For mmo week past the read era of the Time Democrat hare eujoyed equal privilege for the pernsnl of detractions and sfain tier opou the national adminiirtra tion; with the readers of the Olobe Democrat, the Ciucinnottl Commercial Cazetto and other rabid Republican, papers. Aa that enterprising, but possibly uu conscientious, Journal circulates largely in thia vicinity we doeui it our duty to make certain explana tions of ita present extraordi nary practice, Politically consid ered the Times-Democrat, Senator Kustls, and the "Louisiana rlniit" which latter includes the Kopuli licau federal office holders of New Orleans; are one. When we make this aserliou we utter what ia commonly known and asserted tn Hew Orleans and throughout Louisiana. It la welt knoau to our waders that Mr. Cleveland declined to accept Senator Kuslis aa his ad viser upon Iionisiana Federal nk pointnieiits. Wo'will now inform them that thir net was a part of a policy designed to destroy the in fluence of the "Louisiana ring;" and to build up in its ateud a Stale party, which will not ihauio de coney and Democracy, aa that un holy and corrupt organisation bus doue for year past. In passing this Horcro Judgment upon tlio political machinery of Louisiana, wo but repeat what every cition of that Statu whom we have mot for years past, has asserted in bit terness of spirit. The Louisiana ring is a big thing and the Times Democrat ia a chief link. The rresiduut'a hostility toward the former, explains thenu inuia of the series of injurious infer ences and slanders upon the ad ministration with which tiieT.-D. apeclul have teemed. So inspired they are unworthy of Influence Time mid again have their falsity been proved, aa In the case of Senator lllackbum but the cor rectlone are excludod from that paper. The special about the Vieks bnrg 1'. (). and the refusal of Tost master General to furnish Oeu. Catching with a copy of the rhnrgca against Timiey, was a pure Action. These, are namplcs. That our reader may have fur ther proof that the Time-Democrat administration special are properly to be regarded but aa offensive effusiou of a running aore, wo refer to the following from the Commercial Herald: "This dispatch ia from a Republi can paper and must be taken with due allowance." The dispatch in question also appeared in the Times Democrat. The following from the. Now Mis hisslpplau should have included "Time Democrat." "We can't sec how it i that some of the Democratic press in the Ktato can give credence, and pub licity to what is telegraphed from Washington to such papers aa the Olobe-Dmnocrat and Philadelphia Time about I-amar, itayard, Gar land and others. Nino times out of ton the statements of these, cor respondent are lies of the whole cloth." There i of course a good deal ot natural though tiiithoughtful impatience with the administra tion, for absolutely unavoidable delays in tlio removal of objection able Federal officials. This will disappear. Rut were there to be a "clean sweep" in these early daya of the administration, mis take would ensue which would bo irremediable. A Mr. Tildcn said recently: "There is au ini mense work to perform. Of nil labor true reform is the most diffi cult. It cau hurdly bo completed in a single term. What has been accomplished in the two months and a half since the 4th of March is necessarily ou ly the beginning. We must clus ter arouud the administration, and thus keop our party to gcther, strengthen it, and enable it to niect it opponents in 1888 with solid trout." . Wo rannot beter close onr ex pression upon this matter than by appending 16 following from Son. ator Walthall ; "Grenada. Miss., May 23. Mr. M. lloruthal, Secretary Y. M. D.

