HOLLT SPRINGS:::;::::.-:"0 VEMBER WHO MADE THE BANKS IN MIS SISSIPPI The editor ofthe Gazei'e, in his last num ber asks us, if we ar. willing lo endorse the artic!e, which we republished from the Gren ada Herald, in relation to the Mississippi Banks e 'ave not nt an 0PPoriun,ly of exarr.inif'? ti e Journals of the Legislature, but have no !.ubt, from our knowledge of ;he editorial the gentlemen who conduct .Tenartrnenl lne Herald, that their state- fl-tCX Of lilt o upun titc 1.11UI it i of the several Banks mentioned, is substan tially correct. No man, who knows any thin- of the history of our State, for the 3 -11 .1 1 .L. . r .i tran nr.n Un. Uriarn last ten years, peicuu 10 aeny, inai manv prominent democrats, who have ta ken a distinguished part in it3 afTairs, have been advocates of the Banking System, and have aided, by their influence and voles, in the establishment of all our banks. But then , it is equally true, and the whigs should ack nowledge it, that nearly all the opposition to the banks has proceeded from the Democ racy. The whigs, at one time, were almost unanimously bank men. They called the banks the "Institution of the country" and continually charged upon the Democrats an inclination to destroy them. When Elec tions were pending, they were in Ihe habit of making this an issue, and, such was the influence of the Banks, so strong a hold had they upon the supposed interests of the people, that, by this means they were often enabled to triumph. But after the banks lost their power and become odious, the whis seemed anxious to throw off the bur den, which their former zealous advocacy of them fastened upon them. They began to insist, as they do now, that because several of the Legislatures, who chattered banks, had democratic majorities , the democrats were responsible for them, a most unfair conclusion not warranted by facts. How were most of the bank charters obtained? A portion of the Democrats, voting with nearly all the whigs, constituted a bank ma jority, which, unhappily for the people, con trnled the destinies of the State. Let us il lustrate this by a supposed case. We wil suppose a Legislature of Mississippi, with a democratic majority of 5 in the Lower House and 3 in the Senate. The whigs of Natch i or Vicksburg petition for a new bank charter. Five democrats in the House and three in the Senate vote with the whigg, con stituting a bank tnajorily, and thus the char ter is obtained. Would it not be the high th of injustice to say, that the Democrats, as a parly, had created the bank and were responsible for all the ruinous consequences whirh followed? Everv candid man will answer this question in the affirmative. The truth is, and the people of Mississppi know it, and it is vain and idle to attempt a denial, that the rreat bodv of the whigs have been in favor of our banks and the great body of the Democrats against them. Scarcely a shadow of opposition to them has proceeded from any other than a democratic source. The on v appearance to the contrary arose s t a from the self interest of the whigs of Natch ez and Vicksburg, who wished to make i monopoly of banking, and keep all the profits within themselves. We would call the attention of the Editor of the Gazette to the following which we re publish from the Southron for his special ben efit. Who now was gulled? Ah! Mr. John son, your publishers not only "hoaxed" the democratic. "Register at Marion, but the dis cerning whig Editor of the Holly Springs Gazette also, who pounced right upon us for daring to doubt the genuinness of the Decis ion. Was not this a little cruel? The editor of the Guard, in his last num. ber, did not Intend to deny the fact of Mr. Pagaud's release at St. Louis by habeas cor- pus but the authenticity of the pretended de cision of the Missouri Judge, as jriven in the Southron. Will the editor of that pa per assert that it is genuine? It bears the marks of fabrication on its face, which can not be mistaken. No Judge would make such allusions or use such language. Le the editor of the Southron, who is a gentle man of honor and character, and who, it an pears, was absent when the publication was made, speak out candidly on the subject and the public will then see who has been gulled. -Holly Springs Guard.. The editor of the Southron is not prepar ed to say that the legal opinion in the Pa gaud case, as it appeared in the Southron, is "genuine " Of course it is not; nor was it expected that the affair would be so regard ed by persons of much discernment. The editor of the Southron furnished no matter for the number containing the "opinion," in consequence of a derangement in the mail. That piece of pleasantry was served up by a correspondent, who seems to have a fond ness and talent for such composition, and inserted under the editorial head by the pub Ushers. We had nothing to do with the ar ticle. We make this explanation with much cheerfulness, although it really seems to us that the pretended "opinion" explains itself. By the way, we are in an especial good hu mor with the editor of the "Guard" at this moment, for the complimentary