Editor: Throughout the whele of East Mississippi the crop of cotton is light,, and more than half has been shipped. Corn is abundant and is selling in many places for forty cents per bushel. At West Point there is a fine grist mill, where a superior quality of meal is made. The grain, by means of seives and fans, is thoroughly cleaned of bits of cob, dirt and silks, before it enters the mill. Now, sir, although corn, wheat, pork aftad chickens have been raised throughout this whole country,, yet the hotels and boarding houses charge the traveler from seventy-five cents to one dollar for each meal, and the aitmt for bed. One place on the railroad I sat down to the break fast table to fried iquirrel (they eppeex to know no ether way of preparing meat), well sprinkled with hair and shot, biscuit green with salaratus and like putty in consistency, and a slop sweetened with molasses called coffee. For this I was charged the moderate sum of six bits, and afterwards I was asked why I did not return to the same house for dinner. There is a substratum of limestone rook, dipping to the south, and cropping out in the higher regions, which underlies the whole of this region. By artesian borings, as at Columbus and Aberdeen, through this stratum of limestone, an abundant supply of hard water is ob tained. During the summer the inhabit ants have suffered from aa unusual amount of intermittent ana remittent forms of malarial fever; sporadic cases of an infrequent fever, called by the doc tors swamp fever, attended by one par oxysm of fever, followed by prostratioo, yellowness of the skin, paucity of urine, hemorrhages from the mucous mem branes, and death. ... .... Ask a gentleman in Mississippi wnat is the political feeling," and he will reply promptly, 'r0h, we care but little about politics. are satisfied with the liminiatration of Gen. Oillem." With tha excention of an occasional case of lawlessness s the hanging of Riley, at Okolons, and the shooting of a negro, at Tupelo all is quiet. , That there is more demoralization and drunkenness than before the war all, who are candid, must admit. From Uniontown, Ala., to Tuscaloosa, a distance of sixty miles, one has to travel by the old-fashioned stage coach. Who could think that in the nineteenth century men would have the patience to put up with such an antiquated mode of locomotion T The coach, with one other passenger beside the writer, a gentlemaa of color, left Newbura at 10 a.m , and reached Tuscaloosa the next morning at one, after a liberal application of the whip and much hallooing at the poor, harmless mules. Tuscaloosa, with her broad and shaded streets, which cross each other at right-angles, is beautifully located on the south side of the Warrior, just below the falls. This belle city had numerous foundries and factories before the war : but a part of Wilson's raiders, oador Crocker, applied the torch, as usual, to them, and they now are so many mournful monuments, which mark the pathway of this relentless destroyer The buildings of the State University were also destroyed by these incendiaries, but, Ptcenix like, from the ashes has arisen a beautiful structure, which, when completed, will rival in physical propor tions its colossal neighbor, the Lunatic asylnm. The design is for a rectangular building, measuring four hundred feet on the exterior lines, and two huodred and fifty on the interior, inclosing aa open court. The bight for the most part is three stories, and the center of the front and rear lines,' four. It is to be supplied by hot and cold water by means of pipes, and heated throughout by steam and ventilaled by means of Meig s revolving fan. Arches are sprang over all the openings to receive superincum bent weight, and wide galleries extend all around the interior from the floor, protected by wrought iron railing and supported by cast irm columns. Only the resr line ef the boiidiag is com pleted, and is now ready fer the reeep imn. and can accommodate eomfortab'.y ... hundred and e.ghtv-eisht young men with a snCcient corpeot ptofeisora. C MEMPHIS. TENNESSEE, FRIDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 18. 18C8. COLL, 2 o Fl I waa kindly nhowo through tha edifice by Col. Mnrfae, tke architect, builder and former commandant of cadets. If the olaia nnd dormitority discipline recom mended by tbii accomplished gentleman and experienced teaeber be carried ont in the future manaesment of thia insti tution, it will be an ornament to the Rial, as well as bleasine to the younit men who may be It fortunate ai to call I her Alma Mater. Eight mile from town, on the Hunts Tills road, near Hurricane creek, aome enterprising men have erected a colton factory called Kennedale. They em ploy one hundred end sixty hands in carding, spinning, wearing shirting, elo. Thia factory is conveniently located near coal-beds and water, in healthy local ity, and the future before this company is bright, and they expect to realite a handsome profit upon their inrestment. I bare a specimen of clorti from this fac tory, which I will show if I should be so fortunate as to get back to the Bluff City.

