EMMETT L. ROSS. Editor. Ganion, JUisij&ippi, May 29t 1S75. The grasshoppers arc again des troy vegetation in the Northwest. Th Cincinnati Commercial is af ter tho Kentucky Republicans for not declaring against a thinl term. Kyvrv dollar contributed to nian ufacturtM at the South is better than tivo dolltua-yut but at interest. Tn iuanulactuict there is new popula tion,, increased business, strength, .erf-reliance, and certain wealth. The Kosciusko Star and the Car timgiiiian are both advocating in a most earnest manner the nomina tion of lluu. O. It. Singleton for Congress, and agree with us, that it is the most availnhlo and suitable at an for the place in all the district. Not only have sevoral of the lend ing papers iu the district expressed preference for the lion. O. li. Singleton for Congress, but we are assured by private letters from prominent citizens that his nomina tion and acceptance will bo hailed ilh great rejoicing. Row in the Radical camp. Chan cellor Brack wants to remove Col. o. ivn f K.- : . ,. f DUVV M Wll Jri'Ul Ills I'Ukiwii v. otflcia printer Cause, we nnder- "Mad, Wilson is too much ot a Xiles man and too little for Warner. Go it boys ; fight it out on that line. Tbe name of Capt. IL D. Money, .Mayor of Winona and editor of the .Advance, is mentioned for Congress from the 3d district. A gold sug gestion. We would like very much to see our esteemed contemporary occupy tbe position. There is an old saying M Money makes the mar pi." We would liko to see this Honey make the Mayor go to Congress. Hen. Smith, we are told, owns a dairy farm in Colorado, and is now there superintending in person its affairs It is related that be ha some blooded stock and cows that cost one and two thousand dollars each. The last we heard from him ir, that tbe grasshoppers had at tacked his farm and cleaned him ont, and had commenced upon his cows oti account of the greenbacks invested in them. The Philadelphia Centennial Soard of Managers have appointed Colonel Lamar one of the orators ti the approaching celebration, and General Joseph E. Johnson one of the masters of ceremonies, and ask no iron-clad oath of them. This is an olive branch that will be re ceived by the people of the South with fraternal feeling. The iron clad oath exacted by partisan offi cials from commissioners from the Southern States is an insult to our section, and merits our indignation and contempt. Col. Fleet T. Cooper has received his card to the Press Convention from President Harper, and yet he is not happy. He wants tbe "whole ng," or in other words, a like card for every Radical editor in the state. vt ell, it would be an oua picture, the Mississippi Press Association folding fellowship with the widow jind orphan robbers of the Radieal Press. Then, the matter of social quality. We don't think the aver age newspaper men in Mississippi jias a very great hankering after or tbe desire to meet and associate with Cordoxa and others of the Plain Dealer's editorial staff. Real ly, Brother Cooper, there is too TOuch hog, entirely too much. We wish it understood that while we advocate an earnest and deter mined effort on the part of our c-iti-xens in the prosecution of the ap proaching campaign, we counsel the greatest caution and prudence. ' Let no act be done and nothing be said that will in the least detract from the merits of our cause. Let noth ing 1m t fuir and honorable means le employed to carry the election, fet men who differ with us politi cally lie convinced of the impor tance of honest rule. Let them un derstand that it is the dishonest of ficial, the ignorant framcr and ad ministrator of the law that has bronght so much distress upon our connty and t-tate, and they will readily Inrn from them and give their support to competent and hon est men tr office. Gov. Smith, of Georgia, nominat ed Mr. CJeorge Hillyer as commis sioner to represent tluit state in cclebraling the centennial anniver sary of American Independence at Philadelphia in 1870. He was duly Appointed by President Grant and h:s commission transmitted by Sec retary Fish, who also sent with it jiii iron-clad oath to be signed by the commissioner. Gov. Smith forthwith returned to the President fhe commission and oath, accompa nied by a manly letter in which we j find lb following : "ISy requiring 4-ommiioners U take this oath the 'rc engaged in no calling whatever, fouthrn State are, in effect, ex-wlmrarn nothing, yet must bo fed rinded from all voice or partii-ipa- and clothed at somebody's expense. 