manner in which he is pleased to speak of us in the fore going extract and in all sincerity, we recip rocate the sentiments. Southron. THE GAZETTE AND THE LATE ELECTIONS. Our neighbour of the Gazette seems to be out of humor with his Brethren in Ohio, and calls them the "rascalh whigs" &c. He has given, at last, briefly, as we suggested, the election results in several of the States, and tries to comfort himself with the anticipation of the tremendous flogging, which the demo crats will receive in 1844. Well.afterall.these whigs are truly a very extraordinary sort of folks! If they beat us, they exalt;and if we beat them, they exult! If they carry a State e- lection, it is a sure indication tha t Clay will get the vote of the State, and if the election is carried against them, this is, if possible, a more certain indication. They usually crow more over a defeat than the Democrats do over a victory. They are great at expla nation and have a wonderful facility uf chan ging their arguments to suit the special oc casion. For instance, when the Democrats of Louisiana elected their flovernor and lost the Legislature bv a small maioritv j - -j j t they told us, we were to regard the Legisla ture, as determining the political character of that State, and when they secured the Governor and lost the Legislature of North Carolina they said the vole for Governor was the true test of the strength of the respec tive parties. What a happy temperament of mind that must be which can find conso lation in every thing! We like many of the Whigs exceedingly tvell, and rejoice to see them fast coming over to cooperate with us for the good of the country. We hope our democratic friends will not make too much noise over their late important victories, so as to irritate the whigs.foryou never can con vince a man that he is in the wrong, while he is mad. Now we are somewhat fearful, that we exhibited last week a little too much of the "Chapman" tone for the benefit of our neighbour, Falconer, which caused him to speak so harshly of his brethren in Ohio. We know how he feels. Just let him ima gine how we all felt when whipped by the "Coon" in IS 10 and keep calm and be com forted. Our beautiful village, (we must not let the Gazette get ahead of us in complimenting the town we lite in) has been crowded and en livened for the last week by strangers.attrac- ted by the Methodist Conference. Wealth beauty and wit, piety and parade, devotion, both temporal and eternal, have all been ex hibited and, in a certain sense, mingled to gether. We regret that" the weather fias been most unfavorable, commencing with wind and dust and ending in rain and mud. Of course a fine opportunity was presented for the young men, the steady old bachelors and the lively and heartv widowers.'to dis- j j olav their callanlrv. and. we understand 4 W " they have not been weighed in the ballancea and found wanting." We believe our good people have extended a liberal hospitality to the brethren of the Conference, so, take all in all, we feel proud of our village, and have only to lament that we have been pre vented, a great portion of the time, by ill ness, from enjoyin g, as we could have wish ed, the society of many old friends who have been here, and listening to the many exce I lent sermons which, we are informed, have been delivered. A Blow at Commerce is one at tub La boring Man. The working people of this city are greatly dissatisfied with the new tariff. Ship-carpenters, caulkers, and labor ing men, are vainly seeking labor to earn bread for their families. Commercial enter prize seems to be paralyzed, and hundreds of poor men are cursing that unequal aud cruel policy which, to protect a few lordly manu facturers, drives them to penury and want. CnANGiNo Names. A law was passed at the last winter's session of the Ohio Legislature which confers authority upon the Courts of Common Pleas, in the several counties of Ohio, to change the names of persons. Those citizens of Ohio, therefore, who may wish to get rid of bad and ugly names can do so by giving thirty days notice in some news paper, and showing reasonable cause' for the chanere. Young ladies, it is added, still have the privalege of changing their names in the eood old wav. We advise the Universal Whig party to avail itself of this generous law. Jflebeian. Absence or Mrd.-W have just got our finger upon an old case of absence ot mind, that is infinitely better than anything mod em we have1 ever seen. In some respects La Fontaine was not unlike Oliver Gold smith: both were forgetful, generous, unaf fected. The French poet almost forgot he had a wife: and when his friends told him it was a shame to absent himself from her, promised to call and see her. The servant nnt lnr.mrf KJm c.lid she WSS COTlt to hnNh rwrv nKirh h returned to Pans m the company of his friends. Being one day at a house, his son came in; duiuui uaiuS seen him for some time, he did not recog nize him, but remarked to some of the corn nan v. that he thought him a very promis- inr xx. hen lis was his own son. "Aha!" exclaimed the poet, "upon my soul, I'm very glad