Ten years ago—a period within the memory of all—we had attempted but little; done lew. and accomplished almost nothing in the line of improvement, develop ment and enterprise, which now, like magic, hs» charmed her from the sleep of contentment and peace, and arrayed her stalwart limbs in the robes of re deemed and regenerated enthusiasm and lofty public pride; a drowainess which had eaused her commerce to dwindle into insignificance, and her agricultural products almost to prove a burden from the want of suitable outlets through which to reach a place of traffic. This defect is now partially remedied; and intersected at various points, from the Tennessee line to Louisiana, by rail roads, she has ascended one round in >he ladder of har future glory, and left the rear guard of Southern Slates, to ake her position among those of the Front rank. We want now a commercial empo -ium—a grand mart of trade, at which *e can concentrate nnd weave the in e rest# of oar population into a homo ;eniou# whole—from which we can Iraw oar foreign imports—anil to wh»ch *e can carry the products of the indnt ry of onr citiseoa. We mean a point >f convergence and of divergence—of :oncentration and irradiation. The harbor at Ship Idand, on our wn sea coast, presents a locality with he above qualities, and when we come a consider Mississippi’* true grandesr ml coming prosperity, from |the clear untight of reason and calm reflection, jen will we he convinced of the impe tus necessity, which there exists, of , mnding a commercial city of such a i re, a* will outstrip all emulation in ist sphere, even faster than New Or < a us fie# gone beyond her former rivals i i commercial honor* in the Forth- I eat. This can be done without inter- < ring with the welfare of any other J IT. t If we can afford a port on the sea mo!, which will admit shipe drawing f renty feet of water, and which will c re an assurance of a diminution of i in expense* on each, to the amount of ] vo or three thonsand dollar*, which i* i soeaaary to defray the pilotage and i vwage of those which ascend the Mi*- ( saippi river to New Orleans, we can i old <ml unrivalled and unequal induce- < ienl» to commerce, and in leas than 1 senty years can make, at the harbor i f Ship Island, a city, that will be the . ride and glory of our Slate. We can nly hope to do this, by the construe ion of the railroad to that place, which i now in contemplation, and the many roof* of its popularity, lead ua to in lulge the desire, that the whole State rill give such assistance to it, in its in ipiency, that nothing will be able to heck its progress. If ever the Ship Island railroad is ompleted, the facilities afforded to com - uerce will be so great, that we may nok, during the lives of the present eneration, for an emporium with its loving millions of inhabitants, keeping Lep with the busy and delightful hum f its factories; its thousand spires lib ig their heads towards Heaven, and (fleeting back the beams of a magmfi ent and luminous career—grand edi cee and noble structures, the abode* f intelligent wealth and greatness; a _i_t:_i_j_i. i _;.i ii. f every nation, and on whose bosom rill float tbe flag ot every oountrj, , nd a “crowned city, wboae merchants re princes, whose traffickers are tbe onorable of tbe earth." gW The little caucus to nominate andiJates for Judicial office are not in ood odor even with some of tbe nom- j sees, aa will be seen by the notice of ( as.

On motion of W. V. IUney, Esq, Hoa. James T Toison was called to tbe chair, and U. F. Gaddis appointed Sec retary. The Chairman in n few bri J re marks explained the object of tbe meet ing to be tbe oonasderntios of the Judi cial election, aid the action of the late Mississippi City Convention. James J. Swilley, Em, then offered tho following preamble and resolu tions : Waihkas, At a recent convention held at Mississippi City, affecting to speak for tbe Democracy of the 8th Judicial Distiict, certain nominations were made by which one candidate for Judge on the Democratic side was brought into the field, and since which a Know Nothing candidate has been announced for the same office; and whereas, it is evident that if the Dem ocracy wish the victory, they must unite upon the strongest man—and whereas, it becomes us, the Democracy of Lnudcrdsle, to express our choics sniong the severs! candidates and de tern iue on our future action.—There fore Httolvtd, That we do not recognize the so caHed District convsntion held at Mississippi City, as a body reflecting our wishes, or the choice of tbe Dem ocracy of this county, and that we will not support me Domination tor Judge there made. Retolrtd, That we are attached to the principles, and yield to no people in our devotion to the usages of the Democratic party—hut know of no usage to hind ns to the action of a con vention in which we bad no representa tion. Rttoiml, That the able, impartial, ind dignified manner in which Judge Hancock baa discharged the dutiee of .be office, renders Lira the decided reference of the Democracy of Lauder late ccunty for the Judgeship of the *tb Judicial District. Rrttolvni, That in order to secure the Section of a I letnoeratic J udge, we in ite and earnestly aolicil the coopera ioo of the Democracy of the 8th Judi ial District with us in the support of adge Hancock, the most available and id .to now before the people. Pending Ibe consideration of the sregoing, Col. K. A. Durr offered a res lution as a substitute for the above, nd favoring the interest of Judge >aniel. Much confusion arose, render ing n vote in the ordinary way quite mpossible—after various propositions rom the friends of both candidates, it ias agreed that the Democratic friends if each should retire from the Court touae to two different stores and there ign the resolution they were in favor if— the lists to be compared at 4 o’cTk [’.

