By co-operation, as was done by these peo ple, half of the county towns of Mis sippi could raise the money to build up factories just like Port Gibson. Em body in Port Gibson has made the cot ton factory here an object of special solicitude, and the result is to be seen in the splendid building that is being erect ed in this town, and ere long the whirr of the spindle and the loom will make fine music for the people of Port Cib son. But if Port Gibson is practical, her citizens are also sentimental and patriotic, as they evidenced yesterday by the grand manner in which they buried, their for mer old neighbor and fellow-citizen, the good and great Ex-Governor Benj. (f. Humphreys, whose remains were brought to Port Gibson from the Tallahatchie river yesterday morning and buried last evening. The funeral cortege was very long first came numbers of the Com mandery, then the Claiborne Artillery, under Capt. Briscoe, then the Port (Jib son Lodge of I. O. O. F., then the Funeral Car and Pall Bearers, and the old Confederate soldiers who had served under Gov. Humphreys, or had done service anywhere, then the family and citizens generally. It was an immense procession for a small town. The remains were taken to the Metho dist Church, where a most feeling and eloquent discourse was delivered upon the character and life of the deceased by Rev. D. A. Planck, Pastor of the Pres byterian Church of Port Gibson; this was followed by a short address by Rev. Mr. Ballard; then the procession re formed and repaired to the cemetery, where the services were continued by prayer by Rev. Mr. Ballard and the rea(l ng of the beautiful burial service of the Independent Order of odd Fellows, by Maj. J. 8. Mason, and thus was put away all that was mortal of the noble hero, the soldier and christian patriot, the man who never failed when duty called. Gov. Humphrey i i i . . !

Besides this, as the Federal Government has the whole profit of the duties laid on foreign commerce, it is but fair that all sources of internal taxation should be left for the State and Municipal Governments. The money needed for these local expenses is far greater in amount than is needed by the General Government. Road, bridges, schoolhouses and schools, Courthouses and Courts, jails and charities, besides a multitude of other objects, call for money. We hope to see the eventual repeal of this nefarious system. Too Many Election Days. Grenada Sentinel. We fully agree with our able cotempo rary, Th! Clarion, that we have too many elections. They not only cost the State an xtr amount of money, but they have a tendency to disorganize labor. But the greatest evil is, that the masses become indifferent to the exercise of the franchise. Too much of any good thing is an evil, and this way of yearly elections, with their costs and excitements, is blunting the pride of the citizen as a voter, and making him careless of election results. Let us have State and Congressional elections at the same time, say we. Raymond Gazette. The Clarion says the feeling is gaining ground that our election days in Missis sippi are more frequent than necessary, and that the law ought to be changed so as to hold the elections for county and State offices at the same time members of Congress are chosen. The Clarion no doubt correctly represents the feeling of the people of the State. Women Clerks. Miss Emily Faithfull asks that more room be made for women to earn a liv ing by some personal industry. They are said to make good clerks on Govern ment work. There are 10,000 clerks at Washington. This is probably double the number that will be needed when the Department business is properly overhauled. If there are 5.000 clerks needed there, it would be well to trive was a trreat favorite many of these little places to women. at lJort Uibson, and it is said that upon proviucu mat a plan ot selection ami his last visit there, last spring, he ex-, appointment can be had which will not pressed a desire to be buried in Port Gibson when he died, and gave directions about his funeral which were fully ob served. In the death of Gov. Humph reys, Mississippi has lost one of her most beloved sons. Peace to his ashes. Yours truly, G. D. B. We are pained to hear of the death of Hon. Francis S. Lyon of Demopolis, Ala. He had reached the ripe age of eighty years, having been born in Stokes county, North Carolina, in the year 1800. He had filled many positions of honor and trust member of the Federal Con federate Congresses Chancellor, etc., and in all of which positions he had been distinguished for his ability and stern integrity. He has descended to the grave universally honored and lamented. It would seem the Republican leaders in Congress do not like the wholesome bitter of Col. Manning's very timely resolutions and have tried to suppress them by reference to committees. They will come up again nevertheless. Take Notice. Head? of families will please take no tice that at Memphis on the 28th, fifteen persons were poisoned by canned peaches which they ate at supper, and five of them arc seriously ill. The poisonis supposed to have originated I from the corrosive actiou of the acid of the fruit upon the tin cans in which it was put up. A Distinguished Mississippian. San Francisco Examiner. Some of the Mississippi papers arc re ferring in very pleasant and compliment ary terms to the success of Mr. W. W. Foote at the late election. The Jackson Clarion and Hinds County Gazette speak of him in high terms. Mr. Footc is a native of Hinds county. render these clerks dependent on Con gressmen s aid or improper influences for their places. San Francisco Exami ner. South Carolina Railroad Commission. A few days ago the South Carolina Legislature, in the face of corporation and Radical opposition, passed the bill creating the railroad commission for that State and thus placed the Game Cock State in line with other progressive SUtes of the Union. Commenting on the law, the Charleston News says: The railroad commission bill passed the House on Tuesday by an unexpectedly large majority, in very nearly the same shape as that in which it had already passed the Senate. Its provisions are of the most stringent character, and if enforced with energy and judgment, it can hardly fail to produce a good effect in curbing the rail road companies for the benefit of the pub lic. Six of the eleven Representatives from Charleston county voted in the nega tive on the passage of the bill, and in so doing went counter to the wishes of their constituents, in our judgment, and counter to the unanimous opinion of the conven tion which nominated them. It is doubt ful that any one of the number would have been nominated, had it been supposed that they would have opposed the only measure of relief for the public from railroad dis crimination which was before the Legisla ture and promised to prove advantageous. South Carolina makes the twenty-second Statc,icxt. Memphis Appeal: Mr. Morrison, of Illinois, says there Is scarcely a paragraph in' the Tariff Commissioner's report in which some cheat is not concealed, and that the result will be that, if the com mittee continues to adopt the commissions recommendations, the bill reported to the House will in some important respects materially increase duties. The duty on cotton-tics has been largely increased, which ought to be sufficient to marshal the whole strength of the South against the re port and bill. TUE RKVKXri: PKl'REASK IX CUSTOMS' I'RKDHTED.