1 ion in the celebration referred to. ' Shrewd men looking about for a f l must lie ktiowo to the President 1 place, to IocmIu arc not apt to cast that almost Ibe entire body of tho( their lortonws where it is more than thitc opl l the South were en- prol able fifteen or twenty per rent joiged, actively r otherwise, in be their earnings hitist go annually j lialf of tlwir awn section in the Into war between the 4atrs, and th.it they ran take no part in the t-xpo-etumt tnlr 1 requirements now of tV si." The Jackson Times of the 2."tli goes for us again in an article ot a column's length, and still insists that we should go head," because we desire thai the bona tide citizens and tax-payers of Madison county should he placed ut the head of their own affairs. Tin: Times styles i ur teachings "incendiary." Well, if our love lor an oppressed people, if our desire that they should be rid of ignorant, ;i:t.lcrant ami abusive otlicials is ii.cc!:::iary, we accept the charge with all our heart. We glo ry in being an " incendiary," if to hate thieves ami oppose the rule and domination of illiterate, incom petent r.mi corrupt officials consti tute inecr.diarism The time has en mc v;hc" there is to be an end of this tliirsr. Our people are becom ing aroiis- i, and we propose to keep up the enthusiasm and spirit and to leave nothing that is fair and honorable undone to incite them to the iniporlanco of carrying our coumy against its enemies. are determined to carry the enmity and are not at all concerned about the 2,000 Radical majority, which can't be counted on by our enemies with any certainly ; in fact, a large proportion of that majority is as much concerned and as anxious as we are for a chango in tho ad ministration of county and state af fairs. That majority is as much af fected as we are by the results of in" competent, intolerant and oppres sive administration of our stato and county affairs, and know that the ills wc bear in the way of poverty and loss of credit is attributable solely and alone to the party in power. The honest people of Mad ison county arc determined " to put their very best men forward and by so doing they will render them selves invincible. They will deserve success, and will achieve it, too." We are lotted to know that the 3oung men of ourtowu contemplate organizing a Democratic-Conserva-tive Club for the coming campaign. This is right, and we ti ust that the young men throughout tho county will organize similar clubs, and en ter earnestly upon the work of re deeming the county from tho rule and domination of the Radicals. Thorough organization and a deter mined will to carry the county against all opposition will secure success. Wc are in a better condi tion to accomplish this great and good end than we have ever been ; for the reason that the impression prevails that the Radical majority in the county is so largo that it can not be overcomc,conscquently there are no aspirants for the various of fices, no division among friends, no cliques in favor of any particu lar candidate for office. It is re. garded as a forlorn hope and no one is anxious to take the lead, no one is seeking office. We musl there forts seek men to hold tho office?, urge to become candidates, and leave no honorable means unem ployed to elect -them. When the county convention meets on the 24th of July next to elect delegates to the State Convention to be held in Jackson on the 3rd of August, we can make nominations for coun ty offices and for tho Legislative ticket. Let the young men of the county, in the mean tituo. form their clubs and organizations in every beat and send delegates to the coun ty convention. We believe there are good and competent men enough in tho county who have the patri otism to make tho contest. A nan who is unwilling, in such a crisis as the present, when called upon to make the race, certainly would be unworthy the suffrages and confi dence of the people should ho at some future time, when tbe clouds are gone and the way blazed for success, aspire to election Jto oftico. We are in that stress when tho of fice must seek tho man and not the man the office. And in this wo have a hope of obtaining good and true men. Tbe greatest curse to a country is the greed for office 'and it is a characteristic of the party now in power, especially in the South, that it is composed of office holders and office seekers. Grant wants a life lease on the While house. Ames wants to go the United States Senate, and Warner, Niles, Morgan and a multitude of non descripts want to go to Congress, wbilo Al fred Handy and Sinful H. H. Toles and other corrupt and illiterate numskulls aspire to the State Senate and House of Representatives. They arc alreaJy laying their plans and drawing their lines for office It is a sure sign, iu these days of back pay grabs, subsidies, etc., when a man annnounces himself for office that ho it after plunder, bribes and other perquisites, and he is a rare and exceptional case, who seeks office for tho good of anyone else but himself. It is all very well and very wiso to talk about immigration, and to invite people at a distance to visit our section and satisfy themselves concerning our soil, climate, etc. But it has occurred to few, we sus pect, that these advantages lose much in the estimation of parlies who visit us when they sea the large number of idleis among our people of both colors. It is a notorious fact, that ivo have a large class who lor the maintenance ol a lion pro dining clement. When our idlcrsi mi to work and leave the railroad ' depots, street i.oriicrs and o'hes-l:j:ii:.:-. of Ukne.