SATURDAY MORNINsV : : MOV. 27, 1869 The question of appointing the new United States Circuit Judges is i cninr to attract a good deal of at tention, now that the time is near.it hand vt Iif-r. the JYesident will have to !.!. e the appointments. The New York Tribvne says HoraiH M.iY nard, of this State, has been promi nently mentioned in connection with t'u.' Judgeship for the sixth circuit, ('imposed of the States of Michigan, Ihio, Kentucky and Tennessee. The I'iunati Enquirer mentions that three candidates from Ohio are prom inently spoken of, viz: Judge Bei. !..imi Storer, Philip Swing, of I -.iiont county, and Judjre Cox, of the Common Pleas Court of Hamilton i-..umy. The telegraph has also re portei Ben Wade an expectant. Th: whole number of representa tiv. U'ing tjed by law at Ma, on the supposition that tiie population of the Cniti-J sratos should reach 40,000,000 hy the arasus of 170, the ratio of rep resentation will lie about one repre sentative t i;i,iii inhabitants. By the eii.-u- el lsi there was a repre sentative to lLT.tmu inhabitants. If then- -hould lie no increase in the numlx-r of representatives, the old StaH" mu.-t lose by the change of ap Mjrtiinment, and that continually as the ratio in.'rease. On the other hand, if the ratio should remain the saute, and the number of representa n v.- i.e iiiemuaid accordingly, the time i near when the House of Rep rten tatives will be too unwieldy for legislation. We understand that the committee appointed to solicit subscriptions of k to the Memphis and Arkansas River Packet Company have gone vigorously to work, and have already urtd -utiscriptions to the amount of ten to fifteen thousand dollars. Thi enterprise is undoubtedly of very conoid. -ruble importance to the city. We are informed that large quanti ties of c. itton are received here through the agency of the boats of this line. which at other times, and when ir- ! regular I -oats are in that trade,! - to New Orleans and else-J hen-. .Largo additional amounts of other uroduce. and also of rs arrive at our landing. i. W$ in. n hant, railroad and hotel is in:-r. -ted in the line, receiving through it purchasers, passengers and guest-. There are eleven boats be-longiu- to the company, five of which are entirely new. We are informed that b.-tw.-en S .t. 1, island July 1, lHt:, when low water set in, the stock paid a dividend of thirty per cent., m k mam fully worth ar.

Appeal: Not being a " watch man on the tower" of the present po litical situation, I am unable to say, " what ol the night." The recent registration had last week has had the tendency to make Conservatives far more hopeful in fact, confident. The effort of the Radicals, by leaving out several of the most prominent pre cinct all along the railroads, to give a heavy preponderance to the negro vote, has not had the happy result al together the plotters so fondly antici pated. The nearest registering poll to Sen atobia was Whitsell's, an out-of-the-way place, fully ten miles distant. Coldwater, Como, Sardis and other places not county sites were treated in the same way. This dodge was evidently intended to prevent a many whites from registering as possible, as it is not a convenient thing to spend a whole day from business, much less to incur the expense and trouble of going so far for the mere purpose of procur- . i L mg a certincate. it was supposeu tne negroes, being thoroughly organized through tlH'ir " Vm r role nt Society, could be made to go. They, however, did not all go, and hence the negro vote fell far short of the increase the managers of this nice little block game expected. They have now in DeSoto county only 44 major ity on the registration lists, and as fully five hundred hava floated away from here since the first regis tration the Conservatives feel confi dent of their complete ability to carry this county by a handsome majority. As "straws show which way the wind blows," so do the elongated visages of the Radical candidates portend com ing disaster. "Gen." Gill Carring ton's round chubby red face has added about two inches to its vertical diiuen- 1 sions, and "Loi. canard s always : loug enough has assumed a whiter hue, giving it the appearance of an in verted chalk pyramid. Cncle Jeptha has sent to iraves for his sermon re futing the Aridistic doctrines which the aforesaid candidate for Legislative honors so warmly espoused when that little infidel !xok, "so-called," made its first apearance before an astonished and wundcring world. Jeptha hopes to be reconstructed on that subject in time to get the negro vote, as that class of voters have un fortunately found out that he once, twice, yea, many timeu, was heard to -ay that a negro had about as much chance of heaven as a mule. The mule not being a popular object of comparison with that respectable part ot Ins constituency, the old gentleman is trying hard to go back oil his fa vorite authors; but somehow or other hi competitors still stick to their heartless repetitions of his former "soulless" assertions.

Wise- man, w pitcking Mi !ittl (i lunula ted -uriiet-lajr, preparatory to a similar return to the "busum'' of his family in the "MtUl." The voting precincts are worse ar ranged, if anything, than the register ing precincts were. Here is the order: On the 1st day (Tuesday) iSenatobia votes at Arcabutla, fifteen miles off; 1 Cold Water at independence, ten i miles off; lieynolds at Cockrum; , Pleasant Hill at Olive Branch; Iike- ! vilieat Horn Lake; DeJSoto Front at Hon Lake; Cub Lake at Hernando.