Mrs. Langtry arrived here this afternoon and was driven directly to the Grand Pacific hotel, remaining in her palors during the entire afternoon. In the evening she appeared at Havcrly's theater in the Honeymoon. The house, was large, but not crowded. Some seata were vacant. The audience was not very fashionable and was somewhat cold. The Times will publish an interview in which she de clines to discuss her private affairs, be yond saying that she docs not believe Mrs. Labouchero gave utterance to the published statements attributed to her. She feels flattered by her reception in America, and likes all the cities she has visited except Boston, which she pro nounces cold. THE TENNESSEE LEGISLATURE. Nashville, Jan. 2. A slight sensa tion was caused in the Legislature yes terday by a passage in the opening prayer of Rev. T. A.

Farmers' deliveries of various extraneous supplies render British mil lers quite independent of the American contingent for the present.

Representative Manning left for Mis sissippi to-night. He has not yet filed his answer to Chalmers' notice of con test. It is barely possible that events have changed his previously intimated intention with regard to the character of his answer. It is reported now that it is not improbable that he will accept the certificate of election, but will not permit it to play any part in his contest with Chalmers for the right to be seated from the Second District. A refusal to accept the certificate would make a con test impossible on his part and a new election necessary. It is rumored that 5Ir. Manning goes home to look after the political prosecutions which Chalmers is instituting. Five colored persona were drowned on the 28th at Fort Barrington, Ga.

Sarah Willis was murdered in a brutal manner by her brother-in-law, Jim Cole man, at Columbia, H. C, on the 28th. She was struck with a small nx on the head which was literally crushed. Both were colored. A Congressman having performed some service for one of the executive depart ments, demanded pay for his servico. The question was raised whether a congress man could receive pay for such service. The First Comptroller of the Treasury to day decided he could. It is reported that Mr. Fred Wolfe, president of the Brunswick and Albany, intends to build a continuation of the B. and A. from Albany through the south ern portion of Georgia, Alabama and Mis sissippi into New Orleans. Tuesday night Charley Branch, a negro, who ravished and murdered a nine-year old girl near Vnrner Station, on the Little Rock and Mississippi River railway, was taken from the guards by an armed mob and hanged to a telegraph pole. At Lebanon, Ala , on the 20th a quarrel arose between two brothers named Jacoway, and a man named Bollard, anil the latter was shot and instantly killed.

The Pretty Nihilist's Story. Sophia Perovski was handsome. " little, fair bead, with a pair of serin and searching blue eyes, a broad lofl . forehead and a rosy mouth, which i smiling displayed two rows of mo beautiful teeth" such is Stepniak's d scription of her. She is a descendet. of that Rasumovsky whose beauty h flamed the passion of the Kmpress E3it. beth; her Father was governor-gener of St. Petersburg. Her desire 1 . "emancipation" was so strong that : tho age of fifteen she ran away fro her parents in order to "educate b self." She at once joined the revoi tionary party, and became one of i principal members. The most imp tant missions were intrusted to b where danger was greatest there was ! place. Tbe fair, pretty, smiling g 1 that looked like an innocent child, ' seemed but to dream of a first hn thought day and night of assassinate and planned it with the coolness of f i old soldier.

From Chambers' Journal. Even clergymen can not always hope to meet with the courtesy that draws the line at sharp rejoinders. "If you can't keep awake," said a parson to "one of his hearers, "when you feel drowsy, why don't you take a pinch of snuff? " "I think," was the shrewd reply, "the snuff should be put into the sermons." Home years of Shop ago, we are told, the Isle :ppcy being an inconsiderable ar- ish, and the Income not very large, the Vicar came there but onco a month. The parishioners being much dsipleased at this, desired their clerk, who was that year church warden also, to remonstrate with him as to his negligence. The clerk told the Vicar the wishes of tbe parishioners, and the reply was: '' Well, well, tell them if they will give me ,10 a year more I will come to see them once a fortnight, and be sun; to let ine know their answer the next time I come." The next time he did come he accordingly asked and the clerk answered: "Sir, they say as how if you will excuse them 10 a year in their tithes they will dispense with your com ing at all. " Memliers of the cloth arc net always altove severely criticising one another's failings. It is related ot that most elo quent of English clergymen, Robert Hall, that he once disgusted by the ego tism and conceit of a preacher who, with a mixture of self-complacency and im pudence, challenged hot admiration of a sermon was provoked to say: "Yes, there was one very line passage of your discourse, sir." "I am rejoiced to hear you say so; wlucli was it?