C. Wai.tiui.U The Drrllir Uava The Surcl- He Ckargf. "We think Sov. Iowry has made a signal mistake io declining Capt. Walker's invitation." With a many n gibe and sneer, this ia the unanimous verdict of the jjress opposing the Govern or's reuouiinatioii. Wo may say that the press supporting him ia equally unanimous that ho has, signally, made, no mistake iu do dining said challenge. Whilo we do not assume to question tlio sin cerity of the auti-Lowry press, we eau but remark that if the Gov ernor has made a mistake, hi op ponent will ho the gainer by it. Let ('apt. Walker proceed with his ran vans arntTrrTgn'Tho liov- emor upon tlio charge promulga ted by tlio opposing press. If the Governor fail to appear and plead, his opponent will be clearly entitled to a verdict against him to the extent of tlio impresslou ha makes upon the sovereign. That our readers may form some idea of tho effect of tlio "charge" we will inform them that Capt. Walker some weeks since appear ed before tho convention of one of the sen cost counties and "ven tilated'' the Governor. To the best of our information tho con vention responded by electing Lowry delegates to tho coming convention. It is duo to candid treatment of the subject under iliscitssiou, to noto that the "charges" against tho Governor have at last been specified. They have been framed by a Yazoo patriot, and have been heralded through tho "honest press" as though they were new to the Lowryphobiaes. Said charges are as follows : 1st. That tho Governor did not veto an appropriation bill becauso it contained an item of '.ViO fur gna and fuel for tho Executive Man sion. 2d. Tlmt ho did not veto appropriations, for the Secretary of tho Lunatic Asylum Hoard, I'M), and for four clerks nnd a deputy Auditor 1100 per annum addition al pay each. 3d. That tho salary of tho Stale Librarian was increas ed I2S0. 4'h. That the clerk of the Supremo Court had his salary increased; and that tlio deputy Supreme clerk was elected clerk of tho Railroad Commission at a salary of I,r.(K. 5th. The Gov. emor appointed the Major-General of tho militia to go to Washing ton to represent tho Stato in a suit for which the Legislature np propriated a feo of fi(K). Otli. That tho Governor "obtained" .'iOO for repairs aud inciden tals, for Mansion, nnd $3,IMKI for repairs of public buildings. This is all. Now it seems to us that these items, aggregating some il(00 or J 7000, only ?M) of which is charged to have accrued to the Governor personally, mako up a tuiglity small business to agitato a State over. Wo publish the last paragraph of tho Yazoo watchdog's commu nication to show hi animus to ward the Democratic party of Mississippi : "When Lieutenant Gov. Shnnds comes to Jackson to select hi own individual Klection Commis sioners to facilitate tho adjust ment of tho ballots for hi re-election in 1883, ho will receive 75; and when tho Secretary of the Hoard, for aiding iu tho selection of the commissioners to facilitate his election as Secretary of State perforins his duties in 1885, he will receive 150. Aud whilo there is no increase in the salaries of 1884 ever those of 1882, as to these offi cers, I venture modestly to sag-', gest that In those years when these gentlemen nre personally i candidates and select their own Election Judges; they really ought not to charge tlio public with these sums." How any Democratic paper' could publish without spuming tho bfamy, the iusensate malevolence, of this paragraph we are at a loss to conjecture. KfbsWIs; Sti. !

