The rumor current in oar city last week, and njon which we batted a quib, In pleasantry, we are now informed is unwarranted. We are assured there i no foundation for tiie report, especially in so far as llie integrity of the editor of the opublican is concerned. Tho post office lien has again Wen summoned to fit on the Grand Jury. Spread yourself and see if yon can't hatch out one or two. in dictments. You'll have three weeks to do it in and none of the eggs are old and lots of good straw (bonds) to mako your nest with.

Dr. S. H. II. Tolcs, says his name is not Simon Hannibal Iloc-kerty Toles, as we are-pleased to call him, and wants to know "bow much we will give him to get him to tell ns his name V Just like them, always after money, ven want money -to tell a fellow their name. Well, Doc tor, we'll give you a nickle to tell us your name, then we'll give your name to a dog and kill the dog. We have had the pleasure of read ing the initial number of The True. Democrat, published at Jackson and edited by Maj. W. C. Capers, form erly editor of the American Citizen, of this place. The paper is neatly gotten up, and its editorials distinct ly mark the fact that no novice di rects the hand that pens them. We extend to the Major the right hand of fellow-ship and wish him and his associates every success. The people of Richland county, Ohio, are terribly exercised because iheir county officers have swindled them out of $16,000 dollars. They ouirbt to come to Mississippi for awhile. There is nothing like get ting used to a thing. Such a small item as the theft of $16,000 dollars lon't coneern tbo average Missis- nippian J We have endured so much that not to be swindled and robbed in ten times greater amount would give us more concern than the thefts themselves. Its nice when you get use to it so much bettor than be ing called "banditti" should you ob ject to it. THE HH.ITIA BILL. When Senutor Pease, from Mis sissippi, and Senator West, from Louisiana, proclaimed upon the floor of the United States Senate that " ascutssi nation was in the air of the South," the application was misunderstood ; but now we under stand it in so far as we of Mississip pi are concerned. We see now that we are to have assassination under the sanction of law; for the passage of this infamous bill means nothing more nor less than hluod. Blood of the citizens who will not longer submit to the oppression and tyran ny of intolerant rulers and task masters. Tho passage of this bill means a war between tho whites and blacks of this slate. It means the ii' tor cessation of the little peace, the little prosperity, that have ever ami anon pcoped through the clouds that have for the past eight years gathered about our political tky, nnd were to us tho objects of faint hojc of the breaking of happier, more peaceful, more plenteous days. This bill comes like another cloud and hangs its darkened folds over O'tr fields and above our doors; and until it is repealed, until the pow ers it confers are removed, we can not hope for peace. Pretonding, ae it does, to bo in the interest of peace, to subserve Ihere'iuiromonta of law, it stands - l,m.n mnclrerv and courts tho violation 6f tho Uw.

The times do not warrant it. In telligent public lime lit is oppos ed to it ; and if its enforcement is undertaken no ood will follow, but direst calamity will attend the effort. THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS. This august body met last Mon day and forthwith entered upon the work of piling up laxes for the year 1875, notwithstanding F. B. Pratt, Esq., attorney for the Boar J, to his civilit, be it said, enjoined upon the members the importance of going slow and urged them to make as few and as small appropriations as possible, if they would avoid involv ing the county in debt. In some instances they followed his good ad vice, while in other instances they approved with indecent and reck less haste the claims of some favor i e ones. We never did understand bow that ninety dollars was allow ed Iiichard Levy for building a bridge The account was ordered approved but we heard no vote tak en, for two of the mcmltcrs were occupied with other matters while tho President and Mr. Dickcrson decided that it was all right. But maybe its none of our business to pry into family matters. We un derstand that McCool & Co.'s report in rogurd to Dr. Toles and the Poor House was rendered and received and was all that Dr. Toles and his friends could wish. It wlite-vah cd the Doctor and wo suppose he and McCool are happy. John Otis mast, be at 'outs" with the partj-, for he failed to get his bill allowed for that bridge that hasn't got any nails and spikes in it. Our citizens do not know what they miss by not hearing the orato ry and witnessing the statesmanship of these intelligent men, who im pose taxes upon and disburse the money of intelligent people. One of these orators lets himself off somewhat after this style. Mr. Prcsidint, I done sworn off 'fore Christmas why I haiut gwine to vote no more for propriating nufin. You no why? yon want to no, 1 ax'you ? Well, I tell von. If you try to give snti.-facshun, j-ou cant do it. Do you want to no why T I ax yon. Well you cant. You cant please um all, so I done swore I goin to please none, I done seen it in the papers already that they pay this honibil board s'pivcrs is a pack cr damphools anyhow; did, and thats whats ailing of this here thin Aint I right? I ax j-ou? I know 1 i. If the honorable gentleman had bcon standing while he delivered this epceeh he would have, been in great danger of eolapsing, but, un fortunately for tho tax-payers he was sitting, consequently is ye alive. This same member thinks there should be no Legislature since that august body has repealed the law granting $100 pr annum out of the county school funds tor board and clothing for each free scholar at the State Universities. " Tako our Board through and through, out and out, it is the big gest farce out of the corn field. The labor expended by them in making their cross marks is sufficient t grub a fifty acre field of every roof, stump and weed in it We return our sincere thanks toJ those of our subscribers who have been considerate enough to heed our calls for payment of amounts due us, and who huve come forward and generously paid us what they owed us. There aro many names yet on our books of parties who have not paid us, and we hope they will follow in the footsteps of those who have paid. The sure guarantee to a clear conscience and real hap piness is a receipt for your subscrip tion to your county paper. Have this and you can sleep well, and not bo troubled with the thought that you owe tho printer. There are two classes of men, above all others that should be paid the preacher and the printer; especially the hit tor; for if the former fails to get his dues in this lifo be is sure of his re ward hereafter, but, who can answer for tho printer. The perplexities he encounters in his efforts to gel his dues in this world complicate his chances for the next. LEGISLATIVE ITEMS. The act to reduce tho number of circuit judges was indefinitely post poned last Wednesday ; also thu act to abolish the ollice of county Superintendent of Kducaliou. The (foveruor bns approved the following bit's: A bill to reduce the number of chancellors ; also the bill to incorporate tho (irand Lodge of Odd Fellows. The militia Bill was the oi-cusiou of considerable discussion in both Houses. The colored Keptiblii-tius were its main champions, wht e the Conservative and Democratic mem- hers earnestly opposed its passnije. ! A. I . . . .

