-HQUTTSPRINGS:::: :::::::::::::MAY 4. 'the pending negotiation. Lord Ashburton is now in Washington Ci ty, but the result of his conferences with Paniel Webster is shrouded in uncertainty. We have very Httle confidence in the Sec retary of State, but believe the force of cir cumstances will compel him to stand up to the honor and independence of the country. The right of search can never be conceded by our Government. The abolitionists may be willing, but, thank Heaven! their influ ence i3 still small. We have no doubt the British Government has asserted the right as a pretence for war. They have foolishly supposed that the discussion of this question would produce divisions among us, and thus enable them to obtain advantages which otherwise would be far beyond their reach. In the last war, Great B ritain attempted to divide the Union. She had her emissaries in the Northern States to excite and co operate with the disaffected. She is still ca pable, as she always has been, of any and every act of cunning and duplicity. Her f-old has ever been used for purposes of cor ruption. She has never hesitated to violate treaties and outrage humanity, whenever, her supposed interests required it. We ad mire her lierature we detest her domestic nnd foreign policy. We believe war to be inevitable, and that it will soon be upon us. Let the people prepare for the crisis. " TEXAS. A gentleman, just from Texas, has favored us with a copy of the Houstotian of April 18th, containing the address of President Houston and Gen. Burleston to the Texians. We learn from these documents, a3 well as from private sour ces, that the Republic is Jmuch divided by par ties and distracted with the jealousies and ani mosities of its ambitious leaders. Houston and Burleston, the President .and Vice-President, e!ected by the same party, on the same ticket, have become enemies, and the Burnet party, defeated at the late election, accuse Houston of cowardice and corruption. The address of Gen. Burleston is marked by the blunt bold style of the unpolished soldier, but some tact, also, in exciting prejudice against the President, whom he blames for his delay in the Mexican inva siofl. It seems, that when the intelligence of tbo attack upon San Antonia by some Mexican narauders was received, a volunteer army was immediately assembled in the western division , cf the Republic, who appointed Gen. Burleston their commander. Before they reached the lio- Grande, in their pursui; of the retreating foe, he was superseded ia the command by Gen. Somerville, appointed by the President, who is evidently jealous of the popularity of 2?urIeston -jlJ unwilling that he should acquire a glory which may eclipse his own. Burleston wished to cross the Rio Grande and invade the ene rme's country, but was forbidden by the Presi dent. Thesoldiers, with whom Uurleston isa great favorite, refused to obey the orders of Gen. Somerville and disbanded. So the marau. ders were permitted to escape. Burleston, of course, blames the President, and he, in his ad dress, written in his usual poluhcd, politic man ner, a little pompous and bombastic, however, intimates that there is a spirit of insubordination among the people, a disposition to make war each "upon his own hook," which must be check ed, and the contest carried on in a grave, digni f id, regular and national manner. The truth is, evidently, that Houston, himself, desires to head the invading army rjnd crown his present glory by planting his standard upon the walls o Jexico and "revelling4in the halls of the Mon tazurnas." These Texians, in the mass, are quarrelsome turbulent folks. We think, for the present, they had better stay at home and at tend to the cultivation of their fields. They will get more lead than gold before they reach the city of Mexico. For the Guard. MAY BALL. Mr. Editor: The cloud of pecuniary ad versity that has so long hovered over us, has seemingly hushed the sound of merri ment and stilled the voice of the reveler. Should it be so? The ladies deserve a ball oftener than once in eighteen months, and the gallantry of the youns gentlemen should cot have suffered so long an interregnum of me gay pleasures ot the ball room. Do you think there is beauty enough to furnish one? There will be a ball on Thursday evening. Give us your countenanceMr. Editor, and come ladies, both grave and gay come all; mere will be an entertainment, meet tor one and all. G. "Beauty enough to furnish a ball!" Our correspondent is crazy or he would not ask such a question. Is not our village famous for its attractions of the female kind from Ar ansas to Georgia? Does not Memphis ac knowledge their power and Oxford bow to the majesty of their charms? Out upon you, young man, for such a question! Do you mean to insult the better ha!f of creation who reign in Holly Springs? Go ahead, say we. Be innocently happy while you may. "There is a time for all things," says the Psalmist. The Editor of the Guard cannot be there in person he will be absent at the Panola courtbut he will appoint a most gallant old bachelor friend to represent him Young ladies, you of the light feet and warm hearts, and Eyes, hose roving glances fall Alike expressively on all, treat him kindly for our sake, and when you get married, we will write you such delight ful obituariesl Ha! ha! rjCpThe communication which follows, from a "Democrat," does not accord with our own views, but we like freedom of opin ion. We have heretofore expressed our preference for the Presidency, but we think, with