If all that have made well meant objections to Lowry as compared to other Democratic candidates, are to be counted out from the support of IiJiwry iu case of his nomination, hi election instead of being a certainty, will become gravely questionable iu case the Kepublicuii abould put up a ral ly strong man. Does the Ledger desiie to place a portion of the Democratic party Iu that position by sayiug it has burned the bridges aud "cannot, even after his uoini nation, give him (Lowry) au honor able suppo.it r This is neither generalship nor good sense. Hoi ly Spring South. We agree with the South that this "smull shot" discharge of the Ledger is unwise aud impolitic. Hut we hardly think that any self- respecting Democrat would allow mere retorts to shake hi party al legiance. The South gets fully even with the Ledger by stigmatising it as the "organ of the Jackson ring.' And appcurs to really believe that the support of Governor Lowry is restricted to "a ring," that unfail ing scarecrow, which ia "mislead ing and manipulating the people." Thia bad ring is "writing letters nd sending out circulars to all the counties with stamps and sta tionery ut the expense of the State to put the wire pullers iu motion." Whero can such people expect to go to t In implying that the people of Mississippi can ho manipulated by these very shallow devices, Oiore Is conveyed rather a scurvy esti mate of their manhood or intolli giauco. Of course the South ha not seen one of those "circulars" Iniquitioiisly circulated through "stamp and stationary furnished by the State j" else it would blazon it in print to tho confusion of the conspiring bureau of cerrespou- ucuce. 1 rertlnent UurMloo. Iu speaking of the manufacture of homo nindo tiling, Dnn'I Den nett in tho New Orleuns Picayune, pertinently nsks: 'Cannot Lou isiana furnish clay to make ns good tile as they make iu tho West! liutture deposits and Natchez clay have been used suc cessfully for making fire uricks, and crucibles for smelting ores. The Ouachita river, tho blurt" lands of Sicily Island, and Port Hudson, lands on Red river, nnd In many other places, can doubtless bo found to niruisli good materials for making draining tiles. Or they could be brought trnm Ohio nnd Indiana in flat like Ilttsburg coal, mid Bold cheap." Natchez Democrat. As some of our citizens hare in contemplation the ostablismeiit of tiling nnd brick works here the above is of Interest. A very ma terial if not lusuriuouutiibl diffi culty In tho way of such mi iudut- try located hero, is the want of suitable clay hi tlio vicinity. It is tho common belief that there is no good clay on this side of tho Hague ; but we have boon reliably informed that it can be obtained near Silver Lake aud on Williams liayoii. That au extensive aud profitable trade iu drainage tiles, to say nothing of brick, could be built tip at Greenville is certain. Major Starling has complotod his survey of the country and drainugo contiguous to tho Hub ertsouvillo levee. He is now map ping out bis notes and will have the result of his labor displayed in time for tho "conference" of the two Hoards; which will be held at Austin, where the commissioners of the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta Levee District meet the first Mon day, the OUi day of July, 1883. The cominitteo of conference of this District are commissioners J. V. Stokes nnd U. It. Moore, W. A. Percy, attorney, and Win.

Clarion. Wo beg leavo to suggest to our friend of the Messenger that a "short treasury does not uecessary indicato extravagance, any more than a "long" or full treasury indi cates economy. The Treasury of tho United States is overflowing with accumulated funds, so it is said, aud the leading men of the Democratic party have all alone insisted that the Republican ad- ministration, which is eutitled to tho credit of this accumulated fund was both extravagant aud corrupt Philadelphia bus outlawed the J-nglisli Sparrow and put a price i upon the head of that aggressive invndnr j who is a pretty fair type ui his push and pugnacity of the race froiu whisk Ixo takes bid name. The Eiiolllon to (lose. , - any Executive action directw;tUe (iovt-riiiucut exhibits to continue thre. The sut'ject was discussed at ! l,'e meeting of the Cabinet to-day, and it was held that in view of the law of Congress of Feb. 10, lSKi, and the proclamation of the Pres ident nuder which the dates 'for opening and closing the Exposi tion were fixed npon there was no legal authority for the President's continuing the Exposition iu ex istence. It was considered fnr ther that if this were done by him it would be coustrued as commit ting the United States Govern ment to an extension of additional aid to tho Exposition and thus en courage falso hopes. The total amount of the claims upon the Exposition filed at the Treasury Department is now $307, 644 05, being soma 17,000 in ex cess of the last appropriation made by Congress. Up to this time no report of the indebtedness has bceu receiv ed from the managers of the Ex position. This fact creates some surprise, as