mm Journal of laisoa Ceity. CAN TON. MI S S . SAIUKDAT, JANUAKY 9, 1S73. The Governor's Messaga. We publish below certain extracts from the message of Governor Ames to the Legislature, nov in sessiou at Jackson, and regret that we have not space to give it entire. As a State paper of uo ordinary type, the message is receiving the hearty approval of the press throughout the State. The extracts given be low must recommend themselves to oar readers as suggestion of ear nest propriety lor immediate legis lation: Executive Offick, State of Mississppi, Jackson, January 5, l$lo. To the Senate and House of Lepre tentatives : Gentlemen As representatives of the people, you have assembled iu conformity with the Constitution, to discharge the duties imposed nj ou yoc as the Legislative branch of the government. The qm-stious for your consideration aie of the high est importance, not only affecting the personal security of many of our iellow-citizeus, but even tbeir personal liberty. Coming directly from the people, you are fully informed as to their necessities aud aspirations ; and the State looks to you in confident be lief that you will give, by judicious legislation, peace aud good order j promote its interests, and eulianco its prosperity, so that the people may rejoice in the greatest ad van tages aud the least disadvantages incident to human government. It is my duly to give you such in formation relative to the condition and interest of the government aud State, and to recommend, for sour eousidratiou,8uch measures as may be deemed expedient. Detailed reports of the condition of the several departments will be furuubed you by their heads, to which I respectfully refer you for full accounts of their workings. STATE BOARD OF EQUALIZATION. Ibe woik accomplished by the State Board of Equalization lias been highly important. Atteutiou is invited to its report. It will be seen that personal property (no ac tion was taken as to realty), of sub stantially the same value in differ ent ct untie, varied greatly, its as sessed valuation uot being the same in any two counties, and differing as widely as fifty-seven per cent. With such inequality goes a correspond ing injustice. The law, as it now stands, permits the equalization of personalty but once iu four years. Jt should be done yearly ; our law is defective aud i-u;.erfect. I re commend that it be modeled after those of other Suites where the system Las been brought to a high stale of perfection. We base no relative to the asserismeot aud ' taxation of rail roads. By au agreement between some of the railroad corporations of the State aud the State Board of Equalization, they were assessed at five thousand dollars per mile, and agreed to pay accordingly. Legis lation relative to this question is imperative. FAYXENT OF TAXES IN CUBBENCT. The law passed last year, requir ing taxes to be paid iu United States currency, has proved emi nently beneficial. It is believed that sufficient money will be paid into the treasury, upon a settlement of Collectors with the State, to pay every warrant outstanding for the last fiscal year, aud had tue season been iu any degree a favorable one, there would have been a surplusage to meet, iu part, the espouses of this year. A repeal of this law, and a return to the system recently iu existence, I would deem a great misfortune to the State and an in jury to the tax-payei. COXFUXSORT EDUCATION. I renew my recommendation made last year, iu favor of compulsory ed ncatiou. It is the surest aud safest aveuue of escape fiom eicbiruss ineut of every kind which may sur round us. Such laws have beeu iu operation in other Ssates, with great advantage, aud cau bo copied by us with like results. TEMPERANCE. The laws relative to temperance, passed at your last regular sesxion. Lave failed W give ttose beneficial resalts so much desired. Aprils come from every quarter of the State that the work so bravely eu tered upon a year ago may be press ed forward aud perfected. - I com mend this subject to your careful consideration. OBAND JURIES. Grand Juries are now selected by the Board of Supervisor of coun ties. These Boards of Supervisors eontrol anil direct the finances of counties. It is asserted that they select their juries to save them selves aud their friends from the consequence of corrupt or illegal acts, which they may be base enough to commit. That all such criminal deeds may be followed by the ee verest penalties, it will bo necessary for the Lw regulating the 8oictiofi of jtirors to be modified. No man, who is to tiied or wh'se official con duct is to be inquired into, should select the jury to do it. I recom mend that the selection of such juries be given to Jury Commission erf, to be designated by the C'itctiii I JaJ;e. Such Coiiimis -ioaeis ulioul.l . be iilv vu if,iii':u!i, lvsptt'ttril by uW, ami ktiOAU to lie life i'r:ui :in ou- .luctioti with tlio tuoimtl i.ii'alrsj of cuici"iU A Word of Cs'J''-". For some reason, to us at present nnkiii n, the oir ti.iiin. the p:ist low t.ujs luis been ti licit wit'a !iis jsered rumors which