The counties of Tennessee, and Arkansas which the road would mse through would give liberal subscriptions, and it is not doubted the Allen line of steamers and their friends would give it a liberal sup port. Nor is there any doubt that the Louisville and Nashville railroad com pany, and the city of Louisville, would subscribe liberally to the Arkansas end of the line, as it would, with proper business arrangements, give to that road and Louisville a very large trade, destroyed by the building of the Cairo and Fulton railroad.

Alexander II of Husaia pub lished aukase last winter, recalling to domestic life his strong-minded nussian ilnutrhters. who were nursuincr medical There studies in Zurich, the dismayed and in- a teuueuiy m iiignant uaugntere, mosioi inern.ooeyeu, Ames, llcorn and Powers What They arc Doing The Value of Ten nessee's Example. they had actually agreed to purchase the Memphis and Little Rock railroad, and gave it out as a part of their policy to complete that line from Devalls Staff to Sbreveport and Jefferson, there by making a base line, under one man agement, from Norfolk, Virginia, to rib rev apart and Jefferson, connecting at those potato with the Texas and Pacif ic to SaIiego,aud with thelnternatiou- al to ICaaatlan and the city of Mexico. THE PEOPLE AXD TIIE POLITICIAN'S On Friday morning last we published a lengthy telegram from Madrid giving the particulars of the massacre, by the populace, of the mayor of Alcoy and and I such of the militia, military and citi zens as recognized his authority and would combat the assumptions of the mob. The horrible picture was perfect, even to detail and minutre. No item was omitted calculated to vivify the ter rible deeds enacted. One could almost seethe human fiends at their bloody work and mark the progress of the sick euing butchery. Terrible and awful as it was, it is impossible for the American mind to contemplate such brutal work With this grand scheme in the hands of and account for it in any seeming provo- tfae mHroad king of modern times (Tom Scott) we were daisied, and gave it our hearty support But things have now glided along for ayear,and the poor Little Book railroad has been dropped by the king, and left as a poverty-stricken or pbaa, to drag along a miserable exis tence on its local resources, and now in the great financier's report on the Texas Pacific he allttdee to his connections east via Vleksburg, and northeast through or via Cairo, but does not even so much as mention the Memphis route, notwith standing he owns five hundred and fifty -twaiaflee of finished road, including the Mewphfci and Charleston, running northeast from Memphis. The time that hac elapsed, and nothing done to carry out the plan proposed at the time the lease was made, and no allusion made even to the route in President Scott's report, has naturally led to many speeehtttooe on the subject, and in a varr TKHfiteu article from a corespondent at Huntsville, Alabama, ieeatlr published in the New York World, he charges that the Security company did not lease the Memphis and Cbarleiton raUroad in good faith, or for the purposes avowed at the time, but really to run it down and destroy it as a great eoeipetinc line to others that the oonpaay was interested in, both north ad south of it, and claims that enough has already beeu done, or failed to be done, to forfeit the lease, aud intimates that steps looking to that end are now, oreoon will be. taken by the old stock holders. This and kindred articles on tag auhjoot have caused quite a general dtoeoaekw of this question, aud have called out strong expressions fromstrou; men, and strong combinations have Iieeti effected. These embrace, as we have already intimated, more than one capitalist who propose to build a grand trunk from Norfolk via Bristol to MeiU phis, via either Stevenson, Huntsville, or Nashville, and thence to Shreveport and Jefferson, Texas, over a part of the Memphis and Little Bock railroad, con necaW at these points with the two great PacMe routes starting from eastern Tens. IT Mr. Scott and his coinpany iki not cany out their original purpose, awl give us there connections, then we are ready to Join others to do it. If Mr. Seott thinks he can keep the Memphis and Charleston railroad, and ran it down, and use it to deprive Memphis of the benefits of tbis line, we think he will find himself mistaken. If, how- ever, him lease of that road is a legal contract, allowing him to do as he ploatec with it, it cannot interfere with the general purpose of the combination who have determined to make tbis fight. The line from Norfolk to Bristol is Intact, and its owners are always ready to co-operate with any plan or men for the promotion of the good of this eonutry, and the little man at the headof that institution is like tempered steal light, but strong, elastic, hard and enduring, and sever abandoning a pol icy examined, approved and adopted He has started out on a grand trunk line to the Pacific on the shortest and beat line, and ha intends to have it in spite of all MtnosHloti. From Norfolk to Bristol the road is completed 410 miles; -Bristol to Stevenson (most prac- cation. Denunciation of the fiends rises to our lips, and desire for swift an J severe retribution is our first im pulse. We do not care to trouble our selves for a reason .why, nor to go back beyond the hour and seek for the causes that induce so fiendish a dis play of passion. It was so with us in the days of the Paris communists, who one and all were denounced by united Christendom. Wc then remembered the bloody days of the guillotine and the re morseless directory, and shuddering. joiued our protests to those which went up from the favored classes, the quiet, conservative professionals as well as the pampered bureaucrats aud aristo crats. We did! not take council of history to find that the excess- of these poor people of Europe are the offspring of blind passions ex cited by the remembrance of what they are and what their forefathers for cen turies were made byiaw. They ask for popular government, for public assem blies in whiah they mayllnd refuge from the tyranny and exactions of selfish pr.nees; but, too often, they find in these but the supple tools of their "lords aud masters," and, as in the present German parliament, realize that all their dreams of reform have gone glimmer ing. They had learned and long since understood the force of the old adage "put not your trust in princes," but have got to learn this other one, "put not your trust in parliaments or as semblies," for they -are seldom com posed of patriots who have a heart Inter est in the people, but nearly always of selfish politicians with whom principle is but opportunity, as we found in this country before, during, and especially since the war. Both President Davis, in the Confederacy, aud President Lin coln, in the Union, had to fight the politicians at every step in the great contest, and President Johnson afterward in the blundering work of re construction. All students of history will concede that the English common wealth was sacrificed in the interest of the lecherous courtiers and assumed "better" people who wanted place and power. The reigns of Charles the Sec ond and James the Second are proofs of the fact that the restoration of the mon archy was not hailed with favor by the people. Napoleon the First and Napo leon the Second both betrayed the French people, and the confidence re posed in them, to mount to power. Both might, had they been actuated by a love ot- the people, have secured them in the rights they fought for in the streets and aUthe barricades. But no; they were like those whose thrones they usurped, enemies of the people. So in the later revolutions in France and tepatn. e find in both countries swarms of robustious patriots only in tent on the accomplishment of their own purposes, full of sound and fury, always warmly protesting the people's rights, all the time that they, by their acts, bring disgrace on republicanism and lead their crazed and fanatical followers to excesses like those of Paris and Aleoy. Thiers only, of all the leaders called into service by therev- olutionists of France, has proven him self the friend of the people, who had in From the Meridian Mercury. If the Democrats, decline running a State ticket, it is quite certain that you (the Okolona Neiis) and your Ames .will be bound up Salt river next fall. From the Calhoun Times. The people, aside from a few old sore heads, don't care a straw what you call the party, so it has a platform of princi ples upon which honest men can stand. From the Can to u Citizen. We repeat, with the death of Democ racy must die the principles of our re publicanism, and tnose wno are so eager for its demise must be classed with the enemies of our race and country. From the Prentiss Recorder.) There is no hone for Mississinm as long as a portion of her people hold the memories or party paramount to ner vital interests, and continue to gratify their prejudices at the expense of duty and patriotism. From the Handsboro Democrat. There is some talk about Powers being the compromise condidate for the Con servatiues, should Ames beat him for the nomination for governor. We trust there is no foundation for such a rumor. We will not take stock in any such concern, if our friends do go into it From the Chickasaw Messenger. Whatever may be done in other coun ties in Mississippi, there is no division among us in Chickasaw, for every, man, be he old-line Whig, Conservative or Democrat, who opposes Badical mis rule, is a member of what we agree to denominate "the Democratic party." From the Montlcello Advocate. We now ask the people of Lawrence, are you ready to pay thirty millions of dollars to Ben. Butler to abuse, rob aud oppress you? If not, you had better look about you and see if you cannot get some firm man, opposed to the-e abusive and oppressive measures, to represent you in the next legislature. From the Senatobia Signet. Political affairs in Mississippi just now are in a transition state. The old dis membered elements of parties are float ing about in atomic confusion, and will so continue for the time, until some more authoritative power than a mere softening, but since the unification not from a zeal of filial obedience, but movement in Louisiana we fear that because the Russian consul in Zurich, unification and a'niflcation are gaining enforcinc his emperor's command, strength. Some want just a little nigger obliced them to leave. Some went to In theirs, and some want either them- paris, and are there finishing their selves or a friend put forward, or they course of study: others were scattered, will not go for any other.