In the House, on the 1st inst., an effort was made to reconsider action on the resolution to amend the Con stition so as to provide for biennial sessions of the Legislature, and com ing to a vote, '.bo resolution again failed. OVER THE STATE. The Legislature voted on tho 2d to adjourn on tho 15th inst. Good. Mr. Pat O'Loarv, formerly of Canton, died in Jackson on the 30th tilt. The State Treasurer is prepared to pay all Xew Warrants outstand up to number 5035. Tho .nilitia Bill ptsscd tho Leg islature on the 2d an 1 will no doubt receive the Governors signature. The State Treasurer, on tho 1st inst., canceled and retired, as pro vided ior by law, one hundred thousand dollars of the certificates of indebtedness commonly known as Alcorn money. Meridian Mercury Feb. 2: Yes terday morning, a whilo before day, John Hall, the watchman at the Bigby bridge of the A. & C. railroad walked out upon thu bridge to at tend to turning tho draw, and, by a fatal misstep, fell 50 feet into the river below, and was drowned in 25 feet of water. At last accounts tho body had iwtt been recovered. Corinth Sub-Soiler: On Saturday evening last, ex-Deputy Revenue Collector and ex-Post master A. D. Jones was arrested in this city by Duputy Marshal George Jones, and after being secured for the night was escort ed to Oxford on Sunday morning following. Mr. Jones is accused of appropriating Post-office finds. Water Valley Central : Last Satur day evening about four o'clock tho alarm of fire was given, and it was soon announced that the residence formerly occupied by Mr. lidering ton was burning. The house had been lately vacated, though all the furniture had not been carried away. How the fire originated we have been unable to learn. It was the property of Mr. W. J. Hughes, and valued at about $1,500, and was in sured for $1200. Meridian met with severe loss by fire Saturday night, tho 3lst ult. Messrs. Shannon & Ramsey's build ing was destroyed. Messrs Phillips & Co.'s book store, tho priming of fice of Messrs. Powell & Malone, the law offices of Capt. Grace, Judge Morris, and Messrs. Shannon & liam sey, with MeMill an s lin store, fell victims to the flames. The printing firms saved nothing. The insurance was small, excepting in tho case of Phillips' bookst o.iu and the stock of McMillan. GENERAL HEWS. In Congress tho other day, Beast Butler declared his willingness to support Grant for a third term ''to put down lawlessness in the South;" tut Hoar, Roberts and o1 her lead ing Republicans couldn't see it. In holding himself aloof from par tisan and sectional wrangles and de villi. ig his energies to the material interests of his State attd section, and especially the rebuilding of the levees, Hon. J L. Alcorn is win ning golden opinion from the berl sort of men. A dispatch from Ballimoro says that Bishop Whitington of Mary laud, has refused to countenance the consecration of Dr. Dudley, and refuses to sign his credentials; he bases this action, it is understood, on tho language of St. Paul, wherein the Apostle Kays a bishop shall be tho husband of one wife. Dr. Dud lay having been twice married, the Bishop holds he is ineligible to the Kp's -opale. Tho little Rock, Ark., Register : On Sunday last James F. Knox, a Deputy Sheriff of Red River county Texas, on a requisition from the Governor of Texas, arrested D. T. Alexander, an old citizen of Jack sou county, and for many years living ncaf Jacksonport, and always bearing the name ot a respectable, easy-going farmer, on the charge ot murdering Jacob Akard, in Lamar county, Texas, twenty-one yean j a-jo, on the 8th of December last. Alexander is about seventy-years old, with long streaming locks of snowy whiteness, which seem to re futo the horrible charge br tight against him. We understand that the prisoner, alter arrest, confessed his guilt. Deputy Sheriff Knox, with his prisoner handcuffed and bound, passed through this city on Sunday evening, on his return to lexas, where the case will receive a thorough investigation. Senator Schtirz, in his recent mas terly speech before tho United Slates Senate, on the Louisiana infamy. made the following good point : I shall be tbo last man on earth to say a word of excuse for South ern rullians who threaten a negro voter with violence. I know no language too severe to condemn ; but I cannot forget tho only act ot terrorism and intimidations I ever happened to witness with my own eyes was tho cruel clubbing and stoning of a col -red man in North Carolina, in 1872, by men ot his own race, becu ise he had declared for the Conservative- ; ami it the whole story of the South were told, it would be iliscovere I that sik-Ii a practice has nut been infre quent.
