The Lawlessness of Monopoly. From a recent letter of the great con stitutional expounder and champion of popular rights. Judge Jeremiah Black, of Pennsylvania, we hare copied an ex tract : "The Constitution what is it f The self-imposed restraint of free democra- upon it own political action. the power of the oivnn ,t is limited and the equal rights of all Un people are protected. Shall it be obeyed? On ouch a question what argument can' you or I or anybody make? To patriot the duty of defending it bj too plain to be en forced by words, and the greedy monopolist or the scurvy politician drivels like u idiot when he tries to give reasons for violating it. Nevertheless it is constantly disregard ed by those who swear to observe it. The interests of a staas are stronger than the rights of the people. Stafford the Minister of Charles I., impudently declared that the little finger of the King was heavier than the loins of the lav,. Monopoly is kiag in tics country and Reads beheading more than the most perfidious of English monarch Its excessive and lawless taxation of laud arid labor is more intolerable tlr.n anything the civilized world has seen sinre the out break of the first French revolution.

Monopoly has methods of debauching party leaders, cheating voters, and deceiving the very elect, which perpetually defeat our hope of hoaMt government. If the power of tht corporations Increase! a little more, they can put their worst rascal into the highest office as easily as Caligula's horse was elected Consul by the people of Rome. PORT GIBSON. Its Past and Present Railroads, Schools and Factories A Semi-Centennial Church Celebration. Pout 4.iiRSOK, June IS, 1W:. DCAU Clarion : It was my inrKis4 when here at the celebration of the Odd Fellows' Anniversary in April, to have given your reader some notes of the same, and especially some general items in regard to the town. But other engagements prevented. Another occa sion of very special interest having called me here, I will endeavor to "kill two birds with one stone." Port Gibson, it is hardly necessary to say, i the county-seat of Claiborne county, and is one of the oldest towns in the Southwest, its settlement dating back to the early part of this century. It took its name from the first settler whose name was Gibson, and was for many years known as Gibson Port. It dthv . refined The re lic people tappy and Capt. Darden. Much has been said about the addres ses of Capt. Put Darden, Master of the State Grange. To satisfy the public de sire on this subject, we have copied in another column from the YYoodville lie- publican a report of his address at thai place, to which we will add the follow ing extract from a spirited report of his address at Tangipahoa church, in the Summit Times-Intelligencer, showing the growth and vitality of the Order of Patrons of Husbandry: Captain Darden began his address by referring to the unprecedented progress of the Order. Seven years ago, when he took the lecture field scarce a handful of men were present at his first few meetings in Wilkinson, Amite and Pike. He was compelled he said, to speak in private houses, and frequently to less than a doen people. Politicians and the monopolists frowned on tin was rapidiv set and intelligent class of people ftnement and intelligence still remain, and if great wealth doe.- not still abound appear to be prosperous, VerV hopeful. There are several hOUSQS hero that ilo a DBSiUMS ot one hundred thousand dollars a year, and who have the cash capital to buy and pay the very highest prices for cot ton ami other products. We have some extensive houses in Jackson, hut there are at leas? two here that eclipse any establishment the State Capital can boast of. Port Gibson has hithertobeen quite in accessible except by river, and a railroad eight miles trom urana uuii. mis road has been purchased by the Louis villc, Memphis and New Orleans Rail road. and the rails will betaken up in 8 few weeks. The road named, it is thought, will run its first locomotive into Port Gibson on the 4th of July, and the event is to be celebrated in an excursion to and grand jollification in the Hill City. But yon n iw reach Port Gibson from Jackson in less than live hours, via Her manville or Martin Stations, at which points first-class hacks meet all the t rains at the moderate cost of one dollar for the trip. POPULATION A N l EDUCATION. Port GlbflOll has a population of about 1500, which must ere long be very large ly increased by the advantages it affords in the way of schools and factories. The Port Gibson Female College, which was incorporated in 1854, and launder the auspices Ot the Mississippi t onter eneeof the M. E. Church, is an imposing and spacious establishment, and is well patronized. Rev. T. C. Bradford is the President. Ohamborlain-1 hint Academy has about one hundred boys in atten dance, under a line corps of teachers. Prof. Leckey, who has been the Princi pal for several years, is a superior-educator, has recently resigned with a view to assuming charge of the Huntsville Fe male Seminary, Alabama. The trustees conclude to invite itself to hi town. I don't think he would Ik- a very industri ous chairman of a local committee of arrangements. But whatever may In1 the Major's notions as to the utility of the Press Convention, the journalism of Mississippi does not afford the name of one who has a more exalted conception of the mission of the press, or who wields a readier or more prudent and conservative pen.