Can all be accommodated? but precious leaven,4urned their faces From the Enterprise Courier.) General Lowry has cultivated intel lect, a perfect appreciation of the exi gencies of the times, an irreproachable public record, an intimate acquaint ance with the history and political con dition of the State, and great decision of character elements pre-eminently qualifying him for so important a trust. Firm in his convictions of right, yet conservative in his views and courteous in his intercourse, he commands the confidence of his party and the respect of the opposition. If the Democratic party nominate him for their standard- bearer, we know of no one who will prosecute the canvass more vigorously, or so effectually harmonize the party ana develop its ruu ana great strength. Let General Lowiy be our next can didate ror governor. From the Yazoo Democrat. As to the difference between the Ames wing and the "sham Republicans," there is, perhaps the same difference as existed between Walker and Wells of Virginia, andSenter and Stokes of Ten nessee. In both of those States the Democratic masses appreciating their weakness and embarrassments, unitedly and to a man, supported the more libe ral of the two, and with what result the country is familiar to-day. Look at those two States to-day. Both have gradually passed into the hands of in telligent, bona fide, tax-paying citizens. There is peace, prosperity and good-wiH throughout their domains; taxation has been reduced, and each has entered upon an inviting and cheerful future. In this State the white element is a mi nority, and that minority is divided into factions that forbid even a hope that they can accomplish a victory over a stronger and more united opposi tion. From the Vleksburg Herald. The Yazoo Democrat and Tallahatchie Sews are the only papers we have yet seen favoring a no-policy policy during the coming campaign. They would have" the people remain passive, and favor some sort of a go-Detween scheme that must certainly place Ames or Powers In power again. The convention will put the stamp of condemnation upon such a toward America. They have just ar rived, and naturally the first light that brings them out of the darkness of their recent discrrace comes throuch a searching ray of the sun, in the shape of a live reporter. Very interesting women they are, and would be an honor to any country, notwithstanding the czar thoueht best to take them out of school and bade them come home as bad or brainless children. The story as told by the women students themselves, is in brief the following: About one hundred and fifty Russian women were at Zurich studvine matnematics and medicine, when, last November, their emperor published a ukase that women in the medical profession would receive no recognition above the rank of mid wife. Later, a few months, Alexander II commanded the women studying at Zurich to come home, assigning no reason. The students had suspicions of causes, in some degree related, and of the governmental preliminary proceed ings. They believe that for about six months previous to the midwife edict of last November, tnere uad been a secret correspondence between the Russian minister of public instruction and the Zurich professors; that the professors, notwithstanding their dislike to women students in general, and to Russians in particular, were constrained to answer him that some of these Russian women would be the glory and pride of their country if allowed to finish their studies; that they were, as students, very supe rior; that they overcame with unex pected facility the greatest difficulties in the medical scientific course, but all of no avail. The degrading edict of No vember was promulgated, and soon fol lowed by recall to Russia: an arbitrary power over individuals, which in this country is, if not incredible, at least in comprehensible. These women students, who are also accomplished ladies, avow that the one hundred and fifty women who were suddeuly prohibited from the scholastic advantages of Zurich, were totally proper, decorous, in no manner unreasonable or objectionable by the practice of eccentric theories; that there nau oeen iour students, rour only, and two years ago, who did avow and reck lessly practice all the novel and extreme notions of the Nihilists; that two of the INSURANCE.

