HR M OCR ATIC CONVENTION.
Since the issuance of the Proclamation of ihelOihof July, all with whom we have conversed agree in appointing that the time for the assemblage of the. new Convention. 'The fovrthcf July had been suggested by the Eestern Clarion, and seemed to meet the approbation of the proclamation of the Ex ecutivc. Smce its promulgation we have seen in person, the intelligent editor of the Clarion who urged us to name the 1-0 th of July- The HNy Springs Guard of the 31st u!t.,ttkewise suggests the time for the meet ing of the Legislature as a "convenient op portunity for holding the convention." Jt says: "New Cosventio:.; It will ' be seen by the extract from the Miasissippian which we publish this week, thai the central commit tee, appointed by the late Jackson Convene lion have recommended a new one. We hope the Democrats of the several counties will hold meeting as soon as convenient and appoint delegates. We look forward with much pleasure at the prospect of union harmony and consequent victory.. It is thought by some that Gov. Tucker will shortly convene the Legislature. If so this will furnish a most convenient opportunity for holding the new convention. The dem ocratic member could be appointed delei gate? with instructions when thay might be deemed necessary. The light is breaking in upon as." We think now, we may safely presume, lilt J tllVtvil vw"'-"- that all difference as to the time for conven ing, is at an end; and since the withdrawal of Gen. Brown from the canvass, all agree that a second meeting is necessary, except the neck or nothing friends of Col Thos. H. Williams. In relation to the position which this gentleman occupies, we beg leave to a- dopt the following very appropriate remarks from the pen of our contemporary of the Columbus Democrat: And we would call upon. Colonel Will iams too if the democratic press have not lost his ear. We would entreat him to pause in his course to retrace his steps and recall his ill-timed, injudicious and suicidal annun ciation of himelf as an independent candid ate. llle cannot be elected if he runs 'on hi own hook' he stands no earthly chance of it. And the whigs will not take him up. Let him not' lay that fluttering unction to his soul. He differs with the democratic party on the bond question, but surely that difference ouht not to drive him to a course calculated to divids and defeat the party with which he has always acted on national politics. Let him remember and take warn ing from the example and fate of Judge White, of Tennessee. If he continues in his present position, and, persists in running egainst the regular nominee, he will ineviia ble become estrauged from his party, and lose all chances of future proration. We hope that it is not yet too late for him to take 4the back track Prudence and patriotism alik require it of him." Th editor of the Democrat rruxiLanps Jiis remarks in regard to Ihe convention, thus. "We have nothing to fear but our own tliIsinne nnt to la nr. trno A'omnnr-t t rr ni triot who will not do all in his powes to pro mote harmony in our ranks. Let us buckle our shields together and in Macedonian phal anx march to the polls next November, and a ereat and glorious victory will most as suredly crown our efforts. The whigs are already becoming frightened at the prospect before them and as soon as they find that we have selected a ticket which will give general satisfaction to the party they will ily ingloriously from the field." Nothing more conclusively shows the tre pidation which the prospect of a restoration of harmony in the democratic ranks has cre ated among the whigs, than their course to wards Gov. Tucker, since the issuance of his proclamation for the assemblage of the Legislature. A few weeks ago they were fierce in their denunciations, because it was believed the Executive would not appoint an extra session: Now they charge him with D.avinsr into the hands of his party and with convoking the Legislature for party purposes. -Mississippia7t. From th Vicksborg Sentinel. A GREAT MAN FALLEN ! THE PEO PLES' CHAMPION DEAD!! DR. JA'S HAGAN IS 'NO MORE!!! It becomes our painful duty to announce the cold blood ed Assassination of the Proprietor of this Journal yesterday -afternoon at 3 o'clock P. M., at the hands of D. -W. Adams, son of Judge Geo. Adams of Jackson. Dr. Hagan as was his won't, was returning from his boardinz house to this office after dinner, when the individual named above, walked up behind him, and struck Dr, Hagan over the head with a cane, a scuffle ensued, which brought both parties to the ground, Dr. Ha pan being on top. While in this position Adams pulled out a short barrelled Pistol, bringing the muzzle round to the back of th neck of the deceased. The ball struck the spine and passed up into the posterior part of the head causing instant death. Dr. Hagan was unarmed, and no one hear him to render any assistance. The corpse was carried to the residence of James B. Hayes where an inquest was holden on the bodv. AdarflS sfter art examination before the magistrate, was flatted to bail in the sum ! end securities for the same amount. Overwhelm 'lh, ?.rief and consternation at this most piaoncai deed, we can only present the above taCts -n xeiauon Q xlls melancholy event. A more particular account will be furnished in a few days. The funeral of Dr. Hagan' will take place this day at 1 o'clock, P. M., from the residence of Mr. James B. Hayes, on Jack son street. A funeral address will also be delivered by the Rev. Mr. Woods at the grave; - Gen Foot' will not press his pretentions for the U. S. Senate, in opposition to Mr. Bar ton, the favorite candidate of the north, but will give Jam a Cordial support. We are pleased to hear this. It is an evidence of re spect on the part of Gen. Foot, for the just rights of the north, hich will be favorably remembered hereafter. Tribune. Clay arrested by Calhoun and the Constitu tion. Wheel Mr Calhoun was at Norfolk on his way home from the last session of congress an incident occurred which some may regard as an auspicious omen. We give the occur rence as related to us by "a gentleman of this city, on the authority of an officer of the navy who was present, and at the time promised to send us an account which how ever has not come to hand yet. Mr. Calhoun was invited and handsomely entertained on board the Constitution: and while that gak lant vessel was saluting hirru the wads shot away a part of the rigging of a sloop which was sailing by and brought her to, under the stern of Old Iron Sides. On nailing her with offers of assistance to repair the unto ward damage she turned out much to the amusement of those in the frigate to be"TAe Henry CZay."