Some Cabbages. Mr. White has
showed us some cabbages that are some
in point of size. One measured 5 feet
and 2 inches in diameter; and the leaves
were 23 inches in breadth by 27 in length.
The Circis. Last Saturday every
body went to the circuaV and of course
was delighted. Intense heat, a closely

Rro wonderful generators of laughter.
OCT It is remarked that though there
are three Democratic papers in Wash

Douglas was contributed to the National
Intelligencer.

and Messrs. Meek, Walker, For.-yth and
Overall, for the lower House.
fjT President Buchanan has formally
demanded satisfaction of Mexico for. the

f3F Major Hubbard, a farmer of this
vicinity, owns a family of 6 negroes,
whose ages amount in the aggregate to
about four hundred and seventy-five
years. The mother is an ancient looking
Degress, who says she's " gwine on two
hundred." Her youngest child is sixty
years old.
, EST About the neatest watering place
puff we've seen is in the Washington
States. A correspondent attended a
party somewhere, where he saw Miss
Butt, who is fair to behold, (not beauti
ful,) of fascinating manners, and splendid
ly endowed with worldly benefit! ! She
is worth a puff, surely.

It is a strong ticket, and will doubtless
put through the Buchanan Hunkers on a
fast line.
(& A little girl, of this viciutty, says
the Grand Junction, (Tenn.) Quid Nunc,
was cured of a rattlesnake bite reoently,
by tho Use of a strong decoction of white
ash leaves, taken internally, and also ap
plied to the wound. The decoction was
not used until the day after she was bit

bis life. Sue is said to be abundantly
rich, but objected to the alliance, in
consequence of a difference of religion.
That has been obviated by the ceremony
at Mobile.
CP Last week we intended, but neg
lected, to return our thanks to friend
"Jugg" of the Examiner for the very
flattering manner in which he speaks of
Major Richardson. We do feel pro
foundly grateful, but, in truth, can scarce
ly belfeva the flattering strain. We're
loth to think be meant it
" Ironic satire, tidliut klinied,"
though we barely excuse the phraisin
terms. We'll pay you, old fellow.
BLACK MAIL.
The States, a leading democratic pa
per, at Washington, exposes, with a bold
ness peculiarly characteristic, another of
ficial corruption, which Its shrewdness
has detected. It charees the Constitu
tion (the Administration organ) with
levying black mail upon the Department
officials, who are dependeut upon their
places for a living. The proprietor of
the Constitution, seemingly clothed in the
authority of official sanction, demands
that each and every clerk employed shall
subscribe to a levy of six dollars, as a
years subscription to his imbecile news
paper. And this sytcm.of robbery re
ceives the sanction of tho President?
If this species of galling despotism has
to be resorted to, in order to bolster up
and sustain tbo fortunes of his organ,
what a deep place in the contempt of the
people must our President occupy J , It
may be that tho paper is so devoid of In
terest, ability, or enterprise, that it can
not command tho appreciation and sup
port of the public; but we credit 'Mr.
Buchanan with discrimination enough to
pick out a good organ grinder. An au
thority must have descended low Indeed,
in the depths of self-abasement when it
has so prostituted its high powers as to
oppress those it employs in public busi
ness, and take money from the pockets of
the needy by a process, morally, no less
criminal than highway robbery. Our
Government certainly ought to be ablo
to employ a nobleman to edit its organ
when it makes poor dependants pay the
expense!
TUB ElItOrEAM WAR. "
The rapidity with which the Austrians
have been driven within their strong
holds, has exceeded all calculations. In
this particular the progress of Louis Na
poleon has been like that of his uncle in
some of his most remarkable campaigns.
The battle of Magenta was fought on the
4th and 5th of June. The allies were
then just beyond the Ticino. J ust twen
ty days afterward, on a memorable anni
versary that of St. John the Baptist
occurred the great battle of Solferino, of
which we have as yet only imperfect ac
counts. In the interval all Lombardy
had been evacuated by the Austrians,
without making any intermediate stand,
beyond what was necessary to protect
their retreat.