Now, where a few years ago he had been welcomed by some fifteen persons, he saw gathered around him the sturdy yeo- nianrv, the oun-Durnea sons oi ion, with their wives and daughters and their friends. W herever he goes large crowds have congregated and great interest is demonstrated. The press, once silent, (or a respectable minority of the leading journals of the State) he said, is striking telling blows in behalf of the farmer's cause. He was pleased to see it. In the place of twelve Grange organizations in the State of Mississippi, there are now 230 subordinate Granges and instead of f00 menilers, they now have upwards of 15,000 in the Suite College, and has a moderate endowment derived from the assets of Oakland. It is under the fostering care of the Pres bytery of Mississippi, and a committee of that body, consisting of Messrs. Stratton, W'oodbridge, and Shaw, are now in attendance on the closing exercises of the session. Tiik Chickasaw Messenger publishes the following extract of a letter which is sufficiently suggestive without a word of comment : A few days ago I occupied a seat in a nossenarer car. on the Mobile and Ohio Railroad, just behind two prominent railroad officials, when I heard the fol lowing conversation: "We must look after our interest in the election this fall, and see that the farmers do not get control of the Legislature. If they do they will have Railroad Supervision Lo Spite of us; and it will be best and cheapest for us to pay the expenses of our candidates in the different counties, than to run the risk, and have to pay out a good deal more to the Legislature.