Pursuant to previous notice, a large and enthusiastic Democratic meeting convened at this place, ia order to as certain the seutimeQls of tht Demc era ey of this county, in relation to the ip preacLing Judical election, and organ ised by calling the lion. Oeorg* Fvam to the chair, and appointing Col. J. J. Pegues, K- 11. Lott, and G«0.Id. Smith, Secretaries. The chairman explained the ohjecl of the meeting in a bri f ar.. jppropci ate manner. lion. Greene C. Chandler offered the following resolution and urged its adop tion in a speci h of some length : WuaaRsa, The Democracy of Clarke have bad no sufficient no*ice of this meeting, tho small jwvsters in regard to the same having been limilly circulated for a few days only, and whereas, the Democratic nominees have had no op portunity of canvassing the county, in defence of the convention that nomina ted them, while both the opposing can didates for Jadge reside in the county, and enjoy the advantages of a full can vass thereof. And inasmuch as tho rwmiioof* of said convention, will in it short time, present the claims thereof upen the democracy for support, in public speeches at the various election precincts, justice nud fair dealing to wards the democracy of Clark, and the I democratic nominees, as well as a sense of courtesy and respect for those demo crats wno mace me Humiliations at Mis sissippi City, imperatively require that we should not too hastily express an opinion in regard to the Mississippi City convention, that we should at least wait until the nominees Lave been heard in ita defence, therefore lltsolvtd, That we deem it inexpedi ent and improper for this meeting to express under the circumstances, any opinion adverse to the Mississippi City convection and its nominees. . Gen. W. li. Trotter opposed the adoption of this resolution, and urged tbe claims of Judge Hancock, where upon Hosier W. Davis moved that the -eeolutiou lie laid upon tbe table; wbicb motion was carried by a large major ity. Col. J. J. IVguea offered tbe fol lowing resolutions which were adopted with a single dissenting voteft Whbkkas, Tbe friends of Uon. Wm M. Hancock, having a high apprecia tion of his honesty, integrity,and abili ty, beg leave to tender him our most tea!ons and cordial support for the of fice of Circuit J edge. Therefore lit solved 1. That we do not think the action of the Mississippi City con vertion at all affects Judge Hancock's previous position—and it shall not hind os. Resolved 2. That the lion. Win. M. Hancock is our decided choice, over any of the other candidates ia the field for the office to which bo aspires, ard besides our earneel support, we will use all legitimate means to secure bis re •lection. Resolved 3. Tliat we have tried Judge Hancock and find him possessing to an eminent degree, those qualifications that are indispensable to the Judiciary That he is an able, impartial and un flinching expounder of the law, and we are unwii)wg that he shall be super seded, if our efforts car. prevent it. Resolved 4. That Judge Hancock, in tbe discharge of bis official duties, has gained a universal appoval through out the district, by tbe prompt, impar tial and bold manner in which he ha* enforced die criminal law, secured or der, and contributed toward* tbe im provement of the morals of tbe commu nity, as well as the ends of justice, and that he is entitled to the support, irre spective of nartv politics, of all the so let, law abiding, and order loving por tion of tbe district. Judge Hancock, by request, then addressed tbe meeting, and met with a most cct! -Missile reception. On farther motion, it was resolved that the proceedings of this meeting lie publish ed in tbe Eastern Clarion anti Cbiek aaalay Adrertiser, and other pafvers iu the district be n-qutsted to copy.

I entered the canvass with assurances of liberal support, and while I leave it thus abrujitly, this action is not occasioned Ly any perceptible dim inution of public favor. On the con trsry, I leave it at a time when it is (relieved that my prospects of election amount almost to certainty. 1 have during the canvass, evinced no morbid apjretite for office, neither have 1 exhibited any bitterness of feel ing towards the very es'imablt gontle men who competed with me for vour sntlisgo; and in justice to each of them, I hero say, that I have received the Limlest consideration from thetu.