--It is not the first time that "Old Table Rock,"as some body in Georgia has nicknamed the cast iron tribune of the people, has had to do with disabling the high reaching Buckingham of the west, by dis charges from the batteries of the constitution but may we not hope that under the pecu liar circumstances, the above related inci-. dent may prefigure the results of the canvass of 1811? Charleston Mercury. Morality in Vermont. We have always admired the brave old Green Mountain State; her people are, ninety-nine in a hundred, honest, frugal, industrious and independant. But they go farther, according to a state ment we have iust seen, than tli wnrM would give them credit for.' The following story is told by the Mercury: "A young man arrived at Windsor in the stage and ap plied for admission to the State Prison showing the papers which entitled him to a resident there. It seems he had been cons victedat Montpelier of some offence senten ced to the State Prison for six months, and in order to save expense was fitted out with his papers and sent on to Windsor by stage, without sheriffor other attendant? On reach ing Woodstock the stage by accident left him, but he coolly waited a day and took the next stage. Errors of the Press. A late German papei gives the following as examples of conscientious ness on the part of a certain class of newspa pers thereabouts: "We stated lately that an Englishman named f lodges had invented a new cement, by which pieces of iron could be joined .toge ther, so as to ba as strong as one solid piece. Our statement was not exactly correct. 1 he inventor's name is Jeffrey, not Hodge;; and the cement is not for iron, but joins wood so firmly there is no neces sity for nails." Another case: "YVe mentioned lately that the town of Mes sina, in Sicily, had been destroyed Byan earth quake. We feel called upon tocorreci this ac count, by stating that the town is not in Scicily, but on the Danube; and is not called Messina, but Belgrade; and that it was not destroyed by an earthquake, but a dreadful conflagration had occurred in it." The Vice Presidency. The Guard in commenting upon the national ticket iust hoisted by the Mississippian, confidently ex presses the opinion that Gov. Polk is the choce of North Mississippi for the Vice Presidency. We haye no doubt of it. Gov. Polk is far better known to the people than any other candidate. Mr, Walker is known to be U. S. Senator very much as Mr. Tyler is known to be President It is a part of the history of the times. Mr. Walker has un doubted talents, but he is not vain enough to suppose himselt superior to Ltov folk. A feeling of State pride, it is true, might be got up so as to induce a preference of him, were it not thai the same sort of pride now ex ists so strongly here in favor of James Ki Polk that it cannot be overcome. Tribune. Death by Snake Bite. Mr. Mayberry called on us a day or two since, and gave us the history of a death caused by the bite of liattie bnake, the termination of which is made somewhat interesting in donsequence ot the speedy dissolution which ensued. Mr. M. accompanied by one or two of his sons was hunting Deer in an adjoining ex tensive prair where the grass was very high. All ot a sudden the horse which he was rid ing sloped and raised one of the forefeet from the ground, the blood from which was soon perceived to bs flowing profusely, the cause of which was soon ascertained to be the bfte of a very large diamond Rattle Snake, on the inside of the leg near the pas tern. The snake was killed immediately, and every exertion used to reclaim the horse but all skill was buffled by the ravages of the poison, and the poor animal, in extreme unparaleled agony, expired in tventy min utes as near as could be adjudged under the circumstances. We venture the opinion that but few if anv, have ever witnessed so speedy a dissolution from the bite of a snake as was consumated in the death of this horse or if at all, it is of quite seldom occurrence Miss.

Reports having been circulated which are calculated to injure me, in reference to the manner in which I have discharged he du ties of County Treasurer, I take this op portunity of requesting those whose interest I have in care, to suspend their judgment un til the true facts of the case can be ascer tained; and. I feel confident that those who have so often trusted me, will not feel dispo sed, at this late day to condemn me un heard. Jo one in any capacity, public ot private, however conscientious in the dis charge of the duties of his office or calling, however long he may have walked upright in the paths of honor and integrity, is safe or free from the secret malice of the slan derer or the fa'seaccusations of open enemies. Men who follow no occupation loafeis by nature, improved by long habit, are apt, in the total OTit-xrf firry btrsineJS of-theirxjwn, to meddle in matters of which thev can and do have no correct knowledge or infor mation; and whether from malice or revenge, or a natural propensity for falsehood origin ate slanderous reports, abusive ot the charac ter and destructive of the reputation of inno cent persons, and many in their surprise and indignation at the report, forget trft source from whence it came, and its propagation bt comes its only proof. It is from the injus tice of such attacks, -that I appeal to you, who placed me in office, and to whom I am accountable.' Although 1 have held the office for a con siderable length of time, have acted in strict accordance withtho statutes of the State, defi ning the duties of the office, and have submit ted full and ample reports of my actions and of yie state of the Treasury, to the rouce court, which fs bound to take notice of, and examine the same, and notwithstanding that my Reports thus made, have been examined and uniform ly approved by this tribunal, time after time, I have been accused of speculation and defal cation. If this is true. I should suffer as all should, who, in betraying a public trust, betray the confidence, and injure the interest, not of one, but of all. If it is noi, a mark should be placed upon the slanderer, and justice done t o the innocent. And, in order that you may be able to know the facts, and decide correctly, I have requested a number of the most respec table citizens of the county, to take up on Alon day next, the details of my office from the time I entered it; and to make you a statement of its condition, and of my official acts from the be ginning to the present time; and, I repeat, that I hope you will suspend your opinion until their report and their decision shall show whether I have been unfaithful, or whether I have been true to your interest, and mindful of the trust you have placed in my hands.