One of the handsomest cotton factory buildings to be seen anywdiere, has been erected here within the past two ye..rs. It is 187 feet long bv feet wide, and two stories high. It will be supplied with machinery during the present year, and will give employment to a good many people. The Port Gibson Oil Works were erect ed in December, 1882, and have dene a booming business from the first. The budding and maehmcrv cost atiout 2i.- 000, but the capacity of the Works will have to be greatly increased in order to supply the demand for the superior oil and meal produced. The owners are. Messrs. K. ('. Englesing Ac Son, Herman Goenel. Robert Ernest, Chas, Hofer and Stephen Schilling Wilson's great Valley road, (hereafter to be known as the Louisville, Memphis and New Orleans R. R.,) passes directly in rear of the Oil Works. The people of Port Gibson very prop erly indulge in great expections in ref erence to this roaa. l he instance trom Memphis to New Orleans will be about 450 miles; from Memphis to Port tibaon, ibout 270 miles, substantial induce ments will be Offered lor the location ot the Company's shorn here, and it would no doubt be as good a point as could be elected. The officials of this road have certainly made a favorable tmprossiot on the' people along the route, and General Manager Jas. M. Edwards is especially spoken of for his business tloil should hnve taken place in but circumstance did not favor now . The commemoration exercises were begun yesterday ( Sunday ) morning. The spacious and handsome church, erected just prior to the war, at a cost of forty thousand dollars, was handsomely de corated. On the wall, back id' the pul pit, were the words. "Ye Shall Hallow the Fiftieth Year." A portrait of lb. Butler, painted during the first vears of his ministry, wa- suspended on the right of the pulpit, and a portrait of Rev. Dr. Price oa the left. Rev. Dr. J. It. strat ton, of Natchc, Rev. J. Woodbridge, of Wesson, and the pastor, Rev, 1 1. A. Planck, occupied the pulpit. The verj large audience room was nearly tilled there being no service at the other churches, and many persons being present from the Surrounding country. I lie best musical talent of the town composed tic- choir, and to say that this part of the service was fully equal to the occasion, is but moderate praise. Dr. Stratton preached the morning sermon, taking as his text the last clause of -d Chronicles o:14 "for the glory of the Lord has filled the house of (ioil." He spoke forty-live minutes. His theme could not have been more appropriate. Toward the close of his discourse, he made several ten der allusions to Dr. Butler, with whom he had been very intimately associated, and to whom be ministered in bis dying hour. l)r. Stratton has been pastor of the Natchez church forty years, and his congregation have intimated a purpose to make public recognition, in December next, of his life and tabors among them. In the afternoon, the children ot the church hud an exceedingly appropriate service, duriii'- which tu:v. Messrs. Woodbridge, Shaw and Planck, and your correspondent, made sh irt addresses. A bright voung miss, Nilhc Wood, recited a poem written for the occasion. Each class marched In with a banner, and during the exercises each recited a motto. Thftinging was excellent, closing with the '-Sweet Hv-and-Jiv. At night there was another large con- grcgation. to listen to the historical dis course bv the pastor. Rev. A. McCal- lum, the oldest member of Synod, being in his eighty-second year, offered a fer vent prayer, when Mr. Planck proceeded at once with the labor of love he had undertaken. His sketch must have been intensely interesting to the members of the church, and of toe entire community, for it dealt with persons and events with which all were more or less identified. But there were matters in bis discourse of general interest, some of which I will endeavor to recall. He repudiated that feeling which, to some extent prevailed that Presbyterians are deficient in the pioneer spirit that they wait until a way has been blazoned before they entered the wilderness, and after citing instances from Scottish, Welsh and French history, thought that a correct narrative of church work in the Territory of Mississippi would be creditable to' the zeal of Presbyterian ism. He claimed that the first church moir ment in the way of tending the gospel to this section was that of the Board of Missions of the Presbyterian church in New York, which, in 1798, commissioned Rev. Joseph Bullen to visit the Chicka saw Indians, and report as to the best way of establishing a mission station among them. In 1800, the Synod of North Carolina appointed three ministers to the American settlement in southwest Mississippi Rev. Wm. Montgomery, Rev. Jas, Hall and Lev. Jas. Bowman. They arrived in 1801 and organized the the first church in 1804. These three made the journey on horse back, by way of Nashville, and thence over the route known as the Natchez Trace. They braved the dangers that made this road famous. Thev were nearly starved on the journey. The last dust of meal had beeU eaten, when they caught a racoon. At two o'clock in the morning of December 4, 1880, they heard the was erected, and there, in 107, a church was regularly organized by Rev. Jos. Bullen and Rev. Jas. Sniylie. It was in the name of that church that Dr. But ler Itejjan his ministry. The Presbytery of Mississippi, (which had bee organ ized in IHlti) convened in Port liihson on the first Wednesday in April. Mo, and on the following Saturday Zebulon Butler was set apart to hi life-work. Up to that time, the eople had leen without the wholesome restraints of re ligious institutions. Port Cilisou was a "fat" place, but this youthful ambas sador of (Jod had (Mine to conquer, through the arm of His poWVf and the grace of His love. On one occasion, the Rev. Jas. Grifln, a Methodist minister, characterised the town in terms more strong than complimentary. He was threatened with tar and feathers if he attempted to preach again, but the brave soldier of the Cross kept hisappoihtmciit. Zebulon Butler was bom in Wilkes barre, IV, S-ptember 'J.'l, 1808, irrad Uated at Princeton, and in I8M WM recommended to some citiaens of Vieka burg who had made injuries as to a suitable young minister for that not very inviting tield. Responding to the call. In- labored in Yiekshiirg one year.

His culture, his elcirant attainments, his exceedingly handsome appearance hi- beautiful consecration, bis Unaffected zeal and hi social excellencies, at once made him an object of admiration and respect throughout the community. He came to Port (iibson in the fall of IS27. A church building was erected in 1839, The present building was completed in 1S.V.I, and the first service held in same was at the funeral of him who planned and brought it to completion. After a continuous pastorate of thirty-three years, he died December 33d, 1886, Mr. Planck also made appropriate mention of the Eldership, the Sabbath School and Ladies' llenevolents Sicietv. Rev. Root. Price. D.

Pitting mention was also made of ministers w ho had served the church temporarily between the reg ular pastorates. Attlie morning service, a very lilieral thanksgiving- ottering was collected by the deacons. The plastering of the church had fallen several months ngo, entailing considerable exjiensc in repair ing the damage, all of w hich has been handsomely met. A sociable to-night, to which the pub- lie generally is invited, oloses the com memoration services, The ladies have prepared sixty gallons ice cream, and other good things in proportion, and as it will all be dispensed, ''without money and without price," the attendance promises to be very good. A full show, and especially free icecream, w ill "draw" in Port Gibson as elsewhere.

The four missionaries have been holding prayer-meetings and presenting Mattering inducements to con verts. This evening seven women and three men who have prolWscd the faith were baptized in Duncan Creek. Several hundred people, about half being women gathered on the banks to witness the ceremony. The place was lit up by pine knots and torches.