-s, .' h-Mt thov- b- come producers, thrift will follow, ami where tin-ill is manifest, immi gration, enterprise and capital will come. OVER THE STATE. Columbus has an artillery coin- pany. Charley Goodwin killed Win. Kellev being drunk, , in Crystal Springs recently. The crops in Scott and liankin, are said to be finer than they have been for years. The question of a telegtnph line (ri)iii Vicksburg to Greenville ami intermediate points is agitating tho Vicksbiirg mind a' present. The Jackson Daily Times says that l P. Lincoln has been very generally recommended for Consul to ('anion, China, to succeed Dr. Tindall. Reports for all parts of the state concerning the crops are favorable. ft is gratifying to know that much land has been devoted to corn and smaller grain Major John Williams has been requested to read Will Carlelon's poem, Army of the Dead, at Vicks burg. on the oeeas'on of the decor ation of the ir raves of the Federal dead. Newton Ledger: It is with pro found regret thai we learn, just be fore going to press, ot tho acini oi Hon. Judge Watts, which occurred last night about one o'clock. He was nearly seventy years old, and was highly esteemed and respected by all who knew him. The True Republican (Aberdeen') hoists tho name of Finnis H.

J. 15. Linn, rector, caught a thief in the Lpiscopal Church. The wretch was a stout white man ; and when caught was under one of tho benches, his boots and coat being off. lit had collect ed all the handsomest prayer books and other things, upon winch he designed speculating in the country. He entered by breaking two panes of glass from a side window and was turning things topsy-turvy when Mr. Linn discovered him. Meridian Mercury : Mr. Gullet's litllo boy, about six years old, last evening, with other boys, was play ing on top of tbe kitchen li ot the Phenix hotel, and accidently fell from tho top, about thirty-two feet. Br accident, a negro standing on tho top of the conrt-house steps saw tho fail, and ran ana picKcu mm up iu a senseless state and carried him up stairs where medical attention was immediately provided. The boy revivod, and wo sincerely hope may roeover. His injuries must be very serious. - The Vicksburg Monitor records a fatal shooting affray that occurred last Monday at Chotard's Landing Issaquena county, about 50 miles above Vicksburg, between Mr. J. P. Strong and Dr. R. B. Holmes, brothers-in-law and partners in planting and merchandising. Holmes was killed and Strong shot through the thigh. The fuss occurr ed about the disposal of Mrs. Holmes' property, who is on her death-bed with consumption. Strong was tried before a jury of inquest and a ver dict of justifiable homicide rendered. Water Valley Central: Mr W. B. Tuttle, a native of Detroit, Mich igan, about thirty -ono years of age, and a' painter by trade, committed suicide Thursday morning last, by shooting himself through tho head with a pistol ball. The deceased had been for some time employed in the painting department of the car shops of this place, but, with some thirty others, was deprived of employment a tew weeks since, owing to tho great falling off in the business of the road,and it is thought that hard times and want of work led him to commit the act which has sent his troubled spirit into the presence-chamber of its Author and Judge. Clerical ScandaL Tho following is taken from the telegraphic columns of the New Or leans Picayune of the 23d. Thero is no doubtin our mind that tbe Rov.(T) Mr. Copeland is none other than " Brother Horton," who figured here rather notoriously two years ago : Baltimore, May 22. A weekly paper of this city, The Baltimorean, publishes to-day a spicy scandal, coupling it with a party represent ing himself to be a minister of the Gospel and delegate to the late In ternational Sunday School Conven tion in this city. The facts seem to be as follows : A few days beforo the assembling of the convention a person having evory appearance and bearing of a gentleman, presented himself at the rooms of tho recep tion committee of the convention, anil represented himself to be the Rev. W. E. Copeland, a Baptist minister from New Orleans, and previously from Texas. Ho was an accomplished musician, instrumental and vocal, with an as sumed air of deep piety, and suc ceeded in ingratiating himself in tho good opinion of tho unsuspecting committee. On Sunday, May 9ih, ho preached in Westminster Church in this city. On tho following day (Monday) a dispatch was received by the committee from Philadelphia stating that Rev. Mr. Copeland was an impostor, and warning them to look out tor In