other editors of more experience in the democratic ranks, that premature action should be avoided. If Mr Van Buren should be the choice of the democracy generally, no one will yield him a more cordial support than ourself. And with regard to James K. Polk, we cannot speak otherwise than in terms of praise. His very name would prove a tower of strength in North Mississippi. He has a warm place in the hearts of the people. Mr. Editor: It is with some reluctance that I venture to offer a suggestion in rela tion to the Presidential election of 1S44. This reluctance is not a little enhanced on account of the disapprobation manifested bv several able political journals against an ear ly agitation of this question. Differing, how ever, as I do with them, as regards the pro- pnety oi selecting our candidates at an ear ly period, I feel justified m urging a speedy nomination. This subject bespeaks its own importance, the contemplation of which will induce'a relinquishment of individual pref erences for the genera! good. Already are the claims ot several individuals being zeal ously urged by their friends in different quarters of the Union. The longer the nom: ination is defered, the more fixed will be come sectional partialities. Therefore it is that I conceive an early selection of our can didates necessary. To effect this, let us call a cenvention in Mississippi, and hoist our flag. In my humble judgment, few names would grace its folds more than those of MAIITIN VAIN UUKEN and JAMES K. POLK whose claims upon the American people are second to no men in the nation, if numlerless important public services, ably and faithfully rendered, be a recommenda tion. A DEMOCRAT. Correspondence of the Guard. Vicksburg, April 23, 1S12. Mr. Editor: Considerations of personal esteem and approbation of your editorial ca reer politically, has induced me to become temporarily your correspondent. During a short stay in New Orleans to furnish you such items of intelligence as I may deem a- greeable or useful, will afford employment to intervals of leisure, and should you deem them worthy of publication, the entertain ment will be reciprocal. I left Yazoo City yesterday in deep mourn ing for the loss of- one of our most valued citizens, M. B. Hamer, President of the Commercial Bank, and partner of the House of Buckner, Stanton & Co., of New Orleans. He died suddenly of apoplexy. Illustrations of his usefulness and his many virtues, con stituted the theme ot every citizen I met with there, and is impressed upon every thing about that city of his creation. The excitement produced among the cit izens ot this place by the recent amusing and ridiculous scenes which occured on the du elling ground across the river a few days since, has well nigh abated. Robbins and Fall were the principal performers in the farce. Robbins was in defence of his char acter as a banker, and Fall for the establish ment of a character as a man of cour age, truth and gentlemanly bearing. They were both democrats. The result of the meeting on the "field of honor," where of late no one ever gets hurt,) did not set tle the public mind upon the subject of their relative merits. The history of the trans action is this: Robbins challenged Fall to fight him for defaming him in the Sentinel. They met by agreement across the river un der the direction of mutual friends. On the ground and at the hour of fighting, Fall's lriends (acting for him,) disclaimed the au thorship of the offensive article in the Sen tinel in relation to Robbins the challenge was thereupon withdrawn and the reason of its withdrawal publicly proclaimed to all present. The crowd returned to Vicksburg; public opiuon almost unanimously against Fall. The next day Fall renounced the terms of the adjustment dismissed his seconds and made a new call upon Robbins to fight him; Robbins and Fall met again on Mon- dav Eall so nervously anxious for the rec lamation of his lost laurels, violated the rules of the agreement by elevating his pistol be fore the word. The shots of each not hav ing effect the crowd interposed between the parties and all retired from the ground. This is tne account given me by impartial by-standers. Report says the British have a standing army of blacks (negroes) ten thousand strong in Canada ready tor hostile operations in the South. The result of the demand by this Govern ment ot the American banta're prisoners has not been heard from. If the demand is not complied with, war with Mexico is in evitable. Report says the British are tur- nishing Mexico with supplies, &c. Yours, in haste, CALIM US. The lriends of Col. R. M. Johnson, in Kentucky, have nominated him'for the Pres idency. A number of laborers made the Baltimore Exchange Banfc stand up to its fodder n short time ago. It appears that the bank was about to swindle them, and tney col lected in a mob and drove it into measures. The'people are not so green now a days. They are beginning to regard themselves as men, and not dogs, who are to be kicked and cuffed about by thieves qnd and blacklegs. THE BRITISH SYSTEM ORSEUVI TUDE. We republish an - elaborate arficle from the Journal ef Commerce, from the pen of an intelligent gentleman, perfectly familiar with the condition of British India, and who has thoroughly investigated the causes which incapacitate that count.