UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI.
The late Commencement was indeed
a brilliant affair. In no college in the
United States are greater efforts made to
elevate the standard of scholarship, and
to send forth into active life soundly edu
cated younjr men. The Fncnltv is an
able and laborious one. The orovisions
for imparting instruction are unsurpassed
in any similar institution. Richly en
dowed, as it has been, through the mu
nificence of Congress, the State legisla
ture has only to act honestly and honor
ably by it to cause it to rival the first
colleges in the union.' The amount due
from the State, i, according to Gov. Mo
Rae, $674,329,49. It has never cost the
people of Mississippi one cent. The
avails of its generous endowment have
been absorbed into the treasury of the
State ; and all its friends ask for it, is
that it may receive a sufficient amount to
enable it to fulfil its high destiny thus
to become a fountain of immeasurable
usefulness, and a monument of imperish
able honor, to the commonwealth of which
it bears the name.
The Baccalaureate Sermon was preach
ed in the Chapel by the Rev. .Wiley M
Reed, from the 9th verse of the 10th
chapter of Ecclesiastes : " Whatsoever
thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy
might ; for there is no work, nor device,
nor knowledge, nor wisdom in the grave,
whither thou goest." It was an eloquent
discourse, and listened to with breath
less attention. Monday was occupied by
the Sophomore prize declamations and
the celebratious of the Ilermean and Phi
Sigma Societies, On Tuesday morning
speeches were delivered by members of
the Junior class. At 4 o'clock in the af
ternoon, Hon. J. W. Clapp, of Holly
Springs, delivered the annual address be
fore the two Literary Societies, and, at
night, Mr. F. W. Keyes, of Carrollton,
addressed the Alumni. The exercises of
the day were closed by a Levee given by
Wednesday was commencement day.
A large crowd was in attendance, em
bracing much of the beauty and the chiv
alry of the State. At the conclusion of
the usual exercises by the graduating
class, the Hon. Win. L. Sharkey was in
troduced to the audience, and delivered
to the Law Class a most able and im
pressive address, ine bopnomore pri

the committee, through their chairman,
tho Hon. L. Q. C. Lamar, who, in a most
eloquent manner 6ot forth the character

At night a complimentary ball was
given to tne Graduating Class, Tnus
closed the exercises of one of the most
interesting commencements it was ever
our good fortune to attend. Every Mis-
sissippian should feel proud .of such an
institution, and should ever cherish it as

Th e Pic-Nic Near Prairie Mount.
Last Friday we shall ever remember as
among the most agreeable days of our
life. " From morn to sot of sun" we en
joyed the music of sweet voices, and
gazed on many happy, smiling, and sunny
faces. We know not well bow the day
could have been more pleasantly or more
profitably employed. The Pio-Nic, in
deed,, was one of the most delightful
little social reunions that we ever remem
ber to have attended. In addition to the
good things, there we: e present not a few
spirit-like creatures, who would make
" a sunshine in a shady place." Thanks
many thanks to our kind lady friends
for their generous present of wine and
cake a fit substitute, by the way, for
the ambrosia and nectar enjoyed by the
Gods and for relieving one otherwise,
gloomy and monotonous day, from the
cares and vexations of an editor's life !

A STARTLING DISCLOSURE.
Ex Attorney General Glenn recently
delivered, in Yazoo City, a speech, a re
port of which we find in the Banner.
It is not our purpose to give an extended
synopsis of this speech we only wish to
call attention to one particular part that
will doubtless cause a sneer of contempt
to curl the lips of honest men. In the
course of his remarks he touched upon
the doctrine of Squatter Sovereignty, a
doctrine which he confessed had puzzled
him long and much. lie first began to
investigate that question in the Cass and
Taylor canvass. He was sub-elector for
Cass in the county of Hinds, when the
celebrated Cass Nicholson letter made
its appearance. Its ambiguity puzzled
him and he felt alarmed for the South.