The news of the last battle, Solferino,
is meagre and inexplicit. The allies,
claim a victory, and the Austrians con
fess a defeat. Several thousand, we pre
sume, were killed probably 20,000 on
each side.
A London paper says it is the opinion
of tho best informed English statesmen,
that peace will follow in a few weeks, or
we may expect a general European war.
Louis Napoleon is arranging to make
Piedmont and Sardinia support his troops
there. "
Kossuth is said to be in favor with the
French Emperor. He has authority, it
is stated, to use bis influence to create a
revolt among the Hungarians. On this
side of the water, it is stated that the ac
complishment of bis object would only
increase the war feeling in Germany, and
oblige Prussia to join with Austria.
That done, Russia enters the field, and
then all of them, it is believed, will get
by the ears. England alone seems de
termined to keep aloof. Its new ministry
has declared its intention to maintain a
rigid neutrality. This mere declaration
will have a great influence on the war.
The Nominees Of the State Con
vention dont seem to be received by all
the faithful with open ' arms. The Mon
ticello Journal (Dem.) says PettuS is two
slow a cock for a Mississippi Governor ;
that he has not got fire and brimstone
enough in his' composition to meet the
combustible present and ominous future
It does not matter, though, whether he
has the nerve for crises, he will be voted
for, as a Mississippi matter of course
But really, this is a serious charge against
the candidate for the jiighest office in tho
State, and we are surprised at the temer
ity of the Journal. Its democratic breth
ren ought to 'read it out.'
H. S. Foote. In tho Memphis En
quirer we see a letter, written by this
gentleman, explaining the reasons why
he has declined to run for Congress in
the Vicksburg district. He says : '
Had I regarded it as at all probable
that the African Slave Trade question
would form a prominent issue in the pend
ing Congressional contest, there was no
sacrifice which I would not cheerfully
have incurred in order to meet the wishes
of those who have in such various forms,
in different parts of the District, and with
out regard to ancient party names, or
worn-out party issues, called upon me to
participate in the fierce struggle for as
cendency now about commencing in Mis
sissippi, and which, however it shall re
sult, it is to be hoped will not prove as
disastrous to the best interests of the
country, as at one time there seemed to
be so much reason to apprehend would
be the case.
Ml'Mt ll'AL ELECTION.
For some days past we've heard a deal
said about our approaching municipal
election. The candidates for the various
offices, and their friends, have teen stir
ring around, and excitement is rising fast.
Indeed, talking town politics is the only
way our citizens have for driving away
the dull and lonesome hours in these hot
days. We confess to a vast interest in
this election, and as a matter of course
it cannot be expected that we intend to
be a neutral spectator. No I We shall
shout " Hurahl for our side," and "Go
it, our man !" with a vim equal to the
best. We know of no candidates, except
those whose names can be found at the
head of our first column, and if any otb
ers have the temerity to suppose they
can " tie it on" to those who are liberal
enough to announce their names, tbey
will be pretty apt, about the night of the
election day, to find themselves 'coming
out at the little end of the horn.'
T. B. Shearer, Esq., the present wor
thy and efficient Mayor, is a clever gen
tleman, and an able Magistrate. His
popularity is well able to crush, in defeat,
the opposition that thus far has presumed
to show itself, and we regard his trl
umphant reelection as a fixed fact. The
only objection if objection it be that
we have ever heard urged against him is
that some steam-engine natures don't
think he is fast enough too tortoisd-like.
This imputation is undeserved, and under
present circumstances, is in poor taste.
A tortoise is slow and sure ; a snail is
slow and slippery.
Mr. Thompson announces himself a
candidate for town constable. He , will
doubtless make a faithful, energetic offi
cer.