are well tu! u lateJ to breed distrust if not di.s turb.inee in lliu State. It may be well enough to give one of these canards, tlit tho whole people 'isiiy kuo'.v wb.it is being e.tiil. It is this: That li:e lreednieu iu tbi J act! :id joiiinig neighborhoods r.re necrelly oi g.i::iziu(j and arming for the pur p se :f luatigmatiug a uifiienlty. We ii.ive ivtr it-at-on to believe that these reports, aud ail similar rt-potti), me entirely uiitro and with out a paitiilc of foundation iu fact Ihey must have had their origin iu au unduly excited iuiagiuatis i. Uat, true or utttiue, they aie luten ded to work much evil, aud should at once be coiitrauio-cd and forever set at rest. If any person has any reiiabie infoimatiou. that any such organization of toe colored people is eveu contemplated, se wish that they would come forail ami proinply make known their in for mama to the State authorities, or to the Sheriff of Hind?, or of some other conu'y, when earnest steps will be taken to counteract auy mjcIi alleged iii h.s cr pretended pui pose. As oetoro :aie I, however, we cannot, .or one moment believe that ai f .i-o fiveduien have ever conctiit.i eatli a monstrous idea. Should tL.m a-.iy bad men, white or colored, wlio are iueiting or en- deavoriug to i.iuite this people to any prepaiai.o.i for violence, or to repel any expected violenee, they should be poiuted out and tbeir bad deeds made public And this ad vice applied to whites as weil as blacks, No man should be allowed to urge on a difficulty, or to indulge in acts or words in themselves cal culated to inspire fear in any person, under the present condition ot al ia irs iu an adjoining State. e desire sincerely to advise all good Republicans, wherever found, to obey the laics, aud ibnv !' protection in the administrators of the laws. .Excitements suouiti oe be kept down. Each and every man should attend to his own pecu liar and private duties, quietly and peaceably, and keep away from those who may be even suspected of a w ish to goad any oue on to word, or act, leading to violence. There is no occasion, for trouble iu this State; there need be uo trouble; should it come, let ns make sure that it does not have its origin with us or whli our irieuds. We most decidedly discountenance the pur chase or carrying of arms by Re publican. Let others keep them and bear them, if they ru-iy, but let us put our faith in the Constitution and the laws, wbicji are abundant for our protection and for the en forcement of our legal rights. Let us have no excitements ! Let us have uo fuither disturb ances iu Mississippi! Pilot' Coffee houses are now established in two places iu Philadelphia where a pint of tea or coffee aud a roll ; a a bowl of soup and a roll j or, u plate of stewed meat and a roll, will be sold for five cents. It is demon strated that these things can be fur nished, at the price named, without loss, the fitting up ot the establish ment being paid for by benevolent persons. This charity helps most deserving people who dislike to beg and who are too much pinched iu the pocket to pay ordinary restuar aut prices. It will coiuuieud itself to imitation elsewhere, X. 0. Bul letin. We do uot wish to make rude re marks about "the Nation's guest,' as the petty ruler of the Sandwich Islands is ca led, in the Northern papers, but we are glad to hear that he is about to go home again, when we hope to fiud something in our exchanges more exbilirating aud instructive than circumstantial re ports of the drives he has taken, the operas and ballets he has visit ed, and the quantity of lager beer he has daily imbibed. Jnt then, to be sure, a live King is a great curi osity, even though his royalty is somewhat of the piuch'oack order. JT. 0. Bulletin. The laws of Paris are so framed as to constitute a strong jersuasive to honesty on the part of trademen. Jcweleis are obliged to distinguish plated from genuine ware by the word 'imitation" placed where the purchaser cannot fail of seeing it. If a grocer is detected ee'ling adul terated articles, he is heavily fined ; his name and place of business is published at his own expense in the oiiicial journal, and be is compelled to expose iu his store for a specified time a placard stating that he has been fined for selling adulterated goods. mm Among other pranks p'ayed at the Nc York Brokers' Board on ChrintniHS eve was the snrieptitious introduction of a colored gentlemen ou the plat form in variegated cos tuuie, as their ditiugiiiNhed visitor, the Xing of the Sandwich Islands. The fiaud was not discovered by a majority of the members nutil his mock highness essayed to make a a speech and lo remove his f.ihe imperial, when it wus discovered that he was only the janitor of the lower floor." Seventy years ago the heaviest naval gun was a 3J-pomnIei, weigh ing two tons and a lialr, and teu pounds of powder a charge. A gun now iu process of construc tion at Woolwich, England, twenty six feet ami nine inches iu length, will weigh 81 tons, throw a projec tile of (iOO pounds weight, and re fpiiie 21'J poundj of powder to load it.