"Let us have peace!" A very reliable and intelligent citi zen of this place, just returned from .Sunflower couuty, reports that a very MfiMM affair occurred in that county last Monday. The negroes there, in fluenced by the diabolical teachings of the fiendish ( 'omliash, a shrewd and unprincipled negro, aided and abetted by his no l-w st-oundrelly white al-i Ikn, formed the bold design of driv nit; all the whites from the country. They formed organizations, number ing sonie six hundred, all armed and equipped with Uiuskets aud cartridge boxes, and st;irteJ forth "on their mis sion of pillage, plunder and murder. The whites hearing of their intended raid, assembled as soon as possible near the-Talia hatch ie river, between lioyd's store and McXutt. the countv site of Sunflower. Between two and three hundred nearly the entire white population of the county were thus brought together in tiuie'to meet the black array before it had proceed ed more than a few miles on its march. The opposing forces met in j the road, and the negroes halted and tired, wounding severely six of I the most advanced of the whites. The fire was imme diately returned, which, my inform ant states, resulted in killing twenty three negroes and wounding between fifty and sixty. This unexpected r. pulse caused a general stampede ofj Com bash's army, his doughiv war riors throwing down their arms and 1 running through the woods in every j direction. Many were picked up by the whites and were found to be Minie rifles made at Springfield as late as UML Some were Minio rifles changed kt the Needle gun. How did thev procure these arms-.' Such weapons. I supposed, could onlv be found in the ' Imiidw of I'nilfil ."stati-s soldiers.

Washington, Novemler 21. flo many complaiLts have been made regarding the delay in the settlement ot claims against the Government, occasioned by the red tape regulations of the departments, that a bill will be presented at the coming session of Cougress, prescribing rules intended to apply to all of the Auditing Bu reaus, including the tuartermasb r and Commissary Departments. The bill will also provide that the same publicity shall be given to the adjud ication of claims that is now given to i aes in court. INDIAN AFFAIRS IN MONTANA. Delegate Conranaugh, from Monta na, iiad a long interview with the 1 'resident yesterday on the Indian question in his Territory, and asked that more troops may be sent there to protect the settlers from depredations. The President expressed his willing ness to afford every protection within his control, but did not seem to favor a suggestion of the Grand Jury of Montana that Indians should be made as amenable to the civil law as the whites, and tried by the courts in the same way. The latter policy, how ever is favored by the Secretary of the Interior and Commissioner of Indian allairs. SENTENCE OF COMM ANKER 3EELY. The revised sentence in the case of Lieutenant-Commander Seely, of the navy, tried for cruelty to his men on the steamer Pawnee, is. that he be s i-pended from command, furlough or pay, with loss of all rank, for the i period of four years. A SINGULAR CA8E Has arisen under the law ol the last Congressfetrikingthe word white from j all laws relating to the District of Col i umbia. Rev. J. Stella Martin, the pastor of a colored Presbyterian soci ety in Washington, obtained not long ago an order for the admission of his daughter to the new Franklin School. j The daugter is a handsome blonde, j the father being a light mulatto, and I ...... 1 I. .. : . i -. ... . the mother being so white that no trace of negro blood is noticed in her face. The daughter took the position assigned her in the classes, and for some time it was not discovered that tht belonged to the negro race. Upon the tacts coming to the atten tion of the school teacher, the girl was refused admission to the classes, ad although she attended regularly ': instruction was denied her. The fa ther appealed to the Mayor, and the 1 latter has called upon the Superinten dent of Schools to see that the girl is protected and treated like other schol ars, or that a new teacher be found. Mr. Martin inserted that there were 1 three otherchildren of the colored race in daily attendance at the school, but the teacher, after diligent search, has tailed to discover them. MEXICAN CLAIMS. The Joint Commission to adjust the claims of citizens of the United States and Mexico, made against each other, i i- - -1 . . . . . i and which is created by a duly ratified , net ween me i wo countries, will i meet in this city in a few davs. it preliminary organization having been effected some time since. Already a large amount of claims have been filed by American claimants against Mexico, whiih will exceed some tif- teen millions of dollars. It is not probable that the Commission will make awards covering one-half of that sum. Wm. EL Wadsworth, of Kentucky, is Commissioner of the United States. PETITION FROM TOBACCONISTS. Several prominent tobacco manu facturers have petitioned Commis sioner Delano to include in his annual report a recommendation of the aboli tion of the export stamp duties on , tobacco. They claim that under ex- , istiug regulations, the amount w hich they are (equina to pay to the cus tomhouse officials, to our Consuls abroad, is so large that they can not compete with manufacturers in other countries. THE CENSUS (OMMI'lTEE held another session at the Capitol to- uay, and wonted away on the details of the new bill.

Combash and his Followers wood, Miss. near Green- , . , . , . ...... On Wednesday last, savs the icks- burs Dnilu lerntl. ComliiLsh iimhu. bly the most villainous neirro living one for whom the gallows, under civil law, yet yen i ns used most incendiary and inflammatory language at Green wood, on the Yazoo river, advising the negroes to go armed, and to kill the whites perhaps better, to stop the breed by killing women and chil dren lirst. !So horrible was the advice he gave that he was at once arrested, j but succeeded during the night in making a hole through the floor where ! he wras confined, and escaped. Ho I went to Kiedsoe's place on the Talla hatchie, twunty-tive miles above ireenwood by water, but only six or seven hy laud. Here a I it nre force of negroes formed into line, aided by another larger party at the McLean place opposite. The negroes crossed over and attacked the whites, firing Mime twenty shots before the whites I fired one. Then the white men an--wered, killing, as it is reported, some ' ten or fifteen. A I'nited States officer was on the ground soon after with a j small squad, it was understood that assurances were given that CbmDMh was to leave the county. Certainly as dangerous and develis'h a creature as he is should no longer Ik- at large. The penitentiary should restrain his brutal instincts. At last accounts all was quiet. We also learn that on Wednesduv last -Mr. Jo. Huke, a citizen of Yazoo county, was killed at Dover, near Sa tartia. Five or six shots were fired at him by negroes, killing him instantly. How long is all true Republican pa tience to be abused by these modern radical Catalines? The Radicals of Mississippi, assum ing the garb of saints to serve the devil in to Ix'tter advantage, have suddenly become liond-payers instead of repudiators.
