Ami gives that body to understand the manner of bill that, nlotic, can secure his approval. We herewith publish that poition, lucidly und eloqiiMit ly expressed, of tho veto message. "It will be seen that my objec tion to thU bid extends to its un constitutional features, and it is fortunate for tho muse of railroad supervision that theso have been discovered thus early while there is yet time, for their elimination and the passage of soother bill. We nro pledged to the supervis ion of corporations of every de scription within constitutional lim its in the interest and toi the pro tection of the people, and the time has ciiitio when this pledge should be redeemed. Hut 1 Impress up ou jou that -legislation on this subject should bo fair and eqiiita bio else it will receive the instant condemnation of the people of Mississippi. They me wide-awake and in full accord with the pro gressive spirit which has caused such a marvelous rejuvenation of our country that is to-day known us tho New South. Thny heartily favor tho building of railroads and the lull development of our mate rial resources. 1'hcy cordially in vite tho investment of capital among us under the guarantee of H'fplc, legal and constitutional protection.

The Attempt to control tho property sf uuot her by a stran ger, oven where the right exists, naturally excites consternation and uhirm. Let him see to it that tho pciirl chain of moderation shall run through our legislation ou this snhjoet, bo that no uneasi ness or anxiety shall bo felt by the man in Now York who Ims invest ed all his capital in railroads in Miasisidppl, Let ita understand that tlio people of Mississippi de sire only n l',iir and reasonable bill which will bo t.utisfaetory to tho pul, lie and jiiKt to tho rail roads, wild, that they would out strip him in tho ecndeiiimition of a hill of uny other diameter." The message was sustained in tho House, only 5.1 voting ngninst, 41 for It failing to vote. It now remains to be seen if the members favoring supervision have tho wisdom to he guided by tho Governor's suggestion.

Thin would have been the wiso course topursue instead of attemp ting to drain through Battle Snake bayou; which was never intended as a drain. As is well kuown the Delta is traversed by two kinds of water courses.

Then we have iuter-flowiug drains as Dtaek bayou with low buckshot banks; and the depression lying between the Hat tie Snake bayou aud the river high lands. Into this .latter the towu south and west of the K ittle Snake bayou naturally drains; north and oust the drainage is all to F.laek bayou. Geuernl Ferguson has reported to the Towu Council that good and permanent drainage can be secured into the swamp stated. Our medical citizens strongly suspect that imperfect drainage is the true chiiso of the unusual quantity aud nature of the fever that has invaded so many house holds during the past winter.