He wrote to Mr. Cass asking an explana
tion, and, in due course of mail, received
a reply, in which Mr. Cass stated that if
he explained his letter in accordance with
Southern sentiment, be would lose the
support of all the Northern States, and
if he adopted a Northern interpretation,
it would kill him off in the South, that
he bad promised the Convention not to
write any more letters, and consequently
could not give him any satisfaction on the
subject. Which letter Mr. Glenn pocketed
and voted for Cast, who has since ex
plained the letter satisfactorily to his
Northern friends. Party discipline would
not allow him to publish that letter to the
Pitiable indeed must bo the condition
of a man when party jgag stifles the ex
pression of truths that vitally concern
the interest and honor of his section.
Yet, we are told, this man has the brazen
effrontry to proclaim himself the particu
lar champion and custodian of Southern
rights and honor. Truly, he has proved
himself a faithful guardian.
For some time past we have seen, trav
eling the rounds of the press, a letter
from the pen of this man, in which is ex
plained his position in regard to the Pres
idency. He talks as if he would be con
ferring an honor on the Domecratic party
by being a candidate, and says :
" If that party shall determine in the
Presidential election of I860 to adhere to
the principles embodied in the compro
mise of 1850, and ratified by the people
in the Presidental election of 1852, re-affirmed
in the Kansas-Nebraska act of 18
54 and incorporated with the Cincinnatti
platform of 185G ; as expounded by Mr.
Uucnanan in lus letter accepting the nom
imation, and approved by the people in
bis election ; in that event my menus
will be at liberty to present my name to
the Convention, if they see proper to do
He also names some conditions such
as the interpolation into the creed of the
party any such issues as the Revival of
the Slave Trade, or a congressional Slave
Code for the Territories &c, under which
he will not accept the nomination. The
Mississippian salts down the little giant
in short order. List its song. . ' ,
" There is a sublimity of absurdity in
the idea that Douglas should speak with
an air of gravity of his nomination for the
Presidency at the hands of a party whose
confidence, he has so wantonly abused,
which baffles all attempts at serious re
mark ; but the whole thing rises to an incal
culable height of preposterousness when
the same rekless undertaker of adventures
arrogates to his infallible self the office of
prescribing a line of policy for the gui
dance of the party. If Arnold from the
cavernous depths of infamy to .which
his, treason had consigned had sent forth
his voice to proclaim the condition upon
whieh he would consent to become the
generalissimo of the revolutionary army,
this manifesto of Douglas might find its
" Ysa have my Anawer."
The Washington States has been ex
ceedingly anxious, since the convention
of the Douglas factiomsts, to extract a
categorical answer from their organ, the
Philadelphia Press, to the question, " Do
they pledge themselves to support the
nominations of the Charleston Conven
tion' 1" -To this question the Press thus
If the nominees of the Charleston Con
vention shall be the representatives of
tne principle of non-intervention and pop
ular sovereignty, as accepted, advocated
and understood in 1856, as explained and
defended In 1858 by Stephen A. Doug
las and his associates, and as applied by
the leading Southern statesmen, then do
we pledge ourselves to support the nomi-
nees oi mac convention witn all our
zeal. But if, on the other hand, that Con
vention shall be committed, in any shape,
to the theory so eloquently denounced by
the States that this Government is to
be dedicated V to the propagation of sla
very" then we shall unquestionably op
pose its nominees."
This Is proof sufficient as to the de
signs of the traitorous faction and their
unscrupulous leader. They intend if the
Charleston Convention does not endorse
the Freeport, or the Freesoil heresy of
squatter sovereignty, to bolt, it wilrbe,
in truth, a happy riddance.

Correspondence of the Ohio Statesman.
The Failure HUre Law A Depety V, S.
THE CASE OP Mil. EZEKIEL T. COX IN OHIO.
Zanesville, 0., Juno 15, 1859.
Ezekiel T. Cox, (the father of the Ohio
representative commonly known as
" Sunset Cox") has been for upwards of
twenty years a member of good standing
in what is called e the Market-street
Church, of Zanesville, 0., and has resided
upwards of forty years in and near that
city. He has been United States Depu
ty Marshal for the Southern District of
Ohio for the last year or two, and had the
fugitive, Charley Jackson, recently arres
ted by virtue of a warrant in his hands.
In consequence of Mr. Cox's action in
this matter, the above Church resolved,
among other things, that he " had par
ticipated in the fugitive Blave case in a
manner wholly unwarranted by the word
of God, and by so doing had grieved his
brethren in the church, and brought dis
honor on the cause of Christ and the
Church of which he is a member."
