EdiUirt Okoiona States: I send you a Hat of the grand jurors for the present term of the United Utates Diatriot Court at this place, with a state ment as to how eaoh of them voted at the recent election. It haa been ehartr ed that the jury is composed entirely of Radicals and negroes. Of the twenty one wnose names 1 send yon (two are absent and I onnnot send their certificates) only two are negroes, (one colored ioror ansont) ana only tnree rotoa for naye. It has also been charged that twenty-one of the twenty-three grand jurors voted for Davis at the recent election, which oliarge you will see is false, as only sev en of the twenty-one whose names I send you voted for Davis.

Morphia in this issne." At the Cist "glance," tbe list is calculated to greatly mislead tbe reader, but an analysis of its compo nents, with even the meagre informa tion at onr command, to a large oi tent dispela tbe mirage. Admitting for the Bake of the arg ument, and only for argument's sake, that the signers of the above card stood politically arrayed as the list would indicate, to-wit: Democrats, Oreenlackers and neutrals, is it not apparent to any one familiar with tbe ineo, that v.bilo tho ablest and most prominent of the Grocnback party in tho Firc CongrcBBional District were selected on tbe paunol, such as OoL J. W. Causey, of Alcorn, President of tho Into "National" District Con vention, as a member; Major Wm. H. Yasser, Chairman of the District Executive Committee of the National party, as foreman of tbe Grand Jury, and J. Q. Jackson, of Monroe, ono of their ablest workers. On the other hand, tbe majority of tbe mem beru reported as ' supporting tbe Democratic nominees, are men with out reputation or note. At tbe first "glance" ono would naturally infer that the list under the modest beading "no vote," was com posed of mild mannered, gentle spir its, that, despising tbe eternal jar-of political battle, and careless who won the spurs of tbe victor, refrained from taking' any stock whatever in tho con tost. Well, we are not ac quainted with all of them, but a few ample bricks enable onr readers to judge of the whole kiln : J. Q. Jack son, of Monroe, was one of tbe lead ing and most devoted advocates of Davis' election we bad in our coun ty, and be did not vote for tbe simple reason that it paid his party better to station hita as challenger at a die. tant precinct, where his services were worth ten times as much to bis chief as his ballot. Mr. Ben Flippin, of Egypt, was another so-called neutral that is he tood tbe mark when the roll was called at Oxford, to tbe tuna of "no vote. We understand that Mr. Flippin, who for reasons best known to himself, declined to vote, was a "Davis man," and presume that if the whole list of non -voters was canvassed as to their sympathies rather than tbeir ballot box expres sions daring the late contest, it would ha found that thev were a unit in opposition to the Democratic nomi nee. Now a word in regard to one of those who votod for Col. Muldrow we refer to Mr. J. A. Montgomery, of Starkvillo. This gentleman was, we understand, regarded in Oktibbe ba oounty as tho leading opponent of tbe organizod Democracy; we do not mean by that, that he was a Bad ical, but simply a "Democrat hater." In tbe last county election he was tbe "Independent" candidate for Sheriff, in opposition to the Domo' oratic nominee, and was considered the leader of the "Independents" in that county. He voted for Muldrow purely through personal considera tions, and would have voted for Davis in preference to any other man the Democracy could have nominated, and was supposed to be a Davis man, when selected for tbe Grand Jury. L. C Sugg ia a nephew of J. Q. THE RIGHT JTOR COVRTiJSG FAVOR, JVOR FEJIRIJYG COJTDEJIIJMTldJr. ABERDEEN Jackson, (Davis grand juryman from Monroe,) and was believed to be a Chickasaw county Davia man, when summoned. Bice Bell is a freedman of Chickasaw, who supported Hayes in 1878, and was thought to be in fnll affiliation with tbe political jum ble that was arrayed against the Democratic party. Before be reached Oxford the managers had discovered their mistake, and assign ed him to duty on the petit jury. Against this act of injustice Rice Bell revolted, and insisted upon bis rights. With regard to the individuality and sympathies of the other members of the Grand Inquest we are not in formed, bnt from tbe "dots" we have given, it will not be difficult to locate at least tbe non voters; and it is not assuming too much to class the "two absent " with tbe opposition, for if they were supporters of tbe Demo cratic nominees, tbe fact would cer tainly have been ascertained, and Btated in the card. Now, according to a fair showing, how did the members of that Grand Jury stand politically! We array them as follows : SlatOcmATS. W. Diok, Wm. Lea, B. S. Jumper, B, Bell, (col.) L. C. Bugg-6. IKDIPIKDKXTS AMD OR1BHBAOXXBS. W. H. Vasaer, W. Y. Baker, B. Flippin, W. E. Avent, J. W. Jones, J. B. Crocker, James Kirjt, J. W. Causey, J. Q. Jackson, H. P. Sadler," T. Humphries, B. 8. Trioe, J. A. Montgomery 13. DOUBTFUL, W. Phipps, W. A Roberts, James