it would be difficult if not impossible for the Treasury Department to pay any of these foreign creditors before the report of the Exposition managers shall have beeu received. Even with a full report by them it will be no easy matter to arrive nt a settle ment, as any differences between tho demands of the creditors aud the admissions of the managers will have to be settled by the courts. The excess of claims filed over the 1350,000 adds to the nu fortuuato complications of the settlements. BID 1GR01AD. A lot of barges were recently towed into Deer Creek through Hulling Fork, to carry out nil tho soed along the creek. The water fell so fast a dam was made to secure a suflioiont bead to float the barges out on. But the first one stuck on the dam, and there they are until ucxt year. The Commercial Herald thussketches the situation : "Capt. Jackson stated to a C. II. reporter that he had abandoned all hope of getting the tleet of boats and barges out of Rolling Fork until another high water comes. His steamer, the Marx with one barge.the "Captuin Jack," and a coal tender, have moved out from the mouth of Rolling Fork to Choctaw landing, ns the river was fulling so fast ho was afraid she would bo caught iu Indian chute, whore there is now but four feet of water. The steamer Doer Creek was chartered from the P. Lluo at 20 perday, and according to tho charter ho was to return hur here iu a good condition ns sho was whou ho got her. Cuptain Jack- sou will probably buy the Doer Crook and stop tho charter iu tlmt way so ns to prevent paying char ter money on her until the water rises. Tho barges Wilber. Phil Elliot, and two opeu ba-ges are with the Deer Creek and lclt with her in charge of a watchman. The Wilber is laying a short distunco bolow the dam In a short bend in the river where each of her knuck les nre resting on the bank upon either side iu such a position ns to require back water to cause it to float. Tho Harry which wag also above the dam was gltting out seed for the American Cotton Seed Oil Company, had her own barge, the Daisy, and two open barges be longing to ;the Meridian Oil Mills was loaded a number of days since, when she notified Capt. Jackson, through Mr. Phil Hickcy, that she was ready to come out. Capt. Jackson then chartered tho Harry at f 1.1 per day to help him get his seed down to his burge nnd boat dipt. John Sargent accepted this offer, nnd leaving his barge in tho Fork, went back up the river and waa caught. At the time Capt. Sargent notified Capt. Jacksou that he wa ready to come out everything was in good shape and could have got out. Wagons are hauling seed down to the mouth of Rolling Fork, a half mile distant and the Headlight has gone np to make short trips between that point and Choctaw whore the Marx lays.

This will be a novel display to our citizens; aud has already aroused much expectancy We hone that this first move ment of the kiud iu the State will result successfully, aud a really useful aud interesting impetus be given to military organizations by the young meu of the State. Mr. Tilford is iu correspondence with all the companies iu the State, sev eral of which have uccepted the invitatiou. It is a pity that we have no local company to partici pate in the drill. We hope that it will however be succeeded by the formation of one. The Aberdeen Examiner thus refers to the drill : "Tho Examiner has for years advocated aud insisted upon such arrangements as would secure a competitive drill of Mississippi companies and is pleased to learu of the prospect of a State drill nt Greeuville iu July. There are several companies well equipped with arms aud all the accoutre ments that are anxious to euter a contest fur the championship of the Mississippi soldiery, aud the prize drill at Greenville will be their first opportunity for a meet iug, except that of two or three companies on the Aberdeen Fair Grounds two years siuce. If the Greenville drill is a success in re gard to number of entries other contests will follow for competi tion between State Companies and the citizen soldiery will be im meiiscly benefited in organization and efficiency. In this connection we understand that the Aberdeen Fuir Association intends offering liberal purses for a drill of State companies ucxt full, which will at tract ar larger attendance than any other feature aud add popular and universal Interest to the occasion While npon the subject it may as well be remembered that there is a possibility of the Aberdeen Guards "trying conclusions" with the Vicksburg boys aud nil the other "boys" In the State, who see prop er to enter. Capt. James Diukins will certainly give nil competitors a lively turn whenever his com pnny enters the arena." The Gun Club.

This will ne cessitate a postponement of the shooting at Harriston junction as heretofore spokeu of.

His white hair and beard grew quite long during his illness. His body was much emaciated but the brow retained its grandeur. The features of tho dead poet were distorted by pain before death, but afterwards they as sumed their calm serenity.