In their preamble, the church stated
that Mr. Cox, in acting as a Deputy Mar
shal of the United States in this case, ac
ted contrary to the spirit and teachings
of out holy religion, and the express com
mand of God himself, as recorded in Deu
teronomy, 23d chapter, 15th and 16th
verses : " Thou shalt not deliver unto
his master the servant which is escaped
from his master unto thee," &c. This
was the only portion of the Scriptures
quoted, as we understand, to prove that
his proceedings under tne Jt ugitive blave
law was unwarranted by the Word of
God. A special church meeting having
been appointed to tryjhim for this offense,
he was requested by a Committee of the
church to appear before it on the 6th
Inst., and present his views of duty in re
lation to the matter. He accordingly
appeared, and stated that he did not be
lieve the church had any right to call him
to an account for his action under the
above law ; that it had been in force a
number of years, and if so iniquitious,
why had it not been repealed ? but as it
was not repealed it ought, in his opinion,
to be obeyed, and would be by every
good law-abiding citizen of the Union.
Mr. Cox stated to the church that it was
preposterous to suppose that the above
passage from Deuteronomy, written some
thousands of years ago, had any applica
bility to his proceedings under the Fugi
tive Slave Law at all, and that the first
verse of the same chapter, nnd divers
others of the same book, might with as
much propriety have been cited by the
brethren to prove his conduct unwarran
ted by the Word of God. Dr. Adam
Clarke, one of the most profound schol
ars, said Cox, remarks in bis commenta
ries, as to this 15th verse of Deuterono
my, that it means, " a servant of an idol
atrous master, that lie might join himself
to God and his people." "In any other
case," continues this learned divine, " it
would have been injustice to harbor the
runaway." Mr. Cox showed that this
fugitive, Charley, did not escape from
idolatry to join himself to God and his
people but ran away from a kind and
humane master, stole a horse, saddle and
bridle, and committed a criminal offence
besides of the most afroeious character,
with a poor, weak white girl. Yet, such
a wretch, Mr. Cox stated, appeared to
have enlisted the deepest sympathy of
many of the leading members of the
church, and that he was arraigned before
it for no other cause than having perform
ed his sworn duty as an officer of the
United States in arresting such a miscre
ant who, he stated, was not fit to run at
large, or for any society, save practical
amalgamationists or ultra abolitionists.
Mr. Cox stated that he was cited to
the laws and ordinances under the Mosaic
dispensation, to prove his unwarrantable
conduct as a professing Christian, and no
reference made to the New Testament to
prove it ; that be had been led to believe
that the old dispensation, with its rites
and ceremonies, and comparative dark
ness, had been somewhat superseded by
the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ,
and he thought it would be better to ob
serve His precepts and instructions, and
those of His inspired Apostles than the
ordinances of Moses enacted in those ear
ly days of the world, and which he had
shown were not at all applicable to this
enlightened age, under the Gospel dispen
sation. Mr. Cox said he had never been
a slavery dropagandist, but that he bad
always intended to be an advocate for
the maintenance of the Constitution and
laws of his country. Surely, said he, no
nnstian of any pretensions to Intelli
gence will deny that Slavery was
at least recognized and tolerated when
Christ was on earth, and during apos
tolio times as well as under the Mo
saio aispensation ; and referred to
Paul to Col: "Servants obev in all
things your masters according to the
flesh," &o. Also his directions to Titus :
" Exhort servants to be Obedient to their
own masters, and to please them well in
all things," &c. " Not purlioing. (that is.
not stealing, as the fugitive Charley did,)
but showing all good fidelity," &o. He
also referred to the 3d chap. 1st and 2nd
verses of Paul to Titus : " Put them (the
brethren and those to whom he preached)
in mind," (said Paul,) " to be subject to
principalities and powers, to obev
magistrates, &o. "To speak evil of no
man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, show
ing an meekness to all men."
"By principalities," Dr. Adam Clarke
says, " we are to understand the Roman
Emperors, or supreme civil powers in
" By powers," he says, " we are to un
derstand the Deputies of the Emperors,
&c, and all such aa are in authority un
der the supreme powers. whAravnr
Mr. Cox also referred the Cnnron tn
Paul to the Romans " Let every soul
be subjected to the higher powers For
there is no power but of God Whomso
ever, therefore, resisteth the power, resis
teth the ordinance of God j and they that
resist shall receive to themselves damna
tion for rulers are not a terror to good
works, but to the evil.. Wilt thou not
then be afraid of the power? Do that
which is good and thou shalt have praise
of the same." See 13th chapter, 1st, 2d
and 3d verses.