-y for a success ful competition with us in the cultivation of cotton. It will be found, on perusal to be a most interesting paper. It sheds a flood of light, not only in regard to the ag ricultural rivalship with which England threatens to overwhelm the industry the Southern States of this Union by the serf labor of her Asiatic dominions, but also upon me very benevolent, most indulgent, and just principles on which she administers government there. The National Iutelligencer gave its rea ders, a few days since, a letter on the same subject, which we lay before the public, that it may have an opportunity of compar ing the views of intelligent men having dif ferent bases. The letter copied by the Na-1 tional Intelligencer, it will' be seen, is writ ten by an American who has enlisted in the British service, and is employed in India to effect the British project of transferring to Asia the cotton growing business, which ha? been matured in this country, and which has contributed so much to the comfort of nations, and especially to build up the man ufacturing and commercial wealth of Eng land. The writer of this letter seems to be a sensible, enterprising person, of coarse sen timents, having very little of patriotic fee lings as regards his own country, which he has deserted, and as little sensibility for the oppression of the foreign race among whom he has cast his lot. He very bluntly gives an account of his relations towards them, which he seems to consider only with a view to drive to the utmost the authority which he derives under the British Government to fleece them. And in giving the history of his own mode of proceeding, he presents, in a more simple manner than we have ever before seen it exhibited, the system of servi tude as enforced by England on the hapless helpless hundred millions of slaves whom she holds in bondage under a military coer cion. From the Savannah Republican. The followingletter from one of the Amri can cultivators who went to India from the interior of this State with Captain Bayles' is worthy of perusal on more accounts than one: ZlLLA. BuNDLECCND ScMCAPOORE October 1, 1811. That you may understand the position of my affairs, I must make an explanation cf the tenure by which landed propenv is held m this country. The B-itish Government claims the proprietorship of the whole soi which is divided into villages. A body of land isalloted to each village, and consider ed as belonging to it. On this the Govern ment fixes a rent for a term of years to such of the most responsible men of the place as are desirous of hireing it. These men do not cultivate all the lands, but rent them out again to the poorer classes at an increased rate. So long as the rent is paid punctually the lessees cannot be ejected from the proper ty; but under the present Government they manage so badlv, that they are seldom able or willing to pay their rent for a succession of years. When this happens, the villages are put up at auction and sold for the amount of the Government dues. Under the native Princes the thing was managed differently; for when they refused to pay up he only marched his troops down upon them killed a few, and then the rent was always forthcoming. It may seem strange, but so it is, the villages were more properous under that system of Government than at present, probably owing to other circumstances. For nstance, the Rajah who owned the village where I am now living, collected a revenue from it of 24,000 rupees (12,000,) and now it only pays 4.UUU, (2.000,) and that with the greatest difficulty. Asa matter of course the tierson who nnrrhases nt thsf nnr.tinn I sales by government, wDl meet with oppos ition and all kinds of annoyance, especially if he isa white man; for all their efficient rights and privileges are sold with the villa ge, mis creates neartburnmss and discon tent, especially where the purchaser is a for eigner and stranger to their feelings and ha- naDiis; ai leasii nave nad to right my way inch by inch with them, and so far with suc cess; for instead of the collections being smaller, as was expected by the Government it has increased S,000 rupees. 1 fear, how ever, that they will not be able to pay the whole, for there has been almost a total fail ure of the crops of all descriptions this sea son. I arrived at this place in way and employ ed myself in looking at the lands until the planting season should arrive, which this year was unusually late. The farming months, are June, July, August and Septem ber, and the periodical rain ceased a month before the usual time, so that we had but two months rain, which is not sufficient to bring the crop to that state of forwardness requisite for standing the dry weather. For the East India Company I have done but little this year, owing to their not having furnished me the requisite working cattle, all work being tpenormed neie by oxen. 1 have heretofore planted but forty or fifty acres, which I hope will make a few bales for them; but for my own account, I stepped in rather larger, and had cultivated for me by the natives,about 200 acres, which, un til a few days, promised me 150 heavy bales It was as full of bolls, squares, and blossoms, as it could f stick, but now it has commenced feeling the premature drought to which I referred, and is shedding badly. - This is rather discouraging for a pioneer, but l am pertectly satisfied that cotton will a a grow here as well as in any other country, and can be made at much less cost. I can hire five men here for what would be paid in Georgia fer a sixteen years old boy," and as many laborers as I want at Jive cents a day and Jind themselves', and rents only cost S2 25 an acre. So you see it does not re quire