But that ties whose names have been freely men tioued in connection with the murder, and we may even have other events as fresh reminders of the awful crime, but these will only be as the flickering of the candle. So soon are we forgot when we are dead. The man was shot, and yet we have never heard of the pistol and beyond the members of his family and the negroes with whom he disputed. there has not been any attempt to trace his murder. With these all efforts to prove a case have ciosea. Are we to cive it un so? Are we to confess that a aside, and having regard only for the! woman may disappear without awaken or fears of the a man may ing the consciousness community, and that murdered without possibility of arrest ing liis murderer? If so, we may as well admit our incapacity for local self- government, dismiss the police, ad. jouni our courts, and resolve ourselves into the sovereign elements of which dollar. Kentucky our city is composed, and each become cent, and has no bonds I peace-officer On his own account. Are we safe in our houses? other counties concerned, are they like ly to acquiesce? Will the States con sent? We think not To begin with the counties of Kentucky and Missis sippi invited to form part of " Chicka saw" or "Jackson," they are now parts of States with in one case a company lively trifling public debt, and the other without does not owe a out, and Mississippi has only a million and a half of scrip out, beyond that she has no debt and does not owe a dollar. In Tennessee we have a public debt of over twenty-two millions, one-third of which would have to be shouldered by the western counties going into the new State. Would the Kentucky and Mis sissippi counties help to "tote" this, or pay it? We doubt it But again: The friends of the movement in Mississip pi assign as a reason for their proposed "secession" that they want to escape from negro control. Will they go before a negro legislature,as they will have to in all likelihood, and, alleging that as a rea son, be permitted to leave? It is not in human nature to expect it We know our "colored friends" are yet ignorant in many things, but they are not so much so as to coolly pocket an insult and generously help their insulteis. But, evenshould the negroes consent to the movement, and stultify themselves in so doing, is it likely the whites, who are by this threatened with the complete ruin of all their vested rights and property, will consent to desertion to be so disastrous to them! We don't believe it It is not in the nature of human beings to do so. The northern counties of Mississippi may be ever so anxious for the change, but the southern will "ne'er consent" As for Kentucky, she wants a Mississippi front and is jealous of her territory near speeches in the drowsy, nodding senate, the moutn or the Cumberland and the full of invectives against southern peo Tennessee, and will never give it up. pie, and especially denunciatory of his aiiu our own counties, iney are not own constituents; but nobody gives his "sure and certain." We have reason assertions in reference to these matters to ueiieve mat if given to the people to The Republican State convention of Jackson, Mississippi, sits the twentv-seventh proximo. There is no need for its convocation, Ames has packed it. The colored people adhere as one man to the son-in-law of the immortal Ben. Butler. Ames, beyond his connection with But' ler, has no influence; with it, he is om nipotent among the colored people. At Aberdeen, Saturday, when Ames am' the present governor (Powers) met, a great black throng greeted the pair; but Ames was supreme master of the multi tude, and poor Powers friendless and helpless. Ames said he could not talk; that his attention had been so completely absorbed by great national questions that he could not at once de scend to petty local and State questions, That was. all. He asked the colored o support him. It howled, and Ames was happy and poor dreadfully crestfallen. He is no more capable than Ames of speech-making, but his nice little cranium, unlike the Websterian skull of the great states- Ames, wa3 not bursting with "national" or any other ideas. Be tween Ames and Powers the people do not seem just yet to have made a choice. Ames has read villainous be voted on, the question of "new State,' would be overwhelmingly defeated. We have paid and are paying dearly for the multiplied systems of government, national, State, county andnsity, that, instead of in creasing the people, would decrease them. A new State would bring with it new debts, large outlays, and in creased offices and office-holders with- put any corresponding benefits, and we more attention than they deserve, and if the people of Mississippi do not want anybody in the senate with Alcorn.they should keep Ames there. The seat is vacant. When the little military pop injay ejects his spleen before the senate, it signifies nothing more than if he sat in his native village, in Maine, and told the same story before a rum-hole. He is known to represent nothing, and speaks for no one save Ames.
