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

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. By publishing the
statement you will greatly oblige,

The Okclona States presents the
above card to its readers, with tbe
following comment :
"Now if you want to know how the
grand jury standB, yon can glance at the
card from Col. 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
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.
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 :
W. Diok, Wm. Lea,
B. S. Jumper, B, Bell, (col.)
L. C. Bugg-6.
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.
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
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.

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.

Wo regret to observe a disposition
anong the overworked humorists ot
.tie press to prophecy another eun
itroke for Senator Blaiuo as the timi
for the Presidential contest comes
wound. This, we are sure, is doin
n injustice not only to Mr. Blaine
.ut to his f.imily physician aa well
li is scarcely within the bounds u'
tinman probability that Mr. Bluiii
will ever have another such attack
tig .in. He may have tho measles ii

The first wine mado from oranges in

attractive color, perfectly clear, of
au agreeable, sweet, slightly acid
flavor, and of an alcoholio strength
of about fifteen per cent. MX.
According to the Fernandina (Fla.)
Express, notwithstanding the fact
that nearly two inches of snow lay on
the ground for twenty-lour nours,
and the novelty of sleigh-riding was
indulgod in by t le citizens of that
city, it has yet to hear of any injury
done to fruit trees. Orange and
lemon trees in the city are looking
green and healthy, and reports from
the country state that no trees were
killed or even injured.
Hose Eytinge, the actrosB, is se
riously ill in New York, having bro

been obliged to disband her company