There are many anti-Radicals who could not be induced under any circum stances to support such a retrogressie and impracticable movement as a Bourbon Democratic ticket, and who. if compelled to choose between that and the Republican ticket, would support the latter. We do not hesitate to say that we, for one, would, in such an event, either remain neutral or support the Re publican ticket. From the Oxford Falcon. The great mass of Conservatives con sider that there is no difference between Ames and Powers, and are not willing to support either. With a ticket of true men and a united effort, there is some hope of success and a certainty that we can secure flMjanch of the legislature. With no Cffitervative State ticket, we shall lose all o? the doubtful counties and a creat many that have heretofore beeu strongly Conservative. From the Natchez Democrat. To us it appears quite certain that, in the south, at least, the Democratic party has no longer a substantial existence. The talk of abandoning it is really not only the talk of the masses, but it is what the masses have practically and wisely done already, and it is the poli ticians and not the masses who insist upon getting up an annual series of Democratic funerals over a political party divisions, or to wander off after sonic ignus Jatuus of a new departure, a go-between, or third party wilt-'o-the-wisp, that would take us to the grave of Louis DenU, We niuSt move up firm and united, taking along all liberal ele ments, forming no coalition and enter ing into no combinations, and we may then be able to nive the people a govern ment 01 nonest ami upright oiiiciais, them being a proprietor of vast estates; and the other two were forced away by law on account of their debts that many of these one hundred and fifty would have been graduated this spring.

After forming the acquaintance of a great many gentlemen from different parts of the Estate, and examining the principal novel and interesting scenes about the capital, we called on Senator Ames.

In the white counties we hear of no immigration, and we cannot see in what wav the white vote is to increase over former craft that sails under Radical colors, and we are tnanKiui mat tni3 is so.