much means to hire a whole village with all its land and inhabitants. I have made arrangements to go into it largely next year, as 1 can command any amount ot mon evl want for investments in farming. What a comment does this letter afford, touching the vast solicitude now affected by England about African slavery? Tne race whom she holds in the worst condition that slavery can possibly assume, were a civilized people skilful in many arts of great his toric renown and, when subjected to Brit ish power, accustomed as a nation to gran deur and exalted as a people by ali the proud feelings which such a state is calculated to inspire. , To what a condition the empireof the Moguls is reduced under British sway, our countryman's unvarnished letter veryi plainly tells. The British do not give them selves the trouble of introducing the recip rocal dutygrowingoutof the relation of mas ter and servant. They appropriate the whole soil of India as British property, and the people are permitted to exist upon it by paying whatever their task-masters choose to impose. Tillages and whole tracts of country are sold to the h'ghest bidder, and whatever his avarice may prompt him to extort, is the measure of the slavery endur ed by the population purchased by him of the Government, lie takes no interest in the agricultural labors of those out of whose sweat his wealth ia amassed. He does not aid their efforts with his instruction or his care. He does not afford the unfortunate, the o!d, or the sick, succor in their struggles. It is no matter to him that the season is unpropitious iff. enough bo raised to satisfy his demand. He takes the products of what he calh his fields, and leaves such of the thriftless people who could not con trive to produce enough to satisfy his avarice and their own wants, to perish of famine. Thou sands, it appears from authentic British authori ty, perish annually under the beneficient system of free labor working on enslaved soil. England, it will be remembered, introduced African slavery into her Americn colonies. The relation of master and slave, as it grew up in our domestic institutions, where both became associated as actual tenants of the soil, has been discovered to be unsuited to the ambition of the Island sovereignty, which would spread its dominion over all the continents. Indepen dence of British sway was tho consequence of the power which grew up on this continent, in the fee simple homesteads in which both mas ter and slave became rooted, and mutually con tributed to make producive and prosperous. The wealth and strength thus created, spurned dis tant authority. England has now changed her policy. She makes a separation of inter est between the laborer and proprietor of the soil in her distant plantation?, and produces a siatejof things which makes itjnecessary that her military force shall always hold the mastery; and while it enables the propriety class to strip the laboring class, puts the first always in the power of the Government. The boasted phi lanthropy of England, its abhorrence cf slavery, when scanned, resolves itself into a systematic policy to establish slavery in a form which des troys the intimate and mutually beneficial rela tion growing out of what may be called tho pat riarchal or family condition, and substitutes that where both master andf slave are subjected to a military despotism. Globe, OUR STATE CURRENCY The Mobile merchants have at length, taken the subject of the currency in hand and have published an agreement, signed by a large number of the most respectable mercantile houses in that city, in which they declare their determination to receive our State Bank paper at its real and not its nominal worth, one paper dollar of our money is worth really no more than 7 cents and the whole state, its agricultural as well as its mercantile interest, must necessarily suffer by continuing to retain a currency that is involving it more deeply every day in foreign debt and domestic embarrass ment. Such a currency, too, has tke inev itable tendency to drive away all other kinds of a better character, and to exclude them effectually, as long as its condition remains so low in credit. As for our part, as the Legislature of last winter failed, we will not say from what cause, to do their duty, we believe the mer chants of Mobile have adopted the only right and best remedy now left to save them ie - fr rn:n 9n,i ln wnA n GVStm . . i t- i i t that we believe has done no good, but much evil, to the true interest of the State, and which never was and never could have been really necessary to its prosperity. Mont gomery (Ala.) Advertiser. ALABAMA MONEY. The Kuntsville Democrat of the lGth inst. says: 1 na resources of our banks are abun dant. The amount of denosites and circulation is estimated at about eight millions to redeem which the banks have in their vaults about one and a half millions of specie, and a like sum in exchange on New Orleans and tha eastern cit ies; whilst the debts owing to the institution are but little short of twenty millions two-thirds of which may be considered good and will be ulti mately collected." The editor says the -'cause of this sudden decline in the value of Alabama bank notes, is mainly attributable to the influ ence of brokers oa the one hand, and th reports which have gone abroad that our banks are a- bout to receive in payment of debts, the State bonds due some twenty years hence, and which are now selling in the public market in New York at fifty cents in the dollar."