Terrible Explosion. Tho Vicks
burg Whig, of the 2d instant, learns that
some scoundrel placed a keg of powder
under the Court House of Claiborne coun
ty. Miss., a few days previous, set fire to
it, and blew the Court House to atoms
About half the building was blown down.
The Sheriff's office (adjoining) was des
troyed, and its .vault, containing about
ten thousand dollars, robbed. About a
hundred dollars were picked up in the
streets, evidently blown there by the ex
plosion. Some young men rooming im
mediately over the- powder had their
rooms tumbled about with them, but all
escaped entirely unhurt. Loss of build
ing estimated at from $10,000 to $12,000-
No clue tn the perpetrators.
Footeism. The Vicksburg Whig is
hard on Gov. Foote. See t
It would seem that this disease has
broken out in Mississippi, judging from
the manner in which men accept nomina
tions one day and decline the next, and
vice versa. We hope no man will con
sider this as personally applied to himself.
Gov. loote has addressed a letter to
the Hon. Walker Brooke, of this city,
which appears in the Memphis Enquirer,
in relation to his declination of the can
vass in this district. As the Governor's
views are of monstrous little interest down
this way, just at this time, we can't find
space for this elaborate epistle.

" Opposition" Convention. A con
vention of those opposed to the present
national administration, assembled in
J ackson on the 1 1th Inst. C1. Patridge,
of "Warren, offered a resolution, which
was unanimously adopted, declaring it
inexpedient to make nominations. A
State central committee was appointed
to attend to the interests of the organi
zation, whereupon the convention ad
journed.
Hoo Cholera. A Kentuckian gives
the following as an " almost certain cure"
and an absolutely " infallible preventive"
of hog cholera : . .
Well mix and pulverize sulphur, 4 lbs.;
madder, 4 do.; saltpetre; 2 do.; black
antimony, 2 do. If your hogs are sick,
give to each one tablespoonful twice a
day, night and morning, until cured. As
a preventive, give to each one tablespoon
ful twice a week. .
' BREVITIES.
The W. P. Broad-axe of the 13th inst,
says : 472,500 lbs of iron for the M. & O.
R. R. arrived yesterday. .. .
The Charleston Mercury announces
the death of Capt. Robt. Cunningham
the father of Miss. Cunningham, the
President of the Mount Vernon Associa
tion. " Ton," the Washington corresponded
of the Baltimore Sun, says that advices
from Cbilhuahua render it probable that if
the Church party prevail in Mexico some
of the Northern provinces will declare
their independence and solicit annexation
to the United States. Gen. Viduarri has
this resort in view, as is said, and that is
one of the reasons for inviting the co-operation
of American volunteers.
The New York Tribune says t "Dan
iel E. Sickles and his wife have resumed
their marital relations.' Oh ! fashion.

HOMETHINO TO BE KEMEIHUEItED.
' So full of life and soul our Joys have boon,
We've almost scatteredjife to all things round,"
' Mn. Editor : On last Monday by the
waters of the Soonkatonchle, there we
sat down, yea and (did not weep) laughed,
for we thought of pleasure. Without
any equivocation I don't suppose there
has ever been a more delightful day pass
ed since "the morning stars sang to
gether," when earth put on all her glory,
and invited man to participate in all her
pleasures. Wit, beauty, grace, elegance,
all were there, and besides these there
was much swine ham and eggs. It
seemed to me like a dream, for soon af
ter I got there 1 felt like a " stranger in
asrange land," quite dimunative in so
large a crowd, and didn't know any ono.
So I took myself very quietly off' and
waited long and patiently. Soon my
heart began to beat with gladness, for
" I looked up the road and saw the dust
rising." I knew somebody was coming
with whom I was acquainted. Sure
enough they came many of 'em. Ea
ger to display my gallantry, I hurried
through the crowd to a party of young
ladies, who tyere already engaged in a
lively conversation. Though they were
standing in the sun, it was very agreea
ble sunshine. I felt like I was in some
Eden land, with the flowers of Paradise
exhaling iheir sweetness all round me.