to heartit." From the Globe. THE INSIGNIA OF WHIGERV. It is a remarkuble fact, that nations, par tie5, and individuals have, have, :n all ages aptly chosen some device to exemplify their characters; and generally the inferior tribes of animals furnish, in some peculiar and stri king attribute, the characteristic suited to make the distinction sought to be displayed. It is evident, from the universality of this propensity, that it has its foundation in our nature. There is scarcely a personage of a ny distinction among the Indian tribes who has not a representative among the birds or bears of the wilderness. Keokuck, the crat ty chi of ofthe Foxes, is christened with the name of the sly, prowling vagabond, whose instinct his tribe have adopted, to designate the species of policy which they hold in the highest estimation. The Mad Buffalo is the name and device of a chiel of another tribe, who dashes head long into any danger, and trusts to his bulk and impetus to overthrow and defeat it; and his cap is surmounted with buffalo horns.- We once knew a shrewd little Indian chief who depended on well meditated frauds for his importance: he was called "the Little Owl." When we saw him at Vincennes, in 1811, where he overreached Gen. Harrison for a saddle and bridle, by telling him he travelled a thousand miles to oppose the ri sing hostilities among the Indians against nose tied and managed with a grape vine for bridle this ill-boding messenger ot le- cumseh had his visage dressed in feathers ike an owl, until nothing was visible of his ace but his curved nose and staring eyes. He put on the very look, and spoke in the shivering voice of the screech-owl. This emblematic mode of displaying the qualities of which people are proud, runs al so into their religion and politics, and is as remarkable among civilized as savage na tions. It is old as iagypt and her hvero- glyphics. France and England the peo ple with whose peculiarities we are most fa miliar nre so characteristically marked by the traits of the animals which have, imme- morially, been connected with their armorial ensigns, that one would suppose that they, in the lapse of ages, endeavored to conform their characters to that of the animals figur ing on their flags. The blood-loving lien that lies in wait, and leaps from a covert up on its feeble prey, unconscious that the re morseless devour was near if a memoir of its spoliations among the weaker races in Africa were written, would give us the his tory of the exploits of Great liiitain. So the cock, whose gallant strut and crow in vite battle from the brave, and the love and dependence ofthe effeminate, is a fit emblem ot the "chivalry and gallantry of t ranee; while the enp.tying, unsparing cruelty ot it3 roused spirit, marks the most hoinble trait in French character. Our own free, strong, far-sighted eagle seldom obtruding itself upon the conflicts of the world, and seek ing a high and solitary destiny is, we think, a fine type of the genius oFour government, and the spirit 01 the patriotic men that gave birth to it, and of those who still support it. But there is another class among us, who have taken a very different device and certainly a very appropriate one to dis tinguish them as a separate party Irom the mass of their countrymen: we mean those who have chosen the raccoon; (or, as they fondly and familiarly phrase it, "that same old coon") as a personification'of all the in stincts and habits which belong to them as a party. When a boy, we hunted, and sometimes endeavored to domesticate the raccoon when j eluded? By such logic, itmay be easi caught young. We know something, there- J ly proved that the higher the taxes the less fore of this animal which may be consider- ed as the very head of the class called ver - min; and ot all this tribe ot roguish depreda-J tors, it is certainly the worse. Neither thel armer's poultry-yard nor his cornfield is safe from him; and what distinguishes him as worse than other petty robbers is, that he is wanton in his mischief, and destroys! much more than is necessary for his purpose. One of these busy ravagers will break down more than twenty stalks ot a tarmer's young corn in a single night, tear the shuck from the ear, and, taking a bite or two out of each, leave them to rot. The next night he continues his devastation upon the standing corn, with the same mischievous instinct of wanton rapacity that induces our tarimtes to add a few centsto their profits, to accu - mulate hundreds in burdens upon the com- munitv. Asa domesticated pet, nothing ever was found so destructive as the rac- coon. It will steal into safes and cupboards hreak the china turn over everv vessel that contains anything fluid carry off the cold meats break the eggs plough up the but - ter with its nose and, alter working it up with its paws, will then take pains to cover the floor with its tracks in grease, and to fill the whole house with its own otlensive odor: We think the country which has do mestieated "the coons" in its high places, will find that thev have ordered their econ nmv mettv much alter this fashion.