Moody, "Two Absent" 6. In tbe list beaded Democratic, tbe two last named were summoned un der a misapprehension, and one of them, tbe colored man Bell, has al ways been regarded as a thorough going Republican. Of the other three we know nothing whatever, and think it quite likely that they sup ported Muldrow like Mr. Montgom ery, through personal considerations, and not on account of hi being the Democratic nominee; and one ef them at least bears a name that was well represented in East Mississippi among Gen. Davis' supporters. So much for tbe last card from Oxford. Ik tbe next Congress South Caro lina will have two one legged Senators Gens. Hampton and Butler, and to carry the coincidence yet farther, they both entered tbe Confederate army in tbe same command, the Hampton Legion, which consisted of three battalions representing the three arms of tbe service. Col. Wade Hampton (afterwards Lieut. General) was in command, while Lieut Colonel (afterwards Major General) Butler commanded tbe cav alry; Major Gary (afterwards Briga dier General) commanded the infan try, and Major Stephen D. Lee (afterwards Lieutenant General) com manded the artillery. Tbe two great cavalry chieftains will fittingly represent the Palmetto State, and prove as faithful and zeal ous in the walks of peace as they were skillful and intrepid in the arts of war, and we hope it may not be very long before tbe field officers of tbe old Legion will be fully repre sented in Congreis. Gary ia a lead ing politician in bis District in South Carolina, while Gen. Lee now repre sents his new home in the State Sen ate of Mississippi. Conors, of Michigan, is ternbly shocked at the demand of the people of the Mississippi Valley for an ap propriation for levees to restrain tbe destructive advances of tbe groat river, and yet he and his whole dele gation in Congress clamor for na tional aid to tbe extent of $5,000,000 to cut a canal across his State. If Michigan obtains a single vote from tbe States bordering on tbe Miss'ssiDDi river for the improvement of any of hw line( of oommunication or harbors, without agreeing to sup port the levee appropriation bill, the Congressman who gives it should be assigned to a back seat by his con stituents forever afterwards. John A. Looah, or " dirty work John," as be is familiarly called by those who know him best, has been elected to the United States Senate from Illinois by the Radicals, to auc eeed Oglesby. Logan will reinforce Blaine in the shrieking department, but will hardly bring aa much brain power to his party in the Senate as Tim Howe takes home to Wisconsin.

MISSISSIPPI, THURSDAY, JANUARY 30 1879. Taa Wisconsin Legislature, after many days of fruitless caucusing, on tbe 22nd instant elected Matt H. Carpenter to the United States Sen ate, to succeed that cowardly South hater, T. O. Howe, the present in cumbent Though Carpenter ia a Republican, and as a Senator in tbe past gave the South much reason to condemn him, he has of late years manifested a more conservative spirit, and is a man of first class ability. Personally, he was popular with our people, while the present incumbent was held in detestation and contempt by gentlemen of all sections. Tally oc Geo. O. Vest was elected United States Senator from MiHxonri last week, on tbe eeoond ballot. -George Q. Vest is opposed to the black amend ments. Hip-hip-hurrah I Okulonn stales. "Don't halloo before you're out of the woods," neighbor. Tho new Sen ator, like all other Southern Demo crats, opposed the amendments as long as he had practical ground to stand npon, but the following press despatch will illustrate his present footing: St. Louis. January 22. At Jefferson uiiy to-uay uen. onieias ana ueorge u. Vest were formally declared United States Senators elect by the Legislature in joint session. Vest addressed the as sembly, assailing the Republican party as the party of centralization and force. He pledged himself as a Southern Dem ocrat to support all the amendments to the Constitution, and especially to pro tection of the negro. He declared against granting any pension, bounty or pay to Confederates, or recognition of Confed erate debt, and in favor of the honest payment of the national debt. We cannot see that in this enunci ation he differs from any other prom inent Democrat that we know of, and truly hope that bis platform is not so repugnant te the States as to induoe it to "pull down its Vest" GiBatAKv and Austria aro taking timely precautions against the intro duction of tbe plague, which is now devastating certain districts in Rus sian Tartary. These measures may result in the absolute cessation of all commercial intercourse with Russia in Asia, and in the event that the Czar does not use tbe necessary ef forts to check its entry into Europe before spring, an aDsolute quarantine may bo adopted by all border nation alities, that will practically isolate Russia. The experience of the past was too dearly bought to admit of any but the most rigorous and positive meas urea being adopted, and absolute non intercourse will be tbe prevailing rule on the continent of Europe.