It was too much pleasure to drink in the
nectared words as they fell like dewdrops
from the lips of those gliding by us.
Among those passing, I saw several I
would like to blot out the remainder of
my days with. Who does not admire
Miss G. P., and the fall of her fairy foot,
as she moves with unaffected grace and
beauty. Truly did a friend of mine say,
" She seeks hearts not waiting'for con
sent. Like sudden death that snatches
unprepared. Like fire from heaven scarce
seen so soon as felt." Next come Miss
S. G., whom we would all love. Each
one whispers as she passes, "you are too
pure for this sinful world.'J, Every move
ment is dignity, and'every smile is a cup
full of joy. When I am with her I feel
like "one who would change the worship
of all climates, and make a new religion
where'er sho comes, unite tho differing
faiths of all the world to idolize her face."
There was another, Miss R. M., who
apart from her companions, is like a lone
star, bathed in the blue of heaven, and
sheds an ocean of light on all around.
Some one says she is from the far and ro
mantic west ; ' for her form is fresher than
the morning rose, when the dew wets its
leaves unstained and pure, as is the lily
or the mountain suow.' There is still an
other, Miss F. L., who is like a joyous
dewdrop just fallen from a midnight sky.
It did not require words, vain, senseless
words, to understand her, for,
" Her heart was on her lips, and her soul within
t her eyes,
Soft as ber clime and sunny as her tikies."
If I knew every one that was there I
could write a Volume. But suffice it to
say, I never before saw so much beauty
congregated together. I would say to
all those who like to associate with intel
ligent, large hearted folks, and to those
who want any grinding done, to go to
" Gladney's Mills."
' Incog.
OT The Corinth Republican, a Demo
cratic paper, has hoisted the name of Ste
phen A. Douglas, for President, and Ja
cob Thompson, for Vice-President. The
same paper says : ;
We learn that a meeting of the Oppo
sition will take place at Holly Springs on
the 4th Monday of this inst ., to nominate
a candidate for Congress in this district.
What issues are to be placed before the
people of the district, we are not apprised.
but if it is. to oppose- any disturbance of
tne peace measures of 1850 and 54, and
endorsed by the people on two occasions,
or to oppose a revival of the foreign slave
trade, (which are the only living issues in
Mississippi) wo say if this is the nature
of the opposition, we are for its nominee.
s Verily, which way does the stream of
politics run. Does anybody, in these
days, know what party he belongs to 1
Struck by Lightning.
The house of one of flur townsmen, Mr.
Ragsdaler was struck by lightning on
Thursday last, during the thunder-storm
which visited our city. The lightning
passed down the chimney and struck one
of Mr. R.'s daughters, prostrating her and
rendering her insensible until medical aid
was called in and she jras restored. ' The
stroke struck her about the head and pass
ed down her body tearing her clothing off,
and completely annihilating 0e of her
shoes. Though she was considerably
bruised, she is speedily recovering and
will, doubtless, be as well as ever in a
few days. Conservative.
A Western orator having deliver
ed himself of the following : " Tho glo
rious American eagle, which stands with
one foot on the Atlantic and the other on
the Pacifio coasts," was unable to nro-
ceed any further. A bystander exclaim
ed "My friend, if you don't relieve
your eagle pretty soon he will split open."
THE BATTLK OF 8QLFERINO.
The Times publishes a letter written
upon the battle field of Solferino. which
states that the battle commenced just
before 5 o'clock in the morning of the
24tn ult. . ' f ;
The Austrians had crossed tho Mincio
for the purpose of attacking the Allied
army, and had taken up a strong position
on the hill near Castiglione.
The French attacked the position with
great impetuosity, and soon drove the en
emy from the nearest points to tho town,
and pursued them into the small village
on the plain below, the first of which was
the village of Solferino, at which point
the Austrians made a stand and disputed
every inch of ground, fighting with the
utmost desperation. .