Such singular unanimity has pervaded our Stale that we have scarcely thought it worth while to say anything about the subject. It is well to remark however that in very few corners has anything like a Whig party p peared even, and that wherever there" has been a contest the Democrats have been tri umphant. One Whig has been elected to the legislature, in Columbia, not in a party struggle and we understand not on pany grounds. In Pendledon, where alone they had any clains to party strength, the majori ty against them is decisive. Mercury OPERATION OF THE TARIFF. The New York Commercial says: "The operation ofthe new tarifflaw has been tes ted by or.e month of experience. The re sult is, that the average of duties upon im ports, of every sort, is just about thirty per cent, advalorern, and no more. So much for the howlings of the destructive press agai nst what they have predicted would be a pro hibitory tariff." National Intelligencer. It is seldom th?it one pretending to logic is so stupid as to bring formerd facts w hich prove nothing, or destroy his own positions; yet the above statement from the Commer cial is precisely of this character. In the first place, does the Commercial tell its readers that itsaverage of duties includes commodities which have paid no duties at all those imported free? and, in the second place, does it inform them of- the amount of articles excluded trom importation by the high duties, and therefore paying no duty? These are no inconsiderable items, when es timating the duties paid by the late tariff, or their general average. The first swell the imports, but produce no duty, conse quently raducing the rate of the general av erage; thelulter, (the prohibited articles,) excluded altogether from the account, are precisely those classes of commodities on which, in reality, the, highest taxes are paid not. indeed into the custom-house, but in to the factories. The free list, enacted en tirely for the benefit ofthe manufacturer, was estimated in Congress to be from fifteen to twenty millions of dollars, exclusive of tea and coffee- What amount of taxes is paid on the commodities prohibited from im portation by the tariff, of course can never be exactly ascertained; but the rate of duties roquired by the manufacturers to produce their prohibition, is a pretty fair criterion of the but den. lhese average irom lorty to two and three hundred per cent, on all ar ticles entering into general consumption- Now.it may often happen that low duties only are collected on commodities for the very reason that they are high; and the most extravagant tariff may produce the lowest average. lase si:ks, tor instance, according to the late tariff, on which the duties are estimated by weight: onthe coarser and plain er silks, worn by our women in narrower circumstances, the duty is eighty per cent; but on the finer silks and laces consumed by the rich, it is only five or ten per cent. No duty, in the loner run. can be collected m . 1 1 much higher than the cost of smuggling CD which is certainly not above 20 per cent; consequently no silks will be imported pay ing a higher duty. The custom-house books will, theretore, snow the duties on silRs to be 20 per cent; but will they show the extent ofthe burden of taxation imposed on silks? Will they show the amount smuggled, or ii not smuggled, will they show the buraen ot the lincreased price for the interior cotton ar ticle. which the consumer has been forced to take of the domestic manufacturer, in stead of the substantial and cheaper silk ex- they are; and that when prohibition takes 1 place and no duties, consequently, are col lected on the commodities excluded the enormous tax by which the prohibition is I effected is just no tax at all. Universal pro I hibition would be universal exemption from taxation. Whilst writing,, we cannot refrain from I mentioning an instance.btely communicated I to us, ofthe operation of this beneficent tar- iff averaging 'Must thirty per cent, ad val orem, and no more." A parcel of goods, previous to the enactment of the late tariff. I had been ordered, costing sixteen hundred dollars. When they arrived in New York I the duty demanded was seven thousand dol- lars. Ot course, the goods were repacked 1 and reshipped. The coarse woollen fancy vestings worn by the poorer classes, having 1 an occasional spot of silk on them, by this tariffare considered to be silk, and pay duty accordingly by weight. Of course, they al- so are excluded from importation. And be- I cause men complain of such legislation, their J complaints are denounced a3 the "howlings of destructives." rederalism is ever true to its instincts; and to tread down and crush the poor and helpless, seems to be its special vocation and toul lalautv! vrlobe.

