At a conference of the old-time citizeus of Jackson, it was deemed appropriate that . c , Kr tfimnirMt men to the next LesTisia tureas there will be urgent need for them. The great question of Railroad Supervision will arise and we must work not only honesty, but honesty and force combined if we expect to win. We might to remember that there are other things for our legislators to attend to besides drawing their pay and Uiswer ing to the roll call. The Anti-Monopoly Movement. The movement against the tyrannical use of corjHirate power which is com monly signified in this country by Hit term ''"monopoly" is gradually spreading in Isith parties', but especially in the Democratic party. One of the most se rious -ins of the Republican party is its support f monopolies, and one of the most hopeful elements in the Democrat ic struggle for supremacy is the extent to which the Democracy is honeycombed by anti-monopoly. Some of the evi dence of this fact have been so remarka ble as to be truly surprising. New Or leans Picavune. Presidential Probabilities. Senator Jones of Nevada. The two chief Democratic candidates are Tilden and ex-Senator McDonald. The former litis a host of powerful ad vocates, who an- pushing his canvass with earnestness and discretion, which; no doubt is made stronger by the efforts of Mr. Tilden, who is one of the most ,-hrewd men of the age. His candidacy will depend greatly, however, on his health. McDonald' would be a strong candidate were it not for the fact of his quarrel with Governor Hendricks, and this may be sufficient to throw him out of the race. As to General Hancock, I think he has little chance for a renomi-nation. At this season of the year you find Clothing Stocks pretty well broken up in sizes, and marry odds and ends that we are anxious to get off our hands.

The .Supreme Court of the United States has again decided in a case aris ing iu Illinois, that a State has the right to regulate the charges of railroad com panies within its jurisdiction, notwith gtttndinMht charter of m'uI compan:e, may mithorize them to fi.i wh thkrott. That is to say, the charter is subordinate to the inherent sovereignty of the State, which entitles it to uphold and regulate that which pertains to the public welfare. The principle has been enunciated by the Court on more occasions than one, and must he taken to he the settled law of the land. It is one so essential to the dignity, not to say the safety, of the State, that there is no probability that it will ever be seriously questioned. To say that the corporation created by the State, is or shall be superior to the inter ests and authority of the State, would be monstrous.

Stella, who is 18 years old, formerly lived with her parent.- at (bind Ground. She is well educated. Smith is over HO years of age. After their marriage the couple were obliged to leave Greanport, tne young men ot the village having made it too warm for them to remain. Nothing daunted, they made their way to Brooklyn and took tin their abode at Crow bill, near the FlBtbusfa asylum. They were driven from their retreat at Crow hill by the colored residents, who would not tolerate the bride among them. Since then the two have lived in a small hut in the outskirts of Jamaica. Last night a party of fifteen men, among whom were three negroes, headed by a drum and life, and armed with a fence rail and a pot of tar and feathers, visited White's abode after midnight with the intention of assaulting him. When they reached the hut they found it deserted. White and his degraded companion had gained knowledge of what was about to I take place and had fled.