Hero the hottest of the battle was
fought the Austrians being driven out of
Soltenno by the heroic band of French
under the command of Gen. Neil!, return
ed again and again to the charge, twice
retaking the position, and it was bot un
til the French had .driven them out for
the third time that the Austrians finally
abandoned the place, and concluded to
stay cut.
The brunt of this terrible conflict for
the possession of Solferino was borne by
the corps of 50,000 under Gen. Nelll who
was created a Marshal of France ou the
field.
The possession of Solferino enabled
Gen. Neill to pierce the Austrian centre,
and to him and his gallant corps is ascn
bed the highest credit, as being chiefly
instrumental in the success of tho Allies.
The people of the villago of Solferino
took part in the battle against the French,
firing from their windows and the tops of
their houses, which compelled the 1 rench
to burn the town.
The Austriatns fell back on Volta, and
planted formidable batteries on tho verge
of the hills surrounding the place, and
about one mile from the river Mincio.
Tho French attacked their position
and captured it at the point of the bayo
net, after a terrible cannonade of one
hour, when a part of tbo Austrian army
crossed the Mincio, retreating along the
whole line. The battle continued to
rage with terrible carnage over the re
gion northwest of the lino running through
Castiglione, holfenno and Volta, the Aus
trians continually retreating after making
temporary stands and keeping up a sharp
cannonade to protect, their retrogade
movements.
A tremendous thunder storm occurred
during the battle, and the combatants
were obliged to sunpend operations for
about an hour. After the thunder storm,
a heavy cannonading commenced on the
extreme left of the entire field, (fifteen
miles in extent,) and on the borders of
the Lake, northeast from Castiglione, and
west or rrcschiera.
This p:oved to have, been occasioned
by the attack of tho Sardinian army, un
der King Victor Emanuel, and a most
sanguinary conflict followed.
DE.MOCltATlt! PLATFORM.
We publish tho following Platform as
an item of news. It gives Douglas the
short end of the swingletree t
The following platform was adopted
by the State Convention, without a dis
senting voice :
Resolved, That wo re-announco as the
basis of party action the pla'.form of prin
ciples laid down by the Democratic party
at the National Conve ntion of 1856 ; and
bold that the doctrine of " non-intervention"
with the iiiMitution of slavery in
States, Territories, or District of Colum
bia, does not, Lor ws it, intended to con
flict with tho. assertion if tho power ol
Congress to protect tint ' properly of the
citizens of the several States, who miq
chouse to settle in the Territories, which
are the common property of all the States.
Resolred, That in the language of the
Supreme Court of the United States, that
" the right of property in slaves is dis
tinctly and expressly affirmed in the Con
stitution" and " the only power over it
conferred upon Congress, is the power
coupled with the duty of guarding and
protecting the owners in their rights," as
thus declared. ,
Resolved, That Mississippi will stand
by her sister slave-holding States in in
sisting upon the enforcement by all the
departments of the federal government
of their constitutional rights as thus ex
pounded by the Supreme Court of the
United Stales.
Resolved, That in the e ventof the elec
tion of a Black Republican candidate for
the Presidency, by the suffraces of one
portion of the Union only, to rule over
tne wnoie united States, upon the avow
ed purpose of that organization. Missis
sippi will regard it as a declaration of
hostility, and will hold herself in readi
ness, seperately or in concert, to co-operate
with her sister States of the South,
in whatever measures they may deem
necessary for the maintenance of their
rights as co-equal members of the con
federacy., Resolved, That we feel it incumbent
upon the Democracy of Mississippi again
to declare that the acquisition of Cuba
by the United States is a ConitriArnial
and political necessity, and that we will
nan witn pleasure every proper measure
that looks to its aocomDlishment. and fur.
ther, we can neve consent to its appropri
ation uy any ioreign power.
Resolved, That we endorse, in the main,
the policy of the present administration.