ni. The receipt of this dispatch soon camo to the knowledge of Copeland, and he hastily left. While here he registered at ono hotel as W. Jv Copeland, Massachusetts, at anoth er as George Warren, Boston, Mas sachusetts, and at another as Mr. Reid. While at ono of tho hotels he inveigled to his room a lady whosc acquaintance he had obtru sively made here in an art gallery, evidently for the purpose of effect ing her ruin, but it is positively slat ed he did not occupy a room with him, and was only present nt din ner on ono occasion. Copeland, alias Warren, alias Iteid, is said to bo of most imposing appearance, weighing about ono hundred and seventy-five. Soon after reaching Baltimore ho visited a barber ami had a flowing black beard shaved off. . The investigation now being inado into the cliaractci of Senator Spen cer, of Alabama; and into tho man ner of his eleutian, bus brought to light the facf that he was a North ern bar-tender before, the war, a fol lower of a negro .regiment during the war, and that his election was the -worst of frauds. It isHiich rn.ii as those that Grant looks to fnf a rr-ii'iiiiri:tiuij. Governor Ames and the Judic'ary. In his recent speech at Friars ! Point, Miss., Gen. James K. Chal mers thus referred to and blistered Governor Ames, in connection with his judicial api- .int incuts : In violation .i. the Constitution, he would li' -I 'ininate the Chan cellors and M-i.d in his nominations lo the Scii:: for approval while it was in ser-sinu, and thereby gratified his vanity and iovc of tyranny by dancing on the tenter-hooks of ex pectation a lot of political men dicants, whom he hoped to bind to his triumphal car. And again, in violation of the Consliition, he till ed and removed these offices at pleasure in vacation, and kept his unfortunate appointees in constant dread of losing their jud.cial lives, by holding in terror over their heads the threat that he would not send in their names to the Senate at its next session. I5ut this though a vi olation of his oath of office, was but a small matter when compaicd with his removal of one Chancellor be cause he had refused bail to a Radi cal murderer, and another because he failed to decide a railroad case according to his dictation ;and these acts again sink into insignificance when compared with his subsequent conduct, when we find him invad ing the sanctity of tho Supreme Bench, and attempting to make a tool ot its gray haired Chief Justice to assist in coercing the judicial opinion of his son, who sat on tho Chiueory Bench, and that, too, in a case which he knew must ultimate ly come before the Supreme Court for decision. To the Owners of Beal Estate. The following, from the Holly Springs South, is equally applicable in Madison county : Your property has been assessed for taxation for the ensuing four years, but the valuation placed up on it is still under the control ol i lie Asssessor, and will be under the Board of Supervisors until, and in cluding their July meetings. No owner of real estate should let this opportunity pass to prevent injus tice from being done in its valuation. Real estate is greatly depressed in its market value and is almost un productive, and a fair, uniform as sessment must be secured or owners will suffer. Whcro the owners have not attended to this matter in per son, we di.re say, as a general rule, the old assessment has been adopt ed, and as a general rule, too, this valuation is manifestly too high. After tho July Term, your day in court will have passed. Immigration to the South. Mr. D. Dennett, in tho last num ber ot Our Home Journal, takes a very sanguine, and we hope proph etic view, of the immigration which is to help us out ot our present Slough of Dispair. There are hundreds ot thousands in the North and West who desire to settle in ih-i "Sunny South." The experiences oi the Northern soldiers iu li.o South during the late war have .pread much light in higher latitudes in relation to the character of the soil, climate and productions of low latitudes. .Many i n Alienees hare been at work since the war to scatter light on the same subject. In spite ot tho falsehoods and slanders sent forth by our ene mies, the truth is proving too pow erful for these slanders. The 700,000 square miles of South ern territory j et uncultivated will be, in a gieat measure, settled up by industrious farmers from other lands. The vast mineral resources of the South will be turned to valuable ac count. Our beautiful South is not doomed to be either Africanized, or utterly destroyed by demagogues. Or allowed to go back into a wilder ness stale. Its future will be more glorious than its past. It will yet be the gar den spot, the glory and pride of this continent. It will be prosper ous and rich in due time, or tnc writer does not truly understand the "signs of the times." Yazoo City Democrat. Annual Convention of the Hissiuip pi rreu Association.