Mr. Cox then sustained his position by
citations from Adam Clarke, Daniel Web
ster, Henry Clay and others.
Mr. Cox also stated that if a church
member, a professing Christion or a real
Christian is to be prohibited irora noiuing
office under the government to which he
belongs, by the Church of which he is a
member, and that the laws of this coun
try are to be executed and observed ex
clusively by non-professors, it ought to be
As to resigning bis situation as Deputy
United States Marshal, (which be was re
quested to do,) be said he would when
be saw proper ; and, in the meantime, the
Church might do, and he presumed it
would, in his case, just what it pleased.
After he left the meeting, a vote was
taken, and he was excommunicated by a
vote of 22 to 12 the whole number of
bers being about 150.
OUR NATURALIZED CITIZENS.
The New York Herald, of the 16th ult,,
contains a long letter from the Hon. John
Minor Uotts, of Virginia, addressed, whilst
on a visit to New York, to a number of
native and foreign born citizens of the
United States, who had requested his
opinion in reference to the recent note of
the becretary of btute, upon the subject
of naturalization. The note referred to,
is that written by Gen. Cass on the 17th
of May, to Mr. Felix Li Clere, (a native
of France, but a naturalized citizen of the
United States, who resides at Memphis,
Tennessee) in which, in reply to the in
quiry from Mr. LeClere, he stated that
"it is understood that the French Gov
ernment claims military service from all
natives of France who may be found with
in its jurisdiction. Your naturalization
in this country will not exempt you from
that claim if you should voluntarily re
pair thither." These statements of Gen.
Cass have been constructed as a declara
tion, on the part of the Administration,
that it did not recognize naturalized cit
izens who might place themselves volun
tarily within the jurisdiction of the gov
ernments of which they once were sub
jects, as entitled to any protection from
the government of the United States,
and with this construction they have
been severely criticised. Mr. Botts
condemns the course of tho Administra
tion, and denounces tho principle laid
down by Gen. Cass, as a pusillanimous
and detestable dmstrine, and asserts that
a naturalized citizen of the United States,
is free to go whereverjvinds and waves
may carry him, and wherever he may go,
is entitled to the protection of the govern
ment. So, after all the affectionate blar
ney about National Democratic love for
" furriners," it seems that American citi
zenship is mere mockery. If one puts
himself outside the shelter of the " eagle"
he has to " root hog or die."
DIED On Hie 25th of . June of Typhoid Fo
ver, at LU residence in iMniirne (.'ountv, Miss ,
Edward J.C'iiAMrnts eldext son of K. K.hikI
Lucy O. Chamber, of Aleekieiiliwi-g Vi., in the
thirty-first year of bis iie.
But few short work ago, our beloved nod
cherished friend wag wi:h us, lu the full vigor
and strength of unuhood, with prospects for n
hnppy, honorable mid useful eureer, seldom pon-
sessed by one m young. Open and undisguised
in all his nets, and a mind coiM'ious of its recti
tude, be knew no policy, stive the dictates of bis
own conscience, uml the promptings of Iiix own
honest and manly heart; purely : unselfish in all
bis feelings by nature, he was generous and chari
table to a fault. But now, he is gone ; a space is
left vacant in his once happy but now desolate
home in our community in hearts of bis
devoted wife and bereaved reUtl J, and his ma
ny warmly atttached friends. How truly do
we feel that the place he filled in our hearts shall
be no more occupied forever. The icy hand
of the Destroyer has chilled his noble heart, and
that loved form now sleeps in the passionless em
brace of Death.
" Dust thou art, and unto dust sbalt thou re
turn" is a serious and important admonition i it
teaches us that however happy we may consider
ourselves here, our enjoyments must be fleeting,
and the day is not far distant when death shall
place us like our brother, on a level with the clod,
under which we shall repose.
Sad, dent and dark be th tears that we ahed ;

But the night dew that falls, tho1 la silence It rolls,