THE proprietor of Hull's Pills (from the expe rience of the last four years) feels himself authorised in asserting aod war&nting his pills to be the most innocent and perfectly efficient remedy ever offered to the public, and is really what it purports to be, a certain, speedy and per manent cure for all cases whatever of ape and fever, or chills and fever. Such has hen its very great success in all those districts of coun try where it Las been used, that it has supplanted almost every other remedy; and by its uniform cer tainty in curing this very disagreeable and some times distressing disease, has gained the entirs confidence of the public and approbation of the medical faculty. Indeed, many of the most prom inent and distinguished practitioners, in various parts of the western coantry have such confidence in its super, or efficacy, that they give it a deci ded preference over all other remedies, and uni formly prescribe it their practice for this diseasp . The superiority which is claimed for this medi cine over all others, is that independent of its being a speedy and certain cure it is the most per fectly innocent remedy known. Infants, females and persons of the most deli cate constitutions, may take it without the least fear of any unpleasant effect, and will find their general health and vigor restored by its use. The proprietor would recommend persona ' living in places subject to this disase, to keep a constant supply by them, moro particularly where medical aid cannot bo readily obtained; and he would ask druggists and country mer chants who deal in medicines, to give his medi. cine a trial in their neighborhoods as he is fully prepared to warrant it to cure m every case, if the directions are followed; and as an evidence of its popularity the sales are rapidly increasing annually, and the very high reputation which it has enjoyed for the last four years, throughout tho Southern and western Statas, is fully us- tained. lie has now in his possession innumar able centificates and letters, from merchants and persons who have used and sold it, as we!! as from physicians ot the ntgnest respeciawiuy.in. various parts of the country, all of whom bear ample testimony to its great curative power indeed since jthe proprietor lirst ottered it to the public (now four years,) he can, with truth say, that he believes at least one hundred thousand cases of ague and fever, or chills and fever, have been permanently cured by us use without its having failed in a single instance where tho directions have been followed. In many cases, a single dosohas been sufficient to effect a cure, and entire families of six or eight persons have been cured by a single box, and other cases of long standing which have resisted all other pop ular remedies and regular medical treatment, have readily yieldod to this medicine. The proprietor would respectfully invite the attention of the faculty generally to his medi cine and ask of them to give it a fair trial in their practice, as ha feels fully assured, that from its laxative and powerfully diaphoretic properties, they will find a much more effective tonic than quinine and the other medicines now in use.

PROSPECTUS ' For a new Democratic Paper at Holly Spring?, Mi., to be called THE GUARD. . ROBERT JOSSELYN, Editor. Democracy loves the light which truth sheds upon every subject. It studies no concealment, resorts to no temporary expedients, adheres strictly to first principles. It is founded upon the belief that the people are capable of self government. To this end, it encourages Gen eral Education as the accompaniment of Uni versal Suffrage. It seeks to enlighten and re form, and to increase tho prosperity and hap piness of mankind. Hence, it is the generous patron of the Newspaper Press, because.through its instrumentality, :he greatest amount of use ful information can be communicated to the greatest number in tho shortest time and at the least expense. Newspapers, well conduct ed, in a free country, exert an almost incal culable influence upon the public mind. Tho mportance, of having, at some central point in North Mississippi, a permanent weekly Jour nal, devoted to the good old causo of Dem ocratic Truth, and expressing the opinions, views and feelings of its numerous and intel ligent population, must be seen and acknowl edged by all. From its central position, in the midst of one of the largest and most fer tile counties of the Chickasaw Purchase, the number and character of its inhabitants, to gether with its mail facilities, now ample, but soon to be enlarged, Holly Springs unques tionably presents equal, if not superior, advan tages for the establishment of such a Jour nal to any other town of the State. It will be the aim of the editor to make his paper what its name would indicate a Guard to the Constitution of the State and Ihe United States; a Guard to the Domestic Institu'ion-s of the South, which arc guaran teed by those sacred instruments; a Guard to the Union, and to the pure fundamental principles of Democracy, which can alone strengthen, sustain and perpetuate it; and a Guard also to the literary taste and morale of the community in which it may circulate. Arrangements have been made to procure tho earliest information of the proceedings of tho Slate Legislature and of Congress. Week ly correspondents, both from Jackson and Wash ington City, have beei secured, and the edit or will spare no time, labour or ex-pense, necessary to render his paper worthy the libera patronage of the put lie.