In my next I propose to give you an inkling of tha region of country around Elyton, in the counties of Jeffer son and Shelby. Respectfully, Skip. Universal Suffrage. Washington Correspondence Cin. Enquirer. The suffrage and naturalisation issues and the finance propositiona stalk out in advance of all other) propositions, and demonstrate themselves as the predomi nant topics of the ensuing seasion. The double aim on the voting matter seems to be the bappy thought of making it possible for every negro to vote, and next to miraculous for a foreigner to get a chance to become a citizen. How badly the Radical party were shaken np, and how they concede a preponderance of all the actual legal voters to the Democracy, are evident from the intention to coerce negro suffrage by amendment on all the States, and so revise naturalization laws as to make it impossible for men indis posed to difficulty to tako out their papers The last session of the Fortieth Congress is to be solely engineered in the interest of securing the future of tbe Radical party; any such thing as legislation is not to be considered, apart from its spe cific political value to the party in power. For the first time in history are laws to be made solely in behalf of the majority who have gerremandered themselves into Congress. Any onpartisan effort in be half of our credit, our commerce, onr in dustry, our internal improvements, look iog toward tbe settlement of our foreign relations, or the development of our re source., may not be expected. It is to be a political session, and the open Leg islature will only put into statute the decrees of the secret caucus. But this suffrage business is not to be consummated without serious opposition in the ranks of the Radicals themselves. So influential a man as John Sherman, of Ohio, is committed to the intention of opposing the proposed amendment, be cause he declares that it would lose to the party Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Missouri to the end of time. He says that the tradition of ihe Government is to leave suffrage to tbe States, except such as bave put themselves under the ban of rebelliou. Mr. Howard, of Mich igan, is to-day, despite his former violence, to fall in with the new pro gramme, for the wholesome reason that his State stamped to the death the idea of negro suffrage last spring. Likewise Cattail, of New Jersey, though hv nature of the most pronounced Radi cal bent, has heard voices from Bergen to Cape May, to the same effect as How ard. Here are three prominent and not nninflueotial Radicals who bang fire, to say the least, and it is certain that if the Democracy in the Senate candidly and strongly meet the issue in a statesman like and not iu a partisan spirit, they can defeat the amendment. In the House it will probably prevail, be cause the identical two-thirds, hardly enough to impeach Andrew John aon, are still available for any purpose. Returning to the Senate, it is quite cer tain that Fowler, of Tennetse, Hender son, of Missouri, Ross, of Kansas, and very probably Fesenden, of Maine, will decline to precipitate the parly on, so hazardous an issue. Their policy is to conserve and not to risk. Senator Pome roy's amendment proposing universal suffrage in the true sense of the word, in cluding, as it does, all the women, will not secure more than a semi-humorous debate. Edward Johnson, who waa convieted and sentenced to tbe Missouri peniten tiary about three years ago for assisting in the robbry of the United States Ex press Cempaoy of forty thousand dollars, was pardoned by the Governor of Mis souri some six months since on condition that he would cooduct himself as an honest man and keep out of bad com pany. It having been recently ascer tained that he has not strictly complied with the condition of his pardon, and it k;nr ananRcted that be was concerned in the rohksry in St. Lonis lastAugust of the messenger of lbs Auaiss express, he waa taken to that city yesterday frem Chicago and ent back to the peniten tiary to serve out the remaining tweniv- six months of his term. Tennyson is opposed to th English man's inexorable law of a dress coat for dinner and a stovepipe hat for out-of-doors.