DESPISE NOT SMALL BEGINNINGS. It is related, in the Gentleman's Magazine, of Chantrey, the celebrated sculptor, that, when a boy, he was observed by a gentle man in the neighborhood of She rlield, very attentively cutting a stick with a penknife. He asked the lad what he was doing; when, with great simplicity of manner, but with courtesy, he replied, "I am cutting old Fox's head." Fox was the schoolmaster of the vil lage. On this, the gentleman, asking to see what he had done, and pronouncing it to be an excellent likeness, presented the youth with a sixpence. And this may be reckon ed the first money Chantrey ever received for the production of his art. This anecdote is but one of a thousand that might be cited of as many different men, who, from small beginnings, rose to great slations and influence, and shows the impor tance of not despising the day of small things in any condition or circumstances of life. All nature, in fact,is full of instructive les sons on this point which Jit would be well for us more thoroughly to study and appre ciate. ! The river, rolls onward its accumulated waters to the ocean, was, inits small be ginning, but an oozing rill trickling down some moss-covered rock, and winding, like a silver thread, between the green banks to which it imparled verdure. The tree, that sweeps the air with its hundred branches, and mocks at the howling of the tempest, was in its small beginning, but a little seed, trodden under " footand unnoticed; then a small shoot that the leaping hare might have forever crushed. Everything around us tells us not to des pise small beginnings, for they are the lower rounds of a ladder that reaches to great re sults, and we must step upon these before we can ascend higher. Despise not small beginnings of wealth. The Rothschilds, 'Ginird, Astor, and most ofthe richest men, began wiih small means. From cents they proceeded to dollars; frc hundreds to thousands, Irom thousands to millions. Had they neglected these first earnings; had they said within themselves, what is the use of saving these few cents? they are of not"much value, and I wjll just spend them, and enjoy myself as 1 go thev would never have risen to be the wealthiest among their fellows. It is only bv the eco nomical husbanding of small means that they increase to large sums. It is the hardest part 01 success to gain a little; that little once gained, more will easily follow. Despise not 'small beginnings ot educa lion. Fronklin had but little early education yet look at what he became, and how he is now reverenced. Ferguson, feeding his t .it , 1 1 sneep on tne nuts 01 Scotland, picKed up merely the rudiments ot learning, but subse quently rose to be one af the first astrono meis in fcjurope. Herschel, also the great astronomer, was in his youth a drummer-boy to a marching regiment, and received but lit lie more than a drummer-boy's education but his name is now associated with the brightest discoveries of f science, and is borne by the planet which his zeal discovered. host of instances rise up to testify that, by properly improving thej small and ) erhaps impenect beginnings of knowledge, thev may become as foundaiion-slones of a tempfe ot learning, which the future shall gaze upon ana acinire. A t . ji man can scarcely be too avaricious in ihe acquisition of knowledge; he should hoard up his intellectual gains with the utmost as siduity and diligence, but unlike the lucre seeking miser, must put out his knowledge to usury, and, by lending out his stock to others, increase by this commerce of his thought his capital, until his one talent shall have become five, and his five have gained to them other five. Despise not the small beginnings of fame or honor. The fame which springs up on a sudden, ke the mushroom plant, is seldom lasting. True fame and honor are of slow, but gen erally sure growth, ascending bv degrees rom the lowest offices to the highest stations from the regard of a few to the applause of a nation. But he who despises the lower steps of honor, because they are low, will seldom reach the higher; and he who spurns at the commendation of his own circle, as too small a thing to seek after, will never secure the esteem and renown of a state or ingdom. Despise not the small beginnings of error. The walls of a castle have been undermin ed by the burrowings of small and despised animals; and the beginnings of error, though at first unheeded, will soon, if not checked, sap the foundations of truth, and build ud ts own wretched dogmas on its luins. All first errors are small; despise them not, they win sonn increase to great ones; and perhaps devastate society. Savannah Georgian. From the N. O. Picayune. OBITUARY. Departed this life on the 11th inst., in the 29th year of his age, CALVIN HENDER- bOi, Esq., of Madison Parish, La., late of Jackson, Ten. A young lawyer of fine talents, untiring industry and most respectable attainments. He had but recently settled himself in this btale, and, a short time since, left a young wife and tender infant, to attend the session of the supreme court at Alexandria. Hav ing finished his business, he started back tu Tennessee in the full vigor of health, and Mith. buoyant spirits, to take h'S family to their new home, (Milliken's Bend.) Before he got to the mouth of Red River, he was attacked with lever, and the boat having got aground, he took another and" returned 10 Alexandria lor medical aid. His eager ness to return, caused him to start again sooner than prudence would .have dictated. and he died on board. the steamer Vermill ion, before she arrived at the tnouth; having a second time lodged on the fatal sand bar. And thus, among strangers, in that desolate place, far frem kindred and friends, in the morning of life, and full vigor of manhood, he was snatched from existence and hurried to an untimely grave! About the time his affectionate wife was hourly expected again to greet him with her joyous smile andiond embrace, the chilling news reached her that he was gone forever! Oh, who, that has ne ver realised a nanglike this, can form a con ception of its horrors? May divine mercy temper the dreadful stroke to the tender vic tims! A large circle of relatives and friend are left to deplore his loss and he who tfed icales this humble tribute to departed worth, is touched with a sad emotion which be knows will meet a response in many distant sympathyping bosoms, and for them as well as himself, he would render to the kind stran gers who considered the last sad offices of humanity, tha most grateful and profound acknowledgments. In the dtep solitude of the wild foiesthe calmly reposes! No carv ed "sepulchral stone" or "storied urn," indi cates to the woild, who sleeps below the ever-gieen pine sighs mournfully over his lonely grave but his memory is enshrined in many feeling hearts, who long will cher ish it with fond regrets.
