty the press has to perform is to give the voico of
the people. A majority ot counties fixing upon any
one lime would meet the approbation of all we are
inclined to think. 'The fit st principle of democracy,
is that the majority should rule. If this cannot be
done, we go for holding the convention at tholute-it
possible day, compatible with party interests.
P. S. Since writing the above we are pleased to
see that the Southern Reformer lias assumed the
same position.
Another member added to the Democratic
family. The 1 Ripley Advertise!1 heretofore a whig

TyWe direct the attention of the planting inter
est to the circular letter of Messrs. Green, Casey
and .1 iimes, to be found in another column. While
to Mobile, we interested ourself in making Inquhies
in relation to the management and capability of the
Independent Tress. We were aware that much pre
judice bad been engendered by the late course of
the owners ot the Independent J less, ami as the
planters wore deeply interested in this matter, wo
felt it n duty to inform ourself uf the particular.

the mu ter should be weighed with cure. If this
Press is not sustained; if Its doors are closed
against the public for want of patronage, the plan

the maneuvering of the other Presses who are de
termined to get all they Can.
Messrs. Green Casey and James have been the
immediate and direct means of lowering the piices
of compressing, drayngc. and wharfage, on cotton.
This they have done. Do thty deserve credit for

our citizens are renlly remiss in that which their in

this time not far from 2,200 souls and yet we have
no general market. We have no place where our
country friends resort when they bring to our city
the overplus product of iheir farms and larders.
This is wrong. It is in direct opposition to the in

dant upon the farmer for the necessaries of life,
such for instance, as butter, eggs, pooltiy, potatoes,
meal, fiour, eVe, The funner brings all these
things to town, and he is either obliged to hawk
them around the streets, (which many we know
will not do) or take them to the grocer and sell.

per year, can very well estimate the amount in the
These are positions that cannot be denied, and
we think it a subject that demands immediate ac

We go for energetlo measures, where the inter
ests of the people are so deeply concerned as they
evidently nre in this case. Justice to the family of
every mechanic in this community demands action
of some kind, that will cnsuie him provisions ut the
lowest price.
Let our Common Council mon reflect upon this
matter. Let them make proposals for the building
of a market bouse at some convenient point, and
then enquire if our citizens will not readily abide
the requisition of a tax necessary to meet the ex
pense of if. It is a subject in which oil are interes

does, we shall speak more plainly of what we con

We cannot form tha slightest opinion why Judge
Adams is marked out by an editor, who pfofeSfOS
a rstern regaid for the advancement of democratic
principles, as one fitted cither by habit, education,
or capacity, for malignant and scurrilous abuse.
Judge Adums is not a "fisher" for office.
rrpWe olin the followine deprecatory article
from a lato number of the Mississippian, and re
mark by the way, that if we have misapprehended
the course pursued by the editor of that valuable
Journal, the fault is not ours. They certainly sug
gested a time for holding the State Convention,
and where ever they Raw a paragraph which indica

"Our worthy friends of the Misaisippi Adver
tiser, have surely misapprehended our course
in regard to the proposed Democratic L-on
vention. We have never suggestedany time,
late or early, for the meeting; nor expressed an
opinion in favor of one time over another.
We have distinctly asserted, that we had no
choice as to the time, and that we should,
whenever the time was fixed by some general
understanding, employ our humble efforts to
aid in assembling of a full and fair Conven
tion. If Messrs, Chapman and Smith will re
view our course, we think they will see that
we have not deserved the several pointed re
flections they have made upon us. This is
due to truth and justice. We do not covet,
the fame which that raw-head and bloody
bones, the Jackson Clique, have now in the
State at large; and dont want our friends to
write us into particular notoriety as cue of its
members. If there must be a dictator located
somewhere for the convenience of all persons
that become "uxlftsh" occasionally and want
to ran a lilt at somebody, we entreat our
friends to spare us the honor of such an office.

by great impartiality ami a rigid adherence to the
dictates ol a sound and well balanced mind. There
is no man wno nas made moic mends and tawer
enemies during his long professional service noon
the bench, in this State, than Stephen Adams.
Governed by the sternest motives Of justice, he has
discharged those duties devolving upon him regard
less of what friends nr foes might say.
Mr. Adomsis endowed with on excellent under
standing, wliich lias been trained by reading and an
enlarged acquaintance with men, into the best pos
sible discipline. The natural amenity and gentle
ness of his heart makes him one the most aieenble
companions, while at the some time, the soundness
of his intellect lends a charm to his conversation
that not only enlightens but interests his listeners.
It is these kindly qualities of the heart that lias so
endeared him to those who have had the pleasure
of his acquaintance.
As a democrat, he is sound upon oil the groat
questions of State and Nationnl politics. In the
expression of his opinions, he has never been one of

0The above communication was received lev
era! weeks since, and withheld by us until we could
see Dr. Thompson in person. We are satisfied thai
no gentleman in our party is capable of giving more
general satisfaction, than Dr. Thompson, and it
would have afforded us the highest gratification to
have presented his claims to the paity. The Dr.
has informed us, that he cannot permit his name to
be used, unless at great pecuniary loss to hi priiaie
interest. He now enjoys a very large and lucra
tive professional practice, and is likewise engaged
in the farming business, which luty to himself and
family imperiously demands bis personal attention.
These nre considerations that should have their
due weight with all hit friends, and we believe that
no man in our party can find fault with the Dr's
decision it is proper and juat.

David Colenzin was a foreigner who had
furnished supplies to our squadron in the
Mediterranean. For some cause or other he
could not be paid without the intervention of
congress, and he was obliged to come to this
country and to Washington for relief. There
wa no question as lo the justness of his
claim, but it was postponed on one private bill
day, and another, and when there would be
no quorum until David's resources at last
gave out, and the poor man was thrown into
prison for his board bill. In a fit of deipon
dency he committed suicide. The day after
he committed the act, the House of Represen

Mr. Blair otic met a verv savage looking
Kcntuckian in the Wheeling stagn coach,
who accosted him thus:
"1 say, stranger, here's a very pretty Bowie
knife I was ax'd'to hand over to you!"
"Indeed," said Blair, "tn whom may I be
indebted for this present'' (It was a (right
ful looking knife,)
'Well, now, that would be hard to tell," re
plied the Kentuckian. "Twai about fire
years ago, as I reckon, when I was go in' o
rer this turnpike, and I met a feliow who guv
me the knife, as a sort of a premium for be
ing the ugliest looking fellow he had met on
his journey over this ugly road. He exacted
a promise, however, that if I ever met an ue-
lier lookinc m'l than myself, I should at once
nana it over to mm, at all hazards. Since
then, I have looked in vain for five years, and
I began to think the knife was my own prop
erty, I beg, however, you will make no objec
tions to acceptipg a present to which I am
satisfied, you are justly entitled!"
Mr. Blair pocketed the knife very good na
turedly, giving the Kentucinn an earnest as
surance that if he ever met any body uglier
looking than himielf, he would resign over
his trust with the utmost fidelity.