One dull day in August, just after noon, a balloon rose in the air at the foot of Cloet Hilli, ok the western edge of the central plain of England. It waa inflated with the lightest of goses which chemical kill could produce, and it rose wiih amazing velocity. A mile up and it en tered a stratum of cloud more than a thousand feet thick. Emerging from this the sun ahone brightly on the air-ship j the sky overhead was of the clearest and deepest blue, and below lay cloudland an immeasurable expanse of cloud whose surface looked as solid as that of the earth not wholly lost to view. Lofty mountains and deep, dark ravines, ap peared below the peaks and sides of these cloud-mountains next the suu, glittering like snow, but casting shadows as if they we're solid rock. Up rose the balloon with IrAmAndoUS velocity. Four miles above the earth a pigeon was let loose; it d ropped down through the air as if it had been a stone, me air The air waa too thin to . n n ti i . 1 1 to flv. It was as if a bark laden to the deck were to pass from the h.. altera of the sea into an inland r . I unsaline lake; tbe bark would sink at once in the thinner water. Up, up still hieher 1 What a silence profound. The n .Kla nf the akV were as sun as iue deepest depths of the ocean, wnere, as was found during tbe search for tbe lost Atlaotio cable, the fine mud lies as un stirred from year to year as the dust which imperceptibly gathers on the fur niture of a deserted bouse. No sound, ne life only the bright sunshine filling through a sky which it cculd not warm. Up five miles above earth higher than the inaccessible summit of Chimborazo or Dawangiri. Despite the sunshine, everything freezes. The air grows too tbin to support life, even for a few min utes. Two men only are in that adven turous balloon the one steering the air ship, the other watching the scientific instruments, and recording tbem with a rapidity bred of long practice. Sud denly, as the latter looks at his instru ments, his sight grows dim; he takes a lens to help his sight, and only marks from the falling barometer that they are rising rapidly. A flask of brandy lies within a foot of him; he tried to reach it, but his arm refused to obey bis will. He tries to call on his comrade, who has gone up into the ring above; a whisper in that deep silence would suffice but no sound comes from his lips he iB voiceless. The steersman comes down into the ear; he sees his comrade in a swoon, and feels his own sense failing h He saw at once that life and death hung upon a few moments. He seized or tried to seize the valve, in order to open it and let out the gas. His hands are purple with intense cold they are paralyzed, they will not respend to his will. He seized the valve with his teeth, it opened a little once, twice, thrice. The balloon began to descend. Then the swooned marksman returned to consciousness, and saw the steersman standing before him. He looked at his instrument; but now tbe barometer was rising rapidly ; the balloon was descending. Brandy was used. They had been higher above earth than mortal man er any living thing had ever been before. One minute more of inaction of compulsory inaction-on the part of the steersman, whose senses were failing him, and the air xhip, with the intensely rarefied gas, would have been floating unattended, with two corpses, in ihe wide realms of space. - Northerners is tbe South. A considerable party of Northern gentlemen are making a trip threugh portions of the Southern States with a view of examining the desirabilities of investment therein, and the Charleston Courier aliudes to the expedition in tbe following terms : These gentlemen were greeted, our correspondent writes, with great cordi ality by the citizens of Columbia. All men who will come South to rebuild our burnt and desolated cities, to erect man ufactories on our splendid water powers, to resuscitate our impoverished lands, and to take advantage of the many at tractions which our sunny South affords, and not to revile, abuse and create strife in our midst, we will ever welcome- Tbe party command capital, and are benefactors- The pretense that our people cherish hostility toward men of the North" who settle among ns, and who bave the decency to refrain from abusing us for the past, and from unduly criticising our habits and customs, is only an argument of partisanship to keep alive sectional dissensions. These gentlemen come to our little State in the heur of our great est trial. They have slept in a city once the Qjeen of Beauty of the South, but now almost desolate. In all quarters they will behold desolation, but let them be of good cheer, for our little State is still proud, and still hopes for better days. Our soil is rich ; the water pure; the scenery grand ; tbe climate mild; "the frosts of the North bite not, and the pestilence of the 8outh walketb not-" Let immigration come, all will welcome it, and when our cities, towns, villages, colleges, schools and churches flourish again ; when the " iron horse" thunders along bis iron track tbroupt lofty Blue Ridge, connecting tnis State with tbe distant West, then will South Carolina, in spite of politics aid politician, be a seat of wealth and a ied.um of trade which will excite the eevy of the greatest commercial nations now known to the world. The rttie men will be most hospitably entertained by the Columbians for a few daya, when they will leave on a specie! train for Greenville, tendered them, free of eharge, by the courteous and able President of the Greenvilie road, Mr. HammetU Tbey peak in glowing terms of tbe hospitality shown them by the noble people of Vir ginia aad North CareUoa. . . i e . i EDGE JU BLANKETS.

Wa have heard of Texas and Arkansas jurors deciding the life of a man by play ing a game of "old sledge," but the fol lowing statement, madeto uov. wens, oi tbe majority rule in tbe jury room, is about the first instance approaching tbe "jack flopping" process of rendering a verdict that has yet come to light in Vir ginia: William Armistead, of Ports South, Virginia, was convicted at the November, 18G3, term of the- Hustin's court, of unlawful shooting, and sen tenced to j.il for six months. Pardon was applied for by ten of tbe jurors by whom be was tried and by citizens, on the ground that there were mitigating circumstances, and of bis formsr good rharacter. It appears by the sworn statement of the jurors mat toe case was given to is. jury on the H h of the month ; that they were nnable to aeree. and remained in tk in.,.rnnm nntil tbe 16th, tbe jury I .t.nriinir then eisht for unconditional ao- I nnittal. two for conviction, and two for I I" ' . . . . compromise tbey being willing to vote i whichever wav misht secure a verdict. Tbe jurora agreed to drsw lots. Twelve I ballots were then placed in a hat.marked euillV." with twelve blank ballots, making in all twenty-four. The hat was thon shaken, and twelve ballots drawn out, and it was agreed that tbe verdict should be as tbe ballots remainicg in the hat indicated. On counting the hallote it waa found that seven had writ ten upoa them " guilty," and five were blank. The prisoner was thereupon, in pursuance of the agreement, found irtiilir Under such circumstances the prisoner cannot be said to bave bad trial by jury. Pardon granted. Msmfhis, December 17, 1868. MrflR. Editoes: Io speaking of raisine from five to ten thousand volun teers in Memphis to go over and assist Arkansas in her death-struggles for con stitutional life, liberty and rights, I wish ia tall vnn what I heard an old rusty- crusty " reb." say. He said the people of hi. nnntrv were comDletslV whipped; that no one could raise a company of twenty-five men in Memphis to assist ArLan.ni. even if aDDealsd to with the knife dripping with innocent wemen and children's blood;'that BrownloW might order twenty five big negroes to cowhide every man iu Memphis every evening at four o'clock, and it would be calmly sub mittal to so nerfect is the desire for n.ui. Tf all of us must submit to) such a reign of terror as now exists in Arkan sas, and under suck menial uicers, toe nnnsF wa HiB atmffclin ff for constitu tional and civil liberty the better. The people ef Arkansas should arouse them selves, proclaim that which they will not submit to, and call upon sister States for assistance. It is tbe duty of Memphians to arouse in this matter and act, and tell Clayton and Upham what they may de pend upon. What can be done, one will ask. Let thousands ot Memphians say to five or six hundred of Clayton's band at Augusta to turn loose the innocent, ce.se confiscation of private property, else the whole gang will be gobbled and dealt with as outlaws and cut-'.hroats. Make the melish law-abiding. Mihphis. After Indiana Xa-Elux. We hear it stated that General Joe Cooper, Commander-in-Chief of Governor Brownlow's militia, who has been io the city several days, on business connected with bis official position, left by last evening's train for New Albany, Indiana. Whether be goes there to look for Ku Klux, or is merely going through there on his way to the military reunt'eis at Chicago, we were not advised. AH we know is that we heard a very reputable gvntleman say that General Cooper had gone to New Albany. His appearanee in that neighborhood will no Joubt startle, if it does not greatly alarm, the masked men who, at three o'clock Satur day morning, shot the sheriff at New Albany, and afterward hanged Frank Reno and three of his associate express roboors, coqfined in the jail at that place. It is conjectured that, if caught, the lynchers will he taken to Knoxville for trial. Kathcille Union and American. Arrest of a Deipsrate Murderer. Tbe subjoined paragraph is copied from the Louisville Democrat : Rufus W. Morrow, tbe man who shot and killed Dr. Cbeutham a few months ago in Todd county, near E'kton, waa captured about one week ago, and by order of tbe j jdgeof the Todd Circuit Court, was brought to our jail for safe keeping nntil the trial takes place. Ab eld grudge bad existed between tbe par ties, and Morrow sought Dr. Cheatham and killed bim one night, after which he mounted a borte and made his escape. A reward was offered by Gov. Stevenson, and a'so by a brother of Dr. Cheatham, fur the apprehension of Morrow. We were unable to leara ia what part of tbs country he was captured- Tbe argument of tbe legal tender case before tbe Supreme Court of tbe United States tas been concluded. Monday next tbe decision of the court is ex. pected to be delivered. It is believed that all the jndges eight in number save one, tbe Chief Justice perbare, will concur in pronouncing the making of treasury notes, and currency based on them, a legal tender io the payment of private debts, to b without warrant in the constitution.
